 THE LAW ANDTHUAW COURTS  Jurors  Split  the  Difference.  The case of Davis vs. Cummings occupied the attention of a judge and jury  all day yesterday.    The plaintiff had for  a long time acted  as  bookkeeper  to the,  defendant, and lie was suing for balance  of salary alleged   to  be  due  him.    The  defendant runs the Slocan hotel at Kaslo.  It appeared that tlie plaintiff had worked  for the defendant from  May   18th,   189(5,  until   April    13th,   1S99,   with    the exception of six or seven  months.    While  working * he   had   received  the   sum of  $1210   on   account   of    salary,   and   he  claimed tlie further sum of $15-0.20.    He  was also suing for $127.7s") alleged to have  been paid out by plaintiff for defendant  out of his own funds at  tlie  hitter's re-  quest, and for $12. on a note given him  liy   tlie   defendant  and   $11.87   interest  thereon.     Tlie  evidence   was   very contradictory.    The plaintiff swore tliat he  was engaged at a salary of $100 a month  and   board,  that  he  had  paid out the  $127.75 at defendant's request, and that  he had demanded  payment on the  $125  note.      The   defendant swore   that  the  plaintiff-was only engaged at the rate of  $00 a month, that he  had  not  paid  the  $127.75, and though  the  $125  note was  admitted, the defendant denied any demand for its payment which would dis-  , entitle the plaintiff to the $11.87 interest  on the same.    Mrs. Cummings also gave  evidence to the eifect that tlie plaintiff  had informed her that her husband had  engaged him for $50 a month.'' There was  a   counter   claim   for   $24,  which   was  dropped by mutual consent.  The jury were asked to answer the following questions:  (1) Was there aiiy agreement made for  wages between the plaintiff and the defendant?  (2) What was the amount agreed  upon? Y     ,  (3) If there was no such agreement,  what was the value of the plaintiff's service 'per month ?  (4) Was the $125.75 paid by the plaintiff out of his own funds?  (5) Was any demand made in, respect  of the promissory note for $125?  After an absence of nearly au hour the  jury returned and handed in their verdict. Tliey did not answer the first and  second questions, they placed the value  of the plaintiff's services at:$70. a. month  and board, and they* found that a demand had been made for the payment of  ;��� the promissory note.

The  race was witnessed by a large gathering, though of course the interest  was not as great as it was  when the Dominion successfully defended  tlie Scawauhaka cup last year. Tlie  start was made af 2.27, the Dominion at  once taking the lead and never relinquishing it. The Canadian boat showed  herself much Superior in windward work,  most of her gains being made there. She  outpointed the Yankee. Towards the  end of the race the Yankee lost considerable ground by becoming becalmed, while  the Dominion had a faint flutter of wind  to help her along towards the home  buoy.  UNION   MINERS   CALLED   OUT  Of Three Properties Yesterday.  , The eight-hour law went into eifect  yesterday, and in consequence of a disagreement with the managements of the  Athabasca, Granite and Royal Canadian  mines over the scale of wages to be paid,  the union ordered all its members out  of these three properties.  At the Royal 'Canadian mine the summons of the union was obeyed by every  miner iu the company's employ. At the  Granite there AA'as some misunderstanding-on the part of'the miners and they  did not respond to the call at once, but  the greater number of them did so later  in the day, and it is expected that the  property will be completely closed down  this morning.  At-the-Athabasca mine the greater  number of the men quit work aud came  'down the hill. Some of the meu continued at work but it is said that virtually  the entire night shift left the mine. As  the men.who came out in obedience to  the call of the union have not all reported it is impossible to say just Iioav  many are left at the Athabasca but the  number is variously stated at from ten  to thirty-five men.

Toronto, June 12.���Miss Eva Booth of  the Salvation Army, is appealing before  the divisional court to set aside a judgment from chancellor Boyd, granting  Mrs. Jane Eves a doAver in the estate of  her late husband.

Joseph Martin, attorney-general",  and minister of education in the Semlin  administration, had a conference Avith  tho Nelson board of school trustees yesterday afternoon, when the differences  existing betAveen the local board and the  education department Avere gone into.  Although Hon. Joseph Alartin lias been  minister of education for several months'  ho informed the local trustees that until  the recent trouble over the closing of a  portion of the scho.il cropped up he had  no inkling of any differences existing be-  AA'een the local board and tire department.  He also said that he had never heard of the  board's request for $0000 for the purpose  of adding another story to the older portion of the present school buildings.  With respect to the deductions to be  made in the salaries of the teachers for  loss of time occasioned by the trustees,  action in closing their class rooms, the  minister accepted full responsibility. He  contended that the trustees should not  haA'e closed any of the classes altogether  but should have relieA'ed the overcrowding by putting the classes upon half  time.  When asked as to Avhat chance there  Avas for securing the amount requested  by the trustees for bringing the accommodations up to the requirements, the  minister of education did not hold out  much hope as he said the unappropriated  vote for educational purposes AA'as A*ery  small. When the legislature meets again  the matter'could be arranged, but he re-  eoguized that this process would not relieve the probable overcroAvdiug Avhen  the school reopens after the midsummer  holidays.  Upon the question of making Nelson a  separate school district he said that if it  AAras the wish of the people of Nelson to  manage the schools of the city the government Avould pass the necessary legislation at the next session of the house.  Upon this matter he likewise said that  he Vhad  no information  until  after the  THE TOWN AND THE DISTRICT  Foolishness Rebuked This Time.  Messrs. Elliot & Lennie made application yesterday to W. A. .Jowett. for permission to alloAV the foremen at the  Athabasca mine to carry reA'olvers. The  application Avas based upon the testimony of an employee of the Athabasca  company, who expressed tlie opinion that  the men Avhom it Avas proposed to arm  Avere mild mannered and not likely to  hurt any ono. The justice decided that  the evidence did not disclose any necessity for granting the permission,-and he  accordingly refused it.

NEW   DENVER.  y A company has been registered at  Somerset House, London, under the title  of the Enterprise Miues, Limited, for the  purpose of acquiring the Enterprise mine  on Ten-mile creek, under au agreement  Twith the Loudon & British Columbia  Goldfields, Limited. The capital of the  company is -��150,000 in ��1 shares, and  the prosierty to be acquired consists of  tAAro claims and a fraction knoAvn as the  Enterprise, Slocan Queen and Enterprise  fraction.  the mine under the new conditions will  then be settled. This mine has in the  pasf been Avorking under an eight-hour  system, paying the men $3.50 per shift,  and it is considered quite probable that  this system -will be continued.  Today a pack train lea\*es for the  Essex group, so that the shut-down of  that property seems doubtful. The Essex is not in the mine owners' association. . "   .  The miners' union held a big meeting  here on Saturday night. Tliey passed^  several resolutions, copies of AA'hich are  being circulated.  SALMO.  Billings & Bennett, the OAvners of the  Yellowstone mine near Salmo, lnwe'*; discovered the YelloAvstone A'ein on the  Yosemite, the northeastern extension of  the first named property.

The poor oldmeiital imbecile  /er dreamed that .his stomach would  iiituaHy rebel against trying to extract  fifty-five   elements   of nature from  ff_teless,   slimy, swamp grown rice.   A  nnd of  i-ice. or. oat.meal ..may. contain  n-e   nutriment than   a pound of beef  t a hungry man can easily .devour two:  uuds of beef at a.meal, -while, aquai.ter  a   pound of rice   or oatmeal   would  mder a hound .pup."  dynamite no larger than a pea���and  there will be wholesale fear and soft coal  in that boy as long as he lives. I have  seen a case of 100 sticks of dynamite fall  SOO feet down a shaft and never wink,  and I've seen an Italian drop a half cartridge from his hand to his boot and not  a grease spot did the poor fellow leave  behind.  "At that the poor fellow deserved a  better fate, for he made a desperate fight  for it before he scattered. : lie was loading a block-hole at the time, and had just  broken a cartridge in half, when he  dropped one of the pieces. Before*, it  could touch the ground he sort of.half  caught it, and then began a desperate  brief juggling act. Again . aud again he  half caught the deadly thing. Then he  missed it. He made one last effort, and  stuck out his foot.. to; break the. fall  against the hard ground, but it didn't  work. There was a bang, and it was  lucky no one stood near him. Which  shows that dynamite'is like a woman,  because in my time I have dropped similarly, hundreds of cartridges of dynamite,  and. still I am here and with a good -'.digestion.  "But it is in winter,  when  dynamite  freezes, that it is most capricious.   Then  ! if you want it to go off it simply refuses,  Or burns-vwith a  dull roar;.;.like a, boiler  blowing off steam.    It is in thawing dynamite 'that most of the accidents happen^ about* which you  read.   There are  two ways of thawing dynamite���one, by  placing the  cartridges on  a steam boiler  or   within safe   distance of   a fire; the  other, by immersing them;iu pails of hot  water.    As the latter method draws out  considerable of the nitro-glycerine from  (the  cartridges,.and, therefore, weakens  .them, it is often   discarded  in   favor of  the more risky thawing by an open fire.  I once  saw an  experienced powder man  thaw a dozen cartridges by an open fire,  though, as the sequel will show, he completely, lost his head  when suddenly confronted with an unusual emergency.    He  had placed the cartridges  within a foot  of an open wood fire and had seated himself nearby to await developments" when  -one  ofthe  cartridges caught fire.    Had  he left it  to burn itself out the chances  are a thousand to ono that nothing very  startling would have  happened, for it is  concussion  and not   fire that   explodes  dynamite.    Instead, he rushed forward,  picked up the burning stick by one end,  and holding it upward like a candle began to bio wand blow until lie was black  in  the, face.    He never let go  until- the  flame began to nip his fingers, and then  inchis excitement he throw the cartridge  to the ground and began to stamp and  grind on it with his heels as if lie were  killing   a   snake;   aud,  by thunder!  lie  . stamped- put the burning cartridge and  lived   to   tell   about it!    The cart boys  called him -Angel' after that, because by  rights lie ought to be an angel now.  "One day a professor from Stevens Institute of Technology came to tlie quarry  and asked me to perform a certain experiment for Mm. We printed with dynamite direct from a newspaper onto a  block of iron. The professor said the ex-  -porimeut"proved~most-intere~sting7~as-lKr  had .discovered among other "things that  proving.-that.in a quarry is to lay a stick  of dynamite on.top of a boulder. After  the shot the boulder is smashed to ;bits.  But, the,professor had his own notions.  He carried three .round, blocks of iron,  six inches in diameter and three inches  thick. Then he took a newspaper from  his pocket and spread one sheet over the  face of the block. I placed, half, a stick  of dynamite on top and covered it with a  little, heap of sand , and touched her off.  You would hardly believe the result, but  you can see the block on exhibition in a  glass case in the Stevensinstitutelibrary,  and you can read , on it distinctly���of  course, the type appears -.backward���the  printing of that part of the paper which  covered the block at the time of the explosion. But the professor, had. another  wrinkle up his sleeve. He picked an ordinary oak leaf and spread it over the  face of a second block.- I prepared a  charge similar to the first and.this time  the ribs of the leaf and even its outlines  appeared distinctly pressed into the iron  surface. According to .the professor, the  action of the dynamite was so.quick that:  the ribs of the leaf had not time to burst  apart before they were impressed on the  iron. In the case of the newspaper the  printed letters .were harder than the sur-  FULL UNEOF  rounding white of the paper, therefore  the impression.  "The professor's third block is not on  exhibition for the reason that Ave never  found a piece of it larger than a clove���  and that reminds me, what do you-say?"  The reporter said "Yes."

The total roouisition  come to $'.,"iJ):. and tlieaniountsubscribed  so far is $.. .00. There: was a large attendance of members of the committees,  the mayor being in the chair, and alderman Thomson was chosen secretary. The  lirst report road was that of tlio horse  race committee. Tlieir prograinnie included six events, all quarter-niile races  except ono.

Fraser, manager of the Bank of Montreal  at Rossland, Herbert l.'itts, mayor of  Sandon, and Bru_e��Wl_il_e of this city be  asked to officiate as judges.  Tho drilling contest committee asked  for $575, part of which is to bo spent in  buying a silver hammer, which will be  the property of whoever A\*ins it three  times in succession. The conditions of  tlio contest call for three holes to be  drilled, a dowirhole a breast hole and an  upper hole. The time of drilling will be  ten minutes for each hole.  There are thirteen events in the Caledonian sports programme, including a  quarter-mile race, a 100 yards race,*a 220  yards and a tug of .war. The committee  wanted $208 for prizes.  The firemen's sports will consist of a  hub-and-hub race, 200 yards carrying  five lengths of hose, and a wet tost over  the same distance, seven lengths of hose  to be carried and live lengths to be, laid.  The lacrosse committee held out hopes  of the Rossland, ReA'elstoke and New  .Denver teams coming hero, and also  wanted ball throwing competitions and  races amoug the members of the teams.

The boating committee had arranged  the following prograinnie: The ������international" fours, open fours, tandem and  single canoe races, and a sculling race.  They asked for $IS0.  The decoration committee wanted $U50  and the invitation committee $.">0() for  the entertainment of guests.  As the sums asked for were so much  more than the money in hand a. committee consisting of .1. A. Turner. Or. La Ban,  Dr. Hall, J".lake Wilson and I). \V.  Carley wore appointed to cut down  the estimates. They did so with the result, among others, that the decoration,,  invitation and cricket committees wore  loft with nothing. There was disatisfae-  tion with-..soine of the .conclusions and  the report was debated in detail. One  hundred dollars more Avas taken off the  horse races and illuminations after an  attempt to take the trap shooting appropriation had failed. An attempt was  made to get the lawn tennis money for  the same object, but it also failed, the  above being the only alteration made in  the committee's report.  The appropriation of prize money as  eventually recommended by the coin-  mittoe was as 'follows: Horse races,  $900: drilling crntest, $500, Caledonian  sport, $175; hose cart races, $500; boat  races a.iid illuminations, $450; lacrosse,  $250 ; bicycle races, $100 ; base ball, $250 ;  children's sports, $35; trap shooting,  $100; lawn tennis, $75; and trades procession, $100.
