SUPREME COURT
Light Docket at the Revelstoke
Spring Assizes
The spring assizes were held at the
court house on the 11th inst., Mr.
Justice Irving presiding. There was
only one criminal case on the docket
that of Rex versus McKay. The defendant was charged with burglary in
November 1906, and was tried at the
last assizes when the jury disagreed.
The evidence was all taken down in
writing and shewn to the accused who
claimed to be deaf and dumb. The
accused bad not spoken all the time
be was in the Kamloops gaol awaiting
trial, except on one occasion when, as
Dr. linrris of Kamloops stated in the
witness box, that the prisoner had
uttered several oathe when going under Ibe inlluence of the anaesthetic.
The judge then aeketl if it were possible for a deaf mute to speak while
under any exciting influences or an
anaesthetic. Dr. Burris affirmed that
it wae possible. The jury acquitted
the accused, recommending tbat he be
placed iu some institution where hi*
physical condition could be looked
after. Theo J. Wadnian was foreman
of the jury.
J. M. Scott appeared for the Crown.
Lund v. Lund.—This case was a
petitiou for a declaration of nullity of
marriage. Decree grunted. .1. M
Scott appeared for tbe petitioner.
Wharton v. Wharton.—Petitiou lor
divorce on the ground of adultery.
The Judge held that the corroborative
evidence was not sutlicient. J. M.
Scott appeared lor the petitioner.
A rather amusing incident occurred
when Peter Rasmus Peterson appeared
before the tribunal seeking justice and
asked permission to address the court
which was graciously granted. Mr.
Peterson "wanted to know if when I
am taking a horse to tbe pound I can
be intercepted on the public highway
and have that horse taken Irom me?"
The Judge wished to know whether it
was Mr, Peterson's horse or the other
fellow's, when he wss told it wss the
other lellow's The judge suggested
tbat as h: was only there to try cases
aud not to give opinions that Mr.
Peterson had better consult a lawyer,
whereupon Mr. Peterson assured the
court with finality tbat it was no use
consulting any lawyers in this town,
tbat it wm justice be wm after.
Realistic Pictures
Pittsburg,   Pa.,   May 12.—With a
roar that would   bave done credit to a
Comanche,   J.  H. Burkhard, a policeman, drew biB   revolver at  a  moving
picture  exhibition   here en Saturday
night and literally   riddled tbe canvas
in which   a scries of  moving  pictures
called   The   Cowboy   nnd   the Sohool
Marm were being portrayed.    The ball
was crowded witb women und children
and   a   panic   was   narrowly averted.
The   pictures   wero   so   realistBc, the
melodrama so thrilling, it is said, tbat
the audience   bad   frequently broken
into  applause, an  unusual  thing ut a
moving picture bIiow.   Tbe realism so
all'ccted   tbe   policeman us he saw the
heroine in the  bauds  of   the outlaws
that he sprang   to his  feet, drew a revolver from his pocket and bang, hang,
bang, blazed away at the girl's oppressors.   Children shrieked, women faint-
ed, and  men paled,     A fellow policeman   quieted   the   otiicer and placed
him under arrest.
ANOTHER
HOLD-UP
A Great Northern Railway Train
Robbed.— Express Messenger Knocked Senseless and
$10,000 of uash Rifled.
Seattle, May 12,—,1, E. Perrine,
express messenger on the Great Northern train which left Seattle at 8:10
this morning for Vancouver was beaten
into insensibility by men who entered
tbe express car, presumably in Seattle.
The messenger did not recover consciousness until after the train was
bscked to Ballard, five miles out.
where the injured man was given
medical attention.
Perrine was leaning over a pile of
parcels which had tumbled into a
heap when be was attacked from behind by two men in the uniform of
brakesmen. Turning to grapple with
his assailants be was struck a crushing blow by bis own revolver, which
nad been grabbed by one of tbe
bandits. He was knocked senseless
and did not recover from his dszed
condition until the train had passed
Balland. Crawling to the signal cord
he stopped the train1 and the conductor went forward to find wbat was tbe
matter The latter found Perrine in
a pool of blood and the floor of the
express car littered with packages
which had been ransacked by the
robbers.
The train was then backed into
Balland and the injured messenger
given medical attention.
The robbers looted the express car
of all that was valuable, breaking
open the strong box and taking all
tbe cash that was inside. According
to express company officials this sum
was not more than $1,500, but another
estimate places tbe amount of the
booty at nearly .10,000. The train
left Seattle at 8:10 this morning and
was crowded with passengers wbo did
not know anything of the occurrence
until the train backed into Seattle.
It is supposed that the robbers had
confederates on the train keeping
watch on the conductor and train
crew.
The enr was n combination mail
and exprosB car, but according to the
U. S. postal authorities only one of
the registered mail sacks was tnken.
Bill Miner Not the Man
Totem Pole Suiiare, Seattle.—
Having hud it pointed out to me that
there iB a suspicion that I had something to do witb tbe bungling holdup
on the train between here and your
city I wish you to state tbat I bud
nothing to do with it. I feel that I
am on parole, and I have not handed
out anything but advice since 1 hnve
been hero. There is no one here that
1 would go cahoots in in a hold-up
anyway. Besides you can get money
hero without taking any risks Business is business and I want to be left
alone. You can tell tho provincial
bulls that I can prove an alibi in this
esse snd tell them not lo go stirring
up the Yankee marshals to look me
up 1 always worked in the open and
neuer bashed a man's head to get the
cash from the Adam's express strong
box in my life.
Yours truly,

VAST TIE
CONSUMPTION
$50,000 Spent Annually -Saving by Preserving—Depleting the Forests — 600,000
Acres Used Up Each Year.
Railroads of Western Canada nre
consuming vnst quantities of material
nt present. C. !•'.. Ussbor, assistant
passenger traffic manager of the C.P Ii.
Winnipeg, estimates the annual expenditure on ties, etc., nt about
fifty million dollars. Mr. Ussber
states thnt in the construction of new
track and for renewals, the steam and
street railways used, in 1906, over
one hundred million cross-ties. The
average price paid was 48 cents per
tie. Approximately three-fourths of
the tiea were hewed, and one-fourth
sawed.
Oak, the chief wood used for ties,
furnished more than 14 per cent.,
nearly one-half of the whole number,
while the southern pines, which rank
second,contribute about one-sixth.
Douglss fir and cedar, the next two,
with approximately equal quantities,
supply less than one fifteenth apiece.
Chestnut, cypress, western pine, tarn-
arac, hemlock and redwood are all of
importance, but no one ol them furnishes more than a small proportion.
Oak ai.d southern pine Btand highest in both total and average value;
the average value of each is 61 cents.
Chestnut ranks next, followed by
cedar. Hemlock, at 28 cents, iB the
cheapest tie reported.
More than three-fourths of all ties
are hewed; and with every wood from
wbicb ties are made, except Douglas
fir and western pine, the number of
hewed ties is greater than the number
sawed.
About ten times as many Douglas
fir ties are sawed aB are hewed. Of
the oak ties a little over one-sixth,
and of the southern pine ties, less
than one-third are sawed. In contrast to the southern pines is the
western pine, of whioh more than
one-half ties are sawed. In general,
when lumber has a relatively low
value, tbe proportion of sawed ties
increases, because the' market lor ties
is always aotive, while that for lumber-
is frequently sluggish. All western
species are effected by tbis condition,
for Btumpage is abundant and its
value relatively low.
Ten per cent of the ties purchased
were treated with preservatives either
before they were purchased or at the
treating plant ol the railroad company. At least ten railroad companies,
are operating tbeir own plants for the
preservation of their construction
material!
Of tbe many forms in which wood
is used, ties are fourth in cost, sawed
lumber being lirst, firewood second,
and shingles and laths third. It has
been calculated that the amount of
wood used each year in ties is equivalent to the product of 600,000 acres of
forest and that to maintain every tie
in tbe track, two trees must be growing.
With nearly 860,000 miles of railroad truckage, and approximately
2,800 ties to the mile, there nre over
800,000,000 ties constantly subject to
wear nnd decay.
The railroads leport thnt iu the
foi in ul ties, cedar lasts eleven years,
cypress ten years, and redwood nine
years. Their woods, however, luck the
desired weight uud hardness, uud,
what is more important, I bey nre not
available iu tbe region of the trunk
linos of the central und eastern slates.
When il is considered then, that the
service ol the longest lived tie timbers
in general use—chestnut, white 011k,
iiliuin nis, spruce nnil Douglas fir—is
but seven years, while with some, us
the lilack ouks, it is hut four years,
wheruns a treated tic with equipment
to lessen wear will lust fifteen yours, it
is apparent bow much the railroads
can save if preservative treatment of
ties is universally adopted. The saving in the drain upon tbo forests is of
even greater niome
Tore Down Wrong Bridge
Grand Forks, 11. 0,, May 12:—
After securing permission from tlie
city of Grand Porks to destroy the
north pier, at the old Kirst street
bridge, the Yale Columbia Lumber
company put men to wink, and when
the job wus finished it was ascertained
that they hsd destroyed the wrong
pier, being tbe south pier, and not tbe
one intended to have been removed.
The workman who removed the wrong
pier ssys that he received orders Irom
some of tho aldermen to do the work.
By the removal of the wrong pier,
damage to the extent of $35000 was
done, and   tbe   prospect  for   a   new
I bridge at the foot of  First  street is
delayed.

BEWARE OF THE  KNOCKER
Beware of tlio   people  who  are
constantly belittling others, finding
Haws and defects in tbeir characters
or slyly insinuating Unit tbey  are
not quite what they  might   to   be.
Such persons arc dangerous  to the
community   and   are   not   lo   be
trusted.     A disparaging mind is a
limited   nutty,   unhealthy    mind,
lt Oan neither see nor acknowledge
good   in   others.      It is a jealous
mind, it is positively painful  to it
to   hear   others   spoken    well   of,
praised or commended for any virtue or good point.      If   it   cannot
deny the existence  of   the  alleged
good it will seek to miniiiize it  by
a malicious "if" or "but", or try in
some other way to throw  a  doubt
on the  character   of   the  person
praised.     Complaint    should   be
favored by suggestion.    It is better
to hint an improvement than merely rail at an   evil.     Before   condemning a man, his method  or his
work, it is good to be prepared   to
show how either may be enhanced.
Inefficiency is not always a sign of
ignorance,  apathy or carelessness
nor does it necessarily  betray   the
absence ol any desire to do better.
There are few  really unmitiga ted
evils.     The   smaller communities
have a harder task to run smoothly
than the larger, and this fact should
be remembered, that   when   intercourse and relationship in ordinary
business life are so   closely   interwoven with the majority   of   those
units which go   to   make   up   the
whole, it is not beholden to anyone
to caBt aspersions on his neighbor
and otherwise   disturb   tho public
harmony.
of themselves of late, as compared
with other folk whose appetites arc
so voracious as to outlaw all such
scruples. Is there not just a grain
of growing prejudice in favor of
money that is earned, as compared
with money that is got by stealth
and dexterity? Really it looks as
though wo might sec a bull market
for character, We have had bull
markets for pretty much everything
else with a good deal of subsequent
deterioration in values. If anyone
is long of righteousness and has
been acquiring lines of moderation
and clean living and honest industry, we earnestly counsel bim to
retain his holdings, for it really
looks us though tbe market for such
things might be considerably
strong.

INTERIOR   FRUIT GROWING.
This haa been a late spring in
British Columbia as well as thru'-
out the Dominion as a whole but
this slowness is a blessing in disguise as in a late spring there is
always less danger of an ill-timed
trust nipping the buds. Everything points to a bumper for the
fruit growers of British Columbia
and people have shown their appreciation of the fuel by setting to
work in real earnest to get their
orchards into shape this year.
Never before has there been so
much energy put into the work of
spring cleaning. Throughout the

the chinch represents to these great
am! fundamental iiuestiuiiB.
(a) In relation to politicial life and
OOllditions, we believe the laxness anil
indifference of the majority of Christian people to the great political issues
is most serious. It is a question whether the responsibility lor much of  the
political corruption may nut le placed
upon t Inii-c wbo seem must to deplore
their existence, because of their failure
to bring to bear upon tlie political rep
rcseiitatives the inlluence of their personal interest and activity.
(h) In relation to ancial questions
we believe that verv much of the
social unrest that prevails today is
alien to the church of GjiI and is serious in its tendencies- Further, that
social and economic movements arc
largely out of sympathy with tbe
church's activities. We believe that
much of this might be corrected,
would-'the church at large and Christian people in general take a more
active and intelligent interest in these
questions.
Therefore, be it resolved. That the
conference be requested to issue a circular to onr congregations, over the
signature of its officials, urging our
people to actively interest tbemselveB
in the politics of the Country; emphasizing lhe sacredness of the ballot; tbe
constant need of giving to the representatives tbeir active support without
reference to party; urging active participation iu the great issues of the
observance of tbo Sabbith; local
option: advising our people to carefully
study the questions of the issues involved in the great social und economic
movements.

it's real leather all the way through—and at
$5.00 it's cheaper than a cheap shoe. Wilh
leather going sky-high in price, you want the
shoe that is stamped with the plain price and
backed by  the Seal of Certainty.

LACK OF INTEREST.
In a recent   issue   we called the
attention of  tlie  intelligent public
to the  advisability of  pushing the
clock on one hour, and thereby giving a lunger evening  to those who
under the present system  bave little or no time to  devote  to recreation and to various pastimes and to
do any work that may  be required
to lie dune on tbeir premises.   We
are now spending the best hours of
the day   in  bed or else waiting iur
the day's work   to  begin, when we
could very   well   and   to better advantage rire one hour   earlier and
have the hour put on to our leisure
time after mir regular day's work is
done, and  put   this period Ol   time
to a more   profitable   use than in
passing it King in bed.     We (eel
that the majority of right thinking
people would welcome the change,
which would lie especially applicable to those who spend all day in
stores   and   offices, and to whom a
longer evening   would   be  a boon.
It seems a hard and difficult matter to try and  instil any new idea
or change into the Revelstoke public   who   are   content   to   ramble
along in the same old groove, without going out of their way to bring
about any reforms that  may be of
direct   or   indirect   benefit to the
community at large.    Although we
as   citizens   generally   really   do
profess a progressive policy aB regards  our city, yet we rarely put
our theories into practice, and invariably   let   tbe   matter dwindle
away   and  die  a   natural  death,
sooner than   go out of   our way to
effect the change.     If   only our
people   would   get together in the
true sense of the word and honestly
their crops or tbey would not be
going to such expense and trouble
And not only does it promise well
for the crop but that the market
also shows signs of being better
than usual. The fruit crop of the
province will be handled tbis year
to the best advantage by tbe Fruit
A Produce Exchange which is now
in direct touch with all the leading
fruit producing sections ol B.C.
and has the confidence of practically the whole of tbe shippers
and growers. Tbere bus alwa;j
been a strong demand for Ii. C.
iruit, but it Beams that the demand
is now stronger 'ban ever. This
means, of Bourse, a new impetus to
the industry of the Interior which
bas now assumed large proportions
although there IS  always    riintii for
improvement We on our part
have the utmost   confidence in our
own particular district as lo its
future success as u fruitgrowing
centre.
ti.sti open for tbe benefit of the public
1 am afraid Mr. Editor '.hat I shall
be taking up to much space in your
piper, therefore I conclude with beet
wishes to tbe success of tbe town and
the Mail-Hebald.

A CHARACTER MARKET
lt would be nonsense of course to
tnlk about not wanting money, for
wc all do want a certain amount
of it to pay onr bills. The desirable
amount is not small either, for current bills tend to be high. If there
is a reaction and some obange for
the better it may be traceable to
the circumNtanci' that, the value of
dollars has been cheapened relatively tosoino other valuable things.
Is not character looking up a little
these dayH as compared with apparent affluence ? Do not folks who
can afford to be a little squeamish
about how they make tbeir liviriKe,
and about the degree ol extortion
lhat they practice, arid tbe size and
(ironineflH of their Imposition on
the community, think rather better

A grievance the lumbermen general
Iy express is as regards the title to
provincial timber licenses. As these
sliinil they are valueless   for   purposej

the remedy required, several loading
lumbermen expressed the opinion that
it the btuniptige were made a fixed

they intend to place on a basis second
to none in the Puss. Already there
are 1,500 people there and the town is
building up rapidly. Tbe mine equipment will be amongst the best in
Canada. The mines are developing
well. One thousand coke ovens are
under constitiction to provide fuel for
the smelters.
Tbe Great Northern Railway have
built between Kalispel and Fertile on
an even up grade to the mines one of
tbe llncst road beds on the continent
and it is a sight to behold the great
trains of Irom GO to 100 cars of coal
and coke which this system daily
hauls down the grade. The formation
of the extension of the system to
Michel bas been completed and tbis
road will soon be opened. It is said to
be the company's intention to extend
tbe road to Calgary and give that city
its lirst competing Ifne.
The lumber business is active in the

the Ottawa, out from Slocan City, has
developed a huge body of ce at depth

shipped several carloads ol ore which

The occupation of land for fruit
growing around Nelson, Slocan, New
Denver, Creston and Cranbrook is
proceeding a pace. At New Denver a

B. C. COPPER COMPANY'S SMELTER, GREENWOOD, It   C.
full supplies of logs are available.
Several of the mills are building lugging railways and summer logging will
form an important industry in the
near future. So high an authority on
lumbering as Otis Staples, of WyclilVe,
told Mr. Haggen be was saUslied the
logging railway would in the end prove
the most economical means of handling logs between the bush and tlie
mills.
Al must of tbe n ills the stocks are
low, t bough there are (unr or live yards
that carry between   ten   million   and
sinn of the C. P. R. Marysville branch
up the St. Mary's Valley through tbe
low pass there to and around the bend
of the lake to connect with the Lardeau Railway. With tbe construction
of tbe remaining link between (ler-
rard and Arrowhead, it is pointed out
passengers oould be landed from Crow'e
Nest points to the main line at Revelstoke in one day, und thus bring the
trallic direct through British Columbia
instead of driving in Btiutb over the
Great Northern as is done to a largo
extent by Ihe present circuitous route.
St Mary's Valley is notably rich in
silver-leail and copper ores, ami such a
railway would develop  an   important
mineral section.

"Pink Dominoes"
The Revelstoke theatre going public
will bo trea ed with something particularly interesting and amusing in
the way of high c'ass comedy on Monday, May 25th, the Victoria Day holi
day. The amateur dramatic club
have always been noted for the excellence of their choice of plays and also
for the style of productions which have
invariably pleased their patrons and
the people at large. The amateurs
have much pleasure in staging on this
occasion the celebrated high class
comedy "Pink DominoeB," a play
bristling with humor, and full of
comical situations. Tho piece is bright
and breezy and keeps the attention of
the audience on the thread of the
story from beginning to end. The
club hag consented to produce the
play as a benefit for the Y.M.C.A, and
the public will now he afforded an
opportunity of winding up their holiday by witnessing as clever a comedy
as has been put on in Revelstoke. The
patronage of the public is particulary
invited on this occasion.
Unjust Attack
Eastern papers have been "rightly"
scoring a pamphlet, says the Commercial recently issued by a big trust
company that warns British investors
against Canadian municipal securities.
One Eastern Canada authority says
thst from internal evidence tbe. company in .question apparently- is on
terms of intimate association with the
syndicate of Canadian financers, and
companies tbat have been engaged in
diverting Canadian capital for their
own private advantage from the borne
enterprises where it ought to be employed, to South America, Mexico and
other foreign parts!'' That this ia the
case can hardly be doubted when it is
seen that tbe object of the 'pamphlet
is to boost these same foreign undertakings at tbe expense of the credit of
Canadian municipalities. The ground
for this direct attack on the cities and
towns of the Dominion is tbeir alleged
inclination to waste large sums on ill-
considered enterprises and tbe ease and
readiness witb which their powers are
extended, presumably by the provincial
legislatuie,
The Toronto World says in regard
to the matter that this ring of financiers who have heen exploiting the
public service of Mexico and other
distant countries is to all intents and
purposes identical with the ring that
has been for years out after the publio
services and public domain of Canada
and her provinces. An aroused public
opinion, however, is presenting strong
and increasing opposition to the notion
that the great nnd growing urhau
communities of the Dominion are to
be utilized as happy hunting grounds
for would-be multi-millionaires who
see in them vast opportunities for private profit ft is because the peoplo
are determined to have public services
and utilities run for the common good
and been use parliament and the legislators are becoming   more  responsive
popular sentiment, tbat these same
landers have set tbemsclvea to decry the credit, ol Canadian municipalities. Hut tbey will nut sueceisl. The
British public anil British investors
are nnl ignorant of tho devious   stock
manoeuvre! and   methods  ol  public
service corporations nnd of llioae   who
control them,
II attacks on the credit of Canadian
municipalities are to continue, the
"World goes on to say, il will become
necessary for them lo act   in self de
fence. They have nn reason to fear a
lull disclosure of the facia and circumstances mul they can confidently count
on a thoroughly sympathetic hearing

Britain
Lardeau Mines
BpOKaXK, May 12,—That the Lardeau mining district of British Columbia is full of promise and merely

there in which he is interested. Mr.
Dewey was accompanied by J. P. El-

treatment.     Speaking of his trip, Mr.
Dewey said yesterday:—
" My trip in British Columbia resulted in some surprises to myself,
although I was prepared to find the
Lardeau district promising. I took
with me Mr, Elsom who sampled
several properties and who believes
them rich in gold, silver and lead,
although he bas as yet made no
assays. While in the Lardeau we
located a deposit of commercial gr iph
ite near Upper Arrow Lake and also
saw samples of a deposit of asbestos
from Mount Martin. ThiB asbestos
possesses fibres from seven to sixteen
inches, which is said to be an extraordinary length, the fibres'' being
about eight or nine. We also found
a 26-foot ledge of onyx in place, that
looks as if it were of commercial
value.
"In the mining districts there haa
been considerable trouble with the
treatment of the gold-bearing rock,
and it wae the opinion of Mr. Elsom
that the various camps could be advantageously worked only by the
introduction of several methods. The
best results so far' as I know show
but 60 per cent, of the gold saved,, and
this is only on' one properly. At
present there are about twenty stamps
in use there and also one or two small
cyanide plants. Some of the ore has
been concentrated and sent to the
smelters, hut with all the methods no
satisfactory results have been attained.
" A number of eastein men, with
whom another Spokane man and
myself are associated, have made
preliminary arrangementa to form a
syndicate and take over some of these
properties with the view to making
the reduction more economical."
