Retail   Stores   Have Highly
Artistic  Windows for
the Celebration.
Some  of the Designs That
Will Add to the Beauty of
Baker Street.
Nelson merchants and citizens have
already acquiicd an enviable reputation for their ability and taste iu decorating both the places of business
and residen ;es for nn occasion like
the coming celebration. The bad
weather of the fast week has kept
back many of the preparations till
the last, and the probability is that
there will not bo many of Nelson's
merchants at chnrch today. Most of
last night hammers were tap, tap,
tapping in the store windows all
along Baker street, and Monday morning will reveal whnt has been achieved. Some had completed their preparations yesterday, but they were
in the minority.
This year the decorations are on
a larger scale than ever before, and
promise to do credit not only to
tbe originators of the various devices, but to the city as well In the
residential portions of town quite a
lot has been done in the way of
stringing Chinese lanterns, bunting
and greening. A suggestion that was
made yesterday to The Miner would
undoubtedly add much to the effect.
It was that where possible all front
rooms in houses should be brightly
Illuminated and the blinds left up

If the weather is good, the past
weeks of wet weather will have been
a blessing in disguise, as all the gardens and lawns will be looking theii
very best.
Much sympathy is felt for McPherson A McCannnon over tbe unfortunate
accident that mined their carefully
planned and elaborate decorations. In
tbe background was a large portrait
of her late Majesty, Queen Victoria,
draped in black and purple, with red
white and blue draperies from ceiling to floor. One side wail was covered witn bunting, over which were
rose vines and flowers In the centre
of the window was a crowned figure
of Miss Canada, arrayed in the national colors and on each Bide of her,
pillars surmounted by electric lights.
At her feet was a picture of the
present King. Besides this there
were several designs in novelties.
At tbe background were 28 colored
incandescent lights, with 53 others
disposed of at the sides and ceiling,
most of them being arranged in fancy
Geo. Bell A Co. have a tasteful window airanged with an immense assortment of fancy bottled groceries, in
the background with a foreground of
assorted fruits.
The Thompson Sationery Co. have
a quantity of bunting, flags and Fancy
stationery displayed.
The Hudson's Bay coinpany window decorations were not far enough
advanced to get a fair idea of what
they would luok like when completed,
but it is promised that they will be
exceptionally fine.
Patenaude Bros,, jewellers, have a
neat and pretty diBplay ol fancy

T. G. Procter and the Mansfield
Manutactming Company have quite
an elaborate design across the front
of their offices in ropes and designs

while not going in for anything elaborate, have a nice and tasteful showing, ^Consisting of cameras, flags and

Haidware is arranged in several
new and original ways in II. Byers'

The prizes for the water carnival
occupy Jacob Dover's window, nnd
are attracting a great deal of attention.
In Win.Hunter A Co.'s window Mi.s

young lady, stands pointing to a map
of Canada. On one side of her is a
pile of Canada's fruits, on the other
nativo vegetables. In front of her is a
design iu oranges.
Gilbert Stanley, amid a blaze of
red light, displays fireworks and
bunting, with magazines for a background.
McLuchl.in brothers in one window
have a handsome display of cutlery,
Rogers, 187, and the I. X. L. being
the principal makes. In the other
window is a magnificent aluminum
Oxford range, and a blue flame coal
oil range. The latter will be in
operation all day Monday, Illustrating its economy in fuel.
The Lawrence Hardware Co. have a
mine, with tunnel and dump, and a
team carting away tne pre from the
dump to a smelter whioh stands in a
convenient cornei. This is different
from anything else displayed and is
sure to be much noticed.
Besides those mentioned there were
a number of places where the proprietors hnve not commenced to decorate yet. Many of the hotels and
saloons are decorated with greening
and most of the smaller stores will
also spruce up considerably.

The race war is assuming large
proportions in this city. Notwithstanding the fact that there has
been so much pleaching against this
ungenerous attitude towards tne foreigner, it still continues. The Chinese are frequently subjected to a
petty persecution which if directed
towards a Canadian would result in n
law case. The Chinese have begun to
realise that they have a reinedV in
the court of law. At the. same time
there am scores nf acts of petty
tyiunliy showered upon the unoffen-
Bive Chinese which lire a ditgruce to
those who peiform them, but are
born in commendable silence hy those
who suffer them. Another ease of
this kind came before the police couit
yesterday when Bin Joe laid a complaint against one C. Howell, a boy
about 10 years of age, who ran into
the washee man on Victoria street.
The buy was carrying a basket of
fruit and the Chinaman was currying
a basket of clothes. Through an overt

charge of striking hut admitted the
fact that he too!; the plaintiff by the

Washington    State     is   profoundly
agitated over the murder of the   chief
of police of Seattle.    Most   of   the reports and   dispatches  speak of him as
the ex-chief of  police.    He   had been
chief, and only   resigned   on Saturdoy
last.    His   resignation   was forced by
the mayor, bocause he had become obnoxious   to   the   lawless element, the
element that stood for a "wide open"
town, and that has hud   it ever   since
the first election of the present mayor.
He was forced   out   on Saturday, and
on Tuesday, one of   the mayor's chief
supporters, a leading gambler,   killed
hiin.    He was killed because his sense
of duty compelled him to a course that
had for its   object the suppression   of
the   uglier and more open   aspects   of
the vice which was giving   the   city a
bad   name.    This was more   than   the
lawless element   could  endure, for   if
it was   pormlttod   the   city   might in
time elect a mayor   who had some respect for the decencies and moralities
of life and in the end  become respectable.   It was better tu kill  him,   and
he was killed.
For the first tiime in its life the
moral sense of the city has been aious-
ed. it required something beyond
the ordinary to awaken the torpid
conscience of the place, and they got
it in this daylight tragedy in the
heart of the city. The sentiment it
has occasioned in Seattle itself is
voiced in these words, froir. the Post-
Intelligencer: "It is time for an
end of the wild and reckless ways of
the frontier, of savage disregard of
law, of virtual anarchy in this community. We have been through
troublous times of late, and sounded
all the depths to which as a municipality we ought to sink. ,It i_ time to
lift a new standaid." How Seattle's
example has affected other towns we
shall let the Spokane Spokesman-Review, tell. It quotes the foregoing,
and then adds: "In this seeming resolution of Seattle to lift a new standard, other cities of the Pacific Northwest have more than the passive interest of the onlooker. In corrupting
itself Seattle has exerted a demoralizing influence on Tacoma, Portland,
Spokane, and other Northwestern
cities. It has been heralded an a fine
example of what a lively, progressive,
business community should be in
its ticatmentof vice and immorality."
It has,and the example has been cit="
ed as far afield as in Nelson. Here
thc frontier spirit is still rite; not
only rife, but at th8 present moment
triumphant, and the man who dares
lift a voice in protest, or reproof, or
warning, is overwhelmed with tho
abuse of every rowdy,blackguard, and
ruffian in the city. Men who should be
the first to join in the protest are the
first to condemn it. This bodes ill
for Nelson, which will probably have
to become worse before it is better.
We shall have no such tragedy us the
Seattle one as the price of o-.ir too
open disregard of the common moralities of life, but there will be much
shame to overcome and many painful blnshes to hide.

An Interesting Interview With Mr.
I Norris on the Subject.
As an appropriate climax to a series
of experiments in the matter of ed-
U-atln'g a three-yenr old monkey,
Pr ifeasor C. I. Norris, the famous animal trainer, Of Norris & Rowe's Dig
Shows, will endeavor to make the
monkey talk. To begin with his ae-
jfamplishiuents, he si ts at a table with
flfimplnccii -.y ; wears shoes and stockings; is a wonderful bareback rider
and can dress and undress himself.
He rejoices iu the name of Jim Robinson-.'., lint the most intoiesting e.x-
lertm'ent is Uu> attempt Professor
"orris is making to develop Jim's
cnl organs. After a careful inves-
atlon the professor concluded that
it these were perfect and capable
ihe nower of speech. Tbo method
employed to teach the monkey to
talk, the professor does not at present
desire to give in detail for publication.. He say:; it.consists of parts of
the methods used to teach blind children, birds, and the deaf and dumb.
The progress made is very near to
that made hy a child of similar age
of Jim, for he uses at present the
words, "papa" and "come back."
Professor Norris does not hope ever
to make an orator out of .I im, yet he
feelJ sbre he will witjiin a reasonable
time, be able to show to the scientific
world a Siimau who speaks in the
English tongue. Jim is a wonderful
jockey. He rides a pony man fashion
and turns back soinmersaults while
the pony is going at a tcrrllllc rate.
Jim 'will be seen with the Norris
& Rowe's New IH�� Trained Animal
Shows which will exhibit in this
city next Monday afternoon and evening. A new grand free spectacular
street carnival and children's fairy.
land parade will he given on the
morning of the exhibition.

A policeman on day duty is having
a great laugh on a friend of his In

this week the friend was standing on
the steps of the K. VV. C. blook when
the policeman joined him. Together
they stood watching tho rain when a
Iidy known to the policeman but
unknown to his friend passed by
wearing a straw hat and a print
dress. She appeared to be in a hurry
to get in out of the rain, nnd the
good natured policeman requested the
loan of his friend's umbrella for the
use of the lady. Without question
the umbrella was handed over and
tbe lady went on her way rejoicing.
The laugh comes in on account of

brella kuew nothing of Ihe lady and
was made to believe thai the borrower of it did not know either. After
the laugh was over the proprietor was
disillusioned and the following day
the borrowed article was returned.
