from Japan with full loads of Japimeie
immigrants and nm throng at the
quarantine stations is growing to
enormous proportions,
The steamer 7oriliime Main arrived

County Court was held hero yesterday. Judge Spmks made uu important
decision respecting the light of the
free miner to use the timber on his
claim. There were half a dozen cases
in whioh this right wns in one way or
another involved, hut only one was
heard, thut of John Mulligan vs.
Louis Blue, Adolph Fisher, et nl. ill
which the defendants were sued for
damages for cutting and carrying
away timber and trespass!ug on the
plaintiff's mineral claim.
The evidence went to show that the
defendants, who nre sawmill men, had
gone uu In the plaintiff's claim, and
bnd cut a certain iinraher of trees
which were traced to tbe mill. The
point of law involved was, whether
the owner of the mineral claim could,
under the act prevent mill men from
entering, cutting and carrying away
timber, No evidence was offered in
In half of the defence, the plaintiff's
solicitors applying for a nnn suit. His
Honor gave the following written
judgment i
"The miner owner is entitled to the
timber ou bis claim for mining purposes. Anyone who takes timber from
his claim interferes with thnt right
and commits a trespass. The defendants have cut nnd carried awav from
the plaintiff's claim, the extent ol tbe
quantity the plaintiff oannot say. but
be claims over 111 trees.and the defendant does not contradict thnt  claim."
His honor gave judgment for iS-lii and
cnstH. He expressed the opinion, also,
that the owner of the mineral claim
had no right to sell or dispose of the
timber, or to use it for any other than
mining ptirooses. Thi-i is a very important decision ond ns it will he appeal, d from, the result will he locked
forward to with general Interest
throughout the Province.   The interest
of every claim holder is affected. The
other cases will stand over pending
the result of the appeal.
