statement i
In view of a possible visitation of
smallpox the physicians in this "city
have agreed, in order to secure an efficient and comprehensive performance of
this neeessary precaution, to charge,
from this date, tbe small fee of one dollar in each case of vaccination or re-
vaccination.
MINES AND MINING
LOCAL   JOTTINGS,
Dr. 0 J. Fagan of Victoria, secretary
of tbe Provincial Hoard of Health, arrived in the city Tuesday afternoon in
connection with quarantine matters.
In an interview with a Mis-i-at representative he said that every precaution has
been taken by the Provincial authorities, and by the city officials in towns
along the border to prevent smallpox
contagion on this side of the line, and he
thinks with the enforcement of the regulations there is little or no danger of
smallpox being Introduced. Arrangements have been made for tbe funiign-
tion of all mail matter, and for the appointment of properly qualified health
officers, and for a supply of vaccine
points. Dr. Jakes of this city bus been
appointed health officer for the district,
and Dr. Schon. medical health officer
for the city, will co-operate with him a-
far as Greenwood is concerned. Dr.
White, Fairview, has been appointed
health officer there and will look carefully after the Indians. Dr. Fagan say*
that full inquiry has been made, and so
far as can be ascertained there is no
smallpox either at Republic or Chesaw
in the state of Washington. There are
eases of smallpox among the Indians on
the Colville reservation, and the Washington authorities have been communicated with with n view to taking steps
to prevent the spread of the disease
among them and beyond their limits.
By an agreement with the Mayor and
eouncil, vaccine points will be furnished
free of charge to persons who are too
poor to pay for them, and the medical
men of the city have agreed to vaccinal I
all applicants at the rate of one dollar
each. Dr. Pagan has been in the town-
all along the line, mid on his way out
will go down to Spokane,   where he wil
isoertaln nil the facts as to the epidemic
there.   From information already in hi.
possession, he says smallpox  exists  ill
Spokane, Eastern Washington, Idaho,
Montana and Iowa, but tho epidemic an
tar exists only in a mild form, He says
there is no cause for alarm, and tin-
public may rest assured that as soon u-
there is any  reason  to fear danger on
thiB side, there will be no  icealmenl
of the facts. So far us known, bow-
ever, there are no cases in British Columbia. He says the quarantine, which
has been put in force, will be effective
but cannot be absolute. He would like
to warn people to stop taking single eop-
ies of newspapers sent by individuals,
as they may be a source of infection.
So far as vaccination is concerned, Dr.
Fagan says It is an absolute preventive
against smallpox, but. one which is not
taken advantage of as fully as it
should be.
The question of compulsory vaccination lias been agitated, but compulsion
is an extreme, and not a popular measure. The Provincial Hoard of Health
prefer rather to depend upon the efforts
of the press in educating the public to
its necessity and to the good sense of the
people. Dr. Fagan gave ri number of
facts as to the effectiveness of vaccination as a preventive, taken from tin-
official record-, but these it Is deemed
unneccessary to publish, as the public
are more or less familiar with that phase
of the subject. Dr. Fagan returned on
Wednesday afternoon.
Vaccination.
On the authority   of the city health
$20,000   More  Plant for the
Mother Lode.
The Greenwood Mlnkh gives a statement showing that the new buildings
erected in (ireenwood during tbe past
year are of the aggregate value of $320,-
000. Tbe M in Kit very correctly says this
is a great record for a city of its age and
size. Moreover, the satisfactory assurance is given that tbe demand for building accommodation seems to be increasing, especially for residential property.

A. I., (iartshore and wife, and C. B.
Bowman and wife, all of Vancouver,
were in the city this week on their
honeymoon trip. .Mrs. Gartsbore is the
daughter of Charles Wilson, Q. C, of
Vancouver, who recently visited Greenwood in company witli Sir Charles
Tupper.
George 0. Hinton, of the firm of
George 0. Hinton & Company, electricians, Vancouver, is in tbe city in connection with his contracts here.
On Sunday won'tig last thtrliev. Mr.
Mr. Campbell, Presbyterian minister,
preached a sermon of especial interest,
taking for his text the words, " Righteousness exalteth a nation." He said,
in the course of bis remarks, that history had shown that one great nation
after another had come to the front, and
then fallen into decay. In considering
the cause of the decline and fall of great
nations, it could not be ascribed to the
decadence of their art, their politics or
their letters, but to the deterioration of
personal character. Personal character,
be contended, was tbe greatest factor iu
a nation's life, and it was our plain duty
to see that iu our  case  il   should   stand
the test, This led up to a question <>t
local concern.   There was an Institution
ill our  midst  which   tended   to  tempt
young men und Influence them for evil.
lie Intended to light it to the bitter end,
and he solicited co-operation in the
same   direction,      No  man could be  a
Christian, he said, who did not endeavor
to do all that he could to uphold  what
was good and right in the government
of tbe town, and did not oppose what
tended in the opposite direction. The
best test of what was to be supported or
opposed on moral grounds was found in
the opinion of good women.

W. P. Williams, representing the
Jenckes .Machinery Co., is in tbe city
and is going to open a branch office here.
In company with W. C. Noble, manager of the Buckhorn, and Paul Messer,
representing F'raser & Cbalmer, the big
mining machinery firm, paid a visit to
tlie Buckhorn, Mother Lode and Sunset
mines in tbe Deadwood camp this week.
Both of these gentlemen referred to
were immensely pleased with the outlook, and it is possible that Mr. Messer
may establish an agency here as well.
In conversation with the latter, he said
that tbe progress of this district was
really wonderful, and the prospects of
the Boundary becoming a great mining
country were very bright indeed. As
representative of the largest mining machinery lirm in the world be has had
ample opportunity to judge, having personal knowledge of mining in various
parts of America and in South Africa.
There are excellent opportunities, he
thinks, of bis company doing a great
business in the interior of British Columbia. In regard to the firm of Fraser
A Chalmers, who have large works in
the United States and Great Britain,
they would only compete with Canadian
companies on large contracts. Mr.
Messer went out on Tuesday afternoon
and will probably return at an early
date.
The   Buckhorn  has   now passed the
100-foot level, where a first-class station
has been   built, in   sinking   the  main
shaft, and is sinking to tbe 200-foot level.
A new hoist and compressor are  in operation   and   are   working   admirably.
The Company is both sinking and drift-
i ing.    The drifting is in the direction of
! the main ore body, and small chutes of
jure are  being encountered.     If  is ex-
i peeled  that   the 200-foot  level   will he
reached by the first Of  March.     Messrs.
j Williams and Messer,  who visited  the
j mine   Ibis    week,  both   highly  eompli-
: niented tbe management on tbe success-
; ful operations and prospects of the mine.
Mr. Frederick Keller,   manager of the
j British   Columbia   Copper Company,
Limited, in charge of the operations on
the Mother Lode mine, in the Deadwood
camp,   lias   placed   an   order with  the
Jencif.es   Machine Company   for about
$20,000 worth of machinery.  The plant
ordered consists of a drilling  plant, of 20
' drills, a 20J-borse power Corliss hoisting
engine, two 80-horse power boilers, six
i heavy ore cars and two cages, as well as
other paraphernalia.   All of this plant
must be delivered within four months
under penalty of.a large forfeiture. The
machinery will be of sufficient capacity
j to   hoist "500 tons from a depth of 1,000
i feet.

"The Absent-Minded Beggar's" Concert a
Great Success A Series of First-Class Entertainments Last and Tills Week.
The past and present weeks have been
fertile in public entertainments. On
Thursday night of last week there were
no leas than five attractions advertised,
and all but one were successfully carried
through. McEwen, the hypnotist, gave
way to the superior attraction of the
champion skater, and gave those present tickets for the succeeding evtning.
Strong in confidence in his power to
make up on the following Friday and
Saturday evenings, and anxious to see
McCulloch skate, ho was quite willing to
forego the profits of one night's performance. Indeed, under the great
strain which bis entertainments involve,
he was undoubtedly glad of the respite
which one night off would give him.
McCulloch did not disappoint any of
tbe large number who went to see him.
His feats are marvellous to the ordinary
onlooker. He is simply a muster of his
work, the product of developed physical
power ami training His fancy skating
and stilt performances were perhaps the
most interesting of his repertoire ; but
bis jumping was certainly the moat remarkable. A man who can jump at all
on skates does well, but a man who can
clear five barrels lying side by side is a
wonder. He succeeded withgreat ease
apparently. His skating against a number of amateurs, each having a clear advantage, and winning bands down, was
worthy of admiration. McCulloch is a
strong, graceful performer, and an all
round athlete as well. He is pleased
with Greenwood, and intends coming
again. The proprietors of the skating
rink are to be congratulated upon their
enterprise in securing him ; and generally aro to be commended for the success
of their (Sorts in supplying at this early
stage of the city's growth the opportunity for healthful and manly exercise.
McEwon had two  bumper  audiences
! on Friday and Saturday  evenings,  dur-
j ing which he amply sustained  his  re-
! pulation.    In his way' be is a  prodigy
I A young man without education  he has
' come right to the front iu his profession
as   an   oppositionist   in    psychological
! phenomena, and probably ranks first as
, an entertainer in bis class.     As a stu-
| dent  of   mesmerism,   hypnotism    and
j mind-reading, so far as Ida own powers
j enable him to theorize and generalize,
| be   is   an   interesting   lecturer,    lie is
frank in his admissions, and does  not
assume the role of mystic.    Mb work is
all well done, and his various feats were
as satisfactory as they were amusing to
tbe audience.    Hypnotism he cannot explain any more than the scientist can
tell us what that life is the manifestations
of which he dogmatizes upon.    He lias
definitions, of course.     Mesmerism  lie
describes as a conscious and  voluntary,
and  hypnotism as an  unconscious aiid
voluntary subjection to another's  will.
No one, lie says, can be subjected against
his will.    While there is such a thing as
mind-reading, he says to a largo extent
it is a trick���muscie  reading,  in  fact.
It involves no severe nerve strain to tbe
verge of catalepsis, as tome performers
would  mako us  believe.     McEwen   is
coming again in tlie spring, and will undoubtedly draw good houses.
The most remarkable thing about
Burns   is  that  he  is  never forgotten.

and Other Matters.
The Tenders for City Printing.���Contract for Scavengering Let���Furnishings for the Fire Department.
At the regular meeting of the council,
the Mayor, who was out of town, was
"absent" on roll call, Aid. Galloway
was elected to the chair. All the other
aldermen were in their places. Minutes and communications as follows were
read:
F, F. Ketchum acknowledged appointment as assessor and collector. L.
S. Moulton Barrett and R. Smailes notified the council of their willingness to
continue as sureties for G. B. Taylor as
city treasurer, consequent upon his reappointment. Dr. Jakes expressed
his satisfaction on account of confirmation of last year's agreement in connection with tbe city hospital. T. S. Road-
ley applied for the position of city collector and assessor, which he understood
was to become vacant. Jones & Jones,
plasterers, asked for permission to use
twenty feet of the street in front of lots
18 and 19, block 7 for fifteen days.
The letter of Messrs. Barrett and
Smailes was referred to the city solicitor. The advisability of the main
street being used for building purposes
was discussed, in the light of a previous
adverse resolution, and Jones & Jones'
letter was referred to the street committee to use their discretion. After the
accounts bad been disposed of Mr. Alston, city engineer, was called in to give
some information as to sewerage. He
said that he had a fair idea of the septic system and its cost, although be hud
not fully obtained all data. Briefly, for
a city of 5,000, it would cost about $15,-
000, and woald require about 2,000 feet
of mains. Tlie main main would have
to go down tlie creek, with a tank at
flat around the bluff, but a better level
could bo obtained at the other end of
Anaconda. Tbe disposal of garbage was
another question. Cremation was tbe
best and only successful system. Tbe
cost of incineration would not be great.
He referred to an offer made by a gentleman to utilize tlie refuse, by burning
it, fer potash. Discussion then drifted
on to the subject of burning refuse in
the smelter furnace, and building special furnaces. Mr. Alston then explained
in detail the different systems of purifying sewage. By chemical processes putrefaction was arrested, the solids being
arrested and the liquids being purified,
and conveyed into running water, or the
sea. The septic tank system on the
otker hand assisted putrefaction, tlie
actios of bacteria reducing the whole
nsass to mineral ash, and comparatively
pure water, which was afterwards passed
through filteis, and then was pure and
drinkable. It was a very simple system, though still in its infancy, or experimental stage. The cost, however,
could not be definitely ascertained until
the levels from one end of the city to the
other were run. The cost referred to,
$15,000, didn't include the mains or
trendies, only tanks and installation.
On motion, tbe city engineer waB instructed to prepare a plan and estimates
of cost of a sewerage system.
On invitation of the finance commit-
the the two printing firms in the town
submitted a formal joint offer for print
ing, being tbe current rates charged business men of the city. Aid. Sharpe proposed that the different towns in tlie
Province should be written to to ascertain the prices paid there for the information of the council, and as a "check"
on our local firms Mr. Gosnell asked
for permission to speak. He protested
against such a course as involving an
unjust discrimination against the two
publishing firms, and was unheard of,
as well as an imputation on their honesty. Tbe prices quoted were those
charged to the business men of the city.
In any .event, the prices charged in
other towns, where competition was
keen, was no criterion of what would be
fair prices here. He stated that tbe
two offices paid the highest prices going
���union rates���and considering the disabilities in the way of freight, sparse-
ness of population, etc., it was manifestly unfair to take outside priees. It was
a course, too, not followed in the case of
any other lirm in the city. If tho motion carried he would withdraw the tender of his firm. Aid. Sharpe repudiated any notion of dishonesty on the
part of tbe local publishers, but as a
member of the finance committee be
wanted to know whether prices were
right or not. He was entirely at the
mercy of tbe local firms. Tbe proposal
then took the form o? a motion and
passed, Aid. Sutherland voting nay.
The council then took up the question
of water supply, the city engineer in
consultation, and discussed the various
sources, the best methods and systems���
including Boundary creek, Long lake,
artesian wells, pumping stations, gravitation, windmills, etc,, without, however, any action being taken.
The fire and light committee reported
having purchased 100 chairs for the city
hall at $2; and eight bedsteads at $17
each, for the fire department, including
springs and mattresses. Tlie committee
was instructed to purchase the necessary
furnishings for the lire department, and
awnings for the offices.
Tenders for Bcavengering were then
opened, from Levi H. Wright, McKinley & Chisbolm, and P. B. McElroy.
The tender of Levi II. Wright was accepted as follows:
Private Iioubos, once per mo $ .75

Alderman Sullivan brought up the
matter of firms coming in an*j auctioning goods off at cheap rates to tbe detriment of local merchants. The clerk
said they had a license for six months.
He gave notice to amend the by-law.
Notice was also given of a by-law to borrow money to pay the overdraft in the
bank.   Council adjourned at midnight.

It's only a small piece oi bunting,
It's only tin old colored rag;
Yet thousands bave died for it.s honor,
And shed their best blood for tho Hag.
It's charged with the Cross of Bt. Andrew,
Which of old Scotland's heroes has led;
It carries the Cross of St. Patrick,
For which Ireland's bravest have bled.
Joined with these on our own KngHsh ensign,
St. George's Red Cross on white held,
Round which from King Richard to Wolsely,
Britons conquer, or die, but ne'er yield.
It flutters in triumph oe'r ocean,
As free as wind and the wave;
And bondsmen from shackles unloosed,
'Neath its shadows no longer a slave.
��� It floats over Cyprus and Malta,
O'er Canada, the Indies, Hong Kong;
And Britons where'er their flags flying.
Claim the rights which to Britons belong.
We hoist it to show our devotion,
To our Queen, our country, our laws;
Tis the outward aud'visible emblem
Of advancement and liberty's cause.
You say it's a small piece of bunting,
You may call it an old colored rag;
Yet freedom has made it majestic,
And time has ennobled the Fag.

MUSIC AND MORALS.
Reference is made in a letter elsewhere to the points raised by Rev. D.
Campbell in connection with variety
theatres. The        Miner       sympa
thizes with those who desire to have a
concert hall and theatre free from the
influences, which are found so objectionable, and which in Spokane and
other places have led to their closing
down. In other words, the theatre per-
lormance should not be made an adjunct to beer rustling, in the same sense
that we should eat to live and not live to
eat. The objection to such places,
however, iB not the sale of beer in the
audience, but to "box rustling," and
the presence of women, who arc really
lower, in some cases, in the mural scale
than the regular habitues of hotiseB ol
ill-fame. The Influence of such conditions must be pernicious, let people say
what they will; and if the success of a
theatre depends on such conditions then
the theatre should fail. Thure is, however, no necesfity for that. We must
remember thai we live in a western
country, where il is useless to draw
lines too tightly, l-'iuir-lifths of the people, while iu un strict lenae Immoral,
are opposed to the moral regimen of Ontario cities, and any code on those lines
could not he enforced long or successfully Both sides must he reasonable.
Miners and prospectors, after days or
weeks in mines or the on hills, crave for
some form of amusement It is, however, or should be, an insult to ihem as a
class to say that they will not be satis-'
lied with anything less than perform-1
ances which smack of lewdness, and are j
coarsely suggestive ; and which are sup- j
plenientetl by box seances. It is safe to j
say that the great majority of miners
can and do enjoy a good, wholesome
song, or a clean comedy, or melodrama,
as well as any other portion of the community. They fully appreciate excellence and would be satisfied with program mei of even average merit, un-
gamished by the spice of salacious wit.
Moreover, ttiey do not crave the opportunity, under cover, of buying wine at
two prices for fairies of the green room.
The reasonable compromise between licentious extreme and  prudish   morality
is the regular old-fashioned hall, with
"beer and baccy" in the open, and concerts and popular plays behind the proscenium. If the former be allowed to
go so far, and the latter will be satisfied
with such reaeonable restriction, we
think a satisfactory solution would be
reached for the present. There can be
bo reasonable objection, in a mining
town, to a theatre run as suggested. In
fact, if all other right conditions are observed, it iB really absurd to object to
beer being sold in the body of  the hall.
On the other hand, we do not think it
ia necessary, as some contend, to run a
"wide open" theatre in order to attract
and keep the trade of the hills. If the
town will not support such an institution as is suggested, then it is evidently
an enterprise ahead of its time.
If it be deemed necessary in the interests of the city that a theatre should be
maintained, even at a loss, the Minkk
will contribute its share towards making
up the deficiency, in case contributions
are asked for such a cause.
INEXPLICABLE PROCEDURE.
At Monday's night council the chairman of the tire and light committtee reported that 100 chairs had been purchased for the Fire Department at $2
a, piece, and eight bedsteads at $17 each.
The report was adopted without debate.
Such conduct is inexplicable. Here is
T, M. Gulley & Co., who have practically
a monopoly of the furniture business in
Greenwood. Furniture is bought without even a tender being asked for.
Should not the finance committee first
bave ascritained from outside cities
what such furniture could be obtained
for? None of the members, so far as is
known, are up in the furniture business,
and are, therefore, completely at tea,
and at the mercy of local firms. We do
���ot suggest that the furniture should be
purchased outside of the city, but for
lliuir own information, and as a check
on local dealers, they should instruct
the clerk to write i. the clerks of other
cities in British Columbia and find out
what they pay for bedroom auitei and
chairs for the city officials. There is no
imputation that T. M. Gulley & Co.
would rob the city if they got a chance,
but it is well for the city to protect itself in every way possible. There can
at least be no harm in knowing {list
how much the lirm in i|iiestion ii getting into the city, even if it be decided to
be good policy to deal with Ihem instead
of going outside.
Tiik results of the recent by-elections
in Sherbrooke, Quebec, and Winnipeg
leave the Dominion Government in very
much the same condition as formerly.
In Sherbrooke, Mcintosh, Conservative,
was elected by a reduced majority, but
that does not indicate anything politically. W. B. Ives, his predecesior, was
a strong man personally and politically.
In Winnipeg, E. B. Martin, a brother of
Joseph Martin, is a Liberal, but belongs
to the independeat wing of it, and is
more apt to create trouble for Sir Wilfred Laurier than comfort him with his
support. In fact, it may be assumed
that if the latter had his choice, he
would sooner have seen a straight Conservative elected than a Martin  Liberal.
Jos. Martin's reception at Nanaimo
must have shown that gentlemen that
his popularity as a labor leader was
quite evanescent, and that his challenge
to Ralph Smith or Dr. McKeehnie to resign his seat and contest it with him, if
accepted would have hopelessly left him
in the lurch. Undoubtedly, hia experience would be the same in any other of
the constituencies he was willing to con-

THE   GREENWOOD   MINER
HOPE TO PRINCETON
A Delegation of Two Gone to
the Coast
From Similkameen, Asking for a
Wagon Road from Hope Landing
to Princeton,
James Anderson, of Princeton, and
A. E. Howse, of Princeton and Nicola,
are in the city. They are on their way
to Victoria as delegates from Princeton
and the Similkameen district to interview the Britiih Columbia government
with regard to the needs of the district.
They will present to the government a
petition signed by almost every male
resident of their district asking the government at Victoria to build a wagon
road from Hope Landing to Princeton.
The petitioners believe that as this road
will complete a system of good highways
from Hope right through the Kootenay
camps, it will be a great benefit to the
entire province, particularly to coast
merchants, who had learned many
things on their C. P. R. excursion to the
interior, and among other things the
great trade possibilities of the Kootenays.
The proposed wagon road is but thirty-
five miles long, and will wonderfully
facilitate traffic, a fact which can be demonstrated by a glance at the map.
Duriag their stay in the city Messrs.
Anderson and Howse have interviewed
many citizens, and this morning met a
committee from the board of trade comprised of many prominent merchants,
and laid their plans before them. The
committee assured Messrs, Anderson
and Howse that they would strongly recommend the board of trade to back up
their request to the government, that
they thought the road of vital importance to the province. The Princeton
delegates say that Spokane, hitherto the
mining headquarters oi the Kootenay
and Boundary, would be the headquarters no longer, and trade would be redi-
verted into its proper British Columbia
channels should the road be built.
Messrs. Anderson and Howse further
pointed out that if the boards of trade of
Victoria, Vancouver and New Westminster endorsed their petition to the
British Columbia government, that the
Kootenay people would naturally feel
very friendly, and would endeavor in
every way to swing their trade into the
coast wholesalers, hands. Should the
government grant the request of the petitioners, the C. P. N. company have
promised to quote special ratas for
freight at Hope, and a telephone system
will be arranged which will connect
Vancouver ami New Westminster with
Hope; Twenty-Mile Creek, where Rockefeller is working; Fairview, Krugers
and Camp McKinney, anil there be connected with the Columbia telephone
company's lines through the Kootenays
to Spokane.
Messrs Howse and Anderson stated
that if the route waB opened up as de-
scibed by the construction ot this 36
miles of highway, that a great many
mines all through that section would
double their output, and the trade of the
whole Kootenay country would be largely improved.
On Monday evening a special meeting
of the board of trade will be called to
consider the matter.���Vancouver Province.
Sox Wanted for Soldiers.
The ladies of British Columbia are
asking for contributions of sox for the
Canadian soldiers in Africa. One thousand pairs of sox are wanted by February
12tb and those sent from here must
leave the city for Vancouver not later
than February 8th. What are preferred
are hand knit soft undyed yarn, as
colors are dangerous in case of wounds.
Money to buy wool and have Ihem knit
will be gladly accepted. The Dominion
express company has offered to forward
them to Vancouver free of charge.

Bloodiest Battles of the Century.
In view of the alleged statement in
General Lord Methuen's message to the
Queen in reference to tlie battle of Modder river that "the battle was the bloodiest of the century," it may be interesting to recall some statistics concerning
grea^ battles of the century:

On Friday of last week H. W Kent,
general manager of the Vernon & Nelson Telephone Co., and C. B. Hopkins,
manager of the Inland Telephone Co.,
were in the city looking over tho situation here. It is understood that tlie
Vernon & Nelson Telephone Co. intend
extending their line to Camp McKinney, and to Bolster, where its system
will connect with that of tbe Inland
Telephone Co. Tbe latter intend to
build up from Republic to Chesaw and
Bolster, and extend their lines into the
Okanogan country, touching Loomia
and Oro and other points of importance.
It ii the purpose of the two companies,
each in its respective spere, to cover all
the available country in which mining
development is going on. Tbe Vernon
A Nelson propose, Mr. Kent says, to be
in the future as in the past in tlie lead
in British Columbia, and Brother Hopkins echoes "same here." Recently,
the Vernon & Nelson has secured the
Victoria system and is replacing the
present plant by a new and thoroughly
modern one. It is also proposed to connect Victoria and Vancouver by cable
across the gulf, one of the biggest long
distance telephone undertakings in the
world. It is also proposed tu connect
Naniamo and Victoria. The company
may therefore be said to be now supreme
on Inland and Mainland, and on sea as
well. Mr. Kent, tbe general superintendent, has been steadily with the Vernon & Nelson company practically since
the inception iu Vancouver in the early
days and has had charge of every euten-
sion and to a large extent directed its
policy since that time. lie is a thoroughly up to date telephone and business man, having been trained iu the
east with the parent, the Hull Telephone company. Messrs. Kent and
Hopkins went out on Saturday afternoon. _	
A DIRECT LINE.
Of Telephone and Telegraph from Greenwood to
the Coast.
.Through J. R. Brown, solicitor,Greenwood, notice is being given of the intention to apply for u charter for a company for the purpose of building anil
operating telephone and telegraph lines
in the province of British Columbia.
The usual powers required by such corporations are also to be asked for.
It is understood that tlie name of the
company, if charter is granted, is to be
the Western Telephone and Telegraph
company. The lirst work of that new
new corporation when authorized to do
business will be to build a telephone
line with a metallic circuit from the
boundary toVancouvar. The route will
probably be similar to that of the pres-
��� ent Canadian Pacific railway extension
survey; that iB, up the valley of the
Similkameen and reaching the main
line of the Canadian Pacific
railway at Spence's bridge, or Hope
and thence to the coast. Connection
would be made at boundary points with
existing lines.
It is understood that tlie parties applying represent the Columbia Telephone company of this city.
Defective Quarantine.
The action of the Government in appointing two non-medical men as quarantine inspectors on tlie railroads running acroBB the boundary to RosBland
and Nelson has been made the subject of
sharp criticism on the part of physi-
cinns in this city. They contend that
only physicians can render the service
satisfactorily, as it is desirable thai the
inspectors should be able to vaccinate
passengers in case of necessity, and to
distinguish the symptoms of smallpox
in any of its stages.���Rossland Record.

A French naturalist, quoted by Popular Science News asserts that, ''if the
world should become birdless, man
would not inhabit it after nine years'
time, in spite of all tbe sprays and poisons that could be manufactured for the
destruction of insects. The bugs and
slugs would simply eat up all the or-
cnards and crops in that time."
A Scotchman was asserting that all
the great poets were of his nation.
"Well, but," said one, "how about
Shakespeare? You can't say he vas a
Scotchman." To which the other replied: "His talents would justify the
supposition."
"Can you tell me what sort of weather we may expect next month?" wrote
a subscriber to the editor of a paper, and
the editor replied as follows: "It is
my belief that the weather next month
will be very much like your subscription." The inquirer wondered for an
hour what the editor was driving at,
when he happened to think of the wortl
"unsettled." He sent in the required
amount the next day.
For their services as executors of the
estate of George M. Pullman, Robert T.
Lincoln and Norman B. Ream will receive four hundred and twenty-live
thousand dollars, one of the largest fees
ever awarded in that country.
The Duke of Connaught, whose request to go to South Africa was refused
by his mother, the Queen, has been appointed commander-in-chief of the
forces in Ireland in place of Field-Marshal Lord Roberts, who is to command
the British forces in South Africa.
In describing Rudyard Kipling's recent effort at speech-making, the London Academy says: "When he showed
his face in the school room���it was
crowded���his Rottingdean neighbors
cheered him mightily, and he blushed
like a great kid. When he got upon the
platform to speak he was white as a
ghost. He had evidently learned his little speech by heart, and spun it out at a
terrilic rate. Of course that was nervousness. It struck me that he felt if
he were to hesitate he would would be
lost. The Dig Knghinders will never get
Kipling as a platform spotiter. He'd
collapse at the end of his third meeting."
Lawyer Joseph M. Dickson, of Dallas,
and    lawyer    Henry   M.   McDonald, of
Paris, Texas, closed up a peculiar transaction at Dallas, Texas, on January Oth,
A client of Mr. McDonald held a note
for seven hundred and fifty dollars
against a client of Mr. Dickson. Mr.
McDonald came to Dallas and gave the
note to Mr. Dickson for seven hundred
and fifty dollars. The note was given
in 18110, to secure payment for a negro
slave sold to the maker of the note.
The war between the States interrupted
the settlement of the business affairs
connected with the sale of the slave.
This is probably the last slave that will
be paid for in the State of Texas, if not
in the Union.
A member of one of the great London
political clubs once lost his umbrella,
and put up a notice in the hall request-
ins "the nobleman" who had taken it to
return it when he had done with it.
The committee, in due course, desired
to be informed why lie had ascribed its
possession to a peer. The member
blandly referred them to the rule, which
said that the club was composed of "noblemen and gentlemen," and added that
no gentlemen would have taken his umbrella.
A Russian once told Archbishop Benson that he saw in a police court in Russia a priest brought  in,  in undress of
purple, and the court, magistrates, and
all, knelt and a police sergeant kissed
his hand. Then, rising, the magistrate said: "You nasty, drunken
beast, so you were drunk again yesterday; I'll make you remember it this
time." The priest was led out to an
adjoining yard, his clothes torn off, and
fifty lashes given him; wnen he was
brought back half fainting all knelt
down and received his blessing.
Charles Lever, the Irish novelist, in
the days when he was British consul at
Trieste, accompanied his daughter to
London for a little social enjoyment, and
neglected to go through the formality of
asking for a leave of absence. On his
arrival in London he was invited to dinner by Lord Lytton. When he arrived
at Lord Lytton's house, his host said:
I'm so glad you've come! Vou will
meet your chief, Clarendon"���the minister of foreign affairs The novelist,
much embarrassed, began to give reasons why he must tear himself away, but
before he could make his escape, Lord
Clarendon was announced, and almost
at once espied him. "Ah, Mr. Lever,"
he said blandly, "1 didn't know you
were in England ; in fact I was not even
aware that you had asked for leave from
Trieste." "X-o, my lord," stammered
the novelist, disconcerted for a second,
but no more than that; "no, my lord;
I thought it would be more respectful to
your lordship for me to come and ask
for it in person I"

THE THEATRE QUESTION.
I
Editor Minkk :���The i|uestion has been
raised as to whether ornot.-i concert hall
or theatre in Greenwood, should
be conducted in the style of the Kaslo
Opera Gomique, or as a Music Hall, and
I think the Rev. Mr. Campbell is deserving of some credit for the stand he hits
taken in protesting against what is undoubtedly a wrong use of a public franchise. When the idea of a theatre was
first discussed, I was strongly in favor of
it as represented to nte. It was claimed
it would be first-class, anil that hy restricting the number to one it would
ensure its standard being maintained,
A music hall is just what we want,
where citizens can go and enjoy an evening's singing, or a good play after a
hard day's work. More especially is it
an attractive feature for miners, prospectors, and strangers. 1 do not. object
to tho sale of beer within the hall, or
smoking,  providing  these  liberties  are
restricted to that, and the performances
aru moderately clean ; but we have "influences" enough in the direction of
high life without creating more opportunities. I do hope that a strong effort
will be made to keep out the objectionable features complained of. If it cannot
be run as tt theatre, or music hall, as intended, and made to pay, then we are
just as well, and much better, off without it. Yours,
"Moderation."

EIGHT HOUR LAW.
A Largely Signed Petition in its Favor Forwarded front Greenwood.
A petition was forwarded to the Legislative Assembly, Victoria, on Tuesday
of this week, protesting against the repeal of the eight-hour law, It was
signed by about four hundred persons,
including    miners,   merchants,   hotel
keepers and others. The prayer ol the
petition was as follows:
"And whereas in Ihe opinion of your
petitioners eight hours an- sufficient for
miners to work underground mt account
as well as ol the artificial and bad air
breathed while working underground,
ihe dangerous nature ol Ihe calling, and
the fact that a slight mishap of a miner
working underground not only endangers his own life, but also the lives of
.many others, lis the fact that the work
is of such an arduous nature under Ihe
conditions it is performed, in that a man
would do as much and as good work iu
eight hours as he would in a shift of a
longer linn.-,
"We, therefore, your petitioners, de-
sir* to state that any such amendment
is objectionable, inasmuch as it would
tend greatly to increase the hardship of
tlie calling of a miner, and would not be
in the interest of the said portion of the
Community, or of the. country as a
whole."	
There have been some important
changes made in the officials of the C. I'.
R. H. E. BeaHley, Assistant Superintendent, Nelson, goes to Montreal to
take a position in the ollice of President
Shaughnessy, his late ollice being abolished. Capt Troup, Superintendent of
the Steamboat company, is to be made
Superintendent of the branch roads of
the company in the Kootenay, in addition to his present duties, ("apt. Gare,
of the steamer Rossland, will be port
Captain at Nelson, and John Hamilton,
for years agent at Nelson, will be Train
Master of all the branch lines in the
Kootenay, and D. 0. Lewis, resident
engineer. The many friends of Mr.
Beasley and Capt. Troup in this district
will be pleased to hear of their promotion, which is well earned.

Wherever Scotchmen are, and   where
hhey are not is difficult to say precisely,
tis anniversary is celebrated. Despite
the counter attractions of that evening,
tbe local clansmen got together in the
B. 0. Hotel anil spent the night in tbe
orthodox way, not omitting the haggis,
which was introduced with all befitting
honors, anil disposed of without a grimace.    It was out of no want of respect or
sympathy for the other events that the
goodly Dumber present met on Thursday
evening as they did, because an anniversary by no possibility could be postponed, with or without Bunts' consent.
The evening was spent most pleasantly,
so we are informed ami do verily believe,
ami as a result it has been decided to organize �� Scotch society.
The Miner, has every sympathy with
the formation of Ihe Mendelssohn Male
Chorus Club. Even the immortal musician himself would not b�� displeased to
know that, in this western mining town
his name hail been adopted by devotees
of hie art to give honorable title lo their
society. Their concert on Thursday
evening of last week in tbe Methodist
church, needless to say was detracted in
numbers by tbe numerous other entertainments, but at least a hundred were
present, and the program, the mimbere
on which are already familiar to mosl
readers from notices previously
printed, was well ami successfully exe-
cuteil. The promoters and managers
are moilest enough to say that it was fl
"crude" initial effort; but that Is to be
accepted with some reserve.    It ia not
in wisdom to praise without stinl ; but
it is due to say that it was most creditable to the club. A specially commendable feature was the harmony of the
chorus part, ami thai may be regarded
as the substratum ami keynote of future
success,   other performances will follow
it is hoped on evenings when  there  are
no counter attractions. In this connection it may be stated that Rev, Mr.
Campbell gave a short address on the
objects of the club,which, by the way,
were well set out on the backs of the
printed programmes The club wishes
to acknowledge with thanks a check of
$2") from I). A. Cameron, manager of the
Bank of Commerce, and one for $r, from
Walter Allan, of the .Mother Lode,
The concert on behalf of the .Mansion
Mouse fund was held in the Alhiirabru
theatre, as per announcement, mi Monday evening, and was rewarded with s
full house and returns which will aggregate Over $500,    There   were   no less
than twenty-four items on the programme, which was varied to suit all
tiiHtes.    Wilh lite space at  our disposal
it is impossible to.particularize, Special
reference is due to the parts takm by
Neville l.een, .1. IS, Hooper, W, iV
Howe, A. (,. Simpson, K, Lewin, C. VV.
H. Sansome and Mr. Strong, in song
and impersonation ou the part of thu
amateurs, and Alice Hamilton and Olla
do Lacy of the Alhambra' company,
The last named gave a most spirited
rendering oftho "Soldiers of tho Queen,"
which look the bouse by storm. Neville I.tes' " Absent Minded Beggar,"
was Ihe pivotal piece, and had a splendid reception, Evan Morgan did bo me
line work with the Indian clubs, and
Mr. Murray clogged, which with several
fisticuff bouts am I.'i wrestling match, Cornish style, completed a performance of
special interest.
