WITH THE
MACCABEES
The Function of Yesterday
Afternoon.
GALAXY OF YOUTH AND BEAUTY
Charming Address by Mrs- Hollister
-Public Initiation and' Following Social.
Miners' Union hall yesterday
afternoon presented a gala sight.
There were upwards of three hundred ladies ranged around tbe
room facing an open square where
the evolutions of some 40 candidates for admission into the order
of the Macoabees, were watched
with interest The men were huddled away in a corner at the end of
the hall, and were apparently dazed
With the sight of. so many of the
youth and beauty of Rossland at
one time assembled. The only
male who seemed to be in the proceedings at all, was the worthy
mayor who spoke from the platform, welcoming Mrs. Lillian M.
Hollister, as Sspreme Commander
of the Order. He did not seem
phazed a bit.
An interesting speech by Mrs.
Lillian M. Hollister who spoke as
to the work of women in the world,
of the advantages of home protection, and of the advantages of the
Order of the Maccabees. She congratulated the local hive on its evident energy and on its officers, and
spoke seme kindly words to the
neophytes who indeed seemed to
be somewhat overcome by the novelty of the proceedings and the
publioity of the funotion.
The drill evolutions were excellently carried out and the feminine
oostumes while lending an air of
unreality contributed as nothing
else oould to the pleasingness of the
general ensemble. The solo by
Miss Puroell was excellent well
rendered and it and other features
together made up the most successful of any function of this type
which hai ever been held in this
oity.
Mrs. Hollister left in the evening
and afterwards the Bees swarmed
at Odd Fellows Hall where a
social was the order of the evening
of whioh dancing was the chief
attraction. Finally, shortly
after midnight, tbe tired
workers returned to the home-
keeping drones.
REMOVE _

Proposal to Drain North
Swamp.
CAN BE DONE AT LITTLE COST
Will Go Far Towards Eliminating
Typhoid and May Also Help
Mines-
Don't forget the hot lunch at the
Palace tonight.
The Palaoe has  the only   first

The completion of the storm
sewer or drain from First avenue
to a point on Third avenue near
Queen street is near. It will drain
all the surplus water of the swamp
whioh lies on the Third Addition
and which has been an evil smelling abomination productive of typhoid and what not for years past-
But the storm drain will not drain
the swamp. It will merely provide
an outlet for its overflowing waters.
On its progress up Washington
street a ledge of rock or dyke was
crossed whioh runs in a southerly
direction to a point near the northwest corner of the C. P. R. freight
shed. That bars the waters of the
swamp from penetrating beneath
the ground to the drain, deep as it
is. There is lots of water in ths
drain north of Second avenne. But
it does not come from the swamp,
whioh is cut off in the manner
stated. The water comes from
Monte Cristo mountain, penetrating the sand and gravel bed lying
eaBt of Centre Star gulch and coming from an area of 500 acres on
that mountain. The remainder
drainB down the gulch itself. The
swamp itself is several feet above
the end ef the new storm sewer on
Third avenue and perhaps a oouple
of hundred feet distant. Lying in
a shallow depression in the ground,
probably not more anywhere than
three feet in depth, the swamp is
filled from a drainage area of some
160 acres on the directly south
slope of Monte Cristo mountain.
Thus a body of water is perennially
present and when there is no
longer an overflow in the dry season the water remains and gradually becomes evil and unhealthy as
soon as its overflow ceases from its
south end under the loose rook forming the base of the railway station
and yard, under and over Second
avenue to the drain.
It would be a Bight expense to
out drains across the swamp and
probably some $300 would be sufficient. It would immediately
bring the land into use for the railway whioh owns it and it would
also probably help out the Great
Western into the workings of
which it iB supposed to seep along
the line of fracture of the dyke
already spoken of. It is up to the
health department take some steps
in this matter and rid (he city of

menace yearly to the general health

A LIBERAL PLATFORM.
Several papers, reputedly Liberal
in this province, are publishing a
liberal platform. It was drawn up
at Vanoouver in February of last
year. Several other papers
also reputedly Liberal, deolare that
this platform is wishywashy in
whioh the World thoroughly agrees
and congratulates them on their
rising above a mere partizan spirit
in thus criticizing it. Some say
that the objection to it is merely
because Joe Martin was the leading
spirit in its oonstruotion. Whether
this this be true or not has nothing
to do with the case. If Martin
drew the platform, and if it were a
good one he ought to get the credit
no matter what his political stand
ing. But the platform is far too
vague and slippery. The Liberals
ought to bave a platform that has
something to say, and whioh Btates
that something in unmistakable
language. It is all very well going
to the country without a leader.
That may or may not be good politios, probably bad, but it is absolutely useless going to the country
without a platform on which all
are agreed. Now the CoaBt Liberals may or may not come into line,
but the Liberals of the upper coun
try know very definitely that whioh
they want, They possess an organization of their own, and it is up to
that organization or council to pro
duoe a platform of whioh they are
not ashamed, and which has the
courage of its opinions, as speedily
as possible.
THE GRAND TRUNK PACIFIC
The Grand Trunk Pacifio plan,
says the Toronto Telegram, will
be adorned with the usual superfluity of paper safeguards whioh
sound loud in politics and mean
nothing in practice. The free use
of the railway from Monoton to
Winnipeg for ten years iB equivalent to a cash subsidy of $10,000,-
000. The country will have virtually no security in its dealings
with the Grand Trunk other
than the security whioh is created
with its own money. The country
guarantees the road over the the
prairie. The country guarantees
the road through the mountains.
The country does everything except share in tbe profits whioh will
come to the construction companies of insiders or in the earnings of a railway which will belong to the Grand Trunk without
cost to its promoters.
The fact that the Grand Trunk
Pacifio scheme should be considered as an improvement upon preceding schemes is an awful commentary on the character of Canada's dealings with the railway
question. Yet the scheme is an
improvement. It is better than
the schemes which the Opposition
has swallowed without question.
The country has to pay for the
railway which the country will not
own. The partisan folly of Cana-
and the weakness of tbeir parties
*t Ottawa have deomed Canada lo
the bitter consequences of an insane railway polioy. The present
proposal appears to be a mitiga-"
tion of these consequences. The
oountry will pay. The country
always pays. It is bad enough
for the country, as a whole, to pay
the cost of the road in the first
place. It is worse for the com
merce, industry and agricultural
interest of the oountry to be taxed
by the over-capitalization of the
road in the second place. It seems
to be inevitable tbat Canada should
have to part with the price of thn
Grand Trunk Pacific Bcheme. If
the Opposition does its duty legislation should be aimed at the practice of the construction company
motives by which promoters give
contracts to themselves, and the
country should at least have tbe
satisfaction of being free to use the
road that was built with its money
without having to pay freight and
passeDger rates sufficient to return
dividends on watered stock,

THE ENTENTE CORDIALE
Friendly    Relations    Be
tween   Great Britain
and France.
Paris, July 17.—Deputy Baudin,
Minister of Publio Works in the
Waldeek-Rousseau Cabinet, writing on the entente cordiale, shows
that French commerce with England amounts to 22 3 per cent of
the total foreign trade of the re
publio, while the British Ialands
receive 30 per cent of. the entire
exports from France. The
French export to England 1277
million francs, and the French im
port from England 572 millions.
France comes fourth in the list
of England's customers, but she
employs the British merchant
navy more than her own, spending
360,000,000 francs thereon. On the
other hand, France enjoys great
advantages from British tourists.
M. Baudin regards 500,000,000
francs as a safe estimate of the
annual value of the British tourist
traffic. Thus M. Baudin regards
Britain's annual contribution to
France as varying from one and a
half to two milliards of francs.
Hence good relations are essential.

is stated that it has 140 miles of

used underground 11,000,000 feet
of timber in 1901. Its production
of copper for that year was 20,000
tons. It employs 1800 men. Its
new smelter now being built at
Douglas, which is 294 feet wide,
with a capacity of treating 1800
tons of ore every 24 hours, is almoBt

RUSSIA IS ADVANCING
About to Recognize Principle of Acknowledging
Unions.
London, July 16.—The Times'
Russian correspondents say that in
order to allay the growing agitation among the working classes in
Russian government proposes to
grant workmen some right for collective bargaining with employers,
subject to a strong bureaucratic
supervision.
A measure for this object passed
the Imperial Council, and awaits
the Tsar's approval.
The principle of the measure is
the election of elders who will confer with managers of establishments and authorities on questions
arising out of contracts. It is
feared that the authorities will
sanction the election only of those
subservient to them, who will not
heed the interests of men or employers.

THE EVENING WORLD. ROSSLAND B. C, JULY 17, 1903.
THE  METRIC  SYSTEM
Reasons Urged in Defence
of the Present Established Rule.
The following interesting letter,
indicative of the reasons of the
strong opposition to the general introduction ol the Metrio System,
has been addressed to the Editor
of Scientific American:
"The editorial, the Metric System, in your issue for May 16,
mentions two of the reasons why
the system is opposed, but fails to
mentions the reason whioh leads
all others in importance,   namely:
"The substitution of the millimetre (or the inch involves the
Abandonments ol all mechanical
standards based on the inch.
"This proposition was discussed
at length in my paper on this subject, whioh was read at the last
meeting of the Amerioan Society of
Meohanioal Engineers. In the
discussion, which occupied an entire afternoon and evening, no rebuttal worthy of the name was
offered. Suoh rebuttal is in fact
scarcely possible since the proof is
not based on deduction merely, but
is a simple matter of experience.
To the extent to whioh Amerioan
and English manufacturers have
used the metrio system, to the
same extent have tbey abandoned
sizes and standards based on the
inch. Germany uses English pitch
threads almost exclusively, and she
measures them just as we do—in
inches. In other words, in order
to retain English threads, Germany
is obliged to retain the English
inch' as we must retain it if we
are to save our standards.
"Your comparison of American
and English money is part of the
metric stock in trade. As my paper has it:
" 'The superiority of the decimal system as applied to currency
is largely due to the great amount
of adding to be done. With dsy
book, journal, ledger, cash book,
trial balance, balance sheet, invoice
inward and itjvpice outward alike,
it is add, add, add, and then add
some more. One bookkeeper in a
good sized faotory office will do
more adding than the whole shop
and drawing office force combined.
When it comes to multiplication or
division, vulgar fractions are often
the simpler.'
"If your readers doubt thiB, let
them multiply or divide some
number by i and then bv its
decimal equivalent ,3333,or even by
i anil then by its equivalent ,25.
"The metric advocates should get
over the idea, which is unworthy of
intelligent men, that the opposition to their system is based on
simple purblind conservatism. It
is based on the desire to save our
system of meohanical standards,
which is worth a thousandfold the
value whioh the metric advocates
claim for their system and a mil-
lionfold its aotual value. This
system of standards is the result
of half ii century of laborious effort,
and on it, more than any other one
thing, American manufacturing
supremacy depends.

Gorgeous If True
One of the extraordinary mining
romances that come from the Lardeau is that of a Copper Mountain
Syndicate composed of Nelson and
Vancouver men.who hold 27 claimB
on Copper mountain, staked two
olaims wide as ope claim, did not
give sufficient width to cover the
ledge, which is claimed to be 2000
feet wide. The owners claim to
have copper ore consisting of
bornite and chalcopyrite over this
huge area and say their assays run
up to 64 per cent copper. They
only want a million dollars oash
for "the biggest thing in British
Columbia."—Phoenix Pioneer.

CONSERVATIVE PLATFORM
[Adopted nt Revolstoko, September 13th, 100GZ.J
1. Thnt this convention reaffirms the policy
of t ho party in matters of provincial road* and
trails; thu ownership and control of railways
nnd thc development of the agricultural resources of the provinco as laid down in tho
pint form adopted in October, 1899, which is as
follows;
"To actively aid in thc construction of trail*
throughout tho undeveloped pmlions of the
provinco nnd tho building of provincial trunk
roads of public necessity.
"To adopt the principles of government ownership of railways in so fnr as the circumstances of the province will admit, and the
adoption of the principle (hat no bonus should
be granted to nny railway company which
does not give the government of tne provinco
control of rates ovw linos bonuscd, together
with the option of purchase.
"To actively assist by state aid in tho development of tho agricultural resources of tho
province."
2. That in lhe meantime nnd until the railway policy above sot forth can be accomplished, a general mil way act be passed* giving
freedom to construct mil ways under certain
approved regulations, analogous to the system
that has resulted in such extensive railway
construction in the United States, with so
much advantage to trade and commerce.
3. That to encourage tho mii.ing Industry,
tho tnxntiou of metalliferous mines should bo
on tho basis of apercontagc on tho not profits,
4. That tho govornment ownership of tele
phone systems should be brought about as a
first stop in tlie acquisition of publio utilities.
5. That a portion of every coal area hereafter to bo disposed of should be reserved from
sale or lease, so that state owned mines mny bo
easily accessible, if their operation becomes
necessary or advisable.
fi. That in the pulp land leases provision
should bu made for reforesting and that steps
should bo taken for the general preservation of
forests by guarding against the wasteful destruction of timber.
7. That the legislature and govornment of
the province should persevere in tho offort to
secure the exclusion of Asiatic labor.
8. That thc matter of bettor terms in tho
way of subsidy and appropriations for tho
province should be vigorously pressed upon the
Dominion government.
9. That tlie sii ver-Iead industries of t ho province bo fostered and encouragod by the imposition of increased customs duties on lead and
load products imported into Canada, and that
tho Conservative members of the Dominion
House bo urged to support any motion introduced for such a purpose,
IU. That as industrial disputes almost invariably result in groat loss and injury both to tho
parties directly concerned and to tho public,
legislation should be passed to provide means
for an amicable adjustment of such disputes
between employers and employes.
11, That it is advisable to foster the manufacture of tho raw products of tho provinco
within tho province as far as practicable by
means of taxation ou t he said raw products.sub-
ject to rebate of the same in whole or part
when manufactured in British Columbia.

SIMILKAMEEN CITY,
Now Is the Time to Buy Lots
in Similkameen City, B. 6.
CAMP HEDLEY is the most talked ol camp in the provinoe, and situated in the oentre is Similkameen City, surrounded by
rioh mines which will shortly have large payrolls. Over 200 lots have been sold to business people who realize that Similkameen will become the metropolis of this dietrict. The Nickel Plate mines 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 smelter at Similkameen City which will cost about a million dollars. Besides the Nickel Plate group of olaims being developed by one of the richest
mining oompaniea in North America, there are several other groups and properties whioh will shortly be developed, among them
being the Kingston Mines, Bollo, Wellington, Winnipeg, Red Chief and Pollock. Situated as it is in the beautiful Similkameen
valley, midway between Princet-n and Keremeos, and protected from all opposition in the valley by adjoining a large Indian
reservation, this townsite will become one of the principal mining camps of the Paoifio Northwest. It was only a short time ago
that lots in Roesland, Nelson, Greenwood and other mining centres were Belling for the same price that tbey are today being sold
for in Similkameen,   Come in before the boom and double your money.
Similkameen City to Have Two Railways.
The Victoria, Vanconver & Eastern and the Canadian Pacific railways are starting immediate construction for the Similkameen,
whioh will make this town a railroad centre and divisional point, and when these competing lines are completed through to the
Paoifio coast ihey will become the main through lines, being the shortest route from the interior to tbe coast. A large sawmill is
running steadily on the 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, which is looated in the centre of the whole Similkameen valley and will become the largest distributing point and
mining oentre in British Columbia.
