Ex-Commissioner Green's Libel Suit Disposed of in
13 Minutes
Mr. Justice Clement Speaks
Plainly in His Charge to
the Jury
Vancouver, July 31.—After being out fifteen minutes tbe jury in
the libel suit Green vs. The World,
this afternoon brought in a verdict
for tbe defendant with costs.
The principal feature of the suit
was the scathing language in whicb
Mr. Justice Cle-nent scored Caron
and Green in his charge to the jury.
"It is very difficult for me," he
said, "to find language to properly
criticize the action of Mr. Adolphe
Caron. After all, it seems to me that
a man in public life, when a transaction is going through an office, who
writes to the head of that office a
letter of that description, should
have the insignia of royal favor
whicb bas been conferred upon him
stripped from him. I have not the
slightest hesitation in making tbat
statement, and making it as strongly
as I possibly can.
'That letter reached Green," continued the court, "and I say Green
at once should have resented the dishonor done bim in making him such
a proposition. Nor have I the
slighest hesitation in saying so.
Either Green must be the most innocent of men, unable to see that a
proposition of that sort was dishonorable, or else he must have thought
that in the long run possibly some
benefit would accrue to hiin from it.
Tnere are only two hypotheses, and
if you put the worst construction
upon the action of Green in respect
to that proposition, then I say he
bas only himself to blame if your
verdict should be againtst him.
"I trust that the day has not
come when any man in British Columbia makes any difference between his private and his public
D. G. MacOonnell, counsel for the
World, also scored Caron, alluding
t > him as "a sly and wily old fox,
wbo was in politics before many of
us were born and is still at the
game." He claimed tbat Caron
had wittingly enmeshed Green in
hiB toils, and though tho latter
would bave had thegr.ice to destroy
the letters at issue, Caron knew too
much to trust any such act. Mac-
Donnell closed with a plea to the
jury to remember tbat liberty should
be given tbe publio press' in behalf
of the best interests of good government.
Green himself was the star witness
of the day. He acknowledged having torn up the letter in queseion
and kept no copy of the answer. He
thought that was the only portion
of tbe correspondence with Caron
not on record. The letter bad evidently been written after his wire to
Caron that theTelqua licenses would
issue. He had suggested Mackay as
the recipient of the shares, but never had a conversation with him concerning their value or disposition.
Questioned as to whether the letters
were the cause of his resignation,
Green answered that be resigned because of personal reasons. It might
be possible that be would re-enter
politics. Questioned as to his position with reference to the government, he said he wished he could
get around his obligation and tell ull
he knew.
D. W. Higgins, editor of the
World, stated that he had secured a
bint concerning the letters and I mil
written the famous article. He submitted it to Tupper and Cowan, and
both refused either to affirm or deny
the facts charged. Then he was
sure he was on the right track and
published the expose.
On Kootenay Lake
A traveler in the city told a good
story in the Yale lobby last Sunday
night at the expense of a section of
tht province where they are endeavoring to force fruit raising under difficulties.
A fisherman was seated by a small
stream patiently waiting for a bite.
Suddenly an avalanche of rock came
hurtling downing the mountain side,
nearly enveloping the lone fishermen,
who was compelled to flee for safety.
On the top wave of the rocky mass of
debris an embryo rancher rode as unconcernedly as if he had been seated
in an automobile speeding at the rate
of one hundred miles per hour on the
boulevards around Grand Forks.
-'Great Jupiter," exclaimed the
fisherman. "What pnrt of heaven did
you come from? Are you badly injured!"
"No," replied the man; "I am getting used to this pleasant diversion.
This is only Tuesday, and it's the
third time I' ve fallen off my rawneh
this week, by Jove."
B. C. Copper Company
As briefly mentioned in the last issue
of The Sun, the directors of the British Columbia Copper Coinpany, Ltd.
at a meeting held in New York lost
week, declared a regular quarterly
dividend of 25 Cents per share, with
an extra dividend of 15 cents per
share. The dividends are to be pay
able on September 4th, the company's
head office being in New York. The
British Columbia Copdor company is
capitalized at $3,000,000 in shares of
,f!> each, there being 503,000 shares
outstanding, the nmount to be distributed thus being $210,200. After
spending several hundred thousands
of dollars in smelter and mine betterments, the company a few weeks ago
succeeded in getting all three of the
large furnaces at the smelter in steady
operation, and close tu 2000 tuns of
ore are now being treated daily. It
is estimated that the coinpany should
now be producing in the neighborhood
of 1,500,000 pounds of copper fine per
mouth when the full battery of furnaces is kept in continuous operation.
The chief mine of the company is located in Deadwood camp, and the
smelting works at Greenwood, while
the company owns and operates mines
in Summit camp, Boyd's, Wash., and
near Danville, Wash. A good deal of
satisfaction is expressed in the Boundary over this first distribution of
profits by this company.
There was a match race in Danville

Kettle Valley Line Now Engaged in Grading Third
A party of scientists, consisting of
the commissioners appointed by the
Canadian and United States governments in connection with the international bounduy line survey, arrived
in the city Friday evening and left
Saturday morning for Rossland. The
survey has been rechecked by experts
and the trip of the commissioners was
in the nature of an official inspection
of the monuments before formally
certifying to the accomplishment of
the work of fixing the boundary
line. There are three commissioners,
one appointed by the Ottawa government, and the other two by the Washington authorities. Dr, W. F. King,
the chief astronomer for the Dominion, is the Canadian representative.
Dr. Charles Walton, secretary of the
Smithsonian Institute, is one of the
American commissioners, and the
other is O. H. Tittmann, superintendent of the United States coast and
geodetic survey. Accompanying the
commissioners was Mr. L. D. Burling,
geologist and assistant curator of the
National museum at Washinton. The
inspection of the survey has been
finished from the Similkameen to this
point. The party went from here
to Rossland, thence to Gateway. After
leaving Gateway Dr. Walton and Mr.
Burling go to the Mount Stephen
district to make a geological survey of
the Cambrian and pre-Cambrian
rocks, with a view of their co-relation
with the Montana and Idaho sections.
Dr. King and Mr. Tittmann will turn
west again to continue the inspection
from the Similkameen to the coast,
and will thence proceed on a similar
mission to northern Vermont. The
boundury line between Canada and
United States is 3000 miles long—

A great reception was given Sir
Wilfrid Laurier upon his return to
Canada from attending the colonial
conference in London. From the time
the premier sot foot on Canadian soil
until he arrived at Ottawa lie was the
recipient of royal tokens of the esteem
in which he is held by Canadians,
without regard to party. As a consequence of the premier's visit to England, Canada has become better known
and her aspirations better understood.
Trade relations betweeD this and
other countries have been improved,
all of which will redound to the advantage of the Dominion and all the
people will participate in the results.
With the completion of the Grand

The federal government does not
intend that there shall be any more
ignorance of Canadian conditions, of
climate, opportunities for the homeseeker, and knowledge of the Dominion as an attractive field for investments. To this end, a dozen representative newspaper men have been
brought to this country from the old
country, and they will be given a trip
across Canada. After visiting the
Maritime provinces, they will proceed
to the Pacific coast, at a time when
the harvesting will be in full swing.
Such a trip will impart much practical
knowledge and result in a better class
of immigrants coming to our shores,
and also be an advantage in that it
will make Canadian affairs better

Ever Have Cramps?
Kind of fierce to be tied up in a
knot at midnight with cramps. Keep
Nerviline handy. Ten drops quiets
cramps instantly. Used occasionally
Nerviline prevents this trouble entirely. From Stratford, Ont., Wm.
Dee writes: "Nothing I know of will
give such relief to cramps, colic or
pain in the stomach as Nerviline. If
you feel squeamish and si-'k, just ten
drops of Nerviline in water and you're
well the next minute." Think of the
protection and comfort in a 25c bottle
of Nerviline and get it today.

Marriage Entanglement
Spokane, Aug. 2.—Judge E. H.
Sullivan, in the Spokane county superior court, has opened the final chap
ter in a matrimonial entanglement
which, twelve years ogo, was widely
discussed in British Columbia, California and Washington. The action
was instituted by Mrs. Mattie Brun-
age Purdy against William J. Purdy,
who were married in Spokane October
10, 189.*), suit being filed March 8.
1907. The court has taken the matter under advisement, aud will probably render a decision before the end
of this month. The complaint is desertion and that Purdy had a wife
when he married the petitioner. It is
recited that on their wedding trip in
California Mrs. Purdy became suspicious her husband had transgressed,
and the honeymoon terminated suddenly in San Francisco, the bride returning to Spokane alone. Upon her
arrival she received a letter in which
it was stated Purdy had a wife when
he married the second time, and
wished her well. He also apologized
fur his actions and begged his second
wife to be considerate. Warrants
were issued for Purdy charging him
with bigamy, based on tbe claim of
Rebecca Purdy, of Harwich, B. ft,
who appeared on the scene a few
weeks after he had left town, that he
was her husband. She declared they
had been married in Harwich and had
one child, a boy.
