The regular meeting of Rossland
Lodge No 8, A. O. U. W„ will hereafter
be held at Carpenters Union hali,becond
avenue, every Tuesday at 8 p.m.
Owing to the laok of wind the
first raoe ot the series held in New
York today for the America Cup
between the challenger, Shamrock
III, and the defender, Relianoe,
wae oalled off. The yachts had a
fair wind to start with whioh never
very strong soon died out. As long
as the wind lasted the Shamrook
apparently had the best of it but
as the wind dropped the lighter
boal, the Relianoe, gradually drew
ahead and by the time she had
reached the turning mark, 15 miles
away, was nearly three miles ahead
of the challenger. By this time
over four and a half hours of the
time limit of five hours had
elapsed and as it was impossible to
return in the 23 minutes remaining of the time, the raoe was oalled
off. The course was fifteen miles
to windward and return.
The next raoe will be sailed on
Saturday and then on eaoh alternate day until the series, the best
three out of fine, has been completed. The first of the series is a
15 mile oourse to windward and
return. The next is a ten mile triangular oourse, and so on alternately.
The betting on Relianoe in New
York was two to one before the
raoe and today's resnlt has not
altered the odds as, although the
Reliance has undoubtedly proved
herself the superior boat in light
winds, her superiority in heavier
weather is not so demonstrable.
Muoh interest is being taken locally in the race and the Palaoe
hotel, the enterprising proprietor
of which had a special wire
brought in, was crowded with visitors all day, awaiting breathlessly the announcing of the bul-
leting pouring in as the contest
prooeeded. To heighten the interest and to more graphically oonvey
the oondition of the race, Mr. Harron has placed wires along his
spacious hall on which representatives of the Shamrook and Reliance
are drawn as the raoe proceeds.
He announces that he will have
the bulletins posted for the remainder of the series, so tbat
Rossland sportsmen will bave
every opportunity of procuring the
earliest possible news of the contests as it is going on.
Following are the bulletins:

Vanoouver, Aug. 20.—The first
evidence in the Treadgold commission was taken yesterday,
George White Fraser being asked
by the commission to suggest the
best method of relief, said: "An
annual Treadgold monopoly of
Klondike waters, give tbem five
thousand inches as tbeir grant calls
for, but do not tie up the balance
to the exolusion of all others."
The witness stated that capital
was ready and waiting to put in a
system of water supply for the
oreeks if it oould get the right to
proceed with the important improvement.
The inquiry became distinctly
interesting when Sigmund Rothschild proved a very self possessed
and valuable witness. As president of the Detroit-Yukon syndicate, purchasers of the famous
Williams' concession on Hunker
oreek, Mr. Rothschild testified that
his company had made vast expenditures upon their property only to
have it now idle upon their hands,
because water oould not be got to
operate at a profit.
Asked definitely why the property lies idle Mr. Rothschild said:
"Because it cost one hundred dollars to get over seventy-five dollars
and nineteen cents gold, as things
are at present."
The witness stated that his oompany was ready at the present
time to invest millions if necessary
in the establishment of a perfect
water system and to sell the water
at a prioe whioh all could pay and
make money, if only the right to
do so could be seoured.
William Soouse, the original
staker of claim 14, Eldorado, gave
evidence that he had bonded that
property to an English syndicate
but that the deal had fallen
throng, solely for the reason that
water could not be had
John Cameron, a veteran u ~i-
boo miner following, compared the
Cariboo workings with those of the
Klondike and asserted that Cariboo's solution of the water problem
would work equally well iu the
northern fields.

The danger of employing Chinese labor where intelligence ami
trustworthiness are required, says
the Vancouver Province, and especially where the Uvea of fellow-
workmen are dependent upon
the exercise of these qualities, is
abundantly shown by the evidence
which has been given at the inquiry into the cause of the explosion at Cumberland. The discovery
of matches and smoking materials
on the persons of the Chinamen
who were killed is quite sufficient
proof of their use of them during
the hours of their employment. It
is true enough that now and again
we find instanoes is which the more
ignorant among Europeans have
been guilty of conduct of this kind,
but the instances are isolated and
it is possible to impress upon any
class of European people, no matter how low they may be in the
scale of civilization, the necessity
for putting a check upon themselves where the danger ia great and
obvious. It does not seen possible
however to instill this necessity into the minds of coolie Chinamen
under any circumstances whatever
That has been proved too often to
require reiteration. Under theBe
circumstances their employment in
any capacity whatsoever in coal
mines should be made absolutely
illegal, as their presence at such
labor is an endacgerment of the
lives of the white workmen.
The position taken by Mayor
Dean as to the slopping of gambling
and of the illicit sale of liquor,
which is that they must be put
down, whatever the coat, is perfectly proper. The camp decided at
the last election that gambling was
to be stopped. The wishes of the
camp must be carried out. The
payerH of heavy sums annually for
for the privilege of selling liquors
must be protected. But the point
of the debate now going on amongst
tbe City Fathers, is not that the
aotion of the mayor] in his attempt
to put down these infractions of
the law, waB improper. Quite the
reverse. The point is that he acted without consulting his council.
The councillors are appointed for
this very purpose, and if they are
to be ignored tbey may as well be
dispensed with altogether, leaving
the whole power iu the hands of
one man for one year. This may
or may not be a better system than
the present, but it is Bullicient to
say that it is not the present system. The head of the present system is tho mayor, but he is a part
of the system and not above it. He
must govern himself according to
the the requirements of the municipal system of the province. He
cannot be permitted to set it aside.
Rossland itself san confer no such
power upon him.
The mayor alleges that had he
consulted his oouncil he could not
bave carried out his investigations
to a successful issue. Aside from
the point that in the event they
were not carried oat to a successful issue, Mayor Dean in making
such a statement, simply declares
his belief that his councillors cannot be trusted. But the people
have staled that they are to be
trusted, and the mayor must govern himself accordingly. He
trusted somebody else, amongst
others au alien detective, who upon
oath declared he was not a detective. Evidently his trust was misplaced. He does not trust his
police, for he declares that they
were unable to do the work set
them. Well, he is himself responsible for the personnel of that
police. If they cannot do their
duty they should be discharged and
others employed who oan fulfil the
requirements of tbe Chief Magistrate. This is apparently the
obvious course. But the mayor
would not take the obvious course
and would not consult those whom
the people have selected to be consulted in taking a course peculiarly
his own. That course has failed,
and now the mayor advances tbe
the goodness of his motives, as the
reason why the city should foot the
bill. In the ordinary course of
things it is probable that the prosecution of the mayor's end would
not have cost the city over $100.
By selecting a solicitor, again without consulting his council, at a
time when the appointment of city
solicitor was vacant, tbe mayor has
rendered the city liable to special
fees, which if governed strictly by
precedent, cannot be taxed much
less than $500.
Mayor Dean feels hurt tbat his
motives are impugned. But most
people are willing to admit the
purity and excellence of his motives
What is complained of is that he
assumed a responsibility which he
was not called upon to shoulder,
and now wants the city to assume
the financial consequences of hio
unauthorized policy, It is of no
use scolding the public or the public press. The other side have an
equal right to have their motives
unchallenged as has the mayor.
The four aldermen who have
brought this matter to an issue,
Messrs. McKichan, Daniel, Talbot
and Armstrong cannot be said to
be possessed of any worse motives
than the mayor himself. By their
oath of office they are bound to
protect the interests of the people.
If the mayor can spend money in
one instance without consulting his
council, he can do so in others. It
is the thin edge of the wedge,
and as a matter of publio welfare
such a system, foreign to the province, must be opposed. It is useless to say that the four councillors
in question are moved by a spirit
of contrariness. It does not alter
the facts of the case in the least.
Besides such an allegation  is oh

viously untrue, as Alderman Mc
Kioban has notoriously given the
mayor every chance, and the
spirit of contrariness is the very
last charge that can be brought
against him, It is as absurd to
characterize thiB defence of the
ratepayers as due to a fear that
those councillors who support the
mayor, after the fact, in unauthorized expenditures, are themselves
jointly and severally liable to the
whole amount, should it be paid
out of tbe oity treasury. There is
also a precedent, in the case of
Mayor Scott, where an injunction
was taken out on a somewhat similar case by a ratepayer whioh
gives that fear more than justifia
ble grounds. Why should any
alderman be called upon to pay for
his chief's mistakes, no matter how
pure the motives which led to their
commission? Why should the

or the party in matters of provincial roads and
trails; the ownership and control of railways
and trie development of tho agricultural resources of the province aa laid down in the
platform adopted in October, 1899, which is as
"To actively aid in the construction of trails
throughout the undeveloped portions of the
province and tho building of provincial trunk
roads of public necessity.
"To adopt the principles or government own
ershlp of railways in so far as the circumstances of the province will admit, and the
adoption of the principle that no bonus should
be granted to any railway company which
does not give the government of the province

with the option of purchase.

freedom to construct railways under eortaiu
approved regulations, analogous to the system
that has resulted in such extensive railway
construction in tho United States, with so
much advantage to trade and commerce.
3. That to encourage the industry,
the taxation of metalliferous mines should be
on this basis of apercentage on the net profits.
4. That the government ownership of tele
Shonesystems should be brovght about as a
rst step in the acquisition of public utilities.
5. That a portion of every coal area here
after to be disposed of should be reserved from
sale or lease, so that state owned mines may be
easily accessible, if their operation becomes
necessaryor advisable.
6. That in thc pulp lnnd leases provision
should be made for reforesting and that steps
should be taken for the general preservation of
forests by guarding against the wasteful destruction of timber.
7. That the legislature and government of
the province should persevere in the effort to
secure the exclusion of Asiatic labor.
8. That the matter of better terms in the
way of  subsidy and appropriations for the
Brovlnce should be vigorously pressed upon the
ominion government.
9. That the silver-lead industries of the province be fostered and encouraged by the imposition of increased customs duties ou load and
lead products Imported Into Canada, and that
the Conservative members of the Dominion
House bo urged to support any motion introduced for such a purpose
10. That as industrial disputes almost invariably result in great loss and injury both to the
parties directly concerned and to tho publio,
legislation should be passed to provide means
for an amicable adjustment of sueh disputes
between employers and employes.
II, That It is advisable to foster the miiim

Grand PorkB, Aug. 19.—At a
meeting of the Grand Forks) Liberal Association tbe following resolution, moved by L. P. Eckstein
and seconded by P. T. McCallum,
was passed:
Whereas the system of taxation
within British Columbia nnder
existing laws and methods is
inequitable inasmuch as discrimination is made by statute and otherwise in favor of railway and other
rich corporations and individuals:
And whereas it is enaoted by
section 4 of the Railway Assessment act, passed in the year 1894,
as follows: The land occupied
and claimed as the right of way for
railway companies and other lands
oocupied by the railway company
for stations or engine houses, or
freight sheds, or other buildings
connected with the actual operation of the railway, including the
amount of rolling Btock, shall be
assessed as a whole at the sum of
$3000 per mile of track, including
sidings of the railway company
situated within the province, and
without the limits of any incorporated municipality:
And whereas it ia further enacted by statute, that no municipality
incorporated after the 21st day of
Feburary 1895 shall assess any
l«>d occupied and claimed by a
railway company as the railroad
right of way, or occupied for railroad station?, engine house, freight
sheds, railroad buildings, sidings,
or any of the personalty, property
of the company, including stock or
equipment, and the Bame shall not
be subject to   munioipal   taxation.
And whereaB this total exemption of taxation of railway property
within municipalities as aforesaid
and the almost practical exemption
from taxation without municipalities is unfair and unjuBt, moro especially in those cases where liberal aid by subBidy, always exceeding the limit of assessment so
fixed by Btatute, has been granted:
And whereas the financial straits
of the province are in a great measure due to exception from taxation
of railroads and other rich corporate and individual interests
which are well capable of bearing
and which ought to bear a fair and
equitable assessment and taxation.
Be it therefore resolved by the
Graud Forks Liberal Association,
that an early appeal ia demanded
of the Railway Assessment aot and
Municipal Clauses act, in so far
as those acts either limit or wholly
exempt railway companies from
And we call for an early readjustment of the assessment laws of
the province upon a basL-i tbat will
ensure fair and equitable taxation
of all porsons and corporations.

How the Cup  Was  First
History  of the   First   Contest  of
More Than a Half Century
Just over 52 yearB ago, sayB W.
J. Wintle in the London Magazine,
in the year of the great exhibition
of 1861, Lord Wilton, at that time
Commodore of the Royal Yaoht
Squadron, wrote to Mr, J. T.
Stevens, Commodore of the New
York Yacht Club, which had then
been recently formed, stating tbat
he had heard of the building of a
new schooner yacht called the
America, which waB reported to be
constructed on new lines, and to
have attained a very remarkable
speed. As it waB propoaed te bring
this vessel to English waters with
a view to taking part in the Cowes
regatta, Lord Wilton offered the
hospitality of the Royal Yacht
Squadron's club house at Cowes to
those members of tho New York
Yacht Club who could avail themselves of it.
A little later a meeting of the
Royal Yacht Squadron took place
at the Thatched House Club in St.
James' street, when it was "unanimously agreed to give a cup of the
value of £100, open to yaohts belonging to the clubs of all nations,
subject to the regulations of the
Royal Yacht Squadron, the course
to be round the Isle of Wight."
Accordingly the America crossed
the Atlantic in seventeen and a half
days—its log book containing the
mournful entr}7, "our liquor is all
but gone"—and anchored at Havre,
where a jib boom was put on with
flying jib above it. She then
crossed the Channel, but was compelled by fog to anchor six miles
from Cowes. On the following
morning a British yacht came out
to show her the way in; but it was
the America which really showed
the way, for her companion was
left far behind.
The race took place en August
22, when 15 competitors took part.
The America purposely got away
well in the rear of the other racers,
but before the first turn in the
ohannel she was rapidly swooping
through the midst of the Bquadron,
and when the raoe finished at 8
o'clock in the evening she came in
20 minutes ahead of the Becond
boat, although the latter was so
small that, had she received time
allowance under the rule,Bhe would
only have been defeated by two
minutes. It is interesting to note
that the early part of the raoe waB
witnessed by Queen Victoria.though
the Btory that she was present at
the linisli BeemB to be un apocryphal one.
Thus the challenge cup left our
shores, and in spite of the strenuous efforts of British yachtsmen, it
has remained on the other Bide of
the Atlantic ever since. On the
following Juiy 8th the owners of
the America presented the cup to
the New York Yacht Club as a perpetual challenge cup, and the principal clubs of the world received
prompt notice of its existence as an
international trophy. It was not,
however, until 12 years later that
any serious effort was made to recapture it

Notice It?
Last year when siphons weren't so cheep
All thought them worth their price;
But now that they have been reduced
They think it awfully nice.
Last year they were three fifty,
But now they're only two;
And I am sure if you're in style
That they will just su;t you.
At Goodeve's buy some Sparklets,
Even their price is much less;
And then you'll have your soda
