Some weeks ago suit, was started in
the Superior Oourt liy _. Roy Slater
ami Charles H. Wolf against the Waterloo Mining k Milling company anil
lhe Waterloo Cimsoliilaled Mining &
Millim* company, liy which the plaintiffs sought to prohibit, the Hrsl company from re-incorporating under the
mime given as the second defendant.
The purpose of the company in reincorporating was to make the stock
assessable instead of nonassessable, us
was the caoe ot the old compuny.
The complaint lirst Bet forth that
the plaintiffs, Slater k Wolf, own
40,00(1 shares in the old company,which
is the Waterloo Mining & Milling company, which stock is fully paid and
nonassessable. The directors of this
conipany are C. F, Mercian), J. V.
Iti'ddy, W. G. Estep, P. S. Byrne,
Thoniiis Graham, B. A. Merrick ami
t:. L. Hoffman, On Lhe 2-llh of last
September itis set forth lhat a iiiee.i
ing of I he stockholders of I lie old com
pany was called and at thai nieeling tx
majority of lhe stockholders being
present, a resolution was passed as
follows:
'_!Authorizing and directing Ibe trustees of the company to transfer and
set over to a new company, thereafter
lo be organized, all of the old com
P;'. *y_ipropoi'tyi vou! nxoi pcisuiuti, in
consideration of the following agree
ment, to wil, that the new cdmpanj
should have a capitalization of $125,000
divided inlo 1,'A">0,000 shares at a pill
value of 10 cents per share, of which 0
cents should be paid anil 4 cents shoulil
remain unpaid till called for by the
trustees of the new company; thai the
new company should deliver lo the
old company 1,250,0(10 shares of stock,
being all of its capital stock, and
should assume and agree to pay the
debts of Ihe old company, amounting
to about the sum of $5,000, aud pa;
the expenses nf disincnrpoiation j tha
ut the time of the adoption of the reso
Intion it. was tlie intention of the stock
holders to thereafter wind up the af
fairs of and dissolve the old compuny."
Ou Ihe 27th of September the trustees of the company, it is claimed, attempted lo carry out the action of the
stockholders' meeting nnd authorized
the officers ot tbe old company to con
vev all the property ot the old com
puny to the new company, the Water
loo Consolidated Mining k Milling
conipany. On the lOlh of October, ii
is claimed, the president and secretary
untile Ihe deeds turning over tothe
new company all the property, ami
that the new company si ill retains the
property.
The trustees of the new conipany, il
is slated, are llohuan, Reddy, Graham,
K W.Taylor, Merrick and Byrne, all
of whom,with the exception of Taylor,
were officers and Irustees of the old
conipnny,  Continuing, the complain!
slates :
"That said purported sale was and is
wholly without any consideration
whatsoever, and is void iu Ibis, to wil:
that the old conipnny received nothing
irf-vnliie therefrom i that the new com
pany had no oilier or furl ber assets
than Iliose to he conveyed to It hy lhe
old company ; lhat the uew company
lias never delivered to the old compuny
any of iis (the new company's) capital
stock, but bus issued and delivered to
divers and sundry persons ovei one
inillinn shares of iti cnpilal slock, by
reason whereof ii has made il Impossl
blc fori! to comply with the terms of
iis purported agreement i that the sale
is void for Ihe further reason ihat the
old conipnny was without authority or
power lo receive, subscribe for, hold
or ownlttook In the new conipany, and
wns without power or authority losell
nil of ils properly ns aforesaid for any
oihei consideration thnn money ; that
the purported sale is voiil for the further reason that al the time it was
purported to be made nnd ill the time
of ils purported acceptance by lhe new
ciiiiipaiiy Byrne, Merrick, Graham,
linldy and MeVl'Inni weie and now aie
trustees of hoih companies and con
sl ilntcd a majority of the board of
trustees of each conipany and upon
each board voted for Ihi' ngreeuienl
mul were thereby placed in lbe posilion of both buyers and sellers,"
Further, it was claimed that the
new company has levied an assessment
of 5 mills per share on all capital slock
and has advertised the same In be sold
April 28 lo the courthouse to satisfy
the payment nf assessments. Furlher,
It is staled lhat the new coinpaiiy
claims tbat. the old company owns
170.7110 shares of unissued slock in Ihe
new company assessed for $853.03, and
will, unless restrained, sell this stock
forthe assessment. If Uie court holds
this sale valid, the plaintiffs claim it
will constitute the total assets of the
company.
The cise came before Judge George
W. Hell at Spokane on May 1 and the
court dissolved the injunction, wliieh
prohibited the new company from
selling 10,000 shares of its slock, hut
continued the injunction prohibiting
the new company from voting -10,000
shares of the stock of the old con.pany
held by L. Hoy Slater and others, the
plaintiffs. By tbis ruling the old com
pany cannot disincorporate without
the consent of the holders of the plain
tiffs to tbe suit.
Lust. Tuesday the plaintiffs made a
new move liy illing a motion for an
injiinclion far broader lhan Ibe one
heretofore issued. This lime the plaintiffs ask fur nn injunction to prohibit
ihe new company from working or
operating tbe Waterloo mine. Judge
Belt signed an order citing the mining
company to appear in court this
week to show ,vhy the injunction
should not lie granted,
In the new inolion it is asked that
tbe court issue an order enjoining and
restraining the new company frntn
working, developing, operating, trans '
I'i'iTiiig, disposing of or incumbering
ihe Waterloo mine and lbe 10slump
mill, anil Jtll buildings, tools and 'in
provenifiils on lhe propeity, which, it
is claimed, nre owned liy the old com
tinny and hnve been pretended to have
Oeen transferred to the new company.
The motion is accompanied by ihe
iflldnvil nf Charles II, Wolf, setting
forth thai, the claim; together witb its
Improvement*, compose the entire
nsseis of the old conipnny, nnd that
ihe new conipany is now working the
property and running it in debt anil
inciimbeiing the properly wilh liens
The property, it, is claimed, is now
under the management of E, W. Tny
lor, an attorney, and not a practical
miner, and it is alleged he will do WOIK
in an unworkmanlike manner and It
unmiiierlike fashion, and Ihe mine wiil
gtently depreciate in value,

Smelting and' Power company, Limit

is believed to be the largest electric air
compressor ever built for uictnlliferoii-
mining purposes in British Columbia
or in the Dominion of Canada, The

The order for the big machine wil'
he placed wil It ihe Canadian Band
Drill compuny of Sherlirooke, Quebec,

It is expected tlmt it will require
about six months to manufacture the
compressor, and that it will lie Install*

It will lie buill in two separate parts of
HO drills each, so that Ihey can be
operated together or separately, Plans

No boilers will be required for the
new compressor, us it will be driven
by electricity, furnished by the Ca«

completed to the camp, a dislance of

An order will shortly bc placed for

In llie course of nn exhaustive criticism of ttle Ilmtnce minister's budget
speech Mr. Dennis Murphy, of West
Yale, cited llgures in support of a
statement thai the government discriminated in favor of its supporters In

amounts expended on roads, streets
and bridges in 1001 with the amounts
proposed to lie expended in 1003, thnl
whilst the government announced u
cut In public works expenditures for
lhe ensuing year the chief economies
were to lie effected in opposition con

A ^  tmmi    9   T    m^tt
The following taken from the Grand
Forks Miner-Gazette hits Ihe nail on
the head:
A visitor to this city told us this
week his impiessions of the country
and ihey were extremely complimentary except on one point. "The worst
thing I find to discourage me ahout the
country," be said, "is the inclination I
Hnd throughout nil eastern B. C. among
merchants to cut their business out of
the local newspapers nnd leave ihem
without sufficient financial support lo
enable litem to get out a good paper.
A newspaper, even more than any
olher business, is entirely dependent
upon the patronage of its local people,
and when they commence withdraw
ing their advertisements it must decrease in quality proportionately with
the decrease tu paironage.   The local

perfect thermometer of lhe state of
husiness in the city in which it is
published, and a poor newspaper near
ly always means a poor town, while
the suspension of a paper which has
been published any length of time
gives a town the worst kind of a black
eye. Look at. Nelson for instance.
The Tribune of that place suspended
aud I Hud in my travels, which take
me all over the province, thai Nelson
is generally regarded as entirely dead,
fm say the people, 'the town must he
fearfully quiet when the. leading paper
has to quit business.' A merchant
who supports his local paper is by no
means doing an actof charity, for even
though he may nut feel that the
advertisement is bringing him proportionate returns lie is gaining hy it as ii
helps to boom the town on the outside
and makes people think it is a good
lively place, thus by helping the town
through the medium of i he newspaper
h'i is helping himself a hundred fold."
Upon Information furnished hy Sheriff Lowery of Republic, Wash., yesterday afternoon Provincial Constable
George Cunningham arrested Frank
Bnusil, a half breed, for the murder of
Charley Hall, uuniher half breed, near
Marcus on the 1st inst.
Last Wednesday Brazil came to
Midway, dQgd jis lie had no money .1. 3.
Flood, livVrynian, of this place, per-
milled him to sleep in tlio stable. He
siitled that lie had walked from I'hoenix, He told of having bad much ex
periencc around livery stables and.
thnt he was ujed to breaking horses,
and ns Mr. Flood bad a numhei of
horses to break he engaged Brazil to
work for him.
Yesterdlty Deputy ShorilT Clarke
of Curlew arrived in town and made
inquiries about a half breed named
Brazil,and I he description so resembled
the man working for Flood that he
was informed that his man wns in
Midway. Brazil hi|d .gone to H"ck
Creek during the afternoon", so tin1
sheriff awaited his return. About six
o'clock he relurned, and as soon ns the
sheriff saw liim he recognized his man,
The information was furnished Provincial Oonstable George Cunningham,
who immediately placed Brazil under
arrest. He admitted his name was
Brazil and lhat he was the man wanted, and consented lo go back lo Republic without fighting extradition. He
was therefore handed oyer to Deputy
Sheriff Clarke, who, in compuny wilh
a man named Kelly, took the prisoner
as far as Curlew lasl night, and today
will take him on to Republic, where
he will be tried on tile charge of minder.
It is claimed that on Ma*. 1st Frank
Brazil, in company wi'h another half
bleed whose name was not learned,
shot and killed Charley Hall somewhere near Marcus, Wash. Brazil's
purl ner went to Republic and gave
himself up, stating tbat Brazil dii^the
shooting | tbat he rode up behind Hall
and shot him through the hack,'the

It is only a question of a short time
until that portion of the Coast-Kootenay; Railway from Curlew to Midway
will be constructed.   This line would
be now being built, but for the scarcity
of laborers.   When this road is built,
most of the spur lines to the different
mining camps will start from here,
making this the railway centre of this
district.   With the advent of more railways into Midway the prices of real

The provincial government is now in
11 lmd way.   MnUers reached a crisis
on Friday when the premier was compelled lo confer with the leader of the
opposition with a view to patching up
a truce.   The governnient is incapable
of proceeding further an its forces are
threatened to he weaked hy the loss of
Aiessrs, Ellison and  Clifford,  who in
all probability will bolt if subsides brunt given to the .Miilwny-Vemon and
Kitltnat-Hazelton roads.   This niakes
it bad for 1 he government to  pass its
railway hills,  which ar» looked upon
ny the opposition  wiih such disfavor.
It certainly looks as if the governtneni
were slterlficing the province when it
otters $5(10 per mile for part of thc
Coast-Kootenay roud and oneinilliui
acres of land to McLean Bros, in exues
of wlia^Mr. Bodwell offered tn huild
the same road tor over a year ago,
Conditions have not   changed since
thai time and tlinre is nn reason whv
McLean Bios, should be made a presenl, of this additional amount of money
and laud. /AlllinU'*h the land grant tu
the Coast Kootenay is absurd in the
extreme it is not as disastrous to the
Sirovince us ihe grant to the Canadian
Northern road, as the former traverses
a country where most uf the good laud
has been already ^ueempled,   while
the latter road travels through a new
country,- sparsely settled, and where
little if any land is held hy settlers,
I hereby giving to the railway conipanj
the  land  to   which Ihe settleis  are
justly entitled, and for any govern
ment to sai rillce the country's wealth
in such  an  extravagant manner is
simply outrageoils and will likely re
suit in the defeat nf the government.

An Incompetent Train Service.
The fact is now pretty thoroughly
established in railroad circles that
when the Oanadiau I'acilic resumes its
Imperial Limited service from coast to
coast, no provision will he made to give
the Kool enay country connection wilh
the fast through trains,
The statement will be received wilh
surprise iu Ihis district, although Ross-
landers will not lie seriously inconvenienced for the reason that ihey will be
enabled to use Ihe American lines via
the Spokane Falls k Norlhern. In
Nelson some objection may he raised,
all hough Nelsonltes could make the
trip to Spokane and si ill reach eastern
points ahead of the -Canadian I'acilic
local trains, which they will he compelled lo take if the Imperial Limited
service connection is abandoned.
In pasl years since the Imperial Flyers were placed on Ihe main line, the
Canadian I'acilic always took particular pains to cater for Ibe thtough passenger Ira Hie, originating In the Kontenays and advertised the sol vice lilior-
ally. The change of front, this year is
Inexplicalile save oil the ground that
lhe through business from the coast
polntH Is sufficient lo lax the accom.
luodatlnn of the Flyers. Even on Ibis
basis It Is difficult to understand why
tbe big corporation shoulil take a step
that, apparently means the abandon-
incnl of this territory to ihe American
"uimIs so far as through   pit
busincsj* is concerned, fur tliis is practically what the move means. Of the
passenger trade original ing in l-Uss
land and district and iu the Hoiindary,
by far I he largest propoitii.n is ihrough
business, and Ihis class of travellers
will never be agreeable to patronising
a local train with the spectacle of ji
limited flyer wbirliiig-"pasr ar various
way stations, The American roads
will, of course, rejoice to note tbe decision to which lbe Canadian I'acilic
luis come, for tbey will havea practical
assurance of all Ihe through business
that is not compelled to go over the
Canadian road. From a sentimental
standpoint the move is unfortunate,
for there is undoubtedly a strong feeling among many persons that a Canadian road should he patronized, other
things lieing equal. The latest move
of the Canadian Pacific entirely alters
matters, and sentiment will have but
litlle weight when weighed in lhe balance with time saved in a transcontinental trip.—Rossland Miner.

Willie's Profession.
When Willie wns a little lioy his doting father saw
But one thing lhat was fit for him nnd
that one wns the law,
"See how his high  brow  bulges,')
Willie's father often said i
"It's as plain as Hon peck's wife is thnt
he hut ft judge's head."
Hut Willie's loving molher somehow
fancied she could see
Thnt a doctor wns the only thing her
son could ever lie.       »
"IIe'.5 so nobjo, und so gentle, and eo
clever," she would say ;
"All, he'll have a splendid practice—I
just know he will—some day."
Willie's grandma told his parents that
his maimer and his speech
Indicated very clearly thnt he ought
lo learn to preach.
So they argued over Willie, of whom
each nf them was proud-
Argued long antl  argued  often and
occasionally loud.
