GOLD-BLOODED RUBBER  Man  A Kamloops Indian Shot a While  Without Provocation  Kamloops, April 17.~(Spee;ial)���������  This cily was thrown iuto a turmoil of  excitement���������on ���������Saturdayi-'evening,  shortly before 7 o'clock, whon a most  cold-blooded anil unprovoked murder  was committed by an Indian mimed  Casimar, Philip Walker, a young mnn,  being the victim.  Walker died nt the hospital about  an hour after he had been shot. Hi*  was splitting wood in his yard when  the Indian ciimo up behind him and  fired two rifle shots nt him. One  bullet entered tho left shouldpr and  the. other passed ' through Walker's  liver nml lungs. Both bullets passed  right through his body.      '" "  walker's  statement ,  Walker    wns   conscious   when   removed to the hospital and he made a  statement, to the following effect:  He saw Cusiinnr coining up from the  river with a rifle in his hands and  asked him whnt he was after. Casimar  said that he was going to shoot geese  Walker then went on with his chopping, his hack being turned to the  Indian. Almost immediately after, he  was shot down. Walker said that he  kne.v the Indian, but had never hnd  any trouble with him.  Up to the last advices the Indian is  still at large.  The Opening Up of the Lardeau and  Big Bend Districts by Branch Lines is  in the Top Row of the Company's  Projects���������The Kettle River, Road and  the Smelting Industry ol Kootsnay.  The presence of Mr. G. McL. Brown,  Executive Agent C.P.R., in town, led  a representative of this paper to interview him on the railway situation in  British Columbia, which is becoming  quite interesting. He was not at  liberty to discuss the plans of the  company, but in a general way was  permitted to speak' of matters of interest to the public. The company's  policy had always heen and-was today  one of development, lt had been  hampered at the outset in currying  out many of its prospects as had been  thc case with every ��������� enterprise requiring large capital, but now that  money was easier and good times  come again, the company would push  ahead with its work of development.  The advancement of the interests ol  every commercial, agricultural and  mining section was carefully considered in the programme for the near  future.  He thought that Revelstoke was to  be congratulated on its geographical  position as the entrepot of the great  mining country tp the south. The  city's future prosperi'ay.in-his .opinion  was assured with the opening" np of  eoinmuiiicat'mii with the Lareleau,  Duncan, the Big Bt������nd nnd other sections directly tributary to Revelstoke;  the establishment of a large smelter in  the neighborhood would appear to be  a niu oral sequence. When asked  concerning the Kettle River Line for  which the Grand Forks people, ,\vere  clamoring, he said that he hatl' not  anticipated lhe same interest in the  question ttt Revelsloke .is fuithei*  s-otiih. The question in reality was  om* of Canadian interest generally and  British Columbia in particular against  those of the. United Stales, 'rather  than a fight between the conflicting  interests of two railway syetems.  To thoroughly understand the matter you must;, be aware that the proposed Kettle river line has its eastern  TJefminus atr'Marctis-oi;v-'^Northport7  Wash., and its western American  terminus at Republic, Wash. It is  proposed, should a Canadian charter  il  It Is All Right  Express Agent Allen took the  trouble to enquire along the line from  his colleagues what kind of a show the  Lyceum company are putting on with  the result that they all report it a  fl'-st-clnss show.

An Important Change  A. Macdonald & Vo. have decided tn  discontinue their business at RevclJ  stoke anil IS. Appleton ia negotiating  with the A. Macdonald Co. at Winnipeg for the purchase   of  their stock  be obtained, to follow the valley e>f  the Kettle river through British  Columbia, crossing and re-crossing  the international boundary several  times and being in all under 21) miles  in British Columbia. At Ottawa last  year Mr. Corbin contended that tlie  company's opposition to''the scheme  wns solely with n view to stifling competition. This was a ridiculous contention, and carried no weight, by  renson of the fact that it was recognized that a railway of under 20 miles  nnd crossing and renossing the  boundary, could not prove a factor in  the regulation of rates in southern  British Columbia, and furthermore, if  it eoulel be a factor, it was unnecessary  as the Dominion government had  control of C.P.R. rates to and from all  C.P.R. lines in British Columbia south  of its main line. The C.P.R. contenderl  that the American lines should not be  permitted until British Columbia  interior towns and smelters are  established and brought into close  relation with the provincial, agricultural and commercial centres. As fat-  as Revelstoke is concerned I cannot  but sec that the only effect the building of this line from the south would be  to divert' a certain portion of the  traffic in that direction and necessarily  lessen the importance of Revelstoke as  one of the railway centres of the province. Naturally there were a number  of people who sympathised with the  local cry for more railways, hut, in  doing so, they were not always wise,  as oftener than not the cry was  prompted by some fancied local advantage, as is the case of the aelveicacy  in senile quarters of the proposed  Kettle River line. The fancied immediate local advantages to be gained  are,thought to be of chief importance*.  view, and fail to realize the ultimate  loss to themselves ii) thc construction  American railways into British Columbia. The treatment of Canadian  ores in Canada is n principle we should  all fat rive for, and to see it carried out,  the American Smelting Trust eif $65,-  000,(100 must be successfully fought.  This trust would smash any small  smelting enterprise as was done in the  case of the Pilot Bay, and the large,  smelting enterprises necessary to the  low treatment of Boundary ores will  not be established unless those who  are piepared to put their money are  assured of the output, the high grade  with the lower grade ores. ��������� It is the  avowed intention of this trust to treat  British Colombia ores and will do so  unless Camilla blocks its efforts. The  British Columbia people cannot blame  the people of Washington for endeavoring to enrich themselves, but if they  permit it at their own expense, the  more fools the people of British  Columbia.  We know that the American imports (agricultural and merchandise)  during last year into the port of  Reis-.land "amounted to ��������� $417,000. to  Nelson $518,000, and Kaslo $218,000.  We know that in the treatment of  44,000 tons of Rossland ore last year as  against - $68,000 tons to Northport,  Wash,, the Trail smelter disbursed in  British Columbia over one million  dollars. .       -  -  Imagine how much all classes in the  province would have benefitted had  the entire mineral output of West  Kootenay been treated in the province*.  If the smelters are not established  (as tlfey cannot be if the Kettle river  lino is, constructed) and the Kettle  river line built, the question woultl  resolve itself into a fight, between tne  C.P.R. and American lines for the  haulage of the ores of such mines as  woulel staud transportation.  - Boundary is essentially a low' grade  country and without, smelters, which  cannot come if the output" is divided."  only the rich niines would be opened  up and the low grade bodies in which  lhe country abounds and in the development is to.be found the great wealth  of the province would remain  dormant.  You speak of the C.P.R. and the  American lines fighting for the rich  ore. - If the'imelters are built and the  Kettle river charter riot " granted,  woultl not the C..P. R. loie considerably on account of the loss of the  haul lo American smelters���������this would  appear so���������and consequently itis not  to the interest of the C.P.R. to see  sme-lters established   in   B.C.  Yes, said Mr. Brown, with the  construction of home smelters the  company would lose the long haul on a  certain amount of the ore now taken  to-Americairsmeltersrbut-for this-loss  woulel be more than compensated by  the increased tonnage locally to the  B. C. smelters, and by lhe increased  traffic consequent upon the increased  market for British Columbia agricultural products and merchandise, a  large proportion of which has come in  from the United States.* To realize  the force of this one has only to pick  up any Washington paper. They  rejoice over the benefits commercially  they of Washington have received by  being able tolrade with British Columbia in the past anel are jubilant over  the prospect of very much increased  trade in farm produce aud merchandise (.'onseiiupnt upon the construction  of the Kettle river line.  BOARD OF TRADE  Successful   Quarterly  General   Meeting  Held Last Night  There was a fair attendance ot  members of the board of trade at the  quarterly geuei.il meeting held last,  night in thc board room in the govei-.  nment buildings. H. A. Brown, president, was in the chair.  A communication from the Trades  and Labor Council was read urging  the board to press for the establish-,  ment of a central post office. The.  secretary was instructed to reply stat-,"  ing that the ("uestiem had already been,  taken up at a meeting on Nov. 17th-  last, with the result that the present  uri-mgernent was decided to be most  convenient for errrybody, and that- *  thi������ decision was again sustained.  The mutter of turning the weekly,  council meeting into a a general board\  meeting, as is done with great success  in Nelson, were referred to the executive committee, as the change would;..  require a new bylaw anel a special':  meeting.  The executive committee were em--  powered! ter go into the i|tiestion of"  ways and means for a mineral exhibited tbe ores of the district*, which woulit*  be available for the Paris Exposition  of 1000 and other occasions, on which-  it may he deemed advisable to make-  an exhibit.  The invitation of the Rossland board ...  of trade to send delegates to a conven-^  tion of boards to discuss subject.-* of *  general interest was referred to the-  exeeiilive".

They have'20 feet of an  open cut and when T. Downing left on  the Srd had driven about 10 or 12 feet  of a tunnel. They are following the  lead in. They have 30 inches of soliel  iron ore with carbonates and float  galena above. They expect to strike  solid ore when they get iu further.  Inquiries from San Francisco  To show how fast and far the news  of the placer strike on Swift Current  creek in the Canoe river distiict has  traveled ."and what possibilities there  are in it if the next batch of reports  from the spot is favorable, the Herald has alreittly received . inquiries  from San Francisco about the find.  THE EICHTJPUR.LAW  The Semlin   Government   Have   Craw--..  fished to the Capitalists  - -The-Nelson-Tribune, .a  supporter .of"  r -- -  *  the'present provincial govern ment,has.  the following'remarks on the eight-  hour law in its recent issue:  According to a special telegram to,  the Tribune from Victoria, the minister ���������  of mines has declared that it is not.  likely that the eight hour law will  be  enforced.   This is a hint to the miners-  that they need not look to the Semlin-  government for favors;   lhat, for the."  present, the Semlin government will  heed the advice of the mine owners, a. ���������  class    that   used   all   their   influence  against them at the polls.     But that-'  is neither here or there.   If the eight  '  hour law  was  passed  without   being*,/  eluly considered by the government,'."'  then the government is blameable.*  If"  it   was   passed' to satisfy   the   labor- '  element, then in all fairness, it should.  have been given a trial.    Workingmen  la bor iineieir~tlTe~t)elief _llia t~th"ey~a������ e~~i*  discriniinated  against by legislation;.  that whenever a law is  passed,  which  they believe to be in their interest,  it  is invariably fought by tlitl capitalistic  element,  and too often  rendered ill-  operative because the government lhat  passed it is not in sympathy wilh  its- ���������  purpose.     On the other hand, no matter what legislation  is passed in the  interest   of capital,   it   is   invariably  strictly   enforced."    Were   the   eight  hour law one making it an  illegal act  to work men for less than  ten  hours  underground  in   a   mine,   would   its-  operation be suspended because half a  dozen  workingmen   by   petition   and.  interview objected to it?    Not much 1  The Semlin government on this quce-  tiem   have  shown   themselves   to   he.  weaklings.  Silver Queen  Hon. G. E. Foster nnd Senator Mac-  mill.in have put through a deal hy  which they have acquired full control  of the Silver Queen, a very promising  property, nine miles up Cariboo creek  from the mouth at Cariboo City.  An Officer for Tete Jaune Cache  Gulden Ern: R.A. Kimpton returned  from the coast on Saturday.   While ut  Victoria he saw the minister of niines.  and that gentleman told him  it was-.  proposed   to send nn  officer to Tete  Jaune  Cache as soon  as  possible   to-  lnok after the mining records, arrange  lay overs, administer justice, etc.   The-  proposition at the present time ii to  work the district ns a special district  in much thc same way ns Omenica and  as Golden is the nearest central point  the government administration will bo  carried on through here.  This is No "Hummers'" Paradise  Sandy McRae's hotel wns plumb full  and turning away guests on Monday  night. Complaints are loud on all  sides of the great prevalence ol stiffs  in town. It is getting aiiout time that  the stipendiary mustered up enough  backbone to give a few sentences  severe enough lo make this class of  tourist avoid the town altogether.

ELECTING A  PGPE
ln  view*  of the late  grave     reports
regarding  ihe      health      of Pone  Leo
Kill and the certainly of a not far off
conclave  oi  cardinals,  it will   . bo  of
interest to  repeat     hero  the     modus
operandi used in tho election ot a new
pope.     "When a pope dies lho cardinal-
camerlc-ngo, ov chamberlain announces
to  the  people oC the court, lhat     his
holiness is dead; and lhen breaks wilh

are  temporarily  administered , by  the
eiean o�� the Sacred College, the senior
cardinal priest 'and ihe ig-nlor cardinal
deacon;   they cause nonce  io  bo sent
to all cardinals outside of Home.   The
law is that on  iho 10th  day aftor tho
cay on which the pop*;     dies,  a conclave ot* cardinals shall choose one of
iheir number to be pope.     It was ihe
custom for a long timo, and especially
because of the temporal power ot* tho
pope,   for  France,

tellers and the ballots, after prayer,
are dropped into a case. There are
govern! rules that govern tho processes
of classification and counting, anel a
two-thirds vote is necessary to a
choice. The formalities of announcement in the college of cardinals aro
very impressive, after which, from tho
bulcor.y. announcement is made lo the
people by the senior cardinal deacon,
generally in these words: "I announce io you that *we have as* pop'5

Dear Sir: A few days ago I had

A well known young man has been
brought before the magistrate here
charged wilh stealing a sun; of money
from one; or the soiled doves ot our
lown, the case being adjourned pending the arrival o�� counsel.
Columbia River Navigation companv have secured a new- steamer tor

COMPLICATIONS   WITH   GER-  ' "MANY -  Washington, April 13.���������Thei news of  the disastrous fighting at Samoa has  been received here with fee'ings approaching dismay. ; The secret _ry of  the German embassy called early in  the day. upon Secretary Hay.   Neither  ; officials would disclose anything: as lo  lbe nature of the meeting that took  place. The arrest "and detention by  tbe British naval. official of a German subject is one of the most dangerous features of the- controversy. It  l������ said that the consuls of the three  powers stationed  at.Apia" claim extra  ��������� territorial jurisdiction involving the  right to try subjects of the*i- re-  npective countries .for any" allege-1  offence committed. Under this practice the German consul. Mr. Rose, m iy  demand the surrender", of the German  KUbject.

Tho title "Inter-  Western Pacific" was probably suggested by the fact that " Calgary is  c-ntrally situated between the respective headquarters of the "Western" .Exhibition Association,'of Winnipeg, and the "Pacific" Exhibition Association at the coast. - The proposed  absorption of up-country fairs by the  company has not been regarded wit!)  nuite so favorable an eye as was anticipated, though there is little doubt  but what breeders from a distance, if  thoy havo anything specially worthy  of exhibition, will not onlv attend  tHeir own local shows but. patronize  the big Central Fair at Calgary  besides. The gaining of prizes in tho  live stock world . is^regarded by  breeders in ~ all countries as of tin.  highest' importance, in respect ' of  giving the outside world and possible  cm-chasers a correct line on the qual-  It-i- of their animals, but the im-  pr.rtance is entirely relative lo the  ^landing of the fairs at- which theso  r-i'izes have been gained. For instance, a Clyde stallion that has won  even a third prize at the Royal Agricultural Show in England would by  horsemen be regarded with more  Interest than one whicli had gained a  fiist at Winnipeg; and an* honorably  mentioned-animal "at Winnipeg would  carry "more weight possibly than one  that had swept everything before It  at Wetaskiwin. Calgary from its  ���������roographical position and its situation  on the main line should be the ceiu  tral and converging point for the ex-  'lilhition of all that is best in the North  West Territories, so that visitors and  strangers may without discomfort  come and viow our agricultural, live  'Steele and^.mineral resources without  "I.Evins "to go skirmishing airover^tlie  country looking for them.  The objects for which incorporation  is sought are tho promotion of industries, arts and sciences generally, and  tho exhibition of everything in lho  animal, vegetable and .mineral kingdom that is to be founel In these vast  domains. It is properly thought that  the resources of this- country need  more aderiuato representation than  they have hitherto had. Under tlio  capable guidance of Messrs. Cross,  llone, Taylor, Toole, A. L. Cameron,  Walker, Rhodes, Sutherland, Van  Wart, Mackie, Smart, " Robinson',  Wolley-Dod.
