Mr.   Dunlevy,     Merchant  of     Hazelton,

Vancouver, March 19.���A rush to the
scene of the alleged placer strike on
the Ingenika River or west fork of the
Flulay River in North-centraJ British
Columbia, is strongly deprecated by
Mr. Karl Dunlevy, a merchant of llaiel-
lon, who Is now in the city. Mr. Dun-
levy owns a claim there. He has recently sent In two different parlies via
11;,/..Hiui to ascertain the correctness
of the recent reports about the existence of rich ground lu that district.
"1 think the public should be acquainted with all the circumstances,"
said he.
"Last spring I grubstaked Louis
Hero, a prospector who was going into
that region on his own account. He
came oul lasl fall via Ashcroft aud wintered at Calgary. He ls now on his way
back to the Ingenika, travelling via
yuesnel. He will have to cover a distance of over seven hundred miles.
Mero wrote me briefly that he had
struck what he supposed to be good
ground. He said be reached bed-rock
at a depth of eight feet, and had found
gold. The letter lacaed many details.
Mero staked a claim for himself and
one  for  me.
"The lndefiuiteness of his letter
prompted me to co-operate with Mr.
Wm. Ellis of this city in sending iu
two other parlies via Hazelton. One
of them has been instructed to return
to Hazelton about April 1, and wire
me to the extent of the strike. If the
news is favorable we will send in a
large outfit wilh horses and supplies
this spring. Mr. Ellis is also represented there by a prospector named Fill-
more, whom he sent iu over eighteen
months ago via Edmonton. It would
be unwise for people to rush In there
until further particulars have been received. They would be face to face
with starvation as there is no surplus
of supplies In the region. I don't think
the number of men wintering on the Ingenika exceeds six or seven. Mero has
two partners ln his own layout. They
have been spending the winter whip-
sawing lumber for the purpose of making sluice boxes. The original discoverers of gold In the district are two
Swedes and I don't even know whether
they have located on the Ingenika or
somewhere else.'"
The Ingenika Is the wesl tork of the
Finlay River, nnd the latter river Joining the Parsnip, forms the Peace River.
The country is difficult of access via
Ashcrofl and Quesnel at this season of
the year. In the summer time the
journey can be made by trail and canoe
Parties going in will be obliged lo con-
si met their o'.vn boats as the trail Is
a poor one.
Mr. Nell Gethlng, who Is familiar
with Ihe the northern country, also
strongly deprecates the Idea of people
going to the new goldflelds until reliable Information reuches the outside.
Mr. (lelblng owns 240 acres of placer
ground on Pete Toy's Bar, Findlay
river. It Ib a dredging proposition, and
was located several years ago. Mr.
Gethlng has never visited the Ingenika
although he has spent several summers
In the dlstrlcl. Ho slated today thai
laBt summer he had met a prospector
named Goldle, who owns claims on the
Ingenika, and who was going out for
Supplies, Goldle did not enthuse over
the alleged strike. He said the prospects,   however,   were   excellent.

Chrisfain Science Ideas
Rev. F. Graham Describes Its System of Metaphysics as Mere
Unintelligible Nonsense.
That there is a very general interest
in the teaching and practice of ChriB-
tlan Scientists among the people of
Nelson was amply demonstrated last
night. The parish hall of St. Saviour'B
was crowded to the doors, many being
content to stand, while Rev. F. H. Graham delivered a lectu.e, in three parts,
on the metaphysics, theology and therapeutics of Christian Science. The
audience included many who are not ln
the habit of attending lectures.
E. A. Crease presided, and promptly
at 8 o'clock the lecture began.
Mr. Graham described Christian
Science as "a metaphysical system
which professes to interpret the science
of life as revealed by Jesus Christ, aud
claims to free men from the powers of
sin, disease and death."
As au explanation of his taking up
the subject, Mr. Graham said: "It is
not very long since men were content
to laugh at Christian Science as being
too manifest an absurdity to merit
s,-tiou.s thought. But such an attitude,
If it has not already changed is very
rapidly changing. For when you consider that here is a cull whose scope Is
so extraordinary as to cover the united
domains of metaphysics, theology aud
therapeutics, a cult whose claim is so
tremendous as to include Divine Inspiration more complete than any
vouchsafed since the dawu of the
Christian era, when you remember that
in a short life time of 42 years this
cult has made disciples running into
millions iu number, and amassed an aggregate wealth of $20,000,000, you are
forced to the conclusion that it Is too
serious a matter to joke about, and too
substantial an argument to consider
with a smile.
"Two dominant features stand out in
high relief. The first Is a woman, and
the second is a book. The woman is
Mary Morse Baker Glover Paterson
Eddy, and the book ls "Science and
Health, with Key to the Scriptures,"
and the book was written by the woman."
There followed a descriptive sketch
of what ls known of Mrs. Eddy, chiefly
from authoritative Christian Science
sources. Of the book and the claim
made for It by its author, her own
words were quoted: "No human pen or
tongue taught me the science contained
in this book and no tongue or pen can
overthrow it."
"The fundamentals of Christian Science are summarized In four propositions which to the author appear self-
evident and which she further states
'will agree in statement and proof
even If read backwards.' Mark Twain
says that rend backwards or forwards
or perpendicularly or at any given
angle they will agree���with anything.'
The propositions are:
1.���God Is all.
2.���God is good.   God Is mind.
3.���God,  spirit,  being  all,   nothing  Is
4.���Life, God, omnipotent good, deny
death, evil, sin, disease. Disease, sin,
evil, death, deny good, omnipotent God,
" 'The metaphysics of ChrlBtlan Science,' says Mrs. Eddy, 'prove the truth
hy Inversion. For example, there Is no
pain iu truth, and no truth In pain, no
matter in mind and no mind In matter,' " etc.
"The fabric of Christian Science."
Mr. Graham commented, "Is built upon
this foundation, and as Is the foundation, so is the superstructure, astonish
Ingly Incoherent and at the same time
serenely confident."
Mr Graham then stated In detail Mrs.
Eddy's deductions from her fundamental axioms, that there ls nothing real
but mind, therefore no body, no matter,
no physical universe, no need of food,
no possibility of real pain, disease or
death. "Curiously enough," was the
speaker's comment, "though there Is no
disease  and  no  body,  there  Is  such a
thing as bodily health, and the whole
book, Science and Health, is written to
teach us how to attain to It."
Reference followed to Mrs. Eddy's
term, "mortal mind," which is blamed
for the belief, which Is mere Illusion,
In the physical universe. Yet as mortal
ml ml has created all unrealities, and
ls itself A unreality, it follows that It
has created itself, though still nothing.
The rest of the treatment of Christian
Science as a system of Metaphsics
was devoted to revealing its many obvious and grotesque self-contradictions,
such as "Matter manifests nothing but
a material mentality," the assertion
that "mortal mind," which .is matter
and therefore nothing, does sometimes
act consciously, and the explanation
that the connecting link between matter
and mortal mind, neither of which exists at all, ls electricity.
This part of the lecture closed with
'Mrs. Eddy calmly obliterates the wonder-child of her own making, t mortal
mind), and our own belief ln a material world Ib after all not accounted for.
And bo we are driven to the conclusion
that the metaphysics of Christian Science is absolute aud unintelligible nonsense."
In referring to the theology of Christian Science, Mr. Graham conceded the
sincerity of its professors, hut be said
that they distort the plain meaning of
the scriptures in efforts to find support
for their peculiar vlewB. He quoted
Mrs. Eddy's "The theory of Three Persons in one God, (that is a personal
Trinity or Tri-unity) suggests heathen
gods rather than Lhe oue ever present
I-Am." Her language in reference to
Jesus Christ, the lecturer said, "is always reverent and guarded. His virgin-
birth is distinctly asserted and He is
declared to be the great master and
expounder of the science of metaphysical healing. As might be anticipated,
however, the strange ideas of divinity
which are inseparable from the system,
give to Mrs. Eddy's teaching a novelty
and strangeness which cannot be reconciled with the historic conception of
the Incarnation and the Atonement."
Mrs. Eddy's statement that Man is
co-existent with God and identical with
Him was described as "perilously near
to Pantheism," and her description of
sin as an "unconscious error" of the
mind  as  "the rankest Antinomianlsm."
After further quotations Mr. Graham
said: "Mrs. Eddy professes loyalty to
the Bible and yet rejects or denies almost every doctrine which it inculcate.,
and her presumption is exaggerated by
the fact that she poses as a Divinely
appointed interpreter of Holy Writ. Is
It an unfair Inference that the claim of
allegiance to the Bible is made by Mrs.
Eddy because she knows that so strong
a hold has it upon the hearts of men
that were she to openly declare her opposition to it large numbers would desert her cause?"
The reading of the passages in
which the word Adam is derived by
Mrs. Eddy from "A Dam," "Demens"
and "A Damn," was greeted by the
audience with unrestrained  laughter.
Prefatory to his analysis of the the-
reapeutlcs of Christian Science, Mr.
Graham propounded the general and
practical question: "Shall medicines
be used and physicians employed?"
which, he said, often required prompt
decision, and mistake or even delay
might be fatal.
The assertion, essential to the practice of Christian Scieuce, that the use
of drugs Implies a lack of faith ln God
and that such faith without drugs will
cure all Ills, was then examined ln the
light of New TeBtament teaching.
"The Issue ls not. as Christian Scientists would have It, 'What does the
Bible say about Divine healing?' but
'What does the Bible say In reference
to  remedies and physicians?' "
The essence of this wns declared to
be that "tinder normal conditions Qod
works only where we are not able."
ThLs was exemplified by the stories of
the miracles of Christ, and most clear
ly and forcibly ln Christ's reply to the
second temptation: "Thou shalt not
tempi the Lord, thy God." Neglect of
natural means fur curing disease and
trusting to miracles for recovery of
health was denounced as tempting or
experimenting  with  the  power of God.
As proof of Christ's belief in sickness
aud in physicians, the speaker cited
Christ's own conformity ln usuage ln
hit miracles, the story of -tlie good
Samaritan. "1 was sick and ye visited
me," "They that are whole need not a
physician but they that are sick." and
the relations to the rest of "Luke, the
beloved  physician."
The methods of Christian Science
healers were then expounded from the
speaker's personal knowledge of them
In Easlern Canada. The present and
absent treatment were detailed, and
the Insistence that the whole secret
was the Inlluence of mind ttivui mind.
As a rule the Healers have no knowledge of anatomy, physiology or pathology.
Mr. Graham gave an account of the
Metaphysical   College   In   Boston   from
which heirtriSA wyi'e 'jlirnnrt -rm?" ' aud
of tho sudden closing of it, when 300
pupils were clamoring for admission,
because of Mrs. Eddy's "conscientious
scruples"���coincident with the awakening of Bcruples in the minds of the
state authorities.
That cures have been effected by
"healers" was frankly conceded, but
"these cures are very largely effected
ln the cases of nervous and hysterical
disorders, iu which the symptoms are
alleviated by the quiet state of mind
and the strong expectation of a cure
into which the ptatient is brought by
the nature of the treatment he receives.
���Add to this the healing power of
nature, the vis me dlatrlx naturae, which
is always at work, whatever healing
system men emplloy,���and you will Bee
that his chances-, of success are not
But the danger and cruelty of depriving sufferers -of the results of medical knowledge ai id skill, especially of
neglecting anti-ta xln in cases of diphtheria, were deno unced.
The encouragei nent to quietness and
cheerfulness and to belief In the power
and will of God to treat when natural
remedies fall, wa s conceded and praised.
At the close a. vote of thanks to the
lecturer was pro posed by Rev. J. T.
FergtiKon and  urn mimously adopted.
W. J. Bryan, 48    Years Old Today, Will
Prepare for  Third Whirlwind
Fight for Presidency.
Chicago, 111., March 19.���William J.
Bryan twice the candidate of the
Democratic ps irty for President of the
United States,, and in the race track-
parlance, "th<�� one best bet" for the
nomination a .gain this year spent his
forty-eighth birthday in Chicago today. Mr. Ua-yan ls here to speak tonight at a u jeeting in the Seventh Regiment Anno ry, which will mark the formal openir ig of the Democratic campaign in t Jhicago. The demonstration
has been t Arranged by the Bryan league,
of which former Mayor Carter H. Harrison is tlie .head. During the day word
was passed around that this was Mr.
Bryan's birthday and for several hours
the distinguished Nebraskan was kept
busy receiving the good wishes of
friends and admirers.
Though it is now nearly twelve
years since he received his first nomination for the highest office in the land,
Mr. Bryan is still a comparatively
young man. He ��s in the prime of vigorous manhood and well qualified physically to stand tbe strain of the coming campaign. Twelve years of almost constant travel and speechmaking
have made no visibBe inroads on his
physical  resources.
If he is nominated at ,'he Denver convention next July Mr. Bryan intends to
start at once a strenuox is campaign
that will equal If not ecllj,'se his wonderful -reoprd aJready est. bllshed in
this direction. Mr. Bryan is the originator  of  the   whirlwind   campaign.
Mr. Bryan's speaking campaign of
1S9B lasted approximately four mouths
and there were on an average of 25
campaigning days in each month. In
this campaign he made more than 2,100
speeches, short and long. During the
last three months of the cam.aalgn It
was nothing unusual for him to make
20 speeches in a single day. Sometimes
the number ran as high as 35 for the
day. But at the end ot the camipaign
.Mr. Bryan apparently was ln : Is good
physical   condition   as   at   the    start
Four years later he entered his second whirlwind campaign and, as pugilists would say, he was In the pink of
condition. His first big effort was his
speech of acceptance made ln. Indian-
apollB on a day bo hot that m any persons were overcome ln the crowd.
With such a beginning. Mr. B ryan proceeded to break his speechni aking record of the first campaign. O n one occasion, working westward from St.
Louis, he made his first Bpee-cti of the
day at 5 o'clock In the mornl ng and
his laat at midnight, which in. ant an
almost continuous performance of 19
hours. And his midnight speech was
said to have been made with a.'l the
vigor of a man who had no pre vlous
public  appearance  during  the day.

Majority in Committee
for Suppression
Probing of Imperial Palp Company
Deals Prevented by Machine
Members'  Votes.
Ottawa. March 19.���D. Finnie, as.
sistant general manager of the Bank of
Ottawa, was before the commons public accounts committee today lu connection with transactions between tne
bank and T. A. Burrows, M. P. for
Dauphin, respecting labor and purchases
In Western Canada. Finnie gave evidence as to two cheques bearing on
Umber berth No. 1031, for $17,676 and
$14,1)00 respectively. Burrows had a
small account in the bank, but a special
deposit had been made to cover these
two cheques. He had no knowledge of
the Imperial Pulp company, but General Manager Burns ot the Bank ot
Ottawa had given instructions that letters addressed to that company were
to be given to the bank. On January
27, 1904, on a similar transaction, two
cheques for $6,000 and $6,000 on timber
berth 1122 were shown. On the same
Burrows had deposited $11,000 to hie
Opposition members lnslster upon
the production of Burrows' account by
the Bank of Ottawa, but Chairman Clark
ruled that the bank was not obliged to
disclose dealings with its customers.
Vhe man who knew best about these
transactions and cheques in question
was Mr. Burrows himself, and the chairman said the member tor Daupnin
should be heard.
On further demand by the opposition
for Burrows' accounts the chairman
ruled against them and appeal has been
made to the committee which resulted
in a vote of 23 to 16 in favor of Clark's
McLean, Lunenburg, moved that Turriff, M. P., and Miss Munroe of the Interior department, be summoned to
give evidence next Wednesday. Turriff

Senator Campbell's bill to prevent
shipping companies from putting
clauses in bills of lading which excuse
them from responsibility for goods damaged in transit, came before the senate
this morning. Campbell claimed that
a similar measure of protection had already been obtained in the United
States and that as a result American
goods obtained more favorable rates of
Insurance than Canadian goods. Representatives of railway and steamship
lines and the Dominion marine association asked a little more time to consider the bill. This waa agreed to and
the hearing adjourned.
Militia orders state that attention
is directed to the following order from
the war office: "The army council
notices with regret that no officers of
the military forces of Canada, Australia,
New Zealand or South Africa, has been
sent this year to the staff college. Being convinced of the great Importance
of forming an Imperial general staff,
the army council would be glad ltstepa
could be taken to urge on the governments concerned the great desirability
of sending qualified officers to the staff
college each year from His Majesty's
oversea dominions.
The commons railway committee today reported a bill granting an extension of time to the Trans-Canada Railway company to start and complete Its
proposed line from Quebec to tbe Pacific coast.
Frank Shutt, chemist of the central
experimental farm, was before the commons agricultural committee yesterday
and emphasised the fact that continued
cropping from year to year ln spite ot
the expedient of summer fallowing, was
bound sooner or later to diminish the
productive power of the soil in Northwestern Canada. Farmers should consider before It ls too late how to conserve that power.

Thur.day, March 19, 1908.
No part of the programme announced
at Halifax by Mr. R. L. llordun aroused
greater Enthusiasm than the declaration
in favor of taking tile civil service out
of politics, freeing members of parliament of the burden of patronage and
thus killing the spoils system at a blow.
The spoils system is not new. It
flourished once ln Briton. Human nature finds It hard to resist the temptation to use power and opportunity for
the personal benefit of self and friends.
'lie system was the secret, or the chief
par) of It, of the strength of New York's
Tammany llall, and found its counterpart In evt rj city and state In the
American union, hy the desperate efforts or tin- American people during the
last live years the grasp of the system
lias been loosened and freedom is now
slowly being won.
It was established ln Canada at a
very early date. The Family Compact
waa an organisation that existed solely
foi tin- purpose of retaining office and
enjoying emoluments. But lhe methods
employed by the Family Compact were
crude and could only be effective under
conditions prevailing at the time of Its
ascendancy, a small population, thinly
scattered over a vast extent of territory,
���with no organization, no community of
ulin and hardly any means of communication.
The real development of the spoils
system as It exists now, and of the
Machine to administer It, occurred under the  last Liberal  administration of
Ontario, in the last years of the regime
of Sit Oliver .Mowat, of A. S. Hardy and
G. \V. Ross. Its establishment on an
efficient basis and the broadening of
its scope to cover tlie whole of the Dominion vvius the work of \V". T. R.
Preston, once Liberal organizer for Ontario, later provincial librarian, now in
the employ of the Dominion government, in what capacity no member of
the cabinet seems to know. As a matter of fact, which is hardly denied, he
is paid a salary for simply keeping out
of Canada where he has long been
wanted to give evidence in the trial of
certain protested elections.
Mr. Borden's promise to overthrow
tlie disgraceful and corroding system
was hailed with universal approval, uf
course, civil service reform was a plank
ln the Liberal platform of 181)3, but
about as much effort has been made to
effect it as to "wipe out the iniquitous
system of  protection."
The Liberals huve no more Intention
of allowing merit and ability to weigh
against party advantage ln the making
of appointments to the civil service,
than they have of conducting clean elections.
Their only reply to Mr. Borden's advocacy of reform was a cj nical sneer
and un Insinuated aeeusatiou of Insincerity. .Mr. Pugsley hud the impudence
to associate Mr. Borden's name, guardedly of course, with an alleged corruption scheme in New Brunswick, though
he had to confess complicity to account
for his pretended knowledge of it. Hut
iu spite of repeated challenges from
the opposition benches, that would be
insutiug If Mr. Pugsley were capable of
being Insulted, he has not dared to even
refer to bis slanders in  the house.
An ill-advised, though probably strongly provoked, resolution by a Conservative county association in New Brunswick was brazenly represented by the
Machine press as a repudiation of Mr.
Borden's advocacy of civil service reform by the whole Conservative party
of Canada.     The   local   Machine   organ
waa guilty with the rest. Its attention
has been called to the falsehood. It
has nothing to say in reply but has forgotten that manners and common decency would suggest a retraction.
There will be general relief and sat-
Isfactlon at tlie decision of the citizens
of Nelson not to allow the work of
advertising the city lapse. It Is now
"up to" every citizen to do his best to
strengthen Uie hands of the committee.
Herman    Billik,    Wholesale     Murderer.
Will   Hang   in   Chicago   Unless
Governor   Intervenes.
Chicago, March li*.���Tomorruw is
the day fixed for the execution of Herman Ililiik, whose alleged crimes are
without parallel in the criminal records
of Chicago, unless it be in the cases of
Bluebeard" Hoch or the arch-murderer H. H. Holmes. Notwithstanding
the fact that the Illinois Supreme
Court has affirmed the verdict of the
trial court, friends of Billik are still
hopeful that he may escape the noose.
Pleas for executive clemency have been
made, based on the alleged confession
of one of the principal witnesses
against Billik that he lied on the stand
and had been coached in his story by
the police.
The crime for which Billik was given
the death penalty was the alleged murder of Mrs. Mary Vrzal. Martin Vrzal,
husband of the woman, was a milk, vendor, living with his family in West
Nineteenth street. When he met Billik
in the summer of 19U4 Billik informed
Vrzal that a rival milk vendor was his
enemy and offered to cast a spell that
would ppjtect Vrzal from harm. Vrzal
agreed, and a potion of white fluid
was brewed on the Vrzal stove and
strewn across the gateway of the Don-

Rossland Miner rjaan, Mr. Schofield said
that the recent session of the legislature was a remarkably successful one.
The opposition was comparatively mild,
owing to ita being largely in the minority, and it did not oppose the government as strongly as it did at previous
sessions. Tne government, he said,
made a most advantageous bargain
with the Grand Trunk Pacific railway.
It was fafr to the railway, and by its
terms the province lost nothing to
which  it  was justly entitled.
Another measure which will result to
the advantage of the province was the
bill passed exempting railways from
taxation, for a period of ten years after
they are constructed. This does not
apply to the lines which are already
constructed. Tin* result of this piece ot
legislation, he said, will be that the
railways will be built quicker than was
formerly the case, and what the country needs more, perhaps, than anything
else is railway transportation, which
will greatly aid Us development. The
bill will affect such railways as the
V. V. & E., the Kootenay Central and
tbe Albernl extension of the E. & N.,
and, of course, other railways like the
Grand Trunk Pacific that are yet to be
The government bill loaning $10,000
to the Canada Zinc Co., at Nelson, will
be tlie salvation of the Slocan and the
Lardeau, if the process of the company
proves a success, and It Is generally believed that it will work out satisfactorily. Zinc ores, if they contain a certain excess of zinc, are so heavily penalized by the smelters that the mining
of them is often unprofitable. It is believed that this process will make it
profitable to operate many mines that
are now idle. All of the zinc used in
Canada is imported, and if it can be
extracted here from the ores it will
save millions of dollars to the country-
Mr. Schofield, when questioned as to
the appropriations for roads In the
Ymir district would say no more than
that he had  good  luck in  this  regard.

many gratifying things to say of tbe

Taking   of   Lucknow.
Today is the tiOtn annlversay of the
taking of Lucknow by the British forces
tinder Sir Colin Campbell, afterwards
Lord Clyde of Clydesdale. The fighting was continuous from the 2nd of
March. Captain Wolseley and Lieut.
Roberts, now Field Marshals Lords
Wolseley and Roberts, both took an active part in the assaults, the former on
one occasion turning what was intended as a feint by the sacrifice of the
forlorn hope which he commanded into
a successful attack. The only survivor
uf that fight in Nelson is Sergeant
Thomas Luscombe.
Old   Battles  Refought.
A curious crowd collected near The
Daily Canadian office early this afternoon. The attraction was one white
man surrounded by a group of Sikhs
whose animated gestures looked to the
inexperienced to be menacing to the
solitary European. There was no
trouble brewing, however. The white
man was Sergeant Thomas Kinahan
who had discovered among the dusky
veteran "Soldiers of the Queen" some
comrades in arms of the days of
'Afghan Bobs," and was talking over
the days of the march to Kandahar,
and the hot fight around Kabul, Sher-
pur and  Kandahar.

sketches have for their subject the
temporary departure of Dr. LaBau for
Spokane and his return. The first one
shows the doctor taking on his professional look, and getting ready for Spokane. The next picture ls ope of the
doctor in his farm clothes, with a disgusted look on his face, and declaring
that he wants to get back to the ranch
onc*j more. Both sketches are excellent
portraits of the doctor. The artist seems
to have caught the true expression of
his genial subject.
"The   Average   Man."
The lecture has not been a familiar
form of entertaining In Nelson. Tonight the citizens have an opportunity
of listening to a lecture by one who has
acquired and maintained a high reputation throughout the- states of Washington, Idaho and Montana. Dr. W. J.
Mindley will lecture on "The Average
Man," a subject of interest to all. The
doctor is said by those who have heard
him before to have the happy faculty
of putting solid and instructive matter
into very attractive form. The lecture
will be given in the opera house this
evening beginning at H o'clock. The
proceeds will be applied to the pub
llclty bureau fund. T. O. Procter will
preside. The expenses of the enterprise are guaranteed by Geo. P. WellH.

Death of W. Roaa.
William Ross, a resident of Nelson
and vicinity for many years, met instant death yesterday afternoon about
11.45 at the Honnington plant of the
West Kootenay Power and Light company, where he has been employed. He
was showing C. V. Dake and J. H.
Matheson over the plant, and opened a
door leading to a high voltage switch.
The current probably leaped. It struck
his right wrist with the force ot 20,000
volts, and he fell dead. Dr. Hawkey
was summoned at once but there was
never any hope of revival. Coroner
Or. Arthur was notified and investigated last night. After viewing the
body and the place of death, and hearing the statements of those who saw
the event, he decided that no inquest
was necessary, and gave orders for
bringing In the body today. William
Ross was born in Scotland 32 years ago,
and married in Nelson three years ago.
Mrs. Ross has been living with him at
Honnington lately. The deceased was
a watchmaker by trade but has followed many callings. His last was tend-
iug machinery. He haa one brother ln
Montreal. Another, a telegraph operator, died in Ashcroft a few years ago.
The funeral arrangements will be announced  later.
