BURNED TO DEATH
DALTON P. MARP0L1 PBRI8HBD IV
FIRB AT HIS RANCH.
Mn. Marpole and Children tt Kamloops
at Time of Fire.  Hired Man Has
Narrow Bicape From
Building.
The Twenty One Mile
House at Dot station was destroyed by fire Tuesday night
and Dalton P Marpole the
owner perished in the flames.
Such was the sad news that
spread over the valley on Wednesday morning.
On Tuesday altemoon Mrs.
Marpole and two children and
her mother left for Kam'oops
to visit with triends. Mr. Marpole and a hired man, J. Walton, remaining at the ranch.
After dinner the two spent
the evening in reading and
about nine o'clock, bidding
each other good night, retired.
Shortly after midnight Walton
awakened and found his room
full of smoke and almost suffocated, he gave what alarm as
was possible and grabbing his
trousers broke the window in
his room and onto the porch,
slid off to the ground. Seeing
flames issuing from the house
he ran down to the station and
aroused the section men who
returned with him. The house
was all in flames by this time
and no sign of Mr. Marpole,
and nothing could be done to
save the building which was
beyond control and in a short
time was a mass of burning
embers.
The origin of the fire will
remain a mystery, but the supposition is that it started from
one of the fires left burning to
warm thehouse during the night.
After the fire had subsided
search was made and the charred remains of Mr. Marpole
were" found near one of tbe
back doors, lying on its face,
the supposition being that the
deceased awakening and finding the other exits shut off by
the flames and smoke attempted get out of the building by
the way of the pantry and was
overcome just as he reached
the door leading outside of the
building.
A special train left Nicola in
the afternoon with the coroner,
who viewed the body and tak
ing the evidence of Walton,
the remains were placed in a
casket and taken to Kamloops
-where interment took place on
Thursday.
The deceased was about 28
years of age and was the second son of R. Marpole, executive of the C. P. R., at Vancouver, his father and brothers
meeting the body at Spences
Bridge Wednesday evening
going to Kamloops to attend
the last sad rites.
" Dot" as hewas familiariiy
called, was well known, having
resided in this province since
childhood, and it will be with
regret that his many friends
will learn of his untimely end.
He had resided at the Twenty
One Mile ranch with hfc family for over two years and his
many kind acts and good qualities can be testified to by all
who knew him.
The widow and children and
relatives have the sincere sympathy of all in their loss.
CHARGES   DENIED
HON. W J. BOWSBR SEEKS TO MEET
DUNCAN ROSS.
MINERAL CLAIM TANGLE.
In the supreme court at Vancouver week the case of th e
Hawkeye Investment Co., of
Portland, who are suing Emil
Voight and Mary Voight of
Princeton and J. W. Cooke of
Vancouver for some $10,000
worth of notes and the foreclosure of certain rich mineral
claims in the Similkameen. It
was suggested by Mr. McCros-
san, who mentioned the matter
in supreme court chambers, on
behalf of Mr. and Mrs. Voight,
that the J. W. Cooke who is
cited with them as co-defendant
is no other than the Hawkeye
company, and he applied for
an order of discovery. Mr,
Justice Morrison reserved his
decision.
Senator McMullen introduced a
bill to increase to $500 the fine or
make six months' imprisonment
the penalty for selling liquor to a
railroad man on duty.
James Mooney died at Merritt this
morning-. The deceased was about BO
yean of age and had lived in this section during the past year. He had

engaged with the Diamond Vale company. Death was due to heart failure.
The funeral will be held in Nicola tomorrow afternoon.

Victoria for a short visit.
Issues Challenge to Liberal Member to
Meet Him on Platform   Will Be
ln Yale Cariboo During the
Federal Campaign.
On the adjournment of the
provincial legislature on Thursday night Hon. Mr. Bowser,
rose to a question of privilege
on a despatch from Ottawa,
in which Duncan Ross, M. P.,
was reported as saying in the
house of commons that he had
made a contract with Gotoh to
bring in Japanese laborers for
the C. P. R., and that, in drafting the Natal Act last year, he
had purposely allowed an error
to remain in order to make it
unworkable, and to shield his
client Gotoh. To these statements he gave an unqualified
denial- He said that the Lib.
erals were fond of using these
tactics towards him, and described Duncan Ross as "the
muck rake" they used in the
house of commons for such
work. The member for Delta
had also stated that he misled
people at the last election by
a story that the Grand Trunk
Pacific was going to bring in
50,000 Japanese- All he could
say was that his authority for
that had been a gentleman high
in the rank of the Liberal party
in Vancouver. He had been
before the public for the past
seventeen years, and Mr. Ross
for about the same length of
time, and he would leave it to
the public to say whose statements should be believed.
When Mr. Goth does return
I shall have him make a statement regarding this charge by
Duncan Ross. In the meantime I challenge Duncan Ross
to meet me on the platform at
a public meeting in Vancouver
at any date that may suit him.
If he refuses to meet me then
I will go to his home city,
Greenwood, or I will meet him
in Vernon, Ashcroft, Kamloops
or any Interior city, and if he
refuses all these suggestions I
will go to his district of Yale
Cariboo at the next federal election campaign and there at
meetings in the district, debate
the question and challenge him
to reply.
He can't decline to meet me
in his own constituency in the
approaching federal campaign,
and I will go upon the platform where speaks. Duncan
Ross has either got to prove
his charges or publicly retract
sooner or later."
"AT home ���
A most enjoyable "at home"
was given by Mrs. Grimmett and
Mrs. Strickland in Pooley's hall on
Tuesday evening. There was a
large attendance of guests from all
parts of the district and dancing
was kept up till an early hour on
Wednesday morning. Those who
attended spent a most enjoyable
evening and nothing was wanting
on the part of the hostesses of the
evening to make the function the
brilliant and successful gathering
it proved to be.
Among those who attended outside of Nicnla were: The Misses
Giiichon's, Mr. and Mrs. F. W.

EDITORIAL NOTES.
Attorney General Bowser
has repudiated the charges
made by Duncan Ross in the
House of Commons last week
and has challenged Ross to appear on the platform with him.
Ross will have the time of his
life when Bowser runs up
against him.
One of the most important
pieces of legislation which has
made its appearance at this
session of Dominion House
was introduced by Mr. Alcorn,
the Conservative member for
Prince Edward. Mr. Alcorn
seeks to amend the Dominion
Election Act aud his resolution
contains some drastic clauses
which have the object of cleansing crooked election methods,
m?king bogus ballot boxes an
impossibility, and putting an
end to the corrupting of constituencies by promises of large
expenditures of the people's
money in the shape of public
buildings and works.
A resolution was also passed
for the production of all corres
pondence between the governments of Canada and  British
Columbia relative to the application of the G. T. P. to ac
quire a portion of the Metlak-
atla   Indian  reserve, and the
federal question of the provincial claim to the Indian reser
ves through reversionary rights.
I tell you its a busy day,
When Annie comes to scrub.
Our spirits ars not always gay
When Ani.io MM to scrub.
She'll open wide the oven door
And place her feet upon its floor,
It matters not what's in before;
Ere she arrives to scrub.
She'll say she did not break her fast
Before she came to scrub,
(But nuisances will always last
As long as there's a tub.)
For KloochmencomeandKloockmengo,
ftWW ranchcrie to far below,
The Twenty-one, they only know
Where last they cached their grub.
At length she'll sprawl upon the floor,
In precedence to scrub,
Our soap bar, then a dazen more,
She still ni mamls to scrub.
With sigh and grumble in Chinook;
With English screech and Siwash croak,
In each our timid guest bespoke.
Poor Annie loves to scrub!
Oh, hasten on the time when all,
Our Annie loves to scrub!
And hurry at our beck and call,
And bring along a tub.
Oh, sweet will life l>e then to live,
When Kloochmcn come their help to
give,
And keep their feet on the qui vive,
When Annie's come to scrub.
