Eleventh  Year
31ose Race Yesterday ln Trial
Series Between Constitution and Columbia.
Joats Evenly Matched but Experts Pick New One as
the Swifter.
Laichiuont,   N.   Y.,   Aug. 17.���Today's race between   Constitution   and
Columbia   was   only   a matter of sec-
|nds.    For   the   fourteenth   time   the
urn yachts finished a contest and   for
|e eighth time Constitution came out
winner.   Today    the   margin   was
mall for   she beat Columbia only   58
brands,   oorrected   time.    In   elapsed
lime she won by two minutes, 18   sec-
puds.    The race was sailed under conditions that best suited Constitution, a
steady eight knot breeze and a smooth
lea.   It  waa   finished in three  hours
Ind three  minutes,   which   was  fast
lime considering   the   wind   and   tho
���act that 12 miles of the course  called
lor windward work, although  it  was
pot a dead beat.    Constitution   gained
pn her rival on every   leg,   doing best
In reaching.    Today's   contest   was a
lair   test of   speed   as the   boats   got
Ihe wind   throughout   and   there was
little to choose   in   the   handling.    It
represents   about   what the new Constitution oan do   against the older Columbia   under   the   conditions which
prevailed and, while many yachtsmen
vho have followed  the boats are disappointed that the difference  between
���hem was not greater, quite   as many
norc   are   satisfied that   Constitution
bore the trying out very well,   nnd   is
|utilciontly superior to warrant her be-
~g selected as the cup defender.
The course sailed today was a beam
|ace of six miles, a beat of   six   miles
vitb   a  long   and   short   leg,   and a
broad   reach   of   three   miles,    twice
around.   The    start   was one of   tho
flosest   ever   made by (the two  yaohts
IB they got off only two seconds apart.
I'll,    reach   down   to   the first   mark
vas   made in quick   time and it  was
only a   fast   steam yacht   that  conld
keep up the pace.   Constitution   covered the six   miles in 43 seconds  less
than Columbia. After rounding, Constitution  made a short tack  in  shore
and came   about on the  weather how
of   Columbia   just   as   tho  old    boat
puffed around the mark.
Roth   boats now   stood down   on   a
llong starboard   tack   towards  the cn-
Itrance of  Hampstead Bay.   Columbia
���was seen   to   be   doing   better  close
lhauled   and when  half way down the
Jnext   mark   went clean  through Con*
Istitntion's   lee,   romping   olf with   a
��� good   head   full.    Constitution,   how-
lever, pointed   well   up   and   kept her
IwindwBrd position.    Coming out   into
I the   llay   the   new   boat   caught   the
I fresh wind first and added   materially
1 to her lead.    Both boats weie able   to
I make the second mark  with   one long
I and   short leg.    Constitution   rounded
J the second mark one minute, nine seo-
londs   ahead of Columbia.    The   wind
I was now about the best of the day and
|wm  blowing   well   up to ten   knots,
lloth   boats   came   over to  tho  home
mark off Larohmont on a broad icach
with   big   jib   topsails   and    balloon
i staysails.   One this Bhort leg of  three
(miles  Constitution   added only a second to  hor lend.   After rounding the
buoy   and   starting   over   the course,
the second time.Constltution's men hnd
trouble   in   iheeting   home   the   big
reaching   sail   and the sail was shaking in the wind  for  over   a   minute.
The   wind   still   held     and   the   two
boats ran to the first mark, a six mile
leg, in less than half  nn  hour.   They
wore timed   as follows at   the   murk :
Constitution, 3.05 :,'iri;Columbin, 3.00:55
Constitution had addod   forty   seconds
more to hor lead.
Both wout abont on the port tack
immediately alter rounding and stood
down the Long inland shore for a
long broad reach. Constitution having a good load, got from under the
Ueadlanda and into the open bay nnd
was first to get thc increasing
breeze. They tacked around the mark
anil stood for the finish line as follows: Constitution, 3.50:00; Colum-'
bla, 3.52:10. In this leg Constitution had gained 20 seconds more.
Hoth broke ont balloon jibsails and
spinnakers for the run in, tho wind
having shifted a bit into the south   at
the same time, oect>ming lighter. The
finlBh was as follows: Constitution,
4.08;23; Columbia, 4.10:43.
In the race on Friday Constitution
drifted aoross the finish line a winner over Columbia by 31 minutes and
23 seconds. This difference in time,
howev.er, does not represent the difference iu Bpeed between the two
yachts,for a large pait of the big margin was entirely due to a Huke in thc
light airs, a breeze irom a small thunder storm carrying Constitution ont
into the sound (there the wind was
good, while Columbia was practically
becalmed. This Bettled the race, for
thereafter Columbia was out of It. On
every leg the new boat gained and
maintained a reputation as a wonderfully fast yacht in soft airs.
But Columbia,with her perlect sails,
was also going fast and in the ' first
15 miles the new boat only made up 20
seconds over her time allowance.
The most noteworthy spectator of the
race was Captain Sycamore of Shamrock II. It was his first view of the
American boats aud be got a valuable
Hue of the light weather qualities of
his rival. The race waB beid under
the auspices of the Larchmont Yacht

Rev. M. C. Miller, of Minneapolis,
managing director of the Mountain
Lion Co., returned from the American group on Tuesday evening and
left yesterday morning for his north
fork propel ties, says the Lardean
Eagle. Mr. Miller gave the Eagle to
understand that his company had
purchased the American, at a five figure price, the purchase to be a cash
deal, extending over a series of pay
ments. Hugh Brown is now stripping
the lead and preparing for extensive
development which Mr. Miller hopes
to continue all winter. The government and Mr. Miller combined will
build a new trail from Trout Lake to
this property, there being some 0450
of a government grant available for
tbat purpose. Mr. Miller showed the
Eagle a fine specimen of American
ore which he took out on Tuesday.
Messrs. Abrahambaon brothers and
Tom Taylor, M. L. A., were the owners of tbe   American.
Sheriff Tuok returned from New
Denver yesterday where he seized the
Christina claim on Cody creek in connection with the suit of Botsford Sc
MacQuillan of Vancouver. Some time

claim, belonging to tbe firm above
mentioned, and in the lawsuit tbat
followed he was defeated, and his
own claim bas now been seized to
satisfy tbe costs of the suit.
Joe Clubb came in from tbe head of
Midge creek where he haB been developing the Congar and Manila claims,
silver-lead properties. He and his
partners have been running a tunnel
to crosscut tbe ledge andj are now in

Victoria, B. C, Aug. 17.���Archie
MoNanghton, manager of Y. M. C. A.
lnnrot.se team of Vancouver, is in tbo
city today and with Harry Helmcken
waited on Governor Sir Henri Joli and
deposited with him, as one of the trustees of tbe Minto Lacrosse Cup,a challenge to play the winners of the senior series in the east for possession of
the cup. Mr. McNaughton for his
club also agreed to come to Viotoria
and play, the local olub to give 25 per
cent of the gate receipts to the memorial to Dr. Beers, "the Father of Lacrosse," il being understood that the
Victoria team is to go to Vancouver

English Press Discusses the
Work of Their Parliament.
Berlin, Ang. 17.���Since the funeral
of the Dowager Empress Frederick
this has been Field Marshall Count
Von Waldersee's week. Immediately
after the interrment of the remains a
chorus of criticism of Von Waldersee
broke forth in the press, owing to his
speech at Hanover. Papers of the
most diffeient sides are wearying of
Von Waldersee's talkativeness, which
is regarded as not only in bad taste
in the allusion to other nations,
whose "names paled in China" but
as magnifying the Chinese campaign
far beyond its actual importance. It
is a fact that many papers are discussing which nation Von' Waldersee
meant as the one whose name paied.
They agree that it could only have
been Great Britain, and, indeed, tbe
reference is regarded as being so direct as to be impolitic. The Anglo-
phobe papers, however, rejoice that
Von Waldersee expressed himself so
frankly. Even these papers advise
him to speak briefly or not at all. One
of the most interesting inferences
drawn from Waldersee's t>peeches is
that he hopes to become Count Von
Buelow's successor as chancellor. This
is widely believed, but anyone who
saw how bent and weary Von Waldersee looked in the funeral procession
cannot credit the stoj-y. One of the
sharpest criticisms of Von Waldersee
Is from the Cologne Volka Zeitung,
a leading Centrist oigan, which compares him to Baron Von Mickle, the
former minister, and refers to him as
"playing the role of a secret anti-
chancellor." The papers ask whether
Von Buelow regards it in Germany's
Interest tbat Von Waldersee should
make such speeches, adding: "If
tnings go on in this manner it will
be impossible to maintain Germany's
policy at all. If a zigsag occurs it
is bad enough in internal politics,
much more must many cooks spoil
the broth iu diplomatic affairs."
London, Aug. 17.���The proroguing
of Parliament today is the occasion of
much doleful comment; finance was
the only big thing dealt with during
tbe session. Even The Times and
Standard point out the dooline of the
authority of the ministers in the
House of Commons. They describe
Sir Michael Hicks-Beach, chancellor
of the exchequer, as a politician absolutely ignorant of finance and who
knows as little about the money market as any other country gentleman.
The paper contrasts the effect of the
fabulous sums awarded In the United
StBtes by France in 1870 with the fall
In consols, resulting from tbe methods of Sii Michael Hicks-Beach, and
attributes it to the government's financing. It Bays there is a mistaken
belief abroad that the resources of
the country bave heen immensely exaggerated and that Great Britain is
not so rich as imagined, and claims
that the belief in the almost inexhaus-
tive resouroes of Great Britain bas
boen heretofore one of the great guarantees of peace.
Manila. Aug. 17.���A company of
tho 20th infantry had an engagement
with insurgents yesterday in Cnmele-
nes province. The troops killed Ze-
baBtean Angets, brother of General
Angets, and 44 privates and captured
a major, two captains aud nine privates. Another detachment captured
the magazine ('aimlies at Lumbangand
nlso seized a large quantity of supplies.
Joliet, 111., Aug. 17.���It Is expected that laok of rods at the American
Steel and Wire mills, will force them
to shut down Monday or Tuesday,
thus Increasing the number of men to
6,000, nearly half of them involuntary.
The rods are finished by the Illinois
Steel Company. Theie were no signs
of violence today though the streets
were full of idle meu.
Revolution Sized up From the
Standpoint of That Republic.
Blame Laid at the Door of
Colombia's Conservative
New York, ang. 17.���The following
cable message has been received by
the Associated Press from Torres Cardenas, general secretary of President
Castro, of Venezuela, in reply to a
dispatch addressed to tbe president ask
ing bim for a statement of the Venezuela-Columbia situation:
9Caracas, Venezuela.���In the name
of his excellency Genoral Castro,
1 reply to your cablegram in the following terms: Tbe Government of
Venezuela, presided over by General
Castro, is justified in all its works
and acts It is essentially liberal in
its practices.
''It is its opinion that the Conservatives of Colombia, probably led by
ruinous and wicked passions, have
decided to assist in the revolutionary
movements against Venezuelan ' and
her Government. All of this has been
actually proven by tbe official publications issued by the Cabinet in Bogota. They date from the first of
April. This view has not been denied
either by the Conservative Government of Colombia or by her very extraordinary nnd minister plenipotentiary in this capital.
"While the Government of Venezuela was surprised by the first and
second invasions of her frontier by
(10,000 and 20,000 men respectively,
the invaders were victoriously expelled by the Government and tbe people
of Venezuela. Sines said events 10,-
000 men have been massed on the frontier for tbe defense and integrity of
Venezuela and its national honor.
These are quite apart from her active
service troops on other parts of tbe
frontier, aa well as national troops
scattered over the Republic and tbe reserve. Venezuela has not accepted tbe
invasion as an international attack by
the people of Colombia against the
people of Venezuela but knowing its
real source, recognizes in it tbe work
of tbe Conservative Government of
Colombia against the majesty of tbe
nation of Venezuela. (Sgd,), Torres
Cardenas, general secretary."
A London Man Tells How it Can Best
Be Marketed.
Vancouver, B.C.,Aug. 17.���M>. Severn, a member of tbe London, Eng-
Ind, committee of the Fraser River
dinner's Association.is iu the city. In
an interview Mr. Severn said tbat the
firm be represented placed large quantity of Fraser River fish on the English market and be was interested it
the British Columbia salmon fishing
not only for this reason but oecause
he wus a member of an association in
England that bandied nearly all the
product of the Fraser River canning
industry. This association consisted of
six firms, there were a few outsldsre
but they did not cut any great figure.
In answer to a series of questions,
Mr. Severn said that under tbe circumstances be considered tbe price
paid by the canners to the fishermen
too high. On tbe Sonnd they had ��,-
000 cases up and would probably pack
million. The situation was tne
same on the Fraser. On the Sound
these fish cost two, three and four
cents each; on the Fraser 18X cents
for a quarter of the pack and 10 for
the balance. It is the custom of the
Puget Sound people to dump their
surplus stock In England. Now that
thc combine had been forced this moie
likely than ever. This surplus slock
is likely to be large this season. Besides this England gets a quarter of
a million cases from Alaska. If the
Fraser River threw their whole pack
on the English market and the I'uget
Sound people forced their whole surplus stock on'the same place it will
be bad for the B. C. canners. If, on
the contrary, the Fraser River Trust
Bends England three quarters of their
pack, and store a quarter of it in
their canneries, and the Puget Sound
people refrain from throwing everything the; bave left over from domes
tic consumption into England, the
correspondents in England may get
fair prices and the canners may come
out all right. To save the market
this season, however, the pack on the
Fraser must be bandied very carefully. The quarter of a pack held over
would be handled at better prices
next year. Mi. Severn speaking of
the Fraser River committee in London
said that the syndicate had savad the
market from partial collapse in 1807
aud now that a trust had been formed
here matters were   much simplified.
San Francisco, Aug. 17.���In accordance with instruction received from
the attorney-general,United States Attorney Woodworth has taken the deposition of George L. Seybolt in the
case of tbe United States against
Charles F. W. Neely, the postal official accused of shortage in accounts
while in Havana. Seybolt was; formerly a postorfice inspector andj was
detailed to investigate the management of the| Cuban system. His deposition contains the following information regarding the investigation
made on April 23, 1901.
A small excess was found in tho
money order fund and when Neely's
attention was oalled to this matter
he stated that he was in some doubt
as to the exactness of his accoants and
that the bad put in some money so
that there should not he nny shortage. Neely had figures showing his
balances, but who furnished him with
information Seybolt could not say.
The balances in Neely's possession,
the witness stated, were similar to
the ones furnished as part of thc
equipment for the investigation from
the auditor's office, whicli led bim to
believe that Neely was prepared for
the investigation. The latter had no
postal funds on hand. He had stamps
and stamped paper together with a
certificate of deposit from the treasurer of the island in an amount sufficient to meet all balances furnished by
the auditor.
London, Aug. t7.���The Sun says
today that it knows that tbe concentration of General Botha's forces at
Uondweni.in the borders of Zululand,
as announced iu a despatch does not
forshadow a fight with Botha, but his
surrender, in pursuance with an understanding reached between General
Botba and Lord Kitchener. Tbe Sun
adds that tbe Government is sc satisfied tbat the war is virtually over, that
Lord Milner, now on his way back to
South Africa, has in his pocket the
draft of a oomplete constitution and
plans for tbe future government of the
annexed territories.

The splendid showing of ore that
has been on exhibition in tbe window
ql the Canada Drug Sc Book Co., bas
been favorably criticized by mining
men during the last week. The ore is

always interesting and the lot on exhibition is said by many to be some
of the best tbey have seen.
Tbe hundreds of people who gathered on Baker streot last night and
stood for an Hour and a balf listening

The Iiaily Province of Vancouver
favors erection and maintenance by the
Povincial Government of a smelter
and lead refinery and in support of its
position it says:
'���One crying need in this Province
has been a lack of smelting facilities
and an ntter absence of a reBnery, and
it is felt in many quarters that the
time has arrived for the establisb-
men to a provincial smelter and reBnery which could treat ores at a nominal profit. The undertaking is by no
means an enormous one. A smelter
and refinery could be established for
about $7~o,0uo, this at 3% per cent,
would cost the province say 25,000 a
yeai. The charge for smelting and
refiDing should be the actual cost plus
some small charge���say 50 cents���per
ton, to cover interest and provide a
sinking fund for the retirement of tbe
.750,000 bonds. The effect that the
establishment of such an institution
would have would bo most marked.
As soon as it bo "am. known by mining men that they could get their ores
treated on a small margin over cost,
the number of prospectors to start out
would be increased by thousands. Tbe
returns from mining licenses wonld
increase and those for registering
claims would follow suit. It is not becoming too sanguine to figure tbat the
concern would bo on an actual paying basis inside of a year, Tlie possibility of sending in 5 or 10 ton lotB of
ore would appeal to prospectors as
nothing else would, and it, and it is
safe to say that the coast alone conld
soon furnish enough ore to keep a 001-
ton smelter and refinery running the
year round. Tlie Province llrmly believes that this is a matter worthy of
the closest examination by the l'rovin
oial authorities."
With due deference to the opinion of

Province embark in tho smelting and
refining business. _o far as the smelting is '.concerned there are corporations at Nelson and Trail engaged in
tbe business of reducing silver-lead
Ores and there is a silver-load smelter
lying idle nt Pilot Hay. It wonld
scarcely be fair for the Province to enter into competition with those who
have invested so much capital in tho
business. They havo vested rights
which the Province must respect.

that load is lower at 112 2s. Od

The inexorable law of supply and

the price of lead. The supply is in
excess of the demand and tho price of
thc metal is low. Naturally, under
the existing conditions of low price.
the production will decrease and lifter

Mr. T. P. O'Connor, in the London Daily Mail, notes the ordinary
habit of,Englishmen of ascribing the
wave of pessimism,self-doubt and self-
contempt wbieh is passing over the
bouse of commons to its leader, Ar-
thur Ralfour. He says that Mr. Balfour always plays into the hands of
his critics, partly because of the defects of his temperament, and partly
because of the curious limitations of
his mind. Be is naturally indolent,
and has been brought up in an atmosphere of indolence and in wealthy surroundings, which have taught bim
nothing of the realities and rigors  of
Be has a even and fine mind, bnt it

not of an Englishman of business.
Hut for the gratification afforded by
the possession of power, the flattery of
men snd women, and the sense of sue-
coss, he would car:, but very little for

not an enthusiastic partisan, that he
knows but little about some practical things a man in bis position
should know. His interests are more
in those eternal problems about which
ho has writton than in the transient
problems of the honse of commons.
His spirit dwells afar, and is alone
and remote. He shows a constant
lack of memory, and is always making blunders. In his aloofness from
common things, he is in striking contrast with Chamberlain, "to whom
the winuing of n ward election in

entrances into tho lmuse, his frequent

Mr. Gladstone.
Alluding to Mr. Balfour's treatment
of his colleagues in the house of commons, Sir William Ilarcourt sny.-.

it is Balfour's slackness and neglect

Considerable interest is being
manifetsed in the re-appearunce of
Encke's comet, which astronomers
say is about due. This comet is regarded as the most singular In the
solar system and its eratic movements
are accounted for on the theory that
there is a resisting medium in interstellar space. Professor Piekering,
of Harvard,says: "We have great interest in Encke's comet because the
time of Its arrival is not constant,
since it has been discovered it has
been quickening its speed and shortening its period at the rate of about
two hours and a half in each revolution. There is no ordinary way to account for this aotion. It tends to
prove that it is passing through a
resisting medium, which instead of
causing the comet to lessen the
speed of its motion, quickens it."
This seems strange as it has always
been though that a resisting medium
would tend to lessen rather than to
increase the speed of moving bodies.

Passing by other internal evidences
nhicn the Book yields, what shall we
say of Its oft-repeated self-testimony?
I opeu the Bihle and one of the things
which catches my eye on its first page
is the repetition of the words, "And
God said." As I read its books successively the same claim is put forward in varying forms of speech down
to the olosing invitation uf tho Apo-
calypa when "the Spirit of tho bride
say, Come/1
Indeed its one olaim to oi-tlen.e is
that (iod throughout its pages is speaking His messages of truth and love to
the world. Now it is absurd for me to
say that I believe the Bible but deny
its Divine origin. How can I accept
as reliable history a work whose fundamental declaration is a glaring falsehood and whose supreme puiposo, revealed |n the warp and woof of its
entire structure, is to perpetrate a
fraud? Can truth stand upon the
foundation of a lie? Can there be
harmony with the keynote false?
Moses wrote true history and gave to
Israel and to mankind a perfect moral
code, and vet lied most villainously
to his people ;or forty years I David
with raptured soul heard heavenly
music!, tuned his harp to the seraphic
symphonies and struck chords which
have vibrated for three thousand
yours, while his towering genius riv-
ottod the angelic harmonios to earth
in the immortal minstrelsy of tbe
Hebrew palter; but he too was a liar!
The prophets preached morality and
spoke truth of the future, bnt imposed fraud upon a credulous and simple-minded people! And the Man of
Nazareth, whose message was peace
and good will to a troubled world,
whose charactor was perfect and whose
life spotless, was an impostor and a
charlatan! Could there be anything
more contradictory or incredible
offered for my acceptance? Consistency aud common sense alike demand
that I should credit tbe main testi
mouy of a witnesB whose evidence on
all other pointB proves reliable.
If time and space admitted mention
might bo made of the wondrous vitality of the Bible, by which it has been
able to outride the storms of criticism
aud secure for itself a place in the esteem of the woild unequalled by any
production of human genius. Nor
can any candid thinkerjignoro the significant fact that material, intellectual,
and moral advancement every where
exist In a direct ratio to the measure
of acceptance which this Book has
obtained. But whilo the cumulative
force of such considerations is very
great, the supreme test of all truth
must ever be experience. To bring
within the radiiiB of my personal consciousness Is vastly more convincing
than all inductive reasoning in the
universe. And here tho old book is
equal to every domain.. It is emphatic in deolaring that "All bave
tinned" and experience testifies that
there is "none good, "no not one. The
fruits of sin and the fruits of righteousness are depicted with a faithfulness which men are just now learning
and the soundness of its way of life is
ever open to personal proof. It may
seem easy to pick llavv.s in tho plan of
salvation, but while it continues to
meet the conscious neea of thousands
who have put it to tho test, no argument oan overthrow it. In the last
analysis, therefore, I acc��pt the Bible
because it meets my soul's aspirations
and presents truths capable of verification in conscious life.

Borne bright and original jokoa with
which to amuse the audience. It would
therefore, seem tbat the Sells Sc Cray

Tbe New York Theatre Company
oomes to the opera house for four
nights commencing Wednesday, August 31, strongly recommended by the
press, from New York to Sau Francisco. The company has a big repertoire of the most popular plays and
presents them in a finished style.
The comnany has been playing to
big business at Rat Portage, Fort
William and Port Arthur. That the
performances Were highly satisfactory
is evident from the following, whioh
is from the Rat Portage News:
"Ono of tho biggest crowds evei Been
in the Hilliard Oprea House greeted
the New York Theatre Company last
night, and judging by the thundering
applause accorded the performers,
the vast audience were not disappointed in their high expectations of a rare
treat. Miss Agnes Anderson, in
the role of orphan gir'., wife, gradually developing into a strong-minded
woman, filled her part almost to perfection. Miss Pessie Seabright played the part of foster aunt true to life,
while Miss Helen D'Este filled her
difficult role extraordinary ly well.
Miss Aggie Marion did ample justioe
to ber part ns the boy artist. W. L.
Harve and Oscar Ring also acted
very realisticly, Mr. J. G. Stuttz is
certainly as good a comedian as Sir
Henry Irving is a tragedian. To
hear the good honest ring of his voice
is alone well worth tne price of ad
mission, For purity and grandeur
"Was She to Blame?" has not an
equal. The comedy is bright and
sparkling, which causes the most sober mindetd and long faces to bu rst
into mirthful   laughter."
The R. M. R. band will play at
Lake Park this evening.
The public and high schools will
reopen tomorrow morning.
Several parties in Nulson who undertook mushroom culture this summer have met with great success, the
succulent fungi growing very well.
