 THE GAME OF BASE BALL AS IT  Was Played at Grand Forks.  The Nelson baseball team defeated the  Grand Forks nine on Sunday afternoon  after a somewhat exciting game. Up till  tlieir meeting with the Nelson nine the  Grand Forks boys had never been beaten,  and consequently most of the Grand  Porks people thought that the local nine  would get away with Nelson's representatives. Unusual interest was manifested  in the game by the betting fraternity.  Most of the Grand .Forks people naturally  backed the home team, bill, there were  several former residents of Nelson who  placed smnll bets upon tlie visitors, and  these with Hugh M-Guirc<>f Grand Forks  covered much of the money which was  wagered upon the Grand Forks' boys,  McGuire's winnings on the game being  estimated all the way from $7;"i() to $1)00.  The Nelson boys arrived in Grand  Forks shortly after midnight on Sunday. Their forty-mile stage drive did  not inspire them with any too much confidence in tlieir ability to win the game,  and this together Avitli the knowledge  that tho visiting team aviis not as strong  as was expected,, checked any further  betting upon the Nelsonitos.  When the game was called, shortly  after tA\ro o'clock, there Avere close upon  one thousand spectators on the ground.  The Aveather was threatening and a few  minutes after play was commenced the  rain came down in torrents. There was  a steady doAvnpour for over half an hour,  tind when play Avas resumed tlie home  team had to take a Avet field and play in  a A'ery chilly atmosphere, Avhile the Nelson boys had the advantage of being at  bat.  Fleming, the left iiand twirler, put a  dainiier upon the hopes of the Nelsoii admirers by causing Houston the first man  up to fan the air. 'Davey. failed to hold  the ball hoAvever and Houston got to  first. There jvas anotlier surprise in  store for him, hoAVCA'cr. He took a rather  long lead from first, and Avas neatly  throAvn out by Fleming. Partridge made  things look brighter Avith a hit, and  promptly stole second. Eacritt got in a  hit and Partridge crossed the plate.  Eacritt then started for second, and in  the throwing about the diamond travelled to third on an error at second. Rockenfieid sent out a hot gi;oundor "to Fitch  avIio returned the ball to first in time to  retire the batter and prevent Eacritt  from scoring. Mills then got in a hit and  Eacritt scored. Mills ..'���stole' second  and AA'as scored on a hit  by Blackburn. Blackburn got around-  to' tliird and scored on ii passed ball.  "Smith then put up the fifth hit in tlie  innings. Campbell got to first, on an  error at, second and .Smith and lie both  crossed the plate on an error by .Russell.  Tu this way'/five hits'and* three errors  produced six runs. '-  The feature of the second innings avjis  a neat double play. Houston opened  Avith ar hit. Partridgq avIio came next  \sent a hot grounder to short. Fitch returned "the ball -to Sullivan avIio. shut  Houston out at second, and then to Russell, - who nipped * Partridge at first,  foicritt then flied out to second and  * retired the side,  Rockenfieid commenced the hitting in  the third innings.

Mills Avas shut out at second and  a moment after Fleming caught Blackburn napping at first. Smith then got in  a, nice three base hit to left, but Campbell popped a fly to second and retired  the side.  Nelson added three runs in the fourth.  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUJYi BIA.

Davey's scored Coryell, Fleming and  Fitch. In the fifth Rockenfieid and Houston presented SulIiA'Jin Avith a run. He  went to first on balls and travelled around  the diamond on passed balls.  Grand Forks came within one of tieing  thi! score in the sixth. Fleming was hit  by Rockenfieid, after which Fitch made;  a. hit. Welch then drove a long fly close  to the foul line of right field. The ball,  which was declared fair by the umpire,  rolled into the basement of an adjacent  liouse, and before it could lie fielded Fleming, Filch and Welch crossed the plate.  Campbell's muff of Fitch's fly to left,  a passed ball and an error by Houston at  the plate added a run in the eighth, while  a hit by Coryell iu the ninth and Eacritt's  muff of Fleming's fly accounted for another run in the ninth.

Special to the Tribune.  Victoria, July 31.���Tlie lieutenant-  governor received Martin's resignation  only this evening so that no ollicial action  has yet been taken. Aulay 3Iorrison  denies the report circulated that his visit  to Victoria has aiiy connection with  proA'ineial politics. There is a rumor tonight that representations are being  made to the lieutenaut-govoriioi'' from  persons of the highest standing -in business, circles, and not machine politicians,  inf'avor'of requesting Semlin's retirement"  to permit of the formation of a stronger  cabinet. Miuing men of Kootenay are  said to-be represented in this moArenient  by senator Cox, Avho after a few -days  visit on his oavu business, left Victoria on  Saturday night,, but, returned tonight,  and has an appointment with the lieu-  teimnt-governor for- tomorrow.

There is a deer lick across the river  near the cottage of ex-alderman Whalley.  and a Siwash hunter kept watch nightly  for a week before he was reAvarded Avitli  a. chance to tako a shot. The Siwash avjis  armed Av.ith an ancient double barreled  iiiii/./,le-loading shotgun, the left barrel of  which aviis split from breech to muzzle.  Me used No. (i shot, and by mistake put a  charge in both barrels. The deer came  down to the lick .about 12 o'clock Satur-  d:i,y night, and the Siwash bla/.ed away  with a shot from the split barrel. The  roar was terrific, but the only damage  done A\'as the awjikening of the ex-aldor-  miui from ti peaceful sleep and the scaring  of the deer. Rut the Indian was patient  and the deer avjis dry, for the caller came  back to the lick in ji couple of hours and  got the cluirge from the sound barrel bo-  hind the left shoulder.

BLANCHK.  Successfully Inaugurated.  A A'ery large gathering assembled yesterday afternoon to Avitness tho driving  of the first spike of the, Nelson street  railway, which included large numbers of  the fair sex. Seats were provided for the  ladies, and in a tent behind the crowd  refreshments were to be obtained. When  all was in readiness the mayor opened  the proceedings with a short speech, lie  said:  "I am glad to see so many here on this  interesting occasion. You Jill know a\'c  are here for the purpose of Avitnessing  the driving of the first spike of the Nelson street raihviiy. When Mr. Druin-  mond made his proposal to the last  council for a charter for the raihvay, and  which proposjil the council expressed  themselves Avilling to support, wo.did not  think it Avould be so quickly an accomplished fact. The confidence of such men  as Mr. Drummond, and those associjited  AA'ith him, avIio are Avilling to invest their  money in enterprises of this kind without  expecting Jiny immediate profit on their  capital tends greatly towards building  up ji prosperous city, and avc all, I am  sure, hope and trust that OA'ery expectation of theirs in regard to their enterprise here, an enterprise Avhieh Avill be  jipprecijited and vjilucd by us all, Avill be  fully rejilized.  "Mr. Drummond, I beg to present you  ���AA'ith this gold spike, and, on beluilf of  the city, call upon you to perform the  first part of the work of the jictual construction of the Nelsoii street. raihvay.  Before you perforin the Jict I have called'  upon you to do, I Avould Jisk alderman  Fletcher, chairman of the public Avorks  conimittee, and alderman Beer, representing the. finance committee, to make a  few remarks." ;,-'���'--.-  Aldernijin Beer then stepped up to the  table Jind delivered a ; short but humorous speech, in fact quite the speech of the  afternoon. He referred to the tact that  Nolson, before entering into jin alliance  AA'ith the street raihvay company, carefully looked into the antecedents of her  future partner and SJifcisfied herself that  he would keep regular hours and that  the contract AA'ould be a permanent one.  Usually the bridegroom presented a ring,  but in this case the bride provided the  spike. Concluding,, he, ������paid ji avoII deserved tribute to "the pioneers of Nelson,',  who, Avith none of the advantages or encouragement iioav obtaiiuible, drove the  first spikes that" ensured Nelson's prosperity.  Alderman Fletcher followed Avith a few  approprkito remarks, and then the object of the gjithering wjis jichioA'ed. C. S.  Drnmniond," managing director of .the  company, took tlio handsome gold spike  presented him by tlie mayor and dro\*e it  into the rail Avith due pomp and circumstance.^ The spike driven, Mr. Drummond  adjourned to the table and 'made a short  speech, in which lie expressed the confidence he and his associates felt in the future prosperity of Nelson, Knowing the  impossibility of niiinagiug such a concern  from a distance of six thousand miles,  the" English board had, after due inquiry,  appointed F. AV. Peters and cjiptnin Duncan local directors, jis two capable men  AA'hom both they and tlie people of Nel-  son~eould~r,rust: Ho~^iJso���p;i1d~7rtritrut-~  to the capabilities ot tlio company's engineer, 0. Htiii_ax- Hall, who has had jin extended experience in railWivy engineering both iu Canada and England for the  past sixteen years. He concluded bysiiy-  idg he expected ..the trjiiuAViiy avouM be  in operation by October.,  The iiiiiyor then called upon 0. Hal ifiix  Hall for iv speech, but Mr. Hah declined  to be draAvn, saying it AA'ould bo time  enough for him   to make a .-peach when  shoAvn the sterling qualities of this branch  of the Anglo-Saxon race.    The army and  navy and the Nelson  rifle company were  coupled with the  mime  of captain A. E.  Hodgins, avIio made a brief and appropriate reply in Avliich he referred to the progress made by the Nelson company.    Alderman Fletcher  replied  for  the mayor,  council   and   city   oflicials  in   his   usual  happy manner, and   Alderiiuin Beer read  a poem written by AV F. Brougham. A. L.  McCulloch referred to the improvements  recently effected in electrical machinery,  and J. 11. Strachan dwelt on the progress  Nelson was making, and   pointed to  the  recent successful sale of the  city  debentures as a proof of the financial standing  of the city  in   eastern money  markets.  Last year the total Jissessed A'alue of the  city was some $000,000, Avhile this year it  is $1,000,000.   The  mayor,  seconded b>r  alderman  McKillop,  then  proposed   the  health  of the Nelson  electric tramway.  C. S. Drummond said in   reply  that the  matter of the construction  of the traniAvay had  been  under  consideration  for  eighteen months, and  lust year he  had  conferred with  former  mayor  Houston  jmd the city clerk in the matter, jmd had  always found a Avillingness to accord the  company  equitable   treatment.      When  the company finally decided to build they  thought it Avould be tAvo or  three years  before   receiving   any  return  for  their  outlay, but the  progress  of Nelson had  been such that the speaker uoav thought  they Avould not lniA'c to   wait  one  year.  Before the Avinter the .tramway AA'ould be  in shape to carry people.     He  expected  that the cars Avould   run  at  the  rate of'  jibout  twelve  miles  an ��� hour.     Cjiptain  Dunc-Jin, F.

Doiivat., July .'31.���The second race for  the Seawjinhaka cup came off today on  Lake St. Louis, and contrary to the expectation of the supporters of the Cana-  diar? boat, Glencjiirn III, it AA'as Avon by  the American boat Constance by 55 seconds, thus making tAvo Avins out of fi\Te  races against the Glencjiirn's nothing,  jmd, as the course tomorrow Avill be to  tho windward and return in a fresh  "breeze the Constance should have ji good  sIioav. She certainly sIioaa'cc! marA'olous  windward work in the first ten rounds of  the triangular course today.' The Constance pointed much higher and stiffer  than the Glencairn against the Avind.  Nine seconds after the starting whistle  the Constance shot over the line folloAvecl .  seven seconds hiter by the Glencairn, both  holding on the starboard  tack.     It  soon  began to be evident  that  the  Glencairn  avjis being outsailed  on  this  particular  leg, Avliich was to  the windAvard.    Some  strong puffs came jilong, 'and; Avhile  the  Constance  stood  Avell   up  to them, the  Glencairn  heeled  over  until  her centre  board came out of the A\'ater and she Avas  compelled    to    lull'    immediately.      On  .making  the  first   buoy   the  Constance  shoAA'cd better judgment as the Canadian  luid to tack tAvice before she reached it.  In the reach tb the second buoy the Glencairn III. picked up 15 seconds, both boats  rounding in one  long  run.    On the run  ;  before the Avind to the starting buoy the c  Constance  had   some   trouble  Avith her  sails aiid  the Gloncjiirn agjiin  gained a ;  little, but it aviis only momentary, and on  this leg, AA'hich  Avas  supposed to be very  fjivorable to the Glencairn, the Canadian  yacht only made a- gain of ten seconds,  jmd nt the end of the first round of four  niiles the American  bofit Avas tAvo minutes ahead.    In   the   next  leg  the Con-1  stance iigain showed fine judgment in her  Avindward Avork, and .'"inade a gain in the  leg of one  minute  and 37 seconds."  On  the  next   leg   the   Constance  increased  her   lejid   by   ji   few   seconds,   but   on '  the      run       before      the      Avind      on  the       hist       one       of       the      second  round she reefed her main sail, while the  l>  'Glencairn-held  on   to hers and  lowered22  the Constance's lead by 1 minute iind  10  seconds on this log, so tluit at the end of  the  eighth  mile  the  Constance Vvyas  2; i  minutes and 31 seconds  jiheiul.

The    brave,   siinple-inii-iled  Transvaal judyed Gladstone  SAVINGS BANK BRANCH.  CURRENT RATE OK INTKRKST PAID  MINING   EXPERTS.  Butt oMini-K World.  A learned judge, who served many  years upon the bench in Avestern mining  states, once said tliat a mining expert is  one who i.s thoroughly conversant Avith,  and possesses a practical knowledge ol*  mining. And added : "Mining is not an  exact science. What iiiay.!:_ true of one  mine may not be true of another. Geology is a science, but it is a science yet to  be perfectly understood. The Almighty.  gaA'e no easy lesson to man wheu He  placed the study of His creation before  him," To a layman tho reasoning of the  judge appears plausible, if not sound.  The Creator gaA'e no text books treating  upon mining or geology to man. .But He  endowed him with perceptive faculties  and reasoning powers and has permitted  him to fathom the mysteries of both in  liis oavu Avay. If all do not agree it is because each cannot look upon an object  "'.with the same mental vision that the  others do.   '  He A\7as a miner as avcII as the wise man  A\'ho said: "Sih'er is in rock, gold is  AA'here you find it." The saying is  ascribed to Solomon. It was said a great  many years ago, biit it has not yet been  disproved. Hc said nothing about  apexes, dips, angles, spurs, A'ariations,  horses, anticlinal folds or synclinal folds,  or qua(|iiaA'crsal folds or molTaclinal  -folds. JS'or did he mention., any tiling  about simple"fissure veins, or of normal  faults, or the recession of e'lill's or the  many other terms which figure in present  day text books, but he got there all the  same with his temple,. Avith its massive  decorations of gold and silver and  precious stones mined Avithout the use of  dynamite, or the employment of experts,  unless Tubal Gain, the first Avorker in  brass, as-i\s one. Solomon AA'as cvidcntly.a  practical miner, prospected for and work-  ed a placer, or gold bearing ore body, for  -the yellow metal, and milled and smelted  his sih'er from rock in place. !_C'�� doubtless exhausted his mines and sloped to  their apexes or they Avould now be in  litigation and a cloud of experts be on  hand to prove or disprove that Hitler  Haggard relocated the mines after the  death of "She," that Allan Quartennain,  working for him, followed the synclinal  fold of the unlift down to its blending  witli John Doe <fc Co.'s, and that then a  row commenced.  Expert testimony is valuable in determining Avhether a man died from heart  failure or want of breath, or whether ho  is insane Xvheu drunk, or gets drunk when  life is ingfttt&-_ These are nice poiiits to  BetTerniiuo, "bllt^tlf-^lI-ttM^la^^Spertris  supposed to see through  the earth  as  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Skaguay, U. S., Atlin;, B. C, and  Dawson City, Yuk.on District.  of Majuba Hill.    Majuba Hill Avould have  then b'-.cn   recognized at   its true size as  an accident which  did not represent the  Boers' permanent element of strength or  Great   Britain's    permanent  element   of  weakness.  Boers of the  by   their  own   standards   and-  assumed  that   he  ollered   a  compromise   because  conquest     Avas     impossible.       Conquest  sliould  have  jj receded  compromise, and  then the Boers could have enjoyed every  right  and   privilege  conferred   on them  without   thinking tliat  they OAved these  rights and   prh'ileges to their oavu prowess at Majuba Hill   instead of to the generosity of the government at London.    A  decish'e reversal of the result at Majuba  Hill might have been the beginning of an  enduring jjeace in South Africa, whereas  Gladstone's   ill-tuned    concessions   have  ripened   the  elements   of a    permanent  feud, betAA'een the races.  easily as he can through a looking glass  or the brain of a man, and everything he  says goes with everyone but the other"  fellows. Experts can tell us all about  the post-tertiiary period, the tertiary  period aiid the other periods, but they  can't .see into the solid ground fa_ther  than the veriest chuihp. They may distinguish a hanging Avail from a loot wall,  but they can't tell how lav, on0 must slnk  bttfore the hanging Wnill becomes the foot  Wall, nor tan th- most experienced miner  tell, lint there are niaiiy tilings lie can  tell not found in books, lie can tell the  eliariietev of the rock lie drills, tlie loea-  tion of the gouge, and width of the  gangue matter b��twedn Widts. lie u.ay  tell the change in either, but not Iioav the  change was effected. He can tell 'where  the pay streak is, but not Why it is in  " that particular place. He can tell when  he reaches water,, but not why Avater is  struck at a higher level at another place  in the same mine. He can tell a stringer  from .fissure vein matt-i1 and won't at-  ���������tempt to prove one is the other. He can  tell how hard lie works and what he gets  for it, but the books can't tell him Iioav  long either Avill last. He will ahvays  take experience for his guide in mining  matters and let theory go for AA'hat it is  worth, and that is about the way all  level-headed mining men will, take either.  Yet mining experts are handy about a  mining camp. They knoAV a good tiling  ���when tliey see one and Iioav to hold it  down.  A Mistaken Policy.  Toronto. Telegram.  Magnanimity toAvards the Boers .would  hot have bean  mistaken for Aveakness if  if Gladstone had taken the precaution to  'thump these, gentlemen after the battle  Will be Understood by Women.  According to the New York Sun, nearly every bonnet shop in Paris now sIioavs  in   its windows  a card,  announcing that  the "summer stock  has been  greatly reduced in price.    Even the most expensive  shops on the avenues do not disdain this  method of ridding themselves of the leftover headgear.    It  is sometimes difficult  to  decide Avhy  the  neglected supply remained without purchasers.    Some ofthe  specimens are quite as  attractive as any  could   be.    But   the vague   question of  taste enters too closely into the question  of choice to make any  general conclusion  possible.    The  treatment   of purchasers  Avho call for these left-over supplies is not  ah\rays to their liking, if an experience in  one ''shop is  characteristic of all.    "It is  almost better  to do without a hat," said  a woman  who had just bought one at a  quarter of its original value, "than to be  patronized  by  tho saleswomen,  as anybody is aa'ho goes in a shop after the hats  have  been advertised   at cheaper  prices.  You are  treated with  a chilling  condescension that takes  away all tlie pleasure  of the purchase.    I AA'ould haA'e bought  one^ if the prices had  remained at their  original figure, because I needed it.    So 1  was nob in the mood to bo trouted'ai-- i�� 1  had  been been  waiting for  the-drop before   I   did   my   spring shopping.    The  slightest  objection to the shape or color  of a hat  brought out   from the  salcswo-  men the observation that-at this time of  the year  it was of course impossible  to  expect any  variety, in a tone as wither-  ing as if I had  asked her to  give me the  hat.   J* was  as conscious  of the  lateness  of the season as she AA*as, and had no unreasonable expectations.    So T had no intention of being treated  as if 1   Avere an  object  of charity.    That attitude greAV  too  marked on  the  part of   the  sales-  AA'oinan, and 1 left the jjlace Avithout discouraging her and causing myself inconvenience, for I found that the same attitude existed in all the shops.    It was not  tis aggrcssivelv expressed in   some as it  AA'as in others, but that seemed to be the  result  of   the    saleswoman's   character.  Some   of them   were less assertive tnan  Others, but they all exhibited & sort of  scoriifhi pity for a Womali Who bought a  ^l-at=innJuly7^_=Avo^  women in with offers Of such bargaining  when they intended to treat them with  such condescension aftei'ward.  a large party that is searching the peninsula in the hope of finding some trace of  the missing man.  'Tis a Credit to North Kootenay.  Up in North Kootenay Avhere the mine  OAvners deal direct Avith the mine workers  every mine or property under develop-  nient is paying the "scale," $3.50 for  eight hours. W. B. Pool, of the Great  Western mines, says their company paid  the $-.50 scale even before the eight-hour  law was enforced. This information is  taken from the Revelstoke Herald, a  ueAvsjiaper that opjjoses the Semlin government, but it is evident that it also opposes government by little coteries of  mine managers, like the one at Nelson  presided over by .1. Roderick Robertson,  the one at Kaslo presided over by G.  Alexander, and the one at Sandon presided over by P. .!. Hickey.  Quite Irish.
