ISSUED TWICE A WEEK
PreliminarySurvey
Report That Kettle Valley Line Will
Place a Party in the Field
A Midnight Blaze Destroys J. T. Lawrence's Residence
Across the   River—An  Enigmatical Bill   of
Fare—General Local News
It is currently reported on the
streets that the Kettle Valley line is
making preparations to commence
work on the survey of its North Fork
road. A. W. Davis, C.E., who was
ohargts of the survey of* the Grand
Forks »fc Republic road, is in the city,
and it is snid he is now engaging men
to take the field as soon as the snow is
off the ground in the hills. It w also
stated that they are anxious to have
the survey completed by the time the
provincial house meets in July to deal
with the government's railway policy,
so as to have all the necessary data
ready to lay before the members. It is
expected that tiie road will receive a
substantial provincial subsidy.
J. L. Lawrence, who lives across the
river on the Cooper ranch, lost his
'louse and contents by fire Thursday
night. When the family retired no
si^'ns t.r lire were visible anywhere,
but about midnight they were awakened by smoke and flames, and had
barely tame to partly dress before making their escape. Mr. Lawrence attempted to remove some of the furniture, but only succeeded in saving the
sewing machine and a couple uf chairs.
Everything else was burned. There
was no insurance on either the building or the household bffects, and the
loss will be quite heavy. They have
taken up their residence in a building
close by the one destroyed, on a ten
acre tract recently purchased by .Mr.
Lawrence.
The conundrum social given by the
Ladies' Aid of the Vresbyterian
church on Tuesday evoning waa a decided success. The bill of fare,, consisting of fifteen numbers, kept more
than one guessing as to thc best number WOrder to get something substantial to eat. For instance No. .*( was
down as ''spring offering," and visions
of spring chicken iloated before one's
mind, but when it appeared it was
nothing but river water. "Old maids'
comfort" was certainly a pu/./.ler, and
was ordered frequently to satisfy the
young men's curiosity, but it proved
t» be common tea. Then "painkiller"
was eagerly ordered, with the idea that
it would be something nice U> drink,
and when the waitress prisluced a
littlit plate of mustard— well, the cus-
tuners didn't think they would eare
for it. One party in particular ordered four numbers, rensoniug that lie
WOnld surely strike soinetniug good in
one of them. When they were set before him they consisted of a glass of
river water, a little mustard, two little
onions and a pickled beet. His next
order was the entire bill of fare. The
room was divided in the centre by
curtains, and on one side tables were
nicely arranged, at which which good
looking young ladies, attired in white
aprons, presided and supplied the good
things to eat, while the other side was
arranged for games and cozy corners
for social chats, to be indulged in after
the' business of satisfying the inner
man had been disposed of. The proceeds amounted to alM>ut $51.
After many years in the minstrel
field the well known managers of the
Mahara Minstrel and Operatic Stars
this Beason have hit- upon a new idea
in minstrelsy. And in view of tlu>
old-time performance,   they represent
mirth, melody and music of a newer
and more attractive kind; in fact, it is
said the elaborate program "a la musi-
cale" iH one of the best things ever introduced in a bill of the kind. Thu
comedians are many and from a school
of humor where only the besteinnnat
from, while the dancing octette and
numerous other clever ehups who have
a band in tht; fun-making are a decidedly up-to-date lot. Mahar-u'g
Minstrel Operatic Stars come to the
Biden opera house on Tuesday, April
26th. A grand street parade will he
given at 12 m.
0. S. Scott, of Listowell, Ont., ar
rived in thc city last Wednesday
This is Mr. Scott's second trip to this
part of the country, he having spent
his vacation here some two years ago.
He has been attending college since
that time, taking a special course in
mining. He will remain here for the
summer.
Geo. A. Fraser, M.P.P., and John
Mcintosh, of Grand Forks, are at the
Balmoral. It is infe.ired that their
visit may have something Ut do with
the question of the coal lands of Southeast Kootenay. This was an important issue in the election campaign
conducted by Mr. Fraser, and Mr Mcintosh is said to 1m: one of those interested in the claims.—Victoria Times.
\V. U. Willcox, editor and proprietor of thc PhoentX Pioneer, passed
through the city Wednesday enroute
home, after a two weeks' visit at the
coast. While away he virited Vancouver, Victoria and .Seattle. Owing
to washouts on the Spokane Falls A.
Northern, he had to come in from
Spokane via Bonner's Ferry and Nelson, which he says is a trying trip,
but nevertheless much better than being sidetracked and waiting for repairs
to be made to damaged railways.
Mrs. Willcox and daughter will remain at the coast foracoupleof weeks
longer,
The lirst through mail from eastern
Canada and the states via Spokane
for about a week arrived Wednesday,
having been brought iu by way of
Bonner's Ferry and Nelson. The V
S. mail for Republic also came through
on the same route.

services in Holy Vrinity churoh on

II. Hinton left tm Thursday morn
ing for Slocan C'ify, where lie has accepted a position with the C. P. It
Company. Mr. Hinton will be great
ly missed by his many friends, and
especially in music circles, in which h
has been so popular. The good wishes
of all go with him to his new field of
labors.

also to the children of the Sunday
school for their contributions to the

Dinsmore that a full record of each

minutes, so as to give a continuous
history of the church, was adopted, and
his offer to provide a'history of the
eal'ly years of the church was accepted
with thanks. The meeting then
closed with the doxology.

There is as yet no indication of resumption of work at the Northport

full blast about the first for a long
and successful run. The "sows" (the
settlings at the bottom of the fur-
nunci's), are now being broken with a
pile-driver, and guards are constantly
on duty to see that no one steals the
rich product. Not over 40 men are at
work around the plant.

direot to the full eourt, which has now
declared the act ultra vires. The provincial government will bike the matter to the judicial committee of tho
privy council in London, the last
court of appeal in the empire. In doing this it has the support of a noteworthy minority judgment by Justice
Martin, who declares the act intra
vires, wliileChief Justice Hunter and
Justice Irving are of the opinion that
the act is without the power of the
loeal legislature. This question has
already been before the privy council
in London in one guise, when the
celebrated cuse of Brydon versus The
Union Colliery company was taken to
the law lords for a decision. They upheld the eompany as against the country. Thc legislature immediately
strengthened the coal mines regulation
act and thejaw officers ■»•*••>* -i/ter M.V.
Dunsmuir again, only to come up
against the full court. Justice Martin, however, docs not think that the
point of principal importance in the
Brydon ease applies in this one. Then
their lordships felt the act was directed against aliens; now it has been altered only to apply to the class who
can not comply with the simplest regulations, a great difference in Justice
Martin's opinion.

FRIDAY, APRIL 22   1901
A few explanatory words of the <1
lay until today in issuing lust Tuesday's
edition of Tin-; Sun may not be amiss.
While running oil'our heavy editorial
pages Tuesday evening at a terrific
speed a small brasifcog-wheel in the
press became overheated and broke.
It is surmised by the mechanical
genius who presides over Tiik Nun pressroom that the wheel came in contact
with some of the heat thrown out by
sundry editorial comments on divers
local issues, thus causing it to expand
and finally to snap into half a dozsn
pieces. In order to avoid a repetition
of this calamity, we have placed thc
said editorials in cold storage for a
few weeks. But, to speak seriously,
we feel as badly over this unavoidable
delay as our readers, ami as we send
out a double dose of Sunk today, we
entertain strong hopes of receiving a
full and unqualified pardon, It is fortunate that there is such an institution in Grand Forks as the Boundary
Iron Foundry, which enabled us to get
a new brass casting in so short a time.
In spite of the fact that Chinamen
1 ave to pay 8500 per head to land in
Canada, 114 pig-tojled passengers were
brought to Victoria this week by the
steamship Kmpre.ss of China, Everyone had to deposit the entrance money
on going aboard thc steamer. This
means a $57,000 contribution to the
federal treasury. It also means that
the province of British Columbia will
have 114 more Chinamen to contend
with. It would seem that the head
tax will have Ut he more than doubled
to keep the almond-eyed immigrants
from flowing into the province,
The telegraphic reports sent out
broadcast by a Winnipeg correspondent to American newspapers to the
effect that there there were serious
floods in that city and other parts of
Manitoba, has turned out to be false
and without any foundation whatever.
Ah a matter of fact, the water in the
rivers in the vicinity of Winnipeg was
lowerat the time the false reports were
sent out than at the same season for
years past. The Free Press and Telegram, the two leading dailies of Winnipeg, are making every  endeavor to
find out the name of the correspondent, whom they term the "Winnipi
Liur," and if they are successful it will
go hard witli him. The reports were
copied in all the lending papers of the
United States and Canada, and as a
result works a great injury to that
part of the Dominion. The American
journals that are endeavoring to stay
the tide of immigration to Canada, are
making good use of such reports in
deterring intending settlers from go-
iug into the Northwest territories.
AHAftA'S BIG
Minstrel
An Indianapolis exchange says: " 'in a colored band every man imagines
himself the leader,'was a remark made by Prof. W, E. Handy, the genial
director of music for M^hara's big minstrel company, when interviewed !a*t
evening after the company's magnificent performance. The profoso", as a'l
lovers of music know, is famous as a cornet and violin virtuoso, u compose^
and as a band leader is called the colored Sousa, and it was only after considerable wire pulling and an offer of a fat salary that the Maharns induced him
to resign his position ata proriunenjfc college (which, by the wav, is the largest
institution "f its kind in the world), to direct the musical afl'airs of the .Southern organization. Muhara's minstrels last evening gave the most up-to date,
clever, minstrel show ever seen*here." The company will play at tho Biden
opera house for one night only on Tuesday, April 26th.
had the printing of all the bills which
had reached their third reading at tin;
present session ofthe legislature, were
burned out, which will mean an indefinite postponement of the prorogation of the legislature, as the law requires that alt bills must be printed
before thi,1 lieiiteinmi-govornor gives
assent to them.
As the federal authorities have declined to interfere with or disallow
the act dealing with blocks 4593 (tnd
4")94, in Southeast Kootenay, further
discussion as to the rights ot the British Columbia government to issue
licenses to coal and petroleum prospectors in that region is useless. The
oft-repeated excuse that the Dominion
government might at any time up to
the 1st iff May veto the bill is now
out of date. The matter should now
be dealt with either one way or the
other. The government should either
issue the licenses or else make a definite statement to the effect that they do
not intend to carry out their ante-
election promises.
An importer of radium in Ne.v
York gives out the startling news that

Will Not Interfere
Ottawa Says Coal Lands Question Is a
•Domestic Affair
Prominent C.P.R. Officials Will Visit the City—Traffic Conditions Have Improved Slightly--Phoenix
Scandal Reaches a Climax.
In n special dispntch from Ottawa, dated April IS, to the Nelson
News, the following slatement ia
made: The cahinet on Saturday
had under consideration 'he British
Coiumliia act legalizing the cancellation of tho grant of blocks 4593
and 4594 in Southeast Kootenay to
the C P.K. Thc cabinet declined to
interfere with or disallow the net,
which is purely n domestic measure.
This does away with any further discussion as to the rights of the British
Columbia government to issue the
licenses.
Superintendent Mnrpolo. of the
Pacific division of the C.P.R., with
headquarters at Vancouver, and
Wm White, superintendent of the
Manitoba division, are expected to
arrive in the city within the next
few dnys on tin official visit. Although the plans for the enlargement antl improvement uf the yards
here have not yet been received by
thc company's locnl agent, ifis understood they embrace more work
than wns nt lirst intended, antl no
doubt full details will be available
wben the above ollieials pass on the
plans.
Traffic c iiiilit'ona have improved a
little since last Friday. The C.R.R.
trains ht tween Kelson and Midway
nre again running almost on sthedule
time. The Washington & Great
Northers train got as far south as
Marcus this tnor ling, and returned
this evening, The Spokane Falls-,1
Northern is still tied up between Spokane und Marcus, uml mail matter
from the states and eastern Canada is
i-till held at H] okiine, and will not
reach here tint 1 the entire line isoj en.
Referring to tho local situation,
says the Phoenix Pioneer, it may be
said that the city is in disgrace. It
.ItiiH been disgraced by the recent acts
of its heretofore honori d mayor, ami
now sn arts unili r tlefe it at the hands
of a one-man power, booked by Victoria. The real situation is this:
Owing to trouble between Chief nf
Police 11 mil and a denizin of the tenderloin district and subsequent developments through the testimony of
witnesses under oath, the city council,
out of regard for common decency, demanded the summary dismissal of
Chief Flood and the resignation of W.
11. Wii.iiAuis as police commissioner
and police iinigist.iate. Bo it suid lo
the credit of L. Y. Birnie, when he
. discovered the tjuestionablo intention
of his colleagues on the police commission, immediately resigned. To
these demands the mayor demurred,
hut promised to remove Chief Flood.
A month passed and Flood was still in,
hence the wrath and resignation of the
city council last Wednesday night,
It has been understood from street report, as no other iinforniation is obtainable, that Birnie's resignation has
been accepted at Victoria, although
he at this writing has hud no official
notification to that effect. It is also
reported that W. R. Williams' resig
nation from the police commission hud
been sent to Victoria, and that it had
not been accepted. Be this as it may,
the solid three are, by the grace of
Victoria authority, still in the saddle.
It has been intimated by the mayor
that the names of James Punch and
Wm. Delahuy has been suggested to
the government as suitable timber for
the new commission, should one be
allowed.. The action of Mayor Rum-
berger, though highly respected in this
community, has adtled little to his
credit in his apparent efforts to shield
and retain in office men who have lost
I ublic confidence. In the meantime
Flood is pariiding as one having authority, antl the city is being guarded
at night by a new star in the police
firmament.
Postmaster Geo, II. Hull returned

William linbb. who met with' u
serious accident nn Christinas* h\-fulling through the crib work at the Knob
Hill ore bins, left Phisjiiix last week
fur his old home in Scotland.
Another accitlent occurred Friday
morning at the B. C. Copper company's smelter, which resulted in serious injuries to Oscar iiiuumnr and
gave a vicious shaking up to his companion, Albert Sodcrstrom. The two
men were wheeling ore in ears from
the ci usher to the ore bins, between the
two buildings, a distance of Home
thirty feet, the track Ix'ing laid on a
trestle, While passing over this with
a loiitlt'd ear, the trestle gave Way, and
Hunimiu went down with His oar to
the ground below, a distance of some
sixteen feet. Soilci'stroin, who was behind with Another loaded car, was unable to stop it in time, and it antl ho
went through the break together.' A
number of Hammar's ribs were broken
and he was otherwise badly bruised.
Soderstrom escaped with a few
scratches on his face and hands. The
injuries shstained by Hammar resulted
in his death Friday noon, the immediate cause being a severe hemorrhage of
the lungs, due to the crushing in of
his side in the fall from the trestle.

M. Burrell Submits a Proposition Offering to Furnish Shade |
Trees With Which to Beautify the City at
Reasonable Rates.
Th'j regular weekly meeting of tne
city council was held last night,
Mayor Hammar, Aid. McCallum,
Martin, MeNee, Feeney and Hutton being in attendance.
The following communication was
rend from Martin Burrell, of the
Riverside Nurseries, this city :
To His Worship the Mayor and Members of the 0 'y Council:
Gentlemen:—last year weshipped
n number of trees to thc city of Rossland for planting in thc streets, and
this year have received enquiries
from other towiiB which have not
the great advantages of Grand Forks.
May I respectfully suggest that the
planting of shade trees in such residential streets ns Victoria avenue
anil tbe cross streets running to the
mountain would greatly benefit and
beautify the city, and emphasize its
especial claims as the best residential centre ill the interior. Should
your honorable body deem it well to
plan trees in any of tbe streets this
year, I would suggest that the present is a good time lo do so, nnd beg
to submit the following proposition:
I will supply maples from eignt to
ten feet high, as uniform a grade as
possible, delivered in thc city at the
following rates: If from 50 to 100
are taken, nt (ifiecach; Irom 100 to
150, at (iOc; from 150 to 200, at 55c
each, payment to go first towards all
taxes owing by me. I have the honor
to remain, yours truly,
M. Burkell.
On motion of Alfl. McNee, the
city council endorsed the petition
to the provincial government asking
aid for the construction of a bridge
across the river at Fourth street.
Returning Officer Bower reported
the election of M. S. Martin, and
stated tbat his oath of office had
been filed.
Aid. McNee was appointed chairman of the wn>er and light committee. Aid. Martin was also placed on
the same committee.
The board of works reported that
he estimated cost of grading First
str.et was $100. On motion of Aid.
McCallum, the board was authorized to proceed with the work.
The water and light committee
recommended that Mr. Rutley's application for water be granted, tbe
cost of the same to be borne by the
applicant.
The following bills were ordered
paid: V. & N. Tel. Co., $!); Eastern
Townships bank, I285.2B; J. W.
Jones, $1K; Gutta Percha & Rubber
Mfg. Co., SH.70.
On motion of Aid. McCallum, the

There bus been of late persistent

Whether the report be duo or not,
i In- fact of Its existence indicates that

unsettled question: Should tho company, with its almost unlimited
financial resources ami expressed desire to use tbem in immense industrial mining operations in thoSlmil-

the line because of disputed rights
to a lew notes of ground, nn irreparable blunder will have been committed, The Rossland folly of driving an industry across the bonier to

former, should not be repeated. The

iu favor of keeping the industry in

After a man has made u failure
of every other calling in life, he
invariably engages in journalism, ns
that profession requires little or no
grey matter. But, strange to say,
his career in that business is generally nn inglorious one und of short
duration.
The council should not hesitate to
accept Mr. ISurrell's proposition to
supply the city with trees for planting at the figures which be bas submitted. There is nothing that could
be done with so small nn outlay of
money which would add more at
tiaotiveness to ttie eity than thi
planting of nice shade trees on the
principal residential street. In a
few years thc improved nppe.ir.ince
of these thoroughfares would amply
repay the small expenditure. We
do not think the ratepayers would
oiler any objection to the carrying
out of this project) but on thc contrary would heartily favor it.

little craft begun to toss and roll in n
manner that caused the lawyer much in

WHY CO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of the Rocky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on the
American continent?
This you can do by traveling on,
the Rio Grande system, the far-
fanfed "'Scenic Line of the World,1'
the only transcontinental line passing through Salt Lake City, Glen-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enroute to eastern points,
Three daily express (rains make
close connections with all trains east
and west, and afford a choice of five
distinct routes of travel. The equipment of these trains is the best, including free redlining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, a perfect dining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion cars,
each in charge of a competent guide,
whose business is to look after the
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing the continent can bo found
than is provided by these excursions.

...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
been upon The News/or the past few
months, during which time several '
departures have been made which
have given thnt paper a widespread
reputation for enterprise and originality. Tbis latest move is to place
The News nt the price of 81.00 a
year by mail, Only a deep-founded
belief in the future success of The
News could lead the publishers to
make such a reduction in price.
But just as the dollar magazine has
taken 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 at which it is sold, but
mainly upon the intrinsic merits of
he paper.
We have arrangements concluded
which-enahlcs us to clubtheToronto
News with our own paper at $2.25 a
year in advance. Such a combination present* many unique features
—our semi-weekly giving you all
thc home nnd district news, and
the big 12-pngc dnilv kcepingyou in

The Unpopularity of Whiskers.
Commenting on tiie fact that Governor Alexander Monroe Dockery has
just di vented hla countenance of a
celebrated and almost immortal set
of whiskers, the New York "Sun"
•ays: "The twentieth century is beginning somewhat as the nineteenth
century began, though, of course, not so
strictly ana universally smooth, but It Is
doubtful If it will run parallel through all
Its quarters with its predecessor. There
were no mustaches, no bnards, when the
nineteenth century dawned. Side whiskers began to curl end sprout before it
had run far in it? course, und they gre*
bolder after a time and encircled th-s
throat and chin, leaving bare the uppei
Hp. The lip was submerged about 1S00,
and In the later yenrs of destruction wad
last to yield to the assaults of the barber. The human countenance began to
exhibit itself again not long after the
war, and from that time down to the
very recent past the unsupported mustache was tne prevailing -mode. Now
fashion isi changing again, so that the
young men are commonly completely
■haved, and their fathers nave covered
lips. The youth of to-day have the
weight of civilized precedent with them.
An examination of the family albums ot
the last four centuries will demonstrate
that the unwhiskcrpd have had by far
the better of it. For nearly two hundred
years of that time the beard was not
permitted to sprout. A great deal of encouragement for the shaven but ambi-
-tious young mnn may be found in thf
Presidency of che United States. From
the beginning with Washington down to
Lincoln's time whiskers found lodgment
tn the White House only three times.
and In every cane they were of the remote variety known as sideboards, which
offered no considerable obstruction to
the observation of the faces to which
they were linked. John Quincy Adams
presented * stubborn pair, Martin Van
Buren's were amiable in their moods, and
Zachary Taylor's were evidently the unobtrusive expression of a fancy for trimmings. Lincoln inaugurated the bearde-i
era, which waa carried oo bv Grant
Hayes, Garfield, Arthur (with Dun
drearys), and Harrison, though Harri
son yielded not a little of his expaua
before he retired from office. Clevelan
was the first roustached President am
Roosevelt the Kcond, while McKinle;
preserved the tradition of the smcit.
face.
A Curse, Not a Blessing.
There Is something in the saying of a
medical journal that if a certain treatment for consumption had turned out to
be the magic cure that was anticipated,
It would have proved a curse to the race.
The explanation la that the causes of the
disease are known and preventable, and
that to dodge the penalty and permit
the causes still to 'operate would be to
do a degrading thing, one certain to result in the deterioration of character.
The moral way to abolish infectious dis
eases is to remove disease-breeding conditions, and that is also generally the
speediest and safest method.
We wish to state that we have no intention of selling out or raising prices,
as reported. We are prepared to serve
the wants of the public in the meat line,
either wholesale or retail, at reasonable
prices, and always carry a complete stoek
of Fresh and Cured Meats, Fresh Fish,

best kept in stock. Your trade solicited.

Artistic and Beautiful
Tiie use of electric light is becom
so general for house lighting in Toronto
that it seems almost unnecessary to
demonstrate the many beautiful elFects
which may be had by the USfl of electric
lighting In the home. Tho Electric Litrhl
Company find, however, a very good purpose is being accomplished by having the
art showrooms in tliolr new office building in Adelaide street east thrown open
to the public. It is their Intention to
hnve an exhibit of tbe latest things in
electric fixtures there, in order that Toronto people may have the benefit of n
large variety of beautiful pieces to select from. Their wish is thnt everyone
who takes an interest In the artistic and

WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sago brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well take a delightful, eool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of tho Rooky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on thc
American continent?
Tbis you can do by traveling on,
tbe Rio Grande system, the far-
famed "Scenic Line of tbe World,"
the only transcohtinerital line passing through Salt Lake City, Glen-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enroute to eastern points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains east
ami west, and afford a choice of live
distinct routes of travel. The equipment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair ears,
standard and tourist sleepers, a perfect dining ear service, and also
personally conducted excursion cars,
each in charge of n competent guide,
whose business is lu look after the
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing thc continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.

THE   TORONTO
DAILY NEW
AND THE
TWICE=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
been upon Thc News for the past few
months, during which time several
departures have been made which
have given that paper a widespread
reputation for enterprise and originality. This latest move is tn place
The News at the prico of 81.00 a
year by mail. Only a deep-founded
belief in tbe future success of The
News could lead the publishers to
make such a reduction in price.
But just as the dollar magazine has
taken hold of tbe people, so, we venture to predict, Tin? News will secure a vast and ever-increasing circulation, based not only on the popular price at which it is sold, but
mainly upon tbe intrinsic merits of
he paper.
Wc have arrangements concluded
which enables ns to club the Toronto
News with our own paper at $2.25 a
year in advance. Suet) a combination presents many unique features
—our semi-weekly giving you nil
the home and district news, and
the big 12-pago daily keepingyou in
touch with events all over the world.
Send us your subscription to The
News, or il you would like to see
the paper lirst, write us and we will
secure a sample copy.

Dick-xns i-xoUs las Gw.i.
Do»s Pi-ike;.--, it 1a oftaB asked, realty
hold his own nj?:unst tlio Hood of modern
stories which pours into the shops
of the bookaelleral Messrs; Cluip-
man & Hall, his old London publishers, hnve brnn looking into their
ninny years past those have averaged
considerably over a quarter of n million
copies annually, and that so fnr from
there being any decline, the Interest in
Dickens and the consequent sales of his
works are increasing every year. It
would appear that the difference in tho
individual sales of Dickens's books is
remarkably small, especially when cia
thinks of the long list of them. The
least popular is tho "Child's History of
Kngland," and, ns might be Buppoaed-
the standing favorite is "Pickwick." During the past three years, however, there
has been a great Incmme in tlio sale of
the "Tale of Two Cities"—so much so
that it would come first by many copies
for those particular years. No doubt
this is mostly due to the success of -Mr.
Martin Harvey's play, "The Only Way."
While this piece—the story dramatized—-
was being performed in "London there
was a brisk demand daily for the book.
Next to "Pickwick," the permanent favorite, judged by cireulnhon, is "David
Copperfleld," and, indeed, there is not
much to choose between the two. From
them there is a rather considerable drop
to "Oliver Twist" and the "Old Curiosity
Shop," the sales of which have differed
from each other only to the extent of
three bundled copied,
Three other stories which may be
ranked together are "Nicholas Nicklohy,"
"Donibey and Son" and "Bleak House."
"Little Dorrit" and "Our Mutual Friend"
come along in oompany with "Martin
Chuzzlewit." and the Christmas books
not fnr behind. "Mai-tin Chnzzlewit" is
an illustration of tlio slightrVess of vicissitude that Dickens's books have
shown. When it was published he declared that it was n hundred limes the
best thing he hnd done. But aomehow
the original sales were quite disappointing, nnd Dickens wns really nnxlotts ns
to whether the reading public waa not
forsaking him. Every year it improved
its position, and if that were to be estimated on ,its whole sales—and not on
those of the past throe years billy—it
would protmbly come next to "Pickwick"
and "David Copperfleld," In his recent
article on Dickens, Mr. Swinburne declared thnt "Great Expectations" was
perhaps the best of his novels. On sales
it comes fourteenth in the list, but the
recent cheap edition has given it a very
large vogue with the public. Generally
speaking, the public demand for individual novels bv Dickens is in harmony
with the verdicts which literary opinion
hns pronounced upon them. In other
words, the books of bin which the literary critics have exalted are also most
bought by the public.
