The case was  drew1 Bryden and Rex vs, Harry Car- J to  a*higher court and   Judge  Drake  roll were heard bv Justices Allan and !'i,,,   <.,���������<   ��������� ,      ,  ruled   that  on   account   qI   an   omis-  Matiiiescn. Mr. Allan read thc  charge .laid by Inspector of Mines  Dick against Marry Carroll. The information charged Mr. Carroll with  workinii* in the Wellington: Colliery  Company's Extension mines over  eight -houi\s in one day, in violation  of"the  Coal  Mines Regulation  Act.  Barrister Luxsc-n of -Victoria, v appeared  for  the-defense,    lie said     he  had an objection lo make,    that.-   hcv  'thomjht would go into the foundation  of tie whole act.    He  read   the sec-  lic-'i  in the Act relating  to  the   employment of a white   man underground !  over eight hours.    The section,  while '  statiiiff    that  no white  man  should  I  work iindergrouitd over eigh-t   hours in  any one     day, did not  provide that   I  the act of woil'-ino  overtime was an. |  offence against   the Act.    He conclud-1  ed this being the case,  Jkv,court had '  no jurisdiction  in  the\ matter.       ^_ I  lie1 was sin? thai Mr. Dick would  be unable to point out any section  in the. act that provided that if a  man worked overtime he was com-  lnittinj-i- an oft'eirre against the Act.  Mr.  Dick contendo!   that  although  sion  in   the section similar   to      the  one in  this section relating to    the  employment overtime of  underground  employees   the  Justices   01   Peace hail  no jurisdiction.   He wished  to  make  it clear  to their Worships  that   this  was a similar case (0  the one  referred  to.    There was no section in  the  act  that   provided   that   if an  underground   employee Worked  over  eight  hours in one day, -he or  his employer  werc  committing  an  offence against;  the    Act.       He  therefore submitted  lhat the summons be dismissed.  lie  remarked  that 1h-e Justices of"     the  Peace      sitting  on   this  case  had  a  great responsibility. They  would  be taking a great,     responsibili  ty    if   they  assumed  that  they  bad  jurisdiction in the case.  Mr. Dick .submitted that thc section intended that any person working underground more than eight-  hours were guilty of an offence against the Act. Mr. Luxson argued  that there W;*:S no clause in the section that said that this was the case  Their Worships1 adjourned tyc court  FINE  WEATHER  IN LONDON  FOR:VISIT OF ALPHNSO.  London,     June 7.���������King Alphonso  today visited the city of London and  enjoyed   the hospitality  of  the_Lord  Mayor and  Corpoiafion  at, the Guild  Mall.    For the first  time  since   his  Majesty's  arrival  in   England,      the  weather   was   suilicicntly   fine   to  enable  him   to  appear  in  an  open  carnage,      and  for  the  first   time' anything in the nature of teally     large  crowds >   gathered   to welcome  him.  From 'Bucking-ham Palace  to   the historic Gul'd JJal 1 the Royal  procession  passed under a continuous.archway of  flags and  flowers,  both sides  of   the  route  being'headed "by -deep  rows  of  sightseers     whose     welcome to the  young monarch wras  of the heartiest  description.    Seven   thousand   troops  lined   the   route  to  the  Guild   Hall.  The procession returned   to  the Palace   by   the   Victoria   Eni-baukmeiit,  th-iis giving the general public ample  opportunity      to witness  the Royal  procession.    Beside the Spanish King  sat, the Prince of Wales.  Halts wore made at the boundaries of th;- different boroughs to receive aiid answer addresses of the local authorities. King Alfonso unrestrainedly showed his pleasure at  the demonstrative greetings wdiich  culminated', in ascetic of great enthusiasm '-as he vetered the Guild  Hall. The city's address of welcome  was presented 10 lire king in a gold  casket.

Lux ton referred to a case that  was brought up in 1807 when Mr.  Little was prosecuted for employing  a Chiniiman in violation  of the Chin-  wilTi 'Attorney Luxson and > Inspector Dick. Upon the court'being reopened, Justice of Peace Allan said:  elusion to dismiss tho cases, as it  does not think it has jurisdiction in  this matter."

When  Lhe   train   arrived   at   Revelstoke     it  was  found  that     one of the  lads  was  missing.   Search     was   made     of   tho  train    from end    to end, but all that  could    he  founil    was  his     cap.

Then   the yard  engine     with   a doctor on .board was  sent out to search for him.   The boy  was found  walking west, and  beyond  a minor scratch end a, bruise he was  unhurt.
