Array -A:  '&/,,  %  ATLIN   ENTERS  ITS PROTEST  Against Government Regulations.  Sp-cial to Tlie Tribune.  Victoria, June 26.���The residents of  Atlin held a mass meeting ou the 10th  inst. and unanimously passed resolutions  calling upon the provincial government  to put an end to the present intolerable  conditions which keep the district at a  .standstill, and also in favor of granting  to companies leases for hydraulic mining  operations. Rev. Pringle, Dr. Munroe  and captain Langley were appointed a  deputation to proceed to Victoria to lay  the citizen..' petition before tlie government. Brownleo, surveyor, sent by the  provincial government to.Atlin, has resigned to follow privately the practice of  his profession. lie .says he has about  completed the work required by the government.  A conimittee of citizens some time ago  decided to make borings in the harbor to  determine the feasibility of Sorby's live  million scheme. Dominion engineer Roy  estimated that the borings would cost  four hundred dollars. The committee  put five nien at work, but in four days  tliey had bored only five holes at a cost  of one hundred and twenty dollars, stiff  blue clay having been encountered. At  this rate the boring would cost ten thousand dollars, so the committee havo cpiit  work and -will take further advice.  Among those who spoke iu condemnation of the provincial government's  course was Helgeson, one of their supporters in the legislature.  ���    American University Eaces.  Po-'C'iiki.i.i-sii., N-. Y., June 20.���If the  delay had been made of the  occasion   it  could not havo been more favorable  for  the   four-oared  race   between  crews. of  Cornell university ancl the  university of  Pennyslvania, and the eight-oared freshmen    crews   of   Columbia,   Cornell  and  Pennsylvania which were scheduled to be  rowed at live and six  o'clock  p. m.,  respectively, both for two miles.     The Cornell crew drew lirst  choice  for   position  and was given the outside course nearest  the channel of the river, a course whieh  has distinctive ad vantages in an ebbtide.  Wisconsin got the  inside  course   which  has usually been so disastrous to Pennsylvania, and wliich   i.s  so   near the bank  that  there  i.s  sometimes  a  back  swell.  Pennsylvania got the course next to Wisconsin, and   Columbia   next  to  Cornell.  Coach McConville   took   his bad  luck in  getting the inside course quite philsophi-  cally, saying "Well, we will do our best  wherever we aro, and 1  hope  that there  is not" much difference.". The  drawings  + were followed by  a .discussion  over the  tide-and .tho  benefit  the  outside  crew-  would get if the race were "rowed at tlie,  hour set.    The eoininittee5 decided, so 'as  to avoid all controversy,  that the  races  should all be postponed for one hour, the  four oared taking place at 5  o'clock, the  freshmen   at   ~),  and   the varsity at  0  -. o'clock tomorrow.  A. live o'clock the referee ordered the  two fours to line up. At 5:10 p. m. they  ��� caught tho water a,t the pistol shot and  both crews started off pulling steady and  strong. At tho quarter mile Pennsylvania had gained .lightly but both crews  had their way strongly, j^t the half  Pennsylvania leads by a length, at tho  mile Pennsylvania leads by two lengths,  time S:25 3-5 at the mile and a half  Pennsylvania leads by two lengths, pulling .'-52 and Cornell 33. Nearing the finish  line both crews increased their stroke  slightly," and Cornell appeared to be gaining a trifle. Pennsylvania wins by two  lengths.    Time 32.08 _-��.

Osborne  of   San   Francisco,  Avho   arrived  today  from Dawson, claims to have  found rich  placer  grounds  on  the   head   waters of  McMillan river.    He says it's  a  terrible  country to get into.    A Villi   his partner  Smithson of Los Angeles he traveled up  the   river   four   hundred   miles.     They  cleaned up nearly $1000 before they wore  compelled   to  come  out  for   provisions.  Wliilo in there they met a  party of six  who left I5dmouton over a year ago and  wintered on the Peel river.   Their clothes  were in rags and thoy were almost skeletons.    Tliree  of   their  party  had   died.  The leader of their party, a  man   named  Jackson, from New Jersey,"said they had  been held up by Indians and robbed of a  good part  of- their  outfits.

The  court overruled tlie last objection and  tlie defense then asked foi' permission to  file an affidavit regarding deputy Angus  Sutherland, the court having signified its  intention to appoint hiin unless cause  Avas shown to prevent. The defence  then moved to quash the citations to tlie  comity coiniuissiooers, claiming that the  charges Avere criminal, and the statutes  required them to be preferred by indictment or presentment by grand jury, or  by information filed by the county attorney, whereas the present Charges came  from the attorney-general, avIio appeared  as a private citizen, also tliat the crime  should be charged from knowledge and  not simple information and belief.

Loxno.v, Julie��� 20.���The scheme of the  Saiiioan high comniissioiiei's for the  future government oi' the Islands  is severely Criticised in some quarters  here on the .ground' that it leaves  practically untouched the principle  of tripartite control, which AVas  responsible for the recent troubles, but satisfaction is expressed, of  course, that the native factions should  have given up their rifles and that Malietoa Tan us should haA'e resigned his disputed kingship.

OTIS REVIEWS THE SITUATION.  He Is Not Discouraged.  AVashington, June 20.���General Otis,  in reply to a cable from, the war department, asking  for information  regarding  the situation and conditions in   the Philippines, today cabled a reply as follows:  This   is   the   rainy  season  and there   is  .little inland campaigning in Luzon.    AA'o  now occupy a larger portion of the country, our lines stretching from Imus on the  south   to   San   Fernando,   on  the  north  nearly sixty miles, anil eastward into the  Lnguna province.     The insurgent armies  haA'e suffered great losses and are scattered.    The  only large forces together  comprise about four thousand in  Tarlae  proA'ince   and   in   northern   Pampanga.  Their scattered  forces are  in  bands- of  from fifty to five hundred.     In the other  portions   of   Luzon,  in  CaA'ite" and the  Batangas proA'iuces they could assembly  possibly 2000 men  though  they are demoralized from recent defeats.  The mass of the people have been terrorized by thelnsurgent soldiers and desire  peace and. American   protection/and no  longer flee on the approach of our troops.,  unless they are forced by the insurgents.  Tliere has been no recent burning of the  towns,  and   the  population  Avibhin  our  lines is becoming dense.    The people are  taking up land cultivation extensively.  The Only hope of the insurgent leaders  now is Uni bed States aid. They proclaim  the hear overthrow of the present administration, to be folloAved by their independence and recognition by the United  States. This is the influence Avhieh enables them to holdout. Much contention  prevails among them, and no civil government remains. Trade Avith ports not  i if our possession, the former source of  the insurgent reA'enue, i.s now interdicted, but as the people in these parts  are without supplies or food and merchants are suffering great losses, tliere is  a prospect of restoring trade pri vileges, although insurgents will reap benefits.  Courts are iioav in successful operation  under the direction of -able Filipinos.  Affairs in the other islands-are comparatively quiet,'aAvaitiug results in Luzon,  Sickness among the * troops has increased lately, due mostly to the arduous  service ancl climatic influences, but it is  nothing alarming. Of the IavcIvo per  cent of command repoited sick, nearly  six per cent are in the general hospital,  of av horn three, per cent haA'c typhoid,  seventeen per cent malarial lover and  twelve per cent intestinal troubles. Many  officers and men who served in Cuba  break under the recurrence of the Cuban  fever. The regular regiments lately received are inadequately officered.  THE TOWN AND THE DISTRICT  Clements Gets a Permit.  The license commissioners had another  session   yesterday   afternoon  Avhen   the  application of A. II. Clements for a saloon  license   was  again   discussed.      .John   A.  Turner was  not  present at the meeting  and the other two commissioners did not  in the first instance intend to take any  action.    It  was therefore decided to adjourn the meeting for two Aveeks.    R. S.  Lennie, who. appeared for the applicant,  then  proposed  that   the   commissioners  should grant the applicant a permit to  sell  liquor on  his  premises  in the Oddfellows' block duriug the Dominion Day  celebration.    He .said/that there  Avas  a  prbA'isioii in the statute for the granting  of  permits for  periods of 48 hours and  finder, and as the applicant had  gone to  considerable  expense", the commissioners  had it in their power to help him recoup  himself by the granting of a permit during  tlie  celebration.     This  request the  commissioners granted, and the solicitor  then followed it up with the request that  the board should also grant a license to  coA'er the interval between  the  present  and the next meeting of the board.   This  lie  said   would  enable  the applicant to  comply Avith all the requirements of the  board and  should  it  be. found  that he  could not do so the lieense could be cancelled at once.    This-, was. further  than  commissioner Mclvillop would, go, so the  matter for the present rests witli a permit to sell  liquor on Friday and Saturday.  Victims of the Edmonton Trail.  A'lCTOHiA, June 20.���The Yukon Sun of  June (5th, just receiA'ed, tells  the   following story of deaths  on  the  trail  to  the  gold fields: "John 3. Crowley,  agent of  the Ladeau Company at Dahl   river during the past Avinter, brings  information  of the death of three  men  from  starvation and cold, while attempting to make  the   head  AVaters  of  the  Ivoyukul.  last  winter.   The A'ietinis are  Michael  Daly,  Providence, Rhode Island, and J.

Some  two or throe Weeks after the main par by  returned and  reported their three companions   tis   lost.      Nothing  was  heard  from the missing nien until some time in  March, when.tile BreSler-party of Circle  City reported the finding of the remains  of the three bodies on the north   fork of  Bonanza,    near   the   head -./waters. ..of  Koyuktik.  In a tent was found the dead body  of J. Proilou, sitting bi** a snlall stove on  Will ell was a kettle. Pronon had been:  trying to boil the moosehicle throngs  from off his snOwshoos, The boy was  buried;, and about foul* miles below this  they found the fragments or Michael  Daly and Victor Letai-e, nearly devoured  by wolves. In some places oil the back-  trail the Bresler party found notes pinned  to trees by these unfortunates begging  their companions to hurry along because  they were starving, while they Avere  pushing through to Koyukuk Where they  hoped to find food and shelter. Ofthe  many stories, of hardship, suffering and  .death in the loAver river country, this i.s  the most shocking. It would be in connection Avith the loss of this party that  the tale of cannibalism, evidently fictitious, was put in circulation by recent arrivals from the north.  Professor Georgeson sent by the department of agriculture at AVashington  to report upon the aA*ai lability of Alaskan  territory contiguous to the Canadian  Yukon for farming operations has returned from the north. He is we'll satisfied with the outlook, believing that the  Vukon flats when properly treated will  prove equally adapted' to cereal productions as the flats of Minnesota- and the  steppes of Siberia, and-will yield ample-  win-ill to supply the contiguous districts  with flour. -   ���'��� '.,.

At present the issue seems to  be between the Canadians aiid Englishmen;' The former are the heavier. creAv,  averaging about 100 pounds, and they"  have been practising steadily. They  have made several long steady paddles to  Five Mile point, and On Sunday they  rowed over the course in A'ery creditable  style considering the distance previously  traversed.

CURUENT BATE'OK INTEREST PAID  VANCOUVER   HOGS   IN   THE   TKOUGH.  Vancouver, June 23.���An interview of  great political import was secured today  by the Colonist correspondent from one  of the opposition coinmiteo to whom  Messrs. Cotton ?ancl Martin -practically-  owe tlieir position, but tlie member interviewed stipulated tliat his name be not  mentioned. As this gentleman speaks,  however, as the mouthpiece of tlie committee which boasts representing four-  fifths of the electors of Vancouver, the  omission of his name is of little consequence, the personnel of the committee  being well known, as well as the fact that  it has engineered all of recent date.  The gentleman interviewed was first  asked if the people who placed the Vancouver members in power at Victoria,  and were responsible for the overthrow  .of the Turner government, were still satisfied .with tlieir creation. The interviewer said most emphatically:  "No, they are not; and whatever I tell  you the committee would tell you-���a,  committee Avhieh was organized by the  people of Vancouver practically to overthrow the Turner government, and.there-  fore a committee which voices the sentiments of Vancouver as a city. There was  a strong feeling here that the Turner  government was giving Vancouver the  worst of it right along, and consequently  we united to overthrow that government  and elect men who, placed in the cabinet,  would see that Vancouver would bctreat-  ' ed fairly.*- ���    ' *      -       "  "The result was up to expectations as  far. a? overthrowing'the-Turner goyern-  inent .was concerned, but'it is a case of  'out of the frying pan into the lire.'  The very lirst request made by Vancouver through tho instrumentality of this  conimittee was refused by the cabinet.    1  -refer to the request that a compromise  be made which would enable the much  desired mill to be built ou Deadman's  island. Mr. .Cotton deliberately opposed  it, going directly =against the wishes of  the people who elected him. Mr. Martin  stood up for the city and worked for the  establishment of tho mill, but his work  Avas very coarseand brought the government into discredit. Since then his actions have been such as to morally aud  politically kill him as a champion of the  city's interests.  "Mr. Martin having lost tlie confidence  and respect of his constituents, and Mr.  Cotton having ignored tlie city's best interests, while 31 r. Semlin is not sufficiently  strong willed   to cut auy  figure, the  great majority of citizens of Vancouver  _would  wclcomo_a_jc_liauge_of_auy__kind  Is now prepared io issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Skaguay, U. S., Atlin;, B. C, and  Dawson City, YuKun. District.  Action must be taken promptly, and Vancouver will be found ready to unite with  'Victoria in reorganizing the government.  I firmly believe these are the sentiments  of the people of Vancouver. They are of  the committee whom they have chosen as  tlieir counsellors.  whieh would give them decent represent  tetipn at Victoria. I aili not iii the  slightest exaggetfi-tihg this feeling. Mr.  Cottonwill not resign.;-that ha,, been as-  cei'feuii-d. Therefore there is no use  figuring on sucli a possibility. Mr. Seiii-  Jiji might be iuduced to l-esign, but this  would; not help lilattefs Unless a moderate inau of Very strongpersonality could  take liis iplace, aild there is no man in  the govet'iuiieut ranks who answers that  description. Thou it looks as if the only  thing left to do is to force Mr. 3Iartin,  for numerous I'easons, to vacate his sea.  ill the cabinet, and also l-ecjuest Mr.  If nine to i-esigii. Mr. Iiilitie is very tired  of it all, and is worried almost to .death  with the cares of offii ce, '.lid Would readily  retire.  "Then form a coalition government by  putting in the places of these men two  able experienced politicians now gracing  the opposition benches. It would be  premature to mention the names suggested. With Mr. Cotton as premier, a man  who has shown that he has determined to  serve the province' as he thinks best for  the province,'up..matter if his constituency suffers, -Victoria and Vancouver  might both be content. Mr. 3IcKechnie's  tendency towards 3_artiuisiri -would be  checked by such a combination and being  otherwise an able man, he niight be left  in the cabinet. Mr.-Seiul.u- could be retained, or if lie wished to retire, another  stronger government man could be put in  his place.  "Witli such a cabinet Vancouver would  be much better pleased than at present,  and as far as tlie committee is concerned,  the Colonist's comments on the suggestion will be watched with.the keenest interest; in fact, what the .Colonest says  now,''at "the turn" of.the tide, may pilot  the province out of political darkness into tlie  liglit.     The  signs are   ominous.

Tlie   Michigan  lumbermen,  tried for several, niou-lis during the early  spring to secure the disallowance  of the  ProA'ineial Act by the Dominion  authorities.    In   this  they Avere   unsuccessful.  They   next  sought   to    secure  help   at  Washington from the  treasury officials,  who were asked to declare that the  prohibition of the export  of logs from  the  croAvii lands of Ontario  Avas a measure  warranting'the increase of the  duty on  Canadian lumber under the Dingley law,  Avhieh provided for a duty of $2 on lumber and for the doubling of the duty in  the event of Canada placing an  export  duty ou logs.    The under officials  ofthe  United States treasury  seemed  disposed  to agree to the vieAV, but secretary Gage  decided that the Avhole  question  should  remain   in   abeyance,    pending   further  negotiations.  Messrs. J. H. Scott, Q. C, aud Christopher Robiusou, Q. C, haA'e uoav been instructed by an Anieri-���*_n lumberman  to endeavor if possible to obtain a test  case in tho courts to settle definitely the  legality of the act of the legislature prohibiting tho export of logs. It is understood that they have applied formally to  the attorney-general for his assent to  take sucli proceedings, and that Avhile  the attorney-general declines to submit  questions to the court a.s to the A-alidity  of the act he informed them he avouIcI  grant a fiat for a petition of right in the  ordinary course of litigation.  Under the course of procedure adopted  .it ,is expected that the case Avill be  pushedthrough the Ontario courts in'the  fall, and -will reach the Imperial privy  council early in the Avinter. The decision  of the attorney-general simply means  that the croAvn, Avhieh cannot be sued  Avithout its consent, permits the suit to  bo entered so tliat it may not hereafter  bo contended that that the lumbermen  affected had no opportunity of establishing their contentions before the courts.  The province Avill, of course, defend the  act of the legislature "with vigor.  at least a temporary cure was effected.  Whether this treatment can be generally  applied remains to be cetermiiied.  Line Must Be All Canadian.  Ottaava, .Tune 20.���Premier Laurier  has made the announcement that the  government Avill pursue the same policy  with respect to. telegraph lines in the  Klondyke as it has inaugurated with res-  poet to raihvays. The plan of the government, as outlined by sir Wilfrid, is  that the telegraph line shall run from  Bennett to Atlin, and thence southerly to  Quesnelle, B. C, where connection "will bo  made Avith the old government telegraph line. The government has decided  that no other companies sliall be allowed  to compete with the all-Canadian line, so  that the federal authorities will have  complete control of the means of communication. Hon. James Roche, 31.

This gentleman  as au argument against the passage of  the bill against usury, stated tluCt it was  the practice of large traders at the end of  their resources to tide over temporary  demands by borrowing a few thousand  dollars from private bankers at the rate  of a hundred per cent for a few days.  -By-sonie-sbraiige-inoral-twist-the-Liwyet'-  figured out that a perfectly legitimato  and woi'thy transaction would be frustrated, by tho usury bilj, jind a iiardsliip  inilieted iipoii the trading community.  As a matter of fact the boot is on the  other leg. The practice which he cites  against the proposed enactment is one  which cannot be too strongly discour-  ' agei., inasmuch its ifc enables merchants  Who hav'O no loijgei1 any right to carry on  business to enlnesll thelnselves still deeper and with iloicreasud hope of being able  to GinHirge from financial deeps. A  tradesman who borrows $5000 for a few  days at the rate of one hiuidred per cent  is evidently iu the. desperato straits of a  drowning inalt who clutchos at a straw  and With as little prospect of obtaining  help. I-ie should uot be allowed to fur-  jeopi-i'd'jzo his assets and decrease the  chances of his general creditors. Some  ciises of course there may be when such a  loan may enable a man to turn a windy  corner and firmly establish himself, but  in the majority of instances ifc indicates  that the borrower is making his last dying useless struggle. Hence a service  would be rendered to the community at  large by parliamentary interference.  Cure for Appendicitis.  The oil cure for appendicitis lias been  referred to. Recently the New York  Press contained a report of another cure  for the same serious malady peformed  upon a young lady of good family in Harlem. This was affected by Dr. George J.  Ilelmer, according to the principles of  osteopathy. Briefly, according.to the report, there was created by sudden manipulation a spasmodic contraction of tlie  psoas magnus, a largo muscle lying near  tlie appendix, by which the foreign substance which clogs'the appendix is forced  out of it and the patient i.s immediately  iclieved     Ju the case under consideration  Nelson Saw.& Planing Mills,  One of,the best and most popular hotels in Nelson.

Editor Simpson of the Cranbrook  Herald was in Nelson on Sunday. JIe  reports that his town will have a celebration on Domiuion��Day tliat will eelipso*  any tiling eArer seen in that line in East  Kootenay.  c The Dominion.

David  McBeath and Lawrence Peters will furnish the teams and wagon for the float  that will have for its load forty of the  prettiest little girls in Nelson whom Miss  Dclmage has selected to represent Canada  in the trades procession.  There will be about a do/,en outside  horses to compete for the purses hung up  for the races during the celebration. Four  will be brought up from Myers Falls,  Washington; two from Port Hill, Idaho;  two from Fort Macleod, ..Alberta; two  from Windermere and two from Tobacco  Plains.  ltossland has two race horses. One is  owned by Claude Cregan, agent of the  'Hamilton PoAvder Company, the other by  a M r. Leckie, .who. is said to be amine  manager. The latter is in tiie Boundary  Creek country, and insists that his horse  shall  be taken   there.    The  two horses  have but one trainer and rider, therefore  where the one goes the other lias to go.  This i.s tlie reason Mr. Cregan gives for  not bringing his horse to Nelson, where  he admits he was treated squarely last  year, but it is not the reason given by  the iro.-slnnd papers.  The water rose 5 J, inches during the  twenty-four lioursending yesterday at (J  p. m.  The members ol' the Western Press Association's excursion will reach Nelson  this evening.
