Ninth Year
Institute Organized and Officers Elected.
The Aims and Objects of the Society-
Necessary Qualifications of a
Good Teacher-
The Kootenay Teacher s Iiinl.il i;to
held its inaugural meeting yesterday.
The society was organized, offloers
elected, and the now institution fairly
launched on its path of usefulness.
Mr, W. Burns, Provincial School In
spector, and President of the Society,
took tho cha.r, some twenty touchers
being present.
Tho proceedings opened with an introductory address from the President,
who explained the aims and objects
of the Society, and its sphere of usefulness, At tho conclusion of bis ro-
murks the organization of the Institute
was proceeded with.
It was decided that there should be
throe classes of members in the Institute (l) extraordinary (8) honorary
and (8) aotivo members. Bxtraordl
nary members are those without sp-c-
ial qualifications, and who must ho
elected by a two-thirds majority. Honorary members must, be ex-teachers,
and urn admitted on showing their certificates and paying the ordinary feo.
This class of members have iiil privileges! except, that, of voting. The
qualification for an active member
consists in being a teacher iu Cook'-
nay. The hope was expressed that
uny resident Ol Nelson WOO can qualify as "honorary"' nienibers, aud who
desire to join the Institute, will present themselves at today's sitting,
either morning or afternoon, for enrollment, After those present had
entered their names on the roll of I he
Institute the election of offloers was
proceeded with, the following ladies
and gentlemen being chosen :
President���W. Hums, Esq., 15. A.
Nelson, Vice-President, W. A. Blair,
Esq,, Rossland; Uncording Secretary, Miss Nmile, Riisslnnd; Corn .
���ponding Secretary and Treasurer,
Miss Hunting. Trail.
A committee of three was also
elected consisting of Messrs J. His-
lop and R. K. Estorbrook, and Miss
The mreiing resolved Unit the next
annual meeting of the Institute should
be held iu Rosshiiul.
Miss Kittle, now not on the permanent Staff, lint for some years a
teacher in this Province, opened the
afternoon session by giving a short
talk on the work done at Battle Greek
Sanitarium, Battle Greek,    Mich,, one
of the leading Institutions of the kind
in America, she also spoke of the in
estimable value to workers of good
health. Mr. Hums then introduced
the practical work of the session with
a paper entitled "Oitr Work" He
spoke of the reason why the F, K. S,
of England continue! to be the highest degree   iu   tho world,   anil argneil
therefrom that the teacher's profession should he eonl iiiually raised iu
excellence, so that it may ever occupy
Its present position at, Ihe head.
He then referred lo the loo ciiniiniili
Opinion that a toucher rei|iiires hut little qualification, and that his work is
very easy, going on In hIiow the fallacy of these floWl, and how poorly
the really arduous labors of the prn>
tension me remnuerated.
Another essential qualification   of
the successful teacher was psychological knowledge. Not, a knowledge of
psychology derived from such ennlile
works uh Ilninillini or Mcliellan���Iheso
arc books t,i be crammed for an examination���what is required is a knowledge developed by Hie teacher himself
by nhHorvitlinu of the individual
ciilliiren, by walching Ihe results following certain methods, ami by noticing how these are varied by Ihe phys
leal environment, The teacher must
not forget Unit he is dealing with immature minds, and should try lo I line,
himself down to such a level as lo be
perfectly intelligible to Ihe pupil, and
ut the same lime to be sympatheiic to
Teachers frequently complained or
the monotony of the work. The
Speaker pointed cut that, this need
not iieceHsarilv be so. A good teacher
would bring iu a Utile nature oc.ou-
sloiinlly, introduce bright lileralin-e,
mid Vary Ihe routine of the day.
One gteat trouble in the profession
at present is the presence of so many
teachers, and, worse still of so many
strangers. This is one 081116 of the
Small salaries, hut if leacheis were
to spend Ihe same lime in qualifying
themselves uh da doctors and lawyers,
thoy would be better paid. Money
���pent 011 education is simply so nun h
capital Invested, and a teacher can
only etpeot his salary to be in  pinpor-
Hun in that, Investment,
"The best toacbiir is he who dtus
least" may sound like a paradox but
it is not.   Teachers have been   known
who covered the board from end to
end, while the class slumbered. Tho
true principle is for the children to
do the work with the teacher acting
as director of ceremouies. The Duke I
of Wellington said he never did a
thing he could net someone else to'
do, and ninny of the most successful
teachers of Ontario have gotten the
name of being lazy, till it was shown j
they were well Illustrating the truth
of that saying. Teachers, however,
should be guided by oircurastances,
No rule can be always followed, for,
while it is true that "a rolling stone
gathers no moss," it is equally true
that "A tethered cow (loos not get
fnt." Attention should also lie paid to
the physical conditions of the work.
Children will not work well iu too
hot, too cold, or vory uncomfortable
The next point is one of the utmost
importance to the school. What stand
should he taken on the moral qnes
tion? Direct religious teaching is forbidden in this Province, but many
moral questions touch closely upon religion. If teachers inciileato the high.
"St morality, they will keep within
tho law, and yet their teaching will
touch closely on religion. Mr. Burns
condemned the antiquated methods of
teaching, such as cramming the pupil's he ids with lists "of irregular
verbs and prepositions, and dwelt on
the fact that wnile the memory should
not be forgotten, it is of the greatest
importance that the reasoning faculties should be developed.
The speaker closed an interesting
address by laying stress on the responsibility that rested on the teacher. A
child is un imitator, and, if the
teacher b- good, the children will be
proportionately benefited.
At this juncture there was a pleasing interlude to the more serious work
of the session whir, a violin solo was
given by Mattie McOandlish, and 11 re
citation by Helen Macdouald. These
were very well given and received and
all the more Bppreoietcd as thoy were
given by little girls.
Mr. .lames Hislop, principal of the
Kaslo school, next gave a very interesting paper entitled, "Where we live���a
study and a parable." Mr. Hislop
is a gentleman who has traveled a great
deal over the world, and his ref irences
ti places aud things be had seen wore
fall of interest.
The next thing on the programme
was a paper by Miss M. 1). Skinner,
entitled "Primary Heading." The
h.-ur however, was so far ndvalicoi!
that it was decided to postpone the
;- per. Mis.; Bkinrver will according!j
open this morning's session.
Among those presciii yesterday were
W. Burns, Inspector, Kaslo j J, Hislop,

War Department Has Not   Yd  Heard
From Cen. Otis.
Washington, Jan. 2.��� Nothing
more has been heard at the War Department from General Otis at Manila. The situation is irritating in the
fact that, according to the experience
of the last few days, it. is not to be expected that any thing more can be
heard from Iloilo for a day or two
at least except in the very improbable
event that the American force has
been repulsed in their efforts to make
a landing, and has been obliged to
return straight to Manila. It is surmised from the reports that Gen.
Miller is proceeding with morn tact
and with less roughness in his dealings
with the insurgents than appeared
from the first impression of tho reports. His purpose apparently was
.to avoid such a formal recognition of

are hoping there will be no actual
hostilities between the forces arrayed
against (inn. Otis and his own. but
that at tlie worst, the former will retire from the city without accepting
or rejecting the American overture:,
until they have beard from Agninaluo.

tained should he defeated hecanse of
this prostitution of Ministerial position and lufluenoe, The course taken
by those papers may have been the
only proper one; at auy rate, we are
not quarrelling it. But it will he quite
in order to point out to them that Mr.
Ogilvie, Administrator of the Yukon
and nn immense favorite of the two
journals named, has exposed him ���
self to the same sort of critioism as
that employed with such disastrous
effect against the Turner Government.
In a prospeous recently published in
Loudon, that of the "British Canadian
Gnldflelds of the Klondike, Limited,"
ho is said to have furnished tho promoters with a private map on which
he has marked a number of places not
yet taken up and which he knows to
be rioh, advising that "claims upon
them he staked for the Compnny as
soon as possible. " The Company de-
olare in tlie prospectus that thty propose an "exploration party shall be
diapatohed to certain districts with regard to which Mr. Ogilvie has given
to the founders exclusive information,
and to there secure possession of the
most desirable properties already indicated by him."'      -
There is much more of it, but this
will do. Now, if Mr. Turner and Mr.
Pooloy were wrong, what shall be said
of Mr. Ogilvie? Considering all the
circumstances of his position, his connection with this enterprise must be
held to be more scandalous than that
of the two Ministers Do the papers
mentioned think this, or   is the crime

aries. Two of them, however, have
arrived at a conclusion. A week ago
or more The Daily Columbian of New
Westminster put this query: "At
midnight, December 81st next, how-
many years will have been completed
since the birth of Christ���the event
which is assumed to be the starting
point, the zero, of the Christian era?"
To which the Colonist Victoria, answers; "1889 years, eighteen centuries
und ninety-nine years. One more year
will be necessary to make nineteen
centuries." This is entirely satisfactory to Tho Columbian,and it proceeds
at once to joyously welcome The Colonist  as a convert.
It would lie interesting to know the
Victoria paper's method of computation. Wo shall not be surprised if it
transpires that it was calculating
from the December of the prosont year
instead of that of the last, the nearness of tho just passed New Year's
causing the confusion. But as quoted,
there is no doubt both are wrong. Aud
it oarf.be said, further that, in the only
sense material to the point at issue,
the birth of Christ has nothing to do
with the question. Tho exact date of
that event may have been several days,
or months, or years, before or after
the 1st of January of the year Ono
of the Christian era. Tho chronological lecord was not exact in those days.
And the Christian era was the invention of a monk, Diouysius Exigous,
���omewbere about the year A. D. 58S,
It is this Christian era we havo to
consider, not the precise date of the
birth of Christ, which gave rise to it.
There was a first year to it, which
was the year One, and it began on the
1st January. It ended on the 81st of
December following, whon the first
year was contploted���not necessarily
the first year after the birth of Christ,
which need not he considered, but
the first year of the Christian era
which was invented by that monk several hundred yearn afterwards and
which all Christian countries have
since adopted, Immediately after midnight of that first Hist of December
the second year began, knnwn as the
yuar Two; and Ihe days and years con
tinned tO roll by until the first century
wbh completed, on the 81st December,
100. The second century, therefore,
began on 1st. January, llll, and the
Twentieth  century  will begin on the
1st January, 1901, No amount or
kind of discussion caii overcome IhiH
very simple < alciilalioii.
The Columbian has probably heard of
Ireland, and of its   Legislative   Union
with Great Britain.   We have not the
Act of   Union   before   us, and   do not
know if it speaks of centuries; but it
is well known thai the Union was lo
take effect, at tin beginning of tho
century next after the passing of tho
Act, and it accordingly look effect on
the 1st January, 1801, Here is olllcial confirmation of Urn foregoing calculation, and whenever or wherever
nooeisary there will be further olllcial
confirmation two years lumen. Perhaps
by that time our Coast couteinporarii s
will have a liullwr understanding of
what they are talking about.

only in the political opponent? We
take tlm facts of this case from The
New York Engineering and Mining
Journal, which has an article on the
subject, the last paragraph of which
it is well worth while to quote: "We
herewith inform investors thai no wild
pointer (this has special reference to
a statement by Mr. Ogilvie, that he
knows of his personal knowledge there
are ��20,000,000 worth of gold iu sight
in the Yukou placers)���that no wild
pointer like this is a safe basis for a
company with a capital of ��275,000,
nor one hundredth of that amount. We
also call the attention of the Canadian
Government to the impropriety of this
exploitation of Mr. Ogilvie. and the
amazing statement in the prospectus
that Mr. Ogilvie has given to the o-jni-
pany valuable information by permission of his Government, and has
agreed to advise and assist tho company generally, with the solo stipulation that   the   undertaking  shall be
I n
conducted   in    accordance     with   the
views of the Canadian Government.
If tlie Canadian Government .is to favor private interests iu this manner,
we wonder what the miners of the
Klondike will have, lo say about it.
And if the Ottlcial Administrator of
the Government, is to exploit his official position in such a way, it is not
difficult to foresee the fine orop of
scandals which will come out of it,
and indirectly on the Government that
permits it." Altogether it has a very
bad appearance. It will be interesting
to know what The Daily Times aud
Tho Province will have to say of it.

Duiiy Columbian,

It Was a Hard aud la t Game aud Pleased Several Hundred
The hockey match ysterday resulted
iu  a victory for the Rossland team by
four to   one.    Although   defeated   the
Nelson club has no reason to feel   disappointed    with aits   showing   as  it
was hardly to   be   expected   that  tho
team could go on the ice with no practice whatever and defeat  tho Jtossluud
players   who  have   had ice  for  some
weeks   past. But   they did what  they
promised   to do, viz. put up  a strong
and fast game that   made the match a
decidedly rapid aud excitiug oue.   The
attendance   was largo,   the   fact   that
there was ample accommodation in the
new riuk for a big   crowd,   eucourag-
iug several huudred spectators   to turn
out.    The   sheet  of   ice is a large one
and   is   surrounded    by    walls  high
enough to keep the puck in bounds and
provide   against   anything  disastrous
resulting from body  chicking.. When
the ice becomes better and the lighting
facilities  are improved tho hockeyists
will be very well provided for.
The Rosslaud team showed the effects
of practice and they had the advau-
tage of weight on their side. Their
team play at times was good and all
their games were scored from combined rushes ou the Nelson goal. Iu
- tefttt piny SsUon """ poor and it is
to this department that the men will
have to pay particular attention in
practice. They have the spofcd aud
strength uud wheu the proper finishes
are put ou their work the team will be
able to put up a muoh better game
than yesterday's. They were slow iu
following up���except, of course those
who lingered offside���aud the sight of
one man in the enemy's quarters with
out any support was a oommou one.
For the Nelson team the men, individually did well Roll, i" goal, distinguished himself by many brilliant
stops. Tho defense work of Black-
Wood and W, Duncan was first cI-ibs,
the latter being a particularly vuluahlo
mau at cover point. Wettnore, on tlie
forward li��e, who made his first up-
pearauco with the team, played a
Bpleudid game and was responsible for
the ouly game that Nelson scored.

The game opened briskly and neither
side had auy distinct advantage at any
time during the first half. Brilliant individual runs and decidedly close
shaves on both goals kept the spectators in a constant stato of oxcitemout.
After fourteen minutes play a combined Rosslnud rush gave the puck to
Chesterton and ho was quick to avail
himself of an opportunity to score.

"It takes money to run a newspaper."
What an exaggeration; what a
whopper. It has been disproved u
thousand times; it is a clear ease of
airy fancy. It doesn't take money to
run a newspaper. It can run without
money. It is uot a business venture.
It is "a charitable institution, a begging concern, a highway robbery. II.
Godfoiy, a newspaper is a child of the
air, creature of a dream. It can go on
and on and on, when any other
concern would be in the hands of a receiver, and wound up with oob webs
