THE STRIKE PERIOD
Mr. Justice Clement Shows That He Does not Believe
any Deduction Should be made for Period during
which Industrial Trouble Reigned—Counsel
reminds Him that City's Case is not yet
in—Plaintiff has all Evidence now
before His Lordship
The case for the plaintiff in Watson vs. the City of Prince Rupert
was concluded in the Supreme Court
yesterday afternoon. The city's evidence will be put in today, Preparatory to it Fred Peters, K.C.„ the city
solicitor, outlined some of the features of his defense. He showed that
whereas there were a lot of contracts to be dealt with by the city
the wish was to test the whole matter in the court as to what should
be paid.
His Lordship during the argument
clearly showed that he was not inclined towards any deductions for
loss of time during the strike,
although the course pursued by the
city officials might have been the
best under the circumstances. Mr.
Peters, however, pointed out that the
case for the city had not yet been
presented, His Lordship agreeing
that he would certainly keep his
mind open on the point until the
evidence was all in.
S. P. McMordie
Upon opening yesterday morning
tbe first witness called was S. P.
McMordie, another contractor for the
city. He gave evidence as to the
value of materials used and regarded
Mr. Watson's estimates as fair. He
,told of the meeting with Acting
Mayor Smith, when the latter wanted the contractors to desist from
attempting work until the strike was
over.
Superintendent's Views
W. J. McNeill, superintendent of
works for the city, was called by Mr.
Peters in order to allow him to leave
the city. He testified that the walls
were built of all kinds of stone.
Small stone was used for back filling. Witness denied that the contractor had to move the track more
frequently on account of the retaining walls being built. He believed
they had to move the tracks less
frequently than they would have
otherwise have done. On several
occasions the retaining wall gangs
were held up for lack of rock. He
never remembered Mr. Watson complaining of inconvenience from the
retaining wall gangs during the time
the work was progressig. The contractor had the advantage from these
walls that he did not have the danger of rocks rolling over onto private property, as would be the case.
Used Plank
Witness knew that the contractors
used some plank from the roadway.
He saw them use it for wheeling
their barrows on, for prying up cars,
for ties and for covering up shots.
The city kept track of all that lumber
taken from there.
On the point of the relative cost
of taking up the plank roadway and
0 replacing it, witness said it would
cost about a cent and an eighth to
take up and about the same to replace it.
he had on some occasions had
1 trouble Watson's men breaking down
unfinished walls by letting large
stones roll onto it. He told Mr. Watson that he would take it up with
the city  engineer.
Cross-examined by Mr. Williams,
witness said that the retaining wall
gang was generally well ahead of
Watson's men.
John Morgan
John Morgan testified that the
dumping for retaining walls increased the cost of the work. When he
tendered he made no allowance for
retaining walls. Police. protection
during the strike was a farce. No
force was used by tbe police. Mr.
Phillipson told him he was instructed not to use force. On the point
of taking up and relaying plank
roadways witness put the cost of taking up and relaying as 1 is to 2.
Overhaul was regarded as objectionable   to   contractors.     If   they
knew there was to be overhaul they
would have made allowance for It.
Police's Part
A. J. Phillipson had been sergeant
of police and acting chief at the time
of the strike. There were about
five  or six men on the city force
at the start of the strike. The contractors were continually calling
upon him for constables. He sent
out the men as he could. About
every half hour Kelly and Watson
were urging by phone for protection.
With a force such as he had all he
could do was to advise the leader
of the strikers to desist from rough
work. If they hoped to win they
should behave themselves. It was
up to him to keep the expenses down
for the city. Anyone would know
that a man with six men could not
handle 200 or 300 men.
After the arrest of Gosden, Chief
Vickers took charge. The force was
increased and the strike ended. The
citizens practically said they would
assist and did so. At the time of
the fight at Kelly's Cut the citizens
took part and were sworn in as specials.
Tried to Keep Peace
Mayor Manson and Mr. Kirkpatrick instructed him to do all he
could to keep peace. He phoned to
the mayor all the time telling him
how the situation was.
Cross-examined by Mr. Peters,
witness said that McCarvell was chief
of police for about three weeks after
he went on the force. He was not
sure that McCarvell was on duty or
on his holidays at the start of the
strike. The force was quite adequate
for the needs of the city before the
strike. In the early days he did
not believe it would come to blows.
He thought the policy pursued was
the best.
Gosden was arrested because he
was regarded as the ring leader. He
had advised using force and was arrested. This was on March 24. On
March 26 Chief Vickers took charge.
Change of Heads
Mr. Peters wanted to know if he
would say that from the time Chief
Vickers took charge anything was
left undone that shouul have been
done.
Witness said he could not. Chief
Vickers as organizer of the forces
had broken the strike.
Mr. Peters went on to question
witness along this line, when an interrogation from His Lordship lead
to a discussion of the point. Mr.
Peters was contending that while the
strikers did not do anything against
the law the police could not do anything. They saw that no harm was
done to any one or to property.
"The city did not do that," suggested His Lordship.
"Your Lordship has not heard the
evidence on that point yet," returned
Mr.  Peters.
Continuing, Mr. Peter3 proceeded
to show that if men wanted to refrain
from work a city could not force
them to work. All that could be
done was to see that property was
protected.
Duty of City
"The city has a duty to protect a
man in the discharge of his duty,"
suggested His Lordship. He added:
"I do not say that the course the
city took was not the very best in
the long run," but he did object to
deducting from contractors for the
time lost during the strike.
"I have not defined my position
on that point," said Mr. Peters, who
wished His Lordship to keep in mind
open on it.
His Lordship said he certainly
would.
Continuing the examination of Mr.
Phillipson, witness said he was present at the fight. The police did
their duty well. A stop was put
to the strike then.
Mr. Williams said he wanted to
make a statement, and prepared to
go into the witness box.
His Lordship said this was a very
bad practice but it was open to him
to do as he liked.
Finally, Mr. Williams decided not
to do it.
City's Side Outlined
Mr. Peters in opening the case on
behalf of the city outlined the course
of his defense. He could quite see
that His Lordship had an idea that
the city had not treated the contrac-
*or as fairly as he should have been
treated. The city, however, had
treated these contractors absolutely
fairly. It was felt that an independent decision should be got rather
than go on with constant bickerings.
Liquidated damages, he felt, were
collectable. It was quite impossible
to estimate the loss to the city from
any street not being completed In a
certain time. The city represented
the individual citizens. As far as
this town was concerned, citizens had
suffered very heavy loss by delay.
That could not come In because there
was this clause for liquodated damages. There were two classes in this
city, one which said these contractors should be kept up to the terms
of their agreement. The other was
not so particular, and said let these
men have all the time they like. It
was impossible to show that there
was any loss to the corporation as a
corporation from the loss of time.
There was a very heavy loss to the
citizens, who had to put up the money
to pay this. The city proposed to
test this in the court.
No Matter as to Cause
With regard tj the strike, which
lasted six weeks, he did not care
what the cause was.
His Lordship said he was not a
board of conciliation and that he
would not consider the cause of the
strike.
Mr. Peters, continuing, said that
Mr, Smith, the acting mayor in the
early stages of the strike, asked these
contractors not to go on with the
work, and agreed to allow them day
for day on the time lost. He would
not say what authority Mr. Smith
had to promise this.
His Lordship wanted to know if
such a statement were made by Mr.
Smith, why did the city withhold
for loss of the time.
Difference of Opinion
His Lordship said that the decision
of the privy council was that where
there were two parties to carrying
out a work and one party by any act
on its own part interfered with the
other party carrying out its work the
time should not be held against that
party.
Mr. Peters contended that the rule
did not apply in this case.
His Lordship thought the city
should withdraw its claim on that
part and not put the court to the
trouble of deciding.
Mr. Peters said tiiat he would
look into this and make a statement
later. '
The city engineer had all along
taken the stand that any reduction
or any extension of time were not
wi'hiu his power to make. He had
heard from time to time made recommendations to his principals, the
City Council.
He wanted to eradicate the idea
that the city wanted to treat these
contractors unfairly.
After outlining the line of argument on some other points, Mr.
Peters said he would call his witnesses.
An early adjournment was taken,
however, to allow His Lordship to
visit the place. No witnesses for the
city have yet been examined. Court
will resume in Melntyre Hall this
morning.

the other two, marked for 6,600

more could be dumped. The wagons
marked for the low number of

smaller than the large one. While
not as deep, they proved to be longer.

the city received its full complement
of coal, and so expressed themselves.

Drill under special contract, and in
charge of competent management. It
is expected that the proceeds from
this first block of stock will be sufficient to put down at least three or
more boreholes of 1,000 feet each.
This will undoubtedly cut one or two
seams of splendid coal—then see
your stock jump. Satisfactory tenders have been accepted and a contract let to the Diamond Drill Contracting Company of Spokane, Wash.,
for the boring and drilling operations. As an emergency, and to be
absolutely on the safe side, a further
block of 100,000 shares of treasury
stock will be offered at 25c per share,
5c on application and 5c per month
until paid, as soon as the first block
has all been subscribed.
Now, use your own judgment, but
consider carefully what your chances
are of making $85.00 on an investment of $15.00 in six months, or
$1,000 on an investment of $160.00,
for as sure as the sun rises and sets
this stock will go to $1.00 at least as
soon as the drill cuts through the
seams of splendid coal that are surely
there, according to all experts' reports of the highest obtainable authority, who have reported on the Queen
Charlotte Islands coal measures as
follows: T. R. Marshall, F.C.S., 1902;
Dr.    George    M.     Dawson,    D. S.,
A.R.A.R.S.M., F.G.S., 1878; H. E.
Parrish, John J. Langdale, 1867;
James Deans, 1872; James Parkinson, 1888; R. W. Ellis, 1906; T. B.
Cory, of the State of Washington,
U. S. A., and our own expert, C. F. J.
Galloway, B.Sc, who is among the
best authorities In B. C.
These reports cover first the Wilson-Robinson coal fields, three miles
north of this coal land; second, the
Old Cowgate coal fields, almost adjoining on the west; third, the Alfred
Bay coal fields on the south; and
fourth, the company's own coal, all
of which are positive evidence that
this is one of the best coal fields on
the Queen Charlotte Islands. Situate on Graham Island, Bearskin Bay,
One of the best harbors in the north,
at the gateway of transportation to
all points of the world, and at the
very doors of Queen Charlotte City;
in fact, a portion of this coal underlies the townsite. No railroads to
build—just lead the coal from the
mines to the boats. These are facts
that defy contradiction, and within
five days the Diamond Drill will be
on the ground and in operation. This
is the only way anyone can tell how
many millions of tons of coal there
is in the property.
All applications will be filed In
order received, and only 100,000 will
be sold at 16c.
How many times In your life have
you had a ciiance like this? A square
deal for once at least in a stock
proposition, with almost a certainty
of the stock being worth $1.00 before
you have made your third payment
at 15c. Do not hesitate. Send in
your application today.
For further information call or
write to the head office of the company, 506 Pacific Building, where the
report of C. F. J. Galloway, B.S.C.,
on this coal land can be seen. His
report is all that could be asked,
practically saying that the coal is
there beyond a doubt, with sufficient
evidence In sight to warrant drilling
and development work at once.
Paragraph From Mr. Galloways
Report
"The easiest seam to prove will be
the Cowgitz, as its horizon is known.
I should, therefore, recommend you
to put down a borehole near the eastern end of your easternmost section.
At the point marked C on the map
the position of this seam should be
passed through at a depth of about
500 feet, the Camp Anthracite seam
being probably passed through In the
same hole, if it occurs at all in this
locality."
All promoters' stock is to be pooled
until $200,000 has been raised for
the purpose of developing the mine.
In conclusion, you will have the
satisfaction of knowing that your
money is all goinng into proving the
coal is there, not into the promoters'
pockets nor to pay for a dead horse
of any kind, as the coal leases and
titles are all paid for and clear of
all encumbrances and will always be
a valuable asset. Fill out the application form for any number of
shares you want and address your
application to H. F. McRae & Co.,

CIVIC   QUESTIONS
Ratepayers Association  for  East  End
Have Mayor and City Engineer
Attend Meeting.
The Question of the Sewer and Plank
Roadways Are Considered
at Length
Tbe Ratepayers Association of Sections 5, 6, 7 and 8 met in the Presbyterian Hall on Fourth Avenue and
discussed questions affecting those
sections. By request, Mayor Man-
son and City Engineer Colonel Davis
were present, and took part in the
discussions.
The attendance was very good. The
president of the association, Mr.
Gampp presided.
In his opening address the chairman explained the objects aimed at
by the association. It aimed at creating an increased interest in municipal affairs, especially as they affected that part of the city. They intended, as a result of the intelligent
understanding of the affairs, to
endorse men for municipal offices
whom they thought were suitable to
serve them. The association was
non-political. It was, moreover, the
Intention not to act as critics of the
council, but to act in harmony with
that body. The objects were to educate the residents of the district
along lines municipal.
He called upon the mayor to address the meeting.
Mayor Manson congratulated the
association upon its worthy aim.
Much good could be accomplished
by such a body if it were kept along
proper lines. In some cities, however, there had been a disposition
with such bodies to act as a see-saw
with the council and so fail to accomplish the good intended. In attempting to further the best interests of
that part of the city the association
could do much gooa.
He said that there appears to
have been some misapprehension
with regard to his visit there that
evening. He had not come to speak
As he understood it, he had been invited to be present to confer with
the association on matters which
they might wish to bring up. Later
on, he intended to call a meeting,
when the whole of the citizens could
be present, and hear an account of
what had been accomplished by the
council. It would be useless to go
into municipal matters generally at
this meeting, but he would confine
himself to a consideration of points
the meeting might wish to take up.
The meeting then became more or
less of a general open one in which
subjects were freely discussed.
Among those who took part in the
discussions were W. H. Montgomery,
J. S. Cowper, Mr. Davis, Alderman
Douglas and G. Shaw.
Among the first questions dealt
with was that of the sewer.
In reply to the questions submitted as to what the council proposed
to do in this matter, Mayor Manson
explained that the council bad submitted the best plan that could be
submitted at the time the Hays
Creek sewer was put forward. The
council had incorporated all that
could be done at the present in that
bylaw. The citizens had seen fit to
vote it down. He thought it would
admirable now for the citizens to
offer a solution.
A general discussion as to the
question of the outlet for the sewer
at Hays Creek was then indulged in,
when most of the points raised at
the time of the vote oil the bylaw
were again put forth. The danger
from the standpoint of a nuisance
being created was raised.
The mayor considered that the people to be benefitted most by this
sewer made a grave mistake when
they voted It down. He was afraid
that by the time it came forward
again that the sewer might have to
be constructed as a work of local Improvement. The bylaw had been up
und a feeling might be aroused In
parts where the sewer was not going
to be of any benefit that If the people
most benefitted did not want this
they were not going to exert themselves to pass it against the wish
of those to be served by it.
Another vexed feature of the bylaw as to its outlet was brought up.
The mayor explained that the
G. T. P, had no objections when the
agreement was up with that company to allow the right to cross their
property with sewers, but they wanted these referred to their engineers,
naturally. The plans for the sewer
and its temporary ending had been
argued upon between Colonel Davis
and Mr. Kelliher of the G. T, P.
Mr. Cowper seemed to think the
G. T. P. was not. to be trusted very
far. He thought there should be a
definite agreement with the G. T, P.
on  this  point  before  anything  was
done.
The mayor pointed out that this
could not be done for possibly
twelve months, until the plans of the
company should be advanced to the
point where a definite emptying
place could be given. The city had
either to wait until the company's
plans had been advanced sufficiently
to all them giving that information
or else it could adopt the plans set
forth  in  the bylaw.
He advised tbe association to give
the subject further consideration,
and he would be glad to get their
views. If they would give a memorandum of what they considered
proper he would assure them that
it would be brought before the board
for consideration.
Colonel Davis also explained the
whole situation. He told of the arrangements for the sewer and the
understanding with Mr. Kelliher of
the G. T. P. The plans as submitted
represented the best thought that
could be given to it.
On the matter of plank roads
Mayor Manson was asked for an explanation of the difficulty now experienced in getting the work done.
He explained that until the sale
of debentures the bank was carrying
this work. The council could not
proceed recklessly and grant all work
applied for or its credit would be
impaired. The city had to dispose
of a part of these debentures to pay
off the obligations before it would
be wise to incur further obligations.
The first payments on this sale of
debentures would be on May 31,
which would enable the city to pay
off the banks and then the city would
be in a position to arrange for new
works of this kind. In the meantime the city council had to adopt
the rule that those seeking a local
improvement of this kind would
have to make an offer for the debentures, thus relieving them of any
financial obligation. He could not
see how they cohuld well relax from
this rule.
It was urged from the meeting
that Section Two was now about to
seek local improvements.
The mayor thought that if the
owners of lots in Section Two wanted
these improvements suggested they
would have to follow the general
rule and take care of the debentures.
Probably later in the spring relief
might be found from this rule.
On tbe question of the purity of
Morse Creek water, which will be
ready for use shortly, Colonel Davis
was asked to explain. He said that
the water was just the same as that
taken from Hays Creek. He felt that
it would be all right for the winter.
Next summer, it would be possible,
he thought, to have the work far
enough advanced to be able to move
the pump out to Shawatlans and supply water temporarily from this.
Every precaution, Colonel Davis
said, would be taken to see that the
water provided was kept in good condition.
The meeting closed with votes of
thanks  to   the  mayor  and   Colonel
Davis for attendance at the meeting.

police last night and called upon
this morning to give an account of
themselves were warned by the police magistrate to go to their homes
