Clearing Land By Machinery-
Board of Trade Accept the
Mayor's Invitation to See
Plant in Operation
At Tuesday night's meeting of the
Board of Trade Mayor Landmark extended an invitation to the members, their
wives and sweethearts to see the steam
plant which is operating south of the
city in clearing land for settlement, su
on Thursday morning the lollowing
availed themselves of the invitation ami
mustered al the city hall: Messrs. \V,
Bews, C. R, .Macdonald, .McKinnon.
Watson, McLennan. Lawrence, Allen,
McKenzie, llriyys, Sibbald, Young,
Pratt ami Haggen. The parly, accompanied liy the mayor, was driven out tu
the property formerly owned by P.
Burns & Cu, uu the siiulh side of the
Illecilliwaet, aliout a mile and a half
south of the city as the crow flies. This
property consists uf SU acres, and was
recently purchased by Arthur Johnson.
Twelve years ago the standing timber
had been removed from it, leaving a
mass of stumps. The soil is a rich alluvial deposit, and the problem was to
get rid of tliese stumps that the land
might be cleared and made available for
cultivation, Mr. Lindmark being interested in land uu the west side of the
river, where lit- had purchased the
Wright estate, when al the Coast went
tu sec the extensive land clearing operations and experiments being carried uu
by the O. 1'. tt. There he was impressed
with the success uf steam lugging engines as implied to the stumping uf
land, and purchased une, which he
brought tu Bevelstoke and set it tu
wurk on the land suuth ut the city.
The plant has been at work about two
weeks and has proved a thorough success.
The members uf the Buard were astonished at the marvellous way in which ibe
plant handles the largest stump-. It
pulls them uut uf the ground, as it by
magic, hauls tbem tu a central puint and
hoists them up un tu a pile ready for
consists of a 6H h.p. vertical boiler and
engine lilted tu a double reversing
hoisting drum- A travelling cable is
anchored tu stumps, and this guides tile
main cable. A derrick is raised and the
main cable passes through a pully at the
top and is then attached to the travelling cable. The main cable is attached
to the stump to be extracted, the power
applied, and the stump, with very rare
exceptions, Immediately yields and comes
up with its roots almost entire. It is
then hauled to the derrick anil raised on
the pile ready fur burning, when tbe
pile is completed. The cable is automatically released and travels back tu where
it is required fur the next stump.
a.n- ACRE a DAY
is the record of stumping with ibis machine, and it is a remarkable result. The
plant will extract, haul and pile at the
derrick a stump iu four minutes on an
average. The regularity, reliability and
thoroughness with which the plant dues
its work is a pleasure to see, The smaller
roots are taken uut by horses, a team
being employed followiug up the stumping plant at this work, su tbat the land
is left ready lur cultivation. The cost uf
operation where the plant is wurking
makes it undoubtedly tlie most economic
means uf clearing land ever introduced
in the district. It takes five men to
operate the engine and stumping plant
and another live men are engaged clearing up and duing tbe extra wurk following the operation of the plant.
Tin-: social sins.
The Mayor then entertained the visitors with tea and cake provided hy Mrs
I,. Marseau after which the president
and vice-president of the Hoard felt so
refreshed they gave an exhibition nf
their wrestling powers, the stumping
machines having left it
fall. Honors were with
The president. Mr. W

thank Mayur Lindmark fnr bringing
them out and showing them what capital and energy cuuld du. The enterprise
shown ill bringing in this stumping
plant and clearing up their lands shuuld
be appreciated by the citi/.ens generally.
It was a great tiling fur their cily and
district. He moved a hearty vote uf
thanks tu the mayur.    I Cheers.;
Mr. P, Hi Young seconded tlie motion,
and in duing sn said this trip had been
a Ireat to every-one,

In the afternoon the wives ami friends

tu be a citizen of Hevelstoke. His
family and he bad enjoyed their residence here very much and had appreciated the nice social times they had had
since coming here. The Mayor, who
had taken a very active pari in this
work, was doing the right tiling in getting the ladies interested. Nuw it was
demonstrated the experiment was a
success, it would be still mure successful if a progressive movement of this
kind hail the support uf the ladies. In
the davs when he was iu politics he
never thought be could win au election
unless he lelt assured the ladies were un
his side, (cheers and laughter). He
moved a hearty vute ul thanks tu Mrs.
Marseau for the splendid refreshments
with which she had provided them, and
the ladies carried it, saving nice things

The Dominion Covernment has

Columbia will be completed early

aid to the opening up of the country on tlie west side of the Columbia river. The completion of the
Revelstoke-Arrowhead road is now
promised at an early date, thus
opening up a large and valuable

way Vancouver city investments.
Inside property in Vancouver is
and always will be good, but the
horde of real estate agents who
flocked to Vancouver Irom all
parts of the world, had to get a
living somehow, and many of them
got it by acquiring outlying areaB,
subdividing them and putting them
on the market as suburban land.
The city oi Revelstoke and every
town and village in the district,
every railway camp and every
lumber camp was Hooded with
the agents of these sharks seeking
whom they might devour, and hesitating not in their unscrupulous
work of misleading people into
placing their hard-earned dollars
where they were worse tiun wasted.
The Vancouver land boom has run
its course and many have learned
its bitter lesson. People have come
to us and told us of their experiences. They realise how true it is
that the far-off hills look green, and
wish they had invested in their
home town of RevelBtoke where
lots are at no fictitious price, where
rents aro high and good returns are
always to be got from building
investments; where rural and suburban land is.comparatively low in
price, and yields good and sure returns. Revelstoke is coming into
its own and this city and district
afford better opportunities to the
wage-earner to-day than ever Vancouver did, or can offer in the future
to men of small means.
lieing held up as they are. We
have assurances trom a reliable
New York syndicate that they weie
ready to tuke and operate the Eva
and Oyster-Criterion mines for
instance. They were willing in pay
a fair price. The controllers, however, would give no option and
verbal assurances were relied on,
The proposed buyers went to the
trou'dc to get their end of the
bu-i ii-- in shape and hoped tu
close the arrangement when, to
their astonishment, a raise was
made i, 1 the price—not for the benefit of llie shareholders, but for the
inside men. The result is to black-
eye British Columbia mining investments among tbe group of
capitalists who were interested, and
to injure tlie camp itself as well as
the men who have invested their
money theie and in the town of
This kind of a thing constitutes
a public wrong which the arm of
the law should be powerful enough
to remedy. In several British constitutions mining property cannot
be held iu such a way as to tie up
the country. It must be operated,
or extensions secured for bona fide
reasons, and then only for a reasonably short time. When a coin-
p iny or proprietor ceases to operate
a mineral property it reverts to tho
Crown and is open for re-location
and operation by others. This is
as it ahould be. The Crown granting of mineral claims in British
Columbia is the obstacle to such a
means of regulating mineral properties in this province, but the
owners of non-operating properties
can bo got at another way, and
that is by increasing the taxation
on developed and equipped non-
operating properties such as thoso
at Camborne, to an extent lo make
the holding of them unprofitable.
Tho taxation, too, should be based
on the price at which they are held
and not on the assessment. Here
is a problem ior the Minister of
Mines to tackle and work out. lt
will have lo bo faced, and that
Kor Homo time it lm- been a current view in financial circles that
there would be areaction in theVan-
eouver land boom, and tbe reaction

advised their friends to got out of
that class of investment   as it  Iuih
amounted at best to n gamble, and
now it is found that scores of
thousands of dollars have been
obtained from innocent buyers on
the representation and in the. belief
that lots sold were valuable as
suburban property. The, fiotitious-
ness of the dream irt being realised,

The Murderer Has Been Arrested
-Wife of Murdered Man
Tells All-Accused Committed for Trial
Gus Carlson, 11 miner, was killed in
his house on Halihurton street on the
As the result of the evidence nt tlie
inijuest the police arrested the wile of
the murdered man and Inter her paramour, 11 young man Hatred Holmes.
The liends responsible for the deed
had evidently stunned him, and then,
us ho lay unconscious, had tied a
slipping rope around his neck. The
inpo had lirst been drawn tightly
rround the neck of Carlson hy a noose
and then lor the rest ol its length,
about eight leet, coiled as tightly as it
could he pulled around the neck. Tinman had been strangled, anil strangled
io the most brutal manner.
Neighbors were attracted to the
Carlson cottage by the screams of Mrs.
Carlson, who was found tied to her
bed. Sbe declared that her husband
bud gotten out oi bed to investigate a
noise in another room, and shortly
thereafter two men hud entered her
bedroom, and alter robbing her of all
the money in the house, bad bound
and gaggid her. She succeeded in
removing the gag soon alter the alleged robbers departed, she claimed,
and then called for assistance.
Holmes, tbe day after the murder,
told Miss Annie Hoult, Mra. Carlson's
sister, that, "it was a good thing somebody killed that ,   or   I  would
have done it myself."
The World's correspondent writes:—
" Have you not suffered long enough?"
asked William Holme", when Mrs,
Carlson, hearing the blow which killed
her husband, exclaimed: "Oh Will,
why have yi 11 done that ?"
Slowly dripping out her knowledge
i'i her husband's deatb, word ly word,
tie wife of tiie murdered man fastened the imputation of guilt mi the
young fellow who, clearly wrought up
to a pitch of nervous tension, stood in
the prieor.ers'di ck ot lhe grimy and
grim old court bon-e where Nanaimi
bus heard so many tragedies unfolded
Mrs. Carlson's account was the same
as she had at lirst given until she
reached the point wbere she heard a
noise. This time, however, the saiil
the thud which aroused her was in
the bedroom, not out in the kitchen,
where, according to her previous Story
her husband had gone to chase out 11
neighbor's cat, which had wakened
them up.
She jumped to the loot ot the bed,
exclaiming, "Ob, my God."
Tbere was a lorm in the doorway,
and the next thing bIic was stuunid
by a blow over the head lt was when
she regained consciousness that she
»«ked Holmes why he had done it.
She did not sen Carlson's body re
moved Carlson never moved or spoke'
after be was struck.
Holmes Baid he would tie her up
and lake her husband's money. The
fi rmer he did and the. latter she
thought he did.
The DiOft tliiinialic moment of lhe
trial was when Mrs Carlson was askn
to identify tbe prisoner. Both woman
and man were visibly moved.
Mrs Carlson, besides the change in
her story, directly stilting I bat Holmei
was the man who struck Cailson, alsi
testified to lad feeling' existing be-
Iween the men.
Holmes, she said, linil visited till
bouse on Monday morning, the day 1 I
the crime
He asked her bow she was feeling,
She replied not very good, He then
asked ber if Carlson lad been ill-
using her.   Sbe r.'i Iiul "No."
He declared 1 e would  do  for  him,
but she usked him lo lit. him "I i.e.

She did not know who llie "he" was,

MrB. DeCour, a new witness, also
testified to overhearing u quarrel at
lhe time that Holmes boarded witli
Carlson's. The latter told Holmes to
get out ol the house, and threatened
il lie ever came buck lie would shoot
him. Holmes replied tbat be lind

The morning altor the murder
Holmei saw Mrs. Carlson at Burton's
bouse. She saiil it was a bad business
Ho made no remark. Holmes accompanied Miss Hoult down the
street when he lelt. He remarked
that those who bad murdered Carlson
