GVB&TLT IMPROVED
Sidewalks and Sewers' on an
Extensive Scale.
WHAT HAS BEEN DONE
The Oity Is Now iu a Fust-Olass Condition- A Halt Has Been Galled on
Street I- provnnente.
"I've onlv been away n few w.?oks
bat its quite surprising to see what
snides the public works of the City
Iiave iiinrle during that time. There
is n broad sidewalk in the front of my
house, tbe road is (traded, new sidewalks urn all around ine, 1 will have

to Carbonate, nud a great many oilier
i nprovomonte havo beon made that

Thusspokoa Nelson citizen who rp-
tmunfl the ntbor day fnm tho Enat.
It is only those who are absent from
Ihe City for a few weeks that fully
realize the rapid manner 111 which the
streets aro being put into shape nud
the progress being nude with o'her
pr.lilie works Tho Oily Oonnoil has
decided that enough money lias tiepn
spent in tho streets, so a halt will now
he culled. A review of all (but has
heen done thus far this season would
not he out of place at this  juncture
Since operations wore commenced in
April, sidewalks havo been laid in all
parts of the Oity, Rome of the most
recent were: on Front; stieof, from
Hull to Ward, six feet wide: Ward,
in front of the Prov;iioinl gaol, eight
feel: Josephine, Baiter ro Vernon, 12
feet; Silicn, Word ti Stinlev, six

Vernon to llnkor will be rolaid to do

f let hoard walks on portions of Vernon
uud Ward streets; ten foot walks on
Baker, Ward and Kootenay streets: six
foot walks on Wnrd, Oarbonate, Viotoria, Josephine and Silica streets; a
four foot walk on Siilicn, Kootenay, Corp, Knhson nnd limps streets
Besides the sidewalks laid scores of
crossings have been put in and existing walks brought up to a state of proficiency. This work has heen no smnll
feature of the good work done by Civy
Engineer MoUnllceh and bis capable
assistant All the walks have boon
laid to grade and a huge number 0
streets have also been graded. While,
perhaps, there ore other streets that
would he Improved hv tlie laying of
sidewalks, the City enn claim to b.i ns
well supplied, if not bettor, in this
than any other interior town.
Sewerage too will receive a great
deal of attention tbis year. Over a
mile will be laid this summer which
will pit the City into a very good
condition as far ns sowers nro concerned. At present tho sowers under con-
tinct arc on Silica street from Ward to
He: riryx;    lane   betwrpn   Silica   and
"arboiiate,from Josephine to llendryx;
1'im between Onihonuto and Mill from
Ward to Cedar; Inne between Mill and
Latimer from Ward to Cedar; nn Lnti-
mer from Ward to Hall; on Victoria
fnun Ward to Josephine. Besides these
some 8.000 feet will yot be laid, the
Council deciding later ns to where
they will go. However, it is expected
that a sewer will go into Addition A.
up Kootenay from Mines Rond where
it ends now. to Knbson streot and
along the alleys between Hoover nnd
Observatory and Observatory and Knhson. The liuiioiinl bus been e.outrnuted
fl,'r.aiid is now on the way to Nelson.
Jliis will complete a very line sewerage system.
The \< nter psytom has also been ox-
teiided throughout many parts of the
City. On Qorn street a four inch
main hns been lnid from Josephine to
Kootenay ; on Stanley, 0110 from Gore
JO half 11 block past Houston ; nn Hons-

received the most attention and now
���US excellent water connection.
Another important feature in con
"leciinn witn tho extension of the wnf-
"[���works system bus been the regard
��'own for tho Oitv's tiro protection.
oeyen hydrants havo been put iu us

N ictorm, Kootenay nud Viotoria, Car-
"(ma a and Oi dnr, Gore and Kontennv,

���mi pressure that the City waterworks
��yst���m provides the placing of these
"yorants means that n very   large pnrt
of the Oity hns beeu given r. reliable
lire protection. Altogether iho work
of Ihe Oity has proceeded in 11 very
highly satisfactory manner this year
nnd tbe streets.sewers, and waterworks
are all that oonld be desired. The City
Engineer has had a hard seige of it
but ho has put through the important
improvements in an expeditious nnrl
satisfactory manner that reflects great
oiertit upon hiin. Now that tho
streot work is drawing to an end he
will havo plenty to do 111 looking after tho extension of the water supply
and eleotrio light system which will involve the expenditure of more money
than all the work outlined above.
The present Council certainly de-
servos praise for the excellent work it
has douo while in office. No small
share of tho credit is due Mayor Neelands who, since election, has devoted
almost his entire lime to the City's
business.
He is nt tho City Hall almost as constantly as iho Oity Clerk and is never
too busy with his own affairs to spend
hours in looking after the City's business. A more faithful mayor could not
havo boon lonnd among Nolson's oitizens.
GROWTH MAfflAIlD     FINAL M-WAR
MILLING AT SPOKANE.
Dissatisfaction   in    B.   C.   Regarding
the Contest Conditions.
Tbo protest that is being made in
Kosslaud and other camps in the Kootenays, the Boundary nnd the Col ville
reservation against tho $100 entrance
fee for the rock-drilling contest, to
lake place during Spokane Industrial
Exhibition, it, seems is irade in vain,
says tho Kossland Record. Messrs.
Stevenson .".nrt Burns, the champion
team of British Columbia, wrote to L.
K. Armstrong, secretary, complaining
nf the entrance fee, and received the
following answer, under dato July 28:
"I am pleased to acknowledge the
receipt of your favor of the 26th inst.,
and hasten to reply.
"Our rock-drilling contests aro but,
oue feature of 11 15-dnys' exposition,
and tbe mles th.it govern the event
seem to meet with some favor, ns we
have aln aiy hnd iissuiauces from three
double banded and five single-handed
for the contests. We haie not the
Slightest doubt that both events will
till long before the time mini red. Cf
0 u so many of these tennis wi 1 be
glad ro learn that Messrs.' Stevenson
and Burns will not, drill, as they will
be far more sure to get first money.
True. 1 ho entrance fee is high, but
the management is under many thousands of dollars expense in other ways
for tho exposition, and, after reviewing Iho matter carefully, have decided
this to be tho best plr.n. They will
not be disappointed in the number of
entries, bnt will bo if ynn do not come
down. I hope to hear from yon
apniu."
In refeiring to the above letter, Mr.
Burns says thnt the $400 <;he exposition
ninnagers nre to put up for tho contest
would not more than cover the aotual
expenses of the three winning teams,
whioh would leave the contestants 10
drill for their own money, and that
the miners of this section could make
up n purse of that kind any timo. Tbis
refers only to the three winning
teams. The others must not only lose
their time aud expenses but a $100 entrance fee. He says be doesn't wan*
iiuy of it. for the taffy the writer gives
bim nud his partner about the rejoicing of other drillers at, the newB of
tl eir not going, don't go down with
him. He says further he has seen a
grent many drilling contests, with the
tirot prize as high as $1,000; that the
entrance fee was never more than $10.
He takes with a grain of salt the statement that three double teams and five
singled drillers are assured. Ho says
the only real assnrnnco that can be
given is thnt the entrance fee is put
up, nnd that ho does n.it believe miners would nut up the amount two
months in ndvnncn, ns anything might
hapuon to prevent a man from entering a contest of ihnt kiud.
It is not liVely that any drillers will
go from Rossland, nnd probably not
from British Columbia.
BRIGANDAGE IN ITALY.
Safer to Livo in Kootenay Than in the
Land of Song.
Rome, Aug. 2.���Tho campaign
which has rosutled in the capture or
killing of M) brigands within a few
weeks hns prnctionlly stamped out the
mischief of Sardinia but. the worst of
the brigand lenders, Moni, and his

of great ability, audacity Hnd cruelty.
His baud has killed 111 persons within
the pnst eight years and Ihero is now
a reward of 20,000 lira upon his head ;
but, despite tho fact that the military
forces of Sardinia am combined to

affixed to a churoh door near Sassnri,
proclaiming that the brigand duclnred

When King Humbert, visited Sardinia recently, Moni addressed a letter
to his majosty asking foi safe conduct

It has frequently been written and
said that one ot the features of Nelson,
which more particularly distinguishes
it from a mining town, is the permanent nud tasteful maimer in which the
principal houses of business and residences are built.
There has never been a building
boom in Nolson, but a quiet steady
growth in always going on.
During the last two or three months
some important additions to Baker
street have been commenced, notably
the Hudson's Bay building and the
Buns of Montreal. Owing to a breakdown of the cars which were bringing
the iron beams for Iho fire pioof floor,

The buiiliiig apart from its utility
will bo an exceedingly handsome one.
Mr. Hodgins has also commenced the
plans for Mr. T. Madden's new brick
building. This will be a two story
erection moasnii.ig 120 by 80 feet, and
will adjoin tht Madden House. Excavating has been commenced, but the
workmen wero flooded out owing to
tbe overflow from the creek in Ward
Streef. The ground floor will consist
of ono large store 70 bv 28 feet nnd 011

Duggan Is Himself Again,  aud Showed
the United Statei Boat the Way
Over tbe Course-
Dorvnl, Que., Aug. 2. ���Today was another Giencairn day, the Cnnadinu
boat winning her second and tho fourth
race for tne Seawanhaka Cup. During
the race thorn wero all kinds of breezeB
from east to. west and north to south
aud it was difficult to say at times just
which boat had the advantage as to
wind. Undoubtedly, however, D-.ig-
gan's able seamanship told well 111
olaeing the Giencairn 5 :U0 ahead of the
American oh llenger at the finish ; the
excitement in local sporting circles as
to the outcome of tomorrow's race,
now that both boats have two wins to
the good, is intouse. The wind was
rather light as the whistle sounded
for the start nt one hour and 55 minutes Constance succeeded in crossing
tho line nt 1:55;35, Giencairn foi-
owing two seconds later siunrlly crept
lmo windward, and ran up her teaching jib nnd took her wind nway and
left her standing. Constance's sails,
however, soon began to fill up again
and she run under Giencairn's stern,
but Giencairn by clever seamanship
got abend nud kept right up to the
first buoy and thus, by being cleverly
sailed, Giencairn rounded the buoy
one minute and 50 seconds ahead of
Constance, having thus gained oue minute 58 seconds from ihe start from the
first to the second buoy. It was a bent
to windward, hut the wind, which was
from the south west, was light and
Glenoairn steadily drew awr.v from
C aistaine, she making noor headway
in tho lulls, which occurred between
Iho short puffs of wind. Giencairn
rounded tho second buoy of the first
round three minutes aud 118 seconds,
ahead ot tho American boat and had
her spinnaker set in short time. Gon-
Ktauue.hud lost 42 seconds ou this leg
when alio rounded the buoy but tbe
rapidity with which she had set out
her spinaker to port was favorablly
commented upon. This leg was before
the wind nnd Constance did so well
as to loso only 21) seconds on a course
of favor to Giencairn which comoleted
the first round three minutes seven
seconds ahead of her rival. Meantime
heavy clouds formed iu the west and
thunder and lightning was almost constant and both boats had to reof iu anticipation of a big storm aud most of
the small pleasure boats ran for shelter
from the siorm, but it did not turn
out as bad as expected. By tho time
tho boats were running for tbe first
luioy on tho second round the wind went
half way round the compass 1 ml ii was
a reach sail to starboard 'iho rain
enme down again and it wns diffioult
10 see the boats in the mist. It soon
began to lie seen that Constance wns
now gainiug on her rival and when
she rounded the buoy she had reduced
tho length between her and Giencairn
hy Jlti seconds. The wind however,
kept dropping little by little and Giencairn agniu gained one minute, two
seconds on this leg round the seoond
buoy, second round, three minutes aud
!i!l seconds abend of Constance. Instead of running boforo the wind both
bouts now tucked to the starting buoy.
Tho storm was increasing but it could
be seen that Constance was again gain
ing aud in completing the second round
of tho course, she reduced ber lend by
24 seconds on the last leg. After
turning tbe stnrtmg buoy Bnd reaching op to the first buoy Constanco evidently msonlculated in some way ns
Glc-uoairn simply appeared to run
away from ber and rounded the buoy
seven minutes 2!l seconds ahead, bav
ing gained four minutes 18 seconds on
the leg. Just before reaching this bulfy'
on the south shore the mist was so
heavy that the boats could not bo distinguished for some seconds, Cm
stance disappearing in the mist for
quite a littlo while. Constance, however, mado a gain of two minutes
three seconds on Iho eighth lee, both
hunts carrying full sail in a fresh
northwest breeze, Glencnim rounded
the second buoy on the lust round at
4 0-1:05 being live minutes 20 soconris
auond of Ocnetauoe.
Tho Ciuiartian boat did not make
such a favorable leg for the last but
placed an additional 111 Beoonds between
her and Constanco, finishing at
���I :15:15, winning the rnco by live min-
ntos, 80 seconds.
Thero was all kinds of weather in today's raco and judging fiom appear-
nnces, the seamanship ot the Glenoairn excelled that of her rivnl and tbe

nice topsail breze and late this afternoon tlie new boat was towed up to her
boilder's works at Bristol a total wreck
above dejks. Her new sleel main
mast was bent double just about half
way between the deck and mast head,
nud all that remained of her magnificent suread of canvass uud specially
made rigging was piled up iu a lump
about the stump nf iho uiast. Practically all that remained were tho steel
boom and gait' and tbe bowsprit, and
even gall's were damaged a trifle. The
dismasting of Columbia occurred lcS
than an hour after tho new nud old
cup defenders stnrted on their bent out
to a flag boat off the north end of
Block Island, when the two contestants
had covered about half the distance.
Columiba was leading at the time and
was steadily drawing awny from her

the water, when there was a sound of
breaking spars aloft and in a,, instant
the topmast went crashing down to leeward carrying with it the fine new
club-topsail nnd small jib-topsail.
Fortonately the hands escapod injury.
Mr. Iselin ano Mate Allen had the
closest call of all. The discipline was
exoellent, not a man leaving his place
until Cant. Barr gave orders to clear
away the wreckage. After looking the
wreck over carefully, it was seen that
the port spreader had broken upward

causing tbe topmaBt to break off.

THE MONTREAL BANKS
Ville Marie and Hochelaga Crises - Blair's
Railway Bill���The Newfoundland
Fishe ies Question-
Ottawa, Ont, Aug. 2.���The date of
prorogation of Parliament has again
been fixed. It has been deoided to gJt
all work of the session through this
week and to close the House on Monday. There need bo no difficulty in
doing this as the principal items in
���he supplementary are all through
and the only things that remain aie
the railway subsidies.
At a meeting of the railway oommittee today, another disoussion took place
on Mr. Blair's railway bill. Only
two important clauses bave been
dropped, At a conference between
the Premier, Haggart, Blair and Tupper, it was decided, in order to olose
the session, to drop clause five for tbe
preseot. This is the clause whioh provides for the adoption of one set of
rules and regulations for all roads.
Mr. Blair hoped that they would be
able to put through clause four respecting the location of railway stations by
the Governor-Goneral-in-Counoil. Mr.
Haggart offered a strong resistance to
this clause and finally Mr. Blair received a letter from the Premier, who
wns in the House stating that at another conference with Sir Charles be
learned that the opposition wonld use
all kinds of obstruction to prevent the
3I11UHO going through this session.
The result wus that both clauses were

Montreal, Aug. 2 ���The run on La
Bauqne in tho Hocholaga continued for
a time this morning in a mild form.
Depositors from the country stampeded and clerks at the head office
were kopt busy after die arrival of the
trains. The situation as regards the
Ville Mario and tbe Jaoquos Oartier
bunks is uuohangeri.
Montreal, Aug. 2,���H. Eller of Paterson, N J., 22 yearB of age, jumped
overboard from tbe Elder Dempster
steamship Yola as that vessel was passing Oraeu Island, 19 miles below Quebec yesterday afternoon. A boat was
lowered nnd a careful search made for
him but he oould not he found and it
is supposed that he was drowned. At
the timo the ship was about two
miles from land in tho last westbound
trip of the Yola, Eller was found as a
stowaway and was reslupped at London for the east bound trip as a seaman. He has a brother in Pateison,
N. J., and a sister in New York.
St. Johns, Nfld., Aug. 2.���The
French warship Mauohe arrived here
tonight from the rrnnty coast. Por
the last month she has been pair tiling the cod fishing areas near tbe
Straits of Belle Isle, driving away tbe
NewfoundlAUtl craft that wero fishing
thero. Bitter disappointment prevails
in the colony over the recent deel ration of Mr. Chamberlain, thelmpiral
Secretary of Slain for the Colonies,
that thn negotiations for a settlement
of tho treaty shore dispute are not
likely to be concluded before next cession of the Imperial Parliament.
Montreal, Que., Aug. 2.��� (Later).���
The uctiuii id the Bamiue Hochelaga
yesterday afternoon in promptly meeting the demands of its timid depositors had a good effoot todav and there
wero but few more than tin ordinaly
withdrawals. The panto is now regarded as over. It nover extended to
the stronger English institutions. On
the stock eTchango thore was a recovery of valuos equal to and, in many
cases beyond yoi  irday's fall.
BELGIAN WAR MINISTER.
Brussols, Aug. 2.���The delay, in
forming u new cabinet is due to the
diiliulty experienced in seleoting anew

NELSON. B. C.
THE MINISTERIAL CRISIS.
Mr. Martin's resignation ought to
have simplified the situation and no
doubt did ;but it has hen very far from
smoothing it out and leaving Mr.
Semlin without care or anxiety for the
tiiture. A special dispatch to The
Miner contains the rather sensational
intelligence that tho Premier has gone
to the Opposition for an Attorney General, aud has been informed that a
condition ot acceptance was tbe
repeal of certain legislation that is
not. regarded as in the publio interests.
To accept the condition would be an
act of self-condemnation, and Mr.
Srinlin is not heroic enough for that.
Outside of the Opposition an Attoruey-
Geueral does not Beem at present available, and as ono must be supplied the
Premier finds himself in the awkward
position of being asked to do the impossible, with his own resignation as
tho only alternative. The situation is
becoming extremely critical, and anything may happen within trio next few
davs.
BUNGLING   IN ATLIN.
Mr. D. H.  Macdowall, at one time a
m jinbur of the  Dominion   Parliament
for   the   Saskatchewan   division  and
now a resident of  this   Province,   has
written a lotter to Tho Toronto  Globe
to expose what he regards us abuses in
connection with the  administratiou of
affairs in   the   Atliu country.    He refrains  from expressing  any opinion of
tbe legislation   to  exclude   aliens, but
of the bungling that has   followed  on
the trail of it ho gives   some   convincing evidence from his own experience.
We   quote:   "In tho spring   of 1897 I
located   in   this   Proviuce,    and about
the oud of January,  1899, left Viotoria
for the Atliu   district, the   tlip  from
Skagway, Alaska, being made over the
snow aud ice  at  great  risk, difficulty
and    expense.        After       prospecting
through the distrijt I left for tho Coast
in March,    haviug  in   tho   meantime
become interested in vaiiouB properties
���which myself and   my associates, who
wore free miners aud original looaters,
proposed lo work as   a joint undertaking, by means of an Incorporated oompany, it being only by a union of our individual resources that practical results
could be  obtained.    To our   utter   astonishment tho Provincial Government
refused to issue to our company a miner's certificate, although every possible
assurance was given that it wbb a Canadian undertaking, pure   and   simple;
that every member was a   British subject, and that  the  membership would
at all times   bo   restricted   to   British
subjects.    The decision of the Govern
ment absolutely prevents ns from joining nur resouics to   work   our  claims
aud  from   obtaining   further  capital
should it bo   requisite,    The  enclosed
correspondence will show you tho longth
to which we   werj preparod    to go   in
order to  satisfy the requirements as to
citi/.ensliip.    While   1   havo dealt thus
in detail   with   the    enterprise  with
���which I am personally comi"cled,l do so
merely by way   of Illustration, for the
course pursued liy the   Government in
this instance is tho sumo   so far as enn
be learned as that pursued in all  casus
which have so far nrlsen, and your attention is drawn to the matter  on tbo
broad ground that Iho policy complained of is one which  prevents Canadians
in Canada from currying   on a   legitimate business,   having for its objeot
the development of nutmul Canadian
resources along lawful lines. Tho
effect will bo to stifle tho business of
tho Jistrict, aud thereby to injure not
only the persons uioie directly interested in mining but tho Canadian
merchants and manufacturers who
would otherwise find a profitable mar
kot capable of enormous development. "
When the Lieutenant Governor was
in Atlin ho promised to inquiro iuto
the grievances and tho cases of mismanagement and had administration,
and to take steps on his return to have
them corrected. This complaint of Mr.
Maodowall'S is an illustration of one
of the worst. There is scarcely a matter of any seriousness to which the
present Government bavu put a hand
that thoy havo not involved in some
sort of coufusiou and miHcliiof,
���verywhero m the world. The Tnui^
.nil Qitlanders arc being hardly used
>y those in authority there, and it is
untnral Canadian sympathy should go
i it to them. They are being oppressed
tiv* unjust exactions, and the Parliament of the Republic has refused thorn
lie franchise except on impossible or
inreasonuble conditions. \S'e know
ihut these are genuine grievances, for
ihev have been discussed in solemn
0 inference by u British commissioner
Hid the President of the Transvaal,
ind for weeks past it has beeu understood that Great Biiraiu is prepared to
iro to war with the Boers unless they
.tive relief to tho situation by redressing tbem. tGreat Britain knows too
well what war is to go into it lightly
>r without good cunse, aud we may bo
sore, therefore, that those grievances
are real ones aud quite as serious as
they are real. At this distance it is
not easy to determine whioh is the
jiost serious, but the one of which
most is made is that of the franchise.
The Uitlanders are being taxed right
and loft, and are not given a voice in
the government of the country. That
ippeuls to the compassion of tho House
it Ottawa, and hence tho resolutioj.
At the time this resolution was being passed in the Lower House, the
Upper wns engaged in putting through
an Act to amend tho enactment respecting the Yukon Council This
Council is tbe germ ot a local Parliament, such as we have in this Province. At present it is mainly appointive, but in time no tlnuhr it will become wholly elective. The amendments introduced by Senator Mills,
who is Minister ot Justice ana leadir
for tbo Government in the Uppir
House, provided that only natural born
and naturalized Briti h subjects who
Inve been continuously resident in the
Yukon for twelve months shall have the
right to vote for a member of the Council. The Minister eit mated that Ibeie is
a popula ion tf tv.e ity liv thousand in
the Yukon conntiy, of w oom uot more
than   0 fifth    arc    liritish   subjfCls.
Tbe four fifths are   Citlandors, prinei
pally Americans.
Now, here is the spectacle we have:
While oue branch of the Canadian
Parliament is voting sympathy for the
Uitlanders if the Transvaal because
they are being denied the franchise, tbe
othor is passing legislation to insure
that the Uitlanders of the Y'ukon shall
not bo given the franchise. Thero aro
a good many thiugs to uncover and
examine before wo can reconcile these
two positions. Tho Miner is not saying that thoy cannot be reconoil d ; tint
in the popclar mind there is great in
dignaiion against President Kruger
and his Read because thoy subject
Englishmen to the injustice of taxa
tion without representation, and at the
same timo our own Parliament is providing that Americans shall be taxed
in the Yukon but shall have no voice
in tbe government of the country.
Many of us might profitably Inquire
why thero should uot ho as much indignation in tho one case ns in the
oilier. True, we give Americans who
have b3en a year in residence the privilege of becoming naturalised ; but why
should Oom Paul be compelled to naturalise foreigners against his will,
and, no doubt as he persuades himself,
contrary to the public policy of the
"ountry he governs-
to the puidio convenience. There are
other iini rnvi n.i i i- Hint i e more
pressing thou the streets, frr 11 'V have

The quest ion of fire pioteetimi his to

A BKNSTBLE SUGGESTION.
Mr.   CieafO   Thinks   Iho Oity   Shu dd
Soci.ro Some Power at Boiin'i r    n.
Editor  if Tbo Winer :
Sir-Having bad Iho p!o:i��'.;ie of an
outing tho other day with some
friends, 1 visited Bouningtou Palls,
Seeing tho immense power there going
to waste, it occurred to me what a
most deoided advantage it would b�� if
the Municipality of the Oity of Nolson took immediate steps to secure pro-
ptletary rights controlling some of tbat
valuable power; the latter would only
have to be transmitted 1 I miles. Such
a Btep would be a sure foundation in
milking Nelson a manufacturing centre ; it is now a wholesale and railway
centre.
Orillia, a small but energetic Eastern town, secured such power from
tho falls of the Severn river with
wonderful results; it transmits the
same a much longer distance than is required in our case. I need not speak
of Buffalo's enormously successful enterprise in oomnneotion with Niagara
Falls. If wo could not make use of
any of the power uow, it would be a
precautionary measure for the  future.
I venture to think this is not any
"boo in the bonnet" idea.

PASSING OP THE WHISTLE.
Hereafter   the   Steamboat   Companies
Will Make Less Noise.
A utw evidence of Nelson's metropolitan propensities bus .iust come to
liuht. The steamors which ply be-
twnii Nelson and tbe lake ports will
hereafter blow their infernal whistles
just once before departing, nud that
once will be a short, sharp toot that
will no' sind frightful echoes Ohasir,R
themselves through tho surrounding
lulls. The steamboat companies have
thus shown themselves to ho kepp-
nin up willi the march of progress.
They realize that every man in this
great ami glorious oountry has mnde
euoiigli money to carry a watch and
should therefore know .just when the
bontH are to sail, Heretofore it bus
been customary to blow three whistles,
one long, agonizing screech half an
hour beforo leaving time, another short
nnd bombastic explosion live minutes
before that time and one little inoffensive toot just beforo the gangplank was
pulled in. Chare hns been no excuse
for this extravagance in tlie use of
steam and entire disregard of sensitivo
ears but somehow it been me the custom
nud was keot tip. Kaslo was a great
siilHnr, About si; in the morning
tlio International would rend nut a
l.untKTo.iig blast tl at iet every dog
in the lown larking. By tbe time it
wameany to pull out the 0. P K.
boat would open its t-hrottle nnd keep
up the unlet until 7:110 when there
was little use of the citizens endeavoring to get more sbeo. But it's nil
over now and Ihe era of sleepless mornings has pissed away. Only tbe five
minute whistle will hereafter be
Hounded and it will bo a nice little
blast (hat no one enn object to. If
anyone was in the habit, of waiting
for the whistles beforo going to the
boats he will have to change bis ways.
The steamer International has already
adopted the steam saving system and
the 0, p, K, boats will follow suit in
u few days.

The Miner was informed yesterday

In the window of the Thomson
Stationery company is a kodak picture
tbat is curiosity. It is the first
photo taken by a novice, and is a fishing scene on tho Kootenay river near
Bouiiingtoii Falls. There are two fig -
nres in the picture. Oue is apparently
picking no fish from the bottom of the
river which flows around nud above
the angler. In the other figure the
lady is comfortably seated on a rock
holding a bamboo pole,while the water
rises to the height of her chin. The
secret is that two exposures were taken
from different points but on the same
plate.

London, Aug. 2.���The Bull Mall Gazette says that the choice of Sail de la
llanueutiiou ut Rennes as to the place
of hclding the Dreyfus court martial
is a veritable calamity ; tho ceiling of
the room is low being only sbj feet
high and no body except the members
of the court und tho witneses will be
able to hear a word. The journalists
will be ranged In sixteen rows behind
the witnesses and owing to the execrable acoustics of ball, only those in
the first rows or two can follow the
procceodings, making it impossible to
report the trial. There is still time,
says the Gazette, lo change thu place
of the trial to the Lyice,whioh is close
to tho prison aud hauoy in other respects, as well as being commodious
and comfortable, and it is hoped that
thu authorities will listen to the
prayer of tbo press for this change.
