 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAE.  NELSOIST:  FBTDAY MOKNTISTG AUGUST 3 1900  ASSOCIATED BOARDS MEET  1          The Opening Session.  The   annual   convention  of   the  associated boards of trade of Southern   British   Columbia  opened   at  Fraternity hall yesterday morning.  The convention was in session all  day, and a number of matters of  great interest were considered during  the sittings.    Today the convention will resume at 10 o'clock,  and as a resolution was carried yesterday inviting .persons interested  in the work of the convention tto be  present at the sittings, a number of  ' Nelson business men will doubtless  avail themselves of the opportunity  to hear the discussions,  fix        The committee on credentials re-  JL-jiorted the following delegates pre-  '^ sent: Phoenix���R. B. Kerr aud W.  B.  Wilcox;  Nelson���T. G.  Procter  and H. Byers; Trail���E. S. Topping  aud D. W. Moore; Grand Porks���C.  Cummings and S_. Spragg'ett; Fort  Steele���W.'B. Ross and  Hannington; Greenwood���C. Scott Galloway aud Duncan Ross; Kamloops  ���J. M. Harper and H. G. Ashley;  Moyie���P.   J.  Smith    and    Lewis  Thompson: Rossland���W. F. Oliver  and A. J. McMillan; Kaslo���G.  O.  Buchanan and George Whitesides.  A cordial welcome was extended  to the delegates by G. V. Holt, president of the local board, who invited the visitors to attend a banquet this evening.  H. W. C. Jnckson, secretary, presented the annual address of tho  president, J. S. C. Fraser <of Rossland, who was unable to be present. ���  The address was of an interesting  nature, dealing iu terse, businesslike terms with various matters of  importance to the business interests  of the territory represented ��� by the  convention.  The election of officers was proceeded with and resulted iu the-  unanimous return of J: Roderick  Robertson as president and H. W.  C.'' "Jackson 'as secretary^treasurer.  The presidents of * the affiliated  boards are ex-of/icio .vice-presidents  ... of the association. -.  " The-first topic.forrnally discussed  by tll^ convention was that of the  Boundary district. The district in  tho Kettle River basin is very generally known as the Boundary, but  none of the provincial maps indicate it thus and persons residing  out of the province have but a  vague idea of the -real location of  the Boundary. To correct this the  representatives of the Greenwood  board introduced a resolution  bringing the matter. before .the  government. The resolution was  carried.  A resolution was laid before the  convention suggesting that the  the government make provisions  for quarterly returns of the development of the mining industry,  the point being that such statistics  would materially influence investors and assist promoters in 'inducing capitalists to direct their attention to the province. This was  ���-carried-without discussionr  The land' registry office at Nelson  was dealt with in the following resolution, which was carried with  out discussion: Moved by H. J.  Byers and W. B. Wilcox, that the  present method of dealing with  land registration caused long and  vexatious delays to the residents  ft/' of Kooteray, and that as a registration office ac Nelson has been completed for some months, this association urge upon the provincial  government the urgent necessity  for the said office being opened for  business at onco. ���" '.,.'      **���  The Rossland, Relegation introduced a resolution { requesting that  the government require: parties  ���platting townsites adjoining towns  and cities secure the approval of  the municipal authorities who will  see that the streets and alleys are  laid out iu accordance with the  general plan of the original town-  site. G. O. Buchanan of Kaslo  brought up an interesting feature  of this matter by suggesting that  it was worth consideration if these  independent communities should  ; be permitted to attach themselves  ' to incorporated municipalities at  all. The gist of his argument was  that the additions benefited in  many respects by their being adjacent to municipalities -without  sharing any of the municipalities'  burdens. ' His suggestion was that  additions should be compelled to  become a part of the corporations  which they ad j oined. The resolution  was carried with an addition to the  effect that the plans of proposed  additions should be examined by a  government engineer and altered if  .necessary to agree with the town-  sites of corporations.  A resolution was adopted recommending the government to have  maps of surveyed lands placed in  every government office for the information of persons requiring information on the point, and that  the maps be kept corrected to date.  T. G. Procter of Nelson brought  up a resolution, resolving that the  Dominion government be memorialized to look into the preservation  of fish in Yale, Cariboo and Kootenay and suggesting the placing of  fish   ladders   at' Bonnington Falls  and other  points   where   natural  obstacles prevent fish coming into  Kootenay lake  and   other   inland  waters.   In discussing this point G.  O. Buchanan read a letter from the  department of marine and fisheries  in which it was stated  that the  question of affording better access  for migrating salmon to Kootenay  waters cannot be dissociated'from  the fact that any increase in the  fish   due   to Canadian efforts by-  planting fish ladders or protection  would benefit the Columbia river  chiefly where every means is adopted to exterminate salmon coming  in from the sea by seines, traps,  etc.   The department proposes to  try   incubating   Kennedy's   landlocked   British   Columbia  -salmon  which would not descend the lower  Columbia river, and this can be done  in the new hatchery to be erected  this fall in   Shuswap   lake.   , The  communication was received with  applause.  Colonel Topping introduced a resolution l-egarding assayers, which  was eventually referred to the committee on resolutions. It provoked  an interesting., discussion on the  working of the present law requiring all assayers to pass examinations at the Coast. Nobody complained that the public were protected against incompetent assayers,  but the mere fact of those taking  the examination having to go all  the way down to the Coast ^ caused  great inconvenience and needless  expense. - J.* Roderick, Robertson  cited-the instance of his, own company, which had three engineers  who had shown themselves to be  competent .assayers, and who held  the bestrcertificates f rom^different  schools of mines and yet' could not'  sign an assay certificate.  G. O. Buchanan of Kaslo, seconded  by E. Spragget of ,vGrand Forks,  moved the following resolution  anent forest fires:  Resolved that in the opinion of  this association a department of the  public service should be organized  to which the duty of the preservation of the forests of the proviuce  should be assigned, and that provisions should be made for 'a rigid  system of timber ranging, for a  close inquiry into the origin of  timber fires, for the enforcement of  the law in regard to fires carelessly  or maliciously caused, and with  means and authority to. extinguish  "incipient fires where'it is'possible'  so to do.  Mr. Buchanan made out a strong  case in favor of his motion which  was carried unanimously. He made  the statement'that=during' the~last~  eight years, five times as much  timber had been burnt in the  Kootenays by forest fires, as had  been cut by all the mill men, timber  limit owners, settlers and so forth.  Colonel Topping of Trril, seconded by Scott Galloway of Greenwood then proposed the following  resolution:'  Believing that the title to crown  granted mineral claims should be  full and perfect and that all surface  ground and timber on the claims  should revert absolutely to the  grantee, be. it therefore       .  Resolved-^-That this association  in convention assembled, do hereby  respectfully petition the provincial  government to change the law to  that effect.  The father of Trail thought that  the ; present law worked a great  hardship on Claim owners, especially those of limited means. Many  men found it all they could do to  obtain crown grants tor their properties without paying stumpage  dues on the timber they needed,, or  paying $5 an acre extra for, surface  rights. He thought a crown grant  shough carry all snrface rights  with it and cited instances where,  hardship was worked by the existing law.  T. G. Procter agreed with, him  and pointed out thatjSurface rights  on land of more, value than the  average mineral claim (apart from  the niineral it contained) could be  bought for $1 an acre.  There was some divergence of  views as to the best method of obtaining the desired relief, and the  motion was referred to the com  mittee on resolutions".  W. B. Wilcox and R. B. Kerr of  Phoenix brought up the question of  defaulting   co-owners   in   mineral  claims, and introduced a resolution  advocating the adoption of the law  now in force in Colorado and other  states,   by   wnich   defaulting   co-  owners can be advertised out.   The.  complaining partner has to file an  affidavit with the mining recorder  that   he has   done   tbe necessary  work and has notified his co-owner  but has received no compensation  from him.    He must also advertise  in the Gazette and a local paper for  90 days, after which, if his partner  does-not pay up, he is entitled to'a  title to his share in the property.  .  R. B. Kerr in support of the resolution  said  that the present law,  under which a defaulting co-owner  can be  sued  for the money due,  works hardship in  some instances  in that it forces a man to keep up  his assessments on a property he  may wish to abandon.   The proposed amendment secured the man  who believed in the property and  also permitted a partner to drop  out if he wished to do so for any  reason.   The law worked well on  the other side.   -The motion   was  carried.  The urgent need of more wagon  roads and trails in the mining districts, and especially to the young  camps, was drawn attention" to by-  G. O. -Buchanan of Kaslo, who'  offered again the resolution adopted  last year by the associated .boards.  Taking the- Slocan as a text, he  showed how- miserably inadequate'  the government appropriations had  been in the past for roads, trails  and bridges.' "  , Mr. Galloway of Greenwood then  brought forward a plan which he  thought would meet the case, and  which certainly has the merit of originality. He proposed .that each  mining division should have a  board of five members who should  have control of apportion of'the^  revenues of the district with^ which  necessary roads and trails should  be constructed. " Of the five members, three should be elected j one,  the nominee of-the government and  one the local mining recorder. - He  further proposed .that- any mine  owner in acamp'tapped by a proposed "rbacl or' trail;-" should,"under'  proper supervision, be permitted to  do $200 worth of work on behalf of  each claim he possessed, such work  to count as assessment work or towards a crown grant.  A general discussion ensued, in  which Mr. .Galloway's scheme was  generally ' commended. Mr. McMillan of Rossland, however, stated  that he had been instructed to  bring forward a resolution approving of the mining commission  named in the speech from the  throne, and asking that - their  powers be extended to deal with  the question of roads and bridges  and that to pass such a resolution  would be asking the government to  do a thing and then ,telling them  how to' do it. Duncan Ross remarked that such a course could  not do much good, as he had noticed in_THE_TBigUNE that the mining committee of the legislature  had reported against the appointment of such a commission. G. O.  Buchanan, the mover of the resolution, remarked that though all recognized the necessity of action,  there was some divergence of opinion as to the best' remedy, and accordingly he accepted the suggestion, now that the matter had been  debated, that the motion be referred to the committee on resolutions. This was. done, and the  afternoon session closed.v  Evening Session.  The associated boards of trade  held an evening session last night,  assembling at 8:30 o'clock. The  first business that came up was the  motion regarding the assayers' examination referred to above. The  motion, as sent down by the committee on resolutions, was unanimously adopted and read as follows:  That this meeting desires., to call  the attention of the government to  the injustice of certain of the provisions of the act of 1899 known as  an act to amend the Bureau of  Mines Act, whereby in opposition  to the spirit of British law  and to all precedent, retroactive legislation is made to  injuriously effect the rights  and interests of an important  body of professional men. This  association approves of the principle of an examination in assaying  and the issuance of a certificate of  proficiency by the government as  an antecedent to men not already  established in business being permitted to engage in assaying in  this province.    And  further this  association, having, heard the statement and suggestions submitted by  J. Cuthbert Welsh', assayer at the  Trail smelter, tov the minister of  mines and other1 ministers of the  crown, hereby heartily endorses  the same and trusts that the suggestions therein dealt with will receive consideration and be acted  upon during the present session of  the legislature. And that this  association also strongly urges the  desirability of. holding, examinations for assayers annually in the  raining districts as well as in  Victoria.   -       J ,_**���*" '  R. **B." Kerr "arid E. Spraggett  moved that the association,endorse  the application for a. charter for a  tramway from Grand, Forks to the  village of Carson^-on the international boundary. , The ground  taken by the gentlemen who spoke  to the resolution .was that the importation of silicious ores from the  Republic Camp7'*would "materially  reduce the cost' of. smelting, and  thereby provide for the profitable  operation of the" properties which  otherwise might" remain idle,' thus  proving of material benefit to the  province generally and the Boun-'  dary country, particularly.  T. W. Holland, who happened "to  ���be in the city en route" to Victoria  to assist" in securing the charter,  was present and introduced to the  meeting. / He asked the endorsation. of the board. "He"gave some  information regarding the enterprise, stating that? 'the Toronto  Trusts Sc Guarantee Company was  behind -the proposition. The prb=  moters were .Hon;'-J. R." Stratton,  provincial secretary of Ontario,  Mr. Coffey, manager of the Trusts  & Guarantee ^Company, Mr. Holland, manager'of the Western Fed-,  eration Loan Company,, and himself: They were proposing to build  a road for the profit to accrue from  the traffic and for) the benefit which  property belonging to them in the  district would receive. ~   ���  A lengthy discussion followed on  the topic, R". * B. '"Kerr of. Phoenix  making a particularly strong ��� and  eloquent address in behalf of the  convention endorsing the application for the charter.,  The-convention, was .divided in  sentiment asftp whether the specific  charter-ih���question-'should be en-,  dorsed or an endorsation given on  general lines' favoring the granting  of charters where the government  was convinced 'of the applicants'  bona fides, and to settle this point  the matter was referred to a subcommittee whicli will report today.  In regard to the surface rights of  mineral claims, the convention  adopted the following resolution :  Believing that the title to crown  granted ��� mineral claims should be  full and perfect and that all the  surface rights of such claims should  belong absolutely to the grantee;  be it  Resolved���That this association  do petition the provincial government ' to change -the law. so that  owners of mineral claims may be  allowed to acquire the surface thereof at the same prices as would be  _paid_if_the_purchase_were-made under the Land Act; provided, that  application shall be made within six  months after tho crown grant is  issued.  H. J.' Byers and D. Ross introduced a resolution pledging the association to urge the postoffice department to establish a daily mail  service among the towns of Eastern  British Columbia, where a daily  service is in operation, and that a  mail car should be put on the  Crow's Nest Pass road between  Medicine Hat and Kootenay Landing,   Carried..   i     .  The matter of bringing the resources of British Columbia to2 the  attention: of ������ English; ��� investors  through an exhibit of minerals' at  Glasgow, Scotland, was gone, into  and universally approved, and a  resolution was passed recommending the government to take action  in this direction. G. 6. Buchanan  followed up the question by recommending that the government work  out a comprehensive scheme whereby a representative exhibit would  be arranged and sent from poi nt to  point where exhibitions were to be  held.  A resolution was carried urging  the government to appoint a su-  preme.court judge for the interior  to expedite the administration of  justice.       . ���';..  Moved by R. B. Kerr, seconded  by G. Whitesides and resolved,  whereas the county boundaries  should be adapted to transportation facilities so that communication may be easy between  all parts of each county,  and whereas the northern parts of  Kootenay   and  Yale '. are   closely  bound together by one railway and  their southern parts by another,  there is no proper connection between the northern aud "southern  parts of Yale or between the same  portions of Kootenay and whereas  great sums of money are annually  wasted _ by the Dominion and  provincial governments ,in transportation this association recommends the abolition of the present  line of division between Kootenny  and Yale and the substitution of a  line running east and west which  will place all points on the main,  line of the C. P. R. in one county  and all points on the Crow's Nest  and Columbia & Western railways in another.  . This closed the proceedings ��� and  an adjournment was made till this  morning at 10 o'clock in Fraternity  hall.    TRIED TO KILL THE SHAH  - Gigantic Vizier Handy.  Paris, , August 2.���An attempt  was madejtoday to assassinate the  shah of Persia as he was leaving  his residence.' An eye witness of  the attempt said:  "When the gate of the palace  opened the first carriage to appear  contained the shah.   He sat at the  right hand side with his doctor be-  side him.   Opposite were the grand  vizier and general Parent, the per-;  sonal aide of the shah.   The car-;  riage turned to. the left toward.thV  avenue, but it had not gone far  when a man dressed as a carpenter  rushed toward the carriage and put  his right foot on the step, resting  his left hand on the door to assist  him in the mount; then drawing  his right hand from his pocket, he  pushed it towards the breast of the"  shah.. This hand carried a revolver.  , "The   shah   was .surprised   but  did not really pay much attention  to the man until he perceived the  weapon.     Then lie bounded aside  and   standing- up   in the landau,  lifted a cane, a second later bringing it down upon the -head of his  assailant.'* ' At the" same moment  the grand*yizer.jumped to his feet  and seized, the man by-the arm-and  twisted his ? wrist, actually raisings  him from the'gYo'und.     The grand  vizer is a veritable giant and without apparent effort he held the aggressor in the air.   Then a policeman following on a bicycle jumped  from his wheel and grasped   the  man,   drawing   him back.     Other  police   arrived and the man  was  overpowered and led away."  The shah did not appear to be  excited by the attempt, and when  the man had been led away he reseated himself in his carriage and  quietly, spoke in Persian to the  grand vizier. Then the carriage  proceeded to the Alexander III.  bridge, where a boat was taken for  Sevres.  The pistol carried by 'the would-,  be murderer was of the bull dog  type, loaded Avith five .cartridges.^   When the police seized the man,  be tried to break away shouting  "To my assistance friends." Then  he quieted down, and permitted  himself to be taken off. When the  knife was found on his person, an  officer remarked: "You also had a  knife," to which the man replied,  "Yes, I took some precautions."  "Why did you attempt to assassinate the shah ?" the officer asked.  "Because," was the reply, "it  pleased me. That does not concern  you."  To all other questions the prisoner remained dumb.  When the officials tried to interrogate the prisoner this afternoon,  he maintained absolute silence.  Nothing would induce Inni to say a  word. He struggled desperately to  avoid a picture being taken, and  had to be bound hand and foot and  his head held between the knees of  the photographer's assistant. The  impression is gaining ground that  he is an Italian. He certainly is a  native_of some southern country.  ��*5*---*acf_  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL: ';"'��� ^gf  'TWO DOLLARS A YEAR.  ~~ -''7/JSf  "  '    * '���*.J./'%},^\  <      ' ��� .    * ' . -  7'" /** ���*&__  -l.'-o, -", jff  ���m-���m^^m_____mm_____m_mm____________m_____________m_____m____m r*jif i_ f  __x\Sf.*,\  PRICE FIVE CENTS  FRENCH CAPITAL COMINClNl  Kaslo'Mining Notes.   1���;���"IIt���~     ~  at European capitals, pas t cabled  the governor of Shan Tung a demand that the] mem'bers *"���'of "-���the*  legations be permitted free telegraphic communication with their  government and be sent to Tien-Tsin  under Chinese escort.

Ymir, August 2.���[Special to The  Tribune].���Though the fire is still  raging the town is out of all danger. The flames are still travelling  in the direction of 'Wild Horse  creek. Some doubt still exists as  to the fate of the Dundee concentrator, some saying that it is destroyed and others that it escaped  tbe flames. In the meantime it is  impossible to get near to find out.  Charles Dundee, president of the  Dundee "Gold Mining Company, is  here, and will go out to the mine as  soon as it is possible.  Eifle Matches.  Another window target has been  added to the local range, and the  biitts have been enlarged so that  now four men can shoot at once.

It is safe to say that the Conservative members of the legislature, who are loudest in the denunciation of premier Laurier  upon the Chinese and Japanese  labor question, will fall down when  it comes to voting for the Mclnnes  labor bill. They do not desire to re-  strict the immigration and employment of Chineso and Japanese go  much as they desire to embarass  the Liberal administration at Ottawa. They will cheerfully condemn  Laurier for hot going far enough in  his policy of restriction, but they  will find plenty of excuses for pursuing the same policy themselves.  Within the next few days, with  smelters running at Nelson, at  Trail, at Grand Forks and at  Greenwood, the people of Kootenay  and Yale will have an actual taste  of that "growing- time" which the  people of the East have in their  imagination through reading political journals. ,.

"Thirty-seven   knots,"   said   the  note handed down to the engine-  room, where you could not hear  yourself speak in the turmoil of flying machinery.     The grave chief  engineer permitted himself the luxury of an unofficial smile, and' her  majesty's ship Viper tore along, a  mad thing, belching heavy volumes  of smoke from her flaming funnels  as she traced on the dappled blue of  the calm summer sea a broad river  of foam. o She was doing .something  never before accomplished in the  history of the world, and demonstrating a fact bound to have influence in the future both in war  and peace.     She had outstripped  the   performance   of  her   nearest  competitor, the Albatross, not by a  few furlongs, but by a leap of seven  miles in the hour.: In May last she,  had recorded such a figure as 84f  knots,   which    would   have   been  creditable, and; more,   to another  craft;.-';. but.' from her creatorj Hon;  Charles A. Parsons, to the boy who  rang the. signal-bell, all knew that  she had never let herself go, and  .now she.had justified their faith by  covering the measured mile at a  speed of 37.113 knots, or forty-three  miles   an   hour.   If she had failed  she would have had a good excuse;  for her engineers had seized the occasion to go on strike, and she was  handled by a scratch crew, chiefly  apprentices; therefore she was delayed in leaving the works at Wall-  send-on-the-Tyne until Mr. Parsons,  workmanlike and grimy in blue  overalls, had gone carefully " over  her machinery to make "sure ithat  nothing had been maliciously deranged.  At eleven o'clock she glided off,  making for Tynemouth at a steady  "pace~of7L6"knots_an���hour.     The"  motion was delightful, without a  trace of rocking or vib��tion.   The  trial was unofficial, but the Viper  had on board Messrs. Ball, Laughrin,  Wright    and   Hobson,    admiralty  overseers, who checked the times,  as well as Hon. G.  L. Parsons, J.  Denny, Mr. Leyland, Mr. Marshall,  Mr. S win ton and several other gentlemen interested in marine engineering.   Turning northwards from  the mouth of the river the speed  quickened, and as the posts south  of St. Mary's Island, which mark  the beginning of the measured mile,  were coming into line, she had got  into her stride.   She was to be under full speed for an hour and to  make six runs over the mile." "Now,  boys, do your best for an hour,"  had said the captain before the men  went to their, stations; and they  did.   The Viper's first  effort was  satisfactory.     "36.585   knots," . reported the   timekeeper when   the  bell had rung to signal the passing  of the second pair of mile-posts.  ._  Round she swept in a splendid  curve, marked on the sea by the  foam and in the air by the smoke  wreaths.   Over the mile she dashed  again, but she disappointed her admirers, for she only achieved 35.503'  knots.   Possibly   her   comparative  failure put her on her mettle, for,'  while the   spirits   of her anxious  friends drooped, she prepared for  her supreme effort.   In the engine-  room, the chief engineer, surrounded by his dials, which keep him in  touch with all parts of the machinery, heard the whirr of its rotation  become a whistle.

In a torpedo-  boat driven by ordinary engines at  full speed the sensation is as if the  vessel were walking hurriedly and  stealthily over the water on the  blades of her propellers. The Viper  at her highest speed glides steadily  "forward=a-Jurio^rn"ong"sh~ips, and  her speed was 37.113 knots���forty-  three miles an hour for tho first  time since ships were. ��� Grimy devils  from the inferno below, emerging  quickly from the stockhold covers,  af if the forced draught were propelling them, asked what had been  done, and hearing, cooled contentedly.  Thrice more the Viper covered  the mile, once equalling her best  effort, and on the other runs doing  36.585 knots and 30.072 knots.  "She's been doing over 36^ for the  last half hour," remarked" a timekeeper, just before the last run.  For the mean of her two best runs  with and against "the tide, she recorded 36.849 knots, and for the admiralty mean of the six runs 36.581  knots.  If you imagine a drum revolving  inside a barrel and having a great  number of small vanes set slantingly  on its circumference, and imagine  further that steam is admitted in  one end of the barrel,.and to find  its way out at the other end has to  rush past, these vanes,:acting upon  them like the sails of a windmill,  you will have a rough idea of the  principle of the steam turbine.  The steam is at high pressure���up  to 200 pounds during the.'trials������  and as it expands in its progress  through the cylinder, so the -vanes  are enlarged to give it a greater  surface on which to exert its diminishing force. A result of this system is to utilize a far greater proportion of the energy of the steam  than is possible in other types of  engine. As the turbine is a rotary  engine, it can be run at a very high  rate of evolution. In the trials a  mean of 1170 revolutions was registered, while with the reciprocating  engines usual in ships a speed of  over 400 revolutions becomes iujuri-  ous'to the machine. The Viper has  four turbines, driving ahead, a high  pressure and a low pressure on each  side. Each drives a separate shaft,  and two propellers are mounted on  each shaft, eight in all.  Since a , turbine- cannot be reversed,' separate motors have to be  provided for, going astern. The  Viper has two, one on each side.  As a matter of fact, she was tried  yesterday for speed in going astern,  but, although she could travel backwards fast enough, she could not  be steered, and the test was, therefore, abandoned until such time as  the difficulty has been surmounted.

Lord Boberts as a Horseman.  Lord Roberts has few equals in  the handling of sword and lance,  says a writer in the new Penny  Magazine for May. He was always  especially fond of "tent-pegging,"  and so excelled in the difficult diversion that he carried off the first  prize at "the Indian tournament  from the whole Indian army when  he was already pasthissixtieth year.  The love of free, rapid movement  soon made him an accomplished  cyclist, and he did much of his  work in Ireland, especially at  manoeuvres, "on the wheel.!' He so  believed in his bicycle that he induced his staff to follow his example, although all were not equally equipped for riding it. There  were many occasions at the Cur-  ragh when lord Roberts led them a  a fine dance and distanced everybody. He has preserved to advanced age the small, spare, wiry  figure which has made him almost  impervious, to fatigue. In youth,  no doubt, he was of delicate consti-  tion, and the tradition survives that when at' school he  was liable to heart failure,  which ; obliged him to keep  wine by his beside to . take if suddenly attacked. He was still constantly liable to fever, although his  abstemious habits and devotion to  open air exercise helped him to conquer the Indian climate. On the fam  ous marchf rom Cabul to Candahar he  was, however, suffering from an  acute attack, and it speaks volumes  for his unconquerable spirit that he  traveled nearly the whole distance,  300 miles, in a dhoolie (litter), being  quite unable to sit on his horse.  Yet, sick and suffering though he  was, he never relaxed his watchful  care over the force he was leading  iuto the unknown.  New Transatlantic Cable.  Montreal, August 1���The C.P.R.  Telegraph announces that the Commercial Company's new cable to the  Azores islands is laid and'in operation.     It connects at the island of  Payal with the Europe's and Azores  company's cable from the Azores to  Portugal, and completes the Com-  mercial's fourth route across the  Atlantic. It is the first cable to connect the Azores direct with America.  It also opens direct communication  for   the   first   time    between   the  United States and Portugal.   The  Europe     and   Azores     company's  cable makes connection at Lisbon  with the Portuguese land line and  the Eastern Telegraph Company's  cable to Spain, the Mediterranean  ports, Africa, India,  Cliina, Japan,  Au&tralia and the Philippines, and  with the Western  Telegraph Company's cables to Brazil, Argentina  and other ports of South America.  The new route via the Azores is the  most direct, shortest and quickest  to all of these countries.  Island of Tutila Ceded.  Washington, August 2.���Commander Benjamin F.Tilley.incharge  of the United States naval station  on the island of Tutila, Samoa,  transmits in a recent report to the  navy department upon the condition of affairs on the island, "an  instrument of cession" transmitted  by the chiefs of Tutila and the  United States government. The  document formally cedes and transfers to commander Tilley, as the  representative of the United-States  government, the island of Tutila  and Aunnu, and all other  islands, rocks, reefs, foreshores  and waters lying between  degrees of latitude and longitude  named, to erect the same into a  separate district to be known as  the district of Tufcila. The "instrument of cession" was signed by the  marks of twenty-two chiefs With  their seals affixed on the 17th of  April last, immediately prior to the  raising of the Stars and Stripes  over the naval station at Pagopago.  The provisions of the. government  set forth that the chiefs of .the  towns shall be entitled to retain  their individual .control of these  towns providing the same shall be  in accordance with the laws of the  United States concerning Tutila. It  also provides that this;government  shall respect and protect the individual rights of the people to their  land and property and that should  the government require their lands  it shall take the same by .payment'  of a fair consideration.'' .  . si.,;t-,._..,.  *,   .*���   -V.'a^-fe*?,*^*  *< -. <�����- '* --r '"   ^-'}k:"^;P't'^i^_\g  0L _t^0   __\W__f ���.______}-   ______%    _______ < *_____#   *P   -       _AM__W * *\  TBU9T' HOUSl  ' '    * *    (   * t       j *��� .     ���*���"'���  l&fe* 1  AMERICAN  AND y>  EUROPEAN  PLANS '  ���*���' * sal  r._*.r*x_\  . i   A  J.  s  W|adden House '^r^r  The only hotel In Nelson that has remalnoA  under one management eiaoe ISO.
