Wife of Vancouver Man Brutally Slain by Servant She
Censured���Body Burned
Vancouver, April 6:���The mystery of the disappearance of Mrs.
Charles Millard, wife of the C.
P. R. ticket agent, was solved by
the finding of her charred bones
and the confession of Kong, the
Chinese servant.
The chief feature of the story
was that at breakfast on Wednes1
day morning his mistress had
found fault with him. He struck
her with a chair. He says he
later took her body to- the basement, where he cut it up and
put it in the furnace, piece by
piece. He is said to have admitted that he hid the clothing
in order to convince Mr. Millard
that his wife had gone out in the
This morning the skull and
several large bones of legs and
arms were found in the bottom
of the flue under the drawing-
room grate. The boy is said to
have explained that when these
bones refused to burn to dust he
took them to the room above and
put them_down the flue-shute below the fireplace, where they
were found.
Inspector Jackson discovered,
secreted behind the chimney in
the basement, the rings and
watch stolen from Mrs. Millard
two weeks ago. At that time
Kong had blamed a man who
had been begging at the" house.
The greatest indignation has
been excited throughout the city.
Many employers of Chinese have
discharged the Orientals. Kong,
who had been employed by the
Millards for several years, is a
leader among the young Chinese
of Vancouver.
Predicts Big Business
That the G. T. P. will carry a
large number of tourists bound
to San Francisco for the Panama
exposition next year is the opinion of W. P. Hinton, -assistant
passenger traffic manager of the
road, who passed through on
Saturday, on his way to the temporary linking-up. With G. A.
McNicholl, commissioner of colonization and industries, Mr.
Hinton has just returned from an
extended tour of Canada and the
States, including California
points. He anticipates a great influx of visitors and investors in
the near future, having found
that this district is attracting a
great deal of attention on the
outside. Other officials in the
party were Albert Davidson, general agent; T. C. Chalmers,
agent at Prince Rupert; W. H.
Tobey, F. T. Lucas, and J. B. F.
Following the   promotion   of
Chief Constable  Owen,  of   the
provincial   police,   from   Prince
Rupert to the assistant inspector- j
ship of the force, it is understood
that Chief Gammon of Hazelton
is to be transferred to Prince
Rupert, his place at Hazelton
being ial<en by Chief Minty, of

Finance Minister
Reports a Surplus
Ottawa, April 6:���A surplus of
six and a half millions was announced by Hon. W. T. White,
finance minister, in delivering
the budget speech this afternoon.
He estimated the revenue for the
year at $163,000,000, or about five
millions less than than the previous year, the falling off being
in customs. Capital and special
outlays for the year, including
the sum of nineteen millions for
the C. N. R. and other railway
subsidies, Mr. White said, would
total fifty-seven millions, leaving
a debit balance of twenty and a
half millions from which, reducing a million and a half invested
in sinking fund, the increase in
the debt would be nineteen millions. The revenues for the
year had been sufficient to meet
all current and capital expenditure, including outlays upon railways, canals, harbor and public
buildings, and the debt had only
been increased by reason of the
unusual and abnormal expenditures upon railway subsidies.
C. M. Summers will go into
Omineca with a good outfit as
soon as the trail is fit to pack
over, which it is expected will be
early in May. He will prospect
the new holdings of his company.
Victoria, April 6:���Attorney-
General Bowser has been apprised by the Minister of Justice
that the sentence of death of J.
Mulvihill, who was to have been
executed, Tias been commuted to
life imprisonment. Mulvihill was
sentenced at the last assizes on
a charge of murder. The Court of
Appeals upheld the sentence. An
appeal was then taken to the
Supreme Court of Canada, the
application for a re-hearing being
refused. A full inquiry led to
the commutation of the sentence.
In Sensational Fight With Seven Bandits, Citizens of New
Hazelton Kill Two and Wound Others���Six Dead or
Captured of Band of Russian Robbers
London Fur Prices
C. V. Smith, the Hazelton fur
buyer, announces that at Lamp-
son's March sale in London,
prices of all furs except silver
and cross fox were lower than

decrease being as follows:
Muskrat32��, mink 40, marten
40, otter 30, fisher 30, lynx 40,
beaver 25, bear 25, wolf 10, wolverine 40, ermine 40.
Silver fox were 25 per cent
higher and cross fox 20 per cent.
The Indians who took G. W.
Otterson's party in a few weeks
ago to Slate Creek, have returned, bringing the news that all
the piping for the big elevator
plant that the Kildare Co. will
operate this summer has been
landed safely on the creek.
Bert Long has shipped his new
Cadillac car up from Prince
Rupert, where he spent the winter, and is expected to arrive on
tonight's train, to put the car into commission as soon as the
roads are in shape, Bert spent
last summer in Hazelton, and his
many friends will be glad to see
him back. He is a fast football
forward and will be welcomed on
the local line-up,
After an exciting battle, in
which many shots were fifed, a
gang of bandits which had robbed the Union Bank was effectually broken up by citizens of New
Hazelton on Tuesday morning,
two of the robbers being killed
outright and four wounded and
captured, only one, so far as
known, escaping.
The holdup men, who were not
masked, entered the bank at
10:15 a. m. and, pointing their
guns at Bishop, the teller, and
Fenton, the ledger-keeper, demanded the money from the safe.
Albert Gasfin, the postmaster,
was in the act of depositing the
postoffice funds, and the robbers
took the currency, amounting to
$35, from the deposit, leaving
the cheques and money orders.
The treasury compartment of
the safe, containing about $20,-
000, had not been opened, the
key being carried by Manager E.
B. Tatchell, and all the cash the
bandits could obtain was about
$1,100 of the teller's funds.
This they secured, after which
they began firing their guns in
the endeavor to force the teller
to open the cash compartment.
Mr. latchell, coming to the bank,
was warned off at the muzzle1 of
a rifle, and ran to give the alarm.
Immediately armed citizens rushed to the bank, and before thehold-
up men emerged they were covered
by many guns. On the appearance
of the robbers a battle ensued, in
which two of the criminals were
killed, and within a few minutes
the survivors were compelled to
retreat towards the woods. Three
wounded robbers and an un-
wounded man, believed to have
been one of the gang, were captured. The only member of
the gang to get away was the
one who carried the booty.
Manager Newick, of the drugstore, one of the first on the
scene, telephoned to the Hospital
and the Hazelton police station.
Drs. Wrinch and Stone rushed to
the scene and attended to the
wounded.      Shortly   afterwards
Chief Constable Gammon arrriv-
ed, and Government Agent Hoskins rode over post haste from
Hazelton. An organized search
for the escaped bandit was at
once begun, but up to today he
has eluded capture, although the
police are hot on the trail and
are confident he will soon be in
custody. Chief Owen, of Prince
Rupert, is assisting in the search.
On Tuesday evening Coroner
Hoskins opened an inquest on the
two dead men, adjourning the
inquiry until next Tuesday after
the jury had viewed the bodies.
Two of the wounded are in the
Hospital, one with both arms
badly lacerated by rifle bullets
and the other with a severe
wound in the hip. Another, less
seriously wounded, was given
attention al the Hospital and then
taken to the Hazelton lock-up,
where another, unhurt save for
a laceration caused by running
into a snag, is also in custody
In addition to the four Russians
under arrest, the police hold, on
suspicion, a Finlander named
Gustason, whose cabin appears
to have been made a rendezvous
for the bandits.
The police believe the robbers'
weapons were purchased in Vancouver, from which city two of
the men are known to have come,
The others are said to have come
from Prince Rupert. The bandits had filed their rifle bullets, to
render them more deadly, in the
same manner as had been done
by the men who held up the
Abbotsford bank a few weeks
ago. The men were well dressed,
wearing overalls above their ordinary clothing. The police expect to have all those in custody
completely identified within a
a day or two.
Constable Lavery, who is stationed at New Hazelton, had
been on duty nearly all the previous night, and was in bed when
the alarm was given. He reached the scene of battle as soon as
possible and took part in the pursuit.

Ottawa, April, 6:���The financial statement for the Dominion
fiscal year ending March 31,1914,
was issued on Saturday by the
finance department. The total
revenue for the year was $160,-
488,538, as compared with $165,-
528,137 for last year, a decrease
of five millions.
The expenditure on capital ac
count was $51,233,134 as compared with $28,758,456. The increase in capital expenditure on
public works was about nine
millions, but railway subsidies
jumped from a little, under five
millions in 1912-13 to nineteen
millions in 1913-14.
Despite the financial stringency
and business depression the
showing for the year is regarded
as exceedingly creditable.
The total expenditure on consolidated and capital account was
some one hundred and fifty-three
millions, leaving a balance on the
right side of the ledger of seven
million dollars.
The decrease in the revenue Is
entirely due to falling off in customs duties, which droppeH $112,-
533,528 in 1912-13 to $103,858,432
for the year which has just!
Excise revenue showed a slight ���
ncrease. The postal revenue
{Increased nearly a million dollars,
while there was also an increase
in the railways and canals and
public works departments of half
a million dollars. Miscellaneous
reven ue showed an increase of
two million dollars.
The national debt on March 31 i
stood at $314,019,288 as compared
with $297,588,095 on March 31,
1913, The increase is seventeen
and a half millions. This is
twenty-five million dollars less
than when the Borden government took office in 1911, when
| the net debt stood at $340,000,000.

Special Carrying Large Party
After Temporary Linking
The first through train from
Winnipeg to Prince Rupert passed
Hazelton on Wednesday, carry-
ins: a large party of railway officials and others.
The temporary linking-up of
the steel near Fort Fraser was
accomplished earlier than generally expected, thanks to the efforts of the track-laying officials.
On Tuesday the last mile of track
was laid, the pioneers of the two
divisions competing for the honor
of being first to the point of connection. It is reported that the
tracklayers from the east won
the race after an exciting contest. Moving pictures of the
competition were taken. A large
party of railway officials had
ccme from Winnipeg by special
train, and on completion of the
track they came through.
Morley Donaldson, vice-president and general manager of the
railway, headed the party, which
also included C. W. Cave, assistant general manager, A. B.
Smith, manager of G. T. P. telegraphs, H. A. Drury, engineer
of the board of railway commissioners, and a number of other
officials and press represen tati ves.
Amoving picture operator and
a number of press photographers were with the party.
Asquith's Majority Reduced
London, April 7:���By a majority of 80 the amendment to reject
the home rule bill was defeated
without a division, and the bill
for the third time was given its
second reading. The announcement of the figures evoked louder cheers from the opposition
than from the ministerialists,
the opposition interpreting it as
gratifying proof of the dwindling of the government majority.
The diminution was accounted
for to some extent by the abstention from voting of the O'Brien-
ites. The speeches were generally of a more conciliatory tone
than those at the earlier passage.
John Redmond held out the
olive branch to Ulster, but insisted that it was impossible to
agree to permanent exclusion of
Ulster, or abandon the principle
of an Irish nation.
London, April 6:- - It is generally recognized that Sir Edward
Grey's speech in the house of
commons has lifted the Irish
question to a higher and calmer
plane. It was a firm but conciliatory plan to resume negotiations
on a basis of establishing a federal system within six years.
There is little doubt the opposition
would adopt the plan if the time
limit is withdrawn.

mistake of attempting the deed in broad daylight, with the result
that they foil ml themselves pitted against a band of determined
citizens, who opposed armed force to the lawless actions of the
criminals. There was no time for organization as the law would
require, and the men who faced the bandits were justified in their
action. That nearly all the men implicated were killed or captured
without even the wounding of any of the citizens is as remarkable,
it is known that he made the
first few miles of his escape on
troop trains, which he abandoned
when he came to the first place
where the rails had been removed.
This circumstance is conveyed in
brief reports that he escaped with

It is to be expected that the breaking up of this gang will have the
effect of deterring others from attempts at similar exploits, which
have been all too common recently in various parts of the West.
Improper Land Staking
T,he practice of parties desir-
ro is of obtaining large tracts of
government land who evade the
clause which limits one section
to one purchaser, by the expedi-
e icy of putting the applications
through under powers of attor-
n \v from persons willing to allow
tiieir names to be be used, has
been condemned by Mr. Justice
Macdonald, of the supreme court,
in an action at Victoria last week.
His lordship stigmatised the
method as a fraud upon the Land
Act and refused to assist Mr.
Robert W. Clark to recover from
George M. Swan a sum of money
paid for staking land, where the
applications had been made in
the names of outsiders. Clark
had alleged that lands in the
Naas Valley which Swan had
staked for him, and which Clark
subsequently sold to Hume Cio-
nyn, of London, Ont, were misrepresented by Swan.
Mr. J. R. Green appeared for
the plaintiff and Mr. A. D. Mac-
farlane for the defendant. Mr.
Macfarlane raised as a defence
that the powers of attorney used
were illegal.
In his judgment, Mr. Justice
Macdonald says: "Defendant
seeks to escape liability on the
ground that the whole transaction in which the parties were engaged was contrary to public
policy as being an evasion of the
Land Act, and thus illegal. It is
quite apparent that the persons
whose names were used by the
defendant in staking the land
were not really intending purchasers from the government;
they were simply utilized for the
purpose of enabling the plaintiff
to secure a number of sections
of land contrary lo the provisions
of the act, which provides that
only one section can be purchased
at. one time. This practice of
using names for staking has been
too prevalent in this province
and was recently considered by
the supreme court of Canada in
the case of Brownlee vs. Mcintosh, lhe facts are similar to
those disclosed in this action, and
Duff, J., in referring to them,
"It is perfectly obvious that the
scheme entered upon and successfully carried out by Mcintosh
and Burnham through the agency of the plaintiff was a fraud
upon the Land Act."
Further on Mr. .lustice Macdonald quotes from Mr. Justice
Duff's decision as follows:
A dispatch from an Italian army
officer with the rebel   artillery
would he an agreement which  it.    "Dead  horses and  dead men

A Heartless Joke
Chicago, April 2:���A cruel first
of April joke perpetrated by some
person unknown to the police
caused a mob of more than 500
unemployed men to congregate
in a cold rain in front of the Soo
Line freight terminal. Before
the men could be made to understand that there was no basis for
the report that the road wanted
hundreds of workers, the mob
surged against the steel gates,
breaking the locks and poured
into the yards, shouting "We
want work, Give us the jobs."
It took the police reserves nearly
an hour to clear the men out of
the yards.

Hon. G. P. Graham, the house
rejected the vote by 105 to67.

findings of the report were substantially correct.

J M" matter not generally
fmJ-% known or fully appreciated with regard to commercial printing is the fact that
Style, display (by which is
meant typographical arrangement) and type-faces are subject to change, as in the case
of clothing and-other fashions.
^ Modern printing shows a
marked tendency towards the
neat and plain in display with a
liberal use of margin, as opposed to the old-slyle methods of
coarse, overcrowded and over-
ornamental composition. Not
every printer can give you the
better class of work. It is,
therefore, to your interest to see
that your printing is done at
the mo�� fully equipped commercial printing plant in the
Northern Interior, carrying a
large and high-grade slock of
stationery, and employing workmen of experience and ability.
