Victoria, Keb. 21,���Beautiful weather prevailed for the opening of th"
house. Tbe attendance was unusually
large, the greatest interest being
excited tn the khaki men. The Rev.
R. Ii. Blyth, a returned eorpnral of
the Royal Canadian artillery, acted as
chaplain. The governor's speech, after referring to thedealh of the Queen
and the accession of the King, continues:
"As a mark of their appreciation of
the valiant service rendered by the
volunteers from British Columbia who
went to South Africa to assist the
empire in the war with the Transvaal
and the Orange Free State, my government will introduce a measure authorizing the conveyance to them of
free grants of land.
"A   measure     will   be

encouragement  of  the  wood pulp Industry.
"I am pleased to know that the
dairy industry continues to develop
in ���*. satisfactory manner,and that new
creameries aie being established. My
minister of agriculture has obtained a
promise of continued co-operation on
tbe part of tbe Dominion in rendering
expert assistance in tbeir construction
and subsequent operation and in giving instruction in the manufacture of
butter and cheese. Recognizing the
importance of encouraging preferential trade iu agricultural and other
natural products, and, In particular,
of promoting the markets for the pro-
dace of farmers in the mining dis-
tnctb.efforts have been made to secure
suoh a reduction of freight rates as
would naturally tend in that direction,
and am pleased to announce that this
will be brought about.
"For the purpose of promoting settlement,my government is considering
tbe advisability of introducing legislation having in view the extension
of small holdings.
"A measure will be introduced with
tbe view of aiding the construction
of a railway from Bound-ury creek
direct to the coast; of a railway tu
tbe northern end of Vancouver Island ;
and of a railway in Canadian territory
from the coast to tbe northern bound -
ary of the province.
"The industries of the province, I
am happy to state, are in a prdsperons
condition. It is to be deplored that
the recent explosion at Comox should
have resulted in such disaster, loss of
Ufa and property and the relatives of

been issned to inquire into the conduct
and general administration of the asylum for tbe insane, the rights of settlers in the E. tit N. railway belt, and
tbe adjustment of mining claims in
thu newly organized Porcupine district. The full reports of the commissioners in each case will be laid
before yon at an early date.
"Provision was made bv you at the
last session for the appointment of a
commission to inquire into the working of the mineral acts and much preliminary information has been obtained by the department of mines in anticipation of the commission being
issued, but it having been announced
that the Dominion government also
Intended issuing a commission with
respect to our mineral resources a
postponement was deemed desirable
in order to ascertain to what extent
those commissions might be able to
oo-operato to the advantage of the
province. Amendments will be introduced to perfect as far as possible the
existing mining laws.

lay before the Domlulon government
the claims of British Columbia to include recognition in the matter of railway development and to arrive at a
settlement of certain matters requiring adjustment between the two governments. Their reports will be laid
before you at an early date.
"The estimates, which have beon
prepared with due regard to economy
and the requirements of the province,
will be submitted   shortly.
"I leave you to your deliberations
and trust that you may by tho blessing of divine providence be instrumental in materially advancing tbe
interests of the province."
Victoria, Feb. 21.���The estimates
are promised in a few days. Turner
presented the public accounts for the
year ending June 30, 1!)00. The receipts are Jl,844,108, expenditures $1,-
(147,41*>. Of the expenditures $110,200
were devoted to the sinikng fund.
I Eberts introduced a bill for the relief of Phoenix, granting the eity increased borrowing power. Peters
moved the adjournment till Monday to

The lieutenant-governor was very
feeble and could scarcely read the
speech. Tbe South African volunteers

Vancouver, Feb. 21.���The tight
between the C. P. R. and the
Crow's Nest Pass Coal company,
in combination with the James
J. IIill and American Refinery
company interests, is now on in
earnest, the management of the
big home corporation having
brought the battle to an issue by
flatly refusing to lift cars from
the mines for Montana or other
American points until the coal
company has fulfilled its promise
to supply the exhausted British
Columbia market.
The C. P. R. has been buying
steam coal in Lethbrldge for
some time at an advanced figure
in order to relieve tne pressure,
but with a renewal of the American contracts by the coal company, the railway people decided to force the issue.
At the time of the strike,some
of the smelters were forced to
close down, and, of course, cut
off tbeir orders for coal and coke
temporarily. The coal company
then made three months' contracts with American plants to
the extent of about 800 tons of
coke a day, and these contracts
have since been renewed, although the blowing In of the
Canadian smelters would absorb
almost all the daily products of
the mine and ovens.
The company is bound by
agreement to sell coal to British
Columbia at certain fixed rates,
a maximum of $2 per ton���but
there is nohting to prevent them
from fixing their own prise on
coal shipped to the United
States and supplying that market first.
These difficulties will be more
or less present until British Columbia has her own refining
plants and can handle her mineral products from the mine to
the refined product without calling on or needing outside assistant. Meanwhile it remains to
be seen bow far the C. P. U.
will be able to enforce its demands that British Columbia
consumers shall.first be supplied
with products of the Crow's
Nest Pass Coal company before
lifting cars for the American

Woodstock, Ont., Feb. 21.���W. Has-
selfleld and   wife   of   Manitou, Man.
were married   yesterday at the   home
of the bride's   father in   East   Zorra,
and starting on their honeymoon, registered at an hotel here yesterday.   As
they had not been seen   when   dinner

How It Goe** In HI. I.oiiIh.
During the present cold and grip
season one hundred and thirty-three

Drug Co. and J, 8. Men-ell Drug Co,
Ask for Five Dollars per Ton
For the Next Three
The only solution to what may now
be termed the lead dlfiiculty that
those who have studied the ""\tter
can foresee is the establlslnn nt
lead refinery in British Columbia to
make us entirely independent of
American railroads and American
smelters. A refinery has long been
talked of as one of the possibilities of
a rather remote future but all agree
that mining in this province will not
assume its proper standing unless
such an industry is started. The large
amount of flouting capital that is required to successfully operate a refinery in addition to the very heavy expenditure required for installing the
plant has been a difficulty that seemed
to stand in the way of the realization
of the hopes of those whose Interests are bound up In the prosperity
of the province. Government aid has
been looked upon as the only possible
solution and efforts are now being
made to impress upon the authorities
at Ottawa the necessity of granting it.
The Kootenaian is in a position to
state that a definite proposition is
now before the Dominion government
by the acceptance of which a refinery
will be secured for Canada and erected in the Kootenays. Influential capitalists have agreed to install a plant
and operate it if the government will
grant a bonus of five dollars per ton
on lead manufactured by the refinery
during the first three years of its
This is a large bonus but it Is for a
short time only and scarcely any price
is too large to pay for the placing of
tbe refining industry in British Columbia on a permanent footing.
Every board of trade and similar body
in the country should strongly endorse
the proposition and bring all possible
pressure to bear in urging the government to accept it. The importance of
securing a refinery can scarcely be
over-estimated as it would give the
country a jump forward that will be
realized in no other manner. It
would add greatly to the price of
ore, enabling many properties that
aie not rich enough to make shipping
to the states and paying duty profitable
and to open up and work on a large
scale. Hut the possibilities are limitless and so apparent that no effort
need be made to point them out. The
men behind the project promise to
erect a plant that will letine the entire output of tbe province.���Kaslo

During the present cold and grip

the following wholesale drug houseB of

Toronto, Feb. 21.���The feature of
Premier Ross' budget speech today
was the announcement that tbe government might undertake to build a
railway from North Bay to LakeTem-
lsca-ningue. The region was being
rapidly settled up yet had no railway.
No private company would build such
a railway without a subsidy,and there
was a rising feeling against subsidies
to railways. Under the cicrurastances
the government was disposed to undertake a survey to ascertain the cost
of the railway and then to take the
sense of the house on the propriety of
the construction of such a line. The
government would not be compelled to
run it.  It could be leased.
Winnipeg, FeO. 21.���After tbe formal reading of the speech from the
throne in the legislature today the
house adjourned until Monday next.
Premier Koblin gave notice that rail-
wa3* bills would be first read on Tuesday next. There was a very large attendance at the opening.
Interview With Ellas Rogers
of the Crow's Nest
Coal Co.
Says There Is No Shortage
of Coal for the B.C.
Laxative Bromo-Qulaine removes the cause.
The Vancouver World in its issue of
Monday last pnblisiied tbe following,
which The Miner reproduces for th.?
reason that it believes in giving all
the news all the time aud both sides
of every question:
Vancouver, Feb. 10, 1901.
Robert Jaffray, Toronto:
Report current here your company
unable to supply coal and coke for
interior mines and smelters. Is it
correct'.' Please answer, and make as
explicit as possible. Don't limit to
few words. TUB WOULD.
Tbe foregoing despatch was sent
by the Canadian Pacific telegraph,
and, as is always the case with business entrusted to that company, it wag
"rushed." On Saturday evening tbe
following was received in reply thereto over the Great North Western line,
less than^two hours after the first one
was sent from here:
Toronto, Feb. 10, 1001.
The World, Vancouver, B. C. :
The following interview is given by
Elias Rogers, managing director of
the Crow's Nest Coal company, in reply to questions asked by Mr. Jaffray:
'The first development work at
Crow's Nest Pass Coal company's
mines, near Fernie, B. C, was commenced something over two years ago.
In commencing operations there, difficulties were met with which are only
incident to mountainous country,
such as that where the geology is
largely unknown, and can only be
proved by actual drift work. The
Crow's Nest railway was only just being built. Supplies of all kinds had
to be brought long distances and there
were many
which are unknown in other coal
fields. Notwithstanding all this, and
other difficulties which might be named, the Crow's Nest Coal Co. have
brought the capacity of the Coal creek
mines up to over 1,200 tons per day,
and have now reached a point where
rapid increase in the output may he
expected. This record is not one to
be ashamed of. If we have not supplied everything that has beeen asked
for, there are reasons for it, and
which will satisfy every unprejudiced
mind. Lack of railway facilities have
not been the least of our difficulties,
although we are disposed to make
every allowance on this account for
the difficulties under which the railway was operating. Still, this has
been a matter of material consequence
to us. During the past summer there
were unusual delays in obtaining certain mining machinery, the delivery
of some of our supplies being four
and five months behind the contract
time. In consequence of this we were
obliged to work some of our machines
beyond tbeir capacity���a power engine more partieularly. In December
we had an unfortunate accident to
this machine, which delayed our operations for several weeks. Fortunately
a new power engine was on tbe way
at the time, and has since been installed. So that at the present moment this difficulty is
and we are now turning out more coal
and coke than the entire market of
British Columbia can take, as tbat
market only requires 300 tons of coke
and 500 tons of coal per day.
"A year ago, when the British Columbia smelters closed down, without
notice, we were left entirely without a
market for our coke product, and
would have been obliged to shut down
onr coke plant, but for the fact that
we were able to make a contract for
a limited quantity with Montana
smelters. It was necessary at the
time to make a contract with Montana people in order to get business,
and this was done with the knowledge
and approval of the Canadian Pacific
railway, and all parties concerned.
When loo late to arrange for lurther
coke oven construction,British Columbia mines and smelters  again started,
up,und not only called for the amount
of coke previously taken, but enormously Inereused theii demands.
Notwithstanding all tblo, however,
we have succeeded in supplying
with the exception of the times when
there was a shortage of cars, and other transportation difficulties, uml during the time when our power engine
was crippled. Of course, it is understood that coke ovens cannot bo built
in winter, and that mines cannot be
developed with unlimited speed. But
there is practically no limit to the
possible ultimate capacity whloh
may be developed both in mines and
coke plant.
"Oui company have already arranged plans and made provision for tho
expenditure of almost a million dol
lars during the next summer In the
further development of mines and coke
ovens construction if we succeed In
securing direct access to the American
market���which we hope to do. This,
instead of in any way limiting the
supply for British Columbia, will Increase our ability to meet the fluctuating demands of the trade. It is Unsettled policy of our company to make
first provision for British Colombia
trade, and to do everything in our
power to assist in promoting the industries of that country."

List of Subjects Which Will
Come   Up for DIs-    .
Stories  of a Deal  are Incorrect���Sunday Mining
P. Mourgues. engineer for the Chapleau Mining company, has requested
The Miner to give publicity to a statement In regard to the company's
affairs. "Ail tbe statements published legardlng a proposal to amalgamate the Kilo group of claims on
Lemon creek with the Chapleau property are incorrect and it is annoying
to see the matter reiterated when the
facts are quite at variance with the
truth," says M. Mourgues. "Beyond
the faot that a certain proposUion
was made to the Chapleau people by
the owners of the Kilo, no statement
is justified. The first step in the direction of a deal would naturally be
an exhaustive examination of tbe
property, and when I tell you that I
have never set foot on Kilo ground
you will understand how far the negotiations have progressed."
���   ���   *
Within the next month or two, or
as soon as weather permits, the Sunday Mining company will commence
operations on their liritish Columbia properties, principally in the Erie
district. J. K. Tartc managing director, informs The Miner that this
has been decided upon and as tlie company's holdings are said to be among
the most promising prospects in the
district, their development is likely
to be extensive.
The company is a Quebec corporation with headquarters at Waterloo.
Quebec. It holds ten claims, two of
which, the Sunday and Yvonne, are
located on Uttertail creek, East Kootenay a��d the bafance on the north fork
of Salmon river near Erie. Considerable work has been done on tho S.in-
day claim and a quantity of ore carrying silver, copper and lead has been
mined. A trial shipment to the Trail
smelter in October last netted (50.46

Tl��������� V'sociated Boards of Trade of
S,..i...,.n liritish Columbia hold their
[nrinu.il meeting in Greenwood on the
J8th Instant, when the following subjects will he discussed:
First���All matters acted upon by
the association and not yet disposed
of hy legislation. These include
su'-i* points as the iccoguition of the
��� Boundary" country on the maps of
the district, mine bulletins, wagon
roads and the funds to raise the same
for the opening up of mining dis-
tiicis. the necessity of a resident supreme cuuit judge in the Kootenays,
Inadequate provision for public
schools, maps showing the occupied
government lands, the saddling of
municipalities with the construction
of mining loads In their townshlpH,
the royalty on timber and the undefined nature of the right of mine owners to purchase the surface rights of
their claims.
Second.--All matters acted on at the
special meeting of December \2, 1H00,
or referred at that meeting to the annual convention. This includes the
approving of the appointment by the
provincial government of a mining
Commission to enquire into the relations of the public policy of the Dominion to the mining in.lustry, the
presentation of data to such a commission by the Associated Boards,
the appointment of one or more mem-
b''rs, nominated by the boards, to the
mining commission, the suggestion of
the names of G. O. Buchanan, of
Kaslo I'. Ross of Greenwood, and R.
F. 1 n'tnie of Trail, us members of
flu* toinmisslon, the creation of a
���separate department of mines, the application of thu coast hoards to be admitted to tlie Associated boards, and
tlie coast to Kootenay   railway.
Third���By tho Greenwood board.
The coul question as affecting the
smelting interests of the mining sections.
Fourth���By the Grand Forks
board. Renewed efforts toward the
appointment of a minister of mines
iu tlie Dominion cabinet. Open railway policy in Southern British Columbia. Cheaper freight rates into
the Boundary country. Increased
parliamentary representation in both
Dominion uud Provincial houses. In
view ol the fact that commissions
have been appointed by our government and the United States to settle
the boundary line in the Mount Baker district, whether or not it is advisable that such commission should
extend its operations and investigations through the whole of Southern
British Columbia.
Fifth���By the Nelson board. Tbe
delegates of the Nelson bourd will
presiut a motion asking the Associated boards to recommend the passing of
legislation which will improve the existing laws ou bankruptcy.
Sixth���Hy the Trail and Nelson
hoards. Whereas there is at flic present time no lead refining works in the
Dominion of Canada and the initial
cost of establishing such a plant is
very great, it is tlie opinion of this
association that tlie Dominion government should encourage the establishment of such a plant by a grant foi a
term of years of a bounty of to per
ton upon all lead of Canadian origin
smelted and refined in Canada.
Seventh. ���By the Kamloops board.
Whereas, the B. C. Inland Board of
Trade of Kamloops has initiated a
movement having in view the establishment in the neighborhood of
Kamloops or ut some other point in
the dry belt of British Columbia, of a
sanitarium for the treatment of persons suffering from pulmonnty tuberculosis: and intends to petition both
the federal and provincial governments for assistance in establishing
and maintaining such sanitarium; be
it resolved, thut this meeting of the
Associated Boards of Trade of Eastern
British Columbia hereby endorses the
action of the said It. C. Inland Board
of Trade of Kamloops in this respect,
and hopes tbat its endeavors to obtain assistance from the federal and
provincial governments for the establishing of such an institution as aforesaid will meet with success.
Eighth���By the Kaslo board. The
delegates of the Kaslo Board of
Trade will present a resolution defining the pjwers of the executive
council of tlie association and providing that at any meeting regularly
called the executive council may in its
own name memorialize the Dominion
or Provincial governments or any of
the departments or ministers of cither,upon any question; provided that a
copy of any memorial so forwarded
Shall be Immediately transmitted to
each of the boards of trade within
the association. And that it sholl be

A number of people have been kind
enough during the past few days to
say that a decided improvement is noticeable iu The Miner Bincc its staff
underwent a process of reconstruction. The Miner is pleased at tbis
and refers to it for the purpose of
pointing out to its readers and patrons bow important it is that efforts
to establish in Nelsona thoroughly up-
to-date newspaper���ono representative
of this most important commercial
centre and the Kootenays���should be
backed up by adequate support from
the public. If the Miner is a good paper, please say so; subscribe for it and
try to induce your friends to do like
wise; advertise in it, and lend it a
helping hand in every way possible.
The Miner will always be found laboring in the true interests of Nelson and
the Kootenays. It will work unceasingly for their advancement. It conceives that to ho its true mission ; and
it desires that that shall be properly
understood by the public. Accorded
the degree of support whicli it merits, there is no reason why The Minei
should not flourish as Nelson flourishes, and grow into a newspaper
worthy in every respect of the important district in wbich it   is published.
The uncertainty which exists as to
whetherjlls Royal Highness the Duke
of York will visit Western Canada has
led to the suggestion being put forward that the western cities should
communicate with him at once and
formally invite him to extend his visit
westward. The suggestion is a good
one and no time should be lost in
putting it into .effect. __

The tragedy that has transformed

grave catastrophe and open the eyes of
the imperial authorities to tbe truth

Before tlie accident happened at the
Union mines a petition had been prepared by the coal miners of Vancouver Island, ready to be laid befoie the
legislators at the session which is
about to meet, asking that certain restrictions which tbey consider necessary for their protection should bo
made law There is nothing to indicate that any of the precautions they
ask should be made obligatory bad

mine at which the catastrophe occurred ; but force has been lent to their demands by the accident and public
opinion has been aroused in a way
that will make it exceedingly difficult
for our legislators to deny their request.���Victoria Times.

Ottawa's medical health officer
wants a Dominion law enacted requiring all meat sold for human consumption to be stamped by a government
inspector as fit for human food. This
seems a rather unique suggestion;
but no one will be inclined to scoff at
it, when it is remembered how necessary it is that all possible precautions be taken for the protection of
the public health.
"Everything comes to those who
know how to wait." At last work is
to be started on the new postofflce and
custom house building, lt is a matter for regret that the coutract was
not given to a local tenderer; but we
suppose it is vain to hope that liritish
Columbia men will be "in it" in the
matter of government contracts until
Quebec's capacious maw has been
thoroughly stuffed with pap.
Much important legislation is   forecasted in the speech   from   the thron<
at the opening of the provincial legislature   yesterday.    Bills   to aid three
railway   projects will   be   introduced,
one being a line from Boundary Creek
to the coast.    This annoucement   will
be hailed witb pleasure  by the people
of   the   interior.    Tbe bill to aid   tht
extension of the E. tit  N.   railway   to
the north   end   of   Vancouver   island
will no doubt   receive   hearty support
from   members   on   both sides of   the
house, as it is a project   essentially in
the interests of   the   whole   province.
General support also will no doubt be
lent to the scheme to build an all-Canadian   line   to tap the   Yukon.    This
is a road which is much needed. Some
necessary amendments   to the mining
laws are   promised.    It is to be hoped
that the fullest consideration   will be
given   to legislation of this character.
Tbe measure aiming at the   establishment oi the wood pulp industry in thf
province is wisely conceived in its intent   and   will   be   welcomed   on   all
sides.    It is satisfactory to know that
a reduction iu freight   rates affecting
interior   points   has   been   obtained.
On tbe   whole, the  legislation   promised in   the   speech   is   calculated   to
elicit general approval.
In another column we print a dispatch from Vancouver containing the
very important announcement that
the C. P. R. will refuse to handle

points until the coal company has fulfilled its promises to supply the British Columbia market. This is a move
which will speedily bring matters to
a crisis and the C. P. R. is to be commended for its pluck in thus forcing
the issue. We shall refer to the situation thus created at greater length in
to-morrow's issue.

As The Miner believes it is the duty
of a newspaper to print all the news
and give both sides of a controversy
it reproduces in another column the
report ��>f an interview with EliaB Rogers, managing director of the Crow's
Nest Coal company, on tbe matter of
smelters and the coke supply. Mr.
Rogers makes the statement that his
company is "now turning out more
coal and coke than tbe entire market
of British Columbia can take, as that
market only requires 300 tons of uoke
and 500 tons of coal per day." This
seems at variance with the facts as
we have been led to understand them,
and we shall feel obliged if some
one conversant with the situation will
take up Mr. Rogers' interview and
reply to it through The Miner.

Mr. Joseph Martin is sick of politics
in British Columbia and wants to retire to private life. Let him go. Let
no man raise a hand to stop him. Bis
going will bo a matter for rejoicing
rather than for regret. It may seem
somewhat heartless to say this, but it
is true. What is tlie use of bandying
words about the matter'.' The people
huve no use for Mr. Martin in public-
life and might us well say so. It is
but the bald truth tn say that since he
-ami' to British Columbia from Manitoba he did the province a great deal
of harm. lie, and be uloue, was responsible for the passage of much pernicious legislation���legislation which
did the province an incalculable
amount of injury, from the effects of
which it will not recover fo< many-
years to come. That is the truth about
Mr. Martin; so we say let bim go.
But in saying this we are referring to
him in his public capacity. As a private citizen we wish him success and
prosperity. Ue is an able man and a
bard worker, and deserving of success.
Who will be his successor as leader
of the opposition'.' That is a hard
question to answer. Thero is a singular paucity of able men in public life
in British Columbia and there is not a
man in the legislature today who possesses the true qualities of successful
leadership. Why this should be so is
difficult to undertsand, for there are
many able men in the province. But
they do not come forward and seek
election. They are content to attend
to their private business affairs. This,
from their own personal etajdpoint,
js perhaj'o an act of wisdom, but Brit-
The days' news is like milk. Unless it is used when it is fresh it

By the length of the nose, from the root

the tendency to suspicion.
Whether one acquiesces in such details
of nasal language, there is no doubt that
general force of character is associated
with a certain strength In this feature of

Facts In Marino v. Alexander.
Briggs v. Newswander
The notion of Marino  vs. Alexander
was I'liiiini.'iii'iiil at yesterday's session
of the supreme court, Mr. Justice Irv
inn: presiding, and the indications arc
that the hearing will not be concluded
until   tomorrow, in   which event   the
sittings   will extend   Into next week.
The   action    now     being   heard      Ih
brought by O. J. Marino of Now Denver, against Oeoige Alexander of Kaslo, Alexander   Sproat  nnd Angus Melnnes of New Denver.    Marino claims
tp have advanced about   83,00(1 for the
development   of   the Marlon   mine   in
the New Denver camp to the three defendants,   holding   himself   responsible for a   quaiter of tlio expenditure.
At tbe time   all   the  parties were interested equally in  the   Marion.    The
development work In question is alleged to have been done   by the plaintiff
nnder his own exclusive direction and
control.   The    defendant    Alcxnnder
says be never authorized the  expenditure or wns   party in any way to  the
outlay.    The   defendants   Sprout  and
Melnnes  state   that  the   moneys ex-
ponded weie disbursements  -under  at
agreement   in   writing  dated December 17, 1HIIH, between   them  and Marino.    This document exists.    The contention is that   Marino   expended the
money and conducted the mining operations on the understanding   that   he
should be   remunerated   for his   laboi
and be reimbursed for his    outlay out
of such ore as he might take out of the
mine and tbat in   no  event   were the
defendants   to   be    responsildc.    Tbe
further   contention     Is   set   up   that
through Improper   methods uf mining
Marino got only   one car  of  ore, and
that he has no remedy against the defendants   under   the agreement.    Defendant Sproat also puts   in a counter
claim for 81,000, loans and commission
on tbe sale of tbe California   group.
Plaintiff Mi.riii.) was on the stand
all day yesterday. The action has
brought out a formidable array of
legal talent, the counsel engaged being: John Elliot and R. S. Lennie
for Marino, W. A Macdonald, K. C,
and A. M. Johnson for Defendant
Alexander, S. S. Taylor, K. 0., for
Defendant Sproat, C. \V. McAnn
F. L. Christie for Defendant
whnt they had not made up their
minds about themselves.' Mr. Justice
Fry said, 'I think it cannot be enforced either directly or indirectly.' Then
in re Vince there was a partnership
under a written agreement appending
a statement of the assets and liabilities of the business. The agreement
provided that in the event of the borrower being unable to pay any interest by reason of the deficiency of the
profits a 'duo allowance should bo
made by W. Baxter to John Vinee In
rospeet of thu si.me in a fair and reasonable manner.' The borrower became bankrupt. The uouit came tu tbe
conclusion that there might bo nn
allowance. However it came up before the court of appeal nnd the decision was reversed.
' 1 know of no standard by which
the court can say what Is a reasonable
minium, of shares to be given. Under
the circumstances 1 think I shall have
to dismiss this action ; but as I do not
think the defendants behaved properly 1 shall do su'withuut costs."

Text  of   Judgment���Defendants
Not Behave Properly.
Mr. Justice Irving has handed
down his judgment in Briggs vs.
Newswander. The award is for defendant, dismissing the action without costs, and is couched in the following terms:
"I bave looked at the enses that
have been handed to'me by Mr. Taylor by nie this morning aud I turned
up some cases last night. Now, the
matter about the time the contract
was entered into stood this way:
The plaintiff's claims were about to
rnn out, and the time fur adversing
the defendant's claims was about to
run out���the parties met together and
had one agreement drawn up, Bl.
By that agreement it was altogether
optional, in express terms, whether
the defendants should give the plaintiffs anything or nothing. A conversation took place in which different
Bums were mentioned. No definite
agreement seems to have been reacbed.
The parties then put into writing
the second agreement, B 2, then the
documents were both signed and exchanged, the one for the other. Both
parties looked upon these documents
as of equal force and I assume tbat
they are of equal force and the second
oontract is binding.
"The second point then is���is the
plaintiff entitled to any interest in tbe
claims or is he entitled to demand In
a court of law any shares in a company about to be incorporated? About
illusory contracts, at page 13? of 0,
Ruling Cases, I find the following
with reference to tbe making of a contract. " Then follow several cases
quoted at some length.
"Now there have been a number of
contracts in which apparent contracts
have been made���the drat I cite is
Davies vs. Davies. It was first heard
by Kekewick, J., and then on appeal,
the case turning on a covenant contained in a dissolution of partnership.
The retiring partner, who received a
large sum of money, covenanted to
retire from the partnership and,so far
aa the. law allows, from the business,
and not to trade to in any way, directly or indirectly, in the business of
the continuing partners. In an action
b> the surviving partners to restrain
a similar business being carried on in
Middlesex, Mr. Justice Kekewich
thought that that covenant to retire
from the business 'so far as the law al-
lowb' was not too vague for the court
to deal with. I don't know anything
tbat expresses thiB case neater than
tbat���'tbey ask tbe law to do for tbem

Edwin C. Smith, M. P. .P, arrived
In last evening on his way to the capital. The member from Fort Steele
expressed great regret at being unable
to reach Victoria in time for yesterday's khaki opening of the legislature
but has been detained by nn attack of
la grippe. Ten days ago he was
undertaking a general visitation of
his constituency when the epidemic
laid him up and although after a couple of days he continued his travel it
was at great personal Inconvenience,
and even yet he is far from looking
himself. Mr. Smith was quite surprised to hear the report that Joseph
Martin had resigned the leadership of
the opposition, but considered that
should the leader take that step the
mantle would fall upon Smith Curtis,
who had done all the fighting during
the session of last summer.
In south East Kootenay he reports
that tho greatest dissatisfaction exists over the heavy tax on the output
of ihe mines. In comparison with
many other parts tbe taxes on personal and real property in this province
are exceptionally light which makes
the high rate imposed upon the miner
all the more noticeably oppressive.
East of Kootenay lake the country
at present is In quite a nourishing
condition. The coal and silver-lead
mines are producing both largoly and
steadily while the other industries
and business of that district are progressing with rapid strides. Mr.
Smith leaves for the coast this evening.
Under the  caption "Farewell," the
Rossland Miner publishes the  following verses   on the occasion   of  losing
the championship hockey cup:
(Adapted to   Suit the Occasion.)
Good-bye, old cup I We   thought,   you
We'd keep you here a few more seasons;
And now we've lost our grip on   you,
Por   plain    and    likewise   painful
But   well   we've   fought to have  you
We find it hard to give yon up;
We've made them fight your cause for
And now you go. Good-bye,old cup!
Good-bye,   old   cupl We've   done  our
To keep you in our fuir collection ;
We've slashed and played the game for
As thousands have the recollection.
Yea, often have opposing teams
Assailed us, failed, and given up,
Yet now you go to Nelson !
We did oor best. Good-bye, old cup.
resolved that it is expedient and ne-
eeSBnry that the existing Fort Steele
mining division be divided, and tbat
tbis association recommend the following sub-division: A southwestern
division beginning ut a point on the
western boundary of the present mining division, thence east along the
watershed between St. Mary's river
and Moyie nver, passing north of
Cranbrook and terminating at a point
on the west side of Kootenay river;
thencu following such river so as to
Include Wiirilner, south to boundary

West Kooten.iy; thence north along
