The oarnival opened for ito third

early in the morning. Most of the

Tha Baaaball Match
The baseball matoh yesterday
afternoon between RoBBland and
Northport left very muoh to be
desired. The play of neither team
was particularly excellent and the
errors on both sides were numerous.
Northport won by 11 runs to four,
but if Colville this  afternoon  oan
put  up  anything  like  a decent
game they ought to win.    There
wae an awful amount of chin wagging, more ohin wagging than play
in faot, and the dragging- of  the
game   was    wearisome.    But   if
Rossland players will not  praotioe
they may expect to  get  it where
they deserve it—in the neok.
Tha LacrosM Match.
There was a very good gate to
witness the laorosse matoh between
Viotoria and Nelson, but the issue
of tbe game was never for a moment in doubt, the better team easily
won and Nelson scored a viotory
of 11 games to none.   Viotoria had
too large a contempt  for the  up
country players and only four of
their   regular   team were present
aided by Campbell of Vanoouver,
perhaps the best player the  field.
But one player cannot make a team
and the Victorias not only laoked
in generalship but the taoitice of
the home defenoe  were  deporable
leaving their cover  unchecked in
a manner which waB heavily  punished.   The play of the men, too,
was inferior,  many a  pass being
missed.   On the  other  hand,  although the game  is  perhaps one
oi the roughest that is played, the
Viotoria   played   a  olean  game
throughout.    Nelson has a great
future before it aB a laorosse team
and may be expected in a season
or bo, if they  keep  together,  of
rivalling the prowess  of   the  best
coast teams.   But their rough system of play must  be  eliminated.
More than one player was put  on
the fence for  foul play  and the
oaptain of the team   should  warn
all suoh men, no matter   how   individually  good  as  players that
such condnot must cease in the in
terests of the team.   The  day   for
that is past and Buoh tactics lead,
against a good team and  with  a
strict referee, to inevitable defeat.
The Tuq> of War
Four teams entered yesterday for
the tugs of war.   There were two
teams from the Roesland Kootenay
the Nickel Plate and tbe Columbia
Kootenay—the Le Roi and a team
from the Boundary.   The Boundary team was defeated by tbe men
of the Columbia Kootenay and the
Nickel  Plate team, after a hard
struggle, ohronicled in the Woiti.n
yesterday,  by  the Le  Roi.   The
final matoh was pulled at 6 o'olock
in the evening before the Hoffman
House between the Le Roi and the
eastern end of the Rossland Kootenay Mines, the Columbia Kootenay.
After an exciting struggle of 17
minutes the Kootenay men again
won out.
Tha Play.
The play last night was muoh
smoother than on the night before
and it was a pity it did not command a better honss.   There were
no new  specialties,  which  went
muoh as before with the exception
of the Queen of Hearts. Miss Irene
Lewis, gaining" confidence, danced
very well indeed.    Owing to Miss
Crowley's cold, evident on Tuesday
evening, growing worse, her songs
were perforce cut out and a domt
ciliary visit from Mayor Dean out
out the topical song whioh created
such a furore on the first evening
of the play.   It is deolared that the
Mayor, wrath  at  the  manner in
whioh he, duly eleoted  mayor of
this burg, had been held up to ridicule, fulminated threats ef taking
away the lioenoe .of the author oi
the offending verses, reputed to be
the manager of the Clarendon. He
regarded the whole song as a personal insult.
The offending verses are:—
"A smart Spokane detective came
to town tbe other day,
(We've seen detectives just like
before).
We've no smart men in Rossland,
so the mayor sent away,
(We've known  the  mayor  do
smart tricks like that before).
This grafter  in  the witness box
swore that he was no 'tec,
(We've known detectives swear like
that before).
And now the oity finds that it has
got it in the neck,
(We've known the  city get it
there before).
Whilst Dean is mayor of the
town,
We're sure to get done brown,
It's really very shocking
And the faot we must deplore;
But it can't be helped, alas!
When the mayor's   green as
grass.
But he'll meet the fate of dozens
Who have gone before.
We've got a oity oouncil, you perhaps would like to know
(We've had some oity councils
here before)
But this 'un's superiluouB,the mayor's the whole show
(We've never had a mayor like
him before)
That he's out down all sal'ries except his own is true,
(Wa've heard of outs like that
beforo,)
It's strange he pays them anything
they've nothing left to do
(We've heard of people getting
left before,)
Chorus.   Whilst Dean, etc.
In the World's opinion the author of the doggerel ought to be
secluded for a period in the shadow
of the pines to learn better. Had
the mayor risen    to a   point of
condemnation of the reprehensible
Qrub street inkelinger for his scurrilous and dishonest attack he
doubtless would have found a seconder. However, one cannot always see the right path.
Tho Wrestling Matoh
The wrestling matoh at the Inter
national commenced strictly upon
time at 10 o'clock, and the bout
between the two athletes, George
Gefford of this city and Harry Stevens of Butte, two Bplendid specimens of  manhood,   lasted for an
hour   and   a half.    The    victor
of  the  best    three   falls  out of
five was George Gefford who was
backed at 3 to 2.    Both were Cor-
nishmen and both played an absolutely square game, olean throughout.   Harry Stevens was the heavier man by about 15 pounds and
was extremely aotive, but the great
strength  lay with  Gefford.   The
first fall was scored by Gefford and
so on alternately.   When the men
oame up for their final fall both
flew at eaoh other and  the lithe
turnings, the aotive motions, the
heaving chests and corded musoles
were a revelation to the breathless
spectators.   After one or two unsuccessful attempts (George throwing his opponent twioe heavily on
his head and neok,)  Gefford was
seen to be firmly held by hie opponent.   Despite  the hold, Gefford
slowly straightened himself, lifting
his bulkier antagonist clean off his
feet and drawing him through his
hold, dropped him fairly on his
baok amid the plaudits of the spectators.  It waB the cleanest and the
best  athletic  encounter ever witnessed in this city.
Tha Fireworks
There was a fireworks display
npon Monte Christo in the evening
whioh attraoted quite a number of
spectators during the evening. A
bonfire lent some additional attractions to the scene. Numerous rockets of a varied nature were successfully Bent up.
Boxing  Content.
There will be a bexing contest
this evening at tie International
under the patronage of the Carnival
Committee between Queenan and
Mullins for tea rounds. No decision is to be given unless a knockout is scored. Friends of Queenan
are confident that he can do the
triok, but those who have witnessed
the activity and the toughness of
Mullins are extremely doubtful of
the former's ability to aooomplish
any such feat.

JOURNALISM.
The Portland Telegram, referr
ing to Pulitzer's gigantic scheme of
a school of journalism, pronounces
judgment when it says epigramatic-
ally that the school may teach
journalism, but oannot make journalists. Like most epigrams the
saying, after all, is but half the
truth. Journalist! oannot be
made at school no more than
mine managers at college. There
must be praotioal experience. But
this does not mean that a mine
manager would not be much the
better man if he built his experience upon a solid substratum of a
college course. Similarly no amount
ol knowledge of law would make a
good barrister, but he would be a
poor barrister indeed if be had no
knowledge of law, or only that
which he picked up in the courts.
The truth of the case is that
there is no calling in life which demands a wider foundation than
journalism. It is true that a "nose
for news" will serve a youngster
better than a good education. But
that "nose for news" cannot take
the beginner very far.
This has been seen long ago in
Europe, especially France, where
a journalist is as often as not a
brilliant man of letters. A university training is not essential to
journalism, but it is a wonderful
help. In the oities of the east a
journalist finds it hard to break
into the newspapers as a youngster,
unless he has some such educational cachet. A journalist can far
more easily do without a knowledge
of shorthand than without a
knowledge of letters. It follows,
therefore, that Pulitzer iB right
enough in endeavoring to remove
the stigma of bald English of ridiculous affectation of rigidity, of
grammar and construction, lying
upon the papers of his oountry.
But it is doubtful whether that
stigma oannot be removed by demanding a higher educational
standard in aspirants to journalism
than by establishing a college
whioh really can teach nothing.
For any capable editor can tell on
a very short trial of an ordinarily
well educated applicant whether he
has the requisite newspaper faoulty
of being able to seize the salient
points of that whioh passes before
his eyes or not. The ability of so
writing it up as to please the public palate is mainly a matter of education supplemented by praotioe
and local knowledge.

Vancouver, Aug. 2G.—A plat
form for the British Columbia!Lib
eral party has been constructed by
the Executive committee in session
here during the past few days, and
upon this platform, issued as a
manifesto and acoompanied by
an address to the electors, the party
will go to the country at the gen
eral election on October 31. Naturally, only imperative changes
have been made in the platform
of two years ago, the added planks
being designed chiefly to meet new
conditions that have arisen in the
interim.
After quoting the former platform
and reaffirming the principles it
embodies, the Liberal party adds a
plank for reform in the civil service and tbe system of appointment
to publio offices, disclosure of gross
abuses and injustices in the Bervice
at Victoria having shown suoh
reforms to be imperative. Another
new plank favors the building of
numerous trails and trunk roads,
chiefly in outlaying sections of
oountry. A third plank declares
for the introduction of a comprehensive system of irrigation for the
beneGt of farming lands in the interior, the fruit seotion of the
Okanagan, and and the unwatered
areas of the Fraser Valley being
particularly referred to. A fourth
plank emphasises the necessity of
of a coast to Kootenay short line,
and a fifth strongly denounces
the two per cent tax on the mineral
output. Two other planks favor
publio works of varying importance. The administration of the
southeast Kootenay coal and oil
lands saved by the legislature from
improper transfer to the C. P. R. is
not dealt with, being regarded as a
matter of administration rather
than political prinoiple. Nor is
referenoe made, as many had ex-
peoted would be the case, to the
desirability of remodelling the
educational plan. No mention is
made in the platform of the timber
question, although it was discussed
at length, and several trial planks
were offered. Individually members of the exeoutive expressed an
opinion coinciding with the contention made by the loggers some time
ago, namely, that a tax should be
oharged on the output of logs and
a [rebate on timber manufactured
in the Province.
There are no startling features in
the main address of Provincial
Liberals. The name of Joseph
Martin, former Liberal leader, is
not even mentioned in the address
which is signed by Stuart Henderson, as President, and T. S. Baxter,
Secretary of the Provincial Association. In regard to the leadership
the plan outlined is that four members of the Executive Bhall call together the elected Liberals of the
House after the election, and that
these members of the new Legislature shall choose a leader. Stuart
Henderson, T. S. Baxter, J. A.
Macdonald, head of the Kootenay
Liberals, and Wm. Sloan, organizer
on Vancouver Island, will issue the

LANCASTER
BANQUET
Given to Provincial Mining
Association.
WEEKS WORK OF EXECUTIVE
Two Important Acts of Business Have
Been Transacted at the
Meetings.
Tbe Provincial Mining Association finished its labors last night
and were entertained in the evening by a banquet at the Lancaster
whioh was well attended and the
occasion passed pleasantly and profitably in tbe hearing of speeches
•nd songs.
The ohief work of the Association
in its exeoutive session here was the
drafting of a letter to eaoh and
every candidate for politioal honors
daring the coming eleotion, asking
him to endorse the following aims
ol the Association, passed in the
general assembly at Viotoria early
in the spring.
1.—Repeal of two per oent. tax.
2.—Extension of time to lapsing
free miners' licences.
3.—No royalty on timber on mining olaims for mining purposes.
4.—Mineral crown grants to be
reduoed from $25 to S10.
5.—To amend the Boiler Inspection Aot.
6.—Crown grants for plaoer
claims.
7.—A conciliation aot for labor
troubles.
8.—Consolidation and simplification of the mining laws.
9.—Opening of Indian reserves
for mining purposes.
The seoond important aotion was
a motion by S. S. Taylor that
the eoal lands in the East Kootenay
district be let to bona fide workers
under lease, but that present claimants should get the full benefit ef
the law as it at present stood. This
resolution was evidently stolen by
Mr. Taylor from the Liberal manifesto.
Besides this work there were several other matters dealt with, especially the Water Clauses Aot
suggestions as to the amendment oi
whiob are asked from the local organizations. In this connection a
motion was made at the instance of
A. C. Gait, declaring that the water
rights on orown granted properties,
acquitted under the Mineral Act,
should not be forfeited if the min*
er's lioense had expired. As this
motion somewhat interferes with
the WaterJClauses Aot suggestions,
above alluded to, it is likely that it
will not obtain ultimate endorsement until suoh time as the whole
body takes definite action in this
important matter.

Did You
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
Without a bit of mess.
So buy one ard be ready,
And when a friend drops in
He'll softly say "my, that is good,
Where did you get it Jimf"
Come and see our  new
and perfect Siphons at
Goodeve Bros.
Druggists and Stationers.
DON'T   DELAY!
When you get It at Goodeve's it's good
