TRUMPBB AOQUITTBD AT CLINTON
SPRING  A8SIBBS.
Dan Smith la Handed Five Team For
Being* Too Familiar With a Gun.
. -A Couple of Fatalities at
Ashcroft.
At the spring assizes held at Clinton
last weeks the grand jury brought in
true bills in Rex vs. Daniel Smith, who
was charged with intent to kill, and in
Rex vs. Frank Trumper for murder.
It developed in the case of Smith that
he had been hitting the boose pretty
freely and had picked a quarrel with
Annie Swanson and had gone to his tent
to secure a rifle with which to shoot her.
Smith returned and took a shot at the
woman through the open door of Beech-
er's hotel, whereupon Beechergrappled
with him and tried to take the rifle
away. Smith was too strong for him,
however, so he called upon Harry Dur-
rell for assistance. When Durrell approached, Smith also threatened to take
a shot at him, and did so when the for-
mer was getting up close.
The jury returned a verdict of guilty
on the first count, that of shooting at
Annie Swanson with intent to kill.
Judge Morrison sentenced Smith to
five year in the penitentiary at New
Westminster.
Trumper Acquitted.
The chief witness in Rex vs. Trump-
. er was George Stanfield, woo had formed a partnership with Trumper and Coleman, and it was while they were at
Pouce Coupe Prairie trapping and land
locating that the trouble arose.
The morning of the tragedy Stanfield
had gone over an old line of traps and
had left Coleman boiling up lard, and
Trumper busy making a wooden washbowl with chisel and mallet.
Upon his return to the shack in the
evening, he discovered Coleman's dead
body.       '
Trumper was absent at this time so
Stanfield went off to secure a neighbor
and notify the authorities.
Trumper was on hand next morning
and at first denied any knowledge of the
tragedy, but finally admitted to Sar-
geant Anderson that he did the killing
in self defence, saying Coleman took a
rifle and threatened to shoot him.
Trumper thereupon struck Coleman on
the back of the head with a mallet,
knocking him into the fire, where he fell
face downwards.
Witnesses testified as to the dislike of
Coleman towards Trumper, and that
the former had a reputation of being a
dangerous man. Trumper was shown
to be of good temper and nervous disposition.
After being out thirty minutes the
jury returned an acquittal verdict.

THB ALLBOBD MANIPULATION OF
BBAND BY JOHNNY HALL.
R. L. Clark and G. A. Lafferty, Nicola, visited this hub of commerce yesterday, and greatly enjoyed the exhil- j
iarating ozone and the absence of mos-
quitos.
C. M. Newkirk returned on Monday
from his trip with the Coldwater mail
feeling quite ill from asthmatic trouble,
and has since been confined to the house
but is now.gradually improving.
Fatalities At Ashcroft.
The Ashcroft Journal reports two sad
fatalities at that place during the past
week.
Phil Openheim and a companion whose
name was not known were swimming in
Barnes' lake, when the latter was taken
with a cramp and sank. His body was
recovered next day.
On Wednesday Billy Bearess, who
drives for Phil Parkes, had a runaway,
and in endeavoring to stop the mad rush
of the wild and excited team which was
tearing down Railroad avenue, fell off
the high seat and was jammed between
a telegraph pole and his rig. He received a broken spine, from the effect
of which he died, despite the efforts of
the best medical treatment.
A leap year dance Was held in Hyland
hall on Monday night, and the large
number present enjoyed themselves to
the limit. Many visitors from outside
places got in on the good time. A
supper was served about midnight, and
the mazy whirl was kept up until daybreak. The music was all that could
be desired and consisted of violins, piano, coronet and mouth-organ. The
young men came off lucky, as not one
proposal has been reported. This is
explained by the fact that nearly all the
marriageable maids present had said,
"Sure, Mike!" before leap year came
'round.
Bmplre Day At the School.
The following was crowded out of last
week's issue owing to lack of space:
Last Friday afternoon Empire Day
was observed in the local school. Secretary Cleasby, of the trustee board,
and about twenty others interested in
the school work helped things along by
their presence. The scholars were put
through various exercises of their regular work and the visitors were agreeably surprised at the udmirable manner
in which they acquitted themselves. An
entertaining program of recitations,
patriotic songs, etc., concluded a wry
happy afternoon. The teacher, lira.
Priest, was deservedly complimented on
all sides on the general proficiency of
the scholars in her charm
 i	
The Preliminary Hearing Will Probably be Concluded Today ���Indian
Mack Will Answer Charge
at Nicola Tomorrow.
\
What may prove to be a serious
case came up. for a hearing yesterday before Justices of the Peace
Cleasby and Tut ill, when Johnny
Hall, a Coldwater Indian, was
charged with illegally having in his
possession a horse belonging to
Daniel Mclnnes, of the*B. C. Beef
market, Merritt.
Johnny was driving a four horse
team through the camp on Tuesday
evening, while Mr. Mclnnes and
Constable Clark were talking near
Jackson's store. The former spotted one of the animals as having a
very familiar appearance, and followed the wagon a piece up the
road to get a look at the brand.
Being satisfied as to the identity of
the horse in question, a neat grey,
he told Hall the animal belonged to
htm and requested that it be unhitched. Hall refused to comply
and kept driving on, so Dan immediately got the constable, and
when they overtook the outfit, the
Indian obeyed the majesty of the
law and the horse was taken to Dr.
Tutill's stables.
Mr. Mclnnes says he purchased
ed the horse from Mr. Armytage
and placed his brand of 5 on the
animal's left shoulder. He was
seen on the hills regularly last year
but this winter could not be found.
A Siwash witness corroborated this.
The horse is now branded 55, but
the second 5 is smaller than the
first, of different shape and evidently is of much more recent date.
Hall's brand is 55, but the mark
is made with one iron applied twice
so that both figures should be the
same in shape and age. The second 5 on the disputed horse does
not correspond with either the Hall
or Mclnnes brand. It is also contended that Hall brands on the
right shoulder and not the left.
Johnny claims he obtained the
animal from his wife's inoiher.
The case occupied some time yesterday, and was adjourned till 3 p.
m. today to enable defence to get
more evidence.
It is understood that the accused
has already served a three-year term
for horse stealing.
Constable Clark arrested Indian
Mack of the Sullivan creek reserve,
at Stump lake this week on a charge
of having sold to Joe Collett a two-
year-old heifer, the property of Pat
Cantlin. The Siwash admits the
heifer is not his, but says he did
not know this at time of selling, as
the animal had strayed into his
bunch unknown to him. The case
will bo aired at Nicola-tomorrow.
CHIPS FBOM THB BLOCK.
Two men were shot at Savona the
other day���and well shot.
Ashcroft is endeavoring to frame up
a 1st of July blow-out.
Mrs.  R. K. Evans, one of Clinton's
oldest residents, died May 20th.
Thos. Kirk and Miss Irene Evans, of
Ashcroft, said farewell to single blessedness last week.
The anti-gambling lid is again on in
the neck of the woods known as Fernie.

The Douglas Lake Cattle Co. is having a fine new set of weighing scales installed at the C. P. R. stock yards at
Nicola.
A Kamloops barkeep refused a man a
drink the other day, telling him he was
already ' 'as full as a tank.'' The drunk
backed out saying, "au reservoir."
Ripe strawberries are reported at
Pentiction, banana blossoms at Cran-
brook and a wagon load of drunks at
Keremeos, but for the best coal on
earth ring up Merritt.
J. B. Greaves, of the Douglas Lake
Cattle Co., was in Nicola on Tuesday
superintending the shipping of two carloads of cattle to the coast. The company will ship nine more cars from that
point next Tuesday.
This year the crop of June weddings
promises to be enormous. The leap-year
girl is getting there with all her heart���
and both feet. It is even rumored that
Col. Lowery, of the Greenwood Ledge,
has been bamboozled into saying, "This
is so suddink."
Fine String of Horses.
Murdock Mclntyre arrived in Merritt
last week with a string of twenty as
fine horses as one could wish to see, and
remained a couple of davs resting up
the outfit and visiting his brother, Wm.
Mclntyre of the Coldwater hotel. The
bunch consisted of some fine specimens
of general purpose and carriage horses
and a prettily matched pair of pintos.
All were in fine condition with the exception of one of a matched team of
browns, which got in the way of a kick
from a heavyweight mare and had to
camp here for repairs. Mr. Mclntyre,
who was en route for the coast, made
the drive from Phoenix, over the Anarchist mountain and through the Similkameen. He intended to go over the
Hope mountains' trail, but had to
abandon the plan on account of snow.
Consequently, the horses were driven to
Spences Bridge and took crated Pullmans to Vancouver on Monday. They
will all command the long price at the
Terminal City.
Cedio Will Be Hanged.
At the Greenwood assizes on Wednesday of last week Francisco Cedio, an
Italian, was found guilty of having
blown up the hotel at Niagara on Nov.
10,1906, and caused the death of Louise
King. He was sentenced by Justice
Clement to be hanged at Kamloops on
Friday, July 31.
The trial lasted only a day, during
which many Italian and other witnesses
were examined, among them being two
of his fellow countrymen from Salt
Lake City,. and Mrs. King, mother of
the murdered girl. The jury was out
an hour when they returned a verdict
of guilty:'
CHRISTEN   BRIDGE
NBW   BBIDGB   OVER   OOLDWATBB
FORMALLY OPBNBD.
The Structure la Perfect In Bvery Detail-Named in Honor of William
Voght.���A. Jackson la First
to Drive Over.
On Saturday morning last the fine,
new government bridge over the Cold-
water river was formally declared open
for traffic by Wm. Voght, in the presence of quite a number of citizens. By
common consent the bridge was named
after Mr. Voght, who so generously
donated the right-of-way through his
property. The christening was accompanied by a few short orations, and "a
long and useful career" to the new
structure was drank in rounds of aqua
pura, with Scotch trimmings.
The work of construction occupied
just one month and was in charge of
D. G. Sutherland, superintendent and
Gerald Fitzgerald, foreman.
The bridge is a Howe truss with span
of 103 feet and about 80 feet of approach. The structure is most complete
and substantial in every particular, and
it requires but little inspection to show
that it ia a mechanical triumph, and the
men under whose supervision it was-
constructed are entitled to every praise
for the accurate work done and the attention paid to each detail.
The bridge, which has been a necessity for some time, gives direct connection between Merritt and Middlesboro
and cuts off a great deal from the
old round-about route.
The C. P. R. section men have put in
a crossing, cattle guards and fencea
where the road crosses the railway, and
the government road gang is expected
shortly to put the thoroughfare in better condition. As soon as traffic warrants it the grading will be substantially done.
The men are now at work giving the
new bridge a dress of white paint, which
will add much to its already fine appearance.
One thing that will ring down the
annals of history in connection with the
new bridge is the fact that A. Jackson,
the general merchant, was the first to
drive over the completed structure. It
is always safe to lay odds that Archie
will be there with the foremost when it
comes to anything pertaining to the
benefit of the community.
Here's hoping the anarchists or Fenians may never dynamite the Voght
bridge!
General Buller Dead.
General Redvers Henry Buller, who
had been ill for some weeks died in
London on Tuesday. He was born in
1839. He was commander of the Boer
forces in South Africa during the Boer
War.
General Buller entered the army in
1868 and in 1891 he had risen to the
rank of Lieutenant-General. He saw
active service in many parts of the
world.
He became well known during the
Boer War as the man who relieved
Ladysmith. He went to South Africa
in 1899, first as General Commanding
the forces in South Africa and afterwards as General Officer Commanding
in Natal. He conducted the march for
the relief of Ladysmith, which was successfully accomplished after ah investment of 118 days, and subsequently he>
conducted the operations that resulted
in the expulsion of the Boer army from

The officers of the Vancouver
Kennel Club offer a reward for the
detection of dog thieves. We know
of some places where those suffering from dog-kleptomania can obtain rewards for stealing or otherwise making 'way with bum members of the canine tribe.
Prize-ring fanatics may now relax the tension a little by turning
aw,ay from the sporting page and
taking a run through the society
items and the Sunday school lesson
���for at last champion Tommy
Burns has signed articles to fight
Jack Johnson, the big negro, in
Nevada for. a purse of $35,000.
Burns is clever, game, and has a
punch. Johnson is also clever and
���can hit hard, and has Tommy beat
in weight and reach; but the dusky
boxer is generally handicapped by
a preponderance of cold feet when
itcomes to hard mixing. The odds
will be on the foxy Canadian.
It was five years ago last Monday
that the McBride government first
went into office, and the changes
wrought by the admistration for
the benefit of this province during
that time are many and will be remembered when the sands of time
are falling many years hence. At
present Premier McBride is on a
tour of the upper country, accompanied by his colleagues, Hon. H. E.
Young, minister of education, and
W. J. Bowser attorney-general. At
every place they have visited so far
a rousing welcome has been accorded thernV ..The number of banquets
they ar;e compelled tr3 w.ade through,
the .numerous representative delegations that wait upon them, to say
nothing of the enthusiastic mass
meetings, make it truly a tour triumphant, and proves that the people
of B. C. are more than satisfied with
-"Better Terms Dick" on the job.
During the past winter arid spring
*'$he city of Vancouver has had her
own troubles with hordes of unemployed men, and for a time hundreds
were fed and housed by the city.
The majority of these men were
honest laborers who came from the
east and from the old country expecting to grab high assaying jobs
as soon as they landed in the much
advertised Terminal City, the situation at the coast being grossly
misrepresented by immigration and
railway grafters; others were hobos,
who wouldn't labor except on a
chain-gang, and continually worked
the sad, sad tale for two-bit handouts and butted around the cheap
bars for free booze; others, again
were hold-up artists and other desperados from over the boundary,
who took advantage of the strenuous times to rob respectable citizens
and cause the local dailies to squirt
hot metal at the police force. Now,
however, the situation is much relieved.- Hundreds of men were
taken up to the Prince Rupert dis
trict during the past three months
.for grading and construction work
and this week comes word that be
tween three and six hundred men
will be hired at Vancouver within
the next few days to work on the
Guggenheim ditches and flumes in
the Klondike during the present
summer. For the next few months
Vancouver may shelf her burglar
alarms/and the worthy citizen
may pack his jag and wallet home
at 2 a. m. with impunity.
