as a sule ol  liao.ouu acres for    one
���liar  an acre,   which  land   the    pur-
Ichasers at once put  In the market at
[mx 10 ten dollars.   There was no com-
| petition, and no one except the buyers
knew  the land was  for sale.    On    the

Victoria, June 15.���At a meeting of
ihe provincial executive held yesterday
it was leclded to bold a Judicial inquiry
Into tho charges made by the Vancouver World In connection with tbe lease
of two lots to W. .1. Pendray & Son at
Sehls Polnl. It was charged thai Mrs.
.lames Anderson had access lo tbe tenders in tbe office of the chief commissioner of lands and works, or had obtained Information front officials In
that department which enabled a higher tender lo be placed in competition
for the property In question. It is understood that a Judge of tho supreme
court will be asked to hold the Inquiry.
The Colonist says editorially: "In
deciding to ask for a judicial Inquiry,
Chief Commissioner Hon. R. P. Green
has taken what will be regarded as the
only sallsfactory course to pursue.
There will now be an opportunity of
examining all witnesses whose evidence, directly or indirectly ulfecls the

be left unturned to lay bare every clr-
cumsfancc calculated to throw light on

made. Tho government, we feel assured, has nothing to fear as a result
of the most scrutinizing Inquiry, and
If (here he those who believe the department of lands and works Is Implicated In wrong-doing, they will now

troth of what has been charged. Tbe
government is therefore to be congratulated upon Its prompt action to place

Grand Forks, Juno 15.���The case of

past two weeks, was decided yesterday
by Police Magistrate Cochrane, who
adjourned the case from fhe morning
llll Ihis afternoon, when be will give
This case. It will be remembered,
wns a prosecution brought at.the Instance of the customs authorities for
an alleged Infraction of tbe custom
laws, it being claimed that Jones hnd
undervalued a team of horses when he
had I hem passed al Carson some weeks
ago. This case has created great local
interest. Mr. Jones says that, if the
court decides against him he will appeal lo Ihe county court.
The government wagon road to the

There is considerable consternation
among the hotel men who are applying
for liquor licenses up the North Fork,
as they have Just learned of tiie operation of an amendment to the license
laws passed by the provincial legislature ihis year, the law now being tbat
where there Is a settlement of 5oo people three licenses can be granted, and
for every additional one thousand people one more license. Heretofore it
was entirely discretionary with the
licensing board how many licenses
should be grunted, irrespective of conditions.
Mayor Finnk Htttton. David While-
side nnd Robert lx>w, members of the
city licensing hoard, met yesterday and
granted renewals to existing city licenses.
In all booming mining camps with
prosperlly and rich strikes the proverbial claim jumper generally appears,
and Franklin camp right now Is no exception lo the rule. Within the last
week several properties of merit have
been Jumped on alleged grounds, doubtless with n view of extracting a few
paltry dollars from the lawful owners,
when the jumper would file an abandonment, nnd thus the title would once
more remain cloudless.

San Francisco Fire Losses Still Matter
of Dispute.
Oakland, Cnl., June 15.���The Examiner today says: "The thirty-two insurance companies who wish lo settle
losses on the San Francisco lire on
dollar for dollar basis yesterday at a
meeting suggested a compromise lo the
other companies, who seek to establish
a 75 per cent, basis of settlement,
"The proposed compromise is an
agreement which will permit a Hal set-
tlemenl on all losses on which It Is
clearly "established lhal no earthquake
damage was sustained hy the property
before the fire. On all property damaged by Ihe earthquake lhe companies
Interested are to be permitted to exercise their own discretion as to I be basis on which losses are to be sel lied.
This compromise Is proposod by the
Companies holding OOI for a full settlement, and wus offered In an effort to
prevent lhe other coinpnnles from es
tablisbing a bureau of Iheir own. Tho
32 believed that a split in tbe underwriters' adjusting bureau at Ihis time
would be disastrous to the Insurances
situation. But the cut-payment companies were not prepared to ubandon
their claims for n general reduction,
and asked that a meeting be called In
a few days at which the matter shall
be finally settled."

Lord Aylmer Arrives lo
Inspect Rangers
Inspector-General Speaks ol Nucleus
of Instructional Force as the
Object of Present Plans.
Major-Genern! Lord Aylmer. inspector general of the Canadian forces;
Major Eaton, bis aide-de-camp, and
Colonel Holmes, D. O. C, came In from
the coast last night. They were met
on arrival by Captain Forin, of No. 2
company. R.  M. R.
It was intended that the inspection
of the company should be held on the
recreation grounds this afternoon, but
the downpour of rain this morning has
made that Inconvenient, and the inspection is now in progress at the armories.
Seen at the Strathcona last night by
a representative of The Daily Canadian, Ixird Aylmer discussed military affairs while arranging for a short fishing trip this morning.
He said: "This is my first trip of
Inspection to British Columbia, but I
have bad quite a lot of it during the
last ten days. Generally 1 have found
the western units In very fair order.
"No, we have not completed the
manning of tbe fortifications at Halifax
und EsquimalL It will take a long
time to train sufficient men. In the
meantime we are borrowing officers
and men from the imperial forces, who
nre lending us every possible assistance.
"In time we shell. I suppose, have
men of our own lo form those garrisons. There Is no Idea, at present, of
formlns u standing army in Canada.
All we hope to establish Is the nucleus
of an instructional force. A standing
army Is not required in this country.
If we have a small and efficient skeleton force, ready at all times, round
which the available reserves may be
organized, that will be sufficient for the
performance or any military enter-
irises Canada is ever likely to have
to undertake. The formation of such
a nucleus is gradually being accomplished."
Over $25,000 Loss Only Partly Covered
by Insurance���Shipyards
In Danger.
The town of Nakusp suffered a heavy-
loss by fire lasi evening just ufter this
paper went to press. The Yale-Columbia lumber mill took fire, it is supposed,
from a spark igniting the tinder in the
yards, and for hours the conflagration
raged fiercely lu spite of the heroic
efforts of tbe mill hands und citizens
to extinguish the llamea.
The C. P. R. steamer Minto, which
was lying at the wharf, was put into
commission as speedily as possible, and
with her pumps a stream of water was
kept playing ou lhe Humes till they
were brought under control. A sudden change in tho direction of the
wind prevented the Ignition of tho C.
P. H. shops and shipyards, which adjoin the Yule-Columbia Company property, were fortunately thus saved. The
company's offices and storo bouses were
unconsumed. but tbe loss will be a
heavy ono.
The company will rebuild at once,
but the delay consequent upon the mill
being put out of business will seriously hamper them In the filling of their
orders. Oveij two million feet of lumber was In Ihe yards, only part of
which was consumed. There is $23,000
Insurance on the plant, the policies being Issued by the Phoenix Insurance
Company of London. England, of which

Dreyfus May Get Fresh Trial.
Paris, Juno 16.���The supreme court
today began consideration of the results of the inquiry which has been going on for the past 26 months relative
to granting Alfred Dreyfus another
trial. The private sessions will last
lour days, after which the  public ar
guments will be made. A decision is
expected at the end of the month. The
present hearing follows the decision of
the court of cassation March 5, 1904,
having an Investigation which has since
been going on.
Hebrews'   Houses   Sacked    and    Many
Biaiystok, Russia, June 16.���So far
ns can be ascertained, 30 Jews were
killed during yesterday's outbreak here.
The hospitals are filled wllh wounded,
but it Is impossible to ascertain the
correct number of casualties, as many
of the injured are hidden In private
All the Jews' shops on the four nrin-
clpal streets were sacked.
Military and iwlice patrols now guard
the streets, and no civilians are allowed to leave their houses. A sort
of armed truce has been established
pending the complete restoration of order.
Bailkystok, Russia, June 16.���When
the Associated Press corresjiondent arrived here at 4 o'clock Ihis morning the
city was in possession of soldiers of
the Vladimir regiment. The streets
and railroad stations were ot uipled by
tho military, and entrance Into the
town waa prohibited.
The population was greaJ,- excited,
and the Jews were terror-stricken, but
there was no resumption of fighting up
to noon. According to the information
obtainable, the attacks on the Jews
were provoked by the throwing of a
bomb into a religious procession yesterday, which wounded a priest who
was at the head of the procession and
several of his assistants. This aroused
the Christians, and although the perpetrators of the outrage were unknown,
the responsibility was promptly placed
on the Jews. A mob was soon formed,
and for several hours ravaged the
Jewish quarters, pillaging the shops
and hunting down and beating tbe oo
cupants. About 20 persons were killed
and SO were wounded. The Jews concealed themselves in cellars and attics In order to escape the fury of the
mob, and many fled from tne city.
St. Petersburg, June 15.���M. Shefstle,
a member of the lower house from the
Jewish pale, called on M. Stolyhln, the
minister of the Interior, today, regarding the anti-Jewish outbreak at Bealy-
sok. He was informed by the aide-decamp that order had been restored, and
that about ten persons had been killed,
but that the ministry bad no iufoima-
tlon as to the number of wounded. Subsequently M. Sbefflle and his colleagues
drafted interpellations for presentation
in the lower house calling attention to
the affair, expressing the fear that it
is the beginning of a widespread attack on the Jews, and demanding to
know what action the government had
taken in the matter and what measures
are being taken to prevent the destruc.
tion of the lives and property of Jews
throughout the empire.
Moscow, June 15.���The agitation
among the workmen here Is general,
and the strike is in full progress.
Largely attended meetings of a revolutionary character are held nightly In
the Industrial sections, and big demonstrations are made in front of the prisons. In the resolutions adopted support is pledged to parliament only so
long as It persists in Its fight against
the  bureaucracy.
Slight Increase Over Former Years Recorded Last Week.
The receipts from the tramway service for the week ending June 10th
were $147.46, an Increase of $3.20 over'
the corre8|x>ndlng week of last yea.',
when the receipts were $144.25. The
returns for tho yc.r to date amount to
$2,000.25, against $2,230.30 to tho same
date in  1906.
The increase over last year for the
same week is much less than usual,
due probably to the cool weather, which
encourages walking, and consequently
affects the number of patrons of the

Amendment to    Meat    Inspection  Bill
Washington, June 15.���Secretary
Loeb today gave out the following summary of the letter President Roosevelt
wrote to Chairman Wadsworth, of the
house committee on agriculture, disapproving of that committee's substitute
foi the Beverldge amendment to the
agricultural bill rognrdlng the Inspection  of meat  products:
"In the letter to Mr. Wadsworth the
president stated that almost every
change In the proposed house amendment was a change for the worse, as
compared with the senate amendment,
and no matter how unintentionally, It
was. In the president's Judgment, so
framed as to minimize the chance of
rooting out the evils In the packing business; that the president felt it would
doubtless suit those packers who were
objecting to a thoroughgoing Inspection, and that he also felt it would In
the long run be a heavy blow toi Ihe
honest stock raiser and tbe honest
packers; that the proposed amendment
would gravely hamper the secretary of
agriculture in doing the work appointed him to do, and would simply defer
the day when we could restore the foreign and interstate trade in meat to a
satisfactory position. The president
has explained verbally that he is far
less concerned with the question as to
whether the packers or the government should pay for tbe inspection
than with certain other features in the

evidence to show that any member of

Suspected that Explosion Killed the Entire Crew.
Seattle, June 15.���The gasoline
schooner Argus ts burning 35 miles off
Destruction island, and, according to
Captain G. E. Brldgett, of the steamer
Asunccen, a Pacific Oil Company line
steamer, it is unlikely the crew will
ever be heard from.
Captain Brldgett thinks the crew
was blown up with an explosion which
caused the lire. He says he went
alongside the Argus, and at that time
the vessel's hull and bow were burned
away. The Argus was bound from
Pttget Sound to Sau Francisco with a
cargo of lumber.
People of Queen City  Enjoy Cheapest
Markets   In   Kootenay���Freight
Rates Must Go Down.
The Nelson merchants have replied
effectively to the charge that they are
maintaining higher retail prices in Nelson than obtain In other towns in
Kootenay. especially In Rossland, and
their reply will doubtlessly be the end
of the matter.
No one impugns the good failh of
the gentleman who made the statement that ranchers along the lower Arrow lake were trading in Rossland tn
preference to Nelson, but it is the general belief that he has mistaken a few-
isolated cases for a general practice.
The bulk of the trade of that section
In all lines of goods, it is said, is bandied by the Nelson retail merchants.
Many Instances could be given, if
necessary, of Rossland people shopping
in Nelson who have afterwards declared that any difference tn prices is
iu favor of Nelson.
As the belief tbat high prices prevailed in Nelson wus undoubtedly held
in some quarters, the author of the first
startling statement has rendered a valuable service to tho city merchants by
affording Ihem an opportunity to dispel
the idea forever.
In the matter of western prices generally, as compared with those of the
east, no one appreciates more fully
than the wholesale and retail merchants of Nelson the disadvantages suffered in British Columbia, nnd especially in the Interior, by the arrangement
of freight rates on the transcontinental
railways. The question has been repeatedly taken up by the Nelson board
of trade, but Its final adjustment will
probably require years of united and
persevering effort by all the towns of

Results of Restoration
Public Credit
Harry Wright's Account of Premier's Tour and Reception-
People are Satisfied.
Harry Wright, M. L. A., was in tbe
city yesterday after a tour through
Bast Kootenay with Hon. R. McBride.
He reports the country advancing by
leaps and bounds, and the popularity
of the provincial government steadily
Mr. Wright Is availing himself of
his first weeks of leisure since the close
of the session to visit air parts of his
scattered constituency. On the course
of his trip with the premier he visited
Creston and Kitchener. Today and tomorrow are devoted to Ymir, Salmo
and Erie. Monday night be leaves for
Fire Valley, accompanied by R. A. Ren-
wick, district government agent
Seen last evening, Mr. Wright sold
in reply to questions as to bis impressions of East Kootenay and its growth:
"The country la rapidly filling up,
and already is showing many evidences
of prosperity and confidence. I had to
go as far as Cowley on private business. The coal mining towns In the
Crow's Nest Pass country are booming.
Population and wealth are Increasing
fast, and every one seems full of confidence. I also took advantage of a
few hours in Frank to visit the Canadian Metal Company's zinc plant It
is splendidly equipped and arranged,
and the superintendent, Mr. Jones, who
showed me around the establishment,
was perfectly satisfied with the result
of operations so far.
"But I suppose you want some political news of the premier's tour. Hia
trip was undertaken for his own department of mines, an,U official duties
were the first consideration. But everywhere that he went our friends insisted on a meeting, and frequently organized one at a few hours' notice by
verbal communication. The meeting at
Cranbrook was especially interesting.
The move for a meeting was not made
till after dinner, and few could be
reached by telephone, but shortly alter
8 o'clock more than CO men were together. Mr. McBride was listened to
with the closest attention. He spoke In
his usual quiet, informal, conversational manner, and his straightforward
statements of government policy were
applauded again and again.
"Throughout East Kootenay it is
frankly conceded by business men of
both parties that the development of
that section has been made possible by
th restoration of public credit, which
has been achieved by the present provincial government.
"In the CreBton district two new lumber mills are being erected, and the
mill formerly owned by Mr. Buchanan
is in operation.
"New roads and bridges are being
built, and old ones repaired and Improved, under the supervision of J. D.
Moore, district superintendent.
"Tomorrow I am going out to Erie,
and will go over the district with M.
Tait, road and bridge inspector. On
the way back I shall visit Salmo and
Ymir. There Ib a big present and
prospective mining development in the
Salmo district, and I want to be In a
position to represent the needs of the
district and secure every possible aid
and encouragement for the miners.
"On Monday I shall leave for Fire
Valloy with the district government
agent. When I have completed that
visit I shall be fairly conversant with
present conditions in all parts of my
constituency. Yes, on the whole I am
well pleased with the outlook for the
country, and Incidentally for the par

When Premior McBride accepted
from tbe lieutenant-governor in 1803
tho responsibility of forming a new
government, ho took upon hlmsoif an
obligation which was nunc than twofold. Mo nol only assumed tbe responsibility of organisation on party linos,
but ho also had Imposed upon him by
tho oiministaneos of Iho occasion the
obligation to pull iho chestnuts ut the
province -if British Columbia oui ot
iho lhv in respect to ihoso matters in
which iho mismanagement of his predecessors in office had plunged it. The
Incompetency of tho Semlln government; the erratic, belligerent and Mar*
Unesque ministry which followed il,
giving additional notoriety to Mr. .Joseph Martin as a .succossfu. wrecker
of provincial interests; iho niter indifference of Colonel Prior and his colleagues in ofllce, all combined to produce a situation which was farn aching and disastrous in its results to British Columbia, Thai Mr. .lames Dun*
muir, now bis honor, the lieutenant
governor, would have reorganized the
administration if it had been possible
for him to do bo, is now everywhere
believed. Of Mr. Dunsmuir's honesty
of purpose there never was any doubt,
but Mr. Dunsmuir had had no experience with orally, aud unscrupulous political colleagues, and he tell, a not
easy prey, but still a prey, to the successful machinations of such men as
BbertS and Wells, and was glad to be
relieved of responsibility as iho head
of a government which bad' proved It
self Intractable and unworthy of public
'onliilonce. Mr, Dunsinuir's cancel la-
on of tbe crown grants in the case of
certuln railway charter, which had
been Juggled with by his minister, was
at the same time the besl expression
he could afford of his dtflgUBl and distrust of his colleagues, and his honesty
of purpose in so far as lie was competent   to  administer  the  affairs  of    bll
This brief reference to the events
which transpired between 1898 and
1008 will serve lo give our readers
some Idea of that malfeasance and incompetency of the governments oi
British Columbia which created the
heritage of confusion and worse which
foil to Mr, McBride when he was called
upon to assume the responsibility oi
thu provincial government in every
department there wore Blgnlficanl evidences of mismanagement, shiftless*
news and corrupt inn, which, as we have
already Stated, brought tin* province to
the verge of bankruptcy.
On Mr. Mcllride's accession to power, the Opposition, without apparent
sensibility to the gravity of the situation, began immediately a series of obstruction tactics. With no highet
ideals of the functions of party opposition, it resorted to tho most unscrupulous methods it could Invent to em-
barrass the government���mot ho Is
which it has pursued with undevious
persistence over since it was first relegated by the electorate to the opposition benches. The Liberal party in
British Columbia, which at first bad
high expectations from, and, professedly, much confidence In its leader. Mr.
J. A. McDonald, goon found to its own
humiliation and disgust that Mr. McDonald was Inexperienced in honorable
political warfare, and that to keep up a
semblance of criticism he was obliged
to enlist the services of that precocious
politician, Mr. John Oliver, the member
from Delta, No stone has been left
unturned, no private walk of a minister's life has been left unscavengorod
by those two doughty champions of
Ihe opposition, and it is to the credit of
(he opposition that their leaders have
had so little sympathetic support in
their fulsome and self-laudatory criticism iu the house. That tbe government has been not only able to survive
ihese unprincipled attacks, bm also to
win Increasing confidence throughout
ihe country, is only another evidence
of die singleness of its purpose an I
the success of its administration. The
address of the chief commissioner of
lands ami works, as reported in our
columns yesterday, will be read with
the greatest interest by the electors
of the Kootenays, not only for its grasp
of the responsibility of a minisier as
evinced by Mr. Green, bul also for its
unbending determination to hold the
reins of power whore a minister will
he responsible to his colleagues and
through his colleagues to  the country.
Our attention has been called to
some further ambiguities, if not Injustices, in the tariff regulations of the
Dominion government, suggested by
our editorial last week on iho unfair
duly levied upon milling machinery.
while mining machinery ostensibly is
admitted Into Canada, free. While we
remarked al lhal time thai mining machinery is properly on the free list, the
same argument would apply to prove
the proper and just admittance of milling machinery under the same tariff
regulations, It appears, however, thai
mining machinery is on the whole subject io taxation, and that ibis taxation
varies In different clearing houses according to the construction winch the
Customs OfflOer at each may place upon
the net. The specification in the customs tariff reads us follows:
"Machinery, Imported exclusively for
mining, smelting and reducing. FREE,
viz: Coal cutting machines, except percussion coal cutters, coal heading machines," together with thirty-two other
except Ions, each distinctly specified
and covering Ihe catalogue of mining
tools aud mnchinery so exclusively as
tt) make an exception of the general
rule. M Ih therefore found that In Importing mining machinery, the Importer is confronted with an array (if dutiable articles so comprehensive In its
sweep that ll Includes almost everything that is used in tho development
of mineral properties. The Inequalities
in practice in ihe assessment of these
fltitles Is a matter of common report,
the articles imported al different places
being indifferently assessed, with the
resuli that between tho ambiguous
phraseology of the tariff and the optional Interpretation put upon It, il Ih
almost impossible for an Importer to
estimate accurately what his machinery will cost, when laid down. Evidently there is room for still further tariff
The Internal management of a
newspaper office has never ceased to
be a matter of curiosity ami perplexity
io the reading public. A handy illustration of this fact has already been
encountered in the experience of The
Daily Canadian. On Wednesday our
report of a business meeting contained
a statement made by a responsible
business man making an embarrassing
coipp&rison of prices on ihe necessaries
oi lite as between here and Rossland,
It is a distinctive policy of this paper
tn publish news, and tho management
has no intention of suppressing information in the inter, sis of one class or
at the expense of another. The news
columns of ibis paper belong to the
people ihe editorial page to ihe management Wo had th.' utmost coiill-
donee in tbe Integrity of the merchants
of Nelson, and have never made any
suggestion that they are In receipt of
unfair profits from   tho   sale of their
goods; but we felt, ami still feel, lhat
ii there is discrimination in prices,
from any reason whatsoever, as between Nelson ami Itossland. the cause
should be discovered and the difference
removed. That a full Inquiry into tho
mailer by our city editor yesterday
elicited tin' information that there is
a current com men I on tbe situation is
sufficient justification for our course.
We published yesterday, in oxtenso, a
letter of a prominent ami respected
IriisiiP'ss man, couched in sufficiently
forcible language to renuire no comment from us. The publication of the
litter is in itself sufllcient evidence of
cur desire to deal fairly wfth ail classes, and beyond this wo have neither
reason nor determination to go.
The attention of The Daily Canadian
has been called by the sollciiors for J.
.1. C. Fernau that he is suing tho Canadian .Metal Company for damages for
wrongful dismissal, and that the main
issue Is the wisdom or unwisdom of
Mr. Fernau's operations at Pilot Bay.
The statements of J. E3. Harrington, director of the company, published in an
interview with him. wore given solely
r;ti his authority and expressly as stute-
ments of opinions held by the present
directorate. The Daily Canadian, of
cniirse, has neither means nor inc'ina-
lion to judge the issues.
Th" editor, manager and staff of this
paper desire tn thank its many corre
spodents for the expressions of good
will sent us and congratulations on the
general appearance and polity of tho
paper. Only our limited space pre>
vents us publishing many of these, and
while it would be pleasant to show one-
half of tho world how the other half
lives, there are unfortunately more important considerations requiring attention.    Again, we thank  you.
Members Indulge in Informal Talk on
Retail Prices.
Tbe recent controversy about the
comparative prices of Nelson and Boss-
land formed the staple of discussion
at the board of trade meeting lasi
night. Il was generally maintained
that, purchasers in Nelson won' under
no disadvantage, bul were accorded at
least as good terms as those given by
Itossland merchants.
Thi' me.'ting was hold In the hoard
rooms at 8:30. Those present were:
F. Starkey, in the (hair; S. M. Brydges,
secretary; K. K. Qigot, \V. IL Jones, I.
C. Nelson, A. L. Teolzel, M. (J. Good-
eve, B. Applothwaito, H. K. Douglas,
T. Morley, A.  Lean and others.
The minutes of ihe last meeting
were read and approved. There were
no communications of Importance and
uo business  submitted   by  tho council.
About an hour was spent In informal
discussion of retail prices. It was
finally agreed that a general denial
might bo given to the siniemont that
higher prices were charged in Nelson
than in other Koolenay lowns for
goods  of   'he  same  quality.

At a meeting of live of the benchers
of the Law Society at Victoria, on
Thursday, June 7th, Ihe complaint of
John Elliott, u bencher, against S. S.
Taylor was tried, and reunited In u
resolution suspending Mr. Taylor from
practicing as ii solicitor for thlrly clays
I rem June 7th.
Tlila is the second ilmo in late yuira
that this power of the benchers has
been exercised, the other case being
ihat of Joseph Martin, K. C, of Vancouver.
Mr. Elliott's complaint consisted In
bringing before Ilie Law Society the
criticisms made by the chief Juatice in
the appeal tried IS months ago In the
caae of the Centre Slur Mining Company versus the Itossland Miners' Union und Others respecting a certain letter written by Mr. Taylor lo one of
his cllenls, and copied below. Tho crll-
Iclsms Mr, Taylor then partially explained.
Mr. Taylor has furnished Tlie Daily
Canadian wiih the following statement
of this case:
"The complaint was laid by John
Elliott, a bencher. As soon as the cbiei
justice delivered ills criticisms on Jan-
uury 23rd, 1905, I wrote the benchers,
fully explaining the letter criticised,
and tbe matter practically remained in
abeyance for one year, namely, until
January Oth, 1906, when the discipline
committee reported that, Inasmuch as
no complaint had been lodged before
them, no inquiry into the facts submitted by me could be held; thla report
was adopted, with John Elliott, alone
voting 'nay,' and fhe following Is a copy
of what was next done on that date:
"Mr. Elliott moved thut the secretary
be instructed to lay a complaint against
Mr. S. S. Taylor in pursuance of lhe
remarks of the chief Justice in the
case of Centre Slur vs. itossland Mln
ers' I'nion.
"There being no second, Iho motion
"Mr. John Elliott then, on the 22nd
January. 1900, made a formal comp'aial
over his own signature.
"This unfortunate affair arose out of
the Rossland slrike eases, of which the
Centre Star suit was one.   The compa
ny sued the miners' union nnd several
of Ihe olher sympathizing unions nnd
about   20  miners    lor    an    injunction
which, if obtained, mount practically
the   destruction   of those   unions,   and
nlso for general damages.    When the
action wns ready for I rial, Ihe plaintiff
Company having strongly  objected    to
Itossland ns  the place for trial, I   obtained an order from Judge Forln that
Ihe  trial   be  held  at   Nelson, showing
that  both   plaintiffs    and     defendants
and  their witnesses were all  resident
in  this  portion of the province.    The
plaintiff  company  desired   trial   before
ii special jury at Victoria; this I    op
posed on account of Ihe great expense
which  would   prevent  llle miners  having  Ihe   advantage   of  much evidence
lhat they could   procure,  and  also on
account of the great, prejudice Ihen ex-
Isllng in Victoria against the Western
Federation of Miners, resulting In par:
from the Investigation then lately made
by tho chief Justice nnd Mr. Rowe as
royal   commissioners    of  the    government.   An appeal lo the full court was
taken from the order of Judge Porln,
resulting in  tills order being reversed
nnd trial being directed to be held at
Victoria before a special jury.   1 knew,
in view of the facts above staled, thai
1   could   hardly   expect to win  on   the
trial and that an appeal would be necessary.    1  then Interviewed  the executive  officers of  lhe union, slating the
position  of affairs.    They asked what
would happen pending appeal proceed
lugs being taken to the properly of tin
union and the small homes of Ihe several men sued Individually.    I explain
ed thai the company would try to harass them as much as possible by execution proceedings,  pending  the bearing of lie appeal. In order to discourage appeal by disheartening the men.
AbOUl   twenty  of  Ihese   individual   defendants   had  hollies  which   had   cost
Ihelll $500 or $01111 each, lull upon u sale
would only realize $150 or 1800 on account of the depressed real estate nun
Itel  in Rossland.    If a sale was made
for this low amount,  and tbe    appeal
was   afterwards   successful,   only    the
amount  realized   upon  Ihe  sale  would
he returned, and lhe balance would be
lost.    A   sale  pending    appeal    wool
mean ihe turning out or the families
of these men, lhe driving of them from
the country, and Ihus causim   a spec-
lacular even! in Rossland, showing tbe
temporary   success   of   the    company,
which  meant, with the  many  discouragements   already  experienced,    great
discontent amongst    the   miners,   und
might  effect  the    further    proceeding
wllh   the   appeal  by   which   the   union
hoped lo finally establish the principle
of their litigation.    1 considered these
small homes of these few men of little
moment in the notion except as abov
and advised the union to keep
valuable union hall, worth from ti!
to $8,0011, free for the company lo seize
and  sell;   but   ns   lo   these   Individual
men,  I  said,  let  no  iiueb  discouragements be added to those already experienced, and toll  them to dlsposo    of
their homos nud  rent  pending appeal;
and I nlso offered to write to such defendants.     Accordingly
written to one of them, nnd a similar
ono to Iwo or three others. In writing
tills letter I never for a moment considered the possibility of the interpretation placed upon the same hy the
chief jusilce, because the action wus
for an injunction mainly, and general
damages, and in no sense for tbe col-
leclion of a Just debt, and the letter
was only intended as a protection pending appeal.
"The letter reads as follows:
"Feb. 1st, 1904.
"Alexander  Constantino,    Esq.,    Rossland:
"fie Centre Star vs. Rossland Miners'
Union and others. Dear Sir: You are
defendant in Ihis action with many
others, and notice of trial bas been
given by the plaintiffs for the court at
Victoria on the 1st of March, lo which
It would be well lhat you would go to
give evidence if possible, and we should
like to know at once whether you will
be able to go.
"We tried our best to foroe a trial at
Nelson or Rossland, aud obtained nn
order for trial ul Neison, but lhe court
of appeal upset this order, and we are
now forced to go to trial at Victoria.
Plaintiffs are claiming against all defendants $50,000 damages.
"While we hope to win the action,
still, with the jury at Victoria, where
such strong prejudice has prevailed
against the Western Federation of Miners, we feel afraid lhat a verdict might
be given against you; therefore It Ib
very necessary if you have any properly in your name to make disposition
of it at once, it is very dangerous to
convey to your wife, because lhe law-
Is that a voluntary conveyance, ou the
eve of a trial of lawsuit against, you, is
no good.
"We think it is our duly to fully advise you in time, however, as we would
feel very sorry to have you lose Ihe
property that you have worked so hard
"We hope to hear from you at once
with regard to whelher you can attend
as witness on your own behalf at the
"You remember that the day of trial
is for Tuesday, the fist day of March
next.    Yours  truly,
The union then, as payment on account ol my costs, which then exceeded $:J,uii0, gave me for $500 their mortgage on the World printing plant, and
the company, after it got its trial judgment at Victoria, moved in chambers
to compel me lo allow them lo seize it
under their execution. On that motion
they Tiled lhe nbove letter to Constantino, which, although it was a confidential letier to my client, lhe company had obtained from him. Constantino on the trial acied as. the company's witness in their action against
himself and his brother union men. In
my affidavit lit reply I never mentioned
the facts surrounding this leiter because It had nothing, in my opinion, to
do with lhe dispute Ihen being tried,
hence the chief Justice knew nothing
ot my defence lo this letter when he
made' bis criticisms. The motion was
argued nt Rossland before Mr. Justice
Irving, anil I succeeded with costs. The
company appealed, aud I lost the appeal. The chief Justice then made his
criticism*. Mr. Justice Morrison did
not expresslv concur in those criticisms, but simply said, 'I concur in the
conclusion of my lord.' Mr. Justice
Martin dissented In a judgment extending over six pages of the printed report of the case.
"It is contended lhat Ihis letter even
in a damage action is contrary to a
statute passed In A. D. 1570, namely, in
the 13th year of the reign of Queen
Elizabeth: and such appears to be ray
"I leave it to the public to judge of
lhe mailer. I slated my case fully to
tlie benchers upon path, and confidently expected a favorable result and a
full vindication of my conduct: urging
that I believed lhat. had I been present
in court when the mailer wns tried on
appeal, I could have explained to tbe
chief Justice the facts now given here,
and could hnve shown him that the
letter was simply a mailer of tactics to
preserve appeal proceedings in a faction lawsuit where every advantage has
been sought by both sides, and was
written with EO olher end in view,
which the preserving, unencumbered,
of tho valuable union hall property fully
hears out; nnd thus I would. I believe,
hnve avoided  the criticism.
"Whether the votes of the benchers
wns a mere majority or otherwise, I
have not yet, ascertained.
"I also explained to the benchers
ihai ihe Centre Star Company have
since returned to me the World printing plant, nnd have paid all their own
costs of the nbove mentioned appeal.
"1 Intend to enjoy ns fur as possllM
lhe (list rest I hnve had during
nineteen years of practice. I
add my grateful appreciation
kindness  shown    me    by   The Nelson
Canadian and nil olher papers of thin
ciiy in connection   with   this matte;
from the beginning."
