Lipton  Still   Confident   but
Would Like a Stronger
New York, Sept. 2S.���In the closest
nnil most suul stirring race over sailed
for the old Amerioa'a cup, the white
flyer Columbia today heat the English
ohallenger over a windward and leeward course of 30 nautical miles by
tlio narrow heart breaking margin of
31) seconds. As Sir Thomas Liptou's
latest aspirant for the cup must allow
the defender 48 seconds on account of
the extra 833 squaie feet of canvas in
Inn sail area the ollieial record under
the rules, gives her the victory by ono
minuti and _2 seconds..
An   a spectacle, the contest was slip*
orb.   From the timo thu two skyscrap-
oroBsed   the   Btartiug   line  until
lied   across   the   viewless   finish
four and   a half hours later, thu
result   was   in doubt aud the   excitement   aboard   tlie   excursion flout increased until men became frenzied and
women almost   hysterical.      So   even
wore     these    two     scientific   racing
maohines that never after thoy started
were   the   rival skippcis out of  eaoh
others hail and more than three-quarters of the time   they   weie   so  clos
that Charlie llurr, who hud the   tiller
aboard   the   American,    could     have
tossed a busouit to  Captain Sycamore
on tho Shamrock.     Ifor miles as   they
beat their way to the outer   mark, the
hlack   shadow of the Shamrock's huge
club topsail   was painted on   the   big
mainsail of the  Columbia, and for an
hum- ou the mn home,    with the   two
yachts flying   like  scaled deer  before
the following wind, they   ran   almost
beam to beam as if thoy had been harnessed together.     The memory of the
races between   tlio   (lonesta   and   tho
Puritan in 1885 and Lord   Dunruvcn's
Valkyrie 1 and the   Vigilant   iu   181)3
which have been treasured by yachtsmen up to tnis time, will bo forgotten
after the magnificent  duel   of   today
It will   live for ever in the memory of
those who witnessed it.     In the years
to come,   yachtsmen   will recount the
thrilling story of tho   celebrated   first
race between tbe   Columbia   nnd   the
Shamrock II,,   sailed   oil   New   Vork
harbor in the first   year   of   tbu  new
century.     As a result of today's race,
though faith   in   the   Columbiu  still
remains in the hoarts of thu   patriots,
all the experts admit   that the Hritish
boat is the ablest   slojp   ever sent   to
these waters to lift the cup whicli the
old Sdioonei Amorica   brought   across
the Atlantic fifty yeaiH   ago   and that
the superiority of   American   seamanship and American naval architecture,
as represented hy the defender remains
to be established,     The   quality of a
Bailing ship is uninsured by her ability
to Curve her way into an adverse wind
und in the fifteen mile thresh to windward   toduy   the  golden    challenger
gained 80 seconds, while tlio run homo
hor lead was eaten up and the Columbia erussed tho winning   line  exactly
87   seconds   before tho Shamrock.    It
must ho   remembered,   however,   that
the ohallenger  had the weather gunge
in the heat to windward, no mean advantage and the nautical   experts said
after tlie raeo that during tho outward
journey she had been   Balled to   absolute perfection while beforo tho   wind
the American yacht not only showed a
Hooter pair of heels but in the opinion
of tho sharps,  was better handled.
In the liianoeuvei'ing before, Capt.
Sycamore had given the wily Yankee
skipper a genuine surprise, returning
a Roland for his Oliver of Thursday,
���lust when Iiarr thought ho had him
nnder his lce, the lOnglismau deadened
his headway and then luffed under the
Columbia's stern into the weather
berth. This victory for the Shamrock
at the very ineoption of tbe race, tho
Columbia could not overcome in the
���eng teat to windward,
The two big yachts wore an luspir-
lnB sight to the spectators, as thoy
plunged seaward, pounding groat
���showers of spray from theii bowl and
drenching tnu crews lined up along
the wontber rail. They h.eld to the
wind until their lee rails were   nwnsh
Provinc.il Libr��rv g311 .de they showed

Neck and neck, tack ai.d tack, they
raced like a toam of horst.-,. Dismay
began to be written on the faces of
the patriots as Barr tried once, twice
and finally a third time to cross the
bow of thu foreigner, only to be foroed
around each time hy the lean golden
muzzle of tbe Britisher. Visions of
tho dear old oup that means the yaoht-
mg supremacy of the world, vanishing
across tho wator, danced before their
eyes,. On and on they flew turning
twin wings of foam from their bows
and the Columbia seemingly falling
back rather than gaining. As the
yachts got farther out, tho swells
lengthened and tho white flyers seemed to labor more heavily in tho long
waves, As the Shamrock wore arounr
with her spinnaker polo poised to larboard, the big steam yacht Erin opened her whistle long and loud. It was
the fiist time Sir Thomas had felt the
joy of victory and he and his party
probably enjoyed it to the full. The
Yankee skippers wore too polite not
to pull their whistle cords, but tho
toots wore not loud nor long and the
bands did not play, "Columbia, the
tlem of the Ocean." But when the
racers had spread their pinions wing
and wing, spinnaker matching main
sail and balloon jibs drawing forward
and the whito flyer, Columbia, began
to eat up the green water between her
and the challenger, dropping spirits
began to rise and when the yachts got
on even terms about half way home
tint bunds began to play and the people raised a cheer.
As they approached tho finish line,
Columbia loading by half a dozon
lengths, all their pent up enthusiasm
burst forth. About a quarter of a
mile before they reached tlie line, the
golden boat blankctted the white one
and for a moment it looked as if she
would be first home. Cheers died in
patriotio throats. Suddenly, as the
''olumbia luffed off and got hor wind
dear, she forged ahead and caine leading down like a mad thing. As she
ciossed the line three lengths ahead
the enthusiasm broke out again with
redoubled energy. Every Yankee
siiipper grabbed bis whistle cord and
the noise and din they made was beyond desription.
When 't was all over, Sir Thomas
Lipton showed himself the thorough
sportsman bo is. "Well," he said as
he stood on tho deok of the Erin,
"that's one dot against us, but in my
own heart I am just as hopeful ae I
was this morning, for I fesl that if I
only bad a wind I'm all right. It
was a fuir and Square race, no fluke,
but it was not Shamrock's day. We
want a breeze that will put that deck
six liuhbs under water and then yon
will see a mco. Hut be suro of ono
thing, 1 was licked fairly today."
Captain Hob Wringe, who was on
the bridge of the Erin, at Sir Thomas
elbow, said: "If we get a fresh
breeze we will lift the cup yet. A
nine to twelve knot breeze Is what wo
E. It. Morgan, while highly plonscd
over the result of the race, had little
comment to make, "We beat tbem
fairly," he said. "Although the wind
conditions wore not all that could
have boon desired, aftor turning the
outer ninrK wo wore oonfident of
bringing the Columbia home a winner. I will venture no predictions as
to the outoome as to the future races.
We huve carefully avoided boasting,

The scanty accounts of tho race circulating in the extra editions of the
evening papers, describing the closeness of the finish, have bowevei, restored popular faith somewhat in the
possibility of the Shamrock's final
success, though more expressed judgment, taking both days performances
together, does not got much consolation. Tho netting has almost ceased

been engaged in a warm eontioveisy '
this week over Emperor William's refusal to receive the mayor of Herlin
on the subject of running the city's

tho municipality's views admit that
his majesty has a legal right to forbid
the road from crossing the thorough-

thc city involved in such a decision
sinco tne council bought two lines at

tho mayor and thc police president
that Emperor William would gwo his
consent to using these roads by crossing into Untei Der Linden. His
majesty has also rejected three monuments intended for one of Berlin's

he has rejected the plana for one new

feeling exists at the eonrt against the

the above incidents with the re-oloc-

Tho press in a new country like
British Columbia plays an Important
part in calling attention to its varied
and splendid resource" ami the advantages it possesses for se tilers and as
an investing place for capital, to say
nothing of the m��ws which it di-Seml-
nates and the power for good which it
exercises. British Columbia is a
province of magnificent distances,
and, in proportion to Its aiea. the
population is small, and. as a consequence, the publication of newspapers
lias not heen a remunerative occupa
tion a-* il is In Borne ut the older
province where there are more people
to the square mile than there are here.
Many publications have heen in existence for years and have led a hand to
th es nee. Of course, with the
increase in popoulation and an en*
largeim nt ol the inilustnea there will
conn- a time when the newspaper
business will be much more profitable
than it is now.      As   matters   are   at

applied for are located,and there used
to be a separate anddistinot advertisement for each one of the claims, but
now where several claims are owned
by one individual or corporation one
advertisement doo:i duty fcr the lot.
The trend of the wholo is In the
dlieution of building up tho British
Columbia Gazette ot the expense of
the press of the province and the province can get along much better without the official gazette than it can
without the press.
At the forthcoming meeting of the
press association the question of
whether it would not bo ill the public
interest to abrogate the public gazette
and give the advertising patronage
which it contains to the papers of the
province should be brought up. The
issue of the Gazette for September
19th contains il pages and there are
about 415 advertisements in It. The
advertisements are set in solid minion
and a large number of them are noi
given to the newspapers. The
(iazetto costs ui per yeai and is only
subscribed for by a few and only a
few of the citizens ever see it. The
money spent for advertising in the
Gazette is Blmply thrown away bo-
cause of the few copies issued and is
a trtaiiy unnecessary tax on tbe
public. If, however, these advertisements und announcements appeared in
tho press in tbo districts, which
the companes were formed to operate
in and in the sections directly Interested the objeot sought in auvertising,
giving them publicity, would be subserved, The government publication
receive at least 880,008-per annum

right*, go to the newspapers. Tbo
government would be perfectly right
in Issuing a Gazette uuntaining proclamations, oil,rial announcements,

constantly being made and old ones
eorganized and put on a better working basis. This has been so much tbe
case tbat the piesent season will compare favorably with any in the history
of thc country. Nelson has a number
of enterpiising mining men and tbey
have been very active and now more
than ever this city may claim.without
fear of successful dispute, that it is the
chief mining center of the interior
and that more mining deBls are put
through heie than anywhere else in
the province. One of the latest mining companies projected is the Northwestern Development Syndicate,
limited. This concern was organized
for the purpose of taking over and
operating the Camborne and Oyste
free milling groups in Pish River
camp iu the Lardeau. Tbe Camborne
group consists of nine claims and the
ledges are wide and assays run from
Slh.ii'i to 828 iu gold per ton. The
Oyster group consists of six claims
and the ledges are from four to 17 feet
in width and tbe ore assays from 84.80
to -J47.00 in gold to the ton. Tbe ore
bodies are certainly large enough and
of sufficiently high grade to justify
the expectation that, if tho plans of
the company are carried out, will
be successful, and aH the management
is in the hands of able and osperi*
enced men, well known in this community, there should be no fear on
that score. Free milling proposition,
wheiu there is ample water powor for
tl.e operation of stamp mills and air
compressors and where there are wide
veins of ore of a fairly good grade
aie among the more profitable forms
of mining. Where the ore can be re
duied at the mine the cost of haulage,
which is an important consideration
is ontlrely eliminated and tho mining
company gets all the proiit there is in
the ore without dividing with tho
smelter or the transportation companies These conditions surround
the projeot of the Northwest Development syndicate and there is every reason for believing that its project will
be a success.

At a meeting of tho provisional
borad of directois of The Northwestern
Devlopraent Syndicate, Ltd., a company recently'organized in Nelson, a
bond was taken on the Camborne and
Oyster Free-milling gold properties in
the Fish river camp, Lindeau. These
properties have beon under development by the Rosenberger Prospecting
syndicate with, it is said, most grati
fying icsulta. While no work has
been done at depth, all who have seen
the properties are agreed that the surface showings aro most remarkable,
both as to size of ore bodies aud
The Camborne group comprises nine
claims and covers more than a mile of
a large aurlferlous lode, which is
oxposed in different places on each
claim, and at every point of exposure
carries gold values, some places being-
very rich. One ore body 82 feet wide
averages $10.00 gold per ton, and
another 10 feet wide averages .:'8 per
The main vein shows in places a
width of 100 feet. Ou tho Uold Finch,
the uppermost claim, aro four parallel
veins of solid quartz, which have
been opeued up at many different
points and aie shown to oontaln gold
values throughout! A tunnel started
at the mi'.lsite level on tho lower
cliiin?s and driven a distance of 4,000
feet on the lode would tap the upper
showings at a depth of I,SOU feet.
The Oyster group comprises six
claims, cut by two large veins uf
auriferous quartz and a galena cross
vein carrying good values in gold,
silver, and lead. On one of the large
veins, an ore shoot over 300 feet long,
and from foui to 17 feet wide with
average values of from 84.80 to .47.60
gold per ton is opened up.
Both these properties are covered
witli a heavy growth of excellent
timber anil there is a splendid water
power appurtenant to each.
Surveys have been mado and preliminary steps taken to secure crown

(1) Th; discovery of a mind in the
universe through the intelligibility of
tho universe. As I tern my attention
to the phenomena of tho universe 1
find thorn presented to sense in intelligible order and relationship. Ir,
other words I find the operations of
nature to be such that I can understand tbem. To certain processes
and sequences of thought we apply the
word "rational,1' by whioh we mean
that tbey aro such as are common to
all minds of normal powers and activities. Tho discovery of a rational
method anywhere argues, therefore,
the presence of mind to order this
method, and when 1 Hnd a rational
order in the universe, I am led irresistibly ot he conclusion of tho presence of an ordering mind. The force
of this argument will, perhaps, bo
moro readily appreciated by the aid of
a simple illustration, I have placed
in my hands a piece of mechanism,
which upon examination I Bnd to be
constructed upon rational principles.
No sooner is this discovery made than
[ forthwith conclude tbat the mechanism is the product of a rational mind,
working according to laws similar to
those which govorn ray own mental
processes. Why then should I reason
differently respecting tlio universe'.'
(2) The discovery of a mind in tho
universe through tho idea of cause.
Nothing oan be more obvious than the
relation of causation in tbe world
about us. Everything is inseparably
bound together by it, and every fact
must submit to the enquiry for its
cause. Now there can be but one of
two things possible respecting the universe, either it nad a beginning or
it has always existed. If it had a beginning, this beginning must have
had a cause, If it has always existed
then there must still be a cause for
this eternal existence. In either
case a great First Cause, adequate to
account for all that has boon, ami is,
and is to be, must be sought. Examination of the universe as an aggregation of effoots, we have already seen,
shows this cause to be nothing less
than a mind. Mystery it may be but
the search for an ellicient cause of all
existence must rest in a self-determining intelligence, or it can rest nowhere.
(8). The discovery of a mind in the
universe through the presenoe of ends
in tho universe. The universo presents
one vast order, abounding in adaptations to sccuro definite ends. Purposeful plans are everywhere rovealed.
"Nothing walks with airaloss feot,"
and so vast and complete is the
abounding order that our poet-philosopher of the last century caught
glimpses of "a far-off divine event
toward which the wholo creation
moves." Here again nothing but the
supposition of an originating mind
can afford a reasonable explanation of
the factB.
Thei'o three lines of evideuoe lead
faiily to the conclusion that a mind
caused the universe, made it intelligible to us and is conducting it to an
end. The only power that could conceivably do these things is a mind,
self-conscious and self-directing. But
a mind self-conscious aud self*direct-
ing is peisonal, the word may be inadequate, but is not untrue. It is the
natuie of mind to be personal, and we
speak correctly when we Bay that the
universe is tho woik of a porsonal
spirit. There is a mind in tho universe, that is to say, thero is a Uod.

Another ridiculous food fad has been
branded by tho most competent
authoiities. They have dispelled the
sillv notion that one kind of food is
needed for brain, another for muscles,
and still another for bones. A correct diet will not only nourish a particular pnrt of tho body, but it will
sustain every uther patt. Yet, however good your food may be, its nutriment is destroyed by indigestion or
dypepsia. You must prepare for their
ppe arance or prevent their coming by
ailing regular doses of Uieen's August
Flower, tho tavonte medicine of the
healthy millions. A few doses aids
digestion, stimulates the liver to
healthy aetion, purifies the blood, and
makes you feel bnoyaut and vigorous.

Special Features of the
ence   Hot   Blast
Our New Idea Deflector Fire Pot greatly increases the heating capacity of the stove, and in connection with the deflector tint,'' forces the
heat to the lloor. The base is hot, the Moot* being warmer than W'th a
base burner.
The Hot ''last Attachment takes in the cold air through a duct at the
rear of the fire pot, the healed air being discharged in a circle at the top
of fire pot, over fire, thus consuming all the gases and products of combustion. It can be operated in connection with the front draft door, or
independently, by a screw register in the rear of base, instiling complete
control of tbe strve with nearly perfect combustion.
The large Hot Air Circulating Flue on thc back takes the cold air from
the floor and ejects it, intensely heated, through the top adi'ing greatly
to the heating capacity.
Where the stove is operated according to directions we guarantee it lo
consume all the gas contained in soft coal, thus deriving the benefit of
all the beat in the fuel consumed, causing a truly remarkab'e saving oi
fuel over any other stove on the maiket. The stove will hold lire from
24 to 4S hours without attention.

Calgary or some other point where the
Duke was making the presentation of
medals, that they would have to wait
for them until the tour had beon
tinished and their Royal Highnesses
have returned to England. The
medals would then he firwarded by
mail from Oltawa. As few of the
contingent care to make such an expensive trip to get the medals at, once
it is probable that it will be some
time before the men who went from
Southern British Columbia will receive this recognition of their
services. ���

W. Valentine Hunt, of the Honnington Falls Power Co., was in Nelson
yesterday arranging for the connecting
uf the wires from Honnington with
the Nelson system. This was done in
less than two hours, so that it wan
possible to turn on the lighs by
o'cIock last evening. The armature
of the alternating eurient which
burned out on Friday leaving the
residence und part of the business districts in darkness most of the night,

dynamo, the old one being entirely
obsolete and noi manufactuied now.

A little over a month ago three
young men from Nelsou took it proti*
pectlng and hunting trip starting
from Slocan City and finally emerging
at the mouth of PasH creek, near Robson. About ten miles from Robson,
where the creek was lirst met, tlio
party emptied their last quart bottle
of Scotch, and one them, lilling the
bottle half full of water placed it
upright and corked in the centre of
the trail, with a card stuck in the
cork boaring tlio fallowing inscription, "Please take a drink, but leave
enough for the next man." Last week
threo of the staff from lhe Honnington
Falls Power plant took a trip over tlie
same trail and toiling up it wearily,
espied the bottlo with the card still
attached. They could hardly behove
their eyes, but the lirst one to get the
bottle drew the cork and without
waiting to smell the contents took a
considerable drink of the stale water.
He has since beon making enquiries
for the perpetrators of the joke.
