  present Chief Justice of Canada, res-
The Government attempt to obtain urrected by Mr.     Aylesworth, thrust
control of franchise- uml registration upon Parliament against the wishes
PEOPLE YOU MAY KNOW.
British Columbia and
has not yet succeed-
in Manitoba,
(mrt of t Hi t ai ii
ed. Tlie debate on the Election BUI
continued until Wednesday night
with the Opposition sturdily refusing
to accept the measure, On Tuesday
Sir Wilfrid found it necessary to
lake tlie floor uud make u vague nf
for of conciliation. In a general
way the Premier unuonced his willingness to appoint judges to deal
with the lists in the provinces where
intervention Ik proposed. The Opposition had previously stated that It
was willing to accept Bliclj federal
action as might he necessary in any
Manitoba constituencies where Fed-
era,! and Provincial electoral boundaries crossed each other, provided
the re arrangement were placed In
the hands of judges. But only a
few constituencies are in this position, and it becomes clear that the
Intersecting of constituencies is only
an excuse.
THIS  IS T()t)   VAGUE.
What, the machine desired to do
was to take from the two provinces
. which ilo not have Liberal Govern- J
ments, the absolute control of the1
electoral list nnd franchise, assuming power to add and strike off
names, doing this on the eve of the
olection with llttlo notice, and with
every opportunity to repeat the "red
line" outrage of 1904, with extensions into Manitoba and Ontario.
Sir Wilfrid's partial backdown may
he real ur only apparent. He has
line gift fur using language with
double meanings, and the uucertnln
proposition of Tuesday could not be
accepted until the Opposition could
liml out what it meant.
TlilS  IS LOGICAL.
The Conservative position was
clearly doflned iu the debate, The
party was and is ready for a general
lioininion franchise system, treating
nil tlie provinces alike, placing registration in the control of judges,
giving full publicity ami ample notice' right of appeal, and all possible opportunity to obtain a complete
lair, judicial list in which both parties can have confidence. The party
will not accept a Federal control of
fmiichise, applying only to two or
three Conservative provinces, and
used to over-ride ut the last moment
before the election the lists prepared
by Judges tinder provinciul law,
which lists arc known to be as cure-
lully and honestly mude as those of
any provinces which the Government
does not propose to disturb. They
believe that the people of Manitoba
and British Columbia are no less capable than those of Saskatchewan
or Quebec or Nova Scotia, of prepar-
Ing their election lists. They are
able to prove that far more errors
have occurred ami more offences have
been committed against the electoral
rights of the people in other provinces than in Munitobu. Therefore
they stand out against this discrimination nnd resent the insult contained in it.
No INTERFERENCE THEN.
Such is tlie language of the Manitoba Conservative members. Dr.
Hoche, S elm tine r uud Mr, Staples
Such is the declaration of Mr. Borden and his comrades from pther
provinces. They have Shown that
Sir Wilfrid Laurier found no cause
fi ir i ntorforenco because of frunchise
wrongs committed in Nova Scotia
by the domlnerit party; that no action was suggested when the Rothesay election conspiracy in New Brun
swick added more than 400 forged
names to an honest list of less than
10(1 In one district of the constituency formerly represent?d by Mr. Pug-
sley, now one of Sir Wilfrid's colleagues, The present conspiracy,--
for It Is renlly a plot between the
Government at. Ottawa und the
same Manitoba machine which curried out the red line outrage, wus
attempted in IJI0J1 and failed.
To The Honor of the Chief    Justice.
That failure Is nn interesting story
Sir ('buries Fitzpatrick, now Chief
Justice of Canada, was Minister of
Justice. When the scheme, waa
broughl to him to carry through he
rejected it with scorn, and made tt
impossible for anyone else to complete the programme, Everything
hud been arranged, the bill was pre
pa-rod nml printed, but the Minister
of Justice smashed that conspiracy.
When Sir Charles Fitzpatrick guve
plnee to Mr. Aylesworth the Manitoba machine took heart again, and
the deadly pfi-rt of the bill of 1903
was tacked on to the electoral reform measure of 11108.
Sir Wilfrid's Unfortunate Dcuial.
When Sir Wilfrid was told of this
in the House this week he emphatically contradicted the whole story.
Ho declared that no bill had been
printed or prepared aud no such
measure had been contemplated. Tbe
Premier assorted this positively in
the House ou three occasions declaring on Tuesday:
"No act w.-hs contemplated by the
Govornmont and no bill was prepared, tlmt I say most decisively."
(Hansard  |MgQ ">K71. j
THEN A  BILL WAS  PRODUCED.
Vet, after giving the Premier a
chance to reconsider und Inquire and
then receiving a third contradiction,
Mr. Staples was able to produce and
hand to Sir Wilfrid in printed form,
just as it camo from the Government
Bureau, tlm draft of the hill of 1903,
ou Hie sume tines as that  now before
of those Liberal members who are of
the same moral type us Sir Charles
FlUputrtck.
TREASURE SHIP MONTCALM
The luxurious tee breaker Montcalm
now at the bottom of the St. Lawrence, has, not broken much ice during the four years of her Canadian
career, as she haa beep under-going
repairs most of the time when not
engaged in excursion trips.
But the Montcalm hus . made large
breaks ln the Dominion Treasury.
The contract price was 1265,233, and
repairs have cost 1119,377, furnishings, including silver plate and cut
glass $6,853. Total, including maintenance, 1657,725.
A COSTLY BRIDGE.
Arbitrator Schrieber has made an
award to the contractor of the Hills-
boro Bridge At Churlottetown, which
brings the coat to the Dominion of
that structure up to a round
$1,500,000. When it is remembered
that the tirst Government estimate
of cost was half a million, and when
the work had begun parliament was
assured thut it would not cost more
than $800,000, we begin to understand how the Transcontinental is
costing two or three times the Government estimate. It is wise to
multiply by two, and safer to multiply by three, any advance statements
of the cost of work undertaken by a
Laurier Government.
COLONEL   ANDERSON TESTIFIES
Commissioner Cassels investigated the Department of Marine on
Monday and Tuesday aud then quit
for six weeks. It is suggested that
when be gets through with his Exchequer Court business-it will be vacation time and that the inquiry
will be resumed towards the end of
the year, perhaps after the elections.
The Commission has made some progress, for the first witness called from
the department was tbe chief engineer, and he distinctly and emphatically stated that he shared the views
of Commissioners Fyshe and Basin
in regard to "lack of conscience" in
purchasing certain supplies. Colonel
Anderson baa been in the service a
third of a century ant has held the
position of chief engineer since 1880.
Down to a few yeaVs ago he had
charge of the lighthouse buildings
und equipment, buoys; and other aid
to navigation.? Then the control of
lights, buoys and everything ln that
connection, except the construction
of buildings was taken away from
him and given to J. V. Fraser for
whom the new offlee of Commissioner of Lights waa created.
A Good Change for tne Contractors.
Now began a career of extravagant expenditure in - various directions. The Merwin contracts, some
of which have been exposed, resulted
in thnt middleman receiving over a
million dollars from tbe Dominion
Treasury. About the same amount
has gone to T. L. Wilson's Company
for buoys, and large amounts to
another company promoted by Mr.
Wlltson. which sells carbide to tbe
Government. Col. Anderson declared
his firm belief that contractor Will
son's influence was used with the
Government to have Mr. Fraser
placed in charge of this spending
branch. The Chief Engineer himself
hud reported and protested against
the wholesale and expensive changes
which resulted in large contracts to
Mr. Willson. Tftese large deals
could not have been made had Col,
Anderson remained In charge. While
he stated that he bad no proof of
dishonesty on the part of Mr. Fraser
In the matter of these contracts, he
could not help entertaining suspl
clous, Thin witness did not volunteer such testimony. In fact he urged thnt his suspicions should not
be given as evidence, but since
counsel insisted upon his giving
opinions he did ho. They were based
upon the general view that the ex-
truvugent expenditure and tbe unjustifiable contracts began when Mr
Fraser took charge. He had a
strong conviction that Mr. Fraser's
promotion wns due to the contruc
tor's Influence.

EARLY  CLOSING.
Editor Prospector.
Dear Sir:-
Allow me to suggest through your
columns the advisability of some attempt being made to secure for the
trades-people in our town an early
closing duy once a week through the
summer. I have no doubt the majority of the business men would
gladly welcome such n proposal, and
that some arrangement that would
suit the wishes of ull concerned
could be adopted. It is particularly
desirable that those who serve us so
well should have more liberty during
the warm weather, and more time to
enjoy the best season of the year.
A good long walk, or u drive, or a
game of ball would go a long way to
make life happier, and it would certainly make the week less monotonous. It would be well for us to
avoid the bud habit to whioh many
of us are indicted, viz; doing our
shopping just before the stores close,
this is causing unnecessary trouble
and work, and very often all through
our own carelessness. 1 most sincerely trust that the business meu
will tuke this mutter up, und thnt if
some plan can be udopted to close
one day a week ut un curlier hour,
the Saloons will have the courtesy
to close the burs also, and thus give
the Bar-tender a chance to get some
fresh air too.
I am. dear Sir,
Yours faithfully,
Robert Hughes.

EXHIBITION GAME.
A picked nine defeated the C.P.R,
Shops on Wednesday evening 111 tol3
in seven innings. In the first inning
Cranbrook scored four runs. The
(' P.R. played good ball after the
first Inning, but their fielding was
bad, this muy be accounted for by
u number of extra men who filled In
to make up the nine. Matthews
was the star with the stick, knock
Ing out a home run In tbe sixth,
when the bases wero full, bringing In
four runs.

A number of buse. bull funs, played
a rattling game of bull on Monday
afternoon, for the purpose ol assisting financially the Cranlirook City
Baud, und everybody who donated
a two hit piece to the $50 that was
collected, received full value for his
money. The game wus snappy and
good, ami was only bagged by the
winning team in the last momenta
of  play.
In u free hitting game played on
tho Recreation grounds, the Lean,
long-legged aggregation of bull funs,
defeated a hot bunch of "fat un's."
Tho Lung-legs won tbe game in tho
last half of the seventh innings.
ln the early part of the game, it.
wus the "fat un's" who mude the
rooters and funs howl with delight,
aud who were slated to win.
Hoggarth, toed the plate for the
heavy weights, and swatted a single
that gavo him four and a half minutes to reach first, a base hit hy
Ikey McNeil, n collar button vendor,
advanced the giant Hoggarth to
second, and Ikey collared first with
a desire to stop there. Phillips was
fanned out, and Grandmother Yean-
die knocked out a base hit, which
was fumbled by Slim Beach at 2nd,
and two ton of moving flesh panted
in to the home plate. Elmer, the
irator of the bunch, mude u base
hit, nnd Shriner Morris who was too
proud, or fat, to run, walked to
tirst. Fink, of Hose 1, picked up un
inch nozzle, nnd struck snfe for n
single. At this stage of the game,
the Lean un's put the fat un's out
in one-two order.
Now the Leans line up to but.
Jones, catcher for the Leans, who
has a natural penchant, for fowl,
was tirst to but. Ho showed that he
hud a wonderful nerve, for he wus
the only mun in Cranhrook that hud
courage enough to run buses with
underpinning that looked like a
couple of Blackthorn sticks.
Jonos, Patten, and Laidlaw, the
"braw laddie" from P.E. Island,
mude safe singles, while Miss Nancy
Beach was fanned out. McLean,
swatted the ball for two bases, and
three shadows flashed ucross home
plute, unseen by Grandma Yoandle,:
the shadows being in line of a wagon
tongue held hy the mascot. Grubb 1
und McDonald passed to the benches I
so that they could he seen by the
Ladles who witnessed the game.
Yeandle and Elmer scored for the
Fat un's in the tirst of the third,
and the Lean and lanky all died nt
the Blurting post. I
In the last half oE the second, the
Leans batted out four runs, broaV
iug tho heart, as well as the wind of
the hurley giant who wns pitching
for the "fats".
In one-two, a base hit, then three,
the "fats"  trotted to the outfield
In the fourth, Grandma Yeandle
started the run getting, and with
the whole line up of "fat sides" at
the but, five runs were made. The
Leans, lu this inning fell into a nest
of goose eggs.
Thero was war in tho fifth. The
elephants getting what was coming
to thom, which was ono run.
The "Lean un's" with blood in their
eyes, selected wagon tongues that
had no holes in them. They swatted
the hall to the right field, to left
field, in the air, on the ground, with
not u fat-man to take them in. Seven nice lean runs in this inning gave
the "long-legs" a cinch on the game.
In the sixth, the heavy weights,
having lost at least twenty pounds
of avoirdupois, the "Fats" went in
to win the game or die in the last
ditch. Hoggarth, the batting giant
of the team funned out. Ikey McNeil started the fireworks, nnd the
"Fat un's" walked, trotted, and
rolled along the base lines until they
had seven runs scored. With the
fans howling with delight, the band
playing" Up in a balloon Leans"
the score lit to 17 in favor of the
"Fats", the Leans went to the bat.
Beach, who hud been struck In the
bread basket by a hot one just off
the bat in the previous inning, got
frisky und sent n grass-cutter down
centre lield for a single. Dune. McLean swatted the bull for two bases,
McDonald astonished himself hy hit
ting the bull tor a single. Three
men on bases. Then Ward, the leanest of the bunch, who would make u
handsome ornament for a poor widow's back yard as a clothes pole. He
picked up a wagon tongue, that was
considerable bigger round than his
leg, und funned out twice. Two
strikes und three bulls yelled the
umpire. There's a hole in the Imt,
shouted Hoggarth, but Mister Ward
was "Casey-at-the-but". He swatted
tho ball for two bases, bringing in
three runs, winning tbe game for the
Louns. Mr. Wurd's legs guve out.
four and a half feet east of third
base, he got killed, which stopped
further run getting, for the leans.
Chief of  Police    Bow    umpired  the
game,   but     his   knowledge of   ball
playing    being    limited  to    catching
thieves,   nnd those     who take "high

jurisdiction over the eastern purt of
the system as well us the western,

garding the dosing down of the
shops at McAdam Junction,the officials of the company say that these
shops will be opened the beginning of
next month and that the temporary
closing down is caused simply because of the big drop in the receipts
which  necessitates rigid economy.
They pointed out tlii.-) morning Lhat
the cutting down of expenses was
not confined to the C.P.It., the G.T.
R,. owing to continued dropping in
traffic earnings having continued

POLITICAL   ITEMS   OF   INTEREST
Those Liberals who rushed to the
defence of the Aylesworth franchise
amendment Bill, nnd were quite certain that it was "just what the doe-
tor ordered," must be puzzled to decide how they shull square them
selves with their readers, now thut
Sir Wilfrid Laurier has determined
to imitate Davy Crockett's coon uml
"come down."
And    now    we ai
wicked Tories of
prefer voters'  lists
appointees of that
c told that the
British  Columbia
made up by the
desperate  person
ailed Richard McBride by those per
sons who dare breathe his name, to
lists prepared by the judges. It is
unfortunate for some newspapers
thut people have memories. Every
body in Victoria who knows anything ubout the mutter at all knows
that the objection raised by the
British Columbia Conservatives wn*s
to the preparation of voters' lists on
the eve of a general election by the
appointees of the Liberal candidates
ut that election. This was the
abominable thing that Mr. Ay les
worth, Hided and abetted by Mr.
Templeman, tried to force upon us,
and that Sir Wilfrid Laurier has l»een
compelled to abandon owing to the
determined opposition led by Mr. H.
L.   Borden.      Victoria   Colonist.

Kernie, May 28, -The May term of
the East Kootenuy ussize court convened here on Tuesday, With Judge
Irving of the supreme court presiding.
The ducket is u long one some in
terestlng cases are to be disposed of.
Beside the local bur, there ure
many attorneys from outside points
in attendunce J. A. Harvey, K.C.
of Crunbrook is acting us Crown
prosecutor, uml Messrs Mucdonuld
and Thompson ure also here from
Cranbrook. J. H. McNeil, of Von-
■ouvpr,    and  S.   S.  Taylor of Nelson
ue hmong the visiting lawyers.
The Petit and Grand Juries were
sworn in on Tuesday, and the tirst
criminal cuse to cume to trial was
that of the Crown vs Frank Sheriff,
who enme     up for a new   trial on a
harge of rape, of which he was
found guilty at the October assizes,
and sentenced for life by presiding
Judge Morrison. A now trial wus
granted on the ground of .insufficient
instructions to the jury. L. P. Eckstein and Sherwood Herchtner up
peureil for the defendant, The jury
brought in a verdict of guilty of
committing  an indecent assault.
The Grand Jury brought in true
bills in the Mullins murder case, the
McCaffray forgery case and the case
of  ndibery  against  Blue   Jones.
McCaffray was charged with forging the name of W. L. Whitney on a
Dominion express Co., order for
$14,70; contradicted his own defence,
and the jury brought in a verdict of
guilty.
The cuse of Blue Jones, charged
with robbing Frankie Smith, a keeper of a house in the red light dis
trict of Kernie, of $6.40, was defend
ed by H. W. Herchmer.
Blues name is a little misleading,
his color being what is commonly
known as black uud the complaining
witness is u dark und dusky maiden.
As the jury could not agree on
this cuse, nnd were discharged, it
seem that the evidence wns as mixed
in quality us were the chief actors
in color.
Another revolting cuse in which a
young man mimed Dunlop is charged
with the seduction of a little girl
just over fourteen, is occupying the
utteution of Judge and jury today,
and still another cuse of the same
nature It is snid will be up for trial
ut this term. There are scores of
dissolute, depraved, women in the
red light districts of the towns in
the Pass and it is suid that their
presence is a necessity for the pro
tection of innocent women and chil-
Iren but recent developments would
indicate thut the numbers of the
brigade of protectors fall below the
requirements,

COURT    PROCEEDINGS.
Speeiui to the Prospector.
Kernie, May 29.—The second trial
of Blue Jones charged with robbing
Krankie Smith took place yesterday
and resulted in nn acquitnl.
It is presumed that Jones can now
pny out the balance of the $6.15 in
liquidation of his debts, And Krankie will remain a dimeless dinkey
damsel, until she can recuperute financially. It is to be hoped thnt
her business will keep pace with the
debt contracting tendency of "Blue"
so that he will not have to extract
his powers of transcersion to other
citizens of the town.
Financially the acquital turned out
to lie a good thing for Blue's creditors,  but morally, well never mind,
business  is  business."
The cuse of the Crown vs Powers,
charged with perjury is now occupy
ing tlie attention of the Judge ami
jury, with J. A. Harvey, K.C, pros-
icitting und G. H. Thompson defen

facts which show them to be a

in the bands of boodlers, political
thieves, ballot stuffers and corruptionists. These facts are patent to

•Uud a short time anil denied tlmt he
bad anything to do with Eraser's promotion. He, however, made the Interesting statement that when he organized the Company, whloh sold carbide to the Government he Beoured for
himself 940,000 worth ol Mock in payment for his patents, and of this he
gave $10,000 to the late Hon. -James
Sutherland, at thut time member without offlee in the Laurier Government,
Mr. Witlsoii'BStatement is that this *10-
000 stock was a payment to Mr. Sutherland for the services of the latter In
ludueing the Kronson family to take
stock in the concern. Hut it will be
seen that with one of tht! rout rafting
firm in the Ministry might uot be necessary for Mr. Wil hum to personally
interfere lu securing the promotion of
Mr. Fraser to the position of superintendent of Lights. Mr. Sutherland became Minister of Marine in 1902 aud
was afterwards Minister of Public
Works.
THE CONTRACTOR IN CHARGE.
In 1904, began tbe larger and more
profitable contracts for buoys out of
which Willson'sfirmhasbeunreceiving
tome $250,000 a year, ll wus lu connection wilh these contracts that. Commissioners r'yshe and Itazin made their
comments about WOlson "wheedling"
the department into buying buoys
"whether thoy were wanted or not."
The Commissioner* quoted from correspondence to show how these goods were
"unloaded" on llritish Columbia, how
Wlllson ordered the officers about "as
if they were his owu employees." uiul
how much more anxious the department
was to assist the contractors than to
guard the public Interest. Col. Anderson, Chief Engineer, appears to be of
the same opinion, through he testifies
that he never discussed the matter with
Mr. Pysheor gave liim any information.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier must have known
that his colleague was interested in one
of these Willson contracts, but ho does
not appear to have intervened in the
matter.
A ONE-SJDED INQUIRY.
lathe Hod gins' Transcontinental inquiry, Messrs. Geoffrlon, Maedonald
and Carvell, composing tbe majority of
the Committee, are not giving the
accuser much of u oh unco. The Gov
ernment, which hus a Minister of
Justice, a Deputy Minister, a Solicitor-
General and a Solicitor to the Transcontinental Commission, is paying a
Montreal lawyer to appear before the
Committee us counsel for the accused
Commission. Hut so far the Committee
and the Government has refused to provide for counsel for Major Hodglns. who
is presenting the case. This engineer
is asked to produce his witnesses and
his evidence to a eommirtee of lawyers,
with a la-vyer against him paid by the
Government. Of course he requires
counsel, but he is allowed to provided
one at his own expense,
A HIGH-HANDED MAJORITY.
Secondly* counsel for Major Hodglns
is not allowed to present his case in his
own way. He asked for the production
of engineers' reports and other papers,
proposing after examining thom to call
witnesses aud proceed with the evidence. The majority of tho Committee
refused him this ordinary privilege, insisted that he shall take up charges  in

witness. So high handed are the Government meiubol'9 ol the Committee,
that Mi*. Barker* conservative member,
declared that ho hud never lu liis life

in the case, or known a court t" dictate

present his case or lu what order ho

Majority members of the committee
have so far forgot Lou their judicial
position that they speak of the charges
which they are to examine, as attempts
to "malign" the commissiou, and oue of
them has declared that tie knows Major
Hodglns cannot prove his charges. Mr.
Carvell ami Mr. Maedonald have stilted
that they are not much concerned
whether the contractors' accounts are
padded by wrong classification of matter
excavated, and that main thing is to
make Major Hodgtlis retract or prove
the accusation thut tlie commissioners
arc knowingly parties to the fraud. As
Major Hodglns has stated that theover
payments will amount to from $'2,000,-
000 to $4,000,000, < Committeemen Marker
uud Lennox will probably have tlie
support of the taxpayers when they say
tlmt this is a mutter of considerable
public interest, and ought to he
thoroughly Investigated. The examination stands over until Tuesday nexl,
and iu the meantime Major Hodglns
has been several times invited by the
majority members to retract, uud hus
beeu repeatedly told that he has brought
all his troubles on himself, since no one
asked him to rush Into print with his
story. It is evidently intended that any
other officer who thinks that he sees
fraud going ou iu Govern mon 1 contracts
shall in- warned by ihe treatment ofi
Major Hodglns that he had better hold
his tongue.
