The Simon-Peter hunting party
has got cold   feet       They are tired.
The following taken from the Times
gives this impression,   It says: Thi
hunt  through the northern  wilds
for Simon Cun-a-Noot and Peter
Hyemadan, the Indian fugitives, is
to be suspended until such time as
some definite information as to
their whereabouts can he obtained.
This has been decided on the report of Otway Wilkie. the constable, who lias just returned from a
chase which covered I period of
nine months, and on the advice of
B. E.I oring, Indian agent at Hazelton. Mr. boring, in a letter to
Superintendent Hussy says that all
report! of the fugitives having
been seen since last July lack foundation in fact and have had no result other than that of sending
constables   on   wild   goose   chases.
Without some reliable information
about the movements oi the alleged murderers it is only a waste
of money and energy for the police
to continue the search. There is
a reward of one thousand dollars
offered for the capture of the pair,
and it is expected this will induce
some of the law-abiding Indians to
locate the outlaws before the summer is over.

On Thursday morning about 2
o'clock tin- engineer observed lire
coming oat of both bunkers and so
rapidly did it spread that the crew
and several Indians piled into a
boat and on leaching the dock
raised the alarm of lire. The SS.
Northwest, alongside the dock,
loading freight for up-river and
billed to sail at ten the same day,
steamed over to the burning tugboat and after I four hours' work,
said Purser Whitney, "we succeeded in putting out the fire that
would otherwise have destroyed
the tug. Three streams were
playing on her at one and tlie
-ami- time. Nobody was on hoard
and it looked to us as if the boat
had been abandoned, so we put an
officer of the   Nortwest in charge."
It is understood a salvage claim
has been entered.
The tug was well insured and
the underwriters have tbe matter
in hand.
Mr. 0. Cuuingham -ays it was
a case of spontaneous combustion,
a- tbe bunkers were well tilled at
tile  time.
All the woodwork in the engine-
room and up to the pilot house
bear testimony that the Northwest
did not arrive any too soon.
