Before this .issue of the Leader  reaches its' many out of'town subscribers, the steel will bo laid to' tins place  and Moyie City will have a railroad.  At eight o'clock this'morning the  track was laid to a mile this side "of  the tunnel, or within six miles of here,  and this evening it will be at Oarifeul's  place, about two miles east of town.  If the tracklayers .work tomorrow they  will pass through town about noon,'  and will reach the foot of the' lake by  evening. ' ��� * ���  The approach of the iron .'horse  in  Moyie City will be hailed with delight,  especially by the   early  settlers,  v/htf  blazed  their   way   into   the  country  years ago, and  who  suffered  all  the  hardships and  privations  which    accompany frontier .life.   To many living in Moyie a  railway   train  will  be  quite a novelty, they not  having seen  one for months.   However/ this long  waiting is at an end.  A railroad means the infusion, of  new'life and vigor into Moyie.', It  open's up a ' source cf. transportation  for tho mine owners and enables them'  to immediately  commence   the  ship  HAIiBWAEE,  CKR0CEBIE3,  PRODUCE,  ��*JSt.".tfa^fcrf��rf, jfeifcjJL^ sb^ir^^ ^._  ALL  KKJDS  OP  fr  ��  CLOTHING,  ���5 ��� DONE ���  -J   TIN ROOFING A SPECIALTY  I' Gents' Furnishings,.'

Fletcher  has established offices at Cranbrook  and Swansea, and it was his intention  to establish an office here, but was  compelled to abandon the idea on ac  count of E. H. Small, whose application for postmaster'was accepted, re-  fusingto take the office. And here  the matter must C8tand until another  name has been, ratified.  LOCAL   MEWS.

Small's name was  sent in,by some "one, and was confirmed. Mr. Small was then' a resident of Moyie, but is at present making his home in Fort Steele, and consequently refuses to take over the  office.   , l  The paramount issue now is to have''  another man appointed as quickly as  possible. Mr. Moore's application is  already in but as to whether, or not it  frill be accepted is yet a question.  If not another name should be immediately sent in. But no time  should be lost in attending to the  matter.

Tlie increased payroll  will justify the establishment of more  substantial business firms in all  branches, and make it, also a city of  homes.  The fact of Moyie being a most  delightful summer resort as well as a  business center must not be lost sight  of, ancl it is safe to say that with the  improved ti asportation facilities hundreds of people will flock here during  the heated season and turn the shores  of Moyie lake into a veritable Manhat-,  tan beach.  The revelation wrought in the mail  service is a,lso a great feature, and our  mail will now come to. us regularly  and 'in leather pouches instead of  in gunny sacksas has been the case.  Men with capital will now be eager  to come here for the purpose of investing  their   money   in   the promising  mineral   claims   surrounding" Moyie,  and the prospectors   who  came  into  the country from five to eight years ago  carrying their blankets  and   grub   on  their backs and located  will be able to  dispose of their holdings, which  they  have clung to all these years  awaiting  the advent of the railway.

that the sender was likowi. o easy and firm J

a time a pause ci.mo, and the JScw Yorker
in qui red: i

In addition to this a .large  number of laborers .yr.eKe brought from'  the east under a misconception of the  conditions, only to find that they ,had  .virtually contracted themselves .into a  condition of slavery. _  ���    On the western portion of ihe road  the sub-contractors were permitted  to  T>av their laborers .what  they consid-  ,ered their labor worth, aiid it is worthy  .of note that tho  men   who -had  tbe  actual work of construction  in hand  .considered it necessary in their own  interests to .pay  a uniformly -higher  Trate of wages than  the  C.'P.

TOE LA BOURGOGNJE HOKWOJJ.  Since the terrible fate that befell the  passengers on board the French steam-  fir La Bourgogne much speculation  jhas arisen as to the liability of the  JFrench crew under the charges  brought against them in connection  with the sinking of' the ship. It' is  well settled that the law in England  and the United States is adverse to the  crew.  A similar case was tried in Philadelphia several years ago, and the1 story  connected with it is au interesting  one. The ship William Brown sank  off the coast of Nova Scotia. The passengers and crew overloaded the boats.  After drifting for several days a storm  came up, making it evident that the  overloaded boat which a man named  Holmes commanded would be  ���swamped and all lost. Under these  circumstances he gave the order to  lighten thc boat. Twelve passengers  were thrown overboard, and two sis-  sea.  ters voluntaiily jumped into the  The remainder of thc passengers in  the boat, and thc crow were saved and  taken to Philadelphia. Holmes was  indicted, tried and convicted, and the  United States court sustained the conviction on the ground that tho contract of the sailor bound him to use  every means in his power, ,cvcn to sacrifice his own life, to deliver each passenger at the port for winch he  shipped. Much sympathy throughout the country was manifested for  Holmes in this case from its purely  doctrinal law, and, its being a case of  first impression, his sentence was,commuted to imprisonment. After 18  months he was released, but the principle that tlie sailor owed a duty to.]  passengers, even to the sacrifice of his  own life, was established.  England   every  day  grows more emphatic      and      Incontrovertible     The  newspapers .contain ^almost daily accounts of awful murdera or attempts to  murder by persona usually unknown,  \vho have made good their escape from  the little isolated carriages   and * left  their victims to be * V-^iscpvereicl"    in  some casual fashion.   Only a few .days  ago  another horrible   tragedy,    that  might have occurred to anybody in tho  same situation, took place during the  short railway ride of not more than 20  minutes between Hounslow station and  the great'London .terminus, Waterloo.  A  woman,  a barmaid from a tavern  close to the Hounslow station, got into  a ,carr. age  alone,  and  her body waa  found on .the arrival of the train at Waterloo H,t,u|iled .under .a seat, the   head  horribly battered.   She had started out  to meet her lover, and in the train must  have been attacked and murdered by  some brute, whose identity up tb the  present is undiscovered.  The horror of the -thing must appeal  strongly to every woman who hoe ever  been in London or is acquainted with  the English method of travel. Tho uppermost object of the ordinary man or  woman who travels a l0Dg.or short distance is to get into a carriage alone. In  the small, cramped compartments you  feel in too close quarters to want to be  bothered with strangers, thereforo  you naturally do your best to get into  a carriage where yo,u won't bo "worried.-" But recent dreadful events have  made people nervous of the lonely carriage. Women shun it because  of awful stories of violence and  ,-ha.ve  NELSON,  Baker St., NELSON, B.

Hon, Mr. Mulock, postmaster gen-  eral, is exciting so much interest in  Englund that the newspapers are looking up his pedigree. With their usual  modesty, Irishmen.are claiming him.

The days of the old English "compartments" are, indoed, numbered, and It will not be long, I am sure,  before "American trains" are the rule  on every line ln the kingdom.  Traveling in England is very expensive work, at any rate.   The fares bo-  5ng-divided into three classes, the very  poorest and meanest, accommodations,'  which they call "third class," cost about  the .same rate which in   America   is  charged for the ordinary train.-  If you  have,A.third-class ticket, however, you  cannot buy a Pullman car ticket..   To  be  entitled  to  purchase superior accommodation of thiB kind you must primarily invest in" a "first-class" ticket,,  which-costs three times'the amount of  a third .class, and not until then aue you  allowed to buy Pullman car accommodations.   If yoti are going for a long  journey, (or as long a one as you can  take in England) this makes the cost |  about four times the amount you would  pay if you did not have a luxurious soul  and long for springs and cushions.  I hear, however, that to meet the demand of the vast body of Americans  who are coming over here ilfor the  "diamond jubilee," there is to bo a  complete.bouleversement of the train  service in Great Britain, and cars nnoh  as wo are accustomed to in the states,  and prices to match,���'will be one of the  white stones marking the latter glev  Hcs of her majesty's sixtieth year upon  the throne.���Chicago Timeo-Herald,  MYTH  MINING BROKERS.
