NO 22  LETTERS TO THE EDITOR.  THOS UNION CARD.  To tha Kditor oIThi Ihddimdxht:  ' Blr.���In your paper, of August 3th  is a lengthy letter, sighed Unionist, in  '-which he criticizes advocates  of the clerks' card,' nnd says lie  has .visited a few stores, and goods are  not pushed by the clerks. -Now, Mr.  Editor, I do not think the -clerks are  the only ones to push union laibel goods.  To my mind It la the the duty of all  Tunlon men, not only to demand : unlon-  inade goods, but to see that clerks do  tlielr duty In selling union-made goods.  There are7 Instances where clerks have  ithowTi union label goods to capitalists  ' iuid driveni them out of the stores, and  .the only way . we: - know a man Is a  "Friend of the union Is by him asking  Ior onr card or the goods. Unionist  iuske is it fair ..to bo .'compelled to ask  "tor union--goods, when: the i store dis-  Jtdays a union card? In reply, I do not  ���tJilnklt' Is. '"But'I must ' Inform our  ���"trlena thatjihe cannot iflnd' a' store ln  oar city Uiat displays a union store  fcard.eo his -eyes .must have deceived  Tilm when, he ,says they are there if  _rou look for them. And ihe,must not  texpect the clerk -to wear his' card :.pin-  *ned on the lapei of his coat as a.bo-  ��tnet. I also think our friend must have  ftnade his estimate of the union cle.-k  Irom his own actions or from the action of one -whom he only supposed ls  ��. union clerk; but I must admit there  lare some clerks who are not only In-  "auferent to the sale of union goods, but  ' to "their own Interests. As they sa i,  "What is the use of belonging to the  ' tinion, as we are never asked for our  cards, and the union men of tihe city  are 'not' giving us any 'assistance In  %ullding up  our association.    He" also  mays"when lie asks for union label goods  _-* ii  they jump up in price   100 per cent.  This is a great stretch of the imagination, as I have not' heard of a greater  advance _-tlian a'bout 5 per cent. And  ���we.alljknow union wages are about W  l>er' cent, higher than scab wages. Why  -should jdavivorkingman- ask for " the  lelenk's-cnrd, Is too silly a question to  'need an answer.   He also   says   thxt  ... fclertcs think .manual lalbor is low and  'degrading. Now, sir, If Unionist was  to follow some of 'tlie grocery clerto-ln  this city, and do just what they do,", I  think he would come to the conclusion  lie had .performed .as much manual  lalbor as any he had'ever woiked at in  ihis life. Then he speaks about the  'clerks snii'hbing the laborer In public  ���places. I do not think he c.-in refer to  any union clerk In the matter, so we  ���will lot that pass. Unionist says that  ��� Tie will not ask for the clerk's card un-  'der the present circumstances? "We are  ���a small organization, -when we should  ���be the largest In the city, If all union  ���men .would do their duty, by us,.;aind  'demand bur card from every clerk they  tome In contact .with. And being only  "small,   it  is  presumption   on  the  part  " 'of Unionist to imagine it is the, part  'of the clerk to dictate'to the merchant  ���who employs him. It we were a unit  dn this city we could do so, but when  euoh narrow-minded men as unionist  trush to 'the papers to air their views  aibout the clerks he shows his ignorance  when he makes the statement thut they  are the greatest'upholders of thc yellow .plague"that infests our province,  and our1 system is too onesided.; Now  .the only way all union men can make  their Influence felt Is by united action,  ���jiot"only-in-Uie-busInesa of-llfo,-but-by  having more brotherly feeling for all.  W. J. LAM'RLCK.  Vancouver, B. C, Aug. 13, 1902.    .  the miners, aided iby some sore head  politicians who are Jealous of the popularity and prestige gained both at home  and abroad by President Smith, and  who, like -the Jews of old. cry, crucify  Wm; crucify htm, preferring the thelf  and robber to the fair and; good) man.  In their, hatred for him they also strike  at the congress he le the bead of. I  presume thinking that they can kill it  the same aa they crucify Its leader; but  fortunately for the. Dominion Trades  Congress, the Miners' union is not the  ���whole tWlng.; "Phe^e are other unions  which will have a say in this matter and  no one union can by its disaffection  crVpple that body aiiy more than one  union can make it Here again me have  noticed for some time the serpents <f  socialism doing their work by creeping  Into the ranks of laibor to disrupt find  disorganize unions. For.some considerable time the socialist papers have been  -throwing slurs, Innuendoes and invectives at the most active members of, the  congress, -with the set purpose to.epread  discord and <belittle ithe men .'who haj?e  borne .the heat of the day, and who  have-iplaced their .trades .union'before  socialism. And .Ralph Smith, along  with ithe ;rest,- hns not ! escaped 'their  scurrilous attack. The men -who are  rejoicing the loudest at this act of ;the  Miners' union are those -who stand at  the street corners; and denounce-trade  unions and everything .belonging -to  them, and all connected with them, as  fakirs, grafters and heelers, and what  not. Apparently the 'Miners' union has  agreed -with them that these assertions  are correat But I iventure to say that  they will In their: more : sober ��� senses  think differently and (purge their body  of such men. The .miners have made a  mistake which they will regret:in:;the  'near future. Such mien us Kalph' Smith  are not picked ujp every day, and.with  all his faults there is no man who will  dare say that he is dishonest, and If  not, dlshonesthe' must be honest." The  cause of labor cannot afford to play  fast and loose wLth honest men.' Thiy  aretoo few and if a r-between. The'cause  w^aIlts them. And.any man, or body of  men, who permits such things in their  iiiidst.are enemies and sliould -be treated as Such; Therefore; I venture to say  again that the miners -will regret the  action they have taken in-retiring from  tho Doiminion Trades Congress and thus  sitabblng its honored president. The  hand of Esau can ibe seen through the  whole proceedings, and It does not redound with credit to the union that has  permitted it. UNIONIST.  .

N. McMULLEN-  Mount Pleasant, Vancouver. Aug. 21,  190B.  "LHADER" AIND "SOCHAIilST."  To the Editor of Tint iNDxrMDnrr:  Sir,���The -Ladysmlth Leader, tlie organ of Premier {Dunsmulr, and the Canadian Socialist, the organ" of the'B. C.  socialists, are gloating over the fact  'that President Ralph Smith will not represent Nanalmo this year at the Dominion Trades and Labor Congress.  This Is a strange coincidence," to say  the least/ Tour Vancouver .Socialist  sheet sneerlngly points out that Ralph  Smith "wfttle in England wrote to' tbe  -Nanalmo (Miners' union requesting that  he be'granted credentials as a delegate  to the coming session of the Dominion  Laibor Congress AT HIS OWN EXPENSE, hut his letter was laid on,the  ta'ble for three months." We old timers think that this was Indeed generous  of Mr. Smith, notwithstanding,the socialists to the contrary, and,in keeping with the noble spirit of the .heroes  in-, the labor movement who' are -at all  times willing to give up as much time  and money as they'can afford: to advance the cause of labor, knowing that  those represented can Ul afford' to pay  the expenses. Some mencain glve.nnore  lime than others and consequently the  movement is carried on and on and on.  Other union "men would do the same  were they; in a.- position to do so, and  think nothing about it. But it ls different Ywitih- the editor of the Socialist.  For I read that the executive of the socialist, party has ivoted him $75 to make  a trip, presumably for the purpose cf  knocking President Smith of theCana-  dian. Congress*.Anybody can afford "to  talk socialism at the expense of.his  friends. One thing noted over here is  that all union haters are enemies of  Ralph Smith,- especially the Dunsmuir  gang and the^ socialists.  '- UNION MINER FOR 21' YEARS  - Nanalmo, B. C��� Aug. 21, 1902.

BRITISH  WORKMAN.  Nanalmo, Aug. 20, 1902.  AGIN' VANCOUVER.  The Trades and Labor Council of Victoria have passed the following resolutions regarding the .heating of the  new government house in that city:  "Whereas���The contract ifor the heading of the'new government Jiouso Is-to  be let; and  Whereas���It Is said thait; the contract  Is about to ibe awarded to ai Vancouver  firm; be it -        <  "Resolved���Thait thls.cou&Jll;aippoint  a committee to act Iri conjunction .with  the Plumbers' union and use their best  endeavors to have said contract let to a  Victoria .firm; ibe It further  "Resolved���That it be on Instruction  to the cammltte to convey to the government .that the opinion of his council  is that all work of this nature should  be done by day labor, (under the supervision of a competent superintendent."  M0YER AT SILVERT0N.  TRADES AMD LABOR COUNCIL  "RALPH SMITH REJECTED."  To thoUdltor ol Tun I.vdki-kn'uent:  : Sir,���The .bolt has fallen, another man  ��� crucified for being a friend of. labor  "Balph Smith Rejected," pu'bllshed In  trig headlines. Whatever truth there  jnay be In the above, threats have been  heard for some-time'that it .was to happen. People were loth to (believe that  the (Miner's union would "turn down"  the one man of all 'men Jn Nanalmo  who has led the miners iby his good advice and example to hold a position in  -the ranks of organized labor of this  Dominion; second to none for their  kroadinlndedncss and liberality. -Now, at  this Juncture for them ,to refuse to.endorse the tried and itrue fnlend who has  -placed them where they tire to-day, by  ils own (personality, no ���'. (air-minded  person will  hesitate  to say  that .the  , Wow will come back to them with ter-  rifle force. I have been iniCormed,  whether rightly or not Is ..immaterial,  *hat this act of the Miners' union is the  trork of the sodnllate In the ranks of  MUN'IOIPAL MlAN'AGEMiBNT.  To the Editor of TiieIsdei-endknt:  Sir,���'Reformers ; sliould read the. two  ipamphlets entitled "Does Municipal  (Management Pay," and "To-day's  Work," from the Clarion office,.Fleet  street, London, Eng. . The authors make  quit a- strong case that In: municipal  .management lies the hope of the'iwork-  ~ei s~The~great ibetiellts"the"workersare  deriving through municipal trading In  .England (In giving thorn better dwellings and (better services, in Increasing  ���pay, reducing -hours and employing  .more hands,; in giving tlienva share An  the management through'- the-ballot  ibox, In reducing the rates, the workers  still bear the burden of rates and land-  values are still untaxed), Is creating a  social consciousness amongst them and  turning their;mind from the operating  'of'7 industries for iprlvate profit to the  operntlon' of, industries for the public  good. Evory successful- experiment in  this direction weakens .the power of the  capitalist and Increases the power of  the workers, and are the flrst necessary; steps from the competitive to the  co-operative system of society. , If we  nre to (prevent a bloody revolution wo  must advance step by step in harmony  with naitural evolutionary law. Along  a line of least; resistance marked out  .by the presence of detailed concrete  grievances und particular economies the  people can he ibrought to assist In tiie  realization of the substance of socialism *ar better than by flaunting wholesale "terns" in front of them. Of course  this .policy iwill not commend itself to  HALPH SMITH.  T.) the Editor of The Indki-kndent:'  Sir,���I .i regret- to state. that President  Ralph -Smith will not be a delegate to  this; year's ..convention of the Trades  and Labor ..'.Congress':'-.To say the least  this is.truly;the work of jealous-mini  cd labor. The pretense that the7 con  gress is of ,no practical; use to the miners ;ls: only a -vaneer-to cover up the  diabolical wonk of. fanatical and intolerant ��� socialists and political heelers,  which I am loth to say honey-comb the  miners' union of this city, and if som  thing is not soon done: they will have  no union/Ralph Smith has always  steered a clear and,Independent course,  and the fact that he ��ls; compelled to  associate, with politicians at Ottawa  will not condemn him in the eyes of  honest men. 'We have elected him to  parliament,, and the labor people of  Canada' have chosen; him three times  as the leader of organized labor, which  fact alone speaks volumes for the Integrity of this great labor leader. If  we in Canada will noKsupport our national congress, it; Is a dead sure thing  that the Americans won't do it. I believe the policy of union men should bi  to'build up our own organization rather  than tear it down. But they think different here'. *   *   *  Nanaimo, Aug. 32, 1902.  (By Our: Own Correspondent.)  On Thursday, August 14th,. the members of iSllverton (Miner's union had the  pleasure of listening to a: very fine address -from the lips of their new; president, Ohas. H. Moyer, who succeeded  Edward Boyce as chief executive of the  Western Federation of Miners. Mr.  Moyer, a careful, eloquent speaker, and  ���the very antithesis of .what some of our  friends have lieen .pleased to call "the  Ignorant foreign agitator," dealt exhaustively with the relation! of the federation to the working class, ibrlefly but  'effectively hammering the present policy of the A. F. of L., and outlining  the causes that led to the formation of  the western la'bor union. ,A clean, moderate speech, without sensationalism or  badkneyed stock phrases.  ^Mr.iJ.A.CBaker,.representative of the  executive board for district No. 6, followed, dealing;more (particularlyfwith  the recent Fernie strike and other matters of Interest "within his jurisdiction.  A. W. Carey, president of Silverton  Miners' tinlon, occupied the chair.  Both speakers created a very favorable impression and their hearers were  deeply pleased to Iind at the head of  the federation men of such ability and  moderation, and more particularly so  as they had been led to 'believe that  both of the gentlemen were inclined to  be extreme in some of their .'/views,  MACADAMS' HOME-COMING.  SENID BOM TO THE CONGRKSS.  To tho Editor of The lNDKri.NDU.NT:  Sir,���I see by the papers that Mr.  Ralph Smith, of Nanalmo, will not go  to the congress, this year.-, I.am sorry  for that. He has done such good work  for us and has declared for and worked  hard for a Canadian labor movement.  AVe know It from experience that this  is necessary' when we are compelled to  deal with big bodies like thc C. P. Ii.,  for they always say we are controlled  by foreigners. ��� The bill for compulsory  arbitration on railways will come up  this year, and we can't afford to lose  the services of such a valuable mnn in  tlie congress. Surely Nanaimo, If not  for- their own saikes, will for thc sake  of organized labor In Canadn, see its  way to send him to the congress this  year. RAILWAY EMPLOYEE.  RevelstoCke, B. C, Aug.

To the Editor ol The Ikdh-endekt : ��� -  Sir,���How would It heto start a Canadian labor union ln opposition to the  American labor union, which has such  a cynch ln Nanalmo. Ralph Smith, lt  opears, is too British (or the miners  (By Our Own Correspondent.)  The people of Sandon, being addlctad  to the ihablt of enjoying themselves on  'every possible occasion, like the lriliabl  tants of a south ot Ireland village,;sei  dom showed up to .better : advantage  than they did on Thursday hist, .when  they turned out to welcome home  "Billy", MacAdams, after his sojourn in  'Victoria,;oh the quest of his Britannic  majesty. Owing to there having been  a wreck on the Nakusp and Sandon  'branch, there was some doubt as to the  party getting to Sandon at the advertised time. However, 'Mr. Angus J. McDonald, chairman of the reception committee, with a-handcar, a string of  saddle-horses, and a little persuasion,  successfully landed "Billy" MacAdams  and-F.-J���Deane, editor-of-the-Nelson  Daily, News, with their suite,. In Sandon at the appointed time. As the half  dozen or so horses came flying up the  flumed main street of Sandon the cheering crowd that awaited the-travellers  looked bigger and a more excited one  thanhad (been congregated since that  day two years ago when the flre ilend  turned the town into a .wilderness of  smoke and ashes.  The more formal part of the reception  took' place In the auditorium, miners'  union blook, and as a dance was billed  to folllow the, addresses, the ladles  were there In full dress, war: paint,  feathers and all���a fact wihlch helped  not a little. Mr. F. J. Deane, of Nelson,  Iri a short, neat speech reviewed ;tho  trial, conviction and subsequent roleaie  bf the Paystreak editor/from the standpoint of a brother newspaperman.  IMr. James Wllks, of Nelson, ever polished and  forcible, followed.  Wm. MacAdams, although he made a"  brave, attempt to treat the affair in  a semi-humorous manner, could not  succeed in (hiding the deep feeling that  agitated him nor the sincere gratitude  he felt towards those who had turned  out to welcome him to his home.  There was a good attendance of delegates at Thursday night's meeting of  the Trades and La'bor Council. President Lamrlak was ln the ohalr, and  Secretary. Cross was also in his place.  There,was quite, an amount of routine  business transacted. But7 the most Important was the receiving of the resignation of Mr. Joseph H. Watson as  a delegate to the council and chairman  of the orgarilaztlon :'committee. Bro.  'Watson was one of the hest workers on  the board, and lt was With deep regret  that the council learned that he ; had  made up his mind to wlthdraw^from its  counsels. When It "is tonown that he  has organized; some 27 unions In this  city,/ It .will ��� readily.,ibe seen what an  Indefatigible; and energetic worker he  has been, and the loss the council was  a'bout to sustain. Bro. Watson-was a  boiler-maker iby trade,' and came to this  iolty In 1887 and worked for the C. P. R  almost everislnce. But' in the fall ot  1899 -he was offered and accepted a position in the customs house, where he ls  at (present employed, ; He became an  aotive wortcer in- the Trades and Labor  Council some eight years.ago, as7 a  | delegate from the late American Railway Union, of which body Eugene" V.  iDebs' was then itsrhonored president.  In July, 1898, he,was"chosen:president  of the Vancouver Trades" and Labor  Council, and twas_ one of. its representatives to the Wlnnlipeg.sesslon'of; the  'Dominion Trades and Lalbor Congress,  and was last year elected ias vice-president of that 'body. He haibeen chair-  manof the organizing committee since  a898and has most creditablyifllled that  position ever since; Bro.: Watson. also  aided ex-Secretary F. Williams in raising the funds wherewith to purchase  the present Union hall, now the property of organized labor In this city.  Bro. Watson has always given his  time to the cause of.labor gratuitously,  which is a standing testimony to his  sterling worth as a peer among union  men'. Is'it then any wonder that'the  following "resolution was passed unanimously; .  "Resolved���That the resignation ot  Bro. Watson be received with regret,  and that tlie secretary be. instructed to  acknowledge his. communication; and  expiess to hlni the sincere thanks ot  the council for the most valuable services he has rendered organized labor  In this city and province."

"Well, Dr. Forney has got to come  to tho point pretty soon, for we shall  not slay here more than two weeks  longer. I wonder if ho will follow ug  up to Newport?"  CHAPTER XII.

Hor elder child was washing dishes  at a table in a corner of tho room, and  littlo Polly was leaning against the  doctor's knoo, while his flngors played  with hor curly, light hair.

'"So yon are tho 'Other Lady?' " ho  said.   "I suspected it."  "Did you?"  she  asked  surprised.  "What made you?"  Ho laughed at her guilnlessness.  "Did you know ono   another all  this time?"  Mrs.   Ryan  said,   with  wide-eyod curiosity.  "Wo live in tho samo house, Mrs.  Ryan," he answered.  "If you are going to the village,"  ho said to Mira, "I will go with you  part way. may i?"  So thoy loft the cabin andjj walked  away together.  "Can tho operation bo performed  the day after to-morrow?" sho asked,  as they tramped through the woods  under groat pine trees in the lovely  sunuuor morning air. ,  "Yes;.I shall telegraph to Boston  for a caso of instrumouts.

"I had a rcasou. Perhaps it was  not a very sensiblo one.''  "Does it exist still?   Do you wish  I did not kuow you  to be  tho Lady  Bountiful?"  "I am reconciled to your discovery.  When did you suspect mo?"  " When I read  tho  lottor you sent  mo by mistake."  "You read it all?" she quickly asked.  "Not all, no.   But enough to; make  mc suspect.''  ;.' "Suspect what?"  "Little Inquisitor! It mado me  siiBpcct that in some respects you were  not what you protended to bo."  "What did I protoud-to.be?"  " Why did you not confess to me."  ho returned, "that you wero the  'Othor Lady,'when I first spoko to  vou of that magnanimous individual?"  "But what mado you so promptly  decide that the 'magnanimous individualWas Miss Halo?' "  "To bo perfectly frank with you, I  did not suppose that you wero rolling  in cash to such a degree as to he ablo  to deal with magnates liko Dr. Traine  of Now York. And. as for Miss Halo,  I did know her to bo quite able j ns that"  to afford such larks. Now am I to  havo ah answer to my quostiou? Why  did~vou not confess yourself-to be -tho-  Bouofactor?"  "I shrank from it, .somehow. I do  not know just why. Tlio other night  ou tho beach, I fully intoudod to tell  you, but when it camo to tho point,  I could not 'scrow my courage to the  sticking point.' "  "I supposo if it had been some fault  that you had committed, you would  havo boon all too hasty with your con-'  fession."  "I should uot havo boon bo cowardly, I am sure, about .confessing a  crime!

Why don't you let  nie pay you for your  attendance  on  Mrs. Ryan, just as I  was  going to  pay Dr. Traine;"  "Why won't I?" Ue asked, looking  at her curiously. ''Then;you take it  for granted that I will not?"  "I don't see why 'yon should not.  But I just know you won't."  "That goes without saying. .But  any wny, why -should you pay .mo?

"It is a strange, strnnge world, isn't  it," Mini snid, musingly, "with its  horrible inequalities of opportunity,  and its wasted livos, aud its irromed-  ialilo sufferings."  "Those are its asternal aspects." ho  gravely answered. "No lifo need bo  wretched whatever its environment.  Let the quality of tho lifo bo divine,  niul it will impress a divinity upon  the meanest surroundings. Some of  the greatest, tho most roally successful lives ever lived on our littleplauet  must havo seemed, to superficial observers, to bo miserably wasted.

"But neither Optimism nor Pessimism  seems to me to seo the Whole truth.

But���you and I arc in isympa-  thotic touch, and that; is the stimulant wo feel!" ho responded, with a  warmth in his tono that brought hor  over-roadv color to her face. There  were times whon he felt it to be an  imcertiuenco to look at her, so helplessly did lier toll-tale couiitohani-o reveal w-hat she would not for the  world havo spoken... Just now, as his  glance rested for a moment upou hor,  ho suddenly know with a throb of  wild joy at his heart, that their advancing friendship niennt more to her  than sho would willingly havo nc-  knowleged to him: Not that ho supposed her to be falling in lovo with  him! Ho had not yet advanced so far  The sudden joy ho experienced in his quick intuition of, her  growing nearness to himself was an  "impulscrunreasoiiing and-ptissionato.���  Thoy had reached the outskirts of  the village, and now, by mutual cou-  eout, thoy paused to separate  "I must go to tho telegraph office,"  she said, and ho saw that she wished  to go alono.  "And I am going for tho morning's  mail, ho rotumed, "so I shall leave  you hero. I shall bo at thu telegraph  olllco, too, lator. When shall you go  back to tho cottage?"  "I have a good deal to attend to for  Mrs. Ryan���probably I shall not go  out until noon���mid then I must stop  nt tho cabin."

"No, thank you; if you will leave  my mail at tho poslotllco, I shall call  for it���I havo to stop tliero to buy  somo stamps."  So thoy wont thoir separate ways.  CHAPTER XIII.  "What a wolcome diversion letters  are, in this tiresoino old 'place," exclaimed Florence Halo, as Forney, n  few hours later, came up Iho stops of  the poTch with a package of mail and  joined hor nnd hor aunt. i. lorenco  wns sitting in a- hammock with' a  novel in her lap, and Miss Matthews  was comfortably rocking hor portly  solf in n largo arm-chair. It was  nearly noon and they wore both look  ing very worm and drowsy.  "And you have brought me jnst  the ones I wanted'!' cried the girl  delightedly. 'Hero is ono from Isa-  bol Romaino, Aunt Louise! She is at  Bar Harbor:" :     r  She spread it open, leaned back in  her hammock, and gavo horself up to  enjoyment. .  Forney handed Miss Matthows hor  New York and Boston papers, iind sat  down near Flornnco to glance ovor  his own lotters.  They road in, silonco for a while, tho  quiet being broken only by an occasional littlo lansh from Florence, or a  light noise in her thront expressive of  delight or chagrin.  Sho finished reading hor letter,  returned it to its envelope, and was  jnst. taking np another, when an exclamation from Miss Mntthow's made  hor tintl Dr. Fornov, too, look up  with a start."  "Why, my senses I Gracious! Did  you ever!"  "Door iuo, Aunt, have you got a  fit?   What's tho imirtor?"  The old lady was staring rather  wildly at the nowspapcr.  "What has happened?" exclaimed  Florence, suddenly startled. She  jumped up, went, to her aunt's chair  and looked over her shonldor at the  paper.  "Woll?" aRked Forney.  "Oh J" said-.'the girl,   breathlossly.  "Why,! How'surprising! But, any  way, Aunt," sho added, with a shrug,  as sho turned away aud went back to  hor hammook, "it isn't anything to  score me about! You frightened me  so! I thought something hod happened to papa."  She  looked    aunoyod and frotted,  and sho spoke petulantly.  | "Am I to hear what it is?" Forney  demandod.  "Do toll him, Aunt Louise," -Florence said, impatiently. "I think myself it is a mistake���it must bo!"  "It can't be," solomuly affirmed  Miss Matthows.  With a tragic movement she handed  him the paper, "Tho description of  her is unmistakable," she said to  Florence. *.'t should haverccognizea  it oven if the name had not been  given. Tho article says she rofused  to have hor picture in tho papor."  He took tho papor. and his eyes fell  upon great, 'startling'headlines:  THE FAIR YOUNG HEIRESS  ��� TO SIXTEEN MILLIONS.

Percival Rankin, a Moravian Clergyman Who Died in Australia in 1876.  The color left Forney's face, and the  paper dropped to his knee. Ho looked  at tho yvomon \beforo him. Thoir  countenances woro a curious study���  .hearing, a'ii expression of mingled bewilderment, eagerness, and chagrin  that would have baffled aii artist.  Floronce: was regarding him ovidontly  with a fixed 'determination' to rend in  his faco the effect upon him of this  surprising intelligence.  "I wonder," ho thought, "what she  does see in my face���or what sho imagines sho socs? What does she expect to soo?"  A half-bitter smile camo to his lips;  he know fairly woll what she would  look for in him, under the. circumstances, and for an instant his soul  loathed hor. But it was ouly for an  instant. His nature was' too broad  to admit of unclinritablencss, and his  momentary disgust was quickly followed by an impulse of pity for her  chenp, poor life which could, find its  highest ends in the possession of great  wealth with tho power and iufluonco  that follow in tho train theroof.  ''Isn't it surprising?" Miss Matthews cried. "And sho takes it so very  humbly���why I nover should have  suspected it from anything in her  maimer all these weeks 1"  "How would you have expected her  to act?" Fornoy asked with a faint  smile.  ' * Woll, I should ; hnvo looked for���  for__somethiug   different,   shouldn't  you?   Sho is so quier~~~rd~sh"y7"~  He observed that her customary  haughty: disapproval. in speaking of  Miss Rankin, was changed to a tone  of respect which ho know would have  been too much for his gravity had he  been in a mood to be amused at anything.  "She is not roally shy at all," .lie  said. "Sho has boon absorbed and  absent-minded. Any way, wo gave  hor small opportunity to bocomo acquainted with us, don't you think  so?"  "It is too bad," Miss Matthows im-  pulisvoly oxclnimed, "that wc havo  not paid moro attontion to her I"  "Why?" ho quickly inquired.  "Would you havo treated her differently if you had known of - this?"  touching tho papor on his knoo.

Tho mnin point io be noted- in  learning ..basket halt, with a. vic\v0ot  becoming an expert player, is tlmt a;  stiviii-ht, clean gnincmust bu played,  One. must'' lewn to cnlth'tlio bull  surely, to pass-very quickly, and to  stop whi'ti running a', full arced im-  ii-o Mutely upon rei-i'i.itijf the hull.  Thi'.hrst wny to receive n ball,is hy  jumping for it nnd limiting stjunroly  on both feet. 'I h;.s will iivptito a  Rival, deal of practice- and uood jutig-  uii'.nt so us not to'strike: im opponent and thus be j'leiuilined for ilui'g-  in.cr. 'Iho game uf biis'nct bull is a  poor gnmc indeed if there is much individual.playing, but .the game is improved from u spectator's', standpoint, and is faster tintl better in every wny" if there is much quick passing.; Therefore, you should -.endeavor  to receive the hull and pass it to  one of, your own men as jjiiickly as  possible. The most elTei-tutil passing  is successful when it is passed from  H* third or fourth; mnn, who, of  course, must be in the forward line,  and should he close in timlcr the basket, if possible, where ho will be freo  from his check to get a clear shot  at tho basket. To pass the ball to a  second player docs not usually give  him a clear shot at the basket,- but  hy the time the .'third or fourth man  receives it invariably that man is unchecked and nothing is to hinder him  from scoring, if he is a good shot.  Dribbling' the bail lis a ..feature of the  gamo .which has been largely cut out.  because: of the roiigli pluy, but sometimes when a person gets tho ball  everyone of. his team is checked and  hu cannot pass, then a dribble is,necessary in order to give the men a  chance to get uncovered; The man  who is going to dribble veryi much in  tho game should always try to stop  the ball with one htiud,; then if you  dribble you are ut liberty to catch  it with both hands and pass, so al  not. to violate rule 11, section 18.  Tho next good point in tlio game  is that of quick passiitg in from out  of" touchi "Vhon "time' is lost by tho  players it; slows the gamo down, and  makes it uninteresting. Another  thing, if you urc quick in getting tho  ball in, and your men are -quick to  receive tho ball from you, you very  often can got in a position unchecked, and -thus have n clear try' for a  goal. If the ball io batted out; : of  touch by you, do not struggle for tha  ball whehyou know it'should not bo  yours, drop it at once, and leave it  for your opponent and get into your  own position. Bit: clean , and manly,  and help your oflicUils in.carrying out  Uie spirit of the (.'hnie.  Sly next suggestion would be thnt  you ;do not,practice shooting; while  standing still, but practice moving  about the floor uml shooting the  breast shot, ! that .is, both hands  holding tho ball about, level with the  breast, jumping squiircly from both  feet, throwing tho ball high and  dropping it clearly into theii basket.  Do not'depend on the'carro'm:.or. re-  bound'shot from7 tho wall or screen,  for when you piny on your opponent's territory you will not bo  acquainted with these, and thus  you will be unable to shoot, but  practice throwing tho ball: high, and  getting it into the basket independent of tho surrounding walls or  posts.  Now, in closing, there are just two  things that I would strongly urge  upon all who play the game and lm-  tend to play for some timo and aro  anxious to bo good players. First,  always remember that it is theman  who sees defeat staring him in the  f.aic who becomes rough and ungen-  tlemnnly, and begins to.-plny.i-'.dirty"  ball. Do not ever relinquish tho  gamo until time is up, no , matter  what the score is, and always play  tho same clean game whether you win  or lose. If you lose people will praise  you for your manner of playing, and  in your own solf you will feel that  your game was clean. If you win you  will realize tbat you have won honestly.  The last; point is that of assisting  tbo officials. Do not try to do anything but what is right. Be straight.  If you bat the ball out;of touch do  not try to get it, leave it for your  opponent.Mf you run with the ball  do not. protest the oflicers' decision,  but-pass-tliQ-baU-immcdiately_to-tlie  captain of the' opposing tenui; so  that ho may take;his free throw. Do  not over address an official unless you  aro tho captain of tho team. The  old adngo which says, "Say nothing  but saw wood,", ie strictly truo with  basket ball. Say nothing, but play  the game.���J. Ho-nard Crocker.  Hlgr Chance in Ident sine* Than.

Although Panama hats  have been made by the Indians of  Central America for 200 and possibly  5100 years, it is only until comparatively recent years' that-they have  been much in vogue in Canada, where  they ure now quite the fad for summer wear.  Formerly pantvma hats were 'woven  upon round blocks with a crease like  that Jn a pair of trousers running  through tho centre of the crown. The  shape did not suit the fancy of fashionable young men, nnd then- use  was mainly confined.to staid elderly  gentlemen. Some years. ago an ingenious dealer in Guayaquil, which  is .the shipping point of Ecuudor.had  a fe'.v dozen hat!s woven in the.fedora  w alpine shape. These he sent to London, and one of them was ptesented  to the Prince of Wales Their success was instantaneous and overwhelming, and they sold at a tremendous figure.  Later panama hats of this shape  were sent to Canada, wheto they  were received with no less favor than  m England. The deimjid for Panama, alpine and fodota hats has  grown maivclously since then as indicated by the immense shipments  fiom this and otlier Central American ports.  The genuine panama hats are made  >by the Indians���old men, women and  children���in: the interior: of Ecuador,  from whence the "best come, and   of  BUILT 24 YEARS AGO.

SA'BUKDAY AUGUST 23, l'JD2  The next great event to enchain the  attention or thc woitkinff people ot this  u'ly .is the Laibor Day celebration at  Naiitilnio.  several of the presidents of the leading  companies In the United States find the  Dominion  of Canada,   including   Mr.  Charles M.  Schwab, president of the  United   States  Steel Corporation,  and  the International prcBlden-ts of the leading labor ibodios,  including'   Mr.  John  Mitchell, of the United Mine Workers,  and 'Mr. XV. A. Jackson, of the International Brotherhood of Electnlual Workers, nnd representatives from the great  rallwiiy .international la'bor unions. The  following are some of the  topics for  discussion:   "Economic   effcets   of the  eight-hour day," "The establishment of  the .eight-hour system, where, how ani  uihen."   "Docs purchasing    power depend upon the pi��l" table employment of  many7"   "The  ohlhl   labor    problem,  "Aitbltriutlon vs. Strike as a means of  settlement,"  "Competition  as    effect-id  by foreign manufacturers," "Protectloi  of workmen untl workwomen Iu tholr  employment,"   "Present -Hiatus of employers'  liability in 't'he United Stat?s  and the Dominion," "How to   improve  the home surroundings and educational  advantages of the working man."  $+*"''������ �� ��$$.�� .4)4) s i^ a o4)4)  It is to be regretted that tlie miners  of Nanaimo at this particular Juncture  in the history of tlie labor movement  in Canada has seen lit to sever Its connection with the 'i'itides and Lab.r Congress of Canada. Their main excuse  gWen to the public is that tlie advantages derived from the congress were  but few; that If their union .were allill-  ated with -some other organization, such  as 'the Western Miners' Union, or the  American federation of La'bor, in case  of trouble it would be from organizations such us .these that Jielp would be  derived. Thc work of the congress has  always been , of a legislative character, rather than an institution for  the purpose of caiTjiiivg on strikes.  There is nothing to prevent llie miners  of Nanalmo from joining the Western  Miners' Union or American Federation  ot Labor, and at tho saute time sending  ;i representative to our own national labor congress. President Ralph Smith,  of the Canadian Congress, is too well  known to make the excuse of the  miners stick, e.-i]>eclally on tha eve ot  the meeting of the congress. Whatever  may be the liwle local bickerings at  Xanalmo, the la'bor movement of Canada should not be .made to sufior thereby. The work of the congress since its  inception in 1STS, none will deny, has  been a nun vol for good. 11 has ibeeti  lnslruuA'.ilul In having placed many  beneficial laws on our stutiMe books,  which fact is .but the beginning of the  t-ilondld mission it has undertaken to  l .!il.

The cQnifitlons surrounding the- death  of Pinnei-iin, which 'took place last K:-.t-  ut-day afternoon ln tho local jail,  should make the people of this city  blush.

It is to lie hoped  thut every union in the city will recognize  the importance of doing till in its power  to make the occasion memorable, 'iiow  they appear���in dress ami in numbers  ���will lmve Hindi to do with tlieir  standing and power in this community.  No organization, no matter how small  can al'l'onl to neglect, its duty on the  coming holiday. This day belongs to  Labor.  Its observance depends entirely ujhjii  tlie interest manifested by the trade  organizations of tlie city. The day does  not lieloiig-lo.orgauizcil lii.b_o_r_tdone,_but  to the unorganized as well. It is a day  fur reflection und education as well as  for recreation and rest. Let not the day  be iiiriunpoli/.L'd by a parade uud sports  and games. It was given birth for  something better. Let il. fi'uch the  workers the necessity of organization.  Ixit it tell to them that the trade  movement means more than tin effort  for shorter hours am! higher wages, but  tlint with a closer unity of producers and  a concerted action cnu lie secured better  homes, u higher civilization uml greutor  intelligence.  May it teucli the isolated unions tlint  little can bo gained by "goinj* it alone,"  but by a closer union uud affiliation the  greatest good cun lie done for ull." The  ideal labor federation is on the "community nf interest', plan. It will carry  the motto, "un injury to one is the  concern of all."  Labor day tends .to distroy craft  jealousies, and encourages the cloaest  unity between the humblest laborer and  the proudest mechanic. Tha interests  of both are identical.

"When Greeks joined Greek* then was  the lug of "war."   So the woodworkers  f>  and lionwoikeis again met In friendlv  combat, and all eyes were upon them.  Once the Iionworkeis were within an'  Inch of winning.   It was close, but then  the woodworkers won.   Following were  the teams:  Woodwotkers-4Messis. Gilchrist, La\i,  Miller, Grieves,.

'All competltois were good  nntured und realized that but one could  win the trophy. Those veteran judges  of beauty, Messrs. T. Reed and XV, Little had their task cut out for them, and  wished that about 40 prizes could bs  given. Before they were half thiough  they teallzed that truism, '"babes hitth  Judgment .shown whon" Judges hav  been Imbes." In short they weie up  against the "real thing," They retlrad  after shaking hands with all the babies  present, from the platform to the bush  near by, to talk about the wee .pretty  faces. It .was not long 'before a courter  bold appeared and announced amid- applause that 'little May Gordon, the  daughter of Mrs. Chas. Gordon, 313  Hastings street, won the prize.

You ought to have seen the ladies'  woodsawing contest. The small boy  was there, and he called out, "Boy9;  here's your chance for a wife."  In lieu of bucksaws, hand cross saw.3  were used by the ladles in the wood-  sawing contest, and two ladles were  noticed with rip sa-ws, but nevertheless  they made the sawdust fly.  Charlie Gordon was the proudest man  on the grounds. His young daughter  captured honors In the ibaibles' beauty  contest. ' -  "Billy" Rae makes a good floor manager.  Engineer Clouston was noticed In the  mazy waltz. He says he's up on himself as a dancer.  Mayor Stacey welcomed the picnickers and assured them that Port Haiin-  mond was strictly prohibition, and this  proved to be no joke.  Tho committee wish to retui n its sia-  cere thanks to the liberal donors of the  pi!zes.for the sports. ' ,  Tack, tack, tack-a, ta-tack, the hammers cracked. The ladles driving nails  in a long plank was a marvelous exhibition of feminine skill. Of course some  will" lose their flngrer nails, but then  a little thing like that don't cut much  Ice. Each lady had six nails and one  had seven to drive. Some laid them all  together on the giound, and some put  them iin their mouth, while others hold  them in ithelr hand.  NANAIMO!

''  The London Council's 'working-class  dwellings and the Parker street lodging house comprise ithls year ~,"1 tenements, S3S eottages, and 324 cubicles,  providing accommodation lor a. total of  15,032 persons, whilst those mentioned,!a  the previous year's accounts comprised  2,041 tenements, 305 cottages and 321  cubicles, providing accommodation for  1'2,1'JB jiersons. .  The itntal gross Income for the year  amounted to ��5S,0SS -Ijs. Cd., and of this  ��53,~13 Its. -Id., or 91.S3 per cent., wa-"-  requited 'for outgoings during the year,  as against 91.70 per cent, required dining tihe year 1900-1. Theie ^s thus a surplus balance' on tlie year's -working of  ,C 1.7-13 ls. 2d.  After ipaying for all repairs that have  become necessary to maintain the dwellings in a pioper condition, a sum oi  ��11,10.1 12s. remains to the credit of th?  ropatts and renewals fund, as compared with a sum of ��8,934 l��s. 2d. last  year. This fo.-ms a good reserve to  meot the .hen let- eNpe'isos under thin  head, which may be expected as t'ie  dwellings 'become older.  -In some ten cases difficulty has been  experienced In lotting tenements, notably at Battersea Bridge buildings, but  on the whole the average loss of rent  -by empties has been comparatively  small._= =   LABOR I-N THE OLD SOD.  Apparently the labor unions In South  "Wales, Great Biitain, are   at   piesont  engaged in one of the severest struggles  in their history, and one that Is of vital  Inteiest to unionism    throughout   the  woild.  (A correspondent   gives us the  following extract from a letter he has  just received from a large  and veiy  'wealthy shipowner in South Wales, and  wherein its writer says:   "There Is  a  great action 'by the coal owners agalnsi  the Miners' Federation, claiming ��70,(Wfl  ($3.10,000) as these fellows were stopping  work occasionally by the order of the  executive.  -If the coal owners pull this  oft it will revolutionize Wales unionism,  that is if they can secure their funds."  It is amusing to note the arrogant manner in which those old country capitalists icfet- to  any action of organized  labor and the wonder they display that  "such fellows" should    dare   to lebef  against them.   Verily at no distant dale  will   they  be   rudely   awakened.   The  sympathy of organized la'bor throughout this 'Dominion will be extended to  t'he South Wales Miners' Federation In  theii struggle, although in view of the  recent decision by the house of lords  .in tlie Taff Vale Railway company case  It is difficult to see how they can successfully  leslst.   It would seem  as  if  South Wales Is to be made the theatre  of many contests of absorbing interest  to trades unionism all the woild over  Without doubt one effect ot,these actions will -be  to compel    the working  men  to devlsa a way by which 'they  may enter the realm of practical politics,    without    interfering   with    their  piesent otganizations, and so obtain le-  strlke to gain better conditions and a  fair wage. , ,  Last week it -was announced ,by the  citizens' ��� committee of, New Haven,  Conn., that they regarded the tiolley  strike as -practically settled. The oillcers of the company decided to retain  the discharged men and the strikers  agreed to return to work if the company would agree In "the future' to meet  a committee of the employees.  The carmen's ordinance of San Francisco, -which forbids local companies  placing their cars In charge of conductors, grlpmen or -motormen not of pro/'  ed competency, has Anally passed- the  Board of Supervisors .by a Tote of 12  to 3.  President Mitchell has consented to  serve on the board which will arbitrate  the differences between the Scranton  Electric railway company ��ind Its employees. ,   ,  JOURNEYMEN BARBERS'  INTERNATIONAL   UNION,   No.   120-Presldcnt.

'At o. meting of the Boilermakers' and  Iron Shipbuilders' union, held In Labor  hall Monday night, at Victoria, the recommendation of tlie committee which  met Mr. Seabrook, manager of the Albion Iron iWorks, t��is adopted, wliicn  means that the strike lias ended, an 3  hereafter the -boiler sliopa of the Albion  will *e known ��s uttlon shops.  lief from their oppiessois.  PLAN TO   END COA'L   MINERS'  STRIKE.  President Roosevelt has In his hands  a jiian submitted by Martin Dolphin,  former -president of tlie International  Order of Railroad and Commei cial Tel-  egiaphers, by which Mr. Dolphin thinks  the strike ln the anthracite coal region  could .be ended. Piesldent Roosevelt  has leferred the matter to the attorney  general's department.  This plan is to have the government  exercise the right of eminent domain  and seize a certain number of the mines  and operate them for the purpose of  taking out all the hard coal required  by the'government in its various buildings, on the ships of the navy department, and for,all othei governmental  puiposes.  'Mr. Dolphin contends that the right  ot the government to intenveae In a  sti Ike which Interferes In any way with  the governmental functions was proved  by President Cleveland's action in the  Chicago strike of 1893, when he ordered  out United -States tioops to keep the  strikers from interfering with the  tianspontntlon of the malls.  In theipiesent case intervention ofthe  kind tie advocates, Mi. Dolphin says,  would alto break the backbone of the  strike -by forcing the operators to resume work in all  tho mines.

It wm  tbe bonst of tbe proprietor tbat he hnd  the handsomest lot of waitresses on  the rood,7 and the queen of the collection wns Fanny MeCann. That's how  she happened to be head waitress, for  tbo could not know much of the business. Sbe bad come to the place partly because her widowed mother was  poor and partly to gratify a.consuming  desire to pose as the prettiest girl  there, for she bad been consulting her  mirror.   ���  Tbe fireman frowned, but took a scat  next to tbe proprietor of tbe Mint Ju-  ��� lep. Tbe fireman's face, newly washed and hnrdly rubbed, glistened In the  glare of the electric light and the  same light played upon tbe Jeweled  hands and Immaculate shirt front of  the Julep man. The fireman bowed  coldly, nnd the other, feeling a certain  , superiority In tbe matter of dress and  personal appearance, smiled.  The bend waitress, taking a position  at one of the windows, stood looking  at the two men, both of whom had  made love to hor. Sbe had purposely  seated thoni so ns to get their facesin  one frame, as It were, for she bad been  unable to forsake one nnd cleave to  the otlier. Sbe respected the fireman���  ehe had loved hlni once and bad acknowledged oit, to blm���but she was  dazzled by tbe handsome, well groomed proprietor of the Mint .lulcp. Once  or twice the fireman ventured to look  tip, but each time be saw ber gazing  upon bis rival, and bis henrt wns filled  ���with dread.  "What time shall I call?" he asked  as Fanny banded hlni lils ticket.  "Not before 9.   I detest being first hi  a ballroom."  "Suppose we say 8:30?   It will be 0  by tbe time we reach the ball."  "Nine," said Fanny, nodding at the  'Julep, ninn'ns he passed out with his  chinchilla thrown gracefully over his  shoulders.  "But I'm on the reception committee  "That's too bad."., said Fanny, with  provoking carelessness.  "Oh. I don't know.' Where there are  ��o manv smooth runs and pmootb runners there must always be a few  wrecks nnd failures."  Fanny yawned and ended It with n  forced, half apologetic laugh.  "Fanny." snld the fireman,   I want  to ask you one question, before I go,  nnd I would like a frank. ���. honest on-  swer."  "Well?"  "Do you love me?"  "I hnve said tbnt I did.' .  "And you hnve nlwnys shown that  you do not" .  "Then why do you bbIc me.'  "For your answer.   If you can say  trutbfiilly tbnt you love roe now. I  shall trust you." . .,  "Oh, you don't need to trust, me_"f  you don't wnut to! I nm sure I never  asked you to.   Good night!"  "Fanny," exclaimed the fireman ns  he stretched bis amis over the gate,  ,"ls this tbe end of my dreams?"  Tbo .girl twisted the littic gold engagement ring from her finger and  thrust It across the gate. Now the  fireman wondered that he hnd not noticed till now tbe beautiful diamond  that sparkled even lu the pale moonlight  *    .. �� ������    *       ��       ���    '.�����.'.'.��  Fanny bad Just returned from the  little stony graveyard tlint had grown  up witb tbe town. Her husband, the  Hint Julep man, was no more. His  light had gone out lu the midst of delirium, and bis body had been scut  back cast to bis people.  Suddenly she caught sight of some  men carrying a man on a stretcher  from the train across the river to tho  hospital.  "Engineer hurt!" shouted n freckled  boy, going past tho cottage proudly  spreading the news.  "'Who Is it?"  "Dunno," said tbe boy, without slowing down.  "\'es, It's him," said Fanny's mother,  coming back from one of the neighbors. "Caught under his; engine; leg  broken and badly scalded."  Fanny put her chin In her hand, and  the tears began to run down her pale  face. If only she could go to him.  But sbe had no right Besides, be  might not cnre to have her. She bnd  scon him but once since tbey, parted In  the moonlight nt the gnte. That was  tho dny ber baby was burled.

GRAIN AND PRODUCE. ���  This- has been an active week in  the speculative wheut markets of  America. Nevertheless in spite of  the activity there has been very little change in values from a week ago.  Tho market seems to be chieflyinllu-  encod by tho changes of weather over  tho Western States.     ' .  Recently and at the present timo  tho winter wheat crop in thc States  has been in procesn of harvesting under unfavorable circumstances owing  to abnormally wot weather and tt  good deal of tho early 'harvestod  wheat ls of poor quality and condition. At the same time feed grain is  scarce and dear so that It goes-with-  out saying that a largo quantity of  this poor wheat will bo used for  feed and to curtail tho quantity- othei wlso available for milling and export. Australia has liud a drought  leceiilly which although since partially relieved scorns to preclude tho  expectation of that country bolng an  porter, noxt yeur,. and in tho meantime sho. has been importing both  wheat and flour on a small scale.  India is is about tho same predicament as to the prospect for tho coming' season's wheat crop. Argentina  may have a much larger crop next  jear, but the seed for it has just  gone into tho ground. The consumption of wheuten broad is believed to  have considerably increased in re1'  cent times,'so that taking the situation 'altogolher thoro seems reason  to, expect that present prices will,  hold up well during tho ensuing 12  months and probably even iind a  higher pormanent level until tho  timo again comes when with increased acreage and the fortuno of a favorable season's supply will overlap  demand a decline again ensuo.  .Thero hus been only a quiot business in Manitoba wheat, but prices  havo hardened towards thc > close of  this week and latest values aro: 'No.'  1 hard, 77c; 1 northern, 75c; 2 northern, 73c, in store.

Ho wus a helpless cripple with lame  back, and for a long timo his wifo  had to lift him in and out of bed,  tho pain in his buck was so vory severe.  In this oxtromlty a friend's ndvlco  saved him.

Surely it must be  true.  So after somo deliberation they  decided to try, and now they arc'  vory much pleased that they did so,  for in a short timo Mr. -Warner's  backache had vanishod.

Thero is not a trace of lame back  remaining, not a singlo symptom,  and tho helpless man who usod to bo  a burden to himself and his wifo is  now strong and a comfort to his  faithful helpmate.   Ho says :  Wo havo used in all about twenty-  five boxes of Dodd's Kidney Pills,  and given somo away to our neighbors.

"Blackchaiiol" Is the sports' paradise  now. o  Sam Nesbltt, Vancouver, was a Seattle visitor this week also.  The parade on tlie opening day was  very disappointing to the public.  The carnival is in full .blast, and so  are a great many who attend it.  Mr. Simpson, of tho Savoy, ot Vancouver, was a visitor here this week.  All kinds of "grafts" ami "skin"  games aie to be found iin Seattle now.  A red light is .placed at the entrance  to all lire escapes, which is a good  tiling.  Bandmaster Wagner has moved from  his old home���the armory���to Summit  street.  The "P.-I." calls the Bulletin, of Sin  Francisco, a "yellow" journal. The  "P.-I." is so cruel.

The Interest In the  coming ol thu show this year Is most pronounced. In connection with the known lact  that tho peformances or Ringling licos.' circus  are always novel and strictly up to date. Is the  auouncetnent that this year's programme is  entirely new, and that the sensational acrobatic  aerial and spectacular features surpass In  magnitude anything erer before attempted  even by thc famous managers ol this (amous  show. As uaaal, circus day will be introduced  vv 1th a free street parade, but this year's dliplay  Is so superior to that of other seasons as to  constitute a distinct departure ln the line ot  procei-stonal pageantry. Ulngllng Hrothers'  street parade, this year, Is nut merely a parade.  It ts a free carulrul, with the classic pageantry  ol ancient home, the prismatic coloring ot a  Venetian leitiral and the merry mssijueraderle  of a Mardltiras harmoniously combined. Tho  parade takes place at 10 a. m. Tho initial  performance begins at 2 o'clock, The doors  will be open an hour earlier, and every  opportunity will be given visitors to examine  the magnificent collection of rare wild animals  for which'tingling ISros.' great oxhibltion is  famous. This superb zoological display attracts  especial attontlon this season from tbe fact  tbat It serves to pret>cnt the only specimen ot a  giraffe now known to exist, and a great herd 11  30 hlf and little elephants. Lovers of muile  will enjoy tho popular concerts given by  Ganweilcr's military band in the groat hippodrome pavilion during the hour preceding tbo  performances. Admirers of line horses will  have their cnthuslam aroused by John O'Brien's  litest horse speotaele, the gorgeous Equlno  Ballot Militant, which Introduces tbe splendid  three-ring circus performance of the big show.  This Is undoubtedly the greatest trained horse  display tbat tho world has ever seen, and It has  croatcd an unprecedented sensation. Thc ring  performance introduces SOO noted artists from  all parts of tho world, in thrilling nnd unusual  displays of ncrobuilsm, equestrianism and high  air ncrialism, and a complete trained anl  mat circus, including Capt. Webb's juggling  si-iils, Prof. Wood's dogs und ponies and Pearl  Soudor's comedy elephants. Here is diversity  enough to pll-nso tbe most exacting public, lo  say nothing of the vast proportions of the  exhibition, which surpasses ln magnitude  anything In tbe line of amubcmcnt enterprise  tbat the world has ever been. Ileserved  numbered seats and admissions show day at  thc McDowell, Atkins, WHtson Company's drug  store, i-orner Hustings and Homer streets, at  exactly the suiue price as charged iit'thc regu.  lar ticket vvngons on the show grounds.  Kingllng Bros.' great canvas pavlllions cover  more thnn twelve acres, and constitute a  veritable city of tents. Thc mammoth  hippodrome amphitheatre is the largest evor  constructed, nnd ia absolutely impervious to  miu.  Mingling Hrothers, who-e big circus is to  exhibit in this city to-dny, have HO big and  little clepliHUts. All other circuses and  zoological gardens in the United States  combined have hnrdly hnlf the number.  The greatest sensation of the year in the  circus lino is John O'llrlen's horse bullet, the  latest spectacular fenture of Kingling Brothers'  World's tlrontcsl Shows. This Is thc most  magnificent lior.se dibplny ever conceived.  Among thc interesting animals In Kingllng  Brotlieis' zoological display this yonr is n  splendid specimen of the practically extinct  giraffe, severnl Koyal llcngnl tigers, two horned  liovsus, n bi.horned rhinoccroub, two hippopotami, a pair of rare black tigers,'nnd many  oilier uuiiualb, including :-,0 trained elephants.
