No. 103.
Alien Labor Law
The Federal Government Intends to
Enforce It.
While No Case of Its Violation Was Established at the En-
quiry This Week, the Evidence Showed that Men
Had Been Sent Here From Spokane.
As a result of a complaint made to ]
tho Ottawa government that the!
Alien Labor law was being violated
in this district, Mr. L. P. Eckstein
was recently appointed by thc minister of justice to hold investigations
nt different points throughout the
Boundary, to take evidence and ascertain if such was thc case.
On Monday and Tuesday, thc
2(ith nnd 27th inst., Mr. Eckstein
received evidence at thc court house
in this city. Provincial {Constable
I. A, Dinsmore, acting as an emigration agent nt this point, submitted
evidence, as did also Dr. John West-
wood, quarantine officer, nnd W. J.
Cook, quarantine guard. While no
case of violation of the Alien Labor
law   was  established, the evidence
went to show that aliens had been
employed by .Spokane agencies nnd
sent to work in the mines at Phoenix, as well as to Grand Forks to
work at the smelter. Several of the
men stated that agencies at Spokane
—naming the Red Cross agency ns
one of them—hnd employed tbem
to come over and work in the Canadian mines. The full report and
evidence taken, which also deals
with emigration affecting this district, will be forwarded to Ottawa
by Mr. Eckstein. .    .
The federal government is to be
commended for its prompt action in
this matter, showing, ns it does, that
it really intends to look out for the
welfare of the Canadian workman,
and to enforce thc Alien Labor law
wherever it is violated.
Ye Okie Folkes Concerto, promoted by Mesdames E. Disney and
Parker, nnd bold in the opera
Wednesday evening, wns quite a success. A lengthy program wns rendered, nnd some twenty people took
part. Thc costumes worn were of
ye good old days, withal exceptionally appropriate. The hull was
fairly well filled, especially the reserved portion of it, nnd the audience was very appreciative. While
space will not permit of a detailed
account of all thc numbers on tho
program, which were generally rendered in an acceptable manner, special mention may be made of several of the performers wdio had to respond to encores. Phila Well's
song, ''Grandma's Advice," was
well given and received merited applause. Miss F. Craddock sang
"Tho Old Folks at Home" in a very
pleasing manner, nnd she hnd to respond to an encore. A. Hinton
brought down the house with his
song, "When George the Third Wns
King." A song by the "nigger"
entitled "Old Blaok Joe," was rendered in splendid style, and called
forth an encore. Mrs. E. Disney
was recalled several times. Her
song, "Caller Herrin," delighted
the audience and brought forth
great applause. Mrs. Parker sang
"Ye Dream o' Home" in her usual
good style, and wns henrtily;rccalled.
Several of the selections given by the
chorus were good, and the curtain
dropped after the singing of "God
Save the King."
j The evening service marks the com
I plction of Mr. Robertson's four
years' pastorate, and the service
will bo specially in harmony with
the occasion. Subject for sermon:

McArthur Bros., of Winnipeg,
who are heavily interested in thc
lumber business of Manitoba, have
been in Grand Forks and other
places in the Boundary district during the past month.   Tho object of
their visit is to look} into the lumber
resources of this section with a view
oj extending their business in this
province. They have inspected all
timber lands tributary to Grand
Forks, and express a favorably
opinion both as to the quantity and
quality of the timber, and it is reported they have made an offer for
the lumber business of Lequime &
Powers, and if it is accepted they
will soon commence operations on a
large scale here.

be occupied by himself and Jeff
Davis, who have formed a partnership to carry on a general mercantile
business, including a full line of
flour and feed. Moth are well known

rumored, is well known in this city.
H. N. Galer, assistant general
mnnnger of thc Granby company,
returned Saturday from Coleman,
Alta., where he had been in connection with the placing of the Coleman townsite on the market. During the first day the sales of lots

lumber can be procured. Several ol
mir local merchants intend erecting

that town in the near future.

Killed in the Knob Hill,
Two men were instantly killed
last Friday in the Knob Hill mine
at Phoenix. A force of men were
working on the night shift, about
-100 feet from the portal in the No.
2 tunnel, when, without winning,
a portion of the roof broke away and
covered Thomas Malloy and James
Crabb with tons of rook, death being instantaneous, One man who
wis in n mine cur hnd just jumped
out, and the Oar was tilled with the
falling oro. A large force of men at
once set to work getting out the unfortunates, the-remains being taken
to the undertakers,
James Crabb wns a young man, n
native of Dehead, Scotland, where
his father still lives. Malloy was an
older man. and was an Irishman by
birth, although little is known of
him 11 ere. Both hud been in camp
but a few months.
Dr. G. M. Foster, district coroner,
at once visited the scene of the accident, but as the shift boss and other
miners present nt the time of the
catastrophe stated that tho place in
question had been carefully examined immediately before the accident, and thought to be safe, the

night proved to he a delightful novelty. The two little girls, Haz 1

very pleasing in dance and coon

very taking. Miss Colliding, the
English cometist, was the star of the
evening, and it is a pity that she did
not give a greater number of selections, as her exceptionally line playing of this, the greatest of all wind
instruments, was much appreciated.
Eor military selections, which she
played in uniform, made a special
hit. Miss Mariilor fainted on the
stage during the evening, and her
performance was very good considering that she has been under the
doctor's care for two days.

resident for years told me the gambling-house paid return/i as regular ai
dividends on the New York ^^ntra1
Railroad. I suppose there are ten rou
lette-tables, and each table Is a haul
with a capital of $120,000. If you wir
all Its capital that particular tablt
closes for tiie day to get a change ol
luck. That Is all? the bank-brenklnr
there is. You would have to go through
all the other tables—roulette, rouge-et-
nnir, and trente-et-quarnnte — befort
you close up the concern, and there art
several of each. They are a dismal
looking lot—the players. I never saw
one of them smile, and the winner!
looked as miserable as the losers. Nobody gets away with any money, nt
matter how much he wins. At least If
Is very rare. I saw one man begir
with a thousand-franc note—$200. H<
played and won—doubled his money;
played, and won again, and agalr
doubled. He kept on until he had wot
about $24,000. Then he started resolutely to go out. At the door he stopped
hesitated, and turned back. He sauntered over to the table, and looked oi
at the game for a while Then he buttoned up his coat again, with great
decision, and started out with a flrti
stride. But he could not — positively
could not get through the door. Thi
last T saw of h I in he was playing awaj
again, and the $21,000 was going pell
mell back lulo the gambling-house cof
fers. I did see one man, however, wli
and go away with his money. He wa«
a very rich man, as I happened tc
know, and Just played fljr fur., not earing whether he won or not. He hat!
astonishing luck. The same numbei
came up five times in succession—nr
unusual thing. It made a great sensH-
lion In the room, and people gatherer
about. At the fifth turn of the num
her he swiped In everything from thi
table, and poked away the wads o
French banknotes into his pocket:
right and left. He ivi :i about $G,000 h

Why Women Can't Throw
IT has uften been ■> source of wonde

to hand, which, It is hoped, will ad<
enlightenment, as well as consolation
to any benighted Benedict who has ex
perlenced this idiosyncrasy. It appear;
that the reason a woman cannot ain
i straight Is on account of her collarbone being too large to enable her t<
acquire a free swipe of the arm. This
simply shows that when kind Provl

|J written, uu th*1 "Spectator" ob-
JX serves, by collecting together all
the oases In Which poets and
dramatists and novelists have anticipated the triumphs of later science, A
correspondent has Just called attention
to such a ca.se, In which he claim?
that the Spanish dramatist Caldcron
uttered "a very clear prevision of Marconi's wireless telegraphy." Pteely
translated, the passage In question
reads as follows: "They say thait when
two Instruments are properly attuned
together they communicate to each
other their wind-borne echoes; touch
the one Instrument and the winds excite Its fellow, though none De near It."
Calderon's reference Is, of course, to
the well-known principle of resonance,
and can scarcely be used as a prophecy
of wireless telegraphy, but In the writings of a contemporary of Calderon
there Is a much closer approximation
to Marconi's discovery. Strada, the
learned Jesuit historian, tells us how
two friends carried on a correspondence "by the help of a certain loadstone, which had such virtue in it that,
If it touched two several needles, when
one of the needles so touched begem to
move, ■ the other, though at never so
great a distance, moved at the same
time and in the same manner." Strada
goes on to describe how these two
friends made a kind of "alphabetic
telegraph" — a dial-face with the letters of the alphabet placed around Its
edge, and a needle In the center which
could be made to point at any of the
letters at will. "When they were some
hundreds of miles asunder, each of
them shut himself up In his closet ait
the time appointed, and Immediately
east his eye upon his dial-plate. If he
had a mind to write anything to his
friend, he directed his needle to every
letter that formed the words which he
had occasion for, making a little pause
at the end of every word or sentence to
avoid confusion. The friend, In the
meanwhile, saw his sympathetic noedls
moving of Itself to every letter which
that of his correspondent pointed at.
By this means they talked across a
whole continent, and conveyed their
thoughts to one another in an instant,
over cities or mountains, sens or deserts." Not only had these correspondents no necessity for wires; they did
not even need the simple apparatus
upon which Marconi depends, although
there are scientific prophets of our day
who believe that we shall yet reach
even a higher standard of simplicity In
the future.

Florence Nightingale has been
shown ot many times and in many
places. A new and striking Instance ot
It was recently given by tihe "Sunday
The lute Sir John Steell, sculptor to
Queen Victoria, was modeling a bust of
Miss Nightingale, -when an ofllcer of
one of the Highland regiments which .
had suffered so cruelly In the Crimea
hoard that the bust had just been completed, and was in Sir John's studio.
Many of the men in his company had
passed through the hospital at Scutari,
and he obtained permission from the
sculptor to bring some of them to see
It. Accordingly a squid of men one
day marched Into the big studio and
stood in line.
They had no Idea why they had been
mustered in so strange a place. Without a word of warning the bust waa
uncovered, and then, as by one Impulse, the men broke rank, and with
cries of "Miss Nightingale! Miss Nightingale!" surrounded the model, and
wltih hats off cheered the figure of their
devoted nurse until the roof rang.
So spontaneous and hearty and so Inspiring wns the whole scene that In
after days Sir John Steell declared It to
■be the greatest compliment of his life.
