advisable to send a deputation to meet

with these gentlemen, we learnt of how
much they enjoyed their trip through
and of their admiration of the scenery
en route, as well us of their satisfaction with the general condition of the
things along the line. Mr. Daly was
particularly jub.laiit over the wheat
prospects in Manitoba and the N. W,
Territories, and Mr. Allan was, as ull
milling men are, full of the great prospects ahead for British Columbia iu
mining matters. We like to have
people admire good things when they

Jubilee landing  is  about  4'i mile*
from  Golden, following the  course of
the river,     There are only some six or
seven squatters in this whole distance.
The valley is nearly two miles wide so
far, with good laud   on either side.
Some of it is subject to overflow from
the Columbia, but  could easily be reclaimed   by   a   small    dyke   on   the
on the banks of the river at an average
height ot one foot  for the whole distance.     This  would  not cost a large
amount and would make the land very
valuable.     Any person travelling this
route cannot but express surprise that
this long stretch of land is lying idle,
some of it with natural meadows ready
for the mowing machine, whilst hay
has been shipped up on the Duchess at
a cost  of   S>0  per  ton.     Here is the
oeeret:     Tue 41 miles  comes  within
the 20 mile radius of  tlio C.P.R. railway belt, from Loniichoil.    It has not
yet been  surveyed, or any steps taken
to have it settled.     The Federal Government should lose no time in getting
this land surveyed, and placed on the
market.     Farther up th" C.P.R. liuvo

Beyond Jubilee Landing 2>. miles
Harry Ban has 1120 acres, of which
150 are goo i agricultural land. He
was a passenger on I he Duchess and
had recently come from the Okauagau
country. Hj considers that there is a
greater extent by fur of agricultural
land iu East Kootenay titan iu Okana-
gau, if these small dykes spoken of
were constructed. The valley here is
between six and eight miles wide.
Opposite Bait's place is Galena landing and post-office, kept by Geo. M-i-
Millau, who has UJO acres nearly ull
arable, I.i this neighborhood there
are about Six -settlers. Splllamaclieetl
and Bugaboo rivers, or tweaks, empty
into '.lie Columbia near here. As the
valley widens it can bo lUsorilwd as
rolling a it.I b.isa , ark-like appearance,
't'ne day was hue as we followed the
course, of the river, which, winding in
and out, gave us u grand opportunity
lo see the landscape which at this time
of the ye.tr is robed in a waving greca. I
copper. Last season be ran uu open
cut with l'i-foot face at the back and
sunk a shaft. It is the only mine
worked on Horso Thief creek. In some
places of the river wo noticed piling
that had been done by the Federal
Government to assist navigation, and
now with the Dominion's powerful
dredge the channel will soon be made
more oasy to navigate.
About 58 miles brings us to Whisky
hill. Some years ago a puck train
laden with whisky was being taken
from the American side to the 20-milo
belt when one of the mules rolled over
the bank with three kegs of Irish. A
packer, venturing to save the "booze,''
lost his footing, when packer, mule
and whisky rolled to tbo bottom -

Atchison's farm to our left. His home
is known as a stopping house ou the

" Black Shorty " and is a noted bear

It is doubtful if we could have tied
up at a prettier spot. Red Rock is
���>00 feet high, rugged, with variegated
tints of green aud yellow, hacked by
terraces, sparselv wooded. Close beside it is a leaping cataract. How I
wished I ivero an artist, for, however
great the imagination, it would be
bard indeed to conceive so grand a
landscape scene. The next morning,
some two miles farther brought us to
almost a perfect S in the river; so
sharp are the turns that a rope is used
to assist iu making them. At another
point two turns are made at right
angles. Coming down stream Capt.
Armstrong informed me that he ran
her nose to the batik, allowed her tu
turn stern downwards, back to the
next turn, when the bow would float
down. S .eh turns are rather remarkable. Going up we used the rope. To
our left are several settlers. T.io valley
is now about 15 miles wide, and is a
beautiful grazing country with rolling
mils, ami the mountains covered with
uuiich grass ill its virgin purity, and
lotted over with just enough (ir trees
for shade aud shelter. I wus informed
that there was some Provincial Government land along hero, outside of the
C.P.R. blocks, that is ope.i for preemption.
On reaching Sinclair, 85 miles or
river is left behind. Horn Capt. Gordon has a very fine slice,! ranch. He
imported a few car loads of sheep last
fall as au exper.inent. T.iey have
done remarkably well, although the
winter was the most severe that has
been known. I; is, I ualieve, his intention to import a large blind this
season. I should judge that the
country is admirably adapted for the
successful breeding of sheep and no
doubt before long there will bo saverul
engaged iu the industry, One of our
passjngers, who had come direct from
the old sod, was bound for Captain
Gordon's ranch, where he purposes

some live or six miles by the river and
lake.      The   steamer   stopped   at the
mouth of Toby Creek to take on wood,
when  some ono told me, on inquiry,
that the distance to Windermere was
one mile.      Being told that tho Win-
deromero wagon road could be reached
by going back towards the mountains,
I   started, intending   to get   to that
place some time before tho boat.    After
walking   and    running   about   three
miles, an  Indian  informed  me that I
had   yet live   miles   to cover   before
I could reach   my destination  bv the
route  that I was  obliged to  travel.
This seemed hard lines, and, coupled
with the fear of losing the boat, I was
not in a happy mood.     But on I ran,
with tlio  perspiration  running down
my  face, until  two   more miles were
passed ;  but no  wagon  road  wus yet
reached, so my course was very uncertain.      Luckily   for  ine I  met E. T.
Johnston, who has  some 1)00 acres in
the vicinity and he kindly  offered to
pilot me to the Landing.     Wo went a
short distance, when  we saw that tho
steamer was some two or three miles
behind ;   and then there was plenty of
time to view the pretty fields of grain
and hay.      By this  time the reservation was passed, and  better improved
farms   were before us.     The land is
sandy loam and very productive.   Mr
Johnston raised 4J,100 lbs of potatoes
off two acres.     Wheat yields 40 bushels  to the  acre, which   will  surely
justify some one iu putting up a grist
mill   at   Windermere.    Timothy hay
yields from two to three tons per acre.
We crossed over the Windermere half-
mile kite-shaped race-track, and I may
say  that the site is all  that  can bo
desired.     The track is level, and the
horses that had   been on it training
were then  ut Golden  in  readiness for
the races.

lake bearing the same name. The

The following cviilenuo wns taken for
the defence:
f. W. AYI.MF.ll,
sworn, said : -1 know a place
by the name ol Johnson ranch.
I have seen Johnson's from the wagon
road, approaching it ���from the south.
Cross-examined by Mr. Moodie-I
do not know how far south I was.
JAS.  lllir.EKS.
sworn, said:-I know the John-
ton ranch. Along the road tor about
half a mile there aro four or five
places you can see it plain. It is the
house that can be seen plainly from tlie
road. Wo saw a dog and a cat from
Ihe road, wlmu coming down this time,
coming out of the door. I passed on
the tilth, March. I stopped at Shorty's
lor dinner. Jas. McKay and Teddy
Cain came to Shorty's while I was
there. Jim McKay came in about half
an hour after I arrived. Cain arrived
probably hull' an hour after McKay,
i-arinuur arrived very shortly after.
Mr. Hev.iu also uauiu while I was there.
Just after McKay. The timber is cotton wood and brush.
Cross-examined by Mr. Moodie* -I
remember u littlo rise guiug south. I
have beuu over the rutil several tunes.*.
I know a lull culled Shorty's bill.goiug
south. I do not know ol any other
view except those named.
HAVE  I.AllJlOUlt,
sworn, said: -I was at the Johnson ranch on the liiih day of
March Inst. I shook hands with Mrs.
Johnson. The house is in view along
the wagon road from the North to opposite it- Most of it is pretty clear.
I do not know how many views there
are. The clearest view of the house is a
little past the trail leading; down to the
house. There are three trails running
out from Johnson's house. There is a
point of view somewhere close lo i ho!
trail, I think a little bit below it; north
The distance of the view on the south
trail is about liOO yards. There is a
good view in winter; not si clear, but
Mill a good view at present. I saw
Mrs. Johnson come to tlie door, I suppose it was her, she was standing there
Cross-examined hy Mr. Moodie: -
The best view of the house is from the
knoll and pretty near opposite t be house
It is not the best view.. The distunce
of the view across lo the house is about
evidence ho had given relative to the
distance at the point at which he had
waited for Larmour south of the
strui.'ht trail leading down to Johnson's house. He re-affirmed his Hist
statement to the effect that as far as he
could recollect the distance was about
forty or fifty rods.
Ii   giving judgment Mr.  Cummins
said :���This point  being made certain
clears up the only doubt remaining in
my  mind    ns   to    what   my   judgment     should    be.     The    point,   at
which   Cain    waited    was,   according to the evidence, easily  within the
distance at  which small objects could
lie   recogniiied   nt   the   house;      and
it     has    also     been     shown     that
there was nt  least one point n short
distance    further    along   the    ro.ul
from which McKay could have had a
good view of the  house.     In  proving
perjury against one who, for instance,
has sworn  to having seen  a certain
tiling happen, it is first of all necessary
to prove that the defendant could not
possibly   have seen  that   to which lie
bad sworn, either for the reason  that
it did not happen at all, or by proving
him to have been situiiteu that hecould
not possibly have seen it, even   had it
happened.     The burden' of this proof
rests on the prosecution, and I think iu
proving perjury  the proof should  be
strong.    In this case the only evidence
as  to  the  first,  point has iieoii hy the
defence, ami has been confirmatory  of
tho prisoner's evidence at Donald.as to
the sliiikiin- ol hands.    As to the second point it has not been  shown that
t he prisoner could not possibly havo seen
from his position on the road what he
claimed to have seen, and the preponderance of testimony  bus  favored  the
supposition that there are several views
of the house from the road south of the
point nt which Cain  waited.    I think
the prosecution has not established the
point which was primarily  necessary
in order to make their case, and I feel
it my duty to dischnrge the prisoner.

Canal Flat with Mr. Gamble a few
.tears ago. I stopped at the hotel.
(Mr. Moodie here objected to these
questions as having nothing to do with
the case ) There was no altercation.
I told him my hands were tied. These
remarks were made in a loud tone of
voice in the presence of others. He
threatened to tramp on my neck, the
language was threatening throughout.

lansriiage aud disturbing the peace,
Mr. Sprm-geappeai-edfor the defendant, nnd Mr. Moodie conducted Iih
own case. The defendant pleaded not
guilty to the charge. The following
evidence was tho:t taken ou behalf of
the prosecution -

along the wagon road for half a mile
off and on. You can see il from a point

distance of about 1100 yard*.

said you remember that I paid you

that was not true. Hu said you're a
nice man to look after the morals of
tlie town He called me a-(the expression here used is too vile to appear McKay went up to Mr. Moo-lie, and to
in print). I told him I was a peace the best of my memory for I was not

for nearly a miittttes, ami naturally
j.i<'ii���ii wo went all trying not to
listen to it. Mr. Moodie did not reply
to him except to say that there were
witnesses present, or something like
that. I remember, near the beginning
Moodie saying he was a peace officer
and that his hands were tied. I spoke
to Mr. Moodie and advised him to go
away, which he did. Moodie said that
bis hands were tied through his position us a peace odiuon I spoke to McKay telling him that, it was unfair to
attack in that way a man who ou
account of his position coul 1 not hit
him Fordoing so, mid McKay answered
me telling me that it was none of my
business. I remember McKay's saying
words to the effect that that was what
ho wanted Moodie to do, (in reference
to the hitting). Tlie nature of the
language was eettainly abusive and;
violci.it in tone, lr.\t. I could not

Mr. Moodie walked over
towards the station when I told him
he had better do so.
Cross-examined by Mr. Spragge: ���
There was no yelling. The tone of
voice was more than distinct. The
lone of McKay's voice was that ordinarily used iu abuse of a matt who is
