Interesting Game of Baseball Last
In commenting on the South African
war the Montreal Daily Star saya:
" The Silver Lining which every cloud
li said to have is not always bo easy
discern ae In tbe heavy clouds tbat in
recent years have hung over the British
empire. The war cloud has passed
away, and while it has left behind only
too many tangible evidences of ite de*
•*.ractive force it has also left undeniable
proofs of beniflcent influence. We not
only have a loyal and united South
Africa, bnt we {have acquired a prestige
among tbe nationg worth great sacrifice.
Ibe dark cloud caused by the king's
alarming illness BeeraB to be passing
away and Is leaving in its wake
memory of kindly sympathies from
abroad tbat will not soon be lorgotten
by the British people. Especially have
these sympathies been manifeuted in
the United States, and there ie no country nnder heaven whose friendship ih bo
valued in the Empire aa thst of the
United States. Even papers usually
regarded as the most hostile critics ol
Great Britain and ite institutions have
published the most kindly and sympathetic references to our national anxieties and troubles.
"Our esteemed contemporary, tha
New York TimeB, recently published an
editorial article calling attention ta the
manner in which Great Britain hae been
able to stand tbe financial strain of ihe
war* On Wednesday the Times had
another article on tho improved post
tion wbieb Great Britain has attained iu
European public opinion ae a result of
the war. Admitting, as we ourselves
admit, that we were caugbt unprepared
and that tbe war developed terrible defects ln onr military organ nation and
'training, the Times sums up the situation by quoting from a German historian
of the Napoleonic ware: 'If the English are tbe last at the beginning of a
tight tbey are tbe last at the close ol
•very war.' It also quotes from Dr.
Delbruck, a German authority: 'Now
England will soon be In a position to
appear on any transoceanic battle
ground with a hundred thousand first-
rate, war-bardened troops. No other
power Is even remotely in a position to
de so much In world politics, England le the absolutely strongest
power, only held In bound by the possibility of a European coalition threatening her at home'."
The baseball match Sunday afternoon
between the Railroaders and the Ituet*
lerB resulted in a victory for the littler
by a ecore of 7 to 5. Conductors Shoal*
lico and Fietcher werB the battery for
the railroaders, ond DaUon and Stacey
did the curves and elope for tha other
team. Tbe umst startling Incidents ol
the game were a Hy catch by tbe tire*
man of No. 7 in lull field and one by the
firemun of No. 10 iu center. IJ,ith buked
Ihe surprise tiny lelt when the ball
atopped right iu their bands. The engineer of 7 blocked everything tbat
u-une his way in right fluid, and also had
a ^ two-bagger to bia credit. Trie eon.
ol the local, through an error tn judgment, located one nf Dalloii'B curves,
making a ihree-bujtger, and bringing a
pie of sleepers in * ft the Imtei-. Da
ton's curves were the wonder and admiration of the spectators, while bis
alcher etopped everything that hit his

It is said that tbe Hon. Smith Curtis

to take into consideration the fact tbat   Pu"-st-Anc«f    and contingencies to bo i

Owino to the vagaries of one Tracy, an
•soaped convict, it Ie not improbable
that the U. 8. n-m # in the Philippines
will have to be recalled. Already Tracy
Is master of the st.tt.-a ot Washington
and Oregon and may in the next few
days capture the uavdl station at Port
Orchard, and hidden-ally any battleships, cruieere, etc, tbat have not already reaobed Ksquimalt. Ic Ib believed
that Tracy Intends to capture tbe whole
Union and becume tbe Napoleon of/he
"the greatest nation on God'e green
Birth." Two companies of the Wash-
ton national guard U.ve been routed by
Tracy and his army. A number of
deputy sheriffs and policemen have been
alanghtered while they slept, and the
bluest kind of blue ruin is hauging.over

Ins first number of thu Canadian
Socialist, ipuplished iu Vancouver, has
reached this rni..e. G. Weston Wriglvy,
formerly of Citizen and Country, Toronto, is editor, and. K. P. Petiipiece,
until recently publisher of thelrirdeau
Eagle, is busiuesB manager. In tbe
editorial announcement to,the public it
saye: "In making our- bow to the
Socialists and advanced thinkers of
Canada and.Vancouver, the future place
ol publication (or the Canadian Socialist,
we desire to outline tbe policy to be pursued, and ask for the support of all who
recognize tbat the present social condi-
dions are intolerable aud are willing iu
join with us ln .endeavoring to agitate,
educate and organize to bring about a
state of society where it will .be possible
(or men to live as brothers." We must
congratulate Ibe editor on tbe nice die
ttnutlonin the opening sentenceof-his
announcement, when he makes bis
"bow to the Socialists and advanced
thinkers." There can be no question aa
to which of tbe two classes tbe intended
educating process is to be applied. Tue
Leader hopes tbe new publication will be
successful In educating the socialism of
Vancouver up to a point of brotherly
feeling among themselves. If it succeeds in enllgbtniug, even in a small degree, die socialists of tbat city, it will
have accomplished .wonders as an edit-
patoi. As (or the advanced thinkers,
they will probably go on thinking not*
wihstanding the fact that tbe Canadian

persons wbo do not believe in socialism
as tbe panacea (or ell tbe evils, social
and political, of oppressed humanity,
may have a different opinion as to whom
the ''strings" are attached. Tbe socialists of Canada may possibly be the one-
hundredth part of one per cent, of tho
t.ilal popoulatiou. Ie it reasonable to
assume that this small percentage of tbe
people have acquired all the knowledge,
that tbey alone are capable of thinking
clearly on questions hOVcting ihe welfnrt
uf the whole, and lhat the vast majority
of the people ate mere nonentltler-
moved by a system of strings and pulleys, and incapable uf coining to any intelligent conclusion ou questions t>fleet*
ing tbe manner in which tbey Bhould be
governed. Tbe editor of the Canadian
Socialist is the one "uustringed" writer
in Canada; tbe other hundreds of editors are mere automatons run on the
semaphore principle. The editor of tbo

Whin one looks carefully into the
matter, the strained relations at present
existing between Editor McAdaiu ul
* the Saodon Payetreak and the Supreme
Court ol British Columbia, the difli-
culty Is easily accounted (or. The editor
Is evidently a Celt, and In every person
oi Celtic origin there is more or less of
belle! In fairies, brownies, and other
"wee folk" or "good folk," We once
knew a couble of Irishmen attempt to
kidnap an organ-grinder's monkey in
order to extract from it tbe secret of tbe
"pot o' goold" hidden somewhere ln tne
the earth, simply because the animal
won a red tunic trimmed with green,
and the Celt, as a rule, Is suspfuiousof
•mall people gusdily dressed, lt may
ba that Editor MscAdam has seen one
ol the judges In all tbe gorgeousnees ol
scarlet and ermine, and that was to the
Celtic mind a sufficient cause for suspicion.

The Canadian Socialist says: "How
many editors in this province, or even

wish? Tbe dally press simply Voices

sign of any surplus flesh, while tbe udder should be wide, deep, capacious
and strongly attached blgb up on tu*e

IiMR Cheese In Canada.
At a meeting of the Montreal Dairy
and Cheese association a resolution
wns adopted authorizing a circular to
tbe dairymen of Canada strongly advising tbem to turn their attention to
butter more generally and to discontinue the manufacture of cheese entire
eacb year after Nov. 1. Tbe reasons for
this course are thnt fodder cheese on
tho market reduces consumption, and
It Ib only grass goods that are of a
quality sufficient to Increase demand;
tbat the consumption of cheese Ib diminishing, while that of superior
creamery butter ls Increasing; tbat tbe
price of butter Is higher on un average
ell the year round than thnt of cheese;
that the manu fact ure of butter Is more
profitable than cheese. These are all
good reasons why tbe Canadian dairymen should make less cheese nnd more
Wnltera  on   Horaebaek.
In great French houses of days gone
by dinner was unuounced by tbe blowing of hunting horns, and It Is on record thnt at certain gula fensts tbe

full armor, mounted upon caparisoned
horses, a practice we could only took
for during the reign of chivalry. Of
the itttendniits nt dinner the carver and
server took precedence over all the
others. They stood probably on each
side of their lord. The server, lt may
be mentioned, was tbe officer wbo
placed tbe dishes ou tbe table.

ter all is said und written ou tho
subject, each man must decide thu
question largely on bis own judgment. He will And it necessary to
consider the nature oi his farm ;
the suitability uf his buildings und
implements; the cost uf hired help
if such is required; the proximity
of a good market for his ttuished
products, and many other details.
The comparative advantages of beef-
growing and dairying would probably be the first point considered
by a farmer who was just about
to make a start in cattle-raising.
Men who have hud long experience
in either of these linen, are not likely to change lo tho other line,
involving us it docs, chunges In farm
routine, in variety und munugoment
of crops, In buildings and equipments, without a good deal of deliberation. That beef-product ion can
bo curried on wilb a smaller expenditure for labor and utensils is
perhaps true, end it certainly docs
not require the constant attention
to business that dairying entails.
Next comes the question of breed
It will, I think', be generally conceded by fair minded nun tbat there
is no "best" breed. Everything depends on circumstances, A breed
tbat proves highly satisfactory in
one district, may be found entirely unsulted to different environments. Only four breeds of beef
cattle, viz., Shorthorns, Ilerefords,
(lullownys and Aberdeen-Angus, pave
( attained popularity in Cunada, and
only the ihst mentioned can be said
to be generally distributed. The others may equal the Shorthorns for
beef production, nnd oven surpass
them under certain conditions, but
tho superior milking qualities of
the Shorthorns, and particularly of
tho grades, have given them an unequalled popularity among our fanners. Where feed is plentiful, and
the country not too high or broken,
they are likely to prove satisfactory beefers, and in addition will
produce a fair amount of milk.
The ease with which good bulls of
this breed c&u be procured for grading purposes, is nlso an argument
in its favor. Breeders of tbe other
sorls are comparatively few, nnd
the opportunity for choice is small,
when oue desires to select a bull,
ln the colder parts of Canada, and
on the bare pastures of the mountainous districts, the Galloways
and West Highlanders, should prove
serviceable on account of their hardiness and activity.
Among tbe dairy breeds, the Ayr-
shires, Holstelns, Jerseys, Cittern- :
soys and French-Can ad ions are al I
held in considerable esteem. The
latter have been almost unknown
outside of the province of Uuobec
until the last year or two, but
they are now attracting consider- .
able attention. Under adverse cir- ■
cumstances, such as scanty pastures, lack of proper winter foul nnd
care, etc., they will probably yield
a greater percentage of profit than
those breeds which have for generations been accustomed to good fo0d
and care. The Guernseys, although
highly thought of in the United
States, have never gained sufficient
foothold in Canada to enable our
farmers to judge their suitability
(or this country. Doth thoy, und
their close relatives the Jerseys,
are especially adapted for the production of fancy butter or cream
for a high-priced city trade, and
the majority of Canadian herds of
these two breeds are, 1 thin'-:, used for this purpose. The Ay> shires
and Holstelns seem tn he gaining in
popularity among the general dairy
farmers who support the cheese factories and creameries, and with
the dairy Shorthorns, aie likely to
divide tbe greater part of tbe dairy
Held between them. The Holatolhs
are likely to do better on tho
level lands, with Hush pastures nnd
plenty of winter food, while the
Aryshires should, 1 think, Hnd more j
favor on rollfng or hilly hinds, be- |
causa   of their great activity,
But, while certain well defined
differences may characterize the
various breeds, yet It may be well
to remember that there is much -
greater difference between individual animals of the same breed
than between different breeds. A
good      cow is    a    good cow     no
matter     what    bor breed may     be. ;
Therefore,   let each  man    sulcct  the '
breed that he considers best   suited
to his    conditions, and sticl,   to it. ■
Let bim buy, or breed to, the    best '
available   bulls of tbat breed,    and
continue    to grade up his    herd to
a higher   'degree of excellence   voar
by year.     The practice followed    by
some farmers of using    bulls      first
of one breed nnd then of another is
fatal    to «H    plana of building np
a handsome      uniform   "ml profitable    herd of grade rows', and that
Is juBt what    most farmers require; ■!

Nanaimo 2; Ladyimith 0.
The rest of the fint ball wai marked
by close checking and although tha
Ladyimllh boyi pressed hard neither
team scored.
At tbe commencement oi theiecond
half It waa plainly seen that th. home
team wae beginning to rmh mitten aad
playing the game of tbeir Uvea. J "Adams
was moved up to the forward lint and 3.
8anderson took bii pile, on th. hall
backs. The change wm . good one .nd
the play became last and exciting. Nanaimo tuibed the bill into the Ladyemith territory and Ed. Labay neatly
eaved. The ball then traveled to tb.
other end aud J. A.lame iicnred it Irom
a pais Irom Waity Claik and with a
iplendid rush scored. Time, 16 minute.,
Nanaimo 2; Ladyemith 1.
With only 16 minutes to play the
boyi bucked up and In three minatei A,
Morrison did the trick, .nd .mid tb.
cheering of the lerge croud tied th.
Nanaimo 2; Ladyemith 2,
The game now became one of tbe beet
extiibitioni ol lootball ever eeen here,
and although tbe Thinks strained every
nerve to score again, the horn. boy. pal
forth every effort to prevent and nobly
J. Kichardi secured snd ths ball was
lent dangerously near ths goal, bat J.
Sanderson snd T. O'Connell got in the
w.y and with nest combination quickly
relieved and 0. McMillan wai given a
chance. Oh.rli. wai on hand and with
a neat pate gave tb. ball to hll brother
Bob, who wai playing a itrong, steady
game, and he secured Ladyamitb'i third
goal in five minutes, and tha crowd
weut wild.
Ladyemith 3; Nanalmo 2.
With only leven minatei before tlmo
the Tbietlee tried hard to .v.rtd.lwt.
but the furioui pice wee beginning to
tell on them .nd they eould do nothing
with their opponent!. Cilei ol " play
defence, Ladyimith," oould be heard
Irom all points, but the boyi w.r. not
satisfied, and with clever puling .ad
good checking pressed th. viiiton' goal
hard. Eno, Crosier and McMillan in*
ilulged in aome fine combination and
gave tbe ball Into the car. ol W, Clark,
and Watty d.llveied tbe goodi in fine
