Everything Running Smoothly
Tlie first thought  apparent  in  eA'ery
one's mind yesterday  Avhen   they  arose
Avas, Avhat Avill the Aveather be like?   But
a glance  at the sky allayed  every  one's
fears  for the morning   Avas  bright  and
beautiful as could be Avished, as   befitted
the celebration   that was   to take  place.
Baker street no longer a  plain   business
thoroughfare,   Avas  a   thing   of  beauty.
Trees had been placed on both sides, and
there were bunting and flags galore from
the west end  of the street  down to the
east end where the  decorations on judge
Form's   residence stood   out conspicuous.
The trades'  procession   was  scheduled
I'or 10 o'clock, but it was nearly 11:30 before it started.    When   it   did   come   no
one remembered the waiting.    It may be
said without   boasting that   such a  procession has never been   seen in Kootenay
before.    All agreed that many more pretensions   parades   gotten   up   in    much
larger cities  fall ghort of yesterday's exhibition   in   the  taste,  originality   and
beauty Avhieh characterized all the floats.
There Avere fourteen   floats in all, though
Reisteror & Co., the Hudson Bay Co. and
the  Miner  Printing  and   Publishing Co.
did not take part.  The float of the latter
A\ras pied.   Manager Waterman, mounted
and in gala array came  galloping  round
the corner.   .The Miner float  (led  incontinently and   was  unfortunately  unable
to take any further part   in the proceedings.     The   parade   Avas   led   by   A. J.
Marks ou   his   race horse, then came   the
band, which was  followed   by a detachment of the  Nelson rifle  company,
hind them were the uniform rank   of the
Knights of Pythias soldiery and martial in
appearance as ever. The Trail band came
next and closed  a fitting  prelude to  the
parade that Avas to   foi Ioav.    Next  came
the   floats   in   the   following order.    The
children's float with nearly forty  pretty
--'children,'P. Burns■&  Co.,  D.  McArthur
&   Co., Kootenay   Cigar   Manufacturing
Co., M. DesBerisay & Co., Nelson Planing
Mills, Fred  Irvine & Co., Neelaud's Shoe
Enipori mn, Hudson  Bay   Co., J. A. Say
illOW, TlMIlUNl'l
Association, C. E. Chase
and then the Salvation Army band.
Then followed a number of callithum-
pians, tAvo of Avhom seated in a donkey
cart and represented a nigger and his
"honey" created roars of laughter. These
Avere Mr. and Mrs. Harrison, and the
former got the prize for the best calli-
thuin in costume.     There  Avere also  ah
farina, generally known as Dago Bill,
mounted on a cayuse leading an old time
time pack mule loaded with pork, representing Iioav meat Avas packed into the
Kootenay by Wilson & Perdue in 1893.
Following this Avere W. 3. Wilson, Kootenay manager of the present company of
P. Burns & Co., and Thoburn Allen in an
elegant top buggy drawn by a handsome
team of carriage horses, representing the
present head offices of the company.' Jn
the rear Avas a car draAvn by six horses
in which Avere ten employees of the company showing the different processes
through which the meat goes before being placed on the breakfast tables. Tlie
live animals were taken as the procession
moA'ed along the street, butchered, hung
up and'thc different parts cut up ready
for market;.
R. lleisterer <te Company's brewery
float Avas unfortunately prevented from
joining in the general parade OAving to a
break doAvn in the wagon, but it is deserving of-.special mention. Mr. Reisterer
had gone to a great expense in fitting up
a display of the goods manufactured at
his establishment. Sheaves of barley
were imported from southern California,
hops from Washington state, and the
Be-J^Avhole process of brewing the beer that
"makes Nelson famous," was represented.
Seated on the throne in the front part of
the float, was a representative of king
Caiubrimis, a German king avIio first
breAved beer in Saxony in the year 1240.
At the rear Avas a representation of a
German beer garden, from Avhieh refreshments were served to all who desired.
In the center of the float Avas a large
chip cask of fifty barrels ■Avliich represented a whole brewing.
The Hudson's Bay Company Avere particularly unfortunate Avith their float,
■Avliich Avas one of the most attractiA'e features of the procession. Through some
misunderstanding Avith the committee
just as the procession Avas about to start
it .'was found that the float had been
built tAArenty-tAVO feet high Avheii the
Avires across the streets Avould only alloAV
a float of twenty feet to passunder.
The  car Avas;Arery  tastefully decorated,

Avho distributed some of their firm's excellent Cigars among the droAvd. Bunches
of raAv leaf Avere hung about the car,
which Avas tastefully decorated With flags
and bunting.
The Miner Company had a well gotten
up float descriptive of the art of type
setting, but, for reasons chronicled above,
it took no part in the procession.
The Tribune float Avas an unassuming
affair—just planks on Avooden rollers and
labelled "The Old Timers." Ou it the

The Nelson boys struck another batting
streak in the ninth, ..when. Fawkes,-who
was put In tlie box after the seventh in-
B a well-bred, racing looking strawberry
roan won the first heat easily by a length
and a half.    The city band paraded down
the street.after Avhicli the horses entered
for the quarter   mile   for   Nelson   horses
lined up.    There were five of them, Kelly
«fc Sleeper's Speck, A. J. Marks' Fly Binder,   Blake    Wilson's  Butcher    Boy,  .1.
IIirsch's Molly   and  P. 3. llussell's Oleomargarine.      The   public pieforeneo was
divided      between     Marks'     black    and
Hirsch's bay'mare, and these two fought
out the finish together,the latter winning
a   good _ race   by   half   a   length.    The
judges  did   not   place   the  tliird   horse.
The second heat of the open quarter then
came up with the.same result, save  that
Jennie B's jockey let her go at  thecfinish
this time, and she avou by at least  three
lengths.    Great interest centered   in the
second heat  for the  Nelson   horses,  and
the" race   Avas  eAren   closer than before.
Fly Binder and Molly Avere  ahead of the
ruck and  came racing neck and neck for
the Avire.    When a feAV strides from  the
winning   post,   Molly,  splendidly ridden
by Patterson,  came out and   won   very
cleverly by a neck.    It was tlie prettiest
finish that has been seen in Nelson  for a
long time.'

The Firemen's Eaces.
The unexpected happened in the firemen's sports, in that Nelson lost the hub
aiid hub race Avhieh Avas looked upon as
a safe thing and won the wet test, which
Avas virtually conceded to Rossland. The
huh and hub'race Avas as pretty a sight
as could be wished for. The Nelson boys
got considerable advantage at the start,
aiid over the first half of the course
maintained a nice lead, but as the
teams1 passed the Bank of British
Columbia the Rossland boys crept up
upon, them and for several yards the
teams ran on eAren terms. Through the
heaA*y portion of the road tlie Rossland
boys gained, and Avhen they crossed the
line they had a good three foot lead.
The time for the 200 yards which Avas
OA'er a very heavy road was giA'en as 23i
seconds. The names of tlie Rossland
teams as published in The Triuunk Avere:

The Ball Game,
Fully 2000 people Witnessed the base
ball game between the Blair college team

game Avith a safe hit aud Avas folloAvedby
FaAvkes, Who made a safe hit to short.
Au error in the left field and a stolen

runs. The next man up, Grobel, sent a

readily agreed to give up their arms and
staled that they were prepared to accept
any form of government the commission
niight recommend, even if the kingship
was abolished. Mataafa also readily
agreed to give up the guns held by his
party, but insisted that-as the weapons
were the private property of the natives
they should receive compensation for
The commission issued a proclamation
stating that guns Avould either be returned or proper payment made for them
after all troubles had been settled. This,
of course, means that payment "will be
made, as it would be folly to return the
Avcapons. Mataafa's party also asked to
be represented by attorneys before the
commission, but tlie request avus declined.
After Mataafa's men had turned in eighteen hundred rifles and tlie Tanii'supporb-
ers a thousand more, Tanu avus invited
onboard the Badger. There he Avas informed that the commissioners supported
the decision *of chief justice Chambers,
and that Tanu had been king of Samoa
ever since the decision had been rendered.

About half of these passengers left Dawson on June Mth and the others on the

The tiiagni-  fceiit distances which .scpnrated it from  the centers of wealth and popnhition  A\*ere only ovel'C'ome by an iininonsity of  patient toil and rndQini_.t_l._fc pluck. Tlvo  iKootciiays were oif its outer verge. They  xvere literally a terra incognito. With  the entrance.of the province into the  confederated sisterhood ami the construction of the Canadian Pacific raihvay  by the young Dominion came the beginning of that ei a of prosperity which is  jioav rapidly carrying the province to the  forefront. With easy means of transit  came an influx of population, bringing  tlie wealth of the Hast to tiie develop-  menfc of tlie vast resources of tho West.  Trade found new channels and the necessities of the incoming immigrants gave  an unwonted impetus to the industries of  those Avhom they had left behind them.  Ncav centers of population came into existence, and with them came cultivation  and refinement. The trades' procession  of   yesterday  accentuated, the advance-  -���wient wliich has been inade  in. the newer  and more recently settled portions of the  province. The young city of Nelson is  tlie growth of but a decade. Its groAvth  has been rapid and steady, Its present  position is assured. But that position  hits been made possible by the confederation which it so creditably celebrated  this year. With a population energetic  and aggressive it Avill continue to advance  with even more rapid strides than has  already marked its career, until it is in  A'ery truth the center of the trade, the  industry and; the culture of the Kootenays. -    Trifi circumstance that 'black .'jack,  Klondike, chuck-n-luclc and other gambling; games were permitted to run all day  "yesterday in places licensed to sell liquor  is evidence that mayor Neelands does not  object to tin horns fleecing the people  whom Nelson has invited to assist in  celebrating the thirty -second anniversary  of confederation.

Miss  Soiina  Pit/.herbert Fox recently  took honors in the examination for bachelor of medicine at tho university of Durham, in England.

The picture  she sent to this year's Salon was the first  she had exhibited 111 many years. The  "l.<,eiiiii.i"iili.t5tes" .t'ho-i'eupoit assailed the  ���jtn'y witli-demands' that the "Medal of  Honor" sliould be awtu'ded to her, because she was ti woman. Tho artist wrote  a note to the jtry forbiddiiig the use of  Jicsi: name, "as it Would be I'idiciilous that  tlie iiisighilicant pictuve 1 exhibit this  yeai' should receive so high tin honor."  The story is told of general William.  Ludlow, nivsv niilitary governor Of Havana, tliat wheli lie was stationed: at De*  troiti,. soilie years ago, in charge of river  and luirbqr -work, he' was visited by a  contractor who, wanted to do some government work. With his visiting-card  b,y way of further introduction, the contractor put down oii tlie table a" crisp fifty 'dollar b|l'l. tmdlo,*-.*/ in.TXJ'G iip sign tis  to whothor lie had noticed this or ||not;  but saying they had better smoke while  talking, drew forth two cigars and gave  the contractor one of them. Theu, turning to the table and not seeiijg a match  he took the fifty-dollar note', twisted it  into a lighter, set it aflame at the open  grate fire, and lit his cigar with it slowly  aild carefully. Then he handed the burning stump of the bill to the contractor.  The United States court of appeals has  rendered a decision in the famous case of  Mrs. Hetty Green of Ncav York, who has  been fighting for twenty years to have  her title perfecttd to part ofthe old Gage  farm in Chicago, now valued at one million dollars or more, upholding her claims  to the property. When notified of. the  court's decision in her favor, she made  this cheracteristic remark: "Thissuitis  a part of the almost ceaseless litigation  which began one year before my father's  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and Letters  ol Credit on Skaguay, U.

I Jim a thoroughly determined woman, and the entire Seventh Regiment  with shotted guns can not keep me oif  when once I start in to defend my just  rights."  KingoAlbcrt of Saxony,'who celebrated  his seventy-first birthday last April, is  now one of the grand old men of Germany, and he is well entitled to the  epithet. For he is perhaps the soberest  and wisest soldier-sovereign in all the  Fatherland, much beloved of the emperor,  who went to Dresden to congratulate  him in person. The one mistake of his  life was to side with the Austria]is in  186(i, but iu the eyes of Prussia he more  than atoned for this by his championship  of a united Germany, in 1870, while he  commanded the Army of the Meusc, and  held the most important section in the  circle of the investment of Paris. King  Albert, prince Albrecht of Prussia., and  count Blumenthal are now the only field-  marshals surviving from the great war.  In.the early 'eighties the queen sent over  the earl of Fife at the head of a special  mission to invest her royal Saxton kinsman with the Garter. On his death-bed  the emperor Frederick committed his sou  and heir to the special care of his uncle,  the grand duke of Baden, and the king of  Saxony, and the impetuous young emperor has ahvays shown himself singularly  amenable to advice from those two Nes-  tors of the Fatherland.  Losses From Lightning.  Few questions are of greater interest,  whether considered from a practical or  theoretical standpoint than the manifestations of energy iu lightning discharges,  /flic practical side bf the problem appeals  directly to a great portion of'the "population^ but more' especially-to the people  who live in tlie country and the smaller  towns and villages. .-By the practical side  is meant a working knowledge of the  character of the lightning flash, tho kind  of object most frequently struck, methods of protection and the distribution of  destructive flashes both in time and over  space.  It would be of manifest advantage to  know the precise character of the ordinary lightning flash���whether, for example, it approximates a coudition of steady  flow or partakes of au oscillatory character, i. c., a current which rapidly reverses  its direction. A better knowledge than  we now possess of the kind of object most  frequently, struck, whether tree, dwelling house or barn, might be the moans of  saving human life. If, for example, certain trees are more apt to be struck by  lightning than others, they should be  avoided as a place of shelter in time of  thunderstorm. There are other lines of  inquiry ill whieh greater precision of  methods and devices would yield valuable returns.  A little over a y eiu^gpjijie dg^  country lost by lightning alone during  1898 live stock valued   tit  about  $50,000.  During the same time there were over  1S00 cases of destructive lightning strokes  on buildings, causing a nioney loss of  about $1,500,000. Three hundred and  sixty-seven lives were lost and 491 persons were more or less severely injured by  lightning stroke. The killed were in various conditions of environment���in  dwellings, barns, under trees and in the  open. More people were killed under  trees than in the open. It is not safe to  seek shelter from a thunderstorm under  a tree.  The regions of greatest danger from  lightning stroke appear to be iu Wyoming, Montana, Colorado and North Dakota, although more extended records are  required before a definite expression on  this question can be given. The statistics confirm the general, belief that  danger from lightning stroke is least in  closely built cities and greatest in the  open country.  The ratio of deaths to total population,  assuming the latter to be 08,000,000, is a  little over five persons in a million living,  a rate considerably larger than that of  England and Wales and Norway and  Sweden, but about hqual to that of Germany and Austria.

MANWACTUHHKS OV AND  DKAT.HHS IX  "of agrrelirtuve, tjirougli tlie * -weather  bureau, undertook the eollectiou' of statistics of lOBS of life arid property, especially in farming eomiiiunities, by lightning. The results of tlte first year's work  and considerable information of a general character are given in bulletin No.  '20 of the weather bureau just issued.  The bulletin consists: of two parts. The  iii'sti is' largely devoted to a discussion of  tlie eleetriffication of the atmosphere and  the methods of investigation that have  beeii pursued by diifofent experimenters.  The application of the knowledge thus,  gained to the construction of the apparatus for protection from lightning is ro-  viewed, and, finally, methods of pi-otoe-  tioii are discussed and rules for the erection of lightning rods are given. Tlie  latter are intended not only for the  guidance of persons desiring to. erect rods  themselves, but more particularly for.  those who may contract xy-iih others to.  do tlie work for them. It is quite essential tliat every person who feels the need  of a lightning rod should know himself  whether or not it has been properly constructed nnd placed upon his premises.  Part II, by Alfred J. Henry, contains a  summary of loss of life and property in  the United States by lightning during  1898, and so [far as known during previous years. Tile statistics are not by  any means complete, especially as regards  the loss of live stock by lightning. The  fact of greatest importance developed  thus far in the inquiry is that about one-  third of the cases of fatal lightning on live stock in the  fields occurred in . the immediate  vicinity of wire fences; indeed, there is  evidence that in some cases lightning  struck-the' fence at some, distance ..from  the place whei.e the stock was killed.
