Probability of This Institution Being
Established This Summer.
As is well known to tho people of
Ladysmith and Extension, Hon, James
Dnosmuir is very desirous of feeing- a
properly equipped hospital established
at Ladysmith, and he baa all alone
evinced the keenest interest in anything
connected with this subject. It ie now
learned tbat something will be done before long; toward putting the mailer on a
firm business bails.
Tbe merchant! to whom The Leader
hai broached tbe subject expressed
themselves as entirely In favor of having a first clan hospital in this city, and
have declared their willingness io assist
to the belt of their power. A site bae
already been selected on the top of the
hill, commanding a glorious view of the
Gulf and islands; and it ia ol easy approach from the level ground in the
lower part ol the city. BeBldes the fine
site therelithe bracing and salubrious
air of Ladyimith, just the thing lor convalescents and invalids.
From all The Leader has been able to
learn on the subject there it the best
of prospects for Ladysmith having a
first-rate, up-to-date hospital ready for
patients before tbe summer ol 1002 is
very old.
One of Nanaimo's Energetic Manu-j Meeting at Wellington Saturday
iacturers to Establish a Branch,
Nanaimo's Best Known Citizen
Passes Peacefully Away,
It came as a shock to many in Ladyimith to learn the sad news that Mr.
George Norris, editor and proprietor of
the Nanaimo Free Press, had died on
Monday morning, after a brief illness,
at the age of 57 years. Mr. Norris was
probably the beet known cltiten of Nanalmo, and be wai certainly one of the
city's most representative men. As the
editor of tbe Free Presi be wai known
from one end of the dominion to the
other, and he has left a place which It
will be almost impossible for his
snecenor in that chair to fill.
Mr, Norria had been in rather feeble
health for some month! back, but he re-
lused to cease work and kept at hit duties almost to the laat moment. He waa
at hit delk aa late as Friday last, and
when called up over the telephone by
the editor ol The Leader sent a cheery
Happy New Year along the line in the
old familiar voice,
Mr. Norria wai a native of London,
England, and came to this country quite
young. He lived in Ontario and the
United Stales lor some time bslore coming to British Columbia. He then settled at Victoria and for some years waa
fireman of the Colonial. Then he went
ti Nanaimo and established the Free
Preas, Hirst as a semi-weekly, later ai a
daily. The Free Press has the distinction ol being the only pioneer paper in
British Columbia which hai been owned
and raenrg'd during the whole course
of ill existence by one man.
Mr. Nsrrls was a perfect encyclopedia
ol local's oowledge, and had the history
ol Nannlino and vicinity at his finger
ends; ills tfHce was the Mecca of all
traveller, to Nanaimo; tharo all questions could be answered and all information supplied. With nearly every enterprise lor the advancement of Nanaimo's belt Interest,, Ihe deceased gentle,
man wai closely Identified; he was full
of energy, as is shown by Ihe erection of
the handsome brick block in which the
Free Press latterly lound a home. Had
he desired it he could have been mayor
ol tile city, but with the true journalistic Instinct kept hlmioll free from entanglements whloh would have taken up
ton muoh ot his time.
The Lesder joint with tbe people In
expressions of condolence to the bo-
reavtd family.
Mr. W. E. Humming, who li widely
known as one of tbe shrewdest and most
enterprising of the manufacturers doing
business in tbe City of Nanaimo, has
made up his mind that Ladysmith's
prospects are bright enough to warrant
him in seeking out a site for the erection
of a factory for the manufacture of ble
far-famed and dellciom aerated lever
ages here. With this object in view
Mr. Rtimming paid a visit to Ladyimith
last week, and it is understood selected
a suitable location for the proposed
The Lesder ie not yet able to do more
than announce to tho public the fact
that such an addition ia to be mad. to
the city's industries, bnt within a few
days the particulars will be made
known, Mr. Ramming, as is well
known to all citizens of Ladyimith, does
a very large business in aerated waters
and high-class "soft drinks," as they
are called to distinguish them from tbe
hard" liquors, which both cheer and
inebriate. Mr. Humming, who ie one of
the pioneers in the high-class aerated
water business in this province, is importing specially from England to Ladysmith a complete plant lor the manufacture of thoso beverages, and the
building lobe erected will be replete
with every convenience and improvement known to the trade.
Mr. Bumming has succeeded in working up a splendid businen not only in
Ladyimith but also all the way down
tbe line almost to Victoria, where hia
goods come into competition with the
Victoria article. Iu Ladysmith and
vicinity very lew other aerated beverages are used. With the establishment
of the factory here Mr, Ramming will
be able to cater even more extensively
and promptly to tbe waste ol bis numerous customers,

Shortly a petition ia to be laid before
the residents particularly ot First Ave.
for assistance to lay a three plank aide-
walk from High Street to the Hotel
Portland. Thii would be a great convenience to all cittern.    ,
Unfortunately tbe fine poem which
Tht Leader had Ihe "Insure ol publish-
ing from th. pen ol Mr, T. J. Barron,
tbe principal of the Ladysmith Publio
School, in list issue, contained one
•light mistake, which Mr, Barron overlooked. This wai tha un ol the word
Queen initead ol King. With this exception the poem wat all that could be
desired and spoke to all true and loyal
Canadians In the genuine accents of tha
highest patriotism. The Leader hopei
to publish other pieces from tha gifted
I pen ol Lidyimlth'e eiteemed Principal.
Repeatedly The Leader has heard the
complaint from mining men tbat there
ia no mioing recorder at Ladyimith,-. in
spite of the fact that this town ie surrounded with important mineral areaa
and that tbe owners of claims have to
travel all the way to Nanaimo! or Victoria to record and transact other necessary business.
Tbe time has come when an office
ahould be opened here ao aa to accommodate tho important aection ol Ihe
population who laro interested in rst-
talliferous mining. In tbe bills behind
and immediately contlguoui to Lady,
smith are some of the most important
metalliferous areas in Vancouver Island.
Prospectors are out all the time, and
the amount of business done in connection with those claims would astonish
tbe public did tbey know it,
It li unfair to the claim owners and to
Ladyimith tbat thoie men ihoutd have
to waste time and money travelling to
the far end of the island to transact a
little official businesi that might as well
be done here, Then, when the smelter
Is established and the prospectors and
claim owners begin to bring their ore in
It will be an intolerable nuisance to
have to waste half a week lo do the
boelness required in recording.
Tho government would be doing no
favor but a mere act of justice il tbey
were to establish here at once a mining
recorder's office. Ladyimith will be
known before many more months are
paet as one ol the most important metalliferous mining centres in the Province, and surely some provleion ihould
be made to meet the needs ot the
miners. The Leader hopes to lee thla
necessary office opened within a few
At half past one on Saturday after
noon in the parlors of 'he Wellington
Hotel, Wellington, a well-attended meeting of the Liberal electors of North Nanaimo wai held to elect three delegatel
to attend the Convention to be held in
Vencouver on January 30th. Oo motion
Mr. Walter Jones took tbe chair and
Mr. Theo Brvant wai choien as secretary.
The secretary read the call from tbe
Provincial Liberal Anociation.
It wai moved by D. Murray, seconded
by D. Gourlay and unanimously carried
that:      ■
1. "Whereas thla meeting has been
called by Liberal! for Liberal purposes,
therefore be it resolved that no member
of any Conservative or any other independent party be allowed to take part In
Ita proceeding!:
2. Tbat this meeting endorie the
action of the Vancouver, Nanaimo and
New Weetminster Liberal Association
ia protesting against editor! ol Liberal
papers and members ol the Provincial
Llbsral Executive being admitted as
member! ol tbe Convention, and Sec, 5
ol the Provincial Executive'! letter.
Moved by D. Gourlay, seconded by
D. Murray that the chairman appoint
the delegatel.  Carried.
The chairman appointed Messrs. W.
G. Fraser, D, Gonrley and D. Murray ae
delegate! to tbe Convention.
Mr. Eastman of NortbfleM, said that
Englishman's River should bs represented by a delegate.
Mr. Fraser Immediately offered to
resign from the delegation in favor of an
Englishman'! River delegate, explaining
that there waa no objection if the delegate igreed to pay hia own expenses.
The offer was not accepted.
Moved by D. Gourlay, seconded by T,
Bryant that the chairman be appointed
as alternate delegate.  Carried.
Delegate Fraser then asked the meeting to instruct the delegation regarding
party lines. He urgod them to advlae
tbe delegation whether or not to vote on
party lines.
Mr. George Taylor, who nominated
Mr. Dlckaon at last election, moved, seconded by Mr. D. Mnrray that the delegates be instructed to vote lor paity
lines.  Carried.
Short apeechei were made by the delegate! and others. The meeting was
enthusiastic and harmonious throughout and diipened well satisfied.
Preliminary Work is Almost Completed, Building Begins SOon.
Contractor Macdonald and bii force
ol men who have been engaged on tbe
extensive area to be occupied by th.
new echool houie, have nearly finished
tbe work ol clearing away all tbe stumps
and rocks with which the ground waa
encumbered to a surprising degree. It
i, expected that tbe actual work ol
building will commence at the end of
thie week or beginning of next. Anyone who visits Ihe site oan now aee
what a splendid situation the new
■cbool ii going to have. Tbe view la
grand, one being able to see into the
gull and all over tbe adjacent islands
and channels. As the tower of the
new school ii to be lixty feet high it ii
sot unlikely that the top of tbe tower
will become one of the most popular
coigns of vantage in the neighborhood.
Tbe children will have a first clan
playground and the belt quality of
fresh air. It la expected that tho work
of bnilding the school will occupy at
least a couple of months, if not more,
ae Mr. Macdonald is going to do a sub-
•lantial job. When completed tbla
building will certainly be ono of Lady
smith' principal ornaments.   .
Secretary Geo.Wilkinson Discourses
On The Poultry Show.
Seising a suitable opportunity a representative of The Leader put a few
questions to Mr. George Wilkinson, tha
energetic and courteous secretary of the
Nanaimo Poultry and Pet Stook Society,
with a view to obtaining some useful
and interesting information for The
Lsader'a hundreds of readers throughout this and adjoining district. Mr.
Wilkinson il an enthusiast on poultry
and pet stock and tew men in Canada
are better inlormed on tbe subject tnan
.he. Mr. Wilkinson's remarks were to the
following effect:
In regard to the show, I think we are
going to have the largeet exhibition
ever held on the Pacific coast. All this
last anmmer and right up to now fanciers have been importing birds from
Eogland, United States and Eastern
Canada. It is a regular thing every
night to see the chicken men waiting
with anxious looks tor tha Joan rounding the point, and when ehe land, tha
ahlpmenti ol chickens then you see
tbe smiling faces. My brother and
myeell have imported a trio of Golden
Duckwing Ex Game, tbe male ot which
ie off tbe famous Captain Eaton'. £100

game bantams that can be produced in
the old land, and also the 1st, 2nd and
third prlas winners ol the Illinois state
fair in tne black aud game bantam
hens. In Exhibition names and ban-,
there will be keun competition. '
Also, judging from the White Rock,
that have been raised on the Five-Acre
Lots, I think there will be keen com. .
petition in those classes. Also in Barred
Rocks; I know we can exptct some
good specimens, especially from tbe
good old reliable from the hospital. In
Black Minorcas I bear Mr. J. Nicholson
has imported some Palace winner.. .

who has not been keeping them since he
came out west, cannot afford to mil.
this splendid display ol  Ihe kingot
Canaries should also play a prominent
part in the exhibition, There wsa
a splendid display ol these leathered
pets last year, and I think there will be
some Improvement on it thie year.
For judgei we have secured two ol (he

0; all the provinces of Canada British
Columbia ie making the greatest mess
of its home government. Tbe people in
this province do not seem to know any
hotter than a spoiled child what they do
want, and consequently such an ingenious gentleman as Mr. E. V, Bod well can
pn.=o ns a saviour of the people, and
"One Richard McBride" can strut the
pavement as a iiero who preferred private life to office, (but unfortunately forgot to resign bis seat in the bouse wben
he was forsaking tbo cabinet).
British Columbia hailed the advent of
the Hon. James Dunsmuir into provincial politics with considerable satisfaction, ns the ns.n-spapers of tho province
will show, il one have tbe patience to
turn up the files, Bnt tbat was nothing to the chorus of joy wben he accepted the premiership. The etyle of com-
mant nflii som.thlng like the following,
and even tho Vancouver' World, which
had just been fighting strenuously lor
Mr. Joseph Martin joined the other
papers in the note of approval.
"British Cojntnb'a may now look for-
ward to ii period of rest, because the
province has now at the bead ol affairs a
man whose interests are greater than
shoae of any other person in the province. It is entirely (0 his interest to
work for the intereste of the province,
and to Btrive to the beat of hit ability
to further ail plana tbat will redound to
the advantage of this grand, glorious,
beautiful bunch of natural reaourcei
known aa Britiib Columbia."
Or words f0 that effect; perbapa not eo
elegantly expressed in tbo peroration,
but the satno story. And so Hon. Mr.
Dunsmuir and his government reigned
in peace and so far as the statistics can
i-liow, with decided advantage to Ihe
Interest! of tbe province. Tha Hon. Mr
Turner went to E: gland and it became
necessary to pit!, a man in bis place al
finance minister. Hon. Mr. Dunsmuir,
ie:nembeiing the excellent lervios rendered by the opposition, and recognizing the sterling ability ol Mr, J. 0.
spirit that had carried him safely
through two years of rule selected that
gentleman for Ihe portfolio.
Then ihe underworld of partyism was
stirred to its malodorous depths. The
heelers saw that such a man ai Mr.
Brewn would never do for them; he
wai not pliable enough; he had too
muoh of the item unyielding Huff in
him which earned Mr, Joseph Martin
tbe implacable haired of every political
trickster in this provincr, The subsidy-
hunters saw their doom if Mr. Blown
entered the cabinet. Bnt more than all
those things, "One Richard McBride"
saw extinguishment lor himself and all
his youthful dreams of honor and power
if bis townsman entered that cabinet.
Tin-it- -jould be no room in the same
oio'n '', liirely in the same province for
two stii-li men aa John C. Brown and
Rich 11J McBride.
Tbe young minister prepared a melodramatic aoeolacle to add to the gaiety
ol nstionr, and after emitting a protest
that reads like a severely-diluted translation ol Kikero'a cratlon against
Catiline, he praccsd down th. front
steps of the Legislature Buildiuga and
out into the cold and rainy world. Many
and many a tims has "one Richard Mc-
Bride" been sorry for that egregious
pieos of foolishness, and longed to bs
back once more in front of the pay office with ths $333 33 gentlemen.
But the spectacle-loving public were
wild with delight at the splendid acting
of the young Roaciua, and    tbe    nobly
natriotio press of the province, which
has always been    euoh   an enormous
credit to British Columbia, (with a few
ahinlig exceptions,) clapped "Dick" oa
the b.ick aud swore he was   a    brick.
Then the lame  press which had, with
grovelling, adulatory phrases and spec'-
ous flattery, hailed the advent ol Hon.
j James Dunsmuir to Ihe premiership,
attacked him and bis ministers with all
the revllemanta of which it is undleput-
ed master.   The "Opposition" press allege, without proof or evidence of any
kind,all manner ol intrigue and sophistry
on ths part.'of the government ;reneirs the
I disgusting and temelesi abuia ef Mr.
Joseph Martin; perverts the truth;.lite
any pickpocket; lies because it dare not
tell the truth, and makes an exhibition
of itself before the Dominion   antl||the
world that forces the love.- oIJBritiih
Columbl 1 to wish that it bad no r rets at
Bnt ths press of British Coombls can
be left to stew ia ila own disgrace .which
baa bun accentuated by the resolution
of the Vancouver, New Weitnsiniter,
Nanaimo and Rossland Liberal Associations' resolution aneot the press—we are
sorry for the people. Tbey are to be
pitied. Rent into innumerable factions,
headed by selfish Incompetent!, each of
whom is madly jsaloui of all the otbeis,
and all actuated not by tbe noble sentiment of ."the greatest good to the greatest number," but by the narrowest,
meanest motives tbat can impel; men,
the people ara like a flock of wandered
sheep, Tbe picture is not sn agreeable
If the present government ;bs not silt
teinad in tha Legislature it will be a
disaster .for British Colnmbia. There
has beei more than a sufficiency of.thli
childish chopping and changing to allow
this, thit or t'other ixperimsnter ts
tr/hishani. Tho present government
il the best this province hil bad lor
many a year; tbe people will ha well advised If tbey sustain it and pay no heed
to the revolutionists who are clamoring

Ancient Greece and her culture gleam
as a light of surpassing brilliancy snd
beauly across the horrid gloom of the
ages which come after tho extinguishment of Grecian civilization. From ail
we know of tbem the Greeks were a
I gay, clever, active race, and It was their
excellent physical training that made
tbem eo. How could it be otherwise
with a people who looked forward to
the Olympian games aa modern people
look forward to divUerd day? Half
the peevishness of present day people
arises from their want of physical training and exercise. We have no gospel cf

thanks to the indomitable rpnit within
which diove the wretched bodies to utmost force throughout their lives, tbey
have left n glorious monument them-
sslves. There was no self-pity, tha
curse of ihe present namby-pamby ago,
in those dauntless wilters. Though
tortured with ceaseless and almost infernal anguish yet tbey strove. Mean
and contemptible the body appeared to
those great spirits alio recounted their
life work and would do it despite physical impediments.
Their history shames the able-bodied
whlners who shrink from exertion for
the sake of a cnt finger or a ebowor of
rain. Still, there can be Utile doubt
that had thoie great men turned a littlo
of their precious time from the grand
labors which absorbed their brains lo
remedying son.o of the defects of body
which they bad inherited, and had aggravated by. tbeir sedentary lives, they
would have dono even better work and
probably more.
It now Btetus unlikely tbat modern
races will ever attain to the lofty level
ol the ancient Greeks iu calture and
the appreciation of the Ihicgs if real
value In this {life,   Our I n-unca   now
goes out to what vie cill "practical,
harl-headed men."   Those persons i or,
orally pride   themselves   upon   their
materialism, and want of anything approaching sentiment.     The accumulation ol great lume of money seems to
be the chief cud of them; all else they
despise.     Place beside  one of those
nraolical modern men wilh ills abnormal acquisitiveness and contempt foi
everything that is not   connected in
some way with making money, a Greek
of tbe time of Pericles; one of those men
who made a religion of physical culture,

the fact that thousands ol yaara after

pasasd Inlo the deeps of oblivion with
all its trumpery, that Greek man wilt bo

sigh to be like him, and try to attain to
something like bis clean-rut physique
and clear thinking?   Tho life of the
Gretkiwas liaiple, not complex and
full of "iiotlotib" as curs is at the present day,    Kverylliing was docided by
argument; fallacies were exposed   by
mean, of cross examination; they copied

Tho petition (in its wisdom) does not
publish the oath and though it is a long

Few livea are more worthy ol romem-

In tho Westminster Review the think*
or will find much upon which* to ponder.
Tliiri, one of the most outspuktm of the
English renews, uml publishes articles
which go very boldly to tho root of tlie
matter, whether it hg the Government's
policy in Soitt-i .Uric;., or orthodoxy.
The lending nrtici) in the December
number is from tho pen of Mr. S. V.
Kerr, who deals with "Tho paradox of
Liberal Imperialism," in a masterful
way, and from the negative Hide. Ilia
argument ia at all uveuts ingeiiioue,
That there's not u little epice, too, may
be gathered from siii-h sentences as:
"And now the unfortunate British
worker is to be called to farther sacrifices; he is to come under the most
hateful and despicable of all tyrannies,
the tyranny of the military man. The
tragedy of iti Here wo have arrived at
a time when all our energies should he

est pi'tt.'--*; when tho proper equipment
of the H.-itiih worker iu all spheres
should ha engaging our most strenuous
attention, our moat watchful care, in
order to cope with the llercu competition
about to assail us; aud wtiat do we find?
A ministry determined 00 crippling
education in order to please n half-educated priestly caste; money being poured
out like wator in order to eoiza a country
which it will hardly pay us to hold on
any terms; and behind, the shadow cf
compulsory military service. The thing
itself is dishearteuing."
Sir Walter S. Cohen advocntes tho ad-
ptioa of the German L.indechaft, or
Provincial Land Bank, aa a meiii.o of
affording aid to the ruined farms of
South Africa, The originator of thin
Land Bank was Frederick tlie Great,
who Introduced it with splendid efftet
at the close of hie wars. |
Mr. Herbert M. Vaughan puts in a
strong plea for an Anglo-French alllnnce
and one Is reminded of the efforts of
Gobden In tti.it direction In reading this
able article. Mr. Vaugiun says that the
German comic preen surpassed the lowest Parisian gutter journals In vilifying
the British during the Doer war, the

Attenborongh. He points out how the
Continental thinkers have done justice
to the gnat work accomplished by thorn
English champions ot freedom of

(simply, tn deal with the criminal In*

tain expert members of the criminal
classes cm do the tierious work of crime;
tho author's idea Ie to hunt thoie doan
