KELSON'S GILA DAI
First Day of Celebration a
Grand Success.
RESULTS  OF CONTESTS
Nelsou Puts on Her Brightest Appearance
to Wuloome tbe Mauy Visitors-
Celebration Notes,
Nelson wns fortunate in seonring
Queen's weather for the first day ot
the sports. In faot it was almost too
hot for some of tbo spectators iu tbo
afternoon. Baker streot presented a
very pay scene, tho decorations being
entirely successful. Looking up the
street from tbo Tremout hotel baloony.
the pay drossos of tbo ladies, tbe many
oolored Hums and bunting tho dense
crowds thronging tho sidewalks, the
windows filled witb smartly appureled
spectators, together formed a unique
spectacle, giviug the stranger tbe Impression that Nelson was a much lnr
ger aud moro important town than it
really is. All in good time, however,
and Nelson will souk, day bead the
list of Canada's leading cities.
The arrangements for tho comfort of
spectators wero excellently carried oat
nud were only equalled by tbe masterly manner iu whioh tbe various
sporting event were put, through. Tbe
manager excelled one of Roosevelt's
rough riders in tbo way in which h"
galloped fearlessly np mid down the
streets packed wiih human beings.
It is difticnlt to estimate the uumber of guests, though it is safe to say
that there were more thau 00 any previous similar occasion. Mayor Pitts
ami Alderman Crawford, of Sandon,
and Alderman Kane, of Kaslo, were
amongst the City's Quests, 'l'he civio
honors were well sustained by Mayor
Neelands and the Aldermon ; nn excellent lunch being provided for visiters
as well ns fcr a number of tbe lending "citizens. Tbe Dunoan Miues
management also entertained a large
party to lunch in their hrick block,
Mrs. Stocks nnd Mrs Peters reeoiviac
the guests. The police arrangement
were excellent, the Nelson l^iHeB
lending vnlnuble assistance to the
force. A uumber of special constables
were nlso qn duty. It is very seldom
that so grent a crowd of people oan be
gathered together wilbout one or two
disorderly spirits being among tlnni.
Vesterdny wnsjta fitting example ut'
that inspect for law and order und
teieral good behaviour for which the
mining cities of British Columbia
are justly famous. It was meet and
tight that the first event ou tbe pi-o-
erainmo should*" be oue typical of tbe
oaminerce which is Nelson's glory.'
i.-'or the iirst tiuie a Trades Procession formed an item in tbe Dominion
Day programme and it proved to le
perhaps tbo most successful oveut of
all. * -    ���
Thn elaborate way in which the
floats were got, up came as -a surprise
to everyone. Apart from their highly,
artistic merit there wns" a strong practical element iu them so that while the
eye was charmed tho mind wus mnde
to tenllze the importance an* extent of
trade n, Nelson.
Too much praise cannot be givou those
who contributed to tbe success ofcthc
precession for it meant tbe expenditure
of a considerable amount of time and
morey. The smelter baud, tlie Nel
son rifles and the Knights of Pythias
under tho generalship  of  Mr.   A.   J
oped greatly during tho last two
months, the Royal Seal Cigars having
now become a regular stock iu trade
of nil purveyors of the weed in Kootenay. Cigars wero deftly manufactured ou tlio float, and freely distributed among tlio bystanders. A hwia-
tbiini cigar shaded the employees from
the sun, The company received
honorable mention for their contribution fo tho procession.
M. Des lirisny presented a pyramid
of choice groceries. Samples "of tea
and oandy were thrown from tbo car.
Sayward's Lumber null bad a float,
which though simple, gave a practioal
proof of tho good material this firm
cau supply.
Mr. I<rod Irvine in faultless silk hat
directed the movements of bis float.
Some pretty children helped to show
Off tbo graceful drapmgs of the car.
He received the second prize, a result
which gave universal  satisfaction.
Mr. Noolaud's idea was distinctly
original. Au enormous white slipper
tenanted by "the old woman that
lived in a shoo" was the principal
adornment of his float, which was a
very effective one.
Tbe Planing aurl Saw Mill gave
a good showing of dressed lumber.
A novel idea was tbe assembly of
"old timers" in the next car. There
wero oue or two notable absentees
however, Dr. Dalian not being visible
though possibly he may havo escaped
notice iu the throng.
The adjective "old" soomed some
what suporfluos as the occupants of
tbo car appeared to be in the prime ot
life with tho "divil" (a very red one
too) iu them.
Mr. Chase's candy exhibit was the
lust float, the rear guard consisting of
two colored eqnipagos. Tho last of
these was, it is understood, an advertisement for a well known firm of real
estate and insurance agents, tlio steed
that drew it being intended to represent an English capitalist aud Ihe
bunch of persuasive straw a snap iu
Nelson real estate. Tlie driver was a
warded the prize for best "Calitbunip
iu Costume."
Kiesterer's brewery made a bruve
show with three cars, only, owing to
an accideut thev arrived a little late.
An enormous float, beautifully hung
with green boughs, and got up like a
German "Bier hallo" came Urst. A
nnmber of the employees were on it,
and some of them dispensed free drinks
to the thirsty bystanders. A wagon
representing the brewery iu its infancy in 18114 formed a striking contrast to the first, one. Mr. Keisterer
was bouorablv mentioned hy the
judges.
Tbe Hudson Bay Co., bad a magnificent float only they too, unfortunately,
met with an accident and were unable
to join tbe procession whioh wns a pity
as their exhibit would have formed one
of the most interesting In tbe group.
The hose cart races were tho next
events aud these excised a considerable
amount of interest. Tbe JRossland
roam's supporters had evideutly come
armed wMth a plentiful supply of the
nerfflful which tbey wero prepared to
wager on their men in tho proportiou
nf 100 to , 80 ��� A regular betting ring
was foiined in the street, but as far as
could bo seen no considerable sums
woro risked.   ��
The hub and hub race was a capital
one, the Rossland team winning by
four foet amid great, excifumeut. The
Rossland team ouly contained two of
the regnlar firemen the others not boing able to leave their post. Amongst
tiie remainder were several recent im-
por atious wflo had acquired fame as
sprinters. Tbo Nelson boys, beiug nil
residents and regular members of tbo
brigade are therefore deserving of groat
credit for the plucky race they ran.
Wr-sibly a little more practice together
and training might have given them
the victofy.. However, in tbe more
practical wet test, Nelson wns an easy
winner Rowland team not being able to
break tho coupling and get tfie nozzle
on? Nelson sifoceeded in fixing the
nozzle en the hose witihn 83 3-5 seconds from the start, an excellent performance,      ji
Tbe luncheon hour having ended
the horse races commenced. Tbe first
oventi-tbo open quarter mile���only
nltiili-rotl two entries. In the first heat
Mr, Hartline's (of Rossland) Jennv B,
beat Mr. Wilson's (of N orthpoit) Jack
Marks, who   was  mounted on u blaok a'V % lengths   and in tbo second heat
charger, lead the pifioessioii closely fill
lowed by tbo book and ladder cart on
winch were seated the Nelsou fire
men. ,        -4} ���
The first float was a prettily decorated car on which wero soatod a number
of littlo maidens dressed in whito. On
a raised dais reclined proudly their
Queen (Miss Poppy MacthMiald). The
Ojuceu's throne appearod to he, like
thnt of many modem mouarebs, somewhat unstable, but her majesty was
supremely indifferent to any dan
ger. Tbe dearftttlo mites began to
sing and wAve their flags os soon ns
tbe procession started and some of the
spectators found it hard to look��un;
moved at those whom to nee is as a vision of the citizens ot heaven. A more
refiued or elevating emblem of the Dominion could pot have  been   devised.
P. Burns and Co., the well known
meat salesmen of Kootenay flame first
and they deservedly won the first
prize. The float was in faot a'moving
butchers' shop. Much amnsemeiit^was
caused by the way io which choice
joints were diseuted and scattered
abroad among tho crowd. The float
was arranged under the superintendence of Mr. Fred Bosquet .of the Nelson branch of the^firm, a gentleman
whose courtesy iB well known by Mr.
Burns' Nelson customers.
D. MoArthur & Co., made a good
show. Their float was arranged in
two compartments, a bedroom and a
Bitting room, furnished with articles
from their well Ttrtfcwiv store. The
bagpipes heralded the npproacb of Ihe
furniture float much io the delight of
Scotch visitors. .m
Tbe Kootenay Cigar. Co's., float
came next.   This business has  devel-
bv three   lengths,   thus   winning   the
!$lf-0 prize.
The second race was for borne horses
only. There were five entries, Messrs.
Marks, Blake Wilson, Hfcrsch, Kelly
ajid Russell being the respective owners of tho horses. The first heat was
won by Mr. Hirscli's Molly, Mr.
Mark's Fly-tym being second. Iu the
second heat Molly-snatched a bare victory by a nock, an exciting finish.
The rider*nf tbe winning horse rode
in admirable style. Mr. Hirsch followed up tbe traditions of tbo "Derby" and   lead back  bis wiuuing horse
trom tbe post. 4
The-Blair Business Collflge team of
Spokane, was fltoated this afternoon
on the Nelson grounds by a score of Id
Tlie Blair bovfl shut tbo home team
out for tbe first four innings and
bad tallied two in tho first aud two in

Apia, Samoa, June 16, via San Francisco, June 30. ���Peace and quiet now
reigus in Samoa, in marked contrast
to too warlike scenes of two months
ago. Tbe arrival of the auxilliary cruiser Badger ou May 18 with the international commission ou board oaused
a distinct change iu affairs here. The
commission lost no time but went to
work immediately, electing Mr.
Tripp chairman and Mr. Morgan, secretary. Tbo commissioners held interviews with King Tunu, then with
Mataafa. Tunu was not at first recognized as king by tbe commissioners.
Tunu and his chiefs readily agreed to
give up ther arms and stated that they
wore prepared to acoept any form of
government the commission might
recommend, even if the kiugsbip was
abolished. He readily agreed to give
up the guns held by bis party but insisted as the weapons were the private
property of natives they should receive
compensation for them.
The commission issued a proclamation stating that tbe guns would
either be returned or proper payment
made for them after all tbe troubles
bad been settled. This, of oourse,
means that payment will be made as
it would be folly to return the weapons. Matanfas party also asked to be
represented by Attorneys before the
commission, but the request waa declined. After Mataafa's men had turned in ItiOO rifles and Tanu's supporters a thousand more, T'auu was
informed tbat tbe commissioners supported the decision by Chief Chambers
aud tbat Tanu bad been King of Samoa ever since tbe decision bad beeu
rendered. Tanu said that be was
willing to do anything for tbe good of
Samoa and at the request of tba commissioners he resigned the* kingship.
Tbe commission is now engaged in
formulating its report.
The abolition of kingship will be a
fin.'1 ure of the report, also the abolition
of the office of president of Apia.
This mahioipality is to be governed
by'a council and mayor, and will do
away with this ollicial drawing $5,000

B��eu a source of much frioMon here.
Tbo judicial aud diplomatic functions
of tbe consuls will be greatly restrfbted
and tbe commission recognizes that
tbe lower nud supreme court are sufficient for. tbe needs of*- Samoa. Rev-
ouue will be raised by indireot taxation aud by meaus of increased ous-
toms duties. The ppU tax-will be
abolished, tbe license's���(! tax rates
of Apia will remain as formerly under
the treaty.. The supreme oourt will
leinain ,-s under thb treaty, an administrator ��r governor will be appointed, who will not be a subject of
the treaty powers. He is to be assisted
,by a legislative oounoil of three, one
appointed by the three treaty powers.
Tbe council will legislate for Samoa,
and be assisted by a Bmall body of representative Samoans The government will bave the power of veto over
all proposed laws. Chiet Justice Chambers wishes to resign his position,
and return, to tbo United States, but
on request of the commissioners he
decided to remain. Many complaints
have beeh lodged at tbe different coj��
(filiates for damages to property dur��
ing the past few months. While ntt
empowered to take any action o�� these
.������la'inis the commissioners agreed that
hardships bad been suffered and it is
understood the commission %U) recommend that each of the three powers
pay the losses oaused -by its own sub��
je.-iH. Some of the rebels, dissatisfied
with the proclamation providing for 1,
provisional government have declin*
ed to givo up their rifles. Mataafa disclaims a��y jij'spiiusibility for their
actions. .

O Lord, and

Stretob forth Tbine arm
bind tbe earth
Witb   golden   chains  of peace,
will, and love;
Still Thou the clarion of  war, the din
of strife
That envious greed of empire seeks to
sound:
Quell the   unreBt, the cane'rous  sores
ot bate
That, fed by   heedless tongue   and ignorant
Of demagogue and   hireling, tends   to
hurl
The  nations into hideous anarchy.
Send we this message  from our Western land���
The land of pine decked hills, of azure
lakes,
Of snow wreathed  mountains, where,
entombed within
The adamantine rock,   a golden board
Awaits the hungry grasp   of   conquering man;
The land that, maiden-like, doth celebrate
This day,   in   festal   garb,   her happy
birth-
Send we   this  message   to   those  old
world realms
f Where the leaBhed  dogs of war, with
bated breath,
Wait but tbe   impulse   of   tbe   ruling
hands
To loose tbeir slips aud foul their fangs
with gore)
That maple-crowned Oanada doth greet
Her mother land, aud the great armed
Powers
Of Europe, and   that   mighty   nation,
bound
To her by bonds of blood,   aud  would
entreat
That   they   do   now   disarm, and "all
unite *       .-' %
In one vast  prayer, that  Thou,   great
Lord Divine,
Would'st make the smouldering fires of
warfare cease
And   herald forth Tby thousand years

the Customs, the Inland Revenue and
the Post-Offlee.as well as any other the
Federal Government might have occasion to establish here. It would be
good business to supply this. The Government can borrow money at two and
three-quarters per cent. ; in Nelson
they are paying tents based on an interest return of anything from twelve
to twenty per cent. Tbat is poor economy. No individual who can provide
for himself would think of paying the
high rents prevailing here. The Departments concerned would save money
by becoming their own landlords in

POOR ECONOMY.
Tbe Toronto Globe says Mr. Hugh J.
Macdonald contends tbat tbo Doukho-
bors ought not to be allowed to vote
because tbeir principles will not permit them to bear arms, a position from
which it dissents, as to disfranchise
them for tbat reason would be to apply
to them a rule which we apply to no
other part of the community. That
may be, but it is not a sufficient answer to Mr. Majdonald's contention
nevertheless. If we do not apply the
rule to others it is because those others
are content to become full citizens.
If a man is not content to perform the
full duty of citizenship, he cannot
expect to enjoy the full privileges of
it. We do not say tbat a Doukhobor
ought to be refused the franchise beoause of his scruple against bearing
arms. Perhaps tbat would be too great
a punishment, but should it be refused
him for that reason we do not know
that he would have good ground to consider himself badly treated. Tbe man
who will refuse to defend his country
is not a citizen in the full sense of
the word, and only citizens can demand the right to vote.

THIS  "WEEK:.
Note of a danger that is always with
us is thus sounded by The New Denver Ledge: "The forest fire season is
about due and the tool who Btarts them
is still alive. The law against it is
still in force, but like some other laws
in the Slocan it is almost dead."
A MINER'S VIEW   OF THE CASE
Eight Hour Law   as   Viewed   By   the
Miners' Union.
To the Editor Nelson Miner:
Dear Sir:���It you will kindly allow
me space in your valuable paper I will
endeavor to give you a statement of
affairs as they exist in the mining distriot of the Slocan today.
Iu your weekly issue of June 23 yon
published in interview with one of
the mine owneis of this district in
which he Buys the miners here are dissatisfied with tbe eight hour law.
Such, however, is not the qgse. There
ia no miner in this district but what
thinks that eight hours shonld constitute a days' work, and as for wages
the miiier-only asks what is fair and
just whon he asks lor $3.00 per day of
eight hours. He also further states
that the miner objects to tbe eight
hour law on account of a reduction in
wages or being thrown out of employment. IU is a fact the miners object
to both, buf they would rather^remain
idle than work for wages that will not
Bprchase   the ordinary  necessaries
of
When in Committee of Supply a few
days ago tb%,qnestipn of public buiffl-
ings for public haiiness came up, on a
request made by a Toronto member
that the Government should Consider
the necessity for increased accommodation for the Post-Office service in tbat
city. During the disoussion which-followed Mr. Fraser, member for Guys-
boro, took tbe ground that the Government should provide Post-Office buildings, one at, least in each county in
places yeilriing $4,000 annual revenue.
Nelson will cheerfully submit to that
condition. Last year the sale of stamps
alone amounted to $14.458.94. Tbe
Saying Banks deposits were $2��, 170;
money orders were issued to tbe
amount of (80,906, and tho money' orders paid Aggregated $29,242. The tc<; ,
tal postal revenue, in Nelson is several
times greate�� than the amount which
Mr. Fraser thinks shonld entitle a
place to a building 'of it* own.
Nelson is asking the   Government to
provide a building tbat will afford decent accommodation   for   the requirements of  the   postal   servi^f in  this
City.    It    is    urgently   needed,   and
Ministers have professed   to  recognise
the necessity for it.-'^Jit nolpnropria-
\ion   has    yet   bean   madiv   We   are
waiting anxiously   until   the supplementary  esitmates are brought down,'
to see il our wants are to be   supplied.
Our case   is made all   the stronger  by
reason of tbe fact that tne Customs and
Iuland   Revenue servioes are as -badly
housed as the Post-OIHce. and they are
, both large  producers flf revenue. The
Customs collections   last year  reached
the very considerable totaPof $160,772^
and for   the nine months from   June,
1898,  to February,   1899,   both   inclusive, tbe Inland Revenue at this place
Was   $40,094.    Theso   8Te    respectable
flgnr��. demonstrating   in a word  the
fact that JTelson is an important place,
fully   desorviug   the  consideration   of
the Government     Ml these public services are abort as Badly accommodated
as they can be.   A few thousand dollaiB
would provide  a  building that would
afford   accommodation   for   the three,
life,
Now as to the miner obeying the
Union "bosses' (so-caHeM) I will say
tbat he is not posted on Unionism.
The miner here acts as he sees fit and
is not coerced by any boss, the officers
of the Union. Biniply carry out tbe
wishes of the minors.
Things are moving along smoothly
in the Slocan, the mines that are
working are complying with the Jaw,
and they are also paving the oW rate
of wages of $8.50 per day. Yours re*-

Yesterday what looked for a fow
moments liko the beginning of a serious aecidont happened. During the
horse races a horso got beyond the control of his ridor. Ho plunged once or
twice, and then, noariug Ward streot,
ovidoutly made up his mind to bolt,
and attempted to dash off down Ward
street, This, however, his rider prevented aud tried to turn him back on
to linker streot but all the horse would
con promise on was tho sidewalk. It
made straight for the crowd iu front
of the Nelson & Port Sheppard Kail-
way oflioe.who scattered with alacrity.
The horse then continued along the
sidewalk,his rider finally succeeding in
mastering it. and getting out into the

several were pietty badly scared.

FROM   TROUT   LAKE   DISTRIOT,
Gold Commissioner Conrsier Describes
the Country.
Rossland, June 30.���Mr. H. N.
Conrsier, gold commissioner, has re
turned to Revelstoke from a visit to
the southern portion of this district.
Interviewed by the Mail he said he
had visilod Comaplix aud Fish Creek,
Thomsons Landing, Trout Lake City.
Ferguson and 10 Milo; Nakusp and
Fire Valley, Mineral and Burton City
and had been ali over most of the road
and trails. The governments policy
was principally to open up, improve
and extend main trails and it was a
wiso policy. The work for tho season
was mostly located now and put, he
<bought, in capable hands. Iu Trout
Lnko tho north fork trail would be extensively repaired. Thero were several
other trail appropriations. In Lardean
tho wagon mad was the principal
item and the putting in of several
bridges. At Nakusp the ohlof item
was in a hail to the springs and on
up McDonald creek ; nt Burton from the
Millie Mack switch up the Cariboo
river. Repairs to tho wagou road at
Burton was au intended item of expenditure, but unfortunately the
groator portion tho money had already
been spent in removing a slido.
Everywhere ho fouud general notivity
and hopefulness, particularly in the
Lar.leau, whoro railways stakes are
found everywhere. The gsueral expectation is that rails will be built
ronnd Trout Lake and a spur to 10-
Milo this year. Fish creek has boon
surveyed, too, and tho North Fork.
From the enemy dssplayed by the two
railway companies any thing might
happen. C.nnuplix and Thomson's
are looking confidently to an output
from Pool creek, Trout Lake City is
improving rapidly, and Ferguson is
i>ning forward again. There is a geueral hopefulness all over that country
that is most en oo waging,

The premier replied ; "It is I who
oaused the strength of the government
to be increased on legal requisitions
mado before the repression commenced.
This statement drew forth a storm
of invectives nud Socialists cried,

The   Evening Star   property   which
is   owned   by   the   Fainnount    Gold
Mining Company has been Hhut down,
owing to the   water   coming in   faster

further development on   a large   scale,
one of the largest holders of this stock
was very recently   here  from England
to report on the property   for the benefit of some of   his   friends in the   old

Washington, June 30.���The United
States Cruiser Chicago arrived at Del-
goa yesterday, and rear Admiral How-
ison notiifles the Navy Department
tbat he will proceed by rail to Pretoria. The visit of Admiral Howison
to Pretoria is said to have no political
significance although it is not usual
for an admiral to leave his ship to
procend overland into another country.
Undoubtedly tho admiral will consult the American consul-general at
Pretoria respecting the outlook in the
Transvaal and will be guided
largely by his advice ns to how long
the Chicago will be detained at Delgoa
Bay which is the nearest port to the
Transvaal.

ANOTHER ROW  IN ROME.
Rome, June !I0. ��� In the chamber of
deputies tjcight the Socialists, and
extreme Leftists commenced their ob-
tructive tactics, and created an immense uproar. The president of the
house combatted the efforts of obstructionists and finally the deputies left
their seats and crowded on the floor,
aud there was such an uproar that the
sitting was suspended. When it wafl
resumed similar tactics were carried
on by extreme leftists, who crowded
the floor. The tumult was deafening
and eventually a free fight ensued,
and thu sitting was  again   suspended.

Is the cause of many a Batch of Bread having to be thrown

We advise : Throw prejudice aside, and tor your next
