TWO DOOM BAST OF EDISON THEATRE
ND CLUE TO MURDER
Experts Baffled in Their Analysis
of tlie Black Hand Stain
The expert analysts nnil chemists
attached to the Department ol Inland Revenue at Ottawa and to McGill Univi'isity, have transmitted to
the Attorney-General's department
their report ol examinations ol tlje
little sort mn ol cuticle tnkrn from
the fnr.* nt unfortunate Frank Julian
ol Revelstoke, and showing the
brand presumed to have been made
by the emissaries of the Black Hand
responsible for bis assassination two
months or more ago. These experts are however as miirli in the
(lurk as were the chemists of British
('olumbia ns to the nature ot the
arkis employed in the significant
branding, their report being distinctly of a negative character and
affording no assistance to the police
authorities In their endeavors to
solve tbe mystery of the Julian murder The results—if any results have
been Becured—of the Eastern investigations are summarized in a report
transmitted through the Deputy Minister of Inland Revenue by Chief
Analyst A. McGill, which is now in
the possession of Superintendent
Husscy.
THE  REPORT
Tbis document  reads as follows:
Ottawa,   November  S,  1910.
Vi.  J. Gerald, Esq.,
Deputy Minister  of Inland Revenue
Dear Sir: I beg to refer to L.
73926 of F. 99551 dealing with a
piece of human skin, blackened presumably by an agent of the Black
Hand Society. It is desired to as
certain what material has been used
in blackening the skin. I regret to
say that the results of work (details
enclosed) nre chiefly negative, and
may be summed up  as follows:
1.—The coloring matter is not of
the nature of a dye.
2.—The black color is almost certainly due to tree carbon, produced
by charring the cuticle with a cor*
rosiye agent.
3.—Any one of a large number of
corrosive subtunces may have been
used. Oil of vitriol suggests itself;
but if this is the actual agent, exposure to weather and to moisture
have made certain identification impossible.
entered tbe palace und placed a
batch of document i on the King's
desk, remarking sign licantly that
they were merely routine and need
not be rend. King George made a
few remarks on his own account,
which contained a solemn rebuke for
the secretary's unbusinesslike methods.
Churchill, whoso worst enemy never
accused him of lack of confidence of
his own judgment, responded that
the King's business was to sign what
his ministers asked him to sign an.l
that it really makes no difference
whether he ever rend  anything.
The King is -aid tu have practically ordered the home secretary from
the  imlnrc.

THE MURDER RECALLED
The  murder ul Frank  Julian ts one
of the     most   complex    problems at
present  engaging   the  attention       of
the    Provincial   police.     Tbe  victim,
who in past times had been of material  assistance  to  both     I'rovincinl
and Dominion  authorities      in      the
solution of crime-     arising   through
the  activities   ot   the   Italian     Mafia
in  this province,   had long anticipated that he would  meet his death   at
the hands of the secret enemies      nf
ronto, and since that date he has
never been seen or heard of. Foul
play is feared. His grips went down
on the steamer Kootenay on that
date, but it cannot be ascertained
whether he himself travelled on the
same steamer or not.
Mr. Wright has the Canadian Pacilic Railway detectives and the local
police looking into th? matter, but
to date no trace has been found.

"While thc milling industry ol
British Columbia appears to be taking rm new life, and enlisting the investment c! new capital, there wan
.never a time in thc history of tlie

pt more on their guard against wild

these regrettable accompaniments ol
mining development is one ol the mir
eHt indications of roturnlng prosperity. There are lota of good, Bound,
legitimate investments in the mining
sections ol the province, but somehow there are always, and In every
country, unscrupulous promoters who
would rather ofler the public some
rotten proposition, probably because
there is more money in it, than devote their time to the notation of

FINANCIAL  MATTERS
tinder      the     bending  ol  Financial
Matters,   the      Winnipeg   Commercial
says:
" The London market is now lite-
less and congested. This is how a
rest-dent Canadian, prominent in the
linancinl world in London, tersely
described the present situation in
reply to a question as to what prospects there were for the dotation of
Canadian municipal and industrial
issues. The remark must not bc in
any sense taken as indicating a tailing oil in the remarkably increased
attention which is now given by the
linnncial world there to propositions
which emanate trom the Dominion.
Indeed, it may he said that this increased interest which has resulted
in Canada obtaining so much money
on so much more favorable terms in
recent years is in the main due to
thc conservative'action ot those institutions which sometimes take active measures to protect the mere
spectator even  against himself.
"The very success which has been
achieved hy the 'gilt-edged' type ol
Canadian securities has been a source
ol danger. People ate now kept alive
to the fact that if there are any
very remarkable 'bargains' going In
gold, iron ore, timber or industrials,
there are quite a lot, of people now
on the spot In Canada who nre able
to put such issues on a business toot
ing before going to London {or
capital.  "
DNJTJST CRITICISM.
"John  Bull" n weekly journal pub
ilished In London, England, in recent issue lias been running articles
beaded   "The  Canadian   Siberia"from
1 n travelling correspondent, who does
not specify nny portions of Canada
In his attacks upon tbis country, hut
.unites Canada as awhole, Here is a
sample:
"The winter lasts seven mciiths,
during which the thermometer touch
es fifty below zero and stays there,
ami the expenses of living are more
than double what they are In England. During the winter all work
ceases, and many poor fellows living
on the savings of the summer are
frozen to death, and there is no poor
In.uses for the down-and-outer, who
has not even the sympathy of the
Cf.nadlan, who dislikes the Englishman and tells him he n?ed not apply for situations vacant."
It goes on to say further that,
"homesteaders are dispossessed of
their land if they do not stay on it
all the year round, while if they do
stay on their farms during the winter, there is nothing to do but think
and go mad."
It is such reports that do infinite
barm to Canada and while it must
be admitted that the winters are
long nn.l sometimes exceedingly cold
yet they have their benefits in many
ways, whoever the correspondent to
"John Bull" may bc, he should not
tuke one or two cases and then mag
iii-'y them as being the condition ot
the whole of Cnnadn. A fair and
true criticism of this country by any
responsible authority cannot be
found fault with, but the knocker
nnd thc biassed, disgruntled grouch
should  hnve tin  place found  for him.
ELECTRICAL REVELSTOKE.

the city council  ol  Nelson  to    erect

help to advertise  Nelson as a     city
of  cheap  power,   anl   the  same   thing
could very well l>e accepted here and

Municipal Loyalty
No word appeals more strongly to
the average person than loyalty. We
all love to he spoken of as loyal to
family friends, country and our own
ideals, We should also include our
home city Kevelstoke.
There is no 'doubt of our sincerity
in this and we would feel very much
otfcnded were it questioned, hut is
■ this loyalty always of tlie right sort
is it intelligent and active or is it
sometimes a sentimental and pleasing fancy with which we delude ourselves.
The happiness of the people of a
city depends largely on the prosperity of the community as a whole and
this protpciity depends in part upon
the amount of money circulating
there. The more money the people
send away for things they can huy
from their own merchants, the poorer the community will heconie and,
conversely, the more they spend at
home, the more the place will thrive
Do those who patronize distant
mail order houses ever think of the
harm done? If all the good people in
Revelstoke, for instance should ignore the local merchants and for one
year buy their supplies in Toronto,
Ottawa or Montreal, there would be
"For Sale" signs on the city hall,
the public library, the schools and
the churches. The same principle applies to all communities.
■ Patronage ol home merchants is
the life of a c ty. These mail order
houses by offering attractive (?) premiums with indifferent goods, have
drawn from us large amounts of
money which, if spent at home,
would have helped to pay for schools
paving, lighting and general civic
improvements. Out side business
houses do not pay any part in our
city tales.
But "Business is Business" some
say. Yes, but business is more than
that, it is reciprocity, and it should
be appareat to everyone that business dealings with those who are
working for the same local interests
as ourselves will be far more productive of good, than trading with
people who are far away, who bay
nothing from us and whose only interest in our community is the amount of money they can get out of it
Do you recall when times have
been hard that these mail order lions
es ever eitended you credit to help
5011 over the hard places? Will
they? Not in a thousand years—it's
money down, or no goods. The local
merchants are the ones to whom we
must turn for assistances, but how
can we do so with good grace or
reason unless we support them in
prosperous times?
They are alert, intelligent and pro
gressive and, if given the opportunity, will sell better goods at the same
. or lower prices, than the mail order
hous?s can or will and deliver them
a* once—no express charges, no long
delays,  no disappointments.
Let us cease, thn, enriching a few
people in whom we have no sort of
interest, at the cost of lasting injury to our own community. Try
supporting 011 r own home bus:n:s
for a time.
Surely loyalty, in this instance,
means spend your money at home.
Christmas is a season when we
should be especially careful to -lock
to the interests of our home city,
when once a year at least there
should be a warm feeling of neighborly friendship between man and
man. We cannot impress upon our
readers too strongly the fact of build
Ing up home industry and we can
guarantee that Revelstoke stores can
compete with any house in Canada.
They are all looking ior a big Christ
mas trade and have stocked accordingly, therefore we urge our people
to give them all the support ani
patronage they cortainly deserve.
diagnosed a case, a druggist who
never made a mistake, a post official
who never put mail in the wrong
box, a woman who never forgot to
put in salt while cooking or to put
tea in the teapot before ' putting in
the water."
Revelstoke has her share of this,
and all we can say is bring on some
of your mistakeless paragons, who
lind it so easy to critize the newspapers, and we will give them the
chance of their lives to find out
whether they nre really human, If
where, in anything, we want to see
it, and will gladly pay the price.

Advices from Ottawa state that a

methods of organization for the work

tnate'ialized. A. S. Goodeve, of
Kootenay, is one of the western
whips.
The apple crop for the past season
was beyond question the heaviest on
record. Nearly all the orchards in
the district did exceedingly well and
the class of fruit grown was tlie best
ever produced on the Arrow lakes.
This was largely due to the greater
attention that is being paid hy ranchers to spraying.

Premier McBri.le has felt compelled
to decline the invitation to him by
Sir James Whitney, of Ontario, and
Sir Lomer Gouin, of Quebec, to at
te-iil a conference of vrovinclal prem
bi ; to be held at Ottawa on Decem-
ler 9. Mr. McBride has replied that
owing to the approach of the session
of the British Columbia legislature
whicli opens on January 12, he is
unable to get away at the present
time.
We may take it that the cold
weather has fairly set in now. The
Canadian winter with its short days
and cold spells is properly regarded
as the great compensating force of
these northern latitudes. It means
rest for the land, and social recreation for the work of the government
revival and physical rest an.l its enforced suspension is no small factor
in building tip the vigorous national
characteristics ol this Dominion.

Warrant for Conductor
Montreal, Nov. 29th.—Judge Lnnc-
tot, at the request ol the crown
prosecutor, has issued a bench warrant for the arrest ol K. Smith, e
former sleeping-car conductor in the
employ ol the Canadian Pacillc Railway company, who al the time ran
between Montreal anil Vancouver,
ami latterly between Montreal and
Toronto, says the Montreal Gazette.
Smith is accused ol tho thctt ot
sleeping-car lares.
The case caused a good deal of in.
torest In railway circles and it is
probable that, other than railway
pie will become interested, aa the
naiiii'S and addresses ol quite a number ol people with whom he has been
doing business are known and it is
likely that Iwifore the matter Is finally disposed of several ot the hunters for bargains in railway transportation will be dealt with.
"It is really too bad," said a high
official of the Canadian I'acilic on
Saturday, "that the travelling public should suggest such dishonesty to
conductors. If passengers would refrain from making conductors steal
from the company by offering them
facilities and indue.'ments to do so,
it would be better 'for them in every
way. Wc have the names ol a good
many men who have done this, in
Montreal and other places and they
includ? some pretty prominent men.
Morally they are guilty, il not more
so, than the conductors whom they
train to be thieves and the practice
ot trying to get this cheap transportation at the expense of the company
and the honesty of the conductors
can not be  too sharply repressed.
"In the present instance it has led
to the ruin of a young man and the
breaking up ol his home. Whilo we
are sorry for those who suffer by it,
the company must stop this business
of stealing fares and prosecution will
follow every instance that is discovered."
For Use on Cariboo Road
A gasoline motor engine of peculiar design and four freight cars are
now being set up at the C.P.R.
yards In Vancouver ready for shipment to Ashcroft, where tho train
will bo utilized in a freight service
trom Ashcroft north into the Cariboo district. The cars have a
capacity of four tons each. This novel train has lieen designed on workmanlike lines nnd it ia expected to
do valuable service toward solving
tho freight transportation problem.
whicli during tho last two years has
assumed serious proportions ln that
district and the country adjacent to
it, owing to the large traffic which
lias developed.
The Coronation
Lottdi n, Nov. 29.—The King's proclamation, fixing the date of his maj
csty's coronation, is issued ln a
supplement to the "London Gazette"
Tbe date chosen is June 22. The
proclamation further warns all loyal
subjects who have, by royal command, by ancient linage, or by
right of office, duties to perform In
connection with the ceremony, to at-
linl, except those whose duties concern the part ot the ceremony formerly held in Westminster hall, of the
procession. These arc dispensed
with.
Compliments B. C. fruit
Writing under tho dato of the 3rd
inst., lo Mr. W. E. Scott, the deput
inst, to Mr. W. K. Scott, the deputy
Minister of Agriculture, Dr. J.O. Orr
the secretary and malinger of the
Toronto exhibition, pays, especially
high compliment to Uritish Columbia fruit. He says in this juat received communication: "I beg to
advise you that your exhibit has
been awarded a gold medal. It was
one of tho finest fruit exhibits that
has ever been made on this continent; no other exhibit in our provincial governments' building attracted
such attention as did yourB. Tho
number of visitors from Kngland who
were especially directed to your exhibit were astonished that such fruit
could he produced in British Columbia. The attendance at tho exhibition this year was over 825,000, an
increase of some 80,000 over last
year. This increase was largely duo
to the lact that excursions on the
railways to our exhibition extended
Irom San Francisco to Boston."

Civic government by commission Is
being discussed in many parts of the
province, and its advantages cannot
lie gainsaid.
The sentiment that municipalities
governed by a mayor and council Is
not the best form of supervision is
making progress everywhere and the
substitution of a commission is advocated aB lar preferable to the existing method.
Krom the viewpoint of the business
man that which may have served in
the past has practically outlived its
usefulness and the difficulty exiieri-
enced in securing fully competent
and absolutely independent men to
attend to the onerous duties of the
otlicea ot mayor and alderman is becoming mare evident dally.
Takiag as a point of departure
material interests, which striped of
all verbiage and sophistry governs
practically everyone, we are forced
to acknowledge that tho inter-rela-
lionship between a man's duties to
the municipality and his own private
interests make it almost an Impossibility to dissociate thc two opposing
factors.
He may accept the civic office with
thebest ol intentionls (with which
by tho way Sir Walter Scott says
the nether regions are paved) to ful-
111 thc duties incumbent upon him
to the best of his ability and understanding, but before his term has
been completed very probably he
may be placed In a position where
bis private interests and his public
duties clash and he will be forced to
debate with lum* Hf as to the proper
course to pursue. Such a perplexing situation is obviated with a com
mission as then tbe governing body
lakes .'barge much ln the same manner as a manager of a large business
concern operates with an eye single
to tho welfare of the ratepayers, M
his position depends Bolely upon the
showing mado, hence he enn administer allairs without fear or favor.

In your preparations for Christmas do not
forget the fact that this Holiday time belongs preeminently to the Children. The wonderful holiday
time that cannot be separated from the brightness
of child song and laughter, and when everything
centres in the children why not have a Home Xmas
Tree and why not make it
properly attractive. For a
few dollars any person can
decorate a tree with the
many beautiful glittering ornaments and candles to be
had. This will add a rare
and radiant pleasure which
is the birthright of the children, and be worth ten times
the trifling cost.
