BOARD OF TRADE  OFFICERS ELECTED  The Annual Meeting of theBoard  Was Held in Mr,  Stewart's  office Thursday Last  Aii Address Given by the Retiring President/Reviewing the  Last Years' Work  The annual meetrng of the Be.aid  of- Trade was held in the ollice oi  John Stewart '<>n Thursday evening,  Kith inst., vat eight o' clock. 'Ihere  was a good turn out of members, the  principal business being the -election  of officers for the ensuing jear, who  are as follows;: Presidtnt,. W. A.  CornwaHy vice-president1, j lonald  Nicholson; sec-treasurer,' Robt-rt Allan; (re-elected).  P.efore thc selection took,place, Retiring President John Stewart jcad  the following address, giving a summary of the Board's work during the  past year:  Gentlemen���������It -will  be appropriate,  this evening to r ��������� lew 1he work accomplished by this Board during tho  -year just ended, and the progress our  town has made.    First, and foremost  I ina>\     say - that since our  genei al  meeting, our town has been incor-o-  rated  and we. now  ha e a cooperate  body  to whom we can present    our  needs.     Almost at the commencement  of the present- session we opened negotiations with thp Dominion'government through     our member,  Ralph  Smith,   Esq.,  M.P., for the erection  of     a public wharf and  government  buildings, and 1 maj^say. that if you  will'refer"to_the minutes: you     will  see     again.and again that we have  kept  up  this agitation.    Our efforts  in  this  direction have  beeni fruitful  . inasmuch as the wharf is already constructed, and although not yet completed,  we feel satisfied  that     this  will be an "accomplished fact at  an  early date.   The same may he said of  the government buildings.      ._,._..  This Board has kept up a live agitation for direct communication with ce"ves a less expensive article,  Vancouver, and we now fully believe  that this will be granted us. The  Canadian Pacific Railway Company,  who have now come into our midst,  have been'interviewed on this' subject and  they are willing to extend  to us any facilities, they reasonably ja,*dress, and also for the work ac-  can. We havenlso taken up the mat- cqmplishcd by the Board during his  ter of terminal rates  for this city,   j term of ollice.  and although we are not on exactly  the same footing as other and older  cities,   we have ��������� secured  a ���������bi-weekly  car from Vancouver.   The matter, of  the establishment of direct steamer  communication  with Mexico has had  our     support, and I have no doubt  that     good will result to our City  from' this' vsnture.  Wc have advocated the establishment ol'.an electric light plant, and-  if we have not been successful so far,  it has not been from any relaxation  of tf.brI on our part. We have been  largely instrumental in securing recognition from the Royal Humane Society "of the bravery of a- locaj lad in  saving life,, and demonstration of  this will ;be given in the opera licuse  on Saturdayi night, ,the 18th inst.  Since our last annual meeting* we  have adder! sev3rat*members to    our  roll and T have every reason to   believe; that thc coining .year will     be  still  more  prosperous.    The session  just ended has been a very pleasant  one; all have acted in unison ami harmony. Iu- . an     organization-Of this  kind there is one. member on whom  the great bulk of the work fails.    I  refer to thc secretary."; As,:far as the  Board is concerned,*^ tha tj\ member has  been - diligent ;'i*M'<y%we^iY'pv!iJb'\y. his  duties, anil if he can sbe.-ind need -jlto;  accept, ollice ;for another term     tlie  Board     will be fortunate. ��������� In order  that the Board should have the confidence'    of the "community, and the  support it deser.es, our aim and object should,   l>e to make all understand that .we are'not an organization   whcrefdpm   the  mem tiers  alone  reap some benefit.   By the reduction  of freight, rates,  the consumer      re-  and  by co-operation we are able to.     secure for our town concessions and ad-  tan'tages  which otherwise  we could  not."

McClurc.  The following is the press report  from Vancouver-  A writ     was issued out of the supreme    court     at "the instance of J.  C. McLagan, Jr., oldest son of     the  .late J. C. McLagan, for a number of  years editor of the World news* apcr.  ��������� According     to the     official papers  filed at the     court house, the suit is  between John Campbell McLagan, jr.  as plaintiff,    on one side, and on the  other Mrs.     Sara Ann McLagan and  Frederick Soues Maclure,   "executrix  and executor,  respectively, of a pretended    will of the late John Campbell     McLagan,     deceased, and  said  Sara Ann McLagan,  defendants."  Endorsed     on the back of the writ  is the following:  "The plaintiff claims to he of the  next-of-kin and one of the heiis ot  Joh-nCa-mp-bcll McLagan, late of the  city, of Vancouver, in the province  of British Columbia, deceased, who  died on the 10th day of April, A.

However, the government  were induced to remove the duty, for  although in the alteration in the tariff, fuel oil was not mentioned, the  specific grade was such that fuel oil  came under--that head.*. Perhaps the  omission of the words ' 'fuel oil' in  the provision removing the duty may  have caused the matter to be overlooked at the time, but in any case  it has given the coal mines of British Columbia a serious competitor  at home in the fuel business.  "Already as a result of the tariff  change we have lost several profitable customers, one of whom (-special'  ly was a large purchaser of coal.  Now they are using oil insl cad for  fuel purposes, aud we, June <o find  some other market for.the coal."  Mr. Stockett pointed" out that ihe  tariff could be so worked as to admit crude oil free for refining, but  not, for fuel purposes. There could 'be  Jio ob'jccMoiit6"UTa������,*~but he considered, in view, of the large number  of men employed in the coal industry and the great importance it was  to the province, that the boards' of  trade and - the business men could  very properly take the matter up and  make representations to Ottawa upon the subject. As it was now, it  meant' that the coal mining industry  was being, injured for the bener.t of  the owners of oil wells and the workmen in-California.  ��������� ''.'*  At the present time, Mr. Stockett  remarked, the Western Fuel Company's mines; were working steadier  than any others on the coast with  the exception of Comox.

The   hall was well  filled with an appreciative audience,  and   the     bandsmen    are highly de-  lighled with the result of the affair,  ihe band     treasury having benefitted  substantially  by the proceeds.     ,.  The programme contained some excellent items, and the members of the  band are to be congratulated upon  getting together in one evening such  a large number of talented artists.  The chairman, Dr. F. S. Reynolds,  made a few remarks complimentary  to thc band, dressed as they were for  the first time in their new uniforms,  and congratulating the cily on having a thoroughly well organized lot  of musicians that were a credit to  any cily, but especially to one of the  size of Ladysmith.  Thc selections     by the   band were  beautifully     rendered.   As  the result  of much practice this'popular organization gets better and better as time  goes on.   The playing has noticeably  improved since     the public last had  the pleasure of hearing it.   Altogeth  er four     selections were given. They  all were much appreciated, and    Mr.  Whitcombe,     the conductor, is -to be  congratulated     upon the efficiency of  the musicians,  which, without doubt  is largely ���������due to'his capable training.  Little* Miss Ross danced tlie highland iling perfectly, and was enthusiastically recalled, and the hornpipe  performed by Mr. Howe was well  worthy of the applause it received.  Mrs. C. Thompson sang "Ora Pro  Nobis" most creditably, while tho  songs rendered by Miss Clay aiid  Mrs. Lancaster were good. The  sword drill, by Mr. Tilhie, was well  done and most interesting?. .In fact,  it was one of tflie best numbers on  tin programme. Mr. A. Gould was  heard at his best, and that is saying a lot. His rich voice sounded  well in the rendering of Davy Jones,  and he was certainly deserving of the  encore he received. Messrs. Picup,  Bay he and White were in fine voice  and their songs* were much appreciated.  Mrs. Watson discharged the duties  of accompanist in her usual brilliant  style, her splendid playing eliciting  much praise from thc audience.

It  was understood that upwards of two  hundred persons were at work in the  departments,    near the- boiler room,  and the     first indications were that  hardly one could have ascaped.

Halifax., N.S., March 20���������Senator  Church is dangerously ill at his home  at Lunenburg, and the doctors have  slight hopes of his recovery.  Tonight the moving.pictures at the  Opera House will, if as good as the  press reports state, be well worth  seeing. The manager claims to have  the latest and best up-to-date show  of thc kind and that the pictures are  natural and life-like. The following  press notices are a few reproduced  from the papers published in the  towns where Mr. Miller has given his  entertainment:  "Ordinarily we do not expect to  see much, that is new at a moving  picture show���������if you have seen one,  you-'have j seen all���������but Miller's Won-  ���������derlahd'-is the exception to the ordinary.  "Last Thursday evening Mr. Miller gave a performance, before a  very good house, and the entertainment was fully up to "what Mr. Miller had promised. Thc pictures were  clear, and the vibration, usually so  noticeable in moving pictures, is so  well controlled by a device of Mr.  Miller's own invention that you  scarcely notice it at all. The selections were good. Mr. Miller carries so much film with him that he  is enabled to give an audience a  wide range of subjects, and can  please all who"attend.���������The Blaine  Reporter,   Blaine,  Washington.  "A large and appreciative audience  attended Miller's Wonderland at the  Opera House Wednesday night. The  performance was first class in every  particular, consisting of moving pic  tures which were exhibited with  great faithfulness. Worthy of special mention were the coronation  procession in London, a Spanish'bullfights and the championship contest between Jeffries and Fitzsim-  mons. The various roi'nds in the  latter battle were depicted with  startling realism; 'every move and  blow of the lighters could be plainly  seen, culminating with Jeffries' right  swing that puts Fitz down mil out.  Another interesting feature, appealing especially to the young people,  was the representation of Uncle  Tom's Cabin. The pictures throughout were excellent. Mr. Miller deserves to be congratulated for provid.  ing so attractive and interesting a  performance.���������News Gazette, Grand  Forks, B.C.

THURSDAY,  MARCH 20,   1905.
There is     throughout     all -Canada
considerable talk alio lit a 'Mormon invasion,  and    "many people     seem to
have become considerably alarmed 'at
the prospects, of ' seeing,Mormon Elders marching-    in    state across the
line, with excess bag-gage in ,the way
or one to a  dozen extra wives.    No
one at all     familiar with conditions
as they now are    will have any such
fears.   'The    plural     wife question i.s
settled in the     states, ���jvcn,"in Salt
J.alic City itself and while it is not
impossible to find some traces of the
old    conditions     that obtained when
IJrigliam    Young-     was alive and'-in
command,    polygamy is a name only
in Utah.   The death blow'to Mormon
institutions,     so far     as ths plural
wife is conccrncdwas administered in
188H    at tho     City elections in Salt
���Lake.   The     writer. happened to be
spending..a few days iii������ the beautiful
-. Mormon ci ty at the time and became
familiar     with  conditions    existing.
There was that season a great influx
.of land "speculator's.  It was after the
rfireat Superior    City boom, and the
Los  Angeles-.boom, ��� in both of which
places     great fortunes wore made by
booming tlie cities     .selected by the
manipulators.   Salt      Lake,     it was
supposed''iii' the spring of 1889, would
come next../There was a great fight
on  against .the Mormon city government, each side parading the stresls
with hands and long torch light processions':-; filling the -;  streets. ���-Thd
Mormon  processions  were noticeably
thc     largest,    /but quiet     enquiries
showed  how the 'wind blew.   A-cluh
man of     w.hojn the writer obtained
some information said, "Yes, I am a
Mormon, and with hundreds of oilier
young     fellows parade each night in
the Mormon    ranks, but election day
I,  and hundreds     of others liLe-.mc,
will vote  the     Gentile,   ticket.   We
know that we are booked tor a boom
and if the Gentiles win we can. make
all kinds of     money,  if they ilose we
continue as Ave are.''
Election day resulted in a decisive
Gentile victory. There have been few
plural marriages since among
the younger population, and the older "Smiths" arc about gone. Tho
female population,' Mormon though
they may be, are not tolerant of
polygamy. Canada may have no
tears, even if some household does
contain more than one woman, for at
this day and age of the world so few
���women are satisfied with less than a
whole house of her own..that one
wife is found to be all the ordinary
man can afford, and be sure if there
are wealthy Mormons who wish to
try, despite the law, to maintain
more than one household, they will
go south from Salt Lake City instead o.f north. Plurality or wives
will never again he a live question in
even  Utah itself, although there are
no doubt a ^J^i1;0*1^"!1^.1^^���
���breakers there, ~ but for Canada to
get excited over thc question is simply nonsense.

There was a certain fascination in
.sitting by the side of a man who
was.over a hundred years old, and
who had been in public '.lire for almost threc-qiuarters of a century,
while he told of some of the events
wliich passed before him in the midsl
of lhe longest public service of any
man  in  the 'world.
The  interest   was heightened  by lhe
fact that this.     man,   Senator David
Work,  of Fredericlon,  New Brunswick
was in  the rull  possession of his faculties,  as nimble of wit as one could
wish; as    clear of thought, as cogent
in reasoning, as     forceful in the presentation oT a fact as a. man of fifty.
When Napoleon     was at thc height
of his power   this man was a boy of
ten, and  he     was seventeen years of
age, able, as he put it, to do the full
day's work of a   man,  when'the Lit-^
tie Corporal lay dead at St. Helena.
He lememibers \i\idly the battle of
Waterloo, and is full of incidents surrounding the c\cnts as the news of
it came filtering into his far-away
home m the north of Ireland.
All his    liie he had been  temperate
in his w a>s.   '���When 1  was a young

seem to do me any good, and it did

so I stopped it and haven'tuscd any

Gwendolen Evans, a Welsh heiress,  reputed to have a fortune in her own  right.of ������180,000, ($,900,00), was mar  ricd a few *w<*eks ago to Lieutenant  Griffith Eversham, of one of the royal fusileer regiments, by a horse wedding, and the wedding is the sensation of the year.  There was no reason why Gwendo-  lan should hot have married)ihe lieii-  tenantj She was an orphan anl of  - age. Young Eversham was eligible  in every way, and not a fortune, hunter, for his parents . are wealthy.  They, too, had loved each other devotedly for three years, and Gwendo-  lan's guardian, her tn le, and -Eversham 's parents appro\cd the match,  mmmm there is more pretty maiden  The sensation in the match, however, was in the ceremony, attending  it, for Gwendolan insisted on having  a "horse" wedding.  No one     in London    society knew  what a ''horse     wedding" was, and  ���������when the rumor began to circulate in  town and country hoi ses that Gwendolan Evans -,*.-��������������� s to i������ married at a  horse     wedding     there were uncertain ' little gasps     of astonishment,  among     maids     and    matrons.   The  words, "horse wedding" suggested, a  tho   li&ht of    smoking torches, with  dusky faced     maidens and     swarthy  faced men dancing *pn the greensward  to the wild   music of the Hungarian  forests,. '  styled "seek outs",     placed thcmsel-   been   heurd in     Wales for a hundred  ves on either side of the closed door.-years'.  There they began their lyric measure J    Finally,. Lieut.,  Evanson,  with his  and poured     out praises of the bride  and her family, invited her .forth, _de-  scribed the     beauty of th3 morning,  then.   extemporized     by turns  until  their     subject     and their rythmical  powers were exhausted.  At     last   thc    doo*r unclosed and  Gwendolan     Evans,     the bride, appeared,     trembling and blushing, accompanied by her uncle.   Noisy con-  grUtulations followed, then thc swiftest . horse     was .  chosen.   T1j3 uncle  bride seated  on  the  pillion, of     his  racing horse, dashed inlo tbo village  and drew up-at the village inn. The  bride   : and her bridesmaids smoothed  thsir,    ruffled   garments     before the  looking-glass;     the bride-groom and  his,   men     refreshed themselves with  drafts of ale.   Before hulf past eleven o'clock a    uTocession was "formed  The lovers preceded, arm in arm, every Jack* chose his Jill and followed.  Blushing-, tittering, coquetting, they  mounted, the bride was lifted on the | took their     way to church in pairs.  Not lor p, hundred years had a  horse wedding been celebrated in'  W-jles, and it was not strange, therefore, that society people were be-  wi.dered * by the invitations to go to  Gwendolan's country seat-jn Wales to  witness the ceremony.  The national spirit was strong in  the breast of John Evans. - -He would  have none but Welsh tenants on his  lands and in his villages. He encour  aged his tenants to keep alive Welsh  traditions, Welsh music, Welsh cus-  tomes, Welsh memories.  Gwendolan Evans was old John Ev  all's only child, ajid she inherited his  wealth, as well as his national spirit. She lived part of tlie season in  England, of course, where fche was a  petted guest in tjie great houses in  Carlton' square and other great, fashionable thoroughfares of London. She  was invited to most of the great  house parties in' the country-  'When' she promised' Lieutenant  Griffith Eversham she pnly stipulated,  that they should have a "horse wed  pillion behind him. The bridal party  followed,' 'consisting of men', women  and children. They clattered through  tli3 yard, and from 50 to HO hoises  galloped aftei\ the bride. \  "On some neighboring hilltop, and-  at about the same .time, the bridegroom . and a similar company, left  his abode, he riding the best horse  that he could command.  Then   began the race for the bride.  Gwendolan Evans and her uncle were  ever  foremost,   ��������� ��������� the' bridegroom, and*  his party    behind, but alkrode as if  for    their     lives'.   It, was' dangerous  wedding pastime.   Sometimes four or  five abreast,     sometimes huddled together by the    dozen ������*/' score, sometimes    -sTngle,     they galloped on.  There was no time for lovemaking, or  gossip.   Their     hearts were in'their  horses.   It     was furious riding, and  llu \.c*.:icn     were as energetic as the  men,    perhaps     more so.   They 'ride  well.   A Welsh woman and her horse  Hscem     one���������it is difficult to separate  them     in     these bridal rail's-   Even  rain and     mud did not appall them.  Many colored shawls, pink and. White  The old people and children followed  less regularly. The London guests  joined the string wh0 had not joined  the race, and a goodly string it was.  Shopkeepers were at their doors,  their wives in the windows, spectators everywhere. Jests flew and kind  ly -feelings prevailed.     /"  ���������The-ceremony was duly performed  in -the old parish church and there  was no doubt about the wedding. All  those valiant horsemen and horsewomen certified it and strcngtlhened  the Gordian knot. The young men  and, maidens took the privilege}of a  kiss, nothing loath, and after the usual singing .the procession reformed.  ��������� That-evening the guests returned to  London and, Lieutmnnt Eversham and  his'bride     started for the continent,  Why do you smile?

Ladysmith was again victorious ai  football yesterday, .beating the Victoria West team in a friendly gaim.  by 'I"goals toi. The play was fairly- interesting during the first half,  when the con-test was nio re ������ven than  in the second half of the game. Tlu  La'dysmt-h men were in pretty good  form although their play was at  tiines not so good as that in the  match with Nanaimo of the preceding Sunday. The visitors piayed  well in the first half of the game,  and with fairly good combination,  but in the second portion; "they fell  lb pieces, and-the home players had  pretty much   their  own way:���������' *���������  The game was perhaps a trifle dis  appointing- The Ladysmith pcopli  had expected to seethe visitors plaj'  in a more sportsmanlike manner than  was the case. Although the foul*  given by the referee were very few  in number, it was apparent to tlu  spectators that one or two of tin-  visitors were not playing altogether  in a gentlemanly manner, especially  towards the end of the game when  had it, not have been for the timely  interference of a number of the spectators, a fight would have ensued  between one of the capital players  and a)Ladysmith man, the visitor  losing his temper and making an at  tack on    the home player.  At tiie conclusion of the first hair,  the score stood 2���������1 in favor of Ladysmith. In this part of the game  the work of both teams was a I  times very pretty, the home forwards playingi good comlijnal ion,  the Victoria backs and custodian put  up a hard, strong game.  Ladysmith scored first, sending th'.-  ball through with a neat shot from  the extreme right. After the first  goal, the visitors played hard, and  repeatedly niii.de. furious rushes which  were checked by lhe solid home  backs.  The Victorians scored tli-air first  and only point alter a hard fight  in the neighborhood of the Ladysmitli goal. After Ibis, I'nc leatin-r  was kept chiefly af the visitors'  goal, and shortly before Ilie half-  time   whistle  was  sounded, sent   over  Whenever the football game' became  sl0w     yesterday afternoon, the monotony was     considerably relic*.od by  a certain gentleman, wearing a gieen  sweater and   a piece of green ribbon  oii his     coat,     who    walked up and  down the.���������'.',, line with a pocket handkerchief   in his hand,   The gentlemiin  in question  was apparently Horn  tlu  capital     city,     and seemed  to tlnnk  that because    Ladysmith i.s a mining  camp it is   impossible for the peop'e  fo know     anything     about football.  Whenever     the     home playeis eithir  scored or took     the ball away from  the     visitors,(  whicli indeed, "was;a  irequent     occurrence)   the. gen tlcnian  .lidiit     like it, and invariably turned  w the spectators and declared it..was  j. foul'play.   Tie was of course llatl  Jontradicted by people along the line.,  and on several occasions  a  hot argument ensued .The gentleman in     the  ,rcen    sweater was repeatedly asked  to' stale his reason for declaring- the  neat work of     the home     boys* foul  ;day, and .as     is usual- with l^*-h who  do such a     lot of talking he was utterly, incapable of explaining himself,  and was continually .������������������"cornered" -by  the smart repartee of ihe-bystanders.  Me, ������������������'������������������however,- ���������   -must be given  credit  for -his   ability -in getting in his las.t  vvord, for when getting too mixed to  say anything    approaching  the sensible,  lie would   move away; shouting  .is he went,  in a deep,  fearful  voice,.;  .hat no doubt was 'calculated to make  .is   listei-ors.'   ���������tremble,   '''Only'-, wail)'  .-ait till  next  Saturday. -That s. the  Jnie you: Ladysmith people will know  t..
