 ***    L iy~ ^ap^fl^^tSS^i  *b  DAILY EDITION   BY.MAIL;  FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BYflYUUL*  TWO D0LLAR8 A YEAR CT  NINTH YEAR  NELSON.  WEDNESDAY MORNING FEBRUARY 13 1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  THE CASE WAS WITHDRAWN  JUSTICE   IRVXNQ'S   DECISION   IN  THE MATTER.  Conductor Fawcett Did Not Comply  Strictly With the Eules- Other  Court News.  When the session of the supreme  court opened yesterday morning  Mr. justice Irving gave his decision  in Fawcett vs. 0. P. R., arid* declared that "the plaintiff had not  proved a sufficient case to guarantee a further advancement' of the  trial. In giving the judgment he  said:  At the conclusion of the plaintiff's case the defendants moved for^  a non-suit. ' I think I muse grant  it,%on the ground, not of contributory negligence, -which" is a question' for the jury.to determine, but  because the plaintiff has not made  out a cause of action.  As' stated by  cBrett TJ. R. in Wakelin vs. London  & SouthwesterriRailway Company,  J-.'R: (1890 j'10 B.-101:/'It is not a  cause of  action  according to" the  laws of England that the 'death of  the deceased person was caused by  the negligence of,the railway company in the sense that their negligence was a cause of his death.   In  an  action"'for" * personal _* injuries  through    negligence, -although   it  Tvas.shown  that*;there was negligence" ^whicli*' was a cause - of "the*  �� accident   and   without "-.which-a"' it  _i coiild 'riot.have .happened, yetf, -if  "' the plaintiff himself was also guilty  of negligence or want of reasonable  ' ea^whichYjcon'tribiited^to the, acci-  -> dent so' that the _accident - was the  result'of tlie joint negligence of the  ���  plaintiff and,the_defendants there  is no cause of action?<>' /;-"* "  - -;-, Thercause of action is,vthat as be-J  tween the plaintiff and' the defend-,  ant, the accident or injury, to the1  - plaintiff was-caused solely rby the*  .negligence jof the defendant. - That  - is to say, it "must be shown that the  ���negligence  of the .defendants was  ''"the sole cause,   y   .  . _  -_ Now^in ,this case the"plaintiff,  according to the rules of ~ the railway   company, jWas   required   to  *'-" carefully.' ��� examine -- couplings,  wheels and running, gear of^allcars  in their'train" (rule No. 88), and by  ���rule 93 "to see .that their ,cars are,  in good order" before the leaving  of the train. ..This to"* my mind  (compelled' him ' to examine the  wheels, shoes of the brakes, - brake  ���beams, etc., and, ultimately the  brake wheel itself in order to see  .that it was in good working' order,  i. e, with   safety   to    the   person  .using it. .The cause of the accident  - is not in dispute. It was that the  ���t���brake���wheel���was-vinsecurely��� attached to, the brake' mast.. There  ."may .have been negligence on the  ipart of the'eompariy, butr there was  ���negligence also on the part of conductor   Fawcett   who   was killed.'  He neglected to do that which was  -prescribed by, the company should  ibe done by him for-the security bf  -limself, of the . brakeman who  might have,to handle that brake,  and possibly of the passengers who  would be riding on the train. The  case is very -much like that of  Truman vs. Rudolph, 22 O. A. R.  250, where a master brewer sued his  employer under, "the Workmen's  Compensation for Injuries( Act for  damages for injuries resultiug from  falling from a defective ladder  which it was his-duty to inspect.  Jn that case the master brewer saw  -the defect and instructed a subordinate to repair it, but neglected to  see that the repairs were carried  out, and Mr. justice Osier in delivering the judgment on the point of  appeal, says at p. 254: "The defective condition _of the ladder was  owing, as this evidence shows, to  the' unfortunate plaintiff's .own  neglect, not in the sense of contributory negligence but neglect in  not seeing that the ladder was put  in a properly secure position. He  was the person whose duty it was  to see that this was done, and his  own neglect was what led to the  injury." A judgment on non-suit  was then approved.  For these reasons I withdraw the  case from the jury and direct judgment to be entered for the defendants with costs.       P. E. Irving.  Nelson, February 2nd, 1901.  At the conclusion of the giving of  the judgment, the case of McLeran  vs. Billings was opened and at the J  of the plaintiff, J. M. McLeran, had  been taken. The contest in this  case��arises out of a grub-staking  agreement which is alleged to have  been made. The'greater'portion oft  the, time was occupied in reading  the various letter whicli were written the parties concerned at that  time. ~ The case will be,resumed today and Awill' probably^last until  tomorrow;.

James Van, a prospector, came  before magistrate Crease at the  police court yesterday morning on  a charge of disorderly conduct, but  as the necessary evidence could not  be obtained the case was adjourned  until this morning. Van was arrested on Monday night. He was  in the Silver King hotel and there  got mixed up in a fight which resulted in his getting his face badly  cut up. As he walked out of the  building a report from a revolver  was heard .and when he was  searched a gun was found in his  pocket. It is thought that the gun  went off accidentally, as it*was discharged while in the" prisoner's  pocket. Vau had just returned  from a hunting trip and it is  thought that he did not intend to  do any damage with the weapon  that he carried.  IH. Bromley'Davis, who "left* Nelson on December'26, 1899, with the  second contingent-'of Canadian  Mounted Rifles 'and �� who has been'  in active service in South Africa  since that time, arrived in Nelson  by the Crow's, Nest boat last evening. During his service he was under the direct command of sir  Charles Parsons and also lord  Kitchener. -   -  He .was at the front all the time  and was in many hot engagements.  Mr. Davis is looking well but is still  suffering from a'-bad wound in the  right thigh, .which he received from  a shell* which exploded in the camp  early one jpmorning - last,- Jiine^at  -Lindley. The company**- *wa/ just  breaking camp, wlieri a 45 "pound  shell <was hurled into their midst" by  the "Boers, and tlie explosion - was  most disastrous; Three men were  killed^ ,and ^several^-wounded, ���*��� ,A  number of ..mules'-were falsb, killed  and a few wagons - utterly de ^  molished. Mr. Davis was at once  taken" to 5the trench, hospital"at  ' Krobnstadt^where he remained six  weeks, after1 which he again* joined  the column.    ,,"'       ' ,.   "-v;  ,' /Mr. Davis said that the greatest  hardships   he- endured  "actual fighting was the march across  "the^Karooj desertjVa- "distance of  'abbut-600 milesT .While they /were  rr6n this plain-they..wereiiriipursuit  ",6f  the'Yenemy.'and "diiririg- their  r'march>,they captured1; about 1*30 bf  "the#"-Boei,"i'_oldiersyand' a   large  amount of military supplies. After  Vunning the ���- enemy from- the sec  tion^jthe company, returned to 4b  ^hannesburg.Ywhere they^joined^the  main column of the Britishers. "The  hottest fight that Mr. Davis was in  .was af'Baberton, in Orange Free  State.   Here l;hey were under fire  for "eight hours.''   The British losses  were Jabout  100 -men."   This is.the  first generalerigagement wherepom-  pom  guns were used.    These' guns  ,got, in theirJ deadly work_ and the  Boer losses were exceedingly heavy.  In speaking-of ithe situation or  affairs in South Africa at the present" time he said that the war was  practically , ended,   but   it   would  probably     require     another     six  months   to bring the   Boers   into  submission. >- ,_  -    -_.  .

Prior to Mr. Davis' leaving he had  lived in Nelson seven years and was  engaged-in mining. Formerly he  served with the mounted police in  the Northwest at -Fort Pelly. He  brought with him two souvenirs of'  the Boer war. They are a 45 caliber Colt's revolver which went  through the entire campaign and a  silver mounted African cane, which  he took from the house occupied by  general Villebois-Mareuil, who was  one of the most noted French generals who took part in the war.

Specials to the Post-  Standard from outlying towns say  that worse conditions have never  been known. In some cases communication with other villages except by wire is cut off. In Cortland county drifts ten feet high are  reported in the main roads aud  travel is impossible. In the northern counties the same story is told.

Ottawa, February 12.���Some in-  terestingNcriminal statistics are included in the report of the minister  of agriculture for the year 1000.  During the period 1887-90, the average number of convictions for  offences of ail kinds in Canada was  87,250. In 1899 the total convictions  were 38,710.  * Of the 484,268 convictions, 00,081  were for indictable offences, the  charges numbering 88,52.3, so that  convictions formed 68.0 per cent of  the charges. This approximates  closely the ratio in the two countries from which the great bulk of  our population springs.  The proportion of the sexes in tlie  first three-year period, between  1887-99, was 91 , males and 9  females. In the last three-year  period it was 94 to 6. The proportion of women criminals in the  greater crimes is smaller, and may  be said to. become fixed at the  figure of 6 in the 100 criminals,  with a slight tendency to a reduction of the rate.     :  ^m  ��**����� |  '~"v-'"%s'*iJsl  ��� '&���' ^-*_��i  sy-i^^i  -.       ..."HI  - ^sv  ,i *5|  '41  ���&>__  The returns of  ive, inasmuch as  ger to the state  of juvenile crime,  the   convictions  1899 are instruct-  they show a dan-  from the increase  One-third of. all  for indictable of-  stopped the limited fast mail from (16 and 21 years.  fenses in Canada in 1899 was of  persons under 21 years of age, and  nearly one-half of this third were  convictions of ���-.* persons under 16  years of age.

If the application  for tiie Hill charter is refused, and.  the railway commission is ap-  pointed.there will be ample facilities  for regulating tlie Canadian Pacific  railway; but if the Hill: charter - ia  granted no necessity will exist for  such a commission . since Hill will  own the coal and the railway as  well.

There may be some difference of  opinion among the people' of Kootenay. as to whether the Canadian  Pacific Railway Company has at all  times had a single-eye to the development of its mineral resources, but  there is no difference of opinion as  to whether West Kootenay cannot  more safely trust its development  to a railway which stands to profit  by such development, rather -than  to' a' railway and smelter trust  which may be more interested in  ' arresting its development than in  promoting it.  In the present danger which confronts the mining and smelting industry of British Columbia, through  the machinations of the directors of  the Crow's Nest Coal Company and  James J. Hill, the talk about a railway commission may be regarded  as drawing a red herring across the  trail. Of what benefit will' a railway commission be after James J.

As a rule smelting ��� companies da  not pay a dollar -more per-ton for  fuel merely for the purpose of adding to a railway company's receipts.  The petition of the iron and steel  manufacturers of Ontario, which is  now before the Ross ��� government,-  requests that the full duties upon  nickel and copper-nickel- ores and  matte   be .collected,. and that.the  sums so :raised be applied to.the  encouragement of 'the manufacture  in Ontario'of nickel-iron and nickel-  steel.   The export duties referred to  call for the payment of $10 per ton  upon . nickel ore; and of $60 per ton  for nickel matte, and-of $7 per ton  for copper-nickel ore, and of $50 per  ton for matte, from the.-same ore.  For years   past.

"The shout,  " Loug live'the army," is" the' most  . serious one. -. Should < it -take a real  hold on-the people ,and ���- should the  fever reach the army itself the" outcome would be threatening.  The���current talk-gives; the army  as being dissatisfied, and ends with  announcing that it does not" intend  'to take up arms against the. people  so long as their oppositibn is directed   against   the   Jesuits   and   the  - count Caserta. -The feeling"against  - tho former is largely political, but  deep antagonism exists against the  former Carlist, leader.  The decision of^thea.high court  today vfavoring ,the contention of  the mother in the Ubao case.'giving  the daughter into-her- charge,- and  releasing her from the convent, is  , likely to have a soothing effect.

A rather1 novel thing happened  in connection with.the marriage of  Miss Minnie Lillie yesterday. "''A  turkey had been purchased for the  wedding dinner, which, when  dressed, was found to, contain a  note dated December 10th to the  effect that the turkey was raised on  a farm one mile and a half from  Westport, Ontario, and was one of  a flock of one hundred. The writer,  who signs herself Alma Palmer, expressed the hope that the turkey  would furnish a good Chiistmas  dinner for some one. Ther strange  thing was that Westport is only a  few miles from Perth, Ontario, Miss  Lillie's birthplace, and no doubt the  writer had often met the young  lady at whose wedding the turkey  was served for dinner.  -   D. 0." McKenzie's Funeral.  The.f uneral of the late D. C.-McKenzie, manager o�� the Arlington  mine near' Erie, who died at the  .Cottage hospital vearly - yesterday  morning,' has been set for 4 o'clock  this afternoon at" St."Paul's Presbyterian church, but < it is uncertain  whether it will be held at that hour  or not. The employees at the mine  are coming to Nelson to attend the  ceremonies, but at 1 o'clock this  morning tbe Spokane Falls & Northern train had not arrived," the delay, it is said, being due "to land--  slides"' which occurred south <of  -Northport.-^-The funeral-will not be  held until the staff''reaches Nelson.  If the obsequies'are held today the  deceased's remains will be shipped  to Cincinnati by the steamer International at 7 o'clock tomorrow and  will be interred in the Spring Grove  cemetery at that place. Those who  will act as pallbearers are* S. S.  Fowler, Bruce White,-George Kydd,  captain Duncan, G. O. Buchanan  and H. Byers. The deceased was a  member in good standing of the  Odd Fellows, and the local members  will attend the funeral in a body.  All the members are' requested to  meet at the hall at 3:30 this afternoon. , -  Free Gold Found at Kuskonook.
