Disappearance of Prospective
City Team Causes a
Lively Stir
Was Merely a Case of Lone-
someness and Neglect to
Lock Barn Door
There was a furor of excitement
in the city all day Wednesday.1
Early in the morning, it was dis-'
covered that the prospective cor*
poration team had disappeared during the night. The team, although
not the property of the oity, was
kept in the city stable awaiting final
approval, at the risk of the city. As
the day wore on, and no trace of the
missing animals was found, the
stories in connection with their die-
appearance grew proportionately
startling. The back door of tbe
barn, it was gravely asserted, had
been blown open with dynamite,
and the horses extracted by force;
a number of people had seen .wo
horsemen galloping at a furious
speed towards Cascade at 1 o'clock
in the morning, and felt certain* they
were the culprits racing for tbe international'boundary line./David
Woodhead wag also placed in an unenviable position by the gossipers.
It was asserted that he had been engaged by the city to see that no one
carried off the horses, and that be
had fallen asleep while on duty, the
same as any up-to-date policeman.
If the team did not return by 6
o'clook he would be imprisoned and
placed * on a bread-and-water diet.
A number of citizens even * went so
far as to express the belief that it
would be a good thin-* for the com*
iniinity if the whipping-post could
be brought back from' the past ages,
and made a regular form of punishment for certain offences. The old-
timers shook their heads, and reverted to ancient history. "A regular 'Blue Goose' affair," they muttered, as a sickly- smile crept
over their countenances. This talk
so affected Mr. Woodhead that he
was on the verge of a nervous collapse, and he took his revenge by
kicking off a few nails that protruded half a foot above the sidewalk
planks. Among the aldermen the
feeling of anger was mixed with
mortification. They were all of the
opinion tbat the guilty party, or
parties, if apprehended, should be
severely dealt with. Aid. McDonald forgot himself, and for once he
agreed with them. Even Aid.
Cooper did not object. It was the
most unanimous meeting of the aldermen since the present city government took power. Mr. McDonald was most vehement in his denunciation of the outrage. If the
perpetrators were caught he would
punish them severely—he would
sentence them to six months on the
scavenger wagon. As this sentence
rolled from his lips the most stouthearted of the bystanders turned
pale. Prior to this threats of taking them across the line and lynching them had failed to elicit a compassionate remonstrance. But six
months on the scavenger wagon!
That was a living death.   The com
ment of the citizens on the event
was not very flattering to the city
government. They concurred in
the opinion that tbe act of locking
the stable door after tbe horses had
been stolen, so to speak, was no better financing than to allow private
citizens to build on city property,
and then charge the city rent forthe
building, or of doling out patronage
to favorites at whatever price they
might see fit io charge. One man
even went so far as to say that the
act reminded him of a recent occurrence in the city, when certain parties went through the form of asking
for tenders for supplies for a public
institution, and omitted to notify the
firm most capable of furnishing the
gotids for fear-that he might get the
contract, thus taking it away from a
concern in which they supposedly
own stock.
When the excitement was running highest Chief Savage received a
wireless message from Danville, and
he went and hired a livery rig and
drove away. Four miles above Danville he found the horses grazing at
their old home. It later transpired
that some one had left the stable
door open, and the animals had become lonesome and gone home, eluding the vigilance of the American
customs officers.

Herself and Infant Sister the
Only Occupants of the
House
An attempt was made to burglarize
the home of F. J. Kennedy, a short
distance north of the C.P. R. station,
while Mr. and Mrs. Kennedy were
attending church services last Wednesday night, by a sneak thief who
was evidently a professional at his
business.
Mr. Kennedy's 15-year-old daughter, Louise, and an infant sister
were the only occupants of the house
at the time. The baby had been put
to bed, and Miss Louise was studying
her school lessons for the following
day, when, at about 9:30, she heard
some one rap on the window at which
she was sitting. She paid no attention to the noise, f.nd presently she
heard someone try the front door. Find
ing that locked, the party went to
the kitchen door and again rapped.
Thinking that it might be one of the
neighbors, the girl went to open the
door, but to guaid herself against unwelcome visitors, she araied herself
with a revolver. On unlocking the
door, a man, who had evidently been
crouching in an endeavor to pick the
lock, raised himself so that he could
be plainly seen through the upper
panel of the door, which is of glass.
He put his foot against the door and
attempted to force his way into the
room. The girl showed remarkable
courage for her age, and shoved the
revolver in his face, ut the same time
warning hiin that if he made an attempt to enter she would shoot him
dead. The man parleyed with the
girl for about five minutes before he
finally sneaked away. It was evidently his intention to divert her attention from the gun so that he could
get it; but during all that time she
never once lost her aim on him. He
asked her if she would really kill
him. She answered most decisively
that if he attempted to force his way
into the room she would shoot him.
He also showed her a full kit of burglars' tools, and told her it was an
easy task for him to enter any house.
On leaving he said he was 'in old
hind at tho business, but that this
was the first time he had ever been
balked by a young girl, and made a
threat that ho would get oven.
Tho girl believes sho could identify
tho intruder. Ho was about 5 feet 10
inches in height; wore a black slouch
hat, und u black cntuway coat, uml
was smooth shaved, with about a
week's growth of beard, The oity
and provincial police were notified,
but up to the present time no trace of
the man has been found.
Tho girl exhibited considerable
heroism for her age, Thu smile ordeal would have unet'ved niuny an
older person.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 21,   1906
The question whether or not we
are to have a provincial election ihis
fall is the paramount topic of discussion in the press of British Columbi.i
today. The Liberal papers insist that
the election will be pulled off in December, but the Conservative papers
say the McBride government will
remain in power until the expiration
of its term be'ore appealing to the
country. The following extracts
from the Nelson News and the Victoria Times are printed for what they
are worth.  The News says:
In reply to a telegraphic enquiry
made Monday night by the Daily
News of the Victoria Colonist, the
chief government organ, as to what
reliance could be placed in the rumor
that Premier McBride proposed to go
to the country in December, word
came back last evening that McBride
absolutely denies the report. We
give publitity to the premier's denial
and without impugning his good faith
we reiterate our advice to the electors
to be prepared for an election campaign in the near future.
Says the Victoria Times: The Colonist gives a qualified denial to the
statement of the Times, upon the subject of an impending dissolution of the
provincial legislature. The denial is
made upon the authority of Hon.
Richard McBride, the Premier. We
did not expect that the organ of the
government would admit the truth of
the statement. That would not be in
accord with the policy of the government, which must obviously be to conceal its intentions until the last possible moment Neverthless and notwithstanding, we reiterate that which
has already been stated in onr columns: that the government will not
again meet the legislature; that an
understanding has been reached with
the Lieut.-Governor and that a dissolution will be granted when it is asked for; that every possible preparation
has been made for a general election,
and that the constituencies will be
appealed to before the end of the
present year. Furthermore, regardless though the Piemier may be of
public opinion, lightly though he may
regard his reputation for veracity, we
venture to say Hon. Richard McBride
will not, through the columns of his
Victoria organ, proclaim in set terms
his intention of again calling the
House together for the transaction of
public business.
At any rate, even if the council is
determined to buy one, there is no
apparent reason why it should pay a
first-class price for a second-class
team.
McBean k Johnson, proprietors
of the Winnipeg hotel, have rented
the old Miner house on Third street,
and will run it in connection with
the Winnipeg, thus giving them
ample room to accommodate their
increasing business.
Trueman, the photographer, will
be at Blome's old studio hut for a
few days longer. This will be your
only opportunity for some time to
secure first-class photographic work
There were wild rumors in circulation a couple of days ago to the
effect that John Houston, the erratic M.P.P. for Nelson, had been
murdered in Goldfield, Nev. Later
information, however, developed the
fact thrt Mr. Houston is now living
in Dinuba, Cal.

As it is not improbable that the
provincial general elections will take
place before the end of the year those
interested should take note that the
voters' lists close on Monday next for
the November revision. The lists
that close next Monday will be the
lists used in any election taking place
beforo May of next year. Transfers
of voters' names can be made from
ono list to another at any time within thirty days of an election, but as
thirty days' notice of transfer bus to
bo given, it will be seen that transfers
must bo mode within the next few
weeks to be effective if the elections
take place in December next.
If the city team could not earn its
board two years ago,there is no reason
for believing that one could do bettor today. The proposed purchase
of one would only increase the city
payroll, and bring in hig feed bills.

true. Suecess invariably attends the
uso of Catarrhozono which has cured
catarrhal deafness of twenty-five vears
standing. Penetiating through the
passages of the ear, the soothing vapor of Catarrhozone relieves the in-
flamation, destroys the seeds of catarrh and thereby allows nature to re-
assist herself. Try Catarrhozone yourself, 23c and 81.00 sizes sold by all

When
You consider
that a poorly
printed job costs
just as much as
one that presents a neat and
tasty appearance, do you not
think that your
b* *•» ness demands the latter kind ?

Good Printing—the kind we do—is in itself
an advertisement, and a trial order will convince
you that our stock and workmanship are of the
best. Let us estimate on your order. We guarantee „ atisfaction.
Once in awhile the voters get care*

Even a man who is color blind
knows when he is feeling blue.
It is easier to acquire a reputation
for greatness than it is to keep it up.
A man isn't neccsssarily a millionaire because he has a million
air.
A farmer's idea of bad weather is
the kind that gots agiiinst his grain.
Many a man's good fortune is due
to the will power of a deceased relative.
After working hard to get money
a man has to work twice as hard to
keep it.
Someone wai.ts to know how to
remove paint. Sit down on it and
walk away.
A patent medicine testimonial
occasionally thrust greatness on n
small man.
It isn't always the woman with
the fairest face who has the sweetest
disposition.
Just so they don't steal our water
wagon we'll be happy. Think of its
usefulness!
Because a man can "skin" yon
is no reason why he should do it
but he generally does.

to pose as a pessimist.
Another Great Discovery
A well known gentleman in Black
Bay, Ontario, Mr. John Cjwan, has
discovered an absolute specific for
rheumatism, and writes: "I was affected with sciatica and chronic rheumatism which I contracted years ago.
The disease had a great hold on my
blood, and it was hard to make any
impression on it. Beading of Ferrozone I was convinoed of its merits and
It's certainly the best I have ever
tried. Why, it just drove away the
rheumatism!" Even stiffened old sufferers will experience quick results.
The reason is that Ferrozone acts
thru the blood and thereby destroys
the cause of the disease. Price 50c
per box at all dealers.
