A. bald head is somewhat an uncon-  -ventional apace for the purposes of advertising. Yet a few days ago a sensation was caused on tlie Paris boulevards by aii_ announcement so boldly  .and curiously set forth.  It was outside one of tlie popular  " restaurants. Tlie seat, were crowded.  ' Presently a portly gentleman unosten-  ,- tatiously sat down in a prominent  ���seat, opened bis newspaper, and re-  tAmoved bis bat. Immediately be was  ' the cynosure of all eyes.   There, boldly  set forth on  his shining cranium, was  i-  ,' the advertisement of a certain  music  >-  --.hall.     The crowd surged  round the  * unusual spectacle, and at last the proprietor   was compelled-to request liis  curiosity-provoking   jtikt'onier   to   go  "elsewhere.  . . The idea, though novel, however, is  5by no means new. A few years ago  Hlie'audienee of a London theatre were  amused to sec the name of a well known  soap inscribed on tlio bald heads of a  number of men in the front row of the  stalls. "-Upon each head was painted a  large letter of the name of the saponaceous compound, and when the men  sat side by side in Lhe correct order,  the name was produced. The humorous  novelty of thi announc-ment appealed  to the audience, much to the theatrical  manager's disgust. Jiut he hud no  remedy. * Thc seats for the men h:id  been purchased, and tbey were creating  no disturbance," so he had to tolerate  the gratis advertisement.  "I stole this suit from Cuttem and  Stitchum." ..Such, was the bold announcement displayed in white letleis  oii tlie back of a black suit donned by  a*smart-young man. As he' walked  along the principal thorougiifurcs of  Birmingham, he soon attracted a Luge  crowd, which foilowe I liim with keen  interest, in anticipation of s:)iu_j event-  , -  ful proceeding. It came. "When the  crowd h.id almost filled ,thc width of  tae street, the human advertisement  stopped, placed a handbag he carried  oh the ground, opened it with great  deliberation, and hurredly distributed  a mass of handbills betting forth the  superioiity of thc suits made by a  ���prominent ta:leu ing-firm.��� Unfortunately, the enterprising move was  nipped early in the bud by the puiice,  who objected to the obstruction of the  streets, and the man'was compelled to  obliterate the catchy .announcement.  Living letters was the ruse adopted  by another enterprising North of England firm. A children's fete was in  progress, and upon a large open green  apace children were grouped into letters setting forth the firm's specialty.  The letters were each 13*feel in length,  and the children were in overalls of  red white and blue respectively. Some  three hundred children were utilized  for the display, which, in tho bright  sunlight against the green background,  was bold and effective.  It is not often tliat a lady i.s pressed  for the purpose of a human advertisement, but a firm whoso specify i. a  wash "which renders tlie hair as glossy  as silk" turned the idea to proiituble  account. '. .  .It was at Margate, ami u large crowd  bad ^congregated round the bund.  Amongst the auditor.s was a fusliiuii-  ably dressed and pretty young lady.  While.the band was playing tlie la.it  item prior to.' the interval.-she .Vas  seen to remove her hat, nnd a mass of  billowy hair fell oyer lier shoulders.  Immediately a number of ladies leaned  forward to apprise her ofthe fact. 'The  comely maiden wa3 apparently greatly  confused, and thanked lier Samaritans  profusely. 'She" politely.:refused their  proffers of help, but withdrew from  lier pocket a small nill of silk ribbon.'  She gathered  her   hair  within   this,  and her sympathizers were much*  amazed tosec'inscribed thereon, "Look  what Blank's wash has done for __���_>'  hair!"'

MANAGEMENT  The Cause  of Shrinkage in  Tramway Receipts.  The Nelson Tribune has asked many  ridiculous questions" in  its time, but  perhaps the most "absurd, is t_G interrogation as  to why the  tramway receipts are falling olF.     If under the  present gross careless system of managing  the  tramway the   receipts increased the result might well-be regarded as approaching the miraculous.  Tt is generally conceded   that nearly  everything   which  comes  under   the  jurisdiction   of Mayor  Houston, from  the scavengering department down to  the Tribune, is badly managed, but it  is doubtful if any one tiling is conducted so utterly bad,- as the tramway.  Indeed, so wretched  has  the  service  become lhat scores of people who formerly patronized the line have at last  hist abandoned it altogether. *  Thisis  1 artieularly  fine with regard  tothe  service to aiid  from Fairview.     The  lime is taken  from a central point instead  of  from   the   teiinitials, -consequently it requires a mathematician to  figure out juBt when a car* Mill* pass a  given   point.

Added to these causes  for the falling oil' in the receipts is the  refusal of the mayor to exercise a little  horse sense in-dcaling-with the representative of the park.   Mr. Mussleman  has stated time and again that  it was I French   and  not so much rent that  his principals camaraderie,  demanded, as    recognition    of   their  rights.     Yet Mayor Houston not only  refused to deal with the.representative  uf the  lumber company, but resorted  lo his usual nutliodof argument by  The interview with Dr. Milloy wiih  regard to the rich strikes in the vicinity  of Poplar Creek, only confirms recent  reports from  that district.

The Sherman and Piatt players will  conclude their visit  fo   Nelson ,with  the production of "I.ost Paradise'^at  tbe Opera House'this evening.   It was  the   intention of the managriueut to  spend  two or three months here, but  the  patronage already bestowed upon  the company haa not been such as to  warrant a  prolonged stay.       During  their three weeks here, the Sherman-  Platt people have done everything in  their power to please their audiences.;  they have produced several plays never  before seen here ; and they have given  them in a manner that should have  attracted  large audiences;   but such  was not the result.-   If they had produced such old time Nelson favorites  as "Ten Nights in a Barroom." "East  Lynne," ."Uncle Tom's Cabin," "My  Wise ;Uncle,"  etc., undoubtedly  the  financial results would have been more  gratifying.   Nelson theatre-goers never  waver in their affection for their old  favorite   dramas, and the   Sherman-  Platt players should  bave discovered  this fact after the first week and governed, themselves   accordingly.     For  the first two nights of the week, "The  Highwayman," or "Capt. Swift," was  the bill.    'This is a companion play to  "Jim, the Penman," and is regarded  as one of the best pieces of the kind  ever written.    In all the large cities it  has crowded .houses for month afler  month, and  the leading role has been  a favorite, one with capable actors like  Arthur Forrest  and   Maurice   Barry-  m.cy;e.   Taking it all round tbe production given here was a' stood one.     Mr.  Stevenson   inthe title role, added to  his already well-earned reputation, and  J.  J.  Kennedy gave a very capable  presentation   of  "Gardener,"  a part  which  has  been starred  by men like  Charlie Craig.     The other members of  the company  wero well up in their  lines; yet tbe audiences were small.  The next'two  night.  "-Moths"  was  given, the first night as a benefit for  the    Nelson     Bowing   Club.      The  audience on   this night was larger, but  dropped off again on Thursday night.  This performance was also a good one.  Last night "Lost Paradise" was given,  "and tlnFpe"rfofmance~was all that^could  l)e desired, but the patronage was not  what it should have been.     Te-night  the company will bid Nelson good-bye  in    Daly's   'A   Lottery   of   Love."  The    Sherman-Platt    Company   will  carry away a good   reputation   from  Nelson, even  if their efforts were not  more generally appreciated in the way  of large audiences. .

Every Canadian school boy knows  that the sole object of the long agitation for responsible government, that  culminated in the rebellion of 1837.  was to secure control by the legislative  power over the executive. It ls nearly  70 years Bince that question was finally  decided as far as far as Canada is concerned. .  The spectacle of the mayor ot a  small western city defying the council  and seriously claiming that he as executive head is independent of thc  governing body is suggestive of comic  opera.  The farce is only comprehensible on  the theory of a peculiar cranial malformation. ~~ No sane and intelligent  man can pretend to believe that' the  mayor's attitude Is correct legally. If  it were so the existence of a  body of aldermen would be an absurdity.  The ground of quarrel is utterly ir-  revelant to tbe ease. Even discussion  of the wisdom and expediency of recognizing the spoils system in its most  vulgar form is idle. The chief, almost  tne only, question at issue is, is the  Municipal Clauses Act so defective  that tbe cardinal principle of the Canadian constitution, responsible government, may. be discarded, trampled  upon, by a mayor so constituted mentally that he can recognize only bis  own desires.  Mention of a mayor's right of veto i_  also irrelevant. That right is so limited as to be practically annulled. The  veto is valid onlyyuntil it is overruled  by the legislative body. The mayor  was evidently warned of that fact, by  his private legal adviser. He has  therefore abandoned it, and taken up  an attitude of utterly lawless defiance  of the body elected by the citizens!  It is a notorious fault of young communities that grave questions are often  lightly considered, especially that local politics are treated as a game in  which misrepresentation is fair. But  it is certainly a ealamity that the rising generation should see the principles of civic government set at  naught, tlie law openly and shamelessly defied, and such conduct laughingly condoned by many citizens who  are themselves otherwise respectable  and law-abiding.  SONGS OF THE  CIVIL WAK  Names of- Composers Passing  Into Oblivion.  There have been a large number of  visitors in the city this week, and they  are not all tourists. Many of them are  capitalists, investigating tbe mining  possibilities of the country, and others  are already interested in mining properties in the interior.  Mayor Houston's claim to bo considered a humorist finds striking corroboration iu his contention that he  has at last discovered a park iu tbe  neighborhood of the Fairview terminus of the street car line. The place  secured is no more suitable fur a park  than the Ward street ravine.  The Camborne camp is entering upon  what has every appearance of being  tlie most prosperous era in the camp's  history.

During the Civil War, whenever the  opposing   hosts   lay  encamped   near  each other, Federal and Confederate  bands at night made a practice of vie-  Ing with each other in tossing back  and forth, alternately, their favorite "  melodies until finally, at "taps," Nor- .  theruers and   Southrons, friend and  foe, settled down to a joint rendering  ot Paine's exquisite air of   "Home,  Sweet Home."  The army songs which sprang into  existence then, although lacking Jn  many of the requirements of musical  composition, in spite of ad verse "crltl-  cism, enjoyed a wonderful popularity  during that period, aud have been  sung over and over again ever since In  all English speaking lands..  It is to be regretted that the names  of the composers of these famous lyrics,  although deserving of a better fate, are  fast passing into oblivion. Scarcely  one of our readers could name, offhand,  the man who wrote "Dixie" or "John  Brown's Body." To recall to mind the  names of the authors ofa few of the  immortal songs is our present purpose.  "Maryland, My Marvland," the  most melodious and inspiring of all the  songs sung by' the followers of tlie  'lost cause," was composed by James  B, Randall.  "Marching Through Georgia,"  which will be sung and pliyed as Ions  as the Republic Bui'yiV-.s, was com*  posed by Henry Clay Work, bom in  Middletown*. Conn., 1832, died at Hartford, 1884. He also composed "Kingdom Comin'," "Babylon' Is Fallen,*.**  "Nicodemus the Slave," "My Grandfather's Clock," "Lily Dale" and  "Father, Dear Father, Come Home  With Me Now." Work possessed  considerable mechanical as well as musical skill, and was the inventor oT a  knitting machine, a walking doll and  a rotary engine.  "In Dixie Land" was composed in  New York In 1859 by Daniel Emmet, a  principal member of Bryant's Minstrels. '  "John Brown's'Body Lies Mouldering iu the Grave" was written by  Charles Hall, of Cbarlestown, Mass.  __Walter_Kittredge, born in.Merrinaac,   N. H., 1832, was drafted into the Federal army in 18G2. Before going to the  front he wrote in a few minutes both  the words and music of "Tenting on  the Old Camp Ground." Tbis song  was at first refused "publication, but  later ou became immensely popular,  its sale reaching into tbe hundred  thousands.    It is still in demand.  "The Bonnie Blue Flag" was written  in 1862 by Mrs. Annie Chambers Kct-  chum to an Irish melody composed by  Henry McCarthy. It was first sung  in the early sixties at a variety theatre  iu New Orleans.  "Tramp, Tramp, Tramp," and "Battle Cry of Freedom" were composed by  George F. Root.  "The Battle Hymn ofthe Republic,"  as is well kuown, was written by Julia  Ward Howe under tbe inspiration ofa  visit to tho Army of the Potomac  while lying in winter quarters.  "Blue and Gray" was written by F.  M. Finch ; "Bivouac ofthe Dead," by  Theodore O'Hara ; "Sheridan's Ride,"  by T. Buchanan Read ; "Somebody's  Darling," by C. H. Osborn. "The  Conquered Banner" was composed by  Father Ryan ; -'We are Coming,  Father Abraham," by S. J. Adams,  and "When Johnny Comes Marching  Home," by Patrick S. Gilmore.  "Who Will Care for Mother Now?"  and "When This Cruel War is Over"  were written by Charles Carroll Sawyer.  "All Quiet Along the Potomac"  was composed by Mrs. Ethel Lynne  Beers, a lineal descendant of John Elliott, apostle tn the Indians.  - < -���- "A  v;:l  - <?. ���:;.  - ,v -/fee  -I >*\  _. ��� "Y  -'   th  Z'j7y:<  ' r-A-  : 4 THE NELSOK ECONOMIST  THE HELSOH EeONQMlST  Published every Saturday afternoon at ���  Vebhon Street.

C'  EDITORIAL COMMENT.  The election of Mr. Manson, tlie  Conservative candidate in Alberni,  by a large majority must be gratifying to the McBride Government. A  few years ago, Alberni returned a  Liberal by a large majority ; but  how the voters are so satisfied with  thc Government that they have declared unmistakably in favor of the  McBride candidate, and this notwithstanding the fact that even-  possible effort was.made by the Liberals to hold tbe seat.-. For. several  weeks Alberni had been canvassed  not only by Mr. Aitken, the Liberal  candidate, but' also by'Mr. Macdonald, the Liberal leader. Ralph  Smith and Mr, Sloan were brought  back from ��� Ottawa, and promised  the electors eveiything within the  gift'of the Government at Ottawa in  the hope of winning the election ;  but bow far they succeeded the result of the election is tlie best answer. ' Even John Oliver camped  for ttoo or three  weeks  in Alberni,  and aited his grievances on  every  fc  possible occasion, but his speeches  do not appear to have accomplished  anything more, than to convey to  to the member'for" Delta themes-  sage that the electors were not interested in bis private quarrels wiih  ~,the Government. The result of  this bye-election must be regarded  as an indication of the feelings of  the people generally of British Columbia. Tbe'electors are satisfied  with the McBride Government, and  if a general election took place in  this Province to-day, the McBride  candidates would be returned in tbe  proportion of four-to one.

Vancouver   The.new_couuty__c_Qur_t. judge for  .East Kootenay will receive a salary  of $3,500 per year.' This is a reasonable allowance, and no fault will  be Iound with it from any point of  View. But .there seems to he uo  good reason why the county court  judge of this district should not receive equally as large a s.thry. The  work in this district is even greater  than what will be demanded of thc  iudge in East Kootenay ; the expense of attending properly to the  work will also be greater, and there  is very little difference, if any, in  the cost of living. It seems, therefore tbat the Dominion Government  discriminated against this district  in its rearrangement of the salaries  for county court judges.  The announcement that Lord  Roberts will not visit the Dominion  this autumn will be received with  keen disappointment by Canadians.  It was expected that he would open  the New Westminster Fair, and  make a long .stay in British Columbia. Tbe trip has been abandoned on account of the illness of  Lady Roberts.

In noting this fact The  Economist remarks: "Although  the paper is strictly a business undertaking, its opinions are not for  sale. It has never 'crooked the  pregnant hinges"of* tbe knee that  thrift might 'follow fawning,' nor  has it sought to prolong iis existence -by gathering up the crumbs  that fall from the tables of rich corporations," a statement which the  Colonistcan fully endorse'.���Victoria  Colonist.  What Southeast Kooteray now  requires to .place her in the front  rank of mining districts is, first,  capital ; /next, time aud railway  communication, she is gradually  obtaining the latter. It is easy  now to raise capital for any good  Southeast Kooteuay enterprise, and  ihe CiiiaJ an Pacific is pushing its  roads light into the Kootenay.'   By  this means the cost of transportation and treatment on ore will be reduced lo such a level Lhat not only  high-grade properties, but low-  grade properties, will be put on a  ttuiur.erative basis.

The unrestrained greed that riots  in this raid on the Dominion treasury at Ottawa simply means the  break-down of-party government in  Canada. Party government requires two parties. Canada's parties are two in name, but one in nature. The parties stay apart aud  fight shatn battles in dealing with  questions of nation 11 interest. They  come together and do not: fight at  all when there is an opportunity to  fatten the pocket-book of each  mighty atom iu the political universe. Party government requires  an opposition Canada has no opposition and will have no opposition if the professed leader thereof  is to become an office-bolder at tbe  rate of seven, thousand dollars per  annum. The country might have  endorsed a scheme to give adequate  salaries to the premier aud other  underpaid public servants. The  present scheme is not a re-adjustment ; ii i> a callous, impudent  grab, an infamy that will be fought  to the death if there is value in tbe  leadership ol R. L.

So the woman asked them what they "wore, and  they1 said, 'We are the spirits of those  who have been killed by the treatment  of this doctor, and we are "come to  make hiin our reproaches.'
