Jury at Fernie Discharges Man Charged With the Murder of Sam
Watson—Congratulated by His Many Friends-
Jury Disagrees in Johnson Case
Tbe fall asalxcH opened at Fernie
Monday morning with Chief Justice
Hunter presiding. Sherwood l lurch-
mer, of Fernie, watt crown prosucu-
tor. About thirty people were called from ('ranbrook, both as witness*
ea and Jurymen.
The grand Jury am win ted of Thomas
Uphill, Jacob F. Fink, Thomas
Roberta, Robert M. Young, Myles
Ariel Beale, Qeorge U. Jewell, John
L. tlaU'H, J. 1). Quail, Edward K.
Stewart, Frederick Ulnmore, Qeorge
Cody and Petor R. Lundle. True bills
were brought lm In the four criminal
cases beforo the court. Tho grand
jury presented the following report
and recommendation: "The grand
Jury haB visited the public buildings,
-fix., public school, Jail and the city
hall, and find these buildings in excellent condition and suitable for the
requirements and capably looked
after. The grand Jury recommends
that a prison for the district ot Fcrnie and Cranbrook be established at
some point convenient to both with an
experimental farm connected therewith for all cases originating In these
districts wherein Imprisonment now
takes place at Nelson, The reasons
for this are to reduce the excessive
cost ot transportation to Nelson and
to provide for the districts ln which
the cases originate, the benefits derived from prison labor and to afford
labor of such a nature as would be
beneficial not only to the communities
in question! but to -the prisoners
Chief Justice Hunter commended
the men on their recommendation and
said it would be placed before the
proper authorities.
Another recommendation was to
the effect that all cases originating in
the Cranbrook dietriet be tried at
Cranbrook. This recommendation
did not fare so well as the one above
After being on trial for two days st
the Femle criminal assizes, Hugh McOill, of this city, charged with the
murder of Samuel Q. Watson, stepped
from the court Tuesday afternoon at
4.30 a free man. He arrived in the
city Wednesday, accompanied by John
Bird and Qeorge Couldwell, members
of the Ancient Order ot Foresters,
who have been looking after thc case
on behalf of that order. The case
has been followed by Cranbrook
people closely, the keenest interest
being manifested throughout When
McOill arrived in Cranbrook a large
number of friends were at the train, j
probably one hundred, who warmly I
shook his hand and congratulated i
blm on being set free.
Not guilty, was the unanimous ver-1
diet of the Jury which has been listen
ing to the evidence in the murder case
before the assizes court at Fernie
since Monday afternoon.
The accused, Hugh McOill, of Cranbrook, was put upon trial for hla life
charged with the murder, on September 15th last at the McOill home in
Cranbrook, of Samuel Watson, a young
man of about twenty-five years of age
who had been sustaining Improper
relations with McOlll's wife for more
than a year.
The case drew the Interest of a
whole district, owing to the circumstances surrounding the tragical ending of the young roan's life, and the
standing of McOill as well as the respect felt for the parents of young
Watson. The Crown, represented by
Sherwood Herchmer, undertook to
prove that McGlll was the aggressor
ln the fight which took place on the
verandah of the McGlll home on the
fateful 15th of September.
The defense, conducted by Mr. A. I.
Fisher, showed that Watson had been
unlawfully Intimate with Mrs. McGlll,
and that McGlll, upon finding out the
state of affairs, reported the facts to
the chief of police, with a request that
Watson be kept nway and warned to
that effect This was done, but Watson did not heed the warning, and
made threats as to what he would do
to McOill If he undertook to interfere
with htm.
McGlll was an employee ot the C.P.
R. at the machine shops and lt happened that he waB changed from day
shift to night shift on the 15th, which
was an unexpected occurrence, in consequence of which McGlll was at home
on that afternoon when Watson came
to the house and knocked on the door.
Instead of meeting MrB. McOill, as was
his evident expectation, he was met at
thc door by McGlll himself who wanted to know "what the devil he wanted
Watson answered by striking at McGlll with a whip crop which he was
carryin* atid, JJcGi]! stated that he
went at Watson with his fists, striking
hlm and causing him to fall against
a post of the verandah. The young
man sustained a fracture of the skull
over the temple and there were two
otlier wounds upon the head and face.
Dr. King stated that he had examined the deceased both before and after death and thought the fracture of
tho skull might have been the result
of a blow of a blunt instrument, and
on cross-examination admitted that It
might have been done ln some other
No evidence wns produced by the
crown to show that McOill had any
weapon, other than his fists, and rested its case largely upon the theory
that the wounds found on the body
could not have been Inflicted by fist
blows or by contact with the post.
Mr. Fisher spoke tor twenty minutes
making a powerful appeal for his
client and received the applause of the
spectators ln the court room, which,
of course, wbb promptly silenced by
the sherirf.
Mr. Herchmer occupied but ten mln-
iit'M In stating the case of the crown,
und was also applauded- His Lordship, Chief Justice Hunter, ln charging the jury, waa explicit and Impartial  occupying fifteen minutes.
The jury were out half an hour and
returned with a verdict of not guilty.
In discharging the accused his lordship congratulated him and expressed
the hope that he might be able to
live down the dark shadow which had
been cast across his domestic life, and
also hoped the untimely ending of the
life of young Wat&on would serve as
a lesson to others regarding the breaking up of thc homes of other people.
When released McGlll received tlie
applause of the crowd and the hearty
congratulations of many friends who
had watched every phaue of the case.
It was, perhaps, the most dramatic
ending of any trial ever held In the
F*>rnie court and the verdict is approved by everybody.
The names of the Jury are ac follows: Foreman, Thomas Beck, J. C.
Forbes, F. J. Brown, J, S. Corbett,
A. E. Fcrgeson, Wm. Allen, Alex. Cameron, J. W. Buchanan, S. J. Horton,
Thomas Hampton, D. J. Cody and
Frank Bean. The deceased, Samuel
Watson, was at the tlmo of his death
a member of the 54th battalion, stationed at Vernon, and was In Craubrook on a visit to his mother who
have the sympathy of the whole community in the sad ending of their son.
j Witnessed called from Cranbrook In
connection with this cose were Chief
iof Police Adams, Policeman Horace
| Venus, City Engineer Cummlngs, Dr.!
J. H. King, Mr. E. Y. Brake, Mr. Wil-
Ham Hayward and Mr. Isaac Burch.'
The charge of Indecent assault'
j against A. A. Johnson, manager of the
i Rex moving picture theatre, this city, i
j opened Wednesday morning and occupied two full days.    Most of the
evidence was shocking in the ex-;
, treme.   After hearing all the evidence
the jury disagreed, there being nine
j for acqultal and three for conviction.
The case will be held over until the
I spring assizes. Meanwhile Mr. John-
| son will languish ln jail unless ball j
j can be arranged.
Among the Cranbrook people in at-
tendance at Fernie ln connection with
thll case are Chief of Police Adams, ■

The market committee at the last
meeting some time back felt they
could not approach the council for
further assistance, as the market was
Hot getting sufficient support to encourage the city In giving it further
financial assistance.
Tlio question now is, do the farmers
themselves feel that they will make
sufficient use of It, now cold weather
I Is at hand, to pay for supporting It
. It is a matter of extremp regret to
the market committee and their
j friends In both council and Institute
; that the market has not obtained the
i support It should from either the pro-
j ducer or the eonrumcr. Other cities
i nre carrying on very successful mar*
| kets. witness Nelson, where tho market Is a real llve Institution, well pat-
ronliod on both sides of the counter.
Are tho ranchers here less alive than
In other places or ire the townspeople
ho well satisfied with the present state
of affairs that thoy have no desire to
help tho district to shed Its pioneer
aspect and become n real factor In
producing the agricultural wherewithal sufficient to supply Itself.
Certain It Is tho sources of support
on which the market rested In the
past are about exhausted, thc Institute Is In low-water and those who
worked hardest feel much dlscourag-
If you have nn Idea to give
away come out Saturday and bring It
with you.

Several thousand officers aad employees of this company enlisted for active military

bravely battling for Canada and the empire.
As particulars of Army Reservists are not available, these lists of those who have given

Hep Thong, Chinese Merchant,    Sets
Splendid Example for Others
to Follow
In May last, Hep Thong, Chinese
merchant, Imported a quantity of
Chinese wine and paid a war tax there
on of some $27.00. In some time the
customs authorities found they were
not within their rights ln making this
charge and prepared the necessary
papers to enable Hep to get back the
money. No. He did not want it. Let
It go for tho war, to the Patriotic
Fund or the Red Cross, for the
wounded men coming back from the
war, said he. And so lt was arranged,
and to the extent of the money some
of our poor fellows will benefit by the
recognition by a Chinese gentleman,
for that Ih whnt Hep Chong Is, that
our laws aro good nnd the country
which gives him the shelter of Uh constitution ls worth supporting In hard

A deal could bc Hnid on this little
i matter. Rut tt all comes to this, thnt

a man worth knowing, and a splendid
example for others to fellow.

No case, probably, in the history of
Cranbrook attracted as much attention
as thc lamentable death of Samuel
Watson at the hands of Hugh McOill,
whose trial at Femle during the past
week, ended ln what tbo public fully
expected, a verdict ut acquittal. There
Is no necessity tor reviewing the facts
as these appear quite sulllciently in
our report ol the trial. The view ot
tbo Jury appeared tu be that McUill
was In the position of the strong man
holding bis house und the honor
thereof. This, too, from tlie very inception uf the cuse. wus opinion of the
Ancient Order ot r'orcBters, to whicli
McUill belongs. The order took up the
delenee, gave McUill the strong en
couragement of their moral and lint
unclul support, and welcomed him
when he stepped trum the dock, freed
from the resiionslblllty lor the death
of Wutson and better still with words
of eminent comfort and profound (amnion sense from Chief Justice Hunter
who, when the Jury had rendered their

Several editorials have appeared ln
the press strongly advocating the advisability of altering the B. C. "keep
to the left" rule of the road, so as
to bring that province Into line with
the other Canadian provinces and the
United StatcB. II must be remembered lhat there are always a large number who disapprove of any change on
principle and have to have any new
idea before tbem for Borne time before they can get uaed to it. So It wlll
bo wltll the question of the rule of
tlie road and the arguments in favor
of tbe change being ao overwhelmingly Btrong, it can ooly be a matter of
time and perseverance before it Is
brought about. Thc great point is

jxtract Ib typical of the general tone
if those who wish to "let well alone"
and allow the present slate of affairs
to continue. It runs: "As to tbe tourist or occasional visitor, he is generally cosmopolitan and broad-minded
enough to understand that when he is
in Rome he ls expected to do as Rome
does.   That Ib well enough."
Unfortunately for our correnpond-
'■nt's argument, the cosmopolitanism
and broad-mindedness of the motorist
visitor to B. C. Is not the Important
consideration; the real point is the
.langcr of life and limb which such
,-lsitors must face at thc present
time. Of course, aB a thrilling experience, changing their accustomed
usage at a moment's notice and running Into imminent peril of a serious
accident may have its charm for
some; still we fancy that the ordinary mortal would rather dispense
with the risk even if this does mean
Icing without the excitement. In

Nor, as some hyper-sen native
people seem to think, would It be
'Infra dig" for B. C. to make the
liange. After all, practically the
whole of the North American contln-
mt lias the right hand rule, and
t would be abBurdedly unreasonable
tu expect such a large body of outo-
inobllists to alter their law to suit the
convenience of one province. We
hope that we have by this time made
t clear that the whole problem hinges
iot on any question of provincial dignity, but on the necessity of protect-
ug the personal security, both of
motorists from B. C. who cross Into
neighboring territory. In effecting an
iteration of this kind there must necessarily be some trouble and confusion at flrat, and It Is only right that
thia be confined to what Is, after all,
only a small minority of the North
American continent motoring community.

cannot be too strongly emphasized)

ingout the list of those present? Suffice It to say that Royal Commissions
are almost as prevalent as sausages.
All these Royal Commissions are at
work but there is some doubt as to
whether tbey are earning their money.
Take the Davidson Commission for
example. It consists of one man, a
Quebec judge, Sir Charles Peers Davidson. An opinion grows that for a
gentleman whose middle name Is Peers
he might peer more deeply and widely
than the facts appear to Indicate. The
Davidson commission Is following up
the scandats all right, but that ts
about all. It keeps strictly In the
footsteps of the Public Accounts Committee, covers the same ground, and
doesn't budge from the middle of the
road to see what !c behind the hedge.
A good and faithful Royal Commission, that won't hurt anybody that
hasn't been hurt before.
Reports from British Columbia
tend to show that the Interesting
transaction of the two submarines,
purchased In a moment of inspiration
by Sir Richard McBride, and billed to
Canada at $1,160,000 Is being scrutinized as between gentlemen. Suspicion
cannot live in that genial atmosphere.
Sir Richard appears and handsomely
denies everything. Nobody seems to
wish to bring that dignified and beautiful head of early grey hair In sorrow to the grave.
So far, as can be seen this distance,
the chief facts remain unexplained,
and no satisfactory answer Is given
to questions like these. Why did Sir
Richard telegraph to Ottawa flrst that
the price was to be $1,050,000, and
then send a second telegram ralBlng
the ante another hundred thousand
Why was the cheque split two wayB?
Why, moreover, was $1,150,000 paid
for two bargain counter submarines
that Chill turned down at 1760,000?
To all these questions, echo answers,
At all events only faint replies are
made, as for example when Manager
Patterson, of the Seattle Drydock and
Construction Company, explains that
Chill didn't get the boats, because
Chill was broke, which Is probably
news to Chill. Chili declares that
she refuBed the boats because they
were better dlverB than they were
swimmers—that Is to Bay when they
went down they wanted to stay down,
and couldn't be coaxed up short of
wrecking tugs ond steel cables. But
now that Sir Charles Davidson has
been down In one of 'cm and has come
to tho top again, the Chilian contention may be held to have been disproved. When a high court Judge consents to act as Jonah to a tin whale
he must be pretty sure of his return
ticket. Out In Victoria they will tell
you that the submarines aro pretty

Talking of British Columbia and
Royal Commissions, reminds one of
the Joint Indian Commission, approved by the Dominion and tlie British Columbia governments. It Ib
built largely on a sense of humor, Is
now In its third year, and haa already
cost the country over $200,000, One
of Its members once told me that if It
were necessary In the pursuit of better terms for the British Columbia
Indians, the Commission would not
hesitate to cross the ocean to England
and remain at the Savoy Hotel In
London, for six months while It looked up state documents, treaties,
crown grants from Qeorge the Third
and similar matters.

true value. Incidentally, lawyer
Read, one of Attorney General Bowser's friends, picked up $80,000 by way
of commission on the deal. The Klt-
silnno purchase was subsequently disallowed by the Dominion government
because lt had been made without consent from Ottawa, but history says
nothing about Lawyer Road's commission. It probably held good. Such

Cured by Zam-Buk
To those who suffer from this painful malady the following letters will
be of deep Interest. Mr. J. McEwen,
of Dundas, Ont, writes: "For fifteen
years I suffered with piles und could
get no permanent cure until I tried
Zam-BUk a fair trial 1 found 1 was
getting better, and ln tlie end it completely cured me."
Mr. James Ruddy, of Killaloe, Ont..
says: "I Buffered greatly from piles,
The pain from these, as anyone who
suiters from them will know, was at
times almost unbearable. I tried first
one remedy and then another, but all
without effect. The piles still continued as bad ar. ever. I heard about
Zam-Hiik and commenced with tlie
treatment. To my great joy, after perseverance, 1 obtained relief from the
agonizing pain of the piles. Having
been cured by Zam-Buk I heartily recommend the balm to all sufferers
from piles."
Why not end your suffering? Take
the advice of the hundreds who have
done so and give Zam-Buk a fair trial.
Tills marvellous remedy quickly relieves the suffering, lt soothes and
heals the Inflamed, irritated hemorrhoid veins, snd perseverance wltll
Zam-Buk  effects  permanent cures.
Every home needs Zam-Buk—acci-
deiits will happen, and Zani-Knl; is the
best "first aid-" it quickly takes the
sting out of a cut, the flre out of
a burn or scald, the sorenenH from n
bruise. Blood-poison or other complication cannot creep in where Zam-
Buk has been applied. It is a sure
cure for piles, eczema, ulcers, children's scalp sores, varicose veins, cold
cracks, chapped hnnds, etc. 50c, at

In this extreme eaue we accept the

Washington unhesitatingly.
Had not Kditor Power been pretty
much all In from much mountaineering we fancy he would have been sorely tempted to put out a Kootenaian
"Extra" to announce tlie gatherings of
thirty-sly (36) cups of second crop
strawberries on a Kaslo ranch during September and Octoher. Here In
tho famed Creston. valley where we
shipped out almost thut number of
crates last month, to suy nothing of
the quantities consumed locally, one is
hard put to account for the Kooten-
iian's horticultural exuberance. The
•vent will be of considerable historical value to future generations of
Kastatites in that they will be able
to recall the big German war as having taken plaee the year Kaslo had a
:,ii-cup-crop of second growth strawberries.

Four ordinary Cranbrook apple pies.
After looking them over carefully
Kditor Sullivan of the Herald frankly
admitted that it was a Creston Valley
apple that got Adam and Eve Into the
jackpot In the garden of Eden. Provincial Horticulturist Winslow please
residents of the community had sub
scribed In cash the sum of four hundred aud eighty-three (4X.I) dollars and
that the hnly m<cmhcrs had In addition
to this doue In the neighborhood of
one hundred dollars In work. It was
specially mentioned that one of the
starters of this movement In the district had been Captain John Koel
Phillips togethnr with his devoted
wife; that he 1ms acted as first secretary and that in the carrying out of
his duty as a member of the Lincolnshire regiment hc had met with b
painful death In. the hospital at Bo-
logno on the* 18th April, having been
wounded on thc fourth of that month
at St. Eloi, France. Also that another
Hovere loss to thc local branch had
occurred in thc recent death of the
late thc Lady Elizabeth Bruce, of this
place. The election of officers resulted In the re-election of those who
had held the positions in the previous
term, Mrs. Q. E. Parham being the
