Nelson, British Columbia, Wednesday, June 27, 1900.
Tenth Year
Citizens   With   Boats   and
Stores Should Begin
At Once.
The Water   Carnival   Must
Be  Made a Grand
Plenty of Bunting and Flags
Can   Be   Secured
It is desircil liy tlie Carnival (leneral
Committee that all owners of boats
in Nulson make an effort to have
thein in the Water Carnival next
Tuesday evening. They must be decorated and as an incentive to this end
the Water Carnival Committee has
set aside a liberal amount for prizes.
Ab this portion of tlie two day's programme is a distinctive feature of the
celebration it behooves all patriotic
citizens to aid in making it what
visitors will expect it Ui he.
In addition, too, it Is desired that
business men begin early In decoration of their stores, particularly on
Baker Street. There are plenty of
flags and bunting to be had in the
city and a few dollars expended judiciously will go a long way toward
giving the city the appearance it
should have. Citizens should remember, too, that they are desired to decorate their homes. Nelson must outdo
itself this year for the visitors are
coming in thousands.
The Winnipeg crew arrived early
yesterday morning on tho steamer
Moyie and have begun their practice
work for the race with Vancouver next
Monday. They remained on the
steamer until about 8 a. m., when they
were met by a deputation from the
Nelson Boat Club and escorted to the
Phair Hotel, where they will make
their headquarters during their stay
They are a fine, athletic looking lot
and will snrely give Vancouver a hard
tunic for the cups next Monday. The
orew is |niadej up ns IoIIowb: Riley,
stroke; Hayes. 3; Hamber, 2, and Bole,
They brought their own shell with
them and by noon yesterday they were
all down at the boat houso preparing
for their lirst work on Nelson waters.
The boat is a handsome one nnd
seeniB sadly out of company in the boat
house, which, considering the advantages Nelson possesses, should most
cerbunly contain one or two boats of a
similar character. One end of tho boat
house has been knocked out in space
sufficient to make a stall to accommodate the two boats of the visiliugcrews
and the local oarsmen will spore no effort to make the visitors at home dur.
ing their stay here.
About 2:30 in the afternoon the Win-
nipegs lifted their shell from tho rack
end in ft moment or two she was
dropped lightly into the water nt the
rear of the Iwat house, and the men
were off for a spin. They took quite a
long row, being out for over an hour,
and went quite a distance up the lake.
They handle their boat neatly Bnd pull
a strong steady stroke tbat is the result of clean, careful practice work on
their own rivor.
The following sketoh of the various
members of the crew, taken from the
Winnipeg Free Press of Inst Saturday,
Is of interest in showing that the men
are old hBnds at the game:
"With 'Con* Riley as stroko. Fred
Bole, bow; 'Tommy' Hamber, 2, and
H. Hayes, 8, the Winnipeg Rowing
Club has what promises to bo a four
well able to represont them on Kootenay Lake at the Nelson Water Carnival
on Monday, July 2. Mr. 0. H. Riley
has riann from practically a novice of
three years ago to one of the fastest
and iteadieBt strokes iu the club. Hie
rowing has been, with the exception
of a win at Rat Portage in 1808, purely
local, but for all that the club have
erary confidence In his being *M�� to
Mta pwe before the Vancouver crew
that will do him no discredit. Mr. Bole
is ono of the youngest members of the
chili, but shows a coal head iu bow, and
rows a clean, neat stroke. He rowed
with Riley in 1808, when Riley made
his debut us stroke of a four, and won
out at the summer regatta of the oluh
in that year. Mr. T. E. Hamber is
probably the oldest hand at the oar,
having been a member of the club for
some years. He is an all-round athlete,
being known in nearly every pure outdoor sport. Mr. Hayes is the biggest
man of the fonr, and ii generally considered to be built of thu material used
for the giants of old. He rowed with
Marks' senior crew against tbe James
Bay four in '08."
The four-oared shell brooght to Neb
son by the Winnipeg crew is no ordinary everyday boBt. It has traveled
and seen much, and its little trip from
Winnipeg to Nelson Is the shortest
kind ot a jaunt, It was built especially
for the Winnipeg crew that contested
at Henley, and has therefore crossed
the Atlantic twice. In addition to this
it has carried Winnipeg boys to viotory
at Minnetonka and elsewhere, and it
now bus the additional honor of boing
the first paper shell on the Nelson
wuter course, n course that some day
should be the gathering pluce of crews
and boats from all of the rowing cities
of the West, Middle West and Pacific
Recently announcement wsb made
that floats for the trades procession
could be made IH feet high, but it
was ascertained yestcrdny by City
Engineer McCulloch that In some
places the trolley wires are only 111
feet from the ground, and for that
reason no floats Bhould be made over
15 feet high iu order to pass under
the wire with safety. Last year the
Hudson's Bay Company's float, which
was a very handsome one, was caught
in some wires and badly damaged.
The business men of Nelsou have decided tbat tbe City should bo handsomely decorated for Dominion Dny aud
many of them'.are now at work designing decorations for their buildings. To
iHinte the words of one of Nelson's
prominent business men the town is
gettiug suoh a number of people here
from outside points that it should do all
in its power to make Nelson the most
talked of City in this part of the country. Imperially along Baker Street
should an effort bemBde to beautify the
town and one gentleman whose plaoe of
business is on that thoroughfare Bays
that he will make his front ' 'so elsbor-
ate that it will dazzle the eyes ot all beholders." Ward Street is another
street that should be decorated and
thus tbe two prinoipal streets, upon
which most of the visitors will congregate, will impress themselves upon the
memory of nil. The Oity will, of coarse,
take part in tbe decorating, but the
merchants should spare no effort to
make the general effect most brilliant.
Mr. Halton, who will have charge of the
decorating for the Oity, will be glad to
make any suggestions to snyoue who
contemplates suoh decorations and oan
bo found at Teetzel's drug store during
the dny.
The Nelson Footbnll Club at a
meeting Inst night decided upon the
team which will play against Knslo
next Monduy nfternoon at the recreation grounds. The line-up will be
ns follows:
(loal, Rev. Ocorge Monroe; backs,

half-backs, W. J. Montgomery, J.

\V. Martin, T. Duncan; eentre-for-
wnrds, 1). McNichol; left-forwards,
A. T. Boeluncr, J. Thomson; reserves,
L. A. Hodge and F. W. Lang.
The men hnve been working hard
in practice and Knslo will have to
piny u swift game to come in sight of
the trophy.
A meeting of the Football Club will
be held In the Waverly immediately
after practice tonight to make arrangements for the Knslo match and
other business.

retired, and the feeling of the Ontario
Liberal contingent i-eeins to be against
him. It is not thought Tarte is personally disliked, but his practice of
making speeches which embnrnss the
Government and put others in a false
position has caused many of his friends
to weaken and to agree that it would

prospeols at the coming eleotion if be

Mr. Maxwell (Burrard) said that a
member of the Opposition had made certain reckless charges ugainst theoitizens
of Vauoouver. He wonld have brought
the matter up before, but he expected
that Sir Hibbert Tapper would hnve
taken steps to have proven his statements.
Mr. Foster wanted to know if a
member of tbe House oould ohargc another member of the House with being
reckless on a telegram from an outside
party. The Speaker aaid that the statement reckless was not Parliamentary and
should be withdrawn.
Mr. Fielding was not going to
say whether it wns right or wrong to
read this telegrnm, but he did not
think that the member for York

Washington, D. 0��� June 86,���The
purpose of the Government to place
an adequate military force in China
was made clear today when orders
were issued U (leneral CliuiTee to
Ink,- ciiiuiuiiiid nt the forces in China
aud to proceed ut once to assume his
new duties.
More significant probably than the
assignment itself was the wording of
the formal orders to General ChiitTee
issued lnte in the day hy Acting Seoretary of War Meiklcjnhn, directing him
to take command of the troops ordered to China and to proceed to l'ekin by
way of Snn Francisco and Taku, accompanied by his aides,"
It bad been expected the military
forces would be concentrated at Che
Foo or some other convenient base
but the direction to proceed lo Pekin
indicated a firm determination ou
the part of the Qovernment authorities to have a strong military force at
the seat of the Chinese Government.
The announcement of (leneral Chaffee's assignment and the orders to
proceed to Pekin came ufler the State
Department bad declined lo accede to
n second proposition from the six
great Viceroys of China that foreign
troops be kept out of China until LI
Hung Chang reaches Pekin.
In a formal manner, with Ihe signatures of the six Viceroys representing
the greater part nf the Empire, Minister
Wu repeated today his plon of yesterday
that the foreign tumps be kupt out of
tbe country.
Secretary Hay laid the formal request
of the Viceroys before the Cabinet mect-
ihg but there waa no diaposiliou lo vary
from tbe President's determination, already made known by Seoretary Hay to
the Chinese Minister, to send the l-'nit-
ed States forces to such points as were
menaced anil where ourofiloials aud citizens were in danger.
While the Viceroys spoko for their
Provinces they oould not spunk for
Pekin, and it is to l'ekin tbat tbe ollieials most anxiously look.
Minister Conger is still silent and
tho latest advices have shown that
little reliance can lie plnoed on the despatches from Shanghai saying the
Ministers and Legations at Pekin were
safe. For this reason the orders to
Ueneral Chaffee to proceed to Pekin
took on an added meaning.

his case within the four corners of

the safe side, however, he hits resolved to go back to his constituents and ask for their approval. In
doing this Mr. Dunsmuir is demonstrating a respect for Parliamentary

It is said that Mr. Blair will retire from the Cabinet at Ottawa and

Now tbat the elections are over,
and there is no longer occasion to
simulate an indignation for which
there was never the least ground, it
is freely admitted that the voters'
list in the Slocan is in a vile condition and needs cleansing, When
an attempt was made to do this a
few weeks ago it was characterised
as an assault on the privileges of
free British subjects and a vast
amount of twaddle was indulged in,
in the not entirely vain hope of making capital for one of the candidates.
There was a similar spurious eruption in connection with the list in
Nelson, to which several hundred
names were added in glaring contradiction of both the spirit and letter of the law. It should be one of
the first duties of the new Legislature to give to the Province an Election Act that will not be so easily li-
liable to the abuses that were successfully practised in these two constituencies.
The Colonist, remarking on the
notable lack of singing birds in British Columbia, intimates that as
Minister of Agriculture Mr. Turner
may take such steps as may be necessary to supply the deficiency.
This could only be done by encouraging their importation. The absence of feathered songsters in our
splendid forests has been a cause of

rebuked, got together this evening and
unanimously decided to tender that
gentleman the nomination in Viotoiiu
in opposition to J. 11. Turner. People
who are not entirely crazy do not think

But beyond the pressure there has
been no imperative action taken, nor
has it been definitely determined �� hat
course will be adopted if the temporizing of Turkish diplomacy is carried to
the point of actual failure to meet the
American demands,
Sir Colin Campbell, although the
hero of many splendid achievements
in the Peninsular, Wiilehcren, Demer-
lu-n.  China*, Sikh und Crimean    wars,
is best remembered ln British hearts
in connection with his magnificent
conduct of the campiiigii arising out
of the Indian mutiny. For his brilliant services during those stirring
times Sir Colin received a peerage lis
Lord Clyde and a pension of ��2000 per
annum. Ills career Is more worthy of
our admiration in that It was entirely
self-made, the gallant Sir Colin being:
neither of g/ood family nor possessed
of the initial advantage of a good education.
For his capture of Mngdala and tho
oousequent turmiuntiou of the Alive
sidian War ou April 18th, 18(18.
General Sir Robert Napier was awarded the stereotyped _200n per annum,
and received, iu addition, the double
dignity of a field marshulship and the
title of Lord Nupier ot Mugdnlu.
Of late, however, the life pensions
have dropped out of favor. For instance, the present Commander-in-
Chief.LoidWolseloy.reciiived a grant of
��26,000 only for bis successful oonduct
of the Ashuutee onmpnign of 1872-1874,
while for the Egyptinu campaign of
1882 and the Nilo expedition of 180-i he
reoeived n peerage und a viscountoy,
respectively. Similarly, Sir Herbert
Kitchener emerged from the shambles
of Omduriunn with the title of Lord
kitchener of Khartoum and a much
debated grant of ��85,000,
