CENTRAL MINE A WINNER
New Vein Carrying High Grade Gold
Ore���Assayed $200 a Ton-
Development in Progress
Very encouraging reports :\ recoming
from ilie Central mine, about 12 miles
from Nelson, to the westward.
The property consists of the Central
;iik1 Central Fraction claims, staked b>
Oscar Johnson ami Nels Lowenrlng, respectively. Both were acquired last
year by Rodolphe Legault ami associates, the bonding price reported being
$30,000.
Kiom the beginning of active opera
lions last fall good results were obtained, the average values found in the
ledge then worked being in tlie neigh
borhood uf $40 to the ton.
About a month ago a new vein waa
struck at greater depth, and steps wero
taken at ou.ee to open it up.
The owners are loo keenly interested
and too busy to come tu the city frequently.: but they make uo secret of
tlieeir good fortune to casual visitors.
it is said thai assays from the new
vein have run to $2<i<i a ton, and that
ihe average values, while not quite np
to that figure, are far better than an;
found on the property before.
ihe mines are situated two and a
half miles up Eagle creek.
Race Suicide in Ontario.

Albion hotel here, threw her infant
child from the window of a rushing

enild from the window she administered a dose of carbolic acid, from the
effects of which the infant died. She
admits the manner of disposing of the
child, but denies that she administered
the acid. The police are convinced of
her guilt, ami she will be tried at the
fall  assizes.
WHY THAW SHOT WHITE
THE  STORK'S   PROSPECTIVE   VISIT
MADE  A   CHANGED   MAN.
New   Light  on  Tragedy   Shows  Thaw
Was Driven to Desperation by
White's Brutality.
Pittsburg, July U.-VWhen Evelyn
Nesbitt Thaw whispered ihe news to
her liusbaml. Hurry Kendall Thaw,
that the stork wns soon to pay n visll
m iheir home, it made a changed man
of fhe young rake who has done so
much to disgrace the name he bore
and to break the heart of the mother
who has so idolized him.
Uut when she also told liiiu n short
lime ago lhal the man who had first
led her from the oaths of rectitude was
pursuing her, the brain of the young
man marly gave way. That, it is declared, was Ibe real "pause of the tragedy at Madison Square Garden,
i''or the last couple of months Harry
Thaw bud been a much changed man.
The drinking boms down town wen'
abandoned. He announced to his
friends thai he was done wllh Ihe old
life, nud he wus going to settle down
und make something of himself, lie
.lid nol tell why, but the secret leaked
out, and his wife fold her friends whal
she hoped for. and society���even thai
portion which bus been turning Us
sooty nose ill the air���was much Interested iu Ihe coming of an heir to the
Thaw millions.
Then tho persecution by White is
said lo have begun, or rather to have
Increased. Friends of lhe couple here
allege there has scarcely been a time
since their marriage tbal While was
not making overtures to the girl lo
huve her leave her husband nnd join
him again. In her condition she wus
distressed, and aHected much more seriously thai) she wus before. She saw
no way out, aud lluully appealed lo her
husband, anil then came the tragedy.

NEW STRIKE IN POPLAR
HECLA GROUP ON RAPID CREEK 18
HIGH GRADE.
W.   M.   Perry,  One   of   Leasees,   Down
With Sample of Ore���Claims Owners Are  Busy  Developing.
\V. M. Perry is down from the north
with a splendid sample of free milling
gold ore from the Hecla Fractional, on
Itapid creek, east of Poplar.
The property includes also the Calu-
ment and Hecla, and is near, and in
the same belt with, t��e- celebrated
Swede mine.
The specimen brought down by Mr.
Perry weighs seven pounds, and is
sprinkled all over with free gold.
In conversation with a representative
oi The Daily Canadian, Mr. Perry said:
"No, I haven't had this piece assayed.
There is no use. It would run into
thousands. But I have had a scratch
sample assayed showing $88 a ton
right across the face of a 22-foot ledge.
"Samples as rich as this can be
picked up from ali over the two claims.
This one is from a depth of 40 feet, the
bottom of the present shaft. The ledge
I have spoken of runs straight across
both claims.
"Jack Chisholm is the locator. Ed.
Brown and I h ve a bond and lease on
it for a year from the Isl of June.
"We have three men there now on
development work, and will keep on all
the year.
"There is a lot of development work
going on now in the Poplar Creek district. Tlie mines are all right, but capital is scarce. The work is being done
generally in a small way by the owners
or lessees.
"We are going to open up the Hecla
as fast us we can. There Is enough
paying rock already in sight to keep
us going for the term of our bond."
Loot In Russia.
London, July 11.���A despatch from
Rl. Petersburg to a news agency says
thai three young men in students' uniform shot and wounded a paymaster
nnd two watchmen Ihis afternoon in the
ofllce of the paymaster of the admiralty
and decamped with a team with $12,000.
SUNS HI SAVE THE KING
SUNG   IN   IMPERIAL   CHAMBER  OF
COMMERCE.
Resolution on  Preferential Tariffs Carried Enthusiastically at Yesterday's Session.
London, July 11���The resolution in
favor of preferential treatment on n
reciprocal basis Introduced In behalf of
the Montreal board of Irade ot the opening of the session of congress of the
chamber of comiueree of the empire
was carried at today's session amid a
remarkable scene of enthusiasm. The
vote was preceded by a further animated discussion for and against the
resolution. The Australian delegates
considered it to lie Impracticable, and
wnile the Madras representatives approved of It. Ihe British delegations
appeared to bo divided, but when an
expression of opinion waB called for, a
foresi of hands went up ln favor of the
resolution and ouly a dozen voted
against It.
The Canadians Ihen rose In a body,
and the hall re-echoed with their
cheers, while Ihe audience lustily sang
"Hod Save the King."
PARIS SENSATION
Condemned Man Wants
Head Chopped Off
REFUSES COMMUTATION
Stubborn Determination of Criminal May Lead to Change
in Legislation.
New York, July 11.���A cable despatch
to a morning paper from Paris says: "I
want to be guillotined. They condemned me lo death, nnd they shall execute
me. I'll have none of iheir pardons.
There is no reason for n revision of
my sentence. Paris has not seen an execution in ten years, and I am going to
give them the sight first."
This Is the declaration made by
Pierre Adams to the police authorities
and lawyers who were trying to persuade him to appeal for commutation
of his death sentence for murder. He
has resisted their persuasions persistently for three weekB, and clamors to
have his head cut off.
The authorities do not intend to comply with his wishes. The situation is
an uncomfortable one. The law prescribes that executions shall be public,
but since the guillotine was removed
some years ago from the notorious
Place de la Roquette, the local officials
everywhere have successfully resisted
the attempts to secure a new site, and
the axe has lain idle in a shed, the officers of justice not venturing to offend
any part of the city by insisting upon
its erection. They have consequently
persuaded persons condemned to death
to'appeal for the commutation, which
has been forthwith granted. Adams'
unprecedented refusal creates a difficulty. A public execution invariably
leads to a disgusting carouse and misbehavior by the scum of the city, and
the establishment of the guillotine anywhere without the assent of the authorities representing the respectable citizens would inevitably arouse anger.
Hence the reluctance to carry out
death sentences. Bills are under discussion alternately legalizing private
executions and abolishing capital punishment, and Adams' novel attitude
may lead to the passing of one or the
other.
CLAIMS OFJOAT CLUB
WHY THE  REGATTA  IS ENTITLED
TO SUPPORT.
Does More to Advertise Attractions of
Nelson than All Other Schemes
Together.
Reports of comment 'on the Nelson
Boat Club and the regatta made at last
night's meeting of the Twenty Thousand Club have led to a lot of discussion on the streets today. It is pointed
out that the request of the club for assistance in entertaining visitors to the
regatta Is not at all unreasonable or un
Justified.
Whatever it may have been many
years ago, the Nelson Boat Club Is now
a thoroughly popular organization.
Membership In it is open lo all, and
through it every young man and hoy
In the city is offered opportunity for
maaly, healthy and enjoyable sport.
The only revenue of the club is the
membership tees, its contests ami ex
hibitlons are all open to lhe public. It
would be Impossible to collect admission fees If the committee desired to
do so.
The club Is at a heavy annual ex
peiuliture for equipment and for the
expense.of sending crews to represent
Nelson at the regattas at Ihe coasl.
The expense of the regatta ln home waters, where it Is held once every four
years, is about $1,500.
The question of public support for
the boat club and the regatta is: Is it
worth the city's while to enable the
club io maintain its membership in tlte
N. P. A. A. O. with crews from the
larger and wealthier cities of Victoria,
Vancouver and Portland?
To that question, it is generally felt,
there can be but one answer. Permanent residents of Nelson may be held
here by wealth of mines, by interest in
timber or fruit lands, or In other business enterprises, but the tourists from
whom the city hopes so much are at
Iracled solely by the beautiful stretches
of navigable water, the scenery of Iheir
shores and the refreshing breezes they
bring.
Millions of advertising pamphlets
would not be half so effective In attracting attention to Kootenay lake as
is lhe annual appearance ot trained
crews of the Nelson Boat Club ou the
waters of ocean ports.
Apart altogether from the desirabil
ity of encouraging clean sport and increasing the pleasures of the people of
Nelson, as a mere advertising institution the Nelson Boat Club and the regatta Is cheaper in proportion to its
results than any other conceivable
means.
NOW AN  ASSAYER.
Last Week He Waa Only a Poor Mixer
of Paints.
Seattle, July 11.���Investigations made
by the German Society of this city
show, the society claims, that August
Rosenberg, a former resident of Seattle,
now under arrest in Germany on suspicion of being an anarchist with designs upon the life of Emperor William, was a plain everyday mining man.
It has also been shown that the chemicals found in his former residence
were such as those used by assayers.
The anonymous letter on which he
was arrested in Germany Is supposed
to have been written by a relative with
whom he had had trouble.
Vice-Admiral Wounded.
Sehastopol, July 11.���An attempt waa
made at 1 o'clock this afternoon to assassinate VIce-Admlral Chouknin, commander of Ihe Black Sea fleet. The
admiral was wounded and taken to a
hospital. VIce-Admlral Chouknin has
heen blamed for his severity, and It
was to the treatment of the crews ot
the ships under his command that the
mutiny on board the battleship Knlaz
Potemklne In June and July last year
was attributed.

The treasurer explained that the revenue would have heen sufficient to
warrant a dividend, but on account of
the default of several promised subscribers, some of It had to be used for
capital expedlture.
The report was received and ordered
to be audited. An account of $2.20 for
notices wus passed.
The eleclion of officers resulted:
President, T. G. Procter; vice-president, W. W. Reer; secretary, J. E. Annable: treasurer, J. H. Wallace; auditor. H. Bird; directors, \V. G. Gillett,
J. M. Lay, P. Lamont.
The meeting then adjourned.

Laborer* Quit Work.
Buffalo, N. Y.. July 11���A general
strike of freight handlers has been declared at this port for an Increase in
wages from 17 to 20 cents per hour. The

were disappointed, for a general strike
wns declared affecting all companies
where freight handlers are employed.
SEEK CZAR'S LIFE
Bombs Found in he Imperial Gardens
THE DUMA CRITICIZED
Heterogeneus Assembly Too Divided in Personnel to Agree
on Constitution.
St. Petersburg, July 11.���One of the
curious features of the debate ln the
upper house of parliament yesterday on
the bill of the lower house providing
for the abolition of the death penalty
was a speech made by Father Bulla-
vlch, the priest elected by the orthodox clergy, in which he seriously defended the death penalty on the ground
that It was justified both by God and
Christ, citing the laws of Moses and
Christ's statement before Pilate as recognitions of the right to Impose capital
punishment.
The Riche today declares that the
tone of the debate In the upper house
leaves little hope that this assembly of
bureaucrats, land and commercial magnates and representatives of the reactionary nobility and clergy, with a
small leaven of liberals, will ever be
able to work in harmony with the- progressive ideas represented in parliament.
The Novoe Vremya, on the contrary,
defends the conservative spirit of the
upper house, and appeals to the emperor to entrust power to the constitutional democrats of the lower house, who,
the paper Insists, "are augmenting the
danger of an explosion by their cowardly refusal to clasp hands with the
right or break wltb the left."
New York, July 11.���According to a
St. Petersburg despatch to the World,
there was a wild consternation at the
Imperial palace at Peterhof yesterday
following the discovery in the garden
of that palace of several bombs filled
with dynamite. The excitement and
dread were Indescribable. It was obvious that the bombs must have been
placed there by some one connected
with the palace, either as officer, guard
or servant, and every one equally waa
under suspicion.
General Trepoff, the commandant,
immediately put in motion all the machinery of his office to discover the culprit, but thus far without result. In
the meantime the person of the czar Is

A RECANTATION.
The Daily Newa of yesterday, In Ita
article on the Kaien Island sales, makes
practically ;i recantation of Its former
charges agalnsl  the governmenl in re*
spect to theBe things,    Passing up Its
appeal to the public for more liberal
support, In which 11 Is nol our business
to Interfere or even to sympathize, the
News has nothing to say thai In anj way
Incriminates the members of the government, nor in any way reflects upon
Its business capacity,   faced with tlie
plain truth the News will Iimi that iis
persist en i  policy  of  misrepresentation
In the matter of this deal will be right
ly estimated by the people,   and    the
consequences  of iis  perversion of  tii ���
truth will have iis merited reward.  The
News has lieen unfair iu all its references to this matter, beginning  with Its
reports of  tho sessions  of  the  house
and of the Investigation    which    was
bold by a commission of the legislature.     The   reports   published   in   thttl
paper���and for which ii took so muth
credit at the time���were nothing more
than political comments on the speeches of the members of the bouse.   They
were laudations of everything that was
said by members of the opposition and
Bifabismussed  observations of  all  the
actions of members of the government
EDven the evidence before tbe commission   was perverted   in   the   News'   reports, ami yet it lias lieen consistently
harping upon the affair, as though its
own report was author!tatrve.    When
the   stenographic    report of that commission  is  issued  it   will  only   require
ibe publication of paralcll columns In
show  tbe public how Impossible it  is
for the morning paper to be lair when
dealing with  political opponents.
Afler   reading   the    devious    article
with  which,  in    yesterday's    paper  ii
seeks to justify itself, we find it has reduced  its  complain!   to  the  following
paragraph, which   we  propose  to dls
Tlie News says:
('Having boon accorded special privll-
es, having been placed in a position
"lo negotiate lhe sale of public lands in
which they had no more legitimate interesi  than any of the readers of this
paper, for instance, they wen- enabled
lo carry out their adventure successfully; that is to say Mr. Bodwell was able
to got the ear of the Qrand Trunk Pacific Railway Company with a view io
future retainers or o solicltorahlp, bis
client Larson was enabled to approach
the company on a friendly basis wllh a
view lo const rucl ion contracts and -Mr.
Bod well's other client. Anderson, was
enabled to dejKisii  to bis credit  in the
bank  several   thousand   dollars  end   to
secure from the company a promise to
pay an additional sum ol' $40,000."
There Is nothing outside tin* columns
of the morning paper to show thai
Messrs. Bodwell and Larson obtained
any "special privileges" from lhe provincial government. The use of the
phrase Is as unfair as it is untrue, ami
the statement is as untrue n�� it i�� unfair. Any duly accredited representative of the G. T. P. could have negotiated the Kimo sale with the members
of the government   for  the same pur
pose, or for any other legitimate use of
Hie lands lhat would inure to tbe bene
m or ibe province. Tlie government
(which ihe News says was "through
weakness, inability to resist the persuasions of real estate speculators" and
���inability to negotiate the sale of public lands direct," etc.), had successfully
resisted the attempt of the G. T. V. to
bold up the province for six million
acres. These Diets were well known
to every real eslate speculator In Victoria, and that Bodwell et al. were ou
the ground wiih a new proposal, name
ly, lo buy the lands al regulation values and pay for ihem In good coin of
the realm, Is simply to pay a compliment to the wfde-awakeness of these
"speculators" or "band of adventurers,"
as the News is pleased to call them.
Bul  lei us look at lhe remuneration
Ihese ".speculators"  received  for  negotiating a deal.   Mr. Bodwell, according
i.i tbe morning paper, "was able to gel
the ear of lhe (J. T. P.   with   a view to
future retainers."    We ask, who would
pay   these   future retainers?    Not   the
province, not the tax-payers, but the G.
T.  I\, in case they should employ Mr.
Bodwell.    Mr.  Larsen "was enabled to
approach   the  company   on   a   friendly
basis with a view to construction con-
traeis."    May  we ask  who would  pay
for this "future" work to lie done by
Larsen?   Not the province, nor iis taxpayers.    The last man, Anderson, "was
enabled to deposit in the bank several
thousand  dollars."    Did  the    province
pay Ibis?    The News knows, or ought
to know, lhat   the  "several    thousand
dollars was Larsen's honest repayment
of Anderson's legitimate outlay in  Investigating  terminal   sites and   reporting upon the same, together with such
honorarium as I.arsen though! be mlghl
honestly be entitled to.   Not one cent
oi this money came from the proceeds
of tbe sale of this land, nor from the
public funds in any way. The News further  says Anderson   was  enabled   "to
secure the promise of the company lo
pay an additional sum of $40,000."    It
is true that  there seems to have been
some misunderstanding between Anderson aud the G. T. P. iu which a question of $-10,000 was involved; hut if Hie
News is aware of the facts in lhe case,
it should  in common  honesty  tell    iis
readers what they were and allow them
io form    their   own   conclusions,   ii
should in any case tell its readers tbal
the company repudiated this promise,
oi denied ever having made It, and tints
the money was never paid, tint! that it
was agreed  by  Anderson that  it need
nol be paid.
riie careful concealment of lhe facts
by   Ihe  morning   paper  is  explainable
only ou the assumption that that paper
is seeking to create the impression that
there was some unwarranted advantage
secured by ibe "band of adventurers,"
ami   tbat   there  was  a   "rake-on"    for
some one iu the deal.    There Is not  a
little of evidence to support  ihis suspicion, and there never was.   Tbat was
just where tbe leader of the opposition
fell down.   He slarted off on that scent,
and alter (he fullest investigation discovered   nothing    more    than   that     a
.Straight and business-like deal bad been
negotiated by ihe government with the
duly accredited  representatives of tbe
<i. T. P.    The government did not sell
lis   lands  to  Bodwell  and   Larsen;    it
sold them to the G. T. P., and the G. T.
J',  pays for ihem;   and,    furthermore,
there is no evidence In existence that
anyone profited to lhe extent of a single centime on the  transaction.
rations for ihe observance of Labor
Day, and both by securing cheap excursion rates and providing an attractive
program is giving thai enterprising
city a boom after iis own kind. The
declaration of lhe Dominion governmenl a few years ago tbal a given day
should lie set apart as a legal holiday
ou which ihe people who toil could arrange for such entertainment, conven
lions and public assemblages as would
further their cause, was one of lhe wise
things which that government has done.
Ever since lhat time labor leaders and
labor organizations have made a special
feature of the holiday, and tbe occasion
has been used to create a public Bontl-
ment and arouse public feeling upon
the political and economic questions
affecting ibe righis of the laboring
classes.
The recognition of the producing sir-
nietu in society by such events has
brought about a much better feeling between what lhe proletarian call \ Ihe
masses aud ibe classes, although WC do
not like Ibe terms, as iu Ihis and .;!'
other democratic eon ut ides the difter-
ence is more in name than in reality'
The opportunity fur public spe\ he�� by
representatives id' the people, both in
legislative and labor circles, will do
much iu bring aboul  harmonious loin
lions   and   tlie  ahuliliou     nf     ohlSo con
scions feeling, while ihe gay mingling
iu spurts and pnatlmos by all clasm-s
will show thai at heart tbe peopl who
constitute a community have and maintain cumnion relationships and sin-.,.
for a common cud.
it is right, too, ihat ihese occasions
should lie divided up and passed about
from place to place, so lhat the segregated communities may have opportunity to share in each others' celebrations. The management of an affair
ot such magnitude involves labor ami
pains on the part of promoters, and
each cily should have Us own reward.
We wish tbat Cranbrook may have in
combination the climatic, social and
festal conditions that will make Labor
Day a unique occasion.

EDITORIAL COMMENT.
A prominet resident of tbe prairie
metropolis recently returned from an
extended tour of England and the Continent, and after an Interview with the
Winnipeg Telegram thai paper moralises on lho opportunities of Canada.
Il says:
"He was astonished at the number of
enquiries thai were made of him concerning Canada. The British people
have undoubtedly a keener Interesi in
Canadian opportunities for Investraenl
than they ever had before. The question is, are we realizing tbe full value
of this popular interest. Publicity is
what Canada needs abroad. Give Ihe
Dominion's opportunities ihe rlghl kind
of publicity in Europe and in so far as
the most desirable settlers aro concerned Immigration will take care of
itself. Canada has paid too much attention to the question of moving emigrants and loo little attention to lhe
question of Interesting them. The result is that we have paid out. large
sums of money lo bring Europeans to
this country when with an enlightened
campaign of publicity there would have
come of there own accord thousands of
more desirable people.
Publicity is tho essence of Canada's
immigration problem today. We have
reached the point when we can rely
largely on our merits in the matter of
investment, and settlement and it remains for the Immigration department
to advertise these merits abroad. Canada for the present has gone far enough
In the direction of bringing oul Europeans who can't bring themselves. Lei
u.. improve the golden occasion of Canada's jump Into the eves of the world
to publish systematically our advantages among a class of people who only
need to ho told what Canada hns to
offer to come withoul aid or persuasion.

The Daily Canadian
ARE NEGLECTING DUTY
SOME   MEMBERS    OF     20,000   CLUB
GROWING CARELESS.
Working  Directors' Meeting���Plans for
Excursions���Rewards to  Both
Popularity Candidates.
The work of the Twenty Thousand
Club is meeting with sonic hindrance
from lhe lack of interest shown by u
few who necept office und neglect to
perforin the duties. The chief dlsciiB-
sion at hiKt night's meeting of the executive committee of lhe club arose from
tlie fact lhat the advertising commit-
cte as at present constituted has noi
held a single meeting, although several
urgent matters have been referred to It.
Satisfactory arrangements for the
two excursions on the Kunkanook under club auspices on Thursday were
reported and approved,
Miss McCandllsh, the winner of the
club's popularity contest, is to receive
a. ticket to the coast cities and return
and $76 for expenses. Miss Cameron
receives a present of $60, Both receive
Ihe hearty thanks of the club for their
successful efforts to raise funds.
The club smoker will he given at
last, and for the benefit of the boat club
to assist them in meeting the expenses
oi the regalia. While the club was
eager to aid the oarsmen, It was felt
tbat a vote of money might establish a
dangerous precedent.
The meeting convened at 8:30. Those
present were: T. <J. Procter, vice-president, in the chair; F. M. Chadbourn,
M. S. Parry. J. M. Lay, I. O. Nelson, A.
i^ean, W. H. Jones, i. E. Taylor, W. G.
Thomson.
I. O. Nelson, for the entertainment
committee, reported arrangements for
excursions Thursday afternoon aud
evening. Tickets are fixed at $1, of
which the club receives half. Dancing
will be arranged for in the dining room
anil on the lawn of the Outlet hotel. It
ifc also provided that people may go on
the Kokanee in the morning and return at G p. in. The band and orchestra
accompany both excursions and play
for the dancers. Refreshments are arranged for, and all excursionists will
be well entertained.
M. S. Parry added that picked coal
had been secured, and a record trip
would be made. The Kuskanook takes
her regular trip on Saturday, and wil!
not be available for excursions or pic* j
nics again this year.
S. M. Llrydges. convener of the advertising committee, was not present,
ami there was no report. J. E. Taylor,
one of the new tn nibefj, complained
that no meeting had ue m held yet, and
that an active convener s'lOUId be appointed. The secretary was Instructed
to communicate with Mr. Urydges.
The secretary read a letter from the
general manager of the Winnipeg fait
asking for Information, which had not
been considered because the advertising  committee had  not  met.
T. Ci. Procter urged that the committee meet its soon as possible and arrange for immediate co-operation wiih
the Fruit Growers' Association.
A letter from K. M. Palmer, secretary of the provincial bureau of information, asked for pamphlets, folders and
views for display at western fairs.
A letter from P. M. Black, president,
communicated a suggestion from G. E.
Brown, of the Hraekman-Ker company,
that the Spokesman-Review of Spokane
be asked to include the N. P. A. A. O.
regatta and the Nelson fair in its list of
coming events. The secretary was instructed to do R".
The secretary reported further replies from papers to the mining reports
sent out by the club.
M. S. Parry stated that V. Hyde P>a-
ker, of Cranbrook, would loan *an exhibit of furs and Indian relics, if ii
were carefully handled, guarded and
insured.
The secretary was instructed to order
600 buttons of the club in Nelson colors for sale at the fair.
The secretary reported the proceeds
of the popularity contest at $1,088, with
expenses of about $25, It was resolved
that Miss McCandllsh receive a return
tiekel to the coast nnd $7fi for expenses, and Miss Cameron $-r>o, nnd that
the thanks of the club be extended to
both,
.1. M. Lay presented a request from
the boat club for co-operation in making the regatta a success, lie thought
that the regatta was a splendid advertisement for the city, and should he assisted.
The chairman approved the suggestion, but others thought tbat lhe boat
club should be advised to canvass the
merchants.
T. G. Procter pointed out that the regatta Is hold iu Nelson only once in
four years, nnd is one of Nelson's best
advertisements and attractions.
A suggestion that a smoker be held
by lhe club and the proceeds he given
to the boat club was approved and
adopted.
An account of fin a month for office
rent from April 1st was passed, and the
