CELEBRATION
Committees  Hard  at Work
Arranging for the First

Elaborate   Decorations   and
Electrical Display���Trades
Procession.
Tho committee in charge of the
street   decorations   for   the Dominion
��� Day celebration met last night in the
office of the chairman. .Mr. A. G.
Gamble. It was decided to offer $50
for the best decorated hotel and 825
for the best decorated building other
than an hotel.   These prizes will have
- the effect of greatly beautifying the
streets,making the main thorouglifaies
things of beauty and a joy for two
days. The committee made an important chauge in the general character of the decorations by deciding
to discard Chinese lanterns for the
nigh', illuminations and use electric
lights. Some 850 incandescent lights
will be strung on llakcr street, be
tween Kootenuy and Hall, on Stanley
street' from Victoria to Haker and
from Haker down Ward to the City
wharf. This will be by long odds the
most ambitious attempt Nelson has
yet made in the way of decorating
aod should make the City decidedly
beautiful. Flags and bunting will
be used in profusion and with the
decoration on the buildings thc streets
. will be attractive both day aud
night.
TRADES PROCESSION.
the chief individual attraction at the
Dominion Day celebration is evident
from the interest being manifested in
the water carnival und boat races.

SENSATIONAL
TRAQEDY
|U Is Now Said That Young
Redpath Killed  His
Mother.
Objections to Prior and Earle
Election Petition Dismissed.
(SPECIAL- TO THE! MINER.)
Victoria, H. C, June 14.���The bus-
iuoss of courts here is so congested
that serious dilHciilties confront the
judges. The Full Court has been
sitting nearly all week on one case
and several others are to be disposed
of. This morning it was decided that
the Full Court sitting at Vancouver,
which was to have been held on Tuesday next, shoulit be postponed until
the 25th. There are 30 appeals to
come before the court there which
will take perhaps a month.
Judge Wulkem this morning; overruled all preliminary objections to
the petition agaiuet the return of
Messrs. Prior and Earle with costs
to the petitioners. The trial is lo be
held before Deceinbei 2nd.
SOME  MYTHICAL ORDERS.-
Enormous Business That Was Not
Transacted on Thursday Afternoon.
The Tribune's persistent opposition
to the Thursday half holiday movement Is making itself felt. In view of
the enormous business that The Tribune reports _ould be done on Thurs
day afternoon the merchants are
considering the advisability of remaining open on Thursday afternoons
and elosing for the rest of the week.
If they could do the business The Tribune says knocks at their closed doors
on that particular afternoon they
would be content to keep closed the
rest of the week. It Is certainly most
remarkable that on Thuisday afternoons people from outside points with
hundreds of dollars in their pockets,
come trooping to town. It seems that
all the contractors and big mining
men m the country choose Thursday
afternoons for their shopping. What
they used to do on that particular
day before the movement was inaugurated is not quite clear but they probably stayed at home and .ountcd their
money.
One of the cases   of Thursday after
noon disappointments recorded in The
Tribune was that of C. W. Busk   Mr.
Busk visited   the   store ot J. G. Hun
yan A Co. on   Thursday   morning but

li It-  to   float   anything   in   tbat   line, as Mr. Hunyan was Dusy elsewheie an
there.    Farming is in a more prosper-1engagement   was   made  to   see    Mr.
ous condition in Ontario than it has
ever been before, and other lines of
business are also good. As fur as
weather is concerned it would not be
advisible for anyone to go east for
sunshine. For three weeks before Mr.
Anderson left it had been raining
steadily in Ontario, and even in Manitoba the drought had been broken
and a ''mortgage lifting rain" was
soaking things in good shape, when
he passed through.
Mr. Anderson regards the prospects
of the Lardo for the coming summer
and fall as being very good. When he
left Lardo a few days ago rails were
being laid and a construction train
was already running out of town a
short distance. There is great activity on most of the Upper Duncan river
claims at present, miners being on-
gaged in development work on a
large number of claims. The season
so far has_been a very backward one,
tbe snow remains deep on the hills
preventing development work on
many good claims whose owners are
anxious to put men on them.
There   were  only two cases   before
I the police court yesterday.    One   was
of   the !the onse ��* a.drunk who was so disarm
s   anx
ious to hear from ull those who intend
to illuminate their bicycles for the parade on the second night of the celebration. As soon as the names are in
he will have a meeting to fix the details.

morning and admitted the charge by
paying the customary fine of 85 and

no visible means of subsistence. Ilis
case was remanded for 24 hours to
give him further time to ilnd out how
he lived.

the goods. Martin Anderson, who
was reported to have placed a large
order for bocts and shoes, was in
town cn Wednesday and got quotations on his order from all the merchants. He had lots of time to buy
ana was not for.ed to do so On Thursday afternoon. Mr. James Cronin of
the St. Eugene mine was in Nelson all
day Wednesday and Thursday morning, yet Tha Tribune endeavors to
make it appear that he was here only
on Thursday afternoon and could not
place his order any other time.
That the opponents of the movement do not stick at lying to gain
their end Is evident from the following conversation which took place between one of the opponents and a
prominent mer.hant who closed his
store:
"You lost a couple of big orders by
being closed."
"Did I?"
"Yes,   I   Eaw a   couple of men   try
your door and then go away. "
"Dead sure?"'
"Certainly   I am sure, I  tell  yon I
saw them."
"That's funny. I was inside behind the closed doors all afternoon
and not one soul came near them."
The opponent did not discuss tne
matter after that sufficiently to ex-
plait how he knew by tae sight of thc
men that their orders were to be
large.
IJI'IICI.II.S TO THE! MINER.)
Montreal, June 14.���Montreal society is aghast at the shocking double
tragedy whicli happened yesterday afternoon when Mrs. John J.Hedpath of
Sherbrooke street, a widow, and her
son, 24 years of age,were found dying
In their liouse in M's. Red path's
room from bullet wounds in their
heads.' The son was taken to the
iiiisj itnl and was unable to make a
statement. The mother died within
an hour without making a statement.
Mrs. Redpath was one of the leading
ladies of Montreal society, and the
tragedy gave a terrible shock to all.
The son of Mrs. Redpath died at the
hospital shortly after midnight. The
family refuse any information and
even the police only heard of the matter by accident. The son was a bright
fellow of 24, and had just graduated
at McGill. Deceased was the widow
of John Redpath founder of the sugar
refinery business in Canadan, and was
very wealthy. The family have issued
a statement but from it nothing can
be learned of the details of the tragedy beyond the fact that the two people are dead. The family have refused all applications for details and
every effort is being* made, to have
us l'ttic publicity as possible drawn to
the tragedy. With that object in
view a strong effort is being made to
have the inquest private.
Later���It transpires in connection
with the Redpath trugedy that Clifford Redpath shot ills mother and
then put a bullet in his own head.
The two had been quarrelling. Young
Redpath is said tu have been under
the influence of liquor at the time.
Charlottetown, P. E. I., June 14.���
The prohibition act has been in force
a week and no conviction has been
yet obtained thereunder, although saloons nre openly violating the law.
The act onlj applies to Charlottetown
and haa not been submitted to vote cf
citizens before couiisg into force. It
is believed that a majority ot citizens
are opposed to Provincial prohibition
as being inefficient in its scone. There
are also grave doubts as to the constitutionality of the act and as a consequence its enforcement has received a
serious blow by the resolution of the
City Council on Monday night. The
Council decides that the police officers
must take no part in prosecutions
under the act. The enforcement
must be left with the Provincial Government. This ties up the act at the
present time and tbe outcome of the
conflict between the local and civic
authorities   is  watched with interest.
A LONG DOCKET.

BIG STRIKE
ON THE C.P.R.
JThe Trackmen of the Whole
System   Will   Soon
Go Out.
Local Officials Discredit the
Report and Men Will
Not Talk.
(SPECIALS TO THE MINER.)
Montreal, June 14.���The management of the 0. ' . R. having failed to
reply to the linal_deinands of the committee of trackmen, the men have decided to go on stiike on Monday. June
17. Trackmen all over the line from
the Atlantic to the Pacific will gooot.
Superintendent Downie of the C. P.
R. was seen yesterday afternoon by a
Miner representativ? who questioned
him about the report in yesterday's
Miner which staled that the trackmen
on the Eastern division would strike.
Mr. Downie (-aid that all he knew
about it was what appeared in The
Miner, but he did not tliink there was
any danger of it spreading out here
as the men seemed to be perfectly satisfied with their wages and hours.
The above dispatch was received too
late last night to be communicated to
Mr.  Downie.
Most of the trackmen on the Kootenay lines of the C. P. R. are union
men and it appears now that they are
to be called out by the central organization in order to back up the eastern men in their demands on the company. If this is true the striko will
be of huge proportions and seriously
handicap the road. In yesterday's
Miner a despatch stated that the men
would be assisted by tho engineers
and conductors. If this means a sympathetic striae hy those organizations
it is Impossible to tell what will happen unless the company speedily compromise with the trackmen.
It was impossible to learn anything
from the local trackmen yesterday
but it was gathered that they weie
closely watching developments at
Montreal. But none of them seemed
to expect the news contained In this
morning's despatch.
LEAVING FOR  COMAPLIX.
W. J. Astley has just turned out of
his workshop another handsome new
18 ft row boat, which he is adding to
his already laige supply of small
eraft.
R. G.   McLeod    Delighted   With   the
Lardo Country.
R, G. McLeod, who recently sold
out his share in the Royal hotel on
Stanley street, returned yesterday
from the Lardj district. He has
been in that locality during the last
few days and is so well pleased with
its prospects that he has bought ont
the Lardo hotel at Comapiix from J.
A. Magce who has been in that locality for the last live years. Ilis object
in selling out his interest in the property is because he has so many other
interests in the district that he found
it necessary to dovote his time to
them.
Mr. McLeod is very enthusiastic in
regard to the prospects and the future
of the country and states that now
claims of rich ore are being', staked
every day. One night as many as
forty claims were staked by moonlight and overy day Nelson people are
arriving in the district and the excitement is daily increasing. It is expected tbat a newspaper will be started
in Comapiix on thu first of the month
by a party from Revelstoke. The railway has   not   yet reached   that  place

for the team championship; three
lockets for individual play, and fuur
sets of solid gold cuff links.
The large semaphore put up by thc
C. P. R. started operations yesterday.
It Is nearly thirty feet high, and is
controlled by a wire Gained along
through pulleys attached to short
posts for some eight hundred feet tu
the entrance of tho yards, where the
old semaphore is situated. By means
of this approaching trains are notihed
of tbe condition of the main track,
when they arc a quarter of a mile
from tbe yards.
Toronto, June 14.���At a meeting of
the Toronto Clearing House held In
Toprnto Club to.tuy, Mr. Stanger, who
is retiring from the management of
the Hank of British North Ameiica
and secretaryship of the Clearing
House,WSB presented with a check for
81,000 as a mark of appreciation for
his services to the Clearing House during a largo number of years. Mr.
Stanger has occupied responsible positions in the Bunk of British North

others spoke iu appreciative tenne of
Mr. Stanger and his services to the
banking interests in Canada.
Toronto, June 14.���Absolute failure, so far lias marked excursions to
Buffalo from Canada to thcjl'un-American exposition. At an excursion on
Thursday, which was c.xpected_to have
attracted some 5,000 people, there
were not more than 500. These wero
chiefly from Toronto. The chief reason, it is assumed, is the lack of interest in the exposition.
Hamilton, June 14.���James nenigan
while riding to work on his bicycle
this morning was struck hy a trolley
car at the corner of York and James
strets, receiving injuries which caused bis death two hours later. Mr.
Honlgan was aged about 45, and employed as a clerk.

who has been hunting for her husband
throughout the City, has been sent
to tbe Robson district where it is
thought that some trace of the gentleman she was looking for could be had.
He is supposed to be working on the
section in that neighborhood, and the
good lady wns sent out to him yesterday. In any event it is thought that
the husband will take the lady off
the City's hands.

THAT MINIINli  COMMISSION.
It is many mouths now since it was
first suggested that the Federal Government should or would appoint a
Commission to investigate the raining
industry of the Dominion, anil especially of British Columbia. Latterly
nothing lias been heard of the matter.
but The Colonial Uoldflelds (iazette is
still in the belief that tbe suggestion
is to be earned ont. It is thought to
be regarded with special favor in
this Province, whose Government,
however, "have been very slow to
lealise tbe importance of making
known the mineral wealth of the
country." We are afraid our London
contemporary is doomed to disappointment. There will be no mining Commission. Since the matter was first
broached the governing authorities at
Ottawa have no doubt come into pos
.session of much new information on
tbe subject, and while this may not
be a sufficient excuse for abandoning
the idea it will likely be made to
seive.
The   idea of a Commission   has   always   been   regarded   with favor   in
Hritish   Columbia.    It   was   felt that
there mere many things affecting   the
industry in   this   Province,   which   it
was most desirable the Government at
Ottawa should know.    No d.;ubt Ministers are possessed of a greater knowledge of the conditions than they could
pretend to have a year ago; but   there
are   many  things   they   have  vet   to
learn, and which   can   only be ascertained with any degree of satisfaction
through means of a  Commission.    We
may   take, for   instance, the effect on
the industry   of   the   mining   laws of
the Province.    Ou this point   there !s
much dispute.    Those   who  are   most
directly affected   say the laws aie   in
many respects injurious to   them   and
prejudicial to the best interests of. the
industry.     The   Federal    authorities
have no   right,    it   is true, to meddle
with the laws   of the   Province,   and
even if   this   were ascertained beyond
doubt to be true, they could not afford
relief by legislation. Hut they can appoint a Commission with power to inquire into all conditions affecting the

THE METRIC SYSTEM.
The Lieutenant-Governor of Hritish
Columbia is a gentleman of many
virtues���more than arc usually found
iu the undisputed possession of one
man. Hut we do not __o~- that
among the number is to be reckoned
his infutuation for the metric system
of weights and measures. This has become a hobby of his. aud he never
loses an opportunity to trot it out
Not that be is singular in this, however, for it must be confessed that he
is in goodly company. There are quite
a number of admirers and advoeates
of the metric system scattered
thionghout the United Kingdom, the
United States, and Canada, but in
the propagation of their creed they
are not making much progress. The
most enthusiastic of them would have
to admit, if questioned, that tlie belief whioh embraces, so far as it is
concerned, is a plant of slow growth.
Some few years ago, when the dis
cussiou ol this question was In one of
its periodic revivals, l'rcf. Huxley,
jn The North American, demonstrated
tems, as systems only, without regard to tbeir practical connections.
We commend to his Honor the following matter-of-fact, business consideration, when next he takes up the subject; it is a paragraph from this Milwaukee letter: "Suppose the fiat goes
forth that we make the change to the
metric system next year. First, all
the scales, measuring rules, and measuring instruments, of whatever kind,
would be confiscated��� would have no
value only as relics. Much of the intricate and costly machinery for making such articles would be of no further use; our constructive literature
would have to be written over again.
All kinds of machinery, for making
special sizes of anything, such as for
bolts, nuts, sirews, rolled iron, pipes,
and tubes, etc., would be greatly ie
duced in value, if not made entirely
valueless. The same, of course, would
apply to the stock on hand; the greater part of it would become scrap.
But. the objector says, we should not
attempt this at once, but should take
time. That would only extend the
worry and annoyance over a longer
period."
part of the established system. Nothing is said of religious instruction,
but it is probable the authorities have
got a hint to shut their eyes tu whatever measure of it the Catholics may
determine as necessary in full satis-
faction of their conscientious scruples.

The editor of thc University of Toronto Monthly, himself a graduate,has
been going over the list of graduates
of a recent year, and selects the names
of thirty-one with whom he lias personal acquaintance. Of these, seventeen are either still in Canada or some

and twelve arc permanently settled
in thc United States. If we were to!

NELSON AND THE
LEAD REFINERY
Copsiderulilu discussion has tula n
place lately In Nelson concerning tl.e
probability of a lead refluery being
located here. The general trend of
opinion is that outside of either
coast, N-'son or Trull lias the greatest chance, and iliis opinion is well
founded. Trail's hopes aie basid
principally on the CI. P. It. already
operating a lend .smelting department
nl the smelter theie, that tho company
hue lately bought up a tract of land
iintnediata'l.v ail joining tlni present
.worlt-, through which the C A VI.
jura mill runs, thus providing the company, with an excellent silo on their
own pinpeit.v. ln Nelson the view
ll.tajien that this city's central position, greater accessibility from every
direction, proximity to tho principal
lqijd.produeing mines, better trans-
poyation, fuel, and po ���ver futilities
slioiilil entitle it to the refinery above
any other point in the interior. The
building of the refinery is of such vast
Importance not o'lly to tho town in
which it will he located but to the
district surrounding ns well, thut 1*
is strange that moie Interest has not
been taken. While under tlio present
action of thc American lead trust the
mining of lead in Hritish Columbia
is distinctly unpiofltable, the building of a refinery hole would put a
very different face on it. With a refinery to treat, the matte of the smelter* such an impetus would be given
to tho worliing of muny lead properties that arc now lying idle in the
Kootenays that it would alter the
whole position of trade in Hritish
Columbia.
' II the refinery comes to Nelson some
of .the changes mado by it would be
decidedly beneficial. In nil probability n smelter devoted to lead alo_e
would be built heie. It would make
Nelson the lead centre of Canada,
and ull lead produce.), in the Dominion would come heie for treatment.
In the Nolson district alouc some
twelve properties now unworhed
would be developed immediately. In
t|ie Slocan the effect of the refinery
wpuh! be to infuse new life through-
opt the camps. As uny improvement
ia the towns of the Kootenays must
necessurily effect Nelson, through it
being the wholesale centre of the interior, the good to be derived would
ppt only be direct and immediate but
Ipdirectly it woula he immense nnd
fur-reaching. It.would mean within
six months the employment of at least
two hundred more men in the city.
and trfe prospecting and searching of
the mountains bordering the lakes especially, in a manner  never equalled.
A iew departure of the C. P. R.
would ulso be of great assistance in
���*>. nection with the development of
silver-lend mining caused by thc refinery. Ore reaching Kootenay lane at
any point can now be placed direct
on ears, as the company send barges
to any place wished, either with or
without cars. Ily this menus great
expense in extra handling o* the ore
is avoided. If many of the numerous
silver-lead properties near both Kootenuy nnd Slocan lakes cun he worked
, at a profit, as would be the case were
, the refinery placed here, the question
of transportation alone would become
of great atlruntageto Nelson.
More Smelters would nndoubtcdly
follow the erection of a refinery
and they would be located as near the
refinery as their source of oie supply
would admit. Tins would, in
turn, mean the opening of u large
number of dry ore properties which at
present cannot bo   profitably   worked.
Many citizens are of the opinion
that the Hoard of Trade should take
immediate action regarding the refinery. It should bo ascertained if possible if thc C. P. K. intenils to erect
it and if so, what inducements Nelson
would hnve to bold ont to secure it.
It is u matter of vast importance to
Nelson to get the refinery nnd consequently worth working fur and paying for.

"WHAT WITCH?"
A Husband _ Question.
When a man. from coffee drinking
gets to such a condition that he cannot eat bieakfast without throwing it
up. it seems time to quit, but there
are thousands of weak-minded people
who have not logical brains enough
to understand that when an article of
food or drink produces such conditions
as these, it should be absolutely left
off.
A little woman   in liutte,  Montana,
Mrs.    l'iumauriee,   wiites   that    she
and her husband are a different   kind
of people.    They knew enough to quit
coffee when it had rapped   them hard.
She says,  "My husband was so   badly
ffected that he   ate   no  breakfast   for
three or four years.    He  would   often
try to ib'ink a few sips of   coffee   and
invariably threw it up.  When I'ostum
Food Coffee was biongbt to my attention   I tried   it   without having   any
faith in it, but when   I   found what a
delicious   beverage   it was when prepared   according   to   directions,   and
from trying it on myself  found   there
were no bad effects,I induced husband
to take   a cup   without  tel'ing him it
was tho Food Colfee.     He   objected at
first, saying that he   would be sure tu
throw    it   up,    but   when    I    insisted
upon   his   dying   it. it   agreed   with
him.    Morning after  morning I   gave
him    Postum     without    telling   him
that it was any   different   from ordi-;
nary    coffee.    His   stomach    quickly
recovered and he began   to   eat breakfast.    He asked   mc   one   morning   as
hejasked    for   a   second   cup   of    the
I'ostum "what   witch    bad taught me
to make such    delicious   coffee,"   and
where I "found some that would agree
with him'."'    Then I   (old him for the
first time that he had not heen drinking   coffee but Postum, which   had so
strengthened     his   stomach   that   he
could now   eat   as much breakfast   as
any one.
My two sislers were badly troubled
with stomach disorder but after leaving off coffee and taking I'ostum they
both recovered (heir appetities and
took'on considerable flesh. I wish
everyone could be indn:ed to use the
health giving, aromati I I'ostum.''

Baker street,which has been enlarged
and   entirely renovated.
The   Phair   hotel   steps which for-
| merly led up to the office   and   recep-
| tion ball were removed yesterday, and
the   entrance   is   now    by     Ihe   new

The fireworks for tbe Dominion
Day celebration have been ordered.
They include VuO pounds of red fire
which will produce a blaze of glory
un the lake during the carnival. The
display will be by long odds Ihe best
ever seen in the interior of Hritish
Columbia.
The interest in Ihe ladies' races in
thc Dominion Day regatta is increasing, and every day a number of tbe
fair sex are on the water engaged in
friendly rivaliy for buats and partners. Today if the weather changes
there will be another piaetice which
will be continued every day until
the races lake place. j

An example of horse sense was  seen
yest.rday   at the noon   hour   when   a
team of  horses   demonstrated the fact
that they knew enough to come in out
of the rain,   which is supposed   to   be
more than some two   legged   animals
are given credit for.  At the noon hour
a   couple   of   teams   were   tied   to  a,
wagon while   tbe   teamster:,   went to
dinner. One of the men had taken the
precaution to   unhitch  his team from
tbe wagon but tbe   other was left  attached   as   tbey   came in   from   their
work.    When   the   heavy rain   storm
commenced the latter team broke loose
made a rapid journey   up Cedar street
where they were still going when last
seen by a   leporter.    Luckily no   further harm   was   done than   a   broken
wagon pole.
The next few days will be busy ones
at   St. Joseph's    convent as   the midsummer examinations are  now   under
way.    It is   all   the more   interesting
on account of the fact   that   the   competition   for   prizes which have   been
awarded by citizens is one ofthe chief
features of the occasion. A gold medal
is   being offered by   Mr.   A.   Perrier.
A.    E.   Crease   is   offering   a   second
prize of 85 and a third   prize of a silver medal is being offered by a friend.
Iu   addition to tbe above   the   Sisters
are offering a number of oilier   prizes
consisting  of   medals  and illustrated
books.    A   silver medal is  offered   to
the convent   music   pupils.    Tbe   examinations will close about tbe end of
next   week   and it   is  expected   that
the summer  vacation will   commence
on the 2,th.    Prior   to the   closing of
the school for the holidays there   will
be a   public   distribution   of   prizes.
