Old Boxes, Barrels and Rubbish of All
Sorts Should Be Removed, and a Gen-
eral Gleaning-lip Inaugurated
With the disappearance of the
snow and ice, and the near approach of warm weather, a word
concerning the cleaning up of the
winter's accumulation of rubbish
will not be out of place.
It should not be necessary for
the health officer to personally notify each individual resident of the
importance of performing what is
his plain duty in this connection,
but every one should begin the
work of removing from their premises all deposits of dirt and filth
which have been made during the
past winter.
Essington has been singularly
favored in her freedom from epidemics of infectious diseases, and
should be kept in sueh a condition
that will insure immunity from a
visitation the coming summer such
as Nanaimo is now grappling with.
In addition to absolute cleanliness being necessary from a sanitary point of view, it is equally important as a safeguard against fire.
The old boxes, barrels, etc., in the
rear of residences and store buildings are a standing menace to the
safety of the town; for, should a
fire occur, they would greatly facilitate the spreading of the flames.
An hour or two put in each day
at the work of cleaning up around
the yards and in the rear of business houses would soon effect a
wonderful transformation in the
present conditions.
fused to grant. After being idle
nearly two weeks the men have
been promised $3.00 a day if they
will return to work, but���the contractors will raise the price of board
proportionately. ,
This is a concession with a vengeance, and as the men are not plumb
"locoed" they failed to look upon
the offer with any degree of hilarious   enthusiasm.    They  are  still
holding the fort.

Last week Albert Ross, who has
charge of the building of culverts
for Contractor Neil Keith, lost
about 1500 feet of lumber which
was carried away by the high tide.
The stuff was coralled by some Indians, and is now being held by
them in a slough near Smith's Island. The Indians have set the
price for the release of the lumber
at so stiff a figure that Constable
Jones has been delegated to visit
them and try to effect a compromise if possible. He will leave for

that, being poor in purse, the men

Train Robber Took From the Wealthy Class
and Gave to Those Who Were Less Fa=
vored by Fortune's Freaks
In tho house of commons, says a
dispatch from Ottawa, all papers
connected with the escape of Bill
Miner, the train robber, from the
penitentiary at New Westminster
in 1907, have been tabled. It appears that Col. Sherwood, commissioner of the dominion police, reported to the minister of justice
that he had information from a reliable source that Miner escaped,
not through a hole under tho fence,
but through the gate.
Col. Sherwood then recommended
increasing the reward for Miner's
capture from $500 to $1000, but
the minister turned this down on
the report of the investigation of
Inspector Dawson.
Rev. Mr. Owen, chaplain, testified that Miner said to him: "I do
not consider it a crime to lift money
from rich corporations.   It is not     The North Coast Commercial Co,
a crime;   it is   not a sin.    (hi the1 Ltd.   have their   new spring   hats
contrary, 1 feel it to be my duty to  and caps in
lift money from rich corporations
and give it to  the poor.    Many a
mortgage on a   poor man's home I
have helped to pay with money I
have taken from rich corporations.
I am what I  am, and I have done
what I have  done,   but I can look
God  and   man   in   the   face unashamed."
As the result of a return brought
down tpday, Mr. Taylor of New
Westminster will renew his application for an inquiry into the escape at an early date.
Why Bobby Wept
Little Bobby had been scraping
the snow from the sidewalk for an
hour, when the minister in passing
found him weeping as though his
heart would break.
"What's the trouble, my little
man?" asked the minister.
"Booho!" sobbed Bobby, "bad
tramp came along and stole the
snow shovel  from boy next door."
"Well, my lad, it's nice to be so
sympathetic, but you must not bo
worried too much over other people's affairs."
"Oh, it isn't that, sir. I'm mad
'cause he didn't   take my shovel."
Proposition |s Made to Bore a Hole Ten
Miles Deep Into the Earth and Utilize the
Heat Obtained as Substitute for Fuel
Sir William Ramsay, the famous
English chemist, who fears exhaustion of the coal supply within 500
or (iOO years, says: "We may ex.
pect that within not more than 200
years, or even Jess, the high price
of coal will render tho conditions
of living very difficult.
"The available water power of
Europe is estimated not to exceed
2,000,000 horsepower; it is probable that England alone uses 100,-
000,000 horsepower today,
"The use of tides has been suggested, but the capital cost and the
danger of destruction by storms
render the idea chimerical,
"In hot countries engines are run
by solar heat, but even granting
that such a process could be applied in England���whore sunshine
is too ran���the cost of apparatus
and danger from destruction place
that source of energy out of the
"Another alternative is to supply
heat in the form of steam, by
drilling a hole in the earth's crust
at least ton miles deep.
"Such a project has been considered from a practical standpoint
by tho Hon. Charles Parsons of
turbine fame, and his verdict is
that the execution of the project
would cost $25,000,000 and take 80
"The question of export duty on
coal at once suggests itself, with a
