Stout, Wanted for the Killing of
Robt. Williams, is Cornered
Alter Long Chase—Resists
Arrest and is Shot.
Kamloops, Nov. 16.—Last evening,
jiiBt about dark, the man known as
Stout, wanted for the killing ol ltobert
Williams at Little Fort, on Tuesday
lit!, inat, wiib shot and killed near
HcL"..n's ranch on tbe west side of
the North Thompson, about 20 miles
from Kamloops.
Alter killing Williams, who attempted to atop bin. from crossing the
river at Little Fort, in a fracas in
which b lh men had drawn revolvers,
Stout took tu tbe bills with a posse at
his heels. Stout came down the river
to Dunn Lake and stole a canoe. An
Indian woman saw the cnnoe with its
solitary occupant gliding down stream
and information was gi"en to Constable Fernie Mr. Fernie came here
and started up the river again, this
time a close hunt being made on both
sides of the river. Last night Stout
was seen by tbe party on tho west side,
on the wagon road. By making a
detour they managed to surround him
and closing in, he demanded of them,
"What the H— do you fellows want?"
When told they wanted him, he Baid
be bad been working in a logging
camp, whereupon be was told tbey
would take hini along anyhow. D.
Conl.m asked him il be had any arms
and Stout gave up a 32 rifle in a case.
Asked if be bad not something more,
Stout quickly drew a revolver and fired
point blank at Gordon The bullet
missed its mark, but Gordon's cheek
was powder burnt, bo near was the
call. Gordon staggered back and
Cha.ies McLean, another of tho party,
thinking the former had been shot,
fired bis rille at close range. The
bullet penetrated Stout's neck and be
lell dead at their Ieet. Word was at
once brought into Kamloops by McLean, snd s coroner's inquest will be
held on Sunday.
While answering the description
given of him in many reBpects Stout
had changed his appearance to a considerable degree. He had removed
beard and moustache He had discarded his heivy laced boots lor moccasins, but there was no mistaking the
physical characteristics that made him
a marked man. In his possession
.verelounl articles that it is strongly
suspected are the property of some
prospectors who went into Blue river
district some time recently. Word
has been sent to Little Fort and witnesses to identity the body will be
brought down.
Interesting Meeting- Popular
The first of the regular monthly
meetings ol the Kevelstoke Liberal
Association was held on Thursduy,
with a large and enthusiastic attendance, President C, K, Maedonald
took the chair. After general business
was discussed several speeches were
made on popular topics ol the day.
The Kev. J. II. KobertBiio gave an
interesting and forcible address on the
History of Liberalism throughout lhe
world and the reforms associated with
it. E. A. Haggen dilated on the
Asiatic question, bringing out Btrong
arguments for exclusion of Asiatic
labor. W. I. Briggs delivered an excellent address touching on the Liberal cot. ven tion at Vancouver and the
need of strong co-operation and unity
iu tbe Liberal party. \V. B. Kobert'
eon pointed out a fow facts in connection with the finances of the association. It was decided to hold the
general annual meeting ol the Association in December.
Verdict of Guilty of Intent to
WixxiPEti, Man, Nov. 15.—''Guilty
of tl.e lirst 1 ffonce, and so say
we all," was the portentous v- .'diet
of the petit jury on Saturday last,
alter just ten minutes deliberation in
the Qnigley case. "Seven years hard
labor," wss the shortly alter decision
of Judge Perdue.
The charge wns thit of having attempted to murder Dr. Clyn Smith,
an American citizen travelling f
pleasure and to recruit his health.
The prisoner struck up a friendship
with the doctor, went out and about
with him, and finally enticed him for
a drive on a lonely road at du-k, and
deliberately attempted, as he admitted,
to shoot with a view to maining him
The story told by "(lie prisoner was
one of the most remarkable that has
appeared in the annuls of crime. He
sought to make the jury believe that
he was so ihocked by the conversation
ol the man upon whom he forced him-
•>elt, that, like a knight errant of old,
he sought to take his lile to protect
the worjd of young and innocent women frcm his wiles. The prisoner appeared to bave known that the doctor
waB pn.sessed ol a considerable sum ol
money, a diamond ring of value, a
splendid gold watch, snd other valuable effects. Throughout the long trial
the prisoner preserved a calm and unmoved demeanor.
Dr. Smith is a shareholder in the

Ottawa, Nov. IB.—The post, .dice
dep.1rt1.1ent gives out tho following:
Although the usual official notification
was given of the fact that the unit of
weight under tbe inter-imperial postage scheme, was raised from J ounce
to 1 ounce, there is some reason to
believe that thc public has not shown
due appreciation ol the fact. The
public should understand that, whereas, since Christmas, 1898, they bave
been able to serd letters to Great
Britain and all parts of the British
Empire Ior two cents one-hall ounce,
they can now send a letter neighing
up to one ounce Ior two oents. It is
a great boon, as it is no longer necessary to employ very thin paper to send
a letter ol moderate length to Great
Britain or one ol the colonies for two
cents, and it brings the standaid
weight into conformity with that in
uso for domestic correspondence.

by the building code commission.
These provide that alter January 1st

SATURDAY, NOV. 16, 1907
Much 00111u1e.it has been aroused ol
late by the fact that there seems very
little liklihood of a regular monthly
mail service being kept up during the
winter into the Big Bend country, and
it is significant that only two tenders
have been received for this contract,
These tenders have beeu refused by the
government postal authorities who
have relused to pay more than *f50 lor
the round trip. When it is remembered tbat there are a large number ot
men employed in the Bend even in
the winter, who can keep in touch
with the outside world by mail ouly,
and who probably look lorward far
more eagerly to their monthly mail
than we do to our daily, it is by no
means right and just that we should
allow these men who are working for
tbe development of the country to go
neglected through the long winter
months, and keep them ignorant of all
civilized news, let alone their own
per-una; interests. A monthly mail
service should be organised at all costs,
all the year round, else men will not
be got to wurk in that district at all.
Moreover, tbe trip iB an extremely
hazmioiii and dangerous one and the
mail carrier who taket perhaps 75
pounds of mail in his pack bus bis lile
in hi! hand= the entire route. Seventy-
rive dollars ia little enough for the
risk and the government could well
afford to sustain this, when tbey remember that many ulher sections ure
better assisted, where the danger iB
less and tl.e needs are far less, We
are pleased to !ee thst the Board of
Trade have acted in this matter and it
is to lie hoped that such a deserving
section of tbe country a tbe Big Bend
will not be allowed to sutler on this
icore ior lack of assistance in this
Apropos..( tbe Speeches made by 0.
1). Rat.kes, Secretary ol the Arm-
strung Farmers' Exchange, recently
at Vernon, in regards lo the union ol
all exchange! in the interior, it ii interesting 10 note that be 10 forcibly
decries tbe Fruit and Produce Exchange of B. C. as being useless for all
practical purposes as regards tl.e
Okanagan, and makes -ptcial mention
of tbe fact that a mistake has been
made In selecting Revelstoke as a
headquarters, as not being in
any way 11 central or distributing
centre To any one who ii acquainted with commercial lile it will easily
be leen that few cities bave letter
claims to being a centre than Revelstoke and a look at the map will show
this. No other point, either in the
Kouttnays or In the Okan.igan can
claim a bitter position geographically
than Kevelstoke which is in touch
with all parts of the province. East

The money stringency now exercising the minds ol the whole of the
Nortli American oou'inont, and particularly Canada, has been accounted
lor In many ways, Wc would add
still another suggestion, nnd not un
unlikely one, us lo tlm tightness of
money. It is generally admitted that
within tho last few years Canada has
ninde cnorniouB strides in development
and her prosperity has been the recognized tlienie ol the worhl. Canadian
commerce Iiiib increased and industries
have started up and nourished, while
thcpopiilutiou bus almost doubled. As
commerce expands so must tbe means
ol carrying on that expansion, whioh
is nothing more or lesB thun money,
actual c.ish.
While expiiii8ii.il has been general
tbe circulation ol money litis never
been increased, consequently as years
go on the money now in currency lias
become inadequate to maintain tl.o
increase of commerce, and by circulation from one quarter to another to
help up a balance. Many yearB ngo a
Dominion Act was pi.ssed authorizing
the circulation of $30,000,000 of which
1.5 per cent, wiib to be in Bpecie and 10
percent, iu securities guaranteed by
tbe Imperial Government. Anything
above that was to be in actual specie,
in lull value, dollar lor dollar. 'J hat
act l.as never been altered, consequently the currency Iiob never increased in proportion to the expansion of commerce und population, and
until tbe act is an.e.ided authorizing
the putting into circulation ol more
currency there will never be enough
actual money to go round or be available for new enterprises and developmental schemes. lt seems only
natural that us Canada advances, she
must have moro money to work with
and her marvellous growth will well
warrant the increased coinage.
Among the many suggestions thus
put forth for the cause of a finanoial
stringency, this above mentioned
should certainly be considered, for
Canada can never prosper and expand
nithout the equivalent in currency to
carry it on.

Caused by Over-Confidence of
It is certain, we are told by the
that the crowding of cars on the Ar- jScienlilie American that the great
bead branch had been effectively Quebec bridge which collapsed on
Aug. 2'J, owed its insufficient strength
to the too great contiilei.ee of tbe
engineers in their theoretical calculations. The bridge lell becuuse of the
buckling of tne bottom chords, and
investigation lias proved, we are told
tbat the whole of the bottom chord
members showed signs ol weakness
causing much anxiety to tbe workmen. Evidently at the time of disaster tbe vnri ius struts, posts and
chords throughout tbe whole bridge
were suffering Iron overstrain and
were on the verge ,..f collapse. In an
editorial entitled "Formula and the
Testing Mn bine," the same paper
recon..i.e.ids that actual tests be substituted tor calculations in the luture,
even where the tests would involve
great expense.   It says:
"The Quebec bridge was the victim
ol a too l.lin.I uiiii iu formula. This
primarily. Possibly it was the victim
of tbo unwise practice ol permitting
the sucees-ful c.mraetor for a bridge
to work out the deiails ol the design
himself, We u ideriftaiid tho coulract
for this bridge was taken fur a lixed
sum. If so, ihis obviously imposi-d
upon the engineer who developed ibe
plans ibo ti.sk of k oping down tbe
sum total ol mate.ial in the bridge to
tbe lowest possible lig.iie compatible
with s.fety.
"Among the many le-sons taught
by this cat.str. plu, tl.e one which
stands out- pre-eminently is that soma
of our bridge iiigiueots luve been
placing an altogether too implicit
faith in ihe"counuonly accepted formula for compression meratursaud
aiso ibat thoy In.v... been too anxious
to piucuce economy of materials,
"Does it not look its though tbe
time has arrived when, in view ol tlio
enormous interests involved congress
must appropriate (unds for the institution of such a plant, in whicli tests,
even as costly as these could be carried out? The testing ol large siz- d
bridge members would form only u
part of the work whioh such a plant
would accomplish. Tlie rapid development ol concrete construction for
instance, has brought in its train a
number ot problems which call for
immediate investigation. Evidence
of this is afforded by the many failures
of armored concrete which aro continually oourrriug. it iB positively
appalling to think nf tbo number
buildings, factory chimneys, bridges,
etc., whioh are beiug mailed up all
over the country and contemplate tbe
fact that no small percentage of them
embody inherent weakness either ol
design or construction, which bring
about their ultimate collapse. In the
field ol concrete steel alone a government plant of tbis kind would yield
invaluable results, lt is true that the
government is doing and has done a
large amount of work of this character
in its plants of limited capacity, but
tbe plan we advocate would call for u
thoroughly comprehensive, well-equipped plant, presided over by a corps of
oivil engineers, permanently assigned
to their positions, who would thus
acquire that store of cumulative
knowledge and proficiency which con-
linued service in a spooial line such as
tbis enn a... o insiiie."
A resolution passod by tho City
C.iHncil, urging that the growth oi the
city demanded tbe placing ot addition-
al drop letter boxes round the city.
This resolution was handed to the
Board ot Trade. G. S McCarter said
that the number ol drop li-xes were
sufficient but what be strongly urged
was that there sliould be belter facilities for the delivering of the mail as
soon as it had come in. He said that
tbe postmaster had promised to bave
a night man on duty for that purpose,
provided that the city gave tbe pest
office free light during the nignt shift
He pointed out that only one of the
drop boxes whs collected by the Dominion Government, whereas the box
outside Bews' drug store was established by private parties and cql'ected
by them as a public convenience.
E. A. Haggen said, he thought that
the Dominion Government should pay
Ior all collecting.
Moved G. S. McCarter, seconded E.
A. Haggen, that tbe Dominion Government be asked to collect Irom the
drop boxes and that tbey be asked for
better facilities for delivering of mail
on arrival bith day and night. Carried
Several communications were read
Irom tbe Dominion Government regarding the dam works. E. A. Hig-
gen said that ace.riling to u statement
made by Mr. Aylmer, it was too late
now to do much but that early in tho
spring work should te commenced.
F. B. Lewis said he bud ovory reason
t. believe that sufficient appropriation
for the completion of tbis work would
he mad' ul, tbe next session.
Tbe Hoard .greed to le.tve the matter in (jbeyauce until tbe spring and
then once mure remind the Federal
authorities of it,
Considerable discussion took placo
regarding tbe question of s eeping cut
berths and tbe compl tints that conductors had given such berths to passengers only lor a consideration. Cor.
respondence between tbe C.P.R. officials in the matter was lead, showing
that Supt. T. Kilpatrick bad strongly
represented the case to headquarters,
and the necessity (or an inquiry into
complaints. From the correspondence
it appears tbat the head sleeping car
department required Revelstoke to
furnish them with specific cases, where
conductors bad received consideration
for sleeping berths, otherwise nothing
could be done,
G. S, McCarter pointed out two
instances where this had happened,
and which could be verified, the porters as well being to blame.
A conmitteeof Messrs. McCarter
and Howson was appointed by tbe
Board to collect evideuce of such cases
and report to the superintendent.
The question of a double train service was freely discussed, tbe board
recognising tbe necessity ol such service all the year round.
H, Cunningham Morris said lhat he
understood fron. the local C.P.R. office
thst a train fro... Rovelstoke to
Vancouver had been arranged for in
the schedule ol thc time table but had
been canoellcd by Montreal.
