I'BISONEH'S STOllY.
Mr. McCarter called the prisoner,
who said—Hud been seven weeks in
Revelstoke when this affair occurred-
Sjoberg camo with wife and self from
Gulden. I look horses over the ruil-
Way truck from Banff to Golden, nnd
my wile went by train taking tlie
goods with her, including the gun.
Went from here to meet buys at Hear
Creek nnd took gun with me. Fired
gun at Hear Creek. Gun wont oil'
accidentally and knocked me down,
the barrels separating Irom the stock.,
Ltlt gun at Queen's Hotel. John
Sjoberg brought gun home ten dnys
before. Kept gun in woodshed. Took
gun on 29th Sept. oleaned it- and left
it iu kitchen to take it away with me
to Kamloops to look tor land. Sjoberg
wanted to settle up the board und I
suid to him, "We've always been good
friends, liko brothers, and 1 will
oharge you what tho board cost, .fi! n
week." My wife got mad nnd snid she
should have full amount, $5 a week.
Told her I would leave her and she
could take boarders und do what she
liked. She then went to hod, As* this
was my lust- night with tlm buys wo
sat up drinking. Went to my wife
nnd hnd lho gnu iu my hand and
asked for Ibe pistol, I put my hnnd
under thc pillow to get the pistol und
she suid John bud it. Asked her whnt
John wus doing with the pistol, Hud
gun in my bund. My wife jumped
nut of bod to grub the gun und I lold
her she would not gel it. In the
Struggle llie gun went off Snw John
in door und be shut it.    My  wife uu
nwuy.   Did not know that John was
bit. Gun lell apart like it did at Bear
('reek nud I pul the barrel un the
kitchen llnor and threw the stock oil
the hod. Talked 111 my own language
iu the kitchen. Wus not outside
with gun us stilted by Rutherford. Did
not leave house till  I wns going to
Queen's hotel. I heard John talking
hut thought he wns talking to tlie
boys. That was my wife's birthday
und she and I had whiskey and hour,
Neither John nor the buys had anything till evening. Had no Intention
of shooting John or my wife. The
discharge of Hie gun was accidental,
and il my wife hud not got of bod and
tried to grali tho gun the accident
would not have happened, My wile
bated John and I was to leave her
and go wilh Iiim.
Cross-examined hy Mr. Scott:—Wns
all ready to go and was nut taking any
Junkets, just tho gnu nnd plstul. I
did not loud tho gun, Did not see
John come into room, holt cartridges
Ik'ciiuso was afraid thoy would burst
barrel, and inlouded buying new
cartridges. ,\evcr said what my boy
stated that "somebody would bo killed
lonigbt." Never told my buy to get
away from door,    Did  not uso  the
language Ruth, rford suys I did, I
fell accidentally uver the table nud
burl my side and .Iuhii lell un top of
ine Was not jou Ions of my wife, Shu
just talked fo Jishness.
'io llis Lordship:—John told me be
was lil yours old. I uiu 45. My wifo
is 50. John wus old enough to be my
lather. Huvo twu hoys in tlio Slates,
the hoy here, and two gills died in
Alberta, Wus six years in Alberto,
Am culiiiiet-niiiki-1- by trade,
Mr, McCarter addressed the jury on
behalf ol prisoner, He pointed out in
order to iniike out a charge nf murder
the Crown wnuld have to prove intuit
on prisoner's part to kid Sjoberg or to
kill somebody else, resulting in Sjoberg's death. Hnd there been nny
motive shown why prisoner should
kill Sjoberg? On the other hnnd they
wero the best ol frieiuis, there wus nu
threat, and no amnions. Tlie only
evidence on which they could claim
lu show any intent wns that of Rutherford, which would not justify u
verdict on which tliis mnn should lie
banged. Jf they examined the gun
they would see it was liuble to kill
BOinelmdy ovory time it wus handled
While llut'ei'ford wus apparently n
disinterested witness lie was probably
mistaken, and in view of Johnson's
statement thoy could discount Ids
evidence. Neither prisoner nor the
boyl knew Hie man wus shot, and
there was not n particle oi evidence to
show Johnson's intent to kill Sjoberg
or his wife. Wns it reasonable that
any mini wishing to get rid of another
would du it the way prisoner was
alleged to have killed Sjoberg? This,
man's life depended on their verdict,
uud prisoner was entitled to the liene-
lit uf the doubt. The man wus without means and the government had
instructed him to see the case for tbe
defence was [airly represented. This
he had endeavored to du.
Mr. Scott said a man wus liable to
indictment for murder who did uny
unlawful act whioh resulted in iluitli.
If a iiinn goes about with a gun,
tlirenteiis to kill somebody, orders bis
boy out ui tho doorway, orders his
wife out of bed, and when, in endeavoring to proteot herself tbo gun went
off and killed Sjoberg it was murder,
In weighing the evidence they must
I consider the position of the different
witnesses. Prisoner wns on trial for
; his life and would tell uny slury that
| could hang together. It was natural
lho boy and nml Inn should wish to
protect the lather. The hither contradicted the evidence of tlie other witnesses. Drunkenness was no excuse,
i though ii he was so drunk he did not
know what be wns doing. It might
reduce llie charge to manslaughter,
Rutherford's testimony was disinter,
ested and straight forward, and
showed something else was working
in tlio prisoner's mind. Tho prisoner's
story wus well told It wns the only
story he could tell. He might not
have intended to kill Sjoberg, but it
wns through bis unlawful acts that
Sjoberg was killed, and he consequently committed minder, whether he
intended to kill Sjoberg or not.
His Lordship gave the.deiinition of
murder from the criminal code. It
was "culpable homicide." II there
wus culpable conduct they must bring
in the verdict i,f murder. If he intended to injure him, nnd he died it
was also murder. If the offender
meant to kill or wound his wife, nnd
instead killed Juhn it was still murder. The killing must lie done witii
malice, and that must be proved. It
wus for them lo say whether malice
11ail been proved, and if it was then
tlio serious crime of murder had been
committed. Rutherford appoard to
have been u reputable, truthful witness. Was it likely tbo language
used indicated the reason why ho shot
Sjoberg? Was Johnson jealous ol
Sjoberg? Was there any money difficulty between theso men? Better this
iiiiiii should escape thun that they find
an innocent mnn guilty Thoy must
lm guided entirely by the evidence.
Whnt did be ineiiii by saying "Someone will be killed to-night? Then
if lie meant John or his wile they
'. would be justified in finding n verdict
' ngiiinst him unless lie wore insane,
: Drunkenness would not excuse him.
| Whore is tlie ovidenoe of malice he
hud against John? II they believed
Juhn bud been fooling with Ids wife
and prisoner killed him in consequence
i bey musl bring iu u verdict ol murder. As (ii the indiscriminate use nf
fire-iiruis when death resulted it would
be iiiuiisliiughtur where thero was no
evidence of malice,   If they brought
in it verdici uf murder thorn was only
one result, und lur manslaughter the
term was imprisonment for fife or less,
Mr. McCarter asked llis Lordship
tn point out to thc jury the necessity
of giving prisoners tho benefit ol the
doubt,
His Lordship said il thoy bud any
reus,imil,h, iloiibl give the prisoner the
benefit ol It,

A PUBLIC GRIEVANCE.
Because we dared to ventilate
one of the most serious grievances
of the settlers against the administration of lands in the railway belt
the Inland Sentinel endeavors to
discredit our remarks by suggesting
the editor of the Mail-Herald had
a personal grievance against the
Dominion Land Agent because the
agent refused to do something irregular for him. We might easily
"tu quoque" the editor of the Sentinel, but consider such conduct us
unbecoming journalists as gentlemen and will have none of it. On
the other hand we can inform the
Sentinel the editor of the Mail-
Herald has never applied for an
acre of Dominion Government land
for himself either by purchase or
homestead, and that in any business he has had with the Dominion
Land Agent at Kamloops he has
always been treated with the utmost courtesy and consideration.
The article in question was based
on actual observation- ol an interview between three intending
settlers and the Dominion Land
Agent, and conveyed as nearb -.-
possible the exact language used.
URGENT PUBLIC
REQUIREMENTS.
It is up to the Provincial Government to give snlin- iillelition to the
presentment of the Urand Jury as
made on Thursday lo Mr. Justice
Morrison. The Provincial Goal iu
this city ib a disgrace to the provincial authorities, and ia a monument of tiller indilforonco to the
interests of this important und
growing oity, The other point.-
referred to aro also worthy of ihu
urgent attention of the Government.
namely the preservation of ihe
forests from devastation by lire
and the opening up of Big Bend
and Canoo Rivor country by the
construction of a road or tramway
round Death Rapids, und the extension of the trail north from
Revelstoke to connect with the
Canoe River Valley, Revelstoke
is the most convenient point from
which access can bo obtained to
Canoe River Valley, where settlers
are applying for land. By the enterprise of several of our citizens,
navigation has been established
halfway, nnd with the construction
of the road in question past the
rapids a smaller boat could he put
on the Upper Columbia River and
thus bring Canoe River within the
zone of navigation and direct
transportation, People are applying for land in Canoe Valley for
settlement. Two great railways,
the Grand Trunk Pacilic and Canadian Northern, are coming into
that valley, und great quantities of
supplies and numbers of men will
be wanted in there during construction. The city of Revelstok,
can have this outlining und supply,
also passenger transportation, if
the Government would only recognise the importance of having that
section of country opened up und a
few thousand dollars would do all
that is wanted. Aflor all it is the
interior of the Province that is its
back-bone and the feeder of the
coast cities, and the Government
should recognise this and be prepared to do justice to the interior
as well as the coast.
A GOOD SUGGESTION,
The big mineral discovery on the
west fork of Seymour Arm last your
was somewhat discounted by thc
inaccessaiblity of thc ore deposits,
as they are 20 miles from head of
navigation on Seymour Arm, und
near the Big Bend divide. A suggestion was made at the meeting oi
the Revelstoke Board of Trade,
which, if acted on by those interested in these mines, will ut once
place the property within reasonable menus of access, uud we commend the matter to the attention
of Mr. Hamill, Mr, Daniels, and
others of Armstrong, who are so
heavily interested. A well-known
mining engineer who suw the property states it is the longest ore-
body he bus every seen, being continuous for eight miles, About o'1
claims have been located thereon,
and it appears that as a big de
posit of low-grade ore it would he
hard to bent.
What it wants to bring it to thi United Stal
uie neighbors in a sense in wh
no two oilier nations in llie whole j f
world arc neighbors, for no two
others occupy a similar relative
position toward each oilier und the
rest of thn world, and lho respective
interests and people and territories
of no other two conic in touch along
a continuous lino 4,000 miles, in
extent.

UNDER TWO KLAUS.
The story we publish in today'i
issue, in tin- letter from Sun Fran
cisco, shows disgraceful graft sonic
whoro and is most discreditable lo
the State and Federal authorities.
That a woman, driven from her
wrecked homo with a child, both
with barely enough clothing to
cover thoir bodies, and without
timo to save u cent of their money,
should bo charged 50 cents for a
loaf of bread, when millions of
money wore subscribed to the aid
of those in want und distress, indicates that grafters, nnd nut the
needy are getting the benefit of
these "charitable contributions.
Though President Roosevelt turned
down the aid proffered by the
Dominion Oovernment, the Canadian people can say with pride that
no such outrages on graft as are
reported from the distressed city
could have been perpetrated under
tho dear old Union Jack.

The Board of Trade has been
doing excellent work in the interest
of the city and district of late and
we suggest to the business men
that they lend to this institution
their co-operation and support.
Several matters the Board have
taken in hand have been curried to
a successful issue and the recom
mendations of the Board receive
due weight in ninny quarters. As
the most representative institution
of llie business interests, the Board
should have the best support that
can be given it.
New settlers taking up land
along the lake shore at Notch Hill,
complain of the difficulties with
which they have to contend for
want of transportation. They want
a road and cannot got it. The
result is to badly handicap the
progress of settlement in that
quarter. As that district is represented by Hon. F. .1. Fulton, who
is a member of the Cabinet, we
trust he will take cognisance of this
complaint of a section of his con-
tituents and have it remedied,
['In- summing up of Mr. Justice
Morrison in the murdei trial at
the Supreme Court Thursday, was
one of the fairest and most imparts
inl to which we have evi r listened.
If his Lordship continues to conduct the business ol the I o irl as
he did Thursday he will be an ornament to the Supreme I rl Ben h

Canada, which has less than one-

EARTHQUAKE
Letter   From   a   Resident —
Awful Suffering and
Horrors.
Mrs, Turcott bus received the I Jloiv-
iug loiter from a lady friend in Sun
Krancisen describing her nvvtiil experiences from earthquake and lire. Tlio
letter states—"You must have heard
about the earthquake ive hud, uud lire.
Vuu can't believe the papers. I will
tell ynu just the way it- happened,
Ln-t Wcdr.esduy at 21) minutes past
live o'clock I woke with a start. The
bouse, a three storey one, shook like a
cat would shake n rat. I grabbed the
boy and run for the door. As I staggered across the room I fell dawn half
a diizeu limes. 1 thought the hoy wus
dead. The plaster was lulling all
round us, and glass and wood, A stove
citne through from upstairs and
ALMOST KILLED US.
At last 1 reached the outside dour
and then 1 got on the side-milk, The
ground was slinking. Women ran in
the streets with no clothes on aud
men in therr shirts, all screaming,
crying and praying. Children were
running in all directions. At last it
stopped. Oil Annie yuu should hnve
seen it—great big cracks half a bluck
wide opened in tlie streets—women,
men, children, horses, cars, dugs,
everything in them. 1 hung on to my
boy. Was iu my night-dress and bare
feet. I was so scared I was shaking
like a leaf. The boy was crying. The
main part of the city was all afire.
Everybody run crying "the whole
town is going to bum, save what you
can," All the water pipes broke and
tlie firemen were helpless—could not
get a drop of water. They came and
called out
"RUN TO THE HILLS."
I ran in the house, got some of my
clothes and dressed my boy. The lire
came alter us from block to block, Oh
what we Buffered no one cun tell.
Think of women und men lighting,
and women culling fur their children
who where burned or lost. Some
turned crazy, nnd when a saloon would
catch afire women nud men would run
in und drink all the- could, and carry
nwny all they could. Dead women
and men, children, horses, dogs, lay in
tlie streets with people walking nil
over them. Runaway horses and live
wires we(C other terrors on the streets.
I came- so in ar being killed, if I had
stayed another second in bed we
should hnve been dead. The whole
city is burned save a few old houses
lelt on the outskirts. Here we are all
on the hills with no clothing and the
wind blowing so cold. My boy hud

nor 1 hardly. Only a wagon comes
round unco n day and gives n little
piece ol bread. They charge 50 cents
fnr a luuf. 1 dun't know what I am
going t,, il,,, my heart is almost broken,
On top ol it nil it started to ruin nnd
not a shelter. We were all just soaked
They carried an old lady off, She did
not want to go but the guards forced
her away from her family because she
was sick.
My God ynu can't believe me when
I tell yuu
THEY SHOT MEN, WOMEN ANII CHILDREN
il tbey were sick with a catching
disease—just shot them down like
dog.. 1 don't known what will happen,
I am trying to keep up, Por the first
time tbey ure getting wagons out of
the city and are hauling nwuy the
dead,
There nre six-storey buildings rent
through the ground with only the
roof sticking out. I don't know
where Prank is. His place was burned
and he may bo dead. 1 have'nt seen
him yet. I can do nothing but cry,
cry all the time. I don't think they
will ever try to build up this city
uguin. A man enme around and gave
a lecture about the stars. He said the
starts read that we will havo another
earthquake about 5 o'oluok. God 1
hope not. I will not sleep a wink, 0
think oi your nice warm bed and 1
out in the cold.
From your friend that is in distress

GRAND JURY
Make Important Recommendations.
After completing tholr formal business nl the Supreme Court Thursday,
the Grand Jury met mid made the
following present, rent:
Revelstoke, ll. C,
3rd May, 1000.
The Honorable,
Mr. Justice Morrison,
Revelstoke,  B. C.
Muy It Please Your Lordship;
We are very pleased to be able to
have this opportunity cl welcoming
yoiii Lordship on this, your first appearance on the Bench at Revelstoke,
nnd we trust to have tho pleasure nl
seeing you ill your official capacity as.
often as tlie occasion warrants.
We desire to draw your Lordship's
attention to the urgent recommcndii
tion ol former Grand Juries with regard to the improved Gaol accommodation. It may he fruitless for this
Grand Jury to press any further notice
ol the matter, but wc leel it Incumbent upon us to do our duty, whether
those, who have the immediate authority to give our recommendations
effect, do so or not, Thc disreputable
stuto ol the Gaol in this town ie u sad
reflection on past and present Provincial authorities and a decaying monument to persistent negligence.
We trust that in view ol the improved financial outlook in thc Province and the brilliant prospects of
future prosperity, the incidental expense in this connection will justify
the authorities at this time, even if it
has not heretofore, in the erection of
a Gaol adequate to the needs of the
district.
Among the many sources of Provin
cial wealth may be mentioned the
Lumber Industry, and in this connec
tion we further recommend the adoption of some adequate system for the
protection of the immense ureas of
timbor awaiting manufacture. Our
experience in the pnst few years in
this district anil the opinions of those
most concerned in tliis vital industry,
point to the immediate adoption of
such means as wil protect this vast
and latent wealth from the destroying
ravages.
We arc cognisant of the fact that
there exists a system lor protection
Irom lire of those timber lands situated within what is known as the
twenty mile belt ol the Canadian
Pacific Railway On., but the far larger
percentage of timber outside this belt
is totally unprovided tor, In view ol
the dependency ol (uture prosperity
upon tlie lumber industry in the
Province, we deem thia to be a mutter
ol vital moment and we trust it will
receive that attention Irom the authorities which its importance merits.
The immediate necessity ol provid
ing for a waggon road around Death
Rapids is imperative, thus assuring at
mice access to the navigable waters ul
the upper Big Beinl country'extending to the "Boat Encampment" at
mouth of Ounce river, anil up Canoe
river towards Tete Jaune Cache, where
extensive areas of agricultural lands
and timber hinds are known to exist,
Such an improvement woold encourage settlement and hasten ihe development of this rich district.
We take the liberty of assuming
your Lordship's interest in these recommendations and trust your Lordship will bring them to the notice of
[he Departments concerned.
Respectfully submitted,
H. N. Coursier,
Foreman Grand Jury.
In reply His Loidship said:—I appreciate very much your kind expressions of welcome and am very pleased
indeed to come here, yet I trust thc
necessities of visiting you in my official capacity may be rare It speaks
very well indeed for a growing and
progressive town such as this is that
ihe calendar of crime is so small. As
for the recommendations in this presentment I shall forward them to the
proper quarter and trust they will
receive the attention (hey should.   I
ll .. ■ iu for your presentment.
