It the only new and startling devel- opment -In thek chase, some -new_. details on the Saturday shooting are given by inspector Risk, In charge of UD" detachment of the Alljorta constabulary Who return-, ed in' Lethbridge ing. Inspector Risk when leen by t tie Herald did not care to give out anything about the unfortun- ate shooting of Kysllk. It was a mistake pure and.slmple, but manner In which It occurred 1 proves that the police on the job are fully aware of the desperate characters of the bandits and that It .Is the-better part of valor to shoot first and talk afterwards.. Inspector Risk states that the hardest feature of the whole hunt Is'to determine whg are the bandits' friends. That they have friends in the Pass ready to aid them at .every turn is evident from information which the'police are not in a position to divulge, and they are following up this new Information In the belief that- it will yet lead them to Basscfi's hiding place. INSPECTOR RISK'S STORY The story of the shooting as told by Inspector Risk, after" a very thorough investigation on Sunday, is that on Saturday after- noon the police at Bellevue were tipped .off that two of the bandits were in. the Beltevue cafe getting a meal.' Constables Frewin: and Bailey of the provincial police and Corp. Usher of the-Mounjeo Police formed the detachment in Beilevue at the time.- They look- ed to their suns, and mapped out their plan of campaign which pro- vided for Const. Frewin, who was In charge of the detachment and Corp. Usher were to enter by the front door, and Const. Bailey was to guard the back. Frewin and Usher entered .with their guns drawn but concealed. They spot- ted their men, 'Frewin tfrew and covered while Usher cov- ered Bassoff Frwln ordered them to hold up'lheir hands, and when they to obey he fired. He emptied his magazine at Akroff, wounding him badly... The- strange part of the Ihit fJsher does not appear to hare fired a shot Ihough Ije bad BassQff covered. Whether Bas- EOff had shot and par'alizcd him, ing from under the table or what was the reason for the failure of the Mountie Jo use his' weapon will never be explained, .but the fact reraaine that his shoot has resulted In his own death .-and the killing oi Const.
