NELS01ST:   TUESDAY MORNING OCTOBER 16  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  m:c&l  W  THERE ASE MAM CRIMINAL CASES  Majority of Offences, However, Committed Outside  of  the City of Nelson.  HOWARD WILL BE TRIED FOR ATTEMPT TO MURDER  The list of criminal cases to come  . before the fall  assizes, which open  this morning at 11 o'clock, is oue of  the longest in recent years.  , With  two exceptions the alleged offences  were" committed outside of Nelson.  The first case on the list is  that of  . Tlegina vs Ernest Chenoweth, the  defendant being a lad eight years  of age.    On May 23rd last a Oliina-  ; man employed in the home of the  boy's mother at Rossland  was shot  dead.    For some days no light was  thrown on the "case and then young  Chenoweth was  arrested   charged  Avith   doing   the    shooting.     The  police claimed that a rille belonging  to the boy's brother was-used  and  a   confession   said   to   have   been  ., made by the lad wasread in court.'  Young Chenoweth has been in jail  ���here since June,  and,his   mother  moved to Nelson  to be near him.  She has visited the jail daily  since,  and the boy  has  kept  his  health  and spirits well.    Jle is stated to be  a quiet, inoffensive little fellow.  Regina vs Albi and Albo who are  not related  despite  the  similarity  in names, is also a Rossland case,  the     defendants     being     jointly  charged with attempting to murder  one Herbert McArthur in   a   hotel  owned by. William  SI. Albi.     The  - latter was in goal   here   for   some  weeks after which his  release was  secured, the attorney-general granting   bail   at   $10,000.     James   V.  '.'Welch,-the-railroad   contractor,  is  ' an uncle of Albi.    N..E. Nuzum'" .a*  :  well known Spokane attorney, will  .assist inthe defence which will   be  * ���'ifijhdueted-by Macdonald &   Johnson and Daly &, Hamilton of   Rossland. <��� .  . . ..Tn Regina vs Kettner and   Fred-  eriek",'*-the prisoners"will be charged  with fraud arising out of their connection with the Lord Howson and  International   mineral    claims    in  Burnt Basin.  Regina vs Sfcadlander is a case in  which defendant is charged with  the theft of a ballot, box at Port  Steele during the last election.  Another Rossland case is Regina  vs Thompson and Henderson.  Deputy Sheriff ltobinson seized the  goods and chattels of the Strand  saloon at Rossland and placed a  man named Brown in charge.  Brown alleges that defendants assaulted him, and they will be tried  for interfering with an officer in  the discharge of his duty.  *' The first Nelson case is Regina  vs. Maslonka, the defendant being  about ten years old. He is to be  tried on the charge qf breaking into  the house of Charles Kursch here  ou July 28th, and stealing therefrom a watch and other articles to  "the value of-$2.*}. Young Maslonka  is incorrigible and would probably  have been committed to the reformatory several months ago had he  beeu of sufficient age then.  Regina vs. Carlyle and .Sutherland is a Kaslo case. Jt arises out  of recent changes in the management of the Lode Star Mining Company, defendant Carlyle being the  present manager. In securing the  company's books he is alleged to  have entered an office during the  night, hence the charge.  Regina vs. Hocking is a case of  alleged bigamy. The crown will  seek to prove that on January 12th  of this year Hocking married Jean  Montgomery at Cranbrook while  his wife, Winnie Hocking,"was alive  and residing in Salt Lake City.  " The last; -casei Centered 'is "Regina:  vs. Howard, in which defendant is  charged with having attempted to  murder AVilliam T. Muller at Nelson  on October 7th. Muller is recovering rapidly, and .will probably be  able to go into the witness box to  testify at the trial.  Constables Barnes of Fort Steele,  Forrester of Robson, Devitt of  Trail and Young of Procter are in  the city to attend the assizes.  ports of South African gold to the  United States, and London might  be counted on to impose whatever  barriers she conld. But the opinion was expressed by one well  known exchange house, which is in  touch with conditions at all foreign  centres, that the United States was  fast reaching a position of eompara-  tive independence as regards tbe  world's gold supply, and that she  might before long assume the control which London-- had so long  held."          The Hague Conference.  Paris, October 15.���It is officially  understood that if an international  conference at The Hague regarding  the settlement of the Chinese indemnity question shall be decided  upon it will not discuss with China  the amount of compensation she  must pay, but will confine its labors  to finding and distributing the proportion of the indemnity which will  go to the special countries interested.          Cannot Join Their Husbands.  Berlin, October 15.���A dispatch  received here from Shang-Hai says  the British there warn European  women against coming north from  Hong Kong in the hope of joining  their husbands, the situation iu the  Yang Tse valley being very serious.

TURNER ARRIVED LAST  NIGHT.  Is Surprised at Nelson's Improved Appearance   Sinc^    His   Last  Visit.  CORPORATION  NOT  ALTOGETHER SOULLESS.  The  Policy of Alex Gervan, Killed in  Powder Explosion, Was  o  "Promptly Paid.  COURT CALENDAR FOB TERM  Cases Before Assizes,  Three cases were added to the  civil list for the assizes opening today, and one of the trio, Robert  Jennings vs. William Van Arsdale,  E. E. Jones, David Newell and  Robert Dempsey, is a mining suit  with several unique features. The  case" arises over-the SirveF~Bug"  fractional mineral claim located by  Jennings in 1898. The defendants  staked the Greenhorn claim on the  0 same ground subsequently, asserting that when the Silver Bug was  located the ground was occupied  by the Noonday claim and that the  location was therefore invalid,  while their location, being made  after the Noonday expired, was  good. Plaintiff sets up the claim  that when the Noonday was located  the' ground was occupied by the  Rocket and the Noonday was therefore invalid. To this reply is made  that when the Rocket was staked  the ground was occupied by the  Dandy, hence the Rocket was invalid. The rejoinder-is made to  this that Bourgeoise, who located  the Dandy, and who was, by the  way, the locator of the Le Roi  mine at Rossland, but allowed his  '*.; miner's license to lapse, hence his  location of the Dandy was invalid.  Up to date the pleadings filed in  the case - have exceeded those of  any action ever entered in British  Columbia. The plaintiff opened by  filing a statement of claim, to  which defendants responded with a  statement of defence. . This was  followed by a reply, a rejoinder, a  sur-rejoinder and a rebutter. Had  a sur-rebutter been reached the  categorjr of the pleadings would  have been exhausted. The case  will give rise to a pitched legal  .battle.  - The next action is Fournier vs  Madden, arising out of a real estate  deal in Ainsworth. The plaintiff,  George P. Fournier claims possession of lots .3 and 4, block 1 and  damages for the   wrongful   deten  tion from July 30 last. The defence asserts that defendant .fames  Madden is. entitled to possession hy  virtue of an agreement to purchase  a half interest. On this point the  claim is made that the agreement  called for a payment of $000 on  September 21 failing which all previous payments were forfeited to  the vendor and the agreement rendered null and void,' which pay-  mend it is asserted defendant did  not make. Defendant states that  plaintiff waivedfoffeitiu'e^in payment of certain debts and the expenditure of certain moneys on the  premises.  Manley vs. Collom has been set  down also.- It is a mining suit, the  litigants being Mark Manley and J.  Frank Collom of the Arlington  mine. Plaintiff asserts that he  purchased a half interest in the  Native Silver fractional on Springer  creek, adjoining the Arlington, and  that defendant or his agents re-  staked the ground as the Arlington  No. 1 fraction while the Native Silver, was a valid and existing loca-  cation. Plaintiff asks to have his  location declared good, a decree  setting aside the location of the  Arlington No. 1 and an injunction  restraining defendant from proceeding in his application for a certificate of improvements. The defense claims that the Native Silver  was located in. a manner contrary  to section 32 of the Mineral Act-  that the lauds upon which the Native Silver was located were within  the limits of the Arlington fraction.  Defendant also asserts that the  alleged transfer by John Halpin,  the locator of the Native Stiver, to  C. J��.. Hal ler from whom plaintiff  purchased his half interest, was  part of a. fraudulent and illegal  scheme by HaUer, Halpin and Robert Cooper, president of the Arlington Mining Company, to evade the  provisions of1 the Mineral Act.  May Take London's Place.  New York, October If).���The  Eveniug Post today prints the following: "One of the best authorities on exchange pointed out that  efforts would probably now be  made abroad to stop further ex-  C. D. J. Christie, local agent of  the Canada Life   Insurance Company, handed- a check yesterday to  Thomas McCammon, administrator  ��� of the estate of .theiate-Harry.Alex  Gervan, iu settlement' of the face  value of a policy on the deceased  young man's life.    The facts of the  case are of more than ordinary interest, indicating, as they do, that  corporations are not always as soulless as is sometimes   represented.  The late Harry Gervan took ont a  $2000 policy in the Canada Life last  fall about four months before his  death.   At   the   time he wras employed as a book-keeper and so described himself in the application  for the- insurance.    Within a short  time he went to work for the Ontario Powder Works and was killed  in the   explosion which   followed.  The insurance company explicitly  set forth in its regulations on the  policy that no policy-holder could  engage   in hazardous occupations,  among which that of working in a  powder factory was set forth within two years of the date of issuing  the   policy without forfeiting   all  claims to insurance.   At the time  of Gervan's death this clause was  violated   and   it is probable that  no court would have compelled the  Canada Life to fulfill its part of the  contract.   The company took a generous view of the situation, particularly in view of the fact that the  deceased young man's father, who  was the heir-at law, had lost heavily through the destruction-of the  Baldwin Iron Works   at Ottawa.  They concluded to pay the claim,  and in the interim   the necessary  legal   steps   have   been   taken   to  prove death and appoint an administrator for the estate.   The fact is  of some additional interest also because   this loss was the first sustained by the Canada Life in Nelson   since  Mr.  Christie   took   the  agency four years ago.  The Duke Denies It.  London, October 15.���The duke  of Marlborough is sending out a  denial statement that W. K. Van-  derbilt had given �� 100,000, as some  papers said, and others ��500,000 to  the duchess as "a thank offering for  the duke's safe return from the  war. The duke and duchess of  Marlborough have been annoyed  by the pleasantries aud serious congratulations that have swollen their  past fortnight's mail.  Appointed a Judge.  London, October 15.���The Hon.  Arthur Russell, eldest son of the  late lord chief justice of England,  baron Russell of Killowen, has been  appointed a- judge of the circuit  court.  Hon. J. H. Turner, minister of finance for British Columbia is registered at the Hotel Phair. He will  remain in the cit^for.aeveral- days  visiting the localgoyernraent offices  and renewing -,'old acquaintances.  At the conclusion of his stay here  Mr. Turner will go to Rossland and  the Boundary on a similiar mission,  His last visit to :this city was made  two years ago aud the marked improvements reported from   Nelson  have elicited-his surprise   and   admiration.   .  In referring to'the report that he  would become agent-general of  British Columbia in London, England, Mr. Turner states that the  matter is yet -.in the hands' of the  government. Should''the appointment be made, however, ic will uot  take effect until after the next sitting ,of the .legislature, when the  question is to be discussed in the  house. Mr. Turhe'riias an advanced  opinion as to the method of running  the office. He believes that- ample  room should'be'arranged for to accommodate 'a thorough exhibit of  mineral specimens and other products of the province. Tn addition  to this he'advocates a thorough  system of procuring and forward"-  ing statistics which will afford full  and up-to-date;information regarding the products "of British Columbia mines, farms and fisheries. On  this visit.he will gather general information;" and'in-the event of taking the agent-generalship, will return later ti*^rocurje..tl.ie.Udata. ne*-;  cessaryto effect the usefulness of-  tiie agency.'  Touching-on the report of cabinet  changes imminent, Mr. Turner  states explicitly that so far as he is  aware no step of the kind "has ever  been or is now contemplated.  Considerable interest is taken locally in the appointment of officials  to fill thewardensliipand registrar-  ship vacant in Nelson. Mr. Turner  states that these positions will be  filled at the next cabinet meeting a  couple of weeks hence.  Asked as to the date of the uext  sitting of the House, the finance  minister remarked that this point  was to a certain extent an open  question as yet, but that the session  would undoubtedly take place early  in the year. He ventured the opinion that the session would be comparatively brief, although several  matters of import would come up.  Referring to matters in general  "at the coast, Mr. Turner remarked  that the leading topic of discussion  in business circles was the proposition of the Great Northern to build  into Victoria. The matter would  be laid before the city shortly, and  he believed the citizens were  strongly in favor of encouraging  the American road to come in.  News From the North.  Victoria,* 'British Columbia, October 15.���The steamer Amur arrived today from Skagway and reports a new placer strike on Lake  Lebarge in Ogilvie valley.

LORD ROBERTS WILL REMAIN  MIKADO CROWDED THE OPEBA HOUSE  A Finished Performance and an Enthusiastic and Appreciative Audience.  IT WAS SPLENDIDLY COSTUMED AND CREDITABLY STAGED;  ACTIVITY OF THE BOERS CAUSES  THE CHANGED PROGRAM.  The London Standard is Particularly  Severe and  Demands That Harsh  Measures  Be  Adopted.  . London,, October 10.���-The Durban correspondent of the Standard  wiring yesterday says : "Railway"  coin muni cation north of Stander--  ���ton has,., been ������ suspended since  Thursday. ..*' .There. aria':>'*pei-sistent  rumors of Boer attacks on the railway.  . Considerable uneasiness has been  caused by the postponement of  lord Roberts' departure.  Commenting upon'the activity of  the Boers and the statement from  Capetown that lord Roberts has  postponed his home coming the  Standard says: "There are certain  indications pointing to the conclusion that unexpected difficulties  have arisen which lord Roberts  deems grave enough to demand his  presence for some time to come.  All the facts suggest that it is impossible yet to denude South Africa  of any substantial portion of the  large army now engaged in dominating a sullen and recalcitrant  population.  The editorial finally calls for the  severest-measures-against-irrecon--  cilable Boers, for a prompt and  ruthless punishment for every insurgent burgher caught in delicto.  The editorial concludes with the  statement that "the imperial government has the country's mandate  and need not be afraid to act vigorously.  Pleaded Not Guilty.  Watertown, New York, October  15.���Loveland Miller, Jr., under indictment for manslaughter by causing the death of W. D. Tyler ou  August 3rd, was arraigned in the  supreme court today and pleaded  not guilty. The defense will be  that Tyler was intoxicated and  that Miller struck the blow in defense of his brother, whom Tyler  was endeavoring to stop in participating in a fight with another boy.  Empress Frederick's Condition.  Berlin, October 15.���^The bulletin issued today at Hombnrg regarding the condition of dowager  empress Frederick confirms the report cabled yesterday that the  heart is dangerously affected. It  has made a very pessimistic impression here.  A Red Sea Coaling Station.  Aden, Oct. 15.���The Sultan of  Turkey has leased to Germany for  thirty years the island of Uroen, in  the Red sea, forty miles north of  Kamaran, for a coaling station.  The initial production of Gilbert  & Sullivan's charming opera "The  Mikado," by the Nelson Operatic  Society last night was highly successful^ both from* an artistic' and  social standpoint.    The opera was  well presented, splendidly costumed  and well staged, while the audience  crowded the house to tbe doors and  was appreciative in a ratio equal to  its number.   The Nelson amateurs  possess dramatic talent   rarely if  ever encountered in a city of this  size, and iu their   latest   venture  they have ample scope to display  their ability.   Any points at whicli  the touch of the amateur  could be  detected were more than > counterbalanced by the clever costuming  and the manner iu which the stage  business was handled.     The shade  of stiffness observable in places was  only to be expected on a first night  and'*'the   citizens,   who   patronize  "The Mikado" tonight will have the  benefit of the more finished production.    The play made a big hit  and   the   local   amateurs   covered  themselves with credit.  "TheMikado" lends itself particularly to the costumer's art, and no  effort was spared to make this a  feature of the production by the  operatic'society. The costumes for  the chorus were made iu Winnipeg  and were excellent. ' The "Three.  Little Maids from School" who fi'gj-  ure so prominently.were most bef  comingly attired in costumes made  .by-Mrs..

YET ANOTHER RICH STRIKE  171 Claims Staked in a Day.  Victoria, October 15.���Reports  of still another new gold discovery  are given by passengers arriving  here from the north. As several of  these were passing, the mouth of  Stewart river on the 2nd instant  they were told that on the previous  day 17 L claims had been staked  off on Clear creek, a tributary  of the Stewart river, where  it is stated that 50 miles of good  placer ground is available. Pay  dirt is said to run 25 cents to the  pan. Another strike has been made  southwest of Atlin. The discoverers, however, are keeping the locality secret and refuse to record their  claims in hopes that bigger claims  than 100-foot ones would be established. There are two Clear creeks  in the north, that on the Stewart  and that on the Chilcat in the Porcupine country, which have both  recently been the scene of stampedes.  Tn a letter ,judge George Girton,  United States commissioner at Porcupine, says thafc he is confident  that the new strike oh the latter is  a rich one. He further says that  there is plenty of ground there,  and owing to the small sized British Columbia claims there will be  room for many locations in the  district.   A new grant on the Por  cupine has been issued for Berry  Wiley and his associates and Mr,  Girton says that next season they  will be able to take out $1000 a  day. ���  : ' ": .'

If the mines were taxed  on tho value of the ore produced,  less   the   cost of   production  and  treatment, what revenue would the  province receive from that source  of taxation ?   If the men who are  taxed on  their   incomes   were  allowed  to deduct their   living expenses from the amount of their incomes, how much would  the province receive from   income taxes?  Jt i3 all very well for mine owners  to say the two per cen t tax is an  unfair one on them ; but they must  be able to prove that ifc is  unfair  before people will take any stock  in their contentions.  into, say, 8,000,000 shares of the par  value of $1. The shares were  quoted on the Toronto stock exchange yesterday at 03 cents bid.  This makes the mine worth $2,790,-  000. A fair assessment would be  two-thirds of that, or .$1,800,000.'  Taxed as real estate, the rate of  taxation would be four-fifths of  one per cent, which would make the  taxes on the property $14.SS0,  which it is safe to say is as great a  sum as the Payne will pay the province this year on the 2 per font  basis.           Now that it is settled that polling  day in the Yale-Cariboo  will   be a  week or "two  later than  the  date  fixed   for  the-country as a whole,  there is less interest being taken iu  the canvass..  Yale-Cariboo will undoubtedly go as the  country  goes,  notwithstanding   any   effort   that  the local, politicians may make.    If  the   country   goes    Liberal,  Yale-  Cariboo     will     return    candidate  Galliher.       If    the   Conservatives  carry the country, candidate Mae-.  Neill Will be elected easily.    This is  not because the people of the constituency are lacking  in  principle,  but because a large number of the  electors are  not strong  partisans.  These men believe that there are  no great principles at stake, and  that the constituency can best be  served by a member of the party  that is in  power.     And  tliey are  right.    If the Liberal   party  is returned to power," of what use would  Mr. MacNeill; be "in  the"./house"?   If  the Conservatives carry the country  of what use would Mr. Galliher be  in shaping legislation, or securing  what is urgently heeded for  the  district?     Of   course,   the   Labor  party   men   will argue that their  manis" sure to win, and' that his  influence will be   felt   no   matter  which party is iii power.   And, of  course, the Labor party men are  entitled io their opinions.  FOUND GREAT OPPORTUNITY  Big Contracts for America.  . In  this practical world, there  is  nothing quite so great as a great  opportunity,   says    the   Saturday  Evening Post.  During.the past 12 months much  has occurred in England. More  than 200,000 troops, the flower of  British manhood, have been chasing  Boers in South Africa and have  been causing the government to  spend millions of dollars a day and  to lay the hand of taxation heavily  upon the people. With the absence  of part of England's working force  and with the presence of the financial problem, the sharp-witted  American saw his cliance. This lias  happened not only in regard to the  transportation problem in London,  not only in respect to. the charters  for trolley lines in the other cities  of England, Scotland and Wales,,  but also in,respect to the building  <>f ~1 arge^mduTTtriesrnoTT/ATSerican  NELSON MINES AND MINING  ��� An Athabasca Strike.

England made millions out of our  civil war aud did not lose anything  in our war with Spain. Now it is  the turn of the United States.  In round numbers, we are now  sending from our shores $4,000,000  worth of exports every day. Of  this over $1,000,000 per day is in  manufactured-goods.  Take the increase by decades.  Tho figures given are quoted from  a statement from the treasury department: "in 1SG0 the exports of  manufactures averaged $3,500,000  per month; in 1870 they wore a  little over $:"5,000,000 per month;  in 1880 they were less than $10,000,-  000 per month ; in 1890 they were  $12,500,000 per month; in 189!)  they were $2S,000,000 per month,  and in the fiscal year, 1900, $30,000,-  000. per month."

HE DIED AT THE THROTTLE  Tho Strain on Engineers,     ���',-'���'  A-few. days ago another locomo-  .'live engineer died at- the throttle.  This time it was one of the most  famous engineers in the entire  country. Dispatches from Ashtabula, Ohio, announced that (Jeorge  .-Martin, noted as the man who was  fi reman on the presidential train  which drew Lincoln to AVashington  when he was-first inaugurated, had  suddenly dropped dead while at his  post on an engine of the Lake Shore  fast mail, says the Chicago Chronicle. By a strange .coincidence- it  seems Martin was also fireman on  the engine which hauled the Lincoln funeral train west from Washington.  Within the last few years there  have been so many engineers who  have dropped dead while running  their engines that the suddenness  * of the death of so many men employed  in  the same capacity  has  ,''caused considerable > comment.  There is scarcely a road in the  country on which one or more engineers have not thus suddenly departed life while oh duty in the locomotive cab. There have also  been a number of instances in  which- engineers have met with  death'by accident'while seated in  the locomotives. Some time ago an  engineer on the New York Central  met an untimely end in a peculiar  manner. The water pipe on a tank  at the side of the road had been  broken in "some way.** and ' had  dropped from its Vertical position  and hung suspended in the air almost evjtctly over the rail on the  water tank side of the railway. A  through train which did not make  a stop at this tank came by at lightning speed; As fate would have it,  the engineer poked his head out of  the window just as the . train  reached the tank. IIJs head struck  the heavy pipe and was knocked  completely off his shoulders as.if it  had been severed by a sword. The  unfortunate man had lost his life so  ijuickly that lie could not have  known what happened to hirn, for  within a fraction of a second his  head   had   been dashed from   his  ���.- body.".."  Only.a few months .ago an engineer on the Michigan Central had  a narrow-escape from death down  at Hammond." He Jeaned so far  out of his cab that his .head was  dashed against the post of a sema-  phore. Fot tunatelyj*lie__traiu���was J  riot going at great speed and the  man's skull was not crushed. He  was simply knocked unconscious to  the floor of the locomotive. A few  weeks in the hospital brought hiin  around all right and lie went back  to his engine, resolving not to stick  his head so far out of the cab when  he wanted to get a breath of fresh  air or a little better view of the  rails or the country in the future.  It is not, however, the accidents  to engineers, but their deaths from  heart failure, paralysis, etc., which  are of the greatest significance.  Many railroad people will well remember a sudden death which occurred on an engine of one of tho  great western roads not long ago.  A fast train was thundering along  over the rails at its usual rate of  speed. Suddenly the fireman  noticed that the train shot over the  grade crossings of a country road  without the usual preceding whistle.  The fireman looked over at the engineer and "wondered what in the  world was the matter.  The engineer was sitting on the  little seat on his side of the-engine,  with his eyes on the track ahead.  The fireman concluded that by just.  a little oversight or forgetfulness  the engineer had neglected to pull  the whistle. About the next minute the train flew, over another  crossing without the whistle blowing. The fireman grew a little uneasy, but he was disinclined to call  the attention of the engineer to his  mistake for fear his correction  might not be kindly received. Superior employes, like military oflicers,  do not take rebuke with pleasure  from those uuderthem. The fireman  did not wish to give offense, so he  Inept stiJJ.   put a few minutes later  THE BANK 0F  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  Is now prepared to issde Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City, N. W. T.  the train ran by a station where it  was scheduled to stop. Then the  fireman's eyen began to stand out���  a queer lump came up in his throat,  and for a few minutes he remained  frozen to his seat and staring at  the.engineer, who still kept his seat  aud looked steadily ahead at the  glittering rails. Another station  seemed to fairly fly past the train  and the fireman began to regain his  senses. He slowly got down from  his seat and stepped over to the  engineer.  -"Say, old man," he 9aid, half hesitatingly, as if fearing he would get  called down for interrupting his  superior's thoughts. There was no  reply.  "Say, John, I thought maybe  you���" here the fireman reached  forward and touched the engineer's  arm, He sprung back with a  startled look on his face; then he  jumped forward and with both  hands shook the engineer. Then  the fireman knew why the train  had sped over the crossings without whistling and. why it had run  past stations where it stopped every  day. The engineer was dead. The  fireman sprang to the throttle and  brought the.train to a stop as it  was entering." the next town. A  physician; was hurriedly summoned,  but he was too late to be of any  service. He said the man had been  dead over an hour. "Heart failure" was the verdict. The fireman  ran the train until he got to one of  the larger towns, where another  engineer was taken on to finish the  trip.  This was a typical case of the  engineer expiring at his post. All  of the many eases of death are of  almost exactly this same character^  The engineer fails to whistle, runs  past stations or fails to slow up  when going dowir grade or running through stations where the  law requires a slower speed, and  then for the first time the fireman  discovers something wrong and  steps "over-to'his chief to: find- that  without the least warning life has  departed.  "T htive been thinking much lately about those sudden deaths of engineers," said an old railroad man  the other day, and I have just  about come to the conclusion that  it is caused Jby pure nervous strain  and nothing else. Few people realize what great strain, an engineer,  a conscientious one, is., under.

VOTE  FOR ....  A.  H.  MacNEILL  of Rossland  Candidate of the Liberal-Conservative Party for Member  of the House of Commons for Yale-Cariboo.  PLATFORM   *  Adopted by the Liberal-Conservative Party in Convention  at Revelstoke, September 15th, 1900  AVe, the delegates of the Liberal-Conservative party of Yale-Cariboo  constituency, in convention assembled, reaffirm the principles of the  parfcy, and more particularly that cardinal principle, protection to home  industries, and that that principle be carried out so that all sections of  the country shall equally share its benefits.  The one industry on which the prosperity of this constituency is  almost wholly dependent is mining; and we believe that our mining industries are as fairly entitled tp protection as the manufacturing industries of Eastern Canada ; therefore, we advocate that tbe duties on lead  and lead products be increased, so that they shall'be as high as those now  imposed by the United States on the same articles.  That the output of the precious metal miiies is largely increasing,  therefore we favor the establishment of a mint, so that the specie in circulation shall be thafc of our own instead of thatrof a foreign country.  AVe advocate the restriction of the immigration of Chinese and Japanese, and all classes who cannot become good citizens of the Dominion  of Canada, and suggest the adoption of the principles of the Natal Act.  British Columbia has not now the representation in the federal parliament that she is entitled to: therefore we advocate that when the  redistribution of seats is made that this constituency shall be given representation according to its population.  That ifc augurs w,ell for the success of the parfcy that Hugh John  Macdonald has decided to leave the field of provincial politics to take  part in the larger one that affects the people of the whole of Canada.  ��w  ib^iezr,�� <fe oo.  ir-ELsoisr  KASLO  S-A.*ET*DO*IS"r  STOVES!
