Host Select Parlors in Town.    J. E. Smith,    Roberts Street
Nanaimo hns milled another to thu
list of her celebrations. Her great
lay is over, atiii, from every point
if view, It ivns an unequivocal success. The first and must important
factor nn Monday, as 111 every other
public holiday, wos the weather.
The hearts of . thu committees must
have- been pretty near their months
on Sunday for the outlook wns in
all conscience ominous. However the
nigrrtr-wrought n change lu tho heavens, although there wus still flying
cloudB and throatenings of rain. Indeed, thoro wore a few thin showers
and that so late as twelve o'clock,
but after that hour tho weather
grew brighter us tlie day w-oro on.
Fortune wreathed hoi'solf in her rosiest hue and tho 1008 Celebration
was an assured success.
The town hus often looked more
crowded in a morning, especially
when there were children's sports on
tho Green. But tho Cricket Field
has novor been bettor patronized than
It was In tho afternoon, and the
crowd along the water front in tho
evening was something to be remembered, Nunaimo has on unrivallod
place for hor aquatic sports.    Thoro
not only a famous stretch of wator, but tlie bank itself forms a natural grandstand, from which it is
easy to follow tho courso of ovory
event on the water;
Hero was tho groat sport of tho
duy winding up with a magnificent
display of fireworks. There was sonic
disappointment expressed at tlio quality of tho sports on tho Cricket
Grounds, mul there is no doubt that
time lagged and excitement was conspicuously absent. Ilut this was not
tho Committee's fuiilt. It is impossible to change a carefully arranged
programme at a day's notlco, tho
more particularly if it happens lo bo
tho piece do insistence for which a
substitute lias to bo found. Tho committee hit upon a happy idea and a
good scheme if only it had boon properly carried out. Thoro is no ond
of amusement to masquerade football In good hands, and if only tho
masked bouutles had tried to piny
tho game in en most for ton minutes
thero would havu been no ond of a
laugh coming. Howovor, tho committee did its btst, the boys woro
out to please, and if it lucked the
florco excitement which a meeting bo
tween the rival teams .always produces, tho exhibition was nt least
always amusing.
Thero was no kick coming at tho
regatta anil tho grand flnolo on the
water -wus tlio best over. Fireworks
uro a popular institution, and of all
the crowd from hero linrdly a linker's dozen left without seeing tho
Illuminations, They were nil more
than satisfied with what they saw
■And so in general satisfaction ended
tho great day. Splendid weather,
splendid crowds, n splendid programme splendidly carried through.
Such is the brief opitomo of the
day's proceedings.
Tho only ovonts In which Lady
smith took part was tho trap shoot
Ing. In this sport. Geo. Hepple
took the first prizo for tho highest
aggregate and T. White tied with 0
Trnwford for second place. Howovor
the local men did not do so well In
the team shoot, although, taking
tho day right through thoy more
than held their own.
Tho following account of tho various ovonts, Is taken from the Freo
Press :
A good deal of it, in fact, all of
It, in yesterday's celobratlon, depends on the point of .view,
A big husky man, a single man
who paid 25 cents at the gate at
tiio cricket grounds to seo u masquerade footbnli match, of wldcli
moro mention will follow, came out
before tho so-called game wns over,
and "booted strong and loud." Ho did
not like being held up for 25 cents
for such an exhibition and ho said
so. In the morning ho didn't liko
tho parade- he had seen somothlng
hotter iu Liverpool or some other
place, whero they spent $25,000 for
pageant parado, or somothlng of
that sort, The Indian races wero
good. Who cared to seo a lot
of Indians pnddlo a canoe, anyway? And tho fireworks wero rotten.     Altogether,    the whole 	
shooting match was tho rottonest
thing he had ovor seen, and tho
Celebration Committee nothing but
highway robbers.
Tho aforosald whole   shooting match cost him 25 cents, and
aftor having delivered himself of his
sentiments he walked Into a bar,
laid down SI.(15 nnd ginned up the
admiring crowd who listened to his
pictures jiie roast,
Au old lndy wont to bed Inst niglil

had had a splondid time. She had
not been down town for over so
tong, and it wus Just a year ago
whon s'io had seen so many pcoplo.
Why everybody she know was out
at the crlckot grounds, ' All tho
young folks woro thero, nnd there
was Simon John going with Saman-
(ha Ann now, Mrs. Jones wns thero

How line no looked tin.i nun all the
girls turned round tu ..iok at him.
Ho wus just the lines, boy. How
she told him ull tho Kanainto news,
who wero married, who wus going
with this and that girl, how tho
town had a roller skating rink
now, two thoatros going overy evening, a great football team, a hurdy
gurdy slide, and all tho rest of lt.
Why it was just the finest day sho
over had and to-morrow, the next
and tho noxt day, sho will tell her
many neighbors all about John, the
fine job he has in Vi-jDcouverj now,
the nice girl he is going withi that
ho told her all aboulj. and hpw everybody was glad to ooe her John
when ho came over cn the "24th."
She had a good time, so it all depends on how   you look ut things.
Tho pnpa.-- of five honlfhy young Nannimo. kids—tlio real article— wos
awakened at five o'clock yesterday
morning by the youngstere, who had
slopt with their pants on all-night,
for four thoy would waken up late,
and miss some of tho fun. The kiddies made so much noiso that papa
couldn't sleep, and long beforo the
parade started in the .morning, tlie
kids, with ma and pa' In tow, were
down Commercial stroot. Ma and
pa smiled tolerantly at the pnrudo—
tho kiddles wcre all excitement, and
with ma and pa still in grip saw
the purade from four places along
the line of march. Jerry Sullivan
and his dog wero just too' funny for
anything thoy thought.' The wholo
family hustled home. 'The kids got
so excited they wero afraid that they
would miss'the funny football game;
tht. ,-uc -ma all In a flurry. How-
over thoy got dinner, and fully nn
hour beforo the match, were at the
grounds. Ma and pa didn't seo anything partlculnrly funny" about tho
football matoh, nolther did tho kiddles, hut still thoy would have cried
all day If they hnd not seen it.
Then another rush for tea and oil
to soo tlio regntto, which was simply grout, followed by the fireworks,
which also plonsod thom. Nothing
would do then but thev should havo
n ride on Baxter's slide, buy five
rents worth of peanuts nnd soo two
mo,ing picture shows. Flnalty the
family got home. Tho kids fell
asleep before pa and ma could got
them undressed. Thc latter hadn't
had timo nil day to think whether
Ihey were having a good time
not. Well, the kids seemed happy
anyway, nnd Ihon before they know
lt thoy wcro so dead tlroil that
they fell asleep too.
That's about tho way the day
wont all through. Tlioro wore no-
parados of tho Unltod States fleet,
no 55,000 fireworks, no ton thousand men in parade, no balloon ascension, no a wholo lot of other-
things, but the weather was lino, everybody saw everybody's friends, and
how tliey wero dressed, a few of the
ovcryl oillis hud a quiet drink with
a fow other ovorybodlos, the whole
town had an outing, for which appetites will bo keener the next day or
so, and while in some waystho celebration was a grout disappointment, an unavoidable one, yot everything passed off about tho samo
wny mnny anothor celebration did,
of tho samo kind throughout tho
longth und bremlth of the broad Dominion yesterday.
AN  EXPLANATION.
Tho miiaquorude fuotbull match
was not a very attractive drawing
card. In connection with that affair howovor, some explanation is
noccssary. Hud the l.adysiiiith foot
ball teum taken purt in the celebration as advertised thore is no question but what the afternoon at the
rlcket grounds would have been well
spent "by ovcrybody watching an ox-
i-iting match. However, through a
combination of circumstances that lt
is licit necessary to detail hero, for
everyone in the town is familiar
with thom, tho Ladysinith team at
the last moment had to give up the
idea of coming, lt was up to the
committee then to do1 something.
Efforts were made to bring over a
Vancouver or Victoria toam, but
they were unsuccessful. No other
attraction could ba secured, and finally it waa a caso on Friday night
of getting up something on the
spur of the moment o'r call the entire celebration off, because monoy
has to be raised in aome way to
pay for Indian races, lire works and
parade prizes. The masquerade loot
ball match, the snme thing that
waa   held    In Vancouver yesterday,
the disappointing result above mentioned. However the football boys
did the best they could on such a
short notice and under thc circumstances, the goto was large— about
$050—the weather fine, and even if
the football was hot enjoyed, everybody had a fairly good time renewing old acquaintances at' the
grounds, and all knowing how things
were, no ono raised much complaint,
Ladysmith people turned out large
ly as usual to patronize Nnnalmo
I'or tho day. The Ladysmith people
the majority of them, regrcitod as
much as Naiitiimoites did, the fact
that Choir toam was not to oo' hero.
However thoy did the next best
thing they could. They came to
town nnd endured tlio session at tho
cricket grounds with fortitude. Nanaimo. people should boar this in
mind nnd patronize Ladysmith on
the 1st of July. Tho Jonn did not
bring as large a crowd as usual ow-
Ingto the counter nttraetlons of the
fleet at Seattle, many who usually
patronise Nnnalmo on the 24th going there instead,
THE PARADE.
The parade in the morning was
quite entertaining, there being a
larger number uf entries than last
year. Spencer's entered a well-
gotten up float in the industrial parade, which woll merited lirst prize.
The Hospital float idea was also a
good cue, and though hardly an industrial entry, certainly deserved a
prize, and was given second place a-
mong the industrial floats. Tho idea
of the big Merry Widow Hat, entered by tho Elite millinery store whs
vory good one.
in tho five people comic float, the
German band of course captured first
prize. The characters were well
gotten up and woll sustained. They
helped enliven the day*s proceedings
throughout the dny.
The "Coal Diggers" from Brechin
secured second prize running the German band closely, Tho coal diggers
exhibit "Just from Brechin" was
all right.
In the comic float, two characters,
the Farmer's automobile was a
screaming success, with a horse
pushing tho rig. There was no
question about it securing the prize.
Thc Inst white man on Vancouver
Island, enptured at Quallcum, taken
from tho Province's famous cartoon,
deserved and    secured second prize.
fn the comic one-charactor— that
rare old Irish humorist. Jerry Sulll
van, got first prlzo. No parado Is
complete In Nanaimo without Jerry.
"Driven from Home." "The Old
Man." "The Coons." ami other -entries, although not taking prizes.
are all deserving of speclnl mention.
THE REGATTA.
The great feature of the day were
the Indian races, lt Is a pity that
uot enough money wus subscribed
every year to enable the Celebration
Committee to give a complete afternoon's rogutta on tho beautiful
stretch of water in front of the
court house without having to bother with a gate ut tho crlckot field.
The fireworks fulfilled thoir. purpose, thut of amusing tho little oues.
They wero perhaps not as lavish as
somo expected, hut, considering that
it takes $500 to lire (MI only ono
ot' the small guns of a warship, it
is readily understood that not much
of n flro works display can be purchased fur $1150, During the pro-
gross of the regatta Dick Sklrvlng,
who had boen engaged lor tbo ovent,
created soma excitement by leaping
olf tho top of Johnston's wharf
huililiii" twico into tho wator with'
nil liis clothes on. As mnny thought
Dick was doing his best to commit
suicide, ho created moro than tho
usual interest.
Taking the whole, day, whilo It
cannot be said to bo a howling success, nt least everybody got a quarter's worth of bin, lots of monoy
was left In lho city, nnd several hun-
droduld Nun liniiiti-s hud tho pleas-
ro of shaking hands with their old
frionds, who were glad to soo them.
Honest, now, didn't you have . a
cood time yesterday, everything considered?

THREE MEN OUT
OF A BOAT
Exciting Incident    on the Bay    oa
Monday,
Thore were a few who preferred to
picnic across the bi*v on Monday to
the attractions either of Nanaimo or
.Victoria and the American fleet.
Threo of these select few had cold
and watery reasons to regret their
choice and came perilously near finding: a  watery grave.
The cause of the accident, aa in
the majority of these sea tragedies,
was as much carelessness as anything else. Win, wealth and wisdom set out to cress 'the bay in a
sail boat, wit in tho bow, wisdom
on the thwarts, and wealth at One
helm. And not ull their wit, nor
all their wisdom, nor all their
wealth could make that to go. So,
being too lazy to work, they lay to,
waiting for a tow. What thay did
not bargain for was the undertow.
The launch came along with another bont in tow. The three In the
boat threw a rope which a man on
tho launch caught and held. Their
boat swinging around, the other
boat crashed Into lt, and overladen
as It was, over lt wont.' Then Ior
two minutes there wns more than
enough excitement.
and
Council   Confronted    With   Another

-• ■       Proposals.
Tho ninotecnth meeting of the Oity
Council wus held in thc city hall on
Tuesday evening. Mayor Nicholson
presided and there were present .Aldermen Campbell, Haworth, Roberts,
itrown and Matheson.
A letter was -received from the B.
C. Anti-Tuberculosis Society thank-
' ing the Council for its donation of
'$50.
A letter from a Vancouver lirm
tduching thc proposed electric plant
wus ordered filed.
A communication was rend from
Mr. E. Mohun dealing with the city
survoy from Fourth to Sixth avenues. Mr. Mohun expressed tho opinion that that port of the city had
never been surveyed, and tho cost of
doing so would all depend upon the
nature ol tho ground to be covered.
Ho himsell had ceased to do o.utside
work.
A letter was also road from Mr.
Harvey In' which ho stated that his
survoy only extondod to Fourth avenue.
Aldermen Haworth and Matheson

FOREST, May 19.—Tho tragedy
which curried off Montague A. Smith
the private banker of Forest, Liberal candidate in East Lamb-ton' was
the result of forcing a man into a
position unsuited to his temperament. For sixteen years he had occupied tho some seat at tbo table of
tho Franklin Houso, ond come and
gono between his rooms, with littio
to disturb his daily routine of successful business life. Wealth camo
to him easily, and accumulated near
the hundred thousund mark. At
times ho took trips to England-and
the continent, at other times ho
went on fishing and shooting trips
with friends.
Many positions ho filled with acceptance in connection with local
institutions. Ho was treasurer of
the fair, chairman of the band, president of tlie l.iboral Association for
tho riding, but had novel- boon a candidate for any municipal or other,
position, He acted on tho Ontario
Came Commission ln Hon. Frank
Latchfoid's timo for two years. Ho
was frequently spoken of tor parliamentary honors, but never consented
to run until in February the Liboral
nominoo, II. J, Pettyplece, announced his retirement from tho Hold for
business reasons, end Mr. Smith was
Induced to take tho. nomination.
He wos easily discouraged with tho
work of canvassing, and took the
discouragements so Borlously thai
his friends at the table, Mr. Maylor,
manager of tho canning company,
and- cithers, noticod tho loss of his
usual good spirits.
Ho sut In tho olflco of the Forest
Freo Press for three hours discuss-
in" the campaign the night boforo,
nnd preparing for a series of meetings to commence ln tho morning
with n twonty-mllo drlvo to Eu-
Ihomta township, followed by three
successive meetings nt rural points.
Dr. Chas. Fairbanks, of Petroloa,
was to have met Pottypiece and Mr.
Smith en route. In the morning ho
went to the bank and shot himself.
The contents of the letter ho loft bo-
hind are known to several, and contain references to his intended act,
which would be distressing to his
frionds to publish.
H. J. Pettypiece stntes that it
briefly alluded to the comments that
might he made by tho public as to
possible financial difficulties of which
thore were none.
Continuing tho lottor dealt with
the election campaign, with which ho
was not satisfied, and snid that ho
could stand tho strain of It noloug-
er. In conversation with a press
representative, tho bank manager
said his chief did not find fault with
any person, nor shrink from tho outcome, but found himself unsuited to
the lnbor upon which he had "entered.

AMERICAN WOMEN TRY TO KILL
SULTAN.
•Mors Then 100 Persons Afe in Prison as    Result of   Discovery of
Plot to Assassinate Sultan.
CONSTANTINOPLE, May 28. —
Two American women are thought
to have figured In a proposed plot
to assassinate the Sultan of Turkey,
capture his throne and establish a
parliamentary government here.
"Miss Mary Jameson," who speaks
English fluently, and who says she
is an American, is under arrest with
four other women, one of whom
also claims the United states as her
native land. All told almost 100
prisoners, mostly Armenians and
Turks, are In prison, charged with
participating in a plot to blow up
Yildiz Kiosu and other institutions.
It is said that the bombs with
which they -wore armed cost $200
apiece.
There is much mystery surrounding
"Miss Jameson." Though sho claims
to be a naturalized American citizen, American Minister Leischman
has not appeared in her behalf.

HOW MEN JTiUDGE WOMEN.
Men Judge other womon by thoir
own wives. What kind of a wife are
you?
We all know the man who peevishly asserts that every daughter of
Eve is a. shrew—when out of his
wife's hearing—and we aro not a bit
surprised when the woman noxt door
tells ua that Mrs. Blank makes
Blank's Ule a burden to him with
her shrewish tongue.
For how would Blank have reached
his never to-be-shaken conclusion on
woman's temper unless he had been
well drilled at home?
And when our bachelor brother
gravely quotes, "Inconstancy, thy
name Is woman I" Re put down the
family album and inquire solicitously, "Stung?"
Man is a transparent creature in a
clever woman's hands. He does not
realize it, but ehe can trace his
whole romaKti. history by his various theories about woman.
And consistent! It is really wonderful how consistent a man can be
when he begins to talk about women.
In one and the same breath he
will tell you that ho simply hates
a learned woman and praises to the
skies Prof. Madlo's wife because she
helps him to his work.
He condemns extravagance in dress
and passes the bost drossed woman
in the neighborhood ea a model.
He tells family secrets without realizing they are secrets. And that
is why ao many women wear an
anxious look while presumably en-
Joying themselves in society.

FORTUNE I SMADE BY CRIME
Mrs. Belle Guineas Believed to Have
Accumulated $56,900 by Alleged Carnival of Crime.
LAPORTE, Ind., May 3S.-In her
alleged campaign of murder Mrs.
I'elle Guiness is aald to have carried
very profitable "business,"
which, according to ths latest figures
obtainable," netted her $55,900. A
tabulation which follows showed how
she obtained sums of money from
these victims:
M. Sorenson, first husband, life insurance amounting to $8,000.
Peter Guiness, second husband, life
Insurance $4,000.
Charles Erdman,   Newcastle, Ind.,
$6,000.
Herman Konitzer, La Sails avenue,
Chicago, $5,000.
Ole Budsperg, low. Wis., $2,000.
John O. Moe, Elbow Lake, Minn.,
$1,600.
Geo. Berry, Tuscola, 111,, $1,500.
Henry Gtrfaalt, lola, Wis., $1,000.
From   fire    Insurance on Guineas
home ia Chicago, $8,600.
In addition to these sums, Mrs.
Gulnees Is supposed to have received
¥1,000 each from four, other
whose bodies were found on the
"murder" (arm, end $1,000
from the fifteen men with whom the
woman had been corresponding. This
makes a grand total of $64,900,
which Mrs. Guiness ls supposed to
have received.    The authorities have
failed so far to learn what ths  Wo-    •And mbm a few men gather toge-i a

to believe the young man's story,
and he was locked up while tho
search lor evidenco and motives proceeded.
Tbe physicians who conducted the
post-mortem invesfl.Ti-.tion diBcovor-
ed, as they afterwurd testified, unmistakable evidenco that the girl
had been criminally assaulted preceding the shot which ended her life.
This was not the only motive lor
ending tho girl's life. Lilllo Davis
was tho only eye witness to tho killing of hor brother, Irby Davis, who
was shot to doath, it is alleged, by
Roy Hale, a younger brother of Ack
Hale, a few months before her own
death. Upon her ovidenco might
have depended the fate of Roy Hale,
and from this standpoint hcr removal may have beon looked upon aa
one of the essentials to tho safety
of Roy Hale.
Ack Hale, too, was about to leave
for the west, and, had purchased
ticket for Colorado. Ho came horo
before starting on his intonded Journey, apparently for no other purpose than to meot tho Davis girl.
So far as is known, Lillle Davis
hadno motive ior taking hor own
life. She was to havo become tho
brido of John E. McRoberts, of
Wise County, Va., only a few days
later than tho dato of hor death.
