The comparative failure of the salmon fisheries of the Fraser river by
drift nets is likely to raise the ques
lion of altering the law which prohibits the use gf traps for the taking
ot salmon v,ithln the limits of
Hritish Columbia waters. It is asserted that there jS _n���>ii reason in the-
argument tli(lt salmon bred in the
Fraser river _re takou iu the United
States watcrs to so groat an extent,
ai In uoriouijiy affect the industry on
the other side 0I the lin(. aud it is
furthei assorted that the use of traps
ia 11 better aiul less destructive mode
of mpturjng tho fish. Should this
view of a largo proportion of the
britisli eiinHe-y rae_ be ac jepted we
can expect to see the law altered   and
II very large number of traps erected
at the entrance of the Fuca straits,
and probably on the Wostern side of
Viincouvg't inland, so as to catch the
,lll,"��n before they enter the United
Mates   Outers   where the   salmon in-
lr- 's now established.
���' "ulst be borne In mind   that   the
"'''l "'.!ts cannot be used in   tideways

'���lit there are other and very seri-
~us reasons why the whole question
brese.pl; fishing laws of Canada,
as affecting the salmon fishing should
" taken up by the authorities with a
view of altering those laws. It is held
��� -i.it there is a useless destruction of
' ilmon caused by the drift nets in
J'ifi years when there   is a large   run.
'housands of fish are thrown away
��� n consequence of the canneries being
'luable to lmndlo the large number
caught. If traps are used, the fish
wluni net required are released, and
proceed on their way to   the  spawn-
year the writer /Sayn: "A ijlargc proportion of tliesij fishermen expect, to
make in twomonths enough to keep
them in comparative Idleness for the
rest of they year. The consequence of
this gambling, for it is little less, ta
sure tu bo injurious to tho industry
and t_ tho morale of the so called
"���bjfemen engaged in it, who are fish-
crJnen lor two months and carry on
^dd jobs for the other ten months.
Last year ihey were present in such
numbers thnt their nets extended
across tho estuary from sido to side
for miles. Thus ull entrance to the
river waB barred. If traps were used,
11 free passage would always  be  left,
In trap fishing the fishermen are
employed for eight months in the
vear, and form a body of workers
who can count on steady employment
and must consequently be of superior
cliiB- as fishermen to those who go in
for a three months' gamble and find
themselves adrift for the remainder of
the year. It is said that there arc
too many fishermen to moet the supply of salmon needed by the canneries, and tho vast strotch of their nets
lenders it difficult if not impossible,
for a sullicicnt number of fish to
get to the spawning beds."
Colonel Warren is president of the
Forest and Stream Club, and claims
to have given the salmon canning
question every consideration, going
to great pains to secure proper data.
Granby Company to Put in Another
Plant   at  Grand Forks.
Grand Forks, July 25.���Jay P.
Graves, genoral manager of the Granby Consolidated Mining & Smelting
company, said today that another
corporation that will iholude leading
shareholders in the Granby will
build a smelter in Grand Forks, says
a despatch to the   Spokesman-Review
A site adjoining the Granby plant
lias already been selected. In addition the Granby smelter, which by
Octobor will be, treating 1,300 tons
daily and converting its own matte,
will be further enlarged next summer to a capacity of 2,000 tons a day
if present plans do not miscarry.
"We have in contemplation,"
said Mr. Graves, "tbe consolidation
into one company of the City of Paris
and the Majestic groups as well as
several unincorporated properties in
White's cump, the Northwest Development company's group, and the California in Rossland. The proposed
corporation will be organize this coming fall or winter,' and will build its
own smelter adjoining the Granby
smelter. Both corporations, however,
will bo entirely distinct. Hitherto
we have laid out our plans two years
ahead and thus far they have been
realized. The proposed City of Paris
smelter will probably be built next
year and will start with at leaBt two
"The new corporation, of course,
will be enabled to have its own matte
treated at the Granby oonverter, now
being erected.
'"The Granby smelter enlargement," added Mr. Graves, "is making
good progress and by October we
should be treating 1,200 tons daily.
Ae soon as the enlarged plant is completed and working and our mines
fully equipped, we will, as already
contemplated, erect two additional
furnaces. These latter improvements,
of course, can not be effected before
1002 at the earliest."
Havana, July 25.���A number of
Spanish merchants have sent Senor
Galbis, a lawyer, to New York, to
make arrangements for the introduction there of the Spanish game of ball
and to build a "fronton" (a wall
from which the ball rebounds) near
Central Park. The game is drawing
large crowas in Havana.

A Number of People Injured
in Escaping From Fire
ln   Massachusetts,
Davenport, Lu., July 25.���Fire last
night destroyed un area of sawdust
and residence property in Davenport,
equal to twenty ordinary city blocks,
causing a loss of $700,000. The llamts
started in a big pile of kindling
wood of thc Rock Island Fuel Co.,
on the levee. A brisk breezo was
blowing which carried the Haines directly across the immense lumber
yards of Waycrha.iser Donlmann,
which wore totnlly destroyed. The
spread of tho Hie was so rapid that
thc workmen barely had tiuiej to escape. The Humes pushed their way
into the adjoining residence district,
closely settled with middle class
homes, the average value being a few
thousand dollars each from which
thc occupants escaped only with their
lives, and the clothing on their backs.
Over fifty homes were thus burned,
some of them tenements, resulting in
a hundred familes being rendered
North Atloboro, Mass., July 25.���
A fire that was attcndeil by the doath
of Miss Jennie Stanely, 20 years old,
a member of a prominent family
and the injury of a number of others
occurred this afternoon in a Broad
street three-story building. The
loss was !f:io,0(io, covered by insurance. Thos. G. Frothinglium and
William Smith, of Frotbingham _
Co., who were cut olf by the tire,
were forced to leap from the third
story window. Mr. Frothingham's
wrist and nose were broken, his
body lacerated and it is feared he
sustained internal injuries. Mr.
Smith suffered general injuries.
Chas. Warren jumped from the second
story and fractured one of his legs.
Staurt Jones foreman for Froth ing-
11 u 111 & Co. jumped from the third
story and sustained injuries to his
spine. There were 100 persons in the
building. Miss Stanley left the
building and went back to place the

Emperor William to Take the
Role of the Dove of Peace.
London, July 20.���The rumor as
to early peace negotiations which
has pervaded the House of Commons,
for some days, says tlie Daily Express.
has taken the more definite form lhat
Emperor William is soon to assume
the role of peacemaker. Mr. Kruger
and his advisers are represented as
having empowered the Kaiser to act
for the Boers, and he is considered
willing to take the initiative in order
to popularize himself with the German people who disapprove his friendship for Great Britain. Something
apparently is on foot whether Emperor William is in it or not. Mr. Kru-
ger's arrival at The Hague is connected, the Daily Express thinks, with
the peace suggestions.
London, July 20,.���A fow days ago,
says a despatch to the Daily Mail
from Cadiz, a battle was fought between the French and Moors near
Figug. It was thc result of the
French operations to subugate the
tribes south of tho Atlas mountains
and to occupy the Oasis of Taffet.
The French were victorious. Thu
Moors assert that the French govern
ment hus 9000 troops on the Moorish
London, July 20.���The War Office

French's columns aro gradually pushing the enemy north in Cape   Colony.
Yacht Constitution Strikes a
P.ock and Is Defeated
by Columbia.
Washington, D. C, July 25.���"All
day Secretary Long was engrossed
in tho consideraion of tho details of
Hie court Seeking particularly for a
suitable judge advocate realizing that
upon this officer would devolve the
largest measure of responsibility for
the conduct of the inquiry, to a successful issue. It was thought that
such a man hud been found in the person of Commander Jonn E. Pillsbury,
u sailor who has the brightest reputation professionally and is moreover
regarded as of a judicial temperament.
In fact, it was announced early in
the day at the department that he had
been selected for the place. But later,
on more mature consideration, his
mime was abandoned, It was recalled
that as commander of the dynamite
cruiser Vesuivus he had served under
Sampson off .Santiago, and moreover
as equipment officer of the Boston
navy yard and was now again a subordinate of the satno admiral. In his
desire to e.icape all criticism on- the
point of bias, Secretary Long felt
that these were reasons sufficient for
loolrne, out for new material and for
some man who was absolutely disassociated from 'lie greut controversy in
any pbaHe. Late this afternoon he
believed he had found such an officer
��u the person of Captain Sam C. Lem-
ley, the judge adovcate general of the
navy, a selection calculated because of
the rank of the officer to constitute a
full recognition of the dignityg and
importance of the forthcoming court
of inquiry. While it cannot be said
that the matter is absolutely settled
Secretary Long went so far as to ask
Lemley if he felt free toasceptthe assignment if it were offered to him
and it is believed that Captain Lemley will decide to answer ia the
affirmative. Captain Lemley bas
known both men, Schley better than
Sampson perhaps. He was one of
Schley's personal friends when ne
(Lemley) was in the active line of
service, and accompanied Sehley, on
the famous Greeley relief expedition
and rend-red valuable servioe to him
on that occusion which service the
enior officer recognized. On the
other hand Captain Lemley has known
mpson officially in the navy department when the admiral wus at the
head of the ordance bureau and they
were thus thrown into close contact
in a bi'sinees point of view for several
years. .
Capt.Lemley had arranged to depart
from Washington on his annual leave
ou a trip through Canada some time
in August. Should he accept this new
trust ho will arrange to leave on an
earlier date in order to return in
season to study this celebrated case
before the sourts meet on September
12. Meanwhile the clerical force of
the judge advocate's department can
prepuie the mass of documentary evidence necessary for use before the court
and witnesses ut distant points may
be summoned. Under the ordinary
rules of practice the judge advocate
ol the navy is called on to review the
proceedings of court martials and
courts of inquiry. Secretary Long
has piomlscd Captain Lemley that it
he acts as judge advocate of the
Schley court, he will be exempted
from the duty of reviewing the proceedings. Captain Lemley was judge
advocate of the Jeanne court of inquiry.
The precept of tho court probably
will bo issued tomorrow. It promises
to be a rather extended statement of
the scope of the inquiry oompared
with su.h documents in less import-
ant cases.
Hear Admiral Schley was not notified today by the department, of the
officers who will decide his case jbut
the precept will be sent to him and it
will constitute his official notification. Secretary Long did formally
notify the officers who had been chosen to constitute the court of their
selection and ho was disappointed to
learn from   the   Associated   Press de
Detailed Account of thu Race Between
the Two Big Yachts yesterday.
Newport, 11. I., July,. 85.���The Columbia today in a rattling thresh t.
windward from New London to Newport gave; the Constitution a greut
and unexpected beating, the Constitution finished a good third of a mile
Off. The victory was surprising for
the race wus sailed in weather that
as a rule, has just suited the Consti-
tuton, the wind never exceeding 11
12-knot gale, and thc sea being comparative smooth. It was not until
Newport was reached and tlie Constitution had been shaokltjd to ber moorings that an intelligent explanation of
her rare good drubbing could be giv-.
en. The Constitution following light
in the wake of tho Columbia, the
leading yacht in the big sloop clasB,
struck twice on a ledge near the race
rock lighthouse. There was a substantial bump on each occasion of the
strike and after this accident, the
Constitution acted like a lame
duok. Mr. Duncan, who is in command said this evening, that he believed some of the plates on the leaden keel were wrenched off by the
force of the impact on the hard rock
and thai these plates forming the fin,
acted as a drag on the yacht and made
her incapable of showing her usual
racing form. A diver was sent down
shortly after the Constitution had
been docked tonight but was unable
to make a satisfactory examination,
and Mr. Duncan decided not to race
the boat further until hhe has been
hauled out and opportunity given for
a thorough investigation. There will
be no race betwoon the big sloops
tomorrow therefore, and the Constitution is expected to go to Bristol to be
docked ln tbe morning. Thc official
finish time wus, Columbia, 0.21:55,
and tbe Constitution, 6.34:16, Elapsed
time, Columbia, 6.50:20; Constitution,
6,58:31, The course covered was 40

this juncture and arrested Botroff for

Botroff told Marshall lleitrickof the

posed a fine of $100 and costs. Notice
of appeal to the superior court was
filed and the piisoner wus released
under $200 bonda.
Nothing definite can be learned of
the treatment received by the other
non-union men. It is asserted that
they wore run out of town and that
the smelting coinpany is jh-cpaiing

St. Paul, July 25.���President J. J.
Hill, of the Great Northern railway,
on the day of hiB departure for the
west, received a letter from G. S.
Barnes, of Fargo, who stated that
North Dakota is confronted with a
serious problem in taking care if its
crop, which is about, toady for hai vest.
Last year, owing to the fact that a
poor crop had been advertised, there
was a scarcity of men. This year ut
least 20,000 men will be required in
Nortli Dakota to help secure tho crop.
Mr. Barnes asked the aid of the Great
Norther, railway in soliciting labor
for the harvest season in North Dakota, stating that mon could be secured
from Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa, if
they were assured ot a long season's
"The Great Northern has received
many letters from North Dakota people ou the same subject, " said General
Passenger Agent V. 1. Whitney.
"They are asking that the people of
��,t. Paul and Minneapolis interest
themselves in this question. This
year will witness thc harvesting of
thc greatest crop that North Dakcta
has uver seen. Kansas first could not
secure enough hands; now, on account
of the crop failure there, she needs
none, North Dakota has a bumper
crop, but, unless enough help is secured to harvest it that state will lose
much money and suffer a heavy financial blow.
"Harvesting will begin in North
Dakota about AtigOSt l,and, commencing at that time the railroads will
make a nite of $5 to nil harvesting
points in the state."   __________

The fate ot K. L. Blohardson, who
represented Llsgar in this Parliament
and the lust aud who was unseated
Inst week for corrupt practices at his
election, shows that the path of an Independent politician is a rough one.
He quarrelled with the Liberal cause,
which lie bad espoused consistently
before entering tlio Dominion House,
and then as proof that he was thoroughly Independent, quarrelled with
the Conservatives of Manitoba, who
supported him at the last election,
over the Manitoba railway policy.
When it came to the protest it turned
out that it had more friends than be
did, so between the wheels of both
great parties the political life was
ornsbed out of bim. Independence
as a theory Is all right but as an
agency to keep a man in Parliament
it is nowhere with practical politics.

The suggestion of Mr. Mill liner,
OOntained in bis letter in today's
Miner, is an excellent ono nnd it is to
be hoped that tho local fruit growers
will adopt it. Enough land can be
secured in this district to make it a
fruit exporting country and tu allow
the residents to procure the home
grown article at a price very much below that now paid for inferior stuff
brought from across the line.
This is tho mosquito season and
any expedient to relieve subuiban
distiietsof the pest will be gladly accepted by a suffering humanity. Thus
the world is under an obligation to
The Dauphin Press for the following
advice: "To expel mosquitoes, take
of gum camphor a piece thout one-
tliirn the size of a iicn's egg,and evaporate it by placing it in a tin vessel
and holding It over a lamp, taking
care that it does not ignite. The
smoke will soon BU the room and expel the mosquitoes, and not one will
bo found in tho room Hast morning,
even though the windows should be
left open at night." As the anglers
are the chief sulTcrers here, it is evident that, to thoroughly enjoy thc bon-
elits of this cure, they will have to
fish iu thc bath room.
Japan is progressing rapidly and

Victoria Times: Another of the
well-known newspaper men of Canada
has gone to the land where indignant
inbsoribera cease from troubling. The
sudden and Violent death of Mr.
Beaton at Nelson will cause great regret in Canada. The deceased was a
polished Writer, logical and convincing in his presentation of arguments,
and conspicuously fair to his political opponents, lie was the peer of
any man in Hritish Columbia, if not
in Canada, with the pen, and his
knowledge of the country and its necessities was unsurpasecd.
Vancouver Province: The death of
Mr. Ilcnton of the Nolson Minor, under such distressing circumstances,
was a terrible shock to all who knew
hiui. He was a man of much ability,
and of independent mind, and his
death will be a distinct loss not only
to tbe community in which ho mado
his home, but also to the wliolo province of llrit ish Columbia. Sympathy
with the bereaved family will be general nnd sincere.
Nelson Tribune: Much expressed
sympathy was beiud yesterday on the
streets for the late D. ,7. Beaton; sympathy that he did not get when alive.
A man who has passed the age of
sixty years, who is penniless and
friendless, if sent across tho dark
river painlessly, is not in need of
much sympathy from anyone.

To the Editor Daily Miner:
Sir,���I wonder if any of your readers have any interest in the following
idea. That all the fruit growers in
this vicinity combine into an association or society for-their mutual benefit and instruction Competition your
by year becomes keener and unless the
most modern methods are employed
in the cultivation, etc., of all fruit;
then horticulture hardly pays. Rumor
has said this season that a lot of frnit
has been sold In Nelson as local fruit
that really oame from a distance. As
local fruit comes into Nelson freshly
picked, and not on the green side, it
stands to reason that the flavor of the
fruit is better and that the price
should be. Now a Bociety of the fruit
growers of this distriet could do a
lot together for their own benefit,
could have meetings, have reports
read and also should choose one of
the lake ranches for an experimental
station. A station of that nature
would decide the best varieties for
this locality and would cost nothing.
Membership to tho proposed society
need not be restricted to fruit growers or those engaged thereby, but
might be open to all who take an interest in the too often unoticed, yet
wonderful works of nature as Illustrated in horticulture. 1 think 1 can
reckon on half a dozen membors myself, if any of your readers would
communicate with me, wo could arrange a meeting to discuss details and
rules. Also arrange for election of
officers etc.. Hoping that many will
see to this "Pro bono   publico."

Results of an Experiment in Stocking
the Great Lakes With Fish.
In a dispatch from Dulutn, Minn.,
the Winnipeg Telegram says: Four
years ngo the Duluth fish hatchery
planted several thousand try of the
steel-head salmon in Canadian waters in the vicinity of Port Arthur.
This is a Pacific Coast salt-water fish,
uno they were planted at Port Arthur
as an experiment, to seo how tbey
would tliri/e, and to see if a new
food lish might not be supplied from
Luke Superior.    Only u few  thousand
of these fish were planted in these
waters. One lot was deposited in
the lake at the mouth ol Current river, and tbe balance at the Silver Islet
doeic. From time to time, the past
two years, an occasional cateh of cne
of these fish has been reported, the
largest being about three pounds in
weight. This fish was taken at Ross-
port, close to 150J miles east of Port
Arthur and was supposed to have
reached that point from Isle Rovale,
around which several thousand of tbe
steel-head fry had heen planted.
Those planted at Silver Islet in
Canadian waters seem to have thrived as several of them have been
caught lately. Last week Captain
Malouey's tug Georgina brought into
Port Arthur two of these ���~sh the
largest of which weighed five pounds.
The fish was symmetrical iu form,
and its flesh was a beautiful salmon-
red. Tne Lake Superior steel head
possesssea a most delicate flavor, and,
in greaternnmbers,would be a very
valuable and popular fish.
The weight attained by the specimens caught from time to time would
indicate a growth of at least a pound
a year. Should the lake be st.cked on
a large scale by the Canadian and
United States governments, four
years' prohibition of catching' would
give t3 local and eastern markets one
of the most sought Pauific  Coast   fish.
The steel-heads are now spawning,
and fishermen who catch them in
tneir neta will conserve their own interests by returning them to t|ie lake.
Colfax, Wash., July 28.���Large
shipments of cherries and other fruits
are being made from Colfax to points
in Idaho, Wyoming and Montana
daily. The fruit goes by express and
the largest portion of it is sent to
Cheyenne, Wyo., Pocntallo, Idaho,
and Dillon, Mont,, although half a
dozen other points are also receiving
regular shipments of fnuit from this
country. The piioes obtained for
cherries are higher than for a number
ot yearB, owing to tbo fact that the
crop is lighter than usual. The
prices for other fruits also are high
and the fruit growers of Eastern
Washington will make big money
this year as the yield is the largest

Application was made hy I'. Wilson,
of the firm of Galliher A. Wilson, In
chambers yesterday, for letters- of
administration to llenjaiuin Reeves
late of Silverton, but now residing at
Kgansvillc. Henfrcw County, on tbe
estate of Herbert H. Beeves, to the
amount of f 1,000. The application
was granted. Application was made
nt ��W same time in the case of A1-
lenherg vs. Ritchie, for speedy judgment, which was extendd over until
Monday for the examination of defendant on allidavit. The ease arises
out of a olaim mnde bv defendant iu

to him at the timo of giving notiue

the policy was different to the representations made to him on the matter.

and Wilson for the defendant. A
similar application was made in the
orse of Allenberg vs Hensoo, which
will ccme up for hearing at the same
time. This is also an insurance casa
and in each ca.c the defendants claim
that representations wore made at the

A writ was issued yesterday by
Taylor '& Hannington, against the
Hall MineB smolter for $0,000 damages
to Hugh Fraleigb resulting from injuries received in the company's service. It appears that the plaintiff
was injured in the brick making machine at the smelter last April.
While the plaintiff was engaged in
repairing the machine the foreman
caused it to be started with the result
that his left, arm was crushed. Hence
tho present action. The claim for
damages is made under the Employers' Liability Act, and also under the
common law. As to the latter the
prosecution claims tbat the defendants neglectfully engaged this foreman knowing him to be incompetent,
and the injuries were caused by such

out of his arrest for not delivering up

damages and also $00 for other damages.
There were three oases before his

Witnesses were called to prove that
the defendant had mado the assault
complained of. The evidence, however,wont to show that there had been

There is a story that Manager McDonald planned to get legal action
against the miners' uuion for declaring the strike. He claims tbat the
strike waB not ordered in conformity
with the constitution of the Western
Feileration of Miners, which required
an affirmative vote from three fourtbs
of all the resident members. It is as
serted that Mr. McDonald got a member of the union in good standing who
consented to bring au action against
the union for ordering the strike
whicli put him out of work. On further thought, however, the mine management relinquished this idea.

In referring to tbo next Opera

As the picnic season is now on the
following receipe for a sandwich
should be found acceptable: tine of

brown, and uot too fresh, cut quite
thin, and sparingly buttered, after
which all the crusts should be removed with a sharp knife. The mixture fo filling is made aa follows:
Remove all skin and bones from the
contents of one box of sardines, tear
the meat to shreds, and pound smooth
with a silver spoon in a china bowl,
then add one teasponftil each of lemon juice, olive oil, Worcestershire
sauce, ,:bop, mix with pickles, tomato catsup, and a little suit and cayenne pepper. Mix all well together,
and spreail thinly on tho bread.
