Sept.  1, 1906  The opening of the shooting season  is at hand and local nimrods  are making active preparations for  the day of all the year to them.  Today, September 1st, it iS  lawful for sportsmen to shoot ducks,  ���������f all kinds, snipe, bU-teru, .heron,  Plover, meadow lark, grouse, including prairie chicken and ptarmigan,  bull oose. .bull cariboo, bull elk, bare,'  doer, mountain goat and mountain  sheep. This completes the list of  birds and aaimals that may be shot.  It will be noticed and special attention is drawn to the fact that  pheasants and quail are not included  These may only be shot by an order-  in-council declaring an'open season,  and it is expected that this necessary precaution will be taken and 1 he  season opened on October 1st, and &  penalty for shooting, before .this date  is also' provided for, SlOb or 30  ��������� days imprisonment being the maximum.  Following the examplo of last reason,  it will  Again be Unlawful-  to expose for sale or to sell grouse  or deer on Vancouver Island. This  law was only recently (introduced and  has had a very bericBcial effect otu the  sport. In past years it has been tho  custom for hunters to make a business of providing the market with  both grouse and venison, but tho action of tho legislature on passing, a  law prohibiting this has almost effectually stopped  the  practice.  Tt is also illegal to export birds or  game,in their raw state and in each  case heavy penalties will be imposed  or any person convicted of breaking  Ae regulations. The bag limit fori  the season ties the shooter down r0  5'back doer, 2 bull elk, 2 bull moose  5 mountain goat, 3 mountain shoe,"  250 ducks and  250 snipe.  Penalties are also provided ior in  fractions of these regulations, No,i  residents are required to obtain a  license before being allowed to take  part in the sport. For big gam1  they are required to pay a license <>.  $30 an4 for game birds $5.00 l'oi  one week.  In conversation with an oxpe- ii-n  ced sportsman yesterday, he <- .

She  told him to wait will after breakfast, thinking, she says, that Mr.  Sloane had just been but on a  "good time" and,had not returned.

In r?n  apparent daze ho insisted lie would  go for his mother. The police finally pursuaded him to accompany  them to the Turn-bull Undertaking  parlors where the body or -his father  reposed.  On arriving at the place the boy  threw himself at the reel of the  corpse, covered his face with his  J hands and appeared to be weeping  bitterly. Ollicer McDeimott suddenly said, "Where is your mother?"  With a stall the boy straightened  up. His eyes were dry. lie had  not- been weeping.  Through the active brain   of    lhe  officer the thought flashed, "Why is he,  |-prelending to weep?     What has    he  to conceal?"  -That  was the  undoing of     Sidney  Sloane.  Detective McDcr-iiioH and Officer  Hood tiviced the evidence. Thc boy  was questioned. He weakened and:  told the si cry, He told it brokenly; occasionally sobs shook his  frame, but finally he told thc story  apparently straight.  At first he said a iiisin named Riley, of Sheridan, Wyo., had conspired to kill his father for 3.500 he carried. He.said Riley had struck the  fatal blow, had taken $150 and lcil  for Rtossland.  Officer IdcDcrmoU told the boy he  was lying.  Then young Sloane said his father '__  had    attacked    him   in passion   and  that lie   had killed him in self    defence.  Then, seeing that all was hopeless,  he gave the full story, -telling how  it happened, the plans and thc    concealment.  The boy was locked up. He is now  lying in the city jail, awaiting his  fate. All day crowds had been gathering around thc station, seeking  admission. Finely pressed women,  wishing to see the boy, as a friend  of the family, and attorneys wishing  to get a word to the ears of the  boy.  fratio iii  nil  Liberal Premiums & Valuable Prizes���������The Best Stock''  Market in the Province���������Live Stock Parade" Daily���������3  Days Horse Racing-^$5,606 in Purses and VakfabJe..

But  the most .unusual feature is that it  whistles "tunes with weird accuracy.  The colonel was delighted when the  rodent rendered '-'Dixie," and its rendition ol "My Old Kentucky Home"  made him cry, strong man that he  is. For more than two hours tho  rat sat in-' a corner whistling familiar airs. When' Col.

Says the Nelson News: There will  be things doing in lacrosse before  long if calculations do not go astray  The Nelson team cannot find any  worthy opponents now, as they have  disposed of Rossland and Phoenix.  Grand Forks-Greenwood seem, to be  afraid to tackle the boys in green.  Manager Deasy last night authorized  a representative of the Daily News  to state . that the Nelson lacrosse  team claims the championship of the  Ivootenays and are prepared to defend it against all-comers. Should  Cranibrook be anxious to contest the  title they are respectively requested  to communicate with manager Deasy  and arrange for a game or series oE  games to settle the matter finally.  Other teams can also be accommodated, Should this open challenge  pass unnoticed by the other clubs,  Nelson will arrange to play the eastern team which comes west this  fall to the New Westminster fair and  will play them as champions of the  Kootenays. . , m~:  ^A  VfiZtfW-fc:  1  ,;i?A%'itA  ';MBi  ^Ws^A  A-:lts&  ?tMk-  ���������..���������.^���������'���������'���������I's"'.'-.*  '.LV"l-V7,'  ���������V,v."sj-J(vv*  - v;' i������'^^.'^-^,Y^';"' ���������'-Vltf 7.^:-.-''r''V^'!r:^v|!i1^^  th g l iS&iS:^^^  ^<?
