Buffalo, N. Y„ May 1.—Ths gates of
tbe Pan-American ixpoiiim were
thrown open today and notwithstanding
it rained all night and the weather was
threatening, lurj-e crowds gathered at
tbe exposition g ites an I, as tbe morning brightened, the various rentes to the
grounds were well pilioaized by those
who desiied lo be pr, sent at the open-
ing.At 3:30 o'clock tho turnstiles clicked
at tbe first of the ma' y millioi 3 of people who will visit Ih: beau'. I nl rainbow
city during tbe six months of its exis-
tance passed into the ground to view
and study the products of American
ingenuity and scientific research and the
research and the resources of the two
continents of western hemisphere,
which Ull the maguilicent surrounding
building?, beautiful in their architectural design, harmonious iu their coloring
and interior decorations.
No ceremonies marked the opening
of tbe gates this morning, It having been
decided by the management of the exposition to combine the opening day
ceremonies with those of dedication
day, on May 20th. The change in the
dale, however, did not -euse a mom-mis
relaxation of the strenuous efforts being
, jju forth by those in connection with
the exposition to have everything as
nearly ready as possible for today's
"pen jig. The appearance ol tlie buildings nnd grounds this morning bore ample evidence of their efforts. Storm
and tbe inevitable details incident to
any undertaking of this magnitude almost made impossible tbe realization of tbe hope that this might be tbe
first of the great expositions to be complete on its opening day. Hut so much
moro already has been wrought than
was deemed possible as the inception of
the project that all are satisfied with
tin- extent of tbe fair aB it appeared this
morning, canied through from the beginning by tbe citizens of Buffalo without state or federal aid .
All of the exposition buildings were
open and the visitors us a rule made their
way to one of tbe nearest gates through
which they entered the grounds. Much
of interest was to be seen in the building
devoted to manufacturers and liberal
aits. Exhibits in the agiiculture building were also assuming shape. In the
government building the visilors found
tbe Smithonian Institute exhibit as well
a stbe exhibits of the natural museum,
the interior, ncvy, tieaeuiv, postoffice,
fish commission and Philippine exhibits
are ull practically complete in detail and
the other departments are not far behind.
President McKinley wires this afternoon: ''I congratulate the citizens of
Buffalo upon the auspicious opening of
the Pan American exposition, ao rich iu
blossom and ripe in expectation. May
liie hopes and ambitions of its promoters
be realized to the fullust measure."
Want Coal Tax Withdrawn.
London, May 1 .—At a meeting of the
Miner's Federation held in London this
morning and attended by delegates (rom
all parts of tbe United Kingdom, it was
recommended that all miners quit work
unless the coal tax should be withdrawn.
Another meeting summoned for May
7th, to decide the matter and to fix a
date for the stoppage of work should that
slept be resolved upon.

Secretaries ot all 11.1imn.11 e niilhorized to receive subscrljiticms for The Evening World,
OU'l FIRST ISSUE.
Tho Evkninii Would has no
apology to offer ils clients, the public, for its appearance. lis publication is simply in response to a
demand for an evening paper
which has been steadily growing
in Rossland ever since the Record
closed down in December last.
The morning paper, says a writer, comes with the morning breakfast of all those who have not to
hurry off to their toil as soon as
the day begins, and a workingman
whose leisure comes in the evening
makes his evening paper the solace
of the horn. 11 is appropriate,
therefore, in a eity of busy workers
■such as Rossland has now grown to
that the evening paper should be
essentially the workingman'a journal, framed particularly to pro
tect and advance his interests, but
in order to do this effectually and
insure the largest circulatlou possi
ble it is necessary that the latest
telegraphic and local news obtainable should bo briefly presented
each evening, making the paper of
interest to the. public at large.
The full day report of the Canadian Associated Press will appear
in each issue, although at first it
will be necessary to abreviate a portion of tho dispatches in order to
make room for local and mining
news. A little later, when the
piper in .enlarged, this will be
changed. No trouble will be spared
in obtaining and publishing all
local happenings and due prominence will be yiveu to milling
news.   .
As tho recognized champion ol
the united labor organizations of
Southeastern British Columbia,The
World litis a good circulation already assured. A partial canvas
of the city has given an exceedingly gratifying return-, demonstrating
that the circulation will steadily
increase as the paper is known and
appreciated. That our advertising
patrons wanted an evening paper i.
clearly shown in ihe columns ol
this issue.
Apart from the labor interest the
World will take an independent
stand on all political, municipal
and local matters, holding steadily
that ''the good ol the camp" should
ever be the chiel' consideration of
any newspaper hoping to succeed
in Rossland.
to think that three   or  four  men j
here aud in Toronto have got the
power to injure   the industry  and
the camp to the extent they have.
Meantime the policy of the management is one of suppression of
the facts.   No information of any
kind.is given out and in answer to
all  enquiries a   polite   refusal   is
given.     At   the  moment we can
only suggest two possible courses—
a little later others may be found.
As Messrs. Gooderham aud Black-
stock   have   repeatedly   asserted
their entire ignorance   of mining,
how would it do to import the gentlemen   to   Rossland   aud    teach
them.    It would take time, but it
could bo done, or   the   local   rifle
company might be called upon and,
with the assistance of the  maxim
aud a few   citizens,   "The   Hill"
might be stormed, the incapables
thrown out aud a   real bead   installed.
Seriously, some energetic steps
should be takeu to put an end to
the tangle the management have
got themsemselves into and put us
all in.

Heaven bless and preserve the
widow. May it be long before she
is married and lost to ns. Of course
widows in general are not referred
to, but Charles Daua Gibson's
dainty creation in the central cartoon of New York Life. Week by
week the fair lady aud her Beveral
admirers are shown to us in differ-
out tableaux. The widow has many
ardent admirers all ovor the continent and they are getting anxious
over tbe lady's fate. To whom will
Mr. Gibson eventually marry her?
The question has become of international importance and we suggest to Mr. Gibson that he introduce a typical western mining man
into the group and let him win tho
lady.
A Boston girl is doing a great
business with tho cartoons in n,uos-
tion. Tho pictures are cut out of
Life, hand painted, and mounted

THE CITY PRINTING.
THE  AVAR   EAGLE   TANGLE.
Ono of tho greatest, if not the
chief causes for the depression of
all- British Columbia mining ink-rests in Eastern Canada, und indeed
in the New York aud London
markets, is the drop in War Eagle
and Centre Star stocks, There is
probably not ;t business man or
broker in tin. Kootenays 'Alio is
not painfully aware of bow greatly
the taugle Into which tho management of those mines have fallen
has hurt and is emit inning to hurt
the whole of the milling and business interests in these parts. If an
eastern man is asked to go into
a venture of any sort out hero
he indignantly points to the history of tho two properties named
and retorts that eastern investments are good enough for him.
Every day letters como hero
from tho east showing that tho prevailing idea about mining in general and in EoBslaud in particular
is that we have become a past
number and that shortly Rosslaud
will cease to exist, all because the
management of these two mi es
have made a meds of things generally.   It is intensely aggravating
Men are prone to err and city
councils are composed of men.
I'ossibly if a few women members
joined in the deliberations councils
vniilil go straigbler aud Bin loss.
The matter of tho city printing
came up last evening when an earnest protest was read from several
city firms against tho mode and
manner of calling for tenders adopt*
ed by the council. It was claimed
that tho specillcations were vague
md in many other respects entirely
unsatisfactory, the faulty details
beiug set out in the protest.
Alderman Kelt, it seems, had
detected a stupid method in force
in ordering the printing. Small
orders were given repeatedly for
goods required constantly and as
anyone can see the bills came high.
And so it was decidid to call for
tenders but, as stated, the specifications given prevented proper applications being mado.
There are four lirms in the city
city who do the business in question and it is a good thing that a
fair distribution should be made,
If the council would decide just
what is required for the year and
call upon tho firms for prices, a
reasonable schedule can be agreed
upon satisfactory to all  concerned.
Just received, in 14, 20 and 28 pound tins,
also one pound bricks, in Jersey, Government Creamery and llazelwood. Freshest

(aid that in one of the new drifts 30

up in values and a large section will

as proving the richness of the lower workings. It is also slate! thu the recent

direct result of the mine managers report

It is also ai'ertei with definite clearness that tbe ore body has been again
found in the lower workings of the War

proved satis'au'ory. When the company report was issue! in February the
main shaft was going down with a swiftness "unequalled iu thu Kootenays" as

FROM PAUL
How MaeNeill Answered Gait
in thc Arrest Ca.se of
Mr. Chittenden.
Everyone ktiowa that the War -liaglc
Co., put C. E. Chi'tendeo their IwM
manager in durance vile and kept him
there a week snd lhat he was released
through MacNei|l K. C'.'s efforts hut
there is a biblical story in the case
worthy of 1 ;cord
After Chiueuden was behind the bars
Mr. MaeNeill at onee moved for a writ of
habeas corpus, Mr. Gait's clients relented and'.heir solicitor wrote MaeNeill.
That " we will consent to your client's
release under the circumstances." Mr
Gait was astounded to receive a reply
that read:
"Referring 10 your letter ol to day
'consenting to'Mr. Chittenden's release
we beg to say that our reply will be
found in Acts Chap. 16, Verse 36-'/. Mr.
Gait; with Tom Parker's assistance after
a lengthy search found the following reference:
"36. The magistrates have sent to let
you go; now therefore depart and go in
peace.
"37. But Paul answered, they have
beaten ua openly uncondemned being
Romans and have cast   us into prison
Doctor Yerkes, of Harvard
University, spent a large part
of last summer   in  observing
the formation of habits in the
turtle.   Haoit is a large part
of life not   only  with human
beings     but    with    reptiles.
The turtle has generally been
accounted a sluggish creature.
Doctor   Yerkes    wanted   to
learn how quickly the turtle
could learn anything.   So he
arranged a box • with various
obstacles between the extreme
corners, in one of which  was
a dark nest.   At the end  farthest from the nest he placed
a turtle.    The  animal wondered  around  for thirty-five
minutes before finding what
it wanted; but after it once
kniw   the route  it began  to
improve on the records.    In
tact,    the   fiftieth    trip   was
made "in thirty-five seconds.
More difficult labyrinths were
arranged and the turtle again
showed that when it knew  its
way it   went   as   straight   as
possible    to   its   deslination.
If it got lost it would   wander
back to the starting place and
begin over again.   A means
was made   for   it   to   escape
from    its imprisonment,  and
Dr. Yerkes makes this interesting comment:   "Had   the
turtle stopped  to judge and
draw inference as to the way
to escape  instead of persis-
tenly  moving from  place to
place it would probably be  in
the pen yet."    In another experiment, Doctor Yerkes tells
u-a, the turtle found that   it
could make time by crawling
ovei tne edge   of  an  incline
and making a plunge, and afterwards it   always   went   in
this manner.
Alt these tilings show that
the turtle has some points
which the human being might
copy with profit. For instance,
ils way of making its record
better with every effort is
entirely commendable. Its
hab.ts, when lost, of going
back to the starting point and
beginning over again can be
recommended to anybody,
young ot old, and is sure to
lead to success in the end.
Its courage in making a
plunge and then continuing
the particular operation as a
saving of time or a short cut
to fortune may smack of speculation; but that is a large
part of life anyhow, an so that
too, ought to be useful as an
example.
In fact these experiments
have given us a higher appreciation of the turtle, and they
entitle him to a larger respect
than he has hitherto commanded. Now, if Professor
Yerkes will only try a few experiments with the diamond-
That Spain is determined
to win back by the arts of
peace the prestige that she
lost by unsuccessful war becomes more and more evident. On the thirtieth of this
month there is to be held at
Barcelona an exposition that
is significant of the new spirit
that is entering into the country. On that day an exhibition of Spanish coal is to be
opened and it is to con tinue
until the end of June.
The men who planned the
exposition seem to be broad-
minded and advanced, for
their ideas are in the line of
progressive thought. The
purpose of the exhibit is announced to be the exploration of the coal wealth of the
country, and great results are
anticipated.
Not only is coal to be
shown, but modern patent
fuels and waste products are
welcome, as well as peat and
coke, pitch and tar, and whatever minerals are used in the
making of special fuels.
The plan is even more advanced-in fact it could not
be more advanced if it were
in progressive America—for
all possible kind of tools, machinery and appliances connected with the mining,handling and shipping of coal are
to be shown. Stoves, furnaces, hearths and grates also
come under the purview of
the managers of the scheme.
That spain is the richest
country in Europe in minerals has long been known.
There are immense deposits
of iron ore and of lead, of
sulphur, copper and nickel.
Following the impetus given by the development of the
coal beds will come a livelier
increase in railroad building
and in manufactures, and a
new Spain promises to rise
from the downfall of the old.
For centuries spain has foolishly prided herself on chivalry, romance, punctiliousness
and ability to fight. Her stiff
pomposity and egotism have
made her a laughing-stock,
and in war after war she has
been terribly beaten.
Many a foolhh man has
had common-sense put into
him by a good beating, and
after a series of defeats has
at length arisen sober-minded
and more capable. It is often with nations as it is with
individual men.

HOW CASH GOES
City Council Passes Bills
for $3500 Last Night.
HORSES FOR SALE CHEAP
Much Needed Sidewalks to be Laid
—What the Bronchos Cost—
Milliard's Little Bill.
The city fathers held a $3500 weekly
session last evening, or to be exact accounts were passed for tbe week to the
tune of $3584.80. The chief items being
$550 for the new fire horses—only one
of which ia possibly fit for the service—
$100 freight oa the horses. Salary
list April $1931.65, Dr. Roddick $200,
streets payroll $129, and fire, water, and
and light accounts $626.
The city some time ago dispatched
Alderman MacDonald to purchase additional horses for the Are department.
The Alderman wandered around Montana and elsewhere winding up at Calgary with the result that the city now
owns three valuable bronchos which
cost tbe ratepayers some $750, one of
the horses the tire chief says may be
made fairly fit but was a unanimous
feeling that the other two animals had
better be passed on at once to some deserving citizens who possibly might find
use for tbem.
If the council applied to the fire department!* at Vk-toria, Vancouver or
New Westminster they would probubly
obtain th e necessary intormatlon regard
ing the whereabouts of a suilab'e team
that they were so anxious to obtain last
evening and the freight on letters to the
points mentioned including a return
message is not high.

There is a decided difference of opinion between Mr. Milliard and the council, the gentleman claimed $100 for bis
fee in fixing up the cily lire alarm while
the council thought $25 enough but
were willing to compromise on $50.
The finance committee will wiestle with
the matter later on.

close. The question of more becoming
church building is agitating St. George's

frcm the earnest detires of all the members, a strong effort will soon be made
to attain the object of tbe r ambitions.

THE STOCK
MARKET
Today's Quotations at the Local Board—Centre Star
Goes Down.
During the past month the two principal features have been Die jump in
Le Roi stock and the further depression
in both War Eagle and Centre Star.
That a mine paying a monthly dividend
of one per cent should havd ite stock
quoted around 30 cents and even lower
is painful to think about and clearly
demonstrates that there is something
radically wrong in the management.
No mining man in Rossland thinks that
either the War Eagle or the Centre
Star has petered out or that both properties are not worthy of support. The
distrust in all cases appears to centre
upon the management. The Le Roi advance is touched upon elsewhere in this
issue:
The effect of the War Eagle-Centre
Star tangle has been to depress more
or less ell tbe other stocks and although
there has been a good deal of trading
done in them the tone of Ihe market
has been dull and featureless.
