C, FRIDAY,   JANUARY 2, 1920  "Tell me what you Know is true:  I'can guess as well as you."  $1.00 PER YEAR  ' t3-  Frank J. Gonyers, Electrical Engineer, Loses Life  in Blaze of Doubtful  Origin  that Mr..and Mrs. Conyers were under the.impression that it was coa]  oil.  The house, which was owned by  G-eo. E. Massie, was gutted by the .'  tire, and although tho brigade was  on theground a few minutes after  the alarm was turned in, nearly all  the contents of the- house were do  stro'yed.  Frank J. Conyers, an electrical  engineer employed as foreman in  one of the West Kootenay Power  company's construction camps, lost  his life in a tragic manner in a fire  which broke out at about 9:30 Wednesday morning and destroyed his  home, at the foot of Second street  The origin of the fire is. still a  mystery. Theories are advanced as  to how it might, have started, but  nothing definite is known. EveD  Mr. Conyers, who lived for about  four hours after the accident and  talked rationally on other subjects,  failed to account for it..  The facts in connection  with  the  tragedy seem to be: About" 9:30 in  the morning Mr. Conyers got out of  bedand wentinto the kitchen to make  the fire in the kitchen stove. He had  been gone enly a few minutes  when  he burst into the room  where  Mrs.  Conyers was, his clothing'burned off  him,  and   followed by  a   sheet of  flames.   As he fell on the floor, Mrs.  Conyers caught him and  heroically  pulled him outside the house. Then  she called for help.    First  aid   was  rendered   by   Mrs.   Larsen,   whose  hospital is  close   by,   and   by   the  neighbors who had respouded to the  .; call for help.    Dr. Truax shortly ar  rived, aud  the  suffering  man   was  taken to the Grand   Forks hospital,  where  he passed away  at  about  2  o'clock.    He retained consciousness  up   to   the last.    It was  apparent  -  from the first that nothing  could be  done to save his life, as the skin  on  ;  hia entire body was literally   burned  off him, but  everything   known  to  medical science was done to alleviate  his suffering;  Conyers was about 32 years of  age, and he and his wife have been  respected- eitizens of Grand Forks  for about 'five years. His' parents?  livo in Boise, Ida. Mrs. Conyer's  brother, Arthur Pierson, took the  body of the unfortunbte man to  Spokane yesterday, and it will be  , interred in that city.  Mrs..Conyers was overcome with  smoke, and the shock of ihe terrible  accident has prostrated her with  grief, but she sustained no physical  injuries.  The   most  generally      accepted  theory as to the cause of the fire is,  that there must have been an   open  can of gasoline either in the kitchen  or in the woodshed, which adjoined  the kitchen (the door  between   the  two  rooms  is to  have been open);  that the rooms had   become permeated with the fumes of gasoline, aud  that when Mr. Conyers struck   the  match there was an explosion  and  an  instantaneous   blaze.    But   Mr.  Conyers, before he died,  disclaimed  knowledge     of    there,  being/any  gasoline   in   the   house, aud  Mrs.  Conyers is said to have corroborated  this statement. Still, those who hold  to this view persist in believing that  the gasoline, was in   the house, and  W. J, Galipeau, manager of the  Grand Forks Concrete company, re~  turned to Rossland yesterday, aft������r  spending the holidays with his family in this "city. Since August last  this company has done about $14,.  000 worth of work in Trail and Ross-  land. Of this amount, about $11,-  000 was for constructing concrete  sidewalks in . Trail. Mr. Galipeau  will complete his contracts in Ross-  land in two or three weeks, and  then he.intends to take a course of  training at some factory where concrete pipe is maunfactured inorderto  better qualify him tp put in a tender  for making the pipe for'the pro  posed irrigatisn system in this valley.

One day he hurried to the captain. "S���������s-s-s-s���������"  he stuttered.  "Ob, I can't be botheredl" said  ,the captain angrily.-"Go to somebody else."  The man Uied to speak to^ everyone on board, but no one would  wait to hear what be bad to say.  At last he came to the captain  again.  "Look here," said the captain, "I  can tell you what to do when you  want to say anything; you should  sing it." Suddenly,in a tragic voice,  the man began to sing."  Should auld   acquaintace  be  forgot  and never brought to mind?  The blooming cook's  fell overboard  and is twenty miles behind.  H. Ommanne, who arrived in the  city two weeks ago from London,  England, committed suicide at his  ranch, two miles east of town, on  Tuesday evening by taking a dose of  cyanide of potassium. He took the  poison while sitting in the drawing  room shortly after supper, arid expired before medical assistance  could be.secured.  Mr. Ommanne was in the city on  Tuesday afternoon, and bought Joz.,  or 120 grains of cyanide of potassium at Woodland's drug store. He  stated that he wanted the poidon to  kill obnoxious animals, and signed  for it in the usual way. Two grainsi  of this poison, according to the testimony given at the inquest, is sufficient to kill a person. The dose  that Mr. Ommanne took, was,  therefore, big enough to kill sixty  people.'  Mr. Ommanne returned home in  time for supper, and he was apparently in his usual spirits while" he  was at the table with the family,  consisting of himself, his wife and  the man who is taking care of the  ranch, who is a returned Canadian  soldier whom Mr. and Mrs. Om-'l  manne met in London.  After supper Mr. Ommanne retired to the drawing room, the man  went out tothe barn to take of the  stock, while Mrs. Ommanne busied  herself with the housework in the  kitchen. In a short time ner husband returned to the kitchen for a  glass of water. 'As he retired from  the kitchen she noticed that he put  something iuto the glass and then  stirred the contents with a teaspoon.  She was under the impression that  he was taking some kind of medicine  and paid no attention to him.  When the caretaker of the ranch  returned to the drawing room from  the barn Mr. Ommanne was sitting  in a big armchair,   apparently   tak-j  until next spring. Evidently Mr.  Ou-iuianue changed his mind since  mat time.  Mr. Ommanne was an officer iu  the imperial army, and he was stationed in India for a number of  years. He received his discharge  from the seryicein May, 19IS. Some  years "ago Lie suffered an apoplexic  stroke, and it is said that he never  wnolly recovered from this attack.  Ui late bis health appeurs to have  been bad, and it was stated at the  inquest that a few days ago he told'  hiB wife that he was afraid he  would never be of much use to her  in taking care of the ranch. He was  about forty-five years of age.  Coroner Kingston held an inquest  over the remains at 4 o'clock this  afternoon. The jury returned a verdict of premeditated^suicide, with a  belief that the deceased was mentally unbalanced when he committed  the act. The coroner's jury was  composed of James Uuoke, foreman;  ii. W. Collins, Robert Lawson, J. B.  MarkelJ, T. Padgett and Ed Hardy.  The remains will be interred in  Evergreen cemetery tomorrow.  Building Suitable for the  Requirements of the  City ��������� Three Trustees  Resign  Wron|������ A^ain  Ona of the reminiscences that  former President Taft delights in re  lates to one of his maiden speeches,  in which he came off anything but  a hero. The speaker was on that  easiest of easy tasks, attacking the  government, when the heckler .ciied  out:  "You're wrong, sir!"  A little  nettied,  Taft continued  without heeding.    Presently, in  an  swer   to   another  strong  assertion,  came again:  "You're wrong, sir!"  Mr. Taft  scowled, but  continued  bis speech.  "You're wrong, sir!"   again   rang  out the voice.  Angrtly addressing the persistent  interrupter, Mr. Taft cried, -'Look  here, I could tell this man something about the government that  would make his hair stand on end!"  "You're wrong again, sir!" came  from the critic, as, amid the roars of  the crowd, he stood up and removed  bis hat. His head was as bald as a  billiard ball.

Miss Alice Hutchison, B.A.,of Toronto, honor graduate in classics,  was appointed to fill the vacancy in  the high school teaching staff caused  by the resignation of Miss Mc-  Naughton.  A petition was received from residents south of the city asking for  free conveyance both ways daily for  school children in that district.  Number of petitioners, seven; number of children to be benefited,  twelve. It being understood that a  similar pe'tttion had been presented  to the education department, the  matter was laid over by the trustees :  for further information.  In connection with the proposed  new high school, the education department's supervising architect, .  through the provincial government,  forwarded plans of a building suitable for the requirements of the city.  The plans call for a four-room  school, with suitable basement,with  accommodation to provide forscience  and manual training rooms; The  plans are under consideration.  The Hon. Dr. MacLean, minister  of education, =vrote informing the  board that his department will be  pleased to contribute 40 per cent of  the cost of the proposed building.  The trustees, while appreciating the  offer, felt that in view of high school  facilities being provided for the adjacent district by the city, that the  government should at least provide  assistance to the extent ol 50 per .  per cent. This poini is beiug taken  up with Dr. MacLean.  Mrs. Forbes Kerky,  on behalf  of  thel.O.D.E.,   addrsssed  tho  board  in connection with the salute of  the  schoorxflag and other matters relative   thereto.    The     order     (local  branch) kindly offered to donate  a  Hag for each classroom for the purpose of instruction as to its meaning  and what it stands for, with a   view  of inculcating a spirit of patriotism.  Tbe board  expressed   its   gratitude  and willingness to accept   tbe same.  Frank Cooke tendered his resignation as school janitor, and   Neii lie-  Nevin w&s appointed to fill   tbe  vacancy, his duties to commence January 1, J 1)20, at a salary of 8100 per  month.  Mesdames Henniger and Cooper  and Mr. McKie, who wer'1 appointed  by the board last January to (ill the  vacancies caused by lack of nominations, resigned their offices in  order to allow the electorate an opportunity to express their wishes in  the choice of school trustees.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 2, 1920  Two candidates have announced themselves  as being in th ^mayoralty race, thus ensuring a  contest for the office of chief magistrate of the  city in the coming municipal election. Candidates for aldermen are exhibiting a little more  shyness, but it is anticipated that in another  week there will be enough of them in thefield  to make the election interesting. A council  elected by ratepayers is usually more satisfactory to the citizens than a council elected by  acclamation.  (T~  :=^  .t'H  gs  One of the knotty points "which has confronted the provincial government in diverse  forms during the past year has been the operation of tlie British Columbia prohibition  act. Flaws have developed to an extent that  neither were anticipated by the framers of the  original act nor were they so obvious that  their correction could have been effected by  legislature at its" last session. It has been  found that the prescription has become, a popular- means of procuring the banned liquid  under an alleged "medicine label." This is a  \matter, however, upon which the public gaze  is' focussed at the prosent time and action has  been promised.  Steady progress, it is stated, is being made  with the surveys and in perfecting the initiatory details for the proposed irrigation system  in this valley. The department of lands,  whose minister has posted himself upon the  complex situation existent iu the dry belt of  the province, has taken a keen interest in irrigation itfatters. In spite of well-known difficulties, a solution has been found, and the effect oFpolicies designed upon the principle of  helping those who help themselves already  has begun to be felt. The creation of a con  servation fund has enabled the department to  do much for a section of the province whose  water supply hitherto has been more or less  in the lap of the gods.  Only 4000 out of a population of 14,000 are  left at Verdun, and many of these have  ruined homes. Coincidently, Germany is still  pleading for sympathy and bewailing the harsh  terms of the peace treaty.  The other week a decoration which he had  won in the Afghan war of 1878 was received  by Staff-Sergeant White, in England. He has  at least the satisfaction of knowing that he is  not the only soldier to suffer from similar procrastination on the part of tjje war office.

Ladies and Getlemen:  Plaving been requested by a large number of the ratepayers of the city to allow  my name to stand for nomination for  Mayor, I have consented to do so, and if  elected I will work for the best interests  of our city. I respectfully solicit your  vote and influence.  G. H. AGRES.  We have received a beautiful volume of  verse bearing the above title from the publishers, the Victoria. Printing & Publishing-  Company, 5*1 Yates street. The book is handsomely bound, and the 170 pages of poems of  jove, nature, religion and sociology are artisic-  ally printed. The - author is given as . The  Prospector, who, it is asserted, is a new British Columbia poet. After reading a number of  selections,we have come to the conclusion that  the publishers' claim, that the poems "are fragrant with the breatl^of balsams and pines," is  correct. To give our readers a clearer idea of  the contents of the volume, we reproduce a  poem depicting the life and character of a personage who was well known to every old-  timer of this district:  FATHER PAT  We don't go much on parsons,  ^      Here in ihe minin' belt  Tween 1'ossland and the Similkameen;  But there was one we felt  A most uncommon likin' for���������  You take mv word for that:���������  The latch-strng hung outside each door  For good friend Father Pat.  He bore the Church of England brand,  ���������But didn't bank on creeds;  His way to hearts was not with words,  Bat helpful, Iovin' deeds.  Though we were hard to work-upon,���������  Not readily enticed���������  . We called him the first Christian  That ever lived���������since Christ.  He never peeked at keyholes,  Nor fought the cigarette;  He never frowned on lager beer,  Nor games of chance,���������-and yet,  I think that if there is a place  Where good souls get their dues,  They'll find room there for Father Pat,  'Fore preachers you might choose..  He never built no churches,  Nor learned to primp or pose;  His shoes were red and dusty,  And he never wore good clothes:  Flis manners were just Christian,���������  Becomin, meek and mild,  And he loved each rough-neck miner  Like a mother loves her child.  If one of us was ailin'  He'd take his pack and hike  To that cabin in the mountains  Where illness chanced to striks,  And he never thought of leavin'  Till all was right and well:���������  And that's why most us miners won't  Meet Father Pat in hell.  He-died: we built a monument  At Eossland, on the hill,  And many sun burned prospectors  Chipped in to pay the bill;  And when I look upon it  A great big tear-drop starts;���������  But it's nothin' to the monument  He biiilt within our hearts.  Looting Alter the Children's Eyes  Several weeks of lonp winter evenings are ahead of us. With the  use of artificial light, it is.,a trying time for the eyes. If slight defects already'exist, :> dim or unsteady light will greatly aggravate  the situation. This is particularly true among children, whose vitality and power of resistance is much lower than grown-ups. Inflamed lids, styes, headache and watery feyes are almost sure indications of some sort of eye trouble. If your child, has trouble with  his eyes^ bring him in and let us examine his eyes.  A. D.

Precaution  An eminent   K. C,   briefed in    a  great case, was   appointed  judge  on  the eve  of the trial.    Thereupon   his  clerk returned the brief with some regret, bnt not the cheque'for  several  hundred guineas   which   had    accompanied the   papers.     The  instructing  solicitor stepped across to tho   K.C 's  chambers to offer his   cbmrratulations  and incidentally to draw   attention to  this littlo oversight.   "Yes," said    the  K.C , "1 quite appreciate your point,  but I am really sorry I   can    uot   return the cheque.     I would   really   be  verv glad to do so, but   it would   bo  against all precedent."    Said the so  licitor:  "I quite appreciate your  difficulty,- and thought there   might   be  something of that kind, so on my way  to   your   chambers   I   called at my  banker's and stodped tho cheque."  There's a Reason  If you chance to   see   a  prominent  Kansas City attorney walking toward  the Hall of Records,   or the   county  jail, with his head hanging as in deep  dejection,"remember there's a  reason.  It all happened the other day when  Lou was questioning a young   culprit  who   .scuffed    tho  floor with liis feet,  hung his head and mumbled.    Finally  in  exasperation Guernsey said:  "/{old up your head. Why don't  you you stand up straight, hold your  head up and look the world square in  the eye, tho way I do?"  The boy pondered 'a   moment and  then asked:  "Mr.   Lawyer, did" you   over   gn  2ft> odds Qiow bad your liver, stomach  or bowels; how much your head aches,  how miserable you are from constipation, indigestion, biliousness ana sluggish bowels���������you--always .get relief with  iCascarets.

PARE, Proprietor  Yauc HoTia, Fikst >Stim;i:t  &  Srjsa  R  <J#  MR- BUSINESS CMAN,  have you ever thought  that advertising puts you in  good company? It is an old  saying that a man is known  by the company he keeps.  When you join the ranks of  the advertisers you join the  ranks of the biggest and  most successful merchants  and manufacturers in the  world.  How many large concerns  can you name  in any  large   \  city in the country?   Name  them and you will notice  that all are big advertisers  and -all are leaders in their  lines. Ask your friends to  name the most successful  merchants they know in the  big cities, and in each case  the name ot a great advertiser will be mentioned.  The same rule is true of  smaller citiej' and towns.  The. successful merchants  are the advertisers. The  advertiser stamps himself as  one having confidence in  himself and his Wares, as  one proud of his calling and  seeking publicity and the  test of patronage.  ^  in  @?  ite&sfsg  *asJ Qttf/  ^Ic^rPvfii^    Sps-B   "|[ ������|g)    $S  StSrSS   M  wmimwwwmmmMBmammmmmMMmimtam  ���������mumwmjummn THE   SUN.
