Tarte,   Canadian   Minister
J Works.
Mr. Prank Beer who has recently returned from Tiont Lake gave The
Miner some interesting nows of tho
miues in tbat district.
A tunnel hns been run on the Maybe
mine in order to strike tho Nettie L
lodge. This latter property iB being
energetically opened up. The lower
tunnel is now 80 feet in. Phis will
strike the vein nt it depth of 300 feet
and doubtless place the Nettle L on a
permanent shipping basis.
A now strike of rioh grey oopper,
running high in value, has boen made
on Brown Creek near Ferguson on a
claim owned by "Doo" Johnson of
Rossland,
Messrs. Godson and Young of the
Grent Western Mines Ltd., who own
the Nettie L, are expeoted at Trout
Lake next week iu order to look over
thoir property.
Development work on the Little Robert Group of eight claims is showing
that property up well. Thelead is
some five feet wide and contains a
streak of 18 inches of solid ore besides
sovernl smaller stringers. Assays from
this property give 411 ounces silver, 47
per cent, lead nud 5Ji�� per cent, copper
mnking a total value of $:S2(i to the ton.
Mr. Boer ami his brother will shortly
commence work on tho Beatrice at the
head of Mohawk creek.
This property is said to bo ono of the
best in tbo Lnrdenu.
Somo wonderful specimens of ore
have been brought in from the Pedro
group on Oanyon Creek. The rock
is heavily Impregnated with a fine
grade of groy copper. Assays as high
ns fl,281.76 to tho ton aavo been obtained from it.

Mr. Drewery is back iu Nel��on from
a ilyiug visit to Toronto. He spent
four days at his company's property,
tbe Lake Shore, near Moyie. There
are 15 men at work there and next
week 4(1 additional hands will be taken
on. The machinery for the new
air compressor is now at the mine and
will bo put nn in a very few days.
Tbe Goodeihnm Blaokstook outfit has
secured the St. Eugene mine, though
Mr. C. D. Porter nnd other Spokane
mining men mnde a oloso bid for it.
This will probably prove to be the
most vnluable mine in East Kootenay.

Mr. J. M. Williams returned to Nel -
sou from the Slocan yesterday. He is
well pleased with tho Chaplenu (the
mino ho has bonded) and seems confident that it will even exceed his expectations. He brought with him some
tine specimens of rich sulphide ores
from tbo miue which he estimates will
assay at least $300. Mr. Williams has
ei��ht men ut work on the Ohapleau,
nnd in order thnt no falso impression
may be Miven, he is willing to make
known tbe fact that his men are paid
$:!. fiO a day. The reason for this is
that nnder tho terms of the bond he is
bound to do a certain amount of work-
on the property within a specified time,
therefore if ho desires to keep tho
property he must get miners, and, for
the time being only (lot ub hope) is
bound to pny the wages fixed hy the
union.
Mr. Percy Dickenson has started work
on the Skylark and Ranger claims
Tho ore from this property is h rich dry

London, July 22.���The Field, this
morning, referring tc the races between Shamrock and Britannia, says
it thinks the trials; are of no specific
value as it is impossible to form aa
opinion of the challenger's oapabili-
tiies against such an old yaoht. The
Shamrock's approximate rating is 105
while the Britannia last season was
rated at 06.8. The Shamrook beat Britannia in !i0 miles by 13 minntea and
20 seconds. By the Yaoht Racing Associations' scule she would have to
allow her 13 minutes and 40 seconds.
Continuing the paper says; ''Taking
into consideration the smaller topsail
and the leisurely manner in which she
was sailed it may be taken that she is
remarkably fast vessel and without accepting the ten seconds statement tbere
is no doubt that she is remarkably
quick in stays. If Brittania is anything like Britannia of old, Shamrock's performance in beating her hy
six minutes and 10 sec nds in tbe run
from the Ryde piei to the Nabb la
undoubtedly highly creditable."
Bisley. July 20. ���Tbe principal event
here today was the shooting in the
second stage of Her Majesty's, tbe

shots at 500 yards and 15 shots at the

silver medal. At the first distance tbe
Canadians Bcored as follows: Crow,

In tho Lady's prize, Simpson, Canadian, secured the ouly highest possible score thos far made.

NELSON. B. O.
THE CUP RACK
A cable dispatch published yesterday brings into strong relief the absurd
character of the contest for tbe America Cup, in which the general interest
is deepening as tho date of the race
approaches. It is understood at Southampton, so the cable statts, that the
New Yok Yacht Club havo consented
to the Shamrook being towed in tbe
event of a oalm while crossing the Atlantic ThiB may seem au entirely
gratuitous permission, but it really is
not One of the stipulations in connection with the contest is tbat the
challenging yacht must make the rendezvous on her own bottom. If from
Great Britain she must sail across the
Atlantio; she cannot be towed or carried. If built on the St. Lawrenoe,
she muBt go on her own bottom down
the Gulf and out into the ocean. This
condition entails that tho challenger
shall be strongly enough constructed
to withstand any seas likely to be experienced on the Atlantio. The defender
on the other hand only requires to be
strong enough to sail down the OoaBt
from Rhode Island to New York, and
then, at tbe risk of a breakdown, meet
tbe challenging yaoht on what is termed an outside oourse. Tbe advantage
of thiB is tbat she may be as lightly
constructed as is consistent with reasonable safety, thus insuring the most favorable condition for racing. It is the
difference in the requirements of the
contending yachts tbat is responsible
for the fact that in British yachting
oiroles only a languid interest is taken
in the event which sets this continent,
in a  ferment of excitement.
The permission in the case of the
Shamrook is a courteous one, although
it in no way helps to put tbe two
yaobts on a footing of equality. It
was necessary notwithstanding to build
the oballenger strongly enough to face
the weather and seas of an Atlantio
voyage. We are not bound to oredit
the reportB, but oan believe tbe builder of the Shamrock has sailed pretty
closely to the danger line, as she is as
nearly a mere shell as the stipulation
in question would permit. It is not
probable, however, tbat in this respeot
she is on equal termB with the defender, ll'sse different conditions are
obviously uniair to the challenger,and,
it may be interesting to know, were
never contemplated by the original
donors of the Cup, as the letter of gift
to the New York Club abundantly testifies.
All America is beginning to havo its
interest in the Cup race sharpened,
and the performances of the rival
yachts are eagerly canvassed. Colnm
bia, in her trials with Defender, sailed
clean away from her. Shamrook hns
defeated Britannia, but, good aud persistent performer aB Briitannia is, the
result does not prove that Shamrock
is even as good as Defender. Fair
testB were given to Navahoe and Vigilant when they crossed the Atlantic to
raoe with British yachts. They did
not succoed in oarrying away any
classic prizes, such as the Royal Vic
toria Yaoht Club Gold Cup. Ttis
was fortunate, otherwise if the Cnp
had come to this side it might not
havo been recovered.
for the Lardenu country, tbe home of
the glaciers; even the coal pits of Fernie are mentioned, and warm praise
is given to the beautiful Lake Moyie.
But Nelson is ignored. The writer
has evidently never visited us, or if
he hns, the greeu eyed monster, jealousy, stayed his hand. Few plaoes in
tbe Province are more charming than
Nelsou, and that is saying much wheu
wo remember that it. is a Province of
charming pluces. The good people of
Rossland who have a holiday aud
whose hearts yeurn for uu outing cannot do better than to mnke a visit to
Nelson, with its boautiiful scenory of
lake, river nnd mountain. It IB not
too late for Tho Minor to mako good
its omission.
IN DEFENCE OF OTIS.
The complaisance of the Senate in respect to the Drummond County and
Grand Trunk Bills will avail nothing
in the face of their contumelious rejection of the Redistribution Bill.
But in spite of all the organs and correspondents have said there remains
the suspicion that tho Government
expected this fate to overtake it, if,
indeed, they did not secretly welcome
it. That, however, will not prevent
tbe angry roar that will go np from
the Atlantio to the Pacifio. It is believed to be a good election card, ami
the mostmuBt be made of it. The Senate Is a wicked and useless institution,
and must bo abolished. That will
be the cry, although in tho Commons
a Government resolution is pending,
proposing n moderate amendment,
which provides for a joint vote in oer-
tain emergencies. It would not be ns
strange as it might seem if tho Senate,
after rojeoting the Redistribution
Bill, should turn around and adopt
the Government's resolution to reform
them   into good behaviour.
We would like, with all necessary
apologies, of course to point out to our
worthy namesake of RnBBland a very
serious omission in its list of BritiBh
Columbia summer resorts. In tho enjoyment of a vacation it recommends
Vanoonver and Viotoria; a word is said
Washington, July 21.���Con. Otis,
is a despatch under date of 20th says,
that the press correspondents demanded porimssion to cable that ollicial reports sent misrepresented conditions.
This wns denied. They demanded the
privilege to send without reservations
facts found by them and thoir opinion.
This was granted if public intorests
were not Imperiled. Tlio answer whs
not Batisfnctory and they therefore sent,
by mail to Hong Kong. Goucral Otis
says he is not consoious ot sending
misrepresentations but thinks thut his
despatches at times havo beon too conservative. The press affairs appeared
to be a threat. When the correspondents were asked to be informed wherein
General Otis despatches were misleading tbey offered nothing fungible except tbat his conclusions vere unwarranted.
In a later despatch General Otis says
that the charges marie by the nress
correspondents are untrue. He adds
that most haimonious relations exist
between the army and navy. He
gives the following extract from a
letter just reoeived from a leading
Filipino at Tarlac, which is the head
quarters of the main   insurgent army.
"For some days I havo been trying
to leave this band of thieves. I am
watched so closely it impossible to
leave. A great many of the people bore
long for American troopB to advance
for everyone is desperate with jo much
savagery committed by Aguinaldo's
army."
Cantain Barker, of the navy who
succeeded Admiral Dewey in command of tho fleet, in sending a report
of the Commander of the Yorktown to
the Navy Department makes this endorsement: "I am pleased to note the
cordial co-operation of army and
navy." As bearing upon tbo statements that the operation of tho navy
had beeu minimized it may be stated
that General Otis has repeatedly recognized the work of tho navy, as, for
example, in hiB despatch of Juno 5
last, in which he sayB, "The navy
aided greatly ou shore of the bay landing forcesjoccasionally. And again, under date of July!): "The army aud
navy are in hearty accord and the best
of feeling prevails.''
