NUMBEE 48fJS|  ales of the  own  Now that it has been determined to I ton minutes' exercise'every day trill  to celebrate Dominion Day, it remains reduce the flesh in a wonderfully short  ���with the citizens to do every thing in  their power to make the event worthy  of the Kootenay metropolis. Nelson is  favorably situated for holiday-making,  and so well established is this fact, that  the residents in neighboring towns  look forward to a celebration here with,  real pleasure. The citizens of Nelson  also have established a credit for hospitality wieh outside towns, and no  doubt they will do everything in their  power to maintain their reputation on  this occasion. Just what form the  celebration will take this year has not  yet been decided upon. Many believe  that it would be well to add a few new  features ; visitors get tired of seeing the  the same thing every year.  The gasoline launches recently imported from Carleton Place, Ont., by  Geo. Hunter, Geo. Thurman, J. A,  Gilker, Carl Larson and L. P. Nelson,  have now been thoroughly tested, and  after two weeks' experimenting the  owners unreservedly express their satisfaction with their boats. In every respect they fulfill the promises made  by the Gillies estate firm, which  built them. In workmanship they  cannot very well be excelled, being  fitted up and designed with due  attention to comfort and convenience.  Added to this they are easily handled  and make good time. It is particularly gratifying to bear testimony to  the good qualities of the launches'man-  ufacturecl by this firm from the fact  that they a��e a Canadian product in  every regard. The owners emphasized  their patriotism by patronizing a Canadian firm, and it is pleasing to note  that they have received exactly what  they paid their money for.  time. Stand erect, with the head and  chin well up, and rise upon the toes at  each moment, then expelling it forcibly  and completely, coming down upon  the heels at the same time. Another  good breathing exercise is to draw in a  full, deep breath. Retain the breath  while counting fiftetfli, then slowly expel it. Sometimes stout women move  the arms gracefully but the body has  an utter lack of liberty and free motion  or suppleness. Drawing her corsets  tighter never did make a stout woman  less stout in appearance. The first care  is not to lace too tightly ; the second is  to banish all ideas of being stout from  your mind, and let the muscles haveas  free play as possible. All women ean  learn to use their bodies gracefullj*, even  if there is a predisposition to stoutness.  Stout women are acknowledged to be  the lightest dancers, and there is no  reason why they should not be graceful  in pose and motion. Ifa woman draws  her breath freely from the bottom of  her lungs, this diminishes the effect of  her size immediately by doing away  vvith that ready-to-burst iook that is  generally associated with stoutness.  That is the look that must be avoided,  even if the waist measures an inch or  so more, and the bust and shoulders  gain alittle.

The best time for  this is before dressing in the morning  aud after undressing at night.   Five or  The principal interest in the Crow's  Nest damage suits, before Mr. Justice  Martin this week, was the presentation  of expert testimony to show the cause  of the explosion. Wm. Blakemore,  the expert witness for the prosecution,  expressed his belief in the coal dust  theory. He was- cross-examined- at  length by JE. V. Bodweil, K. C, with  the object of disproving the coal dust  theory and showing that the disaster  resulted from causes beyond���the control of the defendant company. The  expert had a strenuous time of it with  Mr. Bodweil, and didn't even get time  to punctuate his answers.  Just what would have happened had  ltr._Bodwell_decided_to, reiterate  the  "insinuation"   to Mr. Taylor on the  street, to which the latter asserted "an  answer would be promptly forthcoming,'' was the subject of an animated  discussion amongst a few friend last  evening.   Some who remembered the  Victoria K. C.'s prowess on the lacrosse  field and as an all-round athlete, inclined to the belief that he would be  able to hold down his "check" in this  case, while others argued tnat the Nelson mau   had   a mysterious left that  could be depended upon at a critical  moment.   It is  not likely, however,  that the question will ever be settled  by practical illustration.   The discussion t"Een turned on the pugilistic capabilities of the other legal lights engaged in this case.   Some argued that  in the event of an encounter, E. P.  Davis, K. C, would be the best scrapper in the bunch ;  others Contended  that W. A. Macdonald, K. C, had already a reputation which entitled him  to contest with any one of them for  championship honors,, excepting Joseph Martin,  who on account of his  innumerable battles had won the title  of "Fighting Joe."   It was said that  the appearance of William Ross would  frighten a mau to death.and all agreed  that Jame3 O'Shea; with a shillelagh,  could clear out   the whole lot.   The  question then came up as to the utility of settling disputes between parties  in the prize ring instead of in thecourt  room.   It was argued that there would  be some advantage in the way of keeping down costs, but one of the disput-  auts held that it would give a monopoly of the law business of the Province to Bill Galliher.  Does the public banquet justify  the time, the trouble, and the expense  of getting it up? The Guelph Mercury in discussing this subject, believes  that in Lhe majority of cases it docs not.  Tn the first place consider tlie average  committee chosed to carry out the  work. How many oi* the members of  that committee are capable of freeing  themselves from the absurdities and  tyrnanies of bygone customs. It is  true that the old-time 18 or 20 toast-  list has been reduced to about a third  of that number, but we still have an  overweighted toast-list. And the men  who are usually selected to respond���  what of them? Are they selected  for their special fitness to respond  to a particular toast ? Not always, and  not nearly always. The man who responds to "The Imperial Forces" is  usually, of course, an old army man,  and he usually talks army buttons,  pipe-clay and petty details. If he has  a particular grievance���and where is  the old army man without a special  grievance?���he airs that, and an ad-  ditiona-1 enjoyment of it lies in the fact  that it has been, aired a great many  times before. The- old army man's  grievances are always old acquaintances to his friends. Then, there is a  man who insists on delivering an essay  instead of a bright, snappy, after-dinner speech. Then, you have the man  who is so jam full of himself that he  forgets even the clock on the wall before him and entrenches closely on  Eternity���this man is always good for  from three-quarters of an hour to an  hour' and a* quarter, and he usually  leaves his crowd limp.

On one occasion during  the war, Major Scely said, he was instructed to get some volunteers and try  to capture a commandant at a farm  house some twenty iniles away. He  got the men readily, and they set out.  It vvas a rather dcspeiate enterprise,  but thc-y got to the farm house all right,  only to find, however, that the elusive  Boer had:eleared out in an unknown  direction. It was vitally important  that tbe British force should get some  information, for it became a question  perhaps of the Boers catching them  and they not catching the Boer commandant. At the farmhouse they saw  a good-looking Boer boy and some yoe-  men. - Major Seely asked the boy if  the commandant had been there, and  be said in Dutch, taken by surprise,  "Yes." " Where has he gone?" was  the next question, and the boy became  suspicious and answered, "I don't  know." " I decided then," continued  Major Seely, " to do a thing for which  I hope I may be forgiven, because my  men's lives were in danger. I threatened the boy with death if he would  not disclose the whereabouts of the general. He still refused, and I put him  against a wall , and said I would have  him shot. At the same time I whispered to my men, ' For Heaven's sake  don't shoot.' The boy still refused, although I could see he believed I was  going to have him shot. I ordered the  men to 'Present.' Every rifle was  leveled at the boy.

All other fruits are looking re-  ma~rkably~well.~ Throughout the Kootenays, at least where fruit is grown  to any extent, the yield promises to be  unusually large.

Mr. Higgins  was induced to offer his stories to the  public in book form by tbe urgent sol-  icitation of many who believed that interesting events in the history of the  Province could be best preserved in this  way.

Several American teams  are practising with the intention of entering for the championship mateh to  be played at St. Louis during the exhibition'." It would be a matter of surprise, yet quite within the range of possibilities, if the championship of Canada's national game would be some  time held by the neighboring republic.  The recent fire in Fernie is an example of how economy may in the  long run prove extravagance. The  people of that place refused to move in  the matter of incorporation fearing  that their taxes would be greatly increased, and as a lesult they were without appliances to fight a fire that could  have been checked at its inception.

The machinery is all of the most modern pattern, and when ready for operation will  require the attention of several men.  Mr. Gillett finds this absolutely essence  tial in the rapid increase of his trade.  No carpenter shop in British Columbia  will be better equipped than the one  which he is now building. Industries  of tbis kind will assist very materially  in building up Nelson.  In a lecture which Major Seely, M.  P., delivered at Whitfield's tabernacle,  Tottenham court road, London, recently, he told a pathetic story about a  little Boer lad who preferred to die  rather than give any information likely  to result in the capture of his fellow-  over the unionists, and the same charge  holds good against the unionists when  they bad tbe power in their hands.  , Within a few weeks a collection of  Hon.

The city engineer was  among the first lo learn af the break,  and appreciating the danger, he soon  had   two parties at work, one   at the  scene ofthe break, the other constructing a drain along Latimer street westward  from Ward to  divert the water  from the main sewer.   For a while fears  were entertained for   the safety of the  K. "W.

Those  who have suffered loss by the accident  are the Canada Drug & Book Co., T. S.  McPherson, John Thelin and J. Fred.  Hume.    The city's loss will be considerable.

V."  EDITORIAL  COMMENT.  Government ownership is not a   new depaiturc so  far as the Conservative party is  concerned.     Iu elaborating bis scheme of Confederation, tbe late Sir John  Macdonald desired to establish the principle   of Gov-  eminent ownership by taking over  and  maintaining  all telegraph lines.    In this he was   opposed by the  then Liberal leaders, just as  the Liberal party of the  present day objects to Government ownership of railways.   The proposal of Mr. Borden and his party that  the Government  should   build  the new transcontinental railway is cert'iinly justified by existing conditions.    Tbe Government is going lo pay for the railway and the people should own it, instead of handing  it over to a company.  Canada assumes all the liability  and it is only right that it should secure control  of  the asset.  Mr. Hewitt Bostock, who first came into prominence in British Columbia through the ease with which  he became separated from his inherited wealth, has  secured the coveted senatorship. There were three  applicants for the exalted office ���Dr. Sinclair, of  Rossland who is-literally covered with scars received  in   fighting  battles" for   the   Liberal party ;   G.   O.  "Buchanan, vvho only had brains to  recommend him,  . and.Hewitt Bostock, who spent bis money like a  prince for tbe party which gathered bim in. Dr.  Sinclair's wounds were contemptuously ignored : the  tefusal of G. O. Buchanan shows that the I aurier  Government has no use for men of brains; but Sir  Wilfrid evidently felt that be owed a debt of gratitude  to the man who had wasted his  substance  in the in-  . terests of the party. Therefore, Hewitt Bcstock car-  tied off the prize, while Dr. Sinclair and G.O. Buch-  annan were not even honorably mentioned. Mr.  Bostock represented Ya'e-Cariboo in the Dominion  House of Commons for four years, but so far as substantial benefits to his constituency were concerned,  Vale-Cariboo might as well have had no representative at Ottawa during that time.    It is said, howver,  'that many impecunious members of the House found  the" name of the member for Yale-Cariboo a most potential one at tbe banks when attached to a  note.  Interest in tbe Gamey accusations did not end  ���when the commission ceas d its labors. The mau  irom Manitouliu has been holding meetings throughout the Province for the past month and everwhere  crowds flock to hear him. The story he tells does  not differ materially from his evidence on the witness  stand, and it seems to carry conviction with it wherever related. It may be that Gamey was not altogether blameles-", and his methods are not to be com-  "mended, but it mu-st not be forgotten .that be was  dealing with men who would not stop at anything to  retain power.  The agreement given by the Russian Government  lo the Turks that if the Black Sea fleet is permitted to  go through the Dardanelles it will not ietum, seems  to be superfluous. In any event, the Japs will throw  no obstacles iu the way of the agreement being faithfully carried out.  Cardinal Gibbons, who assisted in laying -the corner Jjtode of the new arts building of tbe Ottawa  University, is said to have made a deep impression  on the citizens ofthe Federal capital. The ceremony  was witnessed by Protestants' as well as Roman  Catholics, and the former were very enthusiastic in  their expressions of good will towards this great insti-  tiou of learning. The Cardinal's address, the theme  of which was broad tolerance, elicited general admiration. Oue passage in particular was replete with  charity.  " Are you not," he said, " all children of the same  /ather, brothers and sisters ofthe same Christ, temples  of the same sort ? There are diversities of congrega- i  tions, but the same Spirit. There are diversities of j  ministers but the same Lord ; there are diversities of  opinion, but the same God th.it worketh all in all.  We are all in the same bark, tossed about by the same  storm and starting towards the same eternity���prospective citizens of tbe Kingdom of God."  Duncan Ross is the candidate in the Liberal interest for Yale-Cariboo. Duncan recently made a pilgrimage to Ottaw.i, and since his return hns been  able lo make all.kinds cf promises to his constituents.  The Grits may be lacking in statesmanship, but they  have the game of practical politics down to a  science.  The Tribune complains because the McBride Government has seen fit to avail itself of the advantages  of the advertising columns of the Daily News. It is  only Liberal papers that are supposed to find fault  with the Conservative Government, but as yet the  Daily News has not criticized Mr. McBride on this  score.

The members of that Government have  shown themselves to be desirous only of advancing  the best interests of the Province They do not seek  to retain-power by giving "handouts" to every  tramp who asks them for charity.

C.  P.O. BOX 223  Hon. F. Carter-Cotton has been sworn in -s President of the Council in the McBride Government. Mr.  Cotton is credited with possessing a little more brains  than falls to the lot of the average man. His presence in-the councils ofthe party will no doubt prove  beneBcial both to the Government and the Province. ,  -        - x  There are many theories advanced as to the cause  of the troubl e with tbe Nelson sewers, but the most  probable one is tbat somebody carelessly dropped a  copy of the Nelson Tribune into the pipe,.thereby  causiu g the clogging up and subsequent breakage.  Hon Charles Mackintosh is now in Ottawa aud reports everything favcrable for the Conservative  party in the coming struggle for power. Mr. Mackintosh is expee'ed back shot tly, when he will begin  the serious work of his campaign. The Conservatives in Kootenay district are in a good position to  elect their candidate.  Such dyed-in-the-wool liberal papers as the Toronto Saturday Night incline to the belief that Mr.  Borden's declaration in favor ofthe Government building and owning the railway, which the Grand Trunk  Pacific has been so largely subsidized to construct  will be endorsed by a large and influential section of  the public. Saturday Night says the Liberals have  made a great mistake in putting themselves on the  wrong an d unpopular side of this great question, as  they will discover when the all-absorbing question is  discussed on the public bustlings. "Taken altogether," concludes the Toronto paper, " the Conservative party under the new flag is occupying a mighty  strong position within sight of power."
