NELSON, B. C, TUESDAY, MORNING,  APRIL 9,  1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  COAL CARS IN THE LAKE  BARGE NO.  15   CAME   TO   GRIEF  YESTERDAY.     ������'  Two Men Supposed to Have Lost Their  Lives in the Accident���One  Tramp  Saved.  A   serious accident occurred to  C. P. R. barge No.  15   yesterday  morning, while on her way from  .   Kootenay Landing to Nelson.   The  bargo left tho Landing at 5 a. m. in  tow of the tug Valhalla,  captain  Taylor..  At the outset the waters  were choppy and a good stiff breeze  was blowing, but   before an hour  had elapsed the wind had abated  and  the lake was   as   smooth   as  glass.    On the barge were  15 cars,  laden with coal and coke. All went  well till about half the journey had  been accomplished, when the strain  appeared to be  rapidly  increasing.  Then, without a moment's  warning   tlie    big    craft    lurched   to  one     side,       and       over       went  the five cars from the outer  rails,  into the lake, which at this point-is  from 300 to 400 feet deep.     In  the  lurch the hog chains  were  broken,  and the barge would have foundered  were   it   not   that   she   suddenly  lurched to the other side.    But  as  it was three other cars fell off, and  those remaining left the rails.    It  looked as though all  would  go to  the bottom, and to save the tug  from a like fate the cable was-cut.  Then a man was seen in the water,  who struggled on tothe unsteady  craft and mounted one of the cars.  He cried lustily for help, appealing  to those on board the tug not to  leave him to perish. He was rescued,  and heading round captain Taylor1  succeeded in - pushing  the  sinking  barge ashore, but before she touched  " bottom she was well  under  water,  as was also the lower part of tbe  remaining cars.    This was  all that  could be done, under the circumstances and the Valhalla  was  put  about for Nelson, where she arrived  a couple of hours later to report  the accident.  The tramp who was rescued from  the wreck says that oh the previous  night there were -two other men  with him stealing a ride from  Fernie. He does not know their  names, but thinks that they were on  the cars when the barge left Koote-  , nay. Landing^ It the unfortunate  fellows were on the outer row [of  cars which went down, there can  be no doubt that they lost their  lives. Captain Taylor saw nothing  of the missing ones.  The only theory; upon which the  accident can be explained is that  the barge was leaking, and had  H;aken=in=so-much���water^as^tocaiise;  her to lurch over. She has only  been in use a few years, and was  believed to be sound. The loss,  -provided the cars now beached-on  the barge can be saved, will be  about $10,000. It is the most  serious accident which has occurred  since the opening of the Crow's  Nest Pass line, and might have  brought about'the loss of the tug  also but for the prompt action of  captain Taylor in cutting the cable.  -An effort will be made to raise  the barge aud save the cars on her,  but those which went down in the  lake are irrecoverably lost.  Notice to Quit.  A one armed man and a hand-  deformed brother were before J. K.  Strachan,- J. P;j yesterday. The  pair have been begging around  town for the past week or two, and  on Saturday night drank to drunkenness and fought to fierceness.  They had their Easter breakfast in  the lockup, and grumbled because  the seasonable dainties were not  supplied them. The magistrate  gave them three days to leave  town; they left in three hours,  never more tb return.  things known to the art. A motto  in the supper room, conspicuously  displayed, read, "No Chinese Cooks  Here." ..     ' '  Mining on Perry Creek.  A letter was received in town  yesterday from W. B. McFarland,  who reports some rich strikes on  Perry creek, a tributary of the St.  Mary's river. The recent finds are  of free-milling ore, and the showing is said to be substantial. There  is a good deal of placer mining still  carried on in the rich old river,  some of those engaged in the work  making handsomely. . McFarland  predicts that this will be the.busiest  year the district has seen in a  decade.  Nelson Quoit Club.  There was a large attendance at  the opening of the quoit" club yesterday afternoon. Among the members are some very promising players who would show up well against  any team. It .is the intention to  try and arrange a tournament with  some of the outside towns during  the summer. Weekly competitions  for gold, silver and bronze buttons  will soon be started, when many  closely contested games are looked  for. Several of the curlers have  joined the club, some of them playing good games while others cannot get their quoits over the hog  line. The score for yesterday's  games, president vs. vice-president,  was as follows:  . President's.  No. gam��a.  .1 J. H.

Caution to Bicyclists.  Nearly every wheel in Nelson was  out yesterday, and Baker street received its full share of patronage.  There was no "scorching" observable, but there were a few accidents  -to pedestrians.- -Wheelmen"did.not  exercise sufficient caution in turning street corners or speeding over  street crossings. . Mrs. Kelly,  ���Stanley streot,-wasr-kribeked.-down-  by one of the riders at .the crossing  of Ward street-on Baker. She was  so severely shaken up that she had  to be carried to her .home in a carriage. A few ��� men were also  downed by the bicyclists, but not  injured. A little more caution and  the use of the bell would save a lot  of trouble.  ���       ;      Races in England.

Manila, April 8. ���General Mc-  Rossland, April 8.���The E vening  Star yesterday closed down on  account of the condition of the  roads and the likelihood of not being able to ship for the next sixty  or ninety days. ~ The following  dispatch was received from Spokane  directing that the mine be shut  down :,  Spokane, April 6, 1901.���  Mr. C. P. Chamberlain, Rossland,  B. 0.: At a meeting of the directors  held here tonight, it was resolved  to shut down the Evening Star  mine for the present.  ' (Signed) Geo. B. McAuley,  Managing Director.  Mr. Chamberlain, who has been  in charge of the work on the Evening Star since November 29th, 1899,  when operations were resumed on  the property by the reorganization  of the company, stated last evening  that the .last ' shipments made  showed that the ore ran. $30 to the  ton in gold. There is a good showing of ore in the mine on the third  level and elsewhere. Two assessments of one-half a cent each have  been levied and tho shares are still  assessable to the extent of a cent.  It was thought best to close down  the mine instead of levying another  assessment, and as v. the roads will  not be in good, condition for two or  perhaps three ��� months, ' it .* was  deemed expedient to-cease operations for that period. ' When operations are resumed there is ore  enough in sight on the third level  and in other places which can be  taken put and used for the running  expenses. The' property has been  developed. down * .to' the '100 foot  level and isi in it much better condition than wheu the new company  took hold of it.  and cannot properly look after No.  5 district.

Daughters of the Empire Protest.  Quebec, April 8.��� The local  branch of the Daughters of the  Empire have entered a protest  against the erection of a memorial  by Boston gentlemen to general  Montgomery, killed in thV'assault  on Quebec, December 3lft, 1775.  The city council is requested not to  allow the removal of the board in  the cliff bearing the words, "Here  Montgomery Fell" until the Daughters of the Empire have erected a  suitable memorial in honor of sir  Guy Carleton and the soldiers of  1775. '  ,    ...  ���'.;"' Roy Reappointed.  Montreal, April 8.'��� Lieutenant-  colonel Roy has been. reappointed  to the temporary command of military district No. 5. This action of  the militia department, which  means the revoking of the appointment of lieutenant-colonel Benson  of Victoria, British Columbia, as  successor to lieutenant-colonel Roy  has raised strong feelings among  militia men, some of whom claim  that Montreal is made a sort of football ground for military commanders which seriously interferes with  the efficiency of the militia. Colonel  I Roy is at present D. O. C. of No. 0  Rossland, April 8.���The Rossland Miners' Union today balloted  ou the question as to .whether a  strike should be inaugurated to sustain the muckers in their demand  for an advance of from $2.50 to $3.00  in the pay per day, and as to  whether certain other grievances  should be remedied on penalty of a  walk out. When the balloting was  concluded last evening it was found  the vote stood 12 short of the number, required for a three-quarters  majority, the number necessary for  the strike, and this, of course,  means that there will be no strike.  Thejofficers of thejinion^aremuch  disgruntled over the result. They  claim a number of grievances, and  the chief cause of theseis the violation of the agreement entered into  last year in which it is claimed the  mine managers promised to allow  the officers of the union the privilege of soliciting members from  among non-union miners.  It is alleged that this agreement  has been broken by refusing the  walking delegates access to the  mines. They also object to the system of espionage which exists in  some of the mines and object to being spied on by detectives of an  alien agency. They also-object,  they say, to the attempted disruption of the union by the;! frequent  discharging of union men on various  pretexts and also to the ^importation of alien labor. On the other  hand, the bosses allege that^if the  strike had been organized that they  would have closed down their mines  and lowered the scale of wages to  $3 for machine men and $2 for  muckers against $3.20 and $2.50,  the present wages.  Italian Fleet Arrive.    .  Toulon, April 8.��� The Italian  squadron has arrived here, the  battleship Lepanto, with the duke  of Genoa on board, heading the  line. Salutes were exchanged and  an official visit was paid to vice-  admiral DeBeaumont, who said he  was proud to welcome the fleet of a  friendly nation. The duke of Genoa  expressed the happiness he felt at  being charged with such an agreeable mission.  Washington, April S.���The Chinese minister was an early caller at  the state department today to seek  information as to the report, . based  on advices at the state department,  that there had been an interruption  of the diplomatic "intercourse between Russia and China.   The information before the state depart-,  ment does not permit any clear explanation of the real state of a if airs.  However, the doubt arises from the  fact that Mr. Rockhill's latest despatch does not mention any such  disarrangement   and   the    officials  feel bound to accept this as pretty  strong evidence that prior intimations of the discord have not taken  actual form.    Yet the despatch received .from   Mr.  Squires, American charge d'affaires in the absence  of minister Conger, appears to have  been quite explicit that the difficulty had already made itself manifest.    It is thought possible at the  state department that the circumstances to which Mr. Squires refers  occurred prior to the receipt in Pekin of the last Russian  note,- and  that the trouble may have been adjusted subsequently.    It will be remembered, however, that the fact  developed in Washington "about a  week ago that Russia had delivered  to China what amounted'to an ultimatum on the signing of the Manchuria agreement.  Another Rebellion.  . Pekin, April, 8.���The rumors  which have been current dur'ng  the past few .days,of the outbreak  of-a rebellion headed by^'geneial-  Tung Fii Si'anj-'formerly commander  of the northern army, in the province of Mongolia and Shen Sia  have not been absolutely authenticated. Li Hung Chang and prince  Ching have received information on  the subject, which, though indefinite, still proves that the court is  seriously alarmed.  General Tung Fu Sian, according  to last accounts, wns about 150  miles from the court with 11,000  regular troops, nil f-upposed to be  devoted to him. Tlie court has  about the same number of soldiers  at Sian Fu, but it is probable that  the Boxers of Tung Fu Sian are  better drilled and better armed. It  is believed that the Mongolian rebellion was brought about through  ^agentjLoLprince^Tuan^and^general  Tung Fu Sian. Li Hung Chang  thinks there are 5000 regular troops  in Mongolia and inclines to the belief that they have, not joined in  the rebellion.  trie   Company,   the    St.    Joseph  (Missouri).

Pierpont Morgaa it was learned  today that there is ground for the  story that a new corporation is  being considered for the purpose.of  carrying a controlling interest in  the stocks of the largest railway  companies, whieh some, have styled  the new transcontinental system.  This new corporation, if formed,  would hold sharss of the Northern  Pacific, Burlington and Erie and  possibly the St. Paul and Great  Northern. It is not settled whether  the debentures of the new company  would be issued against the underlying securities, but this is considered likely. This is the method  pursued because of the railway  securities' company ��� which was  organized by the Harriman people  for the purpose of handling the  Illinois Central.   .  In connection with a plan to  change the charter of the St. Paul  road so as to permit a majority of  the stock, instead of two-thirds, to  increase the capital, some' new  points of interest were brought out.  It was alleged in the application  that James J. Hill and associates  had made a traffic deal between the  Northern Pacific and Burlington  which diverted a large amount of  business to the Burlington which  formerly went over the St.' Paul  road and,it was alleged that unusual discrimination' is being-practiced underthe new. regime against  the St. Paul company.- It* is claimpd  that Mr. Hill and"-his^-assbciates[  have'a laTge'blockofTSt. Paul"st6l;k'  and seek to control it.

Boston, Mass., April 8.���The  freshet conditions in the various  rivers of New England resulting  from the copious rains of the past  week or more did not improve today. The rivers continued to rise,  and indications at nearly all points  were that the record of the flood of  1890 would be repeated if not surpassed. The absence of ice, which  went out last week from many of  the rivers, thus far has .prevented  serious damage to property, but  today thousands of mill.operatives  were compelled to stop work, as  factoi'ies could not be operated on  account of high water. Railroads  and highways suffered from washouts. ���         __ ���  Gaslight Trust.  New York, April 8.���Emerson  MacMillan, who was one of the  prominent stockholders of the East  River Gas Company, which is now  a part of the Consolidated Gas Company, said ��� today, that he was  making arrangements to consolidate  a number of gas light, traction and  water power companies throughout  the United States and Canada.

' New York, April 8.���Neither employers nor employed have made a  decisive move in the wage dispute  that may-terminate in a strike on  the Central railroad of New Jersey.  It is expected the men will confer  in the next 24 hours and agree upon  a plan of action.  Cleveland, Ohio. April 8.���  Grand chief Arthur of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers arrived here today. Discussing the interview with vice-president Warren  of the Central Railroad of New  Jersey, Mr. Arthur said: "We  know all about the Central offices  Joeiag= closed=Sunday==afternoou.=  Our first communication to the  officials of the company asking for  a conference was sent on Wednesday last. Replies were received,  but the officials did not agree to  hold a conference with U9." Mr.  Arthur has no authority to order a  strike. The matter must be voted  upon by the members of the organization. Whether this will be done,  Mr. Arthur declined to say.  .        Old Law Will Be Applied.  Cape Town, April 8.���It is understood that the Gazette tomorrow  will warn colonists that acts of rebellion afcer April 12th will not be  tried under the special law of the  last session, but by the old common  law, under which rebels are punishable with death or any terms of  imprisonment the court may desire  to impose,       .,  Rice's Will.

THE  HUDSON'S BAY  STOEES  BAKER STREET        NELSON  ��ire i&vibtxnz.  . _______^_^___^_____^^���^_^���  The government qf Nova Scotia  has made an advance on current  methods in granting assistance to  railway enterprises. It recently decided to lend $10,000 per mile on  170 miles of railway, from Halifax  to Yarmouth, with interest at Sh  per cent. This loan is to be repaid  with a sinking fund of lh per cent-,  so that the company receiving the  loan will be required to provide  five per cent upon the whole amount  of government assistance.  - The Dominion government should  make some suitable provision fpr  "the^Canaliianl^K^h^verbeeBrTiil^  abled iu South Africa, and for the  widows and orphans of those who  fell. Of the patriotic fund, which  amounted to $350,000, some $150,-  000 have been distributed, leaving  $200,000 to meet the demands of  some 350 dependents. This sum is  altogether inadequate. Invested at  five per cent it would earn less than  $30 per annum for each dependent,  which would barely cover funeral  expenses, to say nothing of maintenance.  When men who are boosting for  '  charter managers are forced to sup-'  . press letters forwarded to them for  public circulation they have a very  weak case.    This is what happened  at the recent meeting in Vancouver,  when  E. V. Bod well and his  string of orators were endeavoring  .  to mislead Vahcouyerites into the  ' belief that in return for a subsidy  ,  of $1,300,000 the promoters of the  ".'V. V. & E. would' give the people  of the province the advantage of  -railway competition from the Coast  to Kootenay.    Among those who  were invited to speak at the meet-  ing was. Joseph Martin, leader of  the   Opposition.    Mr.   Martin   declined the invitation to speak, but  ' he forwarded a letter outlining the.  '  railway  policy of the Opposition,  in which he stated  that the only  way competition could be.secured  was    by   government    ownership.  -Jhis was not calculated tp advance  the cause of the men who sought to  secure a fat subsidy, so these spellbinders held a council of war and  decided to suppress the letter. This  h��s called forth a protest, from  Fighting Joe, and when the Vancouver resolutions reach the legislature he may have something to  siy concerning the boosters and  their methods.  That Nelsou has a case of smallpox on its hands is due  in  a very  great measure to the activity displayed by Dr. Fagan,  secretary  of  die   Provincial  Board   of   Health,  who, during his recent visit,"Was instrumental   iu   having   raised the  quarantine imposed by the city  of  Nelson against iniected places.   Dr.  Pagan considered that the measures  taken by the medical health officer  of Nelson, for the protection of this  uity, reflected upon  the  Provincial  Board, and during the local health  officer's absence at the Coast the  Nelson quarantine was raised.   The  result was that a Phoenix man arrived in Nelson  Saturday   evening  with.a clean bill of health and the  smallpox, and the city, of Nelson is  put to the expense of looking after  him.   Had the   quarantine, which  Dr. Fagan objected to, been  maintained, it is likely that the  patient  could have been detained, and kept  out of Nelson.     Three new cases  have been reported from  Phoenix  today, and the Nelson  quarantine  has been re-established.  tered this year. -It is estimated  that there are more than 500,000  carcasses of ponies ranging over the  country tributary to this market.  Stockmen are very anxious that  these horses should be driven away  to preserve the range for cattle and  sheep. Horse meat has found favor  in Sweden and Norway and several  orders have been received from  there.  After Many Years.  New York, April 8.���Miss Ada I.  Griffiths of Newark, when crossing  the ocean in September, nine years  ago, threw overboard a bottle containing a message to the - late W.  W. Byington, a lawyer in Newark.  On the back of the message she  wrote that $2 reward would be  paid to the finder if the message  was sent to its destination. The  bottle was thrown overboard in the  middle of the ocean. Miss Griffiths  had forgotten the incident when on  April 4th she received a letter with  a foreign postmark. It was from  Ada'E. Bodtker of Kristiansund,  North Norway, and dated March  22nd. The writer said the bottle  had been picked up by a poor Norwegian fisherman off the coast of  Smollen, an island, and brought to  Krintiansnud, and that an English  woman in' the town had translated  the message, but could not decipher  the date. She asked that 'the reward be sent to her for the fisherman, who was poor and deserving.  Miss Griffiths decided to send $5 for  the finder.   Filipinos for the Navy.  New York, April 8.���According  to a special from Washington to  the Herald insti uctions have been  cabled by secretary of the navy  Long to rear-admit al Remy, commander-in-chief of the Asiatic  squadron, authorizing him to enlist  SOOnativesof thePhilippines for service on board the" former Spanish  gunboats and other small vessels  which are to be maintained exclusively in the Philippines. These  men will form the nucleus of ah im-  Train Wreck on Central Pacific.  Ogden, Utah, April 8.���News was  received here today that the Central Pacific westbound overland  limited, due to arrive in San Francisco at 0:35 last evening, was  wrecked two miles east of Wells,  Nevada. Qf the meager details of  the disaster which reached here it  was learned that two firemen were  killed, and that some of the cars of  the train were badly smashed and  that the Pullman caught firft. Tt i*  not thought there were any fata!  ities among the passengers, as none  have been reported to division  headquarters. The train was drawn  by two engines, both of which suffered severely. The cause of the  accident is unknown.    .* Q  Has the Portrait.  Liverpool, April 8.���C. Moreland  Agnew upon his arrival here on the  steamer Etrnria this morning admitted that he had the Gainsborough portrait of the duchess of  Devonshire. Mr. Agnew himself  carried the picture ashore, but he  declined to furnish any details regarding its recovery and proceeded  to London.  Appeal to Be Argued.  Albany, N.

Rear admiral Crown-  inshield, chief of the bureau of navigation, believes that besides resulting in the government obtaining  effective service, the employment'of  natives will spread respect, for the  American flag and create a strong  feeling of loyalty.  American Jockeys for Austria.  New York, April 8.���Albert Rox-  tray of Vienna, Austria, commissioner for several Austrian horse  owners, has arrived in this city on  the steamship La Champagne to engage American jockeys to ride* in  Austria during the coming season.  Mr. Roxtray engaged several American boys, who are now in Vienna,  for Austrian stables. He says they  are very popular and all anxious  for the opening of the Austrian  racing season April 15th.

They will  remain in Malone a day or two before being taken toPlattsburg.  Plenty of Horse Meat.  Portland, Oregon, April 8.���The  horse abbatoir at Linnton which  was shut down last fall has started  up again.

Memphis,   Tenn.,   April 8.���The  Commercial Appeal today published  the following : A negro giving the  name of Levi Charles, and claiming  to be   the   desperado   who   killed  captain John T. Day and patrolman  Peter   Lamb,   and   also    to   have  caused the death of ten other persons and  the wounding of thirty  men, women and children at New  Orleans   from   July 24 th   to July  27th, 1900, lies at the point of death  in a pesthouse at  Clarksdale,  Miss.  Captain Mason has received a telephone message at the police station  from Dr. Martin, health officer at  Clarksdale,   in   which  the   doctor  states that a negro was received at  the pesthouse suffering from smallpox.   The negro, realising that he  was abemt to die,  made   a   most  startling confession.    He said his  right name was Levi Charles and  that he had killed a woman and two  policemen at New Orleans.  He says  he managed  to escape from that  city and made  his  way to Mississippi, where he assumed the name  of George Peters.   The negro says  he   has killed seven  persons. , He  says   that  while  going  under the  name   of George Peters he killed  three , men,   whose    names    were  George Paintly, George Roberts and  B. Moore,   He also confesses tq the  murder of two,.women, whose names  he does not give.   If tbo negro is  Levi Charles, alias Robert Charles,  the murderer of police captain Day  and   patrolman   Lamb,   then   the  police of New Orleans have made a  mistake in stating  that they killed  him. - .

New York, March S. ��� The  romantic story of the courtship of  Miss Marie Satterfield, daughter of  Mrs. John Satterfield of Buffalo,  and Franz Josef count von Larisch  of,Austria has become known at  Allentown, Pennsylvania, through  friends of the couple, according to  a special to the Journal and Advertiser. The prospective bride,  who has -just reached her majority,  met her future husband a year ago  while touring the continent..

Another woman in a letter to the,  colonial secretary offered herself  and a few other first class lady  barbers. Naturally the colonial  office authorities are doing their  utmost to discourage applications  from women other than' those who  are 9elf dependent, and girls of the  servant type are urgently advised'  not to go out at all.. It is very  doubtful whether there will be any  openings for them and the public  funds caunot be used for the purpose of granting free passage to the  Cape.         "Secretary."

misleading. During the ' construction of the mill underground woi k

The visiting school teachers had
a good opportunity of taking in the

meeting adjourned at about 3

enay's capital.

At Nelson.
0. Lemoine, senior partner in the
firm of Lemoine & Viau, contractors for the new postoffice-
custom house building to be put in
Nelson, is in town. Mr. Lemoine
was seen by a Tribune reporter
last night, and said that he had
practically let the contract for the
excavation work, nnd lad also
selected the stone to be used in tlie
foundation. The latter will como
from the quarry at tlie rear fif tho
general hospital. Asked as to when
work would commence, Mr. Leuioino
said that he hoped to see the excavations begun in about, a week,
and once work was started it would
bo continued to completion.0 "I
hope to be through with the job in
about eleven, months," said he.
"What marble will be used?" waa
"That I cannot say at present,"
replied the contractor. "Lain going to Kaslo this week to see the
marble quarry there. I have seen
samples of the material and I think
it is very good. I had some samples
of the marble from Salmo, but I
understand that the roads are bad
there and there might be some delay in getting the material. I want
no delaj\"~"
"Are you taking any men from
the east for the work here?'' asked
tha reporter.
"No," promptly responded Mr.
Lemoine, "none but my foreman. I
believe I can get all the men I want
here—I hope I can—and all the material too. I have seen the. brick
made by tho local firm, and ic is as
good as could be desired. As soon
as I can make arrangements I will
leave my foreman here and will go
back east myself. I have the military stores under construction .at
Ottawa, the post office at Hull and
the postoffice at New Westminster.
I will be" away until about the 28th
of June. When J come hack I will
remain in Nelson until the job is
is completed. There will be no delay in starting work,"
Rumors Tliat Have  No   Foundation.
The rumor wired to Tiie Tribune"
from the coast that Tatlow of Vancouver   was  to  step  into  premier
Diinsmuir's official .shoes is silly rot.
The rumor that JalTray had made
terms on the.Crow's Nest Southern
charter bill, is also without foundation. These reports emanate from
the Vancouver World,.which is almost as unreliable ou all questions
as is J. Roderick ,Roberrsou's Nel:

Fire at the Sawmill. -
Au alarm was sounded last night
summoning the fire, brigade to tlie
Nelson Saw & Planing'Mills. The
response was prompt, but the fire
was confined to-.the smokestack.
For about twenty minutes the
flames aud sparks shot up, but as
the hose were playing on the surrounding roofs and lumber, no
damage was done. The firemen
worked hard, and in recognition of
their services Charles Hillyer, the
president and general manager of

Easter .in Barracks.
Tbe Salvation Army barracks
were crovvded last night, the special
attractions being a concert and a
merry time. There was a free and
easy air about the whole entertainment which made it very enjoyable.
The army band played several
choice selections, and there were
also many instrumental and vocal
solos, duets, quartets, etc., all of
which were admirably rendered
and loudly applauded. During the
evening tea, coffee, and cake were
served to all. A very pleasant
evening was spent.

Five girld draped in black, represented the weeping Marys—weeping for a crucified Christ. Then
