FURTHER PROGRESS STOPPED Colonel Baker's Tomb.
Fear has been expressed that
the Canadian Pacific would not be
able to find a practical crossing
over the Selkirk range o the Rock
ies, through Kicking Horse pass.
No effort nor expense to secure
the shortest and best route across
the mountain has been spared by
the company, as it is well known
that the company has been at
enormous cost keeping engineers
in the Rockies for two years mak
ing surveys and explorations with
views of securing the best route.
At this late hour when the track
has been laid far up the Bow river
pass, to within thirty-five miles or
so of the summit, it has been dis
covered that after all it maybe im
possible to cross via Kicking
Horse pass. Engineers arc on the
work in dispute. Some claim that
it is impossible to go that way and
avoid the crossing of the range by
Home's pass. In order to go via
Home's pass it will be necessary
to deviate considerably, and to do
so seven or eight miles of track
already laid would have to be
lifted. The engineers could not
come to any agreement, so they
were called in, and the matter was
laid before the general manager
and other officials. When it was
seen that there was but little pros
pect of an agreement among the
engineers on one route, and seri
ous consequences might result by
further prosecuting work this sea
son, when it was not definitely
known that that pass was feasible,
it was deemed best to stop all
work for two years, and orders
were accordingly sent out to that
effect. In the meantime the most
efficient engineers will be put to
work to ascertain the best route.
Several hundred laborers have
to Winnipeg. They state that all
the workmen, between 4000 and
5000 in number, have been dis
missed. Work on all sub-contracts,
many of which were let
quite recently, has also been
stopped. Many workmen had
been led to expect that they" would
be given work in the winter, in
consequence of the heavy work in
the mountains. It is expected
that two hundred will arrive daily
until the entire number is brought
to that city. The majority of them
belong to the United States and
will proceed there. All will go to
St. Paul first and many will re
The Laws of Trade.
Early in the present month says
the S. F. Chronicle, a letter was
published in an eastern journal,
stating that during the triennial
conclave a few ex-soldiers from
Pennsylvania, "who still retain
vivid recollections of the early
scenes enacted in the late war,
and especially the one which end
ed so disasterously to the Union
forces under the lead of the gal
lant Edward D. Baker, at Ball's
Bluff, Va., October 21, 1801, visit
ed his tomb, which is situated on a
commanding elevation in Laurel
hill cemetery.'' According to the
article thev found the monument
crumblinc- and covered with mold
r nnnared for, "the
bare, unkept ground lloweness
and void of any vestige of ever
green." The article aiso sum lu.u.
the party of visiting soldiers raised
a fund, which was sent to this city,
the interest of which was to be
used annually in keeping in order
and preserving Colonel Baker's
tomb". Inquiry among the vete
ran organizations of tiiis city fail
ed to disclose any knowledge of
such . fund. Just before last
Memorial duv a small sum was
supplied the cemetery authorities
for decorating the grave, and it
was all used and more with it for
thnf. mirnose. Thev sav that this
is the only monev they have re
ceived to decorate or keep the
tomb and plat in order. Recent
ly Colonel Baker's son died in
Oregou and the remains are to be
nro fnr interment in
Laurel hill. Then, perhaps, some
thins- will be learned of the fund
and what use has been made of it.
A Twin Story.
Henry and Alfred Groves of St.
Helens are twins, and look almost
exactly alike. Henry has a wife
living in Kansas, but he did not
let that interfere with his flirting
w:th Lettv Avery, the pretty
daughter of a neighboring farmer.
To test the depth of her love lie
"popped" the question and she
snapped him up like a gold two-and-a-half
piece, and before he
could stop her she acquainted tier
parents with the glad tidings; who
with business-like celerity named
the 21st of October as the time
for the wedding. Henry was in n
dilemma, but he made a clean
breast ol it to his twin brother,
Alfred, who with real fraternal sac
rifice, agreed to stand in the mar
ried brothers stead and wed the
Avnrr irl. Alfred plaved the
" J o -
deception so successful!' that he
married Miss Avcrv,she being un
der the impression that he was
Henrv. All went smoothly until
Alfred, who had learned to love
her and wanted her to return the
affection, told her of the decep
tion. She was indignant, left him
for her parents, and at last ac
counts Alfred was in this city hid
ing from an indignant father-in-
law. The East Portland I indica
tor in closing a column account of
this match says: "The Groves and
Averv families no longer visit
each other and a divorce case is
expected in that section of coun

is no guile. When he was in the
senate ho was distinguished for his
common-sense speeches, and it ap
pears from an interview recently
had with him that the old gentle
man is still in his right mind. In
Hartlord, the other day, u brother
Democrat asked him: "What do
you think of the prospects in '84,
Senator?" "Don't know." " ell,
aren't our prospects pretty
bright?" "Don't know." "Hasn't

yes." "What's the trouble then?"
"I'll tell you," said the senator,
pressing his thin lips together,

fools of themselves, and it has
never been infringed upon."

"TwenU'-three dollars for that

held up her hands in horror.
"But iron is down."
"I've seen in the papers during
the last month where as many as
six big iron companies have

stoves cheaper, and 1 know it."
"Madam, in the last two months

"Yes, poor things!"
"But are nursing bottles any
cheaper than three mouths ago?"
"N-o," she slowly admitted.
"Of course not, madam. The
laws of trade are immutable. The
best I can do is to throw in a horse
radish grater if you take the stove
at twenty-three dollars."
It was estimated that both
skilled and unskilled coolie labor
ers now receive from fifteen to
twenty-five per cent, more pay
than when the Restriction act went
into effect. During the scarcity
of farm laborers the past summer,
hop pickers have received twenty
five cents per hundred weight
more than last year, and harvest
hands received an increase of
twenty per cent. About the same
increase was asked by cigar
makers. The Chinese are report
