The 5 Canadian ������������������:$>'Iis  said to have recruited -doubtful���������< characters  from every nationality, to the number.:6f 60,  70, or 100.   Where did they get this inmrma-  tion ?   Tbe .Canadian claim, ortginally consisted/of twenty full interests, and many of  .these were divided before there  was any  trouble.   There were about thirty shareholders in the Canadian eo. on the day that Spalding issued his proclamation j there were not  forty on the day that Ball caused his injunction to be read.   At the characters of these  men, who dare throw the���������'��������� first stone ?  They  are all able-bodied, industrious working meru  Honesty and adversity have infused a firm  princi pie iri to their natures, by- which they  Would resent an insult as soon as they would  an;injury.   But to speak of collecting one  hundred desperate men out of one thousand  inhabi tan ts, i n a district whose j ail has rio t  confined ten white men in three years, until  the members of the Canadian co. Were twice  unlawfully driven there in crowds, is at least  ridiculous, and perhaps vicious.   The members of the Canadian co, are hot afraid to  make their traducers a.unit of 'comparison as  to character.    Amongst the members of that  huge and enOoused swindle, are men who  have no plea against the charge of perjury,  but that of wilful ignorance, and one who has  had no safer protection against the charge of  ; forgery than flight from the colony..   All the  members of the Canadian co. hail from some  $)artof the vast empire, and tbey have friends  and influence to call on in their extremity,  which would perhaps place the government  of British Columbia itself on trial, before that  great tribunal, after which/for justice, there  is nothing on earth.   The members of the  Canadian co. have as much knowledge of  English law as educated subjects are expected  to have, and are hot much inclined to submit  tamely to the arrogant and anserous orders  of stunted subalterns, when these orders are  contrary to law.   The Canadian co. did not  offer armed, nor any other kind of resistance,  When Ward was arrested 5 all that the other  members did was to demand the officer's warrant.   He had bone���������but like the ingenious  tavern-keeper Who arrested an absconding  debtor ori his tavern license���������be produced an  Unlawful injunction, vague and false.   There  never was a demand made for any members  t)f the Canadian c'o. under warrants of arrest,  and I have rio hesitation id stating that if  Warrants had   be* en  read,  demanding the  podies of any of the. members, they would  surrendered at fence : and I am  fectly satisfied that both the lessees of the  Flume and the officials knew this to be so.  The Canadian co. never knew that there was  a warrant for any.of them, until the agent of  the company received a list of names from  his Excellency, and immediately they surrendered themselves before the court was  ready to receive them.. Special constables,  scribblers, cases of rifles, marines, are called  for���������threatened against men who know that  the governor of a colony, centuries old. is  yet in the hands of; the;{criminal daw of Eng^  land ; th at the fear of death has -hardly passed away from Col Nelson and Lieut.

The only point further on this part of the subject, is the merits  of the injunction.    The clause of the A ct under which the members of the Canadian co  were imprisoned, says, " lawful orders of the  Gold  Comrilissioner.,,    ��������� The   commissioner  says " aUmy^ orders are lawful."   The Act  presumes that some orders may be unlawful ;  the legal,adviser of the Canadian co. says: the  order in question is not lawful, and challenged; Mr! Ball to refer the matter to. Mr.  Begbie.ZA&oAZ The members of the Canadian  eo^e^enttb the common jail���������they do not  understand' the English language ; Mr. Bali is  ���������in^rtnibl^f.^Iiyis a way we have in the  army.";: /A writer in thc Colonist pretends to  understand/this whole case ; he says u that  the(Canadian/co. cal led no evidence, but simply-made a/'statement, etc.," on the first trial.  Now -this is a delib erate falsehoo d.   The ra an  who wrote Jhat letter certainly knows something of the case, and must know that Com-  missipherVSpalding refused to hear evidence  from the Canadian co., and gave hi3 decision  without hearing their case.   Yet this was the  nearestJhey ever got to a Rearing, for Mr.  Bobth^forced-a statement oh Mr". Spalding,  ^tio-reTjii^ed^tbat his " mind wa? made up."  Eyer since this mock trial, the Canadian co..  haye;^ put of court as often as they  ���������AaiyA00 ��������� in^* It is natural rib w for * tbem "to  show; a'disposition to stay out until they are  invited iri;   Now we come to the bottom of  the whole matter ; every * act ,of Mr. Ball in  this matter is shielded behind Mr. Spalding's  decision in the case.    The Columbian knows  all about it.   He quotes the decision from the  Sentinel, * in his issue of the ; 3rd Au gust,  how ?   In his b^se and willing seryitude,< he  actually quotes a decision made in the case of  Can adian co. vs. Gro use co., arid; i h favor of  the Canadian co., and properly reported in  the Sentinel ; one which has no reference to  the case whatever, as  being  the decision  of Mr. Spalding against the Canadian c6.,  i n the case Gro use Creek B ed Ro ck Flu me  cp. vs, Canadian co.   The prejudice of this  editor we   anticipated ;   his: rashuess  and  abuse are natural, but this deliberate perversion Was unexpected-���������'. Unstable as water,  thou shalt not excel;"   Now, in the face of  all these misrepresentations, I boldly assert  that all the Canadian co. ever asked, was for  "the courtito carry out Mr. Spalding's decision  but this Mr. Ball has refused to do, and in the  meantime  I appeal to expected investigations for the truth of this statement.   Neither  the Colonist nor Columbian seem to have any  method in their madness.    They represent  certain persons as being prominent members  in the Canadian cp., who never owned in it.  The books of the company have been produced ; is Mr. Thompson a member ? is Mr.  Booth ? is Mr. MacLaren ? Mr. Murdoch denied being a member under oath.   The Colonist says it is not a public grievance.   Why,  then, are there so many volunteers to aid the  Canadian CO. in getting one hearing, which  will, at least, insure pity, if it will not bring  them justice.  I am perfectly willing, however, that the  Flume co. and their friends should have their  revenge ; and for that reason I shall give  what I consider a brief outline of the whole  affair. The Flume co. staked off their ground  and had a map made ; on this map there are  transverse lines, from which the original  ground can be laid off. Where is the map ?  Echo answers where I The engineer and surveyor is here ; the man who made the stakes,  and placed them, is here ; the Flume co.  failed by over 1,000 feet of flume, to fulfil  their charter, yet they were indulged with an  extension of time, in which to perform, not  the whole deficit, but less than one half of ih  in short, they got twice the time to Ao half  the work ; the. balance was forgiven. .How  was this privilege obtained? By falsehood.  The colonial s^cr^tary wrote* a letter id tae'  spring of 18C6, to certain complainants on  Grouse creek, which explains the whole matter. ��������� Mr. Cox had written the notice of forfeiture to the Flume co.; it was countermanded by Mr. Birch, on an ex parte statement/and the  extension was granted.'   The  Flume co. appeared in the spring of 1866, by  an agent, a shareholder, arid a contractor ;  be was turned out, of the  commissioner's  court because the company had not paid their  rent tp the go vernmen t.   After some del ay the  govermrient was satisfied ; then began - the  mys|ery.: ;The Flume co^had large liabilities  poritthe yprevious year j these could not; be  Cprie/cted, ;^asx the person in charge xpf:; the  works said he was only.' a contractor, and  evehVthe/chairtiiari; of the board of directors  declared that the; company had riot an existence; ���������vOu-the ^ * to  the ground- in dispute, there was a rich bench;  on the locators of this bench j the Flume co.  was [continually crowding, to such an extent  thatsone of the'locaters has sworn that he was  driven from ground over seventy feet distant  froni'the Flume, and there are others who will  testify to the same fact. . Several parties were  ejected from the Flume co.'s'ground during  the season, by a party who was not responsible for the liabilities of the company, be-  cau&he was only a contractor. / The reaction  carn^ ; tb is sam e'in di v idn al who had pi anted  stakes/and ejected locaters in the name;of  the Flume co., contracted, debts during 1866.  arid^hese tbe Flume co. will not pay; because  he was only a contractor.  'Finally, the man  in possession sold the tools and movables of  ruption or ignorance mrist bear the. disgrace;  On the proclamation anent this matter is baaed a charter which./has villainy stamped oa  the face of it^ fpip.by * interliniog and alterations, a desigbirig; effort has beeu made io  make it at once amew charter and an. extend  sion of the old one; and, horrible to fiay, it  was not signed.until late in May and beara  date 23rd March-J-a government charter pr\>  dated by nearly ,1wo-months.

The  indulgence of the government was to expire  on;the 31st of May,.1867, When there was  snow.and frost.   The Canadian co. was organized when winter had begun, arid, after it  wasJbeyond the range of possibilities for the  company to perform  the stipulated" work,  eveii-if they had shown the greatest determination to have done so.

The result of their negotiations  with the Flunie co. is well enough known.  The representations made no doubt excited  the cupidity of the shareholders of the Flume  co.   A memorial of falsehoods, signed by  David Beneveu, was sent to the government,  in behalf of .the .-Flunie co.   No opportunity  was ever given to; the Canadian cp./to sliow;!  the'falsity of the memorial, or even to see it;  a copy of it, with other important pap ere,  was refused to, the naining board, by Mr.  .Spa'lding, and simnltanedtiSly Mr; Birch refused them to the House;   TJiis memorial -rtras  followed by a threat and a sacrificeV .The  Fhime co, threatened to hold ppsses^iqii,;;of  the whole ground���������why did they/not;? , In  this case, as in some others, _'*./ the half is  more than the whole."    They were prilyfa-  vori ng.: themselves, wh eri they offere d to ab an-  don all 'but 1,250; feet.   And this would be  very soon known, if the gPvernrrierit had given  us the least opportunity. /  To give greater effect to \their cause, Mr-  Cox has to be sacrificed.   He^ is represented  by authority and otherwise as being; favorable to this adjustment, and also as recom-  mending it./ This is unfair;  Mr. Cox. never  made such a suggestion. It was Mr.BarnardJs  memorial as an ultimatum that asked for the  1250 feet, and one of Mr. Cox' memoranda on  the subject is a most injurious rebuke and a  contradiction, of the memorial of Leneveii.  Early iu March, however, the Gold Commissioner for this district received an order from  the Colonial Secretary declaring the charter  of the Grouse Creek Bed Rock Flume co. unconditionally  forfeited after tlie 31st May.  The Commissioner madeyit known;  but  one of the lessees of the Flume co. rushed td  the mouth of Quesnelle, and returned on the  third day with a telegram from Mr. Birch to  the Commissioner, Ordering him to take no  further action on the matter in the interval,  as full particulars were coming by post; v_ The  particulars came ; a proclamation was issued  on the instructions received, which was illegal, for it was only a guarantee, yet it secured more for the Flume co. than they  ever  owned, and part of that the property of others.  Can anyone explain why the Gold Commissioner, in his January letter to his Excellency,  should so strongly urge the necessity of revoking the charter, and early in Match he  should go. beyond liis instructions to protect  the company ? or can anyone explairi why  the Government should declare a charter forfeited and in less than three, days after, u"3e  the telGgrapH td cancel the forfeiture���������?   Cbr-  citcd as authority;and they would be sent tA  jail.   I appeal to^the judgment ������f any sane  freeman if iriatt$rs had not even then reach*  ed the limit of endurance.   6iit the Canadian  co.   bowed /submissively and appealed the  case;   the appeal was' riot yet heard; the  Canadian cp. had ground beside the Flume1  ground and above it. Another company, on  the strength of :Mrv: Spalding'e proclamation^  located  the  "section  of the  Canadian co.'d  ground situate above the reservation for the  Flume Co.. The Ganadiari co; ?ued them for  trespass andthe^ourt put the Canadian co.in  possession. 'Mr^Spalding left, Mr. Ball arrived;  The Fluriie/cp.itberi. made ah effort before  Mr. Ball to takef ^possession of: part of th^  Black Hacked.^s front ground ; in that ac^  tion the Black-Hawk co. hot Only proved that  they were not,trespassers^ but that they were  more than 12 feet from the Flume co.'s line:  The decision ofMr. Ball was according to the  evidence.

J X A writer in the Colonist "pretends to  ���������understand this whole 6aser;! he says :*^ that  the Canadian cp. called no eviderioe, but sim-.  ply made a statement, etc.,'?, on the first trial.  Now this is a deliberate falsehood.   The man  who wrote, that 1 eiter certainly knows ��������� some-  thing of the case, and ��������� must!know that Commissioner; Spalding refused to lie ar evidence  from the Canadian co.,:and ! gave bis decisibri  Without;hearing their; case;    Yet this was the  nearest;; they; ever .got to a.

Now, we .come to the b bttorn of  the whole matter;! every act of Mr./Ball in  this matter is shielded behind '��������� Sir. Spalding's  decision in the case.    The .Columbian knows  all about it.   He quotes the decision from the  Si2NTiNEL,/in his issue of the 3rd August-  bow?   In his base and willing servitude, he'  actually quotes a decision made in the case of  Canadian co.vs; Grouse co., and in favor of  the Canadian co., and properly reported in  the Sentinel ; one which has no reference to  the case whatever, as  being  the  decision  of Mr. Spalding against the Canadian  co.,  in the case Grouse Creek Bed Rock Flume  co. vs. Canadian co.   The prejudice of this  editor we   anticipated ;   his  rashness  and  abuse are natural, but this deliberate perversion was unexpected���������"Unstable as water,  thou1 shalt nofr exceli"   Now, in the face pf  all these misrepresentations, I boldly assert  that all the Canadian co. ever asked, was for  'the court,to carry out Mr. Spalding's decision  but this Mr. Ball has refused to do,.and in the  meantime  I appeal to expected  investigations for the truth of thi3 statement.   Neither  the Colonist nor Columbian seem to have any  method in their madness.     They represent  certain persons as being prominent members  in the Canadian cp.������ who never owned in it.  The books of the company have been produced ; is Mr.Thompson a member ? is Mr.  Booth ? is Mr. MacLaren ? Mr. Murdoch denied being a member under oath.   The Colonist says it is not a public grievance.   "Why,  then, are there so many volunteers to aid the  Canadian co. in getting one hearing, which  will, at least, insure pity, if it will not bring  them justice.  I am perfectly willing, however, that the  Flume co. and their friends should have their  re Veil ge ; and for that reason I shall give  what I consider a brief outline of the whole  affair. The Flume co. staked off their ground  and had a map made ; on this map thereare  transverse lines, from which the original  ground can be laid off. Where is the map ?  Echo answers where ! The engineer and surveyor is here ; the man who made the stakes,  and placed them, is here ; the Flume co.  failed by over 1,000 feet of flume, to fulfil  their charter, yet they were indulged with an  extension of time, in which to perform, not  the whole deficit, but less than onebalf of it  In short, they got twice the tirric to do half  the work ; the balance was forgiven. How  was this privilege obtained ? By falsehood.  The colonial aser&tary wrote a letter id tne  spring! of/1866, to: certain eoriiplainants on  Grouse creek, which explains the whole matter.;;; Mr. Cox had written the notice, of forfeiture to the Flume co. 5 it was countermanded by Mr.-Birch, on an ex parte statement, arid the extension was granted.;. The  F1unie cp. ap pe are d i n: the sp ring of' 1866,; by  an ,a;gent, a shareholder, and a contractor ;  be was turned biit   of the   commissioner's  court because the company had not paid their  rent 'to the government.- After some delay the  go verb men t was satisfi e d ; then b e^an : the  mystery."... The Flume co. had large, liabilities  from tnp; prcHous year ; these could not be  co lleb ted j. \ as the  per so n iu charge of the;  works said he was ��������� only a contractor, and  even; the chairman, of the board of directors  declared that the company had not an existence, i Cn the side of the creek'opposite to  the grouri id; iri dis pu te, th ere, was a ri ch b en ch;  on the 1 centers of this bench, the Flume co.  was Ico nti nual ly .*.. crowd ing, to su ch au extent  that |b ne of tlie lo caters h as ��������� sworn' that*, he was  drivfettlfrrim^ ground o ver- se v en ty feet- dis tan t  from She Flume, and there are others who will  testify-to the same fact:1   Several parties, were  ejecipd from "the."'Fluine ��������� co.Js grounol ;durihg  the season, by a party who  was not respon-  sibl^fbt ;the: liabilities of the company, 'be-:  caiisojhe was brily: a Contractor.

'Finally^ the man  in p|ssessiPn sold the tools and movables ^of  the comp any,: without; lay ing. a foot bf flumei  althMgh-! such:; favorable opportunities had  been afforded them by the. government.   The  indulgence of the government was to expire  on |bg 3ist of May, 1867, when -there was  sno"wJandv frost./- The; Canadian co. *:was;; organ i|ied when;;wmter^had begun, and!' after it  \yasSeypnd.. the range of / possibilities for the  company.; to' perforrii v jne-stipulated *W"prk,  even|:if;they had shown, the greatest deter min-  atioiiy to have done>, so;   Ifc is now that:the  plptfthickens.

A memorial of falsehoods; signed by  David Lerieveu, was sent to the govern merit,  , in b ehal f 6 f th e Flume co.   No op]3 or tu nity  was ever given to the Canadian co. to show  the'falsity of the memorial, or even to see it;  a copy of it, with other important papers,  was, refused to ;the mining board., by Mr.  Spalding, arid simultaneously Mr. Birch refused them to the House;   This memorial was  followed by a threat and a sacrifice.   The  Flume co. threatened to hold possession of  the whole ground���������why did they not ?   In  this case, as in some others, " the naif is  more than the whole,"    They were only favoring themselves, wherl they offered to abandon all but 1,250 feet.   And this would be  very soon known, if the government had given  us the least oppoi'tunity.!  A To give greater effect to their cause, Mr.  Cox has to be.sacriiiced*   He is represented  by authority and otherwise as being favorable to this adjustment, and also as recommending it; This is unfair;   Mr. Cox never  made such a suggestion. It was Mr. Barnard's  memorial as an u]J;imatum that asked for the  1250 feet, and one of Mr. Cox' memoranda on  the subject is a most injurious rebuke and a  contradiction of the memorial of Leneveu.  Early in March, however, the Gold Commissioner.for this district received an order from  the Colonial Secretary declaring the charter  of the Grouse Creek Bed Rock Flume co. unconditionally  forfeited after the 31st May.  The Commissioner made it known;   but  one of the lessees of the Fluine co. rushed to*  the mouth of Quesnelle, and returned on the  third day with a telegram from Mr. Birch to  the Cornriiissioner. Ordering him to take no  further action on the matter in the interval,  as i'u 11 p ar ti cul ars w e re c 0 mi ng b y p 0 s t:   Th e  particulars came ; a proclamation was issued  on the instructions received, which was illegal, for it was only a guarantee, yet it secured more for the Flume co. than they   ever  owned, and part of that the property of others.  Can anyone explain, why the Gold Commissioner, in his January letter to his Excellency,  should so strongly urge the necessity of revoking tho charter, and early in March he  should go betond liis instructions to protect  the company? or can anyone explain  why  the Government should declare a charter forfeited and in less than three, days after, uisfe  the telegraph* id cancel the forfeiture?  Cor  ruption or ignpr^ce must bear the��������� disgrace;  On the procTatti^tipri anerit! this matter is bas-  ed a charter y/hiQn;;;has villainy stamped on  the face of i������f 'ifo^y-. ihteriiriing and altera-  tions^a designing|eflEbrt / has ';��������� been made io  make itat;onc^-a|g^ charter and an extension of the old 6t|e; arid, hprrible to say, it  was not signed "untilylate in May and bears  date 23rd Marc1^S%oyer pharter pre  dated -by ^arlyvffrro months.

Mr. Walker argued that as Booth admitted   he   was   and   still is  the foreman of  Sparrowhawk Co., and while acting" in that  capacity, had given no orders to stop the men  from working, even if he did not work himself, was an aider and abettor in committing  .. .  ..... ���������r������w. ^ , a breach of the injunction ; he would there-  make the subject more clear to his .readers, j fere move that all parties complained of be  he/has, at no small exnenke.

The Sparrowhawk Co. be said had never been  before the court and could not therefore have  committed a contempt, as an individual, he  maintained that he had obeyed the orders of  court.  The Commissioner decided that a3 there  was not sufficient proof to show that Booth  had worked on the ground since the injunction was issued, he would therefore dismiss  the case as against him. Warrants wore ordered to be issued for the arrest of Soule,  Cunningham and Cameron, who had failed to  appear,. The Commissioner said he could not  recognize the Sparrowhawk Co.,. as their case  bad never been before him.

A plan, by tbe way, which for  . truthfulness of design, aiid beauty of execution, caunot be excelled, and must, entitle its  .author, to everlasting fame as an .'artist of no  mean merit, the copyright to which we would  earnestly recommend bim to secure without  delay.   In that article, reference is made to  the report of a decision on an  appeal  ease  given in the Skxtixel of the 8th July,.where  it is stated that ��������������� on the 3rd Julv, the Canadian   Company   brought  info  ihe Supreme  Court their appeal against Mr. Spalding's decision of April 22nd. when Mr. Begbie gave  the following decision, etc."    Now, if the  worthy editor will just glance again at that  report, he will discover that the case alluded  to-is that, of the Canadian Company vs. the  Grouse Company, and appealed by the latter  company ; a case that had nothing whatever  to do with  the dispute between, the Elume  .Company and the Canadian Company.   So  ;.:.ffinch for. the Columbian's veracious history.  ���������As to the gratuitous assertions made use of  by the Colonist, respecting the armed resistance of tbe Canadian Company to the con-  :��������� stituted   authorities,   and   the   disreputable  .character assigned to all its members, we do  not consider these worth refuting, as their.  very mendacity is  sufficient  contradiction.
