His Attempt  to  Give   Boundary  Creek
District a Railway Which Will Not
Cost the Country a Dollar.
Victoria,   March   23.—[Special   to  The
Tribune].- The British ColumbiaBoard of
trade yesterday asserted its independence
of  the Canadian  Pacific Railway Company, and refused to be a  party to the
railway company's schema for placing the
Boundary Creek district under its absolute  control.   Wheu   it  is   remembered
that the members of the board voted  four
to one in  favor of rescinding its former
resolution, protesting against the granting of a railway charter to D.  G. Corbin,
it is easy to see that the revolt against
the Canadian Pacific company's monopoly
is widespread.
A desperate effort was made, however,
by the friends of the   Canadian _.P_.cifie
Railway Company to prevent this^action
on the part of the board, and it required
a  two days' session to put  the matter
through   in  a  shap^e   favorable   to   the
champious  of  railway competition.    A
special meeting of the  board  was called
for Tuesday to discuss the matter of (he
Corbin application for a charter to  build
the  Kettle River Valley railway.    The
meeting opened tit 10 o'clock in theinorn-
ing, and the question ivas debated all-day
by representative business,  professional
aud railway men of the city.   A decision
was not reached on Tuesday, aud au adjournment   was   taken till   Wednesday,
when the supporters of the Corbin application carried the day.
E. V. Bod well, as the champion of the
..Corbin charter made a masterful statement of the case,   urging the- board to
rescind its former resolution and place itself on record as in favor of the granting
of the charter to Corbin.   Editor Lugrin
of the Colonist held the brief for the Canadian  Pacific railway, and supported an
amendment opposiug the rescinding the
previous resolution of the board.   Among
those who made good speeches in favor of
the Corbin charter were T. W. Paterson,
the   defeated   government  candidate in
the Victoria by-election, Lindley Crease,
and J. J.  Shalleross.   Joshua Davies arid
D. R. Ker, of Brackman & Ker, were the
principal speakers for the Canadian Pacific Railway Company.
When the debate finally closed the
motion rescinding the previous resolution
of the board was carried on a division of
fifty: to thirteen, the amendment being
defeated upon practically the same vote;
A resolution endorsing the Corbin charter was then carried upon the samedivis-
v- .jio'ri as thatlof the firs^motion.V Tlie; vie-■'

off from the outer world. Fortunately
the big water pipe was not broken, and
by blowing a hole in it with dynamite
the men were able to communicate with
their friends, who kept them supplied
with food, while a new shaft over 200 feet
deep was sunk. The cost of rescuing the
men was over $3000.

Using Brass-Tipped Bullets.
Washington, March 23.—Reports received by the war department from medical officers serving with the troops in the
Philippines show that Aguinaldo's army
are0using brass-tipped bullets. Several
American soldiers have been wounded by
these poisonous projectiles, and in consequence the wouuds are more difficult to
heal than those caused by the ordinary
bullet. The authorities can do nothing to
prevent the insurgents using any kind of
bullets whieh they see fit, as they have no
government to which an appeal can be
made. This is given as another indication
of the utter unfitness of the Filipinos for
self-government.       .

Last year when D. C. Corbin was endeavoring to secure from the parliament of Canada a charter for the Kettle River Valley Railway Company, the
o "■'■-.-.•.        .  * '   ■ ■■■.-.-
city council of Nelson p used a resolution asking that the charter be grauted.
Later, like resolutions were passed by the South Kootenay Board of Trade,
which has its domicile at Nelson. Afterwards; the Canadian Pacific officials
at Nelson made an effort to win the board of trade to their side, but when a
special meeting of the board was held to reconsider the resolutions, the C. P.
R. crowd could only muster 12 votes to 40-odd. This indicates how public
sentiment was at Nelson a year ago. .The Tribune then voiced public sentiment, and The Miner stood-in with the Canadian Pacific. The Tribune has
not changed, neither has The Miner. Today public sentiment in Nelson is
just as strong in favor of Bouudary Greek getting competitive railway facilities as it was a year ago, but the city council is "bossed" by a C. P.'R. official
who happened to be elected an alderman last January, and the board of trade
is being "run" by the traffic officials of the same road.

capacity and unable to keep up with
orders. Mr. Bvers visited Montreal,
Toronto, Bottom Buffalo and other wholesale centres. While in the East, af Montreal, especially, he was besieged with inquiries regarding mining properties in the lioot-
enay, some of which he had never even
heard of. Nelson has a high standing
among the leading wholesale houses in the
East and is every where looked on as the
commercial town of theKootenays. While
in Mohtreal he saw Jacob Dover, and
danced at his wedding. He says that the
last he saw of "Jakie" was at tbe Windsor
depot, as the bridal party was leaving for
New York amid a shower of rice. Mr.
Dover was standing on the rear end of
Pullman shaking the rice out of his hair.
While everything was nice in the East,
Mr. Byers found the country too highly
civilized for him after his long residence
in the West.    •>

circumstances. He went to the bush to
take out some Wood. The horses returning without him, the family was alarmed,
and noticing blood on the harness, immediately went in search. He was shortly
afterwards found lying dead with a huge
g£tsh in his foot from the axe with which
he was working. His death is supposed
to have resulted from the shock and loss
of blood.        '

So far as the proposition for general disarmament of all the nations of the world
is concerned, it will be the duty ofthe
American delegates to explain and show
that the United States, both from a mili-
tar^ncfea naval standpoint, is far below
the armlamenit it should have; and, besides, it was explained to me that this
movemeut does not intend to hamper in
any way the iuventive faculty of the
people of thi-i country, nor is it expected
that Great Britain will dp sp. In fact the
most important result which the officials
expect of the conference"will be the adoption of some plan to refer disputes to
general arbitration, but the United States
will have a plan of this character as well
as other nations.
The administration is strongly in favor
of arbitration as the means for the settlement of disputes between nations, and
while it appreciates that there are a number of controyei'&ies that can only be
settled by wai*, still it is believed that
many questions which : arise and
are causes of much friction can be
arbitrated. President McKinley is committed to international arbitration by his
inaugural address and subsequent declarations, but his administration has not attempted to negotiate arbitration treaties
because of the imminence of war with
Spain and the occurrence of war. In view
of the assembling of the conference at
The Hague, it is thought by officials that
the time has come when the administration can put itself on record before the
world as favoring arbitration.
Want to Discuss, the Question.
The mayor of Kaslo has been requested
to call a public meeting to discuss the
eight-hour amendment to the Metalliferous Mines Inspection Act, and has, it is
said, consented. It is difficult to see what
good such a discussion caD accomplish,
save the airing of private opinions and
the arousing of hostilities that might
otherwise be dormant.
Should   They  Oppose   the*   Efforts   of the
People of Boundary Creek to Secure the V
Advantages of Railway Competition.
The  action  of the  Nelson  Miner,   in
championing the cause of the Canadian
Pacific Railway Company in its attempt
to prevent the people of Boundary Creek
from securing any railway facilities save-
such as  the Canadian  Pacific  Rail way
Company is prepared-to-give them, is apt
to do much harm, to * the business which
the wholesale merchants of  Nelson are
endeavoring to build up 'with the mer-";

the attentioti" of the" local merchants to

city, whose -principals had opposed the
Corbin Charter, and"called upati the local
merchants iii self-defence to refuse tb do
any business with those who opposed the
efforts^of the people pf Boundary Creek
to secure the benefits of railway competition. The local paper is dependent
upon local iherchadt-i for its patronage.
Its stand may therefore be taken as a fair
index of the feeling of the merchants who
support it.
If 4|ie merchants of Boundary Creek desireJ railway competition, as most sane
merchants would, is it natural that they
will trade with other merchants who do
wlia't they can to oppose them in their
efforts to secure sbch competition? Those
who were in Nelson when the Nelson <fe
Fort Sheppard railway was first projected will remember that in coil-
sequence of the dppositiou of the Vancouver Board of JTrade; there was virtually
a^ boycott declared by the Nelson merchants against the wholesale houses of
Vancouver. This feeling of hostility
existed long after the Nelson & Fort Sheppard was completed and running into
Nelson. Do the merchants of Nelson de-
sire^ to be placed in the same position
with respect to the merchants of Boundary Creek as the merchants of Vancouver occupied with respect to Nelson a few
years ago ?
That is what will happen if they take
up the fight of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company agaiust railway competition in Boundary Creek, and whether a
newspaper is an organ of a railway company or not, its utterances are in a measure accepted as a reflex of public opinion.

Favor the K. R. V. R. Charter!
Victoria, March 23.—Last year when D.
C. Corbin was asking for permissioh to
build a railroad from Northport into the
Boundary Creek country, the boards of
trade in Victoria and Vancouver passed
resolutions opposing the granting of his
request. Yesterday the Victoria board
of trade rescinded its former resolutions
and passed resolutions strongly favoring
the granting of a Dominion charter to the
Kettle River Valley Railway Company.
The city council yesterday completed
the work of considering the revised bylaws of the corporation, and a resnluti' n
was passed authorizing the city clerk to
forward the bylaws to Tupper, Peters &,
Gilmour of Vancouver, for final revision
and engrossment preparatory to the final
passage by the city council.
As intimated in TiibTuh_uni_ last evening, some further changes were made in
the fire limits" bylaw, the council virtually
going back to the fire limit area as set '
out by the former couucil.   At a former
meeting of the council ic was decided to
extend the limits on Baker street east and
west, and to exclude from the fire" limits
the   lots   in    several    of    the     blocks
fronting     on     Victoria     and     Vernon
streets.       This      made     an     alleyway
the dividing line, instead of the street, as
the bylaw formerly stood.     There was
also a kick from the owners of property
in block 86 against the inclusion of the
lots fronting on Baker street in the fire
limits and the exclusion of the lots fronting on Vernon street, and the result was
that the council decided to restore the old
fire limits as far as the West ward of the
city is concerned.'   With respect to the
East ward a departure was made from the
fire limit area idea by including the Baker
street lots in "blocks No. 3 and 7.   This
however was done a view to checking the
growth of the tenderloin district and no
objection was made to it.    The fire limits
are therefore bounded on the  north by
Vernon street and the alleyway in block
No. 3, on the west by Kootenay street,
on the south by Victoria street and the
alleyway in  block No.   7,   and   on   the
east by Hendryx street.   The inclusion of   *
the west Baker street frontages was alder-'
man Fletcher's idea, but in view of the
protests of the owners and the unsatisfactory boundaries established the council

A. J.  Hipper son  appeared before the
council as the delegate of the plumbers of
the city and urged some amendments to
the waterworks bylaw and the plumbing
bylaw."   He asked that the plumbing in
houses in connection with the waterworks
be put upon the same basis as the plumbing for sanitary purposes.   Also that a
practical plumber be appointed   to   the
board of plumbing examiners.   The dele- -
gate was informed that the amendments
to the bylaws  which he requested had"
been already made.   With respect to*the*
request to appoint a  practical plumber -
upon the examiner's board the council decided to comply with the same, and on
motion of alderman Thomson, E. R.  Wi-
nans, the foreman plumber for the Lawrence Hardware Company, was appointed '
;a member of the board. .■
The council then took up the charges in
the water works  bylaw and made some   ■
sweeping   redactions    iu   the   ratesV to"".
consumers of city .water.   For dwelling
houses the rate for three-room houses was
reduced from $1.50 to $1 per month ; four
to five-room houses from $1.75 to $1.25 per   •
month; for six or more rooms the rate-
was fixed at $1.50.   For hotels and boarding houses the rate per room was reduced
from 25 cents to 15 cents per room.   The
rate for baths iu  private houses was reduced from 50 cents to 25. bents, and the
water closet rate for private houses was
also reduced-from 50 cents to 25 cents.

San Francisco, March 23.—A letter from

regulars, now at Manilla, tells bf the release of A. S. Peters,' photographer, who
was captured aud tortured by the Filipinos. Peters was made prisoner while
taking pictures outside the lines. He was
thrust into a filthy jail, where he was
visited by a captain, who tested his sword
on his body aud-threaterfed-to-kill~lii___T~
lie then called in a number of naked
savages, all armed, who executed a war

them wounded him in the arm. The next
morning he was taken to Malolos, where
he found eight Americans, two Euglish-

SEVENTH Yj-AI^ N6j 18  [Nelson Minor, 21st.]  It is perfectly clear from  the letter of the secretary,  that the Moyie Board of.  Trado has put the Canadian  Pacific company in the  wrong. And it is a kind of  wrong which .a big corporation, generously boniiscd  by the country, cannot  atford to commit. The  company is guilty of un unworthy pettiness jn -its  treatment of Moyie. All  British Columbia knows  Moyie; no one has the least  knowledge of Moyelle; yet,  on the company's maps and  time tables it is Moyelle, nob  Moyie., The only reason  ��tlier6 can be is that the  " com party is endeavoring to  destroy Mbyic in order tliat.  itiiiiiy buildup a town of  its own iit Moyelle. ; That is  the situation as presented  by the Moyie Board of  Trade; and it is anything  but a creditable one. If the  company has anything to  offer in explanation or in  excuse, thd public, we tire  sure*, will agrc" ill saying  that it is high time it was  forthcoming.  [Nelson Miner, 23rd.]  A feeling of uneasiness  has prevailed, for several  weeks past, among citizens  not coiiv'erSaiit with the  facts, On account Of reports  that the Canadian Pacific  company was, discrimifiat-  itig .(gainst the Hall Mines"  smelter. These roiSorts  ; have been industriously  circulated, find cdlor wiis  given them, by the faotthafc  llip CanAdian Pacific itsejf  is engaged in the smelting  business audi Wits, therefore,  a rivnh If true it meant  that the great rail waj* corporation WiMdcterminCd to  drive tlie Nelson smelter  out di the field. That  would be a Serious lb -*s to  the city, as the smelter is  by many degrees thclargest  and most important industry we possess! If there  wero less disposition to regard the Canadian Pacific  as an ogre, and more to bear  in mind that it is a business  enterprise, conducted On  business principles, there  would bo less readiness to  believe that it would deliberately proceed to cripple  its own sources of traffic.  business.; Does it give rival express companies the same facilities as it gives its  own offspring? The Canadian Pacific is  also in the telegraph business and the  hotel business, yet no one has ever been  so "soft" as to imagine that the railway  company gave rival telegraphs and hotels  equal facilities with its own appendages.  Just at this time, the Canadian Pacific  wants to appear in a good light with the  people. Were it proved that it is guilty  of unworthy pettiness in its treatment of  industrial enterprises in Kootenay, particularly, its,managers might have great  difficulty-in convincing parliament that  it should have a monopoly of the transportation business in the Boundary Creek,  country.. And just at this, time, it. has  commenced to use the same tactics that  were so successful last April in defeating  the the Kettle River Valley Railway  charter; public opinion is being manufactured-in the offices of its newspaper organs���and the Miner happens to be -the  organ in Nelson.  The Canadian Pacific's plan of campaign includes the manipulation of boards  of trade, and work in this direction was  commenced in "Nelson three months ago.  There is not a merchant in Nelson who  does not believe in competitive transportation facilities; but the board of trade is  not made up of merchants. The board  will be manipulated to place itself on  record against the Kettle River Valley  charter, and one of the. moves in the game  isjtQ get the board to send W. A. Gfalliher  to Ottawa as Sts representative.  Every lawyer in Nelson, with one ex-  ic^,_JmsJ3Mn=Eetaih-.d-=directIy=or-  If the Canadian Pacific is guilty of unworthy pettiness in its treatment of a  small town in East Kootenay, then surely  is it not within reason to believe that it  would cripple a. smelter that interfered  with one of its own enterprises? The  Hall Mines smelter at Nelson is so situated  that it is almost entirely dependent on  the Canadian Pacific for transportation  facilities-. The Canadian Pacific is not  only in the transportation business, but it  is in the smelting business at Trail. Well,  then, is it reasonable to believe that it  accords the Hair Mines smelter every  facility that it gives its own smelter?  The Panadian Pacific is also in the express  indirectly, by the Canadian Pacific to help  that corporation bottle up the Boundary  Creek coiintry as it has bottled up the  Hall Mines smelter at Nelson.  The Miner this morning has an article,  headed "Why Corbin should not get the  charter," purporting to be the opinions of  a correspondent at __tossland, who has recently been on a trip through.the Bound--  ary Creek country. The correspondence  feads Very much like the speeches of a  Nelson lawyer, who is known to be a  stockholder in the Miner, and who has just  returned'from a trip through, the Boutrd-  ar,y Creek country. But, then, this is the  way piublic opinion is manufactured  whenever the Canadian Pacific; is in  . dan ger.    Asked what he would do if he had a  monopoly ofthe Kootenays in his lines,  the manager of one of Nelson's largest  wholesale houses replied, "1 would retire  in five years." That is business, and that  is; the kind of business the Canadian  Pacific Railway Company wants to do in  the Boundary Creek country.  The Tribune is again in danger. The  Loyal Order of Orangemen has decided to  withhold their patronage from it.  The Rossland Miner has been taken to  task for daring to criticize the Canadian  Pacific. The question might be asked,  why should Rossland get down on its  knees to the Canadian Pacific? Rossland  will yet be to British Columbia what  Butte is to Montana, that is, a point at  which millions of tous of freight originates. The bulk of the freight will be ore,  a commodity  that  the  officials of the  Canadian Pacific cannot as easily "corner"  as town lots in a small town. The Canadian Pacific cannot injure Rossland if it  tried.  "Of making many books  there is no end."

A Former   Consumptive of   Brooklyn  Tells  of His Restoration to Health.  There has been an increasing tendency  recently ou the part of consumptives to  seek drier and less variable climates as a  last resort before giving up hope. There  have been enough authenticated instances  of consumptives getting well, apparently  in the face of every indication that their  cases were hopeless, to inspire hope in the  breasts of other sufferers from the disease. Last week a young man belonging  to a Brooklyn family, who was a consumptive before he went away, returned  from Denver, Colorado, sound and well to  the surprise and gratification of his  friends. His recovery was a surprise to  himself and his friends.  "I found a great many consumptives in  Denver." he said in telling of his experiences, "and they were, known there by  the name of 'lungers.',. Wheu a fresh consignment of consumptive people came  into the city, residents looked at them  with a sort of contemptuous pity and remarked that another lot of 'lungers' had  arrived. I was asked almost as soon as I  came to Denver by a man in- the hotel I  stopped at, who, like me, went 1 o Colorado in the endeavor to get cured of consumption,if 'I was a lunger too.'

New Single Rail Railroad.  An English inventor has built a railroad on which trains run regularly at the  rate of 100 miles an hour, and frequently  jattain a speed of from two to three miles  minute. And it i*** a practical achieve-  Sment, with full-sized cars capable of  [carrying 100 passengers each, so practical,  [indeed, that F. B. Behr, the inventor, has  jjust formed a syndicate for constructing  line on his new system between Liver-  JpooL and Manchester. He calls it the  'Lightning Express Railway." It will  Imake the distance of about thirty miles  lin twenty minutes, including stops. Between stations the cars will frequently  ifctain a speed of two miles a minute.  Che trains run on a single rail set several  Ifeet above ground ou trestle work, and  :he motive power is furnished by electricity.. The cars somewhat resemble a  Ibig oblong bun, turned upside down, with  (wheels set thick along the part that answers for the bun crease, and hedged  .jout with guide wheels, so that it can-  iot jump the track along which it is pro-  A Chorus That Was Started at the Sound  of a Neighborhood Whistle.  The power drill is the thing nowadays  wherever rock in any considerable quantity is to be removed, but the hand drill  is still used where the rock is scattering  and there not so very much of it. In  drilling rock found in open trenches in  the street, there might be seen, even now,  in the day of the power drill, forty or  fifty men, hand drillers, scattered along in  a block ; a dozen or fifteen men holding as  many drills, and twice that number striking, two men On a drill.  The quick, sharp, vigorous pounding of  the steam drill, standing up firmly on its  slender steel legs, with every evidence of  power about it, and working away faster  than one can  count,  is always stirring.  One likes to stand and watch a steam drill,  but the   musical  note of steel on steel,  when the hammer strikes the drill, still  remains as.musical as ever, and one likes  to see   the hand drillers work,  too; the  man holding the drill sitting ona box,  perhaps, in the ti'euch and lifting the drill  slightly, and lifting it. a little after each  stroke, to give the point new rock to cup,  while the men strike on and on alternately   with   unfailing   regularity.     There's  little variation in the notes they sound  on the drills scattered along the trench,  but there's music in them all; its a chorus  that one likes to hear; it  was heard the  other morning from its vei'y opening note.  It was scant seven o'clock, but the men  were all in tlie trench and one or two drill  holders had already set the point of their  drills  upon   the rock  and were holding  them  ready.   Here and there along the  line was a man who had already grasped  his   hammer,   holding   it  by the handle  lwith,".the.head"restingr*upon"the":gruoun��d".  ^h^loreni^  4idwfylaib]n^yhe]ki"dey&dF  ,",>!r$ie4��^  "end" fdi*:tn6^1ine,'?in"^  ri��V"...,*&'$'    .r :$i>    ,*v.% Vv^s ^ i.,J��'- n "'.   ., r_.��w?ri -vLi^^_,uJv   .  sturdyS man. of, cheerful* mien ".with.^his-  5hammer;"rais���eJdraud.at.the,,first���sorund;not  ^Ip.wra^��tpr:seven-rgpwn'jLbicamneiupqnj'(.heu  id r ii jdhead' :w.Cth^aVriifgi hg��= blaw|la"ndsas��lii*s  ��:hamme&sprung 'Upward- ln.rebpundVlown  J$%-& -iv.-^rn~i:3��vAi.u"X,*.,v^;,._.��*lhkt?a-*4����� it.

Although  the place is fairly well ventilated at the  sides the atmosphere sometimes gives a  hazy look to the stage, which is the regulation small theatre stage fitted with curtains which do not roll up, but are simply  gathered and whisked above by theropes,  which run puckering string fashion.  Directly in the centre of the stage at the  front is the prompter's cage. The prompter stands three-quarters beneath the  stage, libretto in hand, and the actors depend on him to get through their lines.  He reads every line of the dialogue, indicating the man who is to say it with his  finger, and keeping a neck ahead of him  all the time. To ah occupant of a front  seat the performance is made highly  absurd.        .   ..   .  .   "-  Mr. Sifton's Peculiar Statesmanship.  While no person can help admiring Mr.  Sifton's saltatorial accomplishments, aud  admitting that he can out-dance any other  member of the cabinet, both in nimble-  ness of foot, gracefulness of demeanor  and variety of steps, we are not sure that  his other versatile attainments are worthy of the same high appreciation.

However, the  young gentleman is sometimes not without a little diplomacy and shrewdness. In  fact, the recent appointment of R. C. Miller ol Pembroke, Ontario, to a mining inspectorship in the Yukon incidentally displays considerable tact and discretion on  his part.   Mr. Miller is, or was, the editor  of the Pembroke Observer, and it scarcely  need be mentioned that the Observer is a  staunch Liberal organ.   He went to the  Klondyke last year in search of gold, but  apparently found more scandal and corruption than wealth in that remote region.  At any rate he wrote back his experiences  to his paper, and they were of that terrible   nature   to  arouse   all   his surplus  indignation and wrath. He was, he wrote,  compelled to listen all summer to the most  violent railings at the government and its  officials, who were charged with outrageous corruption, and after reaching Dawson  was forced to acknowledge the truth of  the accusations.   He had no hesitation in  declaring in his paper that if the government "did  not take strong and speedy  steps to end the orgie that is in progress  here they will not only have become partners in the dirt themselves, but shall have  permitted the continuance of a system  which must result in very great financial  and moral injury to the Dominion," and  Mr. Miller added:  "That the mining laws are being set  aside" on a colossal scale is beyond all question, and the bare-faced bribery is the  rule of the day is equally certain."  This is a pretty strong arraignment of  Mr. Sifton and his officials by a political  friend���an arraignment that was, by the  way, pooh-poohed by Mr. Sifton. and the  government organs. But it exhibited  signs of beingjuo more than the perenrsbr  of even more forcibly martialled facts.  The, minister of the interior, however,  was equal to the occasion. He discreetly  shut off further revelations of official misdoing by appeasing the righteous and  indignant wrath of the accusing editor  with a good fat office. It was Mr. Sifton's  improved mode of stifling criticism and  disarming hostilility to himself. He has  precedent for it; he worked it himself recently in Winnipeg with success, when  there was an uprising against him. With  this practice, the young Napoleon can  now glide into the affections of recalcitrant supporters with the same ease and  efficacy that ever attended sir Wilfrid's  sunny ways. But its pretty expensive to  the country,   Poor Old Toronto.  The Mail and Empire says of Toronto :  "This city seems to have no friends in  power, either in the Dominion or the province." Toronto is in a good condition  for annexation to the United States.  P. Burns c�� Co.  WHOLESALE   ANO   RETAIL  Meat Merchants  Wholesale Markets at fle/son, Rossland, Sandon and Greenwood.

AltliQugh there is an excellent  opporbiiuiby for an Atheripan vaudeville  company to win soldiers' hearts, all  Organizations have fought shy Of the city  up to date.  Outside of one or two purely Tagalo  theatres, the only steady place of amusement is the OircO Filipino, which is occiv  pied part of the time by a company Of  Filipino acrobats aud pjirt of the time by  a stock coiup-iriy Of Spanish operetta  singers. During the la-5t few weeks there  has been quite a run on s-arzuela, Or Spanish comic opera. The company is c'ojii-  posed Of Spanish singers who drifted in  from Spain when the Philippine archipelago was a colony of their nation. The productions are not ac all extravagantly got  up, but the dialogue seems to please an  audience of two or three hundred Spanish  residents each night and the singing and  dancing are enjoyed by Spaniards, Americans and Filipinos alike; The place is  advertised to open at 8:30 every night and  the bill generally is composed of three  one-act operettas. There is a change of  bill nightlyand acontinuous performance.  The latter feature is made possible at  present by (he assistance of a glee elub  composed of fifty Spanish soldiers, who  occupy the stage between acts and sing;  .songs of their native land. To the American this is oue of the big features of the  entertainment. No accompaniment is  used, the men all relying on the pitch  given by the leader at the start and his  baton movement throughout the selection.  The Circo Filipino on the outside appears to be a jumble of sheds with corrugated iron roofs>, but within there is a  fair-sized auditorium with a cemeut floor.  The butacus or orchestra seats are wide  mahogany arm chairs with cane bottoms,  and arranged with an aisle down the  centre. At the sides are a couple of rows  of chairs extending the length of the  place, and directly above these are the  balconies where the box parties sit.
