ply as follows:
Manila, June 2(1.
To Adjutant General, Washington.
Rainy season, Little inland campaigning in Luzon. We occupy larger
portion of the Tagalog country. Lines
stretching from Imus in the south to
San Fernando in the north nearly
Hixty ruiies, and eastward into the
Laguna province. Tho insurgent armies have suffered great losses aud are
scattered. The only large force together is about four thousand in Tar-
lac province and in northern Pam-
pauga. Their scattered forces are iu
bands of 50 to 500. In other portions
Luzon, Oavite, and Kataugns provinces, thev rould assemble possibly
2,000, though demoralized from recent
defeats. Mass of tho people are terror
ized by insurgent soldiers; desire peace
aud American protection aud no longer
floe on the approach of our troops unless forced by insurgents but gladly
welcome them. Theie have boon no
rcoent burning of tbe towns. The population within our lines is becomiug
dense, and taking up laud-cultivation
extensively. They aro kept out of
Manila ns much as possible, as the
City's population is becoming too great
to be cared for. Natives south east of
Luzon are combining to drive, out the
insurgents. The only hope insurgent
leaders have is the United States aid.
Tbey proclaim the near overthrow
of preseut administration to be followed by their independence and recognition by tho United States. This is the
influence which enables them to hold
out. Much oouteutiou prevails among
them aud no civil government remains. Trade with ports not in our
possession, the former source of insurgent revenue, are now interdicted,
am not certain of the wisdom of this
policy as people in these parts are with
out hupplits or food, and merchants
are Buffering losses. We meditate restoring trado privileges although the
insurgents reap the benefits. Courts
are in successful operation under direction of able Filipinos. Alh'airs in
other islands comparatively quiet,
awaiting results in Luzon. Anxious
for trade and repeated calls for American troops recoiveil. Am givng attention to Jolo aud Palawan islands.
Americaau troops havo boon worked
to tbe limit of endurance. Volunteers
organizations have been called in
and replaced by regulars who now oo
enpy salient positions. Nebraska,
Pennsylvania, and Utah troops are
now going on board thu transports and
tlio Sixth infantry will be sent to
Negros to relievo tho California regiment. These troops are in good phys-
ioial condition. Sickness among
troopB hns increased lately, due mainly
to arduous service und climatic influences. Nothing alarming. Tbe 18
;ier cent of the command reported sick
aro half in the geueral hospital, of
whom six per cent, havo typhoid and
21 malarial fever, 12 per cent; have intestinal trouble, and the remaining 55
per cent, have various ailments, 14 of
which are wound injuries. Many officers and men who served in Cuba
break down under tho reenrrenco of
Cuban fever, and regular regiments
lately received, aro inadequately olli-
cored,    (Signed) OTIS.
Tho inadequacy in the nnmber of

many stories of hardships, Buffering
and death in tbo lower river country
this is the most shocking. It would
be iu connection with tho loss of this

DAMAGE YET UNKNOWN
A  Fashionable  Turnout to   Witness the
Launch���Large Crowd Around
the  Shipyard.
London, June 2(i. ��� Crowds of people
who had no chance or seeing anything
out of the ordinary assembled during
tbe morning in the vicinity of the
yard, nnd detachments of police appeared, to preserve order. Previous to
the launching Sir Thomas Liptou
gave a lunch at tho Savoy Hotol to the
guests invited to the ceremony. They
included Admiral Lord Charles Beres-
forri, Marquis of Dufferin, Earl and
Countess of .Clan William, Lady Russell of Killowena, the] Hon. Miss Russell, the Hon. Schombery, Kerry Dou-
nell, principal private secretary to
tbe Marquis of Salisbury, Sir George
Faudol-Phillips, former Lord Mayor
of Loudon, and Lady Philips, Herbert
Gladstoue, Major Sherman Crawford,
the Hon. W. Walsh and H. McGill
Downey, the last three lepiesenting
the Royal Ulster Yacht Club.
After the usual loyal toasts, Admiral
Beresford pioposett the success of tho
Shamrock, aud briefly stated the
struggle of times gone by, and Sir
Thomas Liptou's gallant entry into
the breach and challenge for tbe cup.
After lunch the party drove down to
Sumudas yard in two coaches, Admiral Beresford driving first. They
were tho object of muoh attention
while proceeding down the Thames
mpbaukment aud through the oity and
Whitechapel.
Ledy Russell christened the yacht,
with the customary bottle of champagne, saying: "I christen you Shamrock.. God bless you; Good luck to
vou ; May you bring back the cup."
Three cheers were then given and ou
a signal from Lady Russell the bow
and the cradle glided into the water.
After the launch the party assembled
in the adjoining tent and had tea.
The health of the Shamrock was drunk
and congratulatory spheeohes were
made.

Tho New Cup Defender Proves Swifter
Than Her Predecessor.
Newport, R. I. June 25.���The first
trial trip of the new American cup
defender Columbia which took place
in Narragausett bay today was more
succesful than either hor builders or
her owners had reason to hope. Not
only did the new boat show herself to
bo seaworthy m every particular but
sho met the old racer Defender, in a
friendly brush of a mile to windward
and vanquished her with tho greatest
ease. The race between tho flyers,
which was ovor iu��iivo minutes, was
sailed in an ^eight-knot broezo under
the same conditions, each boat carrying three lower sails, with shoot well
flattened, it took the Columbia about
three minutes, sailed from tho Defender's weather quarter, to blanket
hor, and in five minutes sho was 100
yards ahead, going past tho old onp
defender as if tho latter was anchor-
oil. Under theso oiicnmstancos it
would soom as if tho ColauibiaJ were
from 15 to 20 seconds a mile faster than
tbe Defender, and if Bhe can make
tbo same gain iu a liar I blow, the fear
for the safety of the America's cup
will bo considerably allayed.

RAN INTO AN ICEBERG.
PSESENT STATE OF
Ainsworth at Present Very
Quiet.
THE HIGHLAND GROUP
Work Being Done on the Various Properties���No-    1    and   Highland���
Oedar Oreek Properties.
From Nelsou to Ainswortb is a short
and comfortable trip ou oue of the excellent lake steamers. Howo or the
last boat leaves at 4:110 aud it is possible that business may detain you l?ter
than that lour iu whioh, case tbe only
thing to do is to go by the Moyio as far
as Balfour, thou row from Balfour to
Ainswortb. Tbis plan has its disadvantages if tho lake happens to be rough
and it is raining cats and dogs.
Ainsworth is a long eight mile row
from Balfour. Starting at 7 a m. you
will do well if yon get tbere beforo
9:30 p. m. Two unfortunate wights
essayed this route last Sunday. Tbe
rain fell in torrents, the wind blew a
hurricane.so much so tbat it was difficult to keep the light boat from tilling ; but tho wind was in the right
direction and they reached Ainsworth
soon after 9 a.  m.
Ainswcrth is not a town of perpetual
excitements and the sight of two iu
dividuals walking up the main stredt
looking as if they had been bathing
iu ovor alls seemed to be quite an
event.
The proverbial Scotch oomfort of
some "cold outside warm within," the
spoils of a friend's wardrobe and a
hasty meal soon restored peace and
comfort to the bedraggled beings,
and within half au hour thev were
ready fcr business.
For various reasons the Ainsworth
Mining camp has been rather neglected during the past two years. There
are several explanations given for this
neglect but not all entirely satisfactory. In the first place it is aaid that
the prominence of veins and ore bodies in limestone formations are merely
"pockets" ; but the existence of silver
ore bodies in limestone in Colorado
goes to show that when one ore-chute
is discovered others are almost invariably found on prospecting further
along the same line. Again many of
the most developed properties are
owned, some of them by men who can
afford to wait until thoy can make
a large turnover on their investment,
others by mining speculators who are
unable to find tbe necessary capital
lor further development themselves
aud hold on to the properties in the
hope of some big deal which rarely
comes off.
The Minister of Mines in his report
for 181)8 states that "the camp is now
assuming a business attitude such as
has not been seen for some years past.
At the present time there is not an
idle man in the camp." The experience of the last 12 months of sevoral
residents in Ainsworth hardly coincides with tbis encouraging statement.
Possibly the report is a little out of
date as it still refers to the camp by
its older name, viz., Hot Springs
Camp.
However, quite recently (within tho
last three or foir weeks) things have
undoubtedly taken a better turn and
thero are prospects of at least two large
properties being opened out within
a very short timo. Mr. Maxwell Stoveu-
ou,a well known Philadelphia lawyer,
owns one of tho most promising
groups in thu camp. For somo time
be has boon working slowly at develop-
opinent, then he decided to erect a concentrator and finally last year, ho found
additional capital, about $50,000,
which this summer he intends to expend on his properties.

St. Johns, Nfld., June 2(1.���The
British armed sloop Buzzard, while
trying to reach the French treaty
shore ou Friday, collided with an iceberg, which Btovo iu her bo .vs. By
means of oolliso'i mats and moving
the guus and heavy gear to the stem,
she made hor way baok hero safely.
She will bo docked hem tomorrow. At
tho time of the accident perfect discipline existed on board and prompt
preparations wore mudo to leave tho
ship should it prove impossible to keep
her a novo watur. It was soon, however, thnt the damage was not serious enough to endanger the vessel.
five other smaller leads tapped by the
tunnel. A new tunnel which will, it
pi prfsumed, tap these three leads and
two leads on the other side of tho hill
bas just been started fiom a point
about 00 yards above the concentrator.
This tunuel is to be 2,000 feet in
length; there will bo a double track in
it aud the ore from tbo Black Diamond
and Little Donald will be biougbt to
the concentrator through this tunnel.
Until tbo new tunnel is completed
no more ore will be takon out of tho
Highlander as, when it is completed
tho expense of mining the ore will be
considerably reduced.
From the Black Diamond about li, -
000 tous of ore have already been takeu
to tbe concentrator. The ore from tbe
Highlander group is of medium grade
never loss than (10 ounces and as high
as 400 ounces, of silver to the ton,
and averaging 40 per cent, in lead.
Mr, Stevenson estimates the average
value iu silvor at 180 tc 220 ounces.
From tho Highlander shaft to tho
concentrator is a fairly sttop descent of
about 500 yards.
At tbe present moment an Iugor-
solI-Sargeant Air Compressor is being
put in for the dual purpose of drilling
and for power for the concentrator, A
flume 5,000 feot long brings water from
Krao creok to a point on the top of tho
hill from which there is a fall to the
compressor of 1,080 feet. Custom ores
from tho Littlo Phil and tlio Tariff (an
adjoining claim leased from the Bra-
den Brothers by A. Heap, and connected with tbo concentrator by an overhead tram), are at present being treated in tbe concentrator.
About 100 yards above the null you
pass a large rank holding 12,000 gallons of water ready at anv moment in
case of fire. Tbis, Mr. Stevenson explains means not only a safeguard
against fire but also at a very small
initial cost, a largo reduction in tiro
policy premiums.
The concentrator is placed in a
stoutly constructed compact building,
erected under the supervision of Mr.
T. L. Mitchell of Sandon, and under
the over watchful eye of Mr. Stovonsou
himself. There are four jigs and two
vanners and tbo machinery is of modern type. A 100 tons of ore yielding
from $15 to $l(i tons of concentrates can
be dealt with daily. Five or six workmen's houses, a commodious manager's
office and house and au assay ollioo
complete the entourage.
Mr. Stevenson ann his two sons are
at present personally supervising the
work, the new tunnel absorbing tbe
principal part of their attention. However, they can find timo to show morn
than the usual amount of courtesy and
hospitality to enquiring visitors even
to those who ^dci.g, for their sins, to
the fourth estate. American energy
and fixity of purpose is proverbial, it
has been the origin of some of the largest mines in this Province.
Altluugli a lot of work remains to
be douo on (he Highlander group bo-
fore it oan be written of as a sure dividend payer yet its prospects are ox-
oeeaiugly enconragiug and even the
cursory stranger cannot help but heartily wish its persevering owner every
success. One day gives but little time
for visiting properties three or four
miles distant especially when thon
those miles have to be covered ou
horseback and the visitor is anything
but a Nimrod, and information from
trustworthy sources on the spot must
be to a large extent rolied on. This
will particularly apply to the brief ao
counts of the state of, and work bsing
done at the following mines within
the camp.
Leaving Mr. Stevenson's concentrator a futrher four miles along a good
wagon road brings you to tho Number
One. The ore from this mine is prm-
cially concentrating���the concentrates
averaging in value from $1100 to $000
pur ton���though a small quantity of argentiferous galena has been shipped
direct without concentration. For the
last two years tho mino has beeu a
regular shipper but this yoar work
has Iiopii discontinued owing to tho
inroad of surface water. A small
force of men arc now at work pumping aud probably, by the time tho water is expelled, tho mine will again
become a "shipper." A tunnel
nearly 800 foot long is driven,in which
is machinery for a hoist and pump.
Tho shaft is 200 foot deep.
About 50 yards from tbo mine iB a
SO ton concentrator, (two vanneis and
three sots of jigs,) which is worked by
steam. Tbis mine is owned by tbo
Britannia Mining & Milling Oompany of Nnvit Scotia.

for n 100 feet of tunneling but tho

the day had been made for the occasion it could not have been more favor-
ablo for the four oared raoe between
rews of Cornell University and the
University of Pennsylvania, and the
eight oared freshmen crews of Columbia, Cornell and Pennsylvania
which aro scheduled to be rowed at 5
aud 0 o'clock p. m. respectively, tomorrow, both for two miles. For position the Cornel! crew drew first
choice and took tbe outside course,
nearest the channel of the river, a
course which has distinctive advantages in au ebb tide. Wisconsin got
the inside course which had usually
been so disastrous to Pennsylvania,
ami whioh is too near the bank.
Pennsylvania got the course next to
Wisconsin and Columbia next to Cornell. Coach McCouville took hia bad

mises as to tho cause of it. Perhaps
an explanation will bo found iu a Press
dispatch which reads as follows:
"The Canadian Pacifio and Great
Northern have, it is understood, arrived at an agreement whereby a
joint line will be laid to connect tho
Bouudary Oreek mining camp of British Columbia with tbe Republic district in Washington. The line will be
about 85 miles long." The publio
have a poor chauoe against the railways. If one cannot have its way
against another, the two will unite
on a new way that means advantage
to both.

WALL
PAPER
Right! !
Il is very much to be regretted   that
greater interest has not been shown in
the visit of the  Western Canada Press
Association.    The members of it   will
arrive   tbis afternoon from the South,
and as far as known   at   this  writing
will continue   their -tourney   eastward
by   the   evening    boat  for  Kootenay
Landing.    No preparations   have been
made   for their   reoeption   and  entertainment. The Miner is informed that
the Canadian Paoific Compauy tendered tha corporation  the  use of one ot
their steamers, free of obarge, in order
that the visitors might be treated   to a
short   excursion    on   tbe  Lake.    For
some reason this offer was not   accepted.    It may be that   the  exoursionists
are themselves partly to blame for Nel
son's    apparent    indifference     Their
itinerary has been broken into,and tbey
do not arrive as soon   as was expected,
and it ts understood  that  the authorities   were   not  duly   advised   of  the
ohange.    Their   stay,   moreover, is  so
short it might   reasonably   have  been
concluded that it   was  scarcely worth
while to prepare   for   an official reoeption and subject the visitors to the restraint of an  official   programme.   It
may have been decided that it  would
be better   to leave them to their  own
resources, and it would not be surprising if this freedom  should prove the
most welcome attention that could  be
paid them.
The people of Nelson are glad
to see them in any oase, and hope
very sincerely that the few hours
of their stay here will be enjoyable
ones. We have a prosperous little town
of which all are proud, and it is growing rapidly. Three years ago its population was a little over two thousand ;
today it is believed to be in excess
of six thousand. That is rapid growth,
and it is not, marred by any of the
baneful influences of a boom. We ex-
peot that it will continue to grow, and
that in ten years its population will
exceed twenty thouBaud���how much
more might seem too like extravagant
expectations to estimate. It is unfortunate our visitors cannot remain long
enough to make for themselves a study
of the conditions whioh contribute to
this prosperity. They would realize
that Nelson is more than a mining
camp, and tbat even as a mining camp
it has a future of much greater promise
tban the general imagination has yet
been able co conceive.
Although short, the wish will be that
their visit will prove a pleasant one.
The Sandon Mining Review gives   a
temperate account  of   the arrest of its
editor in this   Citv,   charged with abstracting books, and papers  belonging
to   the Miners' Union of   that   place.
There does not  appear   to [ have  been
the least   ground for suspicion, and no
oue appearing against him   when   the
oase was called   it   was of course  dismissed.    It was a very stupid and  annoying mistake   on   the part of  some
one; and although discussing the matter at length in   perfeot   temper,   Mr.
Oliffe deolares his intention to   follow
it up and obtain  whatever satisfaction
tbe law will allow him.

Las Vegas, N. M., June 2(1.��� Governor Roosevelt was given a royal
speeding at 1:30 this morning on his
departure for New York. Roosevelt
and party wero accompanied to their
car by prominent citizens of tho southwest, among whom were Governor
Otero, of New Mexico, and Governor
Murphy, of Arizona. Roosevelt's appearance on the oar platform was the
signal for enthusiasm and cheering by
the large crowd assembled. In fact
where ever he appeared during his stay
here the enthusiasm was almost unbounded.
RESUMED  OPERATIONS.
The following is taken from The
Victoria Oolonist: "Something has
been said iu the newspapers about the
private life of a oertain publio man,
and an outcry has beeu made against
suoh references. The private affairs of
publio men are not legitimate subject
of newspaper discussion. Suoh has always been the position taken by The
Oolonist, and such is tbe position
which it takes now. But when a publio man makes his private affairs public, wheu he 'hoists a banner' over his
immorality, the obligation to refrain from comment ceases, aud a
sense of pnblio duty compels references
whioh are distasteful to those who mako
them and unpleasant for people to
read. But this is uot all. The Colonist takes the position that there is no
place in publio life in British Columbia for a man who is grossly immoral
in his conduct Such a mau ought no
moro to be tolerated in publio life hero
than he would bo iu any of the other
Provinces of tho Dominion. Holding
theso views The Colonist considers
any newspaper to be at liberty, if it
knows of any gross immorality on the
part of a publio man, whioh unfits
him for a position of trust, to expose
him fearlessly."
It would be a lamentable oondition
of sooiety if tbere were the least doubt
on a matter of tbis kind. A man
���who flaunts bis immorality in tho
publio gaze oan scarcely olaim the immunity which is freoly conceded to tho
mere affairs of his private life as
such. Mr. Gladstone made Parnell's
immorality a puhlio question, and the
propriety of his doing so wbb never
raised. Fifteen years ago Sir Oharles
Dilke.was in suooession to the leadership of the Liberal party; but the
people of Great Britain thought they
had some concern with bis moral character, and his prospects vanished in
the celebrated trial of 1887. It is well
to be nice, but not at the expense of
our common sense.

BOARD OF TRADE
MEETING  Of THE COUNCIL HELD
LAST NIGHT.
Provincial Mineralogist Confers With
Council- Matters for Discussion
at Eossland Meeting.
the
Kootenays, and out of tho Province.
That snoh destruction of onr birds,
all too tew at beet, can be permitted
in ;i civilized community and within
stent and sound of polieo headquarters
passes comprehension.
A meeting of the Council of the
Board of Trade was held last night.
There was a large attendance of members of the Council and several important matters were discussed.
Mr.W.F. Robertson, Provincial Mineralogist, was preseut and addressed trio
council in reference to the collection
of minerals for the Paris Exhibition.
Ho gave n short sketch of what ho proposed to do aud how he was going to
do it and then asked the Oonnoil to
suggest any additions or modifications
to his scheme. The council asked
Mr. Robertson if it was his express
wish that the Board should take in
hand the making ot the collection for
tl is district, aud if so, what amount of
tl e distri t wonld he desire theNelsi.n
Board to represent,
A long discussion followed on this
and other incidental mutters. Mr.
Kobertson then stated that he desired
that the Kelson Beard should make the
collection of minerals for the Kelson
and Goat River mining divisions.
It'was resolved that tbe making of
tho collect ion be handed over to a committee of tho counoil and Messrs.
Croasdaile, Roderick Robcrfou and
J. A. Turner were, together with the
Secretary, appointed to act ou this
committee.
A hearty vote of thanks was then
toudered to Mr. Robertson for the care
nnd courtesy he had shown to the
Board in thn matter.
The matter of the joint meeting of
the Boards of Trade at Rossland, wus
theu discussed. It was decided that
soveral mutters bo selected for special
discussion at the J'osslaud meeting the
principal of which were :
1. The encouragement of the silver-
lend industry by the imposition of increased duties ou lend and other like
products imported into Canada.
2. The question of the duty ou pig
lead manufactured in Canada, shipped
to the United Ktat'S for refining aud
then brought hack to Canada for manufacturing purposes.
11. The direct representation of the
Boundary and Kootanay districts in the
Imperial Parliament.
4. It was resolved that the council,
(at least those who were able to) do
meet the Press Association wheu they
arrive here today and show them every
civility.
Mr. W. A. Macdonald pointed
out that the supplementary estimates
would 111 a few (1'iys he passed and
that it was most important that
Nelson should not bo forgotten. Ho
therefore moved that a telegram be
sent to Mr. Hewitt Bostock asking
him if (he supplementory estimates
include the appropriation for the Nelsou Federal Buildings���which appropriation had aheady been promised to
the City,   'ihe motion was oar tied.
Tho meeting theu adjourned.
A TRUE BEAR STORY.
As a pack train wore returning to
the bead of Crawford Creek thn other
day thev heard a man shouting, apparently from some place within two or
three hundred yards from tho trail,
tine or two of iho hoys went in the
direction of the shouts and found a
prospector lodged in the upper
branches of a fir tree, while a largo
eiiiamon bear watched him iuteutly
from the foot of tho tree. At the
sight of the intruders the bear decamped and the pursued ono joined his rescuers. The authorities for the story ns
well as Ihe "treed" one decline to
give their names for publication���for
obvious roasous. Still here is the story
for what it is worth.

WESTERN    PRESS    ASOCIATION.
Mayor Neelands received a telegram
from the Western Press Association
yesterday stating Hint they would arrive at S p. ra. from Spokane today
and would leave later in the evoniug
by the steamer Moyio at 10:110. The
telegram suggested that teams be sent
to the mountain station to meet the
members ; but as they number nearly
80 it is questionable whether this can
be done. However, Mayor Neelands
aud Alderman Fletcher wero busy last
night endeavoring to formulate some
scheme for entertaining the visitors and
possibly some of tbe City Council will
goto the station to meet the party. Mr.
Croasdailo has offered to show them
round the smelter, Mr. Peters offers
the use of a steamer, and M. W. A.
Jowett offers his services as general
courier and entertainer, gratis. It is
hoped thnt something will be done in
the interests of the town to give the
visitors a welcome.
The Epworth League will hold a
consecration meeting at tho Methodist  church this evening.
Another storm like yesterday's and
a large portion of the city wharf will
go sailing i.own the river.
Mr. P. Bums is calling for fresh
tende rs for the consfiuction of the
foundation of his new block on Baker
street.
A fine cinamon bear was caught uot
long ago in a dead fall at Ainsworth.
The skin may bo Beeu hanging up outside a loghouse iu that town.
The plasterers have nearly finished
their work on the Roman Catholic
church, aud in a few days work will
he commenced on the interior decorating and finishing of the building.
Mr. Arthur Hodgins is onllng for
tenders for the erection of a residence
for Mr. Lay, the manager of tho Imperial Bank of Canada. The site chosen is at the corner of Hall and Victoria
street.
Mr. H. Ferguson Pollnk, nf Pollok
Castle, Scotland,arrived in Nelson yesterdny accompanied by Mrs. Poliok
and their infant son nnd heir. Mr. Pollok is associated with Mr. Marten in
the management of tho Kootenay Sup
ply Co.
The heavy wind storm of yesterday
did some slight damage in tho city
bnt not, as far as known very muoh.
Many snaekers had the tar paper torn
off the roofs ot their shanties. A Baker street confectioner had a large
window smashed and some of the
floating cabins along the water front
were considerably shaken up. -
The management of the Nelson Opera
House has secured the services of the
Nelson orchestra for tho uight of Juno
80 and July 1, upon which occasion a
dunce will bo given in the
House immediately after the
performances. The orchestra
speoial occasion has been
Angus Sutherland, the court having
sifiiified its intention to appo'in
hiin unless cause was shown toprevun
it. The defense then moved to quash
the citations to country commissioners, claiming that as the charges were
criminal, the constitution and statutes requiring them to be preferred
either by indictmeut, or presentment
by g*and jury, or by information
tiled hy oountry attorney, whereas
these charges come from the Attorney
General. The defence further pleaded
that the crime must be charged from
knowledge and not from simple information and belief.
Opera
Lindley
for this
   strengthened
by the addition of some first class players nnd will be the most complete organization of the kind in the Kootenay. The orchestra will also render
up-to-date selections dming the performances on Friday and Saturday
nights.
The public are assured of a successful celebration of Dominion Day,
weather or no woather. They have
this ou the pledged faith of the
management, and now let there be a
good crowd. By the way, The Minor
was ask d a short time ago on what
days the celebration wonld bo held;
it was said thit up Slocan way there
was uncertainty as to date. Friday
the ilOth aud Saturday the lsl are the
days, and both will offer good sport.
To a great many the most interesting
event of the occasion will be the Trades
Procession, which is the first on the
programme of the first day.
THE ROBSON-PENTICTON Kg,
Tho first part oi Ihe llobson-Pentic-
ton Kail way is now almost completed.
A correspondent who visited the new
line on Sunday informs us that the
line is tho most wonderful engineering feat in Canada. It has probably
cost n oro in proportion than any other
portion of the C. P. R. Thirty two
miles of mils are already la^d so that
tln< ears can now run to within a short
distance of Gladstoue. By July 20th
the rails will reach Cascado Oity.
A great saving���almost 12 miles���is
effected by tbe tunnel driven through
Bulldog mountain which has just b en
completed, thus doing away with the

The management of the Nelson

gram yesterdeay that 14 car loads of

Yesterday was the last day for putting in tenders for supplying of ties

VANDALISM.
A vandal in tbe form of a well dressed young man put in the better part of
two hours on Sunday morning shooting birds in the grove nt the head of
Viotoria street. At least fifty shots
were fired, with what results Tho
Miner reporter docs not know. As
this is not a barbarous oountry, flu re
must he a law against such wanton

Ymir, June 20.���The following
amounts have been set aBide towards
tbe construction of road and trails at
Ymir. Toward wagoj road on rn.-.in
fork of Wild Horse Oreek, $3,000;
towards wagon road on north fork of
Wild Horse- Creek, $1,500; towards
road up Porcupine Oreek, 1.500; Trail
up Hidden Oreek, $200; trail up Midge
Creek. $750.
The Government has been exceedingly liberal with us, and we appreciate
it. With the extension and building
of the above roads aud trails a number of properties will now De able to
ship their ore, besides opening up a
promising country.
Monday morning ten pack horses
loaded with supplies left for the Big
Home group which is situated on the
divide between Hidden and Porcupine creeks. This group has lately
been taken over by the Simcoe Gold
Mining & Development Oo , the group
comprises the following claims So
phie, Big Horn, Buchkorn, Green-
Hom, Powel, Gloucester, Wainwright,
S. D., and Gold Hill. Some 25 feet of
development has been commenced on
the property in the shape of a shaft,
the showing from the surface are very
promising. The width of the ledge
has not yet been ascertained, it is composed of a heavy arsenical iron and
oonper pyrites showing, assays from
the ore went $52 in gold, and $19 in
copper. The indications from the surface go to prove that the mountain upon which this group is situated was
once the scene of volcanic eruptious,
aud that the result is the large ore
body which is now disolosed. The
company's treasury is well filled, the
majority of the treasury Btock is being
taken up by Boston  capitalists.
The London & B. O. Gold Fields are
shipping clean ore to the smelter, besides concentrates whioh are daily
coming down from the mill.
little insect which fertilizes the fig.
Experimental introductions of the insect were thereupon begun, and some
of them, brought over in 1808, have
succeeded in penetrating Ihe flowers of
the Oapri tigs slowing at Fresno,
making the first stop of the experimental work a success. The bulletin
adds:
"Since tho insect has maintained
itself for au entire year, there is reason to suppose that it will continue to
breed, and that Caliornia in the
near future will bo able to place a fig
on tbe market which will possesB the
same superior flavor as that which has
given the imported Smyrna figs their
pre-eminent commercial rank."
LATE   NEWS FROM YMIR.
Ymir, June 20.���A rather disgraceful occurrence took place in the Miners'
Union Hall, Sunday evening. Rev.
S. Rhodes, Anglican minister held ser-
vico and preached on the following
subject: "Why does the Ohurch of
England observe the first day of the
week as the Sabbath.'��� Upon the reverend gentleman finishing his discourse
he was interrupted by Elder Steward,
a Seventh day adventist preacher from
Spokane, wbo has for tbe past two
weeks been conducting services in
this town, he endeavored to hold the
congregation aud made use of the following expression as persuasion in his
endeavors to hold the congregation:
"Oh wait, s;op, let us discuss this
matter," but hiB efforts were futile.
Iu view of the fact that the hall was
engaged and paid for by the Rev.
Rhodes it showed the ignorance of
the interrupter.
The agitation against incorporating
this' town has not lessened. It is safe to
perdict that nothing will be done in
this matter as there are too many up
in arms against incorporation, and
justly so, what we want is to induce
people to come iu auiongB us, not to
drive them away.
PRESENT STATE OF
AINSWORTH MINES
(Continued From First Pago.)
not enough work has been done on it
as yet. The oie from this group averages 35 ounces in silver and 70 per cent
lead.
Woodbury creek is too far off to
visit on tli3 same day as tho other
properties mentioned. There the Canadian Pacific Mining and Milling Co.,
owing possibly to an infusion of new
blood and more capital, has been
waking up lately. They own some
good properties, a good concentrator,
a splendid compressor plant and the
finest water power in tho country.
Their principal propertiea are the Bud-
weiser, Wakefield and Amazon. They
also have had surveyod a townsite at
the mouth of the creek.
Tbe Nelson Slooan Mining and Milling Co., also own some good olaims
near Wooubury Oruek.tbo Pontiao group
in particular is said by the knowing
ones to be a good thing.
Ainsworth is a pretty little town but
does not seem to have many attractions
for its mine owners. Apart from Mr.
Stevenson and his sou the place has
been lately very much neglected and
things are deadly quiet there.
Such men as have work are being
paid at the rate of $3 per day for eight-
hour shifts, the former rate being $3
for 10-bour shifts.
Apparently the demand for labor just
at present does not exceed tbe supply
and it is hardly the camp for the unemployed to betake himself to.
Those who are of a naturally morbid
disposition or easily depressed should
above all things avoid using a razor
on a wet Sunday's evening in Ainsworth, unlesB they are anxious to givo
the ooroner a job.

PROCEEDINGS OF NEW MINISTRY
Large Crowds at Onening of the Session.
Pans, June 26.���The Cabinet Ministry presented themselves to the chamber this afternoon. The chamber of
deputies was thronged and thero was
great animation at the opening of the
session when it became known that
two hostile groups, the Socialist Kadi
cals and the Democratic Leftists had
deoided to vote iu favor of the Government and tbat M. Paul Deci'ssaguse
had withdrawn his Interpellation.
Identical Btatoments wero read in the
chamber of deputies by the Premier,
M. Waldeck-Rosseau and in tho Senate
by the Minister of Justice M. Mollis.
They were as follows: The chamber
of deputies in expressing itself resolved not to support any government
but one determined to defend energetically repnblicnu institutions and assure public [order, clearly defined the
task upon the new cabinet. The minister has no other ambition than lo accomplish. The Senate by a vote of
157 to 25 approved the declaration of
the government.

The premier accepted an order of the
day moved by M. Jules Perillier, Radical Socialists reading as follows:
"The chamber approving tho declarations and acts of the government passes
the order of the day." As this is sent
the vote is being checked and it is
