J'.l  *  '.vr  "-.;  ��� vAl  ESTABLISHED  1892  WEDNESDAY MORNING,  OCTOBER 2,  1901  DAILY EDITION  li WAS THE RESULT OF THE  YACHTo RACE.  7' SHAMROCK HAD THE BETTER OF  '*        '   COLUMBIA AT   END   OF  FIRST LEG.  NEW YORK, October 1.���Today's attempt to race the' second of the series  of international yacht races for the blue  ribbon of the sea proved a dismal failure. Between 25,000 and 30,000 people,  crowded the pleasure fleet off Sandy  Hook lightship in the hope of seeing a  repetition of the thrilling sport of last  Saturday, but instead witnessed more  of a drifting match than a race. The  wind, was exceedingly light and varying, falling so low that the wind pen-  *uants, which are as light as thistle  down, hung limp against-the masts of  the big .single stickers; the wind, with  crews lined up on the lee rails, was  not sufficient at any time to make a racing machine heel to its lines. At Lhe end  of four and a half hours the two yachts  had covered less than one-half of the  prescribed .course of' 30 miles, and as  theie was no possible chance of finishing within the time limit, the regatta  committee declared the race oil*. When  the gun was fired announcing this decision, tlie challenger was about half a  mile ahead of the defender, and to that  extent today's trial was a victory for  Shamrock II., but the fluke today demonstrated little as to the question of sups, emacy between the two boats, except, perhaps, that sir Thomas's challen-'  ger is more dangerous in light airs than  was'supposed1 after her two former meetings w_th the white flyer, to which the  -pati iots 'are pinning their faith. ,  In fluky winds, shifting as they did  today through six points of the compass, luck cuts almost as,much .figure  as model and seamanship,* and today  fortune was unmistakably with the foreigner. The course was'an'equilateral  triangle, ten-miles, to ihe leg.'The Yankee skipper at the0 start out-generalled  Ms adveisary . by a, splendid, piece ot  jockeying, crossing thclme in the windward.. berth_1J.2   seconds>ahead   of-the  ��� Englishman. * This -advantage" 'Columbia  held for two" hours while both yachts  .steered far off their course to the south-  waid'looking for a-sti sale of wind that  would profit them'. Finally Ban* declined  longer to continue the vain search. He  ���put the helm down and headed in shore  on the starboard tack- Shamrock at this  time, after both had been sailing in the  same airs, was a beaten boat, and her  captain could afford to take a gambler's  chance with fortune. He held doggedly  on and fortune smiled upon him. Within  five minutes he got a breeze out of the  soutnwest wmch rumed the crestiess  seas and wafted him like' a ghost  through the air. But this was not his  "best good piece of fortune. After a this  reverse, Columbia slipping through7 the  ���seas at an astonishing pace, considering the lightness orf the breeze, had  ���wo'-ked out ahead of Shamrock but to  -'leeward���When-the-two-yachts-were-in  -this position, about two miles from the  first turn, the wind threatened to blanket Columbia and to avoid such a possibility Barr went under Shamrock's  stern. Just as ho did so, the wind hauled  round to the south knocking Columbia's  head off until the astonished spectators  saw she was headed almost back for  the lightship at the starting line. The  golden boat favored by the same breeze,  was headed in exactly the opposite direction. When the wind) backed up  again and Barr got Columbia straightened out, he was a third of a mile astern-  ln this position tho two boats rounded  the first mark Shamrock three minutes  and eight seconds before Columbia, or  adding the 12 seconds which Columbia  beat her over the line, of 3 minutes and  .20 seconds.  .During the next hour, in a close reach  for the second mark, the yachts were  able to cover four or four and a half  miles of the remaining 20, and as-ihly  B0 minutes then remained before the  expiration of the time limit, the ___���>���  was declared off.  After turning the' mark the experts  ; thought  Shamrock  increased  her  lead  ' slightly. This gain may, however, be ac-  ' counted for, by the fact that she carried  a large reaching jib topsail while Columbia was working close to the wind  with a small baby topsail, a mere hand-  ' kerchief, compared to Shamrock's larger  sail. When the excursion fleet headed  back for home the only real race of the  day occurred. It was the race for .New  York'. Tonight both the Yankees ��� and  the Englishmen are praying for a good  ���stiff -wind on Thursday, when the day's  xace will be repeated.  NEW YORK, October 30.��� Always  optimistic, sir Thomas Lipton, after the  race today, was in. the best of spirits. "I  really don't see anything yet,on which!  to base any definite opinion regarding;  the two boats, while Shamrock was,  leading when the -race '-was-'called,-.off,'  there's nothing to brag about. Today  while the winds were very light, t'h��re  ���was little fluking, therein differing from  last Thursday's breezes, -which in spots  failed utterly, each boat in turn strife-���  ing'dead calm. After the showing made  thus far by "both boats,'I should not-hesitate if 1 were a-betting man to lay even  money on Shamrock. Both boats were  yhandled today to the best ability of the  |*ea_ men _eac_i coxmbcy. cqjuWI jaroduce.",  Sir Thomas expressed himself as personally in favor of racing every day,  providing any suggestion looking to  that ond should be made. Caotain  Wri_r.it who stands by sir Thomas on  the bridge, when asked If he could read  Shamrock's chances better, replied: "I  can't say her chances are better, for  they were never bad." When the string  of signals was hoisted on the committee  boat indicating the course, the rival  racers were coming about the lightship.  The preparatory gun was fired at 10:45.  At that time both yachts were on the  port standing to the southward, with  Shamrock1 in the lead and Columbia following in her wake. Ten minutes later  came the bang of a warning gun, and  Columbia veering sharply around trimmed her sails on the east tack  Shamrock (crossing her bowr Columbia  took good care to secure the weather  berth, and ten seconds after the starting gun, which was fired at the dot of  11, she crossed the line on the starboard  tack ahead and to windward of Shamrock. Shamrock luffed over the line a  few seconds before the gun fired and  was recalled' by the judges boat and  had to put back. Luck was with the  American boat at the urst, for a fortunate catspaw struck her and enabled her  to head up a couple of points higher  than her opponient. This gave her a  commanding lead. Shamrock, meanwhile scarcely moving through the  water and appearing to be dull and  loggy. ���Shamrock went on the port tack  15 minutes after the start, Columbia  following immediately. Once again the  American" boat showed'her superiority  in stays, coming about much quicker  than her rival, and gathering way as  soon as her head sheets were trimmed  down. * ���*  At 11:30 both yachts were rtretty  nearly becalmed, Columbia showing a  lead of about a auarter of a mile. At  11:35 Shamrock went on the starboard  tack. Columbia following, and then a  lucky streak filled Shamrock's sails and  gave her an appreciable lift. At noon  both "yachts were on the port tack almost becalmed. Then the unexpected  happened. Wafted along at a fine clip  by a stray puff, Shamrock overhauled  Columbia, and at 12:15 she was sb close  that captain Barr bore down on her in  order to kill her wind, as he had so often killed the wind of the Constitution.  Shamrock went on the port tack, immediately followed-by the Columbia, and  in another" minute the Britisher was  ahead and to windward. The wind now  became more southerly. Both yachts  set reaching jib top'sails and eased, off  sheets, steering a direct course for the  mark. . Then Shamrock forged ahead  and got -into the doldrums, while Col-',  umbia got a slant of. wind, and at 1:55  passed*Shamrock. "Thenrit came Sham-'  'rock's turn'to get the benefit ,of a  breeze, and she came along and planted  herself.in Columbia's-weather "quaiter,  crowding up on her. At 2:08 they were  neck and neck, with the Britisher to  windward blanketing her opponent. To  escape from this blanket, captain Barr  sent Columbia on'the port tack at 2:12,  but luck was against her. and she lost  every breath of wind as well as steerage way, and it was fully two minutes  before she got away on the starboard  tack again, and by that time Shamrock  was too far ahead to be overtaken. The  first mark was then close at hand, and  the yachts tacked around it as follows:  Shamrock   2:41:36  Columbia 2:44:44  Shamrock had beaten the defender 3  minutes and 20 seconds in the first ten  miles, and try as Columbia would she  was unable to close the wide gap that  separated her frcm her antagonist. She  held her luff hunting for wind, but failing to find it dropped slowly astern un-  -til-the-gun-from���the���committee���boat-  brought the contest to an end, with  nearly half a mile of blue water between  her and the golden boat of Lipton.  THE DUKE MADE A NEAT  Reply to Addresses.  VICTORIA, October 1.���Victoria, as  befitted the capital of the western province, accorded a most hearty welcome to  tho duke and duchess of Cornwall and  York. The Empress of India with the  royal party arrived off the, harbor  shortly after 9 o'clock, accompanied by  H.M. ships Condor and Phaeton, the.torpedo boat destroyer Sparrow Hawk, and  D. G. ship Quadra. They wore met by  admiral Bickford's flagship, the, War-;  spite, and the cruiser Amphion, which  belched forth a royal salute which was -  taken up by the land batteries.  It was 11 o'clock before the royal  party landed, when they were met by.  sir Henri Joli, lieutenant-governor, and  his ministers and other, notables. From  the:wharf they were driven to the-parliament buildings through streets gaily  decorated; and Uined y.ith cheering  crowds. At the buildings an immense  crowd had assembled. ��� Here the civic  address and addresses from the Presbytery of Victoria and the. American-British citizens of-the state of Washington  .yere, presented. ,. :Ih'Y reply to the ad-:  dresses the duke said:   '.,   ..-������'���.������:  "Gentlejnen:..

By the devotion, to. duty, her love and sympathy  With her fellow-creatures, she has earned the undyinjg gratitude and .admiration of file whole empire. I shall have  much pleasure in informing my dear  father, the king, pf what especial satisfaction I have noticed your strong dec--  laratipn of loyally to thp constitution  and pride in the heritage of British citizenship, and your unfaltering resolu  tion to share in the responsibilities of  upholding the glory and integrity of  that heritage. I know what proof of this  you have already given in the blood of  your sons which was shed on the South  African veldt. I am confident that the  sacrifices you have made will not be in  vain. They have forged another link in  the golden chain which binds together  the brotherhood of the empire. It gives  us the utmost pleasure in visiting this,  the capital of your great provinces Our  only regret is that time, does not permit  us to see more of its wonderful natural  resources, its picturesque scenery, and  to have further experience of its bauti-  ful climate.    Our earnest wish is that  * under divine blessing the people of British Columbia may continue to advance  in prosperity and in;all that, tends to  ennoble and brighten life."  After a drive through the city, which  had been beautifully decorated, the  party proceeded to Esquimau, where  they lunched with admiral Bickford on  the Warspite. The little naval village  had been prettily decorated, and as the  duke went out in the launch the ships  again fired a royal salute. The departments at the naval headquarters were  inspected and the party then proceeded  'to the Agricultural Hall and formally,  opened the annual-exhibition.  At 7:30 the official dinner took r��l?ce  at Government House and later the public reception at the parliament buildings.- In the evening the city was illuminated-- and the ships *' threw their  searchlights over the town. Tomorrow  the royal party will rest, only visiting  the" hospitals and charitable institutions.  Major Maude says the party will not  visit the New Westminster exhibition.  Strikes in Pennsylvania.  SCRANTON, Pennsylvania, October  1.���A, strike of tho employees of the  Scranton Railroad Company, covering  the entire Lackawanna valley from  Pittston to Forest City, began this  morning.

CITY OF NELSON LIKELY* TO PAY  BOTH THE ACTORS AND  SPECTATORS.  J The somewhat celebrated case of Hall  vs. LaBau" occupied the greater' portion-  .of' yesterday's session of the county  court, and late in the afternoon an adjournment was secured by the counsel,  ���for the plaintiff upon the ground-* that'  he had been taken by surprise by the attempt of the defendant's counsel'to put  in the health regulations of the province  asYa part of His defense. S. S. Taylor,  who appeared for tie plaintiff wanted  costs of the adjournment also, but the'  judge would not yield this much and  -the case will go "on again this morning.  It is doubtful if any other action in  the .county court for several years has  aroused the interest, which this one  has. Jlt was sufficient to keep the', hot,  stuffy court room, crowded��to the. doors  throughout the, entire session, and for  the most part'by people who are.seldom  seen in court except when theie 'in  connection with' jury, or witness duty.  Interest in the case was not confined to  the^men of the, city, as there were also  a number of ladies, who throughout the  earlier portion of the hearing occupied  places of vantage on, the court room  "steps, but later in the' day seats ,were  provided for -them in the court. room(  and they sat thiough the entire hearing., As the1 case J, hinges very largely  upon the'disinfectant'used in the fumi-i  gation ofthe oflice of "the plaintiff, ','the'  witnesses, were ^ to an unusual' extent  drawn* from ttiei medical practitioners  of the city and surrounding points..  Among; the medical, men present were'  doctors'LaBau, Hall, Rose, Arthur, McLennan, Rheinhart,. Doherty, Hawkey,  Reddick, and Sinclair. The city was also  interested. 'P. E., Wilson, city solicitor,  was assisting W., A. ^Macdonald in the  -defense,, while mayor'.Fletcher and.'al-  .derman Selous-.w;ere among the specta-  'tors.' ~ , *~ ���  '���> *   ��� - -.'<-        i    - '  The conflict in the case" commenced  with the selection cf the jurors, each  side exhausting its right to challenge.  As finally selected 'the jury was made  up of the following: Duncan McFarland  (foreman), F. M. Chadburne, George W.  Hale, H. H. Avery, and John Blaney.  For the plaintiff Eli Sutcliffe and Fred  J. Squire were asked to stand aside, and  for the defense William Waldie and L.  Pogue were similarly treated.  The hearing of the case for the plaintiff occupied the greater part of the day  and brought some lively scraps between  the counsel and the judge. At one stage  in the proceedings an open rupture was  narrowly averted. It cropped up while  Dr. McLennan was being cross-examined by W. A. Macdonald. One of the  contentions of the plaintiff was that  the damage done to the furnishings  and instruments in the office was the  result of too much moisture with the  _sulphur_in���fumigating���Mr.- Macdonald  was cross-examining the witness upon  moisture, when judge Forin asked the  defendant's counsel whether he denied  the presence of moisture in connection  with the fumigation of the plaintiff's  office. To this Mr.' Macdonald replied  that in view of the advantage which  was being taken by the plaintiff's solicitor to the answers which he had already given to the court he would decline to answer. The court replied that  ho would be obliged to answer or he  would dismiss the action with costs.  As this was the end desired above all  by the defendant's solicitor,.heYwas-not  at all dismayed by the consequences  threatened as the result of the refusal.  The effect of the action occurred to the  court, however, and lie modified his announced purpose by saying-that in such  an event he would enlarge the action  with costs against the defendant. Mr.  Macdonald replied that the defense, so  far as he intended to; disclose it, was  contained in the pleadings, as to whether  or not moisture was used / in the fumigating he refused to nay.  ..- The court then framed a written question which was delivered to the defendant's counsel as to whethere.moisture  was used or not- In reply. Mr. Macdonald  stated that so far as the question applied to the tubs used^he was; prepared  to say there was water in them.. This  appeared' satisfactory and the case proceeded. ,y.* '���'������;.:  From the, evidence submitted by the  plaintiff it was evident that the attempt  was made to prove that the damage re-  ��� suiting to the office was..the.:result of  too much moisture in connection with  thei sulphur, the resultant combination  of the water and sulphurybeing a sulphurous acid gas, which bleached the  carpet on the floor, destroyed the fibre  in the curtains, and corroded the surgical instruments. As against the use of  sulphur in such cases it was claimed that  a disinfectant known as formalin should  have been used. So ft^r as thp evidence  submitted went, it appeared to establish the fact that in the use of sulphur  the fumes were'inert as a disinfectant  until their combination with moisture  produced the sulphurous gas, which it  was further claimed did the damage in  question. There'was very little difference  of opinion brought out'in the cross-  examination of the plaintiff's witnesses  either upon this point or as to the effi  cacy of formalin as a disinfectant, with  the exception of the evidence of Dr.  Rheinhart. The,doctor was called for the  plaintiff, but he was not on���.the stand  very long until it was manifest that  something was wrong. He started out  by saying that when the matter of the  fumigation of the offices in question  first came up he was strongly of the  'opinion that formalin was the proper  disinfectant, bdt as the result of sub-i  sequent reading and research he had  changed his mind and now stood for  sulphur. He agreed that -formalin was  not injurious, but questioned its efficacy on the ground that it had not sufficient penetrative powers. In the light  of his later information he held that in  order .to fumigate thee ollice thoroughly  it -would be necessary to use sulphur.  As a witness he also disagreed with the  other medical men who had been called  to testify as to the damage done to the  surgical instruments by tlje sulphurous  gas. - He admitted that the*'instruments  were damaged from a selling point of  view, but said that for all .practical  purposes 'they were as good as ever.  The other medical men called, for the  plaintiff all agreed that the damage done  ^to the instruments. was equal ;to fully  _one-half 'of their original'value." ,1* .  - The evidence of Dr. Rose was the most  important adduced as io the comparative merits of formalin and sulphur, as  a disinfectant. The doctor testified that  while he was medical'superintendent of,  the hospital connected with McGill iini-'  versity, he had in conjunction with the  superintendent of one ofthe civic-hospitals, made a number of tests to arrive  at the merits of sulphur, and--formalin  as. disinfectants and* the ,*.experiments  made were all in favor, of formalin. Dr.  tRose stated that he was 'theN flrst mem-,  sber of the firm to enter, the offices after  *they had befen disinfected by,3the man  in, charge for the health officer, and he  stated that in his opinion the steam radiators had been left turned on while the  .disinfecting was going"on.-,This would  .account in his opinion'for the excess of  'moisture which had done the damage,  as-the articles nearest.to the radiators  were the most discolered.; --*--' ���  ,'The, evidence of Dr.'Hall was chiefly  as to" the damage done and 'testimony  tov'the effect that prior . to'> the, fumigation he had made a request or an in-  'timation to the effect that'*formalin  would be the better disinfectant to use.  ,He.was submitted to a rigid examination  ^asjrto'the amount of damage claimed,  and upon some of the items admitted  -that1.the damages set out,might be re-  .garded^as excessive. The' strongest evl-  'dence 'upon .this' point -was' submitted  by doctors Arthur, and McLennan, who  had made the appraisement. They would  not yield an inch. Dr. LaBau was the  flrst 'witness called 'for the defense. He  was 'just1 -getting -"nicely' 'startecf"whetf  the trouble cropped up in. connection  with'the1-putting in or the''regulations  of the provincial board of health respecting smallpox^ The plaintiff's counsel pleaded that" he had been taken by  surprise/ and the case went over until  the morning as indicated above.

ROSSLAND, October 1.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���Director Frecheville has  addressed a lengthy letter to the Rossland Miners' Union setting out the position taken by the Le Roi directors on  the strike situation, and giving reasons  for the refusal to grant the demands of  the men until the mines have repaid  the stockholders. The union replied today with a long letter going into the  matters raised in Frecheville's communication, and asking leave to point out  several misstatements of facts in the  London man's letter. Both letters appear  In the papers today, and for the flrst  time, since the trouble commenced an  appeal to reason and arbitration has  been made. It is possible that no extended conference between Mr. Frecheville and the union executive will be  held, but the tone of both the letters  which appeared today Is distinctly upon  the lines of a possible settlement.   *  E. H. Lewis, who was charged with  having stolen a package of money from  the Trail postoffice, was acquitted with  honor by police magistrate Boultbee  this evening. No evidence was produced  against him. The crowd in the court  room cheered when , the decision was  given.      -���-        .'������"       .  How the Mighty Has Fallen.

If the interview given the Rossland  Miner is authentic, director Frecheville  of the Le Roi Mining Company has not  lost much time in making up his mind  regarding one of the questions he was  supposed to investigate. _ He had beeu  in Rossland less than two days when he  declared his hostility to the miners'  union. This, to the fair-minded, would  indicate/that director -Frecheville did  not come to investigate that phase of  the trouble at Rossland. His statement  that the employees of the company had  got more out of the mine' than the  shareholders is not one that a disinterested, fair-minded a man ' would make.  Instead. It is just such a'statement as  might be erpected'from aShylock.   Di-  "rector Frecheville has made it' clear to  the miners' union at Rossland that they  ' need not expect anything -from him  other than a continuation of the war  that has been waged -^against tthem  by  \Bernard McDonald."

Bogle, well-known in Kootenay as an able writer, is now and has  been for some time editing the Victoria  Post, a weekly publication that was  started to boost the political fortunes  of the millionaire sawmill owner that J  The Hall-Rose damage suit against  the City of Nelson, which arose out of  the fumigation" of their office during the  small-pox scare last spring, is simply  a farce-comedy. It is merely one of the  acts in the comedy that was placed on  the boards in Nelson in the early davs  when thjere were but two medical practitioners in the town. Since then' the:  players have increased in numbers, but  the comedy has' not changed in the  slightest. Politics may divide a town;  into factions, but professional jealousies  are worse than politics, and Nelson has  got the disease bad. The danger is,  the' disease that has become chronic  with the medical practitioners may be  catching, an'djf it catches the judiciary,  what will become of the ordinary everyday people who are not of the learned  professions? Nelson has had a number  of farce-comedies in its days; but the  one now on at the court house is the  silliest ever on the boards.  years was that handed down a couple"  of months ago by the house of lords in  the case of the Taff Vale Railway Company against the Amalgamated Society  of Railway Servants.   As was to be expected the decision occupied no small  share of the  attention   of  the  British  Trades Union Congress which lately met  at ' Swansea.   The "Taff  Vale * Railway  -Company, it will be remembered, originally, mado application for an injunction to restrain the association of railway employees   from   taking   steps to  prevent the employment of men in place  of those" on strike.   On behalf.of the association "it was contended in reply that  that'-.body' could' not ' be   proceeded  against/ not* being a person, a firm, or a  corporation" rendered capable by act of  parliament of being sued.    There  was  some conflict of judicial   opinion  over  the case,-s'but' it was finally set at rest  by the house of lords, which, speaking  through -the lord chancellor, Held that  -parliament, ��� having   created   a   thing  which-1 can own property, employ   ser-  -vp.nts,' and inflict injury/must be taken  , to have. Impliedly made it capable of be-  ' ing sued in the courts of law.   A trades  union was thus'declared a suable body  under, the   English   law,   and a body  against which and against the officers of  which i an injunction ** might   be issued.  The discussion of the TafffVale decision overshadowed all other business at  the Swansea congress,   a special report  upon it by the advising council of the  ��� parliamentary committee declared that  the trades unions -had been   put-in a  very serious position.    The seriousness  of the decision, they said, .lay in the position    of   the   courts -in   relation-to  picketing.   Under the,decision it would  be'exceedingly  difficult   to   conduct   a  strike with any degree of success'Without doing illegal acts.   The consequence  of those acts, if done by persons who  .from their position might fairly be ta-  ;ken to represent a .trades union, would  be to render the funds,'ui that body lia-  able' for the damage occasioned by such  -illegal Tacts._After.t_*,reshin'g-the.matter-  out at great length,, the congress decided to carry before the house of. lords  .the flrst case in which an injunction is  sought to restrain persons from picketing during a strike.   The object in taking the test case is to ascertain how far  picketing may be 'carried .without infringing   the   law   and   rendering   the  funds.of the trades  union  liable  for  damages.   There is no idea bf fighting  the piinciple of the decision, whicli appears to have been accepted by the congress as incontestible.   It will be interesting to watch for the result of the  test case, and to see whether it will  .have the effect of widening or 'of narrowing the application of the Taff Vale  decision   to   the   general   practice   of  stationing pickets during a strike.  =\  V/hen you .purchase  with this label attached to the left.hand pocket  -i,,..        ,", - . - ���     - ,i   '-  *- '  <of the coat, rest -assured you are getting Garments, Tailor. niadc, ready, to wear,, unequalled  in '.the Dominion, of Canada for  500 Wi WiSTH  On the construction of the Arrowhead '  Kootenay^ railway in the Lardo district.

A Homeless couple living in a Family Hotel had an only Child. His mother  had him christened Claude. Not because  she had a Grudge against him, but because she had been reading these stories  to be Continued in our Next. If she had  given him a Middle name, he might have  called himself C H. oi something like  that. But she did not give him a show  _to tb.ro.v_.off the Hoodoo. He was Claude  for all time and the worst you could say  about him he tried to live up to the  Ns?ie.  When the Boy with the Handicap was  one year old his Mother began'to curl  y his hair on a Poker and then Exhibit  k  f him about the Hotel. He would be passed  K   around aiid Bitten a.tu Tickled on the  ft'  V  1  I.  I.  feet and Churned, and everyone said  he was a beautiful Child. The a other  People living at the Hotel used to como  up and borrow him to play with.  All the bleary old Gentlemen and the  stuffy old Ladies who ate peppermint  took turn about in dawdling and dancing little Claude and, blowing in nis  Ears find rubbing Noses with him. Tf  the Manikin had Sense enough to formulate Impressions in that Early and  unspoiled Period, he must have concluded that he had got into a bummy  old Woild.*-  When   Honey  was' a. little  older  he  langed through the Hotol. The Men gave  i   lum,Money and bought candy for-him  ��� and taught him to be Sassy. The Women  ���   told him he was an ipsy-dipsy Angel. A  Boy can learn more, in a Hotel than he  , can in a Kindergarten. At the age of 4  Claude tolerated his Parents  Ho had to  be  Bribed   to 'get   into   the   Bath-Tub.  When his father would get out of Patience and go after him witlra Red Slipper, then Mother would rush in and do  the   Pocahontas   Specialty.. She - would  ,, say "Noumdeed, bad old Popper shan't  ' walloD Mommer's little Skidjums."  ��  ,*__> �����*Claude   learned   that-lie  could' work  |<\     Mamma, so he became so flnnicky as a  Dramatic Star. If the toast was brown  on one side he wanted it done on both  sides, and then when it was sent back  and fl\od up for him, he would let out  a Wail because ��� the "Waiter   had   not  b; blight him a Plate with a Picture on  it.  Tho help* had to bo pleasant while  Mamma had her Eagle Eye on them,  but they often thought what a good  Scheme it would be to luig Claude into  the Kitchen and Fricassee him.  Mamma would come to Breakfast  wearing all her Diamonds, and she  would expect the entne staff of employees to drop every thing else and  run to wait on Claude. So Claude got  it into his Head that the entire Population of this Mundane Sphere was put  hero "for the Express purpose of humor-  ing him and giving hiai Nickels and tcll-  ing him he was a Pretty Boy. His  Mother and her friends would dncus-*  his Beauty so that he could overhear it.  Claude became Self-Conscious and had  the Swell Head and began to look ask-  r.uco at those who did not smell of Perfumery. And for fear that he would Un-  BBAL ESTATE  AND  MSflfiANCE BROKERS  derestimate his Importance,~his Mamma  would tell him several times" a day that  he was too good to play with the Brats.  She dressed him as much like a sirl  as possible and had him wearing Curls  and a stiff Skirt when he ought to have  been out playing First Base.  The very Idea of permitting the Jewel  to mingle with the Lower Classes in  the Public Schools gave her the Cholly-  Wobbles. Claude grew up as a spintuelle  Hot-House Flower, with a Wide Blue  Sash and his Nose in the Air. He would  sit m the Hotel office and bite his finger  nails and feel weary of Adulation. Sometimes the other kids would see him at  the Window and beg him to come out.  just for a little while and they wouldn't  do a thing to him.  Once or twice the Male Parent wondered what they would make out of the  Boy, but Mamma shuddered at the suggestion of Claude being put to Work.  Some of the Worldly Boarders around  the Hotel suggested that he become a  Cloak Model. Claude had no.Plans'of his  Own. He knew that he was the handsomest and dearest Thing that ever grewi  up in a Family Hotel and therefore he  would be coddled and indulged for all  time.  " Finally he became so long-legged that  they had to pull him out of Knickerbockers and cut off his Curls, or else  People  would   have  thrown  Things at  him. When he gave up being a Pretty  Boy and tiied to be a Young,Man, he  .was a downright-case .of Polish. He was  ab'out  so  many  Pounds  bf  Veal.   The  same Young Ladies who had used* him  as a .Plaything told him "Scatt!" when  he came around and wanted to resume  the Occupation of Holding .Hands.  ,   ,  When   he   began   to   attend   Dancing  Pai ties  he  discovered  that the* husky  Youth with  the  big Knuckles and  he  Golf Face was the Main Torch, and m  grown-up   Society   a   Fellow'-��� couldn't  travel very far on his Complexion. The  Young Men did not know that he was a  Delicate Organism brought up in a Glass  Case, so they called him Jessie, the Sewing Girl, and walked over him' roughshod   When he called them Mean. Old  Things they threatened to. give "him a  Slap on the Wrists.        "   *    ^ -     '     '  All he could do was to fly to Mamma  and pour out his Griefs. For ten years  Mamma always had something to talk  about, and that was, how Claude was  bei__; Abused >   *  But no matter how often they threw  him down ana then piled things on ton  of him, Claude couldn't free himself of  tho Belief that'he was a" Pretty Boy and  that all the others ought to tell him  so and let him have his own way.  Even when he was thirty and had a  b?d set of Whiskers and no Shape to  speak of, ho wanted all the Women to  rush to him when he entered a Room,  lie wanted to sit in somebody's lap and  have Her to tell him that he was too  Sweet for any use. Then, when they elbowed him back into a corner and tried  to forget thai, he was present, he would  become peevish and say "Oh, Fiddle!"  But he was still Claude to his Mamma.  What his Father called him it would be  impossible to tell, as the Postal Reg-  -ulations-do-not-permit-such-Matter-to-  go through the Mails  MORAL: It is all light to be Pretty,  but don't find it out.

Vancouver  Of all God's cattle roaming at large  on the face of the earth, the backcapper is the worst  He wages war against  tho community in wliich he lives and  perioims  tno  dog  in  tne manger act  whenever the opportunity presents itself.  He is found, more or less, in all vocations, but the field in which he delights to revel���in which he can kick  his heels the highest and snort the loudest���is  the  mining industry.  Here his  diversified talents for slander and mis-  repiesentation   find   room   for   ample  scope. '��� Knowing that  capital  is timid,  especially   seeking   investments   on   a  large scale  as  is  usually  the case  In  mining deals, the backcapper recognizes  his golden opportunity to gloat. He oils  up his hoodoo, sees that every part of  its delicate machinery is in perfect order,  and then gets a focus on the would-be  purcheaser. Usually he Drings down his  game, and with a large invoice of satisfaction   in   stock   hunts   for   another  victim    His   most   flattering   triumphs  are registered when the sale of a mining  pioperty   is   almost   consummated,  and when its reputation is as sensitive  to slander as the good name of a pure  woman. It is then that he approaches the  bu>er with the statement that he hopes  the seller will do well by letting go of  the property for he could do nothing  with it himself, on account of reasons  known only to those on the inside. With  language of this type, covert insinuations  thp-t Jnay mean little or mucli.'he frighten^ .capital into indefinite delay and  finally perhaps succeeds in preventing  the deal. Thus ft loss inflicted upon.the  seller who lacks th.e money to work the  property���upon the:-buyer," who misses-  the opportunity of a lifetime to quadruple his wealth, and upon the community that loses the industrial value of 'a  producing mine. The backqapper is actuated by one of two motives���the hope  that he can deflect capital .from its  avowjeil  purpose   into   channels  more  "The narrative states that there was  a Buddhist priest named Hui Shen,  originally a native of Cabul, who, in the  year 499 A. D., during the reign of the  emperor Yung Yuan, came from the  country of Fusang to 'Kmgchow, the  capital of the dynasty of Tsi, 'situated  on the river Yang-tse The country being in a state of revolution, it was-not  till the year 502 that ho nad an opportu;  nity of going to the court of. the emperor Wu Ti, of the new Liang dynasty.  He gave presents to the emperor of curious articles brought from Fusang*  among which was a material looking  . like silk, but the threads of which could  support a great weight without breaking.���This-was evidently_the fiber-of-the-  Mexican agave. He also presented 5 a  mirror a foot in diameter,, possessing  wonderful properties, and resembling  those in use in Mexico" and other local^  ities in America at that time. The em-;  peror treated him as an envoy from  Fusang, and deputed one of the four  four principal feudal lords, named Yu  Kie, to interrogate him regarding the'  country, and to take down his story in  writing. This was accordingly done,  and we have what is undoubtedly the  original text, with only perhaps here  and there a typographical error which'  can be easily explained. . ,  ���'Among other things, Hui Shen said  that the people of Fusang were formerly   in   ignorance   of   the   doctrines   of  Buddha, but during thereign of the Chinese emperor Ta Ming of the Sung dy-t  nasty, or A. D. 548, there were five bik-  shus,   or   Buddist  monks  from   Cabul,  who traveled there and promulgated the  knowledge of the doctrines, books and  images of Buddhism. Their labors werej  successful, so they;ordained monks fronjv  among the natives, and thus the customs and manners of the people were  soon reformed. He gave particulars of,  the  journey  through  the Aleutian Islands 'and Alaska,  with the length/of  the route and a description of the "inhabitants. He described the country oft  Fusang as 20,000 11, or 6500 miles, to the  east of Kamschatka, and also due east  from China   It'grows great numbers of|  fusang trees, which, when they first ap-'  pear   above   ground,   are   like   bamboo  shoots, and the people eat them. Threads  are spun from the skin of the plant,  which are woven into cloth from which  clothing is made, or. else it is made into  embroidery   They also use the fibrous  material of the fusang for making paper. These and many other features seem  to point to the Mexican agave. Red pears  are mentioned which agree in description  with the fruit of the prickly pear, while  grapes   are   represented   as   plentiful.

CITY AND DISTRICT,  The Lawrence Hardware Company yesterday made a 2-ton shipment of drill  steel to a mining company operating at  Alberni, on the.west coast of "Vancouver  Island.  M. Scully leaves for the coast cities  for a two-weeks recreation trip. He  will be too late to see the royalties, but  there are always attractions in Vancouver Victoria, and Seattle.  The Nelson-Poorman-mine wagon  wagon road is said to be a good piece  of work; but teamsters who have been  over it say there should be a few turnouts made, so as to give teams a chance  to pass easily.  E E. Phair yesterday put in his new  mahogany bar and fixtures. The bar is  handsomely carved and the back-bar is  fitted up with the best of mirrors and  set off to advantage with tasty electric  light fixtuies. It is easily the handsomest bar m the city.  217 and 219  "Baker Street  J. A. GII.KER  iff '*  Harry Wright, registrar of birth,  deaths and marriages, has completed his  report for the quarter ending September  30th. The figures show. 27 births, 26  deaths, and 23 marriages, and it is safe  to say that not more than one-half of  the births are registered.  David McBeath is back from East  .Kootenay. He has taken 40 stations on  the Crow's Nest Southern at a point  about 3y2 miles east of Elko. The work  is loose rock and rock. "Dave" says he  ha-3 a show to make a little money. His  outfit was shipped from Nelson last  night.  The work of putting in the foundation  for the new compressor at the Poorman  mine on Eagle creek is making good  headway.

Real estate taxes are coming in much  better this year than last. So far this  year there has been received on account  Of taxes $1131.75, as against less than  ?50 for the corresponding period last  year. For tj}$ quarter ending last month  .the receipts from various sources were:  Taxes $1131.75, electric \\%h% rates  $4846.26, water rates $3603.71, licenses  $5602.50; police court fines $440.25, miscellaneous $855, dog taxes $156, burial  permits $30, supplies $10 90, scavenger  rates ,$1308.72, weigh scales $65.  The meeting ofthe wholesale grocers  which was called for last evening in  .the office of the A. Macdonald Company,  "drew _a ��� very representative turnout of  J;he_j6cal_wholejLale__men._The_ meeting  was called for the purpose of taking action with respect to securing a wholesaler's tariff for outward shipments  from Nelson men in the retail trade,  and while the matter'was discussed no  action was taken, as it was deemed best  to adjourn the meeting until Thursday  evening at 5 o'clock, when the members  of the association will meet in the offices of the J. Y. Griffln Company.  Alex. McQueen, the well-known drummer, arrived in Nelson last evening from  Grand Forks. He says railway construction is active in the Boundary and the  people are beginning to think that the  Grand Forks & Republic railway' oufit  mean business. In fact they are making  better progress with their work than  the men in charge of Jim Hill's branch  of the Spokane Falls & Northern and-  will beat their rivals into Republic by  several weeks. The Hot Air Une, as it  is called, has Its work now well covered  all the way from Grand Forks to Republic and its steel and rolling stock is reported to be on the road.  The returns for the port of Nelson for  the months of September show that  during' the month the collections amounted to $16,070.68. The total value of  the imports for the same period was  $72,950, of which $65,729 were dutiable  and $7226 ,free. The importance of these  fiH-ures lies in the fact that while business has" generally been conceded to 'be  dull,' the customs returns show that  kthere has been fully 25 per.cent more  business transacted through the custom house than there was during the  corresponding month of the previous  year, when there was not even a whisper of dull times. This speaks volumes  for Nelson as a trading center, as it  shows that its merchants regard as insignificant; an advance of 25'per.."cent  in their trade. For September, 1900, the  total collections for the port of Nelson  was $11,175.25, and the total value of  imports $52,489 of which $44,221 represented the goods of a dutiable nature,  and $8260 the free goods.  A party of 100 Italians arrived In  Nelson on Monday evening over the C.  P. R. en route for the Lardo branch.  When they arrived in this city the Italians refused to give iip possessiori of the  car^ in which they were and the employees of the railway were at a loss  what to do when some one suggested to  turn the hose on the new arrivals. There  is an excellent pressure at the depot  and in a few minutes the Italians came  floating through the doors of the coach  in the mostapproved fashion. The visitors then decided to come up town, and  A. Ferland worked off 100 odd hats upon  the party before they got past his premises.  About 20 little boys and girls, ranging in age from 3 to 11 years, gave an  entertainment on Monday night at the  resid/ence of Jame? rMcPhee on Mill  street. The little folks had been drilled  for the occasion by Mrs. Hogan, who  acted as staga manager. Nora Scott  played the violin and made a recitation;  May Harwood gave an imitation of club  swinging and recited the "Bald-headed  Man;" Mamie Hogan gave a song-and-  dance; Maggie McPhee rendered a solo  like a prima donna; Alma Demars sang  a song in French; Jimmie Hogan gave  an Irish clog; Sadie Hogan, Katie McPhee, Kittle Scott, Agnes Harwood, and  Stella Hogan recited and warbled songs;  Gordon McPhee made a stump speech,  much better than his daddy ever did.  On the whole the entertainment was  creditable to the children and their instructress and was much enjoyed by the  relatives and friends of the children  present.  Nelson Mining Division Records.
