The following poetic effusion came
to r.» through the mail on Saturday
last. We* know not who the author is, but as it contains some
very good advice that might well
be heeded by mankind in general,
we cheerfully give it ipace:—
Let us speak of man as we find him
And censure along as w. see;
And should a man blame let us remind hin
That from faults there are none of
ns free.
If die evil from the heart could   be
And thc mind   could   be   read  ou
thc brow,
There   are many w* would pats  by
with scorn
That   we   ar*   loading  with   high
honors now.
Let us speak of a man as w* find him
And   not   heed what   others   mar
If he is frail, then a kind word   will
bind him
When coldness will turn him away.
Th* heart must b* barren indeed
Wherein no bud of repentance can
Let ns pause  e'r*  w*  cause it   to
E're a smile  or  a   frown   hangs it

News   Received on   Tuesday
Morning and Great Sorrow Expressed.
It would be difficult to express the feeling of deep regret
evidenced in Rossland on all sides when on Tuesday morning
the news of the death of Queen Victo.ia reached here. Although expected, telegrams having previously announced all
hope abandoned, the sting was none the less sever*.
Immediately upon the receipt of Ihe news Mayor Lalonde
called a special meeting of th* city council to take some action
on a general expression of sorrow. Alter a short talk by the
mayor stating the cause of the call, which was done ia a very
feeling manner, Mayor Lalonde and Aldermen Clute and Roll
were appointed a committee to draft aud send a cablegram.
After the meeting the following resolution wus sent:
Rosslaod, B C, January 22.—The Right Honorable Joseph
Chamberlain, Colonial Office, I .undo 1, England.: T>e citizens of Kossland have learned with deep sorrow of the death
of their beloved sovereign and beg that you will convty the
expressions of their sincere and heartfelt sympathy to the
Prince of XVales and the members of thi royal family.
C. O. Lai.omh, Mayor.
Tuesday evening, being th* night of regular meeling, the
council met and adjourned  out of respect for the departed.
The local branch of the Masonic order also adjourned their
meeling after passing a resolution of condolence, and the
Trades and Labor council did likewise.
During the day a number of business and private houses
were draped in mourning and bells were tolled at intervals of
a minute The public schools were closed and all possessed
of a flag hoisted il at half mast. Nowhere were the expressions of deep regret more noticeable or sincere than in Kossland. Expressions of sot row came from all, whether British
subjects or otherwise.
Arrangements for the funeral have been completed and interment will take place on February 2.

Because ihey do not hurry in

Sungree in Ainslee's Magizine

burg, Liverpool and New X'ork

shelving beach and fill up again
with Ihe rich products ot the island
and its mainland near by. This
much to the poignant envy of Emperor William whose own possessions
lie juat across the channel, the metropolis of which, Dar es Salaam,
is making every effort to deflect
thither the trade from Zanzibar
In no part of the world are Ger
many and England contesting so
bitterly for commercial supremacy as on this African east coast,
and the rivalry has now reached
such a point of intensity .is to be a
cause ol open rupture any moment
XX'ith the projection of railroads to
lb* interior and constant land
grabbing the two nations are running a neck and neck race, and
both, nol to be outdone by the
other, are sowing the earth with
golden coin, in the hope that it
will be returned ten fold as the land
is developed.
Germany, however, with her
east African steamship line, that
has now begun to circumnavigate
the dark continent, sailing from
Hamberg weekly, is in the lead
commercially, and the English
ministers, while wrestling with the
Transvaal problem, can not afford
to lose aught of that one which
codffoita them further noilh. In
less than a decade the wily and
subtle Teutons have subsidized
this g-cat steamship company, now
so prosperous that every year il is
enabled to build a new vessel oul
of Ihe dividends; they have
planted cloves, coffee and tea plantations and made them pay; have
exploited rubber companies, built
two railroads, us against England's
one, and have sent out hundreds of
I.l.ril. « sioi i.n.
Meanwhile America has not been
idle, having seized twe thirds of the
petroleum trade, one half of the
ivorv trade, and doubled her shipment' of cotton cloth, an item thai
furnishes one quarter of all the imports to Zanzibar. X'ankees are
landing every week, prospecting
for American firms of every description, and on the coast one
will find plenty of adventurers.
While at dinner at the European
hotel in Zanzibar Ihe evening before I left, a great, red bearded
person, with some blisters on his
lace and hands, sat down opposite
and a.Lul m\ in a subterranean
whisper, if I was not an American.
On replying affirmatively, he said,
in a hurst of confidence: "So'm

I got tbe greatest graft out here
you ever saw. Just landed about
$30,000 worth of teakwood about
30 miles below here, and if I can
get it away from the hippotots I'll
go back to ihe states in style."
He and his partner, he explained,
had floated the wood down the
river, and accidently ran into a hippopotamus family, whereupon both
had to swim for Iheir lives. Tbey
had come up from Zanzibar for
guns and ammunition to rescue
their property.
Tb. * in. 1 la »u  I'I a IT
As  iii other parts  of the   world,
one is humiliated to see  no  vessels
ing ships, and not American steamers, landed at Zanzibar. Fortunately, however, Ibis is no criterion
of our commerce. At present no
country can compete with us in the
so called piece good-, trade, though

ligiously each month to tbe home

should widen her market in this
pari of lhe globe with the exporting of hardware, building material,
Hour, provisions and all kinds of
cheap cloth. "American" shoes,
machinery and novelties are as popular on tbe east coast as bel.iw
Ibe Zambesi. The rubber indus-

Zanzibar is a free port for all imports except liiiuors, arms, ammunition, tobacco and rice. At all
coast ports lhe uniform duty is at
5 per cent ad volorem. Export
duties are the same, and the list
ncludes rubber, ivory, 'cloves,
hides, pepper, cocoanut, tea, coffee
and many tropical products These
exports last year Irom Zanzibar
amounted 10 $7,567,035. Of Ihe
imports, those of America fur one
month amounted to more than
ibe combined shipments of all Europe.

The following questions were
sent to Mr. Edward Markham, at
his home iu Brooklyn, who wrote
answers especially for theClvistian
Herald. The lines quoted in two
or three of the questions are trom
Mr. Markham's collected poems,
published by Doubleday, Page &
Co., entitled "The Man with the
Hoe and other Poems."

9. How can the government best
help the workingman?
As a first step, by assuming control ol railroads, telegraphs, elc,
and so moving wisely on toward
government ownership of all industries which in private hands have
become a menace lo Ihe public good
and public safely.
10. XX'hal should be done with
the idle millions? XX'iih tbe great
army of men who want work and
yet can find nothing to uo?
As first steps, they might well be
employed by cities und slates, at
living wages, upon public works.
11 enough work of that kind is not
forthcoming, let the public powers
establish shipyards and other industries sufficient to employ the willing
hands. Of course, if we had a more
effective organization of industry,
working time for the now idle
could be found by cutting down the
excessive hours al present forced
upon the ov;rworked. Keep cutting down the hours of a day's work
until everyone has work.

Conditions and episodes in trade
like the collapse of wool values
within the past year and its directly
underlying causes may be traced in
a very large measure to the general
uneasiness that exists in business
circles where capital receives only
feeble demand, and is in quest of

Col. lirey With His New Zealauders
Had a Signal Success Over
the liners.
A dispatch to the New Vork
Tribune from London says:
General Kitchener continues to
give favorable accounts of British
operations and his laconic reports
are summarized by the Paris correspondents.
Colonel Grey with his New /.calenders had a signal success over 800
Boers near X'entursburg, and Col-
ville's victory on X'laglaate road
has increased in importance as fresh
details are received. The Boers
are meeting serious losses, espe-
ciillv when Ihey take the offensive
and attack British positions and
They are not gaining any advantage north of the Orange river,
where thc British campaign has not
been intcrruped by the invasion of
Cape Colony.
The raiders have not made progress during the last fortnight and
the alarm has subsided at Cape
Town where the truth is perceived
that loyalty has been stimulated by
invasion and ihat the Cape Dutch
are now less favorable than they
tvere to the Boer cause.
Is is surmised in military circles
that General Dewet and General
Botha may unite their forces and
attempt to deliver a crushing blow
at some point on lhe line of communication between Johannesburg
and Ladysmilh. The Boers are
persistent and resourceful in carrying on guerrilla warfare under Ihe
most unfavorable conditions, but
the ultimate failure of their supply
of ammunition must bring the war
to an end.
The response of the Yeomanry
to a second call to arms continues
to be satisfactory. Recruiting is in
progress at many points and it is
evident that the number of volunteers asked fur can be easly obtained. The war office is censured in
many quarters for having recourse
to hall measures which will not produce much impression upon the
Boer leaders. Thc ministeis
seem mote anxious to save money
than to convince the Briers Ihat England is ii*.illi in earnest and resolved that the war shall end only in
one way.

SATURDAY, JAN. an.   uuu.
Queen Victoria is dead, the
grim reaper summoning her
al 6:55 p. m. on Tuesduy at
Cowes, Isle of XX right. All
England is in mourning, all
British subjects mourn, and
expressions ol deep regrel are
heard in all countries of the
globe. For more than 63
years Queen X'ictoriu has
reigned over her subjects, and
each year added lo iheir love
and reference for her. Her
long rule, the longest in modem history, her ascension to
thc throne taking place on
M..y -•-, 1837, was one of
Kne and fidelilv to her empire
and people. Always on the
side ol peace her efforts in thai
direction have ofllimes been
fell by oilier nations when
there was danger ol national
questions severing the bonds
ol friendship. Her judgment
and uisdon had much to do
will, the prosperity of the
British empire. Hers was
Ihc guiding hand at all
times and it was one upon
wliiib ll.e utmost reliance was
placed by all people. That
her death is deeply deplored
by all is evidenced bv many
expressions of regrel, but it is
among ber subjects Ihat her
death is most sincerely regretted. A noble women, loving
and true, she endeared herself
to all and history will never
contain I brighter page than

The commission appointed by the
congress of the United Slates some
twelve months ago to inquire into
the pooling methods employed by
the large railtoad interests of that
country, have made a report at last.
They find that all Ibe large railroad
companies have pooled Iheir interests for the purpose * 1 keeping up
rates. That for the past year no
tickets have been sold on connnis
sion throughout the country, and
(bat where a pool exists there has
been no cutting of rates. With
these -oads there is no competition,
the combination being complete.
The profits are increased and expenses lessened, and the man who
is compelled to travel is ihe one to
suffer. Il took the commission a
whole year to find these things oul,
anil it will probably be longer than
that before congress takes any action iu the mallei, if il ever does.
Between the railroad and Standard Oil magnates the United Stales
is certainly in bad hands, and the
quicker lhe masses awake to this
fact and demand Ihat these gigantic
corporations conduct their business
in a jusl and lawful manner the bet*
ter it will be for them.

The following from Ihe Silver-
Ionian is a filling rebuke lo the Sandon Paystreak for its uncalled-for
criticism of Mr. Chris. F'oley's appointment as a membe- of the Chinese commission:
The Sandon Payslrcak does not
approve ol Chris Foley's presence
on the Chinese commission, fearing
ihat he will be lost forever to the
Labor party when once he has
lasted government rations. The
Paystreak is unreasonable in this
matter. If Mr. Foley was a proper
man to represent his party in patlia-
inein. as the Paystreak was vehement in declaring, he is mosl certainly a lit person to represent them
on the commission, in whose work
the Labor party is vitally interested.
It he is a man so easily purchasable
as to be influenced by a job of a few-
weeks duration, as the Paystreak
implies, he was never a proper man
lo be supported as a parliamentary
candidate. But Chris Foley is certainly not that kind of a man.
His position on the commission
will enable bim to do more in thc
one matter of Chinese immigration
than his presence in parliament,
twenty limes over. The labor
leader bas thrown down neither his
parly nor his principles iu accepting
Ihe position vacated by Ralph
Smith, but has entered upon a work
which should have Ihe unqualified
approval of every man who voled
the Lab... ticket in the last election.
lie is a man who will see that Ihc
report of tbe commission is at least
no fake.
ll it also taking loo much for

Foley is conducive   to  the  opinion
of parliament that i.s   dangerous  to

In thia selection as it was in the appointment of Ed. Bramnar as Dominion labor commissioner. In his
official capacity Mr. Bremner has
done more for labor lhan any oflieer
of any labor organization could
ever hope to do, and he is in no
way deserving of sneers from the
Paystreak. To one not connected
with any organisation and outside
of their ranks it would appear that
laboring men,as a rule,are too ready
in accusing Iheir leaders of selling
out or throwing them down, lhe
minute an opening is made for them
to work in an official capacity.

The growing aentiment in favor
ol government ovvneiship appears
to have started Ihe usual gang oul
on a mad search for charters, and
under lhe railway trust throttle the
aspirations of th* people by securing
all the railway passes and under the
railway laws of lhe country load us
down with a national debt m as to
prevent the government undertaking
another system, thereby securing
11.ems-dyes in absolute possession
of the transportation facilities.
The key to the problem now is,
what is left of, lhe Coast to Koole-
nay railway. This in the bands of
the people of the west, wilh Ihe I.
C. R. in the cast, would serve as a
whip in the bands of tl.e people of
Canada to dictate fair and reasonable freight and passenger rales, or
produce lhe intervening link und
give us a government highway from
ocean to ocean.
It seems, however, that this is
nol to be. Wilh our provincial
premier in Ottawa, probably swapping the Natal act for a railway
bonus, and McKenzie Si Mann, with
the evident support of lhe Dominion
and provincial governments, lhe C.
P. R., G. N. and N. P., bearing all
lhe ear marks of the late Silton
Klondike steal and no certainty of a
second senate intervention, the people seem to be on the light end of
lhe "pull." When wc look back
over Ihe last 20 years and see the
history ot the ruinous system of
alienating the national highway and
the constant drain .... the public
treasury; the loss of the national
asset that today .1 ore lhan doubles

the fifteen million dollar dividend we
cannot get; the t\4enty*five million

tvhich is supplied hy a revenue pul-
.ly that turns over four dollars to

when we find that the very life of

lhe strength, bul upon the weakness uf its victims; that a protest
resulting in a change of government
only means a continuation of this
damnable system, and the last
stronghold (the Coast lo Kootenay

and tbat we must contribute lo-
warna the building thereof in opposition to our own will but with the

Rev. W. D. P. Itliss, the prime
mover in the organization of New
York's nonpartisan civic federation,
composed principally of working
men, says:
We expect to be able to organize
the efforts of labor so  that   it  shall
I be its own and society's savior.
Polic* reform cannot relorm New
I York City; Tammany cannot relorm
I New York;  a  bankers'   movement
cannot relorm the city.     The citi-
I zens must reform   themselves,   and
four-fifths ut   the citizens   are   lhe
working people.
Tht powe. ui' Tammany is that
1 Tammany believes i.i the people
Tammany believes in the prople mor
than the banker* do. Tammany
misleads the people, but rich reformers are not dear enough to the
people even to mislead them.
Therefore, If the people are to be
roused—and that is lhe only way
in which vice can be really reached
—lhe movement must springe, not
from a chamber of commerse, bul
from the home* and tbe breasts of
lhe working class.
Uul we do not expect labor to
act alone. Labor cannot. Working people work loo long hours and
are compelled too much to concentrate all their energies on getting
breud and butter tu be able wholly
to organise institutions. 'I here-
fore we make this movement—not
,1 labor movement alone, but a
movement of the laborer and the
man of progressive thought.
And wc do not propose lu antag
iinize bul rather co-operate wilh
other movements. The banker is
a citizen and a man as truly as the
laborer, lie has his place though
a dangerous one.
We have no criticism to make on
Ihe committee of fifteen. We would
help ihem. But a committee composed ol bankers, lawyers, railway
magnates, charily and philanthropic
agenls, clergymen and ethical leaders cannot conquer vice. It may
force Ihe police to drive the outwardly vicious from one district
10 another; it mav oust corrupt
politicians for a time, but that is all
it can do, and that is not enough.
We want|more than surface rc-
-pc. .ability: we need to reform the
home; the bad home is ihe cause
uf the bad women, and the cause
of the bad homes are high rent
and expensive transit. Wc need an
.•iiii-te.iriiiciii movement if we are
really going to have an anti-vice
crusade. 11 is Ihis lhal the working
people know, lor they have learned
it by bitter experience. Therefore
they will'tii't respond lo anything
1h.1l means less than this. It is
Irue it cannot be done in a day.
But we must begin, howevet slowly,
in this direction:
Our movement wants to fight
for lhe concentration of taxes on
land and to take them off good
dwellings (or the poor, and also upon lhe teduction of transit fares.
We want more baths, schools,
playgrounds, Men need a home
for the body, a chance for the mind,
and then only can wc conquer vice.
Wc believe that lhe best way lo
conquer evil is to bring in good.
Therefore, we are mainly working
for positive results in lhe name ot
the people and by the people, tncsl
of wli.nn are workingmen.

In view of the developments of
the London stock exchange a few
days ago, an article in the British
Columbia Review possesses timely
interest. There, unfortunately,
said ihe Review, seems every probability that Ihe Le Roi will become
a barometer for share manipulators
and obtain the unenviable notoriety
of Lake Views unless the share
holders take a very decided Stand.
It is neither in the interests ol the
shareholders themselves nor the
general public interested in Canadian mines that this great properly should become thc s[*brt of market riggers. The Le Roi is regarded hy the average investor as
thc representative mine of British
When such details as ore values,
capitalization and ore in sight, etc ,
are considered, there are many better mining investments in the
province today, but as far as
the 'general public isconcern-
ed, the reputation of British Columbia hangs on this property,
lis shares were up to $45 and
forced down to $30 within a shorl
period, merely to serve the purposes of certain market speculators.
During this period of fluctuation
the output of the mine is normal
and regular, but a buyer at, say
$40, being compelled lo realize .1
lew weeks after his purchase, finds
he lias lost a large slice of his
capital, not for want of judg ment
or an unforeseen accident, but
merely because the manipulators
wanl some more money from the
Tb* Review unhesitatingly stales
that such fluctuations would not
have taken place tvere thc London
management in different hands.
There are bodies ol directors who
regard mining as a legimate industry. Such a board would at once
dispose of any "bull" or "bear"
rumors by an official communication to thc press, if necessary, but
thc due publication ol all information immediately on receipt would
leave little scope lor market "rigging."
I-.. ..tn I' .11 ihr 1..   II.,.
l'he position of Ihc Le Roi today
is this: The company was registered in June, i8.jX,and the prospectus
was issued in December. During
the Iwo years which have elapsed
shareholders have received 5 per
cent on iheir money, and have seen
violent fluctuations, which has
caused ton many of them considerable   loss,   and   this   without   the
shadow' of reason. The mine has
for many months been earning
$100,000 profit. But the smelter
at Norlhport had a binding contract for a term of years wilh the
mine at a rate of 250 per cent
higher than present cost, nnd one
quarter ol the profit belonged lo another party.
The contract was not disclosed
in the prospectus, and has never
been mentioned by the company
Recently the Brilisn Columbia gov
ernmeni look action against thc
company for returning lalse and
misleading returns in endeavoring
to evade thc government tax rate ol
.•percent.   The shareholders, says
the Review, do nol wish their business conducted on such lines.
They have taken quite sufficient
risk in entering upon a legimate
mining    enterprise   wiihout    falling
foul oi a government which,  wiih
the Stroke ol lhe pen, CM cul them
off Irom their smelter (in au alien
territory) Hy^a promotive expotl

for uneasiness from which the
shareholders arc kept in blissful
ignorance, as Mr. Mackintosh re-
Cently lcfi London on short notice on

At the forthcoming meeting the
ihareholdera should insist on direct
statements from the board touching
theae   matters,    and,    in    addition,
hey should choose one  d Iheir own
nominees to represent ihem  in the
vacancy  caused by the death   ol
Lord Loch.     If they choose a   suit-
table person quite uncoiine. led with

chance that this policy   of mystery

as the Le Roi is concerned. J

LOSS ABOUT $3,000,000
Board of Trade Building, One of the
Fluent   in  the City,
A fire which started in the wholesale district of Montreal, at five
minutes past 8 o'clock Wednesday
night destroyed property valued at
betiveen $2,500,000 and $3,000,000.
Included in the property burned is
the splendid Board of 1 rade building which cost half a million dollars, with over ir.o tenants, half a
dozen large firms and two icore of
smaller concerns. The weather
was cold, but not partiruh'rly so,
and thc fireman were not greatly
hampered in this respect. Outside
of thc Board of Trade building there
was not a modern structure in
those burned.
The narrow streets, antiquated
buildings and the h-.'lammahle nature of stocks they contained, made
a combination before which the
firemen were powerless. The fire
practically burned until it came to
an open space, which gave the
firemen a fresh opportunity.
Immense crowds of people jammed the narrow streets, greatly
impeding the tvork of the firemen. The police could nol conlol
lhe crowds. Women fainted and
clothes were torn as those in the
front ranks, scenting danger from
falling walls, made a rush for safety-

the principal losses: Board ol

Xfe. Do let us call to our assistance
lhe wisest men in the commonwealth and ask them to report to
lus their views as to our public institutions. Let us have lresh air.
Why not?"
Rt, Rev. William M. Barker,
bishop of Olympla, is urging upon
the governor and the legislature a
plan of having boards ol visitors
appointed inr ihe state institutions.
•| have been convinced ol the
necessity for something like this
for a long time,'' said Bishop
Barker today. "The reasons lor the
plan proposed are somewhat as follows:
"At present the only information
we have of the affairs of any stale
institution is from the financial re-
po.ls ol tbe board of control or reports ol the various superintendents, 0( course these reports are
Optimistic; Ihey naturally tell all the
good things and ignore lhe 'shadows.'
"It would be most hopeful to
have an opinion as to any institution from an outside source, and
further, from men who have no
voice in iis management, and no
right of appointment to any ollice,
and no authority over ihe disbursement of a cent of money.
"The general government secures valuable information about
the military academy at XX'est
Point, and the naval academy at
Annapolis, by authorizing the president to appoint a board of visitors
for each institution. The most distinguished men in Ihe country are
glad to serve on these boards,
which spend a full week investigating and inspecting each institution.
"The members of the board receive no pay, but of course their
tni cling   expenses arepaid.
"A report is prepared by the
board and sent to the secretary of
war or the secretary of the navy,
and the recommendations of lhe
board find iheir way in lhe report
ofthe secretary to the president,
and appear in print in a government
document sent to every senator and
representative in congress. The
recommendations of these boards
form the basis of congressional appropriation.
"The government places the
greatest values on these reports,
and wisely so, for they are Ihe
Carefully considered advice of dis ,
linguished men as lo the method o
conducting these great schools.
These boards of visitors only give
advice. They do not control an

ernor every two years tn be sent to

"Pay DO salaries, but provide

would amount to about $1000 a
"Our best citizens wntld be
glad to serve the commonwealth
in this way. If the best men were
chosen these reports would form
the basis of appropriation by Ihe
legislature. If thc superintendent
ol in institution or the board of
control could nol convince such a
board of the wisdom of certain
changes, then it is fair to infer thai
the members of Ihe legislature
could nol be persuaded to make the
appropriation daslred.

upon the request ofthe secretary ol
the treasury, holds, first, that a
person born in the Hawaiian island iii 1895 of Chinese parents,
who are laborers, and taken lo
China wilh his mother in 1890, Js
entitled to re-enter the territory of
Hawaii, where his father still resides; second, that the wife and
children of a Chinese person who
tvas naturalized in 18117, in Hawaii,
and still resides there are entitled
lo enter that territory "by virtue of
the citizenship" of the husband and
father. This opinion is based upon
the assumption that lhe Chinese
persons in question, born and naturalized respectively in the Hawaiian islands, were in lact, citizens
of Hawaii under the laws and regit -

Leo English, jo years old, shot
Thomas Carson, his brother in law,
three times through the body, killing him instantly and incidet.lly
wounding William Carson, who
ivas in Thomas's company, on Saturday last. The affair took place
on the street and was the outcome
of ill treatment nl Mrs. Carson, English's sister.by her husband. Young
English bought a revolver several
days ago, stating that he feared
Carson would kill him. It is said
that Carson struck English with a
club before the shooting began.
The deceased had a club firmly
clasped in his hand when picked
up and with this weapon he is
supposed to have indicted the

The expectation   in   Washington | s gM .,luUed a|lJ ,nkes „le   metl||
is thai the British government wt
return Ihe amended Hay-Paunce-

own, and it is not expected that
these British aneiditliuts ivill be acceptable to the Uni ted States senate.
Whether or not this expectation is
based on advices from Mr. 1'Intuit*
or communications from Lord
Paunccfote il is not possible to determine.
In either case the communications
musl necessarily have been Informal
in advance of the action of the
British government Itself 00 the

frankly that they have no knowledge
ol the character ol these pi tillable
llritish amendments, so it is likely
thai Ihe opinion that Ihey will
be unacceptable to the senate is
based on nothing more than a general understanding as to the feeling

Tribute Paid to   His  Memory
By Eugene V. Debs
Because He Fought the  Battles of
Labor--DeHorted By Those
He Served.
It w-asin th.> \cta 188.1 that Martin Irons, as the chaitman of the
executive board of the Knights ol
Labor of the Could Southeastern
Railway system, defied capitalist
tyranny, and from that hour he
was doomed. All the capitalism
combined to crush him, and when
at last he succumbed to overwhelming odds he was hounded from
place lo place until he was ragged
and footsore and the pange of hunger gnttved al his vitals.
For 14 long years he fought
single handed the battle of persecution, ll-- tramped far, and
among strangers, under an assumed name, sought to earn
enough to get bread. But he
was tracked like a beast and
driven from shelter. For this
"poor tvanderer of a stormy day"
there was no pity. He had stood
between his class and their up*
pressors; he was brave and woti'd
not flinch; he was honest and would
nol sell. Thia was his crime and
he must die.
Martin Irons came to this country Irom Scotland a child, llc was
friendless, penniless, alone. At an
early age he became a machinist.
For years he worked fat'.his trade.
He had a clear head and a warm
heart, lie saw and felt the injus-
ice suffered by his class. Thr ee
reductions in rapid succession fired
his blood. He resolved to resist.
He appealed to his fellow workers.
When the great strike came, Martin Irons was its central figure.
The men knew they could trust
him.    They were nol mistaken.
When at the darkest hour Jay-
Gould sent word to Martin Irons
thai he wished 10 see him, the answer came, ''I am in Kansas City."
Gould did not have gold enough to
buy lions. This was his greatest
crime. The press united in fiercest
denunciation.      Kvery  lie thai ma-
the working class. The kind of
service he rendered was too honest and respectable, too human to be
The blow he struck for his class
will preserve his memory. In the.
great struggle for emancipation he
nobly did his share, and the history
of labor cannot be written without
his name.
lie was an agitator and as such
shared the] common fate of all
Jesus Christ, Joan of Arc, Elijah
l.ovejoy, John Brown, Albert Parsons and many others set the same
example and paid the same penalty.
For the reason that he was a
despised agitator and shunned of
men too mean and sordid to conceive the lofty motive that inspired
him will be remembered with tenderness and love long after the last
of his persecutors shall have inul
dered in a forgotten grave.
It wai Iu Af ril, 1809, in Waco,
Tex., that I last fpressed this comrade's hand. He bore the traces of
poverty and broken health, but his
spirit was intrepid as when he
struck lhe shield of Hoxie 13 years
before, and when he spoke of
socialism he seemed transformed,
and all lhe smouldering fires within
him H.i.eil once more from his
-i.itikrn eyes. ,
I wus pained but not surprised
when I read that he had "died
penniless in an obscure Texas
town." It is his glory and society's
shame that he died that way.
His weary body has found rest,
and the grandchildren ol the men
and women he struggled, suffered
and died for will weave chaplels
where he sleeps.
His epitaph might read. "For
standing bravely in defense of thc
working class he was put to death
by slow torture."
Martin Irons was an honest,
courageous, manly mat.. The
wot Id numbers one less since he
has left it.

Years ago, when I first read Tolstoi's idea of an "industrial form of
government," I have been imbued
with Ihe "idea" that Socialism was
the factor that would destroy human and intellectual slavery, and
establish humanity and intellectual

Changes now under way on the
interior ol the Kossland opera
house will, when completed, be
hailed with delight by patrons of
that amusemenl resort.
The front ol the . building
has been remodeled entire
ly, The main entrance will be
from ihe centre of the front as
heretofore, but there are stair-
leading on each side to Ihe "pit,"
or the ground lloor. At lhe foot of
these stairs is a fair sized hall, ofl
from which [arc two coat rooms,
one lor ladies and lhe other for
gentlemen. That for ladies will be
plastered and a stove will be furnished when the weather requires it.
Here alio will be a ticket ollice to
assist in the sale when there is a
itish. This portion of the building
was formerly used for the storing
of wood and rubbish. Another change
al Ihis point is the placing ol an
exit in thc shape of large double
doors which will lead to the street
above by means of stairs.
There will in future be a balcony.
This will face lhe stage and has
been taken from what was formerly
the hack end of the gallery. 'This
portion has been enlarged, so as lo
seat iu the neighborhood of 250
people. The side galleries will
remain a heretofore, except Ihat tht
buxes will be removed und en-
ti u ii*. direct from Ihe outside will
be provided. These may also be
reached by going through the main
entrance. The entire interior lias
been covered with ceiling lumber,
adding much lo the warmth and
beauty of lhe place.
The stage is also about lo receive ullc.ition and much new
scenery, will be added, for which

and    went   down 80  feet    through
a chute to the No. 3 tunnel.
Kennedy had been employed at
the Ruth for about tivo months. He
had been running a car in the No. |
2 for two weeks and was well ac- |
quainled with the ground, Thel
slope into which he fell was some 1
distance Irom the track and it is
presumed he was going to get
some tobacco from some fellow-
workmen employed a little distance
away, but unfortunately went without a candle and in the dark stum*
bled into the chute with fatal results.
When he was laken out of the
chute of the No. 3 tunnel life was
almost extinct and a brief examination proved that his neck had been
broeen by tbe fall,
Kennedy was from Pipestone,
Manitoba, and had only been in the
camp about three months. Ile
has no relatives iu the Slocan.
His friends in Manitoba have been
telegraphed particulars.

An inventivr g'nius at Colfax,
Washington, has invented a machine drill thai is said lo do as
much work as eight men. Thc
machine is operated by one man,
who simply I urns a crank, which
revolves a wheel (o which is attached four 4-pound hammers, which
strike the drill with terrific force,
each blow being harder lhan Ibal
struck by a man. By turning the
ciank at a moderate rale, 216
blows are struck by the hammers
in one minute. This is said to be
