Price Tex Gents.  ;mIraculous escape.: .,  Frank McGowan Again Cheats Death of  a Victim,  One of the closest shaves from a  violent death  yet  occurring in  this  country fell to the lot of Frank McGowan, the popular fireman on the  ���Nakusp & Slocan Railway, on Friday  morning.    When the train   was in  ; the neighborhood of the Half Way, on.  :' its put, trip from  Nakusp, McGowan  climbed to the top of the tender to  throw down some wood.    In doing:so  ��� he slipped on a.cake of ice and went  ;  sailing overboard. ,..' Striking the em-  !';��� bankment he rebounded ;fn  on the  ' rails, between the trucks" of the first  can['.AWith rare presence of mind he  ���grabbed one   of the truss rods,- and  hauled himself-clear before the wheel  .caugiithim: ''-.'���.'  With one arm over the rod and one  leg" jammed between the brake beam  ���;.:'.ia?id':.-::jjie:':'-axle;-- he held on for 1,0C0  feet,; ivliile the ridge in the centre of  ."the;track was grinding and tearing  diis ��� clouhes and  flesh from  head to  'heel.    Parties on the rear of the caboose, noticing the trail of blood, pulled the bell-cord and stopped tlie train,  arid it was only then that acting engineer Cadden missed his mate.  - When..;the^  . :G6wari7*they.;-a^  - out, but he told theiii td jack up^the  ' car Jirst, which they did. Poor Frarik  was put aboard, the train, bleeding  profusely from   his badly   mangled  bod y, which was al most denud ed of  clothing    At   Roseberry   the   train  was cut in two, and   the engine and  caboose made a hasty  trip to Three  Forks, where Doctor Bruner attended  to the injuries of the brave 'fellow.  Several cuts had to be sewed up on  his head, left arm, side and leg, while  bruises  were   numberless.    Strange  to say no bones were broken. Though  badly injured the Doctor says he will  recover.   He has him under his care  at the Forks.  McGowan has been on the road for  several months and is a general favorite. This is the third narrow  escape he has had since coming to  the road. In the early fall, while  shunting in the yard at Nakusp, a  projecting plank grazed his head and  knocked his hat off. Some time later,  it will be remembered what a close  simeak he had through coming in  contact with the runway of the Nakusp stockyard, while making a flying switch.' On that occasion he was  pretty badly used up. It will be a  month or more before he can get  round again.  Bobbie Bm\:s, Ye Ken.  Tomorrow (Friday) night nil'good  Scots, the sons of Scots, and those who  think themselves Scots, will assemble  in the Windsor restaurant, to do honor  to the memory of Bobbie Burns, ye  ken.

'   The town has been full of visitors  during the week.  Living is as cheap here as any  place in the country.  Frank Locasto's building will Abe  finished in a few days.  There was a successful dance at  BowTen's Saturday evening.   ;    '  Gostin's water power ; lajrndry will  be ready for business nextcmonth.::  &apifim Hoiden, of Vancouver,' has  brought in a stock of drugs, and will  open a store here.  Mrs. W. A. Allen, nee Mrs. M. E.  Whyte, of Nakusp, was here during  the week. She was accompanied by  Mrs. Manning and daughter, formerly  of the Brunswick '.Hotel,' Vancouver.  Will Get Their Wages.  There has been a great deal of talk  of late relative to the .wages still owing employees by t^e Inland Construction Co., whose cheques', have  not: been honored by the Bank of  British Columbia at 'Victoria. The  sum 'owing has been SelL ati$70,O00.;  From- the press- the matter has'been-  brought into Parliament, Mr. Semlin,  leader of the Opposition^ espousing  the cause of the workingmen. He  contended that the Government  should see to it that the men were,  paid in full. Premier Davie, in reply,  stated that the Government had taken  the matter into consideration before  Mr. Semlin had thought of it; that  all necessary inquiries had been  made, and that the Government  would take steps to secure the payment of the men. To make a surety  doubly certain, Lawyer Kerr, of this  town, has been engaged by interested  parties to look alter their claims..  Rossland Booming-,  *  S. M. and G. Wharton, who are interested in  tlie Cliff mine, on  Trail  creek, and the Clifton and Reco,   in  the  Slocan, are  on   a visit  to   this  country again after an   absence of  nearly three months.     Spokane, in  their estimation, is the deadest town  in the  universe, while the general  condition of the country was not much  better.    On   their   way   up Messrs.  Wharton looked in on the Trail creek  camp, which is alive with activity.  At Rossland there is quite a boom on,  people flocking in from all quarters,  but principally from Spokane. Realty  has doubled in p:ice, and those Nelson parties who lately acquired a portion of the townsite' are likely to do  well   out of their spec.    Too many,  however, are going into that camp  who are broke,   ar d  it is foolish for  any man to leave  the ��3.50 camp of  the   Slocan   to go   to a. booming ��3.  camp, even though it be a gold proposition. .  Among the spectators at the dance The fates being propitious, Rev. A.  on Friday was Postoffice Inspec oi\J. Gaebel will expound to the sinners  Fletcher., who took keen enjoyment j in Nakusp next Sunday, morning  m watching the merry paily. j and evening. ' |  COHBIN WILL BUILD.  The Reil 3Iountain Railway is a Surety  Despite Opposition.  Lf, C. Corbin, the all-powerful controller of the Spokane Falls & Northern and the Nelson & Fort Sheppard  railway systems, was in Nelson last  week.' He had come up to'Nelson in  order to settle the question of right of  way from Five Mile Point into tlie  couhtyT town,;, and .this .he has satisfactorily arranged, the-vC. P. R.wi th-  di awing their opposition to the spur  by being- ;gran��edw Running powers  over same. 'V'"- ;  ' . ������'  v^iMr. Corbin had just returned from  .Victoria, w.hitherlie had g one to pus h  the Red Mountain Rail way bill, which  provides for an extension of time; and  the authorization of a narrow guage  road, through the Legislature. This  railway is to act as a feeder from the  Trail creek mines to tlie.S.F.&N.R,,  with which it will-be connected by  ferry at Northport. Great opposition  was made: to the bill, ostensibly on  behalf of the C. P.R., who are anxious  to get a footing into the, camp for  themselves.  Speaking about the proposed railway, Mr. Corbin said it would make  but little:. difference to him whether  theibilL' j&ss��$^^ the.  iCJ^r%er:was'concerned;v "He had the  :charter and he intended to keep it.  ���It called for the commencement of  construction by April 12, 1895, and  rather than sacrifice the precious document the work would be commenced on that date. He wished a year  or two's extension ot time so as to  let the camp more fully ; develop,, in  order to show what was there. But  if this privilege were denied him,  people could depend upon it that the  road Would be built. His road was  assured of a freight list of 100 tons a  day, and this could be increased easily -by the two mines now shipping���<  the LV Roi and War Eagle���not to  mention the other properties being  developed,  The wagon road up the Sheep creek  valley from Northport was built upon  a railway grade,, and with but little  attention can be made ready for the  ties and rails. Mr. Corbin believes  the Trail creek country is naturally  tributary to Spokane, and he* will  pull for that city. If the C. P. R. wants  trade in the camp they will have to  fight for it.  -ao���  Raised the Blockade.  F. J. Matthews, ore buyer for the  Omaha smelter, was in town on Monday. He spent last week in Nakusp,  trying to raise the ore blockade at  that point, and he succeeded. Over  7C0 tons were located there, but this  has all been conveyed to the head of  the lake by the Kootenai. Twenty  four-horse teams are hauling the ore  from there to the end of the railway  at the Wigwam, averaging 40 or 50  tons per day. The Nakusp &Sl0can  road is handling all the ore tendered  them at the Forks and the concentrator.  MINING NOTES,  Al.  Reid and wife,   of Silverton,  came up Sunday.  Happenings    of   Interest   Among'   the  Treasure Vaults.  The Alamo has 15 teams hauling  ore to the concentrator.  There is no truth in the report that '  tie Surprise had shut,down. '  The Idaho mine is shipping ore at  the rate of GO tons a day to the railway. -';./  The Surprise, Wellington, Payne,  Bluebird, and Cariboo are still shipping ore via Kaslo^  Work has been commenced again  on the Wellington, giving employment to several men.  ��� McCorkendale, tlie man reported  los!; in a slide on the Idaho trail, is  all right.    He is in Kaslo.  The last of the shipment of 75 tons  from the Antoine arrived at Kaslo  Saturday and was sent to Everett.  E. Shannon has purchased from C.  W. Aylwin an eighth interest in the  Iron Mountain claim, paying therefor  ��50..-', ;���/-. ;���.���,;'���.;.;:.:  W. R. Will has returned from a  trip to the southern part Of the district.  Trail' creek, he thinks, is the coming  camp. :���.���'.' :   --;.;.  C. E. Perry, as agent for the Slocan  Surprise Mining Co., is applying for  a certificate of improvements for the  Surprise.  Alex. Smith, well known in connection, with the Surprise, was in  town this week on business in connection with that property.  The Slocan Surprise Mining Co.,  with a capital stock of $225,000, has  been registered in this province. The  head office is in Chicago.  J. A. Finch returned from Uncle  Sam's domains on Thursday evening.  He is now inspecting the several properties working under his name.  Application will be made for a Dominion charter of incorporation for  the Red Mountain Railway Co., already incorporated by the Legislature bf British Columbia,  The Goodenough owners shipped  22& tons of ore to the Great Falls  smelter, and on Saturday received a  cheque of $5,-400 in payment thereof.  The result was better than they anticipated.  The annual meeting of the Le Roi  Smelting and Mining Co., held "in  Spokane last week, the old directory  was re-elected, as follows: George W.  Forster, George Turner, Col. W. W.  D. Turner, D. W. Henley, Col. W.M.  Ridpath, L. F. Williams', J. W.Bink-  ley, Col. I. N. Peyton and W. J.  Harris.  Kaslo's New Rulers.

The staff on the Cliff; at Trail  creek, owned by Wharton Bros., of  Spokane, has been reduced to two  men, who will continue ; developing  the property. ���'. The Cliff is a tunnel  proposition, something uncommon in  that camp. Work on the main tunnel  has gone in 71 feet, showing clean  ore on all sides. Depth is gained as  the tunnel is driven, almost foot for-  foot, making the claim much easier  to handle and less expensive. With  the erection of reduction works at  Rossland, or in the neighborhood, the  Cliff could ship ore at a paying figure,'  but at present transportation is too  expensive. The Cliff has the largest  showing of ore in the camp. The  vein parallels that of the War Eagle,  at the distance of about a quarter of a  mile.      ������������ j ':  0- r- O. ��-'  Dangran is Jealous.  TleWoMs  Notice to the Public.
