Preliminary Hearing of C. P.-
R. Hold-up Trio at Kamloops Before Magistrate
KAMLOOI'B, May 111.—The three
accused train robbers were committed
tor trial.
Kami.001'8, May IU.—The preliminary hearing nf the three prisoners,
Edwards, Dunn andOolqnhoun, begau
Thursday morning before Magistrate
Mayor Gordon, Attorney-General Ful
ton conducting the prosecution. Geo.
8, McCarter, of Revelstoke, looked
afler tbe inteiosls of tlie C. P. It.
A. D. Mnclntyie defended the accused.
Tbe, only witness examined up to
two o'clock was Sergeant Wilson of
tbe mounted police. Maclntyre attempted to secure an eight-day remand, probably with a view to holding
tlie case over until after the assizes,
which open here Monday next.
The examination of tlie witness
elicited no new facts of importance.
Defence evidently intends to dispute
the jurisdiction of the mounted police
to arrest. Counsel closely examined
Wilson as to instructions and elicited
tbe fact, that while tbey were sworn
in to come to B. C. to bunt for the
three men ns specials under the provincial police, they were not so sworn
in afler their arrival in the province.
Wilson also permitted Seavey, superintendent nf the Thicl Detective
Agency at Seattle, to put tbe prisoner in the sweat box in a private room, with just the three ol them
The prisoners Edwards andColqu-
liouii assert. Seavey represented himself as an attorney from Kamloops.
Wilson de-iied this, stating Seavey
told Colquhoun he was a detective.
The evidence showed that Wilson was
acting directly under the orders of
Commissioner Perry at the instigation
of Superintendent Marpole of the C.
The prisoners seem unconcerned,
Dunn laughing continually. He
laughed while being carried into the
court room, but during the proceedings was alert and took a lively interest, The others seem sell-possessed
and look quite icspectable now they
are cleaned up. Seavey was not in
court and is evidently keeping deliberately out of the way.
C. P. R. Detective Robt. Bullock,
interviewed at Vancouver said:—"I
have not the slightest doubt that the
old man in custody is Bill Miner. I
am well acquainted with Miner's sisters, andean recognise the family likeness even if I had no other proofs.
Last night I saw the man stripped.
He was lathering his hands, and I
asked him to turn them over, wishing
to identify a stencil mark on his arm,
He turned his hand over but not
enough lor me to see all of it. I asked him again when he was wiping his
face, and on his second refusal seized
hold of his arm and turned it over.
There was tbe 'dancing-girl' tattoo,
well known to be on Bill Miner's arm.
Other marks correspond also. He has
a scar on bis hand which corresponds
with the Pinkertons' description. His
eyes also are unmistakable."

Seated upon the stage were the

choice seats and before 2 o'clock the
auditorium und galleries were filled.
Behind the scenes were gathered over
100 sweet-faced, Biuiling children, sons
and daughters ol local engineers.
These children joined in a chorus of
welcome and worn loudly applauded,
The songs of the children and the
Wdrk of the engineers' orchestra, and
the double quartette of tbe Lat.-ies'

features of the receptiou.
Seated on the stage wus John P. St.

Victoria, B. C, May 18.—The
echoes ol the bugles sounding " Last

morning at Work Point barracks,
accentuated tbe severance ol Imperial
military control ol Canada, when the
royal engineers and garrison artillery
to the number of 260 embarked on the

departing troops were given a cordial
farewell, hundreds of Victorians with
the Fifth Regiment of Canadian
Artillery turning out in the chill of
the morning to give a parting cheer.
The band played "Auld Lang Syne"

(irani) chief's address.
Mr. Stone opened his remarks by u
historical comparison ol the many
ages of tho world, the rise and fall ol
empires, und as a climax to bis introduction, he reviewed tlie progress of
the present age and its many in ven
lions, notably thut of the slenin engine. He spoke of the objects ol the
order and said iu his many trips
acrosB the American continent from
the Atlantic to tbe Pacific, und Irom
the. Great Lakes to the gulf, he was
often naked il the brotherhood really
stood for anything, and if su, what
were its objects and aims, Ily way ol
explanation of such queries Mr. Stum
snid ho told them that tbe brotherhood stood  for sobriety, truthfulness,
justice and morality; ibat it was opposed to cliilil labor, stood for better
labor conditions and the uplifting, the
educating and the inculcation oi home
..rinciples in the liimilies of the engineers.
He said: "More lias been accomplished in tbe pnst 100 yeurs for ilie
good of labor than during nil ages
jinst, uud we are hopeful enough to
believe that by clinging tenaciously
to the right, we will accomplish more.''
In speaking of the insurance feature
of the brotherhood, tbe speaker said
that an insurance fund of $88,000,000
is lieing curried by the order aud that
,$15,0(10,01111 bus been paid out to beue-
liciaries since the inoeption of the
brotherhood. He spoke at length on
the great good of the insurance
engineer's responsibility,
Turning from the insurance feature,
he spoke of the great responsibility
which the engineer has, and of bis
efficiency as a workman. "You may
n it believe it," he said, "but out of
, very Hill Bremen ou tlie road only
Seventeen get to be engineers, and out
i.l this seventeen only six ever become
passenger engineers." He explained
that thn work of the locomotive engineer is not n simple trade easily
picked up, but that it takes ability
and much experience ta become one,
and even then a good eye and quick
thought nre requisites necessary to
bold the position. An engineer, he
explained, must be a sober and attentive workman,

Views of Golden Gate Calamity on Wednesday Night.
The citizens of Revelstoke will be
presented with an opportunity to see
the destruction of Sun Francisco by
lire, niter the sesmic stroke had committed its destruction and left that
proud city of the Golden West in a
condition utterly helpless to resist the
aiviul holacaust that visited it immediately ufier the shuck.
Mr. H. M. Kcefer, who was in Oakland. Cal.,at the time of tlie calamity,
immediately proceeded to tbe stricken
city, and with the assistance of Mr. G.
IM, Weister, a photographer of note,
who wns formerly in the business nt
Portland, Ore., obtained nearly 300
views of San Francisco in the very
midst ol her misfortunes. Out of tbe
large number of views taken only 150
could be used when finished, the balance being of too cloudy an appearance, on accouut of the huge volumes
of smoke.
The photographs thnt were finished
and toned have been made into stere-
opticon slides. Mr. Keefer has the
entire eolleotion, which he showed in
Vancouver for tlie past three nights
to crowded houses, which highly appreciated the excellent lecture delivered
in uu intelligent manner by u man
capable of telling what thc pictures
represented, he having been ou the
spot when they were taken.
Mr. Keefer has in bis possession a
puss issued to liiin by Adjutant Cieu-
eralJ. B. Launch of the state militia
of California, permitting him to pass
within the confines ol the city while
it was under martial law, Without a
doubt this is the only one of its kind
in liritish Columbia, und only a few
are to bo seen in tin. United States, as
the number issued was limited to a

SATURDAY, MAY 19, 1906
The movement to establish a university lor the Province has uur hearty
sympathy. Such an institutiou could
be provided for by reserves from the
vast resources of the province without
becoming i burden on the taxpayer.
We have for some years urged this
course and it is a mutter of regret that
it was not adopted at nn earlier stage
However, it is never too late to mend.
The action taken by Magill University last session of tlie legislature
seems to have aroused all kinds ol
sectarian jealousy, without any justification for such. The University could
not be under better hands than
Magill. That University is better
equipped for tbe kind of educational
work required in this province than
any other, has had more experience,
and a world-wide reputation, whioh,
to a new institution, could not fail to
be ol tbe greatest value. In engineering, science, law, and medicine, Magill
leads, and it* graduates are everywhere in demand. Instead c-1 creating
counter interests then, which cannot
fail to be detrimental to the grand
aim in view, we urge that Magill be
encouraged in tlie good wnrk it lin -
begun and that the university which
it proposes to establish in this
province have tbe hearty support „l
the Government by substantial endowments on condition that thu interests ol the province In- suititl.-.
represented on the Board. Tlie action
taken by the sectarian bodies meeting
at Victoria lately was, lor a purely II.
C. University, we regret to -ay. apparently prompted largely by local jeal
ousy between Victoria and Vancouver
—a condition of things which the
province in general will denounce in
unmeasured terms. The work should
be placed on bigger nnd broader lilies,
and we are satisfied the course we suggest, of collaborating with Magill in
the organisation and maintcnanoe ol
the proposed university, will be the
best for the true (durational and development interests of the province.

We recently pointed out the untie-
suability ol allowing Canadian bunks
to follow the practice of rushing their
lunds to New York at high rales during panic times on the New York
stock exchange, The Montreal Slur
takes up the issue and a correspondent of that paper writes:—
"'Canada for tlie Canadians' is
whnt you often bear, but evidently
that does not apply to bunks. Tbey

instead of helping to build up Canada,
tbey lend millions outside ul Canada.

Peace hns ite victories ns well as
war, The Mountain und Shuswup
division of tbe C. P. It. is the must
costly nnd dillicult division to satisfactorily administer, yet i-; obtaining a
big record in the hands of Supt,
Kilpatrick, and conditions were never
better on thc division. Tlie power is
in better shape than on uny other
division ol the west, thanks to the
effective work done at the shops here
under the supervision of Messrs.
Phipps, MitBtur Mechanic, and R,
Anthony, shop foreman,
The train service cannot be beat for
punctuality and efficiency, and there
is not a liner lot of men to be lound
anywhere than the trainmen aid
olliciiil stall' on this division.
This division is setting a good example to the rest of the system by the
neat way in which tho rond is being
cleared up Irom end to end, making
the line look much cleaner mid attractive to passengers and tourists.
Then, again, the stern and deter-
ined way in which Supt. Kilpatrick
Stayed With the hunt for the bandits
who dared to hold up a train on his
division is a subject (or the best congratulation ot all bunds, as showing
such a determination was an incentive
to those who look part in the effort
to circumvent and capture thc robbers, and the superintendent's persistent watching over the work, and the
tact that he spared no step necessary
to success, had much to do with such
effective results.

Ottawa, May 11—It is not always
within the lour corners of a debate
that the most interesting items are
lound iii the proceedings ol the House
of Commons. The returns that are
brought down Irom time to time otten
contain items ol interesting news,
whioh are only made public il the
wide-awake pressmen drop on Ihem
and make them known, ln this class
is the return whioh was brought down
one day this week, which gives some
insight into the relations ul thc immigration staff in England to one another, Mr. W. T. It. Preston, whose
name is not unfamiliar to renders ot
the publia press, has been having
quite a little trouble with his subordinates, snd more than one has found
it necessary, apparently, to appeal tu
head quarters here, before he was able
to get what he wanted. There is little
doubt that the men who are charged
with the developing of Canadian interests in the Old Country, are as a body,
capable, painstaking and hardworking,
it seems a pity that there should be
friction between them, lor such a condition ol affairs must militate against
the general efficiency ol the staff.
The attack on Hon. A. B. Ayles-
worth, the new Postmaster General,
veiled under a general resolution expressing disapproval ol ministers and
deputy heads ol departments practicing in the law courts, except in the
interests ol the country, did not produce very much ol value to its promoters. Almost without exception
the men who accept cabinet positions
do so at great personal sacrifice; they
are men with large commercial or professional interests, and in the case in
point, it is a well known fact tint for
years Mr, Aylesworth had declined to
give up the time from his lucrative
law practice to devote himself to the
service Dl his country. It is therefore
not surprising that where it can bo
done without sacrificing the interests
ot their department, any of them wish
to continue to retain a portion at
least ol their private business; and
there is nothing remarkable in the
(act that neither their constituents nor
the House can see any objections to
their so doing,      •     "
The case of the deputy heads is vastly different; they are engaged to devote their whole time to the duties of
their cilice, and anyone who has any
experience in the work of a department-need not be told that that will
leave little time for anything else.
is settled for this session at any rate,
and it may be safely added that Mr.
IV. F. Maclean, of South York, is also
settled, not only for this session, but
(cr all time, so far as any influence lie
may have in Parliament is concerned.
A more unmerciful, one ie al.nost
tempted to say brutal, roasting than
the honorable gentleman received at
the hands ol his own political friends,
has seldom il ever been heard within
tbe walls of the green chamber, and as
a result, not only was his repeal bill
knocked out by a vote of 167 to 9, but
Mr. Maclean himsell is lelt practically

This ie the same man whose pretensions to the leadership of the Conservative party were seriously discussed
one short year ago,
A very excellent move ie that of
Dr. Stockton, the Conservative member for St. John City and County, who
has secured a special committee "to
inquire into and report upon the sale
ol fraudulent or deleterious medicines
in Canada," It is universally admitted that immense harm is done tlie
public health, to say nothing ol the
public morals, by the unrestricted sale
of tht tons of quack stuffs that art
yearly dispoied of in this country, aud
if the people should be protected in
the matter ol loud adulteration, they
certainly need equal protection in this

from the House. Mr. Ralph Smith,
ol Nanaimo, B. C, has called the
attention ol the Commons to the fact
that although our Parliament has
legislated against immigration (rauds,
they still find a happy hunting ground
in England, where, the Canadian law
cannot reach them, and he proposes
that otlicial representation in the
matter bo made to the Imperial
authorities. The debate is still under
way, but there is little doubt that
something ol this kind will be done.

uf the brot lit rlinod, the spun ker snid
that an insurance fund nl $H8,00I),000
is lieing carried by the order mid that
$111,1)00,000 has been paid out to beneficiaries since tbo inception ol thc
brotherhood. He spoke at length on
tbe great good ol the insurance
Turning Irom tlie insurance feature,
lie spoke ol the great responsibility
which the engineer has, and ol bis
efficiency as a workman. "You may
not believe it," ho said, "but out ul
every 100 firemen on the road only
seventeen get to be engineers, and out
of tills seventeen only six uver become
passenger engineers," Ho explained
that tlm work ol the locomotive engineer is not a simple trade easily
picked up, but that it takes ability
and much experience to become one,
and even then a good eye and quick
thought are requisites necessary to
hold the position. An engineer, he
explained, limit be a sober and attentive workman.
As a peroration he closed with an
apostrophe to the Women's Auxiliary,
and supplemented his eloquent re-
maks with a witticism that created
considerable applause. "It is true,"
be said,- "that these ladies do not run
engines, but some of them run the
engineers that do run the engines."
He spoke ol the hardship ol the engineer's wife, tlie long hours of waiting
and apprehension, the irregular hours
and the lonesomeness, and said tbey
deserved more credit oven than the
engineers tor the part of the duty
assigned tu their husbands, lathers
and sweethearts.

Rev. W. J. Stone, ot Clayoquot
Instructs Lawyers to Secure
Retraction ot Article Published by Nelson News.
VlotoillA, B, C, May 17.—Rev. W.
,1. Stone, ul Clayoquot, has Instructed
his solicitors to secure from the Nelson
Daily News u full apology for and
retraction of an article dated May 12,
which appeared in that paper, The
article is characterised as a libelous
slander .Failing satisfactory action un
the part ul the paper complained of
legal proceedings will be taken lor
defamation of character. The Methodist conference is much incensed at
tho publicity that has been given this
matter and especially at the article
published in Nelson.
The stationing committee of the
Methodist conference is having
troubles uf its own, centering upon
thc difficulty ut satisfactorily filling
the Nelson pastorate, and was in session until -I o'eluck this morning—still
without agreement upon ils final
report, which is expected this evening.
This morning tlio cunlercnce crystallised its position in tho matter of
higher education by the unanimous
adoption of the following resolution i
"That this conference concurs most
heartily in the pulicy of the Methodist
church in (nvur ot a provincial university for Britisli Columbia as one of the
provinces ul the Dominion, with which
collegos established by the various de-
noniinations ur by other bodies may
affiliate and so promote the unification
of the oducatiiinal system uf the province; and wc would urge upon the government ol British Columbia tho
necessity tu this cud of establishing
such a university and the setting
apart of a sufficiency of public lauds
for the endowment of sanio and that a
cunimittec be appointed tu confer
with the provincial government on the
above subject."
The resolution was moved by Dr.
Ebenezer llobson and seconded by
Rev. T, H. Wright. The conlerence
was pledged to provide $4257 for the
support of the Sunday observance
committee, of which Rev. J. P. Hicks
is chairman, although materially
modified from its original contents, is,
as adopted, likely to excite considerable comment. A few oi ite salient
recommendations arc:
" That every minister be urged to
preach on the subject ol Sabbath observance at leust unce in every appointment every year.
" That the work of the Lord's Day
Alliance receive special commendation
and a subscription be taken iu its
behalf in every church throughout the
" That the conference notes with
much gratification the strong efforts
being made by the Lord's Day Alliance
in secure tlie passage ol the Dominion
Lord's Day Bill.
" That all uur people be urged to
retrain irom tlie use of Sunday trains,
boats and street cars.
" That we also recommend that all
our people be urged to refrain from
Sunday dinner parties, visiting, picnic', excursions ur ulher pleasure-
seeking which tends to destroy the
sac redness of the Sabbath day.
■■ That our peuple be requested to
prohibit hunting ur lishiug uu their
hinds (sicj on tlie the Sabbath day.
" That yuur committee's attention
lias l,een directed to the fact that in
some ol the cities und towns ol our
province, fruit, confectionery and
tobacco -'ores and kindred places ol
business are open fur ordinary business on tlie Sahbatli and suggest that
the ministers and laymen attending
this cond-rence be exhorted to do all
that may lie possible in the several
committees to lessen or prohibit this
great evil."
