VOLUME XLII.-NO. 25. CRAITE’S WISE DECISION. Republicans, However, Would Make Capital Out of it. mt stoat or the novak case. there Was Only One Conclusion to Arrive at- IUDGMENT ACCORDING TO LAW AND FACT. the killing Was Done Purely in Self-de fense and Not by Any Malice or Aforethought. Judge Craite's political enemies are ■esorting to shady tricks to defeat him n his candidacy for the office of muni ipal judge. They are circulating a tory that when he released Novak who tilled Rathsiicl it the Half-way House, t was a •■job" and that he should have teld him fur manslaughter. The judge vas seen by a Pilot representative re tarding his connection with the case. !nd he said emphatically that when the videuce was submitted to him. there ras only one thing to do and that was jo discharge Novak. IJulge Craite says that Novak had one to the Half-way House and had sere encountered Kathsack and a half dozen of his companions. Rathsack Ind his chums abused Novak and the itter made several attempts to dee j rom his persecutors but was unable to lude them. He was chased through le house, into a room, and not until lis tormentors had driven him to to the ergeof madness by their cruelty did he raw the knife and slash it about indis criminately. Rathsack came within le zone of the knife's activity and paid Ue penalty with his life. When the ase was brought before Judge Craite |e had only one course to follow, that Ictated by law and fact, and despite of riticism he did his duty. It was subsequently that Former Dis ict Attorney Shenian endorsed Judge raite's action by refusing to rearrest ovak and have the facts presented Tore another judge. By his wisdom Judge < ’raite saved the unity i?4.i)'io. EVEN NEW MEMBERS OF THE RIDING AND DRIVING CUB.

For a little time Mr. Anderson cogi tated, every now and then tapping bis forehead as if to awaken a bright thought.

SAY IT IS VALUABLE PROPERTY. Watt is Interviewed by the Phoenix Pioneer. GLOWING ACCOUNT OF BLUE BELL MINE. Mr. Watt is Impressed With the Boundary Country.—He Belie\es it Has A Great Future. The Rev. Father Ryan, pastor of the Maple Grove <TumTi, who was out iußrit ish Columbia looking after some mining ; interests sends The Pilot the following I excerpt, taken from The Spokane Chron i icle; ■‘.T. P, Watt, n well-to-do merchant of Maple Grove. Wis., was in town Thurs day for the first time, says the Phoenix I Pioneer. Air, Watt is secretarv-treasnr 'er of the Lake Shore Ar British Coluin | hiti Copper Mining & Development, com pany. which is developing the Blue Bell 1 and J. s. claims in Summit camp. "It will be remembered that these claims were bonded to John Dorsey last fall for .4(57.000, who went back East to I the scenes of his boyhood days and or ganized the company referred to, which j is controlled by men of means, who are 1 prepared to make a big mine of the ! Blue Bell, if plenty of capital intelli gently used, can accomplish that result, i In speaking to a Pioneer man, Mr. : Watt said; T am not a mining man, but from all j I can learn we have in the Blue Bell a valuable property. .1. M. Scrafford. the superintendent, tells me that, for the work done, the property has a show ing far ahead of that at the great B. C. mine at the same relative stage of de" velopment. The main shaft has reach ed a depth of about i*o feet, is in ore all the way. and now shows six feet of ore at the bottom, which they say is of a good grade. Crosscuts of JA f-*et are al so in ore. T came out prepared t* spend what ever was needed on a machinery plant, but Air. Scrafford advise-; waiting till a depth of I',’u feet is reached and some crosscutting is done, so that a plant of sufficient capacity for - ome time to come can be decided on. This we have decid ed to do, and to get along with the whim for a short time. Three shifts are employed and the indications are most favorable.' "Air. Watt is very much impressed with the Boundary country, of which lie has heard a good deal in the past, and was surprised t i find so much of a town at Phoenix. Ke expects to return to tin- section some time next summer. OLD OFFICERS IN INDLSTRIAL ASSOCIATION ARE RETAINED.

Every person who knows Mr. Chlonpek, | particularly every Democrat km ws that such rumor is baseless and is fabricated for the purpose of injuring him in this election.

It W ill Not Open as Well as Last Year. VESSEL REPAIRS SOMEWHAT TARDY• Trouble is in Sight With the Dock Laborers. AS TO PROBVBI.E FREIGHT RATES. Strike in the Anthracite Coal Regions Will Have a Depressing Influence on l ake Tonnage. The shipping season is now close at hand, hence the following excerpt as to the seas ni's prospects will make vain able reading: "At this time a year ago men were at work in all parts of the great lakes get ting ships in readiness to move upon an nouncement that the Straits of Macki naw were free of ice. as all arrange limits have been made for a very active season at freights highly profitable for the vessels. Tims far nothing has been done towards preparing vessels for the coming season, as conditions arc the opposite of what they were a year ago. and even if the question of freights was settled, it seems almost impossible to avoid labor troubles in some lines. Everything still points to delay, and a light movement of freight in the early part of the season. Sonic progress has been made, however, during the past few day-- With the the I'nited States Steel corporation settled, a move has been made towards fixing prices of ore for the interests that are not pro ducers of their own raw material, and it is expected that the Bessemer < ire association will make an announcement on this score within the coming week, it is fortunate for the or interests that the steel combination caused delay, as j the advance in pig iron, and other con ditions that have arisen of late, have all tended to strengthen the ore situa tion. "Representatives of longshoremen em-! ployed on the ore and coal docks of Lake Erie have been in conference with the dock managers, and it is expected that they will conclude an agreement with the close ~f the present week. The workmens’ representatives started in with a demand for m ten instead of a twelve hour day. and with a schedule of | wages even higher than last year, j Tin y asked, for instance, for 154 cents a- i shoveling charge for unloading iron ■ ore, as against 14 cents hist season. 11l is understood that the demand for a shorter clay has been abandoned, and it is the general opinion that in the final compromise tne shoveling charge for ore will be b! cents, as compared with the 11 cent charge of last season, with the coal shoveling schedule and day labor charges cut down in proportion to tit** 'light reduction for ore shoveling. "Tlie railroads hauling coal from the West Virginia and Pittsburg districts to Lake Eric ports have made a small redne tion in rates and it is expected that prices of c >al which will soon be announced, will be somewhat lower than they were a year ago. but the reduction in steam boat fuel will not be sufficient to cut much of a figure in operating expenses of the vessels. If is quite evident, therefore, that the ships are to be con fronted with costs very little below those of last year and the additional disadvantage of about (i,(Kill,(Mill 'oii> more capacity than last year. "Furthermore, it is quite probable that a strike in the Anthracite coal region will cut out this branch of the lake trade for a long pern si, and there are no signs of a grain movement from the head o' Lake Superior, while the shipments from Chicago are not ex pee ted to equal an average season. For all these reasons the owners of ships, aside from those that have business on account of ore or railroad connections, are idle and have made no move tow ards meet ing the engineers' strike or any other condition that they may encounter when the time has finally arrived for starting their vessels. 3 THOSE MHO ARE INDISPOSED.

CHAIRMAN NOLAN CONFIDENT OF CHLOUPEK AND CRAITE’S ELECTION. I County Chairman James Nolan re | turned this morning after a thorough canvass of the county and he is enthn siastic in his belief that John Ch'onpek will be the next county judge, succeed ing Judge J. S. Anderson, and that Isaac Craite will lie elected. Mr. Xol •in then said that "It seemed to me that each town and village I went to was strongly in favor of the election of John Chloupok and Isaac Craite. Both men are considered well lilted for the positions to which they as pire and that is what contributes to their strength. Deaths of a Week.
