THE     POLLARDS     IN     "WIDOW
O'BRIEN."
Once upon a time a man who ' insisted that there was no comic opera
like the comic opera ot his youth was
fortunate, or unfortunate, enough to
sec thc revival of a musical piece ot
tlie vintage of the seventies. His
delusions vanished at once. He
tound what he had considered as
brilliant wit a poor sort ot jokes,
the music intolerably silly, and the
situations a great deal more absurd
than humorous. Bearing this gin-
happy person in mind it was with
some trepidation that he went up to
the opera house last evening to see
thc Pollards in "Widow O'Brien."
Wasn't it the Yokes, that versatile
family of cornelians of liotb sexes,
who used to potior :i this larCu     *.;i
lice whatever he made to fit tbe term
lilliputian. Teddy McNamara. Eva
Moore, Willie Pollard, Jack Pollard,
and a number of other names familiar
to opera house patrons were on last
night's programme, and the young
favorites showed that notwithstanding they had lost the appeal ot extreme youth, they were quite equal
to the occasion, and were now to be
judged ou their own merits as real
performers. Certainly the large
aadience last night returned as enthusiastic a verdict in favor o! tbe
Pallard graduates as it ever did for
tlie Pollard youngsters. Eva Moore
made a charming leading lady, and
both sang and danced delightfully,
while Adn Hind was as pretty as a
picture. The version of the Merry
Widow waltz, given by Miss Hind
and    Mr. McNamara ought certainly
ALFRED GOULDING AS "WIDOW O'BRIEN."
crowded houses nUbt *tler night"?
And was the fun put there by the
Yokes or was lt inherent to tiie
piece? And It tbe latter one asked
one's self, could the Pollard youngsters put it there? Frankly lt must
be admitted that thc young people
who have Just emerged from thc juvenile company did not mako the same
kind of fun as their eminent predecessors. Thev did possibly something
better. Thev invented their own
tun and tho Bristol wns as lively a
ship as ever. Moreover they embroidered the farce with catchy
songs and pretty dances. Tho eompnny which appeared last night 1b
composed of a number ot tbe bright,
particular stars, ot tbe Juvenile companies which bave appeared in this
cltr so frequently In recent years,
but who can no longer by any arti-
to be seen to be appreciated. It ls
a sort of delicious foretaste ot what
one may expect from the principals
ot the more important company,
and doesn't taste a bit like it either. Mr. Alfred Gouldlng handled the
skirts of Widow O'Brien with consummate grace, and her accent with
some more of the same. Jack Pollard put just the right touch of burlesque Into his Count Menagoirrc,
and Eva Pollard's colored girl was as
black as she was painted, and as
funny as she was black. Charles
Chester filled out the role of Captain
Cranberry with credit to himself and
tlw company is to be congratulated
upon giving'such a creditable production.
Thc Pollards will bold tin boards
at tbe Auditorium Saturday nnd
Monday, July 10th Md Wth.
COAL STRIKE ENDED
(Kcrnie Free Press.)
The strike is ctuleil. By what
amounts to a practically unanimous
vote the miners ol the district voted
to return to work ou the basis ot the
settlement recommended by thc Conciliation Hoard. In some ot the
camps not a single vote was east tor
a continuance of tin* strike. Most* ol
the mines opened again today.
To Mie painstaking antl patient el-
forts of thc Arbitration Board and
to the sound judgment nt William
Powell, president ol District No. 1,
I'.MAY. ol A., is largely due the cessation of hostilities today. Much
satisfaction is expressed on all sides
that tla- costly ami absurd struggle is
ended. It will he some time lieforc
lbe liiilies ure working to their capacity and there will slill he considerable distress before the next payday, which is still more than forty
days distant.
The agreement is dated April 1,
lllllll, anil will be in lorec Ior twu
years.
AN OLD FRIEND.
A certain Mr. Williams, alias
Smith, alias Drown, etc., was being
introduced around to various ol
Enie Small's friends thc other evening. He had a Van llyke beard ol
the color and hue ol a red brick and
the texture ol Manilla hemp. No
one knew him. He looked like a
prospector. Some sai-d he looked
like HI. Maybe he did. But he
played the game low down on his
Iriends. Mr. Wllliams-Sinith-Brown
turned out to be Fred W. Reeves,
late ol the Cosmopolitan hotel, who
has been out on one of thc C.P.R.
survey parties since last February.
He got a scries ol photographs to be
called "Belore and Alter," to illustrate tho diflerence that a wisp of
hair on a man's chin can make. Witb
it and an old black hat he was very
much "Before," but when the barber had got in his work on him (and
it was work, all right) he was the
cheery Fred., ami the lilies ol the
Held are not arrayed like unto him.

WHAT PRINCE RUPERT WILL DE
(Prince Rupert Empire.)
Let it lie known Irom tbe -housetops that Prince Rupert is to he a
widc-opcii town, In whieh liquor-
selling, gambling, prostitution and
thieving can be carried on without
restrictions. Let there be no more
manifestoes issued that Prince Rupert is a town lor wllito men and
women. Tell the Jap and thc
Chink and the Hindu that they will
be welcomed as competitors in the
industries they have Invaded in other
towns and cities on the Pacific coast.
Prince Rupert cannot lie made white
by a Wnrkingmen's Association that
is spineless or by a Board ol Trade
that is moribund. Prince Rupert
cannot be made decent, when provincial officials appointed to see that
laws are observed allow the big and
Influential to break tho laws with
Impunity, while they hunt down and
punish the weak. Public opinion
cannot bo created when preachers,
lawyers, doctors and husiness men
deem it a duty to apply coats ot
whitewash to Inefficient constables
and other officials. There can he no
public opinion In a town dominated
by men who are in sympathy with
law-breaking, and Prince Rupert ls
dominated today by men who are
willing to surrender principle (or dollars, no matter how tbe dollars are
made. A healthy public opinion oan
only bo formed once ttie public are
driven to realize that crime
is crime when committed hy provincial officials as much as when committed by men who would rather he
criminals than honest. Let Prince
Rupert be another Skagway. Let
criminals have a tree hand. There
will he a change lor the better whe*
the people realize how had they really
are, not belore. Let smug hypocrisy
be unmasked."
DROWNED AT FERNIE
(Kernie Free Press.)
'Hie Klk claimed another victim on
Monday night. Tlie tragedy occurred some time after midnight -
Itnbt. Redhead, Geo. Wilde and William .Jones were out late that night
and were going home across the Elk
bridge about one o'clock. Tlicy hatl
been drinking moderately in the
evening.
flossing the bridge Redhead was
walking ahead, when he heard Wilde
exclaim, "Billy's gone Into the
river'" As Redhead turned back
Wilde threw o(T bis coat and plunged
into the turbid waters of the
river after bis friend. Redhead
walked around the end ot the bridge
and down the north shore where be
found Wilde on the gravel bar abovo
the breakwater. No trace was
rouiKl of Jones, although the hanks
were searched on both sides lor some
distance down. |
If Jones leaped head first into tbe
water it is quite possible that be
may have been stunned or mav huve1
broken bis neck on the bottom and
lloatcd down the stream -inert. He
was a married man and leaves a wile
and three children.
Many conflicting rumors are in circulation with regard to the occurrence ami it is probable that an investigation will he made into the circumstances of the tragedy.

AN OLD CRANBROOK BOY
"Tommy" Gallon, formerly with
tbu Imperial Bank of Canada of this
city, and.for some time past with
the branch at Athabasca Landing,
lias left that place to go to Golden
aud since has been transferred to
Fernie as accountant in thc branch
just opened there by tbe Imperial
Bank. "Tommy" evidently made
himself as popular up in the north
as lie did in Cranhrook, as the following account of a farewell banquet
given him, from thc Northern News,
published at Athabasca Lauding,
shows:
On Tuesday night about thirty ot
the "boys" and older members of the
community met iu the spacious dining room of the Grand Union hotel
to do honor to Mr. T. H. Gallon, ol
Die Imperial Bank, arid incidentally
to do justice to a sumptuous banquet provided by Mr, Bert'&ml Ior
tbe occasion. After the major part
of the good things had been stowed
away, the chairman, Mr. James 11.
Wood, called on Father Beaudry for a
speech. The Father expressed very
appropriately his admiration of Mr.
Gallon and his regret at his departure, aud concluded by wishing biro
success in his new position in Golden„
British Columbia. Numerous other
speeches were made by various members of the company, all expressive of
regret at Mr. Gallon's departure and
wishing him success in his new
sphere. Songs were rendered by a
few of the guests rand with the drinking of several toasts made the evening slip rapidly past. The chairman
then made a neat little speech, at the
conclusion of which he presented Mr.
Gallon with a monetary present as a
token of esteem Irom his many Iriends
in the Landing. Mr. Gallon suitably
replied, expressing his regret at leaving the many friends which he bad
made during his two years stay in
the Landing. The singing of God
Save the King then ended the proceedings.

PRAIRIES ABSORB KOOTENAY
LUMBER
"Up-country sawmill men arc unanimous in reporting that tbe demand for lumber from the three
prairie provinces is stronger now
than at any previous period during
ihe past two years. Virtually
every mill is in operation and despite thc output, lumber stocks,
w11id) last -lanuary amounted to
about two hundred million feet, have
been reduced to about one hundred
and fifty million loot, With a good
crop harvested the improvement of
Conditions iu regard to the lumber
Industry next fall will be a yrtim-
ty. Prices are not showing any
tendency to increase."
This was tho way the lumber situ-
today by Mr. W. A. Anstie, secretary of the Mountain Sawmills1 Man-
alion in the Kootenays, was sized up
ulaeturiiig association in conversation with The Province at tho Hotel
Vancouver, Mr. Anstie bas just returned from a tour of the various
districts in thc interior. He acquainted himself with tacts at firsthand hy calling upon the various mill
owners.
He is also secretary of thc recently organized British Columbia Lumber Logging and Forestry association, embracing in its membership
nearly every interest identified with
the industry. Mr. Anstie also expressed himself as well satisfied with
the personnel of the provincial forestry commission, which will shortly
begin its labors. He added that thc
two associations will make known
its views to thc commission.

MAY BE ELECTION.
"The Provincial general elections
will take place this fall, probably in
October," was the statement ot one
of the prominent Boundary Conservatives, who is generally well informed
on matters connected with the local
government. Whether or not Premier McBride made this definite statement we are not prepared to say, hut
it was at least the general impression left with party friemls who had
been intimate with him during his
trip through tlie Boundary.
There has * been a general impression that the MeBride,government
would hold another session of parliament early next year and then go to
the electors, but it is understood the
recent Conservative convention at
Victoria advised an earlier appeal,
and tlie suggestion that the elections
be lield in October has found favor
with the heads ot thc different associations In the interior, with whom
tlw premier has discussed the situation since leaving on his tour. No
definite steps have yet been taken by
any of the local political associations, though it is believed they will

official announcement is made.—Phoenix Pioneer.

feature was tbat on tbe same day a

MEETING OF FARMEBS' INSTITUTE
The annual spring meeting ot the
Cranbrook-Fernie Farmers' institute
was held on Friday last, when a good
audience was present to hear the address from Mr. Mlddlcton, ol Vernon, and Mr. Baylis, oi Victoria.
The lecturers, who arrived in tho
city the previous day, made a
thorough exploration ot thc district,
and visited several ranches, and were
enthusiastic as to the quality ol the
sull and it's suitability lor garden
crops and Iruit culture.
Mr. Mlddlcton, who has lived in the
Okanagan district lor seventeen
years, staled that, with one possible
exception, the district around Cranbrnok contained a larger area ol
eultivatable land than any other in
East Kootenay, and whilst there had
lieen a certain amount ol winter killing, thc same had occurred In West
Kuotenav, hut where suitable varieties hail 'been planted, he lound them
iiuite hardy. He also remarked tbat
if suitable varieties arc planted Iruit
grown here will lie a credit to British Columbia, and that It would he
impossible to get a better Iruit soil.
Mr. Baylis, in advocating poultry
raising, stated that at the present
time the province is importing poultry- antl eggs annually to the value of
$1,50(1,00(1 from thc eastern provinces,
besides what is brought In Irom the
States, and called attention to tho
fact that thc demand Is strictly increasing. A hearty vote ot thanks
most interesting and instructive
to thc speakers concluded one of the
meetings yet held by the Institute.
Thc directors ol the Farmers' Institute have decided to offer to tho
Agricultural association, special
prizes to the amount of (70.00 to be
awarded as follows:
Best district exhibit ot vegetables,

FORTSTEELE£ELEBRATION
There are celebrations and celebrations, each with its own peculiar accent or flavor. None, however, have
i|iute the same savor and bouquet as
old Kort Steele, which stands out as
the one place in all tire Kootenays,
where the genuine, old-time warmth
and heartiness mingles with the gUt-
ler of our later time. On Dominion
day all the old timers, and thc
middle tuners aud the other day tim-
ors gathered to enjoy themselves at
horse lacing and all the rest of the
fun of the fair. Everybody knew
everybody else and if they didn't it
didn't mutter. They were out for a
good time and they got it. lt was a
huge family party—a picnic at which
tho whole country assembled. Lots
Ol people from Cranbrook, too. And
right well they seemed to enjoy
themselves in the splendid hospitality
extended them and crowds of others
by Tom McVittie and Mrs. McVittie
in the loveliest home in thc Kootonays. The day was scorching hot,
but Tom was provided with beverages
cooled for a long age iu the deep-
delved earth, thirsUaHaying, cooling
and peace producing. May his
shadow increase.
Who devised the decorations for Kort
Steele? Tbey were really most effective, pretty and entirely charming-
Cranbrook might well take notice and.
a lesson, too, iu this stvle ot decorations. ■ It was a blaze ot color, ever)
point and detail of which was brought
out by the brilliant sunlight. Thc
hotels were simply covered with flags,,
fronts, tops and sides, lt was
round these establishments that the
big crowds gathered, for all the races
were run on thc street in the true,
old time western style. Outside the
Imperial one old timer had a bunch
of two or three dollar bills ami insisted on laying "Forty dollars on
Wandering Nun. She'll win, mind
you, you blind-eyed son ot a centipede Forty dollars on Wandering
Nun. Who takes mc for forty dollars?" No one seemed to mind this
racing extravagance, and it was just
as well, since there was nothing ot
the name running. He was a wise
juy, more or less.
All the races were run in heats owing to the distances being in all
cases very short, six hundred yards
being the longest. Dr. Rutledge, ol
Cranbrook, officiated with the llag
at tbe starting post and a hot, har-:.
strenuous time of it lie had down
there in front of Carlin's store
whieh, by the way, used to be the
Hudson's Bav post in the early six-
tics, when all the gold was got out
of Wild Horse gulch. The judiciary
at tbe finishing end consisted of
Judge Joseph Ryan and Neil McCrimmon, of Cranbrook, and Colonel
Henderson, of Fort Steele. Tbey
too bad bard work all cut out tor
them, albeit their duties, now and
again, brought them convenient to
thc mansion of Tom McVittie, where
Die air was cooler. No appeals
were had from the decisions ot the
judges, and all went well in that regard. The 600 yard race appeared a
gift for Clover Leaf, but Actress, a
very nervous mare, won out after
losing the first heat to the former.
\. O. McKinstry's Wild Cat, a mare
showing a deal of quality and of tbe
very best manners, won tbe quarter
mile event for green saddle horses
and another event of the same distance in straight beats. Sbe was
ridden by young Smoke, of Cranbrook, who seemed to win all before
bim. Jimmy Sorrel won tbe Indian
race and was ridden by an Indian
boy who looked like a section ot a
rainbow, so brilliant were bis racing
colors of blue and pink. Smoke, riding Charley, won the Consolation
race for beaten horses. It was
worth $50.
What a picture the whole thing
made. Below the bench on wbich
the town sits Uie Kootenay rolled
along, log-laden, turbid, with a
deadly suggestion of its quiet but
enormous power. In the street tbe
ponies flashed along under the dags
and banners in the midst of a blur of
colors of tlie Indian women and the
pure whites of their whiter sisters.
The bars were packed with men bellowing ot the heroes of their idolatry, dead and buried a score and a
half of years ago, for Steele is old as
we count antiquity. Law and order
were in the hands of Joe Walsh and
Adney, ol the Eagle Eye from Wardner. They had nothing to do but
meet their friends, for peace and good
fellowship abounded.
The sun of that long day wheeled
itself along the south and up tbe
west till it sank in flames of saffron
and purple behind the grim old Selk-
irks. Looking track on Steele from
the hill top on the way home one
could not help thinking that an
opulent city should be down there
with a prosperity proportioned to thc
bigness of the "hearts of its people.
Hut its day will come, is coming,
and in the day that Steele shall leap
into its own no one will rejoice more

We do not attempt to compete In

There is a camp down Moyie way
where the young man in charge Is a
believer iu bis own shooting und also
in economy. The other day the man
who js responsible [or the camp
nunc hy aud hud a chat with the
cook, who snid he hated like anything to have to mention it, but be
bad to nsk for some fresh meat lor
tha men. The boss wondered why
be .sliould hate to ask for such a
reasonable matter and enquired, what
ailed bim, unyhow?
"It's like this boss," said thc
cook, "you see, our friend in charge
I old mc he'd keep the camp in fresh
meat with his death-dealing rifle.
That's what he called it. He'd
shoot deer, so he said, likewise bear
—when in season. Trifles like
grouSo ami so on would come when
he'd whistle. Well, thc other morning a deer rambled into cump and lie-
gan to nibble our nimrod on the lobe
of thc left ear. He got hold ol his
death-dealer and fired seven shots at
tho beast, which was moving round
him Vared wide-eyed. He missed
bim every time, and dealt out nary a
death. I asked him after tlie battle
was over whr he had failed thus
Ignomlnlotisly? He answered that
he was not responsible for the non-
destruction nt brutes that would not
stand still long enough to lie killed,
nnd, in any ease, he was not entirely sure but the appnrition was a
lucre hfllucjnatinn, or air drawn
figure of the Imagination."
Pondering the power ot the English
ns applied hy that cook the head
boss rode on ruminating on the joys
of life till n big mosquito drove bis
probe nn inch Into his spinal
column.
THE SECOND ANNUAL EXCURSION
OF THE CRANBROOK ALPINE
CLUB
On Wednesday evening fifty people
left the iMelbodist church iu rigs lut
thc base of Baker mountain, A
large freight wagon carried the numerous blankets and baskets, lbe ambulance outfit and medicine cases,
together with a complete outfit ol
mosquito destroyers. Mr. Steele, ul
whose ranch the parly disembarked,
saluted the advance guards with a
volley ot smoke from the numerous
smudges ho had prepared for emergencies. The freight committee got
to work aud soon bad every package
iu the right place, and the camp was
prepared for tho night. A lata supper was then served, u conceit held,
at whieb tho men Irom a neighboring
camp attended, a balloon was sent
up and al 11 p.m. the bugler sounded
tor prayers, and the camp retired to
rest. Tbe guards, who changed
every bom, kept good fires going
through lbe night, aud punctually at
three the leveille startled those who
bad boon protending to sleep, and
tbe camp was suou astir. Tbe water committee wus scarcely able to
copo with the demand, hut soon all
bad washed uud were ready for the
guod breakfast that bad been prepared. Shortly before breakfast was
finished the outposts were driven in
by a frontal attack by a large body
ol mosquitoes that were known to be
iu the vicinity of tho camp. Orders
were given for thc destroyer to bo
brought into-play, and all who were
loyal rubbed the solution on tbeir
bands, face and neck. This checked
the advance and allayed tbe fears
the ladies. Punctually at five the
loll was called for those who were
to climb the mountain. Ten ladies
and twenty-seven men responded and
these were soon swathed in mosquito
netting, leggings and good humor.
The bottles which the men carried
were a sight to heboid, but thev contained nothing but water or lemonade, as thc parly were going up ami
not down. At 5.16, the bugler
sounded the advance, and Dr. E. W.
Connolly with Charles Haker leading
the party, the happy thirty-seven left
the camp after affectionate farewells
and messages in case they should
never return. After six hours climb,
tbey reached the top, where the
Thermos bottles were opened and
iced drinks served by the doctor. Mr.
Ralph Raeklyeft discovered a package
on a tree at the summit hearing thc
arms of the ancient house of the Ra-
worths of Oxford. A message enclosed with a nice brooch stated that
tbis was to be presented to the first
lady who reached the top, and accordingly, Miss Kouk, ot the Palm,
now protidly wears the trophy.
Speeches were made at the presentation to which Miss Kouk suitably replied, and said she hoped that they
would soon all meet again under similar circumstances. After a rest ot
about two hours the party started
down again, having taken tlie reading
of tho barometer, wliich shewed the
altitude to be just upon 7UO0 feet
above sea level, or close upon 4000
cot above Craubrook. There were
several guns with the party, but
happily no blood was shed, save in
the matter of mosquitoes, who were
working overtime all day. The
camp was reached by the first parly
about live o'clock, and by the second
detachment, who brought In the
wounded, just before six. The medical department made special arrangements to serve hot tea through the
Thermos bottles toward the end ot
the trail, and this very materially
assisted a few weary ones to tbeir
desired haven. Mr. S. Peck was under arms all day at the camp, and
fought mosquitoes when lie was not
making smudges or waiting for u call
for the ambulance. One case was
sent to the temporary hospital and
others were treated as out-patients,
but no fatalities were reported, save
in the case of the mosquitoes, and
these suffered considerable loss, as
their attacks were very pointed. After a very hearty supper a concert
was held and a letter was read from
the Raworth Bros, to the effect that
they wished to present every lady
who had - reached the top with a
brooch. This was received by the
ladies with prolonged cheering, and
conscquehtly Messrs. Raworth Bros,
have been visited by the lollowing
ladies, who are now wearing their
souvenirs: Miss Dixon, Miss Child:
Miss Bourgoyne, Miss Crooks, Miss
(J. Macdonald, Miss Liedie Macdonald, of Wasa; Miss M. Hickenbotham,
Mrs. Shaw, Mrs. Edmonds, The
party arrived home about an hour
after midnight, . having had a thoroughly good time, save in the matter
of tho diligent mosquito. The ladies who stayed at the camp and prepared for the return of the others are
certainly worthy nf some medal, and
tlie committee of management should
take this Into consideration in the
near tuture. There was a prize ottered tor the best acrostic on the
mosquito, antl this was most ably
won bv Seymour Muir, who is an
authority on this animal. The effort
of Mr. Muir is us follows:
Mosquito,    have I    longer cause   to
swear?
Oh, vou "goshdarned'' nuisance I can
tee) you there!
Sav, don't have me to arise vou vil-
'   lain
U llcmon Ol all that Mies,
I'll get up and knock ynu between the
eves.
To do this I may have to insert   my
fist,
Over that drill which vou turn   and
twist.
Tbe following ladies were with the
party iu addition to those who
climbed tlio mountain: Miss Chapman, Mrs. Hayward, Miss Hickenbotham, Mrs. Nesbitt, Mrs. Powell,
tbe Misses Hodnett, Miss Clyde, Miss
Connolly, Mrs. Grevett, Mrs. Fowler,
Mrs. Hughes, and Mrs. Macdonald.
Tbe following is a full list of the
gentlemen, all of whom climbed to
tbe top, save Mr. Peck, who assisted
iu the camp and ted the mosquitoes:

CROWDS AT THE BIG FAIR.
Seattle, June 29.—An average of
twenty-five thousand visitors a day
have gone through the turnstiles of
tbe Alaska-Yukon-I'aclflc exposition
ilnce the opening day on June
first.
From all parts of the west people
have been Hocking to the exposition
and from present indications the
stream of delighted visitors is becoming larger rather than falling off.
Cp to Thursday, June 17, tho total
attendance had reached tbe 100,000
mark, a number equivalent to one-
.third ot the population of thc state.
The side trips around Paget Sound
and Lake Washington have attracted
large numbers. Every day steamers, brightly decorated and laden
with pleasure-seekers, are leaving the
exposition grounds ou the innumerable excursions that nre offered to
different parts of the lake. Tho \
loi ia trip aud the excursions to the
beautiful Hood's canal on Pugc
Sound have nlso attracted many.
POLLARD      OPERA        COMPANY
JULY LOTH AND 12TH.
It was a verv friendly audience
which greeted lbe Pollard graduates
at the Vancouver opera house last
evening and a good deal ol curiosity
was evinced as to what sort of a
programme these former wonder
children would give. Regular patrons of the Ibeatre have established
quite a Pollard cult and the cleverness of '' those dear Australian
children," is a popular theme. But
time rolls on and the children must
grow up, and the verv clever company which opened at the opera housq
last night is composed ot former
stars of the big juvenile production.
It is onlv a few months since thc
Pollards paid Vancouver a farewell
visit before returning to Australia,
and now Eva Moore, Ada Hind and
Teddy McNamara are here as grownups, ll wns difficult to recognize
Miss Moore last night in the charming role of Dora McAllister.- There
was something tfesldcs the name
which convinced the audience that
t|iey knew her, but it was not until
the second act that tbey knew their
favorite, for let it he whispered—Miss
Moore played boys' parts with the
juvenile troupe and We did not recognize in ber the haughty young
lady in dainty muslin, but when she
got into male attire—ah! then we
knew her.
"Widow O'Brien" is tlie title of the
Pollard product ion and a verv merry
Interlude it is, providing plenty ot
laughter, interspersed with very
catchy songs. Tbe bulk of the fun-
making tell on Alfred Goulding, who,
as Widow O'Brien, proved himself a
first-class comedian, lie created a
verv happv spirit and bis appearance
on the stage was a signal for an outburst- of mirth, He sings several
songs, but n mock ballad he rendered
was so absolutely eccentric in its
rendering that it brought down the
bouse' Eva Moore showed a decided,
talent for the heroine role of musical
comedy. She has a very fascinating
stage presence and sings in a charming manner. All her numbers were
given excellently, and particularly
"Mn Cberie," a lillle love song with
a lifting refrain. Ada Hind delighted everybody as Nora O'Brien,
and seems destined for a successful
career. Teddy McNamara came in
for an ovation when be made his first
appearance and added to the gaiety
of the evening considerably. He also
bad an eccentric sbim, which he sang
well. Local illusions crept into the
Pollard versions of "Fairy Tales,"
sung by Alfred Ooulding, Jack Pollard and Harold Fraser. Headman's
Island and the Minto cup games were
dealt with and the happy hits went
bome with a delighted crowd. Jack
Pollard, Charles Chester. Willie Pollard, Harold Eraser, Fred Pollard,
Frank Cherry, Frank Chester, Eva
Pollard, Emma Davis and Mav Pollard, Eva Moore and Alfred .line are
included in the cast and these graduates of a famous school may be con-
^ gratulated upon so successfully inaugural ing their nperatic career.

WHAT PECK HAD TO SAY
(Fernie Free Press.)
In the rare old, fair old days, immediately following the flro, tho city
of Fernie was favored with a visit
from the Immortal J. Peck Mae-
Swain. Nobody knows bow be got
here and freight cars tell no talcs,
but he wus ou the job, in large quantities, when wc were installing our
machinery*
We had a large tent set up in the
rear of the office cellar and in the
cool shades of the evening, when thc
daily stunt was done, Peck would
stretch himself out on a stone table
and exude portions of liis celebrated
lecture on "Tho Complete Life." He
drew largely on his personal experiences for illustrative material. I
remember one anecdote in particular
in the relation of which Peck shone
as a raconteur of the first water.
The scene was laid somewhere in
Oregon.
Peek was on the sprinkler cart and
had been working steadily for several
months. He was wearing comfort
shoes and his toot hadn't itched for
lo, those many moons. In fact,
Peck had established himself as one
of the permanent institutions of the
community.
As an aid to perpetuating a good
resolution he had affiliated with a
temperance society, and in recognition ot his natural genius for writing he had been elected recording
secretary ot the organization. This
exaltation was the cause of his undoing.
Peck was nothing It not literary,
and the opportunity to make use ot
his gift in writing up the minutes of
the proceedings was too good to pass
up. Peck wrote the minutes. And
such minutes! If they have not been
destroyed, the book of proceedings of
Peck's White Ribbon Club would rank
among the Seven Best Sellers if put
into print. He writ the meetings up
as they appeared to bim. Nothing
escaped him. When doings were
slack he sketched the millinery and
when things got hot he transferred
thc heat to the manuscript. He left
pen pictures ot the speakers on thc
minutes and gave tbe workers their
due. They got ah That was coming
to them. If he thought the bare
outline of proceedings made too dry
reading he embellished it with comment and explanation. He made the
most ot his opportunities. Too
mueh, in fact, as events proved.
When thc next election of officers
loomed up it was discovered that the
office nf secretary was to be contcst--
cd. A lady of lesser talents, but
with probably more reserve, was
nominated to oppose Peck. For a
time he was not sure of his ground.
But a personal canvass of all the
members gave him assurance that he
bad a walkover. In fact be was
told by every member that he should
have their suffrage.
"So, of course," said Peck, in telling the story, "just to make the
election unanimous, I voted for my-
seir. And that was the only darn
vote I received!"

William Stickler, Paddy Madigan,
James Gibson and Michael De-
loughery wero on Wednesday romoved
Ior long terms iu tho penitentiary at
New Westminster. The matter is referred tu moro fully elsewhere In lliis
issue, and tho police department deserve to lie heartily congratulated in
netting tho tily rid of such a gang ol
undesirables, if tliere should happen
to he any inure uf their class within
uur limits, it is tu he hoped that tho
.sentences Inflicted will act ns n
warning ami a deterrent to those
pests uf society who iu Cranbrnok
may depend on their getting, as the
saying i.s, "all that is coming to
them," when onee their guilt is proven, it is this sound policy, rigorously followed, that makes Canada a
most uncongenial home of the Black
Hanil artists and others ul their kidney.
Cranbrook is proud ul "Jack" Wilson, whu proved himsell tu he a real
hero iu saving the life of a playmate
al Nelson on Wednesday uf last week.
When Cranbrook ean have boys of
this courage il places tho town in tin-
top notch and tho boy should receive
a Carnegie medal. A better act of
bravery was never performed in British Columbia and when it is taken
into consideration that the hoy wus
only ten years uf age, the promptness of his action ami the courage
displayed were most remarkable. Here
in to ".luck" Wilson and everybody
in Cranbrook will love liiin lor his
brave deed.
It is goud news tu Cranbrook that
tho specifications have been prepared
for the new Imperial Hank building
that is to be constructed on tlie lot
formerly occupied hy the townsite
■.olllco. This means that one ol the
largest hanking institutions in Canada has sufficient confidence in Cranbrouk and this district to spend a
large sum uf money building for its
liusiiiess. The Imperial hank, under
the administration ol J.F.M. Pinkham. has been a big success in Cranbrouk, and the investment ol thc
money in the new hank building is n
credit tu the town nnd to the hank.
BASEBALL
Cnuibrook bad a great week ol
baseball the past week. Never before has the people of this eity had
an opportunity to enjoy the game as
they did with the games that were
played the last few days. The Sand
Point hoys were here and they played ball nnd played decent hall, as
everyone uf them were gentlemen,
and they made friends with every-
hinly thut they met in this city. The
lirst game was une of thc hest ever
played in the town and resulted in a
tie of one tu one. The second game
was in favor of Cranbrook nnd thc
third game was very much in lavor
ol Sand Point, although it might be
mentioned that five junior players
were in the team lhat night. The
Sand Point players were good fellows and they made a lot of friends
in Cranbrook, and when they come
hack to this town tbey will always
receive a royal welcome.
The University ol North Dakota
baseball tram played last night.
Well, wo will say nothing. It was a
good game, hut what is tho use of
prolonging the agony. Everybody
present enjoyed the game and everybody said tliat the visitors were the
right kind of people. And they
were. Tliere was not a nasty word
because there was decent ball. That
is what Cranbrook likes and that is
what the people got from the ball
team from North Dakota. Mav they
come back again is the wish ol the
baseball fans of this city.

The officers are making arrangements fur the camp, and as soon ns
the weather is at all settled, n date
will be announced, it is proposed
to hnve tbe camp somewhere near

"JACK" WILSON     SAVES    THE
LIFE OF A PLAYMATE AT
NELSON.
(Nelson News July 1.)
By an act uf cuul bravery, whieh
1ms" probably never seen a parallel
in Uritisli Columhia, Jack, the ten-
year-old son of His Honor Judge
Wilson and Mrs. Wilson, on Tuesday
afternoon saved Euphemia Stewart,
tiie six-year-old daughter of Mr, and
Mrs. A. 11. Stewart, from certain
death by drowning.
The children were playing on the
lloat of a boat house near Judge Wilson's residence across the lake, when
the door of the boat house, whieh
a gust ot wind suddenlv blew open
pushed the little girl into tlie water.
At this place it was from 10 to 12
feet in depth and the child could .not
swim. Without a moment's hesitation and with all his clothes on Jack
Wilson pluckilv dived into thu water
and catching' hold of his playmate
held her face above water und pushing her in front of him, so that if
she struggled he would not be taken
under, safely landed her at the
shore.
Such quickness of thought, a moment's delay might have been fatal,
and such unhesitating bravery on the
part of a hoy of Master Wilson's age
should not go unrewarded.

Revenge is the only debt which it
is wrong to pay,-
It is nice lo Ire handsome, but it is
a good deal handsomer to be nice.
Man, like thc fire, is apt to torment women by going out at night.
A step taken for mother is a pearl
dropped iuto your future diadem.
When we are dead thc veil of charily is thrown over our faults, and
only our virtues are remembered.
Would to Clod that the world would
be so merciful while yet we live.
Strict attention to business, sell-
culture, and un eye to tbe future, arc
the key notes to success in life, and
it behooves every young man if he
wants to get on to bear this iu
mind.
"There is a kind of loudness lhat
ruins children as surely ns there is a
fondness that blesses them. There
is sometimes more real sweetness in
a gentle repressive rebuke than in
the warmest praise, oftentimes more
love in the md than in a reward. Wc
help our children most when wo help
them lo take an honest view of themselves, and tbis wc enn never do hy
(lattering their too easily nattered
self-conceit."
One of thc greatest mistakes made
by young men at the present -day is
not looking to the future. So long as
the present is pretty comfortable,
they let thc future take care ol itself. "Mc that observeth the wind
shall not sow, and he that regardcth
tlie clouds shall not reap." Though
chilly winds prevail the -dark clouds
hang over thc way and unpropitious
seems thc weatlier, yet our duty, our
work is before us, and we hesitate to
perforin it until the time that
deem most auspicious. Our labor
then may go for naught, and blight
thc grain not yet matured and our
reaping will he regrets for lost opportunities that wc did not grasp,
because they appeared to us premature, and wc were led to cry "time
enough yet." "Sow in the morn
thy seed" and it will be ready for
the bright sinshine soon to come, and
in the harvest great will be thy reward, for thy labor will not have
been in vain.
WILY   DO  THE   CHILDREN LOVE
YOU?
As we look at some families where
thc children seem to just worship
their parents, and again wo see others where the children seem to think
more ot everybody else than they do
of their parents, and we pause and
exclaim why is it? Parents, do you
wish for your children to love und
respect you? lf you do, when your
child comes to you for advice be sure
to give good advice; don't say, "Oh,
go way, don't bother me, go ask
your mother," or some such answer.
Or if they come to their mother perhaps she says, "Go to your father, I
am busy." The child will soon get
afraid lo ask.advice for fear of being
rebuked, and it will be apt to seek
advice somewhere else. If you take
an interest in your children they
will take an interest in you. We
have seen little children while running at play, or perhaps on an errand for their parents, get a fall and
bump a head or skin a finger, and
when they would go to their parents
for a kind word of comfort they
would say: "Well, next time look
where you are going and don't he so
awkward; go long now and hush."
That child will certainly lind out
sooner or later that its parents have
no love or sympathy for it, and it
will grow up without any kind feeling toward that parent. But on the
otlier hand let the child come to the
parents for advice, and if kind words
are spoken tlie child will never forget it, and will always look with respect on that parent. If the little
child gets a bump or a fall, or a cut
or a skinned finger, mother will say:
"Come to your mother and let her
pet you," and she will kiss tho humped head and wrap up the hurt finger,
with a few kind words. Then the
child knows you love it, and it will
love you and always respect you, and
when years have passed and gone and
Ihey have grown to manhood and
womanhood they will look back to
their childhood days as the happiest
days of their lives.
A word of comfort kindly spoken,
Will many a moment cheer;
A   word of   scorn  to a heart that's
broken,
Will cause grief tor many a year.
Hard though it Iw to love those
who hate you, it is harder still to
hate those who love you.
HOME INFLUENCES.
Wc may laugh at the manly ways
of our boys, and make merry over
their attempts to copy our own actions, hut wben wc reflect that, with
the manners of childhood, they have
lost its innocence, our laughter will
nt onee yield to hitter tears. The
precocious dissipation and vice ot our
youth is a frequent theme ot the
preni'lier nnd moralist, nnd is one
worthy of all their efforts, There is
something more required, howover,
tlmn the sermon nnd the lecture; this
something more is thc influence ot
homo, nnd we must contrive some
menus to keep the children there that
tbey mav feel Its full force.
Is it thnt the strict formality ot
nur domestic manners is not sufficiently accommodating to youthful
impulse? Is it that our youth ls
merely educated to thc outward
forms of a regard for home as lads
in school, who are only taught to
conjugate "I love" and never feel it?
Whatever may he the cause, there is
no doubt of thc tact that our voung
people are in the habit ot seeking
elsewhere than under the parental
root for means of gratifying their
taste for pleasure. It would startle
mothers {fathers are too hardened hy
the world to be so sensitive) if they
could go into some of the daily
haunts of our metropolitan vouthv
and see with what practiced ease
their children, like a brood of voung
serpents, are gliding into the pathways of vice.
One cause of this is the change
thnt has taken place around the domestic hearth. The mnstcr of the
bouse rarely dines at home, and the
boys, ns they grow up, find it pleasant   to get their    "
Kor tbem home bus no enjoyment, and tbey puss as little time
there as possible.
Make overy home where there are
hoys, cheerful, comfortable and enjoyable.     Remember the good     ex-
niple, taught us by thc best of
books; let us kill the "fatted calf"
for the prodigals. Then tbey will
not frequent dens of vice, but will
love and enjoy the friendship of tue
fireside.

Mrs. George Mulder, whose husband, Professor Jules Mulder, was
murdered hy Lieutenant Bartumeek,
a Hungarian ollicer, at Davos Plat/-,
last March, has written .a letter to
the London Standard, regarding the
tragedy. Professor Mulder protested against Lieutenant Bartumeck's
insulting manner, and the ollicer
thereupon challenged him to tight.
Professor Mulder replied, "If the
lieutenant will come outside and will
put up his hands, I will give him
an Englishman's satisfaction." "All
the time my husband was speaking—
it was on our way out of the dining room that the seconds accosted
us—Lieutenant Bartumeek had been
standing a little away aloof. My
husband was standing with my arm
iu his, -and- a cigarette between his
fingers, when the ollicer stepped forward, and, without a word, drew his
revolver, and placing it within a
few inches of my husband's chest,
fired. "He then aimed thc pistol at
me, but a German interposed. My
husband fell, and died within a few
minutes, and not one of that crowd
of Germans and Austrians helped me
but left mc along with the body to
do the best I could." Lieutenant
Bartumeek was sentenced to onlv, six
months' imprisonment.
Painful revelations were made at
thc Padiham, Lancashire, juvenile
court, recently, when Jonathan Hard-
acre, a boy of ten, was charged with
assaulting a child ot two named
Sidney Thompson. Mr. Garnott, for
the Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty to Children, said that Hard-
acre was supposed to be at school
while his parents were at work,
but Ire had evidently been in the
habit of playing truant and enticing
smaller children Into his home in
Milton street. In this way he got
the baby Thompson inside, and
struck it In thc face, bursting its
nose. Then Hardacrc made some
toffee and held thc hot spoon against
the child's face, following this up
with beating the baby about the
head till the face was covered with
blood. Next to cut the child's
hair, incidentally snipping a piece
out of one ear, and on examination
the chi.d was found to have a distinct impression ot a clog-kick on the
lower part of thc body. His father
attributed it all to living picture exhibitions—his lad had never missed u
picture show. He had been known
to wake up In bed shouting, "Here
goes, Johnson and Burns." Mr.
Garnett asked that thc hoy should tie
sent tn an industrial home, but the
magistrates decided to allow him to
go on twelve months' probation.

was the subject of an inquest at
Niiiuiingiim, Yorks, recently. The
deceased was Henry Clancey, a haw-
I ker. Evidence showed that the cyclists, William Ranson and Isaac Wilson, were Obstructed hv Clancey, who
was accompanied by Margaret Clancey
and another hawker. Clancey accused
, the cyclists of insulting liis wife,
and hade them dismount, which tbey
did. lit- then made a desperate at-
1 tack on Ranson, who retaliated, and
struck him down. Clancey was left
on the roadside, as the cyclists
thought ho was shamming, but bearing ot his subsequent death, the men
communicated with the police. Medical evidence showed that death resulted frnm rupture of a blood vessel
caused probably by excitement. The
[jury returned a verdict accordingly.
1 and exonerated Ranson and Wilson
from blame.
When tho British admiralty hears
of Henry Moody there is little doubt
that tight Dreadnoughts will be ordered fur immediate delivery. Moody
has decide;! to devote his life to re-
venging himself on an ungrateful
country, and with this object he intends to strike a heavy blow at the
nation's commerce. The lirst hint
of Ins plans was given when he was
accused at Clerkenwell ol begging.
"If you deal with me severely I
shall give all my energy to the career of a pirate," he told the magistrate with passionate earnestness.
"I have a propensity for piracy, and
it won't be Scotland Vard that will
slop me. It will have lo be tin
navy to meet me nexl. There bav>
been Paul Joneses and Cromwells he
fore, and it can be done again. It
only waits fur me to mobilize the
dorcltcts of tho nation, and then
will be trouble." He will have three
wicks of seclusion in which to mature his scheme.
A scare has been caused at
Grimsby by an incident whieh took
place at lbe admiralty wireless station at Ilamberstune, near Grimsby,
recently. Shortly after 10 o'clock,
two men made a sudden attack upon
one of tho staff, rendering him unconscious. An alarm was raised, bul
the mon ran away, and though a
Search was made tor them no trace
Of them could bo found. The feeling
in some quarters is that the assailants were foreign spies, who hoped
to gain access to the operating room
and steal the code book. Since the
incident the patrol has been armed,
and notices are being displayed that
all persons must explain thc nature
of their business upon challenge,
while any person failing to halt and
hold up but-h hands upon challenge
will be shot.
Au Impudent and daring escape
from the custody ot the police took
place recently at Ealing. Three
men had been arrested on suspicion
of stealing a number of cricket bats
and uther paraphernalia, and were
being conveyed by three constables to
the police station iu the High street,
when one of thc number suddenly
slipped his coat with remarkable
dexterity, and at the same moment
tripped up thc ollicer in whose charge
