SURVEY AT PRINCE RUPERT Vancouver, R, C, Nov. 11.-Rapid profrress is hv'my. made in llu; completion of tho survey of tho town site of Prince Rupert. One hundred and twenty men are now at work stalking out lots and with contiimcd fine weather it is expecter careful consideration of this evidence, and after Addresses tin botJ( 'sidt>�, whieii put the nuitter most fully to them. And whether tliat verdict, which the jury has just rendered would be the verdict I would have given, had I been trying the ease without a jury, it i.s uiiiiecessm-y for mo to May and I am nut even now suggesting I would have given any other verdict. In view of the verdict it is my duty to impose n punisli-ment. The provision reads: Every one is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to one year's impri.son-ment and to a fine not (ixceeding two iumdred dollars or to b'>th, who publishes any defamatory libel." Opinion of Eye Opener "In considering the punishment I should have imposed, I have a right to take .into count/as I have no doubt they wish I .should, tlie words the JU17 have added to their verdict, and I projiose to do so..

MINER ARRESTED Sydney, N. .S, Nov. 12.-John Mof-I'.f, grand secn'tary of the Provincial Workmen's union wss today committed for tviid cliarged criminal or of a troublesome character but rather of one of strong passion and determination when aroused. He sits in the docket and follows very closely every word of the evidence which- promises to place the fatal rope around his neck. As far as the case has gone it looks as if he had eonsideruble ivovocation, chiefly from the deceased Antonio Castauia. He is being tried first, however, for the murder of the other brother, who, it appears took but little part iu the quarrel. The three witnesses who have been examined have told the story of Uie criiiu! from the quarrel at the house in I.illo where the tragedy took placo on the aft'Crnoon of Sept. 25, until the prisoner was placed under arrest at the R.N.W.M. Police barracks in Frank, where he came to give himself up. The witnesses were Mrs. Louise Panni, witli whom the deceased and the prisoner boarded, F. M. Pinkey with whom he came to Frank and Constable Holmdcn to whom he surrendered himself. The Boarding Mittrecs Mrs. Parmi, the iiril witness, is a bright little Italian , woman whose knowledge of English was so limited as to make it necessary to have an interpreter. According to lier evidence the accused, Angolo Mont, canus home from the mine about four o'clock in the afternoon and having changed his trousers, washed the upper part of his body in the kitch- en. He w.'Ls drying himself when the two brothers Salvator Caslania, generally known as Sam, and Antonio came in. The former asked Angelo how long he had been in America and was told sfven years, whereupon Antonio asked him if in all that time he had not met some one "to get a last for his shoe.s." Thi.s is one of the greatest i)o.s.sible insults to nn Italian and is ecjnivalent to asking him if he had not come someone who ought to kill or strike him. Angelo did not show very gi-eot an- CHINA PLANS FOR WAR WITH JAPAN Missionary Makes Some Sen sational Statements P. E. I.

Antonio then threatened to blaoki'ii his eyes and Angelo wanted him 1! he felt so strong to come outside where there was plenty of room and fight it out and threw down the towel. Antonio grabbed him and shoved hiin up against the wall with his side over the wntortap. Sam got into the fray, but whotber it was to separate tlieni or to strike .\ngolo. the witness diil not know. She herself finally sepavated them and urged them not to ciuarnrl. Antonio then went and got a stick of wood and came at AuReUi who folded his arms and told him to strike. Mrs. Parmi t-nnk the stick from Antonio. A Sudden Shot .\ngel() then Vicjit upstairs. Sani went on to cleaning hLs miner's lamp and Antonio sat on a chair near tho witness and was taking off his socks when Angelo in four or five minutes came downstairs. Mrs. Parmi heard a shot and Antonio fell at her feet dond.Tuniing ayound she saw Angelo, who wa.s standing on a little landinj; lour steps from the bottom, shoot Sam who had his back to him hangint up his lamp on the wall about tlivee feet from him. He staggered across the room and after goiiin two steps outride fell to the ground. She cried out, "O, Angelo, what have you done? You have killed both my god-fathers!"
