Although scarce-  five years of age, tho small tot possesses a wonderfully strong voice  and sings her songs and carries her  parts with a surprising degree of  the finished artisto in her manner.  The "Rajah of Pazala" is a lively  and entertaining piece of comic  opera, with a plot just sufficiently  intricate to maintain the interest.  The prominent figure in the. play  is' "Buttons," the cabin boy of the  H. M. S. Dominion, in which character* appears Babe Mason, the  star of the compaii3r.' Little Miss  Mason has lost none of her charms  in the past year and she received  well deserved applause. Grace  Hutchinson is another of the young  artists who is also well received.  A new actress appeared in the role  of Pat Luuey, the tramp, in the  person of Jessio Macpherson, but  her presentation of the part was  fully equal to any that have preceded her.

Gardom at the Lancashire House,' Midway, between  thirty and forty of his Midway and  Greenwood friends being present.  Midway people have always been  noted for' tho whole-heartedness  with which they entered into affairs of this kind,' and Saturday  night's banquet-was no exception  .to the rule.  Years ago Mid way had an organization  known  as  tbe   "Thirteen  Club" which met every  Saturday  evening.    It was something on the  linos of the Y. M. C. A., with perhaps a little more liberty allowed  its members along certain lines, in  order to harmonise with conditions  in tire west.    About  twelve years  ago  three young men, arrived in  Midway , from  Winnipeg  on  the  regulaikweekly stage. Friday evening.    Prominent members  of the  club called   upon  them  and  welcomed them  to .the district,  and  .iiu,identttJly���������ascci,.toiaed .thoicuio.de  of gaining a   JivlihoocfT    It   was  found that they were missionaries  of tho Presbyterian faith, and. had  come to minister to  the  spiritual  needs of the residents of the  country from Grand Forks to Prtiiticfon  and    Princeton.    They- had   read  some of Ralph Connor's  effusions,  and    had   become enthused  with  that excellent author's pipe-dream  descriptions of western  conditions.  Thej' were,  of course,   invited to  the meeting of the club that Saturday evening, but owing  to  iriisrer  sentatioiis of the local assayer failed to put in an   appearance.    Just  at daybreak   on Sunday  morning  the club called at the assay office  and begged an interview with  thc  assayer and the parsons.    All came  out  in  their night  clothes,   and,  standing in front of the  building,  offered to convert the  whole club  free of charge.    The club members  not to bo  outdone,  offered   liquid  refreshments, also free  of charge.  Neither would  accept  the other's  hospitality and the parsons return-  to their slumbers and the members  of   tho   club   to  their  respective  homes.    A fter a time  the parsons  and    tho   thirteeners  became the  best of friends although   neither  sympathised with the other's form  of    entertainment.    Tho    parsons  gained experience,  and tho members of   the club were  none tho  worse for contact with the college  boys.    One of tho parsons afterward served in the South   African  war, and is now pastor of a coast  church; another was located  for -a  time   at   Fornie,  endeavoring to  bring the denizens of that benighted burg to a knowledge of saving  graco,  and it must bo admitted  that   preaching in  Fernie is far  nionr strenuous than   lighting in-  South Africa; tho third student  is  now pastor of an Irish Tory congregation in Grey county, Ontario,  an easy position, providing ho can  discriminato between Orange and  Green.  Saturday    night's banquet  was  equal to any of the thirteen club's  lid.  the National Anthem, the health of  Mr. "Gardom was proposed, and in a  short speech ho thanked his friends.  Ife was sorry to leave Midway,  but, after all. money was the lode-  stone that attracted most of us.  He would always remember the  friends he had made in the Boundary. He had, of course, felt strongly on part}r issues, but had never  allowed politics; to interfere with  his official duties.'  "The Ladies" was responded to  by Frank Sherwood, U. S. deputy  collector of customs.  "The Press" by the Midway  Star and .Ledge representatives.  "Commercial Interests" by Manager Moo of the Eastern Townships  Bank.  "Transportation" by H. R.'Stev-  euson of the C. P. R.  and D.   W.  Williams of the Great Northern.  <   "Pioneers" by J.   R.  Jackson,  0. J. Lundy, and C. L. Thomet.  Jos. Wilmshurst spoke for the  provincial government.  /  The Agricultural interests were  responded to by Mr. Lee in the  speech of the evening.  The.U. S. A. by Thos Kelly and  Stub Williems.  Visitors called Bert Logan and A.  D. Hallett to their feet.  Dr. Tamblin spoke for the professions, and K. Hankiuson, Alex.  Broomfield and Ed. Melville made  short speeches.  A. *W. Sowter aud J. R. Ferguson also replied to toasts. All  spoke highly of Mr. Gardom, and  wished him every success.  After a vote of thanks to the  chairman, and also to Mrs. Dowd-  ing for"the"excellent Banquet provided, the singing of "Auld Lang  Syne" ended a most enjoyable  evening.  Mr. Gardom leaves about the  Loth for Vancouver to engage in  the insurance business.

To Editor Greenwood Ledge,  Dexh Sir : In the last issue of  1 *  the Bouudary Creek Times, August 2, it refers to my- inflammatory speech on the street. If it is  inflammatory to speak the truth,  then I have no apologies to make.  One of the things I said, that there  was a citizens' alliance in Greenwood and the only .thing they  lacked was a charter, and I can  prove it, as when there is any labor  trouble the merchants make themselves more conspicuous than tlie  company managers. A tip for the  future���������don't sit on tho fence���������  mine and smelter managers are  well able to take care of themselves. As to congratulations, the  men of the Western Federation of  Miners, every man of them, ought  to be proud to be members. They  are the most .progressive and ag:  gressive labor organization in the  world, as, through the efforts of  the local union, the men are being  paid better now for an S and U  hour day than they we're for a 10  hour day. Last year S3,423.00  was paid for sick benefits and StiOO  for education and SI000 is being  spent for that purpose this year.  The Boundary Creek Times says I  declared myself an anarchist.  When it makes that statement it is  wrong. What I did say was ������������������Had  Haywood been .found guilty, we,  the members of the W. F. M.  would be branded as anarchists,"  as the laws of Canada prohibit anarchists meeting in secret we would  not be able to hold anjr more meetings, which is true. Hut the trial  of Haywood has proven this 'much  ���������anything-the devil is ashamed to  do the mine owners' associations  and citizens' alliance will do for  him.  As to being "excited," to that I  plead guilty myself. Millions of  others who never believed Haywood guilty, even after the President of the United States called  him "undesirable" and when papers like the Spokesman- Review  had Haywood tried, convicted and  hanged and then have to take back  the lie, its time to get excited.  When Moyer and Pettibone are  free men T shall go some more.  Also, the merchants came in for  severe handling. Well, its coming  to them. I can point .to several  cases    where   married   men   with  Regulating Electric Light.  It is possible that the incandescent electric lamp will soon be sus-  ceptable to the same amount of j laren  f*"������������������es have been   refused  regulation as gas, for there is now  on tho market a lamp operated by  for capital or labor in the Boundary  until there is a co-operative store  in every town in the Boundary.  The woiking men are beginning,  to see its not tho business that  builds up a community,���������it's the  pay-roll.

" Of the more than  5,000 officers  carried  on  the long payroll of the  United States army, to First Lieut.'  Joseph    Henry    Pelot,    Artillery  Corps, belong the distinction of be-"  ing   the    youngest   commissioned  officer.  The rules for the .admission of  cadets to the Military Academy  prescribe that no candidate shall  be admitted who is under 17 years  of age, but Lieut. Pelot entered  "West Point when only sixteen days  over the minimum age limit. He  was born June I, 1885, in Missouri, and before entering West  Point he graduated from the Blackburn High School, at Blackburn,  Mo. He was admitted to the "Military Academy on Juue 10, 1902.  Notwithstanding that he was the "  youngest member of his class, his  standing for the four years at the  academy was always high, for he  graduated last June No. 10 among  70' members. Upon graduation he  was assigned as second lieutenant .  to the Artillery Corps, and is now  serving with the Eighth Battery in  the Philippine Islands as a first  lieutenant. Should he not leave  the service for any other cause he  would not retire for age until June  1,10-10.���������Army and-Navy Life.  Old Glory Shamed.  At tho Battle of Bladensburg,  thc American troops were defeated  by tho British, under the command of an Irish officer named  Ross. In recognition of his services in winning this" victory, his  sovereign granted him the title of  Ross of Bladensburg, and to his  crest was added au American flag,  reversed, with the shaft broken.  The  title  is hereditary.    Tn   out  most enthusiastic gathering,  A. Ham, one of tho charter members of the club presided.

This tiny glow  does away with the necessity of  groping around in tho dark in  search of the lamp, often at the  sacrifico of some of the bric-a-brac  of the room. Tho second point of  adjustment causes the filament to  glow at about three-quarters of the  lamp's capacity.

The procession and ceremony in honor of the "Blessed  Sacrament" by Roman Catholics  dates back many centuries but has  been observed in Montreal since at  least 16-lfl. Familiar as the sight  is to Montrealers, the streets are  nevertheless thronged as the procession passes.  From Notre Dame the processson  starts, to St. Patrick's church  grounds, where a beaufcilful "repository was erected for the occasion.  Varied and novel in character are  the units which constitute the procession. Little girls are there clad  in long veils, signifying that they  have attended their first communion. Little boys who have reached  the same spiritual mile post wear  ribbons and badges. Then come  novices sombrely garbed, followed  by grey nuns and monks, clad in  coarse brown serge ulsters and  wearing sandals. Farther down  the line are priests' in. elaborately  embroidered gowns of offic e* Ladies in ordinary attire are there too,  ladies of fashion and social standing who march for the time being  shoulder to shoulder with women  who earn their living by manual  labor. Members of various church  societies carrying banners and mottoes constitute a large part of the  procession.  Finally comes the baldacein, a  gorgeous canopy of cloth of gold,  beneath which Bishop Raciot walked carrying the Host. Beside him  was the archbishop of Montreal  clad in the elaborate vestments of  his high oflice. Mount St. Louis  cadets marched behind the baldachin as a guard of honor. At the  passing of the'Host, all the faithful  Catholics on thc lino of march silently uncover and fall on their  knees. Bringing up the rear of the  procession were the members of the  Montreal Bar, headed by Judges  Tachereau, Guerin, Curran and  Lafoutaine.  Regina watches for everybody at  all prices.    A. Logan & Co.  Grey Horses In Maine.  After tho disquisition on the  value of grey horses, as compared  with horses of other colors, the  Parkhurst writer sagely notes:  "You may change a farmer's religion or politics, make him think ho  is rich and handsome, coax his  wife to run away with you, or soil  him  a dog,   but you  will   never  make him   think  a  grey  horse  is  not a  jewel.   ,1  read   somewhere  I recently that grey horses were  not  jup-to the  standard,   or words .to  ! that effect.    1 never was7 so  astonished in my  life.    I   have'always  thought,    and   do  now,   that  the  grey   or    white horses  were the  handsomest,,toughest breed on the  planet.  "The celebrated Arabian, horses  are white or dapple grey. Famous  generals in all wars have ridden  while or iron grey chargers. Circus men select grey horses to draw  the band waggons in street parades.  A great packing company always  selects Perchoron horses, not so  much for their color, but because  their feet will stand travelling on  the pavements better than any  draught breed. It is said that  Joan of Arc rode a milk white  horse, and St. John the revelator,  saw a white Iforse in heaven (Rev.  vi. 2). Half of the draught horses  iii Aroostook are white' or grey,  and another decade will sec DO per  cent, of them that color."���������From  the Lewiston Journal.  N. J.

Two   considerations,    and   two  only, are put forward in  favor  of  the unrestricted immigration of the,  Japanese���������n'amoly, that of economy  and that of amity' between  Great  Britain and Japan.    These, accord-  to the advocates of the open  door  for the yellow race?, are the  matters of paramount importance  in  the   premises.   There   are   other  tilings, it is admitted, but they are  he'd to be greatly  outweighed  by  the blessing of 'cheap coolie labor  plus the continuance of  harmony  between the government af King  Edward and that of tlie Mikado.  In fact, such  free traders as' the  Montreal Witness would admit the  Japanese on the economic grounds  alone.  Wo arc surprised to lind a newspaper so  ostentatiously moral and  religious as  tho  Witness  arguing  that the laborer's cheapness is  tho  cardinal  virtue.    In -Japan   itself  wages are as low as  the  Christian  economist-could desire and tlie lot  of    the  working   classes  is  what  might be expected, whore  toil  receives such wretched reward.    The  buying power of  the coolie could  not be much   lower  if  hu  were a  slave.    Does    tho   AVitness  fancy  thatas the ideal-state of individual  happiness and the basis of national  greatness?    It* so,   we .can   understand why  it so  passionately, opposes suggestions, for  die  limiting  of   Asiatic immigration.    Jt  evidently sees, as everybody else does,"  that the swarming in, 'of Japanese  laborers will depress wages so that  it wiU be impossible for the  white  laboring  man   to  continue  in the  enjoyment   of   such  comfort's as  their present remuneration enables  them to command.    Many  things  which everybody can   now  afford,  and.which are regarded as  necessaries of life, would soon be put out  law of India.  In 1902, the last year for' which  figures are available, no fewer than  25,180 judicial floggings were inflicted upon adult male and female  ofl'onders for petty "theft and the  like. According- to Sir- Henry  .Cotton, M._ P., KG. S. I.,-who  haspublished a pamphlet on this  subject, these'floggings are admin-  isted publicly over the bare body.  .. The triangles are an unpleasant  feature outside' every- criminal  court in India. Sir Henry says: ���������  ."J have known of floggings so severe that- the/victims have died  on tho triangles to which they were  tied."  And this horrible torture is in  flicted for. the slightest offence. -  1-Jumanitarian iu Reynolds News  paper.'  Gold filled watch chains from %2  up.    A.

MARSHALL, Prop, g  the influx of Japanese reached such  proport.ioiiH.fw-to HWftrup fcho -labor  market in  any of our provinces.  Our own working men would soon  be reduced to a stato of poverty  and squalor that ought  to satisfy  tho AVitness aiid all other  upholders'of  the  laissez-faire, principle.  Of course, with thc economic and  social declension of white  laborers  would go the depression ,of their  ; moral and civic character.    What  should we go't in  return  for  what  John Stuart  Mill   would  call this  "em uniting" of the.workiug class- ]  es?    We   should   have    railways  built at much  lower cost,   mines  operated far more cheaply, the outlay on   farming greatly reduced,  and other boons of the like nature.  This would facilitate the -amassing  of fortunes by railway  contractors  and operators, by enterprising mine  owners,    by   landed   barons  and  other "captains of industry."    We  should have greater and perhaps  bore millionaires to offset the impoverished millions.    Such  is  the  golden age of  which -tho  Witness  sees  the  dawn   in  the advancing  multitudes of Japanese coolies.  -   Before resting its caso for Japanese iin migration    on    economic  grounds,   the  witness should havo  first made it clear  that tho country's gain in material wealth would  bo a net gain.    It could  not  be a  net gain unless thc Japanese  were  efliciont consumers as well as cttiu-  ient    producers.     In    productive  value   the   poorly paid  Japanese  coolie would not be equal  to  tho  now liberally paid   white  laborer,  and    in    consuming capacity  the  former  would  of iiecsssity  bo  of  still lower ralativo  value.    But  if  the economic argument wore entirely i 11 favor of tho  Japanese,   it  ought not to be the detcruiiniii"  ono in this question  of Asiatic immigration. ; irrespective- of the of-  fect on wages/Canada must be kept.  a white man's country.

I heard of an amusing incident in this line the other day.  A medium, after evoking Lincoln,  Washington and other seasonable  spirits, said in a thrilling voice:  '" 'I see a man of middle "age,  with black hair parted in the middle, a black moustache aud a tip-  tilted nose. Efandsome, distinguished, stately, and he is hovering  persistently about you,   sir,'   and  the medium nodded toward an elderly man with white whiskers.

While a.large  proportion of the men employed in  mines and smelters are good for  any debts they contract, about 10  per cent per month "jump'' their  accounts. Thecompanies will not  protect hotels and restaurants without the payment of from *)'to 10  per cent for their trouble. Every  week a few quit" work and go to  new fields, leaving their accounts  unpaid. Hotels and restaurants  have no protection. They cannot  very well refuse board to a man  who is willing to work and who  promises to make good on pay day.  The vast majority of these do  "makegood," but asuflicient iium-  to cut down the profits, fail to do  so.  It appears that Inspector Clute  of the customs did not resign but  was ousted to make room for a  man with a greater pull, and less  ability. There was nothing against  Mr. Clute, except his age; and  nothing in favor of his successor,  except that presumable be Jwas  entitled to promotion for services,  rendered the party. Mr. Clute  had been continued in bis position  for several years after tho age limit  had beeii reached' owing to his  vigor, and the thoroughness 'with  which he conducted the business  of his otticc; The first intimation  he had of his "resignation" was  through the columns of the Vancouver Province, while on his last  official tour through the Boundary.  It is said that this information was  furnished tho press by his successor. There is no reason why the  Liberals should not make provision  for the supporters of the party, but  an old and efficient employee of the  government,   such   as Mr.  Olu  to  undoubtedly was, should at least  have been allowed tbe customary  privilege of tendering his resignation. Mr. Busby's services to  the party should be rewarded but  that is no reason why the usual  courtesies should not be extended  to "Mr. Clute.  You cannot estimate the weight  of the fi.-ih by thc size of the -hook.  There is only one letter between  speculation and peculation.  Some men have an idea their  rights consist in profiting from  other peoples wrongs.  A good circus comes about as near  as anything we know to being the  fountain of perpetual youth.
