The case of Lindsey vs. Prydges the
hearing of which has been awaited wllh
Inter, st by all the fruit land agents of
Kl ol' nay. began this morning and will
probably continue for several days.
His Honor Judge Forln Is holding a
I < Hal Besion of the county court for
the hearing of two cases.
Keid vs. Argetllrr Mines was argued
this morning. S. S. Taylor. K. C. appearing for the claimant and R. M.
Macdonald for th" defendant company.
Judgment was ri served.
Lindsey vb, llrydges was then called,
8. S. Taylor appearing for the plaintiff
and   R.  S.   Lennie for the defendant.
Mr. Taylor.  In opening, outlined  the
case as it Is claimed by the plaintiff to
stand.     He staled  that  It   was  a claim
of R.   Kenneth   Lindsey  against   S.  M.
llrydges for $774. lhe balance of a commission   on   a sale  of  fruit   land.    Mr.
Taylor's  ace unit of tin-  transaction, on
behalf of the plaintiff, was as follows:
In April, 19011, after much  correspondence between the parties, Lindsey and
llrydges.   the   former   who  was  then   In
Winnipeg, sent V. C. Maddock, or that
city, to Nelson   with an  Introduction to
the defendant.    The result was the sale
of a block of land for $40,000.    llrydges
had  agreed   by letter to divide equally
with Lindsey the commission of $2,000
Iliyrlges     covenanted   with   Maddock
for a sulo at $1S  jier acre, but entered
$2f> as the price In a written agreement
Haddock then arranged through Llnd
sey for a resale lo the  Fisher-llamiltoi;
company at $2.", per acre.    It was agreed
that    Maddock.    Hamilton and Lindsey
ihould   go   out   and   inspect    the   land
llty.lges   then     refused    to   accompany
them,   bill   made  arrangements  to  have
them   conducted   by    W".   F.    Mawdsley.
Later ho  changed hia  mind  and  Joined
the     party    himself.      It     waa    agreed
among  Brydgea,  Maddock  and  Lindsey
that   the   real  price   of   $1S   should   h<
kept   secret   from   the   Fisher-Haiiilllon
company who were to pay $2f�� an acre
Brydgea then attempted to force from
Lindsey,   by    suggested     threat   of  dls
ch stir.'     to    Hamilton  of  the   facts,  a
promise  of a commission of  $2,000  foi
himself on   l.indsey's   reaale   from   Mad
dock   to   the   Fishei'-llanriltrm   company
llrydges alleges that Lindsey made sue!
a promise.    Lindsey denies It.
Brydgea theii revealed to Mr. Flshei
the private agreement Tor sale to Mad
dock at $1S an ncre. offered to Ignon
that agreement which bad been passed
from Maddock lo lhe FUhor-llamlltor
company, and sold ilireeT to them foi
$1S nn acre.

What proved to he the most interest
ing game of cricket yet played this
season on the recreation grounds took
(dace yesterday between Grand Forks
and Nelson, resulting, after a hard
fought struggle, in a victory for the latter. Nelson has not lost a match this
season so far and has easily the best
team in the upper country. Despite the
bad weather there was a large crowd
down on the grounds for the greater
put of tbe day, between three and four
hundred people being drawn by curiosity or the love of the game. As the
points of cricket are getting to be better
understood it Is being more appreciated
locally. Moreover the players are improving, the batting is steadier and the
fielding far more praiseworthy. Cricket
hoe the great merit as against other
sports, of affording no scope for the
The team that Grand Forks brought
across was the best that has yet appeared on the Nelson ground, and it
was early seen that Nelson would have
a struggle to win. The visitors winning the toss put In themselves and
left the Nelson bowlers, short Ed.
Mason, to struggle with a wet and
greasy pitch on which it was impossible
to stand without slipping and sawdust
bad to be used In considerable quantities'. The Grand Forks players showed
themselves to be careful bats and endeavored to wear down the bowlers by
stonewalling. Huns came slowly and
only 36 were compiled in the hour and
a half before lunch. After lunch runs
were again slow in coming, and at the
end of another hour and a quarter the
Grand Forks team were dismissed for
69 of which Martin Durrell contributed
It looked a fair prospect for Nelson,
under  ordinary   upnetttions,   but   with   a
wet wteket the issue was doubtful and
when   within  the   first  twenty   minutes
Coppen  had  been   sent  away   for  two,
Tregillus and liourke for a duck apiece
and  J.   D.  Kerr  for   nine,   four   wickets
down  for 25 runs and H.  K,  Wade and
J.   Morris  left  to  sustain  the  honor  ot
.Nelson,   four  good   bats  gone   for  practically nothing, the silence in the grand
stand was expressive.    The partnership
proved  good, however, and  before Morris had   been  sent  away  for a  not in
glorious ten, the score had crept up to
50,    There were twenty  runs to get  tc
win  and   five   wickets   to  fall.     Would
Nelson do it? Wade was batting carefully  and   hitting   loose   howling  severely
but   Mahon   was   howling   a   nasty   left-
handed   leg   break.     Rolt   joined   Wade
but was sent away  for four and  Partington   almost   immediately   afterwards
for   five;    seven   wickets   down   for   62
and but three wickets left, two of which
were   for   men   who had   never  played
hefore on the eleven.    Nelson was still
anything  but  safe.    Elvery  then  came
to "the   hat   and   played  far   more   carefully  than usual.    There was little hitting done for an over or so but present
ly Elvery caught a loose ball and sent it
lor four and then Wade got a boundary
for two. topping the visitors' sco.-j. The
game was then over to all intents and
purposes as no second innings could be
played out in the time.    Wade went on
piling   up   his  score,   giving   a   chance
which  was  Imdly   missed  when 55 ami
finally   being   bowled   for   73,   the  best
score yet made this season by any bats
man, and heating the Grand Forks team
off his own hat.    Nelson was at the hat
for   an   hour   and   a   half  scoring   127.
while Grand Forks got 69 in three hours,
showing the freer character of the home
batting.    The detail of play  follows:

Chicago and Alton Case
The declining price of copper, the uncertainty of the smelter situation caused by the shortage of coke, and the
high rate of wages and scarcity of competent labor, are beginning to have an
injurious effect upon the mining industry generally, and a curtailment of operations is, in tbe opinion of many mining men, almost certain to occur within
tbe next few weeks.
A report that the Queen Victoria cop
per mines had closed down was in circulation in the city yesterday. A representative of The Canadian called on
N. J. Cavanaugh, resident director, to
ascertain the facts. Mr. Cavanaugh
"It Is not true that we are closing
down tbe mines. It is true, however,
that we have stopped shipping ore, ant.
have let three-fourths of our muckerc
go. We have six men and are going
ahead with development work. 1 can't
say how long it will be before shipments
are resumed.
"Yes, I can fell you the reason. It is
fairly simple and definite. With the
present cost of labor and the present
price of copper there fa very little profit
in mining. It is only worth while tc
mine the very best ore, and rejection ol
all the rest Involves a waste of labor
and of values. It Is sacrificing a prop
erty to operate under the circumstances.
The Queen Victoria has since tht
middle of last winter employed a force
varying from 20 to 25 men, and has-
been, with one brief intermission, a
steady shipper to the Trail smelter.
Other owners of copper mines have
recently declared that the high rate ol
wages which the industry could stand
when copper was selling at 25 cents a
pound or within a fraction of lt, cannot
reasonably be maintained with the price
of the metal below 18 cents. The most
hopeful feature of the situation is that
students of the world's copper markets
still maintain that there is no valh.
reason for the recent decline in price,
that the relation between the world';-*
visible supply amply justified the recen:
higlL prices and is bound soon to restore

Special Excursion Train Left Rail
Killed, 290 Injured.
Orangeville, Sept. 3.���A Canadian
Pacific Railway special train carrying
over 300 passengers bound for the Toronto exhibition, was wrecked today at
Horseshoe Falls, nine miles south of
here. Six persons, names as yet unknown, were killed and 250 Injured.
The train pulled Into Orangeville one
hour late. Half an hour later the locomotive Jumped the rails on the down
grade of the Horseshoe curve of the
Caledon mount. Five cars were piled
up on top of the locomotive. At Orangeville every seat was fiPed and people
were standing In the isles. All these
cars were jammed together In the fierce
shock. Of those on the train at least
250 were injured, many of them fatally,
and bIx were killed outright. The only
explanation of the disaster so far Is
that the engineers was trying to make
up time and took the Horseshoe curve
at a high speed.

In spite of the heavy downpour of rain
yesterday morning over 30 Baptist
young people lined up at the station
for East Robuon on the opening of the
Baptist chapel there. Though the day
was showery yet all who attended tell
of a most enjoyable time. On arrival
at East ltnhson a dedicatory service cf
the new chapel was held, Pastor Shanks
preaching the sermon. A picnic luncheon was served by the Nelson young
people after which various sports were
indulged, not the least of which was a
football game that will long be remembered.   The line up was as follows:
Bobson���Goal, Vaughn; Fullback, S.
Miller, Russell; halfback, WIckham, H.
Miller; forward, Burfleld, Whitehouso,
Young,   Cookson.
Nelson���goal. Shanks; fullback, D.
Jones, Canning; halfback, F. Waters;
forward, Cameron, W. Waters, Hopkins,
J. Jones.
During the first half, though there
were many good plays, neither side was
able to score. Tn the second half Rob-
son led off with one goal, with which
they were forced to be content. Nelson
scored almost Immediately by a clever
pass from Hopkins to Cameron, en-
ultllng Canning to send the pigskin Hying through the goal. Just before time
was called Nelson scored a second goal,
making them victors of the day.
The ladles of Castlegar, Westley and
Robson entertained to a generous and
enjoyable dinner and are to be congratulated and praised in the highest degree.
A hearty vote of thanks was tendered
them by the visitors who  presented a
The coke situation in the Boundary
is still serious though not so acute as
lt was a fortnight ago. The Phoenix
Pioneer, which spoke quite hopefully
a week ago, gives the lollowiug as Its
latest summary:
"It may be stated this week that the
outlook for an Improved coke supply
for the district smelters is looking
somewhat better, though not, by any
means, all that lt should be yet. Still,
ten out of the fourieen blast furnaces
In Boundary's three smelters have been
In operation this week, and a little
more coke Is coming in than heretofore.
"At the urgent suggestion of the
boards of trade at Nelson and Kaslo.
the provincial governmen sent the
deputy minister of mines, R. F. Tolmie,
to investigate the cause of the coke
shortage. Last Sunday Mr. Tolmie
was In Grand Forks, and the next day
reached Greenwood. Then he came
to Phoenix, whence he went to Trail
and Nelson, and then on into East
Kootenay to the coal fields themselves,
to see the actual conditions and what
truth there is in the statement that coke
in considerable quantities had been exported when British Columbia smelters
were going without It. Mr. Tolmie.
naturally, had nothing to say till after
he had made his report to the government, but there Is every reason to be-
lieve that his investigation will result
in good.
"Taking it all in all, tire Investigation
should be productive of good results,
and the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co..
should be penalized the full $2 per ton,
as called for by Its charter, for exporting coke when provincial smelters are
running short.
"Although the Gran by smelter has
been running live furnaces this week.
It has been with the greatest difficulty
that the B. C. Copper Co. smelter was
able to keep two furnaces In blast, so
precarious was the coke supply. Indeed, last Sunday the entire battery
was banked, and It Is a hand to mouth
matter every day. Manager McAllister
states that things must Improve materially or the plant is likely to close for
some little time.
"At tho Dominion Copper Co.'s
smelter, the three furnaces have been
kept busy, but even then there is no
coke to spare, but they have to hust'e
lt along from Coleman as fast as possible, whence this supply comes. Manager Thomas is now paying special attention to this phiise of the matter."
Chicago, Sept. 3.���District Attorney
Sims will read to a federal grand jury
today the letter from the department of
justice telling of the immunity agreement entered into by the government
and tbe Chicago at Alton railroad. The
letter was written by Attorney General
Bonaparte and waa received ��t>y Mr.
Sims last week.
Further proceedings then will be optional with Judge Landis who called the
special grand jury for the prosecution.
Tbe attitude of the judge .till occasion,
uneasiness to the railroad official, aud
attorneys. He has received a communication similar in purport to tbe one In
the hand, of Attorney, but he haa given
its writer no hint of Its attitude, it la
deemed probable that he will acojalaaoa
in the position of the government and
dismiss the jury. But it ia alao Intimated that before he haa dl.ml.ac* the
case, he will read an arraignment of
the railroad method, and officials that
will be more scathing than the one
which preceded the fining of the Standard Oil Company in the same case. It
is possible that the Judge will refuse to
recognise the agreement and Instruct
.he district attorney Mr prtMsmd with the
case against tha Altaa coanpaay. la
which- all the evidence lor the inspection of the grand jury Is ready.
The federal attorneys, however, evidently do not anticipate such action as
Mr. Sims, chief counsel In the case, la
said to have made arrangements to
leave the city on a belated vacation
tonight. Assistant District Attorney
Wilkerson Is slso out of the city.
The grand jury investigation of the
charges against the Chicago and Alton
railroad In connection with rebates said
to have been granted to the Standard
Oil company, was postponed until September 24.
Llpton in a Squall.
London, Sept. 3.���Sir Thomas Ltptou
and a party of guests have arrived at
Southampton on the steam yacht Erin.
Lipton left Belfast last Thursday for
Dublin and his non-arrival at the latter
port has given rise to rumors that he
had.started for the United States. Sir
Thomas and his guests had a lively experience of Southsea. They had board-
ed the schooner yacht Ceylon and were
at luncheon when a storm arose which
caused the boat to heel dangerously.
Dishes, chairs, etc., wore thrown about
and smashed. The party returned to
the Erin as soon as the squall abated.
It was generally believed that when
court opened today a letter would be
presented from Attorney General Bonaparte, defining the action Intended by
the government against the Alton road.
The railroad company has made a claim
of Immunity, asserting that it was promised by former District Attorney Morrison, that if it aided the government
In good faith in the prosecution of the
Standard Oil company that It would be
exempt. No such letter, however, was
presented In court, either by Judge
Landis of by District Attorney Sims,
the successor of District Attorney Morrison.
When the court opened today District
Attorney Sims said: "I am here, if the
court please, in the matter of the grand
jury Investigation, and on that matter
I have to ask the court, or I wish to
make a motion, for a postponement. In
compliance with the suggestions of the
court made at the time of the convening of the present grand jury the facts
and circumstances In connection with
the matter under Investigation had
been submitted to the department, and
I had expected to be able to report to
the court this morning Its views and
findings. Very recently, however, a alt-
uation has arisen, which In my Judgment makes lt desirable that I have
time to submit to the department certain facts and circumstances In addition to those already submitted. For
these reasons 1 request that further action be postponed for three or four
weeks. I regret the necessity for asking the court for this postponement,
but it seems to me, in view of what I
know In connection with the case, to be
"Is the grand Jury present?" naked
judge Landis. "Not now, your honor.'
"How much time do yon want " "I
think not less than three weeks. It
seeinB to me highly desirable that when
the matter Is again called that we be
able to tako definite action on It. Three
weeks from today will be the 24th."
'You may Inform the grand Jury," said
Judge Landis. "that they arc at liberty
to take a recess until 10 o'clock nn the
morning  uf Sept.  24th."

"There Is the abuse of privileges received from the government itself���the
misuse of public franchises granted upon conditions that they shall be used to
benefit the public. It is the business of
a free government to secure the just
use of such franchises for the public
"There Is also the abuse of the system of government Itself by prostituting representative powers to self-advantage.
"To guard against these abuses and
put au end to them where they exist.
ii e people must he constantly alert.
lu ll -.. ;��� representation of the people
Is of tne essence of the matter. Democracy upon a large scale would in-
evttahly fail were not the people able
to act through their chotv n representatives, it is only upon simple and broad
propositions of policy that the people

"We have had too many men posing

P .lineal leader put in office to do his
bidding. Party organization must find
its holtd of union in devotion to certain
common principles. There are relatively
few communities in which it cun no
longer hope to win public support if its
political power 1b devoted to the advancement of the selfish interests of
its members.
"We fhall always need political leadership. The work of analysis, of careful
study of existing problems, of devising
necessary remedies for admitted abuses.
of representing to the people the course
to be taketi for their protection must be
done. There must be organization in
ord.r that measures conceived to be in
the public interest may have proper
support. Hut leadership and organization to recommend themselves to the
public confidence must be purged of the
vice of self-service.
"I believe that with an increasing proportion of true representation, with increasing and discriminating public discussion, with tT;e patient appliotti m of
sound judgment to the c>nsider:i;i >n of
public measures and wlih the InflSXiblS
determination to end abuses and ��o
purify the administration of government

the blessings of free government than
we have ever hitherto been able to enjoy."

Coke  Exportation.
A citizen of Fernie who is engaged in
the lumber business and has no direct
interest in the coke situation, states
that during August the average shipment of coke from Fernie south across
the Boundary line was from 60 to SO
cars a day. The average contents of a
car of coke Is about 27 tons. It is not
at all certain that the Northport smelter and the Black Eagle smelter in
Montana are the only American customers for coke of the Crow's Nest
Pass Coal Company.
A Troublesome  Prisoner.
Constable McBeath returned from the
coast last evening, after accompanying
Kenneth Murray to the penitentiary. As
q matter of fact Murray has not yet
been taken in charge hy the penitentiary authorities. During the trip down
the prisoner caused no end of trouble
and it required the constant attention
of the two constables in charge to keep
him from committing self-destruction.
When he reached New Westminster he
certainly looked insane and the penitentiary authorities refused to take him
over, declaring that the asylum was the
proper place for him. The doctor at the
Insane asylum was telephoned for, and
while he believed that Murray was insane, he did not feel disposed to accept
him until the proper papers had been
made out. Thus, for five or six hours
Constable   McBeath  drove   around   Now

to Incarcerate the prisoner in the pro-
