Out of the sessions of the Court  of Revision this and last week a  case which is practically unique  in municipal records was decided  in this city on Thursday m rning  by Judge Swanson. An application was made to his Honour to  have the name of Harold Greig  removed from the voters' list on  the ground that he was not a  British subject.  A committee of citizens was  formed some weeks ago in order  to ensure that only those who  were legally entitled to vote  would be placed upon the voters'  list. To this end they retained  Mr. Maughan to act for them and  place upon the list such as were  entitled to vote and have removed the names of those who,  on one ground or another, were  ineligible. Among the names  objected to were about half-a-  dozen to which exception were!  taken on the ' ground that they  were not British- subjects. At  the first session of the court'  Harold Greig's name was objected to on that ground. The Court  of Revision postponed action, requiring that evidence be submitted. At the session last Monday  none of the others objected to;  upon.the same grounds appeared  to show cause why they should  be retained on the list, save Mr.  Greig. He protested vehemently,  and the final decision of the  Court of Revision was that they  believed the evidence tendered  insufficient proof that he was not  a British subject.  In view of the decision of the  Court of Revision Mr, Maughan  filed an appeal with Judge Swanson, of the County .Court. His  Honour arrived in the city on  Wednesday evening and held  court on Thursday morning.  Mr. Maughan appeared for the  applicant committee and Mr. M.  L. Grimmett for Mr. Greig.  The defending counsel demanded  that   the names   of   some  of���^the ----eommi4tee- ���he--���set-^  mitted for the court. His Honour  required that the names of at  least one or two ratepayers  be  filed as applicants. Mr. Maughan  thereupon   filed   the   names   of  "G. B. Armstrong,   G.   F.   Ransome. and the other members of  the committee"  (names not supplied as the court did not requite  them).       The   application   was  ' 'To strike off the name of Harold  Greig and reverse the action of  the Court of Revision in placing  his name on the voters'list."  It  was made under Section 17.  The  statutary declaration  of Harold  Greig, that he was a British subject, was filed as an exhibit. Mr.  Maughan went on to state that  at the Court of Revision he had  objected to the retention of the  name of Mr. Greig on the ground  that he was an American citizen  ann not a British" subject.    He  wished to produce a member of  the Court of Revision as evidence  that there was* a doubt in the  minds of that court when they  decided to refuse the application  to have the name struck off.   He  contended   that   Greig   was   an  American citizen and that under  the Naturalisation Act he should  have been^required _to^_produce  proof that he was a British subject, having been re-naturalised.  If   the   Court of Revision   had  given written judgment he stated  that it would not have been necessary to produce a member of  the court as a witness.  Then followed a long argument  between counsel, his Honour finally ruling against the inclusion  of such evidence.  "Call Harold Greig." said prosecuting attorney.  Being sworn, the latter testified  that he was born in Stonehaven,  Scotland, 36 years ago. He left  Scotland when six years old and  went to England and lived there  about eight years.  Court: You were then about 14  when you came to Canada?���Yes.  JSJr. ETaus'han: How long did  you live in*Canada.?���About three  or four years. Three or four it  mieht have been.  Where did you eo then ?���From  Canada? To different parts of  Canada.  You went to different parts of  Canada. Have you lived in Canada ever since?���Oh, no.  How old wpre you when you  went to the United States?���18,  I presume.    Possibly 17 or 18.  So vou left Canada at 18 and  wont to th*1 States?���Y^s.  Wh^re did vou ev> ? What  nlace in the United States?���To  Sohpnectady.  S^henoctady. Any other place?  ���Oh, various places.  What was your occupation?���  Just living off my money.  By the Court: Were you living  off your parents?���No, I was all  alone.  Mr. Maughan: How many years  did you live in the United States  altogether?���Possibly two years  off and on. It might possibly be  three.  You would then be about 20 or  21 years of age?���Thereabouts.  How old would you be when  you left the United States for  Canada?���Possibly about 20.  How many years ago was it  that you left the United States  and returned to Canada?���Been  here ever since.  How many year's?���About 16  years; 14 or 15 or 16. Somewhere  along there.  I have here your statement  made under oath in the Vancouver police court on April 1st,  1910. in which you swear-  Mr. Grimmett here objected to  this evidence being introduced  and a long argument ensued, he  contending that a counsel could  not cross-examine his own witness. His Honour ruled that  there was evident evasion on the  part of the witness and ordered  the examination to continue.  By the Court: Ask him if he  gave evidence in the case Rex  vs. Greig in the Vancouver police court April 1st 1910.  Mr. Maughan: Were you the  defendant in that case?���I was.  By the Court: What was the  nature of the case? Ask him.  Mr Maughan: What was the  charge?���Really, I don't remember.  By the Court: You don't remember? What was the charge  Mr. Maughan?���Mr. Maughan:  desertion and non-support of his  wife Marion Greig.  By the Court: Do you mean to  say that you forgot-that, Mr.  Greig?���Well, he is asking the  questions and has the evidence,  your honour.  Mr. Maughan: you've sworn  here that you've been in Canada  14 or 15 years, since you left the  U. S?���About that.  In this police court trial this  question was asked iuu:-"Hovv  long have you lived in Canada?"  You remember that question being asked?���Yes, I do.  What was your answer?���Real-.  iy-I~ean~'tTe member.- "*      " -   '  You can't remember?���No.  Now that is only one   and   a  half years ago, and you say you  came into this country 14 or 15  years ago���Mr. Grimmett again  objected here tz> the cross-examination and another  long argument ensued.    His Honour then  said:  "You had better examine  him along the line of���" Then  stopped.   "Along what line your  honour?" was the question.  His Honour: Well I was going  to say���but you can't set the  trap in sight of the bird you are  trying to catch. (Laughter).  Mr. Maughan: In the police  court in Vancouver this question  was asked you: "How long have  you lived in Canada". Your reply  was "seven or eight years." Is  that correct? Well, your honour  I was under cross-examination  by one of the best lawyers in Vancouver and I was mixed up.  The court: again queried the  witness on his bad memory as to  where he had lived and what he  had done,  Mr. Maughan: You might have  said in the police court that it  was seven or eight years?���I  I might have done so.  =T=hat=would=make=it=now=eight=  or nine and a half years since  you came to Canada. What  time of the year was it when you  came here?���No answer.  Was it spring, summer, autumn or winter?���I really cannot  remember.  Where did you come to from  the U. S?���When I returned the  last time? Fifteen years ago. ?--  To Brandon, Manitoba.  How many years ago was it?  ���You have the evidence.  His Honour: Answer the question !  Witness: I could not say, your  honour. My learned friend has  the evidence.  His Honour: You mean you  can't say how many years ago it  was that you came to Brandon ?  Is that right?���Yes.  Mr. Maughan: Did you say in  the Vancouver Police Court that  you came to Toronto?���I really  can't remember. I've already  explained that I was under cross-  examination.  How long were you employed  in Toronto?���It might have been  three or four months.  You swore in the Vancouver  police court that you lived there  five years: was that right?���I  did not live there that long.  Would vou say that that was  incorrect?���No. (Witness here  appealed to his counsel and the  latter said that, the^ court had ordered the examination to proceed.  You may have lived in Toronto  Continued on page 3.  INTO WARDS  Council Appoints Returning Officer  For Municipal Elections  And Deputies  Last Monday evening :the city  council, in accordance with the  requirements of the Municipal  Clauses Act, divided the city into  two wards, which will be known  as East an d West Wards; In the  municipal elections next January  three atdermen will have to be  selected from each ward, while  the mayor is elected by the voters at large.  Harry Priest, city clerk, was  appointed returning officer for  the elections, with W. R. Langstaff and F. S. Gay as deputies.  The polling booths will be located  at the city hall on Nicola avenue.  A nice legal question became a  matter of discussion when the  question of electing school trustees for 1922 was brought up. It  appears that only those ratepayers who have their names on the  civic voters' list are permitted to  vote in the city. While thr ratepayers living outside the corporate limits, whether eligible or  not on the city voters' list, still  retain their vote. It seems to  the man in the street that it is  most unfair to gii^e the vote on  such an important matter to  ratepayers living without the  city limits, and then to refuse the  franchise to ratepayers within  the city on the grounds that they  are not otherwise eligible for  the voters list.  A by-law to raise $20,000 for  the purchase of a site and erection of a building for a city hall  and fire hall received its first and*"  second reading and will.be submitted to the ratepayers on election day. _ '-'' , -  Pete Smith is employed in the:;  city now.

I wonder why they hide me out of sight  In places where there comes no ray  of light?  It's strange that I should hang alone  upon these darkened stairs  And never see the world except in pairs.  I wonder why ?  I wonder, why I hear such lots of  "Don'ts"  From pretty lips, and often too, "I  won'ts!"  I wonder why girls try  To make believe they're cross, and  why a few  Declare that they will scream,  and  never do?  I wonder why?  I wonder why they always will persist  In saying they won't let themselves  be kissed ?  They must be sly  If you consider it for when it's done  They never seem to want to stop at  one !  I wonder why ?  So when I hear some dainty little maid  Declare '"'I couldn't," or that "She's  afraid!"  Why then I'm sure  It's either genuine, this sweet  confusion,  Or else it's the more obvious conclusion  That she's been there before !  . ���' 'Valentine." W. P. A.  AN HONEST MAN AT LAST  LOCATED.  A Kansas laundryman writes  us that he has discovered the  man for whom Diogenes sought  so long. He states that this  honest man belongs to Kansas  and that heybelievesno other  state can boas*t of his equal.  The communication states that  the man is a barber who lives in  Great Bend. Several weeks ago  he filed a claim with the Riverside Steam Laundry of that city  for one shirt which he claimed  had been lost by said laundry  and that his purse had been damaged thereby; to the extent of  75c. After due investigation and  consideration the claim was paid,  as so mmy laundry claims are  paid, for policy's sake and not  because the shirt had been lost  at the laundry. One week ago,  when some repairing was being  done in the barber shcp, the  shirt was found and the barber  called in the proprietor of the  Riverside Steam Laundry and  handed him the 75c. The laundryman has been under the doctor's care ever since and it is  doubtful if his nervous system  will ever recover from the shock,  If any other laundryman has  ever had a similar experience we  would=like=to=hear=f rom���hi rap  Such customers' names should  be entered on a national roll of  honor.

By Laws and Constitution Adopted  and Steward Appointed.  At a well-attended meeting of  the members of the Merritt Commercial club last evening the  constitution and bylaws of the  club were adopted.  There were three applications  for the position as steward of the  club, and the choice was made  by the executive committee  before the regular convention of  the other members. Their recommendation that R. S. Brown  be appointed was approved by  the other members.  The carpenters have been busy  on the conversion of the upper  part of the Eastwood block into  club rooms and there now remains only the task of equipment  to make it possible for the quarters to be opened to the members  on January 1st.  DBNCE A SUCCESS.  The dance given in aid of the  Nicola Valley General Hospital  in Menzies' hall last Friday evening was a decided success.

The  committee in charge of the arrangements for the dance desire  to publicly convey to the ladies  of the Auxiliary their appreciation of their efforts in making  the evening such a success.

D..c  Out of the sessions of the Court  of Revision this and last week a  case which is practically unique  in municipal records was decided  in this city on Thursday m rning  by Judge Swanson. An application was made to his Honour to  have the name of Harold Greig  removed from the voters' list on  the ground that he was not a  British subject.  A committee of citizens was  formed some weeks ago in order  to ensure that only those who  were legally entitled to vote  would be placed upon the voters'  list. To this end they retained  Mr. Maughan to act for them and  place upon the list such as were  entitled to vote and have removed the names of those who,  on one ground or another, were  ineligible. Among the names  objected to were about half-a-  dozen to which exception were  taken on the ground that they;  were not British-subjects. At  the first session of the court'  Harold Greig's name was objected to on that ground. The Court  of Revision postponed action, requiring that evidence be submitted. At the session last Monday  none of the others objected to  upon.the same grounds appeared  to show cause why they should  be retained on the list, save Mr.  Greig. He protested vehemently,  and the final decision of the  Court of Revision was that they  believed the evidence tendered  insufficient proof that he was not  a British subject.  In view of the decision of the  Court of Revision Mr. Maughan  filed an appeal with Judge Swanson, of the County Court, His  Honour arrived in the city on  Wednesday evening and held  court on Thursday morning.  Mr. Maughan appeared for the  applicant committee and Mr. M.  L. Grimmett for Mr. Greig.  The defending counselTdeman-  ded  that   the names''of some  ���of-��� th<=--~semmii-tee j^bs^-su-b-  mitted for the court. His Honour  required that the names of at  least one or. two ratepayers  be  filed as applicants. Mr. Maughan  thereupon   filed   the   names   of  "G. B. Armstrong,   G.   F.  Ransome. and the other members of  the committee"  (names not supplied as the court did not requite  them).       The   application   was  ' 'To strike off the name of Harold  Greig and reverse the action of  the Court of Revision in placing  his name on the voters' list."  It  was made under Section 17.  The  sfatutary declaration  of Harold  Greig," that he was a British subject, was filed as an exhibit. Mr.  Maughan went on to state that  at the Court of Revision he had  objected to the retention of the  name of Mr. Greig on the ground  that he was an American citizen  arm not a British' subject.    He  wished to produce a member of  the Court of Revision as evidence  that there was* a doubt, in the  minds of that court when they  decided to refuse the application  to have the name struck off.   He  contended   that   Greig   was   an  American citizen and that under  the Naturalisation Act he should  have been  required to produce  proof ^that"he-was-a"Brifishrsul>  ject, having been re-naturalised.  If   the   Court of Revision   had  given written judgment he stated  that it would not have been necessary to produce a member of  the court as a witness.  Then followed a long argument  between counsel, his Honour finally ruling against the inclusion  of such evidence.  "Call Harold Greig." said prosecuting attorney.  Being sworn, the latter testified  that he was born in Stonehaven,  Scotland, 36 years ago. He left  Scotland when six years old and  went to England and lived there  about eight years.  Court: You were then about 14  when you came to Canada?���Yes.  ���Jr. Sfauffhan: How long did  you livein Canada.?���About three  or four years. Three or four it  micrht have been.

By the Court: Were you living  off your parents?���No, I was all  alone.  Mr. Maughan: How many years  did you live in the United States  altogether?���Possibly two years  off and on. It might possibly be  three.  You would then be about 20 or  21 years of age?���Thereabouts.  How old would you be when  you left the United States for  Canada?���Possibly about 20.  How many years ago was it  that you left the United States  and returned to Canada?���Been  here ever since.  How many years?���About 16  years; 14 or 15 or 16. Somewhere  along there.  I have here your statement  made under oath in the Vancouver police court on April 1st,  1910. in which you swear-  Air. Grimmett here objected to  this evidence being introduced  and a long argument ensued, he  contending that a counsel could  not cross-examine his own witness. His Honour ruled that  there was evident evasion on the  part of the witness and ordered  the examination to continue.  By the Court: Ask him if he  gave evidence in the case Rex  vs. Greig in the Vancouver police court April 1st 1910. '/  Mr. Maughan: Were you the  defendant in that case?���I was.  By the Court: What was the  nature of the case? Ask him.  Mr Maughan: What was the  charge?���Really, I don't remember.  By the Court: You don't remember? What was the charge  Mr. Maughan ?���Mr. Maughan:  desertion and non-support of his  wife Marion Greig. "  By the Court: Do you mean to  say that you forgot .that, Mr.  Greig?���Well, he is asking the  questions and has the evidence,  your honour.  Mr. Maughan: you've sworn  here that you've been in Canada  14 or 15 years, since you left the  U. S?-About that.  In this police court trial this  question was abktd jou:��� ***Jbiov\  long have you lived in Canada?"  You remember that question being asked?���Yes, I dor-.-?���..  What was your answer ?%.Real-  iy'I'ca'n'c renieiriufeiv ^^y-  You can't remember?���No.  Now that is only one   and   a  half  years ago, and you.say you  came into this country 14 or 15  years ago���Mr. Grimmett  again  objected here t.> the cross-examination and another  long  argument ensued.    His Honour then  said:  "You hart better examine  him along the line of���" Then  stopped.   "Along what line your  honour?" was the question.  His Honour: Well I was going  to say���but you can't set the  trap in sight of the bird you are  trying to catch. (Laughter).  Mr. Maughan: In the police  court in Vancouver this question  was asked you: "How long have  you lived in Canada". Your reply  was "seven or eight years." Is  that correct? Well, your honour  I was under cross-examination  by one of the best lawyers in Vancouver and I was mixed up.  The court again queried the  witness jm his bad memory as to  where he had lived and what he  had done,  Mr. Maughan: You might have  said in the police court that it  was seven or eight years?���I  I might have done so.  That woulA^makejynowL,eighL  or nine and a half years since  you came to Canada. What  time of the year was it when you  came here?���No answer.  Was it spring, summer, autumn or winter?���I really cannot  remember.  Where did you come to from  the U. S?���When I returned the  last time? Fifteen years ago. ?--  To Brandon, Manitoba.  How many years ago was it?  ���You have the evidence.  His Honour: Answer the question!  VVitness: I could not say, your  honour. My learned friend has  the evidence.  His Honour: You mean you  can't say how many years ago it  was that you came to Brandon ?  Is that right?���Yes.  Mr. Maughan: Did you say in  the Vancouver Police Court that  you came to Toronto?���I really  can't remember. I've already  explained that I was under cross-  examination.  How long were you employed  in Toronto?���It might have been  three or four months.  You swore in the Vancouver  police court that you lived there  five years: was that right?���I  did not, live there that long.  Would vou say that that was  incorrect?���No. (Witness here  appealed to his counsel and the  latter said that, the eourt had ordered the examination to proceed.  You may have lived in Toronto  Continued on page 3.  3  Council Appoints Returning Officer  For Municipal Elections  And Deputies  Last Monday evening.the city  council, in accordance with the  requirements of the Municipal  Clauses Act, divided the city into  two wards, which will be known  as East and West Wards: In the  municipal elections next January  three aldermen will have to be  selected from each ward, while  the mayor is elected by the voters at large.  Harry Priest, city clerk, was  appointed returning officer for  the elections, with W. R. Langstaff and F. S. Gay as deputies.  The polling booths will be located  at the city hall on Nicola avenue.  A nice legal question became a  matter of discussion when the  question of electing school trustees for 1912 was brought up. It  appears that only those ratepayers who have their names on the  civic voters' list are permitted to  vote in the city. While the: ratepayers living outside the corporate, limits, whether eligible or  not on the city voters' list, still  retain their vote. It seems to  the man in the street that it is.  most unfair��to give the vote on  such an important matter to  ratepayers living without the  city limits, and then to refuse the  franchise to ratepayers within  the city on the grounds that they  are not otherwise eligible for  the voters list.  A by-law to raise $20,000 for  the purchase of a site and erection of a building for a city hall  and fire hall received its first and  second reading and will. be submitted to the ratepayers on election day.  -n. .���     ���    -        ,     ,, m.,, ���    ������        i        7"*      .il/,    '. ���*- ---��� J--"***-^  Pete Smith is employed in.  city now.  the.

KNOCKERS  There is in existence   in the  valley    a    certain     association  which, by means of an exhibition  and prize awards, endeavours to  be of   practical benefit   to the  members. The awards made this  year did not meet with the approval of one or two exhibitors,  and they croaked loudly.    Does  it not occur to them that their  "knocking" is a reflection upon  the integrity of men whose integrity is actually above suspicion ?     The   conduct    of   these  "knockers"  is an insult to the  judges and a sad exhibition of  unsportsmanlike   conduct.

To towns through Ontario.  You can't say where you chme  to when you came west?���Oh,  yes, I came to Brandon.  Now, in your evidence in Vancouver police court you said you  lived in Toronto five' years.  "Wh'-re did you go to then?���No  answer. -  You said Winnipeg?���Well, the  train stopped two hours or so  there.  What was your business in  Winnipeg?���Pianos.  For what firm?���J. J. H. McLean and company.  In Vancouver police court you  said you worked for them five]  years and forgot the name.    Is j  that right?���Mmmmm!  Mr. Grimmett objected to the  latitude of the examination, submitting that the occupation of  the witness was irrelevant. The  witness interjected that "It is a  long line of exposure." Mr.  Maughan: "And you don't like  to be exposed?" Mr. Grimmett:  "The question is only whether or  not this man is a British subject."  The Court: Don't travel so  far afield, Mr. Maughan. I have  allowed considerable latitude.  Mr. Maughan : You lived in  Winnipeg five years ?���About  that.  How.long in Brandon?���Number of years off and on.  The court: You came to B. C.  how long ago Mr. Greig? About  three years ago.  Mr. Maughan:  take up your  Vancouver.  Were you ever naturalized and  made a citizen of the Unit9d  States?���Never in my life.  The court: In any other foreign country?���No, never.  Did you ever take out naturalization papers in Canada? No.  In the year preceding April  1st, 1910, did you tell anyone in  Vancouver that you were an  American citizen?���Not that I  remember, unless it was a joke.  In this police court trial were  you asked that question. Do  you rempmbfr what your answer was?--You have it there.  The answer was  you   might  have told Chief Chamberlin.    Is  that true?  Here couneil again became en-  Where did you  residence?���In  gaged in argument as to the relevance of the testimony.'  Mr. Maughan: The next question to that was "is it so?" And  the answer was "possibly, it  might be."  The court: Was that your answer?--! can't say  your honour.  Then followed quick questions  as to whether or not witness had  taken out naturalization papers,  Mr. Grimmett arguing that the  evidence in the following questions in the Vancouver court referred to papers of application  for naturalization and not naturalization papers. Witness was  not sure whether it took three or  five years to make one a citizen  of the U. S. These were the questions and answers:  Q. You think you took them out your  naturalization papers in Buffalo?  A. I kind of think I did.  Q. And half an hour ago you swore to  me that you did not ?  A. I might have done it.  Q. When did you take out these naturalization papers in Buffalo?  A. A number of years ago if I remember rightly.  Q. You filled  out  the  naturalization  papers and took them out?  A. I think I did.  Q. And that constituted you a citizen  as far as you know?  A. Yes.  The court several times questioned witness as to whether he  meant naturalization or application papers. Mr. Grimmett then  took the witness and the latter  swore positively that he had  never been naturalized as an  American citizen. That his  name was on the provincial  voters list and that he had voted  in the Dominion elections. He  swore that his vote had not been  challenged in the Dominion  elections. He said he might have  told>!#eople here he was born in  Canada.  His honour, in summing up,  stated that there was positive  evidence defendant was born a  British subject. Against that  the evidence was practically nil,  save for statements which he  had made which had no weight  as proof. In view of the lack of  conclusive evidence that defendant had been naturalized as an  American citizen he upheld the  Court of Revision for retaining  his name on the list.  and music. Robert Thomas recited the "Twins'', ahighly humourous and entertaining select on.  Mrs. Tutill, accompanied by Miss  Vair, sang a song which was enthusiastically applauded. G. W.

CONSTANCY OF  PURPOSE WILL WIN  for any man. The greatest successes came from humble beginnings, but constancy of purpose  ���the laying out of a plan and  then everlastingly sticking to it  ���brought the inevitable success. The true Canadian home  has proven the strongest bulwarks against failure in many a  man's career becaase it gave  him a definite object for which  to save and strive and furnished  him with an insight into the  higher ideals that are so essential to progress and presperity.  Of course a home built of flimsy,  shaky, knotty lumber probably  wouldn't have the same influenr-e,  but when built with the kind of  lumber, sash and doors and interior trim we handle they are  truly an inspiration.
