methods of aome country merchants,

all the proprietors should nit quietly down and wait for customers to

between the two methods and the
remedy is ns plain as the sun in tho

small store In the country town cannot afford blgh priced advertisements
costing $5,000 to 810,QUO per day ,

Lei ns repeat that country newspapers, if properly used, are positivo

A very Important judgment was
banded down recently in tbe Supremo
court ol Canada, In the action ol
Brownleo v. Mcintosh, afleoting the
validity nf a contract whlob in lied to
diaolose the real owners ol property
under the Brltlah Columbia Land aot
TtiiH was nn appeal by plaintifl
from the oourt ol appeal ol Brltlan
Columbia, whlob allowed (Mr. ,1hh
tlce Irving dissenting) an appeal by
the defendant Irom ths judgment ol
bia honor Judge Grant '" favor of
plaintiff. Tli" appeal waa dismissed
with oostft. B.S, Taylor, K.O., ap
peered lor the plaintiff, and w,l>.A
Ritchie, K.O., for defendonl.
Mr, Juatlce Duff, In ii"' Judgment,
apokeaa followa: "Tho plalntlffbaa
es Iiim claim mi tbe contract which lm
nlle [es be entered into with the >i<-
fondant nnd hin associate, Qarnham,
in the spring of 1911, by which thoj
agreed that if tho plaintifl would assist iin'in in selling certain lands in
respect of which they li id a contr id
ni purchase with tb* B.C. government
they would remunerate bim. Tha land
in question comprises about seven
thousand acres of surveyed land in
the northi ni pari of British Columbia
These lands have hern surveyed by
the plaintifl under contract with thu
government. In tbe preceding autumn
the |iiMnitii\, acting fur,the defendant
and bis as cate li il applli il lor tho
purchase of tho lands In the names ol
different persons—there were ten or
twelve parcels in all—nominated by
tin in, and the applicar'ons having
been accepted tee bad secured tho execution nf conveyances by the appli -
emits to tho defendant Mclntoab in
trust for Qarnham and Mclntoah.For
tins the appellant must, pay twenty-
live cents nn acre. Later in the
Bprlng of Hill, according to tbe plain
tiff's story, Mcintosh anil Qarnham
made the further arrangement already mentioned, on whicb the act-
Ion waa brought, It is perfectly ob
vioim that the scheme entered upon
and successfully carried out by Mc-
Intosb and Qarnham through the ag
em i tho pi itiitiiT was a fraud up
on tbe land act. The conditions upon which the Burvey of public lands
ml| I lee purchased in 1910 were tho-
bo I.,',1 down in sections -'it an l 86 ol
nd Ai     il 1008."
His  lordship then  rend  the  clause?
of the act.
' ". ' ng, Mr. .lattice Dufl said:
"Moll toab, Qarnham and tbe plain-
no I ol cours ■ be entitled to
■ under the provialons of this
seed.m more than three separate
tracts of land without bavins; com
piled with the conditions as to Improvements. The plan adopted to evade these provisions waa to make a
niiin' ir ul applications in tbe name
of th" li..mil,-es of Mcintosh and (ln-
rnham. The scheme was to obtain
crown grants of these lands In viola-
I the provisions of the statute,
although In    professed    compliance
with   them,   and   then   -•'ll   the   la-iils
to purchaaera     who In the   ..r
course would    know nothing of ths
contrivance  which  hud  heen resorted
to.   Any agreement which had   been
entered  into for the purpose of car-
rying out,  or facilitating  the carry-
inc  out  of  it,  should  become  apparent.   Thc     contract sot up     by the
plaintiff under which he agreed to ns-
s'sl   In the sale of the lands is nocca
sarily I tinted by the character of the
scheme  as a   whole.   It   follows    thnt
the action ought to be dlsmli led,"

One Ol the difficult engineering
(eats carried out In connection with
thc tunnel undertaking wus the diversion of the course ol the Illecillewaet river. This stream which dur
ing the spring freshets assumes the
dimensions of a raging torrent, presented a great handicap as its original channel crossed the location of the
approaches at a point where a deep
cutting had to be excavated to se-
i ,i■■ the necessary grade tor the entrance to the tunnel and then skirted
the route for a considerable distance.
While measures could have been taken
effectively for currying tbe tracks on
treslb's or bridges there would still
have been a danger of the river encroaching on the lin ■ or undermining
the roadbed, and si it was decided
to change 'the course of the
To accomplish this purpose and to
prevent future trouble a deep trench
nearly a mile long Was dug on tin
left side of the approaches. This will
act. as  a  continuation ot  the  original
channel of the river and will   divert
the sir'am past the cutting to a
point where an arched culvert will
tarn the water under the track again
i i the ild it, e I ed on the right
side of  the  railway.
The tunnel contract covers eight
miles of the Improvement scheme
which will extend to Six Mile Creek,
and Includes the construction of the
