firm of tlio kingship. These incidents
greatly relieve the tension und modify
Hie fears of an outbreak liut the proclamation of a provisional government
is keenly criticised by tho natives
nnd whites alike.
During the absenoe of Herr Rose,
the German consul, Ins duties will ne
in the hands of 'Vice Consul Gruuo,
while a deputy commissioner will undertake the duties of tho British eon-
sol, Mr. Mnxse. I have the best reason to believe that the commissioners
will take early action to seouie the retirement of the present chief justice
and the American consul, Mr. Osborne, although no definite decision
has been reached. As thero aro many
delicate matters awaiting consideration
it is very doubtful whether tho com
missioned will be able to leave by tho
end of the month.
NEW  FRENCH CABINET.
Mr. L. L. Merrifield, the gentleman
who has in charge the installation of
tbe gas plant in Nelson, is staying at tho
Piiair Hotel. Through the courtesy of
Dr. Doolittle Tho Miner was introduced to Mr. Merri Held, who proceeded to explain the system ot gas he proposed to install here. Owing to the
present size of the town it would hi J
nnadvisable to construct a direct gas
plant for the simple reason that, until
tho propulation doubled itself, the expenses would exceed the returns.
The proposed system therefore will
take the form of ooke burning���producing gas and other by products���as well
as, in all probability, a plant for carbonizing garbage and other organic
waste.
This system is a comparatively recent invention. For many years coke
has been burnt in bee hive ovens,
occasioning much waste of coal, nud
requiring a large amount nf labor.
In 1882 a Belgian engineer, M. Sol-
vay, invented a new rectangular shaped coke oven, which would economize
loth fuel and labor, and, in particular, would conserve tho gases generated
by the burning coal and extract trom
them several    valuable by products.
That same year a similar invention,
known as Ihe "Simou-l.'nrvcr" toke
oven, was tried at one or two of the
large coal mines in Durham. England,
giving considerable satisfaction.
Mr. Solvay then improved his invention, which became known as the
Semet-Solvny coke oven, and in a few
years time it was widely used in both
hemispheres.
The first plant tried in the Unit.id
States was in 1893 at Syracuse N. Y.
The prime product there was ammonia
for alkli works. At the present day
there are a number of these coke ovens
used iu (ho States having as a rulo,
coke for the prime product.
In lKUli tho oity of Halifax discarded
a similar but imperfect system, and
adopted tho Seniet-Solvay ovens for
burning coke. The gas works in that
town belonged to tho samo company as
tho coko ovens. It was resolved to
close down tho old gas plant, and, by
an adjustment of the apparatus the
first portion of the distillate
flora the coal���the nortion richest in
il luminal ing properties���was separated
and conveyed to a large tank for illuminating gns. It was found that this
gas gave a light equal to from 111 to
20 candle power.
During the last two years the system
has given great satisfaction at Halifax
and is considered to bo in every way
an improvement on tbe  old system.
Coke is more economical and labor
saving than anthracite coal. It ignites
quicker aud makes a hotter fire. Bnt
when mixed witb 25 to 30 per cent of
coal it burns better, aud in this form
is used all over France as tho ordinary
domestio fuel.
With this mixture a Btoro is always
completely under control, quickly bo-
coming a glowing mass when draught
is applied. It is easily kindled and
slow :o go out, and in Nelson, where
servants are scarce, will be a boon.
Mr. Morrilield Intends to start
work almost immediately, He is also
superintending tbe arrangements for
tbe Rossland (ins plant. Those only
who have experienced the cleanliness
and economy of gas for cooking, especially in tho summer mouths,can greatly
appreciate tho enterprise of Dr. Doolittle. As far ns lighting goes, electric
light is good enough, though some people find it trying to the sight. But it
is possible that the experiences of last
winter mav be repented and then will
be the turn for gaslight.
Anything is better than the evil
smeliing troublesome and extravagant
coal oil inmp.
An Appointment That Caused Consid-
nrable Comment.
Paris, June 22.���Tho appointment of
Geuoral, tho Marqnis de Gallifot, as
Minister of War, is an extraordinary
example of the way in which tho Dreyfus case has revolutionized political
conditions. For years past the general
has been the bugaboo of the extremists,
not only because of his monarchical
sympathies, but on account of the r.g-
orous means which ho took in repress
ing the Commune.
His entry into the cabinet is undoubtedly due to his attitude towards
the Dreyfus case which has been
throughout fnvorablo to Dreyfus, although he holds that the proclamation
of the prisoner's innocouce should not
include placing the responsibility of
the apparent judicial blunders upon
the general staff.
Senator Waldeck-Rousseau entered
parliament from Rennes where he once
practiced law. M. Waldeck-Rossean
was born at Nantes, December 2,
184ti. After practising law at Rennes
he became a member of tbe Paris bar.
He was elected to the Climber of
Deputies in 1870, and was Minister of
the Interior in the Gambetta cabinet,
1881, and 1882, and in the Ferry cabinet 1883-8!). He was re-elected in
1885, retired Ironi the party in 1889,
nnd was eleoted Senator in 1894. In
poiitics he is a Republican and a
revisionist.
Paris, June 22���On leaving the Ely-
see Palace, M. Waldeck-Ronsseau visited M. Dupuy the premier, to whom
ho presented the president's decree
naming him as the new premier. The
cabinet will meet tomorrow.
Paris, Juno 22.���Lo Courier Du Soir
publishes an interview this morning
with Geueral, the Marquis De Gal-
lent, tho new Minister of War, who
is represented as saying: "I am reproached for my attitude in 1871. At
that time I served the majority, tho
constitution aud the law as a soldier
ou tho active list. I have remained
silent until now. Today I find the
army talking far too much. I am as I
was ill) years ago, at the service of the
majority, t he constitution aud the
law. "
M. Alexandre Miller, a radical socialist, in an interview, published by
the same paper, is reported as saying :
"The Republicans have concluded an
armistice in order to meet the euemies
of the Republic and to restore things
lo tbeir proper places in the army the
magistracy   and the   administration."
IMPERIAL   LIMITED     ON   TIME.
The First Through Train Reached
Montreal Yesterday.
Montreal, June 22.���Sharp on time to
the minute the first through Imperial
Limited train of the 0. P. R. pulled
into Windsor street station this evening, having completed the Transcontinental jouruov in 100 hours. There
were a large number of passengers
when the train left Vancouver, some
were destined for pleasure resorts and
some for St. Paul and Chicago. Mr.
Lloyd, a wealthy Chicago ex-newspaper
man, who raced half way around the
world to be present at the graduating
exercises at Harvard tomorrow, at
which his son will graduate, was on
hoard and left by last night's Boston
train. He will reach Boston this
morning at 8:10 and will be in plenty
ot timo to nttend tho opening ceremonies at 10:80 to witness which he
has travelled half way around the
world.
THE   SAMOA    TROUBLE.
London Times Correspondent Explains
the  Present Position.
London, June 22.���Tho correspondent of the Times at Apia, Sanioau islands, under date of Juue 111 says:
Although considerable success has
attended tho labors of the commissioners it cannot be suid that the outlook
for the immediato future is altogether
satisfactory. In order to secure unanimity the commissioners have followed to u perilous extent a policy of compromise with tho result that many conclusions at which they havo arrived
are ineonsisteut nnd displeasing to all
parties. Tho onlv completo satisfactory features are the disaimnraent nud
disbandment ol the natives, the resignation of Malietoa Tanu and tho aboli-

Contracted for.

Thousand Pounds of Tea.
Chicago, Ills, June 22.��� Ohioago
financiers closed today ono of the most
important international transactions
in the history of the city. Iu the face
of keen compteition of London money
interests and in spite of the eagerness
of New York capitalists, an exciu- j
sivolv' Chicago syndicate secured aj
contract of the new issue of 138,000,000 j
of the City of Montreal, 40 year ii%
per cent gold bonds, on an interest,
basis of about % per cent. The purchasing sjndinate is composed of the
following banks and bankers: First
National Bank, Illinois Trust and Sav-
iug Bank, N. Harris & Co, Parsons,
Leach & Co., Devitt Trimble & Oo.
The importance of this transaction
to financial interests of Chicago is
greater owing to the faot that the previous issue of bonds of the same kind
have been promptly bought in with
London sovereigns, Amerioa rarely being ible to compete against the British demand.
LIFE INSURANCE BILL.
A Out Made on the Rate For Oats and
Com.
Chicago, June 22.���The Grand Trunk
today issued a new tariff, on oats and
corn, which it is thought will lead to
a competitive out by other roads. On
both domestic and export commodity
the rate went down four cents ou oats,
and six cents on corn. Tho move
camo as a surprise to shippers.
What Was   Done   at   Ottawa   By  the
Committee.
Ottawa, June   21.���-When the Bank >
ing and Commerce  Committee met  to
ooninue its deliberaions on the Govern-1
ment life insurance bill, all the exoite-1
ment of tbe last two days had vanished
and there was an air of expectancy
Hon. W. S. Fielding, in a brief
speech, proposed tbe following compromise: That the present 4% per
cent, basis should be extended to 1910,
instead of 1907, that then the first reduction to 4 per cent be brought into
force and that the time for the final
reduction from A i or oent. to % per
cent, be extended from 1912 to 1915.
This would give the companies a little
longer time to collect funds to meet
the requirements
Hon. G. E. Foster simply said that
he accepted tho proposition. If they
could agree by each giving up a little
it made the basis very much stronger.
It seemed to bim that if the compromise was accepted the difficulties were
m t insurmountable.
Mr. Macauley, president of the Sun
Life, said his company had been the
chief opponent of this bill. He had decided last night not to accept the compromise for this reason : If the members of tbe oommittee who represented
tbo pnlioy holders wero willing to accept the compromise, he would be able
to say: "We left it to the committee;
thoy decided in this way, and we
must submit." Ho had at onetime
made up his mind to fight the matter in the Senate. Now he wonld accept it only bocause tho Financo Minister would do nothing better. He was
not satisfied, but wouid withdraw opposition. Tho Finance Minister, supported by a Liberal Government, is at
fault in the matter. The preamble of
the bill wns  then adopted.
Mr. Fielding then said tbnt they had
now disposed of the principle of the
hill, and he was willing to aocept
amendment iure peot to minor clauses.
Mr. Madore moved an amendment,
to the clause governing "flrlelty insurance" so as to cover companies guaranteeing merchants, etc., against loss
iu busness by giving credit. A long
discussion ensued.
Hou. W. S. Fielding and Hon.
George E. Foster both opposed joining this class of business with any
other. They thought it ought to be
striotly separate. The motiou was negatived.
A olause wns added providing terms
under which assessment companies
desirons of doing old time business in
Canada can do so. The bill was reported as amended.
A CANADIAN MURDERED.
Wealthy Canadian Woman Murdered iu
Havana.
Havann, Juue 22.���Mr. Cardon, the
British consul geueral will takechaige
of the money and other effects of the
lata Minnie Ross, who was found
murdered in a house in Animas streot
Sunday morning. She was a Canadian
and her relatives have wired instructions from Toronto. There nro several
thousand dollars belonging lo hor es-
tate here and it is understood that sho
has $30,000 on deposit in a Florida
bank.
Colombo, Jnne 22.���Tho U. S. cruiser Olympia with Admiral Dawey ou
board arrived here at 6 a. m. from
Singapore, saluted the forts and thoy
saluted in return. An aide-de-camp
representing the governor of Ceylon,
Right Hon. Sir Joseph West Ridgway,
boarded the Olympia at 7 o'clock as a
welcome to Dewey, and Colonel Sacl-
me, commanding the troops, called at
10 o'clock. The visits were returned
by Admiral Dewey at 11 o'clock. He
was received at the jetty by a guard
of honor and amidst cheering entered
the governor's carriage to breakfast
with Colonel Savage. The admiral
afterwards booked rooms nt the Gallo-
face Hotel and returned on board the
Olympia at 1 o'clock.
There ho received a deputation representing the Planters' Association
and the Chamber of Commerce, aud
was presented with a silver casket and
an address as a memento of his visit.
The prsentation of the casket was
made on board the Olympia instead of
in the counoil chamber, bnt the admiral's dootor had forbidden him to
participate in the function. The delegates of the planters association presented a thousand pounds of tea of
Oeylon to the orew of the O lympia.
The admiral replying to the add ress
of welcome said he wished he conld
reply in adequate terms reciprocating
the sentiments expressed. But, he added, he spoke from his heart when he
SBid he deeply appreciated the welcome. He would have the very acceptable present of tea distributed as desired, incidentally mentioning that he
was a lifelong teetotaller und assuring
the delegates that the address would.be
read at mnster and afterwards fram'ed
and preserved. That he would always
keep tbe casket on his table und told
delegates he would report it to his government.
He also remarked: "That cheer
raised on the jetty wheu I landed went
to the hearts of all of us. We are 14,
000 miles from home, but that oheor
will be hearo in Amorica, although the
wny in which it has touched me I
shall never be able to express. The
two nations were never so olosely allied by mutual sympathy and appreciation as now. The American people
realized this dnring the late war and
yon can imagine how all those who
were at Manila and met Sir Edward
Ohicester, commander of tho British
first-class cruiser Immortalito) and
his gallant comrades hold that feeling
very deeply."
A general conversation followed nnd
after toasting the Anglo-American union and the prosperity of the two countries the delegation departed. The admiral will remain in Ceylon abont a
week. He says ho had a good voyage
from Singapore and that his health is
fairly good.

Pathetic   Scene   on     Arrival   of
Orniser Philadelphia.
San Francisco, June 22.���Thero was
a pathetio soenn on the quarter deck of
tho big oruiser Philadelphia this afternoon, a few minutes after she urrived
from Samoa.
On the qnntter deck of the ship, covered by the Stars nnd Srtipes, were
two ooffins containing bodies of Lien-
tenant P. V. Lausdale and Ensign
James R. Monaghan, Amerionn officers
ambushed with a small force of their
own and British marines on the first
of last April. When it seemed certain
that the Philadelphia wonld remain
on tbe Samoan station fcr an indefinite
period two offlcors were bnried with
martial honors nt Apia, together with
the men of tho flagship who fell with
them. When au order wai sent recalling the vessel, it was decided touecuro
the bodies again and bring thorn to the
United States.
Tho arrival of the Philadelphia had
been anxiously watched for nnrl the
chain had scaroely ceased running
throngh the hawsor at the how when
Father Jacqnet, a well known priest
of San Jose, nocompauied by John
Monnghan, father of Ensign James
R. Monaghan, and Thomns Graham,
his cousin, were escorted to the bridge,
where the priest uttered a prayer,
the others standing about him with
bared beads. Father Jaoquot is originally from Spokane, and the young ensign waB the first white pupil bo ever

THE NEWS   FROM MANILA.
Washington Regiment Captures a Brass
Band of 82 Pisces.
Manila. June 22. ���The charge
against the Filipino colonel for which
ho was tried jy them recently was
that in conversation with Filipino
officers ho predicted that disorders
witlnu the insurgent territory would
load to civil war and therefore he said
he considered autonomy with iho
Americans preferable. Finally tho colonel was sentenced to death, but this
wus commuted to 12 years imprisonment, on uccuunt of his service to he
cause after an eloquent plea upon the
part of his counsel.
Tbe icbols havo learned that tho
American volunteers aro returning
to the United States and the Filipino
nwspapers snow they construe this to
moan that the Americans are abandoning the war and are encouraged thereby.
The outpost of the Washington regiment yesterday captured General Pio
De Pillars brass bauds of 82 pieces,
the members ot which somehow becomes separated from the army aud
came to the American lines without
having the means of resistance.
Some Chinamen of Manila havo entered action against tho instruments,
which it appears wore leased tho musicians of General Pio de Pillar.
Four of tho injured Fourth regiment in a recent fight with the rebels
have died iu the hospital.
Escape of Two  Gaol-Birds
Yesterday.
RISKED   FOR   LIBERTY
AT    THE   PEACE   CONFERENCE.
Many Important Subjects Dealt With
Yesterday.
Tho Hague, Juno 22.���After a short
session of tbe sub committee of war
and navy at whioh reports by Major-
General Donby Poortsgal, of tho Dutch
delegation, and Count Soltyk, tho Australian naval expert, were respectively
adopted the first committee met to
discus^ the same,   in   the above ordor.
Tho delegates declared in favor of
any stato using any new exnlosives or
new invention, for ordnances Russian
and Bulgarian alone refraining from
votiug.
Tho question of tho Dnin duni bullets
was discussed. Major Sir John Ar-
dagh, of tho British delegation, declaring that Great Britain did not desire
to use auy projectile inconsistent with
the principles of modern warfare and
Dumdums should be only used against
an uncivilised foe. Conference finally
resolved in favor of prohibiting the
use of bullets which easily flattened
out in the human body or explosive
bullets, bullets iu a hardened case
which does not entirely cover the
point, or bullets which havo an incision. Tho British and American delegates alone voted uegative.
The use of any new explosives in
projectiles from balloons was prohibited for five years. Tho question of
restraining tho introduction of new
types of rifles was deferred. Count
Soltky's report was then tal<eu up. It
doclarod that the sub-committee
though unable to agree regarding the
proposed abolition of naval rams, submarine torpedo boats and the use ot
explosives had declared against the use
of asphixiatiug gases which the first
committee also approved.
While Working Outside They  Elude th*
Vigilance of the Guard and
Get Away.
Yesterday afternoon a gang of eight
prisoners iu charge of W. McAIraau,
tbe goal guard, were at work exoavat-
ing for the new Land Registry office.
About 30 yards distant was a pile
of rubbish that had been cleared off the
laud. Two of the gang, Dunn and
Watson, were ordered to set fire to the
pile.
Taking advantage of the distance
between them and the guard they
managed to elude his watchful eye and
bolted off. McAlman was armed with
a rifio but he did not attempt tonseit,
which was perhaps fortunate for him,
the rifle in question being more adapted for a museum of prehistoric weapons tban for stopping a fugitive.
The alarm was givan to Mr. Bullock-Webster who immediately sent ont
parties to, if possible, bring hack the
wandering sheep to the fold.
The following are the descriptions
of the fugitive. Thomas Dunn, aged
28, 5 feat 8 inches in height, brown
hair aud eyes, dark complexion, nnd
thin.
William Watson, aged 34, 5 feet, 7
inches in height, brown hair, grey
eyes, and light complexion. Both the
men weu-e dressed in prison gArh, hick-
ory shirts nnd dark jean pants marked
"P. G." with a broad arrow between
the letters.
The men were arrested with three
olhors on suspicion of having been
mixed up with a stabbing fray at Slocan City. They were, however, only
convicted on a charge of vagrancy and
sentenced to three months' hard labor,
so perhaps society at large will not be
much concerned at tneir departure,
while the tax payer can rejoice.
ARRIVAL   OF ARGONAUTS.
WANTED HIM TO LECTURE.
Major Marchand Approached By Americans For Tbat Purpose
London, June 22. ���The Daily Nows
prints a despatch from Paris saying
that au onormuos sum was offered to
Major Marohand, the African explorer
to lecture in tho United States, but ho
refused, "Ah bis wants are. few."
Ho however, says, that if ho was authorized to lecture he would give all
the money he earned to the uuvy
league to which he has already presented 5,000 francs, being the part of
tho d'Audiffrot prize which with this
was awardeil to him for his achievements in Africa. In connection with
this subject Marchand referred to tho
navy league as au organization to place
tho French fleet on such footing us
would insure France against another
such painful humiliation as tho Fash-
oda affair. Major Marchand is writing an account of his expedition. The
Paris publisher bus arranged for an
English version.

EVIL   DAYS.
The   Provinco   today is   in   a sorry
plight.    Its  condition   is so described
by The Victoria  Globe,   and we have
only to look aronnd us to see how true
the description   is.    "Never  before iu
the history of the  Province," it  says,
" were pnblio affairs in so disturbed   a
state.    The   people    are    bewildered.
They see on all sides evidences of   the
stupid blundering   of  an  incompetent
Government.    Tbey  see  business    on
all sides unsettled.    Mines are  closing
down,   throwing   hundreds out of employment ; capital is alarmed; disputes
innumerable are arising; where yesterday there was progiess, today there  is
stagnation.    And this at  a time when
the country should be going  ahead  by
leaps and  bounds."   Capital   is  more
than   alarmed; it  is  frightened,   and
has run to  cover.    And   it  is  capital
more tban anything else tbat  our  rulers and   governors should devote  their
greatest care  to  encourage.    Tbe  end |
and aim of every   policy  and all policies should be to attract capital  to the
Provinoe, for without it development is
impossible.    We may   onltivate  fields
without capital, but   we  cannot make
mines, and British   Columbia   is   depending more  on   its  mines than   on
its fields.
Everything promised well for a prosperous mining year. Some exceedingly
rich properties had been developed;
British Columbia had become the talk
of the mining world, and for the first
time foreign mining capital had fairly
begun flowing in our direction. This
has been arrested, and the feeling of
hope and confidence has given place
to that of donbt and uncertainty nnd
uneasiness. The eight-hour law is responsible for the change. The law
itself might lu.ve done no harm if introduced in a regular, legitimate manner ; but coming as i* did a condition
of disturlmnoe was inevitable. Ministers, however, might have continued
to contemplate this witb equanimity.
A trumpery matter, the Deadman's
Island affair, was also introduced, and
it has served more than anything el.-e
to discover to the people how helplessly
Ministers are floundering. The administration of pnblio affairs is at
sixes and sevens, while the greatest of
onr i idustries is paralysed.
The Globe, The Colonist, and The
Vancouver World are crying for
something to remedy the evils that
have fallen upon the Province, but
without clearly understanding or indicating what is necessary to meet the
emergency. We are told on one hand
that a new party ought to be organized ; on another that the Lieutenant-
Governor shonld demand a report of
the situation generally as a preliminary to some action looking to its relief. It iB plain matters cannot go on
as they are. There is a rift in the
Cabinet tbat must work its destruction before many weeks. But with
the present Cabinet dissolved, what is
to take its place? A new party is out
of the question; the only material
available is such as the Legislature as
at present constituted has to offer. In
times of a crisis we cannot stop to
manufacture new material, bnt must
make the best of that we have. Mr.
Turner is in England; it is not suggested tbat any other member of the
Opposition wonld do as leader. Why
not rally to the support of Mr. Cotton,
and nsk hlin to lead the Province out of
this political wilderness? He is cc-
scribod ns a man of ability, but ambitious, constantly scheming to serve
his own end. If that end is to become Premier, it is a laudable ambition; and if clean-banded and honest,
as he is believed to be, he would turn
rom himself to the Province once his
ambition were gratified. If there is
to be a Ministerial crisis, we do not see
what else is praotioable or possible in
the emergenoy.
The New York Times intends to establish a news bureau of its own. It
is an expensive system of news gathering, but has tbe advautago of supplying
exactly what is required, The Times
does not propose to enter into competition with the regular news associations, but if a demand should be found
for its service It will Bupply it. If
some of the larger Canadian papers in
the East would adopt a similar system,
they would not want for customers.
We do not know anything tbat is
more badly needed thau a good Canadian news service that is availablo for
general supply.

'CANDID"   HE   IS.
Tc the Editor of Tbe Miner:
Sir:���To be candid the Nelson Miner
might be called a prevaricator and
worse. It hns said, "It has no desire
to give currency to a line or word for
or against minors or mine owners that
is not strictly true. " It has said, "It
has no animosity to miners; no partiality for mine owners."
Those who have read the Miner sinco
the eight-hour law has come under discussion, require no more evidence to
substantiate the charge of prevarication. Can The Miner explain why so
many of its reported lawless aots of the
miuers have been proved to be fictitious? That these reports were untrue
was afterwards admitted by The Miner
itself iu some cases, but the evil bad
been accomplished. This might be
excusable had other newspapers been
caught on these vicious reports, but
most remarkable to relate The Miner
was the ouly paper which gave credence to theso stories; and uot once or
twice, but many times did this happen. Some uncharitable people might
say that the wish was father to the
thought. For argument's sake, however, let ns give the editor the benefit
of the doubt nnd instead consider his
position by his own contributions
whose opinions he fathers
In all the effusive leading articles
appearing in The Miner on the question none have fairly weighed the side
of tbe working miner; indeed, it did
not attempt to do so bnt with almost
fanatical fervor decried tbe law, its
makers and those, the great majority,
whom it most benefitted. It is not
neoesary here to point out any particular issne of The Miuer where it voiced
these opinions, they all rang witb the
same sentiment, "The poor mine owner. " Will The Miner deny the justice
of legislation that works for the advance of the great majority? Of course
it will way. eloquent on the infamous
infringment on the liberty of the citizen, and the sacred right cf the minority, etc. How often the liberty of
the citizen must be restrained for the
publio good? For iustanco a health
officer is otten times arbitrary and issues liberty destroying orders. A
newspaper editor is sometimes brought
before the beak for publishing malicious falsehoods and thus otten times deprived of his liberty. These people
may think they have been wronged,
bnt such things are painful necessities
of the public weal.
Has The Miner any soul above opposition party politics? It would seem
not.    No opportunity is allowed   to go

The following,from a New York paper, is a little shoppy bnt it will bear
reproducing: "The publisher of a
newspaper has one thing to sell and
one thing to rent. He has the newspaper to sell and the space in his columns to rent. Can anyone inform us
why he should bo eipeoted to give
away either the one or tbe other? He
Oan if he so chooses, and he does, as n
matter of fact, furnish a great deal of
space rent free. Bnt it does not follow that he ought to be expected to do
go. It ought to be reoognised as a
contribution, exactly as would be the
giving away of sngar or coffee by a
grocer. Bnt, strange to say, it is uot
looked upon in that light at all, and
yet everybody knows that theexistinoe
of a newspaper   depends  upon    the
hy which affords a chance to dig its
opponents even at the sacrifice of common sense.
Can it not discuss a question on its
merits with due regard to the evil ot
hypocrisy ?
Hypocrisy is a word The Miner has
uhed more than once while declaiming tho argument of those who espoused the eight hour law : aud for its
benefit let it be remembered that it ill
becomes those who live in glass houses
to throw stones.      AN OBSERVER.

' NELSON DAILY MINER, FRIDAY. JUNE 23, 1899.
FOR DOMINION DAY
BOATING AND HORSEKAOIffO
COMPARED.
APE
The Oommittee for Water Sports Doing
Thoir Pest To Mnks Them
Tho powers that lie who control the
Dominion Day oelehration fete have
wisely paraded, in largo letters on
their posters, the regatta and water
carnival.
At the largely attended though in-
eU'eetiuil meeting at the Fire Mali
whii'li was oonvened in order to arrange the programme there were somo
present who expressed, an opinion lo
the effeot that nil other spirt< should,
in Nelson, be nuulo subservient to tho
tegntta.
What gratification���Save to the purveyors of strong drinIf, who on that
dav drive a roaring trade���the sight of
a few old oayosos galloping along a
floaty street can give, it is hard to imagine.
Horse racing, so tho history books
say, wus instituted by Oharles II fcr
the purpose of improvng the breed
of horses in England.
Possibly the merry monarch's desire
has been fulfilled, though seriously to
the doty mint of (be fortunes of the
horse' master, "all conqneiiag man,"
It oaunot be seriously urged that this
is the motive that inspires Nelson to
celebrate Dominion Day with the feeble caricature of a race meeting. Beyond increasing tbe sale of liquor and
instilling n mild taste for gambling
in the breasts of the singularly moral
Nelsonian, it is questionable whether
these Boon lied horse rates are of any
I enefit to the town.
Then why not utilize the beautiful
sheet of water, whioh is tbe crowning
gift of Nature to Nelson, to its fullest
extent, and make the regatta hero the
Henley regatta of the Province cr in
fact of the Dominion? However, until the laws of the Jledes and Persians
alter the Nelson regatta must take n
back seat. This year thn regatta committee menu to make the most of theii
limited funds at. their disposal.
The proportion of the $8,5C0 which
was allotted to the regatta and carnival fun 1 was miserably small hut has
since been augumented by outside subscriptions
The capable and einrgetic committee
have arranged an excellent programme
Tbe International Fours shonld prve
nn interesting race. Nonrlv every
evening English, Irish or Canadian
crows are practising. Scotland so far
has shown its national contempt for
water by not supplying a four, bnt
There is yet time to wipe out the national disgrace.
Some of the yt'.Z s have been already
purchased :(of effnrse from local tradesmen) and incliidi several gold watches
and lockets set with diamonds.
Kaslo and the Hln-mn district will
send crews to compete with tbe Nelson oarsmen and there will probably
be other entries from neighboring
towns.
Tbe committee ara very anxious to
make the evening carnival a success.
They suggest tbnt rll owners of pri-
vato boats (nud hirers of publb' brat-
tool should decorate their craft with
hint"r>-s hnntinff ��tn A maximum
of aste with a minimum of expense
will go farthest in tbat diraeiion
Mnsin and fireworks will charm both
eat and eye.
The committee earnestly ask for the
hearty co-operation of everyone iu (-r-
der to second their efforts for Ihe good
of the towu. Tbey bave also expressed a wish that Iho press shoaid urge
their claims for patronage, to whioh
wish Tin- Miner gladly responds and
wishes them withal Queen's weather
and th t entire success which their
energy unci putdic spiriteducss deserves.

found to almost equal the rate at which
the lake is rising. The contest is

Fort Steele, June 20.���The Estella
group on Tracy creek, about 14 miles
north of Fort Steele, is showing up in
a remarkable manner. Tbe shaft has
been sunk in the banging wall and at
65 feet is in solid ore. running high
in oopper and gold; tbe width of the
ore body has' not' been ascertained.
This property shows more development
than any other mine in East Kootenay.
The original work was to run a cross
out tunnel to tap the ore body at
depth. After running 700 feet the work
���was temporarily stopped and sinking
commenced. There are 200 tons of
shipping ore and about 300 tons of concentrating on the dump.
The lower tunnel of the Big Chief
iB now in 70 feet and the quality of
the quartz is improving. This tunnel
is being driven on the hanging wall.
When the 100-foot point is reaohed
orosscutting will be oomraenoed to ascertain the width of the vein at that
distance. A systematic development
of the Gem and Stoney olaims on
Sullivan hill will be commenced
shortly. The property will first be
surveyed for a crown grant. E. P.
Hogan anrl others of Spokane, are the
owners. The olaims adjoin the Sullivan on the north.
Mr. P. E. Seelye, manager of the
Alexander-Delly Mining Co., was in
town yesterday, and leave for Spokane
today, where he will spend a few
days. The melting snow has caused a
good deal of surface water to accumulate around the mine, so work will be
suspended for the next two or three
weeks, to enable it to drain off. Tbe
mine is looking its very best. A tunnel
is in 181 feet, where they are drifting
on the ledge. The vein is about four
feet through, gold and silver ore, the
average combined value running about
$116 to tho ton.
Dr. Doolittle accompanied by Mr. L.
L. Merrifield visited the Venus group
on Toad Mountain yesterday. They
expressed themselves highly gratified
with the results of their insDeotion. In
the upper tunnel a lead, 18 inches in
width of clean milling ore has been
struok about 50 feet from the entrance
to the tunnel.
In the lower tunnel, within the first
few feot, a ledge 5^ feet wide of free
milling quartz was met. Whereat Dr.
Doolittle rejoiceth.
Slocan City, June 20.���The steamer
Slooan is laid np for repair. The tug
Sandon is making the trip in her place
and leaves here at 9:80 a. m. on the
arrival of the Nelson train, returning
ut 5 p. m. and making olose connections with trains for Nelson.
Mr. Andrews, a brother of F. S
Andraws, Barrister, paid this oity a
visit in the interests of the Silver Hill
Mining Co., of Winnipeg. He wont
up to the fourth south fork of Lemon
oteek and reports the Lost Hope claim
as looking well, he left yesterday to
inspect some properties near Ains-
worth.
The Evening Star has resumed work
on Dayton creek with a full force on
the eight-bour system. Tbe Arlington
is running with a full foroe of eight
hours a shift, there is no donbt bnt
what all the mines will begin operations at the soale $8.50 for eight hours.
It is simply a question of a few weeks
now.
Messrs. Beamish and Anderson are
in town from the Joe Bailey olaim.
They are well satisfied with the show-
in after about three months work. Mr. I
Dan Aruot has purchased the building
lately oocnpied by D. Mowat and haB :
moved hia general stock into his prem-1
isos after stronthening it aud fixing up
thoroulily.
Tbe Blnck Prinoo have sacked tip a
oar of ore and aro in only 11 feet.
This is a record breaker.
J. P. Driscoll who with J. Beaupiec
have beeu doing assessment work ou
tbeir claim at the head of the lake ro-
! turned Mondny. Driscoll brought
down some very fine galena ore whioh
will run way high in silver and
lead.
M. McNaught came in from Silver-
ton to do some work on the Kilo claim.
He intends shipping ore. He has taken
up a large quantity of supplies aud
intends staying with it The Kilo iB
