The Funeral of Engineer Randall and Fireman Potruff at  at Kamloops on Monday���������  Further   Particulars   of   the  "Accident.  An extra caboose was al (ached lo a  freight which pulled out west eaily  Monday morning and helped In convey  some thirty railwayineii and employees of the C. P. R. shops, together  wilh six mrtiihei'S of lhe band, lo  Kamloops to attend the funerals of  Engineer Randall and Fireman Pot-  rulf, the victims of the Lytton disaster  of Friday last, which took place at  Kamloops that afternoon.  The Inland Sentinel of yesterday  gives the following account of the  burial service;  Out of respect for the dead a public  half holiday was proclaimed liy the  Mayor and from the hours of one lo  four all stores iu the city were  closed.  At 1.30 p. iu. the funeral procession  started from the residence of the late  A. Randall, headed by the Independent Band, who were assisted by a few  members of the Revelstoke Band and  to the strains of the sad but beautiful  Dead March in Saul, were followed by  members from the different oiders,  which were all exceptionally well  renresented, and included the B. L. E.,  B." L. F., I. O.. O. F.. Knights of  ���������[Pythias. L. O. L,, Masonic Lodge,  ''Typographical Uniou No. 2(11, B. R. T.  of A., and prominent C. P.-R. ollicials.  Altogether theie must have been iii  the neighborhood of -RIO mourners,  quite the largest funeral ever held iu  Kamloops.  Preceding the hearses was the  carriage with the clergymen, while  on either side were tlie following  gentlemen who acted as' pall bearers  for Engineer Randall : Jas. Vair,  repiesenting the I. O. 0. F.: E. S.  Wood, A. F. and A". M.; W. Evausai d  E. Hosker.'B. L. E.;A. G. Taylor, L.  O. L., and Geo. Brown, B. L. F.

Church St.  whero the.Rev.J. A. Wood had read  the funeral service over the remains  of Fireman -Potruft', for whom the  following - gentlemen 'acted as pall  bearers: J. J. Hunter, F. Crick, and  XV. R. Hume, forthe'B. L. F., and J.  McCruni, .7. L. Brown and A. F.  Lauder, for thc K. of P.  The procession then wended its way  lo the cemetery, where the last sad  rites wore performed, and all lhat was  earthly of the two unfortunate men  was laid away'fcr the  last  long sleep.  l-"URTIll_K PARTICULARS  DV Till*.    '  ACCIDKXT  Brakeman Rumball had a marvellous  escape ftom the engine of the unlucky  freight, which crashed into the rock  slide at Nicotnen bluffs last Friday  mort.iii'g.  Directly the train struck, the engineer ami fireman, who carry lheir  I.ves in their hands, and have their  wits about them, shouted, "Jump!"  ' Brakeman Rumball' had already  decided upon' taking such a' course,  andas-the-woids-ieft���������the-lips-of--hi3  comrades was head first through the  window. Even then he was none too  soon. The heavy locomotive dropped  below him, and he alighted upon the  embankment, and slid about 30 feel  down before a ledge offered a foothold.  Ile escaped wilh but lorn clothes and  a scratch ou lhu nose.  It was extremely fortunate that the  express was not the train to pais lhat  portion of lhe track instead of the  freight, although hud it done so it is  thought that the brilliant electric  searchlight now carried by the pa--  8 ngi'i'liains would have enabled the  engineer to hive seen the obstacle in  front.  The lirst orders were for the freig'. t  lo stop at Lytton and allow No. 1 ���������<���������  pass, but owing to the fact *of i'ii iving made good t.ime to lliat poll t  it was about half an hour nhe.i,*.  Accordingly ilsetoutto make Keefir-.  the next station we.it, and crashed  into the rock&lide.  The express came along shortly  after, and was flagged by the surviving  members of thc crew of thc unlucky  freight.  The locomotive which left the track  brought up about 130 feet below on  the side of the river. The bodies'of  the engineer and fireman were found  without dillcully. the former on a  lodge somewhat higher, and lhat of  the latter beneath the engine, the  heavy mathine having apparently in  its last roll gone cm top of him.  The train was going west, wilh thc  Fraser river on its right, the engineer  had no show to save himself at all.  The spot where the accidint took  place is one of the difficult sections of  the line, and is specially patrolled  owing tn the liability to slides. Where  the engine went over, there is a vary  steep incline to the liver, the hank  being composed of loose rock and dirt,  Tin* engine mi uek the slide in the  dark nf I be night, and apparently  plunged straight over ihe bank, the  driver and fireman being killed almost  iiiiine.linii-ly. When lheir bodies  were recnvcivd later in the day, those  whose duly it was to perform the sad  lark expel ienced the ulinost difficulty  in getting down the b.mk to the scene  where llie wreck lav.

Rcvelstokf,  B.C. _   "  The Three Bylaws for the Central Fire Hall Project Lost  in the Fray At a Special  Meeting Called Last Monday.  ���������Other News of Interest  The council met on Monday night  pursuant to a call from the Mayor to  consider the  I'KTITIONS  asking the council to pass bylaws to  raise the sum of $0,000 for lhe purchase  of block o2 ($2,000), electa central liie  hall ($3,000) and purchase lire equipment ($1,000).  Present the Mayor, Aid. McCarty,  Bourne, Abrahamson, Nultle and  Taylor.  Aid. Bourne thought that, such important matters should be left to a full  meeting of the council."  The Mayor thought that as long ns  there was a quorum their proceedings  were legal.  Aid. Bourne asked what fire  equipment wa������r intended lo be purchased with the thousand dollars.  The Mayor said the ilem covered  the re-inslall'ilion of the lire alarm  system.  , Aid. Bourne asked when lhe petitions before the council had been  referred to the bylaw committee. He  was a member of the committee but  had never s?en them.  Aid. Abrahamson said he could not  get the committee together, lie and  thr Mayor had been present in the  coun'cil chamber to discuss the bylaw  but no one else turned np.  BYLAWS  ; Moved Aid. Abrahamson. seconded  Aid. Nettle that Aid. Abrahanison  have leave to introduce a bylaw for  the purpose of raising $1,000 for fire  equipment.  Aid. Nettle said that he seconded  the bylaw more to get the -thing  discussed thivii anything else. He  thought it absurd to further test the  feelings of the ratepayers on this  bylaw or any oilier, but he wool 1 like  cue,!! alderman to state where he stood.  > [Aid. Bourne, asked the chairman-of  ih epFi reT WiYtef sip*' Ligh l" com mi tt ee  what fiesh equipment wiis needed for  the lire halls. ���������'  Aid. Mi Curly said he thought, it was  a washbasin, a Lowel'and some soap.  II<! wus of lhe same opinion as Aid.  Nellie. Ul* thought it" was unwise  for   the   pre.-ent   council   lo    borrow  money for the incoming council to  spend.  The motion wa.s put and lost. Aid.  Abraliainsnii and Nettle, yeas. Aid.  McCarty. T.iylor and-Biiurne, nays.  Moved Aid. Bourne, seconded Aid.  Nettle that* A Id.'Abrahamson do now  have leave to htyroduce u bylaw for lhe  purpose of borrowing $3,000 for thc  erection of a cential fire hall.  Aid. Nei tie said he agreed that a  central lire hall was a necessity but  where thu centie was was another matter. Geographically fireball No, 2 was  not in the centre of the cily but  financially and numerically it was.  Next year lhey would have to face the  necessity of erecting a new school-  house, il I he government did* not put  up lhe money. Their credit might  be so eiilon inlo that they would not  be able lo borrow* to furnish their own  water and electric light.  Aid. Abrahamson said ono half of  the city was entirely without fire  protection. . If the central fire hall  was not huill, one would have to be  put up at the other end of the town.  He did not see that tliere was any  way out of spending money over it.  The motion was carried.  The third and last motion was that  Aid. Abrahamson have leave to introduce a, bylaw to borrow $2000 to  purchase block 52 from A. S. Farwell.  Moved Aid. Abrahamson, seconded  Aid. Nettle.  Aid. Nettle asked would Mr. Far-  well's back taxes, if there were any,  come out of the $2000. -.  The Mayor said the question of .Mr.  Far well's taxes on other parts of his  estate was independent altogether of  the purchase of block 52. Mt. Far-  well's taxes could be collected the  same as any othei' ratepayer's  Aid. Abrahamson .-said that villa lot  30 was included in the option for one  year of the purchase of block 52. The  $2000 was very reasonable for thi.s  block.  *Ald. Bourne thought the idea in  purchasing the block-was to make a  central park. Otherwise he would  not have been in favor of. entering  into the agreement for the'option on  it. The. block was too large for civit  requirements. A 50 foot lot would  suffice for a fire hall. In his opinion  Mr. Kill-well had ,got very much the  best of the bargain and' the city had  got something they did not want.  The Mayor saidthat he, and Aid.  Taylor and Bourne had .met Mr.  Sproafc'in.-Aid.-Taylor's-, office and  reported'to' the"~cotmcil"'oii ��������� this' very  subject.  Tlie;motion was lost, Aid; Abraham-  sou and Nettle. yeas, Aid. Taylor,  Bourne and McCarty navs.  Tho bylaw to borrow $3000 for the  purpose of electing a central five hall  was then introduced and lost on the  first reading  The council then adjourned. c  e>SXsXS������������SXS-S3S������<^^  GET YOUR MONEY'S WORTH  For money's worth  this waist dis-  counls _ anything, -you .or  we _hayc .  ever heard of in Ladies' Silk Waists  ���������a brand new, up-to-date Silk  Watst, which for fit, finish' and  workmanship, is simply unapproachable and the equal of any  waist at $6.50 ever offered in B.

Wednesday, Dkckmbkh 11, 1901.;  WANTED-A MINING  DEPARTMENT  As the New Denver Ledge rises to  remark the, monthly 'bulletins issued  by the Ontario government assay  office at Belleville are an example to  our department of mines of what  might be done to materially benefit  the mining industry in this province.  The Herald reproduced from the  columns of the Ledge the October  bulletin containing much interesting  information on platinum. We have  further written to the Ontario Bureau  of Mines asking to be placed on their  mailing list for the bulletin, so that  we can give our readers the benefit of  any further reporta of the tame nature,  which may be issued from time to  time and also asking for the more  detailed information about platinum,  which the article promises to those  inquiring for it. We fully recognize  the fact that we have not the least  right to do this and have apologized to  the Ontario Bureau of Mines for our  temerity in so doing. We live in  hopes that our own department of  mines will wake up some day and  relievo us from being under such obligations to another province.  Considered as the department which  is in charge of the most important  industry in this province, the British  Columbia department of mines is  probably the most useless institution  of the kind, outside of the British war  office, at present in existence on the  face of the habitable globe. " Its  annual report is almost entiroly  compiled by the gold commissioners  and mining recorder!, throughout the  province, who are officials as a rule  without any personal knowledge of  mining matters beyond what is  necessarily absorbed by any individual  of average intellectual capacity living  in the midst of a mining community.  Their reports are made up very often  partly from heaasay and pnrtlj-  froin written reports on their  own properties furnished by the  managers or owners. They are of no  more value than the ordinary newspaper report on such matters and have  -the���������further-disadvantage��������� of���������baing-  fi-om six to eight mouths' out of date  by the time tliey appear. These  contributions to ancient history, some  statistics and the annual black eye  given by the government's mineral-  ogical expert to the particular section  which had the misfortune to receive a  visit from him during the previous  year, make up the annual and only  report ever issued by the department  from one year's end to the other.  ThefgovernmentH of other mining  countries. Australia, New Zealand.  Ontario, are not content to act  merely as registrars and chroniclers of  what their miners and prospectors  have done in the past. They put  themselves at the head instead of the  tail of the procession. They instruct,  direct, systeinize the energy of their  mining men. There nre a dozen or  more minerals in active demand in  the markets of the world, some known  to exist In this province, while it 'ih  quite probable that the others do so uh  well, which are entirely neglected  simply for the lack of intelligent  direction of the labors of British Columbia miners and prospectors. If the  department does not know hew to go  about thc business they can easily send  a. mnn to Toronto nnd Balleville to  find out. Or they can take one good  leaf out of Mr. Martin's book and  borrow a live up to date, practice)  man from the Ontario department  and make bim deputy minister of  mines and let him run the show,  leaving tbe nominal minister free  play at politics and the olhcr\litt'e  games, said to be in vogue in the  soothing aliiiospheru of Victoria.  It would be a capital idea to get such  aman and locale him. in-a second  edition of tbe Belleville assay oflice  placed right in Kootenay. where he  could keep in touch all lhe time wilh  the needs aud requirements of our  mining men anil the mining industry.  Tliere is of t nurse a provincial government assay oflice in Victoiia. It is a  fine institution for the Victoria  business houses, who want to get their  share of Yukon gold but it might as  wvll be in Timbuctoo for all the use it  is to us in ICootenay. XVe should  have one right here, where it will do  most good.  It is time we people in Kootenay  and Vale and Cariboo iiiMsted upon  the government recognizing the importance of lhc mining industry of ihe  province. The politicians have their  railway policies, their redistribution  policies, lheir Chinese policies and  they stand us oil' with a line of gull"  alfont doing everything to further lhe  development of lhe mineral resources  of the province and we swallow it.  The members for the mining dislricls  should leave these tinpot political  squabbles to people who have nothing  better to do ami unite in insisting Hist,  last and all the lime on thc recognition  by the government of the importance  of the mining industry and ou the  reorganization of the mining department on a practical basis of wideawake etlicietic'3'. Then: aro a dozen  ways in whicli a real, live, np to dale  department could help to advertise  our mineral resources, keep our miners  and prospectors posted and guide the  energy of the mining pr palatiou at  their disposal inlo the most profitable  channels.

And the  members for the. mining districts  should not let up fill Ibis is accomplished.  NOTE AND COMMENT.  There was once a famous place of  entertainment in London known as  Sangster's Theatre. The show provided  there was a kind of mixture of stage  and circus. There was a play to  begin with, followed by feats of  horsemanship, Dick l\upin'acts and  so on in the arena. Connected with  the establishment was a ringmaster,  who had a groat contempt for the  play acting end of the business and  who on one occasion when the play  was of unusually protracted duration  bawled out to the performers to "cut  the cackle and get on to the 'orses."  Bi__ Bend mining men are .wondering  when the Mail is going "lo cut the  cackle" and get on to the long promised mining report on that section.  In a letter from New Zealand  published in the Trackmen's Advocate  for December the curious fact is noted  that in spite of the advanced labor  legislation of that province, there is  not a paper or journal published in  New Zealand devoted to the interest  of labor only. Even the papers, which  support the present government often  criticize very strongly the advanced  labor legislation. The lalwring men,  with whom the Advocate's correspondent talked, seemed lo take no  interest in the question of advanced  legislation. They simply said "We  vote for Dick Seddon ftlie present  .premieri:.heJo_oks_af_t_y_j)iir_j7i_t__r___sl.___  8 IS IN THE HEART OF  THE GREAT FREE  GOLD  CAMP  1 ON   FISH   RIVER.

The  people of New Zealand are apparently  gliding along an easy grade of labor  legislation to something very closely  resembling the .socialistic community  of thc advanced novels. The,Jal>oriiig'  men of Anncrica.'ind.CanadaTieed not  imagine that any such primrose path  lies before them to the same goal.  Any working man, imbued moro or  Ies-* with socialistic ideas, is badly  mistaken who fancies lhat. all he has  got to do is to do his work and draw  his wages and put his money into a  house and lot or push it across the  bar i_h the on*-** mav be and then  hankey p.inkey, hey presto pass, al) of  a. sudden he will wake up one fine  morning and see in the papers th.it  the socialistic era has dawned.

It goes on to  say: '  '���������It will lie-within the recollection of  our readers lhat we published some  time ago in these columns a full account of. what is now known as the  ICendrew alVair. Driver McKenzie, nf  Uiteuhago, was in charge of the north  hound train on April Kith. On reaching Kendrew Siding he received  information that the Boers had possession of the Ktat ion and the line ah pad.  With splendid courage he re-started  his engine and made a dash for it. As  thu train passed over a. culvert it wa.s  received with a hail of lmllets. One  struck Mr. McKenzie on the hand,  and 'another smashed his watch to  splinters. The     train     eventually  reached Graall'lU'int in safety. He  could do no work for eleven weeks  owing to his wound. It was felt that  liis valour should no*., go unit-cognized,  and a bonus of .CIO was awarded him  over and above his ordinary pay.  Nor wus this all. Mr. McKenzie liuu  been mado the recipient of a heavy  silvor watch and chain. The former  hears the following inscription :  'Presented hy the Cape Government  to Driver AV. McKenzie for his  courageous conduct. at Kendrew.  April Kjth. 11)01, whereby the up train  iind passengers 'were saved from falling into the hands of the enemy.'
