Doyle   ullnM   Sullivan   Arrested   and  Committed for Trial.���������Several  mv tbe Murder.  Since the town of Kuskanook at the  tLe head of Kootenay lake, formerly  known as Goat River Landing was  started a couple of months ago, it has  been, what, to use a western phrase, is  called a "wide open" town. Up to last  Sunday night however no serious crimes  were committed. On that night a foul  murder was committed.  The steamer Nelson, which arrived on  Monday evening Lad on board the dead  body ofjDennis Connors, who the previous  night had been fatally shot by J. Doyle  alias J. Sullivan. Tbe facts of the case  as brought ont in evidence given at the  inquest held on Monday by Coroner Dr.  'Arthur and n jury composed of J. Ban-  nerman, Thus. Madden, H. Wright, F.  Goodwin, S. 3. Mighton and J. Hyde,  are briefly as follows: '  On Sunday evening a  party of men  consisting of Dennis Connors, Tom Smith,  Wm. Kyle and Alex. Clare from a Crow's  Nest  Puss  railway   construction camp  were spending the night in   the town  drinking and visiting the saloons.   During the evening they fell in with Doyle  with  whom  they   had   several  drinks.  About "11.80 Connors,  Kyle and Clare  were sitting in the Alexander hotel, when  Doyle came in and called them up to the  bar to have a drink.   Connors went up  to the bar saying " I'll have a drink with  you even if I don't like you." Doyle then  said "You can't get any the best of me,"  and walked ont without the driaks having been served.    Connors  then went  back and eat down.   About 15 minutes  later Doyle came to the hotel again and  on seeing Connors drew a revolver, and  walked np to within a few feet of him.  After  applying  a vile epithet be said  "Dig up or I'll shoot you."    Connors  with a smile enid " Fire away."   Doyle  immediately   fired, the bullet entering  Connors' left breast an inch above the  nipple.   After firing the fatal shot Doyle  coolly  put the revolver in bis pocket,  "walked out of the hotel and made his escape.   On seeing.Doyle draw his gun,  Ericson, the keeper of the hotel, at once  Bent Clare for the police and in about five  minutes after the shooting took place,  Constable Forbes, who was acting during  Constable Jnrvis' temporary absence on  special duty in Nelson, arrived on the  scene.   Connors never spoke nor moved  after being shot and died in a few minutes.   Constable Forbes nt once closed  the hotel and engaged as special constable T. W. Ryan, timekeeper on the  C.P.W. and placed bim in charge of the  (Hoi^'~wb11e^lJe>tStt^^t^Io^tfi^Tair  j to notify the police at Goat river crossing  of the murder.   A-thorough  search of  [the town was made for the murderer but  I without success, and on tbe arrival of  Lthe  steamer  Nelson on   Monday Con-  I stables Forbes and Ryan   brought the  j bodyto Nelson nnd notified the provin-  Icial police department of the occurrence.  [They also brought in Ericson and Kyle,  [who were iu the bar room at the time of  J the shooting and Tom Smith who was  (supposed to be a chum of Doyle but who  (swore that he had not seen  him since  11893, in Spokano, at which time they  J were  working together on   tho   Great  [Northern railway.  After the above facts had been brought  >nt the Coroner's Court adjourned until  [Wednesday afternoon to allow of a post-  [mortem being held.  When the   Court re-nssembled,  Dr.  lawkey, who had made the postmortem  examination, gave evidence as to the con-  iitioo of thebody and cause of death.  Trom external examination be found no  [marks of violence) except a bullet hole  pa the left breast about the size of a lead  pencil.   The doctor described the course  af the bullet through tbe. internal organs  arid identified the bullet produced as belong the one he had found in the body of  Connors.   Death had undoubtedly been  paused by the bullet.   He described the  3eceased as being a well developed man,  bbout  thirty years   of age, with   dark  brown hair, light brown moustache and  jlue eyes.   The jury-returned a verdict  In accordance with the above facts, that  lhe deceased Dennis Connors came to bis  Jeath from a bullet wound from a revolver in the hands of J. Doyle alias Sullivan.  Immediately upon receipt of the news  kf the murder Gold Commissioner Den-  tis issued notices offering a reward, of  1250 for the arrest of Doyle and on Tuesday  morning started for the  scene of  yiie murder.   M$n were at once despatched along the trails in pursuit of the fugi-  Rive.  DOYEiE CAPtDEEO.  Tuesday morning Constables   Aspdin  Lnd Livingstone Of the Northwest Mount  ed Tolice, wbo were stationed at Goat  river crossing aud who had just returned  from n patrol to Moyie lake were notified  of the crime and were on the lookout for  Doyle. Their quarters are close to. the  trail within a few yard3 of where the trail  to Port Hill; Idaho branches off. Towards evening they noticed a man answering to the description given them of  Doyle, coming along the trail with a pack  on his back. They stepped out and arrested him." The prisoner offered no resistance and was identified by a German  who had known him at Kuskanook and  by special Constable Miller. The prisoner was taken to Kuskanook and on Thursday morning was brought to Nelson on  ihe steamer and lodged m jail. The news  of the capture spread rapidly and when  tbe police arrived at the jail a large crowd  had assembled out of curiosity to see the  prisoner. The crowd however made no  demonstration. Doyle is a man about  six feet tall.light hair and mustache and  weighs about 175 pound?. ConnOrs is  said to have came from Connecticut.  PRELIMINARY TBIAL.  The prisoner was brought before Gold  Commissioner Dennis at the court room  on Friday at 11 o'clock for prelimin ary  trial, Macdonald & Johnston appearing  for the crown. The prisoner had no  counsel. The same witnesses were examined and the evidence given was  practically the same as that given at the  inquest.  The trial was adjourned until this forenoon to allow the court stenographer  time to transcribe his notes so that tbe  evidence might be read over to the prisoner.  This morning after the evidence was  read over, the prisoner was asked if he  bad anything to say and wy given the  usual caution. Doyle stood up in tbe  prisoner's box and said tbat his name  is Davis and that he had lived in the  west for 18 years. The shooting was  done in self defence as Connors had  threatened previously to shoot him and  when he stepped np to bim in tbe Alexandra hotel Connors got up and made  a motion as if he were going to draw a  revolver. He understood that Connors  bad n gun, and shot first.  Tbe prisoner was committed to stand  his trial nt the next assizes, which will  held in June next.  .   08E SHIPMENTS.  summary or Amount or Ore and Ufalte  exported from me Port or Nclaon.

The Vaunt Harmony of the Clly Council  Bllgbtly DlHturbed.-The Mayor and  . Aid. Hillyer Disagree.  The usual monotonous proceedings of  the city council were enlivened at the  session on Monday afternoon by a tilt  between the mayor and Aid. Hillyer,  which while furnishing amusement for  the audience did not add to the diguity  usually observed by city council boards.  After routine Aid. Hillyer moved  seconded by Whalley, a motion that tbe  motion for the suppression of gambling  passed at last regular meeting be rescinded and the chief of police be notified  accordingly. The mayor ruled the  motion out of order nnd appealed to the  council to support his ruling. The ball  was started by Aid. Hillyer stating that  discrimination was beiug exercised iu  enforcing the law, and he could prove  that tho mayor had told certain parties  that they could run a poker game so long  as tbey kept it behind closed doors, and  that another- member of the council had  told a keeper of a cigar store that the  resolution was not intended to affect  nickel in the slot machines played for  cigars only. Ha accused the mayor of  having inspired Aid. Teetzel's motion,  else why had he gone around on the  Saturday previous and ordered all  machines closed np.  TbeMayor indignantly denied having  inspired Aid. Teetzel's motion or having  ever heard of it before it was brought  np in open council. Aid. Hillyer's remarks were a reflection on the mayor's  honesty and in rebuttal be read a copy  of tbe letter be bad sent to tbe chief of  police, authorizing him to act in the  matter. He bad never rescinded tbe  order and he defied anyone to prove tbat  he had dene so.  Aid. Teetzel said that no other person  knew anything of tbe motiou. His intention was topntastop more .particularly to gambling in public plsoes where  drunken men were allowed to play and  lose their money.  Aid. Whalley said that the police might  bave personal spleen against some one  and rub it iu.  The mayor disclaimed any favoritism  in the matter and was sure that tbe  consensus of opinion of the business men  of the oity were with the authorities.  Aid. Hillyer���������"The mayor does not  back it up."  The Mayor���������"I have always held and I  say so opealy, here that it is no person's  business if people go behind closed doors  and play cards. It is public gambling  that I object to. Med will play poker  somewhere. Nickel in the slot machines  are an unmitigated fraud and they have  been ordered ont of almost every city in  Canada.  Aid. Hillyer protested against tbe  mayor running the council as be had  boasted at Kaslo of doing. The other  aldermen had not the backbone of an  oyster, but would go outside and kick  about what they did not like.  The Mayor��������� 'fl always fought you  openly and if you thought I wns not a  suitable mayor why did you not bring  out another candidate. You might not  have been in tbe council cither".  The unseemly scene was brought to a  close by the ruling of the chair being  sustained by a majority of one.  Accounts io the amount of about $750  were on recommendation of the finance  committee ordered to be paid, the principal of which were $160.06 for mayor's  salary for January and $182 Nelson  Electric Light Company's accouut.  A communication was received from  the Hall Mines Co. requesting permission  to connect with the7 city mains for a  supply of water for the smelter. A committee consisting of the mayor and the  chairman of tbe public works committee  was appointed to meet Mr. Croasdaile  and arrange the terms, etc.  The TribunePubli shing Co. wrote quoting a rate of 5 cents per line first insertion and 2 cents per line for each additional insertion for city advertising. The  letter was referred to the finance committee.  Aid. Teetzel moved, seconded by Aid.  Hillyer that tbe council advertise in the  Tribune for a collector and water commissioner, applications to be in by Feb  28, and successful applicant to give $5000  bonds.  Aid. Whalley���������"Why advertise in the  Tribune and not in the other city papers".  The Mayor���������"Because it is the official  paper of the council and we do not  believe in giviDg patronage to our enemies  and don't propose to start now".  Council adjourned.  8ka*W i* a Toujk Town.

No. All these people must #o  elsewhere for their noisy und improper  joys. Nelson will have none of thoni.  Now this is where virtue got its  deadly work in. Though uo onu  would have supposed it, some of these  virtuous proposals actually trod on the  corns of mouthers of the city council  itself. And then the row began.  Where it will end it is impossible Lo  say. The last episode in connection  with it is that the Mayor himself actually found one of these devilish engines of sin in a place of public resort  and the sight so horrified him that he  cast it forth into the street with his  own outraged hand, scattering its  nickels far and wide on the snow.  These were shortly afterwards carefully gathered up by a thrifty member  of the city's staff who would seem to  be keeping an eye open for the things  that come to honest people when city  councils fall out.  NELSON'S POSITION,  SATURDAY. FEB. 19. 18C8.  VICTI MS OF VIRTUE.  Brefc'Harte wrote a most amusing  little poem about "the row that broke  up. pur society upon the Stanislaus."  Would that he were here to hand down  to posterity the superlatively funny  freaks of our city council;' It is almost  beyond belief that any set of-men  could so allow their childish ignorance  to parade itself in public that thev become the laughing stock "of everyone.  It is true that all the members of the  council are not equally foolish, but  those more sensible ones have cast in  their lot with tbe rest and tbey cannot  complain If they are tarred with the  same brush that smudges the whole.  Only the other day, a few short  weeks ago,"these seven men, the Mayor  and his six lambs, the entire ticket,  got themselves elected all m-a bunch  to 4o whatever might seem good to  then* for twelve long weary months,  during which the ratepayers might  grin indeed, but, they would have' to  pay for the fun- Such a nice family  party the new council was, all bound  to their lender the Mayor, by natural  affection, confidence, respect and all  the other qualities that that noble person inspires in the breasts of such as  trust ill him. i Together they would  make Nelson a model town. Its drains,  ^|ights~^d1sewer8:should"=be-the--best  anywhere, its Mayor the most cxpem  siveandits funds of the straightest.  This hist noble aspiration got nearly  tripped up a week ago owing to the'  seductions of poker, but then if you  have virtue enough for seven city fathers you can hardly expect to have any  over for their servitors.  This same virtue seems to be the  rock upon which pur unhappy council  has split. Virtue it would seem is like  gin, not good if taken in large doses by  persona unaccustomed to it. Like the  gin '* habit" too, it seizes its victims  hy stealth. A little dose at first which  does no hawq soon leads on to larger  ones until the once noble fabric of even  a self elected city council falls all to  hits and;iU members begin to heave  "chunks..iq������f old, red. sandstone" at  each other until even.'a- callous public  weeps tojseejthe ruin, ofjso.promising a  society.      .......      *-  It was just asimpie nickle that started all this riot and ruin. Just a little  nickle in the slot. The bosoms of the  fathers who sit in solemn conclave up  there in :the little stone "jug" were  torn with femoi-se to see their unprotected constituents succumbing so  easily to this pernicious and seductive  form of gambling." 'Possibly there may  be other kinds of" play more ruinous,  but ii is hot to be supposed that the  men who set themselves up as fit and  proper persons to go vein Nel son know  anything about them. How should  they. It would probably take a strong  man to stand up long enough to lose  ten dollars at one of these machines,  but still the sight of them was shocking to our simple Mayor and his. sis  weak lambs or you would have thought  it might be. But it wasn't. When  once the subject was broached, these  same lambs or some Of tbieffl seemed  quite well acquainted with all sorts of  horrors, from saloons with doors open  on Sunday to the painted beauties of  the east, and nothing would do "but  they must allgo; lock, stock and barrel.  Nelson must become a model town  whose calm repose is quite unbroken  gave by the tinkle ot its church   hells  one in peril on the deep and there are  many also who have already suffered  at the bands of the cruel sea. Every  attenton and kindness is sure to he  shown by the Spanish authorities at  Havanna, both naval and civil, to the  survivors and it may be hoped that  these good offices may help to banish  the angry feeling which has grown up  between the two nations, not spontaneously, but fostered by irresponsible  journalists and hair brained pol iticians.  ruoFKSSiovtx <:.ut������a.

C. <������������  It is probably owing to the fact that  things have mostly come our way of  their own accord that has kept Nelson  out of the great hurly-burly of self advertisers.   She has gone on and prospered mightly out of her own intrinsic  wealth,   But if she wants to hold her  place she must do as others do.    People at a distance,  at the coast or in  eastern Canada, seldom hear of Nelson.  It is Rossland,   llo3sland,   Rossland,  morning, noon and night.   Rossland  had the luck to attract the attention  of the correspondent of a Toronto paper, who combined his literary duties  with those of a share dealer and company promoter.   In the latter he was  considerably aided by the former,   He  boomed Rossland for all (and perhaps  more than) she was worth.   It is to be  hoped that his customers in the east  still find their investments as rosy as  they   were  painted;     Mr.   Dewdney  when Lieut. Governor patronized Rossland a good deal and was feted at the  Allan   house,  a distinguished honor,  much appreciated apparently by Lieut.  Governors on the hunt for cash.   Mr.  Mcintosh has just been similarly treated.   This is by the way.   But Rossland  has succeeded in getting herself advertised A-ery well indeg*:^  Now we do not for a moment want  to disparage Rossland, we only Want  to assert that there is another town  called Nelson which happens to be the  capital of Kootenay and which does  more business than any other town on  the mainland of British Columbia not  even excepting Vancouver. Thin is  not the kind of business talked of to  newspaper reporters by Horne Paynes  and Mclntoshes and promoters of Yankee mining companies, but it is the  business which finds its expression in  the cold cash paid to Her Majesty's  customs and to the columns of statistics collected by the government.  The time has now arrived when it  becomes necessary that these things  should be known, and it is satisfactory  to' note that oiir new Board of Trade,  with its very able and energetic secretary is taki ng measures to let Nelson's  true positiou he known far and wide.  Just on the eve of a general election  the-government1'may lie inclined to  lend too willing nn eav to the bland-  ishmentsof certain politician!, whoso interests pull in other direction, if their  attention is allowed to wander from  the right path.  The Rossland Miner, which by the  way still calls itself The Miner, a title  to which it has no right, advocates the  partition of West Kootenay into four  electoral divisions under the next redistribution bill. There is nothing unreasonable about this except that it  seems a pity to ask for too much. The  paper claims that there will be found  to be 1500 voters in the Trail creek district. This might be so if aliens bad  voles, but we. doubt much if 1500 British votes can be found iu Trail Creek.  If tbeir other computations are founded on similar theories tbey Avill scarcely be able to prove their ease and it  would be well to make a united effort  toget one more member and by pulling  all together we might get him.  The authorities are to he congratulated on the speedy capture of the man  who is alleged to have committed the  cowardly murder at Kuskanook. In  the ordinary course of events he cannot come up for trial until the next assizes which may not be held until  June. In view of the necessity of enforcing law and order in the railway  camps along tbe line of the Crow's  Nest Pass railway and to keep up the  reputation of British justice, it would  1)0 well to appoint a special assize to  try thecase.so tbat if guilty the culprit  may meet his doom as quickly a? possible.  1-*   M.

When the appointed  time lU'Luvcd, there was no Judge. An  enquiry at.'his house elicited the in*  formation that he had gone away to  look at some claims.
