„   TJU_J_
The Golden Sovereign mine at Aspen
Grove has got itself tangled np in the
courts and the outcome of the suit pending will be watched with considerable
interest. Messrs. John P. McConnell and
Jno. M. Miller are suing J. E. Bate, S. J.
Bate, Julia A. Henshaw and Robt. J.
Armstrong for a recision of the contract,
the return of $25,900 paid by plaintiffs to
the defendants and unstated damages.
It is stated that the plaintiffs purchased
the Golden Sovereign group of claims
from the defendants in Julv, 1905. Recently, it is alleged two of the claims
were found to have run out and restaked
by other parties, and McConnell e't aj.
are now suing for the purchase price. It
is alleged the claims restaked are the
most valuable of the group. As the Sovereign group is a very valuable property
a lively legal contest is looked for.
FIRE BRIFADE DANCE.
A committee of the Fire Brigade met on
Wednesday evening to consider the advisability of holding a dance, for the purpose of raising funds to purchase necessary fire fighting apparatus The only
obstacle seems to be the inability to secure a piano for the even'tig. There are
several pianos in town but their owners
don't seem inclined to loan them out,
claiming they are subject to damage in
moving. This is certainly to be regretted
as the object of the dance is a praiseworthy one aud deserving of support. It
is to be sincerely hoped the necessary instrument will be forthcoming from some
quarter. Just before going to press it
was learned that Mr. Waterman had
saved the situation by kindly offering his
piano for use.    Hurrah for Waterman !
RAILS AT OROVILLE.
The Looniis Prospector of Nov. 16
says: "Railroad iron is stretching down
near to Oroville, and if there are no more
( hitches the construction crew should be
in the town next week. It has been a
long drawn out delay, but people have
become used to that kind of a thing of
up in this country where time cuts
no figure in a contract. However we
ought to be thankful that the cars are so |
near at last, with a prospect of their
being still nearer before winter is over.
Lcng stage rijdes and annoying freight
delays will soon be a thing of the past, j ranged for the evening and the grown
and the whole upper country will feel ups as well as the children will be furn-
the benefit of the change."    Tbe Star is   ished with a  pleasant   evening's   enter-

A target was elected   near   the   Court
v j B ■■ ■
House and in the course of the afternoon
several dozen turkeys and chickens.were
shot off.    There were some  crack   shots
present and keen rivalry was   displayed.
Mr.   Roberts,   of  the  V.V. & E." survey,'
c irried off the largest number of prizes.
Taking   everything   into' consideration
some very creditable scoring   was   (tone;
MeSdaiues Milliken, Bell and Godsoe
faced the target in the ladies' competition, and there was a scattering to get
well behind the firing line. Several
shots were fired before the target was
found, and then Mrs. Milliken covered
herself with glory by placing a shot fair
and square in the center of the bull's eye,
winning for herself a handsome gobbler.
The bird seemed to appreciate the honor
of being captured by so fair a shot, and
appeared to bethinking how he would
dress on Xtnas day, as he was anxious to
make a good showing  on   that occasion.
Mr. Gibson was well pleased with the
financial end of the sport and promises
to have another shoot in the course" of a
cc#iple of weeks.
XMAS TREE  ENTERTAINMENT.
The annual children's Xmas tree entertainment will take place on the evening of the 21st inst. in the Court House.
The Misses Lyall report having met with
great success in canvassing for subscriptions for this lauduable purpose, the do

of good things at the hands of dear old
bewhiskered Santa Claus. To be strictly
up to data Santa is thinking of arriving
this year in an automobile.
As in past years the children of the

east as far as Jameson's are invited to
join in and partake of the good things.

In Seattle Harbor  with Fatal

—Carlessness Cause.
Steamboat collisions and mishaps seem
to be the oroler of the day, and Seattle
has maintained its reputation for taking
the lead in matters sensational by having
|in its harbor no less than three collisions
ia one week. On Monday, the 19th, the
steamer'Dix 'Capt. P.'-Leermon, bound
from Seattle to Port Blakely, with passengers, sank-two miles north 'i of .lAlki
Point shortly after 7 a. rji. .Sunday,.after

three'passengers' and' 'members of the

saved. The Dix is a total wreck, while
the Jeannie >vas not injured in the least.
On the morning of the 23rd the City of
Seattle collided with the Monticello. and
a short time afterwards the steamers

both of the latter cases heavy passenger
lists were carried, and fortunately no
serious results occurred from the collisions.

SALE  OF   GOVERNMENT LANDS.
• The auction of Government land situated at Point Grey and North Vancouver
held in Vancouver city last week realized
the unexpected sum of {670,000. Jtf>is
stated Mr. Rankin, the auctioneer who
conducted the sale, received a 5 per cent,
commission, totalling up $33,500 on the
deal. The.World, in referring to the
sale, says: "There is a rumor that the
auctioneers for three days' work and the
advertising will receive 5 per cent, on
{670,000, which will give them {33,500 as
commission ! ! Is this rumor susceptible
of corroboration? We simply ask the
question for information, for should it
prove to be true then there has been an
unpardonable waste of public monies
and people ought to know it. Five per
cent, is far and away.beyond the proper
scale for real estate sale of such magnitude. There is not a dealer in the city
who would not have been content with
one per cent, or even less."
D. A Carmichael, superintendent of
telephone construction, returned from
Aspen Grove on Monday. In conversation with a Star representative, Mr. Carmichael said it had been decided to suspend operations in connection with tbe
erection of telephone poles during the
winter, it having been found that the
work could not be satisfactorily carried
on when the frost was in the ground.
The work will be resumed in the spring
as soon as weather permits..

FREE TRADE IN RAILWAYS.
(Vancouver   World.)
In the past this journal has had
much to say about railway building. It has advocated the adoption
of a polic}' of free trade in railway
charters so that an end may be put
to the very unpleasant, not to say
disgraceful scenes that have been
presented session after session in
the lobbies and committee rooms of
the Ottawa and Victoria Parliaments. It has been contended that
where a concession is not sought by
a railway con:pan5r it should have
tbe same right to secure a charter
as a company that incorporates and
is seeking the right to build a
bridge, work a mining claim or establish a sawmill. A railway that
has been declared to be a road for
the general good does not need a
Provincial charter. It may even
possess itself of a right - of-way
without Provincial permission.
That right has been established by
a decision of the British Privy Council. It is only when a company
ask to build a railway that they are
required to come before the Local
Legislature for a special act. We
have asked before and we now ask
again whether the time has not arrived in the history of British Columbia when the necessity for the
passage of a private bill for railway
purposes should cease and railway
companies be put on a footing with
other companies formed for other
objects ?
Why is power given to every
other company to do what it pleases
and railway companies are alone
excepted ? Why should the enterprising capitalist with bona fide
schemes be forced to go before the
Legislature and run the gauntlet of
a private bills committee and of a
vote in the House to obtain permission to spend millions, while parties
who represent interests other than
railways are given a free hand ? It
cannot be because the railway coit-
panies seek a right-of-way; they
have that anway; nor can it be because they ask rights that the constitution fails to confer upon them
Some ten years ago the Victoria
House passed a general tramway
act, which conferred upon tramway
companies the right to  build with-
charter.    They are required only to
register.   Now, why should not the
same right be extended to  railway
companies?    Why should  the   law
not be   amended so  that   in   cases
where a railway franchise or  char
ter is required it could be obtained
upon the same terms as  a   charter
for a tramway?    Wherein  lies  the
difference that calls for  exceptional
treatment?    Of course, where a subsidy is asked the matter assumes a
different aspect and the Legislature
should be consulted.    But where a
subsidy is  not   asked   the   parties
show their   good   faith  and   their
ability to perform   the   work   they
wish to undertake, and are willing
to come within the terms of a general act, they should   be   accorded
the freest and broadest   encourage-T~~*«
ment.    They should be  welcomed/
with   open   arms.      No   obstacles!
should be placed in their way and ai
private act should not  be required!
Many years ago  the  practice   than
required   American   railway  com*
panies to go to a State  Legislature!
and procure acts to allow  them  tcJ
build,   was   discontinued.    It wasl
found that the bills when before the
Legislatures were made the objects
of corruption and graft and  that no
company that was  not willing, like
veal, to be "bled white," need hope
for a successful  application.    Now
that is all  changed   on   the   other
side.    All that a  railway company
has to do is to incorporate, register
its intention   to   build, define   the
line of its road, and there you are !
The  Legislature having  delegated
its power to an official  has nothing
to do with granting the charter, the
cost of which in   registration   and
other fees is only from $50 to $100.
Here a  private   railway bill   costs
from $1,000 to $2,000, lawyer's fee?
included.    How much goes in graft
will  never be known.    Certainly a
reform is needed and candidates for
the Legislature who may take   the
stand that there should be free trade
in railways ought to be elected.
poor dupes almost tumble over
each other in their effort to get
something for nothing or fabulous
returns for a small outlay, which
anyone of average intelligence
ought to know was a swindle without being apprised of the fact.
Aside from this  the   press   of  the
country is continually warning the
people of the dangerous character
of those swindling operations and
publishing reports of the thousands
who have learned by dear experience of the fraudulent nature of so
many concerns in which they have
intrusted their all. We would say
it serves them right were it not.for
the fact that the victims in many
cases are poor people who can ill
afford to lose their daily earnings
in this manner.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The cigarette fiend is being hit
hard upon all sides in the business
world. The Chicago, Burlington
& Quincy Railroad Co. has announced that every employee found
smoking cigarettes will be discharged, as the company have ascertained
to their satisfrction that the cigarette fiend cannot, or does not, perform his duties in as satisfactory a
manner as does the other fellow.
If we are to judge by the thousands of people who are being dail
swindled by the numerous get rich
schemes that infest the country, the
American people are becoming particularly easy. Almost every large
city seems to be a fruitful field for
the swindler's operations,   and   the

\   COPPER   HANDBOOK
Sixth   Annual   Edition   Just
Issued by Horace J.
Stevens.
Replete with Valuable Information
for the Miner and  Investor—For
Sale at Low Figure.
The sixth annual edition of the Copper
Vx Handbook, the only publication  devoted
exclusively to the copper industry, has
been issued, being several months later
than usual in appearing, owing to the
sickness of the author last spring, but
matter of much later data has been used
than in preceding issues, so that the
book is as nearly up-to-date as its predecessors, and far more bulky aud exhaustive in its treatment of the manifold
phases of an industry that is world wide
in scope.
The Copper Handbook is encyclopaedic in scope, but is written throughout
in plain language, easily understandable
by those lacking a technical education?
The work begins with a chapter 011 the
the history of copper, followed by articles
on the geology, chemistry, mineralogy,
metallurgy and uses of the metal, with
eight chapters devoted to condensed description of the known copper deposits
of the globe. A glossary of mining terms
will be found useful to all readers not
thoroughly conversant with practical
mining, milling and smelting. The statistics of the copper trade and of copper
share finances are covered in forty pages
, of highly condensed and accurate tables.
The major portion of the book is devoted to a chapter describing practically
all known copper mines of the world,
• and listing every copper mining company of importance. The detailed descriptions tn the main chapter of the
book a-.e especially valuable because of
their completeness, covering, as they do,
exact titles, full addresses, details of organization, officers and fin-nee, in addition to full and careful particulars regarding location, area, ores mine development, equipment and prospects.
Heretofore works of reference devoted to
mines have confined themselves either to
the financial or the mining end, but the
Copper Handbook covers all the features
of inteiest to investors, miners or-scientists, not of one mine or company, but of
thousands, not in one district, but in
every district of the world.
The Copper Handbook is the only-publication in the mining field that gives
ratings to the mines and companies. The
reader is not asked'to take these ratings
on faith, but' the facts on which these
ratings are based are given in detail.
The^publisher makes tbe usual offer of
sending this book on a week's approval,
fully prepaid, to any address in the
world, without any advance payment.
This offer has been made for six years
pasr, arid the publisher states that of the
many thousands of books sent out, less
'* that three per cent, have been returned
as unsatisfactory.
