 ft-OV;  THE GLENCAIRN WINS THE GUP  Tliere was  the morning,  In an  Unsatisfactory Way.  Dorvai,, Aug. 3.���Today's  race  which  was  to have  been the final  one for the  Seawanhaka cup between the American  challenger Constance and the  Canadian  defender Glencairn   has turned out most  unsatisfactorily, for skipper Duggaif had  to sail his boat  over  the course  alone,  while Mr. Crane of tlie Constance, after  protesting the race through having taken  ground   with   her center board in manoeuvring for the starting  line, had the  Constance brought down from the course  oil'   Point Kclaire   to  the  Si;.   Lawrence  yacht club liouse at  Dorva  a fresh southwest bree/.e all  which increased now  and  again in pull's,  but later in   the  day   when the hour for  the start arrived at   1:2-   the bree/.e avus  only   a   very   moderate    one   and    had  shifted more to the south, so that in order  to get a beat  straight   to windward the  the     buoys     had      to      be       changed.  The     wind     kept     shifting     all      the  time     and     continued     to      moderate.  In fact it was regular Glencairn   weather  and  in  changing tho buoy   it  was  seen  that each leg would have to be   reduced  to one  and  one-half miles  making  the  course four times round to complete   the  twelve miles.    After considerable trouble  of this  kind  and  after  the  buoys  had  been changed  three  times, the  starting  whistle  blew at  3:05  and   the  waiting  spectators now anxiously looked   for  a  race. ��  The Glencairn crossed the line at 3:05,  15 but tlie Constance did not cross, having struck the ground while manoeuvring  for the start as above stated. Then followed Mr. Crane's verbal protest, but the  officials decided to contiuue the race and  deal with the protest afterwards. By  this time the Glencairn was well up the  first leg and a small yacht was sent to  inform her to complete the course, wliich  overhauled the Canadian defender as she  was.about rounding the buoy. The Glencairn accordingly proceeded and with the  moderate wind wliich was blowing  finished the twelve miles at 0:25, 15.  This made the elapsed time 3  hours, 0 minutes, 22 seconds, so that  she was well within the five hour time  limit. Mr. Regis H. Post, part owner of  the Constance, gave out a statement to  the press in the matter, and the official  sailing committee gave the following  statement:  The course was set southwest by south  from-Upper   Dorval   light two .miles to  wind ward.

DAILY (BY MAIL) $5 A YEAR;  WEEKLY, $2.  torical Society show that 220 British soldiers fell at the battle of Bunker Hill,  most of whom are supposed to have been  buried on the common. The men who  fell were members of the 18th Royal  Irish and 23rd Royal Welsh Fusiliers.  The monument will be in the shape of an  Irish cross nf bronze with a halo around  it, iii'itinted on pink granite with a gray  granite base.  CITY OF KASLO IN A FAIR WAY  To ho Plucked by Highwaymen.  The City of Kaslo has a damage suit  on its hands as the result of certain irregularities in attempting to enforce its  trades license bylaw. Some time ago  Mrs. Sa.nikins and Miss James were arrested in Sandon upon a warrant issued  by mayor Hartin of Kaslo for a breach  of the Knslo bylaw in peddling face  cream without a license. The women  have returned to Butte, Montana, and  through a firm of lawyers have instructed  lawyers McAnn and Mackay of Kaslo to  bring actions against the City of Kaslo  for $2000 damages in each case. The  women, evidently, think they have a  good case, and the Kaslo lawyers are instructed to employ such assistance as  they may deem necessary for a vigorous  prosecution of the cases.

A^ictoria, August 3.���The official gazette today contains the following provincial appointments: Henry Alexander  Stewart of Victoria; Richard Armstrong  of Grand Forks; William B. Townsend of  Rossland, Arthur Bernard Buckworth of  Ymir, J. P.; Frederick C. Elliott, Henry  George Sanders Heisterinan of Rossland;  William F.

Good progress is being made by Maxwell Stevenson on the Highlander tunnel.  It is now in about 100 feet and is getting  into firmer ground, wliich will permit the  use of power drills. It is expected that  the compressor will be ready for use in  about two weeks. When this is used the  machine men will be paid at'the rate of  $4 por day. Although Ainsworth is  generally regarded as a. low-price camp,  there are a great many men here who  aro receiving the Union scale of $3.50 per  day for eight hours. There has been  less trouble over the wage question in  Ainsworth than in any camp in Kootenay. The Little Phil property is shipping about forty tons per day. The output is being put through the Highlander  concentrator. The No. 1 Mine is shipping  again. Tliere are fifty men Avorking on  the property.  About the Size of It.  Now Deliver Ledge.  The Mine Owners' Association and the  the Miners' Union are formed for the  mutual protection and welfare of their  members. The mine owners will do what  they can to reduce wages so as to increase  their profits; the mine Avorkers Avill do  what they can to uphold Avages and . increase their comforts of living. - This is  their privilege. But a reduction of the  wages to $3 a day would eventually t  mean a reduction of the Avage scale to  other laborers about the mines to $2.50  and $2 a day. Good Avages Avould mean  more money to be spent at home by men  AArho spend it at home. Poor Avages Avould  mean more money to be spent abroad by  meu avIio spend abroad.

Nobody has yet  offered even 800 pence for the documents.  A Tardy Recognition.

Dissatisfied With Their Local Paper  An amusing incident occurred at a recent meeting of the Kaslo board of trade.  Wheu the regular business had been gone  through   with, a member  arose   witli a  copy of the local paper in   his hand.    lie  made a short  speech,  in  which   ho said  that no town could grow unless it had a  newspaper that was entirely devoted to  the   town ; this   paper  (holding  up  the  Kooteiiaian) may be   published in Kaslo,  but anyone reading it would not beitAvare  of it.    The   word  Kaslo  appears   in   fche  date line oh the first page and nowhere  else.    Now  in  contrast, take this  paper  (holding up a copy of Tiik: Dailv Ti'iin-  unb). ��� Anyone  reading  it  A\-ould  know  that     it     was    published    in     Nelsou.  And     the     result   . is     that      Nelson  today   is   one    of   the   groAving   towns  of the proA'incc.    He said  more, but the  aboAre  Avill   suffice.    In   tins  connection,  the statement might be  niade that This  Triuunb,- since   the   first   number   Avas  issued  in  NoA*-einber, 1S92, has  devoted  more  space to  Kaslo  audits  local and  mining news, twice over, thanall the papers ever published in Kaslo.    No edition  has  ever appeared   that Kaslo has  not  been mentioned; but at  the  same time  Nelson   has  not been  overlooked.    But,  then, Till-Trihuni-has never  been controlled  by   ambitious  politicians or by  self-seeking     laAvyers    and    pig-headed  mine managers.  Formal Papers Received.  Sheriff Tuck yesterday received the foi-.'  loAving communication from Joseph Pope,  under secretary of state: "I am commanded to inform you, in confirmation  of my telegram, that his excellency the  goArernor general has had under his consideration the case of Felix Pasto, who  Avas tried before the honorable Mr. Justice Drake, at Nelson, for the crime of  murder, and having been convicted  thereof, AAras sentenced to be executed on  Thursday, the 10th day of August, 1899;  rand to state that his excellency has  thought fit too -order that the sentence of  eiidi-mi-M^  ;fcedi       " " "  the influence of liquor being landed in  the lockup.

He has uoav things in shape- for  a good Avinter's Avork. In addition to  considerable surface work, there is a' 50-  foot tunnel in upon the lead, Avhieh aArer-  liges about eighteen inches in width. .The  ore is a grey copper, carrying high A'alues  in silver as Avell as lead and copper values.  Two neAV tunnels are being driven.  Adjoining the Richelieu company's  property is the Silver Hill and other  claims, Avhieh are being developed by the  London Consolidated Company, a sister  company to the Richelieu. There are  tAvouty-h>e men at Avorlc on this group,  and considerable deA-elopnient has been  done. One tunnel is in 000 feet and there  are tAvo or three other tunnels Avliich are  in from 200 to 300 feet.

PRESBYTERIAHS THE PIONEERS  In Church Work in  Kootenay.  Rev. Dr. Robertson, superintendent of  missions of the Presbyterian  Church in  Canada,   who is   in   Nelson,  informad  a  Triijunj. reporter  that  steps  had been  taken to build a church Avithout delay at  Greenwood.    The Methodist people haAre  the shallof tlieir church erected and the  Baptists   haAre   made  a   beginning.     At  Grand Forks too a church is to  be  built  this autumn, and GraiuLEorks and Columbia, are each to have a minister  of  their  own after September. At Cascade a church  is being built; and will be ready for occupation in about a month.    DeA'clopments  at I-hoIt, Phoenix and other places Avhere  a missionary is afc work may  necessitate  building   this  autumn  at  these centres.  In this whole western country the  Presbyterian Church was the  pioneer, maintaining  services   for   years   before any  other church put in an appearance, and  the people are not unmindful of the service rendered.    Asked about the progress  of fche church in British Columbia, he said  that it was steady and rapid.    There-are  now four presbyteries with 23  congregations, 20 missions under ordained mission-������(('.  aries, and 21  under catechists  or  uhor-  dained  missionaries.      Speaking  of the  growth of the.work iu the district under  his superintendence he made tlie folloAV-  ing interesting comparison:  Presbyteries......-'..'-..

Educate Uncle Sam.  Toronto Telegram.  Canada ought to stand tho expense of  a railway into the V'ukoii for the sake of  educating the United States and Great  Britain. All this country's troubles with  the United States originate in the belief  that the American market and American  good-will are the essentials of our national  existence. The United States really believes that trade between older Canada,  and the Canadian goldfields in the Yukoi  is possible only on terins to  be dictated at Washington. It o is  Canada's boundon duty then to  educate the United States out of this  error and to build railways sons to -prove)  that this country can establish her own  trade routes, without help or favor from  the government at "Washington. The  United States is acting as pretty nearly  every other nation would act; if ifc  thought that a neighbor was at its  mercy. The fundamental Ainericai  error is the belief that; Canada cannot  deal with the Yukon through her own  territory, aud it is Canada's duty to  spare no expense to remove this error.  Mosquitoes and Malaria.  Some interesting investigations have  recently been carried ou by physicians  and scientists, intended to prove the  long-suspected relation Avhicli nipsquitoe.-  bear to malaria. Enough has been done  to demonstrate clearly the fact that the  night air is not; fche real enemy, but the  mosquitoes which enter AA'hen the windows are open. Persons, even in the:  most malarious of countries, .who wear  gauze, veils-by day and who sleep under  nets at night, remain impervious to tlie  evils of the climate, proving -that insects,  not the air,- have caused the trouble. - - A.

One showery September morning in  the year ISO- whilst weiuling my way to  my office 1 happened to meet, opposite  the Kent house, on St. Louis street, an  esteemed oldfriend, familiarly known to  Quebecei's of the time a.s Long Je>hn  l^raser, from liis great heiglit.  Long John, despite his 74 years still as  straight as an arrow, Avas sauntering along  that historic street in the direction of  Abraham's Heights, beyond St. Louis  gate.  After exchanging a friendly greeting,  alluding to the memorable 13th September of 1759, and its showery Weatlier,  described by historians, 1 asked' him  whether lie was bound for the famous  battlefield, on which so many of his namesakes, the Erasers, had, Avith their chiy-  mores, played such a lively part in tlie  great drama of 1759. Without a " yes "  or a ���' no " he replied : " My friend, I was  not there, but if you can spake a niiuute  I will tell you an anecdote relating to me  by one who Avas there aud participated in  tlie fight." Eager to field one more to reminiscences of this stirring period, I,  readily assented, wlieu. the genial raconteur held out as follows: ."In my  youth," said Mr. Fraser, " 1 boarded .-with,  a A'ery old man, named Joseph Trahan,  who, as a young militiaman, had fought  oiUthe Plains of A^rahain.rIn 1759 Tra^.  <l$n%wj^^.i^  lViiin whii'li the baker had removed na.  men full of bread. Some of our exhausted fugitives begged food from him.  He pointedly refused to give us any,  when t'one of our party, enraged at such  heart hiss conduct, lopped off his head  with his sword. Tliis bloody trophy was  placed ou the pile of bread. Hunger having deprived me of any other feeling, I  seized a loaf of bread reeking with gore,  and Avith niy pocket knife removing the  crust, I ate the white portion of the loaf.  " ' This took place in the afternoon and  the sun was descending towards the  west.'"  My pleasant raconteur shook niy hand  aud we parted.  Mr. Fraser ex pi reel recently at Charleston in his 73rd year.  Lord Herbert Kitchener intenels to  leave London on "August Sth for Onidui'-  man, to resume his duties as governor-  general of the Sudan. 'Gordon's palace at  Khartum has now been almost entirely  rebuilt, and will be usee] as the Goverii-  ment house.  DRINKING    AND    LENGTH    OF    LIFE.  In the Popular Science Monthly a  review of legislation during  the past  five  years against the drink evil in the forty-  nine states and territories  in. the United  States   is   begun by  Appletou   Morgan.  He submits apparent paradoxes develop-  ed  from   his  close  study of the  official  statistics, as, for instance, that the larger  the consumption of. liquor-the less elriink-  eiiess.    This conclusion Mr.  Morgan submits dispassionately, liot as his oavu cre'a-f  tion, but as an inevitable eleeluctiou from  the  official figures submitted under the  'paths ;pf'-the authorities commissioned to  collect them.    In passing, Mr. Morgan, toi  add to the completeness of his discussion,  gives tlie results obtained  by the  collection and classification of 4234 deaths by  the British Medical Association, .divided  for  reference iuto  five classes,  namely, I  total   abstainers,  habitually  temperate,  careless drinkers, free -drinkers anel habitual-'���-drunkards.'  The   age  of cleath  of  those in  each class were registered, together Avithbthe causes of death, aud  the  a Averagelength of life for each  class was:  computed, with the following results :  .Total.abstainers,-.'..,..;..,.���,,...��,-,.'.,-,....��.,,...51.32 years.  Peelro Ovida, formerly cabin-boy and  bugler on the Spanish cruiser Vix.ea.ya  anel now a protege of Charles Lambert, a  Brooklyn navy yard employee, wants to  enlist in the United State's n'avy. He has  been conditionally accepted by the recruiting office, pending tlte decision of the  navy department on a point'raised- by.  rear-admiral Philip. The admiral thinks  that as Peelro got his liberty from Annapolis on parole with the other prisoners  who were expected to return to Spain,he  may be consielered a eleserter from the  Spanish navy.     ______  Lady Shelly, Avielow of sir Percy!  Florence Shelley, son of the poet, and!  'third baronet, elieel last month at Bos-i  combe Manor, her charming .place ou the!  cliffs at Bournemouth, .England, where j  she.-had resided in retirement since the\  death-bf her husband, ten years ago.

With hor death the last link' with the  poet in tho direct line has been snappee  as sir Percy anel lady Shelley hael no  children. The dee-eased lady was proud  of her connection with the poet and took  a great interest in Shelley literature, anel  with her late husband, edited, directly or  indirectly} a good deal of what has been  published on the subject.
