Lee Chung, one of the three mur-
derers condemned to hang on Friday,
yesterday evening confessed to having
killed Yung Ah Hing, his aged partner
in a pig raising business at South
Vancouver about four months ago. All
through his trial, and during the
period of his incarceration in the provincial jail, Le.. Chung had stoutly
maintained his innocence, but the
near approach of certain death indue I hini to change hi.--, mind and admit his guilt. He made a voluntary
confession to Chief Constable Camp-
hell of Vancouver, and David Lew, a
Chinese lawyer of Vancouver, who
came to Bee (he condemned man at the
request of Sheriff Armstrong in the
hope that he would make a statement
before the day of execution arrived.
As translated by Mr. Lew, Chung's
statement is substantially a., follows:
"Yung Ah liing aud 1 were partners
in a big raising business in South Vancouver. The old man accused nie of
having slaughtered som.- pigs and disposed of the carcases without his
knowledge. I denied having done this,
but Hing kept on na_;giug me all day
about it. He annoyed me very much.
In the afternoon 1 went io a shingle
ui.ll close by to buy some shingles,
taking a butcher knife with me to cui
some hrush ou ihe way. On the way
back the old man m. i me und again
commenced reproaching me, He harped on the Bubject a long time, and
finally i lost my temper aud attacked
him with the knife, cutting his throat.
He died shortly after. 1 did the deed
in the heat of passion and am now-
sorry, but it is too late. The killing
was noi premeditated. 1 have a wife
and daughter six years old in China,

four murderers looted the residence* Of
a rancher, Kelly hy name.' The latter
remonstrated with the robbers, and
was murdered in cold blood for his
temerity. Shortly after the four fugitives held up T. J. Trapp, now of this
city .and then a cattle rancher, relieved bim of his arms and iwnitiuni
ttlon, helped themselves to food, and
announced iheir Intention of "letting
daylight, into Bim." Through the intercession of one of the brothers McLean, however, this part of the program was omitted.

\s these works of art are necessarily very expensive we cannot be
ted to give them .away indiscriminately;   we  therefore    propose
gi ing any one of them to every purchaser of goods to the value of

im chas.- lose this opportunity of becoming possessed of on.- of these
spec mens of old country high art.
As a. further inducement to purchasing good boots and shoes at
thia time, we have put on a big reduction in price sale in all lines of
boots, sh ies and slippers, suitable for the present season.
See our slipper show for Christmas presents; the quality is away

If you contemplate buying a
5-Acre
Be sure you secure one near town
:       :     ON THE TRAM LINE     :       :
Our subdivision is positively the only one on the
market supplying either or both these conditions,
and when you consider it is an indisputable fact
that more money has been made by purchasing
land near growing centres of population than by
all other schemes combined, you will readily understand the wisdom of those who have already in-
*
vested with us.
It stands to reason that land so situated is bound
to increase in value much mere rapidly than if
miles away from town or electric tram. The present low prices will not hold good much longer.
We are opening all roads in our subdivision, so
that every lot will front on a good road.
The soil is just the right sort for fruit culture,
and the clearing so light that the wood and shingle bolts will sell for enough to about pay for it.
The price we are asking per acre for our splendid South Westminster homesites is only $75.00 to
$100.00, and we have a number of choice blocks
left to be sold at these ridiculously low figures,
which will soon be raised.
If you do not want one of them yourself, just
make a present of one to each of your children (it
would be the very best kind of life insurance) and
even if you do not plant the land out in fruit, it
will almost certainly add to its present value fully
100 per cent, each year for the next ten years,
making it worth in that time $1,000.00 per acre,
a very reasonable expectation. We can give you
a deed at once.

EVIL OF THE "SAW OFF."
One of the most flagrant evils In
Bhe politics of Canada Is the protection given to all forms of electoral
crime by the "saw-off" system of
dealing wiih alleged offences. A week
ago a great deal was *ieard, on both
sides, about bribery and corruption iu
the recent Dominion elections. Prima
facie evidence of the most damaging
character, adequate to the unseating
and disqualifying of Conservative
members, was known to be in the possession of Liberals. Similar evidence
against Liberals was claimed hy Con-
Bervatives, Representatives of both
party organizations met on the last
day allowed for the filing of petitions,
and the "saw-off" principle was applied to almost the entire list. The
petitions   were   not   filed.    The    evi-

ing sore is allowed to remain in   the J
body politic.   Neither   party   gains in Get the Habit
the game,  and  both parties  suffer b> j
the concealment.
This whole  business is  wrong and;
disgusting.    A vona lido petition may

be.found   ou  investigation   to be not
well sustained, and it may justly   be
allowed to drop^ but no "saw-off" with
another petition should    be    allowed.
This degradation of the judicial machinery tends to turn the law into   a
farce and to make politics attractive
only to adventurers.
There is  no hope for improvement i signs, three far 25c.
;_o long as the "saw-off" game is played.   If any man was elected by means
of  general bribery  or corruption  his
election   should  have   been   protested
by those who had adequate evidence,
If this rule would involve any Liberals,
so much the worse for them, but their
unseating would be so much the better for the Liberal party and for the
country. The evil of which the "saw-
off" Is a manifestation, should be the
subject of serious consideration, and
wine effective means should be taken ""^ buy
for meeting it. The evil afflicts both j same
Arties, and Its cure would make for
political molality iti all parts of Canada,

V    th.   1    --.-ary prosecuting officer
for the detection and punishment   of
such crime      Bribery Is made a crime,
.1- counterfeiting is made a crime, and
of the two the injury wrought by elee-
toral crime is by far the more serious.
Why  .-hould  there not  be  an  officer,
clothed by Parliament with the needed I
authority   and   power   to  ferret every i
reported case of bribery and to secure!
the  punishment   of the   criminals?���

but ultimately he seconded Mr. Towns-

any recommendation on the Bul je-ct.
