GINGENTLEMANLY
CONDUCT
Mr. J. G. Brown Stoops to Dishonorable Tactics to Stir Up
Dead Controversy,    "
Tho dilTeron-. lietween profession
and practico is very often aa great
as the difference between night and
day. Of courso, it is not given to
many of us to be as good .is wo
could wish, but thut is certainly no
reuson for anyone to profess to bo
heaps botter than ho is.
Of all the games Hint were played
by tlie football boys last iiuiiHun,
thero was only ono that gave r sito any trouble. That was tho match
which was reforeed ny .M *. .'. (I
Brown. There was novor any doubt
ovon if ono took tho most charltnbie
view of tho incident, that Mr. -troAn
mado a most ogi-ogious blunder, It
was so Imd that many who fii\\*t it
wanted to characterise it as something worse thnn a blunder, t.ud
that opinion they still hold to this
day.
I myself took tho moro charitable
vlow of tho matter and refused tn
impute niotives. I was actuated in
this as much by Mr. Brown's groat
reputation as much ns anything olse.
I argued that a gentleman in Ms position in Island and Provincial sport
might make a mistake, but could
never stoop to crookedness. I will
novor arguo thut way again for ron-
sons which I urn going to mako very
plain. Mr. Brown can profess to be
what ho likes, hut he is no gentleman ntul only a spurious imitation
of a sportsman.
As everybody knows tho Colobra*
tion Committee endeavored to got
some of tho boys irom the .Y.M.C.A
and J.n.-A.A. clubs to come up here
for the First. Tt is now ancient history that tlie boys refused to come
because ther wero afraid of losing
thoir amateur status. The whole
quostion was taken up in this column and wns explained as clearly us
I could do it. There had been mis-
apprehension on both sides mul some
thing else perhaps which it would
not bo wise to put u name to. How
over, thero was nover auy loss of
temper or good feeling, and, while
thoro might bo some differences of
opinion, it novor took on othor than
a friendly expression.
The whole thing was dead aud
gone—at least we uk hero thought
\to. I had a lottor from Mr. 1.). 11,
Crompton, dated Victoria, duly 8th*
1008, in which he stntes: "We have
dropped the matter feeling that past
events cannot be mended." That, of
courso, represents tho position of tho
Y.M.C.A., but ia the sentence preceding, ho says: "J. O. Brown is vory
mucj^jntero-tcd in our rccont mix-
up, and vory soon, I believe, you will
hoar from him." ,
Just a word of explanation. Tho
"mix-up" reforrod to by Mr. Crompton, is some correspondence of a
controvorsial naturo thnt hud passed
between him nnd mo. I -wroto to
Mr. Crompton on the suggestion of
.T. G. Brown. My first letter, although it was not written on any
instructions, may be regarded as se-
mi-ofllcial. The next two uro personal letters, purely ond simply and
in parts confidential. Thoy were never intended for publication nnd no
ono reading them can possibly argue
thnt thoy wero writton ou behalf or
under the instructions of a committee, and therefore were to bo regarded nnd treated as official communications,
Accordingly, T replied to Mr. Crom
pton nbd told him tlmt Mr. Brown
had nothing to do with our ' "mix-
up," and thnt I refused to allow him
to interfere. Well, I never heard
from tho urbane .1. 0., but In Monday's "Times" I road that he had
minded to tho sporting editor of
thnt journal tho correspondence
which put* tod between tho locnl pooplo and tho committoo at ..iidysnilth
with a re (uost thnt tho snme be published in justification of the local
amateurs nnd the stand taken by
them. The "Times" refused to grant
his request, ostensibly because of tho
spneo tho correspondence would require, hut really becauso they know
that nothing warranted its publication.
Howovor, J.0, is nothing if not
pertiniicoous, nnd on Tucsduy tho
whole thing wus published in the
Colonist. There Is mi mention of
Mr. Brown, however, It is tho Y.M.
C.A., that is doing it nnd the moving reason is that so much adverse
comment has been passed in tho
Standard on tho position taken up
by the Victoria athletes. Of course,
the introduction Is tho work of Mr.
Ilrown and he takes good enro to
conceal lho fact, Had it not been
for thu stntemont in thu "Times"
and tho hint in Mr. Crompton's letter, I might hnve been wondering
yot who was the author of such a
mean, contemptible piece of work,
Still, I hardly know. A process of
diminution would have speedily led
mo to J, Q. Wo all saw hore tho
evening of tho mutch with tho Y.M.
O.A., the childish lengths to which
a setiBe of oulra.o-i dignity- will carry him. And It Is possiblo that a
similar spasm has curried him unthinkingly to theso tactics uf tho
professional crook.
Just look nt it, First of ull Mr.
Brown hnd nothing to do with tho
thing ot nil. And now consider what
ho doos. I write two letters to Mr.
Crompton which are pluiiip- and manifestly persona) beyond any possibility of srgument. Almost nt tho
boglnnlng of tho second lottor I say:
"First a few words In confidence" ;
and the fow words nro published in
the "Colonist." Apparently a sacred confosslon would hnvo received
the snmo scant coromony.
Now lt Is one of tho elementary
canons of good form and honorable
conduct thut a confidence must, never
bo botrnyod nnd that personal cor-
rospondonco cannot be published with
out tho consent ot tho writer,. Mr.
Brown has ahvnys posed ns tho soul
of honor nnd tho mirror of good
form. Mr. Hrown has now shown
to all and sundry thnt thoro (s moro
of pose and profession thnn anything

ia. neither one nor the othor. Such
au nction-tw^this comes only naturally from tho\rook or tho cad, and
Mr. ilrown .sLuiiVis rovouled In a naked ugliness of character and moral
obliquity which is us astounding as
it is pitlablo.
And thore is something olso to
come. ' Whence comos Mr. Iirown's
tardily uwukoned anxiety to justify
tho action of the Y.M.C.A., which,
boing interpreted, moans his rugo to
stir up muddy waters, to antagonize
tho sporting rotations of two towns.
Perhaps l.can explain.
To go bark just a little. When the
Ilrst hitch occurred In tho negotiations with the Y.M.C.-A., (awl it
should be remembered that Mr Ward,
tho chairman uf tho Kcgattn Committee wns iu communication with
Mr, Hrown all tho timo), Mr. Brown
inspired a paragraph which appeared In tho Times." 1 didn't preserve
tho paragraph, but it was to the
effect thut had he known Mr. .las.
Adam was chairman of tho Sports
Commltteo, ho would nover havo
questioned tho nature of tho events,
for Mr. Adam was ono of tho foremost amateurs on the Island and
Would only countenance good, clean,
I don't admit the conclusion. I
was present " when Mr. Ward, tho
chairman of the Regatta Committee,
assured Mr. Hrown that tho Ilegntta
was to bo strictly amateur, savo
only, of courso, the Indian canoe
races. This much wos decided almost, from tho beginning, nnd nil the
members of the committee understood It so. I know thero wero all
kinds of rumors flying round in Victoria; but I can prove what I have
said, and furthermore, I consider tho
personal, guarantee I gave to Mr.
Crompton to bo ns good as Mr.
Urown's contrary assertion.
Thon this threat of ample evidenco
of u stronger character is Just whnt
might bo expected of a man of Mr,
Urown's calibre. There is roally no
j necessity for any such childish indulgence, and can anything at once
more puerile and ignoble be conceived than this deliberate attempt to
stir up bad blood in the pursuit of a
personal quarrel and tho gratification of a private grudge. If threats
aro in ordor, Mr. Hrown is as liable
to got hurt ns anybody olse.
Now It is to bo hoped that    this

During Lhu las! two years, 2-1 pu
plls have qualjfled for admission t<
the High School, Tins fact cannoi
be brought out too prominently ii
vlow of the fact that considerable
dissatisfaction lias been oxprossed
and not a little criticism passed on
the state of the schools. How little
ground there Is for this dissatisfaction and criticism is plainly shown
by theso figures. What makes thein
even more significant is the circumstance that last year Principal Hun-
tor and his staff had a whole lot of
broken time to contend with. Yet,
In spite of all thnt, in two years 2.4
pupils have qualified for the High
School, a number which quadruples
the figures of any previous two con
socutive yours. Thoro is now nc
doubt thnt the record will even be
improved in the futuro if tho stuff is
kojit up to its present standard and
tlie hour is ripe for considering the
advisability of starting a High
School.
Tlio law required that there shall
bo 20 qualified pupils. There ought
to bo more than that number avail
able now in Ladysmitli and the dis
trlct. An appropriation was set
apart iu tho City estimates for this
very contingency so that there is
nothing to prevent a High School
from being opened out.
The matter lies with the Trustees,
and no doubt they will deal with it
ns It deserves, The convenience and
advantages of a High School hero
need not be enlarged, upon. Man;.
bright and gifted child has been deprived of bis or. her chance in life
owing to nothing else than the fuel
that the Olty had no High School.
Tf, undor present circumstances, n
school can be opened, it is to bo
hoped that the Trustees will gel
into work.

EDITOIUAL NOTES.
The "Times," it would app*ar, Is
very ill-suited with the Choic* of
Mr. Shepherd aa the Conservative
candidate. Mr. Shepherd is cloarly
not the man that the Time* would,
have chosen. The grievance of the
Times seems to be in the assertion
that Mr. Shepherd is not known to
the voters on the Islands down at
the south end of tha constituency.
It ia nothing to the purpose that
Mr. Shepherd is a familiar figure in
the great voting centres of the electorate. What the Times would desire is a man from the district within its own particular sphere of influence, so that Smith could have it
all his own way in the populous centres of the constituency. There is
nothing doing in that line, nor is
there any necessity for, or anything
to b* gained from, the display of
such a lively concern for the Lord ol
Pier Island. The Times will flrit has enough to do to smooth away
the differences and heart-burnings tn
the ranks of its own party without
RESPitfS PI1 OLYMPIC OAMES
LONDON, July ih.-T-e weather
again thla morning gava promise ol
treating kindlier the Olympic gamesj
but clouds are.' still hovering in the
sky, and this to some extent explains the slimness of attendance.
There were not more than a hundred persons in attendance when the
first event, the Javelin throwing,
and the first heat of the 100 kilometer cycling race started. The programme todry is not up to the usual standard, thero being but three
finals scheduled, the three mile team
race, the ttflo yard cycling race and
tho 2,000 meters tandem cycle race.
Interest centred in the team race
in which three teams representing
England, France and the United
States, qualified yesterday for the
final.
The final In tho three mile team
race was won liy England, United
States second. Time 14 minutes,
39 3-5 seconds.
Tho English tenm was composed of
H. A. Watson, A. j; Robertson, J,
E. Deakin, N. F. Hallows and W.
Coates.
Tho United StnloN lentn was composed of 0. V. Uoidiug, Irish American A. C.; 0. A. Dull, University of
Michigan; .1. L. Kisele, Princeton,
N. Y. A. O.i H. L. Trube, Cornell
and New York A. 0.; and Harvey
Cohn, Irish American A. 0. The
French team consisted of four men
only. The Swedes had tholr revenge
for the failure of the management to
display tho Swedish flog at the opening yesterday, for the flrst flag
hoisted this morning to tho top of
the tall mast in the arena was that
of Sweden. This was done to set
forth that E. V. Lemming had won
the Javelin throwing contest. He
put the stuff 178 feet 7. inches,
breaking his own record of 175 feet
0 inches. Slouras, who won the
silver medal, was ' ten feet behind
'Lemming, his distance being 168
feet 8 inches. Halse, Norway, was
third with 163 feet 1 1-3 inches.
J. A. Svanberg, Sweden, won the
first heat of the five mile run. His
time was 25 minutes 46 1-5 seconds
which beats the Olympic record,
The second heat of tho 200 meter
swimming race, broast stroke, was
won by Perrson, of Sweden. Barony,
of Hungary, was second, and A. M.
Goessling, of Missouri Athletic Club
third. Time of winner was 8 minutes, 17 3-5 seconds,
Ih the second heat of the five mile
run, Voight, of England won easily,
F. O. Hollars of the Now York A.C.,
qualified   lor
