H.1 P.  Clement representedJhe.prisonar.^The  only witness heard was J. K. Johnson,  police magistrate at Grand Forks. Ju  his cross-examination it was brought  out that the police magistrate had pre-  vioustq'the'completion of the prelim-'  inary trial/of the ''Blue Goose"charged:  with; procuring,: admitted .her; to bail,  which was fixed at $500, herself in ��250  and another prostitute in $250, Afterwards Taylor; was,engaged as a special  constable to 'watch |the:-';,Biue Gbo'se"  although she was_ still out,onwbail���and  while thus watched she skipped out to  the other side. The learned judge  pointed outthat woman was free to go  anywhere so long as the bail bond was  i ti effect and consequently there was  no offence in,Taylor's allowing her,to  escape.' He directed the -petit jury to.  .bring in a verdict of not guilty which  was done. All the"other"prisoners  having, escaped this , concluded the  the criminal cases. The learned judge  again directed attention to the numerous escapes of prisoners and expressed;  the hope that Hie grand jury.would  further investigate the matter. :'" ; '  ' Mr. Whiteside as representative of  the crown also deprecated the -numerous escapes aud referred to previous  cases in which prisone'r'sgot away fro withe city lockup. He'also criticized the  fact that not sufficient effort was made  to capture the slayer of an .Italian  murdered iu:Greeiiwo.od;tM"oy.ears'ago:.  ���The learned judge said there must be  something wrong when so many prisoners escape and a rigid .invesligation  was necessary. ' _  V  ���An   adjournment   was* theiTTtaKHT  until three o'clock  in   the    afternoon  when the grand-jury -made the^ following presentment :' .-*"  May it P^kasic Youtt Lordship : ?>y  -   We, the grand jury,   respectfully extend, to yon a cordial welcome to Gcef.n.-  wood ..on   this   your   first yisit to-^Uie  ���Boundary districtof British Columbia,  and we hope that during your stay,  short though it must necessarily be.  you will find opportunities :'for renewing old, friendships and: making new  ones', so that you will take away with  you pleasant recollections of your visit.  We trust, too, that you will become  favorably impressed with the extent  ami value of the mining and smelting  industries ofthe district, and that vou  will find the claim of Greenwood to be  the most central'and important town  in the Boundary, Situate as it is about  midway between Cascade ,on,,t!ie cast  and Camp McKinney on the west, and  having as its tributary sources of business not only the surrounding   mining  ' camps but the lie wer West Fork* of  Kettle Kiver country with its big potentialities for production and population, to be well grounded.  Before inviting your attention to the  very considerable progress in the direction of developing its staple industries the district general has made,  especially during the two years past,  and. as well to several pressing- needs  of this town in particular, we desire to  express to you the sincere pleasure it  afforded us to be privileged lo listen to  the interesting reminiscences of your  personal association with the early  stages of mining in this province you  were good enough to favor us with on  the occasion .of the opening 'of this  court, and our earnest appreciation  of the kindly and felicitous sentiments  to_which you gave utterance in your  sympathetic references, to the vicissitudes and the sterling worth of the  old-time prospectors some  members of  which class of hardy pibneers we rejoice to still have among-us. We have,  further, -to note with much gratifica-  iioh.your'congratulatory observations  upon the comparative freedom of this  cityJrom serious crime as evidenced by  there not being a single indictment  from Greenwood, among tlie number  that your judicial duties have required  you '...to present ,to us for our consideration.  ���As your lordship is perhaps aware  the history of mining in the-Boundary  dales .from the early sixties, when  .numerous, placer, miners turned -their  attention, to Rock Creek and afterwards to Boundary Creek.! It was not  until 1886, though, that mineral claims  were located in the district for the par-  pose of lode mining. During the next  teii years progress was very slow, the  isolation of the district with the accompanying absence of transportation  facilities proving a serious obstacle to  development. In 1895 the town of  Green wood was started and two years  -laicr what are -now the -biggest mines  in the district���the Old Ironsides and  Knob Hill and the Mother Lode���had  been sufficiently opened up to effectively demonstrate that in them were  enormous pre bodies amply warranting  the outlay of much, capital to turn  them to profitable account. In the  summer of 1898 the CanadiaiiPacific  Railway company commenced the construction'of its Columbia and Western  Railway and iu the fall of the following yepr the tracklayers reached Greenwood. Thereafter progress was rapid.  The Granby : company's smelter was  "completed dud in operation by August,  1900, and six months later the Greeu-  wood smelter was started up.' During  1900 the aggregate tonnage of . ore  shipped by district mines was. 97,837  tons; in 1901 it was 386,675 tons, and  already this year shipments have ex-  eeededJZOO,,000 tons, making   the grand  total to date about 685,000 tons of ore,  most of which has been treated at district smelters, aud with preparations  being actively made for largely increasing the output of the mines during the remainder of the year.  In the early stages of this development, which has now asumed proportions of considerable magnitude, a  praiseworthy spirit of self-help was  manifested by residents of Greenwood  and vicinity. They lirst constructed  largely at llieir own expense, wagon  roads and trails to connect surrounding  milling camps with the town, aud later  the townspeople secured incorporation  of the town and then taxed themselves  to provide means for carrying out the  extensive public works that gave  the town tlie improved appearance it  has today. But wilh the present largely increased population ihe need for  suitable public buildings becomes more  urgent', and it i.s to the more pressing  ol" these requirements the grand jury  today respectfully directs your lordship's attention and request that you  will impress" upon the proper authorities tlie real necessity th.it exists for  prompt action, so that adequate accommodation . may, without further  delay, be provided, especially for  public school purposes, the safe and  convenient conduct of government  business by the resident officials, aud  for the proper administration of  justice.  The grand jury finds this town to be  in the disadvantageous position of be-  iug without its own school buildings.  The circumstances that led up to this  very undesirable state of affairs are  well known to the education department which appears thus far to have  been slow to take action to remedy it.  The rented premises in which the  Greenwood public school (at present  closed by reason of the existence  among- some of the pupils of an infectious sickness) are both insufficient  ly lighted aud badly ventilated. The  school trustees have long beeu. most  persistent in their efforts to obtain a  liberal appropriation for a suitable  school house, and the grand jury desires to fully endorse the claim of the  trustees that Greenwood in the matter  ot au appropriation for such a building is in justice entitled to be placed  on a similarly favourable basis to  Grand Forks and other towns that  have already received ample assistance  from the government in this direction.  Upon enquiry from the registrar the  grand jury has ascertained that the  Greenwood supreme court registry was  established Lu May, 1900, and that  there were in that year 25 supreme  court causes, 56 in !9<)1, and a proportionate number during the expired  portion of the current year. In 1900  there . were 222 county . court plaints,  and 2li in 1.901, and an average num-  ���ber. to date iu this year. This comparatively large. amount of court  business has had to be conducted under  inconvenient conditions. The need  that exists for the erection of a court  house at Greenwood has already beeu  recognized by the government which  announced its intention to place on  the estimates a sum of money to provide this public convenience, . The  grand jury-, though' thinking "it unlikely the government can be aware of  the utterly inadequate accomodation  for the several officials employed in  the local office, the entire absence of  provision ft>r the privacy that is desirable in the transaction- of much of  the business, arid the unprotecued  state of -..important public records and  documents, iin the small building now  used as the government office and lockup. This building is inconveniently  situated away from the business part  of the town. It was built years ago  for the purposes of a police office and  and lock-up. Its dimensions are 20  feet by 38 feet over all and it is subdivided into a 20 by 20 office, 12 by 16  guard room', and two 8 by' 8 cells. Into  the office part are crowded four officials,  viz. the the provincial government  agent, who also holds the offices of  registrar of the courts, gold commissioner, mining recorder, and other  important appointments,) the deputy  mining recorder and constable, the  deputy' sheriff, and a clerk, together  with their several desks and other requisite office furniture. In this crowded compartment the county court judge  holds chambers, and supreme court ex-  aminatious are conducted, and whilst  such   business is   iu progress the gen  eral public freely exercises its~riglit of"  access to the same small office to there  transact business connected with one  or other of the~several public department whose local work is centered  here. There is not nearly enough room  in the lire proof safes for all the important records and papers, many of  them relating to titles, consequently  some of these are exposed to the risk  of damage or destruction. The lack  of room elsewhere in the building necessitates the using of the cells in  which to store new books, forms and'  other stationery, thus compelling the  provincial police to at times avail  themselves of the courtesy of the city  officials ami use Uie lock-up when they  have prisoners, iu their custody. As a  the administration of justice i.s in dan-1  ger of being interfered with, for as  happened last week, prisoners have escaped and the ends of justice have  thus been defeated.  For these and other cogent reasons,  the grand  jury respectfully submits to  the  proper  authorities   through   your  lordship   tbe  urgency of au immediate  commencement  being . made   with tlie  erection   of    a   government    building  affording suitable accomodation forthe  convenient transaction of the business  above   mentioned,  and   especially   for  the protection from destruction by lire  of records aud documents, the loss of  which   might in voive'very serious consequences   to .innocent  parties in connection   with  their titles   to   mineral j  claims,  etc.      As   bearing   upon    the  question  of  the just claim Greenwood  has to the provision of proper building  accomodation   it   may  be pointed  out  that  the receipts  at the local government office from all sources during the  the three years  1899,   1900, 1901, were  $66,256.40,   and   there   were in addition  revenue large in the aggregate paid to  the government  through other channels  from assessed taxes on land, preemption and  purchase of lands, pro  vincal revenue tax, trade and liquor  licence fees, timber dues, ore tax, and  other sources of provincial revenue.  Another, matter" which it is desired to  bring to the notice of the^ provincial  government is the inconvenience inseparable from hiving one offiicial  hoid so many and various offices. The  high reputation the local government  agent, registrar, etc. Mr. Wm. G. McMynn, deservedly enjoys as a, zealous  aud thoroughly competent offiicial will  not in any way be detracted from iu  thus representing that it is not possible  for auy one person to satisfactorily  perform, with due regard to the public  convenience, the: multifarious duties  that devolve upon him. For instance,  when road making or otheJ public  work is in progress miles from town it  is necessary that the government  agent leave his office in order that he  may personally satisfy himself that  moneys are being j udiciously expended.  In his temporary absence front his  office delays necessarily occur in the  transaction of mining and ��� other  business which can not be delegated to  another. It is therefore submitted  that Mr. McMynn might be relieved at  any rate of the office of mining recorder by the'appointment to that position  of the present deputy, thereby facilitating the transaction of record and  other mining business and that without adding to the expenses of the  office.  Wishing your lordship long life and  continued usefulness, the grand jury  respeotfully submits for yourcousider-  at;on this their presentment.  G. Arthur RENourj, Foreman.  , His lordship made a happy reply.  He thanked the grand jury forthe  complimentary references to himself  and congratulated them upon the very-  able presentment which they had  made. He promised to bring their representations to the notice of the proper authorities and closed by saying  he was particularly struck by the personnel of the jury. The city and  district that had men of their stamp  was bound to prosper.  BBDA.ltD VS  DISTSMOKK.  On Tuesday evidence was heard- in  the case of Bedard vs Dinsmore. The  jury selected was L,. B. Hodge (foreman), Duncan Currie, Walter Water-  laud, J. li. Lowery, J. T- Williams,  George Maynard, Joseph Williamhurst,  A; S. Einbree. W. H. P. Clement appeared for the plaintiff and- A. C.  Siittori for Dinsmore. From the evidence it appeared that the case ongin-  "atecfouTo f 'slander du~s~ riimors'fespect-  ing Rev. Father Bedard. A rumor  started somewhere to the effect that  Father Bedard was the means of  seperating Dan Rice and his wife, two  of the priest's parishoners in Grand  Forks and that the father was intimate  with Mrs. Rice. Father Bedard made  an effort to trace the slander to its  source. He found chat it travelled  among the women of Grand Forks and  beginning at a definite person he  traced it through several mesdames  until he came to Mrs. Willi.un Dins-  uioie, the wife of an old shoemaker.  Mr. Dinsmore told the priest that so  far as his wife was concerned all she  knew he had told her and that he had  only repeated what he had heard on  the street. Father Bedard then ollVred  to relieve Dinsmore of any responsibility in the matter if lie would give  thepriost his informant but this Dins-j  more persistently refused lo do. Thej  rcyereiie'i father then liad awrit issued against Dinsmore for slander  and the jury trial was tlie result.  Several witnesses were called confirming the outline given above and  the defendent in the box admitted  having repeated certain statements  but not what lie was charged with.  The learned judge said it was a case  that never should have reached court  and he blamed Dinsmore's solicitor for  having allowed his client to force the  proceedings. He should have given  his authority for the slander and  apoligiz-xl to the father.  Mr. Clement made a forcible address  to the jury.     He said  they  were   not  anxious  to  punish  the   old   man   but  since   he absolutately   refused   to give  liis authority the priest who t>ad taken  the   strictest   vows   of    celibacy   and  chastity was forced to take proceedings  i to clear his character.     He did not ask  I for large damages,   all  he did ask for  | was a finding that   would punish the  i defendant for his foolish course.  The learned judge was brief but  pointed iu his address to the jury.  "We have here" he said "a poor priest  who has probably nothing but his  reputation. He should be given redress." He advised the jury that they  could bring in a verdict for S5, 310 or  S50.  Mr. Clement : My lord will you  advise the jury that there is no limit.  The learned judge said he would say  no more and the jury retired. Court  was then adjourned until two o'clock  when tne jury found the defendent  Dinsmore- liable and brought in a  verdict of $50.  Court then adjourned until Thursday  morning.  MC KENZIE VS  KNOB HIT,!,  This was a case in which R. D.  McKenzie sued the Knob Hill company  for 85,000 damages because of loss of  an eye and other injuries while working in the company's mine. J. R.  Brown appeared for the plaintiff and  J. A. McDonald of Rossland for the  defendant company. The following  jnry were selected : C. N. Collins,  (foreman), G. F. Williams, J. M. Humphrey, D. Manchester, Angus McDonald, Kenneth McKenzie, W. A.  Mitchell, E. W. Bishop.  Mr. Brown briefly outlined the tacts  in the case and called the plaintiff who  said he had been a miner for four or  five years and had worked in the Knob  Hill mine for six months. He was injured in the company's mine. While  he and his partner Kairns were drilling .an explosion occurred through  which he lost his left eye, the partial  hearing of his left car and his face  was badly disfigured. John Pearsc  the shift boss showed them where to  drill. They had not been in the stope  for a month previous and were not  notified that there was a missed hole  there., He and his partner made a  careful examination of the ground  previous to drilling but found no missed holes. Previous to the .accident  there appeared to be no system of  notifying miners of missed holes.  Sometimes the shift boss notified them  and sometimes not. He told of the  cost of treatment in, the hospital at  Spokaneand bther'expenses. "A severe  cross-examination by Mr. McDonald  did not materially alfect his story.  Thos. Kairns was a miner for 16  years. He worked in the Knob Hill in  |900 and 1901. He was a partner of  McKenzie in working iu the mine.  When the explosion occured he was  out getting some steel and was about  tliir.ty'-,yards.;iway_.\vhen^the^exi)Jo^ion_^  occured. He told of Pierce coming to  tell McKenzie and himself to go to  No. 1 drift and telling them where to  set up the machine and drill the holes.  There was a knob of ore there that"  Pierce wanted taken out. The drift  was clear of muck when they went in  there. They wouldn't have drilled as  they did only for the shift boss. He  wanted the knob taken out that way to  save the timbers by blasting the ore  away from the timbers. He believed  the explosion was caused by running  into a cut off hole or missed hole, They  had always looked for missed holes and  this time looked all round for a missed  hole but couldn't lind any. There was  no system of reporting- missed holes.  Sometimes they reported the holes and  sometimes did not. After the McKenzie accident they counted the  number of explosions.  Cross-examined by Mr. McDonald,  Mr. Kairns said that Pea ree told them  wliere to driil their holes. He iiad  looked around a whole lot for missed  holes. If he had been told that there  was a missed hole there, he wouldn't  have drilled as he did.  Alexander McDonald the next witness had worked in the Knob Hill  mine from 1900 until about a week ago.  He was working a machine in the  mine when McKenzie was injured.  There was no system of warning  against missed holes until McKenzie.  was hurt. After he was hurt the  missed holes were reported by the  shift boss to the men when going on  shift. As many as 100 holes at a time  were fired in the Knob Hill. It was  difficult to keep track of this number  of explosions. He had reported missed  holes which were not afterwards re-  exploded although that was supposed  to be the rule of the mine.  William Neeson,  the  next witness,  said   that he bad  fired the holes pre-  {Coiitiiiucd on pairs 6.) THE    BOUNDARY   CREEK TIMES.  O       *��  Srasu?

C.     4��  -Sx  f\ THE   BOUNDAEY   CREEK   TIMES  West Fork Notes  This district has experienced a  freshet during the past week, that has  been unequaled since the big flood of  ���94. The West Fork was howling and  Beaver creek was higher than the oldest resident had ever seen. Carmi and  Wilson creeks were also trying hard  to establish new records, the latter  being so high that progress towards  China creek was stopped for several  days, and parties bound thitherward  to do assessment work were delayed in  consequence.  Carmi was visited last week by a  party of strangers who, in company  with Messrs. Jas. Kerr and Robt. Kerr,  came to make an examination of the  Butcher Boy, on which property a deal  has been pending for sometime. The  . financial agent who was negotiating  the deal between the owners, Messrs.  Jas. Kerr and James Dale, and the  parties who were purchasing was Mrf  Argo of St Paul. Mr. Argo brought  with him this time a couple of mining  experts. The shaft was unwatered in  seven shifts, by means of the whim  with which the mine was equipped.  A thorough examination was made,  and it is to be hoped their report will  be satisfactory. The full terms of the  deal have'not yet been made public,  but it is understood that the vendors  have given lioeral terms, and that two  other claims, the May , and the No 2  fraction are being included. The  party left Carmi again on Sunday  morning 18th. inst.  The opening of a deputy mining  recorder's office at Beaverdell is prov-  a great convenience to prospectors in  this district. With only a weekly mail  service, the tenure of claims that had  been allowed to run to near the limit  of time was rather precarious, but all  that is now avoided and the long tramp  to Greenwood to save them in tne nick,  of time is no longer a necessity. t  Some of the trips made by the mail,  carrier Mr. D., O. McKay, during the  prevelance of high water, show that  the job is no sinecure. On one occasion,  he had to swim his saddle horse,  breasting floating logs out of the way.  Thisjwas on the high water trail which  was evidently so called because high  water pants are considered a necessary  part of the costume. Billy Mulock  should state in the posters calling for  tenders for the mail contract that none  but Ihe amphibious need apply.  New goods  at   reduced   prices   at  Mitchalls.  REWARD.

Successful  Celebration was  Held in Greenwood.  Wsre  Delimited With Their  Day's  Outincr 1n the Metropolis.  A perfect day, a larg-e and  pleasure ieekiiiff crowd and a good programme, of sports, all combined to  make the Victoria day celebration at  Greenwood one of the most successful  ever held in the Boundary country.  The big excursion train was an hour  and a half late, and did not reach here  until nearly eleven o'clock./ But she  had a jolly crowd aboard. Grand  Forks sent a big- delegation which was  headed by Mayor Holland. Included  in the train were two of the handsome  coaches of the Kettle River Valley  lines which Mayor Holland had kindly  placed at the disposal of tlie excursionists. The visitors from Grand Forks  also brougth the citizens band  who discoursed spirited music during  the day. This and other courtesies on  the part of the good people of the gateway city were greatly appreciated by  Greenwood. When Dominion Day  comes around Greenwood will double  the size of the return delegations  and will also take with them a  a band that will demonstrate that  music can be acquired without the  same favorable environments that are  to be found at Grand Forks.  The horse races at the recreation  grounds was not witnessed by a very  large crowd, on account of the late arrival of train, and the necessity of having the races in the morning so as to  complete the programme of sports in  ore day.. Those who wese present  had plenty of excitement. Some of  the horses speedy, while others made  up for lack of swiftiiessi by knowing  their riders, and thus contributed their  fair share to the entertainment.  The chief interest was evinced in  the hose contest. The crack War  Eagle team was over from Rossland.  Grand Forks boys had plenty of backers and the Mother Lode team had  their own coterie of enthusiastic supporters. In the hub and hub race, the  Greenwood boys were backed by the  home people and they did not disappoint them. Three teams entered  this race, Rossland, Grand Forks and  -Green wood.-���-The���Greenwood���teanr  practically distanced the other two  although having only 5 men on the  reel while Grand Forks had 9 and the  other eight. In this connection it may'  stated that while the Rossland boys  were gentlemen^ and true sportsmen,  the reportgiven in the Rossland Miner  of their feats of valor in Greenwood  was somewhat exaggerated. They  were never in the hub and hub race  from the start and it was Greenwood's  Mitchell, not Rossland's that won the  foot races.  But the Rossland boys covered tliem-  selves with glory in the wet test.  They were first and only team to turn  in water. Their time was 27#seconds.  Greenwood, Grand Forks, aud the  Motner Lode all came down to the  hydrant in recordj breakitig time, but  they failed to get water, badly >rattled,  men and a stubborn connection accounted for the trouble.  The base ball match at the grounds  in the afternoon was about as ragged  exhibition of the popular game as could  be witnessed. The Grand Forks pitcher  was a whirlwind that Greenwood couldn't find, he was well supported by the  catcher and the field. On the other  hand, the Greenwood team went to  pieces at the start, and it was only towards the end of the game that they  got themselves together. The score  was 8 to 2 in favor of the visitors.  One of the best events of the day was  the hill climing contest. Only two,  J. B. Morgan and Peter Lover tried  conclusions with the bold front that  Jubilee mountain presents. Both  started easily from the corner of Copper and Greenwood street, crossed the  railway track and began taking the  mountain. Lover took the front and  waa in view all the time, while Morgan  glided behind taking the longer but  easier grade at rear, That his judgement was good was shown by the fact  that he reached the summit several  seconds a head of his opponent and he  lose no time in returning. The trip  was made in less that -12 minutes,  whice is considered remarkable time.  He keeps for this year the trophy presented byj Mr. L. B. Hodge and owns  the medal presented by Geo. Miller.  Mr. Lover was the winner ofthe medal  presented by W. E. Anderson.  The tug of war was won by the smelter team. Their opponents were men  from the No. 7 mine. The contest  was keen but the smelter giants were  victorious.  Among the principal events in the  small sports were the 100 yard race,  1st F. J. Mitchell. 2nd. C. Wilson.  220 yard race 1st F. J. Mitchel. 2nd D.  Munroe, Phoenix. Putting 16 pound  shot 1st. M.'P. Oneill, 2nd. J. Faulds,  Bycicle race 1st, E. Dill, 2nd F. J.  Mitchell, and J. A.�� Russell a close  third.

Whatever is done on the previous shift is written on a printed  form and hung in the shift boss'  oflice so that miners going on shift  could see what had happened. He  had never worked in a large mine  . where a verbal system was used.  Cross-examined, Mr. Hutchins saici  that men often- get careless and did  not look at the report in the shift boss'  office. The Knob Hill system might  prove effective if properly  carried out.  Duncan Martin was working at present at the Sunset mine. He explained  the system of reporting missed holes  at that time. The report is posted np  on the door where the miners go before going down in the mine. He had  worked in the Knob Hill. Ht considered the written report the only safe  system in large mines. The verbal  system can't be carried. He considered the system at the Knob Hill a very  poor one.  Cross-examined, he said he was glad  to be discharged from the Knob Hill,  He was there only one shift and saw no  system there.  This closed the case for the plaintiff  Mr. McDonald said he would formally  ask . for a non-suit after his defence  went in.  The lirst witness for the defence was  John Pearse. He was shift boss audi  ���would" swear -positively- that���he -had f  never directed McKenzie and Kairns;  where to start their holes. He knew  nothing about the missed hole as he  was sick at the time that round was .;  fired. It was the miners' duty to examine the ground and they are so iin-  structed when they are engaged. He  thought the missed hole could have  been discovered at the lime of the accident,their system of reporting missed  holes  was   the notice   at the mouth of  HALLETT& SHAW  Bakkistkks, Solicitors,  Notaries Public.

A few days before the accident he cautioned McKenzie and his partner about the kind  of holes they were drilling. The blaster  had to make a shortage of blasts known  to the shift boss on his own shift.  There is no uniform system of reporting missed holes. It was all a matter  of opinion. He considered his system  the best. The real safeguard against  danger of missed holes is care on the  part of the men. No system of reporting missed holes is effective. It is  the duty of miners to remove water or  muck so that the examination for mis-  med holes could be throughly conducted. He always told the men that they  should take any time necessary to insure themselves   that   the   ground   is  safe. -       ������-.-,-- ..  ��� Pat Dermody, mine foreman, considered their system of missed holes a  good system. Every day he informed  the men as to their duties. 'Miners  should throughly examine the ground  before beginning to drill.  In answer to Mr. Brown he said that  there were a good many ..accidents in  the mine before McKenzie got hurt.  This closed the defence and Mr.  McDonald renewed his motion for a  ruling whether there was any  evidence to go to the jury.  His lordship said he didn't want to  take the  case out  of the hands of the  jury-  Mr. McDonald then addressed the  jury. His speech was a fair and logical presentation ot the case from the  company's point of view. He was  followed by Mr. Brown in a forcible  speech, dwelling on. all the points in  favor of his client. After a brief review of tne evidence by the learned  judge, the jury retired at 2:30 and remained out for over three hours. The)'  reported that six out of the eight jurymen found for the plaintiff and assessed damages at $2,500. Judgment  ment was given for this amount with  costs. The company will probably  appeal.  The court is being continued to-day  and as there are several ca^es to be  heard it   will  notbeconcluded; before  next week.  MINERAL ACT  Certificate of Improvements-  NO'lTCK.

They snid tlicy started where  they did because it was the easiest  place to start the drill, lie couldn't  remember that any change hud been  made in tho system after the accident.  Cross-examined Mr. Pearse said he  hadn't told them to drill a certain way  to save the timbers.  An adjournment was then taken  till   ten  o'clock   Wednesday   morning.  The trial was continued when the  court resumed its sittings at ten o'clock  Thursday nirming. Mr. McDonald  called Robert L,ansberg who was acting  a.s shift boss when Mr. Pearse was ill.  He was shift boss when .the round of  holes was blasted previous to McKenzie and partner going into the drift.  This round of holes was blasted two or  three days before accident occured.  -Neeson made no report to him of a  missed hole.  In answer to Mr. Brown he said the  timber was within ten or twelve feet  of the hump of ore which McKenzie  had to take out. It might have been  closer than that. There wasn't room  for another set of timbers.  William Yolen Williams, superintendent for the company was the nest  witness. He told of the precautions  taken in reference to missed holes.
