 FIGHTING IN THE COURTS FOR THE  DUNCAN   RIVER   PASS.  Special to The Tribune.  Kaslo, May 8.���Tlie railroad  building  in  the Lardo has already commenced to  cause  complications,   and  the  Kaslo   &  Slocan people seem to have the best of it.  The C.P.R. engineers surveyed their line,  as described before, entirely on the west  side of the Lardo river, while the K. & S.  surveyed on the east side.    But when the  C.P.R gang started to clear their right-of-  way they came to a  very big  rock bluff,  directly  in   tlieir  route, which meant a  heavy   expenditure either  in making  a  tunnel or   building several miles  around  it.    It was then decided to bridge across  the river and run along the east bank for  a   few miles,  and then   bridge the   river  again back to their own side, and so save  expenditure and   time.    These few  miles  happened   however to  be part of  the K.  &. S. route.    Hence the departure a few  days ago of John Hamilton Gray, chief  engineer, and Mr. Carlson, with a gangof  men, whom they at once put to  work to  grade this little piece  of  road, and   take  out the C.P.R. stakes.    The C.P.R. people  again put their stakes ou top of the K. &  S."grade, but the K. & S. gang kept going  right ahead with their work.    It is likely  that the outcome  will  be that  the K. &  S. will  build their short  piece  and give  the  C.P.R.   running  powers  over  it   on  condition   that   the   C.P.R.   give   them  running powers  over tho balance of the  line, wliich would save the K. & S. building four or five miles of road into Duncan  City.  Owing to the scarcity of" laborers at  present, the C.P.R. contractors tried to  hire Carlson's gang in the Lardo, but  Carlson reciprocated by engaging several  of the C.P.R. gang., Tlie K. & S. have  forty men at work now, and just as soon  as active construction commences they  will .put as many men to work as their  opponents have. This means that there  will be over two thousand men working  in that district this year.  The Canadian Pacific Restrained.  The trouble between the rival railway  companies cropped up in judge Form's  chambers yesterday morning, when the  Kaslo and Lardo-Duncan Railway Company ''made an application for an injunction restraining the Canadian Pacific  company froin trespassing upon their  right-of-way through Duncan City pass.  From the papers filed in support of the  application it would appear that the  Canadian Pacific company, Avhen it lias  any railway work in hand, considers itself ..iiboye^incQUA'enient!.^  #��  'c&Z  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, B.^1"  TUESDAY MORNING,  MAY 9,  189!  .1 COLUMBIA.

Judge Korin granted an interim injunction restraining the Canadian Pacilic Kail-  way Company till May 30th' from  trespassing upon the plaintiff company's  right-of-way in the pass. The order is  subject, however, to be dissolved at any  time if the Canadian Pacilic company can  show that the statements contained in  the affidavits filed on behalf of the Kaslo  and Lardo-Duncan are incorrect. It may  be also varied or extended, but until it is  disposed of in some manner the Canadian  Pacific company will be unable to proceed  with the construction of its Kootenay  and Trout Lake branch as contemplated.

Moore, avIio arrived from Duncan  City last night,  says  that  the Kaslo <fc  Slocan   and  Canadian  Pacific  workmen  were all mixed up at work in the Duncan  -.pass when lie left.    He  reports  the pass  about fifty feet wide  and  the  Kaslo  <fc  Slocan grade zigzags through it, so that  there is no room  left  for  the  Canadian  Pacific's grade. The gradingoutfitsreaclied  Duncan   City  the  same night,  but  the  Kaslo   <fc  Slocan  crowd   quietly slipped  away at three o'clock  in  the  morning,  leaving the Canadian Pacific men dreaming of the soft snap they had before them  in the morning of bucking a* narrow-gauge  outfit like  that led   by John  Hamilton  Gray.     Duncan  City is  described  as  a  nicely situated townsite, and will be the  headquarters for both parties.    The snow  is reported two to three feet deep in ,the  2>ass.     At present all freight for Duncan  City  is  lauded  at Argeuta,  and either  boated up the river  to  Duncan  City  or  packed over the trail.     By trail the rate  of freight is 2-i cents  a pound; by boat  the rate is li cents.     When tlie water is  high enough for the  small  steamers  to  run up the river,  the  rate  will  be  considerably lower.  The City's Financial Statement.

It i-ecited that  while the plaintiff company Was at work  oil tlie 4th instant v/ith about twenty  men, in what is coliimonly known as the  Duncan City pass, a force of about eighteen men   employed   by   tlie   Canadian  paiiific Company came Ppon the right-of-  way of the Kaslo and Lai'do-Duiican and  refusOd to lesaye when ordered  to  do so.  Tlie line of tlio Kaslo aiid Lardo-Duncan  railway, lieiir station (58(5, enters a narrow  gorge, known as the Duncan  City pass,  ���wliich- is  not more than froni thirty  to  fifty feet wide, and continues for about  1S,00(J feet, the sides rising iDrecipitously.  The   chief engineer  of   the   Kaslo  and  Lardo-Duncan railway had been through  the pass a number of times, but until his  recent visit he had not seen stakes there  other than those of the  plaintiff's  rail-  *way.    He was informed by Christy Mack,  ���assistant engineer ou  said  work  of the  plaintiff,   that a party  of engineers  in  the employ of tlie Canadian  Pacific had  left Duncan City about May 1st, and proceeded to said Duncau  City pass, and  from the appearance of the stakes of the  defendant's uoav in the ground, and the  felling of trees necessary to the survey of  a railway line, he believed that the survey by the defendant in the said pass  had been quite  recently made.    He followed the liue  of the  intended location  by the defendant company for about GOO  feet beyond the lowest end of the pass,  and found that there were  no  stakes  of  the defendant's beyond that  point,  and  tlie clearing of the trees necessary for the  work of survey there ceased entirely.

Bicycle riders are requested to give  pedestrians right-of-way and pass all  vehicles on their left hand side by turning out to the right.  Alderman Beer also moved that the  council place on record its readiness to  assist in the building of a bicycle track  by" contributing $300 conditional upon  the bicycle riders contributing $150, the  offer to remain open for two weeks.  This was seconded by alderman  Kirkpatrick and carried. A meeting of tliose interested in the making of the track will be arranged  Avhen a site for the same may be agreed  upon.

The site is, a niaguificent one for a city,  gently sjojiiug up.frqm the lake and containing  area enough to build a modern  ��� NeAV York.    When it is needed and the.  situation wamuits-it, everything pertain-,  ing  to  good  sanitation  can  readily  be  executed.    Hundreds  of men���I  do not  think the population is less than  2500,  probably 3000���are simply waiting the  going of the snow to get but amongst the  creeks.    It is.quite , a sight to see them  ploughing around amongst the mud, for  the streets are: perfectly devoid of 'Sndxv'i  with y.ery serious faces, wond.ei'ingwliat  three mouths will unfold, for it is not by  any means certain that there is the.niak-*  ing of a great mining camp here, though:  some of the widest aiid.*' best informed  " have no hesitation in expressing the.utmost confidence in the future of the district.    ; Discovery,   distant Yfrom   Atliii  seven and a half hiilesyvis.quitea town,  and will do a ripping commercial business,  this summer.  ""New strikes are reported on  a couple  of tributaries, Moose and * McKee creeks.  One, man, whose name is not giyen, but  who is' vouched for by tliose who know,  came  in and  reported one and one-half  ounces  of gold to  the pan,  recorded his  claims,  and slipped away again, no one,  knowing where he  went, or Avho he was,  but the report, is bona ,fide.    Of course,-  it  cannot be kept a secret' long, and lie  cannot take up the whole creek.   -Americans who took out licenses and recorded  -their claims are daily renewing them; aud,  of courseare protected in Avhtit they do by  the Alien Act.

Mr. BroAvnlee has prepared  topographical plans of the townsite, a  large sepia dtawing of the town, together  with font' dOjjen photographs, which he  Ws forwarded to the government; so  thai tJiey are, in a position to give all required information in this respect. Ileal  estate is moving quietly, but firmly.  This, of course, is all iii squatters' rights..  All that lias been written.'re the gold  commissioner giving squatters no rights,  is false. They have the ssame right of  purchase as others, and, if anyone buys  oArer tlieir heads, lie' Will have to pay for  the improvements made ?by the squatter.  The men in business are all doing an excellent trade, seemingly. There is a  splendid opportunity here for a good  dentist, aiid a plumber and tinsmith,  there:being neither in,town.  Mad Millionaires.  "Mad Millionaires" would be an excellent title for a book dealing with, the'  eccentricities of very rich men. A paragraph appeared in the newspapers the  other day concerning a millionaire Avho  imagines tliat he. is:the prince of Wales.  This and other hallucinations, together  AA'ith certain oddities of conduct, have  rendered.it necessary to hold aii inquiry  into his state of mind, and the commissioner in lunacy decided that he was incapable of looking after himself and of  managing his affairs. It is difficult to  decide when eccentricity merges into  madness. Some-thirty years ago one of  the richest and most prominent men in  England always went round the recep-  ,ls qow prepared to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Skaguay, ll. S., Atliq, B. C, and  Dawson City, Yuk,on, District.  tion  rooms after an entertainment had  been  given in  his house, and  carefully  gathered the ends of candles so tliat they  might be preserved for use on a future  occasion.    Another very well known man  imagined  that he was a squirrel and refused to eat anything but'nuts.    A third,  Avhose income must have been well oyer  ififty --thousand  a  year, proAvled around  the clubs picking up the ends of cigars,  and these he smoked.    They Avere all of  .them, however,   very   shreAvd   business  men,  and  it  was  never suggested that  they   should   be   placed  under  control.  One who died a year or two ago, and  whose will was piwed at over tAvo millions,  denied    himself   many    comforts  Avhieh  he   could  well -"afford  to   enjoy.  One Avinter, the weather being  bitterly  cold, his children clubbed together to buy  him  a handsome  sable  coat, for which  they  paid  OA'er a hundred pounds.   In  order to persuade .him to accept it they  had to pretend  that it had  been bought  at a bargain; indeed,  they even declared  that the coat had cost; them only thirty  pounds.    The following day at dinner he  said:    "I did a splendid'bit of business  this morning.    I sold the coat for which  you  gave thirty pounds to a friend  of  mine for.forty!"  AN   ATTORNEY'S   LIEN   CASE.  It will be remembered by some of the  people pf Nelson, that a city solicitor  took $750 of the city's money deposited  in court for a specific purpose, and deposited it to his own credit ih the bank, saying nothing about the transaction to-Tiis-  official superiors, and when called -.oh, to  pay it back to the city fell back on his  attorney's lien right���and he holds possession of the money today. OA'er iu  Utah the courts hold that if even a party  to a suit commenced should settle Avithout the consent of his attorney, the other  party -will be held liable. The foIloAving  is a recent decision by the supreme court  of Utah:  An opinion- has been handed down by  the supreme court in the case of Josepli  F. Potter vs. the Ajax Mining Company,  appellant,'reversing the judgment of the  lower court, aiid remanding the case AA'ith  instructions to grant a neAV trial. The*  opinion was written by justice Miner and.  concurred in by chief justice Bartch, justice Baskin dissenting aiid holding that  tlie action should have been dismissed altogether.  Totter sued the company for damages  in the sum of $15,000, his attorneys to  get half of the sum recovered, but before  the case came to trial Potter settled for  $'1100 without the ^knowledge of his at-  "tQrii.ey^.

The contraetwas  entered into July 23rd, 1897, and the  statute not being retractive cannot apply, although the settfeiuent and dismissal Avas collusive, fraudulent and prejudicial to the rights of the attorneys for  the plaintiff.  The reversal Avas granted on the theory  that the judge erred in instructing the  jury that the attorneyys' lien statute applied, but the opinion intimated that the  attorneys have a common law remedy.  Justice Baskin in disenting held that  such a contract betAveen client and attorneys avus against public* policy, and Avhile  not approving the action of plaintiff and  defendant in the settlement, held that  the action should be dismissed.

Kesirn.��, who is a miner,  was going up to work on a claim on  Quart/, creek, with a pack on his back,  when the pack overbalanced him and he  fell, badly fracturing his left arm near  the shoulder. P.yr slipped on the street  at Ymir and split his knee cap.  There was no quorum for the regular  meet'tig of the South Kootenay Board of  Trade, the only members present being  F. W. Swannell, W. A. Jowett, A. .1.  .Marks, .James IJannerman. il. M. Vincent,  A. Ferland, A. II. Kelly, .1. F. Weir and  I'. Chapman. The secretary explained  that he understood that there wore some  very important matters to be taken up at  tho meeting and had sent notices to  every member on Saturday, and ascribed  the lack of a quorum to the numerous attractions in Nelson on this particular  night. After waiting until nine o'clock  tliose present dispersed.  The fancy di\~ss ball held at the  residence of Mi*, and Mrs.' Brougham  last night by the members of the Nelson  Musical Society and their friends was  largely attended. During the evening  Mi*. Brougham avjis presented with a  handsome baton mounted in ivory and  ebony with a silver band engraved "W.  F. Brougham, 1S99," in recognition of his  untiring efforts to advance the interests  of the society.  The sporting editor of the Hosslaud  Miner insinuates that the members of the  Rossland football team were not hospitably treated at Nelson. Well, it took  some of the boys until four o'clock Sunday morning to find it out.  Word was received in Nelson on Sunday of the death at the insane asylum at  New Westminster of William Hodson.  For 'several weeks past the patient was  declining both mentally and physically,  ending in his death on Sunday. The  body will be returned to Nelsoii and  buried by Kootenay Lodge No. .10,  1. O. O.

The funeral of .John Villevvaux, a  native of St. Francis, Quebec, who died  on Saturday evening in the Brooklyn  hospital, took place yesterday afternoon  from-the undertaking establishment of  D.
