WINNIPEG WINS
ROWING HONORS
Western  Men Successful In
Two   Races   Yesterday.
Best Oarsmen of the Con
tlnent   Now Assembled
at Philadelphia.
Philadelphia Pa., July 19.���Under
condition that could not be improved
upon, the first day's laces of tbe 20th
annual regatta of the National Association of Amateur Oarsmen was held
on the Schuylkill river, in Fairmount
this afternoon and the initial day's
sport was in every way a success.
Winnipeg oarvied off the honors, winning two events while St.Louis, Worcester, Toronto, Philadelphia, Detroit
and New York, each won one race.
The raoe of the day was that between
Detroit and Vesper of Philadelphia in
the senior four-oared event in which
the latter won by a nose, and the surprise of the afternoon was the defeat
of the Vesper senior four, composed of
members of the world's champion
crew, hy the St. Lonis four. Another
fine con'eHt was the final in the intermediate eights which was captured
by the husky crew from Winnipeg.
Ten Eyck and Lewis had no trouble
in the senior doubles. All of today's
raees were a mile and a half with a
turn, with the exception of the eights,
which were rowed straight away for
the same distance. In tbe heats the
first two qualified. In the intermediate eights, final heat, the result was
as follows: Winnipeg "owing Club,
of Canada, 1st; Malta lioat Club, of
Philadelphia, 2nd; Fairmount Rowing Club, Philadelphia, 3rd. Time of
7 56M. Johnston, of Winnipeg, won
the   singles.
INTERESTING SUIT.
An Interesting and important case
will come for bearing at the next sit
ting of thc court in tbis city, which
will be in September next, in which
one of Nelson's leading lines will ap
pear as the defendants in. the suit.
Yesterday a suit was entered by Patrick A.George against the Wallace-Miller Co., retail clothiers of this city. The
plaintiff in the suit,is one of Nelson's
old timers and was one of the locators
of the Molly Gibson property in
which he was largely interested before selling out. He claims to be a
shareholder in the coinpany and asks
to have a receiver appointed to take
over tbe management of the business
and an injunction restraining tbe
meeting members of the firm, from
interfering In the business of the company. His claims that the business
cf the company has not been properly
conducted, as no notices had been
served of annual meetings nor any
annual statements published. He
also claims that ther. has been no
audit of the accounts or the statements of the company and claims tbat
he has been made the victim of a
fraud on the part of the other four
members of the company who are
charged with collusion, in preventing
him from exercising his legal rights
in respect to the affairs ofthe company. The Brin have a branch establishment at Greenwood and the head
store ln this city.
TO BE HELD IN NELSON.
Matthews, New Westminster; Vice-
President, Bev. M.Van Sickle, Nanaimo; Snd Vice-President, Mrs. P.H.Mc-
Ewen, New Westminster; Secretary,
Rev. J. G. Hastings, Victoria; Treasurer, E.   H.  Morgan, Vancouver.
Mr. Morgan reported that the Baptists were erecting two new churches
in the Kootenays, one at Cranbrook
and the other at Fernie, the former
of which will be opened in a few
weeks free of debt. Referring to the
educational work of the church, he
stated that a western school of correspondence had been organized, covering the academic work and the two
first years in arts. They have also
made a move towards establishing a
residential worker to stop the gap in
the home mission work. Rev. P. H.
McEwen of New Westminster, was
appointed by thc convention to raise
the necessary funds, this year, towards paying the salary and expenses
of a man of continental repntation,
who will be placed in the field to
secure the endowments towards the
work of the correspondence school.
Last year there were sixteen members
enrolled.
The local contributions to the
churches in the Province exceeded
that of the previous year, but owing
to the fact that the subscriptions of
the eastern churches for the western
work showing a decrease, the home
mission fund showed a small deficit.
Their missionary labor chiefly consisted in work among the Japanese
aud renewed efforts are being made
to push the work along more vigorously than in the past. Rev. Mr.
Morgan was appointed the Kootenay
representative on the mission board o.
the convention.

THEY
CANNOT
SUPPLY IT
Tramway Company Refuses
to Light Up Baker
Street.
The  Following Letter Sent
to the  Mayor and
Council.
In explaining its inability to light
up Baker street as it was during the
celebration the Tramway company has
written the following letter to the
City Council:
Gentlemen,���In accordance with
the request of the Mayor, that we
should quote for the supplying ihe
power for 400 odd lights that it is
proposed to erect on Baker street, and
light on holidays and Suurdayn, we
beg to say that in the position we
now find ourselves, we cannot make
you an offer, for as stated in our interview with the Mayor and city clerk
we are not in the same position with
regard to supplying outside power as
we were iu October last, when bidding for tbe street lighting. If the
Council in ofiice after favorably considering our proposal had acted upon
their resolution then, we would now
nlso be able to quote you, I think,
favorable terms. The pioposition at
that time we would remind you wits to
supply 50 are lamps in the chief
streets of thc oity on about the same
terms as in Eastern States. This
would have helped meet the large deficit we are now incurring daily in
running expenses, by using a largei
gross amount of power, thereby bringing about a reduction to our Tramway
costs and a firmer basis of understanding with the power company, and at
the same time enabling the city to
supply power to private consumers,
which is well known to be more profitable than that of street lighting.
Howevei, tbe Council at that time
did not act upon their own resolution
and we were therefore unable to keep
tHe agreement open with the power
company. This result, we at tlie time
deeply regretted and more so now,
for we hoped then or should say,
anticipated, that some future council
would, as you have done, appreciate
our investment, realize our position
and large losses, which are necessarily concurrent with the running of
our street railway, and step in, offering us inducements in the shape of
supplying power in some shape or
form
But the day we now find has apparently gone by when you can help
us in this manner and we must add
that at the present moment we are despondent of our undertaking, and how
we are going to keep the losing proposition favorably in the eyes of our
London investors we at present do
not know.
Thanking you for your favor and
wishing that we were in a position
to lay before you terms winch wc. are
certain would be accepted and beneficial to all concerned We are, gentle
men, yours truly,
A. V. MASON,
Secretary.

Meeting Yesterday at Which
Canners'   Terms   Were
Accepted by Men.
(-PSiCIA-i- TO THE HIRER.)
Victoria, July 10.���The fishermen's
strike on the Fraser was practically
settled today through the efforts of
a committee of citizens. The Grand
Lodge this morning agreed to a settlement on a basis of 12J4 cent for 25 per
cent, of the pack, and 10 cents for the
remainder. All that remains to be
done is for Vancouver lodge to ratify
the action. An official announcement is expected tomorrow and all the
men are likely to start work on Sunday night. Fifty or sixty fish to the
boat were taken last night.
Pat Hayes was run over and cut to
pieces by the C. P. R. freight train,
running out early this morning from
Hastings.
Victoria, July 10.���The Scandinavian settlement at Cape Scott, on ihe
northwest coast of Vancouver island,
is establishing a creamery and cannery, both to be run on co-operative
principles.
Gold has also been discovered on
the beaches of thc Cape similar to
that at Wreck Bay and C. B. Chris-
tenson, thej school teacher there, is
now in the city with seventy dollars
of dust as the resuft of thc labor of
one man. A dyke is being built
across a large lagoon, thus reclaiming
it for pasture lands. The work is being carried out similar to that in
Holland.
Dr Fagan, secretary of the Provincial board of health, prnounces the
Province free of smallpox now with
the exception of a few cases in the
Crow's Nest.
Victoria, July 10.���At a council
meeting yesterday the Cabinet decided
to send two survey parties to find a
route, if possible, through the Hope
Mountains.
Vancouver, B. C, July 10.���The
fishermen's strike was settled tonight.
A committee of citizens acted as intermediaries and suggested that the
fishermen offer to take 12J. oents for
quarter of the pack and 10 cents for
the remaining three-quatrers. The
grand lodge acsepted the suggestion,
and made the offer subject to the ratification of the Vancouver Union, who
had not empowered their delegates to
act. The Vancouver Union ratified
the offer tonight and tbe canners
bave accepted tbe proposition. Salmon have commenced to run.
ON MORNING MOUNTAIN.
J. H. Nickerson has some good
samples from the group of claims ou
Sandy Creek, Morning mountain in
which he is interested. The work on
the property that has already been
done is proving that there undoubtedly is a large body of ore, and although what has beeu sampled so far
only averages from Ju to $!i it is improving with depth and will very
likely prove to be a good proposition.
The first ledge uncovered was 37 feet
in width and since then another, 80
feet wide, has been discoveredj und
traced for a considerable distance.
The ore is composed of iron pyrites,
carrying gold with a iittle galena occasionally. Two men are going up
Monday to start work ou the second
ledge, and strip a portion of it to
see bow the values run. The owners
consider tbey bave made a valuable
find. Sandy Creek on -'hicli tbe property is situated runs into the Koote
nay about three miles below town, a
Government trail'following the course
of the creek from the 40-trail for several miles.

ENGLISH CONSUL DEAD.
San Francisco, Cal., July 10.���W.
Clayton Pickersgill, II. B. M. consul-
general for the Pacific coast states and
territories, died today at a sanitarium in Alamesa to which be wns conveyed on Sunday last from his summer residence in the Santa Cruz

(Correspondence     of     tho   Associated
Press.)
St. Petersburg, July 10.���A burial
from Transbaikalia, named Akhornm-
boat Chwan Dorshieff, who has gained the favor of Daliai Lama of Thibet, came to Lividia lust October
and was received by the Emperor. He
returned to Thibet and succeeded in
persuading the Daliai Lama to send a
speciul mission to St. Petersburg to
open friendly negotiations relations
with this country. This mission has
arrived under the guidance of Dorshieff and has been received by Count
Lamsdorff. It consists of four persons, one of whom ia the Daloao
Lama, second secretary. The Russian
newspapers attach much importance
to this journey and no doubt properly
it marks another step in the extension of Russian influence towards the
Indo-Chinese possessions of France.
The Russians regard the establishment of a chain of communication
across the Indian empire and the permanent Isolation of India from Yang
Tse Kiang as practically assured. Tbe
Novoe Vrcmya regards the sending of
this mission as proof that the prowess
of Russia in Manchuria has penetrated to Thibet and there is no reason to
doubt thut active communications are
maintained between Uiga in Mongolia where another Deliiu Lnma
sitB as regent in Thibet.
This journal thinks it only natural
that Thibet should seek in Russia ��
protector against the "greed of England," oi that other outlying territories of China should turn their faces
toward the" "white Cznr." A good
part of this und much more of the
same sort in other papers is no doubt
written   for   the   Thibetan    visitors.
Women will in future be admitted to
the University of HelMngfors on equal
terms with men. In Russia women
are not, yet admitted to the universities but there are many women col.
leges, some of which are similar in
plan and organization to the Harvard
annex.
Tho Russian press as a whole has
recently displuyed more moderation
and benevolence in its treatment of
the Finnish question thun at any time
since Certain elements in Russia conjured tip tbis spectre of Finnish separation. It is no secret tout the views
of ihe highest circles in Russia have
undergone a change in regard to Finland. While there is no reason to believe there will be a restoration of
Finnish liberties prominently, tho
policy of antagonizing this peaceful
and cultivated people will not be pin-
sued further.
If all rapid trnuBlt plans which
have been launched Into publicity during the lust six months were executed,
St. Petersburg would lend the procession. The latest ure electric railroads

seeking a franchise for tbe underground roads.

Pittsburg, Pa., July 10.���The Htrike

materially changed although many
rumors nre in the air to the effect
that a settlement of the troubles Is
imminent. President Shaffer of the
Amalgamated Association expresses
h's entire satisfaction with the progress of tho battle and says the workers have gained steudily while the
manufacturers havo lost continually

In the four divisions of the Canadian North*t'St, Manitoba, Assiniboia,
Alberta, and Saskatchewan, there
are U'42,KW.IXH) acres of land, nearly
all of which is arable. There arc
large areas of amble land in the
Northwest outside of these divisions.
Ontario and Quebec have still millions of fertile acres that have never
been touched by the hand of man.
Hritish Columbia can grow its own
breadstuifs, whatover its population
mav become. There is thus an enormous area of rich lands still to be
oultivatcd in this favored Dominion
of ours.
Half the acieage of Manitoba, Alberta, Hufikntohewan, und Assiniboiu
would grow wheat enough to produce
all the white Hour consumed on
earth. Canada, which now produces
less than live per cent, of the world's
wheat supply and expoits less than
ono per cent, on an average, could be
mado the grnnury of the world. The
four divisions mentioned could easily
auata'.n a population of ten millions;
they have at present a good deal less
than half a million. The other cultivable areas of Canada that are now lying waste could support another ten
millions. Home time ln the distant
future those waste regions will be oc-
oupied, but we have to look forward
a hundred or two hundred years, befoie we can imagine tnis expectation
to bo fulfilled. The wo.'ld's population will not increase as rapidly the
next hundred years us it did the lust
hundred, for it is observed that as the
nations become more advanced in civilisation tlio birth rate declines. If,
then, we are to wait for tin- operation
ol tho political and s-icial forces that
are at present existing, two centuries
will probably '.-lapse before the waste
places of Canada ure filled with their
prosperous millions of people.
The individual iloes not   bother, for
that is a period far   beyond   the limit
of   his   reckoning.    Hut   the     nation
should bother,   ''eople come and people
go, but the nation   goes   on    forever.
Why should 'Junuda. have to wait   two
centuries, or one,  before she can hope
to soe her   fertile   ucres  occupied nntl
under cultivation?    Is   it not the business uf the men who set up us stntes-
raen to devise inethoils Unit will facilitate development nsinuoh as possible?
Is not that   the   one   duty   to   which
all   others   are    subordinate?       The
growth of the country, of the   Dominion, of the Empire,    in population,  in
enlightenment,   in    muleriul   prosperity.    That Is   (he    business   of   those
who    engage      in     statecraft.      The
United    Kingdom    is   the   lurgst purchaser of foodsLufTs of nil   the nations
of tbe world.    She is uIho   the   centre
of the Britisli Empire, and    is   chiefly
responsible   for    whatever     fortunes
may befall it.    If   the    United  Kingdom were lo impose Hie small duly of
a shilling or a shilling and  a half on
every quarter of whent imported   from
foreign countries,    the    period during
which we might hope to see the wheal
lands of  Cunu.lu    occupied   would   be
reduced to lifly   years   at   the   most.
That woiilil be good   statecraft, for   It
would be   building   up   the   Empire,
making il pi-LLSperoiis and self-.snsluin-
ing and therefore belter able   to  lake
care of itself  in the bustle   nnd   push
and struggle for  supremacy.    A British maiiufu*iiirer object:;  because be is
afraid this Hmall   corn duty   will   Increase the cost of   living   and   put up
wages.   It is rot believed that the duty
would have any appreciable effect   on
thc cost of living,and il It did the experience of Camilla   uniler rtn   present
fiscal policy woulil encourage the hope
that the evil would turn out to   bo  a
blessing.    And    in   any     case,    why
should the interest   of  liritisli traders
bo allowed   to   rank    ns   superior   to
the   Interests   of the   British Empire?
Much a duty   would   put   a    premium

In lust Wednesday's issue of Mr.
Houston's paper, and in the editorial
column, there appeared the following
sentence: "Individuals should not
bo subject to newspaper abuso und
mud-throwing merely because they
arn not friends of the editor." Most
of his readers doubtless smiled as
their eves traversed these few lines,
nnd some of them probubly thougnt
the writer was repenting and had do
termined to mend his ways. In his
paper of yesterday's date be returns to
the "abuso and mud-throwing" to
which ho hus been treating Mr Bernard Macdonald and Mr. Kirby so
liberally during these past few
months. These gentlemen may not be
friends of Mr. Houston's, but neither
that circumstance nor any other can
justify the coarse and abusive language applied to them through his
paper. Tbey are private gentlemen,
engaged in looking ufter the private
interests of the companies that employ them, and while those Interests
muy be subject to criticism under the
circumstances of the present strike,
no respectable newspaper would think
of drugging tbem Into the discussion
as individuals and, in truo rulllanly
terms denounce their actions and impugn their motives. We are
afraid the editor of Mr. Houston's
paper has not yet obtiiiutid the grace
of the converted.
Float from nn exchange: "Professor Macoun, who went to the I'ribi-
lofs to investigate the habits of the
seals on behalf of the Canadian Government some years ago, said in Vancouver that, he hud written to Hud-
yard Kipling a short time ago,
pointing out how, by a coincidence,
one of the Actions of the Anglo-Saxon
writer had been borne out by the
(act. Ill the .Itinglo Hook there is a
tale of the White Seal,' who wandered off from tbe rookeries on Otter Is-
Innd.in llebring Sen, to look for rook
cries where hunters never came. During bis Investigations, Professor Ma
coun found one, nnd only one, family
of white seals, nnd these were on Ot
ter Island."

THOMPSON RIVER DREDGING.
Talks   of
1 ���'. J
Tytler of   Vancouver
Its   Value.
Tin- following, taken from the Vancouver World of July 10th, will be of
particular interest to a number of tlie
citizens of Nelson who have interests
in the districts where the statement
of Mr. Tytler has reference to. The
property referred to as being owned
bv the lloyd company is the same as
that owned by the James River and
ThuiiipVin K1VM Syndicate, which
property was disposed of recently, to
the company now owing it. This
company was originally floated by
Mr. II- Bellamy, of this city (who,
bv the way was the fiist to locate
ciaims in the Thompson River district) auu' controlled by Nelson investors.
j|v. Tytler is the representative of
the lloyd company, of London, Eng.,
anil has just returned from a trip of
inspection of the propery on the
Thompson river and on Jameson
creek.
The following ib the story as told by
thu Vancouver World:
"The properties consist of river,
crock and bench claims, and the surface indications have given from five
cents to 8150 per cubic yard. The
othei day a particular spot on one of
the benches panned out 83 to the
yard, which is very high, and if snch
localities were abundant, great money
would be made. The company has
at present a dredge of the true New
Zealand type, slightly modified to suit
the conditions of this Province. It
will cost 850,000 net and was designed
by F. Satchell Clarke, mining engineer of Vancouver, and formerly of
New Zealand, who is superintending
the work of construction. The
dredge was manufactured by the Wm.
Hamilton Co., of Vancouver and
Peterboro. The capacity of the machine will be 2.000 cubic yards every
24 hours, and will be operated night
and day, with three eight hour shifts.
Mr. lloyd has erected very comfortable camp quarters for the men, and
the work is-proceeding satisfactorily.
The dredge is of the bucket ladder
stylo, specimens of which can he seen
in any barber, and will reach to a
depth of 45 feet under the surface of
the water. The buckets bring up
the gold bearing gravel and deposit it
In revolving screens, 24 feet long and
live leet in diameter. The coarser
passes down the screen and is carried
off by tho taling elevator to a point
far in the stern. The liner materials
containing ihe precious metals of
gold and platinum passes through the
\ screens and is caught on New Zealand
j titbits. The dredge is 100 feet by 35
foot.
"The Thompson is one of the richest rivers in the Province," Mr. Tytler said, "and every claim is taken up
on the North Thompson for a distance
of Mil miles from Kamloops. On tbe
South Thompson the claims are taken
up from Headman's creek to .pence's
Bridge, about 40 miles. The claims in
which Mr. Boyd is interested are
situated about 18 miles from Kamloops
on the North Thompson, and are
reached by two good rouds, one on
each sine of the river.
"The operations which are now being conducted by us are being watched with interest by all those who own
properties on the river and if wo are
successful you may look for a boom
in dredging in that district. Tlio
operations in the Province, so fin,
have been failures, owing to the work
of amateurs, and much experimental
work being,done with dredges. The
gionnd is rich and all that is requited is the right kind of machinery.
Mr, lloyd is acting upon my recommendations, and as 1 said, if successful all the other companies will immediately install plants."

SOME BEAR FACTS.

A Mountain Comedy That Was Precipitated By an Owl.
Two of Nelson's ultra fashionable
people went up the hill the other day
to pick raspbeirles and wild llowcrs.
As can be readily imagined the couple represented both sexes. The excursion proceeded most amiably up to
a cciiain point where u prospector was
wending his way up tho trail. He
met the two people coming down.
The man was away ahead and the
lady was getting along as well as
skirts allowed her to. Each was in a.
very great hurry, the man being to
busy that ho run past the prospector
without hailing him. The lady was
mora considerate. She most heroically Btopped and Implored tbe man
to go back sb a bear was chasing
them, They discussed the matter for
a moment and the lady substantiated
her statement by dlreoting the mining
man's attention to the "horrible
roar" the bear made as ho waa crashing through the underbrush. "Beai?"
said the man in tho overalls, "I think
you are slightly mixed up. The
lhlnK making that noise Is a hoot
owl." uy that time the man who
was deserting tho lady and leaving
her to the terrible fate of being assassinated by thc owl, collected himself and came hack. They talked the
mailer   over for a   few   minutes   and

ley's lanch is turning out some exce'-
lent specimens showing what can be

beisof men from Hritish Columbia.

in one of tlie cogs of thc machine
which drives the crane employed in
the hoisting of the rock for tlie masons. The nail was removed from tbe
finger and the end of the injured
member badly disfigured. A doctor

road.
The ^.ater ir the lake is now nearly
as warm as it will be during the summer, and many boys and men are taking advantage of thej opportunity to
go swimming. One of the things that
Nelson needs is a swimming batli
where the water .oulil be kept at a
comfortable temperature.
No word has yet been received Thy
contractors on the Crow's Nest .Southern as to when tbe work on the new
road will start. It was expected that
some intimation would have been received ere this, as it is said the construction will be pushed through as
rapidly as possible after it is once
started.

taking two bottles I was wholly cured." A trial proves Its ma tab lean
merit tor 11IIS tomauh, Liver and Kidney troubles (inly Mc. Hold by Canada Drug .. Hook Co.
