Yesterday n wet morning foreboded
ill tor cricket. However the clouds
began to break and by 11 o'clock there
wns every promise of a tine day. Lover.* of the gHine remembered that it
wns the day fixed for the crickot match
between Nelson and Rosslnad and consequently Um weather clerk received
his merited thanks. As a matter of
fact tho heavy clouds and tiny shownis
onme as a boon to the cricketers: for
an eight hour shift under a blazing sun
is not altogether desirable, even when
the great national game is tho subject matter.
There waa somo delay nt the start
owing to Ihe ground not being ready.
J. Klliot, as captaiu of the Kelson
team, won tho tons and decided to go
in. At 11:80 the game commenced.
McKenzie and Noroross were tho Hist
men in and made but a short stand
against tne bowing of Bullen and
Hamilton. Noroross showed good style
nnd niacin one pretty hit but succumbed to a niffiou.lt l nil from Bullen.
Tl.en a "rot" sot in among the Nel.

unluckily played on, Williams wbb

before uftir making two runs. Theu
Heathcote and Haines got together and
turned the tide. lluithcote is a pretty
player and a straight bat. His innings
of 2H wus by far tho best feature iu
the Kelson part of tho performance.
Haines played carefully but did not
score more than three runs although he
wus at the Wicket over half an hour.
Atkey is eivdeiltly a good cricneter but
unfortunately he wus run out after
making !i runs, otherwise the Kosslaud howlers might havo found him a
toogh nut to oraok,
Brown is a lino Hitter with plenty of
strength ;he did not take long to knook

STORIES DO NOT AUREE.
All Kinds of Statements Made in Connection With the Dreyfus Oase.
Paris, July 22���Tbe most contradictory statements of all kinds oontinue
to nppear in the Dreyfus affair. ThuB
Major EBterhazy, over his own signature, reiteratos the guilt of Oaptain
Dreyfus, without, however, offering
any proof, and charges several gen-
eruls with various grave offenses. At
the same time Major Ester hazy's
nephew accuses his uncle of being the
worst sort ot blaok leg, whose word is
utterly worthless.
The same sort of contradictions appear concerning Oaptain Dreyfus' treatment 011 Devil's Island. One side
holds that the prisoner was dreadfully
tortured, the other that he was confined, treated with humanity, but it
is said by a person in a position to
have the whole truth, tbat not half the
cruelties inflicted on Drefyus are yet
known. His friends are evidently
keening back tbe oomplete story until after tbe verdict, when all will be
revealed and nniversal indignation
aud deserved punishments will follow.
Etuil Zola's powetful pen will be re-
sharpened on these points and jnst before the opening day of the trial will
appear in a grand article with the aim
of winning the favor of tbe military
judges. After the verdiot he will address an open letter to the President ot
the Republic in seq. el to tbe famous,
"I accuse" addressed to President.
Panre. This will be triumphant in
tune, vindicating bis cause and confounding his enemies.
Then, wheu the country shall have
recovored from the first excitement
of thn verdict, whioh Zola is convinced
will bo acquittal, be will address
hii final mes-age to the country designating by name those who are guilty
aud boldly demanding their punishment. Zola is holding himself in the
strictest reserve in order that bis reappearance may be the product of the
greatest effect.
"Not the least striking of the whole
trugio affair," remarked one of Zola's
friends, "probably will be the final
aot of the great novelist who has lost
health and money in tbis noble crusade. " Dreyfus lawyers have applied
10 M. Ducrais, Minister of the Colonies, to see all their clients intercept-
oil letters. Among these letters are
many urgent appeals for justioe. addressed to the Presidents of the Senate
and Chamber of Deputies.

OBJECT TO LAYING
WIHS IS ALLEYWAYS
Letter From Gas Company
on Council's Action.
SOME  REASONS GIVEN
It Is Necessary That Their Pipes Be Laid
on the Streets, Where Levels
Are Aocurate.
Editor of The Miuer:
Sir:���Noting in this morning's
Miuer discussion in Counoil that we
should lay our gas mains in alleys on
nil streets running parallel with Baker
street. 1 have carefully considered all Ihe
locations, Btreets aud alleys, previous
to hling our plau of distribution, with
the  City Engineer.
Owing to the topographical position
of the City, it is impossible to adopt
their suggestions. For examplo: We
will take our supply tor Baker street���
on the southside���with main supply
from Stanley. The condensation that
arises from the consumption and passage of gas through pipes, will render
the services (if put in) to consumers
on the south side of Baker street, and
in faot, all parallel streets, entirely
useless and with uo assurance at any
time of a permanent supply of gas,
apart from injury and loss by this
condensation to our meters when installed, which are not constructed to
stand or use such treatment. In practical gas engineering, it is the first
principle in laying out a gas works,
that the works shonld be paced at the
lowest point in tbe City, so that all
condensation, where practicable, and
nut conflicting with street grades,
will gravitate to the works, where provision is mado to diepose of it. On
this same plan, the service pipes, leading to consumer's premises are laid
ou a grade so that condensation will
gravitate to the mains in the streets.
This plan, as you roadily soe, makes
the distributing plant autmomatio in
operation involving no enre or attention in t iese details. Wo will suppose,
for sake of argument, we lay our supply pipe on tbe alley between Stanley
and Ward streets, for south side of Baker street, mid wish to supply tbe
building, now in course of erection
by the Hudson's Bay Company; we
leave Stanley street with a drop from
the main of about ten feet into the
alley, aud will then be oompelled to
run down into basement with service
pipe. at. sny, four feet from floor line.
The grade would be from the alley into
the basement and condensation that
would take plaoe in the main aud service pipe would run towards the meter, not being able to find its way
to Stanley street and main p:pe to our
worka. Tbe council might suggest
thnt we put in a drip or cistern to col-
loct this condensation at a point near
the xueter in the basemeut, to be emptied whenever necessary
Anyone that has had experience with
the use of gas in eitieB, kuows what
an intolerable nuisance and danger
would result from the emptying of this
drip on your premises, the liquid, containing a percentage of volatile oil
and water, and ammonia sulphides,
with on odor of rotten eggs. This
would not bo an individual ease, but
would apply to all consumers on the
south half of block parallel with Bakfi
street.
In addition to the above facts, consumers wonld be put to the additional
expense of laying 40 to 00 feet more
service pipe in order to get their supply to meter iu a convenient aud
warm part of the premises or huso-
ment, as in overy oase 11 basement or
collar connects with the main street
aud not necessarily with the alloy, and
furthermore may not need gas in the
rear of their premises, but without
doubt, iu the front in every caso.
ThiB, as anyone can readily seo, will
probably enhance the cost of installing
their piping and fixtures from 25 to y5
per cent mor9 tban would be, as compared with obtaining supply from tbe
maiu street.
We observe that the city are using
the allevB for laying of sewers for thoir
own and the public couvenienoe. We
cannot sse how there wonld be space
enough for our pipe lineB in addition,
for the obvious reasons that our pipe
must be on solid ground iu all cases.
Failing this they would settle, cause
leakago and prevent the gravitation of
the oondeused liquid to the points provided   for   them.
By referring to our plan filed with
the Oity one will see that we have been
most careful to avoid tbo wator mains
and sewer lines on these grounds.
Another important fact. The Oity
Counoil anticipated a possible purchase of onr works when granting a
franchise for the coustmotion. They
or their successors would certainly
expect to purchase an undertaking and
plant constructed on modern principles, and working as automatically and
economically as ifl possible.
Such would not be the case if their
suggestions are put into practical effect.

WIN THE FOUR EVENTS
The Meeting of the College Athletes Ee-
sulta in a Victory for Those of
Old England.
Londou, July 22.���England won the
majority of the events in the International League sports today and tonight
tho friends of the Cambridge and Oxford athletes are celebrating the victory as only college men can celebrate. The hot spell of weather was
temporarily broken last night by a
heavy fall of rain, followed by a somewhat gloomy morning, causing apprehension. At noon, however, the sun
was again sibning and the heat waB
tropical. This left London under
a hot mist but dispelled the fears of
rain. The gates of the (Queens Club
grounds were thrown open at 2 :15 p.
m. to the crowds that were already
surrounding the entrances. The American and English flags were flying
from the centre of the field, while the
club house aud long rows of stands,
which enclosed the remaining side s of
tbe grounds, were brilliant with flags
of all uations and the oolors of Yale,
Harvard, Oxford and Oambridge. The
rain had resulted in putting the track
in excellent condition and the microscopic care with which every Burper-
flooiiB article and beeu removed won
the admiration of American visitors.
The Prince of Wales, the Duke of York
the Duchess of York and the Duke of
Portland, arrived at five minutes alter
four. OtherB who arrived early were
the United States Ambassador, Mr.
Choate, the secretary of tbe Embassy
Mr. Henry White, Lord and Lady
Carendon, Lord and Lady Wenlook,
Sir Richard Webster, the Attorney
General, the Eail of Chesterfield and
Vicsount Howe. On the arrival of
the Prince of Wales the band played,
"Ood Save the Queen." The Royal
party was enthusiastically greeted and
the Princf. appearing at the front of the
platform, returned the salute of the
crowds and immediately extended hi
band to Ambassador Ohoate.
The Prince was followed by the Duke
of York. The Amerioan and English
flags at the centre of tbe grounds were
at ouce lowered as tbe Royal standard
floated above the stand. The grounds
were completely filled and presented a
beautiful picture. " Tbe great Velvet
quadrangle was banked on four sides
with tiers of seats where gorgeous
summer toilets were displayed while
the sunshiue was just strong enough
to emphasize the perfection of the
scene. As tbe stands filled up masses
of blue a id crimson manifested themselves at interval where Yale and
Harvard collected and the familiar blue
flag with the white " Y." oentre surrounding the Amerioan colors on the
same stick gave these seotious of
the stands a Thanksgiving day
appearance. In honor of the
Aniorioan guests, the bands played selections from "El Oapitan" and the
"Belle of New York." The contestants in the first events wero warmly
applauded on entering the grounds,
followed as tbey were by the judges,
referee and timekeepers, The jump
was made just in front of tbe pavilion and Royal box, while simultaneously the hammer throwing commenced at the centre of the grouuds.
Tho following is a summary of the
nine events:
Long Jump���Won by G. C. Vassall,
Oxford j C. D. Daly, Harvard, second ;
J, T. Roche, Harvard, third; and h.
R. O'Bevan, Cambridge, fourth. Vassall led off with 22 feet B inches, followed by Roche with 21 feet 7 inches.
Bevan followed, but did not make 20
feet: the jump was not measured.
Daly came next with aOfeetfij^ inches.
Iu tho second trial Vassall did 22
feet 5 inches. Both Roche and Bevan
failed to do 20 feet, while Daly made
21 feet W/i inches In the third trial
Vassall made 22 feet �� inches, and
Roobe, 21 feet fl inches. Bevan with 20
feet 4>�� iuobes and Daly with 21 feet
lO'-j inohes. In tho fourth trial Vas
sail made a sudden jump of 28 feet
K.iaoho, Bevan and Daly all failed to
reach 20 feet. In the fifth and last
round Vassall and Bevan were both
under 20 feet: Roche fell baok and was
not measured. Daly did 22 feet 8
inches. Then the EngliBh flag was
hoisted   to record the first viotory.

One Mile Run���H. H. Hunter, Cambridge, won; A. I.. Dawson, Oxford,
second; O. B. Spitzer, Yale, third,
and P. Smith, Yale, fourth. Free
mantle, Oxford also started. Time 4
minutes 24 seconds. Freemantle took
the lead, going at a good pace and led
for the first two laps, Hunter closely
followed with Smith aud Spitzer next
and Dawson at the rear. At the last
Freemantle retirod and Huuter, ruu-
niug strong, soon put a wide gap between himself and the others, Dawson going up to secoud place. Entering the straight for home, Spitzer
made a gallant attempt for second
place and drew level, but after a few
yards Dawson again passed him and
finished second, Spitzer being third.
All the men were greatly exhausted
and Spitzer especially. He was unable to walk and had to be almost carried to the pavilion. Hunter won hy 80
yards.
Hurdle Race���F.    Z.   Fox, Harvard,
on; W. Paget Tomlinson,Cambridge,
second; H. R. Parks, Oxford, third,
and J. Hallowell, Harvard, fourth.
Time, 15;!^' seconds. Fox led from
start to finish and won by two and a
half yards, there being half a yard between Paget Tomlinson and Parks.
Tbere was tremenduous cheering from
the Yale and Harvard stands when it
was announced that Fox had equalled
the British amateur record.
Half Milo Hun���Won by H. E. H.
Graham, Oambridge, ; C. F. \V. Stur-
ben, Oambndgo, second; J. F. Adams,
Yale, third, and T. E. Burke Harvard, fourth. Time 1 :57J��. Sturban
led for the flrat lap,followed by Adams,
"Graham and Burke In the order mentioned. When this lap had been completed, Graham went to the front and,
ruuning in splendid style, won by
about eight yards amid excited cboers
from the Englishmen and depression
aud silence on the part of the Americans. Burke did not finish but had to
be supported to the pavalion and car-
ri'd upstair. His trainer said that his
stomach had gone back on him.
Quarter Mile Run���Won by O. G.
Davis, Cambridge; J. L. Boardman,
Yale, second; L. R. Fisher, Yale,
third, aud A. M. Hollins, Oxford,
fourth. Time, 49 2-5 seconds. There
was a level start and Boardman set
the pace at a tremenduous rate, entering the straight for home. Hollins just
led Boardman with Davison last.
About 70 yards from home Davison
came up with a tremenduous rush on
the inside and won by five yards.
Boardman rallied considerably near
home, making a grand but hopeless
struggle. The winning of this race
by tbe Englishman was a great ups-t
and it was generally regarded that they
would now win a majority of tbe
events.
High Jump���Won by A. N. Rice,
Harvard. He cleared six feet;H. S.
Adair, Oxford, second, at 5 feet 11
inches; O. M. Roche, Harvard, 5 feet

Three Mile Race -Won by H. W.
Workman, Cambridge; 0. H. Palmer,
Yale, second ; G. Wilberforce, Oxford ;
Smith, Oxford, H. W. Foote, Harvard, and H. B. Clarko, Harvard, did
not finish. Time, 15 minutes, 84;,'4'
seconds. After going about 10 yards
the three Englishmen singled themselves out in line.Wiloerforce just leading Workman,and Smith,Foote, Clarke
and Palmer, of the Yale-Harvard team
following olosely. This order was
maintained during thu second lap, except that Palmer weDt up 50 feet. At
the mile the time was 4:58. Wilberforce still led but shortly afterwards
Smith took up the running just ahead
of Workman with Clarke and Palmer
a couple of yards behind and Foote 40
feet away. In the back stretch Clarke
snddenlv plunged head foremost ou the
track leaving Palmer io keep up the
contest with Workman. Shortly after
this Smith fell in front of the pavilion. The race was now left to Workman nn.l Palmer. In the eighth lap
both led alternatively and coming by
the Yale stand, the plaudits of bis fellow-collegians caused Palmer to make
a final effort, but Workman was run
uing very strongly und again went to
the front, and Palmer goiug his dead
best, Workman won. This race was
the deoiding evont.and, wheu on the
last lap, it was seen that Workman
would win and England thereby gain
the odd e^ en", there was a scene of
wild enthusiasm, conservative Englishmen and women rushing on the
field to acclaim tho victor. A dense
crov d instantly surrounded Workman
and it was with great difficulty thut
the stewards succeeding in making a
way for him to tho pavilion. Here
another scone of frautio excitement
took place, members of the English
team rusing forward und crying "Well
ruu Workmon" while on the field the
crowd cheered and waved hats and
fr.ndkerohiefs. Workman was led to
the top balcony of the paviliou and
there bowed to tbe onthusiastio thousands, while cries of "Hurrah for Old
England" and the song, "For he's a
jolly good fellow" rent ihe air.
Just behind the oense crowd, with a
fow Americans, Yale and Harvard's
flags marking the spot, tno defeated
American runners were led back to
their room by their admirers. Boih
English and Americans oheered the
pluoky loserB aud amid a triumphant
blaring of "God Save tho Queen."
By the hand the crowds slowly dis

splendid jugdment in the quarter mile,

London, July 22.���The close of the
most dreary session of Parliament with
in the memory of men now living is in
sight. The mombers of the House of
Commons expect to flit about August
10, iu time to reach the moors for the
ooeniug of grouse shooting which begins August 12. The Government has
met many rebuffs in both Houses of
Parliament and the reduced majorities
with which they have carried some pet
measures have beeu constituted moral
victories for the Opposition. The Conservative Leaders in short have displayed their usual vacillation indiois-
ion and feebleness in insisting the demands of the classes against tbe
masses.
Lobbyiug has been made more prevalent than over before. Unfortunately for the success of the Liberal
party the leaders on that side have
shown little aptitude to score off the
numerous short-comings of the Tories
or to profit by the rebelliousness that
several Government measures awakened in the ranks of Lord Salisbury's adherents. Iu short the Liberals have
shown themselves rather demagogic
opposers than initiators of a line of
polioy. Otherwise it is believed they
inightniorethunoiii ii have foroed a dis-
olution of Parliament and appealed to
the country with sucoess.
The mobilization of tbe huge fleet
engaged in the present marn'ouvres ia
currying out a plan of operation of tbe
most interesting character. The plans
supposes Great Britain to be at war
with a continental power and a oon-
vey of British merchants ships carrying food, and supplies is crossing tbe
Atlantic from Halifax under escort.
The enemy send a fleet to interoept tbe
convoy and tbe British despatch a
fleet to intercept tbat of its adversary.
The enemy, however, relies upon numerous torpedo boats issuing from tbe
Irish ports for the purpose of harassing
tbe British while they capture the convoy. Great Britain on tbe other band
relies on the torpedo boat destroyers
to cope with the torpedo boats and
aive free place to the seagoing ships.
The real battle is thus, torpedo boats
against torpedo destoryers. The result
must be interesting and must largely
control the future polioy with reagrd
to the building of torpedo boat destroyers.
What President Kruger declined to
yield to the petition of the Uitlanders
aud the arguments of the British High
Commissioner of South Africa, Sir Alfred Milner, he seems inclined to yield
to the more forcible hints of the War
Ofllce, comprised iu uiiobservable but
obvious military preparations. The
sudden change on front by the Volks-
raad in adopting seven year's franchise proposition on last Tuesday is a
forcible demonstration of the olaim
tbat President Kruger oan and does
yield when the proper pressure is applied but not otherwise. As Mr.Cham-
herlain stated in the oourse of his
speech in tbe House of Commons on
Thursday in regard to modifications nf
tho franchise law iu the Transvaal the
concession do uot ond the difficulty's
hut aro merely a bnsiB for a uacifio settlement and former experience with
tho Transvaal have thougt tbe Government thnt it is inadvisable in anyway
to relax pressure until tbe contract is
concluded. The military preparations
therefore have been in no wise relaxed.
KUSKANOOK "EN FETE."
The picnio in connection with tbe
Kuskonook Sunday school, took plaoe
on Thursday 20th iust. in sohool
grove. And ulthougb the first of its
kind in Kuskonook it waa a great sun-
cess. Mauy thanks are due to tbe Sunday school teachers Mrs. Kennedy and
MisB Fletoher, who, although tney
have not the co-operation of a olergy-
man have ti ken much trouble to organize a Sunday school hern and also to
bring tho picnic to suoh a successful
issue. Lunch waB served at one
o'clook, and the usual abundance of
oakes, ice orearo.etc., showed up muoh
to tho pleasure of the children and visitors. After lunch games for the children were indulged in, including the
famous game of grab bag. At last
supper was served to tbe satisfaction
of all present and was much appreciated. After supper the picnio was adjourned to the cinder path where racing, skipping and jumping contests
took plnce for which very valuable
prizes wero given. After the prizes
were distributed a vote of thanks was
tendered Mrs. Kennedy and Miss
Fletcher, whioh was indeed due. The
children then dispersed and went to
home to play the picnic ovor again.
Every person had a pleasant time,

Of   special   interest   at tbe   present
time is a table published in a recent is
���ne of  The   Vancouver World.    It  is
a list of the  Provincial  constituencies
aud of their representatives in the Leg
ishiture. classifying   each as Miuister
ial or Opposition and   as  Conservative
or Liberal.    No oue  professes to know
what the Lieutenant-Governor will do.
or what  the Premier will  advise bim
to do; but there appears to bo a   growing conviction that the outcome of the
crisis in   the Cabinet wll. be a geueral
���lection.    In view    of   the   discussion
that has been going ou in regard to the
division of   parties  ou  Federal  Hues,
it  ia   interesting   to know  the  exact
political   complexion   of   the  present
Legislature.
In its table The World  distinguishes
between the Island and the Mainland.
The  Island  returns   fourteen   of   the
thirty-eight   members  of  the Legislature, of whom four are Ministerial and
ton  Opposition;   in    Federal   politics
eight   nre   Conservatives   and six  are
Liberals.    In detail they are: Aiberni.

Lib. ; Victoria South, Eberts, Opp. and
Con.   Of   the  24 j members representing the Mainland   IS   are  Ministerial
and six Opposiiloj.   while   in Federal
politics 11 of   tbem are  Conservatives
and 13 Liberals.    They are as follows i
Cassiar,    Irving. Opp.    and Lib .   and
Clifford,Opp., and Con. ; Cariboo, Hel

Of the full 3S members 22 are Ministerial in local politics and 16 Opposition, while in Dominiou politics they
are evenly divided, 19 of each. There
has been a general impression that the
Conservatives predominated, but Tbe
World's classification, which is doubtless correct, does not bear this out.
HIS INDIVIDUAL VIEW.
been demonstrated as to the breadth of
Canada. Uther thiugs being equal,
ocean commerce BeekB those ports
where the. greatest conveniences exist
for handling husmess. It would be
wise public policy to provide such facilities on the coast of this Province
as will attract traffio to nnd from the
Orient. It might be found desirable
to grant ii moderate bounty to certain
liues of steamers, say, for example, to
a line from Victoria and Vancouver
tn Skagway ou condition that the company reeetviug it would put ou one,
two or mole first class steamers uf high
speed.
"It   bas   beeu    demonstrated    tbat
British Columbia pays more per capi-
tn   iuto the Federal   revenue than any
of tbe other Provinces,   and   nlso   that
the Federal expenditures in this Province are not in proportion   to  its contributions.    While uot   claiming   that
thiB is the dual   tist   to be applied   to
ihe ratio of appropriations to  be mad
by Parliament. I submit it ought to be
taken into account, more especially   as
it can also be   shown   that  wisely di
routed  expenditures  on   public works
calculated to open the Provinoe to colonization   and   capital,   will   directly
recompense the treasury for the outlay
by increased revenue.    The suggestion
already made   in the Legislature   that
the Proviuce and the Dominion should
co-operate iu such woiks is, I  submit,
a   w ise one.
"If there is a part of the world
where labor aud capital ought to go
hand in baud it is British Columbia,
where there is such a field for both
and where oue can do nothing without
tbe other. It ought therefore uot to be
rt difficult matter to agree upon legis
lation which will give both adequate
protection. There ought to he as little
interference with the liberty of the individual as is cousistent with safety
to life, health aud property. Hence
laws to fix the hours of labor, or the
rate cf wages ought only to be passed
in extreme cases,aud after all attempts
to reconcile antagonistic views through
the instrumentality ot a Government
Board of Conciliation have proved
abortive. Arbitrary laws on thess subjects, beiug inelastic, cnunot conform to
the varying conditions under which
business must be carried on. aud therefore militate against the interests of
investors and workmen.
"Frequent changes in the laws applicable to the great industries of the
Province are injurious, and the right
of the Government to interfere witb
the affairs of private business concerns
should be reduced to a minimum. At
present in British Columbia there is
altogether too nincti power vested in
the hands of the Lienteuant-GovHrnor-
in-Couucil as regards certain business
corporations and private enteiprises.
"In   a   Proivnee   where there is  as
.nueh to be done  as in British Columbia, tbe qneet'on of   immigratiou will
always  be of  prest   importance.    We
need   people.    It   is   clear that   until
the labor  market   is   better   snpplied
than at present this  Provinoe   cannot
hope to be the   seat   of  manufactories
competing with those   of   other countries, notwithstanding the   abundan:e
of raw   material here.    Increased production of ihe necessities of life wi h-
in the Province is   the   first   step   towards the building   up   of a manufacturing community.    Hence the imnii-
irration of   persons   who will till   the
soil oueht to be encouraged.    Oriental
immigration is a menace  to every Occidental   county;   but  in   restricting
it care  ought to be taken not to create
a feeling  cf  antagonism   which   may
prevent the  development of commerce
with Atsia.
Until recently British Columbia
has not invited fcreigu capitalists to
iuvest in her miues. Hence it was not
material how the mining laws compared witb those of other countries. I
submit tbat as conditions have changed
in this respect, it is time these laws
were examined in tbe light cast upon
them by the experience of other mining communities''

New Westmistor ulso get- a vote of

the dispatch adds that it is ouly nn
instalment of 140,000, which will be
voted later as required Perhaps with
fuller information we shall learn that
the veto for Nelson's public buildings
is intended only for a beginning, aud
that more will be appropriated uext

genoe will havo a soothing t ffect on
Kosslaud, wbich is iudiguant to the
point of bursting nt the beggarly $15,���

Mr  W   1!   Mclunes, who nas left Ot
tawa for the session,    thinks   prorogation   is possible next   week.    He  also
says that it is doubtful if Sir   Wilfrid
Laurier   will   visit British   Columbia
this summer or fall,   as there   is every
likelihood   the Anglo-American   Coni-
���vissiou   will   resume at  Washington
next mouth.    A recent dispatch represented Senator Fairbanks ns entertaining the   belief  that   nn   arrangement
was possible   which   would permit  of
the resumption of the   Alaskan boundary    negotiations.    It   wonld   appear,
therefore, that tne alnim   expressed in
London a short time ago, that   further
negotiation was   hopeless,   was  without foundation.

Moved by the feeling that   as  editor
of The Colonist   he   could   not  speak
without   the restraint of   tbe   paper's
"personality," Mr.Lugrin ��drtree?es   a
loug letter on   the   politioal  situation I
to The Victoria Globe. Like all of Mr. j
Lugrin's productions, it   is a well tea- '
soned, able presentation of his view of
present conditions  and of what would
be best 10 derive from them in the interest  of   the   Province.   The   whole
tone of publio  seutiment, he says, bas
been  lowered    through   the  rivalries
aud intrigues of Ministers,   and   it   is
time that the public welfare should be
given   tlrst  place.    To   this   end   the
people should insist  on a   "business"
Government, one that understood   the
practical   requirements   of   the  Prov-1
ince and   that   was   resolutely   determined to   work   for them.    We  quote
tbat portion only of his letter in which
he   enumerates   the   several    matters
whioh in his opinion are pressing   for
immedittte   aud nerious consideration :
"The transportation problem ia  one!
of supreme importance  to   this   Proviuce, as tbere   are   large  areas, whose
natural wealth cannot tie ,'xploited un-!

by   an  elaborate  system of  roads and

be made out for the  construction of  a
second transcontinental railway than
was advanced  for  the construction of
the Canadian  Pacific.    The   idea   that
suoh a second line would be  hostile to
the   Cauadiau   Paolflo  Railway is  no
louger  tenable  in  view  of  what has |
It is worth while to preserve the re
port of the Lieutenant-Governor's   ad
dress to the Bennett Board   of   Trade,
as more is likely to be heard cf it.    it
is thus summarised   in   The   Bennett
Sun: "It was his great object in making his tour through Bennett and Atliu
to meet personally the mining and bus
iness men of   the district' and   obtain
from them their views and suggestions
on all   matters   affecting   tbe  welfare
of this   portion   of our Province     He
booed that these persoual   interviews,
together  with   observations  made  by
himself would place him in a  position
to suggest certain changes in our present mining laws and   iu other matters
in which tbe district   might   be interested, and it would be his great endeavor to have such legislation enacted as
he might   fiud   was absolutely   necessary   for   tbe  beter    progress   of   tbe

The Vernon News says: Wo have
received the illustrated supplement of
the Nelson Miner, which is a production in every way creditable to that
enterprising journal. The illustrations are well selected and serve abundantly to show forth the natural beauty

many interesting detail of the eoun-

in careful and convincing style. Ihe

prove an effective and far renohiug advertisement of Nelson and the splendid milling region surroundiung the

(Continued From First Page.)
We would be, and also our consumers
at the meroy, and dependent upou
some one man, whose duty would be
to look after and attend to each individual servico pine, -neter, drip and
branch main ; and, should we experience a degree of inclemency aud frost
in winter, as we had last year, it
would be difficult, to sny the least, to
anticipate the loss aud iuconvenienco
of frozen drips, pipes, meters, etc.,
and its liability of recurrence from
time to time.
We feel satisfied that after a careful
review of tho above facts���few of a
large number that we could produce
that the Council will have no hesitancy in approving of our plans of distribution as we have already set before
them.
With reference to the City paving or
asphalting any streets it has always
been, and will still remain our policy,
to lav service pipes to the curb hue
previous to th.i City undertaking such
work, to every premise, whether the
parties occupving those premises waut
gas or not.
