'"/  NUMBER^  SPIKIT OF THE  IRISH NATION  Contributor's of Celtic Genius  to World's Literature.  The lecture on Thc Spirit of tlie Nation was delivered yesterday, by  Dr. J. K. 'Foran, of the house of commons staff, before a large and appreciative audience.  'After, tracing the history of Irish  music and song, from the days of bards  that were the law-divers as well as the  gift of poetry those of oratory and  statesmanship, and who consecrated  his m< re mature years and more developed talents to the glorious work of  building up a Canadian confederation  ���McGee has no monument, as yet, on  the banks of the Ottawa, beneath tlie  shadow of yon Gothic pile wherein his  voice made the echoes reverberate with  the loftiest expressions of patriotism,  witii the most astounding predictions  of political prophecy."  The closing passages of the lecture  were of surpassing beauty and the pity  is that they cannot be recorded, word  for word, for the edification and instruction of the rising generation. The  * historians of the ancient Celts, down |  to Ossian. and from Ossian to Carolan '! le<*urer depicte i the harmonies ot the  and Carolan to Moore, he came to the, universe, expressed in the babble of  immediate subject of his lecture-the jthe brook, the sighing of the breeze,  establishment of The Nation newspa- jthe rustling of the leaf, the song of  per in Dublin in 1842. He told the Ithe bir<1V the r��11 of the thunder, the  story or how Dillon, Duffy and Davis; roar of the cataract; and then the .in-  cieated that splendid organ, gave it for aud*ble harmonies around'and above  a motto "Educate that you may be j *"�� constelled swarms pealing down  free," and through its instrumentality through Heaven's casemate unutterable  iufused a new spirit into the nation.  In language most graphic and tones  most touching the lecturer related the  short lifd of three years, as editor, poet,  and leader, of Thomas Davis! and his  description of the death of Davis, in  1845. aud the effects of that terrible  blow upon the entire race, was a masterpiece of word painting and pathos.  Following the death  of   that young  PKEMIER AT  GKAND FOKKS  months spent with Dr. Hood Wilson,  .,   Dr. Watson was appointed to  the pas-  Hon.   Messrs.   McBride   and  Green in the Boundary.  songs, the unnumbered spheres of  light resounding with adoration, reverberating with love; and finally the  soul of man attuned in accord with  those ham onies and expressing itself  in music and song.       ��� '���.../.  The songs of the points of the nation  did their work at a special ,time, but,  even though conditions haye changed  and  the Ir. land of to-day is'not the  leader came the story of the numerous   Ireland of sixty years ago, those poems  poets who sprang up, unexpectedly on ��� are relics to be preserved and to be  ou all sides, to take his place. From  each of these brilliant young writers  the lecturer recited a poem ; aud the  selections were so made that he covered almost the whole range of human  sentiments. Dennis Florence McCarthy's Pillar Towers of -Ireland ;  John Keegan's Caoch the Piper ; J. J.  Callanan's Gougane Barra; Clarence  Mangan's Time of the Barmecides;  Davis' Man of Tipperary; Richard  Dalton Williams' Sister of Charity aud  Adieu to Innisfail, were amongst some  of the most striking of those delightfully rendered poems.  But the lecturer also Illustrated, especially in the works of Williams, the  buoyant humor of the Irish under the  most trying ordeals. No words can  describe trie merriment created by the  .recitation of the parodies, perpetrated  on his brother bards, by Williams oyer  the signature of Shamrock. And still  more laugh-creating was tlie recitation  of The   Misadventures of  a Medical  "Stud^t7Th^Ta^nairan"d"otli^r"^m--~  pies of the refined wit, and erudite humor of that master of every string on  the human harp. Dr. Foran then told  of how Williams, disciuraged by the  failure of his paper and of the'48 movement, emigrated to America, taught  belles-letres in an Alabama university  and finally died of consumption at the  town of Thibodeaux, Louisiana. The  poet died in 1SG2 at the outbreak of the  American conflict, and in the hurry of  tbat struggle was buried in a humble  grave in a country churchyard. In  1865 an American regiment coming  home from the war, encamped near the  Crave of Williams, and when they  learned who was buried there they  raised a subbscription and placed a  magnificent monument over the ashes  .ofoiie.of the sweetest singers of the  English tongue. That noble deed  stirred the heart of McGee, who was  theu laboring in Canada at the construction of the confederation. That  gifted soul tuned anew his- harp and  sang one of his most noble songs as a  tribute of' gratitude to the brave soldiers who had so honored the nieiuon  ofa brother bard.  After reciting McGee's splendid  poem, Dr. Foran said : "Davis, the  founder of The Nation, sleeps under  Hogan's masterpiece of sculpture in  Mt. Jerome; Williams, liis successor  as poet of The Nation, sleeps beneath  the granite monument raised by loving hands on the banks of the Mississippi ; but McGee, Who gave his harp  to the same cause and fought the same  battles, who moreover added to the  tn nsmitted to future generations  They are like the splendid pillars and  rich mosaics buried under the ashes of  Pompeii; and the lavas of Herculan-  eum, evidences of the taste, tlie art,  the culture of a former epoch, and  models for the imitation of children  yet unborn. The day of Ireland's legislative autonomy is at hand, democracy is abroad, even in- Russia, and  constitutional self-government is the  order of the day. And in the chorus  of rejoicing over'Ireland's triumphant  cause no voice will be louder or more  sincere than that of self-governing  Canada���Canada, at whose birth as a  confederation McGece, a poet of the  nation,, presided ; Canada, whose voice  has so often pleaded tlie cause of legislative autonomy for Erin ; Canada,  whose sons opened their arms and  their hearts, their tl wis and tlieir  hearths to the exiled Irish in the days  of famine, fever and expatriation.  Gratitude begets gratitude and love  enki ncl IesToveTy* i n~re tffrh^for~Canacla's  spmpathies the children of the Celtic  race will, each in'his own sphere of  usefulness, consecrate his. energies,  his talent3, his every gift to tbe uplifting cif this fair Dominion, so that in  the near future, this country may realize the dreams of her best statesmen  and patriots and become, with her  matchless constitution. .  "The northern arch whose vast proportions  Span the skies from sea to sea ;  From Atlantic to Pacific  Home of unborn millions free."  ���Ottawa Citizen  G�� and Forks, Nov. 15.���Hon.  Richard McBride, Premier, and Hon.  R. F. Green, Chief Commissioner of  Lands and Works, aceompan ed by  Mr. Childs, secretary to the Chief Commissioner ^arrived here on Saturday by  the C. P. R. from Nelson and were met  at the station by E. Miller, president of  the Conservative Association, and  other representative citizens.  Shortly after tlieir arrival they drove  to the Granby smelter and were shown  through the works by Superintendent  Hodges. This occupied the major portion of the afternoon. The eveniug  was spent by the Ministers in receiving  deputations from the Board of Trade,  City Council and representatives of the  East Kootenay coal barons. Hon Mr.  Green referring tothe rebuildingof the  bridges in this section said that his department would bear half the expense  of putting in the new bridge at First  Street if the city would do the balance.  He also stated that arrangements for  the building of the Carson bridge  would'' be made at once.  Ex-District License Comaiissioner  A.'E. Rainey, who interviewed the  Ministers regarding his dismissal from  office, was informed by the Premier  that hi dismissal would not have  taken place if the Government had not  understood that he had resigned.  At an informal meeting of Conservatives also held last evening, speeches  were made by both Ministers and leading Conservatives present. Superin--  tendent Hodges ofthe Granby smelter  was present and spoke at some length.  He surprised those present by statiug  thit the Granby Company paid an annual tax to the Provincial Government  of some $35,000. which was derived  from various sources.  [ torate of the Free Church in Logieal-  inond���the Drumtochty of the Brier  Bush stories���where he spent two of  the happiest years of his life. Here he.  gathered material for those famous  stories which bave touched two worlds  to kughter and to tears.  A pastorate of three years followed,  as colleague and successor to Dr. S.  Miller, of Free St. Matthew's, Glasgow-. Here he "learned how to preach"  by devoting himself most assiduously  to pulpit preparation, with tlie result  that his reputation steadily increased.  Here he begun to develop that vein of  humor which has found its best ex- i  pression in his stories.  Dr. Watson was called to the pastorate of the Sefton Park church in  1880. He had to build the church almost from the foundation. During the  quarter of a century he has made the  church one of the most flourishing in  the country. For the last twenty  years every seat has been let, the communicants' roll numbers over 700, and  the regular income is about ��5,500. Altogether about ��150,000 has been raised  by the congregation, the sustentation  fund contributions alone amounting to  nearly ��18,000.    '  The story of the rise of Dr. Watson  into the/literary firmament must be  told by another writer. But one incident connected with that meteoric  period I have on good authority.  When the unknown authorship of the  Kail Yard Stories was being widely  discussed, and variously attributed by  literary critics to Barrie, Crockett, and  others of less repute, "Ian Maclaren"  and his editor kept their own secret.  Bat one day Dr. Watson received a  postcard from-pro_'"XJeorge AV Smith,  containing the words, "Well done Ian  Maclaren," to which Dr. Watson returned the laconic answer, "Well read,  Higher Criticism."  EVENTS AND.  GOSSIP  A/f  Things Talked of During the  Week in Nelson.  Peaceful and full of hope, as they say  in.obituary notices, the two old Conservative associations have passed over  tiie great divide. Like the deceased  mother-in-law, there was no complaint  whatever���everybody was satisfied.  Precisely at S.30" o'clock Thursday  evening, both associations met in their  separate meeting places and decided  by resolution to hang up their bruised  arms for monuments, so that in future  tlieir stern alarums might be changed  to merry meetings. Atthe Liberal-  Conservative Union meeting, Dr. Rose  took the chair, and Rex Macdonald  presided at the piano. Mr, Macdonald  played the Dead March, while R. J.  Clarke lead in the funeral hymn. After  a few remarks, in which the virtues of  the deceased were extolled in moderate but appropriate language,- tlie  meeting of November 9th was ratified,  and loyalty pledged to the new association. E. C. Wragge, secretary of  the Union"*, reported that it was solvent at the final hour, but there were  no legacies for the next of kin. Then  it was moved to dissolve, the motion  being carried unanimously. Similar  proceedings were held by the Conservative Association, the funeral oration  being delivered by JF red Starkey. The  pallbearers were all frieuds of the deceased.. Strange as it may seem, the  greatest sorrow over the death of the  two old-associations is; expressed by  their common -.enemy���the Grits.  Requiescat in pace.  vices. He realizes that the city Has incurred heavy liabilities during the  year, and he is prepared to give liis  time without any compensation whatever. When it is considered that he  has a large business of his own that  requires his immediate attention, the  sacrifice he is making becomes greater  and all the more praiseworthy. Aud  added to this, W. G. Gillett has peculiar qualifications for the business he is  now called upon to attend to for the  cily.  FROM THE  STKAY POETS  Things that Furnish the Muse  with Inspiration.  The ladies of the Presbyterian  Church have every reason to feel gratified with the success attending their  potato supper held last Thursday, in  the Griffin block. During the day at  least 250 sat down to luncheon and  dinner, and all expressed satisfaction at  the bill of fare presented. The following ladies assisted : Mesdames' 'Hood,  McCulloch, Riblet, Hunter, D. M.  Macdonald, Dawson, Seaman, Waldie,  Weir, Moore, McLean, Hamilton, J.  Johnston and McLean-Fraser, and  Misses Cunningham, Dancy, McBeath,  Richardson, McCallum, Hipperson,  Lynn, Thorn, Moffat, Thomas, Moody,  Moore. Mrs. D. Rr. Macdonald and  Mrs. Ludwig presided at the carving  table.  P. Lamont is now the father of an  interesting daughter, tlie little visitor  arriving at an early hour Wednesday  morning.  v ,.  "IAN MACLAREN'RETIRES  A Scotchman by Descent, but  Born in England.  Dr. John Watson has just laid down  "tliTbWd elfT hTtook^u ^  Sefton Park, Liverpool. The occasion  is one of more than usual interest, as  for at least ten years he has been regarded as one of our foremost preachers,  and one of our most successful witers.  Twelve years ago be had a denominational reputation. At one bound his  fame became national and international.  Although a Scotchman by descent,  Essex claims his birth. He was born 55  years ago at Manningtree, where his  father was an excise officer. Thus he  is, or ought to be, in the prime of life,  and some surprise has been expiessed  at his retirement from the ministry at  such a comparatively early age. But  as he stated tothe Presbytery when  assigning the reasons for his resignation.  "lam retiring simply because I am  worn out and cannot go on. I have  never been a strong man. I have even  had to do my work with a hindrance  of bodily weariness, and now my  ^strength seems to be nearly exhausted.  What I saw was that if I continued  the work of Sefton Park church would  not be thoroughly done, and, therefore,  when Sefton Park was at its best, and  before my health had utterly failed, I  determined to resign."  Previous to his acceptance of the  pastorate at Sefton Park, Dr. Watson  was assistant pastor to Dr. Hood Wil-  soirof the Baiclay church, Edinburgh,  a position held iu great honor by Free  church probationers, and which was  later on held by Henry Drummoud  and   James  Stalker.      After  twelve  THE MEETING NUISANCE.  Editor of Thk Kconoji 1ST:  Sik : Isit not about time the meeting  nuisance should be abated ?

The  question is a serious one, and the meeting fiend should be discouraged in a  course that must lead to domestic infelicity in homes that might otherwise  be happy.  S. F.  TIMELY WARNING.  Editor of .he Economist:  Sir : I would like to know if the  pedestrian has still any rights left in  which he may be protected by the law.  Twice this week I have been nearly  run down by reckless drivers and once  when I protested, I was laughed at  by the offender. In Nelson drivers of  grocery wagons in particular do not  seem to realize that serious consequences may some day arise from their  reckless driving. Some one will be  killed, but the offender will plead that  it was accidental. He had better see  that I am not on the jury that tries  him.   Yours truly,  Essex.  Some one has suggested the wisdom  of. the new Conservative Club holding  fortnightly meetings during the winter  months, making discussions on political subjects the principal feature. There  arc many bright young men in the  Club, and no doubt they could be prevailed upon to read papers on questions affecting politics and the past and  future of the Conservative Party.  This suggestion is a good one, and if  carried into effect much benefit to the  party in Nelson should result.  The Badminton Club, of Victoria,  one ofthe oldest in the Province, is to  be closed up. The reason for doing so  is that the Union and Pacific Clubs  have now a larger membership, aud  most of the seventy-five members of  the Badminton belong as well to one  of the others. The club has been a  famous centre for English big-game  hunters, like A. S. Reed, whose record  pair of antlers adorn the walls ; Captain Woolley, Waiburton Pike and  others.  .After experimenting for nine or ten  mon tbs-witlra-tiine-table'thatrhasonly  confused its patrons, the tramway has  gone back to the original schedule.  This may be regarded as an admission  that the metlnd adopted in other parts  of the world of taking time from the  terminals instead of a central point is  the correct one. Itis quite certain  that traffic will increase by the return  to the former schedule. Speaking of  tramway matters, it must be pointed  out that the numerous breaks in the  service the past month or so are rather  annoying. Waiting for a car for half-  an- hour or so, and then realizing that  it is not running at all, is not likely to  increase the popularity of the service.  It is easy to understand why n breakdown should occur occasiorally, but  they have been so numerous tiie past  month or so as to demand investigation and explanation. It is consoling,  however, to have Superintendent  Weeks' assurance that he will have  things in shape shortly, so that there  will be less cause for dissatisfaction and  disappointment in future.  No man^has done more thau James  Johnstone, late president of the Nelson  Agricultural and Industrial Association, to direct attention to the possibilities of the Kootenays as a fruit-growing country. Iu seasou and out of season Mr. Johnstone has been ready with  his voice and his pen to proclaim the  advantages of the Kootenays in this  regard, and that he has accomplished  wonders no one will deny. Just now  he is having letters printed in the English papers reviewing the development  of this industry in the Kootenays, and  he deals with the subject in a manner  that must carry conviction that the  writer knows whereof he speaks. Men  like Mr. Johnstone are a valuable asset  ofthe country.  Much interest is centred in the programme tor the musical evening at the  Baptist Church next Wednesday. An  excellent programme has been prepared, but the most attractive number  will undoubtedly be ' Miss Crowley's  solo, Tolsti's "Good-bye aud Tell Her  I Love Her So." The music-loving  citizens of Nelson have had opportunity in the past to pass upon Miss  Crowley's singing, and it.is not flattery  to say that she is deservedly popular  and a great favorite. No doubt the  concert next Wednesday evening will  be patronized according to its merit.  Since Nelsan was lirst incorporated  it lias paid a liberal annual salary to  its mayor. Tiik Economist is not  charging that each succeeding mayor  did not earn his salary, but it does  claim that not one of them ever rendered more efficient service to the city  thon the present acting mayor, Aid.  W. G. Gillett. The reason for referring to this matter is that wtiile W. G.  Gillett has contributed so much of his  time to advance the city's interests he  V does not receive one cent for his ser-  Judging by the bookings made by  Mcnager Hoisted, there will be  any amount of good amusement at  the Nelson Opera House during the  next month or so, and the attractions  are all of the better class. The London Bioscope Co. will present a lot of  new views on Nov. 24. "Jerry.from  Kerry," a company with a band orchestra, is booked for November 27and  28. "The Hustler," a farce comedy,  appears on December 7 and 8. Willi  this company is the famous Rollo  troupe, seen here during " exhibition  week. The great event, however, will  be the visit of the Roscian Opera Company, under the management of Win.  Cranston. This organization has been  booked for three nig tits, December 11,  12 and 13. It is one of tlie finest musical aggregations travelling, and as  the citizens of Nelson are deservedly  famous for their love of music, the  Roscians can count upon a succesful  engagement.

The Nelson Choral Society is work-  in g with unabated vigor on Hayden's  Oratorio, "The Creation," and it is now  certain that this ambitious attempt ou  the part of our musical amateurs will  be crowned with complete success. Tlie  rehearsal held last Monday evening  was conducted by Mr. Bodmer, with  Mrs. Hannington at the piano, Mr.  Macdonald, who usually wields tlie  baton, being called away to join his  voice in the political harmony which  has been charming the senses of our  citizens lately. The undertaking of  a work such as "The Creation" is in  itself evirt-iae t.f the growth in this  community of true musical tasle, and  when its production is an accomplished  fact, Nelson will have no cause to feel  other than proud of the result.

The cily of Guelph, Ont., has  been operating a street railway as a  municipal enterprise, for two years.  Street railways in Canada bave not  been big dividend payers; as a  matter of fact, excepting in the larger  cities, street railways have brought  ruin to tbe promoters. We all know  what bas happened in Nelson, but  the experience of Guelph may be  repeated here if the city applies  business methods to the operation  of the tramway. Here is what tbe  Guelph Herald has to say on the  subject of its tramway : "We are  already within -measurable distance  of the time when the operation of  the road will not cost the city a  single cent, and may possibly yield  a ni.e revenue. Tbe gratifying  situation has not"' been brought  about by good luck or accident. It  is the fruits of energetic, careful,  progressive direction of the enterprise by the commissioners.

ECONOMIbx  THE ALIENATION OF  THE GENERAL  I FIRST encouiitered Mm Jn IK*  streets of a Montana "cow-town,"  where he was affording amusement to a crowd of men and boys,  ���while a tipsy musician was at-  - tempting the Boulaneer March  oa an antique piano. To save him  irom further abuse I bought him, and  ever afterwards he, was known to his  little world as "Gei. ,-ral Eoulanger."  "We gTew to look upon the General a��  an interesting scientific phenomenon,.  His was a soul saturated with hate to1  ���all men. Any amiable Qualities he may  ���have possessed In early youth had been  killed by abuse. He knew 'but' distrust  and fear. We determined to reclaim  him, and ln our lonely camp the Gen-  ���eral became; the object of such flattering: attention that only his unconquerable misanthropy keiH him from becoming an arrant snob. For a long  Vme our efforts wero unavailing, but  as the weeks went by I thought I noticed a little less shrinking, fewer  g-nowis, and a faint gleam of recognition in the glassy eyes when I approached. I felt the thrill of conquest,  and redoubled my efforts. The heart ol  stone was at last touched, and my theory In regard to "yaller dogs" was  correct.  We returned to the outskirts of civilization, and one day, driving once  more to the town, so filled with pain-  ful memories for the General, I wa;i  eurprlsed to "behold him again ln the  street, slinking about with otho.rs ol  his kind. The slight results of our pa-  ' tient labors were in peril. It "would  never do to allow the GeneraV.s slowly  growing faith in .man to be nipped In  the bud by further town life, so with  Infinite pains I secured him and tied  him to the back of my wagon.. I remonstrated with him gently, as fc-e lay  cringing In the dust, for his base desertion of the only friends he had ever  known.  The painful journey homeward began. The General betrayed a distinct  unwillingness to ride, so he was allowed to follow at the end of a long  rope behind. "With his usual acumen,  he fancied the strength of two half-  broken broncos to be as naught compared to his fiery determination to remain In town. So he sat down. With  an expression of pained surprise on his  countenance he traversed a few hundred yards of the dusty road in this  position, and th=n tried his back. It  was quite in keeping with the eccentricities of the General's mental processes  that a simpler method did not occur to  him, until, striking a deep rut. he was  . hurled high Into the air, and hy some  happy chance alighted on the extremities nature had provided for purposes  of locomotion. Then, with bowed head,  he trotted contentedly along. I turned  to look at him occasionally, and flattered myself that I saw in his demeanor evidences of regret at his folly, and  * determination to do better in the future. I spoke encouragingly te bins,  but he was too absorbed in meditation  to look up.  A hot afternoon's ride brought us to  an irrigating ditch. After rattling over  the few loose plank3 which served as a  bjridge, I stopped to repair a break ln  the harness. The General, hot ar.d  dusty, >at once dashed into the llttile  stream to drink and bathe. With my  hack to the tired horses I watched him.  As I looked he performed his colossal  act of folly, the final episode in his  witless career. After refreshing himself on one side of the tiny bridge, quite  unmindful of his connection with my  tear axle, he laboriously splashed under the bridge and came out the other  side. Cooled by his bath, he came to  the side of the wagon and looked  Bweetly up at me. Immensely impressed by his sagacity, I -Was on the  point of alighting to free him from his  dangerous predicament, when the hand  of fate, ever turned against him, struck  the last blow. .:'������'.  A fly stung, my off "bronco, and with  a squeal he and his startled mate  rushed madly denyn the read. I was  hurled to the bottom of the wagon,  but not before I saw the GeneraJ turn  ���a=perfect=Hback=somersault���and=HHHsi.oot-  toward the stream. In a cloud of duirt  foe disappeared into the water, and then  followed a symphany of liowls as he  traversed the jark and damp nether  Bide of the bridge, to be shot up-into  daylight once more by the united  Strength of two frightened broncos. In  a shower of spray he struck the road  twenty feet from the bridge, and did  not gain his feet until I had brought  the horses to a standstill. Once more I  turned to the General. He was a pitiable sight. Covered with mud and  Ivalf strangled, he quivered with cold  ��,nd rage.  As we traversed the short dlstanct  to camp I tried to fancy what his reflections were. Knowing him as well  as I did, I felt sure that iho looked  upon the past weeks of kindness aa  part of an elaborate scheme to win his  confidence enough to practice (.Vis last  Insult upon him. I dreaded the consequences of the episode, and olauned  new blandishments to reinstate myself  in his favor.  Arriving in camp, my first thought  was to release him from the wagon.  But the water and mud made it difficult to unfasten the knot at his collar.  Feeling keenly the embarrassment of  his position, I untied the rope from the  axle and threw It on the ground.  The General watched me sulkily, and  when the end of that hated rope fell  free he bounded to his feet. With one  final snarl of utter hate and disgust he  was off like a shot; not ln a wild, purposeless circle, but straight as th��.  flight of an arrow acrosi 'the prairie.  Away, he went, with th�� lariat dragging behind him.  With eyes raised to the solitary snow  peak a hundred miles away he flew  from us, with a heart full of. hate and  a, grim determination to put'ohalf a  continent, if need be, between himself  and tyrant man. As I watched tha  little cloud of dust, raised by his hurrying feet, disappear on the horizon,  I realized the futility of battling  against fate.  Then our packer broke the sllencs:  "There goes the ornriest cur in tha  world with the best lariat In Montana."  k-"AtiantIc Monthly."  "Give an example -of how heat expands and cold contracts." "In tha  summer the days are long; in the winter they are short."���"Judge."  Following the summer beat, the present cool evenings make  the thought of a brightly burning fire most attractiye.
