The annual meeting of the
Conservative Party, held in
the Institute Hall, on Wed-.
nesday night, dealt success-
ly with the important business which
lermined the control of the local organ-
ition for the ensuing year, or, at any
;e, until the next meeting. It is pro-
tie that the year will be considerably
tailed in pursuance of a resolution car-
\d unanimously which favours holding it
;her in the winter than in the summer.
iere are many advantages in the proved change, the chief of which are that
will be possible to get a much larger
d more representative gathering, and
it if it is held while the House is in
sion the platform can be made more
ractive by inviting up-country members
attend. A glance at the officers and
nniittee chosen is sufficient to show that
excellent selection was made, and that
fery section of the Party is well repre-
lited; the most gratifying feature be-
»the substantial representation of neAV-
mers by the election of Messrs. Fuller-
1, Perry and Dean. These are three of
e * most industrious and consistent
rkers in the Party, and their election
ould not merely strengthen the organ-
ition but consolidate the Conservative
te. In Mr. R. F. Green, the new presi-
nt, the association has done honour to a
m who has served the Party in a Min-
erial position and who, as The Week has
iquently pointed out, was one of the
>st capable and hard-working Ministers
10 has ever held office in British Ool-
lbia. ■ In addition Mr. Green is a life-
ig politician and an expert organizer,
is special ability in this direction has
raght him to the front in the Provincial
sociation, of whicli he is first Vice-
esident, and of which, in the natural
ler of things, he will be president next
ar. That the election of Mr. Green tp
important position of president of the
;al association was desired hy the Party,
evidenced by the predominating vote
lich he received. Of the Vice-Presidents
is impossible to speak too highly.
essrs. Bishop, Lewis and Leeson are
sily the three most conspicuous workers
the rank and file of the Party, and are
titled to any honours which it has to
er. Of Mr. Price, the Secretary, and
r. Tait, the Treasurer, it is unnecessary
speak; they possess the unbounded
nfidence of every Conservative in Vic-
ia, and have earned that confidence by
3-long devotion to the cause. Altogether
mservatism in the Capital City may well
successful, it,could hardly be otherwise
th such a powerful organization and
ch capable officers. It would, however,
a mistake to lose sight of the fact that
3 Party derives its strength, not merely
nn the principles whicli it advocates, and
excellent organization which it has
Jed into existence, but to the successful
'eminent which it has installed at James
ly. If Premier McBride and his col-
Igues had failed to "make good," the
ist perfect organization would not have
Hired the continued success of the
ty. They have more than made good,
that it is an easy thing for a Conserva-
'e in the Province* of British Columbia
wear "a smile tliat will not come off."
It is to a sound, good, business-like administration, and a progressive programme
that the Conservative Party rallies, and as
long as the present standard is maintained
it will continue to celebrate repeated victories. Both Captain Tatlow and Mr.
Fulton spoke in affectionate terms of Premier McBride, who has succeeded in endearing himself to his colleagues, as much
by his personal qualities as by his political
success. jNo doubt they had in mind his
recent bereavement, which, as those near
to him know, touched him very deeply,
but Premier McBride is not a man to
sacrifice the public interest to personal
considerations, and he has kept the harness
on, and is still working as strenuously as
if he did not require that long looked-for
holiday which his best friends hope he
will shortly take. Of one thing he may
rest assured that he enjoys the undiminished confidence, and will have the united
support of a Party which is as appreciative
of his services as it is determined to sustain his administration.
The important deliverance
Dog in the 0f }/[Y_ Tatlow at the an-
Manger. nual meeting of the Con
servative Association on the
subject of the Songhees Reserve, should
be read by every British Columbian,
not only because it is a complete
recital of the facts but because Captain Tatlow is a man who knows nothing of diplomatic phraseology, who always
speaks straight out, and who is incapable
of distorting or misrepresenting anything
within his knowledge. His verdict is that
the Provincial Government has done everything in its power to bring about a settlement; that it has removed specific difficulties by its Act of 1907, which defined
the rights of the City as well as of the
Province, and left the way clear for the
Dominion Government to act. He declared further that the right of initiative
rests solely at Ottawa, and that whatever
arrangements it might be possible for the
Province or the City to make, they could
not carry anything into effect without the
sanction of the Dominion Government.
His final declaration, after reviewing the
whole subject, was that he was convinced
that the Dominion Government was purposely delaying a settlement in order to
prevent the Provincial Government from
gaining any credit in the matter. If the
latter declaration had been made by some
irresponsible politician it might pass without comment, but as the deliberate, serious
conviction of the Minister of Finance it
is entitled to respect. The Week believes
thai the people of the Province as a whole
will accept the statement of Mr. Tatlow,
at any rate until thc Hon. William Templeman and his colleagues prove, by their
conduct, either that he has mis-stated the
case, or that they have experienced a
change of heart. Meanwhile, the Hon.
William Templeman's organ makes no attempt to disprove the statement that the
Dominion Government acknowledged its
responsibility when the Minister of the
Interior drafted a compulsory measure
during the recent session of Parliament,
which, however, had to be abandoned for
Imperial reasons. The Colonist argues
that the Indians, having no title, can ba
dealt with summarily, and declares that it
stands just where Sir James Douglas
stood fifty years ago, and no doubt if such
a thing were possible it would so so, but
tlie lapse of fifty years, during which the
Indians have enjoyed undisputed possession of the Reserve, is not without its
influence on the question. There has been
too much red tape about this matter altogether and too much "unearthing" of documents which were never hidden; the matter is far simpler than the politicians are
trying to make out. Reduced to its
simplest elements it is that the Indians
can be moved if necessary by compulsion,
that they cannot be moved without compensation, and that the only authority
which can move them is the Dominion
Government. In any event both parties
have a final right of appeal to the Privy
Council, and that appeal would quickly be
reached if the Dominion Government took
the preliminary step of either closing a
■ deal which would be acceptable to the Indians, or forcing the issue. The whole
trouble is, as Captain Tatlow says, that the
only authority whicli could act steadfastly
refuses to do so, except in a manner which
is designed to thwart its apparent purpose.
The Victoria Times states
Taking a ^at British Columbia has
Narrow View,   the only perambulating Law
Courts within the bounds of
the Empire, and Victoria is the only
Capital against which discrimination is
made in the vital matter of education, and
.adds: "The reason for this state of affairs
has never been explained by any of the
loyal Victoria Conservatives when they
meet together to eulogize each other
and their unapproachable, unconquerable
leader, who is the first member for this
city." Perhaps the Times will not accept
the dictum of The Week on such a matter,
or claim that it has any right to speak as
representing loyal Conservatives. There
are, however, a few considerations which
must be obvious to every fair minded man
who approaches a consideration of the subject. Without admitting for a moment the
accuracy of the statement made by the
Times, the latter of which at any rate is
untrue, The Week would point out thut the
mere fact of Victoria being the Capital of
the Province does1 not entitle it to a monopoly of all the favours which a Local
Government has to bestow. The Week has
always stood up for the interests of the
Capital, but it is poor policy to push its
claims beyond a reasonable limit, as will
presently be shown. Victoria is not the
whole Province, and in asserting its own
legitimate claims it has no right to ignore
those of other cities. To do so tends to
weaken and not to strengthen its position.
Does not the Times think that the enlightened policy of Premier Davie, in
establishing the Pai'liamentBuildingshere,
which he only did hy a "tour de force,"
secured for Victoria a permanent advantage which will not be offset by many minor
concessions to Vancouver 2 For instance,
would the Times today be willing to see
the Parliament Buildings removed to the
Terminal City in exchange for a University and the Law Courts in Victoria? If
not, it has little ground of complaint with
respect tu either of the latter. Does the
Times realize that when these arrangements were made the population of Victoria and Vancouver was about equal,
whereas today Victoria claims 40,000 as
against 95,000 in Vancouver proper? Put
it another way, Vancouver Island contains
less than 80,000 people. Vancouver City,
with Richmond and North Vancouver,
must exceed   130,000.     It is  true  that
Victoria is growing, but under the most
favourable conditions is it possible that
Victoria can ever ri-al Vancouver in population? If not, why should we expect to
get ahead of Vancouver in the matter of
all Government Institutions, and why
should we try to make political capital out
of the fact that the Government is even-
handed in its treatment of public works,
and has regard, as it should have, for the
wider interests of the Province rather than
those of any one city. Has the Times ever
figured out the disproportion in the representation of Victoria and district as compared with Vancouver ? The Week touched
on this matter in last issue, and showed
that the former has one member to every
seven thousand inhabitants and the latter
one to every eighteen thousand. JSTo doubt
this is an anomaly which may easily occur
in any Western Province where first one
locality and then another is the subject of
extraordinary development. The Week
believes that in twenty years from now
the population of Vancouver Island will be
at least a million, and that its representation will in consequence be enormously increased, but meanwhile existing conditions
furnish Vancouver with a powerful argument, and would suggest discretion on the
part of Victoria in its treatment of grants
for public • institutions. All this is not
written with any view to depreciate the
importance of the Capital, or to weaken its
legitimate claim for proper recognition in
Government grants and the establishment
of public institutions, but it is also written
with a sense of fairness to the claims of
others and with due recognition of the fact
that a government is bound to consider
every section of the Province, and holds
no special brief for any one city. The
Ministers who spoke on Wednesday had
no difficulty in showing that Victoria has
been well looked after by the McBride
Government, far better than by the Hon.
William Templeman and his friends, although he gained the seat by a fluke at a
by-election purely on the strength of a
portfolio that was to have brought innumerable blessings in its train, but which
was found to be so essentially a "gold
brick" that its purveyor was requested to-
move on at the first opportunity, and according to latest account the electors of
Comox-Atlin are anxious for him to make
another move.
Congratulations to Mr. A.
B.C.E.R. and x. Goward, Manager of the
Jordan River.   B.C.E.R, on having carried
to a successful issue his
negotiations with the city on the subject
of the development of the Jordan River
water power. The Week has repeatedly
urged that the City would be consulting
its best interests by closing this matter
promptly on the terms offered. By accepting them, or delaying their acceptance, it
ran the risk of being served exactly as it
is now being served by the Esquimalt
Waterworks Company, which, after exhausting all its patience in fruitless negotiations, has finally raised the necessary
funds and is embarking upon an outlay
for the extension of its system, which will
effectually checkmate the City. This is
as regrettable as it was unnecessary, ami
no one is to blame but the representatives
of the Council. When thc ratepayers find
that the project of the Esquimalt Waterworks Company, if carried out, will mean
good-bye to cheap water, they will realize
how gross a blunder has been committed.

The New York Times has the following to say of "The Servant in thc
House," which Mr. Henry Miller will
present at the Victoria Theatre on
Thursday, June 24th:
"A play presenting a universal conflict, developing it visibly in powerfully contrasted human figures, yet
revealing with great clearness an
underlying spiritual idea—a play thai
is at once important in its discussion
of ethical idealism as contrasted with
worldly expediency, and a play that
is all these things and is yet an entertainment for the complicated assemblage which goes to the theatre
—this remarkable composite thing Mr.
Charles Rami Kennedy has provided
in 'The Servant in the House,' presented at the Savoy Theatre yesterday afternoon and received with unmistakable evidences of sincere and
general enthusiasm.
"It has been freely hinted that
'The Servant in the House' would
provide a surprise. But it was hardly
to be expected that the surprise woul8
take the nature of such an excellent
piece of dramaturgy, which, while no
doubt of interest because of the daring employed in the development of
its central character—intended to represent the reincarnation of the Son
of Man—has more legitimate values
in a beautifully developed story and
an assemblage of picturesque and
sympathetic characters."

RADIGER & JANION,
Sporting Comment
The race meeting is still the principal sporting topic and nothing but
favourable comment is heard of the
admirable manner in which it is being
conducted. The second week has
passed and still the attendance is not
getting any lower, but on the other
hand has on several days shown an
increase of the corresponding day of
last week. This is very encouraging
and it is confidently expected that the
general public will soon realize that
the races are being run entirely on
the square, and a fair deal given to
every one. This has been shown by
the fact that during the week one
jockey has been sent back to where
he came from for a bad ride, while a
couple of others have enjoyed a few
days' rest as a result of suspensions
for misconduct. Thursday was Ladies'
day and the fair sex showed that they
enjoy the races as much as the sterner
sex as the grand stand was well filled.
This afternoon the Derby will be run
and, judging from the number of entries, it should be one of the best
races of the meeting. Last week I
had occasion to refer to the poor car
service that was being provided. In
this connection a decided improvement has been noticed this week.
Every afternoon four cars leave the
track immediately after the last race,
while another four leave ten minutes
later, being held over at the switch
near the hospital. These cars will,
with few exceptions, carry the crowd
to town, everyone reaching town within half an hour after the last race.
This is a great help to the Country
Club and will no doubt be appreciated.
This afternoon, however, will tax thc
service to the limit, and it is hoped
that as good a service will be given
today as has been given throughout
the week.

The Tecumseh lacrosse team leave
Toronto tomorrow for New Westminster, where the players will make a
determined effort to lift the Minto
Cup which has been resting on the
banks of the Fraser river since last
summer. This is the second series,
in which the Royals of Westminster
will have to engage in this season. Already they have met and defeated
the Regina team by a large margin
and I confidently expect that the
Easterners wil! have to return home
once more with the same tale to tell.
The Vancouver team made a determined effort to win their first game

from New Westminster last Saturday,
but after a couple of fights had taken
place the game went to Westminster.
The Vancouver Club has gathered together a fair bunch of players, but
they will have to go some if they
expect to beat the players from the
Royal City, even if the latter team
is composed of home brews and the
others are mostly imported men.

A sporting event that is attracting
considerable attention is the ten-mile
Marathon race that will take place
this afternoon. Entries have been received from many outside points and
it will be interesting to see what
showing the local men will make
against their visiting opponents. The
race will start and finish at the corner of Yatea and Douglas Street and
will no doubt attract a good crowd.

The local baseballers attached two
more victories to the list last week
when they took two games from the
Cubs of Seattle. The visiting team
came over with a reputation of being-
fast players, but they went home realizing that the Victoria team was just
a little bit faster. The locals are now
in good shape for playing and the
next games should be well worth witnessing. UMPIRE.

The Bowling Club.
Saturday one of the most popular
if not important events in the way of
sports or pastimes that Victoria has
ever witnessed, occurred, in the inauguration of the Bowling Green, on the
extreme edge of Beacon Hill Park.
To anyone not biased who attended
the opening of the green, no other
impression could be received than
that thc passtime so started is, and
can be, nothing else than a most valuable and desirable addition to the
many attractions which our city already possesses. When one can see
no less than sixty-four men enthusiastically engaged in rolling the
bowls over a finely cropped and rolled
grass field, each and every one intensely interested if not excited as he
watches the track of his bowl towards
thc Jack following up every move
of his bowl until it reaches its final
resting place, and at the same time
having his family and friends sitting
quietly observing the game and following every move and action. We
cannot but congratulate the gentlemen who in the first place energetically instituted this delightful past-
time, and in thc second place the public spiritedncss of our City Council
in providing the place. We have in
this Bowling Green Club added to
our assets, and today's event fully
demonstrated that fact. This afternoon's exercise on the green with the
Bowls was indeed one which should
mark an epoch in Victoria's history,

Oriental Cream
OB XAdXOAI. IUISTOB
BEAUTY THAT LASTS.
Where is the woman who has not
the praiseworthy desire to enhance
her personal charms and preserve as
long as possible her delightful power
of enchantment, which lasts as long
as her beauty? The Oriental Cream,
prepared by Dr. T. Felix Gouraud, of
New York City, is a harmless preparation for preserving the delicacy
of the complexion and removing
blemishes. It is the favorite toilet
article of the leading professional
artists, who owe so much of their
popularity to their personal charms.
Scarcely a star dressing room in the
land is without Gouraud's Oriental
Cream, which is the most wholesome
and perfect beautifier known. Druggists will supply you. No. 8.

W. BLAKEMORE, Editor.
Women in
British Columbia
By BOHEMIAN.
My attention has been called to an
important article appearing in an
English publication which was evidently written by an English lady
who has settled in the Province of
• British Columbia. It is a clever
article, but suggests a rather superficial acquaintance vvith actual conditions. The assertion that British
Columbia is more English than any
other place outside the British Isles
is a conclusion which could only have
been reacheo by one who had con-
.'fined their observation to Vancouver
Island. While there are other sections of the Province in which English settlers predominate there is no
other' in which there is a distinctive
English sentiment, and in which the
community is aggressively pro-British.
The writer pays a compliment to
the homes of Victoria which is well
deserved. She dubs them home-like,
and admits that the climate is equal
to the best of the South of England.
A very glowing eulogy is passed upon
Victoria girls, who are said to be extremely attractive, but 1 am not sure
that it is not straining the facts a
little to say that in he old days most
families spared a least one daughter
for His .Majesty's services. The sentence is rather ambiguous, but let that
pass. Thc writer who seems to be as
observant as Elizabeth, naturally has
something to say on the engrossing
subject of matrimony. She formed
the opinion that every Colonial girl
can marry if she wishes to do so, but
that there are still many spinsters
who remain unmarried because they
will not consent to go out into the
country and live on ranches. 1 am
not sure that this is correct. I have
yet to meet with the girl who would
refuse to marry any decent man because he was a rancher, in fact until
it has been tried it is the most attractive form-of life; what happens
afterwards is another story, but since
no man or woman ever yet profited
by another's experience, it is hardly
likely that this circumstance is a deterrent to matrimony.
The writer draws a sharp distinction between Victoria and Vancouver.
She regards the former as a City of
homes, beauty and luxury; Vancouver
as a city in which any woman who
wants to work can do so at good
wages.
The writer certainly got to the bottom of the servant girl problem for
she discovered that in British Columbia, as elsewhere, girls choose anything rather than domestic service,
though there is a choice of place for
everybody, and $5 a week as a minimum, with an extraordinary degree of
freedom. She is quite right when she
says that such situations as a governess
gets in England are unknown out
here. The common schools in the
town are excellent and children of all
classes go to them. The trouble is
that no Western family would welcome a governess who expected to be
waited on, instead of helping to wait
on other people. She, therefore, urges
that in the event of any governess
seeking employinnt in British Columbia she should add to her usual qualifications, those of being able to do
house-work, cooking, needlework and
washing, and even then she will not
earn as much as a domestic servant.
The closing paragraph is so excellent
that I have not thc slightest hesitation in endorsing it, and I therefore
quote it in full:
"But she will get a better position,
both in the immediate present and as
regards her prospects of marriage;
for class distinctions are recognized
plainly, as one expects of a colony
so English. Meanwhile her experiences as jack-of-all trades will be
most useful to her, for, marry whom
she may, she will have to do her own
work often, if not always, and she
will make a poor colonist's wife if,
in the intervals* of bringing up her
children, she is not able to cook, and
clean, and sew as she did before her
marriage, with the difference that she
cannot now give a week's notice and
leave. It is only fair to add that
much amusement is dovetailed into
the hard work, and that British Columbian women reflect the general elation and cheerfulness of their colony,
and have the slightest wish to change
places or employment with any
woman in the world."
Governor Hughes' Invention.
"Don't you think that Governoi
Hughes makes an admirable governor
of New York?" asked a inan to :t
friend recently.
"Yes, I do. But it is as an inventor
that I admire him most;" replied the
friend.
"Inventor? Why, I didn't know hc
was an inventor. What has he invented?"
"Why, the horseless race-track."

after being nearly frozen and on the
verge of starvation consented to be
carried back into his cabin and fed.
The ravens failed to come.

Housekeeping goods will soon be needed. The first essential towards good housekeeping
is a good Gas Eange. The June benedict-to-be should see that his bride experiences tlie
joy of a stove that's always ready, an oven that's always right, and a heat that can be
regulated scientifically.
Home comfort cannot be assured with
coal or wood fires for cooking purposes.
Don't cook the cook over a red-hot range
on a warm day. Avoid this by cooking
with gas; just a turn of the tap—no
worry, no work, no waste of fuel or
time. Gas makes home comfortable
summer or winter.
Gas Eange comfort means that you can
cook any meal of the day, summer or-
winter, with ease and comfort. Let one
of our men set up a gas range in your
kitchen and you will find that you have
the most modern and convenient cooking apparatus. The cost of maintenance
is far less than for a coal range.

The presumable closing up of a
deal between the City and the B. C.
E. R. on the Jordan River proposition will go a long way to solve thc
problem of cheap power and light.
I do not know that it will help much
on the water question, According to
the Mayor, another week will see
Smith's reservoir and the new service
in operation, and thereafter we are to
have plenty of water. Having waited
twenty years we can no doubt possess our souls in patience another
week, and then we shall see what we
shall see, but my object in drawing
attention to the matter is that what
Victoria is up against will not be
solved by a water system that meets
present requirements; even Elk Lake
might du that for a little while under
the new system of distribution. What
is wanted is a source of supply which
will take care of the future. In this
connection 1 am reminded that when
Mr. Adams first came on the scene
the population of Victoria was well
under 30.000. lt is now well over
40,000, and growing every day. Unless there is a very sudden and unexpected halt the 50,000 mark will
have been passed long before it would
be possible to complete any permanent works on a new scheme. It is
this rapid growth which is continually
rton-plussing our civic solons; they
want to look a little further ahead
and try to adapt their ideas to Western development. In any case I sincerely hope this is the last season of
drought. It makes mc tired to see
the lawns of our City burnt up and
our beautiful roses drooping. Victoria is essentially a city of gardens
and the facility with which these can
bc cultivated and made beautiful with
an adequate water supply constitutes
one of the greatest attractions for living here. I told last year of a prominent citizen who has spent a large
sum of money on making one of the
most beautiful homes and gardens in
Victoria. He threw it up in disgust
and went away because he could not
get enough water to keep it green.
I know this is a tiresome subject
and perhaps its continual discussion
betokens lack of originality, if so, I
must certainly please guilty, but I
cannot forget the old proverb that the
constant dripping of water will wear
away a stone, and I would fain believe even a "heart of stone."
A good deal has been said at one
time or another in this column about
lack of parental control, and the free
and, easy manner in which young
people are allowed to roam about the
streets of Victoria at all hours of the
night. The trouble at the White
Horse saloon this week strongly emphasizes what I have contended for.
Here is the case of two young girls
visiting a public house of doubtful
reputation after midnight, in company
with a man who treated them tu
liquor. Investigation shows that one
girl, at the age of 15, was the subject
of enquiry by the Children's Aid Society, who appealed to the courts to
turn her over to their care, but were
met with opposition from the father,
and on his urgent plea and a promise
that the girl would be better looked
after she was restored to his keeping. This man is a widower whose
work keeps him from home, sometimes for long intervals; there is no
person of mature years in charge during his absence, and it is easy to sec
how the poor girl has drifted into her
present position. The circumstances
with respect to the other girl are
slightly different, but in both cases
the lack of parental control is conspicuous, and the question naturally
arises whether there should not be
some public authority to protect girls
of tender years who are left to their
own devices.   No doubt the Giildren's
Aid Society has done a great deal in
this direction in the past, but it has
fallen on evil times, is woefully short
of funds, and is hampered with a
committee which takes little or no
interest in its operations. The White
Horse case should impress parents
with a stronger sense of their responsibility; it should also lead, not to the
mere suspension, but to the permanent closing of licensed houses of the
type of the White Horse, of which
there are far too many in the City.
*     *     *
My sporting confrere made some
rather drastic remarks last week on
the tram car service to the Willows
race track. 1 think that on busy
days his remarks were justified, although on slack days the service is
adequate. On the whole the British
Columbia Electric Railway deserve
credit for having installed a far better
service than ever before, but they
have overlooked one point which will
go a long way to solve the difficulty.
Instead of keeping the cars on the
blind track, they should construct a
switch at the entrance to thc grounds
long enough to hold at least six or
eight cars, then people could be
loaded up as soon as they came off
the grounds. The present arrangement by whieh they have to wait from
five to ten minutes while the cars are
being* brought in is very tantalizing.
In this connection 1 want to make
a suggestion to the owners of the
hacks and automobiles which ply for
hire. I know lots of people who
would gladly ride up town with them
if there were some conspicuous notice that any particular vehicle is for
hire and not already engaged. It
would also conduce to business if the
price of the ride were conspicuously
posted. I heard a number of people
asking lookers on thc question: "How
much a piece do they charge to take
you up in a hack?" Nobody seemed
to know and the suggestions varied
from 25 cents to a dollar. This is
bad management on the part of the
hack drivers. If each hack would
display a  notice  stating exactly the
charge per head, many people would
jump in who now hang round in uncertainty and either wait until the
next car comes or walk.

Settle Boundary Dispute.
Seattle, Wash., June 18.—The Supreme Court of the United States believes that the states of Oregon and
Washington should get together and
settle their boundary dispute along
the Columbia river, without going into court. This opinion is expressed
in denying the petition of Washington for a rehearing. The controversy
concerns jurisdiction over certain inconsiderable islands, which are valuable only for the' fishing grounds
surrounding them. As a result of
disputed jurisdiction there have been
frequent conflicts between the authorities of both states in the administration of their respective laws. The
Supreme Court holds that Oregon retains control over these islands. In
closing the dispute reference is made
to a recent act of Congress, designed
"to enable the states of Mississippi
and Arkansas to agree upon a boundary line and to determine the jurisdiction of crimes committed on the
Mississippi river and adjacent territory." The Court suggests that Washington and Oregon might be governed by this Act, and appoint commissioners to agree on a boundary line
to avert future conflicts.
