Warm Feeling Over tlie Affair in Salmon Arm
—Investigation Asked
James R. Thompson, a constable in
Salmon Arm, baa been committed for
trial by two justices of the peace in
that town, on the ground that he unlawfully secured the discharge of an
Indian from custody. The Indian had
been sent to gaol in connection with a
liquor selling charge, without any
papers authorising Thompson to hold
lim, and on the advice of Rev. John
McDougal. superintendent of Indian
art'airs, he was released. According to
the Salmon Arm Observer there iB a
great deal of indignation in the town
over the sending ol Thompson down
for trial. After the court was held a
public meeting was called, and a petition to the Attorney-General drafted
and signed hy 80 citizens asking for an
investigation of the case.

Father McKinnon's Race With Death from
Rossland to Trail
NELSON, B. C , July 23.—Father McKinnon, the earnest and popular pastor ol tbe Catholic church, had an
exciting and sensational race witb
deatb and won by a very small margin
on Wednesday morning. An employee
ol the Trail smelter, named Amicon,
fell into a tank ol sulphuric acid, He
was so badly burned tbat it wsb evident he would live only a tew minutes.
Tbe unfortunate man was taken to tbe
Trail hospital and it was decided tbat
he should receive the last rites ol tbe j
Catholic church
Father McKinnon was communicated with by telephone and told ol
the urgent necessity of haste in order
to reach tbe dying man before tho
spark of life had fled. Hurrying to
Henderson Brothers' livery, he asked
for the fleetest horse in tbe stable.
Oregon John, a racehorse, was ; laced
at his disposal. A moment later he
he was hurrying toward Trail, seven
miles away.
When Oregon John reached Queen
street he tried to run away and went
about as last as he could out through
the city limits by way ol a new road.
Father McKiunou kept partial control
ol tbe mettlesome animal as far as
Floyd's ranch. At this point Oregon
John bolted lor good, descending the
slopes with Ihe speed of a bird.
At a point between the Catholic and
Anglican churches tbe horBe swerved
to one side and the result was that
Father McKinnon was thrown bo
heavily on the roadway that he was
badly bruised and shaken up.
In a moment he was ou his leet nnd
in a few seconds later he was at the
bedside ot the dying man. He had
won tbe race against death. The last
sad rites ol the church were administered to Amicon at lliSO and three
minutes later bis spirit passed away.
Father McKinnuu found that nis
journey Ir^tn Rossland hud been made
in the remarkably short time ol nineteen minutes.

British leronout Attempts to Cross Bhannel
But Drops Into Water
Calais, France, July 27—Hubert
Latham's ill luck pursued him to-day
when he made a second attempt to
cross the English channel in bis
aeroplane, and once more was hurled
into the water far from shore.
After repairing his machine, which
met with a minor accident this morning, Latham started to cross tbe
channel at 6 o'clock this evening, He
was within two miles ol the Dover
shore when bis machine plunged into
the waves.
Latham had a similar experience
several days ago when he made bis
lirst attompt lo cross tbe channel. At
that time he made only eight miles in
his machine before the machinery
broke and the flight ended  in   failure.
Thousands of spectators cheered
when Latham left tho French coast in
bis machine to-day. He darted out
ol sight in the clouds and it was
thought be was about to repeat Blier-
ot's feat of a lew days ago. Soon word
waB heard bere tbat tbe aeroplane bad
dipped iuto the waves when it was
nearly across tbe channel.
Before starting on his flight this
evening Latham announced bis intention of proceeding to London in
bis machine il he succeeded in reaching tbe Dover cliffs.
Boat s were strung across the channel
when Latham made his flight to-day
in order to rescue tbe aviator in the
event be met with some such accident
as that which actually occurred.
Woman and Her Iwo Sons Have an Exciting
Rossland, July 26.—MrB. Gill, who
resides in the Big Sheep valley, and
her sons, Walter, aged seven, and
Portland, aged nine, had an exciting
adventure witb bears one evening
recently. While picking huckleberries a short distance Irom home,
Walter looked up from a bush and,
much to bis astonishment, he aaw|
only three or lour feet away, a large
brown she hear standing up and glaring at him in a threatening manner.
The little fellow, displaying much
bravery, and a total lack ol caution,
threw his tin bucket in the bear's
lace, scattering tbe berries all over her
and at the same time calling lor bis
mother. Mrs. Gill ran to Walter's
assistance and pulled him behind her.
Portland, the other lad was also
placed behind his mother, who picked
up a rock and laced the bear, who bad
two cubs hidden in the bushes only a
fow feet away.
Tbe hear stood in a threatening
attitnde waving her paws, growling
and showing her teeth. The situation
was broken when the hoys began to
cry in alarm at the savage attitude ol
the animal. Thin in turn caused the
cubs to whine and howl. The bear
thinking that her cubs wero heing
menaced, got down on all lours and
hurried towards them. Mrs. Gill and
her children took advantage of this
diversion in their favor and made lor
thoir home as last as thoir logs could
carry them.
" For a moment," said Mrs. Gill,
when afterwards recounting the adventure, "the situation waB a torrily-
ing one, as a she hear with cubs is a
very dangerous animal to encounter,
especially when thoro is nothing
bettor on hand than a rock to defend
oiio's se I with."

The experiments in electric smelting made  Ly  Mr. Eugene Haanel,
Ph. I'., director ol the mines branch
of the Dominion government, some
time ago at Sauk Ste, Marie, have
heen followed in Sweden by the
building of an electrothermic fur
nace on a large scale for commercial
purposes. It is believed there, after
watching the experiments of I>r.
Haanel in Canada and testing the
matter themselves, that by the application of electricity anil charcoal, iron ore can be smelted more
economically than with coal.
The result "j this commercial
venture in Sweden should be carefully watched by all who are interested in the minerals of British

If tlie ore could be
melted there by power transmitted
rom a hydroelectric plant, it
would lm a comparatively easy
matter to transport the smelted
product to centres of manufacture
of which Revelstoke might easily
become one.
Kor this reason the venture in
Sweden should be closely followed,
comparisons of the cost of production and marketing there and here
obtained with a view to inducing
capital to embark in similar enterprises in British Columbia. The
furnace already built there seems
at least to have finally settled, once
and for all, two important factors
in the problem of electric smelting.
It has shown tbat sulphur can be
eliminated from the bath down to
a few one-thousandths of one per
cent., and that coke as a reducing
agency enn be satisfactorily replaced with charcoal. This menus
that here in liritish Columbia high
.-ulphlir antl refractory ores can be
smelted in regions where coal fuel
if not available ur its price is prohibitory by reason of the long antl
dillicult hauls necessary to carry it
to the ore bodies.

Should anyone read this who

France is agitating itself over the
remarkakle decline in the birthrate.
Prof. Chas. Richet, of the Academy
of Medicine, Paris, proposes a eys-
tein of bonuses for children, the
bonus growing as the number of
cliililren in one family grows that
is, while lhe parents get nothing
in consideration of the lirst child,
they get $100 for the scond, .$200
for the third, and so on.
We trust that the Canadian parliament will take up the Professor's
propos tion and put it in force in
this country, to the end that at
least a normal birth rate may he
established in Canada. We are
particularly anxious to see Canada
move in this matter for the manager of this paper can now qualify
for at least $1000 of the good coin
of the realm.

Plucky Flight of French Aviator
Wins Him Much Fame and
Money-Crosses Channel In
Half Time of Swiftest Ships
DOVER, July 20.—Louis Bleirot, a
Frenchman, on Sunday morning succeeded in crossing the English channel in an airship.
This Bleepy seaport town experienced the keenest thrill known in a generation when a white-winged, birdlike
niachiiicwith loudly-humming motor,
swept out Irom the haze obscuring the
sea toward the distant French coast
and, circling twice above the high
chalky cliffs of Dover alighted on English soil.
Bleirot, portly, and retl-moustachcd,
calmly descended from the saddle,
limping on a bandaged foot, which
had beeu burned on the passage over.
Immediately two compatriots, who
had been waving a hig tri-colored Hag
as a signal for the landing place, fell
upon him, enthusiastically embracing
him, shouting and pounding him in
the back. They,, with a lew soldiers
and others who happened to be on the
scene, were the only persons to witness
tbe linisb of a remarkable feat.
Bleirot left Les Barreques, three
miles from Calais, about 4:30 a.m, on
one of the smallest monoplanes ever
used. He cmssed the cbennel in a
little less than half an hour, twice as
swiftly as the fastest mail boat. His
speed averaged more than 45 milea an
hour; sometimes it approached 60
miles. He kept about 250 leet above
the sea level and lor about ten minutes iu miilchanuel was out of sight
of both coasts and of the French torpedo boat which followed with his
friends aboard.
The wind was blowing about 20
milea an hour autl the sea was choppy.
The aviator was swathed in a single
garment of drilling impervious to the
wind. This garment covered bim
from head to loot, only his lace bIicw-
ing.    He wore also a cork lifeboat.
By hia achievement Bleirot won the
prize ol $5,000 offered bv the London
Daily Mail for the lirst Uight across
the channel, aud stole a march on his
rivals, Hubert Latham and Count de
Lambert, both ol whom bad hoped to
make the attempt to-day.
Bleirot described his remarkable
light very modestly.
" 1 aroBe at 3 o'clock," he said, "and
went to the aeroplane shed. Finding
everything in order for a trial spin, I
decided to make the flight. The
French torpedoboat-destroyer which
was in attendance was signaled and
it put out about lour miles.
" Then I rose in tbe air and pointed
my monoplane directly for Dover.
"Alter ten minuteB 1 waB out ol
sight of land and had. left the warship well behind. For a few minutes
I could not Bee either coaBt or any
boat. I tried to keep at an average
height of 250 feet. I might easily
have gone higher, but it would have
served no purpose. This was about
the rigbt height, I thought, to clear
tbe Dover cliffs safely.
" Tbe machine dipped towards the
water several times. I put on more
petrol at once. I estimated that the
propellers were going about 1,000 to
1400 revolution a minute.
" The first objects 1 saw were ships
off' the English coast, then I observed
Dover and I discovered that the wind,
which was from the southwest, was
carrying me thither. I veered to the
southwest tu Dover castle and then
saw friends flourishing a llag in a
valley suitable lor landing. I made
two circles while lessening the speed
and then dived down, but I came in
contact with the ground sooner than I
expected. Both the machine and
iniMelf were badly shaken up.
"A lew persons quickly assembled,
and I was helped out, BS my injured
foot wiih painlul. I am exceedingly
glad to be here."
A Sad Wedding Day
Few sadder ciibcs have come to our
notice lately than that ol Maggie
Bloomer a Toronto girl who went to
Sheboygan. Wis., to be married to
Barry Cleveland whofhad scut her $30
to pay the expense ol her journey.
The wedding was to take place on the
night alter hor arrival.
When Miss Bloomer arrived at Sheboygan she could not find Cleveland
at tho station to moot her and explained hor dilemma to the police. An
officer guided her to Cleveland's address, and there it waa found he had
died of a sudden attack of heart failure.
He had a considerable sum ol money
in tho bank, a bullae furnished Ior the
wedding, and all arrangements oompleted when death struck him down.
Miss Bloomer oame without funds
except what be had sent hor, and had
no acquaintances iu the place Cleveland had drawn a will leaving her
everything be possessed, but the estate
OOUld not be settled until other relatives wore hoard from.
