Eleventh   Year
Annual Meeting of the Grand
Lodge  Opens   ln
La  Presse   Takes   Up the
Cudgels for French
Toionto, June 20.���Chief interest
in the opening session of the annual
meeting1-! the Grand Lodge of Independent Order of (lood Templars yesterday centered about the address of
Grand Chief Templar Geo. Spence.
In his addiess Mr. .Spence leferred
to the Manitoba prohibition ease, now
before the Privy Council in England,
as a inat'er which would give a clear
understanding of the powers of 1'iov-
Inees and which, if Manitoba is sue
ceasful, would be a great step in advance. Reference was also made to
the trial of prohibition just begun
In Prince l'.dward Island, where an
attempt had been made to avoid the
dilliculiies which had so far prevented the operation of the prohibition
law, of Manitoba. At the evening
meeting addresses of welcome were
given by Mayor Rowland and others,
the mayor being -introduced by F. 8
Spence, his chief opponent at the recent election. The point of the mayor's remarks was tho evil of the treating practice which was a survival
of an old custom which should be relegated to the past, lie was surprised
that it continued in modern   clubs.
Montreal, June 20.���La Presse says
that Principal IMacVieur, Rev. Dr.
Johnsor and other speakers at the
Presbyterian assembly are under a
profound illusion if they.really think
they are making any progress in
French Canadian evangelization. It
says there is not a word of truth in
the statements of Rev. Dr. Aniaron
that thousands of French Canadians
never go to church and that numbers
of lawyers aud notaries are at their
offices on Sunday mornings Instead of
at church. If he had followed the
movements of the Jubilee procession
during the last three months, says La
Presse, he would have learned that
French Canadians are not in a state
of decadence, but rather of a religious
recrudence. "If those gentlemen wish
to be convinced of their error let
them go from one church to another
on Sunday morning from five to eight
o'clock, crowds, compact crowds, are
renewed, four, five and six times in
each of these vast edifices, capable of
holding thousands of persons at the
same time time. As to professional
men who pass the forenoon in their
otlices, Rev. Mr. Amaron will learn
with chagrin, no doubt, that in the
early hours of tho morning they mingle in the crowds of which we have
spoken and that then they are free to
use in peace thc rest of the day. We
really do not believe that live per
cent, of our population voluntary fail
to attend one mass, which, in our
religion, is obligatory.'1
Ottawa, June 20.���W. W. Cory, of
the Interior Department, has been

with cheap material from other countries shipped to England and thence
to Canada. During the past year 84,
000,000 of suoh goods were impoitcd.
The resuit is, he claims, that factories have to close, a firm in Hespeler,
Ontaiio, recently discharging 200 out
of HOI) men. What they need, lie
says, is higher protective tariff and
unless thy get It, the woolen industry
will continue to decline.
Montreal, June 20 ���La Patrie says

i Church  of   England Synod
Discusses the Question
at Length.
Union Is Being Formed Here
and Local Men are
to Go Out.
Montreal, June 20.���President
Shaughnessy of the C. P. R. has issued a circular dealing with the
trackmen's stiike in which he regrets
that the maintenance-ofways men
should have left the employment of the
company. The circular states that if
their bad been the slightest warrant
for concessions beyond those already
granted matters would have been per-
m'tted to reach an acute stage. The
men charged with administration of
the company's affairs are justified in
according emplojees the highest pay
prevailing on neighboring railroads.
This is the greatest consideration iu
other respects that the circumstances
permit. If they go beyond this, however, they are open to accusation of
incompetence and extravagance. Thc
circular goes on to say that the company has no quarrel with the men;
on the contrary, it is hoped that ever
man will return to woik at once so
as to obtain advantage of the concession which the company   have   made.
Calgary, June 20.���The stiiking C.
P. R. s-ctioniuen here have sent a
message to the grievance committee
at Montreal to accept the company's
terms. The feeling is that the company has acted fairly with the men,
and that opportunity nhould now be
given to let the advances and now
conditions conceded by the company
beoome effective.
Vancouver, June 20.��� Tho 0. P. R.
strike situation is unchanged. Mr.
Townley, assistant to the superintendent, states that they are sending men
out daily to take thej place of the
strikers and there iB no trouble The
train today is said to be delajed by'a
land slide.
Yesterday morning news reached
the men in the C. P. R. railway yards
here that the trackmen on the Slocan
branch had gone out on strike. .So far
the NeUon laborers had received no
decisive word from Montreal but
about noon it was reported that a union had been formed here and the
men belonigng to it would go out on
strike today, having received orders
to that effect fiom the visiting delegate. 	
Executive Committee of the Anglican
Synod Moving   in Matter.
After the adjournment of the Synod
yesterday the executive committee
held a meeting at which the following resolution was passed:
"That the Synod of Kootenay at Its
second session desires to express to
the Venerable Society for the Prorogation of the Gospel its sincere thanks
for the continuance of its grant to tbe
diocese and for the additional amount
of ��110 for three years, which will bo
applied to the opening of new missions in localities where they are
greatly needed. The Synod would
convey to the Vonerable Society that
It endeavors so to allocate the block
grant as to create self-supporting parishes at the   earliest   possible date."
The matter of drawing up a memorial to tbe board of Domestic and Foreign Missions on behalf ofthe support
of a Bishop for tbe Diocese of Kootonay was left with the Archdeacon,
and the Bishop was requested to make
tbe necessary arrangements with the
executive of New Westminster.
It was decided to arrange for tbu local annual appeal on behalf of the
Home Missions between September
and December, and to carry It out on
the same basis as last year of one dollar per communicant.
Work of the  Session Was
Completed at Noon
that they were doing wrong In going
out rowing or walking on Sunday
afternoon. It was their only chance
of recreation in the week and he
thought they deserved it. Yet to draw
the line between that and unnecessary
recreation on Sunday, when sufficient
could be bad during the week was
hard. He was a member of the Lord's
Day Alliance, not with the objeet of
debarring anyone from innocent recreation, but to seoure for every worker
one day in the seven to attend church
and rest as his conscience dictated.
Bev. H. Steele spoke of men who
j had very short office hours, allowing
I tbem to go boating or piny tennis
three or four times a week, yet saw
nothing wrong in it on Sunday, for
which in their case there was no excuse.
Rev. C. A. Mount thought that
Charles Kingsley had laid down a
very sensible and practical precept
when be said that those who had
spare time for recreation during the
week should not use any part of Sunday for tbe purposo, but for those who
hatt not any other time, they ought at
least to come to church and have their
recreation in the afternoon.
Rev. H. Beer did not see any harm
in innocent reoreation as long as it
really did not interfere with church
attendance. In talking with miners
who asked him what to do to sp;nd
the day, when far from church or service, he advised them to take a bath
and wash their clothes, as cleanliness
was Indeed next to godliness.
Archdeacon Pentreath said that tlie
fundamental principle of the da; was
that it should be one of rest and worship.
Dr. Westwood thought that the
efforts of the committee should be directed towards obtaining a Saturday
half holiday, instead of closing early
in tbe evenings, and thus recreation
wonld be obtained on Saturday leaving the Sunday free.
Rev. E. P. Flewelling said that
when people got Saturday afternoon
as a holiday they generally went away
and made it last till Monday, forgetting all about the Sunday. It seemed
as though the easier the hours and
the more time given for good recreation, the less it waa made use of in
any proper way.
Rev. W. A. Robins���"We havo to
face a changed order of things and
the church must handle it very carefully. On the one side there is the
Continental Sunday, as seen in the
large cities of Europe, which is awful
and abhorrent, on the other is the
Puritanical Sabbath which the people
reject. Stirely the church can observe
the proper medium." As a young man
he could fully understand the desire
for one day of freedom to indulge in
recreation. There could not bo any
bard and fast rules to apply to all.
What might bo right for one wculd
he wrong for another. The miners
should have their aSundays. There
were many who said that the day
would be spent by them In debauchery
Big Strike Imminent Among
Fishermen  at  the
The Church of England Synod, which
has been sitting in Nelson since Wednesday morning, concluded its labors
at noon yesterday and adjourned. Tbe
meeting has been an entirely successful one and the clergymen and laymen
attending it have expressed themselves,
as well pleased with Nelson and their
treatment here.
The Synod commonced nt 10.15 yesterday morning and after the minutes of the previous session Were read
and confirmed, Rev. 11. Steele gave
notice of a motion to appoint a committee on temperance and Rev. A.
Beacbara a similar notice for a committee on Sunday observance.
Tbe Synod then revolved itself into
a committee of tbe whole oa the canon
ot superannuation.
In committee stage, the proposed
cation was amended and clauses eight
and nine were left to a committee to
be appointed by the bishop.
On reporting, it was decided that
clauses eight and nine should be referred to a committee to be appointed
by the bishops to leport at the next
synod. The Bishop appointed the following Committee Rev. C. A. Procunier, Rev II. S. Akehurst; and Messrs.
E. A. Crease, Geo. Johnstone, J'. M.
The Bishop then announced tbe
consecration of the church at Grand
Forks on Tuesday of next week and
stated that members of the Synod
would be made welcome at Grand
Forks for that occasion.
The Bishop appointed the following
committee on temperance, the Archdeacon, Rev. W. A. Robins, Rev. H.
Steele, Messrs. Robt. Wood, Myers-
Gray, H. C. Hannington and Ur.
The motion of Sunday observance
of whioh Rev. H.Beaebam gave notice
was withdrawn in favor of the foi
lowing motion by Rev. H. S. Akehurst, an J Rev. H. Beachatn: "That
we,tbe members of this Synod of Kootenay, Would very strongly urge upon
our people tbe importance of the religious observance of tbe Lord's Day,
which should nover he lost sight of
in the search for recreation. We
would also express our sincerest sympathy with all who   are   endeavoring  but he did not believe such   a   thing
Some, perhaps would, but they woultl
Winnipeg, June 20.���Geo. Stephen
formerly travelling freight agent of
the C. P. R. at Nelsou, has arrived in
the city and taken over his new duties as assistant to Traffic Manager
' Shaw of the Canadian Northern,
to secure to the world's tolling popu
lation the one day of rest in seven."
This was carried.
Before- this motion was carried the
most interesting discussion of the
Synod took place. Archdeacon Pentreath said that although it sometimes
seemed hard to realize it, yet the
trend of opinion really was towards
a better observance of Sunday than
had existed a fow years ago. He Instanced in Nelson, us a case in point,
where the majority of tne city conn
cil were opposed to Sunday baseball
within the city limits, when if such a
question had come up even two years
ago it would almost Inevitably have
been decided in favor of Sunday'oil I.
Ho did not believe in the clergy trying to force tl). ir views down the
throats of those who were opposeu to
such views, but it was their i>nty to'
point out the right way always.
Many joung men from the east who
bad been brought up strictly and
taught to observe Sunday, when thoy
came we.,t were the first to break
loose from all restraints and went to
the opposite extremes in Sabbath desecration.
Mr. Mai tin.speaking of the motion,
said that the cessation of labor rath'
ei than the cessation of tecroation on
that day was called for. He said that
as a church much could be done towards gal'ling alia day of rest and
that miners especially fully deserved
one day of rest or recreation in the
seven. The church should do all they
cou'd towards securing them that
Rev. H. S. Akehurst said that he
did not think that he could honestly

Man at  Chilliwack
be a small percentage. It would be an
opportunity for good foi- them, and
they should have It
After a few more remarks the above
resolution was decided upon and carried.
The registrar, Mr. E. A. Crease,
then presented a report on the property of the various parishes and missions, with nature of title and amount
of taxes, etc. Ilo strongly urged upon the clcigy and parish officials thc
necessity of taking immediate steps to
secure proper titles aud registration.
On motion of Mr. Crease, seconded
by Rev. II. S. Akehurst, it was resolved, "That thc clergy of the re-
specive parishes and missions be re-
ii.nested,, to Complete the respective
titles to church properties and protect
such pioperties from taxes and asssess-
motits." It was also tesolved, "That
all deeds to church property having
been duly registered and accepted
shall be forwarded to the rcglstrate
of the diocese."
This concluded the regular business
ot the session.
The following votes of thanks were
passed, to the rector and church
Wardens of St. Saviour's church for
the use of the church and school room
for Synod purposes, to J. II. Lambert
for his sermon at the Synod evensong, (coupled with a request thut he
send the sermon to tho Canadian
Churchman for publication), to tho
Nolson club for the courtesies extended to the delegates, to the citizens of
Nelson generally and especially to
the ladles, to the S. Pi O. for the continued and increased support and to
tbe Bishop.
The Synod was then closed with the
Benediction at 1.30 p. in.
Van louver, June 20.���Labor troubles threaten to paral-ze the Hritish
Columbia salmon cannery industry
this year, and the rich harvest in the
fresh water streams of British Columbia may not be reaped at ail because
the fishermen asks 2'_ cents per fish
more than thc canners will give. The
fishermen's unions in fact have demanded 12% cents for the entire season and the canners offer 1 _}_ cents
till the 3id of August and 10 cents
thereafter if the run is large. If the
run is not large 121.; cents will be
continued throughout the season.
As the canners have refused to treat
further with tlio fishermen a strike is
inevitable. In the meantime 8,000
Japanese fishermen have met and
formed themselves into an association
of their own and the majority of them
have agreed to accept the canners'
oiler, so that the canners will havo
2,000 Jnps to fall back on. Last year
4,000 boats wore in service but if the
run is a large one 2,000 boats can
catch all the UbIi desired. So that besides the strike of several thousand
white fishermen serious troubles may
be anticipated between the Japs and
whites. The Japs' reason for taking
the stand they do,is that half of their
number ure in debt tu tbe canners
wbo with an eye to business provided
for their keep during the winter and
advanced them money for tackle, etc.,
the other half are in a half starved
condition depending on the short fishing season to piovide them . ith tho
necessaries of life for tlio remainder
of the year. Those in debt have put
up their boats as Security and those in
distress must work or Starve. Thus
they will lish in defiance of strikers if
they have to ask as British subjects
(for all havo managed somehow to
secure naturalization papers) for the
assistance of thc King's soldiers.
This is what was done last season and
the determined little .Brownies will
do it again under provocation.
In the meantime the business world
is ardently praying that there will be
no strike, for a big run of salmon
means that millions of dollars is put
in circulation on the Canadian Pacific
coast which iB absolutely necessary
to tide over the dull times of the
present season. If there is no strike
saliiinii will he cheap. British Columbia intends to put up 1,1500,000 cases.
The Alaska Packing Co, 1,000,000,
and the Puget Sound packers, 1,809,-
000 cases. Four million cases in all
which counting IS Ilsn to the case,
means thut the world will be asked to
eat 48,000,000 salmon within the next
month caught on the Pacific coast,
They will havo to offer the:.i pretty
cheap, if they catch and pack that
Vancouver, II. C., June 20.���A
shocking fatality occurred at Chilliwack Wednesday during the progress
o' the    hoise races.    Ilriico   MuSwuin,
son of a prominent farmer, was riding a neck and neck, race with another pony at a hard gallop. The Crowd
jvas cheoring but suddenly became
silent as McSwuln's pony bolted, and
running into tlie ditch, collided heavily with a large tree Tne young rid-
or's head vas dashed again jt a branch.
For an instant the boy swayed in the
saddle, then dropped dead.
The leaders of the white fishermen
say that the unions will meet again to
consider the unal olTci ol the canuers
but they have no hope that it will ho
accepted. They feur the worst. Tho
Indians have refused to fish unless the
white men do and without Indian
klotchmen salmon cannot be packed.
At the present time Japanese are the
only aval la bio fishermen and the situation Is serious. Circulars wore sent
to thu fishermen today announcing
the last offer to bo made by the canners. Nelson Daily Miner,  Friday, June _i, 1900

During the bnclget debate in the
Britisli House of Commons the Chancellor of the Exchequer refused to believe that ihe military expenditure
was too great, as claimed by Sir
Ileniy Ecwler,who argued that there
was no land frontier to defend. Is
there no land frontier in India? Has
C��nada no land fro_tier? the Chancellor demanded to know. Mr. Gilbert
Parker, a Canadian, followed soon
after in the debats, but he did not
answer this question. He might have
said that Canada has no frontier to
speak of. To speak of the boundary
lini on the south in this connection
would mean that a large military ex
penditure is necessary to keep the
United States in order. The world, we
suspect, has seen the last war between the United States and Great
Britain. The American people are
generally unreasonable and always
exasperating, but somehow they
manage to have men at Washington
who have sense enough to know that
a war with Great llritain would be
about the most wicked and' foolish
thing it is possible to imagine. There
could be no gain to either country as
the result of it. There will continue
to be differences und disputes, but
these will bo settled by arbitration.
If the international boundary,therefore, is not to be regarded as a frontier in the sense referred to���and wc
think Sir Michael Hieks-Ileach himself would agree that it is not���then
it can be said that Canada has very
little land frontier to defend. No one
has threatened us, or is 1'kely to
threaten us, ou our Arctic coast; in
fact, the ice defences tip iu that region are general; regarded as impregnable. On our Paoiflc const, thanks
to the stupidity of the Hritish statesmen of a century ago, nearly our
whole front is cut off by a strip of
foreign territory, Labrador does not
naturally in.ite attack, but so far as
Canada is concerned a strip along
the entire length of it cuts us off from
the Atlantic. A little corner down in
the region of Halifax may bo exposed,
but who caitild ever suppose that a
lllucnose could not hold his own?
There may bo a hundred reasons
why the military power of Great
llritain should be uuiintained at a
high level, and we think we could
mention two or three of them ourselves, but apprehension as to Canada
must be reckoned ns one of the least,
.  if it is to be reckoned lit all.

"It would puy the Province of II. C
to hire an advertising agent," says
The New Denver Ledge. "The Provincial .Secretary in handing ads to
the pious exhibits about as much sense
an a fool at a wedding." This re
mark would give the Impression that
tho editor of The Ledge is more inno
cent than the majority of his readers
would credit hiin wit',,. (Iovernment
ad vert i semen ts ns a rule are not intended to advertise; they are deslgnod
and distributed as pnp to hungry supporters. In Nelson they are a part of
the price paid by tho Government for
t~.e vote of a member who wns elected
to oppose them. Thoy thus serve as a
means by which a Government can
entrench themselves in power; in oilier words, they are cheap and handy
instruments of bribery.
While diposed to favor the principle
of day labor on public works,The New
Denver Ledge feels constrained to id
in it that as carried out In its neigh
borhood It is I in bin to very serious
impeachment. It says; "As a general
thing men when working for
tho Government believe tbnt the
prime object of their labor le
to give the Government agent nn
excuse for paying them their
wages. It Is not a question of getting
well paid for an honest day's work,
but rather one of doing ns little work
as possible for  an honest   day's  pay.
It is a slow man's race. The result
is that the money being spent here
abouts in public improvements is not
achieving the desired end, in the
measure that it ought. Workmen on
public works in this camp are invariably .veil paid, and for the good of
the public, an honest day's work
should be required of them." .
It was expected two days ago that
the Full Court at Victoria would decide whether a half-sister is a sister
or something else. The question
came up in connection with tbe succession duty in the case of a man who
died leaving all his property to a
half-sister. If a sister, the duty will
be five per cent, of the estate over the
exemption of 85.000; if not a sister,
the duty will be ten per cent. The
legatee has a substantial monetary in-
terest in tbe case, but to the general
public it is interesting because of tbe
peculiar character of tbe point raised.
Last year from the Slocan and Slocan City mining divisions, there were
shipped in all about 35,000 tons of
ore. For the six months and a half
of this year, ending June 15, the total shipments were 11,338 tons. This
shows a large decrease in production.
Should the rate be maintained, the
output this year will be a third less
than that of last yean The Minister
of Mines could not employ a day or
two to better, advantage than to sit
down and consider with all his might
just what pioportion o* this decrease
is to be charged against meddling and
hampering legislation.

Incidents of au Interesting Romance
In Which Police Played a Part.
Four months ago a lady arrived in
the City from the east in search of
her unfaithful lover who had deserted
her and had heen in the neighborhood
of Nelson. Thc City authorities took
her in hand and cared for her until
her devoted lover was traced to the
oity of Rossland. She followed him
there aud nothing moie was heard of
them until Wednesday evening last,
when the lady and her hubby ai rived
in this city. Thev put up at one of
the hotels and tho lady's trunk arrived in due course. She being somewhat dubious of her adored one's devotion, asked where his trunk had
been left aud was assured that it
would arrive in due course. At the
usual hour for retiring they went to
bed, aud thinking that his wife was
Bleeping the lord and master subsequently arose and began to dress. His
lady love was acting the detective,
however, and was not sleeping. She
Inquired as to where he was going
and he replied that he was thirsty
and wanted a drink, adding that
the water in the room was not good
enough to use, and was going down
Stairs to get some. The story, however, did not appeal to her feminine
instinct as an exactly plausible one.
Hhe, therefore, followed his example
aud dressed also, and followed him
downstairs. Her suspicions were more
than confirmed, for on arriving in
the rotunda of the hotel he was no
where to be found. It was quite evident that he intended to deseit her, so
she hunted up the police, who had
been so much her friend on the previous occasion, and poured into their
willing ears her tale of woe which
was a long ami pitiful story. They
imiueiliate.lv began a still hunt for
the recreant individual. After o short
investigation they discovered that the
missing man had not removed his
trunk to the hotel but had taken it
down to the wharf and had it on
board the Albcrtu. Further investigation revealed the fact that he had taken a stateroom on the boat and was at
that very moment In his berth and
asleep. They left him to his Blum-
bers and his connubial dreams and hurried back to the city. They hired a
hack, put the lady's trunk on board,
called the lady and drove her down tb
thu wharf and put her on board the
boat before revealing to her that her
beloved husband was ou deck. She
Was left on the Alberta witli the strict
injunction not to aiouso the sleeping
beauty until the buat was safely under way, or, better still, until he
awoke in the morning. When thc
boat left the wharf the happy couple
were safely on board and the loeal police are congratulating themselves that
they have got the lady off their hanJs
the second time, although they are of
the opinion that their treatment of
her during her former stay in the city
was bo satisfactory to both the part
ners in thu romance that it was more
than likely that he had arranged this
means of providing for her during his
projected tour. Unfortunately the
poll36 weie uuable to supply the final
result of this very interesting uud
exciting story but it is easy to imagine wnat an exciting time there was
when the man found that he and thc
partner of his joys and sorrows wore
once more In the same boat.

Sir,���Owing to thc fact that con
siderablo public comment bus been
caused hy the music and decoration
committee refusing to engage the R.
M. H. band for the coming Dominion
Day celebration, a few remarks coming from the band side of thc question
may not seem amiss. The R. M. R.
band has been iu continuous existence fift over a year and is thc only
(Organization iu Nelson capable of
dcing credit to a eity which occupies
the proud position that Nelson does
today. Tho R, M. R.band has'ahvays
aimed to furnish the highest class _f
music. Those who attended the I. 0.
O. Ir'. excursion to Kaslo on May -'4th
last can bear witness as to the capability ol our musical organization.
On such occasions as tho Queen'S
funeral, the departure of the South
African volunteers, and on many
othor similar public occasions, the
band has cheerfully given its services
free of charge. It costs money to keep
a good band alive Our account foi
last month's expenses alono amounted
to over $10 We have no grunt fiom
the City, no contributions fron.
awealthy merchants, BUJh as is generally tho case in other cities. Wo havo
���no raeanB of supporting thc hand ex-
.cept what wc earn by publio engagements. There are only two dates on
which a really good clay's engagement
���can be expected for supporting a band,
namely May 34lli aud July 1st. On
those occasions the bsnd expects to
receive as good a price us would be
paid to Union musicians in the Eastern cities'. With 1(1.1. subscribed to
spend on music and decoration it
acorns that the committee might have
allotted more than tho paltry sum
which they havo done for securing
good music on bucIi   an  important oc
casion. The members of our band are
not millionares. Each man furnishes
an instrument worth from $30 to $150.
He spends two or three evenings every
week of his life acquiring the necessary skill to play iho high giadc music we furnish and when our services
are required we consider we aie entitled to as good a day's pay as we
could get in other Western cities.
Music lovers will be able to judge
the wisdom of the music committee's
action on July 1st.

Our niece, who had Consumption in
an advanced stage, also used this
wonderful medicine and today she is
perfectly well." Desperate throat,

A skunk calmly sauntered down the
railway track near the C. 1'. II. yards
yesterday morning, heading for a
group of men at work there. He was
received with a volley of stones at
long range, one of which laid him
out before any damage was done.

Tho Wariigraph company has been receiving flattering press notices in the

varied nature.
W. R. Hocking, who was arrested
for bigamy at Cranbrook some timo
flgoj and convicted at the fullg assize
court in this City,is Hkuly to have another chance for his liberty. It ap
pears that at the time of tho trial he
was so lliianjially emburrassed that
the evidence he claimed to havo in
Halt Lako City could not he obtained
and the only defense he had was his
own Story, while the witnesses for
the prosecution were pioduced at the
expense of the crown. The American
consul, Colonel Dudley, of Vancouver,
is now iu the City, and Is exerting
his influence to procure the prisoner ft
new tiial or a pardon, as there is supposed to he reasonable proof that be
was speaking the truth when he staled tho he thought lhat his former

A glance into the future is afforded
iiy the newspapers of Hurlington,
Vermont, where every local banking
institution advertises with as much
spirit and enterprise as a department
store. The Merchants' bank, one of
the oldest and most conservative in
the state, changes its "ads" every
day, and besides telling what it can
do for people gives good advice which
leads them to save money. The time
is not distant when every unfossilifer-
ous financial institution in��the land
will follow this example.
The clerks' Thursday afternoon excursion on the Moyie yesterday afternoon was a great success. The weath-
ei was all that could be desired and
tlie ciowd who availed themselves of
the trip were loud in their praises of
tbe arrangement and it is the consensus of opinion of those who patronized
the outing that the Thursday afternoon holiday movement is a decided
success. There were one hunrded and
twenty-five tickets sold and there is
every prospect of the next week's excursion being a greater success than
Last evening a party of three Masonic delegates were making their
way down Ward street past The Miner
ollice, when one of thc party, who
was slightly in advance, unexpectedly
went down the first two steps in tbe
sidewalk, which caused him to run
forward. He turned his head, while
regaining his equlibrium, to swear
at tbe cause of the mishap, not noticing that he was on thu brink of the
next lot of steps, down which he
plunged and went through a regular
series of gymnastics, finally sitting
down with emphasis.
More of the stores observed tbe half
day holiday afternoon than ever.
Practically all the grocery and dry
goods stores were closed up tight.
All tbe haidware stores were wide
open and it is evidently the intention
of these merchants to remain open for
the balance of the season. The hardware men are in favor of a Saturday
afternoon but refuse to close on the
same day as the rest of the stores.
The stationery and drug stores were
all wide open but practically all the
rest of the retail stores are prepared
to stand by the movement.

The sermon on the Chinese question
whicli was preached in the Cougrega
tional church by the Rev. Mr. Munroe has caused considerable discus-
ion with a natural divergence af opinion. There is considerable opposition
to his view on the question among
the organized labor element here.

Society aie going to take up the question at their meeting lu thu Miners'

when there will he a three sided discussion on the question. Rev. Mr.

Arrangements Under Way For   an Interesting Part ot the Celebration.
Yesterday afternoon a meeting was
held in the Congregational church
parlors, to discuss one of themost important events of the coming celebration, vi_., the children's float and
the baby show. Besides the committee a number of ladies interested were
piesent. What was decided on for the
children's design is, of course, to be
kept a close secret���with the help of
all the ladies who are aiding iu arranging it.
Dr. LaBau has scoured the use of
the heavy dray that Steeper & Co.
have for moving boilers, sales, etc,
and four, lirst-class. quiet horses, so
that no worry need be felt by Un-
parents of those who are going to ride
on the float. All children who wish
to take part in the procession should
make applieatiou at once to any of
the ladies of the committee, so that
their names may be secured and proper instruction given. Mesdames. W.
J; Goepel, 11. B. Bellamy, M. S.
Davys, J. Sturgeon, Dr. Arthur, C. G.
Griffin. J. A Gilker and IL E. Con-
non, are the ladies of the committee
who are attending to this.
From all Indicating ut present this
fenture will be successful beyond all
precedent. Children between the
ages of six und fourteen years are
needed foi the. Hoat.
The baby show will be held on the
second day, instead of on the fh-st, to
allow the judges to huve an opportunity of seeing at least part of the
celebration. Commodious quarters
will be secured where the babies in
their carriages can be brought in and
placed in good position for the Judging. For this conipctition babies between six and eighteen months old
are wanted. Application forms muy
be secured from either Mis. W. A,
Macdonald or Dr. LaBau,
