The travelling public of Toronto,  Montreaband intervening points have  been accorded by the supreme court of  Canada the right'to'travel in third-  class e'atriages at the rate of two cents  for each mile travelled. It is the first  step in the on ward* march for a general'  two cent- fare.  The decision was given in the appeal  taken by the Grand Trunk Railway  Company against the order issued by  the-b'oard of railway commissioners in  July last. The victory Ms a sweeping  one and justifies the commissioners at  ull> points.  THE JUDGMENT.  Justice Idington in giving judgment  said he agreed with the reasoning of  thp chief commissioner (Justice Kil-  lam), which seemed to him to be impregnable.    Proceeding he said:  "It it> claimed that 18 Vic, chap. 39  of the Province of Canada, and not 16  Yic, chap.37, is to be looked to as the  incorporating act" of the appellant  company. It is said section 4 of the  Incorporated Railway Clauses Consolidation Act is part 'and parcel of the  act making this later incorporation,  and that thus the special tariff of passenger tolls fixed by 16 Vic, chap. 37,  section 3, is got rid of.  " The general scope and purpose of  the act later was to amalgamate a  great m.-iiiy lines with the main Grand  Truhkjine and the respective companies owning them with the G. T. RfCo.  of Canada.  . " The. old order of things remains in  all other respects unchanged. There is  the old corporate body, tlie old corporate name, the old main line extended  and all under the same old chat ter,  witli more new powers and properties,  but with the old right to provincial  subsidy and tho corresponding duty to  discharge, which was imposed as consideration for granting the subsidy. ,  "Again it is contended here, that the  board of railway commissioners have  by virtue of the Railway Act of 1903  obtained powers over the ' railways'  than had the governor-in-council under the General Railway Clauses Consolidation Act, 14 and 15 Vic, chap. 15,  in force when the appellants became  incorporated.  ' "There is'not much ground for this  contention. Even, if clearly so, as [  think-it is not; what would there be in  such a state of things, so inconsistent  with them as to repeal the obligations  created by 16 Vic, chap. 30, section 3,:  on which tlie board has proceeded to  make" thti order complained'of ? s-:'-  HISTORY OF THE CASE.  Thus ends, so far as the Canadian  tribunals are concerned,1 the agitation  begun by W. F.  Maclean, M. P., in  1903 for enforcement of the  clause iu  the Grand Trunk Railway Company's  charter prescribing a  third-class carriage rate of two cents between Toronto and  Montreal.     For years  the  company had'failed to comply  with  the requirement and the fact that it  existed had evidently been forgotten.  From  the first the greatest possible  difficulties were found to lie in   the  way' of  obtaining   information,  and  only by persistent questioning was it  elicited that the clause had never been  repealed. ^ As the responsible authorities would not take action,  steps were  taken by Mr. Maclean to test the point  in the courts.   W. N. Robertson, a reporter on The World, established a  grotmd'of action which was followed  by. the prosecution  of Mr. Hays, the  "general manager of the Grand Trunk  Railway Company.   Found guilty by  Police Magistrate Denison, the verdict  was later reversed oil appeal.     An application   for a   mandamus was also  refused by  the courts on the ground  that a remedy should be asked at the  hands of the railway board. <  Complaint was then laid -before the  railwayvcommissioners, who, on July  30,- issued the decision now upheld by  the supreme court.

"Still less argument, if possible, as  against the order in question, is there  in the new powers of the. board over  the kind of cars and accommodation  generally to be furnished by the company in operating its lines. Is it to  be supposed the company, if free from  any supervision whatever, would have  persisted to the present hour in usiug  only tallow dips, such as obtained in  1852, and would have insisted on depriving third-class cars of all the necessary utilities for preserving'some of  the decencies of life in travelling?  "If such be held by the company to  be part of its inalienable right, I feat-  it cannot maintain that pieyious right  in the face of this new statute, but .-ill  the same I have no doubt the commissioners can and will, if it becomes  clearly part of their duty to give directions as to third-class cars, properly  discriminate between the several  classes of cars, each class of fare may  entitle a passenger to enter.  "They may possibly improve them all  a bit, as compared with 1852, without  hurting anyone, or even the company.  "The appeal is dismissed with costs."  Montreal, December 18.���������Hon.  J. I  Tarte died^at 2:35 this afternoon,  at  the residence of his son-in-law, Dr. de  Martigny. ^ He had  been  ill for some  time, and sank rapidly this afternoon.  Joseph  Israel   Tarte   was   born   at  Lanoraie,  County Berthier, P. Q., on  January 11th, 1849.    He was educated  at L'Assomption College.   He was a  notary by   profession,   but practised  for -��������� two years only.   He was also a  journalist; and was editor of " Le Can-  adien" for several years.   He sat in  the Legislative Assembly, Quebec, for  Botiaventure from 23rd of February.  1877,   until the  general   elections   of  1881,  when he retired.     He was first  returned to Parliament for Montmorency.   Thiselection was declared void  in 1891.   At a by-election subsequently  held for L' Islet,  he was re-elected to  Parliament for that constituency.   He  .was   an   unsuccessful   candidate  for  Beauharnois tit the' general elections  of 1896;   sworn of the Privy Council  and   appointed.   Minister   of   Public  Works, :13th July, 1896,  and elected  for   St.   John   and   Iberville   on   the  appointment of the member-elect to  the "Senate.   At the general election  of; 1900 he was   elected   for the   St.  Mary's Division,   Montreal.-     He retired'from the Ministry on  October  21st, 1902, after a Cabinet crisis,  and  Virtually from politics,  his health being latterly anything but sound.  '"'} '��������� ' " mi     -   Will ' the News-Advertiser explain  how it comes to" have an article on  V. V. & E. construction work taken  from the Gazette of Dec  12th,  in  its  issue of Dec. 17th, dated from Princeton under date of 16th. There used to  be'a liyr over in Grand Forks who prepared articles in that way for the  Coast papers and sent the matter put  as original stuff  from   Grand   Forks.  Inquiries have been made at this office for particulars concerning an alleged runaway accident that was said  to have befallen Major A. M.:~ Anderson, the Great Northern right of way  agent, who is so well known in the Similkameen. The Gazette has nothing  more definite than the. general rumor,  which was indefinite alike as to time;  place and extent of injuries, except  that the latter were said to-be serious,  and that the accident occurred irr  Washington state near Spokane. The  degree of hazy indefiniteness which  seems to surround the rumor has a  marked resemblance to that concerning Mr. Kellett about a year ago, and  as that gentleman came to life again  after being frozen ������b death, the Gazette doesn't want to be mixed up in  another killing scrape. We therefore  give the rumor for what it is .worth,  and trust that the affair may be less  serious than reported, or maybe without any-foundation of fact.  THE CHRISTMAS TREE.  Following \\\i the very successful beginning made a year ago  to give  the  children of the town  a night's entertainment  in" association     with    the  Christinas   idea,   steps    were   taken  about a month ago to ariange for  the  event.    Committee-; were appointed to  collect funds and look alter other matters. Miss Blake,  the  teacher had  in  hand   the   preparation   of   the     programme.    To tho "appeal for funds a  generous response was made  from  all  quaiters, the men at the mine,   those  at   the  mill and   the. townspeople all  contributing liberally; and  providing  somewhere about $85.00 for   the purchase  of presents.     The event   took  place on   Monday evening  in  Fraternity Hall, where a Christmas tree was  prepared which was plentifully hung  with presents  for the children,   and  brilliantly illuminated   with   electric  lights,by   the  courtesy   of' the   Daly  Reduction Co.   to whom thanks, are'  due.   This besides adding materially  to the appearance of the tree.did away  with the risk from lighting  with  candles.  Rev. J. Thurburn Conn occupied the  chair, and after suitable introductory  remarks, began the programme with  a carol, "Chiid'of Bethlehem," by the  school.      Jasper   Woodward's   recitation "My Stocking" was nicely given.  The violin duet, -'Slumber   Song"   by  Mrs Lyon and Rev.   J. J. Jones was  well   received.   Miss   French   recited  ',The Soul of the Violin", a particularly difficult piece  to   do,  but gave  it  with'telling effect.   Mrs. Foibes sang  acceptably a solo,  "To You is Born a  Saviour" with piano and violinaccom-  pauiment.   The   piano   solo   by Mrs.  'Dickenson was well recieved, and* was  followed by a school piece entitled "A  Christmas Lesson, by Annie Jackson,  Avonia Jones, Gladys Brown,  Emily  Jackson   and    Ruth   Bowerman.    A  quartette "Peace on  Earth"  by Mes-  dames Forbes and Wirth" and  Messrs '  Jones and Rolls was sung under the  disadvantage of having no instrumental accompaniment.   Aubrey Bryant's  recitation, "Forgotten by Santa" came  next, and this was followed  by a duet  Mother's Song by Misses Emily Jack-  'son     and   Ruth   Bowerman.      Miss'  French's   second     recitation   was   in  lighter vein  than  the first and  was  well received.    Another carol   by the  children  entitled    "AVakon Christian  Children" was followed by a recitation  from Mis  Hamilton on  a Christmas  theme, and given in   Iter   usual good  form, after which SantaJClaus was announced, aptly costumed   to  the delight of the little folks.  Mrs. Bowerman had in hand the  training of the children in the various choruses.- Altogether the entertainment was enjoyed by those, present and if any mistake was made, it  was in having so many adult pieces in  an entertainment that was essentially  intended for children.  Statements from Canadian banks  coming out at a time when like institutions in other lands ate iiftlie throes  of a financial panic, make satisfactory  reading to Canadians these days. - The  Gazette is in receipt of a statement  from the Canadian Bank of Commerce  showing that institution's profits for  the past year to have been $1,752,349.67  and out of that they paid four dividends  amounting to 8% per annum. The  notes of the bank in circuliition are  worth over nine million dollars, and  bank buildings about $1,500,000.  W. T, Shatford, of Penticton, manager of the Southern Okanagan Land  Co., is in the city. He is very much  pleased with the progress made by his  company this season, the open winter-  having enabled them to keep on plowing and preparing the. land for tree-  planting right up to date. About 400  acres of fruit lots, which have been recently sold by the company have bee'n  plowed and all preparations made for  planting 40,000 fruit trees. Mr. Shatford is taking a vacation and during  his absence the business will be managed by his brother, L. W. Shatford,  M.-'-P. P., who is at prefeent making  his headqmirters at Penticton. Mr.  Shatford leaves to-day for Halifax,  and intends to take a trip to Jamaica  and other We,st Jnclian points before  his return next spring.���������Vernon News.

According to Sir  Wilfrid, it is a most fearful  thing to promise justice, and no  doubt he speaks from a realization of the contrast there would  be between a just award and  the pittance which he has prescribed as 'final and unalterable.'  If we have a , case for better  terms than have been granted  we are likely to be the gainer  from an arbitration such as Mr.  BordCri promises io give. If on  the. other hand, we liave been  dealt with fairly by Sir Wilfrid's  government, there will be no  harni'done by haying that fact  pronounced- by impartial authority! It is plain, however, that  Sir Wilfrid is apprehensive as  to the result of arbitration���������  that he has a guilty conscience  rebuking him for his treatment  of British Columbia.  Harping upon the string first  played when Mr. McBride went  to confer with the federal ministers and was  referred instead  to  the premiers  provinces, who had nothing to  do with the case and no respon-  ��������� sibility towards British Columbia,    Sir Wilfrid  declares  that  Mr. Borden "has no right whatever to re-open tlie question except by the consent of all the  other provinces."   Yet we find  that British Columbia lias never  been consulted  on any  matter  of this kind, and that increases  have been  granted  on various  pretexts more or less flimsy to  several  of the   Eastern    provinces without any suggestion of  consultation with other provincial governments.    Only a few  years ago Sir Wilfrid's government gave  to  Prince Edward  Island thirty thousand a year  in perpetuity without consult  ing British Columbia. ���������  What we in British Columbia  want is a square deal. If we  trust our case to arbitration we  will have to abide by the result.  If the Dominion government  had as much confidence as Brit-  W.  F. Maclean M. P. for S.  jYork   and    proprietor  of   the  i Toronto    World"   is    certainly  making  good   in'   his    plucky  fight for a two cent fare.     Session after session at Ottawa he  lias brought forward his bill to  that end but it has always been  knockc'd out   by   the   superior  lobbying influence of the  railway companies.  Finally he dug  up an old clause in  the act of  incorporation    of  the    Grand  Trunk  Kail way Co.   which  required the  company- to maintain a third-class  rate between  Montreal and Toronto at a penny a mile.    Thus with law on  his side he went into the courts  with   his case, and   there   the  railways' lobbying powers could  not reach/him.   Even the courts  tried to dodge the responsibility  but principally on the ground  of   jurisdiction,   for    when    it  came to a question of the in-  interpretation of  the meaning  and   intent of   any particular  law, all eminent  jurists recognize first the  duty which  the}'  owe to their own reputations  and that is to make their decisions sound no matter who may  be hurt.   It was a plucky fight  for any man to put up single-  handed,   and whether one admires Billy Maclean or not,  he  is bound in all fairness  to give  him the credit which belongs to  him in achieving  the  measure  of victory which he has gained  in  the direction  of his pet desire, the establishment of a two  cent fare.

The unfavorable-result of the  referendum  in   the   Boundary  unions, of the Western Federation   of   Miners,   on   Saturday  night last was scarcely looked  for in Greenwood,- Phoenix and  Grand    -Forks,,  where   it   was  hoped the outcome would have  been different.    It  is true the  margin was a close one���������only  47 out of a total vote of some  600. This result is the combined  vote   of   Phoenix    and   Grand  Forks where Granby. employees  were, concerned, for the^iss.ue  was not for the whole Boundary but the Granby employees  alone.    For   some   reason   the  union officials -would; not give  out the result at each place but  only the combined result,  from  -which it is to  be inferred that  some one of theni  was for acceptance,    and    the    majority  against at the other place was  too overwhelming. If there had  of the  other"!been a majority against acceptance at both places it is pretty  safe to conclude that the figures  of the separate vote would have  been forthcoming.    It is possible that  when  fuller information is obtained as to  what influences were at. work to  produce this result the eyes of the  public may be  opened  to  such  an extent that good may  come  of it in the end.

The plan of be-  ginuing������early ancLbreaking up at midnight, thereby doing away with the  trouble of serving.refreshments is considered an improvement in every way.  It simplifies matters a heap for the  committee, and for the guests it is gns-  tronomically sensible; for each can  rustle up for himself or herself what is  known to agree with them or do without as may suit them best.  For the last couple of weeks there  has been excellent skating on the settling pond below the Daly Reduction  Go's mill, The general manager had  the water turned on two or three  evenings during the. cold snap to flood  a portion on the fiat, below the pond  and thus provide a winter rink. If a  good sheet of ice could be procured,  H'edleyites might "git a wheen statics  an' besoms an' hae splores at the  roarin' game. Those who are fond  of skating appreciate. Mr. Ross' courteous consideration in affording them  an opportunity to enjoy the   pastime.  Last week's steady freeze without a  pick of snow made the conditions anything but favorable for operating a  plant by water power, and the Daly  Reduction Co's plant has been giving  considerable trouble because of the  amount of anchor ice forming in the  flume. Last year there was less trouble even when the frost was, greater,,  for there was a liberal coating of snow  all over the flume and the creek and  this seemed to keep the water warmer.  The mean temperature for the past  fortnight averaged 10.92 degrees, with  the dust flying on the streets, and  these were by no - means ideal conditions for operating the plant.

Jones, Chaplain;  Dan McCurdy, Recording Secretary;  D. Mills, Financial Secretary, and P.  Bromley, Treasurer.  It is wonderful how many bad things  were passed over by your correspondent in'the yeai'y and how many things  equally bad were noticed in the Keremeos notes. I do not claim any monopoly of this business, and any man  who can get the ear or the eye of the  manager of the Gazette may put in his  oar. In writing my little items, the  only friend I am concerned aboutHs'  the Gazette, and my chief motive is  the public: good. Therefore, with or  without hostile criticism and notwith-  standing the howling of the baser sort  I will continue to do my work.  Keremeos, B.

HEDLEY is the chief town on the route of the proposed  Coast-Kootenay Railway; - and with the advent of this road,  , which is assured in the near future,  it will unquestionably  - become a large and important city, and town lots will bring  big returns on money invested at the present time.  ...PRICE OF LOTS...

The salmon fishing season in Canada has been practically a failure  this year. Not only have the fish  caught with the rod been few, but  the net fishermen have fared little  bettor, so that salmon is selling in  Canada almost at famine rates. Tho  end of tho season  is Aug.   15.  The first fish enter toe rivers almost as soon as tho ice hiis disappeared, and the largest fish are  usually the first to ''run," as it is  called. The run continues, at intervals, for two or three months.
