"The play's the thing" and the
play was oertainly the feature of
the celebration. The Rossland
amateurs again are entitled to all
kinds of credit. The plays staged
were two, the first being "Batty" J
and the second "Snowslide." The
first, a curtain raiser, was excellent
but would bear even more elaboration. The parts taken were only
three, a play writing crank, (Charles
O'Neill), a musical crank (John
Hooper), and the servant maid
(Miss Winifred Grdwlejt)'. O'Neill
and Miss Crowley are both new
to the Rossland dramatic stage
and both are decided acquisitions.
Miss Crowley ia altogether an amateur, but one that has plenty of
histrionic talent whioh merely re
quires cultivation. She sustained
her part well, several bits of busi
ness doing credit to a far better
better actress than she ie at pre
sent

ZZmmmmmmmmmamaaaa*********m*m*m*************mm*****m*
A certain not unnatural ner
vousuess in the opening scene
showed in a rather a gauche manner which soon wore off and the
part was sustained so as to bring
out the parts of the two crankB,
which is just what was required.
Of the two men it would be* hard to
say whioh was the worst orank.
In the aot was introduced several
songs. A solo, "The Bogey Man,"
sung by MisB Crowley, words by
W. J. Nelson, and musio by John
Hooper, was well reoeived and was
very effective. Another, a parody
When Reuben Comes to Town,"
sung as a duet by Charles O'Neill
and Miss Crowley, bronght down
the house and a topioal verse vigorously scoring tbe mayor was vooi-
ferouely enoored.
"Snowslide" is a very pretty
farce comedy and was exceedingly
well enaoted, W. J. Nelson trod
the Rossland boards for the first
time, and did well as Uncle John,
and Miss Crowley as Penelope s
servant maid, again rendered a
eoubrette part with effectiveness
and a ohange from that of the maid
in "Batty" that showed a histrionic
appreciation which is rare. But
the principal parte ot the play Mr. I
and Mrs. Featherstone were!
taken by Mr. and Mrs. Hooper
and sustained with a foroe of conception and a vividness of portrayal whioh would have done honor to
more ambitious boards than those
oi Rossland. The walking parts
were well sustained by Harold
Ellis and Miss Eileen Bennett who
both seemed at home. Both made
ae muoh of their parts as oould well
be done, and the latter's coquettish-
nesB was very effective aB a byplay.
Between the acts were several
specialties which were good.   Mies
The morning broke lowering, bnt
by 8 e'clock the olouds were rising
and the sun broke through, ashamed of himself and proceeded quickly
to dry up the damp sidewalks. Immediately    crowds    of    holiday
makers,   whose  numbers  showed
that few people had left last night,
except thoses   imperatively  compelled to do so by duty,  thronged
the avenues which presented a lively appearance for the second day of
the Carnival. Appropriately enough
the day began with  the  ohildren
who,  parading   down   from  the
Central, sohool oame along Columbia avenue several hundred strong,
forming an extremely pretty feature of the  programme.    Taking
up their  position  on   the raised
benches, the little ones sang several patriotio songs in a manner
which evinced careful training and
the spectators listened to  an address of welcome  by  the worthy
mayor and a patriotio speech in
his own inimitable manner by W.
J. Nelson.
Next came the

whioh was the best applauded, and
Mies Irene Lewis looked very well
and danced and sang Corinne's
song of the "Queen of Hearrts"
costumed appropriately for the act.
A duet between Miss Crowley and
Mr. O'Neill was also well reoeived
and well sung.
The orohestra was quite a feature
of the evening. Professor Kauff
man had in addition to his usual
professional players, several amateurs, his pupils,MisB M.MoCraney,
Miss Blanoh Raymer, Miss Gladys
Stewart, R. Kenning and I. McNaughton whose playing on violin

Tha Hub and Hub Raca
For the hub and hub race three
entries, Nelson, Rosssland and
Grand Forks. Money was pretty
equally divided between the Rosslanders and the Nelsonitcs but the
shrewder ones notioed that Nelson
had the beBt course, and in so olose
a match as was anticipated, this
ought to secure them the victory:
Be that as it may, after a closely
contested race Nelson drew away
and finished a wheel's breadth
ahead of the Rossland team, tbe
Grand Forks boys ooming in a
good third.
Tha Wat Taat »
Chagrined at the loss of the Hub
and Hub race, the Rossland team
did their utmost to capture the wet
test and their efforts were rewarded
by suocess, Grand Forks getting
second money. Nelson would
likely enough have won, owing to
their greater speed, but aB the team
failed to make connection with the
coupling, they were out ol it. The
times were Rossland 26 1-5 seconds
and Grand Forks, 28 1-3.

IMPERIAL   POSTAGE.
An important resolution passed
unanimously by the Congress of
Chambers of Commerce lately in
session at Montreal, says the Toronto Globe, recommended a reduction in the present rate on British
newspapers and periodicals coming
to Canada. Mr. Parkes, M. P. of
Birmingham, in moving the resolution, clearly pointed out the objection to the present, rate when he
said: "Americans send to Canada
for one cent as much as Englishmen oan send for eight cents. Bri-
ish publications now entering Canada are largely American reprints
containing American advertisements." He also expressed the
opinion that while trade might follow the flag it more frequently followed the advertisements.
Thie is one of the most businesslike views on the subject that has
been enunciated. For while in a
purely sentimental sense a cheap
rate might be very desirable, unless
the sentiment oan be supported by
strong business reasons there is
little likelihood that any change
will be made. If the British public oan be convinced that it is to
their advantage to give i,heir pub
lications an equal chance with
those of the Americans.the Imperial
postofnoe officials will not be slow
in complying with the dictates of
publio opinion. Theonly reason why
a reduotion has not been made ere
thie is, of course, the loss of revenue
that suoh a step would of necessity
cause. The loss of seven cents,
whioh it would be necessary to
make in order that the rate might
not exoeed that charged by the
United States on periodicals coming into Canada, would have to be
made up in some way, and this
other way is exaotly what Mr.
Austen Chamberlain, the Britiah
Postmaster-General; declares himself unable at present to see. The
feasibility of a cheap trans-cceanio
service has been well demonstrated
by our Dominion Postal Department. Critics of Mr. Austen Chamberlain's policy ask how it is that
Canada oan afford to do it, and
Great Britain oannot. But Mr.
Chamberlain has so far remained
firm.

The fight between Queenan and
Mullins last night at the International ended after 20 rounds .in a
draw, neither man being able to
knock the other out though several
times during the fight it seemed as
if Queenan would succeed in that
endeavour. Of the two men, both
weighing 138 pounds, Mullins the
advantage in height and reach bat
Queenan in hiB stockier build and
neater Btyle of boxing quite equal
ized these advantages. Mullins
waB the more active of the two but
Queenan had considerably the
heavier punch. Mullins showed
the better generalship inasmuch as
he never failed to take every ad
vantage he could of the effect of
any serious blow which he succeeded in landing. On the other hand
Queenan failed moro than once in
going after his man when he had
him floored, praotically giving him
time to reoover. Supporters of
Mullins deolare that the taking of
the count was only a ruse of whioh
his opponent was afraid but if this
were the case under the Queensbery
rules Queenan was entitled to the
fight.
It was getting close to twelve
o'clock before the principals started
on the mill. Dan Guthrie waB
ohosen referee and well he did his
work, breaking olean through the
frequent clinches. Dan Thomas
was timekeeper.
The first round was rather tame.
Mullins developed a curious
style of boxing with both hands
before his face down and crouching-
ing, swinging with both hands
especially the right and ducking
cleverly. He had a oatlike crouob
and spring that made it very difficult to get at him despite the apparent wildness of his fighting. With
every olinoh MullinB managed to
get in a jab on the side, neck and
occasionally over the kidneys of
his opponent whioh must have been
very telling. Queenan fought
more on the defensive, keeping the
head well back, slinging a terrible
left and reserving his right for a
settler.
In the second round Queenan
managed to get one in on his opponent's jaw which nearly settled
the fight, Mullins going down and
not rising till the count was half
taken, but rising full of fight and
aggressive.
From the third till the eighth
round there was little advantage on
either side. Mullins mostly foroed
the fighting but was unable to get
in a decisive blow, although landing as frequently ae hiB adversary.
Iu the eighth round Queenan again
succeeded in getting his opponent
hard and had him against the ropes
but did not press hiB advantage.
. Tho ninth round waB Mullins'.
He oame up smiling though evidently winded, and went lieroely
for his antagonist whose olever
ducking saved him more than once,
although on one occasion it led him
into a slip whioh might have had
worse   results  had   Mullins been
/orn thin ?
No! Washed thin! That's so
when common soap is used.

able to take advantage of the momentary situation.
Queenan had decidedly the best
of the next round especially the
first part but Mullins was full of
light and came up aggtessively
enough in the eleventh ronnd regarding little the fierce jabs administered by tbe waiting Queenan.
The fighting told on him for in
the next round Queenan for the
first time in the fight had decidedly
the best of the game and bets were
offered that Mullins could not last
out.
In the thirteenth round both
men started by sparring for wind
and Mullins gets in fiercely on the
faoe, Queenan returning compliment ineffectually.
The next round saw Mullins
again apparently getting the beBt
of the encounter, handing some
hard ones to Queenan that made
him grunt.
Queenan got his chance in the
fifteenth round and knocked his
opponent clean off his legs, who
rolled over in trying to rise, and
took a count of eight before getting
up. Again the advantage was not
pressed by the wary Seattle boy.
From this on to the olose Queenan never got another opening, but
on the contrary Mullins punished
him every time he had an opening.
Had his blows been more effective,
especially one in the last round
Mullins might have come out winner.
The decision of the referee was
oonsidered perfeotly just.

SIMILKAMEEN CITY,
Now Is the Time to Buy Lots
in Similkameen City, B. e.
CAMP HEDLEY is tbe most talked of oamp in the provinoe, and situated in the oentre is Similkameen City, surrounded by
rioh mines which will shortly have large payrolls. Over 200 lotB have been sold to business people who realize that Similkameen will become the metropolis of this diatrict. Tbe Niokel Plate mineB have expended $300,000 in development and are at
present building tramways and a 40-stamp mill. Arrangements are being made for the erection of a large Bmelter at Similkameen City which will cost about a million dollars. Besides the Niokel Plate group of olaims being developed by one of the richest
mining companies in North America, there are several other groups and properties whioh will shortly be developed, among them
being the Kingston Mines, Bollo, Wellington, Winnipeg, Bed Chief and Pollock. Situated as it is in the beautiful Similkameen
valley, midway between Prinoetnn and Keremeos, and protected from all opposition in the valley by adjoining a large Indian
reservation, this townsite will beoome one of the prinoipal mining camps of the Paoifio Northwest. It was only a short time ago
that lots in Bossland, Nelson, Greenwood and other mining centres were selling for the same price that they are today being sold
for in Similkameen.   Come in before the boom and double your money.
Similkameen City to Have Two Railways.
The Viotoria, Vanoouver & Eastern and the Canadian'Pacifio railways are starting immediate construction for the Similkameen,
which will make this town a railroad centre and divisional point, and when these competing lines are completed through to the
Paoifio coast tbey will beoome the main through lines, being the shortest route from the interior to the coast. A large sawmill is
running steadily on tbe west addition, the only available timber for miles around. The main street is 90 feet wide, being all
cleared and ready for building purposes. All railways, roads, telegraph and telephone lines will have to come through tbis
townsite, whioh is looated in the centre of the whole Similkameen valley and will become the largest distributing point and
mining oentre in British Columbia.
Similkameen City Lots Will Make You Rich.
A large agricultural area to draw from.   Pure water, fine climate, rich mines, big payrolls.

Did You
Notice It?
Last year when siphons weren't so cheep
All thought them worth their price;
But now tbat they have been reduced
They think it awfully nice.
Last year they were three fifty,
liut now they're only two;
And I am sure if you're in style
That they will just su't you.
At Goodeve's buy some Sparklets,
Even their price is much less;
And then you'll have your soda
Without a bit of mess.
So buy one ard be ready.
And when a friend drops in
He'll softly Bay "my, that is good,
Where did you get it Jim?"
