NELSON 6F.LEB~~T__
For the Eleventh Time Canada's Natal Day
Is Fittingly Observed by Two Days
of Rich and Rare Sport.
Winners in the Principal Events Which
Attracted Many Visitors to the Queen
City of the Kootenays.
Nelson's eleventh annua] celebration
of Canada's natal day was a great
success in every way. Thousands of
visitors from outside points visited
tlie city and spent .Monday and Tuesday enjoying the sights and sports.
As the weather had been wretched for
a month there was considerable anxiety about it but tbe weather man did
himself proud by serving up the best
variety be kept in stock and thereby
added greatly to the enjoyment of the
twi days. Early Monday morning
the sports commenced and from then
until after daik last night theiu was
something to amuse and interoU those
wishing to take in all the features
of the celebration. The city looked
renin: \ubiy well, especially at nigbt
when llaker street was most brilliantly illuminated with electric lamps,
the light for which was supplied by
the Tramway company. The handsome deviations of the hotels and
business blocks added greatly to the
appearance of the streets. The illumination on tbo lalto ut nif-ht mnde n
magnificent spectacle. The attendance at tlio different attractions was
very good and tbe entries numerous.
Most of the events were well contest*
ed and some rare sport <vas witnessed.
Nolson maintained its proud position at the head of Hritish Columbia
cities iu the matter of celebrating
Dominion Day.
TRADES PROCESSION.
Splendid   Display   of Mercantile   and
Union Interests of Nelson.
The trade's procession was one of
the events of the celebration. Some
timo was lost in tho different floats
getting into line, but after some delay the procession was started at 11
o'clock Monday morning. It was not
equal to those of the last two proceeding yearb but the floats were as
good as ever were shown. There were
not as many as on former occasions
probably owing to'tbe general depression especially In the building line.
Practically the only ones in tbis line
wero the floats of the masons and car-
pernors. The former had in course of
erection a brick house, built_ of brick
manufactured at.the Mansfield brickyard. Unfortunately for the success of
that pait of the parade the supply
of material and mortar ran out in the
eaily part of the procession and the
masons were all laid off���or on the
wall���all shouting for bricks and mortar. The carpenters were more "onto
theii jobs" especially Mr. Colbeck,
who was seated on the top of the
house they had built during the procession. Practically the whole con-
tiact was completed during the exhibit, windows put in, doors hung
aud a notice put up advertising it for
sale or rent.
The Nelson Monumental works were
busy preparing head stones and exhibited on their float a supply of
ready made graves, and this part of
the parade as a very   "grave"   affair.
Tho Bremen's turn out was one of
the Bights of the porcession and might
have received the blue ribbon had
thoy not been barred from receiving
a prize after their dteorationshad been
completed.
In the bicycle parade there wero
some very flue exhibits, the most \
notable of which were those of Harold
Cameron and that of Baby Riblet, a
little girl of tender years wlin rode a
wheel standing about 18 inches high,
the orders represented in the procession were the Miners' Union, display-
'Ug a number of fine banners enunciating the principles of the order. The
Brotherhood of Trainmen had a following, displaying a handsome ban-
��er; the   Trades and   Labor   Council.
Kniglits of Pythias, the Plasterers'
Union, the Typographical Union,
the Laborers' Union, the Hazelwood
Milk company, J. Y. Griflln, Brack-
man & Ker, and the two furniture
floats of McArthur A Co., and Bunyan
& Co., whose displays were of the
handsomest in tbe parade, completed
the list of business floats. In addition
to the above the inosc attractive
feature of tbe parade was the children's float, which was well arianged
and which Tas equally enjoyed by
the children as well as the adults.
In the comic line there were only two
exhibits, one representing Farmer
lirown going to market with eggs and
the other was a "swell" negress with
her prize baby. One of the most attractive features ol the parade was the
circus performers. The monkeys,
dogs, elephants, ponies and the clown
band added minli to the procession.
In addition to tbe circus bands
there weie the smelter band and the
Salvation army band, who discoursed
S".*-el uiuo.c uu the yvny. Prior to tVtc
parade there was some disorder caused by what at first appeared to be a
luunaway. A restive team attached
to Bunyan & Co. 's float attempted a
break for libeity and ran into a
brewer's dray, which in turn fright
ened-the brewers team. Several women had a bad scare and one of them
in her hurry backed herself into the
window of McPherson ifc McCammon.
The team was brought to a standstill before any further harm was
done. Following are the award for
tho Trades' Procession: Best float,
Bunyan & Co., silver cup, valued at
8150; best trade float, Nelson Monumental Works, first prize. British
flag, valued at $25; second prize, $15
wou by tho Carpenter's Union; comic
display, first prize, $20, won by the
representation of Farmer Brown going
to market, Ed Curran, farmer, W.
Steed, Fritz Katzenjammer, and C.
Riley, Biddy Muclahey,composing the
aggregation; the second prize, nigger
baby and attendant, represented by
.Messrs. Fraser and   Eaton.
The first prize for the best groomed
team was won by P. Bums & Co.'s
bay team, which was the pole team
on MoArthur'e float.
WATER   CARNIVAL.
Grand   Display   of Illuminated Boats
on Monday Nigbt.
The water carnival on Monday
night did not havo as many entries
as a year ago, but it was a great
success from every standpoint. The
lake was coveied with beautifully
decorated boats of all sorts and sizes
and the generous use of Chinese lanterns placed on tho mountain across
the water made the scene one long to
be remembered. As darkness descended Ihe candles in the lanterns wero
lit, rockets; soared upwards and red,
green, blue, and white fire blazed out
to make the seel e more glorious. The
steamer Moyie took a large number of
people out on to the lako and search
lights from all tbe port boats sent
their long shafts of white light to add
to the beauty of the  display.
A barge was placed acrosd the lake
opposite the city wharf and from it
fire works were sent up during the
evening. The display was very elab
orate. Another barge, on which tho
committee spent a large sum of money
for a fancy dress ball was moored at
the end of the wharf. It looked very
pretty and an orchestra was on board,
but the only drawback from a ball
point of view, was tbat no one turned
up to dance. The prospect of dancing
in the middle of the lake in fancy
costume did not seem to impress itself
favorably on those   who  might be ex
pected to attend. Tbo smelter, Salvation Army and circus bauds, supplied
| music for tho lake during the even-
i ing. The plies at the city wharf and
I other places were hung with Chinese
I lanterns.
I As soon as possible after daik a procession was formed of the decorated
boats and they were towed up and
down the lake making a striking
effoet. Sounds of music came over the
lake from many of tho boats and liolp-
ed to produce a Venice-like effect that
has scarcely been surpassed by any
interior town of Canada.
The judges deliberated at length
over the merits of the various boats
for the prizes and finally settled on
tbis list: Rest decorated launch, best
illuminated boat, best musical boat,
the steam yacht Idler-; best decorated
rowboat, Mrs. W. A. Macdonald, 2nd
Wm. Irving; best canoe, (I. C. Hodge,
2nd P. Criddle; most comical float,
Mr. J. J. Malono had bis steam
yacht decorated most handsomely,
the design being after the historic
Heaver. Mr. .lohn Lachore hnd gone
to a great deal of trouble decorating
his boat and when he needed it it upset.
The C. P. R. liouse boat nnd Mr. T.
G. Procter's house boat were handsomely decorated.
BEST    DECORATIONS.
Prize Winners For Best Windows,
Rest Building and Residences.
The prize for the best decorated dry-
goods window was won by The Hudson's Bay company.
The Phair hotel won the prize for
the best decorated building, and Mrs.
John Houston the prize for the best
decorated private residence.
The Hudson's Bay company had one
of the finest window displays tbat
have ever been given in Nelson. Each
of their fine windows wns handled in
an entirely different manner, and all
most sikllfully. Tbe p'incipal subject represented a model of Fort Simpson   in   1.06,   beside   the   Mackenzie
I'ivvr. 'Tho linctt ,.; I c Mini ���r ~�� ix number of pine trees, while in front a log
stockade surrounded the rough buildings of the Fort which were most
faithfully and artistically portrayed.
In one window was a marvelously intricate and beautiful design in nwcl-
ties depicting the blending of shades,
which caught tbe eye of every lady
and most of the gentlemen as well,
who passed. Another window was
devoted entirely to carpets, curtains
and houscfuinisliings generally. The
choiest qualities and most exquisite
diaping were shown in a thoroughly
artistic manner, and it was very difficult indeed to decide whether it or
one of its neighbors on cither Bide
should be awaided the palm.
The hotel decorations this year wero
very good, and elicited a great deal
of praise. The decorations on the
Phair hotel, which won the prize
made the building show up to great advantage from the water. The Hume
was also very handsomely  arrayed.
BABY SHOW.
Fair Number of Entrees and Big Crowd
of Spectators.
One of the chief events in point of
interest in yesterday's celebration was
the baby show." It was the first held
here and despite several hitches was
an undoubted succcsb. Bunyan & Co,,
in whose warerooms tho show was
held were indefatigable in doing all
they could for the comfort and conven-
ence of all, but the crowd that came,
of which probably several hundred
did not get in, was large enough to
have filled tho Opcfn House to the
doors. The arrangeiflonts were also
hardly adequate. Instead of only allowing those with babies in, all who
came were allowed . to outer, till thu
place was packed solidly and for an
hour confusion reigned supreme. The
crowd who were not directly concerned in the show wero finally persuaded
to go outside and the judging was
done as rapidly as possible, the doors
were again opened and the procession
passed in one door and around and out
the other.
A few minutes later the following
babies wero   announced   as   winners:
First prize.gold medal.Johnny I'ike,
age six months, Kaslo; 2nd prize, sil-
ver mug, Ueorgo Darts, 90 months;
3rd prize, case of cream, Fred llnrt-
wig.Bix months; 4th prize, five pounds
of tea, Charles Akehurst, 17 months;
5th rfi-ize, baby carriage, Jack Johnstone, 21 months. The prize for twins,
tjvo silver mugs, wns won by the pair
belonging to Mr. and   Mrs. R. Hodge.
The judges, whoso names were discreetly kept secret till tho last minute,
were Count Frederic do Ilaillienconrt,
A. M. Clifford, and A. M. Johnson,
wilh Mr. C. I . Freeman-Lake an adviser. The choice of these gentlemen
ns judges, representatives of the three
loading industries of the Kootenays,
mining, law and railroading was a
happy one, as not being supposed
I to have much interest in such articles
, as babies, they wero tbe better able
to give a fair and unbiased judgment.
Dr. Lallan was general superintendent
of the show, and Percy Chapman, S.
tl. Campbell, and a number of other
gentlemen gave good assistance in
arranging matters.
In judging the babies tbe two points
by which apparently all claims were
decided were those of weight and
size, allowing for ago. This. although the easiest and least complicated method resulted iu barring the
girls, Hie boys taking ull prizes.
A number of visitors there suggested
that thc show should havo been given
in the opera house with better arrangements for seeing tho babies,
such as a procession of baby carriages
up an down the aisles to allow all a
good chance of seeing them. A committee of ten ladies could be picked
out at the last minute, whose choice
should be by ballot, the judges to act
ai referees with power o' veto, that
this would have beeu tbe most interesting event of the celebration under
these conditions was declared by
many.
DRILLING CONTEST.
Splendid Record Made By Competing
Teams on Monday Afternoon.
The drilling contest was une of the
best ever seen in the Province and although there were only three entries
the events were warmly contested.
Owing to the fact that the contest was
tried on the rock which was used the
year before ono of thc fastest records
was spoiled in tho midddle of the contest when the winner of the first prize
was prevented from completing the
competition owing to the fact that
the drill became fastened in thc rock
i.miB. Uy tho iu.Ii 1. *ri_k beeu drilled
before. Ross and McLeod of the Slocan Star mine, won the professional
first prize of $125 and retained the cup
they had won the previous year presented by the London and B. C. Gold-
fields, Ltd. The time was eight minutes and the distance 211 inches, with
a five-eighth drill. The first prize for
the non-professional drilling contest
was won in fifteen minutes, in a hole
of 3V inches, which wah drilled by
McDonald and McOillvary. The prize
was of the value of $75. The second
prize in the same contest for a $50
prize, was won by Ho.skin and Holmes
iu a 30-inch hole by a seven-eighth
drilling in 15 minutes. In tbe latter
event Holmes played out before the
trial was completed.
LACROSSE MATCH.
Medicine Hat and Nelson Play a Hard
Game to a Tie.
One of the best features of the celebration was tbe lacrosse match yester-
d_y afternoon between Ihe Medicine
Hat team and the Nelson twelve.
The two grandstands at the recreation
grounds were crowded and a large
number of people lined tbe edges of
ihe field. They were treated to a
fast.soientific.and brilliant exhibition
of Canada's national game that does
great credit to the two teams. It
opened the eyes of a large number of
people to tho excellence of their owu
team. The score was a tie and perhaps as nearjy represents the relative
strength of the opposing sides as anything ciiulil. They were perfectly
matched, w_-te quick" nnd sharp at
passing and accurate on catching.
Thc men were well covered throughout and the checking was hard and
severe at times but no rough play
marred tho mutch. Tho teams lined up
as follows:

C. Benunet of Knslo referreed the
game and Geo. A. Hunter of Nelson,
and Harry Bell, Medicine Hat, were
thc umpires.
All the games for-the visitors were
Hcorod in tbe first half and the four
for the home tenm In tbe second half.
Nolson's nieteorio finish, against the
heavy odds of 0 to 4, was the feature
of the gamo and made the spectators
very enthusiastic.    Early in the game
the Medicine Hat team took charge ot
things pretty well and treated the
| spectators to some beautiful team
play. This resulted in four games
dining the first hnlf while Nelson
was making itself felt only by dashes.
In the second half Ihe home players
settled down to work with a score of I
too against them but tbey got lo work,
each man III led bis place to per.ee-
tioli and the score was tied just before
time wns called. Neff,of the Medicine
Hat wns n bright nnd shining star
and the throe I'enrds, Mat, "Hilly"
nnd "Bud" were brilliant additions
to the strength of the visitors. But
when all did so well it is hard to
pick out anyone for special praise. It
is so with the Nelson tenm but Per-
rler, Thompson. Archibald aud McNicholl seemed to attract tbe most attention on account of their good
work.
Instead of playing off the tie it was
decided to play another match Ibis afternoon so the .same teams will again
meet on the same grounds a 3.30 p.
in. today. It will be a magnificent
game and one very well worth witnessing. Nelson certainly never saw
lacrosse before to equal that put up
yesterday afternoon.

On Monday afternoon several hundred people hied their way by bont

THE CELEBRATION.-
There aro complaints as to management,   but   of   the   general character
and   spirit   of   thu celebration   which
closed last   night   there   can    be   but
one opinion���they   were   in the  high
est degree creditable to the  enterprise
and enthusiasm of the   people of Nelsou.    Thc  City,   indeed,   never   does
these   things   by- halves.    It   set  out
to celebrate Dominion  Day in a   right
royal manner, and as usual it succeeded.    The   efforts   of the various committees were more than well   supported by the people   behind   them,   wbo
heartily     and     unreservedly     threw
themselves into the spirit of the occasion and   by   their   very   enthusiasm
commanded   success.    One   could   not
help   regretting,    however,    that   the
water   carnival   on    Monday     night,
less excellent   in   some   respects than
that of last year, bad for spectators so
few in addition to   our   own   people.
It was a   spectacle   such aB   no   other
town in Canada, large or   small,    has
ever rivalled, and if only us un   exhibition cf what a mining town  in   the
Interior of Hritish Columbia   can   do,
a town   that but a short   decade   ago
was almost   nameless,  it  would   have
well repaid a   long   journey   to   witness.    For   the   lirst   time there were
rival   attractions   in     the    southern
part   of   the     Province���at     Fernie,
Trail,  and   Grand   Forks���and   these
probably   affected     the       attendance
from   the   outside;     but   in   another
year, if the carnival should be repeated   on   such   a   splendid   scale, it   is
wcrth    while     considering     whether
more general and insinuating   invitations should   not   be   published   than
were advertised this year.

MINKS   KEl'ORT,   1000.
The roport of ihe Minister of Mines
for HiOO has been issued. A great deal
of the space devoted to the Nelson Division is occupied with information
regarding the Athabasca and Ymir
mines, a true indication of the importance these have attained, Not so
much is said of tlie Sil 'er King,
which for prudential reasons had
been confined to a development stage
during the year. The repoit furnished by the Hold Commissioner, Mr.
Turner, covers every mine and prospect in course of development in the
Division, and makes a narrative of
great interest. The oflice statistics
of the Division are as follows:

Here are some snge remarks from

is about to build a railway in the
Boundary country. Competition will
be substituted for Government control of rates here. Of course Government control of rates is all right.
Hut tbe beauty about competition is
that it gives automatic control of
rates. Railway cotnpnnies have
worked overtime to interfere with
this automatic contiol, but they
hnve never succeeded. Tbey have
mnde n complete success of interfering with Governments."

The sailing race was B disappointment as no outside boats were entered
in tbe contest and tbe only locnl entires woie the 'Myth" and Astley's
"Hobs." Tbe boats being unequal in
B'.ze there was nothing to create any
interest aa tho '-Myth" being tho
larger and better boat won easily.
Theie was a line breeze to have made
a good race had the contest been more

UENERAI,   RACES.
Nelson Children Enjoy a Merry   Timo
on Baker Street.
J Chas. Waterman was probably one
of tbe busiest men in Nelson yesterday. All daylong lieotganized all
kinds of races for children, intermixed with vnrious rases for Indians and
Chinamen, taking up collections for
the prizes from the numerous spectators, all of whom enjoyed this informal celebration immensely. If a cou
pie of hundred dollars had been put
aside for children's races and games
on llakcr street during tbe two days,
It would have Deen a good investment. There are few who do not enjoy seeing the zest and earnestness
with which the children go in for
such CDntests, and it is interesting to
all ages and classes.
Mr. Waterman arranged potato
races, dime races, orange and nut
scrambles and a variety of other
kinds of races in most of whicli from
fifty to a hundred   children took part.
An Indian footrace, between bucks
from the reservation near Bonner's
Ferry, was a close and well fought out
event. Tbe course, extended from
Josephine along Baker to Stanley,
and tbe manner iu which tbe Inuianr,
Covered the ground was interesting to
aee. They went over the co-irse throe
times.
A Chinaman's race was arranged after some clifticulty, the contestants
having to be literally dragged to the
starting point; however, they put in
their best licks, and were cheered and
applauded along the  whole course.
About U p. in. a long string of tired
but happy children, marched up Ward
street to llaker before scattering for
their homes, giving three final cheers
for the man who had worked so hard
for them all day.

Nelson Wins in the Former and Sandon in the  Latter.
One of the best games of football
which has been played in tho city of
Nelson took place on the recreation
rounds on Monday last, between the
homo tenm nnd Slocan. The Slocan
boys put up a good game and the fun
was fast and furious. Tlie first half
of the game was somewhat slow but
iu the second half the visitors awoke
to the fact that they were going to
lose unless they succeeded In a moie
aggressive play. But their efforts
along those lines failed to help them
out of the difficulty and the game ie-
sulted in the borne team winning by
2-0.
There were three entries for the
baseball tournament viz.,Nelson, Sandon and Trail. The first draw resulted in the Nelson boys coming into
conflict with tne Sandon boys. There
were a large number of spectators and
the Sandon boys beat the home team,
The game was played on the recreation grounds on Monday afternoon.
The Sandon team then met the Trail
team yesterday afternoon immediately
after the lacrosse match. The game
was long and exciting and attiacted a
large crowd of spectators. It was
nearly 7 o'clock In the evening before the game was decided, with the
result that the score stood at the end
of the game 12-8 in favor of Sandon.
The Sandon team was made up of men
from Sandon and Kaslo, with Harry
Houston of Nelson as catcher.
FOOT RACES.
1 here. vvei. buuj- lout it.cco etc..under the supervision of a committee of
which John Houston was chairman.
As it was iuipossilbc to "cover" every
thing The Miner relied on getting the
desired information from the chairman of the committee, as it did in
every other case. But they were evidently run for the beoefit of The Tribune, as a point blank refusal met the
request of The Miner for the names
of the successful competitors.
ILLUMINATED BICYCLE PRAADE.
An interesting feature of the winding up of the celebration last evening
was the illuminated parade. There
were not as many entries as might
have been expected, but the ones on
parade were very nicely decorated
and attracted great applause. The
first prize was won by Poppie Mac
donald who had a very pretty representation of a Japanese lady with a
huge umbrella decorated at each of its
ribs with a Chinese lantern. The
second prize was won by Alicd Mc-
Beath, for a triangular decoration
which was illuminated by a small
electric battery. Harold Cameron was
awarded third place for a very nicely
decorated wheel of very elaborate design and was certainly entitled to
worthy mention. Baby Riblet, a lit
tie tot of very tender years, who also
rode in the Trades' procession, was
very conspicuous by her diminutive-
nees and received tbe lion's share of
attention and applause.
CALEDONIAN GAMES.
Thu Caledonian games were a centre of attraction for a large crowd of
spectators and some very good sport
was had in this connection. Each of
the prizes iu this series was five dollars and were won by the following
gentlemen. Putting the shot weighing 10 pounds, was won by N. P.
O'Neill, who threw 48 feet 8 inches;

will tuU�� place among the foremost
historical novels of the day. The
Siege of Paris mattes a strong, vivid
background for a charming romance,

I  THE CITY
The Tramway Coinpany carried 2,170
passengers on Monday.    A large nuui
ber visited the Park yesterday.
A photograph   reproduction  of   Mr
Marpole,   Oeneral   Superintendent  of
the Pad6c   Division of   the C. I'. R.
adonis the first page of June number o'
The Uailway and   Shipping World.
Mr. Bradford late of McArthur &
Co.'s returned to tbe city from Lardo
to take in the Dominion Bay celebration and left again for the Lardo
country yesterday.
One of tlie most recent airivals at
the residence of A. J. Kerr's is a girl
baby whe arrived on Sunday last, and
lirst in time to take in the Dominion
Day celebrations.
A couple of citizens of Ymir celebrated Dominion Day io a ma_ner
that thoy will riraember for the rest
of their lives,by getting married. Thc
ceremony was performed at the residence of Mis. Melieath on the corner
of Silica and Ward streets, at tl
o'clock on Monday, morning liev. W.
Mnnro tied the knot and the contracting parties were Thomas Henry Atkinson, drugigst of Ymir and Theresa
Fahey late matron at the Ymir Oeneral hospital which position she resigned quite recently. Only a few of
tho most intimate friends of Ihe'Tidal
paity were present at the ceremony
and after the happy event the bridal
party left for Ymir, where they will
iu future teside.
J. Weildon, who was doing work on
the Kingston group of claims, about
two miles west o' Nelson, on Morning
mountain, has not been seen or beard
of for the last month, as near as can
be ascertained,and some of liis friends
are wondering if anything bas happened to him. The piopcrty was visited Sunday by a reporter and looks
us if no one had been arouud foi
some weeks at least although groceries are on thc table of the cabin, tools
scattered around in the open cut, and
tunnel of tlie Minnehaha and Lake-
view claims, and also live sticks of
dynamite, detonators, etc., a'.! lying
on the gronnd with weeds grown up
around and over them. It is possible
be may have gone awuy to some othei
claim, but nothing could be ascertained of him having done so.
FOOD AND WEATHER.
Temperature  Increased   or  Reduced  by
The old army ration for the tropics
has been very sharply criticised for
the reason that it consists of articles
of food that any person   even slightl.v
acquainted with the elements of food
knows is not adapted to the needs of
the human system In hot weather.
Nature shows forth in tbe selection of
food by inhabitants of various countries; for instance, the Esquimaux in
a cold climate Selects heavy, carbonaceous foods, tallow, bacon and such;
while the Hindoo and Inhabitants of
hot countries turn lo the cereals for
sustenance.
We should follow this hint of nature, and pailieularly 111 hot weathet
should avoid much butler, meat or
any of the class of food. Perhaps a
little meat once a .lav Is not amiss,
even in hot weather, but the break
fast and luncheon should be made of
fruit, one or two slices of entire
wheat bread and some Urape-NutS
and cream. Crape-Nuts are mentioned, because tbey furnish tile ideal cereal food ill a most palatable and delicious form, in addition to which, they
are ready cooked and lequlre 110 attention whatever from the cook.
A person can pass through weather
that may be intensely hot. in a comfortable manner, if the food be properly selected, nnd the above sugges
tions can be put into practice with
moot excellent resultB,
The Palm confectionery had a big
pulm in the tunics1 piocession borne
by three trusty Indians, which was a
very conspicuous feature of tho cele-
hrations.
Cane A McDonald, architects, have
let the contract for the erection of C.
Morrison's liouse on Caibonnte street
to W. J. Fisher. It is a nine loomed
house two story high and will cost
12,600.
J. A. McDonald, thc fruiterer on
Baker street and Lee A Burnett on
Ward stieet had very fine fruit exhibits in their establishments which at-
taicted a large amount of attention as
well as custom.
The brilliant lighting of the ill-
candescent lights thut cross Buker
street hus attracted much nttention.
Tlio power is supplied by the Tramway company and the I Set that the
lights went out occasionally was due
to the connection being formed with
the trolley car thereby being susceptible to the starting and stopping of the
cars.
SALVATION ABMY CHANGES.
Adjutant McOill Leaves For Vancouver on thc 14th.
The last number of the War Cry
gazettes the removal of Adjutant and
Mrs. McOill of tho Nelson Salvation
Army, to Vanouver, \vher�� they are expected to assume charge of the work
at that point on the 18th of July.
They will farewell with the local
soldiers on the second Sunday of this
month (July 14,) and will leave this
city in time to assume charge of the
work in their new field nf labor on
tbe above date. In addition to the
work in Vancouver they will also
have the oversight of the work in
Nanaimo, New Westminster and Victoria. Tbeir successor is Adjutant
and Mrs. Alwaid of Vancouver, who
will assume charge of the work here
immediately it is vacated by the present oHIcers and are expected to arrive
about the IStli of this month. Captain and Mrs. McGill have been residents of this city for about eight
months and by their hard labor and
devotion to the work in which they
are engaged have made many friends
und the best wishes of a large circle
will follow them to their new field
of labor.

A LONG WAIT.
Passengers from Spokane Spend a
Night on Train.
Passengers on Sunday afternoon's
train over tlie Nelson A Fort Sheppard line coming from Spokano had
an unpleasant experience. The circus train was on in fiont cf the regular passenger train, ami a car jumping
the track caused two others to follow. The passenger train was crowded to the doors, there being three in
every seat, and wood box, etc, also
being full. When the extent of the
injury was ascertained a number of
men on board volunteered to help in
getting the cars hack again. It proved to be a long and tiresome wait, as
it was in the early morning about 4
a. m., before tbo trains were able to
proceed. The night was a very uncomfortable and tedious one for all
owing to the crowded condition of the
ears.

the gang operating west of Robson
had gone out on strike. Thc section-

the strikers that this aetion of the
brulgemen will do much towards
bringug matleis to a ci ibis.and a settlement of the dispute.
