NELSON,   I5HI.TISII   COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, JULY  (J,   ISM.
PRICE  TEN  CENTS.
NELSON   DOES   HERSELF   PROUD.
DOMINION   DAY   CELEBRATED   WITHOUT
FRICTION   OR  ACCIDENT.
Two Thousand People in Attendance, Everyone of Whom Had the Worth of Their
Money in- Sport  and Recreation.
Other towns in Ciiiwula   may   have celebrated Dominion Day in a. more imposing
manner than   Nelson, but no One of them
h id a celebration   which passed   oil' man-.
satisfactorily.      In   the   lirst   place,   (lie
weather was perfect; in tin; second place,
the crowd   in   attendance  was   iii   good
humor: in the third place, the committees
in charge did their work without clashing
either with   the  crowd   or  among  themselves.    The sports  and panics   were well
contested, (.lie result showing   that  there
are a   number of   pretty good   all-round
al,hle(ic.  young men  in the   lake country.
The  horse  races  were  for "blood."  and
that they were on the square is bestshown
by the   fact that not a single "kick * was
registered at the time or heard afterwards.
There  was rivalry, but no animosity, between the people in   attendance from  the
different towns.    There was no lack of enthusiast n: but noil run ken i loss. The crowd
was   large (about   2000),   and   was   from
.Southern Kootenay.    'Although times are
hard,'there was enough money in circulation to keep things well greased. The music
was  not  imported, .and   was spirited  at
times.    The   dancing  was   in  a  pavilion
erected for the occasion, and all in'attendance had room to put their best foot Lore-
most.
While the celebration was lacking in oratory, a distinguishing feature of natal
day■"celebrations in the republic to the
south, Americans who were in attendance
declared ''themselves strongly in favor ■of
the Canadian style, as it was entirely in
keeping with the event celebrated.
Following is a brief summary of the
sports, games, and races:

and on one end of il wasa large iron hook. This hook
was sunk in the ground, making an anchorage equal

the hook end of ihe rope, ami the east captain wondered why it, was that his 3.i-odd stalwarts didn I
budge the 1.1-odd pulling agaiusl them. The hook
only gave way when the east side was reinforced by
half a hundred more -stalwarts. Kach side was given

evening a contest took place between a team from

a good one. For the lirsl. two -minutes the Ivaslo

These events were postponed from the forenoon of
Saturday until the evening, and when called noone
appeared to want, to enter in the single, and only one
entry was made for the double. The races .were declared oil'. The reason for the lack of interest, in boating is the lack of suitable boats-, no one caring lo row
ina skill'againsl another in a shell. In future, skill's
of unilorm size should be provided by those having

to  make a   good   trail   from  the   Ilouser

Silver  Mine:: Not Wanted.
\V. A. .Jowett. who went to iMigland hist
winter to make a dcai on mining property
in the. I.itirdo country, returned   to Nelson
on .Monday,coming in from Jiomier's l*'erry
on   the  State of  Idaho.    .Mr.   .Jowett left
Kngland on June lOfh.    lie says  it is useless  to  attempt   placing silver  mines   in
England   at   present,   not   because   of a
scarcity  of money,   but  because  of   (he
belief pro wail ing over there that si I ver has
no stable   value.    While he  did not, meet
any of the Silver King people, he heard of
them.    It is understood that the property
is stocked, although   the stock   is not offered for sale publicly:  it is  being placed
among personal   friends of  .Mr.   Hainsay.
In Kngland. money  is locked up a wail inir
investment in gilt-edge   American   si cuinitios at an opportune  time, that is. wnen
the price of the securities is down   lo bed

stopped a   few days at Chicago and took

The Government Should not Foot the Bill.
Two years ago the government expended several thousa nddollars in putting
a trail through from the head of Kootenay lake to the east end of Trout lake, for
which expenditure 31 r. Kellie was roundly
abus.od tit the time. This spring another
trail,' practically paralleling the old one,
wtis put through from a point on Ilouser
hike to the mouth of llealey creek. At
the time it wasJicing built, it was given
out that the cost was contributed by the
owners of the townsite (Duncan City)
from which it started. This appears to
be a mistake, however, for the government is now e.'i lied on to foot the bill.
Tilt: Tuir.l'XK has no hesitation in staling
its position on the question at issue. In
the lirst place, the trail was built to boom a
townsite. therefore the townsite owners
should pay the cost of its building. In the
second place, the trail was not needed, as
the old trail is reported in excellent condition. If the government foots ihe bill,
wrong will be done sections of t he district
which do not happen to base ;\ government member interested in I hem.

" Jag"' Carriers, Beware
c- The IVnnsylvtinia legislature has recently given tin interesting exhibition of
paternalism by enacting a law designed
for the special benefit of men who tire in
the habit of carrying "jags." This extraordinary enactment authorizes anv habitual drunkard who may be brought before a justice of the peace to elect, upon
eonvictiofi. whether he will submit-to the
ordinary penalty or taken course of treatment at some •'gold-cure" institution. Li'
he prefers the hitter, and will give a bond
to submit to this reformatory process,
then other sentence shall be suspended.
I fat the end of two months it shall appear that the unfortunate man with a
"jag" has been faithful tohis engagement,
and has made an honest trial of the new
cure, he shall be discharged. J3ut if il
shall turn out otherwise, then he shall
still be litible to the full penalty of the
law. As soon as Nelson is incorporated,
tin ordinance containing the above provisions should bo passed, solely for the benefit of a few of tJie old-timers who tire
never so happy as when carrying a ''jag."

I f the following  from a Fort Steele letter to the Bonner's  Ferry  Herald is .true,
tlie  Great Northern, in connection   with
the steamboat Annerly. is invading territory long looked  on as  belonging exclusively to the Canadian   Pacific.    The'Herald   correspondent   says:    "Through   the

.Montana, we  are  blo.-.-od  with a   regular
weekly  steamboat service   that  delivers

very swift  river with a  current   in  some
places running ten milesan hour, but the
Annerly makes  the run from Jennings to
Fort Steele in twenty-nine hours  and the
return trip in eight, a distanceof lot) miles.
A draw is   also   being  put in   the   bridge
that spans the  Kootenay at   Fort Steele,
and when completed the Annerly will run
still farther up   the   river on her weekly
trips."          __   _,

Who Would Destroy all Governments —— The
One Should be Condemned as the Other is
Detested. 	
There tire honest differences of opinion
on all great questions, and that of. Silver
is one of these great questions.    Without
attempting to give the arguments used
for or against the use of silver as money,
TiiKTuimrxic can only say that if si I ver
is demonetized millions of people depending on its mining will be reduced to want
sind hundreds of miliionsof property ven-'
dered valueless.    AH   for what?   -Merely
to make richer the few already rich.    Is
not property created by tlie silver mining
industry as fairly entitled to the protection  of governments as that created  by
any other  industry?     If   so,  then  why
should   governments   destroy   it?    Why
should  the   government   of   the   United
States destroy, by legal enactment, the
towns upbuilt  by silver  miners   in   tlie
states and territories  west of the  Mississippi river?   The  builders of these towns
have in no way sought to render valueless
the  towns  upbuilt  by   the  farmers and
manufacturers in the states to theeastof
that great river.    Why should that government destroy the  earning capacity of
the railroads of the west, which it will do
if silver is demonetized.   Should  the government onacta law placing a prohibitory
export duty on wheat or on cotton, wJiat
would be the result?    Whole.states would
be impoverished.    Vet the one is no more
unfair than the other.    The people of the
west are as dependent on the silver mining industry tis are the people of the east
or of the south on the raising of wheat or
of cotton.   The product of silver mining is
a   metal   tluit  has for ages been used as
money in all countries; a metal that costs
for production more than its money value,
even if that value was on a basis of h'ik-   <
teen ounces of silver to one of gold.   That
its production   litis increased   nood not be
denied, for the  increase  litis not .been in
greater rtitio than  the increase  of trade
and commerce.    Its demonetization is not
asked  for  by  the  people of  the   United
States;  by the   people  who create pro]>-
ertv and  after its creation defend it and

their country with their lives, JSut its
demonetization is asked for by the l\-\v
who grow rich through the labor of others;
by the 'few who in tlie time of their country's peril are never found fighting in the
front ranks. But the few are the money
power, and' the -'money power rules till
governments, that of the United States
not excepted.
I'residcnt Cleveland is generally considered an honest man;'hut he. is self-opinionated. Ills ideas on the silver question
are well known. He would make silver a
commodity, Mice iron or copper or'lead,
well knowing that in doing so it would
Imve no commercial vtdite. As president,
he has used his every influence, accompanied by threats, to force the legislative
branch of the government to his wtiy of
thinking. Whether he has succeeded will
be proven after congress meets in special
session on August 7th. Silver litis many
able friends in both houses of congress:
so h;is the money power. Will the latter
triumph?

The above telegram was in reply to one
sent by Thk Tnnu'XK asking.whether the
Selby Lead Works would continue purchasing ore, and wlmt was the ruling
price in San Francisco for lead. A telegram of inquiry as to the price of lead
and silver in New York was also sent to
Spokane. The price'of silver was given
tit ~'-'>-j cents, but no quotation was i'e-
turiied for load. Load was quoted in the
fore part of the week at 'A\ cents. The
only mine owner likely to ship ore from
this section i-' Ceorgo W. Hughes, who
has ore in the .Mountain Chief that can be
shipped at a profit, even if silver should
drop to .1(1 cents. He sent thirty pack
animals up to the mine last week, intending to use them in packing ore from the
mine to the end of the wagon road at
Watson, a distance of about nine miles:
thence the ore would go to Kaslo by-
wagon. .Mr. Hughes, while not posing as
an authority ou the silver uuestion. or
even pretending to understand that question, says be will (tike chances that his
ore will be worth as much in the warehouse tit Kaslo as in the mine, and that
his animals might as well be at work as
standing idle. The Slocjin country needs
a- few more men like .Mr. Hughes.
One Is  Patriotic,  the Other is Unpatriotic.
A country that would destroy tin; property interests of its people at the demand
of the money power of another country
cannot long snrvi vo. Yet t hat will bo (Ik;

NOT   SO   BAD   AS   FIRST   THOUGHT.
A   week  ago today,  when   the outlook
for silver wtis vovy  gloomy, a representative of one of the   largest smelting  concerns   in the country   is reported   to have
said: " This sudden drop in silver may be
" only a flurry, and   there may   be tin iin-
" provement in a   week or   ten days;   but
" one tiling is certain, the.'-nielters will all

'• value.    If the price of silver continues
'; low. as it probably will for some time, it
': will have the effect of shortening  the
" lead  supply, as  many  of the   mines of
" Colorado and Utah, which tire classed as
"silver mines,  contain  a  suflicient  percentage of lead to  have a  material in-

over, find the price of silver is advancing,

" You have no idea how respectable citizens kick when gambling houses find
other off-color resorts .are closed by the
police."'
This startling sttiteinent was made to a
newspaperman recently by a prominent
official of the New York police department.
"Well, it's a fact," continued the
..speaker, more positive than before.
'■''When 1 wtis captrinofacertain precinct
downtown, which was fairly honey com lied
with dens oi: vice, some gilded, but t.he
most of them just plain, everyday sinks of
iniquity,.! incurred the enmity of till the
respectable tradesmen who did business
in the-precinct. Of course 1 set to work to
close up as many of these dens as I could
and drive away the people who made their
living in them. Well, 1 raided one place
after another until almost all of these resorts had been wiped out. When I 'raided
a place some rosy-cheeked grocery man,
the honest father of an honest family!
would call on me next day or meet me in
the street,'and say:
"'Captain, what. made, you close that
place? It's inmates, were my very best
customers. They had plenty of money
a i id always ordered bigquanti ties of goods
and paid spot cash. If you keep on closing
up these resorts I'll have to close up business myself.'
*' " One time I closed up a notorious place,
and the very nextday around came a prosperous and influential citizen of the precinct who ran a big livery stable.
"'Look here, captain," he said to me. 'I
don't think this is fair. Those folks you
'hauled in last night pretty nearly paid
the feed bill of my entire stable every
month. They were always ordering carriages, find they never forgot to pay lor
their drives, as some people who' tire
church members do.- If you keep ou you
will drive me into some other precinct.
My business has fallen oil' one-half since
you began this crusade.'
"Well, that's the kind of roasting I got
from till the shopkeepers in the precinct.
It was just the same up town further, in
the neighborhood where the great <lvy
goods stores are. I was always lighting
the gamblers and other dissolute people.
Once when I closed up a dozen resorts in
one night and arraigned the inmates in
court the next day, the business manager
of one of the biggest dry goods stores in
the avenue came to me find protested vigorously, saying that the women whom I
In id arrested bought the most expensive
materials in the store and paid cash, and
that the store wtis largely dependent on
them for trade. I told him I had to do
my duty, and he left declaring that he
thought I was too ofiieiousaiid that it was
a shame to close these places. You see.
sports, gamblers, and people of that kind
are very free spenders, and they keep the
money circulating. When they are Hush
they want the best and they pay cash
for it."

Many claims were taken up last, year by parties unable

these claims will be found to be very valuable, and Ihere
will be a rush to re-stake them when they lupsu.
This timely publication gives Ihe dale jf record, name

The cost of gelling the above information respecting

The United States Government Subservient to
Wall Street Sharks.
In a riM'oiit; number  ol' the Suit  Lake
Tribune.   "Dan   do Quillo."  a  newspaper
man wlio lias been 011 Llie trreat-CoinsLock
lode at. Virginia, Nevada, since Llie early
clays, writes as follows regard iui; the mining industry in Nevada.    What is true of
Nevada  is  true of every state. territory,
and province in which mining- for silver is
Che chief industry,    li' silver is not to bo
used  for money the people living1 in the
vast mountain areas of the United States
and Canada, must of necossity seek other
fields  In   wliieli   to - labor.      Ami   Avhiiher
will  they go?   Go eastward and compete
in  already overcrowded  labor markets?
The outlook is indeed gloomy and. it will
not  be brighter  as long as  the governments of the great commercial nations of
the world are under the thumb of subtle
inlanders like the Hothcliilds.   That the
government of the United States is under
the thumb of the magnates of Wall street
in  New  York is not even disputed; and
history records but few instances of such
men allowing patriotism to get the better
of their avariciousness.    No government
on earth is today more subservient to the
money power, and  therefore  more cowardly and lacking- in patriotism, than that
of the  United States.    "Dan de Quillo,"
-who,   by   the   way,   is   an   Englishman,
named William Morris, says:
"Mining is at a. very low ebb, both on
the Comstock and in 'other parts of
Nevada. On the Comstock the ore obtained is gleaned from streaks and
stringers on the old levels, and from old
Idlings—material -which was dumped into
worked out places in the early days as
waste rock. But for the large per cent of
gold found in.most of the ore of the Comstock mines it could not be worked at the
present price of silver.bullion. The gold
found enables the companies to lingei
along- after a fashion—life not coming
wholly through assessments — whereii
without it a general closing down of tin
mines would be inevitable. 'While there
is life there is hope.' and it is constantly
hoped that something may yet occur to
enable our mines to be worked to a living
profit. This is what we. want and what
;'all men in all the industries of the country
-east, west, and south want. That wliicli
will give a new start to the wheels of the
mining industry will given fresh impetus
to the wheels of all the industries.
"While the per cent of gold we are getting on the Comstock keeps us alive it has
boon found necessary to close down'the
mines of Candelaria and soiimothercanips
where the veins are purely silver bearing.
The discount on silver bullion in scores of
mines is so heavy !l lax tl'at ^ Ki"s {l"
profit. The manner in which silver has
been sat down upon by the government
not only discourages mining but also discourages all prospecting—men no longer
go out into and explore the wilds of the
country as in former times. They fed
that it is of no use for them to toil and
wear out their lives" to find thai, which
men of the east, sitting in their counting1
rooms, may with a breath render of liLtle
or no value. When one class may thus,
with a word, render unvaluable the exertions and enterprises of another, the result is by no means favorable to the progress in any industry or undertaking.
The gold-bug, like the 'Old Man of the
Sea.' sits astride the neck of every industry 'in tlie land.
'"'We see now throughout the country
failures, assignments and all manner (if
troubles. Everywhere in the east gold
lnononielallist.s assort that all these
troubles are owing to the Sherman act,
sitxi that the only cure lies in the repeal
of that act.   That   is a remedy  which,

would merely aggravate the disease. Inefficient as the Sherman act is. it has added many more millions to the legal tender currency of the country than are in
the gold reserve about which so much is
heard as being the mainstay and very
sheet-anchor of the country. To kill tlie
Sherman act without providing some substitute by means of which silver may be
used in Mime shape as money, would but
add to the present trouble. Whatever
lessens the amount of money lessens the
value of all property. l'
"It is the shrinkage of values that is
causing tlie many financial failures. Any
measure that would cause a further
shrinkage of values would but add to the
number of failures. That which causes
the shrinkage in the value of property of
every kind is the small amount of the one

down? There is in the country plenty ol
all kinds of property, but there is not a
proportionate amount of money, and the
amount in circulation is being constantly
contracted.
".In the east the banking plutocracy and
their hired newspapers are using every
elTort to make the masses believe that the
silver men and silver are wholly to blame
for the present financial disturbances that
are den.orali/.ing the business and industries of the country, whereas it litis been
brought about -wholly and solely through
gold-Dug .niacin lia.fcionsand manipulations.
Were the people permitted to live under
the laws'of the United States government
there would be seen nothing of the present financial troubles. Silver would be
.paid out on'silver certificates and cm till
other demands marie upon the govern-
nent. But wehave a government outside
of and above the United States govern
-nont—the Wall Street government. I'lli.-
Wall Street government wholly ignore:
the laws of the United States governmenl.
it says silver shall not be paid out in-re-
.loinpLion of silver certificates nor for an\
iither form of government indebtedness,
it demands that gold, and gold alone,
oe paid out continually and in satisl'ac-
.ion of all demands. The laws of thegov-
orniuentof the United States are trampled
tnder foot ;is a mere farce. The country
is being run under tlie laws formula ted by
■he Wall Street government and that
foverninent and that alone is responsible
l'orthe present demoralized condition'of
the finances, business, and industries of
the country. The United States government no longer has any voice in tlie financial affairs of the country, nor has it had
since the Wall Street government was set
up in KST.'i. The laws of the United States
government say one thing and Llie la wsof
the Willi Street government say another
directly the opposite. The time is now
near at hand when will be asked of every
man in the United States—"Under which
Icing, Hc/.ouiiin? speak, or die.' The Wall
Street tail litis too long been wagging the
United States dog-. One interpretation of
the. laws for a .favored class and another
for the 'commons' is unendurable under
'the Star Spangled Banner." We must
pull together or pull apart. " If a house lie
divided against itself, that house cannot
.stand.'" __' 	
The Americans Are Not a Great People.
Butte, (.Montana) Inter-Mountain: ••But
what a travesty it is upon the greatness
of the American nation, with its (!,">.OOO.OOO
of civilized people and greater natural resources than any other country on earth,
that its whole financial system should he
shaken because a semi-barbarous dependency of (ireat; Britain in South Asia litis
decided to stop the coinage of silver!
Why. if we took proper care of our own
silver Kngland would have to pay a premium to get what it would retpiire for its
India accounts, for if will be seen that it is
not proposed to place India, on a gold basis. But why on earth should a, country
like the United States attune its financial
policy to that of the semi-savages of far
off liidia ? That is a question which every
solf-rospeci ing American will ask himself."
WHAT   IS   A   MILLIONAIRE ?
Is a Million in Gold of as Great Value as a
Million in Other Property ?
It is alleged thai it is the constant study
of millionaires Lo grow into multi-millionaires. As to that, wo have nothing to say
here, theobjoct being to study millionaires
themselves, through a- lew brief paragraphs.
What is a millionaire? A person with a
million dollars. If this person has exactly
one million dollars in gold, ail Lold, in a
safe deposit vault, ho or she is supposed
to bo a real, bona fide millionaire ; if the
pile does not decrease, he or she will remain a- millionaire.
Money being worth, say, four per cent,
let us suppose tiie case of a man who for
the past ton yetirs has been forging ahead,
financially. Mis not income during those
ten years litis averaged forty thousand
doliars per year. Is this man a millionaire,
on an average? As forty thousand dollars is tlie interest on a million for one
year at four per cent, we must conclude
that this man has been, on an average, a
millionaire.
By his wits, aided by Dame Fortune, a
patron of the turf has netted an income of
forty thousand dollars a year for the same
ten years—is he also a millionaire ?
A,journalist, attorney, architect, inventor or building contractor has averaged a
like sum per year in salary, fees, royalties
—thea-bility, the occupation, the business
that netted such a- sum was equivalent to
one million dollars.
Now, let us go back to the safe deposit
vault. The alleged bona lide millionaire
has a million dollars in gold there. Unless lie has other means of live.iheod and
of paying the rout of the vault, he is not a
millionaire. If ho puts his million out on
interest tit four per cent in government
bonds, he will not be worth a million, because four percent United States government bonds, payable in 1007, are al a premium (today, July -Iill, KSOo); and his annual income will be less than forty thousand dollars.
We conclude, therefore, that a person
with exactly and only a million dollars in
gold is not likely to be.a milliouaircat all,,
while it is possible for a-worker- of brains
and industry to enjoy the income derived
from one million dollars at'four per cent
per annum.
The question is, are millionaires and
their millions created and sustained by
that modern omnipotence called progress ?
Or is this question iho outcome of a socialistic dream?
Forty years ago, a" tract of land of one
hundred and sixty acres lay contiguous to
a .'..thriving lakepoi-t city, in one of the
slates borderingon one of the great lakes.
The owner of the hind hail all lie could do
to live upon it. .Pioneer- hardships, the
corduroy road ami the ox-team mti.de his
visits to town so few and far between that
for years the pioneer was engaged in making the land into a farm. Neighbors'came
'co the same section, they bellied one
another; but no money passed. These
were the pioneer days.
The civu war found stalwart sons and
patriotic .fathers who went to the front,
tint the farms were not neglected. Tlie
younger sons—mere boys—took good care
jf those farms. After the war is over,
■prosperity sets in and adds to the large
ituns accumulated during the time of big-
prices. The city on the great hikes route
grows to be a great railroad, commercial,
and manufacturing center.
A few years ago an improved farm of
one hundred'and. sixty acres' in that region Wcis worth about eight thousand dollars. Forty yetirs ago it wtis the abiding
place of a hardy pioneer who worked hard
all day and every day for his board, and
very inferior board it was, except that it
was sweetened with independence, and
flavored with the si-1 ointi. of home. Today
that farm is part of a solid city. And our
pioneer litis not sold tiny of the lots the
"company" which is composed of himself
and his family and a lew wealthy bankers
have not failed during the recent period
of uncertainty.
The great tinny of labor invaded that
quarter section, and where that army
conies and. receives steady and remunerative employment business thrives, "subdivisions are added to cities, booms are
not needed. Our pioneer fanner of forty
yetirs ago is worth today more than one
million, lie litis no slippery "bonds" in
the bauds of despairing bankers, lie was
never in ti hurry. His associates in the
great factory with its thousand workmen,
in the electric railway, in the First
National Bank, are not in a hurry.
But—mark you -shut up that great
factory, let the workmen go elsewhere,
let progress frown for one short year and
then leave that city for a more favored
locality, and tlits^e ■■millions" invested in
great properties would vanish.
We must not fancy that the ruin of I hat
lakeport city is a mere supposition. Millions are frequently scattered in t hat-
fashion in the great warfare of .speculation^ The great bulk of American "millions" is, today, not money, but properly.
Property litis no intrinsic value. Il is
not necessarily worth even what it cost.
It is valuable i'n proportion t.o its earning
capacity. The millionaires of the I'nited
States have no assurance of safely I'm-ihe
future, except in building up from below.
I,el population fa ke rootand stay in outplace. Capital must not travel loo far
away from home.    The   waste-plares 011I-
.    (ireaf cities, siiii-
properly, grow by
lint to the waste-place
stautinl millions, real
accretion.
'On the other hand, now cities, new enterprises, whose foundations are solidly
laid in natural resources, energy and reasonable prospects, should not bo lightly
abandoned.
Confidence,   fair dealing,  a   permanent
population   in   their  own   home
