REV. WRIGHT TO BE CALLED.
Selected   as   Pastor  oi    the   Nelson
Presbyterian Church.
A meeting of the congregation of
St. Paul's Presbyterian church was
held last evening with Rev. Henry
Young, of Ymir, as moderator On
motion it was decided to issue a call
to Rev. Peter Wright to take tlie pastorate of the church made meant hy
the resignation of Rev. R. Frew. The

Gray and the committee wns directed
to forward the resolutions to the
families of the deceased.
It waa stnted last evening that Rev.
R. Fiev was now in Constantinople.
A copy of tho Levant Herald, published in Constantinople, gives an
account of a large gathering at Somer-
vi lie house, Constantinople, on Saturday, January 4th, of members of the
Dutch chapel (Evangelical Union
church) to welcome the new pnstor,
the Rev. R, Krew The Rev. Dr.
Hannington, acting ns chairman, introduced tbe new pastor in an appropriate address. The Rev. Mr. Frew,
he said, had come from Canada where
he had spent 12 years. His health
broke down in the early part of last
year, hov��ever, and he was obliged to
seek a milder climate. Constantinople, will, it is hoped, prove more
favorable to his censtitution.
Dr. Washburn, the next speaker
dwelt humorously on ihe anomalies
in church worship to be met with in
Constantinople, alluding chiefly to
little regard to denominations as instanced in the fact that there were
present adherents of at lenst 15 denominations. Several other speakers
made short addresses.
Rev. Mr.Frew in replying expressed
his gratitude for the very warm reception which had been extended to him.
He felt, ho said, that he had been
treated moro like a friend than a
minister. Mr. Frew then referred to
some of his Canadian experiences in
a style which greatly amused his
hearers.

Victoria, Feb. 3.���News of a most
extensive conspiracy to assassinate
the empress-dowager ot China aud
members of the court and foment a
wide spread rebellion, wbich was to
Involve the whole Chinese empire was
received by the steamer Glenesk. The
discovery of the plot was made while
the court was at Kaifeng when an unsuccessful attempt was made to destroy the palaces and their inmates by
fire. After the failure of this attempt
snome of the incendiaries were arrested by the Honan provincial officials
and torture was at once applied with
a view of extorting confession. One
of the conspirators,aged 18 years only,
at last broke down and confessed.
He told of attempts that were to be
made to wreck the imperial train and
fire on her from the side of the line.
A search of the captured men's
houses resulted in the discovery of
correspondence and detailed reports on
the strength of the garrisons of all the
cities of importance in China, and all
particulars relating to their strength
and defence. The books of the society
containing the names of the members
were also found and there will be
wholesale arrests. Correspondence
was also found from the China Reform association to the conspirators.
When the plot was discovered ample
guards were placed along the route by
Viceroy Yuan Shih Kai and the court
was not molested, en route. Hnd the
plot not been discovered the court
would have delayed long before going
to Pekin.
News has been received of thc safety
of the overdue British bark Kelverdalo
which is 03 days out from Manila for
Royal roads. She was sighted on
Saturday by the steamer Glenesk oft'
Cape Flattery. The Kelverdale was
reinsured st 3 per cent, her owners
fearing for her on account of typhoons
which raged in the eastern seas soon
after the bark sailed from the Philippines in ballast.
Chas. W. A. Neill has inued writs
here against the Nolson Electric Tramway company,and the New Vancouver
Coal company, of Nanaimo, for
$94,900. The action will bo taken for
himself and for the king, the sum
mentioned being the penalties and
forfeitures for alleged failure to report
receipts, traffic returns, accidents,
etc., as required under the Railway
Act of Canada, Victoria 51, sections
299, 300, 803 and 304.
[The writ in this section has been
served on the company here. The requirements of the Canada Railway Act
are often overlooked by both companies and the government, muoh the
same as the provisions of the Companies act with regard to certain returns that are to he made, and for
failure in making which there arc
heavy penalties provided, It is not
usuul for such nn action as this to bo
mnde by a private Individual.)

FIRST CONTINGENT.
W. Hart Mcllarg of Rossland Has
Written Its History.
Rossland, Feb. 8.���W. Hart Mcllarg, bnrrlstcr, of Rossland, who
served through tbe South African campaign in the Royal Canadian regiment
ns cergcant, and who is now a lieutenant in tho Rocky Mountain
Rangers, has written a clover book
entitled "Prom tjnebec to Pretoria
with the Royal Canadian Regiment."
The volume is to be issued in Torcntc
shortly from tbe press of William
llrlggs and will give an accurate
recital of the events In the history of
Canada's flrst contingent. In his
battle scenes, particularly that of
Paardeherg, Mi. Moiling is pattiou-
Inrly strong. Rossland people are
looking forward to the appearance of
the volume with keen interest.
Waterbury, Conn., Feb. 3.���Smouldering ruins mark tho main business
section oi this city as the result of a
fire that broke out last night and
continued until morning. The exact
loss is difficult to obtain, but it will
be about $4,000,000. There is a very
strong suspicion that the fire that
destroyed the Scovill house, which
burned after the first outbreak was
partially under control, was started
by an incendiary. The hotel fire
originated in the pool and billiard
room in the basement of the house on
the side farthest from the burning
district nnd all bent for the room waB
supplied frum a boiler in another part
of thc building. No one could be
found to explain its origin nud the
authorities nre investiga'ing.
The flames had only begun to die
out down along Hank, Grand ano
south Main streets, where the main
fire occurred, when it was found that
the hotel was on fire and something
resembling a panic occurred. It was
evident the building was doomed and
if the file should reach lho adjacent
buildings there would be very little
hope of saving the centre of the oity.
The fire blazed far into the day and
was not extinguished entirely until
evening,
The main fire out through the heart
of the city and a tangle in tho net
work ot wires hindered the work ol
extinguishing the last flames and
clearing away the wreckage but telephone communication, lighting facilities and electric power were restored
before nightfall.
A revised list of losses and insurance is very difficult to obtain at this
time. Few know just what the loss
was on their buildings and stock. The
remarkable feature of the fire was
undoubtedly the absence, so far as
known, of loss of life. Ohas. i. Kent,
of the Holmes, Booth nnd Hayden
Co., and a member oI the board of
education, and the second cook of tbe
hotel were reported missing but have
been located. Only two oases of
slight injury have been reported.
The rebuilding of the ruined structures is only a qurstion of time.
Temporary quarters have been secured
by all the firms, though small, and
the merchants expect soon to be In
commodious quarters. Many have
already telegraphed for new stock and
will resume business immediately.
The American Publishing company is
among the heaviest losers. The building is entirely ruined, but the paper
was issued in an abbreviated lorm
tonight. Tho walls of the mechanical
department are still standing and it
is said that it will be removed immediately. Tho presses and machines are
believed to be not seriously damaged
through buried under water and
debris. There has been more or less
disorder about the streets which were
piled with household goods and
strewn with small artioles thrown
from the windows, but tlio amount of
thieving was small with the opportunities offered,
MR. WU CALLED DOWN.
Gompers Objects to Chinese Minister
Calling Him An Agitator.
Washington, Feb. 3.���The house
committeo on Foreign affairs today
heard Immigration Commissioner
Powderly and President Gompers of
the Federation of Labor, in favor of
strict Chinese exclusion as provided in
the Mitchell-Kahn bill. In tho
course of his remarks, Mr. Gompirs
criticized Wu Ting Fang, tho Chinese
tniniater.saying,: "i resent the sneering remark of a foreign diplomat that
I am an agitator, or a labor agitator
or that the laboring people of this
country who are endeavoring to prefect themselves from Chinese labor,
aro agitators. 1 deny the right of a
representative of a foreign government
addressing himself to an official of
our government and referring to
American citizens in such a manner
as this and particularly whon su:h
references are of a derogatory character. The Chinese minister is treated
in this country with every becuming
courtesy and he has no right to make
insinuations upon American citizens
upon behalf of the laboring men of
this country, whom I represennt as
the president of the Federation of
Labor. I repeat that I resent these remarks on the part of the Chinese
minister."

the same interests. There will be the
same sort of articles. Tho Nelson
Tribune will have an article which
doubtless will appear as a special in
the Vancouver Province. The Rossland Miner will doubtless print Fort
Steel and Trail specials, aud these in
turn will be copied by the Cranbrook
Herald or others of the papers supporting tbo selfish railway policy.
The material at the disposal of the
tools of the monopoly, which is very
small and of uncertain quality, will
bo spread over as many columns with
largo head lines and made to do as
much duty as possible. A regular
tempest in a teapot will be raised in
the hope of deceiving and deluding
the public. Tbe railway company
was discouraged at the fiasco made of
the crusade which began a few weeks
since. Editorial visits havo been
made to Montreal and a new plan of
campaign of misrepiesentation has
been mapped out and doubtless ample
sinews of war havo been obtained.
Tray, Blanche and Sweetheart will
again bark in unison.
It Is evident from the recent utterances of one of these organs tbat the old
threadbare stock of sophistries are to
be used. Under the mask of patriotism
tho people are to bo again appealed to
to save tbe country lor the C. P. B.
The cry of the organs is that the
smelting industry is to be driven to
the other side ot tbe international
bounaary line unless the price of coke
Is lowered and Jim Hill is stopped
from taking coke and coal out of the
country. Stop Hill and make the
Crow's Nest Coal company sell coke
for 81 or $2 a ton, or failing in thiB
give the C, V. R., the saviour of
Canada, 50,000 acies of coal land so
that it may head off tho effort to
sell tho country out.
One feature of the campaign is the
sending unt of agents through the
length and breadth of tho province to
Induce boards of trade to adopt resolutions favorable to the pinna of the
conspirators and monopolists. There
is an organized and a considerable
movement on tho part of the lackies of
thc monopoly to stifle legitimate enterprise and to prevent the development of the country, except where it is
to the benefit of the ono overshadow
ing monopoly to do it. They are
stealing the very livery of heaven to
serve this ilovil of monopoly and It
iu as shameful a prostitution as has
ever been witnessed in any country or
any clime. "Ch, foi a whip in every
honest hand to lash such rascals naked
through the land."
Was ever such rot, pure and simple,
published as is appearing in the
columns of tho C, P. Ii. organs concerning the driving of tho smelting
industry of the province into the
states. All the facts arc against such
a contingency. The O.l'.K. smelter nt
Trail bas been largely increased since
it was taken over by its present owners. The capacity of the Oranby
smeltor has been doubled. The
smelter at (Ireenwood is boing enlarged so that it may reduce twice as
much ore as hitherto, Tho Nelson
reduction plant has beon Increased
from a small copper stick to its present siz.i. The plant at Nortbport,
which operates exclusively on Kossiand ore, has recently linen doubled in
size. At Marysville iu East Kootenay
a lead smelter and lead refinery are
being erected, with tho Intention,
later on, of putting in corroding
works. Trail, is adding a lead refinery to the smelting plant. If those
plants had not boen profitable ad-
ditlous would not have been made to
tbem
-AT-
restricted to the home demand.
Besides this the coal measures of
the Crow's Nest Pass extend for a considerable distance into Alberta and at
Blairmore, Frank and other points
there are companies engaged in opening up coal seams and in some
instances selling the coal. There is
coal enough iu these measures to
supply the entire North American
continent for a century ana yet despite this fact thc organs are endeavor
ing to create the impression that the
smelters of British Columbia which
only use a few hundred tons a day
will run short of coal and coke.
The quantity which is daily extracted from thc Crow's Nest measures
is already largely in excess of the
home demand, aud an outlet must be
found for it somewhere or the force of
miners and coke mtIters must be cut
down to a few hundred men. J.J. Hi'l
is builing a railway line into tbe coal
fields and as soon ns this is dono he
intends to use the coal on his locomotives for several hundred miles along
his line and to market the coal at
faotories, smelters -and elsewhere
along the Great Northern system. If
tho Canadian Pacifio railway had boon
reasonable in its charges for tbe haulage of coke and ooal the Great
Northern would now be using much
more of the Crow's Nest coal than it
does and in all probability tne Crow's
Nest Southern wonld have never been
projected and built.
If the matter is looked into closely
it will be found that ono of the main
causes of the so-called high price of
coke and coal to the smelters of Trail,
Grand Forks, and Greenwood is the
high charge for haulage of the
Canadian Pacfiic railway, The people
must not, however, lose fight of the
main point for which the C. P. R. is
raising all this fuss about, which is
simply to secure the 50,000 acres ot
coal land in the Crow's Nest basin
which the government had reserved
for the benefit of the people. Give the
C. P. R. tnis laud and tho present
crusade would die a natural death.

KIGHTS OF STOCKHOLDERS.
The right of a stockholder to inspect
a mine of wbich he is part owner is
recognized in Now Zealand more
fully than in this country, or indeed
ln any mining country of which we
are aware, says tbo Mining and
Engineering Journal. The mining
law of 1808 provides that any person
owning a share or interest in any
mine is entitled to enter and inspect
that mine, with or without an atten.
dant expert, on any working day be
tween the hours of noon and 1 o'clook
and for any manager or director to
obstruct such inspection is to commit
an offensd against the law, which is
puuishable by serious penalties Even
this is uot considered sufficient, and
a bill is now pending in the New
Zealand parliament to inoreasu the
time allowed and otherwise enlarge
the stockholder's right to inspect his
property.
The New Zealand law is ono which
could with advantage be copied by
British Columbia. In some Instances
the management of mines scums to
consider that thc stockholders havo no
rights which should be respected. Tho
stockholder, even though he be a
minority stockholder, should have the
privilege of examining tlio workings
of any property in whioh he may be
interested, with restrictions as to
hours and length of examination.
Some managers seem to think that
only a favored few consisting of tho
directorate, etc., should bo given information regarding properties and
often this information is used for the
private benefit of those officials. There
is need for reform in this direction
nnd a law should be cnactod allowing
stockholders to visit the workings at
a cortain hour in the day and another
compelling the issuanoe of reports
showing the condition of fall stock
companies at least onco a month.
The more stockholders aro taken into
thu confidence of the management the
better it is for the mining industry.

EAST KOOTENAY DELGATES.
Placer
Activity Among Coal and
MiDCS���Legislative Possibilities.
15, C. Smith, M.P.P.,for East Knote
Day, of Fort Steele, P. Stork, of Fernie anil B. E. Heaitle, of Cranbrook,
delegates to the Liberal convention to
ue hold in Vancouver, on Thursday,
spent yesterday in Nelson on their
way to the coast. They go under
instructions lrom their associations to
support the introduction of party lines
into provincial polities. Mr. Smith,
wbo under the arrangement as to the
voting power of delegates originally
announced, would have been entitled
to a seat on the door of the convention as a Liberal member of the provincial lcigslature, was as well appointed a delegate by the Fort Steele
association that there might bj no
doubt abont his having a seat. There
being three associations in thu electoral riding of East Kootenay, and
that being the number of delegates
that the riding was allotted, each of
the associations   was entitled   to elect
one.
Mr. Smith reports considerable
activity among the placer diggings in
the vicinity of Fort Steel, those on
Perry creek BO far yielding the best
retirns. The Thompson company
sank 11 shaft of 80 feet and then
drifted, coming on an old river Ded.
They have recently been taking out
from $18 to $20 to the man per day.
immediately alter news of this got
abroad the whole IS miles of the creek
was soon staked on leases and a great
dea I "of work is being done. Jennings
and Ihciss have probably the most
dono on their lease which is about
three miles above the Thompson property. ()n Wild Horse creek quite a
number are working bnt as the bnd
rock is below the level of the present
river bed these diggings cannot be
worked satisfactorily except by
hydraulic elevators. On Weaver creek
some drifting is being done and the
rim rock has been reached, but as it
descends sharply the characteristic
blue earth in which the gold is found
in those parts, is comparatively bar
ren and returns have not boen good so
fur, though the other day a $40 nugget
as brought in. With tho last work
the bed rock was becoming more level
mid it was expeoted that gold in paying quantities would be found where
the bed rock became such as would
hold it. The rock waB smooth and
the gold worn, as if it had been washed for a considerable distance.
Mr. Stork reports business brisk at
Fernie though the smallpox trouble
bnd interfered with it to Borne extent,
lt hnd been decided to raise the quarantine on Monday but on Saturday
another case broke out and there
would be further delay. The Crow's
Nest Coal company at Morrissey had a
force of about 200 men engaged opening new coal mines there; the graling
was done for a spur from the main
line lo the mines and it was exepected
that within two weeks that the laying
of steel on the five mile spur would
begin. At Fcrnlc shipments ol 2,000
tons a day were being made and when
the Morrissey mines are opened the
quantity would be much larger.
Nothing was being done on the Bull
river iron mines just now, but if they
be developed, as they are likely to be,
lhe operation of them in connection
with the proximity of the coal mines
will make Fernie and the surrounding
towns bee-hives of industry. Work is
going ahead with all possible speod
ou thc Crow's Nest Southern and it is
expected that tho line will be running
about the first of June.
As tu tbe approaching session of the
provincial legislature Mr. Smith said
that it looked aB if the government
was calling the house only for a
dissolution, as it was not likely that
tho cabinet was ready for the transaction of business. There were two
cabinet positions to fill and the
chances were against tho government
being able to Mil these. He would
aseeitain while at the coaBt whether
there was likely to be the active
transaction of business when the
house (ipened, and if there was not he
would return home. As he understood it there were seventeen members
pledged in writing or by word to vote
against the Dunsmuir government
and with the vacant seat the cabinet
could not carry on the business of the
country. He had little hope of obtaining a fair rodistrbution measure
from the present house. Ho considered
that tho upper countrj was more
strongly Liberal than Conservative
and hence there would naturally
endeavor made by the Conservatives
to keep down the representation of
the Kootenays. The redistribution hy
a commission of thc judges, would, he
thought, produce the best results.
not know until yesterday that the
date had been changed from the 80th
January. Mr. Mcintosh speaks in
glowing terms cf the new towsnite
of Ashnola. owned by the Similkameen Coal company, and in the course
of a conversatiou this morning said
that in his opinion it has a great
future, as it controls the only available smelter sites for the largest ore
bodies in that district.
Mr. Mcintosh says the Tillman
Lumber company is under contract to
cut 50,000 feet per month for the
townsite company. The brewery is
about tn be eiected and a large hotel.
The town's luture largely depends on
its large ooal areas, which the
Similkameen Valley Coal company
largely controls, and lhe value of
which has been demonstrated for the
discovery of a good quality of coaking
coal. This, in the event of the Ciiast-
Kootenuy railway, would place them
in a commanding position in regard
to the smelter supply of the Boundary. Coal from Ashonla could be laid
down in the smelting centres of the
Uoundary at a figure whioh the Crow's
Nest Company could not possibly approach. Not only this, but the home
demand must also be very great, as
the Similkameen distiict is known to
be one of unparalleled richness and
mineral wealth. Within a radius of
35 miles there are now some 15 mining
camps whose values have already
been demonstrated, This will demand a smelting centre which necessarily will be somewhere in the coal
area, either in Princeton or Ashnola.
Princeton undoubtedly will be the
commercial centre of the district, as
its central situation will develop
avenues of supply which no other
town can displace. Ashnola,however,
with the adjacent water power at
Nine-Mile oreek, surrounded as it is
by coal and its close proximity to the
immense deposits of ore, will undoubtedly be tbe smelting centre of
the district,. The Similkameen Coal
company, owners of the townsite, are
therefore in a position to successfully
dispute the competition of any other
company.
Mr. Mcintosh leaves tomorrow for a
short trip to Viotoria.���Vancouver

.T.   Charles Molntosh,   barrister,   of
I'rlnceton   district   is at the Comroer
IMPORTANT STRIKE.
First-Class Bituminous Coal Struck at
a Depth of 70 Feet in Siinilka*
mwn Valloy.
Mr. Sam Spencer, of Princton, arrived here Wednesday, and is stopping
at the Leland. Mr. Spencer brings
news ot it most important strike of
bituminous coal in the Similkameen
Valley. For some time the Vermillion
Mining and Development Co., the
stock uf which is principally owned in
England, and which is managed by
Mr. Waterman, M E., has been boring noar the townsite of Princeton.
Recently at a depth of 70 feet a soam
of good quality of lignite 25 feet thick
was struck, and a little below that a
seam 10 feet thick of what is pronounced by experts to be first-class
bituminous coal was Struck. The
company making the strike has endeavored to keep the information
secret, but it leaked out, and Mr.
Spencer Hays there Is no doubt about
the strike having Deen mado.
This is mott important information,
for tlio several companies interested in
the coal fields of the Siniilkameon
Valley, and tho strike will also have a
most important bearing on the mining
and smelting Interests of llritish
Columbia. Tne Similkameen valloy
contains some wonderful deposits of
cupper aud gold ores, and is also convenient to the Uoundary creek distriot,
and now that it bas been demonstrated that it contains good coking
coal, it will lead to the construction
of smelt?rs in this district and have a
tendenoy to cheapen the cost of smelting, as the coal of the Similkameen
Valley can be mined cheaply. This
strike bears out thc prediction of W.
Hlakemore, tbo well known coal mining expert, who recently reported
upon the lands of tne Similkameon
Valley Coal Co.

Drs. Hall and Rose have been appointed meilicnl officers for the Molly
Gibson mine, where the working force
at present is 4S men.
Messrs. Chittock and Moan have
completed their contract on the Juno
tunnel, which has now been driven in
for a distance of 700 feet.
Although the snow is now a little
too deep on the hike for skating
several large circles of lee have been
cleared off by the skaters and large
throngs are down each day enjoying
it.
At the police court yesterday morning a vagrant who had been arrested
was ordered to get out of tiw.-i without delay, whioh order he complied
with. The only other cases wero two
drunk., who were remanded until
today.

At the Achilles group, a continuation of the Molly Gibson, which Is
owned by C. Bherbert and E. W. Wil-
ley, a small force of men were kept
at work for some time developing lhe
property, which gives promise of tinning out very well. At present, owing
to tho difficulty of packing in supplies, only the cwners are working
there.
Until further notice K. R. and N.

Kaslo is discontinued owing to ice
blockade.   U, IC. Tackabury, agent.
On Sunday the iceboat built by
Messrs. Welch and Seaney was given a
trial there being sufficient wind to
make it travel at an eight mile rate.
This only lusted, however, while tho
craft was running before the wind,
and it was found impossible to tack
back so the owners were reluctantly
compelled to tow the ice boat back tu
its station at the foot of Hall street.
No one else was anxious to tost the
sailing qualities of the Unit, so it is
not likely lhat there will lie any rnces
with ice boats such as were talked of
last week.

Bruce White, of the Molly Gibson
mine, who is stopping at the Phair,
yesterday stated that so far the mine,
since it recommenced shipping in
December last, had sent 44:3 tons to
the Hall Mines sinoiter at Nelson,
and another 100 tons of ore is lying at
tho lauding awaiting transportation
The mine is in first class shape and
besides the getting out of ore considerable development work is being
done on the lower tunnel, which is
now in 700 feet. Shipping was somewhat hampered by the lack of snow
for sleighing in the earlier part ol the
winter but for the last three weeks
there has been sufficient and the ore
is being brought down as rapidly as
possible.
On the main lake no ice has accumulated so fur thin winter, with the
exception of a small part near Kootenay Landing over the Hals. The west
arm, however, is frozen practically
from tlie outlet to below Nelson, with
the exception of a narrow channel
whi.-h is being kept open as lur as
Mi.liy Gibson Landing. On lhe Arrow
Lukcs a channel is kept open by the
steamers,       but     witli     considerable
difficulty, the boats being generally
from an hour to two hours Into in
in-riving at either end. On Slocan
lake for some reason connected witli
the tlopth and currents, very little ice
has formed ami no ililllculty with the
ice is being experienced by the steamers in keeping up tu scheduled time.
All the Hinnller lanes are frozen up.
TRIMITK OF RESPECT.
At tlic Anglican church on Sunday

following eloquent tribute to tbe late
J. Roderick Robertson:     "It   plensed
nl in the early part of last week to
take home one of the leading citzens
of this town, if not the leading
citizen, in the person of James Roderick Robertson. Far from home and
family, and from the town of his
adoption, death come to him 'swiftly
as a weaver's shuttle.' Ho was a man

respected for his integrity, aud loved
for hia kindliness. As his funeral
look place ho far away it was not pos-
sihle for us to (lo,,liinj the last honors
of attending it. Hut as 11 means uf
showing onr esteem for him and out
deep sympathy with his buurcaved
family, I have thought it well that
the 'Death March' should lie played at
the close of tllis service and that the
congregation should stunil while it is
being played."
llefore the "Head March" wns rendered by the orgunist the elioii sang
''l'eaee, Perfect Pence." Then tbo
mournful man h was executed od tlio
organ while the congregation stood
reverently uetil the last notes of the
sad dirge-like tones died away.
Because an evening dress suit looks
smooth and glossy nnil litis s'liiie cheap
silk trimmings, that's not saying its
good. The proper cloth is an all
Botany wool, chevoit "special dve"
that looks soft nnd rich in artificial
light nnd the pan's won't hag at the
knee. Our sort.���The. Wallace-Miller
