THE BLUFF CALLED  The great Liberal bluff in this piovince litis bevn culled, .-mil lhe hireling  pi ess of the party is frothing at the  mouth. The disnppointuieiit of the  Liberal bosses and wirepuller-! is quite  intelligible. They thought thoy had  the surest kind of thing, and everything seemed to he coining their way.  British Columbia was'the last province  outside of the Liberal fold. The  Turner administration seemed lo lie  weak and discredited, the opposition  in the legislature appeared even still  feebler. AVhat could be more easy  than to dub tho Turner government  Conservative, to rally till the malcontents round ilie.Liberiil flag, to push  tho St'inlin opposition to the wall, and  SV. ei*p the province with another grand  Grit, victory. That Mr.Turner had not  been elected as a Conservative, or that  Mr. Senilin's followers comprised  members of bolli parties in Dominion  politics, cut no figure with these  ardent votaries of Mr. Laurier, whose  blood had been fired by seeing the  Bleu of Quebec melt, into Rouge, and  who longed to paint the whole map of  the Dominion with their favorite  color.  Accordingly hist May the word was  given to hegin and Bostook's Brass  Band began to. play the new-tune.  The Province led off anil the minor  members of the organization, one by  iine, joined iti." The chief motif of the  performance was lh������t-if the province  was run on party lines then tne people would know.where to place the  responsibility, that Mr. Turner was a  Conservative because'he-littd said so  with considerable emphasis, and lastly  that the next election was bound to  bs run on party lines because it was in  tho nature of things, Lhat it should be  so. The arguments'were not particularly convincing, and ihe response  made. ..by lhe electorate r.ot very  hearty'. So thnt tune was" dropped,  but the desire to add this, province to  the great Laurier triumphal agglomeration -i-ciiiaii'cd.'-'ind - it was" suddenly  die-covered that the ' organization of  tbe Liberal party required completion."  Th'o-wireprillers again set to work 'on  the now tat'k, a convention met, a  central association was formed and  the Liberal treed on provincial affairs  promulgated. All this was of course  carried out without tiny idea of the in-  trodticlion of party politics into the  next (lection. .Oh dear no 1 Pecksniff  is quite shocked and distressed at the  very idea." At the same time of course  all good Liberals are expected to subscribe to the platform. If not let  them be! anathema-iiiaranatha. The  World, the most influential Liberal  organ in the province will have noth-  -'nK-to do with it...Jftst. listen_to -Ihe  house will not weigh much iu tho balance against the advantage to he  gained hy the party of bringing this  province into lino. If anyone doubts  the advantage to the Liberal party of  having the machinery of a province at  their disposal or the unscrupulous use,  which they will make of it, he has  only to turn to the recent political  histoiy of Ontario and Manitoba to be  convinced. It was thoroughly exemplified only the other d-iy in thu bye  clectioii.in Centre Toronto.  The Herald is a Conservative paper  .and in doing our duty to the party and  province iu warning them to be on  their guard, as it has done ever since  the Liberal Convention was first  ��������� noooted, it will not hedetered by the  senseless abuse, school boy tirades  and absurd charges of the Bostock  tinkling cymbal up the street. It  raged and fumed uhen the Herald  opposed lhe open introduction of  party politics into provincial affairs.  Now that this paper has exposed the  more secret and insidious tactics adopt-  by ils bosses, when above board  metods failed, it is fairly foaming at  the mouth. It quotes our warnings  against ils own former opinions, if  opinions they can properly bo called,  when it, was abusing Mr. Turner for a  Conservative and demanding a division  into party lines at the next provincial  election. Tt fails to see that tho  warnings have been fulfilled in every  particular, and that it is its own  friends, who are to thank, tor having  fulfilled them. The'dictatorial line of  autitin. in which they have persisted  -since last May has driven Conservatives to the conclusion that ou theni  as a party will fall the.brunt of saving  this province at the next election froin  becoming a mere annex and sideshow  to the Grit combination at Ottawa.  This is not simply a provincial issue.  It is ti Dominion and national ques;  tion. And ou it the IIerald has  made up its mind to taken.determined  stand, from which all the mud-slinging of the Mail for the next six months  wili not cause it to budge au inch.  The C. P. R. The Permanent Main Line.-  . Mr. Jas. Ross, one. '<���������!' lhe principal  contractors ou the construction'of the  C. P. R. road, who was recently., over  the line in'company with President  Van Horn.*, was interviewed on his  return hy,the.Moiitrcal_.:Gazette. The  representative of "the "Gazette"said :  "Then^the peruiaupiitand.heavy work  .which* the company have performed in  the. mountain sections .of the.road  would indicate that notwithstanding  llio easy gradients of.the'Crow's" Nest  Pass the present will always be the  main line ?"- To this Mr. Ross replied:  " I do not think there can be any  doubt about it, for, even if the Crow's  Nest were bn.lt right- through to the  Coast it. would be considerably longer  than the present load already built."

F. McCarty, Proprietor.  J. Cowles, Manager. 4dtf  Golden Era on the World, remember  ing that'tho Golden Era is an   elegant  performer on the penny whistle in the  Bostock orchestra :  "The Worlel li as been making a great noise  and abusing the Government because Mr.  Templeton has been made Senator instead of  Mr. JIcLaggan. We desire to-.say that the  action of the Government meets with the full  approval of the Government 3um.orters in this  part ol the country whore the World Is regarded as a time server as shown by its scandalous  support of the Turner Government in order to  get the crumbs that fall from their table. Wc  notice that the World now* takes Its pontics  from the Diuisninir organ at Victoria, and  ridicules the recent Liberal Convention. So  much for its loyalty to the Liberal party."   ~  The -World will not chime in with  the convention. It1 even dares _to ridi-  cle it. Therefore it is n tinieservor, a  scandalous supporter of the Turner  government and disloyal to the Liberal  party. They do not want party politics  in the Liberal Association. Oh no!  At the same lime every Liberal is expected to vote for the platform, and as  many bewildered Conservatives as  they can catch. Then when the time  comes, if the Turner government falls,  the Liberal organization and the Liberal platform will have triumphed and  the band will forthwith begin to celebrate the great Liberal victory.  The Hkrai.d does not believe in  beating the air in politics. The issue  before the electors is pefectly plain, in  spite of all the dust that the pocket  organs of the Liberal party may succeed in throwing up to conceal the  operations of their bosses, between now  and next summer. The Herald is  not alone iu its opinion or biassed by  its adherence to the Conservative  party. The Rossland Record is a  paper quite independent of any party  predilections and this is-what it has  to say on this subject:  " There is but little doubt that the Liberals  vvill put a full list of candidates in the field at  the coming provincial elections. Liberal clubs  and young men's Liberal clubs arc being formed all over the provlncej and the Conserva-  tli.es would have to be politely blind not to see  that they must meet the issue at the next  election.*'  No doubt they will have a full list of  candidates in the field, and uo doubt  at the right time, pretty late in the  day, ti leader will be found for them.  The opening of a sent in the Dominion  REVELSTOKE AND FIELD  The Two New C.P.R. Divisional Points.  The authorities of the C. P. R. have  all but finally fixed upon Field as the  new divisional point, instead of Donald, which will be abandoned. It was  hoped at one time that Golden would  have bc'i'i. selected from its iinpoit.nice  being at the head of navigation of the  Upper Columbia river nnd the chief  town in East Kootenay. Theie wero,  however, ditliculties in the way. The  company do not own any laud or w.itei  rights in or near Golden, tind all these  would require to be acquiied for the  works for the new divisional point.  The chief drawback was the liability  to the station, sheds and shops being  flooded by a sudden 'upiising of the  Kicking Ilorse river. This is inn*, being experienced. The low Hue of rails  and switch oast of the water tank .tie  now flooded.' This makes shunting  difficult and dangerous, .is tats aie  apt to become derailed. The pies-enl  workshops at Donald will be lemoved  to Revelstoke, where new workshops  and stables are nnw'being built, in a  substantial manner, of biick. The  company has plenty of land there,  wliich it can utilize for its ^intieased  buildings. The chunve from Donald  to Revelstoke is now going on and will  be finally accomplished iu the couise  of next year.  At Field there tire already extensive  sheds and stables for the big mountain  locomotives, and not much enl.nge-  ment will -be required. The engines;  will he changed at- Field and Revelstoke. distant from each other 130  miles', and ' this -run- covers both the  passes and summits in the Rockies and  Selkirks." Field is near,the summit of  the Kicking tlorse pass in the Rotkies  aud Glacier House is near the summit  of Rogers'pass in the Selkiiks.

The various railway lines are  already issuing special advertising  matter and making other preparations  to handle the increased business, and  the C. P. R. are not behind either.  There are good indications also I hat a  large emigration will take place into  the Kootenays, as on every hand we  find increased commercial prosperity  arid contentment. Kootenay's fame  particularly in tho Big Bend, has only  begun.  The Bishop ^of New Westminster  spent l.-u.t Saturday. Sunday and Monday in town. He celebrated the Holy  Eucharist at 8 a. in. on Sunday and  preached at the second celebration at  11 o'clock. In lhe evening he administered I lie rite of confirmation to  eight candidates in the presence of a  large congregation. Alter evensong  had been sung, lhe Litany of the Holy  Ghost was sung by the kneeling congregation and then after a shoitad-  dress on the meaning of the apostolic  rite, which he was about to administer, his lordship put the solemn question to each of the candidates by name  and then, after an interval- of silent  prayer, placed his hand ou tho head  of each one. repeating the beautiful  prayer provided by the church. After  thecereinony the bishop preached on  the threefold gifts of the Spirit.powcr,  love and wisdom. The singing was  very well led"by the choir and heartily taken up by the congregation.  On Monday ' evening, Dr. Dart,  bishop of New Westminster, gave a  lecture on Patriotism and the Poets in  Peterson's hall. The audience was a  small one owing to the had weather  and ������the fact that other attractions  were on that evening. The lecture itself however was a thorough treat and  the bishop delivered the poetical selections, with which he illustrated his  remarks, in tho most admirable manner, holding his audience completely  spellbound. The selections comprised  the whole range of British poetry and  were delivered without book or note of  auy kind. In conclusion his lordship  gave some reflections on the great Jubilee ceremonial, of which he was a  spectator last simimer and wound up  by reciting Kipling's Recessional with  great effect, liis lordship intends to  return to England lo plead for this  diocese this winter. On his return he  will dedicate St. Peter's church, and it  is hoped will be persuadedto repeat  his lecture. He left on Monday's de-  laved No. 1 for Chtlliwat-k.

The news of the siidden death on  Monday last of Jlr. Charles R. Carlyon  of this place at Victoria, where he was'  on a" visit to his father Mr. W. R.  Carlyon of Douglas St., came as quite  a shock to his friends jmd acquaintances here. The deceased gentleman  had been in ill health for some time  past and left town for Victoria latt.  Thursday. Yesterday the Colonist  contained the news of his death. Mr.  Carlyon was a native of Union Groves  Wis., and was only 23 years of age.  Ten years ago he became a resident of  Victoria and after. graduating in the  Collegiate Institute, studied law in the  office of Mr. H. G. Hall. He was called to the liar a year ago last August  and since then has been ^practicing his  prolesiion in Revelstoke, wheire he  built up quite a nice practice, in spiti*  of the ill health, which hds terminate I  i in bis premature demise.

THE GREAT FLOP -  The Sun, the paper .whoso leiid-  ing writer is Prof. Goldwin Smith,  a . pronounced Liberal, rakes  Premier Laurier and the  Liberal party fore aud afb in its  last issue for "obtaining office on  false pretences and keeping it by  playing fast and loose with their  pledges." The famous platform  adopted by the Liberal party iu  '93, and on which the election in  '96 was contested .declared thatpro-  tection was a fraud aud had been  corruptly used to keep the Conservatives in power. Later, came  Sir Wilfrid Laurier's repeated assertion that he would bring about  free trade "as they have it in Eng-  land." The people trusted theie  assertions, says the Sun writer,  who'is presumably Goldwin Smith,  and voted the Conservatives out  ot office:  "The revision of the taritf at the last  session, however, aroused general dissatisfaction. The principle of protec-.  tion was maintained, and' duties were  freely imposed without regard to the  requirements of the public service.  The duties upon such staples as paints,  cotton, sugar, saws, coal oil, agricultural implements, hoes, axes, and shovels  continue to be, as they were before,  nearly prohibitive, and largely nonproductive of revenue. When object-  tion was made, the people were told  that tariff reform cannot be accomplished in one day or one session, and  lhat free trade, as they - have it in  Ureat Britain, can only with due respect to the extroardinary commercial  conditions of the country be reached  by a gradual progression. Whilstjthis  '��������� generalprinciple-was-reluctantly��������� ad-1  mitted. it was felt that the new Government was unduly pressing it to  excuse their tariff inactivity, and it  was suspected that an understanding  with the protected interests had been  reached. To confirm this suspicion  came with the Centre Toronto election,  the assurance of the Globe that there  will be no further tariff changes, and  Jlr. Betram's declaration that the  tariff should be taken out of politics  and the present customs, t~ rill stand  unchanged for ten years tit least. The  renunciation of principle is, therefore  complete.*'  To the protectionist assurances  of the Liberal leaders is probably  to be ascribed in a large measure  the election of '.'Mr.���������Bertram, for  the protected manufacturers  showed a pronounced indisposition to support''an opposition candidate.      Mr., Rowland's   friends  the swamps, fever- was very prevalent. Further difficulties were  presented by tbe high grass, which  compelled the men to crawl along  one behind the other. Conquering  all difficulties, however, the  British force reached old Mwanga  and thrashed him and his army  into submission. The difficulties of  the inland Yukon route are mere  child's play compared to travelling  in the" wilds of the African  interior.

The manufacturers  however were satisfiedLthat they  could secure from Free Trade  Laurier all the protection; they  wanted, and Bertram's election  was a natural consequence. IE a  Tory Premier and a Tory Government had done what Sir Wilfrid  and his advisers had - done.'.th-y  would have been guilty, as Mr.  Frank Oliver would say, of dishonestly deluding the people. But  the sinners being Liberals, pure  souled patriots who have been  accustomed from their infancy to  be righteously horrifipd at political  knavery, regard Sir Wilfrid's preelection pledges and his postelection flop as a clever and  statesmanlike trick.  The New York   Times on the Calgary  Overland Route.  New York Times; The intense  interest of the people of Canada  in the Klondike and Yukon countries  is illustrated by the Canadian country  newspapers. The last issue of The  Calgaby Herald, printed at Calgary, Alberta, North West Territory,  liassixtr-cn pages and three-fourths of  the reading and advertising columns  are occupied with Klondike. The edition is a special one intended to boom  the all Canadian route to the Yukon,  and contains an elaborate. illustrative  map and a carefully prepared detailed  description of practically every mile  of the way. The character and direction of every stream and road, the  nature of the country, and provision  lot human food are all told. Each  trail and postage is discussed, its advantages and disadvantages are pointed out, and careful instructions regard-  ingpacking-and-nnpacking-s-and-deal-  ing with the Indians are given. The I  distance from Calgary Lo the Yukon is  2,01S miles by the Mackenzie River I  route and 15C2 by the Peace-Liard  route. o  There are '.io columns oE advertisements, offering supplies of every imaginable kind for Klondike travellers.  There aie columns of editorial and  miscellaneous matter and communica  tions urging the claims of the Yukon  country on the attention of the people  of the world, and the claims of Ctil-  garvjiis a starting andioutfitting point.  That seems to be the hope of the town  and the enterprising It era i.n is evi  dently bending its energies in"that  direction, with the active aid of the  local Board of Trade The experience  of Denver in developing a great business by being headquarters for miners  is referred to ..frequently. There"are  evidences also of dreams of a railroad from Calgary to   Klondike,   and  Engineer llamel  ' in  coming back  Intending Klondikers who may  be inclined to magnify, the hardships of the trip by tbe inland  route should read the harrowing  descriptions of the recent British  expedition sent to punish Mwanga,  the King of Uganda. A force consisting of half -a dozen British  officers, 220 Soudanese troops and  14,000 native levies marched over  a succession of deep and extensive  papyrus swamps, some of which  took three hours to cross. The  thick, black mud emitted a  horrible stench, and, as the force  were almost always waist deep in  several industrious citizens have built  the line already on paper in Tin-: Hkkald, and show how it. is an easy and  comparatively inexpensive undertaking, Other citizens indignantly defend the climate of Alberta .against  hostile criticisms from without and  prove that the thermometer thiire  rarely falls lower than 10 degrees below zero.   '  Calgary.according to a list of attractions printed, at-the head ot the first  column of The llEn.vr.D's" first page,  has five churches, eleven clergymen,  seven hotels, twe liquor stores, three  newspapers, nineteen lawyers ("too  many," a parenthetical note in Thk  Herald observes;) one undertaker,  five doctors, ("~"o more needed," The  Herald says') three barbers' shops,  thiee butchers and many other attractions. -���������; ..���������_'���������'   ���������  '   '-     ���������: "���������"*"**'  James Fisher, M.P.P., who accompanied the . recent Hudson's Bay exploring expedition reports lhat Hudson's straits were clear of ice from  July 10th to October 30th, at which  time the Diana lelt on her return trip.

Lloyd  was brakeman on Barclay's train on  the night of the accident. When the  pitch-in occurred he was setting the  fitst hraKO. . He did not hear any  torpedoes. He was the first to see the  flagman. The windows of the cab on  Shengfield's "side was crusted with  snow and ice. It was impcssib'.e to  see thiough it. He did not know of  any remedy for such a state of things.  After * leaving Clare-holm engineer  Shungfield took short naps, but he w.is  awake from tlio ' ime they reached the  curve, north of Willow Creek, up to  the time of ihe accident. It was not  unusual, he thought, for engineers  to take a nap now and again while the  train was running.  The sitting on Tuesday was occupied  by the examination of P. Hamel,   the '-""Kg  engineer   ot   Terry's   train.    He  said'      *������  that on the night of the accident they  had gone on the Willow Creek bridge  at the rate of-eight or  ten   miles an  hour.   The night was so stormy that  until they reached   the  down   grade  north of the bridge'they did not know  where they were.   They   knew  then  they were near the bridge.

Shengfield's |  engine, which wns a mogul,   was one  of the most   powerful   they  bad.     A  mogul was   one-third   more  powerful  than the standard engine.-* Asked how  it was that while Shengfield on a powerful mogul with 11 cars had been  unable to pull up on the tip grade, a light  engine   with   21    cars  had    found  it  possible to climb the grade lie  replied  that he thought it might be accounted  for by the dilTerence in speed at whicli  the two engines were running and in  the weight of"1hr_ir respective- trains,  ft took thern about 20 minutes-to run  into .Macleod with the first half nf tin*  train; the return to Willow Creek took  ���������15 minutes.  Senator Lougheed protested that in  the comments which the newspapers,  or rather, he added, the newspaper,  for there v>.as hut one, had  made on the case it had gone beyond  its province, seeing that no verdict  had yet been reached. He referred to  the head lines and not to the reports  themselves which were .tccura'e  enough.  The proceedings were then adjourned till Wednesday morning, at 10:13.

The jury" retiied and having beeii  absent about two hours returned with  the verdict that Flagman Lascelles  was guilty of culpable negligence.  They also censured Engineer Sneiig-.  field for disobeying the slow order over  Willow Creek Bridge and Engineer  Haniil for delay in returning to the  second half of his train. Ihey added  that in their opinion a sufficient number of men were not employed on this  division.

At our TKN-MILE .BRANCH Etoro  Powder, Caps, Fuse, Coal, Steel,  and all Minora' and Prospectors' Supplies are  kept on hand  The inquest on James Robinson was  concluded at two o'clock this morning.  Having previously' been adjourned  from an earlier hour in the evening  the enquiry was reopened at 10:30 with  the examination of G-. Horner, tale-  graph operator at Claresholme. He  said that on the night o������ Ihe accident  he had made out a clearance crdfer for  Barclay, but he thought it must have  been forgotten as it was left in the  office. He also told Barclay that  Terry was doubling into Macleod from  about five or six miles north of there.  H.j had received this information by  wire from Macleod.  J. Richards, telegraph operator at  Macleod, was then called. Uo stated  that Terry reported to him about  seven o'clock that he was doubling in  from Willow Creek. Jle knew that  Barclay was on the way and enquired  two or three times whether he had  arrived at, Claresholm. Knowing,  however, that Barclay had an order to  hold for orders at Claresholm he felt  quite easy in his mind. He notified  the dispatcher that Terry was doubling before Barclay left ('liuesholiii.  This concluded the evidence.  The coroner in charging lhe jury  said there were three points which  they should rcinenibei: The accident  would not have occurred if the flagman had gone the proper distance  from his train, if Engineer Shengfield  had slowed up in going over Willow  BJITeHO &- CO.

Talton From Tlio Calgary Herald..  A. M. Grogan, who recently returned  from a visit to Rossland, says the year  1S17 has boon a very critical one for  tho Trail Cruek district, but tho camp  has stood thu test and has emerged  from the trial with flying colours alter  a period of partial depression and  doubt. At the beginning of the year  it was evident to all students of]the sit-  ation that the methods by which the  city had been intilicially boomed  during tho previous six months had  been completely broken down, and  thai, if funds were to be found for the  futtiie development of the mines, the  thing would have to be done ou a completely different system to that-hitherto in vogue. The same fate seemed  likely to threaten the existence of  everv property in tho caiup with the  exception of some half dozen of the  best and oldest claims. It very soon  became evident that a searching examination of the merits of each property was to be made before the purse  strings of the capitalists were to be  loosened.  Tho first and best known claim,  perhaps, upon which this process was  put into effect was the Monte Cristo,  in which case a strong-syndicate of  Montreal capitalists stepped into the  breach early last spring and took up  the development of the property at  tho point where the old management  had heen compelled for lack of funds,  to lay it down. " They were, quickly  rewarded for their enterprise by the  discovery of large bodies of ore of good  average grade, and it is not too much  to say that this claim ranks among the  first of the non-shipping mines, with  tho certainty of its becoming a shipper  within the next six months.  About the same time work .was  resumed on the Evening Star under  more or less similar conditions, which  is.still being carried on with very  favorable results.  " Before long the Poorman, ��������� from  which claim a gooddeal of high grade  ore had been shipped during 1S08, was  added to the -list.of mines whichwere  started up again.- The-Virginia,���������one  of the oldest'locations in the camp,���������  followed suit. The Deer Park was  set on its feet again by the intervention of a number of Ontario capitalists;  the Lilly May was provided-with-a  compressor plant and hoist, and set to  work again vigorously, and operations  were resumed upon the Great Western  mine.  In the meantime therestof the camp  had not been idle, the Le Roi had been  turning out dividends and ore shipments with great regularity; the development of the War Eagle had been  proceeding with inost encouraging  results; the Centre Star for the first  time in its history had shipped some  small fraction "of its immense ore  reserves; the iron Mask had- been  shipping regularly every week, as had  also the Cliff: the Josie, Jumbo, Iron  Colt. Colonna, Abe~Lincoln, Sunset 2,  "a"nd.NicI:el;Plate had all been hard at  work'. .On'tho Drown Point claim, on  the South Belt/the ledge after'much  difficulty, owing to large disturbances  and raults, had at last been recovered.  The ore shipments from the camp  which for the year 1838 had amounted  toSS.OOO tons, as against 19,000 for  JSOo, will amount this year close" upon  SO.GOOj.no unsatisfactory rssult, considering-that the Centre Star, War  Eagle and Nicklo Plate, have all pursued the policy of holding back their  ore for the present.  Turning, to_the question of railroads;  the recent'completion of the line from  Trail to Rossland by Mr. Heinze, .and  the starting to work by the C.P.R. on  their Crow's Nest branch from Lethbridge, viti Fort Steele, to Nelson,have  to be chronicled, as nlso the building"  hy_the_C.P.R.-of-a_branch^line~from-  Slocan lake to Slocan crossing, on  the Kootenay river. 'But no immediate effect will be produced by the  building of these lines* until the completion of thsTCrow'sNestroad enables  coke and coal to be shippeJ into this  country at very much lower rates.  Leaving the question of the mines  and turning to that of the town, it  may be admitted at once lhat although  Rossland has been over built to a certain extent, yet the values of property  have been veiy fairly maintained.  Considerable improvements in the way  of street grading, sidewalks, etc., have  been carried out, and- the appearance  of the town has been greatly altered,  and for tho better. Several syndicates  have been formed lately in Montreal  for tho sole purpose of real estate  investments, which have been very  lucrative to the investors, paying from  15 to 20 per cent, on their investments.  Insurance can how be obtained to 50  Eer cent, of th'e value of the property;  efore it was 'impossible to get any  one company to write more than  $1,000 on a block.  KIDNEY  SENSE.  Sir Edwin Arnold publishes in the  London Daily Telegraph 13 verses descriptive of the storming of Dargai on  October 20th. The first six tell of the  beating back of the Ghorkhas, the  Dorsetshires and the Derbyslnros.  Eight thousand muskets kept the  hill,  And that red bridge untravei'scd  still.  The    remaining    verses     may   he  quoted:���������  Then from grey hollows where   thoy  crouch  The sons of Scotland silent gather-  Wild indigo and tamarisks brush  The limbs bred in purple   heather���������  Tho Gordon Highlanders fall in���������  Pipers and all���������hell's bridge to win.  "Men of the Gordon Highlanders!"  Colonel Matthias loudly cries,  "The General's orders are to take,  Yonder positionl His   we'll make it,  The Gordon Highlanders will take it!"  To skirl of pipes and gleam  of   blades  The gloi ions band leaps joyous forth,  Drowning the muskets on the hill  With slogan from the noith.  Stay them !   Death's self, hell's self,  give ground  When Gordons to the battle bound I  Fierce, splendid, faithful,  stream our  Scots  To lightsome, homely Highland lilt  Too swift for fate, too bold to fall,  Rush buskin, plume, and kilt.  The lifty yards of fire are passed.;  The savage ridge is gained at last!  Down from the empty sangars fly  Those rebel hordes! ; the flaming hill  Is clear ! the grim position seized  As was the General's will.  The Colonel's simple word did make it,  "TheGordon Highlanders will take it!'*  Dear brothers of our blood! The cheers  Which hailed you conquerors, as ye  come  'Mid glad battalions welcoming you,  Down   marching from  that hill of  flame,  Echo in British homes today,  From north to south; from Thames to  Tay.  Folks -say   your   earliest files  were  raised - .  In bonnie town of Aberdeen,  Where lads King George's guinea took  A duchess' lovely lips between |- -  Scots, of the Gordon Highlanders,  The country's kiss is yours, life hers!.  i Alluding to the story that the  beautiful Duchess of Gordon offered  each man willing to-'join her husband's  new regiment a kiss and a guinea.

Care, exposure,  and hard work had evidently been his  lot in life.  As he stood on the rear platforir..~"  the Pullman with-p. red flag "in h's  hand" when'"the train was creeping  slowly up a three per cent giade in  the ' Selkirks, the'"passengers lazily  smoking inside remarked on his'.'gone"  appearance and hazarded guesses as to  ,the nature of his job. "- '."..'." i  _ "He's a road master," said one,'- "Or  a" section hand", yentured another.  "He's there to put'the breaks on if the  car breaks loose," said a third.  -After a while somebody opened the  door, and a question set the old man  talking, as he stood outside iu the falling snow. "'Tin put on this part of  the line to.watch the track," he told  us. -, "There is a man to every four  miles and each man walks his beat to  see that nothing goes wrong with the  sheds and bridges and to stop tb  trains if necessary."  "How often do you   walk   the  four  miles in a day?" queried an inquisitive  Yank. ���������  " "Ten times a day," he answered.  "hat's 40 miles a day," figured the  Yank. "Pretty good walkiug.,. How  many ho"urs"a"day are"you on duty."   -  "Twenty-four," cheerfully answered  he of. the furrows and flag, "if we  work an hour extra we get overtime," with a sober wink at the_.com-  mereial traveller. "I only took this  job because I was sick. I fell off a  bridge in the summer���������fell 40 feet and  struck the water. There was only a  foot of water and a bard rock bottom.  My head, was cut open, three ribs  broken and shoulder blade cracked  across.. When* I started this job I  only weighed 158 lbs.- At the endof  the lirst month I weighed -108 and I  think I can pick up the two odd  pounds before I jump, the job. I'm  supposed to walk, "and this is the first  ride I've had for weeks, I had to ride  so as to meet the other train in  time."  "You get a lot of snow here," suggested some one.  "Yas, we do. I keep track of it, I  have a level hoard 6et on top of a post,  and every morning I measure the  snowfall on that. I measure down to  tho sixteenth of an inch, same as I'd  measure a piece of wood. I calculate,  that sixty feet of snow falls here in an  average winter. It snows all the time  ���������never stops."  Just here somebody dropped a remark and the old man jumped off and  resumed his melancholy job of watch-  ing'the track.  ��������� -*���������*> ���������  London Daily Mail: Canadian Pacifies evinced a'saggingtendency which  the traffic increase of $105,000 for the  first week in November did not check,  The cause "of the dullness was the  revival of the story of an immediate  issue of preference stock to equip the  Crow's Nest Pass. We are requested  to deny the truth of this, the directors  intending to make no. immediate issue  as money is not yet wanted." The  absurd story that a German-syndicate  bad underwritten the total issue was  absurd upon the face of it, and is  absolutely without foundation.
