BEFORE TIE COEET
Important Judgment by Mr.
Justice Drake.
IN LOCATING A OLAIM
Tho Judge Holds That Mineral Claim
Must Be a Separate and Definite
Plot of Ground.
The civil list having been exhausted
publio interest in Oourt appeared
to have Hugged Yesterday afternoon
the audience had dwindled down to
zero to the intense gratification of
Bench and Bar who at last were able
to sit in a fairly well ventilated room.
Mr. Justice Drake gave judgment in
the important case of Darts vs. St.
Kevemo referred to in Wednesday's
Miner. The judge said that to his
mind it was clear from the Mineral
Aot that only oue separate and definite
plot of ground could be located as a
mineral claim. He therefore held that
the defendants' location was invalid
and gave judgment for the plaintiff
with costs. It was understood that
the case could bo appealed and, if necessary carried to the   Privy   Council.
In the case of Vanstone& Ruckworth
a motion was made by Mr. R. M.
Macdonald on behalf of thn defendant
Buckworth, to strike out the statement
of claim delivered hy the plaintiff on
tho ground that the same was embarrassing. Tho judge ordered that the
Statement of claim should be amended
with costs in the rase. Mr. S. S. Taylor, Q. 0.| appeared   for tho plaintiff.
In the case of Richer vs. Savage.
Mr. H. Mi Maedonuld moved for judgment on behalf of the plaintiff to rescind a lease for nonpayment of rent.
The defendant was not represented
mid the judge gave judgment for the
plaintiff accordingly,
In the case of Bolandev Anderson v.
Mr. \V. A. Macdonald, Q C. appeared
for the plaintiff and opposed an application on behalf of the defendant,
represented by Mr. S. S. Taylor, Q.
0.. for an adjournment. The judge
hold that the case should go to trial,
whereupon Mr. Taylor withdrew and
judgment was given for the plaintiff.
Tho action was for money due on a
contract for work done in '.. mine.
In Alexander vs. Heath, Mr. R.
M. Macdonald appeared for the plaintiff, and asked for an adjournment
which was opposed by Mr. \V. A. Macdonald, Q. 0., for the defendants.
The judge allowed the case to stand
ht the bottom of tho list, the plaintiff
to pay the costs of the day.
The ease of Dundee vs. Richardson
was settled out of Court. This was
an action to recover a half interest in
the River Kden mineral claim, Simil-
kamemi district. It was arranged that
the plaintiff should have a transfer of
the one half interest ho caimod upon
payment of the sum of $ 1.100.
Throe cases namely, Miln vs. Brid-
good, Bain vs. Reco nnd Stnel vs.Doon,
were called but in each case one of the
parties was not prepared to go 'o trial.
The judge ordered tho enses to stnnd at
the bottom of the list, the dolaying
parties in each case to pay the costs
of the day.
Tho case of Kelly vs. Thn Hall
Mines was mentioned and it was arranged not to bring nn this oaso before
next Monday. Thsn camo the case
of F. Marten vs. Brown is whioh the
plaintiff sought for a dissolution nf
partnership, and an account. Mr. W
A. Macdonald, Q. 0., appeared for
the plaintiff; Mr. E. V. Bodwoll. Q.
0., for the defendant.
Thn plaintiff's case was that ho and
the defendant Brown were partners in
the Whitewater Deep Hotnl under a
partnership agreement, that the defendant hnd broken thn terms of the
partnership, hnd removed good-* from
the hotel and had finally locked up thn
building and taken possession of the
samo. ���
Thn plaintiff Marton was called and
examined in order to nrovo tho partnership. Several books of accounts
wero produced tn which the plaintiff's
attention was directed. ���
The defence denied tho partnership
nnd nlleged that tho plnutiff was only
manager for the defendant. Mr. Bod-
well crossexaminod the plaintiff
closely, endenvoring to prove that thn
partnership only existed in tho plaintiff's imagination. Thn plaintiff iu-
dignantlv denied Mr. Bodwnll's suggestions that ho hnd pookoted the cash
he hnd taken in tho bar or that he had
killed a pig nt night, sold tho carcass
to a butcher, and appropriated tho proceeds. Flaintiff admitted thnt tho account had been made up at his own request Mr. Bodwell closed his cross
examination and tho court adjonrnod
until 10:80 this morning.
other officers and men engaged in the
Soudan campaign. Mr. Michael Dav-
itt, Irish nationalist for South Mayo
protested, and challenged a division
wit'i the result that there was i��21
votes in favor ot the motion and 20
against it. Mr. A. J. Balfour, the
Governniont loader remarked that Mr.
Davit* attended tho house: "As an
aTOWed enemy of our country. " Adding that he understood a British reverse would not break his heart.
DETAILS OE  MOYIE   ACCIDENT.
Full Particulars of the Death of Stow-
art and Rodman.
Moyio, Juno 5.��� James Stewart,
better known as "Seotty," and Martin
Redman, two laborers working ou tho
Crow's Nest Railway, were run over
and killed at this place about 12:30
o'clock yesterday morning by an east-
bound freight train. Tbe bodies were
found about half an hour after the
train passed by J. E. Hill, a fireman,
and N. S. Grant and A. W. Richard
son, brakoman.on the gravel train now
in operation  on tbis   part of the road
The first body found���that of Redman���was lying on tho track close to
tho Queen's avenue crossing, while that
of Stewart was found about 80 yards
south. Both bodies were lying in almost tho same position���in tho center
of tho track with their heads out over
the rail next to the town. Redman's
head was mashed to a jellv, a"d pieces
of tho skull and portions of the bruin
were scattered for several feet around.
Tho train passed over Stewart's
shoulder and neck, almost severing
tho bead from the body.
Tho bodies were picked up and removed to a log shaok close by and
thu (Jold Commissioner Armstrong of
Fort Steele was notified. He iu
turn notified Coroner Moffat at Cranbrook. Moffat arrived here this morning, but deemed an inquest unnecessary, and ordered   the   bodies   buried.
Stewart and Redman W6re around
town Saturday evening and had beon
drinking quite hnavily. It is presum
ed they started for the boarding car at
the foot of the lake about midnight.
fell asleep on tho track and were run
over. There is littlo suspicion of foul
ploy, although Redman was seen
with between $25 and $80 a short time
before he met his death, while he did
not have a cent when picked up on
the track. Twenty-five cents was the
extent of the contents of '"Scotty's"
pockets.
James Stewart had heeu working on
the Crow's Nest road for nearly two
vonrs. His parents live in Dnndee,
Scotland. Little is known of Redman
bore, further than that ho has been
working near here for too past two
months. Both men were about 24 years
of age.

of tho government to take greater precautions to prevent the Autneil dem

ter, who told him that be expeoted
an agreement would be put through the
committee at midnight. He was not
awaro of what took place until ho returned tbis morning. He thought after what Mr. Blair had said thai the
information asked for not being in
possession of the Minister or of the Intercolonial there should bo no delay
in settling matters,
Sir Wilfrid   Laurier   said   that   iho  ~   ,   .  ,   ,T _   (
leader of the opposition had agreed to britisn JNewspapors Opinions

hour's consideration and he proposed
that the oommittee wonld take  recess
until 8 o'clock. Mr. Olarke Wallace
demanded more Information. Bir
Charles Tuppoi sat on him unmercifully nnd stood by tlio arrangement
with the tirst minister; The oommittee then took reoess until 8 o'clock.
Ottawa, Ont., June 8.���The appear
auce of the House of Commons this
morning recalled days when the franchise bill was under discussion in 1885
or still later when tbe late Government tried to force through remedial
bills in its dying days. On both these
occasions the opposition were fighting
two important questions which were
known to be at variance with good
Government and popular will,
The Franchise Act of 1885, notwithstanding that it was greatly improved
by that long sitting has since beon
repealed. The remedial bill was a
death blow to these who introduced it.
The all night a sitting on tbis occasion
is a very different ono. It took place
in ostensibly discussing a legal instrument which contains nearly a hundred
clauses of leasing of that purtion of
the Grand Trunk to give the Dnmi-
niond county road an entrance to
Montreal. It has been days under discussion and the debate is now on the
tnird clause. No objection has been
t-iken to the principle of tho proposition and the cost has not been seriously
attacked.
No attempt is made to disguiso the
fact tbat the Opposition is pursuing a
policy of obstruction, imagining tbat in
this way the Government will not go
on with the Redistribution Bill. When
discussion started on the third clause
of the agreement last night there had
been a whole days discussion previously given to it. At 2 o'clock this
morning, an all night session was apparent. Messrs. Blair, Fielding, Sif-
ton and Mulock remainod all night
Mr Clarke Wallace did heavy work
for theOppositiou.
Mr. Fostor left at 4 o'clock. Dr.
Montague held the floor alt night and
was sound asleep in his seat when Sir
Hihbert Tupper returned this morning,
Sir Charles Tupper went home early
and did not return until 11:80 today.
All talking waB of course ou the opposition side and there was very little reference to what was before the   chair.
Mr. McDougall, P. E. I., was talking in the early hours of tbe morning
when some ono dropped a remark iu
French: "Mr. Frenohy," retortod
Mr. MoDougall in his rich Gaelic
voioe: "You hotter closo up at once.
If I get my Sootoh up I will keep yon
here all day." About 6 o'clock Mr.
Marcotto made a speoch in French.
Among tbe Bpeakers this forenoon were
Mr. Montague, Sir Hibbort Tupper
and MesprB. Sproule and Davin.
At noon Mr. Davin had tbe floor.
At 10 o'olouk Sir Wilfrid Laurier relieved Mr. Blair,along with tho Premier camo Mr. Siftou. A little latter
Mr. Patterson arrived. Mr. Blake was
only away for an hour or so when he
returned, between 11 and 12 o'clock,
Mr. Davin sat down and at 12 :15 Mr.
Mills, of Annapolis followed. Ho asked the opposition to stand by their
guns. The burden of the speakers was
for more information.
Mr. Mills could not voto intelligently he said, without more information. Shortly after 1 o'clock this afternoon the Premier walked over to
the leader of the opposition aud im
mediately Mr. Gillies, who was
killing time for the opposition,brought
his remarks to a close Mr. Blair then
said he had obtained from the Grand
Trunk authorities by wire somo information which had been asked for and
which was not in possession of the Intercolonial at Moncton. The statement
showed that tho Intercolonial wheelage
per centage of the Grand Trunk wbb
27.7 per nent., that tho per centagn of
maintenace and repairs was 28.4 and
the percentage of operating stations
and salaries was 3.91, tho two latter
combined making a per centage of a
little over 24. Sir Charles said that
he   had  a conversation with Mr. Fob-
St. Johns, Jinio 8.��� The Newfoundland government will decline to recognize the French rlaiin for Indemnity
for the burning of the lobster factory
on the ground that no direct evidence
is forthcoming as to how, when, or
by whom the factory was destroyed.although Graham Taylor now under arrest at Bonn Bay on ohnrge of burning the factory, boasts that lie did it.
There is really no evidence apart from
this statement to oonneot him with
tho case.
PREPARING FOR HIE BIG FIGHT
Both    Sides    Confident    of    Success
Today.
New York, Juno 8. ���Everything is
in readiness for the big light tomorrow
night between Bob Fitzslmmons and
Jim Jefferies, and with the possiblo
exception of police interference or an
unlooked for accident to either one of
tho principals, the bout will take
place as sohedolcd in the aronu of the
Coney Island Sporting Club.
The statements emanating from police headquarters to the effect that
Chief of Police Devery intends to stop
tho bout in case hard blows aro exchanged or a knock down occurs,
while taken seriously by a large number of sportsmeut is not treated with
any amount of apprehension by those
most interested. The pugilists aro too
much engrossed in their preparations
lo tako any stock in sturirs of interference, and Messrs. Brady and Julian
seem to be confident there will be no
interference on the part of the authorities, Fitzslmmons is still a prime favorite in tho betting, but there is
plenty of Jefferies money in sight.
and while no large wagers havo as yet
been recorded, there is no doubt that
with growing confidence in tho ability of tho promoters to pull off the
mill tho betting will assume largo proportions by tomorrow.
Carpenters were at work in fio big
lull house hy tho ^Ksnln all day and
also tonight and every detail in arranging for the comfortable seating of tho
expected throng has been closely attended to by the management.
Everything was practically ut a
standstill today at the training ipuir
ters of both pugilists. Both men did
very littlo work. Jefferies punched
the bag for a few misntes and after a
brief practice with the   medicine ball,
kipped the rope a couple of hundred
times.
Quito a number of visitors called on
tbo California^ and wished him sue
cess during the day Jefferies   received
a number of telegrams from different
parts of the United States extending
congratulations as well as encouraging the big boilerniaker with hopes
for success in the fight, George Siler
who will referee the contest was
among the visitors at tho Jefferies cot-
tago today,Mr. Siler said his visit was
simply a social ono but in conversation with Jefferies and trainer Billy
Delanoy, be said that Fitzslmmons
bad agreed to a clean break. Delaney
olaimed that a clean break in ans a
gnat ileal to Fitzslmmons, and showed
thnt Boli is afraid of Jeffries drawing
machinery.
Some of tho experts of tho Loch Arbor Cottage claim that Bob will endeavor to mako it a long drawn out battle. Jefferies with his trainer and
snarring partners will leave shortly af-
lor 9 o'clock tomorrow morning for
Coney Island.
It is understood a conference will
take place between Brady, Julian and
two principals and Referee Slier sonin-
timo iu thn afternoon when tho
rules governing the contest will bo
discussed. Jefferies was in best of
humor tonight before retiring. Ho
seemed in good spirits showing no nervousness whatever and oonveried freely
with those around him m reference to
tlio possible outcome of the contest.
Every one of the Jefferies party, including the big fellow himself, seem
confident of the Culifurnluus victory
and none of them look for the battle
to last over 10 rounds.
SLIGHT RIOTS IN PARIS.
Paris, June 8.���Slight riots occurred
this evening between revisionists and
anti-revisionists, after a meeting addressed by M. Francis do Pressenso of
the Tumps, in the Oliohy district of
Paris. There were several tights between rioters and th i police who
charged the populace. Finally tho revisionists made a move toward the residence of M. Zola wilh tbe object of
demonstrating but thu police interferr-
ed. Several revolver shots were fired
during the disturbance aud twenty
persons were placed   under  arrest.

A WARLIKE ATTITUDE
"���Equal Eigbts for All Englishmen in tho
Transvaal "--Feasibility   of War
Seriously   Discussed,
London, Juno 8.���The Daily Mail
says it learns that it was President
Kruger himself who suggested the conference, and it cluiniB to have reliable
authority for declaring that Sir Alfred Milner. the British High Com��
missioner has his back to the wall, aud
is supported to the utmost by the cabinet. Commenting editorially on tho
situation, tbo Dailv Mail  says:
"If wo know our Kruger aright he
will buck down if not why?"
The Daily Chronicle deprecates Mr.
Chamberlain's warlike attitude, but
does not douy the gravity of the situation. It seriously counsels tho Boers
to grant reasonable reforms as the
only means of preserving their independence against the plots of the Stock
Exchange and the violence of Downing
Street.
Tho Standard, which reminds the
Transvaal that its iudepoudonce is not
absolute but is contingent on a faithful oxecution of the agreement stipulating equal lights for all white inhabitants says "We now demand that all
Englishmen resident in the Transvaal
shall be treated with justioe aud President Kruger may rest assured that
the whole country will support the
government in any measures, required
in make this demand effective. Let
Mr. Kruger grant the Uitlanders full
citizenship and tho whole quostion is
ended. At present be only offers a
nolo of hand for a ridiculous sum pay-
iblo many years bonce, in return for
our immediate abandonment of all
Ihe legal rights wo now possess for the
payment of debts long  overdue."
Loudon June 9.���The morning
papers are beginning to talk quite
seriously of the possibility of war in
South Aftnca. Mr. Chamborlain in
his speech in tho House of Commons
yesterday announced that his reply to
tbe petition of the Uitlanders which
had been hold bark pending tbe result
of the conference at Bloemfontein
would now be presented to tbe Transvaal, This reply is somi-offioially described as "explicit bnt conciliatory."
But it is believed to be in the nature
of a practical ultimatum. Tbe resources of diplomacy are regarded as
exhausted with hte failure of the conference. Nothing is left, it is felt,
but u recourse to force.

not ine.iii   war,   says  the   cable, it is
generally thought that  there   will   be
military   preparations.    Should  it  go
as far as   military  preparations,   war
will not be far off.    Tbe Boers   are an
obstinate people, and it would be very
muoh like them to refuse to be intimidated by a display of military   power.
Tbe situation at tbe   present  moment
is more critical than it hns been at any
time thesn   three   years.   The reasonable ooncessionB whioh were  promised
the British residents   of the Transvaal
have not yet been granted.   By speech
es and fair promises  President Kruger
has endeavored  to   allay    discontent,
but beyond tnese he oanuot be induced
to go.    He holds out hope of   reforms,
but   the   reforms    never  materialise.
Impatient   at   these  disappointments,
21,000 British subjeots   petitioned  her
Majesty a few   months   ago, direoting
attention to   the   grievances to  which
they were being subjeoted by reason of
their residence in President   Eruger's
Republic It was a remonstrance which
the  British  Government   could   not
ignore, and  after   tbe  usual negotiations a conference  was   arranged   between Sir Alfred Milner and the  Boer |
President, to be held at the oapital of
the Orange  Free State.   Great hopes
were entertained of this conference np
until the last moment. It was thought
tbat the representations leading  to it
were somewhat  of   the nature  of  an
ultimatum,     and   from    declarations
made at various times   it was believed
that    President Kruger was  at  last
prepared to take definite action towards
redressing the wrongs of  the Uitlanders.   But  word comes that the conference has   broken  up without   results;
there is muoh disappointment in London, and military  preparations are already spoken of.
It is perhaps too noon to conolude
that the resources of diplomaoy are
exhausted. Great Britain would be reluctant to engage in war, and if the
reasonable demands of the UitlanderB
can be secured without resort to that
extreme course we may be sure tbat
diplomaoy will again be invoked.
But the lesson of the past three years
teaches that it is in vain to appeal to
the Boer President with the gentle
means of diplomaoy, and it may be
that tbe military preparations of which
the cable speaks are actually in con
temptation. Should they be, there
will be little sympathy felt or expressed anywhere for the Boers. They are
so distinctly in the wrong that the
general desire will be to see them punished, according to their deserts. As
administered today, the Government
of the South African Republic is a reproach to civilization. President
Kruger is an enemy to enlightened progress ; be bars the way to the successful development and advancement of
industrial enterprise. Suoh prosperity
as the Repnblio enjoys is due to the
Uitlanders, who possess nearly all the
wealth of the country, nearly all of its
intelligence, and who contribute
nearly all the revenue. This is the
olass whom the Government oppresses
with wrongs that have become intolerable. They are denied the right to
educate their children aooording to
their own wishes; the municipal
government of Johannesburg praoti-
oally ignores them ; under the Alien's
Expulsion law anyone of them is liable
at any time to be driven out of the
oountry without trial. There is a Press
law which gives the President arbitrary powers over tbe newspapers.
Th��y are denied the franchise. The
courts are made subservient to the Executive. Jurors and police are invariably
drafted from tbe natives. Exorbitant
mining taxes are imposed, and miners
are tbe viotims of an iniquitous dynamite monopoly. There is also a war
tax on land owned by foreigners,
yielding at present two millions, and
liable to be levied as often as the Presidents thinks fit. These are intolerable conditions, against whioh 31,000
British Uitlanders have lemonstrated,
and which the British Government
can no longer ignore. It is perhaps
just as well the Bloemfontein conference oaine to uanght, for failure may
hasten a reokoning which is sorely
needed.
Somewhere about the 35th inst. certain men and women representing the
Western Canada Press Association will
arrive iu Nelson on the return journey
of an excursion  that  starts from Winnipeg  next   Tuesday.    There  will   be
fifty or sixty in the party.    It is prob-
alby not necessary that the Oity should
make nny  arrangements for a  formal
reception  and eutortainment, as   thoy
belong  to  a  class that  can look after
themselves; but it is well to know they
are  coming, if only  as  a  warning to
look up   tho   spoons.    They   come   in
from   Spokane, and on   the  following
day will piobably   continuo their journey    eastward,   going  out   over   the
Crow's Nest.    A larger   and more important Press party   will   arrive  some
time in August.

MR. JOHNSON'S OFFER.
To the Editor of The Miner:
Sir:���The remarks made by you in
reference to my offer to do the City
scavengering has opened my eyes to
the faot that there must be some misunderstanding, I therefore beg you to
publish this letter.
My offer to olean away the garbage
from the houses for a sum of f!J (three
dollars) per house a month, was intended to apply to those houses that
had no flush closets running into the
main sewer, further the price quoted
was such as to embrace two clearances
I a week. Under the present system it
| is indefinite when the olearings take
place.
The flush system is all very well in
its way, but it will nevertheless be
found necessary to have either a dry
oloset or a bin wherein to deposit the
offals, etc, from the house. In no
cities have they any other way of dealing with this than the oue proposad by
me.
Referring to tbe price���I should be
quite agreeable to do the work at
about half the figure now asked from
the Connoil providing that the Oiiv
erected and maintained the destructor
whiob in itself is a very heavy item.
As to making the clearing compulsory this, it must be apparent, is a necessity. As no donbt ninny a householder would not care one bit
about the health of his neighhors if
be oonld save the dollars. This rule
is followed in every town why then
should it be objeoted to by the inhabitants of Nelson. When once an epi-
demio commences neither doctors nor
medicines will avail during the hot
weather.
Even providing   bnrges  and  taking
the stuff- down the river far away from
town would be  better   than   the   sys
tem now in  vogue   and   this could be
done at a moderate expense.
The foregoing would have been
laid before the Council had I had an
opportuntiy ot bo doing bnt mv otter
being ordered to be filed there was
notbing more to be said.

and the late hour at which the light

Progress   of tho Building   on   the Columbia & Western Railway.
Hundreds of men aro employed ou
the construction of tho Columbia &
Western railway, (O. P. H. )from Bob-
son to Midway. It in expooted that
the tracklayers will reach Grand
Forks early in July. The charter doea
not permit tho C. P. R. to go within
in one hundred yards of the internn-
tionul boundnry line, therefore, to
reach tho Boundnry district it is ne-
oessary to cross mountains, bore tunnels nud build a rond bed that costs for
ninny miles of the distance, over $82,-
000 per mile. From Kobson, which is
au elevation of 1,400 foot, the road
climbs to McBae creek summit at an
elevation of 4,000 feet. Then it comes
dowu to Cascade ut 1,600 feet with
another climb to an elevation of 3,100
feot over Eholt summit, and down
again to Midway whioh is at au elevation of 1,1100 feet. Near Niagara a
tunuel 11,000 feot long has beon bored
through a mountain, O. P. R. engi-
neera claim tbat they could have
effected a saving of two million dol-
lais if they had boeu permitted to follow tho water grade of the Kettle river, which in its serpentine course
crosses the Bouudary Hue several
times.

OF V
5 MINES <
\        KOOTENAY \
****%**%********+
Matters aro lookiuR well with tbe
Stemwinder mine, at Vairview, in
the Boundary, un recent development
has disclosed enormous bodies of ore
or a fair milling quality, in faot, a recent expert confidently asserted that
there is at present in the mine a uu indent amounnt of ore to keep a 4G-
stamp mill running for at ieast three
years.
The main body of ore runs from
seven to 20 feet in width and a conservative estimate places this ore as
running $7.50 a ton in all values,
and if reports are to be relied upon,
the company is considering the advisability of establishing a 40-stamp
mill upon the property at once. It is
understood the manager of tbe oompany, Mr Russell, is now in the east
making arrangements for the procuring of the mill. A new manager is in
charge at the mine nnd under him
about 12 men are kept constantly at
work either sinking, drifting, or running crosscut tunnels. For this work
throe stem drills are usually employed. With a 40-Btamp mill the ore
should clear from $8 to $3.50 ton net
profit. If this oan be done tbe Stem -
winder will be one of the foremost
mines of Southern Yale.

O. Li. Knox, manager ot the Tracy
Oreek Mining Oompany, has received
a letter from J. H. Oonklin, the superintendent of the company's group of
chums in the Traoy Oreek oamp of
East Kootenay. The company owns
the John L, J. H. 0. and Hartwell
claims, and Mr. Oonklin recently
started work on the John L. Following is a portion of his letter, written
May 29:
"Gutting in what we called our
hanging wall of slate and talc to
chamber out for tbe windlass, I found
another body of ore, better and probably richer than anything yet.
"I have run 17 feet of tunnel in
five days, but the vein runs along the
side of the hill and by running the tunnel 60 feet we would not be under
ground more than 20 feet, so I have
started a shaft in the tunnsl, and it
was in preparing to sink there tbat
this additional ore body was opened,
The ore showing in the tunnel and
chamber is so soft that it comes out
like sand. There are some fine copper
values in it carried in carbonates and
bromide. The mine looks extraordi
narily well for the amount of work
done on it. I expect to get some good
samples out of tbe shaft this week, but
will have to get doopor in order to get
pieoes tbat will hold together.
"The Hartwell olaim is still covered
with snow.    All development is being
done upon the John L.���J. H. OONKLIN. ' '���Spokesman Review.
*   *   *
The Exohequer people aie jubilant
over a new discovery whioh has just
been made at the west end of the mine.
Three assays of tbe ore found there,
go $802, $82, and $209. They are now
np 15 feet to the upraise and expect to
make conneotlcn witb the bottom of
the shaft in about 20 days. The oompany will then be in a position to ship
ore.

Victoria, June 8.���The smelter of
the Vananda Gold and Copper Company at Vananda Oity, Texada Island
will be completed and "blown in"
within the month, and the company
will then commence smelting its own
ores^large quantities of whioh are now
being roasted. There is now about
six months supply in sight, while five
drirrs, three on the Copper Queen and
two on Cornell mines are all wcrking
on ore. Tbeie is 12 feet of the highest
grade ore ever found on the property
in the bottom of the Cornell shaft.

"Where, however, the tacts disclose
that a corporation has failed iu tbo (lis
charge of it corporate use by uniting
with others in carrying out an agreement, the performance of which is
detrimental or injurious to the public, it thereby may bo said to offend
against the law of its creation and
consequently to forfeit its rights to its
franchises.
The authorities affirm that if the
aot complained of, by its results will
rostruot or stifle competition the law

FUNERAL OF   BISHOP   DURIEU.
New Wostrainstor, June 5.���The impressive funerol services over the re-
mnius of the late pioneer Roman
Catholic Bishop of this city, on
Thursday morning last, were held at
the Indian Church and in St. Peter's
Oatherdral, this morning, and, about
1 o'clock, the mournful cortege, with
three Indian bunds, playing funeral
airs, proceeded down Columbia
street, to the depot, where speoial train
was taken, leaving at 1:30 for Mission, where further services were held
jad the interment took place this afternoon.
As announced Saturday, the romaius
of the dead Bishop lay in state all day
yesterday, iu the Imlinii church, ot the
corner of Blackwood and Agues streets,
whore they weie visited by citizens
of all denominations. It was remarked by some who had seen the late Cardinal Manning as he lay in state in
London, that the late Bishop Durieu
presented an appearance of greater
age, though but sixty-nine years of
age, at bis doath���while the late
Cardinal was over eighty���due doubtless to the missionary life of hardship
whioh the late Bishop had led among
the Indians. The funeral servioes
began this morning at 8 o'olook, with
Requiem High Muss in the Indian
Church, which was sung by Father
Bunoz, Indians composing   the   choir.

AN
IMPORTANT      DECISION.
Supremo  Oourt  of    Indiana Decides
Against Trnsts.
Chicago, June 8.���The Indiana supreme court holds that a publio corporation which entered into a combination with other corporations to
destroy* competition aad thereby increase tbe price at which an article
was sold to the inhabitants of tbe
state, becomes liable to a forfeiture
of its oorporate franchise. The decision is in the oase of the state on the
relation of a prosecuting attorney
against the Portland Natural Gut and
Oil Oompany. Judge Jordan of the
supreme oourt, who wrote the decision
says in part:
"When the state seeks to destroy
the life of an inooporated body it is
expeoted to show some grave misconduct, some aot at least by which it
has offended tbe law of its creation or
omething material whioh tends to
���produce injury to the publio and not
merely that whioh affects only private
