THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Accused of Shooting Constable
in Charge of Trapping
EDMONTON, Alta., Jan. 14.-(/P)
-Beyond the Arctic circle, near the
mouth of the broad MacKenzie,
mounted police planned anew to-
day attempts to capture a hermit
trapper accused of wounding a
One expedition to his lonely
cabin up the old Yukon trail from
Aklavik, N. W. T., was thwarted
when the trapper, Albert Johnson,
greeted it with rifle fire.
He held eight men off for 15
hours. The posse withdrew when
its supplies became low. Another
patrol was believed making the
trip to the cabin today.
A report to the mounted police
headquarters here said the second
patrol was to work from a new
base at the mouth of Rat River,
20 miles below Johnson's cabin.
The officers believe the trapper to
be demented. His isolated cabin
sits on a brush-covere' promon-
Hastily-constructed bombs were
thrown at the cabin, wrecking the
door, and Johnson then moved into
a tunnel beneath the floor and
continued his fire.
The man was accused of shoot-
ing Constable A. W. King when
ing and Constable R. G. Mc-
Dowell went to his cabin several
days ago to investigate complaints
of Indians that their trap lines
were being tampered with. A shot
fired through the door hit King,
but he was brought back to Akla-
vik by dog team and will recover.
The arctic twilight hindered the
besiegers of the stronghold.

Bi Decrease Reported in Cemetery Business
Prices of Lots Remain Practically Constant
Although the blame cannot be'
directly placed upon the depression,
it is nevertheless true that there
has been a large decrease in the
number of deaths and therefore in
the number of burials during the
past year, according to Erwin E.I
Schmid, secretary of the Forest
Hill cemetery association. The price
of lots has not been reduced and
there is no price war in prospect.
Schmid admitted that the new
cemeteries r e c e n t 1 y constructed
have probably had an effect upon
the business of Forest Hill. But he
emphasized the fact that the latter
is a non-profit institution while the
new memorial parks are. run on a
strictly profit basis.
Asked what he thought of the,
new metal plates used in the mem-
orial parks in omparison to the
old stone monument idsa employed
by Forest Hill, Schmid said that he
preferred the monument because
it is more distinctive in appearance
than the flat plates. However, he
said, the plate is a prime charac-
teristic of the memorial park type.
Many prominent people are bur-
ied in Forest Hill including Gover-
nor 1elch,' Presidents Angell, Bur-
ton and Hutchins. The oldest burial
is Elisha Rumsey, one of the found-
ers of the city. In all about ten
thousand people are buried there
but Schmid denied rumors that the
cemetery is nearly filled to 'capa-
city. "We can supply the demand
r for more than fifty years," he said.
