Victoria, and Greenwood Have Similar Qualification Troubles-  Those who feel agrieved because the  Boundary Creek Times pointed out the  danger .in having men not properly  qualified elected to the council, should  ������; read the following- decision by Mr.  Justice Drake in Victoria. It was a  case in which Alderman. Langley was  asked in a friendly way to defend his  right to his seat. ��� Th decision follows:  "The plaintiff in this action sues  for penalties alleged to be incurred by  the defendant for sitting and voting as  an alderman of the city of Victoria  without being duly qualified. The  facts admitted are that the defendant  was nominated for alderman for the  South ward of the city on the 9th of  January, and was declared by the returning officer duly; elected on the 12th  of January. That the defendant was  registered owner as a tenant in common in equal shares of property in the  city of the assessed value of $1,800,  and had been so registered for a period  of six months previous to the nomination day. That a mortg-age was  registered against the said property  for "51,000, which was paid off on the'  4rd of January, 1899, but the mortgage  wtts not cancelled in the land registry  office until the 13th of January.  " The first point to be considered is  to be attached to section 13 sub-section  (b), defining the qualifications of an  alderman. He is to be of full age and  not disqualified under any law. These  statutory disqualification's are contained in section 19, and it is.admitted  that the defendant does not come  within-any of the disqualifications there  mentioned. Then he is to have been  registered for six months next preceding the day of nemination as the owner  of land, or real property,in_ the land  registry office of the value, as^appears  by the" municipal assessment roll, of  $500 over and above any registered incumbrance or charge.       :-  "Mr. Walls contends that:if during*  the period of six months preceding- the  nomination day any incumbrance is  registered ag*ainst the property reducing the va*[ue to a sum less than $500,  the candidate is not duly qualified.  On the other hand, Mr. Peters argues  that the clause is to be read as relating to the registration of ownership  for the next six months, that as long  as no incumbrance is existing* on the  nomination day, there is no disqualification.  " I think the true meaning*, of the  section lis that the candidate , has to  show a clear unincumbered value of  $500 for the whole period of six months.  Mr. Peters urged that he could show-  that the incumbrance was in fact an  incumbrance effected by the co-owner,  and the money used for her .benefit  only, but this contention cannot override the mortgage, which was a mortg-age of the whole lot granted by both  the owners to secure the sum of $1,000  and interest. It matters not what became of the money or by whom it was  borrowed. The framers of the statute  appear to have had this object in view,  that an alderman should be is possession of property, here of a very trifling  amount, clearly show that he was not  an insolvent, but had such an interest'  iu the municipality as would tend  to a careful administration of municipal duties. '  J:  ^^X  OF EVERY  DESCRIPTION.  Always on hand, a full line of  Ledgers, Journals, Cash Books,  Record Books, Memos, Diaries,  Hotel Registers, etc,  **"-     &���     &���  .*%�����     %*     W  SMITH   &   McRAE,  Books, Statioueiy, Wallpaper, Notions  and Fancy Goods,  GREENWOOD,     B.O.  "The next'point  taken  is  that section  20, which   imposes   a  penalty  of  $50 for each time a  mayor or alderman  who is disqualified sits'and votes, does  not, according to the! true meaning of  that section, impose a  penalty in the .  present instance, as  the person has to'  be declared  to   be disqualified  before  the -penalty can  attach.,   The   short-  answer is that the statute declares the  incapacity, and  when  that exists the  penalty   attaches   if   the   improperly  elected candidate sits and votes.    It is  admitted that the election has not been  questioned within the  period of thirty  days mentioned1 in  section 86, of cap.  68, for   the purpose of declaring the  seat   vacant.     That   section   enables  any voter to present  a  petition praying* that ah  election  may  be avoided  on   the   grounds   therein    mentioned  amongst  others,   not    possessing  the  necessary property qualification or being under some disqualification.    The  petition had to be  filed  within  thirty  days from the election, or from  the  date when such disqualification arose,  and no writ of quo warranto shall issue  after   the   expiration   of   thirty days  from the declaration of  the  returning*  officer.   This  indicates  that  the  proceeding b^*  quo warranto  is  only applicable to the case of an invalid election, and not to the case where the disqualification arose subsequently.    But  it appears to me that proceedings under this section are not  the only mode  avoiding an election.     Section  20 of  cap 144 points out an   additional mode.  The two sections contained as they are  in different acts can be  read together,  and do not conflict.  "Section 20 is. rather obscure, as it  does not define by whom the disqualification is to be ascertained, it says:  'Any person who is disqualified by the  preceding section,' the,defendant is  not one of those persons, 'or who shall  -��� be declared'lucupitble of beii.'^eiected.'  I think that means declared 'by the  statute to be ineligible by not possess,  ing the necessary property qualification or so declared by some judgment  of a court of competent jurisdiction,  'his election and return shall be null  and void, and if he sits and votes he  shall incur a penalty of $50 for each  time he so sits and votes.' The statute  avoids the election not the court, the  court deals with the penalty; it is to  be noted that if the proceedings are  taken under section 86, of cap. 68 they  are to be taken within thirty days, but  if the proceedings are taken under  section 20 of cap. 144 there is no limit  to the time mentioned in the act; the  procedings would therefore be governed  by sec. 3 and 4, William IV, cap 42.  " I therefore give judgment for the  plaintiff for the sum of $50 and costs."  ^f??ffnm!?fnH?f??n?mnH!?n?mmn????n?mn?mmmmmH!mfnHHUH?HHnn?mmnH!?n^  ^^  BOUNDARY   FALLS   POWER   SOLO.  A Syndicate Has Purchased the Charter and  Assets of the Company.  On Saturday Mr. Hector McRae and  and his solicitor, Mr. C. R. Hamilton,  arrived from Rossland. The object of  their visit was to close the negotiations in connection with the purchase  of the Boundary Falls water power  and the other assets of the Greenwood  Water Power company. The deal was  closed and the first payment made..  The price has not been made public,  but it is understood to be in the neighborhood of $15,000.  Mr. McRae represents a strong syndicate, whose intention is to install a  large plant at the Falls and generate  electricity for light and power purposes. The Greenwood Water. Power  and Light company was incorporated  by a provincial act during 1897. It se-  secttred right to^he power at Boundary Falls and also water rights in the  different creeks, but the latter rights  have since been handed over to the  city by the company. At Boundary  Falls a dam has been constructed  about 150 feet above the falls. The  dam is 30 feet high. It is made of  strong timbers filled witli rock. The  work was carried on under the superintendence of A. M. Rice and is  securely built.  The new owners have already given  an earnest of their intention to immediately utilize the power. Their  solicitors, Messrs. Pringle *& Whiteside, are making application to the  city council for permission to erect  poles and string wires and to use all  other necessary provisions for .supplying the city with electricity for power  and light purposes. In their application the company state that they arc  prepared to l��e/iu work iminedi.-itely. THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  /     H.   HALLETT.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH   8, IS')'*.  THAT SUBSIDY.  The Vernon News is unduly worried  about the action of parliament iu  withdrawing the subsidy for the road  from Penticton to Boundary Creek.  The News and other food residents of  Vernon have been sufficiently interested in railway. projects of the past  and have so anxiously watched for  the construction that never came,  ���that they ouyht to have learnt by this  time that the frriintiiifr of subsidies to  eiicourag-e charteriiiong*ers does not  hasten the construction of much-  needed railways. TheTi.MKSisstrong*ly  of the opinion that if no subsidies had .  been offered in the province more railways would have.been built. A promised  subsidy is the chartermonjrer's capital.  He lives upon it. It {jives him strength  If) lobby and obstruct the carrying* out  uf legitimate railway enterprises. The  action of the legislature teaches the  professional tail way promoters a salutary lesson. The News need not be  -ilarmed about delaying  the  construc  tion of a railway connecting* ��� the rich,  Okaiiagan with the richer mineral  region of the south. It is quite true  that one of the conditions under which  the old subsidy was granted was that  construction should beg*in at Penticton. The circumstances have changed  since then. It will be much easier to  continue construction from the end of  the Robson-Boundary Creek road. The  construction plants will be here and  supplies can be brought direct by rail.  We believe Vernon will have railway  connection with the south much more  quickly under  the , new   arrangement.  PROPER   QUALIFICATIONS.  PKO.i'i.ii'may  honestly differ regarding*   the best  methods of conducting  civic affairs.    It  would be a very poor  sign, indeed, if so little  interest were  taken in public  matters   that  no criticism of the  acts of public  men   were  offered.    So   far   as   the approaching  bye-election is concerned, there is however   one  question , upon   which   there  should be a unanimity of opinion, and  that is the question of candidates having   the  necessary   qualifications.    It  cannot help the  interests  of any  one  and cannot  but  hurt the  interests of  the city to  place   men   in  nomination  who  have   not   the   qualifications  required by  law.    No candidate  who is  not so qualified  will  be  allowed to retain his seat if elected.    To repeat the  fiasco in connection  with   the general  election can  only  bring  the  city into  disrepute.  THE  CORBIN CHARTER.  The good work of wiping out last  year's bad resolutions is still going on.  When the application for the Corbin  charter was made last yeai\ the board'  of trade in Victoria placed itself on -  record against the charter. This year,  her citizens are determined to make  amends for the folly of last winter,  and are taking* steps to show their en-  dorsation of the charter. The city  council even unanimously , passed a  resolution urging parliament to grant  the charter.  Kerby's Map of Wellington Camp.

A. in Greenwood'.  ���>������ Mr. James Anderson, the manag-er  of the local branch of the Bank of  British North America, left for Rossland on Monday. His successor, Mr;  P. T. Short, formerly manag*er of'the  Ashcroft branch, arrived on Friday,  accompanied by Mrs. Short.  During* his residence here, Mr. Anderson made a host of personal friends  ..as.well as many-for the institution  with which he is connected. There is  g*enerai regret expressed at his- departure. Mr; Anderson reciprocates  this.feeling*. He liked Greenwood and  the Greenwood people. Those who  control the destinies of a big* institu--  tion like a chartered bank are usually  reticent about making* public their  affairs, but it would not be surprising*  if the Bank of British North America  is contemplating* another rapid movement in the shape of opening a branch  in some new field, and they want  "Jimmy" Anderson to lead the way  in the undertaking.  LIQUOR   LICENSE   AMENDMENTS.  Some Drastic Changes In the Law Regulating  Liquor Licenses.  During* .the recent session of the  legislature, an amendment- was made  to the liquor act, which is to the effect  that the license is. the property of the  licensee and not the hotel or saloon.  Hon. Mr. Martin, in moving' the  second reading* of the measure, said  that althoug-h the bill was short, it was  very important. Some years ag*o the  law had been changed so that in some  portions of the province the license,  although obtained by the licensee, belongs to the landlord. He did not  think this system applied in any part  of Canada except in. some portion's of  the Province of British Columbia. It  did apply iu Victoria . and. Nanaimo,  althoug*h not in some portions of the  province. He -could not believe there,  was any property in a license except  so far as it was personal -for the  licensee. The general law provided  that .persons who apply- for a liquor  license must g*et the consent of a certain' percentag-e of the number .of  -owners of property /in the block in  which the property to which the license  applies is situated. That consent is,  generally speaking-, g-iven or withheld,  according* to the character of the man  who applies for the license. He would  . not say it was not also sometimes due  to the character of the building in  which the business was to be carried  on, but that was incidental, and a  matter which is always considered by :  the license commissioners. It had  been suggested that a man might build  a fine hotel, and after the licensee receiving a license the value of the  building would be lost by the removal  of the license. There was, however,  in his opinion no danger of that, as  the license commissioners would undoubtedly decide in favor of the landlord of the hotel premises, but the injustice existed in allowing a man who :  had a place not well ' suited for an  hotel, which was practically., only a  saloon, having his tenant under his  control, because no matter how unfair  a man might be, he had the .license in  his hands. It was therefore proposed  to make 1he law similar to that in other  parts of Canada. The law was a  reasonable law���that he was to have  the privilege of applying to the license  commissioners to remove that license  to other premtses, subject to the consent of the property holders in the  new location, and to. the license commissioners, the interest of the public  being protected by the commissioners.  He could see no reason why A, B or C,  who had a property not' exactly suited  for a hotel, and which  was practically  only a store, should have a special  value attached to that property because it had a liquor license; That.  was a state of things protested against  by everyone connected with the business. -:   .  The following amendment, moved  by Mr: A! W. Smith, was adopted. It  applies to all licensed houses :  "Every holder of a retail liquor  license who allows the gambling games  known as draw poker, stud'poker,  black jack, faro, or any other games  of chance to be played for money, or  for checks, or other devices that represent mone3r, in or. on, any part of his  premises to which the guests and public have access is guilty of an offence,  and liable, on summary^ conviction  before a county court judge, stipendiary magistrate or two justices of the  peace, to a penalty not exceeding one  hundred dollars nor .less than twenty  dollars for the first offence, and ;not  exceeding two hundred dollars jior less  than oneJhundred dollars for the second  offence, and-in default of payment to  imprisonment for ��� a term: riot exceeding three months, and in case of the  holder of a retail, liquor license being  convicted a third time the license to be  cancelled." .'.':        .     .   ...'".     .-   ---:Ir  Establish Eii 1.S62.
