City  Council  Meets Wednes^  day and Monday, 7  COMMITTEES APPOINTED  Fire Chief Resigns ��� Telegram Acknowledging Greenwood's  Expression of Sympathy.    *  The adjourned meeting- of the council held on Wednesday evening* last,  was a long and interesting one. Aid.  Naden presented his declaration of  office and took his seat for the first  time. He was welcomed by the mayor  in a neat speech and he replied in a  few well chosen words. Aid. Kirk-  wood's seat was vacant and after the  meeting- was opened he tendered his  resignation to the city clerk. Aid.!  Sullivan moved that the resignation  be received and filed. : This wassec;  onded by Alderman Sutherland. Aid.  Caulfield believed the- , resignation  should be accepted and the seat declared vacant. He moved an amendment to this effect which was seconded  by Aid. Miller. Aid. Sullivan said  that Aid. Kirkwood not being qualified, he could not resign a seat he did  not legally possess. Mayor Jakes was  of the opinion that the council had not  the right to assume that Aid. Kirkwood was not qualified. Aid. Kirkwood desired to. make an explanation.  He stated tha" as some doubts existed  as to his qualification and as the matter could not .be settled excepting by  the courts, and as he had no desire to  retard or cast a doubt upon the legality  of any business transacted he deemed  it better in the public interest that he  should resign.  Mayor Jakes said that Aid. Kirkwood was to be commended upon the  public spirit displayed in the matter  and' in his opinion the council should  receive his resignation.  Aid. Caulfield had not doubts regarding Aid. Kirkwood's qualifications.  He believed they were ample but as the  alderman wished to resign so that no  trouble could possibly arise, he believed that the council should accept  the resignation. The resignation was  then accepted.  Aid. Naden ��� moved that the  seat be declared vacant, that nominations be held on Friday 25th, and elections, if any, on Monday 28th, and that  G-. .B. Taylor be appointed cky clerk.  Seconded by Aid. Caulfield, Aid. Sullivan doubted the legality of this course  and Solicitor Gray being asked for his  opinion held that the course was  regular if Mr. Kirkwood was qualified  but irregular if not qualified. . A reference to the minutes showed that Solicitor"Leamy had advised that an election could properly be held in a. similar case two years ago. Aid. 'Naden's  motion was then carried. .  "Before bligi^i-ig^^  ness Mayor Jakes made reference to  the. loss the nation had sustained by  the   death of Her Gracious Majesty.

Naden stated that as Mr. McArthur  had superseded himself, he did not  like to vote either way, the mayor's recommendation was endorsed on vote of  Aid. Sullivan, Sutherland and the  mayor.    \  The re-appointment of city officials  was then considered but as Aid..Naden,  Miller and Caulfield all held that some  rearrangement beneficial to the city  could be made and that they wanted  time to "take stock" before committing  themselves to any course, a motion of  Aid. Naden that the officials be appointed temporarily was carried.  Applications for the position of city  engineer were received from Sydney  M. Johnson, A. E. Ashcroft and F. W.  Groves.

NEW  COAL LANDS  Are  Bonded  by   a  Toronto  Syndicate/  IN OKANAGAN DISTRICT.  Local Men are Interested���C. P.  R.  Officials Behind the Deal���Late  Mining Notes.  John Douglas, of this city, who has  been in Toronto for several weeks past  has been successful in placing with a  strong syndicate an option on 3,000  acres of practically undeveloped coal  lands, situated five miles north from  Fairview. Last week Robert Wood received telegraphic information from  Mr. Douglas.that the preliminaries for  a deal had been arranged, and subject  to a report by an expert of the syndicate, he felt certain that the same  would go through. On Saturday Mr.  Wood left by stage for Fairview where  he will meet the party sent out to ex-  amine'the coal lands. The 3,000 acres  are owned by John Douglas and Robt.  Wood of this city; Mrs. Ida Thompson  of Beaverton, and J.- C. McLagan, editor of the World of Vancouver. When  seen by a Times representative, Mr.  Wood corroborated the report: that.a  deal was on, but said he was unable to  give full particulars until after the  examination of the property, which  he anticipated would be . quite satisfactory to the Toronto people.  At the head of the purchasing syndicate is E. B. Osier, , a prominent  financial agent and broker of that city.  Associated with him are said to be a  number of heavy shareholders in the  Canadian Pacific railway. . From this  it would appear that the gentlemen  who practically control the destinies of  the big corporation are determined not  to be at the. mercy of 7those ,��� who manage the Crow's Nest Coal company, in  so far as coal and coke is concerned.  Especially if recent reports from the  east are correct that James Hill, of the  Great Northern railway has become associated and a large, shareholder in the  Crow's Nest company. By acquiring  ���these coal fields the C. P.TR. would  place itself in a position to cope with  the inroads of the Great Northern at  Fernie. '���'���  The coal fields are reached, five miles  north from Fairview on the main  wagon road to Penticton at the foot of  Okanogan lake. The deposits have  been recognized of great value for the  past 15 years but lack of railway transportation has prohibited a proper exploitation of the resources. Some prospecting has been attempted from time  tc- time, and coal has been mined for  local purposes. It is reported to make  excellent coak, suitable for smelting  purposes.  Should the deal go through the  owners-will receive*-a-substantial-cash  payment as also considerable stock in a  company to be formed to acquire the  land and develop the- same. The proposed route of the Coast-Kootenay railway passes directly through the property and the building of this road will  afford facilities for transportation 'not  only to the camps of Similkameen district but also to the Boundary.  y There have* been quite a number of  mining and smelting operators - and  machinery agents in the city the past  week. One party of Spokane men consisted of M. J. Ready, representative  of the Sullivan drill; Geo. O. Bradley,  of the Bradley Engineering Works  company., and A. W. Hudson, formerly  with the Northport smelter. From  New York are F. L. Underwood, a  director of the British Columbia Copper company, and W. H. Thomas, consulting engineer for the company, and  F. Batchelor, with the Robins Belting  company. On Sunday R. F. Tolmie,  secretary of the Silver-Lead Mine  Owners association, with headquarters  at Nelson, drove over from. Grand  Forks accompanied by D. A. McFar-  land, formerly purchasing agent for  the Hall Mines, and now the business  manager for the Nels/in Miner. Frank  Watson, of Spokane; the well known  operator ��� of "Silvery Slocan" mines,  and Judge John Boultbee, of Rossland, arrived here Saturday and left  for Summit camp on Monday. William  M. Brewer, traveling correspondent  in the province for the Mining and  Engineering Journal of New York,  was also in tewn the end of the week.  S. F. Parrish, of the B. C. mine, and  Jack Hanly, of the R. Bell mine, spent  Sunday in the city.  Gilbert Mahon, manager qf the Jewel  mine, Long Lake camp, returned to  the city on Friday after an extended  stay in Rossland. To a Times representative he said that the ore treated  at the Silica Reduction works, some  160 tons, had proved most satisfactory.  While unable to give out anything of  a definite nature he thought that it  was more than probable that his company would erect its own reduction  works at the mine this coming summer.  The plant, with some modifications  would be on the lines of that at Silica.  At the Jewel only a small force is at  work, but now that Mr. Mahon has returned a resumption of active development will doubtless take place.  Charles I. Hoffman, a prominent  mining broker of Spokane,was in town  on Friday. Accompanied by Ed. Massam he visited some of the properties  in Deadwood camp. With regard to  the St. Lawrence claim, adjoining the  Mother Lode to the north, and which  is owned by a Spokane company in  which he is heavily interested, he said  that work would likely be resumed ac  an early date. Mr. Hoffman hopes to  return in about two weeks and make a  lenthy stay here.  The main shaft on the R. Bell.Super-  intendent Jack Hanly, reports is down,  140 feet and is to be continued to the  300-foot level. This Summit camp  property is employing 14 mem. Jack >  Hanly owns an undivided one-fifth interest, the balance is held by the  Miner-Graves syndicate.  Eightcar loads of ore, averaging 20  tons per car, have been received at the  Pyritic smelter, from the Carmi mine.  The ore is hauled in sleds from the  mine to Midway, about SO miles thence  by rail to the smelter site. The mine  is under contract to ship 2,000 tons.  F.

COAL   COMPANIES AND
RAILWAYS.
Patcty papers on both sides have
been directing attention to the alleged
war that'**is on between the Canadian
Pacific Railway company and the
Crow's Nest Coal company. How
much truth there is in the many reports that have found publiciyy in the
press it is hard to determine. Without
expressing any opinion on the merits
of the conflict that, is supposed to exist, we are forced to call attention to
the serious crisis that has arisen in so
far as the. operations that are essential
to. the progress and development of the
country is concerned. The Greenwood
Electric Light company who furnish
light to Greenwood and Phoenix announce that unless a change takes
place in. the situation they will be
forced to Shut down for want of coal.
The British Columbia Copper company
have announced that they will be ■ unable to operate their smelter for a
similar reason. -Other smelters are
similarly situated. As we have already
stated, we. know nothing about the
merits of any quarrel-that may exist
but we do know that the public interest
is paramount to the fueds of corpora,
tions or individuals. If the govern
ment can do anything it should in
sist that those who are ready and wil
ling to develop the natural resources
of this great country and that those
who are ready and willing to carry on
legitimate enterprise! in this country
should not be frustrated by lack of any
material which nature has provided,
but which may for the time being be
tied up in the hands of individuals.
Nature has been lavish in her gifts.
There is abutjdance of csal to meet the
requirements in the operations of our
mines and the carrying on of other enterprises, but if the coal fields are exploited in the interests of the corporations holding them or if a conflict
arises between transportation companies and coal companies, such a difficulty as exists as at the present time
may occur again unless both transportation and coal companies are controlled by legislation that will prevent
such a danger, to the public interests.
"The"*b"ar<T7fact"that the"smelting-in-
dustry and other enterprisrs are likely
to be brought to a standstill by a coal
famine, calls for a prompt and rigid
inquiry on the part of the government.
NO DISSOLUTION.
Upon the death of the Queen, the
statement was made that her death dissolved parliament and that Great
Britain would have to pass through
another critical general election. It
turns out that this is not so. The
ancient practice of dissolving parliament on the death of a sovereign was
abrogated in 1867. Hon. David Mills,
minister of justice, one of the best
constitutional lawyers in the Empire,
has explained the matter clearly and
his remarks will be read with interest.
He was asked if the Queen's death dissolved parliament. ' No it does not,"
was the reply. "The. act of 1867put
an end to that rule. The ancient practice of the constitution in that regard
was founded upon the theory that the
House of Commons was Called into existence for the purpose of advising the
sovereign, and was treated as personal
council of-the sovereign for the purposes of legislation,- the technical
theory being that all acts of parliament are the acts of the sovereign,
created by and with the consent of the
two houses of- parliament. Seven and
and eight, William III, Chap. 15, enacted that parliament should last for
six months after the demise of the
Crown if it. were not sooner dissolved
by the new sovereign, and this rule
was applied to the united parliament of
England and Scotland, and also to Ireland, when that country was represented in the United Kingdom. Thirty-
seven, George III., Chap. 127, provided
that where the demise of the sovereign
took, place during the~ period of a dis
solution, the preceding parliament was
to be revived for a period of six months
and the present statute, which is 30 and
31 Victoria, Chap. 102, makes the duration of Parliament independent of.the
demise of the Crown.
"Our law for the Dominion, which
will be found in Chapter 11 of the revised statutes, provides that 'no parliament of Canada, summoned or called-
by Her Majesty, or her heirs or successors, shall determine or be dissolved
by the demise of the crown, but such*
parliament .hall continue, "and may
meet, convene and sit, proceed and act,
notwithstanding such7-demise7Qf the
Crown, tn the same manner as if jsticn
demise had not happened.' So . that
the death of her Majesty would not
necessarily affect the duration of parliament either in- the United Kingdom or
in Canada. Before the American revolution, iu some of the colonies the impression prevailed for a time that the
death of the governor would have the
effect of dissolving the legislative assembly in the same way that the death
of the sovereign would dissolve the
house of commons, but the law officers
of the crown pointed out that this was
a wholly erroneous view, that the legislative assembly ia a colony is called
together to advise the sovereign, and
not the governor, upon the subject of
legislation,.and so the governor's de-
demise had not the effect of dissolving
the legislative assembly. The executive power of the crown extends alike
to all parts of the empire, and it was
the death of the sovereign and not the
sovereign's representative that terminated the existence of all bodies that
advised the crown—whether in respect
to legislation or administration—the
theory being, as I have already stated,
that these bodies were the personal
councils of the existiug sovereign, and
the effect of dissolution being to leave
the succeeding monarch equally free
to constitute his own councils. By a
statute passed immediately after the
death of George IV, it was expressly
stated that no commission or warrant
for the exercise of any office or employ
ment, civil or military, within any of
his Majesty's possessions should in
future, on the demise of the crown, become void until the expiration of eighteen calendar months next after such
demise. And so all colonial commissions which existed at his demise were
continued in force for a period pf eighteen calendar months during the period
of the fourth George's death, and that
continued to be the law until 1867,
when the representation act made the
duration of parliament independent of
the demise of the sovereign."

Congregations Paying Tribute  to Victoria, the Good,  The services in the different churches  in    the   city   on   Sunday   last   were  peculiarly appropriate, being eloquent  tributes of the love and esteem in which  the deceased Queen  was held by her  loyal subjects in Greenwood,   At the  Presbyterian church, Rev. Mr. Ander-  - son in a short address paid an eloquent  tribute to the virtues of the queen and  then called on His Honor Judge Bole,  of   New Westminister,  who delivered  an eloquent address.   He was foll.owed  by Mr. H. C. Shaw, who in appropriate  terms,   made   reference    to   the wise  statesmanship of Her Majesty and the  consequent blessings that came to her,  colonies,   particularly   Canada.      His  Honor, Judge Bole said in part:  "The occasion which we have been  ���-narking by. a solemn and 'appropriate  religious service is one of  sad significance, the like of which has never heretofore occurre'd in the history of the  mighty  Empire  of   which  we  are so  proud to f->rm a not unimportant part,  I advisedly say the occasion is without  a   parallel  in our history;.other kingb  and queens have died and  been buried  with ceremony and pomp, and the outward   signs   of   mourning   and   the  funeral rapping' of woe were much in  evidence, .but  outside a small���a very  small circle���there was Utile genuine  sorrow; today  we mourn the loss of a  -��� sovereign =who-had_,become_ very dear  to every one of her millions of loving  subjects���who   for   over   sixty   years-  were   accustomed   to    heartily   pray,  'God Save the Queen;' we feel we have  lost not  alone the official head of our  Empire,   we have lost one whose life  and   every    thought    was    dedicated  to the welfare of her people, one'whose  loving heart  always sympathized, not  alone with   her own subjects, but was  in   sympathetic touch  with  suffering  humauity  throughout the   world, and  who   is   today   regretted   throughout  every  civilized   laud.    Her  noble example as mother, wife and widow have  left their mark never to be  eradicated;  and  the  world  is  the better that Victoria has lived.   I recall  some anonymous lines   written when the Queen  was crowned, which, when viewed in  the light of  subsequent events, seem  . almost prophetic:  They decked her coartly halts,  They reined her lipnored steed,  They shouted at the palace (rates���  A noble Queen succeeds.,  "And a noble Queen she-has been  noble in the best sense of the word, o,  as Tennyson puts it:  Pure hearts are more than coronets  A.nd simple faith than Norman hlood.  ."Noble in  her unswerving devotion  to duty, noble in her public life, noble  in   her private life���in-each she lived  up to the highest ideal,  and succeeded  to an extent which is  rarely   the lot of  man or woman.    She loved, peace and  hated war; she ever bore in mind that  God is the author of peace and lover of  concord, and on more than one occasion  by her timely  interference   with the  acts   of   her   ministers,   averted the  scourge of war.    But  over, above and  beyond all the glorious  reminiscences  of a wonderful reign, her marvellous  career  is a  great object lesson to all  Christian people.   She began her reign  with heartfelt,  earnest prayer to Almighty God for guidance and help���a  5       prayer   which  has   been   abundantly  . answered for   sixty-three   years���and  she   closed her  life as she began it���  with prayer���as she passed peacefully,  away from the possessions. of an  earthly crown to the eternal enjoyment of a heavenly one that fadeth  not away."  In the Episcopal church, Rev. Mr.  Robins made, special references to the  great loss the nation sustained. The  music and lessons were also appropriate for the occasion. Next Saturday two special services will be held.  At 8.30 a. m. Holy Communion -will be  administered . and at 11 a.' m. the full  Angelican burial service. for the dead  will be said. -���"���''       ..   . y  Similar services   were   held   in the  other churches in the city.

The learned  judge has taken over His Honor, Judge  Spinks' work during the latter's con-  valesence from a serious illness. Immediately after court was opened, Mr.  A. Leamy rose and said:        ^  "May- it please your honor, before  proceeding with the business of the  court, I have a motion to make.  "My Lord, these ate days of sorrow  for those owing allegiance to the British crown.   Our Queen lies dead.    She  who sat upon the throne of the greatest  Empire of the world, she now lies dead.  She who   during her term upon that  throne, presented an example  that all  the rulers should follow.   A woman in  the   strictest   sense of the word.   To  Canadians especially,  our  Queen will  be "looked   up  to with  reverence and  affection.   At the time she came to the  throne, an  agitation was going on* in  the   provinces   of   upper    and   lower.  Canada.   An agitation that might have  brought about the  separation of these  colonies from the mother country. The  people" of these colonies  agitated for  responsible-government.-.The���Queea  had just come.to the   throne,  and  by  her wise advice the way to the future  foundation of British North  America,  and the building up  of this great Canadian nation, was paved.  "Now, My L,ord, on my behalf and  on the behalf of my brethren, I wish to  tender you a hearty welcome to this,  our city, ��� the metropolis of the Boundary district. We desire that during  your stay amongst us, you will have a  pleasant time, and we will only be too  glad to sec you return to us more frequently than you have.  "I now make a resolution that the  court adjourn in consideration of the  death of Queen Victoria, the head of  our courts."  Mr.   Brown:   "May   it please   your  honor,   as   the juunior member of the  bar of the city of Greenwood'. I deem it  my duty to second the  motion, for tha  reasons  which   have been so ably expressed   by  the   senior   member,  my  learned friend, Mr. Learny.   It  would  be impossible for me to enter into the  virtues  of   our   late Queen.   1 might  say,   however,   that   I think it is particularly  fitting   for   us,   a   body   of  lawyers, to show every respect due to  our late beloved Queen, bftcause,as Mr.  Leamy has said, conditions were in a  state  of chaos when she ascended the  throne, particularly in  Canada, and it  required.the exercise of tact,  common  sense and wise statesmanship  to effect  a satisfactory settlement.   It has been  said that she is the only monarch who  ruled   constitutionally.^ She  was    always guided by the advice of her ministers and never acted contrary to their  wishes.   This   is  riot- the only reason,  why she is^ loved.    She is loved because  she was pure, and because she-was fpre-  mostin works of charity and humanity,  by all the people of the English nation.  "I may say again that I re-echo the  sentimentsof Mr. Leamy in welcoming  you to the city of Greenwood."  i   "Mr. Shaw:   Before your Lordship  replies, I would beg to move that the  proceeding today be spread upon the  records of   the court."   Seconded by  A. M. "Whiteside.  His Honor, Judge Bole: "Mr. Leamy  and gentlemen of the  bar,' In" granting the motion to adjourn this court, I  feel that" I cannot do so without making some few remarks.   It is. true that  it is impossible for words to adequately  convey t_ie"sense of bereavement and  sorrow we allfeel. Our Empress Queen,  onr loving friend,  has gone   to everlasting glory,  and left   behind a sorrowing Empire.   Nay more, a sorrowing  world,   from   the   heart of grief  stricken people of' every race, and in  every clime.   We, all her subjects here,  feel that   we  have -lost  a friend and  guide.   Under her  wise counsels, the  Empire which ��� at the time of her succession, was little better than a number   of   disintegrated provinces,   who  had no interests in common, and whose  feelings were, unfortunately, too often  the reverse of friendly.
