BEFORE   THE   CADI
Abell Trombiey Found Guilty
of Supplying Whiskey to
Indian.
And Fined $50 and $81.10 Costs  or
Four Months' Hard—A Warning
to Others.
The case of Abel Trombiey, a JjFrench-
Canadian, charged with supplying liquor
to an Indian, came up for hearing on
Thursday afternoon before Justices of
the Peace Major A. Megraw and Chas.
Thomas. It was nearly 4 by the clock
before the court opened up for business,
the delay being caused by waiting for
the arrival of Major Megraw from Hedley.
This case has a history that dates back
to the 3rd of September last    during  the
Labor Day sports at Hedley. An Indian
by name of Squakim was run in on that
occasion for being diunk and having a
bottle of fire-water in his possession. On
being questioned as to where he obtained
the whiskey he told the police that a
fellow named Abel Trombiey had sold it
to him. Whereupon an information was
laid and a warrant issued for the arrest
of Trombiey. Officers McCauley and
Kruger endeavored to place the strong
arm of the law on Abel, but Abel saw
them first and being on the hurricane
deck of a horse that is fleet of foot he
took to the tall timbers with great en
ergy and keep out of sight until last Saturday when he was arrested at Martin's
rancn on One Mile by Chief Constable
Hewat.
A good deal of interest had been
aroused in the case and when order was
called in court the room was well filled
with spectators. As the prisoner intimated that he was innocent of the charge
witnesses were called to prove the   case
Constable Malcolm McCauley was
called first, and told about the arrest of
one Squakim for being under the influence of whiskey and having in his possession a bottle of booze, which was obtained from Trombiey. The witness also
related how he had tried to arrest the accused, and how the accused had refused
to be arrested and had taken to the hills.
Witness No. 2 was Constable Kruger.
This witness does not speak the English
language very fluently, in fact it is
difficult to know just what tongue he
does excel in. He manage^ however to
convey to the bench that he had taken a
hand in the capture of said Squakim,
and had also tried to take Trombiey into
camp, but as the prisoner had run so fast
just like a coyote he couldn't catch him.
The next witness to swear that he
would "tell the truth, the whole truth,
and nothing but the truth, so   help   me
God," was Mr. Squakim. He admitted
being the original Squakim who had
been drunk at Hedley on the 3rd of Sept.
last, and stated he had bought a bottle of
whiskey from one Abel Trombiey, from
which had obtained his jag. The bottle'
which caused all the trouble was here
produced and Squakim was quite sure it
was the same bottle that he had purchased from Abel. The bottle produced
was a full grown bottle labelled "Kilmarnock" in big red letters, so it must
have been of Scotch descent. A very
small portion of its contents had been
used by the noble red man, probably a
couple of swigs. The court took it for
granted that the innocent looking bottle
contained whiskey but refused to sample
it.
The court here asked the prisoner if
he would like to ask witness any questions. He answered in the affirmative
and proceeded with "You say me I give
you him whiskey; lie you him and no
truth talk"; you—
The bench looked wise and told Mr.
Trombiey that kind of stuff was barred.
The  prisoner resumed his seat. '
Mrs. A Cat, a lady of the dusky hue,
was then called in support of the
defence. She endeavored to prove that
Trombiey was at her house at the time
he was supposed to be hunting red eye
for Mr. Squakim, and testified that Squakim was there also, having arrived on
the scene with a comfortable skate She
did not know where he had obtained   it.
McCauley was recalled to show that
!A Cat was away off in her statement that
Squakim was at her house at that time,
as he was sleeping off his jag in the
skookum house.
' Before closing the evidence the prisoner was given a chance to square himself. Unfortunately for him he.could not
speak or understand English very well
and was unable to express himself clearly.
He evidently had a lot to say but couldn't
say it. However he managed to give it
uot that he did not sell any whiskey to
Squakim nor had he run away from the
police.
This closed the case and court was adjourned for fifteen minutes to give the
bench time to weigh the evidence. On
resuming Trombiey was found to be
guilty of the charge, and was fined $50
and $81.10 costs, or in default four
mouths' hard.
Here the prisoner showed himself to be
strictly up to date by asking for permission to appeal.

DEATH OF PIONEER
M. P.  Bourassau   Passes  to
the Beyond on  Friday,
the 16th Inst.
Came tp California in  1854  and   to
Skjvkf£ameen in 1883—Followed
Placer Mining.
The death occurred at Granite Creek
at noon on Friday last, the 16th inst., of
M. P. Bourassau, one of the pioneer's of
the Similkameen, at the advanced age of
84 years, the cause of death being inflammatory rheumatism, from which the
deceased had suffered for some time.
Mr. Bourassau was a native of Quebec
and in the spring of 1854 left bis home to
seek his'fortune in California, where he
remained till 1883. In that year Mr.
Bourassau pulled up stakes in the Golden
State and moved to British Columbia,
'Settling in the Similkameen, taking part
; in the Granite Creek gold excitement.
In 1887 he moved to the coast making
his home in New Westminster, following
his trade of blacksmithing at which he
was rated Ai. But having followed the
exciting and elusive game of searching
for the hidden treasures of mother earth,
the humdrum existence of city life proved
too slow for a man of his disposition, and
he returned to Granite Creek in 1896,
engaging in placer mining, until shortly
before the grim repear claimed him.
The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon at Granite, the remains being
followed to their last resting place by a
number of deceased's old time friends.
In the absence of a clergyman Judge
Murphy read the burial service at the
grave.
FERNIE STRIKE SETTLED.
A recent despatch from Fernie announces the settlement of the coal strike
Thomas Burke, acting under specific instructions from President Mitchell, has
called off the strike, and directed all the
men to return to work at once, Burke
further states that had Mitchell known
the real state of affairs originally, he
would never have ordered the men out.
An agreement has been signed by Mr. G.
G. S. Lindsey and Thomas Burke, the
terms of which are a complete bactc-
down from the stand taken by Sherman
on behalf of the men, and an abso ute
vindication of the position taken by the
company. There is there is the greatest
satisfaction at the termination of the
trouble.

FIRE AT PRINCETON HOTEL.
The Fire Brigade had a real • fire to
turn out to last night and they responded
to the call in fine style. About 7:30 p.m
it was seen that one of the chimneys of
of the Princeton Hotel was on fire and
fearing serious consequences a fire alarm
was turned in. On the brigade reaching
the scene Chief Campbell ascended the
roof and with the assistance of several
bucketsof water succeeded in extinguish-,
ing the flames.
The fire Thursday night proved that
the fire brigade are all right and that
they can turn out with the best of them;
It also proved that the brigade needs several additions in the way of ladders/
hooks, a life line, lanterns, etc. The
necessary funds to purchase these things
could easily be raised by subscription.
Perhaps a better way would be for the
fire laddies to give a dance.. This should
very popular and besides raising the
needful would furnish an evening of enjoyment.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
To go to the country or not to
go, seems to be the question that is
at present disturbing the peace of
mind of the Hon. Richard McBride.
: Whether it is better to take a long
chance with the "better terms"
cry and trust to the fates to be returned on that issue, or to meet the
House in another session of the
present Legislature, and secure for
himself and friends the sessional indemnity, and endeavor by hook or
crook to stave off defeat, is one: of
-the many things that go to make
the life of the mercenary politician
anything but a bed of roses.
It now turns out that the stick of
dynamite said to have been found
in the coal bunkers of the steamer
City of Seattle was nothing more
dangerous than an inoffensive bologna sausage which a drunken fireman
bought for his lunch, hid it among
the coal and forgot about it.
Last week we quoted the Week,
a paper inspired by Mrs. Jimmy, as
the authority for the statement that
the House would be immediately,
dissolved and an appeal made to
the country some time in December.
Most everyone knows this Mrs.
Jimmy's connection with certain
members of the Cabinet, as disclosed
by the Kaien Island deal and the
Pendray lots scandal. So when
the paper influenced by this woman
publishes anything touching the
policy and intentions of the McBride Government, it is looked upon
as next to official. But up to the
time of writing the House has not
dissolved, and the Premier himself
has declared that he don't know
whether it will or not. Evidently
the Week, must have slipped its
trolley. Perhaps the Chief Commissioner has been talking in his
sleep, without the authority of his
chief. j	
It is probably unnecessary to mention that the following gem is from
the pen of the Hedley joke: "The
Princeton Star blames Mr. Shatford for the expenditure of some
money in Hedley this year. It is
true that a lock-up is being built in
Hedley, but then Princeton has had
a lock-up all along. Why, then,
should tbe Star object to Hedley,
with six hotels, getting a lockup
at this late hour, when Princeton,
with two hotels, has had a lock-up
for years." Now, wouldn't that jar
you. It must surely follow if Princeton, with two hotels has one lockup, Hedley, with six hotels, should
haye three lock-ups.    The Star has
The World says: The Premier
and his Finance Minister are stumping the country. At Cowichan
they addressed a meeting on Thursday night and wisely confined themselves to finances and better terms,
ignoring the Anderson scandal, tbe
800 000 acre robbery, the Spence's
bridge attempted larceny of $1,600,-
000, the Socialistic coalition, and
the many other scandalous matters
that have disgraced their administration. It is significant that the
meeting separated without resolving
anything except itself, which it did
into the thin night air.
ness dealing and diplomacy. To
drag such a question into the arena
of party politics is a crime against
the people of this Province. For
my part I believe in the future of
British Columbia too sincerely to
be wedded to the idea that our
prosperity depends upon a per capita grant of $i sliding down to
25 cents. What we need is present
help to enable us to develop and reasonably conserve what we have
and we need have little fear for future generations."—J. A. Macdonald, M. P. P., leader of the Provincial Liberals, in an interview at the
coast recently.
The Sentinel has ou more than
occasion pointed out tbe necessity
that exists for a general re-arranging of the boundaries of the several
districts into which the Province is
divided for convenience of administration. The Boundary Creek
Times now bears out this contention by calling attention to the disabilities that obtain in that section
of the country. It says: "A no
tice of tax sale of certain mineral
claims on the West Fork recently
appeared in the Penticton pacer.
The sale was to take place at Fair-
view. This incident suggests the
hardship to claim, owners on the
main Kettle and West Fork by being in the Similkameen electoral
district. The country is in the
Greenwood mining division but in
the Similkameen assessment district. The West Fork is connected
with Greenwood by a good road,
over which there is a twice-weekly
stage, and the business relations of
the people are entirely this way.
They have no direct communication
with Fairview and no business relations. It would seem that that
section of the country could most
advantageously be placed in the
Greenwood district." — Kamloops

The Objectionable Hindus.
The Hindus population of Vancouver
are getting themselves into all kinds of
trouble. On Thursday last two of these
lean and lanky natives of India entered
the home of Mrs. Laviolette on Homer
street and on being refused food or
money the assanlted her and beat her
into insensibility.
The Province, referring to this outrage,
comments on the feeling in Vancouver
regarding these people as follows: "A
few more stories of outrages committed
by Hindus on defenceless white women,
a little more excitement, a leader willing
to take the initiative, and out of a meeting of the Vancouver Trades and Labor
Council Thursday night would have
been formed a vigilance committee that
would have started to clean out the
heathen population in quick time. In
the opinion of" the workingmen self-protection against these degraded natives of
India is the only course open to them.
Proper police protection, especially in
the suburbs of the city; cannot be secured; women are left alone in the outskirts of the city while their husbands
are at work, and daily these defenceless
ones are beset by Hindus beggars, who,
it seems, only need the opportunity to
become thieves and outragers of womanly
virtue."
EARL GREY CENSURED.
Earl Grey, governor general of Canada,
for disregard of the Sabbath! in pteparing
on Sunday for a shooting expedition, met
with the censure of the annual meeting of
the Ontario Lord's Day alliance Saturday,
Nov. 12, at Toronto, when the committee
on resolutions reported that an expression
of thanks should be expressed tow-rds his
excellency in recognition of his sympathy
with and assistance to the objects of the
alliance. The reading, of the resolution
brought forth a protest from Rev Mr.
Scott, who stated that he had read in the
newspapers a report of hunting expeditions that tbe governor-general' had
planned for on Sunday. He was sure he
was correct, and in view of this fact he
thought it would be ridiculous to have
such a resolution go on the records. It
was decided to leave the name of Earl
Grev out of the resolution.
