UNDERGROUND WORK
PRIVY COUNCIL DECISION PERMITS
CHINESE TO DO SO'
Province Haa No Jurisdiction  on Matters of Sunday Legislation.  Colliery  Company's Appeal
Dismissed.
The Privy Council has refused the Dominion government leave to appeal from the
jungment of the supreme court
of Canada in the Lord's Day
case. This means that the
provinces have no jurisdiction
in such legislation.
The appeal in the case of
attorney-general of British Columbia vs. Wellington Colliery
Company was dismissed last
Wednesday. This was regarding the question of the legality
of the Wellington Colliery Company employing Chinese underground in the mines in contravention of the provincial act
vhich sought to prohibit it
from doing so. The company
assumed the position tliat the
provincial government had no
jurisdiction to prevent the company from ordering its servants
to any part of its own property,
and the Privy Council apparently has endorsed this contention by dismissing the appeal of the attorney-general.

Wants Damages for Making a Battlefield of Manchuria.
A New York despatch says: Coincident
! with China's notice to the   powers, that
! Manchuria must be restored to her intact
whatever may be the terms of agreement
reached at  the Portsmouth Peace Con-
j ference   by the  envoys  of   Russia and
. Japan, it is learned that the Chinese gov-
eminent intends to  follow this up by de
minding of the belligerents a big indent
j nity as compensation  for the occupation
of Manchuria by hostile armies.
The  amount  of  the indemnity tn he
' asked   will   be,   at   least   fl00.00O.04KI.
This amount of damage the Chinese government estimates has been done to Man-
i churia, a Chinese province, through the
I trampling  down of  the  fields, and d.--
I tructiiin of villages that were seized and
I held as bases for operation, and the loss
to China by the failure of the belligerents
to vacate Manchuria promptly.
It is not believed that the Chinese
themselves seriously expect reimbursement for the injury sustained, but the
motive in taking such a step on the part
of China ii further to define her position
in regard to Manchuria, tn the world at
large.
China ii particularly anxious that the
idea of her oomplete ownership of Man
churia should be emphasized in connection with the Peace Conferenoe at Portsmouth, because she desires international
support in the negotiations which she will
conduct with Japan after peace is assured.
Many Advantages by Going New Route
Than the Old One   Easier Grades,
and Cheaper Construction Work.
The Nicola Herald has reliable information that a pass
has been discovered east of the
old railway survey which will
enable the C, P. R. to get a
lower route from Nicola through
the Aspen Grove to Similkameen.
H. J. Cambie chief engineer
of the C. P. R., visited Nicola
this week on railway business
and took a trip up to Aspen
Grove to the watersheds looking over the feasibility of the
proposed routes. He was accompanied by Claude Snow-
den of Princeton, who kindly
showed him over the new pass.
.The old route of the C.P.R.
passes Nicola about 150 feet
above Nicola river, commen-
mencing to raise at the Forks,
but by taking this new pass
through Aspen Grove the railway line takes almost a level
route from Coutlee and passes
Nicola on the flat across the
river. It would then follow
the level of the lake to Quil
chena raising at Quilchena
creek and following the valley
of that creek to a point due
south from The Falls, Aspen
; Grove, striking the watershed
eight miles farther south than
it does on the old survey made
by the C P. R some years
ago. It also makes a difference'
of about 300 feet between Nicola and Aspen Grove, being
that much lower.
By going through this new
pass the railway company can
not only make it p issible lo
work the mines to better ad
vantage but can enormously increase their tonnage. Besides
they will hive easier and
cheaper construction work.
By following the the lower
route it will bring the line down
to a point at Quilchena that at
some future time when extensions may be made to Kamloops and Okanagan sections
the grade will be in such a position that work can be continued on, thus saving a dis-
of fifteen miles between Quilchena and Coutlee.
There is every likelihood
that this route will now be
taken and further investigations
will be made in a few days to
definitely settle the question.
Found at Howarth Lake Imbedded In
the Mud.
I    Jos. R  A. Richards  proprietor of the
.Coutlee Hotel, is the proud  possessor of.
a fine pair of elk horns, probably the lar
gest 111 the province.
The elk horns were taken from How
arth lako by W. Howarth this spring, he
having found them imbedded in the mud
on the shore of the lake with only the
tips protuding. On u.covering them he
was much surprised at their size, the
horns standing five and a half feet high
tnd are <prttad from tip to tip three feet
seven inches.
Mr.  Howarth delivered them to Mr
Richards this week who  will  have them
��� i-'ied and mounted to adorn his ho��
.elry.
It is over thirty years since elk were
known to exist in this country, and al
though having been buried for years in
the lake and debris, the horns are in ex
celleiit condition.

is to aid iu the defence of it should ocoa
sion ever demand its service. Those who

English lord who wandered from camp
near Quesnel, after suffering hardships
and privations, no trace of him ever having been found. Pocock has alio written
a number of short stories of his adventures in the north. THE   NICOLA   HERALD
