members of Premier Mcllrlde's Administration have handled the arfairs of
their offices. There was a good deal
of confusion when the parly attained
to power. This lias been gradually
remedied. The government had proceeded cautiously bul had built wisely and whether the government lives

& Co., who have assumed the chief
Every allegation of the plaintiffs Is
disputed. It Isl maintained���and effort will he made to prove���that the
fires that did the damage did not arise
from railway clearing operations at
all; that the damage claim ls ahsurdiy
padded; that there was no negligence
on the part of Quairfe; that the claim
ls not made In good faith. The legal
qui stion of Ihe rcsi>onsihility of Slew-
art & Co. for Quaiffe is reserved for
decision  hy the court.
The question of the judge and jury
visiting the ground later will evidently
depend upon the jury's view of the
comparative reliahillty of the witnesses, whose evidence conflicts.
The most Interesting feature or the
day's proceedings was an argument
hetween the court and Mr. Hodwell on
the laiter's motiun for nonsuit on tho
ground that no liability of Stewart &
Co. had been established.
Ills lordship showed ihat he did not
agree with counsel's view hut gave jwr*
mission  to argue Ihe  i>oiut again.
YesU'rduy afternoon afler the cross-
examination of C. i-dwards, John Macdonald endorsed Ihe estimates of Kd-
wards and Taiylor. He had hati 48
years' -experience as a lumber man.
Hi' did not select the ground for examination, hut went over lt with the
others. Tlie laud was steep, but not
at all unsuitable for logging and yielded, he would estimate, 80,000 feet to
lhe acre. He estimated Uie Fernie
Lumber company's loss at .2,_l(l,5!��7
feet, with a maximum margin of error
in  calculation  as  4.000.0UU  feet.
\V. Hlggins, another experienced
hnshman, gave similar evidence hut
placed tlie amount of lumber of the
Fernie Lumber company as ^4,.50,000
Cross-examined hy Mr. MacNelll, ho
could not give any details hut maintained that- his total was correct. Ho
had made deductions for rotten cedar
and defective logs. He had found also
some green timber.
The court then rose for the day.
When court opened this morning Mr.
Davis rose and moved to add Ihe assignees of the Celar Valley Lumber
company as party plaintiffs in Iheir
suit for damages.
Mr. Hodwell objected to such an addition at the present stage. He said
that he had had great difficulty in getting examinations for discovery of the
directors of the lumber company. He
had, of course, no opportunity to ex
amine Uie assignee at all. He also
questioned the assignee's right in any
event to he a party to such a case.
Mr. Davis retorted that Cree, the us*-
signee, had lieen examined for discovery, Mr. Hodwell replied that Cree's
discovery was useless, as he was not
an officer or agent of the company.
Ills lordship could see no reason
why the assignee should nol Ik- joined
as a plaintiff.
lt wus Ihen agreed to leave Ihe matter for argument In chambers tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock.
Mr. MacNeill's cross-examination of
lliggins was ihen resumed. Taking
the map presented hi him the Witness
pointed OUl to Ihe jury Ihe various
areas  referred   to In  his  evidence.
On a comparison of the various
maps produced Mr. MacNelll discover,
ed a discrepancy, and lhe witness de-
Glared lhat one of lhe maps was Inaccurate, or at least thai if the map
were accurate his estimates were considerably astray.
The witness, pressed hy Mr. MacNelll. admitted that either Mr. Cum-
tilings, Ihe surveyor, or himself, must
be wrong, and maintained that lie wns

Cannot but Think Present Issue Forced on  Democrats Is Afflictive.
Now York, Oct. 11.���The World today publishes a statement by Grover
Cleveland on the New York political
cninpalgn. which. It slates, was writ-
len yesierday by the ex-president at
his home In Princeton, The statement

Cummlug's estimate was SO.000 feet,
he said It was a slight difference of
S. O. Cummlngs, recalled, accounted
for the difference in the maps, as to
marked burnt areas, and the boundary
lines of the fire area, by Baying that
al first, from a preliminary survey,
he had given Hlgglns a rough estimate.
In many cases he had accepted Hlggins' statements as to distances without taking measurements himself.
He further explained that bis second
survey, In the spring of 1906, was
much more accurate and careful. He
explained the discrepancies that puzzled Mr. Hlgglns by saying that where
the loss by fire on any tract seemed
trivial he had ignored It ln his estimates. As to the accuracy of his lines
he claimed that his margin of error
was not more than C per cent.    -*-
Cross-examined hy Mr. Hodwell he
said he was not responsible for Hlggins' estimate of acreage and of loss.
He would not undertage to say anything as to how or why Hlgglns had
rejected certain tracts from his calculations. Ho could not account for his
use of Ihe word "pre-emption" In his
plans. He was acting under definite
instruct ions, and did uot fully understand Ihe procedure. He knew there
were other pre-emptions in that locality.
John Macdonald, recalled, said he
had a cabin on hla pre-emption, hut
hnd not raised any crops, Some of
tho land, however, carried less than
fiOofl feet of tlmher to the acre.
W. Kllgalt, recalled, could not give
the explanation sought. Cross-exam-
Ined by Mr. Macdonald as to the missing pages, .'159 and MO In the Fernie
Lumber company's hooks, although
they appeared in tbe index, the witness created some amusement by declaring himself perfectly satisfied with
Mr. Claxton's explanation.
To Mr. Davis tbe witness said that
Claxton's presence in Nelson was entirely accidental.
Mr. Hodwell then addressed the
court, arguing that there was no case
to go to the jury. He suggested that
the margin of error In the estimates
of Ihe cruisers was greater than permissible, but waived that for tbo prea-

Mr. Rodwell contended thnt there

Is an important   distinction    between
lawful and necessary purposes.
Mr. Hodwell���Such a distinction cannot be maintained If one considers the
history of the law on the point.
Mr. MacNelll then argued, on behalf
of the railway company, that their contract with Stewart required their
written assent for any such contract,
and no such written assent has been
proved or even allegejd. Thereffore,
Quaiffe was a complete stranger to the
His lordship���If Quaiffe had had
any sense he would have sublet his
contract to a Chinaman, and no one
would be responsible.
His lordship further said that tbe
company had all the responsibility of
proprietors of land for any work authorized by them. To which Mr. Bodwell replied that clearing by fire is not
necessarily attended with risk, was, ln
fact, customary. He argued that clearing could not be done In winter as
suggested by his lordship; tbat the
clearing In summer was necessary,
lawful, and with ordinary care, safe.
The court then rose until 2:10.
When court resumed this afternoon
W. A. Macdonald, K. C, addressed the
jury, opening the case for the defendants, Stewart & Co. He regretted
the necessity for detaining business
men so long.
He anticipated that (he two main
questions to be submitted to Ihe jury
would lie of negligence nnd of damages.
Mr. Davis had assumed, and sought
to prove, that the fire which did the
damage was set out by Quaiffe. The
defence would put In evidence to show
thut the fires were not caused by negligence nnd that fires rom Ihe portion
of the right of way in question did not
cause the damages complained of.
Every effort had been made to secure Quaiffe'8 presence by tbe defence,
but without effect. They would, however, show that there were other fires
in the district; that every reasonable
precaution to prevent the spread of
fire was taken by Quaiffe and other
subcontractors, and that. In fact, unusual precautions wero taken to guard
against all danger of fire.
The defence, he said, would show
that most of the firing was over before
the conflagration began. Only two
witnesses, Plant and Manning, had
given any direct evidence as to origin.
Their evidence would be refuted not
only by witnesses to be put In for the
defence, but by the statements also
of other witnesses put ln by the plaintiffs themselves.
Even the evidence for tbe plaintiffs, Mr. Macdonald said, had shown
that the whole line of the right of way
was not on fire at once, as stated by
Mr. Davis tn opening, but only for a
shirl distance south of Lever's house.
The damage was caused by a fire

Two witnesses, Smith and McLeod,
would be produced to establish that
view of the case.
As to the question of damages, he
said the defence would show that the
action was brought to compel Stewart
to purchase the timber limits. They
would show that every item ln the
claim for damages was grossly padded.
The Jury would hear the evidence of
an Independent and reliable surveyor,
F. C. Oreen, and a timber cruiser as
to the extent and value of the limits
claimed for.
Mr. MacNelll remarked lhat the witnesses that would follow were called
by Stewart ft Co. only, not by the railway company.
H. L. Cummins, surveyor, waa then
called by the defence and Mr. Mncdonald began his examination.
The witness told of former surveys

Annua) Meeting Shows Healthy Condition���Tariff  Issues.
London, Oct. 11.���At the semi-annual
Hireling of thc stockholders of the
Qrand Trunk railway of Canada held
here today, the president. Sir Charles
Rivers Wilson, while not pledging himself, said he would be greatly disappointed If, at tbe annual meeting, he
would not be able to declare Increased
dividends for third-class stockholders.
This pleased a great number of stockholders who attended the meeting
with the Intention of attacking the policy of the directors. President Wilson
discussed the increased tmxntion Imposed by ine Canadian government,*
particularly the Increase In the tariff
on rails.
If the company continued to buy
rails In the United States It would
mean an Increase in cost of $1,250,000
for   renewals   In   the   present   system
and an increase over the estimated
cost of construction of the Grand
Trunk Pacific railway of $4,000,000.
lhe president also complained of the
great Increase in taxation Imposed by
the Ontario government, and aald he
anticipated In another year to see the
completion of the Grand Trunk rail*
way from Edmonton to Winnipeg, but
he feared that the government would
not be ready with the section from
Winnipeg to Lake Superior Junction.
Sir Charles further announced tbat
the directors would secretly ask for
subscription to a debenture Issue for
the construction of new cars for the
Grand Trunk Pacific, which, until required by the road, could be used by
the Grand Trunk railway.

Church and State   Will   Cross Swords
on Reassembling of Cortes Over
Church Issues.
Madrid, Oct. U.���Upon the reassembling or tbe tonus on October 20
tbe Vatican and the Liberal government of Marshall Lobez Doiulnguez
will cross swords over (tie church Issue. While the actual question of the
separation of church and state in
.pain, Ibe stronghold of Catholicism,
is not to be immediately raised aa lu
France, the program of the Liberals Ib
distinctly anti-clerical, and if it progresses successfully lt Is sure to lead
to an open fight for the severance of
tho ties which bind the Vatican and
the lloiirbon dynasty.
Meanwhile, the political world is
uiuch Interested as to whether the Vatican merely wishes to fight for tbe re-
eslabllshment of its prerogatives, that
It has allowed to fall more or less into
abeyance, or if It had a deeper plan
to precipitate an election on tbe Liberal cabinet and the return of the reactionary party. The Dotnlnguez court
found an excellent pretext for joining
battle with the Vatican In the shape
of the question of civil marriages and_
the control of public cemeteries.
Count De Kumanones, minister of
the interior in tbe Doiulnguez republic,
replied to the papal note demanding
the re-establishment of the above-
mentioned powers. To this the Vatican
unswered by presenting a note couched In a more iieremptory form, presenting the same demands and protesting
against thc attitude of the government.
The ministry confined Itself to making a formal acknowledgment of the
The church opposes the municipal
control of cemeteries and demands
that the practice of allowing portions
of cemeteries to lie used by Spaniards

civil marriages the church wishes It

Hfutniards are only legal when celebrated according to canon law, which
Is absolutely opposed to Ihe actual

Furthermore, marriages between

Regina, Sask., Oct. 11.���Two rery interesting subjects occupied the attention of the court en banc today, namely, the reserved case of the King vs.

code, and as to whether the defrauding
of electors was the defrauding of Ihe
Mr. Elwood of Moosomln appeared
for the crown and Mr. Norman Mackenzie of Regina for Sinclair. In tbe
course of the argument Judge Sifton
said there was no doubt that the public were Interested in the proceedings,
but the question was whether there
was anything of which they could be
defrauded. He would be Inclined to
distinguish between people who could
be specifically described as a class
and those who could not be so described.
Mr. Elwood replied that every person living In the province was interested In and wu affected or might be
affected by an election, and to that
extent might be defrauded. Every
person living in the country had a
right to expect that proper laws would
be enacted and if Improper people got
elected by Improper means then every
resident was defrauded, whether he
was a voter or not, and in that manner all the people, the public, whether
they had rotes or not, were defrauded.
Mr. Mackenzie contended that the
word "public" referred to electors generally. There were a number of persons referred to who come under the
term electors, but they were not the
public. Judgment In the case was reserved. _
In April laat Mr. Justice Prendergast
of Prince Albert had before him a petition of Albert Alexander Strachan,
asking that tbe seat in the Saskatchewan legislative asembly then 'held by
John Henderson Lamont. the present
attorney general for this province, oe
declared vacant on the ground that
during the general elections in December last Mr. Lamont, either hy himself
or agent had heen guilty of improper
practices, as defined by the controverted elections ordinance.
In giving judgment on the 19th of
May, Judge Prendergast found that
the controverted elections ordinances
was not continued in the Saskatchewan act. nnd was therefore not ln
force at the date of the general erections: thast Ihe power to hear and determine petitions with respect to provincial elections now resides exclusively In the provincial assembly, and
that his court had no jurisdiction in
the matter. The petition was therefore dismissed. It was against this
decision that appeal was made, Mr.
F. w. O. Haultoin, K. C, acting for the
appellant, Strachan.
Mr. Haullaln, In opening his case,
broadly referred to tie circumstances
under which the Saskatchewan act
was passed. The object of the Saskatchewan act, he remarked, was to
provide the now province with a more
or less complete code of laws which
hnd obtnined under previous existing
conditions; to leavo the same constitutional proceedings and the same conditions as far AS possible as they were
prior to the passage of the act, such
laws and institutions only being alterable by competent authority. That
being so, there was no need to go ont
side the four corners of the act to
look for thc Intention of parliament,
or groping for the Intention of parliament In providing not only a constitution and body of laws for the new
province, but also lu providing rules
and regulations for the establishing
and guidance of 'the provincial legislature ns well. Nothing could be broader, more comprehensive, nothing plainer. In his opinion of Ihe provisions of
the law wllh regard to the constitution
of the Norlh west legislative assembly.
There was not n single word In any
other clause or section of the Sua-
kuic.hewan act In any sense limiting
or modifying tho broadest, the most
comprehensive meaning whicli would
be attached to those words.
Mr. Haultaln then proceeded to review and argue the whole case In a
most exhaustive manner and hnd not
finished when the court adjourned. Me
will resume his argument tomorrow.

Government Will Not Permit Lands to
Be  Tied  Up.
Kredericton, N. U., Oct. 11.���The
newly organized New Brunswick fish
and game club, which promises to Ue
up lf700,000 acres of land in Victoria
and Madawaska counties, will not be
able tu exclude the general public from
the eujoyment of hunting rights on
their laud, if the government of New
Brtmswiok can prevent it.
Premier Tweedie says that the underbuilding was that tbe general public wub to be excluded from hunting
ou such lands. The feeling has beeu
strongly expressed that such action
would be detrimental to the public interest, and tlie acting surveyor-general
was Instructed to lurorm the company
lhal such aclou as they propose will
be luuked upon with great disfavor by
the government and legislature.
So far as burning rights are concerned, the wild lands of the province,
whether owned by private individuals
or by lbe Crown, should be all in the
gams position in regard to the hunting
und taking of game.

Illshop C. C. McCabe, oue of tlie
most widely known bishops of tlte
Methodist Eplscupal church, was born
at Athens, Ohio, Oct. 11, mu. He waa
educated at Ohio Wesleyun University,
and entered the Ohio Coferenco of llie
M. E. church in i860. The most adventurous part of his career was his
work as a Federal chaplain during the
civil war. He was captured, at Winchester and suffered a term of confinement in l_lbby prison. After the
war he became pastor al Portsmouth,
Ohio, und financial agent of Wesley an
university, his alma mater. His work
In obtaining money for Uie university
attracted tlie attention of tbe newly
funned Church Extension Society,
which enlisted him as assistant secretary. In 1884, at a critical period in
the existence of the Methodist Missionary Society, he undertook the secretaryship of that important organization. During his long connection with
these two societies, Dr. McCabe's work
has made hlm famous throughout the
Christian world. Millions of dollars
have been raised and expended under
his uuBpiees. His voice has been heard

.-. that bound his famous wind-
M;nnehaha," and in a mo-
men' tne *heei Dev round and the
pump started work, pouring forth a
torrent of water. Thus Mr. Fleming
has solved the irrigation problem and
-2ed the nucleus of a waterworks system that may before long
render the enterprising citizens of
Fairview in dependent of the monopoly in water now held by the corpora-
Uon of the city of Nelson.
The general meting of the Nelson
branch of the Anti-Tuberculosis society has been postponed for one week
from tomorrow, as Dr. Arthur and several other members will probably be
���^riga-.ed at the courthouse. In the
meantime, all societies are Mked to
appoint delegates. If any society has
no meting in the interval, tbe president and secretary are asked to act.
The city clergy are requested to call
attention to the meeting on Sunday.
All others who sympathize with the
aim of the society are cordially invited to attend.
