AN APOLOGY WANTED
Another Echo of The Excitement at
The Big Fire.
It has been hinted to The Leader tbit
an apology is dne from it to the persons
who stonned Mr. P. H, Marshall's residence on Sunday morning on tbe occas-
ion of the fire, for the severity of tbe
it-niaike published in The Leader in
iinuienting on tbe conduct of those
trsons,
The position ie very simple. Tbere
were twy parties (1) Thoae wbo went
(here to help, and (2) those who went
there to plunder. To the former The
Leader owes no apology, and they btve
been handsomely thanked, as they deserved to be, through the usual medium
' an advertised card ot thanks in then
.In in nn,  Tlie other party are invited

the greatest pleasure in life in banding
"leui personally over to the police.
When people are eo desperately anxious about othor people's property thtt
thoy smisli in bark doois, lay violtnt
hands upon tht lady of Ibt house, chop
the hot water connections of the kitchen
stove and tho bath wiih aiea, throw
costly piano lamps from the porch over
tbe embankment, wiencb valuable pictures clean out of their frames, and
carry on like the Firet of April in a
luuatie asylum, The Lesder 1s of opinion
that the proper argument it (or Ibt gentlemen of tbe bouse to defend their
properly and themselves witb whatevtr
weapons come handiest at tbe moment,
it is useless to attempt explanation! of
tlie disgraceful conduct of those bandit!
who committed the depredations in tbe
Marshall residence during the (ire, but
it is exceedingly unfortunate that none
>f them was recognised, because lt wat
i clear case lor the criminal court,
Tiie Leader learnt with satisfaction
that Mr. and Mis. Manhall havt recovered a large number oi their valuables, the only things now milting being
small articles, which, however, may
c-me lo later.

On Saturday evening laet in the pavilion tba two Ladysmltb baekclbali
.earns, seniors and intermediates, defeated with comparative ease the two similar teams from Nanaimo. Tbe tcorei
were, seniore 16 to 1-1 in favor of the
home team. ThiB was a pretty game;
very last and at times looked as if it
would break even. Ladysmith seniors
have improved greatly of late, and can
do some excellent work.
The intermediate game was somewhat
of a walk-over for the borne men, who
won with a score ol IS lo 4. The visitors
were not, of course, faoiiliar with tbe
hall, and found one or two things tn
buther them, hut on the whole the best
teams won.
During tbe matches the Ladysmitli
band playrd enjoyable selections. After

lasted onlilm'diiiebt, tbe hand providing

For, look you, Oanidtint, supposing

into tbt State ol Washington and told a
large audience oi American citizens, a
very large proportion ol whom admired
and lupported the object ol bit attack,
that tha man whom tbey looked npon is

Everybody has heard the Btory oi the
big ball in Dublin where the hostess
was much distressed to observe that the
gorgeously-attired officers ol the Tenth
Hussars were not dancing. She went
up to the Colonel, so the Itory goes, and
asked bim to join the throng In tripping the light fantastic toe, and also lo
invite his officers to doso. The Colonel,
"a h'arbitary gent" seemingly, replied
with aristocratic bauteur, which no
doobt nearly choked him, "Aw, thatike,
the Tenth don't dawnce."
"Then," replied tbe witty hostess in a
moment, "thou perhaps the Tenth can
walk," nt the eame time pointing lo Ihe
door ol the salon. And the legend sayB
that the Tenth did walk.
That was long ago, hut it would appear Irom preeent day statistics and
comparison of notes tbat there hai been
a great deal ol recruiting lor the Tenth,
lor Irom all quarter! comet the wail ol
the distracted hostess wbo declares,
with tears, that the young men are not
dancing aa tbey used to. Why? There's
the rub. All aortt ol solutions are offer,
ed, but the real cause of the disinclination ol the gilded youth, and even ol Ihe
tort witlinut the.gliding, is as bard to
find as ever.
One will observe at social function!
where dancing ia one of tbe maiu cards,
that more end more men "wallflower,"
to coin a convenient term for the occasion. At one function lately, not a bun.
dred miles from Iaulysmlth.il is an actual iact that nearly all the young fellows could not, or would not dance, and
the ladies bad to (all back on the old
boys, who bai learned in their yontb
and were well able to lave the eituatiou,
Is it because the youog follows think
the dance beneath their dignity, and
that it looks too much like cbild'a play
to go bobbing or whirling np and down
room? Or are onr young men growing too serious with tbe burden ol mod
ern life and ite constant strain oi intense
competition?
Whatever lt is society it confronted
with a grave situation, lor it is becoming harder tban ever to fill programmes,
owing to tbe ignorance ol dancing or un-
willlngnesB oi the young meu to join in
lhe dance.
Ladysmith Merchants Make a Brave
Display This Year.
Ail who remember the sort of place
Ladysmith wae a year ago will best appreciate the wonderful change which
has taken place, and the remarkable
contrast presented between this year's
Christmas dlsplayB and those of a year
ago. There are many more stores, and
the eshibits of gouilB are far ahead of
wbat tbey wero then. Io (act Lady

01 course, the Leader's advertiiera,
being tbe most enterprising and modern
amongst the town'e merchant community, are far in the lead in IlilB matter,
and thoir places ol business are well
worth the attention ol the chopper today and tonight, The Leader has, with
a good deal of pleasure, jotted down a
lew notes ol the Christmas shows of
thoae thriving and np-lo-date establishments, and hopes'; that those (Irma will
reap a rich reward lor tholr admirable
efforts to* please the, pnblio and make

Indomitable energy with which this

disastrous fiie tbe firm were into temporary premises, ready, or almost ready
to greet their numerous customers with
the old-time courtesy and attention
which have ever:marked the dealings of
this representative business establish
ment with the public. By Monday
morning, by dint of good hard work,
Messrs. 1-elser's staff were ready (o re-
sume duty almost un the old Bland, and
with a (reeh stock ol high-olasa grocer'
ieo, dry goodi and otber Btaples carried

are rallying round them again, and the
prospects are, that, in spito ol the lessen

Mr Simon Leiser, bead ol tbe firm ol
Leiser & Co. Ltd., was In Ladysmith
a day or two ago, and in reply to questions Irom The Loader said, the firm
wonld proceed with all despatch to erect
a building even larger and in many wayi
more commodious and convenient tban
the line block recently destroyed. Mr
Leiser would not eay whether It would
lie in brick, or a Irame structure Una its
predecessor but The Leader haa lince
learned that there ia n strong probability
that brick will be the material. Also
that the new itore and warehouse will
probably be three stories In height, and
the windows provided with fire-proof
shutters and partition doors ot iron.

The Musical Festival..
The Liquor Question.
Mr. G. Morton Walker ol First Presbyterian ohurch preached on tlie liquor
question at it affect! Ladyimllh, last
Sundiy night, to a crowded houso. Much
interest wae shown by the audience, as
tbe preacher iu bold unequivocal teims
condemned the state ol things existing
here and in other places in Ibis province.
He presented a number of strong arguments for not signing the petition! for
license, and declared that so many liquor
shops in a place amounted tot very serious political menace; the people would
be powerless lo cope with the evil
through the proper channels unless they
were uartful. He quoted Lord Rosebery
who said tbat 11 the slate did not Boon
control Ibe liquor traffic the liquor traffic would loon control lhe state.
Mr IVi.lker also pointed ont tbat the
bludgeon was used lo compel people to
sign: 'sign or it will go hard with your
business"; "lign or we'll see that you
don't get toy work," etc Llqnor sel.
ling wat a mere extra lo hotel keeplns;
it was net neceisary; the hotel keeper
had hia work Justus the miner had hie
to attend to; in tbo one case tbe getting
out tlie minerals; in tho other tho an
ooiiimodatiou ol travellers ur boarders Ha
quoted the late Rt Hon IV. li. Gladstone
tbat publicans were nnt goed'lor the revenue ; "with a sober population, saving
tbeir earnings, I shall know whtre to
get my revenue." Mr. Walker cited a
mass of facts and figures to fortify hll
pneliion, and read lhe moral tnd religions lesson oi it ill with powerful tfleol.
He idjured bis bearers to tbink whit
they were doing In signing petitions it
tht bidding of persons who were, unworthy ol consideration; it might bt
like signing the death warrant nf ■
wbola family
A stirring tnd interesting address was
concluded with a strong appeal to all to
be true to themselves.
