 EXCITING REGATTA AT BOSTON  Canadians Show Un Well.  Boston, July 2S.���Witli iew exceptions  every one of the first day's races iu the  big regatta of the National Association  of Amateur Oarsmen held on the Charles  river today proved interesting and exciting. The senior four-oared race, which  was won by Pennsylvania easily leading  in respect to close finishes. Tlie first  heats in both the intermediate sculls and  the association singles Avere not far behind in tho way of furnishing excitement, O'Keefe of Springfield winning the  former and John l.lumohr of Rat Portage, Ontario, taking tlie latter. If the  two-mile pull of the intermediate eights  had been allowed jis a nice, that too  would have, been recorded as a contest  full of excitement. Better weather and  ; racing could scarcely have been desired  and a crowd of 8000 on the river bank all  enjoyed the races immensely. The Charles  river was sis placid tis a typical mill pond.  The course was the usual mile and a half  Avith a turn.  The great senior four-oared  shell  race  Avas easily the feature of tlie afternoon,  -and it Avill be a long time before a better  aquatic   contest   will   be   seen.      Three  crews  were  entered  for   the   race,  the  Pennsylvania   Barge  Club  of   Philadelphia,   the   Brockville  Rowing   Club   of  Brockville,'��� Ontario,'and   the   Western  RoAving Club of St. Louis, but the latter  crew Avas  left   behind   from   the   A'ery  start.    Pennsylvania and Brockville were  evenly matched, but the former had a  stroke in unity that practically avou for  them the race.    The Canadians  had the  best of the start, and Avith  perfect finish  and stroke and an easy swing  seemed to  have  little difficulty in  maintaining'--'a  lead  to  the  turn.  'Pennsylvania,   Iioav-  ever, Avas not a length  behind wlien the  mark Avas reached, and ���������would  undoubtedly h;we been tlie same distance if they  had not made a bad  mess at the turn.  BrockArille,   however," SAViuig  their boat  around   in   quick    time . ancl. were four  strokes to the good Avhen the _avo crews"  squared  aAA'ay  for home.    It Avas here  that Dempsey put the fire into his ere av  that at the end gave them tlie flag.      He  dug and tore the water until  it  boiled  behind the frail shell, and at the mile had  driven his craft until it passed .lie Brockville shell.    From that point to the finish  the contest  Avas  exciting, and  the   -aa'o  ereavs Avere cheered at every stroke.    A  hundred yards  from  the line Dempsey  called on his clubmates, and, doing two  men'swork himself, the Pemisylyaiiiaus  SATURDAY MOftNTOG, JULY 29,  1899.

She %vas for a Avhile  apparently tacking for a buoy further  south altogether. How the Gloncairn's  skipper, avIio knows the lake so well  tacked out so far, was variously commented upon, and at any rate it Avas here  that tlie Canadian boat made her greatest loss, the Constance turning the buoy  nearly five minutes ahead of her. While  the Constance led from the start to the  finish the Glencairn gained on every subsequent leg. with the exception of the  second leg of the second round, when she  lost five seconds.  A noticeable feature of the race was  that in going round the buoys the Glencairn could get her spinnaker out immediately, Avhile the Constance Avas much  slower, covering fifteen to tAventy yards  before doing so. Tliis AA'as a straight  gain of at least five'seconds for the Canadian yacht in this single instance. The  Glencairn ran much better before the  wind, her large spinnaker giA'ing her this  advantage, but the American boat  pointed much better. The Constance  pointed almost straight into the Avind.  The moderate southwest breeze of the  morning stiffened slightly as the clay progressed, but again moderated. The sailing of today showed tliat the American  boat has the ach'antage in the lighter  wind, and beating to winclAvai'd' she can  sIioav the Glencairn the way, but before  the wind she is at some disadvantage on  account of sail area.  Mr. Crane and his creAv received the  congratulations of the many friends they  haAre made in Montreal upon the first  day's success, and the Canadian crew  took their defeat in a sportsmanlike  spirit. The course 'tomorrow will.'he'a;  triangular one. The.-elapsed time of the  Constance was 2 hours, 20 minutes, and  25 seconds, and the elapsed time of the  Glencairn Avas 2 hours, 20 minutes and 40  seconds. ���  THE CONTRACT SYSTEM IS NOT  0_^iR_i��-^iiaeta_wii&"S!__��_  !:���smgle.-j^;$icV^  Satisfactory to the Miners', Union.

Dorvai,, July 28.���Tlie first day's race  for the Sefl-Wanhaka cup has resulted in a  victory for the American challenger Constance over the Canadian defender Glencairn, by tAvo minutes and fifteen seconds.  The result Avas a surprise to the large  croAArd of MontrealerS avIio Avere present  at the course to see the race. Designer  G.Herrick Duggan's good luck had become  proverbial, aud his supporters Avere  Avilling to back tlieir opinions in a tangible manner. There was a very large  croAA'd of spectators, and after considerable manoeuvring about the starting  point tlie preparatory gun AA'as fired at  1:45, and ten minutes later the Avhistle  bleAV for the start. The Constance crossed  the line first at 1:55.03, folloAA'ed by the  Glencairn just a second later.  The first leg AA'as to the winchvard, and  here the Constance shoAved up Avell.  There was a slightly perceptible gain for  the Constance until the boats began to  tack, and then the Glencairn proceeded  to tack for a buoy somewhat.'out of the  course. :   It Avas when  tacking for this  earning?

London, July 29.^���The morning papers  generally express satisfaction Avith the  outcome of yesterday's debate in the  house. The Times says the result of the  discussion is all that the ministers could  desire. If it has done nothing else it has  exploded the delusion that Mr. Chamber-  Iain is at variance Avith Mr. Balfour and  lord Salisbury in the Transvaal controversy. The Standard reports the remarks of the Times. The Daily NeAvs  remarks upon the large measure of  agreement: Avliich the debate reA'ealed betAveen the Libera] and Conservative parties, and says: "When this fact is recognized it ought to have a most salutary  effect in South Africa and contribute to a  peaceful settlement.":  THE TOWNS ANDJHE DISTRICT  Is it a Case of Suicide?

The Exchequer  mine  Avill   commence  shipping early  next mouth.    It  \A*as intended to get  out  the   initial   shipment  this month, but the absence of the manager  of  the   company,  and   the  uncertainty as to Avhere the ore should be sent  for treatment preArented this being done.  The first shipment, wliich   will be taken  out within the next two weeks, avi 11 consist of between 50 ancl   00   tons  of high  grade ore.     Following this it is probable  that an arrangement will be made with  one of the smelters for the treatment of  the entire output of the mine.    When  this is done  regular  shipments  will  be  .made each Aveek.    The size of these shipments   will  A'ery  largely determined by  the smelter returns as it may happen that  Avhat is regarded as second class ore will  pay to ship under present Conditions.   In  tiny event the management  of the Exchequer expects to ship in the neighborhood  of   100  tons  per  month.    Assays  upon the Exchequer vein have given uniformly high returns.

Their  action   in  refusing  the tlid asked fur  to sustain   the  court's  authority is said to haA'c been prompted  by dispatches  received  by , tho  German  commissioner from his home goA'oriinient,  which, it is claimed, is greatly displeased:  with his recognition   of  the  decision   of  tiie supreme court in  the  kingship  case.  Last week the chief justice issued orders  orders     to     certain    towns    in    Sanaii  to    appear    before    the   supreme  court  in     certain     civil     cases     wliere     the  judgment of  the court   had   not been  complied Avith, chief Lailati ordered them  not to obey, telling the towns to pay no  attention  to"the  orders  of    the   court,  AA'hich were only Avords on paper.   Some  toAvns did not appear, Avhile from the remaining  ones  only    Malieota   men   appeared.    The Mataafa men openly defied  the courts.    The chief justice then asked  the commissioners to support his authority, AA'ith Avaf\ships  if necessary, and on  their refusal he decided to leave  Samoa.  The commissioners expect to sail for the  United States on the Badger on July 20th.  ACCIDENT IN SOVEREIGN MINE  Both Victims May Die.

The romance of Australian gold mining  is not  inaptly illustrated by the history  of the Wyalong gold Held in New South  Wales.    Less than seven years ago it was  simply    a   grazing     district,   consisting  largely  of crown  lands held on lease by  pastoralists, the level nature of the country,   covered   with   red   soil   and   scrub,  causing it to be neglected by prospectors,  although the Teniora gold field, with its  busy  population, aviis  only forty  miles  distant.    In July, 1893, a Victorian colonist, named Neeld,  and his family, being  desirous   of.obtnhiing a   larger   area  of  land for settlement that Avas possible under the  Victorian land laAvs, crossed the  river   Murray and   made  tlieir way to  Wyalong,  338   miles   south of Sydney,  Avhere a suitable area of land was secured.    Mr.  Neeld, who had had  considerable experience on the  Bendigo, Ballarat  and   other    Victorian   gold   fields,   Avas  speedily impressed by the auriferous conditions of the district, his attention being  attracted by numerous ironstone nodules  and loose fragments of quartz.    This was  at the beginning of August, 1893, and he  at once commenced prospecting, but did  not succeed in finding gold until about a  month after his arrival, Avhen he discovered it in a loose piece of quartz.    Other  discoveries followed, and a few days later,  systematic prospecting   operations AA'ere  ���"Com.ii\enc|ed."j:.

A dis-  (iiK-lioii  sliould   be    made   between   the  waxen", half ripe potato of early summer  and the fully ripe, fresh tuber, wliich is a  potato in perfection.    Half ripe   potatoes  are   never  wholesome,   though   the  Germans prefer these   immature   vegetables  for their favorite salad,    it i.s a mistake  to use   half ripe   potatoes  or fco   use cold  potatoes   when   freshly  cooked  potatoes  can be ^obtained.    The best potato salad  can hardly be recommended on the score  of  Avholesomcness,  yet it sliould  be re-  .meinbered  that the  condiments  used in  its preparation assist digestion,  and tha.t  a potato  salad is  therefore far more digestible  than a half  ripe, Avaxen boiled  potato simply  dressed iu butter.    Parisian cooks   seldom    use    cold   potatoes.  AVhen they Avish to cook   potatoes rapidly for  a garnish  to meat for  breakfast,  they usually cut the ra,AV. potato in small  ornamental shapes of uniform size, which  "will cook quickly.    Sometimes the potatoes are  cut into  julienne shaped pieces  about the  thickness of tAvo matches and  the   length "of   a   short   parlor   match.  More often, hoAveA'er, they are shaped into small balls, or "pears," Avith scoops.    A  good steel potato scoop, cutting a ball of  three-quarters  of an inch  in  diameter,  costs about forty cents.    It should have"  a small hole in the center of the boAvl to  admit of air.  AN IMPORTANT TEST CASE.  -An important case affecting the Avorking of coal mines in British Columbia Avas  before the judicial committee of thepriAry  council the fore part of this mouth. Lords  Watson, Hobhouse and Macnaughten and  sir Edward Fry heard the appeal. The  question arose on an appeal by the Union  Colliery Company and others from a  judgment of the supreme court of British  Columbia on an appeal in an action  brought by the respondent John Brydeu  onbehalif ofJiiinselfi,and,othersharehold  "Chinamen" Avas a Avell known term,  AA'hich in Canada meant "yelloAv men" or  "men of color." He argued that the la.AVs  Avhicli was passed iu the public interest,  was constitutional, and Avithin the competence of the provincial legislature.  Mr. Taylor, Q.C, having addressed the  court for the respondents, tlieir lordships  reserved judgment.  The Frenchwoman's Slim Effect.  The tight  lacing of  Frenchwomen has  passed  into a proverb.    But  makers  of  fine lingerie Avill explain  to any one who  has the curiosity to  investigate that the  slim   effects for Avhieh  the I'arisienne is  [anions are obtained  quite as  much   by  the manner of Avearing   the   undergarments as by their cut or by any straining  of the corset string.    Here, for example,  is a point to be noted :    AVhereas, skirts  in Canada have had a habit of coming to  the   waist line, no  French girl   would   so  far misshape herself as to let  the skirt-  band conic  higher than the  second clasp  of the corset.    An inverted  hook catches  all  skirtbands   in   her   toilet and   holds  them  Avell down  in  front,  though   the  strings tie at the waist behind.    AVhen a  short  Avaisted  Eton  or bolero corset is  donned Avith  such a skirt arrangement,  French art accomplishes a result  to par-  allel Avliich a Canadian girl, Avith her accumulation  of  garments   at the   Avaist,  AA'ould haA'e   to pinch and  get red in the  face drawing up her lacings.

The summer potato requires entirely  different treatment from the winter  tuber, whieli has grown stale aud strong  from long storage. There are uoav many  delicious ways in which this vegetable  may be cooked which are uot desirable  methods later wlien the potatoes are no  longer fresh. One reason why new potatoes are so much better than old ones is  because they are not peeled and the  starchy coat on the outside, as well as the  saline salts of the vegetable, are thus preserved. It is. a mistake to peel a potato  before it is boiled. Keep a stiff little  vegetable scrubbing brush on hand. Put  the potatoes iii cold water and scrub  thorn clean with the brush. Tn summer  throw potatoes with their jackets on into  piling tjieiu "Ah" otheiypoiiiioni, aB- lapjbi:  erSi  Ibeljow "ground,)-'Iii' -liffciugj.oi% arid  AKiiihing the "COafi    Ml> Bryderi^&;H-ged  that "the emi51byiii-lij of"(3hufam6n c3ii the'  jnii-3��y"hy i-easpil} of itlleiX'UiS'apapi^, was  ] cTa-ngeroLiis ancl i*qju_JL6ti-��,".0 .the 'pr��6i?er.ty  of the company*; "arid fujitliMV thab suqh;  i -iiiplp*5^iii��iitm "vjyas- eOhtraryy.

C, of Victoria, and Joseph Shaw  of London, appeared for the respondents,  and Mr. Hakkine, Q. 0., aud C. A. Russell,  Q.

Mr. Blake argued tliat the  judgment of the courts below sliould be  reversed, on the grounds that the enactment in question was uot within the competence of tlie provincial legislature,  and because the Canadian parliament,  having dealt with the subject in so far as  seemed to that parliament fitting in the  public interest, it was not competent to  the provincial legislature to impose further special restrictions and disabilities  upou Chinese immigrants.
