Christ, one of lhe Virgin Mary and out
or 8L John the Divine. The figure of
Christ Is above, ln the attitude of invocation. Father Althoff wished to have
Christ represented In the act of blessing, and will have the figure changed
accordingly. Round the lunula are four
brilliants and engraved round It is the
reply of St. Peter, In Latin, "We Believe
and Know that Thou art the Christ, the
Sou of tlie Living Cod." Hound the
pedestal are amethysts and other texts
engraved. The work Is that ot a master and the result is a beautiful work
of art.

Duly Honored by Nelson's
Irish Brigade
Dinner and Music Both Attuned to
Memories of Emerald Isle and
Its Patron Saint.
St. Patrick's Day was duly observed
In Nelson yesterday. The ladles were
iu charge and though their plan of campaign was ambitious it wus a brilliant
success. The celebration began mildly
witli afternoon tea served from 8 to 5
and ended with an Irish At Home which
lasted  till  10.30.
The opera bouse was beautifully
dicoratud with dowers, Hags and bunt-
iug, the Shamrock, Ireland's harp and
green being naturally most in evidence.
Alter many visitors had been received aud refreshed during the afternoon,
two long tables were laid across the
stage, and tastefully decorated with
puts of shamrock and green ribbon.
Dinner was served from ti to 8 o'clock,
and about 200 guests accepted the invitation.
The menu cards were ln the form of
three loaled shamrocks, in green and
tied with green ribbon. It included
Tlpperary ham, smothered with shamrocks, Belfast bucou with turnips from
riligo, "the ould Mulllngur," Irish stew
iu Dublin style, aud potato cakes from
Qalway. The Jellies were from Tralee
aud Donegal.
After dinner the men were allowed
a smoke In the gallery and dhudeens
were supplied to tnose who had neglected oilier provision.
The stage was soon cleared and about
8.45 T. J. Bosnian addressed the audience. He assured them that the name
"Irish At Home" meant exactly what it
said, lhat there wuuld be Intervals during the presentation of the programme,
that tables were provided lu frout for
those who cared for cards, that conversation was not prohibited and that
gentlemen who wished to enjoy pipe or
cigar were at liberty to do so in the
TTie audience accepted the Invitation
as far as possible but as the house was
crowded beyond the limit of seating
capacity there was little moving round.
No further announcement was mude
and the programme proceeded informally.   '
The first number was a selection of
Irish airs on the piano by Miss Jessie
H. W. McKenna followed with a song,
"Colleen Bawit," and ou being recalled
sang "Tlpperary."
R. J. Clark, president of St. Patrick's
Society, then made a brief address.
Alter thanking the committee personally and on behalf of the society for the
honor paid him as the president, he explained that for tlie last four years the
ladles had hurried their St. Patrick's
Day entertainments through early In
the evening so as not to interfere wilh
the society's celebration. This year
the society had decided to give the
whole evening to the ludles, and he
congratulated them on the splendid
success of lheir At Home, which Included a banquet, n smoker and a con
Cert, all  In one.
He would not presume to tell an Irish
audience anything nbout St. Patrick.
He mentioned that at fOnglish and
Scotch celebrations ln Nelson, Ireland's
representatives had regularly to refute
absurd olalma lo St. Patrick put forward on behalf of Scoland and France,
lie quoted from a speech on the Union
���lack recently delivered by Lord Rose;
bery to the school children of Edinburgh
In which the ex-premler confessed that
he had no Idea why St. Andrew waa
Scotland's patron saint.
The speaker continued: "Other nations chose their patron saints at random, from history or mythology, after
they were dead and couldn't resent It;
Ireland was chosen by her saint ln his
lifetime, a lifetime spent by choice In
Ireland among Its people."
After a brief reforence to Ihe legendary splendor and happiness of Ireland
In the centuries Hint followed the life
and work of St. Patrick, and Ihe storms
of Invasion by which tho country was
reduced   to   poverty   and   misery,   Mr,
Clark continued: "But St. Patrick's
work could never be undone. It has
lasted till today, and his spirit lives
and works still tn the best of the Irish
priesthood, of the type of "Father
'Powerfullegt  preacher
And  tenderest teacher
And   kindliest creature
In all Donegal.'"
Passing  from   the  saint   whose   day
they  were met to observe, to the land
for which he labored, the speaker said:
"Ireland's history for many centuries
has been a sad one.    In many  respects
her record as a nation had bee failure.
Rut a nation exists for tbe Bake of Its
members.    Ireland's contribution to the
long list of British worthies has been
a splendid one.   In arms, ln letters and
in   statesmanship   Ireland's   sons   have
splendidly served the United Kingdom,
and  the  race  that produced them cannot  be called a failure."
Reference was made to the fact that
the two most illustrious of Britain's
veteran soldiers, Lords Wolseley and
Roberts, were of Irish birth, and the
man un whom their mantle is falling is
another  Irishman, Lord Kitchener.
Of Irish virtues, conceded by all the
world, loyalty stood first. The faithful
Irish servant was a familiar character
ln life as in fiction, "but it Is not only
as servants that the Irish are true. As
servant, soldier, friend or lover, the
type of loyalty Is the Irishman."
In concluding Mr. Clark referred to
the changes coming over the condition
and prospects of Ireland: "Her divisions are growing less distinct. The
hope of ultimate peace, unity and harmony is growing brighter. Let us hope
that before long in the old land, as here
in Nelson where there is nothing to divide us. Irishmen ot the north, south,
east und west, of all classeB, may unite
to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, and may
shout, all with one voice and meaning:
Erin Go Bragh.' "
G. E. Brown then sang "Killarney"
ln very pleasing style and had to respond to an encore, which he did with
"The Minstrel Boy.'
Miss Patrick Bang "Come Back to
Erin," and then delighted the younger
element of the audience especially with
"O'Brien Had No Place to Go."
E. H. Smith, who has achieved immediate popularity in Nelson's musical
circles, sang "Father O'Flynn and "The
Mighty Deep," both in splendid style.
Mr. Brennan gave a novel treat ln a
whistling solo, "The Mocking Bird."
Miss Annie Sturgeon sang "Love Me
and the World ts Mine" very acceptably.
The programme was concluded with
a farce in which T. J. Scanlan, T. Mc-
Astocker and J. Daly took part, the latter
as the ghost ln the haunted house that
an Irishman and a negro were going to
own on condition of surviving one
night's residence. The performance
was cleverly executed and the programme ended with the audience in the
best of humor. All the performers
joined ln "God Save the King."

Frankfort, Ky., March 18.���With the
passing of the anti-pool law which provides a heavy penalty for operating a

the 1D0S session of the Kentucky legislature adjourned early today. Only by
most heroic methods were friends of

thrown when an unfavorable committee
on rules was ouHted from control of the
lloor. The bill was passed by a vote of
08 lo 4.

cup, and the Shamrocks of Montreal,
lust night played tho finest game of
hockey seen In New York this year,
the former winning by a score of 12 to
7. The game was fast and clean
throughout. Both sides put up a hard
fight. The team work of the Shamrocks was much better than that of the
Wanderers, but the latter won the
contest on the strength of their Individual work, getting many moro shots
at  the  net  thnn  their opponents.

British Premier Reported
Sir Hairy Cunpbell-Baniiermaa Is
Very III and Recovery Believed
To Be Doubtful.
London, March 18.���Late last night
the condition ot Premier Sir Henry
Campbell-Baunerman was unchanged,
but on account of disquieting symptoms
the physicians decided to remain in attendance through tbe night. There waa
much speculation in the lobbies of parliament last evening with regard to the
coming cabinet changes. It Is understood that with tbe accession of Herbert
Asqulth to the premiership there will be
a reconstruction, tbe Marquis ot Ripon
and Sir Henry Fowler both retiring on
account of advanced age and Winston
Spencer Churchill, under secretary tor
the colonies, and Sir Walter Runclman,
financial secretary to the treasury, being promoted to cabinet rank. It la
sull undecided how the portfolios will
be redistributed, much depending upon
whether Mr. Asqulth elects to retain
the chancellorship of the exchequer until be has piloted bis old age pension
scheme through parliament.
The bulletin issued today regarding
the condition of Sir Henry Campbell-
Bannerman. tbe premier, says tbat yesterday the patient was more comfortable. Tbe chief- Bymptoms are no
worse and Sir Henry's strength bis improved slightly. ���
Boycotting    Impossible    Under   Recent
Supreme Court Decision.
Washington, D. C, March 18.���In response to the recent call of President
Samuel dumpers a large number of
labor leaders of national prominence
assembled in conference at the headquarters of the American Federation of
Labor here today to discuss and take
action in regard to tho recent decisions of the United States Supreme
Court concerning labor. Some of the
decisions recently handed down by the
supreme tribunal have dealt the hardest blows to organised labor ln the
history ot tbe United States. One of
the most Important of these decisions
was that which declared illegal the
form of boycott practiced by tbe labor
organizations against alleged unfair
employers. Another decision of equal
or even greater Importance was that
delivered by the Suprtne Court ln the
so-called hatters' case, In which It was
decided that a labor organization Is financially responsible for damage suffered by an employer through a boycott Instituted by a labor organisation.
As there is no appeal from tbe decisions of the Supreme Court tbe labor
leadera are at sea as to what course to
pursue tn the matter. It Is probable,
however, that some form of legislative

Smirnoff was probably fatally wounded
by General Fock ln a duel this morning.
The men met In the riding school of
the Chevalier Guard regiment and
fought with pistols at short range. The

There should be- a large attendance
tonight at the public meeting in the
court house called to consider the future of the publicity  bureau.
Of the value of the community advertising there li no question, it is
raeogniied bj every oilier city and
town In Western Cauda aud not one
lias more tu advertise or more reason
to advertise It than Nelson. Cities
grow very slowly If Uiey have no
source of growth bin the excess of
births over deaths, itupid growth is,
and can be, achiever] only by attracting
new coiners, anil new coiners can be
attracted only by circulating as widely
as possible knowledge ol the resources
and attractions ot the city ami district,
by making it known as a desirable
pice to live aud a good place to make
a living.
Thai is the method lhat is being followed by every city in Canada trom
Manitoba to the Pacific. Cities exploit
their advantages as manufacturing or
distributing centres, as educational centres, and even us attractive places for
tourists und  sportsmen  to  visit.
Canada as a whole is receiving large
additions to her population by immigration from Kurope and the I'nlted
Stales. Hy far the larger portion ���f it
will come to the territory west of the
Great Lakes. The government of llritish Columbia through lis department
of agriculture aud Immigration,
through lhe office of the agent general
In London, und through its efficient ln-
fomation bureau, is doing all that a
government can do. and there is no
danger that British Columbia as a
Whole will not get a fair proportion of
the  newcomers.
Hut their further distribution will depend Upon Ihe efforts exerted by the
several districts. Vancouver Island, the
Lower Mainland, und the Okanagan
are sparing no efforts to herald far and
wide their attractions. Is Kootenay and especially Nelson district going to sit with folded hands and pray
to  be  discovered?
Sir William Van Home once wrote a
"Tale of Two Cities," in which he compared the histories of St. Louis and
Chicago. St. Louis had a start of two
generations, central location, railway
connections In all directions before the
site of Chicugo was cleared, and a wide
waterway  to   the   Gulf  of   Mexico.    Sir
William attributed Chicago's distancing
St. Louis almost entirely to the greater enterprise of her citizens who never
tired of asserting lheir faith and holding out both liunda to welcome newcomers.
Now, Nelson has or soon will huve
abundance of power for manufacturing,
is the only feasible distributing centre
ln Kootenay, and It. has fair transportation facilities, and ln the district are
minerals, timber and fruit lands, to attract Investors, and to home makers It
can offer unrivalled scenery and climate
und  the best schools ln the province.
If It be a matter of Importance for
other cities to attract a greater population, It Is still more so to Kelson.
Our streets, sewer system, water, light
and power supplies are adequate for a
city of at least 15,000. Half thut number Is attempting to pay for their first
Cost and maintenance. The people of
Nelson are not going to contract their
expectations. They want even better
streets, parks, light nnd power than
they have now and they will get them,
itut they win only get them hy attracting more citizens. The heavy work la
done.     We   want   others   to  come  and
share the benefits and help to pay the
After more or less restrained behavior for a few days our contemporary
has made another blunder which would
be amazing from any other quarter. In
an article charging Col. Sam Hughes
with bad faith, on the evidence of Duncan Ross and Sir Wilfrid Laurler, the
following occurs:
"Tbe policy of purity is one framed
solely for the purpose of securing office,
not for practice. In practice what do
the New Brunswick toties propose to
do? They propose that all office holders under the late administration should
be dismissed. The whole application
of the vicious principle of "To the victors belong the spoils" is absolutely
inconsistent with the avowed policy of
their Dominion leader and of the tory
party's spokesmen in the commons, on
tlie platform and in the press."
The basis of this structure is that a
Conservative association in Albert
county, New Brunswick, passed a resolution favoring the dismissal of the men
appointed to the provincial civil service
by H. K. Emmerson. who represents
Albert and Westmorland counties In
the Dominion house of commons. What
local grounds there were for such action we do not pretend to know. What
we draw attention to is the fact that
this resolution of a county association
is represented as an act of the whole
Conservative  party of Canada.
We do not charge wilful misrepresentation. There is a more charitable
explanation always available for our
contemporary's misstatements.

the Cleveland home in this city. The
felicitous greetings came from all sections of the country and from men and
women in all walks of life and of all
shades  of' political  belief.
Mr. Cleveland will take no part in
the coming presidential campaign. His
intentions in this regard have been
made plain to friends who have approached him on the subject. The anti-
Bryan element among the Demoorats of
New Jersey would like to have had Mr
Cleveland go to the Deuver convention
as a delegute from this stale. Oldtinie
Democrats in New York and throughput the easl were ready to support the
plan, but Mr. Cleveland could not he

possible that the events of the coming
campaign may so shape themselves as
to bring from the ex-President a formal statement setting forth his views

making goes he must not be counted

invitation to  United States  Fleet.
Hon. Richard McBride, on behalf of
the provincial government, has requested the .Lieutenant-Governor to invite
through the proper channels the American fleet to visit Victoria and Vancouver during its stay upon the Pacific
The provincial government feels that
the occasion is fraught with considerable importance to the Pacific coast
generally and hence their action. The
government has been asked by the Vancouver authorities to take such action,
and Dr. Elliott S. Rowe, the secretary of the tourist association of that
city, waited upon the government in
that connection yesterday. The invitation will probably be conveyed through
the secretary of state at Ottawa to the
United States navy department and to
Admiral Evans.

where the fitnow is all gone and the
people are looking ahead to a great influx of settlers. The winter has been
dull but business the last two or three
weeks has increased phenomenally in
volume. While at Calgary Mr. Annable
met many old-time residents of Nelson,
among other, M. H. Vincent, who has a
tailor shop, Fred Bradley, who has a
large business, Dave Porter and Jack
Templeton, in the laundry business,
owning the largest steam laundry between Winnipeg and the coast. He met
Sam Neelands, who is preparing to return to Nelson. Altogether Mr. Annable was pleased with the prospects
of business for the coming year. He
met many who are determined to try
their fortunes in the Kootenays.
Discussing the Fight.
Everyone in the hotel corridors last
night was discussing the fight. It does
not appear to have occurred to anyone
that Roche would go down in the first
round, although all were convinced
that the battle would be won by Burns.
The latter's method of fighting was
freely discussed, and the unanimous
opinion was that he had developed tactics that had never before been tried
in the ring. The fact that Burns' first
lessons in the manly art of self-defense
were received from Bob Foster, better
known as "Old Tulip," of Victoria,
came out in the course of the discussion, and one of the debaters professed
to see in the champion's ring tactics
much that reminded him of the "Tulip's" tricks In the days when the latter met all comers and put them to
sleep with his left hook. Indeed it was
pointed out that the blow that knocked
Roche out, was just such another blow
as Foster delivered to Walsh at Montreal in 1884, and which put an end to
the latter's aspirations to become
world's champion.
A Lost Mine.
In quest of an ancient Spanish silver
mine in the neighborhood of the Koksi-
lah river, William Irivine, an old prospector, and his son, Charles, will start
out from Victoria late in April or early in the approaching month of May.
For Mr. Irvine believes that a mine of
surpassing richness lies forgotten with
its entrance blocked by tree trunks
and decaying vegetation and the very
trail which the hidalgoes or their menials wore in passing from their quarters
to the shaft, obliterated. Mr. Irvine
while engaged in survey work upon the
island some years ago stumbled upon
the entrance to the mine. He brought
away with him a piece of almost virgin silver, and carefully marked the
place. Though on two separate occasions, once in 1897 and once since then
he has sought to find the entrance, his
memory refused to play the "open sesame," and on each occasion he has
returned emptey handed. He is more
hopeful of success upon his projected
trip. Mr. Irvine has done a great deal
of prospecting ln Alaska, and has the
mining fever. He is confident that the
mine, the entrance to which sloped inward Into the base of a hill, is a souvenir of the Spanish occupation, and
that it is rich.

after the interests of his company, he
found time to visit several public places
and deliver short addresses on the
ethics of Journalism and incidentally to
express his opinion of The Daily Canadian, which was not flattering to this
paper. He ls a genuine type of a fresh
advance agent, and If he be the author
of some of the advance notices now appearing ln the napers, he cannot lay
reasonable claim to being well Informed as to the cast of famous opera companies In yea!s gone by. The Dally
Canadian does not desire to gain the
good opinion of Mr. Burnham, but It
would advise his employers to curb his
propensity for talking too freely ln
public places. Fresh advance agents
are an abomination and have done
much to brimc the theatrical bUBlnesB
Into bad  repute  In  British  Columbia.
