LILLOOET,   B. ft, FRIDAY, JULY 4, 1913.
To Hang on Sept. 12 for
Murder of Kindness.
Billy Vedam Says He Gave False Evidence at Vernon Trial.
In the assize court at New Westminster on Saturday afternoon,
Paul Spintlum was found guilty
of the murder of constable Kindness at Clinton in May, 1912, and
sentenced to death.
The Court-"Paul Spintlum,
have you anything to say why the
sentence of the court should not
be passed upon you?"
Prisoner remained silent and,
the question being repeated, he
smiled, shook his head and answered "No."
"The sentence of the court is
that you be taken to the prison
from whence you came, and there
on Friday, 12th September next,
you be hanged by the neck until
you are dead."
Spintlum was immediately taken
below, and the court was adjourned until Wednesday next at 11 a.
m., when the case of Moses Paul,
charged as an accessory after the
fact of Spintlum's crime, will
probably be brought up and dealt
Addressing the jury on behalf
of the prisoner, Mr. Stuart Henderson dissected the testimony of
the crown witnesses carefully,
and endeavored to show they
were unreliable. If they threw
out Boyd's evidence the whole
fabric of the prosecution fell to
the ground. The trackers' evidence showed that the man crawled away, turned round and ran
without showing his face. Boyd
and others said he rose from the
log. Cultus Jack's credibility
was impugned and the police reflected upon for employing him
and a dark hint as to Jack faking
a case. The whole case for the
crown fell, repeated counsel, without Boyd, as his lordship would
no doubt direct them.
The Court—I am not going to
tell them anything of the kind.
Do not anticipate it.
Mr. Henderson, continuing,
said that at any rate, the only
direct evidence was that of Boyd
and he submitted they could not
convict Spintlum on his evidence.
None of the boot tracks had been
found on the other side of James'
Counsel then dwelt upon the
proclamation putting a price
upon the heads of Spintlum and
Moses Paul and the effect it had
upon the tracking parties, imbuing them with the preconceived
idea that the men they were tracking were Spintlum and Moses
"One of the outstanding features of this case," said Judge
Morrison, reviewing the evidence

After Seeing Seven Men Drown, Pilot
Quits Dangerous Task.
1 'Too dangerous for me, "is the
verdict of J. D. Cowart, one of
the pilots of the Grand Canyon
above Fort George, who came to
town after quitting the pilot business for good. Cowart piloted
the first scow that went through
the Grand Canyon thi3 season,
and has been stationed there
ever since, bringing loaded scows
through. Before leaving the
canyon he saw six scows lost at
that point this season. Saturday
of last week five more were lost
with seven men. In addition to
this twenty scows were lost this
season to date in Goat Rapids farther up the Fraser.
Earlier in the season when the
water was low there was little
danger in scow-running, but since
the water has risen the work is
fraught with terrible risk.
The Grand Canyon is in reality
a pair of canyons, the upper canyon being usually considered the
real menace. Owing to the very
high water the lower canyon,
which contains a large whirlpool,
is now the sticking point, and it
is here that the more recent accidents have occurred.
Dan Ashey, foreman for Brown
& Martin, who have a sub-contract under A. E. Griffin & Co.,
tells the story of the disaster last
Saturday, which occurred in the
lower canyon. Ashey, who was
accompanied by William Brown,
of the contracting firm, and an
engineer, brought down a flotilla
of eleven scows and 150 men.
Five scows and seven men were
lost in the canyon.
"All the scows that were lost
went the same way," says Ashey.
"When they struck the big whirlpool they spun around for a few
minutes, gradually sinking lower
and lower in the water, and finally went down. Most of the
men jumped and by some means
managed to get out beyond the
whirl and make for shore, but
seven were not so fortunate. The
men who were lost were never
seen again after they went down,
and we saw no more of the scows
Twenty-four Dominion Day Celebrants
Appear in Court Wednesday.
A heavy docket was heard in
police court Wednesday, twenty-
four cases being called. Most of
the charges arose out of a too-
free celebration of Dominion Day
and were dismissed with five dollar fines. For supplying liquor
to Indians a Swede was fined $50
and costs. For vagrancy, one
Alice Brown was sent to Kamloops for six months. Wednesday's appearance was Alice's
third visit to police court within
a week. On Monday she was
allowed freedom on a suspended
sentence of six months, and told
to leave town. Failing to comply with the order, Alice will be
the guest of the government for
the next half year.
Breakfasts in Lillooet and
Sups at Coronation.
North Fork Road to be Started in
Two Months.
Breakfast in Lillooet and supper
at the Coronation mines. Such
was the experience of J. K. More,
district road superintendent, J.S.
Bell, local road foreman, and A.
G. Hillier, last week. The party
motored to the mine, using one of
the government machines, for
the purpose of inspecting the road
work now being carried on
through the Bridge river district.
The party found the existing
roads and bridges in good shape,
and Mr. More expressed himself
well satisfied with the progress
of the extension of the road to
the Pioneer.
Asked when the construction
of the North Fork road was to be
commenced, for which an appropriation of $10,000 has been made,
Mr. More stated that a start
would be made on the work within two months. A gang is also
starting to clear the McGillivray
creek trail, but the superintendent was unable to say when construction of the long-desired
wagon road would be put under
"At present no money has been
appropriated for the work. The
whole question will have to be
thoroughly investigated before
any promises can be made,"said
At the Coronation the party
found the stamp mill doing splendidly and supt. Copp enthusiastic
regarding the showing which is
being made. Like all other visitors to the mine, Mr. More was
much impressed with the high
grade of ore on the dump.
Mr. More left for Ashcroft on
Saturday. He will, next week,
accompany government auditor
A. Hood to Fort George.
During the past three weeks
Mr. More has traveled over 1400
miles on inspection trips. His
district covers a large area, extending from 127 mile post on the
Cariboo road, to Pemberton Meadows.
"One has to keep going these
days. The country is settling up
fast, and everybody is asking for
roads," said he.
Completion of the sidewalk
along the short length in front of
the Victoria Hotel and adjacent
buildings would be a convenience
especially to ladies, who are obliged to make use of the hotel
verandah or walk in the roadway.

Indians Ask for Early Sitting  in
Lillooet of Commission.
The following communication
has been addressed to the Indian
commission by local Indian chiefs:
To the Honorable the members
of the Indian commission.
We, the undersigned chiefs of
Indian tribes in the vicinity of
Lillooet district, humbly request
that your honorable body will
next hold a sitting in Lillooet.
Several matters of dispute between Indians and white settlers,
principally pertaining to the set
tlement of land, require adjustment.
At present the undersigned
chiefs, together with most members of several tribes, are assembled in the vicinity of Lillooet,
but will be widely scattered after
this month. On the coast, however, we humbly suggest the time
to be inopportune for sittings
owing to the fact that Indians
are engaged in fishing.
Should you be able to comply
with this request you will confer
a favor by notifying James Retasket, Lillooet, who will see
that the Indians are gathered in
readiness for your arrival.

A Charge of Forgery.
Charged before magistrate Saul
on Saturday, with forgery, Oscar
R. Wiley was committed for trial.
As an accessory, Tony Lucich was
According to the facts as related in evidence, Wiley, on April
5 last, prepared a statement of
rock work, purported to ha^e
been done by M. Simunonich, at
station 59, Seaton lake. This
statement was presented at P.
Welch's headquarters office by
Tony Lucich, who received a
cheque for the value of work
supposed to have been done, viz:
$129. It was afterwards discovered that the document was false,
that no such work had been done,
and that no person of the name
of Simunonich was working at
station 59. The history of the
fraud was related in court by one
of the accused to the effect that
on April 5 Wiley endeavored to
borrow $100. Not succeeding,
he furnished Lucich with a statement of work, which the latter
took to headquarters, securing a
cheque for $129. This cheque
was cashed at the Victoria Hotel, •
and Lucich returned to camp
with the money. Wiley took $90
and handed Lucich the balance
as his share of the plunder.
E. C. Kaufman, office manager
at headquarters, testified to receipt of statement and issue of
cheque. He stated that the document was discovered to be fraudulent when Burns, Jordan &

JULY 4, 1913.
By mutual arrangement a
Commission has been appointed by the Dominion and
Provincial Governments to
enquire into, and, if possible,
settle the long-standing question of Indian rights throughout the Dominion. The action
of this Commission principally covers the question of
lands held by the Indians,
and the uses to which these
lands are being put. Where
such reserves are not being
utilized, or where the area
held is in excess of the requirements of the Indians,
the Commission has power to
withdraw the reserve and
make the land available for
legitimate settlement.
At a recent sitting at Duncan's, Vancouver Island, one
of the commissioners expressed the opinion that one hundred acres of agricultural
land was sufficient to support
an Indian in first-class style,
provided he properly cultivated it. This remark is reasonable. Many men throughout the province are making
good livings for themselves
and families on a smaller area
than this.
Many towns and cities in
B. C. are being retarded in
development by reason of the
fact that valuable lands within their bounds are held by
Indians, and permitted to lie
undeveloped — squalid eyesores amid prosperous and
often palatial surroundings.
A truth hits the harder
when the force of its blow is
felt at home. No better illustration could be found than
in our own town of Lillooet.
Here everything is favorable
to the development of a rich
agricultural and fruit-growing centre. Climate, soil,
irrigation, transportation —
all are available—but on
every side large areas of the
best land are held by a few
Indians as barren wilderness.
Some of these reserves are
held by only from one to a
dozen natives, while on but
few is the number large.
Without desiring to deprive the Indian of his hereditary rights, in so far as
he is able and willing to make
such use of them as to be
profitable to himself and the
community, we would suggest that much good might
result from a general investigation by the Commission of
the situation in Lillooet.
The legitimate settlement
of more land adjacent to the
town would do much to ensure its stability and prosperous future. It would provide
opportunities for extension,
would attract capital and
men, and focus the attention
of the outside world upon the
district, placing the town in
the forefront of inland agricultural centres.
A petition of settlers and
citizens, pointing out to the
Commission the disadvantages of the present situation
and asking for a sitting in
this district, would be oppor-
tune,and probably productive
of much practical benefit.
The Kicker.
Every man has a right to
take a paper, or stop it for
any reason at all. But at the
same time there is a certain
responsibility attached to all
actions, even so trivial as.
stopping a paper because the
editor says something one
doesn't agree with. There
is a complaint that editors
lack fearlessness and honesty
and that newspapers are too
generally mere partisan organs that disregard the
claims of truth and justice
when political interests are
at stake. There is too much
truth in the charge! But let
us ask how it is possible for
a fearless, honest, outspoken
journal to live if every man
is to cry out "stop my paper"
whenever he reads something
that does not accord with his
views? The men who insist
that the paper they read
shall never say anything contrary to their views are the
ones who are, in a measure,
responsible for the craven
cowardliness and the weathercock propen ities of modern journalism. In a community composed entirely of
these "stop my paper" people
true independent journalism
would be an impossibility.
When you are convinced that
a paper is dishonest and deceitful, stop it. When convinced that it is unclean, stop
it. When it lacks enterprise
and fails to give you news,
stop it.    But don't stop a
Kaper that you believe to "be
onest, enterprising, clean
and courageous, simply because the editor has written
his own sincere views instead
of yours or some other persons; for if you do, you are
putting a premium on insincere journalism and serving
notice on an editor that the
way to succeed is to write
what he thinks will please
his readers instead of what
he thinks is honestly the truth

Mrs. Elizabeth DeBeck, a resident of New Westminster, celebrated the 99th anniversary of
her birth last week. Herchildrer,
grandchildren and greatgrandchildren, as well as other near
kin, gathered at the home of
Capt. C. H. DeBeck, 135 Columbia street, Sapperton, to properly
celebrate the occasion. Mrs. De-
Beck was born in New Brunswick
and 54 years ago came to the Pacific Coast with her family by
way of the Isthmus of Panama.
She has had the unusual experience of having lived under six
British sovereigns.
Asked for advice as to how to
live a long time, Mrs. DeBeck
advised being honest work hard
and don't worry. Mrs. DeBeck
follows her own advice regarding
work, and even now is engaged
on some fine lace in which No.

threads her own needle, too.
Her husband was killed forty-
five years ago by a falling tree.
She had twelve children, some of
whom are now dead. In all,
there are eighty-four descendants
now living.

Dice Were Loaded at Clinton Assizes,
Says Rev. Leonard Dawson.
Writing to the Vancouver Sun,
Revd. Leonard Dawson, principal of the Indian Industrial
School at Lytton, complains bitterly of the Clinton decision in
the Rex. vs. Loring case. After
reciting the history of the ease,
Mr. Dawson writes:
"At Clinton, when the grand
jury, which was a strong one and
contained men of repute, and
many of them cattlemen, who
easily grasped the seriousness of
the situation, brought in a 'true
bill,' the judge tried to quash
the case, but he found that the
law too strong for him. When the
case came on, Mr. Fitzgerald's
lawyer was unfortunately detained at Vernon assizes. The result
was a travesty of justice.
"First—Judge Gregory arranged for convenience of defendant's
counsel that the case should not
come up till the following Monday, but said he would not wait
five minutes for Mr. Maclntyre,
Mr. Fitzgerald's counsel.
"Second—Irrelevant evidence
was properly admitted, and then
Mr. Fitzgerald not allowed to
answer to it
"Third-Evidence given by the
defendant was in fiat contradiction of what he said on oath at
the previous courts.
"Fourth-The judge had a private conversation with defendant
counsel in open court without
prosecuting counsel being also
' 'Fifth—In spite of Judge Murphy's decision that there was no
evidence of malice Judge Gregory
said the case was one of vindic-
tiveness and maliciousness.
"Sixth-The judge gave vindictive and extravagant costs
against Mr. Fitzgerald, that is
against a missionary society
which is using its funds to benefit the Indians in British Columbia and Canada.
"Now the question naturally
arises: Are we, who own cattle,
to have them stolen with impunity without any help and protection from the crown or police, and
be told by a judge that we are
vindictive and malicious because
we try to get protection, which
every citizen of the crown is entitled to? Altogether thirty-four
cattle have been stolen in this
neighborhood from Indians and
whites, and not a conviction has
taken place.
"If ever there was a case of
conspiracy and loaded dice it is
in this case."

June 27,1918. THE   PROSPECTOR
Thrilling Story of Polar Adventure Told by
Members of Antarctic Expedition.
The first account has reached
this country of the experiences
of Mr. Frank Wild and seven
Companions, all under thirty years
of age, who, forming the second
base of Dr. Mawson's antarctic
expedition, with characteristic
pluck elected to be landed on a
moving antarctic glacier rather
than return to Australia. A year
later they were rescued with
great difficulty, in circumstances
already narrated by Capt. Davis
of the Aurora. The chief result
of their exploration was the discovery of a great tract of land,
with 350 miles of coastline, probably extending to the Pole itself,
which' has been named Queen
Mary's Land."
Speaking to Reuter's representative of his experiences, Mr.
Wild said:
"We left Mawson at hi" base
in Adelie Land on January 19 of
last year with orders to form a
second base on Sabrina Land or
Knox Land. The former we soon
ascertained did not exist, and impenetrable pack prevented us
from getting within sixty miles
of Knox Land, with the result
that instead of two miles we
cruised for 1300 miles and still
found no chance of landing. On
February 11 we sighted a glacier
which had probably been mistaken by Wilkes for Termination
Land, and on the 15th found a
landing. This being Shackleton's
birthday, we named it Shackle-
ton's Glacier. It looked an impossible spot. It was clearly a
moving glacier, and its terrible"
cliffs a hundred feet high were
badly broken and crevassed.
"I fully realized the possibility
of it breaking away, but thought
the risk worth taking. However,
I asked all my people separately
if they were willing to land, and
trusting in my judgment they
cheerfully consented. We had
thought of landing on a fast floe
five or six years old, which we
had seen some days previously,
but fortunately did not, or we
should have all been lost. Landing our hut, stores, etc., and
hoisting them up this dangerous
cliff was a long and difficult business, and our next care was to
move them from the broken edjre
to a spot 460 yards yards distant,
where we erected our hut.
"During these operations the
whole force worked 14 hours a
day, and six days after the Aurora had departed we were able
to leave our tents and occupy the
hut. During this period the temperature averaged 40 degrees,
dropping as low as minus 15 Fah.
We covered 185 miles in dragging
stores between the glacier edge
and the hut The next morning
we next made preparations for
sledging, but were detained until
the middle of March by blizzards
and snow drifts fifteen feet in
depth. In the meantime all the
sea ice blew away, leaving us
with a perpendicular glacier edge
up which it was impossible for
penguins or seals to reach, and
for five months we had to depend
entirely on tinned foods.
"We soon found it impossible
to go on, and turned back for
home. Carrying only fifty pounds
per man the going was so hard
that we oply covered a mile and
a quarter in eight hours, down
hill, and sinking three feet in
snow. When two miles from our
hut another blizzard held us up,
one tent collapsed, and its three
occupants were unable to move
or get food for 36 hours.
"The winter was very bad, with
constant gales, but we managed
to keep well and cheerful. We
had a regular routine, meals at
stated hours, and we amused ourselves with hockey, football, and
skiing in fine weather, and chess,
draughts and cards when unable
to venture out. Every Sunday I
conducted divine service in the
morning, and we did nothing except essential camp work. In
August we again made preparations for sledging,, one party of
three going eastward and another
to the west. The latter surveyed
all the coast line to the point
reached by the German expedition of 1902. The western party
did most of its traveling on land
at an altitude of two or three
thousand feet.
"On one trip it did 510 miles
at that altitude. The party discovered the largest emperor penguin rookery ever recorded. This
was on an island 95 miles west of
our glacier hut, and here were
congregated some seven thousand
young emperor birds in addition
to innumerable ordinary penguins. The eastern party surveyed as far as 101 east longitude,
and went inland for 50 miles,
reaching an altitude af 4500 feet.
Blizzards were exceptionally severe; one exceptionally bad one
split a tent and caused the others
to collapse.
We were thus without shelter
in a hundred miles an hour wind.
For five days we lay in a covered
hole twelve feet by six feet by
three feet. At intervals awful
avalanches crashed down from a
600 foot cliff four hundred yards
from us, while giant boulders of
ice, weighing twenty tons, came
to within a hundred yards of our
hole, which three months later
was itself engulfed.
"The ice we met with on the
expedition was by far the worst
I have ever seen. On our glacier
this was partly the result of collisions between more quickly
moving masses and our own.
These collisions has torn crevasses more than 300 feet wide and
400 feet deep, and the impact had
thrown up ice 250 feet to 300 feet
Asked for his worst experience,
Mr. Wild said: "On the whole we
enjoyed good health, and there
were no casualties. Falling down
crevasses were more or less common, and we all got graced or
bruised, while on one occasion
Watson was down a crevasse for
twenty minutes before we hauled
him out. Our worst experience
was in October, when the party
was laid up for seventeen days in
a blizzard, the longest on record.

for the jury, "is the difficulty of
identification. You must apply
your reasonable common sense to
the question before coming to a
conclusion. Begin with the evidence of Truron, who distinctly
stated he recognized the accused.
Then aa to Boyd, can you, consistent with your duty, disbelieve
Boyd? Can you say Boyd has
perjured himself T Are you satisfied aa to his statement at the
coroner's inquest from the evidence of an ordinary plain rancher that he waa terrorized by
the misdeeds of certain people
there and he has been living
there for years, that he was jus
tified in certain consequences. He
knew the character of some of
his neighbors. He may have
been wrong in his surmise aa to
whether certain things would
happen to justify him in not telling anything more. It may be
that he was too frightened or too
nervous to voluntarily state that
he saw this man, that he did not
say so, having regard to what
had recently occurred, that he
thought it the better part of
valor to be careful and adopt
some other means. Boyd's evidence was clear and explicit He
has already sworn to it twice. If
there is any reason to doubt him
there is a remedy for perjury.
"If you believe Boyd, where
does it land the accused? Do you
suppose Boyd would do such a
thing aa would lead to the execution of a human being? But
Boyd does not stand alone—take
the evidence of Truron. Is there
the slightest doubt or hesitation
aa to the truth of his evidence?
You might doubt my powers of
observation if I were to describe
the horses, but to a man whose
business and occupation is to deal
with horses, that he waa looking
for horses atthe time, and he has
to be careful of the peril of taking another man's horse.
These two men were fugitives
from justice, accustomed to this
roaming life, and it would be very
extraordinary if they did not
know they were followed. You
must not look for absolute certainty. Your responsibility is to
determine upon the facts aa you
heard them.
A sensational feature of the
trial waa the arrest of Billy
Vedam. He admitted that the
evidence given by him at the
Vernon assises waa pure fabrication.     ;    ■
Alex. McLeod waa a visitor at
the Prospector office during the
week. Alex, came in from the
Pemberton to share in the fun.
Canada's forty-seventh birthday aa a confederated Dominion
was celebrated in Lillooet this
week with becoming honors and
general festivity. For three days
the town waa given over to a riot
of general pleasure and fun, in
which white and Indian alike
The proceedings opened on
Tuesday with a parade of school
children, led by the martial swirl
of the bagpipes. Having paraded
the town, children and citizens
gathered around the flagstaff,'
where Mr. James S. Bell delivered the following appropriate address:
My Dear Boys and Girls, Ladies
and Gbntlbmbn:—We are assembled
together today to celebrate in as worthy
a manner aa we can, Canada's National
Birthday. Forty-six years ago our Dominion took its place in the world'*
history aa the first self-governing eon-
federation within the British Empire.
Today Canada enters upon the forty-
seventh year of its existence. Our
country has a great destiny as the leading overseas nation of the empire. Fot
the fulfillment of that destiny we Canadians must be true to the high example
of the men who, in the making of Canada, laid the foundation of this great
countiy we are now building up.
The early builders of Canada are dairy
dropping from among us. The great
trust now descends into new hands. It
Is our duty to hold intact, by land and
sea, all that our empire-builders have
left us. As we are living in a time of
peace, our first duty is the development
of this grand country of ours. We
must put our shoulders to the wheel
and try to develop the resources of our
land, call forth its power, build up its
industries and promote all its great interests. Our object must be the welfare
of our country, our whole country, and
nothing but our country, and by the
bleating of God Canada will become a
vast and splendid monument of progress
on which all nations gaae with wonder
and admiration.
Among the features of the
celebration the drilling contest
occupied a leading place and
created considerable excitement
Owing to the hard nature of the
rock selected the depth drilled in
the ten minutes available waa
not great The contest resolved
itself into a competition of miners vs. railroad men, in Which
the former easily secured the
laurels. The prize of $160 went
to a* team from the Coronation
mines, consisting of Messrs. J.E.
Crossett and Alexander, who
drilled 181-8 inches. McLeod k
Ackers took second money, $60,
with 111-4 inches.
