Tenth  Year
The off Day Used Getting
Ready for the Fray.
WINNER HARD TO GUESS
Sir Thomas is  Not Worrying Over  the
Eaoe.���Neither is Mr- Iselin-��� Boats
in Perfect Ooncition.
London, Oct. 4.���Tho following cablegram 1ms been received from Sir
Tliomns Lipton at his London office ;
"The Shamrock did splendidly. Tlio
coiuse was kept clear, and I fear
that any obstruction would have bad a
rough lime of it. The arrangements
are most complete and satisfactory. I
have great hopes for Ihe next iaco, bnt,
it will bo a tremendous contest. "
Now York, Oct. 4.���Referring to
yesterday's yacht race. The Tribune
buys editorially:
"Sir Thomas Lipton has hud the
pleasure of bringing over a yacht to
America that has douo better in sailing in a light weather race against a
cup defender than any nicer that, over
visited our shore. Tho Columbia is
pruotioally the offspring of the former
(.('.lender, and the latter boat has sys-
temioally beaten the far-famed racing
machine of 1895. Tho Columbia is an
exceedingly fast boat. Yesterday the
challenger sailed almost a full thirty-
mile course against llio Columbia and
finished ahead. The mere fact that
the Shamrock \vs able to hold ihe Columbia all day . i th**- a; fender's own
wind should cull forth the heartiest
congratulations to tho owner and designer of the hoat, and to Ihe Royal
Ulster Yacht Club, whose representative
she is. Tho Shamrock is a wonderful
vessel. Too much stress will not be
placed on the fact that in the allerna
tion of lnok she happened tn finish
first. Luck varied greatly yesterday.
The two boats exchanged tho lead
several times. The real cause of the
congratulation which is here extended
to Sir Thomas Lipton, is that ho sailed
all day ou practically even terms
against the yacht that Americans have
been led to regard as almost invincible in light, airs Yesterday's race on
a'Columbia day' is sufficient proof,
therefore, that the Shamrock lias a
brilliant future before her. She may
not take the cup,but she will certainly
como nearer to capturing it than has
any other challenger."
The Sun says: "As to where we
are on tho sea, knowing ones must
differ. The Columbia held her own in
reaching that bail been expected. On
wind times, and, we should say, at
times when the boats appeared to be
sailing under like conditions, tho Columbia should strip her rival so that
for the greater part of the beat home,
while there was any wind worth
speaking of, Columbia hopes wero iu
the lead. On tho other hand, the
Shamrock now and again moved up in
a manner to perplex the orltloa inclining In her rival's favor; and there wo
are. We fanoy that it was a sort of
��� rial that both sides found comforting.
Oertainlj Mr. Fife, who made the
!��� hum rook, has produced in her a combination worthy of study and suggested a new line of development for
future raws for the cup. With deeper
ballast as a foundation for a greater
rig, he has ventured to make a smaller
boat. Shamrock being two feet shorter
than the Columbia. If tho boom worn
by Shamrock is about tlio limit in size,
as perhaps it is, then with still greater depth of keel, we may so diminish
the ballast so that less displacement
be needod, the gigantic sloop of recent
years may be sprung so that hor type
Bhall bo more after the pattern of forty
footers or greator sails and small
body.''
Now York, Oct. 4.���The off-racing
day was a busy one after all on the
two cup raoers. Mr. Iselin and Sir
Thomas Lipton, however, employed
three hours in different ways. On the
Columbia a stint of work was pnt in.
The bree was good from the south
West to t, nd too good, Mr. Iselin
must  b llRhti t0  waBt6) for he
made Bail on   ig boat while  it  was at
its best and went outside. There be
tried a now topsail, tbe fit of which
aeeuied better than the one used ou the
day of the race. He did not keep his
men very long at tbe task, however,
and they were brought into St. Michaels, which lays within sight of the
Hook. There were not many things to
be attended to on the Columbia, as a
racing craft she is near tuued to perfection. Still, all those things took
time. Supper was served to tbe men
and Mr. Iselin on the upper deck of
the St. Miohsels, rested with just an
occasional look at the falling glass.
The day on the Erin was one of
secret success of Sir Thomas Lipton,
and an exceedingly happy one, as he
expressed it. Sir Thomas was pleased
in the prospect of a good race tomorrow. The yacht Columbia went out
for a short trial spin outside of Sandy
Hook, shortly after noon today, principally to try a new club topsail,
which Mauaging Owner 0. Oliver
Iselin wished to have stretched and
ready for tomorrow's race. Under
mainsail and jib the yacht filled away
from her moorings, and under tho influence of the fresh southwest breeze
she was soon passing the point of
Study Hook. Captain Barr brought tne
yacht around the head to wind when
tbe new sail was ready to hoist, and
in a few moments the big sky-reaching
sail was mast-headed.
It is one of Hiawatha's latest productions, as theatrioal folks say, and
when laced to tho topmast and gaff, it
set like a tailormade gown on a pretty
woman. After setting taut on the
sheet and tack several times to get the
sail well stretched, the Columbia was
headed back for her moorings at Sandy
Hook, where she arrived about 4 p. m.
The mainsail was stowed and all hands
sent to supper on board the St. Michaels. C. Oliver Iselin, who, with
Mrs. Iselin and their guests, Messrs.
Woodbury Kane, Herbert Leeds and
Newlmry Thorns, were quartered on
the St. Michaels when seen by the
Associated Press representati/e this
afternoon, hud this to say about yaster-
dav'sraoe: "I am satisfied with the
Columbia's work during tlio rui e, but
not with the weather conditions.
Nona of us could tell where tho wind
was coming from, not even the sailing
master. In all my yachting oxperienco
I do not remember when I have seen a
flakier day than yesterday. With all
that, however, we had overhauled tbe
Shamrock for the third time when the
race was called off. She could not have
crossed our bow if she had gone about
at that time. Our crew workod well
from start to finish."
Mr. Iselin remarked that the Sbam-
rorek was a fast boat, but he did not
care to express an opinion on the result
of tbe raoes. He was particularly
pleased with the way the excursion
fleet behaved. "We were not bothered
at any stage of the race.''
Sir Thos. Lipton is not worrying
over the race one bit. On the contrary,
when seen this evening he felt confident that his craft would give a good
aooount of herself, no matter what
kind of a breeze there is blowing. Sir
Thomas did not oare to make any
statoment about tomorrow's race, except that the Shamorok would carry
exactly the same sails as she did in
yesterday s race, and that her crew
would do their best tj oross the finish
line first. The English aballenger is
in the best of condition for the coming
race.
It has beou understood in some quarters, that Oapt. Rhodes of the Defender, would be on hoard the Columbia in
bur races to lOLk after the trimming
of the sails, in an advisory capacity.
On board the St. Michaels a member
of the crow said tonight: "Captain
Rhodes has not been with us yet, but
we all wish he was along. He may
come, and if lie does, he will bo welcomed, "
"Sandy," the Columbia's mascot, is
the same yellow dog that helped to
pilot the Defender to victory. He is
well-fed, sleek looking and cared lly
cared for by the steward. The crew
to a man feel that "Sandy'is iudis.
pensable to the success of the Bristol
boat.
Skippor Charlie Barr is not wonied
a bit about the result of tbe race. He
sticks to his original assertion that tho
Columbia is the fastest single-sticker
afloat, aud that in windward or auy
other work she is more than a match
for the Shamrook.
Sir Thomas Lipton says he wants a
good breeze, however, so that the relative speed of tho defender and chal-
leugor oan be thoroughly demonstrated.
Ho had just returnod from a visit to
the Shamrock late this afternoon when
seen by the Associated Press representative. Sir Thomas spoke about his
sail on the grand old schooner yacht
America, "the boat that caused all the

Chancellor of the Exchequer Sanctions Expenditure of Three Million Pounds.
PRESIDENT   KRUGER'S   ULTIMATUM
Sir Walter Peace, Agent-General for Natal Says the Attitude of the Orange Free State Means Its Inevitable Acquisition by Britain.
London, Oct. 4. ���A meeting of Liberal members of the House of Commons, including several former members of the Liberal cabinets, was held
this morning at the private residence
of the leader of the Liberal Opposition
in the House, Sir Henry Oampbell-
Bannerman. Tbe subject under consideration was the Government's
South African policy, and the meeting
resolved to support the Government on
reassembling of Parliament, even at
the expense of placing the present official leaders of the Liberal party in
ccufliet with their former colleagues,
Sir William Harcourt aud Mr. John
Morley. Mr. Gavin Brown-Clark,
Liberal member jof Parliament for
Caithnesshire. who telegraphed to Pretoria portions of tho speech delivered
lust Saturday at Manchester by the
Lord President of the Council, the
Duke of Devonshire, which Mr. Clark
thought an opening for a pacific settlement, has received the following reply
from Pretoria, under date of October
Bid. :
"The Government of the South African Republic are gratified to learn that
powerful influences are at work
to secure a peaceful settlement. Considering, however, tho manuor ..i
which their five year franchise proposals were rejected, after the Government had every reason to believe that
these would bo accepted, considering
also the abandonment of the joint
commission proposed by Great Britain,
as well as the declaration that the
British Government regnrded all former proposals as abandoned and are
formulating fresh proposals, the Government of the South African Repubilc
do not feel at liberty themselves to reformulate tbe rjjected proposals. If
the desire for peace be earnest and sincere, an excellent opening is afforded
by the Transvaal of the acceptance of
the joint commission, a proposition
emanating from the British Government, which, if oarricd out, would
undoubtedly bring a satisfactory and
honorable settlement."
Loudon, Oct. 4.���A London news
agency publishes the following despatch from Volksrust, Transvaal, dated
Oot, 8���"An unconfirmed report is in
circulation hero that the time allowed
the British troops to withdraw from
the Transvaal border will expire at 4
o'clock tomorrow, and that failure to
comply with the demand will be considered tantamount to a declaration of
war. The British foreign office at
Loudon assured the Associated Press
that absolutely nothing was known
there of any Transvaal demand for the
withdrawal of the British troops from
the frontier.
(Continued on Fourth   Page.)
London, Oct 4.���Late advices from
Capetown this afternoon indicate a
widespread impression there that unless the Boers begin hostilities by
Thursday, they will not fight, but will
yield to the Imporial demands when
formulated. The Cape House of Assembly last evening agreed to a motion
instructing tbe Cape Government to
demand the speedy rutum to Cape Colony of any and all rolling stock now
in the Orange Free State or the Transvaal.
A special despatch from Johannesburg says the Boer official! there con-
tinne to urge tne British subjects who
remain to leave at once, and it is believed that all who do uot will be
inarched under escort nlong the railway until a train is reached to carry
them off.
Orders have been issued from Pretoria closing all the saloons in the gold
fields. The Transvaal Government has
taken over the Ferreira mines and all
the mines in the gold fields.
A group of five of the Eckstein
mines have been closed. Additional
transports with troops from India arrived this morning at Durban, Natal,
and will proceed to the front immediately. It is rumored there that the
Boers are withdrawing from the Natal
border, owing to laok of forage. Mr.
Montague White, Consul General of
the South African Republic in London, informed the Associated Press
this afternoon that the Transvaal and
the Orangn Free State days ago agreed
to present a joint demand to Great
Britain to withdraw her troops from
the frontier, but he asserts that he advised against its presentation, aud, so
far at he knows, tbe demand has never
reached the British foreign offlc?.
London, Oct. 4.���Tho most important
Announcement iu connection with the
Transvaal crisis to date is that the
Chancellor of the Exchequer, Right
Hon. Sir Michael Hicks-Beach, has already sanctioned provisional expenditure of 3,000,000 pounds, and the Government will not exceed that amount
without authority of Parliament, which
will bo asked to a sum not exceeding
eight million pounda. A meeting of
tho war board today disoussed and
made arrangements to insure the safety of the route from Durban to Laings
N>k so that large bodies of troops may
on disembarking be i.-ipidly forwarded
to up country without confusing or
crowding at tbe base. It is stated tonight that the board has decided that
the corps for service in South Africa
shall be much larger than ordinarily
estimated, and that it now consists of
40,000 men. The preparations of this
force, including chartering of ocean
liners, is steadily aud satisfactorily
proceeding.
Tho Press Association learns that
the despatch drawn up by the Cabinet
on Friday was still unseut this evening. On the other hand, a telegram
from tho British Government from a
well informed source, says news that
Dr. Leyds, tbe reposentatlve in Europe
of the South African republic, has received confirmation of tbe report that
President Kruger has addressed an
ultimatum to Great Britain demanding the withdrawal of British troops
from the South African frontier within 48 hours, and that it will be delivered on Monday. This report, however, lacks confirmation. The confidence of miltary authorities at the
Cape is shown in a message received
which stated that at a conference held
to consider the sanation. General
White expressed himself that the British would be able to put a foroe sufficient to repel any attaek.
IN THE LARDEAU COUNTRY.
Hallway Construction is Boing Poshed
Ahead Rapidly.
Railroad building in the Lardoau
country is being pushed, and the C. P.
U. now lias its road graded through to
Duncan Oity, while the right of way
has been cut some five miles further
on. Some three hundred men are kept
steadily at work, but track laying has
not been commenced yet. The grading
of the Kaslo and Lardo-Duncan road is
also progressing, and it is more than
half completed up to Duncan Oity.
There are a great many prospectors
in the country, but most of tbem go
into the country by Thompson's Landing, which at present offers tbe easiest
mode of access. The towns of the district all seem prospering, and opinion
is divided as to which will be the leading town. At present there ie a
soramblo for premier honors.
NELSON   PUBLIC LIBRARY.
Last Month's Attendance���Pilfering of
Magazinea.
Mr. Harrison, librarian of the Public
Library, reports that the attendance at
the    reading   room    for    September
amounted to 615, while I DO Cooks were
loaned out. The attendance at the
reading room has been particularly
good during the evuinugs. He makes,
however, uiie serious complaint, and
that Is, some dishonest, persons have
been making a practice of stealing the
magazines from the reading rooms. A
more petty and contemptible practice
could haidly be imagined, and it is to
be hoped that these petly larceny
thieves will cease operating. If caught
they will be severely dealt with.
A few now subscribers joined during
the past month, and a number of half-
yearly subscriptions have expired and
have not been renewed. No subscribers should cease supporting such a
meritorious institution.
FISHING  INDUSTRY.
Sensible Suggestions From a Prominent Busiuoss Man.
A man most prominent iu affairs
throughout the Kootenay eruutry was
heard to say yesterday that he could
not understand why it was that for
the pist year or more the City of Seattle virtually supplied the City of Nelson and adjoining towns with fresh
fish, more especially when the lake
aud rivers here were so splendidly supplied with as fine fish as could be had
in the world. "A good many dollars,"
said the gentleman, "go out of Nelson
through tho fall and winter for such fish
as salmon and halibut, which might as
well be kept at home and be building
up another industry. If the fishing
laws are such that they act as a pre-
ventiiive iu this matter they ought to bo
changed to suob an extent that some
enterprising man might be enabled to
secure fish at home and open up in the
business here."
GUNBOAT RECOVERED.
Manila, Oot. 4.���Rear Admiral Watson announces the recovery of the
United States Gunboat Urdanata,
which was eapntrtd by the insurgents
after a fierce fight, near Orani River,
where sho had been blockading under
Cadet Wellborn from the Wood. The
expedition was entirely successful, the
Americans suffering no casualties
Several hundred insurgents have re-
oocupied Purac, which was captured
by General McArthur on Sept. 2!t aud
evaouated by tbe Americans the foi
lowing day. The insurgent forces are
also reported moving towards Mexico
southeast on Ang3le9. The object of
the double movement is apparently to
get behind tho American garrison on
both sides of tho Manila railway.
DEWEY'S  FLAG HAULED DOWN.
Washington, D. O., Oct. 4.���Secretary Long today issued an order to
Admiral Dewey detaching him from
the Ol.vmpia and directing him to haul
down his flau. This action was taken
at the request of Dewey, who desires to
be relieved of the responsibility of
command. Secretary Long ordered
Captain Camberton.of the Olympia, to
take that vessel to Boston, where she
will be extensively repaired at the
navy yard.

BASEBALL  GAMER.
Almost a Panic- Prices are
Tumbling Down.
YMIR IS A TURN FIRMER
Prices Show no Signs of Kevival in  the
British     Columbia    Mining
Market.
Chicago, 4; Louisville  8.
Washington, 1 . Brooklyn, 5.
Blatimore, 8 ; Philadelphia, 7.
Loudon, Kept. 34. ��� (Special Correspondence to The Miller.)���During
the past week the feeling on tbe Stock
Exchange has been almost a panic
Prices in all directions tumbled do.v.i,
all sections of tbe House being affected. Consols descended to a lower level
thau that reached at the time of the
Jameson raid. Rand Mines wero obtainable at nhout y;i. the lowest price
touched this year. In the Hume Rail
market Great Easterns luid a great
fall, whilu Americans receded heavily
on the money altair iu New York,
while feeling on the Stock Exchange
is, generally, that war is almost a certainty, but it is admitted that there
is still a hope that events may take a
better turn. In any ease, it is the uncertainty which is playing havoc with
the markets ; and everyone is looking
for a sharp turn for the better the
moment events take a definite turn.
In the West Australian market, the
affairs of the Transvaal show their influence here, although the events in
the Transvaal can have no bearing
upon the Mining industry of Western
Australia. During ihe past week considerable further liquidation has occurred as a result of the settlement, but
this has not stopped the upward movement of some of .ue moat activo shares
in mis' ht. fio.i. Those operators who
threw away their r'.iares when prices
were at the lowest,and who even made
bear sales at this level, thus sustaining
a double loss, must now greatly regret
if. Lake View Consols have had a very
important recovery from tbe announcement of another large August output,
and have been over ��34, after a temporary reaction, as the mine is doing as
well as ever. Boulders, Hanuau's,
Ivanhoe, Knlggurli, and tho associated
group havu all hardened. London and
Globe have been well supported. In
the Transvaal mining market various
adverse circumstances, such as the
dearth of labor, as a result of the
political crisis, tavo not yet made
their influence seriously felt in tbe
progress of the mining industry in the
Transvaal as to lessen the output,
which for August shows a record. The
productiou of the Rand was -loll,709 oz.
and of the outside districts 22,899 oz ,
making a total of 488,108 oz.
In the British Columbia mining
market prices havo not yet shown any
signs of revival, the chief business
being in B. A. O. and Le Roi, the
former having Improved and the latter
coming into better demand. Ymir is
also a turu firmer. This is about the
only marked movement In this market,
qut as soon as the war cloud has cleared off business will resume its former
appearance.
The Board of Trade have issued their
general railway report for the year
1898. The total capital of the railways
of the United Kingdom at the end of
1898 was ��184,000,000, an increase of
nearly ��45,000,000 in the year,of which
��18,000,000 sterling was nominally due
to the conversion of stocks. The total
traffic receipts in 18!is were ��96,300,*
000, against 198,700,000 in 1H97, the
trains runuinu 880,00,000 miles aud
.'1(17,1100,000, respectively. Tho total
working expenses were 166,980,000 in
1898. against $5:1,080,000 in 1897. The
net earnings were 140,391,968, against
140,668,960. With regard to the prospects of tho current year, the report
states that there has been a continuation in the improvement in gross earnings, but the expenses have also increased, there boing no sign of appro,
ciablo leductions with the cost of
either fuel or wages. It is possible
that there may be a somewhat more
satisfactory genoral result m 1899 thau
in 1898, i.oin tho railway shareholders' point of view, but we do not anticipate any remarkablo advance in
this respect. A

SHORT, SHARP. AND DECISIVE.
Just at this time the opinion of .Sir
Walter Peace, tbe Agent-General for
Natal, will be deeply interesting. We
give it here. Interviewed a few days
ago, he said:
"The attitude of the Orange Free
State means its inevitable acquistiou
by Great Britain. Peace in South
Africa can only be accomplished by
war. In my opinion a war would not
last more than two months. In order
to make pacification effective, Great
Britain must assume absolute control
over the whole of South Africa. So
far as the position of Natal is concerned, all this talk about poor,undefended
Natal is nonsense. There will be little or no fighting in Natal, if it conies
to war, and I fear no other issue is now
possible. What do you think 10,000
British troops would be doing while
this much talked of Boer raid was in
progress? Our railways are in good
working order aud troops can be transported quickly. Tbe weather conditions have been magnificent. A campaign could be carried on just as well
as in any other season. Two months
from the day General Buller lands, the
fighting will be over. If the Free
State had been loyal, fighting would
not have lasted f^urteeu days. It is
tbe luckiest thing in the world, however, that tbe Free State has been foolish enough to take a hostile attitude,
for that means her addition t) British
possessions. The State would always
have been a disturbing element iu the
quiet of South Africa. Great Britain
has the power to work out ultimate
peace. It remains to be seen whether
she has the spirit. Upon the conclusion of the war, which must be unflinching iu order to be effective, British control must be absolute over all
South Africa, in Cape Colony, Natal
aud other sections. Half measures
will only prolong unrest and produce
more disturbance. I have known the
Boers as well as any man. I have lived
among them and I have fought them.
To exist peacefully so close to them is
an utter impossibility. Negotiations
are well enough in their way; but
British control of the Transvaal must
come eventually. For years the Boers
have been crying 'Throw the Ontlaud-
er into the sea,' and Out with him.'
Possibly they are not so virile as during the last war, but there is little difference. My idea is that if the Boers
weie caught iu the open once or twice,
the thing would be ended. Kill 500 of
them, and all that would remain for
England to do would be to send a few
shiploads of crape. They never have
stood in the open, aud if war comes
now they will have to do more than
stay in the hills. This is no optimistic twaddle, but an opinion based upon
my experience in campaigns against
tbe Boers. I have not the slightest
fears for the safety of my colony or its
towns. It is possible that a few Boer
inoursious might get a few miles into
Natal, but no further, and it must be
remembered that many of (hose living
on the edge of Natal border are themselves BnerB."
It is human nature to claim more
than is expected in preparing a case
for arbitration. (Jreat Britain did this
in respect to that Venezuelan boundary, but the award cf the jurors gives
her substantially all ibat was ever demanded as of' nght. The American
press dispatch that assumes to estimate the award is misleading. Il was
thought necessary, no doubt, to show
that the Washington people had a good
excuse for tbe extraordinary demonstration of three or four years ago. The
award is the best proof that their indig-
nation was either simulated or was without cause. We shall do Mr. Cleveland
the justice to admit, however, that his
violent and eccentric course hastened
the adjustment of this boundary dispute. If tbe Venezuelan President will
now reciprocate, and issue a furious
manifesto,declaring the terrible things
he will do to the United States in case
ot further trifling, it is possible that
arbitration on the Alaskan bouudary
ruay be reached before the next century is out of its 'teens.

ultimo this was done, but The Rossland Miner says the concession will result in no advantage excepting to the
O. P. R. Company. The regulation
that will benefit is one that will secure
not only home smelting but home refining; nothing less will be of any use.
Perhaps not, but to the ordinary mind
anything that will encourage smelting
in Canada is bound to help the industry as a whole. If the smelters can
see light ahead, witb the duty removed, it must be because they have faith
in obtaining the oie to keep them employed.

Then' is just now a tremendous
amount of litbor wasted in proving
that mine workers have a riKlit to organise unions. More lamentable even
than this are the frantic efforts that
are bein^ made to show that oilier organisations are bending all their energies to compass their cleatrn> tion. No
one disputes for a moment the right of
tbe miners to form themselves into
unions, and to do everything their
judgment deems necessary for the protection and promotion of their interests. And as this right is not disputed,
it will not occur to any one of sound
mind that others desire to drive them
out of existence. Only the wildest or
most perverted imagination could conceive that the sole lemaiuing object of
the Mine Owners' Association is to
break op every Miners' Union in the
Province. This extremely stupid idea
has never beeu entertained. Miners'
Unions have the same right to live as
other associations. There is no question of that kind that is causing the
least ooncern or uneasiness to anybody
outside oi insane asylums and foolish
newspaper offices. While everybody
concedes the right to organise Miners'
Unions, it is recognised that they may
possibly leeek to exact more than they
aro fairly entitled to.   It  is believed

DAMON -JPYTHIAS
THE  K-   OP   P'S.   WILL   HAVE A
SPEOIAL NIGHT.
'f he Kelson Lodge Arrange for 1 his Thrilling Drama to be Presented
Friday Night-
Tho Kelson Lodge No. 25, K. of. P.
liave made arrangements witb the K.
E, French Theatre Company to present
to the people of Kelson and surrounding camps the play of Damon and
Pythias, under the auspices of the K.
of. P- The drama, which is a thrilling one, will be presented with all of
tbe splendor of ancient times. Elegant
and coHtly costumes will bo worn hy
tbe actors and by the Knights of Pytli-
ins. The Uniform Rank wi'l meet at
their Castle Hall and march in a body
to the Opera House. Numerous
Knights from other towns are expected
to be in the City. The "Sonate" will
be composed of Knights in the City
who will he upon the stage in the regalia of their high office. Everything
will be done hy the Knights to provide for the full and successful presentation of the world-famous drama.
The names of the Knights who so fnr
have been selected to act as senators
arc: Chos. A. Prosser, L. P. Wolfe,
Thos. Lillie, Geo. Joy, H, L. West
aud Fred Bradley. The drama will be
given tomorrow���Friday night���at the
Nelson Opera house.
The order of the K. of P is founded
on the story of Damon and Pytbias, as
handed down from the dark ages of
the paBt. A brief outline of it is given.
Dionysius, according to history, was
one of the ino-t cruel aud blood thirsty
tyrants who ever ruled. It was his
beast that ho never had a friend.
That true friendship was nothing but
a myth, only mawkish sentiment. He
believed in uo man or woman. There
was to him only evil in the world.
There was in the sarvioe of the King
two men. Damon and Pythias, who
were inseparable, who delighted in the
bond of friendship botween them.
Through the order of Dionysius Damon
was condemned tn death. Pythias on
bin knees pleaded and bogged with the
tyrant for the life of his friend. It
was of no avail. Damon hud a wife
and child. They wero his oil, his life
and soul was wrapped up in his beautiful, pore wife aud lovely baby. He
begged to be allowed to see them, but
they lit oil at a distance aud could not
come to him,and he was in n dungeon,
Pythias begged to be allowed to take
the plaoe of Damon as a hostage,agreeing that if Damon did not return at a
given time to suffer the penalty of
death in his place. Dionysius, with a
sneer, agreed to allow Damon to depart
to seo his wife and threw Pythias into
the dungeon. Damon departed, saw
his wife and child and told them the
awful tidings. His wife wanted him
to flee and escape from the impending
death, hut true to bis friend he resisted even the pleadings of the loved
ones. Accidents delay him on the return trip. The time for the execution
has arrivod. Pythias stands upon the
scaffold, where the oxecutioner, with
the cruel, glitteving ax, is ready to
sever his head from bis body. Dionysius, with all the cruelty nnd sarcasm
of his nature, is sneering at Pythias
and asking what ho thinks of his
friend. Pythias, with true friendship,
still maintains his trust in his friend.
The ax is about to fall wbon a shout
from the niuliitudo attracts the attention of the King and and the executiin-
eer. The ax is stayed, and coming
across the dusty plain is seen a horseman, and as he approaches it is seen to
be Damon, who, throwing himself from
his horse, clasps Pythias iu his arms
and declared himself ready to be sacri-
flced, The grim, hard-hearted tyrant
is so moved by this exhibition of true
friendship that, contrary to his nature
and of every aot of liiet previous life,
he pardoned Damon aud takes both
friends into his personal service that
lie may ever have hef re him a living
example of genuine friendship.
"WANTED���A WIFE."
very clover piece of acting, and Miss
Mamie Holden made a charming Lucy
Norton. The part of William, the lung
suffering valet,whs well taken by Kinney McLeod, who, with Hairy O'Connor, as Claude, the butlor, contributed
greatly to tho amusement of the evening.
The play of tho night was preceded
with "Dropping a Hint, "in which
Miss Mamie Holden amply demonstrated the power of female tears upon frail
humanity.
The play tonight is that old favorite,

doubt from the pen of Mr. Matbeson.
Speaking of the reception at Nelson,
the writer says: "This was one of the
pleasantdst and most enjoyable tunc
tions of the trip"
AT THE HOTELS.
An Amusing  Play Well Put on by the
K. B, French  Company.
There was a large audience at tho
Opera House last night to witness that
funny oomedy "Wanted���A Wife, " in
whi ;h the hero, Charles Slnikleton, to
keep up the deception practised on his
guardian is obliged to find u wife and
child at a few hours' notice,nnd eventually finds himself with one too ninny,
���lane, the servant, maid,played by Mrs.
Kronen, takes tho role of pseudo wife.
She has just been married to Hhakle-
ton's valet, and screamingly funny
sitnationns occur one after another.
Nothing but praise can be given to
Mrs. French for hor rendition of the
part. Whether as the coquettish housemaid, or splendidly gowned ns the
handsome and fashonable Mrs Shaklo-
ton, she was equully good, and her extremely elever acting, aided by tho
amusing character of tho play, kept
the house in roars of laughter, It is
long since a Nelson audienoe has had
two hours of snob continuous fun.

MR. DAVYS REPLIES
Another Tribune Lie Nailed Befnre It
I?   Cold.
Editor Miner���
I see it stated iu this morning Tribune that "Mr. Davys refused to join
any Mine Owners' Associaton. or other
society of a similar nature." As a
matter of fact. I was one of the first
members of tbe Association in question. For the information of tbe omniscient editor of The Tibnne. I may
state that the Association was formed,
not to oppose tbe Miners' Unions, but
to foster and guard the mining industry generally, and against, among other
things, legislation affecting mining,
and consists exclusively of men personally connected witb ininiug enterprises, whether engineers, practical miners or not. Since this Association has
beeu formed I have employed and still
employ union and nou-ncion men
without distinction, taking every man
for what he is worth, which disposes
of anv idea of bo-tilitvro the uuion.
Yours trulv. M.DAVYS
