Sir,- ���You will pardon me for  troubling- the Claim in a matter  which may seem to some a trivial  offence, bui as my case has been  discussed both in court and on the  street, it would not'ba amiss of me  giving my version how I came to  le charg-ed with stealing powder  and how I was acquitted.  , On Sunday, 5th Aug"., W. C  Robinson laid information against  me for   stealing  one   box  of  arresting me? Why did tlie constable absolutely refuse my bondsman to show him or read the warrant, so that he would definitely  know   what   1. was  charged   with?  the   constable    to  giant  powder from M. J. Heney, On this  clay   I   was   told   that  a   man had  '' been looking for me in my absence,  and' thinking that it was the agent  of parties interested iu my property,  I went to him and asked if he had  been looking for ae, but., he said  ���'no." , A description - being given  rue of the man corresponded in detail with the constable, H. Heal,  and' 1 went to him at the Police office and they told me he was down at  ^niy^cajjiu., ..Heje^olained he wanted information about a claim 0 >  Taku Arm "and never mentioned  anything to me regarding- the  theft, (the warrant had already been  issued.) 0*1 Monday Constable  Heal called at my cabin. I was  sick in bed, but got up, and thinking it was quartz he was after, I  showed him a piece of rock to cotn-  voart with the rock he showed m'j  at the.police office. After half an  hour's needless talk he informed  me he was on a serious charere,  and charged me with stealing powder. He produced a document  which he would not let me see,  aud then put" me under arrest. I  told him I could prove there and  then my innocence by producing the  receipt for two boxes'giant powder,  having bought the same  from Mr  Heney's agent.     He told me it was  not necessary to show   any   papers  Does it lay   with  grant bail or not?  My case ultimately came up for  trial on Tuesday and after my accuser detained ' me in court all  morning aud knowing well, that I  was innocent all the time, and on  my wife putting up bail the second  time, the ag��.nl -for the prosecutor  (Mr. Grant) on seeing" that my  principal witness was waiting to be  subpoened and that bonds had  again been put up, finally came  forward and stated that "they had  received a telegram that morning  from Mr. He'ney.that two boxes of  powder had been'^sold to , Donovan  by Mr.' Phelps, agent for Heney."  They then withdrew the charge  without my consent or the consent  of my solicitor! "-"  I have .been up;<in~this country  lor three years now arfcl am one of  the pioneers of Atlin, holding prop  ertyin this" district "sTiice" Aug-ust,  '98, aud I defy any man to prove  me as being a thief.  Had the constable or any persons  whatever asked information or made  any inquiries as to where I got the  powder, I would have instantly  told them ana I have already told  all those who asked, and satisfied  them by producing the receipt.  What I complain t,f is a constable or my persecutor arresting me,  a citizen and property owner, on  such a serious charge without making sufficient inquiries. -  . P. Donovan-.  Atlin, Aug. 9,   1900.  dynamite? A -hasty removal followed and a new. seat found, when  again came tlie warning voice,  "Madam, you are sitting on another." About this time the reporter, thinking absence of body  was better than presence of idind,  discovered that he had to chronicle  a   dog fight out in the'suburbs  HAS NO LICE.TSE-  C.  Overgaarde Eined $25 for I rac-  tising Without Authority.  C. Overgaarde, of Pine, claims to  be   a,  regularly ��� qualified    medical  THEY SAY THAT LOVE 13 A  PLEASURE.

We have something to tell  you.  Neil,   who   stated to   him. that he  (Neil) brought the  same boxes  of  powder Donovan had  all   the   way  from Bennett to Atlin and got same  at 'the   magazi.-.e  at   Bennett ' from  Mr. Phelps, agent for M. J. Heney.  , There and then the' constable   took  me to the police station after I   had  notified my wife of my arrest.     My  wife   brought with her a bondsman  who wanted to see the  warrant  or  have it read, and   my   wife and   I,  also  demanded   the same, but Constable     Heal     absolutely   refused.  Then   I wanted to put up bonds for  my appearance   to  the magistrate,  but  Constable   Heal's  reply   was.  "Young   man,   it  all lays with me  whether   you  get  bonds  or  not."  After    some    delay   my   bondsman  went and got the  magistrate    who  granted   bail   for  $250:      I  understand under British   law   a   man   is  always  innocent  until he is proved  guilt}',    but   I   was  condemned  at  once.    Should the constable or my  accuser   not   have   made    full   inquiries on the ground before laying  such a serious charge against me or  AN ELEVATING INELUENCE.  The Police Court has been doing  a rushing business and has been  held in the school tent during the  week. On Tuesday three cases of  giant powder were produced as evidence in a case being tried, and a  general feeling that something  might happen was the result. One  lady, of more than average avoirdupois, who had dropped iu to hear  the proceedings, was sitting quietly  in a corner, and must have felt  prickly when the judge suavely  remarked to her, "Madam, are you  aware you are sitting on. a  case   of  man, and to have served as  such   i;.  the    navy   of   His   Majesty,   King  Christian of Denmark.    He admits,  however, that he has not passed the  board of medical   examiners   in   B.  C. and is ineligible   to  practise   for  money,   gain,   or the hope of personal profit, either   in   this  world   or  the  next,   which,   by   the   wav   is  rather    hard  on   a   philanthropist,  .who, "whatever  he  his   rewards   in  the next world,   invariably   get's   it  where the chicken gets the  axe   in  this.      Nothing  daunted, by    this  paucity of rewards' Mr. Overgaarde  started a private   hospital  in   Pine,  and this excited the ire of Dr. Morrison, who properly   considers   that  he is licensed and-amply competent  to do all  classes, of bleedings himself.    The thing was to catch Overgaarde accepting a fee   for  medical  services.    The old and stale' plan of  engaging a stool pigeon and  informer was the only one the   medico's  mighty brain   factor}';   was  capable  of evolving.    So thought, so  done.  The informer, provided-'with a-fake  case of   rheumatism  and  a   dollar,  consulted   Overgaarde,     who  prescribed for the  supposed   complaint,  and  in   a   moment   of   abstraction  pocketed   the  co;n.    For  this,   an  information, was laid against Overgaarde by  Dr.   Morrison,   and   the  case    was    disposed  of   by  Judge  Woods at the Police. Court  on   the  7th inst.    In defence,   the  accused  stated that five-fifths of the population of Pine did   not   pine  for  Dr.  Morrison's   .services   and   that   his  charges .were    beyond     all , legal  bounds.       As   a  consequence  sick  people.came to him.    He made  no  charges.  The judge had no scruples about  making charges, however, and  fined Mr. Overgaarde $25 aud $ro  costs.  feree disallowed it on the ground  of his having 'fouled the ball'.  The ball given under the auspices of the club in the evening diew  out a very select party, and was  .much enjoyed by those present:  The return match will be played  at Pine this afternoon, and will be  followed by a tug-of war, Scotch v.-  French in McDonald's hall, for $roo  side.���-.-r^--���-- " .  ���  CONDENSED   NEWS.  The Chinese situation i.*.- one of,  rumors. The allied armies started  from Tien Tsin on. their proposed  march to Pekin, Aug. 1st.  .

The Government Buildings to be  Opened with Concert and Ball. .  The handsome new Government  buildings will be formally opened  on Tuesday evening, 14th inst.  Gold Commissioner Graham and  staff invite the public to be present.  There will be no special invitations  issued. A most elaborate musical  programme has   been  got  bracing all  FOOTBALL.  The football match last Saturday,  Atlin v. Pine, again resulted in a  tie, each side scoring two goals. At  this rate the match for the medals  will never be decided. Iu future  contests the time limit should be  disregarded' iu case of a tie and  playing continued until either side  scores. Several brilliant individual  plays were made during the day's  game, among them being the goals  by Norman Rant and C. R." Bourne.  In the latter case, however,  the   re-  up, em-  the available talent of  the district. Afterwards-a ball will  be given and refreshments served.  The proceedings will commence  sharp at 9 o'clock. In connection  with ,this notable event 'we may  state that lovely souvenir programmes are being prepared. They  will"contain a photograph of the  buildings, concert and ball programme, names of officials, etc.  These will be disposed off for one  dollar each, and the receipts donated to the Atlin Literary club for  the purpose of a'ding in furnishing  the   reading  and   recreation rooms.

No paper will be tleliveretl  Unless t hese conditions are complied with.  .In tin interview with Mr. Bioin-  ley, - published in the Vancouver  World, July ,31st,. some rather interesting comments are made upon  current life and doings in Atlin.  Mr. Bromley is engineer for the  JNimrod Syndicate, and announces  that his company have fallen out of  the contest for the Yellow Jacket,  not being desirous of mixing up iu  a six'or seven-sided squabble for its  'possession. He points out, with  some  reason,  that the besetting sin  employed to force them to it. N<vt  one of us but is liable to be put  through a similar experience like  Donovan's unless the makers, of  such charges are held strictly accountable when'they harrass the  wrong man as was done in this  case.   .  of the  camp is the mania for stak-  ��� ing'out mineral  claims   by   parties  who   have no intentions of developing,   but   only   hold   for  a  chance  customer.      He   suggests  that  the  recording  fee  be raised from $2.50  to $20, iu order  to  choke  off this  . class/ and   that a   new   survey   be  made every mouth and  plans  kept  in the recorder's office for reference.  Perhaps   Mr.  Bromley's most valuable suggestion is that  the  powers  ��� of the  Gold   Commissioner  be  in-  creased'to  a ,��� level  such   as  is  enjoyed by the Gold Wardens in Australia.     As  the camp is apparently  not     going   to   have  a  permanent  County   Court judge,   but  only  a  two months' visit from one  once' a  year, this suggestion appeals  to 'us  as   being;   a   most  reasonable   one.  People who   are willing to open up  claims cannot, and will not,stand to  be    put  off   eight  or  ten   months  waiting   the advent  of a judge to  settle   disputes   about    ownership,  boundaries  and so forth.    Our present Gold Commissioner enjoys the  confidence of the mining community to a very high   degree, and   any  extension of his   powers,   such   as  that indicated   above,   would   have  its   warmest   endorsement,   besides  being  a   long move in the right direction and a   decided incentive  to  the early   opening   up  of our   un-  doubtedlv rich resources.  The case of Regina vs. Donovan,  charged by the White Pass and Y.  Railway with stealing giant powder,  presents some features which call  for remark. Here is .a hard working man, arrested on a criminal  charge, forced to put up $250 for  bail or go into durance, subjected  to all the mental trouble such a  terrible charge must necessarily  cause, kept for days from his labor  and incurring heavy legal and other  expenses besides. He appears in  court when called. The case is  postponed. He appears again, when  the prosecuting attorney declines to  proceed against him as the Railway^  Company had meantime foui.d out  that Mr. Donovan had purchased  his giant powder in a perfectly  open and legal manner. What had  Mr. Donovan' done that he should  be subjected to all this? Absolutely nothing. Where does his recompense come in? The railway company in all justice owe this man an  apology and material,solatium. If  their own sense of fair play does  not prompt them to take the step,  theu means ought to be found   and  JAPS FOR MANITOBA.  The   New   Westminster  Columbian iu a late issue, said:  A new departure in   the  employment of cheap labor,  an experiment  which   will   be   watched   with   the  greasiest interest by .every   man   in  the Province, not to say, the  whole  Dominion, is the' proposed shipment  of 1,000 Japanese, to   Manitoba, ���' to  take part in   the  season's   harvest  As a matter of fact,   there . will   not  be a community   on   this   continent  but what may   be  affected   by   this  new movement, if it  proves  a   success, aud. just now there appears   to  ���to be no reason why it should   not.  A' gentleman," who lor the present  wishes   his   name   to  be   withheld,  has been   through - Manitoba,   with  the object iu  view of   pushing  this  scheme, and states that he believes  that there will be no difficulty whatever in   placing  between   Soo   and  1,000 Japanese with   the  Manitoba  farmers, at about one-half the wages  at present paid to   the   farm   hands  who come   up   from   Ontario  each  season on  the   harvest  excursions.  During the   winter, - he  says,   they  will  find   employment  getting   out  and cutting wood, fence . rails, etc.;  for with the introduction   of cheap  labor, the farmers would be able   to  go   into   fencing,   election  of outbuildings, etc.,   011 .a   much  larger  scale  than  heretofore.    For   these  reasons the   Manitoba   farmer  will  welcome the introduction of the Jap,  certainly preferring theraveiy much  to the   Doukhobors,   and   they   are  willing  workers,    and    will    have  no   difficulty   whatever    iu   learning the ordinary routine of the farm.  The people who are likely to'object  to the scheme are the Ontario  boys  who come up for the Manitoba harvest  each    summer.    If they   do,  they will be   brought   face  to  face  with the cheap labor question,   and  will  be   able    to    understand    the  struggle that has been going on at the  Pacific Coast, and   will  sympathize  more heartily   with   theii   brethren  who are carrying on   that  struggle  out here, practically unaided.

Thiough the medium  of these farmers, this question will  be brought home \ery forcibly to  the Eastern members of the Dominion House, who have seen fit hitherto to oppose restrictive Asiatic legislation, with the probable result  that the next session will see a  strong anti-Asiatic Bill introduced  and passed. Agriculture is an important pursuit injapan. and although  they have not been accustomed to  the use to modern machinery, it  would not take them long to pick it  up. Several of the important business and professional men, when  seen this morning consider the  scheme a good one, for, besides bringing the Asiatic immigration question home to the Easterners, it  would serve to relieve the present  congested state of the British .
