The Big- Store  "Is the Shoe Store"  St. Patrick's Dance  The dance given on Friday, of last  week   by  the   local   lodge   of   the  Fraternal Order of Eagles, eclipsed  all past efforts of that fraternity,, and  [judging hy   results,   the effort's'expended to   make   the ball  a success  were amply rewarded.    The decorative scheme was both novel and attractive and added   a charm to the  ballroom    never    achieved    before.  Festoons    of small    electric   lights  were hung across the room and the  noble bird   was   in   evidence  on all  sides.     Hanging on   the walls  and  illuminated   were   tbe mottoes   emblematic   of  the   principles   of   the  | order:   truth,   justice,   equality and  liberty,   while    tastefully  arranged,  were the   flags   of  Britain, Canada[  and   the   United   States.      Cooling  drinks were   to be   had for the asking.    The floor  was  in fine shape,  and with   the   splendid  music supplied by Werner's orchestra, proved  a   magnetic combination difficult to  resist.     During  an   interval in  the  danre,   Mr.   Patrick   Love   arrived,  wearing the " bat his  father wore,"  "the   relics of  ould   dacency," and  distributed souvenirs to each guest,  consisting  of an   Irish   linen  handkerchief accompanied by   a bottle of  perfume.  perty is operated   by   Davidson   of bia ����ve kept that province British  C.���i _ :_  . i!,. .��� ...

A, raise is  being run  from the  lower  levels to  the surface where bins and hoisting  plant   will   be   installed.    The  ore  will   then  be   trammed   straight   to]  the top ofthe mill instead  of-being  raised by the  elevator belt as heretofore.      A      twelve-disked     compressor is also being, installed which  will enable the. company to increase  their tonnage very considerably and  keep the mill going at  full capacity.  The Sullivan   mine in   Fast Kootenay  is   now   the   heaviest   shipper  in  that district,   the Canadian Consolidated,   who   own   the   property,  having  shipped   over 4000   tons  to  the Trail smelter this year.  A contract has been let for 200  feet of work on the shaft of the  Bluebird mine, in  the south  belt of  in traditions and spirit, and were  intensely Canadian, having the  same aims and interests as the rest  of the Dominion.

"' }n     A voice: "Hot air."    "Yes, sir,"  t^^aid the premier, "Socialism is hot  air, and that is why instead of advancing it has been receding,' so  that after March 28th there will not  be a single socialist left in the legislature. The people were getting  tired of listening to the same old  story, and putting up monthly dues  to support a lot of itinerants filled  with Karl Marx."  A Socialist said he thought it  hardly fair ofthe premier to talk in  that way after refusing his platform  to the Socialists.  "If my friend does not "wish to  hear my observations," said the premier, "there is no obligation on him  to stay. I have not come here to  plead the Socialistic cause but have  come rather to show those who still  cling to it, how unwise it is to follow  these fanciful doctrines when there  is so much work to be done." He  added that Socialists tried to spread  their propoganda by holding forth  night after night on every occasion.  That was why there were Socialists  running in ridings where there were  no Liberals, but there was as much  chance of establishing a Socialist  government as of building a railway  i     )i pti*  REMOVAL SALE  ^4  J     Entire Stock of Furniture, Carpets  i  A  iv,  Xi  Rugs and Linoleums  to be cleared at  Greatly Reduced Prices  A ilne line of Bedsteads, Mattresses unci Springs, at prices never  before offered in Phoenix.

"They have been  attending to business while the Socialists do a heap of talking. So  much for my Socialist friends. No  doubt next week this hall will be  crowded nightly to hear the promulgation of their, woes."  The premier then dealt with the  fortnightly wage bill which the government did not consider practicable.  Mr. Heatherington, from the gallery, said: "The 13. C. Federation  of Labor representing 10,000 men  had asked for it."  The premier repeated that the  government must consider how it  would apply to the whole province.  It was not practicable in out of the  way places, but would be investigated by the labor commission.  Another man asked why the government did not pay the men who  had worked on the plans of Midway  and Vernon railway now taken over  by the Kettle Valley company.  .The premier replied that the government did not look after every  little case, but as far as possible  would try to pay oil" all debts on the  old road.  In answer to questions by another  man the premier said he believed  foreign dependents of a man killed  in an accident should be provided for  under the Workmen's Compensation  Act. So far he had not found it  possible to devise a law to insure  wages of men employed by exploiters of wild cat schemes.  A note was handed up signed by  several women asking if the premier  favored votes for women. The premier replied that it was not a matter  the government was prepared to  deal with yet.

KNIOHT.  WILL INVESTIGATE  MERRITT DISASTER  Provincial Mineralogist Ordered  To Make Examination.  In an effort to discover the causes  which led up to the recent explosion  at the Diamond Vale Collieries, at  Merritt, the provincial mineralogist,  XV. Fleet Robertson, has been instructed by the Premier, Hon. Richard McBride, who also holds the  portfolio of Minister of Mines, to  proceed lo that place and make a  thorough examination of the mine  workings. Several conjectures as  to the cause have been made, but  until Mr. Robertson makes his investigation it will be impossible to  hazard an opinion.  Methodist Church Concert  The entertainment' in aid of the  funds of the Methodist church, the  program of which we published in  our issue of two weeks ago, took  place on Friday of last week, a  crowded audience being present,  whose frequent applause throughout  testified in no uncertain way to the  excellency ofthe performances. The  program was an unusually long one,  but was perfectly managed, while  the sketches "The Ladies'Aid of  Bingville" and the "Camp Fire  Scene" were well staged and drew  the merited applause of the house.  The rest of the numbers, consisting  of songs, recitations and instrumental selections were all well received  and deservedly praised by everyone.  A gratifying result of the conceit  is that the funds of the church have  been augmented to the extent of  over $100, a fact which bears eloquent testimony to the open-hearted  liberality ofthe people of Phoenix.  Mount Stephen, and 1000 feet vertically above the C.P.R. track, is  again on the shipping list. The  vein was opened up during the  construction work on the railroad.  It is a vertical fissure in limestone.  The ore is very irregular, being  from a few inches to fifteen feet  across, with large pockets ot galena  in places, carrying 0.04 ounces in  gold. G.O ounces in silver, 50 per  cent, lead and IS per cent. zinc.  The zinc blende being closely associated with the galena, the company  has found it necessary to install a  sixty ton concentrator. This is connected with the mine by an aerial  tramway. A new one hundred  horsepower boiler and engine supplies power and heat in the winter  months, and water is plentiful  enough in the summer to take the  place of steam. New hunk houses,  shops, electric light plant, etc.,  have been installed.

The British Coal Crisis  The forces of capitalism  and of  labor in" Britain are again   arrayed  against one another and. the whole  nation has about quit work.  Already  the most flourishing industries in the  realm are the soup kitchens.    The  mercantile marine, both around the  British   coast  and in. the   Mediterranean is almost paralysed   for the  want of coal, while the factories are  rapidly     closing     throughout    the  length and breadth of the land. The  coal  mineowners claim   that, an in  crease in the men's pay is impossi  ble, while the representatives of the  unions  stoutly    maintain   the contrary.     Conferences are constantly  being held by the parties concerned,  and  no (ess   a personage   than  the  Imperial Prime minister has taken a  seat in the councils.

Now, a-..statement. ;of this kind  might have some effect in this country. It is open to doubt, however,  but over there the only effect resulting 'was to open the'eyes of the  government to the arrogant character of the wealthy mine owners and  force the government to frame a  measure fixing by Act of Parliament a minimum wage for the coal  miner. Why this action on the part  of the Imperial government should  have been necessary it is difficult to  understand, in view of the fact that  there is a power vested in the King  age:�� ������ agb; } which 4 empowers  Crown^"/to ~,cqnfiscate,  of state demand   it.   anv  r  fry yot*, TH"*"  Overheard in a Street-Car.

In   this connection  it   may    not   be   amiss   to   quote  the warning  sounded  years ago al  Oxford by tlint brilliant statesman,  Lord Beaconsfield, when he  viewed  with prophetic  eye, the  rapidly rising tide of British democracy.     " It  is  now   but   a, moaning   wind," he  said,   " but   it will   soon become   ir  howling  tempest."       These Words  were   uttered   probably  forty years  ago   and* he  who   uttered   them   is  sleeping  his   long   sleep   amid    the  primroses  of tranquil    Hughenden,  yet  it   is   doubtful   if even he,   the  'keenest statesman that Britain ever  possessed, had any conception ofthe  rapid rise of the socialistic tide.   The  waters  have certainly  risen with  a  vengeance and even threaten to engulf her;   but they   will   not.

In the Name of the Little Father  ��� :'-,One -of ; the   most   picturesque  figures among- the  women  revolutionists of Russia is Vera���Figner,  whose father was one of the distinguished  generals   of   the   Russian  army.     Betrayed by a  traitor, she  was condemned to twenty years im  prisonment in the dreaded Schlilssel  burg fortress  for alleged  participa-  tibnin the   attempts on   the  life of  the late czar.     Those imprisoned in  this fortress are  considered buried  alive, no intercourse or communica  tion  with    the  outer  world    being  allowed,   not   even with  their owji  nearest relatives.      But Vera Figner  survived    the    horrors    of   twenty  years   confinement  and exile  in Si  beria,  and  is still working for  the  enlightenment of ignorant Russians.  A name  revered  by all .Russians  is   that  of  Madame   Sigida,    who  aroused  to a frenzy of indignation  through   seeing  an    invalid   female  convict   in   the   Siberian   colony of  Kara, to which they had both been  exiled,   flogged  by   a  warder,   was  herself flogged to death because she  struck him.     In the prison records  it  is written     " Mme   Sigida  committed suicide by poisoning herself,"  but the truth, like murder will  out,  and the   crime  of the  warders   has  been fully proved.

"1 agree with him" Burt swung  over the burner ol the window ledge  Ihut separated.them. "I don't believe  you'll ever love any one as you did me.  Kitty, will yon?"

There were indications that  the deer had been killed for the purpose of  getting   the   unborn fawns,  which  are  considered  a great delicacy among   the   Indians   and  are  also sold to the Chinese who pickle  them   in alcohol; the fluid is drunk  by the celestials and  is supposed to  have some great virtue.  i&i  laanrHMa  Dan Buchanan left last week for  ranch up the river.
