And nltiTeas doubts ii.ve arisen as to whether the said George Henry Bar-

Wu believe it would be well for ull parties concerned in' the. welfare
of our-city to look carefully into tho above act nnd the clauses ol the
Municipal Act which follow' it. If our city' is" in the' position in which
Victoria'was placed by the, election of Mr. Barnard, in January of last
year, il would be folly to go on passing by-laws and holding*'elections
only to lmve them declared null and void. If. we are iu such a position
the- sooner we Unow It the better, Enough money has been squandered
foolishly lo teach, us nol to take chances. .    t    .

The Labor Day celebration at' Cranbrook was a howling success. The
weather wiis fine and the Cranbrookera
left nothing undone that would add to
the attraction of; their attractive' little
city.   Beg pardonfor the little.    '
Every business place from the .lar^-,
est store to the smallest candy shop
had ou its Sunday clothes and they hiid
all been'freehly starched and Ironed. ~
- Nearly a thousand people were transported by rail from the outlying towns
and camps. ' Hundreds came by carriage and on horseback until' there
must have be?n nearly two thousand
people adden to tho population .of Cran
brook for the dav, and thoy were all
happy except Ohief Morris We ,can't
see why so handsome a man should be
continually spoiling his beauty with a
frown      -; 0
The train from Fernie bearinpr near
ly three hundred people was tho last to
arrive and as soon  as dipt.   McEvoy
had his Ea»t Kootenay Rifles,  fifty s'x
stroiifr formed and placed in the procession with ihe  Forme band   in   tha
lead, the show begran and  it  was cer
tainly the finest show we had ever seen
in EaHt   Kootenay."   The  procession
was fully half a niile long aud was mado
up of as fine a lot of floats and displays
as one could wish to see'   Tbe lumbermen, the merchants and  the   miners
were all well renrosented     The lumbermen made a fine 'display with the
bijr teams and their different displays
vepreeontiiig- thcir.industry.   Tliu Otis
Staples Co. had a large float upon which
was placed several sticks of sawn tini >
her and which was drawn by eight fine
large draft horses, two  of  which   took
the prize as the best draft team.    The
drivi-r of thisueam miiKti have benn-a
cousin 10 Hank Monk judging from tbo
skill with which he handled tbem.
Tbe Standard Lumber Co. had the fin
est dressed team in the line and.carried
off rheprizo.   Thp East Kootenay Co
had a flnat upon whicli a ' small planer
was placed and kept in   motion   by  a
gasoline engine.   This float' took   the
prize as the bust lumber  float      Tbe
King Lumber Co.',had a stick  of tarn
arnc timber 6Mx,l'2",   66  tcet   lony
pliiced on trucks- and dra*'ii by a  fi luteal)-*..   Cranbrook Sash and Door  factory had a Very fine float-, one of the
best in the line but as it was more of- a
manufacturing display than of lumber
it failed'to receive  a prize.'   Ofthe
to tlie Co-operative store but the neat
little float.of.Mr Wilson's the jeweler
was a marvel of-harmony and neatness
Tlere:were so many of these floats that
were "so worthy of*Upraise'tbat ijv« will
have to call a halt for Want of space."
The East Kootenay' Rifles were no
mean part of the. parade and many
cheers ^were accorded thorn 'as tliny
inarched along. As a whole the parade
was splemdid, nearly as good as Fernie
coulddo if bIio should try and we hope
sho will.
The program of sports and contests
of skill wcro nil well filled The drilling contost, chopping, sawing, tie mak

of these Tiluii reprcse'ntaiives of the two

with nn intensity of interest equal to
that which centered in the sanguinary
conii'sts between armies and navies.

at   the   lime of the   adoption  of   the

ol the civilized world for   peace, marks
the beginning of a new era in the conduct of war.     The   brutal  practice ol
t'te victor in war demanding and  obtaining 'great   sums of Mood   money
under the guise of indemnity,   lias   received a check which it is to lie hoped

It is idle to   talk   of thc diplomatic
victory of  Russia   in   the   contest at
,     Portsmouth.    Her representatives gave
up every point for which they had contended   upon   sea   and   land.      The
.Muscovite had violated all pledges as to
the occupation of 'Manchuria and had
looked upon the "little brown man" as
a mere  plaything to   be  disregarded
aud brushed aside as   a troublesome
,.ly.    livery claim set up by the Japanese at-, thaoutbrcak. of hostilities has
been   conceded and in addition  lliey
hold   half of  the   Island of Sahklin.
That they have  refrained from the
lhe temptation of exacting large sums
of money  as payment of costs of the
war, when they had a triumphant army
..   under the leadership of such a man as
Oyuma, ready to deal another staggering blow to their demoralized  antag-
ouists, is lhe wonder ofthe world today.
It Is extremely doubtful if any ISuropuan

, The Flathead country has received a severe setback-awing to the fear

the stupidy of "our Victoria authorities. There can be no denying the
fact that the locators of lands in that

It is now the duty "of the government

ensuing year   in the ordinary form
and not iu the form in which certain
documents purporting to the licences
but which fi-ora the decUion of Mr.
Justicp Martin it would seem wero
hot really license at all, were Issued
from your department."
And whereas it appears that tho issuance of lhe so called licenses was
ultra vires, we therefore claim thac
you hold as trustee for us,the sum or
sums which we have respectively paid
to you to cover the fee neccessary to
procure a license to prospect for coal
and oil on the said lands for the, last
twelve months.
And whereas the claims, in re-
|iect whereof we demand licenses,
wern staked by us under the act in
force at the time we made our respective locations, the fee payable
undir the said act. being fifty dollars.
And whereas the amendments to
the said act making the fee for the
prospector license for coal and oil
$100 in lieu of §r>0 Vas not made retrospective neither has the same been
made retrospective since the pas

We, the understand, therefore demand, in addition to licenses for, the
ensuing twelve months, that you return to us tho sum of $50 per claim
paid to you by us in excess of, thc fee

the alternative, an undertaking from

Victoria,   B. C... Sept.. 5tii.    After
seven consaculive' weeks" consideration
in its various .'phases by llie court's of
, this province, . the -truly   remarkable
. case of George t>* Collins seems no
nourer even tiie beginning of the end
! than on thnt day. early in July when
, thi* San , Francisco   attorney   who . is
defendant in the sensational proceedings  fled ' to77 Victoria  as a' haven of
refuge from a bigamy prosecution; only
to be detained in die grasp ofthe law,
r upon*an extradition'warrant alleging
-perjury.   -Nor; truth to'iell, although
the papers '-have contained (.heir  daily
columns of; and concerning lhe case,
; is.there any more intelligible general
conception ' of. what   it is ,all „ about.
Collins is 9 clever, bright,   somewhat
spectacular and picturesque personality;
and because of his onitorical ability,
. his ready *wit,  and/his affability;'' arid
bonhomme,    the    great   majority  of
Victorians, without more than a guess
at the substantial fads of the case, are
good-naturedly very willing to "hope
that he will get off".   As a simple-matter of verily, -there have been few ...ore
remarkable cases in the history of American jurisprudence than this, the one
and present scene of which is laid in the
British Columbia court.    If the title'ot
California courts and officers be true,
,few more brilliant, more resourceful or
more daring ciiminals than George D.
Collins have operated on the  Pacifie
•slope.    If on the other hand Collins is
to be .believed, he is the victim, of' the
most collosal, tlte most unique, and the
,, most elaborately perfected and comprehensive conspiracy that, has ever yet
been formed,to enmesh and destroy an
individual. . Briefly:   According to1 thc
7evidence of. the State of California,
Collins has for years employed all. his
talents to finding flaws and technical!-;
ties whereby convicted criminals  may
be preserved from-tlw'legal punishment
. of their offences.    As to his own" pise,
'„ he is stsited io nave married one Char-
lotta Newman and also to have been
■"■ unduly intimate with his wife's sister,
.Agnes,  snd upon-the-death of'Agile's
., from diphtheria, Collins is said to have
< ' laid .the foundation for a denial of his
\marrisige with Charlotta by interment
' -of Agnes as his wife, and shortly there-
* rafter    began  . courting    one  Clarice
'. JJlcCurdyi a young Cliicagoan of-con-
- jiderabie property.. They were.in lime
.'   married,   and   upon    this    marriage
(Charlotta being still alive and with her
^Wro^h"1le15^)^fie*Bigamy proceed^
', tags arc based.. .Since bigamy: is not
&n extraditable crime,  the California
I authorities seek to regain possession of
^CoUiris upon proceedings for perjury,
.   lie having in applying'-tbr his Inst mar'
-triage license made affidavit as required
7 by tlieCaliforiiia practise of his eligibility to cont.ra4.-t al marriage.   On. the
'.' inther hand, Collins avws that he is the
victim of,a. most comprehensive conspiracy.   The plot,  he declares, was
worked up by. theHibernia Bank of,
San Francisco, out of revenge because
lie would not quash proceedings begun
hy n client against tlie bank through
which it stands to lose large sums of
money.   This conspiracy, he says further, is joined in by the press, the entire
bur awociutinn, ths judges, and the
-grand  jury   of   San   Francisco—the
1 judges out ol hatred because of his having secured reversals of their decinions,'
the others because he has employed his
talents as nn attorney to legally protect the criminal element.   As for his
own ense, he alleges that he never was
married  to Charlotta; that  ho  whs
married to Agnes, first by contract and
later, at her request, in tbe church, nl
the date given by the prosecution ns
that of his wedding with Charlotta ; he
declares thai ho applied for tlio license
with the nn me in blnnkj and thnt some
one else 'tilled In    "Charlotta"   for
"Agnci";  he assort*! thnt the priest
wus wrong ns lo the bride's mime, so
was the recorder of marriages, so were
the   witnesses, nnd the doctors who
lmve sworn to his children being the
children of Charlotta and iiNsUtrd by
them Into this troublous world, "have
eternally damned with   perjury their
Immortal soult.".   Upon the first pro.
ceedings in the British Columbia court,
the common application for extradition
before County judge Lamp-nun, that
learned gentlemitn decided lhat Collins
must go back.    Il whs pointed out tho
extradition Is hut the preliminary to a
just trial—thnt It Is the duty to return
the prisoner if a prima facie rase he
made out, und that (since the trial is to
follow) the itccused may uot hs In n

J Graham island has. long been known to
contain excellent bituminous coal areas.
Of 30,000 acres, of these lands a syndicate has for years been owners, and
within recent mouths covetous eyes
have been directed thereto by wealthy
.Montrealers for whom W. F." Borland
is acting as general agent.. Mr. Borland with a party of nine completed a
three months inspection a little more
than two weeks ago. He was evidently impressed with the value of, the
property, for he forthwith approached
iMajor John Nicholles, the head of the
Victoria syndicate, proposing an out-
and-out purchase at $700,600. This
offer was laid before the others interest
ed, Messrs. C. F. Todd, Wm. "Wilson,
S. J. Pitts and .W*.A. Robertson, the
latter being the original prospector, and
has been accepted. Mr. Borland is
now en route to Montreal to confer
with his associates, and active exploitation is to begiii in the spring. ' As a
preliminary a large sawmill'-is to be
erected, and incidental to the development of the new collieries a forty mile
long railway line must be built. For
this, as well as for charting and mapping the coast, improving harbors, etc.,
aid will be sought from both, the federal and the provincial parliaments at
their next sittings.   .    .
'   It is doubtful indeed   if  history can
provide a precedent for a minor happening in connection with  the sitting of
the   Admiralty court at this city last
Friday, when Hon. Justice Martin confirmed the seizure and ordered the forfeiture of the Seattle halibut-poaching
schooner North.    His Lordship on that
occasion   appe.ired wearing the %,'tg,
and directed counsel and registrar to
wear the horsehair also.    As all British
Columbia is aw.iie,  there was an act
passed during the Ia*.t session  of the
legislature, at the initiative   of Stuart
Henderson,   M. P.  P., abolishing the
wig in British Columbia courts, wherein before, its wearing had'been at first
compulsory and then optional.    It is no
secret that Hon. Justice Martin's extreme regard   for  the    fashions aiid
millinery of the court,  carried   in  the
opinion of many to ihe  point of ludicrous buffoonery,  was   the excuse for
enactment; and while.it was before. the
House He strenously opposed ■ its passage, urging resistance also after it  had
become law but being overrqled by his
bipther judges.    In Admiralty, matters
in this province, however, Hon. Justice
Martin is a power unto himself... Hence
the opportunity   was taken   to  throw
■uo"w-iT"th¥gage~6f"Kittle to the "legislature; and most curiously the Attorney-
General, whose duly it is to champion
and defend   provincial authority and
law, was a" joint   offender . with- His
Lordship.    Hon. Mr. Wilson has also
cherished a lingering affection for  lie
wig and other emblems of the old court
days, and   required little  convincing,
although at.first he declared himself in
mutiny.   The statute, it may be pointed out, forbids explicity the wearing of
the   "customary   official   wig in any
court in British Columbia," and hence,
Hon. Justice Martin's contention that
the Admiralty court is federal, and not
a court of British Columbia, is held by
lending lawyers to be unsound.     But
the point that is material is that, a
statute being placed among tho laws
of the  province, a judge should be
found in British Columbia to set an
example of contempt for  law, and an
Attorney-General to join him  in  disobedience of the very laws he Is sworn
to assert nnd maintain.    It is in order
for Justice Marl in,1 Hon.  Mr. Wilson
and- Registrar TyrwIiitl-Drnlto-to be
proceeded against at nny time for an
indictable offence
shipped-to tbe Northwest Territories
and. Manitoba will be ,200 carloads. -
The largest and best tomato farm on
the Pacific coast is that of Gelatly &
Soils, In "the Okanajjan valley. They
exported last year 14,000 crates of
tomatoes.' Thomas JOarl, of Lytton,
will have 40,000 pounds of grapes this
year for export. In the Sirnilkameen
I found all of the finest grades of
European grapes growingto perfection?
I never saw such' large clusters; they
were a foot in length." These facts show
the great superiorty of our soil and
climate for fruit raising. Why, man
alive, British Columbia cannot fail to
becbrnr'one if the greatest fruit growing countries in the world owing to tho
fact that it has such splendid soil and
so superb a climate.
"One of the principal objects of,'my
visit to Rossland is to induce the merchants here to jnirchaee the fruit they
sell from the fruit growers of the pro
vince. I desire also to induce the- men
who raise the frult.to cater more to thr
home market, instead of exporting to
the Northwest Territories. The result of this will be the keeping of the
money .sent out for fruit at home- and
the preventing of tbe introduction of
pests in the homo orchards. Wo have
no coiliri moth, no San Jose scale or
other fruit pests to amount to anything
here. The orchards nre clean, and the
fruits are of a-superior quality and not
speckled and bored by pests of all kinds
as some of. the fruit that ia brought in
here from the States is."      '"   ■>
The above we clip.froni the Rossland
Minor, and is a report of .Mr.' Cunningham, government fruit inspector, who
was in Fernie a few days ago. While
here he coiidurnued some fruit whicli
h'ad been shipped in from Washington
and made arrangements at Gateway
to have the. fruit coming in at that
point held for twenty four hours bc-foro
being allowed to reach its destination.
This may be alright but our, fruit "deal
era and their customers dn not seem to
be in love with the scheme.' We havo
no fruit trees here and we cannot sen
that a rigid enforcement of the regulations will benefit anybody but the
Okanogan mnn who has fruit to sell.
One of our fruit dealers reports that the
inspector visited his place and proposed
to condemn and destroy somo, fh*e
looking peaches which he had on dis
play In his window, but thc dealer
objected to the method of inspection
and the inspector left, the store without
carrying out his intention of condemn
ing the fruit. There is such a thing as
overzealousness. . ',,

The fact,, he, said, that ,the government of.Australia owns .and operates

great tracts of country lhat private corporations would not touch because it
would be many years before there

the government thus owning all the

E. O. Smith's Farming, Success.
Cranbrook .Herald,
It has often been said "that anything
could bo grown with irrigation in East
Kootenay, but it waB for EC Smith
to show that almost anything can be
grown, at any rate in certain parts of
East Kootenay, without Irrigation. A
visit to the Smith ranch on St. Marys
prairie will convince anyone of this
fact. M r. Smith has 150 acres of grain,
or rather 150 acres of stubble, where
the grain stood, for the stacks iu his
barnyard and the grain in his barns
bear witness to the (act that thero line
been "something doing" In the way of
•Train raising on tho prairio this year.
The main crop was barley, and besides, wheat, oats and spletz, to say
nothing of mixed crops of grain grown
for hay atid timothy .which latter yielded one and a half tons" to the aero,
which is conceded to be a great, crop
considering that this was the first year
it had been planted. Hoots also do
splendidly on Mr. Smith's ranch.
Beets weighing 18 pounds can be seen
and besideB there is a fine crop of tur-
nipp, carrots and potatoes Mr Smith
also planted a number of fruit trees and
a strawberry patch all of, which Beein to
be dmii!' well.
All the above has been done without
tho aid of  water,  except the  nauual
depot    "'"'"fall, aud lt seems to prove conclus-
'   ivoly that so far as the St Marys prairie
is concerned irrigation is not necessary.
Others, besides Mr. Smith, seem   to
believe this, because every inch of land
on the St.  Marys prairie   has   been
bought this year.
