OFFICIAL NEGLIGENCE.
In another column we publish llie
presentment of the Grand Jury, winch
was read liy I he foreman, Col. Warren, to Mr, Justice Crease, lbe presiding judge of the Court of Assize, recently held In Vernon.
In performing this duty of drawing
the attention of Hu authorities to
matters of public Importance, the
foreman expressing Hie seniioieuls of
bis colleagues, snid ;- -
f We hesitate somewhat In taking ad*
vantage of Your Lordship's Invitation,
being iinceitiii'n how I'ltf- out' reciiui;
nieiidiitions niii'y be of pcai-tiea) stjr;
i Its tp l.lieiiuthoririesiiiw|uiiiil!iey

jiressfilg duiies whicli f lie Governuieul
tins 10 peii'iii'iit uinl the burdens whicli
llie liiiiinces have In hour."
Thul such a hesitation should have
been fell, Is fully explained on the
grounds that, the matters of puhlic ini*
jioi'tance in Ibis instance referred to,
an* Identical with those to which
attention was drawn liy Ihe gentlemen who sains Grand Jurors nt the
October Assize of lust, year, Il was
therefore not unnatural Hint in again
alluding to matters of which apparently, absolutely uo police |iajj tieep taken nn unwillingness to express nn
opinion slini|lt] have, been experienced.
The failure qf tin: authorities to
act upon suggest ions coming from so
intelligent a source cannot lie attrlbut*
ed lo an Impoverished stale of the provincial exchequer, when the nature of
(lie Improvements wliieli lhey were requested to institute is taken into consideration, It is manifestly tlie duty
pf a government for the safeguard of
society, tq provide fm-the construct on
and maintaining in re pair of alequately
commodious and secure buildings for
fhe detention of prisoners awaiting
trial. Again, in regitix] to the improve-
lients recommended for the Vernon
public-school, the reform is so urgent,
ami could lie effected by so small an
expenditure that i|] their failure to
take action the authorities lay themselves open to a charge of gross uegli-
p'lice.
If this important function of u
Grand Jury is lo In* treated with so little ceremony, and ils suggestions re*
Itltilig to neeessury reform received
witli silent disregard, il, were belter in
order that the respect whicli hitherto
British Courts of Law have ttiroly failed lo compel may be maintained, thai
anything iif it fiircial mil lire should be
abolished.
We I rust, however., I bill, the Hon,
the Commissioner of Lands and Works
who was present at the recent, silling
of Ihe Court at Vermin, and who, we
understand, proinised that the recommendations <if the jury should receive
his curliest consideration, will, during
liis term nf office, establish it precedent
in his department for promptness in attending tiithe needs of a district, when
Voiced by so important a body as a
Grand Jury, that the abolition of one

On Friday, June Uth, John Haywood of Anarchist Mountain was arrested for cattle stealing from another

A, 11. Lamlily and R. G. Sidl.iy, J's.P.
The prisoner on being remanded was

generally understood that the case is a
fitrong one against him.
Work upon the main trunk road is
progressing favorably at the summit
pear Camp McKinney, and it is to be
hoped that sufficient funds will be
forthcoming, so that the same may he
put into first-class condition throughput its entire length. The requirements of the country ran only be met
hy good roads, trails, and bridges, and
these tlie govc|'pnient must endeavour
to furnish i fon nothing thai, can be

development of a country than judicious expenditure in this direction,

where oo the restful Sabbath, during
tbe summer, he will spend his day
contemplating nature from beneath
the shade of his own pine tree. It is,
however, a matter foi- congratulation
Unit available agricultural land, at
least that surrounding Midway, is being rapidly acquired by a ni06t desirable class of settler.
The survey nf the Colvijle Indian
Reservation, has been a matter of
much comment for a long time past,
in fact so long ago were the contracts
awarded that people commenced to
believe the summer would be allowed
to slip away without aoy work being
done. This, however, will not be the
case, for we are assured that survey
parties are at. work on tne west end of
the reservat ion which is hounded by
the Okanagan R|ver, they having
come upon the ground by way of Wen-
atchee antl thence by steamer to Johnson Greek, It may therefore lie presumed that it will not lie long before
other outfits are In Ihe field, and the
end of llie yeiii' may yet see the survey
completed,
On Tuesday lasl, Mr 11, Cawston passed through Mfdway witli a large drove
of beef cal lie, some SO bead, tlml bad
lieen selected out of the band recently
purchased by Mr. Ellis from tho
Haynes'estate, These cattle will be
driven over tlie trail between Grand
Prairie and Trail Creek, as they are
Intended for the Rossland market,
That cattle men are finding a market
to the east, io our mining camps, instead of having, as formerly, to depend
entirely upon tlie coast to furnish an
outlet for their stock, is very encouraging and should have the effect, of not
only maintaining a firm price for cattle, but should give an impetus to the
almost—as far as small ranchers are
concerned— effete business of cattle
raisjng throughout the entire Okanagan country.

Peculiar conditions, which arise

that two-thirds of lhe crop will lie diverted from the seacoast lo interior

and the anomaly will he presented of a

Owners of the grain ships visiling

At the present price of wheat in Chicago, about 80 cents a bushel, and lhe

THIS MOST INTERESTING CASE NKAW.Y
SETTLED,
Although proceedings were commenced us long ago us 1HD2, yel Uu- details
iu Ihis ul nil times Interesting case
will be fresh In the memory of ninny.
The property recovered is very valuable, lieing situated, near the ll.C. .Mission in Hie Mission valley, und was certainly worth contending for, Tbe
proceedings which were at first carried on in a somewhat lethargic manner where suddenly maile Interesting
when uvei a year ago lhe plaintiffs
brought soil io evict defendants from
certain land, 80 acres, ,-t' Okanagan
Mission in whicli lhey (defendants),
were in possession.
The case eume up iiir li-inl al Kamloops before Mr. Justice Walketn, and
partly beard, when lbe whole matter
was referred, to arbitration. Judge
Spiuks was appointed arbitrator for
the defendants, nml Mr. T, Ellis for
the plaintiffs, with Bfr, II. Cawston us
referee. The case was then heatd boforo arbitrators at Qkaungau Mission
in March, 181)1, antl Hie award tiiucje in
favor of defendants with all costs incurred. The substance pf the (patter
was as follows: Lequime's I ilie produced at the bearing consisted iu a
Crown Grant of lhe property in his
name; but it was held that Hie snme
wus obtained by him on the Lawrence's giving up llieir right to 80
acres to enable Mia Lequime to obtain
a grant of the whole lot of 1(10 acres.
Mr. Lequime promising to re-convey
the811 acres back to the Lawrences;
inil when requested, lo do so lie refused.
We now understand that the conveyance to the defendants lias been
executed, and there is nothing left but
payment of costs to end this long and
tedious law suit, The costs will undoubtedly be very heavy,
