Doctor Shot in the   Neck
Assassin Arrested.
Winnipeg, July 211.—Evidently the
vici im of a false friend's treachery. Dr.
Clyn Smith, ol St. Louis, Mo , lies in
the general hospital with a bullet
wound in his neck, while lhe police
are in search of the man who escaped
being a murderer by the merest
Dr. Smith, who ia 35 years ol age, is
a retired practitioner of St. Louis. On
Wednesday he arrived in tl.e city from
Vancouver und registered nt lhe
Slralhcoua hotel. At the hotel,
through the medium of Ibe O.id
Fellows' sign, hc met u genial young
lellow who introduced I.in.sell ns u
railway man from I'eiiiislyvaiinin.
While the doctor wus ut dinner last
evening, this chance friend drove up
with a horse and buggy, saying be hml
borrowed the outfit fron. a friend, nnd
invited Dr. Smith to go for a drive.
They drove to a point beyond the
Kildounu church, when they turned
to return to the city. Suddenly the
doctor It-It cold steel pressed against
Ilia temple, and at tlie same time lii-.ud
the click ot u hammer on a useless
cartridge. Turning iu amazement, the
doctor heard his companion make
some remark about a blank cartridge.
and the next instant there was a Hash,
and he lelt tbe penetration of a bullet
in his neck.
With the horse gull.ping at full
sp... .1 the two men engaged in a deadly struggle and despite liis wound Dr.
Smith succeeded in wresting tlio weapon trom his assailant. At ihis he became very penitent, begged the doctor's forgiveneas, claiming he must
have been crazy aud remarking that
be had been suffering from stomach
trouble and must have goue insane.
Fearing that he might be overcome l.y
tbe wound, the doctor tlnew the revolver into a pool hy the roadside, refused the offer of his companion to
drive him to a farm house in the op
poaite direction to the city, and got
out of the buggy. At this the assassin
turned and whipping up his horse
galloped off in tlie direction of Selkirk.
The doctor, after lodging a complaint of attempted murder against
the unknown man, was taken to the
hospital, where the bullet wus removed
and lound to be a 32 calibre.
It is believed murder un.l robbery
were intended. The doctor is in Mie
habit ol carrying a large sum of money
with him,

C P. R. Men Risk Their Lives
Save Chinese in Blazing Cars
WINNIPEG, Man., July 30.—That
nnolher wreck dill not occur on the
C.l'.it yesterdny morning is due to
the gent bravery of two of the
company's employees who risked their
lives in order to save a trainload of
Chinamen going through to New
York on a special tram. Engineer
McA.lnm, who was on the engine
drawing tlie Chinese special, was

the fireman to jump, which both men
succeeded in doing without an injury
When thc engineer gathered himsell
t.getl.er he noticed the train had run
right int.. the midst of tlie burning
bridge and thai already somo ol tlie
conches were on lire. He immediately
climbed aboard and ran forward to
the engine through the cars. The
rngine was right in the centre of the
Humes, but the engineer pulled open
the I brot tie and ran lhe train across
the bridge. When salely across it
was discovered that six coaches wire
still on ll.e hri Ige the coupling having
broken loose when tbe brakes were
applied. Another train w.w due in a

danger of running into tlio rea." of

their own ward than ol ..nv other, is
in accordance with human nature.
An alderman who will do well Ior his
ward, is the idej* that the average
elector has ivherl he goes to drop liis
ballot in ihe box. Unfair appropriation of money to special wards has
.jot oftener occurred because the
lighting strength has heen pretty
equally distributed. Tlie ward system.
in some guise or other, will always
c mtinue, und it is perhaps better to
have it open and above-board than
working mole-like nnd incognito.
"The wanl system sometimes produces nn alderman or two, who having
fought well for iheir wards, get their
eyes open to tlie faot that llie ward is
only u part of the cily,und then realize
that the wards are a federation, and
that there are certain thjngs in which
the federation must lie Bolid. Tliis realization is a step in municipal statesmanship, and how they act In tlie
[ ceul such things is a lest of their
fitness as representatives."

On going to press no definite report
bus been received of the escaped
prisoner Lawrence, who so unobtrusively broke jail recently and has so far
succeeded iu eluding the minions of
the law, We have learned that the
man was at Golden on Friday last and
that he was forcibly ejected from that
town, afterwards trekking through ths
Windermere country. If this be correct, there should be no difficulty in
recapturing the prisoner since
laco and appearance are known;
a, tbe country is dotted with ranches
surely some one would succeed in
landing tbe fugitive. On the other
hand there is a feeling in town thai
the wanted man is still in the vicinity
oi the city and should this be the case
no opportunity should be missed in
securing ways and means of effecting
a capture. The feeling has been, so
we understand, substantiated to a
certain extent, and thus being so
it should not be a liilicult matter to
bring lhe man to justice.
The missing man Murphy is still
being sought, but the question is yet
open aa to what happened to him after
leaving tl.e Union hotel. This most
serioui ease should be sifted to the
bolt m and no opportunity missed in
taking steps to bring to light
whole terrible business, That
tempted murder and r hbery in -.or
city should go unpunished, sh u i a *
be permitted and the people leel that
concerted aftloo should be ad. cated
Tbe ease lo a certain extent has been
ibrouded in mystery, which canm t

The following excerpt from the Vancouver Pn vince as touching the |

"There ii a gooJ deal to be said lor

household or lamily as ths unit, thi

"That aldermen—except those ol the
ideal sort whicli wo may read about in
ll seems to he tilt' enst. in of the
average citizen to think, that alter le
has worked, it may be very haul, to
help put liis choice of an alderman on
the civic board, to represent liii portion ..f the city, he lias done his duty
citizen and that ho may now sit
hack at liis ea-e and leave all the city
management to the mayor and aldermen, and tben,prol)a'.!y along with
others will at once kick and complain st
the doings and sayings ol that body. In
imagining tbat be hns nothing to do
in city ...attors and that lhe alder-
manic council by being put into that
office, have sl.ou!d"rcd entire responsibility ol all civic iill'.iirB, he has failed
signally in the first duty and obligations ol citizenship. It is liurdly right
to saddle the city council with every
burden which the conduct of r city
must necessarily impose since the
alderman gives up his time gratis to
looking alter nnd carrying on ciiy
husiness, and devotes to the good ..I
tlie community ut large perhaps hours
whicli may mean much to him in liis
own private business. The duties
assigned to aldermen nre many nnd
varied und no matter how energetic
and conscientious they may he, there
will be some at least, among the people who will find .lis satisfaction in
their actions. In conducting a oily
every citizen no matter who he is or
who ever she may be, Iihb a duly to
perform towards the con inunity, a
duty no less import int than that
imposed on an alderman, and in neglecting to shoulder such resp.iii8il.ili>
ties, he or she is every bit as much to
blame as an alderman who bus been
callous in his legitimate work us..
city represent.it ive. There is much
in the management ol a city tlmt the
ordinary citizen cm undertake, nnd
l.y doing so he will to a considerable
extent relieve the council i-i duties
which lhat body cannot very well
make a speciality of. Publio work,
public improvements and such like
are matters which a civic board can
and must handle and administer, but
in questions where city morals, standard ol living nud mode of life are concerned it is the duty of the city to .I..
his share and in doing so he should
secure the oc-operation of bis f. II iws,
What Kevelstoke needs at the present
time is something alter the styli ol a
ratepayers' association or citizens'
league, whicli can discuss and if necessary act up..n all questions affecting j
tbe morals and moral stnnd'u
community at large. Were some
such organization instituted in this
citp much material good would result.

A speciul meeting ol the city council
was held on Monday night, all members being present.
Communications were received Irom
F. F Busteed, general superintendent
PacilicDivisioii.C.P.R.stating that lhe
railway company could not enter into
any arrangement with the city for
power and light at 2}c. and 5e. respectively, lor reasons that Ihe plant cannot be installed thia season, and since
the extra boilers are now ready to fulfil
nil present requirements the company
could not accept the city's offer. As
there was nothing to show that this
was final and thit the railway company had probably arranged lor the
winter this comii.unication was tiled,
From C. Ooddard, engineer, re the
widening and enlarging of the pnwer
hoiiBe lor lhe new machinery.—Filed.
From the Government Executive
Committee, Victoria, re the order in

From Harvey, McCarter it Pinkham
in connection with lho claims uf 0.
Taylor for loss sustained through the
quarantining nl the house during the
recent diphtheria case and the additional expense ol looking alter the
putient A writ was also served on
the city lor the amount claimed, $269
and charges. The council had pre-
vioosly had Ihis ...aller under consideration and held that the claim was a
ridiculous one. It was resolved to
reler the mailer to the city solicitor.
The assessment roll was then discussed, the year showing a substantial
increase in the amount and value of
a.sesenl.le properly. A resolution was
passed fixing the date ot the first sitting ul the Court of Revision for
Wednesday, September 4th, at 7.30
p, m.   The meeting then terminated.
Substantial   Increase   Since
The assessment roll Ior 1907 has
just been compiled and lhe figures,
although subject to revision, are
sufficiently correct to show the large
increase of land values and improve
ments, oyer the proceeding year. By
tho figures to hand the increase of
land and improvements iu the city
amount to $152,040. This year the
C. P, R. right ol way has been taxed
for the first time, sub section A of
section 118 ol the act, which excludes
railway corporations Irom taxation
ie cities incorporated alter 1895, having been repealed at the last sitting ol
parliament. The amounts ol taxes
due Irom the C. P. R. are not to hand,

It is interesting to note that this is
the liis! time that lhe figures on the
aase'Bment roll have ever reached the
million dollar mark, wnich is a demonstration ut the growtli ol lhe cily.
The first court ot revision will be
held on Wednesday, September 4rd.
C.P.R. Employees Perfect all
Arrangements for Picnic.
The first annual picnic held by the
C. P. R. employees will take place at
Albert Canyon on Saturday, August
3rd. Special fares, $1 adults and 50c.
children, lor the rouud trip have been
arranged. The excuriion will leave
Revelstoke at 0 a.m. and return about
6 p.m. An elaborate programme ot
sports and other amusements has
be;., arranged and will be in charge ol
an able committee. The prize list is
a handsome one and dims the management great credit.
The outing promises to be most
popular and Revelstoke should patronize the movement liberally. A day
in the mountains will do as much
good as tonic A good time in store
for all. Refreshments, suit drinks,
etc., can be obtained on tl.e ground.
All Divorces Since 1857 May
be Illegal.
Vancouvkb, July 80.-Haa the supreme oourt ol British Columbia any
powers in matters ol divorce? It has
remained lor Mr. Justice Clement to
raise this question, stnitllng the liar,
and .ven tho Bench, his brother
judges, and sending divers tremors
and loars in the veins of scores whom
British Columbia Inm divorood since,
in 1857, tl.e then colony adopted this
law ul the motherland.
In effect Mr. Justice Clement asks:
" Was lhat law, exercised lor It
years belore Britisli Culumbia joined
conlrderatiun, taken away by the I),
N. A, Aot, whioh includes ' Marriage
and Divorce' among tho 'inclusive
prerogatives' ul tho Dominion l'urlisj
It. raising this question the conr'
has had to include Nov,. Boutin, the
ouly oilier provi. ce of llie Dominion
whicli had this Knglisli law belore
conlederntion, and which, like British
Columbia, has since continued to exercise it.
The point has been raised in Mary
Watts' petition against Rueben Walls.
That case has now been directed to
stand aside until October. Meanwhile
Justice Clement has requested argument upon the two-told question:
Has one judge or have three judges
power to grant divorces; nnd second,
if one judge has that power, can he
grant a decree nisi, usually returnable
in six months, or must he not grunt a
lirst and final decree absolute.
Upon Ihe argument the Attorney-
General and the Minister of Justice
will l-e asked to take part with J. A
Russell, K C, and C. M. Woudworth,
counsel Ior and agai.iBt the Watts
"There would not, ol course, be >.
revolution in matters ol divorce, even
though it sliould be decidul, here or
