[SlT.ClIAl, TO TIIK  C1.AIMJ  Hazel ton,. B. G.,'June, 12.���A terrible tragedy, which may turn out  to.be a triple murder, occurred in  this-vicinity early Tuesday morning.  Tlie body of-a half breed named  Mcintosh was found on the trail  one mile south with a bullet through'  his back. An officer wasdespatch-  ed to Kispiox village to arrest an  ���Indian named Simon, with whom  Mcintosh'had trouble the previous  evening, ..on suspicion, that he was  - the murderer.' When -" about two  miles north- of here the officer cahie  upon the body of a white-man nam-,  ed'-Max Leclaire lying ou the trail  with a similar wound, and returned  to town with the body. A,posse  was immediately organized and sent  'out in pursuit of Simon, but up to  the present have-been unable to locate him. It is now learned that an  Indian belonging to another tribe is  also missing, aud it is feared that he  may have, met a similar fate as the  other two victims. A strong .force  ��f mounted police have been organised and started after the outlaw,  who is reported to be heavily armed  and accompanied by another member of his tribe. Leclaire formerly  resided at Kamloops and is well  known on the coast. A reward'of  $300 -has been offered by the Provincial Government for the capture  ��f the murderer.  Seattle, Wash., June, 21.���Desire  Brothier was returned to Seattle  from Port, Tovvuseud (whither he  had been taken to await deportment  to* Canada) on Sunday night in  charge of immigration officers. As  soon as the party landed on the  dock the Frenchman made his es-"  cape iu the dark but was re-captured  after an exciting chase through the  railroad yards, and is safely locked  behind bars. Brothier begged not  to be taken back to Canada. He  says he has instituted an action  against the Attorney General of  British Columbia for the recovery of  $9,000 which he alleges he left with  that official for safekeeping. Deportment papers 7for Brothier have  aot as yet arrived from the capital.  , Loudon, June 21.���Over two  hundred prominent personages attended a dinner which was given  last night in honor of Miss Ellen  Terry, the actress who, through  the failure of several recently staged  dramatic    productions  of  different I  playwrights, had become financial!}'  embarrassed. During the dinner  Mr. .Winston Churchill  delivered a  brilliant eulogy ou the genius of the  famed actress. The Terry fund  now amounts lo.$44,920.  Durban, "Natal, June 19.���Telegrams xjust -received-here from the  scene of action state that nearly all  of deposed, Chief Bambaata's followers have been either killed, wounded or captured'during the recent  fighting. Colonel McKenzie has  given the remainder of the rebellious  natives until today to surrender or  else to be shot when captured. Two  of the- chiefs of the-Sagadan tribe  surrendered last week.  Wellington,-New Zealand, June  20.���The body of Premier Seddou,  of New Zealaud, who died aboard  ���the steamer Owstrey Grange on the  10th inst. ^ while returning from a  short visit to Australia,-"arrived here  last night and* the landing of-the  casket was witnessed 'by thousands  of citizens.' The body is now lying  in state at the parliament buildings.  The- funeral' will -take place on  Thursday. ;  Loudon, June 21.-7-The British  battleship 'Ramillies "was assisted  back to Sheerness yesterday as-the  result of, haying .been..in collision  with the ' channel battleship Resolution. ' So-.'far-as is'k'nown at present- the ' Ramillies is the only big  ship whi-ch was crippled iir collision  or "otherwise during a week's manoeuvres. Two or three torpedo  craft have been somewhat "damaged  in, collision, hut the number of accidents were very few as'compared  with'former manoeuvres.-' '- "~  ��� Christiana,, ^Norway, T-June 21.���  The Norwegian delegates from America'to attend-the coronation ceremonies of King Kaakpn ^ arrived  here on -Wednesday.''", "���.     '-��� ���  St. Petersburg? June 21.���A despatch from Bialystok says that .city  is in a state of riot owing to a boiiib  which was thrown at a religious  procession while passing through  the business part of the city. The  Jews are'blamed for the occurrence.  ������ Bialystok, via Warsaw, Jude 21._  ���An order of revenge has gone out  for the victims of the recent bomb  throwing. The Jewish revolutionists, who keep hidden on the roofs  of houses' aud behind fences and  the'draperies of windows, fired the  whole day long yesterday with revolvers aud rifles at the government  buildings, at workmen' aiid at peasants passing in the streets. A hundred persons are known to have  been killed and over two ��� hundred  wounded are now in the hospitals.  Martial law has been proclaimed  and  troops are arriving constantly,  London, June 21.���The Royal  Ascot, .England's--great race meeting, presented a usually brilliant  scene yesterday. In the royal enclosure ; with King Edward were  Mr. and Mrs. Nicholas Longworth,  Ambassador and Mrs. Reid1 and  many prominent American women.  Grodno, Russia, June .22.���Owing  to the refusal of the censor at Bialystok to permit the correspondents to  telegraph   the details of the recent  massacre of Jews at that place, the  correspondent of tlie Associated  Press came here to telegraph. The  anti-Jewish rioting is now at an end  and troops are in control. This entire region is greatly excited owing  to the fear that-,the 'late<��� Bialystok  massacre was only a preliminary  signal for a general attack on the  Jews. When the correspondent arrived in Bialystok on Sunday.morning the worst was already over but,  even then, there still remained on  all sides the most revolting evidence  of savage beastiality. All the Jewish houses and shops had been  sacked and burned aud scores of the  inmates had been killed, while-others were wounded or otherwise maltreated. The massacre' continued  for seventy-two hours aud the inhumanity displayed by the assaulters would have done credit to the  Mongolian hordes of Genghis Khan  of the thirteenth centur}'. The  question of the origin of the,massa-  cre is being carefully investigated.  The fact has been established that a  bomb was thrown at the procession,  which was iu honor -of Corpus  Christi day, but the'Jews strenuously deny all responsibility of the act.  .GENERAL,   NEWS.  " Last'week the United States house  of representatives decided that,"instead of being a sea-level canal, the  Panama will be of the lock variety,,  for which'purpose they appropriated  an additional-$25,ooo,ooo.  yTh'e' U. S. senate has agreed to  deposit $i6,ooo?oo'o of government  funds in the banks of San Francisco,  there to remain for a long time, and  will permit the banks to loan the  money to improvement companies  and to all people wishing to rebuild,  all1- loans' to be secured by real-estate mortgages.  An   Ottawa   despatch of the 15th  inst.   says:    The   Brothier   release  was   strongly  condemned   iu    the  Couimons'last night and a  promise  was extracted from the Premier that  if the House thought the papers relating   to   the   pardon   should   be  brought  down   they would  be produced. ' ' Mr.     Macpherson,      who  brought the question up   said:    "I  would  not  bring the'matter before  the House if Vancouver,  the  city I  represent   in   this House,   was not  stirred very deeply over the matter.  Brothier had broken all  the laws of  decency and transgressed the criminal code of Canada.    The people oi  Vancouver  are  much  excited over  the grossuess of the case, and when  they received the  news  of the   release,   they naturally felt  that   the  Government owed them some public  explanation.      I   am   prepared   to  state,   and  if I am ;wroug I can be  corrected, the matter was engineered  from Vancouver by a man who once  held the position of Minister of Justice   in  this country.    Sir Charles  Hibbert Tupper  was the man who  corresponded   with  the  Minister of  Justice asking for the release of the  prisoner.    I  have  been blamed by  friend   and  foe  alike, and xvant to  state,here that I  knew  no more of  Brothier'S; rejeasei than a child unborn until it was brought to  my' at-,  tention'by a telegram from my constituents.   I cannot understand how  the -Minister of Justice should have  listened to meii who are  no  longer  members of the House of Commons,  and   overlook  the  man who repre  sents the constituency so  vitallj^'interested   in   the 'affair.     T would  rather have seen the prison bars let  down and the gates thrown open to  Bill Miner and his gang of desperadoes   than   to  this man Brothier.  Bill   Miner  took  chances wilh his  life,   but  this   man  Brothier���it is  hardly parliamentary   language   to  use���this   man  Brothier ran a common house of prostitution with   his  own  sister  aiid   other young 'girls,  kept,them there in a house, and   is  supposed   to  have made. $25,000 in  three years out of his vile trade. - I  say there is no language too strong  to condemn such a thing.    Later, I  shall ask that the papers be brought  down  iu  connection  with'the matter."    Hon. G. Foster'said:    "It is  absolutely vile in principle to let  a  prisoner go free on condition that* he  leave the country and  carry abominations to,other Christian countries.  I would rather see a murderer' turned   loose  than  an enemy to society  such as Brothier desired to be." -*I do  not   think  the  Minister of Justice  rose to the occasion when he intimated   that,  he  thought   Vancouver  would never'be troubled   with", this  than again'because'public sentiment  was  such' that he would find* it-unhealthy to go:''back. ���" I .donf think  we  have  reached  the 'condition in  this country when we must depend  upon lynch law t'o'see justice'carried  out, and men offending against" jus-  tice kept in,their proper places."  -The-Lav/ Courts;*  S. C. P. Co. Ltd. vs. Conway ct al.  Trial fixed for June 27th.  The new trial of Clay, vs. Queen  was this week fixed for the 29th of  June.  Miller vs. Miller, Cox et al came  ou for trial yesterday and was adjourned till the 29th inst.  The action of Callaghan vs. Spruce  Creek Power Co., Ltd., was on- for  trial before His Honor Judge Young  yesterday. This action was for  damages to plaintiffs tunnel caused  by a breakage in defendant company's ditch.  Judgment pending.  Pine Creek Power Co., Ltd., vs.  Brackett et al came on for trial before Judge Young on Monday aud  Wednesday, After argument His  Honor reserved judgment. This is  an action for trespass by defendants  ou the notorious "Buckeye" c'-iiui  on Pine creek.  Henry Garneau was brought before Magistrate Fraser last-Saturday  on a charge of unlawfully opening a  postal letter and was sent up for  trial. On Monday Garneau appeared before His Honor Judge Young  to elect for trial and thereupon took  a jury trial at the assizes. Subsequently on Thursday he re-elected  for a speedy trial, which is taking  place today.  Habeas Corpus.
