Montreal,   July   11.  -There   was a
meeting of the Directors uf  the Western l.uiin and Trust  Company yesterday nmi the  affairs uf  Hint company
were carefully investigated,    The au-
ilitlies' reports, compiled  by Mason of
Hamilton   and   the   Messrs.   Ross  of
Montreal,    being    submtited,   show
that while the  business  nf  the company is   not   in   lirst-eluss  condition
some of the officers are of the opinion
that by careful management they may
pull out without any great loss to the
shareholders.    As   Western   men  arc
deeply interested in tlie company there

PEAGE PROSPECTS.
Greatly Improved by the British Success at
Bethlehem.
Pretoria, .luly It),���The British suitress at llethlehem has considerably'
Improved the prospects for peace, ii Is
said. The whole of theflovernment of
President steyn. of the Orange Free
suite, has surrendered except President Steyn himself, Thu.se Free Stater
officials, who are liritisli prisoners,
have been allowed to communicate
wit Ii President Steyn fur tlie purpose
nf attempting to prove to him the use-
lessness of n continuance of tho struggle whieli can only produce bloodshed
without any counterbalancing advantages.
The collapse of the forces of General
Dewett is expected daily. The liners
hero say that the men have taken a
solemn oath never to personally surrender, bul thai ihey are beginning
to see the unfairness of sacrificing
life to personal wishes, It Is expected
that when Ueneral Botha learns of
tho decision of liis colleagues that he
will gladly enter into conferences
limiting to the establishment of peace.
Tin need of more civil adminstrators
is urgent ami the necessity itn- their
appointment is becoming daily mure
apparent, Intelligent adminstrators
with a knowlcdgeof the people could
undoubtedly greatly aid iu the future
settlement of difficulties, in as much
as a Irani, feeling in favor nf submission is prevalent among the.Hoers.

To
include   this   as
f    the   Sunday
mild   be   prohibited
In Nelson that   sli
was a  mistake on   the   pari   of   the
petitioners.
But '.here   was   no mistake   In the
sentiment out   of   which  the petition
Ifrew.    There   are u  number  of gross
and coarse things   i" connection witli
the observance of Sunday  in  Nelson
that ought not to be allowed, and the
time will soon he hire when they will
not be.    if   the petition to whieli reference is made had confined   itself   to
them;,  the  members  of   the Council
would probably have treated   it   with
more   consideration    than    they   did.
Our Sundays are not what they ought
to be  ill   many respects, nud   we suspect a majority of  the present   Aldermen would so vote if they were asked.
They did not feel free to entertain the
petition as presented, but we arc very-
sure they have 110   sympathy with the
offensive remarks   with which   it was
received by the Mayor, not only iu the
i'.,un,11   hut   in   bis   newspaper.    11,���
told tlie petitioners in effect that they
were   fanatics, and   that    Sunday oh-
servanee in Nelson should   he precisely what he and his friends of the rabble chose to prescribe.
We ,1" not know all those wlnon
Mr. Houston can-reckon as his friends
and abettors iu his Insolent treatment
of a respectable remonstrance, nor
do we care who they are or how
numerous they may he. Hut It is
well they should understand, and
Tlie Miner has pleasure in telling
them, that there is a moral sentiment
in tlilscity of Nelsun which they are
not Influential enough to put down.
aud which is quite earnest in its determination to see that there shall be
a Sunday observance more in sympathy with the spirit of decorum which
has tfiven Canada a reputation which
stands lii^li among the nations uf the
world, l.-'i there In* no mistake on
this point. If Ihe Mayor, or any of
the Mayor's friends, desire to challenge an issue on this question, they
can tiave their wish gratified at auy
time they please. If tlie saloon element, the gambling element. the
sporty element, and all the other
elements in which Mr. Houston takes
pride aud finds sup]sirt, think tbey
can rule this town let theiu give their
challenge anil try cone I usioiis. There arc
men and woman here who are far from
Wing .Sabbatarians, but who regard
with concern and dispaproval the grow
in|r disposition among certain extreme
liberal classes to carry matters wilh
a high hand. Tbey arc Ihe backbone
of the town, nud arc numerous enough
and powerful enough to save il from
thedUgracc of too great license, should
it ever be seriously threatened, Let
that be understood. Whatever it
has been, the Nelson of today
Is quite determined that it shall
never again he in subjection
to the element that would rain any
sort of a Sunday down the throats uf
the people. 	
The new Minister of Lands and
Works, Mr. Wells, is making a tour
of the southern portion of the Province before settling down to his ofti-
cial desk at Victoria. That shows an
intelligent appreciation of his duties.
Mr. Wells desires to ascertain the real
needs of the country, and to see that
they are supplied as fast as our means
will permit. He holds the view that
we cannot in reason "expect outsiders to show their faith in the Provinoe by investing here unless tbe
Qovernment Shows its faith lirst of
all by opening up the country, so that
its wealth may be accessible." That
ia quite true: at the same time it
would be a satisfaction to know that
he recognises there are other things
than roads and bridges which go to
establish faith in a country, one of
the principal of which is the perfect
security of invested capital and all
rights and interests associated with
it. It is useless to expect a road,
trail, or bridge to entice au outsider,
unless he is also inspired with the be-
li,'f that his enterprise will Ik1 fullv
pri itectcd. ���

A COLUMN  OF UNTRUTH.
A Greenwuoii Man's Criticism of Nelson
Athletes.
A correspondent nf The Greenwood
Miner, in tin' last Isaac nf that paper,
criticises tin' management nf the drilling contest ami tlir Imli ami hub race
ami wet test beld in Nelson during
the Dominion Day celebration. Thc
correspondent said that Kims and Mc-
l.i'oil were nut accorded fair treatment. This is absolutely untrue.
These gentlemen were t��>1��i Immediately npon their arrival here that is
was not likely they could drill in the
Robertson contest as they conld nol
fulfill the conditions. They were
further told, though, thai if the regularly entered contestants were willing the management would not statnl
in the way. These men were naked
if they would object   in Ross and Mc-
Lend   drilling     ami     tliey   objected,
Until,1   than   allow   the  Qrcenw I
men tn go away empty-handed a purae
nf Si'"i whs  Immediately offered  ami
this Itoss ami   Mel I   won,      lleforc
leaving Nelson Messrs. Itoss ami McLeod ami Stevens.,n ami Durham, the
two teams nol entered in the Robert-
son contest, personally thanked Mr.
K. c. Beaton, Secretary of the Carnival Committee, (or the treatment they
received. The statement that the
Greenwood men presented proper ere-
.1,-1111111" is an untruth, They did noth-
ills' of the snrt. anil If The llreenwood
Times' correspondent wants to know
the truth he ean gel it from Messrs.
Itoss ami Mel I. They are gentleman ami nnt disposed to misrepresent,
In regard to the huh and hub race
and the wet test The Times'corres*
ponilent again wanders far fnnn the
truth.    In   the   hull   ami   hub race it
wan not  decided that  the   starting
signal should he a pistol shot,       Al a
meeting al which were tin- captains
of the Greenwood, (.rami Porks ami
Nelson teams it was agreed lhat the
starting signal should he the drop-
ping of a flag. The Insinuation that
two  of   Nelson's    timekeeper's   were
(llshoiu"it  i�� mean  and contemptible
!". .1. Duncan
left Vancouver for Nelsun yesterday
morning, They will arrive In Nelson
this evening.
Word has been received hero that
