T.ftrgast Crowds Since 1897—iports Keenly Contested ansl Kverytlslssg raaaea
Off Without ra Ultch-Exoltlnt Drilling; Contest.
Slocan may well feel proud of her
celebration of Dominion day, as it
was tho most succes ful affair that
has ever taken place hero. A larger
crowd of outsiders was here than has
risited the place since 1897. Local
celebrations in the past vear or so
had been more er less spoiled by contention, bnt this time not a hitch occurred and tho visitors went away
perfectly satisfied with thc treatment
accorded them. Another wise act
was the cutting out of general ball
guraes, which have never been a
complete success.
Rain fell heavily for awhile in the
morning, stopping the juuior baseball
game, and a slight shower fell in the
afternoon, but the weather generally
favored the celebration. Of the decorations, those at the depot, Arlington and thc hospital easily toolc a
foremost place and were much admired. Another thing that helped
on the jubilation was the capital
music put up by tho combined bands
of New Denver and Slocan, the boys
being attired in natty white coats,
adorned witli the national colors.
Nelson sent up quite a number of
visitors, but the bulk of the crowds
came from Sandon, New Denver and
Silverton, the inhabitants of the latter place emigrating to a man.
Of the sports it may be said that
they were keenly contested and excited much interest. The fat nun's
race and the lady's bicycle race were
the only two events not filled, all the
others having a full number of contestants. Tlie committee carriod out
tilth* arrangement**, well, enabling
the spectators to view each event
w thorn crowding. Every item pass
ril off like clockwork, thanks to tin
starter Nap Ecinillurd, crier Fred
Carlisle, and Jttrtffte IV. Kortn, W.
T Shatford, ami E. Ilrnwuinir. 'lhe
junicr baseball nines of New Denver
and Blocan were unfortunate, as the
rain forced them to stop play big at
the second innings, tho local team
being then strong in the lead. In
tho afternoon thc Denver boys pulled up. and when the game was called in the seventh innings they were
only one run behind, the score staml-
Ing 10 to i) in favor of Sloean. In the
boys' hundred yard dash, Rusty
Uobertson barely won by a nose from
Delaney of New Denver. The men's
100 yard spurt got five starters,
Gusty, of Sandon, doing thc trick.
All tlie races gave muuli satisfaction.
But the keenest interest of all was
oxciU'd by the drilling contest,
though but three teams entered.
Tliey bailed from tlie Ottawa,Fisher
.Maiden and Ailington. For this
uveut the committee raped off a big
space, enabling everyone to view the
contest. John Regan, of the L'ist
Chance; VV. Hudson, of the Arlington, and J. Hamclln, of the Speculator were the judges, and found their
job a sinecure, so well were the preliminary arrangementi carried oat.
A big lump of money changed hands
over the contest, the Arlington team
having the lead in the betting. The
rod; was the hardest kind of granite,
as the length of the holes drilled will
testify. The Ottawa boys wer • very
cifectivc with a short, snappy stroke,
and but for the breaking of a number
of their steel would have won handi
ly. The Silverton lads changed
steel wilh marked precision and out
a neat hole, and it was thought they
would prove the winners. Heavy
and long strokes characterized thc
Arlington's striking, but they barely
won by a fraction. Between the
three holes there was only an inch
diiference, showing how close was
the contest. Tlie sympathy of the
crowd was with tho Ottawa boys, as
they had put up a plucky light under
great adverse difficulties. The steel
of the other teams took thc temper
much better. It was the first drilling
contest seen here and it proved a captivating novelty for the populace, as
well as a strong draw ing card for the
Tho horse racing, bicycle racing
and tug of-war were .srll curried out
with zest and gave pleasure to all,
The day's sports wound up with a
big bal in the Bohotuberg hall, the
band boys scoring a success. The
transportation arrangement! on the
trains and boat were good, enabling
the up lake folk to see the conclusion
of tho programme before having,

Judgment has been given by the
full court of the province in the caso
of McNaught vs Van Norman et al,
in favor ofthe former, with costs. It
was an interpleader action, brought
by Sheriff Tuck and tried beforo Mr.
Justice Irving nt Nelson. The facts
of tho case, were that thc plaintiff
McNaught owned a three-quarters
interest in the Hampton group of
claims, on Springer creek. J. McKinnon owned tiie other quarter,and
the defendants seized the said interest under execution against Melvin
non in March, l'JOl, The sheriff
maintained tho seizure against the
property, bnt did not attempt to sell
until June following. He was then
stopped by Mr. McNaught, who
claimed that as McKinnon had allowed his free miner's certificate to lapse
on the 1st of June, under section 8 of
of the Mineral Act the interest held
by liiin passed tc McNaught,he being
co-owner with McKinnon. The defendants and the -sheriff contended
that the seizure and a special miners'
license kept the interest alive, and
did not allow it to pass on to McNaught, and that section 9 of the
Mineral Act did not bear on such a
Mr. Justice Irving gave judgment
against the defendant! and for McNaught, maintaining that the lapsing of tiie free minor's certificate of
McKinnon defeated the sheriff's seizure. From this judgment the defen
dint appealed to the lull court, and
the caso was rgued in April, S. S.
Tavlor appearing for the plaintiff
McNaught, and Sir Charles Tupper
and John Billot for the defendants.
Judgment was reserved at that time
and lias now been handed down.

Slocan can always be depended on
for some peculiar brand of excitement at any and at all times. This
time it was caused by a bear. Monday morning an adult bruin, with a
brown pelt, ventured into the garden
of Mrs, D. Kennedy, in West Slocan,
in search of a tasty breakfHSt. He
raised a hen from its nest and started
in on an egg omelette. Miss Clough,
who lives alongside, spied his bear-
ship and sougs't to aid his digestion
by sundry forceful remarks from a

Another discovery -was that of the
two men belonging to the cbalr In
which Molly was carried off. They
were found ln one of the low taverns
by tbe riverside drinking. One of them
was already too far gone to speak;
the otber, with a stronger head, was
able to give Information, which be was
quite ready to do. A gentleman, be
said, bad engaged tbe cbalr and bad
given tbem a guinea to drink If they
would suffer blm to find his own chairmen. Bis description of tbe gentleman corresponded wltb tbat already
furnished. He spoke of a tall gentleman wltb a (lushed face and rough
manner of speech. He knew notblng
more except that two men, strangers
to himself, bad taken tbe cbalr and
carried It off.
"Oentlemen," said his lordship
•there can be, I fear, no doubt The
abduction of Miss Molly has been designed and attempted by Mr. Rising.
Fortunately be cannot bave gone very
far. It remains for us to Und tbe road
wblcb be bas taken."
Thev fell to considering tbe various
roads which lead out of the tow 1.
There Is the highroad to Ely Cambridge and London, hut to carry a
chair wltb an unwilling lady In It on
the highroad, frequented by night as
well as by day with travelers of all
kinds and strings of pack horses, would
be ridiculous. There was the road
which led to the villages on the e.pst
side of tbe Wash. There was also the
road to Swaffham and Norwich.
"1 am of opinion," said one of the
gentlemen, "that he has fixed on some
lonely place not far from Lynn where
he can make her prisoner until she
complies with his purpose and consents to marry him."
Captain Crowle shook his head. "She
would never consent," he said. "My
girl Is almost as strong as any man
and quite as resolute. There will be
murder If this villain attempts violence."
Just then tbe landlady of the Crown
threw open tbe door and burst In. "Oh,
gentlemen, gentlemen," she cried, "I
have found out where they are gone!
Hide after tbem! Ride after tbem,
quick, before worse mischief la done. 1
have ordered all tbe horses In the stables to be saddled. There are eight,
Qnick, gentlemen! Ride after them!"
"Quick, quick!" said his lordship.
"Where are they? Where are they?"
The captain sprang up.
"They are on their way.   They cannot bo there yet."
"But where?   Where?"
"Mr. Rising ordered a poBt chaise to
wait for him at 10 o'clock."
"He left the gardens," said his lordship, "about tbat time.   Go on."
"He ordered It at the Duke's Head.
The postboy told the hostler his orders.
He was to wait for Mr. Rising at the
Traveler's Rest on the way to Woot-
"The Traveler's Rest? What kind of
place Is that?".
"It Is a bad place, my lord—a villainous place on a lonely road up and
down which there Is little traveling. It
Is a resort of peddlers, tinkers nnd the
like, gypsies, vagabonds, footpads and
rogues. It Is no place for a young lady."
"It Is not, Indeed," said one of the
"Gentlemen," tbe landlady repeated,
"ride after blml   Ride after them! Oh,
the sweet Miss Molly!"
"Are tbe horses ready?"
"Tbey will be ready In a minute."
"Gentlemen,   tbere   are,   you   hear,
eight horses.   Captain Crowle will take
one.   I will take another.   The remaining six are st your disposal.    I shall
feel honored If you will accompany me,
but on one condition, If you will allow
me to make a condition.   The man will
fight, I suppose?"
"Tom Rising," ono of tbem replied,
"would fight the devil."
"Ons could desire nothing better.
The condition Is that when we overtake Mr. Rising you will Icavo him to
me.  That Is understood V
"My lord, we cannot, by your leave,
allow your valuable life to be at the
hazard of a duel with a man both desperate and reckless."
"I shall take care of myself, I assure
you. Meantime, If I fall, I nnme Colonel f.anyon to succeed me. nnd after
blm. should he, too. unhappily fall,
you will yourselves name bis successor.
Gentlemen, we must rescue the lady,
nnd we must punish tbe abductor. I
hear tbe horses.  Come."
HE postboy, foreseeing
eveuts which might
require a clear stage,
warily drew his chaise
off the road, which
bere widened Into a
small area trodden Oat
by many feet. Into the
grassy field at tbe side, and stood at
the horses' bends In readiness.
Tho men on tbe ladder, who were
pulling away at the thatch with zeal,
stopped tbelr work. "What's that,
George?" asked ono. "Seems like
horses. They're coming after the young
lady likely." So be slid down the ladder, followed by the other, and they
ran round to tbe front, seizing their
poles In case of need. At elections nnd
on tbe occasion of a street light the
chairman's pole bns often proved a
very efficient weapon. Handled with
dexterity, It Is like a quarter stnff. but
heavier, and will not only stun n man,
but will bralu blm or break arm, leg
or ribs for blm.
"Kor my part." Molly told me. "I
saw them suddenly desist from I heir
work, though In a few minutes the
hole In the thatch would have been
large enough to admit of n man's pass
Ing through. I wns walling within
knire In band. Do you think I would
have suffered one of those fellows m
lay band upon me? Well. In the mhlsi
of their work they stopp.'d. they listen
ed, and they stepped down the ladder
Wbat did tbls me.-in? There was no
window to the loft except a single
frame of glass with half a dozen small
diamond shaped panes, too high up in
serve any purpose except to admit a
little light I put my head through the
hole In the thatch, and 1 heard -linng
ine my Joy—the clatter of horses' hoofs-
and tbe voices at the horsemen. Anil
theu I knew and wns quite certain thai
my rescue bad arrived. Mack,' I salt!
to myself, 'has found out the way taken
by this villain and Is riding after
Alasl I wbo should bave been riding
In tbe front of all was at tbat moment
unconsciously sleeping In my bunk
aboard tbe Lady of Lynn.
"I thought tbat at sucb a moment
Mr. Rising would be wholly occupied
wltb defending himself.    I therefore
withdrew the bonrds from tbe top of
the stair and looked down.    No one
was In the room below that I could
see.    1 cautiously descended.    In  the
corner of tbe settle by the fireplace
tbere was tbe old woman of tbe house
" They are coming after you. missy,'
she said.    "I ktii'w now It would end.
I warned blm.   I told blm that everything was against It.   I read his luck
by the cards and by the magpies and
by   the  swallows.    Everything   was
against It.   They are coming.   Hark!
They.are very close now.   And they
will kill him.'
"I ran to the open door. Mr. Rising
was In the middle of the road, without
his hat, his sword In his band; behind
him.stood bis chairmen. He was pot
going to give me up without a fight.
The postboy had drawn the chaise Into
the field, and the sedan chair was
standing beside it. And down the
road, only a little way off, I saw In the
growing light of daybreak Lord Fyllngdale leading, the captain beside
blm and balf a dozen gentlemen following, all on horseback.
"'There she Is! There Is Molly!'
cried the captain. "What cheer, lass?
What cheer?'
"Lord Fyllngdale held up his hand.
The whole party drew rein and halted.
Then their leader dismounted. They
were now nbout 20 yards from the
men. He threw his reins to the nearest of the little troop. 'Gentlemen,'
he said, 'we must proceed witb this
business without hurry or bluster or
threats. Mr. Rising will perhaps
threaten and bluster. We are here to
rescue a lady and to punish a villain.
Let both be done without appearance
of wrath or reveng*e. Captain Crowle,
do not dismount, I entreat you, until
the conclusion of the next act. Molly
Is, as you see, apparently safe and unhurt.'
"Tbey obeyed.
" 'I shall uow measure swords with
the young gentleman who thinks that
be can carry off heiresses with Impunity. I would advise you to advance
a little closer to the house. He must
understand that punishment awaits
him, If not from me, then from some
other of this company.'
" 'Look at Tom,' said one of them.
*nis blood Is up. He Is now all for
fighting. He means mischief. If ever
he has meant mischief. I remember nt
Swaffham when he fought the young
squire of neadlngley. That was about
a girl, too—a mere, worthless drab of
a tavern servant. Tom broke down bis
man's guard and ran him through In
half a minute. I wish we were well
out of this Job.'
"Tom stood In the road, as I have
said, his sword In hand, his hat lying
on the ground before him. If flaming
cheeks and eyes as fiery as those of a
bull brought to bay mean mischief,
tben Tom's Intention was murderous.
'"To thwart Tom In anything,' the
gentleman went on, Ms dangerous; but
to take away bis girl—and such a girl—
to rob him of that great fortune Just at
the moment of success, would madden
tbo mildest of men. He looks like n

the trick, knows full woll tho danger

Minneapolis, the second day of the

caution ami was hurled from the
track to the soft sawdust beneath, a
distance of over thirty feet. Fortunately he escaped serious injury, and
will be in good condition to appear
at Winnipeg's big fair. To the ordinary  observer,   the   "Loop  the  Loop"
performance looks like a man riding
head down on a bicycle track liko a

Suffered    Greatly For    Five
From    Rheumatism—Doctors
Many    Medicines    Failed to
Him,  Dut He Got the Right Medl
cine at Last.
From the Echo, Dominion City, Man.
Recently while limiting with a re-
porter of the Echo, Mr. Orlin l'ost,
a well-known farmer of Gruinidge,
Man., gave the following story of
five years of great suffering from that
most painful of diseases—rheumatism.
Mr. l'ost said:—"There are few people, unless they have been similarly
afllicted, can understand how much 1
■uffercd during those live years from
tho pains of rheumatism. Ths*y wore
times when I was wholly unable to
do any work, and to merely attempt
to move my limits caused the greatest agony. I tried several doctors
but they Seemed quite unable to cure
me. Then I tried several advertised
medicines, that were highly recommended for this trouble, but ths*y also failesl to bring the longed for res-
lease from pain. As these medicines
failesl me one after thu other. 1 began to look upon the trouble as incurable, ansl was almost in despair.
At this time some friends asked me
why I disl not try Dr. Williams'
I'ink l'ills, nntl 1 decided to make at
least one more effort to obtain a cure.
I knew my case was not only a severe
one, but from the failure of other
medicines a stubborn one. anil 1 de-
termined that the pills should have a
fair trial, so I bought a do/en boxes
I took them according to directions,
anil before they were gone there was
a great Improvement In my condition
but I was not fully cured.   I then got
another half dozen boxes, and by the
time the third of them were emptied
1 hail not an ache or a' pain left mui
was able to tlo a good hard slay's
work without fstsling uny of the torture that, had for live years minis* my
life miserable. You muy say for me
that I do not think then is any
meslicine in the world s'uti wjual Ur.
Willinms' I'ink Fills as a cure for
rheumatism, lt is several years since
my euro was effected, and as I have
never since hnd the least sign of the
trouble, I think 1 run speak with authority.
When such severe case* as this aro
entirely cured It is not surprising
thnt Dr. Williams' I'ink Fills have
mado such a great reputation
throughout the world for the cure of
other diseases duo to poor or watery
blood.    1'aralysis,    Ht.  Vitus' diinco,
anaemia, consumption, dyspepsia,
palpitation of tho heart, nervous
Headache, female ailments and neuralgia are among the olher troubles
they havo cured in thoiiHitnils of
cases. Only tho genuino pill will

A Strong Letter Written With the
Noble Purpose of Trying to Benefit Someone Else.
St. Ilippolyte, Que., June 23.—
(Special)—Mr. L. A. Poquin of this
village bus written for publication
the following letter. In it he speaks
for both himself and his wife. The
letter reads :
"After much suffering I had become
unable tss work. I had Kidney
Trouble which gave me great pain.
"My wife had used a box of Dodd's
Kidney, Pills for a similar __trouble
some time before, anil ns ths.y hud
completely restored her to gootl
health I made up my mind to take a
treatment myself.
"I was not disappointed, and lean
now suy thut I hnve tried and proved
Dodd's Kidney l'ills to be tbe greatest medicine in the world.
"We are now both quite well untl
able to do our work as well us ever.
"We have «found Dodd's Kidney
l'ills to be a remedy, which suves us
the pains und trouble which we often
sec in others, -who are languishing
und incapable of attending to their
"We keep Dodd's Kidney Pills constantly on hand, antl use them occasionally if we feel tho slightest indisposition. We have used altogether
between us six boxes.
"Perhaps I should exjVjuin why I
write this letter. It is because I feel
there may be many others who huve
not heard of Dodd's Kidney l'ills, or
who having heard, huve not given
them a trial, nnd to such I would
soy 'Give Dodd's Kidney Pills a fair
trial and you will agree with my wife
and myself that there is not any
other such meslicine to be had." '
What Dodd's Kidney Pills have
done for Mr. Paquin and his good
wife they will do for any man or woman who suffers from Kidney Disease
in any form.

Debs, thc great American labor and

appreciative. Mr. Debs is the finest
speaker yet heard here, his delivery
being gaod, enunciation e'ear and
distinct, and his arguments to the
point and most effective. His address dealt with the situation resulting from the operation of the trusts,
presenting the contrast ol the workingman today and 50 years back.
Socialism, he claimed, was the one
true solution of tho modern social
and economic dilemma, and it was
bound to prevail. Mr. Debs made n
magnificent appeal to workingnien
to become unionized, in improve their
time by judicious reading,and to live
honorable, upright lives. His advice
was to live tot* the benefaction of the
human family, to avoid strife and
discord, and to act like men. The
speaker strongly urged the use of tlio
ballot to freo the laboring closes
of the trammels of thc corporations,
and to use It on every possible opportunity. The address was well calculated to do un immense amount of
Iroa lloraa Sattlea Up.
