to
The preparations for thc Dominion
Day sports ure progressing smoothly,
U��e committees aru hard at work, anil
the indications ure that the forthcoming event will eclipse all picvious
efforts along thejsame line. Most of
the committees hnve already elaborated their plans and arc only waiting
the report of the finauco committee to
be in a position to make definite announcements regarding the sports
which their committees weie appointed to arrange.
Notwithstanding the business depression which is affecting the trade
of the country at the present time
thoie appears to be no depression in
the enthusiasm wiiich oharac orized
the Dominion Day celebrations of
previous years.
Only a portion of tho work of the
finance committee bus yet heen concluded but It is expected that by thc
early pint of next week this part of
the programme will be wound up,
when tbe various commitees will complete their labors snlliciently to bo in
a positiou to permit of the general
programme being published at un
early date.
Tho tiniiuee committee has been
sub divided into three committees and
the work of collecting has been divided among them. Fred -turkey and
Percy Chapman aro soliciting the
wholesale merchants anil thins with
good results.

.ens have not yet been on their rounds
but are expected to complete this part
of the work today or Monday. The i
committee having In charge the trades I
procession have arranged nn excellent programme of interesting events,
chief among which will be the prize
UOmmltteeS{baby competition. The judge for
. this feature of the occasion will be
imported from some outside point an.i
will be exported and quarantined on
the outside of the city for one year
and will be exonerated from acting ir,
this capacity for the rest of his life,
after his decision has been renderec,
No ono as yet has been selected for
this most responsible but onerous
duty, but R. T. Lowery, the versatile
editor of the New Denver Ledge, is
spoken of in this connection as an expert judge of this class of exhibit,
and may, be appointed to act. The
decision will be given in writing and
will not be opened until the one giving it is out of harm's way, and the
prize being offered will be a gold
medal.
In addition to thc above a lithographed diploma will be awarded the
best representative float for each trade
represented and a 8150 cup in addition
for the best business float in the
parade.
The water carnival   committee   are
asking un appropriation of $750 and a
grand display of   fireworks   will take
place on the opposite side of the lake,
which will cost   in the   neighborhood
of 8235.    They   have also arranged   to
offer  prizes   for   the   best   decorated
launch, two prizes', also two prizes for
the best decorated boat i and one prize
each   for   the   best d;coratcd   sailing
boat, musical boat,   and   best   comic
beat  or   canoe,    the   total   value   of
prizes amounting to the sum of   $300.
It is tbe intention  of   the  committee
to have two processions instead of one
as last year us a much better  display
can be had if   handled  in   this  manner.   In   order   to   ascertain as  near
as nearly as  possible   the number   of
those who are  likely   to   decorate,   a
circular letter has   been sent   to  each
one known to bo interested ln aquatic
sports asking him to notify  the   committee if he will assist in tins respect
in making the carnival a   success.    It
is also suggested that the   large C. P.
K. barge   should   be secured and   arrangements   made   for a  fancy  dress
ball to be given thc   night of the carnival.    Captain (lore, Dr. Laliau   and
K.   W. Matthews   were   appointed   a
committee to draft, tho programme and
course of  the procession.   The whole
of the   carnival   committee   will meet
the early part   of   thc   week   to complete their plans ns it is expected that
the   finance   committee will   be in   a
position to   announce   the   result    of
their ennvns.
Tho reception committee have had
a meeting and have made provisional
plans but tire awaiting the announcement of tho finance committee before
making nny dellnte arrangements.
So far the outlook is encouraging
and given line weather and burring
accidents the first celebration of Do'
minion Day in Nelson in the reign of
tho new King will surpasB all
previous records.

A FEAT FOU  HIS F-ET.
A Destructive   Cure Attomptcd Ily an
Old   Kootenay  Prospector.
(SPECIAL. TO THE MINER.)
Victoria, May 31.���W. P. Evans
was brought, today before a police
magistrate this morning charged
with breaking n piulu glass window.
The prisoner made thU statement that
his net was performed to draw the
attention of the authorities to his
condition, he having just been
released from thc hospital and
suffering so with his feet that he was
unable to hobl a job. lie hnd no
means of Bupport and his sufl'crlng
was oxcrncintlng from the pain in his
feet, and made him feel like committing suiolde. He had been wandering
about the provinoe since 181)3, worked
on the V. and S. railway, on placer
eluiiuB at Ashcroft, prospected in Cariboo and Kootenay, worked for tho
C. P. R. nt Robson and at Brooklyn,
and in the   mines at.   Mountain creek.
Owing to the trouble in his feet he
came down to Vimtouver where he
was In the hospltal.Wterwards working as a longshoreman, Later he was
in thc hospital at Revelstoke with fever
and this spring he spent a long time
In Jnbiloc hospital here. Magistrate
remanded him for a day to consider
the case.
Robert Currle, charged with Incest,
was sentenced to eighteen months by
Mr. Justice Walkein this morning.
W. F. Bennett, of Camborne,   England who arrived in the city   on Wednesday evening and is staying   at  the
Hume, is now making his  third business tour through   this  countiy,   and
in a sh.rt interview with   a   reporter
last evening intimated that the object
of his visit at the present time was in
tlie interests of   the firm of   which he
is one of the   principals.    He   has recently visited the Transvaal and other
pointB on similar errands and is doing
an extensive   business   in the mining
districts of the empire.    He expressed
himself as well pleased with   the   ad
vantages of this   portion   of the hem
(sphere and   predicted that sooner   or
later it would become one of the most
important fields for investment.    Asked   the   impressions   of the people   of
the old country in   reference  to   this
country us   a   field lor investment  he
stated that at the present time British
Columbia   was   suffering   on   account
of several drawbacks.    The   flist   was
that other fields of enterprise appeared to offer better   inducements for investment.    Must notable among  these
was the Transvaal,   which hud,   dnr
iug tbe last few   yearB   attracted  the
capitalists   of   the   nution,   and   had
yielded   large     dividends,    However,
he   believed    that   British   Columbia
would   evcntuallly   attract   investors,
uot only on   account   of   its great resources but also on   account of Its climatic conditions, whiaih   are   unquestionably superior to thut of the South
African    mining    districts.   Another
thing, in his opinion,which had n.ili-
tuted against the flow of capital   into
British   Columbia   wus the fact  that
the country lacked a proper representation in the financial  centres of England, and that thc English people did
not   grasp   tho    great    opportunities
which the country possessed.   A third
condition of the west, which,   in  his
opinion, had   seriously   affected   and
practically frightened capital was the
labor  troubles  which   had   agitated
the west   during the lust   few   years
Asked if he regarded the   labor   trou
bles of the west as of a   mote  serious
character   than  those  existing in the
old   country   either   now,   or at   any
time, he admitted that   the condition
of the labor   market   even there  was
anything but  settled   or satisfactory.
Accompanying   thc   gentleman above
referred to is   al. M. Holman.   also  of
Camborne,    Eng., of   the firm of Holman Bros., manufacturers  of   mining
machinery.   The   firm with which he
is identified have un extensive connection in West Australia,   Brazil,   Costa
Rica,   Nicaragua   and tho Transvaal,
and he Is now   making   a  tour of the
Kootenays  tor   the   purpose of introducing a   patent   Cornish rock   drill.
It is supplied   in   large  quantities to
the Transvaal under name of the Ilan-
ket drill.    His agent reports thut 'already they have made a demonstration
at the Centre Stui   mino  in   Rossland
and claim that the application of their
invention to the mining operations of
II. 0. will revolutionize the system of
mining   in    British   Columbia.    The
drill they are  introducing is calculated to perform what every  drill manufacturer hus claimed heretofore as absolutely Impossible, viz.,to handle the
dlorltc rock by 'anything else than   a
double bit, but   which thoy  claim   to
be in   a   position   to operate  with   a
single   one.    He   with his   agent   R.
Mnchiii. Ib now an route to East Kootenay where they will  demonstrate at
the St. Eugene mine, after which they
propose to make similar   tests   at   the
mines of the Dominion Copper   Co, at
Phoenix, at which point   they  expe.t
to meet a number  of  mine  managers
who   arc desirious of witnessing  the
test.
Mr. nolman will only remain in the

from the safe���the same that still

tact with the business end of a gun.
Mr. Murks' dignity '.'.'lis decidedly
milled, in fact he was annoyed, and
told the burglar so. But il wus pitih
RalSmg Cf  the NelSOn   Hotel ij~.k in the partly completed building
and as the burglar could not see how
really annoyed Mr. Marks looked, he
held the gun so that Mr. Marks breathed down its barrel. The bold, bad,
bnrglur threatened to blow out the
brains of the indignant Marks if he
made a sound, but Marks simply said
that that wus a joke on the burglar
and gave one long drawn out shout,
for "Boh!" "Bob!" came. It was
Hob Wincarls and he swung a chair.
It was pitch durk in the building snd
Bob threw the chair with such force
at the first movement ho detected that
he narrowly missed killing Murks
and made a mark in the bar that it
still carries. The burglar is running
yet ;and next morning they lit the
fire with the chair. Hob says the only
part of it that wasn't broken wus
the space between the rungs.
How A. J. Marks Paid a Long
Standing Debt to J. A. Gilker Yesterday.
(Continued ou Third Page.)
When the Nelson hotel���c the   first
installment of it���was erected in   the
summer of 1889 it   was a most pretentious affair.    Before it was  opened J.
F.  Ward's   log   cabin   was  the   only
hostelry   to   satisfy   the    solid    and
liqiud cravings of the Inner   man and
to supply a -hake down for the weary
prospector who wandered into the little buig   from the neighboring  hills.
A. 3.     Marks   is   net   a monopolist.
When he makes forty or filty   million
dollars he will   retire   and   let others
have a chance. This spirit of antagonism to monopolies   led him   to put up
a palatial structure   that   now- forms
half of the Nelson  Hotel.   The  next
summer   he   built  the other half and
it has since stood as  one of  Nelson's
oldest   landmarks.    It   was the  more
noticeable because it  sank  dejected 1}
a conple of feet below the level of the
sidewalk,     while     the     neighboring
buildings, not as.pretentious and only
frame affairs thamselves,kcpt proudly
on the level   of the modern stone  and
brick     blocks.   But  yesterday things
[changed.   The old Nelson shot up and
is now even with tbe  best   of   them.
Contractor   Gillette  had the  work in
hand and did not   take long about it,
and thus tha last  visible sign of  the
historic value of the famous  hostelry
has disappeared.   But not so with the
meino-ies.    While  the  building   was
undergoing the   process of  modernizing a l'ttle  knot   of old   timers were
constantly in front of it and many and
varied were the reminiscences related.
But the most pleasing   feature of the
day was the  opportunity it gave Mr.
Marks of paying a long standing debt
to J. A, Gilker.    When tbe nrst   part
of the building was erected, that now
occupied hy the Nelson Cafe.asill was
required for thc front of it to rest upon. Mr. Marks crossed to Jim (Hiker's
lot across   the trail  and cut down  a
large tree that   met all   requirements
when it waa  hewn   into   the   resemblance of a log.   Jim   was  mad.   He
was particularly fond of that tree aud
told Marks so  in  no  uncertain manner.    Marks was   sorry   but he  could
not tell a lie.    He  confessed that  he
did it   with   his   little  hatchet  and
would put the tree back if  he  could.
Yesterday an old   log, much  decayed,
was rolled onto Baker street  and   lay
in thc gutter.   Mr. Marks  went over
to  the handsome modern store of Mr.
Gilker, which stands  on   the lot   the
tree came from, took that   gentleman
by the   arm, led  him to the log  and
said,  impressively :
"Jim, I will make what retribution
lean. Take your damned old tree."
If he doesnt, Mr, Murks will have
to move It. It was in the old building that Sir William Van'Home, then
plain "Mr.," stuyed when he first
came into Nelsou on a placid mule
which carried him from RobBon and
deposited his few hundredweight of
perspiring advoirdupois before thc
bar. It was hot and he wasn't in tho
best of humors, so when the 0, P. R.
engineer spread out the carefully prepared plan of the C. P. R. 's proposed
line Irom Robson to Nelson, the railway president changed the whole
thing by switching the line down
to the watei's edge because it would
be easier to build it there than up
higher where the plans called for.
The weather and the mule that day
cost the C. P. B many thousands of
dollars for It has taken a fortune to
straights, out the unsatisfactory line.
I'm not in favor of building this
line at all," said Mr.Van Home,when
Bob Winearls aBked him to have another. "1 don't believe in running
lines into every confounded hole In
the country."
The company now is pulling a great
deal out of this confounded hole.
One night in 181)0, when the now
addition was beiBg built and shortly
after the C. P. R. agent had beon held
up for 85,000 by a highwayman of
liiirguiarions proclivities, Mr. Marks
went Into the new part to get a watch

to Ay res Flats, a distance of tea
miles. They had dinner there and
afterwards boarded a train fori here,
a little before tlie arrival of the enraged farmer. The Coaticook police
arrested the couple on their arrival
here on instructions fiom the girl's
father. They were taken to the KIon-
dyke hotel aud imprisoned in the
parlor, a policeman being stationed at
the door to prevent their cscupe befoie
the arrival of thc enraged patent.
Several drummers wbo were guests
at the hotel, seeing the plight of tlie
couple, planned an escape. A ladder
was placed under thc parlor window
and the prisoners were quietly assisted to the ground, a team was secured
and the couple again started on their
rapid ride for liberty and happiness.
The now thoroughly angry father arrived shortly after, but the fleeing
lovers were then safely beyond his
reach.

STOCK-TAKING   SALE.
Our fiscal year ends on the 31st of this month, and in order to reduce
our  sto.k as  much as possible before then we offer the  following-
SPECIAL   BARGAINS
I Extraordinary Offer
We have about twenty pieces of
THE LEAD REFINERY.
Somesvherc in Cnnniln a lead refinery is to be erected in tlie near future. The bonus as asked for by the
silver-lead int-.-reBts of Kootenay was
not granted by the Dominion Government ; but the bonus as given is ample to attract capital for the enterprise; as during the five years that it
will be in effect tlie refinery should
easily earn 8450,000. The purpose of
the delegation whioh recently visited
Ottawa was to secure a refinery, and
tnis it undoubtedly did. As yet no
statement has been made us to the
people who will erect it, or the place
where it will be erected, but it may
be taken for granted that the C. P. It.
will take advantage of the bounty.
The manager of the Company's smelter
ut Trail spent some weeks at Ottawa
urging the passage of a bounty measure, and it is understood that the
Company is now completing arrangements for the erection of the plant.
The question of location has been
one of great speculation, and of vast
importance to the different points that
might be suitable. If private capital were to erect it, it is likely that a
spot on either the Atlantic or Pacific
seaboard would be ehosen.as it would
be cheaper to ship the matte out by
freight than the refined lend by
freight and precious metals by express. The C P. B., however, with
the transportation problem in its own
hands to solve, will probably build
nearer the silver-lead eampB, and it is
likely Trail will be favored, where
the refinery would be part of the big
plant already there.
If the decision is mude in favor of
the Interior there is every reason why
Nelson should be selected. It has
every requirement from a refinery
standpoint, and a municipal bonus of
8100,000 would no doubt do a very
great deal towards deciding the Cotri-
pany to locate here. The va��t importance to Nelson of securing the
refinery need not be dwelt upon. It
wonld make Nelson the most important mining centre in the Interior, and
tend to attract to it any additional
smelters which tho development of
the Bilver-load mining industry will
require.
Can Nelson afford to pay 8100,000
for the refinery'.' That is the ques
ton which the taxpayers should care
fully consider, and if the decision is
ln the affirmative immediate steps
should be taken to put it  into   effect

"The attention of thoso persons
who take an interest in Hritish Columbia mines is so devoted to Eosb-
land that, the other districts do not
receive the notice which they merit."
Wo aro g'ad to see this acknowledgment in an English publication, and
especially in a mining journal of tho
high standing of Thc Co'onial Gold-
fields Glaze tte. There is hope thnt this
disposition to overlook the claims of
other districts to notice and consideration will be corrected. KoBSland has
a good mine or two, but it does not
constitute the whole of Hritish Columbia by any means. It is high time
Enlgishtnen who are interested in
mining should get this fuct freely circulating in then* heads.
Customs returns arc usually accepted as an infallible indicator of the
state of trade. The imports for May
last year, as entered at the Port of
Nelson, were valued at 847,240; for
May this year they arc 888,100, or an
inerease of forty per cent. Mere
words could not speak with the sig-
ni-aunce of these figures of the splen
did growth of trade of the Nelson
distriot during the past year.
The Mayor of Kaslo is not so sleepy
as to bo ignorant of Ihe fact that the
retail dealerH of Nelson made nn
agreement several weeks ngo to close
their places of business on ThurHiluy
afternoons during the summer months.
To assume this is to suggest that ho
does not read the newspapers, which
his Worship will ho '.nclined to regard as a very  doubtful   compliment.
They arc rather slow on the Coast.
Barges for the -conveyance of freight
cars have been in operatiou on Kootenay and Arrow Lakes for Beveral
years, but it is only now it huB occurred to Victoria that they might be
profitably employed in establishing
freight connection with the mainland.
They have just started work on the
first fifteen oar barge, and are exceedingly happy over it.
It was a very neat retort that Sir
Wilfrid Laurier made to Mr. Bourassa
when the latter opposed the five dollar
per ton bounty on refined lead, claiming that it should be but two dollars,
and that, as it stood,the bounty "was
going altogether too far." The Premier asked him if he thought rt was going too fai because it was going to
British Columbia. This is not quite
as much of a joke as the members
seem to have regarded it.
The Slocan Drill is justly elated
over the fact that the Arlington mine,
one of the closest properties to the
newest city, is about to distribute
820,000 in profits to tbe shareholders.
This property can be taken as a sample of what faithful development will
do in mining in British Columbia. It
has been worked only a year, has
shipped 1,505 tons of ore this year and
takes its place among the substantial
dividend payers.

A LUCKY FIND.
What proved to be a more profitable find than gold happened the other day to a traveller from San Francisco, while at lunch in one of the.
leading restaurants in Nelson. He
ordered a portion of Pumpkin pie,
when to his astonishment his appe-
titie, which he bad lost fifteen years
ago in Arizona, suddenly returned to
him, with renewed vigor. The pie
had a very solid texture and a rich
mellow flavor. The cook informs us
that it was made from "The Morse
Pumpkin Flour." None other juBt as
good.    Insist on "The Morse Brand."
A GOOD THING.
German Syrup ib the special prescription of Dr. A. Boschree, a celebrated German Physician, and is acknowledged to bo one of the most fortunate discoveries in Medicine. It
quickly cures Coughs, Colds and all
Lung troubles of the Btvercst nature,
removing as it does the cauae of the
affection and leaving the parts in a
strong and healthy condition. It is not
un experimental medicine, but has
stood the teBt of years, giving satisfaction in every case, which us
rapidly increasing sule every season
confirm-. Two million bottles sold
annually. Boschree's German Syrup
wns introduced in the United States in

MISCELLANEOUS
CANADIAN TRADE POR CANUCKS.
It Is often said that corporations are
soulless,  that, they have no patriotism
and tbat   business   is   business   with
them regardless  of   whom   they   may
hurt.    This can liavdly be said of   the
C. 1J. R. for it has adopted as a motto
for   its   steamer   service     "Canadian
Trade for   Canadians,"
suit that   It   is   now   carrying   on   a
'  meriy and  costly   war   on the North
Pacific In which it   is not fighting for
business for the C. 1'. R., but for business for Canadians, a  business which
rightly   belongs   to them   and   which
they   would have never lost hud othet
companies been as   patriotic as the C.
P. R. has proved.
While the C. P. N. Co. was under
quBBi-American control the transportation businoss to northern ports wns
so manipulated as to throw nearly all
the Yukon and Alaska trade into the
hands of Seattle wholesalers to the
almost total exclusion of Victoria and
Vancouvei nouses, and it bid fair to
remain so until tbe C. P. R. took over
tbe boats and business cf that com
pany,
compelled lo return in tho   very   near
future.
Mr. Holman expressed himself as
well pleased with tlie country and is
much impressed with tbe very permanent nature of the plants erected,
and expressed his intention of returning at somo nst very distant date
with his wife, when ho will bo in a
position to take a more leisurely observation of the possibilities of the
great west.
After completing his experiments
iu the Boundary country they will
proceed to Mount Bicker on Vancouver island, and Alberni, before their
return to the motherland.

striving to retain for them what they

their share of the Northern trade, a
trade which naturally belonged to
British Columbians, and a trade
which would never have been lost bad

Surely times must be bad when
the police are complaining about the
dullness of trade.
REAL ESTATE DEAL-
E. Ii. McDermid yesterday disposed
of three lots in block BO on Hoover
street to George Uunt. The deal was
put through by H. A M, Bird.
WON BY TIIE MYTH���
The handsome silver cup won by
the Nelson yacht, the Myth, on Victoria Day, at Kaslo, is on exhibition
in the window of Hunter &i_o. and
is a valuable trophy.
COMPETITION KEEN���
There were no less than six different tobacco drummers doing business
with W. A. Thurman during the last
24 hours, whicli proves that the disciples of the fragrant weed are not on
the decline.
MOVINO PICTURES���
The search light moving pictures
from Seattle and Victoria will be put
on the boards at the opera liouse this
evening. All the pictures are new
and have never been shown in the
city before.
REAL ESTATE GUANOES HANDa�����
.1. H. Nlokereon of this city has
purchased the bouse and lot formerly
owned by John Mill,,, on tho corner
of Ward and Carbpnate streets. The
deal was consummated by Annable

"WINDY" A VICTIM���
That well known erstwhile Nelson
barber "Windy" Dovore is suffering
with smallpox at Revelstoke. About a
month ago he undertook to nurse a
smallpox patient and as a consequence contracted the disease himself.
It is not in a very serious form.
WATERS STILL RISING-
A. McDonald & Co. have prepared .
schedule, which is on exhibition al
the city wharf, giving the dally records of tlie progress of the waters in
the lake towards a flood. During tin
time since 9 o'clock of the mornin.
of the 28th, to yesterday at 9 a. ��.,
the water has risen 18 inehos and <t
is only the matter of few days before
the lake boats will be taking on their
passengers at the platform of liver's
warehouse.
M'QILL STUDENTS  BACK���
The McGill students who bave been
touring the province during the last
few weeks "-turned to the city last
evening on their return from the
Ymir distiict where they spent one
day. Today they will visit the Athabasca and pel haps the Silver King
mine after whicli they will proceed
to the Fernie coal districts. After ���
brief stay in that section the car will
then return east, but the majority 0*
the students will remain in the mining di.tiicts for the balance of the
summer, where tbey will be engaged
in the practical work of the mine,
some of them have already secured
promisei of employments in the
mines they bave been visiting.
EXTENSIVE IMPROVEMENTS���
Now that the Nelson hotel has
been raised to the street level extensive and expensive improvements will
be made to the Nelson Cafe. The
kitchen will be moved farther back
and a sumptuously furnished priva.e
dining room to accommodate 1. or 30
people will be put in. Two ����tra
boxes will also be installed and all
will be richly carpeted and fitted up
in metropolitan style. Minors will
adorn the walls of the main eafe
which will also receive attention.
When the work is completed the Nelson cafe will have no superior, as far
as nxtures are concerned, in the province. A steam table, improved range
and other changes in the culinary
department will improve the service,
which   is excellent now.
DID NOT SHOW UP���
The only case up before the magii-
tiate yesterday was that of a charge
laid by an Italian against the bartender of the Kootenay for assault
and battery. As the plaintiff failed
to put in an nppeaurnc. in support
of his charge the case was dismissed
with costs.
