 ____>  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVEJ DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR.  JSTELSON:  TUESDAY MORNING SEPTEMBER 4 J900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  I  PAY OF OFFICIALS STOPPED  y  From Viceroy Downward.  Lo; *)ON, September _.���4:10 a. _a.  ���The'latest reliable dispatch under  a Pekin date is now nearly a fortnight old. An undated dispatch  has been received at Vienna reporting that'the allied troops arrived  at Pekin, marching through the  imperial palace on August 28, but  it was known that this date had  been fixed by the allied commanders  I'or a formal promenade. There is  no other news of any kind. The  Hong Kong correspondent of the  Daily-Mail says thafc the Canton  officials have been ordered to transmit all possible revenue to the  north for war expenses, and thafc  all pay of officials, from the viceroy  down-ward, has been stopped during  hostilities.  The Vienna correspondent of tlio  Standard telegraphs that he learns  from a good source that tho Germans, Austrians and Italians will  remain in Pekin after the .Russian  withdrawal.  Shang-Hai and Houg Kong dispatches express the utmost astonishment ab the idea of evacuating  Pekin.  The Daily News suggests, editorially, that Russia may have  made secret terms with China behind the backs of the powers.  The Standard expresses gratification afc the explanation that tho  United States government does not  approve of the Russian proceedings.  The Daily Express publishes an  interview with a New York Chinaman, Liu Chuah, who admits Li  Hung Chang's "duplicity and rooted  antagonism to western ideas," but,  thinks that the allies have no0choice  but to negotiate with him or to ro-  . tire from China forever.  M. de Blowitz, the Paris correspondent of tho Times, asserts that  the origin of Russia's decision to  evacuate Pekin was her desire to  frustrate- the-schemes of emperor  "William and-to correct the impression produced by the kaiser's speech,  attributing to emperor Nicholas the  initiative  in  the   appointment   of  field marshal count yon Waldersee  ; to the command of the international  ���* forces.  murdered right and left, and do  still. I believe we were granted  one day to loot, bufc this was soon  stopped. The American quarter  has been quiet, aud avo guard it as  best we can wifch our .mall garrison.  The Chinese dead are buried and  the town is cleared up and peaceable. Thero were 2000 dead Chinese, aud probably one third of the  city is burned by shot and shell  and incendiaries. Ou account of  the crowded condition of the city  it would be a good thing if one half  of it wero destroyed."  YU MURDERED FOREIGNERS  Notes From Fekin.  Pekin, Tuesday, August 2.���Ping  Ching is endeavoring to open  negotiations with the allies.  Yu Hsien, governor of Shang-Hai,  has sent a memorial to the throne  asking for a reward for having invited fifty-two foreigners under his  protection and for having afterwards killed them.  In the provisional government  established here each nationality  administers laws according to "its  own ideas.  There is a possibility of the Pekin  dispatches being somewhat in error  as to the identity of the Chinese  official who is asking a reward for  murdering fifty-two foreigners. A  dispatch to the Associated Press  from Chee-Foo, dated August 29th,  said Yu, the governor of the province of Shen-Si, was reported to  have invited the foreigners in that  province to come under his protection. Ifc was added that about  August 21st fifty foreigners accepted the invitation and all were  massacred. Probably Yu, governor  of Shen-Si, is identical with Yu  Hsien, who is referred to in the  Pekin dispatches as "governor of  Shang-Hai."  Cigarmakers Win.  New York, September 3.���Two  members of the cigar manufacturers' combine which locked oufc its  union employes twenty-six mouths  ���s ago have surrendered uncondi-  _ tionally, and it is believed tho union  1 will Avin a complete victory. The  j strike has envolved 10,000 persons  I' in this city and has spread to Phila-  \ delphia, Lancaster, Pa., York and  1 McSherrytown, Pa., whore 30,000  .j more workers have been called out  ';, in brauch factories operated by  4 members of the manufacturers'  ., combine. It has cost the Cigar-  }| makers' International union jnearlyi  f $2007000, and the cost to the manufacturers they can not themselves  estimate. The factories have been  idle for six months, and much of  the trade losfc in that time has been  driven to other firms and to other  cities and can never be regained.  , A Pretty Tough Yarn.  %   Niagara Palls, New "York, September 3.���A party of twenty Can-  fi'adiaus, most of them said to hail  j from Toronto, came to Echota today  a to carry out a footrace for a purse  and prizes said to aggregate $1000.  i'f A difficulty arose over the decision  ' of the referee, and the Canadians  ] engaged in a fierce quarrel.   They  went to Salt's hotel to settle the  affair, but quarrelled so furiously  that thoy were pufc out.    Going to  a dock at the foot of Sugar street  ijthey continued the brawl.   Rufus  jiHall, who keeps a saloon near the  eplace, undertook to drive the men  I away with a shot gun.   He is said  iifto have fired bird shot into the  'crowd,  whereupon the  Canadians  scattered,    boarding    trolley cars  [|bound      in    various     directions.  Several of the fleeing men were seen  to grasp their arms and legs as if  wounded. 7   Two Thousand Dead Chinese.  p Denver, Colorado, September 3.  If���Major Hopper of this city has re-  ���|ceived a   letter   from   Lieutenant  ^Coolidge, dated Tien-Tsin, China,  1st 8fch; . Lieutenant Coolidge  Rled the Ninth infantry in its attack  Kon the inner walls of Tien-Tsin.  jfThe letter gives an account of the  ||5ghting at Tien-Tsin and continues:  I| 'The Japs looted the Chinese houses,  ibu'fc the French were entirely in the |  Banks to Combine.  .  New York, September 3.���In  connection with _ the -statement  made yesterday of the purchase by  a syndicate of a controlling interest  of the Ninth National bank in this  city with Alva Trowbridge as president, announcement was made today that overtures were made to  tho National Citizen's bank, the  People's bank, the Pacific bank, the  Mechanics' and Traders' bank and  tho East River National bank for  an amalgamation of all these institutions with the Ninth. It is not  known just how far negotiations  for the absorption of the banks  have progressed, but it is stated  that most of the bank presidents  mentioned, favor the proposition  advocated by the syndicate and the  probability is that all will come in.  New Trial Ordered.*  Philadelphia, September 3.���  Orders have been received from St.  Petersburg by the Russian naval  _inspectors=at=C-amps^=ship=yards  which will necessitate a new trial  for the cruiser Variag before her  formal acceptance by the Russian  government. This is due to the accident which happened during the  last trial, when the head of, one of  the high-pressure cylinders was  cracked. No date for the new trial  has been decided upon. A sustained speed of twenty-three knots  for twelve hours is required by the  contract. This vessel exceeded this  by one and six-tenths knots for six  consecutive hours when the accident occurred.  A SUCCESSFUL CELEBRATION  At Eossland.  Rossland, September 3.���In more  ways than one it could be said of  today that it was the finest celebration of Labor day yefc held in this  city.   In the first placethe weather  was most excellent and a better day  for the sports could hardly have  been wished.   There was  hardly a  cloud in the sky, and yet the heat  was tempered by the. breeze from  the   north.     Then, in tho second  place, the wholo people seemed to  turn out with a will and seemed to  be determined to make a success of  the celebration.    The crowds on the  streets    were   goodtempered   and  watched  the , various   events and  listened to the music of the bands,  the Star Cornet aud the City baud  with much interest.   Interspersed  with the purely Labor element of  the city there were to be seen sandwiched amid the crowds the well  known forms of many of the business men of the city.    The floats  were a great success and gave rise  to many plaudits.   The procession  gave   a   very   vivid   idea ��� of the  strength of the union element of,  the city. -       _  Tne' speeches, made by mayor  Goodeve, Chris Foley, James Willis  and Arthur Ferris were appreciated by the listeners, who interrupted the speakers only by applause. The entertainment consisted of a- street parade; participated in by the various unions and  floats of business firms. This was  followed by speaking,, and then  came the sports, drilling contests,  firemen's contests and foot and  bicycle races. One of the principal  sporting events of the day was the  rock-drilling contest, in which there  were four entries, and which was  won by Mike Burns aud Dan Leary,  sociation of New York is announced.

The letter says : " I arrived here  last evening afc 8 o'clock.   While  coming down the Yukon we stopped  at various places to wood up, and  whertver possible I made obserA-a-  fcions.   Afc a place called Greyling,  some 500 miles from here, I saw  that the natives Avere sick in nearly  every tent upon the shore line and  Avere   in   a   deplorable    condition.  Some were lying groaning on the  ground.   I   saw   one   man sitting  Avith   his   Avhole body naked and  coughing and groaning.    The pity  of ifc Avas  that nothing Avas being  done   for their relief.     Even the  sub-treasurer       at       the     place  was       sick       in       bed.        This  morning   the    Bear - arrived from  Siberia and different points  along  the Alaskan coast and Sfc. Lawrence  island, aud reports a terrible state  of affairs among the natives.   In  some"places"th"e"native_"rel)W^fc_tirat"  more than one-half of them - liaAre  died., and Avhere tiie revenue officers  have been able to investigate about  one-fourth   have   died.     The   epidemic seems  to come in tho form  of grip, attended by pneumonia or  measles, or both.   The natives seem  to   become   stupefied  and  utterly  helpless and lie down to die.    I find  the officers of the treasury department have  taken tho matter up iu  the name   of   tho   government to  give the speediest possible assistance."  Governor Brady commends lieutenant H. Jarvis of the revenue  cutter service as oue Avho takes a  real interest in the natives, and is  a proper medium for giving relief  to the stricken.  GERMANY WILL NOT GIVE UP  Her Grip on Pekin.  Berlin, September 3.���Negotiations continue between the powers  respecting the propositions of  Russia. It appears that the portion of the proposal which contemplates the removal of the legations  to- Tien-Tsin does not meet AA'ith  opposition, bufc the proposal that  the troops should vacate Pekin Avill  not bo acted upou until after  thorough examination of the case  by other powers Avith a special view  to the question of military advisability. Germany's program is to  await the action of the other  powers. Count von Buelow, the  German foreign minister, has made  a communication to this effect to  the Russian ambassador, count von  der Ostensacken.  A high official of the German  office said today, in defining Germany's position: "Germany has not  answered Russia formally, although  she has informed her confidentially  as to the views of the German government. Certainly we do not object to the removal of the legations  temporarily to Tien-Tsin, as this  would enable the members to recuperate from their recent hardships. So far as the answer of the  United States to Russia is concerned, we now see it to be in substantial agreement with Germany's  position."  Most of the German papers are  of the opinion thafc ifc is Arery doubtful if Germany can adopt Russia's  suggestions, and. they deplore the  evidence of a threatening split in  the European concert. One leading  Berlin journal asserts that emperor  William, while conversing with a  group of officers last Saturday  evening, said: "Under no conditions  shall AA'e give up Pekin, not even if  every army corps has to be mobilized."  I beg to assure you I have never  relaxed my efforts to urge thafc  your release ought to be granted.  I feel strongly, as I have felt from  the start, that you ought never to  have been convicted, and this  opinion I very clearly expressed to  Mr. Asquith, but I am very sorry  to say, hitherto Avithout effect.  Rest assured that I shall renew my  representations to the incoming  home secretary, whoever he may  be, as soon as the government is  formed and the secretary is ,, in a  positioii to deal with such matters."  HILL GOES TO WASHINGTON  7 -jd  ~_I  Phoenix a Great Camp.  Pucenix, September 3.���Since the  Old Ironsides and Knob Hill began,  sending ore to the Granby .'smelter,  at the rate of ten cars or 300 tons  daily a Aveek ago, Phoenix has made  a jump to the second camp in British Columbia in point of ore shipments. Ph(cnix itself and the  camps to which it is the nearest  banking and business center are  shipping 3500 tons of copper-gold  ore per week, or 135,000 tons per  year. The Knob Hill and Old Ironsides are shipping at the rate of  2,100 tons Aveekly, Avhich will be  again doubled in about tAvo AA'eeks,  when the new Knob Hill compressor  is installed and at Avork breaking  down ore. The B. C. mine is shipping 150 tons daily, or over 1000  tons Aveekly, over the Phcenix spur.  Other mines near here, such as the  Golden CroAvn, Winnipeg aud Athel-  stau, are also shipping steadily.  Bufc one mining camp in the province now exceeds Phcenix in point  of shipments, and that is Rossland.  A FREIGHT TRAIN WRECKED  Opposite Grohman Creek.  A. C. P. R. freight train was  wrecked about _:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon at trestle No. 57,  opposite the mouth of Grohman  creek. The train Avas an extra  freight proceeding toward Nelsou  at a moderate rate of speed. Conductor Irving was in charge. No  one was injured.  Just as the train approached the  trestle a couple of cars jumped the  track. The wheels tore up the  sleepers and finally smashed down  a couplp of bents, leaving" a gap  into which three cars piled, falling  to the ground some forty or fifty  feefc beloAv. The locomotive with  sixteen cars was safely across and  pulled into Nelson. The van in  which the crew were riding remained on the west side of the  trestle with several1 cars. The  damaged rolling stock consisted of  two refrigerator cars and one box  car.  The emergency train was dispatched to the scene of the wreck  in haste, and the work of repairing  the damaged trestle was begun  within an hour or so. Trainmaster  Hamilton was in charge. Superintendent Troup was on the way to  Rossland when he learned of the  accident, and immediately returned  to look into. 1 matters personally.  The Rossland train,was a couple of  hours late owing> to^the, jelelay _in  transferring passengers"''and 'bag-'  gage around the damaged trestle.  Repairs are being made rapidly and  the line will be open over trestle 57  by tomorrow night.  As Head of State Department.  Washington,  September   3.���A  dispatch from minister Conger was ,-  received by the state department  today.' It Avas chiefly interesting^  from the fact that it was the first  word from him since his message of ���>  about the 27th ultimo referring to J  the    proposed   parade   of   troop's '"  through   the   imperial    palace. ,iu.  Pekin.   Like that, his dispatch is 7  dateless as to Pekin.   The contents  were not made public, but it was ..  stated that- ifc   contained nothing "e  materially changing the situation.  The lack of a date led to a deter mi-���" agnation  to take energetic steps by.  which all dispatches hereafter coining to the state department from,'_  China will have the date clearly *'-  stated. ^ ;  Two   other - dispatches   received"'*  today from China refer to the gen-"'j'>'  eral health of   the troops, which is7',  satisfactory.   It cannot be learned',  that there   is   any agreement be- -  fcween   the   powers   touching   the*,'  withdrawal   of   the   internationals-  forces from Pekin.   The plain inference   is   thac   the   powers' are "-.  acting upon the hint conveyed in../"  the late note from the state depart-. *':'  ment, and are bringing all their in-/'  fluence to bear upon Russia to try {*.  and induce her to change her views,. i���  as to the withdraAval of her troops.7 *  It is noted as a fact of great sig-.- -.  hificance that the proposal is being7'"^ISi  made to have prince Ching return'^,' i'^f  to   Pekin   as   acting   head of-the       '"  Chinese government.

Rossland, September 3.���In connecting the Avorkings at the new  shaft to those of the old at the 200-  foot level on the Nickel Plate a fine  body af ore Avas encountered in the  crosscut about tAvo Aveeks ago.  Thi3 has since been proved in two  places. In the second a stopo has  been commenced, which is 28 feet  wide and of a good shipping value  ���clear across its Avidfch. This lies  aboufc 200 feet south of the main  zouo of the mino and is practically  a new ore body, which it is thought,  Avill prove equal in extent to thafc  of the old.

Strike at Phoenix.  Phoenix, September 3.���The War  Eagle mine, in this camp, has made  another excellent find of ore. Last  week workmen began sinking in an  old prospecting shaft east of the  main shaft about 175 feet. It had  been decided to continue this old  shaft to the 100-foot level, as it was  knoAvn that there Avas some ore  there. As sinking continued the  ore grew better and wider, and  miners were Avorking all last week  in a fine grade copper sulphide ore.  So far they have sunk over thirty  feet and are still in good paying  rock. The entire bottom of the shaft  is      in      excellent      chalcopyrite  Resident manager Buck���says-  that in the new find the ore is of  better quality than that found in  the west raise a short timo ago,  where tests resulted in securing  values of $21.60 in gold and copper.  Established a Record.  Grand Forks, September 3.���  Tho Granby smelter continues to  run very smoothly. Thus far only  one furnace, is in operation. Although its nominal capacity is only  250 tons per day, ifc established a  record two days this Aveek by reducing 310 and 318 tons of ore respectively for tho twenty-four  hours. This is duo to the fact that  tho ores of the Knob Hill and Old  Ironsides, iioav being treated, aro  self-fluxing, not requiring tho addition of limestone. Tho second carload of matte will be shipped to  NeAV York on Tuesday.  Serious Fire at Guaymas.  Nogales, Arizona, September 3.���  A serious fire occurred at Guaymas,  Sonora, Mexico, last night, Avhich  consumed the general merchandise  establishment of F. A, Aguilar.

Washington, September 3.���The  navy department has just received  by mail tho official report of captain Wilde of the battleship  Oregon of the circumstances attending the grounding of that ship- in  the gulf of Pe-Chili last June, and  her-successful salvage. The report  goes to confirm the department's  preA'iously expressed conviction  that the grounding was not in any  respect attributable to fault on the  part of captain Wilde^orany officer���  of the Oregon, Avho in fact appear  to have exercised extraordinary  precautions to guard against the  accident. The Oregon has now  been completely repaired and arrived yesterday at Woo-Sung,  where sho is to form one of the  international fleet to guard the  transport service during the  existence of the Chinese troubles.  rJ"'d  ���-vii  Blockade in Kansas.  Kansas Citv, September 3.���The  extensive yards of tho Santa Fo  railroad in Argentine are almost  exclusively occupied Avith cars of  Avhcat, Avhich ifc is almost impossible  to move. It was estimated thafc  there wero twenty miles of Avheafc  cars there this morning. The  trouble is said to be due to the inability of the Chicago division of  the road to handle tho great infloAV  of wheat from the various branch  lines in Kansas. The difficulty is  not so much from a car famine as  it is due to the lack of motive  power to keep the lines cleaned.  All the other roads in Kansas are  unable to handle the wheat offered.

IF YOU WANT  Pure  Groceries  at Honest  Prices  "RY-THE-  ���8  Bay  The proceedings of , the Liberal  convention which meets at Revel-  stroke tomorrow will be followed  with   interest  by the   electors of  Yale-Cariboo.    Opinion   is divided  '   as to whether the candidate to be  nominated will be a Nelson or a  Rossland man, but if a f?ood selection is made the candidate should  be the next member of the house of  commons.   In the approaching con-"  test in this constituency the- personality of the .candidate will in a  great measure determine the result..  It is the knowledge of  this fact  which will shut out the hope of all  non-resident aspirants.,  If every candidate for the house,  of commons in British Columbia  was pronounced in his support of  increased��� lead duties there would  be little doubt but that the desired  changes in the tariff would be secured. Protection is no longer an  issue betAveen the two political  parties of Canada. There is therefore no reason why the candidates  of either party should stand aloof  from a movement which promises  to greatly benefit the mining industry of. British Columbia. This  is an issue wliich should not be lost  sight of iu the present contest.  The man who represents Yale-  Cariboo in the house of commons  has a constituency which embraces  something like a dozen provincial  ridings of constituencies. If he  employed the whole of the interval  between sessions in travelling over  his constituency he would not havo  time to familiarize himself with it  during the life of al parliament.  Yet there has been much less heard  about inequalities in provincial  representation than in Dominion  representation.   From the Atlantic to the Pacific  the invalided' Canadians who have.  returned from South Africa have  received a fitting welcome. They  are worthy of all. praise. While  others gave from their purse the  Canadian volunteers placed their  lives in the scale. Without them  even the splendid gift of lord  Strathcona and Mount Royal would  have been futile. Many of the  brave boys will never come back.  Canada cannot overpay those who  ,do.    Yesterday was Nelson's lucky  day in sport. . The local marksmen  secured an easy victory-over -their  Rossland competitors at the rifle  range, aud at cricket a time limit  enabled Nelson to hang out another  victory.  cept the nomination offered him by  the national parfcy at the constitutional convention. He says he has  always kept out of politics, and  does not wish to enter now. The  national party did not join with  the other parties in a telegram sent  today to president McKiniey asking that the clause relating to the  future relations between the United  States and Cuba in the order calling the constitutional convention  be modified.  Contract From New Zealand.  St. Louis, September 3.���A local  car and foundry company has been  awarded a contract for constructing sixty-eight  passenger coaches  ,for the government of NowZealand.  Colored Man Hanged.  BAr.Ti.oi', Texas; September 3.���  Enoch Moss, colored, was hanged iu  the jail yard here today for the  murder of Neal Lane, white. Moss  confessed his guilt.  Ancient Sun Dials.  It is probable that the earliest  sun dial was simply the spear of  - some nomad chief stuck upright  iu the ��� ground before his . tent.  Among those desert wanderers,  keen to observe their surroundings,  it would not be a difficult thing  to notice that the shadow' shortened as the surf rose higher in the  sky and that the shortened shadow  always pointed in the same direc-  tion���riiorth. The recognition  would have followed very soon that  this noonday shadow changed in  its length from day to day. A six-  foot spear would give a shadow at  noonday in latitude 40 deg. of 12  feet at one time of the year, of less  than 2 feet at another. This instrument, so simple, so easily carried, so easily set up, may well have  begun the scientific study of astronomy, for it lent itself to measurement, and science is measure, and  DEBENTURES  FOR SALE  The City of Nelson, Biitish Columbia, has authorized the issue of debentures for the following  purposes:  815,000 for extending the Water-.

Not only wero  |they beiug drilled in the ordinary  'manual of arms, but they were put  ^through such exercises as scaling  Walls,   jumping   down   from  high  fembankments,swimming while bur-  !|dened with guns and accoutrements,  jetc.   They were also drilling with  jthe   heavy   broadswords   that re-  jfquire the use of both hands.    Even  Mthe school children were occupied  Jfat playing soldier.   The Japanese  |seem   imbued   with     a   spirit   of  "patriotism that makes them glory  fin the defense of their country and  [|in national achievements.   In this  ^respect  they   are   possessed more  Nearly of the American spirit than  ||any other nationality I. met with  |on my travels.  I " On the other hand, the Chinese  |are conspicuous by the apparent  ^entire absence of these qualities.  ^John Chinaman lives for himself  fjsolely.

T.  national events. I asked one who  could speak some English, and who  seemed above the average in intelligence, a question regarding the  effect of the late China -Japan  war. His reply was characteristic  _of_his_people:__Me_no_eare;_he-no-  pigeon of mine,' meaning it was no  concern of his.  "Notwithstanding the proverbial  density of   China's   population,   I  could not but notice that there are  large areas of uncultivated land on  the  summits of   the hills and up  along their sides.    Through fear of  highbinders and  other murderous  orders, as well as through racial  traditions, all, or nearly all, Chinamen sleep and live inside walled  cities or walled enclosures.   They  go out to till the fields, to fish, to  harvest their rice and other crops  during the day, but return at evening to their fortified villages.  They  till only tho land of the valleys as  a goneral thing.   The fact of all  the people of what may be a large  agricultural district being bunched  together in one walled enclosure or  city is what creates the impression  of the surfeit of population. In less  than one square mile of one portion of Shang-Hai there are said to  live over 500,000 people, which is  equivalent   to   one   inhabitant   to  every 55J square feet.  " The coolies get a mere pittance  for their labor, but at the same  time their labor is worth but little.  Every man in the lower classes  belongs to some organized body  whose head, or president, controls  him exactly as we would control a  dumb beast, so far as hiring him  out, collecting his hire and allotting  to each a portion of his earnings.  It is union labor reduced to an  absurdity, with this difference:  Here no union man is allowed to  charge less than a certain agreed  price, while there no one under fear  of being killed by his fellows, dare  ask or receive anything above the  Imperial Bank of Ganada  HEAD  OFFICE.

The rules of an order forbid-a member from taking care of  more than one horse: consequently  he was obliged to hire four coolies  to take care of the four horses.  "The primitive methods employed  in China are-astonishing^ to an  American who grows up surrounded  by the noise and hum of every kind  of labor-saving ^machinery. When  passing Canton river I saw a stern-  wheel boat, some -sixty feet in  length, slowly making its way up  stream. There was no smokestack  and no visible indication of motive  power that turned the wheel.  Imagine my surprise to see, as we  came up with the craft, some fifty  coolies ou a treadmill, exactly like  the old-fashioned horse-powers once  used to propel threshing machines  and other machinery in tuiscountry.  W. REINHARD, M. D.  General Practice. -  SPECIALTY: JSyo,   Ear  and   Nose.  The treadmill was geared up to the  wheel and the fifty Chinamen were  laboriously accomplishing about  the work of one average American  laborer; for .one man could easily  run an engine to furnish power and  find time also to chop wood necessary for fuel.  "While speaking of orders among  the lower classes I must not forget  to mention that even the beggars  are organized.

CITY LOCAL NEWS  William Burns, public school inspector, is looking for school teachers holding provincial certificates.  It is probable that several openings  will occur in this district shortly.  The city council meets tonight.  One of the important items of business is the city engineer's report on  the question of the electric light  power dam.  Howard Guest, the 0. P. R. brake-  man who was injured a couple of  weeks ago, is recovering rapidly at  the general hospital.  The local 0. P. R. officials were  notified yesterday that the earl of  .Minto and party would come down  the Columbia river today en route  to Rossland.     The local civic officials have had no response to the  invitation extended to the governor-  general to visit Nelson, and a telegram was sent' yesterday to reach  the vice-regal party at Arrowhead  Captain J. W. Troup left yesterday for Robson to" join R. Marpole,  general superintendent of the Pacific division of the C. P. R., who is  en route to Rossland.   Mr. Marpole  will be in the city tomorrow.  W. A. Goodchap, night yard-  master at the C. P. R. depot, left  yesterday for St. Louis, Missouri.  He has three months leave of  absence.  The plans and estimates for the  athletic park at the terminus of the  tramway line are practically complete, and a meeting will be held  shortly to forward the organization of a syndicate to carry the  plans into effect.  The tennis club will formally  wind up the season with a ball at  Fraternity hall tonight. Steiner's  orchestra will furnish the music.  The committee in charge consists of  Messrs. Crickmay, Selous, E. 0.  Brown and Dickson. The function  promises to be most successful.  The fire department will commence practice shortly for the Spokane tournament. A final communication from Spokane with the  list of prizes and other information is awaited before the team  gets down to work.  J. Roderick Robertson and Grange  V. Holt arrived from the coast last  night.  John W.   Dow, of   Creston, returned home last night.  .  Maj'or   Houston   returned from  Victoria last evening.  Contractor Tierney has a steam  shovel at work on the bluff at the  foot of Railway street. . A section  of the hill is to be taken out to provide room for extra, tracks. All the  houses on the bluff have beeu  moved out.  Peter Larson, the well known  railroad contractor, was in the city  yesterday. He is returning to  Spokane after an inspection of mining interests in the Slocan.  The city roadvvork was not suspended yesterday owing to the  desirability of having Baker street  in shape as early as possible.  THE  NELSON TEAM  WON  Since then the Grand Porks men  have been anxious to play in Nelson with a view to re-establishing  the friendly feeling which had been  somewhat disjointed by the misunderstanding. A game was to  have been played yesterday, but  when the negotiations were under  way it was not understood that  Labor Day would be generally  observed as a holiday here, and as  the Boundary men had to leave  for home in the middle of the  afternoon, the local men did not  care to guarantee expenses for a  morning game. The clubs will  come together on Saturday, however, and a keenly contested game  may be anticipated. Nelson has defeated all the teams in this district  and Grand Forks is the fastest ag-,  gregation in their district, which  will add a zest to the match.  At the Rifle Eange.  The Nelson Rifle Association team  won the match with Rossland at  the rifle range by 44 points yesterday. The result is particularly  gratifying in view of the fact that  Rossland defeated Nelson a few  weeks ago. The home team made  unusually poor shooting on their  visit, and it was thought that on  the range with which they were  familiar the.outcome would be very  different. Yesterday's match demonstrated the accuracy of this prediction. "It is significant also that  the Rossland team scored fifteen  more points yesterday, than they  did at home. The Nelson team shot  splendidly, making 110 more points  than in the first match with Rossland, and won at every range.  The Rossland team had the distinction of scoring the only possible during the match. This was  put on by sergeant Harp at the 500-  yard range. Shooting was commenced at 9 a. m. and wound up at  7:30 o'clock. Lieutenant Beer officiated as range officer. The visitors  "were-eritettaitfed^on-the grouncls  and accorded the local men a  hearty vote of thanks for the  hospitality extended. The Rossland men left for home on the  afternoon train.  The match was fired at 200, 500  and 000 yards, seven shots each  with a sighter, possible individual  score 105. The scores were as  follows:  NKLSON.  200  Yds.  W. T.

On Saturday a  crack quartette of hunters, Dr.  Quinlan, Frank D. Moore of the  steamer Moyie, Charles Matthews  and R. Williams, tramped twenty  miles in the Goat River district  with a complete complement of  guns, ammunition and dogs. Tlieir  aggregate bag was one solitary  jacksnipe.  The cricket'club rounded out the  list of Nelson's successes in athletic  spoi'ts on Labor day by defeating  the Rossland eleven in a well-played  game. The match was replete  with interesting features, among  the most prominent of which was  the score made by F. W. Rolt, of  Rossland, who put on 73 runs in  the visitors' second inning, and  thereby placed to his credit the  highest score ever made in the  Kootenays. He batted out three  sixes, one of which went clear'  across Hall street, and nine fours.  Kennedy, of Rossland, also put on  48 runs in the second inning,making  one six and five fours. Both men  were finally bowled by Forbes, of  Nelson, who earned oh" the bowling honors. In the first inning he.  performed the hat trick by taking  three wickets with consecutive  balls. In addition. to this, Forbes  was effective throughout.  Rossland went to bat first and  started off with somewhat Of. a  burst.. After the first three men  were, dismissed,,-.. Nelson _had the  game well in hand and retired the  visitors for a total .of 55 runs.  The. home team went to the  wicket after luncheon, and struck a  winning pace from..the,, start. Pollock and Heathcpte carried their  bats for 28 runs each, while Forbes  ^nd Brigstocke made 31 each, thereby clinching the game. The side  was.retired at 3.15.^o'clock for 147  runs.leaving Nelson winner by a  wide margin.       . y  Rossland went in for a second  innings and proved much, more  formidable than in their first. The  Nelson bowlers were batted heavily  and the aggregate of runs was  large but as Nelson had hot time  for another innings, the match was  determined with scores of the first  innings.

Some of  the games were the best exhibitions of tennis seen in Nelson  this season and elicited warm applause from the large gathering of  club members in attendance. Tea  was served at the courts, and the  tournament proved to be a pleasant  social function.  In the. doubles, Severs and "Walker  of   Rossland   took  the  first  ESTABLISHED 1892  H.

The  doubles paired off again, Severs  and Walker defeating Dickson and  Haines, while Williamson and Pollok defeated Markell and Dewdney.  Honors were thus left even, each  club having two games to its credit.  In the singles, Williamson led off  by defeating Severs in the most  keenly contested game of the series.  At all points the result was in  doubt, but the Nelson man finally  won out by sheer merit of his play.  Walker of Rossland followed by  defeating Pollok in a hand settihe  players being well matched and in  fine form. The events were tied  again, but Dickson of Nelson solved  the problem by defeating Morkell  of Rossland somewhat easily in  straight sets.  No games in the club tournament  were played, but the series is to be  concluded in a couple of days.  Norman T. Macleod now holds  the medal for the highest authenticated, score ever made on the Nelson Rifle ranges. He put on 100  points out of a possible 105, at 200,  500 and GOO yards. The target  scores were 34 at 200, 32 at 500 and  34 at 000. The local shot who excels this record is good enough to  represent Canada at Bisley.  HOTEL   ARRIVALS.  PH_IR.���F. K. Archor, Kaslo: A.
