JEFFRIES
The Champion Successfully
Defends Title Against
Gorbett.
The Ex-Ghampion is Knocked
Out In Twenty-Third
Round.
The Most Spirited   Contest
That Has Occurred
ln Years.
Seaside Athletic Club, Coney Island,
May 11���Jim Jeffries is still the
heavyweight champion of tho world,
He put out Jim Corbett in the 2llrd
round of their Infill with a decisive
knock-out blow. The finishing blow
came as a sudden and startling surprise. Corbett hnd been making n
wonderful battle. His defence was
absolutely perfect and while he wns
lacking in strength he had more than
held his own, und stood an excellent
chance of winning the tight bad il.
gone the limit. He hud not been badly punishod aud bad managed lo mark
his man very s verely. The winning
punch waa a short left arm punch to
the jaw. Corbett dropped like a log
Jeffries showed ability to taken punching, go any distauce and punch bard'
He was clearly out-boxed and, at times,
made to look like a novice. The crowd,
which numbered fully 8.000, was a Cor
bett orowd and his defeat fell upon a
silent multitude, There were cheers
for him when he revived and left the
ring and he was generally treated with
111011- consideration than the victor.
Corbett Is atlU a factor in tlio pugilistic game. He has renewed much ot
his old form. The buttle was e'enn
and it is doubtful if there was a single
infraction of the rules. Tho crowd was
most orderly,
After the fight Referee Charles
White said "There was never a Bquarer
or fairer contest. Hoth men fought
fairly and lived up lo tbe rules, The
winner had an up hill tight all (he way
and the Inter deserves all the praise
Showered upon him. His footwork
was perfect and lie is to he cimgrut u
lated on his return to his old time
form. From his ahowl ng tonight Corbett has inii.li' than a look-iu wilh the
best of I lie!o.
Jeffries was very reticient when seen
nfter the contest. He said "Corbett
gave me tbe best light of my career
aud was really �� surprise. I thought
I wonld have whipped him Bconer nnd
I think I shonld have, hnd my left
arm not given out enrly in the fight.
The result I st no time folt doubtful
of, for I knew I wonld eventually land
the blow that I bad boen looking for
all along. Corbett wns really a revelation to mo, and I did not look for
snob a battle from him. Jim mnde a
game tight nnd I have no wish to do-
traot in the least from his credit, hue
I am "till the champion nnd will go at
it all along the line till I try all ol
them."

meeting several old residents of Vancouver, among others Mr. .Tallies Mc-
Phoe, an electrician, who by the way,
is a supporter of the Mayor for Provincial honors, I sought information
regarding many matters from him
and while conversing, who should
collie along hut Mayor Houston. I
was duly Introduced as the City Clerk
of Vancouver. He looked at me in a
very cold milliner anil said ''I have no
use for the people of Vancouver, you
arc all hogs down there. You will
find little friendship shown to you in
thia oity,11 I tiksed for an explunu-
nation of bis antipathy towards my
oity but got none but a few mumbling
remarks as he passed away, which 1
gathered to mean that be was displeased with the conduct of our members in the House.
1 intended to call upon him Officially before leaving the city but the
above experience did not encourage
me to do so. I may state in conclusion that I am not a politician and
have no desire to injure Mr. Houston
in the present campaign, I write
only in fairness to Vancouver, whose
citizens have always entertained the
kindliest feeling for your city and invariably receive with courtesy your
citizens and civic officials when they
visit the coast.
I bave been told since tbat tbis was
Mr, Houston's "way" nnd that he did
not Intend to menu offence but bis

EVIL IN   SEPARATION.
Why nhoold Labor Heparato itself
from other daman, and foroe itHelf forward an entitled to n distinction of
its own? It Hikes all classes to make
a community, and tho interest of tho
community in common. There is uo
enemy to Labor in BritiN!i Columbia.
No one is seekiiiK to enslave it or injure it. What is good for Capital ie
good for it i what beuolitn tho ono hon-
nllis both. The conditions of Labor
may reqniro speoial legislation. So do
the conditions of evnry other class of
people. Tho mercantile interests may
require something to remove an obstacle or to facilitate expansion or to protect it ugoinst evil, bnt the mercantile
class does not for that resaon separate
itself from all others and conceive itself nt war wilh thorn. There are
agricultural interests, lishory interests,
manufacturing interests, each requiring attentjcni peculiar tc themselves;
bnt they do not set themselves np as
distinct from the rest of tho population, and demand tbat thore shall bo n
division of political conditions in
wbich they shall be reoogniBed as a
separate people, with nothing in common between tbeir affairs and tbe
affairs of tbe Province generally. Neither do they demand that tho general
affairs of the Provinno shall bo made
snbordinate to theirs. Thoy stay with
eaoh other and all others, confident
tbat they will obtain what they require or demand, for tho good reasou
tbat wbat is best for thern is best for
-all.
The Labor class would do this, too,
if it were not that its organisation
renders it peculiarly susceptible to tho
mauhiiiiilioiiH of mon who design to
'use It for purposes of their own. We
"are unhappily too consoious of the fact
that one might as well preanh to the
winds as try to inculcate this truth
ln tbo present temper of the people.
It may be, however, that in the ranks
there is one bore and there free enough
from the exalt ment of the day to
listen to reason. We are persnadod
Labor is making n great mistako in
setting itself up as a distinct and separate class of the oommunity, with in
terests different from and incompatible
with those of the general publio. If
tboy persist in arraying themselves
against others, thoy must oxpoot that
in time all others will be nrrayed
against tbem, as n matter of solf-
defenoe and self-protection. It will be
better if we oonsidor onrselros nil ono
community, with oommon hopes, common aims, and common interests. Lnbor is too valuable to bo ill-treated, or
negleoted, so there cnn bo no danger of
injustice. We nil have our little grievances at times ; eomo now then may
have thoir big grievances; but little or
big, we need never despair of redress
if we work together for the highest
publio goooV	
nddrnsBos that havo appeared. It is
free from all that wrotchod claptrap
wbich is being used in so niiinj of
(hem to catch votes, stuff cunningly
invented to deceive tho unwary and
Impose upon tho ignorant. Mr. Keen
evidently has too much respeot for tho
electors of thu Slnoan to descend to
such methods, and from all wo can
gather it oan be said also thnt he is
under no nooossity to employ them, as
votes enough to oleot him will be freely tendered without.
It is a pity the Premior of tho Province and his shallow imitators do not
borrow Mr. Keen's polioy on the qnestion of Oriental immigration. He be
lievos the influx of Ohinese and Japanese to be a menace to tbo future welfare of tha Province. Iu this ho is
certainly right, if that influx is to
continue nt the rate that has so alarmed us during the pust few months; and
should be hold the opinion that we are
botter without any of thorn he has
many to agree with him. But ho does
not throw doflaneo to the Federal and
Imperial authorities. He does not assume a tremendous passion, and with
bis arms waving wildly doolare that
this immigration must stop or the peoplo of British Columbia will know the
reason why. He does not threaten violence ; battle, murder, and sudden
death is not bis oreed. He is a Business Mon's candidate, and he approaches the question in a business
mauuer. If we are to keop within
the four corners of the constitution, he
recognises thnt the qnestion cnn be
dealt with only through the Dominion
and Imperial Uovutnments. He does
not say with Mr.Martin that he wonld
legislate here and keep on legislating,
withont the slightest regard for the
wishes of the Imperial nnthoritios,
knowing thnt his legislation would he
of no effect and could only crente
trouble and embarrassment. His
method is that of a bnsiness man and
a loyal subject. He believes "this matter should have the immediato attention of the new Honse and steps taken
to obtain Dominion legislation with
tne assistance of the Imperial nnthoritios, whose united efforts wonld he tbe
consolidation of the British Empire
for the benefit of British subjects."
There is something sane in a policy
of that kind, and the mnn behind it is
entitled tu the support of sane eleotors.
Mr. Houston bns made a good start
in introdnoiug into this British town
of Nelson the most oorrupt feature of
the American electoral system. Tbe
primaries are as alien to all onr institutions as it is possible to imagine.
We do not require them in Oanada;
thoy are neither necessary nor suitable.
Thoy are so oontiary to tbe true British spirit the majority of us desire to
cultivnto and preserve that they are
offensive. We want to keop Nelson a
British town. Wo want no foreign
plants of such evil growth as a pri-
mury, and in all Oanada tbere is no
such thing as tbat other Americanism
wbich Mr. Houston's paper introduces,
the preoinot. If the gentleman is so
enamored of American institutions let
him return to that country; they will
not be tolerated in Nelsou, once their
nature is understood.
Kaslo is happy in having level-beaded men and a level-headed newspaper.
As proof of the latter wo quote from
The Kootenaian: "The Provinioal
Party are trying hard to make the
people on tbe Coast believe that Martin borrowed a lot of his platform
planks from thom. If this is trne Joe
is to bo pitied. If tho Provincial Party
vere returned to power it would be a
case of ont of the frying pan into the
fire. Of the two parties give ns Joe's.
The Provincial Party olaim that their
policy is one of oommon sense Knslo
bas been Buffering Irom that common
sense for the past year." So has Nelson.
