The following offioers were

vice-president.
F. E. Simpson. Cranbrook, secretary-treasurer.

The resolutions so far passed by
the Counoil are five in number
each and all dealing with live
questions of the day.
The first approved of the attitude
taken by J. A. Maodonald as leader
of the provinoial party in the house
laBt session.
Another dealt with the question
of the two per cent tax, desiring ito
abolition and pointing out that th e
McBride government waa especially derelict in the matter as members of tbe Premier's party had
acknowledged the incidence of the
tax to be infamous.
A third dealt with the Agent
General. It pointed out that the
agenoy was muoh handicapped for
want of sufficient information and
desired that stepB should be taken
towards supplying this information
especially in the direction of mak
ing surveys of available ground
for settlers and tbe facilities of approach and methods of acquirement.
Another dealt with the lumber
industry. The Counoil thought
that an enquiry should be made
and see what the faots were, both
with regard to the producer, the
middlemen, the railway freights
and tbe consumers, and the matter
to be then dealt with accordingly,
when the whole faott were presented.
A fifth set out that the mining
{industry was one of the chief industries of the whole Dominion
and was deserving of a speoial
portfolio. It urged the Ottawa
government to appoint a Minister
of Mines and to aeleot for that officer a Kootenaian who was thoroughly well acquainted wi.h the
situation

SMALL OUTPOST AFFAIR AT ANJU

Seoul, Maroh 24—A brush between the opposing forces has oc
purred at the outposts north of
Anju,

cording to the government's reports the Japanese oavalry seen
north of Anju this week oannot
keep in touoh with the Russians.
The military organ says the oooupation of Aoja, lying at the junction of the beBt roads leading to
Wiju, Seoul, Gensan and Kiiin,
afford a strong position aB a screen
to the movement of troops from
Pingyang, but muoh of this natural
advantage haB been lost by the
lack on the part of the Japanese, of
mounted skirmishers.
Washington, Maroh 24.—The
only direct information touching
the progress of the war in the Far
East that has reached the United
States state department within the
last three days oame today in the
following cablegram from United
States Minister Allen, dated Seoul,
today:
The Japanese foroes stopped a
specie caravan enroute to the mines
on this side of Anju. The miners
on this side are not allowed to proceed to the mines. The newspaper correspondents have been sent
to Seoul from the northwest. The
censorship is very strict. The
Japanese foroes are arriving at
Pingyang after a fortnight of
marching.
St. Petersburg, March 23—The
statement that Captain Irkoff of
the Manchurian commissariat service, was recently summarily court-
martialed and shot as a spy, is incorrect. The war office discovered
that he had sold information in
connection with the quarter-master's department to
Lieutenant Colonel Akasabi
who waa a military attache
ot the Japanese legation
here, and he was dismissed from
the army. He has now been arrested and is waiting trial by oourt
martial. It is officially announoed
that the information Bold by
Irkoff was not of great importance.
Viotoria, March 23—The Russians, say to Jewish refugees just
arrived here from Vladivostok, just
before the war, had strong forces at
work on the fortifications, making
new entrenobmentB, building bomb
proof store houses and plaoing big
guns. The place is immensely
strong   by   nature, but  has been
and strict surveillance was main
tained over everybody in the
plaoe.
It waa after ths news of the die-
nster to Russian arms at Port Arthur that the Jewish merohants
were ordered to get out as quickly
as they oould. The Russian warships in the harbor always seemed
to have steam up ready for sea, but
so far as the refugees are aware
they never left the harbor.
The whole sea front of Vladivostok is a network of submarine
mines. Since the outbreak of the
war very few vessels have entered
the harbor from the south, owing
to fear of Japanese oommerce destroyers. The Russians appeared
to be greatly annoyed when it was
learned that the railway between
Vladivostok and Harbin had been
torn up and the bridges dynamited.
Apparently no attempt was being
made to repair the damage.
The Shawmut encountered Japanese torpedo boats and destroyers
hundreds of miles out at sea before
reaohing the Japanese islands, and
they came alongside and made
searching inquiries as to her des
tination. The whole ocean around
the islands for hundreds of miles
seems to be patrolled by those little
craft, which on sight of a strange
vessel bear down on her at thirty
knots an hour,
In the ports the Japanese military polioe exercise an extraordinary vigilance. Tbe firm flush of
the war fever has passed in Japan
and business is going on quietly
again. One hundred war corres
pondents left for the front tbe day
before the Shawmut Bailed from
Yokohama.

National railway   to

minion, haB been ratified by tbe
shareholders in   London,   and although  it  has not  as  yet  been
formally confirmed by the parliament at Ottawa, still its projector,
Sir  Wilfrid  Laurier, is in honor

have been thus ratified.   Roughly
speaking, these conditions are the
building ot a line east from Quebec
to Monoton Hy   the   government,
parallelling the government railway,  the    Intercolonial,    and   a
guarantee of 75 per oent of the cost

this transcontinental railway are
getting their capital mainly on the
Canadian  guarantee.   The leader

It is a missed opportunity that no

Whigs a bathing and stolen away
their  clothes."   For   if  there  is
one thing to whioh the great Liberal party is committed, it is the
principle ol government ownership
ol  railroads.   What   the   oost of
building  from   Quebeo    eastward
will be directly, is no matter as to
actual amount, but this may   be
freely predicated, that it will oost
quite enough to make the guarantee of 75 per oent of the balance of
the toad equal  to a   guarantee of
100 per oent, supposing that no
line was constructed eastward.   If
the  government  had   added thiB
oost to its 75 per oent guarantee
and build the whole line to the Paoifio coast, owning it  themselves,
they  would   not have  committed
the oountry to a cent's more expenditure than it is committed at
the present.   The line will surely.
pay.   If it does  not  the  government guarantee will be oalled upon.
On tbe other hand, by the building
ol a railroad parallelling tbe Intercolonial   the .government is creating for itself a dangerous competitor, and in years to come the interested partisans of private ownership of railways will show the lessened profits of the Intercolonial,
as    an    impregnable    argument
against    government    ownership
Thus the present scheme will be
more costly   to the  oountry than
that ol government ownership were
it adopted.   Sir John  Maodonald
in the later Sixties, when the confederation of the various provinces
ol the Dominion came up,   stampeded his party'from free trade to
protection.   When British Columbia and the Maritime provinces demanded railway communication as
the price of union, Sir John Maodonald freely promised it, and his
party was perforce obliged to endorse his promise.   Sir John's action   at   that   time  took infinite
courage, for   the  Canada of   tbat
day was  not the  Cinada   of  the
present.   How much less courage
would it have taken Mr. Borden to

The following judgement wbioh

tin at the Deoember session of the,
Supreme Court at Viotoria and
whioh haa just been delivered will
be of some interest here, not only
trom its looal oonneotion, but from,
the legal point whioh it goes to
establish as a precedent which is
that a bill of sale on a mining property cannot take precedence of an
execution if not registered prior to
that execution. The issue was
presented in an action taken by
the Dumas Qold Mines against
Boultbee et al:
According to the issue as amend
ed pursuant to the principle laid
down in Bryoe v. Kinnee (1892)
14 Prac. R , 609, the question to be
determined is, does the defendant's
execution against Gilbert Pellent
prevail against the olaim of tbe
plaintiff oompany "or of its predecessor in title E. M. Pellent" to
the undivided half interett of the
said Gilbert Pellent in the mineral
claims mentioned in the issue?
The ohain of title eet up by the
eompany is through a bill of sale
(for the consideration of $500)
irom said Gilbert Pellent of his
half interest to E. M. Pellent, the
company's predecessor in title,
dated 23rd of February, 1903, and
it is admitted that this dooument
was not recorded till the 22nd of
May, 1903, and that in the meantime the sheriff bad seized under
the defendant's execution on the
18th of May, 1903.
Gilbert Pellent waa in the Yukon Territory, at Dawson, at the
time, over two thousand mileB trom
the mining recorder's offioe having
jurisdiction over the olaims in
question and it is contended that
by the operation of sees. 19 and 49
he or his transferees had some 215
days within'whioh to record tbe
instrument, ' on the assumption
tbat, like a locator, one who wishes
to reoord an instrument should be
allowed one day for every ten
miles of distance he who executes
it may happen at the time to be
from the recorder's office. ThiB is
an ingenious but clearly fallacious
argument. Section 49 says tbat
conveys noes etc -'shall be ri corded
within the time prescribed for recording mineral claims", and that
prescribed time is fixed by seotion
19 as dependent upon the distance
irom the Olaim to the recorder's
offioe not of the oca tor himsell
therefrom. It ie a fixed geo
graphical and not a shifting personal distance that ia contemplated by the statute, and it would be
unreaeonable to hold that the
transferee of a bill of Bale of a
mineral olaim would have more
time to reoord that instrument
than the free miner would have
originally had to record the olaim
itself.
Suoh being the oase, the bill oi
Sale relied upon has not been duly
recorded and ia of none effect as
against the delendand's intervening exeoution.
Itis admitted by  Croteau, an
unreliable witness, that the com-
p.ny had actual notioe of tbe
seizure- before it took the bill of
sale of May 25th, 19,03, from E
M. Pellent; and in any eve>>t I
cannot see how it is aided by tbat
dooument. I further find, if it is
material, that Croteau knew of tbe
judgement recovered in Vanoouver
setting aside said bill of sale from
Gilbert to E. M. Pellent before he
reoorded that bill of sale.
Other points were raised, bnt it
seems unnecessary to go into them.
I find that the plaintiff oompany
haa failed to establish its title and
the issue is hereby determined in
favor of the defendants.

THE
5 Maple Leaf j
SALOON
The Best Whiskey
There Is
The concert at the Presbyterian
ohuroh last night was very well
attended and, unusual with Rossland pertormance3,began strictly on
time. There was barely more
than standing room in the edifice
The programme was certainly ain-
bitiouB and two of tbe heaviest
choruses tbat are known for voices,
the "Heavens are Telling" and the
"Hallelujah", were attempted with
very creditable suooess. The
"Glory of the Lord," out of the
Messiah, was probably the bast
rendered.of three given, the musio
doing more justice to the number
of singers. Mrs. Walter Coulthard
was reoeived with applause on her
initial baw in taking up the solo bo
well known amongst oratorio
levers, "With Verdure Clad,"
whioh is undoubtedly one of the
finest in whole wide range of oratorio. In lighter songs the einger
waB also cordially reoeived by her
uld friends in Rossland and her
admirers did not fail to signify
their approbation. In instrumental musio she showed that the
training whioh had been given
to her voioe had been taken with
at least equal benefit as far as regards the technique of the pianoforte, Her selection is alao to be
admired as her taste was catholic
enough to admit a modern composer in addition to the classics,
whioh form the inevitable pabulum
at all concerts of high class musio.
The light and shade in Mrs. Coult-
hard's playing is truly remarkable.
The other soloist waB Mrs. Mclnnes who was in better voioe than
, her lower register showing
magnificent notes which, when the
range is remembered, is no faint
praise. Her efforts elicited a storm
ily applauded encore,
There was a oouple of part
songs, an octette and a quartette,
old music set to new tunes. The
quartette, witb women's vc
only, was very well done but the
octette was very well reoeived in'
deed, the excellence of the rendi'
tion making np for the rather
florid setting of Shelley's "Hark,
Hark My Soul." In the octette
Miss Crowley took the leading solo
part and the richness and round
ness of her voioe, despite a heavy
cold, did the music infinite oredit
The accompanying was done
by Mrs. A. H. MaeNeill, Mies
Crowley, and Mr. Alexander of
Vancouver who also had the training of the choruses, and did well
Altogether the Presbyterian ohuroh
is to be congratulated on the outcome of their efforts, extended over
several weeks past, both from a
musical and from a finanoial point
of view.
