Whole lot on the road today."
It should not be overlooked that this
merited success in any opera depends
in no small degree on the stage management. Dr. ('has. II. Matthison, as
official stage manager, has watched
each detail so carefully that the severest critic could not find any instance where lack of attention'war

theatrical family, Dr. Matthison cornea

Inadvertently overlooked. Mr. Kil-
glano has a true and most sympathetic
tenor voice. Kach word was sung
with active intelligence and his hearers expressed delight, especially when
lie sang iu the "farewell" trio.
Let It be noted that the part of Sir
Richard Cholmondeley. lieutenant of
the tower, taken by H. O. Cuomlw .va .
by no means a minor part. In hand
some costume, and soldierly bearing,
lie was indeed a principal of renown in
all his appearances in song and story.

added admirably to the character portrayed.
A. E. Alderdlc ' can without doubt
be called the "star" of each performance, His work was exceptionally
effective and of a kind that established him a true artist in the mind's
of everyone who heard iiim. This is
not all-���by any means. Because, the
people of this city should know that
Mr, Alderdice got a "bunch of fellows"
in his room last November and fathered the whole scheme to ils present
fruition and no monetary value can
ever be placed on the sacrifice and efforts he has so unreservedly given.

banquet and dance was Indulged in by

Mexican flags. He informed Oeneral
Huerta that the United States would
insist on a liberal compliance with
the original demand of Rear Admiral
Mayo, made on April 9, in a written
communication to General Zaragoza
immediately after the arrest of American blue-jacke's at Tampico.
The Washington government informed Huerta that bis wish for simultaneous firing of thc salutes wa*
untenable and that as demanded by-
Rear Admiral Mayo, a salute of 21
guns would be insisted upon, the
manner of returning the salute to be
left to the American admiral who
hud agreed to fire one to the Mexican
flag. Naval precedent showed no
"Simultaneous salute" had ever been
fired in apology for an offence.

this view and not the least of these are the announcements made yesterday morning that fresh industrial operations are to start in five different directions in and
around this city.
New Westminster always has prided itself upon its
payroll and, in comparison with other industrial centres,
this has kept up remarkably well during the time of financial stringency which has just passed. It is therefore
with no little satisfaction that note is made of intention
to increase that payroll and the announcement that fresh
industries are opening here and that others which have
been closed are resuming business comes as a positive indication that businss conditions generally are on the upgrade once more.
William  Ewart Gladstone was the

expounding the annual budget or government appropriations, writes a London correspondent Winston Spencer
Churchill has done the same thing for
tiie naval estimates. The first lord
of the ftdmiralty compelled the housi
of commons to listen for two and a
half hours while he gave a review of
the latest achievements in naval science so interesting that even the "Little Navy" men kept their seats to the
Battle between great modern iron
dads the first lord described as |
"more like a battle between two egg i
shells striking each other with ham-
mors" than two men In armor striking
at each other with heavy swords. "The
offensive power of modern battleships
is out of proportion to their defen
sive power. Never was the disproportion so marked. In the light of that
illustration the awful importance of

Britain Leads in Flying.
Mr. Churchill believes that the British navy leads the world in flying.
His personal exploits in that direction have been criticized as foolhardy
for one of his position. He promised
to give his fellow members a unique
exhibition   later  in   the    session     bj
Nobody who has followed the Wilson watchful waiting policy with regard to Mexico can have doubted that
Huerta, head of the de facto government of that repub-.. .   .       ,
i. ,    , . i a r, . ....     ,        .',,       bringing a tleet of airships over tli*

Washington administration in order to see just how far wl" take il kindly," he remarked, ���
he could go in ignoring the prestige of the United States.
Also, it has been plain that if and when the American government assumed a more determined attitude the dictator at Mexico City must back down or be destroyed by his
own obstinacy.
This is just what has occurred. Wilson may or may
not have been waiting for what he considered a favorable
opportunity to change his attitude towards Mexico, but
at any rate the opportunity presented itself and Wilson
accepted the chance.
The only particular difference in the situation as it
now exists and as it existed prior to the Tampico incident
is that the United States has forced respect for its administration and policy, not only on Huerta, but on Carranza
and Villa as well. Huerta has lost nothing, principally because he has had very little to lose. He has gained nothing, I
save the information that Uncle Sam cannot he trifled
with beyond a certain point.
The solution of the whole Mexican problem seems as ES^^^W dSSd��
far off as ever, but it is plain that the longer chaos rules
in the Spanish-American republic the less chance that republic has of settling its affairs itself. Private interests
cannot afford sometimes to wait on governments, especially when the government view does not coincide with
their own, and it would not come as a surprise to see some
corporation agent deliberately precipitating a crisis which
would terminate in the armed American intervention for
which some of the big interests have been hoping.

The admiralty now possesses fifteen airships, ten of which are large

Attached to the flying service altogether are 125 officers and 500 men.
and he predicted that the numbers
would reach ISO officers and 1,400 or
1.500 men before the end of the year.
When he came to the admiralty, two
and a half years ago, there were nine
machines. Five stations have been
equipped along the coast with full arrangements for housing machines and
quarters for officers and men, and two
more  are   under  construction.

Supplies therefore, the first lord's explanations were noteworthy, principally fnr what be refused to say.
The government maintains the great
est secrecy concerning the location of
tiie' oil reserves as well as the sources
of supply. Tiie sum of $7.50(1,11110 was
asked as an appropriation for the oil
reserves, but the first lord explained
that with the cost of tanks and pipe
lines to deliver oil at the jetties much
more is being spent.

i know whether the Mexican Kagle com*

j head,  was  among  the  favored  ones.
The first lord quoted a memorandum
from the royal commission which in
vestlgated the question of oil fuel, as*
sorting that secrecy  regarding naval
supplies was necessary.    He refused
to give the names of contractors, and
would only say that Mexico Is one of

Harlem Tommy Gets a Chance at Californian But is
Outpointed All thc Way���Champion Leads in Seventeen Rounds, Two Drawn and One to Murphy.
San Francisco, April 17. Outpointing his man practically all the way,
hut lacking the strength to administer
a knockout, Champion Willie Ritchie
successfully defended his lightweight
title against Harlem Tommy Murphy
tonight, the battle going the entire distance of 20 rounds. At the expiration of the score of rounds there was
little else for Referee <: riff in to do hut
to raise Ititchle's hands denoting the
Murphy's indomitable fighting spirit
was  marvellous   to  the  crowd   which
was tin- largest ever assembled in the
Eighth   street   arena.     Outpointed   at
long range* fighting. Murphy tried his j
hand close In, hut all to no avail, the
Californian hammering    blows    that I
would   have   downed     any     ordinary I
Murphy got the better in one round
only, taking the eighth by a shade. In
two otters, the seventh anil the nth
the' battle was even.
The 2<Uh was a hummer from start
to finish, being as follows;
Th'j men shook hands smilingly and
then went at each other with the ferocity of  panthers.    Ritchie  drove his
man against the ropes, smothering him
wllh lefts und rights and every assort
nii'iii of punches on the jaw, head and
body. The champion did all the fighting and found no difficulty in landing. Murphy, however, always came
back lull of fitnt. A right cross almost floored .\iu.-phy, and his mouth
bled profusely as the champion smashed away at his face and body. Murphy
went to the floor from a right punch
and almost through Die ropes, but
came back with spirit, little ruffled,
lie was groggy, however, and Ritchie
i flayed him on the jaw and body until
| the bell ended the round and fight.
; Referee Griffin tiuickiy raised Kit-
rhle's right hand and proclaimed him
the winner, amid great cheering.

Kelowna, April 17.���The opera
douse  last  Monday   was  packed   to
overflowing to witness tiie initial performance of the Orchard  Players, a I
company, who for the most part, were]
prominent actors and actresses in the
old  country,  but  who  are  now  fruit
ranchers    in    the    Kelowna district.
Never in  the history of local  drama
baa  such   a   masterly    Interpretation j
been given.   In presenting T. \V. Rob-!
ertson's    charming    creation. "David!
Garrlck," the "Players" were afforded
hill scope for their histrionic ability,;
and at the conclusion of the play they j
reei Ived a perfect ovation. i
William   Sauter   in   the   title   role!
gave a finished performance.   His en-
actment was excellent throughout, es-1
pecially so in the dinner party scene, I
and In the final act where he points j
out   to  the   impressionable  girl   who
had fallen ln love with him, and who]
he now loves himself, her filial duty
to her father.
Miss Dora Rlgnold scorfd an Instantaneous success in the part of Ada.
Her portrayal was admirable and her
easy grace and charm simply captivated the audience.
As the eccentric old London merchant, Simon Ingot, L. Race Dunrobin
made a decided hit. The subtle humor of the play received excellent interpretation in his hands. A. D.
Soamea as the roistering Squire Chivy
was also equally successful, while the
other members or the company acquitted themselves admirably.
William Seuter, who has been the
guiding spirit of the Orchard Players,
is to be congratulated upon the success of his undertaking, They will
appear in New Westminster on April
80 and May 1,

Wallace. Idaho, April 17. -School
Children are to be kept from attending
public dances in Shoshone county, ac
cording to the policy which has been
adopted by the Rev firant II Wilder,
county probation officer, who says
that the pupils are receiving exceptional advantages from the state at a
great cost and that it Is due the state
that the students apply themselves,
and going to dances twice a week and
keeping late hours is certain to make
them less fit.
The Itev. Mr. Wilder visited the
Wallace schools, and in addressing
both t'i.e high school and the grade
schools he made his position plain to
the Indents, statin- that he was not
and did not want to he narrow mind
e-il on the subject, -but that he would
expect each student to keep his mind
In such a condition that he would be
able to grasp the advantages offered
by the state 1n the sense of an obligation to the state. In lieu of the public dance he assured the students that
any time they wished to have' a pri
vate dance., having only young people
acquainted with each other, he would
not onlv give his permission, but would
be willing to chaperon such an affair.

An Exceptional Occupation For
Women���The Sunshine Lady.
Fellow  of  King's College, Cambridge,
Talks of "Insidious," ii  not Per-
fidioue Tactics.
London, April 17.���Although he Is a
Fellow of King's college, Cambridge, a
clusslcal scholar, archa��ologist, excavator and professor of fine arts, Sir
CbarlU Waldstein yet lakes an active interest In more trivial things
and yesterday delivered a lecture on
Fashion before the Itoyai Society of
Profound scholarship and deep
knowledge of Greek art. and anclant
history have not prevented him from
being an acute observer *>f ihe passing fashions In women's dress and the
habits of society, and he has pursued
his inquiries among the shopkeepers
of Oxford street, the milliners of Dov-
��>r street, the sartorial celebrities of
tho stage, and the fashion centres of
"I warn you," he said, "against the
insidious li not perfidious, tactics of
our domestic enemies. For I have noticed that, though they have not openly ventured upon the introduction of
the hoop skirt or the crinoline In thee
general structure of the gowns themselves, they have in a slig.it and tentative though to my taste hideously
ugly) form introduced lt in principle
as a mere additional ornament ln
some short over-skirts which stand
off from the body hy means of a regular hoop, sometimes embellished in
additional grotesqueness hy dependent ornaments. Perhaps some day
bells or castenets or other musical
Instruments will form part of the;
decorations, and the art theorists attached to our great manufactures
may then say that the beauty of
sound has been added to tiie beauty
of form and color."
The designer, ir.e continued, hypnotised the manufacturer into believing
that an ugly thing was beautiful  (he
could do this still more potently If he
could convince him that it would pay)
the manufacturer practised this suggestion on the merchant, who again
passed it on to the dressmaker, the
dress  maker to her customers, until
the  wives and daughters  hypnotised
their fathers and brothers and friends
and the whole world bowed down to
the golden calf of an eccentric fashion.
"I have been able," he said, "to
trace the origin of the long shapeless*
ly wrinkled evening glove which
women wear, back to its use by a
noted actress who happened to have '
thin and ill-shaped arms, which she
covered by means of these gloves.
"The spread of fashion depends on
the fact that the other classes follow
Che leaders, while the leading classes
are assiduously engaged in fleeing
from the contamination of those they
consider their social Inferiors. I have
been told that year by year the fashionable places for sitting in the park
on summer afternoons changes. The
leading groups have established themselves In one part to meet their
friends, the others follow them, and
this causes the continuous flight and
"The woman of the world, the consort of the leaders of public life, Is no
longer the type that sets the fashion
in deportment and dress. Now it is
the actress and the little modiste."
Sir Charles said that the latest fashions were only worn in Paris itself
by manneeiuins at I,ongchamp and
such places, were worn hy all the rest
of the world in London. Vienna, New
Vork, and  Buenos Ayres.

Dear Elsn-Women who never la

tbe most unexpected occupations. On*
ul the strangest ways of earning ���

acquaintance of mine. Sbe market*
sunshine and good cheer. Did you
know tbat these qualities were being
Well, to tell the story of this girt
from tbe beginning: Several month*
ago. upon tbe death of ber father, tn*
wage earning of tbe family was
thrust upon ber. Sbe had. unfort*-*
nstely. no business training and. as
far as she knew, no business ability.
Kut uecesstty again became tbe mother uf invention. Summing up ber personal assets, sbe found tbat tbey consisted, for tbe most part of a cheerful disposition and a pleasant emit*
8be determined to turn these assets t*
Mer plan was simply to charge a few
for the sunshine and cheerfulness sbe
"Vou know." sbe said to me tbe other iluy, "1 realized tbat there were lots
of people who would pay for being
put Into good spirits. This Is tbe reason why theaters are so successful.
Hut there ure as many more person*
who prefer the quieter forms of
amusement, playing cards or checker*
or even discussing tbe latest fashiom.
What they desire most Is cheerful banian companionship. It was to thee*
people tbat 1 decided to sell my services."
Her decision, from all appearances,
was a wise une. us the sunshine bust-
ness. even In tbis short while. Is ���
flourishing industry, and ber clients all
pay cheerfully fur ber unusual cons-
- Of course her duties are varied, and
to tie a professionally cheerful perso*
is a tax upon one's sense of humor.
This  plucky   girl  tells stories to  Invalid*, cheers up tbe sick, gossips with

Is Indeed a sunsbtne lady.
S|ieuklng ot 111 people, Margaret IX
Is at St E.'s hospital convalescing
from tbe effect of a severe operation
I went to see ber yesterday and found}
ber surrounded by tbe most benutifu*
tleirui offerings from friends. Remarking upon the loveliness of the blossoms brought forth u very pertinent
question from tbe invalid:
���'Why do friends smother an ill per-
eou witb dowers during tbe tirst feir
days of nn Illness, wben sbe is too exhausted even tu look at a bouquet of
flowers,   much   less   to   endure   tbeir
fragrance?     Why   do   tbey   not  save
them   for   tbe   tedious   days   of   convalescence."
It never occurred to me that this is
exactly the way flowers are sent tu tli*
sick. The moment one hears that a
friend haa to undergo an operation ur
is Iii for a siege of fever off one goes
to Ihe florist This duty performed,
there Is probably not a thought of
stunting nny more flowers,
Wouldn't It be much better to wait
le week or two until the tirst rush ot
bouquets Is over nnd until the patient
is in a condition to enjoy flowers before sending them'.' ';
It is too often the case thnt durlns
the first period of illness the flowers
me really nauseating, nnd the only
pleasure the patient gets from them
is to read later the cards of those who
bombarded the sickroom with choice
but really unappreciated offerings.
