The decision of Chief Justice Hunter on the British Columbia Nata! Act is regarded at
Ottawa as a practical settlement of the whole question
Even if British Columbia should
appeal to the privy council, the
act could not be enforced pending the final decision of the latter court, as it would be within
the power of the dominion to
secure an injunction from the
court restraining the province
from any further attempt to enforce the act
By awaiting the action of
the court the dominion government, it is claimed, has obtained a better settlement of the
question than if it had disallow
ed the act In the latter case
the province could at once have
passed another act, and the
situation of the past few days
would have been repeated.
A cable was sent to the
Japanese government acquainting it with the facts of the case
and giving the assurance that
if the courts did not promptly
declare the act ultra vires.it
would be disallowed, ln any
case the interests of Japanese
would be adequately protected
by the government
With the Ottawa views on
the ruling it hai not interfered
with the enforcing of the act,
excepting to Japanese.
STOESSEL SENTENCE.
Has Petitioned Emperor for
Full Pardon.
Lieutenant-General Stoessel was
condemned to death at St.Petersburg
on Thursday last by a military
court for the surrender of Port
Arthur to the Japanese.
General Fock, who commanded
the Far East Siberian Division of
Port Arthur, was ordered to be
reprimanded for a disciplinary offence which was not connected
with the surrender, and General
Smyrnoff, general commandant of
the fortress, and Major General
Reiss, chief of staff to General
Stoessel, were acquitted on the
charges against them for lack of
proof.
The court recommended that tbe
death sentence on Lieutenant-General Stoessel be commuted to ten
years' imprisonment in a fortress,
and that he be excluded from the
service.
Stoessel has petitioned Emperor
Nicolas for a full pardon.

Stanley Kirby of Quilchena was
in Nicola this week.
J. G. Thynne of Otter valley was
at Coutlee yesterday.
Walter Clark, constable at Merritt was in Nicola last evening.
D. Munro arrived at Merritt this
week and is engaged in hauling
freight to the Similkameen.
John E. Bate returned from Vancouver and Seattle on Monday after
a several weeks trip.
The budget speech waa ddhited by
Hon. R.G. Tatlow at the sitting of tht
legislature laat week, the aatimatei being brought down by special meaaage.
Never has the financial poaition of
the province been ao satisfactory. A
net surplus of revenue over expenditure of 11,201,000 was reported. This
waa due to the faet that the actual
revenue of the province bu grown by
leaps and bounds in the pest twelve
months, far beyond even the expectation of the government. The actual
expenditure exceeded the estimated expenditure by $220,000.
As the finance minister recounted the
steps which had been taken in reducing
the public debt of the province, his remarks were punctuated with frequent
outbursts of applause.
The estimates owing to the change in
the fiscal y oar are only for the nine
months ending March 31, 1909. They
provide for an expenditure of $3,143,-
276.66. This amounts to within $150,-
000 of the total expenditure of last
year. Over 1700,000 is to be voted for
roads, trails and bridges while each of
the various departments of government
owing to the expansion of the last year
requires a larger amount set aside for
it.
Capt. Tatlow dealt at some length
with the condition of the different industries of the province and his remarks
in this connection were heartily applauded.
In the estimates appears for Yale district the sum of $34,000. Similkameen
receiving $26,000.
SCORES THE JUDGES.
Who Says the Legislators
are Disloyal
There was a warm scene in
the provincial legislature on
Tuesday, originating in the
words used by Justice Clement
when the full court was dismissing the appeal on the Natal
Act
Mr. Hawthorthwaite launch
ed  a violent  attack on the
judges, who, he declared, were
wanting in decency in accusing
the legislators of disloyalty.
Hon. Mr. Bowser read a
despatch he had prepared to
be sent to the minister of justice. He condemned Justice
Irvine and Clement for their
poor taste, and said that
in his opinion the latter was
exceeding his duty in attribut
ing motives to the elected representatives of the people. He
said the judges were making
his course as chief law officer
of the crown a difficult one,
and ended by hoping that it
would not be necessary for him
as head of the judicial administration, to introduce necessary
legislation.

On* ftr Kamloopa.
The return hockey match between Nicola and Kamloops teams
was played in Kamloops on Thursday.
The Nicola team left Tuesday
afternoon arriving at Kamloops at
an early hour Wednesday morning,
expecting to play the same afternoon, but owing to the poor condition of the ice, the game was postponed until the following morning,
when the ice was in fair condition.
As the style of play of the visiting team, confined to individual
rushes, was entirely unsuited to
the ice, the team lined out, some-
whatdubious as to the outcome,
but resolved to wipe out the former
defeat of a Nicola team, and even
up old scores if possible.    ���
Referee England whistled the
teams out at 10 a.m. sharp, and
after the customary warning, faced
the puck. Tne Nicola forwards
went at it, hammer and tongs,
with the result that after two minutes of play Charlton scored, immediately followed by Curtin, placing the Nicola team two goals to
the good.
Forthwith as the ice was becoming heavier, the game resolved itself into a purely defensive one, on
the part of Nicola team. After
seventeen minutes of strenuous
play, Somes notched one up for
Kamloops, and excitement became
correspondingly intense. The half
ended without further score.
The second half was twenty-five
minutes of hockey of the strenuous
kind, tripping, cross checking,
bodying, became household terms,
but the home team were unable to
overcome the visiting defence, and
the welcome time keepers whistle
noted the end of the game, with
victory perching upon the red and
blue of jNicola, by the close score
of two to one.
The Nicola team returned this
morning, reporting a most enjoyable trip, and with nothing but
words of praise for the treatment
accorded them by the Kamloops
club.
H. L. Roberts who moved his
stock of merchandise to Field several months ago, has sold the same

EDITORIAL NOTES.
Every indication points that
the Laurier administration will
not facfe another session of the
present parliament and what
appears to be good authority,
will go to the country in October or November of this year.
GENERAL   MERCHANTS
Application will be made to
the provincial government for
the privilege of clearing the
Coldwater river of obstructions
from its mouth to Railroad
Pass, a distance of 25 miles,
for the1 purpose of m,iking the
river fit for driving and rafting
logs etc.
The budget speech was delivered and estimates brought
down last week by Finance
Minister Tatlow. The province has never been in such a
position financially. The public debt has1 been reduced considerably. Tlie surplus of revenue over expenditure amounts
to over a million dollars. .
The Natbl Act is still in
force. Following the decision
of the chjef justice there is a
widespread and erroneous idea
that the Natal Act is killed
The chief justice did not deal
with the Natal Act from its
constitutional standpoint. He
simply pointed out that the act
was inoperative against the
Japanese owing to the existing
treaty to which Canada is a
party. He did not do lare the
act ultra vires and consequently
the provincial police are still
watching boats and trains and
enforcing the act in respect to
every nationality with the exception of the Japanese. The
provincial government on Mon
day entered an appeal before
the full from the decision of
the chief justice.
A circular letter trom His
Grace Archbishop Langevin of
Winnipeg, on the subject of
mixed marriages, was read ip
the Roman Catholic churches
of the archdiocese last Sunday.
The circular declared in substance, that in future the mar
riage of two Roman Catholics
by a Protestant minister in his
archdiocese will not be recog
nized as valid. No change
will be made for the present
with regard to the regulations
governing the marriages of a
Roman Catholic to a Protestant. This letter follows the
latest instructions to the church
authorities of Canada from the
Vatican.
