Two criminal aud four civil  cases made a f airly -full docket at  the sittings of the County* Court,  held in Greenwood before Judge  Brown on Tuesday and on Wednesday morning.  Lars Vestlund and Chas. Rine-  hart are at present in the care of  Recorder Cunningham at Government Building on the charge of  "assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm." Both have elected a speedy trial and will come  up again before-Judge Brown,  here on Monday next.  Both ca^es come from tbe  mountain city of.-'Sidley where  the color feeling is apparently  botb sharp and quick. Veslund,  who is a widely known and well  esteemed citizen of the mountain,  seems to have got into an. affray  with Tajah Singh, a Hindoo,  aud the charge is that he used a  knife on the dark brother. -  Rinehan's case is a 'similiar  one���stabbing. '.'The "object of  the assault iu this case is stated  to be George Deschenes, Rine-  hart got across the line but when  taken by the officers finally agreed  to come back to "stand his trial.  R. G. Sidley*. J.P., of Sidley,  took the preliminary hearing and  sent both men up for trial. C. J.  Leggatt, of Midway, appears in  both cases tor the accused.  The suit .of Mrs. Laura Arger-  singer v. R. G. Sidley held over  from last court because of a. mistake in the day on which court  was to be held by* the plaintiff,resulted "in5 a decision for the plaintiff for $150' with cost's while the  costs of the last court were to be  assessed against the costs of this  one. The dispute was as to whether the third year's rent of a four  year's lease of land had been paid.  Mrs! Argersinger's evidence was  clear that only the first, second  and fourth payments had been  made. Mr. Sidley while quite  sure that the third payment had  been made as well as the others,  had lost all his receipts and papers iu a fire and was not prepared  to swear definitely of the third  payment. The Judge accepted  Mrs. Argersinger's evidence and  gave judgment. J. D. Spence  appeared for plaintiff, I. H. Hallett for defendant.  The appeal of John Mulligan  from the decision of the Gold  Commissioner stopping the progress of certain work on Long  Lake which, it was claimed, interfered with the city's water ser-  -vice-was-held Qver-till-next-court.=  In Morley Ludlow v. Frank  Dalton, in which the. plaintiff  claimed $27 for board bill, .decision will be given on Monday.  The effort of the defence was to  show that iu the account of Ludlow who has a saloon near Eholt,  there were illegitimate items  such as bar bill and gaming debts  as well as board bill and that the  money paid by defendant on this  account was sufficient to meet all  legitimate charges and only these  are collectable. A. S. Black for  plaintiff; J. D. Speace for the  defendant;  Mrs. Mary Peterson v. Ola Lofstad, a dispute over the amount  of wages due Mrs. Peterson, was  settled out of court, each party  paying their own costs.  Thos. Hanson v. L. A. Smith  ���was carried forward to the next  court.  Governments   Policy   Good   if   Effective*  Orientals Must be Kept out*  THE SNOW  Meets Death Two   Hundred  Yards From iCamp���In  Great Pain.  u  IS  When the British Columbia members  lined up at Ottawa on Monday last in  support of the motion of Ralph Smith,  M. P. (Nauaiir.o) to show Canada where  this province stood on tne question of  Oriental immigration, the last charge  in the debate was fired by the member  for Yale-Cariboo, who spoke at some  length on the question. Mr. Ross reviewed tlie whole problem of Asiatic  immigration and pointed out the indifference displayed by the conservatives,  as it was not until' the liberals took  office that any decisive action was taken  looking to the restf^Etion of the evil.  He clearly outlined^dritish Columbia's  views on the subject, and incidentally  took occasion to give some facts and  figures of the wonderful resources of  the Pacific province and the opportunities it afforded for the profitable  settlement of a vast number of people  from the old land. A part of Mr. Ross'  address was as follows :  POSSIBILITIES   OF.B.. C.  With coal measures sufficient to supply the world for centuries, with the  greatest compact area of merchantable'  timber on the'American continent, with  mines which have, already produced  300,000,000'of dollars, and the mineral  area has scarcely . been touched, with  fisheries whose annual revenue is  $7,000,000 or $8,000,000, and which are  only in the initial stages of development, with agricultural and fruit lands  much more extensive than the mountainous character of the country would  indicate/and which offer compensation  for physical disadvantages by yielding  far more per acre than land anywhere  else in Canada, with millions of acres  of pulp wood, with petroleum deposits  whose extent cannoj;,yet be determined,  and with inexhaustible"-measures of  iron ore, all inviting capital and industry, with all these advantages, together  with a climate, which easily reaches  the white man's ideal, is it any wonder  that we, who live in British Columbia  and get enthused over its potentialities  and possibilities, should be anxious to  keep this province-for our own  race ?  LET US HAVE STRONG  WHITE  MEN  Let us develop it. Let us build up a  country from the Atlantic to the Pacific,  and people it, not with an unasslmila-  tive rabble of different-races and color,  but by strong white men, proud of the  country in which they live, and prouder  still, that under the Old Flag conditions  will be such as to enable them to maintain the land for themselves, their  children, and their children's children.  GOOD II' EFFECTIVE  The policy of this government in arranging with the governments of countries whence these people come, to keep  their people from coming here, is a satisfactory solution of the question, if  =such policy can be made effective, but  't'ffev=fiffis"f Ve kej��t"-'Sut^f^thls'cotftitryf  save in eKceptioaal cases, and then  upon our terms and conditions. Our  right  to   legislate, with this object in  view, without violating any international law. is unquestioned. Such  legislation has been passed, and carried  into effect in other self-governing  British countries. The most practical  measure is what is popularly known as  the "Natal Act," Such legislation assumes that the only desirable class of  immigrants are those which come from  Euiopcan countries, that the surest way  of determining whether they are from  aa European country or not, would be  their knowledge of the European  language, and they are subjected to  such test.  INDENTURE AND REPATRIATION  If the time comes when it is absolutely necessary to do a specific work,  and the required labor cannot be procured in this country, I would be in  favor.of bringing it' in under indenture  to do that speciffc work, such indenture  to end with repatriation. This course  should not be resorted to, unless abso  lutely necessary, and with the entire  elimination of the Oriental class, thus  elevating the dignity of. labor; it is  reasonably certain that it would then  be possible to secure an adequate supply  of labor for all purposes. But, someone asks, should we legislate against  British subjects? Why not? There  are,' on our statute books, today, laws-  which discriminate against people  who come from the shadow of Downing  sheet���laws which bar all those who  do not come up to a standard fixed by  ourselves���and why should not similar  laws be passed against those from Calcutta or Bombay ? .':���.  TRANSVAAI.   DID   IT  LIBERALS MEET.  In the case of the Tranavaal, the imperial government conceded the right  of the"government-'tlief-e"tb"pass legislation against British Indians and  placed its stamp of approval upon the  legislation. Under President Kruger  the Transvaal attempted to enforce restrictive legislation against Hindus.but  the British government objected, and  the subsequent representative of the  British Indian claims, subsequently  made before the British government,  stated that they had -'cherished the  anticipation that \he war had for one  of its main objects, the rescue of British  Indians from harsh treatment to which  they were subjected by the late Boer  republic."  After the war the government of the  Transvaal passed legislation far more  restrictive than that enforced by the  Boer republic, and on the advice of Sir  Arthur Lawley, lieutenant-governor of  the Transvaal, and Lord Milner, high  commissioner in Africa, the imperial  government refused to interfere with  the legislation of a self-governing  colony, and British Indians b:came  subjected to restrictive immigration  laws, in a British colony. If the  ^.Trausv.aal^withoBt-the-same-measure  of self-government that Canada enjoys,0  is allowed to pass such legislation,  Canada's right to pass similar legislation cannot be questioned  A peculiarly sad fatality occurred early yesterday (.Thursday) inorri'.-i)*- on the irail leading  up from Iii-.- Phoeuix road to the  Crescent min.-. J*ihn F. Kenni-  son, a mucker ;n Uie* mine, while  returning frotii Greeuwood, had  lain down in the snow and died.  Dr. Spankie, who examined the  body of ilie unfortunate man  after it had been brought to,  Greenwoor. stated that death was  the result of natural causes, heart  failure following a severe attack  of colic. The positiou of the  body aud internal evidence supported the supposition that the  deceased had been suffering great  pain.  Rennison was found about 8:30  o'clock b^ Superintendent Feeney  and a miner  named Coote, about  250 or 300  -: ards  from  the  mine  atad about 30 feet from  the trail.  A   mmer,  a  married man,   who  lives at the Last Chance but who  comes early to the mine  so  that  he may get his  breakfast, passed  up the trail about 6:30 and heard  a groaning which he thought   to  be    an    animal.      lie   remarked  this at   the  breakfast   table  and  when Rennison did  not   turn  up  for work. Superintendent Feeney  set out to investigate.  "The   deceased   left   the   mine  about4.30 Wednesdayaf ternoon to  come to Greenwood.   Here he got  the   mail   and   transacted  some  business at a number   of   stores.  The exact time  at  which he left  for the mine is not known. When  f ou nd the~bo"dy "was i t'i 1 f "warml" '''  Deceased was an Englishman,  and   Wednesday   was   his    33rd  birthday.    He was respected as a  sober,  industrious man.

"The Journalist as a Publie  Man," is the latest stab of the  Professor-Senator Albert J. Bever-  idge at th�� lax morals of public  life. This is the title of an  article in the Saturday Evening  Post in which Senator Beveridge  claims the. incorruptibilhj���yes,  even the fairmindedness, the  public as opposed to private spirit  of the press to be infinitely more  important than the purity of the  politician. The senator is right,  as he usually is, and it's up to  the people to demand add support  the newspaper that is devoted to  the best interests of the community aad country rather than  the biased, purchased, advocate  of certain sectional or personal  interests. The people are always  the doctors. What they demand,  they'll fret.  Several changes in the.existing  laws regarding provincial timber  are to be made at the next session  of the provincial house.

The incorporators  are PI. W. Green burg, C. W. Sanson', S.   S. Bassett,   A.   Herman  and O.  B.   Hollin.    The concern  owns 10,000 acres of timber lands  between Rossland and Greenwood,  and   while   offices will  be maintained iu Spokane it is not  the  intention to ship any of the forest  products into this country.

Lying  deeper than the fun of Christmas  rt'v-jls, the pleasure of  family reunions, and the satistaction which  conies   from   the   general manifestations   of   good    will,   i*    a  s it-tier   and   more  spiritual joy.  11 is the j >y which comes  to men  and w<anen when they are honest  with their best selves.    It is the  joy   with   which   men   catch   a  glimmer of the truth that   ftllow  men   whom   they  have regarded  with suspicion, bear  about  with  them golden impulses.    It  is the  joy which comes when we baniah  from.our souls malice and  greed  and envy, and the whole brood of  Darkness.    It  is   the joy  which  comes when we become  again at  Utile children, and following the  teaching   of   the   Nazarene,  approach   a   little   nearer   to   His  Kingdom  And so, as Tiny Tim observed.  "God bless us, every one !"  BEN   KISG.  Nothing to 1o but work;  Nothing* to eat but food.  Nothing to wear but clothes.  To keep one from going nude.  Nothing to breathe but air;  Quick as a flash it's gone;  Nowhere to fall but off ;  Nowhere to stand but on.  Nothing to comb but hair;  Nowhere to sleep but in bed:  'Nothing to weep but tears;  Nothing to bury but dead.  Nothing to s-ng but songs  Ah, well; alas! alack!  Nowhere xo go but out;  Nowhere to come but back.  Nothing to see but sights;  Nothing to quench but thirst;  Nothing to have but   what   we've  got,  Thus through life we're accursed.  Nothing to utrike but a gait;  Everything moves that goes;  Nothing at all but common sense  Can ever withstand these woes.  note circulation   of   the bank is  39,235,769.6S, while the bank has  on hand in coin and  bullion  and  Dominion   notes    $11,053,419.73.
