Mr. L. A. Hnmiton,   land   commissioner for the O. P. R., while   in  the
Oity yesterday looked into tbe   rocrea-
ilon ground mutter and it   looks  now
as if this question will soon be settled.
It is  generally   recognized    tbat the
present mounds aro unsuitable for  the
purpose of athletio   snorts on  i ocount
of its location and size and also beoause
it will before long be required lor sites
for wnrehonsos,   etc., as it   is   iu   the
part of the Oity that must be UBed   for
such purposes.    It has been the idea of
somo of   the  Aldermen   to   trade  the
present lois fcr a suitable   site   owned
iiy the O. P. R. in the  south   western
part oi the City.    Tbo   most nvailable
plot seems to be  that on   Mines  road
across   tho   valley.    There   is   a level
piece of ground there much larger thau

is quite handy to ebo business portion.
When the street car liuo runs to  it   as
it certainly will when the grounds are
opened,  it will  he within a few minutes of the post ofllco.    Mr.   Hamilton
will send one of bis  surveyors to take

Tho importance to this City in having mi additional line, added to the

THE JUDGMENT IN FULL.
Mr. Justice Drnko Decision in Forster
vs. 0. P. R.
Tho Minor's telegrams some days ago
gave tlio gist of Mr. Justice Drake's
decision in Porster vs. 0. P. R., a
case arising out of a dispute over the
construction of a wharf at Kaslo.
The following is a copy of His Lordship's judgment:
"The facts are shortly these: The
plaintiff, through his predecessors in
tide, is owner in fe�� of Lot 208, Group
RECONCILED TO HIS FATE.
The Condemned Murderer  of   Patrick
Ryan Preparing   For Death
Counsol   for   Pasto, the Italian thnt
ie under sentonce of death for tbe murder of Patrick Ryan at Cranbrook, has
given   up the idea   of   applying for  a
nsw trial and the prisoner has been informed that he  must die.   He  views
the matter very philosophically,saying
that  he   must   Oie sometime   anyway
and it he does   not die   now   he  will
lntei*.    That is abont all be has to  say
about his impending fate.    Pasto is always under the eye  of a guard.   Two
men have twelve  honr   shifts, sitting
at the door of his cell and  to  thoin be
has little to say.    He   is   in   splendid
health, sleeps well and  eats   heartily.

the boundary on tho easterly side as
an being Kootenay Lake. A part of
this lot has been laid out as a town
site. A grout difference exists between
high and low wuter mnrk; the Jake is
stated io have as much ns fourteen feet
und upwards vertical rise. The plaintiff olaims, as riparian owner, the
right m lay out lots on the land laid
hare at low water, and to exclude
nny one else from erecting any structure which will interfere with the
free access to the water.
"The defendants are owners of two
lots in this townsite, partly above high
water mark, and they are erecting a
wharf for tho use of thoir own steam

laid out in town lots.
"Tho defendants contend that from
tho Hold notes of the survoyor who
made tho survey on which the Crown
grant was issued, it is apparent that
the high water line was taken at the
boundary, there being abont four hundred feet between this line and low
water iu places; and further, that the
rights to foreshore belong to tbo Dominion and uot to the Province.

Tne final stage in the Traves prose-
ontion wns reached yesterday when the
Magistrate gave his deoisiou. Mr.
Grease read his judgment. Evidently
he had given great care nnd consideration to the oaso for his conclusions
though brief were clear and conoise.
Shortly reviewing the ciroumstanoes
of the case, he then only deal1- with
those points which, to his mind, had
any direct bearing on the issue.
The following   is a verbatim   rep:rt
of his decision:
"The Municipality   of tho  City   of
Nelson has lately gone to  considerable
trouble and   expense iu having its bylaws   revised   and   consolidated,    and
this has been effected   by   the   aid  of
experieucod counsol. To deolure Revised By-law No. 7 invalid,   a clear oaso
must be made out.   Mr. E. 0. Traves,
according  to the evideuco, hns erected
a structure  on   Lot 7, Block 9, in tho
Oity of Nolson, said lot boing part  of
subdivision of Lot !I5, Group 1, Kootenay District, whioh structure  adjoins
the Broken Hill Block, erected on said
Lot 7, and  fronts   on   Ward   street, a
nrinoipal streot in said   city.    On  the
Hth inst. the walls were up  aud   tbe I Borden
roof on.   It is a frame oue ..ml   roofed
wiih tin ;its outside covering is rustic;
its size is 10 feet by 40 feet aud   5 f set
high   from   ground   sill.    This I consider to be a building and an   addition
to  the   Broken   Hill   Block���a  frame
building now in existence.   No authority in   writing   was obtained by  Mr.
Traves  from   the Fire Wardens    or
Building Inspector for tbe additions to
and alterations in the wy   of reparis
or otherwise of the Broken Hill Block.
The two   oruoinl  sections of   the   Bylaw nro 18 and 20 ,vhich are (18) "No
wooden   building   *   *   *     shall   be
erected within   the Fire Limits,   and
uo alterations to any existing buildings
either in the way of repairs or  otherwise, unless the authority in   writing
of the Pire Wardens and Building  Inspector   *   *   *   be   first   obtained,"
(20) "That subject to section 18, addi
tions   may   be   constructed   to frame
buildings  now in  existence,   such   to
have an outside covering of corrugated
iron   *   *   *   not more than one story

of wood.    Sectiou   20 treats ot  frame J
buildings.    A   distinction   was sought
ro be drawn in the   argument between
wooden and   frame   buildings.   Wood
en   and   frame  buildings   are   synon-
moiis terms in the building trade  and
I regard   them   as  such.     Stress was
laid in argument that the oity  haB  no
power to define fire limits.   Where the
Munioipial  Clauses Act by section 50,
sub-seonou 28 speaks of wooden buildings  within   the   fire liimts   and   of
other buildings in  specified   parts    of
the  Municipality  I   take   that powor
is    intended   to    be    and   is   given
a Municipality to  define   what   these
fiie limit   sshall   be.    In   reference to
the objections   to the penal clause,   to
the by-law,  I   hold   that   under  subsections 42 nnd 41) of   section 50, Municipal Clauses   Act  the penal clause is
good.    Seotion 81 of  said aot and   Re

according to the information, has heon
committed ; it was   deliberate   and   in

the only easo   before   me to   consider.

Chicago,   July 20. ���A Tribune special from Washington  says:   "Senator
Fairbanks of the   Joint High Commission had a conference   with  President
McKinley   and   Secretary Hay at  the
White House on the Alaskan boundary
dispute.   Tbe   Senntor    reports  that
from personal observation  he is firmly
oonviuced  that the contentions made
by this Government are cornet and if
the modus vivendi   is  agreed  upon It
must be upon the  terms of tho United
States.   Senator Fairbanks has  been
all over the country in  the vicinity of
Klukwau,   Dyea,    Skagway  and  tbe
territory in   dispute   and finds incontrovertible   evidence   that the contentions of this Government are   correct.
It was said that this Government will
not yield a foot   of   territory and that
unless the British Government agrees
upou a  modus   vivendi  on   the terms
whicii this   Government offered  tbere
will bo no meeting of  the Joint High
commission on August   2.    While Senator Fairbanks declined   to discuss the
subject of the position occupied by the
Canadiian    polioe,   because   he   may
again be culled upon to  deal   witb the
Alaskan question, it wns learned   that
members of this force are now  in   tho
Porcupine region   v.'hich    unquestionably  belongs   to    this    Government.
The orders whioh   were given   some
time ago for sending American   troops
to Pyramid  Harbor  have not been rescinded, but are still held in abeyance
at the  request of the   British Government.    In view of the latest  information   furnished    the    State    Department   on   this   point.   It   would   be
surprising   if    tho   British   Government  is   not notified  that  Amerioan
troops would be sent   to Pyramid Harbor whether   Great Britain objects  or
not.    The   Government  is determined
to protect the interests   of   Americana
no  matter  what the position   of the
British Government may  be."

NELSON. B. C.
A PUBLIC NUISANCE
Some months ago the suggestion was
made that  a   conference ot the Kootenay   Boards of Trado  be held  during
the summer, with Rossland as the place
of meeting.    It  was   thought   that  a
number of subjects of mutual  luterest
might bo discussed, to   the  advantage
of all  concerned.   The suggestion met
with favor, and in due   course the respective Boards were  invited to name
their representatives; at tho same time
tbey were asked to recommend subjects
that might profitably be brought to the
notice of the conference.   The Council
of the Nelson Board of Trade approved
of the suggestion   and   resolved to accept  tho invitation ;   they  nominated
the delegates who  were   to   represent
tbe Board,and rocommended some subjects for disoussion. Tht, result of their
deliberations was to be submitted to  a
meeting of the Board for ratification,
and to that  end  a meeting was called
in the  usual  way.    The    proceedings
wero regarded as   merely formal, however, and in  consequence   there was a
small   attendance.    But   it  developed
that there was a  majority  who were
opposed to tbe recommendations of the
Council.   A   busybody, who  is  never
happy excepting   when  deep in  some
misohief, bad tnken the pains to dru.ii
up a dozen otherB   who were either in
sympathy with him  or were deceived
as to  the actual purpose;  and,   when
the meeting   convened, thiB  majority
prooeeded  to veto  everything  recommended   by   the  Counoil   and which
the  more   intelligent  members of tbe
Board  had taken for granted would be
endorsed without question.
It was a paoked meeting, without
any higher purpose than that of ob-
tructiou. As the result of its proceedings rendered nugatory everything
that had heen done towards promoting
the conference, the members of tbe
Board who felt their responsibility as
represtentative business men of Nelson realised that it would never do to
lot the matter rest in its then unsatis
fictory state, and another meeting was
o riled to reconsider the whole question.
This second meeting was well attended, and it resolved that tbe Nolson
Board shonld participate in the conference, and tbat the delegates ap-
nointed to it should be at liberty to
biing up and disouss any subject tbey
counidored to be of interest to tbis
district. It went further and expressly
rescinded the contrary resolutions of
the preoeding meeting. Nothing less
would have done. The reputation of
both the City and the Board was involved, and if their common sense nud
intelligence were not to be subject to
siiBpioion it was necessary to vindicate
them.   This the Board  did.
The President of tbe Board, who   is
esteemed as one of  the  most  valuable
and highly respected of the citizens ot
Nelsou, haB ever since beeu  made the
target for  vulgar   abuBe through   Mr.
John   Houston's newspaper,   The Tribune.    This   Mr.   Houston   was    the
leader iu tbe   inexplicable  aud wholly
senseless opposition, an  opposition for
wbich no one bas advanced or can ad-
vanoe'a   single reason that will boar a
momont's   consideration ; and   because
tbe better element of the Board   interfered to disappoint him in his attempt
at    wilful  disturbance,   he   uses  his
newspaper as  a bludgeon with wbich
to berate tbe   President, and  tbrongb
him those who supported  him.    That
appears to be the chief purpose of  bis
newspaper���to eerve as  a  vehicle  for
the    animosity    of  its  editor.    Any
citizen wbo fails to Bee as Mr. Houston
tees, to think as  Mr. Houston thinks,
and   to   do  as   Mr.    Houston   desires
him to do, may reckon with oonfldenoe
on some vulgar abuBe through Tbe Tribune.     A man of that kind   is a pest
to   a  respectable   community, bnt as
there iB no law for bis forcible suppres
son be has   to  be  endured.    All  that
respseotable oitizens can do   is   to   ignore him, and if they will  do this ho
and his paper will soon siuk into merited oblivion.
entirely satisfactory in the present
case. If ibe buildings aie to eorw
the public convenience, they must be
located somewhere noar the busiuess
oeutre of the City, and the site alone
wll eat ��o large a hole in the fifteen
thousand that the portion loft for the
struotuie will hunlly provide accom
modatiou suitable to the dignity and
importance of the place However,
wo must make the best of It There
will be a flno race among Government
supporters who have property to dispose of, to see which ahull be successful in effecting u sale. Mny the mau
with tbe best site win The sale completed, the Government should be
urged to prepare plans nt once nnd
have the work put iu bund. The few
thousands remaining mny not be
enough, but Canadian taxpayers know
that there nre snch things as extras,
and if well manipulated there is uo
reason why the extras in this oaso may
not exceed the coutract prico. Tho
half loaf is better than no broad in any
event, and OHpocially is it better
wheu thero is opportunity for it to
swell iuto a  full loaf.
The suggestion of evolving a park
out of a dumping grouud may not be
tho most attractive, but Mr. Hamilton
is unquestionably right in sayiug that
the present recreation grounds will bo
required for something more serious before many years. If wo look ahead as
far aud as intelligently as we are expeoted to do, the City will not be allowed to tie itself down to those
grounds or to expend any considerable
sum in improving them. We want
our park of the future in a more suitable plaoe, and wisdom suggests that
we cannot begin to shape our plans
for it too soon.

u
����������������������������������������������������������������
Mr. Chadbourn returned from Ymir
yesterday where he has been for tbe
past few days being collecting specimens of ore for the B. C. exhibit at
the forthcoming Paris exhibition.
Mr. Chadbourn brought back with bim
ores from 15 different mines and prospects in tbe Ymir camp. The Dundee
and Tauiarac mineB have promised to
send him picked Barnples ami Mt. Roderick Robertsou is having a good exhibit from tbe Ymir mine arranged.
The size of the apecimeus vary, those
from prospects are from six to eight
inches cubic measure, but from the
actual working mines larger pieces
are taken.
Some excellent specimens have been
sent down from the Silver King weighing all about 800 pounds. Mr. Chadbourn leaves tomorrow for Port Hill
and Creston from wbich place he will
set about obtaining specimens from tbe
Goat River distitct. He has already
sent a man up to the White Grouse
for that purpose.
Mr. Cbndbourn complains of the lack
of interest which is being taken in the
matter. In some cases he has been
promised specimens and lias been unable to obtain them. Very few seem
ready to come forward and assist r im
by volujtarily ottering to supply bim
with specimens It is impossible for
one mau to visit all the mines and
prospects personally. Good specimens
will help to increase tbe reputation of
a mine so that instead of supplying
them as a personal favor to Mr. Chadbourn the mine owners should be glad
to have their specimens accepted. If
there are any owners of mines or prospects who desire to contribute towards
the exhibit they most send in their
specimens to Mr. Chadbourn before
August 1.

The favorable result of a shipment
of some 1(50 tons of ore from the Sunshine and Silver Cup properties, in the
Trout Lake mining district, has been
announced. These mines, together
with the adjoining claiuiB. are the
property of the Sunshine Limited.
The company bas just received from
the Trail smelter the Bum of |10,-
948.34, being.the proceeds of the shipment, after the deduction of freight,
treatment and duty charges. One carload of tbe ore came from tbe Sunshine claim and the rest from the Silver Cup.
Frank Tribles, of Spokane and W.
Wallace have been prospecting the
Standard Basin, and struck a very extensive lead of copper ore, of the same
character as that in tbe Standard
olaim. They have named their claims
the Morning and the Noonday. The
claims adjoin the Monitor, tbe next
claim to the Standard iu the group.
There are seven men at work on
tbe Standard group, some doing assessment on Borne of tbe other claims,
while the main force is at work on the
lower level tunnel of the Standard.
The tunnel is now iu 25 feet, and is
calculated to strike the lead at 60 ft,
when tbe proposition is to run along
the lead to strike the shaft,wnich will
give a depth at that point ot 150 feet.
There iB still from five to six feet of
