Interesting Debate at Socialistic
ucational Club on Sunday.
There was a very good attendance
at the Socialistic Educational Club on
Sunday afternoon last when the sub-
jeo "Must Chinese Go?" came up for
dlsoussion. Mr. liroadley was called
to the chair and C. J. Clayton, first
took the door. He dealt principally
with the workingman's view of the
case. He was followed by W. Ebbs,
who dealt with the subject from a socialistic standpoint and favored tbe
stand taken by Bev. Mr. Munroe.
His address was well delivered and
sparkled with wit and wisdom. R.
Robinson gave some extracts from the
report of tbe Commission appointedjon
the Chinese question which were certainly damaging to the yellow man.
Rev. Wm, Munroe followed with a
very telling criticism of the attitude
assumed by the wckingmen on tbe
question and bis remarks met with
more general approval than could naturally be expected from such an audience. He stated tbat the fault of
Chinese competition did not He with
the Chinaman but with the employer,
and with tho latter alone was the remedy. In reply to the charge that the
Chinamen were cowards he said be
did not tliink they were as cowardly
as the "putty beads" who dippped
the Chinaman.ln the lako the other
day. In regard to the morals of the
Mongolian he claimed that notwithstanding the worst that could be said
abont their opium smoking he could
show them equal corruption of morula
in almost any large oity on the continent. He claimed that tbe world was
becoming a cosmopolitan brotherhood.
When Christ came he came as a cosmopolitan. He also stated tbat the
Chinamen were driven out of their
own country at the mouth of the cannon by the aimed hell now In China
and when they Hed fcr refuge to what
was supposed to be the land of thu
free thev were again driven out and
it seemed as if there was no place left
for them but the lake. He then
showed that the condition of the labor
market was au :h that in places where
the Chinamen were not competitors
tbat the makers of chocolate cancels
were working for two and a half and
three cents per day. He claimed for
the sooialistio Club that it stood (or
brotherhood, nnd that it must include
in tbat brotherhocd every man, woman and child irrespective of the color
Kwan, I of his skin or the length of Dis   hair.
The boat from the Crow's Neat on
Tuesday morning brought to the city
a gentleman who will be made very
welcome especially by the mechanics
and /business men of Nelson.
Louis Davianx.the foreman of Vian <Sk
LeMoine, the postofiice contractors,
is here and is staying at La,Jointe's
hotel. He is accompanied by his
wife and family and will remain a
citizen of Nelson until the contract is
completed. They have rented a house
on Car Donate street and will at once
take possession. He iB also accompanied by Mr. A. Payette, his bookkeeper, who will attend to the hnsi
ness part of the contract. It Is the
intention of the contract6ra to hire all
the men for the work locally so far as.
the demand can be met. It is also
tbeir intention to purchase all tbeir
supplies in the city from thu local
dealers, and will not import either
labor or material which can be had
on the ground. It is not likely that
active building operations will commence for a few days as they will require some time to get things Into
shape but as soon as the work van be
got in hand a start will be made.
Their plant has not yet arrived and
until it is here it will be impossible
to do very much. In the meantime
preparations are under way for the
erection of bunkhouses at the quarry
for the stone cutters, who will be required to prepare the stonework for
the lower story. Negotiations are
also ln progress with the business
men for the purchase of supplies and
in the course of a week or ten days the
work will be in full swing. This is
Mr. Payette's first visit to the west
and he is agreeably struck with the
vastness and resources of the great
west. He was favorably impressed,
with the size and solidity of the city
and paid a flattering tribute to the
progress and enterprise of western civilization. Asked as to the length of
time it would take to complete the
contract he could not say but stated
that the work would be continued
until it was completed and would
most likely take a year and possibly
Mud Slides Near Calgary Stop the C.
P. R. Trains.
Calgary, June 25.���The train for
the west got only as 'ar as Shagnapie
Point, four miles from here this evening. There she was stopped by a
tresh mud slide. This morning the
road was clear there and a work tram
went west cleaning smaller slides
which blocked thc track all the
way to Morley. Since then a slide
four feet deep aud ten ynrds long has
arrived and 200 or 300 tons is banked
np behind 1c ready to follow. There
are also three or four feet of other im-
passable patches where the liquid
mud covers the road Iu ever increasing quantity. There are now two
tralnloads of passengers here and only
15 men working on the track between here and Moiley.

President of the W. F. M.
Speaks on the Strike
A Crowded Meeting in the
Opera House Last
Evening. ,
A mass meeting was held in the
opera bouse last eve nng under the
auspices of organized labor for the
purposo of discussing the trackmen's
striko and to hear an address fiom
rjdajflL Boyce of Denver, Col. the
p%mWH0t ot the Western Federation
of Miners. The opera house was
well filled with a representative gathering, although the audience was
largely composed of the labor element.
C. J. Clayton, president of the Nel-
.m Trades and Labor council, occupied the chair and was supported on
the platform by Walter Kee, R. Robinson, R. J. Mowat and others.
The meeting was late in starting
on account of the train from Slocan,
Where the speaker of tbe evening had
been addressing the miners' demon
s'.ration.ha.i been delayed and did not
arrive in the city until nearly 0
Mr. Boyce was the chief speaker,
and after being briefly introduced by
the chairman he was received with
loud applause, His speech was entirely directed to the cause of tbe
striking trackmen which was an appeal to the men individually to stand
together and to organized labor in
general to stand by the track men in
their tight. He reviewed the wage
scale of the men on strike and claimed that they were perfectly justified
in their demands, and urged tbem to
stand firm as they had nothing to lose
and ever] thing to gain. He claimed
lhat if the heada of the corporation
who owned and controlled the situation were compelled to exist on the
miserable pittance they were paying
the men, at the rate of 81.40 per day,
they would be far more lawless than
the men who were now on strike, and
would attempt to bny up all the governments of the country. He claimed
for the strikers the support of the
workingmen and business men of the
city and elsewhere, as it was a matter that affected them au much as it
affected the men themselves. The
time had come . when tbe business
men must stand with the wo.kigmen
as the lines were becoming very distinct between organized labor and organized capital. The question was a
serious one as the average _f the
workingmen was reduced to the lowest possible level, and the corporations were now after the merchants
and the professional men. He showed
how that the industries of Americn
today were practically controlled by
the Standard Oil company which was
in the hands of two, or three capitalists, whose greedy talons were being
extended to the railway, smelter, and
aiming industries of Canada, and
who in a few short years will be able
to dictate their own terms. It Is now
time, he remarked, that the working-
men and business men of this country
should ask how much longer will
this thing continue. The history of
all nations showed that when the
wealth of the community waa accumulated by a few that these industrial
questions were not  settled  peucenbly.
Referring to the bem .icioi.ee of Carnegie and Rockefeller In o.stal Hahlng,
libraries and universities he said it
was only another of the schemes of
capital ta throw dust in the eyes of
the people, as thc money they were
thus distributing had been obtained
by tho most gigantic system of robbery ever known to history. The
money was never earned by them but
by their canniness nnd shrewdness
they had robbed the producer of their
rightful earnings. In concluding
liia address he pledged the financial
support of the Miners' Federation to
thc strikers In their fight and called
upon all the labor organizations to
support them with their sympathy and
help. He earnestly warned them to
stand firm and to refrain from vio
lence as they had everything to lose
by anything of that naturo. He read
telegrams from Montreal, Revelstoke
and Vancouvei declaring that they
-tore all   standing   lirm and  that  all
new comers wero  being   buttonholed,
The   following     resolution     which
j was   moved   by   Walter Kee and sec-
I onded  by   Robert   Robinson was   put
and   carried   without    a    dissenting
voice, the majority   of   those   present
1    Whereas, The Canadian Pacific Railroad Company having refused to grunt
the just demands of their   track   employees, and :
Whereas,Iu the opinion ot the laboi
organizations of this city the increase
in wages requested by thc track em-
ployees is not an exorbitant request
and further that thc scale of wages
paid railroad laborers by the Canadian Pacific railway company is much
below the scale of wages paid common labor for a ten-hour day by othei
companies operating in B. C, and;
Whereas, We believe in a fair da_'s
wage for a fair day's work, there
fore be it
Resolved, That the Trades and Labor unions in the City of Nelson
pledge their sympathy and i' need be
their undivided support to the Canadian Pacific railrond truckmen in their
struggle for a living wage.

The Preliminary Heats to Be-
Rowed on Thursday
a I
Sectionman on Great Northern
Creston Junction Injured.
A distressing accident occurred
Creston Junction on Monday night,
which resulted in a section man named
Randall having both legs severed. He
and thc section foreman, who were
employed on the Great Northern line,
were approaching the Junction on n
speeder and endeavored to make it
before the passenger train. They
miscalculated the distance that the
train was from them with the result
that it collided with them while going at full speed. The head light of
the engine did not show the engine.r
tho speeder in time to avert the accident. When the tinin was brought
t<> a standstill it was found that Randall bad both legs cut off aud that the
foreman escaped without any injuries. Randall was taken to the Junction where he received attention.
An elderly man carrying a walking
stick like a miniature barber's pub,
has been attracting a good deal of
attention around town the last few
days by carrying on a continuous conversation with himself, when he can
und no one else to listen to him. Last
evening ho was explaining aloud how
easily he could cut his throat, if only
he was not afraid to do so. He does
not seem at nil dangerous, and is
said to be suffuriug from the effects of
a prolonged drmiK.

Even the most enterprising and
sensational of cisatlantic journals
will soon have to make it a rule to
pick up pointers from the newer jour
nalism of London. The Empire of
that world's metropolis, which has
passed into the* editorial :ontrol of
Mr. Ilolnnd lielfort, lias invented a
process of interviewing by scent,
slightly diluted with that inductive
process made famous by Mr. Sherlock
Holmes. A specimen of the product
cannot he'p but prove of interest:
"Last Sunday afternoon about three
o'clock a certain house in St. James's
Square received three mysterious visitors. They were Mrs. Roth a, Mr.
Chamberlain, and Lord Milner. Honestly, I cannot say what transpired
in that house. For The Empire does
not possess the mendacious perspicacity of The Daily Mail. Rut it may
bo noted that the inte.view lasted
two hours and that Mrs. Botha went
away in a very quict-looklng equipage���one of those vehicles usually let
ont at half-a-crown an hour. Lord
Milner discreetly walked from the
mysterious house to a spot very close
to the Duke of York's statue. Mr.
Chamberlain remained in the house
an hour longer. When he did emerge
it was with a lady. That lady was
not Mrs. Chamberlain. They walked
across tho Park. Arrived in Downing
Street, Mr. Cnamberlain very gallantly installed the lady in an exquisite miniature brougham of Parisian
design, driven by a coachman who
looked as aristocratic as his mistress.
The brougham disappeared in the
direction of Whitehall. Mr. Chamberlain lighted a cigar and strolled back
across the Park. Whether he returned straight to Prince's Gardens or
went to his club there is no need to
particularise. No observer could deduce from his demeanor whether or
not he was satisfied with his interview with the poor little peasant woman on whom the Ministers of this
mighty British Empire appear to be
basing their hopes of an ultimate triumph in South Africa. Perhaps she is
fooling them as all the rest of the
Boers have fooled them !''

Manitoba is scorned on all sides.
Some one suggested that West Algo-
ma should be annexed to that Frov-
nce, whereupon the people of Port Arthur exhibit all the symptoms of very
violent anger and disgust. We saw
a short time ago that Assiniboia
spurned the outstretched hand. The
Indians of Keewatin are yet to hear
from, but it is believed tbat a proposal to annex them to Manitoba
would send them flying to the Esquimaux border line.
The Doukhobor creed is simplicity
itself. Here it is as given by Comte
de Oobineau : "There is to be no positive religion, in order to avoid intolerance and persecution ; no marriage,
in order to have no adultery; no constraint upon appetite, in order to
crush thoroughly the revolts of the
flesh; and, lastly, the systematic
abandonment of all intellectual culture, a hateful pursuit which, ending

There are four incidents without
parallel connected with Lord Miluer's
peerage, says a London journal. Lord
Milder Is the only man whose peerage has ever been gazetted within
four or live days of its conferment,
He is tho lirst peer who has taken
his title from lodgings| the first
statesman who, having been received
on bis arrival in London by almost
the whole Ariiuinistiatioii, was taken
on directly to the Sovereign ; the lirst
guest within memory who, having
been invited to dine and sleep nt
Windsor Castle, has been commanded
to stay another night.
ThO energetic ollicials of the Census
Department have been able to ascertain the population of two divisions
of Toronto, the Centre and Kast. It
is expected the others will be known
by the tunc the next snow llios. The
figures are very disappointing, ln
Toionto Kast the Increase during tho
decade Is exactly six per cent., while
in the Centre is has been less than
three per cont. Such a wretched
showing could be borno if Montreal
were no better, but with thc splendid
growth of the rival city In evidence

Editor Mirier:
Sir,���I have read in your paper of
the 22nd inst. that the trackmen in
the Kootenay district were striking
simply in sympathy with the eastern
men and not because they have any
personal grievance. 1 wish to make
your valuable paper the means of setting the public right on this matter.
The western trackman has more
greivances than his eastern brother.
Between the Increased cost of living
and the scant accommodations provided for him his lot is the harder of
the two. To work on a section here
he must as a rule cook his own food,
wash his own clothes and do all this
work after a 10-hour day. and he is
paid 81.40 per day. Now re the wage
scale, trackmen west of Fort William
ware paid 81.25 per day on main
line through to Vancouver, except
Winnipeg yard 81.40. On the C. N.
P. railway from Dunmore to Cranbrook, 81.25; Cranbrook to Sirdar,
81.40; Kootenay branches, 81.40; ltobson to Midway, 81.5U; foremen 855 per
month; medical fees 81.00; house
rent where paid 85 per month, making his actual wuge 840. Now 1 will
give you an insight Into our grievances. A foreman might work overtime at slides or washout to the extent of five or six days in a month
but would not receive any pay for it.
Since our committee interviwecd the
management, overtime has been granted ilHting troin Muy 1st, 1801. I know
a man who worked on a section at
Slocan City for three weeks In April
and then drew his time cheque, paid
his board and had 81.20 left. A section hand 'cannot board nt boarding
house or hotel. If he is single ho usually batches in some shack. Right
in Nelson there are cabins 10x12 foct
with eight anil iu some cases lo men
living In them. A few miles eust of
Michel I saw a watchman living in
a cabin Sxs feet. He had to cook,
eat and sleep In that space. Out
girevancoH are real, not fancied. The
schedule presented by our committee,
although asking for an increuse in
the Ingest item of 50 cents per day,
still leaves our wages boloiv the wage
paid to any class of labor throughout any loculitv traversed by the C�� P.
Railway. T. G, M'MANAMON.

Editor Miner:
Sir,���It is strange in this land of
big things there are no records kept
of the very highest mountain and the
very biggest mountain; the highest
tree and the biggest tree; the biggest
whale and the biggest sturgeon ever
caugbt; the biggest moose,the biggest
cariboo and the biggest bear ever
killed. This would make most interesting reading <vith proper data. As
far as fish and animals are concerned
it has been possible to collect a few
rcords of animals and lish supposed
to be the biggest ever killed in their
line, but the data is very imperfect
and this article is written mo . with
a view of causing a discussion over
the matter and thereby securing information that might eventually lead
to the compilation of an authentic
list of record lish and animals and
possible big catches and bags that
would be invaluable to sportsmen in
the way of comparison. If any one
who reads this article in Nelson who
has accurate knowledge of record
catches of big fish or big game captured in Hritish Columbia and would
add to the small list set down here or
prove the statements made to be accurate, their communication will
receive the attention of tlie writer
with a view to his eventually being
able to compile an extended and more
accurate list,
According to .lohn 1'ngh, taxeder-
mist, Vancouver, the biggest bear ever
skinned was killed by a hunter,whom
he engaged but whoso name he cannot remember. The bear was shot
near Albeini It was a grizzly and
weighed 1,200 pounds. Its skin,
whicli he sold from his store, measured 11 feet. One man ;ould not lift the
hind quarter of this bruin and the
pad ou bis foor, measured nearly 12
inches. Mr. I'ugb also claims to have
tlie biggest cariboo antlers and head
ever set up. The antlers are six feet
apart anil have 48 points. Another
authority claims that a bigger eaii-
hoo bead ornaments ihe Union Club,
Victoria. This is disputed. The biggest moose antlers are also said to be
io Victoria. There are three on exhibition in that city very much aline,
measuring over seven feet between the
horns. The exact measurement is not
known. The anima's were killed by
Mr. Reed of Victoria, but the locality
where these magnificent roonarebs of
the forests feil is not known here,
Tbe biggest sea lion ever killed,
according to Mr. S. Fader, Vancou
Ver, wasjbrought down by himself af-
tei a desperate hunt, set up, and presented to the Vancouver free libraiy.
It weighed over 1,000 pounds. Mr.
Fader also lays e'aiin to having
caught the biggest whale ever landed
from Hritish Columbia waters, and
his story of thu oapture Is an interesting one. The whale was 03 feet
in length anil 14 feet through, and ils
jaw bones still adorn the ojd fish
stand on Cordova street formerly occupied by Mr. Fader. Mr. Fader
states tbat after they had harpooned
his loidsnip���it was about five years
ago this happened���the monster settled
down fcr his desperate struggle for
life and dragged boat aud occupants
for hundreds of miles sometimes furiously, souioimes at an easier pace.
Starting near Howe Sound the whale
pulled them noany to Victoria, then
to Nanaimo, then up to Squamish and
hack lo Vancouvor again. The desperate a'.rnggle for liberty was kept
up for 12 hours, night Bnd day, and
the whalers ate and slept in the boat
and stayed with the huge fellow until
ho collapsed from exhaustion, and
luck of food. Even then his dying
struggles were tciillllc.
Tie luigcst salmon evor caught
with a Ily was landed by Sir Peter
Mnsgravo. It was of course a spring
salmon. It weighed H!5 pounds. It
is now on exhibition in England.
Mr. Edwards, the Vancouver photo-
gniplicr, however, states that the
Skeena ltiver (auning company had
him photograph a spring salmon
caugbt in a not last yuar that was
weighed by himself and found to tip
the scales at U0 po'intlB, three ounceB.
It is claimed that, the largest scekcyc
e..r caught "us 14W pounds, but
mmy have b< cn caught in nets weighing that. The largest halibut ever
landed is claimed by the New England Fish Cu. The Clove Canning and
Cold Storage Co. statu that the larg-
est stuigcon ever caught according to
report weighed 1,000 pounds, but they
have no particulars of the fish. The
big Clove Canning Co.'a sturgeon
weighed 087 pounds. A photograph
was taken of this monster which Is
being used for advertising purposos.
Last but not least is a record scow
" load of spring Balmoii photographed
last year, and proudly boasted of by
Messrs. Farrell at Treiigent the canners. The secw load contained 12
tons of salmon and every salmon
weighed over 85 pounds. It Ib to be
hoped that when more light is thrown
on this   Interesting   subject that   tne
errors in this list may he pointed out
and a more complete list   secured.

A Good Time in Store For Everybody
at Norris A Rowe's Circus.
The world'B greatest animal trainers, Norris & Rowe, will exhibit their
big Trained Animal shows in this
city next Monday afternoon and evening under their enormous waterproof tents which will be located in
the C. P. R. yards. Performances
will be given at 2 and 7 p. m. There
new grand free spectacular street
parade will be given on the morning
of the exhibition at which time the
entire company of over 300 animal
actors will be seen. Prominent among
this season's special features are
Prof. Winston and his 810,000 school of
trained seals. The little animals play
all kinds of musical instruments,shoot
guns, swing batons, catch caps on
their slippery heads and perform
many other equally wonderful acts.
This is said to be the most
wonderful animal act in existence.
Doc Miller and his educated elks, the
five pony tandem races; chariot races;
the wonderful performances of the
smallest elephants in thc world. This
IS beyond doubt the moat marvellous
elephant act ever introduced into tented amusements; Alcxas, the only
trained African zebra in the world,
the wonderful performances and acts
of the seventy beautiful Shetland
ponies, and the new and novel animal
Are department. This is an act tbat
you never saw before, it is absolutely
new. A monkey, even in his native
untrained state is a well-spring of
fun tocvery man, woman and child.
How much more so then, by the cunning aid of man, they are taught to
perform acts that are ludricous in the
extreme and tricks and antics whose
provocation to laughter is irresistible. For comioality and diversity of
absurd tricks the multitude of monkeys with the Norris A Rowe's
shows are beyond the power of language to desoribe.

You will be told that Ready-made Clothing is equal to
Tailor-made Garments ready-to-wear.
Did you ever consider that the inside of a garment is
like the works of a clock ? A suit may look well on the
surface, but if inferior in workmanship, it will soon be
found wanting.
In many instances the Ready-made Clothing of to-day
is thrown together in sweat shops and has trimmings of
inferior quality. Can you expect such Clothing to wear or
hold its shape ?
We have been tried and have stood the test. A few
years ago we founded Tailor-made Garments in the Dominion and to-day, after the expenditure of time and money,
we have achieved perfection in the manufacture of Tailor-
made Clothing ready-to-wear.
Our registered Brands of Tailor-made Garments are
