Tramp Held for C.P.R. Train
Robbery Not Likely Person
—Sent to Kamloops—Pursuit at Ashoroft Fruitless.
Asiu.'KiiK'i', July 7.— i'|)e posses
of police and citizens who have
been out searching for the murderer of Constable Ike Decker have
all returned to town tired with
their fruitless hunt. They admit
that the man musl have got away
safely from this part of the country
now. A number of the Mounted
Police have returned and the search
now will .be left largely in the
hands of the Provincial police and
secret service men.
A man named Isaac Olsen, suspected ol being one ol the gang tbat
beld up the C.P.K. train at Ducks, was
brought in here by Constable Upper
on Sunday eyeniog and banded over
to tbe care of Chief Bain. Upper
picked the man up at Buwle, about
twenty-five miles west of here, from
which place he received a telegram
(rom the C.P.K. agent saying that
there were twu suspicions looking
characters around. UUen, however,
looks by no means a formidable bold
up man, His cloihiug ia patched aud
ragged aud dirty, a scrubbing briiob
whisker is spread over his cheeks and
chin, and his hair is towsled and unkempt, lie wears a No. 8 hat and
looks on the whole like a faded specimen of the Weary Willie rather than
anything else.
He was brought up before Hubert
Gordon, the Government Ageut on
Monday morning, charged with vagrancy, but by mpiest of tbe Chief ol
Police, a remand of two days was
granted. The chief said that Provincial Coustable Kington was out at
Bowie now investigating, nud he did
not wish to proceed till be returned.
Mr. Gordon pointed out that biB
jurisdiction as stipendiary magistrate
only extended to the county of Kootenay, and as Bowie was iu Yale, he did
not tbiLk it came witbiu his province.
He granted the remand.
Olsen speakt. with a Swedish accent
and was brought iuto tbe police station
in a very scared condition. He said
tbat hall a dozen men had gut after
him with guns and he could not tell
what they wanted. No weapons were
found on him.
Provincial Constable Kiugton lelt
on No. 97 yesterday altemoon lor
Kamloops, taking with bim the prisoner Isaac Olseu, win was arresttd ly
Constable Upper at Bowie au a C P 11
robbery suBpect. As Olsen was arrested
iu tbe County ol Yale it will be necessary that his case should be heard
belore a magistrate in that county.
He denies all kuowledgeol tbe hold-up
and from his appearauce tbe local
police think he is a very unlikely
person to be implicated iu anyt lung of
lhat kind. He will be handed over
to tbe Provincial authorities at Knin-
has h?eti out of town sinco. Sundny, it
has not yet been fixed.

Sicamous Hotel Robbed
A report comes Irom Sicamous that
the BeMevue Hotel at that place,
owned by Mr. Congreve, was entered
on Saturday uight and $15 ukcii out

them in any way.

Stranger Commits Suicide in
Local Hotel—First Tried to
Cut His Throat, then Strangled Himself.
With gashes in his throat and a
blood-stained knife beside bim, a man
who hud signed himself as .). McGinty
ul the Windsor HoU-1 on the previous
day, wns found hy the proprietor this
morning, hanging by a noosed necktie
from one iif the posts of bis bed. Life
was quite extinct, nnd us the body was
stiff und there were signs of mortification in the members. It wus evident
Unit tha deed hud been committed
some time before.
The man appeared at the Windsor
Hotel yesterday morning nnd signed
"J, McGinty," on tbe register, but did
not murk down nny address. He went
around quietly through lhe day,
bought a small Husk ot whiskey in the
afternoon, and went ti) his room about
nine o'clock in llie evening leaving
word that he was to he called at nine
ni'uin the following morning. When
Mr, Hanbury went to cull him he got
no respone uud on opening the
door found llie man lying on
the bed with his whole weight
lightening the noose in a stout
necktie which he hud wound round
his neck and attached in u knot lu the
top of one of the iron bedposts, lie
lay In his night clothes in u reclining
positi.i i with hi.s whole weight on his
neck, und it wns evident that he had
lain thin and strangled without making nnj attempt to lift or save himself.
On one side of his throat were several
cuts, apparently made with a blunt
knife, He had evidently acted with
deliberation, for the knife covered
with blood, hut clasped again und laid
aside as if useless, was found on the
table beside him.
Mr. Hanbury notified the police, who
cume and searched his effects. In nne
pocket wus found a pnckel containing
the pictures ol a little hoy und u little
girl, und it is inferred from this that
he was probably a married man, and
these were his children. He wore a
hat bearing the name of a Vancouver
dealer, and hejind on a new suit of
clothes, though judging from his
hands he wus evidently a workingman,
He was a man of about thirty-five
years of age, of light complexion and
wearing a sandy moustache, lie wus
of medium height and rather stoutly
built. No clue to his real name or
Identification could be found. It Ib
generally thought that "McGinty" was
nn assumed name.
Tbe body was removed to Howson's
undertaking rooms. Hi. Hamilton
will probably hold an Inquest.
Record-Breaking Airship

An open meeting of  tbe Trades and

night for the purpose of making preliminary arrangements for the cele
bration ul Labor Day in llevelatoke
The Labor Day committee which
handled the celebration last year, has
turned over its business entirely to
tbe Trades and Labor Council, so thai
all arrangements Ior the present year
are in their bauds. The Council,
therefore, called to the meeting on
Saturday night representatives from
all labor unions and unattached bodies
ol workingmen in the city. There
was a goud turnout, and considerable
enthusiasm was shown iu lavor ol a
The celebration will probably bo
along the same lines aa iu limner
tears, though with one or two new
features. There will lie a parade,
sports, and tlio Opera llouae will be
secured lor the evening when an address befitting the occasion will be
given. The aim will hu lo make tbe
day educative as well as recreative.
No «lmuling ciiinniit ii-i-K have yet been
appointed, us it is considered that
there ia still ample time lor that. As
Labor Day does not come till the lirst
Monday in September, it is thought
that a meeting held about lhe first
week in August will give plenty ol
time to get down lo the practical work
ol preparation, In the meantime preliminaries arc pretty woll in the hands

Mr. P. Parker, secretary ol the Trades

To no country in the world will
tin- perfection of aerial travel bring
greater benefits than tu British
Columbia Hire where Suture hits
scooped and grooved out the passes
through tin1 mountains in sueh
lung drawn sinuous way- thut a
man mu-i often travel twenty
miles where the crow llies hut une,
it means the annihilation of distances und tin- economy of time.
To the aviator of the years to come
it is safe to say the rocky ramparts
that divide the settled valleys of
the province will prove 110 more
obstructive than the ruck sunk
deep beneath the sen does lu the
voHsel pluwing through the waters
above.     The time will cume when
peaches plucked fresh from the
tree in Okanagan will he lauded in
Kevelstoke freeh for the noon
day meal, aud the ranchers of
Revelstoke will be able to send
back their later (strawberries lor the
slipper tables in Vernon and Kelowna, when the crop has heen
gathered in the dryer and hotter
valley. People then will be hound
hy no trammels of gravitation to
swelter in tropical heat, for in a few
moments the wings of the aeroplane would land them in the
region of the mountain snows.
Much of this may seem visionary
and impracticable even today, but
when we consider all that science
bus accomplished within the last
half century it becomes not even
improbable. There are those not
yet in middle life who would have
scoffed in their youth at the idea
of sending messages pulsating
through the viewless ether, or tbey
would have laughed to scorn the
man who would say there could be
a light so powerful that the bones
in the body might be seen through
the clothes and tlesh. while pictures that move and sing would
huve seemed wilder than a wizard's
dream. Vet today all these and
many things more are in practical
use. They are not experiments or
will o' the wisps that llicker for a
moment und disappear. The citizen of the twentieth century can
from the privacy of his own home
converse witli a friend 11 hundred
miles away; he can read by lightning tuineil and chained; lie can
hear the phonograph sing. When
so mucb bus heen accomplished it
is not visionary or impractical to
suppose thut with tin
already made in lhe art of aviation
the day is not fur distant when the
arriers that now make communication in British Columbia often
so dillicult and slow, will be overcome, uml with the advantages of
Bcenery, uml   waterpower   timber
a year or two hence, the site of a
thriving town. In ten years the
city of ten thousand may grow to a
hundred thousand, but there is no
ollicial record hearing the Government stamp to mark the change.
The result of all this is that investors in other lands, who would be
willing to purchase debentures and
securities or establish industries
amongst us have no official data as
to our present Btatus, on which
they can rely. Quite properly tbey
refuse to accept newspaper estimates of population and wealth,
since these ure as varying as the
winds und often as unsubstantial.
The British investor is particularly cautious, but the red tape and
the ollicial seal will do more to
dispel his fears than anything else.
If he can be assured that the
growth of population and wealth
within a country is such as to insure safe returns from his money,
he will not tesitate to invest it.
In that way alone, apart from any
sentimental satisfaction, tlie trouble and cost of a quinquennial
census would lie well repaid. An
ollicial count of population and
resources once in ten years in a
country where more changes are
wrought in a single decade than in
a cycle of Cathay, is all too small.
Baseball and Lacrosse at Armstrong on Dominion Day
Following are the details of tie
lacrosse and IniHelnill matches played
hy Kevelstoke teams at Armstrong on
.Inly 1, asdeecribed hy the Armetrong
Promptly at IU the lirst game was
ealled, it lieing the basebal matcl
between Enderby and Kevelstoke. Thi
double umpire Bysteni was adopted]
with the best of satisfaction. The
score tells the tale; costly errors on
the part ol Kevelstoke accounting lor
the large number ol runs; the earned
runB were made only on the (ith and
8th inniugs. The tenuis were not
unevenly matched, but Hancock's
superb pitching was too much tor
Kevelstoke; in seven innings Revelstoke went out in 1, 2, 'A order; not
only was Hancock invincible, but he
bad magnificent support; the gnme
was a grand one, lull ul sunn and
ginger. Davie and Berry knocked out
three-baggers just when needed and
they got no end ol applause for them.
The last innings ol Kevelstoke was
intensely interesting, the lirst man up
struck out; Haucock walked Mclnerny', Conrad singled, sent Mclnerny
to 2nd; Scott sacrificed, advancing
both runners, leaving them on 2nd and
third; Lung, the third man up, had
3 balls and 2 strikes, and for four
successive balls fouled; Hancock's
next ball was a puzzler and Lang went

Dr. K. Montizamhert, Director
General of Public Health for the
Dominion, wants a campaign
against indiscriminate kissing. The
doctor has been young himself ami
has no objection to the kiss of love,
as he evidently thinks the warmth
is BUllicient to destroy any microbes; hut he does object to the
advanco|use of the kiss as a means of greeting between women, and thinks
t hat less indiscriminate kissing of
babies would lessen the danger of
the spread of tuberculosis.

A British Columbia Dooley
One ol the returned holiday makers,
who had resumed his place at the
table, t.ild uf a trip annus tin hound-
less prairie, '''hey were talking about
the illimitable stretches uu wbicli
thousands were yet. to Iiud homes and
independence One member of the
company, a son of Erin, said: "Gin-
tlemen, ye/, think this is a big country. Just wait till yez get to British
Columbia. Shure, that's the biggest
country iu the wurrld. Av Uritish
Columbia was all spread out flat loike
Manitoby and Saskatchewan and Al-
herty, it wud Iill the whule av the Pacific oceau. Why, to make room for
British Columbia it had to be rowled
up, and crumpled up and humped up
into great big mountains rachin' to
the sky. An' lhe moiiutaius had to
be made on a moighty big scale to
make roum for the gold, and the silver
and the lead, and the copper, and the
coal, that they're fairly crackin' and
buRtin' wid. An' the rivers, wait till
yez see the rivers I Tbey had to be
big to make room (or tbe millions av
salmon that are crowd.n' in eager to
settle in the interior ov the country.
" I suppose you men Irom Ontario
think ye/, know something about
trees ? Wait till yer, see the trees. It's
a nice marnin's walk round some av
them. An' they have to climb the
trees wid ladders to cut them down.
An' the lish! Giutlemen, Oi'ui a bit
av a westerner myself, and I can tell a
good yarn, hut ou ine honor, Oi could
not lie about the lish no matter how
hard Oi tried."
"Yes things are built on a moighty
ginerous teale in   British  Columbia.''
Keep Cool
The hot weather ia now with us and
the lollowing rules published by the
New York Herald duriug the recent
heat wave there may prove ol interest
at tbis time.
" Dress lightly, eat sparingly, eschew
alcoholic stimulants, keep out ol the
direct rnys ol the sun, don't worry,
keep your temper, and you will keep
cool. Dre-s should be light in color
aB well as in weight, and such as to
permit the body to perspire freely
through all the pores. Perspiration
gives vent lo the internal fires. The
body when perspiring parts with three
times as much heat as when the skin
is dry. To ijuickly check perspiration
is dangerous, and its sudden involuntary arrest is always a bad sign. Meat
once a day is amply Butliciedt, and the
diet should consist chictly of cereals,
milk, eggs, vegetables and fresh or
cooked fruits. Any man that takes a
drink of whisky in winter to warm
him knows that alcohol is not cooling.
Tipplers are most liable to sunstroke
or heatstroke. The best drink is pure,
cool—but not intensely cold—water.
With temperance in eating and drinking, light clothing and a placid
temper one can pass safely and comfortably through the hot wave."
Famous Glee Club Coming
The Central College Glee Club ol
i'ella, Iowa, will ha heard in the Skating Kink here tomorrow uight. There
are thirty one members In the ciub,
and their performances iu different
parts of the United States have been
warmly praised. They are now on a
tour ot Western Canada, and the people of Kevelstoke will be fortunate in
having an opportunity to bear tbem.
They have teen singing recently at
Seattle during the Exposition, and
their presence has been appreciated in
various wayB, as the following extract
from a Seattle exchange will show
"The Iowa Society ot Seattle gave a
reception last evening at the Archibald Hotel, at which 600 were present.
The famous Central College Glee Club
ofPella, Iowa, were present, and sang
several selections, which were enthusiastically received. The club numbers
thirty-one persons and travels in a
private car.''
Negligence and Robbery
An Ottawa exchange has tbe following to say about the recent train robbery:
"Our friends, the train robbers, are
getting very busy in British Columbia.
Time was 'vhen the train bandit did
out dream of plying his trade on the
Canadian side of the boundary line.
of late word seems to have gone out
tbat, after all, Canadian law is easy,
and one robbery succeeds another,
The inference is very strong that il
Bill Miner bad not lound his way out
ol New Westminster penitentiary so
remarkably smooth, the popularity uf
tbe train robbery habit would not be
so great. The whole episode ol his
escape wears a most suspicious aspect,
and tbis new hold up serves to emphasize it. The circumstances in connection with the British Columbia end of
the escape were moBt extraordinary;
the looseness of the prison discipline,
tbe indulgence extended to so desperate a criminal, the irregular interviews which he was allowed to hold,
the way in which his escape was prepared by allowing bim tu grow his
hair and moustache, the strange delay
in notifying Ottawa, all have a most
unfortunate, nut to say sinister aspect.
Prairie Population
The estimate of the Bureau of Census and Statistics is that on May 31

A Pioneer Judge
His Honor Judge Spinks will preside at the sittings of the County
Court in Grand Forks and Greenwood
this month. He is making a farewell
trip through his old circuit previous
to his retirement from the bench,
owing to ill heulth. The judge's old
circuit comprised all the territory in
Yale   aud   Kootenay.    Most   of   this
territory was covered bycayusespeoial.
That is, the Judge furnished his own
riding equipment. Any rancher, prospector or cowboy along the route
would furnish a fresh mount, usually
very Iresh. The rest was lelt to the
Lord, the judge and the cayuee
Sometimes the judge arrived a lew
hours early, and a little informally,
and at others a lew hours late, but the
judge and the cayuse always arrived at
tbe same time. Fifteen years ago
County Court sessions were less
formal iu the Boundary than they are
to-day. There were no lawyers, no
gowns and very lew boiled shirts. The
lirst court at Kholt's ranch, now Midway, was one that will never be forgotten hy the old-timers. The judge
was coming through Irom Vernon to
bold Court at Osoyoos and then un
to Midway. A number ol cases had
been entered, many ol them by com
mon consent, to make the court a
success and to teal the judge's legal
knowledge. All the prospectors aud
other residents oi the distriel were
present on court day, and there was
every prospect ol a very successful
session, hut unfortunately, the judge
was late. There was a salcon iu town,
and time wore on and no judge. Some
one had an Inspiration ami suggested.
Others suggested. Someone had a
grudge, and bit. Others hit. When
the judge and the late Charles l.amhly
arrived, two days late, they found the
litigants and their friends lull—and
the docket empty—Oreenwood Ixidge.

Buffaloes at Cranbrook
At nine a.m. on Thursday morning
a train ot liltei'ii cars loaded with
buffaloes arrived at Cranbrook from
Montana enroute for tbe National
park at Battle Creek. Tbe herd was
in charge of Mr. Howard Douglas,
park commissioner, and H. C. Mc.Mul-
len, general live Btock agent of the C.
P.K. The buffaloes were watered and
led here, and were viewed with great
interest by several hundred people.
The herd consisting ot 119 burtalo
will be unloaded at Wainrigbt and
with former shipments ol 411 will
make 530 that have been received by
die Canadian government thiB year.
The task of rounding up the animals wae a hard one, several men being
injured and a large number ol horses
killed in the attempt. The rounding
up ol the remaining herd will be commenced in September and will be a
more serious task, as they consist
mostly of ferocious uld hulls.
When thiB shipment arrives at tbe
park the government will have a bent
ol ''-'it) bison, costing almut f 102,500,
or about $25o per head.—Cranbrook
Gold Near Vancouver
Free placer gold, says the Vancouver
News-Advertiser, yielding it is estimated Irom 1150 to $200 per ton, has
been discovered in the basin ol Seymour Creek. I. L. Marriott, an Australian prospector, who has been at
work (or the laat life weeks on tho
creek, made the discovery, and he and
seventeen associates, have staked out
claims extending from Seymour Canyon clear down past the Keith Road
The pans which Mr, Marriott has
lieen obtaining run all the way Irom
10 cents to 20 cents each, and when
the lact iB taken into consideratk u
that gold at I cents a pan is iu paying
quantities, the new discovery baa certainly all tbe indications of being a
good one.
Sluicing operations have already
lieen begun on tbe property which Mr,
Marriott and bis syndicate bave located. Tbe gold is found in the sand
along the shores ol tbe creek, and un
the creek bottom, as well as in the old
basin wbicb runs along just southwest ol the present course. When tbe
turbulent stream has.aubiided, which
it will within a lew weeks, a (orce ul
men will lie put at work on the creek
