Many people have thought that the
driving of the first spiko would DJ a
good opportunity to have a small hele-
bration that would bring the fact of
Nelson's strides forward to the direct

Tlio  lirst   leg   wns to windward   and
here the Coufitnnce   showed   up   well.
There whs a slightly perceptible  gain
for Constance until the boats   began to
tack and the   Gleneairn, proceeded   to
tuck practically tor a   buoy   somewhat
out of the coms�� for the   day.    At any
rate  tlio  Constance   had   made   such
headway tbat  she rounded    the first
buoy four minutes and 48  seconds   before (jli'iK'iiirn.    It was   when taoking
for  tins buoy that     Glancairii   drew
quite a distance behind.    She was for
awhile apparently, taoking for n buoy
furthet south altogether.    How Glen-
cairn's skipper, who  knows   the   lake
so well, tucked out so far to apparently
be making for. ftuothei buoy, was variously commented upon.   At any jate.,ij.

her greatest loss, tho   Constance  turning llio buoy   as   above   stated   nearly

subsequent leg, with the   excoption  of
tho s vend leg  of   the   second  round
when she lost five seconds.     A noticeable fea'me of the   race   was   tbat   in
going round the  bnoys   the Gleneairn
rould get   her spinnaker   out immediately while   the Coustanco waa   much
slower, covering 16 to 90 yards   hofore
doing so.    This   was   u   straight gain

Glenoalth run much belt r before   the
wind, ber large   spinnnker giving her
tins    advantage   but   the    American
boat pointed much the best.    The Constance pointed almost straight into the
wind.    The   moderate    south    west
bre��ze of tho morning stiffened slightly
as the day progressed  but again moderated somewhat.  Tho sailing of today
showed that   the   American  boat  has
the advantage jii the lighter wind and
beating to  windward   she   can  show
Gleneairn the way but before the wind
she is at some disadvantage on account
of sail area.   Mr. Crnno and his  crew
received   the    congratulations  of   the
many friends thev have made in Montreal  upon their day's   saooesfl    and
the Canadian crew took then defeat in
a sportsmanlike Bpirit.    The oonrhc tomorrow will be   triangular  out.    The

hours 20 minutes   and   25 seconds and
(���lapsed   time of   Gleneairn.   was  two
hours 22 minutes and 40 seconds.
Last year tho American bout won
the first raco of the series but lost the
rest. Perhaps history is about to repeat itself. The contest is the best three
out of five races.
A Splendid Programme   is Being Prepared for the Occasion.

and Nelson will battle for tho Provincial championship nt Brockton Point.
Nelson enthusiasts are confident of
their team's ability to annex the scalps
of every lacrosse twelve on the Coast,
but here a different opinion is not unnaturally entertained. In the meantime a bot game wilt take place in

PROROGRATION    NEXT    WEEK.
��ir Wilfrid and Sir Charles Come to on
Understanding.
Ottawa, July 28.���Prorogration will
take place at the end of next week.
When the House met this afternoon Sir
Wilfrid Lnurier said that he Had a conference with the Leader of the Opposition yesterday and that as Sir Charles
leuves for England shortly it was arranged to olose Parliament as early as
possible. He said there was no reason
why prorogration should not be reach
ed toward te end of next week. To
faoiliate the work of the session he
agreed with bis honorable fiieud to
drop the Senate resolution for the
present session.    He also consented  to
AUSTKALIANS   BATTING   WELL.
In spite of the severe critiois.ns
whioh, for fome unexplicable r ason,
have lately been hurled at the Was
Company by that erratic organ the
Tribune, the said company still persists iu forging ahenri. Yesterday
Messrs. Merrifield aud Doolittle practically settled the site question; They
were given possession of tho land
pending the completion of the pur
chase hy the London reprsentatives
the owners.
So   yes.erday   afternoon    Engineer
Morris proceeded with a  gang of men
to commence excavating for the foundations of the new   Gas   Works.    It  so
happens   that tbe laud in question has
attracted    the   eagle   eye   of certain
agrarian Celestials who, have "squatted" there and laid out vegetables   gardens    on    it      When    Mr.     Morris
and bis men commenced operations the
yellow gardeners one by one assembled
to see   the   fun   and   enquire  "wash
mailer."   Presently  n   fine     crop   of
potatoes was attacked hy the   marauders. This evidently distirbed the Mongols   for   they     immediately    broke
nut    into     animuted     conversation.
Then    gesticulating   v'olently,    they
like   tbe   herd    of    gaderene   swine,
rushed  violently up a steep place, and
finally fled to the town to seek a cunning
lawyer who would deliter them   from
the white man's   oppression.    History
does not relate bow tbey fared  in   the
town.    The   Chinese  attorney-general
was at that time watching some aldermen wbo  were   testing Ihe nickel-in-
the slot machine nt  the   Phair   Hotel.
Possibly his  yellow olicuts were  disappointed at  not  finding him   ~
official  seat for up to n late
night, no legal notice
on the representatives  of the gas company.
C< nstrnction work will now proceed
rapidly under the supervision of Mr.
Merrifield and the energetic doctor. It
is sad that not content with making
Baker street a "hog wallow" the gas
company will lay waste a fair garden.
Still citizens are in urgent need of
gas, excepting pjrhups the Editor of
the Tribune, who already possesses a

ANOTHER REPORT.
Sandon, July 28.���A terrible aooideut
occurred today at Slooan Sovereign
mine about a mile from Sandon. E.
S. Williams and H. E. Grouse who
had a contract of 700 feet tunnel commenced work thfs morning with a Burleigh drill. About 3 :80 p. m. having
loaded upon .seven five foot holes commenced to fuse nnd fire. Owing to
the groat amount of surface water they
were compelled to "spit" one hole he-
fore fusing tbe next. It is conjectured
that the first fuBe was cut too short
and fired before expected. A mucker
wbo had just left the tunnel was the
first to nud the men. Williams was
instantly killed. His skull was crushed in. Grouse lay two feet from him.
Grouse is alive bnt uuconosions having sustained several cranial injuries.
His condition ia very criticai. Both
men were buried by rock. They must
have been in the face of the tunnel
when the blast exploded, If Orouse
recovers he will have had a most miraculous escape. Grouse was brought
to the Mineis' Union hospital, and
William's remains to Sandon for interment. Both men were experienced
miners. It cunot be ascertained at
present where they belong.
iug much seems to have beeu accomplished by the High Commission siuce
arms to the number of four hundred
were surrendered by the contending
factions.
Justice Chambers, being dissatisfied
with the support extended to his court
by the commissioners, will leave today
tor Washington.    Their   action iu refusing   the   aid   asked for   to  sustain
the court's   authority   is said to   have
heen prompted  by dispatches  received
hy the German commissioner from his
home Government, which, it is claimed, is greatly   displeased with his roc-1
ognition of decision of  Supreme Court
iu tbe kingship  case.    Last  week the
Chief Justice  issued orders to  certain
townB  in Sannai to  appear before the
Supreme   court  in   certain civil cases
where the   judgment of o.iurt bad  not
been complied with, Chief Lanaoi   ordered tbem   not   to obey   telling   the
towns to pay no attention to the orders
of court, which   were only   words  on
paper.    Some   towns   did not  appear,
while from the   remaining   jnes  only
Malietoa men  appeared.    The Malaafa
men   openly  defied   the courts.     The
Chief Justice then  asked the commissioners  to support his   authority with
warships   if   necessary  and   on  their
refusal deoided  to leave   Samoa.   The
commissioners  expect  to sail  for  the
United States on the Bangor  on  July
10th.

Loudon, July 28.���In the House of
Lords today the earl of Oamperdown,
culled attention to the Transvaal situation. The Earl of Douraven and
others followed, all declaring that any
departure from the recognized policy
of the Government would he an act of
inestimable danger to the position of
Hieefr Britain, net only in South Africa, but it might shake the Imperial
existence of Great Britain itself. Lord
Selbor^e, Under Secretary for tbe Colonies, made a statement similar in purport to that- made in tbe. House of
Commons by Mr. Chamberlain.
Lord Salisbury reminded the House
that he absolutely dissented from tbe
policy of 1881, whioh was tainted with
the grave fault of optimism. Nevertheless President Kruger assented to the
Protocol of the 1881 convention to
frieudly co-operation of tne races,
while he has since taken un absolutely
opposite line his one effeot being to
separate the English nnd South African Governments and to reduce the
English to the status of a subjugated
race. He agreed that if tbe concessions were made and carried out the
Government might look tor a reward to
a peaceful solution of the crisis. Her
Majesty's Government, he said, had
lint their hands to the plough and certainly did not intend to withdraw
them.
The morning papers generally express satisfaction with the outcome of
yesterday's debate in the House. Tbe
Times says: "The reBplt of the discussion is all tbat the Ministers could
i desire. If it has done nothing else, it
I has exploded the delusion that Mr.
Chamberlain is at variance with Mr.
Balfour and Lord Salisbury in the
Trnsvaal controversy. The Daily News
remarks upon the large measure of
agreemnet, which the debate revealed
between the Liberal and Conservative
narties and says: "When this fact is
recognized it ought to have a most
snkitory effect in South Afrioa and
contribute to a powerful   settlement."
The Spokesman-Review   has tbe foi
lowing anent   tho  political faroe   recently enacted at Viotoria :     Little by
little the truth about the   Government
caucus  last  night has leaked out,   in
spite ot the promises of secrecy  by the
members wbo  were   present.    One  of
the  main reasons that   Speaker Forester,   Munro, ot Chilliwack and  other
former Martin   supporters   went  back
on him was because of the charges that
Attorney-Geueral Martin's  moral life
wasnot as it should be .    Martin boldly challenged   those   who made  these
insinuations   to put them iu   writing
and sign them, but tin-is, of course, no
one was   inclined to    do.    No motion
was put  to  the  meeting,   as  Martin
promised   that as   tie  majority  were
against bim   he would send in Ins resignation as  attorney-general.    This he
did tbis afternoon, writing   his formal
resignation and placing it in the hands
of   tbe   Lieutenant-Governor's   secretary.    Of   course   it  can not be acted
upon until the Lieutenant-Governor returns from Atlin in a few days   more.
Martin,   however  Bays    he   will not
resign his seat in  the House hut us   a
private menmber will  romain. to fight
the   men   who   have ousted him from
office.
At 6:30 this evening Martin had a
row ^on Trounce avenue, the most
prominent place in the business center, with W. 0. Niohol, editor of the
Vancouver Province, the paper was
instrumental in bringing him into
public life in B. C. Tho paper, in
view of reoent events, has gone back
on Martiu, and this has mnde him
very angry. Nichol approached Martin as the latter was talking with
group of friends and wished the Attorney-General good evening Martin
turned round with a contemptuous
grunt and taunted Nichol with deserting him, furthermore saying that he
bid been instrumental in keeping Niohol in his present position. Tbe lie
direct passed between them and Martin gave Niohol a great tongue lashing
callirg bim a '"son of a gun" and
roasting bim roundly. No blows, however were struck, thought it looked
at first   like a  fight.
Victoria,July 28.���A oable from London tbis morning announoes that the
appeal cf Brydeu against the Union
Colliery Company has been allowed by
the Privy Council, the section of the
Coal Mines Regulation Act prohibiting the employment of O.iineso, underground in coal mines being declared
unconstitutional and tbe judgment of
tbe Full Court of British Columbia to
the contrary being set aside.
Justice Martin in the supreme court
today heard an application in Gordan
vs. Webster, an action brought by Lord
Aberdeen, owner of the Coldstream
ranch iu Yale district, for damages
caused by the defendant in diverting
water from certain ditches belonging
to the plaintiff Lord Aberdeen is
the owner of water records and the defendant refuses to lease the water ftr
irrigation purposes am. has, according
to the affidavit filed, cut the ditch and
is wrongfully using the water. An
injunction was granted restraining
him from further interferring with the
ditch.
The steamer Queen Oity, whioh returned from New Copenhagen aud
way ports of the west coast this morning, brought news of a new ooal strike
which promises to add to tbe rapidly
growing industries of the Coast, a
mine capable of making big shipments
monthly.
The coal was found near Quatsiino
on the property of West Vancouver
Commercial Oompany, and about fonr
miles from their present workings. A
six loot seam of likely looking ooal
has been found out Six feet down, it
is close to the salt water and run* from
a short distance above the high water
to same distance below water. A
number of men are taking out coal
there for the company.
The officers of the Queen Oity gave
tbe coal a test, and tbey speak very
highly of it. Fifteen tons of surface
pickings were loaded and used on tbe
voyage down. It gave satisfaction to
tbe engineers there being little smoke
aud comparatively little aab.

Porsifltent   Rumor That the O. P.
Will Part With It.
The rumors that the Wur Eagle peo.
pie are   about to   purchase  tbe   Trail
smelter from the 0.   P.   R. are  again
i uncut aud it looks us if  the deal was
about to  be  put   through.    It is well
known   that the C. P.   R.   went  into
the smelter business under protest,   as
it were, aud no one would be surprised
to see them  evince a desire to get  ont
of it.   The influence of the Hall Mines
would he used to effect this end as the
0. P. R. competition1 is a rathetr hard
one to meet.    With   the company   ont
of the   business  both smelters   would
be put on an equal basis with the railway hauling to both   and showing  favor to neither.    The   Hall   Mines   has
never hud reason to complain of-the 0.
P. R. 's treatment bnt at the same lime
the sale of the Trail smelter to private
parties would relieve the situation.
Tho Goodcrham-Blacks took people
will have any amount of ore to treat
with tbe War Eagle as it is and the
St. Eugene as it will be when development comment os on the elaborate scale
that has been decided upon. A smelter would come in very handy to tbem
and they undoubtedly want one. If
they are anxious to buy and the C. P.
R. is anxious to sell there should not
he much difficulty in striking a bargain.

ALASKAN   BOUNDARY.
t-rialists experience consideruhle-sut-
sfaction no doubt in counting noBes ;
ut there   is   n   vacancy  to   fill,   and
meantime   the   sensation   will not  be
one of perfeit hnppinesB.
The Spokesman-Review, of Spokane, does not correctly diagnose tht
caae when it says that the weather if
rather hot for Canada to be goto)?
about With a chip ou her sbouldt r.
Its mistake is In regard to the ohip;
there is no such thing. Both the leader of the Government and the leader Ol
tho Opposition were quite within the
bounds of reason in their remarks on
the Alaskan boundary question the
other day. What Sir Charles Tuppei
proposed was that tho Government
should take power to strengthen itt
hands iu the negotiations with the
United States. He did not advocate
non-intercourse. He would build u
lailway to Dawson and thus providr
indepenleut access to tbe Yukon country, and be would give authority to tht
Government to exclude Americaii
miners. This might provoke retaliation, but it would only be putting
Cauadians ou a level with their neigh-
bo. s, aud the positiou would enable
tbem to drive a better bargain. Sir
Wiltrid Laurier would not even go
this far. He deprocated nnj action
which the United States could possibly
mistake for nufrieudliuess. Thjre
was no chip, or, if there was, a larger
aud more menacing one constantly
adorns the shoulder of Uncle Sara, and
our Spokane contemporary might employ itself to more purpose if it were
to use such persuasion as it can command to have it removed.
The Canadian Premier has still a
touching faith in sunny ways. He
would do nothing to exasperate Amer
icans, whom he regards somewhat in
the light of spoiled children. A settlement of the boundary question was
thought possible thiough compromise;
that, now, was a hope he no longer
entertained, but he did not despair of
arbitration. Both parties were agreed
that there should be arbitration, but
unfortunately they could not agree on
tho questions to be submitted for reference. What question, matter, or thing
wonld serve better than the Treaty
itself? Let the arbitrators be chosen,
aud the Treaty handed them, with the
request that tbey declare what it
means. That is all the referende the
case demands. The Treaty defines the
boundary, but the language is so obscure or doubtful that different meanings are extracted from it. The task
of the arbitrators would be to determine its meaning, or if that were impossible to ascribe a meaning and lay it
down aB 4u irrevocable settlement of
the diBpute. There should be no difficulty as to tbe reference ; the Treaty it-
Belf, juBt aB it is, is the thing to be referred.
We gather from cables tbat in London they do not despair of compromise
ns hopelessly as Sir Wilfrid Laurier.
Indeed, it would almost seem as if
negotiations were still in progress,
with compromise as the basis. Canadians will not object *o a oompromiBe
settlement, if within measurable distance of being a reasonable one. They
will objeot.however, if all theoomprom-
1 e is at their expense. That would seem
ro be the aim of the Washington people. They will give us the free use of a
port into and out of the Yukon, if we
abandon our claim to any part of the
Lynn Canal. To do that would he to
abandon tbe whole oase; it would be
to concede everything to the United
Stall's,ami to put ousrelves on the charity of Our neighbors. That will not
do. The Mother Country is flick and
tired of the squabble,' no doubt, and
is besides anxious to keep on good
terniB with the United States. Canada
will oheerfnlly submit to very substantial sacrifice, if necessary to oblige
the Mother Country ; but this would
be too much. Let tho arbitrators take
the Treaty into their hands, and decide what it means. If thoy shall say
that wo have no claim to the Lynn
Canal, then let us, like manly Cnuad-
uniH. bargain for a port and pay for it
if we must have ouo.
Tho SaliBbtiT.y Government has
weathered four years of storms bravely,
iut latterly it has shown signs of
4oing to pieces. Every election for
���tevernl months has been disappointing
to the Unionists; tllty have either
ost seats,or their majorities bave been
reduced. The last Weekly Times to
aand contains the returns of three.
In St. Panoras a Unionist majority of
189 has dropped to 1ST. In the Osgold-
cross Division of Yorkshire a Liberal
najority of 1,085 in 180(1 has run up to
1,925. At the last general election
Oldham returned two Conservatives by
a majority of (105 ; the other day two
'.liberals were elected by a majority
if 1.410. It is a case of dry rot-
There may be another session of this
Parliament, bnt with electious running
against them iu this fashion Ministers
mav decide on dissolution before another February comes around.
BEAR     BECOMING    EXCLUSIVE.
Londou, LoJly 29.���Accortliug to
the St. Petersburg correspondent of
tbe Daily Mail, the Russian Government has introduced a compelsorv
passport system for Taie-Li-Wau,
and Port Arthur, preventing Englishmen and AmericauE from travelling
here.
Mr. Mintin is out, or will be out as
soon as His Honor returns to show him
the door. And now the publio are
scarcely less corious than befova to
know what is to happen next. One
correspondent at tho oupital says that
there will be no coalition, which is
not unlikely. A few months ago a
leader of the Ministerial party, Mr.
Martin goes out of it without influence
enough to take one follower with him.
Th8t party, villi the Speaker, numbered 22, against Hi of tho Opposition.
Mr. Martin is now an enemy, and his
nature is greatly altered if he will not
prove au implacable one. His defection leaves the numbers 21 to 17.
With three of a majority aud with
tbe Speaker as a reserve tho Government oan worry along, if it oan only
provide itself with un Attorney-General. Mr. Henderson, of New Westminster, is spoken of, but he will not
get tbe promotion for the very good
reason that he could not secure bis re-
eleotion. The situation has beeu rendered comparatively pleasant by tho
departure of   Mr. Martin,   and Minis-

worthy of consideration at  the hands
of the homemakers of   Nelson, but tha
display of   piotnres that fill MoArthur

miles to see.    By a combination of cir
^instances   MoArthur  #   Co.,   were
able to purchase   the   entire   stock   of
samples of art goods brought to   town
by the  traveler   for   Menzies &   Turner  of   Toronto.    They     bonght   the

DAN  GODFREY'S BAND.
The Miner mentioned incidentally a
few days ago, that a movement wbb on
foot totiy and   arrange   for a visit  to
Nelson of Lieut. Daii  Godfrey's world
rennnwed  band.    The  movement yesterday took a practical shape for a subscription Ust was got out and, iu about
three  hours over 100  names, were1 eh-'
tered on it.   Tbe  pioposal   at  present
ia to secure the  rink aitfl charge |!.60
for reserved  seats and  f!   for  general
admission.   It has a1s<n been suggested
that, weather permitting,a second performance he arranged for  on   the .recreation   ground   on the  afternoon' of
the day following upon that on' vthlch
the oonnert at the rink takes place.    It
is possible that the Oity Council might
K'M, their Way to asssist the citizens by
a   substantial   subscription.    The   opportunity   of bringing such An attraction to Nelson iB exceptional and it is
greatlv   to  be   hoped that those  who
have interested themselves in the mat-
tar will meet with  Buccfiss.   Mr.   J.
E. Amiable will he glad to receive tho
names   of   those   who   are    patriotic
enough to  guarantee  the   purchase of
one or more seats.     It is understood
that Rossland has   guaranteed the; necessary sum whioh the  advance  agent
asks for ' before  he  can arrange for 11
performance.   This   agent   wrote to a
gentleman   in   Nelson  and   said   that
as there are 40 performers in tho band,
Lieut.   Dan  Godfrey could not  afford
to oome   here   unless   a  guarantee  of
^1000  could be obtained.    It  therefore
over 500 loyal ' citizens  oan  he found
who will chip   in with   $1,50 apiece,
we shall all have the privilege of hearing the  finest  military   band in the
world,      '. -.
The date for whioh the visit will���in
the event of the required guarantee
being forthcoming���be arranged is September 9.

Messrs. Warwick & Bonner are in
from the Diddie and Smuggler claims
on 1'orcupine creeks. They bronght
in some nice looking rock, and report
that the property is looking favorable.
They are going back to do more
work.
Messrs, Ruddy and Walker who
have been doing assessment work on
tbeir property on 16 Mile creek returned last evening, bringing in some
very rick looking copper ore. The
place from which the ore was taken is
about three feet in width, and has
every indication of permanency.
Lately there nas been some very good
locations made on Stewart creek.
This oreek has not had very much
work done on it. aud I think that as
rich mineral is to be found there as in
other parts of this valley.

PRIVY  COUNCIL   DECISIONS.
London, July 28.��� Tho Privy Council has dismissed tbe appeal from
the judgment of the Supreme Court
of Canada in tho case of the Montreal
Gas Company against Oadiean. Their
lordships held tbat the liability of a
consumer was to pay for the gas
Supplied to him and therefore }he company wiih justifiod in cutting off the
gas from Cadieau's two houses because he had not paid for gas used in
one of them.
The Privy Council has allowed the
appeal in tbe caao of the Union col-
liery company of British Columbia
against Brydeii, from the deoisiou of
tlio Supreme Court of British Columbia, whiob granted an injunction
against the employment of Chlnumou
underground. Their lordships held
that section four of the CoalMiues Regulation in as fur as it related to Chinamen was ultra vires of the Provincial
Legislature of British Columbia and
therefore illegal.
