 NO RACE FOR THE "AMERICA" CUP  Yachts Becalmed Again.  Nrav York, October 5.���Again today  the sea refused Shamrock and Columbia  a field of conflict; again today the multitude, which went out to sea to watch the  contestants for tlie international yachting championship of tho world, returned  disappointed and not a little disgusted.  The question of supremacy of the two  great yachts is still as inucli an open  question as before they first met as the  contest today was in some respects more  of a fluke than that of Tuesday.  It w.ms a drifting match almost from  start to finish. Crossing the line with a  biee/.e of five knots an hour, it never  blew more than six, most of the time less  than three,' and part of the time not a  breath of air was stirring. After sailing  '1 hours anil 1*3 minutes, the yachts having  covered only twelve miles of the course  to the outer mark, the regatta committee  declared the race off, as it was manifestly  impossible, with the bree/.e then blowing,  for the licet racers to round tho stake  boat before the time limit expired, much  less to get back home again.  During the time in which the yachts  were at it, the wind which carried them  dead before it over tlie line hail hauled  around, until, at the finish, they were  beating into its teeth. While the wind  held astern Columbia steadily outfooted  .her rival until she was fully half a mile  ahead, but in the shifting bafiliiig winds,  t'nit followed during the last three hours,  with the great single stickers tacking  and beating and jibbing to catch every  stroke, of the wind, with fortune helping  one about as much as the other, .Shamrock gradually worked her way up until,  when the race was declared oil', the two  boats were about on even terms, Shamrock perhaps half a length ahead, but so  close was Columbia that captain Barr  could have thrown a biscuit to the foreigner from over the sea.  The only lesson learned by the nautical  sharps from today's trial of the abilities  of the two boats is that in light weather  conditions Columbia is the superior in  running and tacking and Shamrock better  in beating. There has yet been no indication of'what either boat can do in a  piping wholesale breeze. So gentle were  the crestless pulsating seas that any sort  of harbor or river craft could venture  out with impunity, and a vast colony of  boats, ocean going steamers, yachts, tugs,  sidewheelers and sailing vessels gathered  around the red hulk of the Sandv  Hook  nn  FKTDAY MORNING, OCTOBER G,  185)9.  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $5 A YEAR; WEEKLY, $2.  last in order to beat the head ofthe yacht  up. Only two men were busy easing  sheets and tightening halyards when the  wind began to die and the great baloons  of canvass forward collapsed like meal-  sacks. At the same time the wind canted a. little and Columbia concluded to  change her tactics, took in her spinnaker  and tried reaching, leaving the baloon  .jib set.- It was a challenger to Shamrock  on her best point of sailing and captain  Hogarth eagerly accepted the gauntlet.  Then they went heeling over toward  the Long Island shot and Columbia continued to increase her lead. Shamrock  attempted to crowd on a little more  canvas by setting her stay sail, but it  only kept the wind from her balloon and  the sail hung from the stay as light and  lifeless as n wet rag. In a few* minutes  she took it down. As tliey approached  the Long Island shore, the bree/.u lifted a  moment, then closed down again, and the  yachts continued to drift.  The great ocean liner Auguste Victoria  of the Hamburg-American line, outward  bound to Southampton, broke through  the misty circle where the yachts were  battling for supremacy and slowed down  for a. moment to let the passengers who  lined the rail catch a glimpse of the contest, then she clipped her flag and steamed  on. A few minutes later the Ciinard liner  Servia, -with the Union Jack at half rail,  appeared as if. by magic through the outer  ledge of the curtain and came following  into port. In vain the patrol boats whistled tlieir warning, but she swung slightly outward as she came on straight  through the course, dipped her flag as she  got abeam of the racers, and disappeared,  like, a strike 'three-quarters of a mile to  leeward. Columbia got most of the wash  from the big trans-Atlantic liner, bobbing on the huge swell as it went under  her and spilling much wind out of her  sails. ..  Meantime the excursion fleet was pushing toward the limit mark. When they  got there they waited for au hour, but  the champions did hot come.;.. Through  the mist they could just-be made out  looking like high-peaked circus' tents.  ���.'|'hen,n when the wind  hauled  around  to  If"'  I: .

As soon as the committee boat had  hoisted the signal letters "D������ L," making  the course fifteen miles, southeast by  south, dead before the wind and return,  a pulling tug steamed straight out to sea  to plant tlie outer mark, which neither  racers were destined to round today.  .There.was some pretty man��uvcrs bo-  hind the lino before the start. But got  across in the smoke of tho last gun, the  white boanty a length ahead and in tlie  windward berth. The wind Was blowing  hardly five knots. Ab she crossed, the  green boat broke out her spinnaker,  which was in steps. It was an English  fashion to hoist this sail from the boom,  and Shamrock, iti her trials, clung to the  way beyond the seas, but since her arrival  she had learned many Yankee tricks, and  breaking out the spinnaker is one of  them,  Tiie cupdefender was a little slow in  getting her big bellying sail out and this  somewhat dampened the ardor of tlie  patriotic throng of Americans, wlio love  nothing so much as forehandedness and  Snap; but sixty seconds later both were  ou even terms fleeing before the wind,  wing and wing, spinnaker balancing  mainsail and bulging jib drawn forward.  The laxy bree/.e carried the big yachts  down the wind at a snail's pace. For almost an hour tlie spectators on the excursion .boats watched them drift.  The only cheering feature of the situation for the majority of onlookers was  that Columbia steadily gained ground,  inch by inch as'she crept along. .At the  end of fifteenniinutes several lengths of  ���clear water showed between her and her  great rival.

The Water between thein  grew iiaiTOWei' and narrower until she  was close enough to pass a linei aboard���  Everybody aboard the excursion fleet expected her to cross Shamrock's bow, but  captain Baw found it too lisky, and as  tlie Ainerieali champion rose in a qneeiily  way on a. heavy swell, he put his helm  down and caine over on the starboard  tauk under Shamrock's fee. It wtos a dis.-*  appointingyiuovo for the patriots. Although Cohiinbiji had her nose in front,  the challenger hipped her arid held, her  weather gauge, .lust at this instant the  signal went up declaring the race off,and  before the astonished spectators realized  what had .happened thoy saw both  yachts, whose skipper had evidently been  waiting for the signal, turn about, and  head for hoilie.  The sea was a picture. A full rigged  ship, with all her royals set, was sailing  proudly out to sea, while out to the westward, in the direct track of the excursion  fleet as the vessels headed straight for  home, the North Atlantic squadron, bound  for Hampton Roads, was majestically  bearing down. The big men-of-war svei-e  moving in squared formation ahead, their  white sides glistening, their yellow  superstructures and smoke belching  stacks gilded into gold by the  slanting     rays     of     the     sun. As  tlie excursion fleet moved toward  them, a string of signal flags ��� fluttered  from the flagship, the armored cruiser  New York, and the squadron chauged  formation, line abreast, and came on as  if to annihilate the fleet. But none of  the vessels were frightened. They went  by with their whistles shrieking delight,  and the band:* playing patriotic airs..  One of the police patrol.boats paused to  push-its nose under the towering steel  sides of the New .York aud bark out a  salute of thirteen guns to rear admiral  Sampson. The admiral roared out his  response gun for gun. Then the fleet,  which liad slowed up to Avitness the spectacle, hove to.  Commodore George S. Scott of the Quebec Yacht Club, who heads a party f.iom  Quebec to see the yacht races, does not  think that an opportunity was afforded  by the race on Tuesday to determine  which is the better boat. "What we  need," said the commodore, "is an eight-  een-knot breeze. The race over the lirst  half yesterday was fairly exciting, but  after the wind died out there Avas no AAray  to toll Avhich yacht was the better.  Shamrock had rather the better handling, but at the same time she had better  luck in catching the fluffy Avinds. I look  to see close matches right through. I  don't belie\'e three races will settle it; it  will' probably take the five."  FERGUSON IS A MINING CENTRE  Around Which are Promising Properties.  Ferguson, October 2.���An important  deal was put through last Aveek by which  Frank Appicost disposed of his half interest iu the Triune, the consideration  being $5000 cash. The Triune is situated  above the Free Coinage, being on the  same lead as the Silver Cup, Sunshine,  Towser, and other Avell-known locations.  This makes the second deal Avhich has  been put through for property on that  lead with in* two weeks, the Towser having  been sold to Chicago parties for .$4.0,000  only a short time since. Tliere has been  a good strike on the Sih'er Cup.- Tlie  company has been running a long crosscut tunnel to tap the lead at a good  depth. They tapped the lead a few days  ago and struck eighteen inches of high  grade shipping ore. Charles Copp and  Frank Yaletti brought in samples from  an important discovery made by them on  the head of Haskins creek. They report  from four to live feet of solid galena.  oA-er the  province  being  present.    Hon.  Mr. Fisher Avent down to Victoria today.  A Mining Man Wlio Means Business.

The London  Truth states that one Cosgrove was recently appointed attendant in the male  Aviii'd of Dungannon Union Infirmary at  the princely salary of sixpence a week  anil his rations. It may not seem strange  to Nelson readers that Cosgrove " struck"  for higher wages and threatened to resign unless he aviis paid at the rate of sixpence a day. The guardians of the union  Avere taken aback at liis audacity and attributed it to the pernicious influence of  newspapers and talked sadly about having to increase the rates. As nobody  else could be found to take over the  lucrative job, tlie guardians nominated  a deputation to confer with Cosgrove and  endeavor ro persuade hint to reduce his  exorbitant demand.

No> ���I'i  Thk Coast papers are publishing all  ���soi'fca of rubbisli regarding: the dift'orences  existing in the Slocan between mine  managers and mine workers. The only  diJTerenee that exists is one.of fifty cents  a day for skilled 'miners. Tho mine malingers, who, by tho way, iii .several in-  stiiuees are acting contrary Ui the'wishes  of  shareholders in  the  companies  they  are managing, oifer skilled miners  $3 Toy  the eight-hour  day  underground, which  the miners  refuse.      The  minors  want  $3.50 a day.    Before tlie shutdown ofthe  mines,  in  June  last,  the   Slocan  niines  were shipping  between  3000   and  4000  tons of ore a mon tli, and not 2000  tons a  day,  as  the  Coast  papers make it.    At  the time  of the shutdown, there avc re  probably 1500 men employed  iu  all  the  Slocan mines: now there aie not lo exceed  500 employed, but they are  getting the  same wages as they "were  paid  prior  to  the shutdown, th.at  is  $8.50 a day for  initiers and"$''J a day for muckers.    There  have not been unv disturbances, although  one uiviiwm uj, one mine, (une jWnty jluiLh  at'Silverton) endeavored to make it "appear thattheir property and the persons  of their employees were in danger. The  effort did not succeed, as the provincial  authorities were satisfied that the local  constables could maintain .order and  protect property without tlio assistance  of "specials," armed and paid by private  individuals. The mine managers have  endeavored to secure men in Eastern  Canada and in Great Britain, but all  their efforts have proved abortive, and  they now threaten to suspend work for-  the winter.  Latislv the Canadian Pacific raihvay  has had trouble with its employees over  the question of wages, and  now has a  strike on its  hands.    The  machine-shop  mon on the line between Winnipeg and  Vancouver are said to boon strike. Were  the management of that company to do  .as-the-managcrs-oi-some-of-the"mines"irr  Kootenay are doing, the operation of the  road   would  be  suspended   indefinitely.  But the managers of the Canadian Pacific  Avill confer Avitli  the men  under them,  and  adjust  the  differences;   always, of  course, getting tho best terms tliey  can  for the  company.    But the  mine managers who threaten to suspend all  work  on the mines in their charge if they cannot get their own Avay are not business  men, as a rule, avIio Avere successful in tlie  pursuits they followed   before   tliey became mine managers.    How many members of either the .Slocan Silver-Lund Mines  Association or tho .Nelson District Mine  Owners' Association, wurc successful business .men before they bceatne mine managers* fipud how  many of them   can  be  elitssed   as   successful   mine   managers  today? __^   NoTAViTiJS'i'ANWJXa   the contradictions  of the regularly subsidized  organ ofthe  Kelson District   Mine  Owners'   Association,  it is well knOAVn   that prominent  members of tho association  have stated  that tlie one object of the association. is  to break up the miners' unions and drive  the union men  out of the country.   A  Aveakness of the members of the association is'that  they are addicted  to  telling  untruths.    They  make  statements that  do not appear avoII Avhen  printed, and  hasten  to contradict them.    Wei e they  straightforward,   they   would   at   least  have the i e..pcct of those avJjo differ with'  them ; but they are not truthful, and  they therefore appear contemptible to  men who are in a position to be independent.  Till'"* Nelson Miner says that-day by  day the industrial situation in Kootenay  groAvs Avor.se. It says that Avhile mining  lias not been Avholly suspended, it is  steadily growing le.^s, and tho Victoria,  Colonist prefers to believe such rot as  against the self-evident fact that there is  more actual mining���both developing  and producing���in East and West Kootenay today than at this time last year.  Th-jre is no sign of a sus* e.sion of niining around liossland, Nelson, Ainswortli,  New Denver, Slocan City, Moyie,.Ferguson, Kort Steele, Windermere, or in any  of the camps in North and East Kootenay. More Avork is being done around  S union, SiI\'orton, and Kaslo than at any  time during tlie last three months.  Til*!* mine managers Avho haA'e been  successful in their undertakings, here and  elsewhere, are working, the properties  Avhich they control, believing that this is  not an opportune time to enter into a  conflict Avith their men over the Avage  question. They Iciioav that miners are in  demand ; that there is a scarcity of laborers; and that the men are only taking  advantage of their opportunity. Nothing succeeds like success.  Tub Triuuxe has asserted that the  athletic young men of Nelson and Boss-  land excelled in all outdoor sports ; that  they could hold their own against the  athletic young men of all the Coast cities  combined. AVe beg the privilege of  amending that assertion. The athletic  yonng.me'n of British Cohunbia can hold  their own in all outdoor sports against  the athletic young men of all. Canada.  When" the Turner croAvd Avere in  poAver, the Vancouver World'rabidly, opposed cA-cry attempt to run provincial  politics on party lines. Now that the  Turner crowd are in opposition, the  Woi Id is labidly in  faA*or of that idea.  HUDSON'S BAY  COMPANY.  ���4  INCORPORATED 1S70.

We.are usually charged Avith being a  nation of shopkeepers and money-grubbers. Tlie'iiulictmmit is, perhaps, lai-gely  true. Btit clearly Ave are something besides���a great many things besides. No  people may be rightly -judged by a single  characteristic, however dominant that  ��� may seem, if it be true that wealthy  Americans are conspicuously and exceptionally'public spirited, Ave find a .sufficient offset to their shopkeeping and  money-grubbing propensities; and if this  "public spirit be found to exist, that, and  not the shopkeeping and money-grubbing  habit, should be rigidly regarded as tho  signilicant characteristic.  The Rev. Dr. Hantington, in an address  before  college  students  last year, said:  "Probably nowhere in the world is wealth  more Avidely used  for  the public Avelfare  than, in  the  United States.    Tliis holds  true not only in respect of gifts and benefactions, but of  all   well-considered bona  lide  investments."    Frederick   Harrison,  ia    the   Contemporary    Review,    says :  "Au example of. public spirit is far more  common in the, United States than in I_u-  ' rope."    In England the wealthy occasionally let the public view their galleries and  their racehorses.    Jn America tliey give  generously     to    univei'fities,     libraries,  and   museums.

The   benei'netions  are  made  deliberately, wisely, and conscientiously  for that purpose.    The spirit behind them  is exactly opposite to that which prevails  among   the; wealthy  peoplo  of Europe^  Tliere   tho  Kvhole, social'. and  economic:  policy, 'established and sanctioned-by* thfe  precedent of 'many generations-is to keep;  class lines sharply drawn aiid to maintain  them with yielding rigidity.*  There the  rich must be kept rich, the poor must be  kept poor. There the rich may receive the  highest  education,   the   poor   must  not  be     too    [much     enlightened.       There  mental     accomplishments      and      high  achievements are not passports to  social  recognition ; here, on a larger scale, they  are.

It is a great  overshadowing spirit of simple human  .fellowship and kindness. It is born of  the democracy and prosperity of tlie  people, and it exhibits its force largely in  proportion to the extent of their means  in money.  One of these-forms is that which shows  in benefactions for the education aud uplifting of the masses. In the .absence of  such a spirit the wealthy would argue,  as thoy do in Europe: "If we educate  .and eleA-ate tho poor, they will become,  in time, so intelligent, so powerful  through cooperation in society, business,  economics, and politics, that our own  poAver, held through wealth, will be  overthrown, our money-earning facilities  curtailed, our possessions themselves, imperiled, and ourselves treated to the guillotine as were the aristocrats of France."  But they are wiser and broader than  that. By their benefactions to educate  the masses they say: "If Ave educate  and elevate the poor, they Avill come intelligently to a solution of the problems  that are iioav menacing Avealth, society,  and even the government itself.

That is the fundamental  difference between tlie rich of Europe  and the rich of America.  With such a spirit as tliis, manifesting  itself so wisely and abundantly, and producing results so tangible and beneficial,  no threat to the stability of American institutions can amount to a peril. The  rich, in large numbers, are deliberately  placing the power of othe nation in the  hands of the poor. That is public spirit  of the truest order, and that is tlie salient  characteristics of the dominant American  spirit. "  A Flourishing Mining Town.  F. .T. Smyth, editor of the Moyie Leader,  was in Nelson yesterday. Speaking of  Moyie, he said tliat the town was nourishing ; thafcthere were over 150 men employed in tlie Lake .Shore and St. Eugene  mines .alone, all of whom were getting  the Kootenay standard wage���$'3.50 for  miners and .$3 for muckers���for the  eight-hour day. Real estate was advancing in price, lots in the main street  selling as high as $700 each. This statement by Mr. Smyth is not in accord with  the dismal howl raised by the Nelson  Miner and believed by the Victoria Colonist, but it is a statement of fact, nevertheless.

Since April  1st there liave been MO plumbing permits  granted, and a reasonable estimate of the  charges for the work performed is given  at $1'".QUO. During the same period there  have been Dl permits issued for connections to be made with the sewers, the cost  of Avhich to tlie property owners is estimated at $.'i()00. As there is almost as  much work yet remaining to be done,and  winter is but a few weeks oil', the  plumbers of the city should be reasonably happy.  Questions For M. S. Davys to Answer.  M. S. Davys says he did not discriminate against union mon when he was in a  position to hire men, and that he was  one of the lirst members of the Mine  Owners' Association. We know that Mr.  Davys is strongly opposed to labor unions, and has been ever since he came to  Kootenay. Tliat he allowed union men  to work in the Silver King mine when he  was its superintendent was because he  could not help himself. Mr. Davys may  have been a member of the Mine,  Owners' Association, an organization  that died from, inocuons desuetude  some twelve months ago; but is he a  member- oi' the Nelson District Mine  Owners' Association, of which,!. J. Gamp-  bell and H. E. Croasdaile are shining  lights? If so, when did he become a  member, aud why? "       '  13wart <& Carrie have awarded W. G.

On Friday of last week the citizens of  Ferguson turned out en masse to welcome the return of John" Q. MeKinnon  and his bride, who was a Miss Walker of  Revelstoke. Mr. MeKinnon was one of  the original owners in the famous Enterprise mine, on Ten-mile, Slocan district.  The city is still without a garbage  ground.
