S,, is  now   engaged   in   surveying the  Calgary.���At 8.0G Tuesday  morning Earnest Cashel, murderer of Rufus Belt, paid the extreme penalty "of the law by  hanging. A small group of  about a dozen persons, including  representatives' of the press,  Drs. Roleau and Stewart, were  the only witnesses of tho execution. ,  Cashel came to the scaffold,  attended by, Mr. Kerby, a Methodist pastor, who feels that the  young man had sincerely repented ol his crime. Cashel wore a  tweed suit and at the last a'white  cap was placed on his ' head.  While the Lord's prayer was being recited tho drop fell and the  soul of Cashel passed' into  eternity.  Radcliffo the hangman, made  all the'arrangements, and everything passed off satisfactory  from his standpoint. Before  leaving liis cell Cashel broke  down and confessed to Mr. Ker-  'by the murder of Belt, but afterwards walked firmly to. the  scaffold and asked the pastor to  pray for him. This is the first  hanging that hits taken place in  Calgary, and the case ��� will long  remain lixed in the minds of'the  citizens. ffi  At the scaffold Cashel, turned  to Mr. Kerby aiid said in a low  voice,'''.'I am guilty''.  Mr. Kerby moved with him to  the scaffold and repeated.those  exquisite lines: ���      ' ���.    '  ���Other refuge have I none,  Hangs my helpless, soul on  Thee.'"  The hangman then adjusted  the knot and pulled a white cap  over the prisoner's face. Mr.  Kerby , then commenced the  Lord's prayer, beginning, "Our  Father, which art in heaven."  As he breathed the words, "Deliver us from evil," the drop fell  and Earnest Cashel's soul took  its long flight.  He met' his end not in a'  spirit of bravado, as some expected, nor yet as a coward, but  in a simple, earnest manner sincerely repenting of whatever  evil he may have done.  vein, and the probability is that  this property will be developed  this summer and add lo the gold  output of the district.  A striking and ��� surprising  thing in the production of the  silver-lead mines of the Kootenays, is the fact, that zinc, once  a nuisance, is now a valuable  product of the mines.  To use a miner's expression,  the mining interests" of Southeast Kootenay, are "looking up",  and that very encouragingly.    - '  The management of the St.  Eugene mine has perfected a  new concentrating process that  is likely to greatly increase the  per cent of. savings in slimes  from concentrating ores.

Gamey was the principal speaker in the legislature, today, and  discussed the famous charges.  His references lo premier Ross  were personal, aud the speaker  repeatedly called him to order.  He said either the government  or himself should be turned out.  of the house. Before sitting  down he promised to move an  amendment, to give him the opportunity, of discussing tho case  under the rules of the house.  Transportation.  ��� The proper facilities of transportation often, il may be said,  in nearly every instance, make  successful mining possible, and  without which many losses' are  incurred which under favorable  circumstances would be turned  to profit. Tl enters into,, tho  question of successfully "operating more mines than any one  cause, for if enters largely into  them all.

The following conversation is  reported lo have been overheard  noi long ayo in the examination  of an applicant for a train on the  Kooten.i y Central 'Railway.  ���'Where do yim.hail from?" '  ."From the general manager in  the East."  "What did yon come here to  do?" *   ,      '  "To learn to subdue my energies and improve 1 he service.''  "Are yon a railroad man?"  "1 am so taken by all the  officials wlin know their business."  "How may L know yon fo be a  railroad man?"  "My looking over   my   letters  ��� and examining me in the signals.  .Try me." '        ,  " How will yon be fried?"  " By tlie punch.'*  "Why by the punch?"t  "Because it is  an   emblem   of  honesty and lhe  principal work-  ing'tool of my profession."  ���'Where did yon first  prepare  .to be a railroad man?"  "Upon a farm adjoining the  right of way of the Crow line."'  "How were you prepared?"  ��� "By'breaking on a'-thresh'ing  machine for six' months, after  which - L went to Steele and  ' sought admission <to 'the trainmaster's office."  "How gained you admission?'  "By three cigars placed in the  ( open  hand, of the frainmasfer's'  clerk."    ���  ���    '' "How were you received?"  "Upon Iho sharp gaze of  the  trainmaster applied   1o my physiognomy,'' which ,was thus ox-  plained���as it is always'a,source  ���   of pleasure to the trainmaster to  receive callers. I should drop in  and chat with 'him   upon every  , possible occasions  "How \vei;e you then disposed  of V -''','     '     '-  "I was seated in a-chair near  the trainmaster's desk and asked  if I put my trusl ,in safety couplers.'" ��  ��� "Your an'sweV?"  "Not if T know myself, I dont."  "What   was   then', done with  you?"  "I was led up and down the  yard three times to accustom me  to tlie noise of the trains, thence  to the chief dispatcher."  '"How were you then disposed  of?"  "I was seated- upon a brake  wheel before a train box, and  caused to.lake the following horrible andbiuding oath."  '��� T. John Smitli, do hereby and  herein most everlastingly and  diabolically swear by the great  horn spoon, that. I will always re-  ' mil. and never conceal any of the  oasho'collooted by me as conductor of a K? C. R train,' and I will  not cut, make, use, collect or remit any cash fares less than  those found in lhe regular tariff  book.  "I further promise and swear  that I. will nof. carry on my train  free, any railroad man's wife,  mother, sister daughter, or  widow, or permit any other  conductor to do so if 1 can prevent it.  "I further promise and swear  that I will freely contribute to  all subscriptions circulated to  buy my superior officers a token  of esteem as far as he may desire aud my salary will permit,  to all of which 1 solemnly swear,  binding myself under no, less  penalty than that of having'< my  salary cut from year to year, all.  my perquisites taken away and  expended for sand ballast to put  under the Windermere extension  where the trains come . and go  twice every twenty-four hours  so help .me Bob Ingersoll, and  keep my backbone stiff."  "What did you theirbehold?"  "Tlie trainmaster'.^ clerk  approached mo and  presented  me  with  a Safety  Coupling   Knife  and instructed me to take it  to the yardmasler, who would  show me how to use it."  "How are the coupling knives  used?"  "By sticking them in your left  hip pocket with the blade turned  up."  Mr. Watt here informed the  applicant that lie was satisfied  he was a railroad man, and asked  him if he would be off or from.  "1 will be off from here if you  will give me a passenger train  on the Koolenay Central."  "Have you any cigars?"  "I have."  "Will you give them to me?"  "That is not the manner in  which 1 got them and 1 cannot  so dispose of them."  "How can I get them?"  "f   will   match  you   heads or  tails for them."  , "f will go you; begin."  "Yoo begin."
