 CUT  THE  TAX RATE IN TWO  Finance Committee at Fault.  The most important business transacted at yesterday's session of the city  council was the adoption of alderman  Fletcher's suggestion that the rate of  taxation for general purposes as recommended by the finance committee should  be cut in two. The circumstance that  the council adopted the contention of the  chairman of the public works committee  is siillicient evidence that the finance  conimittee jumped at its conclusion iu  fixing the rate. If as the council now  says ji rate of three mills will raise .siillicient revenue for general purposes there  (ran be no defence for the committee in  recommending a rate of six mills, -The  amendment altering the rate was made  while the council was in committee of the  whole. Tho bylaws were then reported  'complete with amendments and received  their third reading. Following their  third reading the formal motion for the  reconsideration of the bylaws at the  nexb meeting of the council Avas passed.  Tenders were received for the completion of the electric light lluino. They  were as follows: J. P.'Cameron, 25 cents  per lineal foot, MacBeath <fe Peters, 15  cents, John Lindblad, 2S cents, John  Lynch, 22 cents, aiid Thomas Dempster,  17 cents.  As the tenders did not include the  work required in finishing the necessary  grading, being only for tho carpenter  work in completing the Hume, it was  moved by alderman Fletcher, seconded  by alderman Thomson, that the city  engineer be requested to go with Messrs.  MacBeath ��fc Peters over the ground and  obtain from them a price for doing the  necessary grading.work. In the meantime the tenders for the flume work were  referred to the public works committee  with power to act.  Tenders were also received for the  erection of a lire station on Observatory  street. The figures were: Allan Brothers  $258, Thomas W. Houston $370, and  Thomas Dempster "$315. On motion of  alderman Thomson, seconded by alderman McKillop, the tender of Allan  Brothers was accepted.  Four applications were received for the  position of caretaker ofthe city cemetery.  The 'applicants   were   Alexander /Allan,"  John   Miles,'  William    Gorton   and  W.  .Jenkins.

IlRNr.KY, July G.���Despite a somewhat  ominous morning the grentes', crowd of  the week attended the regatta today, the  club houses iind the liouse boats being  centers of most vivacious and picturesque  troops of well dressed and,, groomed  women and men. The American iind  Canadian contingents were well represented, and hundreds .of transient visitors wore present. A prominent figure  was il. C. Lehman, who coached tho Harvard university crew, for tAvo seasons.  The scene, therefore, was much more  what one has learned to expect Henley to  be. Masses of boats Avere on the river,  while-the meadow swarmed with coaches  and wagonettes.  Interest centered in the race betAveen  the Argonauts of Toronto and the London Rowing Club, which proved a race  Avorth seeing. It looked like a good  thing for the visitors at first, but: the old  adage about youth and its day, came painfully into view again. /Phe Canadians  rowed  a-.wonderfully   game    race, ^ut  jroXwQU-aip'oh-G^  ����� _.L_6n���!" _ ��� _     b *_"��__ *;."��.-"."������ _*J&, .J,  \.i��."*Si',?,__"V"_>'"��,;yf,��,". ���."'  pximditsfironi. tlie  .^/tliffli^d^i'-^iaipt'i^iif^sille;!; .|^y.ica; ib*;  S/ni^^^feijJjl'e'-   ���'-���"���.��� i ...���'�����';.I��'>  "'__���.-:  ���J]/."Mie ��� ���iiOiiiitil, ",al$p t;dbeif|ed, |q; "Xsdll' fojv ]  ^"���feiiTteiiS.^  ;:ehc,q;iif cook's 'Of .200,0, checks ,ea%j ;fbr4_he -  ;��n "risjrol.

"with  MACKENZIE AND MANN'S MINES  To Be Stocked for Millions.  It is rumored that Mackenzie <fc Manny  the well known railroad contractors and  mine owners, are reported to be preparing to make a flotation of all, or a large  part, of their British Columbia mines iu  one large company. The greatest variation of the rumors is iu regard to the  number of properties included in the notation and the capital stock of the corporation. The first rumor, and the one  Avhieh seems to be most generally accept-,  ed, is that all of the Mackenzie and Mann  properties are included in the flotation.  This would include the great North Star  group and a dozen properties in the  Boundary country. If this is the scheme  iu contemplation, it is reasonable to suppose that the capital of the company Avill  be close to $10,000,000.  . The North Star Avould naturally be the  ��� great mine of this combination. This  group of fourteen claims, near Fort  Steele, in East Kootenay, is Avithout question destined to be one of the greatest  mines in the northwest, if.not in the  Avorld. Already it is accounted a great  mine and its enormous stores of ore aro  as yet practically untouched.  Crosscuts have been run for-hundreds  of feet and a great quantity of ore has  been shipped, but the North Star ledge  has yet to be determined. A shaft -was  sunk.on the great "blowout of ore to a  depth of sixty feet and crosscuts Avere  run in every directiou from its bottom,  but the Avails of the lead have "never  been determined. The ore is a fair grade,  Ciirryiug good values in silver and lead.  A syndicate of London capitalists recently asked for a short option upon this  group at $1,500,000, but Mackenzie &  Mann refused to even entertain the proposition.  There is little doubt but what a floatation of this property is under Avay, biit  whether-in a general combination-,-or- by  itself in London for $3,000,000 is not ye't  known. ,'-..,-" ���.';���:.���.'._'���-..���:,���..���  THE TOWN AND THE DISTRICT  pep:pJe*#lainerdi"M*yr��.,b  .fifed- ��� tl ife" ^iieai'i si ;- .jtjr -"Wasj 'bettcji' -$o.

Air. Cliaiubetiain  said in effect that his interest iu the Niger  company aviis ��'i000y and that when the  question of the revocation of thceoinpany's  charter arose, he asked tlie marquis of  Salisbury and his colleagues in the government to relieve him of any 'participation in the negotiations. In accordance  Avitli this request tlie negotiations had  been entirely in the hands of sir Michael  Hicks-Beach, chancellor of the exchequer.  Mr. Chamberlain added that he had  voted for the resolution of sir Michael  Hicks-Beach, Avliich AA'as only formal, but  that he avou Id not participate in any  .future discussion or vote. If he A'oted as  a shareholder he would vote against tlie  transaction.  -  An American Woman Made President.  London, July 6.���Mrs. May Wright  Sewell, president-of the American section  of the.

Peters, assistant trallic agent of  the Canadian Pacific Railway Company,  yesterday arrived at an agreement with  chief engineer Tye tis to a. schedule of  freight rates at which the contractors of  the Robson-Penticton road will carry  goods over the Boundary Creek branch  (luring the time the road will remain in  the hands of the contractors.  The fixing of the schedule   will   bo  of  great advantage   to  the  wholesale merchants of Nelson in that they arc now in  ii position to know just where tliey stand  with respect to   the   trade cof Boundary  Creek.    In hardware the railway officials  say that the company's   rate   to   Nelson  gives the Nelson jobber an advantageous  position with respect to Boundary Creek  business, and with respect to the grocery  trade negotiations are now going on with  a view to the removal of discriminations  which were brought to light  in  the conferences  betAveen   the  committee of tho  board of trade iind the railway company,  with   every  prospect of  a  satisfactory  solution. The merchants of the Boundary  district have been   holding  their orders  back as much as  possible,  awaiting  the  opening of the Boundary Creek branch,  and now that arrangements  have  been  perfected for the operation of the road  by the  contractors,  the  Nelson jobbers  sliould see to it that they put themselves  in touch  with   the  retail   merchants  of  that district and secure for Nelson that  portion of   the trade  which rightly belongs to i��  Ii. -K. Mticdonell, contracting freight  agent, will visit the Boundary district  next week and advise consignees of the  rates iind the dates at which they can  expect delivery over the line at different  points. At present the company expects  thatthe road will-be into Cascade City by  the middle of the present month and that  it Avill reach Grand Forks by the  middle of August. When the road  reaches the hitter point freight Avill bo  received for the Republic camp in Washington, the transfer from Grand Forks to  Republic being made by teams, lt Avill  be ��i couple of month's tit least before the  road reaches Greenwood.

SkvkNth Ykak, No. 'A'i  The Nelson Tribune mentions one business establishment there u'hich did more business lii.-f nionih than in  any previous month in it* history. This, is said in answer  tothc charge tlrat. the eight-hour law injures business.  Jf the house in question can prosper more because a  - large number of mines have shut down, UK proprietors  J "would, doublles.s make thoir fortunes l�� mining was  stopped entirely.  The above i.s from 'the Victoria Colonist,  a -newspaper   that- has   repeatedly  stated 'tliat the mining industry of the  .province   has  been ruined  through tiie  passage oi'a law that reduced tlie Avorking  houl's of underground miners from  ten to eight hours a day.    The Tri hunk  contends that the enforcement of the law  has -not materially affected  the mining  industry, except iu the Slocan  district,  and that the volume of business transacted by the leading -wholesale houses of  Nelson proves it.   'Ninety-five per   cent  ���of"theTnetalliferous"2nines"of thcpi-ovince-  are located  in Kast and West Kootenay  and Yale   districts.    These   mines gave  .ejnployment   directly1 and   indirectly to  0000 men on June 1st, ppd, it is safe to  say that 5500 men arc so employed today, at the same rate of wages ps was  paid before the eight-hour Jaw wei.t into.  tiiredt   It  is  time  tliat only a lihiited  niunber of the Slocan   mines tire Avorking  full forces, but it should be borne in mind  that   the province   has  not   reaped  that  benefit from the Slocan mines tluit it litis  from the niines around JRossland and Nelson, Avhicli continued   to work full forces  after the law became operative.    This i.s  because tiie bulk ofthe ore mined around  Rossland and Nelson i.s smelted in .British  Columbia, while fully ninety per cent of  the ore mined in the Sloean is smelted at  distant   points   in    the   United   States.  Every ton of ore mined and smelted in  the province  means   that  tAvo  men arc  directly   employed    in    its   mining   and  smelting,   and the  province gets the full  benefit of the   industry.    Every  ton   of  ore mined in the proA'ince and smelted in  the United   States means  tliat the prov-  ince gets only half of what it is fairly entitled to.  The Thiuunk is making arrangements  to publish a special edition, to be issued  as a Christmas number. Jt will be Avhat  -a special,edition should be. It will be  illustrated, but tho illustrations will be  of mines, mills,, smelters and industries  that arc -making Kootenay one of the  most prosperous sections of Canada. The  reading matter Avill be; a description of*  these industries*, and/not mere Avriteups  of individuals. 'Advertising space avi'11  be sold, and the advertisements will be  Avorks of art. Tne printing will be done  iu Nelsou.  The operation, of smelters in British  Columbia means that for eArery man employed in a mine another Avill be employed in a smelter, therefore it is to be  hoped that the suspension of Avork in the  Slocan mines Avill result in   tho  cancella  tion of every contract now existing between these mines and American smelters. If such is the result, the enforcement of the eight-hour law will have  done more for the province than all the  other laws passed in the last ten years.  ])a*vii> Mark Caislky, .journalist and  politician, <|iiiet!y slipped out of Nelson  yesterday afternoon and hied himself oil'  to Kaslo to enter matrimony, a state that  is said to ennoble till those who enter it.  I'Yoni this time on the editorials of the  Economist will be more elevated in tone,  anil the haunts of the politician will no  longer be the haunts of David Mark.  Exercise for Women.

Witli  those  people history will go  for nothing.    The  truth is,  tliat tho Boors owe their present security  solely  to  the  British  government.    An  .Knglish army broke the power of Ccte-  wayo and his anny  of 50,000  desperate  savages, about the most formidable force  that barbarians have ever put in the field  in modern times.    The  other chief, Seco-  eoeni,  whom the  Boers had   never been  able to hold their own against, was suppressed by British  soldiers.    When the  British government had moved every obstacle out of the way of the Boers, the  Boers themselves arose, armed Avith the  finest   sporting rifles that  money could  buy,  purchased   from  English   traders,  and the first notice  the English received  was not to go along a certain  road, and  when  they   proceeded  along   that   road  they   were shot down like dogs.    They  gave the British a fearful defeat at Majlibit hill on  February 20th,  1881.    Indeed,  through the whole war the British hardly won a success.     The Boers proclaimed  a republic, and the British regiment that  had been ordered to concentrate at Pretoria,,was ordered'back by the-Boers, and  when  the  commander  refused,   from  a  well-concealed ambush the Dutch opened  "fire,, and,in five minutes every officer and  - half: the privates . had beeu, "shot  clown.  Then.caine the- defeat of the British im;  dor.general  Colley at taxing's Nek.   .The.  British were driven from the'mountains;.  and.fchon a peac;e was patched  up which  lias lasted tip-to today.    The success in  that war make tlie Boers believe that in.  T any war they can  whip the English, and  with Jtiiat feeling iii��� their  minds, it. is  possible that Kitchener will.have to  repeat in South Africa on  the Boers what  he performed onthe-Mahdi on the upper  Nile. -   Crow's Nest Pass Coal and Coke.  Forme Free Press.  The shipments of coal and coke from  Forme in the month of June will bo about  the same tis during May, viz., 10,0.00 tons  of coal and 2000 tons of coke. The demand for coal in the Hlast is somewhat  less*.iu. con^ecjueucie of the warni ^efytheE  III "fact tliis: remark applies generally to  tlie domestic traclo; but shipments, of  stea.i.ii coal are oh ttiQ increase, and of  t^coiir.se=thc-deinand=foii'-coke=is=in-excess-  of pi'eSent production. It is also gratifying to find that this coal is incPeasiiig in  "fa;vo:r for blacksmith purposes, and is  rapidly displacing Pennsylvania eoal.  i")evelo*ijiiient work at both the mines,  and coke ovens is going on at a great  pace. The f0-foot seam Which was bored  into a fortnight ago 'will be readied by a  tunnel abotit the middle of next mouth,  iind shipments' therefrom will follow'  shortly afterwards: Tho progress tit the  coke ovens has been very rapid, and it  now .seems certain tliat tin* full iininbei*  required can be built this season, viz.,  250, making a total.of 300. ]t is well to  have an object in view, and the shipment  of 1000 tons per day of coal froin the  mines tliis fall, and -LOO tons of coke per  day from the ovens5 is certainly a good  mark, and there is no doubt it will bo  reached.   Got tlie Best of a Great Orator.  "The general impression is," said the  professor, "tliat CorWin was never disconcerted by any antagonist. But there  was an old story current in central Ohio  thirty-five or forty years ago showing  tho contrary. Soon after Antioch college, at Yellow Springs, began to achieve  a reputation under Horace Maim there  Wits an outbreak among the students.  In attempting to quiet the disturbance  one of tlio professors was roughly  bandied. The professor insisted that the  ringleader in the hazing frolic threatened  him with a heavy cane and finally struck  him. The student was arrested on complaint of the officers of the college, who  were represented in court by 'Tom'  Gov win.  "Corwin's great reputation and his  manner took nearly all the fight out of  the students who were standing by the  parties'under arrest. Gorwin Avas carrying all before him, making witnesses say  almost . what he   wanted  them  to   say,  wheu one of the principal offenders took  the stand. This young follow admitted  that tho professor was threatened with  mines, but denied that ho was struck by  any one. fie said, in fact, the boys only  wanted to scare the professor, and had  no thought of hurting him. The witness  was a quiet, athletic fellow, and as he  made this explanation he smiled at the  exaggerated look of amazement ou Gor-  win's face.  "Corwin made the witness show how  tho canes Avere flourished about the professor's head and questioned: him persistently as to how close the canes Avent  to the professor's nose. He began with  five inches find forced the witness to say  thatthe distance was not greater than  three inches, two inches, one inch. Then  triumphant, he took the cane,from the  hand of the witness, iind, flourishing it  about the young fellow's head so close as  to make him dodge, thundered, 'If a man  sliould flourish a heavy cane about your  head like this, and this, and this, within  an inch of your nose or ear or hair, Avhat  would you think; .what would you do,  sir?' The student, who had been dodging this .'.way and tliat,'���..much to the  amusement of the spectators, suddenly  sprang to his feet, and, imitating Corwin's intense, dramatic maimer and his  humorous voice, said,.''I would welcome  him sir, Avith bloody ha.nds to a hospitable grave.! This application of the famous sentence in Corwin's. speech on the  Mexican Avar brought down the house  and threw the great orator off his base."  Those Yukon Charges.  Hamilton Herald.  In   his  reply to sir Hibbert Topper's  Yukon charges Mr. Sifton displayed his  usual  cleverness and force as a debater.  He found several flaws in the indictment  H. Dv Ashcroft  BLACKSMITHING  AND EXPERT  HORSESHOEING  Wagon repairing.promptly .attended lo by a flrst-class  .wheelwright.  Special attention^given to all kinds of repairing and  custom wo'rk from outside points.  and he made the most of them.    His general  defence was  that  the charges were  trivial,  and    that   commissioner Ogilvie  can safely be trusted to investigate all  the irregularities charged against the Yukon administration.    Mr. Sifton promised  that if Mr. Ogilvie's report was not satisfactory,   further investigation  would be  ordered.    While Mr. Sifton's speech i.s to  be   admired  as a  specimen  of  political  fencing, it is not likely to prove satisfactory to the general public.    It was meant  to excuse the government's  refusal of an  ollicial     investigation    of �� the    Tupper  charges.    We believe that many  of the  government's best supporters will regret  that the government has resolved upon  the refusal.    It Avill be remembered that  when    sir   Hibbert   Tupper    made    his  famous Yukon speech early in the session,  ho was accused of making vague charges  which he  could not  substantiate, and it  was  promised on  behalf of the government   that if  he  put his charges in the  proper form aud resumed the responsibility for them, the investigation asked for  would  be  granted.     The   charges have  been formulated, and sir Hibbert has undertaken  the  responsibility  of  proving  them them before an impartial tribunal  appointed   by   parliament.      It   is   not  enough to  point out  two or'three blunders which have beeu made in  drawing  up the charges.    Surely the government  does  not desire  to sidetrack  the  whole  matter by pleading technical "flaws in the  indictment.    That  plea.-might  pass iu a  court of laAV,  but not'before'the  bar of  public opinion.''   We don't  believe  that  any corruption or serious irregularity cau  be   traced to  Mr.   Sifton.    Iu  trying to  avert investigation the strong probability  is that he is not influenced by any fear of  consequences  so far   as he is personally  concerned;  but there seems to be some  ground for the insinuations of the opp.)s-  FULL LINE OF  ition that the���minister is desirous of  shielding some of his political friends,  who hold ollice iu the Yukon, from the  Avhite light of an official investigation.

George Holbrook was arrested by  provincial police nt his residence  evening upon the charge of stealing  burrs from a wagon belonging to II  Hawley. The prisoner was brought before stipendiary magistrate Crease at  II o'clock. He'pleaded' not guilty and  was admitted to bail, himself in the stun  of $200 and William Irvine in the sum of  $100 to .appear for trial this afternoon at  2 o'clock. S.S. Taylor ji p|icitred for the  complainant Haw Icy and A. AI. Johnson  for the prisoner. It appears that Hawley  and Holbrook had a, dicker for a wagon  whieh belonged to the hitter. Hawley  says that he secured the wagon from  Holbrook in a trade, and that Holbrook  afterwards tried to get it back. On the  night of June Kith the burrs were, taken  off the Avagon by someone, and Hawley  suspected Holbrook. A reward of $75  was offered for information which Avould  lead to the conviction of the offender.'  This brought information its to the  Avherettbouts of the burrs and the same  wore- recovered at Holbrook's dumping  ground.  Paid $3000 for Two Lives.  The C. P.
