Yesterday.
A   Lady   and   Four   Small
Children Have a Thrilling  Experience.
Yesterday an exciting incident occurred that was within a hair's
breadth of terminating in a terrible
tragedy. Enrlv in the afternoon
Mr. and Mrs. Horace Hume, with
their three children and the little son
of Mr. Hume's sister, Mrs. Vanwart,
who is stopping with them, went for
a fishing excursion. Mr. Hume rowed tlie party across the lake and to
near the swift water sign at Selous
Point, where they landed and he continued ou foot to the mouth of Groh-
mau creek, a few hundred yards fat
ther down. The river at this point
is most deceptive Near shore is a
slight eddy and looking across, the
current is almost imperceptible, while
the rush of Grohman creek along its
boulder strewn bed utterly drowns
the Hoarse roar of the nearby rapids
on the Kootenay. After Mr. Hume
had been gone a little while Mrs.
Hume took the children out in tlie
boat iutending to row them around
a little. The eddy gently drifted tlie
boat up stream and then outwards
without ihe cccupan's realizing tbat
anything was wrong. Tlie first intimation of danger came in a about
from Mr. Harry Hubbard, of The
Miner, who with his wite was fishing
a short distance below, and called to
Mrs. Hume to row for the shore, lie
at the same time waded out as far as
possible, hoping to catch the boat,
which, seized in tbe swift glassy
current, was now traveling rapidly
down stream. Mrs. Hume tiied to
row in, but the force with which the
current swung the boat out caused her
to take a false stroke, with the result
that they were swept still farther
out. Mr. Hubbard seeing that nothing could be done from where he was,
waded back to shore, met the
two Allen brothers,who live close by,
who with Mr. Hume had seen the
boat being swept past (Jrohman
CTcek. The four men ran up to where
Mr. Hubbard's boat was moored, but
short as the time was the other craft
was already almost in the first line
of breakers, which commence just
above the island. If the water bad
not been high nothing could possibly
have saved Mrs. Hume and the children, and even as it was their escape
waa miraculous. At thc lirst white
topped surging wave struck the boat
It appeared to utterly swallow it up,
and to the few watchers the moment
before it emerged on the crest seemed endless. .Swinging and dipping and
with tlie waves sweeping right across,
the boat still weathered the first
rapid, and was wliilred around the
head of the island and into the eddy
below, from which Mrs. Hume paddled it to the islaud.
Meanwhile Mr. Hubbard and .1 im
Allen bad rowed across with desperate energy,landing on tlie south shore
at the very head of the rapids.
They ran _down the railway track
nearly a mile when they saw that
Mis. Hume had been successful 1.
making a landing, so they went back
to tho otbei shore, after working the
boat up stream, to get ropes and tell
Mr.  Hume the good news.
Mr. Hume's position hud been a terrible one, as he was directly opposite
the principal rapids and utterly powerless to save, saw bis family swept
down to what appeared to be certain
death. He was at tlie tune beiow the
mouth of Grohman creek, whuio the
current divides into two bodies, one,
the principal, sweeping to the soutli,
the other to tha north side of tho
island. The shores of both banks
are rocky in the extreme, while iu the
shallow watei near the head of the
island immense boulders break up tlie
rushing water into boiling chaldrons
of foam and create croBS currents innumerable.
After Mr. Hubbard and the .lim
Allen secured tlio ropes they and Mr.
Hume leturned to the south shore,
where their boat was carefully lined
down through tbo rapids.    Thoy row-
most memorable fishing   trip   of   any
of   those who took part in it.

CITY COUNCIL
OUT OF DEBT
INTERKSTINJ   DECISION.
Court Decides on an Important Real
Estate Heal.
Ar, important decision was rendered at the sittings of the county court,
before Judge Forln yesterday, in a
case of a real estate transaction between Willia.ii Vi__ and .lames Wil-
|liams, both of Nelson, plaintiffs, and
S. M. lirydges also of tbis city, defendant. The defendant went to the
plaintiff in regard to the purchase of
three lots, formerly owned ty J. G.
W, Dickson, late of this city, and
told them that he had this property
for sale. He also intimated that it
was a snap. Plaintiffs, before purchasing the property enquired as to
the how the title stood, and were informed that there was only one mortgage of 81,(lull against it, hut in the
opinion of the defeudant the instalment could be arranged as the property would be able to meet the same
out of the monthly rentals.
It turned out that there was at the
time a second mortgage against the
laud, which the plaintiffs were nor
advised about although tbey were ad-
vised of a first mortgage. All information about the title was brought to
the knowledge of the plaintiffs hy thc
defendant. The plaintiffs paid to the
defendant Slim in cash antl gave him
a note tor $150, this being the amount
of the first instalment of the purchase
price. They ascertained after payment
that there was a second mortgage and
demanded the money back.
The note was returned, but the defendant, a real estate agent, claims
that he hod a right to appropriate
the Sum cash payment and apply it on
a debt owing by the principal to him
and that after such appropriation tne
plaintiffs must look to tbe principal
for the $100.
The old ease of Hullene vs. Harrison in Cowper's reports 508 has been
cited. It covers the facts and the
lii'v remains unchanged.
Lord Mansfield says: "Now the
law is clear that if an agent pays
over money which has been paid to
hiin by mistake he does no wrong
and the plaintiff must call on the
principal. Hut on the other hand
.hall a man though innocent gain by
a mistake certainly not Is it conscientious then that the defendant
should keep money which he has got by
his   principal's   misrepresentations?"
This money was paid over on a misrepresentation or mistake as to title.
The defendant may have been quite
innocent but cannot rely on this as
be communicated all information as to
title to plaintiffs. Judgment for
plaintiffs with costs was consequently
given.
S. Taylor appeared   for   plaintiff:

Montreal, July 8.���"Sir Wilfrid
Laurier says he does not share French
Canadian sentiment at all and he
permits Mr. Sifton to completely
swamp the French race in Manitoba
with hordes of Russian savages and
adds the government is just in importing a new menagerie of 12,Ono Mo-
lokans. Molokans," says Le Trirlu
vien, "do not smoke, do not drink
and do not eat. pork and, like Men-
uonites and Doukhobors, are afia'd
of guns and will not touch them.
When, theroforo, the Umpire, or
Canada will have need of its children,
to guard its frontier, Laurier will
send French Canadians to be massacred, while these imported barbarians will peacefully feed their rloek
on the rich plains of thc west."
Ottawa, July 8.���It is commonly
reported in political circles that
there are at least five members of the
Senate, appointees of tha late Government, whose votes can no langer he
counted on against tlie Liberals in
any party division of consequence.
Conservative nominal majority in that
body is about eight, but those best
acquainted with the condilions say
that the actual plurality is not more
than one or two and when it is taken
into consideration that there is never
a day when some of the older mouthers are not on the sick list and absent
from their seats it was to be seen
that even next session it may be impossible for Sir Mackenzie Bowell to
throw out any bill on whicli the Lib.
erals lay particular stress. One bill
upon whicli there is sure to be a
warm debate is for tlie distribution of
the electoral district in accordance
wilh this year's census.
Brocitville, Ont., July 8.���Col.
Otter inspected the 41st regiment here
Saturday and was banquetted in the
evening. Speaking to the toast,
"Our Guest," and referring to attacks
made on him in reference to his conduct in South Africa, he said: "I
was placed in a peculiar position as a
part of the Hritish army and beside
trained soldiers with men comparatively green to their duty as soldiers.
The responsibility was gieat, but 1
did the best for them and the country. Perhaps I made them sick sometimes by continually harping on this
string, 'what will they tliink of us at
home 1 We must do out best for Canada and the empire.' What the results were you all know." The colonel grew warm when he spoke of
attacks made on him by a portion of
the press. "I have been attacked,"
he said, "but I havo never replied,
and never shall for there is one place
at headquarters where all complaints
can be heard and all wrongs will be
righted and only there will 1 make
reply Up to date not one man has
over liis own named lodged complaint
there."
A voice���"They never will."
"I boliove they never will," remarked Col. Otter, "for there never
was a period In my life when 1 was
more satisfied with my work than I
was with what was accomplished in
South Africa. True, 1 had to bo severe sometimes witli men who forgot
themselves, or were ignorant of theii
duty as soldiers, but I defy anyone lo
say I ever acted in a harsh or arbitrary manner, but" I always had
before my mind the honor or the country we were representing."   (Cheers.)
Napanee, Out., July 8.���Thc funeral of the late Johu Hell, M. P., yesterday was the occasion of a very
large concourse of residents and visitors. Tho burial took place under
tho auspices of the Orange association and tover sixj hundred members
of the order attended. Among tho
prominent members present were
Clarke Wallace, Grand Master of British America; Mackenzie   Howell, past
Question of Retaining Electric  Display  on   Baker
Street Discussed.
(Continued on Third Page )
The City Father* met last evening
at the City Hall at 8, but it was half
past before they were called together.
All the aldermen were present except
Alderman Madden. As the Mayor was
not present at the commencement on
motion of Aid. Selous, seconded by
Aid. Gillett Aid. Hamilton was voted lo the chair. City Clerk Strachan
was present, occupying his placo for
the lirst time since his accident.
Before the council adjourned the
Mayor made the gratifying announcement that the city debentures had
been disposed of at a good figure and
realised a total of $105,11110. This, in
addition to the amount of the licenses
which the city would receive during
the present month, would place the
city in a solyent condition and would
wipe out the over draft, whicli was
an encouraging condition of things as
it was tho first time in the history of
Hie council that they had been in
that foitunate position.
The r. port of the fire, water and
light committee was presented on
tbe matter of the proposal of the Bonnington Falls Power Company's offer
to supply the city with electric light,
wording of whioh was substantially
the same as that already reported in
Sunday's edition of Tlio Miner, tho
company's offer being refused.
The report of the special committee to confer with the trustees of the
p'iblic school was verbally presented
to the effect tbat they had met and
agreed to call for plans from the var-j
ious architects of the city. In son-
nection with this matter Alderman
Selous, at the close of the council
meeting,(asked permission to make a
personal explanation in tcference to
the letter appearing in The Miner
from Architect Macdonald, accusing
him (Aid. Selous) of canvassing in
tlie interests of paritcular architects.
He gave the story his unqualified denial. He admitted that when the
matter was brought up before the
finance committee, he had suggested
a]query as to the possibility of the
trustees being ahle to erect a school
on the plan suggested at the figuie
they were proposing lo do it with,
and had enquired of a city architect
Mr. Ford, as to whether it could be
done for the money. It was a case of
enquiring from Someone, and the
gentleman interviewed on the matter
had drawn a hasty sketch of the proposed building with the statement,
after a rough estimate, that it could
be done for the money. This statement, togother with the outline, had
been discussed at the meeting of the
committee, aml_thal was the extent of
his inteiest in the matter in one
way or the other. Alderman Hamilton, ns a member of tho committee,
verified tlie statement and the Council weru ot the opinion thnt Alderman Selous w_s exonerated in the
matter and advised to pay no attention to It.
A proposal was mado to tho eity
from Ewart Bros, and Riugrose,
offering to the city tho electric lights
which bad been put up fur the Dominion Day celebrations for the sum of
J:t0fi, witli the request that the matter
be given Immediate consideration, as
if the city did not intend to take
tbem over thoy wished to remove
thorn at once.
The Mayor stated that ho had gono
into the matter with Superintendent
MoPheeJ and Mr. Mason, and onu
difficulty presented itself, even if tlie
city and the council desired to have
llaker street illuminated in tlie manner it was during the celebrations,
and that was tbe irregular voltage,
because at times it was so strong
thnt it broke the lamps, and although
the power could be regulated it would
cost a large amount of money to do
so. In addition the Mayor stated
that so fai he. had heen unable to procure a statement of the probable cost
of supplying tlie light from the Tramway Company.    While they  were dis-J
cussing the matter a telephone message was received from Ml. Mason to
j the effect that ho could not give tbem
a price in time for the council that
evening. Ue also suggested thai the
celebration committee should be consulted on the matter as they had or-
Idered the electrical display. Alder
man Patterson enquired as to thc attitude of tlio Baker street merchants
on the uiattei and suggested that they
should be solicited to support tlie
scheme financially.
The Mayor was of the opinion that
they would be willing to support the
scheme, onough, at any rate, to cover
the cost of breakages. After a little
more discussion it was agreed tbat
they could not pursue the question
any further until tbey knew what
would be the cost of supplying the
lights, and to dispose of (ho matter
the chairman of the fire, water and
light committee and the Mayor were
a committee appointed to go into the
question with the celebration committee. Tho general expression of
opinion seemed to be iu favor of retaining the lights.
A communication was also received
from Adjutant McGill of the Salvation Army, requesting the Htono in
front of tlie Phair hotel towards the
erection of tbe Salvation Army bar
racks, which tbey propose creeling in
the near future on Victoria street.
It was decided that the request could
not he aeceeded to as tbey would require the use of the stone for the erection of the new High School and instructions wore given to have the
stone removed to tho school site as
soon as the location of the building
was decided upon.
Petitions were presented from the
Nelson Transfer company asking for a
sidewalk in tt.e vicinity of their
property and the grading of Vernon
street as at tlie present time tbey had
no access to their stables. The matter was referred to the city engineer.
A similar petition was presented
from Mr. McRae and twenty other
citizens on Houston streot (the former gentleman being present to represent the petitioners) requesting tbe
grading of the street and for the placing of sidewalks from Josephine to
Kootenay streets. The matter was
referred to tho city engineer for an
estimate of the cost and then to refer the matter to the hoard of works,
who would report at the next meeting.
The e'ty clerk w��s asked to present his report on the condition of the
opera house, but explained that he
wa6 unable to report on the matter
as he had no information as to tho
demands of the committee who bad
authorized the changes, As it was
understood tbat all the* demands of
the council had been compiled with
the city clerk was authorized to issue
a license to Mr. Annanle.
The matter of repairing the bridges
on Carbonate and Silica Btreets was
authorized and thu matter of moving
the city weigh scales was referred
to tlie mayor and city engineer.
A number of accounts wore authorized to be paid on the recommendation of the finance committee, and the
cemetery and city improvement bylaws were given a six week's hoiRt
and tbo Council adjourned to meot
again on tlie lfith.

UNSATIS.'-CTOKY ANU WHY.
If thc conditions of the mining industry in till. Province are not aH satisfactory as could be wished, the
reason is, in tlie opinion rf The ."Mining Record, that capital for development is timid and slow of coining.
This is the difficulty,upd it is important to know what creates it. Tbe
Mining Record devotes a good deal
of space to the consideration of this
queston, and traces thc difficulty *o
the following causes: Exaggerated
anticipations on the part of investors;
extravagance and incompetence on tbe
part of the representatives of investors; hnd mining laws; unstable relations between labor and capital;
overtaxation, and injurious incidence
of taxation; extensive swindling on
tlie part of company promoters ; abnormally high cost of production from
inefficiency of labor.
There is no unqualified condemna
tion of the mining laws, They are
not perfect; but tbey arc pretty much
what tbey were when capital was
flowing more freely than it is now, It
iu not so much the laws themselves that
produce thc trouble, but the continual
tinkering with them. There is an
impression abroad that in administering them tbe Government is not in
sympathy with the industry; its actions give too much reason to suppose
that it Values the industry chielly as a
source of revenue and as a corpus vile
for cxpermental legislation. The laws
themselves may net bo utterly ha:!, hut
hotter they were than to have them
administered in this spirit. In this
reference to the mining laws, we understand that the term applies only to
the regulations laid down by statute
for the actual conduct of thc business.
There are other laws affecting mining which are more positive in their
evil effects than the mere legal regulations. One of these is the mineial
tax, which in common parlance is
reckoned as a mining law. (,f our
contemporary's observations on this
point wc quote the following:
"The mining industry of British
Columbia is undoubtedly overtaxed.
Of tbat there cannot be any question
nt a'l. Directly and indirectly its
contributions to tlie Provincial lev-
cnue are far in excess of what is necessary for its own regulation and development, and ils legitimate ratio of
the expenses of government. But
oven more oppressive than the amount
of the taxes levied is the method of
tlieir levy. The taxes are none of
thorn upon property, hut all upon industry and development. So long as
one iB content to hold mining property and nol work il the taxes are infinitesimal, hut as soon as any attempt
is made lo develop and produce a ser-
vies of excessive imposts are encount-
erd. An example of tbis may he given
which would be ludicrous if it -ere
not an Illustration of a system which
ifl disastrous in its effects. A mini ig
coinpany may hold a Crown grant lo
a pleou of mining property merely by
paying an insignificant sum demanded
us the tax on "wild land,'' but as
soon as an attempt Is maile to work
the ground it is necessary to lake out
a liceliho costing Slim. If it were the
other wiy about it would he a comprehensible system of luxation. If a
coinpany were charged a fee to hold
milling properly without working il,
and lhat fen win remitted when it did
woik the ground, the system would
he capable of being understood,'1
On the whole it must be said that
the "laws" are injurious. Of another cause, the unstable relations between labor and capital, wc can all
apeak, If not with positive knowledge, at least with an instlnot that
servos foi knowledge in a matter of
this kind. There is something in the
air that wc all feel, to which it is not
easy to give a name. Capital is full
of appiehctision, while of labor it
would pcibaps he necessary lo draw a

They are starting a new town over
Similkameen way, called Tullameen.
Tbe usual first, step has been taken
in the shape of a nicely executed map
of tbe place, to be followed no doubt
in a few weeks by a newspaper. The
town has that fresh, prosperous appearance which maps have a way of
taking on, and in addition it is said
to havo advantages of location which
are bound in time to make it a place
of no little consequence. Until the
advent of tbe inevitable newspaper,
however, it will not be consuleied as
fairly launched.
A current paragraph conveys the information that .Mr. C. 1'. Lu'as, C.
II., of the Hritish Colonial Office, bas
just completed the first, part of a new
history of Canada. As no one connect
ed with the Colonial Ollice "as ever
known to visit a eo'vny, Mr. Lucas's
history is probaoly a compilation of
archives,and nothing else. That may
be valuable in its way, but it is not
history.
One of the political rumois current
on the Coast last week was that Mr,
Dunsmuir was to give np tbe Premiership to Mr.Turner anil take a subordinate positon in the Cabinet. Hut why
to Mr. Turner, who has booked himself for London? If suddenly blessed
with the grace of resignation, Mr.
Dunsmiur is more likely to invite bis
mentor, Mr. Martin, to step into bis
shoes. The rumor is doubtless a wild
one. Mr. Tinner's going out leaves
a vacancy, whicli will probably be Bleed by Mr. Winchester Hrown, and
there thc changes will cease for a
time.

rumors were current   that   the trainmen and engineers   contemplated tak
ing some   action   with   the; tiackmen
and us a general "walk-out'   wus spoken of a   prominent   engineer yester-
| day   said   that   as   to   the   engineers
! views of the situation    that this body
| did   not   contemplate   for   a   minute
any   move     towards    striking.    "As
long as the   road is fit   to   run   on,"
I said the engineer,   "aud the company
I are not asking us to   take   any   risks
I there will certainly   he   no   rao;c   on
our  part.    We are not   asked to make
fast   time   ovor   a soft   track,   which
I would he all right now if   it   had not
been for the heavy rains.    We are not
doing any kicking.''
Speaking to an official of the company the reporter learned that the
company had not asked for any conciliatory deputations to Montreal. The
company considers that the strike

Although Mine. Camilla Uioo, the

Tlie following tale of woe is told by
The Kossland Miner: "A Nelson
man who is in tlie city for a day or
two came a bad Oroppei over tbe Medicine Hat-Nelson lacrosse match played in Nelson on Saturday afternoon,
tin Tuesday Nelson played a lie game
with the lint men, au 1 the lattei
team then defeated Grand Forks.
The Nelson man was confident bis
townsmen could beat the buys from
the other side of the Divide, anil
wagered liis money freely wi'.lt Ross*

this point, lie dropped 8140 on the
game, whicli Medicine Hat won by
the close margin of ii goalti to .'.''

Could give tlie lint boys n goud game
but if they remain ns Indifferent as
Ihey have been thus far this yoar,they
had better not visit onj more popu-

utile of putting up a tenm that wilt

Greatest   Living    Woman    Violinist
nl the Opera House Tonight,
The coining to Nelson of Camilla
Urso, the great violinist is much
tallied about in musijal circles. Hers
Is no epbeiuei.'il reputation, drawing people once to see whether a sensational exploitation of genius fullllls
its own promise upon the stage. She
long ago took her place in the very
front rank of the masters of the violin, and she lias held undisputed possession of it ever since. Her vititB to
this part of the world come nt long
intervals. She never has been beard
in Nebon. and it probably will be
long l�� fine sbo will come again, so
Jier piosciit   visit slioubl bu made   the
mo.-t of by all who value real art in
music. Slio will appear at the Nel
son Opera House this evening and
those who wish to enjoy an evening
with a master should attend. Nelson
is so far from ihe main line of attractions that it is seldom the opera bouse
management is able to announce such
an attraction and the only way to se
cure more of them is to encourage
ihose who do some.
.Mr. Annable has  handed The Miner
the following   'otter   for publication : j
I'o the Patrons ol   the   Nelsou   Opera |
House:
Madam Camilla Urso, who will
appear at tbe Nelson Opera House I
tonight, is second to none in her line
of music. The most severe critics
pronounce her to be thc greatest lady
violinist in the world. Her playing j
is simply marvelous and Nelson citi- I
zens having tbe name of being great
lovers of high class music should avail j
themselves of this opportunity of
bearing her. She has with her a
contralto singer, Miss Helen Hall,
who will please those who are move
particularly fond of vocalists. As
manager of theOpora House I bave always tried to secure as high a class of
attractions as possible. Madame Camilla UrEo's manager wanted a date
at Nelson on the night of July 1 st,
but on account of the Water Carnival,
1 refused to book them on that date
as I thought a great many of the musical people would like to patronize
both events and Madame Urso has
been filling in the time ai Rossland,
Greenwood and Grand Forks, aud a
telephone message from the opera
house maiager at Grand Forks yester-
day noon stated that nearly every seat
had been sold. The company consist
of four people. They will arrive in
the city lrom Grand Forks on the 0.30
train this evening; the concert will
begin at s.:tu and Capt Gore has kindly ccusented to bold the Crow's Nest
boat till 11 o'clock, so that the little'
woman who will handle the how tonight will only remain in Nelson
about four hours.
