was widely and carefully distributed
and we can   have   every   reason to
beiieve   that   it   will  yet do miuch
good for the district.

Saturday., Fkiiruarv 16th,   1901  Many of our readers will be  . glad to learn tint the wish e'x-  ' pressed in our obituary notice of the  Queen,' w likely -to be realized,  ihnt by her death her natal day will  no: pass into oblivion, aud that the  T.iih of May, which for nearly three  generations has .been celebrated all  over the English speaking world,  >vill still hold a place in our lives.  As the suggestion has been universal among English speaking people  .   that the 24th of May should be cb--  seived in the  future as in the past,  it will undoubtedly be set aside as a  ���   statute holiday by the home aud the  .- various ��� colonial governments.  At the coining session of the Dominion Parliauent it will be brought  up, and it is confidently expected  that an Act will be passed making  May 24th �� perpetual holiday.' -It  will most probably he known as  Empire Day, and will perpetuate in  the minds of future generations the  dt^en feeling "of love, and loyalty  manifested'towards   Queen Victoria  - throughout ��� th.e British Empire,  over which she ruled so long and  so widely.  ported-by the Amur, on her arrival  at Victoria on the 28th ult., the  above appears and is taken from  the Province of the following day.-  We have lived /"here, continuously  for many weeks, aye, years, if .you  like, but we never remember of  having seen or even heard of any  stampede to Klahena or any other  creek in the district, this winter.  We do remember seeing a forlorn  individual with his "silent partner"  returning from somewhere in that  section, some six weeks or more  ago., who told us that he" found  ground which would go $5 a day,  but he either forgot ,to bring samples with . him or he cached his  nuggets on thc way, at all events,  he was willing to barter his " find "  for a-"smile." We gave him the  smile, but his story was not encouraging or consistent er.ougb for  us to want to trade with him in his  real estate.  It has been and always" will be  our policy to state lhe truth and  nothing but the truth, so faras 0111  human frailties will permit, about  this district, but when such "news"  as the above finds its way outside  and is published in the Press, we do  think it is' time that onr small voice  should be heard. It' would be  farthest from our mind to do or say  anything which would create a  "boom" in Allin, without a  sound foundation. We wish to  place the camp upon its merits, in  which we have- lhe fullest confidence.

C,   regarding  the  liability of a  shareholder  of share* in   a mining  or other com pan'/, when the liability  has relation to the question o. "par  value."    A notice of the decision is  given in another column.    The pee-  ularity of the  dicision   in our mind  is that   the   liability  exists  only if  you  are the   IH13 er   of the    stock  from the  company and  still in possession of such stock.    As soon as  the shine certificate is '"transferred"  ytur   or   3iiv   one   else's   liability  ceases, according to our' reading of  the ���decision:        During   the   last  five or six  years, when   millions of  shares have been issued at .05 cents  TorSj.oo   par   value,   it   had been  universally  accepted   that when in  possession of a'company's receipt or  share cerlirica.'e,   purporting  10 ' be  for " One dollsr, par   value,"   your  liability there and then ceased. The  vast majority  of companies  doing  business, as well as their attorneys,  so constructed  it.    The outc mie of  the decision .will   undoubtedly  be  that   all   companies   placing   their  stock   on   the  market   will have to  sell at par value, l>e  that   par value  .01 cent or Sro.oo.  tion to the reports they publish.

The  decision is of particular interest to rho-se  who  have  at any time  purchased  shares at a price  below the certified  par value.     In effect   the judgment j  may be summntTzed a* follows :    [1 1  you buy shares at ,10 cents each on I  certificates which  r��present them to;  be-of" par value of St.00 each '"uaid !  ��� -i  up," direct "from the  company, yon  must pay the difference l>etween the  . 10 cents aud the par value, because  jyou knew  at  the time you bought  that vou  had   not   naid   their  face i  - * 1  value.
