It should be mentioned lhat the Nelson -engagement was not a profitable
one. The only newspaper of that day
was not given to puffing shows beforehand, and any way there was a belief
that the company was not of much account else It would not have come to a
small town like Nelson. But If the
management did not amass wealth, the
members of the company had a pleasant time. The citizens who were rich
in this world's goods were determined
to encourage the drama in Nelson, and
the performers were wined and dined
during ihelr stay. The late R. E. Lemon
was one of the enterprising merchants
of that time, and no one will say that
he was backward when It came to a
question of entertaining his friends. He
treated the members of the Belmour-
Gray company to the best the town afforded In the way of luxuries for the
table. In this way he was joined by
other citizens, and when lh> players
left they felt that if they were not
loaded down with the then staple product of the Kootenays, they at least
carried with them the good-will of the
leading citizens.

Gen.   Greely   Paaaes  to   Retired   List���
Distinguished   Public  Career���
Record   in  Arctic
Washington, D. CI., March 27���Major
General Adolphus W. Greely, the famous Arctic explorer, for news of
whose wherabouts the Congress of the
United Slates once offered a reward of
$25,000, waa placed on the retired list
of the army to day for age. General
Greely is now ln the Orient on leave
of absence. His last command was that
of tbe department of Dakota, with
headquarters at St. Paul, where he was
recently succeeded by Brigadier General  Wlnfield  S.  Edgerly.
Few if any officers of the United
States army have enjoyed such a wide
measure of fame during recent years
as has General Greely. It ls now something more than a quarter of a century ago that he attracted world-wide
attention by a polar expedition, of
which he was the chief. This expedition sailed northward in 1881. it contained twenty-five members, of whom
only seven came back. Two relief expeditions failed to find tbe Greely party, and when finally rescued by the
third expedition, sent under command
of Captain Wlnfield S. Schley, tbe survivors of the party were nearly crazed
with hunger. At the time he made
this expedition to the polar seas Gen.
Greely was a lieutenant in the 5th cavalry. The expedition reached a point
farther north than any previous record.
Before going to the Arctic Lieutenant Greely had built thousands of miles
of military telegraph, lines in Texas
and the southwest and bad acted as an
officer of the signal corps, then commanded by Brigadier General Albert J.
Myer. The latter organized the corps,
which was afterward commanded by
Brigadier General W. B. Hazen, and later, following the death of Gen. Hazen,
in 1886, by the returned Arctic hero,
who had been made a captain ln the
regular course of regimental promotions  ln  the   5th  cavalry.
General Greely had the distinction of
being the first man who entered the
Civil War as a private soldier f,o be
promoted to the rank of brigadier general. He was born in Newburyport,
Mass., March 27, 1844, and received a
common school education, in 1861,
when but a few months over seventeen
years of age, be enlisted as a private
and became a member of the Byfield
Rifles. Greely continued with his command until March, 1863. When a call
was made for non-commissioned officers to officer the colored troops then
being organized. Sergeant Greely was
one of the number to respond, and
was commissioned as first lieutenant in
lhe Eighty-firBt United States Colored
Infantry. He served with this command until the fall of 1866, rising to
the grade of major.
He entered the regular army as a second lieutenant ln March, 1867, and was
promoted to first lieutenant ln 1873.
As evidence of slowness of promotion
In tlie army at that time ls the fact
that he served thirteen years as a first
lieutenant before securing promotion,
and during that period attracted the
favorable attention of the world by hiB
efforts to gain new knowledge of the
Arctic zone.
Between 1876 and 1879 young Greely
proved himself to be one of the most
untiring workers in the army. During that period he constructed 2,000
miles of military telegraph ln Texas,
Montana and Dakota. This unprecedented fact made him a marked man in
American military circles. Then came
the expedition to the far north. In
1881. In pursuance of the recommendation of the Hamburg International geographical congresB, he was given command of the United States expedition
to establish one of a chain of thirteen
elrcumpolar stations. The trying experiences of Greoly and his little band
are well known to all readers of history.
During and after the Spanish war
General Qrecly had a further opportunity to show his great ability as a builder of telegraph Hues. Under his Immediate direction there were built and
operated 1.000 miles In Porto Rico. 3.-
800 mlleB ln Cuba, 250 miles In China
during the Boxer outbreak and 10,500
miles of lines and cables in the Philippines. He afterwards Installed n system of 3,900 miles of telegraph lines In
Alaska, one of these lines being the
first wirelesB system to be put to commercial   use.
One of General Greely's most brilliant achievements was the reorganization on its present efficient basts of
the national weather bureau. Previous
to his Incumbency the service was of,
n moBt crude and untrustworthy character. He begun at once to gather
meteorological data from every reliable
source, and In the course of time he
wns able to arrive at something definite. He established n complete system of weather stations in various
parts of the country and lifted tho service from the plane of ridicule to that
of   respectability.
Prior to going to the department of
Dakota General Greely was ln command of the military division of the
Pacific and in this position he directed
the army relief measures at the time
of the San Francisco earthquake and

Civil Servants Want Increases Without Regard to Merit���Grocers
Oppose Co-Operation.
Ottawa, March 27.���Another Federal
invasion of provincial rights, and that
for purely partisan purposes, ls threatened by tbe government in the bill presented by Mr. Aylesworth to amend the
election law. It was submitted that its
object was to make elections clean.
Bui itB first provision belies this intimation. The opening section is design
ed to enable the government to makefile voters' lists in the unorganizeu
portions of Ontario and Quebec, and
throughout Manitoba and British Columbia, As the law stands the provinces make the voters' lists, in conformity with the old Liberal principle,
which demanded that the Dominion
government should have nothing to do
wilh this matter. It will lie remembered that the Liberal party fought
against a Dominion franchise and abolished the Franchise Act when they
came to power.
At the last general ' election the
Laurier government allowed the party
organizers to go through the lists for
Manitoba, and to erase from them large
numbers of voters. The operation is
known to fame as the making of the
"Thin Red Line." The tampering with
the lists was pronounced by the courts
to be improper; but the punishment
of the guilty men while pushed for
some years, was not carried to a successful conclusion, and, as a matter of
fact, had to be dropped, owing to the
protection that was accorded them at
Ottawa. It was pretended by the machine that the manipulation of the lists
was necessary owing to the fact that
the federal and provincial constituencies were not Identical. The claim,
however, does not hold good because
in former years nothing of the kind
had to be done. Moreover, It has been
the duty of the returning officer to see
to It that wherever there Is an overlapping the lists for the polling divisions that are in another federal constituency shall be transferred to that
Now the government in the Aylesworth bill proposes to make the "Thin
Red Line" a regular system, and It intends to employ It, not only In Manitoba, but also ln British Columbia, and
in the unorganized territories of Ontario and Quebec. The first clause of
the bill says that notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained ln the
law; ���
"Voters' lists for the portions of the
provinces of Ontario and Quebec which
consist of territory not municipally organized nnd where there ls no regular
assessment or other valuation roll upon which voters' lists are based and for
several electoral districts In the Provinces of Manitoba and British Columbia
chall be prepared Immediately after the
Issue of any writ for an election In any
Buch electoral district or in any electoral district composed or partly composed of such territory, or at any time
when the governor-in-council so directs; and for the purpose of preparing and giving effect to such voters'
lists the governorin-councll may ap
point all necessary officers und confer
upon them all uecessary powers."
ln the preparation of the lists the
provincial law ls to be followed as nearly as possible, and���
"No person whose name Ib not Included in the voters' lists so prepared
shall  be entitled  to  vote."
One notable feature of this proposition Is the fact Hint the provincial llBts
are to be tampered with, although In
previous elections this was not necessary. Another is the fact that the government proposes to appoint whomsoever It pleases to do this delicate work
In Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba and British Columbia, without telling what sort
of a person will be chosen. Still another Important point Is the circum-
Btanco that the government doslres to
give this person full powors, and does
not allow parliament to say what the
powers shall bo. The Aylesworth bill
Is looked upon as a manoeuvre under
which   disfranchisement   and   list   stuf-
rUng can be carried on in a wholesale
manner. That the house wis, permit
this impudent proposition, which comes
from a government ln whose beua.i
gross election frauds have been perpetrated, to become law, is altogether
Ottawa, March 27.���The senate last
nighi cousklered the Lancaster bill and
udopted an amendment by Senator
lieique. II provides iu effeel that passenger trains must slow down to ten
miles an hour at unprotected crossings,
unless an order to the contrary is issued
by the railway commission, ln other
words the amendment will throw tbe
onus on tbe railway companies to secure
permission from the railway commission as to the rate of speed at which
trains shall run over different crossings.
The bill now stands Ior the third reading.
Civil servants are not at all satisfied
with the report of the commissioners
laid on the table of the commons yesterday afternoon. Strictures on the Incompetency of some departments and
omclals have hit many hard. The Idea
of meriting an increase before receiving
It as recommended in the report ls not
popular. Civil -servants anticipated Increases by classes rather than individually. Nor do they hold the service
to be that of mediocre men. The $5,0uu
minimum for deputy ministers is well
At a meeting of the grocers' association last night K. M. Trowern, of the
Retail Merchants' Association of Canada, secretary, and J. D. Budary, ot
Montreal, denounced the co-operative
societies' bill now under consideration
by the banking committee of the senate.
The measure was declared one calculated to create a huge trust and was a
measure ot class legislation that was a
direct Insult to the wholesale and retail
trade of Canada.
A rumor is ln circulation this afternoon that Brodeur would resign his
portfolo as minister of marine and
fisheries to take a seat on the supreme
court bench in place of Justice Glrouard,
but up to 3 o'clock it was impossible to
deny or confirm the rumor.
Later.���Brodeur says the report ls
absolutely untrue and without the
slightest  justification.
The Dominion observatory seismograph at 6.10 last night recorded one
of the severest earthquake shocks since
the San Francisco disaster. It lasted
two hours. Another almost as strong
was recorded at 10.54. The disturbance
is calculated to be north of South
America. Beautiful records of all the
tremors were obtained.

Prospecta of Greater Immigration From
Europe  Than   Ever���Events
in  Montreal.
Montreal, March 27.���Although the
immigrants entering Canada from the
British Isles decreased by nearly sixty
per cent, during the months of January
and February, there is every prospect
that the total Influx of new comers is
going to be as great this year as in any
previous year.
Montreal, March 27.���A despatch from
New York yesterday Indicates that the
North-Atlantic steamship lines, with the
exception of the Canadian companies,
are about to adopt to plan whereby passengers from this side, who hold return
tickets, may have them good to return
on the Bteamers of other lines from
Europe. It was learned at the general
offices of the company that the Canadian Pacific had not declined to join In
the arrangement if all lines participated. The general passenger agent of
the C. P. R. steamship lines expressed
the opinion that the New York despatch
was calculated to mislead passengers,
as the arrangement could not possibly
lessen the Importance of securing return accommodation before leaving this
side, especially if passengers contemplated returning during the busy westbound season, which is from Julyluth
to October 15th.
Montreal, March 27.���Billy Allen, of
Ottawa, featherweight, champion of
Canada, got the decision over Jimmy
Moran, of New York, at the end of a
fast fifteen round bout, at Mason opera
house last night. The Ottawa boy was
clearly entitled to the decision but Moran put up a game battle trom the start
to finish and in many of the rounds
forced the fighting and kept Allen backing around the ring. It was one of the
best fights seen here between little fellows.

The accident to the steamer Kootenay was* serious en igh to cause a
temporary rearrangement of the C. P. R.
company's Kootenay service.
Hereafter, until farther notice, the
connection with the main line at Revelstoke will be made via Slocan, Roae-
bery and Nakusp, trains, beginning tomorrow, Saturday, March 28th, leaving
Nelson at 7 a m., and arriving at 9.30
p. m. <
The Kootenay was making Its regular run yesterday from Arrowhead to
Robson. When Ave miles above Deer
Park the port cylinder rod gave way at
the crosshead. The piston passed
through the cylinder, knocked out the
forward head, and was hurled Into the
kitchen where it struck the chef, who
suffered a broken leg.
The run to Robson was completed
with the machinery of only one side of
the steamer working. She has returned
to Nakusp today and will be laid up at
the shipyard there for repairs which
will probably take a week.
In the meantime there will be no
steamer service on the Arrow Lakes
between Nakusp and Robson, and the
through service between Nelson and
the main line at Revelstoke will be Inaugurated tomorrow morning by way of
Slocan Lake as announced above.

Wllllamsport, Pa, March 87.���The
discovery in the woods near here of the
bodies of Frank Robers and Mrs. (Justine Briset disclosed a double tragedy.

Government organs have lavished
iiraise ou Mr. Fielding lor his action
as tinauce minister last November in
permitting and encouraging a departure by Canadian banks trom the procedure la.d down for them by the laws
of Canada governing banking. With an
affectation ul uudei standing such organs have described Mr. Fielding.* Intervention as a stroke ul linancial
genius. Mr. Eftfton, whose theatrical return to tlie centre of tlie political
Stage hai attracted much attention lately, hajs alsu joined in the chorus ol
praise We have long understood that
Air. Siliuu is au authority on law, agriculture, railways, the tariff, foreign
trade and transportation. We are glad
lo learn that he is also an authority
un (ranking, of course he must be or
he would not discuss it. Mr. Blfton
never pietends lo kuuw what he doesn't
Well, what Is it that Mr. Fielding
hat- done lu earn this tribute oi praise
from the country's experts on banking���lo wit, Mr, Siltou and the Liberal   editors?
ile, as minister of finance, relaxed
the banking laws of the Dominion and
induced tho banks to Issue notes on
security other than that prescribed by
the law, and to uu amuuut beyond (he
proportion of circulation to reserve required by law.
The natural reflection of a layman is
"If Mr. Fielding did a wise thing in
siusueudlag  the   operation   of   banking
laws, why is it not done oftener? And
if Uie banking laws are such that they
have to be suspended in the public interest,  why  are  they  not amended?"
The banking system of Canada hits
been a matter of national pride with us
and it has often been praised by public men of other lauds, most frequently perhaps by the Americans, who are
considered authorities.
Are they all wrung? And have we
been living in a fool's paradise? If our
system is all that we have thought it,
how is it that it required almost a
revolution at the hand of Mr. Fielding?
The question has recently beeu dis-
CUSSed by A. W. Flux, professor of political science in McGUll University, in
a letter to the- Montreal Witness. Prof.
Fjux is under no necessity ol party to
either appiaud or condemn the act ui
a minister.
Profi Flux letter is worthy of carelui
study, apace permits the reproduction
only   of  a  few   extracts:
"There are some things which wc in
Canada do better than our triends in
tiie United States, Among them is the
business of banking and the provision
Of &uuud and elastic currency.Yet the
budget speech delivered on Tuesday
last, show how our sounder standards
hud been Influenced by the practices
induced   there,   in  part,   by   au   Inferior
system Our laws require
lhat, lor certain pans ol the security
against Dominion notes aud savings
bank deposits theiu shall be held ' Canadian securities guaranteed by the government of the United Kingdom.' Mr.
Fielding has considered himself justified for over three mouths in regarding
the ui as adequately observed by the
holding ot 'other securities guaranteed
by the Bank of Montreal.' That the
discovery of the new interpretation
might be made more difficult to those
not admitted to the secret, he delayed

Christmas merrymakings on Dee. iibtfi,

'Canada Gazette' supplied the information   in   question      They   (the
Americans) have a currency system
which is almost as inelastic as it could
be mude, and their conception of an
emergency currency, which has been
very much discussed of late years, is a
conception designed to induce, at the
critical period of the year, an element
of elasticity Into a system which conspicuously     lacks    that    characteristic.
riie  favorite  icheme is  to copy  the
German method, and tax issues of this
special character, so as to discourage
their use ezecepl in emergencies, Uut,
in taking example by the German system, the) are proposing to imitate a
system which, apart from the provision
of the possibility of a taxed emergency
Issue, is even more rigid, less elastic,
than their own. What is the application of the conception of an emergency
issue to a system whose most conspicuous characteristic is its elasticity? It
might almost be said that the conditions set tip, or propose1*! to be set up
elsewhere, aud operating, or to operate,
only at time3 of stress, are (apart from
the tax on the issue) iu existence all the
time   in   the  Canadian   system

view that it is desirable that .If extended privileges of circulation be needed, they should be acquired by the present Legal method of providing corresponding additions to capital. Banking

Gardening  haa Commenced.
The residents of the suburbs are already getting their gardens ready for
seeding. Digging has commenced, and ln
a few weeks hence Nelson will be one
vast  flower  garden.
Will   Write  a   History.
Frank Fletcher threatens to write a
history of the KootenayB. If Mr. Fletcher adheres Btrlctly to facts and tells
all he knows, hiB forthcoming work
should prove of absorbing Interest from
the  first   chapter  to the  end.
Good Results.
It looks aB If Martin Burreil's lectures In the old country were going to
prove of great benefit to the Kootenays.
Every day the steamer Is crowded with
newcomers from the Old Country, the
majority of whom are looking for desirable fruit land. At no time In the history of Nelson has the city been so
crowded with prospective settlers as
it   Is at  the  present  time.
To Celebrate Gold Discovery.
C. H. Gibbons, of Victoria, has suggested that In connection with the Victoria Day celebration this year, the
semi-centennial of the discovery of gold
on the Fraser might be made an important feature. The suggestion is
thrown out that the demonstration
mighl take the form of a pageant which
ls now so popular in England and
throughout Europe. Certainly the subject lends itself ln a peculiar way to
the successful carrying out of the idea
of a pageant. Mr. Gibbons has gathered information on the holding of these
pageants which would form the working
basis for it and is convinced that It
can be done at a very moderate cost
To Visit England.
Hon. James Dunsmuir, lieutenant-
governor of the province, will visit England. He will be accompanied by Mrs.
Dunsmuir, their youngest daughter,
Dola, and Mrs. Roblln Dunsmuir. In
England the remaining members of the
family will all meet them and after a
visit of a few weeks the entire family
expect to leave by the new yacht being
built for Hon. Mr. Dunsmuir. A cruise
will be made about the coast of Norway in the yacht Dolaura before the
lieutenant-governor and his family leave
for home. Hon. Mr. Dunsmuir and party
will sail by the Empress of Ireland on
April 3rd. Chief Justice Hunter will
be administrator during the four
months' absence of the lieutenant-governor.
Historical   Society.
Some months ago, it was suggested
by Fred Hume that the residents of
the Kootenay should form an historical
society, if for no other reason than to
preserve records of social conditions as they existed in the Interior ln
early days. It seems as if this matter
should not be permitted to drop. Victoria has an organization of this character and so have  the other cities of

the provlnoe. In Winnipeg since the
early seventies there has existed an historical society, and even now the records of the early days are read with
Interest. Nelson In Its own unostentatious way Is making history every
day. and future generations would no
doubt be interested ln the early history
of this portion ot the province. AH
that Is required Is to once get the institution started; Its monthly meetings
are certain to sustain the Interest necessary   to keep   It   alive.
Should Clean Up the Streets.
To the Editor:
Sir���I am a stranger ln your city. I
come from a place that has always preserved a reputation for cleanliness,
which John Wesley tells us ls next
to godliness. I cannot say from what I
have seen since my arrival ln Nelson
that this city can successfully contend
that It has ln this regard earned the
right to be classed as a godly city. The
streets are muddy, and the glimpses I
have been enabled to get of the backyards has not impressed me with the
belief that tbe citizens themselves or
tbo city council possess a proper degree of civic pride. For picturesque
situation Nelson cannot be surpassed
by any city In the world. Why, may I
ask, do the citizens so persistently Ignore the value of the vast wealth ln
beauty so generously bestowed upon
thent by nature? Perhaps you can tell
me. I am told that The Dally Canadian
knows everything worth knowing. If
you desire to maintain the reputation
of your paper you will provide the
answer. Otherwise, admit that your
paper has not earned tbe right of being
regarded as a useful encyclopedia of
everyday Information.

of the extremely sudden death of Chas.
E. Miller at bis residence, Silica streeL
Mr. Miller was in good spirits and seemed ln excellent health until late yesterday afternoon when, in working around
Lis garden, he overstrained himself.
Feeling acute pains in his chest lie
summoned Dr. Willson shortly before
dinner time. He and Mrs. Miller abandoned an evening engagement but had
still no idea that his trouble wus serious. In the course of the evening lie
appeared to rally but sank again. The
deceased was born in Hamilton, Out.,
ln 1865. He came west in 1H!)3 and
became a member of a partnership
in Brandon, Paisley, Miller and Cars-
