hm in Mils slaking, is governed by
several material tacts, as fallows:

pass variation of twenty-three
uugrees, thirty minutes, while his
surveyor's field notes tiled show a
survey based on a variation of twenty-four degrees, lorty minutes, while
tire survey in each case corresponds
j exactly with the staking. Such be-
hig my (lading I conclude that tbe
staking was at tlie least not properly
done, nor was it done ut all in 111(10.
3. I come then lo the next staking

In the absence of such statutory provision here the expression stake or

Undoubtedly in the Minerals Act and
Laml Ait it has boon deemed necessary to define a "logal post'1 and bas
been made to include a slump or
tree, but because tho definition there
is made specific as to u stump or
tree being included, I du mil think
it afieets Mie Coal Mines Act Surely
the hi ton Moil ol the Act is to have
some noticeable maik on the gi.uiml

vJTli&He petitioners have brought the

find as a fact that the |H*tlMoners
have taken all necessary steps as
alleged for obtaining licenses. In
my opinion the licenses sliould have
been granted (subject to conflict wIWi
the Cranbrook group and for other
claims named) and these applicants

The Vancouver Province is the Ish-
mai'l of Canadian journalism. Us
hand is raised against everything
thai is not to its own liking, and no
man knows today where ii will stand
tomorrow. Its latest diatribe ls a
sarcastic article on the departure of
Hon. Mr. Lcmit'iix for Japan as representative of the Canadian government, with the idea uf doing all     in
is power to adjust ibe, immigration
differences between the two countries. Instead of being loyal iu Canada, instead of being broad-minded
enough tu treat Uie matter In a fair
and just way, the editor of the
Province must resort to the most
despicable style ot journalism iu the
[utile attempt to belittle the mission
ol' a representative of the Canadian
government. Imagine, il you can, a
special envoy uf England going to
another country being thus attacked
hy a paper uE that country, no mat-
lei what government was iu puwer .
oi what i-apity the paper that cumin.-ninl on the mutter represented,
or what, party llie paper that coiu-
the freedom of the press is often
overdone. It remains for a pakpr iu
Hritish Columbia, tbat. standi* lui
nothing and represents nothing, to
abase ils liberty a.s a public journal
so ns to he a disgrace to the country.      Mr. Ivcmieux did not go    to j
" pan as a Liberal, neither did lie $0
0-quservatlve, but he did
tors at work, if not before. The
building of this road means much to
East Kootenay and to Cranlirook,
as it will give to one of the richest
portions of ihis wonderful province
transportation facilities that will
materially assist in the rapid development of that sit tion.

is such a thing as going too far in
litis kind uf spurt, far enough tu lie
mean, tu he nasty, tu be even crlmi-
hal. Thai should he avoided. There
were some things dune in Crnnbrook
last week ihat if the perpetrators
could be apprehended they should be
punished by the law of lhe Uud.
Enough is enough, hut loo mueh is
too much.
Mr. Itoiirassa was beaten ami beaten badly. Mr. Tourgemi showed that
he was' willing to leave the verdict
to the people of the district he represents!, and the result wan a
strung vote of confidence iu Mr. Turgeon. Mr. Iluiirassa is a mau of
ahilily, but Mr. Bournssn should
not forget that he is not the only
man of ability in tbe province of
Quebec.    Tliere nre others.
No, dear leader, there is no reason
un earth why you should not beep on
boosting Cranbrook and Ihis district.
The young man or the middle aged
mau who is earning a salary In this
district cannot make a mistake by
invest ing a fair share uf his earnings
in laud around Cranhrook. The time
is coming when that laml will be
worth from $50 to $200 an acre. Nuw
is the lime to invest.

point lo an instance where theso
federal members had opposed Laurier
iu Uie house.
"Macpherson talks a great deal
outside of the house," said Martin,
"but, he votes with Laurier in lhc
house.
"The blame,"   suld    Martin, "lies
with the electors of Uritisli Columbia
u und the elections show they are   nol
iu earnest  in this demand for   exclusion."
Martin rapped Mcltr'ule for allowing
Dunsmuir lo defeat his bills. "That
was noi Lnurler's fault this time, although Laurier had veined other
Nala.l acts. The people ol British
Ciibtiiihia, through ils representatives,
had supported Laurier in I mm and
