Electric Light Works.  The city has issued debentures of  the par value of $55,000 on account  of the -"lectric light works, and the  council is now asking that an  additional  $15,000  be   issued,  which  '���would make ���  total  debenture  indebtedness   of   $70,000,   against  a  .  plant on  which  $08,254.48  has already been expended.   This would  leave    the    council   a   balance  of  , $1745.52 to be expended ou construc-  .-' tion account this  year.    The  city  lias operated the plant a j*ear and  eleven months.  The receipts in that  time have been $2S,5SG, and the expenditures for maintenance, interest  aud sinking fund  total  $15,493.01,  .which shows that the city has made  ��� an^ actual  profit of   $13,092.99  in  operating the plant  since August  1st, 1S9S, which is 10  per  cent per  annum on  $08,254.48.    Tho figures  in detail are as follows :  edness against the water works will  be $88,159.32, which will leave a  balance of only $511.30 for the  council to spend during the remainder of the year.

In 1S97 the city expended $9682.09  on sewers, which came from the  proceeds of the sale of $50,000 public works debentures. In 1898 a  further expenditure of $8,370.34  was made; iu 1S99, $17,227.61; and  so far this year $5,353.45 have been  expended, or a total of $40,634.09.  The debenture indebtedness incurred for sewer construction  amounts to $34,082.69, and the $20,-  000 now asked for will bring the  total up to $54,682.69, which will  allow a further expenditure this  year of $14,048.60. "The cost of  maintaining the. sewers'has been  merely nominal, a total of $531.96  having been so expended. The  revenue from sewer rates has not  yet amounted to much, the total  $690.46 is $158.50 more than the  cost of maintenance. .The l-ates  this year are estimated at $1500.  Public Buildings and Grounds.  Against a debenture indebtedness  of $12,157.99 tho city has a cemetery ground of 40 acres and four  lots at the corner of Victoria and  Josephine streets, with the buildings thereon. This property brings  in a revenue through the granting  of burial permits and sale of cemetery lots. So far, $871.47 have been  collected from this source.  Streets and Sidewalks.

It  is estimated that $15,000 will be  required to complete the work laid  out.

Washington, July 10.���The following official dispatch was received  here tonight from China: "Che-  Foo, Shang Tuug.���The governor  wires that he has reports that on  the 4th of July all the legations in  Pekin were safe except the German.  (Signed) Fowler, consul."  Fierce Fight at Tien:Tsin.  London, July 11.���4:15 a.in.���"No  authentic news from Pekin," is still  the burden of the dispatches from  the far east, and, although, the disposition is to believe the optimistic  reports from Chinese sources, no  real confidence is possible until the  legations, if they are still in existence, are permitted to communicate with, their governments. If,  as alleged, the Boxer movement is  losing ground iu Pekin, it might  have been supposed that the Boxers  would have endeavored to send up  reinforcements from Tien-Tsin, but  instead of that they are still in  great force in the neighborhood of  the latter place, and are assisted by  the imperial Chinese troops with  ample and efficient artillery.  According to a special Che-Foo  dispatch, the fighting around Tien-  Tsin on the third and fourth was  the severest yet experienced.. The  British loss alone was thirty killed  or wounded. The Chinese had 75,-  000 men attacking simultaneously  from the west; north and east, and  made excellent practice with over  100 guns. The defenders numbered  14,000, with scant supplies, and it  was only the presence of the newly,  arrived Japanese and Russian guns  that prevented a disaster. One  Russian company of infantry numbering 120 men had 15 killed or  wounded. The German contingent  also suffered heavily.  By the evening of the fourth the  situation was very critical. The  allies narrowly escaped total defeat. Providentially, when things  were at their worst, a% torrential  rainfall compelled the- Chinese to  retire. On July 6th, the ;rain having somewhat abated, .the Chinese  renewed the attack,' opening lire on  Tien-Tsin with two batteries of  four-inch guns, but the allies, aided  by two of H. M.S. Terrible's 4.7  guns, succeeded in silencing the  .Chinese.artillery after eight hours  of fighting.  At Shang-Hai it seems now to be  the general belief that the date of  the dispatch of July 3rd, asserting  that two legations were still standing, was an error, either accidental  or intentional. The couriers miist  have left Pekin at least five days  earlier, making the real date of the  message June 28th, while the alleged massacres are said to have  taken place on June 30th. Until  this point can be clearly understood the greatest anxiety will be  felt as to the fate of the Europeans.  According to the Shang-Hai correspondent of the Express' it is war  to the knife between the dowager  empress and prince Tuan. The  latter in his recent edict boldly discards his mask and signs himself as  emperor. He warmly commends  the prowess of his faithful Boxers,  =and=in=flowery=language"appealjfW  their cupidity and fanaticism. In  the same decree prince Tuan appoints prince Tsuan, the "iron  capped" prince Tsai Shan, his imperial clansman, and Kang Yi to  command the three chief wings of  the Boxer army.  Three hundred European refugees  from Tien-Tsin have arrived at  Shang-Hai in a state of destitution  after terrible sufferings.  The Chinese version of the origin  of the outbreak, as published in  Shang-Hai, is that baron von Kettler  was hated by the Pekiners, who,  taking advantage of the disturbances, shot him for revenge, thereby  causing a conflict between the  Chinese troops and the Germans,  the latter of whom destroyed the  tsung li yamen. The infuriated  soldiers under, prince Tuan then  gained complete control over the  dowager empress.  The Daily News' Tien-Tsin correspondent says the allies have decided to bombard the native city,  which they have hitherto hesitated  to attack owing^ to the heavy commercial interests involved.  I Germany has been effected at last.  Secretary Hay and the German ambassador have subscribed to. the  convention, and the president will  issue his proclamation putting the  new duties in force in the course of  a few days. The arrangement is  generally similar in terms to the  first arrangementmade with France,  and abates duties on still wines,  argols, paintings aiid statuary from  Germany entering the United States.  It does not require the approval of  the senate, being drawn under section 4 of the Dingley Act.  No Trouble in Foo. Kien.  Paris, July 10.���The French consul at Foo Chow telegraphs under  date of July 10th: "The town is  calm. The viceroy and the Tartar  marshall have issued a proclamation  in favor of foreigners and asking  that warships should not come to  Foo Chow. They propose in return  to take such steps as will avert  trouble in the Foo Kien province."  German-American Reciprocity.  Washington, July 10.���The long  arrangement  States  and  CRAZY DEPUTIES DO RAVE  French Chamber Adjourn.  Paris, July 10.4-The senate and  chamber of deputies today concluded the debate on the budget  and were prorogued1 until autumn.  The session of the chamber of  deputies had been unusually tumultuous, and it preserved this character  to the last, today's sitting being  marked by one : or two noisy  incidents. The first of these arose  over the government's supplementary list -of decorations  in connection with, tho exposition.  M. Berry '(Conservative) declared  that M. Millerand, -the .minister of  commerce, chose, the jurors from  among his political friends. The  members to the left protested  against this statement, whereupon  Berry stigmatized, them as "the  servile majority of the government." An uproar ensued, and M.  Berry was censured for his expressions by M. Desehanel, president of  the chamber. ���  Later, another Conservative, M.  de Baudry d'Asson, indulged in anc  unparliamentary observation and  was called to order. This annoyed  him and ho continued .a series of  interruptions of the speaker who  followed until" M. Deschaner.said :  "You are making me tired,. M. de  Baudry d'Asson';" At these words  the latter lost* his temper, and,  springing./up, i-uslied at, M. Desehanel, who clinched, fists, shouting,.  ���"You little "blackguard." Before he  could mount the steps of the presidential tribune, he was seized by  several ushers' who were friends of  M. de Baudry d'Asson". and who  .dragged him from the chamber into  the streets, he all the while struggling and railing at M. Desehanel at  the top of his voice, like a mad bull.  His friends were obliged to put their  hands over his mouth.  M. de Baudry d'Asson's rage was  so ridiculous that M. Desehanel  himself was unable to refrain from  laughter, and he decided to take no  official notice of M. de Baudry's  conduct.  The 'remainder of the session  passed off calmly, aiid nothing  much was heard of M. de Baudry  d'Asson until premier Waldeck-  Rousseau read the decree of dissolution, which was ; greeted with  cries of "Vive Republique," when  M. de Baudry^d'AsspnJired^a part-  expected  between  reciprocity  the   United  ing shot, shouting,  king."  "Long live the  * Japan May Do the Dirty Work.  ��� Berlin, July 10.���The foreign  office today informed the Associated Press that all the powers had  consented to Japan's landing a  large force in China, but the stipulation was made beforehand that  no power could derive any advantage territorially from the fact of  its having more troops in China  than the other powers.  Bad Water at Tien-Tsin.  Shang-Hai, July 10.���The chief  difficulty of the allied forces at  Tien-Tsin is the absence of an adequate water supply. The condition of the river is pestilent. The  panic among the Chinese in the  southern provinces is completely  stopping trade, and most of the  native cotton mills are closed.  New Governor of Cape Colony.  London, July 11.���The Daily  Telegraph says' it understands that  at the termination of the war in  South Africa the right honorable  sir George Goldie will be appointed  governor of Cape Colony, sir Alfred  Milner, who now holds both the  governorship and the high commis-  sionership of South Africa, simply  retaining the latter office.  Another Cholera Outbreak.  Simla, July 10.���Cholera has appeared in severe epidemic form at  Kohat, 25 miles south of Peshawur.  Two hundred and seven cases and  77 deaths occurred among the camp  followers between July 3rd and  July 9th. The prospects for the  monsoon are slightly more favorable.  ANOTHER CAPITAL IS TAKEN  Casualties Were Few.  London, July 10.���Lord Roberts  has sent the following dispatch to  the war office: "Pretoria, July 10.  ���Clements' and Paget's forces entered Bethlehem on July 7th. The  former on nearing the town sent in  a flag of truce demanding its surrender, which was refused by Dewet,  wheu Paget, making a wide turning movement, succeeded in getting  hold of the enemy's most important  position covering cthe town.  "This was carried out before dark  by the Munster Fusileers and the  Yorkshire Light. Infantry. The  following morning the attack was  cbutinued and by noon the town  was in our possession.  ���;. "Our casualties were four officers  and 32 men of the Munsters  wounded, and one missing. Captains  MacPherson and Weakes and lieutenant Conway severely and lieutenant Boyd Rochefort, Scotti-m  Rifles, slightly wounded. Seven  men of the Yorkshires . were  wounded and one killed. Two of  the. Imperial Yeomanry were  wounded.  "Baden-Powell reached Rusten-  burg during the evening of July  Sth without opposition. He found  all quiet there aud public confidence  satisfactory, thanks to the prompt  and bold grasp of the situation  taken by major Hanbury-Tracey.  "The district west of^this is somewhat unsettled owing to the small  force which attacked Rustenburg  being still in that neighborhood.  Measures are being taken to meet  this.  "Further information regarding  the capture of Bethlehem has now  been received from Clements. He  states that the country there is  broken. Consequently his and  Paget's cavalry were unable to  make any wide turning movements.  Clements attacked one position  while Paget attacked another. The  position assailed .by Clements, was  'gallantly captured by ��� the Royal  Yeomanry, who captured a gun of  ;the 77th battery lost at Storm-  iberg. The list of casualties has  not yet been received, but Clements states they are few, considering the strength of the position  assaulted.  "Hunter's cavalry under Broadwood reached Bethlehem on ...July  Sth. Hunter with his main force  was within nine miles of the town  when Clements- dispatched his reports."

London, July 11.-3:30 a.m.���The  Shang-Hai   correspondent   of   the  Daily Mail, telegraphing yesterday,  says:   "A message has arrived here  from  emperor   Kwang-Hsu   dated  July by courier from ��� Pekin, to the  viceroy of Nankinj who. forwarded  it here.   It is addressed to the Russian, English and Japanese governments.   It deplores the recent occurrences   and    solemnly    affirms  that the Chinese government was  protecting the Boxers against the  Christians.    The emperor further  implores their aid in suppressing  the  'rebellion   and   upholding the  existing government. In aseparate  dispatch to the Japanese government, Kwang Hsu expresses deep  regret for the murder of the legation  chancellor   Sugyama.     These  dispatches are taken   to   indicate  that the emperor is in seclusion and  is in ignorance of the, seriousness of  events."    ''  Yang Tse Ports Quiet.  Shang-Hai, July 10.���It is difficult to get news here as the consuls  are dependent on Taotai Sheng for  Pekin news. He and other officials  have large landed interests, and  therefore it is supposed he will do  his best to assist the foreigners in  keeping peace. A large number of  rowdies are enlisting at the arsenals which may thus get out of hand.  The officials have turned all their  attention to the defense of the Yang  Tse Kiang and have guaranteed to  protect foreigners ��� at Yang Tse  ports provided the foreigners established there remain, quiet. No  warships are allowed to land forces  and single Avarships only are allowed to pass the fortifications.  Sheug's proposal to form. a; Chinese  volunteer corps' has' b'ee'ri^rejected.

It is expected that either marshall  Nodzu or marshal Oyina will take  command. The plan of campaign  contemplates operations extending  tw<3 or three years. A further  force of 13,000 men will bo landed  at Taku a week hence and ah additional 10,000 soon .afterwards.. Before the rainy season is well advanced Japan hopes to have 63,000  troops iu China.  Hollis Not Recalled.  Washington,    July    10.���It  is  learned that the announcement from Lorenzo Marquez  that Mr. Hollis, the American  ^c.ons.ul=there,==has==Jbeen==xeealledJ  is erroneous. Mr. Hollis has  not been discreet, in the judgment  of the department, in such expressions of his sympathy as becomes a  United States officer charged with  such delicate duties as have devolved upon the consul at Lorenzo  Marquez. lt is believed that the  department has been obliged to remind him of this fact, but it has  not recalled him nor has it any present intention of doing so.  Advertising Swindler Surrenders.  New York, July 10.���Samuel A.  Phillips, the advertising agent of  this city who was five times indicted on charges of grand larceny  a year ago on accusations of having  swindled two newspapers and the  Jarrios Diamond Company out of  about $50,000, surrendered himself  today to detectives in the district  attorney's oflice. He was arraigned  before recorder Goff. His counsel  vouched for his appearance in court  tomorrow and Goff released him on  his old bail of $4000. The chief  witness in the case is from Europe  and the case is to go to immediate  trial on this account.  Governor of Gold Coast Safe.

London, July 11.���A special dispatch from Lorenzo Marquez says a  Boer bulletin has beeu issued asserting that the Boers have recaptured  WatervaaU  HIGH PRAISE FOR TREBELLI  Victoria Times' Opinion.        s  Mademoiselle Trebelli took Victoria by storm in a recent concert  there as the following from the  Times of the 7th will testify:  "This city is not advantageously  situated as far as a tour of a noted  can tat rice or musician is concerned,"  and   perhaps   to   this might   be  attributed the fact that it is only  at extended intervals that Victoria  lovers of music are charmed by the  magic ability of stellar attractions  in the   musical   world.      Madame  Albani, heralded by a fame that  has   permeated   two   hemispheres,  came here in full  splendor several  years ago and conquered.     Nevada  sang to a delighted audience in the  Victoria theatre but recently, and  last evening Mile Trebelli took captive the hearts of those present in  the Institute hall from the moment  when her glorious voice was heard  revelling in the beauties of Verdi's  gem,  "Ah fors    E'Lui," until the  final notes of the famous laughing  solo terminated the concert.     Albani, Nevada and Trebelli constitute   a   delightful   triumvirate in  the   affections   of Victorians, and'  there are many who, in spite of the  glamour of renown surrounding the'  former two, in spite of the imperial  rank accorded Albani in the musical world, place the artiste of last '  evening's triumph in the first posi-'  tion."  One more chance is given Nelson  to hear this noted artiste, as she  sings at the opera house next Mon-"  day evening.  Debates in the House.  Ottawa, July 10���[Special to The'  Tribune].���There were two  discus- J  sions in the house today.   One was  on a motion of Davin's giving  Mu-"  lock's postoffice bill a  six  months'- '  hoist, which was defeatedjby 27 for_  tiie amendment and 7?T foi- the bill,"  a majority of 52j the other was an.  amendment to supply by Foster, in  which he recited in a long report  all the charges he had against  the  government in regard to their failure to carry out their  pre-election  pledges.    This was about the same  as he did last year.    Fielding also  replied pretty much along the same  lines as last year.    People, he said,  were getting good  value  for  their  money.     He charged against the  Conservatives   that   $150,000   was  lost  to the  treasury by  allowing  the British American  Bank Note  Company in their contract to substitute inferior  material.    The  defence of the contractor was that  the government let him do it.  Wells Tours the District.  Kaslo, July 10.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���The Hon. W.C.Wells,'  chief commissioner of lands and  ^orks^arrLved-here-today-and-had-^  a long talk with R. F. Green, M.P.P.,  regarding the wants of the district.  He was also interviewed by Percy  Dickinson, who represents New  York capital operating in Camp  Mansfield. Dickinson gave Wells  some idea of the feeling of the mine  owners on the eight-hour law.  Wells goes from here to Nelson and  from thence to Rossland, in which  latter place some questions of title  have arisen which may require  legislation to settle.  The Belle Island Strike.  St. John's, July 10.���The Belle  Island strikers succeeded today in  preventing a schooner from unloading coal or any other work beiug  done at the mines. The managers  of the mines have applied to the  supreme,court and the government  for protection. The available police  force of the colony will proceed to  the scene at day light to protect  the workings and the gang.  Terrible Casualty List.  London, July 10.���The war office  has issued another casualty list  from South Africa showing that  during the week ending July 7th  there were killed, wounded or captured 15 officers, 180 men, accidental deaths, 2 men; died of disease, 4  officers and 105 men; invalided  home, 72 officers aud 1305 men,  with total casualties as a result of  the war of 48,200 officers and men.

John Houston stated  that if elected mayor he would close  all robbing gambling games then  running wide open in Nelson. That  is the only promise that he made,  and he has kept it -to the letter.  John Houston as mayor will not  permit the Sabbatarians to dictate  to people who are not Sabbatarians  how they shall spend their leisure  hours on Sunday or. any other day  of the week, and the chances are,  the saints, as well as the sinners,  are well aware that he means exactly what he says.  While the Transvaal war was at"  its height some of the leading  religious publications of the Dominion were preaching against  what they termed the threatened  militarism of Canada.

BRITAIN'S   NATIONAL   DEBT.  ii'  n*"  .Most people are aware of the  magnitude' of the national debt of  Great Britain,'yet few are acquaint-,  ed with the story of its origin, or  know that the first item it is  charged with is an amount for  .vhich was compounded a royal robbery committed by a profligate  K:iglish king.  In the reign of Charles the First,  the Royal Mint, then situated in the  Tower'of London, wa.s used as a  placo of security for the deposit of  the surplus cash of the bankers and  merchants of theBritish metropolis,  when that monarch, on being re-  ,fused a loan by the city of London,  seized the money thus lodged for  ,s;it'ety. It was in amount one  million dollars���a large sum'iu those  ,' -vys���and> the owners, many of  whom were ruined by the event,  were compelled, by royal authority,  to ���{���ousidSi1 it as a loan. The sum  was, however, repaid after a few  mouths.  But, notwithstanding this repayment, the nefarious act led the  moneyed classes to seek a safer  'place of deposit fur such portiou of  their floating capital as was not re-  ' .aired in their ordinary transac-  .lions ; and after the restoration the  exchequer was chosen for such purpose, the bankers withdrawing their  money from it once a week to enable them to meet the demands of  ;tlieir customers.  ^One day, at the close of 1071,  Charles the Second being much distressed for money, and despairing  of obtaining any from the house of  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. 0., and Dawson City, N. W. T.  commons, declared in a private  meeting with his ministers, that, if  any of them could invent a method  of raising about a million aud a half  pounds (seven and a half million  dollars) without a parliament, he  should .have the "White Staff," or,  in . other words, the ollice of lord  treasurer. On the following day  lord Ashley told sir Thomas Clifford,  in confidence that tho bankers had  a million anda half pounds in the  royal exchequer which the king  could seize by closing the exchequer  aud refusing payment.  The king readily agreed to the  project; and at a privy council, held  on January 2nd, 1072, his majesty  being present, sir Thomas Clifford  proposed, "that as-the king must  have money to carry on the war  against Holland, in which his honor  was engaged, he knew of no other  means at present than shutting up  the exchequer. He desired that  none would speak against it without proposing some method more  certain and expeditious."  The king, after many apologies  for his bold step, declared that "it  should only be for the space of one  year."  Iu accordance with this proposition, Charles suspended all payments to the bankers out of the exchequer, which was considered one.  of the worst acts of the profligate  monarch's reign ; and the result was  more disastrous than the act of his  father, al read y. recorded.  Sir Thomas Clifford, for his services in the affair, was, .according  to the promise of the king made  lord high treasurer and peer.  In course of.time, the king stated  in a private declaration, "that, although contrary to his inclination,  he had been obliged to cause a stop  to be made as to the principal  money, he would punctually pay it  hereafter, and in the meantime  would allow six per cent interest  for the money"; and.a public declaration was "subsequently issued  to the effect that letters patent had  Imperial Bank of Canada  HEAD  OFFICE.

The interest was paid for a few  years and then suspended; when,  after vainly attempting to influence  parliament in their behalf, the unfortunate creditors . were at. last  obliged, to maintain their right before the court of exchequer. The  suit was protracted for above  twelve years, when, in the year  1697, judgment was obtained  against the crown. An appeal was  made against this decision by the  attorney-general of the day, to the  celebrated lord chancellor Somers,  who set it aside, although ten out  of the twelve judges whom he had  called to his assistance were of a  different opinion.  The cause was at last carried by  appeal to the house, of lords, by  whom the decree of the chancellor  was reversed; aud the patentees  would have received the amount of  their accumulated interest, had not  an act passed in 1699, by which, in  lieu thereof, it was enacted that,  after December 5th, 1705, the hereditary revenues of the excise should  stand charged with the annual  payment of three per cent - of the  principal sum contained in the letters patent���subject, however, to  be redeemed upon the payment of  a moiety thereof, or -��064,263.  The reader will naturally be anxious to know the amount of the  loss which- the bankers ultimately  sustained in consequence of these  proceedings.- The original sum  stopped in the Exchequer in 1672  was -61,328,526, to which must be  added 25 years' interest at six per  cent, ��1,992,787, making a total of  ��3,321,313. Deducting from this  sum the demand of the bankers, as  fixed by the above act, it follows  that tlieir loss amounted -��2,667,050,  nearly thirteen and a half million  dollars.  The above sum  of ��664,263  ap  pears under the name of "king's  debt," as" the first item -->in the  national debt of Great Britain.  a=>.. c_? ._-?���' <^'C=:>' SJ-'S'��� 'Sj-tS?*' SL:  .-  LIGHTING   C.   P.   B. - TRAINS.  Electricity is working its way to  favor on the great trunk roads.  The old time lamp and the match  have to give place to the incandescent bulb and the button switch.  Not only in the passenger coaches  will the change take place, but-also  on the locomotive with its cab and  head lights.  The C. P. R. has used the incandescent lamp in a few of its passenger coaches for some time, the service being so satisfactory that the  company is equipping all its sleeping' cars with electrical apparatus,  about sixteen cars being already  fitted.- A test is.now being made  by the C.P.R. as to the advisability  of introducing the electric lighting  system on locomotives. If the trial  proves satisfactory, it is understood  that all the mountain engines will  be equipped in this way.,;  The method of "generating the  current is by a dynamo placed beneath the coach floor and connected  with the car axle/ A series of  storage batteries are also thrown in  circuit at times, the current being  drawn from them when the train  makes stoppages.   Unsportsmanlike Tactics.  Greenwood Times.  To the Editor:   The Greenwood  boys who visited Nelson to take  part in the sports there on the 2nd  and 3rd instant, complain bitterly  of the treatment accorded   them.  Ross and  MeLeod,  the drill team  which won here on June 29 th, desired to enter at Nelson, and inquired  of the   committee if they  would be allowed to do so.   They  asked for a definite answer before  fche train left for Republic, as they  intended going there in case they  were barred competing.   The committee told them to remain in town,  and assured them they would be  allowed to enter the contest provided they present papers showing  them to be bona fide miners.   The  necessary    credentials   were    telegraphed.for and duly presented to  the committee the following morning ; but imagine how surprised the  team were to hear from the lips of  a committeeman:    "I'm very sorry,  gentlemen,   but   you. can't   drill."  No reason was  given for  this decision, and when it became noised  abroad a great deal of dissatisfaction was expressed,  so the judges  decided to give the Greenwood team  a special prize if they could beat  the   winners  of the  first contest.  This they accomplished quite easily.  But the unfair tactics employed  by the Nelsonites did not end with  the drillers, as the Greenwood hose  team soon learned to their sorrow.  At a meeting of representatives ^of  the three teams, held prior to tiie  hub-and-hub race, it was decided  that the starting signal should be a  pistol, shot;  but when  the teams  lined up at the scratch the starter,  either ignorantly or intentionally,  used  a  flag  instead.     The Nelson  team was evidently aware of the  change, and secured a quicker start,  which gave them a lead the Green-,  wood team was unable to overcome.  In  the wet test, the starter,  who  was  supposed to give the time of  starting to the time-keepers at the  other end of the course by dropping  =a=fiagrkeld-his-llag=until-the=Nelson=  team has passed.under it, thus giving, an unjust advantage.of at least  two seconds.    Nelson furnished two  of the four time-keepers, and these  two disappeared quite mysteriously  just as the race was finishing, but  came back shortly after with both  their watches showing exactly the  same time to a fraction of a second,  and that time very  fast.   Nelson  had but one turn on the hydrant,  where the rules called for two, and  the  nozzle was screwed   on fully  after   the    water   was   shut    off.  These errors should have added tAvo  seconds more to tho Nelson's team  time, but the judges ruled in their  favor and turned a deaf ear to the  protests of  the Greenwood   timekeeper.

Such actions on the part of the  Nelsonites will hurt their celebrations very much in the future and"  aro grertly to be deplored, as tending to lower what should be clean,  manly sport to contemptibly low  plane. .
