It is Thought the Victim Was Done to
Death by a Fellow Countryman.
A report has reached Chief of Provincial Police Bullock-Webster of tbe
murder of an Italian near Cascade
City,. The ohief huB instructed Allan
Forrester, constable of Brooklyn, to
go to Cuso ule City and assist the local
men in effecting the capture of the
murderer. As yet no official report ot
the investigation has reached Nelsou.
The Cascade Record gives the following particulars of tbe affair:
Wednesday afternoon T. J. Gorman
brought word into town that the frozen body of an unknown man was lying on the west side of the wagon
road about six miles from town, just
this side of Baker Creek.
Thursday morning Provincial Constable l),��rrn,ugh, accompanied by \V.
H. Cooper and Frank Asprey, went
to the scene and brought in the remains of the unfortuate man. Dr,
Stanley Smith, of Grand Forks, the
coroner, was notified and oame dowu
yestordny to hold an inquest. A jury
was impanelled and began its work
of investigation about 1 :30 o'clock
Tlie jury consisted of A. Cameron
foreman; and R. T. Evans, C.Palmer,
N. Robinson, D. D. Fergusou and
W. J. Ron's. Evidence was ruken from
nine different persons tho sessiou last
ing till 7 o'olock, when tlie jury was
dismissed by tbe coroner till 1 o'olock
Monday to permit of a postmortem examination.
Constable D. J. Darrnugh then gave
evidence as to the tiding oi the body its
position, appearance and condition and
later produced the effects found in
the dead nirn's clothes. The boi y was
found about PI feet from tho roadside
down a slight hill and was neiirly covered with snow. It had evidently
been there a month or more. The
shoes were off nnd tlie socks nearly off,
but the gloves were on. On the right
side of his head there was a deep out,
running from behind the ear to his
eye. There wns another deep cut on
the left side under tho chin. One
thumb was badly gashed, mid tbe appearance was Unit I hern had in en a
scffWe, before deceased wns murdered
aud thrown to ono side of the road.
On tlie body was found |H in bills, a
bandana handkerchief,two apples,* tobacco sack and a scrap of paper.
The testimony of Major Cooper and
Frank Asprey, who aeoompanied
Constable Dnrrangh wheu lie wont for
tbo remains, was suhisiantinlly a corroboration of that officer's evidence.
Antonio Scarpelli, a contractor,
testified that when notified by Mr.
Darraugh, he at once set inquiries
afoot among the Italians in Cascade,
to identify the dead man. Scarpelli
did not himself recongizc tho body, but
found two men who said they did.
lie said that he had learned that tlie
victim, Donate Ons-ato, had said he
was going back to Italy at once, which
meant that lie had considerable money
about liim.
Frank Devon, barkeeper of the Rom ���
unn hotol,Cascade, testified that late in
December Cassalo had been in the hotel, and had left about 4 o'clock one
afternoon for tbe camp, aftor getting a small time chock cashed by Eastman & O'Brien. He waB sure (be
body was that of Cassato.
Nick liomnrdi, also employed at tlie
Roma hotel, recognized the doud man
because of the black shirt lie wore
and with whioh ho soiled the bed
linen at the  hotel.
Nick Lamanna, who has been at
the hospital since January 17, and is
now oonvnhscing, was the most important witness of all as tn tlie identity of thn dead man. He stated tbat
lie had known Cassntu over three
years. Cassato had been working with
his partner, whoso first name was
Tony, for Carminia Maglio, who hud
station work from .1. O. McLean &
Co. The letter's headquarters wero
about 1(1 miles from Cascade, towards
Gladstone. Just I'f'foiO the llrst of the
vein- Cassato started for Cascade, loav-
ing his blankets and effects at tlie
'amp with his partner. About Ihe 71 h
of January Lainanun had passod Cas-
"ion on ihe road, mid that was the last
'ui had seen of him till he identified
t e remains in the jail. He did not
know where tho partner was, ai d
Maglio, at last accounts, was in Nil-
"on. Liimnnna was positive that the
dead muu was Donato Cassato.
There scorns to bo Utile doubt* but
that tlie dead man was murdered early
in Jnnni-iy for the money ho was
known to have on him. 'Tho |8,00
In bills was overlooked wheu the murderer went through his clothes It appears thnt he was struck on the right
flue of the head with a cleaver or

LONDON PRESS COMMENT,
Loudon, Feb. 21. ��� The serious developments in Mr. Kipling's illness
have caused widespread anxiety and
pain in England. Extraordinary interest is manifested on overy side.
In fact, the entire nation seems to be
pl.-'.c* d in suspense by the alarming
news lhat reaches bore from New
York. The Daily Telegraph says that
Mr. Kipling's death would lie a national calamity. (July in his 84th year,
ho has done what has lieeu permitted
to vory few young men to do in
this or any other ago. Ho has rovig-
oraled the close of the century with a
"lesli and masculine note nnd has
given back to his contemporaries faith
in their old ideals. In the midst of
muob efeniinate and decadent literature, Kipling has been vigorous, hopeful and alert. The Daily News says
that the serious news from Kipling's
hodside will be road with anxious
concern in overy part of the Empire,
for whatever else he may havo done,or
failed to do, ho is himself the great
Imperial Federatiouist. Ho has done
more than any living writer to bring
h une a knowledge of England, and
what she stands for in tho world, to
those who only know England.
The Daily Mail says that during
tho last few years Kipling has come
to hold the glorious position of laur-
eitnof the Anglo-Saxon race.

the latter to act in self defence, after

That snch a quantity of legislation
could be given proper consideration
in so short time was, of course, impossible. But the gentleman who controlled tbe House has never permitted
a little matter of that kind to give him
the least concern. Tbe members may
not have known what his Bills ware
driving at; but he d.d and that wns
enough. When Mr. Martin wills, it
is not for his followers to doubt or
question, but to give him thoir votes ;
and to be just to his followers, wo are

A great deal has already beeu said
of the Alien Exclusion Act. It
may be that in principle it commends
itself to a majority of the people of
British Columbia, nnd that its effect
will meet their wishes. We should be
glad to think otherwise, for the Act is
undoubtedly wrong in principle, and
we shall be agreeably disappointed if
it does not prove injurious in practice
That, however, is a mutter for the future to determine in terms that will
not be disputed. Of demagogic legislation thero was a vaster quantity
than has been; quite too much for the
limits of a short review of tho sessiou.
The close was remarkable for legislation of another kind, a kind lhat can
only be described as confiscation and
repudiation. Under thn Subsidy A. t
of 1HH7 the late Government entered
into a contract with Mackenzie and
Mann for the oonstruotion of a railway
fro n the Coast t I Penticton. Tho Act
specified that Railway Companies, to I
become entitled to a subsidy, should
begin construction within fifteen
months, bringing the date down to
August, 1898. Tho contract provided
that actual oonstruotion should begin
not later than May, 1KII9. Members of
tbe present   Government   profess* d to
where in Canada to be in the general
interest of the country, and thus take
over conrrol of it. The new Ministers
at Victoria, extraordinary as tbey undoubtedly are,can scarcely override the
Act of Confederation.

Throughout the country there is a
feeling of relief at the failure of the
prolonged and hapless Washington ne

evoked hy tin. opinion that, there ought
to bo no treaty, As a matter ol
fact, there is a general and wellfouiul-
el belief thi disputed points should he
settled, that the United States tariff
should be reduced, and that no more
opportune occasion for a very favorable sotllement could bo ionnd than
that which has presented ilsclf during
the past few months. The satisfaction
arises altogether from distrust of our
own Ministers. That distrust was not
confined to one side of politics. It

to tbe present time the contractors
have had engineering parties at work
locating the line, and this has always
been admitted by the Dominion authorities as keeping within the letter
and spirit of such a condition. A road
cannot be begun until located, and
location is a necessary part of construction. This understanding of the
matter was agreed to by the British
Columbia Government before making
the contract with Mackenzie und
Mann.
; The Attorney-General, however,
was determined to break the contract, and he fastened on this techni-
ality as his pretext. The Act, granting
the subsidy was repealed and the contract itself repudiated.    With tho   At

The finance committee reported recommending the payment of several accounts and delinhij. the duties of the
city solicitor as follows :
��� The city solicitor shall prepare all
hy Iuwb to be hereafter passed and
shall certify on each by-law that it is
correct and legal in form. He shall
attend all meetings of Council aud
oommittees of Council when notified to
do so. He shall advise the Counoil,

belonging to their department where
the solicitors advice is considered desirable. He shall attend at the courts
in support of proceediugs under the
by-laws where the attendance of the
city solicitor is  considered   necessary.
"In actions brought by or against
the oity, the solioitor in the event of
judgment being against the city, shall
be only entitled to charge aotual disbursement; in all cases where the city
is successful he is to be entitled to his
taxed costs against the opposite party
if coats are allowed by the oourt. He
shall attend in support of tho city's
assessment or any appeal against the
assessment. He Bhall draw all contracts, deeds or agreements between
the city and other persons. He shall
investigate aud report on the title of
any property proposed to be purchased
by the city aud prepare all nocossary
documents in connection therewith
He shall prepare any suggested amend
ments to the Municipal Clauses or
other Provincial Aots, reoomihende I
to be mado by the council. "
The report of the coinmillee wns
adopted in its entirety.
City Engineer McCulloch presented
a report of his inspection of the Kelson Opera House to the effect that tlie
building was perfectly sufe but that to
insure absolute protection he hud recommended the placing of posts under
the gallery, which had been done by
tho management. He had also recommended that two doors be placed at
tho stage end ot the gallery to he used
in case of lire. Tho report was received
aud filed.
W. P. Dicksou, the electrical expert
engaged to report upon tho condition
of the oity electric light plant, presented his report. Ho fouud the capacity of tho plant to bo 8600, 18
candle power incandescent lumps.
Ho recommended that two nltiriuiting
current dynamos for llioandenscent
lightB and a 2fi aro light dynamo be
added to tho plant and that a new dam
be built above the plant to be 10 feel
higher than the present dam. The
old dam, he said, was liable to go out
at any time. Tho street mains, he said
wero too small and offered to much
resistance to the current. The dynamos had been used above their oapi'o -
ity und the iiisulalion wus badly worn.
Tho present OapOOlty of the plant was
not sufficient to care for the lamps
now in nso. Tlie plant, he thought,
in order tO be    made   efficient   would
need the expenditure upon if of sbool
*i-i,oo(), but before anything was done
with the present, plant he thought it
advisable thut the council should see
what terms could be made for the supply Ot power from an outside point.
Aid. Fletohor thought that tlie report should be referred to u special
Committee who should present a sup-
pleinoutnry report to the council stilting iu detail just what* would be needed to place the plant in gooil condition, and upon motion this was decided upon and Aid. Fletcher, Kirk-
putriok and Hillyer were named by tl e
mayor as tho committee,
Tlie committee appointed to consider
the report of Dr. La Pun, Iho health
officer, presented the foljowing report :

ing to he elected ut some point to be
deoided on hy the council.
Third���We "agree with the health
officer that the question of scavenger
work is n very serious one, nnd that
the present method of conducting this
business is a serious menace to the
welfare of the town We would
therefore suggest that the council lake
up ihe question of the city doing its
own s -avenger work which we think
inn be carried outto the general benefit of the city. Those portions of the
report referring to the extension of the
water and sewer mains, we have uot
mentioned, as this is a question that
iho coun-il has already in view, ns
soini as weather permits operations,
The three paragraphs of report dealt
wilh, are matters that should be
dealt with at an early date.
Upon motion the report was taken
up  section by section and adopted.
A letter was read from the Hon. J.
Fred Hume stating that the amendments in the Wator Clauses Act asked
for by the city had been made and the

had all been turned over to the Gold

The Thomson Stationery Co., asked

Ou motion of Aid. Beer the mayor
and city engineer were authorized to
have a sidewalk laid on Front, street
from the Hospital to the city limits.
Aid. Hillyer gnve notice that at
the next meeting of the council he
would introduce un amendment to the
License By law providing that clul.s
sdling liquors to their members should
pay a retail liquor hcens.. This is pn -
vided for in an act recently passed by
the Provincial Legislature.
On motion o* Aid. Beer the cily engineer nnd wator commissioner were
instructed to prepare  a diagram of the
city showing to just what extent wnter
mains hud been effected by tho cold
spells of the past winter.
Aid. Hillyer culled attention to the
fact that the Hall Mines smelter people
were carrying water from the electric
light and paying nothing therefore.
Mayor Neelands explained that th s
did not interfere wilh the plant an I
the mutter wns dropped without action.
Mr W. P. McKechern, who had laid
1175 feet of sewer for the oity in the
rear of the English church, appeared
before Ihe council to ask for ii settlement of his account with the cily. It
appears that the work was done with
out the supervision of any oity official
and that Mc.Ktcliern hnd been told by
ex-Mayor Houston to go ahead with
the work aud he would be protocol'.
When the work was finished City Engineer MoOulloch refused to pass upon
it because he was uot sure that the
work had been done properly. The
matter was finally referred to tho
Mayor and city engineer for settlement.

It nniv not be of place here to call
flie attention of the nniiiHgenient of
the Opera House to the wny in which
certain small boys make a practice of
disturbing tne performances by cat
calls aud other uncouth sounds, thereby detracting much from the enjoyment of o.hers present. This has beeu
an objectionable feature in nearly nil
the performances so far given in the
new Opera House, and it is to be hoped that effective steps will be taken
tonight to prevent the roenrrenen of
such disorders.

At a fully attended meeting of the

Since the general meeting of the 80-

something unforeseen happens," said
he to a Miuer reporter lust night, "in
a few months Biitish Columbia will
be in the midst of one of the biggesi
mining booms in her history. It will
not be a boom in the ordinary sense
of the word, but it, will be one which
will mean the inflow Of capital from
the East and from across the Atlantic.
A war such as came last summer between the United States and Spain is
the only thing that cun prevent tbe
most prosperous time* Of course Ihe
greutest interest manifested in Spokane
is in Republic mines but there is more
inquiry for British Columbia properties than for somo time nast. That
good times are coming I have no
doubt. "

the initial performance in Nelson by
the Buchanan Dramatic Com puny.
Tbe play chosen for their debut here
was "Queen's Evidence," a powerful
melo-drama in four acts.
As Kate Mediant!, Miss Grade Huyes

of exaggeration. Bhe way frequently
and deservedly applauded, lu 'lie

R. Buchanan gave au exhibition of
vory clever acting. Hll impersonation
was only marred by a couple of lapses
into unnecessary vulgarity. Mr. K.

special word of praise must be given
to "Little Arthur" played   liy   Master
