 SHAMROCK DEFEATS BRITANNIA  In a Good Racing Breeze.  Southampton, July 18.��� There was  much excitement in the Solent today  over the Britannia-Shamrock race. From  early morning crowds watched the preparations on board both yachts while the  whole fleet from Southampton. Cowes  and other points made for Hyde. Long  before the start crowds of fashionable  visitors arrived. The Shamrock was  towed from Southampton, the Erin following with sir Thomas Lipton, and a  distinguished company. Tho prince of  Wales arrived at Southampton at eleven  o'clock, wearing a yachting suit, and immediately embarked ou board the admiralty yacht Fire Queen. The yachts  started punctually at twelve o'clock,  with a. fresh southwest breeze blowing.  As   the   starting     gun    boomed,   the  Hritannin almost immediately crossed the  line,    the    Shamrock    following.      Tlie  Britannia did not long main lain   the advantage.    It was a  dead   beat   to   windward, 'and  little  distance  was  covered  before the Shamrock,  which  started oii  the short leg to port had overhauled her,  and on the  following  long  leg  to  starboard,    the    Shamrock    forged    ahead  rapidly.    It'was at once noticed that she  wassailing nearly  half a  point  nearer  the wind than the Britannia.  The Shamrock was carrying her mainsail jib-headed  topsail and jib foresail.    The Britannia  carried     the     same     canvas      but    in  addition       had       her       club      topsail.  The  Shamrock  was  half a  mile  ahead  when passing Warner.    Hogarth was. at  the  helm  of  the challenger.    The  boat  held up admirably, and there  was not a  drop of water on her deck.    She  proved  extremely quick in  putting  about, only  taking  10i  seconds.    Ou   rounding   the  ISTab lightship both yachts set their spinnakers for the run back.    Tlie  only mishap of the day was that when the Shamrock's sail began to /ill the top caught in  the crosstrees.    The huge canvas flopped  flat and then suddenly burst  like  a balloon, and a big rent became visible iu the  upper part where a long  strip c.had been  torn out.    The Shamrock's speed  naturally  suffered  somewhat from this  accident.    Both boats soon set their topsails,  and when tliey jibed to port, near Ryde  they were traveling at such  a  rate that  the press  boat,  going at a speed  of  11  knots, was unable to keep pace with the  Shamrock,  though  the  wind  had lightened considerably.  The Britannia appeared to be holding  ire.fel-e;d4^  UTl��  WEDNESDAY MORNING, JULY ]��,   189...  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.

The  Shamrock is decidedly the fastest boat  ever launched in these waters. No other  craft over gave the Britannia such a  be i ting on a fair sailing trial.  There was considerable inniio'iivringof  tlie ync.iits before the start, and the opinion was freely expressed that the Shamrock did not appear to be so well handled as the Britannia, wliich was in the  hands of the veteran Carter, who skippered her sii-.-ccssfully against the Vigilant in I SOI. Tlie Britannia was sailed  beautifully and excited general admiration among the immense crowds of fashionable persons who witnessed the return  of the boats.  CIVILIZING  OF   THE   FILIPINOS  Good Progress Made.  -Washington, July IS.���The state department yesterday received from the  Philippine commission-an important dispatch conveying the news that by the  co-operation of the military with the  commission, municipal governments have  been established in several important  towns in the provinces of Manila and  Gavite. These are Avorking admirably,  and one good effect of them is that considerable numbers of insurgents are constantly deserting and. coming in, and  some of them with arms. The system  will soon be extended to other towns  Avhieh are asking for it. Continued success in this direction "will mark the beginning of tlie end.  Dispatches from Dr. Schurmer on his  return from his trip through the southern  part of the islands were of the same purport. A disposition to accept American  sovereignty and to welcome the United  States troops "was everywhere manifested.  The report of general Otis of June 26th,  referred to by commissioner Denby in  the above dispatch stated that as a con-  sequeue'e of the rainy season little island  campaigning was now possible in  Luzon.  ^p^efe^  I "folxiiftsiol&i l^tli^fni^h^kpi^'^^^^^  '��� "*dti%hd ifxe. li r<_odii^i Si"|b-:|)ie����slejj51 buoy*.-  ���CiU &oy -ikihg" aroundthey.fcettelietl "back".  ,-; fiuJ4)ting, -./itlX^^shorti; tsrt,ek Jo; imtke. $hP2(  ���" iwhie jjiarli" ��� "l-Sxp^ ,  ���tlie^hain;i;0cfc >^Wl.be,ii>J-e'toj give tt/good  .. iltccouilfeof herself iii tile contest "for ���tjlre".

Jt was tlie opinion of those closely  watehing the race on the steamer, following the yachts that the Sfli.amrit._k was  ^uever-jrushed^to���her^titn-iost^in^today's'  trial, and that Mr. Fife, the designer of  the yacht, who practically entered the  contest oil behalf of sir Thomas Lipton  merely desired to ascertain whether the  Shamrock could show the Britannia 'a  clean pair of heels. He had no desire,  however, to let everyone into the secret  of tlie actual speed of tlie challenge-. A  confirmation of the foregoing opinion is  found in tlie fact tliat while tlie Britannia carried every possible stitch of  GapA-as, the Shamrock was running before the wind from Nab lightship to the  Solent bank buoy, and only had her jib  headed with the topsail instead of the  club-topsail like the Britannia, and on  the broad reach home from Solent buoy,  the Shamrock lowered her big topsail  whieh woiilcl have been of material  assistance had her skippers really wished  to show her at her best. Mr. Fife and  'Mr. James were on board the Shamrock  but sir Thomas Lipton followed ou the  boat the Erin, which with a lew yacht-  and one solitary, but crowded, excursion  steamer, escorted the racers round the  course.  The fresh breeze that was blowing at  the start fell somewhat, but revived  sufficiently to bring the racers home at a  good pace, and proved an excellent wind  from a racing point of view, as it enabled  tlie cracks to be tested as to their points,  namely, beating to windward, running  and reaching. The Shamrock showed to  best advantage in beating to windward,  and gained six. minutes on Britannia in  the eight miles beat to the Nab lightship  from the start, although beating is considered one of the Britannia's strong  points. Ou the run back to Cowes the  Shamrock's gain was less perceptible,  considering the distance���about fifteen  miles ���but the 'Shamrock did, not set her  club topsail, and so did.not do her best..  Oh. the  reach   home, the  Shamrock  did ,  THE TOWNS ANEMTHE DISTRICT  Pushing the Road.  The contractors of the Kaslo and Lardo-  Duncan railway are by no means allowing the grass to grow under their feet as  far as construction is concerned. G. A.  Carlson who has the contract for building the first lo miles of the road is getting in additional supplies Avith a view  to increasing the force of men employed  by r.00. He has three construction  camps, a big one near Argenta, a smaller  oue about half way between Argenta and  Duncan City, and a third at Duncan City.  The right of way has been slashed from  Argenta to the outlet of Howser lake  Avhere the railway bridge will cross Duncan river. Both lines pass through*,  Duncan City, and the Kaslo and .Lardo-  Duncan road have their right of way  graded through the townsite. A survey  party is now out ou the east side of Howser lake locating a line through the  upper Duncan.  KASLO.  E. Stephenson and Neil McKay, license  commissioners for the Ainsworth licensing district, met at Kaslo at 8 o'clock ou  Tuesday evening for the purpose of considering applications for liquor licenses.  There were three successful applicants,  Chain e & Stubbs of Duncan City, W. H.  Bell of Argenta aud Swan Peterson of  Argenta. The applications of H. A. Macdonald of Lardeau and Alex. Cummings  of Duncan City Avere laid over until they  had erected buildings satisfactory to the  inspector.  Kaslo has a firm of city solicitors, but  it has been obliged to send outside the  city for legal services. This difficulty  came up in the proceedings against  Messrs. Dedorif and AVheltarns, who are  charged Avith being mixed up in the escape of a prisoner from the city lockup.

FICHTINGTHE FIRE LIMITS BYLAW  In the Police Court.    .  The Avhole of yesterday morning Avas  taken nji in the hearing of the evidence  ��� in the case of the prosecution of E. C.  Traves for violating the fire limits bylaw.  At two o'clock S. S. Taylor rose to speak  for the defence, and his argument lasted  all the afternoon. He made a strong attack on the A-alidity of the bylaw, adducing numerous arguments tending to  show that the bylaAV aviisi ultra Arires in  essential particulars. He objected first  that the bylaw in question was not under  the seal of the corjjoration nor was it  signed by the mayor and city clerk as  jjrovided by the municij.al act. He also  objected to the bylaAv on the ground  that the clause recently inserted  jiermitting buildings to be temjiorarily  moved from one portion of the fire limits  to another constituted fresh legislation,  and the bylaAV as amended should have  been read three times and reconsidered.  This Avas not done, and. consequently, he  contended, the byhvw Avas null and void.  ���He further argued that the city had no  power to constitute lire limits at nil, as  such jioAvers could not be inferred from  general Avords in the charter. He considered the bylaw ultra A-ires because it delegated jJOAvers to the fire chief that had not  "eo^^'#^^%fMfipjf^  ;- j eetecf .id Jjie :ela'use ebwf e|a'ingyd,i��^c.r-etiO-ii---*"  ,ai!*y"*ife]inf*s, As to-"per*mrfi��..5& ^idd;it|:onfe''450;  hp-. bilil.t -on ,>\*^%len ' ��� �� ^i*uild%g;C  and " "alsO- to. the- elaugfe" vvhfc"ii'  , ip'rhiitteci-Pi BuVas.i.

"Onaisy, sis Hogan says, is th' head
that wears a ci-oavii. They'se other heads
that're onaisy, too ; but ye don't hear in
thim. But a ln.ui gi--rows up in wan iv
thim fun-in' counthries, sin' he's thi-ained
I'r to be 11 kiug. Hivin may've intinded
him fr a dooce or a jack, sit th' most;
but he lias to follow th' same line as his
father. 'Tis like pawnbrokin' that Avay.
Ye niver heerd iv a paAvnbroker's son
doin' anythin' else. Wausb a king, al-
AVays a king. Other men's sons may pack
away a shirt in a thrunk, an' go out into
th' Avurruld, brakin' on a freight or ladin'
Indvtinny bankers up to a shell game.
But a man that's fr a throne can't r-ruu
aAvay. He's got to take th' job. If he
kicks, they blindfold him an' back him in.
He can't ask fr his time at th' end iv th'
AA'eek, au''. hive. He pays himsilf. He
can't sthrike, because he'd .have to
oi'dlier out tli' polis to subjoo himsilf. He
can't go to th' boss, an' say : 'Me hours

Give me'iiie pay-check,' He has no boss.

The firm of railway contractors travelling   under the  aristocratic,  title of  Bill
ami   Dan do  not  seem to  be   nearly as
thankful for their escape from the Yukon
railway   bargain as   friends  of  Clifford
Sifton, its deceiver,   would have the public believe.    Almost before the remains of
the Yukon   railway bill had   received decent burial   jidniirers of the Able Young
Minister proceeded to let the people know
how  delighted were  William Mackenzie
and    Dan  Mann    that  the bargain   into
which they Avere inveighed through the
statesmanlike  cunning of Clifford Sifton
had  been  smashed.    That  pair of innocent contractors Avere reported to be simply bubbling  over with joy that the bill
lay in   countless pieces  at the feet of sir
Mackenzie  BoAvell.    And  such has been
the cry since that fateful day iu the Canadian senate.    It might be supposed that
if William Mackenzie and Dan Maun rejoiced  in their  release from  the  Yukon
raihvay  bargain they would have taken
thi-OAArs   with'   their   hats   at   the   blue
heiwens  that look  do.A'n on  parliament
square and jubilated generally according
to   regular form.    Also it AArould not be
too  much, to expect that Bill and Dan
would' shun the haunts of honorable Clifford  Sifton,   the   man  avIio   giA'es  gold
bricks  to ciedulous  contractors  for his
country's  sake Avithout a shadow  of remorse.    But Bill   and   Dan   have   kept
close to the ground that came dangerously near  being the scene of tlieir destruction.    They sIioav no sign of fear of Clifford  Sifton, they ..-have, strange A\rays of
Character Not Good.
In some rural districts of England
there are held annually hiring fairs,
Avhere the farmers and others attend to
engage servants. Atone held in Gloucestershire hist autumn a farmei' opened negotiations with a lad who seemed suitable for his purpose.- Various questions
have been 'asked and answered, the fanner inquired at last:
"Hast got a character from thy last
"No," replied the boy; "but my old
gaffer be about somewhere, and I can get
lie to write I one."
"Very  AArell," Avas the reply, "thee get
it and meet I here again at 4 o'clock."
'•' The tiine  came, so did the farmer and
the boy.
"Hast got thy character ?" Avas the
query. The ansAver came short and
"No; but I ha' got thine, and I bean't
a-coming."     '
The Shamrock's Lines Described.
London, July IS.—The Daily Mail,
Avhieh gives Avhat it calls the secret of the
Shamrock's construction, hitherto carefully guarded to prevent it being used
by America, says : "The Shamrock is designed Avith SAvauline lines, rounded in
such a Avay as hardly to cause a ripple in
her   AArake.    She  displaces  the   smallest
possible amount of AArater. Her keel is
shaped almost like a thick letter T, so
that she can turn as if on a pivot.
It is claimed tluit she is two seconds
faster than the Columbia in the stays.
Those in charge of the- Shamrock doubt
whether the Columbia has proved her
superiority to the Defender and considered it quite on the cards that the Shamrock would have met the latter. Sir
Thomas Lipton will leave for the United
Slates on August 20th.
