He was a wvll cil-ucattM man, alwut o hero, too, but ho is bclie%etl to be on the Pacific Coast now. tSeo. King sj-cciwd remittances regularly from J\is mother and he made a trip to fhigland to -see her eight years age. Drink was the bane of Cieo. King's life. As soon as he gatliered a little money together he would go out cm a sprue until he hud spent all. Then he would straighten up and go to work. Drink was rapidly undermining his constitution and after the last few sprees, ho biccania very Hiorose and it was told at the inquest thot after a spree sonw ntonths ago, he threatened to take his l.fe. tj^ng went back to the ranch sonio days ago after having been on a spree here. .'Vccording to the evjdonce, give.i by Fred A. Ewiiig, who o|>crates the Whi'tney ranch on shares, at the inquest before Coroner .1. D. Higin -botham. King had been unstrung:, sick .Tnd weak and was, continually talking about people pursuing hiui and he thought he could hear then talking. On 'i'hursday morning King prepared the breakfast as usual and Mr. Kwing loft at tt.30 o'clock to round up some horses on the ranoho. King soemt'd to be all right when he Ici't. He refurnetl to the house at 10 io"-clock. Xo one socmcd to fee about but on walking to the front of th. Iiouse, ho was astonished to rtn;l King lying dead, w-ith a rifle lying across h.s shins. Ho at onc� no>tiflc>l some men, who were across the river 'ind proceeded to l-othbridgc to notify the police' and the coroner. Dr. Cragg" examined the woun^ls and found that King hjxd shot himself through the mouth, the huMot coming out the back of his head, shattering the skull and exposing the brain. Death, ho said, was instantaneous. A search of the house revealed two �mvelopes. adilres-scd to his niothei*, Mrs. King, 43 .Sussex G�rdcn.s, London, England and his sister. Miss King, 7 BloomiVctd Avenue, S. C, road, Dublin Ireland.

DKATII AT MACLEOD. (From the Advance.) The death occurred at the General Hospital on Monday morning at about six a.m., of Jas. Carruthers, who had liecn suflering for some months from consumption.

Rogers was sununoncd to Uiandon on Saturday last, oving to the sudden death of her father, .1. C. Kyle, a respected citizen of that city for over 20 years. A. Winnipeg despatch says: Wm. John Kyle, aged 62 years, (ited very suddenly last, night from heart lailuiv. Dcoeafied was an old resident of this city and up to tlie time of his death lias enjoj'ed 'good health. He had just returned from a walk down town, and had gone to .'nilk the cow when be was seized with severe (wins in his, tmck and e.�-pirc result would not be so deplonAblc. btit unfortunately in the present instance the result of sprDading the runtor we have taken tin* tr"t�blhrieN hud a ntost lU-ioyable trip to the north la�t week Ho wont as far afi Chlpman on the C'aitadian Northern, ea�t of Edinon -ton, where ho sfient a day with Mr. Kirkpatrick, former C.P.R. station ugcnt hero. 'Hie ivports Mr. Kirkpatrick being the chief mogul in the jdace. Ho still has a high regard for Lethbridge and vlshed to Ims warhil.v remembered to friends hare. Mr. Humphries says all the -�ld Ix>thbridge people he met, otill cling to the opinion that Ijclhhridgo is the best place in Alljerta. The impression everybody possesses in that Lethbrilienson. I'hc evidence of the father at the inquest tells tite storj*. He testified that he had purchascil bottle of whiskey on Monday, Oct. (Kh, and on going to bed htad placed it under his pillow. In the morning he took a drink from the bottle and went to sleep again. When call�i some time later Ijy his wife, itho child who hod slept in the suinc iwl with hint was drinking out of the bottle. Uc took it away from the iboy, corked it, ami threw it under tJte bod. Witness had his brmikfast and went to work. During the forenoon he was sent for by. his wife and as soon as he renchod homo he telegraphed and '(>honed for Dr. Simpson. The doctor arrived alraut noon and remained'until eight or n'm: o'clock at night. The boy died about half past five next morning. The verdict of the jury was .is follows: "In our opinion Charles Stephenson dl�l through misadventure, the cause of death hong acute alcoholism caused by drinking u quantity of whiskey. We at'tucli no l>laim to, anyone." ON STRIKE VEr No Sign of Sfttlcmciit of Fernie Trouble Yet., Michel, Oct. in.-Tbe strike si-Uiition rennvlns tutchungvil.

Fernie Free Press.-The strike .s now at the close of its fourth week and the ond is not in sight. Duriitg the past wx>ek the situation has changed vcrj- little, and nothing of an intportant nature has occurred. Wtn. Dicken resitfiied his position us president,of the local union owing to the agitation of the radical wing against his action in show.ng tip President Sherman in tho public press. Dicken's plea was that he had bcin refused a hearing at tho proper time and place and had to have recourse to-other means. W. H. Moore, leader of the socalist party in the city, was elected president in his place. President Sherman has not ^ot taken the public .nto his confidence in dcn>4ng or discussing the charges made against him by Dicken, und considerable disappointment has been felt by his friends that he. should allow the opportunity of vindicatiug himself to pass hy. Another matter which is the cause of much spoc.i -lation on the part of the public, and no doubt on tho purt of the ;i*in-ers as well, is the apparent apathy of President Mitchell. Has he boon fully acquainted with all^ the facr.s connected with tho srtitke and what is he going to do about it? arc questions frequently astaed. If Sherman has been 'indiscreet in calling this strike, as the public genomlly believe he would. nattirally want to hide his error from his chief fin the vnin hope that a settlement might be inade be-' fore is w-as discovered. In tho meantime Mr. Dicken's stutcinent ;8 re -ceivjng a good deal of consideration and whatever may be the opinion us to his action in giving it to the public its veracity attacked. The union officials have let "-on tracts for the supplying of food du.--ing the str.ke. Many men ana still leaving the camps and it is not improbable thnt four or five hundred have already gone. The C.P.R. are bringing in two cars of coal per day for coa.^.ng purposes. So fur theiv has not 'been any serious shortage for domestic purposes, but there is no certainty of the supply keeping up.
