First Signs of Substantial Improvement
for Yeara���Mines, Timber and
Fruit Lands.
(Special to Tha Dally Canadian.)
Slocan. May 9��� The flrst real signs
of revival In the Slocan for seven yeara
are apparent now. Thc long depression
has resulted generally In either of two
things, as far as mining Is concerned:
either economic mining on a small scale
hy lessees, or the passing of property
Into the hands of strong companiea.
The mining outlook Ib certainly far
more encouraging now than for many
years past.
Hm mining Is now only one of Slo-
can's resources. Thc lumbering Industry Ib only beginning on the lake but It
Is certain to be a very Important factor
In the development of the district within a year.
Slocan lake ts rapidly coming to tlie
front also as a fruit district. While
there Is not as much land available
along the shores as there ls on Kootenay lake, yet what there Is, Is* unsurpassed anywhere, while the uninterrupted transportation by boat and roll
adds greatly to Ub attractiveness.
The lake from a scenic point is tbe
most beautiful on the continent, and Its
snow-capped mountains and glaciers
supply numerous large creeks and
streams which run all year round. The
climate Ib such that no Irrigation la
necessary for fruit growing.
Mr. Harris' rsnch between Silverton
and New Denver ls a splendid example
of what can be done by a few years' Industry. The lake lands have not up to
the present been boomed like other portions of Ihe Koolonays owing to tho j
fact that up to the present speculators'
have been unable to purchase ln ihnt
vicinity, as nearly all the land has been
held for a considerable time by pro-
omptors and purchasers from the government.
The Slocan river valley also contalus
magnificent land which Is already pretty well known to Investors.

Tbe board of trade meeting last night
Included many interesting and important features. First was the presence
and parUcipatlon of Mr. Richard Grlgg,
special commissioner of His Majesty's
Uoard of Trade, charged with the duty
of collecting accurate Information about
Oanada for the commercial intelligence
-department of the board.
The board complied with the recent
request of the 20,000 Club to the extent
of allocating the trifling salary, $20 a
moulh, paid to its secretary, to tbe club,
ou condition thut such routine work
as collecting membership fees and Issuing notices be performed for tbe board
by the club secretary. Uut the preaent
secretary of the board, S. M. Brydges,
while willingly foregoing the insignifi-
eaiit enumeration for his services, will
continue to act as secretary in all Important matters. The sphere of tbe
board of triuH- ls an important one and
quite distinct from tbat of the 20,000
Club. Such amalgamation as was suggested by some, was considered Impossible.
An Important communication from
the English Head Masters' Conference,
asking for assistance in placing English
public school boys on the land In British Columbia, was presented to tbe
board by Mr. Baird of tbe high school
A committee was appointed to take
up the question of more and better
hotel  accommodations for Nelson.
The board met at 8:30 with F. A.
Starkey in the chair, others present being S. M. Brydges, J. M. Lay, W. G.
Gillett, D. C. McMorris, R. S. Lennie,
W. W. Beer, T. G. Procter, J. Johnstone, T. Morley, C. W. Busk, A. W.
Dyer, M. H. Farrer, E. F. Gigot, Mr.
Langan and J. L. Buchan.
The minutes of tbe last regular meeting aud a special meeting were read and
Mayor Gillett reported that the petition for letter collection boxes was
nearly completed and would be forwarded In a few days.
For the committee on Insurance
rates, W. G. Gillett reported having
gathered information, which was given
In confidence. He was taking the matter up with the companies.
The Canadian Marble & Granite
Works, Ltd., was elected to membership without ballot.
A letter from J. A. Acland, private
secretary to the acting premier, acknowledged receipt ot telegrams.
A letter from the Cranbrook board ot
trade asked co-operation in effort to
end the coal miners' strike. It had been
already acknowledged.
Capt  McMorris  asked  If the board
proposed  to appoint the secretary of
the 20,000 Club secretary of Uie board.
T. G. Procter urged that the change
be made.
3. M. Ilrydges, secretary, declared
himself ready to vacate the office.
The president suggested that the accounts of tbe board be audited and
that Mr. Brydges be retained as honorary secretary, the routine work attached to the position to be performed
by the secretary of the 20,000 Club.
A motion by Capt. McMorris to that
effect was adopted.
The secretary was instructed to huve
an auditor's report prepared for the
next meeting.
W. J. Baird, who was present at the
president's request, rend a letter from
Professor Hutton, of Toronto university, forwarding a communication from
tho pngllsh head masters' conference to
send out English public school boys to
work on fruit farms at $10 a month and
J. Johnstone welcomed the suggestion
but thought the mailer of boarding
would be found a difficulty. It was decided that fuller Information should be
sought   beforo   nny action  should   be
Tho   president   then   Introduced   R.
*   '    for   the   British
bourd of trade, who was heartily welcomed.
Mr. Grlgg explained that hla, mission
to Canada was to gather detailed information about Canada for the British
government, especially for the commercial intelligence department of
II. M. board of trade.
He told of the appointment of a commission, of which Lord Strathcona Is a
member, to devise means for obtaining
information. He was appointed by that
commission and was coached for hia
duties by Lord Strathcona.
He sold: "If Canada can raise meu
like Lord Strathcona, wheat auch as I
have seen in yonr Northwest, and fruit
such ai those of Kootenay,' lt .will command tbe respect and admiration of
tbe world."
Continuing Mr. Grlgg told of hla visits
to chambers of commerce tn the chief
clUea of Britain. His instructions are
to study especially trade openlnga especially direcUona in which such trade
may be Increased.
He ls also aaked to nominate resident
agenta ln Canada to do work similar to
that of tbe commercial consuls ot Germany and tbe United States, to correspond with the commercial and intelligence department of H. M. board of
trade. The centres where such agents
are to be appointed are Halifax, SL
John, Quebec, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Hamilton, Winnipeg and Vancouver.
He praised the Canadian preferential
tariff which be aald was a solid pecuniary advantage aa well as an indication
of sentiment. But he was awar. that
American imports Into Canada were
still Increasing at a much faster rate
than British imports.
Mr. Grlgg remarked on tbe powers
of assimilation already shown by
Canada. He thought the first large -collected imputation ln Canada would be
on the Inland plains. He was delighted
with the climate and the natural beauty
of llritiBh Columbia and its potential
resources In minerals, timber and fruit
lauds. He thought the movement of
successful farmers from the prairies to
British Columbia would continue.
He foresaw great wealth and prosperity for all Canada.
Tbe close of Mr. Grlgg's address was
greeted with prolonged and hearty applause.
Mr. Grlgg then asked for any information or suggestions that members of the
board cared to offer.
He was told by T. G. Procter and A.
W. Dyer that in the matter of machinery the Americans sent experts with
their goods and advertised assiduously.
A vote of approval ot Mr. Grlgg's mission, and of thanks to him, moved by
J. M. Lay, seconded by James Johnstone, was unanimously adopted.
James Johnstone raised the question
of hotel accommodation, which he
thought required immediate attention.
T, G. Procter agreed.
On motion of Mr. Johnstone a committee waa appointed to Investigate and
report. The chairman appointed Messrs.
Johnstone, Procter and Gillett.
Members were Invited to remain and
confer with Mr. Grlgg. The board then
adjourned. .

Joint Commission of Manitoba and Al
berta'About to Sit at All Con-
venlent   Centres.
Edmonton, May 10.���The beef commission bas finally taken shape. A preliminary meeting to arrange details will
be held at Medicine Hat on the 13th
of May.
Of the tour provinces wblch first signified their intention to Investigate this
question, only two are standing by their
flrst convictions, namely Manitoba and
Alberta. ...    t.-
Sittings of the commission will- be
held at various places throughout the
two provinces to hear evidence from the
producer, the dealer, the transporter
and the consumer, and any others from
whom Information mny be derived.
In the choice of places for these sittings, the object will be to distribute
tbem as well as possible, so as to cover
lbe whole ot the Interested territory,
nnd give the commissioners an opportunity to -hear evidence from every district affected, it ls probable that the
following places in Alberta, will be
chosen: Medicine Hat, Lethbrldge, MacLeod, Plncher Creek, High River, Calgary, Innisfail, Lacombe, Edmonton and
Vermilion. If thore are other places
which feel that their districts should
be favored with a sitting It would be
well for them to inform the minister of
agriculture, Edmonton, and the request
will be considered.
Grlgg, commissioner
Los Angeles, May 10.���Hugo Kelly,
the Chicago middleweight, and Jack
(Twin) Sullivan, who are to meet in the
main bout tonight at the Pacific Athletic
Club, have finished their work of preparation and appear to be in good shape
for the contest. The bout Is announced
us being for the middleweight championship, and the articles call for 20
rounds at 168 pounds. As the date for
the mill approached public Interest haB
increased.to a considerable degree and
the club expects a large crowd at the
Ottawa, May 10.���The record of
scandalous Jobs by wblch Liberal "heel-
era" were enriched at the country's expense during tbe last year Is not yet
half told.
A dredging Inspector appointed by political Influence against tbe advice of
the district engineer bas confessed that
be received $3 a day to give his whole
time to inspection, while he fanned out
bis Job at $1.25 per day to another government Inspector, who also received
$3 per day from tbe government to
give his whole Ume to Inspecting other
operations. The first mentioned inspector also put in and collected a bill for
boat hire, giving the alleged name and
certificate of the boat, whereaa the boat
waa his wife's canoe, the name he gave
was hers before marriage, and he used
the canpe to take orders from the
dredge crew for supplies from the shop
In which be was clerk.
A partial exposure was that of the
sub-target machine contract. In which
the contracting company was organized
by the distribution of $500,000 ln shares,
in lots ot 25,000 and 50,000, among officers and politicians, including aome
very close personal frieujs ot the minister of militia.
Mr. Strabbe, the Montreal contractor
who figured ln laat year's exposures,
was to the front again this year as having received an extra 10 cents a barrel
on 6,000 or 6,000 barrels of cement supplied by contract to the government.
Thia allowance was claimed because
Mr. Fielding after the contract was
made, added 10 cents to the cement
duty, and the extra amount waa given
though the cement was made ln Canada
and the manufacturers did not increase
the price to Strubbe.
The record of this session's exposures Includes three Intercolonial land
deals. Following the Moncton operation
of the previous year, ln which Matthew
Lodge bought $5,075 worth of land and
immediately turned It over to the government for $13,880, there ls a similar
but less profitable deal in which the government paid $10,490 for  land  which
Lodge had bought for $8,300, including
his legal expenses.   In the Truro deal
the government paid $11,600 for a block
of land currently supposed to be worth
less than half thla sum.    The middleman  in this case seems to  have  received 18 or 20 building lota and a considerable sum of money as his rake-off.
Tbe Halifax land deal amounted to
the purchase for $46,000 ot certain lots
of land which the middleman had just
before bought for $18,753.   One ot tbe
partners In this operation, on which 142
per cent, profit was made, is a member
of the Nova Scotia legislature and ot
the provincial government, and Ib the
owner ot the government organs tn St.
John and Halifax.   Incidentally It was
shown that the lawyer who acted for the
department of Justice in the transaction
made good earnings out of it.   It was
also disclosed that he bas been taking
a commission out ot the government taw
business done ln tbe province by ether
lawyers.   Some strictures of the Hall-
fax Herald on Ills share of the transaction led this lawyer to sue the paper
and a Halifax jury found against him.
This Is a partial list of the matters
disclosed during the session just completed.   It might be enlarged by mentioning other similar transactions, or by
tracing as far as possible those in whleb
exposure was blocked by exclusion of
evidence and refusal to furnish Information.   The custom of making profit out
of the government has spread to some
of the less Important officials, half a
dozen of whom ln one branch of the
service were found to have conspired
together to make out bogus expense accounts, supported by falsehood and forgery, whereby they swindled the Immigration department out of an amount
nearly equal to their salaries.   The accountants under Mr. Oliver were ignorant of the fact until thetr attention was
called to it by the auditor general's department
yers and politicians, to newspapers and
to persona who bad nothing to do with
the construction of the railway.
Nevertheless the department of railways and the department of Justice approved the bills. After discussion with
the department of finance which ralaed
objections, the Orand Trunk withdrew
the claim and afterwards sent In an account for a little less than half the
money.   Thla alao was not paid.
When the public accounts committee
undertook to Investigate the whole
transaction It was found that the dla-
puted bill had been removed and no
copy was to be obtained. The Grand
Trunk auditor who was summoned went
off to the Mediterranean. His assistant said he knew nothing about the
account except that he had been ordered to destroy the papers. All attempts
on the part of the members of the oommlttee to obtain a copy, which could
have been made up from the Orand
Trunk hooka, waa frustrated by the ministers and their supporters, who declared that It was no business of the committee or the country what accounts
were presented to the government and
not paid. It ta understood that these
unspecified Items of some fifty thousand
dollars Included money spent by the
Grand Trunk company In obtaining the
Grand Trunk Pacific contract and securing the aubaequent legislation. If
Ibis Is so tbe matter ls of aome concern
to the country. In any case when a blli
for a million dollara ls presented to the
government and five-sixths ot It paid,
the country hu the right to know the
details of the whole bill. But no doubt
tbe ministers had the best of reasons
for shutting out thla inquiry.
The other Instance is that of the
North AtlanUc Trading company which
has received a third of a million dollar*,
for pretending to send Immigrants to
Canada who would have come Just aa
fast without It.
Following the example of last year
the government again refused to allow
it own officers to make known to the
Agriculture and Colonisation committees the names of the contractors and
who got the money.
Both ln the case ot the Grand Trunk
Pacific and tbat of the Trading company
appeal was taken to the House and the
majority supported the government in
refusing Information.

that a jury will be secured by Friday

A few Illustrations show how some Inquiries are made futile by governmont
interference. The Grand Trunk put ln
a bill for $960,000, on which the government guarantee wn�� demanded as the
cost of construction of the prairie section of the transcontinental. It wns
found by the government auditor tbat
for $160,000 of this amount there were
no particulars, or that the details showed payments for otber than construction
purposes.   Payments were made to law-
Montreal, May 10.���William Stltt;
general passenger agent of the C. P. R.
and George McL. Brown, general passenger agent of the Canadian Pacific
steamship line have returned to Montreal from Washington fairly well satis-
fled from the interview they have had
with the authorities there that the
change ln the immigration law of the
Uni*.ed Statea will be carried Into effect
at a minimum of inconvenience to Canadian travellers.
The C. P. R. officials were accompanied by J. H. Clart, United State* immigration commissioner here, who Introduced them to J. P. Sargent, commissioner of immigration at Washington and Secretary Strauss, of the department of commerce and labor.
Tbe government officials seemed anxious to meet the views of the transportation companies. Mr. SUtt saya that
under the draft agreements which were
submitted for consideration by the representatives of the American government there will be no more Inconvenience to the ordinary traffic than there la
today. The new law impose* a tax ot
$4 per head on immigrant* entering the
country, and the regulations make the
transportation companies responsible
for the payment. This practically means
that the railway and steamship companies of Canada will be collecting
agenta tor the United State* government. They will collect the bead tax
when they aell tickets to Immigrant* for
point* ln the United States.

MAY IO. 1907.
it is hardly a year and a half since
liberal government was returned to
wet in Britain with a following that
included more than three-fourths of tho
membership of the House of Commons.
It Is not yet agreed in Hritain to what
particular issue their huge majority was
due. Undoubtedly the Education Hill of
1902 united Nonconformists against the
Conservatives, the misrepresentation or
"Chinese slavery" in South Africa���
airily dismissed by Winston Churchill
oh "inexactitudes of terminology,,���certainly contributed. The Taff Vale decision aud the neglect of Mr. Halfour to
restore to labor unions the class privileges they had previously enjoyed, converted organized labor for the time into
a Uberal machine. The investigation
of the war office although it proved tliat
great progress bad been made towards
efficiency within the last few years, disclosed conditions that were disturbing to
British complacency and some one had
to be sacrificed. Aud who but thc government of the day?
Cut above all other issues before the
people of the United Kingdom the triumphant Liberals claimed that their so
decisive victory- was won for Free
Trade. "Free Trade" is, under the circumstances, nearly as ridiculous an expression as "Free Food," but it derives
some sanction from 60 years of abuse.
Any country can declare for free imports, but free trade requires at least
two parties.
But already it is doubtful if a ma
jorlty of the voters of the United Kingdom would reject a proposal even for
an Import duty on food stuffs. Mr.
Chamberlain, the first champion ln Hritain of preferential treatment of colonial producers, fs still unable to return
to the political world, but Arthur Halfour, whom the many responsibilities of
leadership prevented from Joining the
crusade at flrst. has since made It an
integral part of his party's programme,
and has declared his conviction that its
triumph will not be long delayed.
Mr. lialfour has publicly acknowledged the benefit and the inspiration of
Canada in the matter and calls upon his
own oountry to reciprocate. It Bhould
not, of course, be forgotten that it was
Sir Charles Tupper who first advocated
preferential treatment of Hritain ln the
Canadian tariff. Had he been returned
to power in 16% the preference would
have been much more substantial than
it Is.
We do not believe that special trade
relations are essential to preserve loyalty in the colonies or that they will
greatly stimulate it. Hut there can be
no doubt that a preference to colonial
gr_.in growers would be so great and
so obvious an advantage that emigrants
from the Hritish Isles would no longer
stray from beneath the folds of the
Union Jack.
It seems to be taken for granted that
Lord Strathcona will soon retire from
the post of High Commissioner, and
speculation Is rife as to who will be his
Sir Frederick Horden has been frequently mentioned, evidently with the
idea of testing public opinion on Buch
an appointement. The suggestion cannot be said to have met with favor in
any quarter. It Is too obvious that Sir
Frederick's only qualiflciation for the
London post is that his usefulness at
Ottawa is gone, if, indeed, it ever existed.
The position of High Commissioner
was created in 1883 and ho far has only
had two incumbents, Sir Charles Tupper till 1896, and Lord Strathcona from
that time to the present Both men
have filled the offlce with credit to
themselves and the country, and have
been able to render useful service.
The proposal to give continuity and
permanency to the Imperial Conference
makes a distinct change In the functions
of the High Commissioner, and attaches
to the offlce duties which no man of 87
years however vigorous and public
spirited should be asked to perform.
There ls no good reason for making
the position merely a reward for party
service; nor should it he considered
that only members of the present Dominion cabinet are eligible.    The in-
cumbent of the office should be thoroughly familiar with Canada from East
to West, should be in thorough sympathy with the changing views of the
relations between the mother country
and the colonies, and should also be
a worthy representative of the best
there is In Canada.
The name that occurs first in a canvass for eligible appointees is lhat uf
Sir Sandford Fleming. Hut Sir Sandford
Is only seven years younger than Lord
Strathcona and could not fulfill the
duties of the offlce for long.
The necessity for more hotel accommodations iu Nelson has been patent
for several years, in fuct, since the revival of prosperity began in 1905. Every
gathering lu Nelsou emphasizes the
need. It is imperative that something be
done at once, by a syndicate of local
capitalists if outsiders cannot be interested. .Nelson has already attracted a
great deal of attention aud has become
a very popular convention city. Tbe
ouly point in the province with any advantage over Nelson In accessibility is
Revelstoke, and Revelstoke has nothing
of Nelson's natural beatuy has nothing
enjoyment. Hut Nelson cannot continue inviting conventions while the city
has not adequate hotel accommodations
for them.
The announcement that objections to
the weekly half-holiday for clerks during the summer months are being withdrawn Is welcome news. It has often
been remarked In the past that the people of Nelson appreciate the advantages nature has given them and show
their -appreciation by enjoying them on
all possible occasion, The reputation
Is worth having and nothing will help to
preserve lt more than tbe weekly closing of places of business while owners
and employees take rest and recreation.
The mission of R. Grlgg, commissioner of the commercial intelligence department of His Majesty's board of
trade, cannot fail to be productive of
great benefit both to Hritain and Canada. We are sure that all who had the
privilege of meeting Mr. Grlgg will
agree that no one could be better quail-
fled for the performance of his duties.

Grand Forks. May 10.���Probably the
most valuable timber limits ever staked
in the Boundary district have just been
taken up by R. A. Brown who has just
located five miles square of yellow pine
timber. This valuable location Is some
five miles up Cedar creek from the
Kettle river. Mr. Brown has known the
location of this timber for years, but
kept quiet about it until this spring and
until there was a ready demand for
timber, when he made the location. This

likely be considerable bear hunting In
this district during the next few weeks,
already several parties are being organized. E. R. Knight, a successful bear

Way Found Through  Maine Courtt to
Sell  Liquor at Will.
BanKnr, Me., May 10.���Ilangor whole-
Hale llijiior dealers are having no trouble circumventing the prohibitory law.
When a man wants to do a wholeaalo
liquor buslnesH, Instead of having elaborate "hides" constructed and bringing
In his goods secretly by night, or by
roundabout routes, he forum an "express company" and does business In
the open. Under a decision of the supreme court, liquors In transit are not
subject lo seizure, and upon this safe
foundation the numerous companleB
aro Btundlng prosperously and triumphantly.
The schemer easily finds two dummy
stockholders, or Incorporators, the law
requiring at least three, and with them
forms an express company, with president, secretary and trasurer, all of
which offices he usually fills himself.
Then, having paid the fee of Incorporation, and filed his certificate in tbe offlce of the secretary of slate, he hangs
out a sign and watts for business.
A man conies In and asks to have a
case of beer bought for him ln Boston,
the express company acting as purchasing agent as well as furnishing transportation, The express official says, "All
right, we'll get It���but here'B a case of
beer lhat we have bought for Mr.
Blank, and as he's in no hurry, you
can bave it if you like, and we'll get
another for him."
That strikes the customer as a good
plan, and he gets his beer right off. Incidentally, tt might bo mentioned that
it makes no difference what a customer
culls for���If he wanted a barrel of
whisky there would be a barrel right
there ordered for some one who waa
In no hurry for il. and he could have it
carted away at once. Bangor haa five
or six express companies, two having
been organized within a week.
Can the Custom Tailor Retain Hla Buaineaa Without Improving
Hia Methoda.
The future looks dark for the merchant tailor. In tne new provinces of
Canada, in years gone by, a custom
tailor could open a shop in a small
town and soon be busy with orders for
M0 and $50 suits. Tbo whole field Is
occupied by the Semi-ready tailoring
with the same suite at |20, $25 and $30,
and each Semi-ready Btore now carries
a lot of sample worsteds and fine tweeds
from which special orders are taken,
thc exact measurements, with height,
weight, and physique type being sent
to the Semi-ready shops ln Montreal.
"This beats me," satd a merchant
tailor of Coleman, B. C, and forthwith
he sent and secured the Semt-ready
agency. "They make the Biilt in five
day, finished, complete.' In towns of
6,000 In the West, there are not over
two or three custom tailor shops, and
these muBt soon go the way of the almost forgotten custom bootshops.

Performance In Aid of Fire Hall Fund
a Wild 8ucceaa.
(Special to The Dally Canadian.)
Moyle, May 7.���Moyle has now a flro
brigade and will soon have a thoroughly
equipped, new flre hall. Every citizen
of Moyle, male and female, old and
young, is Interested in It, and no request on Its behalf for time, money, or
work, ls ever refused by auy one.
Last night, Monday, a local minstrel
company, which was organized specially for the purpose about two months
ago and haa been practising diligently
ever since, gave Its performance, and
cleared $150 for the good cause.
The performance was an unlimited
success. Messrs. Kamm, White and the
Stewart brothers were the end men, and
their local hits will long be remembered, They would not be very Interesting to an outsider, but there was not
a resident of Moyie who was spared���
and all of course ln perfect good nature.
Mr. Kamm's Bongs were particularly admired. His rich voice, scorning the
conventionalities of mere music, nearly
brought down the house.
All the mlnBtreis' "get-ups" were mag-
niflcent, and there ls a considerable demand ln Moyie for corks, matches, shoe-
blacking and Btove-pollsh.

Berlin, May 10,���The vice chancellor
In the Reichstag today expressed apprehension that the agreement with the
United States at many points did not
fulfil the hopes entertained by the
Oermany hoped that further negotiations would lead to a more just recognition of her claims. The United Stales
should remember that Oermany was
among Its best customers. The agreement was eventually referred to a committee which is expected to report In
a few days.

Visitors From  Spokane Parade  Nelson
and Then Banquet.
Nelson was entertained last evening
by a visit of the D. O. K. K. KI JMabarraz
Temple, No. 92, of Spokane, Wash. The
visiting Knights arrived on the S. S.
Kuskanook, at 7:15 p. m., and when
the boat pulled Into the city wharf their
band played the national anthem. Upon
landing they were welcomed by a large
crowd of grand lodge delegates as well
Knights, who, led by O. C. Wm. Irvine,
gave them three hearty cheers. At
8:45 p. m. a procession was formed at
the opera house headed by the "Koyal
Vizier" and the band; following the
band were two wagoiiB upon which were
placed cages. Inside these cages were
Knights Geo. M. Johnson, J. Macdonald,
G. Nf, Gunn and Gus Erlckson, captured
and charged with attempting to steal
the "Prairie Queen" and with attempting to poison the "Kiwakawhee." Whilst
these captives were being placed in
their cages, P. C. Wightman, who was
in attendance outside the opera house,
was seized by the votaries and without
ceremony put in the cage with the last
two mentioned. The balance of the procession whs made up by a large number of D. O. K. K.'s, and was finished
with a long chain of "captives" securely
tied so that they could not escape. They
were goaded on from time to time by a
little red "devil," much to the amusement of the crowds watching. After
the captives (many of whom were prominent K. of IVbj had been pur ailed
through the city they were escorted to
the opera house, where they received
the "tortures" and "penalties" for their
crimes. At the conclusion of these proceedings the entire company adjourned
to the Grand Central hutel where an excellent  banquet  was sorved.
