In point of  number of visitors, the event fell far short of  what it should have been, and what it would  have been had the committee displayed a  little wisdom in advertising the sport. It is  noteworthy that scarcely an outside paper  went further than a bare mention of the fact  that a celebration * as being held in Nelson.  Mr. P. F. Jaynes, of Ymir^ informed me that  scarcely anyone in his   town   knew   anything  > at all of lhe lacrosse match 'ai.d the regatta,  and no doubt the same was true of other  Kootenay towns. If the sports had been  preperly advertised, instead of three or four  hundred visiiors to Nelson   last  week,  there  . would have been ten times that number. I  do not know who was responsible for this neglect, but that there was negligence there can  be ho question. The regaita part of the celebration was well conducted, and the oarsmen  who took   part   left   Nelson,  highly gratified  ; with the hospitality ^i ihe citizens, and particularly pleased with the provisions for tn��ir  comfort and entertainment innde by Mr.  Archie Main waring-Johnson. Mr. Johnson  gave generously of his time that the regatta  might be a success, and he has now the satisfaction, of knowing that so far as he was concerned the desired object wis attained. His  Worship the Mayor, the aldermen and the  citizens generally contributed liberally to-  ward the same end. It i* now too l��te to go  into lengthy details of the aquatic events, but  that everything was carried out with the  strictest attention to the requirements of good  amateur sport, the testimony of the oarsmen  is the best evidence.    The lacrosse match, an  ��  count of which follows, attracted a large  crowd to the recreali >n grounds. The visiting  lacrosse men, like the oarsmen, have returned  home highly pleased wiih their treatment  while in  Nelson.  c  x  1   Fl**.,,  if'  Ml'   -ii"  ',    i  $��**"  ��� l      p,   mi',  y  I  The Nelson lacrosse team went down before j  the Vancouver?, but not without a struggle, j  Indeed, old time enthusiasts did not hesitate  in pronouncing the match of lai-t Saturday j  one of the best and most stubbornly contested  ever witnessed in British Columbia. This  may sound a little like boasting, when it U  considered that the Dominion championship  was for a time held in this Province, but the  fact lemains that both teams played good  lacrosBe and were just about as evenly balanced as it is possible to #et two teams. I do  not believe I am doing an injustice to the  Vancouver team in claiming that in many  respects they crossed sticks with their superiors  when they met the local men, for had it not  been that the Vancouver had a phenomenon  for a goal keeper, Nelson would have scored a  dozen times or more. That the Vancouvers  returned to the Terminal city the victors they  can thank Sam Norman. His goal was attacked with all the determination and persistence  of a powerful invading army, but he stood by  his guns and brought victory when it seemed  like defeat. In the Held the Nelson men  played all around their opponents, and if they  eyed at all it was in running a little more than  there appeared to be any necessity. At times  they also showed an inclination to bunch up,  lessening their chances for more effective passing and at the *-ame lime giving the field to  the Vancouver boys unchecked. Nelson was  strong at .every point except between the lings,  but when it is considered the special qualificationsrtquhed lor a goal keeper and the fact  that so far tnis season Rutherford has-not been  called upon to do enough hard work lo give  him good practise, I luink it must be admitted  he did very well indeed. A couple of matches  like the one lai*t Saturday, and Rutherford  would give a good account of himself. As it  was, he stopped many hard shots, and the ones  that scored might not have been stopped by  even a mo e experienced goalkeeper. 1 think it  will be generally admitted that Joe Thompson  played the best game on the field. He used  his head, and got the bail every time he went  after it. That the Vancouver men realized the strength of Thompson is best eviden-  ce��J by their determination to put him out of  business, but the}* did not successfully guage  the dimensions of their opponent. Thompson  suffered more punishment than generally falls  to the lot of one man on the lacrosEe field, but  he was still playing a strong game at the  finish. Joe was the hero of the day. Bjih  A1. Jeffs and his brother Charlie sustained  their well-earned reputation of being  able to hold down their checks. Their  work counted at every stage of the game  Peard played a star game, and won every bit  of the applause with which he was greeted  from time to time. Blackwood played with a  determination to bring honor to his own  team. Taylor's playing was generally admired, and it was not his fault that Nelson  did not win in the contest. Perrier wa��  everywhere and never failed to get the ball, if  it came any place in his vicinity. Perrier  can get a place on any lacrosse team in Canada. Dan McNicholl worked hard, and  made many brilliant plays.    He got  the ball  every time he got into a scrimmage. Archibald was in good form and put up the best  game of his life, while Fox was everywhere  andse.it the ball dangerously close to the  Vancouver flags whenever he got a shot, it  would be hard to beat Jimmy Hawkins as a  field captain. He watched the ball with the  eye of an eagle and kept his men down to  business every moment on the field. As  was said before, the match was a good one, and  without prejudice it can be truthfully maintained that the score of 5 to 8 in favor of Vancouver does not indicate the relative merit of  competing teams.    It is just possible the  Nelson boys may have another chance to meet  one ofthe Coast teaeae, in which event they  should win.  I would like to know the source from  which the Nel-on correspondent of the Vancouver Province secured the information that  Nelson gathered lacrosse men from all around  British Columbia to meet the Vancouver  team. Every .man on the Nelson team belongs to the city. Rutherford is in the Customs ; Blackwood is a commission man ; Joe  Thompson, a painter ; Fox ie in the C. P..R.;  Taylor, C. P. R. land office ; Peard, Dominion  Express messenger ; Perrier, with Wm. Hunter & Co, ; MoNicholl. with J. A. Gilker ' <fc  Co.; Williams, with the navigation company ;  Al, Jeffs, tinsmith with H. Byers & Co.; Charlie Jt-ffs, expressman, and Archibald with Say-  ward ���'���<& Co. It will thus be seen that the Nelson team is a local one in every sense of the  tdrm.'.'"  There is* some question as to what the city  council should do with its* steadily accumulating surplus. I would offer the suggestion  that it be made the nucleus of a sinking fund  to defend damage suits resulting from accidents to pedestrians who are unfortunate  enough to be compelled to walk along YernW  street after dusk.

But before he reaches his home he invariably encounters two serious causes of annoyance from the thoughtlessness of others.  First, he enters the postoffice to take home  any mail the late train may have brought  him, only to find his way to his box blocked,  by young men, not merely looking for mail  but standing before their boxes reading let  tere, circulars and papers. After each young  gentleman has read everything he may turn  and beg pardon of the patient citizen, a proof  that, as a boy, someone may have told bim  the meaning of the word ���'manners,'* but  without rousing his curiosity about it.  After leaving the postoffice he walks up  the hill, his feeling af annoyance slowly abating, when he unintentionally enters a shower-  b ith. "Can it be raining ?" he wonders. Oh,  no; but some aesthetic citizen before retiring  has arranged his hose on the front lawn so as  to plentifully sprinkle his garden, the sidewalk and about half the street.  These are trifles, of course. But it is  thoughtfulness in just such trifles that constitutes good manners. In this ultra-democratic age most people have accustomed them-  sefves to observance of a certain etiquette in  public. Is it too much to ask that they extend their care toasts that miy inconvenience  other people without their intention or knowledge ?  Clara Mathes and the members of her company are rusticating in Nelson; A number of  well-known artists are on their way from New  York to join the company, and it is expected  that Mies Mathes will favor Nelson audiences  with several performances before starting out  on the road again. Afisn Mathes has pur  chased several plays that have achieved great  popularity in the East.  There is considerable work being done at the  cemetery in the way.of improvement.  It was remarked last week during the cafe-  bration that it was rather a strange thing that  a city of the size and importance of Nelson  should have to send away for musicians to fill  up a band. The fault lies in the fact that the  musicians of Nelson are rather inclined to  quarrel with one another, arid it has been a  difficult matter to hold enough men together to  keep up a band. Another cause is there is  not enough work to keep profea-donal musicians here. It is hoped to obviate this drawback in future by training a lot of young men  to  play   instruments, and   it  is   hoped   that  within a short time there will be enough new  players together, with several of the old players  to make up a good band, so that in future it  will not be necessary to import musicians from  Slocan City and other well-known musical  centres. With the capable musicians already  here and young men who are anxious to learn  ���***���*.'  to play it should not be a very difficult matter  to get a band together in a short time.  The Victoria crew were royally received on  their return to the Capital City. When the  steamer Majestic arrived from Seattle she had  a broom at her masthead, and below it ������ a fiue  new blue and white pennant of the J. B. A. A.  ���presented by ex-Minister of Mines J. F.  Hume to the victorious four���flying to the  breeze. Nearby 61earners were tooting their  whistles, and on the wharves, passed near the  harbor limits, the whistles were noisily blowing a welcome. On the wharf, at which the  steamer landed, the City band was playing the  well-known tune of Canada-���4*The Maple  Leaf*���soon followed by the rollicking notes  of "For They Are Joily Good Fellows."  Nearby stood Mayor Hay ward and the United  States Consul A. E. Smith. President Harry  Helmcken of the J. B. A. A.���who not only  wore a blue and white tie, but also a blue and  white striped flannel suit:���and grouped alongside were the old-time oarsmen and members  of the local club, and hundreds of others  gathered on the wharf and on the street above.  Hacks were there, the foremost draped abundantly in blue and white bunting. There was  a great gathering.  Something should be done to exterminate  the swarm of loafers which are fast becoming  the bane of the business man's existence.  These hobos have nothing particular to do,  and will drop in every now and then and tell  you funny little anecdotes and old chestnutty  stories. The}' engage the busiest man in Jong  conversation and spin yarns with as much deliberation as though they were on shipboard,  and time had to be killed someway. But  what is the use of describing them ; and like  the common housefly they are found everywhere.  Th�� importance of a bride's "wedding jewels" in view of Hindoo law and ��ustom is  amusingly exemplified by a case which has  juot been dweided on appeal in the High Court  in Calcutta. A young Hindoo lady, with an  interest in an estate which was being 'legally  administered during the minority of the heirs,  had been allowed 5,000 rupee* under  her father's will, for the expenses of her approaching marriage. This sum was paid to her  by the official receiver of the estate, and she  spent the greater part on such jewel* as wera  necessary, according to Hindoo rite and cuo-  tom, for the proper solemnization of her wedding ; but the  jewels, together with a sum  in  cash were unfortunately stolen from her, and  the hapless bride had to come up and ask lor  more oat of the estate.    Counsel on her behalf  feelingly urged that the young lady, who wtas..  nearly-10 years old, could not possibly be m^r*!  Iried without jewellery, that she would be con-,  demned   to  premature spinsterhood   if   she.  missed'this opportunity, and that an indelible,  blemish  would in consequence attach itself to*  the family escutcheon.    The other side, repre-.  senting the  infant male  heir ; was willing to  admit the force of all this, but expressed sarcastic hope that **there woaid   not he another  theft  between  this and   the date of the wed-'"  ding.'*    Ultimately the judge,decided to allow *  a fresh supply of jewels to be purchased out of  the estate, but having regard to what he termed A  " the obvious suggestion  that -the jewellery-  might be stolen a ain," he directed the tress--  ure to be retained in the custody of the official  ���  receiver until.the.wedding day.  If Col. Prior accepts the opinion of the interior as to his fitness for the office of Premier,  he is not likely to urge the early resignation  of Mr. .Dunsmuir. ''.:-.  Mr. Wells was in the city last week. That's  all.  Mr.; H. B.

And Jones  turned toward the young man with great apparent interest.  "The thing could be done," answered  Peters, as if Jones had cast doubt on its practicability."And it would be a  great  boon   to  fruit-growers in Kansas  and other  draughtv  parts of the country.    Latrly  I've  been wondering that more progress  is not made by inventors in the line of submarine warboats.   If  the fish idea won't  work,  why not   take  the  duck as the living prototype of a  vessel, arid  produce something whch  can dive, at least."  "Your notion is of a hoat which can dive to  escape the enemy, and then peck a hole in his  hull with its beak, eh V' remarked Jones.  " Well���yes," assented Jackson Peters.  " W����ld you have it_ web-footed, and construct it so it eould get out and waddle on the  beach in connection with land forces ?"  "You.are net"taking this thing wriously,  Jones." ���  "But I am.

" P��rh*P? you'1"�� "gbi," said Jackson, wearily.    *'|J6 doubt about it, in fact."  " I have been detected in the  neighborhood  of right  ideas," admitted   Jones.    "Possibly  you could get some marine hints from an account of my experience with   the   New  York  and Boston Leviathan Towing and Transportation Line, which I operated in the early six  ties.    You remember the line, Robinson?-*  Robinson answered "yes," without a blush.  " One night after I went tr. bed," continued  Jones, " it occurred to me  that/though  hur-  dreds of land animals are of use to man while  living, not one of the sea  animals had ever  been put to any  practical   uee till   dead.    It  seemed probable that the most useful   purpose  to which living land animals was put by man  was as draught  animals,  of which   we  may  take the horse ar d the ox as example*.    Why  were not  the animals  of   tbe   sea   used   for  draught purposes ?    I became so excited that  I lay awake all night thinking about it.    The  result was the New York  and   Boston Leviathan Towing and Transportation  Line.  " During all my life to think has been to  act, therefore you need not be surprised to  know that in a month I had left New Bedford  on a chartered whaling nteamer looking for  whales I had decided that the whale wa, the  animal most suited to my purpose. Off the  coast of Labrador we sighted a large school of  phaleo.    fortunately it wasa graded   school  I  "*w  so to say, consisting of true  whales,   Greenland whales, hump-hacked whales, fin-hacked  whaler, spermaceti whales, and so forth.    We  had considerable trouhle in  driving them   at  first, hut I rigged up a fog-horn with a reed so  it would   say  'shoo,' and   they soon  learned  what it meant, and   we  worked   them   along  down the coast hy easy stages.    A good many  of the more skittish ran   hack, and  I thought  atone time that I might have to send   a   tug  ahead wiih a herring on the end of a stick to  coxx them ; hut we finally got them   down to  Gardiner's Bay, Long  Island, and grounded  them in shallow water. *  "Ofcourse it has  always heen pelf-evident  that the whale would make a splendid driving  animal if he could he controlled.    The   most  important and hardest  thing was  clearly to  keep   him    from   diving.    A   careful   study  showed  me   that the   whale  could   not  dive  without fir*��t putting his   head   down ; therefore, all that was needed was a check-rein sufficiently strong to restrain   him   in   that   respect.    I selected a right-whale about seventy-  five feet long, which I had noticed was a good  traveller, and proceeded   to   harness   him.    I  put a hit ahout four inches in his mouth, with  ten-foot check-rings on each   end.    From this  bit I ran a hawser along his hack and around  the part of his tail where the flukes are joined  to the body.    I then put on a large collar, attached a sand-barge by four-inch wire cables,  ahd turned him toward deep water for a trial  spin.  Naturally, of course, the whale did not  readily take to harness. He reared up, rolled  over, charged ahead, struck out fiercely witn  the flukes, blew a stream of water like an  artesian well, and otherwise misbehaved. Hi.-*  efforts to dive were something startling, but  the check rein held, and he finally gave it up.  " I had wire-cable reins connected with the  wheel in the pilot-house, and stood there and  guided him, occasionally touching him up  with a bamboo fi*bing-p de. In two hours he  drove fairly well, and in a week was fully  broken, though he always remained hard-  mouthed, and was never what you might call  a lady's whale.  " I then went ahead and broke the others of  the pchool in harness.    I   found   the  Green-  lands made the best  draught animals, and I  used   them   in   towing lighters,  canal-boats,  barge*, and so forth, either driving them   single or two abreast.    The fin-backs, I soon dis-  covered, were the best driving   beasts, being  light, rangy and stylish.    I took a young and  quick-stroke fin-back for my own private use,  and used him on my yacht.    He Was  a  free  driver, a little inclined to shy at light-houpea  and promontories, but gentle as a kitten.    He  could throw spray in  the  face of  any  other  whale along the  coast.    He was   better  on a  smooth track,   like the  Sound, hut did   not  make a had showing outside, where the track  was heavy.    Ho  was   always rather  nervous  about being hitched up, and   it   usually   took  two men to get him into the shafts/'    ��� "www,  Jones paused as if there  was  no more to  tell.  "But,9* said Jackson Peters, "I fail to Ind  any notice of the New York ind Boston Leviathan Towing and Transportation Lin�� in  the classified newspaper advertisements,  either under the head of 'Shipping* or 'Transportation.' "  " You should  look under the  heading of  'Whales���coastwise.'    However, you wouldn't  find it there, either, now.  I gave up the business on account of the continued opposition of  the steamship people.    They made various ri ���  diculous charges, and got the  Society for the  Prevention of Cruelty   to   Animals   excited.  The absurd cry was set up that ray cheek -  reins were cruel, and that I was  docking the  flukes of my driving animals.    They also got  a law enacted requiring me to stop every fifty  miles and feed my whales out of a   ncse-bag  made from a balloon���-something utterly uncalled  for.    The charge of fast driving  wae  likewise made against me, and a law passed  prohibiting a''Speed of forty-five miles an hour.  Finally I gave  the whole   scheme   up   and  turned my whales loose.    I am essentially a  man of peace,  esteeming quietude above all  things.    Strife is as distasteful to me  as untruth. The whaler lapsed into barbarism, but  did  not utterly  forget their  cunning.    Two  years later, when the bark Curlew's Call tried  to take my fin back, off the coast of Greenland, he dodged the harpoon, took it  in   his  mouth   like a   tooth-pick and   punched   the  boats so full of hole* with it that they looked  like nutmeg graters."
