country. They have bought out Ihe

as Mr. Thomson will devote his entire
attention to Hie syndicates affairs.
Those who know him in Nelson will

residence in the city Mr. Thomson has
been recognized as one of the best citizens and has done much to serve Nell's interests, lie bas been aperman-
eiii member of the Board of Trade and
has made an excellent alderman. Nelson people will regret to hear of his departure hut he will be followed to his
new field wilh the best wishes for sue-
ees from all classes here. There are
many men that Nelson could better afford to lose than "Hig" Thomson.
It is iinderat md that Mr. P. Criddle

forthe Tinner, Beeton & t'o., Nelson
branch, Mr. Criddle has been connected with tlie company  for some
coucert with six of his colleagues. Reappointed to same office January 15,

HOW   SHAMROCK  IS   BUILT.
Sir Thomas   Lipton's   Yacht   Will
Make Fast Time.
London, July 16.���The Daily
Mail which gives what it calls the
"Secret of Shamrock's construction
hitherto carefully guarded to prevent it being utilized by America,"
says: "Shamrock is designed with
swanlike lines rounded in suchia
way as hardly to cause a ripple n
her wake. She displaces the small-
possible amount of water. Her
keel is shaped almost like a thick
letter T so sh e can turn as if on a
pivot. It is claimed and proved
that she is two seconds faster than
Columbia in stays. Those in
charge of Shamrock doubt whether
Columbia has proved her superiority to Defender and consider it quite
on the cards that Shamrock would
have beat the latter." Erin will accompany Shamrock in crossing the
Atlantic. Sir Thomas Lipton will
not sail in Erin but will leave for
the United States on August 26th.

Washington, I). O, July FT.���A statement containing correspondence by
Gen. Miles, President MoKinley, Admiral Cewey and General Merrit with regard to kind and number of military
forces required at the Philippines after
Dewey's defeat of the Spanish fleet
at Manila, was prepared at army
head-quarters today and given for
publication. It says: "There has
Been some discussion in the press recently relating to an alleged difference
of opinion regarding the number of
troops to be sent to the Philippines.
On the first instance, upon receiving
the news through press dispatches of
Dewey's victory at Munila, General
Miles recommended Ihe dispatch of a
military force in tlie Philippines."
The correspondence then follows in
regular order the statement concluding
with this deduction: "It thus appears
there was no controversy regarding
tlie number of troops to be sent to the
Philippines ,but only a difference of
opinion as to the composition ot the
force, General Merrit desiring to have
more Regulars, than was designated.

War Correspondents Do Not Like
His Censorship.
New York, July 17.���The ["Journal" prints a dispatch from James
Creelman, who was the Journal's
correspondent in Manila, and who is
now in London, in which he says
that unless Gen. Otis is removed the
campaign in the Philippines will be
a failure. He says Gen. Otis is a
fussy old man, unaccustomed to
anything- but regimental commonds,
saturated with the ideas [and methods ol a routine clerk. His experience does not go outside of regimental duties. He is incapable of
dealing with the far-reaching intricate, problems involved in war with
the natives.
Greelman says that after the outbreak Otis refused to allow the
army to make any advance and
when Gen. Anderson told him that
the only way to destroy the enemy
was to fight them, Gen. Otis treated
him with open hostility and finally
had him returned to the United
States. Meanwhile Otis busied
himself about details of smaller
lights. The story says Gen. Otis
always exercises his right to censor
press dispatches in a tyrannical manner. The night Creelman brought
to him a dispatch telling ho wCol.
Funston swam a river under fire,
Otis, he says, struck out Funston's
name, remarking: "I propose to
make all the heroes that are made
in this way."
Mr. George Bigelow has been in Nel-
for the past few days, and left town by
the Moyie on Saturday niKht for Sirdar.
Mr. Bigelow's views on the present
situation of thiigs, though somewhat
illogical and disconnected, were exceedingly entertidniuing���at hast so
they seemed to The Miner representative.
Mr Bigelow said he had been in
this country seventeen years. As is
well known Le iB one of the pioneer
merchants of Nelson. Mr. Bigelow is
also a pressman, at least so he averred,
and takes a great interest in the local
press. He explained how he had
" mode" the editor of The Tribune
by starting him up with 1 cigar
box of type and telling him to
go ahead and educate the masses of
Nelsou, with the blessings of G. B. on
his head. He considered Tne Tribune
editor the most ungrateful man he had
ever met. He had visited The Tribune
office that afternoon, and the editor refused to give audience, broke a quantity of the ofllce furniture, and finally
ordered Mr. Bigelow to be removed
from tbe premises.
But Mr. Bigelow had not been to
Nelson then as a merchant. It was as
a political wirepuller^md niighiy mysterious he was on what had taken place
in the Nelson political arena during the
last few days. Of one fact he made no
bones. Hume was doomed ; his own
supporters had no use for him, and the
family grocer from Kaslo must follow
in Hume's train. New b!ood was to
be infused, but Mr. Bigelow would not
mention any names. Sir. S.S. Taylor
had been asked to run, he said, but
had refused, and now there waa a
strong feeling against having any lawyer to represent this division.
The Eight Hour law wonld stand until Gabriel blew his post horn. No one
would dare to council himself against it.
The Miner's want of appreciation of that
all-wise piece ot legislation was due to
lick ot education. John Houston
would'nt be ssked to run as he was, like
joe Martin, too much of a "Bull doser."
Mr. Bigelow thought the mining industry waa never more prosperous than
st the present moment. If foreign capitalists didn't like the eight hour law they
could clear out aud the country go to
glory without them. If they don't want
onr laws  we dont WHUt their oapital
MISSIONARY WORK
Repoit Read at the Annual
Baptist Convention.
MR. ROSE'S WORK HERE
The Nelson Ohnrch Has Made Very Encouraging Progress During the
Past Year.
In the First Baptist Church on Pun-
day morning Rev. C. W. Rose gave a
brief accouut of the business transacted at the Baptist Convention at
Vancouver which he attended last
week, He briefly outlinkd the principal subjects dealt with which showed
that the church was becoming continually stronger throughout the Province. The following extracts from tne
annual report of the Superintendent
of Missions contains much of interest to Kootenay:
Trail; Pastorless and forsaken,
though not entirely downcast, this little church, since the resignation of
Rev. H, C, Sweet, has been supplied by
Pastors Stackhouse, Rose. Rev. A. B.
D. St Dalmar and the superintendent.
A call has been extended to and accepted by Rev. Hugh Saunders of
Park Hill, Ont., who is now on his
way to this field.
Rossland: After the resignation of
Pastor Best the work at Rossland suffered a serious decline until the arrival
of Rev, W. T. Stackhouse, whose advent upon the field was a signal for an
onward movement all along the line of
church work. Perhaps the statement
that the weekly offering increased
from less than $0 to more than $60 will
be sufficient to indicate the mighty impetus given our work here through the
efforts of Bro. Stackhouse's. In three
months the church became self-supporting; indeed, during Mr. Stack-
house's pastorate the cash outlay was
nothing, inasmuch as he repaid money
given for expenses to the Maritime
convention.
Nelson: First Baptist Church, under the able leadership of Rev, C. W.
Rose; this church is paying off its indebtedness at the rate of $400 per year.
It has assumed self-support at the beginning of this convention year and
given to the regular benevolence of the
denomination beside. The membership has more than doubled. The congregations have steadily increased. At
the beginning of Mr. Rose's work in
Nelson the church was being helped by
the Home Mission Board at the rale of
$���100 per annum, now it is able to stand
alone, nnd also to pay into the treasury
for tbe smslters. The mines around
Greenwood sre very lively and a prosperous season is anticipated. Republic
is recovering from its recent bad fire.
The Casosde Record to hand contains
an interview with Mr. Peters. In part
it reads : "Last week's publication of
the construction freight rates have created no little interest among Boundary
shippers. A careful study of them will
show that the O. P. R. in this construction traffic on the new Hue, is getting all
their is in it. That is to say, west Robson and Bossburg are figured as common points, and the rate from the former
is placed just low enough to attempt to
knock out the freighters from Bossburg.
On any class under third, this may be
done : above tbat, it is donbtful.
The carload rates to Cascade by rail
are : 1st olais, 71c ; 2nd class, 62o ; 3rd
class, 6O0; 4th, 38o ; 5th, 34c ; 6th, 31c ;
7th, 26o ; 8th and 9th, 21c ; 10th, 19c;
smalls, 50c each, unless first olass rate
be higher.
When asked why these high rates pre
vailed, Mr. Peters stated that it was
the schedule agreed up between thn contractors and the company, and was
something over whioh the C.P.R. did
not bave exclusive oontrol. He thought
they would prevail eutil the road, or a
seotion of it was turned over to the company by the contractors.
It is believed tbere is a colored gentleman oonoealed somewhere in the pile of
wood, and it is probable that a large
share of Cascade freight will come by
the old route for the present. Mr.
Peters went to the upper Boundary, and
also hopes to oorral some of the tonnage
into Republic.
Developments ot an exceedingly interesting nature are looked for almost any
day by those who think they understand
the situation.

Bisleyjuly 17.���The second stage
of the rifle shooting contest for Her
Majesty the Queen's Prize began
this morning; open only to volunteers and retired volunteers, in
three stages. Last year there were
1770 competitors. At the first stage
of the shooting at 200 yards a Canadian, Bertram, and several others,
scored the highest possible, 35. Of
other Canadians, Cartwright, A.

that a church can live and grow on

METAL QUOTATIONS.
BIG CRICKET SCORE.
Tbe particulars are to hand of tbe gi
gantic score made in England last
month by A. E. J. of Clifton College,
beside which the previous perform -
ancees of Grace, Stoddard and the
other doughty champions of the bat
fade into comparitive insignificnee.
It seems tbat tbo lad is an orphan,
a son of tbe former member of the Indian civil service, and that he has been
bnt four years in England and two
of these at Ciifton, where he has been
trained by the famous Lancashire pro-
Barlow.
Last year he made several centuries
for his sohool and this year he scored
on one occasion 250 rnns, but his
present performance eclipses these
and all other reoordsjcompletely. Play
ing Clark's House, Olitton, vs. North
Town, he went in firBt, staying a��, the
wickets seven hours, hit one six, 4 fives
81 fonrs, 33 threes, 146 twos and 84
singles, nearly all run out, and amassed.the enormous total of 628 not ont off
bis own bat I Tbe total score was 828,
and one curious fact is that no other
batsman made as many as 60 runs,
and only three made over 20. Taking
all the other batsmen together they
socred nt the rate of 23 rnns an hour,
while Collins made 90 runs an hour
alone !
The previous record score was that of
A. E. Stoddard, who made 485, Ham
stead vb. Stoics, inj 1886. It is safe
ta predict it will be more than 13
years before   Collins' score is eclipsed.
Victoria, B. C. July 17���In Foster vs
the O. P. R. Mr. Justice Drake has given
his decision granting the injunction
applied for by the plaintiff, respect*
ing lot 208, grup 1 Kootenay, distriot
Kaslo, the orown grant shows the
bundary on the easterly side as being
Kootenay lake. A part of this lot has
been lad ont as a townsite.
A great difference exists between
high and low water] in the lake whioh
is and to have a vertical rise as much
as fourteen feet and upwards. The
plantiff claims is riparian owner tha
right to lay out lots on the land bare
at low water and to exclude any one
else from erecting any structures
which will interfer with free access
to the water. The defendants own
two lots in this townsite, partly above
high water, and they are erecting a
wharf for the use of their steamers
on land which the plaintiff has laid
nut in town lots. The defendants
claim that from tbe field notes of the
survey it is apparent that the high
water line was taken as tbe boundary,
there being 400 feet between this line
ami low water iu places, andthatforeshore rights belong to the Dominion
and not to the Province. Mr. Jnstioe
Drake declines to express an opinion as
to what rights the plaintiff may bave
as riparian owner, but deoides that
plaintiff is entitled to bave free access to tbe water and that the defendants wharf and piling interfere with
this.
The questions which arise in the
action ure of considerable limportanoe
aud can be settled at tbe trial. The
injunction is granted until the trial
but in the meantime the defendants
are entitled to the use of the wharf as
heretofore for landing goods and passengers.

Something to Say About It
Mr. F. W. Peters, Distriot Freight
Agent of the 0. P. R. returned yesterdny from a trip through the Boundary
country, leaving here last Tuesday. He
travelled by construction trains on tbe
Robson & l'eotioton road to the summit,
coasted down the other side on a hand
car to the end of the track, rode to
Christina lake, crossed by boat and
walked to Cascade, from there he drove
to Grand Forko, to Midway and Republic
where he caught tbe train for home. His
trip was for nil purpose of seeing for
himself just when the merchants of the
Boundary oountry oould expeot shipments of freight by rail. He states that
allowing for all possible delays tbe track
should be laid to Cascade by the first
week in August and to Grand Forks ten
days later. He so ratified the merchants who have been holding their shipments to await tho adve' t of the railway and found a huge tonnage of freight
ready to move. At Republio be found
mine owners and merchants are anxious
lo ship over the 0. P. R, to Grand
Forks and Columbia. The rail will
save 40 miles of the worst kind of rosd.
It is but 35 miles to the Canadian
l'acitlc and teams get there over ��� good
rosd.
The indications are that t large amount
ot ore will be taken eut of that samp
THE POPE'S PLANS.
London, July 17.���Tlie Rome
correspondent of The Daily Telegraph says: The Pope is resolved
to conduct personally the religious
ceremonies opening the century.
He will inaugurate them with the
holding of a consirtory at which the
Archbishop of Santiago DeChilli
will be given a Cardinal's hat, and
other important changes will be
made among the South American
prelates.
AGAINST PRIZE FIGHTS.
Providence, 111 , July 17��� Aroused
by reeent prize fights at Exeter and
Narragansett Pier, Governor Dyer today issued a proclamation offering a
reward of $500 for the apprehension of
persons engaged in or promoting any
prize fight within the confines of the
State.
SOME GERMAN HAILSTONES.
Berlin, July 17 ���A heavy thunderstorm prevailed throughout the country to-day The storm was accompanied by a fall of hailstones, some of
whioh were as large as walnuts. Immense damage was done.
QUITE EXCITING AT THE HAGUE.
It Was  a Very Lively  Meeting Thai
Discussed  Peace Yesterday.
Tho Hague, July 17 ���The first oommittee of the International Peace Conference met this morning to discuss M.
Van Karneback's report on the first four
points of Muravieft'n ciaoular. Sneh
diiferenbes of opinion developed lbat it
was ultimately decided that the report
must be re-cast. It appears now that
the Ih.si committee rejected the recommendation of the sub-committee that a
clause should be appended to the declaration of St. Petersburg of 1808 prohibiting the firing of explosives from balloons
aud the use of asphyxnting bombs and
explosive bullets. Many delegates seemingly had left tbe room not knowing the
question nt issue. The third committee
held 11 plunary meeting to-day discussing
international commissions of inquiry and
ndopting with certnin amendments article
56 1 sporting the expenses of the tribuaal.
The seotion of article 54 providing for
tne revision of arbitration which the
Americans had succeeded in adding to
the original projeot, was the subject of
a long debate. On tbe motion of M. De
Martinez, Russian delegation, to eleme-
nate the amendment Messrs. Holla
whose remarks were repeatedly translated into Frenoh by M. Dnstrounellee,
declared the Americans would be unable
to agree to tbe arbitration scheme if revision were stricken out unless they received further instructions from Washington. Tbis announcement created a
sensation. Professor ot the Duteh delegation presented a fresh draft proposal
which be vigorously supported. Mr.
Holls finally accepted an amendment
provided that the disputing parties oan
reserve the right of revision hy speoial
arrangement.

St John, NHL, July 17,-The Newfoundland Supreme Court has reduced
the salvage for rescuing the Dominion
Line steamship Gaspesia, which was

not even claimed that existing companies are harassed beyond endurnnee.
But it is held that the law, has seriously inlerporferod with nining development now in progress, and that
oapital for prospective development hn^
been frightened away by it. It is
held, and with truth, that business
generally has been injured. The law
has done harm ; no one .says it has been
or will be fatal. The mineriil wealth
of British Ooliiinbia is to gre-t to remain long hidden by reason of any
law; but much may be done to hamper
tliose ougaged in developing it, and
that is what has resulted from the ignorant meddling of the legislature in
tbe present instance, It has not killed,
but it has hurt.

During the period of suspense, and
in spite of prostration from haat, the
Coast newspapers continue to discusB
more or less fitfully tbe division of
Provincial partios on Federal lines.
The Vanoonver World is frankly outspoken in favor of it. Tbe Colonist
and The Olobe believe that it will be
better to go on as we are, and leave
Federal division to Federal affairs.
The News-Advertiser says little, but
tbat little is understood to express
satisfaction with the present in-
ditfeienoe to party distinctions. It is
believed, however, that whatever conduces to tbe greater glory of Mr.
Carter Cotton will be eminently pleasing in its ��lght. No one seems to care
a great deal about what Senator Tern-
pieman's paper, The Times, thinks on
the subject, or whether it thinks at
all,according to the best understanding.
Whatever perference it has shown is
for local government on purely local
lines.
The  Vancouver  Province   takes the
matter  Beriously,   which   in itself  is
sufficient of   a  novelty   to   attract attention.   A   recent   issue  contains an
article that has all   the solemnity of  a
funeral in each line of it.    Its voice is
raised in opposition to a division  into
Federal parties.    There is a   snspicion
that the Province  fears  the  party   it
wonld  be    compelled    to    champion
would be in the  minority, and that it
is, because of this alarming apprehen-'
son,   so   earnest    in    opposing     the
suggestion. '' There oan be little doubt''
it  says,   "that  a   question  of   deop
importance to the welfare of this Provinoe is about to present itself for solution,   upon    the  result of   which  depends the popularity of a oountry whose
immediate needs are capable  administration and legislation sufficiently progressive to meet the growing require
mentB and  changing  conditions  of  a
rapid development" Suoh is the introduction, The question of deep importance is this one of Federal party lines.
tt is idle  to hope any  good  of   it.
"When every energy should be directed towards the development of n  oountry with so varied a oharaoter  of pro
duots, division  and  its   consequences
are highly dangerous to its best Interests' '   We speak  subjeot to correction,
of course, hut did not   the Province  a
little over a year ago, when its strongest friend, Mr. Martin, had tbe oountry
in tbe hollow of   his baud,   use every
endeavor to draw   the   striotest party
lines? Now, however, Mr. Martin is ont
or about to be put  out, and   with him
goes all hope for the Provinoe, therefore
thore is nothing but evil  in   the suggested division.
The Miner's position may be stated
in a few words. It can see no absolute necessity for the introduction of
Dominion issues into Provincial poll-
tics nor oan it Bee why a division on
Dominion lines should he attended
with evil We aro making more of the
matter than it deserves. What all of
us should regard aa first in importance is the good goveurment of the
Province, and whether we get this
from meu who call themselves Liberals, or from another sot who call thorn
selves Conservatives, cannot matter to
those whose onljr conoern is the public
welfare. If a division would tend
towards greater stability, a weightier
sense of responsibility, it wonld be
an advantage to have it. It would be
an advantage for the reason that it
would elevate the tone and oharaoter
of our politics, and with them thoso
of our politicians. Both are^sadly needed, but whether the suggested chango
is necessary to bring thorn about may
be open to question. At presont the
great requirement of the Province is a
Government with sense enough to
leave well enough alone, with ability
enough to distinguish Its wants, with
courage onough to grapple with them,
and wiih honosty onough to do this In
tbe pnblio interest alone. If to insure
this Mr. Somlin should Hnd it nocos-
sary to reconstruct on party lines, then
party lines let it be by all menus.
Thoee who feel themselves bound to
defend the eight-hour law and its
effects, strain mightily and distort unscrupulously to show that tho mining
Industry in this rogion is more prosperous than evor. It has been claimed
that the law has paralyzed mining;  it
Of Mr. Martin and the charge of unprofessional conduct made against him
the Montreal Star irreverently observes :
"It wonld not be fair to discuss how
much ohamperty this notoriously quarrelsome statesman has concealed about
his person, or whether he ever d alt
in that sort of thing at all, or even
knows what it is if he saw it. We
wish merely to remark that we hope
there is no truth in the oharge. His
sphere of bickering usefulness, as one
may view it, may be goue in British
Columbia, but what a glorious future
awaits one of his pugnacity and obstinacy out in the Yukon amongst Mr. Sif-
ton's official and other pets, and what
a whale of a time he would have the
day of his arrival in Dawson in making things unpleasant for those whom
the Parliament of Canada would not
disturb. Mr. Martin has raised a merry
Cain iu two Province'. Let ns hope
that he gives the Yukon and Mr. Sif-
ton and tre gang a turn befce he
withdraws entirely from the disputatious pleasantries of publio life. The
most enjoyable ruction of his whole
oareer lies before him. "

A few days ago the Tribune made a
great deal of capital ont of a report
that the mines around Silverton were
commencing \o hire men at $3.50
for eight hours work. The Wakefield
was mentioued and it wns sni.l IT men
were at work there. Stress was also
laid on the fast that thore were no idle
miners around Silverton. Not one
mine iu the Silverton district is working men underground for$3.50 for eight
hours exoept the Noonday, which is
owned by the president of the Silver
tou miners union. The Wakefield haB
10 men doing surface work at $11.00 for
ten hours work and has no miners
underground. The Wakefield wonld
take over a hundred men at once for
$8.00 for eight hours but will ciose
down permanently rather than pay
$.850. Thero nre no idle men around
Silverton becai se they have left the
country as a result of the governments
legislation. But there are idle store
keepers and clerks. If the labor trou
ble were settled tomorrow the mines
oiuld not start up as there aie not men
in the couutry to operate one quarter
of them.
A copy of the Victoria Daily Colon
ist, a regular and valued exchange, has
not hjen received nt tho Miner office
for a week. If the Post Ofllce Inspector
were to inspect, ho could disclose
many curious things in connection
with the postal service between the

WANTS TO PLAY FOOTBALL.
The secretary of the Vernon football
club writes the Miner as follows;
"Noticing a challenge in the Vancou-
er Province for a game of football for
any town in the Province, I am desirous of knowing whether this challenge
still holds good. Would you kindly
give ns full particulars in this matter,
and also what the Nelson team would require for expenses to come aud give ua
a friendly game in Vernon, or what
would the Nelson team guarantee to
give one team to come to Nelson to play
,ll.""'1 ��  K�� ���   Kindly  let us know
Whether Nelson would be willing to
give lu expensos, if we would come to
Kelson to give them a game."
It is lather warm for football but
Perhaps the local kickers will do some-
ming for the ambitious Vernon lies.

Last Sunday week a canoe belonging
to AsMey, which had been hired for the
afternoon by two men, wns lost.
The ooenpants got into ranid water
and, ups,>t (close to land fortunately). Last Son.iay tha remains of
the canoo were floating about in the
rough water at Ward's crossing.
The Nelson Miner has ifsned an il
lustrntod supplement containing views
of Nelson and various places of interest In the Slocnn and Kootenay districts including portraits of the lending men of the mining neutres. Tha
supplement is artistically turned out
and reflects credit on all engaged in its
production���Alberta Tribune.
We have reoeivod tho special Koote
nay nnmher of the Nelson Min��r and
must congratulate our contemporary on
the excellent issue which it has produced. The letter press and illustrative
work is good and the issne wll do
more to fnroibly advertise the Kootonay
jnnntry than anything that appeared
for same time. ���Golden Era.
Chares A. Prosser who has been
olerk nt the Hume hotel since it was
opened,has resigned bts'position and on
tho first of August will take over the
management of the Waverly. Mr.
Prnsser's knowledge of tho hotel business, combined with his nniverrsal
pnnnlnrity, will no doubt make the
Waverly a very prosperous house.
Yesterlay a Miner reporter asked
ohief of the fire department, sanitary
inspector, water commissioner, fire
wardeu, fire inspector, speoinl policeman Thompson if there was anything
new. He replied unanimously thnt
there was nothing. When such a
person fails is not irnioh wondet that
there is little news during the hot dog
days.
Yesterday wns the warmest day of
the year thus far. The official thermometer registered flfi, But it is a
most optimistio instrument and is so
carefully guarded from the wind and
sun that t it does not give an idea of
what us poor mortals who are not so
favored have to endure. In the snn
it wns considerably ovor one hundred
degrees nbove the chilly zero mark.
Messrs. Tozean & Janson, the well-
known Mining Engineers of 80&H1
Swithins Lane, London England who
are consulting engineers to the Wake
field mine nnd also to another compny
with interests on Vancouver Island
and East Kootenay, have owing to the
extension of their business, decide, to
open an offlctin B. 0. and considering
Nelson to be the best oentre for their
purpose, hnve token an ofllco here.
