Ou the motion of Aid McKiilop the
selection of a tender wns referred to
the Hoard of Works committee.
The Mayor mentioned that he had
received a number of tenders for the
new Citv Debentures,$60,000; he would
decide which one to accept some time
today.
The matter of tho printing tenders
came up. The City Clerk explained
that when bo wrote and asked The
Miner for a tender ho had omitted to
state within what tune thoy bad to bo
sent iu. He also read a lotter received
from Jehu Houston stating that if the I Viotoria and
tenders were to be reconsidered the | seuted. The
Tribune's tender would be with
drawn. Aid. Hillyer criticised
City Clerk's conduct nnd said that
mistakes and trouble hud continually
arisen with regard to tenders. The
City Clerk denied that any previous
mistakes had been due to him. Aid.
Fletober wanted to know if the Tribune hnd been notified of the acceptance of their teuder. The City Clerk
said that no notice had been sent because The Minor's representative had
pointed out his error to him and he
had consulted the Mayor who desired
to refer the matter again to the Coun
THE BOARD OF WORKS
At tho close of the meeting of the
City Oonnoil the Hoard of Works Committee met to decide on tho contract
for tho water works pipo. The lowest
tender for cast irou pipe was that of
Gartshore, Thomson ifc Co. For the
amount required the cost of this pipo,
as estimated by tho City Engineer,
would figure  out as follows:
Pipe, $32,878; lead for joints. $081;
teaming, $1,BOO; treuohing and laying. $8,485,    Total cost, 28,78!).
The lowest tender for steel pipe was
that, of Armstong ifc Morrison. The
cost of this would work out as follows:
Pipe, $17,838; lead for joints, $082;
teaming, $285jOOStof trenching and
laying, $:)2()l).    Total cost, $211!):!.
A long discussion followed as to tho
relative values of steel and iron pipe.
Tho committee conferred with Mr.
Frank Peters as to whether it would
be possible to arrange for a reduced
freight rato on the iron pipe. Eveu
theu it was feared that tbe price would
be to high. The difference of over $7,-
000 in price seemed to sway with tlio
aldermen as it was questionable
whether tho City could all'ord that ex-
tin sum.
Tho City Engineer and Aid. Thomson, who had inspected specimens of
the steel pipe, were in favor of that bo
ing pnrohased, Then came tbe question of delivery. The City Engineer
said that tne first car load should be
shipped not later than September 1,
and the last uot later than October 1.
It was finally resolvod to telegraph
Armstrong & Morrison in order to ascertain whether they would take tbo
OontiMOt or. '.im?'. t.-rins, with a penalty of $50 a (lay for non-del ivory ns per-
uoutract. On tho motion of Aid.
Thomson it was resolved that tenders
be called fur for the hiving down of a
sewer pipe from Ward street to Hon
dryx street on the lane between Car-
b.inato street and Mill street.
Tho cemmittee recommended that
Baker street be graded from Hendryx
street to Cedar street; nlso that a
road lie made along Cedar street from
Baker street to Silicn street, the cost
of the same not to exceed $200.

The inhabitants continue absolutely
indifferent to the presence of Dreyfus.
Barely half a dozen persons witnessed the visits of counsel and Mndame
Dreyfus to the prison today. The

Dreyfus paid his first visit to his brother at il p. m. The interview lasted
halt an hour. Mathieu found his
brother broken in health, but not tbe

mad. Some of the Aldermen seemed
to think the tenders figured out exactly
the same. The Miner offered to print
100 copies for $1.70 por page and 50 additional copies for 40 oents per page
and 1,200 tax notices for $5.50.
Aid Fletcher saw no reason for reconsidering the tenders! the original
motion giving tho contract to the Tribune ought to stand.
The Miner's representative explained to the Council thnt the manager of
that journal had not expressed any
great desire to do the work; be only
wished both tenders to be considered
and no undue preference shown to any
particular journal.
However on the motion of Aid.
Fletcher it was resolved that tho Miner's tender be filed and tbnt the motion, enrried Inst meeting, nwnrding

mentioning Gnudin, who, though rowing under Thames colors, hopes to
enrry off the Diamond Sculls lor

Rowing Olub of Toronto hnvo already
made many frisnds here, and wiU
make a bid for the Grand aud Stewards Ohallonge Cups, though their ab-
senco of body swing makes English
critics sbnke their hends. Close observers point out the important fact
thnt thoir long slide makes their stroke
look much shorter than it is.
The Dutch crew from Doltt arrived
today and will meet the Canadians in
the first heat for the Grand. The Hamburgers also continue to attract muoh
attention. Most of the English crews
are well up to Henley form though
none are of extraordinary merit. The

been the one desire   of The   Miner���to
keep it quite   up   to  tbe reputation of

and progressivene��s.
A     large   edition   has    been    published,   but from   the  orders already
received we deem it well to advise all who desire copies that it is
not nnlkely soon to be exhausted.
We think it can be claimed with absolute positiveness that tnrough tbe distribution it will receive, Nelson and
district will be more widely and more
favorably advertised than they ever
were before. Tbat is tbe recompense
the publishers of The Miner were anx
cu3 to make in return for the patron
age so generously extended them.
We have just received a Complete Assortment
of VEILINGS in the latest spots and meshes. As
these goods have all been manufactured  in  Austria,
sure for   those   who
ot inspected this department during  the past
week.
Some splendid values can be had for 25 cents,
but the women are all loud in proclaiming that our
75 cent Veiling is simply immense. We have them
in Black, White, Gray, Brown, Green, Serece, and
a White with Colored Spots.

Tie newspaper reports of the debate
on Sir Hibbert Tupper'? second arraignment of the Government's adminis-;
tration of the Yukon have been re-
c?ived. There were specific charges,
many of them, against rot only officials
of tbe Department but the Department
itself,made On the bon.gentleman's re- '���
sponsibility as a member. He asked for
a commission of Judges with full power
to go into all the matters involved in the
charges, declaring his willingness to :
resign bis seat in Parliament and to
forfeit all honors and appointments
under the Crown if he failed to establish them. The commission was re-
fused. It is hardly necessary to go into ;
the reasons, which we have no
doubt will prove profoundly disap-
pointing to the country. An investigation might have been certain death
to the Government, for no one douDts
the rottenness and corruption have'
been enormous; but to refuse it seems
even a more certain road to destruction
tban the investigation itself. The best

that today they stand discredited in

Ottawa dispatches in Saturday's eastern exchanges say the supplementary
estimates lor the fiscal year were voted
on Friday night. The news service
supplied to Kootenay papers carefully exclude any reference to this matter, although in Nelson there is much
anxiety,not to say impatience, to know
if a certain appropriation had been
recommended. As there is no intimation of it, however, the conclusion is
tbat the Government hare ignored the
request of the people for the decent
housing of the various public services
in this City. There is also a supplementary conclusion, to the effect that
the mechanics in Saywaid's factory
could manufacture out of a cedar log
as useful a representative as Mr. Bos-
tock.

Au Attraction nt the Opera House That
Promises to Be Enjoyable
The Nix Family appears at the
Opera House this livening iu oue of
their concerts which seoni to have
pleased largo audiencos during the
present trip. Tho Calgary Herald last
month referred to them as follows:
Tho Nix l-'auiily Comedy Company
played in the Masonic Hull,Wednesday
and Thursday uights, to crowded
houses. The entertainment opened
with nu overture which was executed
in fine style, Miss Ada Nix at the
piano, Mr, Nix violin, and Miss Mo
Henry the cornet. Master Bert Nix
next sang a song in costume, eu
titled the "Jolly Old Miller." His
makeup was excellent and be received
loud applause. Miss Ada Nix, who
has a rich soprano voice, treated the
audience to a well known song "Green
Fields of Virginia." She snug with
pathos and effeot. Then followed an
exhibition of club exercise bv Master
and Miss Kix.. Master Frank Nix
gave the well known comic song "Just
one Girl," which brought down the
house. After a cornet quartette the
whole oompany gave an exhibition of
Ihe bells. The performance wns most
creditable.
ACCIDENT ON THE  0.  P. li.
POLICE COURT NEWS.
At the police court yesterday A.
Muuro was charge;! by J. G. Irving
with tho theft, of a coat and pair of
trousers. Tho theft was alleged to havo
boon committed in August of last year,
hut at that time nothing was known
as to the person who took them. During the Dominion Day celebration Irving noticed Muuro wearing tlio coat,
and promptly had him apprehended,
Muuro stated in defenoe that he had
bought the coat and waistcoat from a
man named Mnrdook. Tho caso was
remanded until today.
LOCAL  AWD PERSONAL
An aeoident, which happily was uot
attended with auy serious oonse-
qnenoes, happened ou the 0. .PR. last
Jigbt. Tho train from Robson, timed
to arrive hero at 7 :35 p.m., was rounding a bluff, about two miles from the
e'e'son depot when the engine and
front baggngo enr jumped the track.
A passenger who wns on the cars informed tho Miner's ropresentntive that
the train was runniug very slow at
tho time of the oecureuce, tbo track
tbere having been but recently relaid.
The Miner's informant had been ac-
custjnied to "track jumping" and did
not feel tho least couoern though one
or two passengers seemed a little disturbed. A greater speed might have
ne ant a disaster. As it. was only the
track suffered. A car was sent out to
fetch in tho passengers who arrived
shortly after 8 p.m. At a lute hour
last night the erring train was still in
the same place.
Victoria street is being graded from
Stanley to Josephine streets.
Mrs. Charles D. J. Christie left last
evening on a visit to friends in Bruu-
don aud Winuipeg.
ftfrs. J. J. Walker left yesterday i'or
a throe months visit to her former
homo iu Winnipeg.
Tho water of the lake isbcginuing'to
sink quite rapidly having gone dowu
several inches in   the past tJvo dayB.
The school trustees went ovor the
pnblio school building yesterday in
order ro see what had to be done by
way of improvements.
The grading on Ward street from Baker to Victoria has practically been
completed and a good deal of traffio is
passing over this street already.
The Council of Hie Board ot
of Trade meets this evening to further
discuss tho questions to como up at
the Rossland gathering on August 3.
During fie months of July and August, the legal Doug Vucntiou, tho Nelson Registry oflice will be open from
10 n. m. to 3 p. m. exjopt on Snturday
when tho  ollico will closo nt 1 p. m.
The Iirst meeting of tho company of
the Church Lady's Brigade to be formed in oonneotion with St. Saviour's
church Sunday school will be hold in
ihe Mission Hall tomorrow evening
at T p. in. sharp.
The fact that the Lyceum Company
will play at tho Opera House next
Saturday evening in aid of tho building fund of the Kootenay Lake General
llosnital will undoubtedly draw a very
large house. The company is excellent
and the object worthy.
Yesterday was tbe "Glorious
Fourth" and some enthusiastic Americans found outlet for tbeir exuberance
of patriotism through tbe medium of
lire crackers Inst night. During the
