MARTIN'S    DOWNFALL
The Attorney-Gene al's Miserable Mistake
Criticised -Etricturea   on   Eight-
Hour ami Alien Bill-
The Bushland banquet hns boconie
one of Un' lending subjects discussed in
co mention with the present politioal
crisiH Mr. P. A O'Farrel deals with
it exhaustively in the Kosslaud Miner
as fnllows:
For ninny reason!) I have been  loath
to tench on the Martin incident at tlie
Mackintosh banquet.   It   *as painful
aud nuseendy,   and   it  seemed  to nie
tbat as tbo banquet  was   nn   international one, it   would   be beBt to  cast
the shadow of silenoe and   of   charity
oyer Mr. Martin's performance.     But
like Bnii<|iio's   ghost,   that   inoident
will not  down,   and it   ban assumed
scions proportions  on nocount of  Mr.
Senilin's request for Mr.   Martin's res-
lguntion.   It  has, therefore, bocome a
matter of wide extended interest. I am
sorry tbat it snoold  be  so,   but   that
Mill not niter tlie enso.    No more brll-
liaut or dintingnished   Slithering  ever
nssetnbled in  British  Colombia,   than
that present  at   the Mackintosh bau-
quet.   England, Scotland, Ireland, and
every Province in the Dominion   was
represented    there,   ns    well   as   the
United Slates   ol    America,   There
were men who hart uchoived honor nnd
renown   in   fV3ry walk of life  and in
evuy hind, nnd these men   were tbere
prmid anil happy to do honor to a Oun-
iidiiui who bad   done some porvioe   to
his country,nn:l who hail conferred im-
niHiiso benefits on   British   Columbia
All went merry us a   marriage bell till
tho Hon,   Joseph   Martin   rose to   re-
niionrl to the   tonst of  tho   Provincial
Pnrlinnieiit.    From    tha    banqueters
lie had a most   cordial   reception.    He
was received exactly   ns   a representative of the Provincial   Government
should  hnve   been   received;   that   is
with honor nnd respeot.   And bis very
kindly allusions to Governor   Mackintosh were warmly applauded. But Mr.
Martin's speech,    the  longer  it was
continued, seemed to become the more
fiat,  tlio  more  stnlo  and   the    more
nn profitable,   It   grew   into   u  "talo
told bj nn idiot,full of sound and fnry,
BinnifyinR     nothing."    There   wore
Americans and  Europeans  there  who
knew nothing   of 'Joe"   Martin,    but
who were  anxious   to hear the Attor-
ney-General   of   the great Province of
British Columbia.    He   had  a fine opportunity to talk to these   men, and to
outline  to  them and ro  the   country
the policy of his Government  toward
the nulling   industry.    Another would
have seized the opportunity nnd   reaped therefrom a golden harvest for himself and for his Government; bnt  Mr.
Martin turned an  opportunity  for  a
triumph Into ouo of  woeful   disaster.
With a wild eye nnd  a rasping  voice
lie mixed up idle platitudes "and   inane
sentiment till  his friends and   admirers began to pity him and the rest.    A
majority of the banqueters   grew tired
mill weary,    The  buzz of conversation
and tlie clink of glasses und the  humorous Inngh.   were heard on every side,
antl Mr, Martin's talk  was no longer
heeded,    Hut ho   still went on for   ull
the world   liko nn  unappreciated   end
]"nn on a variety stage, uttering seuse-
W8S things.    Suddenly   he   seemed   to
""'oiiinzo   that all interest in him nnd
111 Ins  speech   wns    gone,   and   with
equal Buddenness he   leaped from dullness and inanity to fury and madness.
He roared mlt ���t the   top of  his voice :
1 will not  bo  silenced by hobos in
evening  dress."    This    immediately
ni'iiused the attention   of  everv   guest
���n the banquet hall, and the wild sally
was received with a shout of laughter.
.01110  of  tho    young.ir   men   shouted
����o��:     Sou are tho hobo."
And at tins, Mr. Martin, in loud,
fesonaut tones, shouted: "Thirty-five
thousand dollars have  been approprl-
���. , , ���"��"' iinve   oeen approprl-
a en by Diy Government for a court

��om physioal violence.    Miauwhile
Mr. Eberts was arousing ringing cheers
lroni the guests by a peculiarly happy
speech. Those reached Mr. Martin,
and tbey seemed to have aroused again
all his worst passions, and ho rushed
to the door of the banquet ball and
made most uuseco.lv interruptions
whiio Mr. Eberts v s speaking. By
this time the scene h id really become
comical and the banqueters determined
to treat tho whole nlfair as a species
of light comedy. Mr. Edwin Durniit
took tho floor nnd delivered n brilliant speech, which made people forgot
Mr. Martin nnd hut performances.
Later ou it was noticed that the Attorney-General had returned to his
seat, aud Mayor Goodevo asked that
be be permitted to mako a personal explanation. A respectful silence immediately ensued, and Mr Martin
said: "I wish tn stale that Kosslaud
will got its 140,000 for a court house,
hut yon hobos in evening dress can go
to the devil. " After tins outburst ho
left the banquet hall, and there was
heard no more.
No sano or sober mini would havo
played tbo part noted by Mr. Martin
that night. I have soon no publio
man before mako such a woeful exhibition ou a festive occasion, and every
ninn of senso and generous feeling lo
whom I spoke expressed tbo sinoerest
pity that a man of Mr. Martin's position nud standing in the Dominion
should have been guilty, of couduot, nt
that bauqnot uubeoomiug the most un-
tutored rustic or nny man with tho
slightest claim to be classed as a gen-
tlemau. I must positively affirm
tbat nothing had occurred in any way
to justify Mr. Mnrtiu's conduct. An
allusion had been made to tbo alien
law in a very diplomatic manner by
Mr. Mackintosh. Ho told how the
London Finnnieal World regarded the
enactment and feared the operations of
the alien law. But this was doue In
elegant form, nud nobody snspeoted
that it could posssibly arouso the ire
of Mr. Martin. It is true that the vast
majority of tbe men soated at the festive hoard felt keenly the injustice
dono to tho Kootenays by the eight-
h.mr law passed last session by Mr.
Semlin's Govern men I but tbere was no
exhibition of feeling against Mr. Mar
tin on the account. Had Mr. Martin
been wise and prudent ho could hnvo
played on tho feelings of that audience
and won tbeir plaudits, ns Mr. Eberts
subsequently did; but he played tb^
fool's part, nud must suffer tbe consequences.
And now thnt Mr. Martin and his
conduct as Attorney-General are before the Provinoe, it is well ouce for
all that the people of the Province
should know thnt the oiglit-honr law
is received in tbe Kootenays with tini-
ve'.snl disapprobation. The silver-load
mines of the Kootenays are no lougor
hives of industry, affording good
wages to the toiler, good dividends to
the capitalists nnd freicht and revenue
to the railroads. There is gloom and
poverty in a thousand homes where a
year ago wns comfort, happiness and
money. Millions have been spent
building railroads to the silver-load
districts. Millions have been spent
opening up nnd developing these
mines, and the eight-hour law hns
locked up in the mountains of tho
Kootenay nil the treasure wbich those
millions were spent to exploit and
recover. All tho enterprise and opportunity nud business and trade which
has been built up in that country by
ten years of unremitting toil and labor
is suddenly paralysed by a law fathered by the preseut Government. Nobody in tbe Kootenays demnuded nn
eight-hour law except, perhaps the
gambler or the buuco man, who hau-
kerctl for greater opportunity to fleece
tbe working miner. In Rossland,
where there are great machinery plnnts
nud shaft mines, an .sight hour shift
has becomo n necessity. In the Slocan
such a law was undesirable, unnecessary and vicious. Tbe passage of such
an act stnmps those responsible for it
ns uttorly unfit to shape tho destiny of
the Provinoe. It hns paralyzed industry aud brought grief nnd su4*'ering
and disappointment into thousands of
happy homes. It is incomprehensible
to the people of Kootenay that Mr.
Semlin or Mr, Cotton should havo
ever permittod the enactment of such a
law ; and the only way that they can
redeem themselves beforo the oountry
is to proceed immediately to its repeal.
The alien law is a lesser ovil. It
was conceived in ignorance, enacted in
tolly nud is n disgrace to British Co-
lurnbia as well as to the ago wo live
in. Over in Kast Kootenay. in a lovely
country, is n beautiful youug city
growiug up by the shores of Moyie
Lako. Six years ago Moyio was as
lonelv as an Indiau jungle. Today
tbat whole district is out up by good
wagon roads and good trails, and the
woodman, tho minor and the capitalist
are prospecting thero. In those five
years James Cronin nun John Finch,
two aliens, bave spent $70,000 building
wagon roads nnd trails nud cabins and
houses, and developing mines, piying
the way for a grent and prosperous
mining iudustry. The Government of
the Province gave (800 toward building the roads of the district. John
Pinch nnd Jnmes Cronin have spent
$10,000 builidng roads over the same
district. Is there a sano man in too
Province who does not believe that it
is more men liko Finch and Cronin
that British Columbia needs? The
psondo statesman who would exclude
men of tbo typo of James Cronin from
Oanada are blundereis of the worst
kind. Today British Columbia is attracting tho attention of the world,nud
has become the brightest jewel in the
diadem of the mighty British Empire.
But lot it not bo forgotten tbat it
wns aliens like Dan Oorbin and V.
Aug. Hoinze and Jim Oronan and Oliver Durnnt and Bill Henusessey that
broke the almost infinite silence of the
Kootenavs, and waked into life aud
industry and labor an ompireof bound-

TONS OF DYNAMITE
The Hamilton Powder Company Prosecuted.
$200 FINE IS IMPOSED
The First Step in the Richt Direotion Is
Taken   by   the   Oity  to Abate
the Great Danger.
Tin hearing of the charge against
the Hamilton Powder Oompany for
storiug powder and explosives within
two miles of the City limits oume on
yesterday before Magistrate Crease.
Mr. S. S. Taylor, Q. 0., who appeared for the Oompany, began by objecting to the information on the
ground that the same did not set out in
which court his client waB to appear. The information had been laid
before Mr. Crease as Police Magistrate
whereas it should hnve been before
him as stipendiary magistrate for the
County of Kootonay. This objection
was got over by Mr. Crease amending
the information.
A seooud objection was that there
was more than one offenoe oharged in
the same information.
This objection was noted.
Mr. Wilson, who appeared for the
City, began by calling Mr. Newiln
Hoover. Mr. Hoover said that he lived
uaross tho lake opposite thi C. P. R.
wharf. He did not know how tar
from tho City.
Mr. Wilsou tried to elicit, from the
witness, who owned the building in
wbich he lived, but Mt. Taylor objected
to the question on the ground tbat
ownership of the property must be
pro-od hy the owner.
Mr. Hoover went ou to say that he
took charge of a briok building witb
a white roof which was used for storing powder but Mr. Taylor objected to
him saying who owned the powder.
Mr. Hoover, continuing, said he was
iu the employ of the Hamilton Powd��r
Company and that he was paid by
their agent Mr. G. Tunstall. Several
objections were raised by Mr. Taylor
ns to the irrelevancy of the witness's
answers but the magistrate disallowed
them. However he pointed out to Mr.
Wilson that he was hardly putting
the questions in proper form and he
must avoid leading his witness. Mr
Taylor urged that as this was a techi
nical case every technical rule must
be strictly observed.
The witness continuing that upon
the 8fh July, tbe day on wbich the
offeuce is named in the information as
having been committed, he waB in the
building which contained a number
of boxes which he presumed were full
of dynamite or giant powder. Mr.
Taylor strongly objected to this portion of the evidence as being merely
an expression of opinion.
The witness said thnt the cases were
full and were marked as containing
each 50 pounds of dynamite. One box
had been opened that date and contained theu about 25 pounds of dynamite. He had also opened a box that
was in th.i building on the 8th July
and it contained 50 pounds of dynamite. There were also six kegs in the
building each containing 25 pounds of
black powder. The dynamite boxes
were marked with tbe name of tbe
Hamilton Powder Company and also
with the size nnd weight of the dynamite therein contained.
His duties were to deliver the powder
at the C. P. R. aud Government
wharfs aud to fetch the powder from
the cars us it, arrives.
Cross examined by Mr. Taylor, the
witness said that be saw the broken
box referred to on the 8th July. He
could not swear aB to the exaot amount
contained in each case as be had not
wtighed them nor could he see through
the unopened boxes. He took a preemption on tbe laud now occupied by
the building referred to on February
8, 1892. He did not know then that
the Government had reserved the land
as a site for a p.. wdor magazine but
he saw a notice in the Gazette shortly
after to that effect. The first intimation he had of tbe Government's reservation was when Mr. Hodgins oame
over to start tbe building of the magazine.
He saw the Gold Commissioner
about it and was told tbat tho building
could not be stopped.
Mr. Taylor pressed the witness to
say that he knew about the reserve before the preemption, but Mr. Hoover
resented this. Mr. Crease tried to
smooth the witness down, Mr. Hoover
said he was ready to answor the magistrate any question he put to him, but
not Mr. Taylor, wbo he thought had
insulted him by his questions. Mr.
Crease then shortly interpreted to the
witness the rule of the court but Mr.
Taylor still had some difficulty in getting direct answers to his questions.
Witness admitted that the building had
been used for the storage of  dynamite
and powder continuously since 1892.
Mr. Wilson shortly re-examined the
witness as to the circumstances attending bis preemption.
In answer to the magistrate the witness said that thero were over 900 boxes
of dynamite in the building on July 8.
He moved the boxes in himself and
they were all full ones. The building waB used for no other purpose
thnn for storing these boxes aud kegs
of black powder. Too contents of the
broken boxes were exposed. All the
dynamite thero was current stock
ai'd salenble
Mr. Frank Fletoher was then called.
He stated tbat he knew the building
referred to by Mr. Hoover. The president and agent of the Hamilton Powder Oompany had frequently told him
tbat it was their property.
In 1892 he surveyed Hoover's preemption and guaged the distance of the
same from the Oity limits by triangulating from a point 200 feet below the
O. P. R. wharf. The distance from
the City wus under 60 chain.!, He hnd
not got his field notes with him but
could swear tbat no poiut ou Hoover's
pre-emption was more than n mile
from the City limits.
A number of objections were rarsed
by Mr. Taylor ti the witness's evidence ohiefly because they were matters of opinion, the building in question not having been ereoted when tbe
survey was made. Cross examined,
Mr. Fletober said that he had not
measured the actual distance from tbe
building known as the powder magazine to the city limits. He based bis
knowledge of the same on measurements made from the very spot on
which the building stands.
Tha City limits were oleorly defined
hy the ollicial plan. The boundury is
tho ordinary high water mark. This
closed tbe oase for the prosecution.
Mr. Taylor then called Mr. George
Tunstall, the ageut in Nelson for the
Hamilton Powder Company. He said
tnat tbe building known as the powder magazine had been e eoted in 1892
by permission of the Provincial Government and had been nseti continuously since that date. The Oity had
hot officially notified his company to
vaoate the building. The original
cost of the building was $1300 und if
the powder was moved it would mean
a further $200. The oompany would
then have to purchase land nnd erect n
new building. At present no suitable
site had been obtained by the oompany.
Cross examined witness stated thnt
on July 8 there were about two.car-
loads of dynamite in the magazine.
The permission was given hy the Pro
vincial Government in general terms
for use for storing powder and did no:
apply to the Hamilton Powder Co.,
in particular. He bad never seen the
permit and therefore could not swear
to its terms. The company objected
to moving unless they received some
compensation from the Oity. Thoueh
he had not received official notice of
the prosecution, until he was served
with the summons, he had seen in the
local papers tbat the Oity Council had
determined to take proceedings.
Mr. Taylor then addressd the oourt
for the Company. For more than two
hours he ably and carefully went in
to all the points on which he based
his defence. These may be condensed
into thro:) heads. In the first place
the act defines a powder magazine as a
building wherein more tban 200
pounds of gunpowder or more than 10
pouuds of other explosives nre stored.
Mr. Taylor pointed out that indirect
evidence went to show thnt not more
than 150 pounds of black powder was
in the building on the Sth July but
that no evidence had been adduced to
show that there was one ounce of any
other explosive. Dynamite might or
might not be an explosive but no proof
of it being so hnd been shown in tbis
case, thorefoie it must be assmmed that
it was not.
Secondly the magazine had been
ereoted in 1892 whereas the Oity waB
only incorporated in 1897. Tbe explosives Act was not retrospective especially with regard to vested interests
and the City limits therein referred to
only applied to cities in existence
when the aot was passed (1888). It
would be a grent hardship it cities
were allowed to be bi.ilt near to old established powder magazines and then
call for the removal of the magazines
without compensating the the owners
of the same.
Thirdly the faot that the Hamilton
Powder Company were indioted for
keeping a common nuisance in tbe Supreme Oourt made it illegal to prosecute the company in tbe inferior oourt
for the same offense.
Mr. Taylor cited a number of cases
to substantiate his contentions and
also oritioised the evidence of Mr.
Fletcher as being merely mattors of
opinion, and tbat of Mr. Hoover as
evidence of an interested party.
ufr. Wilson replied shortly but with
considerable effect. Answering Mr
Taylor's points he said that as to the
first point dynamite was obviously an
explosive just as whiskey was liquor
under tho Liquor ActB. As to tbe
second point the Aot of Incorporation
distinctly gave the Oity all the
rights and pvivibges of existing cities,
one of which was to remove powder
magazines from its limits. As to the
third point, the indictment against the
company was for an offence committed
in June whereas this prosecution waa
for a repetition of the same offenoe on
another date viz., on July 8.
The magistrate in summing up said
that when the Oity was incorporated
all existing statutes would enure for
its benefit. The Explosives Act prohibited any powder mugazine being
kept within two miles of the Oity
limits. It waB unreasonable to assume
that the legislation would not, in a
young oountry, taken into consideration the rights of cities of the future
when framing tbe Explosives Act.

CHINA TO BE THE FIELD
The  Combination  Is  Supported  by  the
Governments   ol   England   and
the United States.
New Xork, July 13.���The Tribune to
morrow will publish the following:
A business alliance of American and
English capitalists haB been recently
formed which is of unusual interest
and importance beoaue ofj the leadin
positions held by these men on both
sides of tbe Atlantic, because of the
many millions of dollars involved In
it, because the United States Government is about to be asked to give it
his official sanction and moral sup-
ort, beouse England has already approved of it, and beoause the field of
its operations Is beyond tho jurisdiction of both nations.
The announcement of tbis' allianoe
was made yesterday, Thursday, by W.
F. Whitridge, of the firm of Gary
and Whitridge, wbo now fills the place
left vacant by the death of ex-Senator
Bryce as the chairman of tbe executive committee of the Amerioan-Obina
Development Oompany. The company is one party to the agreement and
the other is tbe British and Chinese
Corporation. This makes a combination of the most powerful capitalists
in the world. The field of their activities iB China.
THE  OAPE  PARLIAMENT.
Exoiting Scones   Are  Anticipated  on
the Opening Day.
Capetown, July 18.���The Oape Par
liament will open tomorrow and ex-
citiug scenes are anticipated, owing
to the attitude of Premier Sohreiner
ou the Transvaal question. A large
number of Opposition members favor
his impeachment. In the meantime
the Afrikander party is stirring up a
Boer agitation and doing its utmo-t
in this direction. An attempt to hold
a loyalist meeting at Worcester this afternoon was frustrated by the Afrikanders, who precipitated disgraoeul
scenes, forcibly dragging the Royalists speakers from the platform and expelling them from the hall amid jeers
and insults. The military authorities
here are pmchasing horses, males
uad wagons, and preparing to forward
supplies to Kimberley.
MAMMOTH SCHOOL OF SALMON.
Five Miles   Wide  and   of Unknown
Length.
Seattle, July 18.���A Post-Intelligencer special from Whatcom, Wash.,
says: While O. H. Sbubbo and D.
N. .McMillan were coming aoross from
Stuart's island last Monday their
steamer ran through the largest sohool
of salmon ever seen on the sound. It
was five miles wide and of unknown
length. The salmon were so thiok that
the little steamer had difficulty iu
getting through. At one time she

Washington, July 18.���The state department is waiting with anxiety developments in Guatemala. It is premature to say a decision has been
reached to send the Philadelphia from
San Franoisco to that oountry arid it
may bs that tbe presence of tbe Gunboat Vixen on the east const will be
regarded as sufficient for the present;
but there are hints of foreign action
that might involve a repetition of tbe
Corinto inoident and in that case probably it will be doomed necessary ,by
our Government to have stronger
naval representation at tbe seat of
trouble. It is said at the state department that the financial conditions of
Guatemala threaten severe less, to tba
American citizens. So far the United
States Government has not consented
to take any joint aotion witb England,
Germany or any other nation to bring
pressure to bear upon tho little Kepub.

THE PROPER COURSE.
Tbe President of the Board of Trade
is showing a proper regard for the dig.
nity and self-respect of that body in
issuing a call for another meeting, to
consider the recommendations of tbe
Counoil in respect to the subjeotB to be
inbmitted for disoussion at the conference of Boards to be held next
month at Rossland. The more tbo
affair is considered, tbe|more discreditable appears the aotion of the meeting on Monday last. It is utterly
without reason or excuse. If a Board
of Trade cannot disoass a matter so immediately and directly affectrng the
business interests of the oomrnunity as
tbo Eight-Hour law, there can be no
possible reason why Boards of Trade
should exist. Tbat law is not without
influence on every business oarried on
In the Kootenays, from running railways aud steamboats down to selling
peanuts. Boards of Trade are supposed to exist for the purpose of protecting
and promoting legitimate commercial
enterprises of all kinds, and where any
of these are prejudiced or injured they
are exoeoted to interest themselves sufficiently to Inquire into oauses and to
suggest remedies. Tbat is the principal function of a Board, and to pretend
tbat it cannot be exeroised in oaso of
some question that may happen to have
become involved in politics is too in
expressibly stupid to deserve a moment's thought. Tbere iB no subjeot
at present engaging the public attention that presses so strongly for the
fullest and most deliberate disoussion
as does tbis Eight-Hour law. Not
only the law itself would call for this,
but tbe results springing from the enforcement of it render Us discussion
a matter of first importance with all
the Boards of tbe district. They may
approve or condemn; that is aB it may
be; but tbe circumstances render it impossible that it can be ignored.
And when the meeting is held, it is
to be hoped that the members who
have intelligence enough to understand
the situation and spirit enough to resent the indignity put upon the Board
tbe other night will attend in force
and administer a fitting rebuke to the
mischievous element that apparently
exists for the sole purpose of making
trouble. It is high time it were stamp
ed out. Nelson haB outgrown the
methods of the camp boss and bully,
and aspires to something more respectable as well as more useful. The time
has gone by when this City can be made
tbe plaything of any coarse person who
mistakes insolence for wit and assur
ance for public spirit, and tbe fact
cannot be too dearly or emphatically
expressed. The threat of seoession iB
too silly to cause the least anxiety to
any one. Tbere will be no secession
or it will be bo insignificant that it
will be too much ashamed to make
open demonstration of itself.
m a Houston celebration, rather than
a civic display of patriotism ou tbe occasion of a Dominion anniversary.
The oommittee in charge of tbe boat
raoes made several purchases for
arizes at the different jewollury stores
in the City, distributing the patronage
is equally us possible botween them.
When this came to the ear of the great
lohu there was sulphur iu the atmosphere, and before the day was much
older the members of the committee
were compelled to cancel their purchases
nt two of the stores, tbo order having
been issued that everything required
for tbe prizes should be obtained from
Jobn'B favorite and from him alone.
The members of the committee made
the mistake of supposing tnat it wns
oitizeus' money, contributed for a public purpose, whereas it wns Jobn'B
money, whioh he had been graoiously
pleaBed to accept from a number of
humble and devoted subscribers.
It requires courage to suggeBt a bal-
��n e sheet in a case such as this. But
still thfre are those curious enough to
make the demand, bnBing it on the
old-fashioned idea that every houest
man is expected to give an account of
his stewardship. But whether forthcoming or not, it iB pretty sah to pre-
diot that Nelson will contribute to no
more Dominion Day celebrations iu
this loose fashion. Ou future occasions there will be a responsible official
authority, aB a guarantee that a citizens' fund will be adniiuistored according to the will of the citizenB and
without injustice to any.
A Satisfied Patron
DOMINION DAY FUND.
A correspondent writes: "For man
days tbe local papers gave precunei; i
to the list of subscribers for the Dominion Day celebration. Not a word
has yet appeared showing how the
large fund was disposed of. Is it not
about time the subscribers had a
glimpse of the balanoe sheet?" If it
ooncerned ordinary men only, governed by ordinary motives, tbis
would be a pertinent question under
the circumstances. But as the subscription in question woold seem to
have been raised for the benefit of one
man and his coterie of friends, the
contributors will probr.l.ly be told that
they bave nothing to do with a bal
anoe sheet and tbat tbey may content
themselves with tbe honor of having
bad tbeir money expended for tbem. It
was a large sum, about four thousand
dollars iu all, reckoning the entrance
fees with subscriptions, and men of
delicate and sensitive natures would
bave lost no time in rendering an account if entrusted with tbe control of
it. But in this case thu money was
raised, not to celebrate Dominion
Day, but to render John Houston still
more distinguished; aud as that remark -
able individual is neither delicate nor
sensitive in his nature, ho will consult
his own pleasure about acoonting for
it. |

At last the policy of lasiez faire haB
for tbe time being ended and tbe
great danger which looms over the
town has reoeived its first blow. Yea
terday, after a prolonged sitting the
magistrate convicted the Hamilton
Powder Oompany for an offence under
the ExploBiveB Act and inflicted a
flue of $200. It 1b to bo hoped that the
Oity will not be content witb this
alone but will oontinne their active
orusade against the powdsr companies
until they will either be compelled to
move or waste their substance in paying considerable tines. An ingenious
and novel point raised by the defence
wns tbat dynamite was not an explo
sive snbstanoe unless so proved to be in
the case. This is, to the layman, hair
splitting with a vengeance. "Sir,
said a lady to a well know u Cabinet
Minister from whom she was endea
voring to obtain a direct answer to a
pertinent question, "if anyone were to
ask you in the House of Commons
whether black wub whita, you would
reply thnt 'the Government hnd no
information which would permit me
to express an opinion to the contrary.' "
If reported correctly there were one
or two speakers at the Orangemen's
festival on Wednesday who rather over
stepped the bounds of good taste and
moderation in their zeal for tbeir particular religioua tenets. It is said
that abuse of opi clients in law and in
politics will often bring a man to ibe
fore. Possibly those who osteuta
tiousiy practico religion hope in like
manner to benefit themselves materi
ally by obeying this precept. But to
those who love moderation, tolerance
and fairness, such sectarian gas is
highly objectionable and can only
bring the authors of it into contempt.

Iho Match between tho Banks .tnd
Olnb team yesterday ended in a victory for tho former by 35 ruus. Tlio
batting of Messrs. Hcnthcote, Wil-
sonnnd R. Mnofarland was decidedly
porai, Messrs. Wetmore, Brown and J.
Elliot onrrying the bowling honors.
The fielding was not as Rood ns that
of the baseball team, one or two of tbe
more mature players finding some difficulty in stooping down to nick np tho
ball.    App lod is tho full score:
BANKS,
was looked upon by Borne us almost
moribund. It shows what is possible
by careful reorganization of a business
'ci meet tho changes of an advancing
country.
Bnt a short timo ngo, comparatively
speaking the company were fui trader's
only, and hero dealt principally with
Buffalo banters. The buffalo have
disappeared, bnt the large stores of the
oompany in Winnipeg, which are he-
inn still farther increased, aud where
liiisin"ss of tho most modern character
is clone, show what great changes have
boon effected, Tins is bnt an index
of what has of late been done throughout tho oountry,     Probably one of the
most remarkable features associated
with this report is that it is signed by
Lord    Btrathoona   and   Mount,   Royal,
who, wo believe, has given more than
sixty years'soivioo to the oompany,
and who entering their employ as a
junior dork,ha' filled all the principal
olliccs, and a: 1 ngth risen to bo
not only the go- ruor of the company,
but t'. he ono of tho most prominent
personages of ihe Empire. Lord
Btrathoona   is   not  unmindful of  the
services which have brought abont
those results, for no looking back over
the reports which wo have published
in reoent years, wo find that he
said :
"Whiln you aro now in your 85th
yoar of incorporation, never, I believe, during tho whole course of thai
long time havo you been served
with more zeal and ability than you
aro now being served by your commissioner and the officers acting under bis
orders. "
And again last year Lord Btrathcona
remarked :
"In former years T bave. spoken of
your offioers and employees in the Territory as being all that we could desire. I repeat that, in my opinion,
there is no company, no corporation���
be it in North America or anywhere
else���that is better served than you arc
by those who work fjr yon in North
America. "
Thn governor of this ancient corporation is to be muoh congratulated, not
onlv upon tbe persona] success wbich
ho bas achieved, but uuon the prosperity of tho oompauy in its 229th year,
as well tis upon tbo able administration and faithful service of the officers
of the company in this oountry.

tonight. The vessels wore Bigoted,
early in the afternoon and soon tho

As the transports slowly steameo up

into the rigging where they shouted
and cheered like mad. The health

the volunteers will be allowed to land

MINES OF I
KOOTENAY
���������������������������������������������������������������������������^
The  making   of a mine   lies  in the
Jotlioioun,   ���joonomioal,  oortect  development of a prospect.    It is work tbat
ooiti   money; work that     cannot    be
properly done by other tban an experienced person ; work tbnt takes a lot  of
time to  accomplish.   It is, especially,
work that is mot trying to the  stock
holder, and particularly so if he be uot
conversant witb mining.   Tbe average
bnver of stocks  expeots  comparatively
iiuiok,    and   certainly large,   returns,
when in fact  nothing   would warrant
any  snob  assumption.    Tbe   payment
of dividends   might   to   be one of   the
last things   aontemplated   when opening a mine, because  thera are numerous   other   things   more   important-
more important   because by their  doing this tbere will be more   reasonable
expectanoy  of   continuous   dividends.
It is  not tbe mere   matter  of   reaching tbe ore in the   oross-out; but to be
properly developed tbe property should
bare most thorough   and  complete exploitation aud, bo long as tbe manage
ment of a property  iR   so   conducting
operations, the  stockholders   may rest
assured that tbeir  very   best interests
are being kept in first place.
A mine may be ruined by poor management. The better way to avoid
such a disaster is to employ an expert
operator, who, while seemingly spending a lot of money, will actually be
working to ultimate porfeot economy.

LATEST  FROM MANILA.
Manila,   July   1.���On   Tuesday  the
troops had an   engagement   at Mantu-
pula on   the   south shore ot tbe   lake.
They found 500   insurgents   there   entrenched near tbe   shore.    The   Nape-
diau shelled the rebels and   a party  of
American troops numbering 135 landed
and drove   them  by a  sharp   running
fight to the hills where they were   too
strongly entrenched for a small force to
attack    them.   Two   of   tbe  cavalry
men were wounded and tbe bodies   of
10 insurgents were found.    It  is   supposed   that  euemys   loss  is  ��5.    The
volunteers are   greatly   debilitated   in
consequence of their hard campaigning
through    three   months   of    tropical
weather.    Since tbe middle of May no
volunteer regiment bas a sick list,  less
than 20 per oent.     Most   of  them   at
present have 25 percent, ill and few of
the regiments have less than one-third
Iheir number on   duty.    Nebraska has
suffered worst.    It  came  in from San
Fernandino a few days ago   with   less
tban two hundred men  in ranks.   The
South Dakota followed yesterday with
27,'i men  on  duty.   The Montana and
Kansas regiments at   San   Ferndanino
have not mora tban 250 available  men
eob.    Tbe morning after the Washington troops took Monon a week ago, only
208 men responded to tbe roll call. Tbe
Washington   men have   been  engaged
since March   12   in   preventing      tbe
insurgent   armies   of   tbe   north   and
south  torroing a junction   on  Laguna
Bay and tbey bave been engaged at the
same time with tbe   enemy   in  opposite  directions.   Twenty-four   of   th e
Nebraska officers are on   tbe   sick  list
and    the   Montana,   Washington  and
South Dakota   regiments   show 20  or
more officers in hospitals   or   sick  in
their quarters.
The regiments have borne the brunt
of the fighting. Their losses in killed and wounded ranged from 160 in
tbe Montana regiment to 280 in the
Nebraska. The Oregon regiment suffered severely. Of regulars the third
artillery is heaviest lose". Its killed
and wounded nnmber 123.

THE YUKON CHARGES.
Sir Oharles Tupper  Comments  on the
I.aunei Government.
Speaking at the Windsor Hotel last
Monday the veteran Conservative
leader, Sir Oharles Tnpper, said tbat,
referring to tbe Yukon charges he
could not help, but reiterate tbat the
obarges were of so grave and specific
a character aa to demand tbe most
searching and impartial Investigation
on the part of tbe Government. They
were just aa specific as the charges
made against Sir John Maodonald hy
tbe Hon. Mr. Huntingdon, charges
whioh resulted in tbe overthrow of
the Conservative Administration, nl
���bought it was proven that Sir John
personally was not implicated in tbe
scandal.
"I again say that the Laurier Government refused the demand for an investigation for the simple reason thnt
had it been granted it would not only
have proven corruption on the part of
the Yukon ornoials, but on the part of
certain members of the Administration as well. The Goveruent, for tbe
time being, has banlked an enquiry,
but the time will oome when it will
no longer be able to shield itself behind its majority tn tbe House. The
people of Canada will demand an
