Outj  A POLITICAL PECKSNIFF  So the Mail does not think llio timu  hns arrived for Conservatives in liev-  I'lstoke to oi-gauizo. In fact it does  not see any use for Hiieh nn organization nt all. Only the Grits are allowed,  in the Mail's idea of what is convenient  and suitable.', to have associations.  Tlii*y are the people. They can have  associations and conventions and platforms on provincial affairs, but Conservatives are only peanut politicians,  who have no right to any of these  privileges. The Mail is losing not ils  common sense, whii/h would perhaps be 11 difficult mutter, but  even its sense of -common decency, in its desperate efforts to  please its master and earn its money.  But Conservatives are, not likely to  pay nny attention to the insults of a  reptile organ -of the calibre of the  Mail. Tho poor thing has to go 1 hrough  its unties at the crack of the whip, and  if-iii its clumsy efforts to please the  boss, it should happen'tostep on somebody's toes, .allowance's enn.Jic made.  It probably does not really mean to be  offensive, but it does riot know any  hotter. ,       '  BLUE JAY ~1"N1"*"L CL*,I"I.  Si'.uote in the Illecillewaet Mining Dhiaion.

Its latest role is that of the political  Pecksniff, and is well worth noticing.  It cannot enduie that Conservative!,  should have as much as a, local associ-  ution iu Kevelstoke, Hnd at the same  time with hypocritical itiipi.der.ee is  asking people to believe that the recent  Liberal convention and"their volun-  tceied ultimatum on provincial aff.iits,  have nothing tn do with the introduction of party . lines 'into provincial  affairs. It is-loud in its Pecksniffeon  protestation of iunoceiice. 'The Gi its,  it cries, do not want-provincial party  lilies drawn at the next election. The  convention, the association, the platform have nothing to do with any;  thing of the kind. - In fact if anything  they were intended to prevent the  introduction of Dominion politics into provincial affairs. How noble, is the  indignation, of   the  Kootenay--Peck-  Miifl at Iho bare idea of jiny such  I hing I llow refrcshingits innocence I  How exalted its virtue I How astonishing its resemblance to its great  prototype, that wondeiful mixture of  arrogance, self conceit and humbug 1  The wits, not of course of tho "Mail,  but of its masters, must bu trotting  very dull in tho enjoyment of this fat  things of ollice, if they expect people  to swallow this kind of gush without  a murmur.  But it won't work. Conservatives  may have no rights'-that the Mail and  its boss feel bound to respert, but they  are not simply natural born fools lor  all' that. They know very well the  fate which has befallen tho provincial  administrations of Ontario and Manitoba, under Giit auspices, and they are'  by no means anxious lo see British  Columbia added to the list of Grit  triumphs. Whatever may be the ultimate outcome of the present crisis in  the affaiis-of this province, it quite  obviously behooves Conservatives to  make sure that at all events the Liberal little game i.s turned' down. It  worked pretty slick at. (iist.but recently has go: a considerable setback and  Pecksniir is very mad about it-and  uses bad language, quite unbecoming  in so viituous a character. But. if our  enemies have lost their heads, that is  all the more reason why we should  keep cool, organize our party and  watch the progress of events, ready if  necessary to act with promptitude aud  decision.

He said: "We  have done now somewhere in the  neighborhood of .$00 feet of development woik. To begin with we run an  incline tunnel for about 80 feet, and  then going some distance away drove  actosscut. after reaching the vein we  drifted back and toiinected with the  incline tunnel. At the angle formed  by the crosscut tunnel and drift, we  sunk a winze for a depth of 50 feet.  and when we left ol" work weie engaged in drifting right and left from  the bottom of the winze. The vein  heie is six feet thiough and cuts the  formation. The p.iystronk is 30 inches  in width and eoniunsed of two feet of  concentrates mid about six inches of  clean ore, the average of which runs.  25t ounces silver and 75 per cent. lead.  About 30 tons of this ore is now on the  dump, tind if the vein continues to  look as well as it does~at piesent. we  will have as rich a proposition us  there is in the district."

Anybody would _. almost think that  either Itevelstoke was the first place  in the Dominion to attempt incorporation, or that everybody in it had  dropped from the skies, or else, as tlie  Herald is -rathej' inclined to believe  inust.be the case "with ^some of the  'tii'uibers of both.the old'and the present committee,'have never lived'in an  incorporated town in Western Canada  or helped to make the history of one  of them. There is, it appears, a big  stick in some, people's'minds for fear  the whole of the money collected by  taxation should go to pay official salaries. Can anybody give one single  instance in the Dominion in which  this has been,the case, or in which incorporation has not inablcd a place to  spend money to increase in u dozen  ways its conveniences and comforts as  ���������i point of business and residence ?  Other people are scared r lest the  Smelter Co. or some other townsite  owners shrnild_oppose��������� incorporation;"  but surely it is not our business to he  exercising our imagination, to in vent-  obstacles to incorporation. It will be  quite tune enough lo meet and conquer theni when they actually arise.  Such opposition, if it exists at all, will  be just as likely to exist ten years  hence as to-moirow.  The gist of the whole matter is just  this: Incoipoiatiou is a fine thing for  any place that is going ahead. It is a  bad thing for a town that is standing  still or declining. People expect to  sec a live place incorporated. They  wonder why* its occupants choose to  remain so long in a disorganized condition. They.look upon iucoiporatioii  as a sign of the faith of the inhabitants in their own town. If we believe  iu Revelstoke's fiituie as*the coming  business centre of North Kootenny.  by all means let us incorporate. If,  on the other hand, we really* think  that the pi ogress of this place during  the past few years rests on no solid  foundation, and that its futtiie is uncertain, then let us leave incorporation  alone. But at all events let us nuke  up our minds on the subject, and if we  have decided on incorporation, let us  go to work like men who mean to  have it and to make it an advantage  and benefit to our town; not like people who do not know exactly whether  they want it or not, and are half  scared how it will turn out if they do  get it.

THE W'INTER TRIP  (From the Calgary Herald)  The unexpected  in   regard  to  overland      travel      toward     the  Yukon has happened.    While   a  big rush this way ~va~ expected  in the spring very lew were prepared  for   the    tide    which   has  already set  in . of. parties determined to make their way to the  gold fields over the snow.    Since  the beginning of  winter   several  " parties have arrived and outfitted  tor the lonsc trip over the snow  and more are coming.   People who  know from experience   what are  -the difficulties and hardships of a  long winter journey such as this  don't require to be reminded that  under the most favorable circumstances the trip is a serious undertaking.-   It is in the interest- of  .  the' overland route itself, no less  than in the interests of those now  starting that the-dangers of the  trip should not be underestimated.  Not only is the trip with sleighs an  arduous undertaking in itself, but  there is to be faced the probability  ���������in fact it might safely be called  the certainty���������of being blockaded  anywhere   between   Peace River  and  Lake   Francis.     Spring and  bare ground would thus find the  travellers    with      their     sleiyhs  and with no means of continuing  their march  except on   fcot,   or  with  an   insufficient  number   ol  horses,  which    would   of   course  necessitate abandoning a considerable portion of their supplies.   It  is much better that the intending  gold  seeker   should   know   soiue-  ~tbinTof~tlre~diniculties"-ii*~h-s-to  f ace than that he should discover  them  when  beyond  reach  of   a  remedy.  POLICY OF THE  C. P. R.  IN THE WEST  Tj tho Editor of Tub Hkiiald.  SIR,���������Having in mind the many inconveniences suffered by travellers at  the hands of the Canadian Pacilie railway in the west and at this point in  particular, and in view of the manv  .recent accidents occurring on the  western division, it appeals* to me an  opportune time to call the attention  of the people of Canada to the policy  of tbat gigantic corporation u in the  west. Particularly is the time opportune, as it is generally known that at  tbe approaching session of Parliament  Tct another haul will be���������or rather  the attempt will lie���������made to exact or  extrACtan additional subsidy or .bonus  out of the people ot Can.idaoii account  of the construction of the Crow's Nest  Past-railway. With that I shall have  nothing to say in this, communication  further than to state on the authority  of competent railway contractors as  well an of engineers of established reputation, tnat the Canadian Pacific  will net^-out of the bonus given theni  hy parliament at its last session'1 of  eleven thousand dollars per mile���������a  clear one million dollars in cash, and  in addition, the land bonus granted to  ttaeB. C. Southern by the Government of British Columbia. Whether  this, when considered: in connection  with the value of their franchise, is  enough, or whether they are entitled  to more, I will leave Jlr. Farrar, who  was sent west to write up the neces-  ������-it"ps ot the case, to say. * The object  of this communication is rather to call  attention to the parsimony of the  policy of that corporation in the west,  " and the danger that must ensue as the  result of a continuation of that policy  to th<* travelling public.-*  I will mention first, Mr. Editor, the  I breeaccidents that have occured within the past few days at Calgary, the  two on the McLeod branch, and then  the one on the big hill to the west.  First there was the "jam-in", as Jt is  is called in railway parlance. It hap-  __. pened-aliout half past twelve at night,  "only fifteen minutes before the express was, due from the west, one  freight running into another. Some  thousands of dollars worth ot freight  was lost; an engine disabled; the line  blocked; but, fortunately, no one very  seriously injured.  Verdict���������(practically):   "No   one   to  blame."  The truth was-that because of the  parsimony of the policy of the C. P.  It. on this division, there were not  signalmen enough to do the work.  Trainmen are expected and are enjoined to do the work of switchmen; they  depend on "orders". Orders It must  be understood are messages from the  dispatcher, and anyone who has had  to do with the office at Calgary knows  how almost impossible it is lo get any  satisfaction, much less' a message, ont  of or through the operative office of  telegraph service at Calgaiy. Of that I  will have something to say at the close  of this letter, In a word the management is too stingy, because of the  desire to make a good financial showing to put enough men on to  do the work, and too shortsighted to  see, or too indolent to look into the  cause of the accident whicli caused the  loss of a few thousand dollars of freight  and the miraculous escape of a lew  employees, where it might have  been liundrods of passengers of the  regular express under die same policy.  A few days later almost at the same  hour at night, when the express wiLli  its human freight is expected from the  west, and an hour and a half later the  express is due from the east, two  freight trains collide in the Calgary  yard, the one from the west, heavily  loaded, and v. ith a car lo.ul of dynamite, pitches engine on into another  freight. The result was a most complete wreck of two engines and one  freight train. Fortunately the train  hands escaped with a few slight bruises. But, Mr. Editor, one trembles at  what might have been the result had  the car of dynamite exploded. As it  -was the-fcender was-jammed���������intn_the-  car of dynamite; the latter did not  explode, or the city of Calgary would  now have been in ruins and hundreds,  ave, perhaps thousands, of lives  lost, as the result of what weare bound  to believe, a parsimonious economy of  the management on this division.  The verdict, as the result of an enquiry, (practically): "Xo one to  blame."  The next, and only a few days later,  was the breaking through of a freight  tram crossing the Bow river bridge  three miles east of Calgary. This  bridge had been condemned a year ago  and was tit the time under repair, yet  it must be evident to the most impartial that "some one blundered" else the  train would not have been allowed to  cross. The same result v.-ould have  followed had the train been a passenger.  The accident on tbe big hill is a more  glaring evidence of carelessness cr incapacity, or both, because of the economy chaiacteristic of lhe management. The main line is and has been  for some time in a. notoriously bad  condition. It will be understood that  on each side of the Big Hill safety  switches are put m. These are always  open for the purpose of catching a runaway train, and are only closed on a  signal from the engine in charge of a  train. In this" instance, the freight  train west bound had got away from  the brakemen; had the engineer allowed it to go the wreck of the passenger  train then standing at Field would  have been inevitable. They took the  switch and with it their lives in their  hand������. The engine was turned up and  disabled and freight and cars were  tumbled promiscuously into the Kick-  ingHorse. Said a railway engineer  to the writer not long ago: "God pity  the man who is forced to take one of  these switches, they are old, rotten  and worn out. They have been in for  12 years and would not hold a wheelbarrow.  Verdicl:  "No blame to anyone."  The last two occurred in the neighborhood of Macleod on Friday night  last. The writer has not learned the  particulars, but it is known now two  lives have been lost. Another man  escaped with two broken legs which  will probably have to be amputated,  another bruised so badly that it is  doubtful whether he will ever be well  again. (Since the same has been  written the man has died of his  injuries). Theie is not a doubt that if  an impartial examination is made  that the direct cause will be found to  be in one case one result of that economy characteristic of the management  and in the other gross if not criminal  carelessness.  _Just a word respecting the telegraph  service in connection with tho runninc  of trains, particularly at Calgary. I  say in connection with running of  trains, for so far as 1 am able to learn  no complaint is made of the commercial branch of that service. But in  connection with the arrival and departure of trains, the system���������it' system it  can be called���������is rotten. Civility or  oven ordinary courtesy is an unknown  quantity. It is a rarity to be able to get  any information from the operator as  to the arrival of trains, and it is a frs-  quent occurence, in fact, infrequently  the reverse���������thatptissengois are called  at the dilTercnt hotels and kept for  hours waiting in uncertainty. A  travelling agent of.the company said  not long ago to the writer: "L don't  wonder that the people here kick, it is-  a shame,*' and in reply to my question  why he did not report the lacts he  saw; that to do so he said would be to  bring the whole operative stall, down  on his head. More recently a -Minister  of the Crown complained bitterly at  being called I think six hours before  the departure of a train and expressed  his intention of repotting thiugs as he  found them to Sir William Van  Home, by whom he had been asked to  note any" irregularity in the service.  It is sincerely to be hoped, both in the  interests of the railway and the public,  that the minister's good resolution  will hold until he reaches Ottawa.  In conclusion, Mr. Editor, I wish to  state that I am. writing without a  particle of malice or unkindly leeling  towards the Canadian Pacific railway  or any person connected in any way  with ic, and am only stating what 1  believe to be true of the condition of  things existing, which in the interests  -0"_the-raiLw.Lsy__anrl___inone___particiilaiI\-.  in the interests of the public of Can-"  ada should exist no longer. It is a  notorious fact that the Canadian Pacific Railway are���������in so far as it is  possible for ti gigantic corporation  with almost unlimited i-'sources to be  ���������censors of the press, if not the masters of it. With their patronage and  judicious distribution of ptiises, our  legislators and public men are no  longer free agents, and too often it i-.  painfully evident that thev dare'not  speak out in the interests of their constituents, fearing the "glassy eye" of  the company, and all it involves to  them. Are the public to continue to  be "hewers of wood and drawers of  water?'' Have.' we any rights that  they should respect? Possibly not.  Mr. Editor. Then is the earth" theirs  and the fullness thereof.  Tn.WKI.LKl".  FERGUSON  The Centre   of the   Lardeau - Mines  Tte Pioneep  Stores  ,ir-,of Ferguson  and Ten .Mile  Cummins, & Co.

"Hero wo aro again," ciied our Fat  Member on our reassembling last  night. Wo half expected to scoliim  execute a dcmivoltu on lho floor.  Happily for the foundations of our at  present excellent fabric ho refrained.  How tho familiar words brought buck  past yuletides, pantonimesand reminiscences of poor dead Harry Payne and  his garb of motley���������but this is digressive.  We had not met together for some  clays; our several avocations having  temporarily dispersed us in vaiioii"  parts of the happy land wc live in.  The Chief was not in a responsive  mood. He sat silent, and an unwonted  expression of seriousness was on his  countenance. We could see that some  burden, of which, ny the way, he  delivered himself later, was on his  soul.  One of us started the subject of the  election of Van Wvck as mayor of  New Vork���������the victory of Tammany  Hall���������and the startling utterance of  the boss of that organization, Richard  Croker, that bo did not remember  having done anything that he ought  not to have done; for lie had only  good all his life. Either his memory  was short or his modesty required  remodelling, This led us on to speak  of the recent installation of the Lord  Mayor of London.  -"How quietly these things are done  over there," said the Cynic.^ " Just as  they have been for hundreds of years.  Tho aspirant for the~curule chair is  elected without disturbance and stops  into office with a blare of trumpets  and as part of a pageant in which he  was predestined to figure from the  buginmng. ��������� ,  ��������� "And think of the beautiful banquet  at the Guildhall on installation night)  and the speeches of the cabinet ministers���������and the lashins and lavins on the  morrow," si~hed the .Fat Man as he  unconsciously stroked the region 'of.  his diaphragm. "Why couldn't we  have something of the sort here, barring the speechifying?" *    -  " That reminds mc" said the Chief,  " that I have something to say to you,  on a kindred"subj"*ct.\ We are now  on tlie eve of electing tbe men who,  aie to govern this city for the year  1S9S. Every succeeding year, as election time comes ^rnundrsibe members  of the Council are held up as inefficient  or unworthy of public confidence, and  _ yet how few will take any trouble to  remove tbe grounds of complaint. It  was long ago observed that a country  had the government which it deserved.  The same observation applies to a  municipality. If the most capable  inhabitants of a city will rest content  with sighing over misrule, and will  make no effort to better tho condition  of things, they deserve to suffer for  .their supineness. _.If they hold__J_h_e_m__,  Selves aloof from taking their <-share  in the responsibility of directing the  affairs of the city in which they live  and labor, either because it is too  much trouble or because social position  or intellectual  attainment  manes it  recourse tc a man of law arises, there  is a proper oflicer to whom the matter  can he icferred. '-  Most men would hive felt rebuffed���������  not so the L-iwyor; he only smiled  imperturbil ly as one unconvinced;  I have an idea he means to run for a  seat after all.  Nicotine.  distasteful to associate with those they  may deem their inferior", or whatever  the reasons~rnay bo which actuate  them in' so, holding aloof, they have  only themselves to thank, if they  come under the government of the  very men they despise. Plato long  ago enjoined every virtuous citizen to  rescue the state from the usurpation  of vice, corruption and ignorance,  ond I would urge on you as good citizens the duty you owe to each other  and to your fellow citizens to  use your influence to induce  really capable representative men  to come forward as candidates  for the new council., Mind, I am not  finding fauit with the existing body,  Imt I am quite sure lhat it is not sufll-  eienlly representative and that fresh  blood will make it more efficient for  good.  "I quite.agree," the Cynic said, with  the views you have put forward, but I  feel the dimeulty that exists in overcoming the not unnatural scruples of  those who perhaps are the most competent.' The distastefulness of canvassing;���������the chancesof beind defeated  by some admittedly inferior candidate,  who may be supported by class prejudice, or put forward to represent some  particular scheme; and other reasons  which will occur to yon militate far  psora against the right men coming to  the front than does the contemplated  expenditure of time and self sacrifice  which a public oftfoe entails.  "Why, as to that, cried the Lawyer  I was about to observe, that I wasjust  considering this lo be an opportune  Juncture to throw myself into the gulf  and allow myself to be   "No sir, interrupted the Chief, "that  is not what I meant. I don't think  any of your tribe would bean acrjuisi-  tion to such a governing body as ip  required  here.     When  occasion for  A FULL ENQUIRY  INTO THE COLLISION AT  WILLOW CREEK  Inquest on the Body of a Victim��������� Died  of Heart Failure Says the C. P. R.  Doctor-Working Twenty-Five Hours  Without Sleep.  Calgary, November 27, ISO".  ,  Tho inquest on the body of James  Robinson, the llreinan, who died from  injuries received on the Willow Creek  accident, on the Macleod branch, was  re-opened by Coroner Sanson on Tues  day morning at the Barracks.  The first three witnesses had nothing of very great importance to say.  John Pugb, a Calgary laborer,deposed  to knowing deceased.  James Smart, undertaker, of Cal-  Oalgary, having been sworn, said he  took the body trom the car in order to  prepare it for burial. He received a  certificate of death from Dr. Mackid.  The certificate slated that death was  "due to heart failure."  George Ilillier, ' station agent at  Ciilsjary, being next ca'led, gave information respecting the running of  trains on tho Calgary-Macleod line,  but stated he did not know- why the  car3 into which Robinson's engine  ran were stuck on the ro\d.  In the afternoon the first witness to  be called was Dr. Mackid. Being  swoin he said that he saw Robinson on  Saturday night in the caboose on the  track at YVillow Creek; so far as he  was able to do so he examined the  man's injuries. So painful was it,  however, for him to be moved, that  examination was necessarily of a very  superficial character. He bandaged  hun and fixed him up with pillows,  etc., so that the jolting of the car  "should affect him as little as possible.  He also gave a hypodermic injection  of ' a qnarter of. - a gratn-  of *_ j morphia. --, Deceased was  very thirsty and "asked repeatedly  for ale. *As they neared High River,"  on their way to Calgary, he seemed to  rally, and spoke to Conductor Barclay  a'skiug if he thought his (Robinson's)  time ticket would go on. He then  asked for water,'whieh was given him.  At High River witness left the caboose  in order to telegraph to the matron of  of the Calgary General hospital to  make such preparations as might be  necessary for the reception of the  sufferers. On returning 'to the 'caboose he found the patient dead. ' In  answer to direct questions^the witness  stated.that the injuries to' the pelvis  were sufficient in themselves to cause  death. Nevertheless he had stated in  the certificate of death which he had  granted that death was caused by  heart failure. He knew that this was  the common, cause of.death. But be  thoughtrirrwas a'"inb"st~convenient ex-  firesston. The heart failure'was caused"  ty internal   hemorrhage  and  shock.  -But*he could not'say this on Lhe certificate of doath;there was no room on the  paper so he merely wrote "heart  failure." Besides he thought it impossible for a medical man to give an  absolutely certain certificate of death,  without having held a post-mortem  examination. Witness received two  telegrams from Supt. Niblock. The  first was to see that the remains were  prepared for burial and. tbe second contained instructions as to shipping the  body for burial.  In answer to a juryman: Deceased  made no complaint as to anyone being  to blame for the accident.  The next witness to be sworn was  John Telfer, road master, Calgiry.  He said that in winter only the section  -foremen remained on the road and they  were left to decide for themselves  which part of their sections required  inspection. He could not account for  the stopping of the first train on the  track. There was no grade steep  enough to cause a stoppage under ordinary circumstances. The engine  was a three-wheeled mogul. Barclay's  crew consisted of Engineer Shenfield,  the deceased and brakesmen S. Lloyd  and J. McGarry.'Engineer Hamul had  with him a fireman whose name he  did not ��������� know, Harry Liscelles and  another brakesman.  AN IMPORTANT WITNESS  Dayid Dean, fireman, of Can more,  said that he had been with Engineer  Shenfield since the first of November.  He had "booked a rest" on Friday  abont 1.80 p. m��������� and the deceased took  his place.. He had then been on duty  for 25 consecutive hours without sleep.  It was not unusual to work so long; he  had done so himself before. Engineer  Shenfield had also been on duty for 25  hours before he went on to Macleod  on Friday, in charge of engine 40.  They were entitled to "book rest"  when they had bsen on duty 15 hours  if they were where a substitute could  be found. His impression was that  Robinson was not an experienced tire-  man. They were paid by the Aile at  the rate of $2.15 per 100 milesatra were  also allowed pay for detention. - He  had never made any complaint as to  o"verwork.  Dr. J. D. l__afferty was next called  and read tne report of the post mortem examination, which. Dr. Rouleau  and himself had made of the deceased  Apparently Robinson had been a  healthy man. * Internal hemmorhage  had been the cause of death. He never  'remembered giving heart failure as  the cause of death, nor did he think it  was a usual practice in tlie profession.  Heart failure was always the cause  of death/  Dr. E. H. Rouleau agreed to the report which had been "read. He had  never heard of heart failure being  given as the cause of death and he did  not remember ever having given such  a certificate himself. It struck him as  a strange verdict.  This closed the proceedings for the  day. tho inquest being adjourned to  Wednesday morning at 10.30.  The first witness to be called on  Wednesday morning in the,ino,uest on  the body of James Robinson, C. P. tt.  fireman, was Sergt. Brooke,who swore  to serving subpoenas on Conductor  Terry and brakesmen J. McGarry and  Robert Smith.     Tbe  subpoenas had  been disregarded and Coroner Sanson  gave ordeis lor lhe arrest of  the men.  The remainder of the sitting was  occupied in the examination of engineer Shinglleld who was in charge of  lhe engine on which the deceased was  fireman. A thorough investigation  was made as to the number of hours  he had been on duty without rest from  the first of tho month to the time of  the accident. For tho first three days  of November he was on a woik train  at Cochrane.- On the Jlli he took  took charge of engine 40 tunning from  Calgary to Edmonton and Macleod.  On that dav he was on duty for 20A  hours; on the 5th he worked for 10i  hours; during the 7lh, Sth, and Dili ho  was on duty lor 48" consecutive hours:  on the'lOth he worked 15 hours; on  tlio 11th, 21 hour-,- during the 12th  and lath, 201 consecutive hours; on the  14th, H$ hours; on the loth 17J hours;  during tho 10th and 17th, 20J consecutive hours; on the 18th and 10th for  31 consecutive hours, up to the limo of  the accident, which occurred at 10  minutes past 0 p.m. At the time of  the accident therefore ho had been on  duty for thirty-one hours.  His running orders which were then  produced showed that he had been  given tho right of the road to High  River, that at High River he had been  told to proceed to Olaresholme, and  that at Claresholme he had the l ight  of the road to Macleod.  He said the night of the accident  was very dark and stormy. Tim first  warning he received .of Ihe train in  front ot him was from the flagman  who was about "00 yards from the rear  end of the train. He crossed the  Willow Creek bridge at the rate of  about 15 miles an hour. The company  had a rule that the bridge should not  be crossed at a greater speed than five  miles an hour, hub the night was so  dark that he did not know where he  was until ho struck the bridge. He  had not known where he was since  leaving Leavings. After putting Willow Creek bridge behind him he got  up steum ou acco jnt of a heavy grade  which began near the place where  the accident occurred. He told the  deceased to fire up and added that it  was the hist grade they would have to  pass before reaching Macleod. He had  no control over the train that night  except such as the air brake in the tender and the hand brakes afforded.  There were no air brakes on'the cars.  He thought that the train might have,  been stopped in a little over half a  mile by means of the handbrakes. "As  soon as he saw the flagman he immedi-'  ately whistled for brakes and reversed  the engine to the full power* of the  boiler. The head brakesman responded immediately to his call for brakes  There was a light at the rear end of  the train in front of them. The flagman whom he saw had a red and  whitelantern. He heard no torpedoes,  According to the rules of the company the flagman should have been at  least a mile from the rear of the train  he was protecting. He stuck to his  engine and did all in his power to pull  up, till "within two car lengths of the  train in front. Then he jumped. As  he did so he called to Robinson to  "Come on." It was all he had  time to say. He thought  that the deceased followed him, but  could not be certain. Tbe first person  he saw on picking himself up was the  road master, to whom he said: "Have  you seen' my mate? I * believe - he's  killed." He then saw' Robinson laying  on what be took to be the roof of one  of the wrecked cars. It was impossible  to take tbe wounded men to Macleod  tis there was nothing in which they, in  their condition, could have been  properly conveyed.  On one occasion he had asked for  rest after working 18 hours and objections had been raised; but as a rule  he thought that the company 'would  allow a man rest after working 12  hours if it was asked for. On the  occasion when he had worked for 48  hours he could have "'booked rest" if  he had wished to do so.' They never  booked less than eight hours rest.  Three or four train ciews are stationed  at Canmore as a reserve.  A doctor had been sent for from  Maclecd.to attend-to_the_injured;���������he-  attended to Robinson but- did not  bandage him. Dr. Mackid bandaged  him when he arrived next morning.  Robinson was 21 years old. He thought  he was from Dundas, Ont.; he had  heard that he had a brother in Winnipeg. *���������  The train which had stuck on the  line was supposed to consist of 19  ears. He had himself taken 28 loads  over that point but bad not had to  break. He had never had occasion to  break at that point. He was under  the impression that the train ahead of  him was three or four hours late;  he had no information to that  effect except what he . bad gathered  from a brakesman.  In the course ot the enquiry witness  stated the deceased was inexperienced  and had not been over the(roitd before.  This closed the proceedings for the  day. The inquest was then adjourned  to 10.30 a.m. Thursday.  he might die. He did not think he  would die; he seemed quite cheerful.  Dr. Mackid told him he was not seriously injured. 'Ho considered Las-  cellos a thoroughly competent man.  Asa general iuie conductors did not  remove instructions respecting trains  ahead of theni, except when the rear  tiaiu was the fasler orwhenitwasonly  10 minutes behind.  In answer to questions : A man  would be useless to theni if he would  only work 12 hours before booking rest, as thciu would be times when  he would not be able to reach the  divisional points in that number of  hours. The divisional points wero the  only places where rest could be booked. The men were not required to go  on duly after IS hours work. As to tho  rumor thaL the company iiacl tried lo  smuggle tho body away he denied it  emphatically, He hud wired to Dr.  Mackid to have the body nreptued for  burial and hud then wired to Winnipeg for instructions. He received in-  sli notions from Winnipeg to issue an  order for trati.sportfi.lion ot the body.  The inquest was then adjourned to  Friday morning.  TELEGRAPHIC NEWS  WiNNipEG.Novembei 21.

His evidence went lo show  that it is one of the rules of the company that when a stoppage occurs on  a main line such as took place at Willow Creek it is the duty of the conductor to send a flagman some 3,000  feet to the rear to protect the train.  In regard to the number of hours dining which the men were accustomed  lo work he said that he thought 48  hours was not to long for a train crew  to remain on duty in special cases.  This perhaps might not apply to the  Bremen, whose work is more laborious.  According to the rules of the company it was necessary for a man to  have been on duty at least 15 hours  before booking rest. Although in cases  where a man had along "tip ahead of  him without the chance of booking  rest at a divisional point he may lay  off after nine hours work. It was no  advantage to the company for train  ciews to remain 011 di}ty  for    long  feriod; they were paid by the mile,  f there was any advantage it was  that if they worked for a short, uniform time there would be occasions  on which there wculd be a large excess of men. and other occasions on  which there would not be a sufficient  number available. The amount of  traffic on the line was very variable.  He also thought lhat they got the best  woik out of the men when they worked long hours. If shorter hours were  adopted the men would be apt to  spend their time in amusements which  would unfit them for work, rather  than in sleep.
