SchulU  against the tiades labor council, Ben  jamin Dressen and others. By the  decision the contract exacted from  the boss bakers by thc union men,  in an effort to enforce tbo closed' shog  is held illegal; thc trades council  and the individual members enjoined  from using the "unfair" list; the  boycott is declared an actionable eon  spiracy to accomplish a ciimiiuil oi  unlawful purpose. 1 laker Schultz is  allowed to recover 'damages for the  loss of profits, and $3;500 iu damages for the amount of injury to his  business and property in relation to  its selling value. The decision in  part is as follows:  "All boss bakers of the city signed this agreement except the' plaintiff, who has steadfastly refused to  do so. Upon the plaintiff's refusal  to sign, concerted attack on his', business was begun by ���������.organized labor,  with the object and purpose of" compelling, him, against his will, to sign  the contract and has been maintained with" more or Jess vigor up to  the present time.  "The plaintiff bas suffered a ' permanent, and all but destructive injury to his business which has been  caused by the combined acts and the  attitude of organized' labor. An injury to one's business and trade is  on the same footing as an injury to  his tangible property and the law  furnished a remedy for one as well  as the other.  "The acts complained of arc, in mv  view, plainly in violation of the Wisconsin statutes as construed by the  supreme court.

That the possibilities of ''the land  are-appreciated is shown by theiaoc"  that 'it is the intention of the C.P.  tt. to clear a large tiact back of  Ladysmith, and later on sell it in  small plots to fruit growers. While  no official information has recently  been given out, by the company regarding its intentions, some time  ago Tbe Ledger printed an interview with Mr. (1. S.

I heaped reproaches upon those who had spread their  net, for such as he, and my indignation was kindled against the promoters. The other day I had occasion  to visit Peachland and naturally  made enquiry for my friend. I was  informed that he would be sure to  be down to the wharf with a load  of fruit that evening,' for shipment  with the steamer, on its way' north  thc following morning. ' I made a  point of seeing him. , The despondency had all-gone, be had on his'rig  a consignment of 26 cases' of peaches  grown on his own ranch, and he -was  delighted. I asked ijm how he would  like to go back to his former position in the city. He laughed, then  shaking his head,  firmly said:   "No;  in his opinion should be made.

city,   and a supporter of Premier Me W mtin wuro biahtiug tn a ,ock cut
Bride, is spoken of as. likely   to  rua
again, although   some of his   friends
declare he will not seek re-election.
The Liberals have two prospective
candidates both of whom are supported by a largo following. They are
Robert .Tardine and F. W. ITolway,
but from present indications it. looks
as though the former would receive
'the nomination. '
The only other constitutency in
this district in which prospective
candidates have been mentioned is
.Dewdney, the seat -of Premier Mo-
Bride. Mr. M. DesBrisay, will likely
be the Premier's opponent.
licau candidate is thc' present liep-
resentaive, Charles Ef Littleiield; and
in opposition lo him is running as
Labor candidate President Gompers,
of the American .Federation of Labor. Speaker, Joseph Cannon, Representative Chas. E. .Littlelield; and
coining to his aid, and on the other
side John Mitchell is expected lb
tour the stale. With/'.'Joe" Cannon
and John Mitchell opposed to one
another, tbe campaign should result
in a good deal of fire.
