m myst^ous stranger
Sheppard and Phillips Released Following Inquest
on Jag. Taylor.
Jury Returns Open Verdict
���Pleads Guilty to Gambling Charge.
A mysterious stranger, wearing a
grey raincoat and a dark soft hat,
(he whereabouts and identification of
whom is still unknown, waa the fea-
lure at tlle Inquest in the Taylor murder case ln the police court last
i ight. held under the supervision of
Coroner Dr. A. L. McQuarrie.
Kre.ni the evidence presented by
carious witnesses, little could be
>'caned as to what the next move
'���ill be, nothing incriminating any
body being given, un\ following an
i pen verdict by the jury. Chief Brad-
: liaiv released the men. Sheppard, of
V.eticouver, and Phillips, of this eity,
who had been held over night as ma-
ii*iial  witnesses.
Crowded Court Room.
Standing room was at a premium
when the proceedings opened at 7
o'clock, the corridor leading to the
court room being crowded, while men
and women lined up against the windows on the north side anxious to
gel a glimpse and possibly hear the
The full verdict was as follows:
"We, the jury, (ind that James W.
Taylor came to his death through
blows received on the head with a
blunt instrument by a person or persons as yet unidentified, between the
hours of 11 and* 12 p.m. on the night
Of Sunday April 12, 11114, in the city
of New Westminster.
"The Jury after due consideration
find that some of the material wit-
ucss"s were not present, which mighi
have added considerable information
in reference to the case and recom-
raend a further rigid investigation of
all occupants or frequenters of Eloff
Nelson's residence on Kelly street on
April 12,  1914."
The jury were Albert Shoelbenger,
.1 tt. Parrett, S. F. Knight, W. T.
Campbell, Edward Kiddie and Robert
Crafg. i
T< day   the  search  wlll  bave  begun
for the  mysterious stranger,  mention j
of  which   cropped   up  on   several   oc ,
caslons last night. He Is the man whe> | ov''r
is supposed to have shadowed Taylor I
from    the    Nelson   house    to   Major
street, where he was struck down by
the   switch   iron.    Failing  in   his   attempt   to  stun  Taylor,  who  retained
ins fenecs and cried out for help, this j
person is   alleged    to   have   doubled \
^^^ along to i
ed all questions levelled at him by
Solicitor W. C. McQuarrie in a
straightforward manner and never
appeared to hesitate. His contention
that he boarded the ear at the switch
was home out by evidence given by
Miss Florence Wharnock, who was
awakened by the cries and noticed
tlle man run along Major street as
the Hurnaby car was passing.
An Alibi Proved.
John C. Phillips, the 11. 0. E. R.
conductor, who frequented the gamb
le.r's den on Sunday, practically
proved an alibi by stating that he
boarded the _ Sapperton car leaving
there af 0:45" o'clock aud stopped off
at the employees headquarters at. the
depot before going home. His evidence was substantiated by Conductor Glanville of the Sappenon car.
Phillips admitted that he had dropped $.10 in the game that night and
that he had made frequent visits to
ths place.
He Went Broke.
John Forrester, a cooper at the B.
C. distillery, residing on Keary street,
proved a newcomer ln ihe way of
evidence. Forrester was mixed up
in the game until 11:80 o'clock when
he played his last hand and "went
bust." He dropped $2H that night,
Leaving the Nelson houBe, Forrester
stated he went home by way of Major
and Columbia streets, noticing on
the way a man on the corner of Slier
broolce street and another on Hospital
Important Evidence.
XV. H. Gray, principal of Richard
McBride school, and residinc on Kelly
street, west of Major street, brought
up the mysterious stranger clue. He
had retired for the night on Sunday
when be and his w'fe heard Taylor's
cries fer help. Slipping on some
clothes, Mr. Gray threw on the porch
light, getting a glimpse of u tall
man dressed in a grey raincoat and
scft felt hat passing from the direction of the cries towards Sherbrooke.
The man quickened his pace when
the light was turned on. At the same
time Mr. Gray heard the Burnaby car
passing, on which the man Sheppard
claims to have boarded. Mr. Gray's
I lestimony appeared to substantiate
j the remarks made by Taylor when he
regained the Nelson house suffering
from the blows, that the man had
turned and had run along Kelly atreet
towards Sherbrooke street. This
stranger, claimed Mr. Gray, could
not have posalbl*? caught the Burnaby
Nelson on the Stand.
Eloff  Nelson   was on  the  stand    a
considerable   length    of  time,    going
the same story as he told    the
police the  morning of    the    murder,
and which was covered in The News
yesterday.    Nelson admitted he acted
as banker and cook In the house frequented by gamblers from Vancouver,
Fraser Mills,  Eburne and  this city.

of Vancouver, latff night  claimed  he
boarded the Burnaby car at the liraid
street  switch   after   beating   bis   way
back along Major street, where Taylor had cried out for help.    Sheppard
explained ihat he ought to have gone
back  to the Nelson house and assist

house besides Nelson, he jumped the

As soon as the copies of the evidence submitted by Vancouver and
New Westminster before the grain
commissioners at Winnipeg in connection with the application for the
government grain elevator, is received
hire. Mayor Baxter of Vancouver will
be asked officially by the council of
this city to withdraw from his case
the obsolete chart he submitted of
the channel in the Kraser and to correct certain statements which are
held  to be absolutely  false.
Mayor Gray at the city council
meeting lasi night made a verbal report of the case presented by the
delegates advocating the selection of
the Fraser river and expressed his
genuine regret at the attitude adopted by Mayor Baxter of Vancouver.
The delegates from the Kraser river
district explained the I.e Baron
scheme and submitted a list of sites
available between the mouth of the
Fraser and the Pitt river, together
with the names of the owners and the
cost of each.
Mayor Gray told of the endeavors
of Mayor Baxter to discredit the
Kraser by the submission of an obsolete chart and the stories of the terrific current, the heavy fogs and ice
in winter, even going so far as to
state that although the fishing industry was of inestimable value, the fish-
! ing nets would prove a drawback to
These allegations were of course
denied and proofs submitted that the
Kraser was navigable at all times and
that there was a minimum depth of

Alderman Annandale moved that
the report be adopted and at ihe
same time referred to the rftport that

W. I.. Darling, one of the delegates,
was given permission to explain ihat
Colonel J. D. TayloT had challenged
the secretary of the board of trade
on this point, but the question was
openly evaded.
Alderman Jardine also expressed
hig regret at Mayor Baxter's uncalled
for criticism and mis-statements and
seconded the motion whicli was carried.
An amusing instance of Mayor Baxter's stand was given by Mayor Gray.
The Vancouver representative had
been telling of the terrible fogs which
hung on the Kraser for days at a
time, when the chairman of the grain
commission remarked that in Vancouver he had experienced the worst
fog he had ever seen. Mayor Baxter's reply to this was that during the
same spell of fog an automobile had
plunged into the icy waters of the

Washington. April 14. ��� President
Wilson today ordered practically the
entire Atlantic fleet to Mexican waters to force a public salute to the
Stars and Stripes from the Huerta
government as an apology for the arrest of American marines at Tampico
last Thursday. No ultimatum has yet
been issued���that is, no specified time
has been set within which the Huerta
government must comply, bui the naval demonstration has been ordered as
a concrete evidence of the fixed determination of the United States to
back up Hear Admiral Mayo's demand for a salute.
Up to tonight General Huerta had
not made satisfactory responses to
that demand.
"Future developments depend upon
Huerta himself," was the way a high
administration official close to the
president summarized the situation.
The decision to send the fleet was
reached after the president and Secre

Everywhere, at the White House,

department the hope was expressed
that the dispatch of the fleet would
not lead to serious consequences and
there was a confident prediction that
General Huerta would see the wisdom
of satisfying the American demand
and close the incident. Officials were
careful to point out that negotiations
with the Huerta government have not
ended and that the way was still open
to General  Huerta  to make amends.

Tlie* feeling of sorrow and regret
over the death of Sir William Whyte
extends over the whole Dominion from
the Atlantic to the Pacific. Among
those who will sincerely deplore bis
death will be H.R.H. the Duke of Connaught. During his stay in Winnipeg
two years ago, H.R.H. with the Princess Patricia, was much in the company of Sir William In public affairs
and on numerous occasions the governor general expressed his regard for
the Canadian railway leader. Other
governors of Canada who have visited
the west in recent yearB met Sir William and were the recipients of kindness at his hands, and his friends on
the other side of the water are consequently numerous and influential, and
his death will be as deeply deplored
there as in Canada.
In railway circles the unexpected
death is naturally most deeply felt.

Appeared in Good Health.
His health had recently appeared
excellent, and although his age was
somewhat advanced, his friends looked forward to an unusual career for
him owing to his singular position in
this city. On several occasions he
had. however, been seriously 111. One
of these attacks prevented his departure for London last spring, at which
time he postponed making a journey
around the world. At the time of the
termination of his active connection
With the C P. R. in 1911, he gave as
one of his reasons for retirement the
desire to -preserve his health. His
condition, he said, was excellent and
he wished that it should continue so.
Unsuspected weaknetses existed, however, and to one of these he succumbed.

General  Creagh   Receives  Deputation
on Eve of Quitting the Service
in India.
Calcutta. April 14. -If is a long
time since a retiring eominander-in-
chlef in India has received any special attention from any section of the
Indian community, but a deputation
consisting of leading Sikhs recently
wailed upon General Sir O'Moore
Cri agh, who is laying down the chief
command of his majesty's Indian
forces after the usual five years' incumbency.
Sir O'Moore Creagh has served in
the Indian army for nearly half a century, having begun as a subaltern in
a Sikh regiment over 47 years ago.
Thtre are many interesting cases ou
record of the esteem and affection
which has resulted from close asso-
c.ation, in barrack and in the field
between these fine soldiers and the
Ciitish officers who have been set
in command over them.
Deputation Presents Addresc.
The depu'aticn, which consisted of
48 Sikh gentlemen, many of them
covered with iiudals. and all of
Ihem very striking locking men, presented an address which read in part
as follows:
"In your person your excellency re
vived    old     traditions     ol     personal
friendship, and    amidst    your    multifarious duties you always found time
ito  cultivate  personal  relations.    You
were never too busy to see a friend;
never iu doubt when a friend sought
your assistance;  and always ready to
make the interests    of your    friends
your  own.     That   is  how   friendships
are made, and this was the secret of
ibe  success of  those  who jnade  this
vast  empire.     This  is  the  only  way
for the future to secure loyalty    and
trength  for the country.    It  is per
mand. They are moving always; at
tacking, plundering and at the same
time advancing nearer Pekin. The
men are armed and feed on the country  as they go.
The danger lies in the fact that the
whole country ls quite ripe for another
revolution as the discontent with Yuan
is widespread. North of Pekin the
revolution against Yuan ls stronger
than it was at the time the movement
was against the Manchus. This will
be denied in many quarters but it is

General  Creagh  Replies.
Tiie reference to "five short years,"
is  to  the conventional   period  during
which the chief offices In  India    are
held.    .
S'r O'Moore Creash, in reply, pointed out that after nearly half a century's service the time must soon
have come, in any case, for him to
resign his high position.
Nevertheless it is generally admit
ted thai the Sikhs are right, and
that when an administrator in whom
the country has confidence arises, it
is not well to circumscribe his term
of office bv the ordinary rule, lt is
ilso admitted that India Is passing
through a somewhat critical phase.

Prof. Huebner expressed no opinion I

out of his statement that the house

Tbe American Association For Ihe

recently gave out n new cure for laziness.   Tbe cure Is to wear something
The Idea Is this: Tbe society bas
come to the conclusion that certain colors work on a man's nerves to such an
extent that they control bis destiny.
Kor Instance, a person wbo sleeps in
a room papered In white Is calm and
collected. Likewise tbe man who
wears a green eyeshade. The green
bns a certain effect on the retina,
which In turn communicates the color
to tbe brain, the result being that the
eyes are soothed, and consequently tbe
whole body Is at peace with tbe world.
Ited. the society says, has a tendency
to arouse any one wearing it.
Cinder In the Eye.
A railroad eugiucer wtm gets a cinder In his eye never rhbs It; he rules
the eye thnt has no el nder In It.   This
starts tbe tears to flow In both eyes

Rearrange Furniture Often.
In some houses one enters the nr-
���nugetneut of the furniture never varies from year to year.  In other bouses
lhe furniture Is changed about every
week or two.   lt may be easily .judged
which practice is the more agreeable
aud refreshing for ail concerned.   One
woman is on record whei actually stuek
pins in tiie carpet nn sweeping days to
indicate for tbe maid the exact spots
where feet of tables nnd chairs must b��
set again when the room was finished.
This was going to extremes, but there
are many people who are Inst ns narrow and prejudiced in their ideas.    It
Is a good thing to change furniture
about,    it gives the relief of variety
and often  increases  our  appreciation
of the beauty of some particular piece.
Furthermore, the rearrangement Of furniture helps to develop the quality of
resourcefulness  and  discourages  narrow prejudice.

of the proposed registration bill whicli

letter on ibis Important subject was;
read to the meeting for Miss Ken-'
neely. who had worked on the bill in
Ontario. In the letter Bhe emphasized
the necessity for state registration in
classes, providing for both the fully
qualified graduate nurse and the
lower grade of household trained
nm ses, who might In* equally efficient
and trustworthy in the cases of ordinary illness, us was the graduate nurse
in more critical cases, Miss Wright
dwelt especially on this aspect of the
question, and Bald it was very necessary for the graduate nurses to look
aii r the less ecientlflcally trained
nurses, and to educate them to ivcog
nlze the need for registration. Thai
registration was necessary for the
public interest as well a*s in the Interest of the nurses themselves was
further emphasized.
Following the president's address

| The attorney general. Hon. Dr. Young
iand other numbers of the legislature
had  been  interviewed    by    a  special
1 committee   from  the association,  and
'. laier in the session  it  had been    ar*
tanged thai    the    committee    should
i meet a deputation  of six ladies, who
i were, however,  unsuccessful    in    ar*

Asuncion. Paraguay, April 14. The
press Is seriously discussing the military outlook, in view of what former
minister to 'Bolivia, Major Kurenio
Oaray, lias had to say since returning
from La Paz. The borde#questlon
has not yet been solved satisfactorily
and this is an increasing cause for
apprehension. On top of all that is being said regarding a possible conflict
With t.'.ii* neighboring country, the Ho-
livian government continues to materially strengthen its army. The arrival or German officers at Asuncion
for the purpose of drilling the troops
here is a sign that Paraguaj also de-
sins io be  prepared.
Attention is drawn to a number of
articles published over the signature
Of the Paraguayan statesman Itenja-

articles Mayor Garay had been ii^
Btructed to examine into Bolivia's ca
pacity to resist, an attack ftom the

When Summer
Stops the Swing
Most of us can remember the school lesson in the
law of accumulated motion���momentum.
If you exert a pound of pressure against a man in
a swing, you'll start him moving slowly "to and
fro." If you continue to exert a pound of pressure against him every time thc swing makes a
trip, you'll soon have him going so high that he
almost turns the whole circle. If you stop pushing, the momentum will die out and the swing
come to rest at "dead centre.",
Winning trade follows thc same natural laws.
Advertisements are the force behind the swing of
public favor. Kach new advertisement increases
the momentum. Finally, the accumulated force
of these numerous impulses swings indifference to
the buying point.
If you stop Advertising, you lose momentum.
The moral of which is:
Don't stop the business swing in Summer.
Keep adding  the pounds of Advertising

Senile- tlirilliug <�� periences once befell Frederick Chumberltu while be
was exploring Uie Alps. In tbe Wide
World Magazine be writes of nn adventure thut befell hiiu ou tbe after-
noun uf u September day when be was
descending the snow slope of a mountain:
"Suddenly I found myself tn front of
a particularly nasty serae. or Ice ridge,
that gave very little footbuld. Tbe
surface was uot broken and crumbly,
but Just smooth, treacherous Ice. However. 1 was not going to be daunted, so
I wormed my way up und wus ubout
to descend tbe other side wben without warning my feet shot from under
inc. and I started careering down the
i>i"|ee ut break neck speed.
"Down I slid, straight through a funnel sbu|ied hole Into n partly formed
crevasse. I brought up sharply against
u small bar of lee that only Just prevented ine from continuing my bead-
long Wireer into u gaping chasm below.
"For a few seconds I Iny half stunned: then I carefully got on my feet,
felt my body ull over to see Hint no
beuies hail been broken and looked
round for my ice ux, but thut bud dis*
"1 saw a slight crack lu tbe surface
of one of the sides, nnd I tried to draw
myself up. but my Angers could not
j Pet a firm hold in tbe slippery lee. aud
I was soon forced to give that up.
Then I tried lying flat on my back ln
the funnel through which 1 had entered my prison and. liruily planting
my knees against its sloping ruuf. endeavored to work myself buck. Here
too. I failed.
"Itelng by this time quite desperate,
I took out my little pocket knife to try
to cut steps in the slope. M.v still turn
lingers let the knife slip at tbe first
attempt, and. although I groped uboiet
for n long time. I failed to recover it.
"My last chance had gone witb the
knife.   The darkness creeping on aud
enveloping   everything,   the   dead   silence, tbe bitter cold, were all begiu-
j ning to take effect, aud  I groaned at
the prospect ot tbe long night ln front
of me.   I dared uot lean tou fur back,
fur that slender bar of Ice might give
way.   I called uut loudly at Intervals,
but the sound wus stilled by the over-
banging walls.
"Soon it wus pitch dark, and to while
sway the time and keep m.v spirits up
1 loudly sang a popular American song.
But soon my thoughts became gloomy
again. There was no sound but an eerie
drip, drip, dowu below, anil sometimes
i the grinding, tearing, booming collapse
of a whole serae would set my nerves
j quivering.   I shivered iue'essantly. for
1 ] was wet through from constant con-
j tiie*t with the ice. and the night seeui-
; ed Interminable.
"VV lieu I was on the point of utter col
lapse the first gray daylight mercifully
begun to tilter Into my prison. Now I
must make by last desperate attempt
to escape.
"As ll forlorn hope I looked ubout
again for uiy knife. My eyes caught a
glint on a fan shaped piece of Ice, unit
there, just over the dark elitism, where
providentially it hud fallen the night
before, I spied it. Determined not to
lose It again. I attached It to my wrist
by n piece of string and started digging at the steep Ice slope.
"Three and u half hours I slaved In
the Ice cavern, and then was uble to
crawl up, digging my pees In ut every
step, till I could draw myself up Into
comparative safety on the ledge above.
1 lay there, gasping, for u few seconds;
then, taking the greatest precautions
all the while, I passed between the remaining crevasses nnel at lust descend
ed safely to tbe linn rocks."
