Great Feature of the
Carnival.
Many Organizations to  Be
in  Line���List  of
Prizes.
Vancouver   Crew    Arrives.
Committee News���Other
Happenings.
Because of the great amount of
prosperity Nelson merchants are now
enjoying it is not expected there will
he us many flouts iu the trades procession on Monday morning as was at
first expected. The procession, however, will probably be the largest in
point of length ever seen in the
Kootenays. Nearly all the labor unions will be out with large banners
aud budges and several societies will
also lie in line. The wholesalers and
their travelling salesmen will add
much to the attractiveness of the parade and two, or possibly three, bands
will provide the music.
The prizes for the floats, etc., in
the procession will be as follows:
Industrial Flouts: First prize, 875;
nre,n,i prize, 830.
Children's Float: First prize. 815.
best Turn-out of any Union or
Society: First prize, value IK; second
prize, valw. 815.
Most Original and Grotesque turnout: Firat prize, 815-
For tlie Finest Appearing Team of
Horses in the Procession, attached to
float or otherwise: First prize, 810;
second prize, 85.
Arrangements have been made
whereby both the t'ity and Municipal
bands will play during the two days
of the carnival. In tlie Trades Procession the Salvation Army baud will
also play.
The order of the line for the Trades'
Procession and the place of formation
will be announced in the Miner tomorrow morning.
Paris. The tower will be about 100
feet high and will be outlined in
colored lanterns and surmounted by a
huge moon and star.  The method   of
construction is a secret with the committee so far but from all accountB It
will be something to marvel at.
BOAT RACES. TO DAY.
This afternoon, at half past three
o'clock, the prellmary heats in the
local four oared race will occur. Tlie
course has been laid out and the
crews will start at a point one mile
up the lake and finish in front of the
boat house wharf. The first heat will
be rowed between the two following
crews: No. 1.���Hyslop, stroke; Clark,
3: l'lerey, 2; Fairwell, bow. No. 2.--
\V inter, stroke; llickling, :i; Itevan, ";
Curtis, bow. As soon as these two
crews have finished unother heat will
rowed between the third and fourth
crews ns follows: No. 3.---Eord,stroke;
McRae, 3; Wetmore, 2: Uervey, bow.
No. 4. is a crew to be stroked hy
Procter, whose make-up is not known
as the crew will be brought down from
Balfour. Nothing definite was known
yesterday as to whether they would
show up today. If they do not No. 3
crew will probably hold a bye until
Monday.
On Monday the Hudson Hay and
Killc Company crews will row the
winners in today'shcats.
The following gentlemen will act
as officers of the course at the heuts
today.
Judges at finish: Mr. J. S. Fraser,
manager of the Kossland branch of the
Hank of Montreal, and T. U. Proctor;
starter, Herbert II. Playford.
The Vancouver crew reached Nelson
at 6:45 last night. The crew is composed of Messrs. F. II. Spriuger. C. II.
Woranop, H. E. Springer and It. I).
Seott. Mr. K. P. Woodward came as
manager of the crew. The men arc a
licnlibv looking quartette and are
somewhat heavier than the Winnipeg
crew. They bring with them a cedar
shell, one of the best on the Coast,
and are prepared to give tbe Winni-
peggers a good race. Upon their arrival here they went at once to the
Hume Hotel, where they had dinner,
and afterward they rigged up their
boat and went for a short spin over
the course. The Springer crew, as
the crew is known, Is one of the fastest crews on the Pacific Coast. It was
nip und tuck between them and the
Alexander crew aH to which should
represent Vancouver at Portland in
the contest for the championship of
the Pacific Coast, the Alexander crew
winning by a narrow margin. As the
Winnipeg crew here is the fastest In
the Prairie Province, the race will
tend to settle the question us to whether the Coast oarsmen or the Winnipeg
Nin. ii are rowing the fastest.
Manager Hume bus the Vancouver
colors, red and white, Hying from big
flagstaff and the Hume Hotel guests
are enthusiastic Vancbuveritcs. At
the Phair Hotel the Wlnnipeggers are
the favorites, and if the guests of the
two hotels get together some big wagers are liable to be made.
The Carnival Committee has given
permission to one of the local caterers
to fit out a refreshment boat. Hale's
scow'wlll be used for the purpose and
will be moored for the two days near
the end of the ice house wharf.
The Water Carnival Committee Is
still busy arranging surprises for the
spectators on Tuesday night. The
latest Idea is a reproduction on the
Jake ol the  famous Eiffel Tower at
ST. JOSEPH'S SCHOOLS.
______ , i
The Institute Closes, After a Successful First Term, for the Holidays.
St. Joseph's Schools, which were opened by the Sisters a few months ago,
bid fair to hold their popularity in
Nelson on account of the substantial
knowledge which is there imparted
and the evident progress made by the
children already udinitted.
The Institute is now affiliated with
the University of Cambridge and pupils desiring to graduate through that
College are prepared for examination
held annually in December. Application for entrance to these examinations should lie made to the Sisters
early in September so as to allow them
ample time to communicate with the
secretary In London. It is hoped tho
new building shall be complete when
the children return after the Summer
holidays, and the Slstera will then be
able to accommodate a large number
of girls. Accommodation is also made
for a limited number of little boys up
to the age of ten so as to convenience
parents living out ot the city.
The new schools shall rest on a
stonework foundation witb wood
frame, measure 8(1x51) feet and stand
four stories high. The plans are In
the hands of the architect, Mr. Curtis,
through whom a complete description
of the building shall be given later.
The schools are under the direct
management of the Sisters, who huve
had wide experience in educating and
training children from the tenduregt
years upward and hold certificates
from the Education Department of
London.
Charles Plowman, representative of
an Anglo-French Syndicate of London, Eng., who has just returned
from a three dayls visit to the
Fletcher Group which is situated
three miles from the Whitewater,
brings good reports from that property. While there he secured several
specimens of the ore and has bad them
assayed. The ore which was taken
from the surface run 857. (10 in all.
The assays from 12 pieces of ore taken
from the length of three claims gave
an average of-827, besides good values,
as high as 3 per cent, in copper. The
gold value was nil per cent. The ledge
averages four feet while the pay streak
is two ami one-half wide. Mr. Plowman has secured the option of the
property with a bond of 830,000. He
left last evening for London, Eng.,
where he will report to the members
of the syndicate. He will return Immediately on the decision of the.
directors, as to what actions will be
taken concerning development work
on the property. Tlie great feature
about the property are the excellent
facilities for mining, transportation,
water, and other things necessary to
make It a good mining situation.

D.  J.   BEATON,   Editor and   Manager
��� A WEAK DEFENCE.
The Hon. Thos. It, Melnnes, who
wus Lieutenant-Governor of the Province a few days ago, has written a
long letter addressed to the public and
published in the Vancouver World, intended to serve as liis defence against
the many things charged against him
during the past two years. Much of
the Communication is composed of
letters which passed between himself
and the authorities at Ottawa. We
are unable to find anything strong to
excuse or justify his extraordinary
exercise of power. He is perfectly
sure of Mb ground in dismissing the
Semlin Government and calling in
Mr. Martin, and this is what he says:
"I defy any member ofthe Dominion
Qovernment or any one else to point
to a single act of mine  iu   connection
V.. _ _._.��__ ��^l ...   ........   ... ,.*.....
with the dismissal of the Semlin Gov
eminent and the formation of the
Martin Government, and up to the
very day of my dismissal, that cannot be upheld and justified by precedents established by Liberals themselves from the time of I'itt. tlie great
Commoner, to the present time. Upon
the defeat of the Semlin Government I
was convinced that Mr. Martin was
the man best fitted to assume control
under the circumstances as they then
existed. "
There  is   no defence    in   this.    He
might jnst as well have made himself
content to say that he chose  to   favor
Mr. Martin and that was   the   end   of
it.    His defiance  is   meaningless,   for
neither   British     Columbia   nor   any
other   Province,    nor     any     British
Colony   or possession, furnishes a precedent for hit course.    We   may waive
Mr. Semlin's   dismissal,   although   it
was an unusual stretch   of   power   to
interfere between liis Government ami
the Legislature:   but   to  pretend that
he   has  precedent for calling on   Mr.
Martin   to  form   a Cabinet   is either
evidence     of     extraordinary     assurance   or     extraordinary     ignorance.
Governors in   countries   blessed   with
responsible government, as we in British Columbia had supposed   we   were,
do not intrust men who are notoriously discredited   with such   a very   important   and   delicate   duty.    It   was
only a short time   previously that Mr.
Martin had lieen   dismissed   from  the
Cabinet under circumstances that were
not in the   least   creditable   to   him.
This Governor   Melnnes   might   have
felt deep sympathy for.  but that   did
not     alter  tbe   fact   that     his     dismissal was regarded with approval by
the country, and that he stood   in  the
House without   a   solitary   friend  or
follower.    If in such case Mr. Martin
might Ih? invited to  become   Premier,
so might anyone ;  all that was   necessary was that the person chosen should
have a friend in the Governor himself.
We expect something more than personal likes or dislikes in carrying out
the system   of   government   which  it
has lieen our choice to   adopt   in i an
ada and to secure which a little blood-
shedding became necessary in the earlier years of   the century.    Mr. Mcln-
neas may have been  "convinced'' that
Mr.. Martin was the most suitable person, but no   one else   was, and il was
Mr.  Mclnnes's business to govern himself by the opinions   of   those   others
It is possible   this   very  singular person might   have "convinced" himself
that he waa a Shah   or   something   of
that aort; but however agreeable such
convictions,    or . however    pleasantly
they tickle one's   vanity, tbey   do not
not mnke one  a   Shah   among   people
who   prefer   not   to   lie  cursed   witli
Shahs.    There is nothing in the letter
to jnstlfy tha conduct which   Mr. Melnnes is in such   baste to defend,   and
the deposed Governor has gained nothing by writing   It.    If   there   Is   nny
point to  it  at   all, it   goes   merely to
show that the writer is   rather   a vain
and   garrulous   old   gentleman,    who
mistook the functions of his ollice and
ended In   making   an   offensive   spectacle of himself.
cm1st becomes violently alarmed and
protests with all the breath at its
Command against this "interference
witli the affairs of the Province."
It declares that "Provincial an
louomy" must be maintained and
that our "Independence must be
respected," and lavs it down as a
rule absolute that we arc "quite
capable of managing our own affairs. "
This is a great pother over nothing.
It is the business of the Secretary of
Slate to give ���'instructions," when
these arc necessary, just as It is
tlie business of the Colonial Secretary
to give instructions to Ottawa, as he
docs when the occasion seems to require ii. The Independence of the
Province is ill no danger from any
instructions that may come from Ottawa. The Colonist is quite too
touchy, ami it has lived next door
neighbor to Mr. Thos. 11. Melnnes to
little purpose if it does not know that
the gentleman would have been very
much the better of some sensible
instructions every day of his life.
When in RoUen the other day Mr.
Tarte assured his dear friends that
Canada is more French today than it
was fifteen years ago, or even one year
ago. He urged them to emigrate to
Canada, if they emigrated at all, so
as to assure French supremacy, and
added: "We hope to secure a majority over the English, who are three
millions." What a great man Mr.
Tarte will be when that day conies!
But in the meantime there is danger
that those stupid English may insist
on his disappearance as a politioal
factor in this British Dominion. And
what a pity that would be!
