If 00  $10,562,032  MNTM YEAR  NELSON, B. C,  FRIDAY MORNING, JUNE  U,  1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  THURSDAY'S CLOSING  FAD  THREATENS   NELSON'S    OUTSIDE  TRADE.  Several  Big Orders  for Supplies Went  Begfihiff   at   Closed   Doors   on  Baker Street Yesterday.  Tlio absurd position in whicli  many of, Nelson's leading merchants  Lave placed tlie outside business of  the ciby. by their Thursday' closing  movement received additional emphasis yesterday, and there can no  longer, be any doubt that the closing system if persisted in will work  .irreparable injury, to the very  thriving trade whicli Nelsou merchants in the past- have done with  customers in the surrounding dis-.  tricts.  It is nofc a question as to whether  the clerks employed iu the stores  siiall have a weekly half holiday,  but whether the stores themselves  siiall be open to outside buyers who  come to Nelson to do business. The  merchants of Nelson cannot expect  the people engaged in mining and  iu all other pui'Miits throughout  Kootenay to arrange their business  and their visits to Nelson in conformity wifch fche convenience of  the clerks employed in the retail  trade, ,-ind yesterday fin niahed  several cases in point. They will  he denied the privilege of buying  goods in Nelson once or twice, then  they will go elsewhere.  Visitors to Nelson yesterday  found more difficulty in purchasing  furniture, groceries, boots and  shoes, dry goods,"house furnishings,  {���qui hardware in the houses with  which they wero accustomed to do  1 nisi ness, than the thirsty would  have in securing ��� liquor in a prohibition town. It was another  curbstone day. Mm chants who  had agreed" to keep their (-tores  closed were forced to do business  wir.h their customer's on the street,  or from their back offices receive  orders over the telephone for delivery before (J o'clock. Here aro a  few instances which came to the  attunbion of a Tim>iun_ reporter:  C. W. Husk arrived in Nelson on.  the Kaslo steamer between 11 and  12 o'clock. He had some urgent  business with his local agent, which  employed him until, noon. He then  started out to secure some $200  worth of furnishings for the new  residence which he is building up the  lak<*. -' He made straight for the  Hudson's Bay stores, which are  famous for,their house furnishings,  only to lind himself iip agaiust the  Thursday closing arrangement. Mr.  Husk was so circumstanced that he  =could=iiob=return=to=NelHon==for-sev^  eral days, and he thereupon decided  to order the goods by wire from  Weiler Brothers, who have flooded  the Kootenay wifch their catalogues  and aro prepared to sell goods six  days iu the week; The man who  was with Mr. Busk, however, not  wishing to see the money go out of  the city, induced him to try fche  furniture establishment of J. (I.  Bunyan & Company and had the  satisfaction of seeing a local firm  get a big slice of the business which  was almost diverted to Victoria.  Mr. liusk was also in search of an  outfit of hardware, and the Byers  Hardware Company, being open,  got tlie business. This was one  instance..        *  James Crohin of the Eugene mino  was;.also trying to do business in  Nelson. He was after a big consignment, of furniture, but had no  knowledge of the early closing fad.  He tried to get; into two well known  furniture houses, but failed, and expressed his intention of ordering  Oho goods desired from Toronto by  catalogue. He, too, was induced to  give'x N��I$on : merchants another  chance, for', the business' and the  probability is that tho goods will  be supplied by Bunyan & Company,  who, though not having in stock  just what'was wanted, have got in  line for the order. This was in-  stance No. 2, :ind right here ifc may  be remarked thafc the Sfc. Eugene  mine is considered a rather good  customer for any city to secure.  Martin Anderson of Slocan Junction was another outside purchaser  who. did not know that it; was contrary to the bylaws til: the retail  cl.-rks' association to purchase any  goods iii Nelson on Thursday .afternoon. ' lie runs a small store afc the  -{.miction   and   came''to    town   to  secure some of the bargains.offered  in the clearing sale of tho Neelands  stock of boots and shoes. He ran  against a closed door, with the result that he placed his order for  boots and shoes ��� with A. Ferland.  Ho then tried a couple of hardware  stores for a quantity of Ashing  tackle without success, but finally  secured what he wanted attho  Canada Drug and Book Company's  store.    This was instance No; 3.'���  P. Vans Agnew of the Athabasca  mine furnished another case in  point. He was in from the mine to  secure some hardware and went  agiiilist the Lawrence Hardware  Company's closed door. His business was urgent and- he kept  traveling along Baker street till he'  came to the Byers. Hardware Company's store, and that hardware  will be on its way to the mine this^  morning before the members of the  retail clerks' ,: association x resume  business.  All of these men will know hereafter- that difficulty, may be experienced in making purchases in  Nelson on Thursday afternoon.  They may arrange their business to  please tho retail clerks, or they may  go where they can buy when they  want to buy. But they are only  four in a very g re-it number of'outside buyers, and unless some  arrangement; is made ��� fche absurd  situation of yesterday will be repeated overy Thursday afternoon  this summer.

One bill of sale was recorded at  the Nelson record office yesterday  in wliich Gus Nelson of this city  transferred to John Blomberg a  half interest, and to Nels Loweng-  ring and John Oston the remaining  half .interest in the Alma N. mineral  claim between Eagle and Sandy  creeks.

Greenwood, June l'.i.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���Collector Mc-  Cufceheou of the customs office  rounded up tobacco smugglers this  week, made two arrests and secured one conviction. Hamilton, a  rancher living in Boundary Palls,  smuggled tobacco from a store ph  fche American sido near Midway and  sold some to a merchant. He was  turested and released on bail of  $2;">0. He skipped and his bail  escheated. J. J. O'Neill, a miner of  Summit Camp bought tobacco in  Nelson, Washington, and sold ifc to  miners. He was arrested, pleaded  guilfcy and was lined $100.  ', Shrevei-ort, La., June 13.���  Later reports from the Poster  plantation, where John Gray Foster  was murdered yesterday, say a  dozen or more frightened negroes  are cowering in the cane brakes  surrounded by a big mob, which  threatens every moment to lynch  the whole party. Prince Edwards,  the negro charged with firing the  fatal shot, has not been apprehended,  however, and it is the desire to get  him thafc has restrained the mob  thus-far. Bloodhounds are being  used on his trail, but so far as  known he has eluded Ins pursuers.  The mob includes nearly every  man and boy for miles around.  Most of them are armed, rifles,  pistols, shotguns, guns that saw  service in the civil war, and even"  pitchforks making up the array of  weapons. The negroes imprisoned  in the store are frantic with fear.  They are "officially" in the hands  of the authorities, but they realize  that their real captors are the  members of the mob which has  guarded every avenue of escape  since yesterday. Poster was a  young man well known, a brother-  in-law of governor McMillan of  Tennessee, and a member of one of  the leading families of Louisana.  The negroes were placed in the  store afc 9 o'clock last night, and  although the mob went home during the night, i^vcry avenue of  escape was still doubly guarded at  sunrise today. It is said thafc several times the mob - came near  throwing off all restraint aud  ���lynching" the prisoners. Other  counsel, advising a delay until Edwards should be captured, prevailed,  "���however. Mrs. Edwards is among  the arrested. She had in her possession the shotgun wifch which her  husband is said to have killed Poster. She is quoted as having said:  "Prince told the other men to stand  back and he would settle the business. Then he went in front of  thera and fired and Poster fell."  The Poster' plantation is five miles  east of this city on the Vicksburg,  Shreveporfc & Pacific railroad.  Trouble has been brewing'.: for some  time between the negroes and tho  overseers. Foster, thinking he  could succeed where the overseers  had failed, started for the negro  quarters yesterday. The negroes  were gathered in a cabin and he  =WHs=some-distanee=away==when=the=  shot which killed him was fired.  The negroes immediately scattered.  All but Edwards were quickly captured. ' '  Don't Like the Idea.  'Berlin, June 18.���The report of  the Transvaal concessions committee  is severely condemned here by the  whole press as being high-handed  and denying private property rights  in war against the practice of civilized countries. The correspondent  of the Associated Press learns  from a reliable source that the  German government has instructed  the German embassy in -London to  protest against the gross wrong  meditated against a large number  of German stockholders iu the  Netherlands South African railroad  whenever it appears certain or even  likely that the British government  will adopt the committee's report.  Germany takes the ground that the  German stockholders havo an undoubted right to full compensation  from Great Britain, for their shares.  Germany recalls her own" proceeding after the war of 1870-71,- when  she purchased at a high price the  French Eastern railroad iu Alsace-  Lorraine, til though the road aided  France in every possible manner  during the war. The society formed here for the protection of German stockholders of the Trans vital  railroad says steps have tdready  been taken to compel Great Britain  to do tlie shareholders justice.  Went Ashore in a Fog.  St. John's, N. P., Juno 13.���Tho  schooner Cvvir, bound from Labrador with fishermen and their families���seventy persons iu till ���was  driven ashore on Cabot island, on  the north coast  of  Newfoundland,  in a dense fog on Sunday night. A  desperate struggle with the elements ensued, the men trying to  land the women and children in the  teeth of a gale. The latter were  finally saved, but four men were  drowned and six others were injured in the undertaking. The survivors were on the island two days  without food or shelter. Then  another vessel passing towards  Labrador sighted their distress signals, rescuedfchem and landed them  on the mainland, whence they will  return home on board a mail  steamer. The Czar became a total  wreck and those on /board of her  lost all theirV belongings. The  women aud children ,jyere in a pitiable plight when they reached the  island, being ardiisecl at midnight  and being able:to -secure, scarcely  any of their clothing!'     77  GUBA WILL SOON BE FREE  Forgot to Make';1Returns.  Berlin, June lS^Purther reliable news about" 'the death of  Louis Stern, the former United;  States commercial,' agent at Bam-'  berg, Bavaria, who cbmmitted suicide June 10th by shooting himself,"  shows he had not made any returns  to the state department during the  last eighteen months, but if ho owes  money to the United States it is  only a small amount. On the other  hand a number of*, people in the  United States for whom Stern had  collected estates in .this country  have entered complaints that he  had not remitted the-amounts collected. Judgment for ' 2000 * marks  against Stern was recently rendered  by the Bamberg court and the deceased committed suicide the very  day the 2000 marks was due. Stern  had accepted a fiho commorcial  position at Bamberg,- but the firm  nullified the arrangement when it  learned of the judgment.  Americans Win.

ELECTION FOE NECESSARY OFFICERS SOON TO BE CALLED.  United States Will Probably Keep a  Few Troops on the Island for  Some Time.  Washington, June  13.���It is expected at the war department that  Cuban independence will be an accomplished fact by next Christmas.  The next step in order, now that  the Piatt amendment is adopted by  the constitutional convention, is for  that body to take up and pass an  electorate   bill which will provide  for the election of all the officers  necessary to set up an independent  government   in   Cuba.    It is   said  here   that such a bill is already,  framed and is ready for submission1  to the convention at auy moment.  There is good reason for the belief  that secretary Root has seen   this  bill and has "approved of its provisions, indeed if he has not actually had to do with its construction.  It is thought that the convention  can  dispose of this measure in a  week or two, and that will complete  the labors of the body.   A period  of ninety days, it is said here, must  be  allowed  for publication  of the  electoral  act before the necessary  elections  can  be held.    It may be  necessary and  probably  will be to  maintain some United States troops  in Cuba 'after  the new officials are  inaugurated  and until the  Cubans  havo  hud  time to  set up a Cuban  military force,  but the  length of  this   stay   probably   will    depend  upon   the   wishes   of  the  Cubans  themselves.  Noted Publisher in New York.  NEW YORK. June 13.���Arthur. Pearson, owner of about thirty publications  in England, consisting of dailies,  monthlies and weeklies, among them  being the Daily Express of London, arrived here today on the Oceanic. Mr.  Pearson said that he would be in America one week and that he would visit  the Pan-American exposition.  MONTREAL HAS A TRAGEDY  PROMINENT     SOCIETY . WOMAN  AND  HER SON  FOUND DEAD.  BOARD  OF  TRADE   MEETING.  ____������-. u  There was vory little business to  come before the members" of the  -Nelson "Board' o��' Trade'at' their'  regular meeting last evening, and  in view of this and the prospect of  no important business in sight, the  president, Grange V. Holt, announced that during the remainder  of the summer months the regular  meeting would be dispensed with.  During the warm weather it was  very often difficult to secure a  quorum, and ib would become more  so if regular meetings were held  and members called upon to set  aside other engagements to transact what might be termed purely  routine business. In other places  such matters were attended to by  the council and unnecessary inconvenience was thereby spared the  members of the board. He offered  this merely as a suggestion. If,  =however,=aiiy=imporfcanfc^=matter  came up a meeting could be called  iu the usual way, and the fact that  a meeting was called would in itself  indicate that the business was important and thereby insure a good  attendance.  The suggestion of fche president  was received with unanimous  approval.  The only business of importance  transacted was the adoption of a  resolution, in line with the council's  suggestion, calling upon the federal  government to constitute Nelson a  postal district, with an assistant  inspector in charge of its postal  arrangements who would have  some knowledge of the requirements of fche service.  A Big Tax Levy.  Niow York, June 13.���A dispatch  to the World from London says :  The British government has decided to levy $250,000,000 ou the  Transvaal gold mines to help pay.  tho cost of the war. Sir David  Barbour, formerly**finance minister  for India, who was commissioned  to report upon the taxable capacity  of these mines, advised colonial  secretary Chamberlain to levy  $175,000,000, but Mr. Chamberlain,  after consultation with lord Milner,  increased the maximum to the  amount stated. This action, when  ifc becomes known, is certain to  cause consternation among the  Kaffir stockholders, who. fancied  that the idea of taxing the mines,  wliich are mostly owned in England,  had been abandoned. As these  very gold mines were fche real underlying cause of the war, many have  maintained that their British  owners should be made to bear a  largo share afc least of its heavy  burden.  Opposition to the Steel Trust.  PHILADELPHIA. June 13. ��� The  North American tomorrow will say:  "British capitalists have come to America with a view of buying all the good  companies outside the United States  Steel-- Corporation. If they shall consider it more to their advantage to hold  and operate the plants-they will do so.  If they find it more profitable to resell-  one or all of the plants they will do  that, or if they conclude a combination  of steel works would be. more to their  advantage 'they will merge the com-'  panies they get into a steel combination. ���  Speculates Unwisely and Suicides.  'BALTIMORE, June 13.���Heavy financial losses incurred in -speculation,  it is asserted here, caused the suicide  of Dr. William Hudson Daly, former  surgeon in the United States army, a  , personal friend ' of" general Miles, and  originator of the "embalmed beef" scandal. Dr. Daly killed himself with a revolver in Pittsburgh, Pa., a few days  ago and it was given out there that the  suicide was the .result of melancholia  brought on by the death of his wife.  Prom most reliable sources it is learned,  however, that, the unfortunate man had  invested largely' in -local investments,  and lost heavily.

The  lightning then seems to have entered  her mouth and come out the back of  her chin, making a hole like that made  by a large shotgun.  Still Talking It Over.  WASHINGTON, June 13.���The representatives of the European powers interested in China were at the state department today, this being diplomatic  day, and the general status of the. negotiations at Pekin were gone over very  fully with acting secretary Hill. The  chief Interest centered In the pending  American proposition that the indemnity complication be referred to The  Hague tribunal. None of the governments has yet definitely announced its  proposition as to this plan. But the prevailing sentiment amonjr the callers  seemed that a reference to The Hague  would entail moro delay. One of them  remarked that it would mean at least  another six months of negotiations.  If the Rusisan government concurs in  the suggestion as has been reported unofficially, it will materially add to the  chances that this conference to The  Hague will be made. On the other hand,  at least one of the continental powers  is thought to be quite strongly opposed  to removing tlie negotiations from  Pekin.  Vancouver Notes.

Mine managers in Kootenay ask, why should  mining companies be  required to  make returns  monthly that show  what the mines are actually doing?  One wants absolute publicity; tlie  other wants absolute'secrecy.    The  law requires the manager of a producing mine to make a return on or  --before   the   15th   of   each   month  showing . "the    quantity    of    ore  " shipped   or   treated, during   the.  " previous "month   and  the - assay ���  "values   thereof,, and   any   other  " particulars deemed- necessary "by  "the  minister of  mines."    This-is  the law that the Kootenay mine,  managers say is an unwarranted  interference   with   their   business.  It is the same law that mine manager  Hirsehell-Cohen   says  is   not  sufficiently   stringent    to    protect  investors    in    mining    companies.  Looking at it from the point of a  disinterested newspaper, it would  appear to be a very just and a very  reasonable   law.       If    the   mines  department is to compile information of value, it must have reliable  data. ' The tonnage of ore produced  and the assay value thereof is data  that is absolutely necessary.    Such  data,   even   if   published   weekly,  could not injure auy  company conducting operations on  honest lines.

If a company has no shares  to sell, the information if given  could not injuriously affect the  company. Mine managers appear  to.bo a good deal like  setting hens.  - Tn is Victoria Colonist says there  is a lack of money for investment  in mines. Tiie Colonist is wrong.  There is a lack of mines in which to  invest capital profitably. Prospects  are not mines; but they are too  often held at miue prices. To make  a mineral clain a prospect requires  work ; but too many claim holders  are afraid of hard work. What is  wanted in British Columbia is more  elbow grease aud less- "rag-chewing"; more owners willing to take a  fair price for undeveloped prospects; more experts who kuow tlie  difference between porphyry and  quartz; more mine managers who  prefer work to notoriety and,  above all, regular dividends from  productive mines.  shareholders of the Le Roi Mining  Compauy, but high enough grade  to pay haudsome profits to thei  owners of the  Northport  smelter.  When cornered, mine .managers1  admit they would have no great'  grievance against the laws of this  province were values the same as]  they were four or - five years ago;  but with lead at $1.00 a hundred  and silver at 59 cents, and the .ore,  in several camps, carrying less than  half its former values, every cent!  added to the cost of mining is'an  additional burden. They admit,  that in several respects, the mining  laws of British Columbia are better  than the laws of the United States;  but they denounce the eight-hour ]  law and 2 per cent tax as unjust'  legislation.

Ni'ijSox has two men who believe  themselves to be absolutely pure,  absolutely free from moral defilement, and both waiit the public to  know it through the columns of the  Miner.  There are men in Kootenay today managing mines who obtained  their first experience as miners on  the great Comstock lode at Virginia  and Gold Hill, Nevada. It is just  possible that they have paid assessments on shares in mines that never  paid dividends to their shareholders ; but the ore from these  same mines, when treated at mills  owned by men who controlled the  mines, paid handsome profits to the'  owners of the mills.

Even the report of the killing of an  Indian by a white sheep herder is  false. Colonel Jesse ,M. Lee, commandant at Fort Leavenworth, who  was sent by general- Merriam tw.o.  weeks ago to Fort Waskakie to investigate the alleged troubles with-  the Indians, has made his report to  general Merriam. General Lee in  his report asserts that the Indians  have made complaint that the agent  has not given them sufiicient seed  grain to plant and thereby raiso  their crops, but this was found to  be simply a complaint and to carry  with it no indications whatever of  hostility. The story of the killing  of au Indian by a white sheep  herder grew out of a shooting between two sheep herders, both  white, in which neither was hurt.  America Remains Stubborn.  New York, June 13.���A special  to the Herald from Pekin says: At  the meeting of the diplomatic corps  held yesterday afternoon (Tuesday)  the reduction of claims as pioposed  by America was definitely rejected.  Secretary Hay's proposal to submit  vouchers  to the tribunal   of   The  Hague was taken .lato consideration. If the ministers voice the,  views of their governments there is  a possibility of its acceptance.  Russia made a concession by withdrawing her opposition, which had  been most pronounced. The tax on  salt would be guaranteed to the  powers, provided the commercial  powers consent to the augmentation of import duties. This was  agreed to on condition that the  Chinese government undertakes tho  improvement of harbors and consents to have tho tariff readjusted  by an international commission.  The tari 11" on salt, the native customs duos and tile tax on grain  which, have been conceded amply  guarantee the indemnity. It is  now a]-parent that the powers will,  group themselves together for tho  purpose of issuing bonds for the indemnity. The opposition of America to the proposed international  guarantee has  not been  overcome.  REAL ESTATE AND  INSURANCE AGENTS  Agents "for J. & ii.

The synod of the diocese of Kootenay  will meet in this city on' Wednesday  and Thursday, June 19th and 20th.  A license to wed was yesterday  granted to Robert Conery Andrews and  Helen Blanche Diamond, both of Slocan City.  There wil be a meeting of tho celebration decoration and music committee at the oflico of Gamble & O'Reilly  tonijrht at 8 o'clock.  People who need anything: in the  way of jewelry- should steer clear of  Nelson on Thursdays. The jewelers of,  the town do not cave to show goods on  the afternoon of that day, as it is too  much   trouble.  Tho funeral of Florence Bessie Gray,  wife of George Gray, will take place this  afternoon at 2:30 o'clock, from licr husband's residence, Nelson avenue, Fair-  view. The services will be conducted, in  ��� St. Paul's Presbyterian church.  -s C. W. Busk will have, fully five tons  of strawberries tlm season off three  and a half acres on his ranch.This will  mean 500 crates of berries, tho value  of whioh to'the producer will be about  ��1200. The crop has already heen sold  , to a Nelson firm. Mr. Busk's apple crop  is also doing well, and his apricots are  promising.  No trace has yet been found of the  body of Leslie Wilson, the ]2-yoar old  boy who was drowned off the tug Halys  on Sunday, June 2nd. Dave Clark of  Pilot Bay is now offering a reward of  $25 for the recovery of the body. Anyone securing information as to the  same can consult Duncan McArthur,  of this city, who will pay the reward  offered.  Tho mil at the Arlington mine, near  Erie, has commenced crushing and is  now working smoothly. It is a purely  crushing plant without amalgamation.  The plant consists of two steam stamps,  jigs, Wilfey tables and frue vanners.  The "nominal capacity of the plant is  30 tons per day, but it is expected this  will be greatly exceeded on the.Arlington ore.  : At the sitting of the county court  ���next==week=applications==foi���natui-ali-=  zation will be made by three citizens  of the United States;- one Italian and  one Swede. The applications are: John  Palmer Driscoll, merchant, Slocan City;  James Cardiff, Peterborough, East  Kootenay; Thomas Benton, miner, Slocan City;Paul Nordling, Nelson; and  Salvation Bonacci, also of Nelson.  Chief constable Bullock-Webster  wishes to have the names of any suitable men who are willing to act as  special constables when occasion refill I res. Mr. Bullock-Webster's idea is  to keep on file in his office a list of men  who can he found on short notice; the  difficulty heretofore being that when  special constables are required, the provincial police have not on hand a list  of the names of those persons wishing  such employment. Applicants should  call at the chief "constable's office on  any day, from 9 a. m. to 1 p. m. and from  2' p. m. "to 4 p. m.  'Miss -Laura''Brown of Vancouver has  requested'' the provincial police to ascertain if possible ithe whereabouts of  her brother, Issac, Brown. The missing  man was employed oii the Balfour construction in"'August last, and was heard  from at >Balfo.urM aiuh:.afterwards , at  Northport.'The' 'description of him as  furnished is: Aged GO years, about 5  ��� feet 7 or S inches'; fair complexion, bald-  headed, with remaining hair turning  grey, red moustache, and usually wearing side whiskers. lie was a native of  Cavin. Ireland. Any information may  be left at the provincial police office in  this city.  At a mooting of the trades procession  committee, yesterday afternoon, it was  suggested that an illuminated bicycle  parade be arranged for on Baker street,  on the second night of the celebration.  The sugostion was well received as likely to present a most ati-.-i.ctive feature.  Thoso wishing to take part in the same  are requested to notify Percy Chapman,  either personally or by post; curd, who  upon receiving sufficient encouragement, will call a meeting of tho committee to complete the necessary arrangements. Replies should be sent in  at once so that the parade may be included in the printed program of lhe  celebration.  COUNTY COURT LIST  For the Next Sitting.  The list of cases for the county  court, which opens on Monday before judge Forin, is larger than that  of any previous sitting of the court  in this city. Many of them, however, are cases growing out of the  difficulties of the Molly Gibson and  Chapleau mining companies, none  of which will likely be brought to  trial at the approaching sitting.    .  Among the remaining cases of.  local interest is that of Hazlewood  vs. Minielly, in which the Hazle-  wood dairy is suing Minielly ��of  Kaslo for. $29 on account of ice  cream supplied. The defence in  this case is that the cream was  ordered for a certain date, that ifc  did not arrive within the time  specified, and that when ifc did  arrive there was no sale for it.  Vice vs. Brydges is an action  brought by "William Viceand James  Williams of this city against S. M.  Brydges to recover $200. The  plaintiffs claim that Brydges misrepresented the mortgaged incumbrance upon certain property in the  Davies addition which they agreed  to purchase; that in consequence of  such misrepresentation the agreement to purchase was cancelled,  but thafc Brydges refused to return  the amount of the first payment  upon the purchase price. Tlie defence is that there was no misrepresentation with .respect to  mortgaged incumbrance.  Nipon vs. the Jenckes Machine  Company is an action in which  Paul Nipou,the Nelson laundry man,  sues the defendants for $400, being  the amount of the purchase price of  an engine, which is alleged to have  beeen defective, as well as damages  resulting to his business by reason  of such defects.  The suit of Hall vs. LaBau, the  damage suit growing out of the  fumigation of the office of doctors  Hall & -Rose ' .will probably be adjourned until the next sitting of  the court, as the defence will not  likely be ready to proceed.  FIRE TEAMS ARE CHOSEN    C*  For Dominion Day Races.  Afc the fire hall yesterday captain  Chambers and lieutenant Campbell  drew their teams for the .hub and  hub, and wet test events in the  Dominion Day celebration program.  The members of the brigade some  time ago decided to complete the  entries for tlie firemen's sports  whether there are any outside  entries or not, but in the event of  outside teams coming in ifc still remains competent to pick the best  men from the,, local brigade and  make one team if it is deemed  necessary. . '  Captain Chambers Avon the first  choice on his team and picked Joe  Thompson. Lieutenant Campbell  had a card up his sleeve, however,  and made Kirby Douglas his first  man. Chambers then selected  Harry Houston, when Campbell  sprung his surprise upon the captain  -by^namingTchief=Lillie.77f==T-he==chief=  is an old-time' athlete, but Chambers did not know that he was still  available for sprinting, and passed  him over. This little trick gave  Campbell two of the best men in  the brigade. The teams as finally  selected are:  Captain Chambers, Joe Thompson, Harry Houston, J. Worth,  Harry Stutter, George Eacritt, John  Nunn, James Foote and J. MeLeod.  Lieutenant: Campbell, Kirby  Douglas, chief Lillie, George Nunn,  Thomas Lillie, CHIT Loudiu, J.  Whalley, J. Boyd and II._ Thompson.  Tlie boys will gee out regularly  and practice, so that good races will  be put up whether.outsiders participate or not.  Looking for Her Hiisband.  The cifcy police are  endeavoring  to locate a Galician named Svoboda  who was employed on the construction of the bridge over  tho Columbia  at Robson.    Svoboda a  short  time   ngf)   sent   for  his   wife  aud  child,   who  were  living  at   South  Edmonton, but when they  Arrived  no traco of him  could be  secured.  The services of Charles Jiss-kowicH,  as  interpreter,  wero  necessary  in  order to  enable  the city  police to  understand the object of Mrs. Svo-  boda's search, but they  could  fur-,  nish   her    with    no    information.  Being  familiar   with   the  Russian  system  by  which   tlie authorities  keep   track   of   everyone's    movements, she thought the police were  withholding the   desired  information from her, and it required much  explanation to convince her  to the  contrary.    Being  in  destitute  circumstances,  the woman   and   her  child wero afforded relief for  their  immediate necessities..  TKLKPHONK 27  "TOT ~T-t  V>     Ljl"E3  PAINTS, OILS AND GLASS.
