Opinion on the question of Incorpor-
atlon is by no means unanimous. The
proposal to incorporate has some very
strong and unequivocal opponents, and
their arguments are.entitled to respect.
One of the strongest put forward by
them against incorporation is this, A
large proportion of the present population ol Ladysmith have recently moved
in from another camp, at a considerable
expense to themselveB, and they do not
look with much favour upon any proposal that will increase their taxes in
the slightest degree,
It can hardly be disputed that incorporation would tend to add somewhat to
the amount of taxation now exacted. So
we have here one of the most powerful
arguments that can be brought against
the proposal. It must be remembered
that those people who would object to
Incorporation are no inconsiderable
number, and that they could make their
influence strongly felt In any vote that
might be taken,
Then again, our friende the licensed
victuallers have a good deal to Bay as to
whether this place Bhall or Bhall not be
Incorporated. Amongst them the opinion hae gained ground that incorporation would mean for them increased
taxation without Increased revenue**.
Of course it is only supposed that the
corporation, were one formed here,
would increase the preeent tax, but the
license-holders are dubious about it, and
■re more than half-Inclined to believe
that the corporation would.
Here, then, are two classes of citizens
who, seemingly, have substantial
grounds for not desiring incorporation
at present, but the issue reBts entirely
with the citizens themselves as a whole
community. If they want it they will
have It; and In spite of the objections
mentioned, we are inclined to believe
that it would be the best thing that ever
happened to the city.
"All educated Englishmen write exactly alike—stupidly." wrote tbe late
M. Hlppolyte Taine, the eminent French
critic and historian, author, hy the way,
of the very beet history of English literature extant. Probably M. Taine was
not happy at the time, and was speaking the truth without any attempt at
Gallic ornamentation.
We were forcibly reminded of this die
turn of the great Frenchman on rending
an excellent editorial article in Friday's
Colonist, pointing out the deplorable
absence of originality and the total barrenness of thought in the countless
myriads of magazine articles which are
published monthly. There is nothing
to compare with this cataclysm ol sheer
inanity uuIcbb it ho tbat whiuh finds
covets and garish bindings in the
"novel" form and pours forth in merciless deluge, daily, hourly, from thc
presses of the so-called civilized world.
We presume that tbe Cjlonint has
particular reference to tbe ten cent
abominations, with their objectionable
photo-engravings ol all sorts of uninteresting things and people. Tbere ie only
one thing worse than timee libels on art,
and tbat is the nrtielo which usually accompanies the picture. Articles and
pictures are alike iuftchinc*made. The
"iirtiet" can produce those inartistic
pictures iu indefinite numbers; the
writer can supply yards, nay, acres, of
letterpress without any strain on his
brain. It is far easier to write that stuff
than to read it.
Every half-educated fool nowadays
eeemB to think that he or she has a
mission to tho world, and that tho press
ia the medium. As the Colonist well remarks, wbat on earth arc the alleged
editors thinking about to accept ond
publish such ranndlin stuff? We feel
certain that persons well known to ub in
this vory town, nnd in other places iu
tbe province could wiile infinitely better mul more interesting articles than
moat of those whiuh disgrace the
monthly mflgtizinoB. In fact it has actually come to this that rejection of
manuscript by those magazines is tt dis
tinct compliment, for it proves thnt the
author of tho rejected manuscript has
shown originality; which is strictly
against the rr.les nml regulations of
those monthly magaxtneB—apparently—
for one never Bees in tbem any indications ofBuoh n thing.
Fortunately the reviews and critical
magazines maintain today almost as
high astutulaid of literary excellence as
they did iu Lhe earlier decades of the
nineteenth century—but the people
never eee those good things; only hear
feint euhoes of them in diluted editorial
articles iu the daily press,
Art ami literature in tho present age
Bsem to he vanishing. There Ib not ono
writer today fit to be named even witb
tho third-raters of tho Victorian Era;
uot an artist whose originality and
power raise him oue inch above the dead
level of the million daubers. Of course,
we remember Thomas Hardy and Herbert Spencer and Tolstoi amongst tbe
wrlterSj but they are not writing now,
and probably never will again. And
tbere is Vereatclisgin, to he Buro, but,if
ho bu not a faddist on the horrible iu
war, he certainly manageB to conceal his
talents woll.
The magazine editors Boem to think
that, thoy understand perfectly tbe wants
of their readerB, but signs are not wanting to prove lhat the time io not far off
when the public will sicken of the taste-
less, vapid stuff which la being at pres<
ent purvoyBd, and will demand stronger
meat. But no doubt the able writers,
the groat oueo, will come when tbey list,
ami not nt the call of Demos and hit*
vulgar, jingling shekels, The million
hoofs of Demos are stamping art and
literature into tbe mud. I-i nothing to
remain but the monthly cheap miga-

Major-General Sir J. F. Maurice deplores the physical decline of the BritiBh
army. He estimates that out of five
men willing to enlist only two at the
end ot two years would he found eflec-
live soldiers, Heart weaknesB, pueu-
monia, rheumatism ami anaemia are the
chief cnueeB of break-down. Flat-foot
and had teeth disqualified hundreds. In
the German army they reject for one
crooked finger, or three teeth out, Gen'
a nil Maurice says the only remedies are
better physical training and better
housing amongst the people. {In the
Swiss army the percentage of failures
from phynicril ciuiaeB is the smallest In
tho world. This is undoubtedly due to
the scientific physical culture, which
makes of the Swiss the finest physical
specimens in the world, and the rational
habits of life followed by the people of
the model republic.
Mr. Footer-Fraeer, a keen-eyed British observer of American nfTilrB, has
wittily replied to the statement that
American workiieu are, ao a rule, better tlrtsaed than British, He sayB the
reason is that American clothes won't
last long enough to get shabby. Who
ever saw an American suit that was iu
its ninth or tenth year of active wear ?
And wbo has not seen a British suit that

One of Ladysmith's Pioneers Passes,
Away at a Ripe Age,
One gets a startling insight into
French public life and is better able to
form a just estimate as to tbe true value
of the word "liberie" as it ia understood
in France, on learning that Cardinal
."errand is to be prosecuted for describing the Combes ministry as "depraved."
Nothing, however, Ib more notable in
French rule than the distrust of the
church, the Government keeping strict
control ovor clerical organisations. Here
is the article in the penal code under
which tbe Cardinal is to be prosecuted
"Ministers of religion who, in tbe exercise of their ministry, and in a public
assemblage, pronounce discourses criticising or censuring the Government.
any law, any loyal act, or any other act
of tbe established authority, shall be
punished by imprisonment for not Iceb
than three months or more than two
years."     _____________________
Ex-Presldeut Kruger, in his forth
coming "Memoirs," makes a Eerious
charge against the late Dr. David Ltv
ingBtone, the famous Scotch missionary,
Kruger was commandant, in 1852, of an
expedition against Seuhele, who refused
to give up a chief called Moselele, a
murderer, hiding in Livingstone's mis-
lion station In Sech'elu'e country. After
the fight it was discovered that at Livingstone's station "there was a complete
workshop for the repair of fire-arms,
and a multitude of war materinls which
Livingstone kepi stored up for Seuhele's
use. This was a violation of tbe Sand
River convention, and the arsenal was
confiscated, in return for whiuh the
Boers wero insulted and slandered hy
Livingstone all over England."
Maybe It wnB just a temporary over
flow of sentimentality, due to the intoxication of the moment; maybe it was
just a piece of "blarney" intended only
for home consumption, but Mr. Car
negie, on being presented with tbe free
dom of the city of Dundee the other day
committed himself to a remarkable prophecy. He poiuted to the Scottish na*
tlonal standard (tho pink torn cat cavorting on a yellow blanket) and tbe stars
and stripes, which were intertwined on
the walle of the hall aud said he liked to
make predictions and pose as a prophet,
because nobody could tell whether he
was right or wrong. But the time was
approaching when those two flafzB united
would support the whole fabric of civilization." At auy rate It ie a notable
testimony to the tremendous influence
which even tbe smallest nation, if it be
of the right stuff, can bave upon "the
whole fabric of civilization." Even
Greece has hardly exercised a greater
influence upon civilization tban Scotland. The United States ehould feel
A Depraved "Noblewoman" Pays
For Her Vileness.
London, Nov. IL—Lady Violet Beau
champ will havo Lo pay Mrs. Julia Watt
*?5,000 damages for libel, but practically
for alienating the affections of Mr. Watt,
The verdict endB ono of the mist interesting and sensational suits of its kind
It has set society agog. Mr. Watt admitted having employed detectives to
watch her husband. That he wae
'•gay Lord Quex," appeared from one of
the detective's reports which read, "We
hope soon to have the evidence you d
elre because Mr. Walt hae been making
love to one of our young detectives."
In explaining why she went driving
with Lady Violet Mrs. Watt said she
was afraid her husband might turn her
out of the house if she didn't "receive
Lady Violet, She had written Lady
Violet's husband, Sir Reginald Beau-
champ to take his wife away,"
In answer to Sir Reginald's petition
for divorce Lady Violet had admitted
"frequent indiecrolions with her husband's associates." To the jury counsel
for Mrs. Watt said It was Lady Violet
who led Mr. Watt astray. Both were
bankrupt in character and the only way
to punish them was through their common pocket, and that its what the jury
At twenty minutes to Ihe o'clock on,

tbat there was no hope of recovery.

Several citizens have mentioned to
The Leader lately that it would not bu a
bad idea to found a branch of tbe society

in this town: not that tbere is any pice
sin,; need of it at present, althomjli it if
pointed out that there are one or two
drivers who require instruction in th
art of horse management, but the prof
pects are good for work before long. The
Suciety, however, can rest assured that
thero are plenty of walfihera hero in thu

of lumber, and on O.tobsr 5th, when 000
miles off the ciiaetot Japan, lost her rudder in a gale and began to limit. The
leak was kept down by the crew, but the
vessel,'according to First Male S-hH-
drop was entirely unmanageable without
a rudder and went over on her biam
ends. There was Immediate prospects
of the big schooner foundering, wheu
tbe American gunboat Princeton put in
an appearance and took off Captain Hanson and his nine mon. Had the Princeton herself not been suffering from some
little disability , Bays Mate Scheldrop,
she would have taken tho schooner in,
tow for Nagasaki, but under the circumstances the Pedersen and her cargo had
to be abandoned. Tbe Princeton landed
the men at Nagasaki on O-Hober 10th,
One of the crew was John T, Lukey,
brother of Mr R. J. Lukey, foreman of

Largest Gathering Ever Held In
The seating accommodation in Gould's
hull was taxed almost to ita limits on
Monday night when tbe Ladyemith
Board ol Trade met the citizens and
rendered an account of the business
done for the benclit of the town for
eight or nine months past. Mr. V, II.
Marshall, president of the Biard of
Trade, was unanimously voted to the
chair, Mr. James Freel acting as secretary, The gathering was or tbe most
representative kind, all classes in the
community being Btrongiy represented.
The chairman in opening tbe proceed*
ings said there bad been a lot of criticism of the Board's actions, but so farae
ho hnd ever heard, no advice as to how
the Board should mend its evil ways.
He and Ilia colleagues on the Board,
then present, would be delighted to hear
tbere and then juat what it was that the
critics referred to bad to uay. He wae
sorry that there had beeu bo much criticism and bo very little advice or pecuniary assistance in carrying on the work.
Personally be could say that if the people were not satiefle'd with tbe way in
which bo had acted he was perfectly
willing to step down and outright there.
Now was the time for the critlcB lo express their views; far better tban doing
that sort of thing n tho etreet coruere.
He would like to hear wbat they wanted
lone.   (Applauso).
Mr. John W, Cobnrn, chairman of tbe
Cemetery Commissioners, then inform*
ed the meeting rb to whnt bad been
done regarding the cemetery, and aleo
stated that hu personally had assumed
responsibility for the Bitfe keeping of trie
tire hose, obtained with great dfflleulty
(or the protection of the town, It wae
worth $1,500. The people bad b»en
iirkel to contribute to insure that hose,
bnt nobody responded; nobody Beamingly took the slightest interest iu tbe
mattor. Mr. Coburn then »aid that the
Board had done it. best in regard to all
the other questions affecting the town;
the completion of the waterwoke.asthey
knew, had been delayed owing to the
Btiike in tbo steel works at Pittsburg,
In conclusion he a ked for an expression
of opinion on the matter of the cemetcr;
as the criticism from soron quarters in
that regard had bci-n altogether too
Mr. Cory S. Ryder moved, seconded
by Mr, W. Kerr, that a vote of thanks he
tendered to the Board of Trade as a
body for the BtepB taken regarding the
cemetery and in getting tire hose for the
p-oteclion of the town. Carried unanimously.
The chairman then cordially invited
all present to become members of tlm
Board of Trade; the election "of officers
would take place in February, and tbey
could then elect whomsoever they pleased to nerve. Ho then neked if any present wiehed to ditctiss the matter of
incorporation, which had been talked a
good deal nbout lately,
Mr. Cobnrn said be would like to ask
if there were not three genllouum In the
houso who would ho willing to net ns
collectors for the cemetery fund, and
Mrsers Wilson, Hair up nml Freel vo
Inntered to do bo. They will wait- upon
the people at once soliciting aid for the
In reply to a question from Mr. Ryder,
Mr, TbomBon a-iid he was not prupured
to give i-uy exact ttatn regard in ft Ladyemith aseeBBtnciit, as thu roll was not
yet completed, lie would he glad to do
so when lhat wns done,
Mr. Ryder was anxious to ascertain
the latenble value of LadyBmith before
proceeding with incorporation talk, "He
was in favour of aeeing Mr, Dunsninir in
regard lo having the properly re**,Btored
iti lhe name of the purchasers. Mr.
Thomson pointed out that thii! would
mean having to give the people lhe deeds
aud then taking a mortage, which would
be aim ply out of the question.
Mr. Coburn uiovod. seconded by Mr.
T, L. Grahame,tbatacommitteeof three
be appointed to look iuto the matter of
incorporation and to report at a subsequent meeting. This wns carried and
MeBBrs. A. J. Kitto, barrister, Colin
Campbell aud T. L, Grahame were ap*
pointed to act.
Mr. L, T. Grahame said that he had
found very many in favour of incorporation, but was also aware that there was
a strong feeling against it in some quarters,
Mr, Cory S. Ryder, hb an ox nldornmn |
of Cumberland, then give a very Inter*
estitig Btatcment of thesuccrss attending
the operation of that corporation. Incorporation there had increased hiataxt-e
only 76a,,and tho benellts derived by the
ratepayers far more than compensated
for even that small Increase. He did
not think tbat any very large proportion
of tho people here were against Incorporation. The people bad only to havo
the benellts to be derived pointed out to
vote for it unanimously.
An interesting discussion then took
place on the question ol a public wharf
the chnirmau pointing out what tlie
Board bad done iu the matter, The
Chief Commissioner bad promised that
the Government would build a wharf
here if proper representations were made
from tbe people of Ladysmith.
Mr. Ryder nioveiL seconded by Mr. D.
Nicholson, that a committee of three be
appointed to handle tbe matter of tbe
wharf, and Messrs Ryder, Nicholson
and B. Forcimmer were appointed.
Mr. A. S. Christie then told about his
interview with Hon. Mr. Wells at Victoria regarding the wharf, saying that-
Mr. Welle distinctly declared that the
people of Ladysmith could have a Government wharf if they wanted it.
Tbe meeting tlu-u adjourned to meet
again at the call ol the chair.
The Leaders Romp Away From Cow
ichan's Good Team.
—For Sale by JOHN BICKLE	
Victory perched upon the banners o
the newly-formed Lidysmitb Leaders
Association Football team in their match
with the well-known Cowichan aggregation of dumpling chasers at Duncan on
Saturday afternoon in presence of a
large andjenthusiaetic gathering of poo
pic. The visitors found tbe Cowtchnne
easy enough, although the Ladyemiths
played only ten men the first half, and
at half time had ouly oue goal to 0 in
their favour.
The Loaders kicked off and bored the
leitther.ittto the enemy's defence in a
way that made the latter tired. The
home defence had hard work all the
time, the Lenders refusing to let up.
The sphere waB continually in front ol
thu Cowichan posts. The Cowichan de
fence did good work in stopping tbe
rushes of tbe Leader forwards. Clark
after lively times, managed to punt the
pudding into the net, scoring first goal
amidst chceri.
The Leader goal keeper forgot to take
down Marie Corelli's latest novelette,
"How to be happy though unemployed," but held up the goal pouts for or-
cu pat ton while surveying the battle
from alar. Tbe defence of the visitors
dlsciiFsed politics nnd the latest rules of
ping pong while tbe forwards kept the
mofquitoes oil' the home defence nnd
goal keeper. Leahy, the Leaden-;' goal
keeper has filed a protest, as be never
once touched the ball.
At tbe commencement of lhe second
half Ihiugs brightened up a bit, and the
CowichaiiB began to look dangerous
Leahy had to fold bia camp stool and
put hie thinking cap in his pistol pocket
for a fow miuules, as tho ball came with
u rush, and hut for his excellent quick
work there would havo been a goal for
the home. The pill was speedily reject
ed and tired back to where it belonged.
Somo very pretly and clever work wae
done by both sides before Ladyemith
(.cored again. Tomtit McMillan ohlig*
iug with a nice twill kick in the right
place. Then, after more guod work
I.mly Hiii ith scored nipiin, in-iking Ihe
ii.'ni c 3 and an oatrich egg iu favour of
tbe vinitorn.
For tho rest of tho game the Leaders
were gtnta of leisure, anil'when time
wae culled they pranced off with another well earned victory to Iheir credit,
Ladysmith played fine ball all the time,
helng steady, uneelfieli, and working
well in combination. If anybody deserves special mention and praise for
consistent and faithful work it is Tom
McMillan. Ho has ths makings of a
brilliant player, ami will bear watching
closely. Tne Leader balk-vis be will yet,
show up as one of B. C's finest expon
ents of the game.
'For the home team full credit is due
to Stanhope aud Mutter for their capital
work. 'Their team lacks combination
and their defence might be stronger.
The Cowichaua will play a return
match on tho bunker giounds, Ladyemith, on Saturday, the 22nd Instant,
Following will be tbe home team:
Goal. Leahy; Full hanks, J. Adam, T.
O'Connell; half backs, J. Campbell, J,
Eno, C, McMillan; forwards, T. McMillan, T, Burns, W. Clark, A. S-ilton,
Linesman, A. Smith.

First Presbyterian Church Make;
Great Preparations,
No one who appreciates .the high quality of Ladyeiuith'a local talent will bo
abdent from FitBtl're.hyteiinn church on
Tuesday evening when the lrng postponed concert will be given.
ThiB concert deeeivea lo be well patronized Irom the fact that it not only
comprises on its programme tlie very
beBt music..! end entertaining ability in
the town, but because the management
of First Presbytoriau church, with raro
magnanimity, postponed their own concert eome mon tha ago in-order that the
cemetery concert might not have any
Thia was an instance of generous consideration which wae warmly appreciated by the citizeua at Lite time, aud it ie
imped that they will signify their appreciation still further by turning out to
the splendid treat which haa been prepared.
A word or two about, some of the newer names amongst the entertainers will
help tu give the reader Eome idea of the
excellence of the concert which ia to be
Mrs. George Williams who will be
heard in vocal selections, ia a charming
aign of conspicuous ability, and ahe ie
sure to meet with a moat cordial reception from the people of Ladyamith on
hor first apperrance inpublic in thia
Mrs. Watson ia a most accomplished
pianist who received a training very few
in the province cun lionet of, She will
be heard in popular concert selections.
Mr. JeaBe Evans, the gifted young
WelBh tenor, has already made an impression here that ib strengthened every
time he sings. Ilia te min id the finest
voices in tho province. Miss Katie
Johnston of Nanaimo needs no introduction ton Ladysmith audience, Site ie
without a peer in tlie province as a reciter, considering her ago and experience. It is easy to predict a brilliant
career for one Boeingulaily gifted.
The otber ladiea and gentlemen on the
programme are t io well and favorably
known to all Ladyamith people to require any description here. Suffice to
eay lhat the concert in First Presbyter-
Ian church on Tuesday evening will be
one of the musical events of the Beasou.
Ml who go will enjoy a rare treat.
