Important Onse Decided Against
th© Government.
"Judgment was given by Registrar
Auduttet in exchequer court yesterday
In a case of much intorosit and import-
riicij. It' was that of H. M. Price vs.
tho Dominion government. Thoplain
tiff was, awarded 855,950 damages with
interest from the time of the action.
The plaintiff, who residua In Quebec, it-
a weli known lumberman, owning
limits on the line of that -section of tht*
Intercolonial railway; acquired' from
the Druinmond coiuity railway.* Con
siderable damage was dono to bin and
other properties by fire claimed to havo
been started by sparko from an I. C. It,;
locomotive; Many witnesses were examined and a pretty strong case was
made out as to thut being the cause of
the fire. '   •   ,
Tho case wns referred by Judge Bur'
bidare to the registrar who, in his
judgment, finds the government responsible for damages caused by ihe
fire. There have been numerous cases
of damages being awarded in connection wilh injury or loss sustained on
public works, but this is about the lirst
case of damages being allowed where
the injury was not on the public work
in question, ouch as tho railway but
rather on adjoining property.
There are about eighteen other ca«e»
lnrgely depending on the judgment in
the Price suit.    '

From tba Herald
A few days ago W. A. Aldridge."0
Trail, who'has charge of ail the mining operations in which tbeLC. P. K.
is concerned, went with J. NEL McKenzie. manager "of the-LeRoi, at
Rossland to visit; the smelter at Marysville. They arrived . by the, east
bound train and drove at once across
tothe scene of their investigations.
A private coach-took them.lbick1 the
next day in time to catch the -west
bound train, !so "that their visit attracted, bnt little attention. It ia
stated that they wanted*.to 'see the
Eeberleinroasters in operation at the
new plant.. Those foroaces are giving splendid satisfaction- no doubt,
but there was, likely enough something else in thewind. It would not
surprise a good many people if an
amalgamation of tlie great lead producing mines iu East Kootenay were
contemplated,. -   ,"  .'.- ,.-
. Tlw- Canadian Metal Cb.,-will soon
be employing over-lOO men in the
Ainsworth district in connection with
their zinc development., The company has ;banded the United and
Glengarry just above Ainsworth, and
the Blue Bell on the opposite. side ot
the lake. If the investigations'ot the
ground turn out satisfactorily there
will be good times in the neighborhood;. Both Kaslb-and„.,.-Ainsworth
will be miicji birieflted by,this fresh
activity. The' Herald hopes that a
new era of permanent prosperity is
opening up tor all that great district.
The Guggenheims, who constitute
the motive power* of the American
Smelting, arid Refining Co.; liave purchased- the great, hydraulic / gold
mine belonging to the Cariboo Hydraulic Co., at.Bullion, The price
is siiid to be $1,000,000.' .Sir Thomas
Shanghnessy, fl., A. Abbott and other
high officials bf the \ C.P. Ji.. are
among the members of the" selling
company. It will be borne in mind
that the A. S. & R. Co., have an interest through the Federal Mining
Co., in .the 'Sullivan mine and. the
Marysville smelter. Those [ facts
point to the trend of American capital
towards r B. C- mining properties.
Prospects do not seem to have any
attraction tor those people.
