 -p*  OV  THE LAW AND THE LAW COURTS  Powder Companies Indicted.  Tlie members of the grand  jury completed their labors  yesterday  afternoon  and   were   discharged.     W.  A.  Jowett,  foreman of the jury, in  presenting the  usual presentment, referred to tlie damage which menaced the people of  Nelson  liy the proximity of the magazines of the  Hamilton   Powder    Company   and   the  Grant Powder Company.    In one of the  magazines ho said tliere were some thirty-  two cases of old powder, wliich had been  there some two or three years.    This old  powder was in such a state that it might  go off at any time.    The grand jurors, he  added, had tlie evidence of   NY Hoover to  the effect   that  the  danger  of    explosion was so great, that while the  blasting  for the Hall Mines  smelter  was  iu  progress lie felt constrained to leave the vicinity of the powder magazine  altogether,  lest the shock of the blasting should   explode the powder. o  Justice Drake replied that the deputy-  attorney-general   would  no  doubt  take  the  necessary  steps to   carry   out   the  i Avishes of the  grand  jurors, but it was  not to be expected that  the  present  assize would sit for an indefinite time.  Mr. Jo'wett then emphasized the damage, as it impressed itself upon the jurors,  by adding that in addition to the old and  dangerous powder there were about  thirty-two tons of new powder.  Justice Drake���I hope it will not go oif  befor I leave. I begin to understand the  gravity of the situation.  Deputy attorney-general McLean���Seeing that we all have a personal interest  in this matter I will ask your lordship  for the notices under the code, which  will give the companies two days after  service in which to appear and plead.  Registrar Simpkins then read the following presentment: May it please your  lordship���we, the grand jurors of the  district of West Kootenay, respectfully  request the following-���We regret the increase in crime in the. district, as shown  by the number of cases brought before  us; this is doubtless owing, in a great  measure, to the large increase in poi_u-  lation, partly of a floating 'character,  owing to the railway construction going  on during the last two years. We note,  however, with satisfaction that there are  no criminal cases from the city of Nelson.  Former grand juries,-from-the year  1892, have niade presentments asking for  the removal of the powder magazine  from  its -.present  location  opiiosite  the  j We,-this.  TUESDAY MORNING, JUNE G,   1899  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $5 A YEAR;  WEEKLY, $2.  presentment, apologized for the circumstance that he could use but ordinary  language���that the matters referred to  would be called to the attention of the  proper authorities, because upon former  occasions���such attention had virtually  been nil. With respect to the necessary  repairs to the court house he had previously urged the same upon the authorities. With regard to tho payment of  grand jurors it.was a subject upon which  every district in the province had hitherto made representations of a si mi lar character. It was not for him' to suggest,  but he -thought that the only way in  which the object could be attained would  be by making it a plank in their platform  for the next political election. Otherwise he said he did not see how the object could be attained. He thanked the  jurors for their services and discharged  them.  Heneager Case Disposed of.  The jury in the Rossland case of Regina vs. Heneager, Avere out about an  hour and a half when they returned with  a verdict of guilty of attempt to commit  incest. The jury was composed of Gilbert  Stanley (foreman), E. H. Applewhaite,  J. R. Graham, Thomas Morley, Thomas  Lillie, C. W. West, J. L. Stamford, E. P.  Whalley, J. H. Wallace, Martin O'Reilly,  C, D. J. Christie and C. J. Wilson. The  court reserved sentence upon the prisoner  until the conclusion of the criminal business of the assize.  THE TOWN AND THE DISTRICT  Along the Water Front.  The river has risen 8J inches during  the 48 hours ending at 0 p. m. yesterday.  The total rise for the past seven days has  been 2 feet 1 inches, and a total of 11 feet  7 inches from the lowest point last  winter.  The s.s. Marion was at the wharf Sunday afternoon. She had a new capstan  fitted on, and left at 5 p.m. for Kaslo  with several passengers.  Captain Troup had a party out in his  steam launch during the afternoon, but  the day was too cold and windy for  boating.  The Kokanee did not make her appearance yesterday as expected.'

Mr. and Mrs. Alan-Forrester paid Ymir  a visit,yesterday and were the guests, of  constable Forrester.  The I. O. F. Court -Ymir No. 3088 are  going to give a grand ball on June 30th,  to celebrate Dominion Day.  The president of the waterworks company states that the water will be laid  into the town .wi thin the next fortnight.  ROSSLAND.  So far-no preparations are being made  to celebrate the 1st of July in Rossland.  Some people think Rossland should have  a celebration, but others wish to take the  opportunity of visiting Nelson.  The Rossland Cricket Club held its  first practice Saturday. Tliere was a.big  turnout, and a very creditable eleven can  be picked out to do battle with Nelsou on  Dominion Day.  SILVERTON.  The football club has receiA'ed two defeats in the last two days. On-Saturday.,  in New Denver, their colors were lowered  to a tune of three goals to nil. A tin  band greeted them on their return yesterday. The steamer Slocan made a  special trip from Slocan City, bringing up  the football club and a crowd of rooters.  5J&���*$U"_U^^^^  j-^^lfSa^uMfe  __tiirxx Biinivtchsand _the jlocal .rteam ..goes? to���:  fp..\v.^I��)fin-rvr_��te-o-ii.,.:l.'ii,ii_i..,r.l:'f,lii.   _.__���_._    ���_���_,"���__" ��?>'*.  ���^it^-liinl'l&a'feiOiic^:  _We askis^iir^lo/dship^"       represent to  iV... fSi-nni .1 ������ = iii it,li tin nffift Till ft*  f _liTil rel v*  in -  jthtej.-pr.d-.per^..

We Avisli to draAv the attention of the  authorities to the fact that grand jurors  are in receipt of no remuneration for  their labors. We believe that grand  jurors in all other provinces in the Dominion are paid for their services, and  Ave ask that adequate remuneration be  allowed for services of grand jurors in  the future.  We draAv attention to the insufficient  school accommodation at Nelson, and  recommend that a Avard school, of at  least three rooms, be erected near the  eastern boundary of the city.  In conclusion, we Avish to thank your  lordship for the great consideration you  haA'e shown us Avhile Ave have been fulfilling our duties as grand jurors, and Ave  also desire to thank the deputy attorney-  general for his care and assistance in  presenting in a fair and clear manner the  several cases brought before us.

Certain it is that the actions "of the _ pen  since the  inception of tlie strike have  been su-li as to Avin for theni  respect  from those Avho Avere oiify too prone to  be censorious.   Not a single public  expression Of hatred, not a single threat,  and no action of any sort or nature has  been made agaiiist the owners* iior ha\yb  there been any mills blown up or li^es  lost.    ?��Ioi'eOA>er, there hits been  no demand made   upon   the   authorities   for  extra   police    protection.     In    fact,   a  stranger might pass through the camp  and  never suspect the situation existing.  Acting, ''evidently' from    headquarters,  those men avIio are remaining iti the various  towns,  are  holding aloof from the  hotels,   and   are   ������batching"    in    small  parties in all tlie available cabins.    This  remoA-es from the hotels all apprehension  of having  to  hold  up  the men.    Very,  very little drinking is being done, and.  the men are conducting  themselves in a  highly creditable   manner.     They   feel  confident of winning, and the general  public is with them.    On the other hand  the mine OAA'iiers are acting in ail equally  decent manner, and so far as the outAvard  appearances of the situation   are   concerned, not a Avord of censure can be applied anyAVhere;  Child Drowned at Trail.  A three-year-old son of J. BleAvett,  engineer on the Columbia & Western  raihvay at Trail, Avas droAvned in Trail  creek on Saturday last. Mrs.. Rlewett  went doAvn toAvn in the afternoon, leaving the child in the house in charge of  his father. The boy went out, and  shortly after Avas missed by Mr. Blewett,  Avho started a search and found the body  stuck fast in the brush about tAvo hundred yards down the creek.    .  ���'Jl3iS&  ..-, via;.J.lie^  ^Ciiipnl&'i  " refei'ted" "6n>  n   Y*V        "   J>���1    Y     0   0  ,NE5^E^ER.frf.:'������;  "Yyi_\_.AY_jv^ _________  "jv*!ee&. ^-fej**^ Cblk"'"  .iuenc'fe ^illu^-j-Bpth.

A trail has boen completed from  the mine to the Athabasca Avagon road  and shipments of ore to the Hall Mines  smelter will be made in the course of a  couple of weeks.

Dabney has been out on a visit of  inspection to the Tamarac, Avhere they  are drifting on the 200-foot level. There  are fourteen men employed, avIio are  Avorking the eight-hour shift and receiA'-  hig the standard Avage of $3.50.  YJ. D.

J. and EVIL Wiuslow lnwe just returned from Hidden creek, Avhere they  located the Winslow claim adjoining  their other .claim, the Iroquois. They report that on the WinsloAV in the bed of  the stream they made one of the greatest  discoA'eries, perhaps, in this camp���a  ledge of nice quartz, carrying zinc, from  30 to 50 feet in Avidth. The property is  just three-miles from the railroad. The  samples indicate free milling ore, and a  surface assay retvirned good values in  gold, copper and silver.

There i.s a feeling of uneasiness here  over the developments on the eight-hour  question in the Slocan. There is very  little fear of the trouble spreading to  Rossland, but outside investors are  already being influenced by the appearance of labor disputes in the Kootenays.  So far it has had little or no effect on  prices, but there is now no market at all  for some Slocan and Ymir stocks Avhieh  were very popular a month or so ago.  English papers bring news of the successful flotation of the Standard Exploration Company. Eight Australian properties are put in at ��800,000 in paid up  shares, ��500,000 has been-raised- in cash,  and tlio balance is held in reserve. Tlie  capital is ��15,000. The idea of the eight  Australian properties was-'no.t kindly received in Loudon aiid Whitakek Wright  secured an option on a big placer scheme  in Alaska knoAvn as Powder Basin.  Whether this Avill be taken up or not is  doubtful. The cash will probably be invested in, Kootenay and Yale by GoA'er-  nPr Macintosh. The shares of the Standard Exploration are already at a premium.  SLOCAN   LAKE   DISTRICT.  On Saturday morning W. C. E. Koch  sent a gang of men to Ten Mile to ship  the Enterprise ore lying in the chute at  the Avharf. They AA'ill. also clean up the  dumps at the miue and ship the ore from  there as Avell. There Avill be about 1,000  tons in all, AA'hich should net the neAV  company $50,000 at least.       ,  Ten Mile is looking up hqav, and several  properties are being Avorked.  It is expected a .deal Avill be consu-  mated on the NeepaAva, Ten Mile, in a few  days.  Teh men are at Avork on the Mountain  Chief cleaning up the workings and stopes  and exploiting the'��� vein.

Waterman appeared before  the city council last evening to enlist the  council's help in the approaching celebration on Dominion Day.    He said he came  before them representing the celebration  committee.      He  had  already   collected  $3,350, and by tomorroAV eA'euing Avould  have  $3500.    The  celebration  Avill  probably, take place 011 Friday, Saturday and  Monday,'June 30th and July 1st and 3rd,  respectively.      He  said  the   celebration  committee would be content if the council  put  the  streets   in  shape  and  kept  them so, and also had them patrolled and  kept clear during the races.    He also expressed the hope that the  council Avould  put the recreation ground in shape.

Vertise the celebration  everywhere, and  the council -would, be expected to officially  invite the mayors and councils of British  Columbia    and    Spokane   and    Seattle.  This, it was thought, Avould be  the best  advertisement  the city could get.    The  board of trade, will also  be  requested to  invite the chamber of commerce of Spokane. .  Alderman Thomson said it AA'ould be  foolish to spend money"011 the recreation  ground, as tlie. city had no title to it.

The nearest  justice of the pence to the city is Charles Hay of Columbia.   .James Kerr, than whom there\was li-.t a more conscientious nor more intelligent ju-lieo in the country, is  not included in the re-appointmeiils.   The onij- possible  reason for this is that _Ir. Kerr did ycuinn.ii service in  securing tho election of a supporter of the present government.-. The triuh is (hat Ihe present government is  composed of about as poor a lot of politicians as can be  found anywhere.   All the detail, that go to keep u parly  Strong aro neglected and everything U centralized in the  Hon. Joseph Martin.   Members Mho krow ihe want., and  requirement- of their respuetiveoi--triots are not consull-  . ed and every act of the government  creates dissati.fac.  tion.   The duties of Ihe members are limited to acting as  voting liiaehines in the house and apologisl.s for political  blunders in their constituencies.   If the government is  .to escape disaster it must be disciplined by itssupporters.  Its members must be taught Io recognize that they are  ������ the. leader., of a party only when they carry out the  wishes of the parly.   Under present conditions the rank  and file have nothing to do . uiitf tempt to justify actions  that. I hey know fire politically jTuoli-,h and ill-timed.  The' above is from tho Greenwood  Times, and the criticism is just. In tlie  Nelson riding, men have been appointed  to office, not for tlieir fitness os-for party  the force.    The committee, consists of -alderman -Beer, Kirkpatrick and  Thomson.  The .five bylaw's recently passed at the  polls were formerly reconsidered and  adopted, and the bylaw authorizing the  consolidation of the ��� "bylaws received its  second reading.  The city engineer recommended the  purchase of the necessary sewer .and  water pipes for the proposed extension of  the systems, and tenders therefor will be  called at once.  Alderman Beer was much exercised  over the saloons being open all night.  This, he said, was not the case in any respectable city.       .  Alderman Fletcher wanted to know if  the saloons really were open all niglit,  and alderman Thomson replied that he  did not think they Avere.  Alderman Beer, however, had found  such to be the case, and thought the  attention of the license commissioners  should be drawn to it.  Ir was suggested by aldermen Thomson and Fletcher that alderman McKillop  should be appointed a committee of one  to;investigate, but the alderman did not  respond and the matter dropped,  ������������^ljdeyp?^  Tto\|__tegul^  ,-.v'^ -...S i*��������'i.��f:.-0-��_*��_j.��3-. ���>v,.��?i;._ flly. �� ���_..'.:.�����;���  'Wjj;^Kifr_^:Q'r*^pvEi^isi|!f&-j-D  This reason", ajj"is. nojYnje-.ssaif--, oy.e^yljbdy.  �� ' Y"���i_   .

The sewerage _.--  tdil.-ioii scheme jiiclttded a pipe tip the  lane ij;i.(]itestjbn, and it would cause -ul-  ditiqnitj expense to have the work done  separately now. Tho motion was eventually withdrawn.  A letter was read from W. C. ftJoL.au  offering five scrapers to the city for $100.  The matter was referred to the mayor  and alderman Fletcher to investigate,  "with, power to act.  Tlie mayor and city clerk were authorized to make a note for $20,000, to cover  the overdraft of the city's account at the  Bank of .Montreal.  The .question of the shortage in, ex-city  clerk Seeley's accounts came up, and also  the question of reimbursing the former  mayor for the amount he had advanced  to cover that shortage. Action was deferred until the exact amount due had  been ascertained.  Alderman Beer wished to reduce the  lire brigade to fourteen members, and to  appoint a man tit a salary of $000 a year  who would be permanently' stationed, at  the fire hall.- He thought this -would increase the ct'licietu-y of tlie department  which was, in liis opinion, unnecessarily  numerous.

Salt Lake Tribune.  A correspondent asks from Avliat na-  tioimlity admiral Schley descended. We  tlo not know, but think tlie name was  originally German. He also asks'which  ranks highest as a naval commander,  Dewey; Farragut, Paul .Tones or lord  Nelson.  Paul Jones was simply a lighter; as to  the relative merits of the others as great  commanders, who but a thoroughly educated sailor can answer: As we estimate  them, lord Nolson and FaiT-igiifc were  Napoleons of the sea. Both.had a belief  that the best sailors and best fighters  would win, and their idea was to outsail  aud outfight any enemy that appeared;*  But tlieir-opportunities'were very different. Nelson had to depend entirely tipon  the winds for a motive power, and the  most effective gun of his day was a  trifling thing compared with modern  ordnance. Farragut made his fame iu a  steainer aud with unproved, guns. Of  both it may be said that they, dared  everything and feared nothing. Nelson,  in liis great fight at Aboukir bay, won  lirst by driving a part of his squadron  over shoals that the French did not believe any commander avou Id attempt; and  then, by superhuman fighting, Avhicli  lasted from sunset to dawn. The crucial  test of Farragut Avas iu entering Mobile  * bay. Tliere were torpedoes in the channel, batteries onshore and lire rafts in  his path. The order, of,attack was for  the ironclads' to advance firstV'to be foi-'  lowed  by  the~ wooden* ships.-   Farragut  -himself  was lashed -in the  crosstroos,ofthe Avoodeji  "Hartford,"  to Avhicli place  1 ho, had ascended that he might Avatch  the'-progress of the battle from above the  dense canopy of smoke.    Suddenly, the  * foremost ironclad, the "Tecumseh," was  blown up by a torpedo, and sunk in three  "minutes; Avhereupon the commander of  the second ship in the line halted and  commenced  backing,- at  the  same  time  -signaling: "AVe have lost our best ironclad. What shall I do?" At the time the  fleet was directly opposite Fort Morgan,  which avus working all its batteries upon  the ships. Farragut did not-hesitate an  instant, but ordering the signal "go  ahead," he pulled his own ship out of the  line, and crowding her forward, took his  place at tho head ofthe column, and thus  led the squadron into the bay. Nelson  never did anything finer, nothing liner  was ever done.  As" to Dewey, what liis rightful place is  jcanuot quite be estimated" :ygt. lit. his  jXvayji e.___.se_^  The modern Ayargliip is a jbimdle. Of lila-  chines aild* explosives1, and fihe modern  t'linnoii is something so terrible that it  would be possible for a single shot to  sink an ironclad. The problem is vastly  more complex in many Ways than those  that Nelson had to solViB' But the man  shines out just the same. The theory  wliich Dewey acted upon, and which was  acted upon tit Santiago, seemed to be to  so. overwhelm, the enemy with a rain of  death as to prevent his doing elfectit'e  Av'oi'k in retui'ii. In both battles thb lire  Of tho American ships wftS so terrible  that from the first the enemy fired wild  knd in a few minutes; the officers could  no .'longer hold tlieir men up to their guns,  while' on the American ships the excitement and the danger only seemed to  bring out in absolute perfection the qualities of the officers and men. Over all at  Manila the commander watched and, it is  said, gave no orders save once AA'hen one  of tlie ships seemed falling out of line, he  signalled for it to close in. His fight Avas,  as it were, merely a demonstration on  the blackboard of a problem that he had  worked out before he retired the night  before. Surely neither Farragut nor Nelson ever did anything grander.. It may  be said that Dewey but imitated Farragut. Well, it may be also said that  Farfagut imitated Nelson, but Avhen it  comes to that, Nelson imitated Drake,  and Drake imitated the great fighters  like Doria and Agrippa, before him. It  ���uly means that each one i'had the nerve  md genius iu tlie face of death to do the  very best thing, and ordinary men cannot estimate the meed of glory due to  2ach.  Is r|ow prepared -to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Slcaguay, U. S., Atlin., B. C, ar.d  Dawson City, Yu^or* District.  The following is the conclusion of a  lengthy article in the London "Morning":  "Tliere is one mischief the Sunday journal will help to mend. It Avill help to  kill that hide-bound giant of Sabbatarianism which has always been the worst  foe of its own best hopes. The Sunday  is the one time in all the Aveek during  which thousands upon thousands can find  time free for thinking, for reading,-"for  breathing fresh air, for looking at the  masterpieces of great artists, for hearing'  beautiful music. Give us freedom, gentlemen of the pulpit. AVe shall conie to  hear you none the more readily Avhilst  you strive to keep us deaf to the vast  and changeful interests of life, and blind  to its beauties. And in the meantime  banish your obreakfast roll and morning  paper from Monday's, table, for they are  each purveyed by a Sabbath-breaking  crowd."  Martin's Public Spirit.  Toronto News.  The career of Hon. Joseph Martin affords a striking illustration of the value  that is set upon public spirit by the people generally. That is all-the Hon. Mr.  Martin has to commend him to the fa/vor-  able consideration of the electorate. He  does not possess in an eminent degree the  social qualities that.endear' men to the  people, nor does lie ahvays display good  judgment in his political actions. It is  probably the case- that Mr. Martin has  antagonized unnecessarily more "men  than any other politician in Canada. He  does not appear to be able to discriminate  parso^ Produce Qo.  ISBUSOIN, E-. C  betAveen matters of importance and  trivial 'concerns, and thus brings himself  into collision Avith his colleagues Avhere  there is no question of principle involved;  and when the gratification of his own  wishes do 'not advance his oavu or his  party's interests. He is of a domineering  disposition, not the type of man to attract people by personal beauty of character, and yet, handicapped in this Avay,  he is probably as popular a man with the  electorate of the Dominion as tliere i.s in  politics today. It is doubtful if even sir  Wilfrid Laurier Avould get more A*otes  than Joseph Martin, if the Dominion (ex-  clusive of Quebec), could be {soiled on the  question of tlieir respective merits. This  is due entirely to the fact that during all  Mr. Martin's political career he has shown  himself ready to fight for the people's interest, regardless ofthe influence of corporations or personal advantage.  His example should have the effect of  impressing upon the public men of Canada the wisdom of standing for the public  interest on every occasion, and of resisting by every means in their power the  efforts of .corporation in schemes that are  inimical to the-public welfare. r  Hon. Joseph Martin stands today as a  champion of the people���one whom all  classes believe to be superior to any temptation Avith .which'he can be confronted  to sacrifice them for a consideration. If  added to his public spirit he had political  sagacity and a genial disposition, he  Avould be the most poAverful and successful politician in Canada.  FULL LINE OF  HOTEL   ARRIVALS.  .1. T).

Remember li-IMliii
Edward Bray, one of the best known
of the old timers of Kootenay, is in Nelson,
after an absence of six years. No man
underwent greater hardships in the early
days than Mr. Bray, for he had the contract for carrj'ing the mail from Sand
Point, a station on the Northern Pacific
railway, to Wild Horse ereek, in East
Kootenay, over and unbroken trail in
winter. Afterwards he carried the mail
from Kootenay Station, Idaho, to Nelson
and. Ainsworth, in the winter months.
He is now taking it easy, having made a
stake out of the Crow's Nest Coal Company, of which he was one of the original
James Dawson of Trail is in Nelson
estimating what he "would have been
worth had he remained here and rebuilt
the International hotel, which Avas destroyed by fire in 1S93.
At a meeting of the police commissioners, held yesterday afternoon, the resignation of chief McKinnon was tendered
aud accepted. W. R. Jarvis, who has
beeu on niglit duty as a policeman, : was
appointed, chief upon probation, and provincial constable V Wilson, whose headquarters were at Kuskouooky Avill be.
offered the appointment as..policemen for
cided to issue no miners' certificates to
companies. Their grievance is that
nothing of the kind was contemplated or
hinted at Avhen the bill Avas before the
house, and that the government should
have publicly proclaimed its policy to
ivvoid useless expense and disappointment.
Anti-Japanese Legislation Disallowed.
Victoria, June 5.— Interviewed today
on the subject of the disallowance of the
anti-Japanese legislation by the Ottawa,
authorities, premier Semlin said the matter of the re-enactment of the disallowed
act would be left to the legislature, the
government being willing to adopt any
course which the house might direct.
lion. Joseph Martin makes the surprising statement that he had not even seen
any communication from Ottawa, asking
the provincial government to withdraw
the ineu.sure. "Sucli a communication
may have come to the governor, but I
have never seen it." r
lion. ... Fred Hume expressed himself
in .similar terms, and added that he concluded, when he saw the dispatch from
Ottawa on Saturday, stating that the
government had been asked to withdraw'
the measure, tliat it must have come before the council while lie was in the upper country.
Would Like to Know His Name.
NKLSON. Juno 5th. IS!)!).
To tho Kditor of The Tribune-.
Dear Sir: Would the gentleman who styles himself
"A Nelson Busines- Man" be good enough to furnish his
name lo nn interested public? When a writer crouches
behind a iioin de plume Lojgivo'vent to such funalieal
spleen, he .slmws an amount of cowardice that is not
Mattering. He evidently disregards the fact, tliat the
_acl_bon» of this country is the hard-handed miner.., from
whom all such as he must and do prolit. Scarcely less to
blame is a newspaper that would publish such a communication without at tiiching the name of the writer.
Fair-minded men un both sides will heartily resent, the
unjust comment and interference of this person.
