Henley, July 5.���After a magnificent race today the Grand Challenge
cup was won by th. Leander erew,
who defeated the eight of Pennslvanla
University by one length. The attendance was very huge as tbe final
for the Grand Challenge was looked
upon as the event ot the Henley week.
The Pennsylvanians reached their
boathouse at 1.10 o'clock, apparently
as fit as possible. While many of the
followers of the red and blue showed
marks of the intense strain ol the
final minutes, the members of the
crew stripped, chatted and laughed as
coolly as though going out for practice. Ellis Ward, the American
coach, placed a minatme American
���lag upon; the rudder of bis boat, as
tbe coxswain came to the boat house
and said to Smith, "Keep that as far
ahead, my boy',  as you can."
Both the Leander and Pennsylvania crews at the start showed no
trace of neivousness and were sent
away in capital style, the Pennsylvania rowing 43 to the minute and
the Leanders 42. At the end of Temple Island the Americans led by three
men. At Fawley the time was 3
minutes 25 2-5 seconds,with the Leanders threo feet ahead. From there it
was ding dong, a splendid struggle,
out of which the LeanocrS gained
inch bv inch. The mile was reached
in 5 minutes and 15 Beconds with the
Leanders half a length in the lead,
which they increased to three-quarters
of a length at the Isthmian. The
Pennsylvania crew made a desperate
spurt but it was not good and two
men weakened peiceptihly opposite
the grandstand. Tlie Leanders won
by a length, time 7 minutes 4 4-5 see-

"It was a grand race," said Coach
Ward, as the Leanders crossed the
finieh _line. "We were simply out-

It certainly was the best and moat
exciting contest ever seen at Henley.
There waa scarcely tbe advantage of
three feet between them half way
down. The cheering for the flon-
tettants ae they struggled for the
laed, was terriffic. Even Henley had
never before heard such wild applause as greeted the Pennsylvanians
and the Leanders all down the course
and the cheering was delirious fiom

latter's boat crossed the line at the
finish ahead of the Pennsylvania.

No move has yet been made towards
putting through the road from Nelson
to connect with the Poorman road
near Kootenay CroFsing. The present
trail, although ir. bad condition, sees
a great deal of traffic, as besides pack
trains whi.i are continually traversing it, llo'iks of sheep and herds "of
cattle are driven over it. The opening
up of this road, besides giving a considerable business to Nelson merchants
from the mines on 49-Ureelc and adjoining countiy, much of which at
present goes to other points, will
open up somo good ranching land extending soutli from the Crossing towards Robson.
Nelson's record in the line of tire
protection has been an enviable one.
Since the volunteer brigade was first
started every fire has been got under
control before tbe building was de
Btroyed or even badly injured. In
several of the fires that huve occurred
in Nelson tbe deadly element has got
a' strong hold and the quick and masterly way it has been handled has
evoked much favorable comment. The
two fires of recent dates that were
the most threatening for a time were
those that occurred in the Burns'
block, before it was quite completed,
and in the Nelson Furniture com.
pany's store. In the first of these the
fire was caused by a candie which had
been left burning in a darkroom in
the cold storage plant on the second
floor while the workmen went to dinner. Tbe candle evidently burned
down and fell over, setting fire to a
lot of shavings, and eventually to the
building. This fire was in progress
lor an hour before it was discovered,
and was a very difficult one to handle. In the fire at the Nelson Furniture Oil's premises the fire got in
among a lot uf highly inflammable
goods, in the shape of newly varnished furniture, aud the saving of the
building was remarkably good work.
The first regular fire brigade in Nelson was organized in tbe winter of
1896-7, the service before that date
having consisted of a volunteer
bucket brigade of any and all who
were available. Chief Calkin was the
first to take charge of the brigade,
which at the outset consisted of fourteen volunteers, with two I'.obo carts
as equipment. The men rrctived
82.50 for every time they turned out
to a call, either practise or a fire, this
system of paying being kept up till
the spring of the present year.
When the Klondike rush . came on
Chief Calkin resigned his post to go to
the north, and was succeeded by
Chief Thompson, who held office till
last spring, when he went with the
Baden-Powell Constabulary to South
Africa. During his regime two more
volunteers and a hook and ladder
truck with a team of horses were add
ed to the brigade. A mess was also
put in at the fire ball, at which
most of the men arranged to get their
meals. Three bed rooms were added
to the building for the convenience of
those who wished to sleep there, also
a lavatory. Later a combination
chemical and hose wagon was purchased from the Chicago Fire Extinguisher Manufacturing Co., of Chicago, 111 , capable of carrying 1,000
fcut of hose and a fifty gallon chemical tank, always ready for immediate
Last spring, owing to various disagreements a turnover oceuircd in the
brigade, aud on the resignation of
Chief Thompson, Mr. T. L, Lillie was
brought over from the ('nasi as an experienced and able fire chief to take
charge. With Mr. Thompson a num-
lier of the men composing the brigade
also resigned, and new rnes were put
on. Chief Lillie reduced the force to
thirteen men, of whom three are always on duty, viz.: Chief T. L. Lillie and H. Stutter and J. Boyd.
Besides these there are ten volunteers,
wbo are now paid by tbe month, 815,
with a fine of 82 tit missing a call.
The present members of the brigade
are, Captain J. J. Chambers, Lieut.
J. R. Campbell, and the hose men,
K. Douglas, J. Thompson, J. McLeod, J. J. Foote, H. Houston, Thomas Lillie, R. Thompson, aud C. Lou-
din. The object of paying the men
hy the month, is to make the organ!/,
atlon more perfect, and introduce better discipline than was possible under
the old system.

by the members of the brigade, some

Medicine Hat and Nelson Teams
Will Meet at 3,30 O'clock,
Great interest is being taken iu the
lacroBSe match���Medicine Hat vs. Nelson���which is to take place at thc recreation grounds at 3 o'clock this afternoon. The magnificent game put
up by these two teams when they
played to a tie on Tuesday afternoon
last leads everyone to expect a better
exhibition of the national game this
afternoon than was ever seen before
in Nelson. Two teams could not be
more evenly matched than these and
each plays the game in a brilliant,
fast and scientific manner. The Medicine Hat men returned last evening
from Grand F'orks where they scored
a victory on Thursday and are ready
to play the game of their lives this
afternoon. A few changes are likely
to be made in^the Nelson team which
should have the effect of strengthening it.
The admission fee will be 25 cents
and the R. M. 11. band will supply
music during the game.
Tlie members of the Medicine Hat
lacrosse team who returned, from
Grand Forks last evening repoit that
they had a very enjoyable trip and
were treated to the best the town provided. In reference to the game the
players say that while it was not as
fast as Tuesday's game here it was
still fast enough to leave them a bit
stiffened up. Grand Forks scored the
first game in about ten minutes .and
the visitors followed with two games
before halt time. In the first minute of the second half the Hat team
addul another to their score and fifteen minutes before timo was up the
Grand Forks team also scored. This
made it 3 to 2 in favor of the visitors
and the home team made a most determined effort to even matters. It
became very exciting by a series of
brilliant rushes on the part of Grand
Forks and the defensive but aggressive work of Medicine Hat. Then
was a very large attendance and en-
thusiasm ran very   high.
The Nelson team will be as follows: A. Jeff, goal; Farrell, point;
Frazer, cover point Vanstone, 1st
defence; Thompson, 2nd defence;
Hawkins, 3rd defence; I'ernei, ecn-
are; McNicoll, 3rd home; 0. Jeffs, 2nd
home; Archibald, 1st home; Whittet,
outside home; Spry, inside home.

When it was first announced that
the Canadian Pacific Company would
build and opeiate t!:e lead refinery
which the Federal Government has
offered to bonus, The Miner expressed
the opinion that the Government
would be ieluctant to enter into an
agreement to pay the bounties to a
railway corporation. There appeared
very good reasons why no company
should be given a monopoly of the lead
Industry of the Kootenays. Il may be
that The Miner was all wrong, and
that the Government will be happy to
encourage the Canadian Pacific Company to undertake tne enterprise. We
do not get that impression, however,
from a leadei in The Toronto Globe
on freight and smelting charges, suggested by the proceedings at a meeting of the North Star Mining Company. "When the railways," it
says, "combine their business as common carriers with that of smelting
ores, it is difficult to arnve at a basis
for determining what charges are fair
and what are unfair." The meeting
referred to was of the same opinion.
Tlie cost of freight and treatment to
tlie North Star has been so heavy that
the ina~agemeut bave decided to suspend production until better terms
can be obtained. This suggests remarks to The Globe whicli can only
mean that the Government in awakening to the necessity of taking the
railway companies in hand and subjecting them to iather rigorous supervision. "The people have a right to
see that the highways are not manipulated in the interests of any smelting enterprise. The Canadian pet,pie
will pay a bounty of live dollars per
ton on all the lead smelted in the Dominion next year, aud under existing
contlitions the entire amount may be
absorbed in railway charges, leaving
the smelting und mining industries
no better off than without the public
aid." If the Government is alarmed
to the point of legislating because of
combined freight and smelting
charges, it will not be anxious to
aggravate the evil by throwing into
the railway pot the refining interest
as well.
From these and othei remarks thai
have appeared, with a sort of semiofficial authority, it would s.em to
be the Intention of the (Iovernment
and Parliament to take early steps to

Such a very unusual course could
not be taken without what must have
appeared to the Committee as just
cause or provocation. What was if.'
We again invite the members of the
Committee.to whom was entrusted the
handling of several thousands of dollars of public money for public purposes, to explain. In case they may
have forgotten they were members,
we again publish the names: Frank-

Come, gentlemen; out with    it.
During the thirty-four years of
Confederation our population has increased from 3. nOo.Win to 5,500,11011;
consolidated revenue has incieased
from $13,087,928 to 851,019,944; railway mileage, from .,0sT to 17,358;
postoftices, from 3.038 to 9,027; letters,
from 18,100,000 to 178,292.510; note
circulation, bank and Dominion, from
1(10,800,980 to 809,620,3.8; saving bank
deposits from $1.50 per bead to S12.45;
other Dank deposits, from S33.053.359
to .227,250,710; life insurance, from
835.0SII.U82 to 84114.135,59.'); gold pi-eduction from 83,013,431 to 821,200,437 ;
tonnage of seagoing vessels, inwards,
from 2,104,0119 to 7.202.721. Let us
not say that Canada is a countiy cf
slow growth. It is doing excellently.
If our population is a little disappointing, we should at least be gratified at the progress made in every
other direction. Our temperance
friends will rejoice to know that during thc same period the consumption
of spirits per head has decreased from
1.12 gallons to .00, and that Canada
today is one of the most temperate
countries in the world. Look at it
as we will, Canadians have every reason to be pioud of their country.

There nre two features about the
transaction reported yesterday in
these columns that are extremely gratifying. One is that the town and
district are fortunate in possessing
an asociation like the Imperial Development Syndicate, that has the intelligence, the enterprise, and the
means to seek out promising proper-
tie and to demonstrate what is in
them. Thc other is that we have also
a company-, the London ,. B. C,
with tlie capital to take them up
and work them. Mining, after all,
in the Kootenay is In its infancy;
who cau tell how magnificent tlie de-
velopinent may be, with such a strong
company, managed with the courage
anil enterprise that at present characterise it, prepared to face bdj- proposition that can offer good return*?
It is not unlikely that the London c.
II. C. will prove to this district all
that the biggest operating companies
have been to the Hand.

We nave the MineB, and    You    Ilave
the Money.
So saj'B Mr. R. C Campbell-Johnston in a letter published in tbe London Financial News, of lecent date.
After describing the geographical position of tho Kootenay district, the
letter proceeds:
'"Ihe predominant mineral���and
that very plentiful���is silver-lead, as
wet ores (currying, say, over 88 per
cent, metallic lead) in a slate formation, and dry ores (carrying, say, 3
per cent, lead, in granite formation.
Tlie more particular camps are the
Slocan, Springer Creek, Ainsworth,
Eaelo, Moyie. Klmberley, Fort Steele,
Windermere, East and West Lardo,
and otburs. Development has already
blocked out and marketed immense
amounts of ore, tlie St. Eugene mine
being the largest silver-lead mine In
America. The output of load for
moo was 88,090,877���three times as
miiihai, in l'BOO. Thc silver output
was 88,308,000, or a total of silver and
lead' of nearly $5,000,000. This
large Increase for Inst year was due to
mote railway facilities, such as the,
opening of the Crow's Nest Pass
road; with the Lardo road built this
year, and the Windermere di strict to
follow, double as much lead will be
thrown on the market shortly. The
end of this development, and the Immense amount of marketable lead,
will   not   be   in   sight   for   scores of
���   ���  ���
Slocan was the first great camp.
Prospectors discovered very large
outcrops of clean galena going
70 per cent, lead aud 150 oz.
silver on the surface iu shines,
wliich have been shipped without
sufficient further development. There
were then uo trails, roads, houses, or
communication nearer than one or
two small Bat-bottomed steamers on
Kootenay Lako connecting with tho
United States. The Canadian Pacific
Railway came to the rescue, and in
due couise built fine railways and
steamers to open up the country.
Then catnii thc American railways to
try and steal tlie trade. Now competition is keen lo tho benefit of the
miner. Smelters for custom orss
were built, and after several failures
at Ooliicn, Pilot Bay, and Revelstoke,
we have now two smelters running
at Nelson and Trail. The American
smelters bought tlio bulk of our ores
till this year, when the American
Lead Trust came into existence. Now,
iu spite of an import duly in their
favor of 1 _ cent per pound on lead,
und our keen offering, tho lead trust
refuse to buy. Why? American Lend
Trust is a misnomer; it should.be
American Silver Trust. As silver is
nearly entirely associated or smelted
with lead ores, if this trust eorner the
world's output of lead,they eorner the
world's output of silver. Their objeet is to take the world's silver market away from Loudon, and transfer
it to New York, if they can, and so
have this enormous lever of trade witli
all silver countries. Can they do
this without cornering the Kootenay
lead output'.'
They think they can strangle it, not
knowing the vitality of Hritish blood.
I think they cannot corner or strangle
us; time will show, or, rather, capital invested here will show, tho importance of Hritish Columbia silver.
This trust proposes to shut down all
low-grndo silver-bearing lead ores,
more than those requited to flux
their silver, and they do this by low-
eiiiig the prieo of lead, ao as to make
it unprofitable to smelt lead for lead
alone. This trust also aro after the
Joplin (Missouri) zinc output, partly
in connection with its use to desilver-
isejjlead, Now, what can Brltishjcap-
itnl do to show "brotner Jonathan"
that liritisli push and trade is by no
means deud, that business acumen is
as good today as ever iu tlie Hritish
Empire ,against all coiners, and thut
our London silver market will stay
theic, that our trade with India,
China, Japan, and other silver countries will always exceed the other
countries comt ined? This is what they
can do. Come and invest in tills part
of the liritisli Empire la.go amounts
of working capital. Canada gives you
preferential tan If. Open the mines
up as they should bo opened with machinery. Don't pick the eyeB out of
the mines, us is now done, by shipping the clean galena and leaving
thousands of tons of second-grade ore
on tho waste dumps. Open up the
dry ore raiuos for Duxes on Springer
and Lemon creeks, Kuslo, and East
Kootenay. li it i 111 smelters���not custom smelters without a mine,but near
the mine, to snvo transportation
rates. Put up zinc furnaces to produce spelter to desilverise the lead.
Manufacture the leud into marketable products on tlio spot to ship to
China, Japan, India and other markets, very accessible. Then llritain
can hold her own in lead and silver
with all the world and free trade,
It tukes money to do this. That is
what this district requires, and London has It. There are big dividends
to be earned by investment of large
sums of money ; so that tin euteiprise
is not cramped for woiking capital lo
overcome dilllault contingencies. We
don't want stockbrokers to come and
intlate mining stoek with no working
capital; but we wunt such men as
those who have made a success of the
Broken Hills, IIio Tinto, Mason and
Barry, Thursls, Cape Copper, and
such businesslike urdeitnkings, worked as a legitimate business, and not
as a stock gambling scheme. Come
over and help us; we have the raw
material in abundance; you have the
money. There is money and dividends In it for both.

heroine of this later tale,who is quite
worthy of her far away grandmother,
Dorothy Manners. This means, of
course, that she is _ most lovable
girl, although one not us deeply smitten as Stephen Brice or as idolatrous
as Capt. Lige is provoked to impatience by some of her moods���moods one
does not expect to find in a young
woman of healthy, rational mind.
Stephen is entirely natural,and a very
fine fellow. We have real characters
in the book--Lincoln, Grant, Slier-
man, and other lesser lights. The
Lincoln which the author gives us
rather jars at limes. Many of the situations in which we find him, and the
conversations with which we are regaled, seem not altogether worthy of
the great statesman, patriot,and martyr; hut ouriously enough wc take
leave of him on each separate occasion
with increased respect for his character.
We would not like to say that the
book is as finished a piece of work us
"ltiohard Carvel," but no one is in
the least likely to take it up without
going through to the end. Eliphalet
Hopper supplies just villiany enough
to give it variety, and the younger
generation of readers will find in it
historical matter that is both interesting and instructive. The book is
illustrated, and, as we would expect
from the publsher., handsomely

Of Navarre the well informed mind aa does
the historical novel. The deeds of
men who lived in past ages hold an
all-absorbing interest for thc people
of today. Miss liertha Runkle, although a comparatively new writer,
has, in The Helmet of Navarre, presented _ fascinating romance which
will take place aujo_g tbe foremost
historical novels of the day. The
Siege of Paris manes a strong, vivid
background for a charming romance,
interwoven with tales of r.dventu'e
and daring. The story is well told.
the plot carefully thought out and
cleverly carried to its climax. Oilier

I'ine.t Lady Violinist of the World
to Appear Here Next Week.
The coining of Madame Camilla
Urso to tho opera house next Tuesday
evening mams an important epoch
in Nelson's, musical hisioiy. For
years this artist lias been recognized
by the critics of thc world's centres
as the greatest woman performer on
the violin and those in Nelson wbo
have heard her elsewhere are looking
forward eagerly to repeating the
When a performer of Mme. Uroo's
reputation appears no one can make a
mistake in going to hear her and to
miss this opportunity will be to miss
a treat that in ull probability will
not be repeated or equalled in Nelson
for years. Hegarcling her playing
that conservative and critical paper,
Thc New Vork Tribune, says:
"Her playing Is innocent of every
vice, it Is rich in every merit. Ilcr
perfect leposetulness begets a contl-
dence in the mind cf the listener
whicli frees enjoyment from every
concern. Her tone is firm, her taste
faultless, her style chaste as Diana.
In the "Lassen Concerto" there are
some stupendous technical difficulties, which, since somo of them cannot be said to contribute to the musi-
cal elTect uf the piece, we fancy are
contrived to display the skill ot the
violinist. These Madame Urso overcame In a manner that amazed tlio
knowing without discovering their
existence to the unleained listener. It
Is scarcely possible lo bestow too
much praise on such an iiclilcveincnnt
as that of last night, but rather it ia
to be deplored that the words o( tlio
reviewer, however appreciative snd
enthusiastic,   cannot make its merits
