 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSOK:  THURSDAY  PRICE FIVE  BIRD CREEK (MM TO THE  A   Mining   District   Offering  Great   Possibilities   Now  Being  Developed.  OTHER   MINING   MATTERS  OF   INTEREST  RECORDED  Anion*-; tho well known  mineral  H'l-LiojiH in tlie immediate  vicinity  t.l' Nelson   whicli  promise to  make  1 his camp the banner  free  milling  district   of   the   province   ia  Bird  . Creek.      ft   enters   tho   Kootenay  river     between    Forty-nine     .and  -. Hover creeks,  but is shorter than  cither, rising within 3J  miles  from  its  mouth.   Like the majority of  the sections which go  to  make up  tlie big free milling belt extending  for miles west of Nelson, Bird creek  owes what  development it  has  to  prospectors, but in the era of  general activity on which the country  is entering the choice locations are  bound  sooner  or  later  to  attract  the attention of capital, and iu the  opinion of locators this is the only  essential required  to  put. the  section on a producing basis.  Bird creek was originally worked  by the placer- miners  who washed  along Forty-nine, Hover   and  the  other   creeks   in   tiie    vicinity   a  ijuarter of a century ago.    As  late  as   1SS0   the   placer   claims   were  worked   over   by  Chinamen,  who  took  considerable   gold   from   the  <;reek.    In 185)0 a cloud-burst came  down the creek, the indications of  which remain today in' the shape of  " great boulders piled up in the chan-  . .nel.   The water tore oil' the banks  for many feet, revealing the forma-  . tion and uncovering several- ledges  of ore.    Charles  G. Harvey, now in  the Yukonj staked one of the ledges  under the name of the Golden  Egg  ���lor Ward Brothers now of. Nelson.  This lead was then, and is still, " regarded as among the best locations.  . on' the creek:   ft was"' staked^iater:  as the Monogram, ran out, was relocated and passed through .various  . hands until 1898, when .7. W. Baxter  staked it as the Ophir and went   to  work in earnest.   The ledge  is free  milling,  fourteen    feet   in   width,  -with ore scattered all across, carrying from a trace to $150 in gold.  The work on the claim consists of  - 10 feet of drifting on the vein, a  ten-foot crosscut and 30 feet of inclined shaft.    The average of the  property is difficult to estimate but  with   depth   it   will   at   least   be  medium    grade.       Adjoining   the  Ophir on the   west is the   Huby,  owned by Mickey Monahan.   It. has  the Ophir lead,   and   considerable  work has been done with .the re-  smlt that tho claim is showing up  well.    West   of   the   Ruby is the  Garnet owned by ,Tohn Reagan and  M. Monahan.   It is  located on the  -same-lead;���Still���further--west are  claims owned by J. W. Harkness  and Mike O'Brien, all on the Ophir  ledge.    East   of the Ophir is the  Turquoise owned by Frank Fletcher.  It is on  the same lead and has a  number of open cuts showing  the  extension.       Adjoining    the   Turquoise   is a claim owned by Tom  Powell on  which   development   is  confined to open cuts.  Another well known group is the  Primrose;''Emerald and Shandon at  the head of the creek. The Primrose is owned by Alex. Long who  has stripped the ledge for a considerable distance and made a ."30-  foot cut. He has three leads of gold  and copper ore, the widest being 30  inches, and the claim looks well.  The Emerald, which adjoins, is in  dispute. R. M. Macdonald and R.  R. Hedley of Nelson have an interest in the property which has a  four footJead of gold and copper.  The Shandon belongs to J. G. Roberts arid the Vanstone brothers of  Nelson. They have two twenty  foot tunnels on the claim and a  number of open cuts. The Shandon has a particularly good showing in-copper. .  J. Olson is working a promising  claim at the mouth of the creek.  He-has eight feet of ore said to average if 8 in gold, and will continue  working all winter.' Between this  and the Ophir is the Mayflower,  owned by J.-W. Harkness. He has  done several season's work on the  claim and has eight to ten feet of  ore which runs $0 or $7 iu gold on  the surface.  Up on the divide at the head of  the creek is a galena property, the  only one in the district. It is owned  by    Robert    McCormick,    Frank  Fletcher and R. C. Campbell-Johnson. After the property was staked  several years were spent in looking  for the lead, which was finally located . last; spring. The ledge is  eight to ten feet wide with3 ore all  through and the property promises  to become a profitable concentrating proposition.  The last location on Bird creek  was staked on Tuesday by Tom  Cunningham for D.Stevenson. It  is the Darien, between the Mayflower and the river, and has a  two-foot lead on the surface.  fire and the fusing of, materials, J  which running together form a  mass of all sorts of stuff. For instance, what was supposed to be  parts of bodies taken-from the  ruins last night turned out to be on  examination at the morgue, blackened piles of melted gum aiabic.  Again today another mass was found  which the workmen first thought to  be human flesh, but is now thought  to be melted rubber.   ,  P  Capitalized at a Million.  The transfer of. the Royston  group of Claims on Morning mountain by the owners, J. L. Stamford  and others,'has been completed and  local parties have incorporated a  joint stock company with a capital  stock of $1,000,000, nori-assessable,  to operate the property. The Royston includes the Skene Dow, Nellie,  Royston, Barrie and Royston Fraction claims and the group adjoins  the Venus property, Smelter ereek  inteisects the claims, furnishing a  fair supply of water for milling  purposes. The work on the group  to date consists of 25 feet of tunnelling on the lead, stripping for 200  feet and other surface work. The  vein is about three feet wide in free  milling ore, that iu sight in the tun ���  nel averaging $8 to $10.. The new  company is known as the Royston  Gold Mimes, Limited, aud a small  crew of men is already at work on  the claims.  " !      a  The excessively bad weather of  the last two weeks has delayed the  completion -of the Molly Gibson  tramway. It is expected- that the  tram will be in operation by  November 15th. Four feet of snow  lias fallen, at the mine, however,  and a quantity of ore will be raw-  hided down at once. Regular shipments will not be commenced- until  the tram is ready,  MINING   STOCK  QUOTATIONS.  Bryan's Views."  RIKCETOS", New Jersey, October  31.���Frank .L.Hall, president of the  University Republican Club, has received   a   letter   from   William J.  Bryan, dated from New York, October 29th, in which he answers the  two questions sent him by the Republican Club  when he addressed  the'students at: Princeton Junction  last Thursday.     After, expressing  his   appreciation   of the courtesy  shown him by the Republicans at  that' meeting   he   answered    the  questions. '    First���-Will    you . if  elected redeem the coin obligations  of the government in gold or silver?  To this he  replied that he would  enforce: the law as   he found it;  that the Republican party has the  executive, house and senate, and as  there is no way of determining the  complexion- of the next congress,  he had no" Avay of knowing what  law regarding this matter would bev  in effect.    Ho stated-that his views,  on  the money   question could be  found in his letters.     Second���Do  you approve of the' disfranchisement of the negroes in North Carolina   by   the" democrats .of   that  state?    Mr. Bryan stated that this  questiou was not au  issue in the  campaign and  said :     You  should  hold the .president  responsible for  wliat he has done in Porto Rico and  not me responsible for what has  been done in North Carolina.     He  adds that there is but little, if any,  difference between the race ques?  tion  law in   North   Carolina and  that in Porto Rico.  :'-?-::J-.!��;fel  ���"'- el  ��� :&  CENTSi  PBOVINCE   OF  i-*  Constituency.

New York, October 31.���A re-  vision.made tonight of those persons missing and thought to.have  perished in the explosion and fire  at Tarrant & Co.'s drug store, shows  twenty-six unaccounted for.

Not a single body  had up to 10 o'clock tonight been  found in the ruins, though what  looked like parts of: bodies have  been dug out. It begins to look as  if what remains were in the mass of  debris still cumbering the place will  be totally unrecognizable as of  human composition, even should  the workmen find them. This is  because of the tremendous heat  evolved by the explosion and the)  Botha Marching On.

To Control Swiss Roads.  Berlin, October 31.���Dr. von  Siemens, president of the Deutsch  banks in Paris, is completing negotiations for financing the Swiss  railroads.  fame is no good and  I believe  season will see it the  flattest  strict in the north," is the testimony of William M. Dooly, a member   of   the   typographical   union,  who has just preached Nelson from  Alaska, after spending the summer  at Nome and at the beach diggings.  "The excitement was in my opinion  simply a scheme on the part of the  transportation companies," he continues, "and with few exceptions  they are the onl}r one's  who have  made money out of the  rush.     On  a couple of creeks tho ground was  phenomenally rich, but the ground  is all staked by the Swedish Exploration Company which went in  last year*.  The beach diggings were  practically worked out by the 4000  Klondikers who came in from Dawson before navigation opened, and  when-the 20,000 people, who made  up this year's rush arrived there  was little left for them.   On the  beach the values are found in the  ruby or garnet sand which occurs  in strata.    This ruby sand is rich,  a   small   handful' giving    say   00  colors.       The      dust      is       like  flour, however,   and   it   takes   700  colors to make a cent, ��� so   you   can  imagine how difficult it is to   save.  1 got in with   the   first. rush   this  year and the yery large majority of  us went north to make money,   arriving at Nome with little   outside  of our kits.   At that time the camp  was   good.     The   newcomers   had'-  some money,. the   Klondikers   who  had arrived several months before,  all had their pockets...full,.of.^durst,  and things' were lively until   about,'  July 4, by which time everyone was  broke and the camp   went   flat.    I  worked for a   time   on   the   News  when it changed from a weekly,  to  a daily.   Wages were a   dollar, an  hour at the start   but   they   soon  dropped and there are lots of printers there now glad to work for $100  a month.   The daily issue sold   for  two bits or   $35   a   year   and   the  weekly at $25 a year.   Advertising  rates were $30 an inch for ordinary  space and $25 for professional cards.  A number of doctors   and lawyers  advertised and they   did considerable business, but   when   everyone  went     broke     all     the      professional   men   got    for    their    services     were     promises   to     pay,  whicli were never realized.  .1 know  of one physician, a skilled surgeon,  who had a large practice, but who  Jiad_to^soak'Jii^inAtium_en_ts_to_ge_t_  out   of   the   country   because   his  patients had no money to   settle  with   him.      There   were   several  cases of lawyers having to put up  their law books to get south.    Merchants and others were in much the  same fix.   When the season opened  bread sold for two bits a loaf, now  it is three loaves for a quarter, and  other provisions have been reduced  on   a   similar   scale.     The saloon  keepers went up against it hard.    I  know of a dozen places which  cost  $7000 to $10,000 to build and equip  where they have not done enough  business   to   light    the   buildings.  Gambling was only carried ou actively   in a couple of saloons.    In  most of the places at Nome there is  no gambling because people have  not the money to play.     The .city  was full of tin horns and they had  and are having a tough time. When  gambling failed the sports were reduced    to'   all    kinds    of    petty  thieving    to    keep    alive.       One  of the schemes evolved by 'a tinhorn  down   on   his   luck   was   that, of  watching a tent until he knew  the  occupant was asleep, cutting a   slit  in the canvas through which along  stick bearing a   sponge   saturated  with chloroform was  inserted   and  dangled   over   the   sleeper's   face.  When the dope took effect the owner's clothing and   tent   were   ransacked.    This was done in scores of  instances.   There was lots of   sickness and much   poverty.   Most   of  those who went in managed to   get  out finally, and I doubt if more than  1000 people will spend   the   winter  in Alaska.   Those who   do   winter  north are men who have   their   all  invested, or are   Avaiting   to   jump  good claims or who have positions,  v ���sr'A  *>it  with the big, companies   operating  on the Bonanza creek.    Outside   of  these classes the only'ones left   arei>"*?-"s  blamed fools who don't know .anyC,">->  better.   When the merchants ;pull,  out of Nome next-year, you 'will see  the country -go "flatter   than' any  other boom district ever went.  "Some people have made enormous investments in Nome which  they will never realize on. Among  these is the Wild Goose .railroad  from Nome to Anvil creek, one of��  the bonanza lays. It is live miles  long and the roadbed is planks laid  side by side on the tundra, rails be-*  ing spiked to planks. The tundra  is more like a.marsh than anything, J0B  else, aud the trip over the road".- ^1  which"heaves up and down is -like *:  an ocean voyage.

'~'~ ; ,J  "The tundra has been prospected,'-  thoroughly and found to be barren}-"  of gold. l I tried the beach diggings' ;  for a month and had. the same,experience as thousands of others���,  that the good lays had been worked - �����$'<  out and what remained was too unr '. ~��|l  certain to be worth working. ��� *ThV';*^|i  best day I had was, $15 and -on^v^?'  some days I got nothing or'perhaps-t-x^\  a dollar'or two. I know of a  number of instances wliere prospectors would get a good "piece of _  beach, in one case $100 a. day J\yas  washed for 'a* month, but* all- they  made was spent in getting another  piece of profitable ground,.so .that  -in-.'the^ end.' they were' nothing  aheacl'.-'^At Tdpkn��roveir $20,000  was taken off the"beach biit this is  the only, place "where the beach  paid. All I 'eau-,say'about\ Nome is  .that it is no good, for a prospector,  and I dont see how anyone'familiar  with the exact conditions can give  any other report of the country."

It  , extolled the members of the public  works committee for recommending  that certain   street  lighting   con-  . tracts be entered into between the  city and the tramway company.  Tho   committee   could   not  stand  I praise coming.from such a source,  and concluded that the interests of  the city would be best served by  not doing what the Miner praised  them for doing.  Tub City of Nelson should be able  to buy power from the Bonnington  '. Palls Power Company, through   its  Nelson agents (the'.tramway   company) as cheap as it is supplied   to  , private parties.   Power is supplied  ,  P. Burns. &. Co. at the rate of $3 per  1  horsepower.   The city   asked  for  '  power to run fifty   arc   lamps   for  street lighting���the power required  amounting^." to    37A-    horse-power.,  For supplying 37 h horse-power $400  a month-was asked, or   $10.05   per-  horse-power   per   month.     Mayor-  Houston believed the price was an  unfair one, and  said   so.    For taking this stand, he-is   denounced   as  an enemy of the tramway company.  The average citizen will   say   that  the mayor is not paid for looking,  after any other interests than those  of the city, and that in   trying   to  obtain power at $5 per horse-power  lie was not   acting   unfair   to   the--'  tramway company and was looking  The Triiiunt. has placed n part of one column  at. the disposal of tlio Independent Laborers,  whose views will Ijo' expressd therein from  time to time during tlie campaign. A like privilege is accorded ihc Conservatives and the  ��� liberals.   Tlie statement in Tuesday's Tribune respecting tho formation of a  co-operative store in'Rossland was  evidently intended as a menace to  the merchants of Nelson by implying that there was .a possibility of  one being formed in this city. The  writer, if a Nelson man, must have  been guilty of gross exaggeration,  for the labor organizations of the  district are hearty supporters of  the merchants and are perfectly  willing to pay higher rates as long  of the scale of wages enables them  to do so. This is the only co-operation they- wish to exist.  The great point of consideration  withthe workers now is, "Why do  the two paities wish to monopolize  all the legislative influence and  howl down any- attempt of the  working classesto secure the small  representation- in the house to  which they consider they are justly  entitled ?  How'many labor representatives  are there-nowin parliament.   They  can be counted on' the- lingers and  the   ministers   can    always count,  upon- their vote- to   support any  measures- that are- introduced for.  the benefit*of' the��� country.     Their  sphere .of usefulness is not to oppose;  beneficial measures or to antagonize,  the   actions   of either party, but  simply to act as watch dogs to safeguard tlie interests of the masses  who would otherwise be-reduced to  a state of- reform.  We are- now being treated by-  both sides with categorical declarations of the wonderful efforts that  have been madeby each party for  our benefit and are asked to believe  that Codlin not Short is our friend.  The workers, especially in this  district, are men of intelligence and  aro sufficiently- educated- to think  for themselves and-not to be led to  -the polls like.a /lock of sheep. They-  !know that the slight representation  they are able to secure could not  possibly affect the balance of power  in the house and- are fully determined whether their leanings be  Conservative or Liberal to elect  their own labor candidate.  The thinking men among them  are wondering what inducements  the opposition leaders are; holding  out to the capitalists and manufacturers against the welfare of the  masses  votes.  :;:;;feSkmner  Neelanaa' BoilcUiief, Baker Street).

PLATFORM  Adopted by the Liberal-Conservative Party in Convention  at Revelstoke, September 15th, 1900.  "We, the delegates of the Liberal-Conservative party of Yale-Cariboo  constituency, in convention assembled, reaffirm the principles of the  party, ami more particularly that cardinal principle, .protection to home  industries, and that that principle be carried out so that all sections of.  the country shall, equally share its benefits.  The one industry on which the prosperity of. this constituency is  almost wholly dependent is mining; and we believe that our miniug industries are as fairly entitled to protection as the manufacturing indus--  tries of Eastern Canada ; therefore, Ave advocate, that.the duties on lead:  and-l��id-products=benncreasedfSo=that4hey-shalUbeas=hightaSitlipse.now~  imposed by the United States on the same articles. .      ���  That the output of the precious metal mines is largely increasing,  therefore we favor the establishment of a mint, so that the specie-in circulation shall: bethat.ot our own instead of that of a foreign country.  -  We advocate'the restriction of the immigration of Chinese and Japanese, and all classes who cannot become good citizens of the Dominion  of Canada, and suggest'the adoption of the principles of the Natal Act.  British Columbia: has not now the representation in the federal parliament that she is entitled- to: therefore we advocate that when the  redistribution of seats is made that, this constituency shall be given representation according toits population.  . That it augurs well for the success of the party-that Hugh..John  Macdonald. has decided to leave the field of. provincial politics to take  part in the larger one that affects the people of -the; whole of Canada.

The following special dispatch to  tli�� San Francisco Chronicle indi-  cmlos the opinion of railroad people  a--  to the selection  made for the  presidency of the .Southern Pacific:  Cli:,rle.s M. Hays, heietoi'oro  gen-  ���;rril manager of the  Grand  Trunk  Railway, has been selected   for the  position of president of the Southern Pacific Company by the committee, consisting of James Speyer,  Charles II. Tweed and  D. O. Mills,  which for some weeks past has been  considering various names for  the  place.   Tlio appointment of Hays  ,  will be acted upon by the board of  directors at tho meeting next week.  This selection  is  looked upon by  railroad men  generally as a good  one, for Hays has been  remarkably  successful in modernizing the Grand  Trunk and in  effecting  economies  1 hat havo borne fruit  in the dividends   paid   to   shareholders.     In  bringing to a head tho question   of  who  should   be   president   of the  Southern  Pacific   the  interests  of  the   Huntington   estate,  which  is  ..represented, by C. IT. Tweed, one of  t.lie executors, were thrown in with  -those  of'the bankers,   headed  by  Speyer & Co.   Themembers of the  Huntington family and  their  fol-  . lowing among the shareholders wei e  inclined   to   favor' placing   II.   P..  Huntington at the head of the company.- Against these interests were  arrayed the bankers, who have ���.determined  that  dividends-shall  be  paid tothe stockholders instead of  nil of  the  income"of- the^property  ' being used  for improvements and  _ betg&rruents,. as J'oi;merlyJ was,,the  policy of the company.    There  litis  undoubtedly   been    some   friction  over the matter.  A~' knowledge of the divide nd  policy and of the character of the  new president whom the bankers  have selected caused many insiders  recently to purchase Southern Pacific stock. Within a few (lays the  stock has advanced from 31 to  ���*>7 7-8, the latter being the highest  price today. The payment of dividends will boom the stock, but the  new policy may put an end to  many contemplated improvements  on the Southern Pacifloteystem.  The ��� announcement that Hays  had been chosen president caused  considerable surprise in financial  circles. Among the-many guesses  that have been made' the name of  Hayes was not mentioned and the  first intimation that he might be  the man came from abroad.

The fact that the new president  will be compelled to live on the Pacific coast shows that the position  of president of the Southern Pacific  will no longer be what it wasurider  the Huntingtou regime. Huntington dominated, and 'Huntington's  word was law. The duty of the  new president will be to carry out  the policy mapped out by the di-  'rectors, who will govern from New  York, and who will make known  *bheir wishes to California through  the president of tho road. Huntington was a ruler; Hays will be a  confidential employe, who will receive $|0,000 a;year.  When asked, whether Hays represented any particular interests  Tweed replied: "No, Mr. Hays represents all interests." Mr. Tweed  said that tho position had not been  offered to any one but Mr. Hays,  and, although Mr. Hays had been  the unanimous choice of the directors, formal action on the selection  will not be taken till the meeting  of the board next week. Mr.  Tweed added that the officers of  the Southern Pacific would probably retain their, present, positions.  Tweed will direct the financial interests of the Southern Pacific.  Hays will take charge of the road'  on January 1st,. 1901. .According  to cable advices from London, he  has already resigned from the  Gland Trunk.  Reports of the transfer of control of the Southern Pacific and Pacific-Mail to the Vanderbilt- interests have caused great interest in  railroad and. financial circles here.  The:directors-of-the- Southern Pacific deny unequivocally the Vanderbilt story.  The Journal declares that a deal  As wills are continually being  proved containing strange and curious bequests, it may be interesting  to place on record some of these  last wishes of testators.  In January, 1889, last, one of the  most notorious topers in France  passed away, and his will contained'  a clause stipulating that his funeral  procession was to bo delayed before his favorite public house in the  town of Mont-Bizot. There glasses  full of brandy and water were to  be placed on the coffin for all the  invited persons to tho funeral. The  interment was carried out in every,  detail, as desired, the visitors  thoroughly appreciating the  treat,  Mr. T. \V. Hill'(a son of the former M. P. for Worcester) left a  curious bequest. During his life he  had been much attached to his  horse Peacock and his pony. John.  -When making his' testament he  was- much concerned as to their  fate, so he thought he would state  his views asto their future.- Consequently he left instructions that  both animals should be put to death,  in tlie most merciful manner, by a  veterinary surgeon skilled in his  profession.  Legacies surrounded with peculiar circumstances are often met  with. In November, 1898, much  comment was made on the fact that  ,a Miss Lewis of Wolverampton,  had been left under the will.of a  great-uncle, a fortune of sCnO.OOO.  Before, however, she could become  rich "beyond tlie dreams of avarice,"  tho testator directed that she  should become the wife of a certain  young man whom ho mentioned.  Unless this marriage was carried  out within.twelve months after her  twenty-first birthday the money  was to.be paid to others. At the  time of her benefactor's death she  was-twenty years of ago and said  to be engaged to another suitor. It  was, however, stated that she most  likely would; carry out the conditions of TtlTe^beqireStT ~.   ' ��� ��� ~  An Austrian officer snugly walled  in his testamentary- present. He  left the bulk of his property to ; a  nephew, on the stipulation that he  never read a newspaper. Three  executors were to receive large  sums to see that his wish was fulfilled, failing which the nephew  would not get a penny. It adds  considerably to the irony of the  situation by the fact, that the young  man was employed in the post office,  his special duties being connected  with the dispateh, of-. periodicals.  The late earl of Winchilsea made  some curious provisions in his will.-  1 le bequeathed ��K per annum to  the Guild of Ringers, Ewerby, on  the condition that the vicar certified that the bells have been rung  regularly, for service during the preceding twelve months. He also left  ��1 a year for a sermon to be  preached on St. Andrew's day at  Ewerby to commemorate the restoration of the parish church and  the village market - cross. The  earl concluded his gifts with the  exclamation, "God save agriculture."  STERLING   NOVELTIES,   Manicure  Sets, Bisque Toilet Sets.  LAMPS, Piano and Table, in Metal  Enameled.

DOVER, The -Jeweler  TsTELSOISr,   IB.   o.  visited Vermont with his--wife's  people, and had. picked-out thirteen  acres of rolling country, whicli reminded him somewhat of the hill  country, in India. So he made a  house���a long, shingled structure,  with a wide verandah at one end���  as nearly like an Indian bungalo as  the American climate would permit, aud gave it au Indian name���  "Naulahka." This.house Kipling  has left-,]ost as ho lived iu it.  From this one may assume that  he did not expect to leave it for  good when he went away. Many  pictures are on the walls, and even  his children's toys are strewn about  the nursery floor. In this house, in  the big study, looking down the  rocky Vermont pasture..hill,Kipling  did considerably of his-later work.  While he was living here his "Captains Courageous" and "The Day's  Work", were published.

The case opened yesterday morning  when court resumed. - D. AV. Henley of Spokane, the plaintiff, was  represented by L." P. Duff of Victoria and R. S. Lennie, while defendant company was represented  by W. A. Macdonald and N. E.  ���Nuyum of Spokane. J. Morgan  Harris, president of the company,  was in attendance. The morning  session of court was devoted to the  examination of plaintiff Henley,  who is a Spokane attorney. His  story was that he came into possession of the Reco stock given by  Harris to. Houck and Arthur  through advancing money to the  latter, and.tliat.he was entirely unaware of the facts which placed  Arthur in possession of the certificates. Witness was subjected to a  lengthy cross -examination, but his  evidence was not impaired.  When court opened Mr. Macdonald appliel for leave to amend his  defence by adding a clause to the  effect that the shares were not  valid because they lacked the war  stamps demanded under the state  of Washington and also putting in  certain by-laws of the . defendant  company. The application was refused because these matters were  not included in the original defence  and would not, even if set up, determine the real question in controversy. ���������:'.-���������-������'������   ���.;<'-://>:'':���;'-���..:  After the noon adjournment the  litigants came together with .their  counsels and -agreed on a settlement.
