NELSON, B. C, SATURDAY, MAY 2, 1903.  NUMBER 42  ^1  i,  .:  ��� Hi  Jr 1  liSTLInli HmTCII  UilAWSONOTY  The Wager Was $2,000 and  $2 Admission.  IRELAND    VS.    ENGLAND  Results in a Draw, but the Local  Hospital Receives a  Benefit.  In Dawson City was a young Irishman, well educated, generous  and good-hearted, but noisy and  boisterous to a degree. We will  call him Terence���or Terry for  short, writes Mr. Luscombe Sear-  elle.       A  It was Terry who went to the  bank to try and negotiate an overdraft, and, when the manager politely inquired, "How much do you  want ?" replied, "How much have  you got ?"  It was Terry, after he had successfully arranged the overdraft,  who quickly exhausted tbe same in  share speculations, but continued  drawing cheques which the bank  manager promptly>dishonored,,and  it was Terry who, in a towering  rage, interviewed the said manager  and informed him that if he dared  to dishonor another of his cheques  he would remove his overdraft" to  another bank.  In addition to his financial capacity, he could whistle divinely. No  operatio "scena" had any difficulties for him. He was, naturally,  proud of his accomplishment, as  hie services were always in request  at smoking concerts and other establishments whore Dawsonites  were wont to congregate during the  long winter nights.  As the outcome of a confidential  interview between a few choice spirits, an advertisement appeared one  morning in tho papers to the effect  that wo had a man ready to whistle any one in the city for $'2,000.  Torry Bwallowcd tho bait voraciously, accoptod tho challenge and  got up a syndicate to find tho  money. The match was duly mado  and ratified.  Tho man wo wore pitting against  Toifry was a good-looking yorng  Englishman, who had just arrived  on a ploasuro tour, and who was  up (tyr anything that promised fun.  He did not protond to whistle. It  was as much as ho could do to got  through " Homo, Sweet Homo,"  without tumbling down in a fit;  but ho' suited onr purpose, arid  joined with spirit in tho affair. Tho  match was to tako pluco in tho  largo dining-room of tho loading  hotel.  Wo hired tho dining hull, whJoh  oould ootnfortably accommodate  800 persons. Wo advertised tho  match with big postors and news-  papor announcements, and published In largo typo tho fact that a.  limited numbor of tickets would bt*  issued at $2 oaoh, tho procoods to  bo given to tho hospital.  For   thrco   days'  nothing   wuh  talked about but tho coming match  botwoon Torry and tho Unknown.  On tho appointed night tho  hall  Wm crowded.   Tho publio had  no  iiloa whotlior onr man could whis-  tlo or not.  At precisely I) p. m. tlio  12 judges, all in  tho plot, accompanied by a roforoo, entered solomn-  ly   and   took   thoir   Boats  at  tho  Jud rob' table.   A well-known  oiti-  Kon. as   our representative,   then  marohod up  to tho  tablo nnd do-  ^ouitod a canvua   bag  containing  $2,000 10 gold   before   the  judges  Terry's backers did likewise (there  were   ten    of   them).    The  judges'  theD proceeded  to turn   the money  out   on   the  table   and   solemnly  count it.  The referee announced that our  money was correct, but that Terry's  was $5 short. Terry promptly borrowed it from an admiring Hibernian and the referee announced  that all was O. K.  The money was'then given to the  landlord of the hotel to be deposited  in the safe till the verdict was announced, and then the $4,000 was  to be handed to the winner by tho  presiding judge.  Thsre was a large contingent of  bookmakers present, but as the ability of our man was not generally  known, the betting opened rather  flat.  It waB decided by the judges that  each competitor should whistle  three pieces, and the points should  be awarded a8 follows :  1. Ten points for execution.  2. Ten points for expression.  3. Ten points for general excellence.  4. The cornpetiior gaining the  largest number of points to receive  the money.  The presiding judge made a thrilling speech on tho art of music. He  didn't know anything about it, but  he made the audience believe he  did, which in this world amounts to  the same thing.  He affirmed that they were met  together, not to witness an ordinary  common or garden test, but a great  international musical conflict between England and Ireland, and  concluded with a touching allusion  to wives and sweethearts, which although not at all germane to the  subject, fetched the house.  Amid breathless silence Terry  and the Unknown drew lots who  was to commence. Terry won and  amid a chorus from his compatriots  of "Go it, Terence, me buoy !"  "Pulverize 'im, Terry 1" "Chuck  it off yir chist, me beauty 1" he approached tho piano. Thb dark-  haired pianist played the symphony, and away went Torry with  coloratura, floratuin, bravura, and  all tho othor "uras" found in musical parlance.  At the conclusion of his solo, tho  applause was immense. Tho bookmakers offered to lay G to 4 on, and  our contingont took them ovory  timo.  Thon. tho Unknown, with a gleam  of confidence, approached tlio piano. Amid a profound rulenco he  began to whistle. Ho had chosen  for his first effort that touching ballad, "Fop Goos tho YVonsol." Ai  tho conclusion of this classic thoro  woro a good many hisses, whilo Iho  hookies offered to lay 10 wn Torry,  Our contingont took ovory hot offered,  Thon Torry   whistled  "Robert I  toi quo j'uime," divinely.  Tho Unknown, in response, whistled "Wo Won't Go Homo Till  Morning" In a ktiy a noto flatter  than tho piano.  Tho odds on Torry wont up with  a bound to 20 to 1. Our lot took  ovory hot���and smiled.  Terry for hit? Inst solo whistled  "Tho Dear Littlo Shamrock," und  iho enthusiasm wns unlimited.  Our man, not to ba outdo no in  patriotism, attempted "Rulo IM-  tannin." Five Hturdy John Bulls  fainted and hud to ho curried homo  on shutters.  Tho judgorf thon retired to u side  room to consider thoir verdict.  Thoy remained uwny Hourly an  hour playing poker.

Working Hundreds of Feet Below  the Surface of the  Water.  ,k  Duiing last winter for sixty-four  days the steamer Stanley was imprisoned in the ice fields and for  thirty-nine days the Minto was in  similar jeopardy." It was a demonstration of the dangers and difficulties of keeping up communication between Prince Elward and  the mainland.  When the steamship was first approached, and relieved by coal and  provisions from the Minto, she had  only eighteen tons of coal left and  very few provisions.  Many strange stories and adventures are recorded of such experiences, but few are as interesting as  the interview given by diver F. S.  Henrion, who placed the new blades  on the Minto propeller shaft.  "The suit I wore weighs 200  poundF," heBaid. "Eighty pounds  of lead are carried on the shoulders  co keep-me down in the buoyant  salt water. My boots weigh thirty  pounds. A large hose tube conveys tlie air to my helmet, and is  pumped down by two men above  the surface, through means of a  special air pump.  "It is extremely hard to pump  the air down farther than a hundred feet, but I have frequently  worked at a much greater depth.  The safety rope acts both as a signal and life preserver. The men  on the surface frequently pull the  rope once. If no answer comes after repeating the signal three times,  they draw mo to the surfaco, knowing that something has gono wrong  at the bottom.  "I have, on ono occasion, worked  six hours below tho surface without  onco coming up to tako a rest.  "In repairing and placing in position tho now propelling blades on  tho stoamship Minto I was not moro  than two hours submerged at any  ono timo, und I completed my task  in about a wook. The task of placing tho Minto's blades in position  was a fairly hnrd one. I brokesov-  oiul chimin, and I found tho nuts  and comont vory difficult to got off.  As a result of tho steamship's hard  work in tho ico, I found only tho  stumps of tho libidos loft on tho  shaft. Sometimes I find it nocosBary  aftor oxamining tho bottom of a  ship, to como to tho Burfaco nnd  malco a sketch of tlio work which  mus*' bo dono. This must bo accomplished, of courso, from memory.  "Ono nf iho saddest duties whioh  I huvo over hud to perform was in  bringing to the surface tho Davidson family,of Halifax. As a result  of a yachting accident in that harbor, eight of tho family woro  drowned.  "Lust year thi.ro was a vory interesting wreck near Ounso, N. S.  Il, wns a lurgo Gorman steamship  which wont nshoro at that point,  and I workod there for three or four  woolen, salving $100,000 worth of  cargo, whioh was afterwards sold in  Now York. Whilo tho stoamor  proved a total wreck, a considerable part of the cargo, oonsiHling of  crockeryware, tinware, etc., was  safely brought to the surface.  [ "I had a very narrow escape for  my life some three years ago, when  working off the coa��t of Yarmouth,  N. S. It was in connection with  the beautiful new Allan liner Cas-  tilian, which went ashore on the  ledges at that point. I was in the  hold of the ship, under water, when  a number of tbe barrels of apples,  forming part of the cargo, suddenly  shifted, rolling me to the top of the  under deck ceiling, and pinning me  there for upwards of an hour, until  rescued by another diver.  "The air during all that time  was pumped faithfully to me from  the surface, and it was a lucky  thing for me that the rubber hose  tube was not severed in the accident."  How this Great Man Wobbles  on the Labor Question.  right, but under existing circumstances the public are more concerned in what transpired at several of those Cabinet meetings than  in the observance  of an oath   that  was   never  against   an  intended  honest  as    a shield  OLIVER    INVESTIGATION.

The Hamburg-American liner  Assyria, with 1,100 emigrants, has  arrived at Halifax from Hamburg.  A man named George Murdoch  has been killed by a dynimite explosion at the Elizabeth mine near  Fort William.  A contingent of 90 officers and  men of the 43rd D.O. C. R. has left  Ottawa to take part in the military  tournament in New York.  The remains of Samuel Henderson, of Baysville, missing since  November, have been found. He  was nearly 80 years of age.  The Cornwall Canal lock-tenders  and lock-masters have been notified  by the Government that their pay  has been raised 25 cents per day.  Peter Johnson, of bag punching  and patent medicine fame in Eastern Ontario, is in trouble for shooting and wounding a man near  Laxton.  The C. P. R.'s newly acquired  Atlantic steamer Lake Champlain  could not get up the Gulf owing to  the ice pack and had to run into  Halifax.  It is announced that the Canadian Northern will build another  elevator at Port Arthur this summer with a capacity of three and a  half million bushels.  Tho names of Dan McGillicuddy  and Geo. E.

M.  47th Foot, who came to Canada  with his regiment at tho time of  tho Trent affair, and was at Ridge-  way, died at Hamilton last wook.  Tho C. P.

Tho skeleton of a man with a  ropo around his nook was found in  troo near Ssruguo's lumber camp,  Rainy River. Thoro was a man  lost in that region six years ago,  and thoro is no doubt that tho remains aro his.  At tho business mooting of the  Hoard of Management of tho Anglian!! General Missionary Society  at London it wan stated that application for incorporation of tlie  society would bo mado at tho prefloat session of Parliament.  The second reading of the bill introduced by the labor0 member,  Hawthornthwaite, providing for  penalties for any interference or  discrimination against men joining  a labor organization was supported  by four  members   only���of which  John Houston was one. "Practical" politics is again to the fore.  "One day I must vote in the interests of labor, and another I can  write against it," is a poor principle. The railwaymen can never  forget the same man's "wobbling''  inconsistencies. Votes, speeches  and write-ups should be of the same  tenor in order to carry conviction.  The.virtuous indignation of certain members of the House at allegations contained in a recent issue  of the Vancouver Province is to bf  commended, but dragging the editor before the bar of the House will  not prove the statements contained  in the article are false. A better  plan would be to investigate the  charges and thus give members a  chance to prove their integrity, instead of forcing a defenceless editor  to appear before the bar of the  House for making a statement thai  may or may not be true. The members of the Legislature may feel  that thoir conduct is above suspicion, and then there may be many  who think otherwise. The best  way of testing the matter is to havo  an investigation. Bringing tho editor of the Province before tho bur. of  tho House might havo an opposite  effect to what tho membors would  wish.  There is every indication that  the Laurier government will appeal to the country this autumn.  The fact the premier is not in the  best of health lends color to this  belief.  It would pay the Ontario government to subsidize Frank Sullivan  to keep his mouth closed.  Col. Prior did not know much of  the job he was getting when he took  the leadership of the government,  or he would have passed it up  to some of his friends.  The government at Ottawa, up  to the time of writing, has not been  moved by the pressure brought to  bear upon it to impose a heavy duty  on lead products.  ��� A convention of interior Liberals  will "be held in Nelson next Wed-  nesda}'.  It is probable the next forty-  eight hours will decide the fate ol  the Prior government. It was believed   this morning   that   Lieut.-  (���'.  Governor Joly would refuse assent  io the ratification bill, in which  event dissolution is imminent.  Fire destroyed Lapointe's boarding house, in this city, last night.

IN   GOOD  PRESERVATION  A Pathetic Monument to the Memory of a Former Chief    -  ...   7  Factor. *  Mr. C. E. Perry, C.  E.,  has  arrived at  the city  of Quebec from  Norway House on the Nelson river,  the outlet of Lake Winnipeg, where  he had been in  charge during' the  last winter of the  surveying party  engaged in exploratory and location  work for the  trans-Canadian Railway.    Norway House is  one of the  most impoitant of   the  fur-trading  posts  of  the  Hudson's; Bay Company, the  Indians coming  into it  from all directions for a distance of  250 to 300 miles  in their canoes in  summer and dog sleighs in winter.  In this trade, last year the profitB of  this post exceeded $40,000. ]-.//'���'  One of the most prized possessions of Norway House is a sun  dial constructed there by the famous Arctic explorer, Sir John  Franklin, with his initials",'���',supposed to have been carved by him-  -ac\i, cut into the lead covering.- -It-  is placed upon a pillar of spruce  four and a half feet high in the garden of the chief factor. The copper  disc, which is covered with the lead  plate already described, is afoot in  diameter, and there is also a little  copper index. The longitude and  latitude of Norway House are  marked upon the plate. The wood  nnd metal work are as good as new,  and though relic and curiosity  hunters of all kinds have made repeated efforts to get it they have always been refused. '  Ono of the most pathetic landmarks of the place is a monument  erected to the memory of a former  chief factor of Norway House, who  was accidentally drowned ih a rap-  Tho  successful  ,  .  Viewed in oven themoBt favorable  light, tho invo-tigution now goinp  on at Victoria, doos not look woll  for tho govommont. It is vory evident that tho doalings botwoon tho  govommont and tho C. P. R. were  not conductod in good faith,  but whether or not thoro was anything wovbo than this remains to  bo demonstrated. From somo of  tho oiidonco it would appear thnt  ovon tho wholo Cabiuot wns not  awaro of tho arrangements being  mado, which is in itself a suspicious  circumstance It would not be  fair to oithor sido to tho discussion  to judge of tho mnttor on tho evidence so far presented, but it is not  going to far too say that many have  formed thoir own conclusions as to  tho conduct of certain ministers.  Tho "strenuous" efforts being put  forward by Mr. Houston to have  tho Anglicans of tho Kootenay separated from the 'Anglicans of the  coast might give riso to the suspicion that tho mom her for Nelson  district hud decided to throw in bin  lot with tho Episcopalians. Such,  however, is not tho ousn.

Ore of the crying needs of British Colum  bia is intelligent legitlation. How can the  natural resources of the country be developed  ���when the laws made for the purpose of directing and regulating their development defy  comprehension ? As an instance, take the  bill recently introduced by our member, Mr.  Houston. Thia bill consists of two sections,  aa follows :  1. This Act may be cited as the "Petroleum  Claim Act, 1903.''  2. A petroleum or other mineral claim may  be loeated on any unoccupied Crown land, or  on any Crown-granted land in which the  Crown has reserved the petroleum rights, by  any person authoriz-d 10 enter on and locate a  mineral claim under the provisions of the  "Mineral Act" and amending Actp, and any  such petroleum or other mineral oil claim  shall be located, worked and held under the  provisions of the "Mineral Act" and amending Acts : Provided all such claims are located and recorded as "petroleum claims."  Now, let Mr. Hou-Uon read the "Mineral  Act" regarding the locating, working and  holding of claims, and then tell us how a petroleum claim is to be dealt with under his  proposed act. It is not our intention to go  into the matter in detail here, a8 tbe absurdities and inconsistencies that are created by  this very feeble effort at legislation will strike  every one who gives tho matter the slightest  thought. Asa starter, however, imagine a  prospector armed with the "Mineral Act,' trying to locate a mineral claim according to its  provisions. He fir.-)t finds that this act requires that he shall di-cover "rock in place."  Here is a poser. ' Jl��ck in place" essential to  a petroleum claim. He passes over this difficulty and makes preparations to fix his location line, which ho finds must be "as near as  possible on the line of the ledge or vein." After spending a feiv weeks trying to find hia petroleum "ledge or vein,*' so that he may comply with the act, he mu.^t either abandon hia  discovery or locate tho ground in total disregard of the."Mineral Aat," with the certainty  of having to fight in thu courts, and argue that  the "Petroleum Claim Act, 1903," does not  and cannot mean in the least what it says.  We all know Mr. Hon.-ton as a politician, but  Mr. Houston as a legislator is still an unfath-  pmablo mystery. Seriously, how can our  member excuso such senseless bosh as this.  His supporters any that with all his faults he  is aelevor man. If so, thero is absolutely no  excuso for him.  In  ropponding   to   the toast of "Our Old  Homo in Toronto and Our Now Homo in Vancouver" at a banquet  given   by  tho Toronto  Old IJoyB1 AuHnciutlon at Vancouver tho othor  evening, Chief Jusllci Hunter mado a few remarks that aro entitled to moro than  passing  consideration :   Tho Chief Justice on  rising,  said that jmlgoH wero supposed  to do   thoir  talking in small   courtrooms,  but admittod  that such talking was generally to somo effoot.  Ho said ho was proud to ho a former citizen of  Toronto, and also   th night   that  Canadians  tthould he proud to bo iho  bono  and sinew of  tho groutost ICmpiro tint tho world  had ovor  Boon or over would soo.    Britons  bad  somo  characteristics which  difforontiato thorn from  all other nutionulititH.    Ono  of thoso foaturos  was thoir regard for laiv nnd justice.    Another  was their regard for constitutional rights and  tho govommont in power, Thoro was no lynch  law, and iiiHtoad of  settling   thoir  differences  with revolver and   bowioknifo  thoy woro settled in a court of justice.    Touching tho question of tho loyalty of (J mutilans and  tho pon-  eibUity of unnoxutbn   t)   tho   United States  IIlu Lordship thought lh it ho long as the contra of powor lay east of Winnipeg thoro would  bo no tendency to absorption   by  tlio United  States. What might occur in tho future, whon  from tho constant inllux of American  Hottloru  to tho Northwest, tho ooif.ro  of  powor  might  bo oh if tod westward, would   bo an interesting  problem.

The whole side of a mountain, 4,400  feet high, fell cut and covered with  rocks of all dimensioas a tract at least a mile  and a half in length. Within this tract were  many houses, the occupants of which were in  almost the twinkling of an eye crushed to  death. The disaster occurred at 4:10 in the  morning, therefore the sleeping victims never  realized what happened them. Many theories  are advanced as to the cause of the disaster,  but while the scientists are discussing these,  the more practical people are devising means  providing immediate help. The amount of  assistance required cannot be approximated,  but no doubt it will be great, and it is equally  certain that it will be forthcoming. In the  meantime, the sympathy of Canada will be  with the citizens of Frank in their hour of distress.  At last the Tourist Association is beginning  to show signs of life. Last year was wasted  without anything being done, but already this  year the secretary of the association, Mr. E.  K. BeeBton, has prepared a pamphlet, containing a vast amount of interesting information  for tourists. The pamphlet was printed at  the office of the Daily News, and is in itself  an advertisement for the city, showing that in  Nelson there are printing-offices capable of  turning out work equal to that done in any  city in Canada. It is to be hoped that there  will be no delay in distributing these pamphlets where they will do most good. A thousand or so distributed around the California  tourist resorts���such as Catalina, Hotel del  Coronado, Santa Monica, Passadena, etc.,���  might have beneficial results.  It is hinted that Dr. Hall may refuse to accept the Liberal nomination. No one appears  to be anxious to run against Robert S. Lennie,  the Conservative standard-bearer.  In looking around for a leader for the Liberal party Bome one has suggested the name  of F. J. Deane, of the Da ly News. Certainly  Mr. Deane is entitled to some consideration at  the hands of the Liberals, and perhaps he  would make a capable leader, too. ,  Chauncey Olcott tells this amusing story :  In New Jersey there lives a rustic maiden of  nineteen, who until a year ago had never seen  a theatrical performance. Hor parents had  taught hor that a theatre is synonymous with  Hadep. With the contrariness inherent in  human nature when forbidden fruit bocomeR  attainable, she nccepted, on hor first visit Jto  Now York, the invitation of a masculine cousin to attend a "show." He called it a "show"  so as not to scare her for he wanted hor to go.  He bought tickets for a play in which a ballet  ended the second act. MisH Jorsoy was enthusiastic ovor tho performance until the ballet  girls came tripping on tho stugo. Thon her  expression changed.to one of horror. Tho color  of hor face rivalled that of the woman dancing  beforo hor. Sho boggod hor cousin to tako hor  ont, flaying sho could not stay and soo those  oreatures dance in bnro logp. But ho told hor  thoy would not bo allowed to go out. It would  disturb tho audionco. So sho covered hor eyes  with her programme and in groat distress  awaited tho end. At last tho curtain wont  down. Mon all ovor rose from their souls and  hurried down tho aisles. Rising and pulling  hor cousin with hor, Miss Jorsoy mado for  tho door, oxolaimlng, "Como, Joo, lot's go.  You soo thoro's lots of mon don't liko it  olthor."  Tho ono discouraging feature of Mr. Harold  Nolson's engagement horo was his throat to  return to this city and produoo "Muoh Ado  About Nothing" with a Boutrico Holooted from  tho looal amateurs. Wo sincoroly trust Mr.  Nelson will sparo ub thiB calamity. This  Htago-struok nuisance has boon pormittod to  dovolop to an alarming exlont in Nolson, and  should bo abated, evon if tho courts must bo  resorted to for a 'restraining ordor. Perhaps  tho mnlo amateurs aro tho  greatest offenders.  Up to tho hour of writing, tho political pil-  uution at Victoria remains practically unchanged. Tho opinion isgonorally expressed  that Col.

Taking  it all  in   all,   the outlook    of   the  Boundary   district,   judged   according  to  the  mines that are preparing to  pay profits,   will  by the end oi this year be exceedingly bright.  Inland Sentinel.  Chief Commissioner Wells is not showing to  any advantage in the enquiry into the C. ifc  W. land grant. He is in a misty predicament,  and he knows it, and so does the Attorney-  General.  Victoria Colonist.  The government proposes to put a duty of  $7 a ton on steel rails a3 soon as Canadian  mills can supply tbe market with a iirst-class  article. We have always thought protection  was for the purpose of stimulating manufactures, not rewarding them.  Moyie Leader,  It is" said that there is a young ..lady in  Cranbrook who is so modest she would not retire so long as there was a copy of the Christian Observer in the room. We wonder if she  would'object to a Morrissey Miner, a Frank  Sentinel, or a Fort Steele Prospector.  Ymir Mirror.  Unfortunately British Columbia does not  receive that consideration to which she is entitled at the hands of the Dominion Government. It takes years to accomplish anything  for this province at Ottawa, so that the only  thing to do in this instance as in the past is to  keep on hammering, hammering, hammering.  Trail Creek I\Te\v.s.  Eastern Canadian manufacturers are too  short-sighted to understand that the fostering,  of our resources means the. opening uf a larger  market for the consumption of their goods.  Perhaps when a new government is to be  elected, British Columbia will receive more  consideration from the powers that be at Ottawa.  Kootenay Mail.  The lead mining industry is as important to  British Columbia as the steel industry is to  Eastern Canada, Yet the Dominion Government proposes to aid the steel industry by a  protective tariff but leaves the lead industry  practically unaided. This, is grossly unfair  to the west and it is to be hoped government  will re-open the matter and take steps to remedy the wrong.  Fort Steele Prospector.  Every mining camp in tho Foi t Steele district should begin making arrangements for n  grand mineral display at the World's Fair at  St. Louis. This will be the greatest of all  similar gatherings and will bo visited by millions of the representative pooplo of the entire  world. A fine mineral display from this district will bo worth much to Iho mining industry and will result in attracting a largo  amount of capital to Southeast Kootenay.  Vernon Nows.

It is  a family which is reasonably fond of  the  good tlut'-s of  life���that is "to say, rdl ita  members know when things are well cooked and the best of  their kind, and that is  what  they have upon  their table, and  in  reasonable variety and in reasonable quan-  j  tity, as a family of  good taste will.

Then it is that the visitor  | chances to hear the hostess pronounce in  eof t tones those mysterious letters, "F. H.  B."  '���Xow, won't you tell mo what you  jlicant by those few letters you pronounced  at dinner?" asked a privileged visitor the  other day of tlio jolly mamma of the faintly.  "Woll," Jiuswered mamma, with a  smile, "I don't know that I mind telling  you.

Tho law extending suffrage to them went  into effect in ISi/.S. Tho population of  Christehurch (census of 1891) was 31,454.  The first election under tho" new law was  held in November, ]S!)3. Number of jnen  who voted, 0,ol3; number of women who  voted, 5,089. These fi;:urcs ought to prove  that women aro not as indifforent about  polities as pojuo people believe. In New  Zeahuid, as a whole, the estimated adult  female .population was 139,915; of these  109,1(!1 qualified and registered their  names on tho rolls���78.23 per cent of the  whole. Of these 90,290 went to tho polls  and voted. Do men ever turn out bettor  than that in America or elsewhere? Hero  is a remark to the other sex's credit, taken  from the ollickil report:  "A feature of tho election was tho orderliness aud sobriety of the people. Woman woro in no way molested."  In tho New Zealand law occurs this:  "Tho word person wherever it occurs  throughout this act includes woman." By  that enlargement of the word tho matron  with the g.'irnered wisdom and experience  of CO years becomes at once tho political  eq.ua! of her son of 21.  Stroa_r Words About Women.  If tliero wero no women compelled by  circumstances to take caro of themselves,.  tho march of tho "woman's movement"  would cease. For, in spito of her modern  rattlo'of independence and her assertion  that she is as big as a man any day, woman by naturo loves best a cozy corner and  the course of life that helps to malco and  keep it cozy, und bhirao her as men may  do it is net her fault that sho does not  phm to perpetually on joy and gracp that  corner.  Ib is rhetorically and poetically all very  well to entreat woman to adorn the hearthstone and cling to home, but as practical  advice most of such entreaty is absolutely  nothing, for such is tho stress of circumstances that woman often cannot Jidorn  tho hoarthstono und cling to homo at the  samo timo. In short, if sho would adorn  the hearthstone sho must frequently do it  by such outsido work as will aid in keep-  in;c a hearthstone at all and insuring tho  necessary hearthstone accompaniments.  Thoro aro only two classes of reputable  women who forsako tho shelter of the-  homo. They are tho class forced into tho  open by necessity and thoso enticed thoro  by personal ambition. Onoof thoso classes  cannot heed exhortations 'to bit .soleiy do  niestio; tho other will not.  It is (i question whether tho porsonnlly  ambitious woman is not boyopd the help  of earth or heaven. If sho is not poshij?  In tho forefront of boiuo movement in  the interest of Into fads, Bho is turning  her world unsldo down with private  BchemoH tending to hor personal advanco  inont. Sho is joined to her idols, and bO'  cnuso of her tho bewildered &iu��hl'ei'H of  mankind tiro often led to bow at shrines  of her erection.

These  tf-e esplanades along which fashion distorts itself in remarkable raiment and  notably on Easter Sunday. They ar��  pbiced in New York, Washington and Q|hi-  cago and aro named Fifth avenue, ConJ-  ncctlcut avenue and Lake Shore drive. Of  tho three the last 'la Incoinpafcibly th*  handsomest. On one Bide curl the bin*  v/aters of the lake; on the other ia the  bosky wealth of Lincoln park, pale green  In the early spring. On Lake Shore drive  the air is sharper and better. Sweeping  over tho miles of Lake Michigan it bring*  b deeper color to thin skinned checks. It  adds quickness to gesture and silver to  laughter. It is good for women's lungs.  It is good for the lungs of men who line  tho edges of the broad, pathway. . It helps  to disarm criticism. In looking at and  judging a pretty woman the best thing to  have is good humor.  The women who frequent these display  grounds are markedly different in type.  The New York woman will be recognized  as a Now York woman on State street. A  Chicago woman is unable to hide her birthmarks upon Broadway. A Washington  woman ought to be known anywhare. In  painting their several portraits it is necessary to use only a coarse brush. They lend  themselves readily to delineation. Each  of the three cities furnishes individual  types of extreme beauty. Preference is  largely a matter of taste, which itself is a  matter of education and early surroundings.  The New York woman la well built and  carries herself well. She is apt to be long  legged and has a long stride. She is taught  to hold her shoulders back and ker chin  high. She looks straight ahead, and a gaze  that apparently takes in nothing takes in  everything. This has been bred in her by  lifo in a crowded town���a town to whose  crowd Chicago's crowds aro mere hand-  fuls. Sho is graceful, with a cultivated  graoe that smacks of Delsarte. Her hands  are large and well formed, as aro her fcot.  The latter aro large because sho does much  walking. She i3 apt to be narrow hipped  and flat chested. She is btg boned, and,  if spare of flesh, tho bones are prominent  Her lower limbs are thin, but tho bicycle  has dono much for thorn. For three generations and more her waist has been too  much pinched. She is apt to be blond or  an approach to blond.  One of tho rarest things in.New York is  a genuine, native born brunette. By genuine brunctto I mean the clear olivo skin  whioh shows the dusky red of tho cheeks,  tho long lashed, dark eyes of shine and  the masses of raven hair. That is the  healthy brunette���surely ono of the most  beautiful of women. Tho Now York woman has a gqod complexion and, almost  Without exception, sound and brilliantly  white teeth. Her mouth is largo, and good  teeth aro a necessity. Her eyebrows are  thin, but distinctly penciled, and her nose  ��� tends to tho aquilino type. As a general  thing tho lips aro thin and tho ears small.  Sho is not a woman in whom the animal  masters tho mental. Her manners, when  alio wishes them to bo, aro perfection���refined, gentlo, cordial, frank and modest.  Tho fomalo aristocrat of Now York���and  only aristocrats froquont Fifth avonuo at  Eastor���is high bred. Her behavior with  tho othor sox shows it Thoro is nothing  of tho don't touoh mo reserve of tho awkwardly bashful woman and no invitation  to unduo freedom. She is of1 tho world,  liking malo companionship and unoon  sciously enforcing malo respect.  The woman of Chicago is western. Sh��  could not hido it if sho wished to. Sho i��  stronger than hor Now York sister���bcttci  built. Sho has moro muscle. Sho is not  so tall, but is broader. Her forehead 15  not so high, but sho measures moro between tho eyoa She ie nob so handsomo _,  woman, but Is moro attractive.    Hor fact  is apt to bo irregular. The now Is nv  quontly retrousse. Tho lips, if not thick,  aro full. As Chicago is a now city, and a  ooniposito city, sho is a now and oomposlto  product. Sho is of all typos���short, long,  blond, brunotto and bruno.  Ono of tho handsomest womon In Chicago is of tho purb Saxon kind���flaxon  locks, creamy skin and light blue oyos.  Another in of Peruvian darknesH. Thero  Is much red hair in Chicago, Sho is an  opon air woman. Sho Is assertive and soil  reliant. She is distinctly of tho kind of  whom you hoar lt said, "Sho Is able to  tako earo of herself." Thoro Is a good deal  of tho "now woman" In tho Chicago woman. Frequently uho i�� in biiHlnoHU, Sho  runs to short skirts and common son bo  shoos. Sho rows, fencos and whuuls.

This being the case, then  STJcrformances of the Harold Kelson  company must have beon of a superior  S, for the houses grew larger as the  engagement drew to a close the, last  night drawing the best of all. A feature of the week was the ��pp����a..�� of  Mi��s-Ivy Johnstone in a part on Monday night. This was the first oPPor-_  tunity Miss Johnstone had of measur  ing herself with professionals and the  general opinion was that she did not  fall far short of the professionals.  One benefit of a visit fromacompany  like the one here last week is the interest it arouses in Shakespearian  plays Many who have not looked into  2 their Shakespeare for years, took down  their old volume of the "Bard of Avon  and brushed up in the pieces presented.  It is safe to say that Kelson never had  so many Sbakesperian scholars as at  present.  The Clara Hanmcr company is  booked to appear at the Opera House  for a week beginning Monday, May 18.  The library ball at the armory build-  in-* last night was a most delightful  event, and reflected tlie highest degree  of credit on the committee in charge.  The decorations were very pretty, and  everything was carried out in a manner  to make the evening as pleasant as  possible.

"Forty to one od Terry 1" was  shouted from six places?. Our fraternity took them all.  The judge then continued: For  the next, that of expression, we  have unanimously awarded 10  points to the Unknown and none  to Mr. Terence.  An ominous silence fell upon the  audience like a pall, and I noticed  the Italian proprietor of the hotel  take away some electro-plated  spoons that were lying on a side  table and then amble gently away  in the direction of the electric light  switch.  The judges smoked their cigars  calmly and unflinchingly.  The chief justice then roee to his  feet for the last time and remarked:  "We have now come to the thirdly  and lastly. With reference to general excellence, we have decided,  and I am sure you will all be  vastly pleased at the wisdom and  justice of our decision, to award  five points each to the competitors.  Aa you will observe each candidate  has ecored 15 points, therefore it is  a  draw game,   All bets aro off."  And then the fun commenced.  The audience woke up to the fact  that it had been fooled. The members howled, they yelled for their  $2, and in tho midst of the confusion out went tho lights. The  judges and our contingent deployed  into line and mado a dnsh for the  side door, but dashing through, a  horny fist enrae ipto contuct with  the chief judge's left eye^ whilo I  stopped a similar wenpon with my  noae.
