Engineer Wooton Adv ses Re-
lining of Reservoir at Estimated Cost of $6000���Report in Full
Reporting upon an examination of
the Delta water system, which he
made on June 10th, Civil Engineer
G. E. Wooton, of New Westminster,
recommended the carrying out of repair and other work entailing an
estimated outlay of $14,000: $6,000
for relining the reservoir; $3,500
for electric motor and pump, wltn
connections; $2,500 for boreholes
and contingency work; $1,000 for
contingencies, and $1,000 for supervision.
So thoorugh is the consulting
engineer's report, and so important
his findings, that the paper, which
was received and filed at the re.ent
council meeting, is given below:
"In company with Reeve Benso*.,
Councillor Dennis, and Mr. Clarke

practicable, and obtaining all Information obtainable, I beg to submit
for your consideration the following
"Source of supply.���The bulk of
the water is derived 'rom six 3-inch
boreholes driven to a depth of some
120 feet, the remainder coming from
one spring near the pump well and
from spring entering such pump well
at or near the bottom of the same.
The combined yield of these eight
springs proved on test to be about
297 imperial gallons per minute. Of
this total I estimate tha proportion
discharged into the pump well from
the six boreholes at 250 gallons per
Pump well and pump.���The pump
well Into which all the springs discharge Is thirteen feet six inches In
diameter and twenty feet deep; Its
liquid capacity being 893 gallons per
foot In depth. The water is drawn
through a five-inch suction pipe by
a high speed centrifugal pump driven
by a 45 horsepower electric motor
and discharged Into a 12-Inch combined pumping and distribution main.
The pump which I am informed is
designed lo discharged 350 gallons

in the electric motor to do the work
of which the pump is capable, bu"
all pumps ot this type lose a considerable portion of their efficiency
when worked under different conditions to those they are designed for.
"The actual pressure on the delivery main and pump when discharged into the supply main was
36 pounds per square inch, equal to

"When the pump is out of use
ycur only supply is from the six
boreholes which deliver Into a Jtand-
pipe twelve feet high, and I can form
no opinion of the consumption under
these conditions, for as the water

continuously decrease.

and if possible 600 gallons per minute. I believe this will be readily
obtained within reasonable distance
of the pump station, and I would
suggest the putting down of two flinch boreholes near the foot of the
hill, not too close to each other or
to the existing boreholes, and the
discharge from such could be piped
into the pump at a level of some
five feet below the ground.
"The discharge from the existing
boreholes could in my opinion be
increased some 25 per cent, by carrying the water therefrom to the pump

below ground, but this alont* wouid

New Westminster citizens and
representatives of the municipalities
round about joined In a ceremony
of great importance for the whole or
the Lower Fraser on Thursday, when
at two o'clock Mayor Gray turned
on the steam and the first pile of
the Greater New Westminster Harbor
improvement work was driven at tne
foot of Eighth street in the Royal
City amid the cheers of a large garnering. Delta was represented by
Reeve Benson and Magistrate John
Previous to the ceremony of driving the first pile, Mr. J. D. Tu\lor,
M.P., spoke at a luncheon which \'*as
attended by representatives of boards
of trade and municipal councils from
the neighb-ring sections of the
Lower Mainland. The federal member announced that he had the assurance of the department of a deep
sea channel to the sea being actively
prosecuted and that two dredges
v. ould be available to carry on the
work continuously for ten days,
which would give a deep channel to
the sea. By putting a sweeping
dredge to work on the chann.l It
could then be kept clear for vessels
of deep draught. He emphasized the
great value of a large t 'image or
coastwise trade and look. for tho
time when there would be ou, the
Fraser a port second to none In Canada.
President Findlay, of the Vancouver Progress Club, brought the greetings or that body. Then followed
the first pile driving.
Allan Purvis, president of 'he Progressive Association, conducted the
ceremonies, opening the proceedings
with a brief speech and introducing
the subsequent speakers, who nominally were restricted to five miiutes
but, as a fact, averaged above that
Aid. White, chairman of the city
harbor committee, followed Mr. Purvis and was followed In turn by H.
H. Stevens, M.P., of Vancouver, who
laid stress on his belief that the
work of which this ceremony was
the formal initiation was of great
importance to the whole lower mainland.
F. J. MacKenzie, M.P.P., dwelt on
the interest of his riding of Delta
in the work undertaken by this city
and believed that what was good
for New Westminster was good for
the whole of the Fraser Valley.
Mayor Gray was the last speaker
on the list and opened his address
by reading a telegram from Premier
Sir Richard McBride, in which the
sender congratulated the city on the
event "of the day and prophesied the
great future on which New Westminster might safely count.
Then all was ready for the actual
physical driving of the pile, which
was already driven mentally, and the
big driver rose and fell on the head
of the timber. The cedar stick had
already been  placed In position.
The pile driven, Mr. Purvis called
for the national anthem and so the
historic ceremony of driving the flrst
pile in New Westminster harbor improvements came to an end.
One   of   those   di_ag._e_ble   wrangles   which   too   often   arise   to   mar
good   sport,   occurred   between   Lad-

insisted   that  a  contest  be  held.
Ladner pointed out to Westham
that a contest on the following day,
which was a holiday, would draw
a much larger gate, but Westham
was obdurate.
The consequence .was that when
the time arrived for the Inauguration

not present, EL Smith was away,
as was also J. Condy, the latter being the one who was to take tho
place of Dennis, whose foot had be**n
severely injured.
Whether to play and on what
terms to play led to a long altercation which threatened to develop into
a deadlock. About eight o'clock,
with daylight fast waning, it was
settled that each team should play
with but ten men and that the contest should be not a league bul an
exhibition   game.

Property   Owners   on   No.   S   Road
Willing to Cede Necessary Strip.
to Facilitate Construction.
STEVESTON. Lulu island, July 8.
���Property owners on the No. 5 road
the thoroughfare running directly
across Lulu Island from Woodward's
Landing to Fraser avenue in South
Vancouver, are practically unanimous in a willingness to cede a strip
to the municipality, in order that
the street may be adapted to a car-
line, a strip seven feet wide on each
side. The cession of these fourteen
feet would make the road 80 feet
Property owners to the number of
forty-seven have signed a petition
to the municipal council of South
Vancouver, Vancouver city, Ladner
and Richmond, requesting these
bodies to use their utmost endeavors
to secure the construction of a car
line ever the No. 5 rond by the B. C.
Electric Co. In this petition willing-
Ingness to cede the land needed is
It Is pointed out that the early expenditure of J.I.-'.OOO by the provincial government on a ferry between
Ladner and Woodward's justifies the
construction of a car line, as over
it there would be a great amount of
traffic from the Delta.
The subject will be brought before

A condition of the sale is that

thus it must always remain uncertain whether the colt's performance
in the Derby was or was not the
measure of his ability and of that of
his opponents. Apart from the keen
disappointment experienced by Mr.
Bower Ismay, the son of Desmond
and Veneration II was an excellent
bargain from a merely commercial
point of view. As a yearling he cost
3,200 guineas, and, including the

Servia Declares War on Bulgari.

O BUCHAREST,   July    3.��� O
O King Charles  today ordered O
O the general    mobilization of O
O the Roamanian army.     It is O
O believed  certain    that  Rou- O
O mania  has  decided   to   fight O
O beside Servia and Greece in O
O the hope of grasping part of O
O the    territory    taken    from O
O Turkey    by the    Bulgarians. O
BELGRADE, Servla,. July. 3.���
After two days of the most stubborn fighting the Bulgarian forces to
which Servians have been opposed
are retreating along the whole line,
according to dispatches from the
front which were received this afternoon by the War Department, lt
is stated that the Servians have been
almost uniformly successful in the
various engagements and that yesterday they captured 1.00 Bulgarians after a battle in which the
losses were heavy on both sides.
At It Again.
VIENNA, July 3.���Servia formally
declared war on Bulgaria tonight,
according to a despatch received
here tonight from Uskub. The Servian army headquarters are at
Uskub and King Peter and Premier
Pachitch also are there.
Greek  Advances.
ATHENS, Greece, July 3.���Official
advices from the front to the Greek
war office today declare that the
Greeks, aiding the Servians, continue
their advance, inflicting heavy losses
on the Bulgarians and capturing several important positions. The
Greek losses, the despatches say,
have been considerable. No definite
figures are announced.
Turkey's Share.
Serious danger that Turkey will take
a hand in the Balkan struggle between Greece, Servia and Bulgaria
became imminent today when the
Sultan notified the Powers that, despite the preliminary peace agreement recently signed, Turky reserves
the right to fight if the new war
spreads to Macedonia.
The impression here Is that Turkey, if she finds the former Balkan
allies greatly weakened by their
internecine strife will summon all
her forces and strive to retake and
hold some of the European territory
of which she was deprived by the
Balkan victors. The Turkish entry
into the field would be regarded as
ominous of possible complications
between the Powers themselves.
Witnesses at Indian    Trial    Repeat
Former Evidence���Moses Paul
Case May End Shortly.
A succession of clear-eyed, soft-
voiced ranchers passed through the
witness box this forenoon on the resumption of the trial of Moses Paul
for being accessory after the murder
of Constable Kindness on May 3,
1912, at Clinton.
The silence of the wild seems to
have stamped its mark on all the
witnesses, white and Indian, and their
answers to counsel were seldom
pitched above a whisper, and yet
every syllable was clearly heard all
over the court room. Nothln-; new
was elicited, the evidence being a
repetition of that heard at the Spintlum trial. Truron, Carson, Billy
Decker, Chief of Police Fernie, all
gave evidence.
It is expected now that the trial
will finish tonight, and in the event
o! a conviction It is extremely doubtful whether the charge of murdering
White will be proceeded with.

GETTYSBURG, Fa., -uly 3.���
About one-third of the civil War
veterans who have been here celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of
the battle of Gettysburg are enroute
to their homes today, most of the
others merely awaiting the coming
tomorrow of President Wilson. This
will be the first time in history that
a southern born president has visited
the battlefield and Wilson's reception will be enthusiastic. A detachment of Confederate veterans
will meet the president at the depot
and give their famous rebel yell.
Today was governor's day, fourteen governors being present. Governor Sulzer, of New York, and Governor Cox, of Ohio, were among the
principal speakers. A congressional delegation, headed by Vice-President Marshall, inspected the battlefield before the speech making started.
The state constabulary is making
every effort today to apprehend the
men who stabbed seven others here
last night in the dining room of the
Gettysburg hotel . A fight started
when several men aroused the anger
of a veteran in blue by adversely
criticising Abraham Lincoln. The
veteran disappeared in the melee and
his identity is not known. He jumped to his feet and soundly berated
Lincoln's detractors.
The men who were stabbed, the
police say, are those who came to
the aid of the veteran. The wounded
men are Quartermaster Sergeant Edward J. Carroll, U.S.A.; David Far-
bor, a member of the state constabulary; John D. Maughln, Malcolm
Griffin, Charles Stialer, Hayden
Renlsbecker and Harry A. Root, Jr.

Mr. Stuart Henderson appeared

objections to the jurisdiction that he

Kindness. He related the various

In view of the British Admiralty's
efforts to secure adequate supplies

of oilfields in Papua is of the highest importance to that country. If
the anticipations of the discoverers

Papua is certain to reach the largest proportions and will revolutionize
development there. It is well known
that the Admiralty are almost at
their wit's end to discover new
sources of oil supplies in view of

A Hundred Years Aro the Sluinnoii
nnd lhe Chesapeake Fought
Their Good Fight.
tFrom The British Columbian.)
On June 1, a hundred years ago,
II.M.S. the Shannon and the U. S.
frigate Chesapeake engaged In a
famous naval battle off the New
England coast. Tlie follcving simple but Interesting narrative, o_-
fttlally transmitted to his superior
officer by Ca.pt. Broke, of the
Shannon, tells how the Union .lack
-was triumphant. And while peace
conferences and peace centenaries
are now the popular Interest of the
<lay, it ls well for Canadians to recall' with pride and gratitude, as
well thev Bhould, the deeds of brave
Britishers in the days of old.
Shannon, Halifax, June 6, 1813.
Sir,���I have the honor to inform
jou that being close in with Boston
"lighthouse, in H.M.S. under my command, on the 1st inst., 1 had the
pleasure of seeing that the United
"States frigate Chesapeake (whom we
hail long been watching) was coining
out of the harbor to engage tho
Shannon: 1 took a position betweun
Cape Ann and Cape Cod, and then
>ovi* to for him to join us���tin-
enemy came down in a very handsome manner, having three American ensigns flying; when closing
with us he sent down his royal
yards. I kept the Shannon's up, expecting the breeze would die away.
At half-past five p.m. the enemy
hauled up within hail of us on the
starboard side, and the battle began both ships steering full under
the top sails; after exchanging between two and three broadsides, the
enemy's ship fell on board of us,
ner mizzen-channels locking in with
our fore-rigging. I went forward
to ascertain her position, and observing that the enemy were flinching
from their guns, gave orders to prepare for boarding. Our gallant
bands appointed to that service immediately rushed in under their
respective officers, upon the enemy's
decks, driving everything before
them with irresistible fury. The
enemy made a desperate, but disorderly resistance.
Union Jack Triumphant.
The  firing continued  at all    the
gangways, and between the tops, but
In  two  minutes'   time     the  enemy
���were  driven  sword  In  hand     from
every post.    The American flag was
hauled  down,   and   the   proud     old
Dritish   Union   floated     trfcirnphanf-
over it.    In another    minute    they
ceased firing from below and called
for quarter.    The whole of this service  wae  achieved   in   15     minutes
from tho commencement of the action.    I have to lament the loss of
many of my gallant shipmates, buH
thcy fell exulting ln their conquest.
My brave first lieutenant, Mr. Watt,
was slain in the moment of victory,
In the act  of  hoisting the    British
colors;  his death is a severe loss to
the service.    Mr. Aldham, the purser,  who  had   spiritedly  volunteered
the charge of a party of small-arm
men, was killed at his post on the
gangway.     My   faithful   old     clerk,
Mr. Dunn, was shot by his side; Mr.
���Udhnm lias left a widow to lament,
his loss.    1  re<iuest the commander-
in-chief will  recommend  her to the
protection of my Lords Commission-*
-ers of the Admiralty.   My   veteran
boatswain,   Mr.  Stephens,   has  lost
an arm. He fought under Lord Rodney on April 12.    I trust his age and
services  will   be  duly   rewarded.     I
:nn  happy to say thai   Mr. Samwell,

The Valiant Crew.
No expressions I can  make use of
can do justice to the merits of my
"rsliant   officers and crew; the   calm
courage   they   displayed   during   the
cannonade, and the tremendous precision   of  their   tire,   could   only   be
equalled   by   the   ardor  with   which
they rushed to the assault,    i re-
commend them all warmly to the
protection of the commander-in-chief.
Having received a severe sabre
wound at the first onset, whilst

beg to recommend these officers^
most strongly to the commander-in-
chief's patronage, for the gallantry
they displayed during the action, and
the skill and judgment they evinced
in the anxious duties which afterwards devolved upon them. To Mr.
Btongh, the acting master, I am

Chesapeake is a fine frigate and
mounts 411 guns, 18 on her main
deck, two-and-thirties on her quarter deck and forecastle. Both ships

as perfect, as if they had only been

The complete history of how F. J.
Cummiskey, inspector of Indian
agencies In the soutu .astern B. C,
by diplomacy and by reason of his
thirty years' experience in the interior, got Paul Spintlum and Moses
Paul, "the outlaw Indians, not only
to give themselves up but to carry
his grips to the train tnat was to
take them to the Kamloops jail
rivals in interest the best stories of
the successful dealings ot Governor
Sir James Douglas with the redmen
of the province in the early days.
Out of a crowd of 150 Indians ln
the chief's meeting house on the
Bonaparte reserve, In the Nicola
valley at the request of Mr. Cummiskey, the two fugitives stepped
stoically as any Fenlmore Cooper
characters. Invited by Inspector
Cummiskey to bid goodbye to their
friends and go with him, the two
young braves who were accused of
three murders, went through the
crowd shaking hands with men, wo-
ment and children, some of the men
and women being those who had
frolicked with them as boy, and girls
together on the reserve in happier
days. This shook even their stoicism
and there were tears In the bold,
brown eyes when they had given the
last handshake aud came forward
with their hands to their foreheads
in token of submission to the white
It was only a momentary weakness, however, and no other sign of
It has been shown since that time
when the handclasps of their friends
were still warm on their palms.
Since then Paul Spintlum has been
found guilty of the murder of Constable Kindness and Moses Pm.1 has
to face the charge of being an accessory!
Cummiskey Speaks.
Inspector Cummiskey, who. in
spite of his Polish sounding name, is
an Irishman, with a rich brogue and
a Celtic immagination, told The
British Columbian how he did it, before leaving for Vancouver on Saturday evening, whence he took the
train for Kamloops. His story was
as follows:
"It was In June, 1912, that I interviewed Chief Jimmy Retasket, of
the Llllooet Indians at Llllooet, Re-
tasket's natural sagacity and superior knowledge of English placing
him above the other chiefs and rendering him more useful for my purpose of obtaining assistance to bring
in Paul Spintlum and Moses Paul.
"I asked Retasket If he could induce the two to surrender, but he
said that he could not speak the
Shuswap language, the fugitives belonging to that tribe, and if he attempted to go near the Shuswaps he
would probably be shot down.
"Seeing no leverage in this quarter, I abandoned it.
Praise for Chiefs.
"I may say to th credit of all the
chiefs in the district, that, apart
from their immediate friends, all
were willing and anxious that law
and order should prevail and that
the constables should be assisted.
For example, Chief Louis, of Kamloops, supplied the police with the
be3t trackers he had, and although
over 80 years old, himself drove
many days visiting the different
chiefs and advising them to assist ln
the administration of justice. All
efforts though were futile while
Chief Camille, Canoe Creek, Chief
Jimmy Gabriel, of Clinton, and Chief
I Joe Morris, of High Bar, remained
stoic and silent.
"After   knowing   the  Indians   for
thirty year, I do not believe in the
. efficacy of mere de-splay of force in
I a case  like  this.     Persuasion  is a
(stronger weapon.     I was firmly convinced  that  as  soon  as  I  could   Interview the chiefs closely connected
with  the  fugitives,    I  could    bring
about good results.     Wltn this end
ln view, while making a tour of my
inspectorate   in   November,   1912,   I
stopped  off  at  Clinton.
Warned at Clinton,
"I was told by the^w.ilte residents of the Clintoir district that
the Indians In that vicinity had
grown bold and defiant and to test
the veracity of this report I decided
to summon, the chiefs to come to me
instead of me visiting them. At
my command Camilla Jimmy Gabriel and Joe Moses came to see nie
at Clinton.
"I reviewed the whole situation
with each of these chiefs separately; first as to their duties as chiefs
and then as to why they had not
brought In the two outlaws.
"The chiefs said they were glad
I had come and talked with them;
that no person had talked so to
them since Judge Begble had talked
to their fathers and Judge Walkem
had talked to them.
"As to why they did not bring In
I the suspects, they explained that
they thought they had not been well
treated by the police. Their people
had heen put on their reserves and
surrounded there and Chief Jimmy
Gabriel had heen kept in the Clinton jail for twenty-three days, merely for reason that the police believed he knew where the fugitives were
and would not tell.
Great Pow Wow.
"After Interviewing each chief
separately I talked to the three of
them together. I pointed out to
them the law which governed chiefs.
Chiefs must be mora!, honest, temperate and competent. For lack of
any one of these qualifications I
could have a chief deposed, and
the count on which I would be compelled to act ln regard to them If
Spintlum   and   Paul   were   not   sur
rendered before the end of the year
would be incompetence. While I
assumed them that 1 came with a
good heart and good will on this
occasion, I also assured them that if
my wishes were not carried out I
should come again in a different
"I might say that tne sudden
change in the attitude of these
chiefs was almost as dramatically
complete as that of Paul on the road
to Tarsus. Their faces lit up anu
one chief said, "I have lied to the
constables but I will not lie to you."
"They asked me to write a letter
to chief Major Churchill, chief of
Leon Creek. I wrote him a note
and told the chiefs to deliver in person the words I told to them to him.
They promised me that they would
hold a meeting among uieniselves
and send for me again when they
wanted me. 1 heard nothing further until I received a wire from
Jimmy Retasket asking me to come
to Bonaparte Reserve on important
"This was on December 24, last
year. I knew the telegram was
concerned with the fugitives but on
consideration I concluded that when
I arrived at Bonaparte Reserve I
might be told that the two Indians
were 100 miles from there and it
was not my desire to undertake a
long trip up the depth of winter. I
wired back, 'What Is the trouble?
What do you want? Answer.'
Would Give Up.
"This wire Chief Retasket took
to Constable W. Burr, ot Ashcroft,
telling him that he was afraid I
would not come. Burr said, 'tell
him what you want, as he asks you,
and he will come.' He said chiefs
wanted to give the boys up to him.
Mr. Burr wired me to that effect. I
started for Ashcroft on December
27 and on December 28 I was met
by Ch'.efs Jimmy Retasket, of Llllooet; Major Churchill, Leon Creek;
Bod Shelqua, Pavilion; joe Moses,
High Bar, and Camille, Canoe Creek.
Dick Bazil, of Bonaparte, was not
present, as he had remained on the
Bonaparte Reserve in charge of two
"They told me they were glad I
had come. They wanted to give up
the boys, but no police should ocme.
I informed the chiefs that the attorney-general's department must have
representation and conditions of
surrender must be properly arranged. I asked the chiefs to name any
person desired to represent the Attorney-General, if necessary even
himself, and I would have him present, but lt was more convenient to
have one of the chief constables. We
had some delay over this discussion, I mentioned Mr. Fernie's name,
but the majority objected. I suggested Forsythe, but they said he
was a chechacko. Jos. W. Burr, they
said would do, as he was an old
timer, and always good to the chiefs.
We then proceeded to Mr. Burr's
office. Mr. Burr and _ were the
only two white men present. The
chiefs selected as interpreter Hya-
clnthe Jules, of Deadman's Creek. I
asked the chiefs what they had to
say. They said 'a lot of money has
been spent and the boys are now-
caught, and we are very sorry for
everything that happened.'
Not After Reward.
"After my talk they had decided
that they wanted to work for law
and order. They did ,not want the
reward of $3000, as that would be
selling the boys. They would give
them up to me freely, but no constable should come. Constable Burr
thanked the chiefs, and assured
them that it was not the wish of his
department that the chiefs should
pay any money for the defence of
the boys. The Attorney-General
would provide them with a lawyer to
defend them.
"I totd the chiefs that now they
had truly done their duty and that
their conduct in not asking for the
reward was most praiseworthy. I
informed them that when an officer
or a soldier of the king does something brave in the face of an enemy,
he receives a mark of honor, generally In the form of medal and
for the good work the chiefs had
done I would recommend that a
medal be struck for each deserving
chief, bearing the royal coat of arms
on lt and the name of the chief and
the purpose of the commumoratlon.
These they should wear on all public occasions, treat them sacredly and
when they died transmit them to
their descendants. I aovised them
to follow in the same path of virtue
they had just traveled. The following were selected to go to Bonaparte Reserve to get Moses Paul and
Paul Spinttlum: Mr, Cummilskey,
Joe Moses, Dick Bazil, Bob Shelqua,
Major Churchill and Jimmy Retasket. I arrived at the Bonaparte
Reserve at 2:30 p.m. on December
28, and waB welcomed by all the Indians. I asked Chief Bazil to take
me to his house and summon all the
chiefs. All assembled and I asked
them to give me a sign If they were
all Christians. I addressed them
thus: >
" 'Many thousands of years ago,
before God gave a Saviour to mankind, great chiefs lived upon the
earth. God communicated his
wishes to them in a more direct manner than he does today. Some people were bad In all ages and bad people lived on the earth and were ruled by chiefs. God was not pleased
with His people on one occosian and
he had one good chief called Moses,
after whom many of you chiefs art-
called, and God called Moses to a
mountain and gave him ten laws to
govern himself and the people. The
fifth of these was 'Thou Shalt not
Kill.' God gives us life and it is
only His right to take that away. No
man has that right and if any man
Interferes with God In that design the law of British Columbia
says he shall pay the penalty with
his own life. This does not bring
back the life taken away, hut is the
best thing our fathers have found in
their wisdom for preventing others
."rom committing murder. I do not
say -hat those Indians committed the
murder. I cannot say that, but they
must come and  take their trW  ln
TypeVf new armored motor being adopted by the British Army
court the same as I  would myself
and the court will decide.
" 'If they have killed any person
their lot Is better than the victims.
They have time to be sorry and try
to make friends with God, which
chance was not given to those who
were killed. Now chiefs, give up
the boys to me.'
Dramatic Scenes.
"The chiefs called Paul and Spintlum by name. I did not know them
by sight, but they had mingled in
the crowd and at the summons they
walked forth before me. I asked
them to shake my hand and not be
afraid. I told them they would go
with me to Kamloops with no
shackles or handcuffs on them. Then
I bade them say goodbye to their
"The two surrendered outlaws
went through the crowd bidding
their farewells and for a little their
Indian stoclsm failed them. They
returned to me with their heads
bowed and their eyes covered by
their hands.
Smoked Together.
"They went with me to the automobile which was waiting for us and
before entering It I warned the two
men against making any statement
that might be used ln evidence
against them. Three of the chiefs
accompanied us to Ashcroft from
Bonaparte, where I dropped them,
before taking the train to Kamloops
whither Constable Burr accompanied us from Ashcroft. At Ashcroft
I took the chiefs and the two boys
to the hotel and we smoked cigars
and chatted until the train came ln,
when Paul and Cplntlum carried my
grips aboard.
"At the Kamloops Jail, when we
arrived, Captain Viekers, the warden, was a surprised custodian as he
formally received the two outlaws
who had not even a handcuff on.
"Before they were Induced to
come into the reserve and surrender, the men had been hiding in the
hills, about fifteen miles south of
the C. P. R. In the Nicola Valley.
