 DAILY  EDITION   BY.MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO  DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSON:  WEDENSDAY MORNING JUNE 27-J900.  PRICE FIYE  CENTS  W1NN1PECCER8' FIRST SPIN  .     - -      -   *  '.x Various Sporting News.  The Winnipeg crew went ont for  a trial spin for the iirst time yesterday afternoon. Their paper shell  had not been damaged in auy way  by the railway journey, and  though the lake was rather rough  they had a satisfactory spin. They  were loud in their praises of the  course, and said that the water  here is more lively than on the Red  river. From the glimpse obtained  of them yesterday they seemed a  very fast, well balanced crew. The  Vancouver men will havc to row  i'asc if they are to * come ih-  , ahead in the race next week,  ami their advent is awaited with  "great interest. The Winnipeggcrs,  who, by the way, are meeting several old friends and are making  many new ones, average about 105  pounds iu weight, and are in excellent condition." There are five  men in the party: C. S. Riley,  stroke, II. S. Hayes 3, T. E. Ham-  ber 2, and F. A. Bole, bow. R. C.  U iley accompanies the crew as spare  man and mentor. They intend  taking a spin early this morning  about 0:80 or 7, and again in the  afternoon tit 3 o'clock. The crew- is  registered at the Phair.  J. E. Halton, who has charge of  tho decorating of the streets on  Dominion Day, has.been seeing the  merchants Avitli regard to private  decorations. As usual Nelson business nien-,are rising to the occasion,  and several have announced their  intention of decorating very elaborately. This is especially1 important this year, as owing to the presence of crews from distant points  and their supporters,- there is an  excellent opportunity to show outsiders that Nelsou kuows how to do  the right thing at-the right time.  The Vancouver four which "will  race here next Monday against the  Winnipeggers is made up as follows: F. B. Springer, stroke; H.  .Springer,-3; C.*>A'. Worship, 2; -and  It. Scott; bow.    They are said to be  ) made his debut as stroke of a four,  and won out at the summer regatta  of the club in that year. T. E.  Hamber is probably the oldest hand  at the oar, having been a member  of the club for some years. He is  an all round athlete, being known  in nearly every pure outdoor sport.  Mr. Hayes is the biggest man of the  four, and is generally considered to  be built of the material used for  the giants of old. He rowed with  Marks' .senior crew against the  James Bay four in 1898.  The proposal to reorganize the  Nelson Boat Club on a larger scale  should not be allowed to drop out  of sight. A good boat house is  needed, while upstairs there should  b9 bathrooms and sitting rooms  and also���a ^verandah,,whence wthe  club guests -can~=watch���r.the'  races on regatta days. One shell,  if not two, is also needed if Nelson  is to do anything in the outside  rowing world. After watching  some of the crews at practice one  of the Winnipeg cracks expressed  the opinion that there is ample material here for one if  not two first-class crews. All  that is needed is money.  This can be raised by issuing debentures, and there is no reason  whatever. why it should not be  done with success. It has been  done iu every rowing town in Canada, including Winnipeg, Vancouver aud Victoria. It can also be  done in Nelson.  FRESH OUTBURST EXPECTED  r.y/very fast combination.  The - lacrosse club meeting announced for Monday night did not  materialize owing to the failure of  . members to attend. The . pastime  will be a dead letter until after the  demonstration at least, but a few  of the enthusiasts have hopes that  sufficient interest can be aroused  after that date to hold the club together over the season.  Thefire department racing team  goes to Greenwood this week to  compete.in the hub-and-hub race  and the wet test. It was not definitely decided last night just how  the team would run, but whatever  the arrangement is the Greenwood  and other teams in the competitions  will have to travel close to the record. The home team is running  ^astrarid'it-would-not'surprise^their^  admirers to see some new records  established here on Dominion Day.  Fred Lynch has been distinguishing himself in lacrosse at the Coast.  In a recent game Westminster,  with whom Lynch is playing, defeated Vancouver by six goals to  none. During the game the following incident is reported: "In the  fourth game Lynch of Westminster struck Matheson. Matheson  retaliated with interest: The crowd  rushed on the field, and there was  considerable hard talk, and some  .fighting. Matheson was ruled off  for the match and Lynch for the  game."    The Winnipeg Free Press has the  following to say of the oarsmen  who have arrived in Nelson to row  against the Vancouver four, which  will leave the Coast on Friday:  With "Con" Riley as.stroke, Fred  Bole, bow, "Tommy" Hambler, 2,  and II. Hayes 8, the Winnipeg Rowing Club has what promises to be a  four well able to represent them on  Kootenay lake at the Nelson water  carnival on Monday, July 2nd.. C.  If. Riley has risen from practically  a novice of three years ago to one  of the fastest and steadiest strokes  in the club. His rowing has been,  with the exception of a win at Rat  Portage in 1898, purely local; but  for all that the club have every  confidence in his beiug able to set a  pace before the James Bay and  Vancouver crews that will do him  no discredit. Mr. Bole is one of the  youngest members of the club, but  shows a cool head iu bow, and rows  a clean, neat stroke. He rowed  with   Riley . in   1898, when Riley  HOW TIEN TSIN WAS TAKEN  Admiral Seymour Safe.  CHuiroo, June 20.���The British  and Americans entered Tien Tsin  first, silencing the guns of the  arsenal and breaking through the  Chinese lines, the other foreign  troops were close behind. The Russians lost four killed and 30  wounded. The losses of the other  nationalities were small..-   '   '- -  Admiral Seymour's force is about  ten miles from Tien Tsin. It is  surrounded by Chinese troops and  Boxers, and-hampered by- the presence of sick and wounded. "=>       " *r  It is reported that all foreigners  were sent from Pekin with a weak  Chinese guard, and it is assumed  that they are wifchadmiral Seymour. One thousand Japs are.  landing at Taku, aud 2000 more are  expected tomorrow, when a battalion of French is, also due.

Ashcroft, June 25. ��� Recent  heavy . rains and warm weather  throughout Cariboo have swollen  the Fraser river greater than at  any- time last year. All the bridges  in the Bridge River district and  also on the road to Cache mine  have   been   washed away.    Roads  and trails are impassable. The  water is still rising. The Thompson river here is higher than ifc has  been for two years.  Lillooet, June 25.���The water  has been rising steadily for some  days past. The Fraser, river is  higher than afc any time last year.  All the bridges in this district have  gone and the roads are under water.  Most disastrous results will follow  any further rainfall.

Juue 20.���The National Boer Relief Fund Association, of which Bourke Cockran was  chairman and George W. Van Siclen secretary-treasurer, has concluded its operations and turned-  over its neb collections to the Boer,  envoys, Messrs.

The envoys will sail  for Havre on the steamer L'Aquifc-  aine, Thursday June 28.  Li's Proclamation.  London, June 27. ���The Hong  Kong correspondent of the Times  wires Monday: "Li Hung Chang  officially announces that the presence of foreign troops at the capital is due to the Boxers, and he  urges all sections of the commnnity  in Canton to be ready when the occasion arises to exterminate the  enemies of the country. Numerous  ruffians are entering the British  territory."  Southern Provinces Affected.  London, June 27.���3:45 a.m.���A.  fresh   phase   of  the   situation   in  China is the probability of an immediate   outbreak   in    the    great  southern   provincial centres.    The  populace there is daily assuming a  more hostile attitude toward foreigners,   and   the   latter   perceive  symptoms of a general rising, especially at Nankin, where, according to a dispatch to the Daily .Express dated yesterday, "Kang Wu,  one of the worst enemies of the foreigners, has arrived from the grand  .canal, armed with orders from the  ^empress to "deal with the southern  provinces.   The friendly attitude of  viceroy Liu Kung Cih toward foreigners has brought  him into disgrace with prince Tuang, president  of the Tsung Li Yamen."  The unrest at Canton is described  by a dispatch from that city to the  Daily Telegraph, dated Monday via  Hong Kong, yesterday: "Ifc is  feared that we are on the eve of a  scene of bloodshed and anarchy in  the two Quangs only paralleled during the Tae Ping rebellion. The  signs of a murderous. uprising are  so manifest that wealthy Chinese,  are hurrying from Canton and the  vicinity, taking their wives, families and valuables with'them."  Li Hung Chang Has been again  peremptorily ordered to Pekin. His  enemies declare that they will mur-*  der him before he can reach there.  His presence alone restrains the revolutionary elements here. His departure will let loose the "black  flags" and "red girdles." Knowing  this, Li's trusted officers are sending their families to Hong Kong.  The viceroy himself treats Americans well in this crisis. He says  that they alone'want no territory,  and he "places himself largely, almost unreservedly, in their hands.  At an important conference today  he reiterated this statement. "All  the "missionaries have been notified'  of their ^'imminent, peril _through  confidential 'runner's. ' They are  leaving Canton hurriedly, and-only,  a few are.now there.  Commander McLean of the United  States steamship Don Quian Austrian is the first here to protect  foreign interests - He is'! capable  and energetic and is . reinforced by  H.M.S. -Redpole. :Two hundred  foreign 'residents afc Shamen are  armed.  The Canton population reaches  2,000,000 in addition to 250,000  living in junks and sampans (flat  bottomed river boats).

The Chinese  military authorities have been discovered recruiting at Shanghai inside the foreign settlements and  some agents have been arrested in  the act of constructing entrenchments around the European concessions.  A Chinaman connected with the  war purchases for the Chinese government in Europe," who was interviewed by the Daily Express,  says that China has immense quantities of arms and ammunition and  will "stagger humanity" if driven  to defend herself.  18 Krupps and 150 Maxims. Their  supply of ammunition is practically  inexhaustible. It has been mainly  supplied by a German firm. Fully  three-fourths of the Chinese forces  are badly drilled, wholly undisciplined and quite .unfamiliar with  modern weapons. Another Shanghai dispatch says: "Li Ping Heng,  former governor of Shang Tung,  who is intensely anti-foreign, has  gone to the Kiang Kin; forts on the  Yang Tse. He has declared his intention of resisting the landing of  British forces in that region."  PROCRESS OF THE BRITISH  Some Minor Successes.  - London, June 26.���The"'following  dispatch has beeu "i'eceiyed at the  war office from lord Roberts :  "Pretoria Presidency, Juue 25.  ���Clements successfully engaged a  force of Boers yesterday near Winburg, where he had gone to pick up  supplies and some heavy guns preparatory to acting in- combination  with columns from Lindley, Heilbron . and Heidelberg. He drove  the enemy north" of Sandspruit,  wifch loss. No casualties are reported.. ���   ���  "Ian Hamilton reports that Heidelberg is the most English town  he has yet seen. The inhabitants  gave him a great reception. The  streets were crowded and decorated  with bunting. Captain Valentine  hoisted the Union Jack, in the market, square amidst the cheers of the  populace and the British, Australian and other colonial troops. 'God  Save the Queen', was "sung, the  crowds heartily joining in.  "The poor loyalists have had a  rough time lately. Hutton's  mounted infantry skirmished with  the Boers yesterday a few miles  southeast of Pretoria. Captain  Anley is reported to have managed  the little business very well. Lieutenant Cryspin and one of the Northumberland Fusileers ~ were  wounded." -    '---..".-        .' ;  ARMY TO BE SENT TO CHINA  Decision at Washington. ~  Washington, June 20.���The purpose of the government to place ah  adequate military force in China  was made clear today when orders  were issued to brigadier general  Adam Chaffee to take command of  . the forces in China, and to proceed  at once to assume his new duties.  More significant probably than the  assignment itself was the wording  of the formal orders to general  Chaffee issued late in the day by  acting secretary of war Meiklejohn,  directing him "to take command of  the troops ordered to China, and to  proceed to Pekin by ,way of San  Francisco and Taku accompanied by'  his aides."  It had been "expected the military forces would ,-be concentrated  at Chefoo or some other convenient  base bufc the direction to proceed to  Pekin indicates a firm.determination  on the part of the government authorities to have a strong military  force at the seat of the Chinese  government.  The announcement of general  Chaffee's assignment and the orders  to proceed to Pekin came after the  state department had declined to  accede to a second proposition from  great  viceroys  of China that  Belief of Kumassi Near.  London, June 20.���The government has received dispatches from  Ashanti indicating that the relief  of Kumassi should be accomplished  this week. About 650? men of the  British Central African national  forces sailed'June 22nd for Ashanti,  where they will be employed to  quell the uprising. This is the first  time that the British Central  Africa has been called upon to partake in the responsibilities of the  empire. _���������  Immense Chinese Army.  London, June 20.���General Ma's  army, says a correspondent at Shan  Hai Kan, consisting of 45,000 men,  left a week ago for Pekin, and general Sung Chiugs* troops, numbering 25,000, leffc for the same place  on June 15th. A careful estimate  of the number and armament of  the Chinese troops around Pekin  puts the total at 360,000, and it is  calculated that these troops possess  22 seven-centimetre Creusofc guns,  . - Missionaries Are Armed. - -  . .,PmtApE.ni��jHiAv*;,.Pa.,' June 20.���  Div Thomas Coltman,r.of' Jenki'n-  town, has jusfc received a letter  dated May 29, from his sister, Mrs.  Oliver H. Clifford, who, with her  husband, is connected with the  Presbyterian mission at Tien Tsin,  China. Since the letter was written events of grave importance  have transpired in Tien Tsin, and  Dr. Colfcman expresses fears for the  safety of his sister and her husband, and that of his father and  mother who sailed some time ago  to visit their daughter. Mrs.  Clifford's letter reads as follows:  "We sleep now with our firearms  close. Oliver and I have a brace ot  pistols under our heads. I always  have two valises,packed. The entire foreign population anxiously  waits for the first sign of an uprising. Last Monday morning when  the^people awoke in-the-city���huge,  placards were found posted on the  walls and fences, reading as follows:  'The heavens are displeased at the  presence of - the foreign dogs in  China, the gods have decreed that  there shall be no more rain in the  whole kingdom until they are all  expelled.' "  A Hard Bill to Collect.  Washington, June 26.���As to  the report from Constantinople that  the American charge d'affaires, Mr.  Giiscom, has presented another demand for the settlement of the  American claims, it can be stated  on high authority that the United  States government is steadily pressing for a definite and final settlement, and is losing no opportunity  to remind the Turkish authorities  of the unsatisfactory and indefinite  nature of the present situation.  Just beyond this pressure there has  been no imperative action taken,  nor has ifc been definitely determined what course will be adopted  if the temporizing of Turkish  diplomacy is carried to the point of  actual failure to meet the American  demands. _________________________  Yaquis Leave the Warpath.  Tucson, Ariz., June 26.���William  Gill of Philadelphia, who is here  from a prospecting trip iu Mexico,  says the Indians have nearly all  abandoned the warpath. Several  hundred are still in the mountains  and make an occasional descent on  isolated ranches. Near Tomachio on  Friday last a large party raided a  ranch and killed two cowboys,  wounded several others and one  woman. They were driven off after a hard fight.  six  foreign troops be kept out of China  until Li Hung Chang reaches Pekin.  In formal manner, with the' signatures of the six viceroys representing the greater part of' the empire, minister Wu repeated today  his plea of yesterday that the foreign troops be kept out of the  country.  Secretary Hay laid the formal request of the viceroys before the  cabinet meeting, but there was no  disposition to vary from the president's determination, already made  known by secretary Hay to the  Chinese minister,' to send the  United States forces to such points  as were menaced and where our  officials, and citizens were in danger.  While the viceroys spoke for their  provinces, they could not speak for  Pekiu,, "and ifc is to Pekin that  the officials, most-..anxiously, look.  Minister Conger is still silent and  the latest advices have shown that  little reliance-can be placed on the  dispatches from ��� Shanghai saying  the ministers and legations at Pekin are safe. For this reason the  orders to general Chaffee to proceed to Pekiu took on an added  meaning.  The department today accepted  the services of an officer on the retired list under authority conferred  by a -recent act of congress^ The  officer "is lieutenant J. G. Townley,  retired, who is ordered to sail on  the steamer leaving San Francisco  Juls 10th. It is. expected that  many other retired officers will be  called back to active service if the  emergency becomes pressing.  Passed Through Tien Tsin.  stream to the surface. In turning  this stream so that ifc would not  run down the upraise good looking  dirt was uncovered and several pans  were washed. Coarse gold was  found and as high as $60 to the pan  were taken out. The stream crosscuts the Lone Star vein which is an  extension of the famous Reco vein,  from which so much rich gold was  taken out a few years ago. The  presumption is that the creek bed  down from the vein is rich placer  ground and the ground will be  prospected immediately.  American General in China.  Washington, June 26.���General  Chaffee was in conference at the war  office today with the adjutant general and the heads of various departments with a view to his future  needs in the conduct of the military  campaign in China. It is expected  that he will establish his headquarters at Chefoo about August 1st afc  the latest and he will not have less  that 5000 men at his command, the  majority of whom will be drawn  from the Philippines.  Prisoners of the Boers.  New York, June 20.���The Tribune's London correspondent cables:  The Boers have 1350 prisoners on  the Delagoa Bay line, and probably  about 800 in the Orange River Colony, which were taken at the Rhenoster river. Lord "Leitrim and  Ennis Moore have been taken north  with other members of the millionaires' battalion.  London, June 26.���The parliamentary secretary of the foreign  office, William St. J. Broderick, in  reply to a question said: "We have  no information from the legations  or admiral Seymour's force from  Tien Tsin. Our last information  from the officers in charge at Wei  Hai Wei is that 3000 of the force  for the relief of Tien Tsin was encamped within nine miles of Tien  Tsin on the eveniug of June 23rd.  From private credible sources we  are informed that the relief force  entered Tien Tsin and marched  north, and the legations were not  harmed.   We hope this is true."  Cape Colony Rebellion Over.  London, June 20.���11:25 p.m.���  The war office has received the following dispatch from lord Roberts:  "Pretoria, Presidency, June 26.���  Sir Charles Warren reports that  the rebellion in Cape Colony north  of the Orange riyer is now over.  The lasfc formidable body under  commandant De Villiers surrendered on June 20th, consisting of  about 220 men, 280 horses, 18  wagons, 200 rifles and 100,000 rounds  of ammunition. Colonel Baden-  Powell reports that pacification is  going on satisfactorily in.the Rust-  enberg district."  Placer on Myers Creek.  Greenwood, June 26.���R. M.

McEntire says that the discovery  was made while an upraise for air  was being run from tho Review  tunnel through the bed of a small  OUERRILLAS GIVE TROUBLE  South African War News.  London, June 27.���3:20 a.m.���The  Boer commandoes in the eastern  part of the Orange river colony appear to have been broken up by  their leaders for the time into small  parties that harrass the large columns of the British, incessantly  cutting [off scouts, sniping pickets  and making a. show of force here  and there. Commandant Christian  Dewet, general Steyn's principal  commander i.s the genius of these  guerrilla operations.- He .is the hero  of the'Boers in these*"last days .of  hostilities. Lord - Roberts' columns  are steadily contracting the area of  their advance.  ,  Transvaal officials, who were interviewed yesterday, at Machadorp  by a correspondent of the Daily  Express asserted an intention to  hold oufc to the last. President  Kruger will probably retire to  Watervalender or Nelspruit. His  physician thinks his condition of  health will not allow him to go to  the high veldt.  The British prisoners at Nooit  Gedacht are now comfortable.  Large quantities of food and blankets have been forwarded to them,  and their enclosure is lighted by  electricity.

London, June 20.���Bishop Doane  of Albany goes to Dublin tomorrow,  Previous to sailing for home he  will receive the honorary degree of  D.

Washington, June 26.���Dwight  Reed, United States vice-consul at  Madrid, Spain, has brought to  the  attention of the state department  an   ingenious   swindle  which   has  been attempted upon various persons   in   this   country by certain'  -Spanish   schemers.       The    consul,  transmits   a   sample  letter which  ,was used in the attempt to defraud.-  It was sent to H. Stenl of Buffalo,  and   was    signed    Louis 0 Samper  Stenl, and in it the writer claims  and explains a   close relationship  with the recipient of the letter.  "Louis Samper -Sfcenl" , recites a  long series of untoward happenings  and complications which only financial aid can.mend.   He "has come  into   possession of some $050,000,  confessedly an embezzlement from  the Spanish government, but to insure his money against seizure by  the officials, has ' deposited it in a  Mexican   bank, payable   by check  accompanied by a certain countersign arranged by himself'and the  bank. Certain legal steps have been  against him, aud in lieu' of money  to defray his part of  the  proceedings, he has been  put in prison,*,  and     his     personal     effects,    in-,  eluding   a   valise    in    which    reposes   the   "countersigned"   check '  for his fortune, are about to  be;  sold at   auction.     Iu   return   for  timely financial aid for his ."blood  relation," he promises  a quarter of   ,  his fortune, his daughter's share of  the  money during   her   minority, -'  and his everlasting gratitude.    His  daughter is at a  convent, and the  prior is the sole other  j)ossessor..of  his secret.    He asks that a reply be  sent to Teodoro   Runez, Callo   de  Swivela,  Chamberi,  Madrid.     The  latter is a nephew of fche prior, but-  is ignorant of  the existence of the  -  check, and -the   writer,   therefore, --���  cautions that the answer be sent in  an  envelope enclosed   within1 one *  addressed to Runez.  .   Similar     communications    have -.'  been   sent   all    over   the.   United ..  States, the writer in most cases assuming the same  name as the  person   addressed.    During   the   past  year,   consul   Reed   says,    parties  have' come-f rom   Boston .and .New   .  York  all the  way to  Madrid, only ,  to find themselves victimized.    The  consul has been besieged of late by  inquiries by  the recipients of letters asking some information about  the signers  of the communications.*  He has endeavored to answer them  all, but in view of the  growth  of  the swindlers' overtures he finds the  task becoming great.    Steps probably will be taken to hunt down the  offenders and mete out proper punishment.     . Supplementary Estimates.

Just look  in and see if this is  not a fact.  s  Bay Stores  The Victoria Colonist, offers an  explanation of premier Dunsrauir's  , action in going back to his constituents for re-election. The Colonist  thinks a strict interpretation of the  Constitution Act renders^ tliis.course  necessary*. It seems that iu the estimatesof 1899 there was an allowance of $1000 voted for the  premier, and when Mr. Dunsmuir  accepted the responsibility of forming a ministry, there was an unclaimed balance of $30, which in  some manner his predecessor had  overlooked. The new election is  not due to the premier's anxiety to  secure the $30, but it is contended  that he accepted an oflice for which  an allowance had been voted and  this in itself required that he should,  go back to his constituents for their  endorsation:          There.may be some truth in, the  statement that W. A. Clark and P.  Aug.-Heinze .were playing for political' effect when they consented to.  put the eight-hour shift into force  in their'mines, but .whether this be  so or not, there is now little doubt  but that the eight-hour shift will  be generally recognized throughout  the state of Montana.    Even prop:  erties   which are in litigation are  now   operated    upon    the    eight-  hour basis, the ..applications of the  receivers for permission to adopt  the eight-hour system being freely  granted by the courts. In this connection it is worthy of passing  .notice that, in their ..affidavits the  receivers ...state that ^hdligh the  hours of labor arc redneed, the results are jjractically the same as  under the nine-hour system, owing  to the better condition of the men  employed.        "  Just now it would be difficult for  Joseph Martin to establish his campaign story, that while he was  fighting the corporations in British  Columbia sir Wilfrid's approval followed him. If. the press reports  are to be believed, sir Wilfrid places  the dismissal of the Semlin government as a secondary offense to his  honor's choice of Joseph Martin as  premier.  The developed properties in the  gold belt south of Nelson will establish   a   record    in    gold    production this summer.   Before the close  of the summer they should be producing monthly gold to the value  of $75,000.   The   Athabasca   company is steadily increasing its output ; the Poorman is now in such  shape* that a   monthly output of  $22,500 is figured on for the near  future; the   development   of   the  Granite property is fulfilling all expectations of the company operating it, not only as to values but also  in the matter of charges; then, too,  the Venus property may also be regarded as having permanently entered    upon   the ! producing   list.  When to this list of working mines  may be added the properties of the  Hall Mines, Nelson will be a very  busy camp  indeed.   No date   has  yet been set for the commencement  of operations by the reorganized Hall  Mines company, but the work of reconstruction is going steadily forward. Theouteomewillbeacompany  with a working capital of ��50,000  whicli judiciously handled will no  doubt give satisfactory returns to  the British shareholders.  less than seven years ago, but since  that time even conservative Toronto has taken up the consideration  of government by commissioners, and the matter is beiug  gravely discussed as to whether it  would not be advantageous for the  city to have a board of salaried  commissioners as executive officers  in preference to the present aldermanic committees.   -Thomas R. McTnnes, who for  several years filled the office of lieu  tenant-governor of British Columbia, is now out of public life, and  with him goes the young man who  has acted as his father's private  secretary and cabinet maker. The  passing of the Mclnnes will be noted  ���with pleasure by the people of this  province, and their satisfaction  thereat will be so complete that the  ten-column protest of the dismissed  official will be passed over in silence.  Greenwood Jail Broken.  \.Chief McLaren today mourns the  Ii*%3*of fotu'" guests who "were sojourning at the "city lock-up, says  the Greenwood Times, Two of  them icame from Camp McKinney  at the solicitation of the provincial  government. They were known as  P. Murphy and Blwood. They were  charged with plundering the St.  Louis hotel and were here.awaitiug  speeding trial. The other two were  O'Brien and Hamilton, two boys  charged with taking cigars from Hr  A. King" &'-Co. They were guests  of the city at a late hour last night,  but this morning about five o'clock,  when officer McKenzie went to the  city hall to bid them good morning  he found nothing but empty cells.  The prisoners had received some  assistance from the outside, as a  brace and bit had been used to bore  their way out through the cell. The  four are probably across' in United  States territory by this time.  Officers Elected.  The Bricklayers' and Masons'  International Union No. 3, at an  adjourned meeting held on Monday  evening, elected the following officers for the ensuing term; J. W.  Etcher, president; J. J. Purcell,  vice-president; Joe Clark, recording and corresponding secretary;  William Kempling, financial secretary; John Anderson, doorkeeper;  George Adamson, treasurer; J. Anderson, Johu Collin, George Adamson, trustees; J. W. Etcher, Joe  Clark and John Collin, delegates to  the Trades and Labor Council.  payment of such wages as arc generally accepted as current in each  trade for competent workmen in the  district where the work is carried  out; aud thatPvhis house cordially  concurs in such policy, and deems  it the duty of tho government to  take immediate steps to give effect  thereto. It is hereby declared that  the work to which the foregoing  shall apply includes not only work  undertaken by the government  itself but also all works aided by  the government or Dominion public funds." The opposition termed  this an election move aud maintained that the government would  never act on the resolution. That  the opposite is the case is proven  by Mr. McDouogliue's appointment  and his^enteriug on his duties. The  protection of the workingman is  the aim of the resolution and the  government's action in his interests  ests will find ready commendation. The plan is that before a public works contract  is entered into, Mr. O'Donoghue  will visit the section of country  where the<work proposed is" to be  done. He enquires-���using his own  ways of work^aS to tho prevailing  rate of wages for the classes of  labor to. be employed and the usual  hours'constituting a day's work.  These he'reports.;to the department  arid the figures^are entered in a  form which in eludes conditions set  out below. This form and these  rates of wages will be embodied in  the contract-.when awarded and the  contractor must pay this rate aud  abide by the other conditions  named. It will be a sure protection  for the working man���guaranteeing  him proper pay for his day's work  and seeing that he gets it.  Wholesale  Houses  NELSON  B.C.  HOTEL   ARRIVALS  The sentiment in favor of compulsory arbitration, is growing.  ?Even^the-staid^old=Colohist=of=Vic^  toria deals kindly with the subject.  There are more parties to disputes  between labor and capital than the  man who has labor to sell or the  man who desires to. purchase such  labor. Under the present system,  however,'.none but the employer or  the employed have a voice in the  settlement; of disputes, and it not  infrequently happens that the interests of the whole community  are sacrificed to the obstinacy of.the  disputants. Compulsory arbitration would merely give all who have  an interest a voice in the settlement  of disputes.  A movement has been started in  Toronto looking to the establish-  ; ment of a municipal telephone service. The advocates of this reform  promise a cheaper and more efficient  service than at present obtains, and  cite the experiences of the cities of  Glasgow and' Manchester as proof  of the feasibility of the .'municipal  telephone., . .

Boulder Creek Mines.  The Outcrop.  P. M. Chadbourn arrived here  from Nelson on Friday's boat. He  -will commence work at once on the  Black Prince group,' which is situated opposite the Delos group on  Boulder creek, and has already  made arrangements with John Me-,  Latchie, P. L. S., to have the group  surveyed. To the Outcrop reporter  lie said that he would put a gang  of men at work in the course of a  few. days sinking a shaft. The  Black Prince is a very promising  property and already has a tunnel  i n about 45 feet, showing a vein  varying from _\\ to three feet in  width. The ore is bornite copper,  (���ommonly spoken of as red copper,  and is said to be the prettiest look-,  ing rock yet discovered in British  Columbia, from whicli assay returns show 15 to 20 per cent copper. Mr. Chadbourn has had several good offers for this property,  but refused them all, as  he   has  THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U.

Mr. '.Chadbourn'' is also the fortunate  owner of the'Iron Horse, Elkhorn,  Matterhorn, Head Light and King  Solomon claims, on which he "intends to start work in the near future. There has been very little  work done on these claims, but  there is a. splendid showing. The  ledge being a large one crops out  boldly, showing grey copper and  galena. Good values in gold and  silver have been obtained. A survey will be made at once of these  claims aud applica.tion_made_for_  crown grants. Work would be progressing now, but for the want of a  good trail. However, Mr. Chadbourn has been informed by the  Gold Commissioner that a trail will  be constructed so soon as the first  money is available.  The Referendum in Switzerland.  In Switzerland itself "there has  ���just been a particular interesting  test of the referendum. By a united vote, Avhich only lacked one of  being unanimous, the two chambers  of the Swiss parliament some time  since passed a measure providing  for state insurance. The principle  of the measure was admirable, but  the methods to be employed were  found to be complicated, bureaucratic, illiberal, and unjust. Accordingly, in January last a sufficient number of voters demanded  a referendum of the measure to the  will of all the people. The intervening months, were passed in an  educational campaign, and the  measure has just been rejected by a  vast maj ority. Popular representatives of this majority are now  drafting a new measure, providing  for insurance for soldiers against  accidents and. illness, old .age, and  invalidism.

Probably late experiences may tend to  remove this. > Another noticeable  incident in connection with the  camps is the fact that the brigadiers have all been officers of our  local forces either now serving or  on-the-reserve-of-ofneers.���������   Big Returns on Delphine Ore.  Canterbury Outcrop.  The returns for the two car loads  of ore recently shipped to the Trail  smelter from the Delphine mine, on  Toby creek, have been received by  Messrs. Kimpton and Hammond, accompanied by a cheque for $2,-  894.45. The smelter give total  assays per ton of $149.02. The Delphine was staked in the year 1898  by Messrs. Stark and Harrison, who  sold a one-third interest to R. A.  Kimpton. The /,,three partners  worked the property to some extent last year and made a shipment  of two cars of ore, which netted  $92 per ton. In April of this year  Stark and Harrison sold their-remaining two-third interests to H.  C. Hammond of Toronto. The  amount realized has not been made  public, ��� but it is generally believed  to be in the neighborhood of $35,000.  DOMINION DAY  AT   THE  There has been very little work  done.ou.the property since the last  sale, but it may reasonably be expected that the encouragement received from this last..shipment will  suffice to make the working of the  miue continuous.

The last  report from Revelstoke was to the  effect that the river was rising two  inches there every hour. The level  is now near the danger poiut at  Robson.and tha situation may become serious within the next few  days.  The CanadaJBook & Drug Company has the distinction of being  the first business house to decorate  foi'ctbe demonstration. Yesterday  afternoon their* awnings were  ornamented with great Union Jacks.  William B. Hudson, late foreman  afc the Athabasca mine, left yesterday for Republic. Mr. Hudson is  taking up his residence permanently  across the border much to the regret of Nelson friends, a party of  whom saw him off at the traiu yesterday.  The C. P. R. steamers' logs report  an unusually heavy blow on the  lake during Monday night. The  storm was the heaviest experience  for five or six years.  A hitch has arisen over the  dancing pavilion at Lakeside park.  TJie local government officials have  concluded that the enterprise comes  under the heading of dancehouses  and is therefore liable for a $100  license fee. Professor Werner objects to the classification and to the  license, and the matter is still open.  The city engineer, has found by  measurements that the trolley wires  of the tramway company are" not  more than sixteen feet above the  surface. Parties who intend taking  part in the trades procession during  the Dominion Day celebration  should make a note of this, and see  that their floats are not more than  fifteen feefc high.  The Municipal band and the demonstration, committee are nofc  pulling well together and it is extremely probable that the band  will nofc play during the celebration. The committee appropriated  $100 to pay the baud for playing  two days, but the musicians refused to parade under $150. Lasfc  year the band received $175 and  the bandsmen object to such a  radical reduction in their remuneration.  John Boyd, an employee of the  Columbia Lumber Company at Nakusp, was brought to the general  hospital yesterday suffering from a  badly smashed hand, fche result of  an accident while coupling cars.  The injured hand was dressed, and  will be saved with the exception of  one finger which was so badly  mangled as to render amputation  necessary.  '���/ The officer commanding the Nelson rifle company has received a  communication from the district  T5fficWs=^t1ftih^^tliair==tlie Rocky-  Mountain Rangers would be inspected within the next few weeks  and asking when the company will  be ready for the ordeal. An effort  will be made to have the inspection  postponed until the fall as a number of the members of the Nelson  and other companies are engaged  in occupations which take them oufc  of town during the slimmer months.  The conveyance of the streets required from the city by the C. P. ft.  for the enlargement of their depot  facilities was completed yesterday  when mayor Houston affixed his  official signature to the legal documents. The city receives a 40-acre  plot lor park purposes and a seven-  year lease of the recreation grounds.  The members of the football club  will meet tonight in the Waverley  hotel at ') o'clock to make final arrangements for the forthcoming  match with Kaslo.  All deeds and leases between the  city and the Canadian Pacific Railway Company have been signed  and delivered, and the work that is  to make Nelson the main divisional  point on the Canadian Pacific's system in British Columbia is to be  commenced at once.  Captain Blancliard, late adjutant  of the Fifth regiment, Victoria,  who died of his wounds in South  South Africa, was a brother of Mrs.  White, wife, of Rev. G. J. C. White,  M. A., pastor of the Nelson Baptist  church. When the first Canadian  contingent left for the front Rev.  and Mrs. White went to Quebec to  bid farewell to their brother. The  news of captain Blanchard's death-  comes as a terrible blow, and the  sympathy of citizens generally will  be extended to them in their sad  bereavement. The deceased officer  was a popular and capable soldier.  A mechanic's Hen was filed yesterday by B. F. Nesbitt against the  Sophie mineral claim, owned by the  Simcoe Mining & Development  Company. The. claim is for wages  amounting to $482.  J. B. McGhie. has received the  contract for the erection of a $1300  residence for engineer R. Peebles  on Baker street near the corner of  Railway streefc.     .'  A Slocan Junction man will be  arraigned in the provincial police  court today for selling venison out  of season.  Within the next two or three  days the C. P. R. engineering department will commence the work  of diverting " Cottonwood creek.  This will be done by digging a  trench 'below the bluff which  bounds the flats and turning the  creek into the new channel. About  30 men will be 'employed oh the*  work. ���-   :'   "'    ���'���  . Train'. Service .

No action could possibly be taken  to relieve the commander-in-  chief, because it ��� was only  known that he was . cut off  by Tien Tsin being.invested. Tien  Tsiri has been fighting for its life  ever since.
