Worthy   Production   of   Ian   McLaren's
Story   in   Dramatic   Form���A
Talented Company.
"Ian Mclaren's" story of Lachlan
Campbell, tin.1 uncimiiiromiHii.K champion of the doctrine of furcoidination.
and bis (iaiiKliter wus well told in a
ael ics of KtaKe pictures and aniUBint;
dlatatfna at tlie opera bouse last evening. The Daily Canadian accepiB no
retainer to buo-l barnstormerH, ho thai
whai it says Ib duin- without hope of
profit or fear of loss ln a commercial
way. Judging by tbe compani Mr.
Walker has sent here iu the pa: . The
Canadian way constrained lo remark before hand tbat 'The Honnie Hriar Hush
would be worthy of patronage. This
paper can now say that its forecast was
fully JBattfted by the performance given
at Uie 0J}4Ea ho-js** last evening. "The
Bonnie Briar liush"' is noi a great play,
but it tells a very pretty story. The
drama does not follow ver;-' closely the
story of He v. Dr. Watson, but tha J is
not the fauli of lhe dramatist. There is
little plot in tin- story, su that the
dramatist had to draw on "Hazel Klrke"
for situations and plot. It so happens
that be went to the right source, and
thr result of his labors is a most acceptable stage production of a charming
story. As to the characters employed
to relate the story a great deal may be
honestly said in their favor. The leading part, Lachlan Campbell, was cnatiil
by the veteran actor, Sloddart, and
when he died it was feared tbat no ona
could be found to do it full justice.
Stoddart was a Scotchman, and he had
what is known on the stage as atmosphere, that is he knew the conditions
under which Scotch people lived, and
their national characteiistics. In J- P.
Collins a worthy successor of Stoddart
has been discovered. He may not understand the Scottish character as well.
but what he has lost in early environment he certainly has made up by art.
This is particularly tbe case with regard to accent, but he may have lost
sight of the fact lhat Um Scotchman
does not betray his emotions when In
great sorrow. He bleeds inwardly and
bis sorrow is subdued- Hut latitude is
permissable on the stage Just as In poetry, and it musl therefore hi- oontoaaad

ACtOr, Scotchman will say that "l-oaty"
Is a character frequently met with in
Scotland. He mav have at times failed
in holding the mirror up to nature, but
the requirements of the stage demanded
tbe aacrtfloe. Fax was the original
"i'osty," and Mr. Colvin has made it his
rule to accept as closely as possible Mr.
Fax's conception of the part. He was
on the best of terms with his audience
throughout      the      performance.        Tbe
character of Dr.  McClure is beautiful
even in the story, and it was quite as
attractive in the stage production, The
name of tbe gentleman who had this
role Is not given on thu programme, so
it is Impoaaible to give his name in
private itfe. Miss McCann made an acceptable "Margaret Howe."   Her dialect
bad the real Scutch tlavor. and her act

could be said In praise nf the otheir
members of Ibe compuny, but ipaoe will
nol permit extended notice. Suffice it
to say the performance on the whole
was one of the best ever presented al
the Nelson opera house, and lhe company will leave a pleasing impression
behind them. The Scotch snugs were
a molt attractive feature of lhe even-
lug's entertainment, and the dancing of
the Kennedy children was heartily applauded. "The Honnie Hriar Hush" will
lie repented thlfl evening, and the attendance should he commensurate with
1 the high merit of tbe  performance.

Fiftt Cents a
Grand Ball With  Members of Mountain
Association   as   Hosts���Best
of its Kind,
The ball given in tbe Alice roller rink
last night by the Mountain L.umber
.Manufucturers' Association set a new
standard for such events in Nelson. The
management of the rink had done their
pari thoroughly. The dressing rooms,
gabei-fes, dining room and bowling alley
were made t.horougniy cieau aud com-
lonabie. uurmg mu evening many who
do not dance found diversion and exercise iu tbe alleys.
The rink proper which formed tie
bail loom hud been converted into a
magnilied drawing room. Not an iuch
oi bare wall was visible aud the eifect
ol tne softly blending colors was very
pleasing aud was the subject of admii-
ing comment by all tlie guests. The
Whole scheme of decoration which was
a t numpii of laslelui simplicity, was
designed and supervised by Alts. W. A.
The orchestra, Curtis,' was installed
on a platform suspended from tin rail
ers, and look nothing from the dancing
space. Kgrcss and ingress were hud by
a Blair let down und drawn up again in
the intervals. The music was luultless
in tune and was repealed)}  encored.
'lhe supper was not inferior in material or arrangement to any of the otuei
ly conveyed to the men that supi/t-r
kin^ was in cnarge and more than sus-
l.iiiM'd ins reputation. There was uo
crowding al any Ume. Word was quiet-
leal u re. The veteran Delville Tom-
was ready, and everyone louud a comfortable seat at a prettily decorated aud
most conveniently anaugud table. And
the faie was oi  une best..
lu spile oi rtspoiirits to many encores, aud of tbe insertion ol many extras tiie regular programme came io an
end about ;i a. in. Jubl before the last
wait! a stenloriau voice from tbe orchestra's cage announced: "After the
regular programme there will be 10
extras mole or less," an announcement
which was received with laughter and
applause  .
1'hen au immense ring was formed
and with hands locked tbe dancers sang
"Auld -Lang Syne." W. A. Macdonald
called for "Three cheers for tbe lumbermen," which were given with a will.
President P. Lund replied with "Tinee
cheers foi Nelaon," and Jos. Deschamps
led with "Ihey Are .Joily Uood fellows.
Then the "It; extras more or less" began. During an interval Messrs. P.
Lund and A. Leitch tendered tne sincere
thanks of the lumbermen to Mrs. Macdonald for ber extreme kindness tn sup-
ei intending the decoration of the ball
and lor the great assistance she gave
tiie secretary, Mr. Anstie, in organizing

Earl Grey's Plan to Keep
Battle Fields
Premier McBride a Patron���Interest
Awakened in all Parts of
British Empire.
Hon. Hlchard McBride has consented
to act as vice patron of the plan to acquire the battlellelds near Quebec and
turn them into a grand national park.
The request came from the committee
of which Ear] Grey is the head.
The action of the Governor-General
of the Dominion bas been hailed^ by the
liritish press as exceedingly wise and
the present is viewed as the psychological moment for the enterprise. The
Anglo-Krencb entente and the good feeling which is the growth of that renders
it possible.
The proposal is dealt with at length
in the London Daily Telegraph of recent date. Speaking of it the writer
"lx>rd Grey's term of office bas marked a new epoch of national life in Canada, where the intluence of his vigor
and eloquence has been felt from sea
to sea; but the Governor-General has
never had a finer inspiration than the
project In connection with tbe third centenary of the founding of Quebec. The
scheme aims at consecrating and preserving *for ever .Uie battlefields on
tbe heights, equally commemorating the
ttiumphs. the reverses, tho heroism and
the reconciliation of two races. Lord
Grey's enterprise is a stroke of imaginative statesmanship which would
have appealed to him who murmured
the stanzas of the "Elegy" as the boats
dropped down the Si. Lawrence in
darkness the night before his victory
and death. Not less would it have moved the chivalrous soul of Montcalm.
"The whole plan is, like all great
ideas, as ambitious as brilliant. It
wuald bring British and French together in the Dominion by a finer spiritual bond than has yet existed between
them. With such emotions as ours
when we . enter Westminster Abbey
they would tread the soil of the dedicated ground in sight of tbe monument
of the Angel of Peace, meant to look
down from the summit of the rock
ui>on the flood of the great river. But
bolod though the scheme may be, it has
been inaugurated, and enjoys the King's
approval and assistance. It kindles the
enthusiasm, as well it might, of all Canadians,  without  distinction or origin.
"Sir Wilfrid Laurier is uot behind
tbe Governor-General In supporting It.
To us aud our neighbors across the
Channel it is hardly less attractive, for
In a less favorable state of our relations with France it would not have
been possible, and It will form an Incomparable memorial of the entente
oordlale, Nor is this all. I'pon the
Plains of Abraham no small part of
the destinies of the modern world has
heen determined. When we acquired
the French Colonies upon the St. Law-
ivuci' we sealed lhe fate of our dominion in our own. Had Quebec remained
French, the thirteen colonies would
have remained British. Our sea-power
alone creaied the conditions of American freedom, which no efforts of .Americans on land could otherwise bave
achieved.    No one disputes lhat now.
Choiseul. the last considerable statesman of the old regime, expressed the
truth with admirable penetration even
when yielding to the Irresistible Earl
of Chatham. lb* prophesied that the
British Colonies, relieved from French
pressure, which had hitherto done
more than anj'thlng else to keep them
loyal, would be independent in ten
years. They were independent In fifteen, largoly by French assistance. Thus
the destinies of three nations were inextricably mingled. England won. and
Canada remains under the British (lag
to this day, reminded by every episode
of ber nattonal development of Park-
mans apt words with reference to the
cause thai lost, "Never was there a
happier calamity." Bul never did the
less fortunate combatants prepare for
tbe victors a more terrible Nemesis
than that which was soon to rend our
Empire upart; and not only was the ac
count of honor so soon balanced, but a
Prime Ministei of French name and
hloud is at the head of free Canada today. Finally, no thoughtful citizen of
the United States can stand where
Wolfe and Mom calm died without remembering that their encounter was
the prologue of events which were soon
to create the United States. Of Canadian, British, French and American sui>-
port, the plan for creating "The King
Edward Park" on the site of the battlefields is equally worthy. Lord
Grey's conception will now be understood; we cannot doubt that it will in
due   course   he   realized.
"The capital of old Canada, with few
livals for situation among famous places anywhere in the world, is, among
all the cities of the American hemisphere, by far the most picturesque and
historic. Next summer it will be .500
years old. To overy visitor from the
^ireat Republic to the south, its as
pect, so utterly unlike anything that exists under the stars and stripes, seems
still to breathe antiquity and romance.
Samuel Champlain, a -pioneer equal to
any of our own, sailed, in 1*108, up tbe
river which always most attracted the
imagination of the P*rencn. r.n** j-anted
a permanent settlement on the narrow
point where the St. Charles and the St.
Lawreuce flow together at the foot of
the rock of Quebec. He was not only
tbe founder of the city, but the founder
of Canada. Fired by this leader's spirit,
explorers were sent out far and wide,
making their way across vast wildernesses to the Great Lakes and to within sight of the white peaks of the Kocky
Mountains. When the seven years' war
broke out, a century ami a half later,
the whole number of the Frenchmen
in Canada was a mere handful���some
60,000 in ail. But leadership and racial spirit compensated for the inferiority of their numbers. They had most
influence with the Indians. Not one
Englishman in a thousand* even remotely realizes how splendid was the fight
that the French race made for North
America, and how for year after year
our best efforts were baffled again and*
again. We had tho permanent superiority at sea. The population of our
own colonies was infinitely larger than
the number of our French neighbors.
While France was tied down by the
Continental war, and kept fronting towards the Rhine by the genius of
Frederick the Great, we were free to
fling the whole of our available military resources such as they were, upon
tne points to be struck at in North America. We had every advantage���except decisive statesmanship at home
and competent military leaders. We
only had the latter when we got the former. In the meantime we were beaten
at all points. Montcalm had won action
after action, and we had no one to cope
with him. At that time France had
more officers relatively to the total extent of her forces and the size of her
population thin any country ever possessed bef*"i er since. But they were
never adequately supported from home.
When our fortun*"-- rvure. in the depths
of gloom. Chatl.. u uot yet known by
that title, was recalled to office. In
six months the whole world was vibrating with his electrifying energy. He
had made up his mind lhat the war,
which involved three continents, must
bo decided in North America. And to
that region Quebec was the key. Without that the continent would remain divided. Holding that, we would hold all.
It is not our Intention even to recapitulate here the details of that immortal
story. "Engand." said Frederick,
the Great, "has been a long time in
labor, but at length she bas brought
forth a man." She had indeed. And
tho sequel was to prove the great truth
that one man makes manv. Chatham
had the supreme gift of leadership, for
he joined to his own genius for direction the art of choosing his lieutenants well, and supporting them vigorously when  he had got them.
Waterloo and the Plains of Abraham
are said to be the only battlefields
which support a permanent cab stand.
The latter scene now attracts even
more visitors than the former. Human
instinet is not astray her*-, though few
who tread the heights of Quebec are
drawn bv any reasoned view of the comparative importance of historical events.
Wolfe was one of those enthusiasts
whose apparent extravagance Is distrusted bv ordinary men. The words and
attitudes of medocrllios are general l.v
safe ami prudent, and nothing but the
test of a crisis shows them for what
they are. It Is when the big task Is
to be faced thai men judged in easy
times to be pretty much on tho level
show the full extent of their differences In capacity and character. Courtiers assured George the Second that
Wolfe was "mad." "Then." said the
shrewd old King, who had himself a
soldier's eye. "I onlv hope he will bite
some of my othor generals." How Impregnable seemed tho Iron face of tho cliffs
along tho St. Lawrence; how in defeat
and illness and loneliness, the shadow
of despondency, darkening night unto
deeper despair, settled upon tho soul of
Wolfe; how, while examining gloomily
through his telescope the natural mm
parts that defied him, a possible path
was soon; how In spite of all prophecies
that the British troops could never succeed unless they learned to fly. the
cliffs were escaladod ln the night; how-
French fortunes fell with Montcalm,
and Wolfe died in the hour of victory���
(ho whole wonderful drama of this episode is known to all of us who have
road either at school or since, anv fitting account of a struggle, one of the
most plsturesquo in scene, one of the
noblest in incident, one of tho most momentous in consequence among all tho
deeisive battles of tho world since history began. Bnt. as Ltord Grey reminds
us. the fighting did not end there, ''in
the following yeur the rallied French
returned to the attack, and on tbo
nelghborin*; battlefield of Ste. Foye.the
French  commander Levis defeated our
General Murray in a desperate action,
and would bave recaptured Quebec, but
the Brftish fleet reappeared in the St.
Lawrence In time. Lord Grey's plan
would include both battlefields. The
crowning ridge is now defaced by incongruous philistinism. Above all frowns
the ugly bulk of a huge jail���the first
object descried by the traveller approaching from the river the Gibraltar
of the New World. Lord Grey's plan
would sweep away from the battlefields
the jail, and everything that mars and
desecrates them; would acquire all the
land needed to make them a national
possession; and would include a circular road sweeping round the whole
scene from the citadel of Quebec along
the cliffs and heights above the St. Lawrence and the St. Charles. We can only
hope that the significant example of tho
King in sending a donation will be widely imitated in this country. If there are
things upon which we must differ with
respect to the idea of Imperial Union,
let us show that tsh-ere are things upon
which we know how to agree. Even in
New Zealand the school children are already doing their part towards Lord
Grey's purpose; and we can imagine no
commemorative movement which could
make a deeper or more poetic appeal to
both races in the Dominion itself, to the
two great republics with which we are
allied or akin, to every one of us at
home with any feeling for the meaning
of our own history, and to the imagination of our race throughout the Empire.

league. This decision was reached In
agreement with the iniperor. It would
appear to be the result of a recent
lengthy conference between Emperor
William and Prince Rupecht of Bavaria,
during which the prince explained that
his retirement Irom the Bavarian branch
of the league was alue to the fact that
Major-General Kolm has made use of

Our contemporary's ill advised attempt
to dictate tlie peraonnel nf the city
council for 1908��� however v-< ll Intention-
ed it may have been, haa had a most
unfortunate, it has created division
and confusion.

And so, between council meetings, the
executive authority is in the bands "'

of lln* minority, if there be a division
in tin- council. I' is not enough to ensure the election of a good working
board, to select a good man for mayor.
The idea of a slate ��� ir ticket Is not particularly attractive, but it is far better
that there should be mutual understand
ins and co-operation than that everything should  ti��- Left  to hazard.
Our contemporary nominated S. S
Taylor, K. 0;, for mayor. After twice
refusing nomination Mr. Taylor gave b
conditional acoeptanoe, the chief pro

temporary declared that ihey could not
be taken seriously. It was also staled
that a list had been submitted to it. pol
aibly for its approval. That statement
may Im* true. In the absence of evidenci
to the contrary, we are bound to assume
that it Ib true. 13ut if so, it Ib the most
remarkable -urocedure ever recorded of
a body of nun who believed that they

--ur e o temporary then proceeded to
ri vise the lis*, and named a number of
gentlemen who, in its opinion, were
qualified for positions in the council.
At this juncture other citizens had the
temerity to tn- interested in the issue
and lo disagree with our contemporary.
We are informed that an effort was
made to form a council without a contest and that ,Mr. Taylor was consulted
with that  end In view.
The at i em pi failed and those who
made it, apprehensive of the possible
dangers of haphazard nomination, de-
clded that their only alternative was to
organize Independently and endeavor
tu s' cure the election of a council com*
posed of men of business and administrative experience, whose ideas in re-
paid to tlie city's problems of the pres
��� nt and Immedlte future are well known.
In lhat endeavor their choice for
mayor fell upon John A. trying who bar*,
already sacrificed much In the city'B Interest, consented to let his name go I'"

Harry    Thaw   Doesn't    Want    Either   to
Be  Hanged or go to Asylum.
New York. Jan. 11. ���Matteawan in
sane asylum, to which Many K. Thaw
will he sent if, as the slayer of Stan
ford White, he is pronounced mentally irresponsible, is one of the largest institutions of its kind in the country and is maintained hy the state of
New York specially for the custody
and safe keeping of the criminal in
sane. Thaw dreads the possibility of
being sent to Matteawan and has several times said he would prefer to go
tti   Sing   Sing rather   than   be   shut   up
with the criminal insane.
Matteawan is to all intents and purposes a prison, although much more
liberty is granted the inmates than is
the case with criminals of sane mind,
During certain periods of the day the
male inmates are allowed to mingle in
a large hall, and here Thaw would find
himself among hundreds of maniacs,
each guilty of .some crime. The asylum
houses many noted criminals, murderers, professional robbers and thieves of
all races and classes. Many of the Inmates have been imprisoned in the
asylum for more than twenty-five years
and several as long as forty years. One
old woman has been confined there since
1850. A few years ago the institution
became so overcrowded that It was
found necessary to establish a second
asylum for the housing of the criminal
insane. This refuge for those who are
dangerous to society is located at Dan*
nemora, near the Canadian line.

First    Expression    of   Consciousness   of
Divinity���Services   in  City
Churches Tomorrow.
Tomorrow will be the first Sunday
after the Epiphany. No holy daya occur during tho week following.
The gospel for the day is St. Luke's
SCCOUnt of the visit of Jesus to the temple when He was a boy of tweive. It
is one of the few stories of the childhood or youth of Christ. The little else
that Is told of that period in the canonical writings is almost summed up in
the words with which St. Luke closes
the narrative: "And Jesus increased in
wisdom and stature, and in favor with
God and man."
The precocity Indicated in the circumstance of a boy of twelve debating
with men of mature intelligence and
learning is remarkable but not unique
in human history. The most important
feature of the narrative is Christ's reply to His Mother:    "Wist ye not that
I must be-about .My Father's business.''
Here Is an avowal, the earliest and perhaps the most clearly expressed or all,
of  His   Consciousness  ��f  Godhead.
The following services are announced
for the city churches for tomorrow:
