AT TEE MEETING OF
TIE GITI COUNCIL

Entertainment.
BAKER ST. VERANDAHS
The   Electrio   Light   Flume���Taxing
Photographer���Koping in of Baker
Street Dunne Eaoes.
A meeting of the Nelson City Conn-
oil was held yesterday afternoon at the
City offices. The ouly absentee was
Aidlermau Thompson. The Council
���were honored with the presence of
Mr. W. A. Jowett.
The report of the Pnblio Works Com
mittee was read.    They  made six recommendations to the Counoil, viz :
1. That a second main be laid on
Hoover street to lots 5 and ti, block,
68.
3. That tenders be called for the
erection of a Fire Station Building on
Observatory street, tenders to state
price of a plastered aud unplaBtered
���walls.
8. That applications be invited for
tbe position of caretaker of the City
Cemetery, the salary to bo $25 per
month with a free house and fees for
private graves.
4. That action bo taken with regard
to projecting verandahs on the City
streets, for the protection of public
safety.
5. That a 10-foot side walk be laid
on Ward street between Baker and Viotoria Ht reets.
6. That tenders bo called for tho
completion of the electric light flume;
such tenders to be sent in by 2 p. m.,
on July 6.
As to the second recommendation
Aid. Beer asked the mayor what sort
of building it was proposed to erect.
Aid. Fletcher replied, and stated that
the land had been given to the city
provided   the city erected   a   building
$0.50. Aid. Fletcher estimated the
cost of printing would come to $132.
Afier a short discussion the tender was
accepted.
On the motion of Ald.Hillyor it was
resolved tnat 200 copies be printed.
Tho council discussed the question of
the price of the copies. Aid. Fletcher
wanted to make tho price high. The
only people who would want copies
would be thoso who wanted to attack
tlio City and the lawyers. He would
lika to squeeze the legal goullemen
and suggested that the price be fixed
at $2 a copy. Tho settlement of the
price was loft to tha Finance commit
tee.
A lotter from a Mr. Miller, an intin-
erant photographer 'was read protesting strongly against the tax of .?50
which, as a transient dealer, ho was
compelled to pay. He averred that the
Mayor had been "after him" and had
forced him to pay tho tax or go to
I gaol. Ho had paid under protest.
! had placed the matter in tho hands of
the ablest lawyer in the Province, and
begged tho Council to lofund his $45
iu order to avoid further unpleasantness. They Mayor briefly explained the eironnistanoes of tho case, stating
that Mr. Miller had desired to rofer
tho ni itter to President McKinley.
However the fear of the president of
"God's Country" and ot the ablest
lawyer in the Provinco had no effect
ou the Council,for they ordered the letter to be filed.
A letter from Mr. E. C. Traves to
the health officer (Dr. LaBau) was
road, complaining of the unsanitary
state of certain promises adjoining his
own. The Council referred the matter to Health Officer Thompson to report and if necessary take action on.
A discussion arose as to the advisability of having Baker streot roped in
during the horse races. Aid. Fletcher
thought tne Council should insist on
this being done. However nothing
was definitely decided on and the council adjourned until Thursday, July
6th.

on it. A discussion arose as to how
much should be expended on the building but the matter was subsequently
dropped.
The removul of tho verandahs was
then discussed. The council seemed
to think that if possible they should bo
removed before Dominion Day as they
would then be crowded, and, if an
accident occurred, the City might be
responsible for the same. Tho bylaws
provide tbat .14 days notice should be
given to the owners tn remove the verandahs. Thera not being sufficient
timo to allow of due notico being giv
en, it was thought that possibly the
use of tbe verandahs on Dominion Day
could be forbidden.
Finally tho matter was referred to
the city solicitor in order that proper
legal steps could be taken to prevent
the further use. Tho electric light
flume construction was then inquired
into by Aid. Beer. Aid.Fletcher urged
that action be at onoe takon as tho
lunibei was spoiling. Ho strongly rie-
preoiatod any time labor but desired
that tenders be at onco called for and
the woik completed by contract. The
matter had been delayed from week to
week and it was useless going on putting it off.
Tho report was finally adopted.
Then the entertaining of the visitors
on Dominion Day was discussed. But
$50 had boen allowed by tho central
committee for this purpose. It was
decided to increase this and on the motiou of Aid. Beer it was resolved that
$250 be given out of tlio City funds
to the reception committee in order to
defray the expense of entertaining.
The City Clerk then banded two tenders received for printing the City bylaws. Ho stated that the samo should
have been handed iu before 12 o'clock
on the 28 inst. and that ono of them
tpaB five hours later. Proper notice as
to the call for tenders and time had
been sent to the throe printing housos
in the city. A long argument followed as to how the late tenders should be
treated. Alderman Hillyer and Fletober inBiBtod that only the one tender
(that receive! before 12 o'clock) shonld
be considered. They were both innocent as babes of any knowledge of
whom the tenders came from and said
a hard and fast rule must be made.
The precedent was that tenders which
oame in too lato should uot be opened.
Aid. Beer said that this w.iuld moan
but one tonder to choose from. He
-deemed that the Oity should have
the work done at tho lowest price aud
would suggest that either both tenders
ie considered or now tenders be called
for.
The question of tenders in general
both past and present began to be discussed whon tbo Mayor interposed and
ruled that as only one tender wns received within tho specified time that
tender alone   should   be  openod.   No
Jury Find Thai Cause of the Accident
Was the Victims' Carelessness.
The further sitting of the jury summoned to enquire into tho reoent acci-
dont at the War Eagle Mino, whereby
four miners lost their lives, commenced Monday at 2 p. ni. A. C. Gait
appeared on behalf of the com pany.
Provincial Inspector of Mines Ma?-
Gregor, who had viewed the scene of
the disaster during the morning was
present and put several questions to
the witnesses. John B. Hastings, superintendent of tho War Eagle mine,
was in attendance, but was not asked
to give any evidence.
Charles Coulson, Dr. Kennedy aud
John Fitzwilliams, were the witnesses
called and they as the jury intimated
that chey did uot require any further
evidonoe the coroner gave theso to them
ou the conclusion of Fitzwilliams' test-
imouy and iu about 80 minutes they
returned with the following verdict:
"We, the undersign d jury summoned to enquire into the cause of the
deaths of Daniel Green, Uharlos Sturgess, Charles Lee and Michael Griffin,
after viewing the bodies and tho spot
where the deceased wero at work
when they received tho fatal injuries
and carefully listened to and reviewing the evidence, find that the aforesaid men lost thoir lives from being
struck with rock thrown out by an
explosion, said explosion boing caused
by a drill (operand by two of the deceased) striking powder whioh had
missed lire in whit is called a "cut
hole" in the face of the drift in wuich
these mnii wero at work.
"We aro ot tho opinion that tho acci-1
deut could have been avoided by the ,
exercise of proper caro on the part of |
theso men in making a thorough ex-'
amination of the holes previously
made and supposed to have been propel ly exploded by the Viorkmeu on one
of tho shifts proceeding them. It appears to us in view of the faot that
tho nature of thn work necessitates a
succession, or following one another of
different shifts or gangs of men that
such accidents can only be avoided by
a thorough examination of the faco of
any drift to ascertain if thero aro any
holes which are uot fully exploded before drilling others which may eonie
iu contact with thfin. The failure of
these men to take this precaution was
evidently the primary cause of the accident. Wo are also of tho opinion
that there should be co-operation for
mutual protection on tho part of tho
various shifts working in tho same
faco or drift, in making careful reports
to succeeding shifts of the condition
in which tbey leave their work, especially with reference to any shots that
may not have exploded."

Coroner Bowos then informed the
jury that thoy were discharged from
further attendances.���Bossland Miner.
London June 27.���Tho Internatiou!'!
Council of Women, which assembled
yesterday in the convention hall of
the Church House, Westminster, is
divided iuto five sections or meetings,
which are all crowded. Great interest is takon in the political section
which discussed today tho "Parliamentary enfranchisement of  women."
The vice president of tbe Council,
Mrs. May Wright Sewall, of the United States, pre��iding. Miss Susan B.
Anthony, of the American delegates,
detailed the progress of the movement
in America and the announcement
that a paper would be read in behalf of
the American Women's Sooiety opposing female franchise, which was
met by a storm of hisses.
Mrs. Sewall protested against this
intolerance, pointing out that no one
was obliged to stand it, but that it
was their duty, to listen courteously to ;
all speakers. The paper was then
read with interruptious of ironical
oheors and derisive laughter. It was
written by Mrs. Franoes Soott of
Massachusetts.
In the legislative section Mrs. Kelly
read a paper on the conditions of
tenement labor in New York and Mrs.
O. Tyler described the operations of
the factories and shoo acts in Ontario
and Quebec Miss Octavia Bates of Detroit deploied tho fact that tho nrofes-
sion of barrister was not open to women. Vet women, she pointed out,
were the natural confidants of their
sisters. In Amerioa, tbo speaker continued, medicine and tho church were
open to women but publio opinion, she
olaimod was not sufficieudy advanced
to favor women lawyers, though the
law colleges were open to both sexes,
and many women, like Miss Helen
Gould, who desired to manage their
own estates had qualified there. The
intellectual advantago of a 'egal education, tho speaker asserted, more than
repaid thn out'ay.
Continuing, Miss Bates said there
was great need of the development of
public conscience and the knowledge
of law would givo the feminine side
of marriage and divorce, "now only
treated from man's standpoint."
Tho Duche.. of Bedford presided at
tho meeting of tho prisons and reformatories sootion. Then Mrs. Johnson
of Washington described the success of
,1'omons' reformatories in Mssachu-
sotts and advocated a system of trades
in thoso establishments whereby women might regain thoir self  respect.

EARTHQUAKE IN ITALY.
Rome, June 27. ��� An earthquake shock
of some severity was felt last night at
Pisa and Florenoe.
Ottawa, June 27.���A meeting of the
public accounts committee was called
this morning, but no business was
transacted. Sir Wilfrid Laurier was
present for the second time, to be examined ou the Manitoba election
fraud case, but Sir JHibbert Tnpper,
who had ohargo of the oase was not
present tj conduct examination.
Mr. Foster announced that Sir Hib-
bert was engaged in preparation of a
speech whioh he wbb going to deliver
duriug the afternoon on the Yukon
charges in the Commons and consequently he could not be present. It
was reported that Sir Hibbert will
prefer oharges against offioials and will
ask for a committee of investigation.
W. H. P. Clement, legal adviser to
Commissioner Ogilvie in the Yukon,
is in the oity on business with the Interior and Justice Departments.
Mr. Clement says that Ogilvie's investigation into the charges against
officials waB closed some time ago. and
none of the charges were sustained.
President Shaugbuessy of tbe O. P.
R. was here last night and had a long
interview with the government in regard to the Grand Trnnk and Intercolonial traffio arrangements, which
are to last for 99 years and whioh, the
president of the Canadian Pacific Hail-
way says, is equivalent to giving a leasa
of tho Intercolonial for 99 years. On
tho other hand the Grand Trunk Railway is willing that this should be
changed, the clause being put there by
the government in the interest of the
Intercolonial.
Mr. Blairs railway bill, regarding
operating rules for railways was laid
before the railway committee today
and the firBt clauLe passed.
Montreal, June 27.���The Star in
a leading article tonight headed, "A
monstrous soheme" says: An enquiry
of the government made by Sir Mackenzie Bowell in the Senate has called
publio attention to one of the most
astonishing features of the Intercolonial extension deal, and one whioh has
hitherto oscaped notice. This in nothing less than an agreement by which
the Government of Canada binds itself
for 99 years to give all its west bound
uncousigued traffio controlled by the
Intecrcolonial or its connections, destined for points west thereof reacln 1
by the Grand Trunk and its connections to the Grand Trunk system.
That is to say, for 09 years,all "controllable freight" originating at any
point on the Intercolonial, or its counoc-
itons and destined for Canadian Northwest or British Columbia must go
from tbo western terminus of tho Intercolonial by the Grand Trunk and it:i
American connections.
Foi 99 years the government bind
itself io discriminate against any now
existing, or future Canadian ronto in
favor of tho Grand Trunk and its
United Str.tes allies. Practically for
99 years tbo Graud Truuk is to have
the advanirges without the disadvantages of a leaso of the Intercolonial.
Such stupendous concessions as this
are never granted by one railway company to another without corresponding considerations. | One company
might outer into suoh au arrangement,
aud think itself fairly compensated by
getting a monopoly of tho other company s business for a century ; but surely
it never entered into the head of any
railway man to grant suoh a privilege
for nothing.or to throw it an'jnconsid-
erablo trifle, not worth mentioning,into a bargain.
But what does Mr. Blair get for
Cauada in consideration of bis tying
the bands of the Intercolonial and
making it a feeder of tho Grnud Trunk
and its connections for 99 yearB. He
gets simply au undertaking from tho
Gtnnd Trunk, that all traffio orignat-
ing on that line and iti connections,
destined for points on the' Intercolonial shall bo givou to; the Intercolonial
at Montroal. A moment's thought
will show the worthlessness of the
consideration. There iB no comparison
between the two volumes of businoss
respectively givou by eaoh oompany
to tho othor. So far as points only
reached by the Intercolonial are con-
cornod the concession amounts to nothing, bocanse obviously the freight
would have to go by tho Intercolonial
under any oircumstanoeB. So far as
through traffic for Atlantio ports is
concernod the Grand Trunk's interest
will bo to divert everything possible to
Portland for its own benefit rather
than let it go to Canadian ports
for the benefit of the Intercolonial. It is only fair to tbe House
���f Commons to assume that this per-

ing has been heard from Ambassador Choate as to the results ot the
conference he had today with Lord
Salisbury on this subject, but the
last phase ot the case was that the
Canadian had come back with a
counter proposal in place of accepting the American proposition which

terday between the Derbyshire eleven
aud the Australians the latter were all
out today in thoir first innings for 5118
runs. The home team yesterday was
all out yesterday in its first innings for

Derbyshire in its second innings had
scored 20 runs foi' two wickets.
LAWN   TENNIS   CHAMPIONSHIP,
London,  June ?7.���In   the   cricket j has   been   carefully  drawn with the
sole purpose of preventing any further controversy over the points
already agreed upon between Mr.
Choate and Lord Salisbury. Instead of following the lines of the
American proposal and confining
the counter proposal to a statement
of the points already roughly indicated as marking the boundary
this last issue proposes a radical
change in the line on the Dalton
trail and is of a character wholly in-
accaptable to the American side,
involving, as it does the transfer
into Canadian jurisdiction of the
fortunes and claims of many American miners. Unless there is a
decided abatement of one side or
the other of the demands the desired
modus vivendi will hardly become a
permanent agreement on the boundary question and the chances for a
reassembling of the Joint High
will fade away entirely.

A TIMELY STIRRING UP.
The   Bession   is    far   advanced, but
nothing yet has been heard of that appropriation for the Government building in  Nelson.   Our  delegate spent a
month or so at the Capital, interviewing Ministers and   presenting   tbe necessities of the publio service  in this
Oity in,   doubtless,   tbeir   best light.
He came away loaded   down with fair
expressions  and  promises,  but these
have not assumed material form so far
as known.    Very  opportunely Mr. W.
A. Macdonald direoted attention to the
matter at the  reoent  meeting of the
Council of the Board of Trade. He and
his associates in tbe  Conncil  are   naturally disquieted   at the prolonged silence, an 1 desire that   something definite should be  ascertained  respecting
it.   The House  will soon   have done
witb the supplementary estimates, and
if Nelson is not to be overlooked the
Minister  b^ving  our  application   in
charge must move quickly.    Mr. Mao-
donald's action will at least bring  the
matter  to  a head, and that is something.
Mr. Bostook knows  what our Post-
Oflico   accommodation   is,   and   as   a
member  supporting  the  Government
has a right to expect  that the Postmaster-General   will accept his representation of it.    And  if   Mr.   Mulock
can understand how wholly inadequate
it is to   the   public  requirements  he
should be the first to urge an appropriation. Yet it is believed he is the principal obstaole in the way.   The money
would not be charged   to  his  Department,   as  the  building   ffould   be a
publio work; but evidently he is under
the impression tbat be and bis Department would be held responsible for the
expenditure,   and   as he is just now
laboring in tbe throes of a violent fit of
economy he hesitates  to  endorse  the
application. Owing to the reduction of
postal rates, he has been in great anguish of mind because of an estimated
deficit of  $700,000.   He   was able  to
announce the other day that it would
not exceed $500,000,  and   perhaps tbe
feeling  of  relief will induce bim to
greater generosity.   He   does not appear to appreciate  the fact that  what
is lost to tbe revenue  through  redaction of rates is made np to the publio
in the saving of postage charges.   It is
the people's money in any oase,   and
Mr. Mnlook  is only  their temporary
trustee for the expenditure of it.    To
them  it matters little whether there
is   a   deficit     in    the     Department,
if it oocnrs through a direct lessening
of imposts   exaoted  from themselves.
And iu addition to this   it can be said
that the  Canadian  people   bave never
yet grumbled   at any  expenditure necessary to provide proper postal facili
ties.
Of the necessity for better accommodation of the various Government
servioes in this city there can be no
doubt. It is the policy at Ottawa to
furnish tbis at the publio expense.
Otber places of much less importance
than Nelson have been supplied with
public buildings, and t'. -ire is no reason apparent to the most inquiring
mind why the same should not be done
here.
have come  from   Liberals.    They  are
intended as au electioneering card, and
to gain   elections   anything  required
will be cut to  order.    But it is not a
little singular that Liberal Senators aro
among the most zealous of its   defenders.   The latest  to   enter   the  liht  is
Senator .Power, a leader of the party iu
I Nova Scotia.    Ho  goes   to great pains
to show that tho Senate is not   a   uso-
less or impotent   body, but  that it  is
an   important   feature, of  our Parliamentary   system, deserving   the confidence and support  of    the Canadian
people.    The   vast   majority  of Bills
originate  in the Commons, of course.
Since    Confederation   0!)il    of    these
have boon amended in the Senate, and
the   amendments  concurred  iu.    The
detailed figures   may   be   interesting:

If the Senate amendments were not
in the publio interest, the Commons
did -wrong to accept them. That it
concurred must be taken as evidence
that they were in the right direotioi.
It will be observed, too, thatthe larger

IN
The   Appeal   Oourt   of Manitoba   is
composed   of the four  Superior  Court
Judges.    Recently one   of   them gave
judgment for the  defendants in a suit
to recover the price  paid   for  a car of
lumber.    The judgment was . ppealed.
Of   course    the trial Judge  could not
revise his own  decision, and   the   appeal   was heard by the other three.   It
was allowed, and judgmant entered for
plaintiff for full   amount  claimed and
all costs,    Two   out of the three so de
cided, the   third   dissented; but such
wns the disposition ot  the case, and it
so stands. It will   thus   be  seen   that
the   dissenting   Judge    and   the   trial
Judge hold one view, against the opposite view of the other   two.    There  is
no doubt as to how final judgment has
gone,but whioh is the law in the case?

RESULTS OF   THE   EXPEDITION.
New York, June 2fi.���A dispatch to
the Herald from Monte Video says
The Antarctic steamer Belgica has
sailed for La Plata. M. De. Jerlache,
leader of the late expedition, sums up
as follows the result of 'ns journey to
the Antarctic regions:
1. Discovery of a canal which was
named the Belgica channel.
2. Discovery of an archipelago formerly believed to be an insolated island.
8. Rectification of numerous errors
in the British admiralty maps concerning Fireland and Shetland Islands.
4. The water tempertnre permits tho
supposition that there is a continent
far to  the south.
5. Important discoveries referring
to floral and fauna.
6. Discovery of unknown lands, especially Danco Island.
IN DEFENOE OF THE SENATE.
It is several weeks���the period could
be reckoned in months���since any leading politician or newspaper was moved
to declnre   that   the   Senate   must  be
mended or  ended.   That  most  grave
and reverend  body  has   been given a
long rest.    But it is only the calm between the storms.    Tho Opposition  do
not concoal their intention to fight the
Redistribution   Bill   at   every    stage,
even to the extremity   of  obstruction.
They may delay, but  thoy cannot defeat it, however; it will be  oarried iu
tbe Commons, and  sent on its more or
less joyful way to the Senate.   There
its fato is  problematical.   A few days
ago the leador of  the Opposition, who
ought to know tho mind of the Senate
majority,   intimated as   muoh  as it
���would be   thrown   out.    The Toronto
Globe, that speaks for the Government,
professes to have no doubt  that  the
Senate  will pass it.   It may  bo that
Tbe    Globe's    prognostication    will
prove the true  one,   but  the country
generally  will  be more disposed   to
baok the leader of tbe Opposition.   At
any rate, the popular belief at the present time is that the Senate will defeat
the Redistribution Bill, on the not altogether indisputable ground that it is
unconstitutional.    And should this oc-
our the cry against the 8eaate will be
ronewed, more floroely than ever. That
is the threatening storm, and in anticipation of it a most delightful  calm is
at present prevailing.
There  is nothing  surprising in the
fact that  tho  attacks  on  tbe Senate

NELSON DAILY MINER* WEDNESDAY, JUNE 28, 1899-
THE VISIT OF TI
Arrival of the Excursionists
Yesterday.
A  CORDIAL   WELCOME
Visit of the Part} to Eeisterer's Brewery
���What   Was Done During
Their Stay.
Tlie civil authorities oouoludad, aud
wiBely too, peihaps, that uo better entertainment could be offered to the
visitors, who aro described as members
of the Western Press Association, than a
square meal at one or more of the city's
principal hostelries.
The fiat went forth and the aid of the
Nelson Lord Chamberlain YV. A. Jowett
was invoked, and he, together with a
distinguished party of citizens, was bidden to ascend Ihe hill anil meet the com
ing guests. Tbe train was late so the
party had time to cool down and receive
proper instructions Irom tbeir L. 0.
Then followed the meeting.
The formalities of greeting wore gone
through with iu due form aud the parly
descended the bill. A halt was called at
Riesterer's Brewery, where after due inspection of the premises, the hospitality
of the owner was extended to the visitors in the shape of sundry bocks of tbe
excellent beverage whiob, like its American prototype, hopes some day to make
Nelson famous. On reaching the town
the multitude speedily disbanded. A
number of citizens turned out to meet
those of the Visitors whom I hey had formerly known in Winnipeg aud other cities enst of Kootenay and the crowds
dissolved into small bands.
Mayor Neelands wan indefatigable in
looking after tho material comforts of
the visitors. Ho had arranged tbat ball
of them should dine at the Phair aud Hie
other half al tbe Hume.
\V. A. Jowett waa not lacking in energy in assisting Ihe mayor, iu faot it
was almost au net of daring for a passer
by to attempt to divert his attention
from his duties. Both gentlemen wore laige miniature soup plates
over their button holes which are said to
have been cast in tbe memory of the
event.
AldermsnJFletoher dined at the Phair
with a moriety of the guests while Mayor
N"hIiiimIn and Mr. Jowett attended the
itumo repast.
Dinner finished, the streets became
decorated with numbers of ladies and
gentlemen wearing silken banners hue
The eyes of somnolent citizens were absolutely dazzled with tbe iridisceht
gleam of these multi-colored insignia.
What they represented it is impossible
to say, but they were decidedly fetch ���
ing.
The visit was not of long duration,
and as far as could be ascertained from
the remarks of the visitors, their re-
giet that they could not stay longer
was general.
Considering the very shoit space of
time at their disposal the civic authorities did the best in the way of enter-
ment.
A number of citizens accompanied
the visitors to the wharf and watched
them embark on the good ship Kokanee.
The majority of the pressmen shook
hands warmly with Mayor Neelands,
and while thanking him warmly for his
hospitality, expressed their admiration
at tbe beauty and size of Nelson. One
gentleman thought that it was a disgrace to the city that Mr. W.A-Jowett
had not been included in the Queen's
Birthday honors,
Cheers for the Mayor and City were
called for and responded to, and
amid strains of, "For He's a Jolly Good
Fellow," the National Anthem and
various bellowings of steamboafsirens,
tho Western Press Association departed for Kaslo.
ing to the bursting of a hydrant. Fortunately no outbreak of lire occurred
otherwise the result might have been
disastrous.
The Miner alone suffered for, the
machinery being dependent ou water
power, a large portion of the- type for
Ibis morning's issue had to be set by
hand.
Would it not be possible to put in
hydrants that are warranted not to
burst ?
AT THE OPERA HOUSE.
The Lindley Company will begin 6
four night's engagement at the Nelson
Opera Houso commencing tonight,
presenting for the first time here an
English comedy drama in three acts
eutitled "Everybody's Friend."
It is in this line of plays that Mr.
Linrlloy is sure to be seen at hia best,
it being one of those good old comedies so seldom seen nowadays. As a
special illdnoement to patrons tonight
the compauy will present a double bill,
the second piece "A Young Widow"
a petite cnniediotte. Littlo Mystic,
Littlo Ethel, Mies Wnrde, and Miss

will mako his first appearance here in

night "A Tenderfoot Divine" will
receive its first presentation here.
Seats aro now ou sale at the Opera
House.
LOCAL AUD PERSONAL
NELSON CATHOLIC CHURCH.
A meeting of the members of the
Nelson Catholic Ohurch choir was held
at   Mr.   Patenaude's store  yesterday
"nning. The choir now numbers 12.
Mr. Rrougham consented to act as
choirmaster, It was decided to nt once
commence practising a mass for the
opening of (lie new church, and Gounod's Sacre Coeur Mass was suggested.
One or two members of the Nelson
Musical Society have kindly offered
their assistance on that occasion. If
possible a small orchestra will begot
together to assist the choir, The mem
hers all seem energetic and willing to
learn : if only they continue so they
may rest assured of success.
Mr. 0. E. Tisdall, M. P. P., of Van
couver is staying at the Hume Hotel.
Mr. C. R. Melbourn left Nelson for
Vancouver yesterday. His company,
the Dominion Mining Development and
Agency company, bave moved their office to tbat oily.
Mr.Wilson caught a nice trout weighing two and a half pounds with a Paris-
oienne Belle yesterday evening just op-
po-iite the 0. P. R. wharf. The water is
still rising too rapidly for good sport.
Winnipeg is much farther from Oregon than Nelson, yet in Winnipeg,
Oregon strawberries are selling retail
tor fifteen cents a box. Here they are
enough to take your breath away.
Tho trophy to be presented by Mr.
J. J. Walker to the winning hose team
on nonunion Dav is on exhibition to-
-lay in Mr. Walker's window on Baker
street. It is well worth au inspeotion.
The reception committee for Dominion
Day met last night and decided to engage a, room in tbe Tumor-lloek block,
where refreshments will be served to the
visitors. A separate room for ladies will
be also engaged.
Dr. and Mrs. Kellar and infant son arrived heio yesterday. They will stay in
Nelson for a week or so, the Dr. having
mineral properties on Rover Oreek which
he intends to deTe'op thiB summer.
They are staying at W. F. Brougham's
house.
A beautiful English rifle, made by
Hollaud, is to be rallied at the Bodega
saloon. A detachable telescope sight, a
novelty in -Nelson, is included. The rifle
can be iuspected and tickets obtained, 50
cents each at tbe Bodega. As soon as
2U0 tickets have beeu sold the drawing
will to ke place.
Says the Record: "Many of the
people in Rossland who are expecting
to take part in tho Dominion Day
celebration at Nolson are complainiug
because programmes of the different
sports and the rules which will govern them have not been sent here.
Thev foel that they were entitled ts be
iu possession of these facts long bofore
this."
One of the chief features of entertainment during the afternoon and
evening of .True 110 and Dominion Day
will bo a series of dances in Fraternity
Hall, corner of Baker and Kootenay
streets. These dances are under tho
management of the Friendly Societies
of Nelson, and aro deserving of the
heartiest support. The fact that Herr
Steiner's Elite Orchestra of six instruments, is engaged should be a very
strong attraction as all who remember
the Library Ball kuow how much this
famous orchestra conduced to the success ot the evening. There will be
violin, 'cello, bass viol, cornet, trombone and piano. No effort has been
been spared by the management to administer to tho comfort of all who attend these dances.

Yesterday Chief of Police Jarvis was
busy hurtling against several dead-
heats and .sharpers who have lately
congregated here. They were promptly told to leave or take the consequences.
In one case two men had recently
arrived by steamer and were told to
return by the same steamer to the
place from whenoe they came. They
pleaded want of funds and pointed out
that they could not walk. They were
informed that In that case they would
have to swim or else go the gaol.
They found enough money to pay
their return fare.

KOOTENAY
Mining Stock Quotations.
Compiled by J, L, Vanstone, Successor lo H.
G.   McCulloch,     Mining    Broker,
NelBon. B. 0., P. O. box 109.
Messrs. MoLieod aud McDonald,
blacksmiths, have just returned to
town after completing their assessment work on two mica claims of
which they are the prinoipal owners.
The claims are situated ten miles from
Pilot Bay, on Crawford Oreek, between
the creek and lake. The deposit apparently is a large one and the mica of
good quality. It is near the surface,
and they have two shafts, twelve and
fifteen feet deep, and two tunnels, ten
and twelve feet, on the property.
Samples of the mioa are on exhibition
at theirblacksmith shop
*   #   *
Among the properties in the Boundary Creek upon which a largo amount
of work has been done during the last
few months is the Jewel mine in
LongJLako camp. The Jewel is one
of the oldest locations in the district.
It is situated in Long Lake camp near
the lake and within eight miles of
Greenwoood. A good wagon road connect tbe property with the oity.
The Jewel was bonded by Mr. Leslie
Hill, M. E., for the Prospeoting Syndics ta ol' B. 0. A considerable amount
of work was carired out ou the property ami the first' steam plant ever
brought to the district was installed
thereon. Mr. Hill's other engagements
prevented his giving the s) necessary
time to the development of the property so he mapped out the plan of development and the mine was plaoed in
charge of Mr. Gilbert Mahon. In the
meantime another company was organized in London, to confine its attention
to the development of.the Jewel mine.
This company is registered as the
Jewel Development syndicate. Mr.
Mahon took charge of the property
in November last year and since then
520 feet have been added to the work of
the property. There are now over 1,000
feet of underground work.���Boundary

ARBITRATION BOARD.
German   Delegates    Said    to    Have
Agreed to Anglo American Plan.
The Hague, June 27.���For the next
few days the members of the speoial
drafting oommittee who are preparing
a record of Ihe work already accomplished, will be the only peace conference delegates occupied. The question
of a permanent arbitration board and
Germany's relation thereto, the German delegates, it is said having resolved to accept the principle of a permanent tribunal of arbitration as
outlined in tbe Anglo-American plans,
will be discussed Monday.
London, June 28.���The correspondent of the Standard at the Hague says:
"The proposals of Mr. Mollis of the
American delegation for tbe revision of
the arbitration tribunal's judgments
has been postponed for tbe present,
but theie is no doubt it will eventually be approved.
In the whole arbitration matter the
United States haB scored a signal success. Most of the ideas of the American delegates, having been adopted.
Their representations in Berlin, secured the German's assent. I hear that
the full conference will deal with the
American proposal to private property
at sea, all opposition baBed on the question of competence being abandoned.
Most probably, however, it will be adjourned to a future conference.

The Cup Defender Proves to Be  Good
in Speed.
Newport. B. I., June 27.���In a good
whole sail breeze this forenoon the
now cup defender Columbia and the
Defender, champion of 1895, had a
second and more thorough test aB to
their speed than in the light airs of
Saturday, and again the new boat
proved that in windward work she
could both outpoint and outsail the
other oraft. The two boats had about
as good a race as possible without going over a measured course. Both carried mainsail, fore sail, jib and working topsail und for an equal length of
time the two used small jib topsails.
The steady breeze was just strong
enough to heel the boats prettily. The
racers beat to windward in a single
southwesterly direotion for almost two
hours, and during that time they travelled fully ten miles toward Block
Island, from Brentons Reef, and when
sheets were eased off on the trip baok to
Newport, tbe Columbia was between
two and three minutes in the lend.
New York, June 27.���The yachtsmen who saw the brushes between the
now sloop yacht Columbia and the Defender, tho champon of 1805, today aro
not so enthusiastio tonight over the
speed of the new boat as they were after the short skirmish off Jametown
on Sunday forenoon. Today the two
great racers met under different conditions than those which prevailed in
tbe first trial. Instead of a light air,
which scarooly heeled the two boats
over the wind today was a good whole
sail breeze from the southwest which
oompellod the crews of the yachts
to lie out to windward in real raoing
fashion. Under these cond'oions the
Defender mado a most excellent showing and her performances this afternoon somewhat depressed the owners
and admirers of the Columbia.
THE BOY  CRICKETER.
London, June 27.���A. E. J. Collins,
the 14 year old Clifton College sohool
boy, whose remarkable batting has excited the interest of all oricket playors
here, carried his bat through the
innings today for 028 runs. When his
partner was caught out Collins had
bflen at the bat seven hours. The total
score for his side was 888 runs.
KVELLOW FEVER IN HAVANA.

PREJUDICE
Is the cause of many a Batch of Bread having to be thrown
into the sewer, and a woman's time and labor gone
with it. If you weren't so prejudiced you could have
just as good success with your Bread as your neighbor.

Thousands are using it with success ; why not you ? If it
