Time To Save the Life of
Fellow Man
A story ol more than usual interest
is mid in connect iun with an accident
wbicb occurred in a logging camp
some fifty miles up the Big Bend. A
logger named J Rebel wbile splitting
wood fnr tbe cooking stove and oamp
lires by accident allowed the axe tu
divert (rom its oourso, that implement
Splitting bis foot right (l.iwn the middle mine than half way back Irnni the
tucs. 8uch incidents are not rare in
luggers' experiences but it was the
manner in wbicb Kebel was brought
tu the city that gives puint tu the Story,
The other luggers hastily improvised a
turniquet and, placing tbe injured
man upon a stretcher with » team
brought bim uver a lugging trail to the
canyun nf tbe Columbia up to which
puint there is a passable road Irom the
Here it was thought that an auto
ambulance could be secured from tbe
oity and a hurry telephone call was
sent in fnr one Tbe proprietor ol the
local auto livery refused to jeopardise
his machine by driving over the rough
road and olber means of conveyance
bad to be found. An old raftsman
named Neilson set to work to construct a raft aud in the course of a
couple of huurs had one made to his
satisfaction. Calling to hi* assistance
and oompanionahip another logger in
what might prove to he a perilous
journey the injured man was placed
on board the rait and the ancient
means of river travel was pushed off
iroiu sbore.
It was then that the furious drive
begun. Tlie Columbia at this BeaBou
uf the year is swollen and is a raging
torrent of Unions (low. Neilson, without hesitation bad taken bin life in his
hands and as far as was within bi?
ability to navigate his strange crali
resolved to see her through On
rushed the mighty torrent and swept
on tbe bosom of the leaving tideB on
swept the rait. Swirling pools were
negotiated, deep and stiller passages
were crossed, but the swiftness with
which tbe raft moved along may be
judged when il is stated that the risky
ride from the canyon to the city a dis
tance ol 36 miles was made iu an hour
and a half. Tbe raft nearing the city
was brought alongside the public
lauding like an ocean liner with an
apparent ease tbat surprised the on-
lookerB. Such a (eat as the above
narrates must be rare in the annals of
British Columbia navigation ami all
honor to Neilson is due ior his heroism
and for the skill of bin navigation.
A team was iu waiting at the landing and Kebel wan taken to the hospital where his wounds were dressed
by Dr.Hamilton. The patient is reported to be doing well.

C. P. R. Passenger Train Held j
Up by Thugs near Ducks on
Monday Evening—Held Re-'
volver at Engineer's Head
I'nr the third time in  five years a C. i
P. H. passenger train has been held up
In liritish Oolumbia,  nnd the two last j
limes the attempt was made in almost
the same  place.    According tn the
-laii'inent nt' the crew some live ur six
men armed with shut  nuns and revul- |
vers beld up  No.  HT westward bound
on Monday night between Ducks and]
Kamloops   In   very   nearly   lhe same I
-pot   a- that in which the notorious
Hill  Miner  made his last bold coup.
Nn. I'7 pulled Into llevelstnke in twn
lections nhiitit seven o'clock nn .Mniidny evening. Al this point the two
Sections were joined and nil extra
engine  put   nn   tn pull lhe train up In
Notch Hill. li..in there 11 went on
with the single engine down the grade,
and was running aboul two hours late,
which made il aboul 11 o'clock iu
i eachlng Jiink-.
The i r.i in waa huw ling along smoothly, when Engineer Matthew Crawford
noticed a man crawling over the tender. \ second later the man wae
down In the engine cab pointing the
cold end of a revolver at Ofawftird's
In-.iil. "Keep tjulel nml keep going
till you i nun-tn ii  lire, nnd  then stop
bel.      was   the   iiilllinilllil.     I'l.lU'lolil
was imi  Inclined to argue with are-
vnlvei nn (be I'litk, but did ns be was
told and pulled the engine up where a
Wood lin- was biasing near the side nf
the truck.
No sooner bad the train stopped
than three or four other armed men
-pinng up from around ibe lire. One
jumped up on the engine with a revolver in hia hand ami one or tun
others stationed themselves on either
side   of   the   train, .unl lired ulT guns
and revolvers with the evident Intention nf intimidating the passengers
and keeping them inside. Thii wae
the eil. inn-iiini'i' ibai apparently gave
rise tn the lirst iiiiiiiii ihni the robbers
had gone through ilu-) passengers.
Most of the passengers were sleeping
and aroused by the sudden salvo ol
firing wondered whether they bad
bumped suddenly nut nf theli dreams
Into a real live imi tie. Naturally they
were not   much  Inclined to leave the
ears to investigate.
in the meantime une or twu robbers
bad entered the mail car, but evident*
ly they had expected something dUfei
ent, for after a short search tbey de*
elded to leave tbingN as tbey were,
mid muttering ounes on their ill tuck,
called oil the rest aud all disappeared
in the uight. tt was very fortunate
tbut the express car containing valuable packages und silver bullion hail
been sen! nn ahead un No. 6 from Hevelstoke, as tbis was evidently what the
robbers were looking for.
It is known that Monday afternoon bu bricks uf silver bullion
went through on the St, Paul Seattle
express, and it is quite probable tbat
some rumor of specie in transit had
reached the robbers, and Imagining
that it was gold or at least something
tbat cuuld he easily handled, Ihey had
determined to hold up the train, Certainly had they known the nature uf
lhe silver bullion il is hardly likely
I bev would huve attempted tu hold up
to secure it, its it. wns shipped in bars,
eaoh ul which weighed about eighty
pounds, und il. wuuld have been almost
Impossible to carry it away u all, and
still more dillicult to gel rid of it
without detection afterwards. As it
is the hold-up proved a mere Rash in
the pan. Nu one was injured and
nothing was stolen,
I'p tn yesterday afternoon tbo O. P.
H. local officials bad received no definite description of the robbers, nnr
was it stated whether tbey wore masks
or not. Nn doubt prompt search will
be Instituted, and as the country lying
to the south of Ducks and Kamloops
is open mid rolling, the chances of
capturing the outlaws should be guud
if no time is lost.
Many penple nre naturally asking
whether Bill Miner was concerned in
this last hold-up. Certainly it is on
his favorite stamping ground, and
those who know him assert that it is
just the kind of trick he wuuld be
likely tu du because of lhe spice of
during in it, Une resident of Kevelslnke says that be was in Kamloops
when Miner was sent away to the
Provincial penitentiary nl Now Westminster. One of the locomotive engineers then called him "Bill .Miner,''
though be disowned the name and it
evidently aroused bim.
"My name's George Edwards, young
man," he remarked, "and maybe the
tune will come when 1 shall ride on an
engine with you yet."
The narrator of the story was wondering whether I he hold-up on Monday
nigbt was planned by .Miner to carry
out bis facetious lineal. Wbile there
nre these possibilities, however, tho
probabilities would seem to puint ihe
oilier way, since ii hardly appears
likely that .Miner, whu was last reported lu lie in Australia, would run
bis neck into a nose by repeating such
an experiment in a country where he
is known to every police officer and by
many citizens whose law-abiding instincts would scarcely prompt tbem
io shield him, though there are doubtless others who would do so.
The first train robbery ever committed iu British Columbia, if not iu
Canada, happened in the Fall of 1001
at iSilverdaie near Mission Junction,
when the through train was held up
and a great deal uf valuable registered
mail and guld dust was taken. The
secuiid, like the third, a fruitless
experiment ns far as the robbers were
concerned, occurred in 1901 in very
nearly the same spot as the last. It
resulted in Ibe capture of Bill Miner
nnd two companions ".Shorty" Dunne
and Calhoun. Miner nnd Dunne were
bulb given life sentences, bill the former made a sensational escape from
llie penitentiary about a year later.
Calhoun was sentenced to thirty years
11 is rather a remarkable coincidence
that Conductor Elliott who was in
cbaige of the train held up three years
ago was also in charge uf the train
held up ou Monday night.
Premier and Minister of Public
Works will be Entertained
A meeting uf the executive uf the
Conservative Association was held last
evening to arrange for tbe reception
of Premier McBride and Hon. Thos.
Taylor, Minister of Public Works, who
are expected to arrive here from Kootenay on Saturday afternuon, aud will
remain in the city till Sunday eveu-
ing, when they will take the train lur
It was decided that the reception
should take the form uf a smoking
concert, to be held in the Opera
House, to which all citizens arc to be
invited, irrespective ol political af>
filiations, ll was further resolved
that tbat the occasion should be
seized upon to express to tho Premier
their appreciation uf his choice ol
Kevelstoke's representative Ior cabinet
rank. Mr. W. W. Foster, who presided, announced that the baud and
the Opera House had already been
secured. Committees were struck to
perfect arrangements, and no effort
will be spared lu give the premier and
Hon. Thus. Taylor a hesrty and nonpartisan receplinn.

five others inppled nver Into the dltcb.
The names ol the men killed have not

Inquest will be held when something
more will he learned about them.
The train wns an extra westbound
freight iii charge of Conductor A, .McCullough with A. Kenwood, engineer.
Nunc of the brain hmids were hurt.
The budies of the men killed were
pulled out of the wreck soon after the
accident. The injured man it is understood was taken on to the hospital at

with a wrecking gang,.and the work
was prosecuted energetically until the
obstruction wns removed. By the

Man Who   Stabbed Frank Or-
setti   Not   Yet   Captured
Accomplice  Arrested-Case
John Sheldo, the llaliau railway
laborer who is wanted by the local
pulice Ior the attempted murder ol
Fred Orsetti on Second Street east last
Friday night was yesterday afternoon
still at large. Chief of Police Bain,
however, received a telegram yesterday
morning saying tbat Sheldo had been
Been riding in a freight car eastward
bound through Rogers Pass. The
Chief has wired all likely points ain ml
and the chances aie that the fugitive
will be captured before very long. He
was recognised on the freight train by
by a C. P. R. road foreman under
whom he had worked. He had drawn
his pay before he attempted to
commit the crime, and it was evident
that he was prepared to leave at unco.
The fact thut he has been employed
on construction work by the C.l'.K.
and knows well the country through
which he is travelling may make bis
capture a little mure dillicult, but he
is easy of recognition and the police
have every cunliilenee that he will
finally be captured.
Another Italian named Joe Falzett0
who is charged with lieing accessory lo
the crime   was  al rusted by Provincial
oiiiccr Kington on Monday forenoon
and by him banded uver tu thu city
police. His case came up (or bearing
belore l'i.lice Magistrate Foster yesterday morning. Mr. llriggs, city prosecutor, asked fnr an adjournment [ur
six days, which was granted. The
reason given lur the adjournment wns
that the police are desirous of making
further Investigations befure proceed*
ing nl   greater length.     Mr. (iillan is
appearing lur Falsetto.
Fal/.etto was said to have been hid
ing in the bush belore his arrest, but
it is alleged that on Monday morning
about ten o'clnck he ventured   out  t
get his pay check.    Provincial Offloer
Kington happened to be nt the C.P.K.
freight sheds at the time, and on seeing I'nl/.etlii, immediately placed him
under arrest.
Orsetti, the injured man, is able to
be around again, though he has a lung
and nnf!y gash ill his llirnat. Fnrtu-
nntely the knife struok the bony part
nl the throat and did not penetrate
far, Hud it slruck iu any other place,
the enlist'plenties wuuld almost surely
have been fatal, and  Falsetto would
be wanted now 00 a charge nl murder.
Thn motive (ur the attempted assassination bas nut yet been   explained.

that ol perpetuity of title to timber
lands. Those men who are paying
to the government an annual
licence of $1 In per square mile on
tlieir holdings in the interior, anil
$140 on the coast, are naturally
anxious to know whether they are
paying fur something or nothing.
Whatever may be said to the
contrary, the big sawmill operators will not purchase lenses and
erect mills without some assurance
of continuity beyond the present
twenty-one year term. The modem
sawmill plant means large expenditure of capital ; it means the installation of donkey engines, log-
ing railroads, skitlways, Humes
and chutes in the woods; anil, in
the mills, carriages, slides, sawing
maohinery on a mammoth scale,
powerful engines to drive them all,
and ready shipping and transportation fur the finished product,
Everything must be solid and
permanent, so that on his enormous
initial expenditure, the large opera-
tor'may look fm- returns in the
years In come,
That it is tu llie interest uf
British Columbia tu have its
timber industry thus developed,
who can doubt. It means profitable noise antl the cheerful bustle of
human endeavor among the now-
barren silences of Hie wooded bill-
sides; it means the creation of new
business centris antl the development uf existing unes. Its results
will bring added oapital tu the
merchants, the railways ami wurk-
ingmen; ami, furthermore, it will
insure tn liritish Columbia lhe
possession of that mighty ami expanding market in the prairie provinces which can be captured and
held only by the promise of a
varied, continuous ami high class
supply. With all this such a
policy would not lead to indiscriminate slaughter uf timber, hut
would encourage careful selection
with a view tu preserving a supply
fur years tn come.
kets be applied with the products of
lhe cheapest ami most ellicient form
nf power. We have passed through
the steam age, and are now entering on she age of electricity, and in
ils manufacture there is no cheaper
or belter agency than waterpower,
antl of this no country in the world
possesses greater abundance, than
British Columbia. Nor is it weak
and intermittent, lis streams Uow
down from high altitudes giving
them large head. In the winter
they are fed steadily by rains or
days of melting snow, and all
through the summer the snow
peaks again send down their stored
up strength. Thus there will be
an avalanche ever pressing against
the wheels of industry, and the
snow peak a reservoir of fertility,
becomes also a fountain of industrial power.

It may safely be asserted that
the morals of the people of Kevelstoke are of very high order with
respect to the observance of the
Lord's Day Act. Nu recreations
are indulged in, not even by the
small boy. The quiet of the day
is unbroken by any shouts of belligerent baseballers or racketing
tennis players. This speaks well
for the many young men who might
otherwise indulge in such practices.
lt may be that the reason for this
lies in the fact that Kevelstoke lies
inland far from the American border, from which such games are usually steered,but we prefer to believe
otherwise. Several uf the coast
cities were invaded with organized
learns ui baseball players, and, fur
a time, tolerated these. Inu the
demoralization of such a ruurse
soon became apparent, North Vancouver, Nanaimo and L.uly-mith,
all had to put their loot down and
stop the games. Happily then- L-

The Circus Trouble
The following reply to tho Polici
Commissioners letter which was published in unr last issue has been handed in for publication. Included with
it is tlie Police Commissioners' letter,
and Sergeant Terry's statement:
Revelsluke, June 11, I'JU'.I
W. W. Foster, Esq.,
Police Magistrate,
Hear Sir,—1 have been instructed by
tlie Board ol Police Commissioners to
usk you to write to the Hoard, stating
your reasons for engaging special
police without consulting either the
Chiel of Police or Commissioners; und
also your reason fur sending Police,
engaged by yuu, to Calgary on city
Vouis truly,
(.Signed;       Bruce Lawson,
Secy   I'oliee Commissioners.
Kevelstoke, June 18, 1909.
'I'u Whom It .Mav Concern:
The. statement having been made
tlmt I lelt the Revelstoke Police Puree
by reason ol the interferonce of the
Police Magistrate, either with ine ur
lhe members of tlie loroe, I beg to sny
the statement is absolutely untrue in
overy wny.
(Signed) P. W. Terry.
Witness;    H .1. Carroll.
RevelBtoke, June 19, 1909.
To the Board of Polici: Commissioners, Revelstoke Citv:
Gentlemen,—Replying to your Iei ter
of the 18th inst., and the statement
made at your last meeting tbat displeasure at some uction of mine wus
partially tho cause of Sergt. F. W,
Terry leaving the City force recently.
1 submit the following facts covering
briefly tho course I adopted in dealing
witli the infringement of law by the
Norris A Rowe circus company, so
that you can see exactly what took
1. Throughout the day, Saturday
June 5th, the circus company adopted
an attitude which indicated tbey wore
under the impression they could violate the laws relative tu gambling and
liquor selling in the most flagrant
manner, and without interference, in
oneol tho statements I took, the informant stated that he wus a luser of
a cimsideiable sum of money reported
his loss through tlie use of gambling
devices to tlie Mayor—who is incidentally tlie chairman ol your committee
—during llie afternoon, and was informed that lie, the .Mayor, wuuld try
and obtain restitution, and on this
account, aud nut until after the circus
hail left, and the promised restitution
was not forthcoming, did be—the
complainant—lay information belure
me in the proper manner. I was given
uther statements, when tuo late for
net ion, that gambling of Uiis nature
was openly allowed throughout, and it
wns reported early in the afternoon to
the Mayor yet, not until alter the circus had left the city, nnd then only
through private complaints, was information laid, and transmitted by mo
to llie R.N.W.M.I'.
2. Saturday evening aliout 22
o'clock, 1 tuuk upon oath, statements
as tu illegal liquor Belling, substantiated by nn less than nine witnesses,
supplemented alsu by a Btatemeut as
to quantities ut liquor being brought
uver frum the liniled Slates in violation ol the law, the said liquor being
stored iu a car maintained us u bull ul.
In addition tu suiuinuniiig the proprietors, I also directed twu ut the
police ollicers ul this tuwn tu search
this oar number eight, and seizo and
hold tu iny order any liquor found
therein. This warrant the ollicers
proceeded to execute, und, but lur tho
illegal and unwarranted interference
of the chiel executive of the city, iho
mayor, who also by bis action made
the ollicers amenable to a certain
clause ol ilu criminal code, the liquor
wuuld have been sci/.ul uud   held.    In
the police oourt proceedings you will
lind   the   following   statement made
under oath ol Ollloori Terry and Upper,
"Had it BOl been lur the inlorloronoe
of Mayor Lindmark your Instructions,
as ciiiiiiiini'il in the Hciircli warrant,
would huve been carried out." Resulting Irom ibis Interference, which was
su much in tbe interest ol tlio eircu.-
coinpany, the ullieiory aftor ounsulling
together, withdrew, and the cur with
ils eunteiits, together with tho owners,
whom I hud summoned, loft tuwn.
;i. On Monday morning at It) o'olook
the disc wns called, the defendants
wore represented by the city aolioitor
ol this city, who hud iilsn acted for
Ilium tlm previous Saturday livening,
and a lino ul P00 wilh the costs ol
the oourt   ImpoBedi    Thin   line the
cily  solicitor, noting in the capacity
ul council lor tbe defendants, promised
tu try und collool, but, up to 13:80 tba
same day tbere wss no evidence (hat
it wus forthcoming, in the meantime I had Interchanged several messages with the superintendent Royal
North West Mounted Police, witb tin,
objeot nl enforcing collection, or in
default distress, ur the alternate
ponalty ol live months imprisonment,
before the circus lelt Calgary, ns in
viewol Un-fact the car ami contents
lunl bei n allowed to leave the town in
violation if my instructions, there
wus nothing here upon which to levy.
Ii.iring the afternoon the superintendent i I tin X.W.M.P. wired me
thut he could not take delinite action
until my warrants reached him, and it
then became necessary, in fact compulsory by law, to send down an
ollieer who could authenticate my
[signatures thereon, Shortly afier receipt of this message, and linding Mr
liriggs had not the fine forthcoming
OB behall cf his clients, i went to the
Police Station to see Acting Chief
Terry. Ollieer Sturdy, who was there,
could not say exactly where Mr. Terry
was, uud 1 remained at the station
whilst Ollieer Sturdy went out t
locate him, but lie returned unsuccessful, 1 also phoned Ollieer Upper
who had served the summonses for
ine the previous Saturday and knew
the defendants, telling him to come
to the station, and Mr. Sturdy also
located Acting chiel Terry by'phone,
Uutli ollicers came to the station
together, and I explained to tbem
what was required in order to enforce
the penalty I hud imposed, Tbe
Acting Chief did not niise any objection to the proceedings proposed, as a
matter of fact Special Ullicer Upper
was tbe only ullicer who could be used
as the defendant to be served with the
warrants was personally known to
him; but, it was surmised at the time,
and has been subsequently confirmed
to mo by the objection raised by the
.Mayor to pay the city's proportion ol
the expenses of the trip, that oppo
sition would be met with in the
collection of this fine, just us we had
experienced it iu the preliminary proceedings, (rum the very source where
opposition sniiiild ut least be expected
in such matter, and lieing determined
this penalty Bhould he enforced I
personally advanced what money was
required for expenses.
I. Ullicer Upper left (or Calgary the
same evening and upon arrival was
advised by Superintendent Deane of
the R, N.W M.P. tu proceed to Medicine lint, which he did, and there
gave the defendant the choice of paying the line ur arrest, and be preferred
the former.
5. In this case throughout we have
had tu contend with obstruction to
the law, instead of co-operation on tbe
part of Civic ollicials paid and sworn
to protect its, the City's, interests, und
I particularly ask you to note, thut
had there been nu iuterlerence with
the ollicers, 1 detailed to execute the
search warrant in the lirst place, there-
would never have beeu any necessity
to send a regular or special ollieer out
of the city to enforce the penalty
In presenting the foriguiug statement tu yuu together witb tbo subjoined letter froin Police Ullicer Terry,
I must express my regret that you
have made it necessary fur me
to expuse (nets which cannot but
he distasteful tu the citizens uf this
tuwn, and further that it has alcu
become necessary fur me to draw yuur
altenlioii to tiie fact that your hoard
is lining Usui iu an attempt tc divert
ihe real issue, and make it appear
that there is or bus been in connection
witli this cuse or otherwise, some
(riciion betweeu the police force ol
the ciiy and myself—which is ahso-
lutelyiucuirect. However, should yuu
desire in the public interest this communication supplemented in any way,
I shall be pleased tu hear (rom you.
I bave the liuuor to be, Gentlemen,
Yours faithfully.

ui St. Ann's college ol  agriculture   ill

At tin present time, Alberta and

In all probability the decision  will  he

in British Columbia.
At. the present time the province
has jfound  it  necessary   tu   import   a
number ol graduates ..I these eastern
Institutions to act in connection with
the department oi horticulture and
agriculture. In the event ol British
Columbia students taking the course

Suspect   of   Horrible    Crime
Sought for On Train
Mostof the readers of the Mail-
Hlkai.ii are probably aware of and
will re in em ler the details of an atrocious crime committed in New York
recently when a wuman's body was
found in a trunk iu a badly mutilated
and badly decomposed condition. Tbe
deed was known to have been committed by a Chinaman, though some time
lias elapsed since the crime, tbe elusive
Chinese successfully evaded both
capture and identification.
It developed on Monday tbat a telegram had been received by the local
C.I'.R. authorities that the criminal
was on board No. 7 heading for Vancouver and probably tbe Celestial
kingdom. Word got out, however,
and there was a posse at the station to
look into the caBe. The local or city
police had had nu notification of the
incident excepting by street rumors;
they had no authority from an American city police authorities to arrest
the alleged murderer: tbey bad nu
description of the man and none of
them was prepared to make more than
a cursory examination as to the truth
of the rumor.
Ollieer Kington tor the provincial
police went through the train which
was hauling several carloads of Chinamen, but as above stated there being
no means ot identification nothing
could he done, lt bas been suggested
that perhaps the Vancouver police
have more delinite information and
that an arrest may be made at tbe
Terminal City.
Americans to Build on Co-Operative Plan
WlKSlPEO, Man., June 22.—Because
he was unable to induce any of the
railroad s\steuu to build a line north
and south through Saskatchewan,
" Farmer" Mines, ol Hannah, X.l),
has decided to do the work himself.
He uow has bis arrangements practically complete aud promises that
actual construction will be commenced within a few weeks. For
several iin-utlis past he has been selling stock in the company, each farmer within ten miles of tho route to be
taken by the railway being allowed a
$ lUU share for every quarter section be
owns. This may be paid fur either in
cash or work. The bouds ol tbe company have been guaranteed by the
Saskatchewan government so this
energetic American bas all the capital
required to build tbe first section of
the line.
Tbat he intends to tap the richest
wheat raising country in Saskatchewan is apparent by the plans which
have already been tilled with tho department of railways and canals at
Uttawa. The initial construction will
be between Region and Melfort and
from there the line runs through
Watroiis and from thence to Prince
Albert, the country arouud Watrous
beiug a veii table Harden ul Eden. The
line will pass along tbe side of the
wonderful mineral lake near Watrous,
giving a direct line from North Dakota to tliese medicinal waters. Prince
Albert and Rcgina will not be the
terminals of this Hue if Farmer Hinco'
plan- are fulfilled for it is bis intention
to extend from Kegina southwards to
lluluth and Irum Prince Albert to
Hudson's Bay.
He intends this line to be a railroad
for the benelit ot the farmers and
owned entirely by them and in order
to provide against any coutrolling
interest he has made the stipulation
regarding the purchase ol stock. He
is most sanguine over the result ot bis
canvas for stock and Iccls assured a
portion ot the lino will lie in operation
during the present year. When the
main line is completed several
branches will be built and Irom ono
end ul the system lo the other the
company will own and operate its own
elevator system.
