Winnipeg, July 11,���Though there'
is nothing startling or new in the C.
1'. It. strike sitnaton t>e men here
are hecomug more confident every day
that they will succeed in defeating the
company. Their contention is, so far
as they will say,that the coinpany cannot hold out very much longer with
the track in the nlleRec\bad state that
it is at present. The statement that
a number of strikers aro returning to
work in the east, the men maintain,
goes for nothing as it Is in the west
where the train service is suffering
much for want of men to look after
lines. Trains both east and west aie
late every day and instead of making
up time they are, according to the
men's statements, getting later. The
company, on the other hand, treat the
strike as practically over and say that
it has collapsed both in the east and
west. The company'��� officials laugh
at the mens' statement that the road
is being crippled for want of men and
say that it is simply tho heavy rains
of the last few weeks that have prevented them from running on fast
time. They also state that every day
ra"ie men are returning to work on
every branch.
Vancouver, B.C., July 11.���Traders
arriving from the north state that
.''usiness is very much overdone in
Canadian Alaska owing to the large
number of scows sent in with hay,
oats and provisions. Hay iB at preB-
ent selling in Daw son for much less
than it costs to lay it down in the
Klondike capital. This also applies
to oats and ham. A great many of
those who have shipped large quantities of goods to Dawson forgot that
the market was limited and others
would do the same as they were doing
and in consequence, in place of making a fortune as they hoped to, they
lost heavily on the venture.
The British' Columbia business is
Still repoited in very bad shape. The
only demand for lumber is from the
Western States and British Coulmbia
is unable to successfully reach these
markets. In the meantime the law
against exporting cedar logs from
British Columbia into the United
States has become for the time being
a dead letter, much to the disgust of
local mill men, for they cannot, get
cedar logs from the logger except by
paying more than they can afford,
owing to the demand for them in the
United States. The Puget Sound
firms are now paying to the loggers
for the entire log, including rough
sections, topa of the trees and all
88.25 net. This is more than they
ever got befoie and would ever get
in the future from the local mill men.
It is quite possible that the law prohibiting the importation of logs will
be repealed as the statement of the
loggers that the only men benefitted
by such a law are the flaw mill men
and Bhiugle men, it is believed by the
people at large and pressure will be
brought to bear on the Government
to p'a.e a larger royalty on cedar logs
and allow them to be sent out of the
Province to the best available market
���the Puget Sound mills.

intervals but hitting no one. By a
ruse of the police six strikers were
captured intimidating Japs with revolvers. Tho police went out in a
decoy hoat concealed in the bottom of
the boat. When the strikers jumped
on board the boat with ievolvers and
guns thc police rose up like Ilawk-
shaws and ordered them to throw up
their arms. Tho entire boarding party
were handcuffed and jailed. The
striking patrols, however, claim to
have made a big haul of Japs during
the night. They were marooned on

secret, after throwing their nets and
belongings overboard and setting
their beats adrift. One boat haa been
found adrift with two IioIcb in the
bottom, A big run of Balmon is reported heading for the Fraser.

Mr. James Wllks Will Not Discuss It���
The Cause of the Strike.
Mr. James Wilks, president of the
Nelson Miners' Union, was Been by a
Miner reporter last evening, who inquired as to the strike situation at
Rossland but he was not in a talking
mood. In reply to an Inquiry as to
the number of men who were out he
claimed that he was not in a position
to state beyond the tact that the whole
of the miners at the Le Roi are out
and only two men are_acting as watch
men on the outside of the mine. Mr.
Wilks will leave for the scene of the
strife today and has in the meantime
nothing further to say on the matter
until his return.
The Kossland correspondent of thc
Spokesman-Review has the following
in yesterday's issue:
The statement iB made that many
members �� of the organization ^and
non-union members will refuse lo go
on strike and the mines have guaranteed to protect all such.
The Centre Star and War Eagle, together with othei working mines such
as the Iron Mask, 1. X. L., Home-
stake, and Velvet are not affected as
yet. The union men say their case is
still under advisement.
The cause of the strike is given out
by the uuion as arising from the
muckers' demand for increase from
82.50 to 83 per day for wages. Another
cause is sympathy for the Northport
strikers. The latter is apparently the
most potent factor, as the only mines
to be affected at once are the Ross-
land-Great Western properties, which
are owned by the Baine corporation
that opsratcs* theJNotthport Bmelter.
The statement is made that tbe vote
ou thc 4th inBt., was almost unanimous in favor of the strike.
The meeting last night was largely
attended, the session being held in a
big hall used for public affairs, the
lodge room failing to accommodate
the crowd. Crowds surrounded the
building nwalting tho decision. The
doors were carefully guarded, and no
enthusiasm could be detected from
Considerable excitement prevailed
on the streets of the city last night.
Everyone was anxious to know the result of thc deliberations and many
waited up to know tho outcome. The
meeting closed at 11 o'clock and within a short time the facts were generally known. It was not expected thnt
the strike would be decided on so
soon as the statement was made during the day that the decision of the
ballot would not be announced until
tho 10th instant, when the miners'
union   is   to have   a big piinie   here.

In Robltallle vs. the Nelson
Tram Co. an Interesting Decision Given.
Another decision has been received
on the appeal cases recently heard at
Victoria, lu the suit of the Fawcett
vs. C. P. R. The appeal was dismissed with coHts, in which the plaintiff
was applying for a new trial. It is
understood that the matter will be
further appealed^to the Supreme Court
of Canada. Charles Wilson, K. C,
and R. S. Lennie, appeared for the
appellant and E. P. Davie for the respondent.
The full text of magistrate Crease's
decision in the charge again..t Regis
Robitaillie, of unlawfully detaining
certain floats which were found by
defendant on the lake, was rendered
yesterday and is as follows:
"The question of salvage contended
for by Mr, Talyor does not really enter into the consideration of this
case. Being floats or in the words of
witnesses defining them singly, "a
raft" or "boat-landing" and "a construction to be used for a definite purpose, " and therefore a chattel, the
finder has at common law no lien upon It for a recompense in respect of
his trouble in securing it, and in taking caro of it for the owner, but he is
entitled to be paid any reasonable expenses incurred in respect of the thing
"The ownor of a boat which iB found
adrift   on   the   tide     water,   and   is
brought  to Bhore is liable for the necessary expenses of   keeping   and   repairing the hoat while it remained in
the possession o�� the finder.    The law
implies   in such a case   a  promise by
the owner  that upon taking   it from
the possession of the   person who has
found it adrift he will pay for the necessary expenses  of   the preservation
(see Treracar on conditional sales and
chattel lienB,   p 142, 143).    The floats
in question are alleged   to have been
found adrift in the West Arm of Kootenay Lake, by the accused  and that
he refuses to   deliver them up to  the
proper owner.    No evidence has  been
offe.ed  for the defence,   nnd   no  expenses have  been shown to have been
incurred by the accused,   the tinder, 1
cannot dnd that any lien exists.   One
would have arisen had   there  been  a
reward  offered   by   the  owners,   the
NelBOn Electric   Tramway   Company,
Limited.    I   do  consider   the   85,   a
counter offer made by Mr. Mason, the
company's manager to  the accused,
when the latter claimed 825, for   saving the float, a  rewaul in this  case.
The prosecution ia   under sub-section
(b) section 338 Criminal   Code,   1802:
'Every one is guilty of an   indictable
offence and Dable to threo   years  Imprisonment who   refuses to deliver up
to the proper owner thereof or to the
person in   charge   thereof  on   behalf
of such owner, or authorized by   such
owner to receive  thc  same any  such
timber,  mast, spar, sawlog or other
description  of   lutnoei.'   The history
and object of this section in  a   meas
ure are to be found   in the  Uonse of
Commons debates, 18U2. 'Very often on
the  lakes  the  rafts break   up,   and
there is a class  of men who pilfer the
logs and hide them in   the   woods  or
take  them   to   the saw mills.   These
logs   are  vetv   valuable.    A mast   is
worth   8100, or more, and   it is   very
difficult to guard   these pieces of timber.'   Again, 'along the Ottawa river
were a number of small  mills  whose
ownerB made it a bnsinesB to pick   up
a sufficient number of   logs  to supply
their mills, and if the} were found in
their booms,they set up  tlie  pretence
that they had floated in there aud had
come to their   possession  innocently.
This had become Buch a nuisance, and
prevailed to such au extent that there
seemeil tu be no way of remedying thc
evil other than   to  make   the  possession of these logs  punishable in   thia
"Do these floats or boat-landings or
constructions, consisting of s.wn trolley poles bound by several cross
pieces, fastened, and flooied with
lumber, come within the list of   tim
ber, mast, spar, saw log or other' description of lumber'.1 I think the an-
i swor must be clearly in the negative,
and especially so where the statute to
be "constmed is a penal one. The
floats are the result of building and
construction. Their parts have been
made a definite substantive whole for
a specific purpose, and it might as
well be claimed tout a Boating wharf
tr a shack adrift could be brought
within the category named, which
would be manifestly absurd. The
remedy whicli should havo been invoked is the jlvil process of replevin.
I therefore dismiss tho charge but
without costs.''

prosecution and S. S. Taylor for the

Forin, for the costs in the case on the
ground that the plaintiffs while
winning the case, diil not prove the
statements mnde in their plaint. The
application was refused. Application
was also made to stay proceedings in

application was refused on the ground
that by the statute II days stay of

Create. It is a chicken scrap, not

Booth of Fairview, who had tho chickens, and Mrs. Emma Gaskell, who is
charged with the assassination of
the feathered "reatures. It is another
case of the upsetting of neighborly
relationship through chickens being
allowed to run at large. The owner
of the birds had heen warned to keep
her feathered pets at home, hut the
proprietoress either disregarded the
injunction or else the chickens be
came unruly and refused to obey the
admonitions of their guardians. Subsequently there was a quantity of
poisoned food found in the vicinity,
and about the same time the chickens
began to feel sick and notwithstanding the best of medical aid that e.nld
be procured they went up the Hume.
A post mortem examination was held
on the bodies of the deceased, and it
was found that they_had died of poisoning supposed to have heen taken
from eating the poisoned food which
was found lying around the neighbor's premises The lady who owned
the chickens attepmteu.to prove that
the other lady in the scrap had been
the instrument of torture to her game,
but the charge was not. sufficiently

An interesting lawsuit is pending,
of an entiiely local character, which
is the result of the decision given by
Magistrate Crease in the cafe for salvage claimed by Regis Robltallle,who
is entering an aetion for damages for
malicious prosecution aud false imprisonment against the Nelson Electric Tramway Company, A. V. Mason,
superintendent, and Constable Young,
who made the arrest without a warrant. The case will be tried at the

The new railway line fiom Jennings, Montana, up the vulley of the
Kootenay to that of the Elk, and
thence up as far as Fernie, which
seems to be thc terminus aimed at for
tlie present, will open up a country
rich in both mineral antl tinibei resources, From the international
boundary north to Elko the loute is
through an excellent fanning country
with mineral indicaions, and In
which a good ileal of prospecting for
coal and oil is going on at pretent.
The country is optn and park like,
witli large meadow stretches. There
is a good deal of timber but mostly
teattcrcfi, jack pine being the principal variety, and averaging from two
to three feet in diameter. At Tobacco Plains,on thc border, ure a number
of line ranches, a considerable business in raising horses also being carried on. The principal difficulties of
the route lie near Elko, ���vhere in rising from thc valley of thc Koovenay
to that of the Elk, a number of step-
like terraces are eneounterod. Thcie
will not he much rock work but a
gieat number of cemented gravel
cuts lo be made. Above Elko the lino
will probably run in the opposite
side of the river to the C. I'. R. Tha
vulley of the Elk contracts rapidly
aoovc the Falls, one of the ptettiest
gems of scenery in Hritish Columbia.
Fiom Elko noi lb to Michel the character of the lumber is very different
from that in the rest of the valley,
immense cedars being predominant.
Between Elko and Pernio the grade
will traverse bottom land, closely following the ccurse of the river through
a heavily timbered tract. The mountain bordering are very high aud
rocky,a peculiar circumstance connected with them, especially in the neighborhood of Morrissey, being the number of immense caves near the tops,
the mouths of which can be descried
from the valley, but which are practically beyond reach, llelcw nearly
all of them there are smooth faces of
rock, ranging in height from fifty to
three hundred feet. -
The resources of this section are
many nnd varied, but very little has
been done towards opening them up
as yet, except in the eoal fields. For
seventy miles north of Fernie thc coal
indications are stiong all aiong tbe
east side of the river. Besides this
the timhei is lirst class, the only draw
back being that the Elk is not adapted
for timber driving,being full of shoals
and sharp curves. With a railway on
either side of the stream these difficulties -ill be obviated, and a largo
trade in lumber products will doubtless soon exist there. At Coal creek,
five miles beloiv Fernie the C. P. li.
has one of the largest saw mills In
Forest fires some ten years ago swept
the valley north of Michel where the
C. P. R. branches off up Michel creek
towards the Crow's Nest Pass for
twelve mi'es, the val.cy for that distance being covered mostly with a forest of lire Idled timber. North of
Fording rivet again the green timber
commences, but scattered, gradually
getting thicker till at forty miles
above Michel the timber is as dense bb
at Sparwood, tall and straight and
growing so close together that tbo
sunlight never penterates to the soil.
As before mentioned the present
ternnnus planned for the Crow's
Nest Southern seems to he Fernie, but
as the cbnrtei includes the Elk valley
north to thc main line of the C. P.
It., runnii g nearly all thc way
through a highly fertile comitty, and
one in which there nre indications of
further immense coal deposits (the
whole being included in the Dominion
Coal reset ves) it will probably not
lie. long before the line will be continued. All the way up the valley
the Elk river seems to divide two distinct formations, that on the east side

Once more complaints aro being
lodged at Ottawa that American whalers are busy in pursuit of their vocation in Hudson llay. This is an old
ator.i. When the otlicers of the Government expedition of 1884 returned
from the Day and Strait, they had
copious tales to tell of the operations
of those whalers, and record was
made by way of protest in the official
report of the Commander, The matter at that time was carried a step
farther and was mentioned In l'ailia-
mi'iit. Hut no action was taken as
far as known. In fact, Sir John Macdonald made light of the complnint,
aud said that it was better the Americans should catch the whales than
that they should not be caught at all.
From that time, at varying periods,
we have heard of what has been calleo
the depredations of those New England whalers, those poachers whom
the fenr of the British lion did not
deter from their trespasses in the territorial waters of Canada.
- But just here the difficulty arises;
i' is not any too certain that Hudson
flay and Strait aro Canadian territory,
nor is it on record that the claims to
exclusive jurisdiction has been acknowledged. If the old Hritish -intention of "headland to headland" is
held to be good, then a line drawn
from Cape Chiilleigh to Cape Rest
marks the boundary of liritisli territorial right, across which no foreign
Power can go without permission. If,
hovvever, the theory that openings
of more than six miles make free
waters is to prevail then Hudson Hay
is open to all nations, for the entrance to It in its narrowest part is
about forty-five miles across. But
whatever tho jurisdiction when within may be, it is certain that the ter
ritory sniroiiniling it on all -ides is
Canadian, and bo are ihe numeious
islands with which those waters are
dotted. American whalers may have
the right of entrance into Hudson
Bay, but they have no right to make
one of those Islands their base of
operations or to approach anywhere
within three miles of Canadian territory. This is an established point of
International law, and in accordance
with it the Canadian Parliament has
adopted it as au established regulation of Canadian fisheries If enforced, the Americans would have to
abandon Hudson Hay, for if confined
to the waters beyond the maiine
league limit they would tiud it iuipos
Bible to cany on operations.
It would-be well to have it declared
whether Hudson Hay is un open sea
or of Hritish teirltorlal wateis It is
a portion of the world that hus been
lying off by itself, out of the way.
and no one has troubled his head
much about it. When Mr. Hugh
Sutherland's dream of a Hudson Hay
railway is realised, however, as it
will be in a few years, and when the
commereo of thc gicat Northwest ia
diverted to that route, the question of
jurisdiction will liecome uu important
one. If there should ever lie another
conference of the Joint High Commission, tho Canadian Premier should
raise the question and have it settled. Whatever the Commissioners of
the United States and Great llritain
may determine with regard to the
matter, the other nations will concur

As an illustration ofthe "rubishy"
character of the cables to this country, The Columbian, of New Westminster, refers to the visit of four "inconspicuous Cabinet Ministers from
Ottawa." Mr. Mills and Sir Louis
Davies are not inconspicuous, and at
any rate they are Canadian Ministers,
in London on an official mission of
Imperial irapoit. who for that reason
alone are deserving of more respectful reference lhan the foregoing.
Manitoba fanners are not yet out
of the woods, and their boast that
they will require to import an army
of liftciin thousand laborers to harvest their crop is a little premature.
Indeed, the critical period���or the
one they have been in the habit of regarding as the critijal one���is yet
a month off. When- the grain has
safely passed the milk stage, and is
rapidly becoming hardened, thoy may
settle djwn to count their chickens
���if the twist to the metaphor will be
allowed. It is true tbat frost has
not thc terrors it did have in the
early experiences of Manitoba farming. In those days frozen wheat meant
ruined wheat; the dealers could do
nothing with it, and it waB a total
loss. Not so now. The frost injures,
hut it does not necessarily destroy.
Hut it can knock all the spirit out
of a Manitoba farmer even yet, and
there may come a night in August
that will bring other visions than
those of bar.'est laborers from Ontario and Quebec
Mr. Adams thinkfl there is quite
sufficient ore in the neighborhood to
justify the ereccion of a local smelter,
if that smelter would treat the ores
at a small margin of profit. The
country abounds in copper propositions and is highly and generally
mineralized. Like the Slocan, the
ore is bunch, but there are numberless properties from whioh hundreds
or thousands of tons or ore could be
profitably extracted from these pockets and sent to a smelter. Mr. Adams
is convinced that in this manner quite
sufficient ore could be obtained to
Keep a smelter in full continuous blast
near this city.
He has heard nothing definite of
the Miner-tiiaves sm.ltr, but thinks
the syndicate interested a shrewd
one, and that they probably will be
successful in their undertaking.
The Hritannia itself could supply
sufficient ore to keep a smelter going,
but Mr. Adams had not that propeity
particularly in his mind in cornice
tion with a custom smelter as it
wonld probably have a reduction
works of its own to tieat IU ore.
Mr. Adams has been examining
properties in the adjacent country
since the early spring, but Is not
willing to state in whose interest he is
working, lie says, however, that his
report will be favorable and that he
is strongly of the opinion that if
more development work were done;
some really big mines would be prov
ed up.
The New Denver Ledge, in the following, furnished a text for a long
discourse: "The C. P, K. shuuld have
kopt their B. 0. passenger rate at five
cents a mile, and raised tho wages
of section men to 81.75 a day. A
course of tbis kind would have prevented much loss ard trouble.'' Do
what they will, Ihe railway companies cannot please everybody. If the
passenger rate had been kept up, the
C. P. K. would te earning enough additional to meet the demands of the
trackmen. Hut the great public
howled about the rate of five cents,
and flown it had to co.ne. This hits
the trackmen, who are only a poition
of the great public; the whole Ib
greater and more inllueutial than a
part,    and   the   part   surfers. Corpor-
An injunction was issued a few
days ago by a Kansas Judge, to restrain the striking machinists of tbe
Riverside Iron Works from interfering
with oi intimidating the company's
employeB. The attorney for the
strikers inquired if the strikers
might not talk to the men who were
employed to take their places. The
judge replied: "We will not discuss
the question of what constitutes moral suasion at this time. If I catch
aDy of those men picketing the work-
men who go to or from this plant, I
shall consider it a physical demonstration calculated to intimidate " As
an indication of the growing impatience with lawlessness this may be
of interest to strikers generally.
New Vork, July 11.���The Herald
says Andrew Carnegie,still bas ��50,-
000,000 to give away in public benefactions. Mr. Carnegie himself is
authority for this statement, which
he made recently at Skibo castle to a
member of the New York Chamber of
Commerce committee who is now in
the city, but wishes hla name kept secret. Several members of the New
York Chamber of Commerce delegation which went to England recently
visited Mr. Carnegie at Skibo castle
and with them he discussed his gifts
to the public. He remarked that in
the future he meant to make other
donations, more even than herctofoie
to public institutions.
According to Mr.Carnegie he is still
undecided in what manner to dispose
of his wealth for the public good. He
wishes the public to obtain the best
results from his lnture benefeactions
and for that reason has not yet formulated any philanthropic statements.
Mi. Carnegie admitted that free libraries and other educational institutions would undoubtedly obtain a portion of thc millions in question.in order that the plans he had previously
adopted should be fully developed.
His hearers judged from what he said
that he was considering the advisability of directing his wealth toward
endowing the supporting art galleries
scientific museums and similar institutions.
Man   Talks   of   Riches
the Terminal City.
Mr. W. C, Adams, a mining engineer of the Slocan, who ia down at
Ihe Coast for the purposo of looking
over the copper properties in the vi
ciuity of this city, was seen at the
Badminton hotel, by a representative of Tho Vancouver Province, anil
stated that he was much pleased with
the appearance of the country.
Mr. Adams is one of the promoters
of the Arlington mine, which is one
of the biggest shippers in the Slocan
country and is perhaps with the exception of the l'ayne Itself, one of the
most iin rtant mines in that district. The ere of the Arlington Is
practically a dry ore, and is in great
demand at the Hall Mines smelter lor
fluxing purposes.
Mi. Adams ia of the opinion that a
lead smelter or refinery in the Slocan
would be of lasting benefit to that
country, and is warmly in approval
of the bonus granted by the Dominion   government.    As   to the   site, he
believes it is more or less a matter  of   ��� n.      \, n- ,
