DAN LINDEBORG ON THE SALMON RIVER TRAIL
CLAIM ACT USURPS POWER OF COURTS.
The probable course of the action begun by the Dolly Varden Mines
company in an effort to regain possession of the valuable Alice Arm
properties, an action which is being watched with interest by both bench
and bar in British Columbia, was forecasted by R, T. Elliott, K C, leading  counsel  for  the  company.
"It is our intention to show that not only was there no substantial
justice in the turning over of the property to the Taylor Engineering
company in order to assure the Taylor company payment for the railway
constructed by them, but also that the whole of the act passed by the provincial legislature is ultra vires," said Mr. Elliott.
"We will make section 96 of the British North America act, providing
that in questions between the provinces and their own citizens the provincial legislatures may have full power, extending possibly to confiscation, but that in actions between citizen and citizen, both parties have the
right to receive adjudication at the hands of a federal judge, one of the
strong points in our claim that the act is unconstitutional. An exception
to this principle would allow provincial legislatures to hear and determine actions arising within their provinces and thus completely usurp
the judicial function, which, it will be claimed, happened in the Dolly Varden case."
Asked how legislation as faulty, according to his statement, as the
Dolly Varden act, had passed a house well springled with legal talent
during the last session, Mr. Elliott opined that those who were aware of
the fraility of the act were really afraid to oppose it.
"There was," he said, "a rumor started when the act was in committee to the effect that the Dolly Varden company had a big 'slush fund' at
Victoria for lobbying purposes. This to my mind scared off the opposition
and as a matter of fact the objections on the floor were negligible. It
was as much as a member's political life was worth to raise any opposition. The weakness of the act, however, has been apparent to the legal
profession ever since it was passed. The 'slush fund' rumor of course was
untrue, but it was effective. The mining company spent nothing to influence any member of the house."
The Dolly Varden case is the subject of the biggest part of the legal
gossip at the provincial court house and the Hotel Vancouver, where an
imposing array of juridical talent is registered in preparation for the
hearing.
