The N elson Fire Department Are Eow the Champions
of All the Kootenays���A Most Enjoyable Day
Is Spent on the Shores of Slocan Lake.
'Twas rather   n  sleepy   crowd   that
left   Nelson   yesterday    morning   on
pleasure   beut.    The I. O. O.   F.    excursion loft Nelson at   7   a.   m.,   and
many of the passengers   seemed to  be
missing a couple of   hours of beauty--
except the   children,   of   whom   there
were   many,   who   naturally    took  n
fiendish   delight     in   torturing   their
mammas or papas with unending questions,     It   must  be    said,   however,
that the juvenilis   element under   the
oiroumstnnoes  behaved itself exreraely
���well.   Tlie oiowd  was  not entirely  a
sleepy ono. There were numerous stalwart young men whose vigorous frames
and fresh faces bore  evidences   of   recent training and   who   seemed   fully
capable of   holding   their own against
all comers,   nu   appearance which was
fully borne  out by subsequent  events.
The fire boys were   there, tho baseball
team was there, tho lacrosse team was
thore,   and   together   tbey   formed  a
most comforting   combination to those
who had or were   intending   to   take
financial   risks   on   Ihe different contests.    The   excursion   took   the   well
known, but none tbe less lovely   ronln
via Slocan Junction, and  the few who
wero not  occupied in   forecasting   tho
success of the   Nelson boys bad an op
portunity of seeing a varying lanflsoape
of snow   capped peaks, forest  covered
hills, and dashing and sparkling river
whose beauty would bo   bard   to   surpass, though unfortunately tlio  dwellers in Kootenay nre too   much   accustomed to beautiful scenes to   fully np
predate their  loveliness,
breeds contempt, and the
the inhabitants   of   a
pass without a remark
in less favored   places
dreds of miles to see.
Everything conspired to make yes
terday s Queen's Birthday celebration
a success ; of course there was "Queen's
weather," a pleasant sunshine but no
oppressive beat. On arriving at Slo-
Oity it, was found that the boat
mercifully late, thereby

in the train. The beautiful townsite
Slocan City wns duly admired, and

those fortunate enough to know uuy of
tho citizens congratulated tbem on
tha now lease of prosperity guaranteed to that charming town by Ihe
encouraging resnlts whieh ti 11 mining
development in that region is daily
In due course of the steamer  Slocan
arrived, suitably bodeokod for the   occasion.    Tho   firs   and   oodnrs of  the
neighboring   forests     had     evidently
boon cruelly despoiled for her   benefit
But what matter?   The   steamer   wns
beautifully   decorated   and   presented
a most handsome appearance as  befits
the luyal Canadian steamer on snob un
oconsion ns tho Birthday of the Queen.
While   the   New   Denver   band discoursed sweet iniiic tlie crowd immediately surged on to the   steamer���somo
800    excursionists    loft    Nelsou���but
through crowded it was au unfortunate
person who could not find   necominoda

Lake.    Thoso who  have  not  seen   it
oan never   imagine   its   beauty.    Pio-

sameness   broken   by a   rocky-slide  or
taugle of fnllen   timber which testifies
that  nature   destroys   but,  to   create.
But  the   steamor   was  swift, and before these beauties were   well realized
Silvorton wus reached.    Silverton acknowledged   the   approach, of the  boat
with Bovei* shots, nnd the New Denver
band   immediately  played an answering chorus,    Nine  more salutes   wero
firod nnd the stoumor   drew   up at tho
wharf.   Wharf's  a  prosaic, term suggesting flour sacks, oro sacks und lumber, but Silvorton wharf wns yesterday
a tiling of beauty.   It  was beautifully
decorated, tho arch    lending   from   it
being tastefully adorned with tir   nnd

word "Welcome"   in   red letter on   "*

sports prepared for them.
A large number of persons who bad
come in by oilier routes wore also
preseut. Leaving Silverton for the
moment wo will follow the steamer

baseball toani and lacrosse men, not
to mention the numerous fair ones
who came to witness tire prowess of
their husbands, finuceo or brothers ns
tlio case might be. Pour miles more
brought the steamer to New Denver,
beautifully situated on tlie shores of
the lako on a level spot where the
mountains have kindly fallen aside
leaving n triangular space opposite
a lovely semicircle of snowcapped
At New Denvor the Steamer discharged the rest of her passengers,
who for tlio nios1* part promptly Bouaht
material sustenance. Luncheon over,
the entire population of New Denver
acoompanii d of course, by all the visitors repaired to tho recreation
grounds. Tliese bad been oarefully
tended, and presented a splendid field
for all kinds of spoils. A grand stand
bad also been erected on the grounds,
which bad been carefully shrouded by
fir boughs. Prom there an excellent
view of the grounds could be obtained,
and there the numerous members of
the fair sex esconned themselves, nd-
niiraby situated to view tlio sports
without danger to their complexion.
Tbeir male companions proceeded to
examine the grounds, and none but en-
oouinms were heard.
The hour   of   tlio   great; race  was at
hand and shortly after   2   p.    m.    the
course was cleared.    The Nelson   hose
team was to   meet the Kossland   team
and intense interests   hung on the   result.    There was a sli-jlu difference of
opinion   before   the   race,  tlie   Nelson
team wishing In   race with their hose,
and the   Bossland   team insisting   ou
running without.   The   Rosslaud boys
were obdurate.   They   had determined
| to run light so the matter was  left  to
ihe   New    Denver   sports   committee
They decided in favor of the Hossland
men and   accordingly   no   hose   were
carried.    Tbe course was cleared   with
some difficulty, so eager were tlie spectators to get a view of the race.   There
was one false start,    and then   started
a race it was worth going miles to see.
The Nelson boys are a fast lot, but the
Kosslanders   are   no    slouches    either
and were, moreover, well trained, nnd
the result   was   a  close  finish.    Tho

part   oi   the distance it   was au   even
thing, but during   the last  50   of  the
300 yards tho   Nelson   boys   began   to
draw ahead.    Inch by ino.li   they gained amid the yells of tho spectators, and
"���filially they passed   tho  winning  post

i remarkable feat.
Tho time for the 200   yards   dash   was
clocked at 211 seconds.    Thero   wus   no
stop   watch   on   the  ground, hut   the;
timo was oarefully taken, and the time
may be relied upon   as   being  practi
cally accurate.    The Nelson men lairly
won   tbo   title of   tho   Champions   of
Kootenny. In fact if taken in hand and
carefully trained   it is very Improbable
that there is a fire team anywhere in
the wost that can approach them, The
Nelson fire hoys covered themselves
with glory yesterday, and the whole of
Nelson is proud of them today. Their
redoubtable opponents wero beaten but
not disgraced. Thoy made an exceedingly lino run. It should be chronicled here that tlie Kossland men accepted their defeat in a true,sportsmanlike spirit, There wore no disputes,
and it was admitted on all sides that
the race was won nu its merits, Tlie
Nelson team consists of: J. Thompson,
01.  Nuim,  W.  Lillie,   A.    Jeffs,    0.
Archibald, J. .1. Chambers, J. Campbell and 11. Houston. W. Pfelflor and
V. J. Bradley were snare men and (J.
Steele  officiated  as  captain   of   tho
Tho Rossland team wero: ,T. Allan,
C. R. MoBride, O. W. Wilson, R.
Mcllmoyl, .). W. Ross, C. G. Atkins
nnd E. Devlin, Tbey also had two
spare men.
The next item on llio programme
was the Nelson baseball team vs. the
Sandon team, though the latter team
was recruited from New Denver,Slocan
City and oilier places besides Sandon.
Here,    however,  thu   Nelson hoys ouco
more  demonstrated  thoir superiority
iu tho hold of sport.    In tho lirst  iun-
tweon the first and second fingers. It
was u very nasty cut nud ho was ol>-
liged to quit the field. J. Neelands
took his place'; and very creditably did
he acquit himself of the difficult
position of catcher. During the fourth
innings L. Waters cuught a unsty hit
in the eye, delivered by a band which
held the ball just after ho reached second base. H. Houston, however, oame
out to run for him and be soon recovered. Iu the fifth innings S. Neelauds got an awkward fall while attempting to reach first base. Ho was
completely winded for some time,
but he nianngerd to pull himself -to
gether and later on resinned play.
It is diffloult to criticize the game,as
the whole Nelson team played excellent hell and quite outclassed their opponents. L. Waters, however, pitched
consistently well throughout tbe gamo,
and Houston caught well until ho
wai injured. Phair made a couple of
good catches, and both H. Wright
aud Campbell brought off gallery
catches in the long field, while George
Partridge did somo very effective work
at first base. The game eventually
ended with the score of 14 to 8 in favor of Neison, who only batted six
times to their opponents seven.
Nobody won the hox of cignrs offered
hy W. Thnrmun for the first home
run. In fact only two three-baggers
were made. J. Neclands being the first
and L. Waters the second,
iug is tlio   official score:
1     2     :l    4    B    fi
Sandon��� 10     0     0     0     1
Nelsou- 8     1     8     0     1     0
The teams were as follows:
Nelsou���H.    Houstou,   catcher;    J.
Waters,   pitcher;     (1.    Partridge,   lb;
J. Neelands, 2b; D. Blackwood, 8b; S.
Neclands, s. s. ;   A.    Will.   r.   f, ;   J.
Phair, o. f. :   J.   Campbell,   1. f. ;  H.
Wright, also played as a substitute.
Sandon���H. Cainpeau, catchor; P.
Murphy, pitcher; F. Bailey, lb;
Brown, 2b; David 8b; J. Browney, a.
s. ; G. Long, c. f. ; T. Anderson, l.f. ;
Dave Sheen, r. f. ; E. Chesley was a
most   efficient   uni-piro.
Tho Sandon base ball team resigned
after their seventh innings, aud the
lacrosse game between Nelsou nud
New Denver was the next nnd final
event. Lacrosse is always a pretty
and interesting gamo to watch, aud
yesterday's display was no exception,
though the Nelsou team once more
proved too mnch for their opponents.
Tho ground was favorable for a fast
game, and there were somo flyers playing so tho game was both fast and
interesting. The Nelson team gave
many displays of pretty combination,
and individual excellent plays were
frequent. Tlio Nelson aggregation soon
nsserted its superiority, nnd a gonl wns
registered in short order, A. Jeffs being the successful player. The game
for a time became moro evon, but socn
the ball wns hovering dangerously
near tho Now Denver goal, J. A.
Fraser registering tbo second point.
Por some time nfter this the play wus
fairly open and good exhibitions were
frequent on both sides. After a lime,
however, Perrier mado a splendid run
and passed it to tlie centre, when) tbo
ball was rushed through the goal, it
being impossible to say who nctnully
made the winning bit. Shortly after
this 3. A. Fraser scored another goal,
placing tbo score Nelson 4, New Denver, 0. Tlio evening now began to
como on and after about fifteen minutes play a fierce storm arose, raising
*--11.-11 clouds of dust that it was impossible to see the ball. Tlio gamo was
consequently abandoned, the Nelson
team winning as before started. Besides those already mentioned J.
Thompson and D. Blackwood particularly distinguished themselves, tbontth
all the team played well. The Nelson
team included D. Rutherford, goal;
Lynch, poiut; D. Blackwood, cover
point; J. Thomson, first defense; Mac-
Nicol, second defense ; A. Jell's, center; F. Mcnary,first homo; Henderson,
second home ; K. Perrier, third home ;
J. A. Fraser, outside home, and C.
Archibald, msido home, H. Wright
officiated as field captain. The New
Denver team, which included men
drawn from Kossland and Sandon, was
composed of W. Thompson, goal; It.
Qrierson, point; Langcii, cover; W.
Meldruni, 1st defence ; J.  Devlin.   2nd
def. R. Thompson, 8rd defense; W.
Cliffe, center; MeViohic, 1st home;
D. Lewis, second home; W. Coulter,
It will   bo observed   that  tho   New
Denver played one mnn short.
Thu game did not close till about
6:80, nnd nfter an adjournment for
dinner n photograph of the hose team
was taken, und then most of those
who were not obliged to go away weut
to sen "Charley's Aunt" which was
played in New Denver last night by
the Bittner Company. The play ovor
curly everybody adjourned to n dunce
spooiullv trot tun up for the occnsiou
nnd so euded a most pleasant day,
of Silvorton   was one bower of  green, I
and was lined with shady uud prettily
decorated   stands which   enabled  the
verv numerous spectators (thero was a '
big   crowd at Silvertou   yesterday)   to
seo the contests iu comfort.
The first item on the programme
was nn association football match betweeu Silverton and Sandon. The
game was well contested and productive of good pbiys. but the home team
proved ton much for the visitors winning by live goals to none. The Cnle
(Ionian sports camo -next and created
much interest. Tho first event was the
100 yards dash won by B. M. Wilson,
in ll,1., seconds, with J. S. Gusty,
secoud ;. Next was tho standing long
jump whioh J. S. Gusty wnu with
the splendid leap of 11 feet 3**.; inches,
G. S. McLend being second with a
jump of 10 feet 4 inches. In putting
tlie shot G. S. McLeod was successful
with a put of 41 feet, G. S. Gusty being a good second with 8!) feet (i inches.
J. S. Gusty ngain came to the fore in
the Btnading high jump which he won
with 4 feet fi1., inches. G. S. McLeod,
being uoxt best with 4 feet %% inches.
J. S. Gusty also won the ruuuiug hop,
step and jump with 41 feet 4 inches,
G, ti. McLeod being again second with
40 feet 2 iuch"s. The running long
jump was also won by J. S. Gusty
with 18 feot 2 inches, R. Nichols being the runner up with a jump of 17
feet, 1 inch. .T. Gusty was again
successful in the 100 yards hurdle
rnco. His time was 131.' seconds, B.
M. Wilson beiug second. He likewise
won the 220 yards dash in 25 seconds with T. Henderson second. Q.
S. McLeod won the pole vaulting
clearing 8 feet 8 inches, R. Nicols
being a close second with eight feet six
inches. J. S. Gusty gave a most remarkable display of athletic versatility and was quite properly awarded
the handsouio gold medal given to the
best all round nthlete.
Tho double   handed drilling  contest
came   next    and   was won by   Alex-
nnder   Ross and Michael Burns of the
Yellowstone   mino,     who   drilled   88
inches   iu   15   minutes.    Hansnn     St
McDonald   wero     second     with     86
inches.    This   pair cams from Sandon
and wero decidedly the local favorites.
They    did     some   very   smart   drill-
changing.       Stevenson    &   Morrison
of Rossland   were   third,   drilling  85
inches iu   the   time.     In   tho   single
hauded drilling contest Michael Burns
sneceeded   in   performing   the grand
feat of drilling 18:i-4' inches,   A. Ring-
wood   beiug second with   15% inches.
Tho horse races were  the next   item
of   attractions.   The   "free   for   all" l
was won by Risor belonging to George
Weutworth, of    Calgary, Claudo   Cre-1
gnn's Rosslnnd being second.   Each of!
tho threo heats   was   won   by a head.
There were threo entries for the  quarter mile   Slocan race,   the    successful
horse being Dexter belonging to A. P.
McDonald. Tho pony race was won by
the well   known   pony   55,   A. Thor-
burn's Romany being second.
Tho horse races closed tbe day's
proceedings which wore enlivened by
tho strains of the city band and the
Snndou band. Mr.W. Hunter was Marshall of the proceedings, Mr. J.
Howes president of the committee and
R. O. Matheson, Secretary. All who
visited Silvorton were loud in their
praises of tho hospitable trontmeut accorded tbem, and the Silvertoninus nre
to bo oongratulnted on having made
tiioir celebration such a success.
About 7 :30 p. m. the steamer Slocan
left New Denver on its way to convey the different excursionists to the
special trniu nwaiting them at Slocan
City, whence it returned to Nelson,
though not without incidents. Tho
very sovere storm which occurred
eailier in tho oveniug had blowu several
trees ncross the track which grently
delayed the train. In fact but for
Engineer W. MacNab's great vigilance an accident might very easily
have occurred. As it waH, it wub not
until 12:30 a. m. that the tired but
triumphant Nelsnnites nrrived iu the
City, tlins ending a long tiring
most enjoyable day.

Berliu, May 24.���The tiibercolusis
congress was opened in the Reichstag building this morning with 2,O0U
members, of which 200 were delegates
from German nud Foreign Goverumeut. The Empress of Germany,
who is patronessa of the congress, was

of the Interior, C. O. O. Sadowuski
Werner, who delivered the inaugural
address, said that the tuberculosis
congress and the peace conference at
The Hague constituted memorable
pages in the history of civilization, establishing a posterity to form nu idea
of the spirit of the preseut ago.
Welcome speeches and responses
followed. The representatives of tbe
United States, France, Great Britain
Italy, Austria-Hungary and Germany
were among those who mndo brief re-
marks. Tbey were nil vigorously
ajplnuded, with the exception of Surgeon K. C. Boyd, who represented the
medical corps of the United States
nnvy at the congress. He was heard
in silence. At the completion of the

glorious and the arrangements were carried out without a hitch. During iho
afternoon the Queeu planted uu oak
sapling ou tho west lawn of Windsor
Castle. She drove along Kenneth
drive to tlio spot and was assisted in
the planting by the Duke of Saxe-Co-
burg aud Gotha. Ml the members
of the Koynl family witnessed the ceremony. Her Majesty then continued
her diivo in the direction of Frog-
more. The Military Knights of Windsor presented an address to the Queen
at noon in tbe corridor of the castle,
and received the warm thanks of Her
Majesty. A pretty incident was tho
presentation to the Queen, this morning, by each of her grand and great
grandchildren now at the castlo of a
tiny bouquet of flowers. These descend-
ents of Her Majesty, who was deeply
touched, also kissed her.
The most enjoyable performance
for this week of the Harry Lindley Company wns given last evening
when the chnrmiug 'Little Lord
Fauutleroy" wns presented. The
threatening weather and tho absence
���f hundreds of visitors and excursionists
from the city kept many people away
but there was a fair sized audience. While a child is the chief character in the piece it is by no means a
children's piny but is one thnt oan be
eujoyed by all. Little Ethel Lindley
made a capital Cedric Errol. She
was very taking and completely
captivated the audiences and at Miss
Fliut Mrs. Errol wns a decided
success. She is an uctross of considerable ability and has made a good impression in Nelson. Miss Ward took
the part of tho adventuress very acceptably. Sho is a clever actress and
has doue good work this week. Mr.
Liudley wns irresistible as Hobbs. His
fun created roars of laughter. Mr.
Talbot wns nlao \iood and Mr. Secord

The pluy was very well staged and in
dicates the pieces for the remainder of

Whether  there   have  been one hundred and fifty new connections with the
water mains of the City siuce January
last,   or half tho number or double the
number,   The Miner does   not   know,
nor  at present   does it intend to  take
the trouble to find out.    The discussion
of the money bylaws with the   intelligence necessary to form a sound judgment as to  the polioy of  voting them
does not  require  that   the ratepayers
shall   have  exaot    knowledge   of   all
these   little   details,   which   seem   to
have a charm for a certain variety   of
mind.   They can reach a decision  by
a shorter road, and one that is more in
keeping   with   the character  and importance of  the   subijeot.    The   City
employs    an    Engineer,   whose  duty
it is to study the  water   question and
to know   all   about   tne   waterworks,
their condition, their present capacity,
and their capabilities   to   meet future
demands on them. If the Engineer does
not know of these things and is incapable of advising with respeot to them,
he is not fit for the position and   does
not earn his salary.    He is so very unfit that it was criminal to  have   employed him in the first place, and it is
a fraud on the City to continue to  piy
the  salary voted him by the Council.
No    one    supposes   for  a   moment,
however, that   it is as bad as this; no
one, that  is, but  an  odd person here
and there who has a bee in his bonnet,
and who thinks he   is the only person
in   the    Kootenays     who    possesses
the  lenst   knowledge   and  experience
of municipal affairs.    All the rest  are
The Engineer is believed to be entirely capable by the members of tbe
Counoil, who come into closest contact with him, and have therefore tlie
best opportunity of knowing; and the
public bave confidence in him. He has
reported that the present works are uot
adequate to the wants of the City,
and that they are becoming less and
less so as the population increases.
We are warned that next winter, unless something be done in the moan-
time, the town will be in very bad
shape so far as its water supply is con
cerned. That is expert opinion, based
on a complete knowledge of the circumstances. It is not the opinion
of a disappointed amateur in municipal affairs, whose bitterness keeps
him in oonatant quest of opportunities
for carping and snarling criticism ;but
of a perBon who is paid to know and
does know, and whose duty it is to
report tbe facts precisely as they exist.
Our water system is not equal to
the present demands of tbe City. We
did not require any one's report to as
sure us of this, for the experience o
last winter afforded ns a rough and
ready method of ascertaining it for
ourselves. Nor do we require expert
opinion to know that what is insufficient now will become moro
and more insufficient as the population grows. But if doubtful of our
own senses, we have professional opinion in support of both.
There may have beon ono hundred and
fifty, or more or less, new connections
sinoe January, and there may be double
the number in addition befora the
year is out. It is not necessary to count
the exact number in the one caBe, or
to estimate with nicest precision in
the other. We all know that since
January mauy new houses have been
completed and oooupied, and we require to be very deaf and very blind if
wo do not know that mauy more aro
in prooeBB cf construction. We must
be a very stupid lot of people iudeod if
we oannot distinguish on evory side of
us the most conclusive evidence that
the population of the Oity is increasing
at a rapid rate. One of the best informed men in Nolson,1 whose facilities for forming a sound jadgment are
superior to most, assured The Miner
the othor day that the present population of the Oity is not less than 0,500.
This is very rapid increase ; and in the
faoe of it, nnd of the certainty that it
will bo continued, it is appalling to
think what may bo the consequences
another winter should nothing be done
in tbe meantime to inorease our water
supply, and to improve tbe system of
its distribution. It would be suoh
criminal folly to neglect it that we refuse to suppose for one moment tlio
ratepayers will foil to vote the money
necessary to enlarge the works. To
talk of a little beggarly increase of taxation as a deterrent to a duty of this
kind is an insult to the electorate of
the Oity.
add to the   industries of tlie City  and
thus increase its importance,   wo will
vote to grant both franchises.    A   now
City  building   nnd the   extension  of
the electric light    system   aro not necessities.    It  is possible to do without
oither.    But there is inconvenience at
the City   Hall   for   lack of  sufficient
accommodation, nud the town is not so
poor tbat   it  cannot   provide ull that
is required.    We   have already invested heavily in the   electric light plant,
but to   realise   to the best possible advantage it is necessary we should supplement   this   with   further   expenditures.    It is a simple business proposition.     A   better  water    service   and
extended sewerage are absolute   necessities; these do not admit of   nny  sort
of question   or argument.    We havo to
supply   both   or endanger   tbo  public
health through want of necessary conveniences.   This we cannot   afford under any   consideration.    It   will be  a
good  day's   work  foi   Nelson to vote
all tho by-laws.

The Yacht Shamrock  Will Be Manned
By au   English and Scotch Crew.
Boston, May 24.���A despatch to the
Herald from Glasgow snys :
| The skippers, under) officers and
crew, have been definitely selected for
the Shamrook and all told they will
make 52 men.
Archie Hogarth will be |in charge
with Captain Wringo,]as assistant
sailing master. Howe, who was first
mate of the Britanio, will be chief
officer, aud Steward, wbo was mate ou
tbo Antrild, will be second officer,
with Messrs. Croker and Livingtson
third aud four officers, respectively.
The other appointments are one b* t-
swain, two boatswain's niati ����� tWJ
carpenters, two sailmakers, nine leading hands, including masthead and
bowsprit end men, twenty-six ordinary seamen, two stewards and two
A sizing np of the crew shows a
few Scotch and English���29 English
sailors and 21 Scotch. The selections
were made from the best available, bo,
except the name, which will be
painted in the stern, there is nothing Irish about her not an Irishman
on board of her and the name Sham-
rook, in view of all these facts, iu no
way iudieates what she was intended
to be an "Irish boat," and no one for
one moment claims it.
At this cabling neither Sir Thomas
Lipton nor the Royal Ulster Yacht
Club people know definitely tbo ex-
fact date of the launching of the
Shamrook, thongh from good authority it is stated it will be ou June 5
or 6, just two dnys ahead of tbo Columbia, zshkz; -^
Tbe iiiuiiching luvitatious have not
beon issued yet. Secrecy in connection with the Shamrock is oven keener
than beforo, as the Tborneyorofts
want to drop her in tho Thames without tho knowledge of auy one, and
they had two piers built with a fence
on eaoh side so that uo broadside snap
shots can bo had. The Sbamiock will
he slid down the ways with a canvas
covering, a sly enough performance.
There iB no question that confidence
is gaining here and the preseut. belief
is that the Shamrock will make the
best hid for tho cup of any challenger.
Of late Sir Lipton shows a moro confident feeling thnn he had in tho
early stages ou the controversy. His
friends encourage him in the belief
that bo has nil even chance to win,
Whatever opposition ho met in oertain
high-toned yachting quarters anent his
building for the cup has for tho most
pnrt faded out and his nluck in building the Shamrock is uow commenced.

Tho sun rose into a cloudless sky
yesterday und thero was "just sullicient
breeze to catiso the flags that were
raised in all directions to flap lazily
against the poles. It wns Queen's
weather aud bespoke a good day's outing. The different excursions that left
tbo city carried away so mnny people
that the streets woro deserted all day
and Nelson never appeared so absolutely quiet. As the weather was so
favorable about half of thoso who
had not taken advantage of the opportunities to attend tho celebrations
at Kaslo, Silverton and New Denver
packed appetisiug lunches in various
shaped baskets and hied themselves
to tho lake where boats were taken for
the cool retreats above and below the
City. Fishing rods wero the most prominent feature of tbe outfits and the
elusive trout wero not allowed to cole
bratp the Queen's Birthday without
Nothing occurrred in the City duriug tho morning. The hot sun shone
down ono deserted streets and the few
mortals who moved about did nol
exert themselves more than the law
allowed. After lunch home energetic
individuals organized children's sports
and a neat sum of money to bo spent
for prizes was raised in a short time.
Then the fuu began. Baker stroet
was taken possession of aud a multi
tude of little people defied the blazing
son and raced timo and again. There
were all sorts of races on foot and
awheel. A Miner man made an industrious attempt to socuro the names
to tbe fortunate contestants hut the
events came so thick and fast and the
winners disappeared so modestly after
the events that the rob was a hopeless
one and had to he given up. When
the exohequer, which was Ohalres Waterman's hat ran dry it was passed
around agaiu and the money was never
Tho races continued until after six
During an interval two baseball
teams gathered in tho shade of the
Queen's Hotel and a very exciting
game of hall took place. Several hundred people witnessed tho match and
liberally applauded the efforts of the
embryo champions.
About four o'clock a gust of wind
aud lowering clouds indicated that
the weather clerk was up to somo mischief and a downfall of large rain
drops continued tho suspicion. It infused great energy into the members of
various joyous picnic parties uud boats
were taken for a quick run homeward. From every nook along the
shore a boat darted out, turned towards tho Citv and shoved its nose into tho waves that were lashed white
by tho angry wind. But, it was about
time to get home anyway and. no one
could grumble about a few rain drops
after a day of such glorious weater.
Tired out bnt happy mortals toiled up
hills to their homes abont dinner
time and declared thoy had thoroughly
eiijovod the eigtieth birthday of
Queen Victoria. There were sotre
baskets of lish hut no one had much
difficulty in carrying homo all he
caught. The town lapsed into state of
qnietnes in the evening. The usual
pyrotechnics wero lucking hut an occasional tiro cracker sputtered out
some smoky loyalty ami delighted the
hearts of various obildren. Toviards
midnight the streets become alive with
returning excursionists in various
stages of enthusastio loyalty who soon
sought their various beds and thus the
day in Nelson terminated.

It is not necessary to add that it is
impossible to transact all the business
outlined above in a satisfactory manner
in this one room. Opposition to this

arise either from ignorance, or prejudice

"Workingman" Protests  Against Disorders in tbe East End.
Editor of The Miner:
Sir;���Keferiing to tho communication of "Law and Order" which appeared iu Tbo Miner a few days ago,

if the Oity Council hns concluded tu
give th* denizens of East Haker Htreot
four mouths to remove elsewhere?
The fact i�� tbat the incessant
pounding upon a seoro or more of
pianos all uight to thiise living in
that neighborhood, wbo have contracted
tho habit of arising at (1 or 7 o'clock
in the morning and going to work like
decent people, this nuisance has become unbearable.

Oity Oouncil cannot be hold accountable but lor whioh tho police are greatly
to blame, for tbo reason that these
particular ovils have been brought to

As the annoncement has been made
that the Government ot British Columbia purpose lorcins* the Amenfluient
to the Metalliferous Mines Inspention
Act, making eight hours a working
day for those employed underground
in metalliferous mines; Seo. 13.���"Ko
person shall be employed nndergrounrl
in any metalliferous mine for more
than eight hours in every twenty-four
hours;" the undersigned as representing one of the two parties mainly
affeoted, consider it advisable to make
public their views on the situation
created by this uncalled for legislation,
and to indicate what their line of aotion must inevitably be.
While the undersigned are determined to respect and adhere to the laws of
the Province, it may be pointed out
tbat this law is far renching in the
injuries it must inflict upou the mining interests of the Province, and on
the amount of wages earned by tlie
It means reducing the hours of labor
in the mines from 20 hours a day to
1(1 hours, as many of the mines are so
circumstanced that three shifts cannot be worked to advantage. Tbis
me",ns a reduction of 20 per eent in
ths amount of the production of many
mi es, aud a reduction of 20 per cent
in the development work beiug carried on in the mines preparing for
production and a reduction in the supplies used in tne mines.
The most amicable relations existed, and still exist, between the em
ployers and employed at the mines.
The men were earning good wages,
equal to any being paid in camps in
tlie United States, and higher than
those paid in many,and they were reii-
dering good   services for tnese  wages.
If anv discontent was rife at the existing state of affairs, it was not gen
erally known. It is therefore deeply
to be regretted that the Legislature
has see fit disturb the existing harmony, to interfere with tbe growing
prosperity of the mining districts,
to reduce the wages earning power of
the men employed, and to interfere
with the free right of contract hitherto enjoyed.
As to tho future, nfter the 1st of
Jnne next, at the mines represented
by tho undersigned, ohe standard rats
of wages thut will be paid to skilled
miners for an eight hours working day
will be three dollars ($11.00), and other
labor will necessarily be also paid for
according to the time worked.
