 UHB  VOLUME  IX.  *��� W cyy \  NELSON, B. 0., SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 1905.  SONGS OF  COOL BURGESS  What is Said About the Dead  Minstrel by his Friends.  Tho  New York   Telegraph,  in   its  Sunday issue, pays a high tribute to  the stage work of the "idol of the minstrel world," who died in Toronto recently.   Tlie paper says:���  I woke up in tlie mawnin,  An' I look up in de sky,  An' dere I saw a eagle's nes',  An' I heard de young ones cry ;  Shoo, fly ! Don't bodder me !  Shoo, fly ! Don't bodder me !  Shoo, fly ! Don't- bodder me !  Foh I belong to Company G.  "Cool" Burgess, the old-time minstrel, the author of the most popular  "coon" song of its decade���"Shoo Fly"  ���and who sang it perhaps 2,000 times,  who died in Toronto last week'got his  nickname .by blending tbe one given  liim at the christening font with his  disposition.-  He was about the coolest, proposition  with whieh managers ever had to contend, and one of his eccentricities was  the rule that he must be paid in advance. In those days managers were  not financially responsible at all times  and under all circumstances.--     -  To the present generation Colin Burgess is at- best a memory, but the time  was when he was at the he.id of his  profession. Vaudeville performers now  owe him a debt of gratitude as the pioneer in demanding and receiving a  fancy salary. This salary was $300 a  week. "Not much, as.saiaries go to-day,  but it was" considerable ���and a"little  more thirty-live years ago.  "Cool" had a bluff and forceful way  about him that was.not particularly  attractive on lirst acquaintance, but he  ��� wore, well, and many stars of the present day have occasion to remember  his kind words and encouraging assistance.  It was he who first put burnt cork  oa the faces of Mclutyre & Heath,  who are now playing in "The Ham  Tree" at the New York Theatre, and  he was the disaoverer of George Primrose. His career on the stage as a  blackface   comedian  has never   beeu  eclipsed.  ^"'^Bur^fri^delucira^hirthlt^Johii-'  B. Stetson gave him an indefinite contract at a salary of 55300 a week whether  he worked or not. He was the first  minstrel to receive that amount of  salary.  He was the first to use the elongated  shoes to dance in, and the first to introduce the monologue. His make-up  was particularly comic.  His song, "Nicodemus Johnson," as  ,weli as "Shoo Fly," is still remem-  ibered. It made him famous throughout Europe, where he sang it in all the  .principal cities to very large audiences.  There was something about his  Jaugh that carried thc audience [with it-  Full of richness, and penetrating, it  proved a valuable assot. He was u  clever dancer in addition to his other  talents as a minstrel, and originated  the dance where the whole width of  the stage had to be covered iii two  jumps.  Burgess invariably demanded his  salary in advance. An incident occurred in Philadelphia when he first went  there. He drove to the theatre in a  cab alone. At the time he vvas the  feature of the show, but the manager  had the reputation of not paying sal-  ���aries. The cab was driven to the kerb  and in it the minstrel waited. It was  the first night in the Quaker City, and  the house was packed. The cab waited  ���for. some time, when., finally some one  told the manager that a cab with a tall  gentleman with side whiskers in it was  standing in the street.  The manager came out in .rather a  blustery way and remarked, "Who are  vou and what do you want ?"  "I am 'Cool' Burgess."  The officious personage opened the  door of the cab and with a profound  bow asked the minstrel to alight.  "But there ls a man to be paid,"  said Burgess, "uud I have no money."  "I haven't either just now," was the  reply.  "Then the door of this cab stays  shut,"was the firm rejoinder.  The manager paid the salary before  the show began.  George L. Primrose, to-day ono of  the eldest minstrels in America, thus  pays tribute to the veteran "Cool" Burgess :���  "I regarded 'Cool' Burgess," said  Mr. Primrose, "as the dean of minstrelsy. He was one of the best laugh-  makers ever produced. Back of the  stage we all loved 'Cool' Burgese. Who  will ever forget Shoo Fly! Don't  Bodder Me' ? When a minstrel show  struck town it was a box for 'Cool'  Burgess. We all loved him, all honored him and emulated him.  "When the history of minstrelsy is  to be written, in my opinion, the name  of'Cool' Burgess will be on the first  line of the first page. Ask any old  New York theatregoer. He will tell  you thut 'Cool'Burgessvwas the best  'niggsi" minstrel New Yorls ever saw."  Lew Docksteader wired from Kansas  City:���"The death of 'Cool' Burgess  almost obliterates the real comedians  of early days. His career, was one ray  of sunshine until prosperity enabled  hhn'to retire twenty years ago with a  competency. During the seventies  he commanded ��300 weekly from John  Stetson and Josh Hart, while men almost equally famous in his Hue were  getting $40. His rough-and-ready  negro dialect humor was his own, and  of the old-timers only John-Hart and  'Watermelon' Andrews were in the  Burgess class."

Let it be conceded  that Mr. Shaw is smart. He haa written Plays Pleasant and Unpleasant,  Man [and Superman, Candida and  other startling productions that have a  glitter which is assuredly not gold. To  hit a man when he is dead is an aetion  quite to be expected from a creature  who has shrieked his way into notice.  Mr. 'Willard has shown that the statement concerning Irving's prevention  of the production of Shaw's plays in  London is absurd ; but it occurs to us  that if anyone could give the Shaw  person aphasia he would confer a benefit ou a Jong-suffering pub.ic. The  tiresome writer of alleged dramas  created some surprise by his denunciation of the works of a writer named  Shakespeare, who was born in the  sixteenth century and "whose produc-  Ancillary letters bf probate have been  taken out by the Toronto General  Trusts Corporation for that portion of  t heestateofMrrEd m u nd=Barker -Van  Koughnet,a retired naval captain, who  lived near Stevenage, County of Hartford, England.

But it is just possible that  long after Mr. Shaw's mud-pie. creations have been trampled into the extremely common clay from which they  were moulded, the carven beauty of  The Tempest and Hamlet may remain  to cheer our inarticulate souls. Mr.  Shaw's latest, screeching makes clear  two facts'concerning himself ;-that he  is the common or garden variety of  cad, and that, while Truth may be  found at the bottom ofa well, Mr. Shaw  is not a diving expert. A writei in  tbat decorous publication, The Fortnightly Review, quoting the opinion  of another, says; "Artistic Tempera-.  menTT^TlTi^is^Ou^h^liin^r=i=It:  simply means a combination of  damned bad manners aud swelled  head." It is painfully evident that  the creatorof Candida has the artistic  temperament in an acute form.

A  murmur of ;applause suddenly swt lied  into another roar, and no other words  were spoken. "JSir. Henry was deeply  moved, and could only repeatedly wave  his hands in thanks.

In appointing Aid. Gillett as acting-  mayor, the council have certainly consulted the best interests of the city, and  the appointment meets with general  approbation. Mr. Gillett is a practical  man and possesses information that  will be beneficial to the city. Asa  contractor he- has had many of tlie  best buildings in the city built under  his supervision^ and it is to his credit  that he never slighted his work. No  doubt he will give tlie same attention  to the affairs of the city, at.d he should  receive the hearty co-operation of  the citizens in the task he has undertaken.  dozen enthusiastic member.<4fiFfiie>tio"  nADCim ciety, including thc president and sec-  (jrVJOOlL j rotary. The election of officers resulted in many changes, including the  president aud secretary. The new officers are capable men, and their election is probably a reward for the enthusiasm they displayed in the work  of the association this year.  "Hooligan," who was at the Opera  House last Monday evening, may have  had troubles, but there was uo reason  why he should have infl cted them on  the public, and charged for the priyil-  ege of doing so. "Hooligan" is a dif  ferent type of Itishman to that ever  seen off the stage, but he succeeded in  creating a laugh or two on his own account. There were a few good special-  ties, but altogether the performance was  scarcely equal to that given by amateurs.  The steamer Kokanee carries the  mails to and from Kaslo every day iu  the week except Sunday. The  Kootenaian wants to kuow why it is  the authorities at Ottawa cannot make  a contract to carry them on Sunday  and by so doing give Kaslo a daily mail  service instead of the farce which now  exists by the Sunday mail nor, being  delivered to the boat. Acontrnct with  the C. P. R. to carry the mails on Sunday would right the matter. .

One of the most memorable of the  many special performances of the late  Sir Henry Irving was that which took  place at the time of the Dhmond Jubilee of her late Majesty, says a writer  in the St. James Gazette, Irving had  ir.vited the officers of all tjie colonial  contingents then In London to  to visit the Lyceum. The invitations  were eagerly accepted, and from floor  to ceiling the theatre was crowded with  hardy colonials, bearded Sikhs, sturdy  Glioorkhas, black soldiers from the  Gold Coast, yellow men from China,  and representatives from every  outpost of the Empire. The brilliancy  aud variety of the uniforms made a  picture of fascinating interest. Mr.  Toole looked on the scene with delight  in his e> es, and Miss Ellen Terry occupied a box and was cheered and  cheered again when the audience knew  Lawler,*- Governor of the Provincial  Gaol at Winnipeg, which occurred  early in the i week. Governor Lawler  was a splendid type of the old-time  British soldier, and distinguished himself in many eneagements during the  Crimean War. He was an interesting  conversationalist,-- particularly when  relating his: experiences in foreign  lands. For the past fifteen years he  held the position of Governor of. the  Provincial Gaol at Winnipeg, an office  which he filled with great credit. ���     ���  The theory that King Solomon obtained a large part of his vast wealth  from Southern   Rhodesia  received   a  rude, but apparen~tly~7)ot~"a mortal  shock from Mr. Randall Maclver's  lecture before tlie British Association  at Bulawayo. The theory rests upon  the conclusion thatthe ruins found in  Rhodesia are of ancient date, but Mr.  Maclver declares that none of them is  older than the loth or 16th century.  Mr. Rider Haggard, whose "King  Solomon's Mines" has fascinaced thousands, says that from his own researches and from what he learnt from  the late Mr. Theodore Bent, who made  a profound study of the question, he  certainly believes tbe ruins to be of  Phoenician origin.  Canada's railway commission was to  be a new and powerful weapon that  could be wielded for the defence of  public rights in the battle against the  railways. A few gleams of strength  and usefulness illumined the dawning  hours of the commission's life. The  retirement of Hon. A. G. Blair clouded  the commission in the morning of its  days. The appointment of Hon; A. C.  Killam tothe chairmanship thickened  the gloom. Canada's railway commission, regulated by the prim technicalities of Hon. A. C. Killam, seems to  have degenerated into a curnberer of  the national payrolls, a laggard on the  stage, which it occupies with its acts  of hair-splitting uselessness. Canada  asked for a commission that could give  the people justice and Canada got a  commission that utters pious opinions  that are about as valid and binding  uprn the G. T. R. and C. P. R. as so  many copybook headlines.���Toronto  Telegram.  Just what was the object of holding  an "indignatiou" meetiugin theOpera  House is not apparent on th* surface.  The council had already decided to  take chances before the Full Court  rather than accept thc one-sided proposal submitted by the West Kootenay  Power & Light Con patty. It is not  likely that, an endorsation of the  course of tlie council will have  any influence before the Full Court, so  the resolution passed in that respect  was simply superfluous. As to the suggestion to hold another mayoralty election, it is scarcely conceivable that any  business man in the city would be desirous of bringing on an election at a  season of the year when his attention  will be completely monopolized by the  holiday trade. A canvass of the,businessmen along Baker street discloses  tbe fact that at least 95 per cent of  them are emphatically opposed '. to au  election. The hint that S. S. Taylor  should act as mayor for the rest of the  term placed that gentleman in a very  delicate position, and much sympathy  was felt for bim in hi-? confusion over  the somewhat r* de suggestion. However, his answer was just as spontaneous as the offer, and he decided to accept, providing tbat the citisens as a  whole agreed :to make his election  unanimous. Up to the time of going  to press the citizens'havc not displayed  any undue haste in accepting the otter,  and it seems likel ��� that Aid. W. G.  Alexander Robinson, supt rintendent  of education, has returned to Victoria  after an extt nded tour of the Kootenay  districts. He was away about two  months and, during that time, was  travelling almost constantly, visiting  practically all the public schools in  this section. In order to cover all the  ground Mr. Robinson had to curtail-  his stay at one school to such au extent  as to enable him to call, say "how do  you do" and continue his journey.  Asked regarding the object he stated  it was simply a tour of inspection on  department affairs'.  GilleTt^ilITeniariT~actiirgTua\ or "until"  next January. One thing the meeting  demonstrated, and that is, Nelson has  a lot of first-class off-hand speakers.  Hitherto'Melville-Parry has only been  heard in opera in' this city, but his remarks Thursday night would indicate  great possibilities for Mr. Parry on the  lecture platform. It cost just thirty  dollars foi the Opera House to hold the  meeting, a large sum when all thiugs  are taken into consideration.  When your principles are few,  Your ideas far.from new,  And your policy not much the world  to set afore;  Then, though little you've to sny,  You don't give the show away,  But conceal your   mental poverty in  metaphor.  Tom Scanlan, the genial president of  the St. Patrick's Society, is a fluent  speaker. Tjie Economist has always  contended that Tom was the best amateur actor in the city, and his speech  at the "indigestion" meeting Thursday  evening fully established the contention.  The Nelson Agricultural and Industrial Association held its regular meeting last Thursday afternoon. There  were only about twenty present. This  shows a deplorable lack of interest in  the affairs of the society. It is quite  true tbat the report showed a surplus  of $361, but the society as a whole cannot take credit for this ; it was the result of the good work done by half-a-  We must accord to woman a mighty  power in respect of her influence for  good or lor evil on society���nay, upon  the world at large. One code  of ethics for the man and another for the woman is tbe hard unjust law that prevails. The licensed  libertine has hi3 moral slips condoned,  and he may lead a blushing bride to  the altar witii tbe full sanction of her  parents, who know that if she is marrying a Midas, she is also wedding a Sil-  enusand a Satyr,, His victims need  not cry out, for society, as regards  threm, is the adder with deaf ears. It  is all horribly unj. st this, that there  ��� hould be ai different judgment passed  on the woman from that which waits  the man, who has, as likely as not,  dragged her down.

They have always an apron full of stones ready to  throw at the erriug one. Perhaps it is  because the loss of self-respect means  so much more to a woman than 'oa  man that the female sex turn their  thumbs down aud cry "No quarter or  mercy." Weonly know thatit ispiitful  and sad that tbe woman should pay  for the man's equal sin.  Hon. R. F.

"The Roscians." the opera company  booked for the Nelson Opera House,  December 11, 12 and 13, is regarded by  Eastern critics as one _f the best musical organizations now travelling.  Taken collectively the Roscians are  strong, and as individuals each ono  has a personality that shows a strong  actor as well as a singer.

Considering the enthusiasm displayed by certain individuals in pro  moting the candidature of Mayor  Houston ten months ago, the positively indecent haste which many  of these same individuals are now  demanding bis resignation is really.  quite shocking.  The public will be greatly interested in the circular issued by the  Minister of Education, explaining  tbe changes in tbe Public Schools  Act of last session. These changes  were objected to by a few persons.  but there is no doubt that they now  meet with popular approval.   -  'est Kootenay  Wholesale und Retail  Dealers in  For reading during convalescence  the British Medical Journal would  prefcribe literature that cheers lint  does not inebriate, and would eon-  traindicate writers "whose style,  like that of George' Meredith, puts  a constant strain on the understanding of the reader, or. like that of  Mr. Maurice Hewlett, irritates by  its artificial glitter, or, like that of  Marie Corelli, annoys by its frothy  impertinence "  Many newspapers are making the  mistake of supposing that the ex-  postmaster general in addition to  his salary df $io.oo6as a judge will  receive the pension of $$, 500 a Y-ar  as a former member of the cabinet.

VMiieHjuver  SMOKE  THE   CELEBRATED  as being   deserters from their party  oir that account:,   Mr.  Borden does  not demand from his supporters the-  servile endorsement of all his acts,  which is  moie  than can be   said of  ������������������ ' 1  Sir Wilfrid Laurier.  The Liberal papers throughout  Canada are leaking much ado over  what is claimed to be the lepudi-  alion of Mr. Borden hy the Halifax  Herald, a leading Conservative paper. As a matter of fact, the Herald has not repudiated the Conservative leader. It simply exercises its  inalienable right to differ with ihe  Conservative leader vvith regard to  certain measures, the principal objection being registered against the  increase in sessional indemnities  and. the allowance to retired m'nis-  ters. The Herald is uot alone in  this matter. Other Conservative  papers Have taken the same stand,  tut tbey 4o not regard  themselves  If the completely incapable, manlier in which the mails  are handled  in the Kootenay is to be taken as a  fair sample  of  tlie management   of  ihe Post Office department in other  parts of  lhe Dominion, lhat department ceiltiinly needs fixing.    As an  instance, the Phoenix Pioneer says  the mail from the United States destined   for   Phoenix is   made   up  in  sacks on tbe   Great Northern   mail  trains from  Spokane.       \\ hen  the  train arrives at Grand Forks, these  sacks are thrown off,   and the train  ��� the  same  identical    train-goes  un direct lo Phoenix.    The Phoenix  mail is thus leftiu Grand Forks for  a  day, so   that   the   C. P. R.   may  bring it here 24 hours later.      This  has beeu going on   now for  nearly  eight months, ai.d the inconvenience  i'or   this needless  an<i  inexcusable  delay still continues.      The department gives as a reason for this, that  the net  revenue from the  Phoenix  postoffice is only $1,200 per annum,  a.'.d it would cost that much tocarry  the mails to  Phcenix on the Great  Northern.     If this is the principle  on   which the  department  is to be  run, it would seem as if  there were  many   districts   in    Canada   which  should be deprived of mail facilities  altogether-  BRIAR  PIPES.

C, this second day of October, 190").  ROBERT A. RENWICK,  Deputy Assessor mid Collector, NelHon As��c-��smcnt and Collecting District.  CANADA ASKED FOR JUSTICE  AND IS GETTING MET A-  PHYSICS.  An    old     Scotchman    once   remarked :  "When the hearer disna ken  what the speaker is talking  aboot, and when the speaker  hirr.s.l disna ken what he is  talking aboot, that's metaphysics."  A perusal of the decisions  rendered by the chairman ofthe Board  of Railway Commissioners regarding  transportation  questions must  lead  the reader to  believe that, in  the eyes of the Scotchman referred  to, Hon. A. C. Killam would  take  high    rank   as   a   metaphysician.  After reading some of his judgments  covering  transportation   problems,  the student feels compelled to say:  "When the public does not  understand what A. C. Killam  is talking   about, and when A.  C.  Killam   himself  does   not  know what he is talking about,  it may be metaphysics, as  defined by the Scotchman, but it  is not business."'  The man who undertakes to dear  with  transportation   questions   requires to have  an intimate  knowledge of the carrying trade, and it  is no reflection upon Hon. A. C. Kil-  latn's  abilities as a  lawyer to say.  that the youngest boy in the freight  office   of    any   railway   company  knows   more   about  classifications  and tariff's than he'does.     His failure   as  chairman':bf;the  Board of  Railway Commissioners  is mainly  due  to  his want   of   knowledge of  railway business,   and   when Commissioner Killam is frank ' enough  to admit that he is not competent to  criticise  the  tariffs filed  with   his  Board,' it is a public  acknowledgement that he is.not capable of performing  the duties of the trust imposed .upon him.  Judge Killam's ignorance of  transportation matters is only  equalled by his nerve in retaining a  position which he virtually admits  he is not competent to fill.  Hon. A. C. Killam's duty to Canada requires a resignation of the  position he occupies, and the victims of his weakness might respectfully suggest that he should apply  totbeGovernment fora position as-  chief of the Metaphysical Society of  Canada. The country can well afford to pay.him a salary commensurate with his abilities as a metaphysician, but he should gracefully  surrender the private car and other  emoluments of an office that is away  beyond the range of bis powers.  As at present constituted the  Board of Railway Commissioners for  Canada is a roaring farce, and the  laughing stock tit the railway world.
