Shipments Still Restricted���End of Labor Troubles���Quotations on
Stock Markets.
The week In mining has been without
Incident. Thc labor troubles in the
Boundarj have been the chief feature.
Developments continue but the volume
of shipment ls still relatively small.
The stock market fur the past week
has been rather inactive with prices
but very Utile changed from last week's
quotations. Traaings In Cobalt securities are heavy and the market appears
to bo sold out, Spokane Is much ln
lhe same condition as the local market; business being ralher quiet.
international Coal after its rapid tIbo
remained steady, with almost no fluctuations, but a large number of trades
recorded. Alberta Coal &. Coke was
stronger and In more demand than
since being listed on the market ,an advance of from 3 cents to 4 cents taking
place. H. C. Copper was very steady
at from 18 to J8.60. Dominion Copper
held firm around $6. These two stocks
still hold the attention of the Investors,
and will undoubtedly have a sharp rise
In the near future. Western Oil Consolidated was firm though but few sales
were recorded. Consolidated Smelters
changed but very little throughout. Sullivan ndvanced a point or so, but such
advance failed to bring out any of the
stock nnd therefore almost no business
was offered.

Nothing Doing at Prince
Alleged Northern Port Scene of Idleness���Land Question Still
Vancouver, June 1.���Prince Rupert Is
at the present time the deadest village
on the Pacific coast. Business has not
altogether stopped, but the people who
are living there are putting in time
these days waiting for something to
happen. The suicide ot Mr. K. G. Hub-
sell, the first executive agent of the
Orand Trunk Pacific In the West, was
simply an outward mark of the general
confusion of the situation.
Today 300 people are living ln the
village; when the last sleamer lelt for
Vancouver, 50 ol the!! were engaged in
clearing land. The others are assisting
in local surveys or looking on.
The failure of the representatives of
the compauy to come lo terms wllh the
Indians lor a part of Kaien island for
townsite purposes Is blamed for a good
deal of Uie delay. And the bargain wltb
the natives stands ln much the same position as It did ten months ago. lt la
just as likely as not to continue ln the
same position lor another yeur, though
lhe recent understanding Lhat was come
to with the provincial government may
assist the situation.
Subsidiary companies In which
friends of tho Urund Trunk Pacific and
the government are stockholders and
directors handle everything that is
worth handling within many miles of
Prince Rupert. This Is true of tho commercial as well as the real estate side
of the question, There ls a supply company for lumber, another for provisions
and so on and these control all the
business, lt is stated that for lhe privilege of handling any kind of ajbusinesa
project at Prince Hupert, 45 per cent,
of lhe profits are pulled dowu by tlie
companies which have the northern
business In hand. Mr. Russell, Bince
his removal from the position of executive agent of the railway company, had
his hands full of the affairs ot these
subsidiary companies of which he was
a director, and It was the tangles of
business, when he had so many for the
moment of unsuccessful Irons ln the
fire, that brought about the worry which
caused him to shoot himself. He waB
a straightforward, clear-headed business man, but the game he tried to
handle In the north was almoBt beyond
human endurance. And ln the meantime, with Ihe new town tied up as It
Is, there Is a period of quietness lu
store for the subsidiary companies In
which local people are interested.
Last year It was announced that this
season lots in the new townsite wodld
be placed on sale. Now It is stated on
the best of authority that there can be
no sale this year, for the reason that
clearing has not advanced far enough.
The proposed excursions for would-be
purchasers of townsite lots ln the north
will certainly not be held this season.

Flood In* Fairvlew.
At an early hour this morning residents of Fairvlew wore startled by the
discovery ot a new stream flowing
through the suburb. The water took ns
Its channel a depression usually dry,
which Is always filled with snow ln winter. It Is shallow nnd could not contain all tho water, and consequently
thoro wns an overflow.
The stream was near the residence of
G. G. McLaren.    While the volume ot
water sud the rate of flow were considerable It stayed fairly In its channel
and did no damage.
The only possible explanation wns
that the flume from Anderson creek towards the city reservoir bad burst.
Word was sent to the clly at once and
City Engineer Lawrence set out for the
scene of the break.
The scene of the break ls one mile
from the Mountain ilepsst. Workmen are
busy., repairing lt today. In the meantime Ihe supply of wuter Is considerably reduced.

Nelson's First  Merchant  Succumbs  to
Pneumonia in Northern Town
���His Career.
There was universal expression of
grief today umongBt old-timers when it
was learned that George A. Blgelow had
recently died at Port Essiugtou. The
information came from the Port Easing-
ion Sun, and it was stated that Mr.
Bigelow had died at that place on April
23rd. It appears that he had been recently appointed collector ot customs at
Maple Bay, and while in the discharge
of his duty he contracted a chill which
developed into pneumonia. He was
piaeed in the hospital at Simpson, and
rapidly Improved. He left the hospital
apparently fully recovered, but he took
a relapse and shortly passed away.
George Blgelow was bom in eastern
Oular.o, and came to Holland, Manitoba, while yet a boy. There he kept a
store, bul met with disaster, his premises being burned ouL Then he followed the construction of the C. P. lt.
and amassed considerable money. He
had charge of the C. P. It. store at Donald. In 1890 he reached Nelson. He
came down the river on the steamer
Marion, which was loaded wllh iron and
olher supplies for the Columbia Western. On the same steamer were John
A. Gibson, now postmaster, and John
Nolan, whose unforttnat^jteath two
sears �������, 7au*-��� 3acli t^ft^.t George
and a few ofiiers walked from Sproat's
Landing. Al that time he had $7,000 in
cash, which was a great deal of capital
in thoBe days. He immediately started
a store, and for a time did a lucrative
business. He also, a few years later,
started a store iu Rossland.
lu those daya George A. Blgelow was
the leader in everything that had to do
with the advancement of Nelson. He
was chief of the first flre brigade, and
his store, now the building occupied by
the Bodega saloon, was a general meeting place of old-timers. It might almost
be said that In that building
were planned the schemes which determined Nelson's greatness. Mr. Bigelow was a public-spirited citizen, and in
partnership with John Houston, he
built the Victoria block, the best building up to that time in Nelsou. When
this building was sold ln later years,
George Blgelow received 110,000 cash
lor his share in the investment.
The deceased was one of those who
took a deep interest in the foundation of
the flrat board of trade. The atory of
how 40 delegates arrived from Kaslo
on the night boat and tried to carry off
thc board of trade to Kaslo has been
told many times. Bigelow was one of
the men who started out to rouse the
citizens, but he could only get half a
dozen or so together nt that late hour.
The late Robert Lemon was In the
chair, but he refused to put the motion
for the removal of the headquarters of
the board to Kaslo. He left the chair
and tho meeting adjourned until the
next day. In the meantime the Nelson
membership had increased miraculously,
Blgelow and others putting up the (10
fee that wub required as qualification
for membership. When the meeting
was called the Nelson men outvoted the
Kuslo contingent, so the headquarters
of Ihe board remained here. All that
remains of thut organization now ls the
desk In Cnpt. McMorris' ofllce.
"Those were great days ln Nelson,"
remarked an old-timer today, when
speaking of Bigelaw's death. "As a matter of fact, George Blgclow's jokes were
on everybody's tongtio. His Dominion
Day programme waa a choice piece of
humor, ao much so that tho only remaining copies of that programme aro preserved In the C. P. R. offices ln Montreal."
Bad speculation, coupled with Indifference to business, caused George Blge-
Iow'b downfall. He loBt heavily In a
sawmill he built at Creston. Then he
Invested In mines that never paid dividend.. During the panic of 1893 he had
some money in a Spokane bank, but he
lost that. In the lato '90's he mado
heroic efforts to regain his grip, but
without success. Then he left for the
Slmnlkameen country, whore It was
understood that he wns recovering his
fortunes. Only a few know that he had
aettled at Port Ksslnglon.
The deceased was a perfect type of
the Western man. Shrewd ln business,
but generous to a fault. As one ot his
earliest friend, today remarked,
"George Bigelow was his own worst
Tale of Extravagance and
Hundreds oi Thousands Paid in Ad-
rance for Weapons That Are
Proved Unserviceable.
Ottawa, June 1.���As the Incidents of
the last session are calmly reviewed In
detail the fact becomes more and more
apparent lhat the public money has
been recklessly squandered.
During the last session the Public Ac-
Counts commute began un inquiry
into the Ross rifle contract. The evidence taken was largely concerned with
the character of the rllle, the defects
in workmanship and material, the adverse reports of commissions of inquiry,
its condemnation by the mounted police,
and the other features and Incidents
bearing on the question whether the
weapon was serviceable. The financial
end of the transaction was hardly considered, but stands over for next session. The papers brought down are,
however, decidedly Interesting.
By the contract with Sir Charles
Koss the government agreed to pay
flit each for 12,000 rllles. This contract
was made on the 27th of March, 1902,
the contractor agreeing to deliver the
12,000 rifles before January, 1904. A
second contract was made in 1904 for
20,000. A third contract in 1906 and a
fourth one were made for additional
numbers, all at f 25 each. The Domin-
ion government had been buying the
Lee-Enfield rllle, which ls the weapon
used in the British army for (17.59. One
of the principal small arm manufacturers ln Kngland has offered to supply
the Canadian government with the new
pattern British army rifle and bayonet
cumplete for (20, as Ur. Worthington,
M. P., stated in the house. The American magizlne rllle with bayonet ready
for service costs $16. So it would appear that the Rose company had a fine
But there were other concessions. The
contractor was ollowed to bring in all
the materials and machinery free of
duty for his factory at Quebec. He
was allowed to purchase in the United
States or elsewhere such finished or unfinished parts as could not be made in
his factory and to import them free of
duty. All the raw material was also admitted free. Thus the contractor has
not been obliged to establish a factory
for the manufacture of the complete
rifle. He makes such parts as he finds
convenient, imports other parts, some
partially finished and otherB entirely
finished, completes the manufacture at
Quebec, puts the rifle together and
hands lt over to the government.
The first 12,000 was made In March,
1902, and all the rifles were to be delivered in that year and the next. The
government   began   to pay   ln   March,
1903, and made the following payments:
March 26, 1903   * 25,000.00
August  6th,   1903        37,971.92
February 4th, 1904         25,000.00
March Sth, 1904       33,703.88
March 12th, 1904       40,558.60
July  26th,   1904        60,000.00
July 26, 1904         2,568.11
Total   ��224,S02.51
By the time these advances were
made It was nearly seven months after
the date when the whole 12,000 rifles
of Mark I. order should be delivered,
but not a single rifle had been supplied,
nor was there one for more than a year
after this last payment. Thene amounts
were only ?200 less lliun Ihe full 75
per cent, of the price of tho whole 12.000
rifles, yet It was not until Auguat 26th.
1906, that Ihe first rifle came to hand,
and It waB a year later before 9,000 had
been delivered. The other 3,000 have
never been supplied, although three-
fourths of the price of 2,960 of them
was paid ln thc summer of 1904 .
Some Mark 1 rifles were served out,
but were sent back to the department
and returned to the factory for alterations or repalre. The contraotor was
paid |ir<,000 extra for replacing the
sights of theae rifles after the original
eights had been accepted.
In 1904, a year or so before the first
rifles of the 12,000 order had been delivered, and while the contractors were
drawing pay on the first lot, a second
contract waa made for 20,000 of Mark
II. Advancca were paid on thla order,
and the contractor had received over
$200,000 In advance on the second order,
before they delivered the first rifle of
the 1902 contract. Altogether $426,000
had been paid the contractor hefore he
delivered Ihe first rllle. The total payments on the second order In advance of
delivery of any rifles under that con
tract was $375,000, or 75 per cent, of the
whole price. The first payment on this
order was made on February 24th, 1905,
and the last on December 7th of that
year. This waa very nearly a year
and a half ago, and 3,000 rifles of this
contract remain to be supplied, notwithstanding the provision that no payments
are to be made more than a year before delivery.
On the third order six payments have
been made amounting to $272,441.04.
The first of theae was made February
16th, 1906, more than 15 months ago.
Not a rifle has been delivered under
this contract though the contractor haB
received his three-fourths of the price
of $14,530.
The second and third contracts are
for Mark II. rifles, so-called. There is
a fourth contract for Mark III. rifles and
the lirsi payment of $11,250 on thla waa
made last December, Of course no rifles
of this order have been delivered or
need lo be expected for a year or two.
Altogether, the contractor had delivered when the House prorogued 26,000
rifles, a large number of wblch are
stored away as unserviceable ln their
present condition. These are all paid
for. Seventy-five per cent, has been
paid on 3,000 of the first order not delivered, though the last payment was
made nearly a year and a half ago, A
sufficient payment has been made on
the third order to cover 75 per cent,
of the cost of 14,530 not delivered, and
of the fourth order full 76 per cent, payment has been made on 600. The total
payments to the company, Including extras, amount to $1,087,000 and the advances at the time the House prorogued
were $400,000.
Not one of the rifles so far furnished
has been wholly made ln Canada or by
Canadian workmen. So far as is known
not a single order has been filled on
contract time. The contract was altogether in favor of the contractor and
has been varied to his advantage. The
country has not acquired a factory
which in the event of war would be able
to supply a complete rifle, but is dependent en t>���� United States for the
more dedicate pur.! n. of the rifle.

a special message from the border town
of Tuxtila Guitarei which saya that
Guatemalan troops are throwing up entrenchments and mounting artillery op
poaite the town of Oces. This Information cannot at this time be officially -confirmed, the government knowing nothing of the Incident. The special mes
sage  follows:
"Tuxtilla Guiterei.���We have just re
ceived in this city a message from Ta*

The 25th Infantry has arrived here and
Mexican troops are daily arriving and
being placed along the border.'"
Guatemala City, June 1.���The correspondent of the Associated Press has
interviewed the foreign diplomats ln regard to the arrests made ln connection
with the attempts on the life of President Cabrera. The Spanish minister,
Senor Garciajova, said that two Span-
lards were on trial on the -charge of
conspiracy against the president. The
minister declined to make any further
The Italian minister, Signor Carlo
Magar, stated that he was watching the
eases of the Italian citizens alleged to
be Implicated, and he felt confident they
could make a good defence. The Italian
colony is now assured that every opportunity would be given to their fellow
citizens to prove their innocence when
the appeal is taken trom the findings of
the military court.
Count Von Schwerin, the German
minister, said that only one German had
been Imprisoued, and he had not been
tried. The minister had sent a physician
lo examine this man, who had been declared irresponsible for hie actions.
A enilleate to this effct has been
Hied with the authorities.
The Mexican charge d'affaires haB
also given him a Mexican lawyer. In
view of Irregularities ln the proceedings
against Mandoza, the Mexican charge
d'affaires haB requested the foreign ofllce to furnish him with a copy of the
testimony taken. Mr. Brown, the American charge d'affaires, snys he has not
taken any action ln connection with the
Imprisoned men, but Is watching the
proceedings and is interested ln the
prisoners' welfare.
He added that all the men sentenced
by the military court had appealed to
the higher tribunal. Mr. Brown would
not take part ln any concerted diplomatic action.
While the majority of the diplomats
refused to discuss the matter it was authoritatively stated that no joint action
In connection with the case of the prisoners would be taken.

andSovth America.
London, June 1.���The European poll-
cy in the Far East and the friction be- :
tween the United States and Japan la
engaging the attention of the weekly
reviews of London. The Spectator thla
week comments upon the absence ot
America and Germany from the system
of alliances now embracing Oreat Britain, France, Russia and Japan and
after dealing with the various reasons
that animate America and Germany ln
holding aloof, the paper aays one,object
ot these alliances ls to enable Europe,
plus Japan, to press' Its advice on China
with Irresistible weight. This, however,
as a means of preserving peace ln the
Far East will not be possible unless Europe Is united and the Spectator therefore urges that Germany Bhould be
courteously Invited to enter the European ring, and that inquiry should be
addressed to Washington asking
whether America intends to await
events or Join Europe and Japan in a
scheme for securing in the Far Eaat a
long period ot opportunity for peaceful
and fruitful advance.
The Saturday Review in an editorial
article dealing with the relations between the United States and Japan
draws attention to the great sympathy
of Latin America towards Japan as indicated by the welcoming of Japanese
Immigrants to South America and the
fostering of trade and commerce with
the Island empire. ThiB review then
dwells upon the assumed identical
ethnic origin of the Japanese and the
Indiana of Latin America and says that
perhaps among the surprises ot the future will be the development of a widespread Japanese Influence on the Latin
American continent, based on unsuspected ethnic grounds, which may terribly upset "that manifest destiny" of
supremacy over the American continent
which the American statesmen have
been proclaiming since the early daya ot
the republic.
Big Tract Nur Orand Fork* Acquired
by New Syndicate,
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Qrand Forks, May 31.���One ot the
very largest real estate deals ever recorded ln the Boundary district has
just been completed here, whereby a
syndicate of Chicago and Winnipeg capitalists have acquired some 10,000 acres
of wild farm land on the North Fork
ot Kettle river. The amount paid for
these holdings aggregates 110,000,
which num ls being distributed among
some 25 Individual owners. This newly
acquired land is chiefly covered with
timber which can be marketed and will
in several cases net the owners more
than they will have paid for the land.
It is the Intention ot the company to sot
to work at once to clear this land, when
a great number of men will be employed on the works as well as several
modern stumping machines. As soon
as the land ls cleared it will be planted
with choice fruit trees and subdivided
into 10-acre lots and placed on the
Quake    Somewhere.
Washington, June 1.���A special bulletin issued by tho weather bureau
shows that the seismographs of the institution recorded a distant earthquake
beginning at 3:47 a. m��� today. The

thousand miles from Washington and
consequently the amputate of the motion was comparatively alight. The total duration of the tremors was slightly
over an hour.

The Conservative party will consist of
those who wish for organization of the
British Empire and who do not shrink
from the burdens and responsibilities
entailed by it. The Liberals will include French-Canadians who naturally
have little or no enthusiasm for the
British ideals, and those of British descent who care least about such things,
acd who are willing to continue to receive benefits and make no return.
The Issue is clear and inevitable for
the two parties and cannot be clouded

Saturday, June lit, 1907.
Tbe London Times, commenting on
tbe Imperial Conference just as it had
ened, concluded that while itsdeiinit>\
practical achievement was nothing, it
marked a great gain iu feeling aud
showed a solidarity In the Empire
formed by the growth of common Imperial sentiment.
Sucb an effect the conference undoubtedly did have, in Hritain. It would
a dull imagination that would not be
stirred at the spectacle of a gathering
of Hritish statesmen, two of them representing nations with area as great as
The sitting fn London of representatives of all the self-governing colonies
may be an inspiration and an education
to the home-staying Hritish. It is there
that tbe principal change must come If
the Empire ls ever to be organized.
Uut to all colonial Imperialists, It is
to be feared, Lhe conference has be^n B
bitter disappointment. If there were no
bope of change lt would be more disappointing still, It would mean dlsllluslt n
and the beginning of the end of
It was a poor augury for achievement
or progress when the Canadian government shrank from the use of the
words. Imperial Council, because they
seemed to Imply a much closer relationship than our government desired.
That timidity about words and hesitancy and reluctance to take any forward step, or even anything that nlghl
lead to a forward step, was evident
throughout the conference.
Four premiers had gone to the conference with definite ideas and aspiration, Mr. iDeakin, Dr. JameBon, Sir
Joseph Ward and Sir Robert IJond.
Their ideas may not have been harmonious or even wholly practicable in them-
selves, bnt they were all Imperial. They '
were ready to assume new burdens If
necessary for the  Empire's sake.
It was undoubtedly a bitter disappointment to them to find so many
doors closed. There were certain subjects that the British ministers could
not discuss.
It is not sufficient defence for that at-
tltute to say that tbe British people
have decided for free imports. The
men who led them to that decision must
face the responsibility for that decision
and all its consequences. Hut the tariff was not the only point on which an
understanding was sought. It did not
even take flrst place in the minds of the
Hritish colonial premiers.
What they sought first, and failed to
attain, was a voice in decisions on matters ot special interest to Individual colonies. In the year and a half that has
elapsed sfnee Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman and his colleagues took offlce In
Britain, ihore have been three glaring
instances of Colonial Offlce interference
with self-governing colonies, in Natal,
Newfoundland and the New Hebrides.
The premiers of Uie colonies wished
that some arrangement might be made
whereby their views might be made
known before similar action should be
taken again by the home government
Canada has suffered more than any
other colony, more than all other colonies together, by having her interests
sacrificed in arrangments between Great
Hritain and other powers. It was surely to be expected that Canada's repre-
srntattve at the conference would warmly rapport the efforts of the other pre-
pr*'miers   in this   direction.
Sir Wilfrid did. Indeed, refer to the
matter delicately at a banquet.
But in the conference be entirely
Agreed with the home ministers that
the time was not ripe for eo decisive a
forward step. He feared that lt would
impair ihat local freedom and autonomy which he prized so highly.
We quoted yesterday a short passage
from a Canadian correspondent of the
Times who described Sir Wilfrid as the
sjtecial representative of those who
���"f fa red the conference," as a body
"chiefly formed by but not identical
with, the French element."
The Times' correspondent had probably no other motive than the enlight-
ment of his readers on the attitude of
Canadians to the conference and to the ,
Empire generally. But his decision has
admirably indicated the line of cleavage
between political parties in Canada on
The recent announcement by Brigadier Howell that the immigration department of the Salvation Army would
supply British Columbia with agricultural laborers, was welcome news. The
fruit lands of this province contain
room for homes for millions. All au
thorities agree that there is no danger
of markets failing. On the Canadian
prairies fruit growing may be possible
in favored localities but will never be
profitable. The filling up of the fruit
lands of the province and the growth
of an agricultural population will do
more than either mining ot lumbering
for the permanent prosperity of the
cities and towns. Nor is there any
reason why British Columbian skilled
laborers should fear the influx of new
settlers. It will but create a greater
demand for their own labor.
The boom in Kootenay fruit lands
seems to be greater this year than ever
before, and It has at last begun to affect the values of Nelson city property
Many transfers of dwellings have been
recorded within the last few months at
prices that would have been impossible
a year ago. When the building operations which are assured for this year
are fairly begun the demand for dwellings should be greater still. All signs,
indeed, point not merely to a busy year
but to substantial and permanent
The people of Kaslo, if, as we do not
doubt, the Kootenaian reflects public
opinion, feel grateful to Nelson for its
people's share In making Kaslo's Empire Day celebration a success. Nelson! tes had probably no Idea of earning
gratitude. They have always enjoyed
the holiday trips to Kaslo and will continue to do so. But the Kootenaian is
right in urging that past quarrels be
forgptt^ij and that the two cities on
Kootenay Lake should be not rivals but

Mr. W. L. Grant, of Nova Scotia,
thought the best teachers might be
given an opportunity for travel as a reward of good work.
Mr. Harnett, of the board of education, said the board was prepared to
consider a practical scheme for a common certificate.
It was decided to appoint a committee to draft a scheme of interchange
of teachers and consider the question of
mutual recognlrion of certificates.
The resolution was confirmed at the
afternoon meeting, when Prof. Sadler
estimated the cost of exchanging a
total of 800 teachers at the yearly sum
of ��13,000.

said he yearly had nuuu-rous applica- j

Details  of  Qrand   Forks  Tragedy���No
Serious Ground of Quarrel Between the Sisters.
(Special to The Dally Ctnadlaa.)
Grand Forks, May 31.���The particulars of the sudden death of the late
Miss Emma Donnan, which has cast a
gloom over this entire community for
the past 4b hours were as follows: The
deceased young lady and her elder sis-
ter, Bella, were engaged yesterday
morning in doing their general house
work when they got into a dispute about
some trifling detail pertaining lo the
work; one thing led to another until
Miss Bella Donnan, not regarding the
action as serious, threw a small stick
of wood at her sister, striking her on
the neck; the injured girl, shortly after
she was struck, fainted, and although
Dr. Kingston was at once summoned
all efforts to discover a spark of life
utterly failed. Both these young ladles
were daughters of Mr. and Mrs. Hugh
Donnan, highly respected residents of
the West End of the city. The deceased
young lady was 23 years of age and a
school teacher, having taught school
some two years ago at Eholt. She was
a member of the Presbyterian church
here and a prominent member ln various church orders, while Miss Bella
Donnan, who committed this fatal mistake is some three yeurs older than her
sister. She has been suffering from
nervous disorders for many years, and
it Ib generally believed that she ls not
really responsible for her act In causing her sister's death. Great satisfaction is felt here at the result of Coroner
Kingston's inquest, which was held last
evening, when a verdict was returned
the purport of which was as follows:
"That the late Miss Donnan came to her
death by being struck by a stick thrown
liy her sister, Bella, but not with intent
to kill."
The funeral of the deceased young
lady will be held tomorrow to the public
cemetery. Never In the history of
Grand Forks has a deatl^ occurred under
such extremely painful circumstances,
as hoth sisters were particularly attached to each other nnd were so highly
respected In fhe community in which
they have lived for the past eight years.
W. G. Thompson says his carbon papers are $3.75 per dozen, instead of
$3.50, as advertised yesterday.

college mates and had been engaged in
missionary' work together for years. It

After Many Years.
A case that fitly might have been entitled "After Many Years," was heard
before the chief justice in Vancouver
Mordicai Reynolds, erstwhile of Brandon. Manitoba, sued P J. McPbalen of
Vancouver, for the recovery of a mortgage given in 1S***6 in the province of
Manitoba. The plainuff alleges that the
defendant purchased from him a team
of horses on which he gave a mortgage
of $S00. McPhalen then left the country, and was located by Reynolds in
Vancourer 20 years later. Reynolds
therefore sned for his |S(>0 and for interest, bringing the bill up to about $1,10*0
altogether Judgment was given in favor
of the plaintiff, but Mr Taylor argued
for a non-suit on the ground that at the
time the mortgage was given Reynolds
had a partner named Tripp, and it was
Illegal for him to sue individually for
debts owing to the partnership On
thii point judgment wm r^erved.
