NELSON, B. C, SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 3, 1904.  NUMBEB 8  F~T\  ales of the   1 own  T,  If tho Jessie Shirley company had  given "Tlie Iron Master;' on the first  evening of tlieir week's engagement,  instead of "The Princoss of-Patches,"  it is more than probable tlie receipts  for the week would have been greatly  increased, notwithstanding the fact  that the attendance lias been-large  every night. The company seems to  be well adapted for* a play like''The  Iron Master," or "Lost Paradise," the  title under which it was originally  produced. As "Reuben Warren," the  superintendent of the iron works,  George McQuarrie demonstrated his  splendid ability as an actor, and Miss  Shirley, as "Margaret Knowltoti,"  showed what she could do in a really  good part, at least from the' specalors'  point of view. In this play Mr.  Forbes was also very acceptable, and  the same might be said of nearly every  other member of the company. In  speaking thus of the performance of  "The Iron Master," it must not be inferred that the company failed iu the  other plays. Such a deduction -would  be far from tbe truth. The only reason for specially mentioning this performance is tbat the play is the one in  which the company seems to give the  best satisfaction. Several of the other  pieces are at least equal to the dramas  which constitute the repertoire of the  average travelling company, and It  cannot be charged that the Shirley  company gave one really bad performance throughout their engagement.  "The Village School Teacher," or  "Doris," is a very attractive English  pastoral drama,, and Miss Shirley, in  the part of -Doris Vane,". ..never fails  to grasp what is' required.of her. Geo.  McQuarrie, as the Irish doctor, is also  remarkably good. He never breaks in  the Irish dialect, something unusual  With the average actor. As "Stephen  Brand," the convict, Frank McQuarrie  was probably seen at his best, and Wilson Forbes give a polished impersonation of the old rector. "Camille" is another piece in which Miss Shirley,  George McQuarrie and Forbes Wilson  were seen to great advantage. In a  way, "Camille" may be regarded as  the strongest piece in the repertoire,  although not the most popular with  -th,e audience. The average theatre-goer does-not-relish-pieces-of aasombren  character. Altogether the company is  a good one, and well-earned the generous patronage it received during its  Nelson enagencient. To-night the engagement closes with "A Farmer's  Daughter."  the state owns a majority of the stock  in some local railroad that has not been  earning dividends. On the motion .of  Ihe private minority stockholders,  United States District Judge Paruell  appointed receivers for the road. This  was considered contrary to the interests of the state and Chief Justice Fuller, sitting in the court of appoals, suspended tlie order appointing the receivers, whereupon the govehor of the  state took possession of the property.'  The editor of a Raleigh paper who had  criticized Judge Purtiell very severely  for turning the state's property over to  pri vat'e receivers had been brought up  before the court, fined ��2,000 for contempt aud denied the right of appeal.  ^He refused to pay the fine and was sent  to" jail, whereupon. his"friends went before the federal court of appeals; for a  writ of habeas corpus and obtained liis  liberty. The i tiling follows rather  closely that of all recent court decisions  on the power of judges to "punish by  contempt. It was held that this applied only to acts of con'empt done in  the presence of the coui;t ordisobed-'  ience or resistence to lawful orders. It  is held that newspaper criticism however severe, is not an obstruction of the  process of the court or a disobedience  to auy order. Unless this principle is,  maintained, judges will escape all sense  of public responsibility for their acts.  It i.s generally recognized that attempt  to influence either judge or jury while  they arc deliberating over a case is improper, though we doubt if it is punishable as contempt, as The Economist has contended before in speaking  of the.Canadian courts. .But when the  act of either judge or'.'jtiry'is done and  becomes .matterof public record, it is  just a much proper subject of public  criticism as the act of any other pub'-'  lie.oflicei1;;- It appears that this, like  many punishments of newspapers for  contempt, was a case of judicial bad  temper?  EVENTS AND GOSSIP  Mrs. J. E. Annable is visiting friends  in Rossland.  fell him on Friday at his mine was not  as serious as at first reported.  All old-timers in British Columbia  are ticijUaintcd with James Orr, the  first member of the Legislature from  Cariboo district. That was in 1803,  long before Confederation. Mr. Orr is  now eighty years of age, but he has  never altogether recovered   from  the  Within the next few weeks a judge  ���will be appointed to fill  the   vacancy  caused by the superannuation of Mr.  Justice Drake.    The    Legislature  of  British Columbia  has decreed that a  resident judge should he appointed for  the Kootenays. and now would be  the  proper time to bring the matter before  the Dominion Government.   A great  deal of the litigation of British Columbia originates in  the Kootenays, and  the necessity of having a resident j udge  is quite apparent.   Besides, it would  give the new judge the advantage of a  -delightful    location.      Every    judge  who has visited Nelson  has expressed  the conviction that this place is second  to none in the Province from a residential point of view.   A move to have a  resident judge  appointed   should   be  made at once.   The local  bar should  meet and communicate their desires to.  Mr. Galliher.  mining fever. For the past few years  he has been in the government service,  but the othor day ho bought the regulation outfit and started out on a prospecting trip. He left Vancouver by  train for Spence's Bridge, and from  there with a packhorsc struck out for  Similkameen district, where he will relocate a quartz property which was disco vered,longago.*-*lIe believes that the  early opening up of the Siiuilkameen  district; will make his prospect valuable,,  and his old friends will be pleased if lie  realizes his expectations.  Vancouver, not Nelson, lacrosse team  will play Revelstoke on Labor Day.  Sandon,   Slocan,    Cranbrook    and  Revelstoke will celebrate Labor Day.  Local nimrods report grouse-hunting  as being the most unsatisfactory In  many years.  Chief Jarvis was presented wich a  purse previous to his departure for Toronto on his vacation.  -The theatre was well filled this after-  r /  noon,  when   "A   Child of the Regiment" was produced.  Subscriptions for the Nelson Fair  are coming in in a manner to make  Secretary Annable smile.  Dr. O. M. Jones, one of the most  noted surgeons on the coast, was in  the city this week on professional  business. ,  Dr..Macdonald, of Brandon, brother  of W. A. Macdonald, K. C, returr.ed  home this morning after visiting Nelson for a week.  Mrs. Thurman, mother of W* A. and  George Thurman, and/ CharlieoJam-  icson, their nephew, left."for home  at Winnipeg last Thursday' ;  The friends of Dr. Arthur are much  gratified that the accident which  be-  Kaslo  city   council    is   protesting  against the propbsed concentrator at  the Cork,  because   of contaminating  the water supply of that place.  The Nelson basket ball team will go  to Slocan city on Labor Day to play  the team of that place, and it is needless to say that Nelson will win.  On Sept. 14th, the ratepayers of  Kaslo will vote on a by-law to exempt  a zinc separating plant from all municipal taxation for a period of ten years.  The Nelson lacrosse boys are practising every evening getlingready for the!  game with Cranbroak during the Nel-i  son Fair.  They will leave immediately'  after the fair for New Westminster.  The Telford case is now on in Vancouver, and it was expected would be  i completed to-day. The deputy attorney-general created a sensation in the  court Thursday by applying to havo  the charge changed from manslaughter  to that of murder. When Telford was  committed on the charge of manslaughter he elected to taken speedy  trial before County Court Judge Bole.  If Mr. McLean had succeeded in having the charge changed to murder, the  trial would have had to come before a  Supreme Court Judge and a jury.  Judge Bole refused the application and  the trial proceeded.  Last night Mr.- Starkey reported to  the Board of Trade the resnlt of his  mission to Winnipeg to interview the  C.rP.R. transportation officials. That  bis report, which has been outlined in  these columns before, was eminentlv  v.        J - *���  satisfactory, was.best evidenced by the  fact that he was tendered a hearty vote  of thanks by the board for his work.  The suggestion has been made that  some kind of-official opening of the  new exhibition buildings should take  place, and many believe that it should  take the form of a band concert. The  Nelson City Bandjbasdone its best to  entertain the citi^nd this slimmer and  it would be a fitting acknowledgment  of their services if that organization was  permitted to open the exhibition buildings, at which a small admission fee  would be charged.  W. G. Gillett is now putting the finishing touches on the new Fair building, and expects to have it completed  by the 10th of September, five days  earlier than the contract calls for. Visitors to the new building are surprised  to find it such a commodious structure,  and it maysurprise evenNelson citizens  to learn that it will be one of the lar-.  gest exhibition buildings in the west.  The committee in charge ofthe decoration have made their plans for beauti-  a  fying the buildings, the material for  decorating having-been ordered. If  the present plan is carried out, the  building will present a really beanti-  ful spectacle when it is thrown open  to the visitors.7 Secretary Annable believes in .brightening upn things, and  with that end in view will' have the  building so decorated as to create the  best possible impression to the visitor  upon entcriug the place.' Large exhibits are coming from Kaslo, Trail,  Fire, Valley, Vernon, Creston���Grand  Forks, Greenwood and .Midway, and  many applications are coming in for  space for display of manufactured^ar-  ticles. The Fair is bpurid to be a great  success.  N  ews of the  M  mes  LARDEAU MINING NOTES.  Camborne Miner.  Supplies  are being  packed   to   the  Mammoth group and Big Showing on  Goat mountain.  A.

FEMALE EDUCATION  MedjcaLauthoritiesjBontinue to con-  It is a peculiar circtiinstance and  one worthy of note that the majority  ol women who come late to tlie theatre  are usually the homeliest fomale3 in  the community. The at'entioti; of the  writer was drawn to this peculiarity  theother evening, and a careful study  ofthe faces of the various women'who  came in late emphasized the truth of  the contention. Handsome women  are always in before the curtain goes  up, while ugly looking females delay  until the middle of the , first act,  thereby displaying., their- homeliness  and at the same time -exasperating  everyone who is interested in the performance.  tend, in spite of popular disapproval,  that modern methods of education for  women are gradually sapping their vi:  tality,' impairing their health and unfitting them for the performance of  their primal duiies as wives and mothers. Wc suspect that tlie woman president of Bryn Mawr college for women is right when she insists tliat female education is wrongly blamed for  the common tendency and development of women in the great intermediate class which is most in evidence  when the subject is under discussion.  The-view of Miss Thomas, set out ln  this place not long ago, was that women educated in colleges are quite as  fit for marriages and marry quite as  much as other women in the .same  class.  can_A cadeLmy^oTMedlei_n c__t hjs__s_u.bjec,t  was discussed with a fullness and particularity that testifies to the deep feeling of the profession about it. We find  the fullest and most intelligible report  of a paper by Dr. Smith, of Toronto,  who holds that modern education has  impaired the happiness of individuals  and the vigor of the race by preventing  many thousands of women from becoming wives and mothers.  Some time ago the supreme court of  Missouri vindicated the right of free  newspaper criticism of the courts in a  rather important ruling. Lately the  federal court of appeals for the state of mouth's  leave of  absence, and   will  Acting  Chief   of  Provincial   Police  Bullock Webster has been granted a  North Carolina has taken another step  in the same direction.

She held that marriage bad declined  throughout the great middle class, from  which most college women are drawn,  because, to put it crudely, the home  education of women in that class is  above their station. That is to say,  nearly all of them have been taught to  expect in marriage the luxury, freedom  and irresponsibility enjoyed by women  who carry large dowries to their husbands. Middle class men without great  fortunes, Miss Thomas says, avoid as a  costly luxury marriage with women  who will not work with them like the  lower, aud cannot share the cost of living with them like the wealthier class  of women.  At the recent meeting of tbe Ameri-  Dr. Smith deals with college education less than with that ofthe secondary schools, which he insists train  the brain at the expense of the body,  interfere with the natural development  of the latter at the most critical time,  lay the foundation of future diseases  that prevent inclination for or happiness in marriage, instil tastes and tendencies that make the highest duties  and privileges of home life distasteful  and impossible, and by generating obvious discontent and unhappiness In  marriage, warn away from it the increasing myriads of bachelors and spinsters.  .cerned.healthjs^not^sojmpoi'tant.-for,  the man as the woman.'.'  It is quite certain that Miss Thomas  and Dr. Smith are looking at different  aspects of the same fact; which 13 tliat  the physical vigor of the great majority  of American women is declining with  their gain in mental deve lopment. Dr.  Smith is not sure that this is moro true  of women than of men ; but he thinks  it vastly more important. It'may be  necessary, he says, to sacrifice the phy-:  sical vigor of the males by severe intellectual training in order to enable  them better to earn a living and sup-  port wives and families.  We should think that he would confine this admission to the comparatively  small number whose intellectual labor  society demands. Wcshourd think that  for the great mass who make a living  by unintellectnal labor, he would be as  careful to preserve the vigor of the  males as that of the females. However,  in his view some male deterioration  may be endured if only the primitive  vitality of the race is maintained in its  wives and mothers.  Phoenix Pioneer.  About twenty men are working on  the foundations for the new ore crusher  at the Mother Lode mine.  Abeut 40 men are emplooyed at the  Emma, in Summit camp, 6 at the Oro  Denoro and 7 at the Reliance.    '  A fourteen inch vein of ore has been  reached on the Barbara, near Greenwood, that runs close to ?100 a"ton.  After the train wreck this week,  stopping ore shipments, some of the  furnaces at the Granby smelter were  blown out for a day or two.  Capt. eMorrison says that he will  shortly resume work on the Blue Jay.  This week he secured an assay of $37  from the face of the long tunnel, now  in over 200 feet.  This week Mclntyre & McDonald  transferred the'borse whim from"the  Strawberry mine, on tbe North Fork,  to the Silver Iii ng claim, in Skylark  camp, that is being worked under  lease and bond by Mike Kane and  associates.  The water is being kept out of the  Stemwinder mine, it requiring but a  few hours each week or ten days.v This  mine is to be worked when the Brooklyn is under way.  This week Supt. Collins spent'several  days in Greenwood and'at the Morrison mine, which is also to be gotten  ready for operations shortlj*, being  followed    by   the    Athelstan-Jackpol  group in due time.  POPLAR MINING NOTES.  Trout Luke Topic.  The Mother Lode tunnel Is in 50 feet  and crosscutting will be commenced at  once.  ��� VO-.-*!  J. A. Magee of the Spyglass returned  Wednesday from a business trip t��>  Trout Lake and Revelstoke.  A tunnel is being run ou the Morning group, Rapid creek, to tap the  main lead at a depth of 50 feet. From  this deptn drifting will be done on the  lead.  The season's assessment work hi-ii  been done on the Cranbrook group,  Poplar creek, by Fred J. Hazen. Theie  is a very large lead of quartz on the  group, carrying good gold values.  The tunnel on the Broken. Hill,'  Rapid creek, is now in nearly a hundred feet. An additional 75 feet will .'~V\f  have to be run before the rich lead of - -_  arsenical iron uncovered on thesur-' > Y_-,;  face is reached. This will give a depth - :' .-  of about 125 feet.  Work will shortly be commenced on  the group of claims on Poplar creek,  bonded to Dr. McDougalll a short time,'  ago by George Ross and John and  James Caldwell. There are two groups,  comprising four claims each, one between Poplar aud and Casca'de creeks,  and the other adjoining the town of  Poplar. Instructions were received  from Dr. McDougall this week to commence running a tunnel on the Hercules group. .  *  The strike in the lower tunnel of the  Spyglass is much more important than  at first supposed.    When first encotf.l-  tered the lead was from ten to fourteen  inches in  width, but in tbe last ten  feet driven it has widened to from 22 to  24 in-'hes.

EDITORIAL COMMENT.  The Grand Forks carnival committee appears to  have got its affairs in bad shape. As the Sun of  that city says, it is lamentable, inasmuch as the good  name ofthe city is at stake. It appears that the committee finds that it has a deficit of about $1200. At  present there are charges and counter charges being-  toade. " The secretary of the committee states that  the liabilities exceed the receipts by about $1200.  This statement is doubted by a number of people,  even by some who were connected with tbe enterprise.  These people make Jhe assertion that there wasa  sufficient amount of money taken into meet all obligations and leave a snug profit besides. In the meantime, however, the fact remains tbat there is an army  ��f unpaid actors, entertainers, theatrical managers,  newspaper men and mechanics who are spreading  the news broadcast that they Lave been victimized.  :- The concensus of opinion at Grand Forks appears to  be that the good r^me of the city bas received a stain  \ which it will take years to wipe out.  gard to the militia Duudonald knew he would be retired. He did not complain that he had been unjustly  treated, but he had the courage of his convictions and  in expressing them publicly had magnanimously  sacrificed himself in the interests of Canada and the  Empire. Lord Dundonald had achieved his object,  that of making the raising of* a strong militia the crucial question in the Dominion, and in the views expressed he had carried with bim the thinking people  of Canada, the bone and sinew of the country, and  the effect would be for the lasting good of Canada.  Sir Charles entirely approved of the attitude of Lord  Dundonald and was convinced no man in anj'thing  like a similar position had done so much to advance  the real better and higher interests of Canada ; of all  men who had occupied the position not one .had given  such a patriotic and imperialistic proof of his appreciation of the exigencies of the situation.  Revised figures of the gold output of the Transvaal  (South Africa) mines for July, 1904, show  that it  was not-so  great as stated in the  first cabled estimates.    These latter were 325,000 ounces whereas  the later figures for the month in question as 307,840  ounces.    The output for the preceding month (June)  was 308,219 ounces, and for  the month of May preceding, 314,480 ounces.    No explanation is made of  the falling off in production in July, as compared with  tbe two preceding months.     The only possible explanation, and, probably the correct one, is  that the  larger mines temporarily reduced   production, while  a waiting the advent of Chinese labor, and for which,  in order to  systematicaliy provide, it may have been  found  necessary to   re-arrange   their . underground  working methods.     The report of production for the  present   month, will, when   made   known,  furnish  some  fairly accurate idea of what may be expected  from Chinese labor in the mines.

The Toronto Telegram cannot see why it was that  Mrs. Maybrick, who is credited with being the first  vocalist to attempt-The Holy City." should have  ieceived a fifteen-years' sentence, whereas thousands  of other offenders have escaped.   .  When John Houston was running for the Legislature, Hon.'Charles Wil on came to his aid. Now,  Mr. Houston is showing his gratitude for services  rendered by abusing Mr. Wilson. If the latter has  beerrguilty of any offence, it was in giving assistance  to John Houston.  Toronto Telegram.  Canada's Islands are gone, through the kindness  oi Lord Alverstone, and Canada's self-respect will go  if the Vanderbilt, millions are to carry the Duke of  M arlborbugh to Rideau Hall. Canada has become  Treconciledto" the" idss~or_herislands,-which-Ioss-was-  represented as a sacrifice on the -high altar of Im-  P eria! duty. Canada wijl not be so easily reconciled  to an appointment that must advertise this proud  abode of freedom ns the happy home of six million  subjects of an " American vicereine." It may have  been all right for Lord Alverstone to take our islands  for the sake ofthe Empire's peace, but it is n'otj and  never can be, all right for the Imperial authorities to  take away Canada's self-respect by sending the Duke  of Marlborough to Rideau Hall.  Sir Charles Tupper has sailed for Canada on the  Bavarian. Interviewed at Liverpool as to whether  the Dundonald incident had blown over, Sir Charles  replied it had not. Lord Dundonald considered the  militia should not in any way be mixed with politics,  so that all classes might join in'citizen soldiering with  the object, if necessity arpse, of defending their  country, which Sir Charles considered the weakest  jpot in theBmpite.   In propounding his policy in re-  Oltawa Cltizon.  It is just as we have said.     Tbe rapacious government leaders in  Quebec are ready to sacrifice the future of that  province  provided they can   delude its  p eople into vctirg en racial lines.    No newspaper or  public man in the  English speaking provinces has  ever appealed to the peopleto vote against Sir Wilfrid  Laurier because he is a French-Canadian.     Such an  appeal would beun-British and unfair and would not  be listened to by a self-respecting electorate.    On his  personal qualification Sir : Wilfrid   Laurier   has as-  much claim to the support and respect of Canadians  of all classes as any other public man.    He is judged  purely on  his political record and the recorded vote  of the English-speaking provinces shows that.     It  remains for Sir Wilfrid Laurier's own ministerial colleagues and government organs in  Quebec to claim  that all FrenchtCauadians should vote against Mr, R.  L. Borden and for Sir  Wilfrid Laurier, not on their  respective policies but because Sir Wilfrid Laurier is  a French-Canadian:    And Quebec responded in 1900  with 58 out of  65 votes.     If it does the same in the  next election, can that province blame the rest ofthe  Dominion if the English-speaking provinces take up  the gauntlet th us thrown in the face ?  urns &  WHOLESALE AND RETAIL  MEAT  MERCHANT  ' '   .c. - ���.*   *  Head Office Nelson, B.
