(Kc.iorl of It. II. r.eo, I'.L.S , .nude in 18D5)  "There is very little agricultural  land cm llu* Columbia River until within about five miles of thu mouth of  Canoe River, vvheie we enteied a  valley of about 12,000 acres of good  agricultural hind, about one-half of  which is bottom' land not,subject to  inundation, good clay soil snowing ten  to filtee'ii leet in depth at tin* ciitbnnks  which a giavelly sub-soil ; the letnxiu-  der lying on low benches fifty to  seventy-five l'eet above the liver.  These benches are also good clay land,  no rock or giavel showing on the  surface. The surface of both bottom  ancl bench land is very level and  unifoim; small cedar, spruce ar.d  balsa'm timber and considerable bush  in the bottoms; cedar, spi uce and  heifilock on the benches and mountains  ���������all small tunbei and of no commercial value. The vegetation indicates  considerable lainfall ihriuiglincit this  valley,'- and I do not think irrigation  will "be'iecjuiied ; but if so," there is  abundance ot water tor this pen pose  in the iii'i'ks flowing, thiough the  valley. I am informed by Ir.ippeis  'who have wintered here that the snow  is li om tin ee to tour leet in,'depth and  lhe timber anil bushes indicate, a con-  sideiablc* siiowlall. The altitude is  about I.SHO feet above sea level. The  geneial formation is gram le.    1  Fiom the inoiilh of Canoe Rivei to  Grews I..itmls, a distance of 22 miles in  a uorth-ivesteily comae, the. valley  n ill -aveiagt* about one-half mile in  width, vIt' has good clay soil, with a  gravelly sub-soil; small cedar and  -piuce "limber" and i orisieleuible bush.  The river is horn.-tOO to "1000 feet m  width.* .will, an ,-neiage cm-lent ot  about five miles per houi. The li.inLs  aie lioui 6to 15 ieet high, showing a  good clean clay.soil.  Ne.-u Grews Rapids the valley widens  out fiom one to' two miles wide ami  continues tho sime noi-th-wi".teily  course to'Tete^.laune .CiiiChe., on lh,-  Fuisci-River," It" tfas beeii.iuii over  with-fire* .indthe timber.and vbuslj iu'  the vValley.'.is well as upon the m".nm-  t'ains. aie a young grem'tuv^.Ffom  about Grews Rapids we left the 'ivci  bell and en lei ed.i cliier e cuintiy. We*  did ..not see moss upon the gi omul and  timber'is we clicl below and on the  Columbia Rivet. The soil .is a blue  clay, live to, fil'r ecu feet deep", w.lh a  gravelly sub-soil, covered in many  places with one to two-feet of black  vegetable muck ; sinnll cedar, cottonwood, spi uce and hazel hushes iu  patches and clumps; good meadows  Irom ten to two hundred acies scat-  teied thioughout the valley. The soil  and climate is very much eupeiioi' to  that nt the month of the river." The  snow and, rainfall is,also less. The  river is from 100 to -10U feet in width,  veiy - crookeel .tnd has an average  cm rent ot about two miles per hour ;  banks from six to fifteen teet high. I  am informed by JUessis. Blackmore  iind'Jackson, who spent the last two  wmteis in this valley,'that the snow  was not over fifteen inches deep at any  time,and the winteis veiy mild. The  timber, and,beaver cuttings indicate  a very, light snowfall. I did not see  anv< beaver cuttings over twelve^to  eighteen- inches above the ground >1  am'also' informed-that the spring  weather opens from a ' mouth'to six  weeks eat Iier heie than at the mouth  ot the river  with   this  ancl   frost   about the same  date.  We left, Trail Crossing on the morn-  in^ of September 2i)th. aruving at  Revelstoke ou the evening of September 27th.' We were 14*. days going up  from Revelstoke to the' mouth of  Canoe River* and Hi days from , the  mouth of Canoe River to* Trail Cioss-  ing.  I think the tiip could he made in 15  to 20 days at a favorable stage of the  river.  The Columbia River from Revelstoke  to the inciith of Canoe River could be  made navigable for steamboats :it  almost all stiiges nf the year. . Neithei  Canoe River nor Wood River is  navigable for steamei.s, but a wagon  mad could he built thiough the Canoe-  River valley veiy cheaply anil this  seems to me the most feasible way of  bringing lhis beautiful valley within  the reach of sectleis; or the trail up  the* Columbia River, which ends at  Smith Cieek. could be continued up to  the mouth ol' Canoe River, about 27  miles 'ind widened for a wagon load  if icquiii'd.  I would place the acreage of good  agricultural land as follows, viz:���������  ACRES.  At the Big Bend of the Oolum-  , bia River       12,000  On Canoe River, from S-.

Total.  73,000  FISH CREEK FREE GOLD.  The Mountains generally come down  with low toothills and benches and 'in  many places these benches along the  base of lhe mountains are good soil  and could be cultivated ; pood "feed for  stock in ��������� the, bottoms and benches.  Bear and cariboo are very plentiful  along the river, ,  We found numerous Indian camps  along the river, presumably left by  Crees, wbo may have come in from  the Northwest bv way of Jasper  House. At about 33 miles above  Giews Rapids (about 51 miles by ri vei J  the I iver takes a south-westerly couise  for about four miles to the foot of the  canyon, at the head of navigation lor  boats, but the valley continues the  same north-westerly course for about  20 miles to Tete Xinno. Cache on the  Eraser River and is from two to four  miles in width; first class soil, with  small cottonwood, willow, alder ancl  hazel bush ; also some small pines and  hemlock timber. The mountain!, on  each side are low. of a granite formation and come down with foothills and  benches. .    -_  Cianberry Lake coveis about   1500  acres  and is a shallow bodyofwatet  is situated about t wo   miles   noith   of  Trail Crossing; could be easily dcaiiied  and made into diy land.  If irrigation should be required  there is abundance of water for that  put pose in the creeks running through  the valley every few miles and the  water could be brought'upon the land  with verylittleexpense. Some of the  larger "reks come,out, of large valleys  The altitude is about 2,200 feet above  sea level.  I estimate the distance from Revelstoke. to Trail crossing at about 171  miles by water and about 130 miles hy  a waggon road route. At this point  the bushes andj.im her also indicate a  light snowfall and I am informed by  Mr. Joseph Null, nf South Thompson  -River, who was with a C. P. R. survey  party through this country as a  pucker in 1874-75. that they wintered  their stock here ana never had" over  eight to ten inches of snow. I think  the climate is very similar ro that  around Kamloops, judging from the  geneial appearance of the country.  Thc Ui at frost of this season occurred  on the night of September ISth and  pievious to this there bad been about  two weeks' _raiu. There was wet  weather at Kamloops corresponding  Big Veins of Free  Milling: Gold Quartz  of a High Grade in the Camp.  A. F. Rosenberger, of Nelson, who  was in tin* Fish Creek camp lecently  lold the Tiibimeth.ifc in his opinion  tbo distiict would be in a shot t time  one of the important mining sections  of the province. Daring his stay-he  visited the Imperial,\ Eva and Cholla  gioups, which aie now, being operated  bv the Imperial .Development. Syndicate .of that cily. Work is being  conducted on all the claims and they  .ue 'showing up well.. He brought  downVith him an excellent specimen  of ore which he took from No. 4 tuunei  on the Eva. The'uock, which is quailz,  contains large panicles of free* gold,  which are pj.tinly seen without .the  aid i>f,a glass. The vein in the tunnel is  25 feet wide, ancl is' piohahly one  ot the i idlest in" the gicmp. The  olher tunnels aie also being tun in  eue which has a good showing. On tbe  Imperial a tunnel is being run oil the  vein which is the full width of tbe  tliiftimd it is thought to be iinii-h  wider..

The ledge is large and shows  good value in lieegold. OntheCri-  tetion claim, which is of the same  gi oup." a good vein has also been found.  The pay stieak is about two feet wide  and shows very rich specimens of free  gold.'  On the opposite hill from Lexington  mountain aud adjoining the -Silver  Cup is a group of claims known as, the  Silver Dollar. The group is owned bv  Mr. M.igee nnd Joe Best of Comaplix,  who ,coiitempl*jte doing extensive  development .this .''year, ij The gioup  contains two' eight foot* ledges on  which a 100 loot tunnel has been  driven.. The paystreak is one foot  wide.and contaitis-high-^grade galena,-  \Vhich averages about S125 per ton,  picked samples running as high-as  jjTJoO. This is one of the most piomis-  ing silver lead propeities on Pool  creek. It adjoins the Beatrice gi oup  and may be expected to develop into h  good mine. The Beatiice is also a  good pi cperty.  MUNICIEA L      O WNERSHIP.  The prevailing tendency of the time  is    towards     the      government     oi  municipal   ownership    of   all    public  ficihties.   It is  becoming universally  Mt that the profits derived   fiom  tlie  use of gas,  watei.  elect! ic  linghting.  transportation of all kinds and eVery  cluss of  business,   which   supplies'    a  convenience   used   by everybody and  ne-eded     by   everybody,     should     be  diverted from the pockets of.private  owners   into the public levenue  and  used not to'enrich the few but to lower  fie lilies ihinged onsuch facilities for  the benefit of all.   This is  the guiding  principle of the day in dealing  wilh  tho  numerous   questions,    which are  C'Uitinunlly arising with regard to the  ownership of natural lesources. which  aie used by all  alike  arid   experience  has pinved that it is a principle which  woiksontin   print ice.      Instances   ol  cases    of    municipalities    making    n  fiiilmc   of   the   owneiship   of    water  works,   gas   works   or   electric   light  plants aie rare and in  every  case  aie  tiaceable to   outrageous   misuiiiuiige-  inent., The usual   results  are   almost  invariably agrnatimpiovenient in the  service, .coupled    with   'considerable  reduction of the rates.    'The   ollicials  are found to woik with the same vigor  m the interests of the   public  as  they  previously worked to put. a dividend in  tlie pocketsof the shareholders."    The  geneial lesult of putting this, p.inciple  into practice lias  been   fnnnct- highly  satisfactory.-     in - many    ' instances  suceeding tar beyond expectation.  The pioperty civvneis t>E Revelstoke  willhavean opportunity-ot deciding  next'Wednesday whether they' wish  to adopt this puncipleor.not. It is an  oppoitunity, which if allowed to slip,  is not-likely to return*. Theie are  considerations, which -just .at this  presentjuncture render^ the? shaie-  holders of Mhe, company, willing to  discuss a deal for the disposal of their,  plant,-which u'te not likely'to. be of  weight inuch'v longer," lt we do not  avail ouiselves of the cn.uice offeied  to us now, we'.are not'likely ever to  acquire the plant at theprice nowasked  font. It is a chance-of obtaining a  plant, which'will-,pay for itselt and at  the same time psy for the extension ot  the.water system for fife protection  pui poses, which we have got to get put  in this year. If we do not lake-this  opportunity of getting this, extension  without it costingtbe t.is'pnyeis a cent,  then we may as well begin, to figuiewit  once on a c onsiderabh* increase* . of  taxation hi order to pay for putting the  extension in.        , . -  ' * ��������� '-*  Piincc Mining: & Development Co.

The land lying below the  present tunnels lins been acquiieil in  oiiler to provide a suitable tunnel site  for future opeintions.  A linire amount of woik has heen  done on the company's piopeities. Tlie  development work done this winter  bus been eminently satisfactory. In  running No.. 3 ciosscut ��������� tunnel it  bccnuii' apparent that thu ledge was  one ol ininicuM. width, so iniic!*. so,  t'mt it was deemed advisable lo cut it  at an .angle to keep working moie  tow-aids a point below tin* bottom of  shaft, in* No. 2 tunnel. This, necessitate,! i mining very nearly parallel  vith the lead, but sr> as to gradually  rossi'UL it and while this of necessity  takes a longer time to get through the  ledge, yet the management deemed  that this wns more than counterbalanced by the depth obtained.

He was working with .six  men about three miles , this siele of  Golden, when a piece of rock-rami,  dovvn'the mountain side* and crashed  into the ,middle of'.the paity. who  were all woiking within a small area.  The flying missile,, which came1 from a,  considei able height, st i uck Mr. Alex.  McGiegor on the aim. bie-tkingit and  glancing down aciosshis legs. The  lookout man stationed above -lo  watch for falling -locks' saw the  one. which' stiuck Mr. McGiegor  descending and shouted to vvtiin  those below bnt his efToits to attract  their attention were m vain owing to  a high wind biowing at the time.  >  Where will you B,uy the Materials?  .

When Section oFnreman- Begoni  caught sight of thc* ponrlittle Terrenoir  boy last Tuesday morning he was  ciawh'ng along the track inthedirec  t ion taken by t he train, from which he  had fallen. Fiom the traces left by  his fall in the snow it whs easy .to see  that he had, c-iawled the length of  eleven telegraph posts and three rails,  when Mr. Begoni caught up with  him. When fiifat picked up he clung  to his rescuer's neck and it was not till  he complained that his legs were  hinting that Mr. Begoni . perceived  to his horror that both tile boy's feet  weie :ut off and hanging by a sinew or  two to his body. The poor little fellow,  he is only four and a half year's old,  told how he had fallen from fhe train.  He was quite collected and sensible in  his talk. Mr. Begonie .wrapped him  in his coat and carried him to the  shack and installed , him by the fire.  He was just starting out to get assistance, "the little chap assuring him  that he would be all right and would  not move, if left alone, when he saw  the train coming back and flagged it.

SHOT IN THE THIGH WHILE RESISTING ARREST,  THE ROYAL VISIT.  The. proposition that His Royal  Highness the. Duke o������ York should  not come further west than Ontario  is being received. with general disfavor. ' Manitoba, the Territories  and British Columbia are thc most  important portions of Canada and the  westerners will undoubtedly regard it  as a slight it" the Heir-apparent gives  them the go by. The west sent more  mer. to fight the battles of t.he Empire in South Africa than all the  other portions of Canada put together,  and the people of this portion of the  country look for some recognition on  the part of Royalty. Never in the  history of the great prairie country  Bas it been honored by a Ro3'nl visit  and it would be a courteous and  graceful act on the part of the Prince  ii he were to travel across-the continent on the great Imperial highway  that runs from ocean to ocean. The  westerners are the most loyal people  in the world and it will be too bad  if they are cheated of their chance to  signify their allegiance to Britain's  future King.  Out in the west v������-e see all too  little- of Uie great institutions of the  Empire which clothed in glorious  tradition of the past stirs up tho  homage and loyalty of British subjects al! the world over, and every  act that is taken to bring the people  in touch with them seems to quicken  the Imperial sentiment which we all  cherish  A  PESTIFEROUS M.

Captain Lambton, who commanded  the naval brigade which did so much  to save Ladysmith from falling into  the hands of the Boers, was the opposition candidate for parliamcntiry  honors in one of the northern constituencies during the recent general  elections in Britain. During the election campaign he vigorously attacked  the government. He was defeated.  The government, however, mindful of  .- services during the war and regardless of his political proclivities  had him appointed to the important  position of commander of the Royal  yacht. What an object lesson for  Canadian politicians as to magna-  minity and political Justice  The Manitoba government seem  in for a peck of troublp just now.  The prohibition act has been declared  ultra vires ancl the railroad deal is  likely to lead to more and more complications.  The House of Commons has adopted a resoiution declaring that penitentiary made binder twine should be  sold to farmers only, and at cost  price, up to July 1 of each year, says  the Montreal Gazette The complaint in the past was that it was sold  to farmers at double price-. Possibly,  too. this will he the state of affairs  in the future. The auditor general's  report shows that the ministers regularly disregard the law when they  -want to favor a friend, and they are  not likely to Day more attention to  a resolution than to an act of parliament  THE  INAUGURAL   BALL  The Police in the North Have Gathered  in a Thorough Scoundrel.  The long arm of tho law has for  the past six months been reaching  out for Francois Hamclin, bad man,  says tho Edmonton Bulletin, and on  Wednesday he came within its roach,  and tlie long arm gathered him up,  with a bullet in his thigh, and took  him into the fold.  The day of the bad man in the West  is almost over; he went when the  railroad and telegraph came, but even  yet an occasional evil doer whose  natural inclination to commit crimes  lias gradually driven him on and on  until circumstances mulco him desperate, will arise in the West and for a.  time make things hum the way thc  typical penny-dreadful desperado did.  Almighty Voice was a good sample;  Hamclin Is another, though he has  not succeeded in soaring to the  heights ot notoriety that his illustrious predecessor attained. Hamolin's  career, though fairly brief, has been  a lively and checkered one. He. commenced early by figuring before the  police Inspectors for minor offences.  About, three years ago. whilo confined In the barracks coop here, he  made his escape by cutting away one  end of a scantling and bending it  out till ho could squeeze himself  through. Then without arousing the  guard ho got away.  For several weeks he was at largo,  though dogged persistently by the  police. Prom camp to camp he' was  hunted until it was never safe for  him to sleep in the same place twice  or to ever make a return journey by  the same road ho went. At last in  the middle of the night a police rig  left the barracks, containing an.  ofiicer, a non-com., and three or four  men. Their destination was ��������� a log  shack back in the woods-- "off the  Stony Plain trail, on. the border of  the Indian reserve, where the outlaw  had been located. The. place 'was  surrounded and the police entered.  Though surprised Hamelin. put, up a  lively scrap until knocked'senseless by  the butt of a six-shooter. In durance  vile he then put in the balance of  his term. On the expiration of his  sentence he was released.  Not long after, a' frightened half-  breed woman arrived /-'at the. barracks to say that Hamelin had hammered his wife into .insensibility and  taken to the woods,- threatening dire  vengeance on anyone who informed  on him.  His brutal abuse of his wife had  become monotonous to the police and  it was decided to gather him iu.  Profiting by past experience. Hamclin  was wary. He kept, closely to the  woods. Another haifbreed in the employ of the police located him and  a plan was arranged for his capture.  Hamelin was inveigled into leaving  his retreat for a trip to Strathcona  for the purpose of engaging in a celebration dear to his heart. Unfortunately for him just as he got on  tho bridge he ran into Constable Holt  who was dressed in plain clothe. Then  followed" a lively five minutes. Hamelin had objections to being "taken"  and was not backward in showing  them. It was not until r.he handcuffs  were snapped on thac ho decided to  come.  For this Hamclin got IT mouths���������  12 for the assault of his wife.three for  resisting arrest and������two for carrying  concealed weapons, a loaded revolver  having been found ou him when  taken. After serving only a few-  months Hamelin escaped ' from the  guard house at the Fort. This was  on .luly 17th last. He got away by  cutting a hole in the flooring of the  cell and digging his way out under  the wall.  Since then ho has been at large  though every effort has boon made, to  locate and retake him. For soine  time it has been known that he was  in the vicinity of Onion lake, and  tlie detachment there, iu charge of  Sergean Hall, have been watching foi  him. Yesterday the news came over  the wire that he was taken, the  despatches giving the following parti-  culais:  "Onion Lake���������There was unusual  excitement caused by the -wounding  and arrest of the haifbreed. Hamelin,  last night. This mau escaped from  the guard room at Fort Saskatchewan  last fall, and during the " winter  reached' Frag lake, about 30 miles  -from-hcre,^where-he-took_up.hiSjresi-_|  dence in a thick bush, with a squaw  and an Indian, eluding the police.  Yesterday he suspected tho Indian  was acting suspiciously ancl threatened to kill him ancl the squaw, both  of whom immediately fled from the  place. Hamelin followed' them. The  police soon heard of his movements  ancl started after him. They" met him  leaving an Indian house. ' He at once  made for a bluff and drew a knife.  Hhe police ordered him to stop, which  he refused to do, and they fired several shots after him hoping to scare  him,  but  without avail.  Just as he was entering- the bluff a  bullet was put into his thigh.  It is said Hamelin fully Intended  killing the squaw and Indian and  taking their horses, and was going  north. Up to the present the doctor  hai not boon able to iind -.ho bui!<jt,  but says the wound Is not at all serious.   o   UNSPEAKABLE  HORROJl  A  White   House Function���������A    Blaze  of  Splendor���������One  of    the    Most  Brilliant Affairs Ever Held on the  Continent.  A Washington correspndent of the  Spokesman-Review  gives  the  following account of tho   ball at the White  House  on   the    occasion  of    tho  inauguration of tho president:  The culminating event of tho  inaugural festivities was thc Inaugural ball, held on the night of March  thc 4th, in the vast auditorium of  the pension oflice, attended by men  and women distinguished in every  walk ot life, touching olbows, dancing  and mingling with the plain American citizens.  As a spectacular event It was unparalleled in the history of inaugural  balls, in the suniptuousness of arrangement, in bewildering splendor of  decorations and ot marvelous electrical effects, and in the countless  throng taking part In tho spectacle.  When tho doors of the great structure were thrown open at 8 o'clock an  eager crowd besieged every entrance,  and lines of carriages stretched into  the surrounding streets and avenues.  Platoons ot uniformed officers, mounted and unmounted, guarded tho entrance, keeping back the rush of  curious spectators, and bringing order  out ot tho tangle ot carriages.  Through the long arched entrance,  Kung with bunting and vines, pnssod  the merry, pleasure seeking throng,  the women in luxurious gowns, with  tho flash of jewels in their hair and  at their throats. Soon the vast Interior of the building began to take  on life and animation, and the early  comers busied themselves in viewing  the exquisite beauties of the scene.  The United States .marine band  ancl an orchestra of "over 100 pieces  were stationed at one end of tho hall,  and for an hour before the arrival of  tlie presidential party played patriotic  airs. '   ,-' ,  The" presidential party arrived at  10:15 o'clock. They were preceded  by a glittering array of officers in full  uniform and were escorted to the private office of Commissioner Evans,  which had been lavishly decorated.  The president bowed and smiled as  he passed through the throng. Senator and Mrs. Hanna, Lieutenant  General and Mrs. Miles and several  justices of the supreme ��������� court of the  United States, with their wives, joined the party upstairs. ��������� , . .  ' The.crowds on/the main floor had  been pushed back to make room for  the grand march' and the hand was  ready to break' into the opening  strains of the march from "Tana-  hauser." But word came that Mrs".  McKinley was 'indisposed ancl that  the president would remain by her  side. Tho march consequently was  abandoned.  The band struck up Strauss' "Blue  Danube" waltz and the first regret  of the assemblage at missing tho president and the first lady of the land  gave way before the whirl cf gayety  on the ballroom floor. Vice President  and Mrs. Roosevelt arrived about the  time the president came in. After  paying their respects to the president  and holding au informal levee amid  the group of governors, officers, senators, and officials: the vice-president  and his wife proceeded to the ballroom floor.  Now the scene was at its height.  Under the golden canopy of the dazzling filigree of lights moved the  shifting throngs���������women in exquisite toilettes, dowagers and matrons  in rare old laces, buds and debutantes in dainty Paris creations. With  them war ollicials representing every  branch of public life; grave supreme  court justices, governois of states  suri'ouuded by their brilliantly i.ni-  formed staffs and aides, amtossadors  and ministers in gold luce and decorations, the highest ranking officers of  the army, navy and marine rarps,  senators and representatives, officers  of Troop A. the presidents crack  organization, in uniforms cf Austrian hussars. As the orchestra and band  alternated, this ever moving throng  joined iu promenade and dance, making a vast kaleidoscopic picture.  Mrs. McKinley wore a most beauti-  fuln white satin gown, made for the  occasion. Like all the gowns for Mrs.  McKinley il is high .a "-**e neck auu  lonir in the sleeves. The- skirt, which  is made with an immense train, was  trimmed with two broad ruffles of  point lace. The bodice., has a deep  color of point lace ir. the back which,  crossing the shoulders. e-*:tf-ru.s down  the' front on either si-ie. forming a  revei'e:inl(rie'necf,"-bpen:ti:ij--'-o������--a^-,-''5st  of Dilated  chiffon, overlaid   with  ..nc.  same embroidery of penr! and  i-nine-  lones beautifying the skirt.

Probably the most perfect spotting  system achieved  by any private corporation Is that of    one of    the big  eastern  railroads, which  Is   to  somo  extent modeled on tho secret service  system of some of the European governments,  though    by np    means so  complex, says S.  N. Adams In AinB-  lee's Magazine.     So far reaching and  so  direct,  however,   are  its   lines   of  communication that the president of  the organization is. himself kept constantly informed' of the trend of affairs, and the changes of    sentiment  among the employees of every division  and sub-division of the whole railway  system, and that without the knowledge of  any  other  persons   but   his  own special corps of clerks and secretaries.     Nobody but.himself-'knows  the.entire personel of   the wonderful  service, that he has perfected.      His  agents are drawn from every branch  of the road's operating staff! They are  engineers, freight   brakemen. passen-i  ger trainmen, conductors/ signalmen,  yardmen, station agents,/track walkers and-even division officials. Should  that road  have a strike���������and strikes  are far less likely to occur than they  were  before the present system   wa3  put into operation���������the president will  have detailed warnings of it from all  tiie   storm  centres  long    beforo    the  first  mutterings   find   cautious   utterance  in  the  newspapers.      Whilo    it  also acts as a  defence a_r.\inst thefts  by employees, this system is intended  primarily to prepare,  so to  speak, a  diary of    the    disposition,  character  working    efficiency    and    sentiments  toward the road of the men who constitute the vast human machinery of  the  corporation.      The feeling which  culminates in a general strike is not  tho result of one act alone, but a slow  growth made  up of many grievances,  real or imaginary.     To keep track of  tho   shifting  mental   attitude  ot     his  employees is the aim of thin railroad  president.      If   a   certain     divisional  superintendent has made himself unpopular with  his subordinates,  information   to   that     effect    comes     "by  underground   wire"     to; the   -central  office, and the matter is taken under  advisement.      If  the   heweot  fireman  on  the road attempts to stir up  discontent by inflamalory talk his views  soon  reach the    official    ear.      Every  leading  spirit  in   the  employees'   organization is known to the president,  who also knows,  whether  in case of  trouble,   the  man  is-to  be   reckoned  upon  as a conservative or  a radical.  Sometimes this  works out  the man's  career  in  a manner  quite - incomprehensible  to him.   For .instance,  Night  Watchman Brown is shifted,  without  cause  that he  can  fathom,  from  one  division to another.      How should he  know that rumors of trouble in that  division have reached the nresidential  ear, and lhat he himself, being down  in  the  president's  little    book    as  a  speaker of weight and a counselor of  conservative     methods,     has      been  shifted   over  to   act  as    unconscious  agent  in   checking  a   dangerous   ten  dency?'������������������*���������"���������! ��������� ������������������- - -- -���������  Some of the admiring co-workeis  of the head of this system declare  that In two minutes' reference to his  collected funds of information he can  An Awful    Experience���������Tho,  Woman  '   Lay Dead With  a  Rose  on .Her.

"No; no help;  no hope."  "She said sho would make all the  arrangements .for the double suicide.  I tried to dissuade her, but in vain.  She kissed me good night, and. said:  'Go to work tomorrow and keep cool.'  I was miserable.  "At noon I called. She led up to  the front room, and said. 'This is  where we are going to die.' I said:  'Why should we die?' and she answered: 'Because lt Is better so.'  I returned later, and asked her to go  to the . theatre. Sho answered:  'Ernest I will nover leave theso rooms  alive.' I went wit and bought something to eat and n red rose. She  said. 'Havo you come to stay?' I  said: 'Yes.' and she kissed mo. I  told her It was hard for mo to dio.  'Why must I go?'

She  said: 'Are you ready?' and I responded: /"Yes." Then she saturated a  handkerchief with chloroform and  poured out morphine pills containing  24 grains and took them, handing mo  the vial to tako the rest, and I did  so.

It was shown that Mrs.  Maynard kept six dogs in the honsie,  and often when she was on a spree  left them unfed for days and they  became ravenous. On the day of  her death she was particularly drunk,  and it is supposed the dogs in desperation attacked her. At any rate tho  jury rendered tho verdict that "Mary  Maynard died from nei_yous shock or  Tear, caused by bites of dogs while in  a state of intoxication." Two of the  jurors dissented from this verdict and  asked the, police ta Investigate the  cause.

He Robbed a Woman aud- Then-Tried  to' Cremate Her���������Blood Hounds  on His-Tracl:.    :.  A despatch from Atlanta.- Georgia,  says:  Mrs. C. A. Buchanan, wife of a well  known jeweler living in the heart of  a prominent resident section of the  city. and within two blocks of the  governor's mansion, was tho victim  today of an outrage which has caused  much excitement in Atlanta. Her  condition tonight is critical. ��������� Mrs.  Buchanan was compelled at the  point of a'pistol by a negro, who  stealthy entered the house while she  was alone, to give him her purse containing S5. The negro then commanded Airs.' Buchanan to - cook  breakfast for him, and while she was  engaged in this he stood with his pistol constantly pointed at her. After  the food had "been placed on the table  the negro seized Mrs.-'Buchanan and  bound her to a bedstead. . He then  ate his breakfast.  When he had" finished he gathered  some paper, and placing it under Mrs.  Buchanan set fire to'it. The lady  kicked the fire away, but the negro  threateningly told her not to do so  again and replaced the paper, which  was now blazing vigorously, under  his victim. The negro then quickly  ran from the room, and,' jumping  ���������through a rear window, escaped.  Mrs. Buchanan again kicked the  burning mass from , ner, and .by severely wrenching her wrists managed  to free herself. She ran to the' front  door of the house and by her screams  attracted several persons who assisted  her in extinguishing the flamss  before they had obtained much headway. Mrs. Buchanan told what had  happened and almost immediately collapsed into a- state of extreme nervousness and was unable to tell anything further than give n brief description, of her assailant.  The entire detective force, witii the  assistance of police and bloodhounds,  are looking for the negro. Three  negroes are already, under - arrest as  suspects.' About noon 'Mrs. Buchanan  -relapsecU-lnto.^a-icomatose^state---and-  has been unable even to recognize  her  friends  around her bedside.  Thc 'assault on Mrs. Buchanan is  tho latest of a series of crimes in the  past few clays In which negroes have  robbed and ��������� assaulted white women  and escaped.  or S^NAdA  !!<>ai! Oflice.

There's a world  of wisdom in that familiar proverb, and  a sound application of it to disease,  especially to such familiar forms of disease as coughs and colds.

Diller of Carrollton.was  early today taken from the county  jail at Springfield and brought to  Carrollton on a special Chicago and  Alton train. Within- an hour after  arrival Senkle had pleaded guilty,  been given an indeterminate sentence  by Judge Owen Thompson, and was  on his way to the penitentiary at  Chester.   .     .   ��������� ������, ��������� _     ���������  Apparently nearly the whole population of tiie' town ,was gathered  around the. depot and' , along the  streets,leading to'the court honsp. but  the troops " formed ��������� a "cordon - aronud  the train as soon as it stopped,' and  surrounded Senkle, when' tho In Her  heavily shackled * and accomp.uiit.;! j  by Sheriff Conlee, alighted from tiie  train, prevented any hosiilo demonstration,  if  any had been planned.  The prisonoi", with anppr-ir.t unconcern, puffed a cisaretto as the column  began the march down thf street  leading.from ths station to the court  house, about three quarters of a mile  distant. The .prisoner was marciied  into court by the troops, under command of Colonel Reece, which then  withdrew and surrounded the'building. None but court attaches, a  squad of militia and newspaper correspondents were allowed in the  court rco:u and .the proceedings bore  all the aspects of a military trial.  The warrant charging Senkle with  criminal assault on little Grace Diller  was read and the prisoner asked what  plea he would1'make.  "I plead guilty" said Senkle.  "The judgment on your plea, is that  you will be confined in the peniten-  tary at Chester, there to remain until  you are discharged in the "due process of the law." said Judge Thompson.  The court arose, and without a word  the condemned prisoner extended his  hands for the shackle's. A "moment  later the military formed a "guard  around the sheriff, and his .prisoner  and marched down the street to the  station. Within five minutes after  their arrival the train departed for  Chester.  At Godfrey 20 members of the engineer corps at Springfield took charge  of Senkle.

Exemption  Ottawa, March 7.���������In the house  today Sir Wilfrid Laurier introduced  a bill to restrict the importation of  aliens. He snid the leading feature of  the amendment which is proposed by  this bill 'concerns tho 3rd section  of the present act, which provides for  a violation of this act a JI000 fine, no  more and no less: The object of the  amendment i6 to the effect that the  penalty ho not more than $1000 and  not less than $50, giving the judge  discretion to apply the penalty according to the offence. Then It is  stated that the penalty is to be recovered only by the consent of the  attorney general. It is proposed to  modify this section and to provide  that the penalty should be recovered  with the consent either of the attorney general of the province or of the  judge"- from any court in which the  penalty is sued for.  The 2nd section of the amendment  concerns section 5 of the act. Section  5 provides that a settler that is to  say, an intending settler, may bring  with him a relative or personal friend.  It has been found in practice that this  term "personal friend" is too elastic  for practical purposes, find that it  may be made an occasion for evading  th.e law. Therefore it is proposed to  strike out the words "p'erron'al friend"  . The 6th section of the. present act  provides that if there has been a  violation of the .act the , party who  has/been introduced, into the country  illegally.'Shall be sent back at the'expense "of the person previously-contracting for the services."  It is proposed to strike out these  words and substitute in lieu thereof: "At the expense of the person,  partnership, company or corpoation  violating any of the ' provisions of  section 1 of this act."  -.Then it is propossd to repeal section  S of the act altogether, - and to substitute therefor the following:  That it shall-be deemed a violation  of. this act for any person, partner-  ship.compauy or corporation to assist  or encourage the importation or im-.  migration of any alien or foreigner  who resided in or is a citizen of' any  foreign country to which this. act  shall apply by promise of employment, through advertisements printed  or published in such foreign country,  and any such alien or foreigner, coming to this country in consequence of  such ah advertisemet shall be treated  as coming under a contract 'as contemplated by this act, and the penalty by this act imposed shall be  applicable in such a case.  The last amendment has heen inserted at the suggestion of the labor  organizations who have strongly  pressed for its adoption. The bill  was read a first time.  The debate was then resumed on  Mr.. Bennett's resolution regarding  transportation.  Several members spoke, but nothing new was. elicited. When everybody had spoken who desired to do  so Mr. Bennett withdrew his motion.  Mr. Richardson, of Lisgar. moved  the second reading of his bill respecting the land grant of the Canadian  ���������pacific railway. The object of the  bill is to declare that thc period of  20 years for which C. P. R. lands were  exempted from taxation .expired on  the 15th of last month -.  Sir Wilfrid Laurier refused to entertain the proposition. He said the  ���������question at issue was from what date  the 20 years' exemption ran under the  contract.. If the people of ,the North  W:est^wished_--for^judicial_interEj'eta-  tion the government would be willing  to secure it,.but that was as far as  he could go. _.

"Gordon's Leap" has again uaen  "negotiated,". this timo by a professional horse trainer, who performed  the remarkable "eat m the presence  of thousands of spectators, the Cincinnati Enquirer says. Gordon's Lsan  is in Australia and got itsnamc from  a daring piece of horsemanship on  the part of Adam Lindsay Gordon.the  Australian poet," now deaeS. Gordon  was really- the flrst and foremost ot  Australian poets, and was just beginning to get a world wido reputation when he died  The "leap" is over a three-railod  fence four feet four inches high, and  on ' the other., side of the fnece is a  rocky platform so small that- the  horse must stop in- one stride afte.'  landing or he and his rider will be  plunged "over a precipice 250 feet high,  ft is on "the shores of the Blue lake,  'at Mount'Gambia, in South Australia.  It is a remarkalbe leap, and one well  calculated to try thc skill and nerve  of the horseman and the intelligence  and training of the horse.* Any one  of_these_failing_thc_result_would_be_  fatal. Gordon, ��������� who was a daring  rider, made the leap several years  ago, and the place haa ever since  been known by his name. It was  not supopsed that any one would dp  found foolhardy enough to repeat th������  performance of the poet, but such a  one has appeared. - The fame of the  leap spread throughout all Australia,  and when In that island continent r������-  markeable feats of horsemanship aro  spokch of the stories always wind up  with some reference to "Gordon's  Leap." '   =  This reputation so worked unon "L.  A. Skuthorp, of New South Wales, a  professional horse trainer, that he determined to try to'emulate Gordon's  daring. He made public announcement that he would attempt tho leap,  and people came from all parte ot  the country to see him do It. The  people assembled to the number of  sevral thousand, nnd Skuthorp at the  appointed time made his appearance,  riding a hunter named Wallace, an  excellently trained horse, well known  to that part of thc country. Skuthorp had a run of 24 feet on a tone*  adamized road to the three rail f<*nce.  There is a gutter on' the take-off sldo.  On the other. Bide there is a SDace ol  10 feet. Below lies the lake. 250 feet  down.  Wallace and his rider took the fence  in fine style, and the horse stopped in  a stride after landing. ' There was  great excitement among the cowd of  people when .Skuthorp took the leap,  and most of the spectators expected  to horse and rider go over the precipice into the lake. But there was  not the slightest mistake on the part  of either horse or rider, and Skuthorp has earned a share in the honor  of Gordon's leap. ���������  _  Now that the leap has bsen negotiated successfully twice, it is feared  that people not as well qualified to  attempt the feat as Gordon and Skuthorp wll try It with disastrous results. In Australia almost everybody-  rides, but few people ride well enough  or have horses of sufficient intelligence and training to make Gordon's  leap.

This singular valley or wide trough  has been described :is one. of llu; most  i-iiiiiai-kalile topographical features in  North Ainei'ica. That, part, of it.  drained by the Canoe river and its  further extension iicu-lli to Tele Jnune  Cm-he is described as varying in  width from two to four miles wilh  general features very similar to those  prevailing in the famous fanning and  cattle raising districts of the fertile  valley of the Siiskatchciwan. The  report of Mr. Lee, which wi; Inive re-  pioduced in nnnllii-T column of this  i-sue gives the. best, account, which  lias so far been obtained, of the possibilities of this district as a farming and  rani-liing country. A recent visitor  lo the Fraser river vallev. whicli runs  parallel with the Cantie. River valley,  separated only by ii narrow divide,  described lhe valley lotlu* lIl-.HAr.n as  a beautiful and valuable ilisti-ict.  "Tiie valley is froiii'Iive lu ten miles  wide ancl e.\tends as far us the eye  can reach. It is a grass country.

It seems to bu  beyond tloubt that in this section,  extending from (he niiiiit.li of the.  Canoe river to Tete Jaime Cache and  beyond from the western slope of the  Rockies to the eastei n escarpment of  the great plateau ot Cariboo, there  exisls a'ccinntry exceedingly favorably  fitted by climate, soil and natural  resources for settlement and at the  same time within easy reach of an  immediate market, in the mining  i-uiips of Kootenay. ' The most  northerly point, of this district lies  south of the Edmonton fanning  country from which Kootenay is now  drawing such a large proportion of its  supplies, while in climate and natural  features the two districts, as has he-  tore been noticed, greatly resemble  enc-li cither.  But the resources of the Canoe river  district are bv no means confined to  fanning and ranching possibilities.  Forinost aiming the big things in the  long list of Biitish Columbia's mineral  resources are the gteiit mica, deposits  met with in tlie. Tele Jaime Cache  range,- wliich borders the Eraser river  valley a few miles north east of Canoe  river. In lhis range of mountains  veins of mica, showing,*i thickness of  from -10 to SO feet are Uaccable on the  surface lor several miles, the number  has been leported to the Heiiald as  fifteen. The leads are regular and well  defined, with a strike from southeast  to northwest, dipping to the west.  The mica is ot the vaiiety known as  Muscovite or white mien and is transparent, tough and flexible. Blocks of  crystal have been obtained from one  vein averaging in weight from -_o tn  "00 lbs, 12in. thick at the butt end,  giving a surface face in Ihe rough  averaging liom 4 in. by 0 in. to 22m.  by .'vt in. and have sijuared clear,  inercliant'iliie crystals from 2 in. by  ," in. to 20 in. by ill) in. These crystals  have been tested in both the electrical  works it: Seattle. Wash.,,and Montreal  Cunada, against the India mica and  the best mica produced in the United  States, with- the results that, the  British Columbi mica stands a much  higher percentage of electrical volts  than any mica now on the markets of  the world today. These are the facta  about these, wonderful deposits as  related by John F. Smith of Kamloops, some two years ago in the  Mining Record. The principal owners  of these mica claims are Mr. S. Winter  of Moncton, N. B. and Dr. Weldon il.  P. for Albert County, wbu both visited  the deposits last year and superintended what work was possible to be  done  _nii_de_i__l.be circumstances. .- Thev and  their associates are extremely desirous  of developing these valual>le .deposits  and while in Revelstoke tliey said that  if steamboat communication was  established between this point and  Laporte. they would put a second boat  on the river above Death Rapids  themselves, so :i.i to secure transportation for their mica from Canoe  river to Revelstoke. There is every  likeliliood therefore that, the coming  season will witness a big development  of lhis wonderful wealth of mica in  the Tete Jaime Cue lie section, giving  employment to a large number of  men nnd starting one of the most  important mining industries of the  piivinc*.  But there is substantial n.ason for  believing that Ihese mica deposits,  wonderful and valuable, as they are.  by no means exhaust the mineral  promise of the Canoe river section.  The liirui'ition along the valley maintains the same general features to he  found in the: country south of it. lt  lias been uotiouil that it .-tiongly  lesemliles in character the Ro*.-land  and Trail rn-ck camp. . lieie ate lo  be  ...To the Public...
