All the ladies in the city, especially Mrs. Malcolm, queen bee,

of the Order of the MaocabeeB of the

Treasurer ol the American

United States, eaoh of which sends
delegates to the Counoil. Where
the societies are mixed the delegates
sent must be women, the men being compelled to take a back seat.

who is also a prominent member of
the Order of the Eastern Star,which
Bhe joined in Detroit some 15 years
ago, being praotioaUy her first entrance into society work. She
also belongs to the Woman's Relief corps and various women's
dubs instituted for literary and
charitable purposes.
Mrs. Hollister gave a representative of the World, who interviewed
her thiB afternoon at the Allan
Hotel, between a Sohool of Instruction given this morning at the
Miners Union Hall and a public
reception at the Allan, which was
being held between one and two
o'clock, some interesting facts. She
stated that the Order of the Ladies
of the Maccabees haa a membership of 125,000, which was rapidly
increasing. Last month 5200 certificates were signed, and the rate
of increase is generally between
4000 and 5000 a month. The hive
in Rossland was very enthusiastic
and had about 100 members with
some 40 applications pending.
These carried protection to the extent of $100,000. Besides this there
were in the provinoe nine other
hives, none, however, as large as
that of Rossland, though great
strides had been made lately in
Victoria. The total provincial
membership is 450 with a protection of $370,000.
Mrs. Hollister oame in last night
from Winnipeg where she was very
well received, the looal press speaking of her as the only lady who had
had so flattering a reception since
the daya of Misa Willard. The
Maccabees are strong in the prairie
city and Mrs. Hollister seemed
quite pleased with the progress
made. On her arrival here last
night she was met by a deputation
of Knights and LadieB of the Maccabees, the two orders although
affiliated, being entirely separate
organizations, both from Grand
Forks which sent quite a strong
deputation. Tbis morning she was
taken by the Ladies around the
city and showed tbe mines where
she was received with the utmost
courtesy and is muoh impressed
with the magnificent future evidently lying before this city. The
scenery also greatly charms her as
every other visitor to this mountain camp.
After the drive came the Sohool
of Instruction and the reception at
the Allan Hotel, from whioh she
is proceeding to the Miners Union
Hall, where the following programme is being rendered:
Chairman — Mrs. Alice Long,
Past Commander.
Music—Graham's orchestra.

First Step to Be Taken
This Evening.
All Ranks and Conditions to Join in
to Give the Camp a Rattling
Send Off.
The celebration committee will
get down to business this evening,
meeting at the call of the honorary
president, Mayor Dean, at the city
hall at 8 o'clock. The business
will be the appointment of a permanent Becretary, and also chairman of the general executive committee. Subcommittees on parade,
drilling, sports, reception, accommodation, games, advertising, programme, finanoe, will be formed.
Subcommittees will probably be
permitted to seleot their own chairman. The miners, of course, are
chiefly interested in the parade and
the drilling, but naturally will not
object to representation being conceded them on other committees.
There is every likelihood of a
harmonious gathering whioh indeed
iB absolutely necessary for success.
A mutual spirit of concession, and
an elimination of all partizan feeling will do muoh to promote, this.
The celebration is entirely a citizens affair, and is being got up by
no particular set or party. Daring
the celebration the C. P. R. employes, a union body of men, will
take the opportunity to parade and
other similar bodies in town will
do the same with them. It is
hoped that the civic dignitaries and
the business men generally will
join in.
Mrs. Hollister is a lady of much
character, as well befitting one who
has the supreme say in the councils
of 125.000 women and who is a
leading spirit with some 2,000,000
on this continent. She is reputed
an excellent speaker of much intellectuality, whicb, coupled with a
vivacity all her own, goes far to explain tbe charm of her personality.

Virgil once wrote a line of poetry
so apt and expressive that it
has- become a proverb, says the
Viotoria Colonist. It taught the
lesson to "fear the Greeks even
when they come bearing gifts." It
is astonishing the number of
Greeks who have recently come to
the rescue of the British Empire
against the designs of the arch-
traitor, Mr. Joseph Chamberlain.
Among the latest is that distinguished Irish-American politician
Mr. Bourke Cochrane. For the
abilities and eloquenoe of that
gentleman we have the highest
admiration, but we can never forget that his whole personality is
imbued with hostility to the British Empire which all his eloquenoe
has been used to express. Mr.
Cochrane after having fomented
race bitterness to dismember the
Empire, after having stimulated
American hostility to isolate it,
and after having applauded the
Boers to destroy it, now weeps in
well-feigned sorrow over the humiliating end to which it is destined
if it accepts the ideas and adopts
the policy of Mr. Joseph Chamber'
lain. That the United States pro
fits in the slightest degree by hav
ing the free run of the British market, Mr. Cochrane denies. A trade
bargain between the various parts
of the Empire would be fatal to its
integrity, and the element of pro
taction in it would be an effort to
do business at a loss and to remedy
it by taxation and legislation
"The integrity of the Empire" is a
strange phrase in the mouth of Mr.
Bourke Cochrane, seeing that it is
something he has devoted his life
and his talents to destroy. It Mr.
Chamberlain is now doing so for
him, why should he interfere? To
what pass has the Empire come
tbat it must appeal to him for protection, or that he should voluntarily offer it? Had we been
doubtful of Mr. Chamberlain's
programme, and questioned its
feasibility and advantage, the fact
that Mr. Bourke Cochrane had
come forward to oondemn it would,
in itself, be enough to induce ub to
reconsider our opinion. If Mr
Chamberlain's polioy were to be
judged alone by what the enemies
of Great Britain have to Bay about
it, it would be accepted in itB en
tirety tomorrow by Great Britain's
But the basin tapped by Rock
creek looks to the north. It follows therefore that while the snow
on Rock creek still lingers, that on
Stoney oreek has all disappeared
because of its southern exposure.
Therefore when Stoney creek begins
to dry up Rock creek is still in full
flood, and is able to supplement
the supply from Stoney creek, until
the autumn rains again augment
the volume of water in all the
creek beds. But while this is all
very well for the summer dry Bea-
son, it is not at all applicable to
the winter dry season which falls
in February. Here comes in the
southern exposure of Stoney and
Little Sheep creeks. The sun, beginning to get powerful, melts to a
certain extent the snow on the
basin of both these creeks. But
the amount thus gained is not sufficient for the needs of the city. The
supply from Rock creek has gone
to a minimum and little or no
water is derivable from that source.
From Stoney oreek the amount is
insufficient. This is not" always
the caBe, but it happened this
spring and may happen again at
any springtime. Hence the advisability of connecting with the system from the east and west forks of
Little Sheep oreek. The city has a
first record on these waters above
the level of 3021 feet whicb is nearly 400 feet below the level of Columbia avenue. Now the Le Roi
has a flume from the east fork of
Little Sheep creek. This fork is
supplemented by the water brought
by the Jumbo flume from the west
fork. Further the Le Roi No. 2
are constructing from another
point, lower down, a third flume,
also from the west fork. These
three practically brine all their
water, with the exception of that
used in the Jumbo, to the Black
Bear and thence to the lower pond.
A connection made between the oity
and the Le Roi system of water is
a connection made with waters of
Little Sheep oreek. It is for this
reason that the making of the con
nection is urged. An added rea
son is that the city, having the
prior right to the water on Little
Sheep oreek above the level of 3021
feet is not obliged to return it to
Litlle Sheep creek, though no doubt
this could be done by the ooncen
trator, using the city water, if
wanted by the Silica plant.as there
is absolutely no desire to check any
industry which will promote the
interests of the camp by whom'
soever undertaken.

There is a potent reason lying
behind the city council's wish to
oonnect the main on Kootenay
avenue with the water works of the
Le Roi mine, whioh was not alluded
to in the recent editorial of the
World on the subject. At present
the water system of the city derives
its supply from Stoney and Rock
creeks. The supply from Stoney
is never sufficient for the needs of
the city during the two dry seasons. The aspect of the area
drained by this creek is southward.

H. Gaylord Wilshire is the edi
torjand proprietor of Wilshire's
Magazine. He is an ardent So
cialist. He believes in the government ownership of industries, and
when told that the government
cannot undertake big enterprises,
he is in the habit of triumphantly
pointing to the administration ot
the postoffice in the United States.
Lately, however, an attempt was
made by certain Washington peccant, postoffice officials, to hold up
this editor for $5000, the which if
he did cot pay as he was to be told,
and as he was told,t hat as his mag'
azine was nothing but an advertising sheet he would have to pay
heavier postage. The threat was
carried out, and Mr. Wilshire accordingly brought his magazine
over to Canada, where he publishes
it, and having advantage of the
postal arrangements between this
country and the United States, is
able to reach his old subscribers
without having to pay the blackmail demanded.
editorially on the case, ends up
with "Now that the postal frauds
to which Mr. Wilshire refused to
submit have been exposed, he is
naturally triumphant, but his faith
in the wisdom of turning all things
over to the government is strangely
unshaken." The writer of that sentence must be mentally warped.
Supposing he heard tbat a prominent private firm had failed, would
he insist that private ownership
was mistaken? Would bis faith in
private ownership be Bhaken? Supposing he read up the reports of
the commercial agencies, and found
out for himself the faot that 90 per
cent of the men in business in tbe
United States fail, would he still be
an ardent admirer of private ownership? Should he further prosecute
his enquiries, and look up the rail
way reports, and find out for himself that one-half of the mileage of
the railways in the United States
had been in the hands of the receivers, and many thousands of
miles are still in that condition;
that not ten per oent of those railways paid over five per cent; that
the charges for the telegraphs un
der private ownership is double
that whioh it, is in Great Britain under publio ownership, would
his faith in private ownership be
Isolated cases prove nothing. Mr.
Wilsbire has no quarrel with publio ownership, That some officials
were guilty of oorrupt practices,
proves nothing. Are there no defaulting secretaries, cashiers, confidential olerks, directors, under private ownership? It would have to
be shown Mr. Wilshire tbat the
proportion of oorrupt employes was
greater under public than under
private ownership. Even then-
and the allegation is not true, Mr.
Wilshire need merely point out,
as tbe World has pointed out, the
fearful evil of the doctrine "to the
victor belongs the spoils." Under
efficient oivil service in Great Britain, in India, in France, in Germany, there is no temptation to
dishonesty, and dishonesty is there
fore praotioaUy eliminated. There
is no comparison between these
publio officials and the offiotals of
private ownership. Even in this
country, the same will probably
hold true, although our civil ;er
vice, like that of the United States,
is a farce.
Truly Mr. Wilshire is wise to be
unshaken in his creed. It praotioaUy has been unassailed, except in
the opinion of a man who must
have forgotten any little logio
crammed up in his college course.

Shamrock the Handsomer Boat but
Is Smaller With Less Sail
The Shamrock III is a marked
departure, in some respects, from
any challenger that has been sent
over from the other side for many
yean past. We have to go back
to Valkyrie II to find a midship
section that bears any similarity to
the easy bilges and full garboards
that distinguish Shamrock III so
sharply from any of her immediate
predecessors, and in this respect
she is the most "wholesome" yacht
sf any of the existing challengers
and defenders of the 90 foot olass.
Having said this much, it has to
be admitted that all the other
characteristic features of the boat
are marked by the extremes of
beam, draft and overall length to
whioh designers have been driven
in their attempt to carry a maximum amount of sail under a rule
which, unfortunately, puts no limit
whatever upon sail area—an unfortunate omission, to whioh more
than anything else is to be attributed the absurdly exaggerated
proportions ot the modern racing
90 footer.
The over-all length of the Sham-
rook ia close to 140 feet, the water
line length slightly under 90 feet;
beam about 25 feet 6 inohes—not
22 feet 6 inohes as reported by a
cablegram sent out by the builders
of the boat—draft in racing trim
21 feet, and her displacement in
neighborhood of 150 tons. Although her midship sec ion is large,
the lines, whioh have been carried
out with the skill that characterizes all the Fife boats, are so sweet
and fair that she looks at first
glance more like a 70 footer than a
boat built to the full 90 foot limit.
The sections throughout are round
and fair, free from sudden changes
of ourve or "humps." "Bound as
a barrel" iB a term lhat may justly
be applied to Shamrock III. She
should show small initial stability
—a valuable feature when tbe wind
is light and the sea troubled—
while her deep and easy bilges will
give her great sail oarrying power
when she is heeled to her best sailing lines. The boat will be comfortable in a seaway and she will
do her best work over the windward and leeward courses.
Her deep midship section will be
a drawback to tbe boat in reaching,
especially when the higher speeds
are attained and wave making begin!, and on this point of sailing
Reliance will probably have no
difficulty in leaving her. To wind
ward, judged purely by their
models, Shamrock III should be
the better boat; but Reliance has
shown such unexpectedly good
windward qualities that it is likely
that she will be able to hold her
on this point of sailing and possibly pull away from her. Before
the wind, under spinnaker, Sham-
rook III, because of her smaller
wetted surface, should be the more
slippery boat; but, on the other
hand, the enormous sail plan oi
the Reliance will probably outweigh her greater wetted surface
and pnll her down to the leeward
mark some minutes ahead of   her
more handsome sister.
The Bail plan of Shamrook II
was found to be so pre-eminently
satisfactory that it has been adopt-
ed with very little ohange in Sham-
rook III, the later boat carrying
about a couple of hundred more
square feet of sail. The mast is
158 feet in length, and the boom
104 feet, with a base line of 78 feet
for the forward triangle. The rig
is thuB, relatively to the Reliance,
narrow for its height and favorable
for windward work. The question
now is whether the deeper bodied,
rounder and sweeter boat, with her
generous sail plan of 14,400 square
feet, can hold her own with a flat
floored, shoal, full bowed boat oarrying fully 1500 square feet more
canvas. It is a dear case of a gamble on the weather, with the odds
largely in favor of the overgrown
boat. In winds that will allow the
Reliance to carry her sail spread
it is thought there is not a doubt
aB to the outcome; but should the
wind pipe up to a strength of 20 to
25 knots, we prophesy dire trouble
for the scow and a good fighting
chance for the smaller boat.

muoh advantage to trade and commerce.
3. That to encourage the mil.ing industrv,

Now Is the Time to Buy Lots
in Similkameen City, B. 6.
CAMP HEDLEY is the most talked of oamp in the province, and situated in the centre ie Similkameen City, surrounded by
rioh mines whioh will shortly have large payrolls. Over 200 lots have been sold to business people who realize that Similkameen will become the metropolis of this district. The Nickel 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 smelter at Similkameen City which will cost about a million dollars. Besides the Nickel Plate group of claims being developed by one of the richest
mining companies in North America, there are several other groups and properties which will shortly be developed, among them
being the Kingston Mines, Rollo, Wellington, Winnipeg, Red Chief and Pollock. Situated as it is in the beautiful Similkameen
valley, midway between Princetrn 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 Rossland, Nelson, Greenwood and other mining centres were selling for the Bame price that they are today being Bold
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 Pacific railways are starting immediate construction for the Similkameen,
which will make thil town a railroad centre and divisional point, and when these competing lines are completed through to tbe
Paoifio ooast Ihey will beoome the main through lines, being the shortest route from the interior to the coast. A large sawmill ia
running steadily on the weBt addition, the only available timber for miles around. Tbe 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 thia
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.

London Times Is Exposing
the Fabrications of
London, July 16.—The Times'
Russian correspondents throw
doubt on the genuineness of the
attack made on Krushevan, the
anti-Semitic editor. It was represented that Krushevan narrowly
esoaped assassination at the hands
of the JewB, but Teatchersky ridicules the whole story, and suggests
that Krushevan, "having got into
hot water in consequence of his
philanthropic efforts to save Kishineff from the Jews," oame to St.
Petersburg to restore his prestige.
"Here occurred the terrible attempt
of the Jews, or was it a counterfeit
presentment of tne Jews, to assassinate him?
Testchersky waxes merry over
"the stage ruffian, who,armed with
a huge knife, attaoked Krushevan
in a crowded street, and, having
scratched him on the neck, allowed himself to be quietly arrested by
Krushevan and marched off to the
police station without further ado."
It must have been the crowning
misfortune for Krushevan, says
Testchersky, that the assassin instead of getting penal servitude for
life was sentenced only to a few
day's imprisonment.
