Frank Hagen; a Norwegian, nearly lost Ins life by drowning in the
river, below .1. W. Jones' furniture
store, about 11 o'clock last Tuesday
evening. It appears he Was walk-
ii g down Riverside avenue, and
turning to his left started toward the
river, and when within a few feet of
the bank his hat blew off, and while
trying to jecover it be leil into the
Water. He connneneed to call loudly
for help, and fortunately for him
Mrs. ,1. W. Jones, who had not yet
retired, heard his cries and at once
gave the alarm and several men
came to the rescue of the unfortunate man. Tbey found him cringing
to a small log, nearly frozen by the
icy water. Louis Larson and another man swam out to where Hagen
was sti.l clinging to the log, ready at
any moment, how.-ver, to relinquish
his hold. Tbey managed to bring
him safely bnfk to shore. He was
t iken to 1'eti wbn's hotel and made
comfortable, anil next day was none
tbe worse for bis cold bath. Had
not Mrs. Jones beard bis erics for
help he would undoubtedly have
been drowned and his body carried
down the river.

and an impromptu dance in honor
of the visitors. No admission wi

The English church entertainment
held in Alberta hall last night turned
out to be a brilliant success. Thc
hall was taxed to its fullest capacity
and every one had a most enjoyable
time. Vocal and instrumental music
took up a portion of thc evening, and
some of the best local talent was
heard. Refreshments were served,
and when the entertainment closed
the hall was cleared for dancing.
which was indulged in for Beveral
hours by those with inclinations for
that pastime. The financial part,
as well ns the social, was very satisfactory.

by the city treasurer, is as follows:

be given consisting of speeches, vocal
and instrumental music, and an address by Mrs. Marion 11. Baxter,
of Seattle, deputy supreme commander of the L. O. T. M. for llritish Columbia* and the Northwest
territories. Mrs. Baxter is an able
speaker, having had considerable experience as a W. C. T. LI. speaker, and
those who hear her will no doubt
find her lecture a very interesting
one. A novel feature of the evening will be the Maccabee drill,which
will bo presented to tho public for
the first time in this city. The
Rossland guards, consisting of seventeen members, will bepresent, and
a competitive drill'will be given by
the guards from that city and Grand
The Odd Fellows attended divine
services in a body last Sunday morning in Holy Trinity church. Rev.
Steele preached, taking for his text
verses 25, 26 anil 27, tenth chapter of St. Luke. In his opening remarks he reviewed the history of the
lodge from its foundation up to the
present time, and commented very
favorably on its progress and rapid
advancement The lodge ritual, he
said, was similar to the form of service UBed by the church. His sermon throughout was both interesting and instructive. The hymns
were No. 165, "Lord thou bath been
our refuge from one generation to
another;" No. 210, "And now
abideth faith, hope, charity, these
three; but the greatest of these is
charity;" No. 280, "And they shall
be Mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in
that duy wben I make up My
jewels." Psalm 72, "Deus, judicium," was read. The seating capacity of thc church was overtaxed

The Coal Licenses
Ministry Said to Be Considering the
Matter.
A Brief History of the Famous Question That Has Been
Agitating the People of This Province for
Over Six Months.
The provincial government is said
to now I.ave under consideration the
methods of dealing with the lands ill-locks 4593 and 4504, Southeast
Kootenay, says the Victoria Times
of the 20th itiBt. The promise hos
heen made by Premier McBrido that
immediately after the time has expired within which bill No. 16,
which became an act of tho legislature in the session of 1903, might be
disallowed at Ottawa, he would
take action. Tho announcement
from Ottawa that the act is to be al
lowed removes the last excuse the
premier has to put up for inaction.
During the last election for the
legislature it is said that candidates
iu the government interests who contested constituencies were these lands
were an issue, were assured from
gi VJrnm ont quarters that the cabinet was going to deal with the mat-
t -r at once. On the strength of this
Ihe candidates fromised an early
settlement, and secured the interested vote.
Naturally those affected began immediately afterwards to press upon
the members for a fulfillment of tho
anti-election promises in this regard. In turn tho premier was
pressed by the government members. Delays followed, and then
threats of disruption. The premier
finally became inspired with an excuse, and wrote Geo. A. Fraser, of
Grand Forks, one of the most persistent seekers for a definite answer,
as follows:
Ho blocks 4593 and 4594—
Dear Sir:—The policy of the present government with regard to thc
disposition of the lands is to secure
all present legal holders of any claims
thereon tbeir statutory rights. Wc
deem it advisable not to take immediate action along these lines, as we
wish to avoid any complications
which might arise by alleged claims
that may he made nn behalf of the
C P.R, which wo do not recognize.
We do not anticipate that tbe Do.
minimi government will attempt to
ilis-llow chapter 8, Statutes 1008,
but it is thought advisable to defi r
action until the disallowancr period
shall  have  elapsed,   which   will bo
about May 1st, 1904.    It edlately
after this last mentioned date we
propose to deal with the lands in
question as though the same had always been vacant crown lands, and
will then recognize all valid legal locations according to tbeir priority,
including these now in existence.
Wc will not, however, assume the
responsibility of deciding conflicting
claims.
This was in December, 1903.
In the bouse; in reply to questions
of W. W. Ii. Mclnnes on December
lltb, the premier said that the government   proposed   to recognize a(l
statutory rights which have been secured by applicants for coal and petroleum in blocks 4593 and 4594.
There were then about 679 coal
licenses applied for. Twenty-one
applications had been granted within block 4594.
The blocks in question include
about 625,000 acres. In the year
1890 block 4593 was placed under
reserve, and in 1891 set apart as a
grant to tho B. C. Southern Railway
company Block 4594 was never
under reserve, although for years it
was believed to have been. There
are ex-members of provincial governments whoareinclincd to believe,
however, that this block also was
under reserve, and that a mistake
has been made in this respect.
These lands, which arc regarded
as being among the most valuable
within thc p'ovincc, require to bi
dealt with wisely. It is readily admitted that if properly conducted
the opening of them would furnish
the means for wiping out the entire
debt of the province.
Parties interested arc already in
the city awaiting the announcement
of the government's plans respecting
them. The responsibility resting
upon thc government in this matter
is great. The greatest care must be
exercised in order to protect thc
rights of the province. The McBrido government, with ample time
in which to consider thc matter, cannot be exonerated if there is nny
sacrificing of thc country's interests.
SUNSET   SAUNTERINGS
The C.P.R. yard in this city is
beginning to assume a different
aspect since the arrival of tin; steam
shovel. The large sandbanks arc being rapidly removed to make room
for additional sidetracks, which
when completed will add greatly to
the appearance of the yard, besides
materially increasing the  switching
fooilities    of   the   s:     The dirt
taken away is being used for making
fills wherever needed along tbe
line.
Ira Gill bad oneiif his hands badly
burned while at work at tin- smelter
last Tuesday. A piece of red-hot
slag sputtered out of tbe pot and
lodged in bis clothes, and it was
while in the act of removing it tbat
tbe accident to his hand occurred.
This is the second injury sustained
him at the smelter. A short time
ago he bad a foot badly crushed by
one of thc slag engines.

FRIDAY, APRIL 29, 1904
It is certainly time that tbe city
council passed a by-law regulating
bicycle riding in the thickly populated portions of the city. A stringent law prohibiting the use of the
sidewalks to wheelmen throughout
the entire city wonld scarcely be
necessary, but it should cover the
ground sufficiently to put a stop to
the reckless riding nnd scorching in
the business centre of the town
wheih daily threaten injury to pedestrians. There is a long stretch
of sidewalk between the East and
West wards that no one would object to being used by wheelmen so
long as they observe a proper regard
forthesafety of the walking population.
A conservative estimate made by
the Dominion immigration department
places the number of settlers that will
arrive iri Canada this year at 150,000.
A few years of immigration at this rate
will place Canada in the first-class-
nations column, so far as population is
concerned, and there is no reason for
believing that the tide now flowing
this way will decrease during the next
decade.
There is some talk of holding a celebration here on the 24th of May.
If tbe citizens are in earnest about
this matter, there is no time to be
lost in starting preparations for the
show and getting it well advertised.
An eastern philosopher remarks
that a city full of hope is a city full
hustle.
Phoenix Police Squabble
James Punch and Aid. James
Marshall were this week appointed
by the provincial government as
police cnminisioners of Phoenix.
The new ollieials take the places of
W. R. Williams and L. Y. Birnie,
resigned. This is another stop in
the municipal squabble now on
in that city, in which Police Magistrate Williams, Mayor Rumberger
and Chief of Police Flood stand on
one side, and Aid. J. II. Boyle,
William Delahay. L. Y. Birnie,
Alex McDonald and J. .J. Porter,
who recently resigned, arc on the
other. Thc ex-aldermen demanded
the dismissal of Chief Flood, growing
out of a ease of assault in the
tenderloin, and a majority ofthe police commissioners declined to dismiss him. It remains to be seen
whether the new appointees as members of tbe police commission can
do any better than their predecessors, nnd also whether a new city
council can be obtained when an
electi".n is called by thc lieutenant-
governor, as it is expected to be
called in a few days.

The story is told of n Scotch preuclie.
who gave his people long, strong m-
mons, and delivered Ihem in a remark
ably deliberate manner. One Sunday In
askrd a friend who was visiting him te
occupy his pulpit iu the morning. "An'
were you satisfied wV my preaching'"
asked his friend, as they walked hoiii,
Irom the kirk. "Wenl," said his host
"lowly, "it was a fair discoorse, Will'm
a fair discoorse; but il pained me nt tin
last to ser the folk looking 8ao fresh and
wide awoke. I mistrust 'twasna sac lone
nor sae sound as it should hae been."
When Booker T. Washington war
asked by a Southerner recently to prove
to a Northern audience that that section
was really responsible for the introduc
tion of slavery inlo the American colon
ie«, Mr. Washington said lie was reminded of the story of an old colored
man who had a pig, which he sold our
morning to a white man for three dol
lara. The white man drove off with Iii-
purchase, but on the road the pig escaped
and found its way back to tfncle Zeke'f
cabin. A little later, another white man
came along, and Uncle Zeke sold him the
same pig tor another three dollars. Or
Ins way home with the pig the second
purchaser encountered the first returnin"
in search of the escaped animal. Aftei
«mo wrangling they decided to go back
and refer the question to the old darkey.
Uncle Zeke" said number one, "didn't
you sell mc this pig nl nine o'clock thl«
inorn.ng?" "Sho' I did, massa." "But
Uicle Zeke," said number two, "didn't 1
pay you three dollars for this pig al
twelve o'clock!"   "SI,.,' you did. massa.''
Well, then, who does the pig belong to''
"Sokes alive," said Uncle Zeke, "cn't yon
white folks settle dat question between
yo'selves!"

GOOD SERVICE is composed of two elements
—excellence of the work and promptness in
the execution. Bad work executed promptly is not good service—good work delivered behind
time is not good service; but the two combine to
make one of the most necessary, but hardest to obtain and often mciBt expensive, requirements of the
twentieth century business man. That we have
learned the lesson in theory we have shown. Our
customers will testify that we have also learned it
in practice.

DAILY NEWS
AND THE
TW1CE=A=WEEK
...FOR   ONLY.
$2.25 PER YEAR
A radical change from old methods and prices has been made by
the Toronto Daily News. The eyes
of the newspvper world have
heen upon The News for the past few
months, during which time several
departures have heen made which
have given that paper a widespread
reputation for enterprise and originality. This latest move is to place
The News at the price of 81.00 a
year by mail. Only a deep-founded
belief m the future success of The
News could lead the publishers to
make such a reduction in price.
But just ns thc dollar magazine has
tnken hold of the people, so, we venture to predict, The News will secure a vast and ever-increasing circulation, based not only on the popular price nt which it is sold, but
mainly upon thc intrinsic merits of
he paper.
We have arrangements concluded
which enables us to club the Toronto
News with our own paper at i'l'lh a
year in advance. Much a combination presents many unique features
—our semi-weekly giving you all
thc home nnd district news, and
thc big 12-page daily keeping you in
touch with events all over tho world,,

Lyulph Stanley was an Englishman ot
vhom Lowell said thnt he "knew three
imes aa many facts ns any young man
-vhatever hnd any business to know."
, He had but one rival in thnt line:
Palgrave, who compiled the "Golden
Treasury." Much interest sprang up
imong their friends when the two went
■IT on a trip together. '
"It'a an even ohnnee which will return
ilive," said .one man, solemnly. When
■ hey did come back, Paljrtave was pale,
■maciated, silent; but Stanley set mod
.'amoved, and more all-knowing than
"ver.
One night Buckle, the author of "Tho
History of Civilization," was laying
down the law on every subject, with a
magnificent pomposity* that made tho
table quake. At last he put forth some
•statement about the burning of a witch,
ind aet the date a century out of the
way. Stanley, who was present, hnd
home sotne preceding inaccuracies very
well, with only a slight shaking of the
head and a reddening of the face.
Suddenly his self-control gave way,
ind he leaped to his feet. He extended
lis hand, and piped forth in a vigorous
reble:—
"I beg your pardon, hut the lost witch
.vas burned at siich-nml-aw-h a plnce, in
•uch-and-such a year, under such-ami*
■uch circumstances. And her name wns
o-and-so, and yon will find nil about it
■i a book to which I can c.sily rrfer
ou, and which you evidently don't
-now,"
Torrents of imp Isorv-] knowh'd"*. were
ihereupon pnnr-d Q" Budklo's head, until
ihe historian of civillsrtlon snt wrathful;
■vtingnulied. mute. But n little Inter he
iad hi* revenue.   Some one mentioned a
'ipw dictionary ns a good one.
"It in," snid  BhekTe.  with solemnity,
"it is o*ip of the few dictionaries I have
read thrnuijh with pleasure"
The intimation that he had rend any
dictionary  through  for pleasure so ns-
foimhnl 'the guests that they forgot his
past discomfiture in new nwe.
