GREAT MAIL  ROBBERY  Jerry   Boyce   gives    Damning:  Evidence    Against     Lawyer  Bangs of  Calgary���������The Participation of Behan.  Regina, N. AV. T., May 3.���������Tlie preliminary hearing of Lawyer Bangs, of  Calgary, charged   with   complicity in  the   Wilcox   mail   robbery case, was  proceeded with yesterday.   The principal witness was B. G. Boyce, hotel-  keeper, of Gleichen, who is also under  arrest, charged with  being a receiver  of  a   portion   of   the   stolen money.  Boyce stated that, wliile living in Cal  gary in February last, he had borrowed ������2.000 from Bangs, and given him a  mortgage on some property at High  River.   He asked Bangs for the loan.  Bangs  said he thought he could get  the motley.     Two days later, he went  again   to   Bangs' office, and  gave the  mortgage for $2,000.     The money he  received on the  mortgage consisted of  Bank of Hamilton bills in denominations of   five and ten dollars.     Bangs  told   him   he   wanted   the   money in  order to buy a hotel in British Columbia, but   would   nor\  want it spent in  this part of the country.    Bangs further told witness that the money was  supposed to be part of that stolen from  the mail car, but that in British Columbia it would be all right, aud there  would   be   no danger about it.   The  witness went to British Columbia, but  made no arrangements about a hotel,  and,  instead, went to Seattle, where  he tried   to   exchange the money but  failed.   He. then returned to Calgary,  and saw Bangs, aud told  him he had  turned the   money .over-to some one  else,   who .was   known   as    Thomas  Behan.,   Bangs asked if the man *was  all right,'and witness had replied that  he was, and  thought Behan would be  able to get some   of * the   money ex  changed.   Witness had given^some of  the'money to Behan to have exchange  and had gone to the express office  Trout Lake Notes.  General Mnnager'JIendorson, of tho  Canadi.-rii Timber & Sawmills Ltd.  returned from the coast during the  week where he in company with  Presid.nt "Ward held a consultation  with the railway authorities relative  to transportiation on the lake. Asa  result of the conference the C. P. R.  will build a new boat and a slip will be  built al Gerrard, and the mill Co. will  build a car barge.  E. L. Kinman will start at once getting out the timber for the barge, the  construction of ���������. which will be started  at once.  The projected electric light plant is  being considered favorably and Mr.  Henderson thinks there will be no  doubt that Trout Lajce will be a well  lighted town before the snow flies.  ^  The mill is Hearing completion and  considering the great;, disadvantage  under which construction has labored  and the nnforseen difficulties encountered in the transportation of the machinery, great credit is 'due Mr. Henderson in having matters in such good  shape as they are at  present.���������Topic.  DEATH OF  SENATOR REID  Representative From Cariboo in  Dominion Upper House Succumbs After a Long Illness���������  Pioneer of B. C.

Cross-examined, Boyce told of an  interview after coming to Regi'na, at  which he had made a statement in  writing, and which was now in the  possession of Crown Prosecutor Johnstone.    ���������  Counsel for Bangs, before proceeding further with the cross-examination  asked Johnstone to produce the statement referred to by Boyce. Johnstone  was unable to do so yesterday, and  counsel being unwilling to proceed  without being- shown a written statement, the hearing was adjourned until to-day. -  Later���������Brings was committed  trial this afternoon.  for  Cclleen Bawn.  Rehearsals for Colleen Bawn. the  well known Irish drama which will'be  >erj5fFduWd"ih~tliFOpera House on'tlie  evening of Victoria Day, May 24th,  are being held regularly and with  considerable success. Mr. T. Dunne is  working hard to have the scenery  finished when'full rehearsals will take  place. The scenery will be the best  ever put upon the stage in this city,  the costumes are heing specially prepared for the play and Colleen Bawn  will doubtless lie the treat of the season. There is no doubt but a large  audience will reward the efforts of  those in charge. A general admission  of SI to any part of the house will lie  made, while children will be admitted  for half price. At the conclusion of  the performance a dance will be held,  for which no extra charge will be  made. ������������������  A mining deal of no small importance was consummated this week,  says the last issue of-the Camborne  Miner, when the Lily group, situated  on Menhinick creek, was purchased by  local investors, who have formed a  development company*" locally which  has taken over 'and amalgamated the  Lily and Canada groups; It is learned  that a large sum of .* l^cneyxhanged  hands in the transaction; tbe vendors  of the Lily group>.being Jas.-.Tobin, of  Beaton, and Chas. F. Lindmark and E.  M. Allum, of Revelstoke.- ���������  .The development company has  drafted out future development of  the property and will put a force of  men to work at once.  This is one of the many deals that  will take place here this summer. It  is pleasing to note that this deal has  been taken up by local men," who are  thoroughly acquainted with the values  of this camp; and will prove to outsiders that local investors have every  faith in the future of this camp and  are willing to invest their money in  the golden opportunities that exist  here.  -   Rosbland Woman Shot.  Rossland, May 3���������Mrs. Peter Clare,  wife of it respected miner, living on  Nickel Plate flat, was probably fatally  shot by accident in her own home on  Sunday evening. The family of Michael P. Villcneuve, ex-secretary of the  Miners' Union, were experimenting  with a Winchester repealing rifle of  22 calibre, and the bullet of the rifle  went tlirough the door of Clare's  ho"us^strikiTig_MrsrClar^iirtlie_^ht  hip, penetrating the bone and lodging  in the abdomen. An operation was  performed this afternoon at the gen-  eaal hospitiil, but the patient is in a  critical condition, and not likely to  live. The fatal shot was fired by Mrs.  Villeneuve, who is prostrated ovor the  accident.  The death of  Senator  James Reid  on Tuesday at his  residence  in  Vancouver,   was    not    unexpected.       It  has been   well  understood   for  some  time by his intimate friends that his  condition was   such   that   there   was  little   hope  for  his  recovery.     Last  November at Quesnel Mr.  Reid   met  with an accident, caused by a runaway  team iind received severe  internal injuries.   He improved  somewhat and  later left for Ottawa to take  up   his  senatorial   duties,   but  soon   became  seriously ill and w.vs taken to the   hospital for treatment. A month ago Mrs  Reid brought  him   home,  as   it   wo  thought the climate   and   home   surroundings might assist in his recovery'  But while the railway trip was  made  in comfort, Mr. Reid failed to improve  in health,  a serious  internal  trouble  having  developed,   probably as    the  result of the November accident.  Mr. Reid was 61 years of age and a  Cariboo pioneer. He was born in  Ontario, coming to Cariboo when  about 20 years of age. He mined and  worked hard at anything he undertook. He was express agent and postmaster at Quesnel for years, finally  opening a, general store; his business  there has grown .to large proportions.  His general store, which has been for  the past ten years in charge, as' has  his other Quesnel business, largely ot  John A. Fraser, supplies annually a  large number of prospectors,' miners  and ranchers. Senator Reid was the  owner of a flouring mill. that is operated every season, and the principal  owner of the river steamer Charlotte!  'that plies on the Fraser between Soda  Creek and Quesnel. He also held  valuable mining., interests and has  always taken a keen interest in the  forwarding of mining enterprises in  Cariboo. Mr. Reid was also owner of  valuable property in Vancouver, being  an owner in the Vancouver Transfer  Co., thc big block on Pender, lately  built, a handsome residence on Melville  street and other valuable properties in  Vancouver.    ,  Mr. Reid became a member of the  Dominion house in 1881, winning a  bye-election as a Conservative candidate. He was re-elected in 1882 and in  1880. In 1888 ho was appointed a  senator, succeeding Hon. Hugh Nelson, who became lieutenant-governor  of the province.  Mr. Reid was married to Miss Clark  of Ottawa, during his early political  career, and leaves two sons, schoolboys  of 10 and 12.  * .*t*. JT.

Barclay Crilly came over from Camborne on Sunday night bringing with  him a gold brick worth over $2,000  which he expressed to Helena, Mont.  This is the result of the bi-monthly  clean up at the Oyster-Criterion property of the Great Northern Mines  Limited. Mr. Crilly says the ore body  is improving both in size and values.  The mill has now been in operation  about six months and during that  time hus only been shut down for five  hours. Another ten stamps will be  added in a short time. This can be  done at a very light cost as at the time  of installation it was provided for.���������  Trout Lake Topic.

Summer Train Service  During the summer months there  will be four transcontinental tiains in  and out of Vancouver daily. The  times of departure and arrival of C. P.  R. express trains as compared with  the service now prevailing, have been  materially altered.  Under the new time bill the fast Im-  [jerial Limited express will leave Vancouver on June 18, and the first from  Montreal will start out on .Tune 13.  Imperial Limited train No. 97, leaving  -Montreal at 9:40 p.m. on any stated  day,, will reach Vancouverat 10:40 a.  m." on the sixth day thereafter. Imperial Limited train No. 93, leaving  Vancouver on any stated*day at 5:30  p.m., will reach Montreal at 7 a.m. on  the sixth day thereafter. Transcontinental train No. 1, leaving Montreal-  at 9:10 a.m. will reach Vancouver at  7:15 p.m. on the fifth day thereafter,  and transcontinental passenger No. 2,  leaving Vancouver at 7 a.m. will arrive at Montreal at 0:30 p.m. on the  fifth day thereafter. The time between  Vancouver and Montreal where connection will be made for Seattle, is a  day less than the present time of  trains Nos. 1 and 2, and nearly equal  to the Imperial Limited time of last  year, which was furnished by a triweekly service.  Local passengers who are frequently  on the road will do well to note that  none of the trains will stop during  night runs at intermediate stations,  such being served during the daylight  by train following.

Traveling in the Air.  San Fka.ncisco, May 3.���������Dr. August  Gareth, accompanied by tin assistant,  started today in his airship on a trip  to San Jose, 50 miles south of this city.  The ascent was made from the grounds  in llth street, near Market, where the  ajrial craft lias been located for some  time. After reaching an elevation of  seveial hundred feet, Dr. Gareth, the  inventor, who acted as helmsman,  caused the airship to circle, and move  in various directions, demonstrating  that it was under control. He then  headed it soutli, almost directly against  the wind.and started on a bee line for  San Jose, at which city he hopes to  make 11 landing. The airship, obeying  the force of its light motor,;made good  progress and was soon out of sight.  Ten Thousand Thirsty Souls.  At the recent municipal election*  Toronto Junction voted in favor of  local option and Saturday was the last  day under the license law and many  were the interdicted individuals there.  The last day's business was a record-  breaker with the ho'cls in the factory-  town. Tt being election day in Toronto  and closed bars being the order of the'  day. a quota of about 10,000 thirsty  souls went out from the city seeking  the drinks which it wim reported were  to lie "given away" at tho Junction.  But it was not so. Such were the  crowds that filled the seven hotels  that places at the bars were at a premium. The streets wore crowded with  men in various st-- ges of intoxication.  The police of lli.tt town, aided by  "specials" had hard work to preserve  a very respectable imitation of order.  A number of arrests were made and  in one^instance to quell a disturbance.  Chief Royce had to give the crowd a  look at his revolver.  Lacrosse.  In anticipation of their match with  Kamloops, the team of the local  lacrosse club, arc practising diligently  and in order to eiithii.se the boys all  lovers of the game, whether players  or not, are cordially invited to attend  the practice games.

Faraday himself,  who  was  perhaps    the greatest    cxporimcnlor  tliat had over lived, was perhaps the"  first exponent of tho'-iiiiglo'- elemty.t  theory. - He noted the different qualities of substance wh.cn in fluid   nad  vapour state,  and wondered whether  there was not perhaps a stato as far  above the vapor as the vapor     was  nbour    the     fluid.   From Faraday's  timo there has bcon a growing'bo iof  on tho part of physicists that there  Was some ultimate common ;clement,  of which every subs-taiue was'a form.  As illustration of  this thc pro,e.-.sor  drew  attention  to  ozone-being  only  a' different molecular    fo.-malion     of  oxygon, to    the allotropits forms    of  sulphur,   and  tho similarity  botwoen  the halogen elements.  DIFFERENT RAYS.  Beforo dirc.tly coming to radioactivity Professor Mc-Lonnan roun'd  it necessary to explain two sorts of  rays, namely, thote of a Crook's  lube and tho Roentgen rays. 'When  a tube is nearly exhausted of air  and    a current of electricity is     al-  covory of radium was    ?mado/by    a | penetrating  powor   of the  rays  was  Fronih chemist, Bccquorcl, who had  noticed tliat tho peculiar tluoitiscoiKO  produced by Koontgen rays vvas produced when uranium oro flowed in  tlie dark; lly exporiinont he found  out that thc rays coming from this  particular compound had the power  of discharging an electroscope and  of lonuing a gas.  It is to Madamo Curio, a Polish  woman ~, that the nctut disco vary of  radium is duo. Following up Bcc-  querel's? experiments, she testo'd all  tho sals of uranium, and discovered  in tie ^vh^l'| that thoir dijcharging powor of tho  ' electroacope was exactly in proportion to the amount of uranium in  tho compound. Sho then tried nil  the other substances and found that  thorium was the only niotal that  acted in tho same way as uranium.  Sho then wont on to test thc mineral  compounds of uranium, and found  that     pitchblend gave eight      limes  also     shown.,   by making substanco3  glovv through a thickness of load.  RAYS  OF RADIUM.  Prof. Ruthoiford-; of McGill, has  discovered that there "-are throe kinds  of rays coming from radium. Some  aro deflected by a magnet, like cathode rays, to the right,Whilo others  are doflectod to tho left, but tho  latter is not so easily done, as tho  particles in this case aro comparatively heavy, being equal to two  atoms of hydrogen. Thoso do Hooted  to tho right are known as "Bota"  rays, and those to tho loft as "Alpha"  1 ays.  All motals possess radio-activity in  various amounts; while tho nir is  also charged with it, Prot. McLennan had experimented by exposing  wires to the air, and had found  1h"~!V charged with radio-activity.  Ono.'.dny,. after a heavy fall of saipw,  he noticed that the amount, of radio  activity.... in   tho  air   was   appreciably  ono-  as much  radio activity ns the quan  tity  in  compaiison with  othor com-  small,    having jsunk to  about  pounds  of uranium  would  tend      to   fifth  of tie average amount,  show.   It  was  this  that mado      her i    He afterwards  expei imonted  think that there must be some other  element present.  MINUTE QUANTITIES.  To locate this substance sho treated tho pitchblend wilh sulphuric  acid, 'dissolving out thc uranium  compounds. The remainder she -tieat-  ed with water, and by ropealod process r^i solved,, out. tho. batium compounds, - leaving utmost pure radium  chloride'' and*ra*dium' brdni'ide. To  show the extreme raicncss of l.ho  metal, this clever' .woman, from six  tons of pitchblend produced a fow  one-hundrodths of a grain of tho radium  compound.       - .->  Tho lecturer had a piece of radium  bromlV'e or exhibit; it wns not a  vory largo piece, only weighing oro  thirtyrthousandth  pari  of  a     gram  With  somo  of  tho  snow,  and   thoro  found  the missing radio-activity.

Lumber Clerk Sees tho End of tht  Brute's Chase.  Whilo travelling along the Ouitn-  cougan Lake in the Northern pino  country recently, Oscar Whilo a clerk  employed by a lumber firm, saw tho  method and thc end of a, murderous  doer hunt.  At right angles to the provision  road on wliieli he was travelling run  tho well beaten way along which tho  saw logs were drawn to thc riverside. Down this icy track camo  a beautiful deer, followed by a single  gaunt gray timber wolf.  Tho doer would bound along for a,  few score yards at on amazing rato  of speed, and then stop to listen and  look about, whereas tho tireless pursuer kept up trie samo steady jkico  in tho most confident and businesslike manner.  Whon about a quarter of a inilo  from the sido of tho lake the door  slackened his pace to a trot beforo  coining to a dead stoji. Tho crafty  wolf mado a tromendous spurt. Thc  door soomod neither to soo nor hear  its pursuer, owing perhaps to a winding of the road nnd to the fact that  thc wind was dead agninst it.  In an instant tho wolf seemed to  spring somo dozen feet or so through  tho nir and fasten upon tho door'a  think. A moment's gallant struggle  and tho door was drugged down and  its butcher was devouring its hind  quarters without waiting to destroy  its life.  White liad reached tho intersection  of tho roads just before this, and  rushed liis horses to the scene.: Ho  was without ftrcatms, but the wolf  sneaked off on ono side through tho  snow from the still breathing body  as the team approached. With a  blow of his axe Whilo put tho suffering creature out of its pain. Then  hc managed to drag tho carcass on  lo his sleigh.  The wolf, which was squatting, dog  fashion witiiia ten yards of him, lifted up its ugly muzzlo and set up a  tromendous howl as White did this,  but mado no attempt.to come to  close quarters with him. White, enraged at tho impudence of tho brute,  swung his axo around his head and  let it fly at thc wolf. His aim was  true, but tho wolf was wary and  dodged in time, although tho axo  hnndlo struck its hind log with sufficient force to send it away yelping.  After recovering his Weapon the  man wont on his way. Tho wolf  paused long enough to devour tho  blod covered snow where tho deer  had fallen and then made after tho  sleigh.whicli he followed, jogging  alonq; like' a coach dog. until the depot biiildinirs wero reached.

OF INTEREST TO TOTAL ABSTAINERS.  The death ratio in the Manufacturers Life"has always been favorable in both  sections, but exceedingly bo in the Abstainers' Section. The past year shows a  continuance of this favorable experience. The death losses in the General Section  were 75-7% of the expectancy, and in the Abstainers' Sectidn only 41.3% of the  expectancy. The saving this year from low mortality in this section is therefore  58.7% as against a saving of 24.370 m ^ie General Section, which means much  larger dividends for Abstainers.

P.  deal last year, pointed  nt;t that the people  of   Ontario, in an  indirect way, enjoyed   certain advantages  from   the  rates  in force on the  jLrowrtiment  road.     How   much moie  would this favored treatment be applied lo the  provinces  rrot now included  in ihe Intercolonial system, ii* tho government ivere'-to' build aiid  operated  line from  the  Atlantic to tho Pacific?  Trie Conservative party stand for (lie  iuimediate construction'of such a road.  They believe  that,;removed from, the  bnireful 'influence  oi-" politics, it  could  nut only he made to largely reduce.Hit*  freight rates now prevailing along I lie  line, but would be money irr tho pocket of the country.     The Liberal party  ij opposed   to  any scheme which will  prevent  the carrying out of'lhe contract with the G. T.-P.'.promoters.    If  such a change as tluit proposed by the  Conservative  party, were carried out  by the Liberal party, the Grand Trunk  Railway  Company would have   to lie  again  consulted, and  rather   than do  this,   the   government   is   willing   io  abandon,   for   a   century   at   least, a  policy so  promising to a reduction of  tbe   people's   burdens.      "On   to   tho  Pacific with  the-Intercolonial, and as  soon  as  possible." is the ruotto of the  Conservative party.  most decidedly.

A (horus of denials followed, for  nearly oil pre:er it were men of'substance and each convinced of 1 is own  integrity, though doubtful of that of  others.  The"-' curl     of this  and   many  such  conferences:-..was   that  Philip     found  himself  one line morning perched upon a. high' stocl   in  Mr.  Westley'sof-  i fice.     an  artitlod  dork.      Iio      camo  1 homo     at uig'.t, pale anil silent;     at  thrust a bottle into liis faco and  asked  him what le meant by that.  "Mean, sir ?" returned Philip, "I  suppose I meant it for cough mixture."  Alas ! it was a poisonous compound intended for outward use and  clcady marked for inward in Philip's  handwriting.  "you murderous young dog !"  shouted   tire   doctor.  "I'm not a dog," retorted Philip.  "I have uot. mado a beast of myself,'  he added  with  sarcasm.  "What do you mean ?" cried tho  doctor wilh a thick utterance  "I mean," cried Philip, suddenly  and pussionately, "that. 1 came hero  to study moJi ino, and not to bo  bullied and sworn at and rnado to  do  all  your  work."  "Take that," roared tiro doctor,  with ombol ishments, boxing his  ears, whereupon Philip seized him by  Hie collar and laid him flat on the  floor, in which position Dr. Maulo's  grown-up son entering, discovered  them.  "This is ,. nice marly behavior,  Randal," sni'd young Maulo, picking  up liis irate parent and placing him  in a chair; and after much'blustering  on the old man's part, and vain attempts at peace-making on the  son's. Philip found himself in t'*e  st:eet, witli tho information that his  indentures would have to be (ancell-  ed   and  ho  need   uot  return.  So ended Philip's second career.  "What's the good of a fellow liko  mo ?" he .thought, marching defiantly down tho street and whistllntt  savagely.  He finished thc evening with somo  fellows of his own age, not a very  steady set, and tried 'wilh loud  merriment,' jovial songs and deep  potations,  to  bury his chagrin.  It was late when he bent his wavering steps - homeward, - wondoing  why in the World the houses kept  knocking up against him, and who  was that vi'.lain continually pushing  him olT the pavement. To solve tho*������(j  problems, ho leant against -a  post, mournfully wailing:  "Why did my master sell mo  Upon my .wedding day ?"  him.     to    communicate   all to     his  father.  it wns a heavy blow to Matthew  and Martha, whoso fust thought was  to buy Philip out at onvo; but Matthew Meado was not a man to do  anything in a hurry. Ho considered  lho subje-.'t well first, , and finally  Mr. Ingleby's advice, coupled with  Philip's owrr earnest supplications'  and urgent reasonings, together with  Dr. Mntile's report upon tho lad's  capacities, induvod Mr. Meado to  yield a reluctant councilt to hi.s prodigal's remaining in tiio ranks. Mr.  Ingloby had taken an interest in tho  boy   for  years,   and   liis   verdict  was    ..-������  WINTER   FEED.

Meade's mind  with' beatific persislcncc, while Mr  Monde felt, il. would be a; grand thing  to hear Philip road tho burial set���������  vi"o over him and perhaps preach  his   funeral  sermon.  Philip's only, alternative proposition was thc army. Tho question  was seriously debated at a. Christmas gathering at Stillbrooko Mill  by a small knot of el iers grouped,  church-warden in hand, round the  firo in the common parlor whilo the  young people played games in tho  best  pnilor.  "Vou rimy depend upoiiiit, Meade,"  observed 'Cousin .fane, an uninvited  presence in tho smoking parliament,  "you'll hov to pay for bringing tho  boy up nbovo plain folk."  "I'vo paid already, ma'am, for  this year," replied Meade, "antl got  schoolmaster's receipt upon tho file."  Cousin .Jane's liusbiiii'd's mouth  went upwards nt this observation.

Green manuring with buckwheat,  Hungarian grass, and othor nonleg-  umindiis plants add .practically nothing to tho soil which was not thoro  beforo, except a nioss of ��������� vegetablo  matter which- decays and goes to  form  humus.  3. Green manuring with :. clovers  peas, beans, lupines, etc. (leguminous crops), actually enriches.the,soil  in nitrogen drawn from the air. Theso  plants can grow witli vory littlo soil  nitrogen. They store up. the "nitrogen  of the 'air as thoy (Jrow, and -when  plowed under givo it up to the. soil  and to future crops. It is tho rhcap-  esl means of manuring'.the''soil with  nitrogen.  ,���������1. Out animals, as woll. as plants,  require nitrogen for food. Hy fending tho crops of clover, cowpca, etc.,  only about "one-fourth' of the fertilizing materials of the.'crop:is lost if  the manure iii properly cared for As  the nitrogen of the air fs tho cheapest source oi,nitrogen for pjarrls, so  it is - tho- cheapest'source of protein  (nitrogen) for animals. The leguminous crop is best utilized when it Is  fed out on 'the farm and tire manure  saved and applied to tho soil. Tiio  greatest profit is thus secured arid  nearly the same fertility is initiii-  tainoct as in green manuring. -2,
