AN UffQALIFED" SUCCESS  The'   minors' Slio\re��l   What They.  Could  Do   and Establlslied a   Reputation  ��� for Themselves.  With the ' cake ��� walk, the medley,  the singing of Auld Lang Syne and,  the giving of three cheers" for the  riiiners of Moyie; the first annual ball  of the Moyje Miners Union was  brought to au end.  Just three months, ago the Moyie  Miners' Uflu'on No Tl ���was organized  and from a small beginning has grown  to a prosperous order of nearly one  hundred-members. That the organization has the timber in it to push  forward and achieve the' ambition of  each member to make it the banner  union of'the Koot'enays seems more  than probable judging by the .decided  success of the ball last night. It was  undoubtedly the crowning event in  the social life of Moyie. McGregor  liall, which is spaciousaud well floored,  was placed in tbe hands 'of a committee of ladies and .gentlemen early  in the week, and' that they were ' artistic as"well as energetic workers tho  'decorations amply testity. - The national colors, the American flag, the  Irish flag,'bunting and evergreens  were- interwoven and distributed over  the walls ,and ceiliug, making the  room a veritable bower of beauty and  fragrance. Over the stage the words  '; Welcome to All'* were woven in evergreens and bene'ath were the letters  "W;.,F; M. No. 71." .On one side of the  wall were crossed the miners' pick and  "shovel over ah Irish flag with words  "Erin Go B'raugb," and on the opposite  was a typical' 49'ers' outfit with the  words ''The Days of 49" in gold letters.  Hanging on the wall in1 the back of  tbe hall was a life sized portrait of  Her Majesty, Queen Victoria.  ? As early as 9 o'clock the crowd began to gather and when the address  of welcome and the graud march announcement were made by President  Elmer, wlic had charge of the floor  committee, the large hall wan filled  with a handsomely dres'c-ed . crowd  numbering over 150. Miners' Union  badges aud shamrocks" were conspicuous on all sides. The music was furn.  ished by Professor Karl Webber  at the piano; S. T. Fox, slide tormbone  and Wm. Mills, flute. 'All present  were unanimous in saying that it was  the finest music ever furnished at a  ball in( Moyie, and the orchestra received 'many compliments from the  guests. Supper was" Served at the  Movie hotel, and 131 persons participated. There was an'abundance of  everything and the service was excellent, th'e attendance being anip'le courteous and obliging. The ball was, no  doubt the grandest affair of its kind  ever given in Soiith East Kootcnay,  and it is satisfactory to know that the  union has a substantial cash balance  over all expensed.  j.te^aTK:et affdrds.

Nelson Tribune: The working miners around Moyie have sot th'e mine  managers of other districts a good ox-  ample. Prior to the settiemen't of the  wage dispute iii the gloc'an they were  recevihg $3.50 per day for hand drilling. Th'6y were in no way affected by  the Slocan trouble, but when the compromise was arrived at the management of the St. Eugene Consolidated  suggested that the hand drillers recognize tho $3.25 scale, which they did.  This is as it should be, and the bucking mine managers of the Nelson district would be; acting the graceful  part if they top, fell into.' line and  'recognised the S'locah conip'romise as  tne standard wage foi- .their district.  it is an-eyeu break between-what, the  miners asked and what _ ihe ,mine  inanagers offered in the' first .instance.

A terrible fatality  occurred here today at noon by which  William MacLeod lost' his life and  Mrs. H. Nash lies in' a very precarious  condition. Just above' the Slocan  gulch the bankd are very steep,. and  the rain and thaw ot the last,36 hours  had so loosened the earth along the  hillside that ' a mass of . eai th  one hundred yards long and seventy-  five yard3 wide, came down with a  rush,' completely Wrecking six residences in the' Lovatt. addition. The  houses were all occupied except .one,  and fears for the safety of the' occupants brought the whole town to the  scene of the disaster. ��� '  . ' o  Rescuers started to work on the  wrecked buildings and Mrs. Fog? and'  her tittle a-irl were gotten" but of the-  debris only' slightly injured.

A  famous sieople climber was asked if he ever felt fear In his business.  -Of course 1 feel fear at times," he  answered. -'Fear is common ro all  mankind. Not to feel fear Is not courage. To overcome fear is the true quality of courage. I divide tbe nerve force  of a man Into two parts���the Impelling  force ' and the restraining force���tho  same impelling force that causes n  body of recruits at first to run under  lire* and the , restraining force that  ��� ���aus'es them to overcome for various'  reasons the first natural fear. So, In  climbing, one unused to it is by the  natural'impelling force of his norvou.s  ���system afraid,,afraid that his legs, his  arms, his support, will give w.-iy and'  plunge him down. Shakespeare, who  touched on all human emotions, touched on this feeling of fear ln hlgli places  when In 'King Lear" he pictured Ed  ward at the cliffs of Dover.  "The one way to get over the natural  fear,is, by some^'restralning force from  either within or without,  onco when a new boy at sea- was ordered aloft by the mate he trembled  with fear aud begged to be lot out ol  it. 'Upon'my soul, sir, 1 can't go up  iheiv.' This, was his first impelling  impulse. 'But when the male touched  him up with a rope's end he was at the  top of'ibe mast so quick that ihe'mnte  could'not follow him. Tbe pain on his  outer "nerves brought him to his senses  and made him exeri his regirahiing  force. So If you happen, to be wilh  any one w,ho shows signs of fear hi, a  high place a few smart,.slaps on the  ('nee will bring him' to- himself. The  right'medicine for uncou.. icrable fear  Iu a high place is. immediate pain on  the outside nerves."���Boston Transcript.- ' ' ''���'.'

Bear to the heart of every son and  daughter of "that'dear little isle that  is over the sea," is the 17th of March,  the day dedicated as* the anniversary  of good old Saint Patrick, the patron  of all Ireland and of all the Irish. And  a noble patron he is of a worthy people,whose influence is felt in every  quarter of the globe and , whose intelligence and industry are adding  daily to the weal Hi of the world wherever there is an equal chance extended to them. Of all the foreign-  ,ers-coming to tho" United Stales and  Canada there are none who so soon  adapt themselves to the conditions  'existing as do the Irish. Yet with all  his cosmopolitanism there is no one  who clings to the land of his nativity  or the home  of  hia forefathers  with  ������ such  loving  tenderness as does   the  *   i i  Irishman,   and    his   hand    and   his  pocketbook .ire ever open to  the call  for assistance of his beloved Erin.  people of'South E.ifet lvooienay are  begining to look for available limber  from which (o select a candidate for  re election. But the aspir.inls for  office seem iomewhal reticent. If  there is a candidate, through whose  whiskers blow the seed of reform, it is  time for him to get out into the sunlight of political favor and begin to  pull tlie strings. This extreme modesty of announcement seems to be  born of a fear that whoever shows his  head will immediately get it punched  so that it. may not be recongnized at  the hustings, or that a dark horse  may become "only a jackass at the  finish.  ���~ - -jst^. jj^j.-. ^xrrn*' agarr^jsBa^SiSZ^atXL^^^^i^SSS^^K^^  COL'KT JHOyJE.
