Railroader Known as Frank Hill Shot Dead by Special
Constable Who Took Victim for One of Bank Robbers
���Verdict of Culpable Homicide
The mistaken zeal of a special
constable was responsible for the
dsathof Frank Walimacki, known
as Frank Hill, a demented Finn
who had been working on construction. After a pursuit lasting
for several hours, Hill was shot
and killed on Saturday morning,
near Skeena Crossing. The inquest, which was held at Hazelton, concluded at 2 a.m. Wednesday. The evidence showed that
deceased, who had been missing
for a week, and was supposed to
be demented, was followed by
Magnus Edgar, a half-breed
special constable, and two Indians, on the supposition that he
was one of the New Hazelton
bank robbers, lhe fugitive, continuing his flight when called
upon to stop, was fired upon by
Edgar and was struck by two
bullets, death resulting almost
immediately. A verdict of culpable homicide was returned.
The inquest was conducted by
Government Agent Hoskins, acting in the capacity of coroner.
The jury included E. H. Hicks
Beach, foreman, R. S. Sargent,
W. J. McAfee, J. Willett, W. F.
Brewer and A. Leverett.

Speaking to a Liverpool audience, Dr. Vaughan Cornish, F. R.
G. S., drew attention to the fact that the Panama Canal "will put
the immense length of the Pacific Coast of the two Americas into
sen communication with the manufacturing districts of the United
Suites and Europe."     He then went on to say:
"The breadth of lhe Pacific Ocean in the Tropics is so great
that even from American ports there is no shortening of distance
t) tropical Asia. It may perhaps not be generally realized that to
s'oam from Panama to Colombo across the Pacific and through the
Straits of Malacca is a longer voyage than that from the North to
the South Pole. The Panama Canal concerns the British Empire
in more ways than one. Obviously, as Great Britain is the largest
sea-carrier, we ought to gain by an undertaking which will increase
tie total amount of sea transport, and also its relative efficiency as
compared to land transport. We shall soon see British shipping
companies establishing round the world routes entirely north of the
Equator, a thing never before possible."
The part of the address which will have the most interest for
our readers is that in which Dr. Cornish says:
"One of the greatest boons conferred by the Canal on the Empire will be the bringing of British Columbia 6000 miles nearer by
sen to Great Britain, an amount equal to the whole distance which
separates London from Cape Town. This reduction will stimulate
the trade of British Columbia, and facilitate the settlement and
peopling of that great and splendid country ���for there is no fairer
or more desirable land among those which owe allegience to King
George."
