The ore is galena and iron, being  similar to that found in the gsu'r-.  face showings of the Sullivafn.  ' The ,Emma fraction, lies between--the Hope ' and Galore  claims and- directlv east of the  Sullivan.'.^-The existence,;of.-a  large body of galena on the Hope  claim has been known  for  over  two'ycars. also on the Galore, as  well as'"several other properties  on the hill.    The Emma fraction  ferrcd to said:    , "There1" is no  doubt but ,that .there is a vast  amount of   mineral   underlying  the surface  showings   upon  the  Sullivan mountain. (   The  present development  upon the  big  group consists of about 260  feet  of shafts, besides numerous open  cuts.  -There is a total of a/shafts  the deepest being down SO,, and  two other 50 and 40; the1 balance  ranging from about 30 to 10 feet.

I if the .No  Vittie, assisted by Mr. Campbell  of  Elko., the  particulars are as  follows:       The    Dago's   had   a  quarrel with a couple of tinhorn  gentlemen  of  leisure   at   Cranbrook. in which  the  Dago's  apparently got tho worst of  it, the  Italian's   vowed   vengeance  and  lay in wait for the men Chat they  had  trouble, with,  when  young  Ryan    came   along   about   this  time, and it is believed that they  took him for one of the men that  they were looking for, and shot  him through the heart: altogether there lias been four arrested as  being implicated' in thci murder.

There is no doubt but that a  large body of galena underlies  the surface showings on this  mountain, and now that capital  has taken hold of a number of  properties this summer will  prove that (he mines on what is  known as Sullivan Mounlain arc  all right, and will become a large  and constant producers of silver-  lead ore.  ��� t_-  ^~ ..���*.. 1.1.*     uut; aiu.  2 shaft, which is 80 foot in depth,  a better grade of ore has1 "been  encountered, also considerable  rich carbonates, tt is the intention of the owners to push'devel-  opment work on this group so as  to be able to ship as soon as the  railway furnishes, the .necessary, means of  transportation.

'Manila,    March 29,   1  p.m.���  After   a   couple   of   hours  rest  General     McArthur's     division  pushed on across the rice fields  and    rivers    and    through    the  jungles without meeting any opposition, the enemy flying from  the villages of   Ucah,   Taol  and  Bigas, after burning*them, even  the town of Bulaca,n,   capital of  the province, was destroyed  by  burning,     and    abandoned,    although General McArthur passed miles to the right at 5 o'clock.  The enemy made a stand  in  the  trenches half a mile beyond Cug-  guiato station, at a river crossing.    Kansas and  Pennsylvania  regiments immediately deployed  crossing   the   railroad     bridge  under a heavy fire, and  attacked  the enemy \s, position. The rebels  withstood the musketry fire for  half an hour, but a heavy  artillery fire disconcerted them,  and  at tho end of forty-five  minutes  fighting'  the   insurgents  bolted  towards the hills.    Our loss was  two killed and twenty wounded.  The enemy's  loss   was   severe'.  Qeneral , McArthur   wont   into  camp near the battle field at 0.30  p." m.  Four miles from Maloles, 7.80  p.m. At daylight this morning  General McArthur's division advanced, from Marilas along the  railway to Bigas, five miles distant, in the following order: The  Nebraska regimehtand the South  Dakota regiment on the 'right.  The Kansas regiment, the-Third  Artillery and Montana regiment  ,on 'the left, with General .Whea-  tou's brigadein reserve:'    <  The American forces met with  strong opposition in the jungles.  .First one Nebraskian. then one  f.V-iinsylvanian, .thou.two/of ^the  Montana regiment,   were- killed,  land   '64  wounded,   including   an  |officer of the  Kansas regiment.  Then  the   troops   pushed' on   to  Bigas with considerable opposition, the rebels burning the  villages ' as they   retreated , in bad  order   towards   Maloles.       The  enemy also tore  up sections  of  the railroad in many places  and  attempted to burn'the bridge  at  Bigas.   but  the   tire  was  extinguished.   Owing to the timely arrival of the Americans the rebels  had not finished   their  trenches  along the line of today's   march.  This shows that they were pressed by the'rapid advance  of  the  Americans.     It is believed however    that   there   will   be   hard  lighting before Maloles is reach  ed.    The Minnesota regiment reinforced    the     division     today:  marching from   the  waterworks  during the night to Manila, then  going forward   to   Hits  front   by  train.  some galena with  a  slight per-1 veil and one of the crew.     It  is  estimated that with passengers  and crew she had on board about  fifty people.  At 4 o'clock this afteraoon the  Lee     backed    into, mid-stream  from  Tyler  to  proceed  on  her  journey.    The steamer had just  reached the middle of the river  when she suddenly stopped  and'  lurched  as  if  she had struck a'  snag, the next moment .the  boat  parted in the middle, and a  volume of steam and  debris arose:  and the detonation of an  explosion thundered over  the  water..  She broke in two  and   sank  im-'  mediately.     Most1 of  the   crew,  lived in Memphis.  '   NEW   ELECTIONS.

From Our  Own Currcspondcui.  Ottawa, March 28.���The  Gov-  ��erninent has officially announced  afca decision with reference to the  ,     plebiscite   vote,   the  conclusion  .arrived at being,   to ^quote the  Premier's words:���"That in our  Judgement the expression of pub-  Bic opinion recorded'at the polls  in in,vor of prohibition,' did  not  irepreseut  such  a proportion of  ihe doctorate as would justify  Ahe introduction by the Govern-  ' ., sient of a prohibitory measure."  -Of course this is naturally dis-  ,    appointing to ardent prohibitionists Vho had hoped against hope  1  .that the Government' would introduce  a   prohibition   measure  istpon the strength of a very1 slim  " ';,  .majority which they secured at  ��� '    ihe polls. ��� As had been frequent-  , jSy pointed out;���and it was the  /act   upon   which   Sir    Wilfred  JLaurier laid his greatest stress,  ,    ��� tlte vote favorable -to  prohibition being only 28 per cent of the  H   ���!     ���    iwailable vote cannot reasonably  &e held to be sufficient^to give  effective backings to the enforcement   oL���such  a law if it was  , . placed on the statute books. This  ,Js essentially  a  practical  question and, all1 practical  men "are  1    ' willing to admit that a moral law,  ' snaking' that an offence "which is  ,not  iu  itself criminal   must be  strongly endorsed by the general  ,'   sentiment of the community if it  is not to' be worse' '.than a, dead  Setter.    ', ,  '  .      ^ IT   IS  ADMITTEDLY ABSUHD  To compare such'a vote as that  �� ijiven-last September with a vote  yja-st iu an ordinary political congest, and a majority,   no matter  how small, shouId carry' the same  -    '   -weight as a similar majority se:  c   oiured- by a  candidate,   for: say  parliamentary honors.  The -Montreal Witness, whoso  position upon this question will  tie accepted.as'sound by the good  citizens .who have "been brought  lx> think ' themselves within  measurable distance of prohibition, only to have that hope  in  '������  ' 'definitely' postponed,    is 'to let  .their representatives know  how  ' they feel about; it  in sufficiently  ,strong terms  to  strengthen  the  '    -    frauds of those aiuoug them who  .'' , 's*re anxious, like themselves, to  " carry this reform, but who are  nt present complaining of the in-  ssnfliciency of moral backings".  The practical trouble with prohibitionists has always been that  they are strong in the hustings  font weak-in the ballot box, ,and  the practical politicans appreciating the very obvious fact* that  a five dog with a vote is better  ���than a dead lion with i\ohe, will  not commit suicide by unduly  committing himself to the assistance of those who will not .sufficiently help themselves, and avIio  tvill blame him?  flANADA'^    OU.IKIVI.'     l.KSSON      TO  ^' Kl'KOI'K.  The London. (Eng.) Advertiser has this to say editorially with  reference to Lord Aberdeen's remarks upon the race quest ion in  Canada:-- "The problem there  has long been the problem of  making French and English live  jogethcr. Tt has been however,  fis Lord Aberdeen said. Ihe  ��-h'jjjinishiiig problem, which in  effect means that it has been  isoLvod. A hundred years ago .it  *nay have seemed a hopeless  (matter, but now after a century's  ^ letsercise of tact and good feeling  <>nt>oth sides, the difficulties _of  f.he situation have been so far  smoothed away that in the ordinary intercourse of life they are  almost entirely put out of mind  jind are indeed only apprehended in rolioction. There is a-  f'Httral which Lord Aberdeen suggest* that we might apply at  jiouie. .We all recognize the enormous advantage we -should  '~:'^i}\u if we should Confidently  ���rely upon the continued maintenance of cordially friendly re  i at ions between France and our-  - s-��l.ves.    Whv cannot the French'  and English people of the old  world agree as Ihe French and  English of Canada, doV Lord  Aberdeen suggests that what is  really wanted is more constant  social intercourse between the  countries. Unfortunately it is a  thing which is difficult and it  thing which nations which have  grown up apart with different  languages, traditions and customs will iot exert themselves  to promote. The good* relations  of tho French and English in  Canada are no doubt due to the  closeness'of social intercourse  which has existed side' by side,  with differences of language and  custom; but, that social intercourse's�� far from being difficult  has almost been enforced ' by  circumstances! We can easily  see from Canada how much we  might gain by being on terms of  closer intimacy with France and  we can also see that such a condition of things is not by any  means' impossible. To be persuaded that the thing is, both  possible "and desirable is to get  well on the road towards attaining it and,the rest perhaps may  be safely left to time."     '^  KAIJ-iWAY COMPETITION ' IX   TUB  WEST  - Improved railway transportation facilities and the chucking  of the railway mouoply are kindred matters of vast importance  to our great West. The big mischief in connection with the' sec-r  ,ond of these was .unfortunately  done so -effectually by the late  Government that it will be many  years before the country will  shake off the.shacblos.which Sir  John Macdonald and his ministers allowed the C.'P. R. to bind  around them in spite of the emphatic protest and prophetic  warnings of the then Liberal Opposition. ���' It is true that the  present Federal Government and  the Local Government in Manitoba has doue much'to counteract and inbdify this mouoply. and  many attempts made hi the last  .three years to strengthen the  bonds have signally failed Sev-t  eral local campaigns have been  prosecuted in, tho Prairie Pro-  vince against various projects to  extend the ramifications,, of  thc'C. P. R., by handing'over  to them charters and construction" rights for proposed new,  roads, one of the more recent  beiug in connection with the  Rainy'River and Manitoba and  Southeastern Railways.  A   SATISFACTORY  ASSURANCE.  \ Uncontrolled by the big road  these would form a genuine system of competition for the trade  from Winnipeg to Lake Superior  and the importance of keeping  that competitive feature inviolate  is apparent to all. It' is therefore satisfactory to learn from  Mr. William Mackenzie of Toronto, one of the chief promoters,,  that these roads intend to retain  their independence. Mr. Mackenzie s>aid:~-- "'The- Ontario &  Rainy River Railway Company  is perfectly independent of any  other company, and there is no  intention to sacrifice its independence. No particular arrangements have boon made to connect  with any hyslem at tho western  terminus. The scheme is simply  to build a line to develop a district that may be termed tho new  Ontario. Wo are now trying'to  get our legislation into shape.  We are locating the line and  doing a little construction and  expect that the first, hundred  miles will be completed by the  middle of next .summer. About  twenty miles are already graded,  The work of construction will be  exceedingly expensive as there  is a good deal of water to get  over and heavy bridging and  rock- work will have to bo done  in crossing Rainy Lake.  TDK    JUU'TAUTY   OF    THK    MOH.  The storm of indignant proleul  which has been aroused in tho  press throughout the country by  the story of the disgraceful  scenes enacted by the mob outside- the gallows yard of Ste.  Scholastique. is a healthy sign,  indicative that   the great  heart  of the people is all riant* The  moral conditions which makes  such a demonstration of mob  brutality possible is the same  condition exactly which leads to  the lynchings in the South, at  which we are prone to raise, our  hands in holy horror. The corrective for the disease must come  with authority apparently, and  if the sheriffs .who are responsible for the decent ordering of  these things, are uucapable or  unwilling to act effectively, it is  plainly the tluty of the Government to instruct them definitely  as to their duty and then see  that they do it. Canada cannot  afford to have such incidents repeated in her midst.  '    ���'  Canadian Capital In East Kobtenay.  Eastern Canada is becoming  more fully aroused to the importance of East.Kootcnay, and  the representatives of capitalists  from Toronto, Montreal and  Quebec, will soon be in the field  looking for/safe investment in  mining for, their principals.  _  There need be no mistake  made in'investmoht, if the same  rules -which apply in ordinary  business ventures are followed  in buying a mineral'claim.  The time for speculation has  passed, and'the camps a re. settling down to work-on a business  basis. Our'mines, will sell on  their merits the same as an  article' of merchandise.  It is1 gratifying too, ��� that the  people of Canada are taking an  interest in the mines of this district. '-Though slow to awaken  .to" the fact that in this district  there lies the richest mineral  country on earth, , good - properties have been secured, and more  are being sought," and they will  work them for profit. They now  fully appreciate the value of East  Kootenay as, a mining district,  arid are determined to bo, in on  the'"'round floor.   '  - '"   ,    *  Manitoba's Capacity.  The report of the United Trade  Empire League refers to Manitoba as follows: Manitoba has  an area of 47,000.000 acres. Deducting lO.nnO for lakes, rivers,  townsites and waste land. 37,000,-  000 acres'are left for farm culti-  vati'on or' homes for 11 (i, 000. fa m -  ilie's on 320'acres each, and as up  ,to now there arc only 27,000 farmers ' there 'altogether, that  leaves room in one province for  89,008 more wheat growers. Supposing, then, we'get them there  and each one'of them out. of. his  :J20 acres grows on an average  100 acres at 20 bushels to the  acre. If you'figure it up you'  will find it is quietn possible for  Manitoba alone to supply us  with all the wheat we require  from abroad. ft is only a question of money, and,comparatively  speaking, not money either. The  cost of one first class battle ship  (about .1750,000) would put n,000  families onto farms in tho northwest allowing ,��1d0 to each to  find them in implements, seeds,  horses, etc., would keep them  until their first crop was harvested. Five thousand farmers a verging I0<> acres of wheat each at  20 bushels to the acre, means an  extra 10,000,00(1 bushels, for if  that scheme is not liked Britain  would put a duty on foreign  wheat. \n addition to the wheat  lands of Manitoba there are millions of acres iu Assiniboia, Alberta and Saskatchewan.--Win-  nijicf/ Tribune  Crow's Nest Coal.  Vancouver.���The Crow's Nest  Coal Co.' has secured the contract to supply the British tleet  at Esquimalt with coal for the  present year. The amount of  consumption is not less than  3,00(1 tons per month, and some  of the vessels when leaving Ihe  station carry away with them  more than that for one trip.,'  B.P.COOK.

T  HOUGH there is not. much  startling    news    in   the  ��� weekly budget of news from the  ;-outside world received this week  there is  one delightful feature  that seems at present to  be  animating    the , people, of   Port  ' Steele,   and that is  a spirit of  ���',  t>uoyancyr and .hopefulness"  for  the future. And there, is another  feature   'that    is   pleasant   for  -Steelites   to   contemplate,'   and  that is that the eyes of the whole  Dominion seems to be turned to-1  -wards this district.   The railway  -condition and the delightful certainty that it is to be constructed at an early day contributes a  Sarge share of credit to the exuberant   feeling   that animates  the people'of the future metropolis of the Kootenaies.   There  \is a  rosy  tinted  future for'tli.e  district, ����," cementing, influence,  ; sometlihig that makes :he' heart  throb with a , consciousness   of  1 importance,  when we consider  and tliink of the immense miner-  ��� al area  that is to be developed  |rt*uul opened up by  the  railways  that will soon be under construction, airceutering at Fort  Steele.

Copper Mining- Shares.   ,   4l  Activity  and  interest in . eop-  gter mining shares show no indi-  |-cation of diminishing, says Brad-  .-street's.     Tho plans for tho consolidation of a number of Ameri-  -can   copper   mining   companies  have thus far  been  confined  to  the realm of rumor, though it is  .stated thnt next week  may  witness the launching of a prospectus which will provide for a company with an authorized  capital  of the startling amouut of ��1,000,-  000,000 for the purpose  of combining   leading   copper   mining  ���companies.      What the practical  results of such a scheme will be  remains a matter of doubt.     On  the  other hand  the  dealing in  copper  shares continues  to   be  the principal feature of the Boston stock' market, and an indication of a desire  on   the   part  of  1 the New York stock exchange to  derive a share of the benefit from  the popularity of such securities  is afforded by  the recent  listing  of the Anaconda copper  mining  securities by the latter  institution      It is also stated that even  if the plans for a so-called  copper mining "trust"' are  not  carried out  some  of  the  proposed  consolidations   how   under  way  in connection with copper  properties will-result in the creation  )f corporations of a  sufficiently ,  I large capita] to render thorn de-'  sirable features for the New'  York market. j  t        Ahovo the Clouds.  .   Airships have not yet been in-r  vented, yet it is possible  to sail  for a day and a night in a fairly  comfortable     steamboat     at   a  height of over "two , miles above  the sea.    The water, upon - which  you accomplish this remarkable'  feat is Lake Titicaca, which, lie's  between Peru'and'Bolivia.    It is  a huge lake, 120 miles  long and  nearly sixty wide and. is   over  1,000 feet deep.    It  is away  up  in    the    mountains   above    the  clouds.     Nine rivers flow into it  besides a vast amount.of snow  water yet it- has no, visible outlet.    The 600-ton steamers which  sail on Lake Titicaca were built  in  Scotland,   carried  'over   the  passes in  sections and, put together on  the spot.     The fuel  is Australian coal 'brought from  7,000 miles'away."    In cthe" lake  are many' beautiful, islands and  the. cliffs which  line  the  shore  are  magnificieutly. rugged.     In  no place can a ship anchor.  The  water, even sixty feet'fr'om shore  is hundreds of feet deep.

IS A GRAND VICTORY.  i  | American   Regulars and  Volunteers  Sweep All Before Them.- .  Manila, March 25.-Noon.-The  I movement    of . the   American  iroops  today swept  the insur-  ents    back   toward.   Malabon.  General    Harrison, Gray   Otis'  brigade is in front of La Loloma  where there  is a   stretch of a  mile   of   rough,, open   country.  [The insurgent trenches in the  edge of the woods are four feet  ,!eep and furnish   a good head  oover.      The   American   troops  Advanced  on double-quiclr, yelling    fiercely    and   occasionally  | .dropping in the grass and  firing  -a volley.  The natives stood until the  Americans were within 200 yards  of their position, and then broke  and ran for the woods. About  30 of them were killed in the  outskirts and 70 of them on the  roads.  MONTANA  AND KANSAS  IN  IT.  The Montana and Kansas  jforoops met the hottest resistance  in a strip from which the rebels  Jiave greatly worried the Americans recently during the night  time.  Ninety minutes after the start  ���at 6 o'clock the whole front for a  /distance of three miles to the  ���north had been cleared.  General   Hale's   brigade   had  -simultaneously swept in a northwesterly. direction, ��� routing  the  enemy and burning the town of  ;8an Francisco del Monte and a  number of scattered huts.     The  jine was then opposite Novalche,  the artillery advancing along a  good road, from La;, Loloma to  Novalche, the -wagons carrying  pontoons, telegraph supplies and  .ammunition following.     The infantry moved in splendid order.  ' -'FTIIE, MARKED "AD-VANCE.  "��� Smoke from the burning hjats  marked the line of the American  advance. Ambulances and horse  litters, led by Chinese brought  in the wounded, among whom  were a few Filipinos. The  Americans who were wounded,  endured their > injuries bravely,  one group which had been  brought into the hospital singing "Comrades.'  The Pennsylvania troops took  nine prisoners, among them a  great naked captain of the Mac-  cabee tribe and one Japanese.  All the prisoners were greatly  terrified, expecting to be executed immediately. 0  AGU1NALDO  IS  CORNERED.  o  Manila, March 25.-  General  consisting  2:25 p. m.-  McArthur's division,  of ��� the brigades of  General Harrison Gray Otis,  General Hale and General Hall,  supplemented by General Whea-  ton's brigade, advanced by daylight and cut the enemy's forces  in (wo.   .  They captured the towns of  Polo and Novalche on tho left  and San Francisco del Monte  and Mariquiua on the right,  clearing the rebel trenches in  front of tho line north from the  river to Caloocan. They also  secured possession of the railroad, practically cornering the  liower of Aguiualdo's army at  Malabon and in the foothills at  Singaloon. 20 miles apart.  The troops engaged were the  Third artillery, First Washington, Montana, Nebraska, Wyoming, Colorado, South Dakota,  Minnesota and Oregon volunteers, ; the Third,"Fourth and  Seventh and Twenty-second regulars, the Utah-,artillery battalion and the Twenty-third regi-  merit.    The American casualties  gin the movement which is expected to mark the destruction  of Aguinaldo's army. Although  stragglers and fugitives may infest the island of Luzon' for some  time, it is believed before Otis  has delivered h.s next blow the  insurgent army, as an organization, 'will have ceased to exist.  The new movement, it isL understood, will be by land and  water, although it is not .expect-  ed the navy's part in the program will be particularly prominent. Otis has procured 13 of  the gunboats formerly owned by  the Spanish government, and  these are to play an important  part in the development of the  campaign. Many of the troops  which had. been engaged on the  outer lines up to the date of  General Lawton's arrival at  Manila have been withdrawn to  the water front and complete reorganization is in progress.  The reinforcements now arriving at Manila are being used to  maintain the strength of lines  running from Manila to Pasig,  established by Wheaton's flying  surgents canUonger avoid a decisive conflict, which must "end  either'in iheir breaking through  the American lines or in their  surrender. It is evident that  Otis expects the latter, for he  has already advised the war department that the, insurrection  can not last much longer.  Up To Date  Another Rate war.  Montreal.���The Canadian Pacific has decided to meet the latest cut made by the Great Northern in second class west bound  passengers fares to $12.50 from  St. Paul to Pacific, coast points.

Washington, March 24.���It is  .understood; here .that General  Otis has so far matured his plans  of campaign that within a week'  or 10 days he will be able to  be-  brigado.  The next movement that is expected here is to be by water. It  is believed that Otis will place a  complete brigade on  board  vessels,   steam    slowly   northward  and land them beyond the insurgent headquarters at Malolos. If  this   movement  succeeds as   it  should if made with rapidity the  insurgent army  will  find  itself  completely penned  in, with  no  opportunity for retreat.    To the  north (will be the fiying brigade;  to  the   east,   Laguna   de   Bay,  across which they will .be prevented  from   escaping   by   ��he  American   gunboats now afloat  there;   the Pasig river   to . the  south,   is, well policed by ironclads,, and with a strong line  in  the position occupied by Wheaton's brigade,   will cut off any  movement    in    that   direction,  while to  the  west   the   bay of  Manila    is   closed   by   Dewey's  vessels.

Coroner Moffat was notified at  once, and Constable Morris took  charge of the corpse, which was  removed to the police quarters.  Steps were taken at once to secure some definite clue tis to who  fired the fatal shot, but little  progress was made, a though by  the morning if .seemed quite  probable that one of the .three  rtalians who had created the  trouble near Jennie" Howard's  place was the man wanted, and  that the man shot was taken, for  either Mathoson or !'Kid" Mansfield' returning to attack- the  Italians.  On Tuesday a jury wa.s onpan-  eled by Coroner Moffatt. consisting of the following persons: ,J.  W. H. Smytho. A. Watson, G.H.  Miner. (J. R. Leask and J. Mc-  Mullen.' Mr. Smythe was selected as foreman, and a ' brief session was held in the morning to  receive the testimony of Constable Morris as to fhe identification of the corp.se. An ad  journment was then taken to  ;! o'clock to give Dr. .1. II. King-  time to make a po.sf mortem examination.  At the afternoon session the  doctor's report was presented.  If showed that tho ball entered  between the fourlh and fifth rib  on the right side, and passed  down through the heart and  stomach and. to the b��.clr, lodging  under the iuembra.no near the  I lth rib., The lungs were filled  with blood by internal hemorrhage. Net jf.io Mc Dowel 1, a.  piano player at her place,"Kid"'  gave their testimony which accorded with the facts set forth,  and the inquest was-adjourned  until Wednesday night to await  the return of some of the crew  who were in the^ railroad yards  at the time the crime was committed.   ,  C. M. Edwards, mining recorder, officiating as government  agent, arrived from Fort Steele  about noon, accompanied by  Constable Barnes, and they began at onco to, assist a iu the, investigation. Their work during  the day seemed to clinch the  theory that, tha crime  had   been  committed by some  one  of   the  < , ���'      ,    i.  party of Italians that   had, been  raising  the  disturbance  in'' the  early part of the evening.   After  much diligent work', contending  with the difficulty of making the  Italians talk, it was  discovered  that two of them who   had   been  around the town that  night  had  suddenly disappeared.    'Mr.   Edwards left for the   west  yesterday morning to investigate along  the line, and ,Constable/ Barnes,  who  had   received   information  that lead him to believe that the  parties had gone east left  on  a  freight train about noon  yesterday   in , that/direction.-    Every  effort is being made   to  apprehend the guilty parties;  but  the  task is a complicated one..  ii  Two Italians, one who is supposed to have been with the parties that visited ihe houses of ill-  fame.and young Mansfield, have  been taken'into custody and will  be held pending developments.���  T HOMAS   M c VIT T IE  '      Fort Steele B.C.

In a driving snow storm yesterday afternoon at H o'clock, the  remains of Edward Ryan, who  went to his death unsuspectingly, with a jest on his lips, were  carried to the little- grave yard  on the east side of the town and  laid to. rest. Rev. Ball officiated  and only a few were present at  fhe final ceremony.  Prom information received it  is thought'that the. deceased has  a father living" in Montreal in  the saloon business. Ryan formerly came from England and  lived for a while in New York,  then went to Montreal and Mindly drifted out west. He was  good natured, never quarrelsome  and evidently met his death by  accidentally walking down I he-  railroad track just at. the time  that one or more parties were  looking for another man with  murderous intent.
