William Johnson Shot While Asleep
in His Cabin.
Among the arrivals in town Thursday on the up trip of the Columbia
was James Burke, who had boarded
the steamer at Fire Valley, having
tramped all the way from Kamloops.
Burke told a strange story to the effect that, just as he came to the shore
of the Lower Arrow lake, he met with
a prospector, who informed him that
he was on his way to Fire Valley to
notify the authorities of the fact that
the body of W. Johnson, a. trapper
well-known in these" parts, had been
discovered by him and his two companions in a cabin near Lake Whart-
shan—a small sheet of water, about
five miles in from the Columbia river
and this side of Fire Valley.. This
story was received rather dubiously
by the authorities here, but. Sunday's
mail brought conclusive proof of the
truth of the-tale to Provincial Officer
Fauquier, who left Tuesday morning
to investigate • the matter. A promf-
nent settler in Fire Valley seilt the
following communication to The
KLedge, corroborating in each detail

the story told by Burke:
Charles Wooley, John
Albert Anderson, while
around Lake Whartshan, found the
murdered body of William Johnson,
a- trapper, who wen* iu thereHtist fall,,
lying' in a bunk in a small cabin
The .position of the body was quite
natural, lying on the right' side, the
knees slightly drawn up, as though
deceased had been sleeping when the
deed was committed." . At the back
of the skull was a bullet hole and of
average rifle calibre. The blankets
about the head were saturated with
blood, but as the body was badly decomposed and the blood badly clotted
no further examination was made, for
fear of destroying any evidence. The
murderer had undoubtedly shot his
victim as he slept, as there was no
sign of a struggle.
A bunch of iurs, comprising about
a score of marten skins, together with
some of Johnson's personal effects,
were hanging from the walls and

change. Deceased's rifle was lying
on the floor, with the muzzle pointing
away from the bed. But few provisions' were left, only a small quantity
of floor and a pound or two of bacon.
From the general appearance of the
place and body, the murder must
have been committed late last fall. I
will state here that Cultus Jim, and a
number of other Colville Si was lies,
were encamped, late in the fall, at
the mouth of Whartshan creek, and
they hunted and ..'trapped-■through
that country. It is an old Indian
hunting-ground, and it is generally
believed the Si washes mentioned objected to Johnson's presence there, and
shot him to get rid of him. -
Though no evidence has yet been
taken, the suspicion rests strongly on
the Indians. They- have no right
here, and why the powers that be
should permit them to go roaming
through the country at will is ''without j
reason.    Will you ventilate this mat
ter and have it stopped? William
Johnson started, in to prospect this
country and lay a line of traps about
the 1st of September, and a partner
went with him, but" whose name I
have forgotten. He, too, is missing,
and is also supposed'' to have been
killed.    The latter was rather tall,

TUESDAY'S MEETING.
A Heated   and Amusing Entertainment Furnished.
Lack of space forbids anything more
than a brief account of Tuesday
evening's political meeting in the
schoolhouse, whereat the rival candidates, J. M. Kellie,   M.P.P., and W.
M. Brown, enunciated their policies
and that of their respective parties.
D. A. McDougald acted as chairman
in his usual satisfactory maimer. Mr.
Kellie was called on "first, with the
privilege of replying to Mr. Brown.
He vigorously advocated his claims
for .re-election and expounded Unon
the general progressive policy of the
Government. Mr. Brown, ' on the
other hand, set forth the platform of
the Opposition, backing it up with an
array of personalities Mr. Kellic's
reply, emphatically deny ing the all-e-'
gat ions imputed,, and ' the pointed
questioning of Mr. Wilson, from the
audience, afforded much amusement
to the large company present, particularly so to the ladies. After a vote
of thanks to the chairman, the meeting   dispersed-   with    three   hearty
gold in paying quantities on Cariboo
creek.    On the contrary, the interest
has become intensified, reaching., fever heat on Friday afternoon, and
Saturday, when upwards of 20 men
left fur the new camp. Among them
were J. Darraugh, li. Madden, B. C.
.Rodd, Ii. Madden. T. Abriel and"
other' well-known local lights. Of
these, Messrs. Rodd, - Abriel and
Darraugh returned on Monday evening, not having taken sufficient pro- .
visions to warrant a longer stay. At
the same time they took advantage'
of the opportunity to go to New Denver to record their" claims. They
unite in asserting that the field is one
of the richest ever struck in this part
of the province, and to demonstrate
it they exhibited the results of washings ma.de while there, one pan of
gravel netting more than 50 cents, the
gold being clearly shown in quite
large flakes. This panning was obtained from black sand on a bench
over 50 feet from the creek proper.-
They assert that once bed rock is

realized. ' -Float   carrying   a'old   is

In Testimony Whekeop, We have caused these
Our Letters to be made Patent and the Great
Seal of the said Province to be hereunto affixed: Witness, the Honourable Edoak Dewdney, Lieutenant-Governor of Our said Prov-
iuce of British Columbia, in Our City of Victoria, in Our said Province, this seventh day of
June, in the year of Our Lord one thousand
eight hundred and ninety-four, and in the
fifty-seventh year of Our Reign.
By Command,
A. CAMPBELL REDDIE,
Deputy Provincial Secretary.
For Member of the Legislative Assembly for the South Riding: ot
the West Kootenay District:
Platform Adopted in Convention.
TS^HEREAS the men who upbuilt the Dominion
V?    of .Canada, were not of one nativity, and if- a
Third. The interests of the province were not
safeguarded in the agreement between the Govern •
ment and the Nakusp and Slocan Railway Company, and the policy of the Government in pledging the credit of the province, in order that speculative companies may profit thereby, is to be condemned.
Fourth. After making provision for the payment ef the running expenses of the Government,
expenditures should be confined solely to the building and betterment of wagon roads and other
works that are for the free use and benefit of the
public- at large, leaving to private enterprise the
construction and operation of railways and other
undertakings for the use of winch the public are
required to pay.   „
Fifth. The speedy adjustment ofthe differences
between the province and the Dominion, to the end
that the land in the railway belt along the Canadian Pacific Railway be thrown open to settlement
under the land laAvs of the province; the amendment of the Land Act so that it will he ail amicable contract between.the province and the settler,
eliminating all discretionary powers of tlie Chief
Commissioner of Lauds and'Works; also amending
it so as to permit the outright purchase ef small
tracts in all unsurveyed mountainous districts.
Sixth. The timber lands of the province should
be held in trust for tiie future use of its people, and
not handed over under long leases, to speculative
mill owners as a saleable asset.
Seventh. The .development of the mining industry should not be hampered by legislation that
makes the procurement or titles to surface rights
impossible; that levies unequal taxation on working
miners; and that makes it difficult to compel delinquent co-owners to pay their share of the assessment work; therefore we favor the rej)eat of sections S and 45a of the Mineral Act and a revision of
the sections relating to mining _)artnerships.
Eighth. The passage of an act whereby water
rights for any specific purpose may be obtained as
readily as such rights are now obtained for mining
purposes under the provision of the Mineral Act.
Ninth. The e^bsblishmeut ef a land registry for
We.-t Kootenay district.
Tenth. The holding in Kootenay district of
terms of the county court at short intervals; extending the poAver to issue capias to registrars of
county courts in districts where there are no resident judges; and the passage of an act that will allow the collection of small debts in courts composed
of justices of the peace.
Eleventh. The extortion to which laborers on
railway construction and other works fire compelled to submit, through the issuance of timecheeks
is alike discreditable to the men who profit bv such
practices and to the Government tliat makes no ef-
iort to render such practices impossible. The issuance of non-negotiable time checks should be made
a punishable offence, and the issuance of negotiable time checks should only be allowable under a
law that would safeguard the rights of the party to
whom they arc issued.
Twelfth. Contractors and sub-eontracturs on
railways should have'a means of-'getting'speedy
redress from unjust classification and unfair measurement of work by the appointment of an official
arbitrator who shall be a practical engineer.
Thirteenth.   The Government- is to be cbndein:
healthy patriotic sentiment is to: prevail, and only f ed for the passage.of a redistribution act that is not
by the growth of such a sentiment can Canada S uniform in it* provisions, and by which re.;resen-
take a place among the English-speaking nations.
the responsibilities of government-'-must- be entrusted to men of known capacity, and not to men
who, by accident of birth, imagine themselves
rulers by Divine right.   Therefore be it resolved—
First.   That we hold .as .reprehensible, the practice of appointing non-residents to official positions ;
in interior districts,and we maintain that all office-'
w
of
iatio.n-  is  neither 'based  on    popiiiaticii,
strength nor contributed revenue.

THURSDAY,  JUNE 23,  1894
Nominations for the impending
- elections were held in the coast constituencies on Saturday, and the re-
. suit proved eminently satisfactory to
the Government. Four supporters of
the progressive administration were
elected by acclamation,, viz., Hon.
Theo. Davie, Premier, and Colonel
Mutter, for Cowichan-Alberni; and
Hon. D. W. Hig'gins, Speaker, and
Hon'. C. E. Pooley, another member
of the Cabinet, for Esquimalt. It
looks as if W. M. Brown and his pals
were destined to disastrous defeat at
the polls.
The joint political  meeting-in the
schoolhouse resulted in a surprise in
more respects than one.    Firstly, because ofthe citizens, of Nakusp were
given a true insight into the very
questionable tactics Mr. Brown is resorting- to to carry the election;' secondly, because oi' the vastly superior
abiluy displayed by Mr. Kellie in his
presentation   of   the   Government's
poljcy, and the tactical shrewdness j
exemplified in  his handling of his
opponent; and thirdly, because of the
undoubted feeling- manifested by the
audience in favor of Hon. Mr. Davie.
Mr.   Brown,   rather   than expatiate
upon the policy of the Opposition, descended to personalities—a contemptible proceeding' at any and all times.
"His insinuations that Mr. Kellie had
immediately profited by the expenditures on trails in this district and his
assertions   that public  monies  had
been recklessly frittered away, met
with a flat, contradiction and a challenge to proof.    This Mr. Brown did
not .vouchsafe,., nor could he; but, notwithstanding these denials from his
opponent,   the Opposition   candidate
harped away thereon in a truly painful manner.    Mr. Kellie dealt .with'
the questions of the day in a manner
that elicited, frequent bursts of applause from his hearers, and held up
his rival hi an uneviable light, both
for his decidedly negative occupation
of a seat in  the Legislature under
Hon. Mr.Beaven's administration and
the trivial gossip  he is reiterating- to
sway public opinion.    The meeting
terminated  with rousing  cheers for
Hon a Mr    Davie's Government—an
emphatic demonstration of Mr.Kellie's
popularity, and a positive indication
\TOTICE is hereby given that I will not be re-
li sponsible for any debts contracted in my
name on, or since, the first day of June, 1891, by

JILOT BAY SMELTER.
It Will Soon be Ready for the Treatment of Ores.
Dr. Hendryx, one of the original
promoters of the Pilot Bay smelter,
in an interview with a Spokane Tribune re] orter, said:
"Work was discontinued on the
Pilot Bay smelter on account of the
depression in all lines of trade and
especially the paralyzed condition, of
mmill's' and money circles. If you
could give me some reliable news
upon these matters I would then be
able to definitely tell when the smelter would start-, but as it is I cannot
say positively when -work will be resumed upon the smelter or just when
it will be operated."
"How near is the smelter finished?"
"About four months' work would
put it in order for active operation."
•' "From what section of the country
do you expect to derive your ore supply to keep the plant in operation
.when completed?"
"The Kootenay district will furnish a larg* portion of the ore supply.
We apprehend no trouble in being
able to get all the ores necessary to
keep the plant in operation."
"Have you heard the rumor that
the Spokane smelter would soon be
operated by a big oil company?"
"No, I have just returned from
the east and am not posted as to the
latest developments."
"You heard, nothing of the matter
in the east?"

"Do you think the rumored starting ofthe smelter has any foundation

"I do not care to answer that question. In frhe first place it is none of
my business and I find people get
along better by minding their own
affairs. No, 1 don't wish to be quoted in that matter." -
"Do you think the'smelter if started here would be able to get plenty
of the right kind of ores to keep, ft
running?"
"I don't wish to be quoted oh that
subject cither. I will say in a general way, though, that* the ores of
the Kootenay district will be treated
sooner or later at Pilot Bay, whether
I do it or some one else. It is only a
question of a little time."  -
