He told them to go down to the traffic bridge, hut they said that was too far. Later in the day they asked him to sell them some of Ms poultry, but he refused. They hung araund most of that day in ths neighborhood of Zakiuk's house, and acted in such a suspicious manner that ho went up twice to the Mounted Police, and asked for protection. The, second time he went un he met special constable Vesari on the street and asked him to come down. Shot at Constable Vesari went down at a'bout 5.30 on Monday afternoon, and point- ed out to him the place where he had last seen the men. Vesari had his re- volver, but did not expect to have to use it, thinking that jthe men were harmless hoboes. When he had tra- versed about two hundred yards of the jungle lie came to. a place where the bushes were a little higher than elsewhere. Just as he parted the bushes he saw two men seated in a a small natural clearing. At the same instaul one of the men pulled his automatic revolver and shot at him once at a range of about twenty feet. Vesari fell to ths "ground, and'the men. backed off, evidently thinking they had wounded him. When.they were out of sight, Vesari went back ,o Zakiuk'a house, where he found, .hem very much exercised over the report of the shot. Just then Constable Lobb of the Mounted Police arrived on the sOflno, and when he heard what had happen- ed, went down to the pumpinp station and 'phoned in the alarm to head- quarters. Men were Immediately sent down to both sides of the river, but the fugitives had had a good start and their whereabouts "was very problem- atical. Detachments of Mounted and city police searched all western banks of the river, and all the farm- houses on that side of river, the search continuing until two o'cloqk Tuesday mornmgr.
