FRIDAY, MARCH 1, 1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  THE KERR  INVESTIGATION  POLIOS    COMMISSIONERS    HEAfi  EVIDENCE   ON   THE CASE.  Many Witnesses Testify to the Efficiency of.the,Deposed Officer���A'  Continuance Until Today.  If  The police commissioners' enquiry  which, was opened, in the police  ���< court .yesterday, afternoon to ascertain the efficiency of police constable Kerr, and'also the efficiency  of the police department, drew a  crowded house. All the commissioners were present, and the witnesses one after another were called  and invited to tell what they knew  of constable Kerr or ,any other  member of the force, and to supplement this with their personal'opinion as to the relative efficiency of  Kerr and the other members of the  police department.  From the evidence submitted it  was brought out that a.general impression, .existed   that    constable  Kerr was dismissed from the force  in order,to appease the wrath of P.  J. Russell of the Athabasca'saloon,  who wa? alleged to have.,had some  "words with Kerr,over.the running.  _ of a roulette wheel^ , In,' every jjase,  however,, the source   of these re-  . ports'was traced-to .Kerr himself,,  ' and as he has. not given,any evidence, and ~ no 'attempt has been  made ��� as- yet^to'-meet' the general  report, the case stands there. *'  "~ <  "The   inquiry  is to ;be 'resumed  today, - when;'itvis;*Jthought   that  some light <will-be thrown upon the  * charges against JKerr,- upon ''which  ' the commissioners claim his suspension  was  based,.and .until  this .is  done comment upon  the.proceedings would,be'premature.;!5 -,>�� 77L^ ,  -r'~Jame's Eawrericeythe first witness '  called, did not-materially assist tlie  commissioners, in their.inquest.   He  signed the document withbutreading  its preamble; did" not know, Kerr,  and had no charges to make against  the commissioners. ���*   . w.  Fred Irvine'improved upon this.  He had no charges,to make against  the commissioners or the police officials, but he bad known,Kerr for a  couple of years, and in his opinion  he was just as good a man as there  was upon the force. - "��� " ''; '  Jacob'Dover's ,evidence was practically the same as that .of ���** Fred  Irvine.       ''. -   ���  J. Laing, Stocks testified that he  had kuown Kerr for some time and  was satisfied that 'he was a trust-  _worthy_man._.He_knew,_further-  more, that he had literally carried  put instructions which he. had received from the late mayor, even to  the extent of clashing with the  chief of police. The witness had  heard such statements and asked  Kerr to verify them, which he had  done. ' It was also reported that  while Kerr was performing police  duty iu connection with the Athabasca saloon he had been threatened that he would lose his job.  The witness expressed 'his- own  opinion upon this by saying that if  au officer was dismissed for fully  discharging his 'duty it was time  something was "done.  A. J. Marks testified that he gave  the police officers close attention,  and from his own observations he  considered Kerr a good man. His  objection to the action of the commissioners was that an experienced  man in Kerr had been dismissed,  and that an inexperienced man had  been appointed in his place.  Alderman Irving added his  tribute to the reputation of constable Kerr for ability and trustworthiness. He had known him  for two years.  E. E. Phair confessed that he  was iu the same boat as James  Lawrence in that ho did not know  Kerr, had never read the petition  which ho signed, and had nothing  against the commissioners or police  officers.  Alderman Paterson'sacquaintance  with' constable Kerr established his  conviction that Kerr was a trustworthy policeman. The only thing  he had against the. commissioners  was their dismissal of a man who  had some experience and the  appointment of a man who had  none.  J. A. Kirkpatrick and C. Morrison  were the next two .witnesses, but  their evidence did not disclose anything  more  startling   than   that  thoy knew Kerr and considered, him  a good police officer.  J. II. Matheson testified, that  Kerr was a man who could be  depended upon to do his-duty." He  was never to be found, on the street  corners talking municipal politics.  W. F. Teetzel said he had known  Kerr for two years, and always  understood that he - was a * good  police officer. He did not know  any better man on the force.  In reply - to" commissioner Cameron, as to what' the object of the  business men's document .was, Mr.  Teetzel replied: ""It is generally  understood that Kerr was dis-  cl��v3ed because'he was attempting  ^eS^gyg||lnr-Set out  what you ufii '  Mr. Teetzel���I understand that  because Kerr had informed or made  some complaint that P. J. Russell  was running a roulette wheel that  Russell threatened' to see. that he  was discharged and forced to walk  out of town; and a few days afterwards the man was discharged.  Commissioner Fletcher���You do  not know of course whether that  matter came up before the board,  or that I issued the instructions in  the Russell case and that Kerr had  nothing to do with it.  4 Miv Teetzel-^I 'have given you.  Mr. Kerr's statement of the* case!/  and the general impression is  that  he was discharged because-he tried  to do his duty/  I do not attempt  to. say ..whether the statement is  correct or not." -7" ' ^ -"l    "  E.v C. Traves said he had known  Kefrfor about three years and he  did.;not tthink^ there/was., a" better^  man ��riri* the .force: "'He ^explained  that he had signed the' petition'be^  cause he did not consider that ^ the  commissioners   had.given Kerr//W  square deal. . ,He ^understood "that/  Kerr���was"dischaVged^fo*r trying'to,  do his. duty in the-.matter ,of .the  roulette   wheel in  the Athabasca  saloon, and that Russell had threatened to have Kerr discharged.

Commissioner Selous���Who gave  you this information? ���  , Mr. Traves���;The .most of my information came from, Kerr himself.  J. L. Stocks was recalled at the  request "of commissioner Selous,  who desired him to state,where his  information came from.  Mr.'Stocks replied that the infoi'r  mation in the first place came from  F. L. Irwin and dtliers, and that^be-  _fore^signing- the -petition���he^had-  sent for Kerr and cross-questioned  him.     The   statement Kerr made  upon the Russell 'matter was that  he heard* the roulette, wheel running in the' Athabasca saloon, the  running of which had  been condemned by the city'authorities. He  took steps' to gain access and then  saw that the wheel was running.  Two days after. P. J. Russell asked  him to step aside as he wanted to  speak'to him. _ Russell- then 'asked  him' if,/he"had reported that the  wheel was running, to which Kerr  replied that he had.    Russell  then  threatened that he would have him  fired.   The witness added his-own'  comment   that   wheu   the   thing  happened    that    Russell    threatened    he    would    accomplish    it  looked    bad.     .The   second   matter    to . which    witness    Stocks  referred in his first examination related,'to   the time when constable  Kerr   received    instructions   from  mayor Houston tp run certain undesirable" parasites  out   of  town.  Constable Kerr, acting on these instructions, ordered a certain man  out  of  town and two days later  he learned that the chief of police  had waived the instructions which  constable. Kerr had received .from,  the   mayor and   allowed the   man  ordered out by Kerr, to remain in  town.  .Charles G. ,Hyslop, who at one  time was employed by the chief as  a special, was then called and  turned over to Kerr for examination. - In answer to some questions  he replied that from association  with Kerr on ���'police work he regarded him as an efficient police  officer who had shown good judgment in many matters.'  Chief Jarvis then examined Hys-  lop upon the McAllister case, in  which a man by the name of McAllister had threatened to shoot Hys-  RECRUITS  LEAVE  NELSON  CONSTABULARY VOLUNTEERS EN  _ -ROUTE.

When American "office furniture  was first introduced into England,  it went over finished ready for sale  arid packed in cases. Shipping  tonnage being- estiinated by measurement, and riot'by weight,'"it is  infinitelyjjieaper to' iniport- wood_^_  than liollow cabinet ware. A roll--  top desk of average size would  measure, when packed for' shipment, about a ton and a half, but a  ton and a half of solid wood would  make a lot of desks.  At the present time furniture  from the United States is imported  in pieces, which are put together  and polished in Enland. Tbis arises  out of the competition, between  importers who have sought to economise on freight charges and damage  on transit, the latter being .a considerable item. But even the handiwork done in England costs considerably more' than it costs wheu  performed in the American factories, where the men's weekly earnings are at least 50 and in many 100  per cent higher than in England.  \ -ijf  AH  MS [  ,' A"  : &_\  Gives the Reason.

TnE meeting of the Associated  Boards of Trade at Greenwood did  not materialize yesterday, but it is  expected that the meetiug;w,ill' convene today.   There's every reason  to believe- that >< strong pressure is  ' being brought by the Crow's Nest  Coal Company upon many of the,  delegates to. favor-the-Hill charter,  but it is doubtful whether   such  efforts will) succeed. ��� Much depends  upon the .delegates themselves,, and  whether their bands are ^fed,. bj^  snap resolutions suckaa marked theT  recent meeting cf the Nelson BckubJh  People who refer to East Kootenay as oue gigautic coal field are  no more at fault, nor no nearer correct, than the people who refer to  the great mountain ranges of southern Kootenay as veritable storehouses of gold, silver and copper.  Coal lias been opened up-at Fernie,  in East Kootenay, and gold, silver  and copper havo been found in  most of. the mountains and along  most of the. creeks in southern  Kootenay, but no sane person will  say such- conditions warrant the  assumption that a - person could  wander into East Kootenay-and secure a coal mine, or that, he could  climb a.hill iu West Kootenay-and  8trike���a treasure-house of gold, silver or copper. There > is an extravagance about such talk  as this which can best be appreciated by people who reside in the  vicinity of spots alleged ��� to be >so  well favored by.nature. If East  Kootenay "has so many-valuable  coal measures as the advocates of  James J. Hill make out, why does  Mr. Hill single out for his prey the  only measures which have, been  opened up,, and. upon which the  smelting industry of the province  at present depends?' Why/ is be  anxious to-, pay, a, fancy price for  yCrow.'s Nest-stock if ��� there,,are so  many other good.coal things in East  Kootenay tto-be had for-the taking?  -< The, action of > the police commissioners tin courting.the-fullestin-  quiry into' the'matters* connected  ;withthe dismissal of .police .consta-  ble Kerr is to be commended.

I lop and bad been flourishing.a revolver. Hyslop's version was that  the threat was first mado iu tho  Bodega saloon, but that not wishing to create a row in the saloon he  had consulted Kerr, who was a  friend of McAllister, in^the hope of  coaxing him out. In this he succeeded, and Kerr walked with McAllister as far as the Queen's hotel.  Tlie two men entered the hotel and  came out again, upon which McAllister flashed the. revolver in Kerr's  face and repeated his threat against  Hyslop, and as the two came by  Hyslop the latter sprang out and  made the arrest.  Commissioner Fletcher.asked if it  was not Kerr's duty to arrest the  man, and in reply to a further  question Hyslop said had he been  in Kerr's place he would have taken  the revolver away* from McAllister.  The chief then questioned Hyslop  about some mysterious movements  of a couple of men who were  moving some coal in a sleigh, but  made nothing out of it.  W. W. Beer, another of the  signers of the petition, was then  called. He admitted that he did  not know Kerr, neither did he  know anything about the police  commissioners or police force.  Alderman Gillett testified that he  had known - Kerr - for three years  and that he considered him as good  as any man on the force. The only  charge he could make against the  commissioners was , that Kerr��had  been dismissed without any reasons  being - given. He > had asked the  chief whether Kerr was dismissed,  but the chief replied - that he was  not prepared to tell him, but that  an investigation would bring the  matter out.

GUARANTEED FOR THREE YEARS  terest  which will answer the purposes of  tlie inquiring mind is> embraced in  the annual report of the department of public works.  The birth of railways in Canada  goes back to the year 1835; when  rails were laid between .Laprairie  and St. John's, Quebec, the road be--  ing completed and opened in July,  1830. /The mileage then in.'operation was 16 miles, aud it remained  in that  condition until  the year  1847, when it was .increased to 54  miles. '.Year,by 'ye&v,} however, by  the enterprise of the people bf Canada, largely helped by the subsidies  of the various  governments, this  mileage increased rapidly until, in  the year 1899 the number of miles  of railway in operation- amounted  to 17,250, that of the-tracks, laid  being 17,358, and-that of the roads  in course of construction  799. miles,  or a gross total of 18,157 miles. The  quantity of   rolling stock   on   all  those railways comprised, on the  30th of June, 1899, 70,855 carriages  of various kinds, including engines,  sleeping and palace cars,' first and  second class, box, coal, tool cars, etc.  Of these railways, that having  the    greatest    Canadian   mileage  under its control is the Canadian  Pacific,   operating   6683   miles of  track, of w hich 4590 are owned by  the company, and 2093 are made up  of leased lines. Next in order comes  the Grand  Trunk system,  with a  total of 3162  miles, and  the Canadian government railway system,  embracing    1510 miles,   while the  balance of th e 5895;miles As divided  between about' 102'--railways"'arid  their, branches, ������among; which are  the Manitoba & Northwestern, the  Northern Pacific and Manitoba, the  .Canada    Southern,"  .the .Canada  Atlantic, the, Ottawa, Arnpripjr and  Parry Sound,   the Kingston   aiid  Pembroke; the Great Northern,, the  . ;:?'/Salisbury May,Retire.T ��, "  Everything', points to ,the.TearIy  retirement of lord Salisbury from  the-premiership in favor of the duke  of-.Devonshire, "and among those  who are in a position.to know-it is  asserted that this-change-will take  place,in- JuneSutythe very."'latest,  and t possibly ��� much , earlier.   Kin g  Edward has never, been much in  sympathy .with lord'Salisbury, "and  was far more intimate and at home  ' with Mr. Gladstone.- He is on terms  of great intimacy with-the-duke of  Devonshire, ancf since his accession  has been consulting the, duke about  everything,. turning   to < him  foi*  advice rather than "to lord Salisbury.  How close are the:relations between  the v duke . and,   his r sovereign,, is  demonstrated by the - fact that--the  former is to take charge of. all his  majesty's race horses forrthe.. ensuing season.        -   l rS>~~   ,S "' *iy  The appointment'of the duke as  premier will meet with general approval.   There,is no "statesman who  enjoys to a higher-degree* the'confidence aud <goocTwill of his countrymen than this head of the illustrious house-of Cavendish, who is  looked upon by the English people  as a safe man in every sense of the  word*, True,. he ^ is * a Whig and a  Liberal-lhiionistr ' But his( liberalism is so strongly'imbued'with'conservatism that not,even" the most  .rabid Tory would refuse to serve  under his orders. ^His wife is the  widow Of the;seventh duke"of Manchester, grandmother.^therefore, of-  the present duke, and is one of the  most brilliant and clever women in  the United Kingdom, having' been  the acknowledged leader of society.  - A Great Skater.  ��� Princess Frederick'Leopold; sister  of the ��� kaiserin, whose husband is  so far the only Prussian" prince of  -the'1 blood   who   has   visited  the  United   States,-" has   just1  accomplished a feat on the .ice which has  attracted   much   attention.      She  skated all the way from Potsdam  to Brandenburg, eighteen.miles, returning .in the 'same manner'after  an hour's"rest. 'The princess is passionately fond of skating, and three  years ago almost lost her life.   She  and. one of - her I ladies in waiting'  fell through.the ice, and "were rescued'only in " the nick of time by  peasants   who   happened >to hear  their cries for help.   Thekaiser'was  so angry that he-subjected both  the princess and' her husband to  disciplinary punishment by ordering them'to remain, for six weeks  within the precincts o^ their country place at Glienike, near Potsdam,   and   to   appear   neither at  court nor at any other ��� entertainment during.that-time ,for 'having  violated��the'strict;rule which prescribes that no princess of the royal  houses.of-Prussia should-' leave her-  palace.without.bemg attended by a  'g'entleman> as ' well las a lady- in  waiting.

The reason for' this  strange division was to furnish the  queen's wardrobe with the-whalebone necessary for her stays^a fact  which is explicitly set forth in the  statute.   -,      , n   }"    fc (  ��� Queen. Alexandra moreover has  been placed by the accession of her  husband upon a footing entirely  different from that of married  women in general. She may purchase and convey land and perform  other acts of ownership without  the concurrence of her husband,  and is from a legal standpoint a  single rather than a married  woman. She will be crowned not  by the will of the people, nor by  any right of her own, but by the  command of her husband. ,.It is. the  king's will alone which determines  the matter, and it was because of  this prerogative of .the* sovereign  that king Edward's grand-uncle,  George IV, Was enabled to prevent  his consort from" being ..crowned, or  from, even crossing the threshold of  Westminster Abbey while his  ' coronation was in progress.  ^thrqhe^may.be said to have brought  about, the . rehabilitation i'of   sir  Charles Dilke, who is destined; to  become a far more conspicuous and  important factor in public life than  he, has-been at any-time during the  ���last tenryears: ,   . -'\ ^    J    ,.,   ,   .

The supreme court session was  concluded yesterday afternoon at  1 o'clock when the case of Harris vs.  Pitts was completed; At .the conclusion of the case Mr. justice Irving  said he would reserve his judgment, but-wheu it was given it  would be in favor of the plain tiff.  That is, mayor Pitts will have to  remove his buildings from Reco  street in the town of Sandon, which  was the cause of the action. Those  who testified in the case yesterday  were J. M. Harris. E. M. Sandilands  and E. ArBrown for the'plaintiff  and Messrs:iStubbs" and Pitts for  the defendant. The evidence elicited the fact that the defendant had  erected buildings on the street, but  tlie question to be decided by the  judge is iu what degree damages  were done.'".   _ .  _, "Although the session was a long  one only a comparatively short list  of cases were ;on the docket. The  judgments in the cases of Marino vs.  Alexander et;al, McLaren vs. Billings and Harris vs. Pitts have been  reserved and ,it will probably be  some time - before they are made  public. Tlie next session of the  supreme court for-the trial,of criminal cases will-be held heie in April.  Mr. Justice Irving left last evening for Victoria. After, remaining  there a few days he will' return - to  Vancouver, where he will preside  at supreme court. ��� * *  ! Too targe a District. /  ~ As. J. F.

William" Ttiomlinson, superintendent of the Speculator mine, an  extension of the Arlington, on  Springer creek, has just brought to  the city the first shipment of ore  fronTthat property. The consignment consists of about 30 tons and  is of a high grade. The property,  which is owned by the principal  shareholders of the Arlington, was  bonded six months ago, and during  that time probably more work has  been done on it than on any other  property in the district. The company has plenty of capital and they  mean to explore its mineral deposits  extensively. The work is being  done with a staff of about twenty-  five men.
