Citizen Soldiers and Their Guests Celebrate First Victory of Imperial  Army.
Paardeberg Day was duly observed lu
Nelson last night by the local military
men, who had a large number of citizens as Ihelr guests In the armory.
The proceeding began a littlu before
9 o'clock with the singing of "Rule Hii-
tannia" by all  presenl.
Sheriff Tuck wus then chosen as
chaliinan by iinaiilmoiis vole and presided lor Uie renialuder of the evening
with dignity and grace. Called upon for
a speech, he referred eloquently to the
Importance of the evenl they had met
to celebrate and expressed the hope that
ln iny future hour of need tho men of
tbe colonies will always be found ready
to fight for the throne and Hag. a sentiment which was enthusiastically applauded.
Then came iu order a song by S. A.
Wye, a recitation by T. Keith, anal a
comic song by Mr. Mortimer.
The lirsl boxing bout, between Messrs
King and Thompson, the latter iu disguise, evoked laughter to atone for the
lack of applause.
A song followed by K. Smith, then
came another boxing boui, a serious
one. between Privates lb siajn and J.
Mcl.auchlaii, in which Heeston's lieighl,
weighl and reach gave him uu overwhelming advantage.
Another song, by Mr. Parker, followed.
Then Hi'V. 1'*. II. tiraham was called
upon for a speech ou "The liritish
Army." He reminded his hearers that
the day was tha" anniversary of Majuba
Hill as well as ot" Paardeberg, and rejoiced that Canadians, Including Capt.
Lome Sta.wart, had helped to pay the
score. He attributed tha- completeness
of the victory of Paardeberg very largely to the untiring energy or Sir John
French.
Emphasis was glva'n to the fact that
Urltlsh Columbia's const line Is the only BliUsh territory on the eastern shore
of the Puclllc which the speaker considered of au liiipoiUiiu'a' hardly realized here or In Britain, und ho rejoiced
ihat lhe military spirit ot ill,, province
promised that "the gateway"  would ul
ways be held for the empire,
As il Canadian lie rejoiced that as
soon  as  It  wus  known  lhal  volunteers
would   ba-   accepted,   Canada   offered
ninny Unit's more than could he taken.
Mr. Graham displayed as his souvenir
ol the war a New Yeur's greet Ing. carv-
ud on a campaign biscuit, from two
members of his bible class In Montreal
from Belmont on Jun. 1st. 11100.

SHELVED FOR SESSION
Whole Brewing Interest Roused for
Fight Against Mr. Asquith's
Licensing Bill.
London, Feb. 28.���Chancellor As-
quilh's bold and drastic licensing bill,
khich was Introduced in the house of
commons yesterday. Is raising a storm
of denunciation In Uie opposition. Mr.
Ilalfour gave his party a lead in the
briet speech stigmatizing the measure
as "Robbery." The tremendous strength
of the brewing Interests throughout the
country will be brought to bear in an
euda*avor to prevent the passage of the
bill or to obtain an extensive amendment, especially ln the direction of
securing a longer time limit than four
years, which ls regarded as likely to Indict serious injury to the interests of
the shareholders of brewing companies,
represenUng a capital of $1,200,000,000.
Some of Uie Unionists regard the bill
as another move ln tbe campaign
agalnsl tbe House of Lords. The best
opinion in the lobby, however, favored
the van- that Mr. Asquith Ib asking
much more than he hopes to obtain and
that Lhe bill would pass in greatly-
amended form.
The women's enfranchisement hill
passed Its first reading in the house of
commons Ihls afternoon by a vote of
271 to I'LL and as soon as the news reached Westminster palace yard, the waiting crowds of women suffragists who
had a--sa-i��lala<d there, broke out Into
round after round of cheers. The measure is identical with Uie bill defeated
in March, 1907.
Herbert Gladstone, the home secretary, declared that personally he favored the principles of the bill, but he
thought that public opinion would huve
to be moved before any effect could be
given to it. The opponents of the bill
made no objection to the vote of the
haause being taken, and as its promoters
consented to its reference to a committee of the whole house, the bill is effectually shelved for tho present session. Great crowds of women awaited
the result near the house of commons
and strong detachments of police had
been brought up to guard against possible disturbances, bul beyond the cheering there was little demonstration.

PROPHET SAYS CANNON
"Bim, the Button  Man," Who Predicted
Roosevelt's First Candidature
Names "Uncle Joe."
New York, Feb. 28.���"Take it from
me, Speaker Cannon ls sure to be the
next Presidential candidate of the Republican party. Some things may "happen between now and June to change
my opinion, but if I were ordering
campaign buttons today I would put In
my bid for a thousand of tthe Cannon
emblems for every gross of buttons 1
ordered for Taft, Hughes or any other
of those mentioned in connection wiih
the Republican nomination."
The above ls the opinion expressed
by Max Hlmherg, better known as "Him,
the Button Man." Though he is kept
pretty busy nowadays construcUng and
manning theatres iu the metropolis,
"Him" is still ready to talk of the campaign button business, in which he laid
the foundation of his present substantial fortune. Up to the conventions ot
11,00 he wus a familiar figure at all of
the national political gatherings. With
a force of street fakirs and hawkers
he was accustomed to jump from iN'ew
York to the convention city ready to
Hood Uie place with all varieUes of
campaign  buttons.
It was at the Republican national
couvenuon in Philadelphia that "Bim
established his reputation as a long distance political prognoBUcator. As will
be remembered, the nominaUon ul
Roosevelt was not thought of for second
place on the Ucket at the time Uie convention assembled. Those who' "had
broached the subject to the leader ol
tbe "Rough Riders" had been met with
his plain and unqualified statement thai
he would not accept lhe nomination.
Hut, as everyone knows, arguments
were brought to bear upon Mr. Roosevelt that caused him to change his
mind, though so far as the general pub-
lice was concerned his nomination hau
been entirely unlooked for. Then il
was thai "Him, the Button Man,"came
into prominence. Before the noise Of
lhe balloting and cheering had died
away be had his men Hooding the convention hall lobbieB aud the streets of
Philadelphia wilh buttons and budges
bearing the likeness of the Vice-Presidential candidate. And to cap the climax he stated that he had brought several thuusaud of the Roosevelt buttons
from New York because he bud been
absolutely certain of his nomination.
Thus was established Mr. Blmberg's
reputation as a political prophet.
"Him" is no longer in the button business aud those who have succeeded
him do not seem to place much reliance in his opinion on the subject of
the Presidential nominee of the Republican parly this year. Speaker Cannon
does not appear to cut much of a figure
in tin It trade calculations. The largest manufacturers of the campaign emblems in the country, located iu Newark, are already ln receipt of orderB
for millions oT I,anions from the doalers
in such things. These orders show thut
Tuft and Hi van ure regarded as the
probable nominees. The order for Bryan buttons far outnumbers all the reft,
indicating presumably that the Nebraskan leader is supposed to have a sure
thing on the Democratic nomination.
The number of Taft buttons ordered is
almost as large. Hughes buttons are
being turned out ill considerable quantities, but if Cannon, Knox, LuFollette,
or anyone else heads the ticket to he
named at Chicago the button makers
will have to do some hurry-up work,
as there will be no large supply of
these   buttons   made   up   ln  advance.
The campaign this rail will bring
forth a number of novellleB ln the wny
of emblems. A number nf unique designs to be used by both parties are already being made. But the famlllnr
tin button with the celludlold facing,
the kind that has sprung into worldwide popularity during the past few
years .will be used Ui u greater extent
than ever before. These are turned out
ln such quantities and at such u low
price that they can be sold at from one
to ton cents, or even given away, ut

it ;.     a-i rs. j

of the government. He waa of the
opinion that the recent Crimea in Montreal had been committed by comparatively few Italians, and he hardly

in Montreal to the lack of law enforcement regarding the carrying of concealed weapons, and the abundance of
saloons ln that city.

company of Ottawa, since 1896, has supplied the government filing devices and
steel cases to the value of $218,723.
The year 1907 was a good one tor the
development of the trades union movement ln Canada, being productive of
greater organization than ln any twelve
months since 1903. The Labor Gasette
for February contains an Interesting
article upon this point, from which lt
la gleaned tbat the total number ot
labor organlzaUons formed ln Canada
during 1907 was 232, and ot organlsa-
Uons dissolved 58, being a net Increase
during the year of 174 tn the number
of organisations ln existence.
Attell to Meet Eddie Kelly.
San Francisco, Feb. 28.���A twenty-
round go between Champion Abe Attell
and Eddie Kelly, tbe clever Buffalo
featherweight, ls slated tor the arena
or Jack Gleason's club tonight, but owing to a dispute over the division of the
purse there ls a possibility that the
bout may not take place as scheduled.
If the two little fighters come together
a lively and Interesting contest Is ex
pected to take place. Kelly has forged
rapidly to the front ln bis division and
has won many admirers since bis arrival on the coast. It Is tbe prevailing
opinion among those who have studied
his work that the Buffalo fighter shouM
be able to give the champion a Uvel/
tusael for the honors.

DOMINION    ELECTIONS.
Yesterday's despatches contained an
onnouncenient from Toronto that Ihe
Ottawa corraspondent ok the Mail and
Empire had been Informed that tho
na'xt Dominion general elections would
lie held next November. Of course the
Ottawa correspondent aaf the Mall nnd
Empire, tha* leading Conservative
newspaper of Ontario, is not the most
likely person to receive accurate information on aaiuestion which ls to be de-
teimlnid entirely by the exigencies oi
the Machine, ah private Information,
from BOttrooS whose inrorniatlon is never far est ray, potnts to a very much
earlier date.
It ls worthy of note, too, thnl neither
party is waiting for any' nearer approach or the BtruKKlaj. ir a list of constituencies of the Dominion, with can-
already nominated, were made
.an now, the blanks would not he
y numerous. As a rule a candidate doeB not care to bo in that position for very long, nor does his party
care to keep him there. It is hard to
sustain enthusiasm througii a long period   of   waiting.
The truth Is that bcth parties expect
the appeal to the country Immediately
after the close of the session, and there
ls every warrant for that expectation.
Further continuance of the present cabinet and commons can only result in
piling higher the accumulation of scandals. Every day in the public accounts
committee reva*als some new "middleman" who has acquired a competence
by acting as a buying or selling agent
for the government, lt may be for only
one transaction. In fact "middleman"
at Ottawa Is only another name for
thiol, lint In these circumstances the
thief requires a cabinet minister as an
accomplice.   No thief haa yet failed to
find one willing to undertake the part.
Apart fiom ihe extreme desirability
oi getting rid of many of his present
supporters, Sir Wilfrid has other motives that will incline him to an early
dissolution. For the sake of Western
votes he must not wait until Mr. Lemieux' alleged achievement is demonstrated to be barren, as lt Is absolutely
certain to be. And he must take advantage of the first sign of revival of prosperity and expansion. The time is getting too short to risk the possibility of
another financial crisis with Its resulting industrial and commercial depression.
All these condition portend an appeal to the constituencies not later than
midsummer.
The party organizations in Urltlsh
Columbia are unaccountably lagging behind the rest of the country in preparing for the struggle. Only In Now Westminster have candidates been placed in
ih.- field, or course ii muy be presumed lhat with tho exception ot Mr. Kennedy, of New Westminster, who Is a
very old man, not acquainted with modern Liberal methods, and Hob McPherson, who Is imiiosslblc anywhere, the
Solid Seven will seek re-election if their
parties   will   permit.
It is high lima.' thai the Conservatives of British Columbia realized their
responsibility and made preparation for
fulfilling  it.
Here in Kootenay the party's chief
perplexity arises rrom an embarrassment of riches. Kootenay ls a big constituency and contains many men of
ability, of political and administrative
experience, and of acknowledged standing. Among a great many may be mentioned Hon. It. F. Green, ex-commlsilon-
er of lands and works whose administrative ability has been amply demonstrated, A. S. Goodeve, of Rossland, R.
S. Lennie, W. A. Macdonald, K. C, and
Fred. A Starkey, of Nelson, J. H. Scho-
lleld, of Trail, William Hunter, of Silverton, A. E. Watts, of Watlsburg, G.
S. McCarter, of Cranbrook, W. R. Ross,
of Fernie, T. Taylor, of Revelstoke. Any
one of these would make a creditable
and valuable representative of Kootenay ln the Dominion parliament. Infinitely more creditable and more valuable than our present member.
We incline to the belief that the
choice of the party will fall on a Nelson
man. The sooner the choice ls made
and accepted and the party organised
for the campaign the better It will be
for the Conservative party and for
Kootenay.
American Army Changes.

FOREST CONSERVATION
All the World Realizing Disastrous Consequences  of  Permitting   Its
Destruction.
That Canada has only 30U.000.000
acres ol commercially valuable timber
lands Ib Ihe somewhat pessimistic opln
lux of Ur. HI. II. Kemow, dean of tin,
faculty of forestry ln Toronto Unlvea'-
slty. and formerly head of the forestiy
work In the United Btates. It. H. Camp*
bell, on the contrary, estlmutes that w .
have 535.000.000 acres of valuable ford-t
land, but even this tremendous area Ib
considerably less than the 800,000,0" a
UM which was, until recently, su,,*
poBod to represent tbe extent of Oil'
forest wealth. Finally, Treadw.,.
.Cleveland, Jr., of the United States f��'���
est service, estimates that we have nol
more than 260.0U0.01MJ acres stocKei
will, commercial timber. He figures
out that we have not much more XhAi
hall as much good timber as tbe Unlled
Slates, although we continue to exj,*-.-:
lt in double the quantity.
It Is well known that the timber situ
atlon in the United States Is regarded
by President Roosevelt as very seilous.
So impressed ls he with the gravity of
the outlook that he has taken the 16-
markable step of summoning all the
governors of the United States to ni-.a-i
him and confer on this question. Tin-
preaident believes that unless som��nn
ca*. ted action ls taken to prevent d .-
nudation of the land, the timber IOfp,*r
of the United States will be exhausieu
ln a very few years. Not only would
such a consummation be deplorable i
regards the loss of the timber llxjlf,
but Its effect upon tbe climate, rainfall
and crops of the United States would
be nothing short of a national calamity.
In order, therefore, to prepare public
opinion for soma drastic action, the forestry bureau ls distributing millions, of
circulars eonlalnlng Information ajout
Uie work of preserving tbe limber Ia.id*
in different parts of tbe world. In tbe
Paper Hill of current issue appears a
synopsis of one of these bullcvlns, which
contains facts tbat Canadians should
ponder.
What happens to a country whose
forest have been removed is ttriki.iRlj
illustrated ln tba case of '.u>iy. One-
third of all the land la unpioductive,
and though some of thla area might be
made to support forest growth, one-
quarter of tbe whole country >s be, ...ad
reclamation, mainly aa a result of clear
ed hillsides and the pasturing ol goats.
In summer tbe rivers are dry; in spring
they are wild torrents, and floods brown
with tbe soil of tbe hillsides buiy the
fertile lowland fields. The rains have
loosened the earth on the hills, and
where once they were clad with verdure
now the bare rocks beam out, the very
skeletons of tbe ravaged land. Italy
has passed laws Intended to repair seme
of the ruin man's carelessness has
wrought, but repentance has come too
late, and the best that can now be done
Is to prevent further destruction.
Russia's forests are of Immense extent, covering 39 per cent, of European
Russia, and 350,000,000 acres of Asiatic

to population is about the same in
France as in Germany, about three-
fifilis of an acre per head. France also
is an importer to the extent of $30,000,-
000 annually, to which must be added
$6,000,000 for duty and $10,000,000
freight. Even Germany has wood to sell
to France. Ever since 1827 France has
been protecting her forests, and the result has been highly satisfactory, although only ln the nature of repairing
damage wrought in the eighteenth century, when large areas were cleared for
cultivation on land that was fit only for
timber. Norway's 20,000,000 acres of
forest supply $18,000,000 worth of export timber every year; but tbe cut ls
at the expense of the forest capital, and
if the present system is continued disaster awaits Norway.
Austria administers her great forests
wisely. She has 24,000,000 acres of commercial wondlands. and although only
7 per cent, belongs to the suite most
of the private forests are in blocks ot
from 20,000 to 350,000 acres. On these
large holdings forest management can
be practised with great success. The
government assists tbe movement toward protection and restoration by a
system of taxation that penalizes those
owners who do not wisely manage their
properties. It hsn been suggested that
a similar system might bave good results in the United States, and lt is not
unlikely that President Roosevelt's programme will contain this feature.���

Gun  Club.
At the annual meeting of the Nelson
Gun Club held in the Hume hotel last
night the following officers were elected: president, G. P. Welis; vice-president, E. W. Monk; secretary-treasurer,
W. A. Ward. The fee was fixed at |2.
It was resolved to move tbe traps from
ihe present location at the foot of Stanley street westward to the lower C. P. R.
Hats, and to arrange for the opening of
regular weekly contests as soon as
possible.
Sheep Creek  Mines.
Those who know Sheep Creek Valley
predict that Its development this spring
and summer will be the most conspicuous feature ln mining in the Kootenay.
In the Queen mine, worked by W.
Waldie, not only have the satisfactory
results continued in the original ore
bodies but quite recently new and valu-
abla.* discoveries have been made at
depth. Meanwhile the Nugget, operated
by W. B. Pool, and the Emerald, operated by John Waldbeser, have become
steady shippers of high grade ore.
Tea and Reception.
The trustees of the Pythian Sisters
have completed arrangements for their
two functions on Manday afternoon for

given in the K. of P. ball. The hostesses
will offer the best entertainment possible and guests are reminded that the
(abject is to raise funds for the relief of
poor families in the city. Nelson has
been singularly free from such necessities as compared with any other city ln
Canada, which ls an additional reason
why response to the present appeal
all -ul.I be adequate.
Masonic Ball-
Tonight Ib the date of the Masonic
ball to which Nelson's dancing fraternity has long been looking forward. Ail
preparations are completed and It seems
assured that even the magnificent efforts that have already made this season memorable are to be eclipse. As a
measure to reassure the most cautious
or nervous, an emergency exit has been
openetl on the east side of the building,
facing Falls street. An excellent supper has been prepared and an efficient
