 IV  !^'      APR 241007 j!  VICTORIA, ^��^'  GREENWOOD, B. C, FRIDAY, APRIL 19,  1907  NADEN IN THE HOUSE  Stands Up for the Peoples'  Rights  BEAUTIFYING THE GROUNDS.  AGAINST    A    MAJORITY  Ready to Do the Premier's Bidding  Regardless of the Wrongs  Perpetrate-?.  Men's and Boys'  Furnishings  We have decided to clear out our entire stock  of Men's and Boys' Furnishings, to accomplish our end quickly, we will reduce our  prices on-these lines, to less than manufacturers prices.    Don't- miss this  opportunity  of  purchasing first  ciass goods at'discounts vary- -  ing from  Thirty to Sixty Per Cent.

OUR  SPECIALTY IS WATCH REPAIRING.  ��MR WORK IS GHARANTBEB  A.'L0GAN & C��9  Copper Street Greenwood  Call and see them.  W. ELSON  That Mr. Naden, our representative in. the local legislature,  would not see his district's rights  invaded or neglected without protest, eyen if he stood alone, was  to be expected of the man, and  we were prepared to read in thej  coast papers that during the f  Budget debate he stood up valor-  ously for the interests of those  who had elected him as their representative. '  When the. question of road  grants came .up and be saw the  small appropriation for his riding'-compared with that giveu  to districts returning government  supporters, he took occasion to  vcice his sentiments very frankly.  We quote from the Victoria  Times: -  G. R. ��� Naden said while he  could congratulate the .province  upon its vast resources he' could  not congratulate it upon its government.' A good government  should be fair in its appropriations.. , He was astonished to-hear  the minister stand without a  blush and say that the needs of  the province had been carefully  gone over in making the appropriations. ' Had the minister been  honest he would have said, "we  won out and we are going to take  the rewards." Only one Liberal  constituency in the ��� large list of  increases had got an increase.  While he congratulated Mr.  Shatford in getting what he did,  he thought he should have tried  to get something for his neighing constituency��� Greenwood.  Mr. Shatford ' said the , small  farmers of his district were satisfied. ' Mr. Naden said that the  small farmers in Similkameen  had been able to get far more on  roads in front of their homes  than they ever paid to the treasury, It was a ' well known fact  that there were farmers who could  get all they wanted for roads in  Similkameen, but nothing for the  roads on the Greenwood side.  He outlined some of the work  required on the roads. In two  miles.on the road between Greenwood and Midway there were  seven railway crossings. The  road should be altered. He believed the railway company, when  constructing the line', should have  been compelled to build the wagon road. That was not done, but  it was dangerous to leave the  road as it was.  After specifying more needs  for his riding, he referred to the  Skeena constituency. He said he  had spent several months in that  district last summer, having carried a pack over the mountains.  Thisjiew _regio_n_ was an_empire  "iiTitself. He had seen minerals  in that country never equalled in  the southern part of the province.  Fifteen years ago the government of the country was better  alive to the interests of the country than the present government.  A road-had been, built from Penticton to Grand Forks at a cost  of perhaps $150,000 or $175,000.  Yet in Skeena, which was far  more important, there was not a  single road.  He agreed with Mr. Oliver  that the lands of the country  should be reserved for the actual  settlers. There had been a lot  of speculation there. When he  was there it was almost impossible, within a distance which required about six weeks, to communicate by mail with Port Simpson, to find any desirable agricultural land which had not been  taken up by South African scrip  or otherwise.  Before the premier left for the  foot of the throne to plead for  better terms, he should deal justly  witk the districts which had been  unfairly dealt with. He did not  see how the premier could go and  ask for what he claimed was justice for British Columbia, and yet  deal unjustly with.parts of the  province. He would rather be a  member of the opposition, however, and plead or demand justice  than be a member of the government side and defend the injustice  proposed. ,,  He moved the adjournment of  the debate.  Father Bedard is setting- an example  in the community that  might well  be  emulated by others, in  the  matter of  beautifying-  the   grounds   around  his  chapel and parsonage.    The site occupied by these institutions and  the Sisters' hospital is by far the most beautiful in the   valley,   commanding- as  it  does, a view of the entire town.    But  to   natural,   'the   reverend   gentleman  seeks to add artificial beauty.    Quietly  he is engaged on the  work  he  has  in  view, the   making, of an arid  bench  into a place   of green   shrubbery  and  flowering plants.    He  is not trying to  make wild land   burst   into  beauty in  one season, but is content with a somewhat slower or surer scheme.    Slowly,  but surely, the spade is reclaiming the  plateau east  of   Church   street.   The  stumps are coming out*, the soil  is  be  ing enriched, trees are being  planted,  and some   day   the   entire block   surrounding hospital, chapel and residence  will be attractive and  refreshing  in a  district where trees are not apparently  appreciated. ;  Added to the instincts of his race for  flowers and shrubbery, Father Bedard  has the patience to work toward an end  that it may take years to realize.  A BIG CELEBRATION  The Citizens of Greenwood  Decide  No. m%>  ���MEN WANTED  TO   CELEBRATE   MAY  24  A Lonjr List of Sports to Be Arranged  and Bi�� Purses to Be Hun-? Up  May 24th and 25th.  WHO OUGHT TO PAY?  The citizens of the 6mall towns of  Washington west of us, Chesaw, Mol-  soa, Oroville, Nighthawk, Loomis and  Concouully, are chafing oyer their mail  being delayed several days by the action of the Great Northern railway.  This roai runs from Midway to Molson through Canadian territory, but  the Canadian postoffice' department  properly refuses to pay for hauling  mail originating in the United Stages  and destined for.United States points,  merely because for convenience the  road runs' for a distance through Canada, while the United States department refuses to pay for mail carried  through a foreign country. Meantime  the mails are carried to Republic and  despatched from there hy stage line.  ACCIDENT ON C. P. R.  Hesitate about giving explcnations  unless you are asked for them. Apologies oftea are ���mistaken for confession!!  of wrong.  Accidents of a serious nature ' are so  rare on the'Canadian Pacific that when  one does occur it not only excites surprise, but a thrill of horror runs from  ocean to ocean. Wnat would appear a  serious accident on many of the American lines, becomes a calamity on the  Canadian road, v One oc the worst  wrecks ever known in Canada took  place near Chapleau station on the 10th  inst., in which IS lives were lost and  many injured.  According to an official statement,  the train was running at the usual  speed, about 22 miles west of Chapleau.  It was the regular transcontinental  train , which left Montreal Tuesday  morning- The train was partly derailed by a broken raili The cars ran  down an embankment and caught fire,  presumably from the cooking range.  It is believed that most of the dead  were occupants of the tourist car and  were pinned down iu the wreckage, and  were either killed outright or cremated,  as the fire consumed the wreckage.  BECOMING A FRUIT COUNTRY  That the fruit growing .industry is  becoming a recognized fact in British  Columbia is evident by the trend of the  debate in the local legislature over the  question of irrigation. . In his speech  thereon, Representative Ellison is reported as producing "great yellow and  redapples" quite "approaching the size  of an infant's head.  "These apples are bringing S3 a box  in "Victoria today. But I care not  whether they are apples or figs, or  turnips, if they can bring $3 a box, is  it not a good and a safe investment?"  '"If my honorable friend is privileged  to make this exhibit, may I not produce  an exhibit of coal," put in the member  for Nanaimo.   (Laughter.)  And a little later the apples went  back in the desk, perhaps for the premier's 'lunch basket' to London."  Similkameen's representative said:  "If the premier will call a summer ses-1  sion I will promise an exhibit here of  the finest peaches in the world, and  enough to go all round; and we can  grow more than peaches. Similkameen  has thousands of acres of the finest  fruit lands in the world."  Mr. McGowan of Vancouver, in a  compliment to Price Ellison upon his  able speech upon the subject of irrigation, strongly supported the government's policy, saying:  "Not long ago I stood under a cherry  tree in Okanagan which in one year  yielded SlOO."  Mr. Ellison���"We have one that  yielded S150."  Mr. McGowan���"Then I hope thi3  summer to stand under that and eat  its fruit."   (Laughter.)  Greenwood has decided to have  a celebration this year. For several years now it has kept in the  back-ground and has given its  patronag-e to Midway, Phoenix  and Grand Forks, but it has decided to play host itself this year  and asks its neighbors to drop in  and see us.   .  A mass meeting- of the citizens  was held in the City hall Tuesday evening to consider the matter, and the decision was reached  to hold a two-days' event May  24 th and-25th.  Mayor Bunting presided at the  meeting and submitted the matter, which was heartily taken up  by those present. About $2,000  is in sight for prizes and purses,  and the amusements will be many  and varied.  There will be a baseball tournament, horse races, rock drilling  contests, hose races and small  sports..  The committee named to take  charge of the' entire affair was  Messrs. Bunting, Hallett, McKenzie, Pair, Thomas, Roy, Car-  tier, Cameron, Wellwood, Wilson,  McAllister and Redpath.  Mayor Bunting was chosen  permanent chairman, A. H. Hallett secretary, and Kenneth McKenzie treasurer.  The ball grounds will be put  in first-class shape for the tournament, in which it is expected several fast teams will participate,  and about $300 will be* appropriated to this branch of sports.  Tbe citizens of Greenwood do  not believe that the'ir long inact-.  ivity in public events of this kind I  will prevent.the-town from doing  itself proud "on this occasion, and  take this early opportunity to  promise two days of good. sport  to all who come, and to ask the  villages, towns and country districts all around to make May  24th and 25th dates for a visit to  Greenwood.  The B. C. Copper Co. is asking for  more men . They can use 75 more at  Deadwood and 25 at Summit Camp.  Fhe management claims that in order  to hold its men it has been compelled  to agree to permit them to work two  Sundays out of each month. No one  will be compelled to work, but they  who so desire may work every other  Sunday. The men claim that other  camps allow them, to, and if they can  not do so here they will go elsewhere.  Of course there are many others who  feel the necessity of the Sunday's rest  and will not work here or anywhere on  that day.  AN  EARLY  BLAZE  NOW MANAGER THOMAS  Mr. W. C. Thomas, who has been  smelter superintendent at the Dominion Copper company's plant for some  time lias been promoted to entire  charge of the company's affairs, both  raining aud smelling. Mr, Thomas is  not only a competent man of affairs,  but is very popular with the employees.  LORD'S DAY ACT  In a Small Laundry on Silver Street  CLAIMED THREE VICTIMS  Who Died in a Fruitless Effort to Escape the Merciless Fury  of the Flames.  In accordance with the request of the  Lord's Day Alliance, Rev. M, D. McKee preached a sermon in the Presbv*  terian church Sunday evening last on  the observance of the Sabbath day.  The discourse was unequivocally in  favor of one day's rest in seven in  response to man's physical needs and.  in obedience to the law of God, The  sermon was temperate in tone, but  definite in statement.  PAY ORE COLUMN  The Bay is looking well and the own-  srs are feeling jubilant.  Work is. temporarily suspended on  the Tip Top pending installation of aa  electric hoist which the management  expects to have ready early in May.  . Work is being rushed on the install*  ation of the 20 h. p. electric hoist on  the Moreen. An electric compressor  for the property comes next.  At a point about 100 feet west of the  shaft, and on the 200 foot level, the  ledge has been struck on the Greyhound.  The Freemont is giving evidence of  What was a most disastrous  fire to those most closely interested, occurred on Monday morning last,   shortly  after 1 o'clock.  A small building, opposite the  Alberta hotel, on Silver street,  owned by the Stooke Bros., and  occupied as a Chinese laundry,  was the scene of the fire.  The alarm was turned in from  the bridge box, at Greenwood.and  Gold streets, about twenty minutes past one, and in three minutes the department was* at the  fire. ,  The first eyewitnesses of the  fire claim that when the alarm  was given the entire front was on  fire and burning fiercely. The  origin of the fire is shrouded in  doubt.  The inmates were sleeping upstairs, and the stove was in the  back part of the building down  stairs.  We are unwilling to believe the.  fire was of incendiary origin, but  it certainly looks, like it. The  inmates of the building,,numbering three, all slept upstairs, and  evidently made a rush to save  their lives. Their bodies were  all found at the foot of the stair,  where they had evidently perished, rather from suffocation,  than fire, as the bodies were not  burned beyond recognition. A  narrow stairway led from the upstairs to the rear of the ground  floor. At the foot of the stairs  a door communicated with the'  back part of the building, little  damaged by fire. This door  opened inward, and the rush for  it and from tbe fl.ames appears to  have been, the plan.   But whether  ^ _.     __w^.    *~.y.   ��/JU.U.

AMENDMENT TO LAND LAW  The chief commissioner has brought  down a bill to amend the land act by  abolishing the classification of third-  class land, which has been heretofore  sold at one dollar per acre. Hereafter  there will be first-class land at five  dollars per acre, and second-class at  two and a half dollars.  Another amendment to the land law  provides an increase of royalty from 50  cents to 75 cents per thousand on Ium  ber.

One of them was that of Quong  Wong Hop, who ran the laundry,  one Fool Keo, a domestic servant,  for several years in the family of  W. T. Hunter, and one "Jim" a  janitor about town.  During the early forenoon the  mayor ordered men to clean up  the place and rescue the bodies,  which were removed to the  morgue, where Coroner Black  held an inquest at 2 o'clock the  same afternoon.  We are not fully advised what  the city's powers are in the.premises, but we believe them absolute, and think that it ought to  exercise some discretionary power  in the matter of allowing build-  ings, constructedas"this"~was,~to~~  be tenanted. A similar disaster  is likely to occur again. Rudely  constructed, densely tenanted,  and with no adequate means of  hurried escape, many of the Chinese tenants are a menace to the  city aud life.

The system to be projected will be  the equal of the present Hill lines in  the states.  Winnipeg will be the headquarters  and vast terminals are being secured,  or have been purchased, in Winnipeg,  Minneapolis, Chicago, Vancouver and  Seattle.  Winnipeg, Brandon, Regina, Edmonton, Prince Albert and the Peace River  valley will be ultimately covered by the  Hill system.  Thirty surveyors are now getting  plans readyior the Canadian field.  Five hundred men in the jjMinnesota  woods have been getting out ties for  the lines on'this side of the border all  the winter.  Huge contracts for steel rails, equipment and general supplies have been  made in readiness j'or the projected  Canadian -system of the Great Northern.        ���  Don't be a coward.

We do not mean  the advertisement of Greenwood  alone, but of the entire district,  Greenwood, Boundary Creek, the  Kettle River valley and the West  Fork.  Here are resources���mineral,  agricultural, horticultural possibilities���so far very modestly  heralded to the world. Here is a  climate certainly unexcelled in  the west, of which we seem so  enamored ourselves that we hesitate to divide it with the heat-  pestered east or the rain-burdened  west.  Here capital may lind in a dozen  localities an opportunity for  profitable investment in mining;  here labor may find in as many  places choice chances to make a  home, where seasons are reliable,  soil indulgent and the climate  friendly. Within a day's ride of  Greenwood, in all the numerous  valleys of the district, are thousands of acres of land suitable  for irrigation, and only awaiting  the hand of industry to make  them productive.    Dependent as  Most of the newspapers of  British Columbia show a great  improvement lately, the result,  doubtless, of improved times, for  after all, a newspaper is largely  what its advertisers make it.  A MOTHER'S MESSAGE TO  MOTHERS  Harry K. Thaw, who will,  doubtless, be tried the second time  for the murder of Stanford White,  may not be electrocuted in the  end, but he certainly got a good  grilling.         '  We quote elsewhere one of our  favorite poems of the late Dr.  Drummond, who was buried the  other clay to the noise of a multitude's lamentations, "Little Ba-  teese" has the genuine home-love  flavor of the French-Canadian  about it.  Lord Ciiari.es Bekesford was  guilty of a very witty remark  when he told a New York interviewer that being on full pay in  the admiralty, he could not talk,  but that if he were on half-pay,  he would be glad to tell all he  knew, and more too.  What Zam-Buk Did for Her Child.  "If this statement is the means of  leading- some mother to introduce Zam-  Buk to her home, I shall be very glad."  So says Mrs. K. Watkins, of 26 Forgue  avenue, Montreal, aud continues: "My  boy, Walter, aged 9, while attending  school, contracted some sores. These  tspread, and became so bad that some  of them on the heel and ankle made it  almost impossible for hini to walk. I  used various ointments, but the sores  persisted. One day Zam-Buk was  recommended, and we got a supply. It  seemed to take the soreness ont of the  place to which il was applied right  away, and the wounds began -to heal.  In about a week's time the sores,which  had defied other treatment, were completely healed, and there is now not a  trace of sore on his.body! I believe  Zam-Buk to be the best balm ever produced."  "When a mother runs on to the delicate  skin of children a balm or salve, she  needs to be as careful as if she were  givining a child an internal remedy.  Zam-Buk is pure���free from all animal  fat and all "mineral mattsr, and may be  applied with wonderful benefit even to  the skin of young babes. Zam-Buk  heals sores; cures eczema, spring skin  eruptions,, ulcers, ringworm,* itch, barber's rash, blood poison, bad leg, salt  rheum, abrasions, abscesses, cuts,  burns, seals and all skin injuries and  diseases.

Conscious that less generous  soil and less generous climate  elsewhere afford men the conditions of home-making, we seem  to shrink from commending what  our country is to those looking  for betterment.  Low grade mining appears to  be incompatible with high grade  public spirit. If men choose of  their own volition to wander., into  the district, we make them welcome, but we do very little to parade our privileges to the public.  The stranger lauds our climate  and we merely listen. He speaks  highly of our mining and we  shrug our shoulders. He descants on the beauty of Kettle  river and the fertile lands along  it, and we express our fears of  frosts or something worse. We  decline to enthuse, we don't like  to lift ever so little, and as for  boosting, that is out of our line.  All along the line communities  in the west are marching on to  better things. Here we seem content to rest on the efforts of a few  millionaire corporations, and they  would never have remained had  the words of the critic and the  pessamist been considered a few  years ago.  When the big ore bodies were  being opened the criticism was  that the value was too low. When  the high-grades were first being  openeAvJie^ei^jwere too narrow  or didn't go down,: and when  Norris and Meyerhoff and Bubar  and others began the cultivation  of fruit, why, it was folly.  First the critics, said the ores  were too low for profitable mining, and then when that was disproved, and men begaa to talk  range and ranch, and orchard,  the same critic exclaimed ���'folly,"  this is nothing but a mining  country.  Grand Forks alone of the en-  tire district appears to be altve to  its possibilities. It talks Grand  Forks and the surrounding valley  because it believes in itself.   .  We seem to be ready to apologize for being on earth, and affect  a conscientiousness which forbids  an effort to induce" peoplg to cast  their lot with us. We are too  modest or too indifferent.  We need a tonic of some kind,  or, better still, a blood purifier,  for certainly this thing has become chronic with us.  We would like to see Greenwood and the district west unite  in some kind of an effort to get  our resources before our own people, and then to get the same before the outside public.  When once a strike occurs:m  the coal mines both sides to the  controversy will set about finding  means of settlement. Why not  do it. before the strike occurs?-  We think capital'is frequently to  biame in that it defers action until a case becomes chronic and  more difficult of treatment.  There is a constant conservation and circulation going on iri  nature. Nothing is ever destroyed.  One form may be changed into  another, but it is never lost. Can  it be possible that this law fails  when it comes to deal with the  human mind?  According to Coroner Black's  interpretation of the law, an inquest can be. held on only one  death at a time. Three inquests  and three verdicts appear necessary when the three victims of a  disaster die at the same time  practically, In the same way and  from the same cause.  Somebody was sulky or sullen,  or stupid, or the impending coal  strike would have settled long  ago. It seems absurd that leaders among the employers or the  employees may, ,by obstinacy,  prejudice public welfare. Whose  was the fault that something was  not done during that long confer-  ence?  New Brunswick, always to the  front in the cause of education,  and-aealous-for-the welfare of-its  teachers, has decided to increase  the salaries of teachers of all  classes. The increase is to.: become effective upon the first payment of the increased subsidies  and is to be graduated according  to the length of service of the  teachers.  Of course Harriman won't disgorge the millions he made out  of the. wreck cf the Chicago &  Alton. Some men make money  by taking hold of second-hand  goods and by application of intelligence thereon, make them look  like new, Harriman makes  money by getting hold of first-  class things, and by application  jof his art, making them look like  30 cents with the discount off.

Stead was addressing the New York Conference of the Methodist church  recently, oh the subject of peace  among the nations, he must have  startled some of his pious hearers, who applauded his lofty sentiments, by fervent "Amens,"  when he exclaimed "nobody cares  a damn for your 'amens' unless  you do something." The conference thanked the English visitor  for his address, and -more  "Amens" were doubtless registered, but Stead plainly told them  he would prefer action to either.

England,  it is reported, will help Spain in the  reconstruction of her fleet, and Spain  will sec to it that certain important  naval positions do not fall into the  hands of any other power.  May Starve Paris���"Paris starved  out,"-is the amiable prospect announced  for May 1, or thereabouts, by the  alarmists. According to them all the  uniousof foodstuff trades are combining to strike a great blow in favor of  a weekly day of rest, the law for -which  is not yet even fully carried out. The  unions are supposed to number 180 aud  to represent 10,000 workers, and just  what will prove to be the ending of  this queer strike it-is difficult to pre-  dict- '  A most liberal pension system for  railroad men has just been put into  force by the Atchison, Topeka & Santa  Fc Railway company. Thirty thousand employees have been made happy  by it, for they all look forward to being  retired on a fair competence if they  live to the age of 65.  Unlike most of the systems adopted  by other railroads, this is so graded  that the poorest paid employees get,  proportionately, the largest pensions,  and the high salaried men cannot get  more than S7S a month.  There are considerable more than  500,000 persons eligible to benefit by  the various schemes upon attaining the  prescribed age, and the appropriations  made annually by the various railroads  for pension purposes reach an aggregate of approximately $1,500,000.

' The famine in China assumes alarming proportions. Ten million persons  are suffering from inadequate supplies  of food, and 3,000,000 are nearing  starvation. The members of the committee at the front report that they  find the bodies of sufferers bloated and  that their faces turn -green or black as  the result of starvation'. The people  are pulling up the growing crops for  food. Whole families have been found  dead in their houses and corpses are  seen lying by the roadside. Probably  5,000 persons are dying daily from  starvation. A few cases of rioting for  food have occurred and cannibalism is  beginning to be resoited to. Newly  made graves have been rifled of the  bodies, and parents are exhuming their  children to be ��� eaten. A dollar, the  committee reports, will save one life  until harvest, June 27, and 51,000,000 is  needed, The whole amount cannot be  raised in China. The situation is desperate, and Americans are urged to  give $3,000,000 in the next three weeks,  not for Christianity, but for humanity.  It is suggested that it would be best to  cable money to . the American consul,  James Rogers, as supplies can be purchased in Shanghai.

A NEW BRAND  During one of his many campaigns,  "Private" John Allen stopped at a  cross-roads store. While he was exchanging news with the proprietor, an  old darkey from one of the plantations  came in. When his purchase of "midd-  lin' an' meal" had been wrapped up,  he started out. At the door he paused.  "Got enny cheese, boss?" he asked.  "Why, yes," said the clerk, pointing  to a freshly opened can of axle grease  on the counter.    "Box just opened."  The darkey looked at it hungrily.  "How much?" he asked.  "Give it to him for 10 cents and throw  in the crackers," said Mr. Allen.  "All right," said the clerk, filling a  bag with crackers.    "Here you are."  The darkey laid a greasy dime on the  counter, picked up the box and the bag,  and going out, seated himself in the  shade of a cotton bale. When he'had  finished the crackers he ran his finger  around the box and gave it a good long  lick. In a few moments he put on his  hat and started for his mule. As he  passed the store Mr. Allen hailed him.  "Well, Jerry, what did you think of  that lunch?"  The old darkey scratched his head,  then he said: "I tell you de truf, Mars  John, dem crackers wuz all right, but  dat wuz de ransomest cheese I uver et!"  COULD NOT BE MISTAKEN  Mr. George McNichol, of Montreal,  formerly private secretary to Mr.  Frank W. Morse, general manager of  the Grand Trunk Pacific railway, who  was recently- appointed ,purchasing-  age'nt for the G. T. P. on the coast,  arrived in the city on Sunday. He will  open au office and take up his residence  here shortly. Other G. T. P. officials,  at present iu Vancouver, are Messrs.  C. A. Schrieber, Geo. M. Osborne and  W. H. Toby, members of the engineering staff of the company. Their  presence is due to the fact that surveying aud clearing of the Prince Rupert  townsite has been discontinued for the  time being.  A report is current in the city to the  effect that the Grand Trunk Pacific  never actually intended to lay out a  townsite on the land bought from the  government, but that the pretence of  doing so was made while endeavoring  to secure from the Dominiou government the lands within the Indian reserve. The refusal of the British Columbia government to give up their  revisionary rights in the land aud the  order issued by the provincial constables for the company to desist from  the driving of piles in the vicinity of  the reserve, is stated to be the real  reason for the withdrawing of practically all of the G. T. P. surveying  force from the townsite.  Mr. D. H. Hays, secretary of the B.C.  Tie & Timber company, who returned  from Prince Rupert, reports that his  company's mill, recently put into operation there, is running at about half  capacity. He does not know whether  or not the niuch-talked-of new hotel  will be built at Prince Rupert this summer or not. The Canadian Bank of  ���Commerce still maintains a branch at  Prince Rupert and the Bank of Montreal will shortly open an office there.  ���News Advertiser.  The attention of the smoke room  company on a Liverpool Atlantic liner  was held by an assertive Chicagoan  reconteur, whose tale full of insiduous  hits at denizens of New York, created  much laughter.

"Haow?" questioned the former  speaker.  ' "Sat close to you at lunch atul noticed  you ax'ut."  "Huh! my ax't?" exclaimed the man  from the porcine city. " Why, first day  aboard I grubbed entirely by myself,  and spoke nary a word to a soul."  "Jes so," rejoined the other, "but I  could hear you ealin pie."  Today and today make the morrows.

CHINESE FUNERAL  When it came to burying their unfortunate countrymen who perished in  Monday morning's fire, the best that  Gulley & Co. had in the way of funeral  trappings was none too good for the  members of the local Chinese colony.  The remains, prepared in the best manner possible, reposed in nice caskets.  Into each coffin was placed proper  credentials for presentation to the  right parties at the entrance to the  Chinaman's paradise. On Wednesday  afternoon, at 4 o'clock, the three caskets were conveyed to Chinatown. On  arrival there they wete placed side by  side on a platform erected in the street-  under a white awning, and were draped  in red and white. Beside the platform  was a large table laden with roast  chicken, fruit and confections. When  everything was prepared, the tapers  lit and incense burning, the friends  took leave of the departed by kneeling  and salaaming. No tears were shed,  no excitement shown, and instead of  crape badges the mourners wore red  and white ribbons. The ceremony  over, the fowl and fruit were distributed among three shining new tin  pans, and these were sent to the cemetery to be placed on the graves. The  friends., appeared���to���have��� forgotten  nothing for the comfort of the dead,  chopsticks and tea pot, and teacups  going into the pans.

The first warm days of spring bring  with them a desire to get out aud enjoy  the exhilerating air and sunshine.  Children that have been housed up all  winter are brought out and you wonder  where they all came from. The heavy  winter clothing is thrown aside and  many shed their flannels. Then a cold  wave comes and people say that grip is  epidemic. Colds at this season are  even more dangerous thau in midwinter, as ihere is much more danger  of pneumonia.
