Put Where   They Cannot  Toftn   Advantage of Other Menls Labor.
Opinions  of Ihe Magistrates Who Tried
tho CllAO.
The inquiry into the action of
of Bwen Morrison and H. Cum-
mings in locating a claim palled
the Pacific over the Homeatake,
yi'hich wns commenced on the 28th
ult. hefore Justices Newton and
Topping, was continued from day
to day and a conclusion reached
on Monday of this-. " - The case
was ably prosecuted" tiy Attorneys
Campbell, of Vancouver, and
Allan, of Spokane, and defended
by Barrigter J. ti. Clute. Though,
8.8 Mr, Campbell remarked, it is
very difficult to make a conspiracy
case ".stick," they have succeeded
in milking it stick long enough to
jand the defendants in gaol, and a
wholesome lesson has been taught,
even if their term of prison life
should be short. Each of the Justices wrote his opinion, and though
looking into the matter in a somewhat different light, they arrived
at the same conclusion—a conclusion that meets the approval of
pearly every person in Rossland.
JUSTICE TOPPING 9 OPINION.
Rossland, Dec. 2nd, 1895.
After considering the evidence
in this case carefully, I have come
to the following conclusions:
That there was concerted action
jn locating over the Homestake
mineral claim. That there was
poncerted action in trying to sell
(it high figures, they having performed no work on the claim, evidently selling the Homestake company's development. It appears
from the defendants' testimony
that they are making a business,
not of legitimate prospecting, but
in trying to find weak points in
claim titles, and then locating over
those that are weak, with no regard to anyone's rights.' Their
own evidence show that the defendants have been the most apjn
operators in their peculiar line, one
owning to the fact that he has five
claims located over other claims.
This practice has become such a
bane in this camp that it has nearly paralyzed the sale of mines, and
public opinion, outside of the
• jumping element, has become
unanimous that all legitimate
means should be used to check it.
The defendants have given no
evidence to show that they have
taken a legitimate location, and
though the law in regard to conspiracy is indefinite yet sufficient
evidence has heen advanced to
make me believe that the case
should be taken higher.
Therefore I decide that the defendants shall stand committed for
trial before the next court of competent jurisdiction.
B. S. Torr-iNG, J.P.
justice nbwton's opinion.
This is an important case, because, as far as I know, it raises
the question whether the staking
of one claim over another can he
held to he a criminal, and not a
civil offence.
I will say, at the outset, that I
think a mistake has been made in
commencing these proceedings by
criminal process; if a civil suit had
been brought for damages, and had
been sustained by the Courts, the
prosecution would have been in a
better position to have enforced a
criminal charge, because the evidence which must have been adduced to win the civil suit must
have settled quite definitely the
Validity or otherwise of the several
claims now in question.
In this country the presence of
a Gold Commissioner before whom
such a case of civil trespass, could
lie brought at a few hours' notice,
and the frequent visits of the
County Court Judge, render it
perfectly easy to prove the validity
of claim and get the trespasser
Misted, and in the present case if
this had heeh done, the Homestake
dttiierS   could   have   dispossessed
the trespassers and have had the title
to their claim definitely and clearly recognized by the Courts of the
Province. And in this way they
could have conserved the value of
their property and have taught
junipers a salutory, necessary
lesson.
I suppose it will he admitted on
all sides that the act charged
against the defendants would not
have been criminal if done by each
or either separately for himself.
The criminality is said to consist
in the conspiracy or agreement of
the two defendants: (1) to commit
an unlawful act, namely, to extort
money by (2) ilie false pretence
that the claims held by the plaintiffs, the Homestake and the Atlantic, were not legally valid.
This at, once raises-, the. question
as to whether the plaintiffs' interests in these claims is valid or not;
because if they are not legal, then
no offence, either civil or criminal,
has been committed,
From the'evidenep before trie,, 1
am of the opinion that the Home-
stake and the Atlantic are legally
held by the plaintiffs, though I
think that further evidence of an
independent kind would have to
be forthcoming before any higher
Court would pronounce the title to
be uerfec.tly sound.
That being my judgment, it is
clear to me that a very grave civil
wrong, at all events, has been coin-
mil ted by the defendants.
But if conspiracy consists in the
agreement of two or more persons
by unlawful means to do either a
lawful or unlawful act; if the gist
of ihe offence of conspiracy is the
unlawful agreement; if the fraudulent combination of two persons is
criminal, even when nothing but a
civil wrong may be inflicted, then
no doubt the graver charge is raised against the defendants.
Such, an agreement to defraud
need not be on paper or parchment,
but is deducible from any criminal
acts of the parties accused, done in
pursuance of an apparent criminal purpose in common between
them.
On this 1 think that the relations
existing between the defendants,
their intimacy or acquaintanceship1, the fact that defendant
Ciuumings came to Rossland to
join the defendant Morrison, the
fact that they live together, the
fact that defendant M> rrison expects that defendant Cummings
will treat him according to the
custom of the country and give
him iv half share in the Pacific
claim, all point to the conclusion
that there is a well understood
agreement between them in reference to all their joint transactions,
and that this must be taken to include any unlawful, as well as any
lawful, acts which they together
committed.
Defendant Morrison states that
he acted under the Mineral Acts,
and if so he must in my judgment
have been aware that the Home-,
stake was a legal claim; the same
evidence was open to him which
has sufficed to convince me of the
fact; indeed, if the evidence of the
witnesses Burke and Stevenson is
truthful, and I see no reason for
doubting it, the defendants had
even a better reason for knowing
that the Atlantic also is a valid
location, as he has seen the stakes
and the Court has not.
It follows in my judgment that
an unlawful act was together committed hy these defendants in
locating the Pacific claim, but
whether they had the unlawful intention to defraud the plaintiffs is
not so clear to me, though I incline
to think they had this intent.
I am not a lawyer, and can only
look at the matter in a common-
sense way, and I do not wish it to
he assumed that I think that every
man who re-locates ground already
covered by stakes is to be condemned as a jumper. I take jumping
to be the Unwarrantable location,
without colorable reason for doing
So, of a claim already legally held;
and if a fraudulent motive is also
apparent the lav; ought to be strong
enough to reach the offender, whether he be one man or a conspiracy
of more than one. The interference
with vested rights which such an
act involves is a menace to the
whole mining community, and I
c/tn only hope that the provisions
of the laws of British Columbia will
apply to such cases, not in Ihe
least, however, in deference to any
expression of public opinion or
sentiment on the subject, but for
the vindication of the law, and that
only.
I think that this is,a pase in
which, even if this Court had jurisdiction to settle it, it would be advisable to decline that jurisdiction
and refer the matter to a higher
tribunal. But when, as in this
case, it becomes a question either
of dismissing the defendants or of
committing them for trial, I think
the preponderance of evidence submitted to the Court makes it the
duty of the Court to say that a
prima facie case has been made out
for further investigation.
I may be wrong in my law, but
if so the Attorney-General of this
Province is the officer to correct
me, and I must let, it rest with him
to say whether the Government
will prosecute this case further or
order the defendants to be dismissed. The question of conspiracy, which is the whole gist of
the matter, is one of the most dillicult in judicial practice, and I do
not feel called upon to decide
whether such a conspiracy actually
existed or not; but enough evidence
has been adduced to give color to
the information which hag been
laid, and the order of the Court,
therefore, is that the defendants be
committed to take their trial at the
next court of' competent jurisdiction,

UoL.slund  Police Court.
Tuesday.—Before Mr. New torn, J.P.
Louis Martin, arrested on Sunday
by Constable Hooson for carrying
concealed weapons, was fined $25
and costs and forfeited the revolver.
The case was strongly pressed by
the police, as the carrying of concealed weapons is a most reprehensible and dangerous practice, and
will not be tolerated here.
John Kennedy, who had been arrested at Trail by Officer Hooson
on the previous day, was charged
with being unlawfully in possession
of a stolen coat and vest, the property of Mike Clancy. This being a
case requiring two magistrates on
the henoh, it was adjourned until
the attendance of another J.P. can
lie obtained. We must once more
urge upon the proper authorities
the great need there is of appointing
a stipendiary magistrate for Rossland, as such delays are frequent,
and are very annoying to witnesses
and all others concerned.

Sleeting of Citizen* and  Censure of the
Education Department.
At a public meeting in the Meth-
odist church on Monday evening
last and after the election of Geo. N.
Taylor as chairman and D. I). Birks
as secretary, the following motions
were put and carried:
1. That a committee of five, of
whom the teacher shall he one, be
appointed, to secure a room for
school purposes, and to make al1
arrangements for the re-opening oi
the school at the earliest possible
time.—Appointed fortius committee, Messrs. Reddin, Jackson, Bag-
land, Merrill and Birks.
2. That a committee of five be
appointed with full power to act,
in conjunction with the trustees, to
secure the necessary legislation, in
order that Rossland may immediately he provided with proper
school facilities.—The members of
this committee are Messrs. Geo. N.
Taylor, C. O'Brien Reddin, W. D.
Pratt, Lane and Jackson.
3. That a committee of three he
appointed to draw up a set of resolutions, censuring the Government
for its neglect of Rossland in
school matters.—Committee composed of Messrs. Reddin, Jackson
and Pratt.
4. That the thanks of the citizens be tendered to Rev. Mr. Gee
and his congregation for the use of
the church for school purposes during the past three months.
THE COMMITTEE'S RESOLUTIONS.
Whereas, the town of Rossland
has a population exceeding 2.000
and a school population of 120, of
whom 98 are on the rolls of the
public school; and
Whereas, Rossland has no school
building and the Department of
Education has dallied with the
question of furnishing suitable
school facilities; first, by providing
a sum utterly inadequate to erect a
structure large enough, and then
by calling for tenders for a building, well knowing that the construction of the same involved a
sum greatly in excess of that provided; and
Whereas, the attention of the
Department of Education has been
repeatedly drawn to this scandalous state of affairs by the Board of
Trustees of the Rossland Public
School without any redress of these
grievances being obtained; and
Whereas, Rossland has contributed to the Provincial revenue
$20,000 during the past nine
months, of which but a fraction
has been expended in this district;
and
Whereas, the citizens, in addition
to paying these taxes, have been
compelled to raise by popular subscription the funds required to pay
rent for a temporary school building; and
Whereas, the education of the
children has been greatly retarded
by these temporary makeshifts and
expedients; and
Whereas; the existing state of
affairs was known to the Department of Education through a personal visit of inspection by the
Minister of Education, Hon, Col.
Baker.
Therefore, be it resolved by the
people of Rossland, through the
undersigned committee, appointed
at a mass meeting held Monday
evening, December 2nd, to prepare
these resolutions; that the Minister
of Education, Hon. Col. Baker, is
deserving of a severe censure and
he is hereby censured by the people
of Rossland.
And be it further resolved, that
a copy of these resolutions be sent
to the Lieutenant-Governor in
Council, and furnished the Press
for publication.

U:- that he has drafted a bill dealing
with the question of claim jumping
in a comprehensive manner. The
l>ill is to be submitted to the Legislature at the forthcoming session,
and there can lie very little doubt
but what it will receive the attention at the hands of the legislator*
which it deserves. The bill is. tq
be made retroactive, so as to in.-,

Another provision of the gill will
he—that upon satisfactory raiilence
hefore the courts thaf a/ pittim-.
holder does not possess a valid
title, and in the event of the claim
being declared forfeited, it shall not
be open for re-location by any free
miner, but shall be sold by public
auction, after due notice has beerj
given. Mr. Kellie will do his ut;
most to put an end to claini-jurpp;
mg, not only in his own district,
but in every mining camp in the
province. He hopes to visit Rossland shortly, in companv with the
Premier (Hon. J. H. Turner) or
the Chief Commissioner of Lands
and Works (Hon. G. B. Martin),
when our readers will have an opportunity of hearing Mr. Kellie's
views on the subject and mining
men wiil he able to discuss any
grievances they may have, with a
full confidence that the hon. mem-
ber for the North Riding of West
Kootenay will he fully in accord
with them, as he is a miner himself.

WOB.K FOB THE LEGISLATURE.
The Justices' Court has done very
well in checking claim-jumping,
but the duty of preventing it entirely, as was pointed out in these
columns last week, lies with the
Legislature and the Courts. So long
as the mining law is capable of
being interpreted in various ways
and so long as one County Court
holds that the law means what it
says and another County Court
holds that it means something
else, disputes will arise and there
will be more or less claim-jumping.
ALTOGETHER WRONG.
The Nelson Tribune has a pcn-
phant for twisting facts so as to
make them suitable weapons of
attack or defence — a rigorous
."write-down" or a vigorous '"write-
up,'-' as the case may be. It has in
some mysterious manner gauged
the wipKp8 &ud desires of the people of Rossland with regard to the
Water franchise, and says:
"The people of Rossland believe
these franchises are very valuable,
and that they should not be allowed
to pass into the hands of private
parties. * * * The people of
Rossland would rather see the town
without waterworks than have the
Works put in by private capital."
The Tribune is altogether wrong
Jn its inference. The people of
Rossland were so eager to obtain a
water supply that there was great
danger of their surrendering more
THAN WAS WISE lllld MORE THAN WAS
necessary, and a few older heads
who had had experience of water
Companies1 monopoly (probably at
Nelson) sounded a note of warning
before it was too late to prevent the
people of Rossland from hoisting
an "Old Man of the Sea" upon
fheir shoulders.
The Tribune says these franchises
are of no value. That may be the
Case in a small town like Nelson
(and no one should be in a better
position to know than the editor of
the Tribune), nut here, in a town
that will be the home of ten thousand people within two years, such
a franchise will be a most valuable
One—hence the eagerness of more
than one syndicate to obtain it.
We never stated that the people of
Rossland were averse tp a private
company putting in a water system. What we did say was that
the future of this coming city must
be safeguarded against anytbitig in
the shape of a monopoly.
AN OPEN CONFESSION,
The Prospector, although it is
two years and a half since it began
to investigate the mineral resources
of Kootenay, does not pretend to
be other than a tenderfoot. It is
not even familiar with all the
•'ites," names and phrases used
in the mining country. It doe?
not abuse the courtesies sometimes
extended to it by telling all about
the flaws, "horses" and other objectionable features in mines, a
knowledge of which it obtains by
reason of these courtesies. It regards private property as under
the control of its owners and that
they alone should be the judge of
the proper time and place for the
publishing of more or less detailed
descriptions of it. It is not required, neither is it within 'be province of a newspaper, to go into all
the little details of a mine; to tell
just where the vein "breaks off"
or just how low grade the ore is in
the bottom of this or that shaft, or
just at what point this or that
chute "pinches" out. It is better
that a newspaper content itself
with references to well-known facts
regarding properties. It may well
direct special attention to the outputs and the value of shipments
and the amount of dividends. It
is, after all, the output and the
dividends that attract capital, and
until a camp has a record of these
to show its growth will be slow,
It is then with accounts of the outputs and the dividends, rather
than with matters of minor importance and doubtful propriety, that
the Prospector hopes to interest
its readers, meet the approval of
mine owners and business men,
and attract the attention of capitalists, who may find here good
investments and who may give
employment to hundreds and per-
baps thousands of workingmen.
A PRIVILEGED CHARACTER.
The Nelson Tribune indulged
last week in one of its periodical
boomerang jamborees, striking at
everything in sight and recoiling
with an ache in its corporosity
like that experienced by the unwary pedestrian who kicks a hat
that conceals a brickbat. After
assailing various institutions in
Kootenay, Victoria and Spokane,
it turns upon the newspapers of
Kootenay and is frantic because it
cannot wipe nine of them out of
existence, leaving only two. Whether the Tribune cherishes suicidal
thoughts along with tl)e assassination that it would visit upon its
contemporaries is not clear, hut as
there were two newspapers—the
Revelstoke Mail (under another
name) and the Nelson Miner—established in Kootenay before the
birth of the Tribune, it is fair to
infer that along with its other
hallucinations it is lifllicted with
the mania of self destruction. The
Tribune should not take such a
melancholy view of the situation,
nor judge other people's business
hy its own confessedly depleted
coffers, If the Tribune editor
feels an aching void in the place
where dyspepsia is generated and
has no meal ticket among his assets we will share ours with him
if he choose to visit Rossland.
COLONEL RAKER ROASTED,
The meeting of citizens of Rossland on Monday evening was in
no sense a political one. There
were, perhaps, as many friends of
the Government as of the Opiinpi"
tion present; but all agreed that
the Government has been grievously at fault in the lack of attention
which it has given to the needs of
Rossland, Tfie meeting was for
the purpose of considering school
matters, and was face to face with
the fact that with more than one
hundred—about one hundred and
thirty—children of school age in
Rossland, there is no school house
and no prospect of any for the
next six months; and also that the
building that has been loaned
for school purposes is too cold for
use in wintry weather. Temporary measures, as reported in our
news columns, were adopted for
continuing the school, hut not until after a number of those present
had forcibly expressed opinions
ihat were not flattering to the Government. One speaker, in particular, said that he had paid poll tax
and other taxes in the Province
for seven years, and that now the
first year his child was old enough
to attend school, he will, if the
school is continued, have to contribute toward paying rent for a
building in which to 'hold it. He
voiced the sentiment of the meeting when he said that there was
no complajpt against the trustees
of the school, and passing over the
members of the Department of
Education, he charged the delinquency home to Col. James Baker,
who in his dual capacity of Minister of Mines and Minister of Education, is in a position to know and
does know the great need of a
school house in Rossland. Others
present referred to the excuses
made by Col. Baker, "that it was
not considered in the estimates,"
an argument too fragile to resist a
touch when set alongside of the fact
that the Government also received
a large revenue from Rossland
that was "not considered in the
estimates."
The people of Rossland are becoming more and more resentful of
the ill-usage which they are receiving, and the roasting of Col, Baker
on this occasion is but a prelude
to what may follow if the Government continues the policy of ignoring our grievances.

Printing in all its branches is as
much of an art in Rossland as it is
in Spokane, Vancouver, or other
cities further afield. It will pay
the business men of this city to have
their printing done at home, and
save the time, trouble and expense
of sending outside for it. The fostering of home industries is and always
WAS
the best way to build up a city,
and it is to be hoped our merchants
and others requiring anything in
the printing line wili see this. We
can supply cards, tickets, letterheads, statements, bill-heads, envelopes, dodgers, posters, bills of
lading, bills of fare, menus, ball

THINGS   IN   GKNKliAL.
[BY  DIOGENES.]
A very beautiful effect was witnessed by those who were fortunate
enough to be outdoors last Sunday
evening about 6.30. The clay had
teen grand—the sun shining in a
cloudless sky, the pure snow glittering on the face of Mother Earth,
and the dark green branches of
cedar, spruce and hemlock drooping with the weight of snow which
they seemed loth to shake off. As
the sun bade adieu to such a scene
of beauty, the Queen (if Night rose
up from behind the hills and shed
a paler lustre over the landscape.
Soon afterwards she seemed to be
floating in a sea of opal and then a
mass of fleecy clouds became visible. But the beautiful effect 1
speak of, was a double circle or
two rings around the moon, both
of them of rainbow colors, and
both the same width of an ordinary rainbow. It was supposed
to predict a storm of some sort.
but it has not struck here yet.
Mr. J. S. Clute raised an objection, in the claim-jumping case last
week, to the presence of American
lawyers on behalf of the prosecution. He did not so much mind
their appearing for the defence, bui
'.' was an unheard-of thing that they
should prosecute British subjects
whose liberty was at stake." Mr.
plute should congratulate himsell
that he is a citizen of a count n
whose laws are so liberal as to per-
vmit lawyers of other nationalities
to plead in its courts—a privilege,
I believe, which is accorded uridei
no other Hag except the British.
The British people have been called
insular and proud, but they lead
the world in the liberality of their
laws and the broadness of their
institutions.
Some chump of the narrow-
minded school—which seems to be
graduating tjuite a number of thin-
skkined nincompoops just now—
writing in the Spokane Chronicle,
Says there is a Salvation Army
sign in that town which irritates
the super-sensitive souls of all free-
born Americans. The sign bears
the legend " Pacific Province Headquarters," which, the thin-skinned
chump says, " may sound all right
in British Columbia, but they grate
on the sensitive ears of the people
of Spokane." "Ha, ha!" laugh
my American friends when shown
this effusion of rot and nonsense,
and several of them mutter a monosyllable which sounds something
like "daniphool!" We in Rossland do not allow the American
names of our streets to grate on our
sensitive ears; in fact, we are
making Spokane street and Washington street two of the best in the
town. And when our American
postmaster paid no attention to the
Canadian national holiday, but
closed the post-otlice on the 4th of
July, our sensitive ears didn't grate
a bit, nor were our patriotic souls
bursting with indignation. It is
time, however, that the United
States looked more closely after the
imbeciles among its population.
The Nelson papers never seem to
weary of "pitching into" P.O. Inspector Fletcher, who, by the way,
is a pretty good sort of fellow when
you are acquainted with him. Now
it is most absurd to charge all the
shortcomings of the postal system
in Kootenay to his account. An
instance has just come under my
notice which, had the editor of the
Nelson Tribune been the victim,
would probably result in another
bitter attack on Mr. Fletcher. A
letter which was written in Kaslo
on the 24th of March last reached
the person it was intended for last
Wednesday. The gentleman in
question was a resident of Revelstoke during March and April, and
had he received the letter then the
whole course of his life since would
have been on different lines. The
Kaslo postmark is very faint, but
the figures "26" are plainly to be
seen. If the month was also visible
one could tell whether the fault lay
with the Kaslo or the Revelstoke
otlice, the date of the latter being
Nov. 27, '95. Now here's a " letter
that never came" when it was
anxiously expected, but when its
utility is a forgotten dream and of
no account to the sender or the receiver, it turns up! But how can
we connect Mr. Fletcher with such
ti miscarriage?
Nights of Kiu'.hiintihcnt.
For three nights this week Prof,
and Miss Ida Lewis have drawn
iargc audiences to the Opera House.
Ihe entertainment is unique in
character, the professor being a
whole programme in himself, while
Miss Lewis is a very pretty and
valuable aid. In feats of juggling
Prof. Lewis is not to be surpassed,
his really clever specialties eliciting
repeated applause. Full houses
everywhere is proof of a good entertainment, and this is usual with
Professor Lewis' show.

The masquerade ball to ho given
in the Opera House on Tuesday
evening next promises to be a first-

hand. Ladies in costume will be
admitted free, gentlemen $1, and
spectators 50c.
