Mr. Frew who introduced The Miner's retresentsttve remarked jocularly
that ho was a Roman Ontbollo. The
Doctor at once rose to tbo occasion.
"Tie Roman Catholic priests live
done "iid rue doing a great work amn. g
the Indians iu the Notth West," hi
Bald.
He then proceeded to explain that
bis mission was with while men only.
His iphere of work comprised the
whole of thu Presbyterian missions
west of Like Superior, uud over these
lie exercised a sway equivalent to that
of n Bishop in Episcopal denominations, Nelson was not a mission town
hat contained a fell supporting church
therefore bis visit here was only one
of pleasure. And a gri nt ] leasure it
wns too,to him to see thnt town which
when he last saw it, eight years ago,
wns iu its infancy. Tbo growth he
cow witnessed was far beyond bis ix-
ueotationa though when be litBt oaine
here he prophesied Hint the town wus
bound to be the wholesale centre of
this dislrmt. Tl.o doctor was of opinion that the town should be the central strategic piint from whioh the
work of tho gospel would be spread
throughout the district. Dr. Robertson paid ninny compliments to the oit-
""lis of Nelson which would make
them blush wero they printed. ; but it
may be recorded that he considered
tint Nelson, lor iutelligoi.ee and (cl
tine, wai far ahead of many larger
Canadian towns.
Dr. Robertson then proceeded to give
a short disoriptlou of his missions. He
I ad been in Cnundn 45 years, 25 of
which were spent in the West. There
wero in all 204 missionaries under
linn, and koo mission stations wero
Berved, Sectarian fusion in Canada
'���mis complete, the Free, Established and
U. P. churches being all united.
Che revenue of his diocese for Ihe last
year was two and n half million dollars, As much as $41)11.000 was raised
only last yoar by subscriptions for tbe
missions.
Or, Robertson's missionaries worn
the pioneers of religious denominations
m Nelson, Rossland, Trail, Green
wood, Grand Forks and Columbia.
Again they wem lirRt in all the different
POinln on the Crow's Nest Pass nud
Kobson- Pentioton lines. The Klondike wus a special field for Presbyter-
tau missionary enterprise, A tl In (where
nurses had nlso been sent), Cariboo,
Wuesuellot, Horse Ely, Hurkerville,
IU)d IJlllooet had their missions.
tbo present mutual expenriitnre on
missions in British Columbia was 817,-
nnn and in the Klondike, $0,000.
oervioes in eight different languages
are held in some ot Dr. Robertsons
mission chapels. He has Gallician,
Swedish, Gaelic, Hungarian, Finn,
German, Czech and Icelandic etudmts
at his mission college.
Tho form of service adopted is entirely nnseotarian in order that, no
matter what   the   creed of the listener
wotk, and    hoped, tbat, Ihe whole coil-
, gregntlUll might by their endeavors
���upporr, a  missionary nf  thf.ir  own.
(The    dilli initios  onnneotel   with   the
|   prosecution of tho work   w��ia  pointed
.int. such as tbe exit nt   of the oountry,
the  diversity of languages and   religi-
: .ins belief, the lack   of   suitable   mis-
j Hioni.ries and the inadequate revenue.
It was pointed   out   that B  C.    alone
i was three times tbe size of Great Britain and   Ireland, and   that the prhirio
i had tin area at least 13 times as largo
as all of   Ontario   between the Ottawa
I and Dehoit rivers and   between North
Bnv  and Lake Ontario,   The polyglot
j chiir'icier nf the population was shown
from the fact that ihe children in Iho
Winnipeg   BOllO'ls   spoke   17   different
j biiignnges, and iho laws of the North
West Territories bad tube translated
in'o l!l different languages to be under-
' stood,    Tbo ohnroh was conducting re-
Addrecs Hgions Bervi?es  in   eight   languages,
and, more   means at ber  disposal, the
sut  of number would   be  speedily increased.
I Missionaries  of tho  right   kind  weie
[difficult to secure, Men of spirituality, of mental ability, of preaching
power, of force and aggressiveness, of
inot and perseverance wore required,
and too often ihey were not available.
Means, adequate men us, were not
forthcoming. It would seem as if people of black, yellow or brown skins
awakened ihe sympathy of the women
nf the ohnroh far more than people of
v bite skins like bis audience To con-
f lie attention so exclusively to alien
noes In the neglect of the Celt and
Snxiiit wus scarcely good religion and
it wus worse patriotism,
Tbo enco lr.igo.limits of tho work
wre tunny. Western Canada was cap
aide of supporting a vast population���
twenty-live millions or perhaps fifty.
'IU lay the foundations for suoh a people is un inspiiation, au exceptional
privilege. Tbe country bus vast and
varied resources. The lish catch of B.
O.  last   year was   wmth   nt   least   six
millions, iho mineral output well-nigh
fifteen not to speak nf the IS or 20
millions secured from the Yukon, Two
ypi n ago 3A0,OQ0 Manitoba farmers
ra s I 80 million bushels nf wheat and
an ��� 11iiti 1 number of oft or grains, or an
avnriiga of 24.000 each. The cattle
ihi iments were sweb ng every year.
In,gallon was reclaiming the arid
disliiets. and nme showed thnt win at,
stipe.i ir wheat could bo raised in I e
valley of >h i Peace river. The min.ral,
and coal wealth (,f B. O. made it the
richest Pr ivtnee in the Dominion.
The 400 FOjnnre miles of coal in the
neighborhood of Fertile were estimated Hi contain 20,000 .nillions of tous of
ooal cr 5 millions to the sip are   mile.
Tho people wero ot the growing not
the dying races of the world. Tho
mixture of so many races was snro to
produce B superior 'blend', and hence
the work was sure to havo a fnturo
Savage races began to din as soon as
the white man touched their shores, a��
the Amerioan Indian, the Maori, the
natives of tbe Now Hebrides, otc.^
whereas the Anglo-Saxon was mnVi-
plving and filling the whole rnrth.
Tbe progress of the work was dealt on.
In 1881, when Di Robertson became
superintendent, thero were two congregations ��est of Lake Supeiu r, now
115; then, 2H missions, now 204; then
110 Drenching stations now 10.1100; then
1,110 members, now 35,000; then the
revenue was $13,000 and last year $5120,
000.
Tbo speaker dwelt on the duly of
dealing Willi this work. ReliRion had
much to do with the prosperity nnd
perpetuity of the nation Tbo rleoline
nf Rome dated front the lack of faith
in the Gods and the decay of family
religion Save Canada from this danger and leave for tho ponplo in tho homes
in which thoy aro reared and when
thev drift into cities nnd towns they
will likely bo obedient to the faith.
S<mls wero worth saving ; for thorn
Christ, died and men should seek to
realize Christ's purposn. No church
could grow, nor did it deserve to grow,
nolo s it pushed to the frontier and
did us part for men's salvation. Tho
superintendent pointed ont thnt along
the Crow's Nest Pass Railway, in the
Boundary Creek riisirior. Kettle River
conntrv. along the main line of the
O, P. R on the west coast of Vancouver Island, in the Yukon, in Alaska
fiom Edmonton to the Boundary, the
Piesbyterian church led the way and
tbo, people were grateful for it. In
conclusion the speaker asked the
prayers of the congregation for the work
and tho workers, commended Home
Missions to their generous support,
and assured tbem of Cod's blessing in
oaring for tboso for whom Christ died,
Tboro wore 120,000 English-speak-
lug people without Christian services
west of Duke Superior not to speak of
tons of thousands of foreigners, and
these should be evangelized and assimilated else tboro would be a sad
'reckoning in ooming years.

was to have been tbe final one for the
Seawanhaka Clip between tbu American challenger. Constance, aud the
Canadian defender Giencairn,has turned our, roost unsatisfactorily, for Skipper Duggan had to sail his boat over
tho course alone whilo Mr. C.ane of
tho Constance, after protesting the
race through having takeu ground with
her center hoard in manoeuvring for
the staring line, had tho Constance
nrought down from the oonrsn off Point
Claire to the St. Lawrence Vncht Club
honse at Dorval. There was a fresh
south west breeze all the morning
which increased now and again in
pnffs, hut later in the day, when the
hour for the start arrived at 1 :?5, tbe
breeze wi'S only a very moderate one
and bad shifted more to the south so
that in order to get a beat straight to
windward the buoys had to be changed.
The wind kept shifting all the time
and continued to moderate; in fact it
wns regular Gloucairn wnather and in
changing the buoy it was found tbat
each leg wonld have to be reduced to
one and a half miles making the course
four times round to complete the
twelve miles. After considerable trouble of tbis kind and the bouys bad
boon changed three times, the starting
whistle blew at 11:05 and tbe waiting
spectators now anxionslv looked for a
race. Gleneairn crossed the line at
11:05.15 but Constance did not cross,
having struck the grouud while man-
ouvreiug for tho start as above   staged.
Thou followed Mr. Crane's verbal
protest bnt the officials decided to
continue the race nnd deal with the
protest n'ler va di. By this time Glen-
ci irn wns oil up the first leg and a
small yacht was sent to inform her to
complete the course, overhauling tbe
Camn.iau defender as she was abont
rounding the buoy. Giencairn accordingly proceeded and with the moderate
wind which was blowing finished the
twelve miles at 6:26.15. This made
the elapse time UO minutes, 22 seconds
so that she \ya i well within the five
hour time limit.
The official sailing committee has
given out the following statement:
Tbe conrse was set southwest by south
Irom Upper Dorval Light, two miles
to windward. On the return of th��
committee's boat Mr. Crane protested
that the course was not due to windward, the wind having by this time

to accompany the members of the sailing committee in resetting. On its being found that the course was slightly
snort of the mile and a half, a verbal
protest was made by the Seawanhaka
representative, the second protest be-
iug entered on acoount of shoalwater
for mnnouvreing around to the windward buoy. The sailing committee
prnposod to rednoe the oourBe from a
mile and a half to one mile bnt a protest wus immediately entered by Mr.
Post. The comirattee therefore changed the starting line closer into Point
Clairo and pr. ceeded to log the conrse

A QUESTION OP UvTERHbT
Mr. Crease's letter, poblisbd yesttr
day, is being made tbe subject of favorable co ent en ail sides, it directs attention to a matter in which
the citizens of Nelson aro bound to
take an interest. There is immense
power going to waste at lionningtoii
Falls.only fourteen utile-ijllslaiit ; why
not provide f r the transmission cf a
portion of it ample for the industrial
wants of the large population wo nil
hope to see centred in this City befoie
many years'- We aro already a railway centre and a commercial centre;
u manufacturing eentro will bo established some where iu Southern British Columbia, and the same natural
advantages that bave stood us ill such
good stead heretofore are present in
tbis case ns well. Nelson sprang from
a mine; its central situation was soon
recognised, and it grew on what it
distributed ; to give a finish to iis progress it must become tbe seat of manufactures, aud to secure Ibis it is necessary lhat thero should be abundant and
cheap motive power. That can be obtained at Bnnnington Falls, and Mr.
Crease's letter was intended to show
the importance of fastening attention
on this fact and acting on the inspiration of it.
That is   certain to servo a good  purpose,   for   something   practical   must
come of it.    Already it has  discovered
to ns that action baB been taken in the
direction inchoated, although   unfortunately nothing   substantial has yet resulted.    Tbat,   however,   is   not    the
fault of Nelson.  As long ago as February last, the Council dispatched the City
Engineer to stake a claim to some control of the power at Bonniiigton Falls.
But   not   many steps   had been   taken
betorer it was ascertained   that  under
the   Act   municipalities could not acquire proprietary   rights for industrial
purposes; tho  water we could havo for
domestic   ubo. bnt we could not transform it into electric   power  for transmission to the Oity.    When   an   effort
was made to obtain   an amendment  to
the   Act   the   Oitv   authorities   were
met  with   opposition   from the Attorney-General���now happily dismissed���
who said ho coul.l   not permit municipalities to obtain greater   rights   than
were   accordod   to    individuals.    Tbe
truth wus the City   was only applying
to be put on a footing of equality with
individuals,   who were ompoweed   by
the Act   to obtain rights   covering   all
purposes, industrial or domestic.    The
amendment was   not   submitted to tne
Legislature,and so nothing came of the
move of tho Council.
It is not intended, however, to let it
rest at that. It is important to Nelson to avail itself of u portion of the
waste power of Bonniiigton Falls, and
another effort will be made to obtain
an amendment to  thb Act which will
permit, municipalities to acquire proprietary rights for all usoful purposes.
Mr. Martin may still be in the Legislature, but he has no longer the inllu-
enco of a Minister, and the proposed
amendment has the obance at least of
being introduced. It is believed ulso
that it will carry. Municipalities
Should be given ovory encouragement
possible to promote industrial enterprises of all sorts. The tendency of the
day is to municipal ownership of
franchises, and if only iu practical ro-
oognitiou of this principle it is thought
tho Legislature will relax the existing restrictions. Thero is no reason
why Nelson should not obtain electric
power from Bouniugcou Falls; there
are many good reasons why it should.
Tho present Mayor and Aldermen
are strongly of this opinion, aud in
their resolve to prosecute the matter
further tbey are deserving tho support
of citizens generally. That their immediate purpose at tbo time was only
to obtain an eleotrio supply as au BOX.
iliary to the local service does not
attest tho quest ion of municipal control. This is tho primary and most
essential requisite of tho situation,
and ouco secured the Ci'y will then bo
free to tako up the larger enterprise
suggested in Mr. Crease's letter.
Montreal, between small vacbts of'
Canada and the United Btnlffl for i os-f
s��ssion of the Seawanhaka Cup, have
ended unsatisfactorily ond have been
the mean:) of engendering considerable ill feeling between Iho yachtsmen
of tho two countries. Last, year the
Americans objected In tie peculiar
construction of the Canadian yacht,
Dominion, which was built on the dou
ble hull principle but which was not
contrary to the rules governing tbe
race. No protest was lodged, however, until the American Mtchf had
boen badly riefeiiten. Then it wns discovered that tbe Onnsdlnn boat wi s
not built according to I'ovl". A large
ball was held in honor of tlie \isiiin :

oil himself, making a rhildish exhibition for whion lint Ullitrd Sla'is pa

Again it ends un'ntbfa torily and
front our dispatches' ri garding yesterday's race it appears tbat the Ameii-
cans have again shown themselves to
be poor sportsmen and very bad loosers.
To object so strongly to tbe course over
which both boats had lo sail and then
to offer as nn excuse for uot crossing
the line, that fhe centreboard bad
struck bottom gives the whole proceedings tbo appearance of a bad case of
funk. It is unfortunate that int.r-
natioiial Bports cannot be conducted in
n more agreeable nrmner and until
thoy can they should be discontinued.
Oue thing can now be counted on
as a certainty, and that is that the
Royal St. Lawrence Yacht Club will
return tbe Seawanhaka Cup aud refuse to havo further contests for it.
The next opportunity for the yachtsmen of tbe two nations to iiuarrel will
be next month when Shamrock |and
Columbia sail for the America 's Cup.

army. His father before him was
eminent as a band leadfr; his brother,
Oharles Godfrey, is bandmaster of
the "Blues" ; bis two sons, Fred Godfrey and Dnn Godfrey, Jr., are both
leaders of famous military bands,
whilst Dan Godfery himself for forty
years conducted the baud of Her Majesty's Grenadier Guards.
At Ihe state drawing rooms at Buckingham Palace, the levees at Mnrlbnr-
on;h House, at royal weddings, the
Lord Mayors processions, and at the
great historic events happening
throughout Ihe gret.b r period of tho
Qneen's reign, Godfrey's music has
been a proiniin nt feature. For his services to military music in the British
army Dan Godfrey was raised to the
rank of Lieutenant of the Guards, a
distinction never before or since o n-
ferrod upon nny other bandmaster. At

I prosperity and wealth,
Rossland imports tor Jnly wero if4H,

I Forest, Out.) Frre Press: "The Free

illustrations are tine photogravures, illustrating the rise of Nelson in IU
years, from a few shacks in a wilderness of rocks,   and without  boom ton
| beautiful place of city dimensions.    To I
the miner this fine  production will be 1
of great   interest. It shows the advan- I
tages and the wonderful prngiess made
in  Kootenay in   the  development    of
our mining industry.
Says the Rossland Hecord. "Nel.
son is to huvo an electric street rail-
road. Why not Rossland? It would be
n profitnblo investment if snitnhle arrangements could bo made with'he
West Koitenny Power and Light company lor power. A line from the city
to the Le Koi and War Englo mines
would bo of great convenience and n
good investment. Who will take the
lead in the matter?" There,there.dnn't

Miner nre to be congratulated on Iho
, 12-page supplement which they re-

Nothing more is needed to show forth

Tlie average shipment of ore from
tl.e Silver King mine to the Hall Mines
smelter (luring the last week has heen
SCO tons per day.
The Dull Mine- Limited, arc considering the advisability of erecting a
new leud stack ut Ihe smeller
If the project is carried nut. whioh
in all probability it will be before
very long) it will give an impetus to
the lead mining industry in Kootenay.
Haiiinnind Bros., pink train of Sun-1
don, has beeu engaged to move ihe balance of the nre lying saoked at Iho
fcmtnce mine, at the head of Mohawk
creek, and work will be resumed by |
llecr Bns , nf Nolspii. A shipment of
HO tons of ore taken cut last winter
whs made about I" (lays ugn. It is expected thnt as scon us Iho property is
put in shape for development it will
become a steady shipper as it is known
to lie one of the heat in the Lardeau.
���:,    s   *
Tliis is the way Iho Hi ssland Miner
sizes np the situation : "The hue summer weather thai is prevailing all over
the country has induced many of the
eastern visitors to extend their trips
and prolong their stay iu the Proviuce.
The Kootenays- and the Boundary country are full of eastern people and nil
the better known mining ccnlies are
receiving their full share of attention.
Beyond the fact that contract work as
such bus received a sudden stop in the
Slocan there is but little change in Ihe
labor situation as far us can be ascertained. There are many reports current as to certain properties opening
up and as to the working of others by
imported labor, but as a matter of fact
the mine owners and the men are simply waiting for a possible change mid
iu the moan time no particular action
is being taken.
A letter from Slocan City conveys
the following interesting information :
Captain Morrish was here last week
looking after the Exchange group. It
is the intention to resume work en this
property soon.
The Evening Star, on Day ton creek,
is again closed down. As scon ns tl.e
labor question is adjusted work will be
resumed with a larger force, as Mr.
Hose bus orders to run 1,000-foot '.ross-
ont tunnel lo tap the ledge from the
level of the creek and also to build a
Wagon load from tbe mine down to the
Springer creek road. D. A. Ross, the
superintendent, leaves iu a few days
for Toronto and Montreal to consult
with Hugh Sutherland, nnd expects to
return in six weeks.
Messrs. J. D. and (i. Kendall are
registered nt the Arlington Hotel hero.
They arrived last week and have been
out to examine and report on the Kilo
claim on the first north fork of Lemon
creek for thu London aud R. 0. Cold
Fields company. The ledge on thu
Kilo runs about $100 in gold p.^r ton
As it was on the strength of Mr. Kendall's report that his company took
over the enterprise mine, his presence
here now shows that this large English
company intend to farther interest
themselves in ihis very promising division of the Slocan, and that the Enterprise deal was only the commencement of their operations here.
.1. Oran, lately manager of the Bunk
of B. N. A. at Dawson, nnd formerly of the branch here, paid i short
visit last week. He speaks very favorably of Dawson,and tells of several old
Slocan City bays who are becoming
lich in tbat country.
Messrs. Beer and Hammond of Nelson, have secured an option from local
men ou 7,(100 aoros of timber on
Evans creeu, near here, and have had
it surveyed aud intend organizing a
large company to manufacture it into
lninbor. This timber is some of Ilia
best to be had anywhere in the Kootenay.
McMillan's pack train is packing
ore down from tho Ohaplean, an I Allen's pack train will start work in a
few days bringing down ore from the
Black Prince. Both pack trains aie
kept busy, and it is diffloult to obtain
horses at times. McMillan and Allen
are each bringing in more horses from
outside to supply the demand.
More work is being done on tbe
creeks in this division than at any
time heretofore, aud the great richness
of tbe country is being brought to
light daily. Experts aie coming in
iinite regularly, aud there is hardly n
day passes without its quota.
The crosscut tunnel on the (oitiuenu
