Palmer, that so far :is jurisdiction veiji the f'.f'.li. official was nut a ieacc officer technically, hi thai he was created sucli wiih Jurisdiction only in province of Manitoba, and he same did not extend vithoutMhai province. Ills honor upheld Iho argu- ment of counsel, with the result that he crown asked for a reserved case, bringing the matter before tbe judges ot the supreme court. Opinion Overruled To determine question raised, usilcoa Harvey. .Simmons, McCarthy and Rluaii tat. Following their de- .iberations, ihe opinion of Judge Jack; ion was overruled hand ed doxvn by Me. Justice- Stuart, with tho remainder of the beach concurring. This Judgment, after cipressiiiK a doubt, decided tuat ihe peace olficer in question was a peace officer at the time be was exercising' his authoriti In Alberta. The Doubt 'In referring to the doubt, >lr. .Jus- tice Stuart saul thai be did not think that Ihe words "Or other local julrstllc lion within which bo was appointed" as used in the section of the RailirRy Act arc of themselves wide enough to cover another proviocc because in another section, -where they are .re- peated, it is obvious that ibey cannot cover a province for the reason (bat here is not, as believed, such a person aa a clerk of Ibe peace for the province. Taking this doubt into considers- ,lon, his lordship held there arc other iirurlfions wLirti suggested strongly to' hiS mind UiaL LLe Intention of parlia- ment was simply to give the railway constables power to act anywhere in the province in which they were ap- pointed. Further, it seemed unllkcly to his lordship that parliament intend- ed to force a person who under Set' lion 305 might want to Inquire Into tlie validity of the appointment pi any particular constable acting in tho neighborhood to go lo :lie other cml of the Dominion to discover ihcj facts which he desired lo learn. On the whole, he saw no good ground to cut down the very pTnin meaning of the scction'ivhlch enacts In substance thai a constable once legally appointed 1111 tier the act may act on such railway and on any of the works belonging all places not more than n quarter of a mile distant from such railway. Statue of Dominion Police Obviously, continued tho learned udge, iho Intention was to create a sort, of Dominion police. They arc to 30 appointed on tho nomination of -ho railway nulhorlties nnd, doubtless, must be .paid by them, but when np- polnled they are public constables JueL as much as In the CBSO of con- stables appointed and paid by munld- pamies. Th'ey arc officers of. the law and probably En no sense agents, of the railway company. -In such cir- cumstance there would seem lo be no reason why parliament may not have intended them to be a sort of Domin- ion pollre with authority throughout tho Dominion wherever tbe Dominion railway runs and In its Immediate neighborhood. Under Section 30l'Uicy arc lo protect not merely the railway property and the railway officials, but the public generally, and be, there- fore, thought Hie the constable In question, though appointed In Mani oba, bad power to act In To his judgment, Mr. .lustIce Stuart added thfit the other members' of the iourt did not ah aro Iho doubt. which 10 at first entertained.
