 HE FOUND WHAT HE WAS TOLD  Fairbanks Reports on  Alaska.  Chicago, July 20.���A Tribune special  from Washington says: "Senator Fairbanks of the joint high commission, had  a conference with president McKinley  and .secretary Hay at the White House  on the Alaskan boundary dispute. The  senator reports that from personal observation lie is (irmly convinced that fclie  contentions made by this government are  correct, and0 if the modus vivendi is  agreed upon it must be upon the terms  ofthe United States. Senator Fairbanks  has been all over the country in the vicinity of Kink wan, Dyea, Skagway and  the territory in dispute, and linds incontrovertible evidence that tlie contentions  ot* this government are correct.  It was said that this governmunfc will  not yield a foot of territory, and thatun-  less the British government agrees upon  a modus vivendi on the lei-ms which this  government' offered there will be no  meeting of the joint high commission on  August 2nd.  While senator Fairbanks declined to  discuss the subject of the position occupied by the Canadian police, because he  may again be called upon to deal with  the Alaskan question, it was learned  that members of this force are now, in the  Porcupine region, which unquestionably  belongs to this government.  The orders whieli were given some  time ago for sending American troops to  Pyramid Harbor have not been" recinded,  but are still held in abeyance at the request of the British government. In view  of the latest information furnished the  state department at this point, it would  be surprising if the British government is  not notified that American troops Avould  be sent to Pyramid Harbor whether  Great Britain objects or not. The government is determined to protect the interests of American citizens no matter  what the position of the British goA'ern-  ment may be.  News Notes From Honolulu.

EXPERT YACHTSMAN'S OPINION  On Shamrock's Qualities.  S0UTHA-.11TOX, July 20.���It i.s reported  that the New York yacht club has consented to the Shamrock being towed by  the Erin in tlio event of being becalmed  in crossing the Atlantic. Two strong  hawsers are being made for use in this  eventuality. ��� The Shamrock is a mere  shell and quite empty below her deck.  When the prince of Wales boarded her  and went below he found himself in a  vessel destitute even of ordinary partitions,'and looking from end to end he  said in a surprised Avay, "Why, she is like  a street, perfectly empty."  The correspondent of the Associated  Press had an interview today with captain Carter avIio besides sailing the  Britannia, commanded the Genesta when  she sailed in American Avaters. When  told that sir Thomas Lipton could have  won by half an hour yesterday, captain  Carter replied:  "Yes, I believe she could. She is a  splendid boat*. With regard to the criticism that she did not sail as well as might  have been expected before the wind, it  must be remembered that she only carried her topsail.' Nobody would be more  pleased than myself to see the Shamrock  Avin as Avell as she did on both days this  week, and the prince of Wales Avould be  well pleased. He undoubtedly avus delighted to have the Shamrock prove suck  a flyer, as Ave want to capture the America cup if we can. Without the slightest  doubt the Shamrock is magnificent in  beating fco the Avindward.  - Anglo-American Athletics.

BiiiM-iN, July 20.���The celebrated economist, D'ft Ivuliland, has, in the agrarian  Deutsche Tagesfceitung this morning, his  second article scoring "the seven great  American packing firms, which by their  Ioav prices have monopolized tlie meat  market of the United States and dictate  to the American farmer." Now, he declares, the same seA'en are trying to get  control of the European market and to  dominate the  continental agriculturists.  Presumably following in their tone the  drift of the Anglo-German agreement,  the Berlin papers are slowly changing  their attitude on the TransA'aal question.  The National Zeitung this morning says  that Avhile Great Britain's policies in  Egypt and South Africa may be attacked  from the point of A'ieAV of ethics, yet one  is forced to admire the nation's resoluteness and force of Avill iu executing its intentions.

KOOTENAY MINES AND SMELTERS  Collecting the Paris Exhibit.  F. M. Chad bourn is  making  good progress Avith the collection of the  exhibit  to be sent from this and the Goat  River  mining divisions to fche Paris exhibition.  The  Hall  Mines  haA'e  furnished a very  handsome exhibit of about   1500   pounds  representative of  the different classes of  ores found on their properties.    Capcain  Duncan   has   engaged    to   forward   him  samples from their mines on Eagle creek,  and an exhibit is expected daily from the  Athabasca.    While in  Ymir recently Mr.  Cliadbonrne   arranged   for   the   exhibit  from that district, and about 300 pounds  of specimens are   now   at  the Nelson &  Fort Sheppard  depot,  and more are expected.

The engineer of the gas and coke company filed with fche city clerk yesterday  a plan shoAving the streets upon whieli  the company desires permission to lay its  gas mains. The plan shows the site of  the works as a liloek of land hounded  by Silica,.-Slocan, Victoria and Hail way  streets. From this site a pipe line is to  be laid on Railway street to Haker, along  Baker to Cedar, down Cedar to Water  street, and along Water street to the  eastern limits of the city. A circuit is  also made of block one. the pipes running  from Baker to Vernon in Ward, along  Vernon to JosexDhine and up Josephine to  Baker. Another line runs up Stanley  street from Baker to Observatory, AA'ith  lateral lines of pipe for A'arying distances  oii each of the intersecting streets.  Coupled Avith this plan the gas  company asked-for-permission to commence ou Monday the laying of pipe on  Stanley street from Victoria to Silica  street; on Victoria street from Stanley  fco Josephine street; and on Silica street  from Stanley to Hall street.  When the communication came before  the members of the council yesterday an  informal discussion Avas indulged in as to  Avhether the company should be allowed  to lay its pipe on the main streets of the  city or be covi**polled to lay them in fclie  alleyways. Although no action was  taken, the general feeling of the members of the council appeared to.be tliat  the company should not be allowed in  any event to lay their pipes on cither  Bilker or Vernon streets.

Police magistrate Crease delivered  judgment yesterday in the prosecution  brought by the city against E. C. Traves  for a breach of the fire limits bylaw in  connection Avith the erection of the addition to the Broken Hill block on Ward  street. The police magistrate upheld the  validity of the bylaw and imposed a fine  of $100 upon the defendant for his breach  of it.  S. S. Taylor, Q. C, made a vigorous  fight for the defendant, aud inunediately  issued a writ, for au appeal which will  probably be heard early iu September.  In the meantime he will make application before judge Forin foi- an interim  injunction restraining the 'corporation of  the city from proceeding with the demolition of the building, as threatened in a  notice to the defendant Traves. The application for this injunction will-be heard"  by judge Forin this morning. Should, it  be granted matters will probably remain  as they are, but otherwise the building  Avill be torn down when the clock strikes  tAvelve this evening.  The   judgment   of   police   magistrate  Crease Avas as follows:  The municipality of the city of Nelson  has lately gone to considerable trouble  and expense in hii/ving its bylaws revised  and consolidated, and this has been effected by the aid of experienced counsel.  To declare revised bylaw No. 7 invalid, a  clear case must be made out. E. C.  Traves, accordiug to the eA'idence, has  erected a structure ou lot 7, block 9, in  the city of Nelson, said lot being part of  subdivision of lot flu, group 1, Kootenay  district, wliich structure adjoins the  Broken Hill block, erected on said lot  7, and fronts on Ward street, a principal  street in the said eity. On the 14th inst.  the Avails were up and the roof on. It is  a framed one and roofed 'with tin; its  outside covering is rustic; its size is 10  feet by 40 feet and 35 feet high from  the ground sill. This I consider to be a .  building and an addition to the Broken'  Hill block, a frame building iioav in existence.  No authority in Avri.fcing Avas obtained  by Mr. TraA'es from the fire Avardens and  building inspector for the additions to  and alterations in the way of repairs or  otherwise of the Broken Hill block. The J  two crucial sections of the by laAV are 18  and 20, Avliich are (18). No . Avooden  building shall be erected within tlie' fire, -  ,ftAi5teiie|,;Sii��h;  'sSfey%i|li tif"ilf A%W ?'fl��pl* :'��^  "~�� !-"-,'-K::^^"~',^#plf^5S_^"s  'tio-ii.^ha-|l*^rcv(|h-g|fr.u^  -.d-rpfc-Ai'li-life^^  Lot. 7- ,%nd*, :the^"bti"^  , ^cend^j^^jrfdtoiiri^^^  .djjstineti'on waf.- soviglit.��"tjt>'"'"I_e"dBv^iSiii^^  tliQ jn<gtn"iient"b;ctWGU, jvoodjS.y .i"yd^i'I^if^��l(_i  "bididlngfe wmii^i^^iB^i^ti^^O  Syitonymoitsa. t<Jfc,m&.'iii tfi-ei":-!snu1j4i,i^'tey4ife5"'^:'  and l I'ogafd .%\jbm��� -Im ���"S-i^lCZ*SS,r-^^^","^  laid in ar^mueut" tfia!t".'thjl< eil^:;iial3".^-o*��>;-j  po-wer to de0Ue "f|i.e llui|t_?.

Greenwich, Connecticut, July 7.—Because a girl refused  to be  dared   a  riot
was narrowly averted at Shippan  Point,
near here,  on   the fourth.    Miss  Muriel
Russell,  an English girl, a  guest of  her
uncle,  Robert A.  Fosdick, was  dared to
run   up the British  colors from  the flagstaff in front of her  uncle's house on the
fourth of July.    She did not wait for the
dawn of  Independence  Day,  but   flung
the   colors   to   the  breeze   on  Monday.
That niglit flag and pole disappeared.
Miss  Russell  made anotlier  Hag,  and,
nothing  daunted, displayed   it from  an
upper  window.    Tliere  it waved- triumphantly until  sundown, while  neighbors
raged, |and one 'oven went  so far °as  to
display a revolver while talking with Mr.
Fosdick. .........

To test the matter the same company
was invited to dine again a day or two
later, and this time the table was decorated with cut flowers laid Hat. The room
recovered its acoustic properties, and the
conversation and laughter were as lively
as could be desired.

Who would ever have thought that
the way of arranging flowers on a dinner
tahle could influence tlie gayety of tlie ;
gu(.sts? A i'-V days ago M. and Mine.
X-—— gave a little dinner tit .vhitsh there
were eighteen people, accjuainted, in syni-
pathy with one another, and several of
them of a very lively disposition. To
the surprise of all conversation flagged.
It was a series of asides without echo.
The master of the house, haunted by the
perpetual smile of his wife, whose lips he
could see move, though lie could not hear
the slightest sound of her voice, wondered what friend's she Could be pulling to
Tlie company had scarcely retired to
the drawing room when gayety broke
out and the- contrast was immediate and
striking. A young doctor, versed in the
study of the nerves, was being accused of
having hypnotised all the guests when a
well known professor of the Conservatoire exclaimed: "I think I have found it
out..   It is the fault of the flowers."
"Yes," replied a youug lady, "it's the

Quite an astounding number of animal
occurences are made the subject of wagering. Years ago, before the vagaries of
the weather had brought the four seasons into discredit, wagering that snow
would be found on the ground on Christmas morning was very popular. Even
now, when the weather behaves with a
sublime indifference to the time of year,
wagers are still made as to its raining
forty days if St. Swithin's be wet.
One enthusiastic supporter of this
hoary legend a few yeai'S since wagered
all he possessed on one wet anniversary
that tliere would be rain every day during the prescribed period. It did rain
twenty-two days, but the twenty-third
ruined him.
A well-known bookmaker who lays
himself out for what he calls "fancy wagering" has stated that the amount of
money which was wagered on the late
Righ°t Hon. W. E. Gladstone reaching the
age of ninety was simply enormous. He
also says that being a believer iu the unexpected happening in politics, he accepted at the time of the Home Rule split in
the Liberal party three Avagers of £3000
to £1000 each ...that. Mr.'Chamberlain
would one day be prime minister of England.    The stakes are deposited..!!! a bank

of Toronto, who went to Henley to eoni-

They failed to capture any of the prizes ;

that even in their defeat they showed
themselves to be oarsmen not unworthy

Pawned His Legs.
"Your honor, this man pawned his legs
to buy liquor," said an officer in magistrate Foster's court in Chicago the other
morning. Every one present craned forward to catch a sight of the prisoner
charged with the unusual offense.
"What man? Where?" demanded the
magistrate. And a couple of policemen
satisfied his curiosity by holding up PI.
W. Harrington for inspection. The prisoner was without both lower limbs. The
officers explained that he was found on
Clark street the night before in a hopeless state of intoxication and unable to
propel himself. After being locked up
he told the officers that he had pawned
his cork legs. The magistrate dismissed
the prisoner and instructed the police to
assist him in the recovery of his artificial
limbs.   .
Had Clothes to Spare.
Washington, July 20.—Investigation
of the complaint that the Oregon troops
were not properly clothed brings out the
fact that the quartermaster of that regiment turned into the quartermaster at
San Francisco a considerable amount of
clothing, including more than 700 greatcoats, a number of blankets and heaA'y
underclothing. This clothing when received by the United States is not
charged to the regiment and is accepted
if it has not been used.

The German commissioner, the despatch
adds, accedeil to the demand of United

natives, according to the Gazette's despatch, is stronger than ever. It is added

The  visit to the city of land coinniissiouer  Hamilton puts an altogether dilfereiit  lace upon the matter so far as the present  recreation grounds are concerned, in that  he says that there was no agreement on  tlie part of the railway company to��give  tlie land in question. He then offered a  new proposition which was that the railway company should place a value upon^  the present, recreation grounds and allow  the city to take acreage up to this full  valuation from the railway company's  land to the southwest of Nelson. No  definite arrangement was come to iu the  matter, but the probabilities are that  this olTer of land commissioner Hamilton.  i.s the best which the raihvay will make.  /  Summer  Suits  \  /  Just a few left of these nice crash suits  Just the thing for this hot weather  Come and get fitted out and do not suffer  with the heat  We also have a nice line of crash hats which  we are selling at very low prices  J.
