Walkem was in pretty good  i wisl, tliis week, nnd Iii, consequence  everything ran along .smoothly at Ihc,  assi/.e court. Justice Walkem was especially considerate wilh tilts jurors in the  case of Kcgina vs.'Roskoff. The prisoner  was indicted for theft, but, the jury failed  to agree. When the foreman announced  that it would b�� impossible for them to  agree upon averdict Justice Walkem told  ihem that upon the evidence he would  have convicted tho prisoner in live  minutes, but he did not abuse the juror*,  lie gave them credit for being reasonable  men and thanked them for their services.  In hi.s remarks to the members of the  grand jury he was equally happy. lie  said he was aware that comphiinGs had  been made that no attention was paid by  the government to grand jury presentments, but this circumstance should not  determine them not to make any presentment. He assured them that he would  lay any presentment that they might  make before the proper authorities.  The grand jury was composed of the  following: Frank Fletcher. ('. li. Robson, Thomas Madden, Aaron Jvelly, Patrick .1. Russell, Hugh li. Cameron, Charles  Hillyer, Gilbert Stanley, William J. Wilson, Fred .1. Squire. Edward Applewhaite,  .Angus C. Buchanan, Charles W.

They made the following  findings: Regina ovs. McPhee, forgery,  true bill : regina vs. Costello. aggravated  assault, true bill: regina vs. Miles, forcible entry, true bill: regina vs. Scoley,  malicious damage, no bill: regina vs.  Ryan, perjury, no bill: regina. vs. Johnson, seduction, true bill: regina vs. llos-  koff, theft, true bill; regina vs Hurry,  adulteration of milk, true bill.

THE   JMcPHBB   FORGERY   CASE.  Jury Acquits   the   Prisoner  of  the   Charge of  Porting: Names to a Petition.  The case of regina vs. McPhee was the  first   criminal  case   taken  up.   There is  quite a story attached  to  the  case.    In  August, !S9G, the owners of the Yoseniite  claim in the Slocan neglected to perform  the necessary assessment work. The  claim was originally located by Bob and  Neal McDonald of: Sandon, J. D. Moore, J.  M. McPhee and J,, D. McMillan, the last  mentioned being killed by a snow slide at  the mine not long afterwards. The mine  was bonded in 1S93 to S. H. Green, of Saginaw,' for $30,000, and at the time it was  allowed to run out was extensively developed and was a promising looking  property. It is estimated that up to the  time of allowing the property to run out  $10,000 .had been spent upon it by 'the  holder of the bond in addition to the  money which had been paid in consideration of the bond. In August, 1800, the  . Yoseniite was relocated under the name  of the Troy by^Alexander Cummings. Recorder John Keen, of Kaslo, refused to  accept the Cum tilings record on the ground  that the heirs of the deceased miner, J.  I). McMillan, had an interest, in the property and under section I 13 of the Mineral  Act, lS!)(i, provision was made for the administration of tlie property of deceased  miners by the gold commissioner. Cutii-  inings secured an order from justice Mc-  Creight to compel recorder Keen to show  cause why he should not accept the record  of the Troy. The recorder appeared before chief justice Davie in Nelson, who  sustained the recorder's action and Gum-  mings was required to pay all costs.  Shortly after this a petition wassentto  the provincial government at Victoria,  asking for the removal of Keen. After  the petition wras acknowledged several  men who were alleged to have signed the  petition denied having done so. The  original petition was returned from Victoria, the signatures were denounced as  forgeries and McPhee was apprehended  and committed for trial upon the charge  of forging them. A copy of the petition  which caused all the trouble is appended:  Petition lo lhe provincial government, of British Columbia: Wc the undersigned and free miners ofthe  Aiiisworlh mining division of Wesl Ivootenay, I!. C,  pray most urgently that, your honorable corps will at  onci remove from our midst, the dishonorable mining recorder, namely, .lohn Keen, for lhe following reasons:  1st. lie has accepled money on two occasions for  making oul false abstracts of title lo mining men intending to purchase claims, and of which Ihe vendor's license  had run out.

We would siiggesi | hnl .some honorable man such as  O. I". Slone, Mr. i\lcKcnzie, the city auditor, or some  trust, won hy man such as llio-c Iwo mentioned. Keen  will make endless trouble among the miners here if not.  removed at an early dale.  W. A. Macdonald, Q. C, appeared for  the crown, and I.. P. Davis Q. C, aud  W. Galliher for the deJ'ence. The following jurors were entrusted to try the case:  Frederick Stackoy, foreman, VV. L.  Spencer, Alexander Allan, Pred Irvine,  Ernest Kilby, W. II. Seaman, Daniel Me-  Kinary, J_eonard Raynhau, Andrew Clark,  Joseph Greer, William Macey and Daniel  Sullivan.  John Keen, the recorder who figured in  the above petition, was the chief witness  for. the crown. lie was familiar, with the  prisoner's handwriting, and identified  several specimens of it, which went in as  exhibits for several lightweight experts  on handwriting to expert upon. Keen  identified the handwriting in the body of  the petition as thar, of the prisoner, and  was proceeding to discuss the forged signatures thereto when E. P. Davis entered  au objection.  The objection entered by the prisoner's  counsel was that Keen had not been called  as an expert on handwriting. That he  was not called upon to pass an opinion as  to the genuineness of certain signatures,  but was trying to prove that certain  forgeries had been written by a certain  man. This, Mr. Davis contended, was  purely expert evidence aud could only be  given by an expert. The court sustained  this objection, and Keen's opinion as to  who wrote the names did not come out.  To connect McPhee with the petition  the crown then brought out the evidence  from Keen that McPhee was interested in  there-location of-the Yosemite, the record of which he refused to admit, and  that it was shortly after the chief justice  sustained this action that the petition for  his renewal was sent to Victoria.  Messrs. Bongard. Moore, Ryan, Eaton,  and Watts, whose names appeared on the  petition, were put into the box and testified that they had not signed their names  to the petition nor had they authorized  anyone else to do so.  T. J. Lendrum and Edward Bawn testified tJiat in conversations with them  McPhee complained of Keen's action in  refusing to admit the record on the relocation of the Yosemite aud said something about a petition, but they did not  clearly remember just what he said.  To fasten the forgery of the several  names upon McPhee, the crown called the  managers of the Kaslo banks and several  other bank officials and ex-bank officials  as experts iu handwriting, but their evidence was even more unsatisfactory than  expert evidence usually is. With respect  to the forged signatures they differed very  much in their opinions as to which were  the work of McPhoe and which were  forged by some one else. None agreed  that McPhee forged them all.  George Marsh was produced by the defence as an expert. lie had given the  signatures more attention than any of  the other experts, and althougli he "was  very nervous, he contradicted the evidence of all the crown's experts. He was  very sweeping in his denials, and withal  was a very good witness for the prisoner.  Justice Walkem, in charging the jury  instructed the jurors that if they were  satisfied beyond a reasonable doubt that  McPhee wrote any one of the names, other  than his own, they should bring in a verdict of guilty. With respect to the alleged signature of McPhee the court observed that it was a remarkable circumstance that whereas the signatures of  "John McPhee'' was appended to. the document in question the signatures known  to be those of McPhee were invariably "J.  M. McPhee."  The case was given to the jurors at 3:50  o'clock, and after uO minutes' deliberation  they brought in a verdict of not guilty.  COSTELLO   GOT   OFF   EASY  For Kicking. Lawyer Cronyn in the Head In  a Dispute in Rossland.  The case of regina vs. Costello was taken  up Tuesday afternoon. This case originated in Rossland in September. Peter  Costello, the prisoner, was at the time in  the employ of W. li. Davey, who had the  contract for putting in the Rossland sewer  system. A cave-in occurred on the work  and a man named Youngclaus was  killed as a result. At the coroner's inquest Edward Cronyn was retained to look  after the interests of the heirs of the deceased and to locate the responsibility for  his death. In this capacity he secured an  order from coroner Bowes to examine the  ditch where the cave-in occurred. He  took David Lawson along with him. At  the point where the cave-in occurred he  found a man named Hamilton on guard  wearing a policeman's badge, and another  man who was afterwards identified as the  prisoner Costello. These men claimed  they were there for the purpose of preventing anyone from interfering with the  ditch in accordance with instructions received from tlie coroner. There was a  protest made against Cronyn's going into  the ditch, but upon his production of the  coroner's order, Hamilton said said  that  Cronyn could go down, into t.he ditch but.  I Lawson could not. Lm\v.-oii has ,-i knowledge of sewer work, and Cronyn wanted  him to go into the ditch, but in tin- laee  of Hamilton's object inn.,Lawson refii-ed  to do so. Cronyn then' went into the  ditch himielf and proceeded in lakecei-  tain measurements, caliitnr the ,-nnie out  to Lawson. lie then gathered up a handful of the dirt out of the side of the ditch,  when Hamilton told him that he could  not take the dirt away. Cronyn replied  that he would try to take, it away. He  packed the dirt into a ball, and mounting  an elevation in the ditch caused by the  cave-in, offered the dirt to Lawson. but  Lawson refused to take it. Cronyn then  made an effort to raise himself oul, of the  ditch with the dirt in one hand, resting  his arms upon the side of the ditch for  this purpose. ' Hamilton cried oui "knock  the dirt out of his hands," while Cronyn  was in the act of raising himself. Costello  then advanced within eighteen inches of  Cronyn and lucked him on the jaw, rendering him unconscious and causing him to  fall down into the ditch, from which he  was removed in an unconscious state.  The jury for the case was selected iu a  few minuter Hon. T. Mayne Daly, who  defended the prisoner, challenged David  Curtice, George F. Motion, George W.  Aldous, and F. W. Swannell. and A. W.  Macdonald asked Joseph Parkin, Jerry  Robilliard, John Hldrieh, Michael Burns  and W. J. 11. McKernau to stand aside.  The accepted jurors were: Henry Dti-  hamel, Fred Jar vis, Charles Munro, James  Smart, Robert J. Elliott, Robert L-iIdtirh,  George Stead, Charles Lamonte, Thomas  Booth, Joseph Duhamel, George DeMaiiu;  and John J. DriscolJ.  The crown had two eye-witnesses ofthe  kicking, and easily proved the assault.  The defence endeavored to show i hat the  prisoner, Costello. had no intention to injure Cronyn. and that tlie kick was intended for Cronyn's hand i'or the purpose of  knocking the dirt out of it.  Justice Walkem in his charge expressed  the opinion that the charge of assault to  do bodily harm was clearly proven. Costello iu kicking at Cronyn for any purpose was doing an unlawful act, and  therefore was responsible for the effect of  his action. He ridiculed the plea that it  was a gentle kick which Costello aimed at  Cronyn, in view of the 'evidence that it  was sufficient to knock him insensible into  the bottom of the ditch, lie considered  that the charge of aggravated assault had.  been proven, but the jury could find him  guilty as indicted or they could acquit, or  they could find the prisoner guilty of common assault. The penalty for aggravated  assault was three years' imprisonment o>-  less at the discretion of the com t.  The jury retired at 12:lo o'clock, and  upon court resuming at 1:30 o'clock, a  verdict of common assault was rendered.  Justice Walkem sentenced the prisouerto  six months' imprisonment at hard labor.  Justice Walkem sprung a surprise upon  those in attendance upon the court Thursday, evening by reversing his judgment  in the Costello case. He said that in cases  of common assault it was optional with  the court to impose a fine or sentence the  prisoner to ji term of imprisonment. At  the time of passing sentence upon Costello he had overlooked this fact, and in  view of Costello's business interests in  Rossland he had since seen fit to impose a  fine instead of imprisomeut. He asked  W. A. Macdonald, Q. C, crown prosecutor, whether he had anything to say with  respect to the imposition of a fine instead  of imprisonment. Mr. McDonald replied  that he had no feeling in the matter whatever. Justice Walkem then imposed a  fine of $100 upon Costello instead of imprisonment for six months. ,  Paddy Miles Gets Three Months. ,  The case of Regina vs. Miles did not occupy much time. It was really another  phase of Miles' courtship of Mrs. McDonald. Early in September Mrs. McDonald  was a patient in the Kootenay Lake General hospital, and on the evening of September 11th, John Miles having accumulated a "jag," made up his mind to call  upon the patient. He called, and desired  to see the patient outside the hospital,  but the matron of the institution refused  to countenance any such meeting outside.  This angered Miles, and he proceeded  forthwith to make a nuisance of himself  by forcing his way into the hospital and  cursing and applying obscene names to  all the female attendants with whom he  came in contact. Miles kept up a series  of attacks upon the institution for about  three hours. W. Galliher appeared for  Miles, but there was a, clear case against  his client. The jury, composed of Pred  Starkey, Scott Thompson, Pred Irvine,  W. II. Seaman, Ernest Kilby, William  Macey, James McDonald, George Stephen-  soil, (ieorge F. Motion, Leonard Raynham,  John Eldrich tmd Daniel Sullivan, returned a verdict of guilty after a few  minutes consultation. Justice Walkem  sentenced Miles to three months imprisonment. It will be remembered that  Miles was before judge Forin on two  other occasions for breaches of the peace  in connection with the same courtship.  Once for an assault on Billy Cougal and  again for assaulting Mrs. McDonald.  The Seduction Case Goes Over.  The case of regina vs. Johnson will not  come on until tlie next assi/.e. In this  case Alfred Johnson is charged with seducing a Kaslo girl named Martha Parolo,  under promise of marriage. A. J. Wheal-,  ler, of Kaslo, has charge of the defence  in the case. At the preliminary hearing  of the ease at Kaslo ou Saturday, Martha  Parolo testified that Johnson had promised to marry her, but, afterwards went  back on his word. lie at one time had  offered her $ 100 as a settlement, but she  thought it too little and asked him for  $l,.-)l)f), which he refused to pay.  TROUBLE   IN   STORE' FOR   HORRY.  Fraudulent   Adulteration   Practised   by   Milk.  Vendor Exposed by Analysis  Tin:    ii'pori    of   the    analyst   upon   the  sii m| Ji'-,- of milk submit ted to  him   by Dr.  LaBau. iiicdii-.-il health  officer, will   prove  rat her inleresl ing reading to t he c-ou-iiusers of milk in t'iie city of Nel.-on.    In most  cities it, is generally known that, milk vendors increase their slock in I ratio by add-  , ing -quantities of water, but  Nel.-on  evidently has a milk dealer  who has  milk  adulteration down to a fine art.    Twenty  samples of local 'milk were submitted to  the analyst for examination, as well as  two samples of Spokane milk. Of the  local milk it was found that five samples  had been adulterated by the addition of  large quantities of water and some fatty  matter; four samples showed water adulterations ranging all the way from 20 per  cent to 27 per cent,; one sample evidenced-  water and probably skimming; one sample  was pronounced a genuine normal milk;  and nine were given tlie benefit of the  doubt.and pronounced probably genuine.  The Spokane milk was probably genuine,  but one samplo was rather low.  The analysis was made'by A. II. Hol-  dich, the samples beiug indicated merely  by numbers or letters. His report upon  the same follows:  This has  w:\ rer to  tori*  Report of Analyst Holdich.  To Tilt" Mayor and Coui'ouatiox t)i-'  tiik Citv ok Nui,sox: I have the honor  of submitting to you the results of my  analysis of 22 samples of milk received  from Dr. LaBau, October 7th to 0th last,  which he requested me to examine. Some  of the samples are undoubtedly genuine  milk, some are questionable, but will pass  the public analyst's standard, whilst  others are unmistakably adulterated, not  only by adding water, but also by adding  some other ingredient containing oil or  fat, which brings the "total fat" up to a  point hitherto unknown in genuine milk  except under extraordinary conditions of  feeding and health, and taken with the  lar too low "solids not fat*' indicates without doubt some rather ingenious manipulation.  It is right,to say that the standard fixed  by public analysts i'or genuine milk is the  amount of "fat"'and "solids not fat" found  in the poorest known sample of genuine  milk, and when any sample is offered for  sale that, on analysis, falls as low as that,  it is u--ual to say that while it just equals  the standard, there can be no reasonable  doubt - that it lias been watered or  skimmed or both. With respect to the  question���What else besides water has  been added to the milk? I respectfully  submit that it is unnecessary for the purpose of obtaining a conviction for adulteration, to ascertain that point. It is  enough that the milk has been adulterated by fraudulent addition of water. I  may add, however, that sugar is the usual  thing to add to bring up the specific gravity to the normal point, and occasionally  stilt or borax to act as a preservative, but  no expensive substances or such as are  not easy to obtain are likely to be employed. For the purpose of comparison,  1 subjoin a low genuine milk: Total  solids, 11.")%; fat, 2.J)/': solids, not fat,  0%; and when "solids not fat" are below  that figure or even down to it, there is no  question about its being watered. It is a  most unusual circumstance.for the fat in  milk to reach 0 ���%. A rather'high average  is'3.5 to 1 %, so that when the percentage  of "solids not fat" are below 0 %, whilst  the fat is ;*3 or 0 %, there can be no doubt  that sophistication has been practised.

John Campbell, Dr. La  Ban aud A .11. Holdich was taken for the  purpose of identifying certain samples of  milk which had been taken from Hurry's  milk-wagon for the purpose of analysis.  Their evidence was that samples entered  as No. 0, No. 1, C, D, 15, F, G. 11, f and K  in A. II. Holdich's report were samples  taken from Hurry's wagon. Upon the  result of ��� Holdich's analysis of the said  samples magistrate Crease committed  Hurry for trial before the assi/.e court.  The case was given to the grand jury  the same afternoon and a true bill was returned. Late during the day justice  Walkem called the case and Hurry took  his place in the prisoner's box. Hurry  was informed that in accordance with the  Dominion statutes, he had the right to,  elect: trial either by jury or by judge  without a jury. He elected trial by judge.  W. Galliher. who appeared for the defence, informed the court thtit his client  could not be'ready in--ide of a week. In  view of this justice Walkem  set the trial  , for Thursday, October 20th.  _  The Jury Disagrees.  The jury disagreed in the case of Hegina  vs. R.iskoff. The prisoner. John Jliskoff,  was charged with; the theft of $00 in $20  notes from a room occupied by Roger  Hopkins of the Hall Mines smelter,  iliskoff was ..employed under Hopkins at  the smelter and was in the habit of going  to Hopkins** room 'upon errands. The day  before the money was missed by Hopkins  Iliskoff was known to have been in Hopkins' room without warrant. He left the  city shortly after,-.purchasing'a-.ticket  over the N. & F. S. railway, for which he  tendered a $20 bank note in payment,  which note was identified by Hopkins as-  one of those stolen from him. W. Galliher defended the prisoner. The jurors  were F. VV. Swannell, Alexander Allan,  William if. Seaman,, William Macey,  John Fldrich, W. Herring, Joseph  Greer, Jerry llobillard, Daniel Sullivan,  George F. Motion. George Stephenson and  Andrew Clarke. After several hours' deliberation they reported that they could  not agree  for further  they   were   no  when the court was ready to rise at noon  justice Walkem dismissed them. In doing so he told the jurors that, to him the  charge of theft had been clearly proved,  tind that had the .man appeared before  him for speedy trial he would have sentenced Iii in in five minutes. Further than  this justice Walkem said he had nothing  tosay. He was sure the jurors had carefully considered the case, antl since they  could not agree upon a verdict he did not  wish to learn how they stood, lie had  no wish to to punish them by refusing to  take a verdict of disagreement. The effect  of it would be that the trial would be  gone over again.   _  The Prisoner Acquitted.  .A now jury was drawn in the case at  the close of ,the argument in the Center  Star-Iron Mask motion. It was composed  of Fred Starkey, James Smart, Joseph  Duhamel, Fred Irvine. Scott Thompson,  (ieorge Stead. George Aldous. W. L.  Spencer, F. W. .farvis, Charles Lamonte.  A. 15. Lott, and T. B. .May. The evidence  was gone over, and upon the close of the  case justice 'Walkem charged strongly  against the prisoner, .and plainly intimated that the jury should render a verdict of guilty. The jury retired for about  five minutes and returned with a verdict,  of not guilty. The prisoner was discharged without: comment.  The court sent them back  consideration, but as  nearer   to an   agreement  EODWELL   MAKES   A   GOOD   SHOWING  For the Iron Mask Company in Its Fight w'uli  the Oc-mer Star Company.  The light  li.-t wi'i-n i Im Ct-n: i-i- S'.n i Al i. -  ing  company and  the   Iron   .\la-k   .Minmir  company  over  tin- (pic-lion   uf  iii_ apt-:*,  of a certain \<lu ii--iiiiied  au   intci e.->t ing  phase  Tliur-d-iy  morning   when   Hon. T.  .Mayne Daly, on behalf of llu- Ci-nli-i-Star  Mining company, made an application bi-  forc jusf ico Walkem  for   the cont innaut-c  of   an   injunction    restraining   ihe   lion  Mask company from carrying on   fuither  work    upon    the   vein   in   cpte.-tion.      Mr.  Daly  contended that tinder   tin-   tninVia)  act of 1801 the  Ceuier Star com pa i.y hail  extra lateral rights and had .power lo follow the dip and angles uf a vein   beyond  their side lines where the vein apexed on  their ground.    He pointed out t lui_ under  the act cited the prior location   had   prior  rights.    To make the po.-iiioii of the Center Star clear in   this   respect   he   .-Lated  that   the   Center  Star   was  located  July  7th,      1SO0,    and    ihe    Iron    Mask    July  23rd,      JS00.        The     vein      in     cine.-,i ion  apexed   on   the Center   Star  ground, und  he claimed  that 1 he Cent er Star company  had followed the dip of  the vein with its  tunnel.    He slated   briefly thai   lhe Center Star company desired" the injunction  in  order   that   they  -liould   have   three  mouths  in which to determine  beyond a  shadow of a doubt that the vein in (piestion apexed upon the Center Star ground.  E. V. Bod well, who opposed   the  application  on   behalf of the  Iron Mask company made out a  very .-troug ca.-e why  the application should not be gianied. lie  not only denied  that the vein in question  apexed upon the, Center Star ground, but  he denied the plaintiff company's right lo  be upon the Iron Mask ground at all.    Jle  stated   that   there  was   no  statute   and  never had been any statute which authorized   a   miner to  follow a vein  outside of  his own linos unless he followed  the vein  upon its dip.    No man had ever heard the  proposition advanced  that a level tunnel  followed the clip of a vein.    Any working  which follows the dip of a vein  must follow   it'downwards.    The   incline  of  tlie  vein isthe dip and the trend of the vein  is its strike.   The statute' which  defines  extra lateral rigJits says that the miner  must follow the vein  in  its  course downwards, and no vein can be followed beyond  the sidelines excepton thedip. Therenever  was a provision for following the strike of  a vein beyond the side lines and such cannot  be done  without  trespassing.     The  proposition-of the Center Star company  was'that they have been trespassing, and  in the course of that  trespass  they have  discovered   an   ore body   upon   the   lion  Mask ground ; they therefore wish   to enjoin the Iron Mask company from   woik-  ing the Iron Mask   vein until  the Center  Star    company   shall    have ' had    three  months in which to demonstrate whether  their theory is correct that  the  vein   in  dispute apexes upon their ground.   Under  the   Iron   Mask   crown   giant   the'   lion  Mask      company      has      a       right       to  all the mineral within  the limits of   the  claim   and   no one  is  given  any right,  lo  iuterfere with such right until   tliey have  clearly demonstrated  a   better title.    To  demonstrate this  butter right it must,  be  established   to   the  satisfaction   of    the  court  that  in the first  place  the vein   in  dispute apexes  upon   the ground  of  the  miner  claiming the  better  right, that it  has a  certain  dip and   that  it proceeds  from   the side lines of his claim   into  the  adjoining   claim.   ,'Mr. ��� Bodwell   argued  that  the, injunction  should  not  be continued  for the  reason  that it  had   been  obtained upon misrepresentai ion.    It was   .  a direct misrepresentation to say that the  Center Star had  followed   the dip of the  vein in epiestion  by running a level   tunnel.   TJiis.''misrepresentation was so apparent that it should   have mislead none,  but it apparently had mislead judge J;"orin  who granted  the original injunction.   In  thesecond   place  the order wtis granted  upon the express undertaking of the Center Star  company to  do'no   more   work  upon    the   vein    in    question.     In     the  face      of       this     the      company      had  worked   straight  'along   .until   Saturday  last and when cautioned  had stated that  they   would   take  their  chances of  contempt.    Mr.-'Bodwell not only asked that  the existing injunction  be dissolved, but  that t.he Center Slareompany lie enjoined  from,doing  further work   upon   the   Iron  Mask ground.  Hon. .Mr. Daly made a lengthy reply lo  argument of Mr. Bodwell. He expressed  a willingness on the part of the Center  Star company to con set to almost anything provided the court would restrain  the Iron Mask company from mining the  ore body discovered in the "trespassers',  tunnel." tis Mr. Bodwell termed it, and  permit the Center Star company to continue work upon the shaft which is being  sunk to connect with the ore body in.dispute. He explained that the Center Star  company was not in contempt for continuing the work upon the -haft, as their  undertaking was merely that work should  be stopped in the tunnel.  Mr. Bodwell resisted the application  that the Center Stareou.ipany bepemiiled  to continue work upon the shaft. He  field that the Centre Star company had  no legal right to continue any such trespass tind that the granting of such right  might enable them,to manufacture evidence to the prejudice of the Iron Ma-I*  company upon the trial ol tin-action.  Justice Walkem said he would gi\e Indecision upon the application iu a few  days.  Assessed SS Each.  1).   S.   Trainer,   A.   J.

SATURDAY MORNING  .octobei:  IS_7  Somio ugly rumors reach  Nelson   from  time   to   time  respecting  the treatment  meted  out   to   the  men  employee]   upon  the grade of (.lie Crow's Nest rail ,vay.    It  is generally reported that men are brought  from pastern Canada under an agreement  to work on the road for a specified rate of  wage?.    These men, upon arriving on the  ground are confronted  with new  condition?.    By a system of book-keeping they  are required to put in more days to make  a month's work than there are days on  the calendar.   They are compelled to pay  an  advanced  price   for   board  over and  above the ti mount stated  to chem  in the  east, and they are also charged up  with  $*j0 for  transportation  over the C. P. R.  to the scene of employment.   The effect  of these new conditions is that it will require the navvy to work something more  than a month before he can wipe out his  obligations to the  railway company.   As  a result some refuse Lo work at all while  others sometimes  work a few days and  skip out  when they get  a chance.     All  this is bad enough, but according to the  reports .of men fresh from the scene, the  mounted policemen are employed by the  railway company to enforce  their  hard  labor    contracts,   and    imprisonment   is  meted out to thoee who jump the job. As  this railway work will not be finished for  the next twelve months Tin-: Tribune directs attention to the hardships which it  is alleged are imposed upon the Canadian  workman   upon   the  road.     The  Crow's  Nest   railway  is l being   built   with   the  money of the taxpayers of Canada.    The  government, in its generosity, has decided  that  when completed, the road shall  be  the property of the Canadian Pacific Railway company.    It will not, therefore, be  improper to suggest that the government  that is so generous, to  the  railway company  should  show some   justice  to  the  Canadian taxpayers employed as navvies  upon the railway.  Till-: supreme court of Canada on Tuesday threw, out the appeal of  the .Dunsmuirs agtiinst the constitutionality of the  coal   mines act,  which  prevents the employment of Chinese underground  in the  collieries of   Vancouver   Island.    Tlie  supreme     court    held     that    it   had    no  jurisdiction.     The white miners of Vancouver  Island   are  having   a hard   time  in   making   the   owners    of    the    Dunsmuir collieries observe the laws passed by  the legislature, but the probabilities are  .that  they  will  ultimately succeed.    For  years the provincial government did what  ib could to defeat the wishes of the miners  to promote the safety of their lives, and  even yet the government is  merely lukewarm upon the inatter of enforcing any  regulations which interfere with the dividend earning qualities of the  Dunsmuir  collieries.   The Colonist  would have the  people of this province believe  that the  /.eal which the provincial government has  ever shown in safeguarding the Dunsmuir  dividends is not affected   by the political  influence which   the  Dunsmuir  interests  wield.  "A.Mo.vi,' the enterprises in connection  " with which the government has been  ������ assailed are the Nakusp ic Slocan rail-  " way, the Kaslo ic Slocan, the Nelson  " ic   Fort   Sheppard,   and    the   Coluni-  " bia <.t AVestern   railways.     Vet   these  ''are      the     enterprises     which ���   have  " made the great development of Koote-  '��� u:iy possible.   Ic may be a matter of sur-  " pri.-se that characterless papers on the  ���',coa��t as-ail the government lor having  '" been instrumental   in   promoting these  " great works; but it is inconceivable why  " the press of ivootenay should ever have  " uttered   a   word   in    condemnation   of  '���' them." The above is from theColonist, it  is a sample ofthe rot  that  is appearing  daily in a paper edited by tt man who has  not been long enough in   the  province to  know its public men by sight.  For this rea-  s in it matters very little whether the policy  of the press of Kootenay be inconceivable  C> him or  not.    The  press  of  Ivootenay  does   not   condemn   the  government   for  hiving as-isted the building of the Nelson  ic Fore Sheppard railway.    Its condemnation   is   called    forth    by    the    government's   action   iii   allowing   the  railway  company to travel  beyond the provisions  of the act of the legislature which set out  -upon what terms the company would be  entitled to certain crown land-.    It is because the executive in its haste to meet  the wishes of the N. & F. S. Railway company disregarded the finding of the full  court  that  the  press of   Kootenay condemns it.    With  respect to the Kaslo ic  Slocan rail way it is doubtful if the Colonist can refer to a single instance in which  the   press   of   Kootenay condemned  the  government for granting such assistance  as it did  to this road.    With  respect to  the  Nakusp   tfc   Slocan   railway job  the  press of Ivootenay in common  with  the  independent press of the province' condemned the government, not for granting assistance to such a railway, but i'or  an utter lack of judgment in the manner  of granting  such  assistance.    That this  condemnation was deserved is evidenced  by the circumstance that long before the  editor of the Colonist came to this province  the government had given over any defence of its action in that respect, or cowardly   shoved    the    responsibility   upon  chief   justice   Davie.      The   government  policy with  respect to  the  Columbia ic  AVestern   railway   has   been  condemned  aud deservedly so. , Tt  was  so arranged  that F. Aug. I-Ieinze was permitted to secure a heavy land subsidy for a tramway  constructed for the sole purpose of hauling ore from the  Rossland mines to his  smelter at Trail, a work  which  was completed before  the  Columbia Sc Western  Railway act was passed.'  The people and  press of Kootenay refuse to be made apologists for any government by reason of  the circumstance that Kootenay happens  to be the field of the government's  blundering.    Kootenay is able to work out its  own  destiny.    Its  people are not to  be  bribed like those of Victoria with promises  of railway subsidies and   imposing  parliament buildings.  Tin-; action of justice Walkem in reversing his sentence upon Peter Costello  caused muchuufavorablecomment. When  Costello was upon trial for assault with  intent to do bodi^ harm,-justice Walkem  pressed strongly for a verdict of guilty.  The jury brought in a verdict of common  -assault and justice "Walkem promptly sentenced Costello to six months' imprisonment at hard labor. On the following  day, in view of Costellb's business interests at Rossland, justice Walkem reversed  his sentence of six mouths' imprisonment  at hard labor and imposed a fine of $100.  Since justice Walkem considered Costello  guilty of assault, with intent to do bodily  harm, his action of Thursday night may  fairly be taken to mean that $100 fine is  sufficient'punishment when the'prisoner-  has- business interests which may suffer  during his confinement.  "Tnoi'GH the Kootenain is opposed to  " the Turner government, because we be-  " lieve it to be, in the main, a dangerous  ."��� bungler, truth -compels us to acknowl-  " edge that so far as local improvements  " are concerned, Kaslo has fared very  " well, and though not altogether satis-  ��" fied, because there tire a few more things  " we need and want badly, we have no  "'kick coming," to use a little homely  " slang." The above clipping from the  Kootenaian of Kaslo is being republished  in the Turner government organ throughout the province for the purpose of leading people to believe that the government  has a following in Southern Kootenay.  Premier Turner and his colleagues must  be a sorry crowd since the above is the  best press notice they can secure. On the  face of it it means that although the  mombersof premier Turner's cabinet are  "dangerous bunglers" they have given  Kaslo certain needed local improvements,  and for this reason all the blunders should  be covered up.  Free Postage to Be Abolished.  The postol'fice department has sent out  instructions   to  postmasters   throughout  the Dominion calling  for  returns of the  number of newspapers mailed under the  provisions of the free postage regulations.  The postmaster-general, ,it is said, con-  tempiates|the abolition of the system of  the free carriage through the mails  of newspapers sent out to bona fide subscribers from offices of publication. It is  possible, too, that new regulations are  proposed, which   will   prevent abti-es  of  the system by publications not- properly  coming within the intent and meaning of  the law.   ROAD   TAX   DECIDED   UPON.  It Will be Due and Payable at the Collector's  OiHce on October 30th.  Theconsideration of a by-law,for the  levying of a road tax upon theadult males  in thu city was, the chief business'that  came before the city council at Wednesday afternoon's meeting. The first reading of the by-law was moved by alderman Dow, seconded by alderman Alalone.  The by-law received its third reading and  will be,finally adopted at Friday afternoon's session. It provides that till male  persons between the ages of 21 and ,*i0  years, residing within the city limits,  shall pay .$2 per head. The tax for this  year is made payable at the office of the  city collector on or before October .'With.  The petition from P. 10.

The twenty-seventh regular meeting of  the city council was held Monday afternoon. Those present were mayor Houston and aldermen Dow, Gilker, Hillyer  aud Teetzel.  H. II. Macdonald had a communication  before the council amending his lender  I'or the construction of section "IB" of the  sewer system, the price i'or the work being changed from $1,IoM.*_o to $1,28'.).  Mayor Houston announced that he had  also received amended tenders front Breckenridge & Lund and from Onslow Newling, but that Macdonald's tender, as  amended, was still the lowest. On motion  of alderman Teetzel, seconded by alderman Gilker, the tender of Macdonald was  accepted.  ,J. JM. JBell, F. D. Wright and John Feler-  son had a communication before the conn-'  cil asking for permission to string wires  on the streets and alleys of the city for a  company to be known as the .Nelson Messenger company.  On motion of alderman Hillyer, seconded by alderman Teet/.el, it was decided  to grant the application, provided that  the messenger company pay the same license fee imposed upon the electric light  and telephone companies, and that no  poles be erected without the written consent of the mayor.  The report of A. 11. Holdich, showing  the analysis of,milk samples submitted to  him for examination was read and received/ ;  Messrs. Breckenridge & Lund had a  communication before the council for certain'extra's upon the reservoir aud flume  cou tract. They asked to be allowed $3o0  for removing 200 yards of rock from the  reservoir which was not provided for in  the contract, and $175 for drilling, blasting, and removing 100 yards of rock on  flume line. They claimed extras under a  third head, that of hauling and breaking  rock for the puddle, but they left it for  the council to fix what their remuneration  should be for this service. Their force tic-  count was rendered at $!)23.80, which,  added to their other claim for extras,  $525, gives a total of $1-1-18.80 as extras.  In dealing with the matter of extras,  alderman Hillyer moved, seconded by  alderman Teet/.el, that Breckenridge &  Lund be paid $381.15 iu full for claims for  force and extra work in reservoir and  head works at Anderson creek, and for  moving loose rock in flume line. This  added to the sum of $300, which was paid  oh October Uth, makes a total of $081.15  which has been allowed for extras.  On motion of alderman Gilker, seconded  by alderman Teetzel, the council authorized the payment of $1200 to Breckenridge  account   of their reservoir  & Lund   on  contract.

Mayor Houston  was authorized to contract for the work.  Mayor Houston stated that he had received a letter from the president of the  N. & F. S. Railway Company, proposing  that a road be built to Mountain siding,  and offering to bear the expense of the  same from the siding to the city limits,  provided the city would do thu balance.  The council decided to accept the offer,  and to call for tenders for the  grading of the road to the city limits.  The tenders are required to be in at the  next meeting of the council on Monday  afternoon.   Ingersoll's Idea of a Man.  Col. llob't G. ingersoll is a great lover of  happy homes. He gets off the following:  "The place to get the true measure of a  man is not in the market place nor amen  corner, not the forum nor the field, but at  his own fireside. There he lays aside his  mask and you may learn whether he's imp  or angel, king or cur, hero or humbug.  I care not what the world says of him���  whether it crowns him with glory or pelts  him with bad eggs. I care not a copper  what his reputation or religion may be.  If his babies dread his home-coming and  his better half swallows her heart every  time she has to ask him for a five-dollar  bill, he's a fraud of the first water, even  though he prays night and morn till he's  black in the face and shouts hallelujah  till he shakes the eternal hills. But if his  children rush to the front gate to meet  him, and love's own sunshine illumes the  face of his wife when she hears his footfall, you can take it for granted that's  true   gold-  his home's  heaven, and   the  Men Employed For Nine Woolcs Average Sixty-  Six Cents Per Week Over Expenses.  lAirt   Steele   JYospeclor:      During' the  past week a considerable number of men  reached here from the line of the Crow's  Nest railway east of here.    Most of them  are  "broke."     They  all   come   with  the  same tale of ill-treatment and  failure on  I he part of tiie railway company to carry  out tlieir agreements and promises.    Last  week we gave some particulars.    We can  now give   something   more   definite.   J.  Jvohoe,  F.  Forbes  and   D. Simmons,  arc  three young men from Trenton, Oat. They  came here a few days ago from   working  on  the  C. i\.  H..' and  tell   the   following  story.   They say they were employed in  the east to come out and   work   on  the  railway.     The    arraiigement    was   that  their fares were to be paid and they were  to receive $1.50 a day wages, with  board  at   $.">.:"() a   week.    They came   out   and  worked  all together 52 days.    The company's account with each of them was the  following:  I'oi; mm! wkkics' WOHl'  To 52 days (" S1..10   Less R'y fare to -Macleod    "   Fare Macleod to I'nss   "   board, il weeks (" SI.Ml   forwarding mail matter  their own hook, and take chances of business, as we have to take them, we have  no objed ions at'all. But any line iu such  territory, other than the C. P. R., iiui"',  you will readily see, necessarily ally itself  with the American system south ot the  boundary, and that must take business  away from British Columbia and from  Vancouver. Such a line is not to be permittee!. I only mention it because'in the  the near future you will be approached  for a handsome bonus for Mich a line'. The  line the C. P. Li. propose to build by way  of Pentieton and Hope gives Vancouver  everything that can be desired in southern British Columbia on the coast."  the winners were respectively Veracity,  Tyrone, and L ibster.

If what they tell us is true, and  there is no reason to doubt it, they are  being most grossly ill used.  In extenuation of the position of the  company we are told that it is the intention only to withhold the amount charged  for railway fares till the work is finished  or until the men have worked six months,  when it will be paid over to them. But  what authority has the company for doing this? When men have earned their  wages they are entitled to be paid. The  pay is being withheld in order to coerce  the men to work for wages that are below a living wage. The price of board is  being constantly increased. The men are  now being charged $5.00 a week. Surely  this sort of thing is intolerable.  In the above bill of charges against the  men, the item "forwarding mail matter"  is for the service of carrying a mail bag  along the line. If 1,000 men are employed  the revenue, at 50 cents a '..mouth from  each man, would amount to $2,000 per  month in the aggregate. It would be a  fat job to have that contract, seeing that  the two men who are employed to make  fortnightly trips along the fine, are each  paid only about $00 a month to perform  the service. We would like to know into  whose pockets the balaifce of the money  exacted from the men for this service  goes. ..'If'thin outrage is being perpetrated  in the manner that we are informed it is  being done, there never was a more disgraceful thing heard tell of in the records  of railway building atrocities.  Another item iu the above bill is that  for "lodging in company's cabins." Those  cabins are built by the company or the  contractors for the use of the men, but a  moment's reflection will show that the  men are being made to pay dearly for the  comforts afforded them. If the charges  were kept up for a year, you could almost  build Italian palaces out of the accretions.  Is it to be wondered at that the men  are quitting the service? The whole proceeding is an imposition upon the people  of this province. In a few months these  men will be out of employment/and being  left with little or no means as a result of  their work, will, many of them, be a  charge on the B.C. public.  The Coast Short Line.  , In discussing railway matters with the  Vancouver board of trade last week Sir  William Van Home said with respect to  the proposed short line to the coast: "A  word or two on another subject. Among  several railway schemes ou foot is one  called the Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern.  It is an ambitious scheme to build a railway from the coast through southern  British Columbia to the Columbia river.  I would like to tell you simply what the  position of the C. P. II. is with regard to  southern British Columbia'. The company projected a line from the Crow's  Nest Pass by way of Nelson and Robson  to the vicinity of Pendicton to connect  with its main line at Hope. This was  projected seven or eight years ago. For  several years the company had engineers  in the field, indeed, all through southern  British Columbia.  "By the end of next year the company's  line will be built substantially from its  main line at Dunraore to Robson, on the  Columbia, and no doubt before that time  steps will have been taken and considerable of the road built from the Columbia  river westward. Yrou can readily see that  with the vast amount of money that the  C. P. Ii. has invested in various lines in  British Columbia, and with the large sum  invested in the Crow's Nest Pass line,  that it cannot reasonably be expected  to allow some other company to occupy  the territory between the Columbia river  and the Praser valley. Of course if anybody  else  has  money to build there on  The   Exports   From   Southern   Kootenay   For  October Will Aggregate $900,000 in Values.  . Southern Kootenay continues to give a  good account of itself in the inatter of  mineral exports. It was rather an off  week for the Slocan, owing to the fact  that the entries I'or the bulk of the shipments from the silver camp did not reach  the port of Nelson in time to be included  in the returns for this week. The total  value of the Slocan exports for the week  was entered at $02,(S00, but the indications  are t hat the returns I'or the week endiug  October .SOth will be Lhe heaviest in the  history of the district. The bulk of the  exports i'or the current week ciiirie from  the Trail smelter, the same being appraised at over $1*30,000. The indications are  that the exports for the current month  will exceed in value $000,000, and that  during the winter months the million  mark will be reached.

London, Oct. 20.���-The Daily Chronicle  this morning, commenting upon the death  in Cuba last week of  W. Hughes,  correspondent of Black and White of London,  who is said to have starved to death in  the streets of Havana after having been  maltreated   and   robbed   by a party  of  Spauish guerrillas, says:   "If the story of  his   death   is   true,  fresh   execration   of  Spanish action willarise and  the British  government may have something to say."  Hughes was found dead on the Prado last  Thursday night.    He had recently visited  Piiiar del llio with a pass from the military government.   It is said that while  there a.party of Spanish officers assaulted  him  and  robbed him of every thing he  had except his clothing.   Hughes, it is alleged,   appealed    to   the   military   commander to'help him  and demanded  the  restitution of his property, but was only  laughed at.    He was obliged to return to  Havana, walking the entire distance, and  reached   the city ragged   and   starving.  Haviug lost his passport he could not establish his identity or communicate with  his  friends  in ^England.   He' starved   to  death in the streets. '.Hughes.had earned  an excellent reputation as  a  war correspondent in Africa, having followed the  Soudan expedition' and travelled iu western Africa.    His father is a retired British  army surgeon. " c  Windsor Destroyed by Fire.  The town of Windsor, N". S., was destroyed by fire on Sunday. The fire broke  out in the business center. A high wind  carried the flames in all directions and  made a clean sweep of everything.  Churches, public institutions, banks and  residences were destroyed. Over 3,000  people were rendered homeless. The  property loss is estimated at $2,500,000,  insurance $500,000. .John Mclntyre, a  well known citizen, was arrested on  Thursday, charged with arson. Mayor  Smith claims that he. has evidence to  prove that Mclntyre fired his own and  other houses during the big tire on Sunday to defraud the insurance companies.  The arrest of Mclntyre created a sensation, but news that Mclntyre and Fletcher,  the colored man, first suspected and arrested as the cause of the fire, had been  seen together on Fletcher's ranch just before the big fire broke out, created a bigger sensation. It is now believed that  Windsor was wilfully fired aud that Mclntyre and Fletcher worked together.  The Whitewater Dividend.  The largest dividend in the history of  the Whitewater mine was declared last  week. The amount was $2-1,000, and makes  a total to date of $01,000. Besides this  last dividend, about $8000 was paid out in  settlement of accounts. The Whitewater  is shipping at the rate of 50 carloads per  month, and dividends may be expected  regularly.   Another Sloean Star Dividend.  The announcement was made this week  that the Slecan Star had declared a dividend in September of,$50,000. This brings  the dividends of the Slocan Star company  up to $ 100,000. The mine is shipping concentrates again over both the Nakusp ic  Slocan and the Kaslo ic Slocan roads' to  the Omaha smelter.  Got Things Mixed.  Many years ago, Gladstone, speaking of  Mr. Parnell, made use of the oft-quoted  phrase, "Marching through rapine to the  dismemberment of the empire." On the  same day there was a horse race, in which  The Vernon ic Nelson Telephone company will have its longdistance telephone  line from Nelson to Bossland completed  on Monday afternoon.

Lem Lung, a Chinaman living in a shack  on Vernon street, took .sufficient opium  early Thur-day morning to cause, death.  Dr. Arthur held an inquest and a verdict  was found to the effect that Lung came.to  his death through opium administered by  himself.  The dance given by the Nelson brass  band in the Fire hall Thursday evening  proved a very enjoyable affair. < Another  .rlfl.n.f'ii..:A*_.il.L.be given in the fire halL  ' Wednesday evening.  Richard   Plewman has been appointed  liquidator of  the O. K. Mining company  by justice  Walkem.    The security to be  given was fixed at $5,000.  A meeting of the creditors of the estate  of W. II. Graham will be held in the office  of Messrs. Bowes & Senkler. on Monday  morning at 11 o'clock. H. G. Neelands,  assignee, says that the estata will be able  to pay 100 cents on the dollar if a fair  price is secured for the stock.in trade.  The City Received $1,579.70.  Mayor Houston this week received a  check from the provincial government for  $1,570.70, being the city's proportion of  the real property tax paid into the provincial exchequer up to September 1st,  1807.    When   the city  was  incorporated  mayor Houston estimated that the revenue of the province under the real property tax would be $3,000, and that the  corporation"* proportion would amount  to $2,000. That this amount lias not been  realized is due to the fact that there are  considerable arrears of real property  taxes yet remaining unpaid. Of the total  amount received by the government a.s  real property taxes the Canadian Pacific  Railway company contributed more than  one half.
