An old Denverite writes to ua a«
follows: .«'It was with great pleasure
that I noticed in the New Denver Ledge
of this week, ihat a kind paternal government had o.io-'.nore come to ihe rescue
of the most ancient and dullest, town in
the Slocan, and had furnished tl.e sum
of|150 to clean off some of the accumulated moss that hud |*rown there since
the lively times ot tl.e euily 90V, when
New Denver was a place of some standing- The special reason for the expression of pleasure made above, is, that
some strangers may be induced hv t|.e
great and windy promisee made by the
Ledge ami others, to visit the Windy
City on May 24 I., antl if the town presented its usual 'lu.B been' apiu-arui.ee,
i. might reflect discredit on other town*
in the district, from tl.e fsct tl.at tl.e said
strangers might be induced to value New
Denver at its own valuation, vi*. tl.e
priucip.il point in tbe Slocan, antl so
without investigation condemn the other
lo-vns on the strength of what was seen
at New Denver. Hence I am glad that
the place is to be cleuued up Defore
the 24th, even though the goncral public has 'to pay the piper'.
"I am also pleased to note tbat Mr.
Forbes P. C. is in future to be located at
New Denver Of course, I do not know
tho reasons for this action of tl.e government. Surely so quiet a place cannot require a constable to make the citizens
respect the law- Can it be that the
Government wants to prevent the ancient
hurt! from being lost off tl.e map and so
has sent Mr, Forbes there to prevunt the
business men left in the town, from following the majority and taking the.n-

Washington, May 8.—The war department has received a cablegram from General Otis giving the situation in the Philippines, some parts of whicli have been
omitted by the war department in making it public.   The di-patch is as follows:
"'.Manila.—Adjutant General, Washington: The situation is as follows: Lowton
is at Maasin. and lialinag with scouting
parties to the north and east. MaoArthur
is at Sim Fernando. The population of
the country between Manila and northern
points held by troops are returning home

gunboats operating in the rivers have
cleared the country west of MaoArthur of
the insurgents. Signs of the insurgents'

Washington, May 9.—The war department officials seem to be even more encouraged over the condition in Manila.
The report of General Otis today indicates
that tlie American troops are well disposed
lt has been evident that the insurgents
who were operating in the swamps and
jungles east of MacArthur have been very
annoying, but the army gunboats have
made it too hot for them to remain. Law-
ton appears to be pushing northward 15
miles to the eist of MacArthur. The Rio
Grande lies between them, and there the
gunboats evidently are at work. The portions of the di-*patch whicli thc department
has not made public possibly refer to the
future movements of the two divisions of
the army.

Girl   Struck   l.y   I-frht-inff.
During a violent thunder storm recently, lightning struck Sadie Tunic,
a Russian girl, 13 years old, while
standing in Canal street, New York.
The bolt was attracted by thr steel rod
of her umbrella. She was taken to
a hospital, where it was fouud that she
was badly burned about lhe abdomen,
right leg, both wrists, nose and right
cheek and that she was suffering froia
the shock. Radiating downward from
the upper part of the breast were half
a dozen marks seared ln the skin, while
around each thigh and extend ins to
the knee were a series of rings. Around
each wrist, and not unlike a bracelet
tattooed in the skin, w°ro two rings.
Her clothing was untouched For
nearly an hour after her admittance to
the hospital, both her legs were paralyzed, but she recovered the use of
those members. The girl said that she
did not have any pain at any time.
The physicians do not bs'ieve sbs will
recover entirely and were surprised
that she was not killed outright. Canal
street was crowded _t thu lime '.he bolt
descended and there was srent excitement among the people.

In New York a young woman suffering from paralysis of the right arm,
superinduced from holding up her
skirt, was taken to one of the city hospitals Monday. She had been in the
habit of wearing one of the latest tailor
made gowns with a train. This long
skirt paralysis is due to holding the
arm ln one position too long, which,
with the weight of the skirt, affects
the muscles and the nerves. The affliction is similar to that with which
base ball players suffer and which Is
called by them the "glass arm." The
complaint, physicians say, can be cured
by massage treatment, but the arm will
remain weak.

The following letter has beer) sent j
to us, with the request that wo do
what we can to push along the scheme
proposed. We have no hesitation i.n
endorsing the hopes of the writer that
a Slocan Football League will be
formed,    Our correspondent says;
In view of the (act ih.it the towns
uf the Slocan have all oruanized football
clubs, would ii not i.e in tl.e interest of
I lie game to form a Slocan Football
League? Slocan City, Silverton, New
Denver and Sandon clubs could arrange
ii series £of games, which would prove
interesting. The Season is well advanced
ami il anything is to be done in this direction, it should be started at once.
1 would suggest that the secretary oi
the Silverton club should correspond
with the secretaries of lhe clubs mimed
ami if tho idea meets with acceptance, a
secretaries' meeting could be held and ..
schedule of games drawn up. I leave
ihjs for the consideration ol those interested.
Yours truly,
As we stated last week, New
Denver is supported by tho charity of
the Province at large. Professional
beggars, their cries never cease, and
the sop of 9150. thrown them this
week only whet their appetite for more
Our local government hss been badly
affected with the prevailing Imperialistic idea and is anxious to pose as an
assistant of world wide enterprises.
This craving for notoriety tempted the
members of the executive to put a
meddlesome finger into tho Anglo-i
American Oommission l.y si.zing the
season of its session to pass tbe Alien
Exclusion Act, thinking doubtless that
their action would throw the American
commissioners into a state of terror.
A good deal  of. the   blame   for   the
t'-iluro of tbo   CotnmiMto-   U-u    ln-en
attributed to this action of the Legislature.
No* their, efforts aro taking a
d._ere.it turn. They arc vieing with
Great Britain herself in contributing
toward the expense of the Pacific
Cable scheme, A cool million is the
amount tbey are contributing as an
advertisement for the Province This
is one-ninth of the cost of the cable,
and Australia, Canada and Great
Britain aro partners iu tbe enterprise.
The question is, arc w? not paying to
much for our whistle!
In this part of British Columbia,
and wo do not think that tbis section
is any exception to (be rest, tl.e want
of good roads aud trails is retarding
development of the mines. The entire
sum of $15,000,, tbe amount voted for
the Slooan, could be used to advantage
in road building in the immediate
vicinity af Silverton. This amount
spread out from Slocan Crossing to
Arg-'nta will be barely sufficent to
repair the seasons ravages on the road)
already in use and it seems useless to
ask for any farther grant to build new
No great amount of grumbling has
been heard over the smallne-u of this
estimate, those interested believing
that the government was giving all
that could be spared. Now that the
executive has proposed to sink a
million in the Pacific for tbe benefit of
a few coast cities, a different hue is
cast over ths sise of tbe road building
fund of the   Kootenay.
Wo are not con/o.»ant with the
dividend paying qualities of a cable
company, bat we venture to say that
a sum of money equal to that suggested
as our share of the cable laying, invested in roods snd trails throughout the
mining sections of tbe province, woald
return a dividend into the money
chests of tbe province, ten times
irreater th_n that produced by a one-
ninth interest in the Pacific, cable, and
as an advertisement for the Province,
would b»vo a many times more far
reaching effect than, the presence of a
landing station for the American end
of tbo cable, somewhere on the coast
of the Provinoe,
Bn(ith Columbians eon justly be
a-ked to contribute their share of the
Dominion subsidy, bat a Dominion as
well as a Provincial tax comes high.
