Although  ;��������������������������� ���������  all the    -members   of  the committee  were not present,  a number of them  being out. oi  town,  a very considerable  amount  of  business, wasstteans-  acted.     Upon a motion by Mr. Thorn  ley,   seconded  by ��������� Mr.   Fraser,      the  ' minutes of the last meeting were adopted as read  Mr.  H.   Foicimmer  rose on a ques-  ���������tion    of     privilege.   Since   the    last  meeting certain parties, he said, had  been     spread ing    a     report   that he  had . made  a statement at  the     last  meeting   lo   the eft'eel that the commit lee   wcre independent  of  any   financial    assistance, from  the miners,  and     whether  or  not  they   obtained  subscriptions from  the miners,      the  sports could be: curried  out.       Mr.  Forciinmer     strongly   denied  having  made     such  statements,   and .defied  anyone present to prove that he had.  Nothing had been  further  froiii     his  thoughts,    lie   was   a business   man,  " and like other business men in   " the  city   was  to a     large extent, dependent  on   the  miners.   He   was  proud  to   include     among  his   best  friends  underground   employees   at   the   Extension  mines." Whoever  spread    the  report Ihat  he had made such state-  miu,s as above,   were uttering deli Iterate and  malicious  falsehoods.     Ile  did not altogether blame the public  for listening  to thc reports for they  were-not all 'at the committee meeting.    Wherever  the  report emanated  from,  it must'have been a i member  of  the    committee,   and  he   trusted  that  they  would now' make it their  business, to contradict all such statements. It seemed  to "him  that business men were     made a target of in  matters like this, ,aiuLhe. strongly objected ,lp it.   "iivh-' Koicimmer concluded-his  remarks amidst apiausc..

Had   the  people  responded  to  the call  for a public  meeting  by'    the committee,-the committee  would have urged upon them  the advisability  of using the surplus     for  this  purpose.   Hut.a public meeting  could not be got last year, so they  had been obliged to bank the money.  At.   the same time,  had the  public  wished  the money in  hand used for  ibis  purpose,  why did   not someone .  make a movement to  that effect at  the  meeting a couple of weeks ago? .

Residents  on  First  Avenue  also     heard     the  shout and jumped  from their     beds and peeped through''  windows,   doubtless expecting  to find  that the,citizens had broken into open revolution     and to see the troops  massacreingl,   Ihenr     without   mercy.  One man  who     sleeps rather heavily  explained  the experience as follows:  "I have been thinking seriously the  last few days of petitioning- the City  Council to have the sidewalk in front  of my homo repaired. Last night I  ! dreamed that I and a number of unfriends had drawn up an elaborately  worded petition and that a delegation headed by a certain -noble citizen had gone to the city hall to endeavor to gain  ally and not all at once and I presume thai by being -.wakened suddenly I got Kind of miM'd and thought  ���������that what had taken place in my  divniii was really true. I rushed to  tin wii.d.iiv, still probably half asleep  ;.n I saw what I thought in my confusion the police charging the petitioners down the hill. Remembering  what hapiened in St. Petersburg on  one occasion when the people made _.  petition I reached down to assist my  friends and found to my astonishment that what 1 thought to nc the  Cossacks were only harmless firemen  moving hastily to extinguish a fire.  1 went back to bed.

I     That  announcement   by   a   stylishly  dressed woman at the desk of the Albany   hotel    office    startled   William  " Maher, one of the proprietors, who was  . standing at the counter.  ������������������     "What is  the  trouble?"  asked Mr.  Maher when he recovered his voice.  I   - "The room is rilled with electricity,"  replied the woman.   "If i'-walk across  the floor and touch my face with my  hand there is a snap, and if I touch  the iron bed I get a shock.   Why, kind  sir,   it's  awful!    Everything   I   touch  _ snaps!   You might think I was some  [.electrical    freak, and    belonged   with,  some show.   But I am not.   Honest. I  never knew before that my system was  electrified."  "Where Is your home?" asked Mr.  Maher. \  "San Francisco," replied the woman.  "I thought you, were from the sea  level,"  said Mr.   Maher.     "You have  nothing to  fear.     The  room  is not  charged   with   electricity.     There   is  nothing wrong with the telephone or  electric light wires.   You see, madam, |  that you are not acclimated in Denver.  The air here is extremely dry and is  therefore surcharged with  electricity.  so  that, you in touching iron feel a  Blight shock, and also a slight shock  when you walkacross tlie carpet and  then touch anything with your hand  or shake hanUs with anybody.    You'll  get over it in a few days."  Tha  woman  went  away  mystified,  but satisfied, and Mr. Maher said:  "That's a common; complaint in every hotel In town.;  Those of us who  live here will now and then feel an  electric shock by touching a conductor  or when walking over a carpet If we  touch our faces or shake hands, but  we are not as subjective to electrical  , Influences as those who come from sea  level or from places where the air la  moist.    These people, of course," are  shocked easily, and as it is a new experience for them they invariably believe   that  the   telephone   or  electric  light wires are crossed and that they  are in danger of electrocution.  |     "We had a woman in the hotel last  week who was startled because wiien  she began to comb  the hair of her  French poodle electric currents ran up  her arms.   She thought that somebody  ihad been playing a joke on her dog,  land she was furious until I explained  j to her the cause."���������Denver Republican  I  - '������������������'���������'���������-,_' In British Columbia  Lager Beer and Porter Guaranteed  Brewed  from the Best Canadian Malt Run Hops  ^9**9**9999**9**********99*9^  9 9*?* 9 9 99*9*1*  Miners' Drilling: Machines,  'Made to order and Repaired at short  notice.

A Black-nil.h Wood Carver.  i    John AleClellen of Mount Airy, Md.;  its not only a fine blacksmith, but he  j has  shown  himself to  be an  expert  I wood   carver.     With   the  long  quiet  j evenings before him he conceived the  iidea of whittling a seven foot black  j walnut   log  with   a   penknife.     Four  i years he spent at the amusement, of-  i ten getting up at 4 o'clock in the morning to take his sharp knife and whittle  at the log.    He put a  little time at  meals and in the evening.   Recently he  went to Hagerstown and brought the  result along iu a glass case, and it is  now on exhibition there.   It is the running gear of a farm wagon complete  In every detail, together with a chain  and other fixings.   It is perfect in every way, not a pin missing, not a part  wanting and all in one piece, nothing  added or pieced on in any way.   It Is  a'wonderful bit of patience and skill.  Mr. McClellen used up over .*?25 worth  of penknives at it and once bought a  five dollar one  with tempered  blades  and found it snapped up as easily as  the   others.���������Blacksmith   and   Wheelwright.
