 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  y��  ***i_*f  EIGHTH YEAR.  NELSON:  SATURDAY MORNING SEPTEMBER 29  1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  NQ SETTLEMENT ARRIVED AT  But it is Daily Expected.  IIakri.tox, Pennsylvania, September 28.���Notwithstanding the  rumors of settlement, there was no  change in the great coal Htriko  situation here today. It was probably Lhe most inactive day that  president Mitchell and his official  staff have spent since tho strike  began.. The day gave promise of  developing important events at the  Uuited Mine Workers' headquarters, bnt all those interested were  doomed to disappointment. That  president Mitchell was waiting for  information from New York cannot  be denied! as he intimated several  times duriug Lhe day that something might develop before night.  In the afternoon he had two  lengthy conversations over the  long distance telephone, and between four and live o'clock this  afternoon he was at the wire for  more than half an hour. To whom  he talked he declined to say, but  he gave out the information that  he had nothing to impart.  Philadelphia, September 28.���  The coal strike remains unsettled.  Reports of conferences of mine  operators, and of leading officials of  the coal carrying railroads were  plentiful. Beyond the general  statement that the principal point  under disenssiou was" the advisability or practicability of granting  tho mine workers a ten per cent advance in wages, very little  concerning the meetings could  be gleaned. The operators  generally, expressed Lhe opinion  that the increase could not be  granted and the operating expenses  met unless there was an advance  in the price of coal. The larger operating companies, howevei, took  rather a hesitating view of the proposition to further increase the  price of anthracite coal, contending that the competition of bitu-.  . uiiiious-coal was now. too. sharp.  Presiden_;_Jitchell,.of the United  Mine Workers, is reticent, on the  general question of accepting a ten  per cent increase without other  concessions, and, declined to be  interviewed on that point. Quietude  prevailed today throughout tho  mine region.  BONDED THE SLOCAN BOY  Will Commence Work at Once.  T. Ci. Procter of (this city has  taken a bond on the Slocan Boy  property and adjoining claims for  the Manchester, England, syndicate,  which he has interested in.several  large deals in this district. The  Slocan Boy is a promising galena  proposition aiul will be worked  steadily during the winter. Six  men are now engaged in the clean -  ing-up process necessary before  activedevelopmenL-is-started^and"  the crew is to be increased as circumstances permit. Mr. Procter  has just returned from Creston  after starting a crew on the Alice  group which he bonded a few weeks  ago-    Work is proceeding steadily at  the May and Jenny property on  Forty-nine creek. The line of the  proposed wagon road on the creek,  passes immediately below the property and will materially convenience the owners in taking in supplies aud plant.  W. J". Boie, superintendent of the  Rene Laudi properties in Camp  .Mansfield, was in the city yesterday on business. Mr; Boie states  that the development on the group  is progressing satisfactorily. The  Joker veins have been encountered  on the Laudi property at various  points and recent assays from the  leads are unusually high in gold.  The sheriff has'seized the interest of J. Gormley in the Black  Prince, Dnndas "and Hoodoo claims  oil the summit of the divide between Lemon and Springer creeks.  The seizure was made to satisfy a  judgment in the action of Sloan vs.  Gormley for $336, and interest on  $322 at 0 per cent since June 7th,  1900. The claims will be1 offered  for sale by auction on October 30th.  Secretary Hay Will Resume Work,  Washington, September 28.���The  health of secretary of state Hay  has improved rapidly of late, and  ibis expected that he will return to  Washington early next week and  assume the duties of his office, re  lieving Dr. Hill, the acting secre-  taiy, who has been suffering from  a malarial attack. Assistant secretary Adee said today that secretary Hay had been in constant  communication with the department during the past inonth, and  personally shaped the Chinese negotiations iu that period.  MINING IN THE COURT NOW  Fighting Over Smuggler Ore.  Au interesting mining suit is now  passing through   the courts under  the style of Greenlee vs-Diekinson.  The lilaintiff is tho owner or  part  owner   of   the    Smuggler    group,  which   was    recently    bonded   to  Percy Dickinson, representing the  Warner Miller, Syndicate of New  York.      The bondholders made a  payment of $12,000 on the property,  ami spent $20,000 iudeveloping Lhe  claim*.     When   Lhe  bond   expired  an extension of time was requested  which   the   owners refused.     The  Warner    Miller    Syndicate     then  threw up the bond.   By the terms  of the  bond, the  owners  were  to  share   equally in  the  proceeds of  auy ore  shipped  while' the agreement   was  in  force, aud the suit  arose over this point.    A few days  before the bond expired the Warner  Miller people took a couple  of hundred sacks of ore from the property  and proceeded to ship it.    On the  day when  the bond  ran out the  shipment   was   en    route    to   the  smelter.    Plaintiff applied for and  secured   an  injunction  preventing  defendants   from shipping the ore  further, maintaining that defendants had no further interest iu the  ore.   The question for the court to  determine ia new and  will  be of  considerable   importance.     A motion has been made for a dissolution of   the   injunction,   and   the  matter will be argued  on  Monday.  Elliott & Lennie will appear for the  motion.  An innovation will be introduced  at- -the ��� forthcoming .assize court.  ..Members of-the grand^jhry^will-be  paid at the rate of $2 per day and  pettit jurymen at $2 also, insLead  of $'5 as formerly. The statute of  exemptions from jury service will  not come into force until an order-  in-couucil is passed' bringing the  whole Jury Act into force. Ifc is  interesting to note that the present  procedure is that brought into force  by the proclamation of sir James  Douglas, which was the -first Jury  Act passed in British Columbia.  Doc Elwell, who was confined in  the jail hero for a couple of months  awaiting trial, came before judge  Spinks this week aud was sentenced  Lo one year for house breaking, and  one month for escaping from custody. He was taken" to Kamloops  jail by constable Winter of Camp  McKinney.        The ��locket at the forthcoming  session of the assize court, which  opens on -Ocfcobei_l6th,_will_be-one-  of the heaviest in years. The civil  cases have not been filed, the  statute giving the litigants np to  the day of the opening court to  enter actions, but a large number  of suits are already under way and  are likely to come up. The criminal  docket already includes nine cases,  most of which will be lengthy.  The corrected list is as follows:  Regina vs Chenoweth, defendant  being but eight years of age and  charged with murdering a Chinaman at Rossland; Regina vs Albi,  defendant who is now at liberty on  $10,000 bail, is charged with attempted murder at Rossland ; Ro-  gina vs Kefctner aud Frederick,  conspiracy to defraud in a mining  deal; Regina vs Thompson and  Henderson, assaulting a peace oflieer in the discharge of his duty;  Regina vs Maslonka, defendant, a  lad under 10 years of age is charged  with theft from a. house in Nelson;  Regina vs Carlyle and Sutherland,  defendants are charged with breaking into a shop at Kaslo, the matter  arising out of the recent troubles in  the Lode Star Mining Company;  Regina vs Algiers, defendant is  charged with perjury at Rossland  in connection with the jumping of-  the Velvet claim at Rossland; Regina vs Albo, defendant charged  with being accesory to Albi in attempted murder.  Customs Broker Under Arrest.  Montreal, September 28.���Moses  Davis; custom house agent, has assigned, with liabilities of- about  $90,000, about $50,000 is due different" New York firms. Davis is  under arrest on three or four  charges.  FIRST DAY ATTHE RANCES  The Scores Were Low.  The first day's shooting in the  Nelson Rille Association's annual  matches went off satisfactorily and  saw close, though not high scoring,  the wind being tricky. The local  men won the cream off the prize  list, but it is quite on the cards  that the visiting marksmen, after  one day's experience on the ranges,  may come to the front today. Firing began at 9 a.m. and was continued until late in the afternoon,  the marksmen lunching on the  grounds.  The result in the nursery match  for members who had not previously won prizes to the amount .of $3  or over, was as follows', seven shots  kneeling at 200 yards, possible 3**  points:  .    Poinla.

The finish of fche C. P. R. match  was quite exciting. H, Bird and  F. R. Stewart tied for first place,  with 95 points, and it was necessary to shoot ovei' one range again  to determine who should take the  handsome silver trophy presented  by.the<.employees._of_jthe;C. P. R.  Iii the'shoot "off Bird scored IS'  points to Stewart's Hi. *  In the same match N. T. Macleod  did a bit of remarkably good shooting. His sighter and seven shots  in the C. P. R. match and three  next shots in the extra series found  the bull. Eleven successive bulls is  probably a record for the Nelson  range. Richardson also made a  possible at 500 yards.  The firing will be resumed - this  morning at 8:80 o'clock sharp. The  first match is the Tramway. Then  comes fche Corporation, which is regarded as the most desirable of the  entire programme." Tea will be  served on the ranges by the lady  friends of the association during  fche afternoon.  Training Ship Ashore.  Montuea__, September 28.���The  United States training ship Hawk,  which is on its way to Cleveland,  ran-ashorelasteveningaa-it���came-  oufc of the Lachine canal, nine miles  above here. There will be great  trouble getting her off. The accident occured, it appears, through  the absence of a pilot. The  commander of the Hawk engaged a' pilot before leaving Montreal.. After they had  reached the last lock in the Lachine  canal the pilot jumped out on the  lock and said he was going home, to  get his coat, as he lived nearby.  Thoy waited a long time for him,  but as lie did not return the commander decided to go ahead according to the chart. The boat ran  aground as soon as she got out of  the channel. A tug has tried to get  the Hawk off, but thus far unsuccessfully. The' pilot was nofc a  regular government one.  Three-Cornered Fight in Nanaimo. .  Victoria, September 28.���It  looks as if ~there will be a three-  cornered fight in the Nanaimo constituency. .The men who are behind Sloan, the independent Liberal candidate, are in a measure envious of Ralph Smith, and the prospect of a compromise is-.not.bright.  That Smith will run is"generally  understood. Though running as a  labor candidate he will have the  endorsement of the Laurier "admin-.-;  istration.   " '.' u  Accident on the N. & F. S.  John Sim, news agent pn.the Nelson & Port Sheppard railroad, was  run.over by the evening train at  Five-mile Point last night and received injuries which necessitated  the amputation of his- left leg between the knee and the hip. The  Spokane train tonkas a brief stop  at Five-mile point while khe locomotive runs around the V aud i.s  headed toward the city.* When  engine was uncoupled Sim stood ou  the narrow footplate afc the side of  the pilot. A slight jolt caused him  to slip to the truck and the engine  passed over his leg, mangling it  badly. The injured man was  brought to the city and taken to  the general hospital.. The amputation was performed hy doctors  LaBau and Doherty.  LARDEAU STURN NEXT YEAR  Shauglineflny Boosts For B. C.  "You may put me down among  those who boost hardest jfor British  Columbia" is the way-T.-O. Shaughnessy, president of-the C. I'. R., expressed his sentiments'toward -his  province.    "Prom my personal  ob-'  servation, and from the  reports of,  business which  come ->io  me  daily  from   every." division, in .British  Columbia,   I   am  thoroughly  convinced   that   the   province   has a  splendid future immediately before  it.    On this trip T was particularly  '.struck with  the  improvements to  be seen on every hand, and  especially in Nelson, whielj'has progiessed  rapidly since I visited'the eity ln'st,-  abouta.year.ago7" The.'. C."P. R. is  keeping up with the'times, too, and  ohr yard imf.roveinVifts.and station  buildings will soon',, he' well  under  way.    In regard to'ihe Lardo road,  which  you   tell   me,, interests  the  people of Nelson, f'ican-only state  that next spring willC probably see  some action.taken,;there.   Last year  we spent $200,000 iii grading a section of the road; and.it-was our intention to complete' the" work  this  summer, but the^failure Nof Manitoba crops and other matters arising  in the interim compelled us to draw  in our horns.    Another reason was  that the Lardo district was nofc developed as we had anticipated and  the company desired  to see  more  business   r'n "sight   before   parting   _ with      t'ievC vei'y^      large  sum "of money "ne'eeisary'to'- finish*  the road.   I hope," however, that we  will be able to do something for tho  Lardo people next year.   The Balfour extension is not ballasted yet,  and is therefore  rough, but  when  the  road   is complete it will be a  splendid section.    No further work  of importance  is contemplated  in  this   district, .in   fact  1   don't  seo  what else the Nelson  people  could  ask for." <=  Mr. Shaughnessy arrived in Lhe  city yesterday afternoon. Tn his  party were: R. -B. Angus, S_. B.  Osier and W. JL Matthews, directors of the C. P. K.; AVilliam  Whyte, manager of lines west of  Fort William; W. R. Baker, executive agent at Winnipeg; >1\ A.  Peterson, chief engineer of the system: and J. R. Nelson, private .secretary. They left the steamer at  Procter and were met there by Jt.  Marpole, goneral superintendent;  TSi^taiiTJrSVrTroTrpTdistricfc super-  intendent; 0. McL. Brown, executive agent afc Vancouver; If. J.  Cambie, district resident engineer;  A. F. Proctor, engineer on tiie Balfour extension; John G. Sullivan,  district construction eugineer, aud  other officials. Mr. Mar pole's private car was coupled to the construction locomotive and the parfcy  brought to Nelsou. They registered at the Hotel .Phair and spent  the afternoon in going over the  work under way at the yards, F. P.  Gutelius, local resident engineer,  doing the honors. 'The president  expressed himself as very much  pleased with the plan of work  adopted.  The president's party- will leave  this morning for-Rossland.-'They  are to lunch at noon with .George  T. Blaekstock at Llie War Eagle  mine.        -        -  -  ; .   Another Revolution Started.  New Yobk, September 28.���A  Herald dispatch from Cape Haitien  says: Reports have ,been received  from Monte Cristi, Santo Domingo,  of a. movement to overthrow the  government of president Jimines.  The insurrection has begun at Moca,  and is led by Horacio Vasquez, vice-  president of the republic, and governor Caceras of. the province of  Santiago. ���  He Went.After a Burglar.  Atlanta, Georgia, September 28.  ���Charles A. Collier, former mayor  of this city, and United States commissioner to. the Paris exposition,  died today from the pistol shot re-  b.ived yesterday. It is generally  believed he shot himself while  chasing a burglar.  WASHINGTON IN THE DARK  Has No News From China.  Washington, September 28.���  Tho state department has not been  advised officially of any of the  events of more or less importance  which are said to have occurred in  China within the past twenty-four  hours. If Tuan has been degraded,  aud if Russia contemplates a blockade of the Chinese naval * ports, the  department does not kuow the facts.  It has let it be known to the Chi-,  nese government, thafc Tuan's promotion would be unwelcome to the  United, States government, but  it has not yet , been informed  of the results of that rep- L  resentation. Respecting        the  statement that Ching lias been discovered to be a contributor to the  Boxer cause, it is said that all the  information that the department  has been able to secure, touching  Ching's personality, went to show  his unvarying friendliness for the  foreigners, and upon that record he  has beeu accepted as a competent  envoy.  'The officials declined to say  whether or not the instructions to  minister Conger have gone forward  \yet, but it is intimated that Lhe  minister is fully advised by this  time as to the state.department's  policj'. It is said, however, and the  statement may be significant, that  no developments in 'the" Chinese  situation of importance are expected within the next two weeks  at least.     * .       '   "      '  'The situation in China is now  more serious than ever before for  those interested in preserving the  integrity of the empire. The Chinese government is in the power of  Boxer leaders, who are not likely to  submit io the empress dowager a  proposition- unfavorable, to them.  The friendly viceroys of the south  are' still loyal to the throne, and  any foreign'aggression iu southern  China will -precipitate"-an armed  .uprising.: . Already the.goverhor.of  Ngwang-Hai province had addressed  a memorial fco the enfpress.dowager,  declaring thafc his signature Lo the  viceroy's agreement with the consuls in Shang-Hai was forged.  A Shang-Hai special says: Russia  is holding all tho forts and' strategical points from Taku to Pekin.  Russia's possession of the railroad  shows by the permanent arrangement which her officers are making  that she intends to swallow the  north of China. No one here believes that Russia will ever move  oiit except under overwhelming  pressure from other powers.  Russian Emigrants For Ganada.  Montr rat,, September 28.���Three  Molkan delegates from southern  Russia have arrived here from  Ottawa, accompanied by the superintendent of immigration. The visit  is to make arrangements wiLh Lhe  Canadian���Pacific-railway���for-the  transportation next win Ler for 7000  of their compatriots, who intend to  leave the czar's dominions in  southern Russia to settle in the  Canadian northwest. As soon  as satisfactory arrangements  have been complete*. the  immigrants will begin to arrive.  The Moikans are spoken of as a  highly desirable class of settlers,  industrious and frugal, with a  knowledge of fa.rming and rudimentary handicrafts. They hold peculiar .religious tenets. They are  Christian-, and their views arc obnoxious to the ruling authorities in  Russia. Their ideas of social and  family life are similar to that much  persecuted section of Russian Jews.  They do uot object to military service, but havo long suffered undor  Russian oppression, and are looking  forward to a period when they can  establish themselves under free institutions.  .    Enterprising Merchants in Jail.  Montreal, September 28.���Alex  McCullogh; vice president- of the  Crbll & McCullogh Dairy Company,  and D. J. McGillis. secretary of. the  Montreal Cold Storage^ Freezing  Company, were arrested this evening on a charge of conspiring to  defraud the Merchants Bank of  Halifax out of the sum of $220,000,  by means of warehouse receipts for  goods alleged to be stored in the  storage company's premises, and  which were not there.  Japanese Ministry Resigns,  London,    September    29.���"The  Yaingata ministry   has  resigned,"  cables the Yokohama correspondent  of the Daily Mail, "aud the marquis  Ito will probably succeed to the  premiership. Such a change would  not affect Japan's policy iu China.  The marquis Ito favors hearty cooperation with Great Britain, and  strongly opposes the partition of  China or Russian ascendancy  there."       -  SENTIMENT VEERING ROUND  UnioniHts Not Overconfident.  London, September 28.���-The parliamentary general election campaign presents no remarkable feature. Arthur J. Balfour, first lord  of the treasury, seems to recognize  that the khaki issue alone is not,  strong enough, and has written tt!  second manifesto in the' shape of a  1 letter criticizing lord Rosebery's  manifesto so far as the latter deals  with domestic questions. Speaking  last evening at Manchester, Mr.  Balfour, replying to a question on  the subject of international currency, said he had 'always been  in favor of a stable par of exchange,  which would benefit the trade and  commerce of Great Britain and of  other countries. Mr. Chamberlain,  the colonial secretary, has' written  a letter in the course of which lie  says that as the" Dutch republics  have beeu annexed, he does hot expect any formal declaration of  peace. He asserts that he does, not  know whether the" queen intends'  to 'fix a day of national thanksgiving. ,    _ ,  Speaking yesterday at B ils ton,  Mr. Chamberlain warned the'.electors against over confidence! Sir  Michael Hicks Beach,-chancellor of  the exchequer, speaking last evening at Bristol, said the country had  quite enough on its hands at pre"  sent, and to attempt to establish  an English administration of a portion of China would be an - act of  madness.' '_  Mr." L. Courtney, speaking at Bat-  tersea, in favor of the candidacy of  John Burns, admitted that^the'gov-  'erj_n^t^w^li^l&^g^^J}l��  majority '_.'..' y V - l" ���  Mrs. George Cornwallis/; West  (lady Randolph Churchill)'is assisting her sou, Winston Leonard  Churchill, in his canvas. Disorder-  ly scenes liave attended some of his  meetings.  The Daily News says: "Fi very-  body knows thafc captain Hedworth  Lambton, who, wifch his sailors,  marines aud naval guns, did so  much to save Ladysmith, sees no  reason for approving tho way in  which the government prepared for  and conducted the war in South  Africa. On the contrary, he finds'  solid ground for condemning them,  and as Liberal candidate for New-  cnstle-on-Tyne is trying to put his  disapproval in a practical form.  Few men can speak on the  subject " with such authority  as he, a fact of which the  Tories are painfully conscious. To  make"matters"worse"for~the"gentle^"  men who hope thafc khaki will give  them another lease of power there  are other Liberal candidates who  are or have been afc the front. The  most widely known after captain  Lambton is T. A. Sheffy, who has  returned from South Africa and is  nctively wooing the electors of the  Christ church division of Hampshire.  His services in connection with the  Imperial Yeomanry ai'e, politically  speaking, a most inconvenient thorn  in the side of the government."  A curious feature, comparing the  present election with those bitter  campaigns of 1892 and 180"., is the  absence of home rule from the  hustings. Except in Ireland, it is a  dead issue, or at least a thoroughly  suspended one. The rights and  wrongs of ritualists aro now much  more frequently discussed than the  once famous cry wliich s'Cnt' Gladstone into retirement and put Mr.  Chamberlain' pi) the government  benches.         ���'" ��� ''  Sealing Again a Failure.  1 Victoria, September 28.���H.M.S.

The tonnage of ore from mines directly tributary to his company's  lines   in   Kootenay and  Southern  Yale is increasing every day, and  it is not at all visionary to predict  that next year ifc will  be double  what   ifc   will   be-this year.   The  handling of five thousand tons of  raw, ore   a   day   from    mines _to  .'smelters;'short haul as it will  be,  means a -million dollars.a year in  freight charges, aud another, million  a year for the haulage of goods and  supplies, to the mines, smelters, and  the people who .work in or around  them.   Is it any wonder, then, that  far-seeing railway   men,   like Mr.  Shaughnessy, are* 'boosting" British..  Columbia.  , ThrMiner says the work of mak- |  ing Baker .street a credit to the  city "must stop-at Stanley.'.' Wo  are not aware that that ex-subsidized sheet was charged with either  financing the city or directing .the  the expenditure of the city's revenue. - We are afraid if ifc had that,  privilege ifc would have less difficulty than ifc has of financing its  own business.  Willi a ai Wh v te, yy h o has charge  of all   the  lines  of   the Canadian,  Pacific railway west ..of Lake; Superior, lias never been charged -with.,  being either a real- estate or town-:  site boomer; instead, he has always,  been   credited   with being a man  whose solo aim  was to make .the  lines under his direction the.equal,  if not the best, of any of the company's system. . And  he has sue-,  ceeded.   His opinion, of   n   town,  therefore is worth, having,.as it is  disinterested.     Yesterday he said  that no town in the country with  which he is familiar has shown a  steadier growth than Nelson, and  he was satisfied that no town looked  more permanent. The work in progress on. 13aker street, he maintained, was of the kind that gave  strangers.a favorable impression.   ���  A. Macniimor, inspector of the  Bank oC Montreal, was in Nelson  yesterday and leffc for Itossland this  .morning, J le says that, while the  business throughout Canada is  good, ye.fc money i.s nofc being loaned  freely. One of tho reasons for this  is the uncertainty of the result of  the general elections in Canada and  the presidential election in the  United States. Once these elections  are over business will be on a better  basis and money will bu easier. Mr.  Macnider was here two year.-, ago,  nnd was agreeably surprised at the  advancement that Nelson has made.

Pomona and  NELSON'S SCHOOL  ATTENDANCE,  The number of pupils enrolled' at  the various Nelson schools for the  present term is Gf.0. The pupils  are divided.among.the schools as  follows: Central 31,"J, St. Joseph's  14S, Hume addition, 57, and Kindergarten 30. The schools are well  into the fall woi'k, and within a  few weeks active preparation for  the autumn examination will be  under way.  At the Central fche attendance is  smaller than at this time last year,  due directly to the opening of the  Hume aud St. Joseph's schools during the winter.  The average attendance afc St.  Joseph's is over 125, and tho present  quarters are insufficient to handle  the classes as the sisters would, prefer. The new building is well under  way.and will be ready' for occupation after the mid-winter vacation.  The building now in use will then  be utilized for a gymnasium.

There - was seemingly nothing  more to be said, but the queen sent  a curt;com!nau<l thatjior majesty,  was to .have, tiniely notice of the  date appointed for the funeral, so  that it should not clash with any  state function...  Tho duchess had ono more card  to play. The following Friday had  been-fixed-for the state drawing  room- at Buckingham palace.

When the news reached Buckingham palace: the royalties were already iu the throne .room, and the  elite^of London, society, assembling  in the ante-chambers.- It was- too  late to postpone .the.drawing-room.  A hasty order was .given, bidding  the Guards' band to cease playing  in the quadrangle, and a telegram  despatched- to- princess Louise directing her to await the arrival of  her father-in-law's remains at  Kilmun.

TRED   LYNCH   IN   TOWN,  Fred Lynch, formerly of Nelson,  but now of New Westminster, is in  the city renewing old friendships on  his way home from the .east, where  he played 'witli. the Westminster  lacrosse team on their record-  breaking trip.' "Lynch was badly  used up in the game at Ottawa, but  the marks of the encounter have  now almost disappeared. He looks  hale and hearty, and played the  whole eastern series through again  last night. Sie played on the home  line and was counted one df the  most reliable men on the crack  western twelve. "' Fred states that  he was confident of victory tin all  the games save that with the Capitals which proved to be one of the  most difficult of the series. The  Westminsters went in to win, however, and put" up a game which  played the star easterners to a  standstill.  While in Winnipeg Lynch saw  the lacrosse nien' there who are to  play at Westminster next week.  They have not .decided on their  movements after leaving the Coast.  The Winnipegers "were invited to  play at Vancouver, but the Westminster Fair Association, which ..is  financing the trip, vetoed the proposition on the ground that a game  at Vancouver would detract from  the drawing power of the home  mateli. The Manitoba men* may  want to take" in Nelson on their  way east, but the local club will be  placed at a great disadvantage if  they are hot informed at an early  date of the Manitoba men's  plans.
