Edward Whyman, an employee at the B. C. E. R.
car shops yesterday received the happy tidings that
he had won the big prize in the Derby sweepstake
held at the Horseshoe hotel, Vancouver. A few days
ago, Mr. Whyman speculated a dollar on the chance
of getting something out of the lottery sweep, drawing Spearmint the winner of the Blue Ribbon turf,
and this dollar has netted to him the biggest interest
of any money he ever invested in his life. While the
exact figures were not knowm last night, it is thought
that his share of the sweep will be something over a
thousand dollars, as he gets forty per cent of the total amount realized by the sale of tickets. Mr. Mcdonald, of Seattle, drew the ticket on Picton, the
second horse, and F. Calder, of Keefer street, Vancouver gets third with the ticket drawing Troutbeck.
Mr. Whyman is still quite a young man, and the
sum of money so easily realized will give him a good
start in life, and may possibly be the first step on
the road to wealth. Mr. Whyman, who lives with
his parents at the cornet of Fifth avenue and Sixth
street, was the recipient of many congratulations
from his friends last night on the occasion of his
good fortune. He is well known in this city, having
lived here all his life.

Is not founded upon any thing in the

that the company cannoi afford to let
its rivals get ahead of it. The development of Canada and the march of

Emerson Will Take Action.
,!. S. Emerson, who has won out in
another tilt with the commissioner of
lands and works in connection with
the recent seizure of logs which he
proposed exporting, and which he re-
plevined, is now out with a declaration that he means to go back at those
who have been troubling him, and, as
he puts it, Mr. Green may now have
to do a little dodging himself.
The status of the matter is a little
peculiar, in view of the last paragraph
of the judgment, which reads:
"I must therefore hold that the act
does not apply to the timber in question. That being so, the defendant had
no power to seize it, and the crown,
as  represented  by  the chief commis
sioner, had no power to authorize its
seizure under the statute in question;
and, therefore, as the crown can do no
wrong, there was no crown seizure at
all, and the timber was not in the
possession of the crown when replevied from the defendant."
Under these circumstances Mr. Emerson can only obtain redress by going after the officers of the crown personally, as the learned judge holds
that, the boom was never in the possession of the crown.

It is a traditionary etiquette custom
