All the Kootenays.
Splendid Athletic Programme for two Gala
Days-Many Handsome Prizes to
Be Contested For.
Trades Procession of Decorated Floats by
Day-Brilliant Water Carnival by
Night���Lake Front Ablaze,
From present Indications Nelson'al
big Land and Water Carnival next!
Monday anil Tuesday, July 2 and S,
will be attended by the largest gathering of people ever assembled in one
town in the interior of British Columbia. From all towns In the Kootenays, with the exception of a few in
the Slocan, the citizens of which will
go to Slooan City, come reports that
almost the entire population is coming
to Nelson, the majority of tlie people
to spend both Monday and Tuesday.
The Boundary is going to do better
than was at first expected. After the
big demonstration at Greenwood on
Friday aud Saturday a special train
on Sunday will carry hundreds nut of
the several towns there so that they
may arrive in Nelson on Monday
morning in time to witness all of the
events here.
Arrangements  for  the   celebration
are now all completed and during the
remaining days of this   week the city
and lake fronts  will  begin   to attain
a   gala    appearance.      The    several
hundred   dollars to  be   expended   on
the   streets and  on tlie   lake will be
used to the best advantage.   The plans
for   the   water  decorations   have   already   been  given to  tlie publio.   It
is sufficient to say here, that Kootenay
Lake will never have  been  attired so
beautifully as it   will be on   Tuesday
night   next.      Hundreds   of   Chinese
lanterns, fireworks, searchlights, etc.,
will add to the scene   made beautiful |
already   with   the   many    decorated
boats.    Of this portion   of
bratiou   the   following   is

the display will   be more pretentious.
Tbe  citizens   ot  Nelson,   recognizing
bow delightfully their beautiful lake
lends   itself  to  an   exhibition of this
kind, aro taking a greater interest in
the event and no pains or expense will

boats aud canoes will  be transformed
into  masses  of    scintillating  colored
lights,   large   passenger    nnd  freight
steamers wilh  their wonderful search
lights will bring the mountains in the
distance, the  rippling waters up and
down   the lake and  the snow-capped
peaks in all directions into plain view
of everyone, and all the while bands of
music will be playing, and for the time
the splendors ot Venice will be reproduced.   The mountains will send baok
the echoes of the applause of the thousands who will view the Bcene and Nelaon will have been repaid for the time,
the trouble and the expense.   It will be
the last scene in Ihe two days' celebration and will live in the memory of everyone wbo sees it until  it  Bhall have
been effaced  by something grander a
twelveiiiinil.il hence.

8200 from tho Nelsou celebration,
which amount will be handed to the
Vauoouver Rowing Club to defray the
expensea of the club's four, which will
take part in the four-omul race on Dominion Day. The Vancouver men will

Tbe committee in charge of the boat

that the preliminary beats will be rowed off on Saturday next, oommenoing
at3:80 p.m., when llynlup's crew will
row against Winter'sorew. As soon as
that heat is decided Matthews' crew will
row against Procter's. Tbe winners ot
theae two heats will hold over until
Monday for the mini -Hinds. On Monday
tbe semi-finals will begin at 2 p.m , when

slop vi, Winter will row against Beer' a
orew, known aa the Rifle Corps crew.
Following this will be a heat between
the winner of the Matthews vs. Procter
heat against tbe Hudson's Ray crew,
stroked by McLeod.
When these heats have been deoided
there will be two orews left to compete
bands of the players and public. They
stopped at the Pacific Hotel while in
the city and on all sides made a good
impreBsion as the people of Spokane
considered them the finest lot of ball
players that over struck tlie town.
There ���were large crowds at both
Saturday's and Sunday's games, and
I particularly on Sunday did .the town
turn out en masse to see the Nelson
boys play, as the crowd present that
day was the biggest that has beeu at
the ball grounds this season. They
v; ire most courteous in their treatment of the Nelson team, as on Saturday the ".Spokane fans rooted for the
Nelson nine,'' to use the language of
one of tho local players. On Sunday
the crowd was seemingly impartial,
giving our boys as much applause as
they did their own team.
At the hands of tbeir opponents tbe
Nelson boys received the most courteous treatment, both on and off the
diamond. There was none of tbe 1111-
eeemingly wrangling aud kioking
that is usual at inter.oity gamea,
and the work of umpire Dodd, official
umpire of tho Spokane club, gave universal satisfaction in all bia decisions
in both gamea.
The grounds wero in  excellent  condition for new grounds and tbe Nelaon
bovs were  well   taken care of  during
the game.

The Minister brought these representations to the attention of Secretary
Hay, who consulted with the President. The In! lot's decision, as convoyed to the Minister, was that, while

D. J. BEATON,  Editor and  Manager
A committee of One Hundred in
New York City makes the lollowiiif*
appeal in behalf ol' the starving1 millions of India: " Famine from lack
of rain is now smiting sixty millions
of our fellow beings. At this moment death by sheer hunger and
thirst threatehs one-sixth of that
number. Thousands are Starving
each twenty-four hours. And the
woe has not reached its worst. Face
to face with even such horrors still
stand countless little children, arid
women, and men, whom food will
save. Thank God, relief may almost instantly pass, by cable, from
this land of plenty to that India of
starvation. Accordingly, only gifts
of money are solicited. What, then,
shall we do? What will you _o ?
In the famine districts are charitable relief agencies, efficient, trustworthy, economical. They need
larger supplies. Surely such supplies can be provided, and yet the
customary gifts to long-established
agencies for the up-lifting of the
people of India not be at all lessened. Meanwhile, the Government
of India has organised relief on a
scale unapproached in the history of
the world. The numbers of sufferers officially aided is not less than
six millions. Even that aid is
wholly insufficient lor the awful
need. The death rate is by far the
greatest in the Native Provinces,
where the Government has least
control. In this emergency, the
Committee of Oue Hundred gladly
puts itself at your service,'' at the
service of the cause. Kvery expressed wish of donors will be faithfully carried out, and the Committee, on its own part, will earnestly
seek the best existing agencies for
the distribution of undesignated
funds. Together and at once let us
move to the rescue. From two to
five cents a day will save a life."
We cannot believe that the good
citizens of Nelson are satisfied that
they have done their full share towards the relief of their unfortunate
fellow subjects. Perhaps this appeal, made by men, and to a people
who are bound by the ties of a common humanity, will rouse them to a
renewed sense of the need for further charity. No one would desire
to cast the least shadow on the
forthcoming celebration of our national anniversary, but if we can afford to spend three thousand dollars
in providing two days' diversion in
the pursuit of mere pleasure, we
should feel ourselves equal to the
duty of helping more than we have
in rescuing life in the famine-stricken districts ol India. In these two
days we shall expend money enough
to insure the safety of a thousand
lives, that may otherwise be sacrificed to this demon of Famine. We
are not called upon to forego our celebration, but if we can do this we
can do something more for the
starving in India. Mr. Kydd, of
the Merchants' Hank of Halifax, will
be glad to receive and acknowledge
further contributions.
for the return of a member it is not
intended that the election shall be
confined to a portion of the people
only, and it is the duty of the authorities to see that all shall be provided with the necessary facililities
for exercising their franchise. It
is not expected that staps will be
taken to have the election declared
void,but if the appeal were made the
Courts would have some difficulty
in refusing it.
A Governor Melnnes has been
dismissed, und a Mr, W.W, B. Melnnes has just been elected to the

Victoria Times, whose criticism ol

There will be widespread appreciation of Lord Salisbury's concern
that so many missionaries in China
should take such pains lo put themselves in the way of beinj^ killed.
These killings are not mere murder,
as some may suppose. In China
th�� work of missionaries is regarded as an instrument by which secular government may achieve its object. The Chinese are not so much
concerned by any religion that may
be taught as they are to keep
their country from falling into the
hands of strangers and aliens.

Great Britain Has Been Generous to Her
Military Heroes.
Whatever may be Baid of England's
treatment of the men who light her
battles in the ranks, it oannot be
charged that she has refused to reward
the successful commanders of her armies, says i he Chicago Chronicle. The
Duke of Marlborough, known also to
history es John Churchill, might he
celled a general of one battle���that of
Blenheim. But "it was a famous viotory, " the poet has told us, nnd for this
alone he received the royal manor of
Woodstock, upon whioh Queen Anne
subsequently erected tbe msgnifioent
Blenheim Palace. At tbe same time
the nation's gratitude was expressed in
the highly practical form ot a perpetual pension to himself and heirs forever
of the very respectable sum of ��4,000
per annum. In addition to these splendid gifts, says the Gem, the Huko
made some tolerably good pickings out
of his campaigns, as will readily be-admitted when it is stuted that bis widow,
tbe ambitious "Sarah," to whom he
bequeathed only part of hit fortune,
left behind her at her death the by no
means inconsiderable sum of ��3,000,-
0IX). The Marlborough "peipetual"
pension, it may be added, was actually
paid right up to the year 1881, when it
wss commuted for ��107,780. Up to
this date tbe English nation has paid
the Churchill fimiily the very respectable sum of ��7811,000. exclusive altogether of interest.
Although his monetary "pickings,"
being strictly legitimate, were of considerable less value than those of hia
illustrious predecessor, tbe Dnko of
Wellington bad nevertheless bnt little
to complain of in the rewards shower
ed npon him by a grateful country.
Beginning with Talavera, for which be
received a "three life" annuity of
��2000, he subsequently bad an addi
tional ��2000 tucked on to the first for
the distinguished services wbioh terminated with tbe storming of _Dindad
In the same year, also (1812), a
further annuity of ��l(MKl was voted iu
order that he might more becomingly
sustain the dukedom of Wellington,
to which be had been raised from plain
Arthur Wellesley. This pension was,
however, commuted for a lump sum
of ��40(1,1100, while the final grunt of
��300,000 voted for tne victory of
Waterloo closed the mutually satisfactory account between the gallant
Unite and the land for which he bad
achieved so much.
