MUSIC FOR
THE REGATTA
Tlio Ladysmith City Band gave a
line programme of Music at tho
Band Stand on Saturday. The night
was ideal fur an outdoor concert,
hut there was not the usual number
of people round the handstand. This
was no doubt duo to tho fact of it
being pay Saturday night and not
in uny senso attributable to any
want of i upt'ocltttlon of the band,
indeed, th band is playing bettor
than ever .mil they hnvo got some
now selections which are really pretty. This idea af Saturday evening
concerts deserves all lhe encouragement it can bo given. The hand is
a self-supporting institution but is
never chary of giving its services to
any commendable cause in the city.
It is in fact truly a city hand, and
the people of the town may well
feel proud as woll of its past rocord
as of its general and all-round   pro-
,: flcioncy. These out-door concerts
will in all    probability continue   all
' summor and ought to ho better   at-
i tended than they are.
In the stretch of tho Hegatta programme vvhich appeared in a previous issue of the Standard, a new

It is expected that this discovery

large portion of It hns tho burning
proportion of anthracite. ^Oroat quantities of soml-blttiminous coal wore

This Is an Important factor In

OTTAWA, June 12.—Twenty-two British Columbia Indians inter- •
viewed the prims minister yesterday and presented a petition re' *
guiding grievances which they wanted redressed. They claimed •
thut they had not received all the lands allotted to them (or ln- *
ilinn reserves by'sir James Douglas, and they also asked (or the *
removal ol restrlctiuns on their hunting and Ushing. *
Sir Wilfrid replied that he would have their reports looked ln- •
to by the department. Subsequently Chief Capilano, the moving ■
spirit uf the delegation, called upon Mr. Fedley, deputy superinten- *
dent of Indian nlTuirs. in connection with this matter. He was *
usked by Mr. Pedley fur purticiilurs of tlie land which the Indians *
said had been taken from them, but the chiel was wholly unable to *
furnish uny»ovldence. Chief Capilano was informed tiiat nothing *
could be done by the government unless he was able to show where '
the land had been taken (rom them. *
They lo(t for the west last night without having soon tho gover- *

which he can get redressed, but he has hnd a pleasant trip which *
hns cost him and his friends a large sum. Tho Songhces vory pro- *

In connection with the story

just before going to press, that

on baud at present. It may
be presumed, however that the
company will follow thts up by
operations on a much larger
scale. Everything points that
way. It is needless to dwell

authorities are inclined to the belle!
that the Send who assaulted and

that he has sllppod through the police lines and got across the boundary. The search of the district a-

With a negro named Win. Banks
in custody, who wa* arrested under

was lett at New Westminster, Constable John Munroe, of the provincial police, came in from Cloverdule
thl* morning, and arrived In Vancouver thi* afternoon. Munroe, a-
long with Constable Wilkie, hud been
scouring th* country from Langlsy
Prairie to th* boundary line. Alter
having been out ail day yesterday,
the olnoers learned that a negro bad
loan seen at Port Kells washing his
clothes, and had since taken to the
woods. They caught the train lor
Vancouver and reached here at 10
o'oloek, getting the engineer to atop
at Fort Kells. The negro had been
rounded up by the section man, and
the millmen employed at the Walker
and Graham mill. The negro had
been driven from the wood* when the
section man and Mr. Graham and
hla millmen gave chase. The officers
brought their man down to Clover-
dale, where they stayed all night.
He wo* brought to Westminster this
liiorning. <g|
Bunks, whon arrested, denied that
he had been washing his clothes, and
protested that he bad only been
washing himself. Officer Munroe
told him he waa positive he had
seen hlm In Vancouver, but thla the
prisoner denied. He would give no
satisfactory account of how he came
to be at Port Kells, nor how the
goods found on him came to be In
Hia possession. It we* found that
he had been working for P, O. Dunne
on a ranch at Hnselmere.
One peculiar feature of the case is
that the victim's hat has not been
found, although a careful search has
been made aruui.d the spot where ihe
murder occurred. Th* daughter of

pounds of dynamite, saved tho Uvea
ol 200 men and the mine from total destruction. Dunn is tbe hero
of the camp today.
Dunn wus making his regular round
ol the workings shortly niter midnight, when he smelled smoke. Investigation showed the flro to be on
the 300-(oot level, where the powder
mugazlne is located. He rushed to
the magazine and, unaided, fought
the flames which wore already gnawing nt the wooden cases In which
the dynamite was packed.
There were 25 cas?s, each containing lllty pounds of dynamite, ln the
magazine at the time, and an explosion would have resulted in the
Complete destruction of the entire
mine. Dunn broke a water pipe,
and within a fow moments had
flooded the magazine and all danger was past. Then he continued
his round uf inspection. The miners
did not discover their narrow escape
from death and the heroism ol their
boss until the shifts wcro changed
later.
The flre originated by the crossing
of two electric wires connected with
heaters on the 300-foot level. The
