Verdicts on the Ceaths of Sis-
sons and Posol
Two separate inquests on men who
met dfeath by accident in two different
sawmills were held here by the coroner,
Dr.  Hamilton, on Wednesday lost.
Tbe verdict on John Siasnns, foreman of tbe Big Bend mill at Arrowhead, was couched in these ambiguous
words: "We find that tbe deceased,
John SisBons, met his death and there
is insufficient evidence to show the
direct cause of death."
The coroner told the jury previously
tbat, in his opinion, it was a case of
pure accident and no one was to
The prii. jipal witnesses were Dr. El-
liott, of Arrowhead; W. C Brewer,
manager, H. A. Falkner, timekeeper,
and G. B. Chambers, millwright of
the mill.
Tbe evidence allowed thut Sissuus

ground, bleeding from lhe head and

the chiel engineer, and tin \ bad him
removed to the hospital, He bad evidently been soaping the belt and bad
slipped and been struck by it.
Mr. Brewer paid a tribute to Siasona
as oue of the beat and moat competent men be ever bad in his employ.
As foreman he bad complete authority
and it wus his business to hire and
supervise the men. After the accident
Mr. Brewer had examined the machinery at tbe apot and found everything running all right.
G. B. Chambers, millwright, gave it
as bis theory that Sissnns had been
standing at a small (light of steps
Btiaping the belt to make it catcb,
when a piece of leather tbat tbey bad
fastened on to keep tbe lacing from

would have been knocked to the
ground. The belt travelled at the
rate of 3,300 feet a minute, Sissons

Dr. Elliott pronounced death to be
caused by bemmorliage ol the brain,
resulting from a bard blow.
The jury in thiB case consisted of J.

Frank Sheldo Sent Up on a
Charge of Attempting to Kill
Fred Orsetti—Case Watched
With Interest.
Frank Sheldo, brought back from
Calgary by Chief of Police Buin a few
days ago, waa committed for trial by
Magistrate W. W. Foster thia morning
ni a charge nl attempting to murder
Fred Orsetti, in Little Itaiy about two
weeks ago. Mr. A. D. Mclntyre, of
Kamloops, and Mr. W, I, Briggs,
appeared for the prosecution and Mr.
II. 8. McCurter for the defendant,
while Mr. Gillan held a watching brief
for Joe Falzetti, who isulao alleged to
be implicated.
Tho hearing was watched witli great
interesl by members ol the local
Italian colony a great many of whom
were in the room.
Fred. Orsetti, a pleasant looking
Italian, wbo appeared with his throat
bound up, told in good English tbe
story of a conspiracy against him tbat
smacked uf black-band, though tbe
workings of tbat mysterious order
were not in any way brought to ligbt.
His story wus substantially the same us
that already told, with a few elaborations. When be came from the bouse
of bis father-in law, Julian, in the
evening, four men jumped on him at
the gate. Three of them he reognized.
One kuown as "Joe" Romano slashed
at him with an open razor but missed
bim. Romano then grabbed him behind and held him, while Sheldo's
razoi cut down to the Adam supple iu
his Croat. Sheldo fell oil' the sidewalk immediately afterwards, and
"Joe" Romano, who evidently thought
it wsb Orsetti falling, said: "Frank,
wc have him now. Let us sec if be
has any money on bim." But tbere
was no attempt to take moDey as Orsetti was still ou his leet. The four
men iu tbe gang disappeared towards
the oust, and Oisetti wont back into
the bouse.
Orsetti added that bo bad a quarrel
with Sheldo three weeks previous
about bia brother who was working
with tbe accused in the C.P.R. yards.
Sheldo bad also come to him in the
work car and said, "You have quite a
bit ol money, you bad better divide it
up." Orsetti replied that he was
going to build a bouse and needed tbe
money himself. He thought Sheldo
was only fooling at the time. Joe
Falzetti, wbo is being held by the
police as an accessory, he recognised
as one of the four men tbat had
attacked him.
The evidence ol other witnesses
shed no new light on tbe
affair, though Chief Bain stated that
Sheldo had admitted to him after bis
arrest that he bad been present when
the cutting was done, but tlmt it wus
not he, but one of the others who had
done it.
Mr. McCarter said lie would reserve
his defence for the higher court, and
Magistrate Foster formally committed
Sheldo lor trial at the Full Assizes.
The case of Falzetti charged vvith
being an accessory t.i tbe er me is
going on this afternoon.

tell almost liow many feet fi.cli
acre Bhould yield. Added to this
there is the attraction of a market
close at band, and simplicity of
process between producer and consumer. With all these inducements it is not wonderful that so
many persons have become interested' in timber, so that from (his
source along the Provincial Government derived last year a revenue
rn' $2,658,531.
That an industry so large and so
important should be fostered and
encouraged in every possible way,
goes without saying. The lumberman is not only a producer in his
own time, but he is the scout and
supper of the civilization of husbandry, which should become one
ni (he best assets of the provinse in
thn years to come. The woodsman
drives roads into the forest, bridges
the gullies, clears llieslieiims. takes
away the heavy timber, and so. on
the more fertile lands, blazes the
trail for the settler who follows
him. The industry also provides a
means of sustenance to tbe settler
until such time as his land is
cleared and made productive. All
this considered it seen.s fair to ask
that the lumberman shall be given
reasonable security of title, facility
of access to his claims, and the
cheapest possible rales in conveying his products to the consumer.

There is certainly something
very encouraging, especially to interior mill men, in a statement
recently credited to W. A. Anstie,
secretary of the Mountain Mills
Manufacturing Association, in an
interview in Vancouver. He is reported to have said. "The up-country sawmill men are unanimous in
saying that the demand for lumber
from tin. prairie provinces is
stronger now than it has beeu anytime during the pastjthree years.
Virtually every mill is in operation
aDd despite the large output, lumber stocks on hand which last January amounted to 200,000,000 feet
have lieen reduced to 150,000,000
feet. With good crops tin- Fall
the improvement ol conditions in
regard 10 the lumber industry will
be very marked indeed."

and the land seeded down with
grass. A fence should be built
along the riverside and a stove or
fireplace installed bo that picnickers might boil water without danger
of starting a misli fire,
All this would of course involve
some 1 tienje, but it need noi he
great. There seemB no good reason
that the labor of prisoners, for
whose keep the city is paying,
might not be commandeered into
this service for (he City's benefit.
Under any circumstances if Revelstoke had a pleasant picnic ground
always available, a place with cool
grottos and shady nooks where
mothers might take tlieir children
mi warm summer days, and which
we could point oui to visitors with
pride, it would well repay tbe cost.
What is whiskey ? is the interrogative heading in 11 news article in
a contemporary. We venture to
say there are a few people in llevelsloke whom it would not take
long to answer that ijtiestion. They
could pick out one sample of the
real article from among a thousand
bottles of painkiller and cold tea,
Why should not Kevelslnke ha veil Stanley Park of its own'.' This
was the question asked frequently
by those who went out to the picnic
held in Columbia Park on Thursday afternoon. Around Stanley
Park, in Vancouver, the salt sea
ebbs and Hows; by the shore of the
Columbia Park. Kevelstoke, the
river that bears its name sweeps
down in rapid How carrying the
cooling and refreshing air of the
mountain snows with it. Columbia Park is of course smaller than
Stanley I'ark, being only about
IU acres in extent iiiiTtiiling the
race track but its size is sufficient.
Already trails and walks have been
cut through it, so that the nucleus
of its developmuit is well uuder
way. The work only needs to be
pushed to a successful conclusion,
A good road should be made as
nearly around it as possible,   paths

Stole a Ship
E.S. Kirkconnell, a wealthy rancher
near Wbonnock, B.C., waB arrested on
Tuesday last on the single charge of
having stolen a whole ship and its
cargo trom New York about a year
ago. Hie arrest was effected by Detective Wilmer o! New York, assisted
by Police Inspector Mulbern and
Provincial Constables Munro and
Smith, ol Vancouver.
It is alleged tbat in the spring ol
1008 Kirkconnell and his brother committed the most colot'sal theft in the
history of tbe Atlantic coast, boldly
Bailing away with a whole ship load of
goods obtained under false pretences
from eastern merchants. Tbe vessel
failed for Honduras and arrived safe
from pursuit with little misadventure.
Tben began a pursuit which finally
ended in capture, though not till the
ship containing the alleged stolen
goods bad landed them safely.
Both alleged thieves were apprehended in Honduras, and one ol them
alleged to be the man cipluredin
Whonnock, escaped by risking his life
at night by diving from the boat on
which he wad being brought to
New York.
Since this escape tlie search hss
never been given up. Several weeks
ago Detective Wilmer got trace of
Kirkconnell and finally located him
in British Columbia. He arrived
vuietly a few days ago and confirmed
his suspicions and the arrest followed
Kirkconnell is lighting extradition
lur which proceedings are still under
way in Vancouver, where further hearing wsb adjourned by Judge Mclnnes
till July 7th.
The Calgary Fair
All is in readiness fur the biggest
fair tbe west has known. It will be
held in Calgary Irom July uthjto 20th,
and on Monday it is expected there
will he in that city thousands of people from all purls ol Alberta, British
Columbia, Manitoba, Haskctcbowan,
and In lact every province in the Dominion as well as from many of the
border states. Visitors to tbe exhibition will see an array of horses, cattle,
sheep, swine and poultry that cannot
be surpassed anywhere. The larg- industrial building will contain exhibits
ol the pr.'ducts nl almost overy industry in the land. The district exhibits sent Inun different sections of
the western provinces will conclusively
show, in a collective way, what it is
possible lor lhe west to produce, and
one ol the iiiost tuagiiilicont louu collections ol paintings ol Canadian and
European urtists will be on uxhibi
tion in the art building.

the more serious part ol the exhibition, they mav seek the grand stand
at any moment during the afternoon

That the amusement progrumuie will

Vernon Man Attempts Both But
He Fails
A man named Thomas Mn-s tried to
set lire to the town of Vernon last
week, and then attempted to commit
suicide. The lire brigade got out in
time to extinguish the fire, though
not before one small building was
entirely consumed and some others
badly scorched. Mobs'b own house
wsb on lire, but no damage beyond
charring the floor where it bad been
started. Moss himself was found bj
Chiel Edwards lying in the rear of tbe
lot with his throat horribly gashed by
a razor which he Btill held in bis hand.
The cut had severed the windpipe and
tlie food canal, aud there were live
other gashes under the lelt ear. Dr.
Morris was sent for and in spite of all
his wounds the man was able with
assistance to walk to the hospital,
where from latest accounts he was
doing well Moss had left a note in
his room in the Coldstream hotel saying that owing to difliculties in making payment on his property he waB
going to burn up the buildings and
then kill himself.
Miner Left No Address
A. Mclntyre, barrister, of Kamloops,
has entered suit to recover IJ160 which
Bill Miner left in a bank iu New
Westminster, as part payment for his
professional services in defending
Miner; but Miuer went away without
leaving any address and the papers
cannot be served on bim. Mr. Mclntyre also entered a suit against
"8horty" Dunn and Colquhoud for
payment for his services in defending
them, but they had no money and the
claim was struck out. When Dunn
wsb served with the papers in the
penitentiary he asked, with a grin,
how tbey were going to serve Bill?
The amount ol Mr. Mclntyre's claim
is $500.
Famous Suit Dismissed
Tbe application for leave to appeal
the f luoue Star-White mining caBe to
tbe P, i i-y Council has beeu dismissed,
and th' s ends the uioBt costly piece of
mining litigation over carried on in
British Columbia. The real plaiu-
tiff in the case waa John M. Harris of
Sandon, and the defendant was Byron
N. White of Spokane. Mr. White
contended that the vien in his Slocan
Star claim waa continuous, and that
under the old apex law he was entitled to follow and work it through Mr.
Harris' Heber Fraction property
wbicli adloined bis. Mr Harrison
the other hand held that there was no
bend in Mr. White's ore vein, and
that instead of entering nis mine it
struck a cross fault fissure and followed it to a point near the Silversmith
mine. Mr. White won the first legal
round, but the appellate courts have
consistently upheld the contention of
Mr. Harris. All that remains to be
decided now is assessment of damages

because the grates are made in sectioni, not only can nothing but dust and R
ashes pass through, but after each ikaki_ig a different side can be presented
to the fire. Alio, wilh the Sunshine prate there is no back-breaking
movements attached lo the shaking. By gently rocking the lever, first on Ihe
left and then on the right, the ashes are ri-leased on both sides, ami fall through

Darwin's Anniversary
The hundredth anniversary ol tbe
birtli ot Charles Darwin was honored
in Cambridge, England, last Wednes
day by a gathering ol scientific men
from all tbe leading nations of the
world. A bust ol Darwin was presented by his American admirers.
Darwin is usually credited with having
originated the evolutionary theory of
the origin of man, though iu reality
the theory had been promulgated before bis time. He did however, by
his researches give it a basis and substantiality that it never bad before,
though it ie still a strong subject of
controversy. Apart from this Darwin's knowledi^e ol the anatomy and
habits of birds, beasts uud iusects was
marvelous, and his services to science
have been recognized by all.
Big Lumber Convention
The greatest convention ol lumbermen ever held ou the continent will
open in Seattle on July 12 and will
continue to July 15. It ie thought
that sixiy per ceut ol the lumbering
interests of the United Slates and
Canada will be represented, and there
will be a large number of delegates
from the coast and interior ef British
Columbia. Among the questions to
be discussed is tbat of "odd lengths."
Pacific coast lumbermen say that
present standards ol length were fixed
when the industry centered in the
east where the lumber was smaller,
and tbat by cutting tu these lengtks
from their big timber they waste
thousands ol feet every year. They
wish to have new standards fixed so
that this waBte may be eliminated aB
much sb possible.

Young and Old Went in Crowds
to Columbia Park
That it is a good thine for brethren
to dwell together in unity was well
illustrated in Kevelstoke on Dominion
Day, when all theohurobea iu tbe city
joined in taking their Sundny school
children to a union picnic iu Columbia Park. With the children, of course
there was also u good admixture of
pastors, masters and mothers, so it is
estimated tbat there were hetween 500
and 800 people all told on the grounds
in thealternoon. Six churches joined
in lhe festivity, namely, the Anglican,
Baptist, Methndist, two Presbyterian
and Koman Catholic, and needless to
say no theological dilerenoos prevented the youngsters from mingling
heartily in the various sports provided
lor them,
The day was warm, but the tables
were Berved under the shade ol the
trees between the race truck and the
river, and there it was pleasant and
cool, Mr. Manning had a refreshment
stand on the ground and did a roaring
trade in ice cream c.uieH and cool
di inks. It wus the first big picnic
ever held in that spot and everybody
proclaimed it to be the ideal place for
the purpose. A little clearing of the
underbrush would give Revelstoke a
beautiful park thereby the Columbia.
Family groups found shady spots to
ohat or play and the time paused very
pleasantly Ior all.
In the afternoon an impromptu program of Bports was provided and the
children und older persons alike
entered wiih neat intu the different

went down to Armstrong on
Thur-diiy last to assist, in celebrating
the national holiday thare. The lacrosse boys were very successful, defeating Verimn by 7 to 8j but worse
fortune attended Ibe baseball lads,
wbo, in playing Enderby, ran up
against defeat hy n score ol 10-0 A
crowd nt about 30 went down from
here in lhe early huurs ol Thursday
morning, returning ut. about 4 'AD a.m.
on Friday. They were all pretty well
tired out, but reported a very enjoyable day.
In the baseball mutch Lung did
some good lield work fm Kevelstoke
and Scott pitched well, but had errors
when bases were crowded helped on
defeat. In the afternoon another
baseball mutch was played hetween
Kelowna and Summerland, resulting:
iu a victory for Summerland by 8-7
Tbe lacrosse mutch between Kevel
stoke and Vernon was a line, clean
game, but the Revelstoke boys had the
bent of it all through. The forwards
showed good combination and the
deleuee was strong, while Louis Gould
in goal proved hard to pa-s. The
game was played in sportsmanlike
• pirit and there was not a man ruled
oft. A lacrosse match between 10-
lowna and Armstrong resulted li-2 in
lavor ot the latter.
In addition to the guinea the people
ol Armstrong left nothing undone to
entertain the visitors. They had
trapeae work and a slide lor life act
along an inclined wire with the performer enveloped in llunie. The Armstrong, Enderby and Vernon bands
were present and gave open air concerts together, and a public concert in
the evening closed the day.
