The news of the conviction of Edwards, alias Miner, "Shorty" Dunn and Colqiihnun was received in Vancouver on Friday evening and was speedily announced all over the tty by The World, which, an usual, led all newspapers in giving the information to the public.

The movement on Granville street continues, and shows no indication of being spent. Business in east end properties continues lively, and the remark that there is always something doing in North Vancouver realty applies with more force than usual this week.

Preliminary Canter Only Capt, Gaudin Shanghaiing Inquiry Not (he Feal Thing. Member Wires That Thotv ough Investigation Will Be Held. It is probable that the agitation in connection with the Keating shanghaiing case will rest until the evidence taken by Capt. Gaudin has reached the department at Ottawa and it is definitely known whether or not the department will order a fuller inquiry. A telegram received by the committee of the Typographical union in answer to their protest regarding the scope of the so - called investigation yesterday indicates that it is altogether likely that a properly constituted investigation will be ordered. The telegram is from R. G. Macpherson, M. P., and reads: , "Gaudin not appointed. Only preliminary. An investigation satisfactory to your committee and myself is the only investigation 1 will stand for. "R. G. MACPHERSON." Under the circumstances the committee see nothing to be done until there is further nnd definite word from Ottawa. What the committee would like to see would he a properly constituted judicial inquiry, and it is suggested that Stipendiary Magistrate Alexander, who is thoroughly conversant with local conditions and knows the situation, would make a very satisfactory judge. Mayor Buscomhe said this morning that in view of the despatch sent from Ottawa by Mr. R. G. Macpherson, M. P., that nothing would satisfy him but the fullest and freest investigation of the Keating kidnaping or shanghaiing case, it would not be advisable.,, for anyone else to make a move in the matter in the meantime. They would be quite safe in waiting till Mr. Macpherson has either got what he wants or has used his last endeavor to do so. In that case there was another course of action that could be taken to have light thrown on the matter. It will not be allowed to drop, but it would not be fair to hamper Mr. Macpherson nt this stage of the proceedings with any outside interference. Any assistance he might need would he cheerfully given. changes in Ministry Consequent Upon Appointment of Fitzpatrick as Chief Justice, Ottawa, Ont.. .Tune 2 (Special.) Hon.

MANY ARE KILLED IN RACE RIOTS Entire Police Force of Mexican Town Is Wiped Out in Defending Americans From Striking Miners Los airgeles, Cal., June 2. A special to the Times from El Paso, Texas, says: Reports from Nco declare that in a riot fullowing a strike of the Mexican miners at the Greene Consolidated Mines, Cananea, 10 Mexican policemen have been killed together with George i McDonald, manager of the lumber department of the'mines, and his brother, I and thirty strikers. The entire Cananea police force was wiped out and the Mexicans are in control, being resisted by American minerj and citizens who ! have surrounded the Consolidated prop - j erty. The town iston fire and the I rioters have used dynamite to blow up the houses of Americans. The situation is regarded as terribly serious and American Cosol Gaibraith has asked Washington for protection. Volunteers have been rushed frc Bishee, Arizona, by special train. - Governor Ysabel is on the way from Hermosillo with state troops and Gen. Kosttrilitzky is on the way from Magdalene with Rurales.

The reason given by Mr. C. E. Tisdall is that the park board cannot afford to pay the raise in the price of each concert, exacted hy the hand. Last year the band gave concerts for $.11. .10 each, while this season the price asked is $40. The difference for the season will amount to and the park board are powerless to raise this amount as those who are directly benefited by the concerts, including the B. C. Electric company, absolutely refuse to provide any larger subscrip'ion toward the concerts than they contributed last season. It is true that the band has consented to give two - hour concerts, but in the opinion of the park board a two - hour concert will keep the young people out too iate. The band is giving the Sunday concerts at the same rate as was charged last year. RTSiTto EUROPE. New York, June 2. The six transatlantic liners sailing today go ont with every berth taken.

Few matters in connection with the administration of justice have stirred up puhlie indignation in Vancouver as strongly as the release of that, conscienceless criminal, Desire Brothier. There is only one bright spot in the whole of what is to tie said about the matter so far, and that is that the prin cipal condition of the pardon is that Brothier is to leave Canada. It is understood that his friends, save the mark, are to send him to Paris. There, it may be presumed, he will doubtless resume his nefarious profession of procuring young girls to lead a life of shame. There is no excuse in the opinion of most people for such a crent - nre as Brothier being alive at all, let alone being abroad. Thnt redolent rodent, the polecat, would be a more acceptable companion Ihnu he. Many people think that the unfinished charges against him should be revived so that he can be put back ns soon as possible where he belongs. "It is a most disgraceful thing. It is a shame and a blot on our judicial system. It cost thousands of dollars to convict that field in human form, Brothier, nnd the sentences imposed on him were at the best inadequate. He Is not lit to be abroad and this city tins no room for him. The police have been advised accordingly." So spoke Mayor Buscomhe, when asked this morning his opinion of the pa - 'doii of the brute Brothier. "The news came to me as the greatest surprise possible," said Mr. T. S. Baxter. "I think that a full explanation of the affair should be mnde public. There must have been something laid before the department of justice to bring about such a move and the public should know what it was." Mr. E. Burns, who prosecuted Brothier, said: "I knew nothing of any such move being mnde till I heard that Brothier was free. It is r, stain on the administration of jiistiee. The whole matter should be sifted to the bottom ami the public put in possession of the facts." Chief Constable Colin Campbell is nt a loss to understand how Brothicr's release was brought about. If ever n man deserved punishment, he did. Hi - - crimes were the bhukest and vilest and he was committed for trial on ten charges, although only three of them were pushed. There were three cases of procuring and convictions were obtained on two of them. There was one case of perjury on which a conviction was secured. There were also ywo cases of theft and four of forgery, on which n stay of proceedings was entered when the oilier convictions had been made, it being thought that Brothier would get a fair share on the other charges. Instead he got off with only seven years, five years was the term for. the perjury and two years for procuring. He got two years on each count, but they run concurrently, yet this was to be cumulative on the perjury term. "Now." says Mr. Campbell, "he has been let nut with only two years of his seven years up. It seeins hardly worth while to send men to penitentiary if thev arc to only receive less than a third of their full term. Brothier, nnywiiy. should be locked up in a moral pest - house. lie is not fit to be nbroad in any decent community." Members of the police force and detectives who worked up the case against Brothier are a unit in expressing the utmost disgust and indignation over the pardon of Brothier. One and all they look upon the man ns the most abandoned wretch ever brought to justice in British Columbia, and whose righteoun desserts would have been a life term. It is not very well known that Brothier made a desperate attempt to bribe the officers who effected his arrest. On the way to the station he offered Pi EARTHQUAKE SHAKES UP BIG SOUND CITY Real Estate Moves Perceptibly in Seattle - Chimneys Quiver and People Get Out Into Streets. "We got a shaking up all right." said Mr. F. S. I'.osiey of Seattle, one of the Great Northern's locomotive engineers, running between here and Seattle. "It was some time before sunrise on Friday morning, coming on to six o'clock, I guess. I was in bed nt home in Seattle at the time. The shock did not devastate the city, as the clairvoyant woman ,u id it would, but it was a genuine earth tremble all right. The hou - e moved, dishes tumbled about and the furniture did a bit of a jig. Finding that the house was not coming down I went to sleep again, but my wife drested and sought safety in the open." Mr. Bosley was a guest at the Hotel the give them $7000 spot cash to let him get away. One of the strongest protests against the release of Desire Brothier from the penitentiary comes from Mr. H. H. Stevens, secretary of the Moral Reform association. Mr. Mevens brands it a nn unprecedented outrage that cannot hut disgust and nrotise all right - minded citizens. He states that the matter will be discussed at the regular meeting ot the association next week, although hs hardly knows what can be done beyond the registering of n most emphatic pro test in the right quarters. When asked his opinion of the pardoning of Desire Brothier. Police Court Prosecutor Enrris said, "I don't know. It seems strange." Chief North was more expressive, as is shown hy his answer to the samo question, "I think it's a disgrace." Ha went on to say that there were several other charges against Brothier which ha thought could have been pressed to conviction, but in the face of the sentences given Brothier the remainder of the charges were drepprd. Mr. S. Moore, the barrister, thought "it was the limit," while Mr. G. V. Cane considered that Brothier was the victim of a plot against him by some others who were as guilty as he and in view of the fact that these had escaped punishment he could find no fault with the pardoning of Brothicr. Mrs. Brothier was seen lu Vancouver yesterday in company with a man who is supposed to be a member of the gang. ami intormaiiou is reunuiy given, though not authenlicated pnsi - lively, that the Brothier woman, who escaped trial here, is '(inducting a house of ill - fame in Portland. Several legal men have advanced the opinion that the remaining untried charges which have been sleeping in the archives of the court, could be brought nn anil the man forced to stand trial tor 1 each. A rumor has been on the street since the release of Brothicr became known, that some local firm of lawyers had been acting for him in endeavoring to procure a pardon. In some quarters the names of Messrs. Russell, Russell Si Potlenger have been used. When interviewed hy The World this morning these gentlemen state that shortly after Brothicr w - as committed to the penitentiary, they were approached hy his brother who wished them to look into the case and see if there were any possible grounds on which to base an. appeal. The firm decided thnt they could do nothing for Brothier, nnd from that time until now they have known absolutely nothing about the case. So far as can he learned no Vancouver firm has had anything to do with procuring Brothicr's pardon.
