He disappeared and when nost  seen was lying across the rails, teirihly  mutiluted und death was no doubt  instantaneous. The body was taken  to Macleod where a coroner's inquest  was held and the jury returned the  following verdict:���������"That death was  purely accidental and that no blame  can be attached to either railway company or to employes."  Seattle Capital Interested in an  Hydraulic Proposition to Win  Gold and Platinum on Slate  Creek.  The report of R. YV. Brock on the  Boundary Creek district comprised in  tho Summary of the Geological Survey  Dept., jusfc to hand contains tho  following valuable pointer on platinum  prospecting: "The recent increase in  the u^e   of  platinum   has   created   a  t    ' O ���������*  strong demand for this tnct-al and it is  now as valuable as gold. Tts principal  source is in alluvial sands, where it  occurs with garnet," magnetite, gold  and olher heavy minerals. As sand  it is sometime-- very fine and of a  brown or*Ieiul color. Treated with  nitric acid it shows a white color. It  has been found in the Similkameen  district and is known lo occur at many  "points iii tlie Western States. Wheh  found in place it has heen principally  confined to serpentine and when found  in sands it is usually in the neighborhood ' of serpentine. Consequently  strcams drainiiig.maases of serpentine  in particular should ho"prn<.pectP'aw for  platinum." A recent report in the  Vancouver World on tiie platinum  deposits of the Sinijlkq.ii.een says:  Platinum in thoSimilk.imeenconntry  has long been mined and more of that  very precious metal has been taken out  of the district named than any other  part of tbe province. Chinamen have  heen making a living oif tlie platinum  found iu the placer "deposits of the  Tulanieen river, and also on Granite  Creek for llie past fifteen years, but as  yet, no work has been performed on an  extensive scale.  Nov.-, however, a company lias been  foimcd to develop the claims 0:1 which  platinum is to he foundiind will pursue  the work in systematic manner. This  in tiio Slate Creek Hydraulic Co., and  Seattle capital has been interested to  wear down the hanks of Slate Creek  over 1111"aiea of 320 acres. Slate Creek  is just over, the divide of tiie -Similkameen i'i ver" nn "the Washington side,  but it is pioposed to carry' the  operations into the British Columbia  territory."  '"Some day will bo discovered . tlie  simice of the great platinum deposits  in these livei.s" said the manager of  the company, *.' who is a local man,  "and tlie successful  man  will  have a  greater source of wealth than a  Standard Oil magnate."  The projectors of the company are  very sanguine and if their operations  are at all successful, it will mean a rush  to the Similkamecn In mine platinum.  Refined platinum is of greater value  today than refined gold, and the fact  that the creeks in this district have all  along been productive will lead to  many more taking up Uio work.  The value in gravel from hundreds  of assays made hy the Klato Creek  Hydraulic Co. shows two-thirds in gold  find une-lhiid in coarse platinum, with  some nuggets as large om the nail ol'Uio  little finger of a man's hand. The  gravel runs 25 cents a yard iu platinum  and gold, and it is helievei. that somo  where in that 320 acres the old bed of  the creek will he crossed and extremely  rich platinum gravel will he found.  - All tho big handlers of platinum in  America, including Wliile k Co., the  dental firm of Philadelphia, who  di-posc of 91,000,000 worth of metal  annually, have had representatives  through the district in an endeavor to  locate platinum claims, hut all in vain.  Uightat the head of Slate Creek is a  lead of magnetic ironcontainiiigtraces  of platinum. At Princeton an ore  hody containing silver, copper and  gold, also carries platinum, it is said,  in paying quantities, but is very  refractory.  ' "Twenty years ago the Chinese  panning gold on Granite Creek threw  the dull little pellets of p'atinum away  calling them''whitego'd." Tlie trading  firm of Cook & Co., heard of this and  bought the white go'd from the  Mongolians at about 50 cents an ounce.  In Uiosp days it was sent to Victoria in  litt'e sacks and disposed of al, from .$3  lo $ J por ounce.- The Chinamen now  know it is as valuable as the yellow  met.il and thousands of dollais worth  a year aie sent to New York from the  Similkamecn.  , There is considerab'e serpentine in  the formation of the Big Bend district  and it is known that platinum is found  iii placer form in the grave's of the  upper Columbia and its tributaries. A  sharp lookout will no doubt be kept by  Big Bond prospectors tliis sen-sou for  indications of this valuable mineral.  Plans are now heing disc ussed bv  lhc C.P.R.for extensive impiovements  at the C. P. R. shops'in .Winnipeg.  S'Uiie time ago m rangfini'ii's were  ������ell under way for iiupi*n\ mii-til** at  (hitshops, but these fell thiough. Now  the_necessity of enlargement is even  mete pressing than it wa.s then. The  shops are overt urtyded and woik  cannot be "turned out" with"ihe"rapidity  (hat it should, owing to the cramped  condition there for room. The stall: of  men employed under Master Mech inic  -MacKinnon is larger than it ever has  been and more men would be laken on  if there was more room al the shops.  If the piesent plans are can ied out,  the space taken up by the present  shops will he about doubled and the  expenditure on tho work will run to  about $50,000.  AT GOLDFIELDS  Installing the Electric Plant' on  The Camborne Group at Gold-  fields.-���������To be Ready by June  ist.  H. '/,. Brock, managing director of  tlie. Northwestern Development Syndi  cate, i.s up at Goldfields engaged in  installing a cnmplete electric power  plant. Three carloads of machinery  ha.'e been taken to Comaplix hy  steamer from Kobson and from there  it will be taken up to the proposed  site near Goldfields by packing the  .smaller sections and skidding the  larger ones. The power plant will be  first used to operate ten machine drills  with which development and exploratory work is to be vigorously pushed.  Ib is expected that the pknt will he in  working order by June 1, when mining  operations proper will bo commenced.  At present the force of men engaged  on the property is erecting building?.  At the power site the snow is all gone  although there is a large quantity on  the claims where the tunnelling-will  be commenced. Plans' are also being  prepared for a ten" stamp mill to be  erected on the property when development has progressed further. The  power for the plant will be derived  from Menhemiick creuk, which passes  close to the property.'       .   .  LATEST NEWS  BY TELEGRAPH  Molybdenum.  The report of the Geological Survey  Dept. just issued has tlie following  remarks on molybdenite: * "The  demand for molyhdeiiiteat good prices  still keeps up. so that with the discovery of workable and accessible deposits  a new industry could be inaugurated.

GIANTS  The Approaching: Struggle  for "  ��������� the Canadian Transcontinent-  ; al Traffic between the C.P.R.  and Vanderbilt Syndicate. '  MoxTiiiSAi.. April 18���������The coming  struggle between the Canadian Pacific  company and the Vanderbnilt ''syndicate of which Dr. Sewaid Webb i*������  the visible head, in the matter of thn  Canadian railway undertakings which  have been acquited during the past  two months, is being ihuch discussed,  not only in railway .circles but by  financial men wbo aie interested iu  great concerns whicli are dependent  upon-the raiiways'to^bring'thair^pfo^  duco to the market.  ; There is now no manner of doubt  that the Vanderhilts mean to run railways through the.whole'of Cauada  with a.* line'of. fast ocean stenmers  from Loiiisburg to one of ths .British  Atlantic poits, and thus secure.'if they  can, the bulk of-.the'summer and  wiiiter>trafHic of iho Dominion. -,  The smaller lines of railways, which '  in some cases, look even like a duplication of facilities���������such, for instance,  us the control of the Great Northern  of Canada, which runt, eastward to ,  Quebec on the north side of tha St.  Lawrence, while the syndicate already  hold full possession of its parallel in  Ihe shape .of the South Shore���������aie  meant to he used- as feeders to  strengthen, the inn in trunk line���������iu  shoi t, to gather traflic from all parts  where traflic is already in existence or  likely to spring up ;n the future.  How the Canadian Pacific will be  affected and how they will be drawn  into au irreslihle struggle has been  shown. There remain for consideration  the effect of the movement upon thu  Giand Trunk and their iWation-J with*  the Mackenzie & Srann gioup of  capitalists who own the Canadian  Northern and are nlso actively at work  building and acquiring, railways in the  Maritime Provinces.  The Grand Tiunk are by no me'iiis  disinterested spectators of developments. The feeling at Point * Sc.  Charles is however, upon the whole,  one of spcmity. "Y\e are competing  with the New York Central "for; our  Chicago and Western traffic' Dragging  it out of the teeth of the New Yoik  Central and its allies so to speak. Our  through service is in every "respect  equal lo theirs and we have no reason  todoubt the loyalty of our competitors.  South of the rfveiJI ther will be  competitors for the local irafiic, aud  possibly elsewhere, for it is impossible  to forsee what in "all 'cases their  movements will be;' but ns. to tha  tlirough traflic We regard our position  as practically impregnable, so long mm  we give the public the service tbey  require, we can look forward with  equanimity to the futnre." These  words were not spoken, with any sens*  of official responsibility, but " they  represent the views of mora than one  prominent official.

NOTE AND COMMENT  The good deeds of the  present provincial administration have not been  -so numerous lhat one has had to turn  nny handsprings to keep tab on them.  However it has one or two to its credit  and the establishment of the Bureau  of Provincial   Information  is one   of  them.     This  department,   under   the  able man.igement of R. E. Gosnell,,has  issued several useful bulletins already,  whicli supply  a good deal  of   useful  information.     How badly needed this  information about  the  province in  a  handy form is is strikingly shewn by  the fact lhat the C.P.R. No. 1 has been  .  recently  going through  in  two   sections,   conveying   settlers    from    the  east clean past the fertile and beautiful  valleys and uplands of the interior and  the magnificent farming lands of the  lower Fraser  to Whatcom  in Washington.

If in  opposition still these   are   their   aims.  The platform is a   radical one.     Olher  platforms have  also contained radical  planks.    The  ditVerence iu this case is  that tlie radicalism is sincere.     At tlu*  same time the platform is a sober and  reasonable   one.    And   it   is   upon  lo  question   whether .an   administration  which coupled  some such ���������I,rrigr.'iiniiic  as this witli a hearty elforl to develop  the resources of .the   province,   would  not  fill   the hill at least as well as lhc  "business" governments   whicli   have  been falling down all over llu* place in  lhe   i-ll'ort   to   run   our a Hairs lor the  past few years.  si  J--A  The Centre for all the Big Free Milling Gold  Groups of Fish River, Pool Creek,!

Mfnw.mmamiwrTxrnmmEnBm  LEGAL  lt is apparently beginning  to dawn  on the Smail thatas the only supporter  of the   Dunsmuir  government left  in  -  sight in thn upper country it is strictly  '"- up against it.    Of  course  "supporter"  is   too   strong-and   complimentary a  pterin to use but lhe Uehald is always  willing   to_   strain    politeness    to    a  . -political.opponent even .to the piint of  " "exaggeration.   But the untnistukeuble  terms witli which   the  Labor conven-  .tion     at1   Kamloops' denounced   ths  Dunsmuir deal  with the C.S.

W. O.   Wells,   M. P. P.. Chief  Commissioner of Lands  and   Works,  might   hot   happen   to   light   on   the  offending paragraph, il makes a little  leeble attempt to square   itsrll"  in   the  current   issue.      "There is," says thi?  trembling champion  of   the   people's  rights, "no necpssity for the  province  to "contribute a ~ent m cash or an acre  of land to   the   C..V.R.    The   railway  will be built without it."    This is all   it  has  to  say nnd in tlie very next par.i-  giaph   hut.  one   it  chuckles over Mr.  Mi-Bride's failure to carry   a   want   of  confidence motion on  the   veiy  deal,  for    which     it   declares   there   is   no  necessity.     It is glad lhat the govern  ment is being sustained in itsi-tTort  to  give away S'2,000.000 of public money  and   S.OOO.ClO   acres   of   public    land,  when,   it   says    itself,     theie    is    no  necessity,  for   tliem   to   give  either a  cent or an acre.  The Express Train.  A light is- shining in the west.  Jf, glitters like an evening star.  No sound yet strikes thc listening car,  But still the light'gleams from afar.  The crowd has waited for an hour.  And now they nuirnuu* at their fate,  Tliey can't see. now this road is rim,  And why the trains are always late.  "Not always late," a"fair one said.  "For I have travelled far and near,  And only had bnt once to wait,  And that is \vhile"'I"ni waiting here.  Have you not hcnd a, storm has raged  And filled lhe cuts   with   banks   of  snow':  And when the engine stuck in these,   -  You may be sure il could not go."  The one that spoke wn*: but a child,  But ������hc was wise beyond her years.  And while, she waited near the door  1 saw her eyes were filled with tears.  1 said, "Why do you look so sad,  Andstandingherein the falling rain?"  She said. "I'm wailing for my pa.  For he is coming on this train."  A   sound was heard from hill to hill.  It was a mighty-monotone.  A distant voice, both loud and hoarse.  And with ;i savage warning blown  Tt nearer comes: lhe steel rails .-ing:  '.The fires now loom upon  the night  And as the thunder dies away,  My.heart beats faster .it the sight. \  I turner, to find my little, maid:  I saw her run with nimble feet:  I followed her with anxiou- eyes  To see if.pa andsh'e would nicer.
