Tho Citizens Fittingly Celebrate the Anniversary of Confederation.
There was more or less rain both days,
oi" the Nelson Dominion Day celebration,
and for this cause the attendance was not
so large as it otherwise would have been,
but all who came to Nelson managed with
its citizens to squeeze considerable enjoyment out of the celebration—between
the showers. The rain interfered with
several features of the programme, but
all save some minor details was carried
out, and the committe lived up to its obligations faithfully. The rain hit the foot-
racers hardest, but several of the events
■were pulled oil', the chief of which were:
One hundred yard race—Dill of Kaslo,
Gus Wright, of Ainsworth, and Bob
McLeod of Nelson entered. Dill won,
Wright second.
One hundred and twenty yard hurdle
race—Dill of Kaslo and McLeod of Nelson
entered. Dill won, but McLeod was a
close second.
to Dallas, who dropped it on the Kaslo
(lags. Smith secured it, but lost to Dill,
who returned it to the Nelson defence.
The home team devoted about eight minutes here to some fine passing. Cooley
finally passed to Smith, who scored. Time
fourteen minutes.
The Horse Races.
The quarter-mile race—three in five—
free for all, was the best event in the
° horse racing. Buck and Pedro, a couple
of Sandou horses and Billy Perdue's Wea-
zle were entered for the $50and $20 purse.
Pedro and Weasle were alternately the
favorites,Buck selling in the lield. Pedro,
owned by Hammond of Sandon, won the
first heat, and the next three went to
Buck, the other Sandon horse.
In the'free for all for non-winners in
previous events, Wilson's, Harry and
George Neeland's Barney. Weasle sold as
a favorite; but was never in the race,
Harry taking three straight heats, with
Barnev second. The prizes for the event
were $'25 and $10.
The slow mule race proved rather amusing. Larkius' Pete was entered against
Perdue's Knight and won in a walk.
The Lacrosse Match
The lacrosse match between the Kaslo
and Nelson for a handsome set of medals,
was witnessed by a large crowd of spectators.    The Kaslo boys did not entertain
1 very strong hopes for success, but they
put up a game and took their defeat good-
naturedly. The Nelson team was considerably strengthened by the acquisition of
-Messrs. Turnbull'.and Devlin,-and- what
turned out to be a  very one-sided match
• was freshened up by several very pretty
exhibitions of lacrosse. When the teams
lined up it was found that the visitors
were one man short, and the Nelson team
laid off Hippersou to even things up. The
lower half of the ground was very slippery, and much merriment was furnished
the spectators by the frequent falling of
the players in the numerous puddles of
water.    The teams lined up as follows:

After a ten minutes' rest the ball was

ball from the face-oil, and passed to
Cooley, who lost to Dill. Dill dropped
the ball on the Nelson (lags, and Kaslo

much for them. He finally relieved to

The fourth game was the fastest in the
match. McMorris secured the ball from

again, and after five minutes' play on the
part of the Nelson home, Frost secured it
and sent it up the field to the Nelson defence.   Mclntyre got the ball and passed '
The Boat and Canoe Races.
The rain seriously interfered with
aquatic sports and several of the events
scheduled for Thursday were carried over
till Friday. There was-great interest
shown in the races, and the skill and
endurance manifested by the competitors
furnished much encouragement to those
who have been endeavoring to make rowing and canoeing a popular sport in the
city. There is much better material in
Nelson for a successful boat club than
most of its citizens thought, and with
practice Nelson could easily hold its own
with most of the cities in the province.
The first event called was the single
canoe race. The course was variously estimated at from one half to three-fourths
of a mile, with a turn. The only entries
in this event were Messers. Blomfield and
McRae. The race was freely conceded to
Blomfield before the start, and McRae was
permitted to use a double-bladed paddle.
The race went to Blomfield by two or
three lengths.
The chief feature of this portion of the
programme was the four-oared lapstreak
race  between  four   craws   picked   three
days before the race.   It was  rowed in
trial  heats, the   winning   crew   in 'each
coming together to decide the question of
superiority.    The course was about a mile
straightaway, up the lake and finishing
at the government wharf.   The first heat
was between the Perks and  Day crews,
made   up   as   follows:   Mclntyre   (bow),
-Ellis (2), Askew (3) and Perks (stroke), and
T. Lilhe (bow), Winters (2), Chambers (3),
and Day (stroke).   The Day crew had the
advantage of   the   inside   course, which
was   generally favored.    The   crews  got
away well and made a nice race for the
first half, after which the strength  aud
speed of Day's crew proved too much for
the Perks boat, and the former won easily in three lengths.    In  the second heat
the Donogh and Senkler crews came together.    The first was made up of Hodge
(bow), Poovah  (2), Beer (3) and  Donogh
(stroke), and the second of W. Lillie (bow),
Hale (2), Smith (3) aud Senkler (stroke).
The Donogh crew won tlie inside position,    in the start the Senkler crew got
aud  advantage and  kept it throughout
the race.   During the latter half of the
race the~D6nogh crew'pnshed the Senkler
boat pretty hard, but were unable to get
ahead,   the   latter   finishing    some   two
lengths in the lead. What was announced
as   the final between the winners of the
two trial heats was   the   most   exciting
event   on  the   programme.     The   crews
were very evenly matched and rowed a
strong race at   a lively clip.    The Day
crew won the inside course and got ahead
at  the start.    They increased  their advantage to about one-third of a length,
but during the latter half of the race the
Senkler boat came up even with Day's
forward   canvas.      Both   crews   steered
rather poorly and came over the finishing
line together,  narrowly escaping a miss-
hap.     Each   crew   claimed   a   foul,   but
neither claim was, allowed and the race
was declared a dead heat.    In rowing the
dead heat off Day's crew wbu.
The double canoe race was an exciting
event. The entries were Blomfield and
McRae and Burritt and Walbey. The
event was won by Burritt and Walbey
with'a length and a half to the good.
The four-paddle canoe race furnished a
little fun. The crews were made up of
Day, Smith, Winter aud W. Lillie, and
Burritt, McRae, Hodge and Walbey. The
latter crew steered a better course and
won easil3r in two or three lengths. After
crossing the line Smith purposely upset
his canoe and spilled its occupants into
the lake, giving them an opportunity to
furnish an exhibition iu swimming.

The Grand Jury Makes a Plain Statement Concerning the Present Lock-Up at Nelson.
Nelson grand jurors have n,habit of
compiling very interesting presentments
for the supreme court judges. That
handed in by foreman John A. Turner at
the close of the last grand jury's work
was no exception to the rule. lb recited
the following facts :
Having examined the jail, we find the
sanitary arrangement thereof in a most
disgraceful condition, from structural deficiencies and complete lack of ventilation.
As an> instance we would point out that
during the present assize it has been necessary to confine three prisoners in each
cell and we urge the government to provide a suitable jail as soon as possible.
We consider it a disgrace to the district
and the province that during the present
assize, a prisoner .against whom a true
bill for murder has been found,' has been
allowed to escape from the jail in broad
daylight. We have taken a considerable
amount of evidence in connection with
this matter and it is attached hereto in
order that it may be forwarded to the
proper authorities. We are of opinion
that much of the blame is owing to the
employment by the authorities of
amateur instead of professional jailers.
We refer more especially to the guards in
the jail.
We understand that the provincial government has provided a law library which
is at present lying in the freight shed.
We would suggest that a suitable building for its reception be added to the court
house, where at the same time some accommodations for jurors might be provided.
The government wharf, which was erected six years ago, is now badly out of repair, and further, is totally inadequate to
the present requirements of traffic.
tered for the double scull race in inrigged
boats and the former won with little
effort. ■>■..'
In the single scull-outriggers event
Chambers and Donogh came together in
the first trial heat. Chambers lead from
the start and won by about three lengths.
In the second trial Elliot and Joy contested for a place in the final, the former
winning easily.   The final has not been
rowed off.	
The Drilling Contest.
The drilling contest interested a large
crowd Friday afternoon and considerable
money changed hands'upon the result.
W. M. Ross and C. W. Smith, of the Elise
mine, Quartz Creek, won the first prize of
$150, drilling 37 7-1(5 inches, in granite in
15 minutes. The second prize went to E.
Stevenson and Joe Davis, who drilled 33

The Provincial Government Sees Pit to Ignore
the Corporation Upon Police Matters.
Charles Edward Sealey, city clerk, received notice by wire this afternoon from
colonel Baker, provincial secretary, that
Edward Albert Crease had been appointed
police magistrate for the city of Nelson
and that William Alexahder'Macdonald,
of Nelson, had been appointed a member
of the licensing board and police commissioner.
These appointments were made for the
purpose of snubbing the men whom the
electors of Nelson have chosen to' conduct
the affairs of the municipality." -The appointment of Edward Albert Crease is
made in the face of the ifnanimous wish
of the city council that P. E. Wilson of
this city should be appointed police magistrate. It is very foolish on the part of
the provincial government to thus ignore
the corporation and people of the
city of N'elson, but then the provincial
government holds the record for doing
very foolish things.
The personality of the appointees does
not enter into this question. Messrs.
Crease and Macddnald have been chosen
in order that a slight may be put upon
the corporation of Nelson and if they
have the spirit of a louse they will refuse
to serve.
Weeding Out the Vags.
The city police have commenced
weeding out the vagrants and suspicious
characters about town. On Tuesday
Arthur Locke, who made a boast that he
had not worked for seven years, was sentenced to one months imprisonment for
vagrancy by Judge Forin sitting as a
stipendiary magistrate. Robert Powell
for using obscene and profane language
on Baker street was fined $10 by Geo. A.
Bigelow. John Walters, for stealing a
coat from the Victoria hotel, was sentenced to 30 days at hard labor by the
same justice on Saturdoy. John Lynch,
an accomplice of Walters, received a like
Will Cancel the C. P. R. Lease.
Ottawa, Ont., July 2.—Minister of
railways Blair has given notice to the
Canadian Pacific that he will cancel the
agreement after a year by which they
run their traffic-over the Intercolonial
between St. John and Halifax. Mr. Blair
says the agreement is unfavorable to the
country, and he wants to make anew one
in the interests of the government
railway. It is his intention to push at
once the road into Montreal and show the
whole Dominion how a government road
can be run with profit. v
The Law Society Lost the Case,
case of  the   law   society against
Smith Curtis, of Rossland, for alleged con
tempt of court in practicing as a solicitor
before being admitted in the province,
came up on Friday at Victoria before
chief justice Davie. Archer Martin appeared for Curtis, denying the truth of
the allegations,, and, having heard his
statement, the chief justice dismissed the
case. '	
Canadian Roads Increase Earnings.
The traffic earnings of the Canadian Pacific Railway company from June Mth to
21st were: 1807, $1(50,000: 180(5, $37(5,000; increase, $8(5,000. The Grand Trunk railway's earnings from 15th June to 31st,
were as follows: 1807, $381,(502; 1S90, $35:5,

Plve Years For Shooting at Chisholm.
Malcolm McDonald, who took a shot at
R. A. Chisholm at Quartz Creek some
weeks ago, came before justice Walkem
for sentence on Monday and received five
years in the penitentiary at hard labor.
Upon a Charge of Murdering D. M. Woods  in
• October Last.
Justice Walkem on Wednesday sentenced James Woods to be hanged for
the murder of Samuel M. Woods in
Nelson on the night of October 2nd 1890.
The execution is to take place six weeks
from the date of passing sentence.
The    case   was    called   at   9. o'clock
Wednesday morning.     The   crown   was
represented by E.  P. Davis, Q.  C, aud
deputy attorney general   A.   G.   Smith.
The   prisoner   was   not   represented   by
counsel and  the   court assigned   A.   M.
Johnson to defend.   The crown presented
a very strong circumstantial case against
Woods and as.the prisoner could give no
account of his actions or whereabouts ou
the  night   of   the   shooting  there   was
nothing left for his counsel to do but try
and break down, the case presented by
the witnesses for the crown.   Through a
mistake or oversight on the part of gold
commissioner Fitzstubbs, the deposition
of    the    murdered    S.   M.   Woods   was
irregular, and it was a question whether
the  crown   could   succeed   iu having it
admitted as evidence.. It  was important
in as   much   as   in it Woods positively
identified the  prisouer as the man who
shot him.   Chiefly upon the evidence of
Dr. LaBau, concerning interviews he had
had with Woods prior to his death, the
deposition was admitted and the case for
the crown was rendered complete.
When the case was called A. M.
Johnson, on the prisoner's behalf, made
an application for a change of venue contending that it would be' impossible to
get a fair trial in Nelson owing to local
prejudice. The application was refused
by the court.
Frank Harper was the first witness
called. His evidence, was to the effect
that he had seen the prisoner around the
Tremont hotel several nights previous to
the night upon which Woods was shot
and that on the night of the shootiug he
left the hotel about 10:30 or 11 o'clock.
His evidence as to the fact of the
prisoners being around the Tremont
hotel previous to the night of the shooting
was corroborated by William Chase of
the Tremont hotel.
William Beard who was employed by
Woods aud slept iu the  blacksmith shop
with Woods where the shooting occurred
gave  practically the same evidence that
he   gave   at   the coroner's inquest,     lie
testified that he was asleep in the blacksmith shop on Josephine street on  the
night of the shooting and was awakened
by the sound of voices talking.   He heard
the murdered  man asking someone what
he was   doing  iu the shop and heard a
voice reply that it was not he that was in
the shop  but  that it was^another man
that had, gone  down the street.    He said
he heard Woods reply again that it was
he that was  in the shop as he had seen
him turn on the electric light.   The light
was. then  turned  on and  witness heard
Woods then ask "what are you going to
do ?" Woods then called witness to come
down stairs and as soon as this had been
said a shot was fired.   Witness said he
put his head out of the window and gave
the! alarm and then  saw a man running
down Josephine street.     When   he  got
down-stairs he found Woods the blacksmith lying on the floor.
The legal fightin the case came up upon
the evidence offered by Dr. LaBau upon
which the crown succeeded in getting in
the deposition of Woods in which he
identified the prisouer as the man who
had shot him. The doctor gave evidence
of having heard the shot fired, of having
heard a man running upon the sidewalk,
and of having, been called to attend
Woods a few minutes after 12 o'clock. He
found the deceased with a bullet hole in
the upper muscles of the right arm, two
and a half iuches below the shoulder and
upon examination found that the bullet
had passed through the apex of the right
lung and lodged in the backbone. He
gave evidence as to several statements
made by the murdered man himself
aud in his hearing concerning the shooting
and the man whom Woods accused of
doing it. The doctor was present on the
afternoon of Sunday, October/!, when
the identification of the prisoner by
Woods took place in the presence of gold
commissioner Fitzstubbs, constable Miles
and others. lie testified that the wound
received by Woods was fatal aud was the
direct cause of death.
Mrs. Malette of the ivootenay hotel said
that she heard voices about 12 o'clock on
the night of the shooting, She saw tlie
blacksmith lead a man into the blacksmith shop and turn on the electric light.
When the light was turned on she saw
the man draw a revolver and lire at
Woods. The man who fired the shot then
ran away. She heard his footsteps
running down Vernon street and across
the Vernon street bridge.
John Nelson of the Kootenay hotel also
testified to having seen a man running
past the hotel in the direction of the
Vernon street bridge.
Alex. Dow, engineer on the C. & K.
railway, testified that tin; clay following
the murder he saw the prisoner-asleep
near the railway track about Hi miles
from Nelson and detailed the suspicious
actions of the prisoner. He first started
to go back into the brush and afterwards
made a feint of returning in tlie direction
of Nelson. it was upon information
received from Dow that the arrest was
Ex-constable John Miles gave evidence
concerning the arrest of the prisoner and
the finding upon him. of a 38 calibre
revolver, a billy and a. couple of. razors.
He also related the incidents in connection with the identification of the
prisoner by the deceased and repeated
soveral conversations  which he had had
concerning the man who shot him and his
general appearance.
Charles E. Tisdall, an expert gunsmith
from Vancouver, swore that the bullet
which was taken from the body of the
deceased by the doctors was manufactured by the Peters Cartridge Company,
aud that the revolver which was what is
commonly known as a 38 calibre, was of
American manufacture and was about'
equal to the gauge of the English 35 calibre. He positively identified the bullet
taken from tlie body of Woods as being
the manufacture of the Peters company,
as were also the cartridges remaining in
the revolver found'upou the prisoner.
This closed the case for the crown and
as the prisoner made no statement there
was little left for tlie counsel to do. Dr.
Arthur was the only witness called for
the defense. He was called for the purpose of giving evidence as to the effect of
morphine upou the mind, with a view to
weakening the deposition of Woods,.
which was put in by the crown. His evidence was not up to the expectations of
the defence. „
The case was closed at 4:15 o'clock and
A. M. Johnson addressed the jury on the
prisoner's behalf. He spoke for 20 minutes and made a very good address, considering the short time he had had for
preparation. E. P. Davis' Q. C, addressed
the jury on behalf of the crown, speaking
till after 5 o!clock. Justice Walkem
charged strongly against the, prisoner.
The jury retired and returned in about
10 minutes with a verdict of guilty.
A. M. Johnson then asked for an arrest
of judgment and asked the court to state
a case upon the question of the admissibility as evidence of the statement made
by Woods previous to his death, taken
by gold commissioner Fitzstubbs on Sunday, October 1th. This was denied and
justice Walkem thereupon proceeded to
sentence the prisoner. The sentence was
that he should be removed to Westminster and be returned, to Nelson to be
hanged six weeks from June 30th.
Throughout the trial the, prisoner did
not betray any feeling whatever. He
has not the bearing of an innocent man,
and in 'the opinion of most people any
other termination of the case would have
beeu regarded as a miscarriage of justice.
The jurors who sat upon the case were :
Wj M. Leach, Frederick, Swaunell, David
S. Hardie, James Allen, Albert B.
Shannon, W. J. IL McKernan,Christopher
F. Allen; Thomas W. Gray, William N.
Ironside, Frank Bruce, David R. Taylor
aud Kenneth Curtis.
Valuable ■ Claims-are Jumped Upon a Technicality and Great Excitement Prevails.
The Rossland Miner this morning published a dispatch respecting the m"ore or
less successful jumping of the Volcanic,
Iron Cap, Wolverine and Coin mineral
claims, near Grand Forks, in which the
most prominent men of the city are implicated. The Volcanic, which has a
world-wide reputation as being the most
extensive mineral deposit in the known
world, has been or is, owned by the Olive
Gold Milling company, with a capitalization of $20,000. This company also owns,
or owned the Iron Cap, an extension of
the Volcanic and Wolverine, on the opposite side of the north fork of the Kettle
river and within sight of the other
properties. l
The law passed at the last session of
the provincial parliament providing that
mining incorporations must pay a license
of $100 by July 1, has in the case of the
Olive Gold Mining company not been complied with, although rumor has it that
those who were£6 attend to this business
had told other interested parties that the
money had been paid. The officers of the
company are: S. P. Shope, of Chicago,
president; John A. Manly, mayor of
Grand Forks, vice-president; Harry W.
Treat, Chicago, secretary; Edward Blew-
ett, Seattle, treasurer. The trustees, in
addition to the foregoing are W. Call, of
Midway, and Nels Larsen, of this city.
Wednesday evening Chas. Cummings,
manager of the Grand Forks townsite,
accompanied by Dave, Woodhead. a
miner ef the city, went up the north fork
toward the Volcanic, for the purpose, it
is said, of jumping the Volcanic and Iron
Cap soon as they became vacant, which
would be one minute after midnight.
They have not yet returned, so the result
of their expedition cannot be learned.
The Crow's Nest Pass Railway.
Vice-president Shaughnessy says now
that the Crow's Nest pass legislation has-
been completed, the work of construction
will be pushed with the utmost. rapiditj\
M. J. Haney, who has entire charge
of construction, will at once let the work
out in small contracts so as to expedite
the work. The company calculates on
having 125 miles completed by December,
or, in other words, expects to be across the
summit before the snow falls.
The whole western- country will be
drawn from in the purchase of supplies
and the expenditure in this connection
will be great. In the first hundred miles
of road it is estimated that from eight to
ten million feet of lumber will be drawn
from the British Columbia mills. The
subsistence and forage for the first camps
will be purchased in Winnipeg, which
will be the source of supply for some
time. Mr. Haney has had considerable
experience in building -railroads in the
west. He came to Winnipeg in 1877 to
build the Pembina branch of the C. P. R.
Later he was appointed by the L>ominion
government to complete the famous
section 15 of the C. P. li. .He also completed the Ondcrdonk contract on the
U. P. IL in British Columbia.

Ore and'Matto Exports Growing Again."
Although there were noshipments from
the mines of the Slocan entered at the
port of Nelson for the last few days of
June the shipments of matte and bullion

sufficient to bring up the month's aggregate to close upon $500,000. These two
smelters, together with the Le Roi mine
at Rossland, were the only shippers entering matte or ore at the customs for export since Friday of last week. The entries were:

Burglars Make a Good Haul.
Early this morning burglars entered the
dry goods store of F.Irvine & Co.'by
forcing the back door and secured about
$500 worth of goods. From the appearance of the store when it. was opened for
business this morning the burglar or burglars must have been familiar with the
dry goods trade and the disposition of the
goods in the store. Nothing but the more
expensive class of goods was taken and
nothing was disturbed which was not
taken. The visitors evidently knew/good
goods and just where to lav their hands
upon them. The police have peen noti-'
fied of the theft.
Final Payment on Silver Glance.
John S. Baker, of Tacoma, is said to
have made the final payment upon the
Silver Glance bond. The Silver Glance
was located by Mesrs. McLeod, Fitch and
Franklin and was bonded in January last
for $10,000. It is developed by a tunnel
about 100 feet on the ledge, and the ore'
assays some 70 ounces silver and about $S
in gold. The property has developed well
and had the final payment not been made
by • Baker the boys could easily have
placed the proport3r upon better terms.

The rank and file of political parties are
alike; so are the leaders. When their
party is out of office, the cry is reform
aud retrenchment: when in office the practice is expenditure aud extravagance. The
Conservative party was in oflice for
twenty years. They were extravagant.
The Liberals said they were even worse;
, that they were corrupt.' The Liberals
have been in power only a year. They
have not retrenched expenditures, however much they may have reformed
ollicial abuses. Should they retain oflice
for twenty years, the country will in no
way be in better shape than if the Conservatives had remained in office. The
trouble is that all—or nearly all—men are
liberal when it comes to. spending other
people's money. Office holders always
spend other people's money.
The present government iu British
Columbia is a nondescript, and no explanation can be given why it retains office,
other than the fact that the people, at
times, like to .look at curiosities,
premier is a fairly sensible man
surrounded with sensible men ; the
attorney-general is no good ; the commissioner of lands and works is too much
of a hail fellow ; the provincial secretary
is a faddist; the president of the council
is a corporation lawyer. The subordinate
officials are as bad a lot as are the chiefs.
They have been so long in office'that they
imagine .the country cannot get along
without them ; their methods of doing
business are not up to date ; they are so
numerous that they are in the way of
each other. The whole outfit should be
made walk the gangway. This can be
done a year hence if the people who are
qualified to register will go to the trouble
to have their names' placed on the voters'
list. Every man in Kootenay qualified to
register should register at once.
Jt is not likely that Kootenay will be
accorded the representation in the legislative assembly that it is entitled to, for
the coast is jealous of Kootenay. Even
were Kootenay to show that it had one-
half the population of the province, the
present government would not give it
more than one-fourth of the members of
the house. Kootenay must fight for
what it is entitled to, and the prelini-
iniary skirmish, line should be made up
of men who will see that the name of
every man qualified to vote is on the
voter's list.     -
George Turner, who is a United States
senator from the state of Washington, is
said to be in Ottawa using his influence
against the imposition of an export duty
on ore. Mr. Turner is one of the owners
of the Le Roi mine at Rossland, and the
owners of that mine are contemplating
the erection of a smelter to treat their
own ore. They want to locate it on the
south side of the international boundary
line, preferring Northport as a site. The
placing of an export duty on ore would
handicap them, hence Mr. Turner's trip
to Ottawa. In commenting on the question, the Spokane Review says the owners
of the Le Roi will close down the mine
rather than submit to the exact ions of
the Dominion government. If they
are foolish enough to take such action. Canada can stand it as well as- can
the owners of the Le Roi. Canada was a
fairly prosperous country long before the
birth of any of the men who now hold
shares in the Le 'Roi Mining & Smelting
Company, and will be a good country in
Avhich to live long after they are all dead.
Most of the owners of the Le Roi were on
"their uppers" two years ago; but now
that they have had a few thousand dollars distributed among them from the
yield of a Canadian mine, they imagine
they can run Canada and her people'.
George Turner had better be in Washington attending to the interests of the people of his state. ',
"Gen Els a i." Charles Warren of Spokane is also up in arms against the laws
of Canada, more especially of this province. Because mining companies are required to take out a license and pay for,
it, he has called on all his prospecting
parties to return from British Columbia
to Spokane. Two years ago "general"
Warren was without the means ,to even
keep himself in British Columbia for any
great length of. time, to say nothing of
keeping prospecting parties in the field.
Through associating with a mau who had
conlidence in the country aud "nerve," he
has made money, and is now said to be
living on Easy street. "General," while
your geniality will always be held in
kindly remembrance by a l'ew'of your intimates, your ingratitude will be resented
by all self-respecting Canadians.
Girr/.nsti of the United States come to
British Columbia, and will be welcome
just as long as they do not bite the hand
that feeds them.  '
* The Victoria Colonist says that "evi-
" deuce multiplies that the province
" is»very much in earnest in demanding a
" a railway through western Kootenay."
We suppose the Colonist means that the
people of the province are very much in
earnest in demanding that the Dominion
government shall bonus the Columbia &
Western railway from Robson to Pentic-
ton; in other words, bonus another Canadian Pacific branch railway. The Colonist
is mistaken'. The people of the province,
who have property interests, are not demanding any such thing. The people are
of the opinion that the Canadian Pacific
should build its branch roads without a
bonus from either the Dominion or the
province. The building of the Columbia
& Western railway would not give the
merchants of the coast cities acompetitive
route to western Kootenay, however much
the building of that road might add to
the receipts of the Canadian Pacific. The
coast cities have competitive routes to all'
points in southern Kootenay, and what
more do they want, unless it be a/railway
that will run from tidewater to some
central point in Kootenay, and be operated
independent of existing lines. The Colonist does nob fairly represent the wishes
of the people in this matter; but then
The Colonist seldom represents the wishes
of the people on any question.

The smelter team did not compete iu
the tug of war tournament on Friday.
There are some big strong men around
the smelter who never let go of a rope
and they had decided to teach the boys
around town a thing or two about
pulling, but they had a slight misunderstanding among themselves and the tug
of war contest was abandoned. it
appears that the boys were practicing on
a rope'last Wednesday evening. It was
rather'dark and one side snubbed the
rope around a tree. The men on the other
end tugged until their hands were sore,
but they could gain only such of the rope
as their opponents were willing to pay
out, and the latter being the fresher
could easily take such in and snub it
around the tree again. When the trick
was discovered a free light was narrowly
averted, and no one had the hardihood
since to mention a tug of war contest.

The Payne is shipping 40 tons of ore a
day, one-quarter of which goes via the C.
P. R. The output will be increased as
soon as more wagons can be procured.
No. 3 tunnel is expected to strike the lead
very shortly, when the force of miners
and output of ore will be still further increased.
Work upon the wagon road connecting
the Rambler-Cariboo mine with the Mc-
Guigan creek trunk road has been completed and ore is now being prepared for
shipment. The cross-cut tunnel has been
run about 2150 feet and it has about 200
feet further to run to strike the lead:
When this is reached an increased depth
of 300 feet below tlie upper workings will
have been secured. A power drill has
been put in and is about ready to be operated.
The Ibex mine has commenced shipping,
the first shipment having reached Kaslo
on Wednesday. There are four car-loads
of ore at the mine awaiting shipment.

the secondchute of the mine when in 300
feet and at a depth of 185 feet. They

Paper ' rails   for   railways   are   finding
great favor in  the United States.   The
iron  or steel  rails now in use are by no
means   free   from   defects.     The   metal
is always  more  or  less affected   by the
condition of the atmosphere,   and accidents   are   frequently   traced     to     the
warping,    contraction   or   expansion   of
the  rails.     Again,  there   are  flaws   and
similar    imperfections   in    rails   of   the
metallic   order,   and    these   often   give
trouble.     The    heavy   locomotives   and
other.rolling stock of these days require
fiuire extraordinary large and heavy rails;
consequently  the rails cannot be made
very loner as  the  weight  would   be  too
much.    The   paper   rails   are   less   than
one-half   lighter   for    the    same   length
and     size,    so     that,   as     far    as    the
weight     question     is    concerned,     the
length  of   tlie latter can   be  twice'that
of the iron or  steel   rail.   This  obviates
the use of just so many joints, dispensing
with so many bolts and connections, and
relieving the wheels  of the coach  from
just so many shocks.
