In The Courts
May  Unseat Councillor.
A novel point in election law was debated yesterday  before Judge Howay
in  the  county   court.
Nr. A. I). Morrison, Matsqui, petitioned the court to declare the election of Councillor T. II. Lehman to
Matsqui municipal council, null and
���void, on the ground that Mr. l.ehman
\��a8 a Sheriff's officer at the time of
election and since. His honor reserved   Judgment.
Thc Municipal act lays down specifically that no sheriff's officer may
be a councillor and the sole point for
���onriilcratinii was whether Mr. Lehman was disqualified by reason of
having occasionally served summonses
for the fheriff.
Mr. G. K. Martin, counsel tor Mr.
Lehman, argued that hc was not a
regular officer within the meaning of
the set
Sheriff T. J. Armstrong testified
that Lehman had been employed by
bin) to serve rnrnmonses. On .Ian. 11
lant he informed the sheriff that owing
to his candidature for a councillorship
on Matsqui council he could no longer
act. but that if the summonses were
sent up to him he would make arrangements to have them served by
some other person. Lehman had
aerved n summons on Keb. 5, after the
Mr. "Martin contended thnt liis ar
rangement with the sheriff did not
constitute Lehman a sheriff's officer.
An officer was one charged with the
performance of a public duty.
Lehman was not in thai position.
His duty was simply' to take the in-
���structiuna or directions of tho sheriff
when he was required by the Sheriff
to serve summonses and for the time
being only.
He was not charged with any public
duty in any particular district, or to
act for the sheriff in any particular
Mr. W. J. Whiteside, K.C, for pcti
tioner, eubiiiittod that Mr. Lehman
was an officer at the time of the election and had been for years past. In
tho, Municipal act among the persons
���who may not be elected a councillor,
was mentioned a sheriff's officer.
Kvrry time Mr. I-ohman got a writ
to serve he was a sheriff's officer.
Judge Howay said he would consider the -question and if counsel
found any authorities bearing on the
���question within the next two or three
days, they might submit tin m to him

So far as applications from the Do- i made his mark  on th
minion  municipalities  to  London  for | is an admirable actor
money are concerned, soreness is still
felt here because Toronto did not issue  4   1-2   per  cent  Btock  instead   of
4  per cent  bonds,    lf  she  had  done
so,   it   is   contended   Montreal   would
probably  have got better terms  and
there would have been but little congestion.
The city of Winnipeg 4 1-2 per cent
bonds now stand at a quarter premium
and Montreal will probably share the
same  fate,  whereas Toronto  remains
forlorn at eight points discount.
There is talk of other loans of thr
same   sort   appearing,   Including   one
guaranteed   by   the  liritish  Columbia
government.    As there are still nearly
��3,000,000   of  Canadian   municipality
and provincial treasury bills afloat in
London, Canadian public finances are
by no means clear of tho woods.    So
recent   expressions   of  opinion   made
here that borrowers of this class ouglil
to limit their   demonstration   seems
perfectly   just i Tied.
The Pall  Mall Gazette today says:
"Canada has for the time being, pretty
well exhausted the market."    This is
too sweeping.   The fact is the market
is not exhausted  if proper terms are
given,  as  Indicated above.    The  i'all
Mall  Gazette, however,  only  asserti
that the exhaustion Is temporary and
contends   that   as  Canada   will   want
much more capital in Ihe future it ii
well to slacken the demand just now.

Here, as ln other rural districts of'
the province the prejudice against oriental labor was found not to be ao
strong as In the larger cities. The
farmers would prefer white labor if it
could be had, but they regard the oriental as a great deal better than nothing.
The mild Hindu sticks to his Job
and is therefore more desirable than
the transient white man who drifts in
from nowhere and flits Immediately
after the first pay day.
The provincial government has embarked upon an extensive system of
compulsory testing of dairy cattle for
tuberculosis, with the Intention that
all animals found to be affected shall
be destroyed.
Some of the farmers around Chllllwack are none too sure that the test
has the value claimed for It and, they
are quite certain that the rate of remuneration paid by the government
for slaughtered animalB is not high
The government pays two-thirds of
the value of each cow killed but not
more than $62 for any one cow. As
these cows are often worth $150 or
more the tuberculin  test is likely to
uise coiiBldirable loss to some dairymen.

Is no more reason why this attitude
should be confined to those lielow n

The girl who when she gets married
ceases to muke any effort whatever,

Is Now Nothing but a Harbor With a
History���Sawon  Rovers Replaced   Legions.
London. March f>. Quite one of the
quaintest corners to be met with along
the southern coast of England is the
small Sussex Inlet that is marked on
:lhe maps as "I'agham Harbor," says a
writer In lhe Monitor.
At high water this inlet has all the
appearance of a creek of some Importance, but the ebb of the tide
works wonders, and it gradually dini-
inlsl'i'S till nothing is left but a
stretch of mud hanks, dotted here and
. there with seaweed and the countless
gulls that have made the place their
feeding ground.
Winding its way inshore, at first
between great banks of shingle, then
like seme streak of shimmering silver Chrough the greenest of meadows
imaginable, It suddenly comes to au
end beside the disused quay and tumble-down mill of the pretty old hamlet of Sidlesham.
Vespasian's   Landing.
It was not far distant from here,
somewhere no doubt on the shelving
shores of the Selsey peninsula, that
Anlus Plantlus and Vespasian landed In A. D. 43, and as most of this district became eventually very much
Romanized, it may be practically
taken for granted that the galleys of
these undent people were constantly
navigating the creek.
No so long, however, after the departure of the Roman legions to assist In the defense of Italy the Saxon
rovers began to arrive. First a shipload would be beached at one point,
then at another. Next two or three
vessels would appear together, and
finally they came to land by scores.
Thus it happened that one fine day
the long ships of the chieftain Aella
were seen gliding up I'agham harbor
Whether at  that  period any village
may never he known for certain, but
only a few miles inshore lay Hegnuin.
| one of the largest   cities   of  Roman-
British times.    This Btronghold fell before the assault of Aella and his warriors, and although a protracted strug-
gle   ensued   before   the   surrounding
country   was   completely   conquered,
Clssa, one of  Aella'S suns, eventually
.became King of Sussex and the South
Saxons,  and   gave   tils  name   to  Iteg-
, mini as modern Chichester.
In   Tudor   Times
After bridging over the Intervening
centuries we find'it was recorded In
the reign of Queen Elizabeth that "the
creeks of Selsey, Arundel and Shore
ham are so decayed that they are unmeet to be continued.''
This "Creek of Selsey" being undoubtedly one and the same with Pag-
ham harbor, it would seem that in
Tudor times at all events It had Its
drawbacks That it cannot have been
regarded as really inaccessible to vessels of small tonnage is shown by the
fact, that the immense mound, situated
a short distance within the entrance
of the harbor, and which originally no
doubt was a tumulus of prehistoric
date, was Included In the general
scheme of defense prepared by those
entrusted with the protection of the
coast when the galleons of Ihe Armada were expected in 1588.
As it turned out, Medina Ridonia,
after contemplating a descent on
i Portsmouth, somewhat to tho westward, was driven by a change of wind
to continue his voyage up the channel,
and not one of the pikemen of Spain
set foot ashore at I'agham; In fact all
thai the fleberfoll. of Sidlesham can
bave seen of the Armada was a forest
of hulls and masts well out to sea.
Forty Yeara Ago.
The harbor has experienced more
than one great change since those
days, although any fame that It his
belong raltn r to the past than tha
present. Some 40 years ago. after effectually I locking the entrance to the
Inlet, a system of sluices and drainage was established and before very
long harvests were flourit-hing where
formerly Hie ships bad passed to and
1 from tha utiay.
Tie'lice once again the sea returned to the bed of the creek but Sidles-
has   has   long   Flnee   cased   to   he    a

London Advertiser Offers Steady Job

which appeared In a l_ondon morning
paper this week and which American
visitors to England would do well to
bear in mind when they are purchasing antique pieces of furniture which
jthoy discover in quiet English towns.
I 'Tho advertisement reads: "Polisher and faker wanted for antiques;
permanent job for good man." The
faker has to apply to a famous cathedral in the city which Is much
visited  by  tourists.
I Herbert Cescinsky. a well known
expert 111  antique  furniture, in a lee-
I ture thin week, declared that "In attempting to identify faked antique
furniture  yon  will  find  oak furniture

grain handling in this province conies
under the control of the Manitoba
drain act, which is in force throughout
the whole of western Canada.
Up to the present time the farmers
on the prairies have heary very little
of New Westminster owing to the fact
that no elevator was located In this
city but thc new plant of the Grain
Growers' B. C. Agency will be noted
in all publications connected with the
Industry and farmers can now ship
direct to this city.
Under the act the company will
have to take out a license for buying
grain direct from the farmers, known
as a track buyer's license and for this
a person or company has to deposit
a bond of $6000 in order to protect
the seller of the grain.
Then again an elevator license has
to be taken out which carries with it
another bond of $0u00 in order to protect the people having grain in storage in these same elevators.
A peculiar feature of the act Is that
no elevator concern can refuse to accommodate a farmer or grain agency
that wishes to store or sell grain, a
stipulated sum being charged for both
storage and commission on selling.
Thus if a farmer in Alberta desires
to ship cars of grain to New Westminster for either sale or hold, the local
company while it has the room in its
elevator must accept same.
The mill is in charge of Mr. L. G.
Payne, an experienced elevator man.
Unable to come to nn agreement
with the union fishermen engaged in
the halibut industry, the New Kngland Blah Company and the Canadian
Fishing Company of Vancouver, have
announced an increase of 50 per cent
in the wages paid to the men, taking
effect immediately
Since a strike was declared by the
union men in Vancouver aud Seattle
companies have not been hard pressed
for help owing to the fact that few
boats if any, were operating on the
hanks  during  the  winter
The latest announcement states the
wage increase will be maintained for
the year and that all former employees
will be given preference.
Whether the company Intends to
fight the union is not made known
1 but the fact that the Kingfisher left
��� for the banks with a non-union crew
I picked up in the east, gives rise to
I the rumors that a union card will not
be recognized by the companies from
I now on.
The strike has not affected the Columbia Cold Storage Company, owners
'of the Roman and the li. C. P. as
the demands of the men wore nc-
ceeded to in the first instance.
