should He a limit lo the pay of nurses. Someone should know what
they should get.
Aid. Mathcsou related a conversation with the city medical health officer. It wns believed that thc wa^
ges would be $23 per week,, but later developments seemed to show

The question of increasing the revenue came up, and Aid. McKinnell believed the hotel licenses should be advanced to the amount paid in Nan limb and other cities.
In the course ot a lengthy discus,
sion'it was pointed out thit the La-
dysmith hotelkecpers were subjected
to unfair competition,, bottle peddlers
visiting tbe different house.; .ad selling beer.. Others expressed tliet lie-
litf that something should lie done

a guarantee that he would complete
the work. Under the oew arrangement the tenderer will be asked to deposit $1,000 arid provide two bondsmen in the amount ol $6,1)00.
In this connection certain kjuestions
were asked in regard to the septic
tank. Some ct the aldermen had
dotib's as to its efficiency, but it was
pointed out that in this case the con"
ditions wcro somewhat different to
those prevailing in other places where
the septic tank had ten tested.
Aid. Campbell was granted permis-
ior, to introduce his amendment to

Smelter Will Be  Busy
1-here is every prospect that the smelter will run
throughout the summer without any stoppage for
ore. This, will be good news to the citizens of Ladysmith. During the past few weeks contracts have
been made with the managers of several mines for
theii^fiill outpost- of'pre, and this means steady
operations at the smelter. The barge [Charger is
discharging ore from'nmce of Wales Island to day
and there are also three scows in with small lots of
local ore."

U. last Tdesday evening for tbe men
mortal srvie'e, which the union "annually observes in memory oi tbe promoted leader of the great white ribbon army. All available space was
occupied by the large gathering assembled.
The meeting was presided ever by
Mr. Malpas, president, and an interesting programme was rendered. Mrs.
Spofford, provincial president, was
present and referred to Miss Willard,
her child,life, which even at an early
age showed in childish sports, her
strong tendency.. to leadership, her
success in student life, and as a teacher, her wonderful influence over tbe
pupils in her charge. Possibly no
other woman of the present age and
few if any, possessed the marvellous
executive ability with which Miss
Willard was gifted. .The World's Woman's Christian Temperance I'nion,
while international in character, prosecuting its work through forty
thoroughly organized departments,
covering legislative, education, evangelization and having as. Other objects the uplifting of humanity of
every class. It is an unperishable
monument to this great woman's
marvellous ability as an organizer
and leader. Her intense passion tor
humanity, with all its sin, its woe,
its great possibilities, was an unquenchable fire which burned with on-
abating zenj. While her faith inmen
: nd women, her .kindness in seeing
the good in persons always, led her
to blame little and praise much. Miss
Willard was born at Churchville, New
York, in 1S3U, but while still a child
her parents removed tc Wisconsin,
where.her child life was spent, and
later Evanston,' III., became and was
to lhe last,; her home. The placing
of her statue in Statuary Hall, at
the national capital, by the unanimous vote of thii State legislature of
Illinois is a testimony of appreciation
of which Miss Willard was well worthy. Seven years ago Miss Willard
laid down her earthly leadership of
the white ribben army, 150,000
strong, but she continues to be the
promoted leader^, of her loving and
loyal followers, and her great life
work is still going on,
An appropriate programme of music and recitations was much enjoyed
by those present at the meeting. The
following ladies and gentlemen contributed solos: Mrs. Ward, Mrs. Gilchrist and Mr. Barr, and recitations'
were received trom Miss Ethel erosion, Mr. Marton and Miss Nellie Bb,»?
ter. Thc Rev. Mr. Ambrose was
heartily welcomed by those present,
and in a neat speech expressed his
pleasure at being present and his interest in tho work.
A letter from Dr. Spencer, superintendent of local option work for the
province, was read by thc Rev.- Mr.
McMillan.^, showing in round numbers
tlio result' of thc petition work tor a
local option till to be 10,000 signatures cf voters, and 22,000 signatures

frcshinents dainty and abundant were
served, a hearty vote of thanks was

Editorial Comment.
The Chronicle has several times referred to the. efforts that are being
made hy tho Canadian Forestry Association, to interest the people ot
Canada in the need of replacing the
forests, which the development of the
country has removed from many hundreds of square miles. Last week, in
thc City of Toronto, thc Canadian
Forestry Association held a convention, and several oficred suggestions
that are well entitled to serious consideration. One speaker, Surveyor-
General Grimmer, ol New Brunswick?
stated that his government is desirous ol draining the bogs In that province, and utilizing them for reforestation purposes. M. J. Macoun who
has spent years investigating conditions in the north, stated that between Hudson's Bay and the Mackenzie river there were as many acres
ol bog land as ot green growing timber. He had noticed that when the
hog is drained timber commenced to
grow. Earl Grey, in opening- thc
convention,, emphasized the tact that
uncontrolled deforestation not only
wasted a gigantic amount of utilized
land, hut was followed by appaling
drought and consequently by a failure ot crops. "It is raized," he
said, "that unless thc people of the
whole continent cl North Amorica
adopt the principle ol subject ing individual interests to those of the community, they must drill into a state
ol material as well as moral bankruptcy." There were several other
sreakers, all of whom emphasized
the necessity of the early solution ol
this problem!

When the world-maker mapped out
the plan of this particular planet,
and drew the division lines which
were afterwards to form the boundaries of nations, and set down tho
dates when each nation was to step
upon the stage of action and achievement, it is very evident that to Can-
ada were assigned a great temptation and a great chance. She has
been upon the stage sufficiently long
to enable us to get a clear conception of this fact, and a little consideration of it at this era ol nation-making will be possibly very
The cCiance referred to, lies in the
fact that tho comtyg of Canada upon the stage has been reserved until
ihe culminating climax of the world-
play. Everything that has gone before may rightly be regarded as having, in some way and in some degree
led up, to her arrival and attainment.
Nations have experimented for., centuries, generally at the cost of blood
and loss untold.. Government has
worn out guises from despotism to
democracy. All tollies to which nations are addicted have teen paraded
before our eyes. And all of this is
to be our supreme national advantage. Danger places have been marked out. On all the pages of history
burn the red lights of warning. And
we, coming into our national existence: now, and profiting by the mistakes af our predecessors, have the
chance of becoming, the nation paramount, in excellence of private good
anJ public government.
But the temptation is no less great
than the chance. Nothing is more
needed in successful utilization of ou$
great chance than the absolute unity J
of Canadian interest. Division of all
sort, is deadly. Solidarity alone call
bring success. The work can be done
only by our walking together and
working together and thinking together as the united units whoso sum
total is called Canada.' ,-Unity is tlio
essential element which nothing
worth the doing can possibly, be
A glance at tho gco;|&phy of Canada reveals the danger to every clear-
eyed citizen. Our country, so far as
its population is concerned, is a
long and narrow strip, with the various provinces separated by space
and sentiment. Wc are a long line,
stretching from Atlantic to Pacific,
and at many points we are not yet
within speaking, distance of the next
man. The provinces vary widely in
their characteristics, which do not
lend to grow less pronounced as the
time passes. The,influx at ttiepresent time ol many1 Americans Irom
Use States into the western prev.
iiices will develop even more this
tendency. ,
The result of this scattering ol
population is very manifest, t^herc
is little bond of union between the
Nova Scotia and the Ontario citizen.   To the average man in Ottawa
England'seems not [more distant tliatu
llali(ax or Vancouver. The distant
provinces aro cloaked with an unreality that conceals their real character, ami prevents much real sentiment of fellow-feeling. To the aver--
age Manitoba farmer, hailing from
Minnesota or Southern Ontario, Quebec seems but a bit of thc old French
[-world, dropped down in Canada, and
still living the oIS lite in tlio old
way. And British Columbia might
be engulfed' by a tidal "wave without
the fact making any definite change
in our actual consciousnesss.
Hence the temptation toward isolation and separatism must be fought
to thc utmost,—tought as men fight
the drowsiness of death in the paralyzing chill of the westerir* winter.
We must make ourselves familiar
with thc full facts, and derive from
them a degree of sympathetic feeling
that will enable us to stand together. Prejudice arising from any
cause whatsoever, must be regarded
as nothing short ot treason. We must
think west and east, and be bounded
nn  either  side by  nothing short  of

Thc late Dr. Drummond, the Habitant poet, once related an amusing

Drummond, always kind-hearted

he diagnosed as a fairly severe c£ss
of typhoid.
