everywhere - evident. Even the. movements of his lips as'he, chaffed Burns
are visible.
Still it was the concensus of opinion that the fight was a-most wretched affair from every standpoint. It
is believed th.^t it would not have
gone more than ten rounds in England, owing to the constant clinging
and holding. : Contrary to reports,
from Australia, Johnscn did not

night a number of-the men belonging
to this ship came in to Ladysmith,
anh after; they had sampled the particular, brand of rifjiiior sold at the local bars they proceeded to engage in
a series, of fist battles, which, the-/l-
flcers of tlie law regarded as a'menace to the morals and well->being- of
local society.
As a result three of the men were
gathered in by the police, and the
others were ordered to conduct themselves as b«camc peaceable mei&s <>•
Perhaps they took this friendly ad-,
vice to heart and agiiin they, may not
have done so. in any event, while
the three who were arrested were
waiting, their trial before Magistrates
Nicholson and Matheson at the city
hall Monday night, a number ol the

big fellow named Ericksson was de.
cidedly under the influence of liquor.
He sprawled ;over the floor, • ana; in
doing so broke a pipe . belonging to
Constable Cassidy and used language
to that officer that could, not by
strelcVof rules be construed as parliamentary. This provoked: ConstaMd
Oessidy's wrath, and he pushed the
Qflcndcr over on the floor. .
Then' Ericksson, without waiting
for the count came back and made a
pass at Joe Smith! Joe sidestep,

stomach at the same time giving him

Then Magistrate Nicholson tor the

robes and caught Krichsson by the
wrists pinning him down to the tabic, when Constables Callcndcr and
Cassidy rushed lira belligerent seaman to thc stairway and the three
rolled down thc steps together, but
fortunately no one was hurt.
While the battle wan raging fiercest und able-bodied men were falling
in all directions, Magistrate Matheson remained calm and dignified. With
wonderful presence of mind he went
over to the drawer where the lawbooks are kept, and made a hurried
search for a copy of the riot act, but
fortunately the reading of it was
found to be unnecessary .
Ericksson was locked up for the
night, and two of tho offenders were
fined $10 and costs each. A third
entered into a wordy dispute with the
magistrates, and in response to the
question if he believed ho would not
get justice, replied that that was
just about how he felt.
It was observable that he was under lhe influence of liquor, and he
was' remanded until Tuesday night,
when he was again brought before
the .magistrates and fined $li*> and
Ericksson, who had committed the
disturbance in the court room, also
came up at the same time, and was

all paid without a murmur.
Merits of Septic
Tanks Discussed
After tho regular meeting ot the
city city council Monday evening,
there was a long conference between
(lie Board of Aldermen and the delegates appointed ,|by the Citizens' League to discuss the question of septic tanks. The mayor and aldermen
were very fran': in dealing with the
delegation, and expressed themselves
very anxious to solve tha problem in
the,bcst;interests of the city.
Tho mayor and several of the aldeirf
men stated that they had always bcejl
in favor of having thc sewer pipes
running out into thc bay below low
water mark, and that they had only
changed their opinion when what
seemed to be satisfactory objections
had been urged hy Mr. Mohun. Even
yet they Would like to do away with
theseptic tank providing the other
method were found to   'be the best.
The greatest oiifectioniadvauced by
Mr. Mohpn was that the returning, tide
might deposit tbe sewerage on the
hanks and thus lead to a conflict with''
the Board of Health authorities.
There were other objections urged,
but this seemed to be the one that
carried with it the predominant argument in favor of the- septic tan';.    .
The delegation were supplied with
blue prints of the plans of thc sewers, and spent several hours with' tha
council in   making careful examuia-

at which thc sewerage will be discharged into- the bay. At the point
whero the septic tank discharge plpo

It came out in the course of tho
discussion that thc first plans prc-
tarcd by Mr. Mohun were for a
straight pipe into,the bay at a point
near Harrap's hoathouse,. but after
careful Investigation as to the cost,
ha tame to the conclusion that the
septic tank was more economical for
the reason that it would necessitate
a great deal of rock blasting to take
the pipe to that location.
The argument against this by- the
delegation was that i 10-inch pipe
could he placed in the same line as
tho survey calls for the 4-iacb, cast
iron outlet of the septic tank, Ttct
would save the entire cost of the septic tank, for which there would te
no need.
While no definite_conn'iision was
reached as to whet would be done, it
is quite possiblo that an independent
engineer will bo asked Ior an opinion.

Editorial Comment
It is learned   that   thc Dominion
The Colonist thinks that Mr. Stuart
Henderson's observations in thc le:y
islaturn in regard to the choice ot a
site of the University were more
creditable to his ingenuity than to
his statesmanship. It may bo right
to nuke a point against a political
opponent, but it is a great mistake
fc-r Mr. Henderson to introduce sectionalism into a question oi this
kind. He knows quito well that the
object of tho citizens ol Victoria, in
asking for the appointment of a commission to select tho University site,
was to secure th« best results and to
remove this very, important question
out of the political field. It wouhtyt*
an unfortunate thing tor the educational system ot British Columbia il
the. location of tho University, and
all that is implied therein, depended
upon whether the members for Victoria or those from Vancouver had
the strongest political "pull."

many more men than usual havo been
eating sweets since Her late Mriesty,
Quern Victoria urged the army to
eat chocolates and jams. In Germany and France, where beer and wines
arc indulged in, little sugar is consumed. In Great Britain a great
many less hard drinks are consumed
i,nd more sugar. Australia is the
most temperate of the colonics.
There 12'J pounds per head ot sugar
is consumed; in tbe United States 8i>
pounds; in Canada 81 pounds, with a
rapidly increasing, ratio in favor of
sugars, jams and jellied sweets.
There has been an increase of two
and a half million pounds sterling in
sugar import rnvenucs inter Britain
since 1902. In Canada the increase
in sugar has not been compared with
thc Import of intoxicants. The latter
show great gains in late years; but
the revenues therefrom have not
grown since 190", while sugr,r imports have slightly increased. British
physicians say Uiiat a diet ol sweets

stimulants, including ten, cotfoc and
cocoa. "    ■'.-

lo increase the revenue by this and
other methods. Thc smallpox epidemic and budi fire visitation uf last
year resulted in a heavy liability,

Ernest Reyer Had
a Ready Wit
The reputation of Ernest Reyer,
who died two weeks ago at Lavan-
don, in thc Var, rests only on two
works—his operas Sigurd and Sal;
nmmbo. lie was for a long time a
his own country. Neither Sigurd nor,
Salammluo was performed in Paris
till other countries had applauded it.
In appearance Reyer was anything
bttf a typical musician. With his
heavy moustache, military bearing,
and commanding ,voice he seemed
rather 'like a retired soldier. Mis
tastes were of thc simplest. Ho speni. 'ei.
part of his time in the, fishing village of KSVandon, and in   the sum-
cut, lie found the ..house in a state1 of,
much excitement. The young'composer's wifsj hud just Riven tirth to
twins, and Reyer was invited lo see
them. Ho regarded the tiny mites
carefully, and then murmured,
"Charming, which arc you going to
A young composer with more ambition than talent brought two of his
pieces to play over to Reyer, He
played one.
"What do you think of. that?" ashed the compoier."    -
"1 prefer thc other," was the laconic reply.
At a rehearsal Once, a youn;iisinge$
sang an aria from Sigurd. She madj
some mistakes, and when she had
finished she said:
"Oh, master, 1 was so afraid:"
"And what about mc?" purred Ro"y4

a little brusque, and'sometimes a victim of'his desire to say smart I tings,

A rival, after hearing one of Revel's works, observed that "it wns
full of ideas, but . as ragged as a
scarecrow," It so happened that a
little while afterwards the critic had
a work pcrlormcd. Rcycr maliciously quoted the anecdote, and added; "1
will not pass this reproach on the
opera of M. X. . . ; it is admirably
written." „
One of his firmest friends was Mad
auic Huso Caron, in whom he found
his best Interpreter. It is related
that years and years ago Reyer was
playing over an important work, pui
was disturbed by a little girl's cries
below,. "Can't it be kept quiet?"
cried Rcycr. "Can't somebody sit
en it?" "It" was Rose Caron.
