PRICE EIVE CENTS  I  CELEBRATION   CLOSE   NOW  ' Arrangements of Committees.  The committee on decorations  havo delegated the work of decorating the streets to J. E. Halton.  Mr. Halton lias done similar work  in Seattle during celebrations there,  and should make a good job of it.  The committee would also urge  upon all citizens the advisability of  decorating their residences and  places of business. Without this  cooperation the decoration of the  streets will fall flat. Every house  should put ou gala dress for Dominion Day.  The Nelson boat club held a  meeting last night at ��� which the  program for the four-oared races  held under its auspices was arranged.  Two crews have dropped out of the  running, leaving six to compete.  The drawing for the first heat took  place last evening, George Beer's  crew and the Hudson's ..Bay Company's crew securing byes.  The first heat will be rowed off  ou Saturday afternoon at 3:30  o'clock between the following  crows: Winter, stroke, liickling,  Heaven and Curtis, and Hislop,  stroke, Clarke, Piercy aud Lauder.  When this race is over A. F. Procter's crew, whose composition has  not yet been anuounced, will row a  four consisting of Mathews, stroke,  Ifervey, MacCrae and Wetmore.  Oh Monday at 2 p. in. the winning  crew in - the first of Saturday's  races will.row George Beer's crew,  and then the winner of the second  ���will.row tho Hudson's Bay crew.  The final heat will be pulled off the  same afternoon after a suitable interval.  About 25 new members were  elected to the boat club.  adept at the diamond game, but iu  most of the ladies' teams which  tour the East and West from year  to year the fair baseballists play a  rattling good game and need no  handicap when pitted against the  average amateur nine.  MONEY BYLAWS CONSIDERED  Some enquiry has been made as  to the height of iloats. It Avill be  remembered that last year the  Hudson's Bay Company's float was  too high and got hung up on a  fe'���" .wire. Measurements have been  taken this year, however, and it is  announced " that the lowest wire  the floats have to pass under is IS  feet from the ground, so . designers  of floats can govern themselves  accordingly.  The general committee of the  Dominion Day celebration met yesterday afternoon and selected the  following judges: ���*.  For the drilling contest���E. R.  Woakcs and Bruce White, timekeeper to be chosen later.  Fire department sports ��� John  Houston, M.P.P., and W. A.  Galliher.  Trades procession���Judges to be  from outside points and to be  selected later.  Aquatic sports���Judges at finish,  . J.  S.  C. Eraser,   manager of   the  Rossland   branch   of the  Bank  of  Montreal, aud T. G. Procter,; starter,  Herbert Play ford;  Por the water carnival  and the  "sailing race the judges are to be selected later, those for the former to  be prominent gentlemen from, outside points.     ."  The general committee yesterday  appropriated $50 as a prize for a  rifle shooting contest. Captain  Forin of the Rossland Rifles has  written to Nelson that he will be  on hand with two teams of ten  men each, and one team is expected  from Kaslo. The local company  will also enter two or three teams.  The fencing of the recreation  grounds is progressing rapidly and  by the end of the week everything  will be shipshape for games. The  old grand stand was taken down  last week and is being put up again  in a new location behind the home  plate of the baseball diamond. One  portion of the stand is south of the  backstop and the balance is on the  north side of the grounds near the  old band stand. This is a big improvement from the standpoint of  spectators at ball games, where the  vantage point is behind the plate,  but for the other games the old location was most desirable. The  grand staud as it will be when completed should accommodate 000 or  700 people.  Some misapprehension seems to  have arisen with regard to the  drilling contest, aud for the benefit  of any intending competitors, the  conditions are reproduced here  again.  The winners will receive a trophy worth $100, and $100 in cash,  and the second prize will be $50.  Miners from any mine can enter  providing they have been working  iu the mine from which they enter  at least 30 days prior to July 1st.  Tho competitors from any mine  must be chosen by a vote of the  other men working in that mine,  and they must bring with them credentials signed by the superintendent of the mine. Entries * must be  made to K. C. Beaton, secretary of  the. celebration committee, on or  befoie Saturday .Tune 30. The contest will be one' down hole, -16.15  minutes, and the last drill to be J  inch at the cutting edge. .The entering teams will consist of two  men. The drills must be supplied  by the contestants, and may be  sharpened by whomsoever they desire. E. R. ���Woakes and Bruce  White jvilljact as; judges.. .'._ ..  The Winnipeg crack four-oared  crew arrived in Nelson ou the  steamer Moyie this morning about  2 o'clock, where captain Troup  made arrangements for them to  pass the night. At 8 o'clock this  morning a deputation from the  boat club will go down to receive  them aud escort them to the Phair  hotel, whicli will be their headquarters while here. They are  bringing a paper shell here. The  Vancouver crew, the exact date of  whose arrival is as yet unknown,  will row in a cedar shell.  There is a big demonstration in  Greenwood oil Friday and Saturday,  but a special traiu is to run in here  from the Boundary on Sunday and  it is expected that the Greenwood  aud Grand Forks contingents will  run into the hundreds. Preparations  for the water carnival on Tuesday  night are being made on an  elaborate scale, there will be endless Chinese lanterns, fireworks,*  searchlights, and' so forth, which,  taken, with the numerous beautifully decorated boats, will make  Kootenay lake a scene of splendour  "and beauty. Only fine weather is  needed to ensure perfect success.  The Boston Bloomers ladies' baseball team is scheduled to come here  ou Friday, local C. P. R. officials  having been notified to this effect.  From this ifc is surmised that the  team -will cross bats with Nelson on  that date, although the date must  have been closed by manager  Waterman while in Spokane, as he  had received no word from the  ladies before leaving on the trip. If  the ladies play ball here citizens  will have an opportunity of witnessing an unique game. The fair  sex is not ordinarily supposed to be  The arrangements for the water  -carnival on Tuesday night have  been got into shape, aud preparations are being made for an unrivalled display.

Tricks That Are Vain.  Washington, June 25. ��� The  Chinese minister has asked an  armistice in the sending of American troops to China based on the  assurance of the Chinese viceroys  that they ean maintain peace.  President McKiniey, while acknowledging his gratification at the  assurance, has made known to the  Chiuese minister that the United  States cannot relax its efforts to  get troops to points where its  officials and citizens are in danger.  City Council Meeting.  July 18th will be a polling day in  Nelson, the cifcy council having decided at last night's council to submit the five money bylaws to the  ratepayers on that date.  The members of the council were  out in full force, mayor Houston,  aldermen Arthur, Irvine, Wilson,  McKillop, Hall and Morrison being  present.  Bylaw No. 08��to raise $15,000 to  extend the waterworks system was  re-introduced'and the council went  into committee with alderman McKillop in the chair. The committee  made the life of the debentures 20  years and the rate of interest 4 per  cent. It was read a third time in'  council and left over to a future  meeting for final reconsideration  and passage. The same process  was gone through with in connection with the $15,000 electric light  bylaw, the $30,000 sewerage bylaw,  the $20,000 street; improvement bylaw and the $6000 road-making  plant bylaw. The bylaws will be  submitted to the ratepayers on  Wednesday, July 18fch. The poll  for the West ward will be held at  the . office of the Exchequer Gold  Mining Company on the north side  of Baker street between Stanley  and Kootenay streets, and for the  East, ward at the city police office  on Josephine street, the polls to be  open between the hours of 8 a.m.  and 4 p.m..  P. E. Shackleton, secretary of the  Nelson Laborer's Union, wrote  stating that the union desired to  withdraw its petition .to the council requesting shorter hours for  drillers and muckers engaged on  eity work. The communication  was received aud filed.  Bylaw No. 73 to regulate the  streets and sidewalks of the city  was re-introduced and the council  went, into committee with alderman Irvine iu the chair. After  .reading a few> clauses_the committee rose and reported progress. The  council then referredtbe. bylaw to  the next regular meeting of the  council. In the meantime a special  committee compi'ising aldermen  Irvine and mayor Houston will  meet and go through the bylaw  wifch the eity engineer to revise fche  document.  Alderman McKillop introduced  bylaw No. 74 to govern the erection of buildings, regulate the  stringing Avires and prevention of  fires. This was read a first time,  after which the council went into  committee with alderman McKillop  in the chair. The final adoption  was placed on the order sheet for  the next meeting.  Alderman Hall asked if anything  had been done toward repairing  the bicycle path, to which the city  engineer responded that the path  from^the^city'limi'tF^t^tHe^Honey^  man fbundry'had been obliterated  and was now used as a wagon road,  so that the $100 appropriated for  the purpose would accomplish so  little as to be practically useless.  The council had no, power to keep  teams off the path, and he thought  nothing could-be done until bicycle  legislation was passed by the legislature.  In the course of discussion as to  the advisability of continuing the  rock work on Victoria street, alderman Arthur put himself on record  as opposed to the by-law to raise  $20,000 for road improvement.  Mayor Houston was strongly in  favor of continuing the rock work.  Every business man on Baker  street;, he stated, had ui-ged from  time to time that Baker street  should be macadamized, and now  thafc fche city had purchased an expensive road-making plant ifc would  be showing the white feather to sit  down and allow the machinery to  stand idle. He predicted that all  the by-laws would be carried with  good round majorities, despite the  fact that one alderman and four or  five citizens had stated their intention to vote against them.  The discussion resulted in a statement by alderman Arthur that fche  mayor had carried out unauthorized  expenditures, quoting an excavation  on Mill street from which gravel  had been taken for the grading on  Stanley street. Aldermen Irvine  and McKillop broke into the discussion wifch the remark thafc the;  gravel from the pit in question was  not only the best obtainable bufc  was the most available for the  Stanley street work which was  carried oufc by order of the council.  Naturally alderman Arthur's com  plaint fell flat, particularly in view  of the stand taken by aldermen  Irvine and "McKillpp. The matter  was .dropped and/the council adjourned until July 3rd at 10 a.m.  TRYING FOR AN ARMISTICE  Chinese' Situation. .-  Washington, D.: C, June ..25.���  The chief development in the Chinese situation today was the effort  of the Chinese minister to secure an  armistice in the operations of the  American troops .until Li Hung  Chang could reach Pekin and bring  about a cessation *; of the disorder.  Tho proposition is" a novel one and  is based on the representations of  the viceroys of the important provinces of the Yang Tse Kiang that  thafc they can maintain order without the aid of foreign troops and  that the presence of foreign troops  might bring about disorder. The  minister brought these representations to the attention of secretary  Hay, who consulted with the president.  The latter's decision, as conveyed  to the minister, was that while the  assurance'of the viceroys for continued qiiiet was fully appreciated,  the United States government  could nofc bind: itself not to send  troops where disorder existed, and  where the lives of officials and citizens were in danger. '���  Secretary Long said afc 4 o'clock  thafc nothing had' come from ad-  miralKempff oh  the casualties of  the first engagement of the American marines with the Chinese, or  on the outcome of the second engagement . which was to have occurred yesterday.     The only dispatch received .by   secretary Hay  was the belated one from Kempff  asking - for     instructions    as r to  whether, he should- co-operate with  other nations in taking Taku. forts.  This'must.-have-been   sent   some  'days     ago'   as/the   ,Taku    forts  were taken the middle of last week.  Under the circumstances there was  , no. occasion for. .answering the admiral's requesfcrks' lie-already had-  been advised  of ihe geueral  purpose of fche  United  States  to  act  concurrently with the other powers  in .the protection of   American  interests.     The state department remained through out the day without  information from minister Conger  or any other source. ��� The only dispatch   received  was   from   consul  John Goodnow at Shanghai, saying  he had heard nothing from Pekiu  since the 14th.    On  the  whole the  day was one of anxiety.  CLOSING IN ON THE BOERS  Some Break Through.  London, June 26.���4 a. m.���Lord  Roberts' six columns are converging so as to close in on the Free  Staters, although decisive results  BALL PLAYERS REACH HOME  Notes on Athletics.  The   baseball   club   came   home  from Spokane last night and were  accorded a splendid reception.  The  fact that they were defeated by a  narrow   majority    in   the   second  game of the series did not seem to  detract in the estimation of baseball enthusiast from their victory  in the first game against the Spokane outfit which consisted of players belonging to the athletic club,  Blair College, Northport; aud   Colville nines.   The players detrained  at the mountain station aud took a  bus down town. On  Latimer street  they wore   met;   by the   municipal  band, who marched ahead "playing  a lively quickstep.    The procession  marched to Stanley street, then to  Baker and disbanded at the corner  of Josephine street, where several  hundred citizens gathered   to witness the   proceedings and give a  hearty cheer for the ball club.   The  reception tendered the nine demonstrated the enthusiasm  of   Nelson  baseball lovers, and it is extremely  probable that the team would have  been treated jusfc as handsomely if  they   had lost   both- the matches  across the border.  It seems that the Spokane Amateur Athletic Association entertains  the greatest respect for the baseball powers of the Nelson aggregation. When the games stood one  all an effort was made to get up a  .third match for yesterday, and the  Nelson men offered to put up a  .thousand dollars on the result;, bufc  the Spokane ball tossers could not  be induced to play again for money  or marbles.  One. of the Nelson team was induced to stay behind to play in the  composite Spokane team against  Stanford University, and overtures  were made to others,-but without  success. ' The Spokane people know  good ball players when, they see  them.  : The Nelson men are unanimous in  their praises of the hospitable way  fchey were treated while in Spokane,  both by fche club and the public.  Umpire AlDoddj who umpired both  games,' proved himself to be an exceptionally fair aiid able umpire.  tion committee not having appropriated a cent toward football.  The club is showing a most sportsmanlike spirit and deserve encouragement. Citizens who witness  fche match will see a fast game and  a first-class athlete contest. The  grounds should be crowded.  The gun club will hold a meeting  this week to determine whether or  not to hold a shoot during the celebration next week. A number of  the members are of opinion that as  no outside clubs are likely to send  in representatives, it would be good  policy to hold the proposed holiday  shoot next Saturday on the regular  practice day. AVith the counter  attractions on the demonstration  days ifc is probable that only the  most enthusiastic trapshooters  would care to give up an afternoon,  particularly as no outsiders are to  be present. The* extremely hofc  weather detracts materially from  the pleasure of fcrapshooting, and  afc the club meeting to be held this  week action will probably be taken  as indicated above.  Anti-Chinese Bill.  Ottawa, June 25���[Special to  The Tribune].���The Chinese bill  raising the poll tax from $50 to  $100 was reported in the house  today and stands for * the third  reading. Morrison made an attempt to amend the bill ou the  lines of the Natal act, excluding  Chinese and Japanese, but for  reasons iweviously given Laurier  opposed ifc. However, in lieu of  this the premier made an important  concession, namely, to restrict  Japanese immigration to twelve per  month, as now arranged for in  Japan. This will be done by order-  in-councik the government. taking  power to do so. Prior condemned  the legislation, which he declared  did nofc go far enough, and Maxwell  held it was only a first instalment.  A clergyman's wife, wheu of Chinese origin," is exempt from the act.  Edwards- and Christie . were the  only ones who spoke against the  merits of the bill, the former declaring that those who. advocated  such contemplated legislation were  no better, than,Boers-or~Boxers.--.  cannot be expected for several days.  A. number of Boers who were supposed to be within the wide-flung  net have broken through general  Rundle's lines.  The Canadians were engaged in  the Honing Spruit fight last; Friday. General Dewet's men first  cut off a Canadian outpost of  mounted rifles at dawn. Two were  killed. Lieutenant Triglis and four  officers Avere wounded, and three  captured. The Free Staters then  attacked the camp where 50 Canadians were and two companies of  Shropshires, though without effect,  as the men were well entrenched.  United States consul Hay of Pretoria is going to Machadorp to see  the British prisoners.  Eighty Hollanders have been  lodged in jail at Standerton for destroying property. The wives and  children of the Boers are surprised  that the British do nofc loot more,  but pay for what they get.  The Boers derailed a construction train near Standerton on June  24th. Two trainmen were killed  aud four badly wounded.  Motion Adjourned.  The application for an injunction  in the case of Kwong Wing Choug  vs. Lapointe ��fc Crofts came up before his honor Judge Forin yesterday morning, S. S. Taylor, Q. C,  appearing for the applicants and  P. E. Wilson contra. The motion was  adjourned to July 4. Mr. Taylor applied for an interim injunction restraining defendants from taking  out more brick than they require  for the kiln now being burned, and  on his representation that more  material was being taken out than  necessary for this purpose, his honor granted the interim injunction.  Rifle shooting seems  to  be coming rapidly to the front as a pastime in Nelson.    During the weeks  thafc have elapsed since  fche season  opened     interest    has     increased  steadily, and as the rifle association  has no part in the celebration program, this must be credited to the  merits   of   the  sport.    The   scores  show that the marksmen are profiting by the practice  obtained.    The  Nelson  range is  rather trying  to  slioot over, as, owing to the nature  of the ground, gusts of wind blow  across   the   field,    disturbing   the  points wliich  marksmen establish  for each target.    It; is safe  to  estimate that the marksmen shoot under a handicap of five points on an  =average*afternqt5ir^n=this^c"coUntT  With this added to the scores made  atthe last shoot.it  will be found  that the average is excellent.    The  association   may   bring    Rossland  here for a match  within the  next  few weeks, when the force of these  statements will   doubtless   be demonstrated.   The Rossland   range  is well  protected and rarely  has  any     wind     worth     mentioning.  When   a   wind   does   blow   it   is  steady,  and  the   rifleman,  having  once calculated the Avindage, is not  inconvenienced.    The normal wind  on the Nelson range is of the  fishtail variety and may vary from a  zephyr   to   half   a   gale   while   a  man   is    making   two     or   three  shots.    It   is   this   feature   which  militates against   "possibles,"   but  the experience is practical and the  marksman   who gets   over the   80  mark at the local range has to be a  first-class shot.    The  association is  now discussing the advisability of  replacing the present revolving targets with the window target, so-  called, as ifc is  worked like an  ordinary houso window.   This  ifc   is  believed,   would expedite the practice and in other ways improve the  shooting.          Citizens avIio intend patronizing  the celebration sports on the recreation grounds should bear in  mind the football match on Tuesday afternoon. Tho club is bringing the Kaslo team here for the  game and paying all tho visitors'  expenses, besides which they are  purchasing a handsome trophy to  be competed for. These expenses,  aggregating considerably over $100,  are to be met out of the players'  pockets and from the two-bit entrance fees collected from those  who attend tho game, the eelebra-  Children's Sports.  The small boys are not to be forgotten on Dominion Day. E. J.  Curran of the Club .

The events come off on  Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock at  the corner of Silica and Stanley  streets.

Lowrie, a Presbyterian missionary, who has been stationed at  Pao Tiug Fu for the last six years,  arrived here on fche Doric. She reports that on the night; of May  lOfch, many native Christians, principally women and children, were  murdered by the Boxers,-while  fleeing from Pao Ting Fu toward  Tien Tsin.

Mr. Tarte  yesterday delivered himself of one  of those peculiar, unhappy speeches  for   which   he   has   succeeded   in -  building for himself a reputation."  Mr.   Tarte, as   Canadian   commis-;  sioner-general, was invited to give"'  a lecture on Canada, and this took -'"  placein the Canadian pavilion. at^I-  the   exposition  ground   yesterday./  afternoon.   Mr. Tarte drifted into',2.  a politico-religious disquisition, and:'_;  aroused   the   enthusiasm    of    his\J"  Parisian auditors by declaring that. ���'  French     Canada     was   never   so ._  French and Catholic as afc the pre--".,  sent time, and thafc the independ-  /  ence   of   England,    now   enjoyed,   ,  would be still further increased in - '*  the future.    The fcri-color, he said,*:  was now &��d ever would be the  _ *  flag of French Canada. ���'  - "When I see," said Mr. Tarte,' ";  "Frenchmen emigrating to foreign - ~\  countries, where their language and ;***  their institutions cannot be pre-**-;,  served to "them, I ask myself why **_  these compatriots of ours do not ' ,',  come to Canada to join us.

To   this   I   might  reply  somewhat in the words of a French  gentleman Avith whom I Avas speaking jusfc the other day.     We  were  discussing  the question  of a possible European Avar, and coming fco  the   point   of   likely   allies,   this,  gentleman said that if France foimd  herself-* without friends  she  con id  stand alone and let Europe  go her  Avay.

Belief Forces Join Hands.  ���London, June 20.���The British  cruiser Terrible has arrived at Chefoo from Taku With'the latest news  which is as follows: "Eight hundred Sikhs and 200 Welsh Fusilet-rs  have affected a junction with tho  American, German and Russian  forces Avhich had been cut off by  the Chinese aboufc nine miles from  Tien Tsin. It was proposed to deliver an assault upon the Chinese  force at Tien Tsin lasfc night. Ifc is  nofc clear Avhafc forces had united.  It would seem that one relieving  was cut off, and had been relieved  by another. At any rate, it is certain the allies arrived iu  sufficient; force on Sunday to  attack the besieging Chinese.  "Foreign office opinion here," says  a dispatch from Shanghai to the  Daily Express, dated yesterday,  "inclines to believe that the Avoist  has happened to the legations afc  Pekin and admiral Seymour as AAreIl.  Even if the legations were safe on  June 19th tlfere is no guarantee  that they are noAV. The situation  grows more gloomy. The entire  absence of reliable neAA-s from the  cajiital seems to justify the Avorsfc  construction which can be placed  upon it. Bad neAvs comes from  Nankin, Avhere the unrest is said to  be groAving hourly.  Vacancies in the House.

Bay  g&he g&rtbttttg.  The flag incident is again occupying the attention of Ontario press.  It crops up every summer wifch the  approach of Dominion Day and the  fourth of July.   A domestic servant  in Sfc. Catharines sends a letter to  the Buffalo Express, in Avhich she  announces   her    determination   to  float...the Stars, and Stripes on the  fourth day of the seventh inonth,  and forthwith the before mentioned  domestic receives- more  attention  from the press of Ontario than the  constitutional crisis in British Columbia, the prohibition crotchet of j  Manitoba,  or the development of  the new Ontario.  The Tribune has a communication from Joseph Burns dealing  with the recent article in the Nelson Miner which was construed by  many to have been a reflection  i.pon   Charles   Hillyer   as an em-  .   The cifcy council lasfc evening decided to submit the several money  bylaws to the  ratepayers  ou July  18th.    The matter of the submission  of   the bylaws  has  been hanging  .fire for some time, but the members  of the council have finally passed  them up to the ratepayers for their  assent or rejection.    With  the exception   of   the  bylaws  for street  improvements and plant, the money  to be borroAved is all to be expended  upon   revenue  producing Utilities.  The proposed expenditure upou the  streets,    however,   can    easily   be  justified, as the macadamizing of  the streets in the  business  portion  of the city was one of the main  issues of the lasfc campaign, ifc being  generally conceded that Nelson has  advanced to  that   stage  where  a  commencement should be niade  in  securing something better than mud  roadways.

The mills of justice are frequently referred to as slow of motion, but the Nelson police court is  nothing if not swift. At 29 minutes past 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon W.H. Bullock-Webster, chief  of provincial police, was attending  to his usual duties iu his office. A  minute later How Wong, a Chinaman, who resides at Fifteen-mile  point, entered and stated that Petrie,' the man sent down lasfc Aveek  for three months on the charge of  stealing poker chips, had robbed  him of a watch.

It is a petition of  right filed by Messrs. McCarthy,  Osier, Hoskin and Creelman, the  eminent firm of solicitors of Toronto, agaiust her majesty, by the  .Qu'Appelle, Long Lake and Saskatchewan Railroad and Steamboat  Company, the Qu'Appelle, Long  Lake and Saskatchewan Land Com-,  pany (Limited), of London,' England,  tlio honorable Donald Maclnues,  Osier & Hammond'of Toronto, and  the honorable William Pugsley of  St. John, N. B. From a perusal of  the petition of right on file in the  Exchequer court, which is a very  voluminous pleading, consisting of  nearly a hundred pages of printed  matter, it appears that the railway  company constructed its line of  railway from Regina to Prince Albert in the Northwest Territories in  consideration of aland grant of OlOO  acres per mile, it beiug agreed that  tho lauds should be fairly fit for  settlement. The total grant to the  company amounts to 1,497,344 acres,  which it became entitled to in 1890,  Avlien the railway Avas completed  and accepted by the government.  J'Yom this is to be deducted 499,114  acres reserved by the government  ns security for repayment of any  balance which, at the end of twenty  years, might be due the government  i>y reason of a yearly payment  v which the government agreed to  make of $80,000 por year, from  which the company's charges for  carrying tho mails, Mounted Police  THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  . Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and Dawson City,- N. "W. T.  and Indian supplies are to be deducted, the land being security for  any balance due.  Thus the net quantity of land  which tbe company is entitled to  receive is 998,230 acres. The supplicants allege that out of the reserve  set apart for the company by the  government, in 1890, there is only  224,330 acres coming .within the  description of lands fairly fit for  settlement, leaving a shortage of  773,894 acres, and they' now claim  compensation for the deficiency,  with .interest since 1890, when the  grant_3vas   earned.

Hay, Inspecter.  sets out that lands fairly fit for  settlement mean lands each quarter  section of which, as respects soil  and climate, is capable of enabling  a man to make a reasonable living  for himself and his family.  ���As lands in the Northwest, suitable for settlement, are0 selling as  high as $5,per acre, by the Canadian  Pacific Railway Company and other  land companies, it will be seen that  the claim of the suppliants, with  iu terest, if based on that figure  would amount to upwards of $5,-  '000,000, and as lands in the West  are rapidly increasing in value, it is  probable that the long delay in arriving afc a settlement has materially increased the damages which  the petitioners may possibly recover.  The petition* sets out voluminous  correspondence had with the minister of the interior in the previous  government, the offer of the company to accept land in other localities and its refusal to accede to  tlieir request. Ifc also shows that  constant efforts have been made by  the present minister during the past  four years to reach a solution of the  difficulties and his failure to do so,  and finally his admission of his inability, owing to the claims of the  Canadian Pacific Railway Company  and other companies holding agreements made with the previous government, to grant to the suppliants  other lands than those in the reserve set apart for the company,  the greater portion of which has  been rejected.  The present very serious difficulty  seems to have arisen from a misconception of the   available areas of  Nelson Branch���Burns Block, 221 Baker Street  J. M. LAY, Manager.  land in the Northwest suitable for  settlement, and the granting to  the various companies of more land  than was available.  Having failed, as the petition  claims, to secure its grant, the railway company and the other suppliants, who are its grantees, allege  thafc they have. been forced to sue  the crown in order.to recover compensation for the breach of contract.  The petition sets forth that the  incorporators * of the English Land  Company, one of the suppliants,  furnished^the^moneyJkto^consti'ucfcl  the > railway, and complains very  strongly of the fact that although  ten years have elapsed * since the  the railway was constructed and  the land grant earned,, they have  not been able to obtain either the  land, or a money compensation in  lieu of it. ���  His excellency, the governor-general has .endorsed on the' petition  his fiat, "Let right be.done,'' so that  it now rests* with the Exchequer  court* to determine the important  questions at issue/ between the suppliants and her,majesty.-  CANADIANS   AT   BEIRA.  Mr. Aemilius Irving has received  aletter from his _son, captain L. E.  Went worth Irving, a lieutenant in  C. Battery ���'-of _the second contingent. The first section is dated at  Marandalles; April 29th. - It says,  in part: ��� ���;-������-���  "We are at the end of 351 .miles  of the hardest and toughest railway  travelling I have or hope to experience; This place is the height  of the land, and to find: it on the  map you have to look about 150  miles southeast of Salisbury.'  "They sent me ahead in charge of  the horses, with the greater number of drivers. We had everything  at Beira, and were landed on the  beach, to find thafc we had to take  the horses two and a half miles  into the country.  "Beira is a dirty sand beach of  twelve years' standing. Dirty  Portuguese and bars seem to be  the mainstay of the town. I "entrained the horses during the afternoon on to small cars on a two-foot  gauge   railway,   four  horses in a  car. It was a hard job to get the  big horses iu. 'After a very, hard  day's work we were shipped, off tb  Bamboo creek,- time ".not being  given us to go to the' ship to get  our greatcoats or something to eat.  After remaining all night in a dirty  coach and the men in a dirty car  we reached Bamboo creek the next  morniug aboufc 8. The mosquitoes  were very bad, but did not annoy  me as much as the Englishmen.  The box cars were all closed iu  tight, so that the tsetse fly could  not get at the horses. The men  suffered very much, as they were  right in the open."  The second section is dated May  2nd.   It says:  "We got to Bamboo creek about  8 o'clock in the morning following.  We entrained again into the broader  gauge cars (four feet), about fourteen horses to a car, and ifc was a  job to get that many:in. I have to  leave about forty horses here with  a^hon-commissioneoL^officer^and^a,  few men, as they-could not give, me  enough cars to take them all. I  and thirty-two men piled ourselves,  with a lot of supplies, into an open  car, and left at 1 o'clock. We  traveled all day arid all night until  we got to Umtali, at about 2 p.m.  the next day (the 25).  "We were in fear of our lives  every moment that we would go  off the track, as the curves and  hills are something dreadful and  continuous, and they say it is quite  usual" to be ditched aboufc four  times in a day's run. These hills  and curves are almost continuous,  and the wretched brakes they have  on work very badly, our train running away twice iiTspite of them.  This is not a pleasant sensation, especially as everything was pitch  dark, the only light on the whole  train being an oil smudge used by  the engineer. However, we were  lucky in being stopped about 2 a. m.  until 5 on the road, so we got some  sleep.  ''We detrained again at Umtali,  watered and fed and walked the  horses a bit���poor brutes, they  were all kicked and hacked to  pieces.

They,  however, have taught the r-ailway  people here a lesson, as there was  not a car that you could not see  daylight where they had kicked the  boards off, and some of them very  near the roof of the car. too. We  had to wait until two cars which  had been cut off caught up. to us  and unload and attend to a second  lot."  Captain Irving tells   about the  march that is before him of 300'  miles to Buluwayo, where he conducted the section with no other  officer: 5  "The reason why I have been leffc  with all this is that they are in such  a rush to get up.to the front, .where  Plumer is in a bad way, that they  have sent the other sections along,  the men by coaches and the guns  and wagons by mules. They have  been going away in batches like  this'for the lasfc three days, the  men jammed into a tumble-down  Deadwood coach drawn by sixteen  mules. The contractor has to transport each batch 300 miles in three  aud one-half days. Of course he  can't do it, and 1 have even bet him  a bottle.of beer thafc I will beat him  with my lot, having to march the  whole Avay.

GRAY, Baker:sl, Kootenay: Representative  CITY LOCAL NEWS  Twentj'-fivo men arc now doing  station woik on the connection between llie C. P. It. and the N. & F.  S. in Fairview. It is figured that  the section will be completed in  ten days. While no official statement has been issued rit is believed  that tracklaying on the Balfour extension is to be commenced on the  completion of* this section which  Will enable the steel to be laid from  the Nelson end of the track. To  finish the track will take a couple  of months and gi\re employment to  about 120 tracklayers, surfacers and  ballasters. ��� ���_ _��� '  One of the leading . wholesalers  handling tinned butter for the use  of prospectors states that up to the  present time the demand for this  article has been unusually light and  very much below the demand, in  former years; This is regarded as  an indication that comparatively  few prospectors have gone into the  hills so far.  Porter Brothers, the contractors  who built the C. P. R. slip at Procter, expect to start today on the  trestle at Nine-mile Point which is  to carry the Balfour Extension over  Nine mile creek. The trestle will  be (550 feet iu length and will take  a couple of weeks to build.  Charles Plowman was in Nelson  yesterday from Kaslo, and brought  good reports from Camp Mansfield.  The crosscut tunnel on the Crescent  has tapped the vein which proves  to be seven feet wide. On the Twin  Lakes a tunnell has been driven in  on the vein ������which has been recently crosscut showing the ��� ore  body to have widened out to 14  feet. Both these claims belong to  the Anglo-French Syndicate represented by Ernest;Mansficld.  At the city council last night  mayor Houston reported that the  health officer had directed his attention to the prevalence of typhoid fever and suggested, as a  possible cause that dairymen'  washed milk cans in streams where  the water might be impure. The  council agreed thataneffort should  be made to do away with any possible contamination from this  source and the press was requested  to make a special note of the  matter  The street railway's "turn-out"  is practically finished, and the car  service will be' much improved  thereby.  The tug Ymir resumed her regular trips to the Landing last night  under the command of captain Tyson. The Procter will be tied up  for the present.  Lance Gilchrist, a small boy employed at the Nelson Ne.ws depot  was run over yesterday at the corner of Stanley and Baker streets.  The lad was riding a -bicycle and  was run down by Hudson's Bay  Stores' delivery wagon. He was,  renderedunconscious and was carried into the Canada Drug Company's store, where he soon recovered. The bicycle was damaged  considerably.  Yesterday's entries at the mining  recorder's office were: Certificates  of work, to W. M. Griffith on the  Fidelity, Bunker Hill and Sullivan,  to T.'M. Iiixeu on the Lord Nelson,  to R."J. Elliott, ou the Britisher and  Red Bird, to John Greenhill, on the  Sunnyside, Apache aud Manervey;  Transfers, the Referee mineral claim  at the head of Barrett creek, by  Frank Simpson to Edmund Clark,  a quarter interest in the Colling-  wood on Hall creek by T.

An employee of the Ymir mine  named Roman was brought to the  general hospital yesterday suffering  from severe internal injuries, caused  by being crushed across the abdomen between two heavy timbers.  Roman suffered great pain but it is  thought that his injuries are not of  a serious nature.  J.  Coxhead,   who  has  the   contract for  the  Turkish  bath  house  on Vernon street, next to the Lake-  view hotel, expects to start work  on the buildings within a few days,  or as soon as some necessary grading is done on the lot.   The building is being erected by Mrs. Ford  of this city for a tenant, and will  cost complete about $3500. It will  probably be ready for occupation  by_August 15th.  ~^A quiet wedding was celebrated  in the city yesterday when Miss  Keadleston of Cody became the  wife of Dr.- W. E. Gom'm of Sandon.  The ceremony wa.s performed by  Rev. father. Cote, curate of the  church of Mary Immaculate. Dr.  and Mrs. Cb'iniii are registered at  the Iiotel Hume.  A. B. Stickney of St. Paul, Minnesota, and a party of five ladies are  registered at the Hotel Phair. Mr.  Stickney is president of the Chicago & Great Western railroad,  and is touring over the C. P. R. as  the guest of the management. The  party came ;to Kootenay Lauding  in their private, car, which was sent  to Bonner's Ferry, and from there  to Spokane, from where it comes  north and will be regained here by  Mr. Stickney.  J. C. McLagan of the Vancouver  Worhl was in Nelson yesterday. J.  C. left the Coast several days ago  on a holiday'jaunt, and reports his  health as very much improved in  the higher altitudes. During the  recent campaign Mr. McLagan was  a stout champion of ex-premier  Martin. He says the campaign developed many remarkable combinations. For' years he had been  looked upon as the practical godfather of Dick McBride, but in the  recent campaign they worked at  cross purposes, and now the young  fellow is Hon.
