 o	
Phoenix, Auk. 36. Tlie town of
Midway, it nines Hum hore, was ttie
scene ul u sensational holdup last
night when Unas. L. Thomet uf tlie
Commercial hotel was sliut and killed hy highwaymen. Two masked
men entered the hotel at nine u'cluek
und at the point of a mun four men
including Thumet were told to throw
up their hands. Thomet being behind the liar put his hand on a revolver und opened tire with three
shots on the intruders wounding one.
The straugei'H retaliated with an
equal number uf shots, Thumet receiving a bullet in the shoulder and
one in the abdomen after which he
staggered through a side dour into a
room. The desperadoes gut into the
room through another entrance and |
shot three more bullets into the body I
of the dying man. They made their
escape in the direction of Kerry,
Washington, but from the blood
found on different parts uf the tioor
one uf them is thought to be seriously wounded Three other men besides Thumet, including the local
banker were in the bar at the time
but no attack was made un them
ami the till was left untouched.
Blood hounds are being brought
from Spokane to trace the criminals.
Thomet was one uf the ioremost
marksmen in the country and up till
two years ago had been a provincial
constable. He is thought to have
become a victim of the highwaymen
as a result of having recognized
them when they held up Cruwell's
hotel at Midway a few days ago. He
kept himself fully armed and openly
defied trouble. The strangers were
evidently alter Thumet rather tiian
booty. Chcesaw, Greenwood, and
Midway have each been visited by
holdups during the past month and
this is thought to be the work of the
same pair. Provincial constables
Aston of Midway and Docksteuder of
Phoenix have been up the noitb fork
this week on tlie previous case.
A passenger from Midway last
night told a story of the crime which
would indicate that the motive was
not revenge but robbery.
Mr. Suiter, proprietor of another
hotel in Midway, was sitting upstairs in the evening about 9 o'clock,
when he saw two men, moving cautiously, approaching from the directiou ol the Chinese quarters on the
tint near the riverf He loaded a
double barrelled shot gun, und summoned his brother from the bur, who
also loaded a gun, nnd the pair
waited. The strangers walked
around the hotel, keeping carefully
in the shade and then walked uway.
Mr. Salter did not get a good
enough view to know whether they
were masked or not. Ten minutes
later he and his brother heard the
shooting at the Commercial hotel
which resulted in the death of
Thumet.
The crime, following on ho many
others of the same kind in Midway
of recent date has east a gloom
over the towu. The deceased ('has.
Thomet, was very popular in Midway
He was about 47 years uf age, und
lenveH a widow and flvo children, the
eldest uf whom is only IU years old.

"1   would   rather

r'rutiK ti. Car
penter, when interviewed at the
Hotel Vancouver recently. Mr. Carpenter arrived in the city on his
second trip around the world. During the present tour he will write u
series of newspaper articles on "The
Awakening ol Asia," the first oi
these articles to appear iu American
newspapers about tlie first of next
year.
Keferring to his recent investigation of conditions iu the northwest,
Mr. Carpenter commented: "The Canadian wheat fields will be working
when there is not a diamond left iu
Africa."
Uut oven tne Canadian wheat belt,
in Mr. Carpenter's opinion, is not so
important as British Columbia, "We
have  repeatedly    heard,"    he-     said,
that tliis end of Canada is Lhe tail
of the dug, the eastern .prm inces--
the dog— being responsible for the
wanning of the tail. Very scon,
however, these same eastern provinces will find that the tail shows
every indication of wagging the dog.
"You are attracting," continued
Mr. Carpenter,"the very best of
American settlers, men uf means and
practical knowledge, while Cie general cluss of immigrants to eastern
Canada, though desirable, are men of
smalt means, who look to Canada
fur their lirst start in life."
Again referring to the northwest,
the man who hus caused to apiuar
in hundreds uf newspapers at least
three thuusand words every week,
since 1882, suid: "We Americans
must take off our hats to your government for the manner in which it.
has advertised the northwest, and
for its capable organization in respect to the handling of Immigrants,
Switzerland, New Zealand, nnd Ca-
nada lead all other countries in the
world in the matter of judicious and
effective advertising.

Now lor the revenue,
Kor the four months iu

Same four months in
19U8    	
Decrease     	
There is a decrease
$6,000,000 in customs, a quarter of a
million in excise, more than u third
of a million in railway income, with
a very small increase iu postal revenue. Por the month of July the following is the statement:
1907

Decrease     	
There is a loss of a
three-quarters iu customs, $100,000
in excise,$20,000 in post office, und
$211,000 in public works revenue,
mainly of the Intercolonial railway.
NU DROP HERE.
Next we have the expense account.
Current expenditure for
the     four     months,
1907       $17,191,663
Same   four   months,    1908 17,821,106

Sume   month,   1908     10,857,163
Increase      1,201,824
While the expenditures seems tu be
a good deal less than the revenue
tor the four months it should be
borne in mind that certain charges,
like interest and subsidies, occur ut
stated periods, and that many expenditure puyments nre deferred. The
comparison must be made between
this year aud lust year. Hut two
things may be pointed out.
Wnile ut the end of July, 1907,
there was a nominal surplus of
$1.1,000,000, at the same date this
year it is less than $8,000,000.
While in July, 1907, the current
expenditure exceeded the revenue by
half u million, in July, 1908, the expenditure exceeds the revenue by
more than $4,000,000
Uut there is to be added the capital expenditure, which is:
Four   mouths,      1907    $4,561,611

liument was in session. Nor is it
likely that the two Government
counsel prosecuting the inquiry will
conclude it so that a report may be
mude public before the elections.
One of them has done good service
to the machine in Ontario, and the
other was a law partner of the Minister of Murine, under whose rule
many of the scandals begun. They
will yot get tlie Government into
more trouble than is necessnry.
A  FEW DISCOVERIES.
ft will be remembered thut proceedings in Judge Cassel's Court
were adjourned in the midst uf un
investigation of the Wilson buoys
and tue Cunudian fug signal contracts. Concerning Mr. T. L. Will-
son, and his acetylene buoys, and
liis carbide, it hus already been
found thut the Government paid him
nud his companies $l,054,215 down
to three months ago. These further
statements were made:
Hy contractor Wlllson himself,
that he guve to u minister of the
crown $lu,o00 of stock in his carbide
company in consideration of tlie services of that minister in getting
other capitalists to take stock. Mr.
Wlllson iliil not need to say that the
prospect of Government contracts
was the strongest inducement which
a minister could offer to these other
capitalists.
Col. Anderson, Chief Engineer of
the Marine Department, testified that
he opposed the Willson contracts
and was iu consequence ot this opposition the lights and buoys were
taken from his control. He believed
tlmt the Willson influence brought
ubout the appointment over his head
of the Commissioner of Lights by
whom the Willson inventions were
purchased.
Mr. Noble, Assistant Commissioner
of Lights testified that he was ordered by his superiors to certify to
accounts of which he had no knowledge, and that when ou the advice
of the Auditor-General instead of
certifying prices ''fair nnd Just" he
certified "prices arranged by the Department nt Ottawa," he brought
down on himself official wrath und
found u junior promoted uver his
head.
The Auditor-General testified thut
he had censed to regard certificates
from certain officers of the Murine
Department us having any value.
Among such worthless certificates
which he mentioned us leading him
to that conclusion were those of the
highest officers of the Department,
Another Fortunate Contractor.
The Canadian Fog Signal Compuny is a Toronto concern which
makes an instrument called the
"Uiupboue." No less than $006.4112
was paid to this contractor ut tlie
end of the lust fiscal year, aud it
wus admitted on oath by the secretary of the contracting compuny thnt
the Instruments sold to the Government for $4,500 were made to order
for the contractor for $400. This
contractor has no customer but ttie
Government, which guve the promoter u patent without protecting its
own interest, uud pays him 1,000 to
1,200 per cent profit on his goods,
J lldgc Cassels bus nut expressed
many opinions, but he mude the incident ul remark thut the Government should have refused to pay
this man more than $25,000 profit on
transactions out of which he hus
mude $150,000.
This Is the way the cuse stands at
tbe time Judge Cassels resumes his
investigation,

has heen inked fore and aft by the
guns of the opposition and corruption exposed sufficient to send a
dozen governments Into outer darkness, do you, gentle reader, for one
moment think the evil has been
checked or one Jot or tittle of the
vile stream stayed?
Not n particle.
The Liberal leaders have gone too
far in their evil ways. They can
only lloat with the corrupt stream,
they cannot go against it or dum it.
They dure not, It must go on Increasing in evil until the government
is thrown out  of  power.
Look nt their record.
Millions for  railway  subsidies.
Millions for  Public  Buildings.
In Nova Scotia alone no fewer than
one hundred und forty-eight harbors
will be given Government aid at nn

Special Council
MEETING
    o	
What   tlie   City   Dads'
arc doing tor lhe welfare and Prosperity
of the Commonweal th
A special meeting ol the City
council wus held in the council chamber on Monday evening of this week,
ut which business ol Importance to
the commonwealth was discussed.
Thoro were present, His Honor
Muyor Fink, and uldormon Ryan.
Jackson and Baker.
Records ol the last regular meeting were read, and on motion of aldermen Jackson and Baker adopted
as read.
i'iii- lollowing communication from
Government Agent Armstrong was
read:—
Tho City Clork,
('ranbrook,
I have the honor tu Inform you
thnt I am advised by the Public
engineer thnt the Government will
tuke over the Public Building for its
sole use, provided thut u clear title
to the site thereof is obtained.
I remain,
Your obedient servant,
J. F. Armstrong.
On motion of uldcrmcn Ryan and
Baker, the- communication ot Mr.
Armstrong's was accepted and referred to a committee of the whole.
Alderman Ryan, then addressed the
council and suid: "That he had been
informed that Mr. Baker hud received un offer, by private parties,
for the purchuse of the cemetery,
and that he, Mr. Baker, wished that
the city council be informed of the
fact, antl to hnve the council inform
him il the city desired to purchase
the same.
The matter was then discussed by
the council, and it wus their impression that the cemetery should be
secured by the city, that it was not
to the best Interests of the city,
that private parties, for speculative
purposes, should obtain control of
the grounds.
Alderman Jackson guve notice that
at the next meeting of the council
he would introduce a by-law authorizing the city to purchase the ceme-
try.
The communication from Mr. Armstrong was then discussed by a committee of the whole, und it was the
opinion of the council that the offer
of the government, as expressed in
Mr. Armstrong's letter, should be
accepted, thut the present quarters
occupied by the Municipal government were not stlfllcient nor adequate
for the transaction of tbe city business, thut a more suitable building,
nearer the center oi the city should
be constructed, which would combine
ibices for municipal affairs, and the
transaction of city business, a City
jail, court room, also quarters for
apparatus of the Fire Department.
That it was nut advisable for the
city to secure by lease, and repair
the present building occupied by the
city ns a court room nnd jail, as the
expense would be quite large, unil
not to the best interests of the city.
The matter was then referred to a
committee of the whole, und the city
solicitor. Tbe city solicitor was instructed to consider the matter, also
tu Irume a by.law, giving the council the necessary utithority to obtain
a loan of J15.000, also a petition
from one-tenth of the property holders for the purpose of bringing the
matter before the council, und securing the consent of the people for the
transfer of the present public building to the Provincial government,
the raising of funds for the construction of n new nnd more suitable
building, and the purchuse of the
cemetery.
On motion of aldermen Ryan nnd
Baker the council adjourned.

When the temperature starts a swift
slide towards the freezing mark, several degrees on the sule side thereof
the trusty thermometer begins to
ring a bell in tho (armor's bedroom
and keeps on ringing It until he appears In the orchard and turns it off,
