Quarrel Among Italians Results
in Shooting of Gabriole
Cozza.
Frank Amantao, an Italian,
was arrested Sunday, at Morrissey, on a charge of murdering u
fellow Italian named Gabriole
Cozsa.
It appears that an Italian store
in the Morrissey townsite is the
usual place of meetiii;; for Italians on Sunday. Lust Sunday
quite a number had congregated
at this store in the afternoon
and about 5 o'clock some dispute
arose amoug then, in which the
prisoner and the murdered man
were mixed up. This dispute
led to a scrap inside of the store
and when order was restored,
through the influence of some of
the Italians present, at half past
five, the prisoner, the deceased
and a number of others left the
store with the intention of returning to the Carbonado mines,
where they all reside and work.
A few minutes after leaving
the store the dispute which arose
inside the store was renewed and
the renewal resulted in the deceased putting his hand in his
pocket and pulling out a knife.
Seeing this, the prisoner, Frank
Amantao, drew his revolver.
The deceased turned and ran and
as soon as he did this Frank
Amantao fired three shots and
dropped him
Not content. Amantao ran and
fired two more shots at his head
as he lay prostrate. After this
the deceased never moved.
In the midst of the excitement
which ensued H. Bugbie and J.
Cameron, two residents, forced
their way through the crowd,
seized Amantao, disarmed him,
made him their prisoner and
took him to the lock-up.
Those who have seen the locality, say that the course of the
deceased, when running away,
can be traced with the drops of
blood which followed the first
shot.
An inquest will be held immediately by deputy coroner Bleas-
dell.
At the termination of the inquest on Monday into the death
of Gabrielle Cozza, the jury returned the following verdict:
"We find that Gabrielle Cozza
came to his death on Sunday,
the 10th day of December, 1905.
at the town of Morrissey Mines,
between the hours of 5 and li p.
m., from a gunshot wound in
the head inflicted by Frank
Amantao.''

THERE is no doubt prosperity Is general in Southeast
Kootenay, and that the people
of the district have more faith in
the future than over before. The
attention of the home-seeker is
being directed to the agricul
tural lands in this vicinity. The
attention of capital is also being
directed to the lumbering and
mining resources tributary to
this city, with the result that
important industries ot large

which will bring success and
profits from investments,

PLAN BIG M1RGIR
Mines and Smeltsr Will Merge
About January let.
James Cronin, manager of the
St. Eugene mine,returned Sunday
from his trip to Montreal and
Toronto. He was east on business
in connection with the proposed
amalgamation of the St. Eugene
interests with those of the Trail
Bmelters. The St. Eugene
directors have voted for such a
consolidation, the action of the
smelter directors in the matter
is now awaited. Mr. Cronin says
that it is expected tbat the Le
Roi will come into the combination effected between the War
Eagle and Centre Star, but that
it will take some time to bring it
about. The regular annual
meeting of the St. Eugene will be
held on Thursday, February 27
th. in Toronto, Perhaps by that
time the big merger will be
complete.
There are now 250 men on the
St. Eugene payroll, and at least
50 more will be put on shortly.
This is payday at the mine 120,000
will be distributed.
The new hoist has been
shipped bnt hss not yet arrived,
although it is expected at any
time.
Lead is soaring around the £17
mark and the lead bounty is off
for the time being, Silver also
commands a good price with
every prospect of going still
higher. Unprecedented prosperity seems to be in store for
tbe silver-lead camps.—Moyie
Leader.	
Hardening Copper,
United States Consul General
W. R. Holloway, Halifax, Nova
Scotia, has reported: It is stated
that Mr. A. M. Church and Mr.
Charles Cleveland, of Chester,
Nova Scotia, have discovered the
long lost and much sought for
process of hardening copper. A
sample of their hardened copper
has been received here which
seems to be as hard as steel,
a penknife failing to make any
impression on it. Later the
same consul wrote: Referring
to my former report, I have to re
port tbat since then Mr. E. C.
Church has received a rasor made
of their hardened copper, with
which one can shave. Having
been made in a blacksmith shop
the razor is necessarily orude, but
the blade is hard and carries
a sufficiently hard edge to remove
superfluous hair. The elder Mr.
Church writes tbat by the process
mentioned tbe metal can be hardened to any degree. A United
States tlrm hss written regarding
the discovery. Mr. Cleveland is
expected in Halifax In a day or
two to make further experiments
with more suitable facilities and
apparatus than are available at
Chester.
