 Vol. 4.  SUPREME COURT.  {Before Chief Justice Needham;'  Barkerville, "Williams Creek, B. GyMriri^, September/ S0> 1867.  yy  No. 43.  - - [Cont Inued from our last. L ....���������- \  ' Monday^ Sept. 23rd, 1867.  John Grant, sworn���������Have.been a member  of the Canadian co.; since 1st July, last, and  am so still; am also a member, of the Black  Hawk co.   The Flume co. sued the < latter co.  for a trespass, and claimed; $1,600 damages ;  the question, of boundaries.arose: in^ that  action.   The Flume_co. claimed fifty.feet from  the centre of the flume, in each.direction'���������; oh  the east side it overlapped a portion of what  the Black Hawk co. claimed!' Am a member  of tbe Sparrowhawk co. 7 The Canadian co.  considered/ they were closed but/ of court  after eweral. attempts to:get stht5tt?^ai3"ew..feafdr  The members of the. Sparrowhawk co. believing that the new charter of the/Flunie co.  required them to |workcontinuously on ��������� :their  ground, waited until three days had elapsed,  to see whether the/Flume co. would continue  to; work, and when they failed to; do., so,  thought they had a right, as free miners, to  locate it, and did so;   We were satisfied the  Flume cp^sl cbarl^;-^a^jllegal^ and took.  th is me aris of testing it.   ,       ���������,.._. .      '���������''���������'  Cross-examined���������If ..'the Canadian co. get9  the - disputed������ ground, the Sparrowhawk co.  will have to leave, it" Have no idea why - the  Flume co. did not work the ground; have  heard the Flume; co. demand possession^ the  Canadian co;'s shaft, but were refused; ..The  Flume co. could have worked on. the ground  that the Sparrowhawk co., located./ ,1 swear  that I considered the. ground abandoned. 7:  Robert Cameron, sworn���������Assisted in staking the Canadian co.'s claim. We commenced  |at the upper line of the Heron, and I ran.up  l/stream 2,000 feet, and measured across the  creek 100 feet. , When the ground was so  staked/.; .there -was no. one repreaentingi.it for  theFlumeco; /The*foreman;or agent of, the  our-stalring it, because he had not the means  to carry on the work. . _. 7  Cross-examined���������Was a. member of the  Canadian co. from the first; worked for the  Flume co. from June till witbin a week of the  time tbe Canadian co. was located; all-the  other workmen stopped at the same time. I  worked at the upper end: of tho ground ;  never worked any further from the flume  than thirty feet. I was to get.eighty shares  in the Flume;eo., or $8 a day. I had an idea  that the Flume co.'s ground lay in the creek,  not in the hill; the lines were not pointed  out to me. /.'/���������   .>"���������  Robert Mc*Wha, sworn���������I am not a member of the Canadian co. $ I went to Victoria  [in the winter of 1S66**67, and served Mr. Len-  jeveu, the chairman of the Flume.co., with a  ���������writ. He told me at the time there was no  fsuch company as the Flume co. in existence ;  that the secretary had run away, but that he  [meant to bold the ground, and pay the debts,  land would call the rest of the members of the  [company together.  Wm. Baker, sworn���������I assisted Mr. Gillette  jto stake off the' Flume co.'s ground in 1864 ;  [there was another man along with me, but I  jdon't recollect his name. I identify the stake  jmarked on the plan produced,.as being, in the  {position of the stake I placed /in the ground.  * ly atten tion has been called to that stake at  Kerwards from having camped hear; it during,  jthe summer of said year. I. had a.saw, pit  [fiear the place; where I sawed lumber for the  plume co. In staking, we commenced at the  pead of the creek, and worked down ; we  paced three stakes at the first point, one in  Jthe centre, and two others, fifty feet on each  |Bide. Gillette had a compass ; he took bear-  pgs and measured off half a mile, following  jthe centre by the eye, as far as practicable.  |We put five stakes in at the next half mile,  {one in the centre, and four, at, the sides. ^ We  jguessed the centre, not being very particular;  [I saw Gillette place his compass to get the  angles ; we measured thus till we completed  |the survey. Am not a surveyor, nor do I  fundergtand the business } I only assisted the  surveyor. . .     - - / ���������  Cross-examined���������There were four or five  leet of snow on the ground at the time of  "uryey, The creel: was visible in places. In  *������.me places the creel: is more than 100 feet  fide ; we always measured half a mile at a  pme. The stake I have pointed put on the  ������ap has been cut off since 1865, but although  shorter, I still, recognize it. I might be derived about it, there being other stumps in  neighborhood.   I cut it down three feet  tree that was - cut, was five or six inches. I  was a member of the Flume co., but sold my  shares to Mr.; Sidall ; I said to him tbe company had not treated me well. I never used  the words tfiat I would be even with the com:  pany yet; I might have .used harsh wordsj  but never, those.. I said the, company,;bad  acted' dishonorably, with their workmen ; I  might have said^ttie^w61'8 a set '������f swindlers,  I did not say anytfimg else against them.. ���������-���������  Re-examined���������I. think the Flume company  are a ;public, grievance still.   My attention  was called to tho stake before mentioned in  1864-J65;;   there;are peculiarities aboutthe  ground near it, by /which I could.swear to it,  even if it. had been gone altogether.,   . ���������/-, ;  ; : Andrew /Jeffrey, sworn���������Was on Grouse  creek in ,1865,.in the fall ; my.attention ^was  naltechto " the stakes" iff the' I'Fltime'; 'company;  opposite McWba's.house at that time.

He measured  fifty feet from where the water was running,  the;flume not being laid then. He pointed  out to me a stake near Connant's cabin. I  pointed out the position of that stake to Mr.  Stephens,-the surveyor, as it was marked by a  a boulder placed there by me. The stake  was in a direct line with Connant's cabin. In  consequence of Cameron not allowing me to  go beyond this stake, I sold my sluices, and  abandoned my claim. .      . .-'*,;'  Cross-examined-There are a great many  boulders near the place indicated, but tljey  are covered with small rocks.

The company was considerably in my debt;  I made propositions to them through Mr. Len-  eveu, to carry on ithe work for them.

No effort has been made' to  lay the flume since the fall of 1865.

But admitting  thatthe popular vie/w is right, and the Grouse  Greek Flume Company did not comply with  its charier, the company never.h&djand never  pretended to '--have,' any such..extraordinary  privileges as ;tbe Williams;^^ Creek .Company ;  their claims /being^- always confined to the  quantity of ground granted by their original  /charter. That any company should have the  power of :��������� taking the mining property of an  / Individual mirier j after admitting his title to  it,  by setting up a plea of right on   th e  grounds of any special prdiriarice iri their  favor,   which would  neutralize the mining  Jaws: existing at the time it was granted, is  simply :an anomaly, as no  right. can   be  granted to any company that would set aside,  or in . any way interfere with the/ law as it  stood   at   the   time  pf7 such  grant.      We  are   perfectly   of the   opinion   expressed  by   the   learned  judge    thati any   privileges   of  the   kind   could   only   be   retrospective and riot prospective.   Were it otherwise, no property would be worth a tithe of  its value, as a government grant might at any  time so alter its tenure or position in favor  of some party or company not at the  time  existing, as to render it worthless.    We are  satisfied that government never intended to  convey to the ;- Williams  Creek   Flume and  Ditch Company the privileges they  seek to  establish, and a special ordinance ought to be  passed at tbe earliest moment, defining  more  clearly tho rights of a company under such  circumstances; or at least, the existing ordinance in favor of the company should be  bo amended as to secure the rights of individual miners from such injustice as has been  sought to be visited on the defendant in this  case.   Tbere is still another feature in relation to the ordinance passed in favor of tbe  Williams Creek Flume Co.t. which  interests  tho whole.community, and which,  we  think,  should not be permitted to exist.    We allude  to the power granted to the company to take  and dispose, as they may think fit, of any  ground on the margin of their flume, without  the necessity imposed on individual miners, of  staking or recording such ground.     We are  at a loss to see what benefits have * been conferred on this community by the Williams  Creek Flume; Company, that they should be  entitled to any exernption from government,  exactions to which every miner in the community is liable, and to which any other company but this one would be compelled to  conform. It is time that such unconstitutional and inequitable privileges should be  abridged;4:" We are ready to admit that the  company have spent large sums of money  in the construction of their works, for which  they have not as yet received any adequate  return, but that is no reason why they should  be the recipients of benefits not enjoyed by-  all. /It is therefore to be hoped that this subject will receive tbat consideration at the  hands of our legislators during the next session of the legislature that its importance de-  'mands77 '���������; A < ATaa     '" - ���������:      /      -''.'���������  NEW ADVERTISEMENTS.

';  The Late Fight.���������The late prize fight between "Wilson and Eden has been 'the topic  of daily conversation for the' past few days.  At first, the friends and supporters of; Wilson  who iost heavily by the result of the fight,  although'������������������ not  without   suspicions, did not  really imagine that he had designedly' lost  the battle, but a careful consideration of the  circumstances connected with the affair, led  many to the-conviction that the fight had  actually been.sold, by Wilson.    These surmises, we understand, have been confirmed,  by the subsequent voluntary admission of  Wilson himself, who justifies his conduct by  saying that-he sold the fight because bis supporters bad'not treated him right. ..Although  we are well aware that such exhibitions are  attended with a good deal: of cheating and  double dealing, in other parts of the .world,  ���������still we were not prepared to witness so flagrant a breach of faith as has been commitfc*  ed on this community, by a man who has  been the recipient of many acts of kindness  at its hands.   If what we heard is correct,'  and we have no reason to doubt it,- that Wilson  used  every endeavour to ��������� induce bis  frieM&to .bet their money on-him*' -ass^ring^  them that if he lost it would not be by foil I  play, while at the same moment he was ne*  gotiating with his antagonist to sell the fight  for a consideration;, and thus cheat his unsuspecting, victims out of their money;   if, we  repeat^  this is correct, a  more  barefaced  piece of swiridlitfg could ,never have been  perpetrated,  and /although:the   law cannot   perhaps    reach /the    culprit,\ still  the execration of an  outraged community  cannot fail tb be meted out to such an unprincipled wretch.   We never admired pugilistic exhibitions, and we are glad to know,  from the feeling that now exists on this creek,  that such exhibitions are not likely to receive  the same countenance^   support ;,vbu\ any  future/occasion, as they have heretofore.'' :fv  RECArryitED;���������The/.prisoner, W.

While  being conveyed to jail, the prisoner made an  'atte m p t tp tun', tf way, b ut was. so o n b ro ugh t  to a stand by the officers, who levelled their  pistols at him. 7 As< it7is believed -that:; WUr  liams has been on the creek ev^r since his  escape, the wonder is that he has so long  -eluded the vigilance.of the police.  Pleasure seekers will be pleased to learn  that Professor Hermann, the celebrated Wizard and Ventriloquist, has arrived, and will  give the first of a series of magical entertainments at the Crystal Palace saloon, this evening: From the well established reputation  of the professor as an adept in the magical  art, we are satisfied his entertainments will be  very amusing. 77  Fire in the Woods.���������The woods in the  neighborhood of Conklin's gulch were set. on  fire on Saturday afternoon, and continued to  blaze so brilliantly throughout the evening,  that the town of Barkerville was thoroughly  illuminated. 7   '  The mail steamer California, from San  Francisco, was due at Victoria on the 21st;  We shall therefore have an eastern mail by  next Express.

I produce a copy of the contract between the  Flume Co. and Cameron, which, was copied  by myself.  Duncan Cameron sworn���������Was foreman "of  the Grouse Creek Flume  Co. in 1864 and  throughout the" whole of 18G5,; the copy of  the. contract produced by the former witness  I now identify as a true copy of that instrument,  which is dated April, 1866 ; came up  under this contract to carrjr on;the works for  the company.   When I arrived here. 1 found  a part of the ground at the head of the flume  and a part below that point held by the anti-  Heron Co.; I found that I had; to pay, the  rent before I could bring a suit of ���������.ejectment  against that company; I came up in May, and  in September I ceased to carry on the contract, having been sued for money, due by the  company.   Before giving up the contract, I  wrote repeatedly to Leneyeu, but received  no-instructions ; I did.allI could to.carry, on  the works of the company, but was compelled to give it up for want of means, Mr. Me-  Wha having refused to give me any more  credit., I am a shareholder in the Flume Co.  ��������� Cross-examined1���������I staked/ off part of the  company's ground in accordance with Judge  Cox's instructions, in June, 1866; these instructions were verbal, and given after .the  dispute-with. tbe/anti-Heron Co. was decided.  Idid this iri'the TinfanneFsefc"for^h-in-my-^tfi~  davit sworn to on the motion for rehearing  of the case between the Flume Co. and   the  Black Hawk Co., on 25th June last. VI began  tb^-Btake off at the head of the flume, measure-  ing  50 feet on each /side of it, and ran the*  stakes in this manner up - stream, "observing  the- same distance from the centre, of. the  ���������stream for 1000 feet;  this was meant to define the boundary of the Flume Co.'s ground  above the head of the flume ; I then stopped  because I thought the ground above; worthless. : Below the head of the flume I staked  off the ground 50 feet from- the centre of the  flume, whenever anyone  wanted to   work  on the hill side.Can't say whether the^ flume  followed the centre of the creek or not.; I  commenced laying the flume in August, .1864,  and finished \t in the fall of 1865 ;   the /first  claim located on the east side was the/ Heron  claim-; 5.'Mr"'.Cox advised me to stake off; the  ground to avoid disputes ; I assisted in. staking off the Blaclc  Hawk   ciaim in company  with? R: McWha/aud another man.   Went over  the Flume C6/*s ground with Gillette in 1864  when he showed me some of his original  stakes defining that gvcund.; The post marked sapl i rig on"- G i 11 ette "a seed nd p I an /of '3rd  June, 1867, and referred to by me in/my affl-  .davit as pointed out by Heron, was used by  'me-as a centre stake in 1864, for the purpose  of putting on a notice, that the . Flume Co.  claimed the ground.   Have seen the sapling  3 or 4 weeks ago, it stands there yet, and is  5 feet high.; am not nor never was directly  or indirectly a member of the Canadian Co.  . Re-examined���������Tbe sapling stake is about  300 feet .above the head of the flume;  could  not swear to any of Gillette's stakes now.   I  received a notice from Judge Cox about the  forfeiture of the Flume Co."s ground, one of  the notices was posted on the ground.  Leonard Gayet sworn���������I worked on Grouse  creek; I know the ground claimed by the  company 5 I recollect a stake opposite Mc-  Wha's ; I have seen the stake lately ; I know  the stake1 by a boulder removed by me and  another man, it is in the same place, it was  the position of the stake, there is a foot or  two difference. The boulders have been removed ; thestake was the boundary of the  Flum3 Co. 5 I kuow the stake because Cameron put a notice upon it; it stood about 60  feet from the flume, I pointed the stake out  to Mr. Ralph.   .  Cross-examined���������I have not seen the stake  since 1865 ; the ground has been all worked  to the depth of 4 or 5 feet; the stake was below the American cabin 250 feet.  William Halpenny sworn���������Cameron showed me the centre line in 1864; I was working  on the flume; I fancied the ground, afterwards known as the Heron claim, the creek  was 18 feet to t^e left of where the flume now  runs; never heard of Baker's stake.  G. H. Hall sworn. -1 remember the time  Cameron ceased to work for the Flume Co.,  it was in September, 1866; the claims were  laid over on the 1st November.  ��������� Wm. Ralph, sworn���������(Pointed out on map  position of stake alluded to by Perez and  Gayet)���������Gayet pointed out to me a stick  which stood by a boulder, the stick was put  in this summer ; it was intended to show the  position of the stake ; it stood about seventy-  five feet from the centre of the flume. ,1 saw  Baker's stake, tho measurement from which to  centre of flume was thirty-seven 'feet ten  inches. I measured from centre of flume to  Cohnatlt's houso sixty-eight feet at right  angles ; the stump near Couant's house is  squared, and appears by my map to be sixty-  nine and a-half feet from centre of flume.  Cross-examined���������I made a map for the  Flume co;, defining the boundary of the Black  Hawk grdund ; i was a member of that com  pany (the B. H. co.); the distance between  the Black Hawk lines and the centre of the  flume was fifty feet. The upper stake of the  Heron co. was the same distance from the  centre of th8 flume. I know a stake pointed  out by the foreman of the Heron co.; that  stake is forty-two feet from centre of flume.  The old stakes of the Heron company were  less than fifty feet from the flume ; the twelve  feet two inches in dispute -would belong.to  the Flume co., if the lines on my map; are correct ; when-1 drew that map I intended it to  be correct.  Edward Stephens, surveyor, sworn���������I made  the plan pointed out; my attentiou was called  to the spot pointed out by Frank Perez, it  was a boulder,. The measurement thence to  the centre of the flume was seventy-five feet.;  a stump, squared at the top, was pointed out  by Stewart Smith ; the stump called Baker's  stump was pointed out to me, it stood thirty-  seven and a-half feet from .centre of flume.  The stake or spot hear Cohant's house, is  sixty-eight feet froni the centre of flume.

All that the law required  the Flume co. to do, was.to plant stakes sufficient to warn strangers from locating, their  ground.   The  notice . of forfeiture1   was in  abeyance for thirty days ; meantime it was  set aside.   The notice had no. reference to  the twelve feet two inches now claimed by  the Canadian co.   There was, however, no  notice proved, and if such notice was proved,  there was no order' made upon it, as was required by law.    But if such notice had been  proved, the fact that rent had been received  since that time by the lessors from the Flume  go., and also that a new lease had been granted to the company, neutralised any effect that  such a notice .could have had.   The learned  counsel contended that the Flume company's  ground was not incident to the ordinary conditions of the mining laws of 1859.   He then  proceeded to point out several other sections  in the various mining ordinances, showing  the distinction between the ordinary mining  leases for one year, and those for ten years ;  which under the joint stock company's Act,  would render the ordinary mining laws, under which the Canadian co. claimed, wholly  inapplicable.   The twelve feet two inches of  ground1 in dispute, was clearly proved by  plaintiffs'  witnesses  as    belonging to  the  Flume  co.     The   Black   llawk  co.  never  claimed that their lines approached the centre  of the flume nearer than fifty feet.   There was  evident collusion between  the anti-Heron,  Black Hawk and Canadian companies.   They  bad sufficient notice that they were taking up  ground tbat was not vacant.   The ground  held by the defendants forms an irregular oblong, about or near 100 feet wide ; the rent  was accepted by Mr. Cox.   The1 stake at Connant's house was not a stake of tbe Flume co.  and.it was reasonable to conclude from the  evidence, that Baker's stake was not a Flume  company's stake, on the eastern side.   The  charter of the Fliime co. entitled them to follow the le'ads-250 feet, but they had never  demanded that right.   In 1866, the ground  was properly staked off, at the point where  the Canadian co. now claimed, hence the last  named company had full notice of what belonged to the Finnic co.   Tho Flume company never abandoned their ground j nor was  it ever forfeited;    They now claim 1250 feet,  commencing at a point 500 feet below the  head of the present flume, andruuhing up  atrfeam fifty feet on either side of, the lin^  formed by the flume. The property being  peculiar iri; its nature, the holders have>  as near as possible, ebrnplied with ihe  conditions under which they held it. If the  Canadian co. can' claim any of the ground,  they can claim it all; the Canadian co. never  recorded the strip, but the Flume co. had  done so. The ground would never have  been touched by the, Canadian co., had the  Flume cOvnot made discoveries upon it The  learned counsel then put certain documents  in, as evidence for the/defencet and proceeded  to examine witnesses in support of his ori&ev.  {to he continued.]   /  '���������"'-  "' A A : ������<  A        r   .y TELEGRAPHIC;   (From tlie Colonist aiid Chronicle:) '���������/������������������;.
