At the benefit   dance  given   in   the  Miners'   Union hall   Tuesday   evening   there were   no   less   than   four  violinists.       These   were   not  ordinary   "fiddlers,"   either,    but    any  _��ne of the four would be   capable of w  leading an orchestra.    The   orches- ' afforded  tra was composed of  Chas.

Mrs.  Richards   presided at  the piano.     A   duet   was    rendered  by   Mrs.    R.    Lindsay   and   R.    K.  McCammon,    and    solos    by   Mrs.  Bellis, Fred A.

It 'is  suggested   by  leaders of the  movement  to  raise  the  standard of American  surgery  that a  similar  rule' be .adopted' in  American   hospitals."   It  is  an  old  saying - that   the   mistakes .of the  doctor are'not seen, as they go under ground.    The European idea is  that   the  hospital   autopsy -makes  better doctors.

Shoddy aristocracy and snobbery  are the outgrowth of vain and weak  intellects. -  ��� Rev. M. A. Mathews, pastor of  the largest Presbyterian church , in  the world, the First Presbyterian  church of Seattle; paid a visit to  Vancouver this week and delivered  an address on "A Clean City* for  Clean Citizens," in the 'course of  which he declared that a few years  ago Vancouver was one of the  main centres on the continent for  the white slave traffic.  Dr. Mathews makes   a  specialty  of white slave  sermons.    His  oratory-on that subject  has  made  his  church famous and crowds it to the  doors every  Sunday, enabling  him  to drive about with a liveried  chauffeur and live in somewhat princely  style." It is  difficult  to   believe   in  the absolute sincerity of the  Seattle  spellbinder.     His methods are those  of the  charlatan,   always   with   the  primary object of "getting his  name  into,the newspapers.    He finds that  preaching    on   the  alleged    white  slave traffic is profitable, hence   the  A Christmas Carol  The moon that now is shining  In skies so blue and bright,  Shone ages eince on shepherds  Who watched their flocks by night;  There was no sound upon' the earth, .

About midnight the  whole   town   was   startled   by   the  furious ringing of the   church   bell.  An old colored   man   was  sent   by  the proprietor to see what   was' the  matter.

Vice there  is in plenty, here   and   everywhere,  but white slavery is the   result of a  distorted imagination.     It is  possible that in the cities of Chicago and  New    York   young    women    have  beeu forced to a life  of shame, but  it has been shown that with a   very  few   exceptions   the   women    who  make their living  that   way   do  so  voluntarily.     The  grim   stories  of  women being'held captive are  true  only of the large   cities,    but  that  such conditions were 'true   in   Vancouver  five  years   ago  cannot   be  taken seriously.
