P. R. Buildings���Along the Water Front.  STEAMER ANGERONA SINKS OFF CITY WHARF SATURDAY  Two railroad men from  the Nelson district have boon advanced  to  l he grade of  passenger  conductors  and placed in charge  of  trains  on  (he boundary branch. One of these  is James G.  Irving, a well-known  and popular Nelson trainman, who  J'nnuerly ran  on ������freight  between  liobson  and  this   city.    He takes  one of tho trains running  between  .Midway and Rossland.    Irving was  secretary of the  Brotherhood  hero  and is among the best trainmen on  tlie division.   The second passenger  run fell to the lot of A. C. Mesker,  who has been on the Nakusp branch  for some years.    Both men have assumed their new duties.   The vacancy in the local service  has  not  . been filled as"yet.   The run! is  regarded as among the pleasantest in  the division and it is probable that  one of the men  who graduated to  the  Rossland  branch   will   return  and take it ovor.   Joe Kenny aud  W. Funk are mentioned in this connection.   The vacancy on the Nakusp branch has been filled by the  appointment   of   Robert   Brett,  a  popular trainman who has  run on  the branch for some time.  C. P. E. Building Operations.  The building operations at the  0. P.' R. depot are progressing satisfactorily. The roundhouse might  be used now if necessary, although  it will not likely be utilized for a  fortnight at-least.. The'coal chutes  are now being .constructed. . On  Saturday morning th'e'fibst'loconio-  tive.was placed on   the   turntable  . which worked smoothly. The  table will be used for this ^ purpose  ���"right along. Contractor Hepburn  has the superstructure of the passenger depot well Under way. As  the building proceeds it is evident  that various, changes have been  made in tho plans since the original  > idea was drafted. The first plans  called,for stone walls half way up  the first story but wood has been  used. No start has been made on  the freight shed beyond excavating,  but as the switch for bringing material to the site of the building is  now completed" the work will doubtless proceed at once.  Severe Winter Predicted.  The steamboat men have predicted that the approaching winter  will be severe. They produce no  -special-reason-why-this^should���be-  the case and up to the present the  weather conditions have not been  such as to point to an extremely  cold winter. However, tho men.  along the lake front have a presentiment that there will be ice and  lots of it and the chances are their  prediction will be verified. If this  proves to be the case the 0. P. R.  barges will bo unloadad at Procter  and brought into Nelson by rail  ��)ver the extension. In ah ticipa-  tion of this course being necessary  the C. P. R. is building a pontoon  at the shipyards which will be utilized for unloading at the Procter  slip.  Miscellaneous.  For several weeks past the freight  business in and out of Nelson has  increased largely. Compared with  ���the same month of last year the  percentage of increase assumes respectable proportions and it seems  likely the last quarter of the present  year will see an entirely new record  established in the transportation  line.       >..'.       ���  .".' '  The.H"prk on the C.-P. R. between  Five-mile Point and the city will be  completed next week. James V.  Welsh, who did a part of the work,  has laid off most of his crew and at  Stewart's camp only a small force  is left. These are engaged in building rip-rap work to protect some of  the new fills during high water.  The grade over the line to Procter  is said to be well ballasted and surfaced. '  The Allan brothers who recently  purchased the launch Mischief have  towed the craft  up  to  one-mile J  point and taken the engino out of  the old hull. They will build a  new hull to be ready for launching  in the spring.  Angerona Went Down.  The steamer Angerona sank at  her moorings "on Saturday night.  The craft was tied up midway on  the city wharf and had been leaking slowly for some time. Oh Saturday the water had reached her  syphon holes and the 2-inch streams  thus admitted quickly. swamped  her. She lies in six foot of water  with the funnel . and a portion of the upper works above  water. The Angerona is owned by  captain Busk, who is abroad. No  one seems to have been left in  charge of the boat, which has been  tied up here for . six months. The  bull is understood to be practically  played put,-but the engines, which  are compound five and ten by eight,  are in good condition.  The Lake Palling.  The water in the lake has been  falling slowly but steadily for  two days. The long spell of wet  weather raised the lake two'feet, a  rare occurrence in October, but the  frosty days following have stopped;  the rise and oace more the level is  dropping. On Sunday the scale at  Hale's boat house indicated a drop  of.two inches since Friday."  two lime kilns on the draw system,  the only ones of the kind in the  province. These kilns have an  aggregate output of 800 bushels per  diem. This year ho built two  bridges on the C. P. II. and is "just  completing another at Portage La  Prairie for the government.  Trip Didn't Pay.  The  steamer   Marion   has  been  taken off;the Crawford Bay run,  her last trip;beh-g" a-special-on-^-Friday when McVeigh brothers took a  crew of men up to the bay to work  on their stables. The Marion ran  last year on the Duucan river .and  is said to have done well, being  well adapted to river' navigation.  On October 1 she commenced the  daily run to Crawford creek but  the experiment proved a financial  failure, one reason being that the  navigation companies have corralled  most of the business. The Marion  is skippered by captain Thomas  Kane and is owned by the" Lode  Star Mining Company of Kaslo.  The Bridge at Robson.  John Gunn, the contractor who is  to build the stonework for the  C. P. R. bridge at Robson, is registered at the Hotel Hume. A portion of his plant has alreadjr arrived  and within a week he*- expects to  'have the work activelyTmder" way.  The contract is a large one, involving the quarrying and laying of  5000 yards of stone. The cost to  the C. P. R. is about $S0,000. The  entire span is 800 feet long and Mr.  Gunn is to build the abutments on  either shore and the six piers on  which the superstructure will rest.  At present deep water there is .35  feet in the river and the stonework  will be built by means of caissons.  A couple of divers will be brought  in to explore the bed of the river  and determine as to the foundations,  etc. The rock will probably be  quarried in the immediate vicinity  of Nelson. Mr. Gunn found considerable difficulty in locating a  quarry where he could operate to  advantage. The limestone encountered was not stratified as is  essential where the rock is to be  used for building purposes and the  granite was badly broken, up. He  has located a deposit of granite  near the city which he believes will  answer the purposeadmirably. The  stone will be dressed at the.bridge.  The superintendentof the work will  be J. Murray while H. E. Armstrong,  will represent the C. P. R. Two  cars of plant including derricks,  horse powers and hoisting engines  have already been delivered ae  Nelson and the balance of tht  equipment, consisting of three carloads of plant will be along this  week. The work is to be completed  during low water which means that  the stonework must be completed by  June next.  John Gunn comes from Stonewall, Manitoba, where he operates  a quarry and has similar industries  Nat Stoney Mountain 'and Tyndall.  In connection with these he owns  Niitfget Worth $154,000  Nkw Yokk, November   '.).���The  biggest nugget ever received at the  assay office in Wall street, according to superintendent Cook, arrived  today from a placer raining company in Rritish Columbia.   It was  consigned to the New York agents  of the Bank of Montreal. The nugget contained a  fraction over 753  pounds of the solid .yellow metal,  and is valued at $151,000.   Ifc came  in a solid cone and stood, two feet  high.   This cone was wrapped in  canvas and  fitted with an oblong  box made of two-inch planks and  heavily bound with iron.   The gold  was firmly held in the box by two  wooden wedges driven in from the  top.   Two heavy iron rings were  set in the sides of tho rough box  and   through    these    were   fitted  wooden ^bars by which the box was  lifted. -It required four men to remove it from the track in the assay  office to the scales.  A PILGRIMAGE AND A PANIC  STREET CAR RUNS AWAY PROM  THE MOTORMAN.  He Was Rendored fowerloss By the  Crush of Passengers, Many of Whom  Were Severely Injured.  Explosion in New York.  New York, November 4.���Following an explosion today, which blew  off the iron shutters in the five-  story building at No. 499 Broom  street and broke windows in the  adjacent buildings, flames did much  damage to stocks of goods in the  place. What cansed the explosion  is not definitely' known. Two  passers-by were slightly injured by  flying glass when the windows blew  .out.   ' -   -   THE POPE OF ROME WAS SUED  . Montreal, November 4.���There  was a -pilgrimage, this afternoon  from   tho archbishop's   church  to  Cote'des Neiges c'e!yetery,.attended  .by several thousaiul-.peoplo.   While  a street car loaded to its capacity  was ascending-the- steep, Goto des  Neiges hill the trolley slipped  off  the,wire.    The motorman  immediately applied his'brakes,  but the  car began slidingbackward slowly.  There was a panic among the people  inside the car and they made a rush  for the front vestibule. -   So many  crowded in that the motorman was  rendered powerless to do anything>  further. People.broke the vestibule  windows and the.,windows, of the  car and jumped from'the rear platform.

WRIT SHOVED INTO THE HANDS  OP HIS REPRESENTATIVE.  Surviving^Relatives.ofan.ItalianCard-.  . mal .Claim a Fortune of About  Two Million Dollar.--.  Rome, November 4. ��� Recently  there was much curiosity about the  Vatican over a strange man who  had been loitering about the, en-"  trance. He was well dressed and>  well behaved, and as the police  seemed to know him the Vatican  authorities could do nothing. At  the beginning of the week the mystery was solved, for as cardinal  Rampolla was entering his carriage  the stranger shoved a writ into his  hand. The stranger proved to be a  bailiff of the high court, aud the  writ had been issued in the suit of  countr-^Coufalsinierir^against^the  pope and the Vatican, whose legal  representative Rampolla was held  to be.  The count is the nearest surviving relative of tho late cardinal  Falconieri, who died 40 yeaas ago,  leaving a fortune estimated at 10,-  000,000 lire (about $2,000,000). It  was stated that he left no will, and  pope Pius IX therefore took the  property for the benefit of the holy  see, his right being then temporary  sovereign. Recently cardinal Fal-  conieri's will was found, and it is  stated that he bequeathed his entire fortune to the child who is now  count Confalsiuierei. The latter  demands the amount with interest.  Knew Its Meaning.  New Youk, November 3.���There  was a humorous feature iu connection with the pleasant ones that occurred during senator Chauncey M.  Depew's campaigning at Cobleskill  yesterday. Senator Depew was  rudely interrupted during his efforts to make a speech, but one of  the retorts to his remarks was  clever enough to bear repetition.  "Is there a man in this crowd who  knows what 10 to'l-means?" asked  the senator in an pf-course-thereris-  not tone, "Yes," was the prompt  reply from au old son of Erin. "It  means you have sixteen Dagos to  wan Irishman on your big New  York Central railroad." The' senator gasped at the retort, while the  crowd roared.  Egyptian Crops Poor.  Cairo, November 4.---The October reports regarding the Egyptian cotton crops are unsatisfactory, both as. to yield and quality.  Spellbinding at Moyie.  Moyie, November 3.���[Special to  The TRiBUNEj^The Oddfellows'  hall was crowded last night to hear  MaeNeill arid Goodeve. Many  ladies were in attendance. . A. P.  McDonald-was in the chair. With  a few remarks^ he introduced Mr.  MaeNeill, . who made " ��a neat,  ���straightforward address. He complimented the Labor party for selecting" Mr.-Foley, and "then went at"  the Liberal-party and charged them  'with.breaking^iiJieh^-'jpledgea. ? He -  also took up issues' of -interest to  the electors. When he closed  other speakers were called but none  cared to take the platform. " Mayor  Goodeve of Rossland then made the  best political -speech ever heard  here. He was, often questioned  but always explained himself and  party thoroughly. He. was nsked  whatthe'Conservatives ever did  for'labor unions, and replied that  Sir John A. Macdonald had laws  passed which allowed labor unions  to have charters iu Canada. This  was applauded. He spoke an hour  and twenty minutes. Rev. Mr.  Mahon then took the platform for  Foley and- asked questions. Mac:  Neil I replied. - MaeNeill will beat  Galliher in Moyie:  Found Another Body.  New Youk, November 4.���An-  "Other'body'wastakeirf rom the ruins=  of the.Tarrant building today. The  body proved to be that of, a man.  The right leg and the left arm were  missing, the features unrecognizable and there were no marks on  the clothing which would identify  the wearer. The building department employees pulled down a portion of the wedge shaped building  at 273 Wellington street tonight.  .Warren", street is entirely clear,  though no thoroughfare is allowed  yet.

THREE POLITICAL POWWOWS  All Reported Highly Satisfactory.  All the parties held rallies in their  committee rooms Saturday night  and there was no. end of spellbinding and applause, judging from  the reports that have;been allowed  to sift into this influential but non-  political journal. The Conservatives confined their oratorjr to appeals on behalf of tho cry that came  from Hugh John in Brandon, where  he is grappling with a man named  Siftdn, who is reputed to be the  owner of a Klondyke sack with no-  strings on it. A number of the  boys responded, and expressed a  willingness to go all the way to  Brandon at their own expense, in  order to vote for the party. They  said that candidate   MaeNeill   was  already elected in this constituency  and he could well spare them.  At the Liberal headquarters, the  old guard were out to the number  of a hundred, more or less. They  listened to words "of political wisdom from S. S. Taylor, Q. C, and  tho candidate of the party himself.  In the back chamber, whore only  the inner circle are allowed to  meet, James McPhee and John  Ayton Gibson were adding up columns of figures. It is not known  whether the figures represented the  votes that candidate Galliher would  get in Nelson, or number of dollars  that would be required to pay tho  traveling expenses of tho Liberal  pilgrims on route to Sif ton's raecca  in Manitoba.  The spellbinding at the Conservative and Liberal meetings was as  nothing when compared with the  the oratory that flooded'the Labor  headquarters in the old Hudson  Bay store. The spellbinders wero  out iu force there. James Wilks,  who is recognized as themostfluent  speaker in the Labor party, was-  thore, so were "Pat" Daly, "Bob"  Robinson, VMIet'-' Mowat, "Walt"  Kee and "Old'" Man" Lackey. Mr.  Daly-is from" Ymir, that stronghold  of Liberalism, where the secretary  of the local miner's union is president of the local Liberal association.  Mr. Daly said that the working-  men of his town were not lukewarm  in their support of Chris Foley, and  the politicians who imagined they  were would have their eyes opened  on election day. This announcement was received with cheers.  The speech of the evening was  made by Mr. Wilks, who has since  been directed to follow candidate  MaeNeill into the wilds of East  Kootenay and he will leave for  Fort Steele this morning.  UNVEILED THE MONUMENT  THAT OF PRESIDENT CARNOT AT  LYONS FRANCE.  Socialistic Demonstration Did Not Ma-  -'' " teriahze���Honors" Paid" to tlie-  Family of Deceased.  Lyons, France, November 4.���-No  disorder marred the ceremony of  unveiling the monument to the late  president Carnot here today or the  luncheon tendered president Carnot by tho chamber of commerce,  which followed the unveiling, although the Socialist committee had  posted bills calling upon their follow ers to make a demonstration in  protest against the chamber, of  commerce, which is regarded by  them as clerical and reactionary.  The entire city was hung with  flags and the crowd was immense.  =M.=WaldecKiRousseaii,=the=pi-e"aiei\=  M. Delanessen, minister of marine,  and M. Millerand, minister of commerce, participated in the procession, which consisted of forty carriages. M. Waldeck-Rousseau and  M. Millerand were warmly cheered  on their arrival at the Place de la  Repi.bliquo whore the statue  stands. M. Loubet sat in the tribune, surrounded by tho ministers,  the mayor of Lyons and other municipal functionaries.  M. Waldeck-Rousseau eulogized  Carnot's personal qualities and his  devotion to Democratic principles.  The procession was then reformed  and proceeded to the prefecture,  where the official presentations  took place.  Replying to an address of homage  by cardinal Pierre Hector Coullie,  archbishop of Lyons, M. Loubet  said: "I must seize this opportunity to demolish the myth that  the government is the enemy of any  religion, worship or belief whatsoever."  Responding to an address by the  governor of the department, general  Duchesne, M. Loubet said: "The  government, as well as myself, have  already striven to dissipate misunderstanding regarding its sentiments toward the army, and I know  that we can call upon the army's  loyalty and devotion."  The president then drove to the  chamber of commerce, meeting  there with a reception that repeated the enthusiasm displayed at  tho unveiling. After the luncheon  he spoke in praise of tho initiative  of the chamber in sending commercial missions to the east and  commended its efforts to improve  the conditions of labor in Lyons.  GOLD IF FELSOFS STBUCTMS  But It Is  Not  Supposed The  Prospectors  WM Tearj  Them Down to Get It. 3  WORK ON  BIRDS EYE MINE  PROVING SATISFACTORY:  * The. development work at tho  Birds Eye mine is givingmost satisfactory results. The crew is now  drifting from the foot of tha shaft  at a depth "of 135 feet and the showing is" improving constantly. The  Messrs. Wilson aro so well satisfied  that they will today start a second shaft on a parallel ledge. This  second lead is well defined and  give's promise of becoming one of  tho features . of tho property.  Samples from the surface -have  averaged $40. If the Birds Eye  holds good, and there seems to .be  no further room for doubt on thi3  score, a stamp mill will be installed  next year.         Gold on Baker Street.  It may be of interest to Nelson-  ites to learn that the marble used  in the fronts of the Burns and  Houston blocks'and in other business places is said .to run $2.50 in  -gold. A scrutiny of the marble  will disclose the pyrites carrying  the values. Up to the present time  no method of treating $2.50 rock at  a profit in the"Kootenays has been  discovered, so that there is ��� no immediate danger of enterprising prospectors staking these buildings as  mineral claims. *  Waiting for Snow.

It takes sudden changes.  When the Liberals nominated Galliher of Nelson, it did  not   like   it,  but it seemed to be willing to stand  by the action of the party.    When  the Conservatives nominated   MaeNeill of   Rossland,   it   spoke   fair  words for him,   and   it   was   even  rumored that its editor had instructions from Montana to wheel   the  -  paper into the Conservative   camp.  Saturday of last week, however, it  wheeled right-about and came out  s strougly in favor of the   candidate  of the   Independent   Labor party,  who happens to be   a   resident   of  Rossland.   It says: "If Mr. Galliher  " should be the choice of the   eon-  " stituency, what are we to expect  " from him save theordinary favors  " which the government metes out  " to its loyal supporters."    What  does the Miner expect can   bo   accomplished by an "ordinary" member of parliaraen t?   Does i t expect  the member-elect -for Yale-Cariboo  to   bo   made   a   minister ?    Why  should Chris Foley, if  elected,   secure such recognition ?   The Miner  knows full well that ministers   are  always selected from old aud tried  members of whichever party is successful at the polls.   But the Miner  is not   altogether  frank.    It   professes to believe ith at Laurier *will  again sweep the   country,   but   it  does not   want   the   Laurier   man  {who happens to be a  resident  of  Thrkh are three smelter.-, in  successful operation in Southern British Columbia.  It is safe to say that  over $500,000 have been  expended  in their   construction,   and   it   is  equally safe to say that their operation causes $1,000,000 to be disbursed.annually for wages to men  who work at or about them.   The  smelter-at Trail supports the bulk  of-the people who-live in that good-  sized town.   The real and personal  property of Trail   figures   in the  total of the assessment rolls of the.  ���province.   -The t��*vx collector is in  evidence there.every year,,and the  money he collects helps to pay for  the roads, bridges and trails that  are built to the new mines arid mining camps'throughout" the province.  So with the smelters- at' Nelson and  Grand Forks.   But'how about tlie  smelter at Northport, .-just across  the international boundary line in  -the state of Washington? It draws  its ore supply from the-great Le  Roi mine at Rossland, a mine that  is owned by accompany whose' head  office is in London, England.  Is 'the  operation  of ��� that smelter of any  benefit-to-the people of British Columbia?. -Thetaxes that the people  of Northport-pay are not expended  in building roads and bridges and  trails to isolated-mines  in British  Columbia.     Yet   there are  people  who are opposed to placing any restrictions   whatever   on the companies thatship-the output of their  mines to smelters   located in  the  United States.   The Tribune says  double the mineral tnx on all such  mines.         WRITTEN   BY   LABORERS.  spell some words as Webster - spells  tli em.

The one industry on whicli tho prosperity of this constituency is  almost wholly dependent is mining; and we believe that our mining industries are as fairly entitled to protection as the luaiml'actm'ing industries of Eastern Canada ; therefore, we advocate that the duties on lead  _anil"lead"*'prodiictfl"bfi_inni,eased7so that^thoyshall-be as -lugh-as-tliose-noiv-  imposed.by the ITnited States on the same article'!.  That the output of the precious metal mines is largely increasing,  -therefore we .-favor the establishment of a mint, so that the. specie in circulation shall bo that of our own instead of that of a foreign country.  .  We advocate the restriction of the. immigration.of Chinese and .Tap-  -'nhe.se, and all classes Svho cannot become good citizens of the Dominion  of^Ganada, and suggest the adoption of the principles of the Natal Act.  IJiitish Columbia lias not now the representation inthe federal parliament that she is entitled to: .therefore wo advocate that when the  I redistribution of seats is made that-this constituency shall bo given representation according toi its population.

THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  THE CONSPIRACY DWINDLES  To Small Proportion!!.  The San Francisco Ecu mi nor of  November 1st has a scare head  which reads us follows: "Gigantic  Oimsi-irncy that Resulted in the  Theft of Thousand*." "King  formed by Conductors and Agents  of the Caiiaidian PacificSteal Nearly  a Million."         The Rossland Record of November 2nd says under tho heading,  " (J. 1��. R. Frauds Exaggerated":  " Siiperintondont Marpole states  that while there has been some illicit trade in tickets between Rossland and Greenwood, the matter  has been grossly exaggerated. Two  conductors on this route have been  suspended, aud it is said one has  been discharged. Mr. McArthur  states that his office is not concerned in the matter and no investigation is pending regarding himself or his staff. Andy Anderson,  the transfer man, says tl*,at he first  heard of the alleged syndicate yesterday and he wants it distinctly  understood that he is notconcerned  in the matter directly or indirectly."  This story of conspiracy and robbery has been so distorted and magnified that The .Tribune is of  opinion that there is little in ifc.  All railways employ secret service  men, commonly known as "spotters." These men are cordially  hated-by the men operating trains,  and there is no love between the  two .classes. The train-men may  not all be honest; but they are  probably just as honest, as' a class,'  as are the presidents.and managers  and superintendents who employ  the "spotters." There are few  presidents and-, managers and su-  .jierihfcenderits of great railway systems-that do not get "rakeoffs " in  purchasing supplies for the companies which they manage. The  president may have an interest in  works where box-cars are manufactured, and all orders for box-cars  for his road goes to that particular works. So with thejnan-  agers and superintendents. The  works invwhich they are interested-  financially always get orders if they  can throw them that-way. This is  considered legitimate by; the high  officials of railways," and "spotters"  .are never employed to.expose these  little rake-offs. Conductors are not  supposed to take advantage of-their  opportunities. A conductor may  spend his money in.making himself  popular so as to induce people to  ^travel_oyer,_t.he_road_on���which_he.  works, but ho has no way to reimburse himself for any sums that he  thus expends. Conductors are not  allowed to turn in expense bills,  and the result is! that some of tlie  conductors probably help themselves. But when- they do the  "spotter" is not always honest in  tihe methods lie adopts to -make a  case against the man ho is employed  to watch.'< The following story illustrates this point; and it is just  possible that when the inside history of the recent work of some of  the Canadian Pacific secret service  agents on this section is known, the  conspiracy that has been unearthed  will dwindle to very small proportions.   The story is as follows:  The Spotter Up to Date.  Most people look with disfavor  upon a professional spotter even  when he confines himself to the  limits of fair methods and telling  the truth. When he resorts to-un-  ffair methods, the disfavor with  ..which he is .viewed is intensified ;  when he resorts to dishonesty or to  falsehood in order to attach suspicion, or so-called conviction of dishonesty upon another, he utterly  forfeits the consideration of all  decent people, and proves himself  unworthy of a place in the same  world with honest and self-respecting men.  Many a good conductor has been  ' brought into trouble with his employers through spotters, male and  female, working upon -his sympathies, his generosity find-his disposition to be charitable. All sorts  of hard luck stories about sick  wives and hungry children have  been told and, in many instances,  Is now prepared to issue Drafts.and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U.

Some of the profession (?) were recently employed by the St. Louis  Southwestern Railroad Co. (commonly called the "Cotton"Belt.")  The disreputable 'methods adopted  by them to try to manufactiiro evidence against the conductors of  that company are best shown toy  tho contents of the following affidavit, which is a fair sample of  thirty-five similar ones, each from  a reputable citizen, -which were  secured by the committees representing the conductors who had  been dismissed on the strength of  the reports which had been made  to the company by these spotters:  I, ���* , do solemnly swear  that my home is in Fordyco, iu the  above county and state. That my  profession is that of a school  teacher, and that I have taught in  this (Dallas).county during the last  eight years. At some time about  the 30th of July, 1900, someone who  gave no name but said he' was' an  attorney -for the Cotton Belt .R. R.,  came to my house very early.in .the  morning of the above .date, and  called ��� me out to my gate. Said  party, stated to me, that. someone  .claimed he had been ejected frohva  passenger train on a certain day  mentioned, and had brought suit  against the company for damages.  Said attorney then-stated .to me  that a certain conductor of the said  Cotton Belt Railroad had given  him my name, as a passenger on  said train, which the party claimed  to have-been ejected from, and requested that ho see me, that I  would give him an affidavit that  .no one had been ejected from said  train. 1 told- said attorney that I  was not on ��� said train the certain  , day mentioned and could not give  him an affidavit. Said attorney  then asked-me" if I would make a  statement that Isaw.no one ejected  from the train the last time 1 rode;  that he was misinformed as to the  day. 1 told him T would. He then  wrote out a loug statement, read it  to me and asked rae to sign it. I  then asked him to let me read it.  Ho.hesitated.and then handed.it to  me. I found by reading it that it  contained much more in substance  than liad been read to me. Said  statement went oh to say that I  was on train pertain day mentioned.  That I Jboarded said train at For-  dyce and got off at Pine-Bluff, and  the afternoon of the same day returned to Fordyce. That I saw no  one ejected by conductor, that I  verified my statement by the' fact  I paid cash fare to the conductor  both going to and coming from Pine  Bluff. J then asked said party  why he did not read it all tome  and he stated the part which he did  not read was of no importance. I  then told him he had put a certain  date in said statement which I had  before said was not correct, and  that he had stated that I had paid  cash fare to the conductor to and  from Pine Bluff, which, in fact, I  had not been to Pine Bluff, and  that I always purchase*! a ticket  when' I rode, on train, never pay  cash fare to the conductor. Said  attorney then stated that no one  but the chief attorney for the road,  at St. Louis, would ever see said affidavit, and if I would sign it as it  was -written out he would pay me  fifteen (.$15) dollars. I then told  said' attorney that if he did not  leave my place I would get an offi  cer and have him arrested. He  then said, 'For God's sake don't do  that for I have a wife and children  and that would forever disgrace  them.' He then hurried away and  I have not seen him since.  It is but justice to the management of the road to say that as  soon as this evidence was laid before them by the committee, they'  immediately ordered the reinstatement of the dismissed conductors.

It would seem that the fact that  the snakes who were trying to1  manufacture evidence against the  conductors were put to such sore  straits-in-order���to-get-a^seoming-  case against them would' bo the  very best evidence to the company  of the faithfulness and integrity of  their employes.  It'.is. difficult to speak temperately on this subject. The men, as:  well as their methods, are the vilest  of the vile,:and they should not be  allowed to run at largo and prey  upon their fellowmen. Dishonesty  is dishonesty and none of us could'  offer excuse for any inisappropria-,  tion4of funds, but the worst kind,  of stealing is that which steals from  a man his good name and reputation ; and' wo repeat that a man  who will, for mere gain, or in order  to live without work, participate in  the making of false evidence or  false reports against another should  be tarred and feathered for the  first offense, and burned at the  stake for the second.  It is hardly necessary to indulge  in any comment on. the value of  evidence secured from a class of  human bieiugs who will, under any  stress of circumstances, or in the  hope of any reward, resort to  measuresso utterly vile and inexcusably contemptible as these.

The construction of the cottage  addition to the general hospital is  already under way, the excavations  for the foundation having been  done by days, labor. The contract  for the framework of the building  has been let to .Antoine- Pffeifer,  who is expected to start work on  the superstructure on Monday. The  building is to be completed as early  as possible to render available the  accommodation.  During the month of October the  number-of days  treatment given  patients was 850, thus constituting  a record for the institution and being about 200 days more than the  best previous month.   The hospital  has been crowded to its utmost capacity throughout tho month, and  a-number-of���patients-Avero-turned,  away because the management had  no room for thoir accommodation.  The completion of tho cottage will  materially relieve the congestion,  besides saving the directors the outlay for rent of rooms occupied by  the nurses in private residences.   It  is specially noteworthy that of the  patients treated during the  record  month 00 per cent were from  outside points.   The Nelson  patients  were for surgical  treatment,   the  ratio of those suffering from ordinary diseases such as typhoid being  remarkably   low.   ..No   contagious  disease is reported from any part of  tho city.  During the last week the new  operating table ordered from Chandler ��fc Massey of Toronto, was delivered at the hospital, it is being  set up and the water., connections  made. A ftill complement of surgical instruments has been purchased also and this department of  the hospital is quite as complete as  that of any institution in the province. During October operations  were conducted almost daily and  these were attended with universal  success.  UNITED STATES  ELECTIONS....
