H. Stevens, Editor.  VANCOUVER, British Columbia, JUNE 16, 1911.  No. 6  Sewerage System  The  $750,000  by-law  for the  installation  of  sewers in the city was passed last Saturday and  ~we should now witness considerable1'activity in  this line. ' i  A careful observation of the various districts  of the city reveals certain very* pressing needs.  There are three sections which are in 'a most dangerous condition. In fact, without desiring to bo  classed as an alarmist, we are forced' to admit  that these conditions are critical.  One district lies between Glen Drive and Vie-'  toria Drive and south of the big Great' Northern  \\ cut.   This section is naturally drained bv "China  Creek" and is known>by" that aamc.   It is very  closely built up  and  the overflow from septic  tanks are creating dangerous conditions.   Tlie suggestion has been made, ny Aldermen representing  the district, to put in all the lattprril sewers and  let them empty- into aw open sluice' drain down  China Creek, wh'ch "would answer until the engineer was prepared to sav how lnrsr������������ the main  trunk should be.   It" is difficult to decide- thisi latter point until South Vancouvcrdetermines what  amount of sewerage they want to pass* through  this'main.   In.th'swav it would be possible to  I provide early relief, otherwise it would be ,de-  llayed for perhaps two year*.; with, fatal results. <  The second district, is that s&tidii^ihg- north  of the Great Northern, .cut and, b%ji;lepii, Cljwrke  Drive and "Nanainw''streets.*- j.The venditions in  ���������>certain; parts of this section are,'awful and( de-,  mand immediate attention. " '7,7 7., ,- *    "    ���������..'  The third section is Kitsilano and i*'similar in  topography to. that of the China Creek> district���������  ^with a possible corresponding solution. ,  These three districts are'undoubtedly'4 of vital  [importance, but it does not lessen'the" crying need  ]of D. L. 301 and Hastings T. S. or oi'Other Smaller  (sections. However,' it will not be possible to give  [relief to all parts of the city, but great care .should  [be exercised to appropriate the/funds so as* to.  [obtain the best results.

Stevens in the  Fire Department investigation, but proved a poor  witness' owing to the remarkable lapse of memory  on all vital points.  Mr. Armour took up the sixty, odd, letters  whieh had passed between the Chief and the Seagraves Company���������these were, by the way, only a  few of the most important of the mass of correspondence between the Chief and the Company���������  and.asked pertinent questions on all important  points, but, as already stated, the Chief had forgotten a great deal, or else had corresponded on  matters of which he had no knowledge because  his/stock answer was, "I dunno." '"  /.In-answer to a question-the Chief stated he had  first seen auto apparatus about four years ago,  Avhen East on a visit (in the States, of course),  andibad, conceived the idea of getting some for  Vancouver. r \  1 t-Tfre, first piece of apparatus, he said, was a' La  i Franc/ but had not been in touch with it since;  He1 had^met Mr. Browning, Seagraves' agent,  prior to'this, had purchased a eity service truck  , from him.: He stated that Seagraves ware not  at tw^time making auto apparatus.   He then  , got \inYtouch with" his former friend Browning,  and tfie:result was an order for an auto chemical  afuf two hosV wagons.J ��������� ������~  The Chief then admitted that he had talked  over the specifications for these with Browning,  as he, the Chief, had had no experience in that  "'line, but-that Browning had prepared his-own  "' specifications when Be tendered?"    * 7^~'J '  As a coincident it might be remarked that for  several years prior to this time the Merryweirther  agent' in Vancouver, Mr. MacFarlane, had been  urging the Chief to get auto apparatus, y ��������� r' ������������������  The Chief, in answer to further question, re  the aerial truck, stated that the specification* officially filed were not his; he could not say Where'  they,came from. He denied that.Browning had  gone Over/the specifications with him prior to  openipg of tenders, in spite of the written stbte-  ment to that effeet in-a-letter.   -The.Chief Dben  , stated that King (civic auto expert)' and hinapelf  had i>repar#d a set of specifications; these cajped  4or twoseiMfate items, ail aerial truek and a asse'  wagon.. ,TH,"1'Ieinfyweather,'>put in a bid^on  each, $10,000 for aerial truck,and $6,900 for hose  a fhjht to get this, as the $6,023 was quite an item  in favor of the English machine." , Asked regarding; whom he had the fight with, he stated "the  CoUncil," some alderahen not wanting to pay such,  a price, but he (the Chief) wanted Seagraves to  get1 it, and he had difficulty in getting his way.  'The contract called for delivery within 120  days, but they actually ran over this by three  months. The contract also had a $5 per day  penalty clause. When asked why this was not  enforced, the Chief replied, "that it was not his  business." He could not explain, however, the  frequent mention of this clause in both his letters  to Seagraves and their letters to him.  In one of Browning's letters to the Chief he  states "it will be impossible to get construction  in that time." In reply the Chief states-that he  "knew it was impossible, but he put it in just to  stir therti (the bidders) up a little." There seemed tp b������ a-tacit understanding between them that  such a trifle as $5 per day for three months, or  some $450, should not be considered.  Replying to a question as to why he had' written', to Phillips, stating he' was going to get some -  auto apparatus and the suggestion that they go  over the specifications, he stated' he only wished  -Phillips? advice as, he (the Chief) knew little  about it. ,   _  Y>2lfr. Armour sprung a surprise on the court"  when he suddenly asked the Chief, "Did yon  know that .this truck for which you paid $17 500  was passed ^ through customs here' at a sworn  valuation of $8,000, with $2,300 duty, making in  all $10,800?"   The Chief aaid he knew, nothing  about it aa Seagraves' agent haid Cleared it,   flte  was then asked if this discrepancy of over $6,000  between the pri^e the city paid and- the sworn  invoice, price had /any relation to the $6,024 men-  tionedrinhis letter to Black as being the cause <������f  difficulty in getting through the tender, .Here*  plied. "None what&Ver."   He^eonld, not explain  {HY Did'not. consider it was,.any of his: business  -a* the eity-had bought for a laid down price. +. ,  , - When;shown a letter Jn which Browning said:  ^Kpwyai!?f., 1 tttnk we;Bar;b1������tte>^*orfctK������r ?  deal a^little^differently fro* t*fej'li*^telC������&  H  Imperial Conference  The "World," which claims the proud distinc-'  tion of being the sole organ of the Liberal Party  in Vancouver (as well as being the exponent of  the views of Mr. Pettipiece & Co.), has an editorial,  dealing with the Premier's attitude on Imperial  matters at the Conference of the Empire in London. The article is strongly anti-Imperialist and  might be classed as anti-British.  "Whether British public opinion is on the whole  with or against Sir Wilfrid Laurier, or is divided,  we do not know that it is any concern of Canada's," says the World. In other words/ the  writer of the article wishes to convey the idea that  it is no concern of the British people what views  are held by Sir Wilfrid Laurier. 7 / ' '-1  Again, "We are inclined to think/however,  that it will not be merely the French-speaking  people of Canada who will approve the position  of Sir Wilfrid in objecting to the proposal tllat  the colonies be consulted on such matters as the  Declaration of, London.'' We i presume, this -is  given with authority and that it ia true-that the  "French-speaking Canadians are opposed" to the  Imperial defence scheme, etc., It also reveals the  reason for Sir) Wilfrid's anti-British' actions .at  the Conference: 4 '   Y'   JV-.  "It is one thing," says the World; "for Canada  to support, when occasion arises,- the /Imperial  arms with men and munitions,of in in, ism ling  to herself tha right to decide tht ooeitlbn; it is  quite another matter, however, to commit Canada  to obligations which must end in an assessment  \<ti  Ia  V        -V   ,'������������*        <A  ,Y>  r i  ���������     -    -OA\t\  4t\r  lu',  ,���������������  hVi  11 '^l  '��������� i' rV  tf>i������  iAiy  >'!<?*  kkoli\  -^Lijtt  <*,  wagon, but thp Scagravaa 4in������ putin-a>ulkp|a������^:vi|l'  der ot$22,523 for both.

"J'dunno," waa. about ttfe only'answer  obtainable.^ Pressed for an answer/said, perhaps  BrowUing had split them. He finally admitted  that Browning knew what* the Merry weather's  tender was;before he split his so as to come under  them. >''x''  Chief admitted tbat Merry#eather hose wagon  came nearer" to his specifications -than the Seagraves, but still he. recommended the Seagraves.  Browning had had an opportunity to get his "bid  under the \XMerryweather on the" hose wagon,  whieh gave him the advantage.  Chief then stated that although the Seagraves'  aerial'was $7,500 higherjhan the Merrywea^ej^  h&#������lt fce,<|id right to"accept"it." '  -''^Teased to explain the difference, he stated~that  the Seagraves truck had facilities" for carrying  extra ladders which -were handy. He insisted  that he preferred it at double the price.  When asked had he ever had experience with  any'other make of apparatus than Seagraves,-he  answered, "Never." Had he ever seen a Merry-  weather t "Never." Had he ever assisted to  operate any Other make? "Never." Was his experience limited entirely to Seagraves?   "Yes."  When pressed to give an opinion on the relative  value of the Merryweather and the Seagrave, he  stated that he was not competent to judge, that  he knew nothing about their value from a structural standpoint. He attached the greater value  to Seagraves because of personal preference only.  / AldV. Ramsay at this point interjected; a question:: "Did'the Chief always keep* in view the  city's l>cst.interest when buying apparatus?"  With reniarlcable alacrity he replied, "Always/  Hissole object being to protect the city." This  answer, was received with nods of approval by  those who are anxious to protect the Chief. 7  .When/questioned as to what extra equipment  the .Seagraves truck actually carried, he replied  that it had several extra service leaders, 50, 30,  20 feet long, a life Lhet and sOmesmair axes/etc.  Akked as to value, could not say. He; thought it  saved ah extra service truck. Asked value of this,  stated aboiit $2,500. He admitted that the value  in this was chiefly taken Up in the vehicle.  ; Questioned regarding his letter to Black/ the  president of Seagraves, where he said, he (the  Chief) hais pledged himself to Phillips (Seagraves'  agent), and that he had worked in harmony with  Mr/ Browning, he meant he had only wished to  get TPhillips this territory. He could not say  why the contract had been made out to W. E.  Seagraves, Walkerville, Ont., and the apparatus  built7*t Seagraves & Col, Columbus, Ohio./ He  did7 not'think they were the. same coihpany".

Hhe hss offset tbe possible loss of the defence  of Britain by laying the foundation of closer political relations with America.

Asked re an unpaid hotel bill at Minneapolis, he  explained that he was the guesMf the,,genial Mr.  Browning, and had supposed he, Browning,' had  paid the bill. He also stated he had assisted in  the.demonstration of Seagraves' apparatus in Toronto. -  The Chief further admitted that King went to  Seattle and New Westminster to demonstrate Seagraves' apparatus. ;/   ���������  Replying to some leading questions by his solicitor, Mr. Craig, the Chief said he preferred a  ���������Seagraves machine at 'any-price^ Ile-believed-    * i^ji ^^J^^  ���������w^y .���������A.������ ���������nnA    v.t u������j ������������..������- ���������������������������., - vc���������_~       the reins of government.

NO MORE 880? U09NSM.  The investigation of the Fire Department ad--  ministration has been needlessly delayed. The alleged reason being the absence of Mr. Craig at  Victoria. This would not, however, have prevented holding of sessions on [Monday evening  and Thursday evenings. It is distinctly in the  public interest that; this investigation should proceed. We dp not ask favors, but believe that we  are entitled to a square deal. All we have had to  say has been spoken openly and above board,  and if the investigation is conducted fairly we  shall confine ourselves to comment on the evidence presented, but if the matter is to be dragged along indefinitely, so that the thread of the  enquiry is lost, we purpose using, the medium of  this sheet to expose still further abuses/ y  Tlie Customs Fraud. y  Seagraves.Company held a contract with/the  City of Vancouver for an aerial truck ata[pri������'e  of $17,500 f. o. b. Vancouver. The apparatus was  built in Columbus, Ohio, and shipped to the order  of the Company here. It was "cleared, and a certified invoice, and also a sworn ..statement/ stated  that "The fair selling of the apparatus in the  United States was $8,000, and that the selling  price to the City of Vancouver wiis $8,000. The  duty charged was, according to official statements,  $2;800, making $10,800, to which must .be added  freight, approximately $100,.or a grandTtotal cost  of the machine laid down in Vancouver, freight  and'duty paid; of $11,200. Now, then, a pertinent  question is, "Where is the difference,7 $6,300?"  Some say that it is profit to Mr. Browning; the  agent. "What! a profit of 6,300. over'.and. above  manufacturer's profit, on a machine costing  $11,200? It is preposterous. If that is the case,  then,the contention of the "Gall" that the city  was paying $6,000 too much is' justified.    ,_  - The Board of License Commissioners decided oot te  grant any further shop licenses. In this they have the  support of a large body of citizens. Several largely  signed petitions were presented requesting that no further shop licenses be granted as they were considered s  menace to the public welfare.  The Commissioners deserve commendation for their  action in this regard.  EXHIBITING INDECENT PICTURES.  Straube received a sentence of six months for" exhibiting indecent pictures in slot machines in his  shooting gallery on Cordova streeet. ���������.  Magistrate" Shaw deserves the highest commendation for his prompt action in this and other cases.   The  ; practice of exposing indecent pictures is becoming too  flagrant in this city and a sentence such as the foregoing  will have a tendency to curb those inclined that wav.

Dr7 Whiting of London and Mr. Ezra  Hunt, condemning the ne temere decree, was put.  Then the big gathering broke into "God Save the  King" and applauded tumultuously.

McCROSSAN,  City Electrician.  tb oppose it from the standpoint of a  patriotic Canadian looking after the  interests of his country. It now ap;  pears that Mr. Allison's little trip  cost something like fiften thousand  dollars and he is asking reimbursement from certain citizens of Montreal for his patriotic motives.  Some days ago a meeting of the  Board of Trade was held at which the  question was brought up. .One member asked if fifteen thousand dollars  was not .rather a large amount for so  short a trip, and whether it would not  be advisable to ask Mr. Allison for'  some sort of an accounting instead of  the general lump sum statement he  had placed before them. It also appeared tb be the impression of the  Board of Trade that Mr. Allison had  undertaken the journey on his own responsibility and had not made any suggestion as to reimbursement prior to  his departure for the American capital. It has also transpired since, that  Mr. Allison 1b interested in a small  water power development at Wadding-  ton, N.Y., which would not be worth  developing were the Long Sault plans  to go through. It was therefore decided to offer Mr. Allison five hundred  dollars as Montreal's share of the fifteen thousand aud in the future fight  their own battles. It is not likely that  there will be any more opposition to  the Long Sault from Montreal any  *ray, as, upon investigation, it has  been fonnd that the proposition will  benefit rather than damage the port  of Montreal.  crimes committed, together with general contributions, brings the total up  to $5,000,000. While the plan by  whicii it is proposed to wipe out this  wasteful ^ expenditure and at the same  time eliminate the tramp problem has  never been tried in this country,' it  has proven so successful abroad that  there is no doubt as to its efficiensy  here. It proposes to establish sime-  where in the country a tramp farm  colony to which vagrants can be sent  and where the products of their labor  will be used toward their maintenance.  The professional hobo for whom work  has no attractions will doubtless give  the province a wide berth, while those  sent to the farm* will be given an opportunity to become useful citizens.  The most successful of these colonies  abroad actually makes money, and it  is believed that a similar result could  be accomplished here; The matter is  now before tbe Legislature in the form  of a bill providing for the acquirement  of the necessary land and within about  one minttte after Ita passage there is  certain to accur the greatest tramp  exodus ever known.  MONTREAL THINK8 LONG. 8AULT  FIGHT EXPENSIVE.  (From our own correspondent.)  Montreal, June 5���������Patriotism costs  money and money talks. This time  money ls asking questions. Last winter the Mil of the Long Sault Development Company, seeking power to dam  the 8t Lawrence river at the Long  8auhYrapids.near Cornwall, came up  for a hearing before the Committee  on Rivera and Harbors of the United  States Congress. Mr. J. Wesley Allison, of Morrlsburg, Ontario, went to  Washington, it was understood here.  A TRAMPLE88 PROVINCE.  There is a gloom among' the members of the ancient if not royal order  of tramps, for plans are now under  way to make Quebec the first tramp-  less province in the country and to  change it from the paradise of panhandlers, which it now is, to a territory to be shunned by every professional hpbo. Of 200,000 tramps in the  whole country figures show that about  20,000 of this army of peclal parasites  are always to be found in this state  and about 10,000 in this city alone.  Moire than 11,000,000 a year is spent  for the maintenance of this army in  jails and other institutions, while the  cost of the damage to property and  Thomas Bengough, the well-known  Canadian shorthand reporter, humorously refers to some of the trials of  the professional reporter as follows:  There are very many miserable  miseries under the sun; but the stenographer deserveth the greatest commiseration.

Many of  the queen's most treasured possessions are hot from a money's point of  view specially valuable, or when they  are of great value the queen prizes  Suits Specialty  Terms reasonable j them not for that reason, but rather  on account  of  the  associations  connected with such treasures.  For example, Her Majesty has in her  possession a chain of pearls presented  to her on her marriage by the women  of twenty-three counties, which,  though it is extremely valuable, is  treasured by the queen altogether on  account of the pleasong circumstances  under which the necklace came into  her possession. ������6,000 was subscribed  to buy the necklace, but only ������5,000  was actually expended on it, and the  balance of the money, at the queen's  request, was distributed among a number Qf charities. The queen wears  these pearls very frequently.  A shawl and Bible, accepted by Her  Majesty from the. late Mrs. Gladstone,  are certainly among the queen's qiost  cherished gifts. In the Bible Her  Majesty lias recorded the birthdays, of  each of her royal children, and- the  sacred book is one of her possessions  which the queen always has with",her  wherever,.she,,may be staying.  The queen's boudoir in the personal  apartments at Buckingham Palace  will -be one of 'the most charming and  interesting., rooms, in the palace,, for  Her Majesty JntfndsT''to ^ gather together in, this apartment''the greater  part of ^er personal treasures which-  she moat' prizes and which' hitherto  hayg been kept at Marlborough House  and York Cottage.', For example, the  fifty original drawings which the  queen received as a wedding present  froin.,^he Society of .Painter Etchers,  -wbiciL, if ^certainly 'one* "of*;-Her  Majesty's most,treasured possessions.

Hitherto  twenty-five of the,drawings were kept  at York Cottage and twenty five' at  Marlborough House.  .Perhaps thejmost treasured possession in Her Majesty's possession is  the collection of the early -letters  written to her by the Prince of Wales,  the Princess Mary and Prince Albert,  when their rqyal' highnesses were in  the nursery at Marlborough House;  childish little letters they are, written  so carefully in large round handwriting. Their purport was mainly to  put forward some request for a gift,  a doll or a steam engine, or something  similar in the way of toys which the  writer had taken an especial fancy  for, or sometimes the letters from the  royal nursery would be to supplicate  for a day at the zoo, or an afternoon  at a cricket ' match. Occasionally,  they would contain a petition for a  reprieve from a punishment that was  to be inflicted for some violation of  the discipline of the nursery schoolroom.  All these early letters of the royr.l  children are carefully preserved in  an old bureau of exquisite workmanship, given to Her Majesty by King  George shortly after the birth of the  Prince of Wales. The envelopes containing these missives are directed to  "Motjher," and used -to be. left in the  queen's boudoir at Marlborough House  by the head nurse who was then ln  charge of the royal nurseries.  Another treasure which Her  Majesty very greatly prizes is a finely  executed piece of embroidery work  .which makeB a very pretty cover .for  a small table. It^was presented; to the  queen some few yeara ago by the  Princess ;Mary, arid was worked by  "Her Qoyal Highness. .The princess  has since done many pieces of" embroidery which have been, sold M various bazaars and other charitable entertainment,^ but the piece in question  "VaB the first '���������complete piece of embroidery work-done ��������� hy   ,He'r    Royal'  Highness.--          " A gift which trill tsertainly find a  place' In the queen's boudoir at Buckingham Palace���������for it ls������one of Her  Majesty's" s'p'efclal treasures���������is .t^e  set ~df������Siniature "paintings of the four  eldest royal children, painted by Mrs!

The  bookcase contains eighty volumes of  English standard works, each finely  bound in dark "red leather, and  stamped with a York rose. The total  cost of this gift was 120 guineas,  which was entirely made up of penny  and farthing subscriptions from the  donors. It was presented to the  queen on behalf of the London school  children by Lady St. Heller.  Queen Mary bas, of course, an enormously valuable collection of jewels,  but Her Majesty's favorite Jewels and  those she most frequently wears, are  tbe diamond brooch which was the  king's first present to the queen, and  the diamond necklace presented to her  by Queen Victoria.  The last mentioned was given to  Queen Mary when Her Majesty went  to afternoon tea to Buckingham Palace  the day after her engagement to King  George.  **************************   ****#***************9***9*  *  *  Woman's Bakery Goods  Bread) Cakes ' Pastry  ������> /  Groceries  Fruits, Vegetables, Canned Goods, Fresh Eggs j  and Butter.

Harford  Montreal, May 14.���������-With increasing  | knowledge of the effect of the recently  adopted frontage assessment for city  street improvements the opposition to  it has very largely   died   out.     One  principal reason for this Is the fact,  at first not realized, that the bylaw  makes no provision for the exemption  of churches or any religious or other  properties from their share    of   the  cost.   It has long been felt In Montreal  that the enormous church and   other  exemptions have been an   oppressive  burden upon the tax-paying    public,  and this move to escape from part of  it has proven decidedly popular, save  with the- organizations, whtch will be  given the novel experience of sharing  in the expense of the public weal.

TO TAP  PEACE RIVER.  A proposal has been made by the Board oi Trade of  Vancouver,to appeal to the Government for the construction of a railroad from Vancouver northward; to  tap the great Peace River Country.   Such a line wou'd  probably take the route through the Pemberton Mead-  j ows and up the Fraser Valley, past Quesnell. touching  | Fort George, thence north easterly to the great valley  ofthe Peace River.  This project is absolutely essential to the proper  and equitable development of Vancouver. Hundreds  of families arc flocking into the great valley which is  destined to be one of the greatest wheat centers of  the whole Dominion, and Edmonton is how the main  source of supply in spite of the fact that-Vancouver is  much closer.  thus Vancouver, cannot expect to be connected by  route for many years.  The Canadipn Northern comes down the Thoml  and taps but little of this vast country, so that, \1  Vancouver is the natural outlet, for lack of transpj  tion we are absolutely side-tracked and Edmontor  the whole field.  . ..The main difficulty to contend with is the unwil  ness of Hon. Richard McBride and his cabinet t<  dertake any further railway projects until the pr  Canadian Northern undertaking has been compl]  It is generally felt,.-however, that if sufficient ex  sion of public opinion is given, that the Governj  will recognize its importance and accept the rel  sibility.

But how the report startles  us, that a man after fighting the battle of life for over one hundred years  has to end his days in a poorhouse!  The despatch, further stated that the  old gentleman had a son of seventy?  five and two grandsons of over fifty  living In the same County.   Naturally,  the reader would think it strange that  so; sad a course could have been necessary.    But if,  the inner   history  were known, it would probably be re-,  vealed tbat the son and grandsons are  ���������In almost aa bad a plight as the old  man, and that be preferred tp.go to  the poorhouse rather than to add to  their burdens.   The case is a pathetic  one,. but it is not unique���������you bear of  such every day���������and the whoJ|e story  emphasizes how terrible is an old/age  of penury, and how important, it ia  ,tbat we should regard youth! "as the  springtime which soon departetfa^and  wherein" we ought to plant and. sgw all  provision for a long and bapj^ilfjs/1.  If the old gentlenian had bcen^in re-.  ceipt of a Canadian Government.An^  nutty of only $100, his presence^ tp. the  home of the son or, grandson^ would  have been a boon rather than, a bar-'  den^ and the cosy-corner would, no  doubt have been kept for him.. He  may .have been a sober and .industrious youth, but he.bad no system of  investment which was sbsolotelj sals, I  and which would yield bim a bountiful,  return for tbe amounts which h* JMjgl>t>  from time to time save; and so his.  money ,was, spent of lost as fcst 99  it was earned.   But there Is no such  excuse3 for .the boys, or girls, astm. ,pr  womeo^g^Cansd* to-dgy, far hy tbe  6ansdb|S) _dbvemment Annates Act  which their savings will be taken care  of and invested by the Government,  and under which they will receive a  return larger than it would be possible to secure from any other safe investment, because when the Annuity  begins each payment absorbs a portion of the purchase money as well  as of the interest thereon, and if the  Annuitant lives tbe average number  of years he may' be expected to live, I  he will get back all that he had paid  in with accumulated interest at 4 per  cent.

To the Editor of the Western Call:  Sir,���������In- thev issue of the Dally Province for May 29th, the following item  appeared in the budget of news that  is handed in every week regarding, the  happenings in Roman ^Catholic circles:  - "An   Interesting  story,   Illustrating  the zeal of the Catholic priest In. attending to sick calls,, came from Revelstoke, where Father McNeill, formerly  of Vancouver, is at present stationed.  A young man met with a Bhooting accident at Golden, about 100 miles distant. .Father .McNeill chartered a special train to reach the wounded mart,  but .when about 15 miles from Revelstoke, the engine fouled the- metals.  Three,hours later, a second locomotive .arrived,    which Father McNeill  boarded, and re-started on his errand  of mercy.   At Cambre. .however, the  engine .was, pulled up owing to an obstruction on the line, .but after some  delay the engine, waa able to proceed,  and the enterprising priest succeeded  in getting to the bedside of the wounded man and heard his confession."  8���������CALL'    s   N t     .

Near Lauretta, [ J  the engine left tbe rails, and Father  McNeill got on one of the engines  used aa a pusher on the hills and  went on to Golden.   The amount for  the train was put up by the uncle ot  the wounded man. assisted no doubt  by the other members ot the bridge  crew.
