Enquiry Into Comaplix Fires Completed This Morning
—Thirty-eight Witnesses Examined During Week's
Investigation—Identity of Incendiary is Still Mystery
The commissioner remarked that he
could not remain longer than Saturday.
To Mr. Davis witness denied that
he had ever told Charles A.' Scott
that he knew who set the fires. He
never told anyone so. He had discovered nothing regarding the fires.
He was directing the operations > ol
the detectives. He did not know who
set the fires. He had discovered no

In the mass of evidence adduced little has been brought to light which
has a direct bearing upon the origin
of the tires. One witness swore to
having seen a Bhbrt person lurking
among the lumber on the night of

of a conversation with a Hindu who

Arthur     Gibson, mow living in Sil-

of the    April fire.   He heard barking
of dogs on the night of the fire about
10 o'clock.   He looked out     of     tbu
window.   He     saw     someone    going
round the lumber pile.   He did     noit

his face.   He was just across the road

round the  lumber  into the alleyway.
He     had . no idea who the man was.
; He  told several  people about  seeing
the man.
He was ine Comaplix at the time of
the October fire. He knew nothing
about the hose being cut. He had no
idea who cut it.   He did not cut it.
To Mr. McCarter: He did not know
whether the person he saw was a Ulan
or a woman.
To Mr. Housser: Most of the Hindus were short. He would not have

G. R. Lawrence, recalled, said that
the inventory of lumber taken by
himself and Mr. Leosch was to the
best of his belief correct. The auditor's statement!' and the proofs of
loss showed a discrepancy of some
l,00*,000e feet. The auditor's report
of December, 1913, showed that 1,-
25'O,C'C'0 feet had been written otl as
waste and Shortage. This figure was
ten times too large. When Gordon
Sutherland took the inventory in 1913
there' were two feet of snow on the
ground and the low lying piles and
the lumber between the piles wero
not included as they were covered
with snow. The lumber was in the
yard but it was Impossible to includo
i in the inventory. Tbe auditors
might have used the 1913 inventory
and calculated the amount sold and
manufactured since. He believed that
the inaccuracy of the I'iVi inventory
J was thc cause of thee discrepancy J)e-
I tween the auditor's statement and
the proof of loss. The figures for
wastage and shortage in 1913 were
11,100,CCO feet more than the figures
for wastage and shortage in 1914 and

City Unsatisfactory
The serious condition oi the city's
finances was discussed at the meeting
of the city council last night, lt Was
found that before the local Improvement debentures already authorised
could be passed it would be necessary for the city clerk to make a
sworn statement that the payments
to the sinking fund were not in arrears. At present .>Jl.,i' >i an- due to

passed that the finance committee
should interview the city's bankers
with the object of raising the amount necessary to obtain before the

the council discussed the possibility
eif necessity for closing the schools.
C. North, electrical superintendent
reported that the new unit had been
installed at 'the power house and had
been tested. The plant worked well
and developed more than the guaranteed power. It was possible to get
under the new turbine and Mr. North
said that logs less than four feet in
diameter would in future not put
the plant out of commission as they
bad done in the past. He did not
think that any sections trouble was
likely to be encountered In the winter
Thc cost of Installing the plant had
been well  within the estimate.

The frequent outbursts of vituperation of the government from Liberal ji.jliticians and Liberal newspapers
give an indication of the strain imposed by the political "truce" in
Dominion politics upon the repressive
powers eef many ardent Liberals. The
Kamloops Sentinel feu- instance, despairs of th tentral inland health resort" being converted inte. a great
military camp during the coming
•winter and, notwithstanding the
"truce," gives vent to its ariimosity
in violent condemnation eef the militia department and all Its works.
Such outbursts indicate that the
violence e.f partlzanship is not diminished but is merely partly concealed by the theory of ;t jiolitical truce.
A general election would act as a
safety valve tor political feeling and
in this way might do more good
than harm. If opponents nl the government had a full opportunity oi
getting everything they have t.e say
oil their minds they might afterwards
feel more inclined t.. sink party differences and to give genuine as well

the, preface to the famous pamphlet
"The Crisis iu British Columbia,"
was unworthy of a body of .ministers.
He said his brother ciergy had not,
in his' opinion, called attention to
the root of all the trouble.
The secret was that the people had
not lived up to God's tenets, said
Rev. Mr.'' Thomas, and as long as
they refused to enquire of their souls
and to strive for more community
life, present conditions would remain.
Taking for his text Isaiah 53-6:
"All we, like sheep, have gone astray
we have' turned everyone to his own
way; and thc Lord hath laid on him
the iniquity of us all," thevpreacher
delivered an impressive discourse.
"Isaiah's policy was not to ' de*
nounce hut to awaken iand arouse tho
people to a sense of their wrong doings and the problem which faced Israel is not a solitary case. At other
periods the same conditions arose
and from similar causes. The cause
ia that a fundamentally wrong spirit
existed in the rank and file and any
change "f heart must, come from each
and everyone of us and not from a
catalogue of fifty names." I
It was at this point that Mr. Thomas said:
"The 'Ministerial Union sent forth
a preface utterly unworthy of a body
of ministers."
proceeding, he declared:
"We lind ourselves as a province
torn with various feuds. We won't
talk to each other. We are eager for
recrimination. We are a disintegrated unit. We have evolved a type of
civilization which eliminated the spiritual: i
"The crisis in British .Columbia
consists ot| the inevitable disaster
which comes to a people who forget
God and worship Mammon. There is
no difference betweenIthe man who
held ten thousand acres for unearned
increment, which the nation has to
pay, .and thc man who held a twenty-five foot lot. for the same purpose.
Even the churches did not cry out
against ibis practice because Bplendid
revenues were to be obtained."
Rev. Mr. Thomas deplored the attempts of the various parties' to
blame their opponentsi with the conditions to be found today.
"Those men who try to turn into
party gain the great wealth of spiritual rejientance are a public .menace'
he said. "My quarrel with my brother ministers is that they have "not
called attention to the springs Which
caused the trouble. Men can not sin
and then escape evil results. Neither
can nations and there must be a radical change of heart; we sinned because we saw not—and now we Bee.
We saw not because we would not
stand and think and tlie result 'is a
burden on the nation we love, lf you
