Today   is   (he   Election Day  to 'Fill the'Offices.  Necessary  and  important Duties  Which   Require Cordial Su**,-  1 *  port by tho Public.  - Sik :���As the. uecessaiy statutory steps lor the eleciion of Fiie  Warden-- foi both Allin and Dis-  covciy have been taken we may  expect that on Satuiday next (3d  prox.J iu.Allin ,aud on Monday,  5II1 prox., in ^ Discovery,' men will  be elected to fill these important offices. As this ofiice, like most office-; that entail gratuitous sei vice  in the interests of the* general  public, is a thankless one at^best, I  think it the duty of every citizen  fo assi-.t tlie Fiie Waidens whoever  "they may be, iti "currying out iheir  ��� plans and efforls for the public weal  and . safety. All light thinking  'people will do,this unsob'cited.'but  as there; are ' sometimes some so  shortsighted as to ignore all advice,  no matter how sensibly or kindh  given or intended,-aud who,' pei-  haps resent any interference wiih  their arrangements, for-getfubof the  fact that carlessness oroveisight on  their part may mean' serious 'loss  and damage lo others as well as to  themselves, it is necessary ,to re-  stiain ail such so as to protect  them as far as posoible' even fiom  themselves.  For tut: benefit of all such, I lake  the liberty of requesting you to  publish the following excerpts  fiom the Statutes so that yom  readers may know what legal  rights and povveis Fire Waidens  have if they choose to exercise  them.���Yours truly,  J. A. Frasicr. Gov. Agent.  Section 8. Chap. 83, K.S. of B.  C, as amended, leads as follows :  The Fiie Wardens, or a majority  of them shall have the following  powers '���  (a.) To visit and inspect, at all  reasonable bouts, all buildings and  ereetions in the town or its vicinity;  (b.) To direct aud regulate, in  "the town or its vicinity, thc po-i-  tiou of stove-', lire-places or furnaces, chimneys, stovc-pipcs aue!  smoke-stacks, anel the leiuoval,  ch 111 go or alteration of the same,  or of any of them, or the position  or condition oi them, or any of  them, and further tli reel lhat anything shall be done by way of pie-  cauticn to avert fire :  (c.) Gcuerallv to take such steps  for the prevention of tire in the  town, or to check its -.pieadii.g, as  they may think fit ;  (cl.-) To regulate Ihe storing of  powder or other explosives, and ihe  working of industries and places of  a character likely to cause danger  from fire ;  (c.)

P  Senatoc -Reid, of Cariboo, Submits District'Committee's Re-  *���-��� ��� *  ooi't on Pi-ooossd Aaieadments.   ,     .'  - As slated in our "previous issue,  a committee of experienced mining  men were appointed at" a public  meeting in'"Vancouver to draw up  a synopsis of the changes deemed  advisable in thc Placer Mining Act  -The ���, suggestions are , herewith  given" so that the 'miners of this  section may.tliorqughly familial ize  ihernselveVbii the points'involved."  Copies of-these suggestions will in  all probability, be ' refened lo the  different public bodies here for lati-  fication.  Suggested���    '  t. That practically no cinr-ge*  be made in the piesent Act fiou.  section 1 to section 89 inclusive,  except-in so far as is necessaiv to  prevent conflict with the changes  to be made in Part VII.  [Note. This would leave the Act  as it is iu regard to "shallow diggings " anel such as can be worked  by the individual miner ]  2. That Part VII., which refeis  to leases, be entirely eliminated,  with the exception of clauses '-103  and. 104, which refer to dredging  leases.  ��� 3. That in lieu ofthe clauses ie-  fening to leases, Part "II.-of the  Mineral Act, from section 15 to  53, both inclusive, be a'.opted in  principle, alterations and eliminations to suit the case being made.  [Note. The chief change would  be thc inciease of tlie amount  necessary to be spent annually be-  tore a Crown grant is obtained,  from $roo to $200, and of the total  amount before a certificate of improvement can be obtained, from  $500 to $1000.]  4. That the Part VII., refening  lo Crown grants, be retroactive m1*  regards .leases already held and  money already expended iheieon.  5. That the "Water Clause-  Consolidation Act, 1897," part III,  be amended by the inclusion of a  clause, enabling a record of. watei  for deep placer, located with a view  ot Ciown granting only, to be'helc'.  T.u a te-m of three years before i*.  would be necessaiy to begin the  work of bringing il to the mine.  [Note.'    This   would   give"   tin  claim holdei a  fair oppoi tunity o'  discovering    whether     h'e    would  teally require the water or not.    Ii  the ,m eon lime, the   water c-.uld b  used by others in "the viciLity^ahV'*  the rentals   would   be lepleuishiin  the Provincial exchequer.    Should  thc claim be abpndoncd or forfeilcd  the   water   right    would'   become  void.]  6. That clause 152 (Placer Act)  iave added .thereto a paragraph as  follows ;  "Tlie rate of taxation and the  ���mm expended in improvments ir  this clause have referer.ee- only le-  >lacer claims, of vvhich Crovvr  grants have been issued before the  passing of the ^amendments .ot  1903."  - 7. That a clause, numbered, 152  A, be-added as follows: "That  there-shall be levied and collected  from the owner or occupier of anv  placer claim of vvhich a Ciown  grant has issued after the' passing  ofthe amendments of 1903, an annual tax of o:.e dollar for ever*-  acre or fractional part of an acre ol  land conveyed by grant, " etc.,  etc. and as per clause 152���down  to ''against whom the tax may be  recovered." ,  ��� [Note. This large tax is imposed  only if the tax of two per cent on  tlie gross -.ulput of placers be rc-  '-ealeel. One dollar per acre would  yield as much revenue a*- Unit tax  and the icitalt on placer claim  lea'-es togelhci, and would be moie  .opular than the present manner of  raising lcvei'ue.]  Total output of placer gold in  Uritish Columbia for past five years  was $4,750,600, or S950,120 yea 1 ly,  say $1,000,000, and 2 per cent tax,  ;'520.ejoo.

On Sunday evening hurl, smoke  was found issuing from Ihe back  wall ol the Pioneer Bakery building, owned by Chas.' Myeis. The  tlarm was rung' in about 5.30 and  the engine was on ;thc spot in :i  very few minutes auc! a sticam of  water was soon playing on the fiie,  which was confined lo the sawdust  filling between the walls Tlie  fire was soon got under rontiol, but  some little damage was done by  water.  Mi. iVlyers requests us to extend  his guileful thanks to all those who  assisted in so lapiclly extinguishing the blaze.'  Yesterday morning an alaim was  rung^ in. for a Jire^ii; vthc Burns  block, occupied by Schulz's* Meat  Maiket,> The fire, as in the previous' instance * was confined bc-  Iween'lhe walls and was speedily  put out.  Both of these fiies weie caused  fiom defective flues, as was also th'e  fire three vyceks ago, which resulted in the total destruction of the  Vendome and Vancouver Hotels,  aud a very irapoitant moral may be  di awn' from past experience. Today is the day of election for. Fire  Waidens.    Sec  to it that men are  1 *  elected who are not afraid and will  enfoicc the duties devolving upon  them.  Rumour   Without- Confirmation.  Aiumour is iu circulation that  the Canadian Pacific Railway Co.  has purchased the White Pass  & Yukon syhU:iii, which, according  to the Seattle pi ess, has considerable iu il to savour of truth. At  the lime of the report none, of the  higher officials of the latter company weie in Seattle, and the others  would neither say yea nor nay.  ��� It is stated that the position  of Traffic Manager of the W. P..  made vacant by the resignation of  Mr. I,i_n will not be filled, and that  until ihete is open competition into  the lenitory controlled by the  road, the ofiice will be combined ,  with one of the other offices.  According to a despatch received  hist night, the freight rates over  the W.

A good resolution   for the New-  Year is to turn over a new   leaf in  your   Check   Book.    The Annual  ,S inscription   to  (he Claim is now  due. anel payable.  CROWN   GHANTS  We have been somewhat sur-  pr'sed at the appaient apathy shown  by the individual miners of this  section in regard to the proposal to  petilion the Government with the  view of having" certain changes  made iu the Mining Acts, more  particularly in that relating to  placer mining.  It is both necessary and advisible  that .. the ' miners of this district  should express an opinion upon  the; ubject so that Atliu's attitude  may be known.  It   should     not     be     said    at  some  future   date that   individual"  miners,    apart     from   companies,  were not consulted regarding these  proposed changes,   and  that those  most  vitally interested   railroaded  the changes,;vvhich, in a sense, are  radical one's,' through'the  House.  The matter is one  of such importance that it demands the most care-  ful consideration.    If the law leans  to the one   it   opens .opportunities  for the   individual   miner to stake  claims, not for the purpose of working them, but  for  the  purpose  of  erecting proprietory rights  against  the hydraulic company, which it is  compelled  to purchase.   , If, on the  other hand,  the  law  leans  to the  company, it may, bring  about the  .  most elisaslrous and deplorable condition ot affairs which 'can  be conceived   of  in   any   country, that,  namely,    where   the   company .or  capitalist is able to swallow up and  ��� eliminate the  miner  without  giv-  , ing  him   adequate   compensation.  There's the rub.    Both   vvai t  protection   aud   both- are  entitled to  protection;    To'suggest'a remedial  course  is  a  .very     difficult   matter,   one  for   tlie    interests     concerned to debate and arrange upon,  not     for     the   Legislature,   even  though il does resolve  itself into a  Mining Committee.    The Legislature shoultl only be called .upon to  pass measures approved of by these  whom the change in the law afllrcl.  It is now up to the miners to express their opinions.    We  have already intimated   that cur columns  are ops-.i for the discussion  of this  important  question.    Opinions are  called for so that the views, ofthe  great mining   community   of  the  Province may be  fully known and  recorded.  Have the Board of Trade or the  Atlin District   Miner's Association  Ml DECISIONS  Affecting    Eritish    Columbia  Mining Laws.  .A. "Special" Free Miner's Certificate is a Purely Personal  Right.'  The substance of two important  decisions, recently given by' the  Supreme Court of Canada, will be  of interest to many of our leaders.'  Tlie first of these decisions is applicable, in a measure, to' mining interests in this locality :  .Harvey   Van   Norman* Co. and  Balfour & Co, defendant appellants  vs. N. F.  McNaiight,   plaintiff respondent.     This   suit, turned   on  the sheriff's rights under a seizure  of a mining  partner's  interest in a  claim for debt, the   said   partner's  certificate expiring while the claim  was under seizure   and  the  sheriff  endeavoring   to hold the same under a special   certificate. ,   By  the  judgment   given     in   the  case at  Ottawa, it-has been   decided that a  sheriff can   seize i;nly the existing  rights of a debtor   at  the lime the  seizure is made"; also  that  a sheriff's seizure will not  protect a debtor   after   the   lapsing   of  a   free  miner's   certificate,  aiiy'moie than  the property would have been pro-  tected-if no seizure had been made ;  also, that only a free miner can take  out a special certificate, orpin otlier  words, that it is   a   personal right  vvhich neither sheriff nor  creditor  caii avail himself of.        '��� ' r-  ��� Iu Chief Justice Tachercau's  notes, the following is worthy of  special reference: ���-  "The words ' wholly or in part'  in section 4 of the Act.-.of'.. 1899,  whatever eonstiuction they are susceptible of, cannot be read as defeating the clear, unambiguous 'enactment of section 9, that, when a  co-owner's interest lapses by his  failure to keep,up his certificate on  the 31st day of May of each year,  his interest is not forfeited to the  Crown, nor to be .considered as abandoned, but that it shall, ipso  facto.be and become.vested in his  co-owners."  '   '  The other case, that  of Paulson  vs. Beaniau, this action was to adverse the respondent's claim to the  "Pearl"   mining     location    near  Kaslo, B. C, vvhich   overlaps   the  "Iron Chief"  location,   belonging  to Hie appellant.    The  action  was  dismissed ,by the Full Court on appeal from a judgment ou  preliminary objections as to non-production  of a plan   made   anel   signed  by a  Provincial Land Surveyor thus reversing the judgment   in   favor of  the plaintiff at the trial.    The  appellant   sought   the restoration of  the trial court judgment overruling  the preliminary objections  and admitting the plan's filed  as sufficient  to permit of a trial  ofthe merits of  the case   to   be   proceeded   with. I  Appeal   allowed' with   costs,  and  judgment of trial court restored.  Tlie case, in brief, is, that for the  Atlin,  ftsig&eti and &rape Rings  And All Kinds of Jewellery Manufactured on the Premises.
