A penknife was run into his left  eye and the sight destroyed.    Dr. Alexander Proudfoot, who was spending  the  summer in the  neighborhood, was r summoned   and   treated   the   ease,    ft wras  decided there was impossibility of thesight  being  restored,  and  the   eye  began  to  wither up.    The boy grew up and is now  a youth of seventeen  years.    Later the  injured eye.became inflamed, and it was  feared   tlie   other   eye    might   become  affected.     Dr.   Proudfoot's   professional  experience was again, sought, and he  advised . the -removal  of the useless eye as  .,the only sure way of preserving the other,  ." intact:;   This Avas agreed to, and the deli-  ' cato  task: entrusted, to.

Dr. Buller was at  once sent  for, and efforts haA'e since, been  made to  "save the sight of the injured  eye, but as  yet with only problematical "success.    At  best the sight can only, be  preserved  as  to ehablothc young niau  to  distinguish  light from darkness.  UTl��  ARRANGING THE TERMS OF THE  STREET  RAILWAY   FRANCHISE.

This refers particularly to partly  developed mining properties. Mr. Black-  stock bids Canadians, however, not to expect any such outpouring of unlimited  capital into Canada as occurred in the  case of South Africa and Australia. There  Avill, rather, be a steady development,  Avhicli is better.

St  NEGLECT OF TRANSPORTATION  A   NATIONAL   VICE.  ar  Peace Believed to be in Sight.  Associated Press.  London, April 29.���All the morning  papers today Avill contain editorials congratulating the United States upon the  prospect of peace in the Philippines, and  complimenting the braA*cry and endurance of the American troops, Avho haA*e  brought about the .much desired result.  All insist that the United States cannot  treat Avith the rebel government. All  approve the demand of general Otis for  anj unconditional surrender, and urge  that he should be given full poAver and  not be hampered by instructions from  Washington.  The Daily Mail says: "General Otis  has to deal with Orientals, and his polioy  nmst be used accordingly."  The Morning Post, Avhieh emphasizes  the danger of treating Avith the rebels,  says : "The Avay may be long, but the  adoption of a conciliatory policy is not  the method best suited to get to the end  of it."  The Standard says: "The rebels are  proper objects for clemency, but they  cannot be dealt Avith as apolitical entity.  No real friend of the Islanders would  Avish to see them all at ouce charged Avith  the task of working out their oavu destiny  on lines of pure autonomy."   ���  The Daily News thinks that a natiA'o  administration under supreme American  control, and even a native army "fortified" by a compact American garrison,  avou Id be the best solution.

Tokonto, April 28.���President Kemp of  the board of trade this afternoon   entertained at luncheon at  the National Club  a. number of prominent citizens and members of the government who   were passing through the city to   Brantford.    The  members-of parliament were  Messrs. Sifton   and  Tarte  and   D.   C.   Fraser.

Messrs.  Hugh Blain, Robert Jaffray, G.  W. Plavelle, R. Kilgour and others spoke  on  the  same line.    Mr.   Sifton,   in   the  course of his remarks, reiterated his opinion,  Avhieh  he  said  had been expressed j  publicly on many occasions, that the two'  greatest problems before the country was  the development / of the north Avest  and  concentration  of trade  therefrom.    Referring to British Columbia, he impressed  upon his hearers the  importance of the  mineral'wealth of that country.    There  was no doubt that Avith proper development they  might look to Kootenay district alone for an annual aA**erage production of minerals  of from  $50,000,000 to  $60,000,000.     With* such immense Avealth  everything should be done,to.-deyelpp.the  Avest and keep its trade for the Dominion.  Neglect of transportation Avas one of the  national ATices of Canada.    There ;Avas too  much jealousy between tlie vai'ious cities  aud sections, and as long as  that spirit  Ava-s. manifestedprogressAvouldiiecessarily  be sIoav.    Tliey could-not get along unless  they realized that the prosperity of one  city ���-���oi*" of one  section  of Canada  Avas  good for cA'ery other section or city.

The train consisted of fifteen  fTCJght cars, a baggage and a A-ery ancient combined plissengei' anil smoking  coach. From about the Center of tins  train a boxcar, laden with coke* had left  the rails, mid niter running about fifty  yards on the til's, hail jumped the track  altogether, aiid turned completely over,  and Was "lying on its top dhigonnHy down  the side of the embankment. T4i,0 body  of the cai' was apparently very little injured. The triii'ks were entirely clear of  the track, and whole, but the supporting  truss and air brake Machinery were ijom-  plet ly demolished. Tlie car before and  tliat behind the erratic car were not disturbed from their usual position, and not  a passenger realized that an accident had  occurred, Avhieh might, under other circumstances, have been so serious in its  results. In its present condition traveling on the Crow's Nest Pass railway is  not a A'ery hvviting pastime.  .

J It Avas no great mistake for the freight  handlers at the Grand Trunk freight sheds  to quit work when their Avages Avere down  So Ioav that their position could not well  be changed for the worse. The strike  failed, as. all strikes of unskilled labor  must fail. It was useless for the freight  handlers to appeal to the management's  sense of justice. Tho Grand, Trunk is  governed by a cold-hearted Yankee  meanness in its treatment of the ordinary  laborers on the systenvAvhieh the Canadian Pacific, with all its faults, neA-er  practised, saAre on the construction Work  on the Crow's Nest Pass. The freight  handlers were not to blame for striking if  they saAv a chance to get more than .$1.15  per day for the hardest kind of hard  work. The Grand Trunk avus too strong.  The men conducted themselves like law-  abiding Canadians. They can take comfort in their failure from the thought  that they are not likely to find a more  exacting or niggardly employer than the  Grand Trunk raihvay.  *S  *.*_    V^-WE ARE NOT ADVERTISING'    -   '---   ���  FISHING TAGKtE  This   season, it  is/ not tnecessary, everybody.  _=   ,    - knows that our.

He Avas a short, thickset man, with a  clear and piercing eye, his face shaved  "smooth, Avith not the suggestion of a  wrinkle; yet his hair Avas as Avhite as  snow. He had a slight Southern accent,  and his hearty manner of inviting the  ���visitors iu and his cordial hospitality  were wholly Southern. One of the visitors knew him, and had told the other  that here was a. man with a bona-fide  skeleton in his closet and that the skeleton had a story. It did not require any  persuasion to obtain a glimpse of the  skeleton. The owner presently led the  Avay to aii outhouse, and, opening'the  door, displayed the skeleton of a man,  badly fastened together, and hanging to  the Avail by the neck. The Missourian  did not  object to telling the story.  "That fellow," he said, motioning with  his thumb to the skeleton, "was onoe an  acquaintance of mine, and 1 liked him so  Avell"���this Avith a laugh���"that 1 havo  kept him by me ever since, so that 1 can  come out and stir him up whenever 1 feel  disposed," and he gave the skeleton a dig  in the ribs. "It Avas this way,", ho continued, closing the door on his acquaintance.

But hearing a shout, 1 glanced through a  bullet hole in the  shutter and saw them  driving my friend's horse up to a tree���a  fine old tree that I had planted as a boy.  One of tlie limbs crossed the drive and to  this   they fastened   the rope anil   drove  away, leaving my friend dangling there,  and  I   watching .the   operation  totally  helpless,  Avhile   they  were  looking   on.  Some United States  troops finally came  along jind drove them off and cut the  body down, and we  joined in the chase.  I hunted tho gang for weeks; then gave  it  up, as it was  evident that they  had  given us the slip.    After the Avar I moved  to  California-and   came   here.    1   soon  heard of a curious diameter who. lived  up in one of tlie ejinons the life of a hermit.   I neA'er connected his name Avith  Connor,  it being more or less common ;  but when he died one day the story avjis  tluit he had had a bad rocord back iu  Missouri���that ho had  been a murderer,  &e.���and it occurred to-me tluit it might  be my old enemy,  tlie man I had been  jifter for so many years.  "I can't say tluit I'have a particularly  revengeful disposition," said tlie skeleton  OAvner, "but he had murdered my friend,  and I had never given up the hope of  finding him'and Avas always on the lookout. Tlie old felloAV died Jilone and'home-  less, itseems, Avith no friends, and they had  buried him by the side of his hut. I  hejird of it a feAV days later and employ  ed some men to aid me in tlie investigation. Connor had a bad sabre wound  across the face, by Avhieh no one could  ever tail to recognize him, and when we  opened the grave there wjis the man,  while pjipers Avhicli lie left showed tluit  he was Connor. I had found him too  late to turn him over to the law, so 1  proposed to luing him where I could keep  tin eye on him for the rest of my life, and  iu my will 1 propose to leave instructions  that he shall be left hanging, dangling in  the wind, just jis he hung my friend. 1  luid his-skeleton prepared, jis no one  claimed him, and hung him upas a warning to any of his seed that might follow  in his footsteps."  The Platform Won the Tight.  The victory of nniyor Jones at the recent election in Toledo, Ohio, is more remarkable than at first appeared. Not  only did mayor Jones receive ji larger  vote than the Republican jmd Democratic candidates combines, but he received  more than double their combined vote.  The nuiyor Avhom the Republican convention, Jit the dietJition of tlie moneyed interests back of the machine, refused to  renominate, receiAred the Arotes of more  than tAVo-thirds of the Republicjins, and  ���more surprising still���of more than  tAvo-thirds of his old party opponents,  though they, too, had ji reguhir candidate  in the field.��� The total vote polled avjis  unprecedented]y large. In a city of little  more than a hundred thousand people,  OA'er tAventy-fiA-e thousand Azotes were  polled, of which the Republicjin and  Democratic candidates together received  7700 -votes,--.and   nniyor   Jones,   17,700.

One of the employees on the Blade  is said to lnive renuirked during the eain-  ptiign: "The Blade is Republican, but it  is the only thing in the ofiice that is, jind  it can't A'ote."

Ashcroft was approached recently  by tlio representatives of the tramway  company and asked to name a price for  the fifty-foot lot on the northeast corner  of Jiaker and Mall streets, upon which  several frame structures havo boon  erected. The price was given a.s $10,;H)(),  and is being considered by tho intending  purchasers.  "Tom " Houston and his associates in  the Crystal rink have made a deal for  tlie sale of the rink property which will  give them a neat margin upon their venture. The price paid for tho property  could not be learned definitely, but it is  reported to have been in the neighborhood of'$5000. The rink building, which  is 01 by I :"50 feet, covers six lots at the  corner of Stanley and Houston streets.  The purchase is supposed to be mixed up  in some, way with the tramway scheme,  but whether the building is to be used  by the tramway company or utilized as  some kind of a resort is not known.  There will be a "game of Hug-by football this afternoon at 3 o'clock, when  all who put in an appearance ^vill be  given a chance to play. '  .    .  The fruit ranchers and vegetable gardeners along Kootenay lake are getting  rather anxious about tlie backward  spring, a.s it increases the chance of high  water. There are upwards of a do/,en  ranches betAveen Nolson and Balfour, and.  should they be flooded out the loss would  aggregate as many thousand dollars.  Those "who are engineering the real  estate branch of the projected tramway  company's business Avill leave shortly* for  Victoria, where it is expected they will  endeaA'or to purchase a large slice of  Bogustown and other outside property.  ��� W. P. Tierney & Company will commence Avork on Monday on the job of  straightening out the Columbia, &,Koote-  nay line between Nelson and Robson  Avhen they will start a gang of thirty  men. The scale of wages upon tlie work  Avill be $2 per day, and board Avill be  supplied at $1 per Aveek. Tho number of  men will be increased so soon as the  work is laid out. J). O. LoAvis will be the  engineer in charge of tho "work. As the  work will require to be done so as not to  interfere Avith tho train service, it is difficult to say how long it Avill take to complete the contract.  . -Sheriff Tuck.- returned yesterday from  a,=ti'ip".to Cranbrook,"where  he.'sold, the  ��� general merchandise stock of Thomas���A.

Charles Leduc, -who AA'as brought in  "froni Robson on "Wednesday by provincial constable DesBrisay, was adjudged  insane by the medical men who examined  him, and afterwards committed to the  asylum at New Westminster by stipendiary magistrate Crease. Constable DesBrisay Avas sent to Westminster with the  prisoner, and to defray the expenses of  the trip was obliged to put up his oavu  money, there apparently  being  no  pro  vision by the provincial government for  advancing the moneyrequisito. Constable  DesBrisay will get the money back Avhen  he sends in his vouchors to the government. But what would happen in such a  case if the provincial constable commissioned for such a trip were not a  capitalist?  II.
