No Further Progress Made in
Murder Case Yesterday.
LaPohte, May 15.—Little apparent
headivay was made towards solving the
mystery of the 14 deaths thus far discovered on lhe farm of Mrs. Bella
Guiness. While little doubt remains
that Mrs. Guiness either alone or
aided, killed the ten persons whose
bodies have been unearth'd in the
barnyard, there is still no definite
evidence aa to wbo, if anybody, slew
the persons found in the ruine of the
burned farm house. It 1* not even
definitely ei tablished that the burned
body is that of Mrs. Guiness.
There was the usual grist of letters
today relating to possible victims oi
Mrs. Guiness. The most plausible
came from a merchant of Osage, Kas.,
but the description of the missing
man, Emil Tell, is faulty. Discussion
of the reported statement which Dr.
Schell was said to bave made io Baltimore was general about LaPorte today. "I never received any intimation
from Dr. Schell regarding the conversations which he held with Lamphere,"
said Sheriff Smulzer. "My suspicions
were aroused against Lamphere aa a
consequence of lhe troubles which he
had with Mrs. Guiness. He pleaded
guilty to charges of trespass the first
time she had him arrested. He made
threats against her and she feared the

Starving and Frozen
Giki.I'H, May 15.—Lying in a barn
in a horrible condition, his body
wasting away tor lack of nourishment,
a man wae found near Rockwood thi-
afternoon. He was removed to the
Guelph general hospital and everything possible has been done to save
his life. His.legs have to be amputated at the knees and the operation
may prove fatal ou account of the
rundown and starving condition in
which he was found. He gives the
name of James Kennedy, of County
Kerry, Ireland. Last June he came
to America to visit a sister in Buffalo.
After staying tbere a short time he
began wandering abuut the United
States and Canada in search of work.
During one of the cold snaps last
winter the lower portion of his legs
were frozen. He was unable to give
them any attention, and not realizing
his condition, did not have his feet
attended to. His legs had been getting worse, but still he tramped on
till ten daya ago, wheu, from utter
exhaustion, he crawled into the barn,
evidently resigned to death. Uangrene
had set in. During the ten days he
had been in the barn he had nothing
to eat but a turnip and a drink of

Location of This Year's Camp
Will be in Vicinity of Glacier
House—Accommodation for
Two Hundred.
Details of the third summer camp
ol the Alpine club ol Canada have now
gone forth to the wide and widening
circle of tbe Canadian Alpinists who
rejoice in the motto, "Sic itur ad
astra." The camp is to be pitched on
tbe actual summit, of the famous
Rogers Pass, 4,351 feet above sea level,
or about half a mile weat. of the
Rogers Pass station on the C.P.R. In
scenery and general character the Selkirk range is different from that of
the Rockies. The rock formation of
the former is of a much older date,
whilst owing to the heavy precipitation thn permanent snowline is at a
considerably lower altitude. For the
same reascn the forest growth is of a
tropical luxuriance. In July the cloud
effects of the Selkirks are at their beat
and the varied contrasts of timber, ice,
enow and rock, which then present
themselves, crowd the memory with
beautiful pictures. Immediately surrounding the pass are Mounts Mac-
donald, Avalanche, Cheop and Tupper.
All these peaks provide splendid
climbs. Mount Tupper haa only once
been ascended and is accounted one of
the stillest climbs of the whole system.
Rogers Peak and Swiss Peaks are to be
the oflicial climbs. Two days will be
devoted to tin se climbs, one nigbt be
ini» spent at the C. P. R hut, situated
on ibe timber line at the southern
slope of the group. The Rogers amphitheatre, over which climbers will
pass, contains magnificent illustrations
of the action and coroding powers of
glaciers. Bear creek, flowing through
a distinctive valley close to the camp,
is full of huge rock falls and is a
favorite haunt of the marmot or
"whistler." Mount Sir Donald, the
mountain of moods, will probably be
ascended, whilst a daily party to the
lllecillewaet glacier will also be arranged.
The wonderful Asulkan valley will
be visited and a glimpse of the famous
Deutschman caves in the Cougar
valley will likewise be afforded. Many
other excursions offering features of
special interest and great natural
beauty will be arranged.
"From Tuesday, July 7, to Tuesday,
July 15, the camp is to be open and
members will be permitted to arrive
by the afternoon train, July 6, Those

will pruvide for the transportation of

station, but they will not provide this
accommodation in the case of Glacier
Provisions will be made for 200
campers, application being registered
in the order received. All members
belonging to honorary, active, associate
or graduating grades may make application. Tbe same applies to duly
accredited representatives of literary
and scientific societies, the leading
papers and magazines and also to professional photographers, all of whom
will be given the Dame rates as active
With regard to charges, active members and those in the same status, will
pay $2 a day for camp accommodation.
Graduating members who qualify for
active membership will also be charged
this rate. All others will be charged
!$3 for each day in camp. No camper
will be allowed more than 40 pounds
weight of baggage, and neither trunk
no. boxes will be handled. Those using saddle ponies on the different excursions will be charged $1 pet day.
Heavily-soled leather boots, well set
with nails, are iudispensitde. Knicker
bockers, puttees, sweater and soft hat
are recommended as a serviceable' costume. No lady wearing skirts or
bloomers will be allowed to take a
place upon a rope, as these garments
have been found a source ol danger to
the whole party. Knickerbockers, with
puttees or gaiters and sweater, have
baen found serviceable and safe. In
the way of outfit the camp authorities
recommend two pairs uf blankets
weighing about 15 pounds, a small pillow, a change of clothes and boots and
toilet articles. Members ate recommended to supply themselves with
snow glasses and drinking cups,
Swiss and other competent guides
will beat the disposal of the camp. It
is hoped that the C.P.R. will as before,
grant special rates. In any case, however, excursion rates to the Dominion
fair at Calgary can be bad and from
Calgary tbe camp will only be a ten
hours' run. Nomination slips for membership and general information can
be had from the secretary of tbe club,
Mrs. H. J. Parker, 160 Furby street,
Winnipeg, or from the secretary of the
camp, C. Wheeler, Box 167, Calgary
A general meeting of tbe club will
be held on June 2, in the office of the
president, poet office block, Calgary,
to deal with a reci nt vote on certain
changes in the constitution. The
club's annual meeting for election of
officers, however, will be held during
the camp, as was done last year.
C. P. R. Mountain Hotels Enlarged and Improved.
What promises to be one of the
most prosperous seasons ever experienced at Banff, has now practically
W. Danforth, manager of the C.P.R.
hotel, has arrived at the mountain
resort from the east with a staff of 108
and opened the popular hotel to tourists and others on Thursday.
For the past two or three weeks the
Sanitoriiini, which is open all the year
round, has been filled nearly everyday
with tourists, principally from New
Zealand and Australia. As a rule
visitors from the antipodes usually begin to arrive at Banff in advance of
those from other parts of the world.
1. is reliably reported iu Banff that
next year's C. P. R. estimates will provide (ur renovations, alterations and
additions to the C. P. R. hotel] at an
expense of about $2,000,000, and when
all are completed HanIV will be able to
boost ol one of the most magnificent
hotels in all Canada
It is fully believed that if the proposed improvement, were curried out
the business which would result would
fully justify the immense outlay because for the past two or three years
thousands of tourists Ins v.- In en un
able to secure the accommodations
they desired, and thousands of others
have been unable to secure any at all.
Many improvements, principally at
tlio Lake Louise Chatlet, were carried out during the Winter months.
The big event of the Summer in the
Selkirks will be the meeting of the
Canadian Alpine Club, near the Glacier House, early in July,
No Free " Puffs."
A Western editor has come to the
conclusion that the people who desire
"puffs" in his paper must pay the
following prices: For telling the public that a man ia a successful citizen
when everybody known he is as lazy as
a mule, $2.75; referring to adecoasid
citizen as one who is mourned by the
entire community, when lie knows he
will only bo missed by the poker circles, $1.08; referring to some gallivanting woman as an estimable lady whom
it is a pleasure to meet, $3.10; calling
an ordinary pulpit-pounder an eminent divine, 60 cents; sending a tough
Binner to heaven with poetry, $5.
