The oase of H. OdaniB of the
Josie boarding house, occupied the
attention of the court during the
whole of the morning. John Kirkup waa on the benoh, J. S. Clute
and J. A. Macdonald appearing for
the crown and A. H. MaeNeill, K.
C, for the defence.
The oharge was one of perjury
and arose of recent prosecutions of
H. Odams for selling illicitly
liquors at the boarding house
whioh he conduots, which fell
through. It seems during that
prosecution H. Odams, giving evidence in his own defence, swore
that he had conducted that boarding house for eighteen months, and
during that time had not sold any
Four witnesses were called today
to disprove this statement. These
were 0. Jackson, C. Williams, J.
Fisher and E. Scott. The first two
named swore to having drinks at
the Josie boarding house on the
same occasion, one of them only,
however, swearing to having seen
money pass in payment for them.
The other two witnesses testified
that they had seen liquors bought
at the Josie boarding house from
H. Odams on two other occasions
entirely distinct from tbat sworn
to by the other witnesses.
This, with the exception of the
purely formal evidence, was the
case for the prosecution. The witnesses throughout, except possibly
Fisher, were reluotant and the line
of examination taken was that of
hostile witnesses, counsel for the
defence vigorously protesting. ThiB
was especially evident in the case
of Ed. Scott, the last witness called.
The proteBts of the defence were
overruled by Magistrate Kirkup,
who declared that he would ask the
very questions objected to on his
own part as it seemed to him they
were merely efforts to get at the
real facta of the ease.
At the close of the case for the
prosecution, counsel for the defence urged that tbe perjured statement made waB made inadvertently
and that furthermore the law re-
quiree that a case of perjury must
be supported by corroborative evidence, i. e., that more than one
witness should depose to the one
set of facts. Now there were three
occasions referred to, and there
was no corroborative evidence. It
waa true that on one of these occasions that there were two witnesses
to the fact that drinking had occurred, bat the charge of perjury
was based on the denying of the
selling of the liquor, not that it
had not been drunk. Now only
one of these witnesses had sworn
to money being pasted on this occasion. Thus there was no corroborative evidence as to this one occasion. On the other hand of the
other two occasions alleged, there
was not even a pretence of corroborative testimony. Yet the law imperatively demanded corroborative
evidence in oases of perjury. Hence
Mr. MaeNeill pressed for a dismissal of the case on these grounds.
On the other side it is urged that
in the point made by the defence
that corroborative testimony might
have been necessary, had the assertion, perjured assertion aB
charged, merely deolared that on
some one partionlar dato no liquor
had been Bold. It would have
been one man's word against another, and a question of credibility.
This was why the law had been
framed as it existed. But the assertion was that during the whole
eighteen months no liquor had
been sold, and tbe prosecution had
shown that it had been sold on one
occasion, had corroborated that by
showing that it had been sold on a
second,and went further and showed
that it had been sold on a third.
Here was plenty of oorroborative
evidence within the meaning of
the aot.
Magistrate Kirkup deolared he
was quite unable, on bis own responsibility, to settle a point of law
auch as that made, and consequently adjourned the case until 2
o'clock tomorrow afternoon, so that
he might obtain a ruling from tbe
Chief Justice.
If that ruling is against the prosecution the case will there and then
fall to the ground, as far as the
prosecution is concerned. If not
the defence is at liberty to produce
its evidenoe in rebuttal.

Nelson, Aug., 4.—The members
of the local branch of the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen are
making big preparations for the
annual excursion of the order
which is to be held on August 25th
next to Rossland. The excursion
is to be one of the cheapest ever
mn in the Kootenays, fare for the
round trip being only $2. Besides
the members of the trainmen who
will go, there will be a large representation from the order of Sail-
way Conductors, the Brotherhood
of Locomotive Engineers, the order
of Railway Telegraphers, the maintenance of way workers, and other
railway orders, lodges of which are
Btattioned at Nelson. A team
from the Nelson fire brigade, the
lacrosse team and other athletic
organizations will also accompany
the excursion.
Excursions will be run from all
points in the kootenays and the
affair will be on the largest scale
yet undertaken by the brotherhood.
The excursion is being run on the
first day of the day of the Hossland
Summer Carnival, and the tickets
will be good to stay over till August 27th. On the morning of tbe
excursion there will be a grand
procession at Rossland, in which it
is expected that over one thousand
union men will be in line, including eight hundred members of the
Miners Union.
In the afternoon the chief event
will be the grand lacrosse match between Vancouver and Nelson
teams. Vancouver now holds the
lacrosse championship of the Pacific coast, while Nelson possesses
by far the strongest team in the
interior. The firemen's sports
which will be held at Rossland
that day will see tbe largest turnout of firemen that has ever been
seen in the interior,as it is expected
that six teamB will compete. Besides the usual hand drilling contests there will also be a machine
drilling contest between Le Roi,
War Kagle and Centre Star teams.
There will also be tugs of war between the representatives of the
different railway organizations.

Just before the outbreak of the
South   African   war,   the London
Times, discussing the character of
tbe parliamentary session just then
over, deolared, being itself a Con
servative organ, that the only mem
ber   of   the Salisbury administration who had justified his position
as a Cabinet minister was Joseph
Chamberlain.    Its   condemnation
of the shortcomings  of the other
members was closely critical.   Now
the peculiar part of this was that
tbe Ministry was Conservative with
the  exception ot Chamberlain,  a
Radical. Many a politician on this
continent deems that any criticism
of  shortcoming ot his  party had
best come from the other Bide ae
home criticism would "hurt   the
party." But it is  certain that the
criticism   of the   Times,   severe
and   even     sweeping as   it   was
did   not   hurt   the   Conservative
party,    It actually   strengthened
it.   A politician who knows   that
his party   papers will defend his
every action, right or wrong, has
little scruple in doing   something
which he must know will be looked
upon askance by the country.   He
can   safeiy   leave   the country at
large to discount largely accusations made by the opposition.   The
accusation made by his own party
is the accusation that hurts.   He
has to pay attention to that. And
the attention whioh he is forced to
pay will go a long way to keeping
his skirts clean, and to improving
the tone of the party and administration   to   which he belongs.   It
would be very  bad policy  in   a
housewife to oover up the dust instead of brushing it away in her
parlors.   It would be bad polioy in

Now upon this continent Sir
Wilfrid Laurier is a statesman of
whom the whole people, Liberal or
Conservative, are proud. More
than this he is a statesman of
whom the whole Empire is proud,
and Canada is honored in being
represented by such a man. Labor
people are not the least, if the
frankest, of his admirers. He baa
done much for them. But despite
this Sir Wilfrid iB a fallible mortal.
He is less open to criticism than
many other, than most other, politicians. But he is open. The
Liberal who will not frankly criticise Laurier is no friend of the premier. And the criticism is chiefly
levied at the course adopted in the
restriction of Oriental immigration.
It is perfeotly true that Sir Wilfrid has done far more than did
the Conservatives when in power
in this regard. He has gone so far
that bis friends are puzzled as to
why he has permi'ted the Chinese
to come in their hundreds into
Canada for tbe remainder of the
year, why he has put forth an assertion that the Mikado was re-
Civil service reform, says the
New Westminster Liberal, is a
very important plank in the Liberal platform, or, to put it more
correotly, a very important feature
of Liberal policy. That it is a pol
icy very difficult to carry out in
British Columbia may be at once
admitted. Conditions here are not
yet favorable to the proper carry,
ing out of such a policy. But the
attempt must 1 e made, and will be
made as soon as the Liberal gov-
eminent takes office. The main
points are: That no persons should
be appointed who are not qualified
to fill the oflice to which they are
appointed; aud that, of course, im
plies that there should be some
fixed .nd defined manner of testing
the qualifications of applicants.
That properly qualified persons
should not be rejtoted on account
of their political opinions. That
the higher offices should be filled
by promotion from the junior ranks
of the service, and that in this
matter, length of service should
govern tbe selection, other things
being equal; where other things
were not equal—that is, where
special merit deserved special re
cognition, or the absenoe of any
merit other than the minimum re>
quired to "hold down the job" in'
vited censure,—the ordinary rou
tine would be varied. The great
point would be to let every official
fool that his continuance in the
service and bis promotion depended upon himself. Again, every
position should carry a certain
salary, except in the case of junior
clerks, who should be paid on a
rising scale for the first few years
of their service. That is, the salary of a junior or ordinary clerk,
holding no special position, should
begin at a certain fixed figure and
increase by a certain fixed percentage each year during such term of
years as nvght be fixed. By the
end of the term it would have
reached its maximum, and there
would be no further increase, except the clerk was promoted to a
more responsible position. Men in
responsible   positions;   permanent
reforms. The percentage of increase in the cost of the civil service in this province, for some
time back, has been a good deal
higher than the percentage of increase in the revenue, That means
more taxes and it also means less
public works.

heads of departments and branches
of the departments, and some
others, should have fixed salaries.
To summarize: Appointment
should depend upon fitness; vacancies above the rank of junior olerk
should, as far as possible, be filled
by promotion; promotion Bhould
depend upon length of service and
merits: salaries should be fixed,
whether they remained at the same
amount permanently, or were in
creased year by year.
No system, of course, can prevent
favoritism in the matters of ap
pointment and promotion; but a
good system oan mitigate the evil;
and in the matter of the salary receivable, a proper system oan prevent a good deal of corruption.
It is hardly necessary to say that
the government which puts a proper civil service system in force
will turn against itself a good
many votes. That is an aspeot of
the matter whioh may be dealt
with separately at some other time;

Scheme to Market Slocan
Thinks United States Trade With
Orient Can Be Easily Cut
An English mining engineer
named Sherwood, now resident in
Vanoouver, proposes to built a lead
refinery and oorroding works to
handle the lead product of British
Columbia and market it in a finished state. Mr. Sherwood has
been studying the lead question
from a Canadian point of view for
some time and he is satisfied that
lead refining and oorroding in Vanoouver can be made a large and
permanent success.
Mr. Sherwood proposes to incorporate a syndicate of fi ve prominent business men who will put up
12000 each, or ten with $1000 eaoh,
which they are willing to invest in
a small refinery and corroding
plant that will handle four or five
tons a day from matte to finished
white lead. He proposes to buy
the matte from the Hall Mines and
Trail smelters, refine it by the
eleotrolytic process and corrode it
by tbe Gardner process, the patents
on whioh only ran out last year.
Mr. Sherwood believes that llfj,-
000 will be sufficient capital to
demonstrate that a lead refinery
and corroding works in Vancouver
oan be made an economic success.
After he has proven this by produoing sufficient lead for looal consumption, and proving a profit
thereon, he will invite more capital
and go into the business on a large
scale. Mr. Sherwood believes that
there is more safety and permanence for this industry in Vanoouver than for most oi the industries
already established. In support of
his contention hs points out that
the lead mines of British Columbia
produce about 19,000 tons of lead
annually and that the nonunion of
Canada consumes 11,000 tons
annually, but that very little of
this lead is refined in Canada and
none of it is corroded on this side
of tho line.
But the limit ot possible production in Canada has not by any
means been reached. The Kootenay mines are capable of a production of olose to 100,000 tons per
annum. Owing lo the bonus of
$ 15 per ton, the production of lead
ore will be much greater in the
future than in the past. A market
will have to be found for this ore,
but the question is where? Mr.
Sherwood is opinion that the Trail
smelter alone will supply the Canadian market. After that the residue will have to go to the foreign
market, principally to China.
What Mr. Sherwood proposes to do
is make arrangements that it
should go out aB a finished product
instead of going to the United
States in the form of lead ore, as
at present Mr. Sherwood points
that the Asiatic market for pig, tea
and sheet lead is largely monopolized by the San Francisco line, to
Hongkong is Canadian lead, imported into the United States and
manufactured in bond. There is
no physical or economic reason
why all this lead should not be refined and manufactured right in
It may be regarded as a permanent proposition that Canadian
lead cannot economically be marketed in the United States as the
duty on lead ore is 1 _ cents a
pound, and the duty on pig lead
2_oents. At present a good proportion of our lead ore is shipped
to the United States and as a consequence, while pig lead in New
York iB $4.62. a hundred, a raw
lead in the Slocan brings only
$1.40 a hundred. This enormous
profit should go to the people of
British Columbia instead of to the
United States smelters.

Now Is the Time to Buy Lots
in Similkameen ©ity, B. 6.
CAMP HEDLEY is the most talked of oamp in the province, and situated in the oentre is Similkameen City, surrounded by
rioh mines whioh will shortly have large payrolls. Over 200 lots have been sold to business people who realize that Similkameen will become the metropolis of this district. The Nickel Plate mines have expended $300,000 in development and are at
present building tramways and a 40-stamp mill. Arrangements are being made for the erection of a large smelter at Similkameen City which will oost about a million dollars. Besides the Nickel Plate group of olaims being developed by one of the richest
mining companies in North America, there are several other groups and properties whioh will shortly be developed, among them
being the Kingston Mines, Rollo, Wellington, Winnipeg, Red Chief and Pollock. Situated as it is in the beautiful Similkameen
valley, midway between Frinoetcn and Keremeos, and protected from all opposition in the valley by adjoining a large Indian
reservation, this townsite will beoome one of the principal mining camps of the Paoifio Northwest. It was only a short time ago
that lota in Roesland, Nelson, Greenwood and other mining centres were selling for the same price that they are today being sold
for in Similkameen.   Come in before the boom and double your money.
Similkameen City to Have Two Railways.
The Viotoria, Vanoouver & Eastern and the Canadian Pacific railways are starting immediate construction for the Similkameen,
whioh will make this town a railroad centre and divisional point, and when these competing lines are completed through to the
Paoific coast they will become the main through lines, being the shortest route from the interior to the coast. A large sawmill is
running steadily on the west addition, the only available timber for milee around. The main street is 90 feet wide, being all
cleared and ready for building purposes. All railways, roads, telegraph and telephone lines will have to come through this
townsite whioh is looated in tbe centre of the whole Similkameen valley and will beoome the largest distributing point and
mining oentre in British Columbia.

The TradeB and Labor Congress
of Canada, in calling its convention
at Brockville, Out., on September
22, has issued a circular in which
it makes the following significant
references to labor legislation in
the Dominion pailiament:
"The past session of the Dominion parliament witnessed the
introduction of legislation of the
most oppressive character, aimed
at organized labor. The two following bills threaten the very existence of trade unionism and, no
matter at whose instance they were
introduced, the intent is plain,
namely, to administer a quietus to
the legitimate aims and efforts of
organized labor:
"Bill H—'An aot to amend the
criminal code respecting offences
connected with trade and breaches
of contract.'
"The object of this bill ia to kill
international trade unionism.
"Bill S—'An act to amend the
criminal code, 1892, respecting free
"This bill, if passed, will prevent a trade union discusBing ordinary trade matters.
'•The above bills originated in
the Senate, where scant courtesy
was sbown to Bill U—'An aot to
legalize union labels.'
"Among other bills of interest to
organized labor dealt with were the
Chinese Exclusion Act, the Conciliation Bill, the Railway Appliances Act, as well as numerous acts
of the provincial legislatures.
"The importance of the deliberations of the approaching session of
the Congress oannot be over accentuated. The employing classes
have united in active antagonism
to organized labor, their operations
are carried on in secret, the funds
at their command are large and
constantly increasing, and only by
a closer union, coupled with careful judgment and action, upon the
part of organized labor will it be
a ble to cope with them and prevent the destruction of the Canadian International Trades and Labor Union movement. The efforts
of our opponents are not confined
to the 'shop' but extend to our
legislative halls, and the active opposition to everything favorable to
us, as shown, for example, in the
Senate, demonstrates that labor
must wake up to the necessity for
"Besides these matters, tbe developments of the year in industrial
circles call for consideration, while
suggestions for the improvement
ot the conditions of the toiling
masses will, as usual.be dealt with.
"This session of the Congress,
while important in itself, can only
be tbe real voioe of organized labor
by the active sympathy and support of every union in Canada, and
that Bupport can best be given by
the attendance of your delegates at
"We are, yours fraternally,
