The report which has oppeared iu some  of tbe Slocan papers and also iu some  American journals to the eil'ect that the  Pilot Bay smelter was to be completed out  of hand with a view to the immediate  - commencement of work is premature.

Tests on the upper  benches, which average from 30 to 150  feet in depth, have given returns as high  as $1.50 per cubic yard, hut the average  is expected to run from 25 to 35 cents to  the cubic yard.

Carter and Clarke, avIio have now  many tons of concentrates ready for  shipment.  Last week we mentioned that Messrs.  McVicor'andShawof Nova Scotia, had  purchased some claims in.the Ainsworth  district. We now learn that these claims  are the Vigilant (late Pearl) and the  Little,Mamie. The price to be paid has  not. transpired, but the buyers agree lo  forfeit $5000 if the sum is not paid within  a certain time'. "The Vigilant claim is on  ���������the North Fork of the "Woodbury creek,  and the Little Mamie is on the road up  to the No. 1, just beyond the Little Phil  and Black Diamond. The sale of these  two claims and the fact that some of the  buyers intend to return at" once and go  to work in real earnest, gives lively satisfaction in Ainsworth.  says the ditch-  McGillivary on  the Horsefly and South Forks Hydraulic  Companies' claims, are reported to be  making most satisfactory progress. The  former will be completed within a fortnight, and sufficient water is coming  down to operate two monitors, one being at present at. work. On the South  Fork claim one monitor is also at-work  and tho long length of ditch is also  stretching out. This one, however, is  too largo an undertaking for a single  season, and it will be mid-summer '95  before water will be on through il. K  wash up on both claims is expected to  bo had about the 15th July next and  hopes run high of a great showing. Some  quiet, observers mention a thousand  pounds of gold as the probable result,  but whether this be realised or not, there  is hut-little doubt that its value will be  represented by six figures in the dollars  column.

Carnot, conveying his personal sympathy with her  in her heavy bereavement. The Houses  of Lords and Commons in England have  both passed resolutions expressing horror and detestation at the assassination  of the President and extending the sympathy of Great. Britain to the French  people.  Mine. Carnot has received this autograph letter from Queen Victoria: ''Madame: Although I have not the pleasure  of knowing you personally, I cannot refrain  from writing you and attempting to express the deep and sincere sympathy I  feel for you in this terrible moment. I  cannot, find words to tell you how my  widow's heart bleeds for you and what  dismay and what horror I feel at the crime  that has robbed you of your beloved husband and the whole of France of its most  worthy aud respected President. If uu-o  iversai sympathy can in any way assuage'  your intense grief, be assured it is yours,  Madame. May God give you the strength,  courage and resignation so necessary to  eirible you to bear such misfortune. I am,  Madame, yours very sincerelv. (Signed.)  Victoria ll!"  The Silver question was brought up in the  House of Lords last Friday by tho Earl  of Levens' . attack upon the policy of  closing the Indian mints. Lord Lans-  dowiic, Viceroy, of India from 188G to 1893,  defended this policy, although lie admitted  that owing to it trade had beeu somewhat  dislocated. A- catastrophe would Lave  happened, he said,but for the Government's  action, compared with which the disturbance of trade was a mere trifle. Lord  Reay, ex-Gc.vernor of Bombay, announced  that the Government was determined not  to reopen the mints till the scheme should  have had a full trial.  The "Times" comments on the debate  thus" : Whether the measures originally  were right, or wrong, it would certainly be  a mistake to reopen the mints untill the  present policy shall have been fully tried."  As far as we can see, further trial of the  scheme can onlv bring more disaster.

At Kaslo Mayor Kane is allowing purchasers of flooded out lots to select'others  higher up in their place, deposits paid on  the lower lots to go towards paying for the  upper ones, the price of which remains as  it was when the lower ones were sold.  Mr. W. E. Drewry, of the Dominion  Survey Department, with Messrs. Irvine  and Townsend arrived in town ou Saturday last. They intended starting at once  for the country at the,back of Balfour, but  all their gear..including their tents and  blankets is hung up by the railroad strike  at Seattle \, .     :  A force of 150 men have .been at work  for some time repairing the damage to  the C. & K. line at the. Slocan crossing.  This part of the work is now near its  completion, and yesterday work was  com nienced on the approach to the Kootenay bridge. Officials are reticent as to  the probable date when traffic will be  resumed, but it is satisfactory to know  that every effort is being made to push  on the work as rapidly as possible.

It requires about two ^hundred -and fifty  thousand a year to be. spent iu dredging  and more capital will be required to complete it. Besides this , the payment of the  interest on debentures ty the end of next  year, will leave a deficit of over 8700,000.  The anarchists appear- to be taking  advantage of the murder of President  Carnot to push their schemes, and' it is  not unlikely that further outrages, may  be committed. Her-r Most, an anarchist  who fled from Germany and is now in  New York, praises the "martyr" who  killed Carnot and says the Czar's turn  will come next. Placards have been  posted throughout-.the City of Lisbon  reading "Ravachol, Vaillant and Henry  are avenged; justice has been done by  Santo's arm." " ���������  , Throughout. France the feeling against  Italians continues and riots are of frequent occurence. This feeling, is "quite  as unreasonable as are the impulses  which prompt the anarchist outrages  themselves. Many Italian workingmen  driven out. of Marseilles, Lyons and  Grenoble, are returning to Italy. In  Lyons itself. forty Italian shops have  been burnt and the police appear powerless to control the mob. Four rioters  were killed in the streets last week and  the cavalry have been called out. So  serious are affairs that many people  demand that a state of seige should be  proclaimed.  From all over the world messages  of sympathy continue to pour into.  France. The Governor-General of Canada-has cabled Lord Dufferin, British  minister at Paris, requesting him to  convey to the French ministry the  sincere sympathy of- the Canadian  government with the French people in  the;calamity which has befallen them  in the assassination of President Carnot.

Indications are that eight or ten  more will be deserted by their employes  within the next twenty-four' hours.   At  Chicago, sixteen roads are now-'  tied up  aud orders were issued  this  morning to  the employes of two more to refuse to  handle the Pullman cars.   The first road  to feel the effect  of   tlie boycott this  morning was the Santa Fe,   when four  hundred of its yardmen went out.    A  general order is  expected,   calling for a  complete' tie up of the system,    ,'ihis  morning the  union   men  persuaded the  Northwestern yardmen to quit, and only  one switchman in the entire Northwestern yards went to work.   The  man was  kicked off an _engiije_latcrbyj.be_Si"*.gjl������L  eer, who refused to"work with him. The  trouble on the Northwestern is expected  to prove far  more serious  than  at first  expected,  on  account  of  the 'decidedly;  hostile stand  taken  by  the "officials of  the Northwestern road. Four engineers,  who permitted the strikers'   committee  to use their engines last night were discharged   to-day.    This   peremptory action, it is believed,   will lead to a strike  of the engineers.   The most significant  action   taken   by   tlie   railway  officials  since the strike was ordered was that of  the   General   Managers   Association of  Chicago yesterday, when  it  was unanimously  agreed that   the   roads- would  light the boycott: to  a  finish... They decided to import new  men   to  take  the  places of all strikers.  San Fkakcisco, Cal., July 2.���������To-night  the'strikers appear to have the upper-  hand. The blockade on. the entire  Southern Pacific system is practically  completed, The western divisions of  the Santa Fe. road are in much .the same  condition. In fact, railway traffic is almost, at a standstill at all points on the  Pacific coast.; North of. Portland there  is much trouble, .the Northern Pacific  being practically tied up. All overland  trains have been effectually blocked and  the only trains running are local.. The  points of particular interest in California  are Sacramento and Los Angel os! The  Southern Pacific this morning posted  notices at the Oakland mole announcing  that until further notice no attempt will  be made to dispatch overland trains.  No United States troops' have been "  ordered as yet from Fort Sheridan',, near"  Chicago, to the scene of yesterday's'disturbances, but the  Second  regiment, I.  N. G., will go.  Employes at Evanston, Wyo., who  were.t.o sign an agreement not* to leave  the^ Union Pacific employ, reconsidered and the strike is now on in  greater force than ever-.  Many of the older trades'" unions are  endeavoring to prevent their men joining the new society, the American Railroad Union, generally ^without,.effect.  The new organisation appears to be all  powerful. "    ' o -    ���������  Everything on the Idaho division of  the Union Pacific has been tied up. That  road sent out no trains from Salt Lake  east or north, and the employes pay no  attention to the threats of discharge by  the United States court. : At Cheyenne,  Laramie, Rawlins and Green River the  men have decided to remain out. Engineers generally ou that road refuse to  strike.  The following telegram, dated St. Parii;  Juue 27th, gives the details of the beginning of what promises to be. one of ��������� the  greatest strikes ever known : The community was startled shortly before midnight by the announcement that Chairman  Doyle, of the American Railway Union  grievance committee, had just tefegraphed  every division point of the Northern Pacific  railway system, directing employes of the  company to cease work at midnight. The  strike is the direct outgrowth of the Pullman boycott, Ou Tuesday General Manager Kendnck, . of the Northern Pacific,  discharged three switching crews for re-  lusmg_tp-h a n dleJP-ul 1 ik au-coaches- -To-day-  more men were discharged, and-iate "in. the  afternoon two firemen were given their  "time" for refusing to-remain in. their  cabs and assist in the hauling of- trains  containing ' Pullman coaches. . This so  angered tlie American Railway Uniou that  .Local Branch 214 held meetings this afternoon and evening, and. resolved almost  unanimously to order a strike.., This is a  very serious matter, as the road is in the  hands of receivers. Tlic-meu were several  month's.ago restrained by order of , the  United States court from interfering in  any way with the nroperty of the "Northern  Pacific company. It is difficult to see  how the strike is to be engineered ou this  basis, and it is entirely probable that the  vast property of the company will "be- in  the hands of the United States marshals  and United =Slates troops in the next  forty-eight hours.0  A telegram from Washington- July  2nd, says the Senate Committee  ou Commerce hopes to have the River������  and Harbour bill . ready to report  at. an, early, day.

At  its upper end is the ore bin into.which the  ore is delivered, direct from the mine, only  a few yards distant, by trucks running on  ' a light tramway. The shoot at the bottom  of the ore bin leads right into the jaws of  the crusher, where the ore is broken into  fine grit. From the crusher it passes between grinding wheels of hardened steel  where it is still- further reduced. It then  reaches an, elevator aud is led into two  nearly horizontal cylindrical screens, having different meshes. Ore not sufficiently  fine to pas^  through these  is returned lo  - the crushing wheels and so goes on until it  is brought do-vri to the" required size.  The line ore meanwhile that passed through  the screens is lifted to the classifier.  This is a long wooden flume having  three sumps at equal intervals. Here the  ore is again sorted by the action of running  water into.three sizes. The largest falling  into the- first sump and so on-. These  sumps lead directly to the jigs," of which  there are three sets and in which the- ore  is still more finely divided, the coarse being again returned by an.elevator to the  ' "grinders. When this has been, removed  the remainder is a fine sand of a dirty,  blackish" color. / This is taken first to a  circular revolving table about- 12 feet in  diameter, of which the centre is elevated  - about a foot above the rim. The ore and  a stream of water are both delivered into  the centre of this, the water carrying off  the lighter parts leaving the heavier metal  behind. . After making a circuit, this  reaches a strong jet of water which sweeps  it into a receptable below. From this the  ore reaches the vanner, its final stage, from  ���������which it emerges as pure as mechanical,  means and gravitation can make it. , The  concentrator at No. 1 is capable of treating  from 15 to 20 tons of ore per diem giving  about one ton of concentrates, which run  from 500 to 800 ounces of silver, according  of course to the quality of the ore put  through.

A long screed signed by six firms who  manufacture mining machinery in Canada, has been published.    It is signed by  The Jenckes Machine Co., Ingeksoll  Rock Drill Co. op Canada, Canadian  Rand  Drill  Co.,    Miller Bros.   &  Toms, The Northern Manufacturing  Co. Ltd., and John Bertram & Sons.  The unfortunate Chinese in the United  States are slaves to the Six Companies,  and the above six companies yvould like  to make slaves of all the miners in Canada.   But it is not inteuded that they  shall have their way.    The letter signed  by these six companies is addressed to  the Canadian Mining Review.    It commences  by asking like a spoilt child, j  what they have done to be so punished.  "We have done nothing to deserve such  treatment."   The treatment complained  of being   apparently an^ arij^ie..; n.Jfo  Mining -i?ev*jfc\v,'stibwing how the miners  of Canada"are robbed.   We  intend also  ���������to'explain the same to  our readers.    If  Canada was a free  trade country, mining machinery or any  other,  could be  obtained either from Canadian manufacturers, or from America or England at  the price which it costs to  manufacture  it.   But Canada   sees  (it to impose an  import- duty of say H3:l,%  advalorem, that  is one-third of the invoice price. If therefore the machinery is purchased from  a Canadian firm, they can add one-third  of its cost to its price without fearing  outside opposition.   For instance,  if a  peice   of. machinery   is wanted ..which  ought to cost $600, the. Canadian manufacturer can charge   $800  for it,   thus  pocketing   $200   more   than   he ought.  And this $200 is dragged from the pocket  of the hard working miner of British  Columbia  to   swell   the wealth of the  millionaire   manufacturer    of   Eastern  Canada.   And in order that trade, shall  be forced into his arms,  miners have to  pay one-third more than its value for.all  machinery which they import from other-  countries.     However,   the government  has now stated that  it  will  remit this  last duty on  foreign  machinery  that is  fcot of a sort or  kind manufactured  in  Canada.   This is all very  well as far as  it goes. - But supposing some kind of  machinery, take for instance rock drills,  is better made in other countries than  in Canada, duty lias  still  to  be paid on  it, though the Canadian article may be  worthless.   Again the" interpretation of  the wording of the concession is capable  of very wide reading.   The Commissioner of Customs in his instructions to Collectors, or the individual opinions of the  Collectors  themselves   may   make   the  clause inoperative.  In any case of doubt  the Collector is sure" to take the side of  safety for himself and his Department,  a course that may result in a long correspondence   with  Ottawa,   2000   miles  away.   Mr. Mara,  in the House,  the  other day did what he could to straighten  put this   matter' and  he   deserves the  thanks of British Columbia for so doing.  It will probably be remembered in his  favour when next   the Dominion elections are held.    Miners in Eastern Canada may possibly see some benefit  to  themselves in keeping on  these duties.  We have nothing to do with them.   To  us in British Columbia the duties are  entirely abominable and exist only for  the purpose of putting dollars into the  pockets  of people we  never saw and  neverwant to see.  AMERICAN ANARCHISM.  Anarchists in Europe attempt to gain  their ends by the slaughter of innocent  people. In the United States the Amerir  can Raihvay Union seeks to carry out  its purposes by bringing ruin to railways;  and trouble and inconvenience to tens  of thousands of people who have nothing  to do with the original quarrel. There is  little difference between them. If loss of  human life results from the great strike,  the American Railway Union is just as  guilty of it as the anarchist council  which arranges the "removal" of a  prince or a president. We remember  some time ago during the Switchmen's  strike at Buffalo, which was aided by  strikers in other parts, that the United  States courts held this to be an act of  conspiracy and the instigators thereof  liable to punishment accordingly. In  this case of all the thousands and thousands of men on strike absolutely not  one has anything whatever to do with  the*quarrel between the Pullman Company and its men. They are striking  simply to bring pressure to bear to help  the latter, and if that is not conspiracy,  what is? However, we fancy our  neighbors in the States will prefer to be  governed by their legitimate government and not by the A. R. U. Will  they any longer allow a system to exist  by which all means of communication  and as a consequence all business are to  be stopped at the dictation of any unauthorized organization !J A government of a country is simply an arrangement among the people themselves for  the protection of their property and for  securing to themselves as citizens all the  advantages which they can enjoy underlie civilization of the present day. It  is plain therefore that it is the duty of  the government to at once put a stop to  these proceedings which are paralyzing  the industry of half the States. But it  is difficult to see how it is to be done  "hd it will doubtless require heroic  measures. The broad lines of the question seem to us to be plain enough.  Anv.^'nan has a right" to -ttuike any  arrangement with his employer he  chooses. He may work for anything.he  chooses, and if he is not satisfied he may  at once leave his work. And there his  rights absolutely cease. He may not by  word or deed influence his brother workmen or interfere with their freedom to  do as they like in the matter. If he  does so and organizes with others to aid  him, he is an enemy to the freedom of  his country. The American Railway  Union and its kindred institutions are  more absolute tyrants than the Czar of  Russia, and its members are no more  free men than the "slaves who used to  work under the lash in the plantations  -of-the south-or-t hew ret ches -who-travel  thousands of miles in chains across the  deserts of Siberia to pass the rest of  their lives in the darkness of its mines.  riches as great as have ever yet turned up.  The great storm that swept over the country in the early part o������ this month by causing slides on the Hanks of mountains and  changing the courses of' creeks has materially aided the prospector, and we are looking forward to hear of new finds. There  appears to be no doubt about the fact, that  any man who cares to try can do something  more than make wages at placer work, and  it speaks well for our great natural resources, that Avhen it does not pay to dig  out silver we can go over the hill aud dig  out gold. Prospectors may take encouragement from the fact, which we have learned  from reliable private sources, that tuere is  plenty of money available in London to  develop any geimine discoveries of gold  bearing rock that may be made in British  territory.  HELPING   HIM   OUT.  A great deal of amusement has been  caused by the attempt of our contemporary to put a quotation in French at  the head of its announcement of the  Dominion Day celebration. It began by  saying "O Canada beau pays nes  amours." People acquainted with the  French tongue, and particularly the  French Canadians here were at a loss to  understand the extraordinary legend.  Next week a correction was made by  changing "nes" into "rnes." Still the  phrase meant nothing. Our contemporary frequently twits us with not  being a Canadian journal, but we would  point out to it and to our readers that  what our contemporary has been attempting to quote is the first line of a  well known French Canadian patriotic  song, by Cartier, which commences "O,  Canada mon Pays des Amours." If our  contemporary cannot do better than this  we should advise it to drop the Canadian  line and try something else. However,  you cannot expect much from a journal  that cannot write its own name in plain  capital letters.  THE   FAR   EAST.  GOLD.  There appears to be unusual activity this  year in prospecting for and mining gold>  This is probably due to the lull in the silver market aud the consequent stagnation  of mining for the white metal.   From the  Yukon in the far north to the Siskyou in  southern Oregon comes news of.the prospecting parties on  every" creek where gold,  has been known to   exist.     In  our own  province of British   Columbia, - the gold  fever has undoubtedly caught on, and it is  not improbable that the increased attention given to hydraulic and quartz mining,  aided by modern facilities of travel aiid  improved machinery,  may result in  discoveries of the precious metal  that will  eclipse the wonders of! the early sixties.  Already rich finds are reported, and-companies with plenty of capital at their back  are preparing to.work systematically many  of tbe old grounds iu Cariboo and elsewhere   that    have    only    hitherto   been  scratched.   There is   hardly any part of  British Columbia in which the  precious  metal is not found.   Particularly rich are  the "Systems" of the Fraser and Columbia  Rivers, which include the greatest part of  the province, and there seems little reason  to doubt the existence of payable gold at  China Creek on Vancouver Island.   There  is hardly any country in the world so uniformly rough and mountainous as British.  Columbia, and as if not content ,;with making travel as difficult as possible, nature  hides her treasures under a dense canopy  of verdure all the year round and with an  impenetrable    mantle   of   snow   for   six  months out of the twelve.   Not one twentieth of the country is prospected, and who  shall say that there are not yet to be found  ��������� The object of the northward movement  of the Ohinese fleet is now explained.  Japan has eacptujiad .9e&a}'--tlro'aetpttsl ���������������?.<*  Corea, and has taken Li-Hi, the king  prisoner. This being against the conditions of the treaty between the two  governments, China has doubtless gone  to put matters straight. Corea has a  standing army of 5000 men, drilled by  American instructors and native officers.  Two regiments are equipped with  Remington rifles and are fairly efficient.  There is also a battery of gatlings and  another of Krupp guns. A force of 500  cavalry has been organised armed with  carbines and swords. The Japanese  have astrotigand-well-organised-army.-  All men of the age of twenty are liable  to serve in the standing army for. seven  years. After this they have to serve-in  the lamkvehr for another live years, and  when this service is passed they enter  thelaudslurm and are liable to be called  upon in times of national emergency.  The total strength of the Japanese army  on a peace footing is 2002 officers, 62.J41  non-commissioned officers aud men, -170  guns, and 8791 horses.

The morning of Monday, 2nd July,  broke at the proper time as scheduled by  the almanac, but the slumbers of the  good people of Nelson were broken at  the unusual hour of 5.30 a. in. by a salvo  of 21 shots. The hill in front of the  town echoed back the reports and altogether there was noise enough for a  royal wedding or a naval engagement.  The town presented a, gay appearance,  flags and banners of all sorts fluttered  from every pole and the streets and  houses looked cool and bright amid the  groves of young firs with which they  were   decorated.     A large number of  Eeople had come in on Saturday night  y the Nelson and Fort Sheppard line  and the S.S. Nelson brought down a  goodiv contingent from Kaslo and the  other "towns on Kootenay Lake. During  the day the balconies of the Nelson  House and the other hotels on Baker  street were filled with bevies of fair  ladies in gay attire.  The programme for the day, which  was arranged by the Nelson Athletic  Association, contained a number of  events of great interest. Six foot races,  then horse races, a base ball tournament  between clubs from Colville and Nelson,  and a tug of war between teams from  ITelson and Kaslo. We noticed on the  programme the usual statement that the  decision of the judges should be final,  but by a curious omission the names of  the'judges were not given. The other  officers were John Elliot. President:  John Houston, Vice-piesident; G. A.  Bigelow, Secretary ; G. AV. Heathcote,  Treasurer.  The sports commenced punctually at  30 a. m. and were carried out as follows :  1. Fifty yards dash, boys under lor  First prize $3, second' $1. C. Kane, 1st;  E. Blanchard, 2nd; T. Muir, AV.

' This concluded the morning's amusements and a spell for lunch was taken  until 1.30.   It was a pity that there were  ' such small entries for all the events.  AVe should have thought that in view of  "^the'Bandsbmeprizesoifeied bythecom-  mittee more competitors would be found.  In the 440 yards race great difficulty was  experienced in getting en tries'at all and  the committee very weakly reduced the  distance to somewhere,about 250 yards.  They ought to have reduced, the prizes  accordingly. In the obstacle race too  the distance was reduced by one half.  The event of the morning was the  Chinese race. At first the Celestials  were somewhat shy and no entries could  be������ got until a- little . knot ^of them  had   gathered    together..     But . when  ��������� at last four '.starters. were got to  the scratch, it was a wonder to see  them go, arms and legs all ..going at  once. The winner adopted the curious  innovation of stuffing his handkerchief  into his mouth to "stop him wind all  go." Possibly our athletes-may yet  learn a lesson from our wash boys.  In all the races except the boys, girls  and chinamen, an entrance fee was  charged of. 10 per cent, of the prize  money.   Mr. Houston acted as starter.  At 1.30 the .horse racing started, and  great interest was shown over the two  events which were to be run in heats.  At the pools/Duchess was a favorite, but  her performances in spiteof Russells ex-  . ceileht riding, disappointed her patrons.  In spite of his devilish temper, J. Beattie  found his master in M. McGuinness, who  steered, him ..to victory.- Undoubtedly  in this case the best horse won.  The events were as follows;..  - 1.    Quarter mile horse race,  open to  all, best 2 in ,3/ Four to enter, three to  start. Entrance fee $10. First prize $70,  second $30.  J.   W..Seale's   b.g.   J.   Beattie  (M.

Theslow mule race was postponed to allow of time for the base ball match,  which resolved itself into a contest between teams from Nelson and Colville,  Kaslo not sending down any players.  The teams were as follows:  COLVILLE. POSITION. NELSON*.  Reader Left Field Martin  Lee  Bight Field Farley  Phillips 1st Base Stuckey  AVhitinore 2nd Base Brown  Column 3rd Base AVilson  Gillingham Pitcher Jacobs  Atkins Catcher .Smith  Barry Centre Field Phair  Peck Short Stop Elliott  The Colville men went in first and  made 1 run. The Nelson side making  nothing in their first and second innings,  and tlie Colville men scoring nothing  their second and two in their third, the  score then stood at 3 to 1. Colville followed with two more in their fourth,  making them five to Nelson's one, the  home bovs began to pull themselves together, and taking advantage of a little  loose fielding ran up eigh*: runs altera  very creditable immings. In the fifth  innings Colville was disposed of for a  dnck.'and Nelson added seven to their  score. After this though Colvillve. made  five in their sixth innings and. Nelson  never made another run, the visitors  never managed to reach Nelson's score,  and the game resulted in a victory for  the home team with 10. to 13. In the  fourth innings AVilson injured his hand  and had to retire from the field, his place  being taken by C Murchant. The match  was not finished until 7.30.  Iu the evening at attempt was made to  arrange the tug of war, and one tug out of  the three did actually occur, resulting iu  the victory of Nelson over Kaslo. But the  proceedings got no further, whether it  was that the pullers were uucertain (it was  getting late) whether they were at the  Kaslo or atthe Nelson end of the rope or  whether the managers could not count up.  to 16, which they certainly appeared to be  trying to do. So thc-attempt was abandoned.   A few fireworks were let of.  The dance began about 9.30 and the Fire  Hall was crammed full. The greatest  enthusiaism was shown and dancing was  kept up until daylight. Of all the sports  of the day none were more successful than  tiie uance.  ' On Tuesday as the Colville men were  still kept in towu, an attempt was made to  get up a return baseball match, but the  Nelson team had broken up and it. could  not therefore be arranged. Iu the evening  the Colville men were entertained at  dinner at the Nelson House by the .baseball chib.  The Nelson band added considerably  to the attractions of the day. *tAVe have  heard very much worse music from a  very much more pretentious band.  The Great Tower bridge was formally  opened last Saturday by the Prince of  AVales in the name (if the Queen. Tens  of-thoiisands-lined-the_route-of4he_ro.y.al  procession. The ceremony took place at  noon. The Prince of AVales, by means  of an electric" button, opened the enormous bascules, built so as to allow the  loftiest vessels to pass underneath. The  thundering of guns announced the completion of the work,, and two steamers  passei through the .bridge. The bishop  of London pronounced the benediction.  Mines have been discovered under a  railway in Russia, over which the Czar  was about to:pass.    /  JOB  PRINTING  AT  THE MINER.
