C, THURSDA.Y, JULY 4, 1901  FIVE CENTS  STATISTICS A LITTLE ACED  APPEAR AT LAST IN AN OFFICIAL  RECORD OF AN INDUSTRY  '>>ir  That Is Making British Columbia One  of the Most Frosperous Sections of Canada.  ***?!���  . m  :v  L4**  |v)>' r  .. Pr  The annual report of the minister of  mines   for   the  year   ending  December  ' 31st, 1900, is to hand.    There is little  that is new or original in the report,  for it is the work of Willian Fleet Robertson, provincial mineralogist.    There  aro a number of tables of statistics that  are of no great interest and a number of  illustrations   that  have   nothing  to   do  with mining as an industry.    The sta-  ��� tistics from the different  mining divi-  '"sions show that there is either n good  deal*��of   prospecting   being   done   or   a  good  \leal   of   relocating.     It   is   noteworthy   in  connection   with   these  statistics that Nelson stands at the head  of the list  in  the volume  of  business  transacted   under  all  live  of  the  main  heads.    The  total   number  of  mineral  claims recorded in East and West Kootenay  for  the  year  was  3912  and  the  assessments reco*. Jed were 5312, which  means that over- half a mollion dollars  were   expended    in   doing*   assessment  work.     Certificates     of    improvements  wove issued for 49G claims.    Assuming  that   the   new   claims   recorded   during  tho year average 40 acres each, 156,-ISO  acres of crown lands wore staked and  19,8*10 acres surveyed for ciown grants.  The number ot bills of sale recorded indicates that there was considerable trading done in buying and selling, the total  records being 2525.   The number of free  miners', certificates - issued  indicate the  number of people interested  in mining  as owners of ground.    The total being  71ES.  There   arc   but   two   reports   of   the  ���Operations of mining companies incorporated in the report, and they aro, by  far;  the  most  interesting statistic**   in  the volume of 300 pages.'  Both companies aro in Nelson mining division.

VICTORIA, July 3.���The Empress of  China, which was detained for 10 days  at Nagasaki with plague on board,  reached here this afternoon, having  made the trip in 10 days and 12 hours,  tlio record for the eastbound passage,  although better time has been made in  going west. Tlie following advices were  received from Yokohama by the China:  Field Marshal count von Waldersee's  visit to Japan was eminently successful. He was accompanied by a suite of  several olficers and spent more than a  week iu the country. He had two audiences with his majesty, the emperor,  and her majesty, the empress, and-was  made the recipient of handsome' gifts  by the former. He also paid Yokohama  a visit, and attended a reception at the  German Club, and inspected the United  Club's fine new Quarters on the Bund.  'After a trip to Nankow ho returned to  Tokio and thence embarked by the German warship Bertha for Nagasaki. The  German minister, count von Arco Valley, accompanied him as far as the  southern poit. During tho field marshal's stay in the capital the Shiba detached palace was placed at his disposal. <*  Desperate Colorado Miners.  DENVER, July 3.���News reached here  late   this   ovening   of   an   outbreak   of  striking miners of the Smuggler mine,  at Telluride in the extreme southwestern part of the state.   The information  was to the effect that the whole place'  had been blown up with dynamite and  15 mon had been killed outright.    Thc-  wircs   leading   to   Telluride   have   been  cut by  the_ mincis.    The  new**  of the  riot came trom Ouray, Colorado, across  the mountains from Telluride, and was  telephoned into Ouray from Camp Bird  mine, which "is between Grey, and Telluride.   The Camp Bird is the property  of Thomas Walsh, a resident of Washington. .It is said that miners from Lib-  rcrty  Bell  and* Camp  Bird  mines  have  joined with the Smuggler strikers and  H00   men   now   surround   the   Smuggle;  mine.    Tho dispatch from Ouray statef  that   the   fighting  was   still   going   on  when the dispatch was sent.   The strike  in the Smuggler mine has been on foi  some timo  and  only recently an arbitration committee, appointed  at Telluride to try to effect a settlement of the  differences between the miners and the  owners of tho property.

EASTERN CANADIAN NEWS  Wired m Brief.  MONTREAL, July 3.���-Judge Buchanan, retired, died today.  BERLIN, Ont., July 3.���An old man,  named Schiller, 70 years of age, threw  himself in front of an approaching  train hero yesterday afternoon and was  instantly killed.  TORONTO, July 3.���Tiie tanners' section of tho hoard of trade mot here today and discussed the necessity of raising tho price of leather. It is said to  be altogether too low. An agreement  to raise prices is now in course of for-  ���v.uh'.tion.  TORONTO. .Tuly 3.���-The executive  of the Lord's Day Alliance has passed  a resolution condemning the action of  lion. Dr. Borden, minister of militia,  in permitting the Forty-eighth Highlanders of this city traveling by train  lo Buffalo on Sunday.  TORONTO, July 3.���M. Wost, a street  car conductor, was knocked down by  lightning during the thunder storm last  night and lay for several minutes unconscious. West had hold of a rope of  a trolley pole which was wet from rain,  when lightning struck the pole.  TORONTO, July 3.���Another regrettable flag incident is reported from Buffalo. 'It appears that the director of the  ethnological building took it upon himself to lower a festoon of 24 British  flags which had been placed over Ontario's archaeological exhibit and when  asked to replace'them refused because  some one' had objected- to British ensigns.  MONTREAL, July 3.���The inquiry  into the alleged paper makers' combine reopened this morning before judge  Taschereau, the paper makers-being on  the "stand all day. The principal witnesses were John R. Barber of Georgetown, Ont, and John MacFarlane of the  Canada Paper Company, Montreal. The  trend was to show that the company  was in no way responsible for the advance in prices, which was due, as in  the case of nearly evory other commodity, to an increase in prices of raw  materials.  WINNIPEG, July 3.���Writing in the  Free Press of this morning a railroad  union man gives the reasons why the  labor unions and the public at large of  Ontario and Quebec do not sympathize  with the trackmen's strike, but on the  contrary regard it as  ill  advised  and  absurd.    The main reason, he says, is  that .the C. P. R. pays higher wages in  the province of Quebec than either the  Grand Trunk or the government railway system,  whilst in  Ontario wages  are also higher than those paid by the  Grand Trunk.    Nevertheless, while the  trackmen have struck for still higher  wages on the C." P. R., the members of  the   association   on   the   Grand   Trunk  and International remain at work under  a lower scale, thus leading the- public  to   believe  that  they   are  satisfied   to  work on these two roads for less than  is paid by the C. P. R., and giving currency to the impression that, in ordering a strike on the C. P. R. Mr. Wilson  was actuated by some motive other than  a desire to better the condition of the  members of the order.   The writer goes  on to say:   "Here in the west conditions  are somewhat similar.    There are now  two systems in Manitoba���the Canadian  Pacific and the Canadian Northern, with  whicli the Northern Pacific and Manitoba  has  been incorporated. ' It is well  known to all that the .Canadian Pacific  pays  its_ trackmen higher  wages  than  the Canadian Northern and as a matter  of fact it pays higher wages than the  Great   Northern  and   Northern  Pacific,  just south  of  the  line;   nay,   it pays  higher than most of the .roads .running  into  St.   Louis,  where Mr.  Wilson resides.- This being the case, the public,  including the great body  of" men  belonging to other organizations, cannot  understand why this strike should have  been ordered on the C. P. R., whilst the  trackmen on roads operating in similar  territories, north and south of the line,  which pay a lower rate of wages, should'  remain at work.   The better course, the  only logical course, would have been~to'  compel'the roads paying the lower wages  to level  up to the C.  P.  R.  scale and  then, if need be, to strike on all in order to * secure a still higher rate from  all.    I  have  the   best ,of  reasons   for  knowing that the reports lately printed  to the effect that the C. P.' R. was willing  to arbitrate are absolutely without foundation.    Arbitration  would have to be  canied on by the labor bureau at Ottawa,   a  department  of  the  Dominion  government.   But with what face could  the government officer ask the C. P. R.  to'put up its wages another notch, when  it   has  all   along  been   paying  higher  wages than the government's own railway.   How, indeed, could they ask the  company to make  a  further  increase,  while Mr. Wilson is tacitly admitting  that he and his fellow members of the  Trackmen's Association are content to  work for a lower rate on the Canadian  Northern and on the great majority of  American and Canadian roads.    Can it  -ever-come-to-arbitration-to-let_it_pay_  as low  a rate as these other lines in  Canada   and   the   United   States.     Mr.  Shaughnessy would  not, of course, resort to such a step as that.    He feels  that the C. P. R. is paying all that, under   the   circumstances,   it   should   be  asked to pay, and is profundly sorry for  the   men   that  they   should   have   followed 'M'.\   Wilson   in   his   ill-advised  course.  -As I said there will be no arbitration.     Public   oi-inion-Js   with   the  company, and that being the case the  company is sure to, win.    It would be  better for all concerned for the track*  men in the province of Manitoba and  the   northwest  territories  to   ask   Mr.  Wilson  to call the strike off, and not  order a fresh one until, as a preliminary step, ho has forced other lines in  Canada and tho United States to" come  up to the C. P. R. scale."  TORONTO, July 3.���Nearly all the  striking trackmen in Ontario west of  Toronto have returned to work. The  men vainly expected that some of the  other orders of railroad workers would  have gone out in sympathy ere this.  The company has so patroled its lines  and made repairs to track with flying  gangs that it is now apparent to the  men that so slight had the operation  of the road been affected or is likely  to be for many months through the  strike that "they have resolved not to  risk their jobs any longer.  ST. JOHNS. July 3.���The striking  trackmen are returning to work, being  utterly disgusted with the inaction of  the Montreal committee and apprehensive that Wilson is only holding it together for his own glorification.  MONTREAL, July 3. ��� President  Shaughnessy of the C. P. R. in an interview tonight emphatically denied the  intimation of an evening paper that his  mission to Ottawa today .had anything  whatever to do with the dispute between the trackmen and the company.  When he saw the strikers some three  weegs ago and delivered his message  to the men, Mr. Shaughnessy says his  personal connection with the affair completely ceased, it having been placed entirely in the hands of the general manager of the company.  WHITE RIVER, Ont, July 3.���Striking trackmen here are endeavoring to  molest and interfere with trackmen sent  to take their places.   The company has  ���made several arrests. The' superintendent here states that the men working for the company will be protected  with the full force of the law.  Queen Alexandra and the Nurses.  LONDON, July 3.���Queen Alexandra,  in company with the king and princesses  Louise and Beatrice, this afternoon received 770 Victoria jubilee nurses on the  lawn of Marlborough House and distributed decorations to a number of the  nurses who have just returned from  South Africa and others who have been  engaged in city and outdoor i*elief work.  Her majesty said: "It is a pleasure to  receive you and help you to carry on  your noble work begun by our deeply  beloved queen Victoria. It is a satisfaction to be associated -with you in your  labor .of love. I can't imagine a more  holy calling than yours. I pray tnat  God's blessing may' be bestowed on  your noble work and that he will have  you in his keeping." '��� .   -  Calamity Howlers. *: "  LONDON, July 3.-���During the debate  today in_the house of commons on naval  estimates the cabinet ministers were  heckled on all sides regarding the condition of the navy. Members asserted  that the British Mediterranean fleet was  especially inadequate to meet French  and Russian squadrons, saying that it  was undermanned and unequipped, especially with modern guns; that it  lacked colliers and the coal depots were  all exposed to an enemy's fire. The  members generally predicted that in  case of war the admiralty would break  down as completely as tho war office  did. H. O. Arnold Foster, secretary to  the admiralty, in replying referred tb  the great demand onUhe admiralty for  service in South Africa and China amd  promised to strengthen the .Medterra-  nean fleet when new battleships were  available arid to add to the fleet cruisers  and torpedo boat destroyers.

And Starts a Stampede for the District Lying Between Corn  ���  and Summit Camps.  CRESTON, July 3.���For the past two  weeks tho people of this town have  been in the throes of a placer mining  excitement and even at this late date  "it-is-impossible-to-say���whether��� there,  is anything to warrant the excitement  which is being shown or not. The excitement was started by a siwash who  made his appearance in town with some  remarkably rich gold rock. He showed  his find to police constable Wilson,  who is stationed in the town, and the  result was that the constable and tho  Indian started out for the place where  the rock was supposed to havo come  from, an assay made from the' same  having given returns of $98 in gold.  When the Wilson party camo back and  made known the result of the assay  and further announced that the ledge  had been found and located there was a  perfect stampede from Creston and  Kuskonook.  The Wilson"locations aro said to have  been made upon a hill between Corn  and Summit creeks, a few miles from  Creston, the discovery being in a small  bluff in which the ledge has been exposed, and those who arrived on the  scene somewhat later have staked the  entire section in the hope of catching  a piece of the lead. Tho Wilson discovery is said to be a good strong ledge  and if work upon it shows that it is  in place the property will have a good  speculative value. It is not known as  yet that any of the reck taken by the  locaters from the find has been assayed,  and some doubt has been thrown upon  the Indian's integrity by reason of his  actions subsequent to the announcement  of the discovery. Naturally everyone  was anxious to get a slice of a gold  property which promised as high as $90  to the ton, and in consequence the Indian at once created a market for his  services as-a guide. A syndicate composed of Jack Hampson, W. P. Sloane  and R. J. Long were the first to strike  a bargain with the Indian after he had  returned from piloting Wilson to the  find. They made a dicker with him  whereby in return for $15 in hand delivered the Indian was to show them  where the rock which he had brought  to town had come from. The party  made a start, but the first night out the  Indian gave them the slip. A week was  then put in by tho anxious prospectors  despite the heavy rain, but they could  find nothing ,and returned to town very  skeptical of Indians and their mining  romances. . ���   -..  HENLEY ON THAMES, July 3.���The  Henley regatta opened today formally,  although owing to the large number of  entries  for the Thames' challenge cup  three heats in the contest for that trophy  were   rowed   yesterday - afternoon  and  were won by Trinity Hall, Cambridge;  the School of Mines Rowing Club and  the  Kingston  Rowing  Club.    The  results today were as follows:    Wyfold  challenge   cup���First   heat:    Kingston  -Rowing Club beat Trinity College, Oxford.    Kingston's time was 8:08.    The  Grand challenge cup���First heat:    Leander Epwing Club beat New College,  Oxford.     Time     7:09.     Second     heat:  Pennsylvania  University  beat   London  Rowing Club by three lengths.    Time  7:01 2-5.   Thames challenge cup���Fourth  heat:     Trinity   Hall,   Cambridge,   beat  the London Rowing Club.    The regatta  began under favorable conditions.   The  sun was bright and warm and'a cool  breeze was blowing off the towpath. The  attendance, however, does not equal the  expectations. Comparatively few American flags were visible.   The Pennsylvania crew came down to their boat house  at 11:30 a. m.   They all declared themselves fit and confident.   Leander, which  was to meet New College at 12:35 p. m.,  went out for a spin, but the Pennsylva-  nians did not embark till they went to  the starting point.    "Bob" CookMn his  final summary of the Pennsylvanian's  prospects   said:     "No  American   crew  was ever at Henley with better pros-'  pects.. They are in splendid condition  and confident.   They, will, in my opin-.  ion, meet Leander in the finals when, I  fear, the Englishmen will beat them."  The Pennsylvanians undoubtedly won  their  heat in great style.    They were  never   extended,  and   it  is  now  freely  -admitted by those who thought the Le-  anders  had  a  certainty  for  the  grand  challenge cup that they are extremely  dangerous.    "I don't like the looks of  it," said the London crew's coach to a  representatives, of the Associated Press,  but   V never "thought   the- Americans  would show such capability." When umpire  Pittman's  launch   arrived  at  the  starting point the crews were waiting.  The most encouraging feature was the  perfect    nonchalance * the    Americans  showed while waiting.    Without delay  Mr. Pittman started them on their journey, Pennsylvania rowing 40 and London 41.    At the end of the island the  Americans  led  by half a  length.    Opposite Fawley court, which they did in  3:24,   the   Americans   were   clear, and  rowing 43.    They seemed to be rowing  a little short opposite the Leander enclosure and the London crew made their  final effort.- But it was no good.    The,  Pensylvanians   increased   the   distance  rapidly and  near  the grand stand  hit  up the stroke to 40 and then to 46, crossing the line at a terrific pace.    There  was practically no cheering". *  HENLEY, July 3.���Theodore Cook, an  Oxford oarsman, who rowed for his university against Cambridge and who  helpcd-coach-Harvard���has-written-the  following for the Associated Press: "The  weather today was perfect for the Pennsylvanian's first race, as the conditions  were absolutely equal for each starter.  The sun was fine and warm and the  wind was from an unusual quarter off  the Berkside shore and gave nope the  advantage, which would accrue to the  Bucks (Buckinghamshire) if the breeze  had blown off the bushes. Tho water  was slightly rippled, but not enough to  impede the blades in the least. As the  Pennsylvania boys came on the regatta  course to paddle down to the start they  received loud and general applause from  all sides of tho river. Tliey looked  brown, wiry and as well trained as  possible, considering the severe and secluded nature of their preparations on  a hill above the town, from which they  only came' down to row, without ever  watching the other crews from the tow-  path or even bringing their strength  against the other crews at all. They  looked far less nervous than I should  ever have imagined and a few of them  actually smiled as their shell was paddled to the starting post. This was very  different to the tense and stern faces  of both the Yale and Cornell crews on  the same occasion a year ago. The  Pennsylvanians were on the right side  of the river as you looked from the  start to the finish. The members of the  London Rowing Club crew averaged 168  pounds each, as against 164 pounds each  for the Pennsylvanians, but the Americans looked, far more' stocky and wiry,  and Mr. Low, the coach of the London  crew, who also watched from the umpire's boat, did not seem to like the  prospect at all. His fears were justified, for although his crew got ahead  for the first few strokes at 40, Pennsylvania whipping in at 41, soon cut  down the difference and began to go  ahead very quickly, getting a lead of a  quarter of a length at the first, with  the London Rowing Club hard behind  them, but the Englishmen were quite  unable to press the leaders and Pennsylvania passed Fawley court boathouse  cler.r and away, rowing well within  themselves at a level and a strong 38,  which suited them capitally. Number  five and number four were doing especially well at this point and John Gardiner, though his stylo is not attractive,  was doing just what his crew needed  and in the best way any stroke could  do it. They negotiated the half course  in three minutes and 24 seconds and  immediately began to take off the full-  pressure, which had lasted up to this  -time. The London crew spurted then,  but they only produced the effect of  falling still further back and the race  was practically over when Pennsylvania  passed the lawn of the Leander Rowing  Club, two lengths to the good. Soon  after this Gardiner broke his men out  of their easy gait, although there appeared no necessity whatever for doing  so and worked them up to nearly 40,  apparently with the object of. showing  the grand stand how strong the Pennsylvanians could finish if they liked.  The boat rolled at flrst under the change  of pace, but rapidly became steady again  and the blue and crimson-jerseys passed  the post three lengths ahead, doing their  hardest. The course was completed In  7 minutes 1 2-5 seconds."  TRYING   THE   YACHTS.  ROTHESAY, July 3.���In order to give  the Shamrocks a thorough test in open  waters, a triangular course was laid out  for today's race.    Starting at Garrick  Head,   thence  to  Holy   Island,  around  the Erin, thence 10 or 12 miles to the  southeastward,  around the Erin again  and  back  to the  starting point    Sir  Thomas   Lipton   invited   the   reporters  aboard the Erin to witness the racing.  But Mr. Watson canceled the Invitation,  desiring to preserve the secrecy with  which   he   has   futilely   endeavored   to  surround   the   challenger's movements:  The boats fetched-out of the bay under  jib  headed topsails.    A brisk easterly  breeze was ruffling the water and giving a fine wind all the way down.   Although  the  formal racing  commenced  at Garrick Head,' the boats were sent  off from Craigmore pier in racing order.   The challenger took up a position  on the weather bow of the older boat  as   she   crossed   the   line  and   rapidly  opened away, the Shamrock I. following  in her wake.   Off Ascot, three miles out,  the challenger led-by about half a mn-  ute.     Finding   the ,wind   contrary   the  original race plans were abandoned in  favor of a trial inside the firfh, and the  two yachts  started on a reach across.  Off Cumbra  the  challenger was  leading  by ,53  seconds.    Soon  after  they  sailed into a calf and the Shamrock I.  passed the Shamrock II. wide to windward.

BUFFALO, July. 3.���Dan MeLeod, th'e  Scotch wrestler, tonight won his match  with Tom Sharkey, the sailor-pugilist,  at the Broadway arsenal. The conditions of the match required MeLeod to  throw Sharkey twice within an hour,  catch-as-catch-can. Both ��� men were in  fine condition and there was not an uninteresting moment throughout the  struggle. Sharkey acted on the defensive and succeeded in holding the muscular little wrestler off for 44 minutes  and 30 seconds. MeLeod scored the  first fall after 19 minutes of hard work.  The struggle of the first round tired  MeLeod, while Sharkey was comparatively fresh. A succession of bridges  finally disposed of the sailor. Time of  last fall, 25 minutes 30 seconds. Charlie  Mitchell, the English pugilist, refereed.  TELEGRAMS IN BRIEF FORM  From Various Sources.

The practical utility of the report is very small except  for   historical   purposes.   For   instance,  ."^-the province is congratulated upon the  great expansion of the silver-lead mining'industry,  but,from cover tocovei*  (" there is not a word about the new con-  I editions  confronting  the  silver-lead   industry,  '���..���ere aro very few people in  - British   Columbia ��� who .are   worrying  then*   heads  about  an   increase   of  206  per cent in the output of lead last year.

If these advices are  correct they, to' some extent, at least,  invalidate, the goneral conclusions ar-  .rived at in", the report regarding the immediate future ��� of Atlin as ' a placer  camp. ' Thoy do not, however,"counteract the impression of hopeless gloom in  regard."to Atlin, whicli is the one result  of a careful reading 'of the report.  There is nothing of any interest in  tne repoit which has not. been forestalled by the pamphlet already issued  by the department except the report on  the Atlin country by Mr. Robertson.  As usual the report is built up out of  official reports by the various gold commissioners and mining recorders, whicli  are not particularly valuable and certainly far from interesting to read, and  a few notes dotted hero and there of  the personal observations of Mr. Robertson made on his flying trips through  the country. Some companies have contributed tables of mining and milling  costs and so forth, which contain valuable information of a technical kind.  The' Athabasca company in particular.  As all reputable puulic companies publish such documents, it is a great pity  they are not collected and published in  the annual reports.  In regard, to quartz  the position of  affairs is even worse in Atlin.    It appears from the report that tho country  rock of the district'is. of a soft porous  nature and has suffered surface enrichment by the same' flow of gold which'  enriched the creeks, arid what has been  mistaken for an enormous mass.of low  grade milling.ore is  merely ,a skin of  rock into which a little gold has-filtered  from above.    Of course there arc veins  in Atlin, but these veins have become  enriched on the surface from the same  cause as the porous country rock, only.  ,mpr.e^so. and���whenever���tested-at-dentli-  have not been shown- to maintain their  gold value.    As described by Mr. Robertson, the quartz resources of the district are not by any means tempting.  Apart from  the report on  Atlin  there  is nothing in the whole document which  shows   any  independent  research,   and  the compilation of the information contained   in   it  is  on, the  old   traditional  lines which certainly seem a little out  of date now that wc have more than  prospects  to show for our mining  industry in British Columbia.

According to it, placer mining  in the ordinary sense is practically at  an end, the area of the deposition of  gold in paying quantities being limited  to those creeks which have already been  worked  out or  nearly so.    As  for hydraulic mining difficulties of dump and  water make it impossible until the rights  of the placer claims are either sold ti  the hydraulic companies or abandoned,  and until all the hydraulicing on each  separate  creek   is  consolidated   in  tho  hands   of   one    company,   so   that    the  ground may be worked from the lowest  profitable point up stream.    It may be  pbserved, however that the report re:  The Economist is :of the opinion that  lacrosse attracted  more people to Nelson than any other event that was pulled off at the celebration. While lacrosse  is a popular game, it is no more so than  baseball.    On Monday  there  were over  500 paid admissions to see a ball game  alone at a time when there wore many  attractions, among others a circus, going on.    On Tuesday, when, there were  no  other  attractions,  1000, people  paid  the price of admission to' see both lacrosse  and  baseball,  and  over  600   remained through a rain storm in order  to see the baseball game finished.   Baseball is played in every village, town and  city in Canada, and is the one game that  most of the people understand.   It is the  one game that is regularly played in all  the large cities as an amusement venture, and good games appear to draw as  large crowds today as they did twenty  years  ago. " .  AUCTIONEERS.

NOT MADE.  \  Once there was a shy, apologetic Man  named   Buchanan  Meek,  who  lived  in  Chicago.    Ho  wore a  frightened  Smile  most of the time.   Mr. Meek believed in  the Golden Rule, although it seemed to  be costing him Money every Year.    He  never liked to hurt any one's Feelings  or inconvenience those with whom he  c,i*ne in contact, and -co he was always  backing out of the  Way and  Bagging  Pardon.    He h;*,d read in a Book somewhere tliat he who is Gentle and Considerate will find Sunshine wherever he  goes,  but ono cannot depend on these  ���   Weather.  Predictions.     He    had    lived  Years  without getting any Returns so  '    "far as he could  Figure.    He  had  been  ' -scattering Seeds of Kindness, but there,  had   been   a   steady   Failure   of   Crops.  Sometimes Mr. Meek would suspect that  there   was   something  wrong  wilh   his  System.    Jt seemed' to  him  that those  who got .put and made'Rough House and  ;   walked on other People usually secured  "    seats at the First Table, while flic difli-  .    dent and unobtrusive kind got nothing  ����� better than a belated sWhack at what  - -J.*ps 'left over.  /   \ ln this same  .wp.s  rown-of. Chicago there  man   named   Covington   Beefer.  lie was a walking Thunder Cloud'and  showed his Teeth when he talked.    He  .worked." along on the ^Principle that a  Man   is   Entitled   to   anything   he   can  Get.   -He  wouldn't take anything that  was Spiked  Down  unless  he  happened  to have a Nail Puller with him.    Mr.  Bcefer  was  good   to   himself.    He  was  a  self-made  Business   Shark   who   had  neglected   to.read   up  on  the  Brotherhood of Man.  x -., .Mr. Meek carried enough Milk of Hu-  *'-    Jlaan   Kindness- to   stock *a   fair-sized  'Creamery.    Pie could not find it in his  Heart" to buck through a lino of Shop-  ���   pel's,  extending across tho Sidewalk or  give a'frail Newsboy the Knee in order  to hurry him out of the way, so when  he was on the street they usually had  him Hemmed In like a piece of Insertion  and he was habitually lato in arriving  at the Offlco.  Mr. Beefer, however, would move up  the Street in a Bee Line, throwing tender young "Girls and doddering old Gen-  ^jrvJdeinen off into the Gutters/ cutting  =i=A^rough=a=covey=of^WTomen7=regardressT  .''���"'"���"Ad lifting them right and-Jeft like a  I jfeet" Sweeper. He never lost any  \ une, and- therefore had a Reputation  \Punctuality,  f.Uhe..evening when it came time to  /Home, Mr.; Beef er" would heave his  y\*ay  through  the  Swarm,  drag People  yoff the Platform, hunch his way into the  Car, pull a Small Boy out of a Seat and  Sauat in  Comfort  all  the  way home,  reading his Evening Paper.    Mr. Meek  would fuss around the outskirts of the  Crowd and  be shunted  back and  forth  a few times.   He did not believe in un-  i   seemly haste and rudeness, so he would  \ wait for tho others to get aboard rather  than work the Elbow Grind on refined  fl  Ladies, and as a consecucnco he usually  had the Privilege of riding on the back  Bumper.  But it was in.the Restaurant that the  soft-spoken and forbearing Mr. Meek  got all that was coming to him. A  waiter .would bring a clammy Napkin  and a glassful of shattered lee and then  lie .would go away and never come back.  Mr. Meek would sit there and Moan  and Murmur, occasionally lifting his  Finger, but they couldn't see him. And  what would Mr. Covington Beefer do  in this same auick-action Feedery? He  would come in and demand a Table all  to himself and. unless they gave him  a clock-work service the moment he  sat down, he would pound on the Ta-  ,ble and send for the Head Waiter and  *tyant to know what kind of third-class  Joint they were running. Then the  Head Waiter would apologize and put  the German Curse, on waiter number 19  for neglecting one of their best Customers. In a couple of minutes Mr.  Beefer would havo nearly everything  on the .Bill of Fare laid out in front of  him. Number 19 would be breaking  his Back to hold his Job, and the Head  Waiter would be hovering around in a  further effort to Square himself. And  Mr. Buchanan Meek would-still be folding the Napkin and watching the Ice  melt.  As a result of the occasional Blowing  Up and sending Dishes hack to the  Kitchen to be warmed over to suit him,  Mr. Beefer established a Reputation and  he commanded Respect. Every time lie  walked into the place they put on a  fresh Tablecloth and the Head Waiter  ii'*- would come around to brush away im-  NOTICE.

Mr. Beefer always began the degree Business with the Senegambian as  soon as ho found his number, and con-  secuently ho received four times tne  Attention for the samo Tip.  The tradesmen got onto the fact that  Mr. Meek would rather be Soaked than  raise an Argument, so they palmed off  last year's Hats on him and delivered  Glucose instead of Sugar and gave him  Rump Steak at the price of Sirloin. If  the Tobacconist had a cigar that was  a slow Seller, he pushed it out to Mr.  Meek because the latter was a nice,,  obliging Mark who' took what was cf-  fered him and then went out on tiptoe.  As for, Beefer, when he came in and began to file his Complaints, they opened  Fresh Boxes until they found one tiiif.  suited  him.   -  A great many canvassers and Agents  came around to lean against Mr. Meek  and take up his Time. He had been  posled ou the Bulletin Board of the  Grafters' Union as the Prize Pudding,  lie never would repulse a Fellow Cre ���-  .ture who was honestly endeavoring tu  earn a Livelihood, so they filed in one-,  after another aud made u_\.e a Burden  to him. But thoy Kept away from Beefer. Mr. Beefer began to bark like a  Prairie Wolf the moment one of then  put a ��� Nose inside his Ojnce and Mr.  Smooth Salesman usually was glad to  make \i Run for it without waiting to  catch  the Elevator.  In the course of time the knowledge  that ho was being Bilked and Horns-  woggled and Imposed Upon began to  embitter tht nuiet little Man. He still  believed that a Soft Answer turrsoth  away Wrath, but he wonaered wny it  was -the policeman always selected him  as the one to be shoved along. He had  a Cheery* Smile for the Liuie Ones,'so  the Tough Kids at tht Corner whistled  through their Teeth at him and cal'io"  him "Lizzie.".- He began to revise hi*  Theories of Life, for it seemed evident  that .the Scrapper who goes around ���_���:*.-  cuting Call-Downs and howling for his  Rights, is the only one who gets a bh'jjv  for his White Alley?  So Mr. Me->k decided that he won]*.!  shift his Tactics and begin some noisy  Bluffing and compel Pro'Me to uoti'***'  him. He said his Money .was as goot! a .  anybody's and% he did not propose io  be Run Over any longer, lie decided  to start in at the Restaurants, Decades  that -was whore they had trampled on  him for Twenty Years. Hotiran.lv a c-u-  ple of Hooters to fix his Courage and.  then he went into a busy Cafe. As  usual, a waiter brought him a limp Napkin and a couple of pounds of Ice and  then evaporated. Mr. Meek waited live  minutes and then all .the ^accumulated  Wrath that had been simmering ami  steaming for Years broke forth in one  mighty Protest. He pound od. o.i the  Table, just as he had seen Mr. Beefer  do. He denounced the place as being  worse than a Tramp's Boarding House.  Jie^called=fpi=the*-Head=-Waiter-=in=ne>-.'o-  and strident Tones. He announced th .t  he would register his Roar with no one  but the Boss. He had noticed that a  successful Bluffer always waves tne Underlings out of the way and demands au  Audience with the Main Pi op.  It seemed to Mr. Meek that he was  giving a very fait* Imitation. \ He know  that when Mr. Beefer arose and' declared himself he always Cot Away with  it. But perhaps Mr. Buchanan Meek  didn't do it just right. At any rate-,  the manager of tho Cafe ran up and  Handed him a couple. Then Mtv Meak'.'*.-  True Nature asserted itself. He began  to Apologize and that'was tho fjignal  for a Close-in. Three-Waiters beat nim  down to a Gasp and ran him out.to the  Street and tried to upset a hansom Cab  with him.  As soon as Mr, Meek recovered and  sat up on tho Cobble Sttr.U's, .ie made a  Vow that he would never again speak  abovo a Whisper.  Moral: Kickers are Porn and not  Made.

Peel has thirty  days to serve in the Nelson jail for  tarrying firearms. v.;. V  The load of rock which" was drawn by  Mike Scully's team on the stoneboat  on Tuesday was weighed yesterday and  found to turn the scale at 4930 pounds.  This makes a pretty 'good-load for a  dead pull, but Scully keeps good horses  for good work.  Of those_who subscribed to the fund  for the Dominion Day celebration, 63  have not yet been called on for the  amount of" their subscriptions, which  total $531.50.

R. Cameron,-as the  executive committee want to close-up  their affairs on Saturday.  Nelson has a sensational preacher of  the Bantiet persuasion, named Morgan.  He is attempting in frothy sermons to  show that the city of Nelson is engaged  In illegal practices and winking at vice.  An inspection of the police court docket  of Nelson will show that there is nothing in what Morgan is ranting oyer,  vThere were no bidders yesterday*'at  the sheriff's sale of the interest of J. A.  MacKinnon & Company in the Hampton group of claims on Springer creek,  or-the sale of-Herbert Cuthbert's interest in the Blend mineral claim on the  west fork' of Rover creek. In consequence both sales were postponed until  Saturday, July 6th, at the same hour in  front of the sheriff's office.     -  The lacrosse game between the'Medicine Hat and Nelson teams, to play off  the tio which resulted' in Tuesday's  match, has been postponed until Saturday. * In the interval -the Medicine Hal  boys' will go over to Grand Forks . Ic  try conclusions with the Grand Forks,  team. During their brief stay in the  city the boys from the territories made,  many friends and a good gate may be  expected at the Saturday match.   -  Charles Hunt was run in by the police  last evening upon a charge of gambling.  In addition to being charged with gambling, Hunt is also suspected of having  given those who went against his game  considerably the worst of it. He war-  taken beforo J. K. Strachan, J.

The klootchman's race for the shawl  of the McDover tartan was run off yes-  torday afternoon under the direction of  Charles A. Waterman, and was won by  Miss Lo of the Kootenay tribe.

A' number of the bridgemen on the  Kootenay branches, have gone out in  sympathy'with.: the striking trackmen,  but otherwise the local situation remains unchanged. The best of feeling  continues to prevail/This was well evidenced yesterday when a small slide  came down on the Boundary branch,  near Shields. Tho trackmen on this sec-'  tion were on strike, of course, but the  foreman" p.t once reported the slide to'  the company just as promptly as if he  were drawing pay and in a short time  the track was cleared.  E. -B. McDermid, accountant in the  ofliQevpf^he Duncan Mines, has received  ���notice^'fj'om W. B'ddis, president of the.  Institute of Chartered Accountants of  Ontario, notifying him that he had been  successful in his examination for admission to the Institute. The examination for admission to this association  [is particularly rigidand includes an examination in law as well as in accounting. That success in an examination  of this kinds means something may be  gathered from the circumstance that at  present there are but 60 members in  this Institute, which is'the best recognized in the Dominion. '    '    '.  The full court has sustained the decision of Mr. Justice Walkem in the  case of Lawr vs. Parker. This was an  action for a declaration of title to some  mineral ground on Morning mountain,  the plaintiff as the owner of the Rebecca mineral claim applying to have  the same declared a valid location as  against tho Blue Jay, owned by the defendant, Charles Parker. The Lawr  title was attacked on the ground that  the Mineral Act had not been complied  with in several particulars, in view of  which the Blue Jay claim had been  staked over it. Among other things  there was no work done upon tho Rebecca mineral claim and no record made  of any intention of performing the necessary work upon any adjoining claim.

Robitaille is the name of a Frenchman whose peculiar views on the salvage law has got him into trouble, so  much so, in fact, that he now stands  charged with an offense which might  send hini over the road for three years.  Robitaille's^ trouble is in connection  with a couple "of landing floats belonging to the tramway company whicli got  adrift from.their moorings at the tramway, park. The floats were picked up  by Robitaille, who refused to give them  up unless the' tramway company would  pay him-.?25. " Manager Mason of the  tramway company was willing to pay  $5 for the return of. the. floats, but he  considered that- $25 was more than the  floats were worth. He accordingly consulted the provincial police to see what  he should do. As a result he and provincial constable Young paid a ,visit" to  the Frenchman at his camp and made,a  formal demand for possession of the  floats. Robitaille not only declined to  give up possession of the floats but made  a show of force when the police officer  attempted to take possession.- The result was that officer Young not only  took possession of the floats but" put  the irons on Robitaille as well and  brought him to the provincial jail. His  friends secured bail for him in the sum  of- $500 for his appearance yesterday  morning. In the meantime he had secured the services of a lawyer to get  him out of his troubles and the lawyer  asked for a remand until Tuesday next,  which was granted, the same bail being accepted for the prisoner's appearance.  The criminal code is very strict in  cases of this kind, it being an offense  =punishable^with=three=i.yearsMmprison-=  ment to even refuse'to give up any timber found adrift in the lake; or to make  any attempt to ��� render identification of  the same difficult after it has been  picked up. -���  Mining Records,  Seven new locations have been recorded at the Nelson record oflice.

This means that the city has saved  the accrued interest upon the debentures, which at the time of the sale  amounted to $lt50, and which it was  thought the purchasers in the first instance had demanded. This makes the  city the gainer by this amount. Compared with the former .offer, which was  hung up by reason of some flaw in the  legality of the debenture issue, the city  is the gainer under the new sale by  something over $1000, and. as against  the present offer as first construed, by  something close upon $2000. The money  for the debentures was paid through  the local branch of the Bank of Commerce.  Nelson Debentures Sold.

If the Ledge's influence in political cam-,  paigns is to be measured by results,  "Bob". Green need not pay much heed  to the Ledge's strictures now that tnere  is no campaign in sight.
