capitalists who are undertaking the
placer proposition at Qoldhill.

"I Baw thc gas burning over a foot
:tigb, and a most interesting sight tt
was," said Hon. Thomas Taylor,
minister of public works and member
tor Revelstoke, on his return from a
special trip to Hall's Landing to inspect the gas field there. On his return to Victoria Mr. Taylor will
1 ring the gas possibilities te> the attention of the government witb a
view to having an expert report on
the field.
Mr. Taylor arrived in the city on
Saturday from tbe south where he
I.ad heen making u tour ot inspection. He left on Monday afternoon
for the coast. At the end of next
month he intends to make a tour
through the Atlin district aud will
probably visit Dawson.
At Arrowhead Mr. Tayloi was met
by W. R. Reid and was taken hy him
in B launch to Halls Lauding, Mrs.
Reid and C. Holten being with t'ae
party. Halls Landing is well known
ground to Mr. Taylor who was there
in ''J 1 and '95 and saw the gas then
loth at Halls Landing and higher up
the Columbia. A trip to tbe Laud
ing to see the gas demonstrated is
well worth W'hile in the opinion of
Mr. Taylor, who is also enthusiastic
us to thc agricultural possibilities.
At Halls Lauding the Hall brothers
I ave ISO acres aud their crops are iu
excellent condition, aud Mr. Taylor
looks forward to a time iu tbe near
future when prosperous farms will
stretch from Revelstoke to Arrowhead.
During Mr. Taylor's tour of the
Kootenay and Boundary districts be
observed everywhere encouraging signs
of progress. Conditions are thoroughly sound, he said and be never
before saw greater optimism. The
mining industry is everywhere showing progress and the old mines now
being developed are proving their
worth. In the Slocan where be was
accompanied by William Hunter, M.
P.P., he found the miuing industry
showing great revival.
The principal properties tbat are
now working are the ritaudard, Van
Roi, Hewett, Lucky Thought, Payne,
Slocan Stur, Ruth, Noble Five, Eureka, Rambler-Cariboo, Hartney, Apex
Lone Batchelor, Jo Jo aud Capella
The Standard is the biggest shipper and the biggest employer of labor employing about 2U0 men, and
shipping about "JhtlO tons of ore jer
month. The Van Roi employs about
Tii men and ships about 80u tons per
month. The Hewett employs 00 men
and expects to begin shipping very
soon. They have a large tonnage
1 locked out and when the mill is finished which will he in a few days they
will be making daily shipments.
The Lucky Thought is operated V>y
the Consolidated mining company of
Canada, employing Jn men and expect
from now on to ship about four cars
a month. This property is mostly
doing development work. Tbe Payne
people are mining a long cross cut to
tap the vein at a depth of about
ltlC'l feet below the old workings and
expect to get it any day now. The
Slocan Star is shipping at the rate
of a car a week of very higb grade
ere. The Noble Five is running a
long crosscut to tap the vein at a
depth of about 800 feet below the old
workings. This property has plenty
of ore in the upper workings but b^d
to quit working a couple of months
ago on account of the danger of snow
slides. The Ruth and Eureka properties are each employing about 20 men
and shipping at the rate of 150 tons
of ore a month. The Rambler-Cari-
too mines are employing about 25
men and are shipping about 100 tons
a month. The Hartney and Apex are
ut present doing development work,
running tunnels to tap their veins at
n greater depth. They each employ
seven  men.
There are  about one dozen  smaller

What  Revelstoke Children
Hope  to  Attain
A Revelstoke school teacher lately
conducted an interesting experiment.
She gave her cless a composition to
write on the subject: "What I want
to be when I grow up." The children
were in no way prepared for the subject, so that the compositions were
the expressions of the'r own thoughts
'1 he ages of the children ranged from
"J to '.i years. Twenty-two boys and
15 girls wrote.
The following table gives an analysis of the occupations:

Flaking   1
Fruiting   1
Medical Profession   1
Milling   1
Teaching   9
Dressmaking   4
Nursing   3
Stenography      1
You will notice that no fewer than
nine boys wanted to be farmers; a
hopeful sign for the agricultural future of Kevelstoke. Nine girls would
like to tie school teachers; and the
curious fact was brought out that
three of the nine wanted to be teachers and dressmakers at the same
time, showing how much children
take notice of the dress of their teachers.
Some wanted to have two or three
occupations and as a consequence got
considerably mixed. But one boy
had his scheme very well arranged.
He thought he would be a doctor,
ond while he was a doctor he would
have a ranch, he would also erect a
mill  and grind his grain at thc mill.
I expected to find more stenographers among the girls, but per*
laps the difficulty of spelling the
word thwarted the expression of the
truth.   The one     who did  try  wrote
"stenogrufer"  which says a little for
the phonic method.
Nine girls mentioned marriage as
if it were a matter of com Be; cer -
talnly not as a matter of ambition.
Five boys aspired to the blessed state
One little girl carefully stated that
she would bc an old maid "at tirst."
Another: "Then 1 will marry my
husband and then he will joiu the
Moose." A cautious little man wrote
"Then I will quit teaching and get
married and live In Victoria, This
is the end of my story." No little
maid, it iB only the beginning!
I have taken out a few curiosities
of expression, which, like the children
themselves, will help to make life Icsb
dull. One hoy wanted "to drive a
cow." A budding nurse wrote: " I
will take care of all tbe new babies
that come to the hospital and fix up
sick people." A hoy who would like
to be a locomotive engineer says:—
"I will he glad to ring the bell of
the   engine      and      toot   the  whistle.

Laboratories Limited, of Calgary to
', whom a sample of the gas had been
| sent.
!    The  gas is apparently  similar     to
| that   of   the Medicine Hat and other
valuable gas fields  of  Canada     and
the L'nited States.
According to the analysis the    Ar-
towhead     natural gas is    practically
the same as the natural  gas of    the
famous     Kansas,     Ohio and Indiana
fields.   The percentage of methane in
the  gas of  thc     Ohio  und      Indiana
! lields  is     93.60,   or    practically   the
same as in  the  Arrowhead  field.  Tbe
'chief constituent ot the Kansas nat-
; '.iriil gus is also methune in practical-
I ly the same proportion as at Arrowhead,  the  percentage  of  methane    in
Kansas ..-as being 9JL66.    ln  the   I ■ '■■
Insylvanla and     West    Virginia fields'
the proportion ol     methane iu     the
gas is "i0.8"> per cent.
Allowing for tbe five per cent of air
i in the Arrownead sample its analysis
shows that it is practically the same
■ as the Medicine Hat gas,  the Medi
"cine Hat gus being 9ftj  per cent  methane.

Rev. Dr. A. S. Grant, superintendent of Home Missions and Social
Service for the Presbyterian church
in Canada, appeared as defendant in
a suit brought by a fellow minister,
Rev. II.A. McRae. The action involved a gold mining claim in the,- gravel
beds of Bonanza creek, nnd had its
origin in a deal that the two men of
the cloth transacted at Vancouver
some years ago, when they were both
missionaries in the Yukon field. The
plaintifl declared that Dr. Grant and
be had been partners in claim No. '.'7
mi Bonanza creek, and that in 1006
the doctor hud sold the property to
the Treadgold company for 810,000,
falsely representing to him that the
claim had only brought $9,000 and
that lie was only entitled to S4,*iOH
from the sale. Mr. McRae, therefore,
asked $501 and interest from 1906.
This charge Dr. Grant repudiated in
bis defence, stating that the claim
bad been transferred to the company
in trust, that Mr. McRae had oflered
81,000 commission and that finally
there had been an agreement at Vancouver in 1011, whereby Mr. McRae
had accepted $325 in full of all
claims. The case may be settled out
of court.

Winnipeg, June 16.—Rail way men In
Canada are plucking up courage.
Tilings are beginning to move. Passengers and freight traffic are each
showing considerable improvement.
On the Canadian Pacific railway
this improvement is very marked.
The recent statement, by Sir Thomas
Shaughnessy that tbe country 16
sound to the core is every day being
more emphasized.
Local Canadian Pacific railway men
are confidently optimistic. "The
worst is over," they say. "Confidence is returning and we shall be all
tight in a jitly. Give us good weather and let the crop come on all right
and we have nothing to fear."
It is true thnt the Canadian Pacific is not undertaking any development work outside of finishing up
what was undertaken last year, but
there is some improvement work going on, and the general feeling among railway men is that business improvement will from i ow on be uninterrupted.

So  far as  quality   is concerned  the
natural   gas  of  the   Arrowhead    district  is evidently  ot  commercial  value, for the analysis of the sample of j
pas sent to     Calgary shows it to lie
Similar     to that  of    other  fields  in
Canada and the United States where j
natural  gas has heen  used extensive- ^
ly for fuel purposes.     The next thing j
to be determined is the volume   and |
pressure available.  That, can   only he
decided by sinking wells and this can-
DOt   he  done  without  expense.
There are' two methods by
•which the capital for testing and developing might be
obtained. One is through the co-
. .-ration of the people of the Revcl-
Btoke and Arrow lakes district, the
other by interesting promoters and
capitalists from other places. Outside capitalists would be chiefly con-
cirned in earning large dividends on
the capital invested. If the people
■who are residents in the district invest their capital in the. development
of the tield they would probably be
content with a smaller direct return
on their investment, knowing that
from cheap fuel and the progress that
would result all would reap vast indirect  benefit.

Sacrifice the west's interests if hy so
ll a it  ran score some partisan ad-
vantage.   The  uenate's   attitude    towards the Agricultural Aid and Highways  bills  was a  bitter pill  for    the
»est and now the Liberal senators in
their wisdom have decided to. rob the
v .st   of   additional   representation   in
the senate.
\',i one denies thnt the senate has
a constitutional right to review the
measures of the government and to
t eject or amend them, and so long as
/ts action is inspired by a rcgurd for
the public interest, however ill conceived, there would be little complaint, but the west certainly must
protest when it is made thc victim'
of mere  partizan opposition.
In regard to thc increase of representation of the west in the senate,
there was no attempt made to disguise the motive of Senator Dostock
and his supporters. The Liberal leader declared frankly that his reason
for seeking to postpone an increase
in the senate until after tbe next general election was that, if it is permitted now, the Conservatives would
1 e able to secure a majority in that
body, and if the Liberals should succeed at the next election, they would
be confronted by a hostile senate. So
that Mr. Bostock and bis party may
continue for a little longer to control
the upper chamber, the west must be
deprived of the representation to
which by the census of 1011 it. iH entitled.
Hegina this summer has been putting the clock forward and its experiment with daylight saving is of considerable interest. Thc predictions
that thc innovation would prove a
nuisance huve not been fulfilled, for
after a thorough test thc scheme is
generally approved. The Reglna Province and  Standard says:
"So far Reginn's daylight saving
experiment has been completely justified hy the event. The announcement that the daily economy on electric lighting expenses amounts now
to $10!" will bring the advantages of
the scheme more nearly home to citizens than the regular enjoyment of
the'additional hour of daylight in the
evenings, though the latter boon is
heartily appreciated. With it all the
business of the city goes on without
a hitch and the inconveniences which
were anticipated by many have not
yct proved so serious as to deserve
public notice. The summer Is not
over yct, but nt present it looks as
thoueh the hopes of the most sangine
were to be fully realized."

Member for Kootenay Optimistic on Return to Coast-
Railway Legislation
"The pendulum is swinging towards
a revival in business; there can be no
doubt nbout that. The commercial
and financial depression first made
its influence felt in the cast, and it
is thc east which Is now feeling the
stimulus of returning confidence. And
1 think it is not too much to say
that aid bills for the Canadian Northern railway and Grand Trunk Pacific railway passed by thc commons
are proving a great factor in the improved situation."
Such is the view expressed to The
Colonist by R. P, Green, M.P., member for Kootenay, at Victoria, on his
arrival from Ottawa, accompanied by
Mrs Green and his daughter, MIsb
Cecilia Green. Miss Green has quite
recovered from her late serious illness
which necessitated a trip to Germany
to undergo treatment hy a specialist
On her trip she was accompanied by
Mrs, Green.
"Yes," said Mr. Green, "there is
no doubt whatever that things are
en the mend in business conditions .
There is a more hopeful feeling all
through eastern Canada.
"The session of the commonB just
closed has been a strenuous one,
especially in respect to the Canadian
Northern aid bill. You are, of course,
familiar with the outstanding features of the long debate in the commons, but I might just point out one
important consideration thut ought
not to be overlooked.
"It is this—that both parties in the
house were in absolute agreement as
to the necessity for the government
coming to the rescue of a great national enterprise that found itself in
financial difficulties owing to the disturbed condition of the money markets of the world. Thus Mr. Borden
leader in the commons,and Senator
Loughced. leader in the upper chamber, and Sir Wilfrid Laurier, leader
of the opposition, and Senator Bostock were on common ground; but the
Liberals took exception to the nat -
ure of the bargain. They suggested
that a commission should bc appointed. This was a most illogical stand.
Had the commission been appointed,
t be very trouble which they admitted it was important to avert would
have been upon the country. There
would have been a panic long before
the commission could have made its
report, and this would have been calamitous. However, all's well that
ends well.
"1 am strongly of the opinion that
the lulls granting aid to the Canadian Northern and the Grand Trunk
i acific will go tar towards relieving
the tension which has .nail" itself felt
gbout the country for a considerable neriod. For the former line
the  bill  provides for $45,000,000,  and
Trunk Pacific gets

"I   am   delighted   to   be   abb'   to   tell
-,  ill    i Iso  that   in   respect   to   the ques
tion of Asiatic immigration, tin- peo
pie of Baatem Canada are con
ing  to see  eye  to eye      with     (iritinh
Columbia.    It    was   not   always  tiiuh.
We  know   that  in   the  past,  there  has
I een a   disposition   on   tbe   part        of
those  dwelling   in   the  eastern   prov -
, Ince to     take the position     that  we
(were a little narrow minded in     this
.matter.    That  feeling has  now    pass
led  away;      and  on  nil    sides,   in  the
press nnd  among the  people  general*
ly,  the  opinion     Is thnt the  Asiatic
menace  is     very real and  that      the
government is justified in taking the
sternest measures to cope with it.
"British Columbia of course, has a
special interest in the Redistribution
bill, which increases our representa -
tion from seven to thirteen members.
I leel in common with thc other members, that this is simply a measure
o' justice to this great province. Wc
will now be able to exercise more in-
i'uencc at Ottawa, be a larger factor
in the affairs of Canada, and get
greater recognition for thc big development enterprises which, in a country so vast in area, will constantly
be coming to the fore.
"In respect to the Seymour Narrows bridge, I was assured by Mr.
Borden and by Mr. Rogers that this
question will be approached on the
broadest and most comprehensive
lines. They recognize that the proposal to give Vancouver iBland all-
rail connection with the Mainland is
a national enterprise; and I can assure you that whatever action is taken by the government will bc in full
accord with the aspirations of the
people of Vancouver island, to whom
the  project  iB of such  vital moment.
"Thc action of the senate in throwing out the bill providing for Increased membership in the senate was a
j 1 iece of petty politics. The main
question involved was assented to by
both sides of the house, but thc senate suggested an amendment which
Mr. Borden could not accept. This
was that the bill should not be
brought into operation within the life
time of the present parliament. This
was probably done on tne ofl-chunce
that something would happen to restore the Libesal government to of-
lice, when the Liberals would, of
course, have the appointing of the
new members.
"The British Columbia members
were very glad to render their assist-
iinee in the matter of recognition of
tlie Boynl Naval Reserve force. Wc
feel that this will prove a move very
much in thc interests of thc young
men of the country.
"1 must add a word in respect to
the splendid work done for his constituency and the country generally,
by G.H. Barnard, thc member tor
Victoria. There is no more hardworking nor conscientious member of the
commons. He is at it early and late
nnd enjoys the respect, confidence
nnd esteem of the whole house. I
regret to say that this session Mr.
Barnard was somewhat handicapped
1 v illness. On recovering, Mrs. Barnard became ill, but happily both are
now recovered."
Mr. Green added that Mr. Borden,
whose government is more strongly
entrenched in the confidence of the
country than ever, will visit thc
coast shortly. His itinerary has not
yet been arranged.

Kamloops, B. 0„ June 15.—Dr.
1'urris conducted an inquiry this
morning into the death of John Mollis Allan, the Kamloops police con-
ftable whose decease on duty created
such consternation on Saturday last.
1 he coroner's jury comprised Messrs.
J.R, Michell (foreman), P. Riley, J.
McKinnon, K. 0. Duvics, W. C. Cow-
til and Aid. Tyrrnll.
The tirst evidence to be tnken was
that ol Constable Angus MacRury,
who deposed that on the morning of
the 13th inst. at about two o'clock,
he met Allan at the 1,eland corner
Allan asked witness to accompany
1 im westwards to investigate a sub -
picioua circumstance at the Brewery.
A window was open, he said, and it
looked ae if someone had been tampering with it. The two constables
proceeded down the street, and while
passing a shack nearly opposite the
site of the old Queen's hotel, Allan
t bserved the door to be a little hit
open, and drew MacRury's attention
to this. MacHury replied that it had
:>een like that when he last passed
in Wednesday evening— "However,"
added he, "I'll go in and see." Mac-
Kury entered the premises, Hashed
lis   light  in 8  couple  of  rooms      and
opened the door of a third room, lie
observed DO one, but noticed that the
trap dooi  leading to the cellar was
i pen.
Witness then rejoined Allan outside
who   said—"Have   you   searched   well,
"Yes," replied MacRury, "i looked
in three rooms hut no one would
stay in an old place like that anyhow."
The two constables proceeded a few
laces, when Allan peered in at a
window of the shack, and borrowed
MacRury'a electric torch. Macltury
also looked through this window. Allan said, "Well, Mac, I'm not satisti-
i.l. I'll go in again. You go along and
Til  be right down after you."
Allan then entered the building and
MacRury proceed towards the Brew -
eiy. Near there he turned to see if
A linn were following, and then heard
i. noise af- oi a door falling to. He
i iisbetl bark and pulled out his gun
thinking thai Allan was struggling
.•.ith      someone,    He   found   thc   place
i iteb dark and shouted out, "Allun,
are you there'" No answer was returned, hut a faint sound was audible
ae of Allan drawing long breaths,
MacRurj hurried to the next build -
Ing, that of Tony Uatremouille, from
v bom he procured a few matches and
«li"iti he asked to follow him to the
shack. With the aid of thc mutches
MacRury found Allan, who was lying
on his back unable to speak. Mac-
Hury felt Allan's head and chest; he
vas  then  breathing  his Inst.
Hurrying back to the next house
.'.H-Iiiiry sent I.atrcmoiiillc to telephone to the police anil the doctor .
He himself then returned to the shack
taking with him a man named Johnson who had just arrived by the
uirly morning train and was walking
westward. He then found out for the
first time what was the matter with
Allan tor on unfastening the unfortunate constable's tunic he found
blood, and when his other clothing
vim loosened bullet wounds were visible on his right side. There was also a bullet     wound on     Allan's left
wrist. Later Sergt. Notley arrived.'
and assisted in a BCarch of the apartment.
In answer to question by tbe coroner and the jury, MacRury declared
that he heard no shots, that he saw
no one, that everything wus quiet,
that a freight train approached as
he ran back to the shack, that he
had gone about MM) yards from the
shack und was absent about five minutes and that he found the trap
door hud fallen on Allan's right
After the testimony of Constable-
MacRury had been heard the evidence
was submitted of Messrs. Latremou—
illc, Johnson and Morton in corroboration, and then Ur. Archibald was
The medical evidence respecting the
nature of the injuries was to tbe effect Constable Allan was struck by
four bullets each with a slightly upward tendency. One of these struck
the left wrist, and passed along the
forearm, while another penetrated
from the back of the icft shoulder to
the left breast. The fatal shots w.ers
however, two passing from the leftside, both of which penetrated the
stomach, liver, and other vital or1-'
Sergt. J. L. Notley deposed that on
the 13th inst., at 2:28 a.m. he receiv—
(d a telephone message to the ■ ilert
that a man had been serioush injured on Main street opposite the Brewery. A train was passing along Main
street at thc foot of First avenue
thiB moment. Witness summoned Dr.
Archibald and then cycled to the
scene. On the way ho met Jack Norton who informed him that l'i nstabie
Allan had been shot and killed. A
search of the premises revealed four
shells for use in A 38 calibre automatic pistol. A slice of fresh bologna sausage wrapped up in puper was
also found in the room. There was
DO smell of pawder hut the shack had
a strong musty odor.
Chief Hothnie deposed to the find-
:, g ol the bullets, and the probable
direction of the various Bhots, declaring that, they could not have
ci.mc from outside, but must have
been tired from inside the room.
The jury commented upon the iact
that no sound of Bring was heard
I.y cither the neighbors or the police
constable although thc shots from
a heavy weapon had been discharged,
and then retired to consider tbeir
Subsequently the following verdict
was returned:—
We your jury empanelled tc> enquire
.into the death  of  John  M.  Allan do
! lind from thc evidence that the   said
! John Allan met his death    while    in
t'ischarge of his duties as a police officer ina shack in Main street, Kam-
! loops, known  as the  isolation1- hospital, on the morning of .Saturday, June
13,  lUlft, at or ubout the hour of two
thirty o'clock,  from  wounds inflicted
[ly the bullets fired     from   a thirty-
I eight calibre     automatic gun in the
I lands of a person or persons unknown
We arc of the opinion that this and
other such buildings within the city

forthwith nnd we strongly recommend
that the city council take action to
this effect immediately.

Notes from the chines
W. A. Williams, superintendent of
the Granby smelter, who waa called
to Grand Forks a few weeks ago owing to the ill-health of his wife, returned to Hidden creek on Saturday.
Mrs. Williams has now almost entirely recovered her usual health.
After a shut down of about a month the Whitewater has reopened this
week with a small crew.
After being shut down for nearly
two weeks thc Utica has resumed operations on a small scale, a small
crew going up this morning. Only a
few men cunibe worked at present, as
it is still an impossibility to get fresh
supplies up over the wagon road.
Now that the spring ia well advanced the Motherlode Sheep Creek Mining Co. has its Hi-stamp Merrill mill
again in operation, after three months' inactivity. Work was done at.
the mine all through the winter, so
that there is now about 0000 tons of |
.ire available for crushing.
The gold discovery of Thompson
and Merrick in the Cotjuihalla valley,
says the Hope Review, has attracted
many prospectors and upwards of
30 claims have been staked. Parties
are leaving Hope with supplies and
Work has heen resumed at. the Molly Gibson mine, Kokanee creek, which
