Exciting Experience of Two
There was a bit ot a sensation on
McKenzie avenue about 1 a.m. on
Tuesday morning. Horace Manning
heard a burglar on the roof ol his
building, and on locating his man
gave the alarm. G. D. Beattie arrived
on the spot with the intention of
making the burglar surrender or dropping him. Mr, Manning mounted
the root to see if the man waB still
there when Mr. Beattie, mistaking
him (or thc burglar, challenged him
to surrender. Receiving no roply he
filed a shot, and repeated the challenge.
Another shot Iol lowed and Mr, Manning, hearing the whir,-/, ol the bullets
in dangerous proximity, called out to
Mr. Beattie to step shooting. Tht
gentlemen who participated iu the
performance were the butt ol thoir
Irinnde' jokes yesterday.

Large Ore-Body Reported on
Columbia River.
Last lall, while N, McEachern was
examining timber on the western bank
of the Columbia River, he came across
a mineral showing which he sampled,
and as tho assays showed good values
he located it. It is stated J. I, Wood-
row has arranged a deal on it with P.
Burns subject to examination by his
mining engineer, Mr. Sharpe. The
ore-body is said to be a mile and a
half in length, has a vertical height ol
1500 It. and is 300 feet in width. The
location is opposite Green Slide, about
14 miles south ol Revelstoke.

New Westminster, May 12.—A
highly sensational story is being circulated on the streets that three men
who recently held-up the C.P R, train
at Ducks, are now in hiding in the
vioinity of New Westminster.
Several fishermen report having
seen strangers in a canoe last night
about nine o'clcck, and from the manner in which they evaded coming in
contact with any ol the other boats
tin; suspicions of the local fishermen
were aroused, nnd one ol them William Hrasch, made an atten pt to approach the eiinoe, hut the men go'
away in the gathering darkness liel'ore
he could come near enough to have n
good look at them.
Thc theory put forward by the fish
ermen iB that the bandits after bold
ing up the train and ransaeking thi'
mail cr, proceeded towards the soutli
for a distance, merely as a blind to
put the police off the track, nnd they
claim that although dillicult, it would
not be impossible to travel over the
river hy canoe as lar as here', and naturally the chances would be greatly
in the robbers' favor, as travelling
over the water would leave no truces
whatever, and bloodhoundB would be

111,000, the money being paid over up
the BJg Bend road. Several Revelstoke people, who met the man at that
time, declare the description tallies
with that of the leader of the gang as
given by the mail and train men.
The blood-hounds were started out
on Sunday morning from Ducks,
The Vernon police feel certain that
James Christie, whom they arrested
on Saturday, is one of the bandits, and
that James Moir and W. Wilson,
whom they also arrested are confederates.
On Saturday the Indians and the
Nelsoh blood-hounds tracked the* robbers to within a short distance of the
cabin of Paul Stevens, near Fish Lake,
and Stevens was arrested. Bloodhounds Irom Spokane arrived and
were sent out on the trail.
On Sunday afternoon Constable
Fernie, of Kamloops, who accompanied
the Indian trackers and blood-hounds
who kept so hot on the trail of the
lleeing bandits, noticed the camp ol
the bandits and immediately gave the
alarm to the squad of Northwest
Mounted Police, who were in tbe
vicinity. The police surrounded the
camp in double-quick time and called
on the bandits to hold up their bands.
Instead ol obeying that order tlie
robbers picked up their guns and commenced shooting.
The Mounted Police replied and the
firing became so hot the robbers surrendered and were captured, It is
stated one of the robbers, who is supposed to be Bill Miner, the leader ol
the gang, was wounded in the leg.
The bandits are being brought to
Kamloops where the preliminary investigation will be held.
Supt, Kilpatrick, who has taken
such an active part in arranging the
search for the bandits, and has been
on the ground ever since the occurrence, will remain over at Kamloops
till thc preliminary investigation.
Great credit is due to the Superintendent's olliee at Revelitoke lor the
puntuoal steps taken to capture the
robbers, as Irom thi-* olliee tbe arrau ;e-
inents were made to put Indian trackers and cow-boys on the trail ol llie
bandits before a move was made Irom

They have been hampered by the
rainy weather.
Ten more Mounted Police reached
Kamloops Sunday from Calgary, and
went, out to join the first force nt
Douglas Lake. Another force of
Mounted Police went down Okanagan
Laka into the lower country.
Kamloops, May 16—When Const,
Fernie came across the men he spoke
tn them but realized it was not a one
man's job and went for assistance.
Mounted police were in the vicinity,
and notified Sergeant Wilson who with
his men started off directed by Fernie.
The men meanwhile hnd camped in
the brush and no sign of them could
be seen. Fernie made for Douglas
Lake ranch to send word to Qtiilclieiui
to bring the blood hounds, In bis
absence the mounted police, seven in
number under Wilson, made search
and suddenly came upon three men
finishing lunch. They rode up to
them and Wilson asked them what
tbey were doing. The oldest man
said they were projpecting. Wilson
asked where and was answered "over
there," pointing south, Wilson then
Baid "I guess you'ro the men we want
for the hold-up," and at once covered
him with his revolver. One of the
troopers covered another man and the
third man rolled into a near-by ditch
crying, "Well, it's all up boys," and
commenced tiring on the police, who
returned thc fire. Shorty, us this man
was called as a nickname, cried out "to
quit" alter ten or a dozen shots had
been fired. He bad evidently emptied
hie revolver and had to give in. "II,"
he said, "I had had my automatic revolver there would have been a hot
time around here, you bet."
It was found that Shorty had been
shot in the leg and he- said, "It is a
damned pity you didn't put it through
my head."
Their names are George Edwards,
William Dunn, called Shorty, and
l.ouis Colquhoun.
Edwards is said to be'the celebrated
Bill Miner who has been connected
with several hold-ups in the west.
Shorty Dunn is the only one that
talks. Since admission to the jail he
snid he didn't expect Constable Fernie
to get help so quickly and they were
taken by Burprise by the Mounted
Police Mail Clerk McQuarrie has
positively identified Edwards who has
a latoo mark on his wrist and the
goggles he wore and the catarrh remedy he took from the mail car was
found on him. The peculiar nail
arrangement on the heel of the boot
corresponds exactly with the tracks at
the hold-up scene The preliminary
hearing will take placo to-day or in
tbe morning. All further se'arch has
been called off by Supt, Husscy.

GitANii Forks, May IL—Last evening Mrs, Simard and Mrs. Galloupy,
wives of employees of tbo smeltor,
while returning home from the oity,

is described as of medium height and

Winnipeg, May Hi.—In an Interview
yesterday James J. Hill said: "Our
line, the Great Northern Rail..ay, will
be built Irom the Pacific ocean to
Winnipeg as soon aB both the Canadian transcontinental lines, and as soon
as the Canadian Northern Railway
and Grand Trunk Pacific are ready
to compete for our freight.
"From determination expressed and
work already in progress on the Grand
Trunk Pacific, you can estimate how
long that will lie, We will be in a
position to forward our freight over
the first trains run eastward by the
Grand Trunk Pacilic. The greatness
of country has been proved, Its fertility is unquestioned and obtaining
of reasonable transportation facilities
to markets of tlie world is an assurance of prosperity, wealth and great
population to Western Canada."

TiBER, Alta., May 10.—George
Shorthouse, a miner, was instantly

of British Columbia and Alberta. Tlie
lirst conference was held in Edmonton
in Muy IH04 immediately following
the meeting of Synod, the second was
held in Victoria last year, and the
third was held last week iu Vancouver.
These conferences have all been successful nnd are not only Interesting
hut exceedingly helpful to all the
earnest, thoughtful ministers of .uur
A special feature of these conferences bus been the presence of sonic
distinguished leader ol the Church to
deliver a course of lectures, Tlie lirst
conlerence had Rev. Prof, Kilpatrick.

Knox College. Prof. Kennedy is lately from Callenilar, Si-utliind,.awl is
one of tlie new Professors in Knux
College. His course ol lectures on the

of Jesus" was truly inspiring aud
greatly appreciated byull. One would
like tu give a summary uf his lectures
but that would take both time aud
space. We can merely say the Canadian Presbyterian Church hascauBe
fur real gratitude that men uf such
type ub Prof. Kennedy and mauy
others are guiding the minds and
hearts of the young men who are today preparing themselves lor the
Christian ministry; and to listen to
such men dealing with the problems
and treasures uf the Bible i6 to deepen
our reverence and quicken our love
f,,r the truths of religion, whioh are
newer today than ever before.
Another feature of these conferences
is the reading and discussing oi papers
on special themes prepared by the
members, of Synod. This year the
papers were as follows: "The Peasant
Prophet," by Rev. .1. H. Miller, Field;
"The Worshipful Church," by Rev. J,
A. Logan, Ebume; "The Power ol
Paganism Today," by Rev. Dr. Herd-

The (Iraiitl Porks Gazette says:—"It
is intimated from Ottawa that Mr.
Eminerson will bring down n bill
placing telegraph, telcphsno and express companies under tho control ol
the railway coininission. Tlie country
will regard such a measure with satisfaction. Iu spite of nny criticism
which may be levelled against it the
railway commission lias not only done
good work, but the mere existence ol
a body with such lull powers makes
for lair play in matters where otherwise the great carrying corporations
would take a too selfish view oi things
in dispute between themselves and
the public."
The Montreal Star say
Mr. Oliver's proposal u

shall be under tbe care and control of
tlie Federal authorities, is a measure
whioh will command the support of
the country us easily us it secured the
sympathetic consideration ,-i both
sides ol the House Now is tlie time
to provide lor the protection of the
forests ol the West. With seltlers
pouring in there at tlie present rate,
and with the dangers of bush flreta
always increasing, the nation cannot
too soon set a guard over this vital
necessity of western prosperity."
The fact that last week no less than
three hold-ups occurred in British
Columbia at the points of guns, calls
attention to the urgent necessity for
increasing thc stringency of the criminal law. The practice ol carrying firearms in the United States iB responsible
for this condition of things and it is up
to the Canadian Government to take a
meane of check-mating it. We suggested last issue that the criminal law-
should be amended to make holdups by firearms a capital offence.
There is little difference between presenting a gun at a man's h ad. telling
him to deliver or he will lie shot, and
the actual shooting. M,-st ol the desperadoes who go in lor this kind ol
tiling would just as soon shoot to kill
as not, and their offence should be
dealt with accordingly. Now that
crimes of this sort are becoming so
common they demand urgent attention, and the best means to prevent
them would be by equipping the police
stations at central points with trained
men assisted by trained blood-hounds
ready to hunt down these dosperadoes
at a moment's notice, and by making
the offence one liable to the extreme
penalty ol the law—capital pun|ph-
ment. Though revolting as a means
ol expiating crime, deeperate offences
require desperate remedies, and tlie
idea ol having to end his life by dangling from the end ol a rope hi- I
greater terror to many evil doers th in
imprisonment for life.
The Minister of Justice is not devoting the attention to these Crimea and
the means ol preventing them that
conditions are now demanding. In
conjunction with the amendment * TU* MnnAl/ Q^vina
the federal criminal law the provincial j lilt JTlUllkJ 0(4Tlll£
police system requires re-organisation
and the Dominion Government should
supplement it by provision for the
Northwest Mounted Police system being
extended to thi-s province to co-operate with the provincial polio- and give
them the leiient ol trained assistance
in hounding down and detecting
crime. The position is too soriout. to
be dallied with, and crimes ol this
nature demand that no effort or expense shall he spared on the part of
the powers that lie to ensure the best
of law and order, and that Britisli
Columbia shall no longer be the holdup ground for thc criminal cIhsbcs of
tbe United Mates.
Speaking of his visit to llritisli
Columbia, Mr, Macklin, editor ol the
Manitoba Free Press,says: "111 a low
years Winnipeg capiln'ists will be
looking lor investments, and it is to
Britisli Columbia they will turn their
attention, The people of Winnipeg
will invest in Britisli Columbia mine
readily than will the people ot tho
cast. They huvo made their money
in the west and have faith In it, while
thoso in thc east arc still doubtful of
the possibilities here."
We urge on the business mon of the
city to grant tlie weekly hall-holiday
during the summer months, It iniikcB
no difference to the volume of business
done, and allows an opportunity lor
sport and recreation during the sum-
inor months. Several neighboring
tow s have already entered into this

for it the conceBsion could likewise be
arranged in Revelstoke.

Where Settlers are Crowding In
It is wonderful the way In which
settlors are crowding into tlio valley
ol the North Thomson, extending
(rom KamloopB (or 150 miles. The
river is navigable for over 100 miles,
but ns yet there is no steamship service on it. For the first hundred
miles the valley is a wide one, with
open lands or light timber which can
be easily cleared. The soil is ol tlie
best. For the first 2,1 miles north ol
Kamloops the valley on the cast side
ol the river is dry, there lieing lew
aide streams, and those which exist
being too small to be of much value
for irrigation. But finer grazing and
agricultural lands cannot be found.
The lands on the west side of the
river are better off for water as the
English company whioh has acquired
the land on the west bank ol the rivor
(or 17 miles north ol Kamloops has
put in an effective irrigation system
from Jamieson Greek, and the lands
have been subdivided inlo fruit farniB
and are selling at }Vi to $100 an acre.
There is an active demand for these
lands,'which grow excellent Iruit and
there' will soon be a thriving and
beautiful settlement on the north side
ol the river flats north of Kamloops.
Messrs. Strutt and Nash are acting as
agents for the Company owning these
Just above Jamieson Creek Mr.
Manson, formerly of Revelsloke, and
who came into the country with Chief
Bain, owns one of the finest ranches
in Britiih Columbia—a beautifully
situated spot, rich soil, large area of
level land, bjcked by bunch-grass hills
capable of raising large herds ot cattle,
the whole well irrigated from Jamieson Creek.
At Edwards Creek, fifteen miles
north of Kamloops, a road heads towards Adams Lake and enters a country being thickly settled lor thirty
miles. There is an accommodation
house here.
At Lewis Creek there is an excellent
accommodation house, ranch, and
sawmill operated by water power.
From this point the main road runs
into the Lewis Creek settlements and
here downs ol settlers are taking up
A good wagon road runs along the
Thomson (or 55 miles north of Kamloops and it then turns off towards
Dun Lake, a beautiful sheet ol water
locked in a fertile valley. This road
is being extended this season up the
Thomson River as far as the Clearwater, about 100 miles north of Kamloops, aud will shorten the present
round-about trail by ten miles.
As usual the
cover the pick ol the country, but in
the Thornton Valley the traveller sees
the finest Indiana to be (ound in British Columbia. They are a very decent lot, ol line physique, and very
industrious. Tbey work their reserves
to advantage and the amount of
ploughing, fencing, nnd stock-raising
which they do is remarkable.
Fifty-live miles out of Kamloops is
a ranch owned by George Fennell, an
old-time Kootenay prospector, who
has taken np 900 acres ol lands and is
doing wonders. He only took up the
land 18 months ago and has a large
area oleared and under cultivation
has planted out an orchard, brought
in an irrigation supply over a ditch
(our miles long, and cleaned up |3000
last season buying turs. This is a
wonderlul record and signifies the
■tamp ol men who make a country.
grows to the tops of thc highest bills.
The country falls away to the north,
and great depressions are seen in
which lakes abound surrounded by
large acres of rich meadow and sloping land. Right to the summit of one
of these hills was seen finer feed for
■took than around Kamloops, At
Allingham's ranch, over 100 miles up
the Thompson, everything can be
grown that can be raised around Kamloops, and Mr. Allingham's experiences
are a revelation ai to the marvellous
fertility of the soil and geniality of
climate. A prettier country no man
could wish to see.
It is into this country that settlers
are crowding, hewing out new homes,
tilling new lands, raising llocka and
And what these pioneers undergo?
Wc saw one party driving some cows
and packing the calves on horses, An
English (amity who went in thero had
their piano packed in over the bridle-
trail, so far tbo only means ol trans
portation into that lection, Such arc
the hardships of pioneering in the
back-woods of British Columbia, but
these hardships are cheerfully endure',

Shocking Condition of the City.
II. S. Turner, a San Francisco
printer, writing to Editor Wilcox, ol
the Phoenix Pioneer, says: " We have
nn lights other than candles, no power for machinery, only one street car
line in operation, and we still have lo
do our cooking in thc streets, as there
is not a whole chimney in the traction
ol the city lelt, nor hardly a building
not out of plumb—tbey aro all zigzag.
The lire in places is slill burning, and
the stench from cooked human corpses
is sickening. I was just informed hy
a prominent undertaker that the estimated loss of life was over ten
thousand. Some of tbe bodies are
buried, some are incinerated and some
are weighted and thrown into the bay.
I want to get away from these heartrending, harrowing surroundings."
