Ibis moruiug lo a representative oi the

lo ruu Iwo preliminary lines and to
make a eomj.lcie cuntuur map u thc

account of Ibr precipiluus ami rocky
nature of Ibr snowline, Ihe wurk was

Although a survey parly has been at

ly: A few days ago tbe surveyors be

An iinpiiftuiil suit involving Iho nil

Justice Hunter in Ihc supreme courl ul
Vancouver. Tho cuse has sonic puints
uf similarity lu ihc famous Soulh Van
couver suil uf Andorsun uguinst that
municipality, but there arc special features in thc present case whicii  I
crubly modify the parallel.
The plaintiff in the present suit is

Accunliug lu the stuteinciils uf claim
and of defence Ihe district municipality
of North Vancouver sold the property
in quesliun, of which Mrs. Janics was
the regislered owner, fur taxes to thc
municipality in 18117. it nus .--.iI-- .-
queully resold to Mrs. Keith ul public

The plaintiff, in asking for u cancel
Istion of tbe applications lo register
tbo deed ami (or a declsrstion Ihul lbc
ii.Mun uf the dislricl  municipality uf
North Vsncouver in soiling tbo property for iuven was invalid. Tbo principal ground for tbo plaintiff's application is tbo samo os tbat brought (or-
ward in tbo now famous caso of An-
dorsoii vs. Soulb Vancouver, wbicb wes
fought through several courts and in
which it was liiu'lli bold by tbo Supremo Court nf Canada that tho mooting of tho council at which resolutions
woro iui' i'i in regard to Anderson's
proporty woro Invalid because tboy
woro bold without tbo municipality.
In addition tu thc contention that lhc
inccliug of tho council at which it was
decided to sell the land for taxes was
hold without thc dislriot, Mrs. Jumes
claims that, if Mrs. Koith did buy the
interest iu tho proporty she bought it
on ber ii. - muil.
As ugainst the pica of Ibo paliuliff
that the meetings of thc municipal
cuuucil were hold outside the mnn|ci
psllty, it is pointed uul by the defence
Ihul the position differs osBciitially
frum Ihul in the Amlorsun .vs. South
Vuncouvor caso. In the latter caso thc
council hold meetings outside of the
municipality, su lhc court bold, without authorization, while in the present
case it is contended duo authorization

Tbs members of tbe Norlh Shore
i.itersry snd Debating Society occupied ibeinsslves ps 'Wednesday eveuiug, witb the sequel to last week's
'' nni.vuru I'' ninl est. Tbe supporters of
Ur. II. (!. Wright having formally entered an appeal agaiusl lbe return of
s(r. J. N. llnuii, ss inquiry into lbs
piviiluir in. iiiiii-liiiii'i-ii iilli'inliiii; tl|e
couotiug of the ballots was rendered
uecosssry, and it was furtber found desirable in tbe interests of public morality to "charge" Mr. O. II. Morden
willi defrauding the electorate by crediting to Mr. llnuii certain votes re
curilBil in tin nr of Mr. Wright, thereby
In.ii.kml.mii Mr. Roderick Msckentie,
scrutineer, smi csuslng Mr. llouil to be
improperly siid erroneously declared
"mayor."
Mr. Morden, wbu apparently felt his
|.n-Hum keenly, pleaded uot guilty to
lhe charge. Ilis counsel was Mr. llouil
while the prosecution retained the ser
vires of Mr. Aleiandi'r I'hilip. The
hearing tuuk place befure liis lionuiir
Judge Van Muuster, whuse dignity uf
bearing and cluse atteutiun lu details
Impressed these preseut very deeply,
and roinflisiuloil a general behaviour
iu Ihe court which gave a minimum ut
trouble lu I'hief I'uustuhle llsn-lay.
.Sensational evidence was given by
witnesses for huth sides. Nobody seem
id lo know exactly what had happened
lu the original ballots whlcb bad disap
peered immediately ufter (he counting.
The accused protssted vcneinently thai
Mr. Mackenzie had read lhc ballots lu
him, and thai he had written duwn the
nature uf each vote accurately. The
urigiual return was produced showing
Ihc result to be Hoult 7, Wright t. On
Ihc other hand fuur witnesses testified
on oath as lo recording their vule ac
rufately in fSvor of Mr. Wright. These
witnesses were Mr. Wright, who freely
admitted voting fur himself, Mr. Mar
kemie, Mr. ilarciay ami Mr. llilliain.
Some inlerest centred aruuml the cn
ilenec given b) Mr. Sroulen, who stut
ed that during lhc week he had been
approached by one uf Mr. Wright's supporters who hud endeavored tu persuade bim tu sign an affidavit that tithed recorded his vute in favur of Mr.
Wright.
A significant feature uf the hearing
was that neither parties chose tu call
Ihc reluming officer, Mr. (J. W. Mi-Kse.
The only disorderly outbreak occurred
when ills liunuur declared thc appeal
gashed. The chief constable wished lu
im urn-rule the offender fur contempt
of court, hul Judge Van Muuster, Willi
inst lenience wbicb hss uiadc bis name
n lioutu Ii.ii.I word, ihose lo forgive the
misdemeanant. I'outiuuiug, His Hun

otherwise technically unacceptable.
There was no olher course upeu to Inin
therefore, hut to dismiss the ease, the

These are uot only acts passed by

Huad conditions were bad, owing to
