Arthur Skelton
Again Heard Prom
Arthur Skelton, who in the last
days of August last, broke into S,
Leiser & t'o.'s store, and afterwards
made his escape, but was recaptured,
has again written his name in large
letters in the book of fame.
Skelton was caught in the act ot
burglarizing S. Leiser & Co's store
by nightwatehman O'Connell and R.
J. Trembath, and taken to thc lockup. The next evening he came up for
his preliminary hearing before Magistrates Nicholson and Stewart and
was sent up for trial. While confined
in the lock-up Skelton broke a beard
from his bed, and putting his arm
through the cell-door, he smashed
tbe lock with tic board. Then te
went to a tabic where, he found a revolver and loaded it. He lifted the
window and walked down Roberts
street to the wharf. This was atouf
U:flO In the .forenoon, and strijngff to
say he was not recognized. He took
a boat that was hidden around thc
point and started for Cowichan Gap,
where he was captured two or three
days later by Officer Cassidy and R.
J. Trcmi.ath.
In giving evidence ot thc capture
in the Gulf, Officer Cassidy testified:
"When I ran up to the prisoner he
was in a boat I said to him. L wanted to tjlk to him

and John Labourdcttee maoc their esj

were supposed to be hiding i|h the'

preparatory' to making another dash
toward safer localities. A large
posse went after the men and later
Skelton was captured at Port Haney.
The escape had been carefully planned in advance 'by the pair ami was
most skilfully executed. About Ct'O
a. ni. the guards opened the door ol
Labourdettec's cell to take tho prisoner down to breakfast. While they
were downstairs Shclton, who had

McBride Government
Is Generous
The Government steamer Quadra
came in for coal yesterday morning
titer an eight weeks' trip up north.
The weather was rough, and for this
reason the steamer was longer away
than it would ha-*c been under other
The Quadra wns several days at
Prince Rupert, and it was noticed
that rapid progress is being made in
laying the foundations ol- tho new
city. Particularly is-this the case in
thc cutting away of the bluff war
the wharf and the depot by thc steam
The destination ot thc Quadra was
Nicholas Bay, Prince ol Wales Island, where a gas buoy had gone
adrift 100 miles at Stenhouse Shoal,
near Prince Rupert. The Quadra had
to go to Kjicliilkan to get a pilot.to
ta'o them in. Nicholas Day is, a
very difficult point to reach. The
boat has lo run into an inlet between
two capes, and the bouy had drifted
into this arm. However the missing
buoy was finally located and placed
in position.
The water at this point is exceedingly rough. In the storm about
Christmas time a schooner with several Siwashes aboard was wrecked
and all hands were drowned. Some
weeks later a band ol Haida Indians
came up to.search for the.bodies and
hearing the "moa moo" of the whist*
ling buoy concluded it was the wail
of the departed spirits and llicy started immediately for home.
The Quadra is equipped with a
Marconi Wireless outfit, which is   in
charge of Harry Davcy, otic of "the
lest known operators on the coast,
Mayor Nicholson has returned from
Victoria, where he interviewed several members ot the Provincial executive with regard to the smallpoH accounts. His Worship states that he
was well received by Dr. Young, and
when all things are taken into consideration, he let-Is satisfied that the
Government has treated Ladysmith
very generously in t'iie matter of the
payment of thc accounts.
Already accounts aggregating $871
havo been paid by the Government,
but, as-to well known, this is only a
small fraction of the whole indebtedness. Now the Government has decided to go further, and accounts approximating thc additional sum of
$1,500 will be liquidated.
Kor instance, tlie Government will
pay for the isolation hospital; the
only condition being thai it will be
at the service ot the Government if
One nurse will be paid for, and
many other incidentals Unit will appear in the -schedule which will be in
thc possession ot the city clerk btjfercj
the next meeting ot the council.
Hon. Dr. Yoihj and the Government as a whole feel that the Lady
smith visitation was one that demanded special consideration, no
doubt because of the energy displayed by tho officials and citizens in
stamping it out, and lor this reason
thcyhavc gone very tar in the direction of reducing thc burden ol the
civic taxpayers,
The reference m the last is.suc ot
Tho Chronicle to the practice ol some)
people fti sending to thc eastern departmental stores fcr goods that
could just ns well be bought, at home
lias resulted in considerable comment;,
and, strange as it may seem, the
contention of The' Chronicle is. held to
he a weak one hy many.
If this paper had published all! the
letters: it has rcccivcd-this week on
this subject, it would have teen compelled to greatly enlarge the space
devoted to reading matter. Many
letters are personal in character, aid
have been refused publication on that
account; others take the ground that
the individual has a perfect right to
spend his money in thc manner that
suits him best without reterence to
community interest; yet others cast
reflections on (lie local merchants;
and one woman expressed the unpatriotic sentiment that if she had her
way ct 'it, she would-"not buy a dollar's worth in Ladysmith." The
Chrcniclc has no desire to proioU
prolonged discussion with regard to
this matter, but at the risk ot tardier arousing the hostility of a lew
vl ils re..dv':s it will again express
Hi: belief that sending away from
homo for goods is net giving lie encouragement to local merchants that.
„t!;cy have every reason to expect
from, their fellow-citizens, The big
departmental stores of the cast where",
they employ children as clerks for $2
and 83 a week, may be able In some
things to undersell the home merchants, but they, will not help to liiu'lld
sewers in Ladysmith, provide electriq
light, r.or help to improve the cilty
to thc point where the residents will
have all the conveniences to te found
in all well conducted cities. Perhaps!
after all, very few of I hose who receive catalogue send orders erst. It
may bo,that they send lor catalogues
for the reason given in tbe following
letter addressed,
(To the Editor.)
S'r—In the copy of The Ladysmith
throniclc dated FeS).- 24th thero was
an utticlc entitled, "Buy .Your Goods
in Ladysmith," and I could not help
seeing a.lot of truth in it. At thc
same time, merely as a visitor in the>
town, I find myself looking at the
qucstionf rom the other side too. Ot
course this is a difficulty which confronts almost every town which is
comparatively new. People come in
from larger towns, where they have
teen accustomed to finding in the
.stores just what they wart, and I
thin't wc are all rather apt to try
very hard to get it, whether an article in a store, a cement sidewalk, a
good site for a house, a good record
on IL phonograph, or a good hotel to
slop at. At (tie same lime. 1 think
there arc inrny ladles (wc know that'
only ladies do such things), iwho send
for that wicked Eaton's catalogue,
win: linvo no intention, of sending fur
goods,, only really, ono does get an
idea tif what is litcly lo 'he worn
through the folic wing season. 1 am
sure almost every lady finds a certain amount of pleasure in looking
through a catalogue, and also in being uble. to sec lite goods she is buying, and there seem tc be some lovely things to choose from in tire dry-
goods stores right in (his town.

About five years ago while working
in thc Extension mine, he received
thc injuries which last night resulted in his death. Ho was starting a
"place" away from thc level, and atter lighting a shot went up to the
level, and while waiting for' thc shot
to go off, thought oi the dri\cr coming up thc level into his place. With-
put a moment's hesitation, kngham
rushed down past his place to warn
thc driver of thc danger, and before
he got past the shot went off. Al
though he was not struck by any
coal or rock, the concussion caused
by the explosion threw him about so
that his back was seriously injured,
and practically irokcii. For several
months he was given surgical and
medical aid in Lndysmith, and afterwards taken to the Nanaimo
hospital, where since August 5th,
1905, ho laid on a water bed, helpless, and in spite of the best nursing
nn:l medical skill relief could not be
given him. The sufferer, -during his
long term ol pain, bore up wonder
fully, nnd death came last evening as
a happy relief,

There has been one cxce;ltion to the
fcenerul rule in the case of the speech
delivered last Wednesday by Mr. II.
II. Thomson, one of the tour representatives ot the City oi Victoria.
Mr. Thomson is a successful wholesale merchant "and manufacturer, and
his speech was that of a practical
man of business, lie dealt with two
very important industrial questions,
and it. will not he surprising to learn
that he has succeeded in developing
li beneficial interest in t'.c two sub
jtets he discussed bcfo'.'o the IIov.sp.
He began by complimenting thc
Government for having Voted an additional sum for the preservation of
fruit trers. This step, lhc s.iea'.er
loinled out, was a very important
otic at |fresent. He referred to tlie]
disaster to the fruit indisiry result-j
ing irom fruit pests, and quoted figures to show thit thc,.precautiriiis taf
ken 'by.the..'Government of iirUisIr
Columbia had beneficial rcsJlts. lie
referred to the growing dcmnid tor
apples, and predicted that in a tew
years Canada would be in a position
to ship large quantities of fruit not
only to thc Bril^i Colonies bin to
thc United States as well. He spoke
nf tho available land for truit-grow-
ini; purposes on.VancptrjJci Island, referring particularly tn the fact fiat

"In 1891 Japan bough! three million dollars' woi'fh of pig iron on the
Pacific coast, principally at Seattle.
In 11101 she bought six millions

Andrcw.Garnegio's statement:
" 'The seat.of manufacturing is now'

A Woman's Notebook
I was looking thc other day over a
list of titles irom which I was supposed to choose an ai'ticlc. Ihey
struck me on the whole as being most
ly entirely foolish and unsuitable, and
yet they were no more foolish per-
naps than the questions wc idly: as*
ourselves from day to day. One title was'"is there such a .tilingas
IticKV" to which 1 emphatically answer "No." Luck is made up of per-
s.everaft.0 and industry, and steady
worK and determination, and thc only
other luck is when wc reap thc Jjcne-
lit of thoso qualities m others, and
theirvirtues become our luck. A scc-
otid qucst'on was "is success sometimes a failure';'' surely u'foolish
question is this, since the meaning cf
success is "tilts favorable" tcrmiua-
ation of anything attempted, and, if
it fails, it cannot be called "a favorable termination," but only so-called
success, with quite a different ideal.

with a sledge-hammer. There are
many troubles—the loss of a dear
friend, tho abse-hee or suffering of
thoso we love, one's own physical ill-
health, or loss of money or loss of
work—but it is needless to reiterate
and' emphasize numberless human
woes. It is sufficient to return to
tho sledge-hammer attack. If not actually the greatest of all our possible troubles, and I differentiate
hero between sorrow and trouble—it
is one of our hardest taskmasters!!

"Are there any . females in Heaven?" another exceedingly foolish ^tjes-
tion, since wc are expressly told in
lhe Scriptures lhat ''the Kingdom of
Heaven is within us." I should ruj
^hcr gather that females were in the
preponderance.    Another tiuestion was 'jjy aocidente
•'What—is a marrying income?" This i   	
is more sensible, but the subject itself of a whule essay. What constitutes a sufficient income depends on
taste and environment and.personal
desires and management, and on different people's different and ever-
varying temperaments. I thin'.;, perhaps, thc best answer to thc question
is this: Each perscn should marry
on thc income ihey consider sufficient,
for if A chooses whnt B should live
en, B would probably tic very dissatisfied, whilo 0 wHl think them
both grossly extravagant, and E and
F•will consider then to tc pauptrs.
Be sure before you marry lo know
you are going lo have what you personally consider a sufficient income.
You will probably—no,I mean possibly—be very discontented when you
find yo.i ha'.e tc live on it, but you
will be far less discontented than it
you marry on less than what you
now consider sufficient.

Marriage is a lottery—you must
at least start with something to gamble with—and this applies to money
as well as love mid patience. Start
with a certain.amount of independent1
capital, and a certain income, however small, and an infinite stock ol
lovo and patience, and you may bo an
exceedingly happy couple.
