IS TONKIN A FUGITIVC?
Serious Charts Agaiist lhe tanner
Miiager.
hill III S IKVt II ANU HAD HUH
It is Alleged That He Got Large
Suin.s   of   Money
Dishonestly.
POUCH "I   iwuhxn CITIES Noiuun
Alxiul "nc year ago John EI,
Tonkin i-iiiiu' to bVruio as manager
nf tin1 Crows Xest conl property
ntCoal Creek, Michel nntl Morris-
Boy. Hi- ennui with the reputation
ui' ,*ni iihtc manager, which lie fully
susliiiui'il tluriug the time lit- wus
in ehnrgo,   Affable in his tn; cr.
free in his relntIons with those lie
met) no man grew in popularity
faster than he. Within a short
lime nfter his -arrival, in Fernie,
In' was tin- whole thing. No business movement wns sun'of success
without Mr. Tonkin's approval: no
social event was considered safe
unless it had liis sanction, He
was the imk> linh of the community, and he filled tin- seat on
the throne with lieeoming grace
ami dignity, So strong were his
references, so marked his ability, so
fn rumble was his reputation, that
he came to ferule with a free hand,
holding ns it were the whole confidence of the company he represented. Soon after his arrival he
liiel with a serious strike. Imt this
he conquered satisfactorily to Ins
compnny, Ids employes ami the
people nf the province. Kvery
lilliciiliv was met in a businesslike
wny, ami as month by month pas
sed he grew in the estimation of
the people, ami was looked Upon
as an ideal manager, nnd one who
by his tacl nud ability, would bring
the development ut the eoal properties nnd other interests of the
company to Iheir highest singe,
ami al the same time so govern his
movements that the interests of
the vnriuus communities in which
he Inlmrod would be fairly protected,
Unt a chnnge enmo over Ihe
situation a few short weeks ago.
n ehnugu so sudden, so unexpected
that even to tins day many are
marveling ns to the renl meaning
nf the developments. Without a
cloud in the sky. without a sits
picion on the pari of iln- people on
the outside, .Mr. Liudsey, of To-
routo, solicitor for the compnny nnd
a director, arrived on the scene.
Within a Few hours Mr. Tonkin
was asked to resign, and the town-
site of Morrissey Mines that had
l'",-ii in the hands of Thomas
Crahnn, was withdrawn by the
order of Mr. Liudsey,
What did it menu?
No nne knew, and the air was
filled with rumors, Mr. Tonkin
hml a large number of friends who
were ready Ul take up the cudgels
of.l.feiis' iu his behalf, and the
local paper, in speaking of his
resignation und impending departure urged, upon the people togive
some public recognition of the
high esteem in which he was held,
ami suggested a banquet, Thus
matters rested until Mr. Liudsey
returned from tho const, when- he
had been called soon after demand*
ing Mr, Tonkin's resignation, On
the following Friday il was stated
lhat Mr, Tonkin and family would
leave for the east, but they did not
go until Saturday evening. And
as the train pulled ont, carrying
the erstwhile king of the Crows
Nest I'ass. only two or three faithful adherents were there to say
good bye and wish him well.
What.a fall! A few weeks ago
enjoying tho confidence of his
company nud tht- people, with a
princely salary aud a free hand
in the management of the largest
business enterprise in the province.
Then suddenly bereft of position
and fluids, and slinking from the
town like a galley slave scourged
o his dungeon,
Th.-rel.y hangs a tale, Gradually the truth leaked out, It was
said that he had Iweil ordered to
leave on Friday, but hail l>egge<l
lor twenty-four houw more t<< close
np his personal affairs ami pack
his household effeeta    ■ 'ut of pit)
thin wn* granted, but   nol   I ther
hour would bu given,
Bill   why such   nn    mpre*
Hilling stand on tin part of lhe
company* Win should the Into
mn linger lie bo willing to do us he
was commanded by n lawyer from
tin- eastv lie was not a child, and
docility was not one of his characteristics. That remitted a mystery until later, when it became
known that warrants had afterward lieen issued for Ins arrest,
and that tbo chief of police of the
district had notified the authorities
in the leading cities of the Dominion of the chnrges and issued instructions to arrest one .I.H. Tonkin if found. As no arn-st has been
made up to the present time it i-i
generally presumed that the late
innnnger lost no time in getting to
the States.
The charges on which the warrants were issued are ou tile in
Chief McMullen's office in Fernie.
They are varied iu tlieir nature aud
of n most serious character,
One charges Mr, Tonkin with an
attempt to defraud the company
hy false pretenses, since he induced the company to make a valuable
security, to wit, a lease of a certain
hotel in Michel to Mr. C, J, l>k-
storm, iu order that it might after-
wan Is be made or converted into
or used or dealt with as valuable
security,
Another is that he tlitl by false
pretenses makea contract without'
Thomas Cralian for the sale of lots
in Morrissey townsite. and to pay
said Crahau 15 per cent on, same,
which was made to he converted into a valuable security, etc,
Another charges that on different
dates iu IftOB, he did obtain by
fraud the sums of $761. $85-1, 81.-
ilOi.25, 8175, all of wliich was secured by fraud and false pretenses.
Still another charge, that he did
on May 2(1, by menace demand and
obtain from the Trites-Wood Company a promise in writ ini; from said
company to pay the sum of $10,-
000,
Another chnrge sets forth that
on May Ith, I'.KKi. he did with intent to defraud the Crows Nest
Pass Coal Company, by false pretenses, through medium of a contract with one Thomas Crahau. to
pay the sum of 15 per colli on sale
of lots iu Morrissey townsite. by
such false pretense obtain the sum
of $1200 at tin-town of Fernie. and
on tho Oth of July also obtain the
sum of $500,
Theso aro the chnrges set forth,
antl on these chnrges and the in-
strtietionsiof the police, Mr. Tonkin becomes a fugitive from justice.
This will Im' a sad surprise to many
who held lhe gentleman iu high esteem prior to the'developments that-
resulted iu his downfall. It is a
hard blow to the compnny not
from a financial standpoint, but
owing to the fact that a man they
ha<l so fully trusted, was found
lacking, which necessitated important changes, not only in men but
their entire system of handling the
work,
Sinking Iht Shaft,
(inst Theis ami Oliver Burgo,
of Perry Creek, were iii town Tuesilay. Mr. Theis snid that the
machinery was in position for
sinking the shaft on the placer
ground near Old Town that is
owned by himself and H, A. Jennings. The sinking of the shaft,
may take sixty or ninety days, as it
all depends on the character of the
ground rind tho depth of lied rock.
It is the opinion of all who art-
familiar with conditions on l'erry
(■reek, that this venture wilt prove
a profitable one.

typo of the element which is striving to save Uritish Columbia. Hi-
is for tin- right lirst. last anil all

Hardly Fair to All.
A. Leitch, president and manager of the East Kootonay humlier
Company, who has gone to tho
coast to interview the government,
expresses himself as follows on tho
lumlier j;art of \\n- new revenue
bill: "f hardly think it fair to ex*
press an opinion as yet, as I do
not think the regulations recently
passed an* likely to remain in their
present form. Ii' tiny did they
would undoubtedly be unfair, but
it is likely they will U* considered
and (intended in Borne important
particulars. Of course we understand thut the lumber industry like
other things hns to l»ar its share
of the expenses of the country, and
this we are willing to bear. But
taking for instance, tin* one item
in the new land law thai calls for
,*t payment of fifteen cents per acre
on a lease. This as applied to
coust lands ami interior lands alike
is obviously unfair, as tin* limber
lands at the coasf carry generally
ten times as much to the acre as
the timber lauds here do. This is
only one of the regulations that
bear heavily ou the interior lumbermen. However, tin* lumbermen
are not kicking. Those I havo
spoken to seem to take much the
same view as myself, tlmt is that
the regulations will Ih- placed ou u
fairer basis when they have been
fullv considered."
