Crews Coming  From  Victoria, Vancouver and Portland���Prospects of
Local Oarsmen.
The annual regatta of the N. P. A.
A. 0, will be held on the waters of
Nelson harbor on Friday nnd Saturday,
July 27lh audi 28th. The fixing of the
date has been announced to J. Teague,
secretary of Ihe Nelson Boat Club, by
O. H. Kent, of Vancouver, secretary of
the N. P. A. A. I... as tbe decision of
the executive committee.
The rowing clubs of Victoria, Vancouver and Portland will all be represented probablp each by senior and
junior crews. It is still undecided
whether Nelson will enter a senior
crew or not. There are none of the
present active members who are disqualified from rowing as juniors, and
it is not improbable tbat all the local
club's efforts will be concentrated on
an effort to win the junior champion
About five weeks remain for preparation by the local oarsmen, of which
lull advantage will be taken.
. i.e regatta means a great deal to
Nelson. It is probably the only city oi
the Interior with facilities for holding
such a water tournament. The visiting
crews will all be accompanied by
friends and the regatta days will be
busy ones.
The city will be Illuminated on the
evenings of the regatta ns during the
Dominion Day celebration, and the citizens generally will assist ihe local
club In entertaining their guests.
All arrangements for lhe tnces anil

of the executive committee of the N. P

Disturbances at Bialystok Are Not Yet
Bialystok, June 19.���Tha night pass-
ed quietly, and the town Is resuming
its normal appearance. Some street
cars are running, and several factories
have resumed work. Fully half the
patrols have been withdrawn from the
streets here und In the suburbs.
The bodies of more than a hundred
Jews were burled during the day, but
tbe Imposing array of military forces
prevented a resumption uf the disorders. The correspondent of the Associated Press this evening saw dozens
of Christians of the lower classes with
sacks on their backs coming from the
desolated Jewish quarter to an examination by the soldiers and police. If
lhe sacks contained plunder, none of It
was seized.
General Bador, commander of the
garrison and acting governor-general,
Is In personal charge of the troops,
which are so disposed that a renewal
of the rioting is considered improbable.
The Jews, however, continue In a state
of panic. As the correspondent passed
through the streets strewn with wreckage, they could be seen hastily barricading what was left of their homes.
Many of them adopted the artifice of

After several years of hard, steady
and profitable work, during which shipments have been maintained and development work kept well ahead, the
management of the Ottawa mine are
about to take a long step forward.
Tbe present deep level Is 500 feet
down. Good ore has been found In all
the tipper levels, and steady prospecting has satisfied the owners that they
are still comparatively working on the
surface. Arrangements are' now about
completed for sinking from the present lowest level.
R. J. McPhee, manager of the mine.
Is in the city. In response to a request
for news he said:
"Well, we are going to put In a plant
for sinking, a complete compressor
plant. The machinery is already arriving, and it will be installed as fast
as possible. We are going to sink a
shaft from the 500 foot level.
"The plant will be complete In every
particular, with pumps, hoist and equipment for electric lighting.
"In the meantime we have only a
few men working; but as soon as the
machinery is installed, the force will
be restored to Its former proportions,
and work will go ahead as before."

cliiliihood, especially precocious childhood, and in ihis latter respeel the Pollards fill the bill. Children are naturally Imaginative, ami ihey an' hy nature
the original Imitators and perhaps the
truest interpreters of the Btrange paradoxes that perplex older an.I wiser
heads, after the world's ideas of wis
dom. Thai ihe Pollards are exceptionally clover is proven hy tlie fact that
on iheir second visit to Nelson thej
played to houses which increased in
numbers with each performance. This
is the more an advertisement lor them,
because the theatre-going people oi
Nelson are for the most pint, a ...scrini-
Inating people, ami nothing hut a clever
company could expeel to hold the
woards with the success which complimented  their  lust   visit.
The Pollards were originally one
family���a large one, indeed���hut their
numbers were depleted hy natural
causes till the opportunity, and even
the necessity, arose to replace the ah
sen tees wiih fresh blood. This gave
rise to ihe organization of ihe training
school trom which ihe presenl Pollard
company graduated.
Having said this much, there will he
some excuse if we linn to the consideration of another question���fine which
has been often raised in the minds nf
even those who have heartily applauded  and   unstinting!y  admired   lhe    per
furmances of these    clever   ohildren.
Thai question is uf the wisdom ur unwisdom of determining al so tender an
Bge the future of these juveniles. Apart
from the physiological effects uf a life
so strenuous as that on the stage, the
late   hours,   tho   long journeys, ami    a
score of other features which Impose
a superlative slrain  upon  the physical
stamina  of those who follow this life,
there is in the ease of children another
and perhaps a more serious question.
The constant association of so large a
number  its  those   who  make  up    lhe
company,   the   absence  of   such   discipline as is familiar even in  the mosl
carelessly governed home. Ihe extraordinary   development   of   the   naturally
precocious nature of tluse chiluren, all
combine  lo   surround   the  question  of
their  future with   n   seriousness    lhat
compel  a question as to how far Ihe
public Is justified in crowning their lour
with plaudits and enabling their mana
gers to make financial harvest otil   of
their talents.
Added to this/ is a still graver question. It is understood lhat their early
advent on tbe stage is a sort of preliminary ur preparatory experience to
qualify them for the theatrical life;
lhat as they mature in years ami qualification Ihey will he transplanted to
higher realms of the dramatic art. Has
society the right to encourage the consignment of these innocents���who, presumably, have no choice in the matter���to a life which iu after years may
he repugnant to them? We do not wish
to advert to the well understood dangers incident to life on the stage. Many
actors ami actresses���probably most of
ihem���attain their years of ripe age
without suffering moral deterioration,
and we believe lhe slagu has been very
greatly relieved of the seriousness ol
the many charges which were hurled
against il years ago. Still, it has its
temptations; and while those who enter
u|K)ii such a career its a matter ol
choice, fully prepared to take the con-
sequences of their course, may be outside the rights of criticism, the case is
different when, from any reason, children of tender years are made the subjects of such adventure. And yet again,
while older people may realize,' in the
interpretation of such pretty little plays
as "The Belle of New York" and "The
Gaiety Girl," that they nre only acting
a part, it is a fair question to ask what
suggestIvenesa will these things have
mi Hie minds of lhe utterly innocent,
who must in any case have an unwholesome curiosity regarding the relationships in society which they are trained
to represent
We do not raise these questions to
prejudice the case oi' the Pollards.
They are not Ihe only little people who
are on the road. We are only inclined
to ask how far is society justified���or
is it to he al all Justified���in the search
for amusement and recreation, In demanding a possible modern slaughter
uf the innocents We presume thai
few of those parents who enjoyed to
the full the clever work of the Pollards
or the Bostonians would consider for a
moment the proposition to consign one
of their own children to the disadvantages, If nothing else, that such a life
Inflicts   upon   the  innocents.
It van reported in our columns yos-
terday thai his honor Lieutenant-Governor Dunsmuir had left early last
week fur a prolonged holiday in the
northern waters of Hritish Columbia,
as Is his oustotn year hy year, li was
al.su reported lhat Hon II, K. Green,
chief commissioner of lands and works,
had lefi Victoria for Cariboo on his
annual visii to that district. These
reports coming to hand will readily explain the arrogant actions of the opposition press. Tlie exchanges are beginning to come lo hand, and ntf they
appear lo all take their cue from a cen-
tral office in Victoria, it is not surprising lhat their utterances should all carry the same |H>liiicn| brand and he easily Identified anywhere.
The political scavengers of the oppo-
silion press are indulging In Iheir filthy
work. The time Is opportune for lhe
concoction of further scandalous falsehoods, and they seize it with avidity.
It is strictly in accordance with their
disreputable methods. What they dare
not manfully assert they Insinuate,
hiding behind an "it Is said" nnd "It is
reported." Theso cowardly insinuations and slanderous rumors they send
forth from  their foul  lairs, and a  de
spondent and querulous press gladly
prints them in offensive head-lines and
display   type.
The chief commissioner might very
well treat these vaporings of a distorted mind with the silent contempt which
ihey deserve. He might justly rest his
reputation upon 'he record of his department, ami lhe work it has accomplished since he has had Its direction.
IJut he has chosen to act In a different
way. It is well known that he hitnse'f
asked for the investigation, and that it
was in compliance wiih his request
lhat 'the ordei>ln-councll granting it
was passed, Yet lhe little curs who
dare not even snap at his heels when
present, hark their loudest ns soon a��
his hack is turned.
The McBride government, in its departmental as well as in its executive
work, possesses the confidence of iho
electors of the province, and this confidence will nol he shaken hy lhe irresponsible vaporings of disappointed
press agents,
The musl Ihe Vlotoria Dally Times
ventured to assert respecting the decision of ihe Hun. It. F. Oreen to ask
fur a judicial Investigation, as compared with other opposition papers,
"ii is announced ihat the government has decided to appoint a commis
sion to investigate ihe SenTs Point
scandal. -Vow lhe public would like io
he informed npou two points: whether
the premier was forced to take action
on the matter by a high autho Ity, and
what the scope of the Investigation
will he."
ll. seems exceedingly Improbable that
there is any ground for the fake press
The attempt on the pari of Mr. It.
U. McPherson, member of parliament
for Burrard, to throw discredit on Sir
Charles Hibhert Tupper as he did In
his Interrogation of the minister of justice on the Brothler case, is another
specimen of the small calibre of certain political schools. The idea ihat
Sir Hlhhert. Tupper would have any
Influence wiih a grit minister of jus
tlce shows how far out of his way Mr.
McPherson was prepared to go in order
lo find something out of which to make
political capital.
William Davidson, of Sandon, independent labor member of lhe legislative assembly from Ihe Slocan district,
was a visitor in the city Saturday, shaking hands wiih the many old Slocan
boys now resident here. Mr. Davidson,
when asked about the probability of a
provincial election this year, said that
he did nut expect to see an appeal tu
the people at. present, und not before
Ihis legislature hail run out iis allotted
lime, which would bring il next year,���
Phoenix  Pioneer.
Hon. .John Burns never gave the labor men better advice in his life than
that he gave to litem the other day
when he warned them of the danger
of isolating themselves from Ihe sympathy and help of Ihose who are in a
position to render ihe most powerful
aid to the cause of labor.
The thermometer keeps chasing it[i
and down in its efforts to keep Irack
uf the weather.
"Did you ever catch your husband
flirting?" asked  Mrs. Newcomb.
"Yes, dear." replied her friend. "That
is the way I did catch him."

The following paragraph, originally
appearing a8 an editorial In the Montreal Gazette, has been going fhe
rounds, and is worth repealing:
"In three years three strong men
have left the Laurior cabinet Mr.
Blair waa Ihe first of the trio. He had
aomo weaknesses. He tan tho Intercolonial railway like a comic opera,
and the country paid the price; bul he
was never in the manipulations ol constituencies and men, and where a government's record is not good this sort
of cleverness is what It needs. Next,
Mr. Sifton left. He Is In his way an exceedingly able man, anil outside the
government has done it better service
In defending its measures and its acts
than any of the ministers themselves
were able to render. Now, Mr. Fltz-
Patrick has gone. Ho may not have
been Mr. Blair's or Mr. Slfton's equal
in the art ofi winning elections In one
wuy If not in anolher; but he was their
superior in the house of commons, and
was there in many ways lhe most capable of all tbe cabinet. He had tile respect of men of both parlies, anil what
he said was given consideration, because of his personality as well as because of bis position. His retirement
lo take the chief justiceship of the supreme court will leave Sir Wilfrid Utu-
rier with not a tried and strong man
of thq first rank lo support him. Mr.
Fielding has been found out. He ia
losing hiB looks. Mr. Aylesworth, who
was brought in over the heads of all
tho old Ontario members, has yet to
prove what he is made of. The other
ministers run from men of moderate
ability to those of hardly any ability
at all. They are of little help to the
premier, nor is he of much help to
them. They drift through the sessions
of parliament, aad seemingly the business of the departments also drifts
along. If there was any strength in
them they would not have so many
charges of mismanagement to defend,
and they would proceed to the duty in
a way that would at least give the people the idea that they desired to do
right and lo punish those under them
who did wrong. As it is, they are acting as if they feared the light, and did
not know well how to keep it from
their doings. Their extravagance and
luck of foresight lias brought the country into a serious financial situation,
and at a time when it should be reduc
ing lis liabilities, will make it a heavy
borrower both to provide lor old liabilities and lo carry out new, ill-considered, unnecessary and costly works. It
docs not need a prophet lo see what the
eurl will be."

Winnipeg, June 18.���The Labor Day
committee of the trades and labor council held Its first meeting In the typographical rooms, Tribune block, on Saturday evening, when a program was
drawn up, grounds selected and other
matters pertaining to the celebration
of the day discussed. The committee
will try and arrange to have Keir Har-
die and other labor members of the
British house of commons here on Labor Day. Prominent Canadian trades
unionists who will attend the annual
meeting of the Dominion trades and labor congress In Victoria iu September
will be usked to make Winnipeg a stopping-over place on Labor Day.
The proposal that the labor members
of lhe British house of commons should
visit the colonies arose from amongst
themselves. The party forma a considerable and an influential body In the
British commons, and It was their desire to become belter acquainted with
the empire.
It Is expected thai Ihe parly will Include .1. R. Macdonald. Phillip Snow-
den, Will Crooks and olher very prominent labor men of Britain.

Men Complain That the Agreement is
Not  Being Kept.
More trouble Is said to be probable
between the Street Railway Company
or" Winnipeg and its employees, and serious developments are feared. The
men are complaining that the agree-
ment which ended the strike is being
broken In some of its most important
particulars. The company is said to be
carrying on a vigorous campaign to get
rid of the union. One clause of the
agreement provides that runs and promotions shall depend on seniority and
merit, and another that as far as possible the runs shall be arranged so
that men shall not work more than ten
hours a day. One of the chief com
plaints of the men is lhat old and callable niotorinen and conductors who
were prominent in the strike negotiation are being put on undesirable i una
and are made to work thirteen hours a
day, bolng told when they complain
lhal they can be "done without. There
are also other grievances.

The city of Winnipeg Is on the anxious seal aboul how the proposed Sunday obsorvunce will affect the running
of street cars In that city on Sunday,
Rev. Mr. Rochester, the newly appointed secretary of the L. D. A. for the
west, telegraphed to Rev. J. 0. Shearer
to know the worst that might bo feared. Mr. Shearer's reply was in substance that tho street railway company
and the citizens of Winnipeg need have
no rear on the subject, as the new bill
does not provide any legislation which
can interfere with Winnipeg. The only
way to stop street cars in that city is
by municipal ordinance. It would seem
that Ihe L. D. A. Is getting farther and
farther away from the objects which
they set out to achieve in their somewhat heavy undertaking to legislate Ihe
people of Canada into a atate of moral
regeneration. It Is a pity that llle spirit or commercial rapacity, love of
health and pleasure, with irrellgion,
should so materially conlrndlct the essential principles of a Sunday law. .
