It is high time for all people to call a halt in the quaran
tine conflict between Mackay and Challis. bet reason
rule and peace prevail.
If mistakes have keen made on either side it is a far
greater mistake to recriminate and keep it up to the killing 1
point. I
The people of thi» section established a quarantine in
»elf defense. Thereupon some Mackay sportsmen, in the
sheltering flarkne»s of the night, with full knowledge of
the quarantine ran boldly into it and got "bumped ', or
at least got quite a little dent in their dignity. They then
claimed they "didn't know it was loaded" and have, ever
since, been calling upon the courts, authorities and upon
the public to take up their little personal grievance—even
-though it cause grim war and carnage.
They have pestered the public and the press until even
the editor of th« Mackay Miner has gone into spasms of
bucolic wrath and has "got to fightin wind mills and
'seeim' thing» at night.' "
If the»e sportsmen are really good sports they will now
keep still, at least until this public crisis is past. If they
don't, th»y should, and no doubt will, be severely "sat
upon" in their own "'hum'town'. The majority of the !!
people are not crazy—no, not even in Mackay.

Note: This heroic ballad may be sung to the tune of
an Irish "Come All Yez."
On the fourteenth of November
In the year nineteen-eighteen;
It was then there was enacted
That most memorable scene—
When a hundred men from Challis town
All gallant, brave and true,
Along the highway hurried down
To the Battle of The "Flu".
Marching along one hundred strong,
A brave and gallant crew,
Vfith blood in their eye—to do or die,
At the Battle of The "Flu".
The forces of the enemy
Were counted by the score,
Advancing at a distance of
Some sixty miles or more:
Coming nearer, ever nearer
Through all that dreadful day.
But the closest that they ever got:
Was sixty miles away!
And rumor after rumor
Of their coming grew and grew'
Until some other rumor proved
That rumor was not true.
We heard that thev were, coming,
By auto and by Ford,
With all the guns and bootleg
That they could crowd aboard,—
That they were mad as blazes
And had vowed that they would shoot
• As the quickest way to settle
The question in dispute.
And many a hero trembled
And shivered in his shoe*
As he vividly remembered
The dreadful Mackay booze.
They swore that it was "pizen"
And would kill at ninety yards
And so the captain shouted
To double up the guards.
"There is an auto coming."
An excited lookout roared,
But when at last the thing approached
It proved to be a Ford!
The captain then commanded:
"Right about and shoulder arm»"
And he gave a solemn warning
To beware of false alarms.
Oh, there were generals by the slue,
And the colonels they were many;
Of captains there were quite a few
But the privates were "not any".
And there were deeds of daring
Performed upon that day—
Yes, even though the enemy
Was sixty miles away.
Once when the day was darkest
Up spoke a tall, mule-skinner
Saving: "Fellers I'm not afraid to die,
But I hate to miss my dinner."
But though nobody died they say,
Or at least no one w ; as ouried.
The devil himself might be to pay
If Mackay had not tarried.
They styd that they were coming,
And that hell would be to pay.
But there were spies who kept them wise
And so they stayed away.
But, we are peace-loving people
And the world is now at peace;
Was Mackay right to force this fight?
Yes. in a—pig's valise.
Ed. Note: It would seem that Clarence E. Eddy, the
Poet-Prospector, who is the author of the above,
must have been present at the ''Battle of the Flu". It
requires a great poet to give real prominence to great
events and affairs. Even hell would never have been
so prominent had it not been for the poet Dante.
