 COLUMBIA WON THE FIRST HEAT  In the  Great Yacht Race.  New   York,  October  10.���The  crews  of both yachts had breakfast  early, and  when they "turned to" about six   it  was  with  a  Avill, for  in  spite  of   the  ha/.y  weather, there was a good  breeze  from  the eastward, whieli promised to increase  and give the yachts a good  race  at Inst.  Jibs and stay sails were up and  hatches  put  on,   both   latched   and  everything  made snug before nine o'clock.    At  \):l~>  Columbia cast olT. from her moorings and  was taken in tow.    Shamrock started in  tow  later.      Covers  were  kept  on   the  mainsails and club topsails to keep   them  dry until tlie last moment, and there was  ���just enough fine l-ain  to  dampen   thorn..  At  10   o'clock   Columbia's   crow   began  hoisting tlie mainsail.      It was set in live  minutes.    Shamrock's  mainsail began to  go up at the same time, but  it was fully  fifteen minutes before  the  sail   was sei;.  D   When the yachts were ready  the  wind  was  fairly  steady  from   the   eastward,  blowing  about  ten   miles  an   hour, the  = water  smooth   and   sky  cloudy.      Two  miles was about the limit of observation,  owing to heavy mists.  At 10:50 both yachts cast off their tow  lines,   broke  out   their jibs,  and  mastheaded   their     No.     2    club     topsails.  Columbia also sent up her  baby jib topsail on the stay.    At the same  time the  committee boat, anchored  due  south  of  the  Sand   Hook  lightship,  sent up  the  course  signal.    It   was  east,  making   a  beat dead to windward for the yachts of  fifteen miles, and it run back if the  wind  held from  the .same"quarter.     The  regatta   committee    meant  business   this  time, for a few minutes later they started a tug  to  log  off the  course,  and  at  10:4") the preparatory  signal  was made.  Both  yachts then   began  manoeuvering  for position.    At 10:55,  when the  warning signal was given, they were  playing  for   a   weather    berth    to   the    northward   of    the    line,    Shamrock   breaking   out  her   stay    sail   at   this    time.  When       two       minutes       were      left  befoi-o the starting  signals, both  yachts  weie heading, a couple of lengths  apart,  to westwaid, Avith booms to port, Columbia to  windward.    Shamiock  began  to  keep for the committee boat, which  Avas  lying at the south end of the line, captain  Hogarth's intention appaiently being to  stop Columbia, then a length or so astern.  Shamiock had run parallel with the line  to nearly the  centre of it.    She held x,o  that course until neatly OArertothe lightship before she began to lull' to cross the  line.    Captain Barr had Columbia Avell in  hand, being at the time  a good  length  astern.     He  began to luff the  moment  Hogarth    did,   and   shooting   Columbia  across. Shamrock's   wake,   he   sent   her  across the line more thivu fifty yards to  Avindward  of the  challenger, and  Avitli  such a good  ovorlap on her tluit according       to       the       official       time      she  aviis   only   three   seconds   astern.     The  official time of  the race  was: Sharmock  11.01.02, Columbia 11 01.0(3.    Both yachts  Avere now close hauled  ou the  starboatd  tack and were carrying exactly the same  sail,  namely  mainsail,   club-top'-ail,  "jib,  foresail and baby-jib topsail.    As soon as  sheets   were  trimmed  all  hands  except  the  men  stationed  at   the  head   sheets  jumped for the weather sido and huddled  close  down  to  the starboatd rail, Avhile  the   skippers   Aval cited   each  other  like  haAvks.    There Ave^e not. many excursion  steamers out in time to see the start.  Those ou board the small  fleet  had a  splendid  vieAV  of the start, and  for ten  minutes the friends of both yachts were  someAvhat anxious ; after that, it was all  over but the shouting.    In  five minutes  Columbia had Avidened  the  distance  to  av ind ward between hei self and Shamiock  ���fully-a-length.���She-heeled���more-than-  the latter boat, but her sails Avere Jill full  and she wtis pointing higher from  the  moment pshe started.    Captain  Hogarth,  thinking his boat Avould be able  to  out-  foot Columbia sufficiently to tack across  he-r bow a little later, gaA'o her  a good  rap   full.      The   green   boat   lesponded  nobly, and to some it appeared that she  Avas passing Columbia very fast.    So site  was, but she was losing windward ground  every minute.    When Shamrock tacked  to port at 11:15, and Columbia 30 seconds  later, it   was   seen   that   Barr   had    so  placed his boat  on  the weather bow of  Shamrock as to spill the back wind into  Shamrock's sails.    Hogarth  AA'as  obliged  to  keep broad  off for about thirty seconds to get  out from  under  Columbia's  lee.    By 11.20 the Bristol boat aviis quite  , an; eighth of a in He to tlie Avindward and '  OutfootiUg her rival all the time.    Captain .Hogarth,   finding*   tliat  Shamrock  '. simply would not point as high as Columbia, flattened down his sheets as hard  as he dared, and had to be contented  Avith giving her a good full and letting  lier go at that. . At ll;i5:30, when Shamrock tacked to port, Columbia was fully  a quarter of a mile to the windward of  her, Avhen the latter tacke# several seconds.later.    Captain Hog'arth Avtis growing desperate and he resorted to his short  "tacking tactics in hopes  that his boat  would for-reaeh sufficiently to make a  material gain to the "windward.     Some  idea may be gathered of the quick Avork  that'followed when it is stated that both  yachts made several tacks iu the next  four   minutes   and    forty-five   seconds,  Shamrock ahvays tacking first.  At the conclusion of this marine duel  between the single-stickers Hogarth  found himself farther to leewaid than  ever, Columbia having been quicker iu  stays   and   a   better  forc-reacher.     At  **v.  TUESDAY MORNING, OCTOBER IT, 1899.  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH COLUMBIA.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $5 A YEAR; WEEKLY, $2.  11.50.55 Shamrock settled doAvn again to  business on the port tack, and Columbia,  after standing on two minutes longer,  came about to the same tack. .It aviis  found the Bristol boat aviis half-a-niile  dead to Avindward of her rival. In three  more tacks Columbia still increased her  windward lead. Shamrock's people at  1.55 took in her baby-jib topsail, hoping,  perhaps, that she might point higher, but  it Avas evidently in vain for in ten niin-  utesthey set the sail back again. It was  taken in twenty minutes later for a few  minutes.  Each yacht made tAventy-two tacks in  windward work, and in  all these  Shamrock  took  the  initiative.    Captain Ban-  waited     for    Hogarth    to    tack,    and  with     but     one     or     two    exceptions  he put the Columbia about Avithin  three  seconds   of  the   other boat.      Tlie  last  half dozen   tacks  Avere longer  than  the  others.    The outer mark Avhich had been  obscured   by  mist   aviis A'isable   after  1  o'clock'.    The Avind grew lighter as  they  approached,  but it  increased in  force a  little as Columbia made her last  tack at  l._G. 30.    She  looked  very  handsome as  she  approached the mark  on  the  port  tack, a couple of her smooth bronze bingle  plates   showing   on   her   Aveather   side.  Smartly the crew launched Ijer spinnaker  boom out to port _ before  she  had fairly  made the tui'it and squared away on her  homeward   course,   the  gieat   sail   was  broken out from steps, the same moment,  the main boom sailing far off to starboard.  They Avere actually eighty-five seconds  setting the spinnaker.    Shamrock's  men  beat them fiAre seconds in this Avork.  The  time at the turn Avas : Columbia, 1.18.19 ;  Shamiock 1.08 08.    This shows Columbia  was 9 minutes,  19  seconds ahead  Avhen  she tounded the maik.    The elapse time  of Columbia for 15 miles Ava*"* two  hours,  17   minutes,    13   seconds ;   for    Shamrock,     2      houts,      57      minutes,      31  seconds, shoAving  that   Columbia's  gain  on   the  actual  start was  9  minutes, 17  seconds.    This  Avas a  great a ictory for  both yachts had coveted the distance in a  steady bieeze, aud at no time  Avere they  far enough apart to benefit by any puff  of Avind.  The official time Avas Columbia, 3.51.59 ;  Shamrock, 4.05.10. The official summary  was : Elapsed time of Columbia, from the  outer maik to tho finish Avas 2 hours, (5  minutes, 40 seconds r Shamiock 2 hours,  7 minutes, 2 seconds, had gained 22  seconds.  LITIGANTS INCONVENIENCED BY  A Cold-Footed Judge.  Dm ing   the   healing  of   the  ease   of  Thompson A's. Byers iii the county court  yesterday, judge Foi in  showed  Iioav in-  considetate he could be.    The case being  tried was au action by some Avorkingmeu  to secure a\ages for Avoik performed for  the Goat River Lumber  Company.    The  defendant,   Hamilton   Byers,  entered   a  defence that he was not the Goat River  Lumber Campany, and thetefore AA'as not  liable.    George A.  Bigelow, avIio  figured  as manager of the lumber  company, AA'as  on the stand giving evidence Avhen, without fur thei   cetemony, judge  Foi in rose  and  said  that  the  court-room  Avas too  cold,  and   that   he  would  adjourn  the  court forthAvith sine die.   The effect of  this AA'as that the  case then  being proceeded- with-Avas brought to-an���end,-and-  tho  AA'oikmen who  were  seeking to recover Avages, after a considerable outlay,  Aveie dcpiiAed of all benefit  of  their expenditures and preparations, because the  presiding judge Avould not inconvenience  himself to  listen  to the evidence it had  cost them so  much  to  bring into court.  The heating arrangements of the court-  hoiibe are not  what they should be, but  they are not bad enough to justify such  treatment  as judge  Forin gave  to  the  parties   in   the   suit   of   Thompson   vs.  Byers. o   RAILWAY   AND    STEAMBOAT  NOTES.  Word has been received from Mont-  leal to stop all construction Avork Avhich  the Canadian Pacific Railway Company  has in hand in the Lai do district. A  force of close upon 300 men -was employed on this work, and the gradiiig of the  road Avas ab-jut completed to Duncan  City. It is said that the construction  work will be resumed in the spring.  Track laying on the Nelson & Bedlington railway will be completed next week,  when the junction with' the Crow's Nest-  Pass road will be reached. Port Hill,  Idaho, and Rykei'tj B. C, now have railway connection Avith the world via Bonner's Ferry. '  Working Claims on Forty-Nine Creek.  A. H. Kelly has commenced Avork ou  the Red Top and May mineral claims, on  Forty-nine creek. Tliese claims are situated about tAvo miles above the old  workings of the Nelson Hydraulic Company. A large ledge has been exposed  ou the May, it being betAveen twelve and  fourteen feet Avide Avhen crosscut. About  four feet of this ledge is heavily mineralized. .The ledge has been stripped for  about 800 feet. No assays have yet been  made on the ore.  THIRTY-FIVE COOP ANDTRUEMEN  Have Volunteered.  When captain Hodgins of the Nelson  company of the Rocky Mountain Rifles  closed his office" last night, thirty-five  good and true men had volunteered for  service in the Canadian contingent for  active service against the Boers in Soutli  Africa. Exclusive of three of the* company's officers, the following aro the  names of those volunteering": AV. J. G.  Dickson, C. E. Beasley, G. J. Fader, F.  Bovd, H. Gervan, F. W. Smith, C. H.  White, G.

William Orr Paterson, J. Abr  bott and J. Ryan.  Sixteen of the above named presented  themselves for medical examinatioii before Dr. G. H. H. Symouds, Avho at one  time Avas a surgeon of the naval reserves-  and nine Avere passed as being up to the  standard .required. The doctor Avas  pretty busy for part of the day, as from  ten to twenty minutes are required for  each examination. Captain Hodgins is  anxious that all avIio have volunteered  shall appeal" for examination today.  -'  It is understood that members of the  rifle company willbe given the prefer^  ence in making up the quota allotted to  Nelson, civilians ranking second. There  would be no trouble iu raising a full company in Nelson, and from reports received from Rossland and Kaslo, the boys in  these toAvns are eqimlly patriotic.  SHORT BITS OF NELSON NEWS.

Canadian Good Enough.  -Toionto TUcgi.tm  BOERS MEET WITH A REVERSE  Censorship on Transvaal News.  'London, October 17.���The AA'ar news is  still in the region of a surmise. There  are rumors that the Boers lnwe beeu repulsed at Mafeking and are attacking  Vryburg. A CapetoAvn paper has a dispatch from the Orange river stating that  the telegraph Avires have been cut betAveen Vryburg and Kimberley, and it is  believed that the  Boers  are  taking ad-  the grand jury to bring in a true bill, and  thus laid the foundation of the proceedings, Avhich, after his departure from the    vantage of the presence of a large gath-  '"  ' '        "   " "      ering  of   disloyal   farmers at Vryburg,  celebrating  Nachtmaalt,  to   attiick the  ollice of attorney-general, Avere carried to  a, successful issue by tlie deputy  whom he brought from Manitoba. If  Joseph Martin had no other faults  he Avould bo disqualified for honors at  the hands of sir Wilfrid Laurier by the  public zeal which he displayed in his  effort to put a corporation in the dock.  The imagination staggers at the possibility of the attorney-general of Ontario  prosecuting a corporation for the negligence Avhich murders humble, Canadians.  Surely Joseph Martin is no true Liberal  or he avouId fawn upon the influences  which he has fought in the public interest, .and could thus earn a high rank  Avith the corporation favorites Avhoin sir-  Wilfrid .Laurier delights'to honor.

London,   October    IC���The    Colonial  office issued this evening the correspondence  between <Mr. Chamberlain and  sir  Alfred Milner, British high commissioner  iu SoUth Africa, respecting the Transvaal  controversy, from September 8th to October 12th.  The salient points of the principal despatches, hoAvever, have been already published, but some of the telegrams  treating  of  side  issues  are  interesting.   ���  For instance the  governor of Natal, sir  Walter Francis Healy-Hutchiuson, .wired:  Mr. Chamberlain on October 2nd  as fol-.   -  lows:"'  Dinusula reports *chat  natives  in  the Vyryheid  district  of TraitsA'aal are  becoming desperate, and-it is feared that  they Avill not remain quiet inuch, longer. v.

The Gi'anite mine on Eagle creek lias  been closed, so it is said, because the  union men working there refused to accept .$3 a day, the management claiming  that the Union alloAVS its members to  work in the Silver King for that rate,  and that it is unfair to require;the Granite, to pay $3.50. The'unions have been  consistent and conservative in this  trouble. They have merely asked-that  tlie rate of wages prevailing, before the  eight-hour law became effective should  continue to be paid. Tliey have alloAved  each mine and camp to stand on its oavu  bottom ; they haAre not insisted on^any  arbitrary/changes.  NKl.SON, has long enjoyedj almost a  monopoly of the court business of southern Kootenay, and Yale, but if a change  is not made in the care of the court-room'  much of the business now transacted here  Avill, be ' transferred ��� to Rossland on the.  completion of the new court-house at  that town. Latter-day judges are not  used to roughing it, and Avhen tliey come  to a toAvn as pi*etent-ious as .Nelson* is  they expect, at least, ordinary comforts  while transacting public business. The  court-house at Nelson AA'as built for a  one-horse toA\-n, and judging from the  complaints made by the judges avIio are  compelled to hold court here, the rooms  used for court purposes are kept as they  might be in a one-horse toAvn.

At tlie time the Duncan Mines syndicate acquired the Granite mine, tlie Silver King miners Avere getting but three  dollars a day, yet the Duncan Mines  "iTeople-did-Hot^lJjcjlJt "to-paying three  dollars and fifty cents a day on the  Gi'anite.

If it is a  good one noAV, Avhy was it not a good one  before the eight-hour law Avent into effect?  The Silver King mine at Nelson  has not  paid more than $3 a day since the present company assumed control' the AA'ages  at the mine having been reduced from  $3..50 to $3 some five years ago, yet every  other mine in  Nelson  district paid '$3.50  right aloug.    Why did not the managers  of these niines make the reduction  to  $3  before the passage oi* the eight-hour law?  Tkk mine managers in Kootenay are;  diA'idcd into tAvo camps.

A number of swindlers are now closing  their full season at the agricultural fairs,  jind will soon return to their homes in the  cities, having done quite well in August  and September and thus far in October.  One of the leading operators was interviewed by tlie New York Sun. He said:  "Working the jays tliis autumn has  paid well.' Everybody seemed to have  money to burn at the agricultural fairs,  and our business was dead easy. Those  who 'operated games of chance cleared  big money, in spite of the fact that  heavy charges had to be paid for gambling privileges. But, whore they could  gej- in, $5000 was nothing to pay for a fill]  gambling privilege for four or five day?..  "It was nothing to see eighteen gambling tables running on a fair ground in  the open air during September. What  ���wtis tho favorite game? I think jack-pot  probably caught more people .and made  the most money. NO, it wasn't -poker, or  anything like that. It was betting on a  card with a doubling-up privilege for the  banker, and many a dollar was lost by  the countrymen who hadn't enough  money to double-up so they dropped all.  I have been following tlie fail's for years  at various games, but I n'ever;before, saw  as many rolls or money among the farmers as tliis season. And they played  it, too.  lil think theL easiest thing this year  .was the old tobacco box trick. A capper  of mine had a neat silver box. ILe'd  ' stand off a, farmer and show him the  , trick, that is, show him how -fco open the  box. Then Prt come along dressed like a  farmer, I'd fall in with the pair. Capper would show me the box. I'd fail to  open it. Then I'd offer to bet a ten-dollar bill no one else could open it. The  .guy would jump at the chance, (lash his  roll, and we'd put up ten each. I'd look  at the box, give it a dead-lock turn, which  the jny'd not see, and hand it back .to  him. Then he'd go to work. Of course,  he couldn't open it under the new conditions, and he'd lose. To take in ten jays  a day wouldn't be much of a job for five  hours. I recollect one jay I had my  doubts about. Ho' was dangerous looking. He liad up his ten and 1 had covered it. It looked lilje his bottom stake, I  imagined he had a gun, so I ventured  another bet of ten against his pistol lie  couldn't open the box if I couldn't. To  my surprise he pulled a fiveshootcr bulldog from his hip pocket, and the capper  held all the stakes. 'Well, sir, it nearly  took the capper's breath away, but we  _were_all .right. _Chances _\vere_the_farmei_.  hadn't two guns. He tried all he knew  how and, of course, couldn't open the box.  AVe got away all right, but we might  have fared badly, had I not thought ho  might be armed.  "One of our party sold a lot of twenty-  five-eent rings for a quarter and then  gave fifty cents each for them to the  farmers who bought. When he had a  big crowd he sold a dozen cheap watch  chains for a quarter each, find gave a  half dollar each for them back to buyers.  Then he offered fifty cheap watches at a  dollai' apiece, saying there was no telling  but what he'd give $5 each for them  again, as he was simply advertising a big  New York jewelry house Buyers were  plenty, (lush and anxious. Watches  were handed out fast as tliey could be  wrapped iu paper. A few of the first  thii't were .sold had works in them and  would run in a fashion. AU the others  had no works but were only cheap, imitation cases. All were well wrapped iu  paper; Buyers were told to keep up  their .'-anus,  watches  in  hand,  in plain  LODGE   MEETINGS. -  KNIGHTS OF PYTHIAS���Nelson   Lodge,  No,  25,  Knights of Pythias, meets in I. 0. 0. if.

MoKAY, Pros. - -  view, so that no one could make any  change or substitute. Before they know  of anything, our man wlio drove a fast  horse, would leave the crowd and get  .away before they could touch him. In  this branch, we'd take in country cappers  and all and beat them with the rest. It  was dead easy to get a half dozen .jay  cappers for the lirst two buys. Nine  cases out of ten they'd not stop, but go  ahead on the third buy. They, still, like  the other fai-mers, have their alloy  watches on hand unless they threw them  away. A few dollars fixed tiny constable  01 special avIio might be in the way. It  was.dangerous, but it went.  "One clever new thing was this : For:  a half'dollar- enough drug could be  bought to color a barrel of water. Our  barkers sold the cure-all medicine, crying  out to every, farmer to take a sampleJ  The capper.? accepted a small drink of it.'  Hundreds followed. Cappers then paid.a  dime each. Farmers hedged saying they  had accepted a sampled 'Nonsence,' cried  the barkers, 'We said'it* was Dr. Sample's1  cure.' And in this way the agriculturists!  were compelled to, give up a dime each,'  which they did with a laugh and a swear!  at'the damn swindle,'as they said. j  "We had twro boys in our party, kids;  they:-were, who flim-flammed, the huek-;  sters with two "and' five-dollar bills, audi  they did the trick so cleverly that I'm  sure that they qan live comfortably all  winter in'New York without much labor.  That pair of kids will grow up and become expert ten-dollar bill workers in a  year or two. They shoved many a. bad  five, asking for two two's and a one, for  change, while the-beer and oyster men  were in full swing of business at the various eating stands. We did .some little  green goods business, where'.we could  manage a tent pri\.lege in some side,  show, but'there "was not time pi- 'oppor-,  tuuity to fall in with a jay "who .had a  big enough roll to equal a regular come-  on. Green goods' men have a hard row  to hoe these clays, where they're located.  "Too many people are on to 'em; yet  they're doing fairly well. - A- bright,  young fellow was given away the other  day   by  his-   "pal in 'a  neighboring  jail'  FOR SALE  BUSINESS AND RESIDENTIAL  PROPERTY  For a promise, he squealed ; wrote to his  pal in New York to come on. Faithful  lad that he was, he came on to help his  friend and walked right into the hands  of a chief "of police. The judge gave him  two and a half years in an east Pennsyl-  xania jail, while the chief man got free.  That's right, what I'm telling you.  "The twirling pointer that is loaded  and never stops on the space where the  ten-dollar bill is, if the operator don't  want it to, is not a ucav thing, but it is a  winner. When the caliper elbows his  way in the crowd and the operator lets  the pointer stop at the tenner, why, of  course, the farmers try to win the next  big money. 1 hired a good man���that is,  I thought he was a good fellow���to help  us out on a busy Thursday. Well, sir,  that fellow, like till of us, had his price.  He jumped the fair ground when he won  his first ten-dollar bill. . Maybe he's running yet, poor fellow. The ten was too  big ji temptation and ho got away with  it. The whirling race horse is a winner,  as most of the farmers likir'to ,bet on a  horse, even if it is a tin one in a race.  "We . didn't have any thimble l'igs,  little jokers or sweat cloths this trip.  People are too much on the alert for new  plays. The shoe blacking peddler, who  puts one, two and five dollar bills in the  tin boxes in the presence of the jays, to  boost sales, is not a success any more.  Not enough money in it for quick business. We had a wart remover fakir, who  could cut out a wart with his specially  sharpened thumb nail, about as slick as  the best surgeon I ever saw. He sold as  much of the wart remover compound as  he could make out of cheap rosin soap.  Of course, liis thumb nail did the business  in the presence of the crowd who thought  it was the instantaneous wart remover  compound. He could put some of the:  compound in his eye and it wouldn't hurt;  him. It was sold as a harmless preparation, you know.  "There is more business done witli the  women farmers than ever  before.    It is  FULL LINE OF  astonishing how they fill the little side  tents of the fortune-teller women and  the female palmists. But, after all, the  biggest card to win is when you offer  something for nothing. Anything Avith.  the word free to it, is .a sure go. '.Free of  charge' gets a big crowd quick' for you,  and then if you have a work to do for  cold cash, do it quickly.  "As it was in Harnuni's days, so it is  now. People take the chances when it  comes to a humbug or fraud or swindle.  They have faith in their wisdom. AVhy  distrust them ? They'll be just as eager  next fall to get something for nothing, or  to buy a chain for a quarter if they can  sell it back for a half. Of course, they'll  take a dozen each.  "But don't you imagine that I'm hero  giving away the best we've got. There  are some things which cannot be revealed. It would cm.'ike our business too  cheap."
