SUICIDE BY HANGING
Decomposed Body of Jap Found

miles from where the body was found
For some time previous to Dec. 4 of
laat year deceased had been acting in
a crazy fashion. On that date it coin
menced to rain heavily during the
afternoon, the men including Katayama, going into the tents. Afterwards
the deceased went out and not having
returned by night Beared was made lor
him and continued several days. None
of their efforts succeeded and it was not
until Sunday tbat tbe body was discovered, hanging by a twisted ham
mock from a projecting bough, with
the feet almost touching Ibe ground.
Tbe body waB in an advanced (state of
decomposition and parts of tbe lower
limbs had been eaten away by some
animal. There being no suspicious

event an inquest was not considered
necessary.
Great Britain's Surplus
London, May 8.—The Budget was
presented by the Premier, Rigbt Hon
Mr. Asquint to-day instead of by the
Chancellor of the Exchequer. Tbis
departure from precedent is a result ot
recent changes in the Cabinet.

present slackening of trade throughout the world, following the boom
year of 11107, tbe premier announced
tbat Great Britain's realized surplus
for tbe year 1007 has amonnted to
123,630,000 which, he said, would be
largely applied to tbe reduction of tbe
national debt, wbieh bad already been
reduced by approximately 190,000,000
during tbe past year. He estimated
the total expenditure for 1908-0 at
1764,346,000 and tbe revenue on tbe
exiating basis of taxation at $788,850,-
000. Tbe reduction in the sugar
duties will be effective May 18 on raw

day under tbe treaties at tbe V., W. A

COURSIER VS. PETERS
Case of Assault Dismissed by
Magistrate Pinkham.
P. R. Peterson brought an action of
assault against Eric Coursier on
Thursday, claiming that the defendant
bad tethered bis horse to his property
and when in the act of taking the
animal to the pound, was interfered
with by tbe defendant, who caused the
horse to break loose. J. M. Scott
appeared for the defendant, plaintiff
being without counsel.
The plaintiff admitted that the lot
in question had been used by bim and
Mr. Coursier for grszing purposes for
sometime, and there bad never been
any trouble hitherto. His ohief com
plaint waa that the defendant inter
fered witb what he considered his
rigbt on the public highway when
defendant's horse was found in bis
property.
After cross examining the plaintiff,
defendant's counsel pointed out Ibat
be could not legally impound tbe
horse under the circumstances and
anyway the money he endeavored to
obtain from Mr. Coursier was above
tbe pound limit, and showed tbat
there had been no assault whatever.
Magistrate Pinkham dismissed the
case without costs to either side. Mr.
Coursier then entered a charge for
assault against tbe plaintifl',but on advice of the magistrate, wbo said tbat
there had been grounds for provocation, decided to withdraw it.

ROLLER SKATING
Promises to be Popular Pastime in Revelstoke
A large and enthusiastic crowd attended the opening ol the roller skating rink on Wednesday nigbt and
judging by tlie number of people who
ventured on to the wheels and careered round the rink more or less gracefully before an admiring and critical
audience, this new sport promises to
become very popular tbis summer.
The interior of the rink has been
greatly improved, galls) vies being erected down both sides where the spectators «Bii look on without tbe usual
jostling nr squeezing thnt has hitherto
characterized these visits to the building. Tbe surface of the skating arena
is of line clear maple evenly laid and
presents an attractive at pearance.
Provisi.in bus I ten made for tlie skating public for spice where skates can
be put ou and tried before entering
tlie arena, and there is sullicient room
left for the establishment of refresh
nieut booth", scats, etc. Tlie Independent Band provided the music on
Wednesday aud tbe public I ok full
advantage of the free ni^hl, the skating surface being crowded during ilu
whole tinis tbe rink was open. The
management have adopted several
uselul rules to govern the skating, and
tbe skaters must reverse their direction every half hour which will tend
t i lessen tbd wear on skates and floor
and also to improve Ibe style of skating. Mr. McPhail bun guue to considerable expense iu introducing the
roller rink and it is hopid the publio
will give him the support he deserves.
Tho sight on Wednesday wss very
amusing, and while there were some
who cut ss good a figure on rollers as
they do on ice, there were a great
many who would bave made excellent
subjects for the snap shot fiend. Tbe
antics and distortions of some who tt
ordinary times are more or less sedate,
really gives the opinion that we are
young yet and have still a secret
longing.in our hearts for the amusements of our youth. Tho "tolling
home" aspect of some ol tbo sksters
was well portrayed.
The Turban Influx
The Hindus are another olass that
we find huddled in groups in various
camps of the province. They do not
take up land, but work for railroads
and sawmills. They live in box cars
or any shelter that comes handy.
They will not eat meat and have no
respect for Pat Burns, although
around Eholt I have known them to
steal chiokens. The bulk of their
money goes back to Punjaub, in
India, but for Imperial reasons We
bave to tolerate these turbaned sab-
jects of King Edwsrd much the same
aa we bave to occasionally tolerate
bedbugs in a country hotel. Witb
tba country filled with Japs, Chinks,
Hindus, Si washes, Doukhobors, Dunk
ards, Grits and Cheap raised Canadians, Britith Columbia will ere long
resemble tbe Garden of Eden overrun
by swarms ol locusts and tnotquitoes

FOURTH LINE OF DEFENSE
The fourth line of defense against
the advance of business depression,
says the Canadian Trade Review,
is that of agriculture. This is the
only great branch of national enterprise in which production is
being conducted on a scale as large
ii not larger than in previous years.
Although it is a little too early to
speak of thu exact acreage, the
ollicial reports go to show that there
has been ceaseless activity during
tbe past winter in the discussion of
improved methods, of system of
culture, and of various other problems thai make for larger prosperity uf labor .mil capital engaged in
the cultivation of the soil. Aiter a
tear of good prices for farm products uud of liquidation of labor in
hinipiilioiis wbioh compete with
sgri, uliure, farming has more
umlaut capital as well as a more
I liberal labor supply than probably
in any curlier year in tbe current
decade.
The iourlli lino of deffiise is thu
not only well entrenched against
reaction, but will probably be the
lirst to raise the signals for advance. The enlarging purchasing
power of the rural population must
find outlet for its resources in some
direction. Much of it will go back
into the properties they own. Some
of it will be laid away for savings,
but most of it will be turned into
the channels of trade sooner or
later to meet the current needs and
satisfy the enlarging desires of what
proves the most prosperous industry in the Dominion. In due time
manufacturing, transportation and
finance will feel the thrill of rising
life in the blood of the business
community. In due time a new
upward turn must come in general
prosperity. It may be weeks, it
may even be months, before the
turn in the lane is reached, but it
is sure to come unless nature fails
to favor those who serve in her
vineyards.

have and are succeeding and it has
been through continuous effort.
Therefore before condemning advertising give it a fair and reasonable
trial.
PERMANENT PUBLIC  WORKS
We   understand   that   the   city
council have decided that they will
spend practically nothing on street
work thiB year, which owing to the
condition of the treasury  and  the
fact that there is little work  to  do
that ia absolutely  necessary,  is a
very Laudable plan.   There may be
some work of a nature that will be
necessary, and it may be a difficult
matter for the council to  draw the
line and decide what is and is not
necessary.    We do not doubt that
tbe public will be along very shortly
and put it up to   their   respective
aldermen representatives to try and
put forward   some claim  on tbe
public    works    which,    in    their
opinion, must be done _nd  cannot
ref_.onr.lily be refused.   The public,
tickle u it is,  will  ask  for  public
Works to lie carried out aud in tbe
».inie breath rail against the council for spending none*/, Against
thi* sort of ibing the council will

ADVERTISING IX)KS PAY.
Many advertisers have a somewhat mistaken idea of the {unctions of advertising. They consider
that tlie mere purchase of space in
an advertising medium and the
insertiou of an advertisement
should forthwith bring them in a
great deal of business—in fact
enough to justify them in saying
that advertising pays. When
their attempt does not have this
immediate result they at once
come to the conclusion that advertising does not pay. A businessman who runs a trial advertisement in a local medium for a single insertion hopes thereby to get
returns from every reader of the
paper. When only one or two
answer, instead of being gratified
he is disappointed. He forgets the
dozen or so more who noted his ad.
but who by reason of the indolence
of human nature neglected to reply
at once and then gradually forget
about it. There was no second insertion or third to stir him up and
the effect waB lost. From a reader's
standpoint one sees a firm advertising regularly and another spasmodically. What is the natural
conclusion as to the meritH of the
two houses? The reader will unconsciously attribute greater solidity and prngressiveness to the firm
wbo udveriii-t.'s regularly. This is a
psyoologioal fact. It menns that it
pays toudvertise regularly whether
tbe advertises oan traoe direct results or not. The value of an ad
largely depends on tbe copy of
which it is made up. It is for tbe
advertiser himself to make his
Do not be inclined
THE POWER OF THOUGHT.
We Btill Beo around the streets
quite a number of men who are
continually talking dull times.
Some men seem to think that their
heads fulfil the purpose for which a
beneficent providence intended
them when they absorb three'nietils
a day und afford a means of displaying the latest ideas in httis.
Like the dog with the chronic lired
feeling, who used to lean up against
the fence to hark, the process of
thinking is so exhausting that wilh
many it is only indulged in al long
intervals. In politics there ate but
lew men who can give a reason fur
being on one side or the other, beyond echoing the sentiments of
some wily politician or loud
mouthed demagogue. Religious
opinions and convictions in a majority of cases are the absorbed
product of other minds. A good
deal of intellectual swallowing is
done by those who would doubtless
resent the imputation of credulity.
Some who prate about their priest
ridden neighbors are quite as effectually saddled and bridled, if
they only knew it, as those they
pity. This is an age of brilliant
mental effort, but the brilliancy
seems largely borrowed. What we
want is independent individual
thought and less croaking these
times. Let the business men quit
the ruts and cut out thinking paths
fur themselves. An hour of careful
thought and wise planning is worth
1 whole day of plodding aimlessly
and indolently, and burping nn the!
evils of   a  depressed   community.
l'miiler the paths of thy feet  anil

Catching a Runaway
One ol the fiue.t stories in the bis-
ton o( the railways centres round «
runaway engine ou the Stockton and
Darlington line. The engine was observed by tbe drive, ol another and
more powerful one. Sieing lhe fugitive
speeding in the direction of Darlington
be uncoupled bis on 11 engine, crossed
tbe points and set out iu pursuit on
the same line. It was a long chase,
but the pursuer, driven at top spied,
gradually overhauled lho runaway. At
hist it came near enough fur tins driver
to crawl tu tbe front of bis engine and
drop a stout chain over the tender hook
of the other. He returned to his foot-
plute, shut off steam and sciewed down
bis brake. This steadied tlie one in
front and so tetarded its puce that the
driver was able now to creep from bis
own engine on to tbe runaway, put on
the brake, and bring it to a standstill,
almost in tbe crowded Darlington
Station.—London Standard.

There are many local gods on the

mountains that luve parted with

BUILDING A LARGE SAWMILL
Over Quarter Million Being Expended at Shuswap Lake.
Shuswap, May 8.—American capital
now largely controls the lumber in
ditetry of the interior. Millions of
dollars b*ve been invested in plants
and timber limits during the past
three years. Shrewd Yankee operators
anticipate tbat with the removal of
the duty from foreign lumber by the
next congress, British Columbia lumber can be shipped east as far as
Buffalo and Chicago and south to
Kansas City at a handsome profit.
The Adams River Lumber Company,
limited, a corporation whose shareholders are American exclusively, is
erecting a tawmill at the loot ol Shuswap lake, two and a hall milea from
this point. The plant will oost between (260,000 and (350,000, and will
be running full blast about the end of
October next. The equipment trill
comprise two double-cutting band
saws   with   a capacity ol 100.000 feet
SCENE ON  i HE A it HOW LAKES.
Officers and shareholders are: J. P.
McGolilrick, president, Spokane,
Wash.; George A. Lammers, vice-president, Stillwater, Miss ; J. A, Magee,
managing director, Shuswap; P. H.
Oomhie, treasurer, a ,d Walter F.
I.nmmers of Shuswap.
Tho same interests also control tbe
Adams River Improvement Company,
limited, which was organized for the
purpose of making improvements on
tbe bike, Adams river and its tributaries, in order to facilitate lumbering
operations. Over (15,000 has already
been expended. Tbe president of tho
company is A.J. Lammers of Stillwater, Minn., and other officials are
F. H. Sine, Revelstoke, secretary; Otto
Lachmund, Arrowhead, treasurer; and
J. A. Magee, managing director.
At the foot ot Shuswap lake tbe
Chase Lumbei Company baa in operation a plant with a sawing oapaoity
of 25,000 feet daily. In the same locality the Bowman Lumber Company,
one of the big American corporations
operating in tbe interior, has already
secured a site for a proposed mill.

CATERPILLAR RAVAGES
Tent Caterpillars Endanger all
Trees in District.
The people who own orchards and
who do not pay attention to them,
will find themselves heavy losers in
the near future. The provincial pest
destroyers are after them. Inspector
Cunningham stated today that the
department, had issued 30,000 notices.
About $50 a day has been expended fur
some time in an effort to get orchard
owners to take notice. If tbe careless
man only brought Io.b on himself he
might be left to work out bis own
ruin, but the pest infected orchard is
a menace to a very wide area.
The remedy to be applied now in
spraying with arsenate of lead, in tho
proportion ol three pounds to the barrel ol water. This, if properly applied
will surely destroy the caterpillars and
all other leal-eating insects. It bas
the advantage of remaining on the
foilage in all weather.
II we can bave tbe caterpillars destroyed now, we shall have very little
trouble next year.
I would add for the information ol
the public generally, that the fourth
orchard across the inlet at Vancouver,
was condemned for des'ruction this
morning. We menu business now;
no more temporizing and pleading
with people to protect themselves and
the great fruit industry, which is doing
so much for the development ol our
glorious province.
to this if it were put lo  bim   straight
and tactfully.
The trouble with ti gre t many men
in tbe trade is a luck of both business
judgment and tact. It sli mid not be
necessary to offend a customer by exacting terms of settlement which cor
respond wieh th"se which the dealer
himself is compelled to meet when be
purchases his stock; und it can lie done
without offence by tbs exercise of a
little of tbis very tact referred to.
Why should it drive a customer to
the catalogue house—where he will be
compelled to pay cash—and cash in
advance at that, without seeing tbe
artiole until he receives it, probably
several weeks after ordering—when he
can have tbe articles he needs, when
he ueeds it, and alter thorough examination and accompanied with a
guarantee ? It must be a tactless
salesman who would lose a sale to a
catalogue house in such a case, unless
be is willing to admit a discrepancy in
price.
Ol course, this is simply the Journal's opinion, and every reader of this
paper has as got d a right to own
opinion; but the i |.minus voiced
above are held hy many of the most
successful dealers io the trade and are
based on their per.nnal experiences.
Let's havo a full and fn e discussion
on this question, (or it i- nn important
one, both to the retailer and the
jobber. Let everybody write who has
bad any i-xper.ence one way or the
other; only make it brief and to the
point, and give actual (acts.
Methodist District Meeting
The annual district meeting of tbe
Methodist Church, Kamloops district,
beld i's sessions in lhe Methodist
Church in this city on Wednesday
and Thursday ol this week. The district includes a territory stretching
from Golden to Ashcroft westward;
Trout Lake southward, and the Cariboo country to the north ol Ash?rott.
The annual reportB were presented by
the ministers and laymen from the
various fields, among which were many
very encouraging things. All admit
feeling the financial stringency, but
generally Ibe different financial
schemes of the church have lieen well
sustained.
While the Revelstoke church leads
tbe district in many ways, vet the
other fields bave done well. Golden
reports a new parsonage worth $2100,
and Salmon Arm a new church, at the
Station appointment, worth aliout the
same money. Rev. T. W. Hall ia
ohairmau of tbe district; Rev. John
Pye, secretary, '.and Rev T. H. Wright
of Nicola is financial secretary. Rev.
J. W. Dickinsou was elected to represent tbe district, in company with the
chairman, at tbe Conference in Vancouver next week, and C. F. Lindmark
witb four other laymen out of lhe
district will represent that wing of the
Conference.
Ou Wednesday evening Kev. Mr.
Dickinsou gave a very interesting a 1-
dress nn the subject ol Church Union,
showing its advantages, its disadvantage", and the hindrances In its accomplishment. C. B. SUsons led in
the diectisaiou which followed in. which
several took part.
Cash or Its Equivalent
Nuw that tbe Retailers' Association
has teen formed in Reveletoke by tbe
merchants for tbe purpose of protecting themselves in all matters of trade,
the following oisy be of some interest
in view of the establishment of a cash
has.l-
The old question of "cash or credit"
is discussed from time to time, and
there is nearly always some new
thought contained in the arguments
brought :'■.!■• I, ler and against the cash
system of doing business. In some
lines of business it is extremely difficult to operate at retail, strictly upon
a cash ba-is, anil the implement business would naturally be considered one
of these.
Iu discussing this business, tbe Implement Trade Journal takes tbe stand
lhat cash or its equivalent could without ■ !: Iii-u.ty be secured by the implement dealer for all gocda sold, and
ttyt: Tbe Journal recisgnic.es that
circumstances alter cases, but it alto
behoves that the cash basis is the ideal
plan tor the retailer. At has lieen
said bal ire, that does not necessarily
mean tbat no exceptions can be made
in any rase whatever, or that whenever it is possible to get ceah, it is to
the dealer's interest to get it; and if
that is impossible, there should be a
settlement made for the good* when
tbey sre taken from tbe store, so at to
protect the dealer and to enable him,
if he needs the money, to got it, from
the liank. In that case thn dealer
should not im expected lo pay 11 ternst
for the accommodation of the farmer,
as usually the case If the farmer
wants the accommodation and dons
not wish to go to tho bank for it, let
him reimburse the dealer lor the extra
expense hn is put to In carrying him.
If be could not obtain credit at tbe
bank, it, is the part of wisdom for the
dealer tO extend orodlt very cautiously.
Surely no reasonable man would object

Marsupial Pugilist
On board the Aorangi, which arrived
at Vancouver Thursday night from
Sydney, was a kangaroo which stood
the voyage well and was landed in
excellent condition. It is tne proper
ty of Mr. A. Brasher, whose brothers
spent two days trying to capture it.
When it was finally surrounded it put
up a strenuous fight, for it is what is
known as an "old man" kangaroo, and
four dogs were killed before it wae
finally secured. Mr. Brasher is going
to teach the animal to box and wrestle
but finds some difficulty in getting an
instructor for the long-tailed brute.
When it has learned to spar with a
man without killing bim the kangaroo
will be taken on tour as a vaudeville
exhibit and will be open to box a
comers regardless of weight, age or
color. The city of Vancouver is in
negotiation witb the Sydney Zoo lor a
kangaroo and will probably send s
beaver to the Antipodes in exchange
for the Australian animal.
Penalty of Solitude
Vancouver, May 8.—There is something about the wilds of northern
British Columbia which is fatal to the
minds of some men. Whether it is tbe
solitude or some other cause is not
certain, but very few boats Irom the
north arrive bere without having a
passenger on board  a  raving maniac.
When the Cassiar reached port
yesterday morning she hsd two men
on board who were crazy and she also
brought down a dead man.
One of the insane persons had been
nandlogging alone lor six weeks in the
neighborhood of Hoskin's Inlet, but
the monotony was fatal and he became
demented.
While at Knight's Inlet the Cassinr
sighted a lug making signals. She
went alongside snd found that the
skipper hsd become troublesome from
a nervous disease. He was transferred to the Cassiar and locked in the
strong room, but kept tho stewards
busy,
At Rook Bay the Cassiar received
the Irody ol Tom Nolan, aged 60, a
logger wbo died last Wednesday at
one of tbe Fraser river mill campt.
He hid lieen suffering Irom fits.

Dangerous Belting
A German professor has made the
"discovery" that machinery belts
sometimes become so highly charged
with cloctricity that tbey give off
sparks that may ignite a dost laden
atmosphere and cause what are known
as dust explosions. Very lew observing persons employed in shops and
(tctories where hesvy belting is used
have tailed to notice the sparking.
To touch an electrically charged belt
gives very striking evidence of ita
dangerous probability on an explosive
mixture.    '
