THE MINERS'"
LABOR   LEADERS  DENOUNCE  HON.   JOSEPH   MARTIN.
Working Miners of Nanaimo Appeal to Kootenay Hiners to Stand By Them in
Their Fight for Their Homes and Their Daily Bread—They Fear
Martin's Lust for Vengeance, and Seek Aid Against Him
and His " Political Tricksters."
Lhsi Monday night Mr, Ralph Smith,
bt Nanaimo, who is President of the
Trades and Lahor Council of Canada,
and Messrs, W. Woodman and .1. II.
Hawthornethwalte, also active lahor
union men of Nanaimo, addressed a
very numerously attended meeting of
electors at Nelson where Ihey are reported to have expressed themselves
in uncompromising i arms of opposition
to linn. Joseph Martin and his asso-
dales. The Nelson "Trihhne" published a lengthy report of the speeches
of two of those gentlemen, the following extracts from which will no doubt
prove of interest at this juncture to
numerous readeis of This AOVANOE
MARTIN VOTED AGAINST THK
PROTECTION OF THE COAL
MINI5RS.
"Mr. Smith snid there were two
other matters in connection with Mr,
Martin to which he wished to refer
The Hrst was Mnrlin's aclion in going
against the Coal Mines Regulation hill.
Tlie object of this measure, aseveryotic
knew, was to make it impossible foi
Chinese or Japanese to get Into the
coal mines. What action had Mr.
Martin, Ihe fiiend of the worklngman,
tn ken—the man lhat posed ns I lie
philanthropist and savlonrof the cause
of lhe masses? Because of his spiti*
against the Government he mude a
contract wiih James Dunsmuii' for the
purpose of bringing about the defeal
of the Government, and voted agninst
a measure passed for the protection of
ihe coal miners o f Vancouver Island,
Mr, Smith added : I do not care i snap
aliout a man's theories, if 1 ktiovv.thnt
yesterday the man did something eon-
ttary to those theories. The man then
must perform the aclion hefore I will
have any confidence in him, Tbis was
the position which Premier Merlin
occupied."
THE RE-DISTRIBUTION RILL AND
MARTIN'S BROKEN PLEDGES.
"The olher matter to which he (Mr.
Smith) desired to refer was Martin's
action wilh respect to the redistribution bill, Martin had stated upon
the plalfofin in Nanaimo aad upon the
Hoor of the Ilntise lhat if the. Government brought in any kind of a redistribution bill be would supporl it. The
Government brought In the measure,
Mr, Martih bad repeatedly staled that
he would support any kind of a redistribution bill ; what did ho do ? He
voted against that same bill. Not only
did he vote against ft measure
which he was pledged to support, bul
he voted against it to the destruction
of the Government. Is ihat Ihe kind
ofa man we can have confidence in 'i
If a man put hlshand into my pocket
and pick out a $2(1 hill to-day 1 will
wai oh him to-morrow. If afterwards
he give me an affidavit lhat, he is
honest I will not believe him. WhyV
Because that $3) sticks In niy crop.
Mr. Martin knew lhat he had done
wrong, hut he desired if possihle tu do
wrong logically,"
MARTIN'S      CONTRACT      WITH
DUNSMUIR TO  DEI'EAT THE
SEMLIN GOVERNMENT,
Speaking of the imported intended
coalition, Mr, Smith said : "Now Mr.
Martin says il was because of this
alliance lietween the Semlin Govern
ment and lhe Turner Opposition that
he voted against. Ihe redistribution
bill, He met Mr, James Dunsmuir,
previous to the meeting of the House
in Mr. Diinsinuir's nllioe, and be made
a contract with him. 1 know lhat 1
am telling the Irulh. He went to
Diinsinuir's nfflceand said to Mr.Duus-
niuir : 'Now you nnd I agree on one
thing; that the piesent Government
are no good. You and I will enter info
a -..contract to knock them out,' That
was cheap business for Mr. Dunsmuii.
and Mr, Martin entered into this contract with Mr. Dunsmuir to defeat the
Government. There was at this lime
something in lhe air about, conhllon,
Mr. Martin, however, snid these men
are making an unholy alliance. How
anxious be was to fulfil his conlrnct
witli James Dunsmuir and how little
he cured for his contract with Mr.
Kellie and bis pledges to support the
redistribution bill."
Again Mr. Smith snid : Joseph Mill-
tin, sitting ns the hillance of power,
taught me the lesson uf a lifetime,   I
contend that If nn Individual for the
mere sake of his own personal
ends and vengeance, can exercise
such authority in the Legislature
us to hnve the Governiuenl, nt his mercy, then we should have our own labor
representatives there in somewhat the
snine position.
MARTIN AND THE "WORLD" OPPOSED   TO   TIIE   LABOR
MOVEMENT,
Mr. lljiwlluirnelhwaite said he
"would like to draw the attention of
the Union men of Nelson lo the altitude of the Government orgnn, Ihe
Vancouver Win Id, to the.labor movement. Its edition nf Ihe Hlthconiained
a column of vilification, Ralph Smith
was licensed of being a creatine uf the
New Vancouver Coal Company, Mr.
Woodman of being a creature of Ralph
Smith, and he, the speaker, was accused of the crime of having concealed
about his person that dangerous commodity known as brains. So far as
Mr. Smith was concerned he would inform the audience lhat he was not an
employee in any sense of the company
named, hul. was the pnid servant of
the Miners' Union of Nanaimo. Tb"
"World" evidenced the true feeling of
Hot), Joseph Martin's Government, to
the independent labor movement; and
the recent action of (he Vancouver
Unions showed lbe feeling of tbe Irue
labor men on the Const to lhat Government; for, at the uieeting held Inst
week In that city, at, which 160 delegates were present, representing 3!)
unions, only four votes were cast, in
favor of Miirl.'o.'ls.ni as again. M* -nuance cast in favor of the independent
labor movement.
Referring lo Mr. Martin's aclion in
issuing a writ agninst lhe New Vancouver Coal Company for the return of
the letters patent issued by the Semlin Government as a confirmatory
title, which be staled did not grant the
cotupanj one additional acre of land,
iu fact ii curtailed and limited the
utidcr-lhc-sea area claimed by lhe
company, Mr. Hawthornethwalte
snid: "Where did the steal come in
that Hnn,Joseph Martin was irying
to   make  political   capital   out   of ?
MARTIN'S IGNORANCE OR WILFUL MISSTATEMENT OF PACTS.
The very lands under the sen, that Ihis
man in hisignorance or wilful misstatement of Ihe fads said were a new
steal, contained over twenty miles of
underground workings, nnd thousands
of yards of abandoned workings and
levels, allot which facts had been in
the possession of unfriendly governments for a decade, and the plans of
said winkings hnd been in the hands
of I he Government officials, and constantly examined and repotted on hy
the inspectors of those governments.
The operations of the New Vancouver
Coal Company were large. Last yenr
it paid oui in wages something in the
neighborhood of a million dollars, As
a company il wns a most liberal one
1.0 its employees, It hnd for years an
eight-hour day in its mines, ll pnid
ihe highest wage of almost any oorpo-
rntion nn the PaclHc Coast, nnd fnrllier did not employ in its extensive
mines nsingleJnpnrChinninaii. This,
too, io the teeth of keen competition
and in "pile of the fact thnt its competitors in the neighborhood employed
hundreds, indeed thousands, of Mon
golinn coolies. Tliis conipnny hnd conferred one benefit upon the miners of
British Columbia because it had established the fact beyond dispute that
while labor, intelligently directed and
well pnid, could successfully compete
ngnitisl any form of Oriental labor,
Chinese or Japanese,
MR. MARTIN'S ACTION RISKED
THROWING l.'-OO MINERS OUT
OK WORK.
Besides issuing n w ril,against I he company tor the retui nol' the let tors patent,
he had also I ried lo obtain nn injiitu turn
preventing the miners going on with
their work, Now this is the part of
tlm affair thnt brings lo Mr. Martin
most discredit. He Inula right, it mny
he supposed, to tiring hisaclion ngniiisf
the company, if he so desired, hut In
the Interests of justice, on nnv other
interests heyond personal revenge, he
had no right to apply for an injunction
restraining Ihnl unfortunate body of
miners,some twelve bnnil"ed in numbers, from puisuing their daily uvo-
cniion and obtaining their livelihood,
and bis action in tliis respect can never
be defended."
Willi regard to the Eight-hour law
Mr. Hawthornethwalte reminded his
hearers that Mr. Martin wns not always the ardent champion of the law
which, upon the eve of an election, lie
desired the working miners of Kootenay to believe he wns. When the Eight-
hour law was [inssed by tbe Semlin
Governnieiil,,tbere was some hesitation
with respect to its enforcement,. Owing to this a deputation went from
Vancouver to urge upon the Government the necessity of enforcing the
aw, To the members of this deputation what, did Mr. Martin sny? He
told them he iliil not believe in the
Eight-hour law, and thnt heneverdid
believe in il ; nnd thnl ns far as be wis
concerned he would never enforce It.
This was the same man who was posing ns the friend of tin- miners nod the
laboring men of this province,
A STRONG APPEAL TO FELLOW
WORKERS TO DEFEAT  MAK
TINANDHISSUPPORTHR-t
Mr. Hawthornethwalte closed ins
remarks with possibly tie- strongest
plea which one wage-earner could mak i
to another for the rejection of tee
common enemy, He said that the
working miners of Nan ou i feared
that if returned to power .bis, p!i Martin would gratify his lust for vengeance ; that If he were. fMreeasf ill he
would close i';i, collipriii oi tbe New
Vancouver Coal Compil"v*j. Tilftffora
the working miners of Nanaimo appealed to the miner-' aild Union men of
Nelson and Kootenay to stand by them
in such a crisis. They appealed to the
miners especially because they were
men who themselves daily faced a
common danger nnd death, men whose
kinship in danger should cjiuse them
to lend a willing ear to such an appeal.
The. miners of Nanainio appealed to
the miners of Kootenay, in the hour of
their present 11 ial, to stand by them in
their light for their homes and their
dally bread, and see to ii that hy no
action of theirs iliil Hon. Joseph Mar*
tin or nny of his politicnl tricksters
llllye it iu their power to wreck their
homes mul their ue nn-j of livelihood.
MARTIN'S SUPPORTERS RECEIVED A RUDE SHOCK.
The "Tribune" made the following
comment on the speeches quoted from :
Joseph Martin's worshippers received
a rude shock on Monday evening when
Ralph Smith, the labor leader, and .1.
II. Hawthornethwalte of N'unniino laid
hiire the motives which hnd been the
governing forces in Jir. Martin's career
for the past few months. The report
is a simple narrative, but it exposes
the hypocrisy of Premier Miirtin. lt
shows him in tbi' light ofa man who
In order to gratify personal vengeance,
nnd spite did not scruple at attempting
to throw l,2l'*u while miners out of
employment-, and cause them to forfeit
whal little tbey had gathered together
ns the result of iiiiinv years of toil. An
Interesting sidelight was also thrown
upon Mr. Mnrlin's posilion on thc
eight-hour law. li demonstrated tbat
instead of Mr. Martin lieing tbe friend
of tbe eight-hour law in the stormy
dnys which followed ils enactment,
Mr. Martin expressed himself as oppos.

never enforce it.
It said fnrllier: 11 sholild reqplreno

I''or this success I hunks are due alike
to the willing workers and Ihe numer-

and they nru hereby cordially tendered
to them.
Wfl commend to Ihe earnest attention of all miners nnd olher workers,

Messrs. Ralph Smith and .). H. Haw*

Strongly urge individual members of
the affiliated'unions forming the dis.
I ri t Trades and Lahor Council to re*
spoiid to their co-workers' appeal for
help iu defeating Martinism. And the
only way they can do this is by using
tie ir Votes and influence in favor of
Mr. Mackintosh and against Mr. Smith
Curtis.
In another column mention is made
of the intended early departure from
Oamp McKinney of Mr. J. P. Keane,
who for several years has been in
Charge of mbiing and r.iilling operations ut the (jkrlhoo mine. The loss of
a thoroughly competent aud trust-
worth) man is always to be sincerely
regretted, no mutter in what useful
occupation his energies have been employed. In mining in comparatively
undeveloped districts though, and
more particularly in a camp where
success hns only been achieved in an
appreciable degree in one mine, such
hiss is Um greater. Gamp McKinney
lias for several years "'-joyed the distinction of possessing the only milling
gold quartz mine iu lhe Province that
has pnid dividends, and much of the
profit lhat has been derived from its
operations has lieen mude during Mr
Keane's connection with the mine.
Had the development of this mine to
its presmil dividend-paying condition
been nil plain sailing there would still
ho occasion for regretful reference to
Mr. Keane's departure, but since tlie
initio has experienced vicissitudes, has
encountered perplexing mining problems, and, too, has iu earlier days hud
tu he worked under llnaiioially*restrict-
oil conditions, there is greater reason
now that its successful future seems
•tssnred for reluctance and regret in
bidding adieu to lhe man who was at
the helm whilst it was passing through
1 roiihled waters. We feel that wo are
voicing the sentiments of those among
whom for year.-, he has lived und labored when we pay this puhlic tribute to
his worth, and express tbo earnest
hope that in his new sphere of work a
liki' active exercise of his ability and
I rgy will bring to him the substutr
ti.ii reward he merits.

si qiicntly he instructed the bank nol
to pay Ibe money and called the ileal

Ihe matter hy saying thut he hud not
mentioned the Sunset, but hie prevail*
cation was quite evident to the audience, which unhesitatingly accepted
Mr. Mackintosh's straightforward
statement of the fact of Ihe case,
As yet only one New York mining
company is operating in ihe Boundary
Creek disliicl. It has opened up the
big Mot lier Lode mine and is now
creeling a smelter nenr Greenwood,
These have to dale involved un ex
penditure of ahoul $2j(),0tX\ with more
to follow, Itis an open secret, thnl
ilie cnpilulisls who established these
enterprises had prepared lo launch
another mining company but had to
stay their baud, present conditions
being unfavorable, In view of ihis
fact the following, taken from a Provincial exchange will just now he read
wiih interest. Colonel E. S. Topping!
formerly of Tiail, recently returned
from New York City, where he went
in an endeavor to inteiest Easterners
in Briiish Columbia properties, "But
there was no money there for British
Columbia," saidjhe "I saw a numher of
prominent moneyed men, all of whom
expressed themselves ns satisfied thnt
the propositions wete all right, hut
they wert. afraid lo let go of tbeir
money, They were perfectly willing
to invest in Ihe Western Suites, hut
us one of them said : "British Columbia is all light when it is governed
properly. Get a good stable government and iu a few years you will find
money Honing into your Province
from everwhere.' That's all I got,good
advice but no money," And yet there
ure men in this district, even with
such a striking object lesson before
Iheir eyes, so blind to the hest interests of the mining industry us to support Marliiiisiu und unstable government. But fortunately their eyes are
being opened lo the gravity of the
situation and to the urgent, necessity
there exists for them to do their part
lowards restoring confidence by voting
for Mackintosh, who will attract the
much needed capital, not drive it
away.

At la-t Wednesday night's public
nieeling In Greenwood two attempts
were made lo besmirch tbe fair name
nf Hon. C. II, Mackintosh, but in
neither case could the mud he mude
to slick. Mr. J. II. Matfarlaue, u
".unions Martinite, essayed the first
attempt. To his question intended to
convey the idea that Mr. Mackintosh
had beep a party to defrauding men
iniployo.l on th* Gatlneau Railway
nut of their wages, lie ivceivu-1 tlm emphatic reply, "never," "Yes yon were"
persisted ihe inud-slingcr, "and 1 ran

'•No you can't" was the laconic re'
spun so he elicited, and Ibe crowd
cheerad Mr, Mackintosh, who after
wards explained that as Mayor of Ottawa he was ex-officio a director ot the
railway conipnny referred to, Hiscon.
Heel ion with It, however, nearly ruined
)ilin financially, for not only did he
never in.ike a cent oul nf it, Init it cost
him $21,500 nl' bis own private moneys.
If Ibe conipnny nilerwmils made a

After a very successful visit, extending over several days, to (irand Forks
nnd Ooiumbia, where he held very
largely attended meetings, Hon. C. H.
Mackintosh last Tuesday came on to
the Boundary Creek section of tlie
riding. His Greenwood committee
had decided that there should uot be
any demonstration of welcome made
on his arrival at Greenwood, so he
was met at the station by only Acting-
Mayor Sutherland and Mr. Jas. Kerr,
chairman of the committee. Mr.
Mackintosh was accompanied by Major Goodeve, and they were driven to
the Windsor Hotel, which they made
their headquarters throughout the
week, On Tuesday evening they were
present at a meeting of the executive
committee. On Wednesday night a
public meeting was held in the Alhum-
bia Theatre, which was crowded to
the doors.
The chair was taken by Acting-Mayor Sutherland,   lt had previously been
arranged that Hon. Mr. Mackintosh
should speak first, then Hon. Smith
Curtis his opponent, and then after
Mr. Mackintosh hnd briefly replied Ml"
Goodeve   should   make   the  closing
speech,   On rising to address the large
audience Mr. Mackintosh  was given
AN ENTHUSIASTIC RECEPTION.
He  I bunked  the electors fur their
cordial  greeting,  and admitted  that
whilst be hud previously heirrd much
of the Boundary district it certainly
was a revelation to him upon tbis bis
lirst visit to it,   Turning to the object
of their meeting Hint night he observed
that they had quite recently rejoiced
upon the rebel of Mafeking—well, on
June I) be and other supporters of good
guVernineiit were coming to the. relief
of British Columbia, which at present
was oppressed hy one of the  worst
governments it had ever ha.1.    His
opponents bud asked what his platform
was,   He had published an address to
tho electors whioh contained his platform.   Tbe first aud most, important
plank of those who lmd at heart the
est Intel ests of the Province was the
h feat of the government of the Hon
loseph Martin.   There were plenty of
good men avail ilile for the Government of th-' province, so their services
should be availed of.
Mr. Kerr, speaklngat Grand Porks
is representa'lve of Mr, ('unis, lmd
..id lint there were three leading
questloll-i to be considered, via. ihe
i<elHe River Va ley Railway, Chinese
nml Japanese iniiulgradon, nnd lie-
Eight-hour law. There was, too, lhe
question of lv-i)i„liiliiil.ioi> which especially nlfects the Boundary cotmiiy.
This large dislrict certainly should
hive its own representative, Mr.
Curl is had said he would endeavor to
give the dislrict us own member in
1001 and his chief, Mr. Martin, hud
named 1002. Speaking for himself, he
would urge the passing uf a te-div
iribulion measure at the earliest possible time, without unnecessary delay
lo give ihis ill-liiet ihe representation
il should have.
Mr. Curtis und his supporters had
represented him as opposed to working
men. If they could prove that be had
lieen he would retire frnui thisoonlest.
On tho contrary he could show lhat
FOR 25 YEARS
be lmd heen as sl might forward wilh
the working classes of Canada as had
ever been uny man in public life, He
held in his baud documentary evidence
from proinineiuint labor men In the
East (wbich he rend) which proved
that it was utterly untrue to say that
be was l ho enem y of labor, And t hey
would find lhat if he were for 20 years
their representative he wonld have a
similar record to that he bad given
Ihem. Mr. Martin and his supporters
seemed to claim that the Eight-hour
law was something new, yet it had
been in force many yenrs in olher
countries thut he named. Sn fur from
being opposed to it the recent settlement of the Inhnrdifflculty in Rossland
bad been made by Measrs.Ra.lph Smith
and R. 0, Clute upon the lines laid
down in hia own letter previously published in the Rossland "Miner", He
had heen and still was in favor of the
Eight-hour law.
In regard to Oriental labor he advocated paying standard wages in (he
best skilled labor. If (here were a
legal stundaid wage I he Chinese would
be excluded from the mines, for mine-
owners would find Ihnt it, would not
pny them lo give Chinese high wages,
Whilst be admired Japan as a nation,
he
OBJECTED TO JAPANESE
competing with the working men of
Briiish Columbia.
As to slate-owned railways, he was
not, opposed to the principle, hut he
hud asked his opponents to act can-
tiouly before incurring such a large
expenditure as the const ruction of even
the Coast-Midway railway alone would
involve, If ihey borrowed $20,000,000
that would mean taxation (o (he extent of $1,000,000, nnd that with a
revenue of only $1,500,000, The present debt of the Province is ahoul $17
per head for every man woman and
child in it, hut the carrying out of the
proposals of Ihe Martin Government
would increase it to $150 per head.
They should rather spend more money
on roads, bridges aod (rails ; in aid tn
Provincial hospitals and in assisting in
every way they could to open up the
mines of the country.
Reverting to Ihe Eight hour law, he
bud Ihut dny rcceivedatelegraui which
proved that earlier Mr. Martin had admitted to Messrs, Ralph Smith, Mc
Phersnn nnd others that he did not believe in that law, He concluded by
asking for the support of the electors,
assuring both working classes nnd
husiness men that they wonld find in
him
A FAIR REPRESENTATIVE
and one who would do his best to give
them their own representative for the
Boundary country,
Hon. Smith Cutis, who followed,
said that Mr. Mackintosh had not
shown that Ihe Martin Government
was the worst the Province had ever
had. He claimed on the ront.niry.thal
the adminstration nf the several departments had been better attended to
hy il than ever before. Mr. Mackintosh had not told Ihem who his leader
was, nor what, was his platform, except the one plank to defeat Ihe Martin Government. Nor had he any
party pledged to support him in Ihe
Legislature if he were ret iirned. He
(the speaker) defended Mr. Martin's
action in voting against, the Semlin
Government's re distribution measure
which he asserted ihal government
never intended lo cairy through. Tne
present, government had brought,
about the settlement oi (he labor
difficulties at Rossland, and if it were
sustained at the forthcoming election
the Eight-hour question would he
settled for ever. If they elected bim
on J une 0 he would go lo the Legislature as much a labor as a Government candidate. He referred lo tbe
proposed railway to Midway the out
side cost of which would be $7,6(10,0(10
or $8,000,000. If Ihis railway were
buill. Ihey could send the products of
Iheir mines to Ihe coast where a re
finery would he built. During his
remarks he said that Mr. Mackintosh
had undertaken to '(black-eye" a cer
tain property in theSiniilkiiineen. In
reply Mr, Mackintosh explained that
he had placed $40,000 iu the bank to
purchase the Sunset, the properly referred to, but. the deeds of it were
never lodged in the bank as agreed,
so he railed t lie deal off.   He
CREATED A SENSATION
hy staling that he hnd previously re
ceived noliee from Mr. It. A. Brown,
(he seller, assigning all bis interest in
Ilie $40,000 to Messrs. Joseph Martin
and Smith Curtis, which made the
transaction seem to him to have a suspicious appearance,
M". Goodeve spoke for an hour,
scoring Mr. Curtis severely, making
point after point uguiusl him and
thereby doing effective work in favor
of M'. Mackintosh, The meeting
closed nt midnight by singing "God
Save the Queen,"
W,, first   saw light in  Canada,  the
land beloved of God,
We nre the pulse of Canada, its marrow and its blood.
And we, Ihe men of Canada, can face
the world and brag,
Thut we were born iu Canada, beneath
the Blilish flag.
Few of us have the blood of kings, few
nre of courtly birth,
But few are vagabonds or rogues of
doubtful name and worth.
And nil huve our credentials Ihal entitles us to brag
For we were horn in Canada, beneath
Ihe Briiish Hag.
We've yet, to mak" our money, we've
yet to make our fame,
But we bave gold and glory in
clean colonial name;
And every man's a millionaire if only
he can brig.      _..■■.        ,.
That he was horn in Canada beneath
(he British Flag.
No title and no  coronet   is half  us
proudly worn.
As that which we inherited  as men.
Canadian horn,
We count i nn so noble as the one
who makes the brng
That he was born in Canada beneath
tbe British Flag.
The  Dutch may have   his Holland,
the Spaniard have his Spain.
The Yankee tothe  south of us must
south of us remain ;
For nol a man date lift, a hand against
the men who brag
That they were  hum in Canada be

On Tuesday, 22nd inst., Mr, 0. 13.
McAulay returned fiom a visil tothe
Cariboo mine, Camp McKinney. He
was accompanied by the mine superintendent! Mr. ,1. P. Keane. and they
brought with them for shipment to

gold was-deposited with t!i" Hank of

afternoon train.
Mr. McAulay hud very little losay
about the mine beyond thin it continues to look well and that its prospects
are of an in roasingly satisfactory nature. Mr. Keene was asked whether,
us had heen reported, he lmd Designed
his appointment of superintendent,

that he would return to the mine for a

The Trade Outlook.

Everything Passed Off Successfully,
and the Big Crowd Thorough'
ly Enjoyed Themselves,
Midway was favored with real
"Queen's weather" for its celebration
on May 21th, Queen's Birthday. As a
consequence the crowd that assembled
to witness the sports and tako part in
the general pleasure making that the
day had heen given np to was the largest ever seen in tbis highly favored
part of the Keitle Hiver Valley. The
Committee had worked with a will to
ensure success, and having met with a
liberal response to their appeal for
funds hud heen able to arrange a
varied and attractive programme of
sports. There were several features
not previously included in local celebrations. Chief among these wore
bicycle races, a buck-jumping exhibition, and the rendering of a number of
musical selections by the Greenwood
Brass Hand, this last pleasantly relieving what might otherwise have
been the tedlousness of waiting between the different events on the
programme.
Visitors began to arrive early, and
they were delighted with the town,
gaily and profusely decorated with
Hags and tri-colored streamers and fes-
toons, and looking hriglitand beautiful
with its attractive immediate surroundings of grassy plain and its setting of
green and timbered bills, lho shaded
hanks of Ketlle Itiver tempted some,
and a few tried their luck at Ashing,
lint the main inlerest centred in the
sports grntind where I lie largo "grand
stand" wns crowded chiefly with ladies
and children, whilst the men crowded
around the winning post nr any other
point, of especial inlerest. There were
several booths on tbe ground wbich
did n good business in fruit, candies
and other light refreshments, and
dnwn town the hotels wero kept busy
throughout the day. Some enterprising individuals front Greenwood had
arranged for a glove contest between
two good boxers, but the''house" of
150 wbo paid the admission fee to the
enclosure was considered loo small,
so the "fight" was declared otf and the
money returned to the disappointed
lovers of this class of sport. In the
evening a ball was held at the Oakland
Hotel. This was well attended and
very enjoyable. There was no other
public function at night, so most of
the holiday makers got home in good
time, leaving but few to continue celebrating until tlie early hours of the
following morning,
