James DesRevieres Now on trial for the
Killing of Harry Rowand.-Prisoner
Takes Things Calmly.
The   trial   of   .lamos l'\ McGill   des I the   settlement   as   " Frenehy,"   who
Rivieres for the murder of Harry Row
anil on the evening of February 88,
was commenced at the assize court
yesterday afternoon,
Thc court room was crowded with
spectators on the qui vive for sensational revelations, which in the popular mind arc Invariably associated
with murder trials. The prisoner was
Iii charge ��f Police Constables Forrester and Young and tbe arrival of tbe
prisoner aroused considerable interest. On being placed in the dook the
prisoner appeared to lake tbe matter
very calmly,and for all tbe impression
Becomingly made upon bim, he might
have merely been a spectator.
Ily profession he is said to he a chil
engineer, and is a man abont forty,
years of age, Des Revieres is an Intelligent looking fellow, and has not
the appearance of being vicious or
dangerous. IIa has heavy black hair
with beard and whiskers of the same
hue, and wore grey corduroy clothes.
Des Revieres watched the proceedings
with intelligent interest and although
the evidence adduced frequently seemed damaging the prisoner���beyond
frequent interviews with his counsel
���betrayed rib abnormal anxiety or
uneasiness. I
VV. A. Macdonnld, K. C, prosecuted
for the crown,and 10. I'. Davis, K, C ,;
of Vancouver, witli Robert S, Lennie,
of Elliot at Lennie, appeared for tl e
defense. A jury was empanelled composed of the following gentlemen ; o.
Nowliug, (I Stanley, Wallace II.
Urown, II. O. Poole .1. II. Hunter, C.
1). Christie, 6. A. Hunter; T. Lillie,
Chns. Wilson, 1! .1. Steel, A. I).
Emory and ,1. McDonald.
The lirst witness called for the
crown was .nomas Jones, who described himself as a ir.inei wbo slept
in tbe house of prisoner during Ihe
night of tlie affray. Witness had only
known prisoner about eight days, and
so lar as he knew prisoner and accused were the. very best of fiiens, They
had all been drinking very heavily
during tbe day, and in'the evening,
he (witnejs) was too much intoxicated to know bow much intoxicated tbe
others were. He was aroused abont
8 o'oloek in the evening by the sound
of a man falling close, to him, and
got out ns quickly as he could. On
further cross examination witness deposed to Seeing a man lying, between
his blankets and tbo bed, and heard
tbe accused say, "Tom, Harry is
dead.11 Ilo saw deceased lying there,
betraying no signs of life. Did not
go to sec what was thc matter wilh
him, but saw blood pretty close to his
face. The prisoner was standing close
by, but did not notice anything in
his hand, nor heaid hiin say anything.
Witness Iben went out lo raise the
alarm and proceeded to the hotel,
which was only thirty yards away,
and roused the hoys. lie went back
to the cabin with Geo, Olson and two
others and found the prisoner standing at the bed, but saw no one else.
The deceased was lying in the same
position and he heard the boys say
that he was dead, but had no talk
with the accused and heald from him
no explanation of the cause of death.
The counsel for the crown hero produced the knife with whicli Hie prisoner was alleged to have indicted the
wound. It was a large, bone handled
cla-isp knife, the kind invariably usid
by prospectors. Witness did Tot rie-
ognizo tlie weapon as the one beloi g-
ing to prisoner, not having seen the
knife owned by him.
Cross examined by counsel for defense the witness remarked that be
did not hear the accused calling hiin,
but was awakened by the falling of
the body, lie, prisoner, was a quiet
harmless man, as far as he knew,
nnd did not krow if he was crippled
in one arm.
Malcolm McLeod wns the next'
witness culled nnd described himself
as a lumbeiman at Dencro, and was
at the Windsor hotel when some one
came over to telephone foi a doctor.
Identified prisoner, who was known in
said n man was hint in n euhin and
needed a doctor. He, with others,
went over to prisoner's cabin and
found ihe body of Rowand lying on
the floor: they felt his pulse and
found tbat he was dead. He asked
Des Revieres how it happened,who replied, "[do not know." Trey then
returned to the hotel and telephoned
for a Constable. He noticed no indication of n struggle in the cabin and
accused manifested no particular excitement beyond what would be nat-
uial under the circumstances.
Cross examined by counsel for defense witness admitted that he was
not on speaking terms with prisoner,
but took the prisoner's remarks about
tbe knife as a joke, lie also admitted
that prisoner was not a quarrelsome
man, but was teased a great deal
about his sympathies with the Hritish in the lloer war. hut never quarrelled. After the matter was known
the prisoner made no attempt to escape a d at his own request the body
was lbit as it fell until the arriavl of
the coroner.
Otto Dlllier was examined, and described himself as tlie proprietor of
Hie Dencro hotel. Had seen Rowand
around the hotel during the day, and
hearing singing in'prisoner's cabin
in tho evening, but nothing to indicate a quarrel.
Later in the evening Jones ran
barefooted into the hotel, and crouched behind tho stove, closely followed
by Des Revieres, who wanted to telephone for a doctor, as a man was sick
and bleeding in the cabin. Prisoner
asked for a pencil aud paper and commenced writing, but only wrote about
a line and a half. A paper was then
produced and wns identified as the
one upon which prisoner had written,
and ran something like the following:
"Hi Feb., MOW About 4.31) found
dead in cabin." Witness noticed
blood on prisoner's hands and some
one asked him how it came there, but
did not know what answer he gave.
Ilo bad seen prisoner under the intlu-
ece of liquor and bad some trouble
wilh hiin,
Cross examined by Mr. Davis, witness admitted that chief cause of arguments with prisoner was on account of his Hritish patriotism, and
told him the Hritish nnd Cunadians
were cowards, merely lor the i-ake of
getting up an argument, hut never
knew him to get into n scrap and did
not think lie was drunk.
Geo. Olson, a miner, gave corroborative evidence and his examination
elicited nothing new beyond the fact
that prisoner in conversation with
one Eiiekson wished that he was in
thc place of the man in the cabin.
He further stated prisoner did not
K'nve the hotel because the gang
would not permit liim. PHsout got
angry and said they had no right to
detain him, and referring to the
death of Rowand said ho had to do It.
Witness recognized the knife as the
one calried by prisoner, had seen it
in li is possession two or three weeks
before.
W. G. McMynn was the next and
principal witness so far examined, he
is provincial chief of police, registrar
and mining recorder, and formally
arrested prisoner for the murder of
Harry Rowand on the 17th of February. He found prisoner in the lockup
at Greenwood and, in the presence of
Chief McLaren, and another employee
of the city who had charge of tho
cells, took the following statement,
which he (witness) recorded in his
pocket diary. Prisoner mentioued his
trouble of previous evening and stated that a man came in whom he ���asked to get out. A struggle ensued in
which prisoner was pushed over the
stove and backward over the bed. He
then took a knife he used for cutting
shavings and struck him with it. He
then left the cabin after closing up
tbe place, went to the hotel and told
them he had stabbed a man and asked
them to setd for a doctor. On Tuesday,  Feb. 1(1
Poiirass, a friend of prisoner, visited
him in his cc'l. and witness in his
olliee ovehearing Hie conversation took
down on a piece of blotting paper,
(produced in court), the story told
by accused from l'ortrass, the actual
words of whicli were: "I hit him
with knife, and struck hiin in the
side first then struck him here,(pointing to left chest) and I pushed bim
and befell on the floor." During
tho examination of this witness the
bloody clothing of deceased was identified by witness, the exhibition of
which caused a horribly sickening
shudder to pass through the court
room. The places where the knife
had punctured the garments were
pointed out, and clotted ns they were
with blood from the wounds formed a
gruesome spectacle.
On proceeding to the seene of tbe
tragedy accompanied by the coroner,
two policemen and prisoner, witness
immediately proceeded to take a number of photographs of Ihe ghastly
scene before anything wns removed
or disturbed. The photos weie produced in court and repiesented differ- \
ent views of the body and of tho cabin, The authenticity of the photos
being admitted by prisoner and bis
counsel they were scheduled and examined by Hie jurymen.
Thc post mortem examination
which followed disclosed a wound on
the left chest and a wound on Hie
right side. Aftor the eioss examination of Albert Poitrass, whose evidence wiib merely identification of
prisoi.er as a personal friend, the
court was adjourned until 10.30 today.
The keenest interest is being manifested in the trial, the court room being crowded during botli sittings.

morning's lire. They are: E. Le-
blanc, SO years cf age, St. Joseph village, near Ottawa; Jas. Maxwell, 42
years, from Point Louise, Que. | Ed.
Roy, of St. Joseph village. They were
found in Mrs. Lecompte's hoarding
liouse, 25 Clarence street. There are
reports of others missing but these
aie all that can be verified.
Tlie special committee of the senate
appointed to inquire into tlie charge
of 11. II. Cook that he could havo had
a senatorship for 810,000 held a meeting today. It was unanimously decided, on motion of Senator Miller,
seconded by Senator Baker to report
the evidence taken and the addresses
of counsel without any finding. No
ibjection was taken to the motion.
On going into supply, Taylor moved
a resolution declaring that the rental
of the Seybold property on Sparks
street for $11,500 a year for a building
for the census staff and other purposes waa reckless and extravagant and
that parliament should have been consulted. Tarte replied submitting figures showing the value of the property and also the rental of other properties alongside on the same street to
prove that the rent was reasonable.
The vote stood 4!l for tho amendment
nnd 113 against, a majority of 41 for
the government.
Winnipeg, May II ���The money bylaws to raise $100,000 for school purposes and so,odd for fire hall repairs

Victoria, May 9.���This afternoon
and evening the house Was treated to
a stirring debate on tlieji'eport of the
loan railway bill. Theibill was completed in committee at ,2 o'clock this
morning. Tallow's motion practically excluding the C. 9 I!, from the
Coast to Kootenay contrilct was then
defeated by a vote of 9 to 13. On
report this nfternoon.however, Tat-
low revived his resolution in a modified form by moving that in giving a
subsidy for the Const ',to Kootenay
road preference should)be given to a
competitive line.
During a speech byj Curtis some
very sharp passages took place between him und the premier. The latter said it was not the intention of
the government to give^ a contract to
the C. P. R. but to the iond offering
tbo best bargain, nnd added that if
the V. V. at E., would agree to the
terms of the bill they would give it to
the V. V. A E. tonight, Further
questioned hy Curtis tbe premier said
Hint he did not agree with Martin
that the C. P. R. was til't only road
which could build the Hi e. He added
that the province could not haye a
competitive line, but. that tho only
way to get a competitive line was to
have the control of rates.
Tbe premier finally lost his temper
and said he wns willing to resign tonight and go to thc conntry on the
bill. Curtis retorted, "Doit, do it."
Houston then followed with u challenge to Curtis that be resign and go
back to bis constituency. Curtis immediately took it np and offered to resign and run in Vancouver in opposition to Martin and if allowed to make
one speech declaring he would beat
Martin out of his boots, Mclnnes
followed Curtis and attacked bim as
inconsistent in a rattling speech. He
referred to the fact that competition
in coal between Dunsmuir nnl the
company headed hy Robins, also one
of the greatest philanthropists in
Canada, had not kept down the price
of coal.
Eberts spoke for the government,,
holding that on Saturday the V. V. &
E. promoters had a conference with
tbe government, at which Dunsmuir
offered to give them the contract for
the Coast to Kootenay road at onee if
they would accept the government's
terms. Instead they had offered to
build 30 miles at each end,

or water privileges under the "Water

The summer school of mines, in connection with McGill university, Mon-
trenl, was founded n few years ago for
the purposo of giving a post graduate
course to those of its students who
have taken the mining and engineering course at the University. This
finishing course by Hie summer school
is now looked upoti as very important
in completing the education of mining
engineers nnd in giving embryo experts a practical knowledge of mines
and mining by a couise of study in
the mining districts of Canada. This
year the summer school class numbering 25, with four instructors, will
spend n couple of months in tlie mining districts of Hritish Columbia.
The party left Montreal May 1st, and
are now at Banff, where they will
spend n few days in the National
Park as the guests of tho C. P. R.,
after which the real work of the tour
will begin. From Banff the class wil
go to the Slocan, where n thorough
study of the silver-lead ore and the
formations in which it occurs will lo
made. The free milling gold ores of
Nelson and Ymir districts will next
be examined. The party will make a
long stay iu Rossland, where the copper-gold ores and peculiar formations
of Red Mountain will be subjects of
careful study and on whicli a course
of lectures will be given.
From this point the C. P. R. smelter at Trail will he visited und the
.tudents will be afforded another opportunity to study the treatment of
various ores as accomplished at a modern smelter. A short trio through tbe
Boundary will bo mado, after which
the party will return East vin tlie
Crow's Nest Pass, breaking their
journey at Fernie, to examine the
coal mines at that point. On arriving in Montreal thc balance of the
summer will be devoted to a careful
study of thc notes and observations
made on the trip and n complete
course of lectures on the practical
working of mines and the reduction of
ores will finish thc education of a
quarter of a hundred export mining
men. With the party are several
British Columbians, among whom is
Norman Parlee, of Rossland.
Tlie visit of this party is made at
thn solicitation of the C. P. R., which
has placed a special car ut the services of tho clnss, and affording the
instructors every facility for making
the tour successful. Its officials never
miss   an   opportunity for advertising
Baer uses the weed to overcome a nervous affliction, his family physician
having given him a choice of tobacco,
opium or cocaine. The clergyman
chose tobacco as being the least baneful of tbe three alternatives and some
of his parishioners raised a bowl.
The distiict session with which he is
connected took the matter np and exonerated Mr. Haer from all blame.
This did not satisfy the parties who
had filed the objection und the mutter
wns brought to tbe executive of the
generul conference. This tribunal
referred the matter back, and once
more the district whitewashed the
clergyman. At yesterday's session of
conference the question came up
again, attention being dmwn to the
fact thnt Mr. Baer had received publicity whicli wus likely to affect his
usefulness. The opinion was expressed that steps should be taken to bring,
the mailer to a conclusion.
Rev. Mr. Baer courted the full
est investigation and the circumstances of the ense will be laid by him be
fore conference todny. The clergymen who me already familiar with
the situation agree tha*Mt. Tftier has
not violated the spirit of the edict
against the use of tobacco on the part
of clergymen nnd conference will
probably place itself on record in such
a manner as will entirely dispose of
the matter.
The ministerial session of the conference opened its sitting in this city
at 9 a. m. yesterday. Rev. R. Whit-
tingtoo, M. A., B. Sc., conduited a

several of the ministers took part.

Two Men Nearly Drowned in
Lake Yesterday,
The first boating accident of thc
season occuried yesterday afternoon,
when C. A, Mills, of McLean's drug
stoic, and G. E. McLaughlin, of Wm.
Hunter at Co.'s establishment, came
within nn nee of being drowned in
the hike.
They were out in Ihe middle of the
lake in n canoe, when the stenmer
Moyie hovo in Sight, nnd iu passing
the canoe her wash caused the little
n-iift to capsize. The occupants loudly cried for help and they were for
some time in imminent danger. The
Moyie made her landing alongside the
Kokanee, without Hie men being noticed, and it was not until after tho
Crow's Nest passengers had landed
and the Moyie was again under wuy
(but the captain of the Kokanee noticed Hie drowning men clinging to
the canoe. Immediately Ihe steamer's
lines were cast and she wns put under
wuy to their rescue. Mills nnd McLaughlin were soon safely lifted on
deck, and from thence lo the wharf,
where they were conveyed in a cub to
their residence on Victoria street. A
doctor was culled in attendance uud
pronounced them out of danger though
badly chilled, the water being very
c ild at this season of the year.
Mills is the worst sufferer and has
received a serious shock, but at
a late hour last evening both were out
of danger. This is Hie third time
within twelve months that McLaughlin is reported to have heen immersed
in the lake. The men were in tho
water from the time of the Moyie
coming in nnd the Kokanee going ont,
whicli must have been in the neighborhood of a quarter of au hour.
Boatmen and canoeists are strongly
advised to give large craft like the
lake boats u wide berth, as prevention
is better than cure.
LAKE WENT DOWN���
Tlie lake is now six feet above Its
normal low water level, but receded a

THE  AdENl'-UENERAH.
Among tbe numerous Bills of the
session is one to Regulate the Appointment of the Ageot-Qoneral, Being only a higher officer of the Civil
Service, nothing more should be necessary than the usual Oriler-in-Coun-
cil, the same us in tbe case of tbe Canadian High Commissioner. That
greater dignitary thun nn Agent-
General is appointed by the Government, to bold ollice during good behaviour, and is removable ut any time
by the Governor-General-in-Council.
in British Columbia it is considered
necessary to pass a special Act governing the appointment and removal of
the Agent-General, It is being provided Hint he shall he removed only on
an address fiom the Legislature, thus
putting bis tenure of ollice on the
simii basis as that of Judges, who are
thus guarded and protected to insure
entire freedom fiom party feeling, or
prejudice, or bias. Lawyers aro not
infrequently politicians before tbey
arc Judges, and it is the happy boast
of Canadians that tbey cense to be
p iliticians nn soon as they nre elevated to the Bench, This is largely due
to the fact that their appointment is
practically indissoluble. It is uot understood that Agents-General or High
Commissioners ever entirely dissociate
themselves fiom their party gnds, nor
has it been regarded as absolutely necessary tbat they should do so. They
are expected to be faithful, like other
Civil Servants, and to enjoy oflice
dining pleasure or good behaviour.
These notions ure somowhnt disturbed
by the Ilill referred to.
It in un open secret that Mr, Turner
is to be tlie nextAgeiit-l)encrnl,nud it is
not too much to say thut he will go
to his duties witli tlie good wishes of
every man in tlie Province whose
good wish is worth having, lie ought
to be the lust man about whom there
should be the least feor us to tlie per
manency of his appointment. Yet it
is evident there is such a fear,
or the unsual course indicated
in the Ilill in question would
not bo taken. A member on the Opposition side sought, lo amend the Bill
by providing that the incumbent of
the ollice should be removable in the
uiiial way. This was resisted by the
Government, und wns defeated by a
lurge majority. Mr. Turner's tenure
of ollice, therefore, is to lie protected
by a provision which will make it impossible to remove hiin except by address of the Legislature, un expedient
that in icsoited to very rarely and always with great reluctance.
There could be no more significant
commentary on politics in British
Columbia than tbis. It is a recognition in the first place of the exceeding instability of political conditions.
The Dunsmuir Government is making
the appointment, if it survives the
Session, but before tho close of (mother session there muy be another Government who knows not Mr. Turner.
Anything may happen. Even Mr.
Martin may be back, witli bis Heches
and What-do-you-enU-eiiis. And then
staring us iu tlie Bill is the confession
that Governments in Hritish Columbia
are so unscrupulous thut they will not
hesitate to dismiss tlie most faithful
and competent official, should some
hungry follower covet his place. The
apprehension is almost expressed in
���words tbat the lirst needy politician
who came to thc top might dismiss
Mr. Turner in order to enjoy the ollice
himself. And truth to tell, not only
this but nny other discreditulbo apprehension may be entertained, witli
good warrant, of politics aud politicians as we have them in this Province. They understand this well in
Victoria, and because the;,' do his
friends nre deteimincd to surround
Mr. Turner witli every possible safeguard, Tbey are in the majority to
day :tomoirovv they may not be. They
are wise.
THE ORIENTAL TERROR.
���,.��.!��    a   ��,���,��.     m,���awftju.a^i.iiip ,m, a -,     n    iw        ,
was apt to gather from them that lie
ate n raw Jap or Chinaman every
nioinlng, in his desire to rid the
Province of those roving Mongolians,
According to tbe reports published oil
the spot. Mr. Marpole ivns not asked
to express any opinion as loathe industrial conditions produced by Oriental immigration, nnd his evidence
wns confined solely to tlie expression
of such facts as enmc within his own
knowledge. And it is to be observed
Hint some of these facts nre of n most
interesting chnrncter.
His own Rnil.vny Company bas been
supposed to be one'of the worst offenders in the degradation of while
labor. During last year, on the entire system of tbe Pacific division, of
whicli be is general superintendent,
there were DO Chinamen nnd 70 .lap-
ace employed, out of 11 total of 4,008,
And evn this licggnily three or four
pet cent, would not huve been employed if a full complement of white
labor could have been obtained. I'or
domestic service whites lire not to be
had, lie employs u .lap. a Chinaman,
und two white men, who work harmoniously together. He tried to get
white girls, but they married off so
fast that the experiment was unsatisfactory. Chinamen are in requisition
as cooks, for the sole reason that it
is impossible to get sufficient white
service of this kind, Tlie demand foi
Chinese cooks is extending as far enst-
ward as Toronto, An incident related
by Mr. Marpole will hear repeating.
In their desire to employ white labor,
the Company a year or two ago engaged 150 men nt Ottawa, to whom free
pasnge wus supplied. Not one of the
150e.er reached the Coast; they drop-
pad off at points along the route, us
other offers were made to litem. Had
they been 1.11) Chinamen, they! would
b.r e had >onor enough ut least to
keep their engagements, but the
smarter white man thought it was
clever to break faith and defraud his
employer out of his transportation.
We see fiom Mr. Marpole's evidence
thai tho greatest employer of labor in
the Province does not encourage Oriental immigration. It is only in case
of necessity bis Company employ Japs
or Chinamen, white labor being al-
avays preferred. We gather from it
also that as yet our white civilisation
is not threatened; neither our social
nor industrial conditions nre in dau.
ger of destruction. Whethei he would
keep out ail Mongolians does not appear from the evidence; blithe is
probably of the same mind as thc rest
of us, thut it is possible to have too
many of them. Hritish Columbia is
not to be made a Chinese colony. But
is there, or has there ever been, any
danger of this'.' Have we not to a
very great extent been frightening
ourselves for nothing'.' Take this matter of domestic service. Who bas not
beard the complaint that white girls
arc kept out by the Chinese'.' And is
it not the absolute, litem I fact that
Chinese arc employed for the reason
thut whites arc not to be obtained'.1
Banish every Chinaman fiom Nelson
tomorrow, and tliink you white girls
would rush in to cook und do housework, and furnish nil the help thnt is
required? Let us keep a check on
Chinese Immigration by all means, but
there is no occasion to get into a
panic of fright before wc arc hurl.
T83
lo e.vpoat next it ivould bo hard to
tell. We should not be surprised if nn
attempt be made to compel us to live
in nil respects ns 11 law abiding, respectable community is supposed to
live. To tliink that instead of a
wide-oiicn town, the delight of "the
boys," we ure to be converted to ail
tbis! It is enough to mukc fallen
angels weep.

When Mr. Maxwell, of Maxwell
and the Mint, returned to Vancouver
I the other dny, he was asked if the
J Domulon would aid the C. P. R. Company in case the Province voted it the
subsidy that is to go with the V. V.
A E. contract. "No," he replied,
"the Dominion is in favor of the V.
V. at E. Company. Tlie C. P. B.
would not get a subsidy iu any event.
No matter what the Proivnee does,
Hie Doimnion will never give a subsidy to the Coast-Kootenay railway construction by the C. P. R." If Mr.
Maxwell knoivs the mind of tlie Government and the spirit of Parliament,
it would look as if the Canadian Pacific had lost standing at Ottawa.

It is said that the Dominion Express
igent   at   Kelowna distriot has made
I himself popular with Hie fruitgrowers there by souring a rate that will
enable them to compete   with Toronto
; shippers in the towns nnd cities of
Manitoba, That is excellent; but it
would he more excellent if he were
first to secure a rate that would enable them to compete with California
shippers in the towns and cities of
Southern British Columbia. There is
something seriously wrong somewhere
witli the conditions when Kootenay
has to depend on foreign supp'y,
with fruit-growing Yale lying alongside.

QUESTION   ANSWERED.
Yes, August Flower still has the largest sale of any medicine in the civilized world. Your mothers and giand-
inotliors never thought of using any
thing el.se for Indigestion or llillous-
ness. Doctors were scarce, and they
seldom heard of Appendicitis, Nervous
Prostration or Heart fa-'ure, etc.
They used August .''lower to clean out
the system and stop fermentation of
undigested food, regulate Ihe action
of the system, and that is all they
took when feeling dull and had with
lienduclieH and other aches. You only
need u few doses of Green's August
."'lower, in liquid form, to make you
satisfied there is nothing serious the
matter with you. For sale by \V. F.
