JOBBERS RUN DOWN
Banditti   Nabbed Near Quilchena, Nicola, Now itw<s
oC/J
m
Every Road, Trail and Pass Bristled
with Men Tinder Arms, Made
Escape Improbable.
The sequel to the train robbery of last
week at Ducks may be told in a few sentences and without any pretence of sensationalism. More than usual interest
for citizens of Princeton attaches to the
robbery from the fact that at least two
of the suspected robbers captured are
known to nearly everybody in this section. The third man arrested has not
'been fully identified, but he is also be
lieved to be a resident near Princeton.
Immediately after .the robbery constables and specials were sent to the scene
of the holdup who later were reinforced
by detectives, Indian trackers and a
posse of Northwest mounted police with
bloodhounds. The pursuers were not
long in striking a hot trail and for four
days and nights kept the robbers dodging through a country of difficult passes
and many hiding places. Nearing Douglas lake the fleeing bandits were first
sighted by Constable Fernie who left
their trail and went to Quilchena for
assistance. Having abandoned their
horses the robbers were not long in being
overhauled by the mounted police.
When halted Grell, alias Dunn, emptied his revolver at the police without
effect and in return was shot in the leg.
The others did not resist. Escorted to
Quilchena two of the robbers, Dunn and
Edwards were readily identified by parties who knew them.
Geo-. W. Edwards, the leader of the
gang, is widely known in Princeton,
having been a resident for about two
years on Jack Budd's ranch, four miles
from town. His acquaintance with Budd
dates from Texan schooldays. There was
nothing in his social life here to indicate
that he was a bad man, although there
are those who, since his arrest, with possibly keener perceptions than average,
find outcroppings in his character which,
they say, point t» a well defined lead of
villainy. Edwards had none of the swagger, 'blow' or bluff of the would-be
desperado or tough ; in conversation he
was pleasant and of considerable polish
of manner. He never made any gun play
although he always carried a brace of
shooters, a common thing with men on
the frontier. Tall and straight, grizzled
with more than 50 years of border life, he
looked a typical veteran soldier so often
met in the states. Whatever Edwards'
career may have been there is a certain
mysterious halo about it which would
give rise to suspicion that something was
'wrong. Suddenly he would drop out of
sight and reappear. He always carried a
well filled purse and this in spite of the
fact that he never worked and had no
visible means of a livelihood. A man
would not require to be a Sherlock
Holmes to scent mischief in one whose
tenor of living did not accord with the
pursuits of an upright man. In the last
analysis of him it will probably be found
that he has been implicated in other
train and stage robberies as the methods
are identical in both the Ducks "and Mission holdups with those in the southern
states and Mexico where Edwards lived
before coming to the secluded Similkameen. In any case he was not a miserable, petty, 10-cent thief whom the law
is slow to appiehend. Many here would
be pleased if he could prove an alibi, on
the other hand, if he be guilty no one
would lift a finger td stay the course of
justice. As it now looks Edwards will
in all probability end his declining days
behind the prison bars.
JohnGrell, aliasBilly Dunn, unlike
Edwards, was known here by two names.
He has been in Cariboo and the Similkameen for some years and followed trapping, prospecting and broncho-busting.
He kriew this country like a book and
was able to guide parties to the most remote corners of it- He came originally
from onei of the western states. Nothing
authentic is known of his early career.
He is an expert shot and must have been
rattled when the police corralled the trio.
Dunn is a short, swarthy man with a
trace of Indian blood in his veins and
would likely be a pliant tool in the hands
of a designing person.
The above described men are known to
be on familiar terms with each other,
their last appearance together is said to
have been about a month ago, when they
borrowed horses and left for Aspen Grove.
Their trial will be held in Kamloops.
TRAIN AT COUTLEE.
It is reported that the C.P.R. will deliver freight over the new branch with
present terminus at Coutlee on Monday
next. Already a train of railway officials
and other notables has arrived there to
inspect the line preparatory to its permanent operation. Ballasting the road is
now proceeding with vigor and the finishing touches to bridges is being given.
A large party of gentlemen drove from
Coutlee to Nicola on arrival of the train,
many of whom will invest in this beautiful townsite and build homes. Nicola,
like Princeton, has been a long time patiently waiting for the turn of the tide
the first ripples of which are now apparent.
SIMISSED VALLEYS
Similkameen   and   Okanagan
have Excellent Climate
and Soil.
Old Country Writer Recommends this
Province to Intending Settler
and Investor.
Major Anderson, V., V. & E. right-of-
way agent, is in town and is negotiating
with land owners along the route up the
Tulameen. Right-of-way is now bought
as far as Allison.
The following extracts from one of a
series of articles appearing in the London (Eng.) Standard gives the old country view of colonial conditions and prospects and extols British Columbia as a
field for intending emigrants :
"The youth or man who contemplates
a colonial life, and is possessed of ^"1000
or more, has before him a very bright
and hopeful prospect; a better prospect,
from the practical standpoint than three
times the capital can buy him in Eng
land. But, as in most other affairs of
life, there are pitfalls to be avoided.
Everyone who has had any experience
of our great colonies has met with glaring examples of the pitfalls. The writer
has seen young men in both hemispheres
attired more gloriously than Solomon,
and employed for the most part in order
ing and paying for liquid refreshment
for bar loafers. Having asked as to the
why and wherefore of the presence at
large of these misguided youths he has
been told, with a shrug of the shoulder
that they were "getting colonial experience."
"The province of British Columbia is
in point of distance more remote from
the old country than any other part of
Canada. But that means no more than
a longer stretch of time spent on the railway in getting there and Canadian trains
are made for living in as well as sitting
in. That wonderful Pacific breeze—the
Chinook—makes a fertile garden of this
province and blesses its people with a
climate which is as near perfection in
very many places as the heart of man
can desire. It is the kindly, invigorating temperateness of the Pacific airs
which render winter, in the Okanagan
valley, for instance, even more enjoyable
than the bright, long summer.
"It is admitted upon all hands that
mining in British Columbia is an industry as yet in swaddling clothes. Miners
are the best buyers in the world where
farm produce is concerned. A mining
community in B.C. is one which earns
very high wages, never touch the earth
for purposes of cultivation, and insist on
having a plentiful variety of every kind
of food. The intending settler on the
land in B.C. need have no fears as to
markets for his produce, even if he takes
no account of the fact that some of the
finest and highest-priced fruit placed on
the English  market last year reached us [
from the sun-bathed heart of the B.C.
lake valleys. The last decade has fully
demonstrated the fact that such valleys
as the Okanagan and the Similkameen
contain the most favorably disposed fruitgrowing locations in North America."
0TTEE VALLEY IN BEIEF.
J. Thynne, of Otter valley, was in
town last Saturday and reports prospects
bright in that section. The crops are
growing nicely and the recent rainfall
gave them a spurt which will add much'
to the harvest tonnage. Mr. Thynne has
been in the valley some sixteen years and
has watched its growth and development
with keen interest. Besides having a
fine, productive and well stocked ranch
he is largely interested in mining and is
one of the first owners of the Cousin
Jack on Boulder creek, which is now
being developed by a company ; recent
assays from it giving $20 in gold. He
is also owner ot high grade mineral
claims on Bear creek, near the Similkameen Mining and Smelting Co*s valua:
ble property. The whole of Otter valley will put on a garb of prosperity with
the welcome toot of the iron horse reverberating throughout the hills of minerals and the green vales. Those who
have proved their confidence in it by persevering endeavor must share in the
good fortune which is dawning.
TRAINS SOON RUNNING.
A semi-official statement is made that
trains will be running out of Midway as
far as Oroville by the first of July. The
grade is in such forward state that i. is
possible to make the announcement with
certainty. Every effort is being made to
procure more laborers, 5000 being re--
quired immediately to cover new work
all along the V., V. & E.
East of Cloverdale camps are being
constructed and contracts are let as far
as Sumas. This portion of the road is
easy to construct and no serious engineering difficulties are met until Hope mountains are reached. Construction from
the west will be pushed with vigor and
the rails will follow the graders closely.
Wm. Murray of Nicola was in Princeton Wednesday last returning on Thursday.
L. Thomson has been engaged as manager of Cook & Co's business at Princeton.
Rev. E. D. Smith arrived in Princeton
last Saturday and went to Hedley on Sunday, where he preached his first sermon
in the Similkameen. He will make
Princeton his headquarters. Services
will be held tomorrow in the court house
at 11 a.m. and 7:30 p.m.
A baseball game has been arranged to
take place on the 24th, next Thursday,
at Princeton between Hedley and Princeton clubs-

HYDROELECTRIC POWER.
The growing demand for electric
and water power in mining, milling,
smelting, lighting and manufacturing purposes is causing inquiries to
be made for available water'power
as a generating force. In recent
years great strides have been made
in harnessing rivers, streams and
falls with the cheapest power yet
known: Hydro-electric power has
been a leading factor in the successful treatment of low grade ores
and is still a stimulus to the discovery and production of that class
of ores. In the Similkameen,
where it is difficult to find a piece
of rock not mineralized, nature
has placed cheap power alongside
of cheap ores, thus compensating
for deficiency in values. And the
day is soon coming when all the
ores, high and low grade, in this
district will be treated with the
cheap hydro-electric power which
abounds everywhere and only re
quires capital to instal the necessary machinery for its application
to the production of metals.
In a recent article in the Star
which was copied in the Spokane
Review a serious error occurred
in giving the average fall of the
Similkameen and Tulameen rivers
west of Princeton. It was there
stated that the average was "20
feet" when it should have been
40 feet. The latter figures would
give a head of ioo feet in 2^ miles
of distance, a force sufficient for all
ordinary purposes. No accurate
figures are available for the volume"
of water in either of the. rivers,
which has been variously estimated
at from 2000 to 5000 miner's inches.
INVITES THE KING TO CANADA.
The house of commons at Ottawa
recently sent an address to King
Edward inviting him, accompanied
by Queen Alexandra, to visit Canada at as early a date as may be
agreeable to them. Should their
majesties consent the occasion would
undoubtedly be marked by demonstrations from the Atlantic to the
Pacific of loyalty and delight for
the privilege of seeing them face to
face. King Edward has won a
place in the hearts of all his subjects by being one of the people
himself;   entering   into   their   re
joicings  with  a   heartiness  which
has   made  him   very   popular, and
joining in'their sorrows with a true
sympathy which has made him beloved.    He has been a kingly king
and a manly man.    The son of an
illustrious mother, who had not an
enemy   in    the    wide   world, and
whose  humble  piety attributed all
of Britain's greatness  to the Bible,
he has followed in her footsteps by
making  his   throne  one  of righteous  rule.     His  visit   to Canada
would tend to knit more closely together   the    British,   French  and
other foreign races now rapidly peopling this country while the political effect would be felt  in lessening
any barriers  to  commercial union
with the  motherland.    If the Star
may  be permitted to suggest, the
visit of His Majesty  should be extended to  the other  great dominions beyond the seas which form a
part of the  vast empire  on  which
the sun  never sets,   thus welding
into a compact whole  the scattered
colonies.    The  experiment  is well
worth trying.    The King is tactful,
a born peacemaker and the greatest
diplomat of the  day.     He  could
well  pave  the  way  to  an   united
empire with one central parliament.
The British   constitution  is  more
elastic and democratic than that of
the United States in that it permits
the head of the nation   to leave his
country and go abroad.
HCENSE NOTICE.
Take notice that I, Mrs. Alice James of. the
Granite Cieekhotel, intend to make application
to the License Commissioners for Nicola district
for permission to transfer her hotel license of
the said hotel at Granite Creek to Chas. DeBarro>
MRS. ALICE JAMES.
Dated Granite Creek, May 10,1906.
IN THE SUPREME COURT OF
BRITISH COLUMBIA.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The recent train robbery at
Ducks and the capture of the
bandits has shown how favorable
the lay of the country is for hiding
refugees. Innumerable passes and
trails would puzzle the best detective to follow a fleeing criminal. In
view of this 'every town in the interior should be provided with at
least a pair of bloodhounds for
tracking felons. The hounds are
not ferocious as a rule. Their keen
scent has often been the means of
recovering stolen cattle and horses
and in southern slavery days were
very effective in tracking fugitive
slaves.
The Mining Standard says that
the Nelson Daily News is protesting against the lack of support accorded the paper by the business
interests of the town. The expense of operation is great, and the
profit realized is little—if any. The
News is about to suspend because
editor Deane has been giving his
time, talent and money for the benefit of a non-enterprising, dead-in-
the-shell community, which has not
the decency to recognize his  effort.
A knocker is a sour-faced vine-
gar-souled detriment to the human
race. He is a gap in the building,
a hole in the ^wall, a crevice in the
foundation. Be a builder. Do
something. Be somebody. Don't
knock.

WARNING - GLANDERS.
In districts where the existence of
Glanders is suspected and especially in
neighborhoods where actual outbreaks
have occurred the adoption of the fol
lowing precautions by owners of horses
and others interested will do much to
prevent the spread of the disease and the
establishment of fresh centres of infection.
1. Horses or mules having a nasal discharge or other suspicio >s symptoms
should not be admitted to livery or feed
stables or yards, blacksmith shops,
church or school sheds, railway stock
yards, private stables or other places
where tbey are likely to come into direct
or indirect contact with animals of the
equine species.
2. All stables, yards or sheds used for
the accommodation of horses or mules
should be regularly and frequently
cleansed and disinfected in the manner
prescribed below.
3. After cleansing the premises thoroughly, and burning all debris, the in
terior should be well gone over with hot
steam, or boiling water, adding to the
latter at least one quart of crude carbolic
acid to each five gallons after which the
entire surface should be thickly coated
with a hot solution of fresh lime wash,
to which crude-carbolic acid has been
added in the above mentioned proportion.
Outbuildings, fences, and tying posts
with which infected animals have been in
contact, should also, when possible, be
thoroughly treated in a similar manner. ■

Mike—Th' rich livemy robbin' th'
poor. Pat—Yis ; 'tis a mystery phwere
th' poor git all th' money they are robbed
of. H
Pease—How do you like that new
beauty doctor ? Mrs. De Velop—He's
perfectly horrid. I asked him what I
N could do to enlarge my arms and he said
I'd better go home and knead my own
bread.
- Meekly—Yes, we're going to move to
Swamphurst. Doctor—But the climate
there may disagree with your wife:
Meekly—It wouldn't dare !
"I see Jack Ketcham has been married
to Miss Roxley." "Yes, and I was sorry
to see it." "Sorry? For her sake or
his?"    "For mine.   I wanted her."
Hicks—My hair comes out in handsful.
If it keeps on I'll soon be bald. Wicks
—Nonsense, if it keeps on you can never
be bald.
A new use has been found for breakfast foods. During the recent baseball
series between the Washington team and
the New Yorks rain began falling about
the fifth inning. "Spit-ball" Chesbro
was pitching. The ball was wet and he
could not handle it, and the batters were
falling on him like a ton of brick.
"Bring some sawdust!" yelled the pitcher. The groundkeeper skirmished for
aome and finding none came out with a
number of packages under his arm. He
handed Chesbro a package of puffed rice.
The pitcher rubbed the ball in it and
struck out the batter. "Here's another
package," the groundkeeper said, tossing
over one. This time it wa*? fretted wheat.
Chesbro used a package of breakfast food
. with every ball until he had consumed
all the samples of breakfast foods which
the groundkeeper had collected during
the winter. "I think that puffed rice
and fretted wheat are superior to sawdust"
said Chesbro when he finished his game.
