 RIVAL YACHTS TWO HEATS EACH  In the International Race.  Dohval, August 2.���Today Was another  Glencairn day, the Canadian boat winning her second and the fourth "race for  the Seawanhaka cup. During the race  there were all kinds of breezes from east  to west and north to south, and it was  diflicult to say at times i\ hich boat had  the advantage as to wind. Undoubtedly,  however, Duggan's able seamanship told  well in placing the Glencairn 5 30 ahead  of the American challenger at the finish.  The excitement in local sporting circles  as to the outcome of tomorrow's race now  that both boats have two wins to the  good, is intense.  -   The   wind   was   rather  light   as   the  whistle sounded for the start at  1   hour  and -"-"minutes.    The Constance succeeded   in   crossing   tlie   line just at 1.55.25.  The Glencairn following   2 seconds   later  smartly crept into windward and ran up  her reaching .jib ami took her wind away  and left her  standing.    The   Constance's  sails, however, soon began to fill up again  and she ran under the Glcncaiin's  stern,  but   the  Glencairn's   clever  seamanship  got ahead and kept right i.p to the first  buoy, and this being  quickly  sailed, the  Glencairn   rounded  the buoy  1   minute  and 5(5 seconds ahead  of  the   Constance,  having thus gained 1.58  from   the  stait.  From the first to the second   buoy it was  a beat to windward, but the wind which  was from the southwest was  light, and  the Glencairn steadily  drew away  from  the   Constance,   the   Constance   making  poor headway in the lulls whieh occurred  between  the  short pull's of  wind.    The  Glencairn   rounded   the second   buoy  of  the first round 3 minutes and  3S seconds  ahead of the American boat and had her  spinnaker set in no time.    Constance had  lost 42  seconds  on  this  leg   when   she  rounded the buoy, but the rapidity with  which she had set out  her  spinnaker to  port   Avas   favorably  commented   .upon.  This leg  was'"before  the wind and the  Constance did so well as to  lose  only 29  seconds on a course in favor of the Glencairn, who completed  the  first  round 3  minutes, 7 seconds ahead of her rival.  Meantime heavy clouds formed in the  west and thunder and lightning were al:  most constant and both boats had to reef  in anticipation of a big storm, and most  of   the   small   pleasure   boats   ran   for  \ shelter from ^the storm, but it did not  turn out as bad as expected. By the  time the boats were running for the first  buoy on the second round the wind had  ��� .goneJialf .way rputulktliQ.coin pass  ajitKifc.

Ottawa, August 2.���The date  of prorogation   has  again   been  fixed.    It has  been decided to get all work of the  session through this week and   to  close the  house  on -Montiay.     There  need  be  no  difficulty in doing  this, as  the  principal  items   in   the   supplenientaries   are   all  through, and the only thing that remains  are the railway subsidies.    At a meeting  of the railway conimittee today another  discussion took place on Afr. Blair's  railway bill.    Only  two  important  clauses  have been dropped.    At a conference between the premier and Messrs. Haggart,  Blair and Tupper, it was decided in order  to close the session to drop clause five for  the present.    This   is  the clause   .wliich  provides for the adoption of one set  of  rules and regulations for all  roads.    Mr.  Blair hoped that they would  be able to  put  through  clause four, respecting the  location of railway stations by  the  gov-  ernor-general-in-council.   Air. Haggart offered strong resistence to this clause, and  finally  Air. Blair received  a letter from  the premier, who was in the liouse, stat-  iug that at another conference with  sir  Charles, he learned the opposition would  use all kinds  of obstruction to prevent  the clause    going   through  the  session.  The  result was  that  both clauses were  dropped and the  remainder  of the  bill  was passed.    Sir Charles  Tupper  leaves  today for England.    He sails  from Alon-  treal tomorrow.  KOOTENAY MINES AND SMELTERS  St. Louis Group Bonded.  A. II. Graccy, representing a Toronto  syndicate, has bonded the St. Louis  group, on Lemon creek. An outfit was  moved up to the property yesterday, and  a force of men will be immediately put  to work developing the claims. The St.  Louis group adjoins the Oro .townsite,  which belongs to the Oro Mining ��fc Milling Company, which at onetime had the  Golden Wedge claim under bond. The  syndicate in question, contrary to a prevalent impression, has nothing whatever  to do with the Oro Alining & Milling  Company.      '   , -  The Lardeau Promises Well.  A. W. Siegel, a mining operator from  Spokane, returned yesterday from Lardeau district, wliere he let a contract for  a 200-foot tunnel on the Black Diamond  claim, on the north fork of 'Lardeau river.  He says that there is considerable assessment work being done around Ferguson,  but the lack of capital is retarding the  development of what is undoubtedly a  very rich miueral belt. The Kaslo &  Slocan Railway Company have a party  of surveyors locating a, line from Argenta  to Ferguson and have purchased a half-  interest iu the Ferguson townsite. Mr.  Siegel returned by way of Slocan lake,  ancl on Tuesday visited the Rockland  claim, which is situated at the head of  Four Alile creek arrd is owned by Frank  Watson and judge Spinks. There is on  the property a _2-foot lead of fine looking gold-copper ore, and a force of men  were started to work yesterday driving a  tunnel to tap the vein.  CONCENTRATES.

Montreal Financial Panic Oyer.

Bi-U-Srai-S, August .2.���-The delay in  forming a new cabinet is due to the difficulty experienced in .selecting a new minister of war who will be both an officer  and pledged to the principle of personal  military service. M. de Nayer, who is  attempting to forin a ministry in. succession to that of M. Van Den Perebooni  Avhicli resigned yesterday on account of  the rejection of the government electoral  proposals, says that the new cabinet will  be unanimous in favor of an electoral bill  embodying proportionate representations.

Hawley  had, the lowest tender and was awarded  MORE  CHARGES   OF  BOODLINC  Against Yukon Officials.  The Canadian officials at Dawson City  have been accused of crookedness by numerous returning Klondikers, and the  matter has been taken up-in the Dominion house by sir Charles Hibbert Tupper.'  These charges haA'e had numerous substantiations of late, and the following  from the Colonist adds another specific  accusation:  The steamer City of Seattle passed  down to Seattle early on Sunday morning, having on board a big crowd of excursionists and also a number of passengers from Dawson and Atlin. Among  the arrivals from DaAvson were W. J.  AIcAlpiue, II. D. Gordon," A. Lobley and  S. B. AIcNeill and Avife, all of this city.  Air. McAlpine has been in the Klondike  for seA'eral years, being interested in No.  12 Eldorado, besides representing a wealthy syndicate. He brings the information that up to the time he left DaAvson  the Dominion goA'ernment had collected  royalty on gold A'alued at Jj>21,800,000. so  that unless the mine-OAvners of Dawson  are scrupulously honest, the output of  that district must have been at the A'ery  least $30,900,000. .  George Stuart, of Aylmer, oue of the  party taken iu by Ian Alorrison, of Victoria, also returned from Dawson by the  City of Seattle. Air. Stuart said the  party Avas much scattered; some Avere  doing Avell- others not. Several of the  party bought a claim for $1400, out of  which they got but $_00, it having being  salted. Air. Stuart asserts that there is  crookedness still among the Canadian  officials. Ou being asked for a specific  instance, he said that a AA'idow heard of  a .claim almost time expired, and told  another Avoman that she Avas going to  stake it the '.minute it ran out. The  Avoman told a male friend, and the male  friend rushed to the recorder's "office and  asked the clerk if he .would'take a third  interest in a,claim to record it a day before the time expired on it.

ROME* August %���Tlie campaign Avhieh  has resulted in the capture or killing of  eighty brigands withiu a few \vceks has  pi-adtically stamped out th_ ourse of Sardinia, but the worst of the brigaiid leaders, Aloni, arid.1 his band are still at largp.  Moni is a man of great ability, audacity  and cruelty. His baiid has killed thirty  one persons within the past eight years,  and tliere is now a reAvard of 20,000 lire  upon Iris head, but despite the fact that  the military forces of .Sardinia -are combined to run him down, he defies capture.  It was thought by tlie soldiers tliat they  had liiin and. his band Surroiuitled in a  forest, but a few days ago he mysteriously A'aiiished. Yesterday a manifesto  signed by Aloni Avas discovered next to a  church door near Sassar. The brigand  declared Avar upon his enemies, the gendarmes, police, military and others.  When, king Humbert A'isited Sardinia recently, Aloni addressed a letter to his  majesty asking for a safe conduct aud an  audience.   Baseball - Games Yesterday..  St. Louis 2, Boston 10.

Victoria, August 2.���The portfolio of  attorney-general  was  today   offered  to  Helmcken and refused.   It'aviis intimated  that in deference to the  knoAvn  conA'ict-  ions of Helmcken and his friends that the  goA'ci'iiment Avas prepared to modify its  policy with  respect to  Atlin  and other  things, but Helmcken still declined to take  the office.    An important desertion from  the  goA'erniueiit    party   is   announced.  Iliggins being asked tonight by  the Colonist if he was to receive the extra 'port-,  folio  provided   for in the estimates, authorized the statemen*- that he would not  accept airy portfolio iu  the present administration.    It is  believed  that  Henderson of Westminster had the refusal of  the attorney-generalship  but  was timid  about seeking re-election, as he  was  returned as an  independent  supporter of  Turner, but voted with the  Semlin   goA'ernment during the session of  the legislature.

Where Dreyfus Will be Tried;  London, August 2.���The Pall Mall Gazette says that the choice of the Salle de  la Revolution at Rennes as the place of  holding the Dreyfus court-martial is a  A'eritable calamity. The ceiling' of the  room is Ioav, being only 8A feet high, arid  nobodj' except the'members of the court  and the Avitnesses will be able to hear a  Avord. The journalists will be ranged in  sixteen rows behind the Avitnesses, and  owing to the execrable acoustics of the'  hall only those in.the first row or tAAr6  can follow the proceedings, making it  impossible to report the 'trial. There is  still time, says the Gazette, to change the  place of trial to the Lycee, Avhicli is close  to the' prison and handy in other re-?  spects, as being commodious and coni^  fortable, and it is lipped that the authorities .will listen to the prayer of the press  for this change. ,*  Disaffection in Jamaica.     v     ;    V  Kingston, Jamaica, August, 2.���-Popular resentment against the imperial loau;  is increasing and  finding significant. ex-:2  "eustomary to se-  tliis position in the  Bain's  selection  Avill  giA'e even more satisfaction because of liis  entire urraecjuaiutance with that profession.

KFiWi'Oh'f, llhothi Island, August 2.���A.  most un fortunate accident to the Coluuf-  bia today .marred; the pleasure of what  promis-di to be a thorough test of .speed  between that boat and tlie .Defender in.a'  nice topsail breeze, and-late this afternoon the new boat .was towed up to her  builder's works at Bristol, a total wreck  above decks. Her new steel inaiirmast  was bent double just about half Avay between tlie deck and masthead, and all  that remained of her magnificent spread  of canvas and specially made rigging was  piled up in a heap about the stump of the  mast. Practically all tliat remained was  the steel boom and the gxlis and tlie  bowsprit, and even tlie gaffs were damaged a trifle.

SAVINGS BANK BRANCH.  CURRENT RATE OF INTEREST PAID  SECRET   RAILWAY   REBATES.  Toronto Globe.  There is little moral doubt but that  our two trunk line railways/ in spite of  the action of the railway committee, of  the privy council, are still discriminating  in favor of the Standard Oil Company.  It is being elt'ected by means of secret rebates���an old weapon of the trust. Wc  have before us two freight bills of the  Canadian Pacific railway of consignments  of oil from Montreal to Quebec, in which  there is the regular column.for the rate,  but no rate appears thereon, and this, we  understand, is now the customary practice of the railway. The shipper, namely,  the.'Standard Oil Company, pays the  freight, so that no one knows what is  paid except the company and the railway. All that is known is that no independent company can pay the freight  nites which are imposed on them and  meet tlie prices of tire Standard Company along the lines of the two great  railways. Tlrat the rebate .must be considerable is shown by the fact that the  company has been able to materially increase the prices of benzine, gasoline and  illuminating oil, and yet hold the market  against all comers.  It. is difficult to conceive of any action  of .which the railways could be guilty  which is more.against the'public interest  and so completely subversive of the tacit  understanding on -which all railways are  built.* Railway corporations exhibit the  greatest unwillingness to recognise fche  real relations between them arid the public. They conveniently forget that not a  mile of track carr be laid without public  consent, aiid when that consent is obtained ib is ou bhe express condition that the  road shall treat everybody alike. It is a  common highway in every,real sense of  the phrase, and the greatest treason fco  the'public interest of which it can be  guilty is to favor one man's business to  the detriineht of another's. This is the  charge made against our .trunk lines by  the independent oil .dealers, and a number of facts support fche allegation. The  rale per hundred pounds on oil from  Windsor to Montreal was never higher  than 29^ cents. Suddenly, on the advent of the Standard Oil Company to  Canada, the rate was raised to 50i  cents. What was the reason for such a  monstrous and uuealled-for increase?  Tlrat is .something tlrat the public have a  right to know, and it has a right to know  whether the Standard company receives  a rebate that makes ifcs rates the old  fate, Avhile its coinp_-ifcor- have to .pay  -OLeents���  6f one thing the rtvilways and the company may he sure. The governiuenb endeavored to Undo the iiijustiee by the recent order of the railway committee forbidding discriminating rates, and it will  Hob be balked in its purpose by secret  understandings. |b would toe a confession off impoteir.e on the part Of the state  tliat We are not inelhred to make without  Is n,ow prepared to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Skaguay, U. S., Atlin,, B. C, and  Dawson City, Yuk,on. District.  a struggle that will, we feel sure, end in  the cnmplelo triumph of the public. It  should be the dirty of every man who has  any knowledge of the facts to communicate them to the minister of railways.  DEATH   OF   THE   "HERD   LADDIE."  Glasgow Herald.  The sad event took place in Glasgow orr  Wednesday morning, lie was attacked  by influenza, and, complications ensuing,  he passed quietly to his rest shortly after  nine o'clock. Wyllie's name was known  throughout the English speaking world.  His was the most outstanding'personality in the realm of draughts. He had  been selected to represent Scotland in the  international match; and his regret was  keen when hc found himself unable to'do  battle for his native land. Although his  physical power's had been failing of late  his mental faculties were little dimmed,  and he was capable up, almost to the last  of playing a splendid game at his favorite  pastirtre.  Wyllie, who was in his eighty-first  year, was born in Edinburgh in 1818.  He began his career as a public draughts  player iu 1832, when a youth of fourteen.  At that elate Mr. Porteous, a Biggar  farmer and cattle dealer, introduced him  to the Edinburgh cracks as his "Herd  Laddie," a sobriquet that stuck to Wyllie  all his days, arrd unquestionably helped  to draw more pointedly the attention of  the public to his wonderful skill at the  "dombrod." In 1S3S he engaged in his  lirst contest with the celebrated player  aud author, Andrew 'Anderson of Braid-  wood, the first of a series of five matches  betAveen the pair.

Wyllie has  twice visited ancl made long tours  through tho.United States and" Canada,  where his play Avas quite as successful as  in .this country," wifchthe exceptioii of his  last match witli that ^b_ight particular'  star, R. 10. Yates, who succeeded in defeating the veteran for the championship  of the world, but resigned it within a,  year to pursue his studios for the medical  profession. Wyllie has also visited Australia and New Zealand. In 1893 he was  defeated by Richard Jordan, now the  world's champion in a match "of twenty  games. In 1S04 he played a match of  ninety-four games with James Ferric for  the championship aud lost, the score be-  MISCELLANEOUS.

A-tor leaving tlie .scow at the eity wharf,  the tug will go to the foot of the lake to  bring in a boom of logs for the Nelson  Saw & Planing Mills.  Commencing with today, the steamers  Kokanee and International, running between Nelson and K:i..lo, will only blow  one whistle before leaving .port, which  will be five minutes before the time of  leaving. For some time past the steamers Moyie and Nelson have adopted this  rule, and to avoid the annoyance of so  many whistles blowing in the afternoon,  an arrangement lias been made to extend it to tlie Kokanee and International.  A lacrosse match will be played this  evening on the recreation grounds, commencing at 7 o'clock, between the team  selected to represent the Nelson lacrosse  club on the approaching visit to the  Coast and a team composed of old-time  lacrosse players who have handled the  stick in the East.  The Presbyterian Sunday school picnic  yesterday was a success financially and  otherwise. The attendance was the  largest that has attended any picnic up  tlie lake this season, and a pleasant day  was spent near Balfour. The party returned to Nelson about 7 o'clock.  I.ov. II. Frew will leave next Monday  for a three-weeks' holiday trip .to, Portland, Oregon. L During his absence Rev.  .J. Cleland of Sandon will occupy the" pulpit of the Presbyterian church.  Rev.

The cricket practices will never be a success until  the committee musters up sufficient enterprise to purchase a net.  Annie Wood, who is now in the provincial jail,, accused of stabbing '���Red"  McLeod at Argenta, will be brought up  on .Saturday before judge Forin to elect  whether she will have a speedy trial or  come up before the assi/.es.
