FOR REGATTA
kJ_ Oog but cash prizeB were given.
Order of Races for the Big
Event Tomorrow Afternoon.
The ll-ui.club has decided to lay the
cuse before the Canadiun Amateur
Athletic Association, the governing
body In Canada, and have a hatch ot
Hun's anxious to become oarsmen reinstated iu the amateur ranks.
Will Be Held Opposite the Old
Ship Yards and Not Off
Lake Park.
The Boat Club regatta on Saturday
will not be held nil' Lake I'ark us was
.originally decided upon, as very little
of that pleasure resort still remains
above water. This doeB not interfere
with its advantages as a boat course
but make, it a failure from the
'Standpoint of the comfort of the club's
friends who are expected to turn out
In large numbers to witness the races
It has therefore been decided to
hold the races in the bay opposite the
old ship yards, west of the C. P. R.
-slip. There is an excellent course
there aud spectators who do not go
out on tbe lake in boats can get a
good view of the races from the C. P.
IS. track. The races commence at 1,80
tomorrow afternoon nnd the attractions are _o uumeious tbat it is expected the finals will be rowed about 5
o'clock.
The executive committee of the Boat
Club met last evening and made final
arrangements for the regatta. It
promises to be a most enjoyable social
function as well as an important sport
ing event. The C. P. Ii. nnd Mr.
Procter's house boats will be moored
along tbe course and on Hi's formei
tea will De served during the afternoon. The ladies who are on tie lake
will greatly please the.officers of the
ol .b by visiting the houseboat and
enjoying a cup of tea. The steamer
Moyie will be out with the It. M. IS.
band on board an.I the races will bu
followed. If the weather is good the
lake will no doubt be covered with
���mall eraft.
A.M. Johnson will occupy the arduous position of referee and clerk of
the course, A. li. Buchanan and II.
H. Playford will be starters, W. D.
. Downie and T. 0. Procter judges and
��� Harold Selous "ill look after the
special events���the   ladies' races,  eto.
The crews, nine in number, will
race as follows: Fletcher vs. Dewar,
Friday evening, 7 p. ui.
Hodge vs.   Winner of above,  Satur-
. day 1.30 p. m.
..Day vs. Bevan, 2 p.m.
Hedley vs. Winter, 2.30 p. m.
Ford vs. Thomson, 3 p. m.
Semi-finals, 3.30 and 4 p. in.
Finals, 4.30.
Day's crew is  Btill favorite but the]
quartettes are bo evenly  matched that
tbe.,"talent"   is   by   no  means  emphatic in playing uny favorite.
The Boat Club has prospered wonderfully tbis si'iison. Last night about
thirty applicants were elected members which swells the roll to near the
. two hundred mark. Two new lap-
streaks will be shipped on the 15th
and will be us id for the first time at
the Dominion Day regatta. Thev
will double the club's supply of bouts
and will allow four crews to practice
at once The. club is affiliated with
the North Pacific Association of Amateur Oaismen and is making a big
effort to have next year's regatta of
that organisation held here. If successful tbe club will have as its guests
on thut occasion crews from Portland,
lacoma, Seattle, Victoria, Vai .Oliver,
Winnipeg and perhaps other places.
Certainly no other city on earth can
boast �� better course. But the club
will have to receive very hearty support from the public as shells will
bave to be purchased to enable the
oarsmen of Nelson to compete with
outside eiews and a club house should
be built on the lake as the club eacnot
completely prosper without a com-
fottable home of its own. An effort
will be made to send a crew to. the
���Coast in July to compete at the annual regatta of the association. This
is not being done- with any great
hope ot carrying off the championship
but to assist Nelson's efforts to secure the next regatta.
Joining the association means that
the amateur definition must be lived
upto closely. In Nelsou it has been
the custom for years to offer cash
prizes for athletic events and many
young men have  become professionals
BOERS  DEFEATED.
Thirty-Seven Killed, 100 PrisonerB,

From Archbishop in Civil
Courts. !
Quebec, June 0.���It is announced
that II. M. S. Ophir, witn the Duke
and Duchess of York on hoard will be
escorted to Quebec by no less than
ten British frigates, und it is rumored
that other foreign warships will also
be in port at the time.
Montreal, June 5.���Civil proceedings, in contemplation on behalf of
Prof. Steen with the object of seeur-,
ing restitution of his clerical rights,
will be commenced forthwith. The
onse iB in the hands of l.nllciir and
MaoDougnll, advocates, who are taking necessary steps preparatory to an
acton against the Archbishop for depriving Prof. Steen of his civil status
and means of livlihood by piohibiting
bim from the performance of his cler
ioal functions In tbe diocese of Montreal. These proceedings are understood to be altogether apart from any
action that, may be taken in the synod
or other church courts.
Jean Edouard Delpit is taking up
his residence in Baltimore. Since
Judge Archibald decided in favor of
Mrs. Delpit, the plaintiff appears to
have given up hope of obtaining a
judicial separation under British
law. A year's residence in Maryland
enables one to take advantage of the
divorce laws of that state. Mrs. Dol-
pit'i lawyers declare that they will
fight divorce in whatever state it i��
brought and points out Delpit's action is illogical. He pretended before
the courts in thiB country that he had
never, been . married and now he
seeks-annulment of tbe marriage.

TO   THE   CROW'S   NEST  FIELDS.
Great Northern to Build a Line to
the Fernie Collorles.
;Great FallB, Mont., June 0.���The
organization of the Montana A Great
Northern Railway company, articles
of Incorporation of which were, filed
with tbe county clerk and recorder in:
the county today, is significant as
confirming the rumors of the past six
months that the Great Northern had
acquired control of the Crow'B Nest
Pass coal fields across the boundary
line, and of vast timber interests in
the   northwestern   part of this  slate.
It was announced some time agio
that James J. Hill had purchased tbe
Crow's Nest Pass coal fields for 85,-
000,000 and that the construction of a
line from KaliBpel to that property
was but a question of a short time.- ....
James N. Hill, E. Sawyer and M.
D. Qrover of Minnesota, and G. T.
Ross and I. Parker Ver.ey of Montana
are named as the incorporators of the
new road, which ie practically an extension of the Great Northern into its
newly acquired possessions. Tbe capital Btock is 810,000,000, divided into
100,000 shares of a par value of fioo
each, fully paid   and   non-assessable,
The proposed road is to extend; from
Kalispel, Mont., on "the Great Northern main line in a northerly.direction
to the Canadian boundary and thence
to the  Crow's Nest county.
One of thc first objects of Interest
shown to visitors in Nelson, or if not
pointed out, soon noticed by tbem,are
the beautiful private gardens and
lawns with which thc city everywhere is blest. In many of the residential blocks a house which has not
a handsome garden attached is a rarity. The amount of care and work
thnt Is expended each season hy various parties in Nelson on their gardens
is immense, and the competition in
certain lines of business here is nothing ns intense as the rivalry between
some of the business men as to who
shall have the choicest and most di.
versified showing of buehes or shrubs,
or whatever'their puiticular bobby
may be. Mr. D. McCreath, lloiist and
proprietor of the greenhouses op the
corner of Cedar and Front .treat, when
asked as to what varieties of plants
gave the ..host satisfaction io town
stated that verbenas and belitropcs
grew very well, geraniums also grew
well but were apt not to blossom so
well, the cool nights affecting them.
Almost all elassts of annuals are easy
to grow here, while for roses, the conditions, from, the results., achieved,
seemed to be unequalled. Roses equal
to any raised in thc old country could
be grown in - Nelson easier than,
piobably, anywhere in Canada,. For
shrubs the conditions were also very
good, certain varieties that could not
be grown in even Southern Ontario
doing remarkably well in many Nelson gardens. Foliage plants did not
grow as well us at the coast, but they
were one of the  few exceptions.
A walk up Stanley street and along
some of the cross streets amply confirmed Mr. McCreath'a statement, as it
would be difficult to find a city anything like the size of Nelson in which
so many varieties of Dowering plants
and shrubs could be found. In Mr..
F. Fletcher's garden some beautiful
rhododendrons and double-flowering
red hawthorns were observed which it
would be hard to equal in any locality. A. II. Buchanan has a number
of horse-chestnuts and maples which
are coming along nicely. This spring
a great many horse-chestnut and maple treeB were brought into Neleon.
The horse-chestnut seems to grow
better in Nelsou.than in Ontario; the
maple, if it survives the first year
also thrives well, but some wbo had
tried them lost many of the young
trees through not wateri.g them
sufficiently.
Mr. T. J. Sims has une of tbe most
select collections of plants in- town,
embracing many tropical and semi-
tropical specimens of great beauty.
Dr.,LaBau has a very choice showing of spring bulbs, and ulso a number of .beautiful loses coining out,
besides many flowering plants.
Mr. R. Roisterer has a large num-
biir-oi spring bulbs,- some of which
were of exceptional beauty, and perfume.
Messrs. Lawrence, Hodge and Sherwood also have gardens to be proud of.
These; were a few of the gardens
noticed in a hasty survey, but nearly
a hundred were counted that were
well worthy of.' special mention if
space allowed. A lover of flowers
Could not spend a more interesting
day than in looking over the-gardens
to be seen in almost any of tbe residential streets. When it comes to
lawns Nelson is again well to the
front. Looking after gardens and
lawns here is quite a trade, a considerable number of men being employed during the season here at nothing
else, although the results achieved by
the "professionals" cannot beat what
many of the amateurs have to show
as a result of their evening and holiday labors. The present spring has
been a very cold and backward one,
but despite this, many of ths lawns
with their surrounding borders of
flowers are already veritable beauty
spots. There is not,as far as observed,
a single street in the city without
some   of" these   beautiful   gardens to(
show the tuste nnd enterprise of tlie
owners. Even in Fairview und other
suburbs, beforo houses where the
paint Is scarcely dry are to lie seen
beds of gorgeous punsies, and other
flowers. A great many of thu plants
nnd shrubs are imported from tbe
Coast and Ontario, but the locul
dealers, notwithstanding tbis. did a
surprisingly large trade this .ear in
cuttings, plants and seeds. If Nelson
citizens keep on us at present, in a
few years the city will be able to
claim the title not only of the Queen
City of the Kootenays,but also that of
the Garden City of thc Interior.
When it is considered from what,
in tbe beginning, unpromising looking soil nil this hns been evolved,it is
indeed a strong tribute to the energy
and taste of the citizens.

A social and concert was given last
night by the Salvation Army at their
barrack? in aid of the Childrens' .Self-

engineered by the children, who collected the cakes and refreshments
served them and rendered un interesting programme. The recitations of
Nellie Lackey, Roy Gill. Delia Mc-
L aughlin, Olive Hodge, und Winnie
Foote, were especially worthy of mention. All- present seemed to have a
thoroughly good time.
GENERALLY OBSERVED���
Some of the stoies that remained
open a week ago in spite of tbeir
agreement to close on Thursday after
noo.s during the summer had tlieii
blinds idrawn down yesterday and

generally observed than at any time

IT RAINED���
One of the half-day holiday enthusiasts,, who bad planned it holiday yesterday and was detained on account
of the rain, consoled himself by n
poetical abuse of the weather In tho
following metre: While I pondered,
wet and weary,nursing up a wondrous
theory aa to whether there waB sunshine, any -sunshine as of yore, presently there came a tapping, tapping
as if someone rapping, rapping at my
chamber door. "What it is?'.'I yelled,
and jumping, while my heart went
thumping, thumping, wide I pushed
the chamber door: There I saw tne
raindrops slapping, slapping, rapping
at the door. "Holy Smoke" was
what I uttered yes, 'Twas "holy
smoke" I muttered, "it ia only raining more."

LOOK ALSO AT THE OTHER SIDE.
Mention was made in these columns yesterday that a correspondent,
presumably a householder, was com-
plaining of retail prices in Nelson,
leferilug particularly to groceries
and fresh meats. The subject thus
raised is an interesting one to citizens
generally, and if there is any reasonable oanse for the complaint made
the matter is a fitting one for public
discussion. The Miner does not believe there is any just ground for it.
People who come here from the far
Eastern Provinces, where living is
cheap in comparison, expect to sell
their time and services at British Columbia prices and to pay Eastern
prices for what they have to buy. If
they insist on paying Ont. rio prices
for butter aud eggs, let them first, to
sho t tbeir consistency, agree co accept the Ontario wage for their labor.
All things .onsidered, the conditions affecting the economics of the
household in Nelson are based on
lines that are fairly balanced and
consistent one with the other. And
it is only by taking all the circum-
stnsoesjnto conaideralion that we oan
form any thing like a just conclusion. To begin with, we are far from
our natural markets for nearly every
necessary of life. We pay heavy
freight rates, and in conesquence
prices bave to be put up. In carrying on his business the retail merchant here is at an expense never
dreamt of in the East, and if he is to
live at all he must put on profit
enough to cover it. In whatever di-
reation he turns���his rent, his light.
his help���he find, higher expenses.
The wonder to many has been that, in
view of the greater cost of living and
of doing business in Nelson, tlio staple
articles of household consumption are
sold as cheaply as they are. There
may bo ground for complaint, and if
so maintained we shall gladly give
spaco'for its discussion; but with our
present information we are bound to
say that retail dealers in all lines of
business are as moderate in tlieir
charges as cun be expected under the
ciicurastances.
Like most other questions, this has
its two sides, and we shall be glad to
refer those inclined to grumble at local prices to the oth.r side of this
one. Take our merchants as a class
and it will be readily admitted they
are men of high character; no town
in Canada has their superior. They
are here to do business, to help build
the town and prow up with it. They
go on the principle of living and let
live. They charge others no more in
proportion than they hnve themelvcH
to pay. If we cannot build np a merchant class in Nelson, we cannot build
up a town, for the one is as essential
to tha other ns the lungs are to the
human body. Yet there are men and
women, heads of honteholds here,
who send to Montreal and Toronto for
goods they can get from or through
their own merchants, the equal lu
quality and, all expenses counted,
with little if any difference in price.
That is not Just to our own merchants, and II Is Injurious to the
town. The money made in Nelson
should, as far as possible, he spent in
Nelson, If we do not help each other
we cannot be said to have community
of Int rest, and ate building on a
foundation of sand. Dealers in Toronto and Montreal do no build thu
sewers und make the streets in Nelson; it is the people here who arc
taxed foi these things, and we should
help each other to bear the burden
as lightly as possible. The man who
lives on the City, and who goes out of
the City to buy what can be had
here, is not a good citizen.

Hudson's Bay Company.
The most we can ascertain from
the Winnipeg papers, in regard to the
report that thc I.ieutenant-Oovernor
is interfering with the action of h's
Cabinet in dismissing Civil Servants,
is that It is a mere rumor and nothing else. The tlovernor knows, _nd
bis Ministois know; hut   they   do net
tell. If they have come to "holts"
on the question, they are keeping the
information to themselves. The report, however, is very generally believed, and already the newspapers
are instructing their readers on ali
the fine constitutional points involved
in the matter. No one of any sense,
however, need trouble his head about
the constitution; we all know what
it has to say on tbe point. The question is whether the practice of dis
missing employe* of one party to
make room for office seekers of the
other is in vogue, and practised so
openly as to becomge a scandal If it
s, the Governor is right in putting
down his foot and declaring tbat there
shall be no more dismissals without
good cause assigned. The spoils system is an abominable system, and the
way to introduce it is to pursue the
methods attributed to the Roblin Government in Manitoba. We see it suggested that Mr. Roblin bimself welcomes the interposition of the Governor, as tbe life is being dogged out of
him by heelers of the party looking
for soft jobs. If we ever get the
spoils system it will come from below ;
not -from the men who have the appointing power, but from the men
hungry for appointments.
Refeiring to the lively little School
squabble that has been going on in
that town, The Vancouver Provinse
says: "Apart altogether from the
merits of thut dispute it may be said
that the Vancouver High School-
Vancouver College as it is called since
its affiliation with McGill University
���ranks easily as the premier educational institution of the Province.
Like other good things, however, it
'comes high.' The cost of preparing
students for their first year examination at McGill is necessarily large,
and while realising to the fullest extent the signal advantages which that
higher educations gives to many
young people in this city. The Province does not believe that the public
should bear the full cost of it." It
will not come in this generation, and
perhaps not in the next, but the Canadian people will one day awaken to
the fact that It is no part of the duty
of the State to keep our boys and girls
in tlie education machine, until turned out full Hedged graduates of colleges and universities
While thc American papers are exercising themselves over the question
as to whether or not the constitution
follows the Hag, Britishers can take
a grain of, perhaps, selfish, satisfaction out of the fact that the Constitution follows the Shamrock in the
matter of broken spars and rigging.

THB HOLD UPS SENT UP,
Rollan and Tlloomlleld Will Stind
Tbeir Trial at tbe Next Assize. Z
* The case against the two prisoners
now in the lock-up on tbe charge of
ho ding up Charles Johnson on Sunday morning last came up for beari-g
at the police court again yesterday
morning in the presence of a crowded
court, and the result is that tbe prisoners are consigned lo the Provincial
gaol where tbey will be incarcerated
until _tbe fall assize to stand their
trial. The chief witness called at tho
morning sitting was Chief Jarvis,
who was subjected to a lengthy cross
examination, S. S. Taylor acting
for the defence and P. Wilson, of llnl-
liher at Wilon, for tbe prosecution.
During tbe course of tlie cross examination the counsel for tbe defence
endeavored to prove that the Chief of
Police bad merely arrested tbo prisoners on suspicion, without having
the least evidence for doing so. A
long discussion occurred on such in
teresting and relevant subjects as
watch chains, hats, clothes and nose
bruises, which occupied the full lime
of the court until the noon an|ourn-
nient. A few minutes befoie the
court adjourned Alex Gardener was
called in to give evidence in regard to
the fact that llloomfielu bad lust bis
"dice-box" and was then wearing a
soit felt bat instead of tbe hard one
he bad been accustomed io wear. Witness was put through a severe cross-
examination by tbe defendants' counsel with the obvious intention of discrediting the evioence which was
picsonted by the pioseeution.
Julius Reisterer was then recalled
by Magistrate Crease who wished to
reassuie himself in regard to tbe lime
of witnesses having .-.ecu tbo prisoners
on Lake street.
After the adjournment Mr. Taylor
addressed tbe court and claimed that
the evidence adduced, by the witnesses
did not carry any evidence of guilt
aud with the exception of Roisterer's
evidence there was nothing incriminating and wa_ of such a character
that no jury in the land could be
found to convict thc prisoners on the
strength of it.
Mr. Wilson, in summarising the
evidence, claimed that the testimony
of Bome of the witnesses was very
damaging and that the prisoners were
not entitled to acquittal and asked
that they, be sent up for trial.
Magistrate Crease, in summing up
the ease, admitted that the evidence
of the man Johnson was not at all
satisfactory and wns indeed stupid,
but there appeared to be no doubt
thut he had been assaulted and also
robbed, lie claimed on the other
hand that the evidence of the witness
Reisterer had been given in such a
straightforward, intelligent manner,
and so manifestly bore the ball mark
of veracity that be would have to
commit tbe prisoners to the common
goal, there to await their trial at. the
first court of jouipetent jurisdiction
Tbe prioner Rollun is au intelligent
looking man of respectable appearance,Is well dressed and about twenty-
five years of age. The man BloomHeld

hinn and cariys around with him a

WHITE   MAN   TURNED   YELLOW.
Great consternation was felt by the
friends of M.A.Uogarty of Lexington,
Ky., when they saw he was turning
yellow. His skin slowly changed
color, also his eyes, and he suffered
terribly, nis malady was Yellow
Jaundice. He was treated by the
best doctors, but without benefit.
Then he was advised to try Electiic
Hitters, tbe wonderful Stomach and
Liver remedy, and be writes: "After
takinf; two bottles I was wholly
cured." A trial proves its matchless merit for all Stomach, Liver and
Kidney troubles. Only '-5c. Sold by
Canada Drug at Hook Co.
A LUCKY KIND.
What proved to be a more profitable find than gold happened the other day to a traveller from San Francisco, while at Innch in one of the
leading restaurants in Nelson, lie
ordered a portion of Pumpkin pie,
when to his astonishment his appe-
titie, which he had 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. Thc cook informs us
that it was made from "The Morse
Pumpkin Flour." None other just as
good.    Insist on "The Morse llrand."

down here expressly to see tbe town,
and that he was very much pleased
with tbe place. He was very enthusiastic over the beauty of the town rnd
the great future which he thinks is
ahead of it. Mr. Tierney was accompanied by his son, who left the following morning for ibe Sinailka*

TISSUE DECORATIONS���
The Thomson Stationery Co. are
showing a very attractive thing in tissue decorations, one that will doubtless be regarded with thankfulness

colors, that readily lends itself to all
sorts of striking and handsome combinations in either the interior or exterior d.coration ofa building. It can
be made into wreaths, stars, plumes
St. George's crosses, and shields, and
to those who intend to compete for
the window and float prizeB at the
approchlng cetebartion it will prove
simply invaluable. Fraternal Societies, clubs, unions, and organizations
of every kind and variety can be accommodated with any combination oi
colors that fay be desired. It is so
ornamental, aud at tbeaame time so
cheap, that there is no .doubt it will
be much in request for Dominion Day.

A notice i_ appearing in the Gazette
which states that:    ''Notice is hereby
given that the reservation placed qn,
that particular parcel of land, which
may be described as commencing at
the northeast corner of Township (8a)
Eight A.' Kootenay district, which fs
also the northeast corner of Block 1-,
granted to the Nelson at Fort-Shep-
pard Railway company by Crown
grant dated 8th March. 1895-. tftenee
due east 15 miles; thence due-.aouth to
the International Boundary .ithflnce
due west along said boundary IB
miles; thence north to tlie place of
commencement, notice w hereof was
published in the British Columbia
Gazette, and dated 7tb May, 1896, is
hereby rescinded." ^_
This is a notice of n.uch interest
settlers. The lands embraced in tb<
reservation mentioned are included
in a square of whicli the west line
follows close to tlje Columbia river,
taking ir. the townsites of -Waneta,
Sayward,- Beaver, Champion and-.several other sma-M "pUcee-,- Th~�� land
was reserved in 1895 and since that
date has not been open for either pre;
emption or sale. Before the reservation was-placed on it, a number of
pre-emptions had been made, but
with the exception of -those,- and the
regular reservations on Crown Land,
this will be all open for pre-emption
or sale on August 28tb, 1901. A lot
of drst class agricultural land is included in tn is tiact, tha valley oi the
Pend O'Reille running for sixteen
miles through it, and the land on the
east bank of the Columbia for sixteen
miles north of the International
boundary also being included. Besides the two large rivers,' numerous
small streams traverse it everywhere.
The Nelson A Fort Sheppard railway runs through the middle of it,
"hile a wagon road runs from Sayward nortb to opposite Trail, on the
0. P. R. The Dewdney trail, also
crosses the'tract diagonally. ��\.wagon
road from Northport follows the
Pend O'Reille river up from tbe
mouth. The country is comparatively'
open, and easy of access.
At Sayward are several extensive
ranches, in which early-vegetables
are grown under glass, large shipments of which are-received in Nelson. The climate is slightly milder
than here.
- Tbesettlei. already nr are doing
well, the soil and climate being well
adapted for agriculture. Prospecting
bus been active In tbe Peiid 0'I'.eil|e
country for some years, and a large
number of men are employed on various properties in the vicinity.
