Searchlight Attistt in Saving of Would-

New York, May 18.���A spectacular
r>-wiic by search light was effected in
the twirling waters of Hull Gate early
today when Prances Horr. aged IT
years, was saved from suicide by drowning by three young men after a hard
struggle. The girl, brooding long over
her troubles, threw herself Into the
river. Then the love of life temporarily
overcame her desire to die, and she
screamed lustily. Joseph Lazarus,
Michael Flynn und Valentine Sealand
heard ber cries uud ran to Uie water.
They could nol see thc source of tbe
appeals for help. They could not see
any one, and were about to leap blindly
Into the river, trusting to chunce to direct them, when the search light of a
passing steamer revealed the struggling
woman. They dived In the direction of
the light. Lazarus reached the girl first
nnd was nearly throttled by the would-
be suicide, whose deBlre to die returned
with the prospect of rescue. His companions reached them Just In time to
save the pair from drowning and the
girl was borne ashore and removed to
a hospital.   She will recover.

Judgment of Court Sel
Dominion Government Assisted
Case oi Deliberate Theft by
Forgery and Perjury.
Ottawa, May 18���Mention has frequently been made of the Blairmore
townsite. The story of the transaction,
which should be told in full, ls a record
of traud and perjury perpetrated to
gain valuable property ln the gift of
the government. The crimes were discovered and exposed, and yet as a result of these methods an estate valued
at $21)0.000 has come Into the bands of
an active Western politician through
the favor and connivance of the department of the into! ior.
Mr. Malcolm MacKenxle, barrister,
member of the Alberta legislature, ls
the owner of the townsite of Blairmore.
This town haB a population of about five
hundred and Is beautifully situated on
the Eastern slope of the Rocky mountains, where the Crow's Nest Pass on
the C. P. II. line broadens out on an
elevated plateau. It is near the well
known mining town of Frank.
Mr. MacKenzie, who was the government candidate in the last Dominion
election, received his patent for the 160
acres of land comprising the Blairmore
townsite in July, 1901, when the place
had a population of two or three
hundred people and had become extremely valuable. Mr. MacKenzie had
himself valued the estate before that
time at some (50,000, and he paid the
governmenl Just (480, or $:: an acre for
Ihe property. This was the selling
price for ordinary farm land at the
Mr. MacKenzie obtained the grant by
taking an assignment of tbe right of
an Italian named Montalbetti who represented himself as the first Bquatter on
the land. MonlalbetU's claim, and his
affidavits supporting It, had been prepared in Mr. MacKenzle'a law offlce at
MacLeod, 45 miles away, and MacKenzie obtained at the same time the right
of the Italian without paying him any
money for It.
The ltallu.i's claim was absolutely
fraudulent lt wbb based on pure Inventions, supported by a series of perjuries.
This fraud was made known to the government before the patent wns Issued,
lt was proved before a court of law,
and ln fact established by the confession of the Italian himself.
Another man was ln occupation of Ihe
ground before the Italian. Ills name
was Lyon and he came from Ontario.
He built on the premises the flrsl
structure Intended to be permanent,
went Into business and kept a shop
there, and made a claim as a Bquatter.
He was truthful and his statements
were never contradicted. As between
hlm and the assignee of the Italian,
Lyon undoubtedly had the hotter right,
and lf Lyon's claim as a squatter was
not technically sufficient to entitle him
to the splendid fortune contained In
thiB land, the property should have remained with the people of Canada, who
had the original rights to tho $100,000
or $200,000 profits out of It.
The story of Hlalrmore begins ln 1808,
when Monlalbettl came there aB C. P. R.
secllon foreman and Lyon nrrlved ns
local agent for the railway. The Italian
put up a tent on tho townsite nnd lived
there while tho company was building
hlm a section house, und Lyon, with
the assistance of Iho railway company,
put up n log shnnty on tho townsite.
This wns also a temporary affair. Both
men ufterwards had llttlo gardens on
the disputed territory. So fur their
claims were equal. But Lyon gave up
his railway job and wont into business
und built a store on tho townslle. Tho
llrst claim lo the land was made by
Lyon, who tried to obtain It aB n homestead and was Informed thut It could
not be homestendod as It wbb an odd
numbored section. His Bloro was the
llrst permanent building on the land.
In June, 1901, Montalbetti applied for
the right to purchase tho land, each
claiming priority as n squattor. Mon-
tnlbettl's claim wub assigned to Mr.
MacKenzie, and Its promotion was
thence forwnrd In the hands of lhat
politician. In his famoiiB affidavits tho
Italian falsely stnted that ho had a
garden on the land In 1898. Ho made a
false statement about building a Btablo.
He made a falso atatoment that lie kept
a cow and other stock on the land In
1898. In fact, all tho statements on
which Miiiitnlhi.il I supported his claim,
or rather MuoKenile'g claim, were
The government ordered HonieBtend
Inspector Stewart to go to Blairmore
and report on the claim of Lyon, Montalbetti and others. The property was
then supposed to be worth about $50,-
000.. Before Stewart's report was received by the department of Interior,
the politicians got alarmed and had a
more suitable commissioner sent. This
was Land Agent Nixon, a strong party
man who afterwards had to give up his
offlce as land agont on account of defalcations, and then was appointed to a
better offlce. Nixon was a party assocl.
ate and fellow-townsman of MacKenzie.
They hud done campaign work together.
N'txon knew that MacKenzie owned
Montalbettl's claim. Nixon and MacKenzie went up to Blairmore together
and came back together. Nixon told
MacKenzie what reiiort he was going
to make before he sent it to Ottawa. Of
course he reported ln favor of MacKenzie. Meantime the report of Mr. Stewart had been received. He had found
the Italian claim unfounded.
This was in June, ln July, Land Commissioner Turiff,. now a member of parliament, a gentleman who has been
much connected with land deals In the
West, and has become suddenly rich as
bave some of his relatives, took up the
case at, Ottawa. Of course he paid no
attention to the petition for delay from
Mr. Lyon, who was forwarding evidence
of tbe frauds. He decided in favor of
Mr. MacKenzie with astonishing promptness, if is not often that a patent ls
issued in such a rush as this one.
Mr. Sifton went away after this, and
while he was gone Mr. Lyon asked for
the cancellation of the patent on the
ground of fraud. Mr. Fitzpatrick, 'minister of justice, saw the statements In
support of this demand and at once
authorized a hearing by the exchequer
court. The judge of that court commissioned Judge Wetmore of the North.
wost to go to Blairmore and ascertain
the facts It did .not take Judge Wet-
more long to find ont that thc Montalbetti claim, whioh the government had
recognized, was fraudulent and utterly
worthless. The Italian confessed to the
falsehoods. Judge Wetmore reported
these facts. Acting upon them Judge
Burbrldgc of the exchequer court was
proceeding to judgment cancelling the
patent. Then the beneficiaries of the
fraud got In their'work and the minister of the Interior interposed. Mr. Sifton stood by Tariff, Nixon, MacKenzie
and the perjured claim.
Mr. Sifton began to write letters to
lhe minister of justice and had the
case stood over. He got a second delay.
He consulted with Mr. Turlff and suggested that the case be withdrawn. He
wrote to the department of justice saying that the Interior department was
not anxious to set aside the patent.
Finally Mr. Sifton asked the judge to
dismiss the case.
He argued that the Crown was the
only party now Interested In cancelling
the patent as Lyon waa not legally a
squatter. The department did not desire lt to be cancelled. Finally the Judge
dismissed the case by request of the
Crown, which was the only party in the
suit against MacKenzie. The government paid the whole costs. MacKenzie
obtained his $200,000 worth of property
for $480, though, according to Judge
Wetmore, there was no evidence that
he ever paid the Italian a cent for IL
Judge Burbrldge's judgment declares: "lt Is very plain that the defendant, Mr. MacKenzie, obtained the land
In question t hn sigh fraud, but owing
lo the action of the Crown, which I
can hardly understand, in withdrawing
from the case, I am forced to find that
Lyon has no legal right to cancel the
patent of MacKenzie. But had the
Crown remained in the case I would
find that MacKenzie obtained the land
by fraud and Immediately cancel
the patent. However, I have no alternative ln the matter but to dismiss the
case without costs."
That wns Ihe way Mr. MacKenzie became rich. There ls no doubt that the
government made Itself a party to a
gross fraud, both against Lyon, whose
claim was honester and better than
Mackenzie's, and against the peoplo of
Canada. In tho beginning the homestead Inspector reported against Mac-
Kcnzle's claim. Judge Wetmore found
It to be fraudulent. Judge Burnridge
would huve cancelled the patent had the
government allowed him to do so. Mr.
Fitzpatrick, now chief justice of Canada,
in the absence of the head of the machine, set in operation the legal process
which would lgivs- redressed the wrong.
But thore haB always been Influence
enough on the side of the grafters to
prevail even against so strong a combination as this.
The same forces which carried
through tho Saskatchewan land deal,
the Galway Grazing lease, Ihe Grand
Forks deal, tho Robins Irrigation job,
nnd all Ihe others of their class were
on the side 6f tho Blalrmoro claimant.
Mr. Lake, M. P. for Qu'Appelle,
brought up In this cuso ln parliament In
April of this year. The matter was
clearly set forth. Judge Wetmore's finding was read. Tho Btatement of Judge
Burbrldge quoted above was produced.
A resolution condemning the deal and
steal was moved. It met the fate of
all thc other resolutions ngnlnsl grafting In the western domain of the people of Canada. It, was rejected by a
straight party vote except that a number of dece>4 Liberals took occasion to
he absent when tbe names were called.

���Newspaper Padding About Orchard Discussed ia Court.
Boise, Idaho, May 18.���With five peremptory challenges exhausted out of 20,
with 32 talesmen to be examined, 11
talesmen In the box watting peremptory
challenges, and one still under examination tor cause, the case against William D. Haywood, charged with the murder of former Governor Frank Stuenen-
berg, opens today with small prospects
of a Jury being completed before the
end of next week. The storm raised
over the published Interviews with Harry Orchard seems to have almost sub.
sided. The public prosecution, to whom
was entrusted the investigation Into the
liability of the newspapers responsible
for the interview, is expected to submit
his report to the court at this afternoon's session. Counsel on both sides
are willing to admit that no poetlble
cause for contempt proceedings against
the newspapers Is likely to be found.
It is pointed out that In the flrst place
an Intent to prejudice must be shown
as also in the second place that the
Jurors examined at yesterday's session
admitted they had not read the papers
and If they had done so they were not
Influenced by the report of the interview. Thla will depend upon the scope
of the evidence brought ln by the prosecution. It ls probable that the defence
will reserve the opening address to the
Jurors until after all the evidence for
the prosecution haa been offered and
the state has doted.

On Monday next the property owners of Nelson will decide the most int-
imrtant question now confronting the
citizens, namely, whether or not the issue of $60,000 debentures shall be authorized for the purpose of providing
this city with decent and sufficient
school accommodation.
The question has been before the people for over two years and for the last
two months it has been before them in
very definite form. There has been
cothiag resembling a bylaw campaicn
for the reason that no one will publicly
oppo��e the hylaw Any opposition there
may be Is more or less concealed and
therefore Itl strength cannot Ik* exactly
The position may be briefly described
Nelson has & collection of buildings
called the public school It was built
piece hy piece, without plan, and inc.-
dextally without expen.se to thi* city.
Five years ago the responsibility ol
providing for and maintain.ng it* public schools was cast upon Nelson as
���upon all other cities.
In-the meantime the fciirti school bad
be-en built as a kind of psninc gift from
the provinc.al government, and the first
overflow class from tbe public school is
stl.l quartered there.
The city of Nelion has not yet spent
one dollar for school building, hut Its
bill for rent and repairs has been high
At present the public school contains
ten divisions, seven of which are accommodated in the central buildings.
one in the high school, one ln Fraternity hall, and one in the basement of the
Baptist church. This condition is not
by any means satisfactory- The basement is not a fit plac��- for children Fraternity hall is unsatisfactory, and even
the central buildings are defective ss
5*wSSg=.*r- ���-���-"���
regards light, heat and ventilation.
Nothing but a new building will meet
the requirements of the case.
Unfortunately the necessity has been
postponed to a time when tlie coat of
building Is very high. Wages and material are now at the highest figures.
That is admittedly unfortunate, but lt
Is not sufficient argument for further
The estimated actual cost of the building is |45,O00; necessary improvement
of the grounds, architects and superintendent's fees, removal of part of the
present buildings, and other expenses
including furnishing will take nearly
��12.000 more. The $60,000 debentures
will probably yield as proceeds about
$5S,000. Therefore it can easily be seen
that no amount less than $60,000 will
be sufficient.
Whatever any oae'g private opinion
may be on the subject of free public education, no one can deny that it is essential in the interest of Nelson "that
this city ofTer facilities at least
equal to those of the other cities of the
province of the same class.
One argTiment that bas been advanced
against the proposal is that the provincial government is dealing unfairly
with the city, that it should contribute
a much larger proportion of the cost of
education than it does, and that Nelson
should refuse to build a school ss a protest against injustice.
There is neither truth nor relevancy
In the contention. No other province of
Canada pays nearly &o large a share of
the cost of education as British Columbia. No protest against an Imaginary
injustice mill remedy the present un-
sat.sfactory state of affairs In Nelson.
B-Wy intelligent citizen should register his vote as soon as possible after
^o'clock on Monday to lighten the task
of the school trustees. The only danger
to the bylaw is from apathy or forget-
fulness of Its supporters.
The Toronto World in an editorial explaining the new postal regulation in
regard to .periodicals says:
Mr. Lemieux deserves congratulation
for standing firmly between Canada and
the United States, and jiarticularly because he declined to sanction the forwarding of United Staes perodicals by
freight or express for mailing in Canada
at domestic postal rates. As conditions
have hitherto existed. Canada has been

Chinese and Russians to Work on Railway  in   Mexico.
Mexico City, May 18.���A despatch
from Guaymas says that the steamer
Maori Jlng has arrived there. She had
on board 1,200 Chinese and 300 Russians
who are being brought to this country
to work on the Guadalajara extension
of the Southern Pacific. The trip from
San Diego, California, was without
interest. The Mexican government refused the passengers a landing because
21 armed American guards were aboard.
No comment on this phase of the case
was made at the war department, but
it is believed the laborers will be landed in a few days. During the trip
across the Pacific 20 Chinese were
killed ln a riot aboard the vessel.

Mr Hatt, wjo WBfl to have occupied the

stating: that he could uot be here The

Big Fruit Crop.
Kaslo horticulturists predict that the
yield in all kinds of fruits this year will
be extraordinarily heavy. A tremendous crop of strawberries is now assured,
which will compensate in some measure
for last year's partial falure. Judging
from the b'ossoms on the cherry trees
:he yield there will bt very heavy also.
Joves  Nodding.
Some amusement has been afforded to
local legal circles by the case of Rei
vs. Smith, accused of attempt to rape
at Ymir. The prisoner was allowed to
elect for a speedy trial, the case was
referred to Victoria, a crown prosecutor
was appointed and all was ready, when
Chief of Police Bullock-Webster returned and reminded judge, registrar,
crown prosecutor and counsel for defence that the offence was beyond the
jurisdiction of a county court judge.
The local authorities are rather glad
now that they have the deputy attorney
general in the same boat.
Revelstoke   Backed   Down.
The Revelstoke lacrosse team will not
play in Kaslo, on Victoria Day, as an
nounced. After all arrangements had
been made for the meeting between the
Revelstoke and Nelson teams, the former
telegraphed the Kaslo committee that
they could not come, giving as an excuse
thnt most of the players were away.
This, to the Kaslo Kootenian, sounds rather fishy in the face of the signed agreement, as it seems hardly possibly that a
written contract would be entered into
without calling a meeting of the club and
receiving the endorsement of the players.
On the strength of that contract the committee relied upon Revelstoke to carry it
out and the backdown is not very honorable to say the least. However, the
Kaslo committee has succeeded in getting
utMiittu play Nelson. Medicine Hat,
one of the best teams in the west, will be
on hand Victoria Day. The match should
be one of the best ever played in the
