SHAMROCK LOSES
The American Yacht Comes Out Nearly
Ten Minutes Ahead.
AND THE WINDS FOLLOW FAR ABAFT
After Seven Tria]s a Good Breeze Gives an Opportunity
For ihe Rival Craft to Show Their Mettle.
Shamrock Is Not Beaten Yet.
New York Uct. 16 -rlh crews of
liith yachts had breakfast e;u!\ and
when they "turned to'' about si.\ it
was with a will, for in spits' of the
linzy weather, theie was n go- il I r-1 ze

Shamrock started in tow ot the Lawrence A Simons a little later. Covers
were kept on the mainsails and club
topsails to keep them rir^ until the last
moment as there was just inniigli tine
ruin to dampen them. At 10 o'olook
the Coin nil ia's crew began hnistiug
thu mainsail. It was set 111 five mil -
iites. Tho Sbumiock's mainsail begun
to go up at the sumo time but it was
fully 15 miuutes before the sail was
set. When the yachts were ready, the
wind was fairly steady finni the east
ward, blowing about ten miles au
hour,the water smooth mid sky cloudy,
Two miles was about the limit of observation, owing to heavy mists.
At 10:50 both yachts cast off tlnir
tow lines, broke out their jins anil
mast-headed their No. 2. club topsails
The Columbia also sent up her baby
jib topsail on tho stuy. At tho same
time the committee boat, Walter Luoh-
enbaob, anchored due south of the
Sandy Honk Lightship and sent up the
ciniise signal. It was east, making a
-Hi��t dead to windward for the yachts
of fifteen miles and a run hack, if the
wind held from the Hume quarter.
The regatta committee meant bus uess

und to 10:4B tho preparatory signal wus

spb i i ������ view ot tha start nnd foi ten
minutes after it ��.as anxious oms for
both \a tit's friends. After that, it
.mis all over but the sheeting, in li\e
minutes the Columbia had widened
the distance to windward between herself and the Shamrock fully a length,
She heeled more thau tne latter noa:,
but her sails were all full and she was
pointing higher from tne moment she
started, Captain Hogarth, thinking
bis boat would be able to ODtfoot the
Columbia sufficiently to tack across her
bnw ii little later, gave her a good rap
full. The green boat re.spn-ided nobly
and tn some it appeared that she was
passing the Columbia very fast. So
she was, but she was losing windward
ground every niinnte.
When the Shamrock tacked to port
11:15 and the Columbia _0 seconds
later, it was seen that Barr had so
placed his boat on the weather bow of
the Shamrock as to spill the back
v-iud into the Shamrock's sails. Hogarth was obliged to keep bioad off
for about thirty seonnds to get out from
under the Columbia's lee. By 11:20
the Bristol boat was quite nn eighth of
a mile to windward and outfooled
her rival al tho time. Captain Hogarth finding that the Shamrock simply would not poiut as high as the Co
luiiibin, flattened down his shoots as
hard as he dared and had to be contented with giving her a good full aud
let her go at that. At 11 :4o 30
when the Sh nirock tauked to pert, the
Columbia was fully a qnatter of a mile
to windward of her. Captain Hogarth
wus growing desperate and he resorted
in his short ticking tactics, in hoie
thnt his bunt would fore reiteh sufflci
ently to make a material gain to wind
ward. Some idea may be gathered of
j tb" quick work thnt followed when it

yaoht well in hand, being al the tiiui

flat aft, be began to lull the moment
Hogarth did, and shoot ng the Columbia across the BhuniOOk'e wake he
sent her ucriss tho line nioio than fifty
yards to windward of the Ohallengi r
and with such a good oveilap on her
that according to the offioial time she
was only three seconds astern.
Both yaohtR were now close hauled
ou the starboard tack aud were carrying exactly tho same sail, mainsail,
club topsail, jib, foresail and babyjib
topsail. As soon as sheets woie
trimmed all hands except the men stationed at tbe head sheets, jumped for
tho weather side and huddled close
down to the starboard soil, while the
skippers watcned each other like
hawks.
There were not many excursion
steamers out iu tin.e to see the start
The principal ones weie: The steam
yachts Corsair, Erin and Niugara; the
uxcursiou boats Ropublic, Grand He-
public, Monmoath aL'i Anglo; the rev-

might iioiiit higher, but it" was evidently In vain, for in 10 minutes they
set the sail back again. It was taken
in 20 minutes lutei for a few minutes.
Each yacht made 22 tacks iu
Windward work and in all these the
Shamrock took the initiative, dipt.
Barr waited for Hogarth to tack and
with but one or two exceptions ho put
the Columbia about within three seconds of the other boat. The laBt half
dozen tacks were longer than the
others. The outermark which had
been obs.inred by mist wbb visible after 1 o'clock. The wind grew lighter
as they approached, but it increased
in force a little as the Columbia made
her last tnck at 1 :4(i. 80 She looked
very handsome as she approached the
mark on the port tack, a couple of hor
smooth bronze bilge plates showing on
her weather side. Smartly tho crew
launched her spinnaker hoom out, to
port before she had fairly made the
' turn and squared  away on   her home
ward course. The great sail was broken out from steps the same moment,
the main boom siding far off to starboard. They were actually eighty rive
seconds setting the spinnaker, The
Shamrock's men beat them five seconds in this work. Tbe time at the
turn was: Columbia, 1:48.19; Shamrock, 1:58 08. This shows the Columbia
wns niue minutes, 49 seconds ahead
when she rounded the mark. The
elapsed time of the Culnmbia for 15
miles was two bonis, 47 minutes, 18
seconds; foi the Shamrock, two hours,
57 minutes, live seconds, showing that
Columbia's gain on actual start nine
minutes, 17 seconds. This, indeed,was
a great vietoiy for the Columbia, for
both yachts had covered the distance in
a steady breeze and at no time were
thoy fur enough apart tn benefit by any
putf of wind. The Columbia's balloon
jib topsail was set ininiediately after
the spinnaker aud tha head sails hauled
down, she began ber 15 mile run to
the finish at a speed of about eight
kiwis an hour The Shamrock's balloon
jib topsail was set several minutes after rounding the enter mark and for a
time it seemed as though she was overhauling the Cdnuibia. At the time
this appeared to be a reasonable o-in
elusion, because when she began, the
st-rn boat was in the position to take
advantage of any -quails tnat might
oouie along, It soon became evident,
however, th -t her apparent Rain was
nuly imaginative ami Colnmbia was
nut only holding her own, but us the
lignris showed later she was really
gaining in tbe run before the wind.
Mile after mile they tiaveli-d lost, sight
ot by tho fleet by reason of the chunks
of mist thai came along. The finish
line marked by the committee boat
and Sandy Honk Lightship, was not
visible until the yachts were within a
couple of miles of it. Then there was
a rush of steamers to reach the goal
ahead of the yachts. It could not be
called an exciting finish uor was it a
tamo oue altogether. So few boats
were present to witness it and the
weather was so depressing that, as a
spectacular one, the fluish might be
called poor. Both in time and distance the yachts were so far apart tbat
it was a rather poor finish from a
sportmans standpoint. When the Columbia, hor great mainsail broad off
to starboard and her akyreaching spinnaker to port, swept across the line at
3:45.59 the Shnmrook was hardly visible astern, only the outline of her sail
being traceable in the mist. Nine
minutes and eleven seconds iu time
elapsed between the finishing of the
Columbia and the Shamrock, which
means in distnact about a mile und a
half.
Finish time: Columbia, 8:54.59;
Shnmrook, 4:05.10.
The official summary is:
Elapsed time of Columbia, from the
outer mark to the finish was two honrs
six minutes, 40 seconds; the Sbam-
rock, two hours, seven minutes, two
seconds.
The Columbia having gaiued 32 seconds.
Colnmbia, start, 11:01.00; finish,

SOMETHING   OF  A FAILURE.
London, Oct. 10 ���A somewhat revised edition of Hall Oaiuo's "The
Christain" was produced at the Duko
of York's theatre this evoniug. But
whether because of the long heralded
advent of tho play or for failure to secure what England has been lod to believe an ideal Amenonii cast, the performance in a mnunor failed to realize
what were undoubtedly high expectations. Evelyn Mellar seemed misplaced
in the part of "Glory Quaille" and
Herbert Warring, as 'John Storm,"
lacked much thai might hnve made a
complete performance. The Ptince
of Wales, the Duke of Cambridge,
Canon Wilbeforce Lady August Hni
ris, Lady Violet Brassy aud Sir Edward Lawsou were conspicuous in Unboxes.
BRITISH COLUMBIA SALMON.
Tacomn, Oct. 1(1.���A. C. Little,
State Fish Commissioner, has received
a report of an examination of Chilli-
whack Lake nnd River, a trihutray of
the Fi'dser, which heads In Whatcom
county, north of Mount Baker.       ������
The exaniinining party report that
they found but few sockeyes iu the
lake, which is just across tbe boundary, about two miles in British teiri-
lory. Mr. Little is of the opinion,
however, that the party arrived at the
lake tno late in the season, as current
repi rt lias for years given the lake
ciedi for being a favorite haunt of
these fish.
"While it may seam a little strange,
at first glanee. to be propogating fish
in a rivi r in British Columbia, it is a
good proposition," remarked the Commissioner "Tbe sockeye is the mo-t
valuable fish that comes int the Sound.
Of the catch ot the present season, estimated at 8,"i4,H00 cases. 514 000 ere
sockeyes, 80,000 chindoks, 388,000
hunibpaoks and about 72,000 silver and
dog salmon.
. "Praolii-ally all of the sockeyes are
Fruser River fish, and fullv 000,000
and mny e 050,000 of ihe 854.000 eases
Bre Fruser Ri.er fish, so Ton s-e the
importance to Sound fishermen of
keeping up the supply of fish in the
Fraser.
"We have now several hatcheries on
tbe streams tributary to the Sonud,
built this year, but only one, Baker
Lake, has been in operations and that
not long enough to get any returns.
Next yoar ought to show returns from
Baker Lake hatchery
"The fish for Fraser river come in
the Straits and swarm around the islands, seldom coming further south
thau Port Madison. A few sockeyes
-���tin up the Skagit and we hope to
make that a good sookeye stream, but
the best proposition is the Fraser.
"My plan is to put a hatchery on
tho Chiliwack River, above the Like,
across on our side of the line. The
stream is an idenl one for a sockeye
hatcheiy and the lake favorable to tbe
suocesa of the enterprise and such a
hatchery ought to be a most valuable
addition to the fishing industries of
this State.
"In this region, the sockeye or blue
back, is practically extinct. There
are a few in Wallowa Lake and a few
in Oregni Lake, but not enough to out
any figure in the fish output of that
State. While I believe wo can make
several of our Puget Sound streams
good fish streams and that probably the
Skagit aud perhaps the Nnoksack and
other streams mav make good sookeye
streams, yet the importance of Fraser
River should not be overlooked."

London, Oct. 10.���The Colonial
Office issued this evening tbe correspondence between Mr. Chamberlain
aud Sir Alfred Miluer, British High
Commissioner in South Africa respecting the Transvaal controversy, from
September 8 to October 12. Tbo salient point of principal dispatches, however, has been already published.
Some of the telegrams, tieating of side
issues, are interesting.
For instance, the Goveruor of Natal,
Sir Walter Francis Healy-Hutchiniiin,
wired Mr. Chamberlain on October 2nd
as fo'.lows. "Diuusul reports that natives in tho Vrybeid district of Transvaal are becoming desperate aud it is
feared that they will not remain quiet
much longer. The Boers are seizing
their cattle, and the Chief implores
the British Government to intervene.
I havo replied that it is best for the
���olus to remain quiet. My opinion
is, however, that the natives iu Vry-
heid district may possibly rise against
the Boors tn oase of war. They will
not much longer submit to the treatment they have had at the hands of
the Boers.
On September 20, Mr Chamberlain
Bent the following to the British High
Commissioner. "I think that if the
Government of the South African Republic commence hostilities, it wouln
be well for vou to warn President Kruger, that in view of the persistant ru
mors that huve reached H r Majesty's
Government as to threats to murner
British subjects, he and his Govern-
meui are expected to uroieci the lives
i.ud properly ni peaceable people, lint-

Ii is considered probabb that Mr.
Morley will vote for a hostili amendment if Sir Henry Carupbell-Banner-
mau moves what ho culls a reasonable
and appropriate one.
The Irish- leaders, however, are certain to move an amendment condemning the Government's policy, though
their follovsing in a discussion and the
lobby is likely to be small.
The Dally Mail's correspondent at
Colesburg has been inquiring regarding the matter and on the whole think
ihe chances are agaiust a rising, He

THE IMMEDIATE OUTLOOK.
Referring to the wilful exaggeration
of the number of men employed in the
mines iu the region of Sandon, The
Mining Review of that place says, after giving the correct figures in detail:
"In all there are in these mines less
than fifty men working now, when
under the old law they would be working five hundred strong. Thn figures
are the conclusive proof whether or
not the Eight-Hour law is injuring
the Slocan.1' The Miner has never
said more than this. It was never
claimed that work was wholly suspended. All through the Slocan men
are at work developing properties,
and this will go on though every producing mine iu the Kootenays should
shut down. Development has not
ceased and will not cease. But work
in the mines proper has been paralysed
in consequence of  differences  created
there is none at all as to the outcome
of the present muddle in British Colnmbia. Political affairs have got into sach a tangle thnt only a dissolution
can put them into any sort of workable shape again. Thn present Government cannot go mi. That is not a
matter of opinion merely, but is a
simple calculation in figures. Governments that exist by favor of _egisln-
tuies or Parliaments cannot live without majorities. The Semlin Government uever possessed oue that was bit
enough and stnble enough to put anxiety aside, and such as it was has been
frightfully mangled of late. There is
not a man in the Province with the
least knowledge of the situation and
with political sagacity enough to distinguish between the Government side
and the Opposition side who does not
know that present Ministers have lost
control of the House, To lose control
means resignation or defeat, and with
a [legislature composed ai at present
another Government that could sur-
I'liunil themselves with an assured and
reliable majority is imposible. There
is r>o escape from the existine situation except through dissolution,
What a general election will result in
producing we shall be safer in prophesying after the event than before. A
year ago and more the Liberals as a
party declared for partv lines. The
challenge has oeen taken up hy the
Conservatives, who in two conventions
have expressed themselves as favorable
to party government. These declarations can only mean that in many of
the constituencies, if not in all of
them, the parties will be represented
by candidates of the regulation stripe.
The chief organ of the Couservatives
is not pleased with this arrangement,
and its opposition may have the effect
of introducing soino confusion, perhaps
even of causing some embarrassment.
The situation may be further complicated by the necessity of considering
other interests. But as to the main

GENERAL ELECTIONS.
"It is a moral certainty that we
will have both Federal and Provincial
elections within six months," observes
an exchange. In Eastern Canada tho
conviction la becoming more general
and growing stronger that the present
Pailiament of the Dominion has had
its last session. Whether the politicians ate deceived in their reading of
the signs only the event itself can conclusively prove. Bnt no doubt tho reasons ore strong for supposing that an
early dissolution is contemplated. The
Government lost rather than gained
during last session, aud they stand to
lose still more in popularity shonld
thoy decide to meet the Hnnse again,
Then, as we have already remarked,
there must he elections soon in Manitoba and Ontario, and the chances
seem largely tn favor the prediction
that both thoNe Provinres will lie lost
to the LibetnlB. To go to tho country
with the record of theso defeats would
be a bad thing for the Liberal party of
the Dominion.
Whatever doubt there may be, how-
ovor, us to  au early Federal  eloction,
tho Premier's interview disoouraging
it. Then the angry rear of the country frightened Ministers, and Mr.
Tarts, our French ruler, was induced
to consent, hence (lie claim now that
there was never any doubt about it.
The paths of the politicians and their
organs arc not always of the
strain lit est
The Columbia won tbe first bent.

Gaptaiu A. E. Hoilgins' call for vol-
untrurs to servo iu the Transvaal has
been well respjnded to, unless then
thirty-five volunteers having sent in
their names, of whom 1(1 belong to the
Nelson Kirl'1 Company, The physical
standard is a comparatively biph one,
as apart from possessing a good constitution, volunteers must be five feci
six indies high, H4 inches round tho
chest and between tho lines of 22 ami
40. Dr. Symonda was busied all day
yesterday in examining the would be
recuits, and several of them failed to
come up to tho ntandard. It is not
known yet, how many men will be accepted from Nelson, but it is not
thought that more than ten or a dozen
will be iible to find place*. Oaptain
Hodgins telegraphed (jolonol Peters
aeveoal times Sunday and yesterday,
but yesterday evening had received no
reply. Ho expects a telegram toilay
from Colonel Peters with full instructions as to when and where thn volunteers nre to be se it. As will be seen
from a copy of a cablegram from Mr.
Chamberlain to Lord Soymonr, published below, thero is not much time
left, as tlio troops must leave Canada
by the Hist instant. It is understood
that the drafts from vaiioiisf parts of
Canada will assemble at (Quebec, nnd
there mobilize. They will piobably
sail from Halifax on the steamer Sardinia, which has been chartered by
tbe Dominion Government for that
purpose. It seems that the Canadian
contingent will Bail direct to the Cape
from Canada, and will not go via
London, England. The Nelson volunteers are not all raw recruits. Tbe
members of the Kitie Company have
been regularly drilled for a good many
mouths past, nnil one of them, Mr. Orr
Pateison, has seen active service in
South Africa. He was through one of
the Matabele campaigns as a member
of Giflord's Horse. In tact he was
tho youngest sergeant-major in the
Kbodesian Horse, of wliich Giflord's
Horse formed a part.
The cablegram sent by the Hun. Joseph Chamberlain to Lord Seymour,
who was uilminiHtrator iu regard to
the seuding of a Canadian contingent
to the Transvaal, renos   us follows:

I     MINING NEWS.     I
�������������������-�������������������������������������������������������
Ihe Boruite Bank Hold Mining Oo,
mi Morning Mountain, four miles
siiutli of this place is another mine of
Hieat promise, about to lie added to
the Nelson camp. Active work has
been going on on this property for the
past 2>fj months, by the syndicate owning the sniiio under the management
of J. H. Cranston with the most pleasing results. Now that the owners
me satisfied of its bein�� a mine they
have coucluded to stock it under the
above iiuiue. About u week ago there
was offered for isnbsrriptions, 900,000
slinres oi this stuck. Though Mr.Cranston hns had wonderful success among
the Nelson and Rossland people in the
way of getting subscriptions, there
are yet a small lot left which it is
hoped will be taken up within the
next two or three days. The company
is now in course of organization,
Meantime the syndicate are going
ahead with development. So as to get
the shaft down as soou ns posible as
the company is desirous of shipping
ore this winter. Mr. J. h. Vanstone
is the company's official broker here,
who will be pleased to give full infor-
raation, show samples und take subscriptions.
From the Sandon Paj streak The
Miner clips the following statement ot
shipments:

The above showing shows readily
thnt The Tribune's numerous statements that all of the Slocan -mini's
will be running full force on Oct. 1,
is undoubtedly corre.it (?). The mines
of the Slocan turned as much ore in six
months in '98 than as iu nine months
in '99. The shipments in October
with everything booming (?) is particularly noticeable.

The Miner learns from a reliable
source that the Canadian Gold Fields
Comp uy luiB, through Mr, J. C.
Dreweiy, acquired the Queen of the
HiiN and the Moyie propenirs. which
are extensions if the Lake Shore mine.
The price is said to be 1826,000, and
