Shepherd of Nanaimo.       a Ito surv  , ', ���������-     , ,    I-touch t  government surveyor,  has  been making a survey   for a new wagon road  rvhich  the government  proposes      to  build for use instead of the     present  ro.'.d.    Mr.  Shepherd has been       at  ivork on .the wagon road survey some  lays     but    recently received", orders  from iheadquarters, to   make -a"'survey  tor the     wharf --road-.   In a conversa-  :ion     today Mr.  Shepherd ��������� informed  Che'..Ledger      that   his  instructions  from-"'the-,department were tliat *-. he  ,nal;e a survey for a road as "proposed1.  ;o be takeii through the ravine     at  'Kitchener street, and under., the railway track, and also for a level crossing, from   Buller  street  to the     road  made/by '   the Dominion "government,  rile survey of the latter will  be corn-  jleterl this afterric.on,  and'Mr.'.Shepherd will  begin work on the subway  survey  tomorrow', hoping to -submit  the   two     surveys together with his  Estimates  of the cost of construction  both for a   level crossing and a sub-  vay- approach   to  the  wharf Monday  Dr Tuesday.  Mr. Shepherd said the cost "of ma *-  ing  the  tunnel  under the  tracks fiom  Hi:;     ravine would,  he   thought,   be  ���������; r i;e, but.    he was given      to under-  k I an-.'  ler their tracks and to induce them  government to do this had offered to  help considerably to defray  the   expense.   While he had not made     the  ravine route survey at the tim.>.     of  the conversation, iTr. Shepherd '.hou-  i>trt it would probably  be best      to  Rrade the road to the ravine     from  Kitchener street.   Not    -  -ng .made  the survey he could not  at  tho pi ts-  mt  time g'ue any idea of the r'ah J  the tunnelling etc.  Speaking of     the wagon road ths  surveyor said the present road .ciccs>-  ed    the     E. & N. track at several  points north of \Ladysmith,  and for  rarious reasons   the government   desired  to   do away  with  these  crossings.     Mr. Shepherd was oidered i.o  survey     for a road below the track  Irom the head  of,the bay, bringing  it to thc mouth of the  proposed sub.  Kay.' The work he had <ione end tha  lines of the course came through tha  smelter  properties.   Since he started  Dn this survey fresh orders were   received  by  him  from  the  government'  ey for a road   that would not  the smelter  company's  property.      This  survey took, a line below  the   track, as far _ns the  diamond,    a-  bout a mile from  town,  and     there  bridged over >^>th tracks to. the-"present wagon road.   If tha .latter surrey  was decided' upon by the J**ovcrn-  ment fully a mile of the present road'  would '1 e utilised. . . '  In connection with the above-men-,  troned  road,  the following questions  rvere answered as %r.keu from the pro  ceedinge:  Mr. Williams .asked the honorable  the chief commissioner of lands and  r/or" s the  following questions:  I.

It was styled Park  rs. Park. The'. wife was suing her  husband, W, Park, for $1,250, mori--  ry expended by her on the l<cep of  'heir children. The husband bad been  R-ritton to but had not answered the  letters, hence the suit.  No evidence  was .put in for  thede-  lence, but  it was  urged  hy Mr.     S.  S.  Taylor  that  a wife could not sue  her husiiand  except where permission  iras expressly given under the 'iUarri-  pri Women's Protection  Act.  Mr.'Justice Duff, presiding,   maii>  taineel that  as the  law had given   a  married woman the right to hold it  must be necessary   to give her      the  right to defend property.   A woman's  nirnings  were  as much  her  property  as anything else.  Mr. S.  S.

Mr.    Taylor admitted "this,    .'but  said    that ' as the wife was equally ���������  bound  with her husband to-support  the children,; especially  where  there;  vas a separate estate,  ;;he could not  recover for her disbursements on this  tccoemt against her husband.  The court asked that it should be  shown that tho liability of the bis-  band  was not a primary liability.  Mr.  Taylor argued that -the primary liability  of thc . husband was "has- '  ed upon the poor law oi Errgjand and  not upon  thb common law. "i."  Mr.   Justice Duff,   remarking       on  this point, said that he was not fa-  rorably impressed wilh tbe cross-examination   of  the.     plaintiff in which  I rortain -imputations   had   been  made  rvhich    bad    not been backed up   by  the children,   as, ��������� indeed,   was       anv ,,. .,  .v.   ,  , , ,     ,.    ,      ,,'      nutting    the husband on the witness  third  person as long as he kept     the   '    . ���������  ch.ldrcn  voluntarily.

THE SUNLIGHT  WAY  RUB ON SUNLIGHT SOAP  LEAVE 30 TO60 MINUTES  RINSE   WELL  Sunlight Soap is better than  other soaps, but is best when  used in the Sunlight way (follow  directions).  Hard rubbins and boiling are  things of the past in homes  where Sunlight Soap is used as  directed.  Sunlight Soap will not injure  even the daintiest fabric or the  hands, and the clothes will be  perfectly white, woolens soft  and fluffy.  The reason for this is because  Sunlight Soap is absolutely pure,  contains no injurious chemicals  ��������� indeed, nothing but the active,  cleansing, dirt-removing properties of soap that is nothing but <  soap.  Equally good with hard or  soft water.
