The steamer Islander, thu finest and  best appointed passenger vessel oti the  North Pacific Coast, entered" upon the  northern service from Vancouver on  May 2'Jth. Since the pur.h <sb of the  C. P.

The machinists' strike, which has  Ixjen impending for some months, has  eau-ied a considerable movement  among American machinists, several  of whom have struck 'Revelstoke "and  obtained employment in the C. P.', R.  shops hare. The railway shops are  busy all over just now and the first  comers have foundno trouble in get  ting tv.irk. " *"��������� " ~-  The C.P.R. station at Slocan Junction took fire at 8 o'clock Friday  morning, and everything including the  i oinpany's books was consumed in  the flames. The fire originated by  iht* CIMt. telegraph wire: coining in  inula* t with the Bonnington Falls  ..vires. The ticket agent, J. G. CJark,  received an electric shock and has not  Recovered from it yet.' though' he is  able to be around.* ' .  , A C. P. R. section- crew,, at"; Col'ton-  dale, about flve miles*, west of Shields  on the Columbia & Western division,  had some doubts as to who was purloining the eatables. They kept  watch on the culprit, which turned  out to be a bear'of large size, and  killed it Alonday of last week. Bruin  weighed in the neighborhood of 450  pounds. Bears are frequently seen in,  the vicinity of Dog tunnel.  _ A letter from D. Stamper states that  he has been sent out by the grand president to help organize tbe track me 1  on the Maine Central and Boston principal roads. -He has been working  Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire and  part of Quebec.

The C.P.R. station at Sp- n.-es Bridge  was burned last week. The origin* of  the fire is not known. The agent, Mr.  Maxwell left the station to attend tn  the delivery of fit irht in the freight  shed which is some distance from ihr  station, and on his return found his  oflice in flumes. Before leaving he  had plat* d a sum of money, about $100.  in a drawer in his desk tint the lire  had gained such headway that' he  could not enter to save it. All liool t  and p ipers were destroyed as well - a������<  everything else in the building. ���������" The  building was very old and of little  value. Spences Bridge, as the point of  departure for Nicola and Similkameen,  although a small place, does ennsidir  ablo business. The company w 1  build another station as soon as possible.  The Movement is Universal but  A Large Number of Shops  Have Already Made the Required Concessions.  The general strike of Iho employes  in the machinery nnd thu allied metal  trades throughout the country to enforce a nine-hour day wilh nn increase  of wages to meet the reduction in the  amount of wages, tank effect on Ainu  day.  R-ports-wori* received on Monday  hy President O'Connell of the National  Association of AlaehinisLs and other  ollicials, indicating thai a large number of establishments heretofore holding out against the demands of Lhe men  were making the necessary eonces-  ions. Mr. O'Connell said the reports  so f.u received were of a very ei.com*  aging nature. . Alore than 3,000 out of  12,000 machinests in the New York  district are on stiike, Many of the  employers in New York have agreed  to the workmen's request for a nine-  hour day  ,lu Jersey City the only men on  stiike are about forty employed in Lhe  small repair shops of the Central  railway of New Jersey.  About 00 per cent, of the machinists  employed    in   Boston    struck.     The  number of men involved is placed at  about 1,500. Shops employing aliout  050 men have granted the'new scale.  * Reports from Scranton, Newark,  ���������Seneca Falls, Cincinnati, Hartford,  Philadelphia, Cleveland, Detroit and  Milwaukee indicate that. Lhe machin-  i-ts' strike for nine hours is general.  'A special Victoiia wire to the' Province says: Troubles over the repairs  to the stea'm'er Oleiiogle which were  unable to be finished at Morans' in  Seattle, owing to the strike, are likely  to be continued here, although tlie  Vessel was towed heie on Saturday  under contract for completion by the  Albion Iron works. Thesame'day lhe  vessel wn9 towed over," agitators from  the Sound came also and 'urged the  local men_to refuse"to touch the-vessel  as a scab job.  "Alanager Seabrook of the Albion  Iron works had a long conference with  the men on Saturday night and offered to'pay them the same wages as was  demanded in Seal lie, namely $3.50 pei  day of eight hours, thus advancing the  pay and reducing the hours at the  same time.  Alust of the men are union men.  however, and "although believing  themselves justified to go on with the  w.o'rk refuse to do so until the order  to lift the boycott is given by the International union authorities.  A Mud    S^ie   and   its   Fatal  - Results���������Horrible Death of  .,- Brakeman Barney.  ��������� The Macleod Gazette of tho 17th,  says: Last week a very serious accident occurred on 'the Crow's .Nest Ry.  at.Elki.river._������.A_heavy__..freightiti'ain-  pulled by one of the big consolidated  engines now running on the road, ran  into a mud slide, and as a result went  into the Elk river, which at that point  4s about four feet' deep. The engine  turned a little more than on its side,  and"**is lying with. its fireman's side  down. The tank turned sideways behind the engine, and one box car was  carried forward until part of it rested  on.the boiler. It seems that the mud  slide carried out rthe track with it,  pointing it to the river.  ���������' Brakeman Barney was on the en-  gine_C94 when the accident occurred.  AVith these big engines the boiler runs  well back into the cab, and the brake-  man was sitting between it and the  side of the engine. When the engine  went over, he was caught, and pinned  underneath and instantly killed. At  last'account, which The .Gazette" received yesterday, the body of Brake-  man Barney had not yet been recovered, only his head and one hand be.'ng  visible. '   _    ^  Engineer "Wardman was at th  lever of the G!H when the smash came.  Fortunately for him, his side was on  top, so that he was thrown onto the  boiler.'instead of underneath. -When  the engine settled down, be broke the  window on his side of the cab and got  put. lt was a close shave but he was  not seriously injured. The fireman  whose name we have been unable to  ascertain, says the last he remembers  he was holding onto the coal gate on  the tender. When the "tender was  thrown sideways, he was thrown clear  of everything into the 'Elk river, and  swam out, not being very much the  worse for it.  /. Conductor O'Hagan was  in charge  of the train.  Brakeman Barney was a son of  Engineer Barney, who is running on  the Crow's NestRy. To him and the  family and friends of the deceased,  The Gazette extends its sincere sympathy.  The Quarantine.  Exaggerated reports, have heen  spiead outside with regard to the outbreak of small pox heie, for which  there is no foundation. The clisent-e is  well under control.. A quarantine  camp has been established well out of  town in whiih suspects will be detained until pionouiiced out of danger.  The city itself has no new cases and  there is no quarantine on travellers  entering or leaving.  Trip to Tete Jaune Cache  Cl. B. N.igle, Tom Edwards and J.  XV. Jackson returned on Friday evening' from an "exploring" expedition  which took them as funis Tete Jamie  Cache. They made the trip by boat  for the most of the way. Mr.Nagle  considers that tho Canoe river might  be made navigable for a small steamer  for quite a distance, if the big log jam  about 40 miles from lhe mouth was  removed, but there are" some pretty  sh'irp turns in tho stream." Thu fiats  about the mouth of Canoe river are  good rich land suitable for agriculture.  The timber is good up as far as Glacier  creek, but above that is small and  scrubby and much bin nt' over. There  are signs of settlement in two or three  places up the river and horses wintered out and came out fat. At Tele  Jaune Cache is an Indian, settlement.  Air. N.igle was informed that Evans of  Golden, intended to bring in machinery to work what seemed to be a free  milling proposition ou Goat creek this  year. The party were away nearly a  month, since April 22nd and made a'  i ecord ti ip for time. * ''  Suspension of the Work Only  Temporary and Operations  Will Start This Week.  Manager Molson Transferred.  The Hkrald regrets to announce  that Revelstoke is about to lose Mr. J.  D. Molson. manager of th'/Molsons  Bank here, who will leave at once for  Montreal to open a bram-h'of the bank  in one of the suburbs. Mr.'Molson his  been a lesidentpf.Revelstoke-since the  hank was opened heie in '09 and he  and Mrs Molson have been identified  with the life ofthe place ever since.  Air. Molson has been sidesman and  churchwarden "of S^. Peter's-chuich  and his" departure', will" be greatly  regretted by the congiegation. However, it is possible' that Montreal as-a  place of residence has ppintjrin fits  taviir "as coiiipai-ed-'tvith-rRevelssnke  and while the-HKRALD is'sorry to see  Air. -Molson go, we congratulate him  at the same time oh his transfer to the  centre of Canadian things commercial  and hope that it will lie a step to "still  fuilhei- 'advancement. - Air. Molson  will be succeeded as manager by Mr.  AIcT3elh. accountant of the Winnipeg  branch, who will take over here before  Air. Alolson leaves.  Thn Nelson and Ilossland papers  received lieie oii Sal unlay evening  brought llio very unsatisfactory intelligence that work nu the Lai denu  branch, which had jusL been let lo  Lai son, Welch Si Stewart had been  suspended by a telegram received  from Montreal' liy J. (J. Snllii-.in,  district construction engineer for the  Pacific division. Various were llio  lonjeclmes indulged in as lo Ihe  reason for the sudden clviuge o[ plans  on the pint of the C. P. It. head olflce.  It Uu ns o,ut however that tlie suspension is only temporary. Tho Rossland Aliner of Sunday says :  '���������The C. P. It. will build" lhe Lardeau  railroad. This statement is made on  he strength of a telegram received  from Lhe head ollice of the construction  depiut ment at Montreal by Mr. John  G. Sullivan, district crnsti-ucliun  engineer for the Pacific division. Mr.  Sullivan was in the city vest ei day  again and divulged the factth.it lie  had heard from the head, oflice as  above. The hitch in the proceedings  arose out of a misunderstanding with  regard to the contract. Air. P. Welch,  the well-known contractor, "supposed  that he had obtained lhe contract and  visited the scene of operations, going  so far as to sublet a considerable portion of the work to Porter Bi others &  Carlson. Someone bad blundered,  however, and pending an arrangement  the work w.is shutdown. Air. Sullivan  amis unable Lo state when Ihe 'matter  would be arranged, but ventured the  opinion lhat three or four days would  be occupied in settling the contract  question. He believes lhat hy the end  of this week construction will be  under way. '  " The C. P. R. will utilize eight miles  of the grade const.ucted (wo years  ago, This section*exlends.friiiii Lardo  to'the. junction, of., the.' Liirdeau.-aiul  Duncan'.liveis.

ORDER RAILWAY  CONDUCTORS  *The-Question--of a-Federation^-of-  . Trainmen Discussed.  Formany hours on last Wednesday  the delegates to the O.R.C. convention  at St. Paul discussed in an almosr,  heated manner the question as lo  whether or not "a federaliou of nil  train men should be formed. By the  term federation is meant the joining  in one organization of all the trainmen  throughout the country, no mailer  whether they are switchmen, engineers or conductors. _      . .  The objection made by a number of  delegates, present at the conductors'  convention was to the elFect that if  such ai lion wns Uken in the case of a  strike being declared it was ot serious  import.  The argument was adduced that  under such conditions it was possible  for two-thirds of the organization to  declare a strike for the benefit of a  certain class - of trainmen, when  possibly the other branches of the  order were.notin sympathy with such  a movement:.  Card of Thanks.  The brethren of Gold Range Lodge,  Knights of Pythias,-, at their regular  meeting on "Wednesday evening last,  iuianip.ou_.ly passed tlie following  resolution: That the thanks of this  lodge lie extended to the ladies and  gentlemen���������not forgetting the little  folks���������of Revelstoke and Kamloops  for the kind services rendered on the  occasion of the complimentary supper  and concert to the Grand Lodge  officers and delegates on Tuesday-  evening the Mth inst.. all of which  wis gratefully appreciated: and that  this resolution be entered in " the  minutes of the lodge and inserted in  the local newspapers.

OP. OCAS',  Kdit.jr.  Al KX. LUCAS,  Travelling Agent.  Wednesday. May 22ml. "���������*>!.  TIIE PASSING SHO'*'.  The    news   published    in    another  roluniii that thc Dominion government  ha= decided to iiuthovize a bounty  on  lead refined in Canada from Canadian  mined and smelted ore  will   be hailed  with   gratification   by everyone intei-  esied in the silvei-'.ead mining industry  in   Kootenay.    It  is  thf first piece of  rvidenie to  hand tlmt the Dominion  authoiities- recognize    the   immense  importance of   the oil vei-lead deposits*,  ofthe district.   There is nothing like  them in any mining country on  earth.  But from one cause and  another,  the  low price of silver, ilitliciilties of transportation, the recent di up in lead,  tin  vagaries of our provincial legislators-,  and  last  but   not least   lhe ciii&hing  blow   administered   by    the    smelter  trust, silver-lead mining in  Kootenay  is  expiring  of inanition.   It  is   time  that   something  should   be'"tfc'ine  to  revive it  and   although tlie  IlEitAM)  regards this bounty on lead as merely  a   cabinet  expedient to   avoid   really  grappling with   the   issue,  which can  only  be done by establishing government owned smelters and refineries in  the dUtiict, still it is   something  and  the   people  at Ottawa can  haidly be  blamed for not seeing any further into  the   matter  than   the  delegation   of  Kootenay    mining    men    did   themselves.  How about that hospit-il ?  We have  got  our  building   appropriation   and  maintenance grant from lhe provin-  i ial government.   The question of the  site i*. -is good as set tle.U   Now  what  are  we   waiting   for?   Our  esteemed  coiiteinpnriiry has assured  the public  ih.it    the   association   nre   "working  along   quietly.     Xi>   doubt   I hen   the  ���������subscription   list has   been hugely,   if  quietly, increased and the directors of  tho association have everything right  lo   hand   to   begin   the   work  on the  building, as soon as ever they can  get  a title to the site.    If however things  hnve not   yet reached  this  desitable  stage and, we must confess, we do not  think   they   have,   then   the Hkiialp  would   suggest less  quiet   and   more  energy.  An excellent beginning would  be a meeting ofthe association and the  appointment, or a good   active  sec-re*  l ary,     without   which    adjunct    no  hospital project can hope to become a  Micress.     When   appointed   his   Hi-st  work should be to put the  finances  of  the scheme on a satisfactory footing so  that as soon as ever the site question  is settled there need be no unnecessary  delay in getting to work on  the building.    This  hospital   business made   s*.  good   start.     It   is   a   pity   that   the  public interest in   it has   been let d.e  out ami will now have to be revived.

St. Ijouis from  a business trip through the East, when  ���������liowu a dispatch stating that the  order is interested in the establishment  of an organization similar to this old  railway union on the Pacific coast,  said:  "The Order of,Railway Telegraphers  is never officially or otherwise connected with such ji movement. It is*  true that some of our local officers in  San Francisco were connected with  the movement, and they were, removed  from oflice by me a few days ago on  that account.  "The. plan of organizing allemployes  into one organization is not feasible,  and it is my belief that it  never will be. The old class organizations which are now in existence  and have been for years have accomplished n g.ie.itdeal of good fur Ihe  railway employes, and there is no  reason why thev should not continue'  to do so.
