* J. G. Yoiinggreii,
Complaints That Post Office is Held
By an Alien.
For Borne time back there has been a
good deal of growling at the slate of
things permitted to exiet at Chemaimip,
which place has been figuring somewhat prominently of Iuto in thcee columns.
It is alleged that the important office
of poBtmaeter is held not by a British
subject but by an American citizen,
Oa examination of the official records
The Leader finds that this is correct.
Tne poi.tmnflter is Mr. E. J. Palmer,
manager of the Victoria Lumber Company, which ia kUo a purely American
concern, its president and directors re-
Biding three thousand miles from this
country. Mr. Palmer, it ie also alleged
ha director of the General Hospital at
Chemainus, being one of the two govern*
ment, (that is Canadian Government
not Ihe United States Government), ap*
pointers, the other being the genial
Captain Gibson, United States Consul,
also an American cltiz?n.
Very frcr people would care a straw
who was postmaster cr were government
appointees on the board of the General
Hospital provided the duties of those
offices were faithfully discharged, and
The Lender's correspondent has not a
word to offer on that point. But everybody who knows anything about the
case points to tho fact that no Canadian
ia allowed to occupy any official position
lu the United States, and that where
attempts are made to give such positions
to Canadians there Is a tremendous
racket aud the United States is torn
asunder with the thought of an Alien
fiiling any office, no matter how mean or
insignificant, which could bo occupied
by an Ameikan citizen.
The theory in the Slates about matters
of thia kind is that there Is at present
enough American citizens to go round all
tho offices likely to be created bv the exigencies of United States politics. That
Is all right, b-.vb Tho Leader's Chemainus correspondent, but why ehould the
strut*; enr-.1 rule not upp'y to Canada and
tbe Canadians?
Everybody who reads the papers hae
seen the accounts of the treatment meted out to Canadian woiktnen and others
from this side of the line who have tried
to earn tht ir living acrosa-lhe line w ith-
out chancing allegiance to King Edward,
and it seems more than queer tbat American companies should be able to come
In here aud cut down all our best timber, worn all the best .ore out of our
mines and even fill cflicce which ehou'd
be filled by Canadians, cr at least Brit-
lab subjects. This may seem a narrow
view, but it ie the American one.
As intimated in a recent issue of TI e
Lesder, it is ruld to be likely that Mr.
Palmer will chnrge hie allegiance and
become a British Bulj^ct, but that does
not isense the Canadian Government
for employing an alien to fill eo important an official position as postmaster of
such an important office aa Chemainus,
It sounds strange to hear of the Canadian Government paying official salary
loan American citiz.»n for discharging
duties pertaining to the Government of
Canada. There ia no such thing acnus
the line, no the case le unique.
Strange to say, the late postmaster al
Extention, who ran away with n lot nf
money belonging to the government, II.
Maille. was also an American citizen.
But the manner in which he condu tnl
tbat iitUce was a scandal, as The Leader
knows to its sorrow. It may sound incredible but Is a fact never!! elcFB that
Maille actually destroyed 05 copies of
one edition o( Tlie Lpader,'duly stamped
with one cent Btamps, and plainly addressed to subscribers in Extension,
Why be did It Tbo Leader could never
learn as every letter of inquiry was
answered witb a torrent of Insolence and
abuie.  It waa learned afterward that

uoniilo or paper, and was determined to
protect Hsu morals and intelligence o'
the Inhabitant! ol Extension from con-
lamination by Tlie Leader. But the
man has gone and the matter dropi.
01 course the worthy and esteemed
poslinasleratClieniBinilsia a very different kind of man from the poor creature who filled the Extension berth, but
Tho leader ie informed that there ia a
good deal of dissatisfaction tbat such an
office should be tilled by an alien whrn
there ore heaps ol good Canadians de-
serving of recogniiion from their government. Mr. R.lph Smith, M. P., for
tills district, hae had this matter brought
to hie attention very pointedly, but he
afraid to take any action for fa ir ol
offending his American fiiends, Meesis.
Palmer and Gibson, who have been very
kind to him.
Another chapter haa to be added to
the interesting romance of a lumber
camp published in The Leader. A few
dayi ago Captain Gibson, it ie reported,
met Provincial Constable E. B. Halhed
ln the store at Chemainus, and conversation began regarding Dr. Telford'e
furniture. It is alleged that the captain
made some disparaging remark! regarding the condition uf the furniture
and Dr. Telford's offer of the lime to
the hospital. These remark! were
warmly resented by Constable Halhed.
and pretty quickly there was a war of
words, which at one time eeemed likely
to lead to other kinds oi argument. Ai
both of the gentlemen are of heroic proportions The Leader'a correspondent
hopei no one will be offended if be
shudders at thought of what might have
followed had tho twain clashed in the
store. Fortunately the dispute ended
in an exchange of somewhat warm compliments.
Feeling still rune high throughout tbe
camp in regard to tbe affair; The Leadei
ii assured that the end is not yet, and
that further sensational developments
may he expected.
The latest rumor is that of offers of
compromise in the matter of the little
hills mentioned In these columns, and
of peremptory refusals to consider euch
A Most Brilliant Success In Every
Alt who attended the dance given by
the Ladysmith Baseball Club in Gould'*
hall, Friday evening*, are unanimous in
saying that it was equal to anything cf
the kind ever held in town. The at*
tendance taxed the accommodation, Id
fact, a larger hall would have been comfortably filled with tbe couples. With
their usual good management the club
had prepared the floor until it was lo
peifect order, and made dancing most
enjoyable. Refreshments were served
at the Interval, and these aleo were quite
up to the mark. Mr. Sim SaoulJice
acted as floor manager in hia usual acceptable manner. The baseball boys
attended In club uniform,
It is understood a handsome sum was
netted lor the funds of the club, and
that the boys are now confident they can
look forward to a good season of sport,
after such an auspicious opening. Mr,
I), Murray haa bsen elected manager;
J. C'-Rli.I captain; W. Manuel sec-treasurer. Tlie club is divided into first
and second teams. Practice night

JOS. FOX,       •      •        Proprietor,
Oneol Ladysmith's moet prominent
citizens called tbe attention ol The
Liader the other day to tho almost total
absence of flagstaff, in the town. The
mitter liai only to be drawn to one'e
attention to become almost painfully apparent. Tlie gentleman referred to
hoped that It would only be necessary
to call attention to tlie deficiency to
lend to ihe Installation of many a tall,
tapering staff In the ground! of Lad)
smith's many pleasant residences.
The Leader ie mre that before tho
arrival ol Lsdyemith'a grer.t gala day,
July Fl it, there will be ample acorn-
modation tor the dliplay jf patriotic emblems. The late -Mr. George Norrli
used to use the lhgitifi on top of the
Fiee Preea building to announce to the
citizens cf Nanaimo nny groat happen
lugs in the course of the Boer war, and
the citizen! appreciated hii enterprise
and patriotism.
Public Meeting Called for Saturday
At the request of eeveral cf Ihe citizens
The Leader announces that a meeting cf
all the citizen! will be held in Gould'i
hall next Saturday eveniDg at 8 o'clock
for the purpose of discussing the ar-
raogemente to be made for the celebration of the national holiday in Lady
Bmith in a fitting manner.
Use earnestly requested that, owing
to the short tiure now left at the disposal of the varioua committees, every
citizen should turn out and help with
hie advice. In order to give the men on
the other ehift a chance to express tbeir
views it is euggeeted that another meet-
Ing be called in the eame place for tbe
following Saturday evening, but thia on
be left to the meeting next Saturday,
thel9.li instant. It is aleo euggeeted
that if the weather he flne and the attendance too large for the hall, the
meeting could be held In tbe pavilion.
Happenings in the World of Sport
Ibrox Park, Glasgow, where the terrible accident occurred April 8th, on tbs
occasion o' the international football
match between England and Scotlsnd,
li the largest athletic ground! in Ihe
United Kingdom. It hae a greater leafing capacity than the Cryital Palace
grounds, London; and ll eetimatcd at
180,000. The provincial papers whicli
put the crowd in the grounda at 7,000
must have thought that the figures
telegraphed to them were incredible—
70,000—but all the American papers
printed it at tbe latter figure, and were
only 10,000 short of the actual number,
which was 80,000. E.-en little country
football matches draw crowds of 7.000.
At a well attended meeting on Sundsy
the! Ladyimith Shamrock and JJuther
teams made all arrangement! lor a return
match on the bunker grouudi next Saturday afternoon, the loiers to pay lor a
