more  than   TOO  members of the  Western   Maine   Knights of  Pythias Jubilee
gathered  in the  Auditorium of the city
ball  when the  fiames  were discovered.
Only   a  few   persons   were   hurt.     The
financial  loss of the   ...pers and  documents in  the  reglstr;   <,f deeds,  where
everything  was destroyed.    Other  city
deportments were swept clear of everything hy the flames with the exception
of the  city  clerk's and the treasurer's
offices.    The   money   and   securities   in
the latter are believed to be Intact al-
though it will   be almost  Impossible  to
ascertain definitely until the vaults have
c :oled  off   sufficiently   for   an ^examination to be made.
One or the most valuable libraries in
lhe state, the Green Leaf law collection,
was completely destroyed with a loss
estimatad at IIO.OOO. The blaze originated In the city electrician's office and
I was caused by crossed wires.
The Associated Boards of Trade concluded their business at Moyie, yesterday afternoon and tbe members left by
train for their respective homes. All
tbe West Kootenay members arrived in
Nelson last night. Practically all the
matters anticipated by the Nelson board
at its last two meetings was presented
and adopted. Moyie was very hospitable. When it was learned tbat tbe
members had to leave Thursday afternoon, a banquet that had been arranged
for the last night was put forward to
Wednesday night.
President G.  O.  Buchanan,  who was
reelected, as were Vice-President Star-
key   and   Secretary  A.   B.   MacKenzie,
seen on his arrival last night, expressed
himself as  decidedly  pleased  with tbe
meeting and its results.    He said that
tbe speeches, and the conduct of business generally,  were  better than  ever
before;   there   were   animated  debates
and  disagreements    on     details   but a
quite evident general  desire to recommend only beneficial and practical measures.      Mr.    Buchanan paid a special
tribute    to    Nelson's     representatives,
Messrs,   starkey.   Fowler   and   Nelson*
who were all useful members of tbe association, and Mr. Fowler especially, a
brilliant    addition    to  the   dinner eloquence.
A deputation from the miners' union
visited the convention and presented a
denunciation of the Lemieux Act. One
of their speakers declared that they
could never hope for a satisfactory
board of arbitrators, and wanted the
right to strike restored.
The Nelson resolution asking for a
continuance of tbe lead bounty for aa?
other five years period aud the raising
of the minimum price to ��18 per long
ton, waa unanimously adopted, and
Messrs. Retallack and Pratt, already
accredited delegates of tne Nelson
board, will be given credentials also by
the association.
On the subject of timber loads ad-
m nistration a resoultion offered by the
Cranbrook delegates was defeated and
the following was adopted:
"That the Associated Boards of Trade
approves the action of the government
in tbe matter of the reserve of timber
"That we recommend the maintenance for the present of Buch reserves.
"That we recommend that no change
be made in tbe forms of existing leases
or licenses at present, or at all, until a.
full Investigation has been had as to
the extent of the timber resources of
the province and until the formulation
of a policy looking to the permanent
preservation of the forests; and
their administration with reference
chiefly to the future well being of tbe
people of the province."
The resolutions urging improved Imperial news service, land surveying,
game protection, Uie Alaska-Yukon exposition, public ownership of telephones,
fruit Inspection, and freight rates, tbe
substance of all of which ts familiar.
were unanimously adopted.
The convention will meet next year
at 1 rail.

The blaze which is the worst that has

A plain statement of the facts will
convince any one with a mind that the
whole campaign is hypocritical except
perhaps in such unfortunate cases as
John Oliver's and Hob Mcpherson's. A
Special kind of pardon is always humanely extended to such.
Practically every year from 3898 to
1907 bills similar to the Natal Act have
been enacted by the legislature of Hritish Columbia. EJvery year from I8i��8 to
1006 such hills were "reserved" by successive lieutenant-governors under orders trom Ottawa. The fact Is not dis-
puied. Not until this lust year was any
one Idiotic enough to suggest that each
leader of the House during those years
should resign. The leaders placed in
such positions have heen .Messrs. Turner, tieinlin. Martin, Dunsmuir, Prior
and McBride. The lieutenant-governors
have heen T. it. Mclnnes, Sir Henry
Joly and James  Dunsmuir.

thai   Sir   Wilfrid  Laurier  Is  able   to   in
form  the  House ol  Commons that no
such instructions wen* sent.
Kvery  one knows  now that   the  lieu-
tenant-governor reserved the hill or his
own accord without either advice at
i/ic-toria  or  Instructions  from  Ottawa.
Iu doing so he has done Ottawa Signal
service from a party point of view, but
it is unlikely that he foresaw that feature.
Of course hU conduct has been un
constitutional and has demonstrated his
unfitness for offloe. Kqnally of course.

Hut only Sir Wilfrid can remove him

sagely explains:  "He has the money."

also be continued westward fifty miles.
A large amount of bridge work is also
contemplated. Many wooden bridges

mystery which has surrounded the murder of her father, David T. Tennyson,
Which occurred on Kebrurary 27, 1U0G,
near the town of Frankfort, in Marshall
* ounty, about sixty miles northwest of
this city. Fur nearly two years the au*
thorities have vainly endeavored to unravel the mystery and obtain the necessary evidence agalnSt the guilty parties.
The murder occurred 011 the Tennyson farm, one mile- east of Frankfort.
On the night of the crime Mr. Tennyson and his wife, who were elderly
and well to-do, were sitting in the living room of their home. A daughter,
Mrs. Flora Hrock, who had, however,
been separated from her husband and
who went under the name of Flora
Tennyson, was In the sitting room with
her parents. The only other member
of Uie immediate family who lived
with the parents was George Tennyson,
a son of 21 years. George went to town
thai night. A little before eight o'clock
Flora went to her room which was upstairs.
Mr. Tennyson sat near the centre of
the room with his back to Mrs. Tenny
son, and was reading a paper. Suddenly there was a thunderous explosion accompanied by a crash of glass. The
concussion extinguished the lamps in
the house and stunned Mrs. Tennyson,
who bt iieved that a Lamp had explod
ed. VVhen she recovered from the
shock she groped her way to her hus- -
baud, but could not arOQXLSfl him. She
then hurried to Flora's room and tound
her daughter about half undressed just
getting ready to retire lor the night.
The daughter was unmoved by the explosion. She alierwards stated that she
thought it was a shot gun fired hy a
neighbor to scare coyotes from his
lln. Tennyson and her daughter hurried down the stairs, where ihey found
the father dead, lying limp iu his chair.
A hole in the back of his head near
th- base of the brain told tbe story of
the shooting.
Tbe authorities learned cf the crime
that night and at once took up the
search for the murderer or the murderers. Bloodhounds were put 011 tlu
c.ise and special detectives employed,
but never was sufficient evidence
brought to light to justify an arrest. A
print of a woman's shoo was found
right In line with the probable path taken hy the murderer. It measured exactly like Flora's foot. The sheriff located au old shot gun belonging tn the
family in a storehouse near the housi
which contained an empty shell. This
shell smelled of having been freshly
discharged and the detectives were of
the opinion thai this wns the weapon
m ed in the killing.
Within a few weeks afler the death
of her father Flora Tennyson was taken siik and died. It waa known before
th*- tragedy she had quarreled violently
with her father on several occasions because of the objections or her father to
the visits of a young nian named llor
aee Trosper to Flora.    Hut George Ten
nyson, the son, had also quarreled with
his father many times over mon'.y matters, so that so far as a motive was concerned   the  authorities  were   unable  to
make   a   decision.     Soon   after   Flora's
death  the son     George     left    Marshall
county   and   bought   a  farm   in   Ottawa
county.     It   was   the     general     opinion
when   he   left   Frankfort that  he   knew
more of the  tragedy than he cared  to
tell.      But   nothing   was   ever   done   in
the matter and  no arrests were made.
Two   weeks   ago,   however,   interest
iu tire famous case was revived by the
action of the relatives of the murdered
man.    Accompanied by Marshall county
officers     they     went to   the     home  of
George Tennyson and formally charged
him with knowledge of the crime.    He
was taken to town and  severely cross-
examined    for    several    hours.    For a
time   he   steadfastly    denied    that    he
knew any more concerning the tragedy
than, be  had  already   -told.     Under the
sweating   process,   however,   he   finally
broke down and sobbingly confessed to
the  secret   that he had  kept  since his
sister  Flora's  death.    He  said  that on
the   day   before   his sister died  he  was
titting   by   her   bed  fanning   her.     She
had  not  been able to talk or hear for
several days. She made known that she
wanted  a  pencil   and  paper,  which  her
brother gave her.    She wpote: "George,
I was the cause of father's death. Don't
tell anyone  unless you have to,"  which
she  signed.     This    written     confession
George  produced  from  his vault In the
Ottawa bank and handed over to the officers.    It is now believed that Mr. Tennyson's objection    to the    Intimacy between his daughter and Horace Trosper
prompted the crime, and every effort  Is
now being made to find out If any other
person   was   implicated   in   the  murder.
