American Agitators Organize
to Seize Yukon Riches.
The ttory of thi "Grett Yukon Con
.piracy" ii given below as it appeared
in one of our exchanges. Tin whole
affair hat been so sensational that it
would be wise to take even this ttorj
with a grain of tait
Thon wat an organized conspiracy
to seize Dawson, secure the barracks
of the North West mounted police with
arms and ammunition, loot the banks
and pillage Hit metropolis of the rich
northern gold field. Jas. Seeley. head
of the secret service of the Northwest
mounted police says that not only was
there a conspiracy to overthrow Can
adian rule in.tbe Yukon, and loot Dew*
���on, but the scheme hatched by the
conspirators was a feasible one, and its
its existence not been discovered by tht
memberi of tbe secret service, and nipped in the bnd, the raiders could have
accomplished their purpose, nnd after
taking Dawson, could have held that
place snd the Yukon for six weeks or
two montht. And thtn���. By then
they would be overwhelmed and each
man of tht raiders would be a fugitive
from tht avengers.
The conspiracy was born in Dawton
and had a branch at Skagway, but no
existence in anv other point to the
south of'Skagway, although efforts
were made lo secure the assistance of
pro Boer sympathizers in 8eattle and
other points in the United States. It
It was at Dawson th.tt the plot was
hatched Ust summer. Several Amen*
can Fenians who had drifted to Daw-'
sou got together and formed an organization which was oalled'the Order uf
the Midnight Sun. A number of crank
and pro*Boers, haters of British rule
and others were gathered in, and tke
order grew uutil there were several
hundred adherents in September, when
the members of the secret service in
the Yukon became aware of its exist
ence. With over 500 adherents to the
projected raid in the north, it was de
cided to act as soon as the Yukon uss
closed to travel, and had not the police
of lhe north checkmated the plot, the
raider) had laid plant to surprise the
force at Dawson, seizing th. arms and
ammunition in the barracks. The
banks were to be looted and the richer
placer mines of the creeks contiguous
to Dawson raided bv detachment* ol
the conspirators. For three or four
weeks they expected to be In charge si
Dawson, having disposed of the N. W.
M, I', and confident that troops could
not reach them over the ice for at ls-ast
six weeks, and the whole treasure thus
secured und the place pillaged, thev
would make tbeir escape.
The secretary of the organization is
in Seattle, whither he led on learning
of the discovery of all the facts con
corning the plot.-Colonist.
London, Nov. 22-The judicial com*
mine* of the Privy Counoil, at it* sitting today, advised tht King to disoblige the judgment ot the Court of
Kin's Bench, Manitoba, dated Feb. 23,
1901, declaring that the Manitoba
Liquor or Prohibition Act to be -incou-
���titullonil and void on the ground that
the power ef the province to pats such
legislation doei not oome wiihiu sec
tion 92 of the British North America
Aot, wherein the province Iihi power
to legislate in rc-i-rd to property and
civic righti.
Lord McNaugli'on delivered I he judgment, in which the law lords said that
although thequestions submitted to the
Court of King's Bench in Manitoba
numbered eleven, only oue question
was considered in the Court of Kiuu's
Bench, and their lordships hnd rou
stdered only one quest Iou in tke judicial committee of the Privy Council,
rhe question wil: Had the Manitoba
' legsjtlaturs) power tn past the Act t
if not, tn what |>artioular respect had
the legislature exceeded its powers?
Referring to lection 119 of tht Maui
toha Liquor Act (thit section appears
io recognise suoh limitations at section
92 of lhe B. N. A. Act imjiosei on tht
powtr of the province), their lord'hi|l
declare that the provit'ons of sectioi.s
119 are as muoh a part of Ihe Ao, as
any other taction and that thet. pro*
vltioni must have their full effect in
exempting |from the operation of the
act all bona fide transactions in liquor
which come within its terms.
The Court of King's Bench in Mini*
toba in deciding the Liquor Act to be
unconstitutional, said : "It is enough
to say that the provision* of the Aot
are extremely ttriugtnt, more stringent
probably than anything to be found in
any legislation of a similar kind for
that matter, and unless the act is to
become t dead letter, il 'must interfere
With tke revenue of the Dominion, with
tbe licensed trades of the province of
Minitoba md indirectly with business
operations beyond tbe limits of the
province." These wordt represent tbl
grounds on wbich lhe court of Kinjj's
Bench in Manitoba declared th. Liquor
Act to be unconstitutional and in excess of the powers conferred by section
-i of ihe B.N.A. Act, authorizing the
province to legislate in regard to property and civic rights.
The judgment as deliyertd by Lord
McNau-shton notes lhe objections, but
goes on to say ihat in the opinion oi
their lordships these objections ard
removed by the judgment of the judicial committee of the Privy Council in
the case of the attorney-general .1 Ontario vt. the attorney-general of the
Lord McNaughion declared that five
law lords of the judicial committee who*
heard the case, wuuld advise His Majesty the King, that the judgment of
the Court of King's Bench ol Manitoba-
dated Feb. 23, 1901, be discharged,
substituting the committee's aniwer to
tbe eleven questions. The judicial
committee of the Privy Council declared tbat the legislative assembly of
Manitoba had jurisdiction to enact the
act. Their lordships are of opinion
that tbt answer to question one, answers questions two to eleven and that
iherefore no useful answer oan be given
to these questions.
Their lordships further order that
there shall be no costs between the
parties to this case, the appeal of the
attorney-general of Manitoba against
tht Court of King's Bench.

Thursday, November 28th, was the
day let apart by Proclamation to be
observed as a day ol National giving ol
thanks lor favors received during the
passt year. This praiseworthy custom.
ftunded by the Pilgrim Father! It essentially a New'World feast, and this
first observance olit in the twentieth
century, has been .entered into with
true spirit by all Canada. The year
just drawing to a cloaa has been the
host in onr history. On all handt there
is to Ise found evidence ol increasing
prosperity, for which due acknowledgement has been made. Locally, we
have s satisfactory growth to record,
while the Province has had a fairly
good year,  in   sjsite ot   many   things
which werelooktd upon as retarding
its development.
It it ranch to be regietted that our
province seems doomed to endure for a
season one of our periodical attacks of
what may be termed  "political  hysteria."     All   Aine'ican   corporation,
under cover of the V., V. ft E. railway,
sought to obtain an enormous subsidy
from   ihe    Provincial    Government.
Finding this   impossible,   instead  ol
waiting for a session of the Legislature
and'hen threshing the mailer out on
tha lloor ofthe House, a little coterie of
disappointed political hacks art can-
ducting a series of publio  meetings at
which the verdict is always "unani-
ma.is'' against the Government.   As
will be seen by onr news columns the
Hon. W. C. Wells has done valuabll
work in the sliori time he hat siieui in
the enst, nnd we have-not lb. slightest doubt but thut when  tbe Hiuip
meats the much adveriiied  "solid Opposition' will be found to havt exinad
only in tho diseased imagination ofthe
politicians and newsjispers who are at
nreseat earning th* money supplied by
a foreign railway corporation in an
endeavor t* undermine ih* stability of
th* pretent administration.
The decision of thn Privy Council,
on the validity of the Manitoba Liquor
Act, as given in our news columns,
will hnve a far-reaching effect on
provincial politics throughout th* Dominion. The temperance parly have,
a. .result of this judgment, a good reason to refuse their support to any
party that does oot pledge itself to
prompt and decisive action on the
question of prohibition. As to the
praotibility ol the Manitoba Act there
are many differences of opinion, and the
measure of success attained by th* authorities of the Prairie province in enforcing itt provisions will be watched

Tl.e announcement that E. V. Bod-

oria rendered vacant by. th. resigns
tion of J. H, Turner, will be received
wiih mixed feelings by  the electorate
uf that city, and by  lb* peoplo of the
province generally.   Hud Mr. Bodwell
contested that riding or any riding iu
Britisli Columbia at  the last   general
election, hi*  nomination would have
Iseen applu6sled   not  by  one,  hut  by
every class in the community, and his
election would have been beyond a per-
adventure.   His presenco in the political arena would have been haled as a
promise uf better conditions  than had
vet obtained in our politic;.! affairs.    I:
would have been  taken  by  the peo|,le
us an   assurance that men of ability
.slid character were, at leugih, cohosh n-
iug themselves in  the welfare of the
country, and were offering their ser
vice, as guardians of the publiu in.er
usis.     With   a representative of his
stamp in the legislature,  the popular
mind  would   have   been  more easily
sutistitd    that  errors   iu   legislation
would less easily occur, thai .lie management of the provincial estalt would
be more  careful and intelligent and
especially that all fear of sacrifices to
individual or corporate greed would at
once cease. '
