 ���TS.*S'--fWQSaff|  X  DAILY  EDITION   BY  MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO  DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH  YEAR  NELSOK:  TUESDAY MORNING JULY'S J900.  PEICE FIVE CENTS  FIRST DAY OF CELEBRATION  Good Crowd and Good Sports,  The first day of tho celebration  ���was a decided suet-ess. The day  was marred by one or two showers,  but in i^ho'afternoon the sun shone  out strongly, and at no time did  the weather interfere with tho  sports, and everything points to  glorious weather today. The rains  of the previous days prevented the  decoration committee fully carrying out their elaborate program,  but Baker street looked well all the  s-ame, the nulnerous private displays adding to the general effect.  y Nelson did not do quite so well  rjis usual in,the sports with neighboring towuj. They lost the ball  game with Rossland's composite  team, nnd tied with Kaslo at football. The regatta went off very  well, though (he arrangements of  the committee left a good deal to  be desired. Great interest- was  taken in the Winnipeg-Vancouver  race which ended in an easy victory for the former. C. 13. Winter's  crew won the four-oared race.  Large crowds of people witnessed  the various events, and, though the  attendance was well up to the  average, with better weather more  would have been present. Additional crowds of people came in  last night, and today should be a  record breaker1.  The program for today follows:  9:0�� a. iu.���Caledonian sports.  '   100 yard miners'  race   (open   to  .iona iide miners  only).    Prizes $S,  $1.  100 yards open; prizes $10,-$5.  220 yards open; prizes $10, $5.  " '-''���? yards open; prizes $10, $5.

The drilling contest is  scheduled  . for 10 a. m.f and the prizes are a  $100  trophy aud  $100 in  cash for  , the winning team, and $50 in  cash  ' for the second. The junior baseball game between Rossland and  Nelsou  will be pulled   off at   the  .**"> ' *L time.  ! Next in order are the firemen's  races between  Nelson.  Greenwood  ,and Grand "Forks, and both tho  wet test and hub-and-hub race will  be run.  At 2 p. in. the Nelsou ball team  will play a  return  match  against  'Rossland, when they will lower the  visf**or's colors, arid directly after--  ' wards the Nelson association football team will play Silverton. Both  these events take place on the i*ec-  ' creation grounds.  The     trades procession,    with  K  which the day's proceedings opened,  was a great success. Upwards of  five hundred persons were in the  parade, and Nelson's commercial  interests were well to the fore. The  labor unions were out in   strong  /force, and their portion of the procession divided tho honors with the  tcommercial contingent. The floats  vwere not as numerous as last year,  but the business firms who were represented iii this way spared no  1 rouble to make their exhibits tasteful aud handsome. TJie procession  formed uear the post office on Vie-  toria streot, the committee iri charge  being Frank W.  Peters, chairman;  . y*. ��� Chapman,   Will   Irvine,   T.   J.  .; ims and alderman Blake Wilson.  Some difficulty was experienced in  v^etting^ the processiou off on time,  but about 11:30 o'clock a start was  made west on Victoria street. Just  as the parade was about to move an  unfortunate ��� accident occurred,  which robbed the exhibition of one  of its best features. A large float  arranged for school children, two  score of whom wore pretty dresses  and beautiful flowers broke down  and the children had to walk as far  as Baker street, where the mud  compelled them to. take to a street  car. They were led by little Miss  La Bau in the dress of an Egyptian  princess, and the float was unusually good.    General disappointment  ��� **vas caused by the breakdown.  Mayor Houston and alderman  Blake Wilson led the procession iu  a light carriage headed by the Citizen's band 19 strong. Then came  the hose wagon with ten members  of the fire department under chief  Thompson aboard. The wagon was  decorated   with    Irish    flags   and  r/junting, while over all waved the  Union   Jack   and    the    Canadian  Standard with crossed poles.  The first float in the parade was  that of D. McArthur ��fc Co., a huge  contrivance drawn by six horses,  and typical of a drawing room  scene. Handsome curtains artistically draped the sides and the interior was furnished with rich carpets and expensive furniture, with  a piano to givo a finishing touch.  The members of the firm, D. McArthur and James McDonald, with  a dozen guests, were aboard the  float.  Fred Irvine & Co.'s float followed  and made a hit with the spectators.  It was arranged with attractive  fabrics hung on the sides,, and a  centre piece of a large umbrella ornamented with other and smaller  parasols. The design was neat and  well arranged.  The Brackman & Ker Milling  Company's float came next. " It  was drawn by six horses and was  effectively arranged. The design  was tent-shaped and on each side  hung au enormous sack containing  rolled oats. These were flanked by  scores of the smaller sacks in ordinary use.  A grotesque turnout advertising  McDonald's ice cream parlors, with  a couple of Indians aboard followed.'  The,labor unions then made their  appearance, this section being led  by the Salvation Army band. The  Nelson Typographical Union 28  strong came first. They made a  good showing and wore handsome  badges.    -  The  tailors followed  10  strong,  wearing   badges   and   headed   by  their banner.   Then came the members of Nelson Miners'  Union, No.  96, and by an odd coincidence there  were exactly 90 of them in   line.  The miners made a special feature  of   banners,   the   mottoes    being:  "God Save the Queen," Canada, the  Laud We Love," "Canada Is Free,"  "The Maple   Leaf   Forever,"  "The  Friends   of   the   Eight-Hour  Law  Are the True Friends of Labor,"  "1867���1800, Thirty-Three Years of  a Nation," "Eight Hours for Labor;7.  Eight Hours for   Recreation   andr  Improvement,   Eight...,.'Hours, .for  rest."    :The .Sfcc-necutters'.- Union*:  was.next, and-the .members made!  an   effective showing   with   white  aprons worn while at work.  "They  numbered 15.   The bricklayers, also  15 strong, wore their  white trous-  sers and looked smart.     The carpenters and Joiners' Union had  36  representatives in line.   They carried   a  banner with    the   motto,  "Canada, the Brightest Gem iii the  Diadem ��� of   the   British   Empire."  The painters and paperhaugers had  one of the best turnouts in the line.  The members, 14 iu all, wore their  working clothes, spotless for the occasion, and carried their brushes,  scissors, paint pots aud other essentials of the trade.   After this came  the municipal band and the Nelson,  commercial   travellers, who  numbered 28, and Avore long lineri dusters with red and   white felt   hats.  The commercial men were one of  tjiej'eatur.es^of^the^parade.  J. A. Say ward & Co's. float, representing the various classes of  woodwork turned out by the firm,  to   Weda ��� McDonald;  Harold Cameron.  for   boys to  was next, followed by the Reisterer  & Co.'s wagon and the Hazelwood  Dairy turnout.  A batch of banners preceded  Thorpe & Co.'s float, which was a  clever display of the bottled goods  manufactured by the firm. At the  rear was a bottling machine with  which an operator was filling bottles for the benefit of the small  boys. The float was tastefully arranged. The managers and representatives of the leading wholesale  houses doing business iu Nelson  came next. Hyde &. Titsworth's  delivery wagon was also in line.  The Laborers Protective Union  followed, 84 strong. They carried  their implements of labor and bore  the lodge charter framed in flowers.  A contingent of five decorated  bicycles wound - up the parade.  Among the other features were the  two Hume Hotel bears conducted  byScotty McCandlish and a. grotesque horseman advertising the  attraction at the opera house.  The judges on the procession were  H. B. Thompson, 150-mile house,  Cariboo, L. Godbolt, Montreal and  David J. Dyson, Winnipeg. They  viewed the parade from the corner  of Baker and Josephine street, after  which the following award award  was made:  Industrial floats���First prize, D.  McArthur & Co.; second, Fred Irvine & Co.  Labor unions���First prize, Miners' Union; second, Painters & Paperhaugers.  Grotesque feature���J. McDonald's  exhibit.  Decorated bicycle���Prize for girls  The regatta started yesterday  afternoon and it was not until 3  o'clock that the first event, the local four-oared race, was pulled off.  MeLeod's Hudson's Bay crew rowed  George Beer's Rifle corps crew. The  latter had bad luck, breaking a  slide early in the race, with the result that the Hudson's Bay crew  came in practically alone. The  crews were:  Rifle Corps���G. S. Beer, stroke;  Hunter, 3; Downey, 2; McHardy  bow and Johnnie Bannerman, cox.  Hudson's Bay���N. T. . MeLeod,  stroke; Fisher, 3; McAdam, 2; Dynes,  bow, and Tom Gallon, cox.  There were only two entries for  the single sculls, R. G. Joy and  Roach, the race resulting in a victory for the former.  The next heat of the local four-  oared race did not produce an exciting contest, Winters' crew winning easily by four lengths. Ford's  crew made a sprint in the lost quarter of a mile, but stroke, who was  short of condition, could not keep  it going, aud they died away to  nothing.   The crews were:  C. B. Winter, stroke; Hickling, 3;  Beaven, 2; Curtis, bow, and .Hugh  Gallon, Cox.  Ford, stroke; McCrae, 3; Wetmore,  2; Hervey, bow, and V. Gallon, cox.  There were six entries for the  swimming race; Williamson, Ewart,  West, Polluck, Isherwood and de  Beddy. The course was from  Hale's boat house to the city wharf,  and Isherwood won an exciting race  in good style by inches.  The ladies' sculling race brought  out four fair competitors, Miss Sibbald winning rather easily from  Mrs. Whalley, Miss Gurd and Miss  Flora Macdonald.  The double canoe race Vfas very  easily won by Winter and^Haines,  who seem invincible iri fjbhjte race.  The other two canoes had'a most  desperate and exciting race for second place, Beaven and Curtis beat-  /iifig. McCrae and Dick McFarlandby  .less than a foot.  The final heat of the ,.four-oared  .race_ was not exciting. Winter's  crewliacTit"airtheir own way; and  won as they liked by about six  lengths. The losers, stroked .by N.  'T. MeLeod, rowed a very plucky  race, but they were quite outclassed.  The entries for the double sculling race with lady coxswains were:  Haines and Wetmore, coxed by  Mrs. J�� W. Spring; Beaven and Winter, coxed by Mrs. Buchanan; Ast-  ley and Ford, coxed by Mrs. Astley;  Day and Tuck, coxed by Mrs. Cannon, and G. Hodge ��� and Spring,  coxed by Mrs. Hodge. After a good  race Mrs. Astley's crew beat Mrs.  Buchanan's crew by a length, Mrs.  Hodge's boat coming in third.  Then came the. race of the day,  the four-oared race, mile and a half  straightaway, between Winnipeg  and Vancouver. Both crews had  many friends when they pulled out  Jnjtheir=shells,=theAVinnipeggers=in=  a paper shell and their opponents  in a cedar. Both crews were fine  looking men, but the Winnipeg  men seemed in better condition.  They looked trained to the hour,  and the race bore out'their looks.  The two crews got away on even  terms, but Winnipeg soon began to  forge ahead, and were clear of the  Vancouver crew before they Jgot  half way. The last quarter of a  mile was a. procession. Rowing in magnificent style the Winni-  peggers' crossed the" line in 8:23/t-  minutes, which is said to be a record for British Columbia, and is |  only eight seconds behind the  world's record, the Vancouverites  being about five lengths behind.  The Winuipeggers finished strongly,  but the Vancouverites seemed very  tired. Con. Riley's stroking for  Winnipeg was specially admired,  and he was splendidly backed up  by his crew.   The crews were :  Winnipeg���0. S. Riley stroke,  H. S. Hayes 3, T. E. Hamber 2, and  F. A. Bole, bow-  Vancouver ��� T. . R. Springer,  stroke, H.E. Springer 3, C. B. Wors-  nop 2, and A. D. Scott boAv.  In the triple canoe race Winter,  Beaven and Curtis beat Curtis,  Hughes and Hamber. There were  four entries in the. barrel race,, but  nobody could navigate ;> his craft  past the judge's boat. Eventually  Hervey of Vancouver was given  the prize over Winter, Curtis and  Beaven. This closed the regatta.  T. G. Procter judged the races  from his houseboat moored to the  end of the' city wharf. H. Playford  started the four-oared races and H.  Sblous the other events. E. C.  Brown was charged with the re-  BOSSLAWD'S FIRST VICTORY  Another Game 'Today.  The Rossland ball team defeatad  Nelson yesterday in the first game  of the celebration series. The game  was lost by poor work in the field.  Waters pitched a splendid game  but costly errors put the game out  of his reach. Partridge was the  only Nelson man to distinguish  himself at the bat, good work on  the part of Rosslarid's outfield  shutting off long flies^ which were  sent out by Houston -and Waters,  while Rockenfield had-'an off day.  The " Rossland men' commenced  their run-getting iri rtheir half of  the second. Wibh ...one man gone  Russell drew a charity from Waters  and immediately -stole second.  Gibson's hit advanced him to third  and he scored on a J passed ball,  Waters failing to shut him off at  the plate on Houston's'return.  Two runs were added in the  fourth. Shea, the -first man up,  was sent to first on balls' and travelled to third on Houston's overthrow of Russell's third strike;  Gibsori made'a sharp infield hit and  got first on fielder's choice, on which  Shea scored. - Rhodes and Fay got  in timely hits, but Gibson got shut  out at the plate, the .base-runners  advancing. Fay then forced Rhodes  off third, and by slow-work on the  part of Nelson's infield' Rhodes was  , permitted to score.. With Fay at  third Nefszger made;a short hit to  Rockenfield and retired the side.  An error by Partridge permitted  two more runs to be added " to the  visitors' score in -the fifth'. With  two men gone he dropped an easy  return of Davy's short infield hit.  Davy advanced to. second on a  passed ball. Shea was. given first  on balls arid travelled - to second.  Davy stole second arid on Houston's  overthrow both he arid Shea scored:  The sixth innings-rietted another  two runs and completed the Rossland score. .Gibson';-.' She first man  -.up, knocked up.a shoct foul, "which  Waters '��riedJj^r>anU''".'m��sed.-:: He  then redeemed'himsjelf by-striking  the batter out in one-tw'o-three  order. Rhodes, the second man,  drew a; base from-Waters. Fay advanced him with a hit. Nefzger  got first on fielders' choice, filling  the bases. Erbe followed with a  short hit, which Water's returned  and shut Rhodes out at: the plate  on a very close decision^. Vaughn  made a short hit to third, on which  Fay scored, and the batter got first  on an error of Blackwood's. Nefzger crossed the plate on a wild  pitch by Waters, after which Davy  again retired his team by a short  hit to Rockenfield.  Nelson got four ciphers for their  first four innings. "VVifcli Mills and  Houston retired in the first, Partridge got in a hit and got second  on an error by Vaughan. ' Waters  went out on a hit to second, how-  eveivalid"Pa7tTidgT��~was tillable  played iu Nelsou was the work of  umpire McKeown, a member of  Stanford University team. He was  called upon to give several close decisions, and his verdict in every instance was received with almost  universal approval. This added  greatly to the enjoyment of the  game from the spectator's point of  view.   The score is appended:  NELSON*. A.B.

Nelson did not reach first again  until the fourth inning, when, with  Houston out, Partridge got in'a  two-base hit. Waters was unlucky  enough to go out on a foul fly near  third. Rockenfield succeeded iu  getting first on balls, and with two  men on the bags, Phair shut out  the possibility of a score with a fly  to left, which was gathered iu by  Erbe.  In their half of the fifth, by the  assistance of Nefszger, a timely'hit  by Partridge and au error by  Rhodes iu right field, three Nelson  men crossed the plate. Blackwood,  tho first man up, got first ou a  scratch hit and a close decision.  Neelands then weut out on a pop  fly to Gibson. Worth, the third  man, was struck by Nefszger and  presented with a base. This performance was repeated when Mills  came to bat, and the bases were  filled. Houston, the next man up,  missed a chance to help his batting  average, going out on a fly to second. With two men gone and the  bases full Partridge sent a hot  grounder into right field. The  Rossland man fumbled it, and before it was returned Partridge had  travelled to third and the Rossland  score was tied.  Bad coaching prevented scoring  in Nelson's half of the sixth. With:  two men out Blackwood got first  on an error third. Neelands and  Worth got in hits, but Blackwood  was caught at the plate on a throw  in from right field. Three ciphers  represented Nelson the remaining  three innings, and the game closed  with an easy win for Rossland.

Paris, July 2.���In the chamber  of deputies today, M. Deleasse, the  minister of foreign affairs, announced that he had received a  dispatch today from the French  consul saying that the director of  Chinese railways had received the  news that the minister of a great  power had been assassinated at  Pekin, and that the other ministers  wero in peril. M. Deleasse added  that he hoped tho ' latter news'  would prove untrue. France, thus  far, he continued, had been weakly  represented among the international forces, but troops from Ton-  qttin wero arriving On the scene,  and the French admiral would soon  have 3000 men, while with the arrival of the other troops on their  Wiiy, France, within a month, will  have a force proportionate to Imposition iu China.   *  League Games.

London, July 3, 3:30 a. m.���The  allies are not advancing for the relief of Pekin. This announcement to  the" house of commons by William  St. John Broderick, under secretary  of state for foreign affairs, was received with exclamations of astonishment and dismay. :  Sir Ellis Ashmead-Bartlefct inquired if any information had .been  received from the legations at Pekin as to the composition and command of the relieving force and its  present position.  Mr. Broderick read the dispatch  received today and said the total  allied force available is about  15,000, as troops have been" rapidly  arriving, adding: "We do not yet  know what arrangements have  been made really regarding the  command of an expedition, but it  has not yet been thought possible  to extend a further advance. The  consuls have been in communication with the viceroys in the Yang  Tse region, and the*r are quite  aware that support will be given  them by her majesty's government  in preserving order."  The words from the message of  von Bergen, member of the German  legation at Pekin, countersigned by  sir Robert Hart, inspector-general  of customs and dated iiine ' days  ago, "are the theme of all'-private  comment..' They are.;preparing.for  news.of,a frightful" tragedy..,v;Nine  days ago.the ainmn nitiori'ofj'the-garr  rison defending the foreigners was  running short, and their food was  exhausted, while around them was  a-horde of Kansu braves, having at  their service Krupp guns and repeating rifles.  Last night St. Petersburg was informed over the Siberian wire that  the destruction of the Russian railways in Manchuria continues, and  it seems not improbable that Russia will be fully occupied for a time  in suppressing the- insurrection  among its Chinese- subjects and  may be unable to send more troops  immediately to Taku. The powers  look more and more to Japan to  supply the force necessary at once  to grapple with the rebellion.  Italy Wants Nothing.  Rome, July 2.���In the chamber  of deputies today the marquis Vis-  conti Venosta, minister of foreign  affairs, outlined the policy of the  government in China. He said:  "Harmony betAveen the powers has  never ceased since united action  was taken. If the nearest nations  arrived on the scene first they  acted in the common interest.  Italy, thus far, has not sent any  soldiers, but it would soon have  seven ships with increased crews  able to disembark landing parties,  It would not only be out of place in  the present circumstances to speak  of Italy's partition views, but ifc is  necessary to add that we have absolutely no idea of seeking in the  present events an opportunity to  secure a foothold in China.   :  NAMED AS VICE-PRESIDENT  Several Are After It.  Kansas City, July 2.���-The vice-  presidential    situation     has    not  cleared up during the day, and tonight it is as much in doubt as it    ���  was when the delegates to the na- '  tional   convention arrived.   There  was a shifting of the scene today  When Benjamin Shively of Indiana    *  was taken out of the race by his  emphatic statement to the Indiana  -  delegation, and not only the Indiana men, but other delegates in the ..  city accepted the statement of Mr.  Shively, and he is not now consid:  ered a probability in the race.  As   the    contest    stands  . after  Shively's retirement, the two lead-  _-.  ing candidates seem to be Charles  Towne and' William   Sulzer, with '  some   man   from  New York   like '  judge Van Wyck or Elliott Dans-  forth, as a possibility under certain  conditions.    If there is a simple reaffirmation   of   the   Chicago platform, some New York man may be   .*  selected for vice-president .in  the  ���'-.���  hope that he will carry New York.'-" *  It is conceded by all the Democratic leaders that Towne's strength'.  is in the west and on a silver plat- ���' '-.  form, and would not be strong in -. .--/,  the   east on'1' a irio'dified  platform. '���. 7  While it - is not a certainty that <   *  Towne would be nominated even if  there was a specific 10 to 1 declara--  tion,  it is generally   believed   his  chances would be greatly improved " '  by such action, and his friends* are   ' ���"  making every effort to bring about  that result in the convention.  There is   a great   deal   of   tftlk ^ -'  about ex-senator D. B. Hill in connection   with the  vice-president i.-il _ .  nomination.

Kansas City, July 2.���The dominating influence of Mr. Bryan o��er  the convention had been made perfectly manifest, causing some concern, and just a little rebellion in  some quarters. It is not by tiny  authoritative or formal words or  actions by him that this influence  is exerted, but iu other ways it is  none the less effective.  Ottawa Notes.

It is  very  much like the half-hearted measure  which colonel. Baker introduced in  the   British   Columbia   legislature  some years ago.    To be of any real  service a conciliation  and  arbitration measure must- be compulsory.  Disputes   which   are   adjusted by  voluntary conciliation or arbitration can   be   settled  without the  assistance of legislation.    What is  required is legislation for the settlement   of. disputes   between   labor  and  capital,- which, owing  to the  obstinacy of the   parties  directly  concerned, do not admit of an easy  settlement. __ What   is wanted   is  legislation' which   will    recognize  that communities, in- wliich strikes'  occur, being affected thereby, have  a right to a voice in bringing about  a settlement.'   Compulsory arbitration has been successfully adopted  ^h"lSew;Zealahd. . lt~has f ulfillecTair  the expectations' of its advocates.*  The half measure which is now before the house of commons  has but  one significance.    It goes to show  that the  Laurier. government has  not the moral courage to meet the  demand for  conciliation and arbitration as the interests of the country require_tha^itshoukl_be met.  Ilf* Nelson is to be the town in  the interior of British Columbia to  which the people of the whole  country can be attracted to witness  sports out of the ordinary, tho city  must: be made attractive. The condition of her streets at present do  not give the visitor a good impression cither of the town or its people. Yesterday morning Baker,  the ��� leading business street of the  town, was little better than a mud-  puddle from end to end; yet it is  the one street on which people congregate to witness parades, to s*ee,  and be seen. Baker street must be  permanently improved.  Nelson and Kaslo Play a Tie.  The first football match of the;  season was that   between Nelson  and Kaslo on the celebration program for last night.     The teams  only natural as the visitors have  beeu in constant practice since  May 1st. To offset the Kaslo's team  play, Nelson had a marked advantage in weight and this served to  break up the Kaslo combinations  and place the teams on an equality.  The ball was on the move constantly from end to end. Both  teams had opportunities to score,  but the Kaslo forwards shot wild  and the Nelson forwards did the  same. After 20 minutes play Duu-  cau scored for Nelson but the referee's whistle had sounded a moment before and the goal did not  count. Captain Reid injured his  leg and had to leave the. field. Outside of this there were uo accidents  and the game was most friendly.  When time was called the score  was* still a blank. The plaj*ers  were:  XIXSON" KASLO  JIunroc Goal .T.

Yesterday was  Nelson's off day, but the Nelson  boys have no reason to feel ashamed  of their record. They have won  three games out of five from . the  best teams that could be pitted  agai'nstthem.  Baseball in. Nelsou will soon be  placed "upon a good footing. The  fencing of . the recreation grounds  will make this possible. Heretofore  a few patrons of the sport have  been obliged to foot ��� all financial  obligations. From now on those  who witness the games will assist.  .Partridge made an error at first  yesterday which accounted for  two of Rossland's runs; but then  he made one hit wliich accounted  for the only three runs which Nelson made.  error column yesterday do not of-  fend very often.

The frequent" ���'. rumors of Mr.  Tarte's retirement from the government indicate nothing more than  that his indiscretions do not give  universal satisfaction, among the  Liberals of Quebec, much as his  ability- and energy-are extolled, by  .liis friends in Ontario.

It was held under  the auspices of the celebration committee for the purpose of entertaining the guests of the eity, and  it proved a great success. Mayor  Houston occupied the chair and introduced an enjoyable program iu  which a specialty was made of singing familiar airs with rattling  choruses. Solid and liquid 'refreshments were served, the Vancouver aiid Winnipeg crews using  the cups presented to them for  yesterday's race. The crews were  enthusiastically toasted.

The effect was heightened by the  displays in store windows whicli  were arranged with taste and care.  The Burns block was conspicuous  with an electric sign over the Burns  store which could be read a block  away. In the window was an  unique exhibit of dressed and  fro/.en meats which excited considerable interest.  One of tho most novel and  attractive windows in the city was  that of the Hudson's Bay grocery store. It was hung witli flngs  and bunting, the center piece being  a large Union Jack done wholly in  flour. At one corner, within a  wreath of green, were the names of  Hodgins, Lee, Paterson and Dickson, Nelson's representatives on the  first Canadian contingent, followed  by the word "Paardeberg."  Martin O'Reilly & Go." were to  the front with a neat window representing a marine scene, backed  by a horseshoe in colored lights..  P.

Such a complete  outfit  caused  some  surprise  among  the   visitors.      Morrison &  SjCaldvVell had their window paved  with Mogul  tea and draped  with  bunting.    H. Byers & Co. exhibited  a   fine   stock   on a colored background, the whole being decorated  with  bunting. _ Jacob Dover used  bunting to ornament his  window,  and the colors  were most artisti  cally draped and arranged.  The Western Mercantile Company had a neat and striking window. The space was laid out as a  flov* er garden with real grass and  plants. In the centre was tho  figure of a British soldier on a pedestal. ���  .v  Stieet car No. 3 was ablaze with  colored incandescent lamps from  end to end with flags_ and bunting  on the deck. ;���",'���'  The Hotel Phair should be awarded the honors for decorating.
