To tlic patriotic citizen who never
wearies in proclaiming lho advantages
of Nelson, there will be much to please
liim in the testiinonialsofpiMi.se ol'the
many who have visited the city the
past six weeks in attendance at the
court. The first clay of the court, in
liis address to the Grand Jury, Mr.
Justice Martin referred to tlie uclvan-
vantages possessed by Nelson as a
residence town and as a commercial
centre, and since then the lawyer---,
litigants and others have re-echoed
the sentiment of His Lordship. Those
gentlemen had nothing to gain by
paying this tribute to Nelson, ancl it is
quite certain that they were sincere in
their utterances. When such high
authorities are so completely carried
away with our matchless climate and
attractive surroundings, surely the
citizens themselves can be pardoned
for exalting the beauty of their town,
as thev-do on every possible occasion.
But they must not restrict themselves
to praising nature for what it-has done
for the Kootenay metropolis ; nature
never built a city on its own account;
it must have the assistance of. man,
and it is this assistance the citizens of
Nelson must freely render to fulfill the
designs of nature.
Everything considered, the Dominion Day celebration may .be said to
have been a gratifying success, although it seems to many that nearly
all the events could have been crowded
into one day. However, this is a matter of opinion. The various events
were hotly contested. And generally
speaking, it..may be conceded that the
best men won. The committees in
charge of the celebration worked hard
to-make it all that it should be, and
they must feci flattered at the considerable measure of success they achieved.
: Now that the Dominion Day celebration is oyer, those in charge of the
Industrial exhibition should at once
take up the work they have in hand.
It wasa matter of surprise last year
that'so much was accomplished under
the most adverse circumstances. That
the holding of   that  exhibition  was
"the interest it aroused in the development of the, resources of the Kootenay.
/JV*ery'few,T.eveti'.of J those living ihiNel-
son,"• realized that in the interior of the
Kootenay fruit equal, if not superior,
.to the product of any country in the
world could be raised here. When it
was demonstrated that a handful of
people-had grown such a large amount
of such excellent fruit, no doubt it inspired many others to look into tlie
fruit-growing possibilities of the country, with the results that hundreds of
small ranches have been placed in
fruit this year, and interest in the industry is increasing. This is where an
agricultural aud fruit fair is beneficial
to the country. The society is fortunate in having an energetic secretary to
look after its work. Mr. Annable takes
an iuterest in matters of this kind, and
he has the faculty of bringing to a successful issue all his' undertakings. "No
doubt he will receive the encouragement aud assistance of every citizen in
making his arrangements for the forthcoming fair.
the ball down round the-Nelson flag'*,
Paul Greyerbeihl was always on the
alert, and relieved every time tho rubber came clo3e to him. In the second
quarter, the Nelson men seemed to get
the dimensions of their opponents and
scored just as often as they pleased.
As a matter of fact they scored three
times in this quarter.
In the third quarter there was no
score. Nelson missed several good
shots on goal.
In the last quarter the play was
rough, neither side being free from
blame. Revelstoke scored a goal and
Nelson rushed in two before time was
The result of the game doc3 not altogether reflect the playing. Nelson
meu did not play in their usual form,
although they defeated Revelstoke
so badly. The Revelstoke team
has improved considerably since it
was here a year ago, but there is still
room for much improvement. y
James Hawkins was field captain for
Nelson, and Dr. McLennan officiated
most acceptably as referee.
A protest must" be entered against
the exorbitant charge of 75 cents for
admission to the recreation grounds on
Friday. There were many who cared
only to witness one match, and it was
a cold-blooded imposition to make
them pay for the three. No town ever
makes much by grafting, and it is to
be hoped for the good name of Nelson
that a cinch game like this will never
be attempted again.
Yesterday was an ideal clay for lacrosse. It was not too warm, and all
the conditions were favorable for good
lacrosse. The improvements which
have recently been made in the recreation grout* uds was also favorably commented upon by the spectators and
players alike. It is now possible to
witness every play from any point in
the field, and face-ofl's are the exception rather than the rule.
In the beginning it seemed as if the
twoHeams were fairly evenly matched,
although Revelstoke seemed to keep
It is about, time drastie measures
u*ere*takeh against lacrosse players
who are always spoiling for a fight.
Undoubtedly there sometimes seems to
be sufficient provocation for a player
to resort to fists, but hot-headed men
should never engage in the game of
lacrosse. The prize ring is the place
for pugilists, not the lacrosse field. It
is not an edifying spectacle, especially
for women, to be compelled to witness a fight. Some, arrangement
should be made whereby j>ugilists
should forever be barred from playing
the mauly game of lacrosse. Exhibitions of bad temper should no longer
play the game without fighting. One
of the best lacrosse players in this
Province was W. H. Cullin, of Victoria. He played the game foi* over a
quarter of a century, and during that
time ho was never mixed up in a fight
on a lacrosse held ancl no man. ever
carried the mark of his stick.
After one months' trial, the firm of
Fred Irvine Co., Ltd, ia thoroughly
convinced that the cash system is
alike beneficial to the firm and the
publii'. The complete abandonment
of the credit system was a change that
required considerable daring to undertake, but subsequent events have
proved the wisdom of the step. Under
tbe new arrangement, they find the
firm can sell goods as cheap as any
eastern store, and it is hoped that in
time the department houses of Toronto
will be closed completely out of this
market. Cash customers ore no longer
compelled to pay for the purchasers
who never inteud to pay for then-
goods, and consequently the firm can
afford to sell'their wares much cheaper
than under the credit system. The
abandonment of the credit system by
every merchant in Nelson would be a
good thing for tlie city.
The release of T. 11. Hall under suspended sentence by Chief Justice
Hun ter will meet with hearty cixlors
ation by all who have had business
transactions with Mr. Hail. For years
the accused was- a highly-respected
business man of Vieti r'u* but through
a change in tie tariff he was ruined.
Worry over business troubles brought
about a serious illness—inflammation'
of the nerves—aud his friend.1- noted
with sorrow that his will power was
greatly impaired. He was confined in
a dark room for three months out of
tbe six months' duration of his illness,
and was never completly restored to
health. On account of his high standing iu the community, he was given
the position of collector of taxes by the
Government, and when the auditor
came to examine his accounts, in a
little ovsr six mouths after hisappoint-
ment, it was found that he was short
to the extent of S4.533.28. As might
be expected from a man suffering-is he
had for a year or so, no attempt was
made to conceal the defalcation ; indeed at no time did he seem to realize
the seriousness of his position. This is
a characteristic of men suffering from
this peculiar form of djscase. Had his
relatives, who are wealthy, been aware
of his trouble, they doubtless would
have made good the money, and had
him placed in a sanitarium for treatment. As it was. when the defalcation
was made known, they hastened to restore the shortage ancl the Government did not lose a cent. Moreover,
no difficulty was placed in the way of
the officers "of-the crown in the case, and
as all the facts pointed to the irresponsibility of the accused at the time the
offense was committed, the Chief Justice, with tho concurrence of the crown,
dealt with his case under the provisions of section 971, sub-section 2. The
accused entered into a recognizance for
§2,000 with two securities of $1,000 each,
for his appearance when called upon
and for his good behavior in the meantime. He must also pay the costs of
the prosecution. It is hoped by Mr.
Hall's friends, and he has many of
them in this Province; that a
season of rest and recreation, mayjrenijL
pletely restoreHiis health.
Twenty-five years ago the city of
Leadville sprang into existence ; not
from the clouds, but in the clouds.
In many ways it has been the most remarkable mining camp the world bas
ever known. Beginning as the home
of " carbonates," it has passed through
various stages of development and
has, from a silver-lead producer, became pan-metallic, and has added gold
iron, zinc, copper and bismuth to its
output. Jn 1879 there were marketed
from the Leadville district 322,483
tons of ore, valued at §11,447,040." In
1903 the output was 720,542 tons of
ore, whieh the United States mint
gives a valuation of over $12,000,000.
During the interim 1S79-1903, inclusive, Leadvillcs lowest production
was iu the year 1896 (the strike year),
when it was reduced to $0,903,050, and
its highest was in 18S2, when it totaled
§17,181,853. At no time in the history,
of Leadvilie has the future looked
brighter from a mining standpoint
than now. Harmony between the
operator and the miner prevails in that
district. They paid the price for common sense in 1S90 and the lesson
learned was a lasting one.

Then, there is a story about Thomas
Thorp, who died leaving his fortune to
a poor relative, on condition that a
headstone with the name of the said
Thomas Thorp and a ver.-e of poetry

to break away Irom the infHence of

and the people, and it was with that
object that the archbishop was now
working. In these days of material

progress the people had come to the
view tliat the priesthood was not keeping pace with them. French Canadian priests might not be geniuses, he
said, but were devoted and loyal to
their people. He made a strong appeal
for more confidence and harmony.
The B. C. Mining Exchange, published at Vancouver, is doing a splendid
work for the mining industry of British Columbia. Each issue is a complete review of everything in mining
circles for the month, and no district
is overlooked. Incidentally, it may be*
mentioned that the Mining Exchange
seems to have a friendly -feeling
towards Nelson, if the amount of free
advertising it gives this city is lo be accepted as an evidence of its goodwill.'
Among the visitors to Nelson dur-
dtiring the celebration was Vernon
Thomson. Mr. Thomson has been engaged in ranching in the North west for
the past two years, but makes it a point
to visit Nelson for the Dominion Day
E. V. Bodweil, K. C, who has been
in Nelson'during the past six', weeks,
left for home yesterday morning. He
has been-so long absent from Victoria that it is doubtful if hewill know
the town when he gets baclc home.
A Portugese gentleman, writing to
La Revue, Paris, says that the first

Mikado's empire was visited by three
Portugese merchants, who sailed from
one of the small towns in Cochin
China along the Chinese coast and
were wrecked during .a storm on the
shore of Southern Japan. Eightyears
later, the Spanish Jesuit, St. Francis
Xavicr, under the, protection of the
Portugese, began the work of Chris-
tianization of Japan. The writer then
traces the history of the relations between Europe and Japan up to 1009,
when the Portugese were expelled
through the intrigues, he declares, of
the Dutch merchants.
Richards & Priugle's minstrels are
really an excellent organization. This
organization has cast aside many of
the played out features of the minstrel
stage, and substituted therefor new and
up-to-date specialties. From a musica
point of view, these minstrels are par-
ticnlarly attractive, the band being one
of the best that ever visited Nelson.
Dr. John Kerr, in a new book of
"Memoirs," recalls a number of humorous Scotch stories. For example,
there is the story of the "argumen-
tatively tipsy" Scot, who, calling on

he was sober, replied ;  " Man, minis-
Tobacco-planting was commenced on
the Smith-Holnian ranch, Kelowna,
last week. This is an industry that is
likely to be of considerable importance
in the near future, as the quality of

equal to the best imported Havana,
the climate being particularly suited
for the production of that kind of tobacco.

EDITORIAL COMMENT.  ���  The people* of Canada are being informed in scare-  fteaded columns by the Liberal pfess that at the close  of a speech intended as a personal' vindication the  premier received a demonstration from the members  frf bis party in ibe House such as is seldom seen or  heard ttaefe.  What does Sir Wilfrid's explanation amount to?  That the word "foreigner" was a slip of the tongue  find that as soon as possible lie substituted  "stranger,"  That will hardly do. A slip of the tongue may betray a man into saying what he thinks but intends  not to aay, but it would require a psychological and  physiological miracle to make a man's tongue say  what a man's mind bas never thought. Sir Wilfrid  has certainly betrayed his own thought and feeling;  - Uitlch as he may deplore the accident he cannot recall  the word. And just at present it is not the impudence ofthe spoken word that hae startled Canadians  -as the revelation tbat the leader of apolitical party  ���which numbers hundreds of thousands of English-  Speaking   Canadians, regards   the   British   race  as  h " foreigners'' to bim.  -Nor are we much further disturbed by the servile  cheers of English-speaking Literal members. The  passing of the much modified railway bill without  even an inquiry of the government benches proved  that the Liberalmembers have abdicated political independence if not also mental independence. .  We might suggest that if the only duti s of Liberal  members of parliament are to vote as they are told  and cheer when they are told ; street-arabs could be  hired for the purpose at less than fifteen-hundred dol-  . lars a year plus mileage.

Judging by the interest bsin-j taken,in fruit-growing, it will be only a short time before the interior of  British Columbia will raise enough apples, plums and  berries to supply the Northwest.  The American Museum of Natural History has  Adopted  what is considered-the most advanced and  artistic method of reproducing wild animal life for exhibition purposes so far devised.      In  fact   as  the  Scientific American states, it is almost  revolutionary  in  its way, since it involved a radical departure from  the old  stereotyped methods of taxidermy.    In the  new process the animal's body is modeled entirely_in  clay, and is given the same careful treatment as would  be expended by a sculptor on fashioning a humaa face  or  figure.     The artist,   of course,   depends   upon  *   observation and study of the animal to be reproduced.  The sculptor builds up his subject with clay and then  the skin is fastened over the frame, giving the animal  a  life-like  appearance.     The "American Museum of  Natural History bas obtained a valuable collection of  skins from British Columbia, many of them species  hitherto unknown, and when mounted  in the way  described   they will he placed in   the new Mammal  Hall.

This being the case, it would be indeed  wonderful if he were "defended" by the Nelson  Tribune. In any event, Mr. Green should not  mourn over the defection of John Houston's hybrid-  mongrel sheet.

C  F~F^  P. O. BOX 223  After 36 3*ears of unpardonable neglect, the people  of Canada are likely to raise a monument to one of  their most distinguished orators and statesmen���the  late Hon. Thomas D'Arcy McGee. Although he  was--born in '.Ireland, Canadians proudly claim  Thomas D'Arcy McGee as one of themselves. No  one has yet dared to refer to him as a "foreigner."  The Dominion of Canada has passed Ihe 37th milestone in its existence as a confederation. The Confederation is no longer an experiment, but stands as  a practical demonstration of the wisdom of the great  Canadian statesmen who breathed into its nostrils tl.e  breath of national life. Foremost amongst these,  was the greatest of all Colonial statesmen, and the  peer of any man in th-; Empire, the late lamented  Right Hon. Sir John A. Macdonald.  Hon. Charles Wilson's denial that lie was about to  -rcsign-from-the-Governmentrw'as entirely super Jluous.  The man who originated that report is never truthful.  His paper lies for business reasons, and it lies for the  mere lust of lying. Here in Nelson, neither the Tri:  bune nor its editor have acquired any fame to speak  of for the amount of time they have frittered away in  disseminating the truth. '"I suppose I may credit  the authorship of lhat report to my friend Mr. Houston," said Mr Wilson to a Vancouver Province reporter, " for he doubtless wishes that I would resign.  But you may say that when I contemplate retiring I  will notify my constituents before I have anything to  say to an}-one else."  IE. FERGUSON & CO.]  ! NELSON,'B.

An exchange  calls attention to the importance of the intelligence  department to the Japanese in tbe present conflict  with Russia. . "Minute care," it says,''Avas exercised by the Japanese entering upon the war. It is  illustrated by the statement that they had excellent  maps of the battlefield of Vafaugow. They probably  have equally good maps of every possible battlefield  in Manchuria and Corea. They know Manchuria  better than Canadian soldiers would know large portions of older Ontario in the event of an invasion "  The cost of securing these data vanishes when compared with the immense value of them to the Japanese  in contending with a power vastly greater in number  and financial resources.  .
