Canyon. -Fishing and
With the opening tip of the summer
season, und the coining of the tourist,
mention of a few of the delightful re
sorts within easy reach of the city
Will be timely. Nelson in itself
possesses no mean list of attractions
for those in search of health or amusement. For boating there are a goodly
selection of boats for hiie, ranging
from tiny canoes to handsome sailing
bouts and gasoline or  steam launches.
Rilling on the electric cars here
possess many features which are lacking 111 U-ss favored towns and for a
person where time for amusement or
pleasure is limited to take the round
trip on n summer's morning, or else
at sunset, is a revelation of what a
variety of beautiful scenery can be
seen and enjoyed in so short a time.
While thc riding and driving facilities are not extra, yet there are a few
places of interest to visit thus, thnt
arc well worth taking in," among
them being the canyon nnd falls tf
Cottonwood creek, the grand view
from parts of the Hall Mines road,and
the reservoir.
Hy small boat, one of the best
place", to visit, especially during July,
arc the fulls of (Irohman creel;, near
Melons', point. These falls, though
comparatively unknown outside of the
few hundreds of people who have visited them, are a perfect gem of beauty
in the midst of as wild and awesome
a letting of rocks as one wonld wish
to see. There are ulso some pretty
falls on Five Mile creek, hut these are
rather ilillicult of access. Ily rail the
number of enjoyable outing spots to
be reached within a day's journey
nre almost limitless. Going westward from Nelson,8ve miles down the
river, the rapids at Kootenav Crossing are nt all seasons of the year
worthy of a day's inspection. Jnst
above the bridge, a short distance,
is a wide glassy stretch of water in
which usually there is hardly a ripple, anil on the surface even the current is barely perceptible. The suddenness with whicli the water breaks
into fierce roaring conl'usioi , mailing
the rocky shores reverberate with the
clamor is at first view apalling.
Where the main current sweeps
through between the arches of the
bridge, the water is very deep aud
takes a ten foot leap before a break is
made The rough rocks on either side
of the main channel, however, break
the water into fulls, cross and back
currents till the oye in attempting to
follow tho wild turmoil, makes the
head reel. Near the south shore, is
the "Colfee Pot'' an immense eddy
in .which logs, diiftwood and the various debiis of Hie river at high water
are whirled and ground together
round and round at u giddy speed.
From the Crossing to ltobson the river is n series '.of wild rapids, interspersed with smooth stretches, Bon-
nington Falls is the next plnce the
train stops at, and n splendid trip fur
good walkers is to take the early tialn
to Bonnington Fulls, walk from there
back to the Crossing nnd catch the
evening train for Nelson at Granite
siding, at the south end of the bridge.
so many places convenient to low.i

day good strings of trout aie brought
in, oaught within a mile or two of
town. At the Crossing It is generally
good, while Slocan Junction is obtaining a widespread- reputation Jfoi

trout caught in the river there. Al
Cottonwood lake, five miles south of
Netlson, on the Nelson and Fort Sheppard railway occasionally some good
strings may be obtained, but for one
really fond of fishing it is better to
stay on the train till Hall Siding or
Ymir is reached, and the mangifieent
pools of Salmon river are available as
well as many good streams in that
Later in the season the marshes at
the month of Goat river afford appar
enlty inexhaustible flocks of wild
fowl. Grouse are fairly plentiful
quite close to town, also rabbits, but
need some one who knows the country to find them. An occasional deer
may be obtained in Grohman valley,
tbis probably being the best locality
for game close to town.

and a very successful convention. Mr.
Wllks was elected vice-president of
the organizaiton and Mr. Jas. A. Baker of Slocan City, a member of the

policy ot organization for the joining

districts, and a number of paid organ-
zeis will be put in the field for the
purpose of strengthening the cause of
organized labor. The result of the
convention revealed the fact that the
State Legislature of Montana, recently
adopted an eight hour day for mine
workers, which has been successfully
initiated, without friction, and tbe
State of Colorado will adopt the same
reform in the near future.
The Confederation of Miners is repotted to be stronger financially and
numerically than ever before in its
history, and the work of the gathering bas terminated under auspicious
conditions. Speaking of mining mat-j

committee representing the C. P. R.
trackmen tonight voted unanimously
in favor of a general strike ou the

work at all points and place hand cars
'n sheds and turn over the keys to the
nearest station agents was mailed to
3,500 trackmen by Grand President
John P. Wilson, 11. R. T. The strike
is to take effeot on June 17. Mr.
Shaughnessy notified the committee
that the company had no answer to

that thu engineers and conductors

Toronto, June 13.���Two precedents
were mad" in Toronto yesterday of
considerable importance to the medical profession. Dr. McMnrchy, daugh
ter of ex-Principal McMurchy, was
appointed on the staff ot the general
hospital and Dr. Margaret McCalluin
was appointed onthe staff of the Sick
Children's hospital. These are the
first appointments of lady doctors to
official medical positions in Canada,
though in England aud the United
States such appointments are frequent.
Winnipeg, June 13.���Knox congregation, Portage la Prairie, has called
Rev. George Arnold, of Waubausbene,
Simcce county, Ontario, to succeed
Rev. Dr. Wright, now of Nelson, who

Belleville, Ont., June 13.-The
Belleville Sun Publishing company
has decided to go Into liquidation.
A meeting of the executive for the
Dominion Day celebration was held
yesterday afternoon to give a fefv
finishing touches to the preparations.
There was not much done beyond arranging the matter of prizes nnd making additional appropriations. The
laoroBSe clnb was voted nn a-ditional
amount of flOO for the purpose of assisting the local team in getting out-
Bide players to compete in the events
on the first of July. It was also decided to award prizes for the best decorated window in the drygoods
line, and a similar prize foi the best
decorated window in any other class.
A prize will also be offered for the
best exterior decorated hotel and another one for the best exterior decoration on any other building.
If any one had any tigering doubt
about the success of the Thursday hilf
holiday, inaugurated some weeks ago
by the retail houses of Nelson, a walk
down llaker street yesterday afternoon would have entirely dispelled
It. It would have shown the following list of closed and open stores:
Dry goods, etc.���Kerr A Co., Fred
Irvine A Co., Hudson's Bay Co.;
Martin O'Reilly 4 Co.
Boots and shoes���Lillie Bros., Nee-
lands Shoe Oo., H. McCauslantl.

One of the four which stayed open
will be closed next Thursday���J. Howell, grocer. Second hand dealers,
bootblack stands and a tew other
small dealers which are not consider,
ed regular merchants, were open.
Druggists and stationers remain open
by agr imenl, and the tobacconists
and confectioners were not asked, or
expected to close. The efforts of those
opposed to the movement, composed
largely of the editor and city editor
of The Tribune, to defeat the movement aie becoming laughable. Yesterday afternoon a man slipped into
one of the stores that had closed but
whose doors were oper. for a moment.
He said he wanted a $300 order filled but the clerk politely told him that
the store was closed and that much
as they regretted it, they could not
serve him. Tbe man with the large
order said that he conld not get into
town in the morning and that the
store would lose the order. Then,
without waiting a moment to impress
upon the clerk the noce.Hi.v of filling tbe order left the store, crossed
the street to where John Houston
stood, evidently waiting for him, and
the two entered into earnest conversation. That the whole affair was a
bluff to provide The Tribune wilh a
story about the violation of the agreement by one firm was very evident to
the clerk who saw the would-be customer leisurely having his boots polished at a street stand at 'J o'clock in
the morning. But still he said be
was not in town in the morning. The
elerk now regrets that he did not call
the bluff by offering to fill the 8300
order just for the fun of seeing bow
the man would get out of it.
On another Thursday afternoon a
Tribune reprcB-atative took a prospective purchaser all over town to find a
grooer who had closed. He was run
to earth finally and asked to fill a
small order bnt refused.notwithstanding the fact that It was a life and
death matter for the man to secure
some baking powder and rolled oats.
If it bad been any other day it is safe
to say that the newspaper man would
not have shown such a burning desire to bring business to that particular grocer.
On the day following the last half
day holiday a sensational story was
circulated through ihe city that a Mr.
Waldie, a large contractor, hud arrived In Ihe city for the purpose of securing supplies for hifl can.n and because the stores on Baker stroet were
closed he was compelled to make his
purchases at a store on the hill, which
was Ihe only store opened and doing
business. But the facts of the case,
as subsequently ascertained, are that
the parties making the purchases had
been inuflenced by certain parties interested, fo transfer their trade from
the firm with whom they have all
been dong business to the parties who
are said to have received the order.
But In order to have some show of an
excuse for transferring tin ir trade it
was arranged that by coming into the
oity on Thuisday afternoon, when it
was well known that the stores would
be closed, it would serve as an ready
made exense for the change without
the formality of having to manufacture one. It will thus be patent to all
unprejudiced people that the story
had no relation to the holiday movement whatever, and those who used it
as a catspaw to pull the chestnut ont
of the fire must not be surprised if the
chestnut burns their fingers when
they get It in their hands, and are to
be thanked for the very material,
though unintended, assistance they
have   rendered to   thc movement.

Some of the Local   Cases   ta. Come Up
Next   Week.
The sitting of the Fnll Court commences at tha coast, next week when a
number of cases of local interest will
come up befoie the judges tor appeal.
R. S. Lennie left for the coast on
Wednesday where he will move for a
new trial in the case of Fawcelt vs
the C. P. R. He will also act as the
solicitor on the appeal eases of Brack-
man at Ker vs. Oppenheimer, and
Thurston vs. Weyl. S. S. Taylor, K.
0., leaves on Saturday to attend the
court where he has to appear on nine
different appeal cases, among them the
following. The case of Paikor vs.
Lawr is an appeal in reference to the
Rebecca mineral claim on Morning
Mountain, near the Venus mine.
Lawr located the claim but. by mistake crossed twenty feet out of line.
Also.in giving notice to apply for certificate of work on one claim to apply
on another his application to the Gold
Commissioner was a verbal one instead
of a written one. Judgment was given for Lawr by Mr. Justice Walkein.
Mr. Parker is appealing against the
judgment and his case will be argued
by E. P. Davis K. C. The ease of G.
0. Buchanan of Kaslo, vs. W. W.
West, is an appeal on the suit brought
against the former by West, claiming
as assignee, tbe amount of an account
for logs owed by Buchanan to one Mc-
Farlane. The mone" claimed by West
was for logs given to MeFarlane by
West which West claims Buchanan
knew about, and promised to protect
him. Buchanan now claims to off-set
the logging claim for damages which
he has against MeFarlane for non-ful 1-
fillment of contract. The trial judtre
held that Buchanan waived these
equities by allowing West to believe
that, he would be protected in any
event. E. P. Davis, K. C, will argue
the ease for Buchanan and S. S. Taylor, K. C, for West. Tlie case of
Brigs vs. Newswander is an appeal
arising out of the Cork and Dublin
mining claims near Kaslo and owned
by the Fleutot syndicate. Briggs sued
under an agreement for breach of
that agreement which was for thc sale
of the gronnd covered by the Cork and
Dublin mining claims to Newswander.
located by Briggs under two former
locations, Two Kids and Morauic.
Owing to the unsatisfactory nature of
the agreement, which was verbal,
judgmel t was given against Briggs
who appeals. S. S. Taylor, K. C,
will argue the case for the appellant
and E. P. Davis, K. C, for the defendant. In the case of Thurston
Slocan Co. vs. G. L. R. Weyl, late of
the Chapleau Mines, the former sues
the latter for K:i. .uiin on account of the
sale of some Rossland town lots, in
which be claims that Weyl, who holdB
tbe property in trust, is withholding
from him his proper share of commission and asks the cancellation of the
agreement. The defendant Weyl made
application to have the case thrown
out at Victoria. Owing to ei lain documents not arriving, on account of a
delay in the mails, the uuse was
thrown out, S. S. Taylor, K. C, will
appear for thc appti I Ian t and Charles
Wilson, K. C, and Et. S. Lennie, for
the respondent.

Vancouver, B. C, June 13.���It hus
been learned on the best authority
that the British Columbia Government
has decided not to enforce the law on
the statutes, prohibiting the export of
cedar logs to the States,until next season. This will give an opportunity to
all firms that have contracts to supply
logs to United States concerns to fulfil
their contracts to the letter. Tbe
loggers aie extremely disappointed at.
having a lucrative trade ta^en from
them. They state that a few saw
mill men,dissatisfied at the high price
of cedar,decided that if they could get
the loggers stopped from sending
cedar to the States they could bear
the price of logs themselves and insist
upon the logs being culled and the
knots removed. They succeeded in doing what they wished in spite of the
fact that the Government loses a
heavy roaylty, as the logs sent to the
States were not cnlled and the business was growing enormously. The
Government were inforwed that loggers would stunfl a royalty of 81 if
they allowed they to continue exporting, but. the sawmill men won ont.
The cedar or. the railway belts, however, is not controlled by the Government and from one property alone
on Vancouver Islnnd 7,000,(KM) feet of
logs has been shipped to Washington
state during last season.
Victorin,B.C., June 13.���This morning Judge Walkem granted the application for extension of the time for
the bearing of the election petition
against Messrs. Pnor nnd Earle, until
December 3. The judge said that an
important matter would be called up
und it was important that their constituents should know whether or nol
they were properly represented. There
has been no laxity in pushing the application and therefore there, would
be a shock to the community if he refused to extend the time of hearing.

At the pic social last evening,at tho

loeal self-denial effort, he had great
pleasure in informing tho friends assembled that their target to laise ono
thousand dollars hud been'exceeded as
the amount, now stood at SI.mil which
bad been collected and promised during the last four weeks. This has
been obtained in audition to any
amounts already collected for the

in these dull times speak volumes nut
only for the genorosity of the people
of Nelson but equally well for the
perseverance of the local ofllcers. Notwithstanding the inclemency of the

fact that the crowd bad enjoyed the
proceedings in every way. Mrs. Captain Beaumont of Rossland was present and add rested tho gathering.

There has been a noticeable im-
pro\ement in the postal service in this
part of the Province, but it is far
from perfect yet. Ccomplaiuts are
still made to this olliee that papers are
received with tegular irregularity at
points outside. The irregularities are
of such a nature that it is impossible
to attribute them to any other cause
than that of carelessness in transmission. The Inspector's work in that

It is thought that the Ottawa Uovernment will soon advertise for tenders for a fast
Atlantic service. One reason given
for taking this step at the present time, instead of longer continuing the policy of procrastination that
has been in practice for years, is that
the existing steamship lines are in a
conspiracy to divert European emigration to South America as against
Canada. That is certainly a good
reason; but au entirely sufficient one
is that given by Sir William Van
Home several years ago, when he said
that Canada had been doing business
on a back street long enough and it
was time she was moving up to the
The idea, or sentiment, which is behind a suggestion made by The Victoria Colonist, thnt the first issue of
postage stamps bearing the portrait of
the King, in both Mother Country and
colonies, should be distinctively imperial, iB perhaps a commendable one,
but it will hardly do yet to give it practical effect. The Canadian stamp, for
example, it ia said, may be of any design we choose, but it should bear the
words "Biitish Empire." It will be
better for a few years yet to stick to
our own name in a matter of that kind,
than to lose our identity by having it
hidden under the name of the Empire. We want the world to continue
to know that there is a country in it
called Canada, and for a purpose of
that kind a postage stamp is an excellent advertisement.
"British Columbia," says The

is difficult for us to realize how very
important a part Britisli Column.u

of Canada. When we tliink of foreign trade we think of the Atlantic
Ocean, as centuries ago men thought
of the Mediterranean. But it is likely that in the years to come the Pacific Ocean will be fully as important

After quoting with approval some
remarks on their School question that
appeared in this column,The World of
Vancouver adds that The Miner disparages freo education. The Miner
haB not done this. At the annual dinner of the alumni of Toronto University a few days ago, Sir William Meredith said that in its institutions
Canada was the best example of a
democracy in tbo world. lie added to
this that to make the development of
out democracy as  perfect   as  possible
it was necessary that education should
be general. And it is. The Miner
would see every boy aud girl in the
country given as thorough an ele
mentary education as the conditions
would allow. There is no way to do
this excepting through a system o1
free schools, therefore The Miner, instead of disparaging free education,
would encourage and uphold it. Hit.
it does not approve sf carrying this
principle of free schools to excess, and
wc submit that It is to excess when
it goes beyond the elementary stage.
Neither the duty of the State nor the
necessities of our perfect democracy
demand the free higher education
which our system is being strained to
supply, in many instances entailing a
burden of taxation tbat is not easily
The census was taken on the same
day in Great Britain, the Australian
colonies, and Canada It is several
weeks now since we learned many of
the particulars concerning tbe population of tbe United Kingdom. Cables
several days old inform us that the
increase cf the decade in the Australian colonies is less than eleven per
cent., and that tbeir population now
is about four and a half millions. The
most that we have been able to ascertain in regard to figures in Canada is
a "report" now and again that ths
population of a certain city is so and
so. Our methods are faulty, or they
are being clumsily carried out, when
we find ourselves so far behind the
Mother Country and our cousins in
Australia. It may be said that Canada is bo much larger than the United
Kingdom that it cannot be coveted sc
easily. For the purposes of taking a
census no country is larger than an
enumeration district, therefore in this
sense Canada is no larger than lireat
Britain. Some of our districts are ie
mote and difficult cf access, but these
are insignificant as to population,
and might easily be estimated in a
statement intended to appease a natural curiosity. We have no doubt
there were a number of estimates of
remote districts in Australia, which
the authorities hastened to make in
order to give the people the closest
possible approximation of the growth
of population. There is no such disposition to please apparent ut Ottawa.

Bentlniseonces of tbe  First Theatr'cul
j   . Performance Here.
Louis Belmour, of the Verner Comedy Co , who closed their three nigbt
engagement at the opera house, lays
claim to the merit o* bringing the
first opera company that ever trod the
boards in this eity.
Mr. llelmuur accorded a Miner re-
po ter an Interesting interview at the
Waverley Hotel while here, and although lie generally chooses the vll-
lian as the strong part on the stage he
by no means strikes an interviewer as
being anything of that stamp nf a
1 num. Hpeaking of the occasion of his
only visit to Nelson prior to their
priiM'iit, engagement, he is full of
pleiiHiint reminiscences. It was in the
Bummer ol 18111, just ten years ago
���when they landed in Nelson. They
bad just completed a long engagement
In Winnipeg, when the rush to Nelson
began. They heard fabulous stories of
3,0(iu people waiting at Revelltoke and
2.r>,Odd at Spokunu anxious to get Into
the mining ciinip of Nelson. They arrived in Hevelstoko, and were compelled to wait there three weeks while
the first steamer of the season was
waiting for the breaking up of the
lee, before they were able to get
through to Nelson, When they arrived they found SOU people here instead
of the densely populated district they
anticipated. The company met B.
Lemon in Revelstoke, who travelled
with them to Nelson. The first opera
house which Nelson had was only of a
temporary character, aud is now the
building opposite the Waverley hotel,
and formerly occupied by Tlie Miner.
The building wis not completed at the
time hut by the assistance of "many
hands which make light work" it
was soon improvised into an opera
house. They charged 81 per head for
everybody, babies and all, and were
well patronized, although some old
timers ate prepared to swear there
were no babies in tlie camp at that
time, but as thai is ouly a matter of
opinion, it makes no difference. The
leading lady of the company was Katie Dalgleish who is nt the present
time one of the leading actresses of
America, and is supporting the celebrated Modjeska in her successful career. The lirst play put on was
['Queen's Evidence, or Solomon
1-aaus." Other plays given during
their engagement were "East Lynne,"
"Lady of Lyons,'' etc., and" the trip
cost the proprietor the sum of 81,200,
which wns hardly made up by their
receipts here.
Mr. Helraour relates an unique experience which happened on the same
trip at what is now known as Kwift
Current. The Swift Current people
were apparently swift in seizing opportunities, and induced the coinpany
to piny on their way out. They had
no opera liouse and only 104 people,
including babies. The manager of the
company naturally objected, but no
refusal would be accepted. The dining
room was emptied of everything necessary and a temporary stage erected
and the C.P.K. train was detained for
the benefit of tlie, company until tbe
play was over. Out of the 104 inhabitants, iu:; paid their admission* and
the two not there Were two children,
one of whom had diphtheria and the
other tbe whooping cough. At the
close of the performance, the show
amoved on, no charge having been
made for tbe use of the opera house
or for the meals of the company, and
the 8102 as the best clean up they ever
made at any place they visited.
Ferry on the Lardo River Breaks
Loose and is Destroyed.
A visitor from the Lardo yesterday
gave an account of a lively ride on the
Lardo river that happened last week
during the high water in which seven
of the C. I'. H. engineers had a most
exciting and dangerous experience.
At the Upper Crossing of the Lardo,
there is, or lather was, a barge ferry.
In this style of ferry motive power
is gained by keeping the craft pointing at an angle up stream by a strong
wire cable overhead, to winch the
ferry is attached by wire ropes running through travelling wheels on
the cross cable. When the desired
bank is reached the stern rope is
tightened up, bringing the barge
broadside to the _2uirent, thus stopping it up. The ferry in question
bad been tied up for the winter in a
sheltered eddy, and the engineering
party decided to open up the 6eason
by making the first trip. The current
was bo wild that soto who were present tried to dissuade them .from attempting the crossing, but as tbey
were anxious to get across the mooring ropes were loosened and the barge
poled out nntil the current caught it.
What happened then took place so
quickly that the spectators on the
bank had not time to do anything to
save the ferry before it was too la*e.
When the full force of the current
struck the barge had been nearly under the cable,thus leaving some slack,
and when the end of this was reached
there came a jerk tbat sent one man
off at the upper side of the barge and
another at the   lower.   At   the  same
time the force of the shock caused the
water to rush up over the barge.whion
canted perilously for a moment with
down stream side up in the air, and
the reverae side deep down in the
whirling water. Then the tackle was
torn out of the barge and it went careening madly down stienm, which
was a very fortunate thing foi the
two men in the water, who both had
obtained a hand hold, which would
not have been tenable for more than
a few Bcconds. Ab it was they were
hauled on board safely. A little
farther down the barge went smash
ou a reef of rock fortunately cIobo to
the shore, and all were enabled to get
off.    The feiry was utterly destioyed.

What proved to be a more profitable find than gold happened the other day to a traveller from San Francisco, while at lunch in one of the
leading restaurants in Nelson. He
ordered a portion of Pumpkin pie,
when to his astonishment his appe-
titie, which he bad lost fifteen years
ago in Arizona, suddenly returned to
him, with renewed vigor. The pie
had a very solid texture and a rich
mellow flavor. The cook informs us
that it was made from "The Morse
Pumpkin Flour." None other just as
good.   Insist on "The Morse Brand."

The fite laddies have, like wise
people, changed their minds in regard
to their statement yesterday that
tbey had decided not to   enter iu   the
hosu leel competition on Dominion
Day, After mature oonalderation they
are opposed to the idea of allowin.
the prize money on that event to g(
begging. They have decided to place
two teams in the field to contest for
Ihe prizes. In the event of tbeir being opposed by aty outside contestants one of the teams will be withdrawn ind the best of the crowd v.iii
be taken and will enter as the Nelson
team. At present, however, there are
two teams of the Nelson fire department in training for the evert under
the captaincy of J. J. Chambers and
John Campbell.
Between   SO   and 00 Miners   L_id   off
on Account of a Break.
An accident of a somewhat serious
nature occurred at the Poorman mine
on W��dnesay which will ultimately
result in the throwing out of work
about 70 men fur an indefinite period.
The air compressor collapsed iu some
of its parts and has so thoroughly
disorganized the operations tbat it has
been found necessaiy to lay off practically the whole force. There are
only seven or eight men at work at
the present time and they will also
have to take their time in tbe course
of a few days. The compressor is broken in some manner as to be unworkable and will take some weeks to repair. It is thought possible that the
necessary parts can be procured at
Rossland but it is more than likely
that the repairs will have to be obtained at the manufactory whose headquarters are ajt Sherbrooke. Que. In
the event of tbe machinery having to
be sent for fiom tbe latter place the
men will be laid off according to the
estimate of the men for six weeks at
the   very lea.'.t.

A Russian Lady Looking For Her
Missing Mate.
A Russian lady arrived in the city
yesterday on the still hunt for her
missing husband. She came from
South Edmonton, where she has been
residing, to join her lord and master
at Robson. He has been in the employ of Contractor Gunn. and had forwarded her a ticket to Robson, but on
arrival at that point he was not to be
found. She then returned to Nelson
and interviewed the city fathers and
tbe Chief of Police. As she could not
speak a word of English an Interpreter had to be found with the result
that she suspected that the police were
aware of his whereabouts and were
acting in a kind of a Russian manner
towards her. The city have taken
charge of the woman and are providing for her physical wants until the
police have had time to attempt his
location. The lady's name is so difficult to write and to avoid the risk of
breaking the press in printing or dislocating a jaw in pronnoucing It, It
is not given.
