Council have received the endotsu
tion of Che Citizens' League, including Mr.' Matheson" ai present the
only* representative of tho East
Ward. They' have all pledged themselves to V platform which includes
such important und progressive men
sures ns a lighting and a sewerage
system. ' 'These i&odges have been
given the'funcst' publicity, nnd tho
platform was widely advertised. The
'election ^6f these candidates is practically a mandate to the Council tp
go ahead with these measures of improvement.' If inii'y reasonably be
taken td'Wcan^hat the pooplo of
Ladysmith' aro in favor of,tho instnl
latlon of a 'lignting and of a sew
erage system.
All this is so much to the good
It is an advantage, which no other
Council in Ladysmith lias enjoyed.
First of all thero is lho confidence of
the electorate. It is no argument
to suy that only so many out of a
iluiy qualified number registered thoir
votes. The men wbo did vote nre
tho only mon who nro interested In
tho city, anxious .as._to Its proper
government, and desirous of seeing
Its progress." It is this class of
citizens who nre behind . the now
council, who nave given to the new
Mayor and Aldermen their confidence
Further than . that_ they haw expressed their approval of progressive
measures. They have shown thnt
they arc olive io .tho floods of the
town, thnt thov realize thnt on them
selves depends,,th&.improvement of
the city. ,,Thp,y, have signified tlioir
approval pf, tho platform on'whicu
the Council sought office, and oiven'
it their authority to.proceed with
tho contemplated measures.
It is not for us at this early stage
to indicate ' what, •* ■ the. first, and
plain duty '"ol! the Council', It can
be trusted to" discharge ail its obli
gations and redeem all Its pledges.
At any rate it. will bo tho easiest
tiling in the wWra" to kee^a chock
on it. What we would say to the'
voter*sv*who Have .placed''the Council
in power Is Hot to expect too much
all ~5X once. The installation of a I
lighting system is a big question.
So also is the laying down of a sewerage system. .. .They, both requirei

fully seventy minutes of the giuno,
hold the upper hand, and that thoir
ono goal load at this stago of tho
game was the result of sujiorlor
play. All'this Is as it.should bo;
but the Free Press raises ono or two
points which cannot bo allowed to
go unchallenged.
Thoro wns an unpleasant Incident
occurred in the gamo on Saturday.
Tho Standard sporting man has always'found it bettor in tho truo interests of sport to ignore such incidents. Any player in" a hotly contested gamo, .is liable to toso his
temper. But goneruliy it is over In
a minute, and everybody wants to
forgot all about It. The Herald
man was clearly of tho same opinion
for ho also did not mention the Incident.
Tho Free Press goes around it in
another wa/i ' in" its V'opor't of' the
game It says:
"Thoro was a roughness about
their (Ladysmith) tactics from tho
outsot, an unmistakable sign ot unnecessary vigor that was Intended to
scare tho local players, that soon1
brought matters' to a crisis. No

•Saturday, ho has nover seen a cleaner game of one with so littio rough
play. . Where -did the unnoccssury
vlgoi- como In, and how does Morrison figure In It. Arthur was playing contro half, and was nover near
Bradshaw. As for Sanderson, ho
would havo given something to get
near Brndshaw, but as lt was, ho
was little more than a striped supporter, Aguin, while deprecating
dangerous charging and unnecessary
roughness, fuutliull is not a parlor
gamo. Alsu bo it said that neither
Graham nor Hewitt use' parlor methods, and can bo doponded on to
look after themselves. Certainly it
Is no tribute to their staunchness,
or the intelligence of tho Ladysmitli
mon to talk of scare methods. To
ttnish with this point, it is only necessary to say that -the locals went
up to play the gamo and will it if
thoy could.
Now we como to a QUostlon of
fact. Adam Jumped at Bradshaw.
A minute after tho occurrence the
Stundard ninn was told iu all seriousness that Jimmy flrst of all

man with three other waifs In

"Your suspicion is natural, but unfounded," the tramp explained politely.   "Hero aro my pnpers."
He handed over a bank draft for

have boen once a prosperous manufacturer-and mayor of a community.
Then, with a..communicativeness begotten of champagne, ho explained
how, at tho height of his prosperity
yonrs before, ho had been deceived
by his wife, whom he adored, Turning his projierty into money and so
investing it ns to insure himself a
handsome income, ho disappeared,
taking to the public road. For two
decades-he had lived, cut off from

There was a slight hitch In the
work i of removing bodies from tlio
morguos through tho action oi Coroner Strassor forbidding tho removal of any bodies during his absence.
This wns due to a mix-up in Identification of tlie body of a boy.
There were three claimants for tho
body ond all appealed to tlio coroner for permission to remove it. Each
one was positive the body was the
one they wore looking for, therefore,
in order to prevent mistake, the coroner issued the order. When it was
explained that people who had positively identified thoir doad wanted
the remains and that thoso in dispute would bo held the coronet" rescinded his order.
Since then thb'rollof committee,
working- in conjunction with the relatives, has removed more than lifty
bodies  from the morgues.
Moro than sixty douth certificates
wero issued up to 10 a.m. and more
of theso bodies will bo buried during
tho day, most of thorn without any
funeral ceremonies. There is not a
clergyman in tho town able to conduct services. There will be no
service in tho Lutheran church Sunday, Tho Rev. Adam Weber, who
lost a  daughtor, is still prostrated.

work of Identification was again taken up. It is believed that more
than fifty bodies will never bo Identified.

Tho reduction was auUciptilcd us tho
fresh gold arrives, must of which
was absorbed by the bank, and the
return uf cash to the country,
materially strengthened tho reserves
in tho metal, In spite of the considerable amount taken by South America, that there was no excuse for
a further protection of the higher
rate, which has so. discommoded finance for some months past.
Even had the bank desired'io retain a higher rate, it is doubtful if
it could be . mado effective, as the
supply of money in Lombard street
is abundant as to be almost for the

Tho discount rato in tho opon market fell to 41i por cent, the recent
continental purchases of sterling

the gold borrowed from France during tho American stringency would
be allowed to remain for a time

Thero is a report down here that
no fewer than .100 men havo . boen
laid ofl at tho Nanaimo mines. Tho
story Is that 125 men hnvo bcon
shut out at Protection, and 175 at
Hrccliln. nnd it would appear that n
general slump is overtaking theconl
trade. The large local trade of the-
Extension minos should prevent Ladysmitli from suffering from tho depression.
Tho death occurred in Nanaimo on
Wednesday, after n year's illness, of
Joseph IMeAIonoy, internnl inland
revenue officer.
He was a native of Sprlnghlll N.
S., and wns 53,years of age. He
came to Nanalmtt' ln 1887 together
with Arthur Wilson,' now commla-
sioner in the Yukon, just after the
explosion. His wife followod him
six months later, nnd for somo yenra'
ho occupied responsible positions In
the mines. After meeting with an
accident which crippled one of his
arms, he was appointed Internal revenue oflicer In 1898.
The deceased was a member of
the KnigKls of Pythias. Tho funei*-
