T-v-riT*i"ri a rp*p*j-v j   The  usual  pandemonium   that at-
JJiliT Jllii 1 JtjlJ 1 li -mis tim limit   Yankee   victory   in  a
cup     contest     followed.       Whistles,
sirens, bells, hand.*, and  oheers united
in a grand cnorus   of   jubilation   and
.1.  P.   Morgan's  steam yacht   Corsaii
added   to   the   din   by   firing an additional salute of 21 guns.      After the
Columbia   had hauled down her   nails
and set her victory llag   the excursion
boats ciovvded alongside to   cheer   tho
Yankee sflllorS and the  winning skip-
pcr.    Nor   did they forget Sir Thomas
Lipton or his gallant mow.      In   turn
the crowded   steHiners   ran   alougside
the Shamrock   and Erin and the   vanquished received almost   as   much   us
the victor.      And thus   with   felicitations all around,   the twentieth series
uf tlie races   for   the   old   eup   ended
with tlie best of feeling. While taking
his defeat gamely Sir Thomas    Lipton
mnde no attempt to conceal his honest
disappointment when ha talked about
the race tonight on the Erin.   "I   am
very much disappointed,'* he said, ''1
can't   hide   that   I thought within 15
minutes of tho lirst half we had   won.
I was sure as  my   life   that   we   had
won. Whon I looked around the situation had changed   and I had   lost.    It
was   a   hard  blow to be so near winning a;,d then to lose.      I should like
to have got oue race just   by   way   of
consolation.     It is a   very hard thing
to be beaten by a   breath,    by   a   few
beats ot the   pulse.     It   has   been   a
severo strain ou me.     I have   worked
so hard for many months now   aud   I
am glad it   is   over.      To   have   won
would have   betn a joy   greater than
today's  disappointment.     Columbia's
win   today   was   fair and square and
honorable.    Thero is   nothing to protest if I   wanted to protest,    ln fact 1
have   a   feeling   in my   heart that if
there   had been any error in judgment
at ull it would havo been in my favor.
If there had been   any   possibility of
choice in tho matter 1 believe the New
York Yaoht club would have given me
tho race.    Sometimes a man may have
tlie botlor  boat   but   oven   h:..viug   it
must have a wee bit of   luck to   win.
I am very grieved indeed, very  griov-
cd, and," he added, "I should like to
have won one race."
Hardly had the Erin's anchor's
touched bottom than a launch from
the Corsair came alongside bearing
the regatta committee of .he New
York Yacht elub. Sir Thomas met
them at the head of tho gangway, and
as he shook hands with them individually, he said, "Gentlemen,.it was a
fair beating. I want to say again that
you have treated me with the utmost
fairness and courtesy. You have met
every wish of mine and from my heart
1 thank yon.''
Commodore Lewis Cass Ledyard,
chairman nf tho Now York Yacht
Club regatta committee replied, "Sii
Thomas, we havo ncvor had a truer
sportsman to deal with." E. IX
Morgan, manager of tho Columbia
said, "I am very happy that wo won,
and glad the strain is over. Wc certainly had to make a splendid fight
for it. We had a splendid captain
and a splondid crow.' The Columbia
mainsail was unbent befoio she camo
to anchor and soon after she was
towed lu Coney Island.
INDIANS RETALIATE CRUELLY.
New York, Oct. 3. -With victory
flag.*-- floating from her towering mastheads and the ends of her spreaders in
honor of her concluding triumph ill
! the races of 11)01, the gallant sloop
Columbia returned to ber anchorage
tonight under the escort of the entire
excursion licet. She today completed
, her defence of the honored trophy in
another stirring rac: with Shamrock
11. over a leeward and windward
course of 30 miles, crossing the finish
line two seconds behind her antagon-
- ist but winning on the time allowance
ooncaded by the Lipton hoat by 41
seconds. For the second time she
has now succeeded in foiling the
atten.pt of Eng land to wrest from our
possession the cup that means the
yachting supremacy of the world.
Tbo plucky Sir Thomas Lipton uu
the bridge of the Erin led his guests
in hearty huzzas for thc successful
defender, "She is tho hotter boat,"
he said, "uud she deserves to be
cheered."
Tho series of races just closed ~wi 11
always bo memorable for the closest
race ever sailed for tho cup, and Sir
Thomas, although dcfeitcd, will go
homo with tho satisfaction of knowing that his golden yacht is the ablest
foreign boat that ever crossed the
.western ocean. During both soiies not
an untoward incident bus occurred,
and Sir Thomas will retuin to England by far more popular than all the
foreigners who have challenged for
the American trophy.
Today's raco cn paper was the
closest, of the series, but because of
the llukinoss of tho wind on the way
home as a contest of thc relative
merits of the yachts it is not to bo
compared with the magnificent, truly
run and fairly fought battles of Saturday and yesterday* The conditions of
tho raco at the start today wero very
similar to those of yesterday. The
wind was strong and from thc shore,
embroidering Iho sea with foam but
piling up no swell, ideal conditions
for tho challenger. The racers were
sent away before the wind each carrying a penalty for crossing tho line
after the handicap gun. No official
record is kept of the timo after that
gun is fired but the experts with stop
watches estimated Columbia's handicap at 15 seconds and Shamrock's at
So seconds. The sight ot the contestant yachts, Hoeing befoie the following wind, was picturesque bnt not
exciting. The big yachts, like gulls
with outstretched wings had every
inch of canvas spiead, all their light
sails including bulging Epinnukeis
and balloon jib topsails. Their crews
wero gathered aft to keep the head of
the boats up and therefore until the
outer mark was reached it waa
merely a question of holding on to ail
the oanvas and letting the wind do
the rest.
Notwithstanding   the   fact that the
Columbia   boat   Shamrock before   the
wind    last   Saturday   the   challenger
today gained slowly   but steadily   all
the way ont  and   rounded   li   seconds
before the defender,   having   actually
gained one minute and foul   seconds.
Iuimudiatelv after the   yachts  turned
their   noses   for   tho   bent home,  the
breeze moderated   and   turned   lluky.
The skippers split tanks,   each searching for  wind,    with   the   result   that
first one would get a lift and then tlie
other.     Ouo   time Columbia seomed a
mile ahead   when   a   sudden   slant of
wind alloned the   Shamrock   to point
nearer   the  mark   and   a   mile   from
home tho challenger   appeared   to   be
loading by fully   a   half   mile.     The
talent began to feel   nervons,   but   as
the yachts approached   the  finish, the
Yankee   skipper   by   some   miraclous
legerdemain shovod   his boat into   the
light air   like a phantom ship and !(>;;
yards   from home the two racers were
almost on even lei ins. It wax a prett)
sight aud one seldom witnessed   whon

With Heavy Loss.
Ouracoa,   Oct.    I. ���Thu   mysterious
feature of the Ouajira   campaign   today is the altitude of the   Guajira Indians.     When   the Venezuelans  first
entered tbo peninsula  they robbed the
Indians of their cittlo   and   generally
maltreated them.      The   Indians  arc
now   retaliating  cruelly,   mutilating
and murdering   many of tbo numerous
fugitives   who huve   been   straggling
since   tho defeat   ovor   the   waterless
burning   fiat peninsula in au effort to
reach their lines on the coast,
13 Oeneral Davila's first fight at Cure-
ccoa   was   an   absolute route.      Five
battalions     wore     engaged   and   the
Colombians are estimated   at the same
number. It is not Known that General
Echevira   was   killed   on   the  battle
Held.     After   Oeneral   Echevira   was
reported     killed,     General    Davilas,
Clodomiro,   Castillo   and Ermiio Castro, a brother of President Castro fled
the     field,    and   the   battalion   then
broke.    About BOO   wore killed on the
Venozeulan side,    including 30  minor
officers.

A CONSTABLE'S PRIVILEGES.
Decision in tbo County Court Case
Will Define His Responsibility.
At the conclusion of the Rohitaillo
vs. Mason case yesterday, aftor both
oounsels hud closed their arguments,
Judge Forin said, "I consider a very
strong case has been made out for the
plaintiff Robitaille, but I desire to
give a written judgment, aud look
into the case and review fully the
law on the question," He then
directed that a copy of tbe stenographer'a notes be made out and as
soon as he has perused this he will
deliver judgment. The case involves
many interesting points affecting the
duties of constables and private prosecutions. The arrest was made without a warrant and the plaintiff claims
while private parties were asserting
their rights, and not made to forward
the criuiiua,' law. The case from ulegal
stundpoint is one of the most important to ooiue befoie tho Ccnnty court
in Nelson. Rohitaillo claims the
return of his solicitor's fees at the
preliminary hearing, tho expense of
his* time attending trial aud when
under arrest, and damages to tho extent of _s0o to his leputation and for
his mental sufferings pending his
arrest and trial.
PROCURE U. S. PATENTS.
SEAMANSAIP OR MODEL?
London, Oot. 4.���There is a feeling
of supreme disapointment In London
over the failure of tho Shamrock to
win even a single race. Those who
denounced Sir Thomas Lipton's ambition,asserting that he was using his
yacht to advance his business interests, now realize that his sportsmanlike efforts deserved a better
result. The question is much debated
Whether the defeat of the Shamrock
was duo to the superiority of American seaniaiiship or the bettor constructive ability of the American people.
With a view to settling the question,
the Dailj Expiess has cabled Commodore Morgan and Sir Thomas Lipton
suggesting they should ariange a race
with the Columbia's crew on boaid the
Shamiock II. and tho crew of the
challenge on boad the defender.

patents were issued of which four
came to Canadians.
The R. C. inventors this week are
John Paterson, Nelson, hydraulic air

utilized to induce and cany air with
it during its fall down a pipe into a
specially designed resorvoir which
separates the air then under tho press*
uro of tbe head of water. This system
has boon very ninch in vogue during
recent years, and seems specially
adapted for us in our province, where
mountain streams are so frequently
available adjacent to mining centres.
tl. A. Roedde, bookbinder, Vancouver, has this week received the United
States allowance on bis application
for a patent on a temporary binder, for
nso on magazines or similar paper
hound books. This device is especially designed for the protection of
such books, and is likely to obtain
very general adoption.
The magazine is locked in the
binder iii such a manner that while
every freedom is accorded for reading,
tho book cannot Uo moved from the
binder except by the person provided
with tlio key too unlock the securing

(SPECIAL, TO THB MlNKR.)
Victoria, Oct. 4.���The uir here yesterday ami today bus been tiiick with
rumors regarding the political situation, It being rumored last night that.
the premier had resigned and the
governor had sent for lion. Fred
Peters. Up to noon today, however,
nothing of special interest had transpired [regarding Mr. Dunsmuir
although it was learned for a fact
that J. 0. Rrown's resignation had
been iu the hands of the premier for
some days. _ ��� That tlie premier is undecided what to do is evident from
the fact that though the Gaz.etto thin
morning announces that Hon. J. D.
Prentice will act as Provincial secretary and ininiater of education it does
not contain a line regarding Mr.
lirown's resignation. Your correspondent learned at noon of Mr.
Brown's action and when the news
was communicated to n number of
prominent politicians the concensus
of opinion was that it presaged the
witlrdrawal of the premier. It is
known definitely that the premiei
now sees his mistake aod would do
anything to recall his action in
allowing Joseph Martin to dictate his
course but it is too late.
A prominent Island representative
who has been regarded as one of the
personal as well as political supporters of Mr. Dunsmuir suid this morning: "Dunsmuir has been a rank,
failure as a piemier and the worst of
it is he does not see it." There is a
well defined understanding that
Eberts and MoBride are joining hands
and that the next combiuation in case
Dunsmuir resigns or even if he does
not, will number them among the
prominent leaders. The city is full
of politicians and members and tbis
week will likely see Boine move made

months to pump it out. At Extension
they smothered the fire by closing all
the air shafts and tunnels.

Should the government put a oandi*
dute in tlie fit Id to fill the vacancy ill
Victoria, it would bo with the absolute certainty of defeat. In the event
of a resignation I would expect the
formation of a coaiation government.
Such a government," said Mr. Curtis,
"I strongly condemn, The only object
of such a one, should be for a special
purpose, as was the case at the passing of the Confederation act. In the
present instance such a government
should only deal with the passing of
u Redistribution act, and possibly one

a government owned roud for the construction of a competitive line. The
construction may be expected to commence wilhin three or four months,

Grand Forks, Oct. 4.-J. H. Kennedy, chief engineer of tho V. V. &
B. railway has left here for the
Similkameen for the purpose of inspecting thc route now being surveyed
by his assistants.
The delay of the Provincial government in g anting the right ol* way
for the proposed branch from here to

tbo O. P. R. has not completed the
selection of its lands secured under
tho Columbia & Western land grunt.
Tbo excuse is of tho flimsiest character
as the lands between heie and l'hoenix
are mostly situated ut a high elevation
und are valueless for timber purposes;
in any event tho minerals they may
contain do not belong to the railway
company. On the plea nf protecting
the interests of the C. ���'. R., tho Victoria government is wilfully delaying

The   three races   for   tho   America

The second race, it is claimed, was

before  it.     The   Columbia   won   the
second race by three  minutes  and   as

In the third raco, run yesterday,
the breeze varied from twelve to
eighteen knotB and occasionally it
wns of considerably less in force. The
Columbia won the third race by 41)
.seconds.
Considering that the distance sailed
in each race was 30 miles, the small
time hy which the Columbia wou iu
_ acb of the three races was not largo
and shows that Bhc is only a little
more speedy than the Columbia.
It is within the range of probabilities that the Shamrock was not
handled ns well us the Columbia, and
a fair test of this question would be
for tho two ynchts to change crews
and sail tho three races over thu same
course. If, then, the Shamrock outsailed the Columbia it would demonstrate that it was the erew and not
the vessel thnt won the series of races
which was concluded yesterday. Ou
the othor hand, if the Columbia won
it would reveal that it waa the boat
and no�� the crew which was victorious. Snch a trial, while it would
have no bearing upon tho cup, would
at least have the effect of fully satisfying the Hritish und American
pcoj.los us to the respective merits of
the two ves;els, although lhat question is already settled in the minds of
a good many.
Sir Thomas Lipton has made n gallant attempt to lift the cup and if In*

CHANCE FOU CAPITAL.
Tlie miners of the Slocan have a
very valuable asset in the dry ore
I ledges and as thoy understand fully
raoe revealed their value they are opening np as
little fa**ter many 0f them as their means will
allow. They recognize while lead is
low that the dry oro will yield more
profit than the heavier wet silver-lead
ores. The dry ore belt is worthy of
the attention of the capitalist as there
is good profit in mining for this
class of ore and the mines
of tlie Slocan are not expensive to
operate. Tlie Slocun Drill of October
1th has the following concerning the
dry ore belt around Slocan City:
"Under general conditions it requires
three tons of dry ore to flui one of
wet. Snch being the case and the
Slocan City division possessing the
leading dry ore deposits of the prov
inee, there is a ready market for every
pound of mineral produced in the
camp, and demand, in fact, being far
greater than the visible supply. As a
result of smelter competition, freight
nnd treatment charges havo beon
greutly reduced, tho reductions mnde
amounting to a fun profit orr ordinary
mining. The attention of investors is
partiiularly dru n to this fact. If
you don't Oelievi- it, come and see fo
yourself."
EDITORIAL NOTES.
AN EMINENT EXPERT.
Some high clnss experts hnve been
culled into the Kootenays ou different
occasions to puss upon the merits of
mining properties, the most efficient
wiy of operating tbum and the cheapest mothod for reducing the ore. Such
eminent engineers as Clarence Kin��
Henry Bratnober, Dl, Raymond,
Henry Janin, Mr, Eeroborn, Bernard
Macdonald und others come high but
it Is ofton necessary to imvu them.
One of  the  largest gathering of men
eminent in tho mining husinesi was
summoned to appear in tho suit of tbe
Centre Star vs. the Iron Mask, n suit
involving a question of extra lutein!

Mr. J. L Parker, superintendent of
tlio Hrooklyn and Stemwinder mines,
in the l'hoenix camp is in tne city ou
a business visit. Mr. Parker reports
tbat l'hoenix is prospering and the
mines are doing well. The shipments
from the Mother Lode and tho B. C,
continue, a promising strike lias been
mado on tho Winnipeg and lhe lioundary, be says, is one of the most important mining sections of Southern
British Columbia. Mr. Parker said :
"I visited tho LeRoi today. (Friday)
forenoon nnd found that the machinery
at tbat famous mine is once again in
operation and that ore is being
hoisted from tbe lower levels. I
recognised among the workers several
old mi hits who have returned to
work   and   it   is   anticipated   by tbe
''management that a number of others
will return shortly. Once the mines
resume full swing again it will earn a
groat deal for Ilossland, which lias
certainly   boon   very   dull   since   the
'.strike The interest manifested yesterday in the bulletins of the closing
yacht race caused quite an excitement
.at noon, but, generally speaking tho
streets of Rosslaud are like those
desciibed in (loldsinith's 'Deserted
Village.' The miners ut present
.working are living   at,   the   boarding
* houses uu Red Mountain, but once the
member*' of the union decide to return
to work tbt town will resume its old
air of life and bustle.''
RICH OOLD OHIO IN tiARDEAO.
Recent   development on   the Mountain Hoy group of claims on tho south
, sido   of Pool   crock   has   resulted   in
somo discoveries   of   very   rich   free-
' milling gold ore.      The group is situ-
atcd   iu tbo same belt ns tho Eva   and
Oyster groups   in the Lardeau district
and   belongs   lo   J.    McOoe   and   VV.
Geiard.    The  property   was located
nearly four   years   ago   us   a  galena
pioposition and  assessment work  has
been done   eaoh year.    The ledge was
a largo ono   but tho   flro was of  such
��� low grade that little hope   was entertained of the proporty   proving   to   be
of any great value.     'The   recent (lis-
: covenes on lhe Eva and other  adjoin-
; lug properties having shown   that the
claims comprised   in the   group   were
i In tbo free gold district the ledge was
> thoroughly    prospected   and   stripped
[ for   a   considerable   distance.     Tins
J resulted in n shoot   of  extremely rich
;: gold oro being found ill the ledge that
[had     before   beon    worked   only   foi
silver.      Tbo   owners   are    naturally
muoh elated ovei the discovery.���Ler-

from
discount the wholesale men g
fraying thoy have  considerable udvau
tag over lhe retail men.  Tbe retailers |
hold that this is thoir   legitimate field
and the others should keep out of   it.
Of   late   they oomplain that the  jobbers   have   pushed   this   small   ordor
business stronger than   over and   will
even   break   packages.       The   Retail
Grocers' Association   is   preparing   ,i ]
statement   of their case winch will be'
given to the public -shortly.
On the other hand the wholesale
men say that if they did uot fill the
orders from tho /nines the companies
would buy iu tlio East then selves and
that muoh trade would be lost to the
city. They have strong competition
from tlio coast cities und if Nelson is
to maintain its prestige ns a wholesale centre they must get special terms
from tho railways as their coast competitors do.

TIIK RICH LARDEAU.
R. H. .Inmesor,, of Victoria, on returning homo from the Lardeau said
it wns undoutodly ono of tbe richot
mining fields in this province of mineral wealth. The first prospecting
was done for silver-lead, and for a
long time the miners worked ou the
quartz ledgos ignorant of tho fact thnt
the bright particles of mineral with
which the rock was impregnated wan
gold, not copper or Iron pyiites, as
tbey supposed. One lino day,however,
somo prospectors showed somo samples
of rock to an expert and he told* thorn
without hesitation that they had
struck rich gold quartz. In consequence the Lost Cup, Goldfinch, Independence, Oyster, Eva and other
claims wore staked on an immense
quartz ledge on Fish creok, one hundred feet wide on the Goldfinch and
easily traceabie for four or five
miles. The ledge is mineralized for
its whole width nnd so rich that
pieces of rock taken at randon from
the dump gWo good showings of gold
when crushed nnd pannod.
ANOTHER TOWNSITE.
Artioies of incorporation of the new
townsite of Marysville, in East Knot-
ena,whore the Sullivan mine proposes
installing its smelter, were filed at
Spokano on Thursday. The capital
stock is !l'!,OU0 shares of the par va'ue
of .1 oaoh. Tho company owns about
1,000 aoras aud 160 acres have been set
aside for the townsite and smelter,
The contract for thu construction of
the smelter has been let to Early
lirothers.of Northport. A sawmill has
boen purchased and will soon be put
in operation at the townsite.

of lire pot, over fire, thus consuming all the gases and products of combustion. It can be operated in connection with the front draft door, or
independently, by a screw register in the rear of base, insuring complete
control of the stcve with nearly perfect combustion.
The large Hot Air Circulating Flue on the back takes (he cold air from
the floor antl ejects it intensely heated, through the top adr'ing greatly
to the heating capacity. -,,. j,
Where the stove is operated according to directions we guarantee it to
consume all the ga.-, contained in soft coal, thus deriving   the  benefit
all the heat in the fuel consumed, causing a truly remarkable  savin
fuel over any other stove on the market.    The stove will hold  fire
24 to 48 hours without attention.
