racing standpoint of view as itennbled

points, namely, heating to windward
and running and reaching. Shamrock
showed to the beet advantage in beating to windward,aud gained six minutes on Britanuia as the eight miles
beat to the Nab lightship from the
start although beating is considered
one of Britannia's strong points. On the
run bnck to Oowes, the Shamrock's
gain was less Derceptible considering
tho distance���about fifteen miles, but
Shamrock did not set ber club topsail
and so did not do her best. On the
race home Shamrock did better. She
could evidently have done the distance
in a much shorter time if she had been
put upou her metal. Shamrock is decidedly the fastest boat ever launched
in these waters. No other craft never
gave Britaui.ia such a heating ou a
fnir sailing trial. There was considering niauoneveiing of the ynchts before the start. The opinion was fre��ly
expressed that Shamrock did not appear to be so well handled as Britannia which was in the hands of Veteran Carter- who skippered her sneess-
frilly against the Vigilant in 1804
Tho Britannia was sailed beautifully
and excited general admiration among
the immense crowds of fashionable
persons who witnessed the return of

SENSATIONAL SUIT AT SPOKANE
Col. Peyton is Accused of Having Two
Wives.
Spokano, July 17.���A most sensational suit wus begun today iu the superior oourt of this county. Colonel I.
N. Peyton, uutil recently president of
the Exchange National bank, owner
of the big Povton block and identified
with a Uumber of mining companies
in the northwest, is made defendant
in au action brought by a former wife
unw living in   Denver, Colorado.
Tbe woman's name ia Helen M.
Peyton, aud she relates how Colond
Peyton camo to Spokane under the ns-
snmed name of Colonel George H.
Morgan and ncquired considerable
property. It is further alleged that he
" pretended to marry auother woman
named Victoria Houghton," and is
now unlawfully living aud oohabita-
ting with said woman as his wife.
Allegations of fraud are made
against the Colouol iu the settlement
of a former action Suit is now begun
hy the former wife to recover one half
of the property of the Colonel, which
is estimated at over 110,050,000. The
complaint in the oase is one of the
most sensntional of the kind ever filed
in Spokane aouuty. It recalls the
early days of Colonel Peyton'b operations in this oity and his subsequent
acquisition of a fortune.
The oomplaiut, which is of great
length, in Bnbstance, relates that tbe
plaintiff and Colonel Peyton were mar
ried in Champaign County, Illinois,
in 180!), and sho is still his lawfully wedded wifo. For nearly 10 vears
they resided in Colorado, when Gol-
ouel Peyton took her to St. Louis,
where he left her, and started out west
to seek, as he said, a now home, when
he wonld send for her.
She never heard of him again until
18S0, when she learned that he whb ie-
sidiug in Spokane under the nssined
name of Colonel George H. Moun\
and that he had pretended to niairy
the wimin with whom he is now living.' She instituted legal proie^d-'
ingH for a settlement upon her of one
half the o-mumnity property which
he had acquired to i rovide means for
her support, when he gave her $3,000.
alleging that he ouly owned $6,000
worth of property. Subsequently she
learned that he had at thit time investments in property much in exoess of thnt
amount, and that since that time she
hns been informed that he hud acqm.ed
prooerty, including valuable realty in
Santa Barbara. California, to the value
of over one million dollars. She prays
tho court to decree her one half of this
property.
The news of the filing of the suit
will croate a profound sensation in
Spokane and Santa Barbara society,
where Mrs. Peytou and her daughter
Helen are prominent figures.

M.   Genffrien   Passed   Away
His Home Yesterday.
Vandemill, Que., Jnly 18.-Hon. O.
A. Gnoffrnin, Minister without port
folio iu the Dominion Govommeut,
diod ut his residence at D'Oreln at 3:15
this morning. Death came very peacefully.
The Traves probeev.tion occupied
the attention of Magistrate Crease all
day yesterday. The information charged him with unlawfully constructing
an nddition to a frame building in
toe City without haviug obtained the
authority of the fire wardens and
building inspector and thus infringing By-Law No. 7.
At the outset Mr. S. S. xaylor, Q.
C., who appeared for Mr. Traves, objected co the information and said it
did not disolose an offence under the
by-law or otherwise. The objection
was noted.
Mr. Gallihor, who appeared for the
prosecutiou, applied lo have the information amended, which was allowed.
The City Clerk was called to prove
tho by-law. He was closely cr.iss-ex
auiined by Mr. Taylor as to how the
by-law had been drawn up and the fire
limits defined. He was uot aware of additions being made, contrary to the by
law, to the Queen's Hotel nnd Dr. Arthur's building. He was aware of
an addition to tbe Applewhaite block
which wns a violation of the by-low
and no steps bad been taken to remove
the same. The Vanoonver Hardware
Co. 's extension was believed to conform with the by-law. The Salvation
Armv had, however, erected a wooden
bnilding which violated the by-law
and no notion had been taken aaginst
them by the City. P. Bums & Oo.
were allowed to move their building
temporarily during the construction of
their new brick block. This applica
tiou was originally mado by Postmaster Gilker and the by-law was amend
ed so as to allow this aud similar application to be granted. Upon cross-
examinations witness said that the
Salvation Army and Applewhaite
buildings were ereoted betore tho revision of the by-laws.
Fire Chief Thompson was called and
testified that he had requested Traves
to stop building. Mr.Taylor's cross examination of the witness tended to
show that tho building in question
was incomplete.
Mr. McCullocb, the  Oity  Engineer,
practically corroborated   Mr.   Thomp
son's evidence    and   proved   moreover
that no   permit   hnd  been   signed  by
him for  Mr. Traves.
This olosed the cise for the prosecution.
Mr. Taylor called no evidenoo for
the dofence but immediately began his
argument. He drew a wide distinction betwe��n a building and an addition to a building. The Municipal Act
gave power to the Oity to pass bylaws to prevent buildings being erected within the fire limits, but that
did not apply to additions to buildings already ereoted. By-Law No. 7
(whioh was tho bylaw stated in the
information to have been violated) hud
not been signod or sealed.
The By-law which gave power to the
Oity ofllcors to enter any building at
anv time wns unreasonable nud it was
ultra vires for a by-law to imposo punishment on au owner who refused to
allow a Oity officer to outer his building. Thore is no power given hy tho
Municipal Aot of a Oity to constitute its fire limits. Moreover tbe Oity
can only prohibit tho erootiou of
buildings and not regulate the same;
nor can the Oity give permits for erection of buildings or make any exceptions. The Counoil hnd no power to
direct Traves to pull down the building nor to fino him for not doing so in
accordance with the notico served ou
him. The by-law providod that offenders ngaiust the fire by-laws could be
tried b��fore tho Mayor but this was
ultra vires.
Mr. Taylor's excoediugly able and
exhaustive address lasted over tour
hours so it is impossible to givo more
than ono oi two points of his argument. The revised by-laws received a
sovere handling, and if Mr. Taylor is
correct, are very imperfect.
Iu fact the ohjeot Of the defence was
centered in breaking down the validity of tho by-laws, Bave for one brief
degression when Mr. Taylor critioised
the action of the Oity in not doaling
alike witb all offenders ot the fire
by-laws. Mr. Gallilior strongly resented this, nnd a heated argument
betwoen counsel arose whioh might
have ended in a tragedy had  not   Mr.

There was a largely attended meeting of tue Board of Trade yesterday,
when tho question as to how the delegates to the joint meetings of the
Kootenay and Boundary Boards of
Trade at Rossland were to speak and
vote, was to be deoided.
Thoso who anticipated a lively soene
were doomed to disappointment. The
Turner-Houston faction completely
caved in and their handiwork at the
previous meetiug was negatived with
only one dissentient vote. This was
Btrauge, seeing that there were many
present who supported Messrs. Turner
and Houston at tbe former meeting.
As many as 85 members were present,
namoly Messrs. R.Robertson, Fletoher,
J. A. Turner, W. A. Macdonald;
Marks, Jowett, Campbell, Houston,
Newliug, Neelauds, Hillyer, MoLeod,
Lamont, Gaxble. Kirkpotrickk, Dunoan, Madden, Kelly, Thomson, Dr
Arthur, Holt, Gilker, Hodgins, Kydd,
Morley, Bellamy, Renwick, Lay,
Rowley, Sherwood, ByorB, Hamilton,
Gihbs, Peters  aud the Secretary.
The President not being on time,
Mr. Turner moved that Mr. Houston
take the chair. Mr. W. A. Maodonald
moved an amendment that Mr.
Fletcher take the chair, and the amendment was curried.
Mr. Houston at onoe rose to a point
of order and asked wbo bad called the
meeting and for what purpose?
The ctnirman replied that the meeting waB called in the ordinary way by
the President.
This answer did not satisfy Mr.
Houston who referred to Parliamentary procedure but was out short by
he chairman ruling that the meeting
was duly called.
The miuntes of the previous meetiig
were then read aud adopted.
The President then arrived and took
tha chair.
Mr. Hodgins moved and Mr. Kelly
seconded the following resolution :
"Be it resolved tbat the delegates
appointed to attend the joint Hoards of
Trade meeting at Rossland, or their
substitutes, be authorised and instructed to bring up for discussion,
and to vote upon any subjeot under
consideration in suoh a wav as they
consider to be in the best interests of
this distriot; and that any resolution
passed at the last meeting ot this
Board whioh conflicts with suoh authority be hereby resoinded."
Mr, Turner rose to orr'er ai d reiterated the remarks with which Mr Hcns-
ton had opened the ball.
Tbe President thought that Mr Turner had been out of order at   tbe  last
meeting.
"Then why sir, do you not rule Mr.
Hodgins out of order now, even a
President of a Board of Trade may
sometimes be expected to be consistent. " said Mr. Houston
Mr. Turner further objected on the
ground that the resolution waB a politioal one.
The chairman in roply to Messrs.
Turner and Houston read the bylaw of
the Board which makes it the president's duty to regulate the order of.and
convene meetings; nlso to allow discussions on whatever he may think
may be of interest to miuing and trade
interests.
The question'was then put and tho
resolution was carriod with but one
dissentient, viz. Mr. J. A. Turner.
The o'lairmau began to deal with a
communication he had reoeived from
a member as to procedure but, the
question whioh hnd called for the
meeting having been decided, member's showed impatience for an adjournment, the motion for which was
carried unnnimouBly.

THE COLUMBIA FIRE.
Further particulars of tho bursting
of the Columbia hotel at Columbus
on Monday morning are to hand.
The loss is estimated to be $10,000
above the insurance carried. All the
guests were in bed at the time, but
fortunately they esoaped. Three
hundred dollars worth of furniture was
saved. Two men jumped from the
second story window, one of them,
Frank Buset,formerly of the hotel, be-
irg badly burned about the head and
one arm. The lessees of the hotel were
Morgan & Escaleet. Esoalet was burned out less than three weeks ago at
Greenwood. The hotel had just been
re-opened after being completely refurnished. It was the finest hotel in
the Boundary oountry. It iB said
threats were made that it would never
be reopened and there is a strong suspicion of incendiarism. Tbe owner of
the property was the Columbia Town-
site Company. What oanuot be explained is that the fire started in a remote closet on the back part of the
bnilding. There were fears that tbe
fire niignt spread through the town,
but as there was no vind it was confined to the hotel.

Port Huron, Mioh., July 18.���Tho

tent great oarop and ladies organization during tbe biennial period was
98,058. The membership of supreme
tent nt preseut iu 18,381. Tbe financial statement shows a surplus on hand
of $403,030.
Washington,   July   18.���The following statement was given out this afternoon at the otate  Department:   "The
State Departmant yesterday  reoeived
from   the  Philippine   commission   an
important  despatch    conveying   these
facts: Bv the oo-operation of the military und commission, municipal  governments have been   established   in  ���
series of   important   towns   in Providence, Manila aud Cavite.    These  are
working admirably and one good effeot
of them is that   considerable  numbers
of insurgents are  constantly deserting
and coming in and some of them with
arras.    The system will soon be extended to other towns whioh are asking for
it   Continued success in t his direction
will mean the beginning of the end. "
Despatches   from     Dr.   Schrnmer   on
his    return   from his    trip   through
southern part of the   islands  were   of
the same   purpose.    A   disposition   to
accept   American   sovereignty and to
welcome our  troops  was   everywhere
manifested.    Tbe    report   of  General
OtiB of the 28th of June referred to by
Commissioner Denhy in the above despatch stated that as a  consequence of
the rainy season little island campaigning was now possible in Luzon. ' 'We
occupy"   said Otis,   "a large  portion
of the Tsgal  country.   The insurgent
armies have suffered  great losses and
are   scattered.    The only large   foroe
wuich holds    together is   about  4,000
in Tarlao province and Northern Oam-
pagnn  there  are   scattered   foroes   in
bandB of fifty   and   five   hundred.    In
other protions of Luzoi, iu Oavite and
lint aligns   provinoe   they  could possi ���
bly assemble as many as 2000."   They
were demoralized from  recent   defeat
The most of the people   are   terrorized
by the  insurgent   soldiers, but desire
peace and Amerioan protection.   There
has been no reoent  burning uf towns.
The   trade with   ports not in onr possession, tbe   former  source of   insurgent     revenues, is   now   interdicted.
General Otis   doubted   the wisdom   of
this polioy   as  the  people in   these
ports are   now   without supplies  and
liiirehiits   are   suffering   losses.     The
courts are in successful  operation  nnder the   direction   of   able   Filipinos.
Affairs in the other   islands   are comparatively   quiet awaiting  results in
Luzon.

cases, and are now being investigated
by the Commiittee on Privileges and
Elections, a fact which in itself testifies to a considerable degree of rottenness. Tho Elgin case is the worst in
the history of Canadian electoral corruption. If the suggestion of The Co
lumbinn, tbat theso are tht product

prove the strongest mud of argumeni
against drawing party lines in this
Province. Let us hope, however, thnt

THE   SITUATION.
Remarking on the political situation
the other day, Tbe Vancouver World
said: "It is clear tbat matters will
have to drift until the Lieutenant-
Governor returns from the Atlin country, which may be any moment almost, though hardly likely before the
middle of next week. Meantime Joseph Martin ia enjoying the acknowledged salubrious climate of California, flirting with the <seal of the Golden Gate and going to church twice
every Sabbath, with a Sunday school
lesson poked in as time admits. Mr.
F. L. Carter-Cotton on tbe other hand
is engaged in less reasonable and moral
work He is up in the Kootenays, and
if Dame Rumor speaketh correctly, he
has interviewed already Messrs. Wells
and Green with some very faint degree of success. As for James Martin
be will stiok by his namesake, foi he
is no 'white shifted hobo,' but a man
of the people. Mr. Cotton is, however, it must be acknowledged, improving his time while the Hon. Joseph iB away, and it would surprise
nobody if he succeeded eventually,
though his antecedents have injured
him exceedingly in the minds of very
many who dislike his new opponent.
Tbey say that while the one shows
himself upon the surface���and the people know where to find him���the other
calculates and takes advantage of
every little inoident that goes his way.
He waited long enough tn find it,
though, outside of rumor, nothing
of an immoral charaoter has been proved against, Mr. Martin."
The World then goes on to allude to
Borne unsavory revelations respecting
Mr. Ootton a number ot years ago,
bnt too obscurely to make them intelligible. It would appear that at oue
time in his life Mr. Semlm's Finance
Minister was a terrib e fellow. It is a
curious combination altogether, is
tbis Government of ours. The World
does not tell us what It wants, but it
would seem that the disappearance of
Mr. Martin alone will not satisfy it.
Mr. Cotton must go too, and then
we presume Mr Semlin. Wo shall
have left to us only Mr. Hume and
Mr. MoKechnie, around whom we suppose The World would construct a new
Government. The part of the Bitua
tion that is known is easy to understand ; the part given ua to guesB at is
simply bewildering.
If the Lieutenant-Governor would
bmry his return from the Atlin country he would relieve an immense deal
nf public curiosity, not to sny anxiety.
Everybody is anxious to know what
is to result from the Premier's request
for Mr. Martin's resignation, and
nobody can know until the matter is
presented to His Honor's attention.
The party caucus which is called for
the 2u'tb might oi might not settle
anything, but if the Governor should
be iu time to have the matter in hand
first he will not wait for a caucuB.
Come of it what will, however,
there has been a great awakening in
Ministerial circles, which will doubtless be productive of much good. For
this the public will be chiefly indebted to The Victoria Globe, the youug
est aud most energetic of the Coast
dailies,which has made incessant warfare on that bane of British Columbia
politics, Mi. Joseph Martin.

The Premier announced a few days
ago that the Government resolution
declaring for Senate reform would be
introduced tbis session. It has been
remarked that, from the Liberal standpoint, the necessity for Senate reform
will entirely disappear in a few years,
at tbe rate changes are going on in
that body. The latest vacancy is that
caused by tbe lamented death of Senator Sandford. Other changes will occur from natural causes. Under tho
party system, the appointments are
all of a very pronounced partisan complexion, aud a few years hence we may
expect to see the Upper Chamber almost as strongly Liberal as for the past
few years it has been Conservative.
That is, if the present Government can
auooeed iu carrying the country nt
tbe next eleotion. That is, perhaps, too
large an "if" to oontemplatejwith perfect equanimity; but as the leaders
profess the greatest confidence they
are doubtless not as painfully anxious
for reform aa they pretend, It is supposed ihat the resolutions are to be introduced, not so muoh in the desire
for reform, as to create a feeliug that
will help to gain them votes in tbo
next appeal to the people. Should
thoir expectations be realised, both tbe
constitution and composition of the
Senate will be Batisfactoiy, and the
ory for reform will then lie transferred
to tbe Conservatives.
A LAW THAT MISSED FIRE,
Colorado Eight Hour Legislaticu   Has
Been Declared Unconstitutional.
Denver July 18.��� The supreme court
today unanimously decided the eight
hour law to b�� unconstitutional. The
opinion is uot yet written and will
be filed later.
The eight hour law, which was enacted at the late session of the legislature, applies to only to mines, smelterB
and mills for the reduction of ores.
The refnsal of the American Smelting
and Refining Company to pay the
samo wages for eight Pours as had
been paid for ten aud tweive hours
caused its smelters to be closed on
Juue Iii, when the new law became
operative.
This company, which is known as
the Smelter Trust, will now endeavor
to reach an agreement with its former
employes as to wages and hours of
labor, and to reopen its smelters as
soon as possible.
Officers of the Smeltermen's Union
Bay that the furnacemen, who formerly
worked twelve hourBaday, will work
but eight iu the future.

Mr. R. Roderick Robertson returned
from Rossland yesterday juBt in time

Picnics of any sort come as a pleas -
ant break in these monotonously hot
days. Yesterday a large number of
people enjoyed the St. Saviours church
outing to Bnlfour and on the 27th auother lnrgo party will undoubtedly attend the Methodist Sunday School's
annual outing to the sanie place. A
very attraotive programme of sports
has been   arranged   for  the  occasion.
The picnic of the Bt. Saviour's

tonight, but Mr. J. 0. Patenaude, an
old friend of the Arohbishop, reoeived
a telagram last evening stating that
His Grace was returning East over the
main line.
It is fenred that the Tribune's gentle hint to the gentleman who manages
the water oart arrangements is but
vain. The weather is now, set
fair" and judging from past experiences, the water oarts, like seaweed,
dries np accordingly, and will only
give out moisture again when rain
showers begin to be intermittent.
Meantime the dust on Stanley and
Baker streets is intolerable.
Mrs. Gilbert, better known in the
London theatrical world as Miss Ada

made a great hit at the Dnke of York s
theatre in London. Miss Reeve was
delighted with Nelson and regretted
tbat her professional engagements recalled her to the old oountry. She left
for England yesterday with her sister.

Ymir, July IS. ��� (Special)���Situated
at tbe bead of Hidden Creek, in a
large tarnn. are a number of propertie��
of merit and which bave tbe indications of making mines. The distance is only about eignt miles from
Ymir and if tbe result* continue as
tbey baTe heretofore there will be two
or three shipping properties from tbat
locality. Here ll situated tbe Silver
Lake Group composed of ibe Union.
Silver Lake and Programme claims,
These claims were located in the summer of 1896. Tbe ledge,wbich is composed of quartz and a galena running
very high in lead, .-an be traced down
tbe face of tbe hill for a distance of
some 700 feet and is about four feet
wide on tbe surface. Tbe ground is
covered with metal float and this is
what led tbe original locators to investigate it and stake tbe property. Tbey
have done considerable work uncovering the ledge, and besides that bave run
a tunnel which is 6.5 feet in length : the
mineral i�� evenly distributed among
the quartz and is free from tbe foot
and hanging walls which are slate,
the ledge being undoubtedly n true
fissme. At present tbe property does
not run very high in gold or silver, but
there is every encouragement to believe tbat with further progiess tbe
values will increase. An average of
about tllO can be got while picked as-
��ays will run up well. Tbe site is an
excellent one as tbe mountain rises
np nearly perpendicularly.
Opposite tuis property, that is on
the other side of tbe gulch, is tbe Big
Horn Group, which is being worked
*iy Boston capital; this promises to
tarn out very well,at present tbey bave
about three feet of solid ore wbicb will
average |2o.
To the east of tbe last mentioned
property are situated tbe Crested Butte
jjiddie & Smugler claims ; from these
asaavB taken from tbe surface will run
$20 to |2o. These claims are being
worked also with a view of making
mines.
On tbe Tamarac. a very nice strike
of ore bas been made at tbe 150 foot
level It is composed of a very dark
looking iron and i�� three feet in width :
tbe assays from this, understand, are
very satisfactory indeed. It is the
intention of the management to follow
this new strike and open up the body
more freely.
Tbe Y'mir bas all tbe   men   working
that tbey can handle: tbe mill is run
ning   steadily   and continues to  turn
out   bullion   while     tbe   concentrates
are being teamed here and sent to Kelson smelter.    Tbere is a rumor around
town tbat   tbe     company   intends  tc
send to  England   and get   some  first
class Cornish miners.
The Black Cock   i Ymir. Gold   Mines.
Limited,   have ordered   hoisting   machinery fr tbe working of their   prop
erty; the   plant   is   expected to  reach
Ymir at an early date   when it will at
once be placed in position and sinking
commenced   witb.      Tbe management
are having their road to   tbe   property
put in proper shape   so tbat it can  be
used for the handling of beavy   loads.
Tbe Fern   mine and mill will   commence running in   a few   days  time:
the new management has   taken   bold
of tbe  property,   and   it   is  expected
that the plant will now be run steadily.
���   ���   ���
The latest reports from tbe Venus
will be distinctly encouraging to mining men in Nelson. The average assays
for tbe past week from No. 1 runnel are
fl& ai.d from No. 2 tunnel |57. hi value
of gold to tbe ton.
The ledge from wbicb tbe samples in
No. 2 tunnel were taken in B inches
wide.
Dr. Doolittle will shortly put up a
stamp mill as already there is a goodly
amount of ore on tbe dump waiting
treatment. Tbeie are at present 2-i
men employed at tbe mine.
A cook bouse and dining room. [40l
24 feet) and a hunk bouse, 12-1x16 feet |
have been erected. Dr. Doolittle has
no intention of letting tbe mine drop

Wasbing'on, July IS.-The agricultural departments foreign crop report
for July states tbat the commercial authorities estimate the shortage in the
Russian wheat crop at trom S5 million
to 120 milion bushels as compared witb
last year. Tne wheat crop of France
is represented as satisfactory, but tbe
optimist estimates made earlier in the
season have been scaled by later crop
damage, tbe e-titnate now being 52
million bushels. In great Eritain
the cable rer> rts that a severe general storm did considerable damage to
a grain crop tbat otherwise would
have ranked as fair.
