The suspen- sion doesn't apply in capital cases involving the slaying of police or prison guards. The table made public this week shows that 13 of the 36 Dolice murders occurerl flfler Dec. 28, 1967, when the five- year trial began. The worst year was 1962, when 11 policemen were slain. These included three shot during the chase in British Columbia of a man later killed by a police sharpshooter. NONE IN 1903 The best year was 1963, when no police slayings were report- ed. So far in 1971, a police slaying has yet to be reported to Statistics Canada. The 1902 high of 11 slayings is considered interesting be- cause hanging was still taking place then in Canada, especial- ly for the murder of police. The last man lo go lo the gal- lows was Ronald Turpin, hanged in late 19G2 for the shooting of Toronto Constable Fred Nash. Currently only one capital case is on the books. Thomas Shand of Winnipeg is appealing a death sentence imposed after his trial for killing a detective in Winnipeg. The federal cabinet has com- muted three other death sen- tences since 1967, using its royal prerogative of mercy. In the 36 slayings, 31 persons have been charged, 21 convict- ed, four found unlit to stand trial, four acquitted because of insanity, and two simply ac- quitted. THREE DIE IN FIGHTS Other killings have been solved before the case reached court. Three suspects died in fights wilh police and six others committed suicide. The suicides included a Sas- katchewan trapper suspected in the shooting deaths of two Mounlies last year. Only one of the 36 slayings since 19S1 is listed as unsolved. It occurred In 1969 wten Cpl. "obert Dumas, 32, was shot in Montreal the night of the police strike. Although suspension of the death penalty does not apply to police killers, the number of slayings jumped lo five in 1968 from three in 1567. The 1969 figure also was five and three more slayings oc- curred last year. In the 13 slay- ings since the end of 19G7, two suspects have committed sui- cide, 16 persons have been charged, convicted, one ac- quitted and another acquitted because of insanity. Cily solicitors suspended CALGARY (CP) Mayor Rod Sykcs said Friday city solicitor Jay Salmon and assis- :ant solicitor Jim Lowe have n suspended from ttieir jobs. The suspensions are to he re- ported to the next meeting of city council, the mayor said, and council will hear from law 3 for the two men and fron awyers from Uie board of com missioncrs before the suspen sions are agreed to or revoked No reasons were given foi he suspensions. Tlic action followed submis- sions to the city by Angus Mc- Donald of Edmonton who .was appointed by Ihe city to lonk into land holdings of senior civic personnel.

Two killed iii holdup MONTREAL (CP) A com- bined force of provincial and Montreal police shot and killed two men attempting to rob a credit union Friday in the south shore suburb of St. Easile Lc Tii-and. Gilles Labellc, 23, and Gilles Louis-Seize, 24, both of Mont- real, emerged from the credit union with a fliglUbag full of nioncy lo face police surround- ing (he building. IVben (he tiro began firing al police Uiey were cut by weapon fire. H. H. Smith Ltd. Customs Broker COINS Phont gests the meeting was "more o[ a courtesy some would say window dressing." The Ottawa meeting was called by federal Trade Minis- ter Jan Luc Pepm lo canvass provincial views on the U.S. moves. However, Mr. Evans said he doubts provincial views, "many of them varied and excellent, will have much impact on the federal position. Their mind is made up." He speculated Ottawa will adopt a policy of direct assist- ance to industries severely af- fected by the increased duly or the floating U.S. dollar. He personally opposed deval- uation of the Canadian dollar, since it would require using up foreign exchange reserves. The price may turn out be too high for what was achieved. Canada should react posi- tively to develop an expansion- ary domestic economy to off- set U.S. policies, he said. DON'T FOOL AROUND Ninety -one persons have been executed in Iran for ped- dling narcotics since such ex- ecutions were authorized by a law enacted in 1969. dian exchanges, the composite index rose..C7 points, closing at 183.12. Combined volume on (lie two e x c ha ng es was 6.21 million shares, compared with 5.OB mil lion last week. Western oil issues continued to post strong advances in ac- tive trading. Analysis attribute the strength lo continued buying of Canadian resource companic: by U.S. investors. In addition, the exemption of raw materials, such as gas and oil from the new surcharge, has made these issues attractive to investors. On the week, the Toronto western oil index rose 1.79 points to 239.48, a high for the year. Gold issues dropped sharply early in the week, reflecting a reduced demand for gold an a responding drop in price, o n Uie London bullion market. A rally late in the week re- covered most of the losses and the Toronto gold index closed at 175.15, up .88 points. SITUATION UNCERTAIN At New York, the uncertain international money market sit- uation, parlicularly the stability of the U.S. dollar, hindered market progress as most issues traded with a narrow range for most of the week. Friday, however, the market posted a strong advance, and on the week the Dow Jones in- dustrial average of 30 key blue- chip issues gained 4.52 points to 912.C7. Volume at New York was 57.07 million shares, compared with 76.50 million last week. Volume on the Toronto stock market was 8.85 million shares for a daily average of 1.00 mil- lion, compared with a total vol- ume of 8.30 million last week. Base metal issues continued to trade within a narrow range. The only major news of the week was an announcement by Giant Mascot that it had made a major find of low grade nickel ore near Harrison Lake, B.C., on property owned jointly with Giant explorations Lid. On the week, the Toronto base metal index was up .98 to 89.92. Fire prolrrlinn on mnnocrd form bmi: Aly Sahry faces death CAIRO (Reuler) Egypt's prosecutor-general asked today for the death sentence against former vice-president Aly Sabry and eight other leading defend- ants charged with high treason. Sabry, 51, and 90 other de- fendants had been charged with high treason after an alleged abortive coup in May. Only Sabry and 11 of the de- 'endants were in court today. The others, including former war minister Gen. Mohanred Fawzy, will be dealt with later. Sabry's lawyer pleadtc' at the opening session of the court last week that the tribunal was un- constitutionally stt up and was not empowered to try the de- 'endants. When flic court resumed today, the p r e s i d i sg judge, is speaker of the People's medialely announced that this submission had been studied and rejected.
