University of  Michigan  Hopefuls Wreck

and  Firemen.
Anu Arbor, Mich., March IT���Twenty-
two University of Michigan .students
spent lust night iu juil and tlie Starr
theatre was thoroughly wrecked, as the
result of a riot of studeuts last evening
which lasted until nearly one o'clock
this morning, ihe moving picture machine und the Lhcatre piano were
broken to pieces.
Trouble started Saturday night in a
dispute between a student named
Kaiuni, from Kentucky, and Reynolds,
the proprietor of the theatre. Sonic
one whistled while the performance was
In progress aud Kainm was ordered to
leave the place. He got up at once to
.cave thu building aud he struck Manager Reynold* iu the face. AL this juncture a special policeman in the emplo>
of the theatre took Mr. Reynolds' part

wound on the student by a blow with
his baton. Rumors of the affair circulated among (he students Suuduy anu
iesterday with the result thai some of
Lhe bolder apirita among the students
planned to make reprisals against the
theatre manager.
Last night a crowd was formed to
riot the Star theatre. When the procession reached the theatre fully two
thousand men were in line who had
joined. A crash announced tbe opening of the attack as one of lhe collegians hurled a brick through a front
window of the theatre and from that
moment the riot began. The windows
not only of the Star theatre but of the
adjoining buildings were shattered by
fusilades of rooks and the students
finally attacked the building in "rush"
formation and practically tore out the
front. The police were powerless, tbe
students jeering at the officers and
stealing their helmets for souvenirs,
and the tire department was summoned
to drench the crowd, tho boys ran away
with 1000 feet of hose. When the hose
was recovered the chairman of the
board of tire commissioners ordered
the (Iremen to return to their stations
declaring  no one had any  right to call
out the firemen for such duty.

Report of Fair Progress on Power

The first division or the year iu the

the request lor u gram ot *&uu and .fiiO
monthly to the Publicity Bureau. Aldermen Procter and Patenuude tavored
granting it, the mayor and Aldermen
.dcAlorris, Kerr, Steed aud Haie opposed.
The meeting came to order at eight
o'clock, a meeting ot Uie nuance coiu-
tiiittee having preceded it. The mayor
and all tlie aldermen were present. The
minutes of the lust meeting were read
aud   adopted. .
There were no reports from committees. The mayor reported a visit
to the power plant by himself and Aid.
Procter on Saturday. They found all
the work going loi ward very satisfactorily. The weir was completed to the
end ol tbe first unit und the work m
Uie wheel pit was well begun. Mr.

weir completed by last night. A week
or mote must bo allowed for the installation of the draught tube und hardening of Lhe cement.
Aid. Procter also expressed satisfaction  with the work.
it. A. iirown, who had just arrived
from the plant, reported some trouble
w.tu loose rock, but that the work ou
the weir would be unished by Wednesday.
la reply to Aid. Procter Mr. Brown
said tbat he thought the whole work
would be finished by Wednesday, March
���Juth. Another week or ten days must
be allowed for the settling of the cement.
E. A. Crease, by invitation, addressed
the council on behalf of the public
library. He stated that the annual
grant was essential to Uie maintenance
of the library, that the library is meeting a public want, and its attendance
and use by ttie public is increasing, and
that it is conducted as economically as
Rev. J. T. Ferguson stated that tne
library contains 1,100 volumes. Us
chief expenses are salaries, rent and
purchase of books.
Aid. McMorris thought the visitors
to the reading room should contribute
something  to   its   support.
.Mr. Crease remarked that the room
tiad been a great boon durlug the last
winter to the unemployed in the city,
many of whom had no other place to
read or even to sit in comfort.
Rev. Mr. Ferguson, as president, presented a request lor $500. To the
mayor's "What is the least you will acy
cept?" Mr. Ferguson said at least $350
was  absolutely   needed.
Inquiry by Aid. Hale revealed that
the $;.5o grunted last year was paid iu
January of this year.
A grant of $;t&0 wus passed payable
half ou May HHh, Uie balance on Nev.
The deputation thanked tlie council
und  withdrew.
Dr. Wolverton, W. Q, Gillett, and
.lames Johnstone representing J. .NT
Lay, were present on behalf of the
Publicity   Bureau.
Dr. Wolverton urged that Nelson aa
a community must advertise because
all other cities are doing so and Nelson
cannot afford lo remain unknown. He
regretted an impression In some quur-
ters that the Institution aimed to bring
in laborers especially to reduce wages.
He also commented on the attack on
the bureau as of benefit solely for real
estate men. He asserted that enterprising real estate men were responsible for the growth of every city in
Canada that Is growing. Eloven firms
bad spent, last year $27,432.25 ln advertising Nelson.
Dr. Wolverton also urged that the
only way In which tuxes in Nelson can
ho reduced Is hy increasing the number
of tax-payers, thus muUlng the burden
on each less. He also read the petition
of 183 business Brail, endorsed by the
board of trade unnulmously.
Dr. Wolverton said that the promoters of the bureau had reduced their request to a minimum, and asked for $500
und $50 per mouth. They were confident that the necessary balance could
be raised. As au alteruative proposal,
the bureau would turn over its assets,
worth over $1,000, if Uie city would assume its liabilities, about $500.
James Johnstone, us a tax-payer, submitted that only the growth due directly to publicity work had euubled the
city to nourish Iu spite of the closing
down of the smelter, the idleness of
most of tne mines, aud ot the suwmills.
Ex-Mayor Gilletl added his appeal lor
support and urged that the city could
not afford lo neglect advertising, lie
said that pructicudy every city that had
no puollcity bureau issues a pamphlet
once a year. Nelson has beeu spared
tnai expense.
To Uie mayor, Mr. Uillett said that
the appeal tu lust yeur's council fiad
come very late, it had come ouly from
the aiu/iou cluu and was not eudorsed
by the board ol trade nor supported by
a petition.
-wd. Procter spoke on behalf of the
publicity bureau's request, and moved
that the grant asked for be given and
that the council appoint members to
represent them on the board. Aid.
Paienaude seconded the motion.
Aid. iverr asked how many tax-payers signed the petition.
The mayor said he believed in advertising the city and personally would
contribute to its support. But he pointed out that last year $47,000 had been
raised in taxation, Uiis year $58,000 was
required. He thought that Uie operation of the tramway, improvement of
streets, wharfs and parks was a large
contribution to advertising. He thought
the sum asked could really make no
difference. He waa against the grant.
Aid. Procter returned to the charge.
He thought it a disgrace that Nelson
still owed $500 for a publication by
which all  benefitted.
Aid. Steed concurred with the mayor.
He thought the expenditure unjustified
in the present stale of the city's finances.
Aid. Hale u>"k the same ground.
Aid.   P.ode- tuimitted   the   financial
embarrassment   of   the   city   but  urged
that  the only  way  out  was  by  efforts
to promote its growth.
The mayor said that Nelson was not
embarrassed. Its debt is mainly for
paying utilities, all except about $90,000,
and the city has $80,000 in sinkiug fund.
Personally he would contribute as much
as any one.
Aid. Pateuaude thought the amount
asked, $1,100 would be more than returned.
Aid. McMorris pointed out that only
88 resident tax-payers out of 600 had
signed the petition. He felt that he
must vote against the motion.
The motion was put and lost, only
the mover and seconder supporting it.
Dr. Wolverton thanked Uie council
for courteous consideration. The mayor
thanked the deputation for their
businesslike   presentation.
A letter from G. F. MoUon asked
for compensation for goods damaged
by the bursting of a pipe. It was referred to Uie city solicitor.
A letter to Aid. Procter from the NelBon Iron Works complained that machinery was not being bought by tender, also that they had been charged
more than their competitors for power.
The city clerk stated that the Becond
complaint  was unfounded.
R. A. Brown stated that the ftrBt complaint also was unfounded. To Aid.
Hale he said that the Kootenay Kngin
eering Works might be getting orders
from the Allis-Chalmers-Bullock company.
It was agreed that ln nil departments
competing prices should be asked.
The mayor regretted that such letters should reach tlie council based on
misinformation, when the facts could
easily be learned from the city clerk.
It was not fair to city officials who are
criticized  by  Implication.
Bylaw No. 182. the civic salaries bylaw, wan then reconsidered, finally passed and adopted.
The mayor stated that on account of
unavoidable delay he had felt obliged
to extend to March 24th the option to
Aemlllus .larvln on the school debentures. There Is every prospect of a
satisfactory sale.
A request from .1. H. Royes to be
heard was then considered, and grant
Mr. Boyei then repeated his claim
made to last year's council, nnd dls
missed hy them, and also once by this
year's council. He claimed to be treated as a permanent official, not as a day
laborer, nnd to he paid to January 16th.

The matter was laid over to the next

Dublin, Marcli 17.���Jem Koche, the
cnanipion Heavyweight pugilist ot Ire-
laud, aud Touiuiy-Burns, now generally
recognized as tlie cnamuion ol America, are to tl^ut tweuiy rounds or letib
tor the interuatiouai cuampionuuip at
the Theater Koyai in this city this
evening. Tne nTaicu has aroused m-
lense iuteiest in sporting Circles anu
seats aie soiling at a.most labuious prices.
Both men are reported in the plnit
ot condition. The tiubroKen line ot victories won by liurns since he crossed
the Atlautic aud the easy manner in
which he disposed of Gunner Moir and
tbe best heavyweights now lighting in
England has naturally made his chances well thought of In his match with
Koche. liui the Irish nghter has a'
strong local following who have shown
an Inclination to put up some real
money  to back their judgment.
Koche Is regarded as) the best nghter
Ireland has produced in recent years.
He Is a hard hitter and extremely fast.
He weighs 134 pounds, is five feet ten
Inches tall, and is one of the few fighters outside of America who uses his
feet when boxing. But Burns outclasses Roche in one essential thing. This
is his greater experience in the ring
and his thorough knowledge of the scientific points of the fighting game. In
the opinion of most unbiassed critics
here this excellence will win the fight
for   the   plucky   Canadian.
Ireland has never taken greater interest in any sporting event than It Is
manifesting In the fight today between
Tommy Burns and Jem Roche for the
heavy championship of the world.
It has practically overshadowed the
other St. Patrick's Day celebration ln
Dublin at least. This Intense Interest
arises mainly because this Is the first
time in years that an Irishman has
fought in this country for the championship. There is also a deep seated feeling that Roche will be able to wrench
the honors from his Canadian opponent.
The odds of three to one that are being
offered by the Burns supporters are not
a good sign of the Irish feeling for most
of the betting Is ln small amounts at
two to one which the bookmakers are
relaying at the larger figure.
Both fighters are In DubMn. Roche
declines to discuss his prospects of
winning, but great confidence is felt ln
his camp. On the other hand Burns
says he can see no chance of his being
defeated. Burns will enter the ring at
ins pounds and Roche will be a few
pounds heavier, otherwise there Is little
difference between them. Burns, advantage In reach amounts to only one
Inch, while Roche's chest and leg
measurements are slightly In excess of
liurns'. P. Watson will referee the fight.
Burns will be seconded by Billy Nelll.
.1. Clnrk nnd J. Kelly. The ring will be
16 foot square and this Roche's backers
claim will be to his advantage. This Is
taken to Indicate that the Irishman's
battle will be a defensive one. Burns,
since his arrival over here, has developed a most useful short left which he
will use considerably If there Is any in-

that It Is Impossible to substitute any
other vessel ln the C. P. R.'s coasting
service on the run except the Princess Royal. For this season, while the
Princess Victoria is laid off for an overhauling for a few days, the Princess
Royal will be taken off the Seattle run
and go  on  the  Vancouver run.
At the same time the Princess Beatrice will take the run to Seattle.
The need of the new palatial steamer
which is being built in England to alternate with the Princess Victoria Is
such that the new vessel cannot arrive
any too soon to satisfy the wishes of
the C. P. R. management It will not
likely be ready for service until next
January, however, and will not be
available this coming summer. The
placing of the Princess Victoria on the
triangular run among the porta of Victoria, Vancouver and Seattle, united
with the extra service which the Charmer can give, relieves the situation
as far as the summer months are concerned.
It Is likely that Captain Troup will
leave shortly for England to examine
the work done on the steamer which
will be launched tn a short time.
The conditions prevailing on the
coast at present are such that Capt.
Troup's hands are full, providing for
the Increased trade which races hia
company ln all directions.

Throughout the world today irishmen
and their descendants are thinking of
the Emerald Isle. History contains
many tragic records of national misfortune hut no other storey of a land
so long associated with suffering.
There is a record, partly historical
and partly traditional, uf a period when
Ireland held up the lamp of learning
for all Europe, and Irish priests and
scholars were in demand at every court.
That period was contemporary with the
wars of lhe Saxon Heptarchy. Soon
after the invasion of the Danes began,
und In spite of ilrlan Borolmbe's great
victory at Cloutair In lull, the Incessant strife, the wasted land and the enforced neglect uf husbandry soon reduced to the Irish to poverty, and when
the power >jf the Vikings was broken
by the English at Stamford Bridge and
the piratical incursions ceased, the ruin
of Ireland   was already complete.
The subsequent history is familiar,
the divisions among her chiefs and the
appeal of one for foreign Intervention,
tlie first invasion of the English, the
establishment of the Pale, tbe beginning
of the war that has not ended yet between what was first but a Dublin
garrison and the divided and unorganized clans outside the Pale.
Down to the beginning of the seventeenth century peace and harmony
were not impossible. A succession of Just
and able English governors might have
reconciled the Irish to union with the
Ulster Uie.    The first fatal stroke, the
beginning of Ireland's land problem,
was the establishment of the lister
plantation. Followed soon after by the
Ciomwellian settlement it involved the
passing uf must of the soil of Ireland
to alien hands. Since then the Irish
have been a landless folk, wresting a
desperate living from fields there was
no incentive tu improve, paying rents
to absentee landlords no part of which
went to enrich any one in Ireland.
A less imaginative race might have
forgotten, as many others have done,
their original spoliation, but the bitter
sense ui injustice lias been burned intu
the soul uf Ireland. Nothing, probably,
will ever reconcile the Irish to the
present regime but the restoration oi
their lands.
Hut tlie most remarkable feature of
the history of the Irish people is lhat,
in spite of nearly a thousand years oi
national failure, ut deleal and spoliation, of poverty, uf lawlessness aud
misery, they have acquired and held a
reputation everywhere for wit and
gaiety. A thousand failures cannot
Quench an Irishman's hope and faith.
in all other lauds, in the service of
every nation but their own, Irish soldiers, statesmen and scholars have risen
to eminence. The last Boer war presented a curious spectacle. The Nationalist party in parliament consistently denounced the war, but Wolaelej, ut
the war oliice, Roberts, in command in
the Held, Kitchener, his chief of staff,
and Sir George White, the defender of
Ladysmlth, were ull Irishmen, and the
brunt of all tlie fighting Ln Buller'S dcB-
perate assaults tn Natal was burne by
the Irish brigade.
The last decade has beeu marked by
a peculiur development. There huve
beeu many crossings of race, creed and
party lines. If little of practical value
has been accomplished, It has at least
been driven hume tu the minds of the
English people as well as uf their leaders that Ireland's eternal grievance is
not one of sheer perversity. It is a cry
of suffering from real evils that  muBt
be remedied, not by alternate indulgence and repression but by constant
and consistent enforcement of the law
against all classes, and Intelligent efforts to improve the economic condition of the Irish peasantry.
A prosperous and contented Ireland
wuuid be almost a miracle hut it is nut
an impossible achievement of the twentieth century, and it is the recurrent
St. Patrick's Day prayer of all Irishmeu
whether their forebears were Celt or
S.ixon in   Norman or Daue.
Some Outario Liberal members uf
parliament are going to have a bad
lime the next time they face their
constituents. As a specimen of what
the; will have to explain we extract
the following from the Owen Sound
Times. It is from a signed letter by a
former Conservative member for North
Grey and refers to the sitting Liberal
member: Just imagine W. P. Telford rinding In a procession through the
streets uf Owen Sound with the iate
D'Altun McCarthy as a prutest against
the .Manitoba Remedial Bill; also
signing a petition to have a lady teacher dismissed from our public schools
because she was a Roman Catholic, yes,
joining the P. P. A. society and becoming its treasurer. We next see him in
parliament when in the first session he
votes through parliament, legislation
which forever binds the previnces of
Alberta and Saskatchewan to a system
of separate schools, compared with
which the Manitoba Remedial Bill was
Probably the reply given to the representatives of the Publicity Bureau by
the majority of the council last night
was the only course they felt justified
in taking. But the publicity campaign
must not stop, and we are confident
lhat those who have worked so long
and so hard for Nelson for a little less
than thanks will keep up the good work.

property which has had a somewhat
chequered career, is now. and has been
for some time, undergoing the most
extensive development operations. The
mine Is under bond lease to the Canadian Concentrating & Smelting Company, Limited, a Vancouver corporation. Two weeks ago the company retained a mining engineer who came
from Australia by the S. S. Aorangl on
her last trip. This gentleman, who
came very highly recommended. Is now
at the mine in charge of the metallurgical end of the work and his reports
which are of an encouraging nature.
The Monarch mine Is situated on
Mount Stephen, three miles east of

main drive Is about 600 feet above the
C. P. R. main line and probably 1,000

Valuable Fruit Ranch.
The Slocan Mining Review has the
following concerning a recent sale at
New Denver of a small fruit ranch: "A
deal which marks the beginning of a
Berles was consummated this week, and
with the transaction just closed there
Is a lesson conveyed to prospective purchasers of Fruit lands ln the Kootenays
In the fact that a local man has paid
$000 per acre for a six acre block. Tho
purchaser was T. II. Ilohen. the well-
known New Denver merchant, and the
vendor. G. Williamson. Although the
price necessarily appears tall. Mr. Ho-
ben must be congratulated on his foresight In securing so splendid a block
near town, which is not only choice In
location, nut Is also ir. ns goorr condition
as hands of man can make It. The
property is well fenced, and about four
and a half acres are now planted ln
trees. There is also a one-storey building on the land."

In turn had negotiated with the Rev.

Station is to visit the Okanagan region

J. D. Wells, of Chicago, Is visiting

ology and therapeutics of Christian

"The   Minstrel   Maids."
What would otherwise have been a
fairly enjoyable performance was marred by the coarse and pointless personal
allusions to well known citizens by the
alleged "The Minstrel Maids" at the
opera house last night. Generally It Is
admissable to "gag" men ln public office, but It Is only In the low music hall
performances that any liberties are
taken with private Individuals. A company with any pretenses to respectability will avoid it. This is probably
the objection that has been raised to the
performance of "The Minstrel Maids"
in other towns. Apart from this deplorable feature of the show, and the
revival of Jokes that served a faithful
apprenticeship In the days of Charles
II., the exhibition was acceptable to
quite a number present.

a majority, favor one more effort by
canvass, to secure guarantees of at
least sufficient support to keep the office open and pay some one enough to

to the council represented more than
half of the assessed value of property
of the city. Presumably all who signed
the petition will contribute to the maintenance of the work they approve.
