A new townsite was laid out at Sapperton and the government house, governor's residence, barracks and See

government buildings went to ruin

ed in the bank and accordingly he
went on down the street. He had
proceeded but a few yards when he
turned and saw a man, wearing a
dark overcoat, dash out of the bank
and walk very quickly around the
comer, Weibe noticing something like
a revolver in his left hand. The witness turned toward the bank again
and heard a shot. He crossed the
road and saw Arnold lying on an ash
pile'. The other man stepped over
Arnold's prostrate form and gathered
up some money he had dropped in his
flight. He then turned and ran to
the automobile which awaiterd him
about a block away.

both cross-examination and the preceding examination by Mr. Hastings were
much dulayed by the court Interpreter
being unfamiliar with the dialect of
Weibe, who is a Mennonlte. Another
interpreter experienced the same difficulty and finally Dr. McTavlsh. a
witness who will later appear, was
sworn In, his residence in Plum Coulee
having familiarized him with dialects
such as  Weibe's.

Welbe'a cross-examination concluded. Cornelius Thiesen was called.
Thiesen had seen the bank manager
chase the man in the dark overcoat
who came out of the bank; had seen
the manager suddenly fall and then
heard a crack, which he believed was
the firing of a shot. The man in black
he said had turned back and from
around the prostrate body of the
stricken banker had gathered up the
money which was scattere-d on the
ground,  resting  one  hand  on   Arnold.
The manager had called "help" once.
The man had then run down the lane
and he had seen that his face v.as
masked. Asked why he said masked,
the witness stated that he was masked "from below up to the nose." Ask-
i'il as to the material the mask was
made of. witness said "it looked
hairy." Referring back witness said
the banker caught hold of the man
from behind putting his arms around
the man's body. At this time he elid

had anything in their hands. He did
not look quickly enough.

Paris, March 19.-Public opinion
continues** lo be deeply occupied with
the Calmette tragedy 'and the resulting political agitation, although Interest was less outwardly manifested
today. The general interest of the
pleasure-loving Parisians was centred
in the Ml-Careme parade of which
confetti battles in the boulevards were
a feature.
A few excited students In Paris and
Versailles attempted demonstrations
against M. Caillaux, but the police
had no difficulty in dispersing them.
Minister Resigns.
The principal development of the
day was the resignation of Krnest
Monis from the ministry of marine
and it is understood that his withdrawal from the cabinet will be permanent, not temporary, as was at
first expected, whatever may be the
finding of the investigating committee.
Various names were mentioned in
the lobbies of the chamber for the
post of minister of marine, but Premier Doumerge has decided to take no
action for the present.
Expect Demonstration.
While some kind of a demonstration by tbe anti-Republicans is certain to be attempted at the funeral of
M. Calmette tomorrow, the police do
not anticipate serious trouble. Nevertheless M. Hennion, the prefect of
Paris, has made extensive preparations to preserve order.
Saint l,azare prison, where Mme.
Caillaux occupies a cell, was again
the object of interest today by many
hundreds of persons who seemed
deeply interested in those who passed
within its doors.
Mme. Caillaux. it is said, is beginning to show the effects of her   imprisonment.    Her young daufhter by
l an Mftltor ��*| '

husband and her attorney, M. I jibori,
called this afternoon and found her
in a depressed and nervous state.
To Appeal for Mercy.
M. Labori informed Mme. Caillaux,
it is said, that she had no alternative
but to throw herself on the mercy
of the court and that in her defence
he could not make any reflections on
M. Calmette. In fact, he explained, it
was only on this condition that he
agreed to undertake her defence and
he had made this plain to both the
family of his late friend, M. Calmette
and M. Caillaux.
The former minister of finance said
he understood M. i^abori's at'itude
and approved of it, adding:
"I have asked you only to defend
my wife: I do not want you to attack
M. Calmette."
Consider Case.
The senatorial committee, under the
presidency of M. Ribet. to which the
chamber's bill to confer full judicial
powers on the Rochette investigating
committee was referred, took the matter under consideration  today.
Senator Richard considered that
full judicial powers were not warranted and presented au amendment
giving the committee power to punish
witnesses, who either refused to appear or take the oath, and providing
for a punishment of from two to five
years' imprisonment and a tine for
those bearing false witness or
suborning witnesses before the committee.
It is understood the government
will accept the amendment and that
the bill will pass the house tomorrow.

but that it has carried itself so well in the face of difficulties, many of which are not part of the troubles of older
banking sisters, is a matter for congratulation and a credit to both the bank and the province.
The establishment of the Bank of Vancouver was the
result of a popular demand for such an institution in British Columbia. The people of the west are nothing if not
independent and they desired to see a bank of their own
doing business here. This feeling did not reflect on the
other banks whose headquarters are in the east, for there
are opportunities in this province for them all. It was
simply the westerner's desire to show that, while he was
willing that eastern financial houses should handle much
of his business, still he wished it known that he was able
to do some of it for himself. The Bank of Vancouver was
the direct outcome of this sentiment and its successful
career in the face of many difficulties has earned it not a
few friends.

Passed Away.
Victoria, March 19.���A highly ro-'
spec-ted pioneer resident eif Victoria,!
and one who, up to the time of his
death at an early hour yesterday, had
the honor of being the oldest living
navigator oil the Pacific coast, has
passed peacefuly away in the person
of Captain Oeorge Brown. He was taken ill on Sunday and the end came
in sleep, not unexpected, owing to his
advanced age. The late Captain
Ilrowu was a native of Liverpool,
where he was born on December 24,
le,32, and was therefore in liis eighty-
second year.

Captain Brown came of seafaring
stock, his father being engaged in the
coasting trade in the British waters.
At the age of thirteen he took to the
sea 'himself, becoming captain's boy
in the service of the Cunard line between his home port and New Vork.
After some years of this he sailed on
clipper ships, and as an apprentice on ;
the ship Adam ixidge he rounded the
Horn on a voyage' to San Francisco. I
This was about 1850.
Came to B. C. in 1852.
in IS52 he again sailed to this
coast, this time on board the barken-1

C.oing into the service    of   Joseph

j deal of coast'ng and trading with the '
; Indians on the West Coast.    For four
i years he was in command of the An-
I nie  Heck,   a   well-known   schooner  of
those days.     Utter he  was  placed  in

In more recent years Captain Brown |
was  in  the  service  of  the  Canadian '
Pacific Navigation company and con- I
tinned in the service with the British
Columbia  Coast service of the Canadian  Pacific railway.    For a time he
was   master   of   the   Maude   on   the
West Coast run, and was an officer on
the Princess Louise and other steamers   on   the   northern   run.     He   also
spent   six   months   in   the    north     In
charge  of  the  Boscowitz  boat,  which
was  chartered   by  the  late   Mr.   William Ogilvie, Seven years ago Captain
Brown decided to retire.

Since then it has been shown thai the

Wickersham Act Interpreted by Court
in   Lawsuit   for   Claim   in
Cordova, Alaska, March 19.���Judge
Predi ink   M.   Brown,  of  the  federal
court, yesterday handed down a decision In the Chisana mining case of
C. ii. Likalts vs William a. Johnson,
involving claim No. 1 above discovery
on Bonanza creek. The decision establishes tiie right of the defendant
to title-- to the ground, and Is one of
the most important rulings ever made*
iu Alaska, as it is the first Interpretation of the Wickersham act of August   1,  1912.
Contention of Plaintiff.
Action by the plaintiff was based on
the contention that the agent of the
defendant had failed to comply with
the lav. governing the location of
placer claims, inasmuch as he bad
failed to nh a power of attorney for
his principal in the district in which
the ground was located, previous to
locating the ground.
Evidence was introduced by the defence showing that the claim had been
staked for Johnson by William E,
James on a power of attorney drawn
In Dawson, dated June 1, 19'JH; tbat
when Jume.H  had  gone   to  Chisana   he
had taken ihe jmver of attorney with
him, but bail left it at his cabin, 40
mibs from the headwaters of the
Chisana, when he had made the
cover.*, on Bonanza.
Hears of Law.
Nelson, his partner, had gone
Dawson for more provisions, and
learned for the first, time the change
in the mining laws providing that
powers eif aitorney must be lib*el with

from Dawson, in June, 1918, he Informed James of the- law. James Bent

attorney ihat the same- might be filed
when the recorder for the new mining
district opened his office.
Oali s met with an accident which
delayed his return to Chisana until
August, 1913,
Stakes the Claim.
In the meantime James, as attorney
in fact fm* Johnson, had performed
all the acts required by law In the
matter of making the discovery and
marking Uie' boundaries of the claim, l
On August 7 Ik* had filed notice ol
location and recorded power of attor-j
ney from Johnson to James.
The plaintiff arrived on the ground
August 20 and located the claim on
!he following day.
The decision of the* court, related to
a construction of the intent and
language' of the Wickersham law relating to recording of powers of attorney.
The sole question was, "Does the
act require the power of attorney to
be recorded prior lo the location of
claims '.'"

The famous Dumfriesian was a

Of all the literary celebrities of the
last century few were better known
to London drivers. For some years
the philosopher engaged a particular
man from tbe rank and insisted on
having no other. The "whip," how-

sage's custom in a singular manner.

negative the students informed bim
that he was one of tbe most famous
and eccentric authors of the day.
They then gave him a book with the
advice to have P open and to appear
to be reading whenever he approached the rank.
The cabman, without any suspicion
of a trick, acted on their advice and
kept a good look-out for the prophet, j

the pages of a pretentious volume
when he came along the cab rank.

apparent delight, "are 'e sure that 'i r i

the theft of articles from department!

investigation   by   Deputy     Prosecutor i
Thomas Corkery, who expressed the
belief  that  there  was    basis    for    a
charge of grand larceny.
Attorney   John   M.   Cannon,   representing  the  defendants,  said  he  had
i met them as witnesses several months
ago.     He   volunteered   the  statement
ihat  the  young  woman  had  been   in
trouble   before,  but  said   that  it   was
jseveral  years ago.     H<- si.iel  she  had

Roy Fordyce, city detective, told

Rank imposes obligations���
or���as the French put it���"Noblesse Oblige."
It is a very natural and right principle that those who
by their position in life command the respect of others
should deserve it and be worthy of maintaining their
position.    "Much is expected of those in high station."
But thia principle it not confined to persons of noble birth
���it has a hundred applications. It applies, for example,
to those manufacturers of
reputation and prestige who
make goods of high quality
and who advertise them constantly in the newspapers of
the land.
By their advertising they have
attained an eminence where
the very best in quality and
good service is expected  of
them. They have set a standard and their very business
life depends on the constant
maintenance of it.
So that when you buy advertised articles you rest assured
that you are getting the best
value that money can buy.
Well may you place your faith
in advertised goods. Well
may you give them prefer*
ence over articles which you
can only hope may prove
For the principle of "Noblesse Oblige" is
your guarantee of excellence in Advertised Goods.

Victoria. .Marcli 19.���In the police*
court yesterday the devious paths
taken by the Wily Chinee in ekeing
out a living were disclosed to an interested crowd. Frank Chew, a placid
Oriental, was the accused. He waa
charged with carrying on business
without securing the required license
or having taken out a transient trader's bond.
Instead of this, Chew bought em or-
elinary  license  for  $5,   Informing  the
city  treasurer that  he  was  taking a
I Pandora avenue store.   As a blind, he*
I .lad a 4x4 "hole-in-the-wall," which he*
I never   used.     He  then   proceeded   to*
' bring hay and feed of various descrip-
��� tions   from   Seattle,   Vancouver  and
J other adjacent cities, in the meantime
working up a list of local patrons, who
carried the goods from the wharf On
delivery.   Because of the lack of overhead expense,  Chew  was able tu un-
derprice all the local merchants, and .
consequently   did   a   flourishing   business.
J. Caldwell, of the Pacific Transfer
company, told of paying the Chinaman*
$510, while W. C, Kolam, foreman of
the Hudson's Bay stable iu Vancouver, stated that he had delivered hay,
straw and potatoes to Chew running
into $2,000.
Chew was found guilty, the ev-
I Ideuce being overfleming. Hhe was
fined $600, or two months in jail. As
he denied his ability to pay, it is probable that he will spend u period in
eluranee  vile.
j Seattle, March 19.���A clean-up of
! the city below Vesler way by the po-
I lice began lust night, und at midnight
j one hundred suspicious persons liiul
I been rounded up bv the police, with
\ orders that they mist leave town uu-
j less they can couvii.ee the police that
they are all right.
At S o'clock when the regular pol-
! ice were sent out lor their night pa-
.trol, they were told this had to In*.

Saloons were visited, also freight
