At the meeting of the Citizens'
Association on Tuesday evening, the
secretary was instructed to communicate with Harry Wright, M. P. P. and
also with Gold Commissioner Renwiuk
setting forth the urgent necessity for
prompt action in the matter of the
Ymir bridge. The wretched old pile
of wood will assuredly be carried away
with the floods of this spring, unless
something is done to repair it before
the freshets start. For yearn past the
bridge has been patched and repaired
—sufficient work only being done to
keep it in position. A sum of 12,000
has been appropriated for a new bridge,
and an effort is being made to have
this amount expended at once, or to
have the old pile again repiired so
that it will stand until the money is
available. If communication between
the mines at the other side of tho river
and the railway be cut off, even tern
porarily, the loss to the camp would
indeed be serious.
Thomas Flynn, a pioneer prospector

ftninjg hie attention to the Centre Star
group «f three claims which is located
one »nd a half miles from Ymir, The
Centre Star, he declares, is a splendid
free milling proposition. The ledgo is
a very large one, being 6Û feet wide
and carrying free milling gold oro that
careful sampling reveals will average
$12 to the ton. Tho.values are in
the oxides whioli corn'«* the gold. On
this group he has a tunnel in 110 feet
and the showing of or« is very large.
Besides lie has shafts, and has stripped
tho lodge in many places to show its
strength and continuity. "It is in my
opinion,'' said Mr. Flynn, "ono of the
best free milling propositions in the
Ymir district.'' Mr. Flynn further
states that he and his associates have
secured control of the Old Monarch
group near Hall's Siding. This property, hu says, is also one of merit.««
Nelson Daily News,
The action of tho lay members of
the executive board of the Anglican
diocese of Kootenay in sending in
their resignations to Bishop Dart, over
his lordship's recent appointment of a
resident archdeacon, leave diocean
affairs in a ackward predicament. The
board consists of five clergy mon, seven
laymen« and tho bishop, and the
presence of a proportion of tho lay
lepresuntativus is nccossary p)t a mooting to form a quorum. At present a
■ hiadli ok is inivit ibis until the synod
is culled together nnd new lay members, if strch can bo found willing to
act under tho circumstances—are elected to All the places <** the seven who
have now resigned. No stipends can
he paid and the temporal aftairs of the
newly formed diocese are at a stand«
still. It is not known what action
Bishop Dart will take. The seven lay
member» who havo resigned are all
représentative mon of high standing
arid have* been mainly instrumental in
building up the Anglican church' in
the Kootenay « and in securing the
formation of the new diocese. It is
possible that in view of the emphatic
protest made' that tho bishop may reconsider his recent appointment.—Not

CITIZENS'   ASSOCIATION.
IMPROVED FIRE PROTECTION
PROVIDED FOR
DANGEROUS   CONDITION   OF
THE YMIR BRIDGE.
The monthly meeting of the Ymir
Citizens' Association was held on Tues
day, J. W. Ross, presiding.
Secretary Doll Smith read a letter
from Mr. H. B. Smith, C. E, acknowledging receipt of plan submitted for
the Ymir cemetery, and offering same
to tho association for 8Ö0. The
writer explained that to plot the
ground according to his drawing would
cost hundreds of dollars.
The plan was much admired, but it
was considered too elaborate and expensive at the present stage.
A lengthy communication was read
from the Provincial Mining Association, reviewing tho work of the past
year, end setting forth that the next
meeting would bo held in Victoria
during the week beginning Feb. 22nd.
The communication was ordered
filed.
The chairman nulled attention to the
government appropriation of $2000
for the building of the bridge at Ymir.
He desired that steps be taken to have
the bridi/o built before the spring
freshets set in.
Mr. C. Archihold —Aro you aware
that you cannot gut that money until
June ?
Chairman—! am not. Tlio govern
ment havo money on hand. They
borrowed it, and need not wojt to col -
lect their takes in such a u-iso as this.,
Other years they had to wait until
they got the money in. Now thoy
have it.
Mr. Newett— Except something be
done at once, the bridge w.iil be carried
away as sonn as the water rises. If il
were swept away beforo Juno thoy
would have to build it, and thoy might
as we'l do it now,
Several members aore testimony to
thu dangerous condition of the bridge
and it was ultimately decided to in
struct tho secretary to communicate
with Harry Wright, the local member,
and also witli Gold Commissioner Ren
wick, calling attention to tho urgent
necessity for immediatu action.
Other necessary works in the immediate district were discussed, and
it was divided to have the government
engineer interviewed when ho visits
the camp.
A sum of 950 was handed over to
tho president of the Waterworks Co,,
being the rental of the public hydrants
for thu year 1903. Tho amount had
been raised by public subscription.
Mr. W. M. Coffey, as chief of the
local fire brigade, called astcntion lo
danger that existed in,the chief business block, between Fir and Willow
Streets, by reason of there being no
separating parution between the individual buildings in lift; basement.
Ho suggested that the owners be called
upon to remedy this defect. Some of
them had already built the partitions
-•but not all In case of a lire from
underneath the flames would be likely
to sproad as things wero at present.
The chairman undertook to sc» that
the owners were communicated with.
Mr, Coffey also called1 attention to
the danger of »flowing stove pipes to
project over woislen buildings,
Dr. Duncan—What aro the, firo
wardens doinlf"
Mr. Coffey particularized as very
dan»erous the stovo pipes from the
Ross House anil.Ymir Hotel kitchen».
It was decided lo cull upon the firewardens to s*o their duty,
(John Master.«on,. proprietor of tlio
Ymir House, complained of, is one oi
the firewardens )
Dr. Duncan suggested that a lighter
hose reel be procured. The one at pic-
sent in use was too heavy for service
with any deptli of snow on the ground.
A long discussion ensued on the
subject, and resulted in tho fire chief
being authorized to secure a toboggon,
sled, or other means of conveying the
lose expiditiously to the scene of a fire.
The chief was also authorized to price
a light-running reel for general use
Routine business having been disposed of the meeting adjourned.
MASQUERADE BALL
YMIRITES TURN  OUT IN  DISGUISE.
A COSMOPOLITAN CROWD  AT
UNION  HALL.
The masquerade ball announced for
the 31st December last, and which
was postponed owing to non-arrival of
costumes until Thursday evening, prov.
ed as anticipated a big success. About
sixty couples in gay costume or behind
masks, tripped tlio light frantastio
over a well waxed lloor and to good
music, in the presence of a big gathering of amusod spectators. The characters assumed were as varied as those
of tho personetors That saintly
freighter, Andy Burgess, appeared as
Mephistophelcs but unacquainted as ho
is with tho ctiquntto of the Uwer regions, ho forgot tho typical tail and
fork, and the judges (who know more
of Dante's Tnferno than does Andy or
very many more) disqualified him
on these grounds. D, French also
played tho satanic mir. There »iij,
nn fault tn find with his get up, hut
tho judges decreed that ho was Mot
devil enough to their taste, and he was
metaphorically consigned to the
regions over which his protego is said
to reign. There were several Spanish
courtiers in evidence, with Russian
princes, Chinamen and gentlemen of
the periisl galore. A Norman gentle
men from Bruce County, Ont., carried
off the prizo for the best sustained
character- curiously enough that of
Uncle S«m. Tho Norman was
veiy comical. The la/lies' prizo was
awarded to Miss Nellie Kcefe, as Topsy
—a character made famous by I tunic
lieecliet Stowe, in Uncle Tom's Cabin.
Joo Leahy did gotal service as the Jolly
Sailor Boy, but when one of the judges
suggested "to reef the top gallant,
splice the jib, set the Ininnaker and
throw the main deck overboard," Joe
«ailed out " Who, there, Howdy,
which Was a dead give away Bert
McS/nil, as the cow puncher, did much
to popularize Topsy, although theni
were other cow'boys knocking around,
and a Spanish Cow girl too (Mi«s

combinations during the, evening, such
as wheri the two little girls tn blue

LOCAL LEGISLATURE.
A SQUABBLE OVER THE ESTI«
MATES.
HOUSTON'S    ANNIMOSITY   TO
THE FORE
On Wednesday while the estimated
were under discussion, one of those
lisplays of temper on the part of members, unhappily not an unfamiliar
scene in the Provincial Legislature,
was indulged in.
John Houston let loose his tongue
and temper, denouncing the government lie was elected to support, and
with that modesty peculiar to himself,
declared that he was the only Liberal«
Conservative in the house. He closed
his harrangue with the declarition
that the record of the MoBride
government had dispelled any hope of
Liberal-Conservative success in the
province,
W. R. Ross, who followed, declared
that hu would rather support the soci.
alist party as represented in the present house than the liberal-conservative par y as represented by John
Houston. The latter, he declared,
was too anxious toprcdtmiiiiatc,and hu
urged that ho should not be permitted
to retain his post as chairman of tho
liberal-conservative party. He also
contended that tho result of tho
mayoralty election in Nelson, in which
Houston'* candidate was defeated
«bowed that sentiment there now was
not hostile tn the McBlitlo govern«
ment.
A vote was then taken on the
amendment of the loader of thu opposition to tho motion to go into supply
censuring the government for it« foil,-
ure to amend the statutu in respect to
taxation of mines. It was lost on a
rjarty division of 14 to 10, the socialist*
and labor representative« voting with
the government,
The house then went into committee
of supply,
Then came protest« from tho oppm-
oion that their respective districts had
not received tho appropriations to
which tlleV were entitled. If they all
got what they demanded, another bitf
loan would bo necessary.
Tho premier explained th« lln itieial
strait* in which the government found
itself, but without effect. Thu chief
howl was on appropriation«.
On Thursday the house considered
tl«u report of tho committee appointed
to Investigate; the "Government
House scandal," about which a roai'
has been madi'i The coinmitfe tabled

Wonderful   Growth   of  the   Hail   Order   Business   of  The  Robert  .Simpson
Company, Limited, Toronto.
SOME INTERE5TINQ DETAILS OF THE BIO TORONTO STORE.
Toronto has long b«en noted as the
c|ty of line stores. With her miles of

unequalled street cur service and her
(treat department stores, sutth nn that
n' the ltoliert Simpson Company, her
eltlrens P"«i"est> advantages few other
allies oan boast.
The firm, cil Mr. Simpson's death.
In 1897, became a limited company,
anil no modern phenomeaon of the
business - world, so far as Toronto is
conceiiied, hns occasioned more remark than the prrowth of the business
of the Koberi Simpson Company!
Large though the building Is and added to from time to time as It has been,
The ltoliert IMmpnon Company building stands In the most prominent position In .he city, vis., Ihe sunt h west

price for which a store oan sell It.
Experienced, enterprising "buyers"
are scouring the world nearly six
months of tho year Becurlng Ihe most
sultnble merchandise where It Is produced best and cheapest. Quantity Is
nn drawback. The Ulgfftr quantity
bought, the lower'the price. If the
goods are right" the Itobcrt Simpson
Company cannot take too much of
them.       (
The bii...iifss now knowti as the Robert Blmpson Company Limited, was
established nway back In 1873, by the
late Mr. Hoben Simpson. An unequal*
led Judge of dross goods and silks, nls
store soon acquired a reputation for
dress fabrics second tn none In Cnn-
nda, and thnt reputation has been one
of the store's most valued and most
carefully trensured assets ever s>ice.
Soon Tonge Street rivalled King Street
In Its attrnotlvepess for tho ladles of
Toronto, and when nfter tho great fire
In 18nri. the now building was erected.

At the meeting of the Citizens'
Association on Tuesday evening, the
secretary was instructed to communicate with Harry Wright, M. P, P. and
also with Gold Commissioner Renwick
setting forth the urgent necessity for
prompt action in the matter of the
Ymir bridge. The wretched old pile
of wood will assuredly be carried away
with tho floods of this spring, unless
something is done to repair it before
the freshets start. For yenrs past the
bridge has been patched and repaired
—suflicient work only being done to
keop it in position. A sum of $2,000
has been appropriated for a new bridge,
and an effort is being made to have
this amount expended at once, or to
huvo the old pile again repiired so
that it will stand until the money is
available. If communication between
the mines at the other side of tho river
and the railway be cut off, evon tein
porarily, the loss to the camp would
indeed be serious.
Thomas Flynn, a pioneer prospector
and miner, is a guest at tho Madden.
During his residence in this section he
has staked a number of valuable prospects and among these are the Dundee

tlniijg his attention to the Centre Star
group nf three claims whioh is located
one and a half miles from Ymir, The
Centre Star, be declares, is a splendid
free milling proposition. The ledgo is
a vory large one, being 69 feet wide
and carrying free milling gold ore tha1
careful sampling reveals will average
,512 to the ton. Tho.values are in
the oxides whioh carries) the gold. On
this group he has a tunnel in 110 feet
and the showing of ore is very large.
Besides he has shafts, and has stripped
tho ledge in many places to show its
strength and continuity. "It is in my
opinion," said Mr. Flynn, "ono of ihe
hest free milling propositions in the
Ymir district.'' Mr. Flynn further
states that he and his associates have
secured centrol of the Old Monarch
group near Hall's Killing. This property, ho says, is also one of merit.««

CITIZENS'   ASSOCIATION.
IMPROVED FIRE PROTECTION
PROVIDED FOR
DANGEROUS   CONDITION    OF
THE YMIR BRIDGE.
The monthly meeting of the Ymir
Citizens' Association was held on Tues
day, J. W. Ross, presiding.
Secretary Dell Smith read a letter
from Mr. H. B. Smith, C. E, acknowledging receipt of plan submitted for
the Ymir cemetery, and offering same
to tho association for $00. The
writer explained that to plot the
ground according to his drawing would
cost hundreds of dollars.
The plan was much admired, but it
was considered too elaborate and expensive at tho present stage.
A lengthy communication was read
from the Provincial Mining Associa«
tion, reviewing tho work of tho past
year, end setting forth that the next
meeting would bts held in Victoria
during the week beginning Feb. 22nd.
Tho communication was ordered
filed.
The chairman oalled attention to the
government appropriation of 82000
for the building of the bridge at Ymir.
He desired that steps be taken to have
the bridge built before the spring
freshets set in.
Mr. C. Archibold —Are you aware
that you cannot get that money until
June!
Chairman—I mn not. Tlio govern
ment have money on hand. They
borroweel it, and need not wait to collect their taxes in such a ciso as this..
Other years they had to wait until
they got the money in. Now they
have it.
Mr, Ncwett— Except something be
done at once, the bridge w.iil be carried
away as soon as the water rises. If it
woro swept away lieforo Juno they
would havo to build it, and they might
as well do it now.
Several members Sore testimony to
the dangerous condition of tho bridge
and it was ultimate!/ decided to in
struct the secretary to communicate
with Harry Wright, the local member,
and also with Gold Commissioner Ron
wiek, calling attention to tho urgent
necessity for immediate action.
Other necessary works in the immediate district were discussed, and
it wie, ele-ided to have the government
engineer interviewed when ho visits
llie camp.
A sum of *50 was handed over to
tho president of th« Waterworks Co,,
being the rental of the public hydrants
for ihe year 1903, Tin-amount had
been raised by (public subscription,
Mr. W. M. Coffey, as chief" of the
local ftre brigade, culled asteution to
danger that existed in the chief business block, between Fir and Willow
Streets, by reason of there being no
separating partition between the In*
dividual buildings m life basement.
He suggested that the owners be called
upon to remedy this defect. Some of
them had already built tho partitions
-«but not all In case of a Uro from
underneath the Harnes would be likoly
to spread as things wero at present.
The chairman undertook to sc» that
the owners wero communicated with.
Mr, Coffey also culled1 attention to
the danger of aflowjiig stove pipes to
project over wooden buildings.
Dr. Duncan—What aro thri. fire
wardens doling
Mr. Coffey particularized as very
dangerous the stove pipes from tho
Ross House anil .Ymir Hotel kitchen».
It was decided 1er call upon the firewardens lei <*o their duty.
(John Miistersun, proprietor of tho
Y mir House, complained «if, Is ono of"
the firewardens )
Dr. Duncan suggested that a lighter
hose reel be procured. The one at present in use was too heavy for service
with any depth of snow on the ground,
A long discussion ensued on the
subject, and resulted in tho fire chief
being authorized to secure a toboggon,
sled, or other means of conveying the
hose expiditiously to the scene of a fire.
The chief was also authorized to price
a light-running reel for general use
Routine business having been disposed of the meeting adjourned.

HOUSTON'S    ANNIMOSITY   TO
THE FORE
The masquerade ball announced for
the 31st December last, and which
was postponed owing to non-arrival of
costumer, until Thursday evening, proved us anticipated a big success. About
sixty couples in gay costume or behind
masks, tripped the light frnntnstiu
over a well waxed (loor and to good
music, in the prosenco of a big gathering of amused spectators. The characters assumed were as varied as those
of thei persone.tors That saintly
freighter, Andy Burgess, appeared as
Mephistophelcs but nnacquaint id as he
is with tho etiquotto of the l«wer regions, ho forgot the typical tail nnd
fork, and the judges (who know more
of Dante's Tnferno than does Andy or
very many more) disqualified him
on theso grounds. D. French also
played the eatanlo rule. There wn^
no fadlt to find with his get up, but
the judges decreed that ho was tint
devil enough to their taste, and he was
metaphorically consigned to tho
regions over which his protege is said
to reign. There were several Spanish
courtiers in evidence, with Russian
princes, Chinamen and gentlemen of
the period galore. A Norman gentlemen from Bruce County, Out., carried
off the prizo for the best sustained
character- curiously enough that of
Unolo Sam. Tho Norman was
very oomical. The Indies' prizo was
awarded to Miss Nellie Kcefe, as Topsy
—a character made famous by Harriet
Beocher Stowe, in Uncle Tom's Cabin.
Joo Leahy did good servico as the .Tolly
Sailor Boy, but when one of the judges
suggested "to rent the top gal'ant,
splice the jib, net the Iriinnake-r and
throw the main deck overboard," Joe
ealled out " Who, there, Howdy,1'

On Wednesday while the estimates
were under discussion, one of those
displays of temper on the part of members, unhappily not an unfamiliar
scene in tho Provincial Legislature,
was indulged in.
John Houston let loose his tongue
and temper, denouncing the government he was elected to support, and
with that modesty peculiar to himself,
declared I hat ho was the only Liberal.
Conservative in this house. He closed
his harrangue with the declaration
that the record of tho McBride
government had dispelled any hope of
Liberal-Conservalive success in the
province.
W. R. Ross, who followed, declared
that he would rulhor support the soci«
alist party as represented in the present house than the liberal-conservative pin-y as represented by John
Houston. The latter, he declared,
was too anxious to prfldom!nuto,and ho
urged that he should not be permitted
to retain Ilia post as chairman of tho
liberal-conservative party. He also
contended that the result of tho
mayoralty election in Nelson, in which
Houston's candidate was defeated
showed that sentiment there now was
not hostile to tho MpBt'itlo govern«
menf.
A vote was then taken oti tho
amendment of the hinder of tins opposition to the motion to go into supply
censuring the government for its failure to amend the statute in respOQt to
taxation of mines. It was lost on a
darty division of 11 to 10, the socialists
and labor representatives voting with
the government.
The house then went iiltoconimitte«
of supply,
Then «am« protests from th« oppos-
cion that their respective districts hid
not received the appropriations to
which they woro entitled. If thoy all
got what they demanded, another big
loan would bo necessary.
Tho premier explained th» llnHiatal
straits in which the government found
itself, hut without effect. The chief
howl was on appropriations.
On Thursday this house considered
this report of tho committee appointed
to Investigate? the " Government
House scandal," ahoilt which a roai'
has been made, The cuniiiiitfe tabled
an uiunliiilims p'port to the effect that
from the (Hitlerite adduced tlli'f find
there is no foundation for any charges
against lh(! government, and lilso 1 lint
the act has bei'n enforced by the'
ollicials as well as possible Under th«
circifiiistiinces. All tho members of
this cOmniitlne consisting of Messrs,
llowser, Henderson, I'Yilser, Davidson
and Dnfry, signed tht! document.
Curadir Fannin is in very ill health
and tdo government has placed in tin'
estimates a modest sunf providing for'
his retirement,
One of tho opposition meiiilWrs took
exception to llfls on pHiiefipf«, but his
collengäi's on tun Aairfe side of th«'
bourns joined band« with the govern«
ment members in advocating this

V» Piovinciid Mining Association
of British Columbia will take place in
Victoria during the week commencing
Monday, 22nd February, and it
promises to be one of the most influential gatherings ever held in the
mining interests of the province.
Nearly twelve months ago tho association started on its career of usefulness
and oven within this s'.ort period has
accomplished much Through its in*
lluenco the right of redemption of
miner il lands sold for taxes lias been
established, and a provision has been
inserted in the act enabling the owner
of a, group of crown granted mineral
claims to perform a!l requisite work,
upon any one of them. It was also
chiefly instrumental in settling the
Par llie strike, which threatened to
close up all tho mines of thu Kooteuays'.
When th« Provincial Alining Association, which is an absolute1)' non
partisan o"ganiz,ition, was being
established a year ago, Ymir was in vit
ed lo join in the good work, and a
public meeting was called for tho pur
pose of forming a local branch But
the meeting listened to the forebodings of «vil for the " working man " m»
j icttircd by Al. Parr anil Paddy Daly
and no brunch was formed in this
camp, although t>v<try other community
iu the province lent a willing helping
hand to make tho organization the
sucuess it has proved. However, it is
not to late too repair the damage done
the milling interests in this camp a
vear ago. Another opportunity is af-
forded of joining the parent organisai«
tinii, and w« hope it will bo taken ad
vantage of A circular just issued by
tho association says :
" We occupy a far stronger postlion
loday than »e did at the first curiven
tiou. VVe I'.ow have the results of
nearly a year's délibérations, by those
most competent to advise on matters
eflboting th« mining industry; and if
is Impossible to believe thai any government will persist in turning a deaf
ear to suggestions so framed. Mining
is the paramount industry of our pn

coal mining industries stand by them

Mist mineral itwiiirnes of our province
is of vital, never-ending importance)
nnd should be eiicoiiriigcd by eii'ery
patriotic reaident, Every additional

oilier metal or mineral having a corn«

Kor (he election of delegates, the pro«
will he the sum« as last year,
delegate appointed thereat for every
twenty members or fraction of twenty
members. Where branches have not
yet been formed, the procedure is to
call a public meeting for the purpose
of organizing such a body ; elect a
president, vice'president, ■ secretary,
treasurer, executive and other necessary committees for u, period of one
year.''
A KEPoitT comes from .Montreal as
to the fight between the Silver-Lead
Miners' Association of British Columbia and the C. P. R., in which tho
miners' association is trying to force
the railway to cut off the increase in
the rates on lead. The contention
made by tho association is that the
railway acted in bad faith when it increased the rates on lead. At the time
the convention was held, at which
it was decided tousk the government
for a bounty on lead, the C. P. It. who
own the smelter at Trail, through W,
H. Aldridge, the general manager of
the works, announced that if Ihe boun
ty was granted there would not be any
increase at the smelter. Since the
bounty was granted the price of lead
throughout the world has increased a
couple of cents a pound, and both factors contributed towards enabling the
mining companies to make a fair profit. The C. P. R.-seeing this and being
unable to increase the prices at the
smelter, advanced tho rates on the
lead, both when it was being brought
to the smelter and when it was being
forwarded to ihe market. The asso
ciation claims that the advance in rates
on the road is practically the same
thing as an advance at the smelter,
and should not hayo been made It is
hard that a railway company should
be placed in a position to counteract
the effects of what was considered a
benefit conferred on a very important
industry. A bonus was granted by
the government to encourage the min
ing mid manufacture of silver lead,
und tlio railway and smelter company,
now ones concern, steps in and show
a détermination to appropriate tho
bonus. If there is to bo open rebellion in this country it is safe to say
that trip arrogance of tho C. P. R. will
he the primary cause,
he idle. Labor cannot find work un
less there are factories, mines or farms j
where its work i.s needed. Capital |
would be uselessly employed in build-
ing factories, opening up mines or lay-
ing out farms unless it could secure the
labor with which to do the needed
work' Antagonism of labor towards
capital that is employed in honest enterprise, which affords an opportunity
for men to earn an honest living, is absolutely wrong Any antagonism of
capital towards the labor it employs
and which it needs is also absolutely
wrong. These two units, labor and
capital, atevso wrapped together, and
so involved svith ono another, that they
must work together, and in harmony,
in order to acquire mutual success.

OF
Tub way of the transgressor is hard.
For somo years the name of Whittaker
Wright acted as a magnet, attracting
capital and confidence to every project
he touched. Ho was a man of wonderful ab.lity along certain lines, but
his ability was misapplied, and while he
enriched himself hé impoverished
thousands. The London it Globe
Financial Corporation was his greatest achievement — from his own
point. It was conceived in fraud
and in fiaud it matured. When
the bubble burst, and Wright was
shown to be wrong, the great stock
promoter fled from the scene of
his activities and sought refuge
in the United States. But the
stern' arm of British justice
reached across the Atlantic, and
brought the offender back a prisoner. He wns given a fair trial, but
no favor ; was convicted and sentenced to seven years' imprisonment.
Within an hour after sentence was
pussed, Whittaker Wright was a
corpse, and with every reason to believe
that he took his own life. The
ways of the transgressor are hard.
EVERY DESCRIPTION
AT THE
MIRROR OFFICE
At thu last meeting of tho Citizens'
Association the subject of fire protection was very fully discussed and steps
taken to secure a greater degree of
safety. Tint chief of the local fire
brigade W M. Coffey, called attention
to tlio great danger of the block of
buildings from Fir to Willow streets
should a fir« get a start in any of them.
In most of these buildings there is a
vecant spaco between the first floor
and the* ground which would afford
draft sufficient to fan thu flames and
spread destruction. The chief suggests
that each building b« separated by
piiititioti or otherwise underneath.
Already some of the occupants ore
adopting the suggestion, and the
rest will no doubt comply, if only for
their own protection. It was also silg
gestcd that the présent hos« reel Is too
heavy for quIOK work during the
winter months, when the snow is deep
on the ground, and the chief was
authorized to procure a tolxiggan Med
or other appliance suited for travelling
over the snow with the necessary hose
and fire appliances Attention was,
also called to the danger of allowing
stove pipe.« in contact with wood, as
is the case in several districts, Fire
protection is most important for a
young town such as Ymir, and tho
Citizens' Association is doing a good
work in providing for it.
EVBRV effort is now being made, as
it hns always been inado in the past,
to create a conflict between labor and
capital, says tho American Economist,
Those who agitate such ideas can
generally bo found among men who do
not care themselves to work, but who
prefer to go around and create dissensions and trouble where noun had
previously existed. Such men lire

AN  ATTEMPT AT OSTRACISM.
fci an article which he wrote on
trusta some time ago, President Had-
lev, of Yale university, advocated so»
eial ostracism as the best way to restrain capitalists. It is well known
that social ostracism is the punishment
for the failure of a man to pay a gambling debt which could not bo collected
in a court of law, but whether this in*
lluence is properly exerted in cases of
the kind may bp open to question. A
purpose, equally debateable is about
to bo aimed at by a number of Roman
Catholic women in New York who
have formed themselves into a society
which will endeavor to quench the social ambitions öf divorced women. The
wearing of decollete gowns, playing
cards for money and a few other of
the besetting sins of smart society are
to be attacked by this society, which
will be known as the Filiue Pidei. The
m ist important of the club's rules pro
v.dos that "no member shall recognize
siciallyor any other way any divorcee.
She shall not accept invitations from
sieh nor extend her hospitality to those
having violated according to tho dogma
of our Church, the marriage tie." The
birth of this society need excite no
.surprise, when on« consider« the unwavering oppositinon of the Roman
Catholic Church to divorce and the
growth of the practice in this United
States. This fuse was ready for the
fire and the kindling spark was supplied when n few weeks ago, iu Now
York woman, a Roman Catbulic, was
remarried two hours after she hud
been granted a divorce. Such a brazen
proceeding, on thu face of it, would excite no less indignation among Protestants than among Catholics. Iu at,
tempting to bring divorced women into disrepute the society is not essaying something that has novel- been
tried ootoro. It aims at a reversion
to the day:1 nf a quarter of a century
or so ago, when a divorcee was a "his«
s',11'^ and a byword " Ot lato years this
opproblutll lias largely disappeared.
The facility with which divorce may be
obtained in some St,.ins is responsible
for this and it wouldsoem more iniion-
able to correct the lax divorce law
h.sfure applying social force in tho way
the society contemplates. Then, di
vorwies, conspicuous by their isolation
will be in the way to acquire ostracism without leagues being formed to
thrust it on them. Should the Filiue
Fi lei continue the crusade whioh they
have begun without the support of the
law, there is a strong probability that
public opinion will incline toward the
divorced woman, who may be regarded
as tho object of a blind persecution
Thus would the society defeat its own
«lids. Even should this calculation
prove' amiss, it is difficult to see that
the organization will succeed in its
main purpose The leaders of the
very "swellost" of New York society
have been divorced and remarried.
These the Filiue Fidei «an hardly hope
to dethrone. In the faco nf tho in
lluence which th« Holmonts und th«
Vaudorbilts can exert, the power of
thu now organization seems limited,
indeed, —Mail and '{inpirti.
THE IRIQUOIS  ACCIDENT.
Iu coping with the dilticulties precipitated by the Triquois theater disaster, the authorities of Chicago have
acted more like men in a panic than
like responsible public olliuers, says
I'ublic. They remind one of the care,
less servant whose unaccustomed dili
guiico becomes obstructively officious
after his indolence has involved his
master in trouble. Following a long
course of criminal negligence, these
authorities, in their panic over the
Inquois holocaust, suddenly closed al'
tho theaters in Chicago, At no
.1 into in years would every theater,
even the most dangerous, have been so
safe Hut, injtead of requiring them
to adopt means of safety as the
alternative of being closed, tho mayor
closed them peremptorily—not because'
they had become more dangerous than
befelre, but because he was " tired " of

of people were turned out of employment iu tho dead of winter and with,
out notice. The mayor was panic
stricken. Then the city council also
gave way to panic as it framed n new
safety ordinance. This ordinance,
passed on the 18th, is so drastic that
in many useless details it would not be
observed and cannot be enforced after
the general feeling of fear has passed
away. Then the whole thing will be
forgotten. From neglecting the. useless details it will be an easy step to
neglecting others ; and by easy stages
we shall return to the old conditions,
to be again amused' by another preventable disaster. Some idea of the
doll-like intelligence with which this
ordinance has been formulated may be
derived from its requirements as to
exits. The word " exit " must not be
used, ' least theater goers might not
understand its meaning." A luminous
phrase takes .its place—"This way
out." For greater se-urity megaphonic ] Office
phonographs should bo required at j
every exit, adjusted like automatioi
sprinklers lo go off at a certain tern- j
peinture witli repetitions of the words
" This way oijt " ; for theater goers
who can't learn the meaning of "exit"

Tho Mountain Ijumbni' Mauufao

on Tuesday afternoon and ovouillg and
discussed important matters of trad«
development and expansion. Th" chief
features of public interest iu connection with this session was with respect
to the crusade already inaugurated for
the further protection of tlio western
Canadian product from American competition, in which resDOct cogent facts
and figures were presented. It wns
demonstrated that while British Columbia draws its chief supplies of beef,
horses etc., from thu territorial ranches
these products enjoy a protoction that
is not reciprocal so far as tho lumbermen are concerned, thu rough lumber
of tho states seeking tiie prairie markets at an advantage rallier than
otherwise. The llritish Columbia
manufacturers have practically made
no perceptible ndvanco iu prices to tho
prairie rotailcrs sinco 1900, although
th« cost of manufacture has been in-
llnitiily augmented by higher wages,

TRAGIC DEATH OF WHIT-
TAKER WRIGHT.
The trial of Whittaker Wright for
fraud, in Louden, ended in a tragedy.
Within an hour of being found guilty
and sentenced to seven )ear«' pönal
servitude, the most sevens sentence the

was convicted, tho financier, whoso
colossal dealings have created a sensation on both sides of the Atlantic, lay
dead in the anteroom of'the court, thus
escaping the jailors, who were waiting
outside to take him to prison. Whether
Whittaker Wright's death was duo to

of the trial, as announced in a bulletin,
or poison, us generally hinted by his

CANADA'S FINEST STORE.
Wonderful   Growth   of  the  flail  Order   Business  of  The   Robert   Simpson
Company, Limited, Toronto.
SOME INTERESTING DETAILS OF THE Bid TORONTO STORE.
Toronto has long been noted as the
city ot fine stores. With her miles of
beautiful residential streets, her avenues of trees, splendid lake front,
unequalled street car service and her
great department stores, such as that
0* the Robert Simpson Company, her
citizens peses* advantages few other
eitles can boast.
The Arm,, on Mr. Simpson's death,
In 1897, became a limited company,
and no modern phenomenon of the
business world, so far as Toronto is
concerned, has occasioned more remark than the growth of the business
of the Robert Simpson Company.
Large though the building Is and added to from time to time as It has been
The Robert Simpson Company building stands In the most prominent position In ,hc city, viz., the southwest
corner of Queen and Tonge Stree-rs,
where, situated in the very centre of
the city, It has long been one of the
most familiar Iimd-marks of the town.
A» a specimen of modern store architecture. It stands supreme In Canada.
It extends from Queen Street on (he
north clear through the block to Richmond Street on the south, with n Inng
series o. magnincent frond windows
on Queen, Tonge and Richmond
Streets. Counting the bajiemcilt, the
store numbers seven selling floors,
each  of'whtoh  would  provide
Boom for a Regiment's Drill
Manoevers.
On these seven floors, In twenty1-
three distinct departments, practically
everything needed 111 dally life, mnv
be bought for the lowest economical
price for which a store can sell It.
Experienced enterprising "buyers"
are scouring the world nearly six
months of the year Securing the most
suitable merchandise where It Is produced best and cheapest. Quantity Is
no drawback. The bigger quantity
bought, the lower the price. If the
goods are right the Robert Simpson
Company cannot take too much of
thern.
The business now known as the Robert Simpson Company Limited, wns
established away back In 1873, by the
late Mr. Robert Simpson. An unequalled Judge of dress goods and silks, his
store soon acquired a reputation for
drees fabrics second to none In Canada, and that reputation has been one
of the store's most valued and most
carefully treasured assets ever silice.
Soon Tonge Street rivalled King Street
In Its attractiveness for the ladles of
Toronto, and when after the great fire

ngo to accommodate the wenlthof merchandise which comprises the Robert
Simpson  Company's "forward" stock.
An Addition Equal  to One*
sixth of the Building
has Just been arranged for, by utilizing Ihe grunt reserve stock room oil
tho top floor and shifting the reserve
stock lo nn nuisldo warehouses. This
move gives room on the first floor for
Hie display of ihe finest stock nt dress
Roods and silks III Canada, and nne nf
the finest on the continent. Th« Cloak
department, where ready-to-woiir garments for women nre sold now occupies the entire second flat of 'the
main building, a spine equal to a fnlr
sized prqvlnce of Ontario Add. The
sample furniture show-room occupies
Ihe next entire floor, carpets and oUr-
tnlns the next, while on the fifth floor
above 'the ground Is «Hunted the largest nnd most pnpulnr restaurant In
Toronto with ft ten-tnlle view over the
