(Sl'ISCIAI.S TO TUB MINER.)
Winnipeg, April 3.���The jury in the
case of Donald Todd, on trial for tbe
murder of John Gordon, returned a
verdict of guilty of manslaughter.
���Sentence was reserved, as the case is
not finally disposed of by the verdict
or even by a sentence, if one is now
passed upon Todd, for the reason that
in the course of the trial, the judge
reserved the point raised by the prisoner's counsel as to tbe admissability
of evidence concerning Todd's concession. It was contended that the
confession was not a free and voluntary act on the part of Todd and cannot therefore be set against him.
The point of law will be argued before the couit in May.

statisticans of the Dominion. The
enumerators for Nelson and others
who will work out of tbla city gather:
ed at the Queen's hotel last night to
meet A. Bernard Buckwpr.tli, of Ymir,
commissioner for the Nelson riding,
who deliveied 'the final instructions
to the men, administered tbe oath
provided and notified them to commence work-'without further delay.
For census purposes the riding bas
been divided into five distiiets as follows:
No. 1.���Bounded on the west by the
Columbia river, skirting the city lim-,
ita on the north, on the east by the\
divide between Kootenay lake and
the Salmon river, on tbe south by tbe
international Boundary line.
No. 2.���Town of Ymir.
No. 3.���City of Nelson.
No. 4.��� The section bounded on the
noith by the west arm of Kootenay
lake, extending acioss the lake to
the watershed of East and West Kootenay. south to the head of Goat river
and south west to Sirdar including
t'fie town of Sirdar, west to the head
of Sheep cieek.
No. 5.���Bounded on the north by
the southern line of district No. 4,
east to the watershed of East and
West Kootenay, west to the divide
between Kootenay lake ami; the Salmon river, south to the international
boundary line.
The enumerators who will gather
the statistics under the direction of
Mr.Buckworth are as follows:
Distriot No. 1.���E. W. Staplcford,
of Ymir.
No. 3.���Alfred Parr, ol Ymir.
No. 4.���John E. Paul, of Ymir.
No. 5.���Arthur Okell, of Creston.
To expedite the work in Nelson
the city haB been divided into six subdivisions which with the enumerators
for ea'jh are as follows:
Sub-division A.���J. D. McLeod,
enumerator, commencing at the lake
front and extending south on Park
street to Carbonate thence east along |
the survey line to the railroad track.
All the section north of these limits
will be included in   the  sub-division.
Sub-division B. ��� James Bannerinan,
enumerator, commencing at the lake
front and extending south on Park
street to Vernou street, west on Vernon to Cedar street, south to Baker
street and west to Cottonwood   creek.
Sub-division C���C. Pi McRostie,
enumerator, commencing at the intersection of Park and Veinon streets
west to Cedar street, south on Cedar
to Baker, west to Hendryx street,
south to city limits, and .ounded on
the north by the survey line to a
point on Carbonate street.
Sub-division D.���A. J, Curie, enum-
eiator, bounded on the north by Ilu-
kcr street, on the west by Josephine
street, on the east by Hendryx and
on the south by the city limits.
Siih-divsiion E.���George Broadley,
enumerator, bounded on the north by

Sub-division F.���George Doyle,
enumerator, bounded on the north by
Baker street,, on the enst by Stanley
street, on the west by the city limits
and on the south by  the city   limits.
The power of the enumerator is almost autocratic, und he will delve
deeply into matters generally considered of a private nature, but it should
be born) in mind that all the officials
are bound by an oath to strictest secrecy. They are not allowed to show
their schedule to any other person or
make a copy of it.
The enumerator will want to know,
besides your age, oolor, nationality
and religion, how much money you
make. If you don't answer him he

words as possible, ask the necessary
questions, and make the proper entries, and leave the premises as soon
as his business is transacted. His conduct, the instructions further state,
must be judicious, and it is only
when persons refuse to answer questions that legal proceedings may be
taken against them. And when the
enumerator or census commissioner
does take action against the close
mouthed or uncivil householder, he
gets half the fine, that is, providing
be doesn't have to go into the witness
box to prove his case. If he does, tbe
Crown gets tbe whole business.
It will facilitate the work considerably if heads of families will have the
following Information ready: Year,
month and day of birth of each member of the family, origin, nationality,
religion, occupation or trade, amount
earned by same; number of town lots,
dwelling houses and stores owned or
leased, and value of same; dates of
deaths and cause of death of any member of the family during the]ear ending March 31.

columns to fill in, so when he comes
to see you, a busy half-hour may be
expeeted. Under the sub-heading of
"personal description" he will ask
the following quescions: Name of
each person in the family or household on March 31, 1901, sex, color, relationship to bead of family or household, single, muiried, widowed or divorced, month and date of birth, year
of birth, age at last birthday.
Then under the head of "citizenship, nationality, religion," the following are the questions: Country
or place of birth, year of immigration
to Canada, year of naturalization, racial or tribal origin, nationality, religion.
Regarding "Principal Professions
or Trade," the following questions
will be asked: Living on own means,
employer, employee, working on own
account.
"Wage Earner" is the next subheading with the following inquisitive blanks: Months employed at
trade in factory, months employed at
trade in home, months employed In
other occupation than trade In factory or house, earning from oocupa
tion or trade, extra earnings.

The last blank is that of infirmities.

a table of agricultuial values, lands,
buildings, rents. The eighth schedule

Mr. Bnckworth estimates that his
staff will complete the work in two
weeks. The government's ordinary
regulations call foi an eight hour day
for the enumerators but it has been
agreed by the men at work in the Nelson riding that each will put in ten
hours daily in order that the census
may be finished on time. The remuneration is arranged so that the
men will be paid for the extra time

THE PLAGUE  AT   CAPETOWN.

corpses have been found in the streets
and houses, indicating efforts to conceal contact with the disease. The
total number of deaths from the

plague.
IT CREATED A SURPRISE
AN   UNEXPECTED   JUDGMENT   IS
HANDED DOWN IN M'LAREN
VS.   BILLINGS.
PLAINTIFF AWARDED A DECISION
-IT AFFECTS VALUABLE MINING   PROPERTIES.
Word was received here yesterday
that Mr. Justice Irving had handed
down his judgment in the case ol
McLaren vs. Billings, awarding plaintiff a decision. The case is of consid
erable Interest and importance in this
section, involving as it does a large
interest in the selling price of the
Yellowstone mine and the title t<
other valuable Sheep creek mining
property. The decision was somewhat
of the nature of a surprise to the
members of the local legal fraternit)
who had inferred from the remarks oi
Mr. Justice Irving at the close of tht
trial here tbat the plaintiff had noi
established his ease. It in understood
that an appeal will be entered and
that the case may be carried direct
to the supreme court of Canada.
IMPORTANT POSTAL REFORM.
Postal Orders to and From United
States at Trifling Rate of Exchange.
Washington, April 3.���An arrangement has been concluded between the
United States and Canada under
which all postal monies between this
country and Canada will go at the
domestic rate of three-tenths of one
per cent, instead of the international
rato of one per cent, as at present.
This concession is regarded as more
important to the money order business than any action taken since the
inception of the system.
The money orders annually sent to
Canada, now aggregnte about 8-',000,-
000 and In the other direction u little
less than that amount. The exchange
of these orders is now restricted to
four thousand offices in this country,
but under the new arrangement will
be extended to 30,000 offices In this
country. Any money officer in either
country are thus authorized to issue or pay them. It is said that the
radical reduction in the rates will
treble the business.
SICK   OF CHINA.
RUSSIA IS
TURNED DOWN
German Soldiers Anxious to Return
to tlie Fatherland.
Berlin, April 3.���All lctcrs received
nowadays from China tell of the
homesickness of the German troops.
The corespondent of the Berliner
Tagcblatt says that "the whole German contingent is thoroughly disappointed and tired of China."
Published letterB from officers tell
the same tale, A correspondent of
the Frankfurter Zcitung mentions a
number of cases where missionaries
by the wholesale blackmailed the Chinese- He asserts that "Mr. Edmonds,
an American missionary, was arrested
in Pekin by tho French, but subsequently, released on the demand of
the American authorities."
The ministry of war finds it very
difficult to obtain volunteers to replace
the homebound soldiers in China. On
Monday not one volunteer here responded at the meeting of the rever-
ista.
China Refused to Sign the
Manchurlan Convention.
Now Up to the Bear to Make
Bluffs Good���Other
Notes.
Pekin, April 3.���The Chinese government has formally notified Russia
that China, owing to the attitude of
the powers, is not able to sign the
Manchurlan convention.
"It is China's desire," says the
formal notification, "to keep On
friendly tonus with all nations. At
present she is going through a period
which is tlie most perilous in the
empire's history and it is necessary
that she should have the friendship of
all. However much she might be
willing to grant any special privilege
to one power, when others object, it is
impossible that for the sake of making one nation friendly, she should
alienate the sympathies of all others."
Li Hung Chang says this letter set-
lies the matter definitely and that
Russia was Infoimally notified to the
same effect March 20th. Prince Citing
asserts that every Chinaman except
LI Hung Chang was against signing
the convention.
. H
Pekin, April 3.���As soon as the
���gents of the powers notify the ministers as to what disposition is deair-
���d of articles VIII and IX of the protocol, everything will lie practically
-(included fcxeept the indemnities, the
mly claims not ready being the English, German and Japanese. The
ilermans say they can be ready in two
lays and the Japs assert that they
���an be ready nt a moment's warning.
Private claims, howevei, can be filed
���intil May 14th, A majority of tho
ninisters are in favor of making a
.'uneriil claim so soon as the government claims arc in, making allowance] for a few thousands for possi-
-ile future claims.
Lt Hung Chang and Prince Cblng
;iave sent to the court of approval a
list of names presented by the ministers of the powers for punishment,
die death list has been reduced to
four names for degradation and to
.1 for loss of oflice. No ojectlou is anticipated as the men are only prominent in local communities.

HEAVY SNOW STORM.
Much Damage Done in Pennsylvania
���Traffic Blocked.
Pittsburg, Pa., April 3.���From
.'arty morning Pittsburg lias been in
the toils of one of the worst snow
storms ever experienced in this region. At about U o clock this morning a heavy clinging snow began falling and it was not long before the
wires began snapping In all directions, crippling telephone, telegraph
and trolley service. The unexpected
and severe nature of the storm caught
the local railroad officials off their
ijuartl. and the condition of traffic
upon the eastern roads is terrible.
On the Pennsylvania wires are down
and trains are stalled at various
points. Tlie depth ou the mountain
is from 1!* to 15 Inches and la so
heavy that it has brought down poles
and wires along the road. Extra
gangs have been requlier on all tialna
aud unless the snow fall ceases a
blockade is imminent. The Buffalo A
Alleghany system is in almost tbe
same condition. On tbe Western New
York A Pennsylvania division, the
snow is from 10 to 15 inches in depth,
the wires are dowu and and.tbe
train schedule has been abandoned..
BELLICOSE   JAPS.
Russia's Action Regarded As a Direct
Challenge. ��� ���'""
London, April 4.���"The Japanese
press continues very bellicose," say*
the Yokahama correspondent of the
Oally Mail, wiring yesterday, "Count
Okuiua, ifoiiuerly premier and now
leader of the opposition), declares in
the course of au incisive article that
Japan must assert herself or the work
of thirty years will be lost. Korea,

THE   PEOPLE   INTERESTED.
Hon. A. U. Blair, minister of railways and canals in the federal cabinet, when the bill to incorporate
tho Crow's NeBt Southern railway
came up before the railway committee on Tuesday, asked that consideration of the same be deferred, as there
were some points outside the companies concerned in which the public
were interested. This suggestion
was agreed to, and consideration of
the bill stands over until next Thursday. Mr. Blair did a very proper
thing. Tbe public are interested
(juite as much as the applicants and
the C. P. R. in seeing that their interests are protected. It is one
thing for parties to un agreement to
settle their differences, and another
thing for the general public to pass
judgment upon that agreement before
the measure upon which it is based
receives parliamentary sanction. Mr.
Blair's action may, we think, be
construed as indicating that it is the
government's intention to take care
that there shall be incorporated in
the bill such provisions as will remove beyond the realm of doubt any
possibility that the building of the
proposed line will operate to the disadvantage of the mining interests of
Southern British Columbia. No
donbt that can be done without interfering at all with the plans and
Intentions of the appplicants for tbe
charter; but Mr. Blair is deserving
of commendation for the vigilance
and determination he displays in
insisting tbat it shall be done.
THE REVOLT IN RUSSIA.
_______
Everything indicates that Russia
Ik on the eve of a great revolution.
Riots aie occurring daily and tbe
spirit of resistance to a continuation
of despotic government is rapidly
growing stronger among all classes of
the people. It is very difficult for we
who are enjoying the liberty which
is given to all wherever the flag of
Britain flies to get at the facts of the
disturbances such as are now devastating Russia���a country where there is
no parliament, where meetings and
public speeches are prohibited and
where there is no organized or officially acknowledged body representing
the populaton higher than a county
council. A writer in the Match Forum, Felix Volkhovsky, de,.' i ci
tertalnlhgly and exhaustive!, witn
the situation in Russia, lie says that
the tale of Russian Imperial misrule.
of the obstacles put in the way of progress, is long and harrowing; but despondency is not its moral. The waste
of energy caused in Russia by the
present antiquated system of government is enormous; it is sufficient to
make one's heart bleed and one's
blood boil; yet it is uot sufficient to
Btop altogether the progress of the nation toward a freer and better and
brighter day. In the relentless struggle between tbe vital forces of the
people and the pitiless, all-grasping
system of police tutelage, which
makes every effort to keep them
down, there is always a balance,
however small, In favor of progress.
And It cannot be otherwise, because
the government, however reactionary
in its tendencies, inspired by the instinct of self-preservation, must inevitably, to a certain extent and in certain points, uphold with one hand
what it tries to crush with the other.
M. Volkhovsky concludes with an
appeal for sympathy. Russia must
compete with the other nations and
progress is the deadliest enemy of
czardom. "This explains why Russians are so sensitive to international opinion. Official Russia watches
that opinion with anxiety as a bolometer showing how fur she is acknowledged to be an international
quantity. Popular Russia looks at
tbat opinion with hope, as at a manifestation of the precious bond existing
between herself and the universal progress of mankind. Remember this,
that every token of fraternal feeling
toward the Russian people��� eveiy
manifestation of sympathy with their
hopes���i�� an Indirect, yet real, factor
in bringing nearer the realization of
those hopes. And it must not be forgotten   tbat   by   bringing   it   nearer
THE KOSSLAND   SITUATION.
The large mining companies operating in the Rossland district have join-
,.H hand" in issuing a statement containing a warning .o thu Miners'
Union that if any action looking to a
change in the existing labor conditions is taken they will be forced to
close down their properties and only
re-open under a reduced scale of
wages. The Miner has no knowledge
of the existence of conditions which
the members of the Miners' union
would consider as unfair to themselves, but it sincerely hopes that if
any grievance does exist every possible endeavor to arrange an arnica-
Ibe settlement will be exhausted before any action is taken which will
precipitate a renewal of the disastrous
labor troubles which have In the past
worked to the great injury of the
province. The Rossland mine managers are very candid in stating their
position. They declare that any further trouble or expense to the companies at tins time will leave no alternative but to abandon their effort to
maintain wages at the old standard,
and they will be compelled to adopt
the long-considered plan of reducing
miners' wages to 83 per day and
muckers and unskilled surface labor
to 92 per day. They point out that
the accumulating burdens tbat have
been imposed upon the mining indus
try in this province are already heavy
to bear and if those burdens are in
creased it will be impossible to oper
ate the mines.on a paying basis. All
who have the true interests of the
country at heart will fervently hope
that trouble may be averted. As yet
no response has been made���of whicli
the public are cognizant���by the Miners' union to tbe notice posted by the
mine managers, and we trust that
due deliberation and an appreciation
of the consequences which might result from a conflict of interests will
be exercised before any decision is

j Freu.rlo Villiers, the famous war

rank treachery, und that no British
officer would have stooped to such an
act. Mr. Villiers ought to know what
he is talking about, but even if what
he says it true that will make no
difference with certain cIuescs in the

A REMARKABLE   CASE.
How   Millionaire   Rico   Was   Done to
Death By Ilin Servants.
New York, April 3.���Chnrles F.
Jones, who was tho valel-uceretary to
William Marsh Rice, the aged million-
ire, who according to aJones' confession yesterday, was murdered by the
aid of chloroform at No. 500 Madison
avenue in September last, linished his
testimony today on direct examination in the proceedings before Justice
Jerome, charging Albert T. Patrick
with murder. The story of the murder and conspiracy which Jones outlined on Tuesday, he today filled In
with a wealth of detail and with a
coolness and nerve which under the
circumstances was almost overwhelming.
According to the story of thu valet-
Becretory, he and Patrick had drawn
up the bogus will and were waiting
with what patience they could for old
man Rice to die. It was on cross-examination of the valet that Jones
really demonstrated that he was emotion-proof. Robert E. Moore, Patrick's
lawyer, went about tho oross-examiu-
ation in a spirit of thoroughness that
would have dismayed most men.
When he spoke of the killing of Rico,
he called it murder and he kept the
electric ohair in the mind of the man
on the witness stand, who heard
everything as calmly as if the thing
was only a perfunctory rehearsal. It
was impossible to shake the testimony
of the witness. The only point where
the attorneys for Patrick even appear
ed to shake the nerve and tbe confide/ice of Jones was whore they ex>
torted a statement from the valet that
be hoped by telling Ins present story
to escape the death penalty fot murder. If Jones was undisturbed by tlie
situation, he had no advantage over
Patrick. That extraordinary man
fluttered about the room chatting with
his friends anil paying more attention
to the witnesses and their friends
than to the details of the revolting
confession of the valet-secretary.
Patrick's defence will be a general
denial. It will nol be revealed in detail until the actual murder trial
takes place whicli will probably not
be until October next. Jones, according to the defense, was the arch-conspirator and Patrick wus only the Innocent tool of the valet. The greatest
���tress will be laid upon the fact by
the defence   that   Jones is <���   <���    .on-
fessed perjurer, and that in consequence his testimony and confessions
should obtain no credit.

DISGRACEFUL NEGLECT
A FAMILY IN POVERTY SUFFERS
OWING TO RED TAPE
ROUTINE.
INDIFFERENCE     DISPLAYED    BY
GOVERNMENT  IN MATTERS
WAITING SETTLEMENT.
An unfortunate case exists on the
section of the water front between
Ward and Josephine streets. A family consisting of five persons is suf-
ering from scarlet fever and the house
has been quarantined. The occupants who are in serious straits for
provisions, made known their situation to the officer in charge of the
quarantine. This was reported to
the civic authorities, who referred tlie
matter to the local government offi
cials, un the ground that the house
was without the city limits and that
the city was in no way responsible.
The government officials deelined to
grant any assistance,maintaining that
as the eity had established the quarantine it was up to the municipality
to look after the occupants. This is
denied by the municipal officers, who
claim that the quarantine was established by the physician who is acting
as city and district provincial health
officer during the absence of Dr. Lallan at the coast,and that as the house
is outside the city the officer was naturally acting in the capacity of pro
vincial officei, hence the province is
liable. Nor does the city propose to
lake any step which would admit liability and has refused to extend assistance. The unfortunate people in
the fever stricken home would probably have had to turn to private charity, had not .1. K. Strachan, city
clerk, thought of the United Charities' Organization, and directed the
applicants to Secretary Sims. The organization had a few dollars available
and made a small grant sufficient to
tide the family over or a few days.
When these resources ate exhausted
the situation is likely to be revived
again.
The City of Nelson had an experience of the ingratitude of the province
in quarantine matter* last year,
when the municipality allowed a
smallpox patient to be brought into
the city and placed in a pest house
on the city park ground across Cottonwood creek. The city was put to
heavy expense and a score of professional and business men are still
whistling for accounts owing them
for services rendered and goods sup
plied in connection with a case which
would never have been admitted to
the city had the local authorities imagined the provincial health people
would act as they have since done. In
any event a recurrence of the experience will be avoided.
Had the province fulfilled its half
promise to turn over the foreshore
west of Ward street to the city limits
to the corporation, the latest dispute
as to liability would not have arisen.
Last fall the application for the foreshore rights was made to the lands
and works department and it was understood that the matter was so far
adjusted that only the execution of
the necessary documents remained tu
complete the transfer. Since J then,
however, nothing has been done, nor
can the eity authorities succeed in inducing the government to take any
action in the direction to put an end
to the squatter nuisance along the
shore. This matter is rapidly assuming serious proportions and in event
of fever spreading among the squatters the health of the city is certain
to be very seriously menaced. The
persons living along the shore use the
water from the lake, a dangerous
practice ut all times and particularly
at this time when the water is at low
mark. All the sewage from the
shacks ia dumped in the lake and deposited along the bhore, a decidedly
unsanitary condition of affairs. The
city and the C. P. R. have joined
hands to move the squatters from
their respective lands, but all action
is blocked because the government
will not take notice of the various
communications addressed to the department on the subject.

ANSWERS k QUESTION.

Journal.
"I consider coffee as it is usually
made In the American family���strong
and from the pure bean���an injuiious
drink, especially   for   nervous people
No doubt the student to whom you
refer can study better after taking a
cup of coffee, but the new energy is
caused by a stimulant, the effects of
which will soon wear off, leaving
him lower in nervous force.
That is the reason he has headache
and feels so miserable when he
without coffee. If it Is only the hot
drinu he requires why not take a
cup of clear hot water or a cup of
Cereal Coffee."
Mrs. Borer is one of the most eminent authorities on food in America.
Sbe knows that Americans go on
day by day using food and drink
that sap their vitality instead of
building it up, and it requires argument oft repeated to   wake   them   up.
Broken wrecks of humanity stumbling along, unable to carry out
tbeir cherished plans, aro all about
us and their physical weakness is
nearly always due to improper food
and drink. Coffee is a skilled destroyer of nervous strength. I'ostum
Food Coffee Is a delicious food drink
made from selected parts of cereals
that yield the elements Nature demands fur rebuilding the . .issue  all over the Im."-:- body,
If it has ever been served to you
In a weak, unpalatable drink, have
it made over again and use two spoons
to each cup and know that the actual
boiling continues full 1.1 minutes.
Our worij for it, tbe Postum Coffee is
(Nlfolous when properly made.
QOFF.BDBNfl MATCH-
The Bpoimue Review of yesterday
says: Charley Goff, of Waver lev, who
was knocked' out by Ed. Bums in
their fight at Rossland, March 20, is
to have a chance to get back at his
conqueror and to pull off the much
talked of retuin match. The Nelson
Athletic club has offered to undertake
the responsibility of the mill and
last night sent the following telegram
to Al Onken of the Couer d'Alene theater. "Nelson, B, C. offers Goff MOO
or $250 gnaiantce, win or lose. Money
in bank." No date is assigned for
tho fight and it is up to Al Onkento
make arrangements with Goff. The
opinion of sporting men of Spokane is
that Goff will take up the offer
quickly. He is in the city having come
in from Wavcrley yesterday, and
will make a decision today.
CHAMBER SITTINGS-
Yesterday's sitting of tlie supreme
court chambers before His Honor

WEDDED LAIST EVENING���
A pretty wedding was celebrated
last night by Rev. J. Burtt Morgan,
pastor of the Baptist church, when
Miss Ella Hurry, a popilar young
lady and the daughter of the late
George Hurry, of North River, Prince
Edward Island, was united in marriage to   Arthur   A. Pitchford, who rc-
 f1-- jrtned   the   police fornfl as   pa-
...,j,:in after a year .ervic. as driver in the fire department. The happy
eve.t took place at the cosy home on
Mill street, east of Stanley, where the
couple will take up their residence.
A small party of friends witnessed
the event. The bride was attired in
white, wore a tulle veil and carried
roses. She was accompanied by Miss
May Cnmmings, who was also tastefully attired. The groom was supported by H. Huny, a biother of the
bride. After the ceremony the gnests
were entertained at supper and a
pleasant evening wa3 spent. A wide
circle of friends will join The Miner in
extending hearty congratulations to
Mr. and Mrs.  Pitchford.
A GREAT SALE-
As announced in today's Miner, Mr.
A. Ferland of this city has decided to
close out his dry goods, clothing and
men's furnishing business in this
city and leave for tha east some time
during the summer. He has for sale
everything he owns in British Columbia, the goods in his store here, his
home in Nelson and considerable property in Slocan City. In addition to
this he has property in Everett,Wash.,
which is also on the market. During
the past few days he has disposed of
the opera house in Slocan City and a
house and two lots in Everett. Mr.
Ferland came to British Columbia in
1884 and has been doing business in
this province ever since that time. He
established himself in business in
Nelson four years ago. This year
marks his twentieth year in the mercantile business and he has concluded
thnt he has done his share and will
settle down in his old eastern home
for the remainder of his life. He will
continue the clearing sale, which is
announced today, until his stock is
all gone.
ALBANI'S TOUR���
A very large, delighted, and appreciative audience was present last
evening at Orpheus hall to listen to
Madame Album and her concert company, which, with all due respect to
other similar combinations, was with
out question one of the best that has
every visitedj Halifax, says the Hali
fax News. The ever-popular diva
was in excellent voice, her noble organ still retaining much of its old
time power, sweetness and flexibility
which, after considering tbe vast
amount of exacting work it has been
called upon to do, for twenty years
is almost marvelous. That Madame
Albani is still in possssion of such
grand vocal powers proves that her
early training was of the correct kind
and that great care has been exercised
in the use of it; that art and nature
have been, and still are, in perfeot
sympathy and harmony with each
other. All Madame Albani's mini
bers were faultlessly rendered, and
met with spontaneous appreciation
It is Bafe to say that a more delighted
audience generally has never left
Orpheus hall. Manager Clarke is to
be congratulated on being able to.get
such an excellent combination to con
sent to sing in Halifax.
