Since tbe publication in The Leader
last week ol some particulars as to tbe
trouble in Chemainus, fresh developments have to he recorded, The Leader's correspondent in Chemainus lends
along the full story this time, and it ie
most interesting, not to say romsnlic.
Who could imagine, he Bays, that this
tranquil, sequestered littlo nook in Ihe
woods, framed in tbe scenery of fairyland, wooed by Ihe cz.ne-laden zepbyn
from tbe gulf, could be the scone of
fierce broils, which threaten to wreck
tbe bapplnets and endanger the reputation of more than one hlghly-cBteemed
Briefly slated the care stands thus—
Dr, Telford, the resident p! ysiclan at
Chemainus General-Hospital, has come
into conflict with Messrs. E. J. I'almer,
postmaster and hospital director, and
Captain Gibson, United Slates Consul
at Chemainus. also a hospital director.
To begirt at tbe beginning:—Dr. Telford was engaged as physician lo the
hospital a couple of years ego, hiB sponsor on the hospital board being Mr.
Hill, wbo Introduced him witb most
glowing eulogies ol a first-class practitioner and a gentleman from head-gear
to shoe roles. For a time all went
happily, and tbe doctor gave complete
satisfaction. One ol his patients was
Mrs. E. J. Palmer, wife ol the postmaster and manager of the Victoria
Lumber Mills and alao director on tbe
hospital board.
Mrs, Palmer had sull'sred for many
years with a most grievous affliction,
supposed to be eczema, which fastened
upnn the upper portion of her cheek.
So great was the (pain of tbls dreadful
disease that tbe unlortunate lady could
scarcely bear tbe light to fall upon it.
The most eminent physicians and specialist in America were consulted in
vain, but ni a cost oi thousands upon
thousands of dollars. No relief could be
obtained for the sufferer, and the case
wae considered to be incurable, Ai a
final experiment a trip to Europe wai
decided upon, and the leading physicians of E linburgb, London and Vienna
were to be consulted.
Dr, Telford then had a look at tbe
case and believed be could t fleet a cure.
Ilia treatment wu perfectly successful.
The tormenting disease disappeared, tbe
f.ce healed up and the patient today ie
enj iviug normal health. Such a feat for
young physician was remarkable
enough, hut the sequel is still more remarkable. It la alleged that Mr.
Palmer hai not paid Ihe .nodical
dnea which are collected monthly
from all employees of the mill from the
manager downward, yet he declined to
pay, It le alio alleged, the bill for (2,600
lent in by D'. Telford a few day. ago
for medical eervicei rendered.
Some months ago, nfter Ihe cure of tbe
Oaia of inppoaed eczema, a coolness bs-
came perceptible between the doctor
and certain members of the directorate
of the hospital. This feeling quickly
ripened into open hostility, and The
Leader ie Informed that ihe relations between the doctor and that portion of the
board have been eiceediugly un pleasant.
Dr. Telford alio tendered medical eervicei to a member ol Captain Glbeon'a
family, Mn. Captain Glbion, It Ib said,
and the other dav be ssnt in a hill to
the Captain Ior (200. The morning
alterwards Dr. Telford was passing

you about it, good morning,
on die way.
Then the JoBepli Piereon case came
Tierson got his arm fractured in tbe
mill while at wort. The dootor duly
aetand dressed it, and next morning had
to go to Victoria. When he returned, on
examining the sore arm lound spreading gangrene had set in. The position
this put tho doctor in wsb this. At 2
p.m. the following day Pierson wcuM
bi a dead man If amputation wes
not resorted to immediately. But ac
cording to medical usage the doctor
must, to protect his own reputation,
call in consultation annther physician; he summoned Dr. Hall, of Victoria, bv telegraph; Dr. Hall could not
be in Chemainus until noon next day;
the gangrene had already spread to tbe
elbow and was swiftly enveloping the
upper arm,
The question wae-Bhould he risk bii
professional reputation and save that
man's life, or let tbe man die decorously
according to professional medical etiquette, and save the dootor'e pbyelcianly
name? Intently watching the terrible
disease deepening its hold on the ml-
ferer'B arm, Dr. Telford eoon made np
his mind; at 2 a. m. he amputa'el
the arm at Ihe middle of the bicepi and
undoubtedly saved Piereon'a life. Dr,
Hall arrived on the noon train next day,
and made eome interesting comments
not unflattering to Dr. Telford's humanity, professional skill, common senss
and courage,
Pierson, also, tbe Leader is informed,
expressed the opinion that Dr. Telford
had saved his life, and warmly praised
the treatment he had received at Dr.
Telford'e hands, saying il he required
medical aid lie would send for Dr,
Pierson has filed a claim against Dr.
Telford in $7,600, alleging negligenre
and malpraotioe. The Medical Protection Association of British Columbia
wlll defend the case on behalf of Dr,
Telford. Naturally enouib, with io
much excitement thrust into bis daily
walk and life, Dr. Telford concluded
tbat something a trifle quieter and
evener than Chemainus would suit him,
and accordingly intimated hit resigns-
Dr. Telford had intended taking a
post graduate course in New York ted
tnese events lessened his ecrrow st
The board passed a slrong i«o-
lution in which Dr. Telford's skill, ability and devotion lo duty, and his manly
character were deservedly acknowledged
and pralssd. Tbe Leader had tbe pleat-
ure of publishing this resolution at the
time, but ii unable to lay whether tbe
Mersri. Palmer and Gibson wei. signatories of the same.
Accordingly Dr. Telford offered sll hii
fnrnlture, and so forth, to the hospital
at a certain sum, A committee cf three
of the Ladies' Auxiliary were appointed
to examine and appraise the articlei.
One of those ladiei, it . ii laid,
after looking over the articlei WSI
ot opinion that they were not worth anything like what Dr. Telford wai liking
Ior them, and consequently, in the interests ol the hospital, advised that they
bi not bought. The other two ladiei
reeerved tbeir opinion until they had
made a Irip to Victoria, wbere they
carefully priced similar articles, and
fonnd that thsy could not he bought for
at least eleven per cent, more than Dr.
Telford was irking. They reported accordingly and, It is understood, tbat a
settlement satisfactory to all parties was
The next chapter in this romance ol a
lumber camp wlll be the trial ol tbe
interesting crop of suits due to the non-
continuance of brotherly iove. The
Leader will watch the easel in tbe intereiti of Ihe public.
Arrival of a Mining Expert Looking
For Propertlos.
Early this week a gentleman representing one of the strongest Engliih
mining syndicates arrived in Ladyemith
and has been making enquiries concerning the local mining clalmi and
prospects. .He li open to purchase uy
likely properties ironnd this section ol
the country. If there is anything worth
purchase ho will look into It and secure
It lor his company at whatever may be
deemed fair figures for all concerned.
This is probably the beginning ol the
activity iu Island mining affair, which
has been prophesied by shrewd obierveti
tor lome time hack, and It may be the
opportunity for many a prospector and
claim-owner to do builnen with Ihe
right tort ol people. The gentleman
will be in Ladyimith for some time.

Wakefield's defence wu that he had

Person, ignorant ol th. political hlitory oi Csnsds within the put five or

Let ns relreih the memory ol onr
reader! on s very important meaiure
thst came before the Home ol Common!
when Mr. Mclnnei was a member.
Ibis was the Comox and Cape Scott
Railwsy charter, once again brought in'
to prominence by tbe impending railway
development ol this Island. On April
Ith, 1900, Mr, Mclnnes moved to have a
Motion inserted in that charter preventing the employment ol Asiatics on tbe
construction and operation ol tbe road.
H. forced the motion to a division, and
on that division Colonel Prior, now
Minister ol Mines lor British Columbia,
and' Mr. Mclnnei were tbe only two
member. Irom British Columbia who
voted yei. Mr. Auliy Morrison voted

itltnmti expected them to do, are now

Naniimo Herald approvei the action
ol tbe Tradei & Labor Council of that
city in tending a delegate to the political
convention to be held at Kamloops on
tbe Uth instant, called by officials oi

Federation oi Miners.    The object cl
tbii convention ie diicloeed very frankly
by Its promoters in a circular letter thus:
To unite and barmonlzs all labor
organizations and reform bodies In the
province for tbe purpose of political
The Herald has olten mide the absurd
assertion tbat it was a labor paper; the
friend and advocate of the labor cause,
authorized to epeak for the organized
workers oi the city and district. Repeatedly we haveexpossd this impudent
claim and shown it to be the holloweit
of BhatnB, pointing out from incontrovertible evidence that tbe Herald was
uot tbe friend of labor, but the pernicious tool oia band of aspiring politicians,
Take the present attitude of the Herald. Is it a friendly thing to advise organized labor to mix itseli up with the
abomination called politics in thia
province? Experience teaches fools, it Ib
said, and if it does not teach the Herald
tbe danger of such experiments as it has
been making that piper ia beyond redemption.
Even tbe Herald might see that it ie
very dangerous for tradeB unions to enter the political arena as a separate
party; it is not the wish oi the majority
of the labor men of Nanaimo tbat they
should do BO. The circular letter from
which we have quoted was introduced
at a meeting ol Nanaimo Miners' Union,
diicuued and unanimously rejected;
they wonld have nothing to do with it.
The miners believed it was not in the
intereiti oi labor tbat party politician!
Ihould be admitted,
Yet, the Nanaimo Trades and Labor
Council in its wisdom saw fit to take the
opposite view. How is this council constituted and bow many members does it
represent? We understand that it is
composed ot three delegates from each
trade and labor organization in the city
or 18 delegates in all, representing between 700 and 800 members; tbe three
dslegatee Irom the Miners' Union rep
resent about 700 members; tbe other
16 delegatee probably leas than 76, Tbe
delegates repieeenting the Miners' Union had specific instructions to vote
againit tbe proposed action. Yet the
delegatel representing a mere fraction ct
Ihe organized labor ol Nanaimo undertook to commit tbe whole body to the
policy ol becoming a political party. In
other words, the tall is wagging the dog.
Instead ol unity at that convention
tbii wlll create division; Instead of harmony there will bo discord. Tbe unity
of labor will be but an empty phrase so
long ai the member! allow themselves
to be split up iuto factions to satisfy the
ambitions of tbe individual. How clearly this was shown at the last Dominion
election in the case of Balph Smith and
tbe Nanaimo MinerB1 Union, which was
practically torn in two. It Is exceeding'
ly doubtful If it ever regain its unity
again, Mr. Smith tried to nis the meni-
berehip for hia own endi. He ii tbe
mm who disrupted one ol the strongest
unions in the province.
In all labor organization! are men ol
varying political opinions, aa irrecon
citable as fire ud water, and be who attempt! to bring tbii warring, jangling
mm into birmony and unity is either
knave or fool, and decidedly not the

Iriendi of the agriculturist and fruit
grower, and ior that purpose appointed
a committee. This committee met tit
msmbers of the Central Farmer's Institute in Victoria in December, 1000,
and discussed the matter with them
The Central Farmer's Institute then appointed a Committee, wbo brought in«
report to tbe following. fleet:
" We beg to submit the following list
ol birds which, in our opinion, it will 11
life to introduce into the province, via
Skylark, Goldfinch, Robin (red breait)

large number of each speciee to enable
the society to liberate sufluent birds,
both on tbe Maiuland and on the Island
at suitable points, to insure their certain and speedy propagation and itill
retain a eufSciont number iu breeding

been taken in the ecloctlon to eee that
no destructive species aro introduced,
but only those khown to ho oi service to
the agriculturalist and the horticulturist

liberally and promptly ob the committee ie anxious to procure the birds as
soon as possible.

Time Saving Method* Havo Incrviix-
ed the Opportunities of Woiuen For
Self Advancement nnd For Truln-
liiic Their Children.
A glance down the century will convince us of the many advantages mothers
have today that were unheard of less
than a hundred -* yes, fifty —- years ago.
We hold In veneration the days of homespun cloth and patchwork quilt, and so
we should. They wero a necessary and
important step In our evolution, hut I
emmet help thinking at times that women
developed more slowly than men ln methods of work.
Wo hold In reverence the way mother
used to do the work, regardless of modern and time saving methods, not taking
Iuto consideration the days In which we
live. We do not take kindly to "tho survival of the fittest." Iu these rushing
times tho chief hindrance to mankind
seems to he the lack of time. Anything
to save tlmo is hy men, and should he hy
women, hailed with delight. It will astonish oue who has never tried it to keep
an account of tho minutes, sometimes
hours, that may he saved iu one day.
Let me mention a few suggestive "time
savers," or, to use a more high sounding
term, methods of domestic economy,
nbout which we are hearing so much.
Understand that I nut uot asking you to
lower your standard of housekeeping. I
only ask for a little more time for home-
keeping. Be elenu nud orderly nnd tench
jour children to ho clean nud orderly (as
you can), hut don't be orderly for them.
Cook plenty of good, nourishing food,
nnd cook it just ns well ns you can learn
how, but don't serve a sample of everything the pantry aud cellar contnin every
meal lu tho week. Itnther a small variety than too great a one, I beard a
physician say, after having prescribed for
three cases of indigestion in rapid succession, "More people cat themselves to
death than starve to death."
Next to the food question comes that of
clothing for tho children. I mn not certain, though, hut that some people put the
cure of the furniture nnd the iloor before
either. Clothe tho children sensibly, use
modem styles (remember, I said sensibly,
first), but don't tnck ou useless frills,
I'uftles, etc., for the sake of putting about
ho much ou each garment. Itnther see
thnt the ends of threads aro neatly fastened and trimmed. Uo well, hut do not
Recall some of the methods and Inventions of the century, as sewing machines-, .
then think of the time thus saved. The
factory Is the greatest time saver to woman. Think what time is saved by tlio
cheese factory, tbe bakery, the canning
factory, the woolen mills, the cotton
mills, ready made clothing of all kinds,
etc., work our grandmothers were compelled to perform.
Now that we havo time, how should the
modern mother uso it? My plan is. first,
personal improvement. Read, Keep up
with current events. Learn something
of lending political Issues of the day.
Who was elected United Stales senator
this week? How would we havo voted?
Learn something of tbe lending men-- j
their work aud their characters.
Take time to .sympathize with citizens
of sister nations nud of our own ns well,
whom the fortunes of war may hnve bereft. How can wo instill better methods
for settling national dilllcultles into the
minds of our child rep? Surely we do not
want to offer them up, some years hence,
as means to settle a national difference.
Rend, think, and glvo your children—yon,
the world—the benefit of your thought.
Most great man havo hud great mothers. They may not have been known to
fame, hut In their modest way tbey have
done n great nud noble work. Nolo tbo
power behind the throne in Garfield's life.
What tenderness we felt for our president wben "Grandmother McKiuley"
went home!
These aro a few of tho privileges of our
own day. Do we use them? You can't
find time, to rend? Let mo suggest a few
iuora ways of economizing your time.
Don't Iron every old rag iu the washing.
I onco heard a W. C. T. U. Bister say: "I
used to scrub every walk on tbo premises
onco a week. Now I sweep them, and
Instead of ironing each aud every dish
towel I fold tbem nil neatly, lay tbem on
a chair, sit on them nnd read my Union
Signal." She, however, weighed mora
than I do.
Set aside a time for yourself, sny, nfter
sappF-V tuck the babies in bed and put
your war!* aside promptly nt 7 or 7:30
o'clock, then i-ehd. A glnnco nt the headlines or features ot (Mich page will save
you tlmo. Don't try to wad everything
In a paper. That would bo almost as bad
ns not to read at nil. Dallies done, you
havo tlmo for study. Too tired to study?
Try taking a fow pages of somo standard
book to rest you. If you havo nothing
mora important, read tbo school library
books so you can talk about them with
the children. As you go about your daily
tasks your mind can assimilate what you
havo read tho preceding day.—-Louisa
.Wales Bennett ln Housekeeper.
f-Venoh Joe Tied the Knot, nud II*
Did It In Rhyme.
Wild and romantic as any highland
legend or border story is tbo account of
tlie first contract marriage in Iho Interior of Alaska, ns narrated by "Windy
Jim'' Dodson, who was present and witnessed the unique ceremony.
It was on the hanks of Iho Dull river,
a small stream which Hows into the Yu-
: kou near Fort Hunillu.   A young man,
Glllia by name, accompanied hy Aggie
I Dal toil, a charming mrildeu with whom
be was In love, bud set nut from the
month of DiiU river lo go across tlie
mountainous divide into the Koyuktlk
valley.   As tbey started up the Dnll they
met Dodsoil, nud In the course of conver-
, .gallon it developed that the young people
were anxious to get married, but in that
wilderness there was small clianeo of
finding either priest or magistrate to per*
form the ceremony.
"i know a man who can tie tho knot,"
Mid Dodson, "und he lives only a few
miles from here. Ills name is Joo Du-
rant, hut everybody knows him hy the
nickname of 'Preach Joe.' "
To yearning hearts and youthful vigor
a few miles in that vast solitude was as
nothing, and they were soon at Dunint's
place. Dodson went with (hem as guide
nud witness. Tho spot was one just tit
for such romantic nuptials. It was on a
wild, mountainous slope, by the side of n
clear lake and under the shelter of a
friendly tree whose evergreen branches
delicti the chill November winds.
Duratit gladly agreed to perform tha
pleasant task, but as he hud no law form
or church rituals nt hand he devised a
form of his own and put it into rude
rhyme, having the bride and groom each
repent four lines nfter* him.
The bride repented the following:

Veiled Women In Egypt,
Tho tasmak, or veil, may be black or
white, long or short, plain or embellished
with rows of drawn work or tucks nml of
any sort of fine, soft material. Tho women of tho middle nml lower classes
wear for tho most part black veils from
ono to three feet long; tbo.se higher in tbo
social grado wear white ones, and occasionally they reach to tbo hem of tlm
dress, Theso nro held tn place hy n

this linbnrn in the orthodox' fashion,

The fact that tho golf tournament system promotes healthy, normal exercise,

Into robust, happy creatures, seems to nr-

however, havo been mado thnt tournaments provoko jealousies, enmities and
cheating, that they harden a weman unduly and that thoy aro breaking up tho
