troubles that  South  Vancouver    has
been afflicted with during the pasl

MACKENZIE & MANN are the largest holders in British Columbia of coal lands, timber limits and agricultural lands.
SOME IDF.A OF the cause of local money stringency may be
drawn from the fact that in 1912 companies with a total capitalization of $1,1 77,509,4^5 were promoted in British Columbia with the
object in view of grabbing and exploiting our natural resources.
Millions ot dollars of water in the treasury of these companies was
peddled to unsuspecting Englishmen.
* * *
AMONG THE LARGEST holders of Crown lands bVca away
from the Government by the power-of-attorney game are Messrs.
Bowser, Reid & Wallbridge, Messrs. Welch & Stewart, of railroad
fame. The Dominion Trust Company were also in for great slices
of agricultural lands.
THE MINISTERIAL UNION believe that a commission sho"uTd
be appointed by the Imperial Government to investigate the appal-
ing condition of affairs and to bring the members of the guilty government and the camp-followers to justice. T\V ( i

Dunn, sentenced to life imprisonment
for his share in Hill Miner's celebrated train robberies, ia abutil lei lie liberated from ilie penitentiary, This
rumor, in circulation for some litlle
nine, has been definitely confirmed
by the CHINOOK. Circumstances
discovered since (lie conviction, as
well as lhe Warden's reporl em his
exemplary conducl as a prisoner, are
1he causes of lhe  unusual  step,
The commutation alter nine years'
T.,'nal servitude is all the more remarkable in thai ii i.s a second commutation, Jusl a few years aller his
conviction, Dunn's term was reduced
to fifteen years, which with all allowances for good conduct, would nol release him until 1919.
Only once before in Canadian criminal annals has a prisoner received a
second ^rani nf executive clemency,
and singularly that previous encasie,n
e ccurrcd at N'ew Westminster also.
The public kimws of ihat occasion,
and so far as any official announcement is concerned, pee'pie would never have heard of Shorty  Dunn's ease.
In the ease eif notorious criminals
ilie Department eef Justice endeavors
to permit lhe man to slide gradually
back into civil life unheralded, Only
so can a man escape lhe advances oi
Former associates win. we mid endeavor to lure him back inin the paths
where his former cleverness made him
si) successful. The dale of Shorty
Dunn's release i.s met yet fixt-.l an.l
���will nol be known. If known, it
weiuld mil be maele public in this paper, for it would only ereale difficulties in Dunn's endeavor t.. gel back
to an  honest  career.
Preparations are' being made For
Dunn to go north as a trapper, The
government, whieh assumes a perpetual guardianship over paroled prisoners, is taking precautions i" Bee
that he is surrounded by influences
whieh iv ill remove him from the danger of being tempted back i" a life
uf crime. Facts learned since Dunn's
incarceration tend lei show that Dunn

Where the "Nancy" lay Worsley
decided to locale on the landward side
of the river. Here in the heat of the

always glad to have him don

One day an Indian messenger came
lie  them   with   the  information    ihat
American ships were blockading Mackinac.     Lieutenant    Worsley    consequently  anticipated  an  immediate attack, and he was not long kept waiting,   (or   one   h"l   day   three   vessels���
the   Niagara,   eighteen   guns,   and   th
Scorpion, and Tigress, each mounting
three   guns ��� were   observed
healing   iheir   way   to   the   in
the river.
Worsley had mounted "il a mile
platform beside the blockhouse two
twenty-four pounders and one six-
pound carronades and determined te
give haul.'. His twenty-three navy
veterans were anxious and ready for
lhe tray, not considering that with a
combined force of five hundred men
on these three ships tliey stood little
chance of holding out a  single hour.
Thc American boats were drawing
too much water to enter the river."
But during the night and llle next
morning they came up the bay to opposite the blockhouse and the "Nancy," just across the peninsula. Here
tliey landed a howitzer and one liuii-
elrcd men. ��� The engagement started
about len o'clock, anil the few pine
irees on the' peninsula thai afforded
seiitie shelter to the liltlr garr-iMa

Stripped .'.' ihe waist, the hardy old
veterans worked their three guns with
all the power they could command.
The perspiration rolled off them,
and in the rising elusi ami sand the)
alnieisi  choked.
Little Mac had heen detailed Iiv
Lieutenant Worsley to remain by the
well, which the soldiers had made in
the sand al lhe foot of a high bank,

never lil to elrink. had been allowed
