A few weeks subsequent to the n-
bova conversation a travelled-stained party arrived in Ladysmith. Our
friend, Uncle Josh, was In charge
iiul he lod the party straightway to
the Abbotsford hotel. "We'll go

those plans and executed 'em, and
he didn't monkey around a whole
year either." Smith was soon contracted with to build tlie house for

Peterson tlmt she hud decided to go
there. The-irosult was that they
were ushered Into such a bewildering display that the girl was at a
loss how to select. But she soon
yielded to the seductiveness of a
magnificent parlor suite, a leilrcom
set in ouk, golden finish, that would
do credit to old Mr. Klondyke himself. To this she added an easy
rocker for Uncle Josh, and didn't
forgot a most convenient and ornamental writing desk for "Hubby"
Charles, having come to the conclusion that Peterson's pricts wure below tlio very whisper of competition.
"A pretty good start," said the
old man," and now we'll go to the
Ladysmitli Hardware Co.'s store
whero Polly's housowifely instincts
will have full play in marvels of
kitchen apparatus. There is trot nn

'So fur so good," sententiously remarked Undo Josh as thoy left the
tailor shop, "and one thing suggests another. To make this personal decoration business complete,
Charley, you'll also need a new hnt
and a few other men's urnishings.
Now close by is W. E. Morrison's
store. I know of no one who keeps
so large or complete a line of goods
—in styles that are correct. There
is no question about it, my boy,
Morrison is in a position to supply
the good dressers in more satisfactory stylos and prices than anybody
in town, and he's satisfied with a
moderate profit, too."

old man waxed philosophical. "Ne-

"That important adjunct to housekeeping controls masculine temper.
To that end you must patronize a

Magistrates Matheson and Nicholson
Have   l.uug Hearing in
■ Housebreaking Caae.
___iatrntos Matheson and Nicholson had a long and weary case to
hear last night when Mr. Pepo, an
Italian, was charged with lire-king
into the house ol a Chinaman and
stealing $15.10. Moet of., the evidenco wus given through aa inter-
lirotor which is not only a slof* but
a very unsatisfactory method. For
example, if in the cross-examination%
■f an Oriental witness who ls ob-
\iuusly of the very lowest grade of
intelligence, u lawyer puta a question which might conceivably deceive or puzzle an Englishman of
average intelligence, what is going
to huppen in the case of the Oriental who has the question put to him
through the medium of an interpre- I
tor. There is sure to he confusion <
in the answer if not violent contradiction.
Mr. Dave Stephenson, of Nanaimo,
had charge of the caso for the crown.
He produced evidence to show that
the Italian was seen in the Chinaman's cabin, was seen to veava it,
and to go up towards the sraeltor.
The Chinaman who lives in tha ca-
ilii und who alleges his money waa
stolen, was coming down from tha
smelter at the time the first witnesses swear thc Italian was going
up to it. The Chinaman, in passing
the blacksmith's shop meets a man
who looked ullee same as prisoner,
Unally, Mr. Robt. McLay saw accused crawl through tho barbed wire

N. railway . 1 'risoner was in a rare
old hurry, lie fell twice, but jumped to his feet and raced away, eventually seeking cover in the bush behind the Portland house. Aa ha

mutter, prisoner replied hs had baas
scrapping with a Chink. Mr. Mo-
Lay, however, did not see any one
chasing liim.
Constable Stcj hensun produced a
two-piece suit in court which was
swuin lo as belonging to Pepo, tuns being the suit he waa wearing
when he lcit I'.recliin to coma to Ladysmith. Mr. McLay said it waa
very like the suit the man wua'wear
ing when he saw him loafing about
the smelter and crawling through the
Mr. V. D. Harrison appeared for
the prisoner und endeavored to prove
a kind of conspiracy between tha
Chinaman who alleges he waa robbed anil the two Japanese witnesses.
However he wus unable to pursue
satisfactorily his line of cross-examination owing to difficulties with the
iuterpreter and the obviously low
grade of intelligence of the witness.
After displaying exemplary patience in their hearing of the case,
I ho magistrates decidod to send Fepo
up for trial.
The local bo.va play their ilrst league mutch of the season today when
tliey meet the pick of Victoria. Foe
the discomfiture of those croaiera in
town who are already whining and
weeping over the fallen fortunea of
the team it is to be hoped that tha
boys will pull the game off. It la
true that their shape haa never oean
up to what ia expected of them, or
lu what tbey are capable of, and
iliere are quite a few of their supporters w'ho have taken the results
of tho two "frieiullles" with Nniial-
ino altogether too much to heart.
There was nothing much at stake,
and nothing very much in the play
uf thc two teams. Since then some
nf tho players have improved'individually, and are In much better
shape, than they wero at the time
of the games w th Nanaimo. As a
combination they have never 'been
tried out, nnd it ls poor encouragement to any eleven to write them
down ns beaten hefore they step into the field.
loday's game will probably be
hard enough, but the home boys
should annex the points. At least
they are going down to do thslr

There is no question which   it   ia
more dlllicult to discuss without _iv-
ing offence than that of the observance of    the Sabbath.     Of    course,
this does not apply to people of unimpeachable orthodoxy, but to those
who are not    disposed to bow    the
knee to prevailing sentiment.     Even
then the question may well be asked
who Is going to settle or determine
the standard of orthodoxy?     Ortho
doxy,    said Sydney   Smith, la,   my
doxy, and we are very much afraid
that we have not travelled very far
from the position laid down in thla
biting epigtram.     What we think   ia
naturally right, and any difference of
opinion    spells heresy.     More even,
that we are only too prone to
peal to tho power of the law or   of
the bloody force of arms to compel
the    other   people, or    aa we label
them, the heretics, to walk in    the
path we have marked out for them,
towards    the fold   we have selected
for them.
Now lt ought to lie. possible to
pass a few remarks upon tha question without setting them by the
and at least we are foolish en-
ough to try it.    We do not propose
to discuss the question historically,
to declare whether the Sabbath    of
the    Jews    or   the Sunday of tbe
Christians   Is the Lord's Day.     All
we purpose doing is to casually consider first the interference    of    the
Council with the amusements of the
people, and second the principle
obtaining a  hollow observance
the Sabbath by    the power ol
law.       The principal object oi
By-law, as we have been able to un-
dsrstand it, ls to protect ths physical and moral welfare of certaii boys
in tlio town.     Some of the aklerman
stnted that certain parents had come
to them and complained that    they
eould not get their boys home    at
nights.     What the parents were
able to do, the Council, with a parental    solicitude,    altogether    commendable, is only too willing to undertake.     Now we submit that what
a  parent cannot tin for his hoy, rio
City Council can over hops to    do.
Further than that, It is none of Its
business to try to do.     Thess same
complaints   were mode before    ever
there wes a  billiard room or bowling alley In   town.     If both places
ware closed down tomorrow, the self
same complaints would lie heard.
Then thoro are the adults who frequent these places.     Ws do not all
think- alike as to what Is the   propor hour to retire for the night, and
take notice that,    away from    am-
' usement,    no one,

this point. lias the Council the
moral , right to put through such
drastic piece of legislation without
nrst ascertaining the wishes of the
people, .whom it is representing' Admittedly there ore bigger evils In the
town, and ia the present case it
is questionable whether silence can'
be taken as consent, or whether the
Council has any justification at alt
for rushing intu legislation affecting
so many of the citizens.
The second point was that of compelling    a   certain observance uf ths
Subbath    by     ths power of the law.
Frankly it must bs confessed    that
the method of compulsion has asver
succeeded with jtnglisg speaking people.       Catholics   and    Protestants
have each tried    to compel orthodox
uniformity by every conceivable   device ol law,     by tbe cruellest persecution,    even    by    torture end the
stake.     Before the    Puritan revolution an English king enaotod    that
the Sunday should ba observed    by
the   playing of certain games under
threat   of certain    penalties.      The
Puritans    of    course, swung to ths
other extreme, and much of what Is
regarded as traditionally English in
the present day observanre of    the
Sabbath is a  lingering relit of the
dark and sombre    conception    they
set up of tht "day of rest," ordained by scripture.     It seams that tha
ideas and    the observances of    tha
Sabbath are changing) all the lime.
Even in our own life wo can remember when    a  whistle was promptly,
and even harshly    hushed, when    a
[marble or a  top waa unmentionable,
and when a secular newspaper    was
an anathema.     That is     only     25
years ago, and no one can deny the
change that has taken place in that
time.    It moy be genorally predicated that the wrong of today is    the
right of tomorrow, and at least all
history demonstrates that conversion
and conformity obtained either     by
the power of the law or the point of
tho bayonet are a  curse rattier than
The ultimata point   0f
the whole argument is what is right
and what is fair to alt?    Surely the
rational    view is   that there Is no
more   Justification in compelling    a
subject by the power or tha law, to
play   certain    games on a   Sunday,
than in forcing him to attend church
by the same means.    The church, ss

brought discredit upon ths sport au.l

But, with the gambling features ellin
mated, horse racing ceased to bs oi

Interviewed at Victoria yesterday
■m a question that will interest all
prospectors, he said among other
"If a man finds a promising! claim
ind cannot afford to develop it himself, he should form a small syndicate among his friends and do enough work to demonstrate what he
has got. If he does this and the
work ia done properly, capital will
consider it, and he may get a good
price for it, but not otherwise. Capitalists will' not bother prospects,
they have too many other better
things put before them. What is
needed is plenty of work. Nowadays more of the old-time prospectors ore wanted who were not afraid
putting plenty of muscle into
claims. A man will never get a
larger sum for merely running across
a promising looking ledge. In fact,
the capitalist will not look at such
proposition at all. The more
work he does, and.the more ore he
bluets out, the more likely he Is to
sell his claim, and tho more monoy
he will gst for it. This may sound
obvious, but nowadays too many
rarlook this and expect the moneyed mun to take all the chances. He
won't do it. Others, again, merely
try to make their money out of the
stock market, but of courso, that is
not inininp.
"What you need is population to

this Is done there wlll be no dilllcul

Frenklin Union
Was Dedicated
BOSTON, Sept. 23.—One hundred
and eighteen years alter the death
of Benjamin Franklin the city of Boa
ton today came into u handsome
bequest left by that fur-sighted statesman-philosopher in loving remembrance of the city of hia birth. After the lapse of moro than a century, during which time the modest
bequeath of Franklin had grown to
large proportions, the Franklin Un-
ton had become an accomplished
fact. The hundsome buildbig erected at the corner of Berkeley and Ap-
Pleton streets, and which will stand
for yoars to come as a permanent
memorial to the practical wisdom of
the donor, was dedicated this afternoon with interesting exercises.
Tho clause in Benjamin Frankli-i's
will which resulted In tlio erect! in o'
tho Franklin Union was as follows:
I was born in Boston. New Eng
land, and owo ray IT st instruct1 us
in literature to tho free gram a-.r
schools there. I have tharofive 11-
ready considered these sclu lis in ..oy
will. But I am also undor obligations to the state of Muss v j setts
for having unasked appoint! me
formally their agent in Eng'.uJ wU„
handsome salary, which continued
some years. I have considered that
among artisans good apprentices are
most likely to make good citizens,
and having myself been bred to e
manual art, printing, in my native
town, and afterwards assisted to set
up my business in Philadelphia by
kind loan of money from two friends
thero, which was tho foundation of
my fortune, and of all tho utility in
life that may be ascribed to me, I
wish to be useful even after my
death, it possible, in forming and advancing other young men that may
be serviceable to their country in
both these towns. To this end I do-
vote two thousand pounds sterling
which I give, one thousand thereof
to the inhabitants of the town of
Boston, in Massachusetts, and the
other thousand to the Inhabitants of
tlio city of Philadelphia, in trust to
and for tho uses, interest and purposes hereinafter mentioned and declared."
The one thousand pounds left to
the city of Boston wus to be let
out in small sums to apprentices in
the trades during the period of one
hundred years, and at the end of
that time 100-131 of it waa to Ise
used for public improvement of the
city, tlie remainder to remain at Interest for another century and then
