COUNCIL AND
HULETT CASE
Inspection of Milk Advocated—
Garnishee Orders and
Civic Employees
Aid Bourne presided at the meeting
of the city council laBt night, thc
mayor being abBcnt as was also Aid.
Pradolini
Thc case of H.E. Hulett who la under arrest in Brantford charged by
J.D. Sibbald with theft was brought
before the council through a letter
from George S. McCarter, city solicitor, who reported thut he had investigated the charge and was ot the
opinion that a prima facie case
against Hulett existed. In that case
the duty of prosecution rested with
the city and the city should pay the
expense of bringing Hulett back for
trial, he said.
H. M. Parry, chief of police, was
summoned and explained that a
warrant was sworn out and that iu
pursuance of his duty and acting ou
instructions he had* traced Hulett and
secured his arrest.
Tbe cost of bringing Hulett back
was estimated at some 33 OO. In the
ahsenc..' ol the mayor it was decided
to deter action until the next meet
ing of the council.
Aid Smythe gave notice of a bylaw to regulate the milk traffic. His
idea waB that? the medical health officer should test the milk. Consumers
he said, did not know whether they
were drinking water or milk, Some
dairies lie  declared were  insanitary.
Aid. Bourne said that the city already had a mill; bylaw and thut the
government sent inspectors to visit
the dairies.
Aid. McSorley thought that the inspector visited the stables and inspected  the cattle, but not the  milk.
Aid Bourne remarked that he had
known children to peddle milk while
other children In the same household
had scarlet fever.
Aid. Smythe wanted to know if it
was legal for the city to accept
garnishees order Orders and garnishees were applied to the wages of
certain employes of the city every
month.
Aid. Bourne explained that any
employer of labor with the exception
of the government could be garnish' «d and that the city had no
choice but  to'accept the order.
Aid. Needham said that in the
Canadian Pacilic railway service an
employee was discharged if a second
garnishee was served. He thought it
might be well if the same rule applied in th>? city's service.
Aid. Bell and Aid. Smythe were
appointed a court of revision of thc
voters list to sit on December 10.
H. Hunt and W. A. McDonald appeared retarding the payment of contractors' 'licenses. Mr. Hunt said he
was a plasterer not a contractor and
he had been asked to pay a contractor's license.
Aid. Needham said that a contractor was one who employed labor
itiHte'.'id of performing tbs work himself. The council will enquire into
the question
A ti ill of 1130 from H.H.B. Abbott
for installing surveyors' monuments
on the streets wus received.
Dr. E.H.S. McLean reported that
two cases of scarlet fever had been
quarantined and the bouses fumlgatl
td.
A bylaw was passed providing for
the mayor's salary i>(  >">00.
SUICIDE OF
HOMESTEADER
Cuts Throat with Dull Butcher
Knife Owing to Disappointment in Love
R. T. Muse, a rancher living on his
homestead   four and     one halt  miles
■south     of     RevelBtoke     committed
suicide on Tuesday  night  by  cutting
his throat With a   butcher knife.    It
appears that thc 'act was committed
j in his house  ufter which     he  walked
! out of the house toward the trail but
' fell down. He arose     and began     to
! retrace his steps     but     died   before
' reaching the house.    He had  evidently
j been preparing for     bed as the body
was clothed 'only in under garments.
The knife with which the suicide was
committed  was    dull    but tbe  wound
was deep although not lonf.
The body was found lying just outside the door of the house on Wednesday afternoon. by a son of Thomas
Nicol, a neighboring rancher, who
happened to be passing, The boy
went home and told his father who
summoned Charles Lonnard and afterwards W. Burn, neighbors, and the
police were notified. J.H. Hamilton,
coroner, provincial constable Rothwell, R. Howson and Daniel Leary
went to the scene in an automobile
on Wednesday evening and brought
thc body to Howson & Co's. undertaking parlors. As it wns evidently a
] case of suicide, no inquest was deemed necessary.
Muse was an Englishman, Jo years
of age who lived alone on his homestead. He was engaged to be married
to a girl in England and It is be-
I lieved that a disappointment in the
love affair led him to take his Hie.
He kept himself much to himself and
lately had appeared silent and
morose. His home was a comfortable
Iol' house some '11 by 2" feet in size
i nd he was not in financial need as
;>'I00 was found on thn body. He had
arranged to cnlargo thc house in preparation for his marriage next
spring.
On Tuesday Muse had been   in Revelstoke   and on   Tuesday   evening   be
I visited  Wis neighbor Charles Leonard
where he shaved himself.    Apparently
he committed suicide immediately on
bis  return home.
Muse formerly     lived in Vancouver
i where two sisters are now living. He
took up his     homestead     about     18
months ago and had done some clearing as well as erected .( house.
1    F.  G.  Roper, a brother-in-law     of
j deceased has arrived in the city.   The
interment will take place at the   Revolstoke cemetery.

Prize Birds Stolen
from H, Smythe's Ranch
On Saturday night about IC o'clock
someone entered the thicken house
at H. Smythe's ranch and stole all
bis prize birds. The birds were particularly valuable having taktnmany
prizes at the co<tst, and were to be
shipped at once to the provincial
show at Vernon.
Genera] Sir William Otter, in charge
of the arrnnjements for the internment of alieni,\ll in Ottawa nnd had
an interview with tho Minister of
Justice. The plans nre now pretty
well defined, the idea being that the
aliens of enemy countries who are
likely to be public charges, Bhould bo
removed to camps to engage in clearings and wood cutting operations.
Italian tests of plowing with elec-
trir motors demonstrated that it

Pacific coast amateui hockey officials have releived a copy of the rules
proposed for the new hockey commission Which will be 'erganized at a
conference to be held in Ottawa on

thnt affiliation will come immediately upon the organization of a Pacific
coast amateur league.

Should Public Utilities
be State Owned
Should public utilities be state
owned? was thoroughly discussed,
pro. and con., by the debating
society, which met in the Y.M.C.A.
last evening. C. Somerville, W. Leslie and H.N. Coursier defended the
affirmative side oi the question and
J. M. Paterson, J. Gordon and A.
Bennett the negative.
These are some of the (taints
brought out by thc affirmative.
Take as examples of public utilities
the schools, power and lightiug
plants, telephone and tek'graph systems, the postal system, the army
and navy, roads and bridges. These
are all state owned and are a success. The railroads in this country
are not state owned. As a result we
have more money being spent on ruil-
roads than is necessary. Lines are
run side by side for competition,
where us state owned railroads could
Le diverted over more territory. We
would get service instead ol profit.
The parcel post system, operated by
thc state is a cheaper and more convenient means of sending parcels than
he express. The express companies
ure privately owned. '
In response the negative side point-
id out thut government ownership
was the cause of graft. In Great Britain the telephone and telegraph systems are state owned. The systems
caunot compare with the privately
owned syst'.'ms in America. In England there is oue telephone per thousand inhabitants and you can very
often send a messenger more quickly
thau yon cun telephone. In the United .States there are 15 telephones per
thousand inhabitants and it takes a
few seconds to telephone fiom New
Vork to Philadelphia. Take the rail-
roads, competition is the cause of
the elaborate accommodation provided by our roads. Take our post
offices, their management is olten a
disgrace, tlie employees are Bome-
tlmei incupnlfl" and certainly do not
always serve the public as they
would if the system «ere privately
owned. Many other interesting points
.vi. brought out by both sides. The
audience was decidedly in favor of
the negative.
Tho subject for next Friday's meeting us "The Irish are a more humorous race than the Scotch," and tho
speakers will bc as follows.For affirmative, W.M, Lawrence, A Thomson,
S. Gordon. For negative, B.R. Atkins
A    Itoss,   I.S.  Ross.
These meetings are both educational iii'l interesting and are open to all
men whether members of "the Y.M.C.
A. or not.

GAY SCENE AT
MASQUERADE
Firemen's Ball Huge Success
—Costumes Quaint, Original
and Beautiful
Always  a success   and one   af   the
chief social events of the Beason,   the
fancy dress ball gUven by Fire Brigade
No.  1,  this year    made a new record
for brilliance and gaiety.     The scene
in the opera house when the ball was
at its height was animated and high- i
ly picturesque.    Everyone seemed   to
enter into the spirit of     the     affair, I
and under the superintendence ,of   It-
Gordon,     who actsd as tloor manager ,
with his oldt'inie Bkill, the dance was j
a complete success and went with    a I
vim that told of thorough enjoyment. I
lhe  floor  was in good  condition,  the
nniBic  rendered    by    Orrs'   orchestra |
was excellent,    and the gay costumeB
und  bright  and  well  decorated  hall,
combined to afford a scene of vlvac-1
ity and brilliance In    which joviality
rc'igned  supreme. Ample and appetising  refreshments    were served during ,
the evening.
Not only was tne floor thronged
with dancers, all in fancy costumes
and masked, but the galleries and
boxes were tilled w'ith spectators who
took evident enjoyment in watching
the spectacle provided by the revels
below and evinced much interest in
selecting tho winners of the prizes offered for the best costumes, exhibited
on the stage. Many of the dresses
were not only handsome in themselves but showed much taste and
originality. The four quarters of the
globe, the realm of imagination and
even the regions below had been ransacked to provide striking characters.
There were represented Russian cos-
sacks, Turkish ladies, Indian chiefs,
Moors, Spaniards, Norwegians, China
men, sailors, soldiers, jesters, shep-
nrdesses. characters from various
operas, nurses, clowns, und many
fanciful costumes which showed considerable ingenuity in conception and
design.
Popular vote awarded to Miss Mc-
Carty, who impersonated the Sultan's favorite, the handsome reading lamp offered as prize for the
best ladies costume. Her attire was
picturesque and becoming and won
general commendation. The vote was
2(5 for Miss McCarty, next bring No.
131 who received 2" votes. Ross Donaldson us i magnificent Indian chief
with blanket and headdress of feathers won the prize for the best man's
costume with 24 votes. Next came
numbers 20 and 130 with is votes
each. For the best comic costume
Frank Hooley as Happy Hooligan
tarried off the prize by unanimous
vote. His tin can as hat and comic
mask were ridiculous in the extreme
and the costume well merited the 76 ,
votes recorded for it. Mr. 'and Mrs. |
George Ross won the prize lor the
best dressed couple. They wore picturesque Highland costumes. Tbe *
vote was :'.8 for Mr. and Mrs. Ross
and X'i lor numbers 2" and 11. Mrs.'
D. Orr as Sterling gum in a cos-1
tume as attractive as it was ingenious won the prize for the most
original costume with 16 "votes, num-|
ber 16 with 15 votes came a close second.
The grand march In which those in
character paraded  previous      to     the
awarding   of    prizes and unmasking
was one of the features of the even-
Ing from the spectators point of view
and gave an excellent opportunity to
Inspect the costumes, The characters
of Sir Peter and Lady Teazle were
much admired, Miss Moore wore an
elfect ive /ostium- as black and white
and K.G. McRae as George Washington was much remarked. As daughter
of the 102nd regiment Miss M.
Smythe assumed a character especially appropriate at the present time,
and Miss Myrtle Robinson as England wore a becoming and prettv cos-
tttme i'i which the flag predominated.
Miss K. Sibbald with tambourine as
Esmeralda, Mrs. iioiigias Turner as
France and Mrs. Holten as Carmen
were among others whose costumes
were pnrticnl.-irU admired. D. A. McDonald as Knight Commander ofthe
Hath In robe of bftth towelB with
sponges and bath brushes had a costume if miieli originality. J. Knox
as   i  COSter,   Mrs   Corning as Canada,
J, !•'., Bruce is a monk, F, Fishers as
Louis XII, Miss !>■■>. is i a Madame

Bylaw on Monday
Three-fifths of Vote Cast Necessary to Carry—Eight
Lots and Two Buildings on Property Hours for
Voting from Nine to Seven at City Hall—Property
Owners Eligible to Vote.
Voting on the bylaw for the pur-
chuse of a market site will take place
at the city hall on Monday next between the hours of 9 a.m. and ".p.m.
with R.R. Reynolds as returning ol
licer. Those entitled to vote are property owners, of Which there are
some 700 on thc list, and three tilths
of the total vote cast Is accessary to
secure the  passage of  the bylaw.
The proposed site consists ol eight
lots. It measures 2'-!> by 100 feet and
on it are two buildings. It is bounded on the north by Second street on
the south by Third street, on the
west by an alley and on the Fast by
Campbell avenue.
The lots are lots I, 5, fi, 7, 8, 9, 10
and 11 in block 9. Lots 1 and 11 measure J7J by 102 feet and the remaining lotB 2a by 10(1 feet. The owners
are as follows: Lots 1, 5 and ti, R.D.
McDonald, lots 7, 8, 9 Frnnk Peters,
August Peterson and OBcar Peterson.
Lots 10 and 11 W.A.P. Connolly. The
price at which the lots are oflered to
the city is $10,500 and tbe owners
agree to tate in payment citv bonds
payable in lb years.
Some expressions of opinion on the
bylaw by prominent citizens are as
follows:
Vi. A. Foote, ex-alderman and fire
chief, "Ths city should certainly secure a site that might be used lor
the erection of a new fire hall and
city hall and now is the time to buy.
The proposed market site would al-
ford a most convenient, site for a new
fire hall and would suit both ends of
tha city. The present city hall site is
valuable and  could  be      sold lor     a
good figure and the city must undoubtedly have a new tie hall soon."
Dr. J. H. Hamilton, ex-mayor, "I
am in favor of the city acquiring a
market site."
Vi. M. Lawrence, president Law-
jicnco Hardware Company, —"I believe' the city should have a market
but I do not believe m spending so
large a sum at the present time. I
do not think there are sufficient farmers in the district yet to require so
large an area. It seems to me that
sufficient room might he found between the tool shed and the police
station for the present."
J. G. Barber, ex-alderman and
mayoralty candidate, "The situation
of the proposed market site is a good
one. No more convenient locality
could be chosen.'A new police station
and fire hull will soon be required
and the land that it is proposed to
buy would be s iltable for that pur-
rose, if it can b ised. 1 believe the
city should have a public market."
S. Holmes, "Th* proposed market
Bite is in a good position. It is central and of good size. The city could
obtain same revenue from market
tolls which would help to lighten the
cost."
C. B Hume, ex-alderman and president C.B. Hume Company, Limited,
"I do not think th".t the city is justified in spending $10,500 for a murket
site at the present  time."
Rev. C. A. Procunier, "Certainly 1
think the city should have a market
site. It would do much to stimulate
the agricultural industry. 1 think
the proposed site is most suitable for
the purpose."

Good Work Accomplished
by Relief Society
In thc past few months the Revelstoke Relief society haB made appeals
to the citizens for assistance in their
various projects, and ouch time received a generous response. In the
future, and in view of the approaching hard winter time they will appeal to the generosity of tho public
again, and before doing so felt that
a little publicity given the Relief
society—Its objects and attainments
would not come amiss.
The Relief society is the outcome of
a request made by the daughters of
the empire, to the people of Revelstoke to assist ln raising funds to
equip a hospital ship to care for the
dick and wounded In this present
great war. The ladies of the city
loyally took up the work of raising
what funds they could to help this
worthy caiiHc. The public meeting
was held on August 10, and in a little over 21 hours the sum of $.->3ll.(l0
had  been collected.
At a meeting called in the city hall
on the atternoon of Weilnesduy, Aug.
12, it was decided that In View of the
fact that the amount gathered was
tor in excess of all anticipation, and
a greater proportion than that considered to be Revelstoke's share in
the equipment of the hospital ship, it
was finullv decided to send $800.00 of
this money to the Daughters of the
Empire, the balance to be held at
home to meet future demands which
might occur during the progress of
the war.
At this meeting it was also decided to organize a society to help in
all possible ways the dependents of
soldiers going to the front, and to
give assistance along the lines of Red
Cross work.
Consequently a third meeting was
held in the city hall on August 17,
and the RevelstoKe Relief society was
formed with an executive as follows:
President,—Mrs.  T.  Kilpatrick.
Vice-president,—Mrs. G.S.' McCarter
Secretary,—Mrs. H. H.  McVity.
Treas.—Mrs.  Ernest H.  S. McLean.
The object of the society was outlined in a few words. "To relieve
needs of any kind that arises In
connection with the war."
The society has, to date, a paid-up
membership of 72, but this is a very
meagre proportion of the women that
should belong and an urgent Invitation is extended to any woman in the
city to join the society and assist ln
the work it is doing.
In the months that have followed
the women have met each Wednesday
afternoon at the Y.M.C.A., where the
members are kept busy serving or
knitting to supply the needs of the
soldiers and the business of the society Is discussed.
In connection with the _ Relief
societv a branch of the St. John's
Ambulance corps has been started
and the class meets once a week and
takes the "first aid" Instructions, In
which splendid progress is being
made.
Ever since the formation of tho
society the men doing; sentry duty
along thc ruilroad have been provided with literature. Each man that
has left town has been provided <vith
a "houeswife" and' extra pairs of
socks, besideB some extra parcels
having been sent to thoBe already
abroad. Substantial cheques have
been issued to two families whose
wage-earners have been called to the
country's service and the hospital
of one woman whose confinement
came after her husband's departure
was met Irom the [unds of the society
Besides these. boxes ot apples were
put on severul trains of Boldicrs,
passing through thc city.
A Patriotic dance was held in thc
drill hall at which nearly $l4ti.on was
realized A committee to look alter
cases ot local charity has been appointed, a representative chi sen trom
each ol the churches and from among
the wives of the Canadian Pacific
railway men. The committee, Is Mrs.
Atkins, Mra. Robblns, Mrs. Downs,
Mrs.  Kilpatrick and Mrs. Cormier.
A committee to look after sending
relief to thc Belgians was appointed
as follows: Mrs, Robblns, Mrs. Mc-
Carter, Mrs. Sutherland, Mrs. Holten
and Mrs. Coultbard. These ladies
were Indefatigable In their efforts and
over a ton of clothing was shipped
to these Buffering people, and the
shipment Was remarkable for itB excellent quality as well as quant ily.
Two monthly donations are received hy the societv: *10 from the
staff In T.J. Wndmnn's offices and
630 from the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, this last to be
applied toward  local work.
A tea and exhibition of work done
bv the members was held In the Y.
M.C.A. on November 5, The display
of supplies ready fur shipment was a
iiiagoiliri'iit one and a very forcible
testimony to the energy and interest
of tbe members of the society. These
Were Inter shipped to the h-eiidi<Juitr
tan if the'  11'-< 1 Cross iii Toronto for
shipment to the front. Besides thc
actual necessities there was a most
generous showing of gifts to help
brighten Tommy Atkins' Christmas.
The social hour spent over the 20 tea
tables was much enjoyed and the coffers of the society were enriched by
nearly *:!(*>.tlO.
On November 13 and 11, the ladles
took charge of the department store
cf Messrs C.B. Hume & Co,, and conducted a patriotic sale, the result being most satisfactory to all the percentage received from this amounting
to over $100,
On November 20 a putriotic concert
was held in the opera house, the
amount realized from this being in
the .neighborhood of $29(1,no. The
amounts received from these various
ventures at lirst glance look large,
but when one stops to consider thc
expenditures necessary to carry on
the work tlie society is doing, wonder will soon cease and all will be
ready to render assistance as before.
A patriotic sale wns under way yesterday and ThurBdav in the store of
H.  Manning
Plenty of material is cut out and
ready for manufacture and ' anyone
wishing to assist by taking work
home and making it up may secure
same by applying ut Y.M.C.A. every
Wednesday afternoon from :l to fi p.m
or during the week to Mrs. T Kilpatrick.

GERMANY EXPOSED
In vain have the missionaries of
German culture labored to cast their
spell over tbe world at large.     They
have been abroad since the war he-
i-an, and i» many countries have
-..I,- unsparing use. of their greut re-
sources ind their potent arts, but
they cannot stay the process of dis-
Ulusionmenl c.ermeiny long Imposed
upon the world. She was accepted at
ber 'Wil estimate. Her neighbors
yielded her the respect due to a nation of high honor. Tbey rsgarded
her as worthy ol the trust she held in
loranion with themselves for the upholding if civilization. They were
even disposed to admit hei claims to
be foremost in leadership along certain lines ot world progress. Her
culture was not questioned. The war
has exposed her, and has opened the
eyes of her neighbors, it has rubbed
v fl thc veneer of her culture, and reveals her as u barbarian of quite
Scythian   vicioU6ness.
The time 'is at hand when the scales
will fall from the eyes of the German people themselves nnd they will
see in its true character the system
their war lord hus built up. When
the German war machine loses prestige with thc German people, what a
downfall there will be! As long as
the army was a thing of pomp nnd
eplendor, and passed for an invincible
host, the German people rendered
homae; to it. When they behold it
falling back upon their soil before
advancing armies, a mere wreck of
its tortner greatness, they will be
tilled rather with resentment against
it than with compassion Ior it. The
results of militarism will then hnve
come home to them. The flower of
their country's manhood will have
been sacrificed, tbeir trade and industry ruined, and their national
greatness e^plodtd. The most abused
and unforgiving victims ol Kaiserism
will be the Kaiser's own subjects. As
the reverses of war become greater,
the troubles at home will increase,
an.l apolitical revolution is not un.
hkelj to be an early sequel of the
war machine's failure. It already begins to appear to the German people
that none bat the maddest of leaders
would have iroiuht their country into a war w.th so many and so powerful adversaries.

BUSINESS AS C8DAL
Monetary   Timi of our con-
:,,ries are i.-.clined to be keenly
critical of the admirable slogan
eai as Usual." Every sane
man kn'iwe that durin.' the world's
greatest war, business cannot go on
•ts usual. But excellent results are
achieved by trying. Nothing can be
jained by standing idle, hopeless,
pessimistic, complaining. It helps far
more than our cynics realize, wh n
the nation is working hard, producing, holding faith in rare and country, having optimism ot the right
kind, ceasing to grourh localise of financial indiscretions and localise sacrifices have to   be made to ensure    the
Empire's existence. Business is better
than usual 'm many lines, ub usual ln
some, poor or bud i.n others. That is
partly Canada's faulUund partly the
fault of the war. In any case, we
should stand up to the inevitable and
try, at least, to do business as usual.
LIGHT ON LEFT
American Medical Association Journal: Tho well known fact that, when
using the eyes for any near work, the
illumination should come from the
left side rather than the right is often disregarded. Let anyone who considers the matter of little Importance
once 'demonstrate to himself the difference and he will never forget it.
Take a pencil and paper nnd try to
write wbilo In such a position that
thc Wght will fall from the right Bide
Tbe shadow of the baud or pencil, or
both, is thrown on the paper ln such
a way as partly to cover the characters one is making. The necessitates a
closer viewpoint and a conscious
strain of the eyes. Now let the position of the writer he reversed ho
that the light (alls on the work from
the left side. He w'lll notice thnt the
shadows fall away from the work he
iB doing and leave thc tield unobscur-
ed. In making the change he cannot
help but notice the feeling of ease
that immediately is experienced by
the eyes. This applies to any other
kind of near work in which the fingers work under the guidance of the
eyes. This fact should be remembered in planning school rooms, workrooms, oftices and any place where
steady  close work is to be performed,
SMALL MAN BEST
Edmonton Journal: Mr. Meighen in
his address the other evening made
an incidental reference to the ellorts
of Frederick William of Prussia to
secure an army of giants. He went
to extremes,! but the general idea of
the desirability of having tall soldiers has prevailed in most countries.
The British war oflice, when it lessened thc requirement in height thc other day, acttd in the face of tradition. It, however, has the support of
medical authorities. In a recent issue the British Medical Journal declared unqualifiedly that there was
nothing to be gained by mere size
nnd beefiness. In fact it believes that
the short man is really the better
military instrument for many reasons
not thut he has more pluck, but that
be eats less, weights less, and ) takes
less room. "The tall man" it points
out. "needs more calories in his
daily diet; the transport must be
bigger for an tinny of tall men. A
man ofl 5 ft. 3 ins. can shelter in a
trench better, shoot as well, offer a
smaller mark and keep himself warm
in a smaller space than a big man."
The heavier a man is the more food he
requires to keep up a given amount
of physical exertion. Other things
being equal a 12-8tone man needs
one-fifth more food than a P'-stone
man. The Japanese bave a distinct
military advantage over the taller
races in the transport and commissariat   departments.

Change is Effected
in Nelson Police force
On December 1 W. J. Devitt, chief
of .'police in Nelson assumed a similar
office In Rossland to take over the
ppsition made vacant by Thomas H.
Long, who has accepted tbe position
of chief of police in Nelson, to succeed Mr. Devitt.
Chief Devitt commenced his police
work on the provincial force in East
Kootenay in 1*>86, where he remained
until 18'J6, when he was transferred
to Rossland. From Rossland he went
to Trail, where in 1901 he was appointed chief of police, city clerk and
city assessor. This position he held
until 1!)07, when he waS(_ appoints
chief provincial constable at Nelson
with supervision over 23  officers.
He was largelv Instrumental in the
capture at Salt Lake City, Utah, of
Ccdio, the black hand bandit who
blew up a hotel at Niagara, near
Grand Forks, killing one girl and
wounding seven Cedto was hn.nged at
Kamloops after n trial at Greenwood
where he was prosecuted by Hon. W.
J, Bowser, attorney general. For his
work in this Instance Chief Devitt
was highly commended nnd was afterwards appointed to the provincial
police at Nakusp with the position
also of mining recorder.
Tale of Old Cabin
and Find nf Gnld
j
More than fifty years ago a placer
miner built a very substantial cabin
near the moueh ot Rock Creek. He
made adobe bricks and built a chimney with two fireplaces. The work was
well done, and the prospector had
evidently learned the bricklaying
trade. He also built a large cellar
underneath the building. For years
the building was used as a store. One
night it burned down all by the chimney. This was left standing, and as
the fire had changed the abode into
real bricks, a n;w building was built
around and to the standing chimney.
In 1--73 Price & Nicholson kept a
store in this building, selling all
Unds of goods for fur and gold dust.
They continually packed goods from
June to November over the Hope
trail. Price was fond of Bass' ale,
and so was the judge. In order to
satisfy th;ir desire for the amber
Hiud tbey imported 24 cases from
England in 1878, storing half of lt
at their store in Keremeos, and the
balance underneath the shop at Rock
Creek. One fine monning the Judge
heard a great crash, and making his
way to the cellar he found that owing to the rott'jn condition of the
uprights tha shelves had given way,
flooding the place with ale and broken bottles. Only six bottles were saved intact. This was a sad sight for
the judge and his partner. But let us
draw a vrfl over that calamity of the
early  days.
A man with a lantern was sent into the cellar to carry out the dead
marines,put in new posts and shelves
and sprinkle the floor with Florida
water. While digging a hole for a new
post he saw gold glittering in the
light of the lantern. He took a hand-
fuil and showed It to the judge. Mr.
Nicholson filled a pan with the dirt,
carrying the yellow stuff and washed
it in the creek. That was the lichest
pan of gold ever panned in Rock
Creek. It went $8.r>7 to the pan. The
Chinamen standing around became
excited and obtaining permission thev
cleaned up the cellar and secured $ 150
Pieces of rotten buckskin proved that
the find was a forgotten cache. The
gold was different from that found
along Rock Creek and evidently had
come from Idaho. Okanagan Smith,
of Osoyoos claimed the gold, saying
