near losing his life yesterday. He
accidently locked himself in the big
refrigerator in the cellar of his hotel.
The refrigerator was a new one, holding nearly a ton of ice, and he went
inside to see if the door fitted tightly.
Thoughtlessly! he pulled the door
closed after hiin and the spring lock
fastened it. He kicked on the dooi
for a longjtirae.but no one heard him.
Finally he got an oak strip from the
front of the ice box and pounded tbe
door. He felt himself becoming weaker, but hi renewed his efforts and finally forced open the door, winch is
fourteen inches thick. He fell in a
*aiut and did not recover for several
hours. He was in the refrigerator
about twenty mhiiites.

no satisfactory explanation of his action and could only say that  someone

How the Latter Found Out
That the Former Was
Honest.
Salmon are Running Freely
but Strike Is Far From
Settlement.
(SPECIALS TO THE MINER.)
Victoria. July 4.���Vancouver has
long held that their Chinaman on Dar-
cev Island was dead and that Victoria
was salting them for his keep. Last
week Sanitary Olllcer Morris came-
over with thi interpreter and went
out on Sunday by train and pulled
ov.r in a boat to Darcy Island to be
met by their Chinaman as the boat,
touched shore, with, ''Hello, how's
Vancouvei?' from their leper. It cost
Vancouver about 830 to know the

a Hag incident of its own this morning. The Fifth regiment band was
playing in the streets preparatory to
embarking for Port Angeles and the
patriotism of thc storekeeper of the
U. S. navy was roused to a fire cracii-
er stage. Procuring tbe stars and
stripes, he was nailing it across tbe
door when Geo, Jeeves, a retired contractor and pronounced Briton, strode
across and asked the man to take it
down. The storekeeper refused and
���aid he would lick uny one who attempted to do so, Jeeves immediately tore down the flag and threw it
on the lloor. The storekeeper took no
action. Thc general sentiment in tho
city is that Jeeves was indiscieet, al-1
though it is held that in view of the
recent occurrences at Washington and
skagway the Americans will make no
protest.

patrol under a sergeant ordered some
drunken French soliders off the roof
of a house containing a woman into
which they were attempting to force
an entrance. The French were joined by Russians and pelted the patrol
for over an hour. Thc Britisli sergeant behaved splendidly in withholding fire and persuading the Japanese guard to do so also with groat
difficulty. Only when threatened
with extermination did tlie patrol fire
and disperse the mob at the' bayonet
point.

whicli has hitherto been such an easy

CANADIAN NEV.'S
Will Meet the Leander Grew
In the Final Heat This
Afternoon.
(SPECIALS TO THE MINER.)
Henley, July 4.���In the regatta to-
daj the Leander crew easily disposed
of the Belgians and the Pennsylvania
eight beat the Thames Rowing Club's
crew. This leaves the Leanders snd
the Americans to row In thc finals tomorrow and it promises to be one of
the greatest races ever rowed ovei the
historic course.
ITen'ey, July 4.���Theodore Cook,
the well known Oxford oarsman,wrote
the following today for the Associated Press: '��� Again the Pennsylvanians
have enjoyed the best of good fortune
in weather and opponents for their
second victory in the way towards the
final of the Grand Challenge cup.
There was absolutely n. wind all
through the race and neither station
enjoyed the least advantage. The
Pennsylvanians were at the post tint,
on the Berkshire side whicli is usually
not so good as the other. Stroke
Gardner was sitting comfoi tably at. his
ease with his oar handle resting on
his knees and the only man in the
crew who looked the least worried
was Capt. Fliekwere. who no doubt,
realized his responsibility more than
the lest for the race- was an easy one
and a slight accident might wreck
the Pennsylvania!! chances. They
made 41 full strokes in the first minute, though these were far from neat
for there was much splashing and the
first four oars were nearly all late,
while seven was not doing as well as
usual.
"This, however, made no difference
for the Thames crew could only g.t
39 and had lost three-quarters of a
length by the time the island was
passed. The Pennsylvanians continued at full steam, going further and
further away from their weak adversaries. Thoy reduced half way in 3
minutes, 40 seconds, a time which deserves careful remembrance. Soon after this the Thames men were completely out of the hunt. The Pennsylvanians settled into tlui lively-
paddling at half steam at 30 for which
they are so famous, It Is extremely
useful to nurse a crew which has established a good lead and save up its
powers until they are wanted again,
but it has now been seen in this race
for the last time. While they were
going thus easily the Pennsylvanians
got lather caielcsB. Four was rowing
well but neither six nor seven was as
good as he should have been, but
Flickers was rowing with great steadiness and kept his men together capitally while Eisenbray (No. 2) also did
especially good worn, just when thc
stroke side as a whole were rolling
and splashing rather' badly,
'When near the Leander Lawn,about
a quarter of R mile from homo, both
the Gardiners (No.'b 7 and 8) woke up
suddenly and the whole crew got far
more lively though they did not row
as long as they should have done and
when they quickened to 41 in order to
bent tho already beaten crew by a
little farther distance they were by no
means towing as neatly as yesterday,
and the completed course was limed
only 7 miun'es and 33 second;. 1 attach little importance to time test in
comparison as a general rule and shall
not emphasize that. Leanders did
13 seconds better allover, just because
tbe Belgians were a much faster
ci'ew than the Thames, but it must be
remembered that Leander had not
much difficulty and though the day
was dead calm It was not quite as fast
as yesterday, because there was not
that slight following breeze whicli
helped every one yesterday. In spite
of this Leander improved on then
previous peiformance and their improvement has not yet finished.
"But far more Important is the fact
that today the Englishmen reached
Fawley no less than six seconds faster
than the Pennsylvanians and when
the two meet each other, though
there will not be that differencce because     Leander    never   got   furthei
Hamilton, July 4.���A number of

London, Ont., July 4.���The people
of Kirk ton iiave been mourning tho
death of William J. C. Brown, a
young man who lived near that place,
and two weeks ago a memorial service was held for him at the village
church. The youig man had gone to
sei .c In South Africa and some time
ago his father, Samuel Brown, received a telegram announcing' his
son's death on May 38th. Now Kirk-
town people know that the man they
mourned is not dead. His father got a
letter from him on Dominion Day.
This iu itself would not prove tkat be
is alive but the ciiciniistances of his
ease are peculiar. When Brown left
Kirktown he went with his cousin,
nlso W. J. 0. Brown, but called Caleb,
while he was William. Caleb's
home was In Manitoba and as his
father objected to hiin going to wur,
hu came down to Kirktown and went
as William's brother. When the telegram announcing the hitter's death
was received at Kirktown. it was noticed it mentioned Caleb's nrmy list
number, not William's, but little was
thought of this and the memorial service was held. The letter received
on Monday settles the matter, however, because in it William ,1. C,
Hrown tells of the death of W. J.
Caleb Hrown.

PARTIES   AND POLICIES.
The Victoria Post does not think
it any longer necessary to discuss tlie
desirability or otherwise of introduc
ing party Government in British Co
lumhia. We already have it, it says.
There are two parties in the Province,
the Reactionaries and the Progressives.
The Reactionaries are in power, and
tbe Progressives, who aro in the
majority, want organising. That may
be tbe present situation, au-l it might
serve present purposes if parly lines
were drawn on the basis thus suggest
ed. But for a permanent cure of tlie
political evils now afflicting the Province we shall require to go deeper and
farther than this. The natural and
old established division of parties is
the one we shall have to come to in
time, and tbe belief is growing tiial
it cannot come too soon. Let the
Province have such guarantee aa there
is in the responsibility of a recognised party, rather than in that of any
mere individual or faction, and we
shall have more conservative as well
as more progressive legislation. It
will be these for tho reason that personal Interest will be largely eliminated; in due time, entirely so.
A first step towards this end, however, is no doubt the defeat of the
Reactionaries who are now ir. power.
They are a poor lot. and with any
sort of organisation their defeat eo-iltl
easily be accomplished. The Post
suggests u platform of three separate
policies on which to take issue. One
Is an equitable redistribution of seats
In the Legislature: more regard must
be paid to the principle of respresent-
ation by population. Tin: soiond is a
railway policy that will insure competition. As to this The Post says:
"Unless thb monopoly ol Hie Canadian Pacific Railway is broken,the outlook before Hritish Columbia is perfectly hopeless. No portion of the
country has progressed where this
monopoly exists; none can progress
where It is maintained, Under the
fostering care of the Ruacticuarles
it is being pressed lighter and tighter
upon the Province." The third ie fiscal reform, with special reference to
the methods of taxation. Wc again
quote: "Tlie taxes of liritisli Columbia have been ingeniously designed lo
press severely upon industry ill every
shape and form, ami to allow tho monopolisation of the resources of the
ountiy without tlie intention or ability to utilise tbem to go free, The
���nine owner knows this, the sawmill
owner knows this, ami, most of all,
thu working man lias hail it brought
home to him in hitler earnest. Tlie
Iniquitous system of taxation in Brit
Ish Columbia is strangling Industry
and placing labor under a grievous injustice. Hoes a inan wisli to cut tiui
ber, lie is taxed. Hoes a man wish to
work a mine, lie Is taxed, Hoes he
wish to hold a mine without working
it, he is not taxed,   Does he wish  lo
work with liis hands, Ills wages are
pounced upon, while the well dressed
'and huilly dressed bums escap-. All
through It Is tho same." Everybody
will agree there is room for reform
here. In the matter of taxation the
Province is at least fifty years behind
the times. There Is neither rule nor
reason In the present system; If is a
mass of Incongruities, inconsistencies, and Inequalities, without scientific form nnil with no pretension to
the equities.

ignorant Americans who think it patriotic to insult the British flag whenever the opportunity offers.
From Spokane comes word that a
purpose' is brewing to practically rebuild the Spokane Falls and Northern
railway. Curves are to be straightened, grades rediicftl, and wooden struc
tures replaced with earth fills or steel
bridges. This. is understood to be
necessary in order to handle the traffic
that will result from the extension
to Republic. While these improvements are in progress the management might consider whether it
would not he desirable to subject the
Nelson & Fort Sheppard to similar
treatment.
The ministers of Nelson must be
careful how they offend Mr. Houston,
who has taken into his own charge
all the morals of the place. This is
tbe elegant manner in which one of
them was referred to in thai extra-
refined gentleman's paper of yesterday! "Nelson has a sensational
preacher of the Baptist persuasion,
named Morgan. Be is attempting in
frothy sermons to show thut the city
of Nelson is engaged in illegal practices ami winking at vice. An inspec-
ion of tlie police court docket of Helton will show that there is notiiing in
what Morgan is Hinting ever." And
the town stands it. What a self-respecting town it is, to be sure!
Says The Ledge, New Denver:
"The Si! a day scale of wages for plas-
teicrs in Nelson has somewhat dampened building operations. Nelson has
been built up largely upon borrowed
money, and loan companies refuse to
advance funds when houses cost luoro
than the.v think io a safe risk." We
are afiaid the plasterers are not to bo
saddled with all the blame for the
stagnation In the building trade.
There are others, and between them
the conviction has been forced that
building lionses in Nelson is a luxury In which it does not pay to indulge just at piesent. Tlie goose that
was laying the golden eggs may not
be killed, but it has been frightened
out of siglit. In the meantime there
arc busy calculations as to whether It
pays better to work twenty days in
the seaion at six dollars a day, or a
couple of hundred at four dollars,
Theie is no excuse whatever for
that flag Incident at Victoria yesterday, and if that city hus the proper
spirit its public sentiment will condemn it without stint. What u fool
Yankee may do af Skagway or any
other place is no justification for Ihe
Insult offered to the Anieiiean Hag in
Victoria. It was the Fourth of July,
and for many years all over Canada
the raising   of   the American   Hug in

I.AROE MINING DEAL.
Imperial Development   Syndicate Gets
Quarter of a Million For Properties.
One of the malt satisfactory and im-
poilant events occuring on America's
great celebration day was the ratification of a quarter of a mMlion dollar mining deal in this city, whereby
a property of tlie Imperial Development Syndicate practically passes into the hands of the London .t B. 0,
(loldlielils company. A special raeet-
niB of the company was held in the
Hoard of Trade rooms yesterday afternoon with the vice-president, Dr.
Arthur, in the chair. Tlie object
of the mooting was to raitfy an otter
made by the London it B. C. Gold-
liclds Co., Ltd., for the purchase of
the property. The property is situated on Lexington mountain in the
Lardeau district ani includes the Eva
and Imperial groups containing in all
ten claims and fractions.
The offer made for the purchase of
the property is a double barelled one
and consists ot a straight cash payment of (360,000 or a cash payment of
8150,000 and a quarter interest in the
capitalized stock. A resolution was
unanimouiy adopted by the shaie-
holders, who were largely represented, accepting the former otter. Dr.E.
C. Arthur and W. VV. Beer were appointed the representatives of the
company to execute the contract aud
to witness all documents for the company, required in the transaction.
The property disposed of is a large
free milling proposition. The Ottawa
Mining Journal referring to the prop
eity says: "Until tnis syndicate began operations in this district it was
not known that gold to any extent existed there."
A thousand feet of development
work has been done on the property
already and no doubt, under the new
management, will soon be added to
the list of shippers and dividend
payers.
The Eva gtorjp is the most important property in the Fish creek camp
aud consists of the Eva, Iron Dollar
and Last Chance,nnd is situated within two miles of Camborne. It was
first discovered in July 1800. There
are three tunnels, No. 1 being 1,180
feet in length, with a crosscut 2(1 feet
on the vein, with an average value of
?18 per ton No. 2 tunnel is ar, feet
in length and cuts the vein, the average value being $100 per ton. No. 3
tunnel is 59 (ect in length and exposes v.ry good ore. Sqme of the
quartz in No. -' has given assays as
high as S3,000 per ton. In the Imperial gioup, consisting of the Imperial,
Balfour aud Kossland claims, the
quaitz is also, auriferous and the
vein is said to be about 100 feet wide.
Among those inteicstcd in putting
through the above deal are the following Nelson gentlemen, Geo. Kydd, Dr.
E, C. Arthur, VV. VV. Beer, F. Burnett, E, A. Crease, A, II. Grncey and
others.

A GOOD THING.
German Syrup is the special prescription of Dr. A. Boschree, a celebrated German Physician, and is acknowledged to be one of the most fortunate discoveries in Medicine. It
quickly cures Coughs, Colds and all
Lung troubles of the severest nature,
removing as it does the cause of the
affection and leaving the parts in a
strong and healthy condition. It is not
an experimental medicine, but has
stood the test of years, giving satisfaction in every eaBe, which its
vapidly increasing sale every season
confirms, Two million bottles sold
annually. Boschrec'B German Syrup
was introduced in the United States in
1808, and is now sold ill every town
nnd village in the civilized world.
Three doses will relieve any ordinary
cough. Price 75 cts. For sale by VV,

Mr. Taylor is In charge.
A movement is on foot for the construction of a iace]track before another year's celebration. It ia claimed
that there never will be much hope of
procuring the crowds uiili'l some such
attraction is provided, an illustration
of that condition of things being the
fact that_,Grand Koiks secured a large
crowd of visitors while Nelson was
given the go-by. It is proposed to
raise enough money by debentures or
us a joint stock coinpany to purchase
a race track and lease it to a respon
sible coinpany. It is proposed to'hold
a meeting in the city some time next
week for the purpose of discussing
the matter and to make some ai range-
���uent for organizing the scheme.. Already a large a mount of capital has
been HUhscribed provisionally for the
backing of the scheme and there is little doubt that it will go through ,

sidewalks between Ward and Stanley
streets. The electric lights overhead,
used iu Canada's celebration, were
again turned on by the Tramway company, whose generosity during the
past week has been very marked.
Fire crackers of huge size���calculated
to blow into a lot of little pieces any-
venturesome small boys who went too
near them���brilliant skyrockets ind
gorgeous fire balloons added greatly to
the scene.
The band music was certaiuly the
greatest feature of the celebration.
Among the selections played were:
Independentia Marcli, Yankee Doodle,
Marching Through Georgia, La Rose
de Cast ilia, Golden Crescent Overture,
Sousa's S.ars and Stripes, Gems of
Scotland, Weaver's Triumph March,
Louisana Buck Dance, God Have the
King.
At the conclusion of every selection
the band was loudly applauded. The
organization is one that Nelson has
every reason to be proud of and it is
safe to say that no town in Canada of
tbe same population can boast such
an excellent band. The music last
night strikingly showed the lack of
wisdom on the part of ihe celebratiou
committee in having such mediocre
music when such_a high class quality
was available.
After it was aH over the members
of the band and those who risked life
and limb in setting off the fireworks,
were the guests of Mr. Crowe at an
impromptu but sumptuous banquet.
Tha Union Jack and Stars and Stripes
were entwined and were symbolical of
the good feeling that was manifest
between the good Britons and the
good Ameiicans who joined to make
the celebration a great success.

Merry Army of Children Observe   the
Glorious Fourth of July.
THE QLUBlOUS   FOUUTII.
Americana   Assisted    By   Home   Good
Canadians, Have a Celebration.
Nelson bad by no means recovered I
from its two days' celebration of the 1
Confederation ot tbe dominion befoie the glorious Fourth of July���the
great day in the year of the United
States, came around. Iu Nelson there
are many Americans and a great many
more Canadians und Britons generally who are quite pleased to turn in
and help their American cousins fit
tingly observe the natal day of the
greatest 1 -public on earth. Yesterday
was the Fourth, To the Americans it
meant a great deal. Max Crowe is a
good American and he laid plans for
a great celebration early in tho day.
In this lie was heartily seconded by J.
II. Pollard, secretary of the Kooky
Mountain Hangers Hand, himself a
good Canadian, and a better Canadian
because he is perfectly content to help
anybody else celebrate thut anybody-
else's greatest day. About eight
o'clock the bnnd marched forth and
took np Its place in front of Mr.
Crowe's stoic where for over an hour
some excellent music delighted many
hundreds of people who   crowded   the
C. Augustus Waterman celebrated
the 4th of July in a right merry style,
which makes the Dominion Day cele-
biations a four day event. All the afternoon he spent in entertaining the
youth und beauty of the city and succeeded in provining lots of sport for
the boys and girls, who followed bim
around like so many trained animal ~
and were most implicit in their obedience to the' instructions of their
champion. About the middle of the
afternoon they were taken for a street
car ride to the park, tbe ear having
been placed at the disposal of Mr.
Waterman by the Tramway company.
After the ride a number of races were
run on Baker street when the children, winners and losers, boys and
girls, one and all received prizes of
oranges, candies,fruit and Hags. Home
of tlie mothers of the city are loud in
their thanks to Mr. Waterman for his
action in providing amusement for
the "bairns," thus relieving the parents of tbe care of them and thereby
setting tbem at liberty to enjoy tbe
other events of the day without the
worry of thc children. Away lack in
the dark ages, before the historic cow
kicked over the historic lantern whicli
swept out Chicago, Mr. Waterman
was born In the Windy City and although he has been In Canada some
few hundreds of yearn, he has rot forgotten tbat he is an American and
therefore asked the youngsteis to
help him celebrate the glorious
Fourth, Donations were received by
Mr, Waterman aa follows: W. A,
Thiirman, two pipes; Wallace Browne
of the Palm, one box of oranges; J.
A. McDonald, 11 box of peaches; Hud-
Suns' Bay Company, maple candy

PAINT  ADVANTAGE
There ia a great advantage iu painting it
you have good paint.
The paiut we sell goes
on easier anil more rapidly. 7-laves the time of
the |iaiut.ei- and looks
well with less paint.
The i*8l coal isn't any
greater,so the advantage
is plain,
