their ability to give a presentable

CITY COUNCIL.
The Bachelors' Ball.
Tho Bachelors' Ball on Tuesday

Virginia hall was eiowded; everyone was there. The giddy whirl

when tne dancers dispersed it was
with a regret that the bachelors
did not entertain mora often.
At the City council meeting on
Monday evening a communication
was received from Pierson A Fisher

city council have the same removed.
A communication was received

Although Queen Victoria has not
yet been notified of the fact and is
entirely ignorant of the distubanc*-
that the celebration of her natal day
is causing in the Slocan, three towns
will celebrate her birthday���each
one in spite ot the other. These are
New Denver. Silverton and Kaslo.
New Denver, as will be seen by
referring to the latest C. P. R. maps,
is situated at the mouth of Carpenter
creek, five miles below Three Forks.
It is opposite the Lowery glacier and
adjoining the cemetery. It has __
undertaker who wilt do a live y
business when tbe inhabitants can be
brought to recognize that they have*
been dead since the summer of '91.
Rip Van Winkle is mayor of tlte
town. It can hardly be avoided via
the Nakusp & Slocan and a short
walk down the old Mountain Chief
trail, or by the wagon road from
Three Forks. It is also impossible
to miss the town via Rosebery and
Slocan lake. This route offers n>
distinct advantage over tbe others
that tbe hapless traveller is not precipitated into a trackless woods and
does not arrive in town quite s >
soon.
Silverton, better known as Four
Mile, is said to be only four miles
from New Denver, although it seems
remarkable that the health inspector
should allow these two settlements to
remain in such close proximity. Ir
has four saloons, a large ainoun*. <>(
vitalized air and some eight day
sports without whiskers. Its prim i-
pal industry is waiting for business
to pick up and gazing at the scenery.
The sojourner may escape from the
Silverton precincts bv either of three
routes. Tbe least dangerous is to
proceed straight op the mountain
sides and strike for Sandon. This
involves considerable risk from snow-
slides, but as the next best route
takes one through New Denver and
the other necessitates a swim of eight
miles to Rosebery, the first is the
most preferable route Some people
have even waited for the return boat
without expiring from ennui.
Kaslo is the next station past South
Fork on the K. A S. It baa been
situated in the same place for several
years and can be discovered by proceeding carefully along tbe west
shore of Kootenay lake. Its principal features of interest are its city
council, the flood and fire which it
had six years ago and tbe boom
which it will have "in tbe spring."
It has a closed Comique, a wide-open
license law and red curtains enough
to shook the modesty of a sphinx. Its
inhabitants, of which there are quite
a number, are lineal descendents of

NELSON   TO   NKW   DKNVBR.
The Joint  Commit***  Decides  to Sand
nil Sports to the Lake Town.
It is very evident the New Denver
committee on arrangements for the
24th of May celebration have had their
hands full. The trouble has been that
the teams of Sandon and Nelson have
held off their decision, and it was not
until Tuesday of this week that the matter was finally settled in New Denver's
favor. Here is what the Nelson Miner
says of it:
The chief question which has been
Agitating the minds lately of those who
are fond of athletics has been the destination of the various athletic teams of
Nelson on the Queen's Birthday, the
24th of May. Three of the neighboring
towns have decided to bold celebrations
on that date, namely New Denver, Silverton and Kaslo: and the question has
been to which place shall the Nelson
Baseball, Fire Department, and Lacrosse
teams go. Tbe choice was soon narrowed
down to between New Denver and Silver-
ton but the difficulty of making the
choice was by no means thereby lessened
The friendliest feelings are entertained
towards both these towns by the Nelson
boys, and both offered substantial inducements.
Such being the case, the matter naturally came down to the basis of which
town would make the best offer. Both
were liberal in tbeir offeis, and finally
New Denver promised 9150 for tbe hub
and hub race, f 125 for the baseball match
and the same for the lacrosse match. It
was further represented that the Sandon
reams would compete in the vat ions
sports. Accordingly on Sunday last
representatives of the various Nelson
teams met at the Hume Hotel, and after
thoroughly going into the matter, decided that all three teams would go to New
Denver on the 24th of May. The matter
was for the time considered settled, bur
on Sunday evening delegates both from
New Denver and Silverton appeared and
the matter was te-opened, though oo
rather a different basis.
The Nelson men had promised to go to
New Denver on the Queen's birthday,
and therefore to New Denver they bad to
go. Still, there appeared to be no reason
why they should not go to Silverton also,
if the matter could be arranged. Silver-
ton and New Denver are but four miles
apart, and strong efforts were made ��o
induce the two towns to bring about a
joint celebration, the games to t> held
one day in one town, and the next in the
other. A conference was held on Monday to this end, and another Tneaday.
Unfortunately difficulties presented
themselves as each town naturally wants
to bave its celebration on the 24th. If
Silverton will consent to have its games
on the 25th the difficulties will all be
smoothed over and both Nelson and
Sandon will gladly attend. Otherwise
in view of their promise the Nelson
teams will not be able to visit Silverton
on this occasion. Although contradictory reports are in circulation it appears
to be tolerably certain that the Sandon
teams have decided to cons pete at New
Denver on the 24th.
The Silverton representatives in the
city have refused to accept the two days
celebration proposition but as the Nelson
organizations have finally decided to go
to N'ew Denver on the 24th of Mav it is
probable that Silverton will yet fall into
line by having a celebration on the 25th.
TUB   MOST   DKCXK-M   NATION.
This unenviable distinction is now
given to France, and is sustained by no
leas authority than The Lancet, ranked
as the greatest, most reliable and earful
medical paper in the world
Dr. Brunyon, in The Bulletins' Medical, says: *
"The quantity of alcohol drunk at
Rouen is equal to an average per head
of the population of 17 litters of pure
alcohol. In other centers of the pro.
vince the consumption is even higher, it
amounts, for instance, to  19 liters at
Lrllebonne.   Iu the department of the
Seine Infcrieure-that is. the Havre de*
trict���there is a drink shop for every 67
inhabitants.   ~_e women are also hard
drinkers, and drink is supplied to them
bv the grocer, the green grocer and
even bv the men who tell roast chestnuts  a't  the  corners   p>f  the  streets.
Young women and children refuse to
drink  their  coffee unless  it is mixed
with  brandv.  and  children  begin to
drink  cpdfee when  only  two or three
vears old.   Natural!v the children very
soon ask for the bran ly which they see
their seniors mix with the coffee, and
parents are weak enough to very generally accede to Hip' demand of their
children     The agricultural   laborers
seem to drink   nearly as much a* the
workmen of the towns    Alcoholism is
also verv prevalent among the trading
class, and especially among the goreetl
and cafe proprietors    It is the rule for
commercial travellers in all branches of
trade to drink over each transaction.  A
commercial   traveller  who  refuses t����
drink would not be able to do any busi
ness."
Jules Claretie, th e brilliant Paris
journalist, says that "the ���eeeraJN of
France is alcoholism '" This, he tells us,
not only brings destruction to tbe
drinker,* but transmits the, seeds of insanity and death to the offspring It i*
a significant fact th*t the fifth asylum
for the insane has recently been built
in the Paris district, especially for incurable drunkards
"Frenchmen," savs M Claretie, "are
becoming the maddest alcohol drinkers
in  the  world "    They   consume   per
capita 14 quarts of alcohol.   Owing to
the destruction of the <rra*>e vines by a
parasite, liquor dealers are placing on
the market   various chemical concoctions labeled wine, and these poisonous
drinks  are  rapidly   performing- their
deadly work among all classes of people
Added to this,  the use of absinthe is
becoming alarming prevalent Students
drink it as  their  daily tonic and the
dreadful habit is fastening itielf upon
the hardy fisher folk, the sturdy, robust
Bretons  and   Normans, whose health
and strength is being sapped  by this
crime provoking   demon,  and   who*e
children will  be  heirs to all the ills
derived from drunken parents   Alcohol
costs France a milliard of francs annually, "yet," says ML Claretrc,"nrnhihition
