O.-^Through the  well organized work of the Secret Ber-,  vice department of the Canadian Pa-"'  cific railway, assisted by the < Pinker'-  tona of Chicago, during the past six  months, an organized association has  been discovered including in its membership railway conductors, ticket  agents, hotel runners, baggagemen  and others, both in and out of the  company's employ, whose operation in  the Kootenay district alone have involved a Ioes to-the road of between  half a million,and a million dollars.  It is only within the past week that  .Secret Service Agent Burne and his  first assistant, H. A. Jan son,' have regarded flieir case 'as complete, and  yesterday a preliminary secret investigation, or, rather, courtmartial of interested employees, opened at Nelson'.-  ft is with regard to the lines in the  Kootenay ininin^canips that tlie evidence 13 perfected and wholesale dismissals will follow, prosecutions for  conspiracy also being decided upon iu  all,, cases  where  convictions   can be  i t  made'to stick.  ���   The organizer of the .system which  involves the repeated re-use of the regulation   tiekets   and   of  an elaborate  system of hat checks so punched'as to  carry   the   special    passenger   along  without interference anywhere  within  ihe-free-masonry of the  ring,  is supposed'to have been  Conductor Woods  of Rossland, who  has' been  with   the  company since the construction* of the  road, and who, with   Conductor  Cbes--  ley is held for punishment with Agents  JRidpath and Clemen is.   There are believed to be several  hundred   involved  in the ring and developments promise  to be of ahighly sensational character..  The present upheaval is a  seciuel to  the''flasfi in'the pan,".-which" almost  resulted in a   trainmen's   strike' two  mouths or less ago,  when   the, special  service   men   suddenly   took' up the"  conductor's   work   on   trains   on the  mam'line in a endeavor to. patch them  napping.  To ascertain whether the conspiracy charged can be fastened upon individuals is the reason for inquiry,  while ihe dismissal of one of the accused during the week just past is an  indication of a general chan__e of the  staff that ia to come. This nian  threatened to shoot one of the Secret  Service agents, commonly known as  ���'spotters," who had been instrumental  in the discovery of the railroaders'  scheme.  .Everyone knows how the Kootenay  and Boundary Creek mining country  has been building up during the past  few years. So fast have mines been  discovered, and such has been the rush  of prospectors, mining men and merchants into the country that cities  have been springing up e*v*erwhere.  The railroad  development could not  ���vith Bossland in the Kootenay camp,  and,hence the great chance for the  i ail way men to carry, on thp profitable  business ihey have traneaefced.  The actions of four railway men are  the immediate subjects of inquiry.  Two are conductors and two are agents  ,pf tfie company. The trains'running  between l^ossland and Greenwood are  only two,-one going each way every'  day but Sunday,' and the conductors  of these are selected as defendants . in  the investigation,  A large number of tickets had  been  orjjipally   purchase'-!' from, the  company and money paid therefor  or the  scheme could never have been worked.  These tickets  were   resold,   the .conductor going each way .taking up thia  ticket and giving out a hat check with  which all travelers  are  familiar.    <��he  tickets were taken up by  the conductors going either way and  returned to  private agents in the centers  of "population to bs'resold   again   and  again.  The  selling, agents' referred  to "were  chiefly hotel runners in    such   places  as .Greenwood and Rossland,' who  became well acquainted ' with men traveling in that country.     They  are  always in a, rush  aud -,-w-ould ��� be-'-apv  proached.   with'   the',.suggestion  .that  tickets   could   be. purchased "at much  Jess through them than  the  ordinary  tariff.'   Most of this'profitable business  was 'transacted in barrooms and  even  in worse places and it is' through  this  fact that the undoing of  the  authors  and   principals   or 'the   scheme was  brought about.    '   A ' '    "A*    "  ��  After the .man. had- bought his  crookod ticket he would be given a  note to the conductor or would' be introduced to him.. He yjould go aboard  the train, and the conductor in-col-  lecting fares would take up the ticket  in the . ordinary way,-and hand the  traveler a hat checS, -'signifying the,  point of destination.' " This check  would be punched three times in a  straight line, signifying "he's all right"  ea'ch'punch meaningpneword.,.^;As.^a,.  further tip,to any of the conspirators  in the business that the holder-.of the;  check had got his ticket from one oi  the' gang,   the   words- *o*ere .written,  ���''show this man the scenery.'"     -   The holder of this hat check .would  be passed ou'from hand-to- hand with  credentials indicatjng to the trained  eye that he had bought iris ticket from  the traiomeps' syndica te. _. . The. de.-  teetive department has tlir&ugh-'.ifcs  Hgents succeeded now in obtaining  copies of the ."special syndicate"'tickets and checks that have been purchased or given in' this m'ahVer. ��},';-1'.?  By talking too freely, being too'  greedy or pernaps growing earless, the  whole scheme has been exposed. Men  who were working for $65 a month  were spending that much .possibly in  anight. They had become more than  careless as money was -flowing in   too  wero suspected of handling the syndicate tickets would not do any outside  business whatever.  The secret service system changed,  A man was sent in who obtained a job  in Greenwood as a bartender. Another  got a position as a driver a-f a hotel  bus., Still another worked in a store.  All after a time beca'me' intimate, with-  some of the conductors.

It will be remembered that on the  western cfivisieu a^stiiko was nearly  caused about two months ago by auditors going aboard the train without  warning and demanding bell-punohes  and rc-oords from conductors, treating  them as passengers to the nest division point'and taking entire charge Of  the train.  This time the men were sent iu as  loivg as two or three months in advance. They obtained positions in  the country. Some worked in stoics  with which the suspected men dealt.  Others wore commercial travelers apparently goinc; to and fro making good  arc   hard   to t;ot in any of the trams, j ^^ Qf the;iselveSi aUliys haviug a  cigar or a llask to   offer  the  trainmen  and   having    money   lo spend in the  new it! natur.iliy oarrUH ia day coach-'  en ouK*.

In spite of the fact that they knew of  their own> knowledge that men had  been-purchasing these-off-color tickets  it,was several weeks before any one of  the specials could" 'directly 'secure a  sample ticket. ,' Oue of the ' special  agent?, a -hotel runner in'" ,'llossland  got out one night presumably. its a  roving prospector out on a good time  with a1 local'hotel runner. He _finalj.y  succeeded ' in " purchasing one of the  tickets-/'     '   " , '-  ' This experience of'the special agent  having   been "reported   to   the  head  officers,, it convinced . them   that   all  that was "required was more evidence.  The men in Greenwood_ acting for the  deputy  were   instructed , to associate  freely in barrooms with the runners at  that end as it" was expected they   were  getting earless from ,t4eir_?,ucc;ess.     it  was not more.thau a few days, before  they had, personally seen  ticket's  sold  by the runners to other men ' going  to,  ���Rossland,.. The   syndicate -men  were  doing a land' office ��� business,  and  all  the"  runners, in--the-Sootenays were  either in  the  combination  or  oceas;-  ionally got a^pharjce.tb'make"' a  dollar  or two by cringing ticket men or get-?

Roads were finished and  before tho railroad had been properly  ballasted, passengers were fighting for  seats in the cars to get from one mining discovery to another.  The passenger traflic between Rossland r.ml Greenwood has been and is  something enormous.    Even now seat.'!  The  distance   between  Rossland  and'  Greenwood is 120 miles, and thc   busi  barrooms   at   eiilicr   end   of the run.  '    ��� -"    -"JXIne "ExpJosioJi.  .���'���piarksb"urg;-W.' Va., Nov.. jB.^ast  night at midnight a terrible explosion  from firedamp 'occurred at the. coal  mines:p*f .the Southern Goal & Transport oompany at ��� Berryyills, Barbour  county, 'West' Virginia, The mine  employed almost 2Q0 men. , The explosion came without..warning. . Res-  .puers-surroun'ded .the mouth ol ' the  mouth of the shaft but were prevented  from entering"on account of the , fire  damp. It 13 not known how many  men were at workat the time, owinsr  'to the"fact that Berryviije is 50 miles  from here and practically without  communication. The force of the explosion was so great'* that two men  were found'60 feet from the mouth of  the mine. The sight v/as a most horrible one. Strewn along the main  channel about the opening were the  arms, legs, bauds and other portions  of the bodies of dead miners. The  miners insist that Jhe explosion was  caused b3T firedamp,  Mules were killed at the mouth of  tho mine and cars wero blowo. iQ feot  from the track, One man was blown  in two at the loins and big body  thrown against a pile of lumber at  the mouth of. the mine, The ' dead  were mutilated br-yond recognition,  and the scene was calculated to make  tho strongest heart fail. The explosion was probably the result of an accidental discharge of dynamilj caused  perhaps by con curs ion of a blabt.  The property loss is light. Operation;- will be re^umsd Mon-iy.

SATURDAY,  NOY. 10, 1900.  Shanty Town?  Thursday'   morning   our attention  was called to the fact   that   Moyie is  ^Just about to have a shanty town,  or  in other words a row, of low,  measley  ^backs'along   the  water front.     We  deem this an  unpardonable error on  "-"the part of our citizens, to allow   this  building   to   continue.       Our.   water  front is a very pretty one, and  we' are  ��ure there is no citizen but ��� what appreciates it; but if these shacks  continue we will have a view; from  town  -that will be disgusting and  an  eye-  ' acre to the   community.    Not only  from this fctandpoint should tho matter  be considered, but   in   regard  to the  property owners oh this "side   of   the  railroad as well.   Our office stands on  a $400 lot and the lots - adjoining are  as equal In value,  owing to the. fact  -that we have a splendid  view of  the  lake,   flfow if these shacks continue,  Montreal,   Nov., 7.���The   elections  throughout the Dominion   today  resulted in a   sweeping victory for  the  Liberals.     A    remarkable feature  of  the   contest   was  the fact that every  member of  the  government was returned while every Conserative  leader  of any prominence,  with   the   exception Haggart and Charles H. Tupper,  were defeated.     Hugh J. MacDonald  was defeated by  Hon.  Clifford Sifton  in Brandon;  sir Charles   Tupper was  dejeated in Nova Scotia, Montague was  defeated in   Haldimand,   and   Foster  was snowed under by Blair in St.John.  From   the  returns available it appears that the  Conseratives made, a  net gain of about 14 seats  in  Ontario  and three in Manitoba.    In  the Territories   and   British    Columbia ' no j  change   was   made   in the'respective  strength   of   the   parties.   Inv Prince  ^dward   Island   the  Liberals made a  net gain-of'one stat.   In  New Brunswick they gained fivei   In   Nova Scotia   they   gained   six   and in Quebec  they gained ten.   These figures give a  gain of 17 seats for  the Conservatives  as against a gain  twenty-two for  the  Liberals, which would make  the Liberal majority greater by five, from  the  returns available, than it  was in-" the  last house.

One of the textbooks still studied by
Chinese odicers is tho Sun-tse, which is
about ".',000 years old. Tho chnracteris:
lie feature of this workon Chinese military art is its insistence thnt'the general
ought before everything else to study
ruses, some of which nre not strictly
;onnectctl with war. The student of Sun-
(se is told to "negotiate with the enemy and while you nre discussing the
situation massacre him, sow discord in
his camp, intercept his provisions' nnd
soften his heart by voluptuous music and
the sight of beautiful women."
As; to military measures, the Chinese
ecncrnl receives the following advice:
"If you are ten times more numerous
than'the enemy, enveKip him; if you are
live times more numerous, dispose your
ni-inv so as to attack him on.four sides;
if you are only, a little stronger, content
yourself bv cutting your army in two (on
the principle of reserves), and if you are
weaker  than  the  enemy,   try   to  secure
IJnlilnesH  nnd   <Uo  Derby  Hat.
It is not the hat. hut the kind of hat,
whose wearing conduces to baldness.
The hat is necessary to keep the head
cool in summer, hut it should be the soft
felt hat. The vicious derby constricts tie
scalp,' keeps the blood away, kills the
hair! causing baldness. The felt hat does
not do this and does*not cause baldness.
Witness its- use in the south and the absence of haldness-yon-sec few bald men
there. Witness the use of (he derby nt
the north and the prevalence of baldness.

Once  .the writer saw a very jjuiok and pretty  instance of experiment by touch made  by a frightened" pony:   It was   being'  driven as leader hi a pony tandem, and  stopped short in front of where   the  rails of a steam tramway crossed the  road.   It first smelled the near rail, and.  then quickly gave it two taps with its  hoof.   After this it waa satisfied, and  croflsed the line.' On the other hand, a  donkey always tried to jump the shadows of .tree trunks on the road, though  a similar experiment of touch   would  have shown that theso wero as unreal  as the tram rail was 'siibatcntial.   Lastly, no horeo which haa onoo knocked  its head ag-akisi, tbo top of Ratable doorway &eerne quite able to get rid of the  illusion that there sita up in the top of  all doorways on invisible   something  which will hit him again nest time ho  goee through.   Efcuca the troublesome,  and    sometimes   incurable   habit   of  horees "jibbing" when taken out of the  stable.  This is an obvious instance of tho disadvantage at which most animals stand  in regard to meane of physical experiments. The horee, for instance, needs  only feel the lintel to find out that it is  fixed and does not move, and is not alive  ond waiting to hit him. But except Ida  lips, which ure ^oneitivo, ho has no  member with which he can make thio  experiment. Except the elephant and  the monkey, most of the "bJ��-her" ani-  mals suffer from this lock of tho means  of experiment.
