The agreement which was ratified by,, the shareholders gives the company taking the bond the option of paying ?250,00D in cash for the two groups,  or of paying $150,000 in cash and 25 per  cent of the stock of the company to be  organized to develop the property. A  ������isli payment of $5000 has been made,  and the other payments are spread out  in the cr.se of the $2b'O,'oJ0'propositi ...  over a period of a little over a year. In  the, event of the part cash and part  stock proposition being decided upon  the payments in cash remain the same  its in the first offer until the total of  (���150,000.is, reached, which will take less  than a year.

ST.   PAUL,   July   4.���A   dispatch   to  the Associated Press from Havre, Montana, gives the following account of the  Groat Northern train robbery and the  names of the persons shot by the robbers. "The injured include Gertrude M.  Smith   of  Tomah,   Wyoming.    A   passenger who leaped from a window received a bullet through the right arm,  but was not seriously hurt.   Mr. Douglas   of  Clancey,   Montana,   a  traveling  auditor for the Montana division of the  Great Northern, was shot through 'the  left arm near the shoulder.   Brakeman  Whiteside of Havre, Montana, was shot  through the right arm, near the shoulder, shattering the bone.   He is seriously  injured.    As the Great Northern flyer,  train, No. 3, was leaving Malta, conductor Smith noticed what he supposed to  be a tramp on the front end of the mail  cai* next to the-engine.    He tried to  drive  him  off after the train-started,  but.the man pulled a revolver and said  he had better go' back or he would shoot  him.    The   conductor   returned   to   the  coach and" as sheriff Griffin was on the  train, arranged with him to arrest the  man at the next station. When the train  approached    Exeter,    the    next    siding  west  of  Malta, : the  conductor signaled  a second time,  but the train did-not  stop.    Engineer Jones was during -this'  time covered by a gun and w;as told by  the supposed  tramp  that  if "the train  stopped he would kill him.    When the  train reached "a-point three miles east  of Wagner the engineer was forced to  stop and two more men appeared armed  with   Winchesters.    The  robbers  commenced, firing   and   the   passengers   at  first   thought  the   children   were   celebrating the 4th.    Brakeman Whiteside  got off .the train and was shot through  the right arm 'near the shoulder.    The  conductor notified all the passengers as  fast as he 'could go through the train  to keep out of sight, which they, did by  getting down in the aisle of the cars.  A' sheep" lierder riding by about a quarter, of a mile' from where the ��� express  car was blown up was fired upon by the  robbers.    The bullets struck his saddle,  but did not inflict any serious wounds.  ���The   sheep   herder   reported   the   robbery at Wagner station about 3:35 and  a posse of menjfrom Malta started for  the scene of the robbery and a posse  from Glasgow, Montana, 75 miles east,  also started within 25 minutes by special   train.     A  special   train   was   also  started from Havre with doctors to attend  the wounded.    On the  arrival  of  No. 3 at Wagner sheriff Griffin organized  a posse of 10 men and started on the  trail.    After the. robbers blew  up the  express car they started - south  for the  Little Rockies. ..The' reward is $5000 a  head dead or alive.    The robbers cannot possibly escape, as quick work was  done in getting.the best gun men in the  country   on   their   trail. ' The   amount  taken is not yet known here.  Upon receipt of the news of the hold-  _up__of _the__Great Northern flyer near  Wagner, a reward of $5000 in gold-for"  the apprehension of the robbers was at  once posted by the Great Northern officials. All the facts in the case were at  once communicated to David Allman,  chief of the Great Northern secret service. The large amount of the reward  offered is taken as evidence that the  booty, was heavy, but the exact amount  taken has not yet been given out. News  of the robbery and the reward was  wired to all points on the line and the  police and detective force in all the  important points in the western territory were notified.  HELENA, Montana, July 4.���It is  stated here that the three men > who  held up Great Northern* train No. 3,  westbound, near Malta, Montana, yesterday secured $4000 in cash in addition to securities of considerable value.

COLUMBUS. .Ohio, July. 4.���Sergeant  Thomas Spaulding, United States army,  was killed today at the Columbia barracks by sergeant Albert Johnston. The  latter blew off his own head with an  army rifle. The men had served 10 and  18.years respectively. They were aJone,  when a dispute arose today, the nature  .of which is unknown! Two shots were  heard. Several officers and men rushed  into the room. Spaulding was sitting  in a chair with a bullet through his  heart. Johnston was found dead later.  He apparently had picked up the rifle,  fired at Spaulding and then rushed into  a closet, where he discharged a bullet  into his mouth. Both , men were detailed on recruiting duty.

BERLIN, July 4.���The Treber-Trock-  nung (grain drying) Company of Cassel, whose insolvency was announced  today, is one of the most prominent  German industrial undertakings, but  has for a long time been sharply attacked in the financial press owing to  its methods of doing business. It had  declared for five years dividends ranging from 25 to 50 per cent, largely  through the fancy prices of the machinery sold by its branches, which were  established in nearly all the continental  countries. The balance sheets were  never understood, so it was impossible  to establish the concern's actual conditions. It had recently been short of  funds and succeeded in raisins $80,000  in England. A scheme was talked of  since the troubles began for organizing  a trust upon the basis of the Treber-  Trocknung Company with American  capital. The company was originally  engaged in utilizing breakers and other  waste product and lately patented a  method of wood distillation which  proved worthless. The company's shares  have been much used in speculation,  once reaching 845. They were quoted  at  170   before  the assignment  of  the  The returns of the port of Nelson for  the month of June show - a very gratifying increase in the trade of the district as compared with the corresponding month in the previous year. The  value of the dutiable imports for the  month! was $75,733, and of the free imports $24,230, making a total of $99,963.  The collections fOr the same period were'  $18,124.80. For the corresponding month  of, 1900 the figures were: Dutiable imports $56,957, free imports $8772, making a total of $65,729; and the. collections for the same period were $17,428.33.  It will be noticed thatNvhile there is a  heavy increase in the value of dutiable imports there is not the same in-  -crease^in^theF-value^of^tlic^coll.e.ctionsJor^  the month. This circumstance is explained by the fact that during the past  month the Hudsons Bay Company and  the Turner, Beeton Company make extensive imports of goods in bond, the  duty upon which is not paid until the  goods are released from bond. The, very  heavy iscrease in the value of the free  imports for the same month is also explained by the fact that during the  month there were large imports of brick  and mining and other machinery taken  into East Kootenay in connection with  tlie opening up of the resources of that  section.  The exports for June also show a  considerable increase over those of the  corresponding month of the previous  year, an increase even greater than the  figures unexplained would suggest in  themselves. The value of the exports  for the month is given at $183,297, as  against $145,168 for the month of June,  1900. The figures, however, do not indicate the total gain made during the  past 'month, as by reason of the new  regulations of the customs department  the ports of Nelson and Rossland no  longer get credit for the matte and  bullion shipments from the Nelson and  Trail smelters, such exports being now  credited to ,the last port of exit, which  in the case of these shipments is Niagara Falls and Prescott, Ontario. This  new ruling also affects the volume of the  lead exports of the port of Nelson, as it  has transferred to New Westminster a  consideiVble volume of the lead exports  of East Kootenay. When the figures  are read in the light of these explanations it will be seen that the district  has made very considerable gains during the past 12  months.  Three Drowned.  TOLEDO, Ohio, July 4.���Three persons were drowned in the river fronting Wallbridge Park today. They wore  George F. Hirth, proprietor of a job  printing office; Helen Hirth, his sister;  and Aggie Felker. These with three  others went out to the park to spend  the day. While having a row on the  river a sailboat came bo near that r.  collision was feared and in a rush to  the other side of the boat it was overturned. The others were saved without injury.  HENLEY, July 4.���The second day  of the Henley regatta, which ends tomorrow, was signalized by another victory for the Americans. The oarsmen  of the University of Pennsylvania defeated the Thames Rowing Club, thus  winning their second heat. As the.Le-  anders defeated the Belgian ��� crew, the  Pennsylvanians will meet the Leanders  in the final heat for the grand challenge  cup tomorrow. The results of the heats  today were as follows: Grand challenge  cup, third heat���The Leander Rowing  Club beat the Belgian crew by three-  quarters of a length; time 7:08. Fourth  heat���Pennsylvania University beat the  Thames Rowing Club by three lengths;  time  7:22.        .   "'-..,...  The conditions were even better than  yesterday."v. A.bright ,hot sun was shining and there was no wind.   There was  a   decided   increase   in   the   attendance  and American flags were very liberally  displayed.    Soon  after   11  o'clock   the  Leanders, paddling to the starter for a  race w"ith the Belgians and rowing splen-i  didly, were loudly applauded all along  ithe   course,   but   their   reception   was'  quite eclipsed by that given the Americans a few minutes later.   The "contrast  in the style of the two  crews,  whom  everybody expect to see fight it out on  the final heats, was more marked than  ever.   There was only five minutes   difference between the two races,* and no  sooner had umpire Willan sent the Le-:  anders  and   Belgians'  off   than   umpire  Pitman's launch, took its place to start  the'Americans  and  the  Thames "'crew.'-  The former seemed:even more confident  than yesterday.   There was a splendid  start and the, Pennsylvanians had three-  fourths of a length lead before the top;  of the island: was reached.    They did  half the distance in 3:30.7 Their oppo-.  nents did the half in 3:42.   Passing the  grand stand the Americans spurted and  they rowed past with a dozen strokes at  the rate of 41 to the minute.   The Americans had, a very friendly-reception and  a-number-of:-.their countrymen succeeded  in giving them.; a very respectable  college yell.   Ellis Ward, .the American  coach, who was in the umpire's launch,  expressed himself as being thoroughly  satisfied  and confident.    The Leander-  . Belgian race was a hard one, but not so  severe as expected.    The Leanders got  away  with  surprising  rapidity  at the  rate cf 36 and secured a good length's  lead at the tip of the island.   The Belgians soon started a rapid gait and began  to  come  up,  but they could  not  catch'the Leanders.   -Off Fawley court,  which they did in 3:24, the Leanders  were   again   clear.     Off  the   Grosvenor  Club  the Belgians  spurted and  nearly  got up level.   A splendid race home followed, the Leanders winning by a bare  length.    The   Leanders   finished   vei*y  strong and in the opinion of experienced  men they could have made much better  time.   On one point they all agreed and  that was that tomorrow's meeting between the Leanders and the Americans  will be a desperate race.   The Leanders  Aave=greatIy^imm'o.v_ed.^-They_now_pulL  badly. When near the Leander lawn,  about a Quarter of a mile from home,  both the Gardiners (Nos. 7 and 8) woke  up suddenly and the whole crew got  far more lively, though they did not  row as long as they should have done,  and when they quickened to 41 in order  to beat the already beaten crew by a  little further distance they were by no  means rowing as neatly as yesterday,  and the completed course was timed at  only 7 minutes and 22 seconds. I attach little Importance to a time test  in comparison as a general rule and  shall not emphasize that. Leanders did  12 seconds better all over just before,  because the Belgians were a much faster  crew than_the Thames, but it must be  remembered that Leander had not much  difficulty and though the day was, dead  calm it was not quite as fast'as yesterday because there, was not ,that slight  following breeze which helped everyone, yesterday. In spite of this'Leander  improved in their previous performance  and their improvement has not yet  finished.  ... ���  "But far the more important is the  fact that today the Englishmen reached  Fawley no less than six seconds faster  than the Pennsylvanians, and when the  two meet each other, though there will  not be that difference, because Leander  never got further ahead than they could  help and the difference in pace necessitated, Pennsylvania will have a- very  serious effect upon that middle half  mile, which has hitherto been such an  easy thing for them. ,,7 ;  "At 9 o'clock on .Saturday morning  the mayor and corporation of Henley  will give a breakfast to both the Pennsylvanians, and Belgians: iii: the town  hall and' every preparation' is being  made to give both crews a royal send-  off after their visit. A curious contrast  to, the solemn aloofness, of the Pennsylvanians, who have never even seen  anything of the regatta, is that Leander  rowed four of their men from the eight  in the stewards' race and that Payne  and Burnell were to have rowed a third  time at 6 o'clock against the Belgian  pair, but were scratched. No..better  contrast could be suggested o* the way  in which English and American oarsmen-gain their experience and training.  The -first race all' they can and see  all. they can. -The second row against,  the watch. We shall see the result tomorrow."  It is understood that vLeander' proposes to attempt to outrow'Pennsylva-  nia before, reaching Fawley court, believing that the Americans have not  the staying qualities to stand the pun7  ishment of a hot start. When these'  reports were communicated to coach  Ward tonight, the latter said: "It  makes little difference where7the^ Leander- makes; her spurt, Pennsylvania  will be rowing all the time., We can  take our medicine :at-.J:he'star,L',in..-tlieJ  middle or at the'llnish.. We have been  rowing and not talking and we are not  going to talk until the flag flies at-the  finish  tomorrow."

The Pennsylvanians have  shown themselves to be in the pink of  condition.  HENLEY. July 4.���Theodore Cook,  the well-known Oxford oarsman, wrote  the. following today for the Associated  Press: "Again the Pennsylvanians have  enjoyed the best of good fortune in  weather and opponent for their second  victory in the way towards the final  of the grand challenge cup. There was  absolutely no wind at all through the  race and neither station enjoyed the  least advantage. The Pennsylvanians  were at the post first, on the Berkshire  sdo, which is usually not so good as  tho other. Stroke Gardiner was sitting  comfortably at his ease with his oar  handle resting on his knees and the only  man in the crow who looked the least  worried was captain Flickwere, who,  no doubt, realized his responsibility  more than the rest, for the race was an  easy one and a slight accident might  wreck the Pennsylvanians' chances.  They made 41 full strokes in the flrst  minute, though these were far from  neat, for there was much splashing and  the first four oars were nearly all late,  while seven was not doing as well as  usual. This, however, made no difference, for the Thames crew could only  get 39 and had lost three-fourths of a  length by the time the island was  passed. The Pennsylvanians continued  at full steam, going further and further  away from their weak adversaries. They  reached half way in 3 minutes 40 seconds, a time which deserves careful remembrance. Soon after this the Thame.-;  men were completely out of the hunt  and the Pennsylvanians settled into that  lively paddling at half steam at 36 .tor  which they are so famous. It is extremely useful to nurse a crew which  has established a good lead and save up  its powers until they are wanted again,  but it has now been seen in this race  for the last time. While they were going thus easily the Pennsylvanians got  rather careless. Four was rowing well,  but neither six nor seven were as good  as they should have been. But Flickers  was rowing with great steadiness and  kept his men together capitally, while  Eisenhray (No. 2)' also did especially  good work just when the stroke as a  whole were rolling and splashing rather  Cricket and Other Sports.  ROTHESAY, Firth of Clyde, July 4.���  The two Shamrocks started off Cralg-  more today for,a long leg to windward.  At 11:45 the Shamrock II led. The  Shamrock I was to windward and sailing faster. She added more and more  to windward and when they each wero .  put about, five miles out, the older boat |  was one-eighth of a. mile ahead. The  Shamrock II soon afterwards became becalmed and Shamrock I went far ahead.  Seeing the challenger's plight, the Shamrock I returned for a fresh start In close  company. The fluky breeze made a fair  ���comparison^difficult.==ivlith=sp|nnakers  set for a long run the challenger gained  1 1-2' minutes, but the breeze failing  the Shamrock I overhauled the challenger and secured the lead, showing  decided superiority in a drifting match.  Clearing Cumbria the challenger caught  a better breeze and picked up until she  lapped the older boat's auarter. Running up the Firth both yachts carried  everything that would draw and neither  of them gained a fathom on the other,  the run eventually winding up in a  drifting match. The whole trial was  inconclusive. There was nothing to indicate that in light winds the cup challenger is In any way superior to the  Shamrock I.  LONDON, July 4.���The Oxford-Cambridge annual cricket match, which  commenced this morning at Lords, was  played before a fashionable crowd. The  teams wero equally matched, but neither  was up to the usual 'varsity standard.  The Cambridge eleven commenced the  batting.

VICTORIA, July 4.���Victoria had a  little flag incident today. Georgo  Jeeves, a contractor and a leading spirit  in all patriotic demonstrations, took exception to the display of an American  flag at the store of a merchant during  a band concert given by the Fifth Regiment band, which was playing just previous to the departure of an excursion  to Port Angeles, and tore it down.  Jeeves asked the merchant to remove the  flag, and being told that anybody who  removed it would get "licked" tore the  flag down.   That ended the incident.  m  ���-*  Who Got the Money?  SAN FRANCISCO, July 4.���Concerning the report that a shortage has been  discovered in the San Francisco branch  mint, the Chronicle today says: "Six  bags of gold, each containing ?5000 in  $20 gold pieces, have disappeared from  the mint and no trace of the coins have  been .discovered, aithough superintendent Leach ' and his force, assisted by.  director of the mint Roberts and his  staff of experts, have been at work on  the mystery since June 29th. The annual  count of the coin, amounting to ?25,-  000,000, began last Friday. On Saturday  six bags were found to be missing from  the cashier's vault. As the cashier's  books tallied with those of the other departments, the officials were forced to  the conclusion that somebody acquainted with the inside affairs of the mint  had taken the money. Both superintendent Leach and director Dimonick  declared that suspicion could not point  to casmcr Cole, as his books are in perfect condition and called for the amount  missing;. _ __ THE  TRIBUTE:  NELSON, B.

The gentle art of sleuthing is taught,  in France in a regularly graded school  .with   lessons   and   examinations.     The  School  is   known  as   the  Academy  for  ���the Acquisition of Criminal Lore.    To  be--eligible  to  this  course of  detective  work   one    must  have   had   a  regular  ���school education and in addition to be  .   able   to   speak.   English,   German    and  Spanish, besides, of course, French. The  fees   for   tuition   are   very   high.    The  school  building is an old chateau surrounded  by  private grounds some 900  acres in extent.    Some of the --exercises  which the would-be detectives undergo  are   given   in   a   thick    wood   on    the  grounds.    The students of the institution on entering the academy are first  trained   in  the   use  of  their  eyes  and  ' hands.    One of the lessons consists in  placing a pupil in the middle of a brilliantly  lighted  room   full  of  furniture.  He is left for but a few seconds when  the   room   is   darkened   and   he   is   required   to  sketch  hastily the complete  map of the room,  indicating the position of the furniture.   After this a face  appears for a moment before the lights  sire   turned   off.   The   student   is   then  -.���required  to describe  the  face and  the  ���color of the hair and eyes.   He is afterwards   required   to   recognize  a   photo-  ' graph  of the face among several  hun-  dred others.   The education of the hands  follows.   The pupil is placed in a darkened room full of curious and unusual  objects.    He is required to touch them  rapidly and afterward to recall exactly  ���what he has touched and write a description of them.    He must remember even  the slightest details.    One of the exercises consists in placing a jeweled knife  before him in the dark which he is allowed   to   touch   only   for   a   moment.  Afterwards he must tell by touch what  the   jewels  are���whether   rubies,   diamonds or opals.  his lordship's proceedings in Nevada  liad been approved by high legal authority in the United States.* Evidence in  regard to the degree and domicile in Nevada could only be given in America by  the .witnesses and must be proceeded  with great fullness and care. The attorney general opposed the postponmeiit.  He said judge Corler of Nevada was an  essential witness and he must be back  liomc at the end of August. Therefore,  if the application was' granted possibly  1he prosecution would collapse.-After  consultation he announced that an adjournment was granted to August 6th,  but no' further delay would be permitted.

BLOCK, Nelson  Postponerceat for Kussell.  LONDON,   July   4.���The   petition   of  carf Russell for a postponement of his  trial was presented at a special session  of the house of lords this morning. The  ' petition for postponement was-granted  and  the  hearing adjourned  until ;Aug-  . ust  Gth.  Earl  Russell  and  his  counsel  ; occupied seats in the bar of the house,  .while the countess, formerly Mrs. Somerville,  was  seated   in  the  box  of  the  Black  Rod,   general   sir   Michael   Mid-  dulph.   After   the   opening   ceremonies  of the house of lords, earl Russell himself approached the bar and handed the  petition to a clerk, who read the document. Counsel for Jord Russell, in sup-  -porting tlio application, suggested tliat  to the United States was followed by:  such a disproportionate reprisal (the  imposition of 30 per cent increased  duties on the most important American importations hero) the importers  of American tools and machinery were  disposed to support Russia on the legal  aspects, but some of them examined  the matter and concluded that the Russian sugar regulations amount to practical compulsion to manufacture for export. They still doubted the expediency  of secretary Gage's action, but latterly  they have concluded that if the policy  was mistaken it does not follow that a  backdown is now expedient. They claim  that such a precedent would weaken  American commercial and political prestige. The actual effects of the discriminative duties have not been as disastrous as expected. The decrease in  Asiatic imports is chiefly due to the  abolition of the open port at Vladivostock. Attention is directed to the increasing disinclination of the Russian  authorities to permit tlie importation  of goods which the Russians can produce, no matter what they cost. This  policy, more than the tariff, obstructs  foreign trade.  Lawyers representing the largest  financial interests in America who were  recently here offered to build the Viatka  railroad for $40,000,000 provided a certain proportion of American material  was used. The reply from the finance  minister was that not one pound of  such material could he used. The syndicate then refused to accept the concession.

NEWS  , Mayor York of Slocan and Squire  Bull of the same city are taking a' look  over the metropolis of Kootenay.  A car of tools and supplies for the contractors for tho Nelson postoffico and  custom house was received in this city  yesterday over the Canadian Pacific. ,  "N'fohn Kempling has finished the work  of constructing the vault at the city offices, and has made a good record for  himself as a contractor, both in respect  to the quality of his work and his observance of the provisions of the contract.  A large number of the bridgemen who  have gone on strike on the Kootenay  branches were paid off yesterday. It is  said that a number of them-will seek  employment on the Lardeau branch,  which the C. F. R. is now building in  from Kootenay lake.  Informations will be laid on Saturday against all the owners of dogs who  have not taken out the necessary license, and when these have been disposed of in the police court steps will  then be taken to impound and destroy  all dogs running at large.  The Fourth of July was duly observed by tbe United States citizens  and their Canadian friends last evening. The R. M. II. band was engaged  for tho evening and rendered a very  enjoyable concert programme on Baker  street, whicli was appreciated by a very  large   audience.  The Nelson lacrosse team put in a  good practice last evening in preparation for the game with the Medicine.  Hat boys tomorrow afternoon. In,the  game with Grand Porks the boys from  the territories got away with the Boundary team to the tune of three goals  to two. Tomorrow's game has been  fixed for 3 o'clock.  ������ A license to wed was yesterday issued'  to Thomas Callard Luscombe and Maria  Clement. The groom is over sixty years  of age and a veteran of the Crimean  campaign, and in which he secured a  medal for conspicuous bravery. This will  not be his first matrimonial venture, as-  he is a widower of some months.  Charles Hunt, tho ' tinhorn arrested  on Wednesday evening upon a Charge  of working a sure-thing game, was uj  in the police court yesterday, when he  entered a plea of guilty and was fined  ?23 and costs. Hunt got oil' light, as the  facts in the case were not gone into,  and he escaped with the" ordinary penalty in such cases. He is rather, well  known to the police, having been run  out of the city some two years ago.  P. Chapman will bo in I-I. R. Cameron's oflice this evening from 7 till  !> o'clock for the purpose of issuing  orders for tho delivery-of the prizes won  in connection with the Dominion Day  celebration. Among the prizes yet to  bo distributed are those in connection  with the trades and labor procession,  the first and second prizes for the best  groomed teams, the second .third, fourth  and fifth prizes in the baby show and  the second prize in the trades procession i'.onts.  The statement appearing in tlie Miner  of recent date to the effect that the full  court had given judgment in the appealed case of Mauley vs. Collom is incorrect, as the case has not yet been  decided. This case is a fight for posses-  's iori~6f=ars" tri p-of^jji* o ii n tl-2 05= fee t=w i d e"  lying between the Arlington and Burlington properties iu the Slocan. At the  trial of the action in November last Mr.  justice Walkem gave judgment for the  plaintiff Manley, and from this judgment the defendant appealed.  The vital .statistics for the quarter  ending June 30th, and covering the Nelson, Slccan, and the Trail Creek portion of the Rossland riding, shows 50  births, 43 deaths, and 28 marriages. The  returns show that the registration requirements are being more generally  observed, but nothing like complete  registration has as yet been attained.  The registrations made to date bear this.  out bottel*1 than anything else could,  -there being so far 824 deaths recorded  ������and only 479 births, with 679 marriages,  it is, therefore, apparent that while the  death registrations may be- fairly complete, eonsierable neglect is shown in  the matter of birth .registrations, which  phoulcf exceed the deaths very considerably.  A One-Horse Editor's Opinion.  "Nelson's celebration of Dominion  " Day was a laino effort this year, not-  " withstanding tho big sum raised for  " prizes. Lack of outside advertising,  " faulty train service, and a poor class  " of sports resulted in a small attend-  " ance of visitors. Slocan sent the bulk  " of t'.ie spectators. Nelson businessmen  " and sports should take a tumble to  " themselves aud start In to patronize  " the little shows sometimes given in  " the oiie-horsc towns in the district.  " Nelson has earned the name of hog-  " town."  The above is from the Slocan Drill  and is simply silly rot. The celebration  at Nelson this year, barring horse races,  was an average one. There were more  athletic events, and better records made  than at any former celebration. There  were no horse races, because there was  no course on which horses iioijld be  raced satisfactorily. This was'not the  fauit of anyone connected with the celebration. The water carnival and trades  procession did not appear to as good  -idvantage as when these features were  first introduced. Such things do not  bear repetition. There were good exhi  bitions of base ball, lacrosse, and football. Caledonian games were never so  varied or so well contested. The footraces were the best and cleanest ever  seen in the town. No such a display of  street electric lighting hasO ever been  witnessed in the province. Taken as a  whole, the people who subscribed the  cost of the celebration are satisfied, and  it ill becomes newspaper scribblers to  malign the people of a town that have  always been foremost in helping their  neighbors in every way tnat aiiows u  neighborly disposition. Moro people have  left Nelson in the last five years to attend celebrations in neighboring towns  than went from all the towns in West  Kootenay put together.

TO QUIET AN UGLY RUMOR  Body Exhumed in Rossland.  ROSSLAND, July 4.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���W./'H..'Bullock-Webster of  the provincial police department at'Nelson, is. in this city foi; the purpose of  exhuming . the ��� body of the late Mrs.-.  Robert Angus, who died here :in No-  venmber last! Following; the death of  Mrs. Angus came, also the death of her;  sbn,���and later the illness of her nurse,  a Mrs. Sullivan;- The nurse ..went to Spokane, for treatment, where it is said she  was suffering-from the, effects of arsenical poisoning:'''The tongue'. of 'slander  soon cohnected'the death of Mrs. Angus  with the reported poisoning, of the  nurse, and ih consequence the bereaved  husband and father was subjected to a  very unpleasant:' suspicion. This went  so far as to cause an investigation tp be  started, by the -attorney-general's department some months ago, but not the  slightest'" evidence was brought out  against the husband.   ���.  Whether the iriurse was suffering from  arsenical poisoning or not is not known  definitely, but in any event there was  no evidence to connect Angus with the  poisoning, which in the.opinion of.the  crown may have been induced by, the  consumption of canned meats and vegetables. Despite the finding; of the crown's  investigator and the certificate of the  attending physician,' Dr.'Coulthard, that  Mrs. Angus' death . was. due to acute  neprith'is, the rumors of foul play continued to be heard; and it is now thought  that the crown is taking steps to settle  the question beyond.. all doubt as to  whether Mrs. Angus was poisoned or  not. it is understood that the. body  is to be exhumed and the stomach sent  to Victoria for analysis.   . .  IsnELSOIN"  STORES   AT  KASLO  S_A.^TIDOIsr     V  ful arc lights make the beach as bright,  as day. The lines of light extend  around and form the life lines. The  outer line, beyond which it is not safe  to venture, is guarded by a force of  life guards, all strong swimmers and  familiar'with the methods of preventing  drowning accidents. Emil Mayer, once  the amateur champion sea swimmer, has  also introduced a novelty in the way  of rescue of persons,who venture beyond the life lines. He has trained  several Newfoundland dogs to go after  any person pointed out. When a man  or woman who -persists in going beyond the life lines is warned and docs  not pay heed Mayer calls one of his  dogs and says: ''Go get him, Jack."  And Jack immediately goes. He swims  out to the person .and .circles about,  every now-and then making a gentle  snap at the bather. In the meantime  the life guard has rowed out to. the  spot, and if the bather refuses to take  the action of the dog in good part he  is dragged into the boat and taken  within the lines. Almost every night  there are crowds in the water until 11  o'clock.     ������.-"���  Strikers in Camp.  Five hundred iron workers who went  on strike in the shops of the Reading  Iron Company at'Reading, Pennsylvania, have been living in.'a. camp at Fritz  Island, Iona Park, . hear Reading, for  nearly two months.
