Well-known Citizen Sent up on
Charge ?f False Pretences-
Alleged to have Obtained
$180 From Mundy Lumber Co.
E. A. Haggen wae sent up for trial
by Justices  of  the   Peace Foster and
Jackson   lasl  evening  on  a charge of
obtaining money under false pretences.
The Court offered lo grant him ball of
$6,000 In Iwo sureties of $8,000 each,
but his counsel, Mr. Gillan, refused it,
and Intimated that he would today
make application to Judge Forin for
Imii in the higher Couit. Afterwards
the ball was reduoed to $4,000 in two
sureties of $2,000 each, which was
agreed lo, and Ah. Haggen allowed out
on payment by his sureties, J. Abrahamson and F. B, Wells.
It is understood that Judge Forin
may hold a special session to try the
case iu the county court next Wednesday.
ii. s. McCarter appeared for the
prosecution, and Messrs. C. E. Oillan
and W. I. llriggs for the accused. Defence was reserved.
The court room was crowded, and
the keenesc interest manifested in the
At the opening of the Court, magistrate Foster read the charge, which
was that E. A. Haggen did on or about
May 21 defraud the Mundy Lumber
Company at Three Valley, by representing himself as agent for the Lumbermen's Fire Insurance Company of
New Vork, and hy stating that he had
deposited in the bank a policy as
security, obtained froin the Mundy
Company, a bill of exchange for $180
with intent to defraud.
E. N. Hallock, general manager of
the Mundy Lumber Co., at Three
Valley, vswore that on May 1908 he
took oui an insurance policy from Mr.
Haggen, who represented himself as
agent for the Lumberman's Insurance
Co. of New York. The policy covered
lumber for $10,000. In Alay last (1909)
when the first policy was about expired, they received a letter from the
Molsons Bank saying that Haggen
had drawn on them for $180. Next
day Air. Ilagccn himself came to Three
Valley and Air. Hallock called his
attention to the notice froin the hank.
He asked if il was for the renewal of
the insurance policy, and Mr. Haggen
suid it was.
'■I asked him," said Mr. Hallock, "if
lie had deposited the policy with the
Imperial Bank and he'said he had. I
said if that is the case I will accept the
draft, so I tilled out the notice and
returned it authorising the acceptance
by the hank.''
He added that his company received
no policy and none was ever deposited
in the hank so far as he knew, A few
days later they received a nolice froin
the general agent of the Lumbermen's
Insurance Company at Portland saying that he had renewed their policy
and requested the payment of a bill of
$170 for the same. The lumber company wrote to the general agent that
they supposed they had renewed the
policy with Haggen. The general
agent wrote hack that Haggen was
not authorized to act as Iheir agenl.
The Alundy Lumber Company then
sent in the cheque to protect themselves. The draft for $180 matured in
the hank on July 21, when the company paid it-
Mr. McCarter.—"I have beard Unit
since tliese criminal proceedings
started Air. Haggen hits deposited this
amount to your credit in the bank?"
Mr. Hallock "I have beard of il,
lint know nothing of it officially,"
Cross-examined by Air. Gillan, Mr.
Hallock said that iu his conversation
wilh Air. Haggen al Three Valley, the
100m door was open and the book
keeper, who was aboul 16 feet away,
could have beard every word if she
was listening.
He could not remember  that Air.
Haggen had sent him notice lhat the
policy was alioul to expire. When
tht-v had heard from the general agent
they wrote to Mr. Haggen to attend to
ihe matter. He (Mr, Hallock) had
met Air- Haggen on the street and he
had promised to lake care of it. Later
All. Haggen said be hail written the
head ollice aliout the matter, Witness
could not remember that Air. Haggen
had written any letters promising to
straighten lhe matter up, but he had
made a verbal promise.
Air. Gillan produced a Utter written
by Mr. Haggen saying the remittance
had liccn returned to bim froin New
Vork, snd that he had mil known the
change in arrangements for agency,
He would take the matter Up with the
Molsons Bank and very much regretted the mistake,
Reexamined by Mr. AlcCarler Air.
Hgllook said thai when Mr. Haggen
had told him that be had sent the
money to the New Vork ollice they
had sent a message  In   New   York  Io
ascertain whether it hod been sent or
imi.    Tiny  reported   lhat   Air.   Hag-
gen's obeque bod heen returned hy the
Portland ollice on June 211. It was on
July 11 that Air. Haggen wrote to tbe
Alundy Lumber Company that he had
just received the returned cheque.
Magistrate Foster pointed out lhat
while lhe policy expired on May 21th
the accused had drawn on the 10th,
five days previously. Was it customary to do this ?
Air. Halloo'c said it wits not, but Ihey
were not particular to a few days.
Mr. Pratt, manager of the Molsons
Bank, swore lo the draft which Mr.
Haggen had draw n through thorn last
May on the Mundy Lumber Co., and
which they had paid on the authority
of tbe company, Air. Haggen on the
day that, he drew the money used it
il to pay olf another note held against
him by the Molsons Bank, so thai the
proceeds were soaked up Immediately,
So far as he knew, though Air. Haggen dealt with their hank, he had
never Ihrough them sent any cheque
or remittance lo the head offlce of the
Lumbermen's Insurance Co. in New
Cross-examined by Air. Gillan he
said that on July 21, when the draft
expired, he had presented it to the
Imperial Bank early in the day. Air.
Hnggen had the privilege of paying it
up to the closing of the bank that day.
Air. Haggen was out of town when
they paid his draft on the Alundy
Lumber Company. It was understood
that the money was to he left wilh
hill: lo discount his other note.
Asked what letters he had received
in reference to this matter, Air. Pratt
ptoduced one from Mr. Alundy which
Air. McCarter insisted on having read.
Air. Gillan objected. It was no part
of the evidence.
Mr. McCarter- "Vou brought it out
yourself, and I have Ihe right to demand that it be read. It is said that
I started this prosecution, This letter
will show whether I did or not.
The letter was read and in it Air.
.Mundy said that Air. Haggen had
rendered himself liable to criminal
proceedingf and intimated lhat Ihey
would be taken.
That was a month ago, before I
knew ai ything about the case at all,"
said Mr. McCarter, "it is evident that
Air, Mundy had his mind made up."
A. B. AlcCleneghan, managet of the
Imperial Bunk, said that Haggen hud
not deposited at tlieir hank last Alay
an insurance policy on the Alundy
Lumber Co. for $10,1100. It was about
the 7th of June tbat he got a letter
froin the Alundy Lumber On. asking if
uch a policy had lieen deposited with
them, us Air Haggen had stated to
them that it had been. He phoned to
Mr. Haggen afterwards and culled him
over to discuss the mutter. He tusked
bim if he li.ul sent a remittance to the
heiul otlice of the company, und Haggen saiil he had not. This happened
about June 7th. Huggen said he would
arrange the mutter at once and send a
remittance. The witness pointed out
thut it was a serious matter us unless
the money wus puid the policy of
$10,000 would he of no force, and it
affected the bank as it was interested
in the company's business. Haggen
s.titl he wus sending a remittance.
Late Lhal day he phoned for Haggen
again and askeil him in what manner
he sent his remittance and be said "By
marked cheque." It was on July 21
that the Molson's Bunk presented the
draft for $180 on the Mundy Lumber
Co. They hud instruction from the
company lo puy ull paper uud paid it.
He asked the Molsons Hunk that
morning if they had the bill in question us they would like to see it, They
sent over the draft after some little
delay, and it was about a quarter to
eleven when it was entered in the
ledger, but il was held hy Ihem and
actually paid on the following morning.- Yesterday (Thursday) about one
o'clock Air,Haggen presented a cheque
for the payment of the amount to the
Imperial Bank. He suid. "You are
holding a bill of mine and I want to
pay it." Air. McCleneghan told him
that tbe bill had already been paid.
He refused to release the voucher because be knew that criminal proceedings hud lieen entered, and the bill
needed in evidence' Mr. Huggen then
tendered payment. Mr. AlcCleneghan
told him Ihey eoultl not accept payment., but he might place lhe amount
lo Hit- credit ol the company, and Mr,
Huggen deposiled a inurkcdchcquo for
Cross-examined Air. McCleneghan
said that after the draft was paid
Huggen could not get il, of course,
Air. (.illiui asked him to say what
Mr. Mundy had told him about, the
collection of the draft.
Air. MoCleneghan refused lo answer,
bul being questioned by the Bench
said Air. Mundy bad mentioned lhe
due date of the bill, and had given
general inst ructions. Hr hud beard
that Air. Mundy hud laitl an Information against Haggen, having been
Informed so by Air. McCarter on tin-
previous day. lie had the transaction
on his 111iml, uud this prompted him in
being anxious about the payment, of
Ihe draft in good time.

SATURDAY, JULY  'Jl   1909
We understand that tbe Trades
and Labor Council has inaugurated
a movemnnt tor the abolition ol
the ward -_\>tt-ui in this city. The
motive no doubt is that the aldermen instead of pulling for any particular eecti i.. shall work for the
good ol the city as a whole. While
this SOU tide plausible it seem- t"
us a mutter in which it would be
well to go slow. The ward -ystem
1 i- after all but a copy in miniature
of the system by which all coun
tries that have true representative
.-.'.ernmenl art- ruled. The Dominion is carved into large constituencies called wards. The purpose for which this ie i me ie the
same in each case, it - tbat eat h
district may have it- own representative to v.n •• _■- sentiments ind

of the Council, each oneol whom
may claim that it is the business ol
everybody else It seems to u.-
tliat it would work back to ward
representation without defined
boundaries. Kach sectiouof tbe
city would wish lo have at
least one pi reon in the council, and
if they were thwarted in thai desire by the predominating vote ol
other sections, they would cry for
representation again.
As an instance to band we mi^ht
take the lower town in Revelstoke
That portion of the city li certainly
large and influential enough to
have its representatives on the
council hoard, ami under o general
system uf election would no doubl
elected practically froin the one
quarter, we cannot think that that
would result in a satisfactory state
of feeling. Or we will admit that
under the general system each portion of the city succeeds ih getting
its aldermen in, who shall unolli-
cially be regarded as the representatives of their different sections.
How is the line hetween tlieir
spheres of work to he drawn? What
is to prevent Jones from saying
that to Smith, and not to him,
belongs the responsibility for the
scoured out sewer on Fourth sireet,
or the rotten roadway on Broadway drive? The result would be
that boundaries would have to be
again defined, and we should be
back in llie same position as before,
lt seems to us therefore that
it would be well and wise to hasten
slowly in making tliese changes.
If the experiment is to be niai.lt-, it
could he done without disturbing
present conditions ureatiy, by
electing three ward aldermen and
three from the city at large. That
it seems to us would be a more
sensible solution of the difficulty,
Then each ward would still have
its alderman to apply tu for the
adjustment of its ditliculties, and
there would be three men also free
from sectional inlluence, who
would take that broad view of
things which it is hoped to bring
about by the proposed change. It
is Baid that signature.- to a petition
fur the abolition of the ward system have been Becured which represent three-fifths of the entire property of the city We would advise
these gentlemen, however, t" give
it a Becond thought, and before
plunging into rash experiments,
allow tlie changes from tl» old
ortler of things to broaden down
steadily from precedent to pn
up   the   frozen
bones of mammoths, which coulil
only have lived there when the
climate was semi-tropical. Ureal
coal beds have heen found in northern countries, beds that could only
have been formed when the rank
vegetation of the carboniferous age
flourished in the Turkish bath
atmosphere of the pre-galacial
epoch. The prorotype of the great
fossils could not have nourished in
the stunting cold of Arctic winters.
In addition to this the pioneers uf
the prairie pruvinoes will tell you
that the climate of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, is warmer
to-day than it was MO or 40 years
ago. Then it was almost impossible to grow wheat that would
escape fiost in districts where summer frosts are now rarely known.
Much no doubt is due to the cultivation of the land which rentiers
the soil porous, so that it retains
the heat of the day, and radiates it
through the night; but this cannot
account for ihe fact that the basins
of the Peace ami Mackenzie rivers,
years ago regarded as little better
than an Arctic wilderness, are now
in places inhabited by settlers who
grow hard, red wheat from Edmonton TOU miles north while the
farmer is driving the fur trader
from the shores of the Lesser Slave
I.alee. North of that again indefinitely cattle can be raised, antl
potatoes and vegetables and oats
can be grown.
This northward movement of the
temperate none must mean that in
years to cume Canada will he settled   hy  a  white   ] pie  irmii the
international boundary to the
shores of the Antic sea. In the far
north settlement will be more and
mure scatteri I, as it v ill re .uire a
larger area to sustain life in the
short summers, bul som settlement   there  will   almost surely be
nnil the great mineral wealth of
the Mackenzie river, of which we
have heard hut faint reports as yer,
will, a.- it I't'Co'i.es developed, almost surely mean tin- establishment of large camps along the
course uf that great artery. All
this will call for the rnnstructiiin
of new railways, be -ause plentiful
as the waterways are in (he north,
ihey can only be used fur a portion
if each year. This in turn will
mean vast expenditure of capital,
bo that Canada before this century
closes will become, if it is not now,
the greatest field of investment in
the world. I'rinee Rupert anil
Kilmuiiton anil the cities of the
uurih will profit, by I hose great new
openings, and the south will also
glean ils share uf their wealth.
With all this in view Canadians
may well rejoice that Nature herself conspires with the march of
events to number their country
among the greatest naliuns that are
yet to be.
The Liberals, of Golden, have
gut in ahead of things. They are
the lirst people in Hrit sh Colum hi a
to put a candidate in the field for
the next Provincial elections.
While it is usually wise to take
time hy the forelock it appears to
us that there are cases iu which
this may be overdone. As yet no
provincial election is actually in
sight, ami there is nothing to prevent the government from postponing it till another year. Should
this be done it will mean that during all this time the lone candidate
in Golden will be held in the limelight and all his failings and
shortcomings searched. It will
mean further that any enthusiasm
that may gather around a candidate on first appearance will have
time to lizzie out, and his words
will fall on the elector's like flat
champagne, ll appears to us that
fur both parties a short fight and a
merry une would he hest.
A short lime ago we called attention to the necessity for taking
immediate action to purchase block
52 adjoining the present school
site, and also the rights nf Judge
Sproat in those sites. We have
not heard yet that any definite
step has been taken to that end,
and we would gently remind the
sehuol hoard that time is passing.
Only sixty davs was allowed from
the defeat of the last bylaws to get
another bylaw under way, and we
should like to ste some steps taken
to accomplish this. The need of
more scboul room and play room
is obvious, and steps should he
taken to secure it with as little
delay as possible. Before another
week has passed we should like to
hear that a petition has heen circulated looking to that end.
It was good tu see the business

When o'er him burns the southern sun.
Above his grave the spring   llowers
When ours are laded, past and gone.

His children in each hemisphere,
The same white moon al ovetbem mills,
The same sun gilds each falling tear.

And gives us Ibis tu soothe our grief
He fell as falls the mellowed fruit,
Was garnered as the ripened sheaf.
The lesson of his life was writ,
His  furrow   turned,  his  day's  work
With clouds of evening over it,
He sank its sinks the setting sun,
And we who stay, and we who mourn,
Can only hope like him to dome,
Like well filled ears of ripened corn,
In God's good time to harvest home,
Like him with deeds of usefulness
We too may smooth the rugged ways,
For those whose feet shall follow us
When darkness seals our shortening
And  resting   froin  the   hard-fought
We reap the fruits of love and toil,
In brighter day, in larger life,
In Heaven's eternal smile.

Jewelry Pluntlered at Golden  -Many Arrests
But No Convictions
The drug and jewelry store ol A. J.
Buckham, at Uolden, is repurled tu
have been bruken into on Monday
night and a quantity ol goltl watches
and other jewelry stolen. The police
bave been notified at different points
along tbe line and a number ol men
have been arrested and held, but so far
the real thieves du not appear to have
been captured. Oue man was arrested
by the local police in Revelstoke on
Wednesday morning, but no jewelry
was found on him, The story he told
of his movements, however, was hardly
satisfactory and he was held for some
time f_ir further investigation, but
has since been released.
Provincial Constable Kington also
picked up two men on Thursday who
had been hanging around the out-
skirts ul the tuwn, but there was no
jewelry on them either, aud after being
held for investigation they were released. It is also reported that a man
who was here sweeping cbimiieysabout
a week ago, had been held in Field,
but was released as there was nothing
to connect him witb the crime. All
whu met the man here are confident of
his honesty. Besides, a man whu will
sweep chimneys fur a living, is not
likely to Hteal.

was recently held in Vancouver at
which Hon. W. Templeman, J A
Macdonald, Rossland; Stuart Hender
son and Dennis Murphy ol Ashcroft,
aud several of the lo al men were
present. Jt is generally expected that
Mr. Macdonald will accept the chief
justiceship of the Appellate Court to
be established this fall, but 6o far
nothing has actually been done in
looking towards the choice ill a successor, though among the present
members ol the HutiBe lhe chuice
would be almost sure to lad between
John Oliver and Stuart Henderson.
While nu canvass ol the members has
been made, those who know are ol
opinion that if it came to a ballot
Oliver would be chosen, as he is at
present recognised as his leader's right
hand man and the warhorse ol the
party. Belore another election, however, a compromise may be arrived
at by bringing in some dark horse
from the obtaide.

The Lower Town Men Win in a Game That
was Furious, Fast and Funny, '
The old Ian howled in uproarious glee
And  whistled and threw up his hat.
"Many's the game I have seen," said be
" But never a game like tbat "
The game was the great lacrosse
match between the veterans of the
upper and lower town played on tlie
Y M.C.A. grounds on Thursday evening. The players were medhine, and
law, and banking and hotels, and
railways and barber shops, and real
estate and sawmills, antl stores and
everything the town possesses. It was
last and it was tunny, and though one
side was beaten everyone waa pleased.
The result illustrated the truth of the
Scriptural adage that the last shall be
first, (ur in ibis case the lower became
the higher, and the upper was the
lower—ou the score sheet. Ol course
the upper town men attribute tlieir
defeat to the presence ol Biune ol tlieir
numbers that went to make up the
full complement ol the lower town
team, and tbe lower town men say if
it had not been for the bulky lorni ul
Guy Barber in goal the defeat would
have heen ten times worse. Anyhow
the game ended two to nothing in
favor of the lower town men.
There was a great turnout. All
Kevels'oke and his wife antl cliililren
were there and lined the grounds in a
deep enthusiastic rank, that laughed
and obeered and heartily enjoyed it all.
The teams lined up under the captaincy of A. B. McCleneghan lor the
upper own, and Allien Stone lor lhe
lower. Alex. McDonnell was referee
and Alex. Mcllae waB the judge ol
play. Must ol the lower town men
wore red sweaters, and most ol the
upper town men were in white, though
all became more or less discolored belore the game was uver. The game
started out with a little preliminary
fencing, then there was a run up the
lield, nnd almost before anyone was
aware of it, the lower lown men had
landed the hall in their opponents net.
This roused the upper town men and
8 lively scimiuaging followed in
the entre ot the field, but the ball
shot towards the upper town goal
again. Thi- time 'iuy Barber's sporting spirit wa- up, and he caught the
ball and amid cheers from the spectator sent it bouncing back into the
middle uf tin ield. Then Couk made
a bold run fnr the lower goal but was
In tbe second >|uarter Or. Sutherland distinguished himsell by a magnificent run in which halfadOZOU men

Leaving Edmonton on May lilth
with 18 yoke of oxen and a year's
supplies, the long trek ol .150 miles
was begun, the direct winter route of
240 miles being impassible (rom
As (ar as Athabasca Landing the
roads were found in a very lair con
ditiun and the 110 miles were covered
in peven days. Here arrangements
were made lo ship most ol the supplies by the steamer Midnight Sun, to
the west end ol Lesser Slave lake. The
women and children were also lelt to
droceed by waler. The parly got a
contract to chop 200 cords ol wood at
$2 a conl for the navigation company,
antl this paid the freight and passages.
The land route from Athabasca
Lauding around the north shore of Ihe
lake ia described as decidedly strenuous, especially the hills. Bald hill,
about two and a hall miles long, took
two anil a half days to surmount, and
four or five teams of oxen had to be
put on a load to get it up. Other hills
were so steep and icy that tbe oxen
were s.metimes sliding on their hips
half ol the way down, and several up
sets occurred. Often corduroy roads
bad to be built belore tbe outfit could
proceetl. Martin river, lo r and a
half leet deep, and ipiito wide, bad to

At Shaw's Point the women aud
children rei lined the party and a
start was made about the middle ol
.lune lor Peace River crossing. They
had some 225 miles still to cover to
Beaver Lodge, (irand Prairie, their
objective point, which they expected
to reacli about July 6.

was only sine of one conversation

The charge was trail In Mi. Haggen

Mr. (iillan argued Umi the accused

Hank, that this money could be used
to pay bis overdue note lying tbere.
He had lefl the Mundy Company without a cent of valid insurance from the
26th of May to the 7th of June, and
they would have been out $10,1)00 if

The courl after a short   intermission

witnesses be might have to bring.
Mr. (iillan said Ile I bought, lhe accused should be simply held on bia

He bad no wish at this stage to put iu

Magistrate Foster said evidence of
false pretences at Three Valley bad

had heard nothing to the contrary.
Since the defence did not wish In put

send tlie case up and would allow the
accused mil on Iwo bonds of $B,(KI0
Mr. (iillan said he would rather
choose committal and make application for bail before judge Forin who
was hi ill in town.
Magistrate Foster said he did not
think the bail too high and they bad
no wish that it should be prohibitive,
Mr. (iillan saiil Ihey would furnish

Mr. Foster said tbey followed the
