TO DISALLOW ACT
THE BRITISH COLUMBIA IMMIORA
TION AOT.
g. t. p. railway.    BAIL WAS REFUSED   successful dange.   DRILL AT MERRI
First Conviction  Under th* Aot Took
Place at Warn Westminster on
Tueeday.-Two Japanese
Fined 1600 Each.
The federal government will
disallow the British Columbia
Natai act. Instruction were
wired the agent of the department of justice at the Pacific
coast, that if any attempt was
made under the provincial law
to deny admission to Japanese
immigrants habeas corpus proceedings would be taken at
once to contest the constitutionality of the act.
Notwithstanding the above
from Ottawa, the first conviction under the 1908 British
Columbia Immigration Act
was made at New Westminster
on Tuesday, when the magistrate fined to natives of Japan
$500 each or in default serve
twelve months in jail, on the
charge of having entered Canada in contravention of the
provision! ol the act. The
court stated that the prisoners
would be admitted to bail in
the sum of $500 each and in
two sureties of $2500 on condition that they would leave
the province within a month.
The defence gave notice Df
intention to take the case to
the supreme court.
Construction on Coast Line
Will be Rushed.
It is stated that award of the contract for the construction of the
first hundred miles of the line
Graud Trunk Pacific from Prince
Rupert east will be let by the
offcials of that company in Montreal
shortly. All tenders were opened
on the 6th of the month and since
that time the engineers have been
constantly engaged in the exami-
ation and comparison of the figures
submitted by the various contractors.
Vice-President Wainright and
solicitor D'Arcy Tate of the Grand
Trnnk Pacific are at Victoria for
the purpose of finally settling the
remaining differences between Brit
ish Columbia government and the
railroad.
It is practically certain that as
soon as an amicable agreement
with the government is completed,
work at the coast will be pushed
immediately. The government's
proposition made to the company a
few weeks ago has been accepted
by the directors and this trip of
the officials is to complete the
arrangements.
GOODWIN   COMMITTED  FOB TRIAL
Oil SEVEN CHARGES.
Oliver Walker Gives  Damaging Evl
Again.t   the    Accused.
Come Up For Trial at
Spring Assise.
The railway committee have reported in favor of the Vancouver
and Nicola Railway. In addition
to the recent increase of its capital
to $5,000,000 the committee made
two other changes today making the
narrow gauge as in the bill a broad
or standard gauge and cutting off
at one stroke two years from the
period within which the company
will be required to expend at least
$10,000 or forfeit its $5000 deposit.
The company had given itself until
Deember, 1911, to expend this sum,
but the committee thought December, 1906, a sufficient limit.
TO PARADE.
At a meeting of citizens in
Vancouver this week and it
was decided to hold a parade
on March 7th, to attract the attention of the authorities to
the number of Asiatics in the
country.
JUDGES DISAGREE.
The  unfortunate disagreement between  Chief Justice
Hunter and Uf. Justice Martin
Martin of the British Columbia
supreme court, which has been
a matter of notoriety for some
time,   is  likely  to  reach an
acute  stage, if not  an open
rupture, during the present sittings of the court.   The scene
in the court room was an amaz
ing one to all present.     The
matter may  now  come to a
head.
Young Peoples Guild.
The Young Peobles Guild held
its last meeting for the season on
Tuesday evening at the residence
of R. H. Winny.
It took the form of a hard times
party and many present certainly
represented the hard fact. The
evening was spent in games, singing and a very successful session
was brought to a close by singing
"Auld Lang Syne."

Rev. D. K. Allan will preach at Nicola Sunday 11 a. m. and 7:30 p.m.

The preliminary hearing of the charge
against A. R. Goodwin was held at
Monday and Tuesday, before E. T. W.
Pearse, J. P. Charles Wilson, K. C,
appeared for the prosecution, A. D.
Macintyre assisted by J. Murphy representing Goodwin.
After J. Whiteford had sworn to the
information the court was cleared of
witnesses in the case.
J. B. Greaves, manager for the Douglas Lake Cattle company, was then called and swore to the company's brands
stating that cattle raised by the company were branded on the right hip,
bought cattle being branded on left hip.
Oliver Walker deposed that about
April 12, he rounded up 28 head of
horses belonging to the Douglas Lake
Cattle company in the company's marsh
meadow. They were taken into the
corral at Greaves' and the brands of 14
bead were treated to an application of
certain lump-jaw and spavin cure,
which, acting as a blister, raised the
hide where applied and caused the
brand to come off in three or four days.
In this operation he was assisted by
prisoner, Goodwin, and the animals
with others to a total of 25 were removed to a field belonging to accused,
who in conversation with witness expressed his intention to ship them after
they got well. Later accused had got
into a row with a man named Lauder,
over some beef and Lauder had said he
had seen enough that day to put accus-
in jail. Accused who Was not informed
of what Lauder had seen, asked witness
what he had better do about it and witness replied that he did not know.
Cross-examined: Witness was bom
in Colorado and was occasionally occu
pied in riding. He was about 18 years
of age when he left there. He was
24 now. He came to Canada with an
uncle to take up land, and was in no
trouble of any sort when he left Colo-
aado, nor was he "wanted" there. He
had not revisited the place and the Colorado people knew his address. Wit-
came to Kamloops by way of Calgary
and Medicine Hat in November, 1904.
After staying a couple of months witness went to work for the Douglas
Lake Cattle company, stayed there
eighteen months, and being dismissed
for neglect of duty went to work at
Goodwin's.
Wm. Lauder, Jos. Coutlee, J. McCoy,
and the three Lampreau's also gave
evidence.
Goodwin was committed for trial on
seven charges, they being horse stealing; disfiguring brands on horses; disfiguring brands on cows; stealing cow
and calf; killing steers; theft of calves;
theft of stees.   Bail refused.
Ancient Order of Foresters
Entertain.
The Ancient Order of Foresters
were "at home" in Pooley's hall
last evening, to the members and
friends of the order. The hall had
been tastefully decorated for the
occasion and with |the designs and
emblems of the order displayed on
the wall formed an attractive scene.
The guests began to arrive at 9
o'clock and were received by the
officers of the order. Dancing commenced shortly afterwards and was
kept up til an early hour this morning.
An interval for refreshments
about twelve o'clock showed that
the committee in charge of the
dance had not been inattentive to
the wants of the inner man, an excellent supper being served in the
club room of the Nicola Athletic
Association which was done justice
to by all.
The dance was a complete success and was thoroughly enjoyed
by those present, many of whom
had come from distant parts of the
valley.
