 DAILY  EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  tribune  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH  YEAR  NELSON: SATURDAY MORNING JUNE  23  1900.  PRICE FIVE CENTS  u  FOOTBALL PRACTICE CAME  Notes on Athletics.  The practice football match ab  tlio recreation grounds last night  proved to be an interesting game,  iuic.1 while the play might havo  been improved upon in many respects, it sufficed to demonstrate  the team's weaknesses and to give  the players a first-class practice.  The ball was kicked off at 7:15, the  teams lining up as follows:  I'lC'ICUD TKAM. Itl-Uil'I.AI'K.  Miinroe Goal Smith  Worth Hack  l.M'11 (captain)  1 ty nes Uaisk Fisher  w. II. Morrison.... I laltUack Ifodgo  Vaiisloiie(Captain).   "       '*      I'laney  lrwiu     "       "      Montgomery  Kite  Forward Siortdart.

The teams played  half an  hour  oach way aud  the  play  was last  throughout.    The players, were duel inccV to play olTsido, and although  the   referee   did   not   detect ' this  feature, there were half-a-dozen offsides on each sjde.    No goals were  scored.     Various free and corner  kicks were placed in splendid style,  but the forwards did nob seem to be  strong at critical points.     The club  must improve in combination tactics  before the Kaslo game, and bhe forwards,    while    conscientious    ancl  finite aware  of  the  necessity for  team pjuy, have  not yet acquired  the knack of passing  at  the  right  moment. Games such as last night's  are of considerable value in developing team play and  it is  probable  that another game will be arranged  nexb   week,    particularly   as    the  picked team were  disappointed in  securing  a couple   of   strong forwards  whom  they   believe  would  have turned the scale in their favor.  Rev. William Munroe m;ide his first  appearance   on   the  field for   the  season,  playing goal.      Ho distinguished   himself several  times  byv  saving his goal aud raising the ball  over the 25-yard mark from a serim-  :<mage.    Wallack  got "a  nasty cut  over the left eye iu a collision with  Dr. Morrison.  A new candidate for honors in  the long distance running contests  on Dominion Day has loomed up in  the person of Wallack, who played  in-last night's football team. Wallack has been exercising with George  Nunn for several nights, and if he  enters the races at the celebration  he will probably surprise some of  his opponents. Jt is stated that he  has competed in England against  Bacon, the amateur champion, and  hits won a long string of prizes on  various occasions. Auy man who  is in Bacon's class is a cracker-jack  and Nelson runners should buckle  down to business if they are to  hold their own.  impaired. The Vedette can raise a  good deal more steam than her engine can utilize, so that it is somewhat difficult to say how fust she  can move, probably her owners do  not know accurately themselves.  The Pretoria has a larger propeller  than she ever carried before and  may prove to be speedier than is  generally thought. The Fern also  has a new propeller, which is expected to improve her speed materially. The Mischief, if given a  thorough overhauling, would never  cross the line at the tail end of the  procession, and the Oriole is altogether an unknown quantity, lt  will thus be seen that a race between the launches would be well  worth witnessing, and it is to be  hoped the event can be pulled off, if  not during the demonstration then  at some date in the near future.  The challenge cup donated last  year by the Kootenay Cigar Manufacturing Company for bicycle  races is on exhibition in Jacob  Dover's window. The conditions  attached to the trophy are that it  must be won three years before  becoming private property. At  last year's celebration Charles Hip-  person carried of the trophy, but  he is out of the city this .summer.  Three annual wins is almost too big  a string to tie to a cup in a non-  bicycling city like Nelson. If a  man could retain it after two successive victories more interest  might be taken in the contest.  Tho baseball club got away for  Spokane in good style yesterday  morning with a strong contingent  of followers. The results of today's  game are to be received by innings  over the wires as the match progresses, and will be announced at  the Manhattan saloon.  The backdown of the Greenwood  .club over the proposed visit of the  Nelson Lacrosse Club-has lef t~~th~e~  homo team in a quandary. It is of  course impossible under the eircum-  staucee to bring Greenwood here  for a game on July 3rd as was contemplated, and the intervening time  is altogether too short to arrange  for another team to come here.  This is most regrettable, for. the  fast Macleod twelve could doubtless have been secured for a game  had the -management felt dubious  about the Greenwood match materializing. A meeting is to be held  next week, of which ample notice  will be given, and the matter of the  club's policy for the balance of the  season will be gone into. It has  been suggested that by dividing  the fast men and recruiting new  material three city teams could be  organized and a city league formed  which would keep up interest in  the pastime. Otherwise there  seems to be no alternative than  to let the game go by the board for  the season at least. Many of the  lacrosse enthusiasts, needless to  state, are mo3t averse to this course  aud will make a strong effort to  keep the game to the fore iu the  hope that the revival of interest  which seems to have struck the  eastern towns and cities will reach  Nelson by next season.  It is stated that the fast steam  yacht Oriole will be brought from  Trail to Nelson for the summer.  The Oriole has the reputation of  being a flyer. There are the elements of a splendid launch- race in  Nelson, and every sportsman would  like to see the little steamers come  together. The Flirt is undontedly  the fastest of the lot were she in  first-class trim, but it is generally  understood that she has nofc received the best of treatment, and  her effectiveness may be seriously  SIR HENRI JOLY SWORN IN  Mclnnes Not Pitied.  Ottawa, June 22.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���Lieutenant - governor" Mclnnes was officially notified  today that he'was dismissed. There  is but one opinion expressed here  on the subject and that it was well  deserved. Had he dismissed Dunsmuir, Turner aud Eberts for their  extraordinary conduct in giving in  to the resolution to censure the  man the swore to faithfully serve,  ho might have gained a little in the  public estimation, but he lost that  chance.  Sir Henri Joly was sworn in as  lieutenant-governor in his place,  and M. E. Bernier takes the place  of Joly as minister of inland revenue. Both were sworn into  office today. Chief justice McColl  will act as administrator until Joly  arrives.  The appoin tments were given out  today in the house and the senate,  The Political Tangle.  Victoria, June 22.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���Premier Dunsmuir  received word from Ottawa today  thafc Joly, the new governor, would  leave for Victoria on Monday.  Chief justice McColl has been appointed administrator pro tern.  Writs for the Wells,. Prentice and  McBride by-elections were issued  today, but will not be signed until  McColl reaches here from Vancouver on Monday. The house will  meet on July 10. Eberts is to be  opposed in South Victoria by Sang-  ster, Avhom he defeated in the general election. R. E. Gosnell, formerly of Greenwood, has beeu appointed secretary to the premier.  Galena Prom Boundary.  A new departure has been made  by a Boundary mine and a car of  galena has been sent out to be  treated in the lead stack at Trail,  says the Grand Forks Miner. This  is one of the first, if not the very  first, shipments of such ore sent out  of the district. The City of Paris  over in Central camp is the property  which is making the shipment and  ifc was hauled down to Grand Forks  by wagon and here loaded onto the  cars for the smelter. During the  early development of the property  a considerable showing of galena  was made and subsequent development opened up a good sized lead of  the mineral. It was from this lead  the shipment was made.  Relief of Kumassi.  Prahsu, June 22.���There is no  fresh news to hand from Kumassi,  but the local authorities think that  the relief of the town may now be  effected any day. The casualties of  the relieving forces of all ranks  aggregate 300 already.  GOOD TRADE WITH SLOCAN  Wholesalers' Shipments.  Yesterday's shipments by the local wholesalers covered a wide territory.

Procter's houseboat,  which will be occupied by Mr. and  Mrs. Procter in a few days. He  will have the craft towed to a point  near the end of tho street-. car line  and anchored there for a couple of  months at least.  The proposition to form a salvage  corps in connection with the local  fire department which was mooted  after the Burns fire seems to have  fallen through. Alderman Irvine,  who had the matter in hand, wrote  to the insurance underwriters' association and received a reply stating that the plan would be laid before the board. Since then nothing whatever has been heard.  Robert Bullick was charged at  Fernie on Thursday with having in  four instances obtained money  under false pretenses from Chinamen, and of having stolen moneys  collected by him as licenses. The  latter charge was dismissed, and on  the first four counts defendant was  committed for trial. P. E. Wilson  appeared for the crown. Bullick  was released on two sureties of $100  each.  Thursday was a record breaker  with the street car. company. During the day 2000 fares were collected, which is the best day's business the company has yet had.

Sergeant Knight will be present to  instruct the company in Maxim  gun drill and the order for the drill  is imperative."  Sending Reinforcements.  Washington, June 22.���The administration is endeavoring to stimulate the dispatch of troops and  naval reinforcements to China to  meet the emergency at Tien Tsin.  Reports that have been received  over night at the navy department,  bufc which are temporarily withheld  from publication, are, it is believed,  confirming the reports from Europe  _of the need of reinforcements for  the international forces atTTierT  Tsin. It is understood that low  water in the Pei. Ho river is preventing fche naval vessels at Taku  from going to the assistance of the  small force in Tien Tsin, and it  is probable thafc no boat drawing  more water than a torpedo boat can  get that far up the river. In that  case, the purpose of the navy department in hastening the gunboat  Nashville and the old Monocacy to  Taku has been in part defeated for  even with their light draft, it is  improbable they could ascend the  Pei Ho as far as Tien Tsiu  during low water. In this  case, the only recourse is in  the use of troops and naval  battalions after. Tho distance  from Taku to Tien Tsin is about 30  miles, but the traveling is bad, and  if there is much opposition, the  journey might occupy several days.  The emergency described in admiral Kerapffs despatch led the war  department to make an extra-effort  to hurry forward the Ninth regiment from Luzon to Taku. It was  reported by general McArthur  upon the receipt of the original to  send tliese troops to China, that  owing to the break in railway com-  muaication between Tarlac, the  headquarters of the Ninth, and  Manila and the prevalence in  the harbor of a typhoon it would  probably not be possible for the  troops to get away before the 24th.'  The war department is now. determined that this movement shall be  hastened if it is possible to do so,  and has instructed general Mac-  Arthur in such fashion as to warrant the belief here that the troops  will be ou their way to China not  later than tomorrow evening, thus  saving one or two days on the original calculations.  ROBERTS' NET IS COMPLETE  Strathcona's Horse Praised. .  London, June 23.���3:1;"5 a.m.���  President Steyn's forces in the  Orange River colony are, for the  time being, drawing most of the  attention of lord.Roberts, rather to  the neglect of commandant general  Louis Botha and president Kruger.  The severance between the Transvaal and the Orange River, colony  was completed yesterday., as lord  Roberts said it would be, on the  arrival of general Buller's advance  under lord Dundonald atStanderton.  The wide net around the 0000 or 8000  men uuder Steyn will now.confcract.  Adroit manoeuvring and brisk  fighting are likely to take place,  because it is necessary that- all resistance south of the Vaal cease to  make it safe for a line of communication.  President Kruger's sons, who  surrendered to general Baden-Powell, are back on their farms working peacefully. General Baden-  Powell rode with only 300 men  from Mafeking, and ho made the  last section of the ride to Pretoria  wifch only 35. Lord Roberts met  him in the outskirts of the town  and escorted him to the residency.  General Dewet|s farmhouses have  been burned to the ground by the  British.  General Buller has issued a special order eulogizing the services of  Strathcona's'Horse. Captain Jones  and the brigade from H. M. S. Forte  have been ordered back to their  ship at the admiral's request.  KASLO   LOCAL   NEWS.  Kaslo, June 22.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���Some of the swimmers  of the town are busy at practice,  with a view to entering at Nelson  on Dominion Day.  Sam Sing's laundry caught fire  yesterday morning and visiting insurance men had an opportunity of  seeing how the local volunteer brigade works. The fire lads had the  blaze under control-in a few minutes.  The "boys,"���old and young���  had a great time the other night,  chartered the Alberta and went on  a moonlight excursion to Ainsworth. There were about seventy  jolly good fellows on board and  they had a jolly good time.  Just before Mr. Dunsmuir became  premier he made a provisional arrangement to visit the Slocan. He  is the chief owner of the Noble  Five. His visit has been indefinitely postponed.  The men who were set to work  by order of the Martin government  on tho South Fork wagon road  have been paid off. About $400  was spent ou the road.  It has been learned here that W.  W. Turner, who #was formerly  .editor of the British Columbia News  of this town, has resigned his posi7"  tion as principal of the normal  school afc Cheney, Washington.  A good fall is looked for in this  region. There is some inquiry for  mining properties, particularly in  the Lardo district.  Tho books and documents, for  the Kaslo supreme court registry  have arrived and the court will be  established in a few days. The  court   will   fill  a* long  felt  want.

Washington, June 21.���Immigration inspector W. D. Morse today  notified the commissioner of immigration that he had interviewed  ���the superintendent of construction  of McKenzie, Mann & Co., contractors for building the Mauitoba aud  Southeastern railway in Canada  and the Minnesota and Manitoba  railway in the United States, relative to tho employment of Canadian  laborers iu the United States. At  present operations" are in progress  between Sprague station and the  Minnesota border line. About 100  laborers are employed, 75 per cent  being reported as employees from  the United States and the balance  from Canada. The superintendent  ���has beeu instructed that he could  work his entire gang on this side of  the line as long as their camp remains in Canada, but as soon as ifc  is necessary to remove the camp to  the United States he will be obliged  to discharge his Canadian laborers  and employ only Americans.  Belief Column for Tien Tain.  ��� Lome, June 22.���A dispatch from  Taku, dated yesterday (Thursday),  says : "An international column  consisting of British, Russian and  Japanese troops left Taku this  morning for Tien Tsin. An Italian  detachment, commanded tiy an ensign, will remain here to guard the  Italian flag which,.with the flags of  the other powers, has been hoisted  over the forts.

London, June 23.���The Times  says this morning: "On June 9th  the government of Morocco sent a  formal demand to the French government for European arbitration  of the questions in dispute between  Paris and Tangiers. Morocco contended she possesses a mass of correspondence with the Algerian  Dreis (Turkish government of Algiers before the French conquest of  1830) conclusively proving that the  oasis of Tuatfc (uearly equally distant from Morocco, Algeria, Tunis  and Fessean) formed part of the  Moorish empire and was so recognized by the predecessors of France  in title."

ALL SIZES  may fairly be said that the chief results of the enforcement of the  Manitoba measure Avould be to deprive that province of its revenue  from the liquor trade, lt makes  the retail trading in liquor illegal,  but places practically no restriction  upon, the consumption of liquor ;  and Avithout in any way attempting to enforce an effective prohibition destroys the property and  assets of Avhat was formerly a legitimate trade. Ifc looks like another  prohibition failure.  Bay Stores  This people of Manitoba are becoming very much worked up over  the so called prohibition measure  which     premier     Macdonald   has  caused to be introduced in the provincial legislature.    From  the controversy  Avhich   is   raging  in  the  press, it is apparent that the social  reformers  of the prairie province  have not   yefc progressed   beyond  that stage ^wherein they desire to  make a certain element of the community more virtuous  at the expense of fche   property  values   of  others.    This naturally   created a  strong opposition to the measure,  aud behind those who raise the cry  of Compensation will doubtless be  found many who, Avhile they would  favor  total prohibition,  look with  distrust upon the present measure  -which promises   to breed  all  the  evils of prohibitory legislation and  give none   of   its   advantages.    It  Owing to the immigration policy  of the Laurier government, Avhich  aims  at filling the Great West  up  Avith assisted immigrants from foreign lands, the Conservative government of the prairie province has  found it   necessary   to materially  amend the election laws.    It is now  proposed  that naturalized British  subjects, Avhose  names do  not appear  on  the  present   voters'   list,  shall  be denied the franchise  for  seven years unless they are able to  read  the Manitoba   Act in cither  English, French, German, Swedish  or Icelandic.    No matter how desirable the end sought by the Manitoba legislature may be, it is apparent that the introduction of -any  such legislative   restrictions   upon  the exercise of the {franchise Avill  provoke trouble.    If the aim of the  Conservatives  of   Manitoba   is to  prevent   the   Laurier   government  from filling the West with assisted  emigrants at the expense of Canada  as a Avhole, and then Avorking upon  the sympathies of the people so assisted for political support, ifc might  be  accomplished  in another  Avay.  Why not treat assisted emigrants  in the same manner as annuity or  treaty���Indians-are^treated?=--Why=  nofc disfranchise, all   assisted  emigrants, or others, Avho receive government assistance Avithin a certain  period prior to their application to  exercise the franchise ?  about as much effect in checking  emigration as the Laurier govern-  ment's alien labor law has had in  preventiug the importation of labor  into Canada under contract. The  Liberal ueAVspapers can no" more  justify the framing of Canada's emigration laws in Japan than it could  justify the making of Canada's  tariff in Washington.

The Liberal newspapers are endeavoring    to    find    excuses   for  premier Lauder's failure to grapple  with   the   Japanese    immigration  question.    The Manitoba Free Press  says  there   no   longer   exists  any  necessity for anti-Japanese legislation, because the Japanese government has issued regulations restricting the number of Japanese who  may migrate to fif teen per month.  IL is rather humiliating that Liberal  newspapers should look to the Japanese government for the relief of  British  subjects in British Columbia.    J t would not be well for Liberal newspapers to attempt to advance any such argument in British  Columbia.   British subjects in this  province look to the dominion and  imperial    governments . for   relief.  Though their livelihood may have  been imperiled by Japanese competition they have not yet transferred  their allegiance to the emperor of  Japan.   Nor will they be fooled by  promises that the Japanese government will apply a remedy for their  grievances.    They know that   for  years  there   have   been   Japanese  laws against emigration; and they  know further that they have had  REAL ESTATE AND  INSURANCE AGENTS  -   Largo comfortable bedrooms and  first-clans  dining-room.

In lady Holland's memoirs there  =Js=aX'apibaLst6uy=of=a4*ractieal=jbke  perpetrated at the expense of a raw  Scotch ensign. One evening sir  James Mackintosh came to supper  at the home of the Rev. Sydney  Smith, the great wit and reformer,  bringing with him a Scotch cousin,  an ensign in a Highland regiment.  On hearing the name of his host,  he turned round, and, nudging sir  James, whispered : "Is that the  great Sir Sudney j*" "Yes, yes," said  sir James,much amused, and giving  Sydney Smith the hint, he instantly  assumed the military character,  performed the part of the horo of  Acre to perfection, fought all his  battles over again, and showed how  he had charged the Turks, to the  infinite delight of the young  Scotchman, who Avas quite enchanted with the kindness and  condescension of "the great Sir  Sudney," as he called him, and to  the absolute torture of the other  guests, who were bursting with  suppressed laughter at the scene  before them. Nothing would serve  the young Highlander but setting  oIf at 12 o'clock at night, to fetch  the piper of his regiment to pipe  "fche great Sir Sudney," who said  he had never heard the bagpipes.  Upon this, the party broke up, and  dispersed instantly, for sir James  said his Scotch cousin would infallibly cut his throat if he discovered his mistake. A few days  afterward, when sir James Mackintosh and his Scotch cousin were  walking in the streets, they met the  Rev. Sydney Smith and his wife.  He introduced her, upon wliich the  Scotch cousin said in a low voice to  sir James, and looking at Mrs.  Smith, "I didna ken the great sir  Sudney was married."

DESTRUCTION BY DYNAMITE.  It was repor ted from Son th Africa  that the Boers recently attempted  to destroy a railway tunnel by  starting from the opposite ends two  locomotives, heavily loaded with  dyuamite; that these locomotives  tcollLdecl=atJull=s"peed=miclway=4n=  the tunnel, exploding the dynamite  and, of course, completely wrecking  the engines; but according to a  later dispatch that the resultant injury to the tunnel itself was relatively small, and could be repaired  easily and "rapidly. According to  another report, the official mining  eugineer of the Pretoria government, in charge of the Johannesburg gold mines, said that all the  mines ot the Witwatersrand could  be destroyed in two days by. [the  use of dynamite, if such a step  should become necessary. The surrender of Johannesburg to the British, however, with the mines intact,  disposed of all these reports of contemplated vandalism.  In view of the fact that a proposition to destroy the mines was made  aud actually discussed, it may be  mentioned that "destruction by dynamite" is not so easy and its projectors are accustomed to consider  it. This statement, illustrated already by the experience of anarchists, fenians, strikers and inex-r  perionced miners, seems to have received its latest confirmation in the  railroad tunnel mentioned above.  The fact is, that when the impact  of a dynamite explosion is communicated to a large body of air' (as  was the case in the great Johannesburg explosion five^ years ago) it  may, throught that medium, work  wide-spreak wreck ; but when it is  immediately received by solid  masonry or rock, its energy is largely expended in the molecular work  of local pulverization, being generated too instantaneously, and too  simultaneously throughout the  mass of the charge, to permit its  seeking "lii\es of least resistance,"  Capital Authorized  Capital Paid up  Rest  $2,500,000  $2,468,603  $1,700,000  D, R.

Becent Naval Experiments.  The British ironclad, Belleisle,  built in 1878 and condemned last  year, was. fitted up as a target, and  used in some recent firing exercises  by the channel squadron. Krupp  plates were placed in position upon  ^the-^Belleislef^with^the^result^of  proving that the latest type of  armor is invulnerable' to modern  ordnance, for every shell that struck  the Krupp plates rebounded into  the sea. The value of the fighting  tops in cruisers was also demonstrated for in spite of the splinter  nets, the five pounders in the tops  of the Majestic swept the decks of  the Belleisle, wliich was furnished  with a crew of dummy figures. It  was made quite clear that the explosion of a live shell inside a ship  sets up a volcanic eruption.  Chinese Government Responsible.
