And   then  having  gone  ahead  at   a tremen-  cus pace, it re-elected Dr. Carman  General Superintenent and elected  Rev.  Dr.    Chown    associate,      ,to  steady   things   up.   Rev.

He is .seventy-seven years old  and has been twenty-six years as  general superintendent        Before  that hd was Bishop of the Methodist Episcopal,church.   In theology  he is the oldest living, inhabitant  of   "Paley's   Evidences,"   and   has-  directed the affairs of the church  along that line ever -sonce he could  think.     The Rev. Dr. Chown,. his  coadjutor, is a much younger man  and is  a    moral .reformer o  fthe  sternest sort..  The duties will probably be  divided  this   way.

Wilkie, who' has  been directing-the man-hunt, immediately proceeded to the Indian  reservation where the < remains  were. / ���������  The body was'taken--ashore and  en examination it was found that  the throat was cut on the left side  the gash being similar to the one  which eausled the death of' Mrs.  Reld.  The dead man was completely  attired'in a navy-blue suit, celluloid collar and' light tie, cap with  the najme. of the storekeeper at  Cranibrooke; in ,it and a pair - of  patent leather low ��������� shoes. No  letters or papers of any description were found, with the. exception of a square envelope with the  inscriptions written in pencil,  "Two tickets for Winnipeg, Box  0-41, World, from" Calgary to Toronto,   606   Hamilton   Street."   >  The man's watch was also in hia  pocket, the hands of which stopped at fifteen minutes to three, besides ijwo pocket ' handkerchiefs,  key ring and keys, and a sma,lj\  bofttlje, 'containing carbolic acid  Pinned on his undershirt .was a L.
