While our provint ial legislature is  racking ils bruins t," pi-ovide soine  means lo prevent wild t.-alting by law,  a feat almost impo*-.-ii)!i: unless lliey  can at tho same tini I'ass a iiioiimiw  to eliminate the huge percentage of  gullibility at pre.-ent existing in  hiiii'uin nature, it seems to Tins IIkk-  ALu'that they have right to their hand  a means of curtailing-wild catting lu  a considerable extent without passing  any other legislation "nt all mi tlie matter. They have the.,reports of tin;  provincial mineralogist, as far as he  has gone, nml the milling leporls nf  the gold ceimuiissieineis, thioughout  the province. These .documents give  an impartial and honest account of  the state uf mining iifT.iirs up to the  time of publication, which would be  simply invaluable to inten'ling investors, if they could.only get at. tlieni.  The importance, with which Mr.  C.irlyle's report on the Hit-can. Nelson  aud Ainsworth district.-, is regai-de.-el  by the mining public is sufficiently nl-  testeel by ihe fact that, copious extract, have appeared from it in almost,  every loading paper'in Canada and  stime have even published it in full. If,  instead of sending out a few copies to  the' government offices and newspaper.-*, the' government wonlel take  measures to disseminate these teporis  throt.ghout C.i;iada,'c the" States and  Great Britain, they would n'ol only be  doing a good work in'the way of atl-  vertising the province, buttilso in the  direction of protecting investors. -Tut'  the reports up for sale and advertise  where they are to lis found.

The London cc'i-.espondent of the  Nelson Miner says in their issue of last  Saturday: It has been known for  some, weeks past that several large  British Columbian outerprUes were on  tlio stocks anel would be launched at  the lirst opportunity that should be  deemed propitious. The time has not  yet come, but as the Cretan dilliculty  se-eins likely lo   blow  JGUPATION GF GRETfc.  over, anil the  South African ent.uiry has already  had the effect eif hardening juices in  the Kiiflii' market, there may yet be ii  chance of interesting the Jiublic in B.  C. jirupertics bclore midsummer.  That there will be it ii. C. boom in  London is jiractically 11-sttred. That  it will take place* this" year is unlikely,  nor is it. to be wished; but that it will  be of considerable importance when it  does come is" the unanimous opinion  of all those who have visited the country and know its resources.  The* Lillooet Fra/.er River and Cariboo Gold Fields Company have issued  to their shaivholdei s n circular giving  a detailed amount of the work done on  their several properties since tlu: annual l-i'ijnrt, was issued. The strike on  the Sunshine seems to be of considerable importance, although it is hardly  probable th-it the bulk of the ore* will  give such high returns its that obtained from the stimplc shipment of seventeen tons, a portion of this value  would give a handsome: ju-olit.  The B. C." Agent-General's office* is a  ban en ground for those who seek recent information concerning your  mines. I fancy that Mr. C.irlyle's re-  poi-t 011 the Sloc.-m district has be*en  published, but it has not yet leached  these* shores. If only some arrangi'-  inent could be made iiy which rol'able  mining news, even if two months old.  would be legulaiiy trarsinilted, it  woulil be a boon, as under the present  conditions stipi*lies are kept back  many months and their arrears come  en masse.  it 01.1   3  report..) A shaft bus (iccnjsuuk on the  lead to a depth oT -10 feet, and ore is  visible .-til the way down, some 25 tons  of ore; having already been taken out  us they went down. At a depl h.of 17  feel, on this shaft a, tunnel is driven on  ihe lead 11 distance of UO feet, and has  a good showing of ore and, carbonates  throughout. A lower tunnel has been  driven 205 feet, of whicli 175 feet is on  the lead. This, too, bus a good shewing of ore nearly the whole length of  the tunnel, tho lend varying in width  freiin 0 to IS inches.  Out of six assays taken from across  the paystreak, the following, results  were received : The lowest assay run  Ot oa. in silver, 70 por cent, lead,* value  rjOi'.K). The highest l*iO oz. in silver  and 70 per cent, lead, value S113. The  cost of mining will not 'exceed from  ifQ.oO to t$'ii per ton, aud the: shijiping  from the mine to the c.us, only a few  ntindt-ed feet, about 5 cents per ton.  Then the- shipping, treating 'and  suieltiDg will cost abont $22.50 per ton,  thus after'allowinjf'folTnll pot-entile e.".-*--  oenses'the'ore will give a profit of at  least Sp(i."> per ion, or .*$0."50 a carload. It  is possible now,' without any further  cievelonmont woik to ship at least  200 tons of ore, but further development work will be continued all the  time, so thai the Company will not  ship any ore for about three weeks  yet, then they intend toship a car a  week and increase*, the number as  ijuickly as jiossible. The convenient  location of tho mine, places it so that  boarding and other house will be unnecessary, as all the employees can  put .up in'imjr part of Sandon and be.  .haudy_to_t,heiiL_we)i-k.___ Son le 10 or 12  men are employed, and it is expected"  the Argo and Belt claims will be  among the. foremost of Slocan's  wonderful silver mines ere this time  another year. _  The Incorporation Fad.

THE  ROSSLAND  HERALD'S     TRAVELLING  CORRESPONDENT  WRITES ABOUT THE  MINES  The North American Review for  March' contains a timely and-  elaborate paper on "The Famine  in India" from the pen of Sir  Edwin Arnold. The thorough  aud long familiarity of Sir Edwin  with - East*'-' Indian affairs and  customs renders him a high  authority upon this important  Mibjeet, and its various aspects  are described in a most graphic  ��������� aud sympathetic style.'  The vast superiority of experience over theory is amply  shewn in the trade policy of the  United States.

On Do.uu* tiieKokani"'-:, Kootenay  Lake, Alarch 10.���������I wrote my last  letter from the steamboat Nakusp iind  and am now en route from Nelson to  Kaslo on the Kokanec, a smaller boat  than the Nakusp, but fitted up in the  same comfortable style, with state  looms and dining, reading and smoking rooms. In a smaller way these  boats are as elaborately finished as  some of the Atlantic liners, and travelling aboard them is as enjoyable as  can well be. The scenery is grand,  the meals gooel, the company lively,  the: attendants courteous, and for  those who like that sort of thing there  is a bar on board. For the benefit of  Albertans who have not taken the  Kootenay trip it may be interesting to  sketch the route. The round trip  taking in all tho chief points means  nearly one thousaiut miles of travel.  You leave the C. P. R. main line at  Revelstoke, 2019 miles from Calgary;  tiike the train for 23 miles of a branch  to Arrowhead; board the steamboat  to Robson. a trip of fifteen hours; here  you are transferred over a few miles  of railway to a smaller boat which  takes you to Trail. In high water the  boats can run right down to Trail, but  at present the water is so shallow and  the rajiids so bad that a short poitage  is necessary. From Trail the little old  Lethbridge-Duninore cars carry vou  up the mountain over the "turkey  track" by means of numerous zig-zag  switch backs to Rossland. Returning  you may reach Nelson by either the  American branch lines which have  been pushed up from the south, or the  boats and the branch road from Robson. At Nelson another boat is taken  to Kaslo, n three hours run; then the.  narrow guage road to Sandon, which  is connected by a C. P. R. branch with  the town of Nakusp, where the steamboat of the same name is ready to pick  you uj) for Arrowhead once more.  KOSSLAND.  The* 1 tush  into    West Kootenay is  already so great that it is appalling to  dwell on what it will  be in a couple of  months.   The best hotels in  Rossland  are constantly   crowded.     There are  SI licensed places there  besides boarding houses without number,   and J. G.  AlcCall'.im (formerly   of  Calgary).has  contracts for building five more hotels.  The visitor to Rossland comes away  with mixed feelings.   In the lirst place  there is no ejiu'Stion about the fact that  she has got-the   boomiest   kind   of a  boom on her hands.   The situation in  two sentences, is this:     The   working  mines of Rossland with their present  nay roll, would support a town^ of perhaps  ii  thousand    people.     She has  already seven thousand and will have  double that before the summer is over.  Alore than half the people   in   Rossland have no  legitimate  justificetion  for being there���������except  perhaps  that  they can't get out.    Hundreds of men  are. either looking for jobs or begging.  They have nowhere to sleep but on the.  lloors and chairs of saloons.    In every  line of business except hotels there are  tour men   where  there   ought  to be  only one.   Hotels will pay   for a year  or two   hut  many   of   them   will  he  worthless when the tide turns.   Bankrupt stocks of merchandiseare already  on the market.     Alore money is being  spent over bars and in   houses  of   ill-  (which contain   nearly   100    inmates)  than would build a town.     You can't  walk down the principal street at dusk  without being asked"for  a quarter to"  buy a meal.   There are more minim*  brokers in Rossland   than   would   fill  the largest jail in Canada.     How they  live is an unknown problem.  So much for the dark side of Rossland. There is another side. Tremendously ovpi done as it i.s there can  be no doubt that Rossland is and will  be a great mining camp. Whether it  .will become a great permanent commercial centre remains to be proved.  Out of hundreds of propositions at  present before the public there* will be  many good paying mines. How manv  or how few nohodv can fell- The dividend payers are the Le Ren and War  Eagle, the lirst having paid $325,000  and the second $187,000. A great  number ot others have been sulTlcieni-  ly openeil up to ensure their being  profitable propositions provided tlioy  are in the hands of wise, honest and  practical management. Too much importance cannot he placed on this for  there are good mines in Kootenay  \vhose**sliareholders are being robbed  through incompetent, foolish, extravagant and sometimes corrupt management.    But ot this more hereafter.  I visited the War Eagle, Le Roi and  some of the smaller mines. The Le  Roi is of course the. greatest mine in  the camp. In the size of its ledge and  the tjuantity ot ore shipped it exceeds  them all, though there are mines with  richer ore. Tt has an immense pay  roll and i.s splendidly managed. Its  promoters, with one exception, were  poor men, Spokane lawyers, for whom  the banks would not have discounted  a ten dollar note a few years ago; today they are millionaires. They deserve their good fortune, for they  struggled hardagainstdisconrngement  and reverses. The superintendent,  Capt. Hall, i.s a hard-working, hard-  headed practical miner, who has no  use for frills and reel tape. His experience began in IS 10. in the famous  Cairnsmore lead mines in Scotland.  Before going to Rossland he was for Ifi  years manager of tho Alice mine in  Montana.  low riitAiiK e>itE.  He discussed the recent remarkable test of eleven tons of  "low grade Im Roi ore; in the (i. IC.  concentrator. He said the result was  highly satisfactory and if sustained by  subseejuerit experiments woulel certainly cause; a revolution in the mines  of Rossland. What to do with her  thousands of tons of low grade pre has  loni>- nuzzleel Rosslajiil'si miners. Ore  containing less than $15 to $20 of gold  per ton would not payyto ship, for the  freight and smelting charges of Mr.  Heinze's smelter at Trail are $11 per  , ton and to ship to American smelters  meaus an expense of $14 and upwards  per ton. At the suggestion of Air.  Rush, a Tacoma smelting man, last  week a small shipment of ore from the  Le Roi's dump was selected and put  through a concentrating mill near by.  The result as given by Cajitain Hall  was as follows:  Gross value of ore milled 10.1.  tons at $10 per ton.... 1(18 00.  Gold    and    silver    saved    on  plates $ 07 85  Gross value of concentrates....     -13 82  Totalyalueof inineralssaved. $111 07  Percentage of extraction 05.  Ratio of concentration, (I to 1.  Tho average for tho 10J tons of crude  ore used in the test was $10 per ton.  An average of the dumj) from which  this ore was taken is about $10 per  ton, but while the men were shovelling the: ore into wagons Cajitain Hall  hael all large masses of waste picked  out and thrown to one side, with tho  consetjuencp that tho ore shipped to  the O. K. showed better values than  expected. From these 10". tons of ore  there were saved on the plates a trifle  over five ounces of gold, and in  addition 3,001 pounds of concentrates,  net dry weight. The concentrates  averaged LOS ounces gold. 2.03 ounces  silver, and 2A per cent in copper. The  tailings assayed $5 in all values. The  gold saved on the plates was made  into a brick, wliich was found on  being tested to have a, fineness of .010  anel a value of $07.81, including silver.  Alining men seem to be agreed that  the result ot this test ensures a  tremendous future for Rossland  mines, The Aliner, an excellent but  extremely sanguine paper, is making  all it can out of this "wonderful  discovery."   This is what it says:  "What this means to a camp like  Rossland, which has hundreds of  thousands of tons of low grade  silicious ores in sight, is perhaps not  at first apjiarent, though every  experienced mining man knows that  it amounts to a complete revolution.  Had some fairy dropped into camp  ���������ind with one touch of her wand  transformed all our low grade ore into  a $20 smelting product, the dullest  understanding would realize that an  enormous, an incalculable sum bad  been added to the wealth of Canada,  and yet this good fairy's work would,  in all probability, have added less to  the camp's prosperty 'and given less  assurance to its future than has this  simple discovery that the Le Roi's  silicious ore' is a" free milling and  concentrating instead of a smelting  m-oposition. The discovery means  that within a year Rossland will  e;onlain numerous mills which will be  turning out each month hundreds of  thousands of dollars in yellow bullion,  and in addition thousands of tons of  high grade concentrates for treatment  in nearby smelters."-  It would take a book to contain all  that should be written about Rossland  and Trail, but as this letter is already  too long I will leave further impressions for the next.

The- Drop Was Pulled at 8.08 O'CIoclc  And His Neck Was Dislocated-  Pronounced Dead in Eleven Minutes  ���������The Crime for Which   he Hung  Macleod, March 10.���������The execution  ot Charcoal, the Indian murderer,  took place lit the North West Mounted  Police barracks here this "morning  promptly at 8 o'clock before a limited  number eif witnesses,    ,  The scaffold was erected In a corral  about 300 yards from the guard room  where Charcoal hael been confined  since ho was sentenced.' Only Sheriff  Campbell, Father L'Egal. the executioner, police officers, physicians, press  representatives and two or three  others were present.  Crow Eagle, the head chief of the  Piegan Indians, and one Blood Indian  were also present.  The'scaffold was completely enclosed  with a drop of six feet. Charcoal was  unable to walk and was driven from  the guard room to the place of execution and was carried up the stairs and  placed in a sitting position on' a chair  on tlje tran. Promptly at eight minutes past 8 o'clock the lever was pulled  by-John Smith, the* hangman, and  Charcoal dropped swiftly to eternity.  His neck was instantly dislocated and  death was practically instantaneous,  but he was left hanging for 11-- minutes, when he was pronounced deael  by the physicians present. The body  was then taken down and placed, in a  coffin, when a coroner's inejuest was  held with the usual verdict.  The arrangements were perfect and  notahitch occurred in the proceedings,  while the executioners work was done  quickly'and well. ���������-,  Charcoal (faced the trying ordeal  with'great courage shewing no.sign of  funking or fear, except one or' two  gasps just before the trap' was  sprung.

Father  was with him last- night until- eleven  o'clock, when at Charcoal's Request he  left him until six this morning, remaining with him till the last. Charcoal was restless last night. He did  not sleep but smoked and sang hymns.  He ate a good breakfast just at seven  o'clock, 'lhebody has, been token to  the Blood reserve for burial hv Father  LEgal. There is no apparent excite-  citement among the Indians and;'very  few are in from the reserve. A cordon  of Police was drawn around the Barracks and no one ��������� permitted to ��������� come  within fifty yards of the.fence without  a pass. *   ���������' '    ���������*  SYNOPSIS OF CHARCOAL'S CRIME.  The story of the events which led up  to the crime for which;today Charcoal  suffered death is uncommon even in  Indian life.-,. He .was. 'for an Indian,  comparatively well off, and-'was' the  owner of two wives and a number of  horses. Having, as it was said, discovered one of his wives in .in act of  infidelity he promptly' shot-' her  seducer, and on the discovery of the  corpse took to the hills. While the  excitement in connection with this  murder was still at its height the  country around Macleod was startled  by the news of another attempt at  murder, when a bullet,- narrowly missed Mr. McNeill, the farm,-instructor  on the Blood reserve, while seated at  night in his own house. This attemjit  was'lightly or. otherwise attributed to  Charcoal,  the.n an outlaw,  and  behalf of his client?. As * reported  in The Herald a few days  ago, the evidence of confession  in the Indian murder case wliich was  practically the whole case against him  on that occasion and which was  objected to at the time by Air. Harvey,  was held by the court en banc to have  been inadmissible, and the conviction  on this charge was ordered to bo  quashed. But iu the Wilde case, there  was no room for the exercise of  legal talent- . Several eye witnesses  saw the shooting and the jury found a  verdict of guilty.  Thu jnisoncr was duly sentenced to  death, the date of his execution being  lixed for today in order to pcnnl the  presiding judge to report the proceedings to tho Governor General in accordance with the law in ��������� the North  West Territories. It was stated that  efforts were being to obtain a commutation of the death sentence, but  the^Governor-Geiieral feeling that the  law should bo permitted to take its  course, notified the Lieut.-Governor to  that effect and the evemt this morning  closed the episode���������one of the most  memorable in the history of the North  West,   where,' fortunately, murder is  NEW EASTER COSTUMES  so rare -that; a "hanging  never, takes place.  seldom ot  IMPERIAL BANK  __    OF CA.MADA  Head Office, Toronto  Amusing, if not   Instructive.

"Bulldog for sale, will eat anything;  very fond of children."  "Wanted, an organist and a boy to  blow the same."  "Wanted, a boy to be partly outside  and partly, behind the counter." "  eveiy  effort was made by the.AIacleod police  trrce, under Superintendent Steele, to  effect his capture. Owing to the difficult; nature of the country, with every  foot of which Charcoal was familial-,  and the fact that he was undoubtedly  being, assisted by friends among the  tribe, his capture was'no easy matter.  A report which located him in a certain neighbourhood at a certain time  was immediately followed by another  which proved him to have changpd his  position with extraordinary rapidity  to some other point far distant. At  times the police, were.almost upon  bun, but he succeeded more than once in  eluding arrest when there seemed to  be very little chance of escape. Emboldened by sue.'cess, he began to take  desperate chances, and evidently felt  Oat as arrest meant death he would  sell his life only at the highest price.  On one memorable occasion he was  located in the; Pincher creek, district,  anel his capture seemed .so easy  that Sergeant Wilde, who was in  charge of the search party, instead of  -.hooting the Indian down as he might  have done, endeavoured to effect his  capture without loss of life. Putting  spurs tohishors2, he left his companions and rode after Charcoal, who  was also mounted. Almost at the  moment when he had reached out to  hold his prisoner the Indian turnel  half round arid shot him dead. Wilde  fell from his horse, and Charcoal,  abandoning his own, mounted the big  police horse, and possessing himself of  Wilde's rifle, fled for his life. The  death of Wilde, who was a popular  favourite in the south among the  settlers and even among the; Indians,  as well as throughout tlie jxilice force,  caused intense excitement, nnd the  efforts to effect the capture of his  murderer went redoubled. The aid  of the family n'l Charcoal was invoked,  anel one day when he entered the  tent of a relative in search of food,  feeling comparatively secure, his arrest was cffecte;d by the; Indians, who  communicated at once with the police,  and he was conveyed to th������ gunrcl  room in the.AIacleod barracks. He  was committed to take his trial on  three charges, viz., the murder 01  the Indian, Medicine Pipe Stem, the  attempt on the life of Air. McNeill,nnd  tho murder ot the ill-fated Sergeant  Wilde. His trial came on at Alacleod  on Jannary2U_.li, before Mr. Justice  Scott and a jury, when he was found  guilty of the Indian murder and the*  murder of Wilde, the other charge hot  being proceeded with. Charcoal was  represented at his trials by Air. H.

March 111.���������It is  asserted in ofllci'il circles here that  the opposition of Great Britain and  more particularly of France, was  what pi evented the adoption of the  proposal to occupy Crete with 10,0ff0  European troops. Greece it is understood is relying upon the effect of  public opinion in England and France,  and a sort of threat is sent out here  thai by persistence in this policy  France is endangering her understanding with Russia, and both England anel France may find theinselvesin  unenviable isolation, opposed to the  new grouping of Russia, Austria'and  Germany.  AGAINST  COERCION*  London*, March 12.���������A great meeting was held in St. James hall this  evening to protest against the proposal  of the powers to apply coercion to  to'Greece. Resolutions denouncing  this policy were adopted with enthusiasm and strong speeches by Herbert  Gladstone, John Dillon, Labouchere  and'others. Right Hon. W. E. Glad-  Stone telegraphed from Cannes to the  meetings: "Good health to your  efforts."  London, March 15.���������Between 30,000  and' -10,000 people crowded the . ap-  ptouches to Trafalgar square this  afternoon to express their sympathy  with Greece and Crete according to  posters which were issued announcing  a meeting to "assist the diplomats to  make up their minds."  Gleaning opinions upon Lord Salisbury's Greece-Cretan policy from, all  possible quarters, it is discovered that  the balance of opinion in the lobbies of  the House ot Commons, in the leading  London and provincial clubs, and in  all diplomatic circles that are accessible, is decisively in his favour.  PREPARATIONS GOING ON.  Athens, March 15.���������Everything remains in statu e_uo pending the action  of the powers. _ The Assistant Minister  of War is hastening in every possible  way military preparations precisely as  if war were already declared. Great  uneasiness has been been caused by  the strained situation on the frontier.  Grave advices are being lece.ived from  Larissa. A despatch states that 18,000  troops have been concentrated near  "Elassona. The.Turks have formed  two irregular battalions to guard the  Thessalian pusses through which insurgent bands could enter Macedonia.  HEARD .11031 AGAIN.

The  release is said to have been ordered on  medical grounds.  Athens, March 10.���������There is no  longer any doubt but that secret negotiations are proceeding between, King  George of Greec5r_aud th<"_,Russian  Government. The information comes  from a high and absolutely trustworthy authority. Russia is undoubtedly  playing a two-faced game with the  Turkish government iind with tbe  powers. There is an exp'icit understanding -that when' the Greek army  crosses the frontier. Rirssia shall find  some pretext to seize Constantinople.  The understanding iis far as -King  George is concerned is that in the  general conflict in the Balkans, which  is sure to follow any fighting on the  frontier, and in the disti ibution of the  Turkish Empire-which would follow  the seizure^of Constantinople, by the  "~ltussiansrGree"ce"would"b"trencouraged"  to seize Macedonia with the Czar's  promise in advance that she would be  permitted to retain that province.

Markets'  Will be Closed to.Canadian Farmers  Washington, March 13.���������The hopes  ���������of" the Canadian administration for  ���������closer reciprocal relations with the  United States will be defeated by the  Uingley bill. The liberal party,  under "Laurier's leadership, had tried  to mate closer commercial affiliations  with the United States. One of its  foremost policies and one of the first  nets of administration was to send Sir  Hichard Cartwright and Hon. C. H.  Davies to Washington as commissioners! to pave the way for reciprocity.  This; mission proved fruitless because  they desired to open the markets of  this country to the farm products of  Canada. In .their interview with  Chairman Dingley and other members  of the committee they were told in  ���������dinlouiatic terms, but emphatically,  that the design of the new tariff bill  would be to preserve the markets of  the United States to its own farmers  by adequate protective duties on all  farm products.

The di������euse is rarely fatal, but  the popularity nf Canadinu horses has  been alfecteel, feu- one affected animal  shipped is liable to affect the entire  cargo. Buyers here suggest that tho  strictest scrutiny should be exercised  prior to shipment.  Another complaint is that horses  arc shipped too young and in consequence are unable to perform the work  required of them. Horses under five  years should not be shipped.  The Good Enough mine declared a  -dividend of $21.00(1 on Saturday last.  It adjoins the Reco in Slocan, and is  not incorporated.

The medal has been  forwarded to Mr, T. A. Stephen for  presentation.  THE ARABS TRUST  New Denver Ledge.���������We are often  amused at the manner in which some  promoters of mining stock companies  do business. With no capital except  their gall they will stock almost anything "for a million and advertise for  suckers in the east. The result very  often puts us in mitid of the following  way in which some city Arabs formed  a trust: '  Danny, Patsy and Jimmy were going  down street one day, when Patsy  found a nickel. Then the -question  rose, what to do with the wealth.  Said Danny, "Lot's git up a tigar  trust. I'll be de president, Jimmy kin  be de seeretirv and Patsy kin be de  stockholder anel put in de nickel fur  de capital." The trust was formed  and the company's capital was invested in a cigar. -The president cut  the cigar in two, he and the secretary  each took a section, lit up, and proceeded to enjoy themselves. "Hold on  fellers," said Patsy, '"where does I  come in on dis?" "Oh," said the president, loftily, ?"yous is de shareholder,  Patsy.   Yous kin spit."        - -   ������������������      , '  ASSAULT EACH OTHER  SERIOUS   RAILWAY   CALAMITY  NARROWLY AVERTED  A Freight and Passenger Engine at the  'Peg Came to Grief���������The Deck  Hands and   Passengers Shaken Up  Winnipeg, March 13.���������A serious  railway calamity was narrowly averted  within*the city limits last evening.

The two engines are complete wrecks.  One of the engineers, a conductor, a  baggageman and a passenger were  slightly injured.

Throughout Manitoba this season  more snow is said to have fallen than  in anv previous winter of tho Province's history. A epiick thaw may  result in a very serious flood.  The Herald has received information from a. r reliable source that  the Canadian Pacific Railway not only  intends building a road through the  Crow's Nest Pass but also one through  the Kootenay Eass, which is about 50  miles farther to the south andis besides a much easier pass through wliich  -to build.  ,-'La Presse is informed bv a high  church dignitary that the Pope has  not given orders to the Bishop to stop  the szhool agitation, that no delegate  has been appointed for Canada, and  that Archbishop Begin has gone to  Rome to be appointed Archbishop of  Montreal with right of succession to  Cardinal Taschereau.

The petition was  referred to the general purpose committee.  Mr. McConnell, of tho Geological  Survey Department, in his report of  the mining district in British (Joluii)r  hia. which he has just visited, propounds a theoiy reg.irtling its history.  He declares that Rossland is the site  of an ancient volcano which was  originally at the bottom of the sea.  He does not state the fact which affords some confirmation for his theory,  that a good deal of the "crathur" is  still to be found in the neighbourhood.  Carson City, March 13.���������The' great  sensation of today in this city was the  declaration made by Ex-Trainer  Muldooii, the famous wrestler,  regarding Robert Fitzsimmons.  Muldoon'is an acknowledged authority  on all matters pertaining to training  and physical culture, and his opinion  carries great weight with it. He  visited < Cook's ranche this morning  and had a long talk with Fitzsimmons.  He looked him over carefully in order  to  obtain  as   close an   estimate as  Possible as to his physical condition,  'he opinion he expressed after leaving  Fitzsimmons' training quarters was  not as favourable as it ought to have  been. Muldoon said to a party of  friends: "I took a walk with him and  had a long conversation. We  discussed the approaching fight and  Fitzsimmons to me, did not seem to be  at all over confident regarding  the result."  SrORTS LEAVE   FOR CARSON.

"Bob"  Fitzsimmons trained to increase his  weight and-hold his strength, 'while  Corbett- trained down, but is still a  very-heavy man'.' The, two pugilists  were never in better condition - in  their lives before. Fitzsimmons has  all the appearance of a big beef eating  Englishman, his face, is ruddy with  health, his. eye bright and step elastic,  Corbett is like a mettlesome race  horse, nervous in action, high strung  and with the temper ot a fiend. It is  the same temper that he exhibited the  day before he fought with Charley  Mitchell 'in New Orleans. ' Nothing  pleases him. He is savage as - a  famished lion. He knocks down and  knocks out his_.trainers and turns and  curses the spectators for laughing.  He wants fight worse than any man  that ever was seen. Corbett on the  scales a few days ago was 183 pounds,  and is therefore heavier ' than ever  before when in fighting trim., He is  also stronger and a better puncher,  but possibly a* few shades slower than  when he fought with ' John L."  Sullivan. Fitzsimmons is heavier  than ever before und can hit faster  and harder than ever. He also has  the advantage ot several ring lights to  bis credit since Corbett's tight wifh  Mitchell. His weight is exactly 172J  pounds, and he will go into the ring as  neaily at this weight' as ���������possible,  Even at this weight he gives Corbett  sporting men generally regard this as  a big handicap. Everything is now  settled regarding the details of the  big battle. Dan Stuart has practically  decided to hold all three fights on  Wednesday if the weather permits,  hot if it is a cloudy day on Wednesday  he will probably put on the Smith-  Green fight and postpone the Corliett-  Fitzsimmons contest until the following day. If the next day is cloudy the  Flaherty-Hawkins mill will take place  and the big light will be held over  until Friday..but this contingency is  not likely to happen.
