How Our  Boys   Wero  Treated  at
Calgary on the 24th.
The Goldon hoys left on Sunday's No.
2 for Calgary to take part in the Football
Tournament held their in connection
with the Fire Rrigade Bports on tl:
Queen's Birthday. Had the boys known
then what they know now the chances
are they would have saved their money
and had a good time at home.
To givo a detailed description of their
trip and visit would be an arduous task
snd perhaps would not be fully appreciated by our readers, we will endeavor
however, to give a short account of the
treatment accorded the boyB.
The journey to Calgary was accom
plished without any mishap, the only
thing worthy of mention being the very
high class dinner which tho boys
enjoyed (?) at the C. P. R. hotel, Field.
Arriving at Calgary about an hour late
the boys made their way to the Queen's
Hotel where they secured accommodation. They lost no time in retiring and
the next morning were up betimes and
alter a hearty breakfast proceeded to
take in the town." The local daily
made some sarcastic remarks about the
" yellow kids " from Golden coming
down to play football. They " didn't do
a thing " to the Calgary footballers however as further reference will show.
There were live teams entered for the
football tournament, which was the
principal attraction of the day, viz.:
Calgary Industrial School, High River
Industrial School, Golden, Calgary and
Fire Brigade. In order that the tournament might lie finished in one day thc
.Fire Brigade team dropped out, thus
leaving only four teams in the competition. The draw was as follows: Calgary
Industrial School vs. High River School;
Calgary vs. Goldon. The first game
took place in the morning and was a hot
one from start to finish, and on time
being called no goals had been scored.
After a short rest tho teams lined up
again and played an extra 15 minutes,
and just beforo time was called the High
River boys scored a goal. The Golden
boys were interested spectators of this
game. They did not, however, like the
way tue reforoe called " fouls" without
being appealed to. Then again one of
the Calgary school boys was hurt about
ten minutes after the game started and
had to retire. At half-time the captain
of this team asked the referee for permission to put on a substitute in place
of the man who had retired, but the
referee would not allow it. This is one
sample of how much tho referee knew
about the game which he was supposed
to be conducting. We will mention
others as wc go along.
After lunch the Calgary and Golden
teams lined up, the Golden team being
as follows:���Goal, D. M. Rao; backs, K,
M. Wilson, A. Ft Smith; half backs, W.
Alexander, E. Ashe, G. II. Mitchell;
forwards, J. Liillour, F. Ames, J. I).
ColijUhoun, W. B. Robertson, R.Hughes.
A word of explanation i* necessary regarding the Calgary city team. When
the city club found out, at the eleventh
hour, that tho Firo Brigade had withdrawn from the tournament, they
thought it would bo sportsmanlike to
run in one or two Brigade players in
order to strengthen their team. Captain
Wilson of the Golden team protested
against thia action claiming that the Fire
Brigade men had no right to play for the
City a* tho Brigade had withdrawn
from the contest. The protest however
was disallowed and the " yellow kids "
from the mountains had to face a combination team. Previous to the commencement of the gamj one of the City
players just about laid out two Golden-
ites, kicking one on the instep and tho
other on the mouth. It must eithor
have been done intentionally or through
ignorance, probnbly a littlo of both,
however these little incidents did not
tend to raise tho City players in tlie
estimation of tho Golden boys. The
teams lined up and th* ball was soon
put in motion and travelled rapidly from
one end of the field to the other. In a
fow minutes the surperior combination
play of the Golden forwards resulted in
a well earned goal, the ball being put
through by Robertson, amid great
cheer* from the Golden contingent. A
short time after the kick-off the ball was
again put through the Calgary goal but
was disallowed on a claim that the ball
was " fouled " before the goal was made.
The Golden defence wero playing a star
game and kept the ball pretty constantly
in tlieir opponents territory. About ton
minutes before half-time was culled the
Golden forwards sveured the ball and
passing it from one to tho other dribbled
it right up to their opponent* goal
Colquhoun sending in a low, swift shot
which was too much for the Calgary goa
keeper. Half time was called with the
score 2 to 0 iu favor of Golden. On resuming play the Goldenitea reserved
thomselves as much as possible playing
a defensive game, taking a run up occasionally to tlieir opponents goal Hue. No
further scoring was done however and
tho game ended in favor of Golden.
During the lirst half of tho game Captain
Wilson of Golden complained to thc
referee that one of the Oalgary players
had spikes in his shoes and thc marks
of the spikes could lie seen on the hands
and limbs of the Golden boys. The
referee told him it was all in the game
and to play ball. Robertson of the
Golden team, after passing the ball to
his mate, was kicked behind the ear by
a Calgary player, ho went down with a
thud and it was thought for some time
that ho would have to retire. After a
few minutes however he pluckily resumed play, but the referee didn't think
it necessary to rule the Calgary player
oft for rough plav���Oh no. There was
not the slightest excuse for anything of
the kind as Robertson was not near the
ball when ho received the kick. The
roferee never even allowed Golden a free
kick, although It was one of the foulest
plays ever witnessed ou n football Held.
The great Calgary combination team
who were going to walk all over the
���'yellow kills" were mad because they
couldn't Bcore. Tne Golden boys played
all round them and won the game without any trouble. The city team were
going to do it up brown, in the event of
tlieir winning tho game, and had made
all arrangements for a grand supper at
which they were going to entertain the
Golden boys���the supper didn't come
The Golden team had just time to go
to the hotel and have a rub down and
get back to thc grounds when they were
called on to face the High River boys in
the final game. Play from first to last
waB very fast, the previous game however had told considerably on the Golden
boys, who received pretty rough treatment at the hands of the city team.
Notwithstanding this however they went
into tho game heart and soul. It was
not long however belore it could roadily
be seen that the Golden boys were playing not only the opposing team, hut the
referee and also the team which they
had defeated not two hours boforo. The
conduct of the city team during thin
game was to say the least disgraceful,
and the members of this team are
neither gentlemen nor sports. They
wero defeated fairly and badly yet they
had not the good grace and the true
character of sportsmen to accept their
defeat in a proper manner. All through
the game thoy heaped insult after on the
Golden Doys and their conduct was so
rowdy that thc Bports committee would
havo been justified in turning the whole
pack out of the grounds. In regard to
the referee, his decisions were rank, he
wouldn't even listen to what the captain
of the Golden team had to say, and
when appealed to by any of the Golden
team ho not ovor politely told them to
shut their mouths that he was running
the game. Play continued till half time
without a goal being scored. After n
few minutes rest play was resumed and
for some time neither team seemed to
have any advantage. Tho left wing of
the Indian team then Bocured tiie hull
and bringing it down field pasBod It to
one of their players on the right wing,
who when tho ball was passed to him
was off side, being behind both backs of
the Golden team. Captain Wilson called
the attention of tlie referee to this fact
and no effort was made to prevent the
ball going through. After the Ml had
been put through the referee had the
nerve tn say to Captain Wilson, " I give
them a goal." He wouldn't even consider the protest whicli Captain Wilson
made right there, nor did lie ask tin-
goal umpire whether it was a goal or not
but kept away off iu tho center of the
field. The player who put tho bali
through acknowledged himself that he
was off-side, and the opposing team lined
up for a goal kick and were greatly surprised when told it was a goal. What
made it worse thc attention of the referee
was repeatedly called to the fact thai
tlio riglit wing of the Indian team were
playing off-side right along. The ball
was kicked off again and the Golden
forwards took the ball up to their oppon
outs goal end rushed it through. It was
about a foot, over the line and a goal was
claimed, tho goal umpire held up lii**
hand for a goal but tho referee took no
notice of it being away np iu the ceutei
of tho ffeld and while the Golden boys
were appealing for tlieir well-earned goal
the ball was kicked out to midfield. No
further scoring was done and the game
ended���according to tlie referee���in
favor, of the Indians 1 goal to 0. The
Golden boys immediately made their
protest in tho proper form and they have
the satisfaction ol knowing that the Executive Committee of the Firo Brigade
acknowledge that the referee was unjusl
in tlie way he conducted thc game.
After duly considering the protest they
decided to refer it to tlie Executive Committee of the Western Association Football League at Berlin, Ontario, for
Tlie Golden team journeyed to Calgary
a distance of 107 miles and paid their
own expenses, in order to play football.
All they asked for was fair play���bill
they got dirt. They have no complaint
to make against the Indian team who
played a gentlemanly and quiet game
and it would be well if the city players
would lake a few pointers from thorn In
this respect.
When lhe Golden boys arrived in Calgary Monday morning and sported their
yellow badges tho city players thought it
would not do so bu behind tliem In this
respect, so they had a large edition
printed and hawked them about the
streets at 10c. each. They even aske.l
the Golden boys to buy them, and to
finish it after thc sports were over and
they had cast slur after slur at the Golden team they had the gall to ask them
for their badges. Our boys didn't see it
that way. They were under no obligations to the city team. They had nut
received the courtesy duo a visiting team
from them and last of all they could not
see why they should givo tlieir badges
away after lieing charged 10c. for a Calgary badge.
On Tuesday evening thc Brigade boys
entertained their visitors to a smoking
concert and au enjoyable evening was
Notwithstanding thc treatment accorded them by the city team and the tin-
justness of the referee the boys speak
highly of their treatment by the members of the Fire Brigade and a unmoor
of the citizens. They wish the Calgary
Fire Brigade to understand that although
in a measure disgusted with their trip
they attach no blame to them ami wish
to thank them most heartily for the hospitable manner iu which they wore entertained. None wero more hospitable
than the proprietor of the Queen's Hotel
Mr. S. J. Clarke, who treated them right
royally and endeavored in every way
possible to make their visit a pleasant

It is not necessary for the referee to

The great city combination wero over-
hoard to remark that the Goldenitea
were small fellows and they woul t soon
ran through them.
We have a junior team in Goldon that
will play ail round that big combination.
It is understood that the reason for
charging 10c. fur tlie badges of theclly
club was to raise funds for the gram!
mpper which was to take place after the
expected glorious victory of the big combination of city players over tho "yellow
kills" from Golden.
Several members of tho ci'y team camo
(after it was all over) to tho Golden hoys
and tried to smooth things over, but ail
apologies thoy could make in a hundred
yea ra would never wipe out the insults
heaped upon oUl' boys.
The .Junior Football club learn visited
Donald on the 34th. The team was
composed of W. Jtookhout (captain), C.
Dubar. W. Piigbo, If. Pughu, U. Hanna,
YV. Houstou, A. Levoque, It. Hanna, 1*1.
Sutherland, 1*. Kenny, A. Jayncs, and
Willie Houston aa resorve force.
Ou arriving at Donald the Goldenitea
were received as the visitors of tlie
Donald boys, who took them to their
homes and treated them like princes.
About 8.50 lhe football match, the
event of the day, began and lasted for
one hoar. Doth teams were very evenly
matched as to sine and weight, it was
an excellent garni on both Bides, nltbftugh
It showed that tlio Goldonites needed a
little more practice to make an easy
game and conquest for them. The
Donald I toys were belter able through
long-continued practice to pass the hail.
To individualize as to who played tlio
best game on tho Golden tide would bo
impossible, as it was an excellently put
up game by them, considering lints was
their first match and on strange grounds.
Judging from tbo names, it makes one
(irmly believe thai the boys on both
sides are perfcot littlo gentlemen. Thore
were no disputes for Mr. Wood house,
tho reforoe, to settle, and no one hurt,
ll senilis a pity from current reports that
the game had not lieen played in Calgary
previous to the senior match. Mr. A.
Freoze umpired for Donald, and Mr, J,
A. Bates, who accompanied the boys, for
(iolden. The result ofthe match was 1
tu nothing in favor of Donald. The
winning team received ��1 apiece ami lhe
losing team 50 cents npieco.
After the football match was over the
sports, such as races, jumping, eft)., wore
indulged in by the buys and girls, (hie
particular race, that of the buys taking
off their coats and boots, la*, ing them in
a heap, going hack about 100 yards, then
running to get on their coats ami Ikk-Is
ami back to place of commencement,
caused much amusoment t*> the spectators. A great deal of sport was taken out
of the tus-of-wur botween Donald and
(iolden. Thc sides were well matched
and excitement ran high. Tho prize
money was equally divided between the
teams. Tliis was the lust on au excellent
programme of sports, aud was .enjoyed
by old as welt as young. As a visitor it
struck one very forcibly that Donald
people know how to enjoy themselves
and make an on joy able time for visitors.
There seemed lo bo au unlimited amount
of prize money, as every child had money
to spend when tlie sports were over.
The Golden team returned home about
9 o'clock in tho evening fouling it was a
day well spent, ami also that when tho
Donald team paid them a visit for it
return match on the iM July, they would
give them a good timo in return us welL
ns a good, stiff game of football,. ���JlttfM**-  "C"!��!*j*T!a:'

Golden, B. C.
FRIDAY, MAY 27; 1808.
The sum ol (1,000 has been planed in
current estimates by the government Ior
the establishment oi a system ol travelling libraries. A system similar In this
lias been successfully and beneficially
ia*ii*ir.i*tn.l in-Hoveral of tlie states. Libraries uro being sent to farmers' Institutes, mining camps nnd village
communities. The libraries consist ol
itilh-ctions of books relating to agriculture, milling, forestry, works of history,
biography, travel, natural science, etc.
Tlm movement is educational, the object
being to place the best reading in the
homes which arc remote from the large
cities and towns. Tiiere is no fee, lull
communities petitioning for a library
pay the cost of one case. A petition
duly signed, iis""Jvoquired ��by the rules,
must ii.. received accompanied by six
(lollum Iii cover cosl .if the case, in order
thai a'.jiliri'.ry.inav b.' forwarded.
Probably very few* people have any
ilea of the Immense wealth of the Phil-
lipiuo Islands, whicli have now probably
fallen into the hands of the United
States. Perhaps the best proof of their
great natural resources is Ihe fact thai,
in spite of tlie conditions r,f government
that have prevailed under Spain, the
islands have prospered greatly. A very
competent authority recently stated
that he believed tin; l'hillipincs to be
the richest, islands in the world. What
other country could havuBtood, he asked,
t'le three steady drains on her resources to which tho Phillipines have
been subjected. Tho lirst of these is
due the ollicial class. Tiiere tiie doctrine
ui " In lhe victor the spoils" is exemplified in its most estremo form. From
the Governor-General to the smallest
employe in tlie Custom House every
official is changed when tiiere is a change
of Government iu Madrid, and every
ofHco lias its price���a pi ice which is paid
liy the holder to the person through
whose influence it lias been obtained.
The result is corruption, open and unashamed���squeezing the commerce and
industry ol the Islands tn the limit of
Bllfosty; and us their hold on these
lucrative posts is so precarious, the aim
���.and object of every good Spaniard is to
cave as much us he can while the good
time lasts. Willi this object Spanish
ollicials reduce their expenditure to a
minimum, uud send every dollar they
can save home to Spain, to lie invented
against tin; day when they must return
vo make way for tlieir successors. The
sum of money sent to Spain each year by
oftlcidls Is very large, but it isdpubtloss
exceeded by the sums annually sent tu
C linn by the Chinese traders, who have
absorbed the entire retail trade of the
islands. Some of those Chinamen aro
immensely rich, yet they live on a few
dollars a month and remit tho bulk of
their savings to China. Last and not
least, thsre is the heavy drain imposed
by the Church, which here is as wealthy
us it is powerful; the rebellion in the
Phillipines is much more a revolt against
occlesTastical exaction than against the
civil government���corrupt us thut undoubtedly is.
Owing to tho great extent of thc sea
const and the largo number of ports,
shipping is one of Iho principal industries in Spain. Iu January, 1897, there
wero the following number of Spanish
in .'reliant vessels iu commission!
.steamers E48, tonnage, 504,45!), borne-
l.owcr 110,802; sailing vessels 1,250,
.tonnage 11)1,8-10; total number of vessels
750,803,total horse-power 120,802. Tlie;
amount is only surpassed hy the merchant navies of (oe.it Britain, France,
Germany nml Norway. It. they,*.*..* IS'.!.',, i
9,200 steamers and 2,143 sailing ships
entered Spanish ports with curgti
amounting to 8,200,000 tons; lH,(i<i5
steam ships and 2,235 sailing ships left
Spanish ports with cargo amounting to
0,400,000 tons. Including vessels in ballast, 20,541 vessels entered Spanish ports
making a total of 38,405 vessels of all
nationalities. Tlie great difference iu
the quantity of cargo imported and exported Is caused by the large export of
minerals. The British Hag holds the
first place in shipping in Spanish ports,
the tonnage of the British ships being
four times gtcater than that of the
national ships, which hold lhe second
place. In examining the origin und
destination of thu 12,000,000 tons of
exports and imports, which formed the
shipping in Spain during the year 189(1,
it I.i seen that Great Britain holds the
Hrst place, with 00 per cent of the total
tonnage, France follows next with \2
per cent., Holland v.ilh ll percent., then

To the Editor of The Mnren :
Dear Sir,���Seeing that our senior foot
ball toam made such an excellent record
at Calgary on tbe 2-lth in the face of
diverse circumstances, nnd our juniors
showed themselves made of Biich good
stuff nt Donald, would it not be an
excellent idea for the people of Golden
interested in sports of this kind to
o* gaiiine and get up an excellent program me of sports to take place iu Golden
on the 1st of July? The.'Donald junior
lootball team will play tho_J.Golden
juniors on that date, and I think we
eoul.l easily induce the senior team to
come at the same time. One thing which
seems to be in the way of their coming
is that they seem to be afraid of such an
easy conquest that it would not bo worth
their while coming. But I think since
tho seniors' Vtsit and victory at Calgary
wo can consider that wo have an excel
lent team. Probably we could induce
tlio Calgary team to come; they would
not be afraid to play the Golden team on
tlieir own grounds. Then besides football we could probably have bicycle
races. There arc a number of "swift
riders in Golden, who with some practice
wonld mako quite an exciting race.
There might also be prizes for the most
graceful lady riders, a young girls' racc;
and tho most comical turn-out on a
bicycle. Last, but not least, a grand
bicycle parade iu tho evening. These,
together with the usual foot races, jumping, etc., and a grand display of fireworks
in the evening should bo sufficient to a
day of sports well worth the while of
visitors coming to Golden. I would
therefore suggest a meeting of those
Interested in 1st of July sports sometime
during tho coming week to organize and
appoint committees.
Thanking you for yourjvaluablo space
