Nolson's  Staid Citizens Renew Their
Youth and at the Same Timo
Help a Worthy Cause.
,1 The lacrosse game on Saturday afternoon between the; Tamblyn and Mc-
■ Farlimd teams furnished'1 a good afternoon's entertainment to. a large company-at the recreation grounds. When
the opposing teams appeared on the
grounds there was some uncertainty as
to "whether, they had really come for the
purpose of playing lacrosse in aid of the
;■ hospital or whether the game was merely an excuse to enable them to havo thoir
photographs taken in costume, hut in the
end they succeeded in doing both. The
game itself developed many surprises,
in that staid old citizens, who had never
boon suspected of ever having winked
at a lacrosse stick, came out strong and
displayed an aptitude which only came
li'om .previous experience.Another ploas-
iiv, feiturc of the ::aiuc was the earnestness displayed by "all the players.
Many of them wore utterly at sea, but
from the lirst every man on the tield
did tho best he could to advanco the
Cairo of tho side with which he was
identified, r. lesson which more proficient lacrosse players might learn with
In the iine-up the teams were composed as follows: McKarland's—-Quinlan. goal; Criddle, cover point; Johnstone, point; Irving, McFarland, and
Thurman, defence; Wallace, center;
Toye. Macdonald and Gamble, home;
Gibson and Kydd, inside lidme. Tam-
hlyn's team—!<"orin, goal; Lawr, cover
point; Fletcher, point; Amiable, Cameron and Hamilton, defence; McLean,
center; Turner, Tamblyn, and Hunter,
home;  Beer and  Parry, inside .-homo.
The game resulted in a victory for the
McFarland team by four goals to two,
but the Tamblyn men were older and
claimed   that   thoy   were   just   getting
wanned uu to the sport wlicn the referee, David Mark Carley, unfeelingly cut
their chances off by declaring the match
o.verTTIitJ*itrst goal was scored by Mac-
ilonnld in oi.'e minute and a half. The

trick assisto'l\by Macdonald.- The third
game  was- yeyy short, - the  ball  being
sent thi'ough„the Tamblyn Hags by Macdonald  inJ;25'\seconds.   Macdonald  also
scored th'e "fourth goal'in 7 minutes, and
' the first half was ended with tlie score
standing  four  to   nothing'in   favor  of
tho   McFarland - team.    A ' number   of
changes wore made in the positions on
the Tamblyn team for tho second half,
and  tlie  result  showed   that  had   they
been- made earlier a different ending ot
the'"'match  might have been expected.
Forin  was  paced  on  home  and   ih  40
seconds ■ after the face-off he had  the
ball through the McFarland goal.  In 7
minutes he'had it throu*:h again with
the assistance ofifTamblyn. The remain-'
der of the. time was'played without scor-.
ing and the match ended 4 to;2.   ■-••..•■■■.-'■■
"Of the players'it may be.said'., that'-W.
A. Thurman displayed the most science/
' but !*-<* niade-the mistake ot playing too^
him in pdint of merit came judge Forin.:'
The judge'■used to play the game back-
in   Belleville,  and   the  skill   which   he
dispJaveil in handling his stick showed
thnt he had not forgotten many of the
tricks of the game. He had three, men
playing on him the greater part of the
time, and  he  furnished  plenty of employment   for   them.   Then   there   was:
Hugh Cameron, whose figure used to inspire confidence on the (iold at Kempt-
ville with the Tuscaroras, when there-
was not so much of the figure as there
is today.'Hugh was playing in the ue-
fence nnd kept his territory pretty clear
and relieving several  times with   lone
throws  down  the   Held.   Another   man
who covered himself with glory was \V.
A.  Macdonald.  He .has seen the game
played   before and   throughout showed
great generalship. He was also the only
man.on his team who could bo trusted
to make a shot, on the, flags, virtually
securing every goal made by his team.
Dr.  Quinlan, also played good lacrosse
in spots, stopping a number of prom-
ising, shots. .J.   E.   Amiable  also  surprised'   h's   friends   with   his   sprinting
abilities, and he and G. A. Hunter managed, to get into active play the greater
part of.the time. In the face-off J. H.
'Wallace managed to get the hall every
tiine and he followed it'up closer than,
most .'of the other players. He was the
otilj^.man on the. field-to receive a cut. ,
.    Mayor Fletcher took the game very
seriously and -/worked like a Trojan from
tlie s'tiirt.'^His/specialty was in delivering
good, iharc^vliody  checks,  and  he  took
morevpleasur'je, .in spilling' his competitors ;b'ri the ground than in passing the
ball abng the fie.ld. He managed to get
one omwo nice falls to his credit, which
added |;"reatly to the spectacular effect.
Percy ftlriddle was a warm favorite, fie
plays![J*nnis and applied his knowledge
of th*")]game to'lacrosse with some ef-
I he generally got the'ball when'
after it.
JohjSA.  Turner was at, a great dis-
adyan||*;e. as some designing person in-
lim   to  take   the  guard  off  his :■
}d f*s a result lie could not hold
when  he  got  it.   Fred  Irvine

reached anything like forty years of age.
W. >A'}- McLean, George Johnstone, Dun-
, can'MoFarland, ,7. Lawr, R. J. Hamilton,
and -Dr.!»'Arthur furnished numerical
strength to' their respective teams. In
the case of McFarland he was confident that he had the stron<_est team,
and he very wisely left the work to
them. The preparatory course had been
too short for'-Johnston.. He had mastered tlie art of catching the ball on the
stick, but when it came to throwing he
fouiuL. that he could not even  "pass."
John Toye on the field,reminded some
of tho spectators of the early seventies,
when John captured the 100-yard championship from lawyer Macdonnell of
Vancouver, who was then a hoy in
Cornwall. John can run even yet, and
the way in which he had his glasses
tied on showed that he was in that lacrosse game to win if it were possible.
John Ayton Gibson had gotten himself up with.a.single view to the photographic 'possibilities of the day. He
wore an immaculate costume of white,
and throughout the day endeavored to
soil it as little, as possible, and was fairly successful. Close admirers of George
Kydd's style on the field all agree that
he can sing a Scotch song better than
he cau play lacrosse. A. G. Gamble
showed himself, to bo a'lively sprinter,
and when he was not chasing the rubber lie employed himself in giving the
i ,>-,-. n ir--v pointers on the game as
it ought lo he played. W. W. Beer may
be said to have played a safe, steady
game, nnd was seen to best advantage
while applauding the goals secured by
his side. Melville Parry was in the g.»*»*a.--.>
from the start, and several players
who-r. ho sat upon sincerely wish that
.he had been ruled qff.
Thero is only one player left, and that
is Frank Tamblyn- He felt so had over
(lie way the game went that ho could
scarcely tell his friends how it happened. Since the match it has come out
Lhat Tamblyn not only picked his own
crew, but also picked a number- of Mc-
Farland's team as well, so that. in a
measure ho was beaten by the men
whom he had himself put in the class
with the second raters.
The match was umpired very satisfactorily by Hyde Baker of Cranbrook,
and T. G. Procter, while John Houston
and G. C. Hodge took"the shift as field
captains of the respective teams.
As a result of the game the hospital
funds wero swelled by something over
?100.- nnd the players by a keg of Roisterer's best lager, wliich was donated
by the brewers.

Many Deaths Recorded.
-NEW . YQRIC._,June__'.30.—The ' rplicf
from the killing heat oMast week which
was promised today in the shape 'of
thunder storms did not materialize. Instead the temperature increased, there
\*.as lei's breeze than' the day before
and what little air did'sLir was charged
with heat: • Thero was scarcely a cloud
all day to shield the" city's" populace
from the sun's burning rays. Thero was
an increase in fatalities reported today
over, yesterday. Up to midnight '19
deaths had been reported and 20 prostrations. The deaths yesterday numbered 11.
NEW HAVEN, Conn., June 30.—Reports from Connecticut cities show today has been the worst day in the hot

LONDON, July 1.—-The long-continued drought in Great Britain has broken
up. Violent thunderstorms occurred
Saturday night and yesterday accompanied by heavy rains and lightning,
which wrought great havoc. Many parts
of the continent have been suffering
from heat waves. In Portugal much
damage has been done by. floods and
hail storms. According to a dispatch
to the Daily Express from Oporto 20
persons were-drowned, by floods in the
Carrazeda district and live killed by

LONDON, June 29.—The report of the
select committee of the house of lords
appointed to consider the accession declaration of-the sovereign in regard to
t.ransubstantiation - finds that the lan-
guage_ can he advantageously modified
without diminishing its efficiency as
security for the maintenance of the
Protestant succession. The form of dec-'
laration suggested by the committee
does not contain phrases relative to
idolatry, etc., which are so objectionable to Roman  Catholics.
TJuifa'n Bank Saspends.
BUFFALO, N. Y., June 30.—A notice
was posted on the door of the City Bank
today" to the effect that tho bank is in
the hands of the comptroller of the currency and that it will not open its doors
for business tomorrow. The hank officials refused tonight to make any statement concerning the failure.
NEW YORK, June 29.—The London
correspondent of the New York Tribune cables as follows: Dinners have
served a useful purpose in American politics at critical stages of nominating
conventions, but they are dreaded by
English Liberals on account of the risk
involved in practical demonstrations
that the leading men are not on speaking terms with one another. It is a pa-,
thctic proof of the decline and degeneration of the progressive party led by
Gladstone that a great hubbub has been
caused by the proposal that Mr. As-
t-uith will be honored by a banquet.
Politicians in the smoking room of the
house of commons take a serious view
of the matter, even if the front opposition benches be cynically indifferent
to current gossip andsome of them are
foretasting the disruption of the party
if Mr. Asquith's friends persist in snub-
bin*. Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman
or if Lord Rosebery "emerges-from retirement and taKes the chief seat. The
faction-rent Liberal party is not, however, so far gone that it cannot survive
a complimentary dinner to one of its
most brilliant and sturdy leaders. The
relative strength of the Radical and Liberal Imperialists' position is variously
stated. When the general .elections
were held there were some outspoken
speeches on tlio war in South Africa
and the majority of the Liberal candidates belonged to the group led by lord
Rosebery, Mr. Asquith, Sir Henry Fowler and Sir Edward Grey. The Liberal
Imperialists professed to have about
115 members on the opposition side, but
it is probable that not more than 80
would care to be labeled in that way.
Not many radicals would court the opportunity of placing themselves on record as in favor of peace on the basis
of recognition of the independence of
the Boer republics, but there are scores
who are bent upon discrediting- men
like lord"Rosebery; Mr.'Asquith and Sir"
Henry Fowler.
Between the radical guerillas and the
Liberal Imperialists there are files of
moderate men who are striving to close
up the ranks and rally the best elements
of the distracted party. The Conservatives, meanwhile are doing little to prove
their capacity for conducting or financing a most arduous war or for making a record in legislative industry.
The withdrawal of the educational
bill and the threat from Mr. Balfour
tliat the commons will not rise before
the last week in August are indications
of a misspent session, and while' it is
convenient for ministers to accuse the
opposition of offering embittered resistance they are themselves responsible for the block in public business and
for • the beggarly results of . legislation.
No new reputations have been made
during the session. Winston' Spertcer
Churchill has created more stir than
any other new member,, but th*. veterans
in the commons considered him a bad
breath when he-'is on his feet,-and also
as an overrated politician, without real
genius for public life.
Mr. Gilbert Parker has not yet overcome his habit of-nervousness and diffidence,
Mr. Henry Norman has been too discreet to attempt a maiden speech, but
has been an industrious student of foreign affairs and is constantly making
use of the privileges of the question
hour. v
The new ministers have done' little to
justify their promotion. - .Mr. Broderick
has'been fluent in defending his superior superficial scheme of military reorganization. The English commercial
marine and the steel manufacturers are
making a close study of the complex
probl.m of combination and may succeed in working it out more rapidly
than they themselves venture to expect. .■'.."•
The art dealers are still rubbing their'
eyes over the exceptional price brought
at auction by Hoppner's portrait of
Louisa, Lady Manners. Prices for Hoppner's had been steadily advancing and
this was a brilliant example;*?_but they
were not prepared to see .i;t" knocked
down for 14,050 guineas when Reynolds'
Lady Betty Delme had brought 20,000
guineas and famous Gainsboroughs even
War news from South Africa remains
indecisive, but the general trend is favorable to the British side. Nothing-
has been heard from Dewet since the
capture, of his convoy and there is-evidence that he is unable to replace his
ammunition and. cattle. The clearing
operations have * been conducted with
thoroughness in the northern section of
the Orange River Colony as far as the
passes of the mountains and the Eastern Transvaal has been swept by a
fresh combined movement. The details
of these movements with another repulse south of Orange River indicate
that the Dutch resources of resistance
have reached the breaking point. This
has been said many times by British
optimists, but apparently never before
with* an equal degree of confidence. Military men assert that the Boers have
been driven out of the Orange River
Colony by the thoroughness of the clearance movements and by their utter lack
of food, and that, they will soon be dispersed by general French after fighting
in the last stretch south of the Orange.
Lord Milner's visit to England is
drawing to;a close and has been filled
with work of the colonial ofiice. Ho
has been unable to escape social invitations, but has found leisure for a
prolonged exchange/of views with Mr.
Chamberlain and. other cabinet ministers. He will probably make an important speech before his return to
Cape Town and will explain briefly the
principles which will be carried out in
his reconstruction policy. Milner does
not talk like an official who has lost
courage and hope. He forecasts a
speedy end of hostilities and ultimate
reunion of the hostile, races with suitable language and-industrial policies'and
confederation^ as a, politic goal.
The Salt Un'on.
♦ LONDON, June 30.—Some misunderstanding seems to have, arisen in the
United States, as to the nature of the
combination completed last Friday at
the,meeting;of the Salt Union in Liverpool. As a matter of fact the announce- •
ment made by Mr .Ward, president of
the Salt -Union, referred only to the
completion of the vBritish combination.
It was officially asserted that the Salt
Union had no knowledge of an American combination.

Samples Taken Across the Face of the
Three-Foot Ledge Give Returns in Gold of $40.
The gold ledge which ,Mike O'Brien
is developing* on Bird creek continues
to improve, and he will soon have it in
shape so that he could make a turn
over.on it if'he-so decided. He has run
in a short .tunnel and open cut on -the
ledge from the creek bottom, which is
now in some 25 feet and the ledge appears to be gradually widening, being
now a generous ^three feet. There are
'about 18 inches' of \duartz in the ledge,
the balance .being made_-up„pf stringers-
of "talc"S,iid ledge mat»^"r."; In the quartz
itself there-is very little free gold visible, but it assays well, carrying considerable conper-as' well as the cold'values.' The talc also carries good'values,
it being possible to pan gold from almost any of it.' From careful samples
taken across the entire ledge' of three
feet O'Brien has had assays, of $40, so
that he has every-reason to feel satisfied with his find. Some very pretty
specimens of the ore are on exhibition
in the office of the local prospectors'
"A. D."Westby, who for several years
managed the affairs of the Canadian
Mining & Milling Company in its fruitless endeavors to uncover the parent
ledge of the- many stringers exposed
on Woodbury creek, is back on the .same
creek again witli a new venture. In
company with a number of others he
has organized a company in Minneapolis to take over and develop the Golden
Nugget property, situate - on the north
fork of Woodbury creek about a mile
from   the   Pontiac. ,Some^__very7_high_,
Assays have been received from the surface of the Golden Nugget, the ore carrying gold and silver values. The Minneapolis company will commence development on the property early in
August. Its affairs will be managed by
George H. Sealey.
An important copper strike has been
made on the Hazel May group on Sunrise mountaiu, about five miles from
Crawford Bay and one and a half miles
from the Crawford Bay wagon road.
G. W. Herron. who has been working
the claims all summer, says he has
uncovered nine feet of ore close to the
.uj'face, and udds that he thinks the
body will be found to bo still wider.
The ore is a 'sulphide, carrying considerable chalcopyrlte, and assays well in
copper and gold, and in appearance is
said to resemble that from Sophie mountain. The property is so favorably situated that "very low grade ore could
be worked at a profit. Development on
■the property is now being pushed as
Vapidly as possible.
Good-Sized Dividend
In   the   London   Financial   News
June 12th appears the official announcement that on June 29th (last Saturday)
the Le Roi No. 2 Mines, Limited, will
pay a dividend of five shillings per share
on its capital of £600,000, making a
first payment hy this company of ?144,-
000. The properties mined by the company include the Number One, Josie,
Annie, Annie Fraction, Rockingham
and Thekla.
The Rossland World says the first ore
shipment was made on the lGth of August of last year, and up to January 1st,
1901, about 3000 tons were sent to the
Northport smelter. This year up to
March 31st, 8592 tons were shipped giving a gross value of $171,310. In April
44G9 tons gave ?47,G70, and- last month
4290 tons yielded X, 13,517, or about $67,-
585, making total gross receipts from
ore shipments up to May 31st, $280,585.
The first shipments ran as high as $33
per ton, and the average return now is
about ?l«o.25. The company was licensed
July 10th. 1900., and is the lirst Rossland flotation in London, outside of the
Le Eoi, to pay a dividend.
ROTHESAY, June 30—A development as interesting as it was entirely
unexpected has occurred concerning the
challenge for the America's cup. This
is due to the action of Kenneth M.
Clark, owner of the cutter Kariad. Mr.
Clark has had three opportunities of
racing the Kariad against the Shamrock
I. and he has witnessed all the trials
of the two Shamrocks since the challenger was refitted. His observations
have led him to doubt seriously whether
the Shamrock II. is good enough to send
to American waters to compete for the
cup. He has a belief amounting to a
conviction that the Kariad is a better
boat, length for length, than the Shamrock II. and he desires to see this question settled before any yacht goes out
as a challenger. Mr. Clark said today: "I believe the Kariad is faster
than either the Shamrocks. I ,may be
wrong, but this is my opinion and I
consider that I have excellent reasons
for holding it. I desire an opportunity
to enter the Kariad in the trials. If
this request is not granted I shall challenge Sir Thomas Lipton to a trial race
between the Shamrock II. and the Kariad, to he sailed over courses similar
to the course for the America's cup and
on the American measurement in order
to decide which should be sent as the
LONDON, June 30.—The Field, published today, in an editorial on'the history of the cup contest reiterates the
complaint that yachting has reached a
phase in which the time-honored interests of sport have been thrust aside,
and declared the moment has arrived
when British yachtsmen should guard
against the introduction of irrelevant
issues and specious sentiments. The
Field attacks the New York Yacht Club's
rating rule as tending to produce a bad
and unseaworthy type or boat and, protests' against interference in the,sport
of important and wealthy laymen. The
Field concludes its editorial by saying:
"In bygone years the American cup had
a beneficial influence, but now it is doing more harm than good to yachting."
30.—The Pennsylvania crew today in
the drawing of lots for the racing next
week drew to compete with the London
Rowing Club and also urew the Bucks
station, which is an advantage. The
Leander crew drew New College. The
winner of the Leander-New College
heats meots the Belgians. This is generally taken to signify that Pennsylvania gets into the final heat, probably
with Leander, as the Americans only
meet'two of the weakest clubs in the
trial races.
LONDON, June 30.—The Daily News,
discussing the crews at Henley, says
public interest centers in the doings of
the Pennsylvania University crew and
that the race will be a fair test of the
American and English styles of rowing.
The Daily^ News admits that the Leander crew is'as good as any crew which
last 10 years, and that the Americans
form the best foreign crew -ever seen
at Plenley. The paper doubts whether
the English crews will be able to beat
the Pennsylvanians.
LONDON^June 29.—St. Levin came in
first in the race for the Victoria cup
at the Hurst park summer meeting today. Sweet Dixie was second, and Cla-
queuer third. An objection was raised
against St. Levin on the ground of boring. It was s-listained and the race was
awarded to Sweet Dixie, owned by Richard Croker. The Victoria cup is a solid
gold statue representing queen Victoria.
LONDON, 'June 29.—A. F. Duffy
(American) at scratch won the final in
the 100-yards handicap at the London

Wilson Criticized.
MONTREAL, June 30.—The Montreal
Gazette, under the heading of "A Weak
Strike Champion," says this morning:
J. W. Wilson, president of the Railway
Trackmen's Organization, in his address
before the Federated Trades and Labor
Council, referring to the statement that
other roads were mot paying their track
workers as much as the C. P. R., ad-
•mitted its truth and then went on to say
that to a man whe had any conception
of justice such a state of affairs had no
weight. - The're will be those who will
differ from Mr. Wilson ,on this point.
There will be ttibse aside altogether
from the railway management who will
think that it is a factor of marked importance in the situation and one that
will turn the sympathy of the public
away from the strikers. Probably the
reason why Mr. Wilson-and his associates decline to accept the idea of arbitration is because no arbitrators would
he likely to decide in favor of the strikers, who, besides being ihoderately well
paid for the class of work they do, are
paid better than those who do like labor
on roads with whicli the C. P. R. Company competes. No fit arbirtator would
say that the road which pays the highest wages should be forced to pay more
simply as a means of giving the strikers an advantage when their fellows
come to demand an icrease from roads
which pay less.   The more Mr. Wilson
talks to the public in -the 'strain of his
last address  the  less  will the  public
sympathize with him.   The less he uses'
the means in his power to convey the
idea that because of the strike the road
he is fighting is a dangerous on'e to
travel on, the more also will he retain
of the little support he is getting outside of the strikers' organizations. This
is a strike year, one of those recurring
periods when" the extremists have control of the labor organizations and when
the conservatism and reason of the majority are temporarily overruled.   Only
on such ground can many of the labor
struggles  now going on be accounted
for.    There is the leaders* own statements   to   show   that  this' trackmen's
strike is among the least defensible the
-fever has produced.

Each issue contains news of interest ,to|

the news is given below:'       > -w  '.
rector of la Revue Canadienne,' has arrived in London for a holiday. Interviewed by a representative of the Daily
News he referred among other matters
to the way in which American capital
is Invading Canada. "American capital," he said, "Is spreading around the
lakes, up the rivers and along the railway systems. It is breaking down the
harrier between Canada and the United
States. The Americans -are not' conquering us, but they are buying us up.
When this is accomplished it will only
need a slight political difference with
the home government and the annexation movement, now dead, will revive.
Then you will have to look not to the
half-Americanized business men of Toronto, but to us French Canadians, who
have saved Canada for you more than
once, and may save it again unless you
hopelessly alienate us."
Unlucky Picnickers.
CHICAGO, June 30.—One person was
killed and nearly >a score injured today
in a collision between an electric car
on Irving Park boulevard * and two

The Boer Prisoners.
HAMILTON, Bermuda, June 29.—The
British transport Armenia, which arrived in these waters yesterday, brought
930 Boer prisoners. She anchored in
the sound, half a mile west of Darel's
island. The gunboats Midway and Medina, as guard ships, are anchored on
either side of the transport. Crowds of
people in boats sailed round the transport yesterday, pnly government officials are allowed on board. The Boers,
from bearded men of 70 to youths of 17,
swarmed on the forward deck, laughed
and lifted and waved their hats to the
passers by. Several of the prisoners
inquired eagerly for fruit, tobacco and
g*-*Dg.. They say they have no cause for
complaint of their treatment. The
sound today is alive with craft carrying stores and workmen to the islands
where the camps are being prepared to
receive the Boers.

'^tooUve^UjL ded with horses* mules.and.

Big Salmon on Tuesday morning atr10
a. m., drowning John W. Lowes/and
causing a narrow escape for nine others
who were taking the scow tb Dawson. . v.
The scow belonged to \T. A. Rouse, of ^j
Rouse & Wren, freighters of Dawson. ,'*
Mr. Rouse at the time • was behind the
scow in a small boat gathering pa
for a manger when the accident <
curred. The left' hand channel was/
taken about a mile and a half above^
the wreck, instead of taking the" right
hand one, which*is always considered
dangerous by" all hpatmen. The, chan-.,
nel makes a big bend^ about half a mile,
above the big bed' oJJ rocks. Once ,"a,
scow gets into this channel it Ib almost
impossible to get it out again. The
scow hit th,e rocks broadside, throwing Lowes, who was at the sweep with
three others, into the river over the
up stream side. He -sank immediately,
going under the scow and coming up-
disapnear again. The scow* then began to -go to pieces, throwing livestock,
and the rest of the crew, who were
asleep, into the water. A struggle for'
their lives then began. Mr. Leslie, who •
runs a wood camp on the opposite side
of the river, seeing the accident, took
a small boat and succeeded in putting
them all ashore. Two members of tho
N. W. M. P. detachment at' Big Salmon went to the scene and took charge
or the drowned men's effects.' Lowes
was born in Toronto, Ontario, but had
been living at Sandon, British Coluni;^^^
bia, for some time, where he owns aii^^-jj
hotel and some real estate. He was a
friend of L. C. Lane jof Dawson.
Thomas Keogh, who has been in tho
Klondike for the past year working
his claim on Bonanza, arrived in town
last night with a $20,000 sack of dust
as. a result of a part of his clean-up.
He will realize something like a half
million dollars when the work is finished. Asked by a reporter what the
output would be he said: "It is impossible to denominate the output. Some
claims are yielding abundantly while*
others are sloughing and not meeting
expectations. The Professor Lippy .
claims will possibly clean up for that v
gentleman $1,500,000 or more. When -,1
left there was o*ver a million in sighfej
and the work was going on as though*
nothing had  happened."
Chinese Americans.
SEATTLE, June 29.—Judge Hanford
of the federal court has handed down
a decision on a habeas corpus case in
which he made some pointed comments
on the past methods of bringing in Chinese aliens as American born Chinese.
The court stated that it believed American witnesses had been brought to testify falsely as to alien Chinese having
been born in Seattle, and stated that
hereafter he WQuld consider that all
Chinese born in Seattle prior to 1890
who had gone to China had come back.
He proposed to let no more Chinese in
on this claim. It is alleged that a regular system has existed in this city of
hiring men to swear that Chinese are
known to them as having been born in

His  ,-' opinion is that of an expert, and it is  a,favorable  one for British  Columbia.  - ' Lawyer Gait is" the hired attorney of a  ,'_>mining  company  that" has  done  much  to give mining in this province a black  O eye. He is not an expert;  he is merely  ''"-'a paid pleader for a mismanaged min-  .',. ing  company.

If the Herald would  only print the total amount spent hy  the people of British Columbia on roads  and trails in Revelstroke riding since  the mineral tax was first levied and  then print tho total amount of mineral  tax paid by the mines in Revelstroke  riding, the comparison would be so  ridiculous that the Herald would be  ashamed cf itself.  "How a Wild-Cat Came to Grief," is  the startling headline of a column article i:i the Vancouver Province of last  Wednesday, which graphically portrays  ,the life of a mining company that had  its head olllce in London, England, and  its "mines" in British Columbia. Tho  Rossland Miner and the Nelson Minor  and the Sandon Mining Review, and  the other yelping newspapers of tho  samo. breed ih the province, will, no  doubt, reprint the Province article as  further evidence of the inherent rottenness of the mining laws of British Columbia.

But, strange to say,  no town in Canada of the same population is more orderly than Nelson; -no  town has more'coffortable homes;  and  'no town, perhaps, has so few harrow,  intolerant, bigoted, mud-throwing dead  beats.

The .New Westminster' Columbian  urges'the canners and the white fishcr-  ,fnen to meet, face to face and .settle  their differences, and not allow the mil-  Tion-odd dollars that will be paid for.  ' catching fish to go to Japanese, who  will send the bulk of it to Seattle and  Japan. ��� The Columbian is giving good  advice. The money for catching the  /lsh that run in the Fraser river should j  go towards upbuilding towns along the'  Fraser, and not towards increasing the  wealth of foreign cities and foreign  ]".nds. If British Columbia is to. be  merely the abiding place of the few  -\vh'o can employ hordes of semi-slave  aliens, like Chinese and Japanese, then  let the many white-born men and "women whp have come here to make homes"  for themselves, pull iip stakes and, go  elsewhere to live. ' There can be, no  permanent prosperity while the conditions that now- prevail' on Fraser river  ���exist , It must "be either: all'-. white or  all slave.  The people of Skagway, although they  '.make their living ,off miners"who mine  gold;in.British  territory, hate the flag  that protects, the-men that give them  their bread:-, and butter.    This is borne  out by'an incident that occurred in that  town one day recently, when a British  ' flag floating over the office of a Canadian  customs officer waa hauled down  by a braggart from Oregon.   The British flag^ has protected the lives of Amer-  ."icans  when  the .stars and  stripes  was  no protection;   but the citizens of the  great   republic   appear   to'have   short  memories.    Here  in  British  Columbia,  -the-stars-aiul-stripes-has-always-a-placo  alongside  the  British  ensign  on  ever*  holiday,.and   flay   of   special   festivity,  an'd: no' British   subject   feels   tho   less  loyal oi*'the'less proud of li is country  because   of   such   displays   of   national  bunting.

LONDON, June 29.���A .blue book was  issued this morning giving the correspondence between Lord Roberts and  the Boer authorities on. the subject of  destruction of property.' Its contents  aro generally known. The presidents  of the Transvaal and . Orange Free  State February 3d, 1900, .protested  against "the destruction arid devastation- of farms by' barbarians, encouraged by 'British officers, and 'by white  brigands, contraiy to the usages of  war." Later generals Botha and Dewet  'made-some complaints of "Godless barbarians and atrocities of the British  and their robber patriots." Lord Roberts replied in a similar strain to all  the protests, declaring that the British did not encourage barbarians,: but  that the burning of farms and buildings was,,necessitated by the treacherous shooting of the British from: farm  houses and the wrecking of trains, and  accusing, the Boers of wanton destruction and guerilla tactics, which he was  compelled to repress by exceptional  .measures always employed, by civilized  nations in like circumstances.  ���fi ���$.  to : \u  _H.

Dr. Laborde has described to the  Paris Academy of Medicine a method of  extracting teeth without pain and with  the accompaniment of sweet music. It  is the discovery of a Paris dentist. It  patient is put under the influence of  gas after his ears have been connected  with the tubes of a phonograph, which  is rolling off gay tunes. The idea of  this dentist was inspired .by the fact  that when the gas begins to act on the  patient" it generally causes terrifying  nightmares, which are, connected with  sounds in the room or on the street.  By drowning all these sounds with music such nightmares would be avoided.  Dr. Laborde suggests that this method  might be employed with beneficial effects in operations which a're conducted  under ether or "chloroform, to do away  with the risk of the after effect-of: ner-;  yous depression.'.

George Moore, the author and dramatist, once had a play accepted at the  Odeon in Paris. At the same time an  adaptation of "Othello" was being rehearsed there. One day Mr. Moore.called  to see the manager of the Odeon. The  doorkeeper did not know him and asked  for his name and business. "1 am tlio  English author whose play has been accepted here," said Mr. Moore; "1 wish  to see the manager." The doorkeeper  went into the manager's room and said:  "There's an English gentleman at the  door who says that you have just accepted his play, and wants to see you."  "Quito right," said the manager; "show  him In. M. Shakespeare, without doubt."  A FULL LINE OF  Front Doors  Inside Doors  Screen Doors  ^Windows^  INDIVIDUALITIES.

The provisions  were carried off in a basket belonging  to the doctor. It might not be amiss  for the police to once in a while saunter  along the residence streets of the town.  ~An accident-happened-to the circus  train j'estonla:*- afternoon as it was  coming into the city over the Nelson  & Fort Sheppard road, but it will not  interfere with the performance or streat  parade today. The accident was caused'  .by the breaking of a'flange on the second cnK-.from^the engine and resulted  in several cars loaving-the rails. None  of (.he ���inimals wore injured, but it tool-  several jiours to cjeai* the track.  The Nelson Cigai'makers' .Union on  Saturday elected the following officers:  O. "VV.

So far the police have failed to apprehend the person or persons implicated in the turning of the railway  switch at Cranbrook, and it is not now  regarded as likely that any arrests will  be made, The police have their suspicions ns to one of the guilty parties,  but since the occurrence they "have not  been able to secure any trace of the  man wanted. The fireman on the  wrecked engine is certain that he saw  the man suspicioned in the railway yard  on the night of the' accident, but since  then he has completely disappeared.  F.

McLean are now on their  way to Jennings, Montana, in answer to  a summons from Mr. Ffolliett, and expect to take over a piece of it. Thero  are, all told, about 75 miles of the road  to be built on this side of the boundary, and it is expected that Nelson wholesale houses will get a considerable portion of the trade in furnishing the supplies needed.  At the eleventh hour last night the  local C. P. R. passenger traffic department awoke to the fact that a special  train service would have to be run to  bring in people from Slocan Lake points.  A train will be run out of Nelson this  morning and will be back by 1 o'clock.  Among others it will bring the members of the football club of Slocan.  Peter. McVeagh, the railroad contractor, is up from Victoria. He reports  everything quiet at the Coast, with little in sight except the government  ���bridge across the Fraser river at New  Westminster and the city work in Victoria. A rumor is current that the C.  P. R. have made a deal for the Dunsmuir railway and coal interests.  The principal events in connection  with the regatta today will be the final  heats in the junior and senior four-  oared races. In the former the Nace  and Pullen crews will come together,  and in tlie latter'the Winter and Thomson crews, the first mentioned being the  winners in the trial heat with the Hedley crew on Saturday, and the Thomson  crew the holders of the bye. These heats  will be rowed early in the afternoon.  The Tribune timidly suggests that the  city come to the: aid of the tramway-  company .in a way,that will meet with  the approval of every progressive citizen. The 500-odd incandescent lights  strung on the streets by the decoration  committee should be maintained there  permanently; and the tramway company  paid' $100 a month for furnishing1 the  electric "juice" to keep them burning  on Saturday nights ana state occasions.  A meeting' of. the directors of the  Edgewood Dairy Company was held on  Saturday evening for the purpose of  considering the matter of clearing the  company's property, in Fire_'.

James Paterson Byers, Charles Atkinson McAnally,  Albert Jenkins, George A. White, Daniel  Bowen Stevens, William John Fumell,  Alexander Hector, James Dawson and  Alexander E. Steele, The election will  be held next Saturday. Robert Perdue  is returning officer. Of the nominees  for alderman, "Jim" Dawson is well-  known in Nelson, as he.was in business  here for a number of years.  School Board Election.  Nelson witnessed its last school election as a rural district on Saturday  morning, when an election was held to  fill a vacancy on the school board caused  by the retirement ot trustee- George  Johnstone. There were just seven persons present at the nominations, including the present members of the  school board, and when it is added that  this attendance represents an increase  of 50 per,cent over the usual attendance at such jneetings a very good idea  may be had of the interest which the  people of Nelson take in their schools.  T*--o nominations were n*ade. Dr.  Arthur nominated George Johnstone, the  retiring trustee, for re-election, and F.  Irwin nominated Dr. Hall. There were  the elements here for a contest, but a  contest of this kind was just what the  eld trustees desired to avoid, as two  of them were billed to play lacrosse in  the afternoon, which they did not propose to miss for all the school el actions in the world. They accordingly  put their heads together in order to  TELEPHONE 27  E3I.    B"yEI?,S   <fe   GO.  PAINTS, OILS AND GLASS.  GARDEN   TOOLS.
