Appeal of  Canadian Collieries
(Dunsmuir) Limimited v.
London, July 3—The Privy
Council today allowed the appeal
of the Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir) Limited vs. Dunsmuir and
dismissed the cross-appeal. These
actions were concerned with the
construction of an option to
purchase mining property on
Vancouver Island,
The action arose out of the
purchase four years ago by
Mackenzie & Mann interests of
all of the interests held by the
Dunsmuir family in the Canad
ian Collieries Limited. The
purchase price was understood to be eight million dollars.
Before final settlements were
made numerous disputes arose
between the parties. Among
these were claims made by the
purchasers of the colliery
interests to certain colliers plying
out of San Francisco, and two
huge piles of coal which were
stored on the C. P. R. wharves
at .Vancouver for use in strike
or other emergencies, containing
some thousands of tons. The
buyers also claimed the amount
of money standing in the bank
account at the time .the deal
was arranged, "but which was
paid out by the declaration of a
dividend to the former owners
immediately before possession
was given to the new owners,
Mr. Dunsmuir, on the other
hand, claimed an accounting of
all the profits during the time
that elapsed from the time the
collieries were sold until payment
was made. The two cases were
fought out at joint hearings in
all the Canadian courts before
going to the Privy Council. The
judgement of the Privy Council
establishes the right of the
purchasers of the Canadian
Collieries to the vessels and coal
piles, which Mr. Dunsmuir had
with-held on the ground that
they were his private property,
and not part of the colliey company'- assets at the time the
transfer was made. A sum of
over a million dollars was involv-
ed.in the dispute.
On monday Premier McBride
at Victoria gave an unqualified
denial to the story that there
would be an election in British
Columbia in the autumn, probably in August.
"There is absolutely no truth in
the story," declared Sir Richard.
This denial is taken to indicate
that the government will adhere
to its original proposal to take at
least one more session and quite
possibly two' It is not required
to go to the electors until after
the session at the beginning of
1916, although in certain quarters
it was suggested that there might
be an election in the autumn of
1915. At all events it is realized
that a provincial redistribution
bill will be passed before the
next Bi itish Columbia election.

Before leaving on his trip
thrqugh Northern British Columbia, Friday night of last week,
Hon. W. J. Bowser made a
statement to the Province regarding a complaint voiced by
Mr. Robert Foster of the United
Mine Workers before the Trades
and Labor Council on Thursday
evening. Mr Foster alleged that
some of the miners sentenced
after the riots in Nanaimo have
been held in jail beyond the legal
time. Mr. Foster said he had
complained to the Attorney-
General hy letter but had received no reply.
"I have written to Mr. Foster
but doubtlessly, he had not
received the letter when he
addressed the Trades Council,"
said Mr. Bowser last night. "I
am .quite sure there has been no
mistake by the warden of the
provincial jail," continued the
attorney-general. "It is to our
interests to get rid of the prisoners. We want to get them away.
If an error was made it would be
the easiest thing in the world to
get them out on habeas corpus.
I have no doubt that Mr. Bird,
counsel for the miners, would
quickly see to that.
'.'But apart from the legal side
of it, I would like briefly to outline the facts. All the men sent
to the provincial jail have been
released except five. It wa
agreed between Mr. Taylor for

authorities found evidence today
that   Arthur Caron,   who was
I killed  with three others,   had
used his apartment as a centre
for the distribution of inflam*
matory literature and that it was
filled with   death-dealing explosives.
A small printing press, revolutionary pamphlets and circulars
an electric dynamo, two electric
batteries, cartridges and bits of
steel were among the articles
uncovered, which tend, in the
opinion of the police, to show an
anarchistic plot. The demonstration, halted by the bungling

an infernal machine for its
mission, was planned against the

authorities are working.
Two of those killed in the*

demonstration inaugurated

The woman lived in an apartment

We should have strong faith in its possibilities and
pull together with even and steady stroke. An
important feature is to advertise the city, speak
good concerning it and show forth its excellencies,
save your money and when you spend it, spend it
at home. Some of it will be sure to come back to
you. When able to build, build at home and encourage your friends to do the same. Encourage
everyone to come and live with us. During the
past few months many strangers have settled with
us through the encourgement of friends here.
They are good citizens; they will build or buy
substantial homes, and take an active interest in
the general welfare of the town. Keep your
business to the front, and every interest of the
town on the observatory, to be seen by the world.
We presume that every citizen of our town is,
or ought to be, desirous to see it advance in all
the interests that pertain to a town of thrift and
enterprize. Again we assume that if you, who
live in Cumberland, make no effort in this direction,
who, if there are any benefits accruing therefrom
would be the recipients thereof, we do not believe
that our neighbours, who have no particular
interest in our welfare, would be so very mindful
of us as to give us a boost by investing a few
thousand dollars for our good, or start any enterprize that would be for the upbuilding of our town.
If a town is*, ever built up and placed in a growing
condition it will be directly or indirectly due to
those who live in it, and if you wish to know the

started as far as it is at all consistent, elect good
men to office, advertise in its newspapers, be
courteous to those whe come among you and
never let an opportunity to speak a good word
about it pass. Remember that every dollar
you invest in a permanent improvement is that
much money at interest and is that much towards
building up your town.
There is no quicker way to take the life,
growth, and energy out of a town than for its
citizens to be constantly holding up the dark
side of the picture to the gaze of the inquirer. II

Proposal to Extend  Hour* for
Voting on Election
It is not improbable that when
the next general election is held
the polls will not close at 5 o'
clock, but will remain open until
7 or 8 o'clock in the evening, The
committee of the House which
last session considered amendments to the Electoral Act tcok
up this question as well as the
proposal that election day should
be a holiday.
There are some objections to
the latter proposal because it is
feared that it would lead towards
disturbances. The possibilities
are that the prosposal to make
election day a holiday will not be
adopted, but that the hours for
voting will be extended. This will
give an opportunity to employees
of factories and offices to vote
after working hours if they are
not given an opportunity to do so

Of course Bevan was supposed
to play the Cumberland team,
: but judging from the following
i team we think that Bevan versus
! Vancouver Island would be nearer
the mark, seeing that their team
was as follows:—

J. Walker, goal,
S. Jones, c. h„
F. Slaughter, 1. h.,   "
E. King, i. 1.,
Out of the above eleven players
five of them are not even residents of Cumberland, so we fail
to see how it could be a Cumberland team.
The following is the list of the
Bevan team:-

We would like to draw your

you will notice that they are all

Vancouver, B.C.
Dear Sir,—
Knowing you to be an expert
judge in football matters, I am,
taking the liberty of an old
friendship to ask your decision
on a dispute -which occured
yesterday at the Union Bay
There were four teams entering
the football competition, namely
Union Bay, Bevan, Extension,
and Cumberland. Union Bay and:
Bevan played the first match,
Bevan scoring three goals to nil, i
with one man, James Forrester,
injured in this game. Extension
and Cumberland played next,
Cumberland scoring four goals to
nil. This left Cumberland and
Bevan to play in the final.
The time set for the said final
was5p,m. The writer on getting the team together, found
that James Forrester, the man
injured whilst playing against
the Union Bay team, was unable
to appear on the field to play the
final with Bevan (his own team)
against Cumberland, and one
of the reserves (Harry Tappin)
was put on the field to take his
place. The Cumberland team
immediately refused to play,
claiming that Bevan had no right
to put a reserve man to take the
place of Forrester.   The writer
and the captain of  the Bevan
team,  invited the   referee and
sports committee to examine the
injured man, but this they re-'
fused to do.   Bevan refused to
start with less than eleven men,
or was willing to play ten men
on each  side,  but Cumberland
refused this, ____^___^^______
I may state that there were no< .i.a*/.!* * „ . * *-,
specifications laid down, outside: WOOL* for SALE
the ordinary football rules, to be
guided by.
Now the point is:   Is Bevan's
contention correct? ,
Thanking you in anticipation1
for a detailed and open report
on this, which will* be greatly
appreciated by, }
Yours truly,
(Signed) Hugh Thornley

Dear Sir,  -
Replying to yours of July 2nd,
re dispute Union Bay Sports.
In the absence of any particu-
lar rules to govern the eligibility
of players, and unless it wast
specifically stated that only those j
playing in the qualifying rounds |
would be permitted to play in'
the final, the ordinary Football
Cup Rules would govern, and the
Bevan F. C, should have been I
allowed to play the reserve man.
Of course, the objection made
by Cumberland was probably on
account of the    fact that the
reserve man was in better con-|
dition through not having taken j
part in any previous game that i
day, and such objection would in
a manner be justffied.
However, as previously stated, |
in the absence of any   specific
rules to govern such a competition, the ordinary Football Cup
Rules should hold good,
Yours truly,
(Signed) David Leith.
