The opera house was filled at the mass  meeting of citizens of Nelson held on  Tuesday night, at which president Estes  of the U.B.R.E. was the speaker of ���the  evening. The chair was taken hy S. S.  Taylor, K.C., and on the platform were  Messrs. John Burns, R. A; Elliot, and  George Horsted, Dr. Wright and Rev.  J. Reid.   ���-  Mr. Taylor introduced the speaker of  the evening in a short eulogistic speech,  and controverted some of the misstatements made against labor unions. He  also read letters from the heads of departments under whom Mr. Estes had  worked, showing that the reports detrimental to Mr. Estes which have been  circulated in Vancouver were wholly  false; that he had worked for the  Southern Pacific over eleven years and  left voluntarily.  Mr. Esvtes beganjiis lecture by saying  that as this would he^iis only opportunity of addressing a kelson audience  during this visit, he was going to try  and condense five lectures into one, as  he wished to give a general outline-of  trades unionism in its.- varied phase..  He began by explaining the work of the  operating department of railways, showing how each superintendent "of every  division of a railway, had to send in reports of the expenses of operating his  division, made out solas to show- to .*>  fraction of a cent the"cost per -ton per  mile of all freight carried. Then, at the  head ofiice these costs were all tabulated and sent to each, superintendent,  and the man who was the highest at  once started in reducing, this going on  and-on indefinitely, with the result  that each man employed on railioad  work on American lines in 1896 handled  445 tons of freight, whilst in 1900 each  man handled 491 tons. The average  amount per annum paid as wages in  1896 was.$567.60, whilst in 1900 the  average was reduced to _$5f>2 -per man  per annum, although- they handled 46  tone more freight to each man, or over  46,000,000 tons. Out of l^O.OOO railway, men, only.-248,000 were-organized!  These facte reminded ���Mr. Estes of - a  .visitjie once made to a'lunatic asylum,  whore two.friends of his: were keepers.  ���They/ had^fif ty <", dangerpue-lariatics-. in-  .fch'eir,,charge_i?- .Tie* said ?^A^e^V.itnotr  .afraid thevjwilL-comDincaifd overpower  you-two:' ,~"Oh, no" said'one- friend,  "crazypeopleneyercombine?'-' * -  * Speaking of labor-saving^devices, Mr.  Estes said they "were all*, right if properly used." He was shown-an. air-compressor or wind-jammer in one shop  which saved in that .shop the 1-ibor of  fifteen men. He asked themauager  what became, of these'men.* "I don't  know," he said. "They"were let out,  and where ,we employed 100 men we  now .employ 85." : Mr. Estes argued  that this was not the proper way to use  labor-saving devices'. What should he  done, he said, was to reduce the hours  of labor so as still to employ the 100  men, otherwise the 15 men let out may  go hungry; and" if this kind of thins  goes on you may have a French revolution or something"worse. "-*     "���  Mr. Estes then went on lo talk about  freight classification and the standardization of wages. J. M. Egan, president of the general manager's association, wanted standard* wages in each  department of railway work. This  meant that the rate of wage prevailing  iirthe East should be accepted in the  West.���What- was -wanted,���however,  was that the wages paid in the West  should be paid in the East, and there  should be a leveling up and filling in,  instead of a leveling down.  Speaking next on federation and  amalgamation, he said, in federation if  one organization becomes disgruntled it  can pull out and is no worse off. In an  amalgamation, such as .the U.B.R.E.,  however, any branch could* pull out,  but it could not take the treasury with  it. He instanced the case of the amalgamation of United R. E. Sacramento,  No. 5, which had over 2,000 members,  meeting every Monday* as brethren,  the* engineers, track walkers, blacksmiths, etc., all sitting together-; but  not bringing .up business pertaining  only to their-own order.^ The engineers, blacksmiths, etc., meet as separate orders on special nights, when the  business of each order is brought up.  If the engineers have a grievance, they  talk it over; then it is presented to the  official'who can put it right. If he and  those above him refuse to interfere, it  is then brought to the meeting at which  all in the amalgamation are present and  discussed. Then, if a strike isdgclared,  it has the assistance and support of the  whole of the. amalgamation of United  R. E. -  Mr. Estes then went on to explain  that railway men had great difficulty  in leaving any company, owing to the  system of clearance cards, as, if a certain mark was put upon the card its  significance was known to those to  whom it was presented and employment was refused. Then, again, some  companies would not engage men- over  45 years old, others 40 years and down  to 28 years, so that if a" man left his  employment he might not be able to  get work on any other line.  True unionism, Mr. Estes said, is not  the end���only the means. There should  be no use for anyNinion; the government should be sufficient protection to  the working man. You now pay two  unions. Why? Because a class has  captured the government. You have  the ballot, but class leaders put up the  men you vote for, and whichever side  get8 in the working men get left.  .Mr. Bodwell tried to persuade Mr.  Justice Walkem that he (Estes) wanted  the men to strike, and ordered them to  do so.. The very reverse was the case.  He wanted no strikes. Every strike is  a lo*-s���worse loss in the United States  iban here. In a big strike the. employers call out the- police and they shoot  the strikers, or the striker is taken before a court which the employers own,  and in the end if the men win and get a  10 per cent raise, the various employers  get up a cry of dear labor and raibe  price? of food and raiment 30 per cent,  so-you are out 20 per cent anyway.  In conclusion, Mr. Estes said the ballot box is the only salvation. .Everything else is only thimble-rigging. Do  not let party bosses put up figure-heals  for you. In the States both Democrats  and Republicans were working for the  millionaires. At San Francisco the  Democrats and Republicans put up two  millionaires, Tobin and , Wells, for  mayor. The working men put up  Eugene E. Schmidt*, and carried him  against thf millionaires. There was a  strike of street car employees, and had  either Tobin or Wells been mayor the  police would have been armed and - put  on the ca**s, as the manatrer of the company requested should be done. But  Schmidt said no; if there was any lawlessness on fhe part of the men he would  punish it. The consequence wns that  everything was quiet���no fichts���and  the strike was settled in a few days.  A collection was taken up when Mr."  Estes had been speaking about anhour,  and after continuing for another hour  in a most fluent and convincing manner, Mr." Estes resumed his* seat amid  loud applause.  THE ELECTORAL BOUNDARIES  PLANING MILL DESTROYED BY-FIRE.  Eire broke *��� out on Thursday after,  noon in the sash and door factory of the  Kootenay, River Lumber Co,. Sparks  from the smokestack-are-'supposed to  have.eaused it by falling on the rpofv  fr<Spro��1t*noticed 'tllg_ blaze andn.went  on thu roof to put it out. - Ih-"tKo -laat  fiveyears the roof had t often' been ~on  fire, but this time the usual'-appliances  were ofno use, and the smoke and heat  drove him down. The men working in  the factory were driven out and had  not time to geb'-their tools or coats out,  only one tool chest being saved. ~ ���  . By the time-the fire brigade arrived,  probably no more than three minutes  fi om the start, the whole building was  one .vast furnace and the heat was  something terrific. Alongside the building the C.P.R. track runs, and two  loaded cars standing ou the siding soon  began to blaze. The yard engine came  from the station and drew the cars  ..way. ,        . /  By this time, perhaps ten 'minutes  .ifter the fire started, the firemen had  six streams playing at full force, and  the heat was not so great. The hi igade  worked splendidly and succeeded in  confining the fire to the building it first  started in. The Hudson's Bay Co.'s  warehouse was in danger for some  time, but the iron sheeting" with which  it was covered no doubt saved it. The  water had to be turned on it, as the  iron was nearly red hot.  Spark"8_set���fire-to "various-pi aces- in"  the mill on the water front, and captain Seaman did good work with the  Kokanee. He brought her from the  city wharf to the mill, put the  pumps to work, and the boatmen carried the fire hose ashore and put out  any incipient fire that was to be seen.  The loss is thought to he about $6,000  and there is $5,000 insurance.  Mr. Gigot, manager of the Hudson's  13ay Co., was eloquent, in his appreciation of the work of the firemen, and  sent some of the company's best firewater to be sampled by the workers. '���.-  This was the fiercest fire ever seen in  Nelson, and the able manner in which  it was fought reflects the greatest  credit upon all concerned. No trouble  was "experienced in regard to the water  supply, the hydrants all being in first-  rate order and the pressure good.  Chief Lillie did good work, and assistant chief Chambers was at the front all  the time, the amateur firemen assisting  him having a very hard and hot time.  We Want a Lead Tariff.  A public meeting is to be held this  afternoon at 4 p.m. in the opera house,  to protest against the way the Dominion government are treating this district in regard to the taiiff on lead.  Much'indignation is being expressed in  the city, and some strong resolutions  will be carried on the subject.  Gone East for His Health.  Harry Wright, mining recorder, who  has just recovered from an attack of  tvphoid, has received from the government a six weeks' leave of absence, and  left on Thursday with Mrs. Wright for  his old home in Beeton, Ontario. They  will also go to New York, where they  will visit with Mrs. Wright's sister.  Conservative Executive Make's Recommends*  tions for Dominion Constituencies. -  (Special to The Tribune.)  Victoria, B.C, April 18.���The executive of the Provincial Conservative Association, having been requested by  R. L. Borden, leader, of the Conservative party in the house of commons, to  forward him at Ottawa a schedule of  the boundaries of the electoral districts  of the province for the redistribution  now before parliament, a meeting was  called.for that purpose, and was held in  the hall of the Order of Eagles last  night. Besides the members of the executive, about thirty other prominent  Conservatives, including- Chailes Wilson, K.C., of Vancouver, and colonel  the Hon." E. G-. Prior, were present.  John Houston of Nelson, president of  the association, occupied the chair.  The meeting recommended that the  provincial,electoral districts of Golden,  Fernie, Cranbrook, Ymir, Kaslo, Slocan, Revelstoke, and the cities of Nelson  and Rossland be one district, to be  called - Kootenay; -that Cariboo, Lillooet, West Yale, North Yale, East  Yale, Grand Forks, Greenwood and  Similkameen be the district of Yale-  Cariboo; that the provincial districts  of Dewdney, Chilliwack, Delta, Richmond and the city of New Westminster  be the district of New Westminster.  That the city of Vancouver be one district, that the city of Victoria be one  district, that the "provincial districts pf  Alberni, South Nanaimo, " Cowichan,  Esquimalt, South Victoria, North Victoria and the city of Nanaimo be tlie  district of Nanaimo, and that Comox,  Skeenaand Atlin be the district of Cas-  iar. The boundaries as "Outlined above  give the province seven districts, each  of which is made up wholly of provincial  electoral districts, and not portions of  provincial districts, as at present.- No  other business was transacted at the*  meeting.       *"' ' *--" '  The bill amending the assessment act.  is practically., through committee.  Crown-granted" mineral and placer.  claims are taxed twenty-five,c-ento an  acre,"amHf their owners do $200" worth  of work on them annually the tax. is  remitted.

The ��� expenses  of advertising, etc., must not exceed  $2 for each claim, and the purchaser at  a tax sale is allowed 12 per cent interest.'  WITH THE LEGISLATURE.  There have been lively times at Victoria this week. On Tuesday the -estimates were brought down, and. as made  public in aspecial free "extra" of The  Tribune on Tuesday afternoon, *Nelson  is to have a new 'court-house, $40,()i'0  having been set aside for the purpose".  The member for Nelson was also instrumental in getting the government to  allow the tax on crown-granted mineral claims to remain as before at 25  cents per acre.* It was proposed to advance the tax to 50 cents per acre,  which would have been a hardship^ on  prospectors and the holders,of mineral  claims generally. The government also  propose to allow six months m which  to redeem mineral claims after sale for  taxes is made. The member for Nelson  has-an-'amendme,nt-on���the_paper_ex-_  tending the time to twelve months.  The advertised sales of crown-granted  mineral claims have been postpone 1.  The estimated ie venue for the coming vear is $29,0P2 less than the estimate for 1903, and the estimated expenditure is $16,099 in excess of 1903.  $14,000 is allowed Nelson district for  roads, etc., and $2,100 is allowed for the  mining association medial ion committee at Fernie.  In the debate on the finance minister's motion for the second reading of  the assessment bill, to simplify tax collections, tbe premier said a special bill  would he submitted under which the. 2  per cent tax would lie done away with.  On Wednesday Smith Curtis brought  up his resolution afliiininp the desirability of a dissolution and an appeal to  the country al the end of the present,  session. Premier Prior opposed the  motion, and there wa-* a lively afternoon, nearly eveiv member speaking to  the question. Mr. Houston declared  that he was not in the same position as  otherp in the house, who were constantly chfinging allegiance, the member for  Delta included, since he had first followed Mr. Martin, (hen Mr. Dunsmuir,  and was now found as one of the leaders of the opposition. He had given  Mr. Dunsmuir a fair support, but he  had never heen a flopper in the house,  and did not intend to be, even to see a  government kept in power by floppers.  He could not say the government was  had, but he regretted lo see it- dependent in some respects upon help from  enemies���even in the cabinet. Good  "���fovernment could not be so obtained.  He though the great cause of the present discontent in the province was not  so much labor disturbances as unstable  government, and he could only see re  lief through giving the people a chance  to declare themselves, and eo would  vote against the'resolution, although it  went against the grain to vote for it -  since if had been brought forward by  tlie member for Rossland, who lived  politically by- his grand stand plays.  On the division being taken, the vote  resulted in a tie.  Mr. Speaker gave his casting vote  against the resolution, as seeking to  take away a constitutional right of government to advise his honor as to a  dissolution.  The Columbia & Western land grant  is the scandal for the session. A Committee of investigation has been granted  by the house on the demand of Mr.  Oliver. The committee met, but had,  to adjourn owing to Mr. Gore of the 9  lands and works department not .being  able to produce the books and papers  required. The committee meet again  on Monday. The Dunsmuir. govern-,  ment allotted some 900,000 acres ftf'  crown lands in south East Kootenay in  satisfaction of tbe Columbia & "Western's earned subsidy. This .grant was  afterwards cancelled, and the enquiry  relates to these lands, which are very  valuable. Some very interesting developments are expected, and'the finding of the commissioners may result in  the ultimate downfall of the government.           ^ NELSON NEWS NOTES.

SATURDAY, APRIL 18, 1903  The local mental atmosphere is full  of the aftermath of president Estes' admirable lecture given -at the opera  house on Tuesday. His interesting personality and ability to lay before an  audience in an intelligent manner undoubted truths, with which most people  sympathize, must not blind us to the  broader view of the great question of  Capital and Labor than can be obtained  by looking at it through the colored  glasses of a comparatively local issue.  In considering the question of the rights  of Capital and Labor, the factor of the  rights of all should be made applicable.  Henry George sounded this chord when  he shouted: "lam for men,"���not for  " "one"class~"eve"ir~thougir~iF be in the  majority (for minorities have rights)  but for all. The present struggle between the U.B.R.E. and tlie C.P.R.  should not'blind those who may now  bw captivated by the soothing teachings  of an incorrect Socialism to the larger  aspect of the great question obtainable  only by a broad sweep of true justice.  The local issue claims-pur sympathy on  account of the reasonable demands of  the U.B.R.E., and there is no chance  of public opinion changing its attitude  towards the great railway corporation.  They are wise, however, who, while.adhering to this position, do not overlook  the wider issues which it raises on the  burning question of individual and  corporeal rights.  was fortunate this system was adopted  at that time, as through.it Nelson has a  class of residences which are a credit to  it. But the .'circumstances are now  "cTra"nge3y~Qulte~!ctrgc--suuis "have - accumulated through savings, surplus  funds of secret societies, and in. the  hands of individuals who have been  fortunate in their ventures, that are  drawing a much lower . per cent of  interest thanks being paid on the loans.  This interest goes 'to pay munificent  salaries or to keep up gorgeous offices in  Toronto or some othi-r distant city. It  \vould be a better arrangement if those  who pay interest paid it to those Nel-  son'people who have the money. To  get together these small sums now in  the savings banks and elsewhere, to  arrange for the payment of the loans to  foreign companies, and to substitute  them by loans from Nelson funds, is a  job for a budding local Pierpont Morgan to accomplish, and" it is one that  when done would keep more money iii  Nelson, where it is appreciated, and be  much better than sending it to Eastern  Canada, from whence it will be a long  time in coming back.  AVhen delegates from a secret society  attend grand lodge they get a daily  allowance and travelling expenses;  union delegates get union wages and  expenses; clergymen travel on half  rates or passes and are billetted; members of legislature or parliament get  mileage and often more sessional indemnity than they could earn if they  stayed at home, and no deductions are  usually made hy them from the mileage for those parts of the journey on  which passes are used. Teachers pay  their way. They are either more devoted to their duties than the others, or  else are less fortunate.  "-nV  EXAMINATION FOR ASSAYERS FOR  LICENSE TO   PRACTISE   IN  BRITISH COLUMBIA.  Nelson's member has again done yeoman service for the city. As announced  in a special issue of The Tribune on  Tuesday last, he has succeeded in  getting an appropriation of $40,000 for  the erection of a new court house. This  is good news for the people of Nelson,  and, with the possible exception of a  few of tlie mugwumps and soreheads,  the ctedit is being given where it is  due.  - If the time taken by freight from  Vancouver to Nelson is any criterion of  the efficiency of the freight handlers  employed in place of the strikers by the  C.P.R., they would appear to be a sorry  lot. Freight which left Vancouver on  April 3rd is just to hand, and freight for  The Tribune which left on the 0th is  not yefc heard .of. Two weeks from  Vancouver to Nelson   is   pretty slow  work.    The splendid work of the Nelson fire  brigade at the fire on Thursday was-  highly spoken of by the spectators.  Chief Lillie had his men well under  control, and the water was placed  where it would do the most good. The  amateurs on the brigade fought the fire  like veterans, greatly to the detriment  of skin and clothes.  In Nelson there are about 75 or more  loans procured from loan companies on  the monthly payment plan, on* which  from four to six years' payments have  been made. These monthly payments,  except in a few instatices, do not diminish, though a portion of each payment  is credited on repayment of principal,  but continue the same as when the loan  was taken out. When these loans were  obtained the people getting them had  not saved from their salaries or could  not spare from their businesses enough  money to build the kind of houses they  considered suitable to their needs.   It   The_announcement that-no-change-in-  the existing lead duty will be made at  this session  will  be   received   in   this  district with  annoyance bordering on  indignation.   No amount of platitudes  will smooth over in any  way the firm  conviction that the federal  government  values this district in the same ratio as'  one vote bears to the present majority.  It will'rest with  W.  A. Galliher and  the various deputations Bent expressly  to Ottawa to interview the government  to satisfy the people of the  Kootenays  that they have been the victims of unfulfilled  ministerial   promises.      It is  quite clear that the salvation  of the  Slocan and contiguous silver-lead- districts lies in the determined  representation to Ottawa that something will  have to be done to  relieve this branch  of the mining industry.   No apparent  defeat   must   be   considered    for   one  instant by the people of the Kootenays;  the issue is vital to us, and only a little  less so to the whole province.    Failing  recognition direct, some action should  be taken by the legislative assembly  now  in  session.   It is a  matter that  brooks of no delay, and doubtless one  THE C.P.R. WAY.  Frank Rogers, formerly president of  the Fisherman's union, was' shot on  Monday' night la'st about 11 o'clock on  the wharf at Vancouver, dying on Wednesday afternoon;-- The first notice  which Nelson people got of this murder  -wns���in���tho��� Duily��� News of-Wodntssday-  morning, although an account of the  crime should have been sent by the  Associated Press, otherwise the C.P.E.  telegraph department, on .Monday  night. It was a labor-man who was  killed, however, and so the news must  be delayed as long as possible. Worse  than all else, the report is so worded as  to make it appear that Rogers was  killed "in ��� mistake for a man named  Tracey. The account sent read as follows :  ' "  "A man who has business along" the  water front made H| statement today  ���that he had gone about 10 o'clock past  where the shooting came from, and as  he passed there a man .stepped out  from the darkness and asked him where  lie was going. In a moment three or  four men stepped out and he was-asked  if he had seen Tracy. Now, Tracy is  the man who has supplied eangs to  take the place of the strikers along the  water front, and he and Rogers look  very much alike and have, in fact, bi-en  mistaken for each other. There may  be nothing in the coincidence, but it is  a matter that detectives working on the  case have under consideration."  Venom stands out, from almost every  _woj___of_this.accoinit-of-the-liappjBning'r  and the writer of the dispatch has not  hesitated to attempt to cast the odium  of murder on a class who for the time  are its opponents, and on individual  members of that class. How small  were thc grounds for such a foul insinuation is shown bv the sequel���a special  constable of the C.P.R.," Alfred Allen  by name, has since been arrested,  charged with the killing.  TN accordance with section ix of the "Bureau of  -*��� Mines Act," examinations for efficiency in the  practice ot assay ing will be held at Nelson, B.C., on  27th April, 1903, and on such following- days as may  be found necessary.    -'  Entrance for any examination must be made in  writing: to the Secretary of the Hoard of Examiners^  at least seven days before the date set for beginning  of examination, and must be accompanied by the  prescribed fee ($15.)

Dearest Ethel: -I was so glad to get  your letter and to know that you had  arrived safely in dear old Monterey. I  quite eiivey you the weather you must  be enjoying and the' delightful 'environment of the charming Hotel del* Monte  and the "matchless bay. Particularly  is Ellis so, as the1 weather here is in  open rebellion', and save for Easter Sunday we have had no really���warm days  this spring.  I think most of us nre glad,that Lent  is over; things-social have'-been insufferably dull and drove a good many  in despair to the daily afternoon service the rector rather-timidly inaugurated, but which turned out better than  he drea med. Everybody went to church  on Easter day; they had it rather nicely arranged at the altar and we had  that "surplice choir which we have all  been talking about for works. ��� I, for  one, would have liked the whole service, responses and everything, intoned;  it seems to fit in better "where there is a  white-robed choir. Ho^5vej'7J'Jiis_may  -biTtheleavetlihgof-the service all round  ���and you known how much 1 always  liked a good high ritual. *  Taking it all round, I think the gowns  on Sundays were decidedly mild, free  from that ultra gaudiness which has  been characteristic of the past Easter  Siinday morning service., Nellie wore  that dream of a dress she* got in. London last winter at Paquin's; although  not showy for -ityle, it>v���as far ahead of  anything in the church'. I admired  Mrs; Hammer's beautiful lace sollar  she wore over a velvet body. 1 thought  the idea original and decidedly good  taste. 1 had nothing very showy this  year���have to be careful these days,  you know, so I was what I would call  mildly gowned. The church was full as  usual, and the weather being mild we  were not threatened with suffocation.  We were no sooner ont of Lent ttian  we flew to the theatre.' Mrs. Davis put  on a double bill, "Barbara" and "Jane,"  which I think was a mistake, as.the  play lasted till close on to midnight.  They waited at first for the church  meeting to finish, which I thonght a  trifle unfair to the audience, particularly as the performance was in aid of  the boat club and everyone's motley  was acceptable. "Barbara" was the  lever du ride au, rather a nice little  one-act play by Pinero. Mrs. Davis  was very natural in the title role, and  Ivy Johnson did remarkably well as  Lillie; the latter seemed quite at home  on the stage. Mr. Stewart, as Cecil,  gave us some good acting, and so did  Alleyne Wright, as Finnicurn.  . Jane was exceedingly well played by  Mrs. W. Davis. That wretched old  _Kershaw, not knowing his part in spite  of the audible yelling of the prompter,  rather spoiled it in the latter part.   Of  course, Oecil,-aa Tipson, was immense,  and lie andjMrs. J.avis, as 'Jane, kept  up the fun. The idea of tlie play is  intensely funny; trying to make it appear to an old uncle,Jwho is nupporting  a spend thrift, nephew, that the nephew  is married, and to put up a job on the  old man is the plot. Jane, the housemaid, is made to do duty in consideration of s'alue received from the nephew,  Charley Shack leton', which young  Blakemore played rather well���far better than his first attempt in "Caste,"  when you were here. Mrs. C. Cummins  amused the'c'rowd -immensely as Mrs.  Ohadwick. ���,That imp, .Reggie Cummins,-  was quite good; Mrs. M. S. Davys, as  Mrs. Pixton. was .natural; Alleyne  Wright, as Pixton, had not enough to do,  while, as Lucy Norton, Ivy Johnstone  did not have scope to show her latent-  artistic powers as well as in "Barbara."  Still, we had-a good time, and personally tender thanks to all who took part  in the plays for an evening's amusement.'-  I am afraid there is a risk of there  being no regatta this year. These dreadful niei^j*^'e^fa^njnitiKer_th_e_Domin^  ion Day celebration, with the result  ���that the business people*of the town are  against having anything watery on  July 1st and 2nd, and there is open war  between them and the boat "club. I  told Harold that it was a mistake to  antagonize*" those who have patronized  the club liberally, but he is so obstinate. We will have to hope for the  best, but it will be a great disappointment should it fall through for want of  funds, particularly as so many of lis  are going across the water this summer. /  There are one or two dances in sight,  but they- have not aroused any great  interest. People are more attached to  the latest,kind of fly than a dance," and  hats trimmed with flieR are in evidence.  You should see Edith in that thing she  calls a fishing suit.. It's killing; bought  it last year, she says, in Oxford street;  it looks as if it came from City Road.  It's a sort of a cross between a man's  khaki suiting and an ordinary green  cottonade; very short skirt which will  he talked about, and a hat in straw as  flat as a buckwheat cake. She is gone  on it, and it's hopeless to  remonstrate.  Now, mind yon write, and he careful  of that piazza, especially on moonlight  nights with soft music around; there  are many/dreamy paths m the grounds  and a veritable maze, if I remember  aright.

"To TJiee whose temple is all space,
W'liobe altar, earth, seas, skies,
One chorus let all being raise;
All Nature's inceiif>e rise."
Rarely has Easter dawned in Nelson
with brighter ray than on Sunday lust:
As though to make amends for much
absence of late and join in the festival,
the sun flooded the valley with its joyous beams from dawn till eve. There
was, however, a slightly chilly feeling
in the air hardly appropriate for April.
Many people probably mentally withstood this, fey way of reflection on that
hot wave we may anticipate next
month, when yesterday will be looked
back upon as one of ideal climatic conditions. .    * -
The stimulus given to religiouB exercises during Lent by the English and
Roman Catholic churches reaches the
climax .on Easter day and is-signalled
by an outburst-of congregational service. In the case of St. Saviourjs, more
than usual interest was attached to the
service this year on accoiinb of their
in* press iv en ess being rendered nnusu-
j1Jly-j1._t.rj1cU.v0—by—the- introduction of-
fche boy chorister and the surpliced
choir. In these days of wide diversity
of opinion within the church 0x1 the
question of ritual, any innovation .of
this kind is watched -with great interest, there being many who regard any
enlargement of the ritual as a stepping
stone to high church practices, ritualism, and the ungrounded fear—a remnant of tlie reformation—Rome.   '
No impartial observer, however, could
by any chance have seen in the impressive services at this church on
Sunday anything calculated to disturb
the peacepf mind of the most sensitive
low churcliman. It would seein yultra
fussy for anyone, let alone a member of
the church, to take exception to the
inspiring choral service, which gives to
the ritual and familiar hymns-a value
far beyond the oiost monotone service
ever heard. The choirmaster and
organist, is tcT be • congratulated on
the success attending the arduous
work incidental to the introduction of
the boy chorister and processional.   -
The new seating arrangement in the
choir perm its. of better harmony, and
the general appearance of the aisle and
chancel was brightened on this- occasion by a liberal display of lilies. _The
morning-service-includedrTe Deum,
Simper in E flat; Anthem, "He is
Risen," Simper, and Communion service "Dykes iu F." In th---evening the
anthem, "Why Seek Ye the Living?''
was given, and at bothfservices appropriate voluntaries were introduced.
The rector preached excellent sermons
at both services.
At the Roman Catholic church of
St. Mary the Immaculate there was a
large congregation at high mass. This
church is happily located and catches
the fullness ot the morning sun. The
interior shone with a brightness in
keeping with-the great day and the
theme, which was well set forth by
Father Altorf in his discourse. Following this came the celebration of the
mass, that impressive service on which
the sun never sets, and which has given
to the great church her immense vitality.. The rich' Gregorian music was
rendered, in a manner that no scoffer
could have been entirely indifferent to
and no worshipper but better from its
uplifting influences.
At the other churches the festival
was recognized by way of appropriate
music and sermons. The Presbyterian
and Congregational churches particularly gave more prominence than usual
to the day, a fact which is interesting
to note in these days of shifting religious thought and opinion on ritual
among the dissenting churches.
Altogether, theie are no indications,
judging^ hy the display of interest in
the church services last Sunday, that
the religious spirit in pur midst shows
any signs of incipient decay. Rather is
it that with the years are the pressing
problems of life seeking more and more
the solution that the highest religion
alone can give. F. W. P.
