EDITORIAL COMMENT.  ELIEF from the nervous tension to  which we were wrought by the lam session of the Provincial Legislature, is leading  loo many to taboo political di>eus-ion. This  is unfortunate, because it is in ihe sober intervals of inaction, not in the excitement of sessional dallies, that calm and intelligent, public opiuion is formed, and never has intelligent attention to public affirm be* n so urgently needed as now. Postponement of ;he  issues until another general election will certainly perpetuate present t-ocuiitions. L21 us  look matters fairly in the face while there is  time lo deliberate.  According to both theory and practice in  Canada, the leader of the government is responsible for every act of the government.  The Hon. James Dun^uiuir is the heat! of a  responsible government,   and as   such   is  on  trial.  Although Mr. DunsmuirV parliamentary  experience dates only from 11.e summer of  1*98 when he was relumed'for Convox, he  had been for many years previous represented  in the Legislature by numerous dependent  employees. The gravest, charge against the  administration of Mr. Turner had been that  laws had been framed and administered in  accordance with the interests of the great railway, land and coal company, of which Mr.  -Dunsmuir is the head. Certainly Mr. Turner  and his colleagues, in office or in oi.po.��itionv  received the consistent support of. all the retainers, and from 1898 to 1900 that of the  feudal chief himself.  When the late Lieutenant Governor^  prompted by his chosen adviser, selected Mr,  Dunsmuir to form a government,*-people  smiled but acquiesced, No one suspected bim  of any ability, but his large financial interest  in the stability of the province seemed a guar  antee that the policy of the composite government party would be to restore confidence in  British Columbia, which had been grievously  disturbed by the vagaries of the Mci'nnea-  Martin regime.  This feeling of security became stronger  when"}, in the speeches if reply to the address  from the throne, the House and the public  were informed that the terms on which Mr.  Dunsmuir received the support of the "majority, were that no contentious .-legislation  should be introduced and that his cabinet  when ..finally formed should be representative  of the various groups that were opposed to  Mr. Martin. It was understood then that Mr.  Turner would retire from office as soon as he  r-8 ored some system to the important depart-  ment of finance.  Meanwhile dissension had arisen in the  government on the question of railway.-, which  might surely be comprenerided in the contentious matter Which had been deferred by general consent.  Mr. Dunsmuir was then unable to coulrjl  ihe Hoa?e,but tne opposition came to his rescue. The price vva?> a eeat in the cabinet fer  Mr. J. C. Brown. But New Westminster declined 10 endorse Mr. Brown's stand, and the  government again seemed falling ; Mr. E. V.  B..dwell stood for Victoria, but some of his  j supporters rashly tried to make political capital for the Liberal party of his running, with  the resuId that Col. Prior was elected.  Since then the government ha* had lhe support oi three groups : Mr. Dunsmuir'* employee.-, to the number of half-a-dozen or so, the  Martin party with the notable exception of  Mr. Smith Curtw, and such other members as  have been aiile to impose their terms upou ihe  premier. No pretence is made of having any  policy out the maintenance of place and  power.  The majority of the members whose support placed Mr. Dunsmuir in office are now in  ooporiiion ; there is no issue but the personnel of the parties.  Ii. is unfortunate that a great youn^j province needing all the energies of its people for  the development of its great resources should  be compelled to limit its political activities  through many successive \ears to driving  from office men or groups of men who possess  neither capacity nor integrity, but it is the  only path to final stability and progress. The  saddest feature of it all is that self-respecting  citizens who might become useful public servant" are naturally reluctant to associate  with tbe legislators of .to-day. The cning  need now is a capable, respectable leader who  will eacrifice his interests and his feelings for  the country's sake and organize a government  of sane and responsible men. Such a one will  com mam! the support of a vast majority of  the electors, who are utterly weary of the kaleidoscopic wriggling and squfrming of tbe  past five years.  There are many things in this world whicfc"  have a decided tendency to make a person tired,  especially   during   this hot. weather.     One of  these is the effort of C��d. Prior, the present Min-   ,:  ister of Mines, to create the impression that he  knows something about   ehe mining industry.  Another is the fact that the Col. occasionally  succeeds in   imposing his  information on the  public as really something  on which reliance  should   |>e placed.     Quite; recently  the  Col.,  addressed j*.board of trade meeting at Victoria,  and without the slightest hesitation attempted  -  to palm off a lot of   the botom stories of four or  five years ago  as genuine,  up-to date information.    It is very  evident that the Minister of  Mines has been studying *omeof the old mining report-, preparatory   to his  contemplated  visit to   the Kooteuay, and his  speech before  the   Victoria   Board of   Trade was simply an  V  undress rehearsal.    Li the Col. should happen ^  to  visit Nelson   and   spring   the   information  ihat *%ihe Hall smelter was bidding for custom U~  smelting," he might.shpck the whole commun'rV  ity.    But if he should add that  the Pilot Bay, {  smelter   was about to   blow   in, we would nofc\  like 10   answer   f.��r   tne itou^equences oh. this:'  already sorely-tried, community.    Yet this   let  just what the Minister oi   Mines told the citi-y<* -  zens of   Victoria  at a   lecent meeting 6f>the-V^  b ��ard of trade in that city.    If the Hall mines,>,  d��d not depend on custom smelting, we would  like the   Col.  to tell us where it would get its ''  ore.    It   would'also   be interesting   to  learn  where   the  Col. secured his  information that  the  Pilot Bay   smelttr  was about   to blow in;  We cannot hope   for any improvement in, the  mining Industry   of   ibis Province   while   the  country labors under the disability of having  at the  head of its mining   department a man  who dares   to make such  statements as were  made by Col. Prior   at the   Victoria   Board of  Trade meeting.  '-.>  Jp Col. Prior, the Minister of Mines, visits  the Kootenay next month, he is apt to hear of  many things to the disadvantage of his government. We are all growing a little weary  of the gold-brick ratjn, and if Col. Prior has  any desire of gaining the credence of the upper  country, he will come here and make open  confession of the rank incompetency itnd crass  ignorance of the members of the government.  We freely confess that the government cannot  do anything for us now AH faith in it has  gone. Yet it might go out of business, andi by  doing so, show it was willing to make some  reparation for its sins. Col. Prior will save  himself much humiliation if he abstains from  telling us what the government intends to do  for the country. We know all about it beforehand. We have been gold-bricked these many  years.  .-*$���  ..Am  1 Ki ;,*-,  m  i.!<tao  %AA>  !f nil n  %,,y.>  I _ ��-,��.,k  "���^I^OTwmwirpifpwwwrpwtijww  ,1  ���."  r^"^*^*���?^^.^^  '.:   -Yf-8  '  lift  ,"P"f*llr"   'W*   <��*-a {( ���!,,���,,  '. ���4+^ftR.7*l.^��^Ml.-t!Wp��d^**Mfj^ W,,,%  ^^^*^a?^*��w**^  .^V.'    t -W^Jf-lt Mftfi. wl*HH-*����,*.i(Mrt%|||,t   Nl*Ht����l-,,t<''"l*W'' K^^-^-iS^SCw^i -����.*.*-  ^IV^.

The sentence vvas that McAdams  should go to the Provincial jail at Victoria for  nine months, and give four securities for  $1,000 for his good conduct in future, otherwise be would receive an additional .sentence*  of twelve months' imprisonlaent. This prac-  tically means that McAdams will enjoy sucH  hospitality as is provided by His Majesty's  jail at Victoria for one year and nine months,  for he will not be able to find four  men in tlie Province who will be prepared to  give security in this amount .-for his good behavior. No confidence is violated in remarking that investments of even this alluring  character are not eagerly sought in", ike  Kootenay at the present t i me. Witbout in  any way justifying MeA<lams-���indeed,"his offence is simply indefensible���I must admit  I have some sympathy for him, as I have for  any young man who sacrifices judgment and  discretion to gain unei.viable notoriety. He  made a statement in his paper that he afterwards admitted in c��urt was-'based, simply, oh:V  the street   talk  of   the   usiiallv misinformed  m  town of Sandon: and  truth is not usiiallv  te-  garded as one  of theshining  virVues   of the  average    Sandon   citizen.    A iiitle  reflection  would have convinced   ni.m   that   his charge  waB utterly groundless, and  lacking  in  even  the quality of possibility.    A Supreme   Court  judge, even if   he were   dishonestly   inclined,  would  not permit   himself   io   be   corruptly  influenced    in     a   -matter,    of    the      character   complained   of,  for    be    would   know  that once in the grip of a litigant-his freedom  would be lost forever.    Tbe judges of  tbe Supreme Court of   British Columbia   may   have  their faults���they would not be human if they  had   not���but their conduct has   never been  subject to   the interpretation   placed  upon   it  by McAdams.    Our courts* may  lie   depended  upon to deal out even-handed justice,   but if,  through errors of ommission  or   commission,  the litigant should not receive  the   considera*  tioa he is entitled   to,   then there are   higher  tribunals and other methods to safeguard   hie  interests    and   those   of  justice.    McAdams  charged that someone bad a " pull" with   the  judges in connection with delay in   a  suit in  which J. K. Clark was suing J. Frank ColJorn  for commission on a mining deal.    The matter was brought to the notice of the   AUorney-  GeneraPs department,  and the offending editor was cited to appear  before   tbe  court, but  instead of doing so he aggravated   his   offense  by   republishing hin   original  article.    Tlu!n  McAdams was arrested   on   a   bench   warrant  -j-  and taken to Victoria. McAdams could make  no defense. In addressing the court, he said  he was a newspaper man by profession, and  he wrote articles which he believed were  largely a reflection of public opinion-���he  wrote things which were being said by people  in the street The press was the servant of the  people, and in writing'the at licit* complained  of he wasprobaoly in a heated htale of mind  and wrote what people in Sandon were say  ing. The case in question had not yet been  settled. .Whether there was any " pull " in  the case he was not prepared to say. He had  no proofs to produce, and he knew little about  the suit. McAditn* then went on to tell what  he knewabuut ihe case, when the Chief Justice remarked :  t% Thai is not the point. You have charged  in your paper that a parly to an action had a  pull with this court ; that the court was corrupt, which is a criminal offence, for 'which  you are liable to go to prison.  Mr. Justice Walkem pointed out  that     delavs    such      as    iu      the    case     of  D ...  Clark vs Cu'llom . occurred other  places   just  as in Briti-h Columbia.  .McAdaui?���-The fact that thev occur in  other placet dues not justify British Columbia.  The Chief Justice���You are not brought  here for saying that this court was dilatory,  but for raying that someone had a pull with  the court and that the court was corrupt. I  want to know it* all this i^ an apology, because, if so, T want to bear the apology in the  clearest terms.  McAdaui!�����I admit that I was wrong in  saying that the court was corrupt, ami I consider that an apology is due.  Trie Chief Justice���If the defendant has  .nothing more to urge, ihe court will adjourn  and give -Judgmentin half an  hour.  On the court resuming, the Chief Justice  said that the court found the defendant guilty,  on his own admissions of a serious contempt  of court and of a scurrilous attack upon the  court with a view to scandalizing the judi-  ciarv before the countrv. The statements in  the article in question stabbed the court in  its most vital parts, because it shook the confidence of the public in the administration of  justice. The defendant appeared to be a man  of some education and should have known  better than to write such an article. Not s:��t-  i*fied with one offence, he had repeated it.  His apology was worse than no apology, because be bad limited it to one portion of the  offence. His Lordship thought tbe court  would be very remiss if it allowed articles of  the sort in question to go unchallenged. He  wished to remind McAdams that be was not  going to be made a hero of, as there were no  heroes in the iails of British Columbia.  Sentence was then pronounced as above.  It will be seen from the foregoing that McAdams had no reliable authority for his  statement that a judge bad been guilty of a  corrupt act. if be had, bis proper curse  would have been to have brought the matter  t" tbe attention of the Minister of Justice,  and then discuss the matter in bis paper.  Therein machinery provided for dealing'with  corrupt judges, but even   in  this (l  age the newspapers are not fegarde:  or parcel of this   machinery.

The fact-of the matter is, and  it never was regarded a secret i n the L. melon  clubs, that the friends of Mace threw every  obstacle in the way of a meeting between  their man and Bob Foster, and fortunately  for Mace he succeeded in keeping out of arm's  reach of "Old Tulip," for it meant for him defeat���decisive obliteration. Prof. Foster has  spent the later years of his life in training  athletes, and temperance people will find in  him a striking denonstration of the beneficial  effect of total abstinence. He has a theory,  based on practical experience;that a drinking  man can never become a great athlete, so he  not only eschews the flowing b>wl himself,  but also enjoins those under his charge to live  an abstemious upright life, and therein may  be said to repose the secret of his glorious victories. He has no equal in the Dominion as  a trainer, his methods being the result of scientific study. Mr. Foster was educated for the  c'.iurch, but on account of some difference,  with the Bishop of London���some say it was  the pronounced ritualistic tendency of the  church of that day���he diverted his ability  into other channels. As might be suspected,  be is a Conservative in politics, and is a  tower of strength to that party in time of  political battle. As a speaker he is epigrammatic, but his logic is unimpeachable. He  I* a constant reader of The EcoNOMiST|cwhich,  be says, he admires on account of its faithful  adherence to the principles of truth.  The Nelson baseball team sustained its  reputation last Sunday by being defeated 8 to  1 by a Rossland team. If this is the way it  proposes to wipe out the California disgrace  it should go away back and sit down at once  Nevertheless, Neluon has three or four players  who could get a place on any team on the  Coast. The rest are not eligible to play on a  Sandon team.  The Crow's Nest Coal C ��. :s not deserving  of much sympathy, and I am pleased to note  that it is not receiving any. The manager  cannot be held altogether responsible for his  attempt to create new divisions in the hours  of labor in British Columbia, and. incidentally to set aside the custom that  has regulated coal mining in this Province for  years. Evidently he is acting under the instructions of the Grit clique in ihe east who  are anxious to impose slavery conditions on  the workmen of this Province.  Nelson amateurs have scared another success, this time in the dramatic lino. The  audience at the Nelson Opera House Thursday evening was one of the largest that has  gathered in that place of amusement for some  time and all enjoved themselves. The bill  consisted of two pieces���the comedietta, Q. E.  IX, or All a Mistake, and a one act farce, Tho  Area Belle.    Those taking part were Mrs. W,  A. Macdonald, Mrs. M.'-S. Davj's, and Messrs.  ���W. A. Stewart, F. B. Ward and R. McFar-  Jand. Bnth Mrs. Macdonald and Mrs. Davys  are possessed of more than usual ability in the  dramatic line, and both Were the recipients of  bouquets and much applause. Mrs. Macdonald sang a solo during the evening in her  usual charming manner. Much credit is due  to all who took part in the entertainment.  The orchestra under the leadership of Mr. R.  M. McDonald added largely to the enjoyment  of the evening.  A few weeks ago a Provincial scrib*,. who  shall be nameless, wrote a paragraph iu which  he made mention of "the Athanasian Creed."  Judging his horror when, luckily seeing a  proof, he found that "the Athanasian Creed"  appeared in type as *' the Anathema Creed."  Perhaps it may" be that the " comp" had  " views "on the subject of creed. The following appeared several months ago in a pa pen  which need not be named, but which established a world wide reputation on account of  its typographical errors : "Their health was  toasted in an infernal glass of wine." Of  course the reporter swore he wrote " an infor-  mai idaseof wine," and blamed the printer.  The latter, however, was equally positive the  copy was " infernal," and blamed the reporter  ���and, incidentally, the wine !r  As The Economist goes to press the regatta  is in full swing, and if the members of the  committee have fulfilled the promises they  have made to the public the event should be  a red-letter day in the history of'Nelson. The  weather seems to be all that could be desired  and certainly ihe oarsmen will have no just  cause io cotuplaiu of the sheet of water���  which is generally conceded to be the best  adapted for aquatic events to be found any  place on the continent. If the .regatta has  been properly advertised there will be thousands of people here to witness the great international event. In next issue I hope to be  able to conscientiously chronicle a satisfactory result and to congratulate the committee  on the perfection of their work.  The ball game between S.mdoi and Rossland ended in a fizzle The boys from Rossland were on hand and waited in the sun for  the Freaks to put iu an appearance.. But they  never came. A couple of representatives came  to tne grounds after the Kaslo steamer had  docked, but they came -o kick. The order  of sports was not being arranged to suit  them. First of all they were not getting  enough money. Then they were suspicious  of the draw. Thoy saw ho reason why they  should not have secured it. But in Spite of  those very serious objections they wou <i play  ball���when they got ready. They were hungry, however, and they required a meal.  They were also tired and required to rest  after the fatigue of a journey from Sandon to  Nelson, which was broken by a night's redt at  Kaslo. They would play sometime during  the afternoon and they affected an air of  confidence that they would afford a sufficiently  high-class entert iinmeut to warrant the sports  committee in throwing the advertised fixtures  out of joint, as well as to compensate the Ross-  land men f����r their very dizzy experience of a  couple of hours in the boiling sun.  Their arguments were not very convincing  to the expectants in the, grand stand. They  hdd paid their money to see a game of ball,  and they wanted it right then. They considered that as both teams were in shape they  should get down to business and do their  scrapping som^ other time. That it was not  their fault if the talent or the Freaks was of so  delicate a nature that it could not travel  and play ball.the same day.  Then there was a long, dreary, trying wait,  and the problem was passed up to the umpire,  James Neelands. He looked at his SwiaS  watch, and saw that the advertised time for  the game had been overrun 40 minutes. He  gave the Freaks five minutes to get their hungry, tfred and frightened aggregation   on   the  ground.    And   whe��"   they   failed   in   this   he  - - * ��-* -   . . .  awarded the game to Rossland, which was the  only commendable feature of  a very sicken- '  ing exhibition of bibyism. 0        .      .  The decision does not materially affect the  baseball tournament as the; Rossland men  would have won anyway, and it was the consciousness of this which doubtless had most id  d t wiih the tunk of tne freaks.  r *  The lacrosse match this afternoon between  NeUon and Vancauver was a fair exhibition  of the national game. The Nelson men have  been* practis:ng hard for some weeks in anticipation of this match, but not hard enough to  win. At 2 o'clock the teams lined up. Vancouver got the ball, but it soon got down to  the latter's goal, and Nosman relieved with a  long throw. Afier some pretty passing1 Van*  couver scored in five mfnutes.  In the second game the ball  went down   to  the Nelson   goal,   but   Vancouver failed   to  score.    Joe Thompson fought hard, but Charlie Jeffs did not play his game, and Vancouver  .fcored."  In the third game, Perrier did some good  playing, but shot too high to be effective,  Vancouver scored in le.-s than a minute.  In the fourth- game, Thompson, Archibald,  Al Jeffs and Black hood did a lot of good  work, but Norman saved Vancouver. Eight  beconds after half-time Vancouver scored.  The fifth game was hotly contested. , Nelson scored its first goal In 9 minutes.  Vancouver scored the next game in 2 minutes, and the seventh game in 1 minute.  In the eighth game Blackwood and Al  Jeffs were playing well when three-quarter  time was called.  Vancouver scored its seventh goal in eight  minutes, and Nelson scored its second goal in  six minutes. Then three minutes after, just  before time, Vancouver scored its eighth goal*.
