This is the first time important

If the appeal court this week
upholds the regulations, a further
appeal to the Supreme Court
could not be got until September
and a lot of things may happen
to the Komagata Maru by that
time. So that while technically
there is no further appeal, the
fact is that a decision adverse to

will pretty nearly decide their
immediate fate at any rate.

Vancouver,   June   29- Laden
with a full steel rail cargo for
Canadian Northern railway construction,   the British steamer
Epsom, Captain Hill, 2979 tons,
departed   from Sydney,   Cape|
Breton, on Wednesday last.   It j
is undersood that this shipment
of rails is to be used in the con-
struction of the Vancouver line |
of the Canadian Northern Pacific j
Railway, but owing to the absence j
of a deep water port at the end j
of the Saanich  Peninsula, thej
cargo will be discharged at Port |
Mann   and    trans-shipped   by
means of barges to Patricia Bay. \
The Epsom is coming to this
coast by way of the straits of j
Magellan,  and in the event of j
good weather being encountered j
she will arrive here the latter
part of August
The Epsom will be remembered
as one of the vessels which last
year brought out a shipload of
Portugese laborers from Lisbon
to Honolulu to work on thc
Hawaiin Island Plantations. Her
last voyage was from Cruz Grand
Chili, to Philadelphia, and after
coaling at Newport News, she
shifted to Sydney to take on her
Steele cargo.
The last steamer to carry a
cargo of steel from Sydney, C. B.
to Port Mann, was the Norwegian
steamer Herokles, which arrived
on this coast last fall. The Herokles touched bottom as she crossed
the Fraser River bar and was
subsequently placed in drydock
at Esquimalt for survey.

During the inspection visit of
the grand jury to the provincial
jail, two of the prisoners, miners
sentenced to twelve months incarceration for rioting on Vancouver Island during last year's
strike, received permission from
the warden to make a presentation, says Saturday's New Westminster News.
The men complained that their
sentence of twelve months had
been imposed by Justice Morrison
to date from thc time of their
arrest whereas the committent
warrant was made out from thc
date of their conviction. Justice
Morrison's sentence, according
to the prisoners would cut off
four months of their time and.
effect six men. Representation
has already been made to Ottawa
but it appears that the authorities
consider the fact of the men!
having been out on bail pending
their trial, debars them from
benefitting by their construction
of Justice Morrison's sentence.
J. J. Johnson, foreman of the
grand jury, promised to bring
the subject up, personally, with
Justice Morrison and elicit his
opinion on the matter, for which
the men thanked him.'
The spokesmen of the miners
were Jordon and Whitely of
Nanaimo. The other men involved are Martin, Smith, Serrati
and Gowland.

land is well worth the trouble of

was being logged a small tract
of about an acre was cleared and
planted. It was cultivated with
excellent results, the produce

Nanaimo', June 30th.—Quite
the most important military
manoeuvres ever staged in
British Columbia are now taking
place in this district. The participants are the 88th Regiment of
Victoria and the members of the
Civil Aid Force, who had been
stationed at Nanaimo for thc
past several months. The field
of operations covers the district
between Nanaimo and Ladysmith
and the troops entered the field
on Sunday afternoon. They are
still in action, and the conclusion
is not expected until Wednesday
afternoon, when it is likely that
the manoeuvres will finish with a
pitched battle.
The plan of operation, briefly,
is as follows: Vancouver Island
is in charge of the Red Army.
The enemy, the Blue Army, from
the Mainland, have landed a
large raiding party at Ladysmith
The latter army is composed of
the 88th from Victoria. The Reds
are beleived to hold important
supplies at Nanaimo which the
raiders are determined to capture
6r destroy. v
War commenced at 2 o'clock on
Sunday afternoon with Major de
Salis in command of the raiders
and Major defending the Nanaimo stores. Col. Hall, of Victoria,
and staff of the Civil Aid Force
pf Nanaimo are acting as umpires
and have the entree through all
The troops left their respective
positions at Nanaimo and ladysmith promptly at 2 o'clock. Both
parties bivouacked last night
and had'scouts out. The opposing
scouts have seen each other and
some desultory firing has taken
place. So far there have been
casualties, and as far as known
neither of the main bodies have
sighted each other, Between
Ladysmith and Nanaimo there is
the Nanaimo River to be crossed
and this point forms one of the
strategic positions of the battlefield. Whether either party has
crossed the river is not known,
because the strictest censorship
is maintained on the movements
of their commands-by both lead,
ers. The troops are following
the identical routine of active
service, sleeping in their blankets
strongly entrenching themselves
against night attack and well-
flanked by scouts. Everything
is under service conditions.
With the defenders is a party
of Cadets from Nanaimo, and
they are having the time of their
lives. They are of valuable
assistance, too, and are being
given plenty of opportunity to
show their worth. The Civil Aid
Forces, by reason of their long
sojourn in the field, are standing
the campaign well. The Victoria
boys are also holding up their
end, althongh it must be admitted
they were pretty tired by noon
today, very few of them having
obtained any. sleep since entering
on the field..
The entire manoeuvres are
designed by Col. Hall with a
view to giving the men experience such as they could expect
to get in active service. From
an educative standpoint nothing
could be better.
