Death stalks in the footsteps of the
train robbers now. The corpse of one
lieB in Asbcrofc, killed by au officer of
lhe law iu the execution of bis duty,
and the hangman's rope awaits his
companion who shot special constat,.e
Decker at Ashoroft on Monday evening last. None ol the train robbers
have been captured alive as yet, but
death has sealed the doom ot one and
its shadows hover sround the fugitive
footsteps of the other.
The story of Decker's death is that
of a hero who did not llincb in the
hour of trial, but died bravely executing tbe duty that bad been laid upon
him. it was about 8 o'clock on Monday evening laBt tbat Standing ou the
hank of tbe Thompson river a short
distance above Asbcroft he saw two
men in a buat pull into tbe shore and
(ry to make a landing. Their movements looked suspicious to bim, aud
he called to tbem and told then) to
stand. Immediately one replied, "Take
me il you can," and pulling a reVolver
from beneath bis coat, before
Decker had time to breathe he tired
The cullet struck Decker in the side
and seeing tbe kind ul men be bad to
deal with he promptly raised his rille
and shot the villain through the
throat. He dropped, but bis companion at once raised a shotgun be carried
and lired at Decker witb fatal effect.
Tbe shot tore up his face and he fell
mortally wounded.
Some men standing on tbe bridge
below heard ihe tiring and ruBbed up
to lind tbe body ol Decker and that of
the outlaw lying not (ar apart upon
the river bank, aud in the confusion
of the moment Decker's murderer
escaped. Decker whs taken into Asbcroft, wbere be died at midnight.
Yesterday the news of tbe shooting
got abroad and as a consequence the
country around Ashoroft is up in
arms. Everybody iB on the watch and
it will be little short ol a miracle if the
outlaw should escape. As the most
authentic descriptions obtainable show
tbat three men were engaged iu the
hold-up, it is evident that oue must
bave been separated Irom his companions before the boat reached Ash
crult. It was a report tbat three men
had been seen in a boat at Penny's
that caused Decker to beou the watch. ]
The identity ot the  dead  outlaw  is ]
unknown to anyone around  Ashoroft,
but tbat he must have been oue ol the
train robbers everybody   feels certain.
He bears tbe earmarks  of   the  trade,
aud it is quite  uncertain   tbat  none
but   desperadoes  of   tbe   worst kind
would attempt such murderous acts in
(their endeavors  to escape.    It seems
quite sure from  reasonable deduction!
that the men  who did  the shouting
are the men wanted lor the hold-up.
They were coming down tbe river from I
the direction ol  Kamloops,  tbey  bad |
escaped in a boat, tbey were armed tor
resistauce, and  when  challenged  did
not hesitate to shout.
Nuw tbat ime of tlieir number bas
added to the crime ol robbery that of
murder, efforts to capture him will
no doubt be redoubled. The reward
tbat Decker should have had may go to
another, but his memory will be honored. In the meantime it is evident
that those in pursuit ol bis murderer
bave no light task, for witb the
gallows gaping before bim, be will
naturally be reckless ol how much
blood be may spill hencelorth
The dead robber Iihb been Identified
as |. simbliig the man who ordered
the engineer to stop at Ducks. About
thirty poundB of dynamite was fouud
in the buat out of which the robbers
came. Tbis is thought either to have
been left over from the last attempt
or to bave lieen kepi fur some future

Several Important Matters are
Brought Forward
A deputation from the local Board
ol Trade waited on Premies McBride
and Hon. TbuB. Taylor at lhe Hevel
stoke Hotel on Saturday evening to
press upon them several matters ol
local urgency.
The lirst matter brought forward
was the establishment of a land registry office at Revelstoke. J D. Sib
bald cited many instances of unnecessary delay, which had occurred
through people from the district being
forced tu deal with the Nelson land
registry otlice.
The Premier replied that at present
a great deal uf work was being dune in
the registry ullice at Nelson, but if
there were any ueglect in the matter
uf office work the Government would
give it tlieir immediate attention. If
tbe business of the Revelstuke dislict
warranted the establishment of a
registry office the Government must
carry it into effect. He asked Mr.
Sibbald to write him giving full details of what was needed and he wuuld
do what he could.
Tbe second question asked was as to
to the establishment of a judicial circuit on the nm in Hue with Kevelstoke
as tbe centre. W. M. Lawrence explained what was the matter complained ol bo tar as Kevelstoke was
Tbe Premier said that a change and
readjustment of circuits could only he
brought abuut by act of Parliament.
It would mean a great deal of work
and changing and the department at
Ultima might complain At the same
time if it worked a real hardship and
the Roard could prove its case the
Government might legislate to bring
about the change suggested.
In regard to the request fur a terry
at the conduence ot tlie Canoe and
Columbia rivers, Hon. Mr. Taylor
stated that it was already being installed, and further than lhat. cabins
were being built for the convenience
of travellers between Buat Encampment and Tete Jaune Cache.
Speaking uf the condition of the Big
Bend road Mr. Taylar said the recent
freshets were responsible for the damage that had been done, lt was practically impossible to inainUin the
road in that particular place. It
was practically impossible to maintain
the road in tbat particular place. It
would coat the Government over
$4,000 to keep it there.
Several of the deputation pointed
out tbat tbe present condition of the
road it waa impossible .'or any great
development to take place in tbe Big
Bend country.
"I am well aware of tbe necessity of
access to the Big Bend," said the
premier, "but unless the traffic war
rants it such a large expenditure oannot be made." He added, however,
that be would keep the matter in
mind and do what he could towards
meeting the request of the board.
Hon. Mr. Taylor, questioned as to
tbe expediency ol putting in concrete
instead ol wooden piers lor the uew
traffic bridge over the Columbia, Bald
that personally he had always avored
concrete rather than woodenf piers,
though the contract called for the latter. Tbe government had decided to
put in concrete, but the board ol
trade had asked lor wooden piers
.lather thau wait (or the delay that
must arise (rom change of plau.
The premier Baid that concrete piers
would cost over $17,000, but he hoped
that once the bridge was completed it
would be in Bucb a way that it would
Mayor Lindmark asked if the government could not undertake tbe construction of the road from Kevelstoke
to Mara.
"I don't tbink it necessary at all,"
Baid the premier, "as tbere is no traffic to warrant such a heavy expenditure as lhat would entail." He continued tbat tbey should first get in
the bridge and tbey could then take
time to think about tbe road. He
would back Mr. Taylor in all development work that would aid tbe city,
but be considered this road was unnecessary just now.
Tbe deputation thanked the premier
lur bis kind bearing and retired.

C. N. R. AND (i. T. P.
The report comes frum Ottawa
that the Hon. George P.Graham,
Minister of Railways, has laid over
for further consideration the application of the Cirand Trunk Pacific Railway Company for a charter
to build from the Yellowhead Pass
to Vancouver along almoBt exactly
the same route ns that already
covered by the plans of the Canadian Northern Railway Company
which were approved in February
last. That the minister has good
reason to think seriously before
grunting another application for
the same route no one who understands the situation at all can
doubt. According to the proposals
submitted the two roads would
come down ou either Bide of the
North ThompBon rivur as far as
Kamloops, and from Kamloops to
Vancouver they wuuld take exactly
the same route, though diverging
from the C. P. R. at Lytton and
inking the Bouth side of the FraBer
to New Westminster.
Those whu hnve ridden along the
(.'. P, R. from  Lytton to Yale and
hnve   noticed   the   remains   of  the
old Cariboo  road scoring the face
of the cliff can easily imagine what
n  task   it  would   be to
railway there nnd huw prai ti

Now lhat the city council is
i-triking snags in installing its
sewerage system it might be pertinent to ask whether these things
were ever considered before the
work wns undertaken. If they
were pointed out hy those who prepared the plans, it was a penny-
wise policy to take no action to
obviate them. If they were not
pointed out there must have been
incopetency somewhere. In either
case it is obvious that foresight
would have been better than hindsight, and it is to be hoped that
the authorities will profit by the
lesson in any future work they may

Skeletons Unearthed
Three uld Indian collies were unearthed by some men working in a
brickyard nenr St. Boniface, Man., n
lew years ago. The coffins were rudely
made of poplar boards and fell to
pieces when struck hy the scrapers and
shovels, disclosing tlie skeletons in an
almost perfect state of preservation.
They hud evidently been dressed in
civilised clothing hh fragments of
bragniepts of broadcloth were found
with brass buttons marked "Dominion
of Canada Indians." Neareach skele
tou were cups, spumis and knives, sume
of the cups being filled with hazel
nuts to feed the dead men on their

The premier's speech contained ir
vague hint, bul no certain promise of
a, railway policy which might precipitate an election. In telling how
rapidly the needs of the country had
grown, till the expenditure on public
works reached $8,000,000, he said il
had lieen found necessary to put Ihe
dedartnient of public works under a
separate head.
"Anil, looking round among my colleagues, for a man to Iill that position
I was fortunate indeed in having a
man nf such ability and"sound judgment as your townsman, Mr. Thos.
Taylor." A statement that was greeted
with applause. It. was Mr. Taylor's
lirst appearance in llevelsloke since
his appointment, to the government
and he was well received.
For Ihe most part the evening was a
pleasant social function. The Opera
Housii was well filled, and had been
finely decorated with Hags hung
around the balconies by an energetic
committee. The Independent Band
played in their best, style. Mr. Bruce
Lawson amused with some capital
stories and a recitation of "The One
Hoss Shay." Mr. W, H. Humhreys
sang twice, and, being again encored,
recited "The Owl Critic," with fine
spirit. Mr. Davis, of Kegina, entertained both with pianoforte and song,
and Mr. Albert Annan gave a senti-
uien' il selection iu a rich, clear voice.
M W. W. Foster presided, and, in
open g, explained that it had been
thoui it better to have an informal
meeli ; than one of set speeches, because li a Saturday night in Revelstoke i any people were engaged in
dilferei occupations and tbey wished
to have them free to pass in and out.
Tbey had more than usual pleasure in
welcoming the premier, because not
only had he raised British Columbia
to its present proud position, but they
felt that tbey had in him a personal
friend. During the last session be had
honored this district by calling its
member into the cabinet. They could
therefore feel that he bad a double
claim upon them, and tbey wished to
take this opportunity of thanking him
for the honor he had done the district.
(Applause.) They had also Mr. Taylor
among them in a public capacity for
the lirst time since his appointment.
Various causes had prevented his appearance before, but now that they
had the opportunity they felt that he
should he honored in a public rather
than a private capacity, because chey
must remember that when Mr. Taylor
last came before the electors he was
elected not by the efforts of Conservatives alone, but by Conservatives
and Liberals alike throughot the riding.
Hon. Mr. Taylor said it was a great
pleasure to him to have this opportunity of publicly meeting and thanking his constituents for the honor they
had done him in February last by
returning bim by such a handsome
majority. They had, however, with
them lhe Premier of the province, and
as tbey were no doubt anxious to hear
him, he would not detain them at
great length. He would only make a
few remarks as to the tour they had
iusl taken. Since accepting the position of first minister of the Crown
the premier had believed that in order
to become properly acquainted with
the needs of the province il was of
imperative importance that he should
visit the different portions. He had
done this annually since 1908, and he
(Mr. Taylor) was glad on this occosion
that the premier had invited him to
come with him because as bead of the
great spending department of the
Government he felt it imperative that
he should become acquainted withal
Hist hand witb lhe wants of different
districts. They had now covered a
great deal of lhe province and il wis
his intention if Ills health permitted
to see all the districts before the season
was uver,
Ile then descrilied in detail the visit,
and told lhe same story of prosperity
everywhere. At Qrand Forks they
had seen the Granby smeller wilh ils
capacity nt 1,000 Ions daily, and the
manager   had   told   Ihem   tbat   when
present plans were completed it would
he the largest smelter on the continent. Such signs as these were most
"It is my duly," said the minister of
public works, "by all means in my
power to aid In every way the settlement of tho province, and with this
object iu view I have endeavored
In whatever dlstriot I have been lo
push forward the construction of
roads, trails "aml bridges, With an
expend!! ure of $8,000,000 In my charge
I fell that I should become conversant
with the needs of Ihe country. When
I tell ynu thai our expenditure on
public works Ihis year is equal to that
of the past three years  put  together;
when I tell you that iu this department we are spending more
I hail Ihe whole province of Ontario,
you will  see  we   are  endeavoring  to
look  after  the  Interests of   British
Columbia as far DS public works are
concerned at all events. (Applause).
I can go Iiiil her and point out. to you
lhat Ihe revonue of B. C. is gradually
crawling lip. When you consider lhat
the revenue of the province amounts
in su mm,nmi and lhat of Ontario
amounts to fl llttlo over $8,000,000, and
contract, lho scattered population of
this country wilh thai ol Ontario ymi
must admit thai B. C. is making
great, strides.
Take our ililTirent Industries, A
few years ago the total nerciu'ii in fruit
lands was only a little nver 7,001) acres;
to-day tho friut acreage of B.C. exceeds
100,000acres.    In  ordei   to encourage
settlement we ore al the present time
expending a great deal on surveys.
This year we are spending no less than
$200,000 for the purpose Of locating
lauds and acquiring knowledge to
place before Incoming settlers, so you
will see that we are doing our part."
Turning lo ihe lumbering Industry
he pointed out that while In lorn the
otal oiitpul of the  mills was ubotii
Ol.OOO.IHM) feet, this year he was *afe in
saying it wns at least ten times that
amount. The total output of the lode
mines from 187H to 1K8S was less than
$200,000, Inu lust vear alone it was no
less than $21,000,000. All this development in the past was encouraging, tint
il was nothing to what was coming.
Withanolher transcontinental railway
building to the Pacilic Coast, and with
another and perhaps still anolher to
follow that, they must expect great
results lium the opening of the country to tlie north. The shipment of
Alberta wheat hy the Pacific route
meant tilings untold for our ports.
We had iron, steel, coal and timber in
abundance and he looked forward to
the day when we should make our
own locomotive and steel and ships
from our own resources.
Fortunately the Governmenl was in
a position to meet with this development. They had the confidence of the
people and of the financial institutions
of the world. Fruit from Kootenay
bad taken first rank among the exhibitions of Ihe wi uld, and in a few years
he expected lo see llie whole country
to the soulh from Kevelstoke to Nelson
an orchard country.
"We are not, however, confiuen lo
agriculture or horticulture alone. We
have other great Industries and have
the oapital coming to develop them,
and whatever the past may have been
we have every reason in the near
future to look forward to most prosperous times in British Columbia."
Premier McBride said it was with
peculiar pleasure that he came there,
because though they had had some
bitter conflicts in the past, and he had
taken some part in the various campaigns, he had never left Revelstuke
without feeling lhal he had as a pes-
sonal friend everyone in the city.
"It is a good thing when we can hold
elections without disturbing social
relations, and what I say for myself 1
can say also for my old friend Tom
Taylor. I think his popularity here
and through the country is due to the
fact that be can carry on his elections
without unfair or disturbing tactics.
I am glad to be among you with him
as ihe first mini 'ter to hold the portfolio of public woi'Ks in ihis iiiuntry.
Mr. Taylor has now been in otlice for
six months and everyone will tell you
that he has made good. (Applause. I
Vou have only lo look around you to
BB3 thai public works have been progressing more rapidly than ever before.
Of course The Observer has criticised
Mr. Taylor, but we know that in that
there is nothing serious. We know
that for political reasons they feel that
it is tlieir duty to find fault, but I
think it would he more fair of that
paper if, instead of abuse, tbey would
give praise to Mr. Taylor for lhe good
work he has dons."
Speaking of tbe Revelstoke district
the premier said the valley possessed a
rich soil and was at the gateway of a
great arterial waterway which must.
prove invBluable for traffic. The one
thing needed to complement all these
was more population. Statistics showed that we were spending annually
thousands to bring in farm produce.
It was difficult lo believe that in this
rich country you could find in the
stores in Kootenay potatoes from
Prince Edward Island, butter from
New Zealand, and eggs imported from
eastern Canada, while all the time
right here in this section was an ideal
country where the pursuits of agriculture, horticulture and stock raising
might he carried on with most profitable results. That complement of
population they needed had been well
pioneered by the class of people they
had in Revelstoke and Kootenay now,
"We need population and we are
going to have it," said the premier.
"I think there can be no question of
that. From the transportation companies I am advised that we shall, in
the next few months, see a How of
population into H. C. far greater than
any we have experienced in days gone
by, I Know from our information
bureau that thousands who looked
elsewhere once are looking to B. C. today."
Tbe premier continued that he believed that the country had lieen retarded in the pasl by unstable political
conditions, but a great Improvement
hal been wiougt within the pasl six
years, so thai lhe financial standing of
the province today could be placid side
by side with that of the Imperial Government itself. In 1908 the papers
were filled with notices of tax sales:
today these lands that could not he
given away a few years ago were selling for hundreds of dollars an acre.
The expansion nf the Iruit industry
whereby thousands of acres were
turned under the plow and planted
witli trees was due ill no small manner
tn the campaign of advertising and
exhibits tbat had lieen carried on in
the Old Country and Eastern Canada.
Mr.  Palmer,   while   in  charge  of  tlie
exhibit in Great Britain, bad distributed literature and given Information, and, when tlie exhibits were
closed Iir sold lhe fruit by public auction and secured sufficient meney to
pay llie whole expense of the work,
I Applause.)
.Speaking of the rapid expansion of
the timber industry, he said that
Where six years ago no one though of
investing in timber lands; today good,
sound timber any where was regarded
as a splendid Held of Investment. This
was due to the fact that the policy of
tlie governmenl gave to the timber
holders sound and reasonable titles.
They had also built up the saw milling
industry by an export duty on logs,
which in tlie past used to he taken
down to Puget Sound to Im* sawn into
timber. As a result of the government's export tax this had all been
stopped and a development of I'm per
cent, in tlie sawmill business brought
aliout within tlie p.i-st live years.
"Here we   are   ill   the third vein of
mir second term," Bald the premier,
"Some of ihe liberal papers are great
ly concerned because Mr. Taylor and I
have been louring the country and I
notice one Liberal member says that a
general election Is In sight. For my
pait. I have made these tours annually
for the past six years that I might
keen in touch with lhe development
of tue country, Mr. Taylor also in
order to give   the country satisfactory
admlnstratlon felt that he should visit
tho country and see ibe public works
so that he might have tome knowledge
iit first band, But knowing this is the
third year of om term, our Liberal
friends are very much concerned about
an election,   Weil if it  was proposed
to bring an election on I can assure
Ihem tiial they would have ample
lime In get ready their defences and
prepare for action. I would like to
lell the electors here that in a new
country like one where new ipiestions
which involve far  reaching results arc
bring constantly brought to light, to
keep close to our constitution and
carry out old time usages it would lie
unwise for any administration to continue   in   office   and enact   legislation
the composition  of which  hod never
been   passed u|«jii by the electors.     I
don t say that the~e questions have
eiisen or will arise te-fore the end of
tlie present lei in, hut if it should aiise,
on the question of a railway policy for
Instance, it would be ihe duty of the
Government to go to the people anil
get a pronouncement befme ligisluing
on these lines. I have no announe-
inent to make on this question tonight
but if I can judge from what I have
seen whenever another election comes
there will be no doubt of the result,
i That result was foreshadowed here in
i Kootenay in tlie Dominion elections
when you gave Mr. Goodeve and Mr.
Burrill such handsome majorities. II
showed clearly that you put country
j before party and that' is eqactly what
you would do if a provincial election
come along at the present ' time."
1 Applause. I
Tlie premier concluded with a warm
eulogy on Hon. T. Taylor, who, before
becoming a cabinet minister, had been
ihe party whip through many a trying
" He has been known for 21 years
past as a man who enjoys lhe confidence of fus own town and district,
and tlie man of that kind must lie the
right kind of timber out of which to
construct a stable government. H"
has $3,000,000 to spend this year, and
in tile expenditure of that money you
will find in him tbe same honest dealing as has invariably characterized
Iiini in the past in dealing with tbe
people of Revelstoke and lhe Kootenay country."
At the conclusion of the premier's
speech three rousing cheers with a
"tiger" added, were given both for
him and Hon. Mr. Taylor, after which
tbe platform formalism of the meeting
dissolved; it melted into a social atmosphere of tobacco smoke, coffee and
conversation in which the premier and
lhe minister of public works renewed
nlit acquaintances and left evcryoue
with a klndlv and sociable memory of
their visit.
Progress of Mining
The annual report of the Minister
ol Mines, which is just to band, states
that the value ol the mineral products
ol tLe Province lor the year 1908
amuuutB to $23,851,277, which, while
it is less than tbst of 1907 and 1906, is
Btill considerably greater than that ol
any previous year. The tonnage ol
ore mined in 1908 was the largest ever
produced by the Province, and the
average assay of the ore also slightly
greater than tbat of 1907, but the
average market value ot the various
metals for tbe year was much lower,
which accountB entirely for the decreased value ol thiB year's output;
since the drop in the market price ol
metals amouDts to some $3,966,826.
The tonnage of ore mined in the
Province during the year 1908, exclusive of coal, was 2,083,606 tons, an
increase over the proceeding year of
279,492 tons, or 15 5 per cent. Thia
total tonnage was product d by tbe
various districts in the following proportions. Hounds ry, 71.6 percentage
ol total: Rossland, 14.5 per cent.; Fort
Steele, 7.9 per cent ; Coast District,
1.7 per cent ; all other districts, 4 3
percent. The number ol mines from
which shipments were made in 1908
was 108, and of these only 59 shipped
more than 100 tons each during the
year, while but 33 ihidped in excess ol
1,000 tons, and ol these 8 were in tbe
Boundary district, 6 in Nelson Mining
Division, 8 in Slocan District, 4 in
Coast District, 3 in Rosaland, 3 in Fort
Steele, Mining Division, and one in
Trout Lake Mining Division.
The special report of Mr. B. Gordon,
Gold Commissioner for tbe Revelstoke
and Lardeau Mining Divisions, which
ie appended, states tbere has been
somewhat ol a lull in mining operations in these districts during the
year, though considerable work has
been done on tbe placer claims in tbe
Big Bend district on French, McCullough, Smith and Camp Creeks
wbere Irom 25 to 30 men have been
employed. Tbe yield in gold was not
large, McCullough Creek making by
far tbe best showing. Several of tbe
older companies have been reorganized and there are indications of a
more systematic attempt to work the
Wbile in the southern portion of
the Big Bend country some development work has been done, the mines
bave remained unproductive, but the
owners of claims on Carnes and
Downie creeks are very hopeful ol
being able to induce capital to come iu
and develop Borne ol the best showings.
He submits annual reports of the
Kevelstoke and Camborne mining
recorders which bear out his statements
W. E. McLauchlin, recorder lur the
Kevelstoke division, reports that a
strong company bas been formed to
work mica claims on End Creek, in
tbe Big Bend district.
B. E. Drew, recorder lor tbe Lardeau
division, BayBi
Throughout this Division very little
work outside ol assessment has been
done this year, It iB believed, bow-
ever, that 1909 will see a great improvement in mining conditions in
Camborne camp, since, from reports
received, the greater number of tbe
mines which have beeu inactive during
the pan years will again be in operation just aa sinin as favorable weather
conditions will permit, and I have
on good authority that the necessary
capital is now available to install the
necessary additional machinery, without which, iu the past, it has been
aim.^t impossible to more than covei
expenses. This remark does not apply
to the Evii Cold Mines, Ltd., which
Iisb already been an exception and bas
more than made expenses.
