Cariboo Stage Robbery
Inspector Mcllulh-u, of Victoria, and
Constable Fernie, uf Kamloops, who
have beeu investigating the recent
mail stago robbery in Cariboo believe
that in Clark, who is a brother of Mrs
Render, Iuto ol* the ISO-Mile house they
huve secured one of the culprits of
tin- hold-up.
A charge of perjury wus laid against
him, as ho swore thut he hud not beeu
nwny from the 158-Milo house for
three days, and the Crown secured a
witness who testified that only a few
hours before, at I., J. Crosiuu's at
the loJJ-Mile llouse, after the robbery,
Clark had eaten a meal. Chief Constable Burr is looking after all the
evidence in connection with lhe robbery.
Superintendent of Police llussey has
under consideration a plan whereby a
patrol constable will always accompany the mail stage botweeu Ashcroft
ami Barkerville. This constable will
also have charge of all prisouers
brought down the road to serve timo
in any of the different gaols.
Mrs. Keider, of the Mountain Uouse,
was also placed under arrest as
the police believe hor to be implicated
in the crime.
The police arc also in possession of
information which iucriminates othor
Occupants of the Mountain House ami
further arrests may In- effected at any
'lhe investigations prove that the
robbery was a carefully planned crime
ami wore it not for those clues which
the police wore able tu bring to light
at the M-eiie uf the hold-up great difficulty would be found in bringing the
robbers to justice.
No tracks could be discerned in the
police or  the   Indian  tracker-   ai      the
scene of the robbery ami it was evident that the robbers had covered
their feel with .-.acks or something
similar aud hud walked for some distance lo their hordes.

lool. Dr. ,1. G. .Stewart, a veterinary
surgeon, of IB2 Simcoe street, had tha
wildest  tune of hi* life lim night.
Aboul ten o'olook at night a jninll
buy came to his house and snid to
him lii'il he H',15 wanted to so" n pick
horse at lhe Repository at Nelson and
Simcoe streets. He wont and things
When J got thnn- lo see Ilio nniuial
it was lietl to « hitching post, and
pawing iis front foot in the oir and
made desperate elforts to gel al mo.
1 kept away ami told tho others to
be oureful us the horse was mud. It
hnd phrenitii or inllninmation of the
brain nnd the only thing to do was
to kill it.
They gave tun a polo axe and I was
waiting for n good chance to givo tho
aiiimnl u good tap in lho righl place.
1 could get no one to got anywhere
ueur it aud so whon I did make a
swing at it tho horse, which was renr-
ing nil tho lime, moved its bead end
I struck it in tho wrong place,
11ml lu run for his Life,
The animal went to its knyes. IS lieu
ii got up again ii mado a furious
plunge, tore the tie posl out of the
ground and made for mo, 1 run ns
hunt us 1 could with the animal right
ut iny heels. I yelled Iu 11 young fellow who wus standing near to run for
his   life.
Upstairs 1 wont and the animal right
after mo. The watchman, who hud
wanlod to let tho animal go loose on
the streets when he found it wns mad,
had goi up ahead of mo ami when I
wont to go up to tile lii-vl slorey ho
hud the door locked against mo. I
lushed with the young fellow into 11
wash room and bunged  the door.
Thut horse followed us lo the door
and evidently iniulo up ils mind il was
going to got us. lt proceeded to
smash everything in sight, li couldn't
open th" door s,_, it tt-ietl lo broak

I got out of tlie place itliend of ii
mul we slammed the door. After
pounding away fur a lime with it-
t'oei we opened the door. The beast
turned but bci-uuic tangled up some
lion and fell to ii- knees. Then I
sw uiig  the axe nnd killed  it,

Mr. Horn.".. Mini' iug. •.!' Kevelstoke, i
Rritish Culiiiiil.il delegate to the.
Alberta Convention lust year, in a
happy in.'inn.T. began nn exceedingly
interesting address. Speaking of the
Alberts Board, he snid it wns their
year and yet without encouragement |
from the Alberta Government, " If
then- ivu-Vine time," h" suid "when I
felt, |ii'ond*'li:il our Government was1
in sympathy witb our cause, it was to
Hnd how little Alberta had gained and
Hie grett tiling oue Government bud
granted us- I wae sti uck among other
things with ihe numerous members
who were there. At Edmonton there
were oyer luO delegates. In Alberta
they have a school section in every i
five miles of the district, and in each
they huve three trustees, wbile here
there are only five trustees represent-j
ing us many as lilteen section-, so il is
not lack ol enthusiasm, but lhe difference in systems. I bud tho Idea that
we bad the greatest ndvuneeuipnt in
schools in British Columbia of any |
place iu the Dominion, and we have
advanced in comparison witb those in
the Bast, but we have got tn take our
hats off to the Alberta schools. I was
astounded to find such grand schools
and equipment and accommodation |
for tin- teachers in Edmonton In
one school there is what Is called the
teachers' parlor. Eaoh teacher has
a private room oil tbe school room;
they also have their own clunk room
and place of meeting—everything
perfect. We have gut tu get the
people educated to the fact that although education is somewhat expensive they are getting their money
ret ii rued to th"in tenfold. The entire
taxation Hi" average man pavs tu the
Stale is not us much us for music
lessons nl.me in a family where two
children are taking lessons.
Ill Alberta some uf the ablest men en
the Board are clergymen—in direct
contrast to uur Province they are not
allowed on the Board."
Mr Manning touched upon recreation rooms in  the  Kilinnn'on school
up in one room a party of girls, une
of the numhei playlug the piano nnd
tbe others dancing, while in another
room the hoys had all manner of
athletic appliances.
The discipline in the schools was
exceptionally good. Tbey also had a

"I do know that ■'* «reat number

opposing the McBrido railway policy,
which threatens disaster to this provinco und which totally disregards the
interests of the Kootenays. J and
ninny of my labor friends are Btrongly
opposed to a policy which will result
in booming Vancouver at tho expense
of tho interior."
The Columbian says: • The Canadian
Northern railway, a third transcontinental, to the coast within four yours;
the Similkameen and Boundary s,','*
tions of the provinco brought iulo
closer communication with the Coast
cities; the country to the south of tlio

to the status of tho lirst terminal
port of railway system whose ramifications cover the country that is British Columbia's' natural and profitable market and whose trallic connections extend to far oaBteru Canada
and American centres of trade and
commerce—such will In- the outcome of
tbe sweeping victory for the McBride
governmenl at the polls.
At   last   week's dinner of  the Liberal
Colonial   Club in   London,   Joe   Martin
let out In     pungent,    biting sentences
against      tho  Cauadiau   government's
naval   policy.   Ho ridiculed  what      lie
called the  'tin pot   navy,'   which could
be no      possible     help  to  Kngland in
| timo    of peril and     would only make
; Canada tho     laughing     stock of   tho
world, and serve to fill tho pockets ot
certain candidates with ill-gotten gains
ttt lho public   expense.    "Kor eighteen
years,/  ho said,  "we had  to lighl the
graft of the     Tory    party in Canada.
; Now      we      must   turn  round   on   our
[friends and tight il in the Liberal party."
Kamloops    Standard:—"Thai the Mc-
I Bride Railway 1'olicy is one of great
benefit   to  the country and one      that
; spells prosperity lo the loyal residents
of this province was evinced in nu

' L. Borden was defeated, by arranging
for his election for Carlton by acclamation, Premier McBride resigning
Vale, and allowing John Oliver, leader of the Opposition, to be elected for

The Ashcroft Journal -ays:- " The

aside the doubting Thomases and pessimists with their thin cobweb criticisms—and making room for a healthy
forward Ktride having for its goal ihe
opening up of all our natural re
sources in the timber, coal and mineral wealth and laying tho foundation
of homes and employment for three tc
hair millions of people."
Mr. Johu Oliver, leader of the Libo

The Toronto Telegram says; "If

Popo Pius has declared war on the

Victoria Times: -"The result of the
elections held yesterday was surpris ■
ing, noi to say startliug. The most
sanguine Liberal in the province hardly expected, after summing up the situation in hia mind, to carr) a majority of the constituencies Neither did
he  anticipate  such   a   veritable      I rt rn I-
tdido. The sweeping victory, in our
opinion, mny be aacrlbod to four
primal causes: The thorough di ior •
gunUation of the Liberal party, the
change    of   leadership of the Liberal
purty just on tin- ovo of an oleotioi
the superb organization of lho Ct
servative party, nud the railway poi*
icy brought  down by   tho  Premier."
Victoria   Tost:—"In   all   the  elements
which justify the title, tho success of
tho McBride administration at the
polls yesterday was "a famous v
tory." The most, pronounced feature
wus itH thoroughness. At the com*
ineiieeinent of the campaign the Post

there is something in thi- but, in view
of the importance of the policy on
which the election turned, it is impossible to have a too emphatic and
thorough endorsement.'1
Armstrong Advertiser: -A pCOgl'OS -
aiVO railway policy with a record of
good government behind it has swepi
the province, Premier McBride has received an overwhelming endorsement,
It iH not our policy lo crow or make
too great a noise ovor the magnili -

province to the east did. The defeat
Lof Mr. Oliver was not unexpected; pou*
ilbly a seat may yot be found for
him.   Tho Premier's majority is a huge
'lie. and may be considered too large
though with his past record there will
be uo danger whatever of his not doing his duty by tho province.

Duncan Marshall, editor of the Olds
Gazette and the uew minister of agriculture, replacing W. IL Finlay, of
Medicine* Hut, was re-elected Wodnoa-
day by over BOO majority over A. M.
Welch, Socialist.
The Vancouver correspondent of the
Free Press says:
"There is a rumor lo-niglit that
Premier McBride, being elected in two
places, will ask hia constituents of
Vale lu allow John Oliver, the leader
of the Liberals, to lake that seat.
Though Oliver announced today that
he has retired from politics fur good,
it is likely hu would readily agree to
sit in Vale. The Conservative leaders
here declure that Oliver fought a
square light, abstaining from personalities. Oliver is an experienced legislator too, and many Conservatives
Openly declare that tlio House would
be all the belter for his assistance.
Without Oliver the Opposition would
be a joke, and it would require hard
work in the House to prevent tho pio-
readings   approaching   the   ridiculous."

and i'iimmoditio as are the necessaries of the agricultural classes."
Before 1'arliauieni met the Western
Conservative members of parliament
were busily engaged in rebelling
against Mr. Borden in the columns of
the eastern press. When the Huii*e
opened and tho western M. P's reached Ottawa, it became evident tinu
their revolt was entirely confined to
the Liberal press, says the Indian
Head Videtto, and ihere was absolutely no question about their loyalty
to Mr. Borden and to tiie Conservative party. The lirst thing that the
party did on reassembling was lo hold
a caucus and the first thing that the
caucus did was to cheer Mr. Borden
to the echo, the shouts resounding in
tho corridors outside the room where
the guthcring wae held.

It in calculated that over 50 p.c. of
tbi. rows in B. I', arc more or lens effected with Tuberculosis, and a family
which is now in town lost one of th*jr
children through milk from a cow
affected with tuberculosis. But perhaps the worst leature of these germe
is tbat thev remain in tho human system for al leasl 1.1 years and then, under favorable circumstances, develop
disease and death.
Our cows are all certified to be free

A STRONG FI.OT'R can nn:..-
be made from strong vv heal.
Manitoba hard wheat is acknowledged the strongest in the world—
and that is the kind used for
Purity Flour.
But that's not all. Every grain
of this wheat contains both high-
grade and low-grade i ropertics.
In separating the high-grade parts
from the low-grude the Western
Cnuiula Flour Mills put the hard
wheat through a process bo exacting
that not a single low-grade part
has the remotest chance of getting
in with the high-grade.
of course this special process is
mote expensive lo operate but it
means a lot to Purity flour users—
Unit's why we use it.
Il means that Purity Flour is
made entirely of the highest-grade
flour parts of the strongest wheat
in the world.
It means a high-class, strong flour
and therefore yields "more bread
aud better bread."
Purity may cor.t a little more
than some ('ours, but results prove
it the cheapest and most economical after all.
