j Two communications, ono from an
'olectrkul engineering ur—, the other
ucKnowicdging. the receipt ol the
council's subscription loo to tho Union of 11. U£ Municipalities wore ordered tiled.
A communication was read from
Mayor Nicholson, stating that he was
going to orect a br_t building on
first uvosue and as—ng to be obliged with the street levels, and perinis-
sion tu puss over the sidewalk while
excavating. Mayor -Nicholson promised to submit plans and spec—cations before beginning to build.
Aid. Mctt.1nncll moved and Aid.
liuworl.li seconded that the request
te granted.
Ou "question" being called, Aid.
Matheson Bald if this permission
were grunted and Ills Worship " put
down the building to where they
thought the levels wero, it would
give a strange appearance to that
sldo of the street and make a big
hole in the sidowalk. There had already been a lot of dissatisfaction
there, and he would not like to cause
any moro. Certainly no section of
the town had received better accommodation. However, he did not
know exaotly what was best to be
done In the matter, lie understood
that the street level, according to
the city plans, waa about four feet
below the present sidewalk. II Ills
Worship put the new building down
to thut level it would make a terrible looking holo In the sidewalk. The
city was not in _. position to go to
work and level the whole sidewalk
down to that grade, lie hardly saw
what to do with the matter.
Aid. McKinnell said that the reason he had mad* the motion was
that His Worship preferred a definite
request and he thought they ought
first to grant lt and then discuss the
issues involved In the question.
Mayor Nioholston said all they
could do was to got levels and then
take action.
Aid.     Matheson said that as one
way out of the. difficulty he   would
be In favor of establishing the present grade ol tlie sidewalk as
official level of that side ot that sec-
*!.%%«.!. »,a,%%^%s,as.**..*i-r f Jtlon of First avenue.   If, in time to
* " I loome, tho city grew and became rich
i                                                    I I enough to hear the exponas of lower-
• c..n immnii t—mm   1« 1 l""? the sidewalk and the houses
hove It the original street level, well
and good. HO Instanced the improve-
ment* that had been made ln the
•beets of Seattle and Tscomn. He
—_ not know whether or not his
suggestion could be carried out, but
he thought it could.
AM. Haworth asked if they put up
th* grade on one sldo of tho avenuo
thay would not have to raise tho
level ot the other side accordingly.
Aid. Mntheaon thought not.
Aid. Campbell said he would not
like to discourage any man from
building. For the present they could
kit the sidewalk g0 as it was. In
any event they were not in a position to put lt down, and under the
otrcumatancea he thought His Worship should bo allowed to proceed
with the building.
Aid. Matheson aald he did not want
to plac* any obstacle* tn the way ol
new building* in the elty, but it wa*
their duty to look aftor the interests
of the city and he believed Hls Worship would do that as well as any
ol them or better. He would advise
thaa to take legal opinion as to
Whether or not they could establish
a new street grade.
AM. Nicholson thought tho best
plan would be to get a survey so
that they would know exactly whero
they were and whether thay had lar
to ro down.
Aid. McKinnoll thought the discussion wa* rather out ol order but
Hi* Worship said no. Aid. McKinnell went on to aay that he did not
believe that council could go to
work and alter the original street
level merely by resolution. It would
not be right to do anything of the
kind boforo flrit consulting the other
property holders on the avenues. Let
thnn grant tho Mayor'* request, thon
if the people wer* satisfied with the
present grade, all right.
Aid. Mathwon aald that the point
^'was that II they granted the request
His Worship would hav* th* author-

Aid. Mciviuneil cuuidu t see what
harm thero was in graining Uu
truest, in his opiutuu tho council hud
no power to alter tho grade of the
street over the levels wut had bens
registered,
Aid.' Muthesuu asked how it would
i.« to leave tho matter in the hands
of the Mayor to got the original
grade aud also a survey of the grade
at which the sidowalk is laid. His
Worship could get the surveyors to
make plans so that they could be
registered with the government nu—,.
ing the new grade the ollicial city
level lor the streot.
It was accordingly agreed that the
communication be laid over for one
week, His Worship meantime to obtain at his own expense, the required
grades and submit them to .the council.
Bills to the amount of ST.70 were
presented and referred to the Financo
Committee to be paid if found correct.
Mayor Nicholson reported that he
had visited Victoria last week on
business connected with the city. He
had seen the head of the firm with
whom they had been negotiating con
earning, the sale of the city debentures. The gentleman had informed
him that he could make no botter offer, and 11 botter terms wero oflered
them back east he advised them to
accept them.
He alao endeavored to get an interview with Lieutenant-Governor
Dunamuir, but had tound him so busy
that he was unable to get to him.
He had, however, seen Mr. Little,
and he learned that the-question of
sito for an electric power house
had been under discussion. His Worship did not think thoy would now
get that sito the plans of which he
had had prepared. However, Mr. lit-1
tie was coming up on Tuesday and
would then bo able to locate a site.
His worship had also seen Mr. Mohun. Tho latter wonted a survey for
a place to put in the septic tank. If
he had got a satisfactory answer as
to tho site he had been going to send
for —r. King but under the circumstances had taken no action.
Hoad Foreman Callender reported
that he had inspected the placo on
Fifth avenue which Flro Chief Smith
had complained of being a danger to
the safety of the city on account ol
tho brush and timber growing on It.
Altogether there was about 370 feet
of It, but In his opinion It was safer
as It wee than it would bo after It
was cut down unless .it was burnt
up or removed.
AM. Matheson concurred In this
opinion and the roport was   ordered

A LEVEL (QUESTION,
The request of Mayor Nicholson for
the street grade on First Avenue led
to a long discussion at Monday
night's meeting of the council. His
Worship purposes erecting a brick
building on the lot between the Europe Hotel and Mr. Scott's premises.
He has taken the propor source in
taking the council lor its street lev-
' el* before beginning the work of excavation. The councillors, however,
found themselves in rather a tight
and difficult corner. They have already had their troubles over that
section of the new sidewalk running
from the Ladysmith Hotel to Hls-h
street. The sidewalk is not yet down
to the grade established by the original city survey, and already it Is
btfow some of the house* and (tores
by which it runs. M it were lowered
to the original level it would fall
upon the city to shoulder the cost
ot lowering Uie buildings also. Needles* to Bay this would require more
money than the olty will be ln a
position to spare for years to come.
The question then was what were
_-y to do with the requost of •_—
Worehip. if, after furnishing him
iwith the levels he went to work and
put up the new building three feet
below the present sidewalk the whole
appearance of that side of the avenue would be spoiled. The sidewalk
would also hav* to be altered and
•here would be one of those chutes
at each side of the building about
which in other parte of the town
•verybodj^ Is grumbling. Alderman
Matheson suggested that tho council
establish the new sidewalk as the
•treot grade, and H this can be done
it seem* to us to offer the easiest
aad simplest road out ol the dlflH-
culty. As he very sagely remarked
if in years to come, the city hat
grown to such an extent as to make
it necessary or advisable to revert
to ths original level it will be rich
enough to pay for lt. We can only
hope that such ft time is coming for
tbe town, and, if ever it does, there
will assuredly bo no criticism of the
present council for taking such action as circumstances dictated. What
renders it much easier to carry out
Aid. Muthoson's suggestion Is the
fact that Oatacre street end* at tin
avenue. Thu* there la no possibility
Pt inconvenience arising to anyone
from the fact that the high aide of
the avsnue Is left a couple of feet
at-vethe original street level. Of
couree It would only lie proper to
consult thu othor property owners
*t that section of the avenue, but
it ia hardly likely that they would
rale* any objection. Meantime It
'would be better to have the thing
definitely and finally settled, and In
th* present circumstances there doe*

theie was a noticabie lacs, oi telegraphic news. However, the publishers —an* lavish promises ol improvement iu their next issue, and it is
only fair to rceerv* Judgment until
it is out. For the rest,, uie Chronicle, suy the P4b—emirs, has not been
started to IU1 a long felt want. It
is purely a business enterprise, and
Uie publishers are in no wise dismayed by the fact that —if dy smith

death of. so many journal—tie enterprises.   Here is a iy—"ugeous Irank-
bss that is wholly coaunoi_lable.
After all, the situation haa all the
interest of novelty. Hitherto the
town bas only known one newspaper
at a time, and then never for vory
long. Logically Standard and Chron
icle should only lust half the time of
the shadows that have gone before,
but even logic has its apparent
freaks, and thore ia an ord saying u-
bout the benefits of hunting in couple*. Whether the saying waa meant
to apply to a couple ot rival .Journal* time alone will tell. The policy,
of the Chronicle is to be independent.
The publishers have very clearly had
some very painful experiences of political servitude and now, in- starting
in a new. field, hope to ba able to
enow- their acquired wisdom with
golden profits. We hope tbey will,
but we "hae oor doots." A journal
can take a side In politics .without
making Itself the conscienceless tool
ot a party, Furthermore, in all our
experience we have never came across
an absolutely independent newspaper
and Stundard readers do not need to
be reminded of the political color ol
the laat independent Journal in Ladysmith. The publishers speak jn very
friendly terms of the Standard and
we in turn heartily wish them: suc-
We ourselves have been almost

tbe Interests of the city and ot the
community. Like the Chronicle, whether we continue in business or not
will depend entirely upon our patron*. We are not barking away upon
our claim of priority Jn the field, We
are willing to stand or fall by our
works, and If this standard I* applied to us ws nave no fear -of the future.

OUR SPOUTING CA'USBRIE.
While tho actual work of the season will not commence for yet another month, we aro- standing on the
threshhold c' To football year with
all tv .'. it may contain for us of
glorious victory or grim and grattng
defeat. The announcement made- in
the news columns of the Standard
on Saturday that Nanaimo would
open out' the ' season on the home
grounds oh Sunday afternoon first
has put everybody on the qui vivo..
The first 'whiff of excitement has broken out -and how strong It may grow
and how far lt may carry us wlll all
depend upon tho performance of the'
team.
New Conditions.
This Is the great central fact which
the club's active workers and supporters need to keep evor boforo
them. With the material available
last year tho toam made a truly gallant fight for both Dominion and
Provincial honors. Just a littio bit
of that luck with whloh thoy woro always credited and one or tho other,
or both of theso trophies might have
boen adorning somo of our storo windows. However, that is all done
with, and lt is present and futuro issues with which we are concerned.
The point to be rcnllaod and acted
upon is that this year we are enter
ing into another class of football un
der new conditions.
Want Winning Team..
The local team last souson -was absolutely the strongest on the Island
until the Importation of players began. This importation ot foreign
talent began with the Y.M.C.A. and
was continued by Nanaimo right up
to the end of the season. This year
rules have been framed to prevent
one club poaching among the players
ol another. But there are valid and
legal means of approaching players
ln the close season and every club is
sseking to secure a -winning team
Ladysmith ls, of course, in tho swim
with the othors, and nothing will be
left undone to get together the
strongest eleven possible.
Increasing Popularity.
The result will, ol course, be felt
by some of tho local players who
have carried the red and white
stripes into the teeth of many a
fierce charge and desperate rally. No
one can help feeling this effect of the
new conditions.. Still, the changing
circumstances are only symtomatlc
of the times, and a repetition ot all
football history. Wo have now
reached the point from which football will advance with rapid strides,
for years the game has been kept
golnr in a quiet and even' haphazard ray, but without attracting the
attention of the sport loving publlc,
Now A.- game has won a measure of
popularity, and clean, first class
Iootball .will go far to make it
attractive here as it Is in the Old
Country. It is safe to say that, as
things are how, if the standard of
play reaches the high level It Is ex
pected to do and if the flve teams
or even three of ihem are at allov
only matched, tho Pacific Coast League will be the making ot football
on the Const.

One Inevitable result will be the Introduction nf professionalism: and I
want it understood that I am not

Font, .ill Salaries.
'Again, iu football, the Association
has gone so far as to interfere with
the players' wages. Indeed there Is
a maximum wage, and any violation
of the association's ruling* carries
heavy penaltiee. The association on
the face of it had cover a shadow of
right to meddle with the wages of
the players. The interference came
only at the dictation ol various club
shareholders. The professional footballer only gets hls place as the result of the keenest and severest competition, and then, when he "arrives'
he finds the Association has stepped
ln and decreed what his wages shall,
be. The footballer has every bit as
much right to earn all the money his,
services can command in the open
market as any of the gentlemen com.

should be, no one could for a moment contend. If wo got the professional in local football wo ahull see

more largely attondod and thore will

game will benefit rather than suffer.

200 metres, and now wo know why

Tho simple roason Is that in Walker,

was himself beaten in tho Olympic
race. Now /Walker has boaten all

9 2-6 soconds. Anothor collide of
weeks in old England and ho ought
to do the even 9 seconds. -Anyhow
he is the best yet, nnd Bobbie has at
least tho crow of having beaten him
once.
THE MARATHON RACE
The London Chronicle has a vory
dramatic account of the great Marathon race. Tho following is a portion of the account:
We waited now with eyes that bo-
came almost dazed by watching the
entrance, and with a high, tension
that was almost unendurable. At 5.7
every one gavo a start and shouted
hoarsely at tho sound of a dull boom
of a gun. At 5.14 another gun was
fired, and tho sound wos qulto close.
Tho first runnor bud reached tho exhibition!
Ever- spectator in the vast amphitheatre was now on his feet, straining forward with wild excitemont.
The mogophono man shouted out
that Longboat had arrivod—In a
car! Onco again wo laughed, but
only for a moment," A few moments
Inter there was a* sensation round
the entrance way. Had the flrst
man arrived? Evon one had come,
but he was carried ln and laid out
on the turf. The cry wont up, that
tho mon hnd dropped doiid. Afterwards we learnt that it wos ono of
the stragglers who had beon picked
up exhausted half-way through tho
race and brought homo in a car.
But thon at 5.20 we could hoar
dull roar of cheorlng outsido. Then
a dead silence. A socond later the
Judges rushed on to tho track. A
great yell camo from thousands of
throats.    Tho first runnor hud comot
Imt oh, how pitiable! In what
dreadful state! It was Dorando, tho
Italian. We could toll by his white
shirt and red breeches. He was not
running. It seemed that he had fallen at the entrance, and had picked
himself up, or ho wns plckod up. Ho
staggered in, helplessly, in a drunken way. His head wus tlod up with
a handkerchiof, and flopped from sldo
tio sido. His arms woro groping forward in a blind wny. His logs seem,
ed to givo wny undor him. But ho
staggered forward, the judges uud at
tendinis ruining on either side of
him. <■
Im Tillbly, with an enthusiasm
that was exhausting, ovoryono ln the
great amphitheatre shouted and
cheored and waved and stumped in a
kind of mid-summer madness. Dorando had won I He was tho horo of
the Marathon raco! Ho had run 20t
miles through the hot sun to a glorious victory!
A Ory of Horror.
Then, while one still cheered, something seemed to brook in ono's heart,
a* one gazed at that pitiable, broken, blind man, stumbling forward,
raiaing his hands to his drooping
head and to his ghastly face, and
letting them fall again limply. The
man seemed to be dying. It seemed
as if .he would drop dead at every
•top.
Then suddenly he fell, a huddled
figure like a corpse. Tho great roar
of cheering suddenly changed its tone
A cry ol horrqr, pity, fear, came
from every throat, Like Pheidlppl-
des, the fastest runner ln all Greece,
the win—sr of many races in the first
Olympic games, who carried tho
news of .victory to the Athenians,
Dorando, the Italian, had . fallen
dead. So it seemed for a few minutes while tho judges and attendant-
gathered round and bent over him,
But nn. Tho mnn had picked himself up, or iwas helped up. He stumbled on for a- few puces, and again a
mighty cheer rolled round the amphitheatre. But in a few paces hs
fell again. It was horrible. It was
too cruel. One sickened at lt. Once
more, after a few moments he wa*
again on hi* legs, but he was being
' ilped along, almost carried by the
Idges. The poor wretch did not
seem to hear the tumult around him.
It was Ilk* a man at hla last gasp
being shoved along to bis own grave.
He was down again for the third
time.      i
People wero now shouting rather
hysterically women were weeping and
half-falntlng. Tho strain on the
nerves and heart was becomlt.g terrible. Tho man was again piciccd
up. ■ He wus ngain fumbling forward with his hands outstretched.
American Staggers in.
It was throo minutes since Dornn-
do's entrance in lhe stadium, und
now another roar of excitement went,
up, for anothor /nun bad arrivod. -Tt
was Huyos tho American and i.o too
was staggering in a drunken way.'
Uut Blowly ho wus coming ii.i'vvurd
with his head dangling, and I1;' Americana wero cheering him mni'ly. It
seemed as if ho would, pass tho Lody
of his fallen rival, ilut tho Italian
attendants woro shouting ovor that
prostrato body. Thoy woro trying
to pierce thoso dead dull ears with
tho news that he would bo beaten if
he did not make ono more struggle.
This timo it wus quite clottr that
he wus picked up, that ho wus being
helped and almnst carried along. Ho
was loaning backwards with his head
on ono o, tho attendant's shoulders,
a ghastly flguro, but heroic even li
splto of tho horror of it nil. Ho collapsed for tho fifth time. Ho would
nover roach tho tupo. It seeniod bettor that ho should lie allowed to Iio,
though it woro to dlo.
But at lust, nt 5:80—that is ton

Tbo firo started In tho hold of the
boat noar the ongino room and gained such rapid headway that the escape was cut oil for many of those
aboard. Tho loss is roughly estimated at $54,000, only partially lnsur

ovonlng and unloaded hor cargo during tho morning. In tho afternoon,
Capt. Stevens took on tho return
cargo, which included 250,000 worth
of furs. All was In readiness to sail
Thursday morning.
At 1 o'clock ln tho morning flro
broko out in tho hold noar the boilers and boforo nn alarm could bo

companion way.
There woro-about 85 sleeping on

uwuy by tho gang plank, but others
woro forcod to Jump Into tho tug

how tlie vlotlms. of the tragedy met

cabin and woro oithor burnod to
doath or smothered beforo tho flames
reached thom.      f
lleforo tho stoamer could bo cut

caught tho docks and.In tho absence
of nil lire fighting apparatus lt - was
but a few minutes bofore tho boat
was completely destroyed. The trading post and houso of settlement
woro saved and tho tug Idoll had a
nurrow escape,
Tho first word of tho tragedy reach
ed Selkirk last night by tho steamer
Wolverine, which brought tho surviving pnssongors and crew of tho burned steamer.
Jonos, Overton ond   Fryer were
boys who wero on a holiday trip, as
wus also Sliss Povaho, of Winnipeg.
Tho Promior was the property of
tbo Dominion Fish Company of Solklrk, plying on tho lake between Solklrk nnd Warron's Landing, which Is
at tho oxtromo northerly end of the
lako.. Tho throo little boys, Ehnor
Jones, Osier Ovorton and Leonard
Fryor, of Solklrk, who were lost,
hod beon playing about tho ship the
ovonlng boforo and had retired to
thoir staterooms early In the ovonlng-. They woro never seen again.
Thoir stateroom was nearest to the
funnol of the steamor, where tho flre
originated ,nnd it ls thought likely
thnt thoy wore suffocated before tho
flro started In other portions of the
vessel.
Looting by tho Indians was one of
tho Incidents following tho catastrophe. Tho Indians, although every
man's holp was needed, fled to the
woods at tho flrat cry of flre for the
most part. Later, when the stock
from tho little steamer owned by the
Fish Company wns freely placed at
tho disposal of the passengers who
hod lost everything, the Indians returned and corralled everything In
sight.
The cscnpo of Miss Isolator, a
nurse, of Selkirk,' who was bringing
two nelcos home,' was one of the
most thrilling. Miss lsblster wa* on
the outsld* of the vessel and in try.
Ing to assist her nolcos sho was do
loyed In getting away. She finally
rushed to tho side, only to find that
the tug which had taken ofl as many
of tho passongers as possible had
been forced to back away from the
steamer's side to oxcape catching on
flre.    Men on the tug called frantic
fill work on tho part of local physicians, however, restored her and she
will soon be as well'as ever.
Mrs. Mossr, matron of the Mission
at Norway House, who was also ope
of the passengers, narrowly escaped
as the results of hor frantic attempt*
to save hor clothing. 'She had to be
removed from tho stato room practically by forco and sho was severely burned.
Among thoso who lost everything,
was a young missloifary named Mc-
Kersio who was on his way to Toronto after having spent four years
ln tho North. McKorslo had all his
clothoB, effects and--money with hint,
as he intended to take a course lh
medicine at Toronto to fit him for a
medical missionary work. He saved
nothing but his coat. The survivors are loud ln their praise of the
heroic work of tho officers and crew
of tho vessel..
Capt. Stevens was tho last to
leave the steamer, he having crawled
out into tho anchor chains to . os-
copo tho flamos. Those who passed
through tho disaster aro thankful
that tho flre did not break out some
hours later while the steamor was
out on tho lake. Tho lifo boats wsre
located In tho Immediate vicinity ol
the funnel and wer* along with tbe
first fixtures to.be consumed.

ister explains that tbo lowest ton-
dor was withdrawn beforo tho day
ot opening. Truo, it was openod
and figured out by tho Department
with the others, but this wns explained as a mlstako. Tho result of
the withdrawal was that Mr. Wallberg got the contract.
Tho  contract    prico of the   other
three buildings was 8150,945.   Over
¥10,000 waa added by certain changes and additions In the buildings.
A   Change.
But the special feature ot the
Moncton contract was a change ln
the foundation nnd construction of a
sewer over half a mile long. The
contract for the concrete foundation
was varied by increasing the width
and by making it 6 feet 8 inches
deep instead of 4 feet 3 inches. Now
it happened that Wallborg's tender
for concrete was 812-75 por yard,
and for excavation 58 cents, whilo
tho prico paid Rhodes _ Curry
anothor of tho Moncton buildings
was $8.00 for concrete and 35 cents
for excavation. When tho concrete
and excavation foundation wot-k 'is
doubled theso comparisons between
competitors become important. The
change in quantity was made h-- tho
officer on the ground by vorbul contract.
A Wonderful Sewer.
As to tho sewer thero are many
complications. Tho contract for the
work was made verbally with Mr.
Wallberg at Moncton, and there Ib
not a lino written to prove It. The
Deputy Minister informed the Committee that the Chief Engineer had
no right to make the contract without reporting it, and it should have
been written and signed.
Chief Engineer Mackenzie, who
made the contract, told tho Committee that the schedule rates for ex,
cavation would apply to tho first
or oasy part of the work. He seemed to havo no Idea how far this system i would prevail, though he was
certain that it would not be used
for the lower depths because the contractor could not afford to do tho
work for tho    price.
Arrangement* are now   well undor
way and enthusiastic committees are
... _.      The"*_eputy at work arranging details   for    the
Minister" testified'that in his opinion monster picnic to be held at Sidney
the schedulo would not apply at all, ion Saturday August 2S, undor the
but tho day's work system would pro ausplcos of tho Vlctorio_Llberal-Con-
vail    throughout.       Mr.   Wallberg servative Assoc.ation,
HIS C-JMB WAB POVERTY.
000 worth of work had been cut out
Mr. Wallberg had got $70,000 on the
Job.
In May Qf this year Wallberg had
18, contracts running with the Railway Depurtment, and those mentioned above aro samples of the
transactions.
Wallberg and the Marine Department
Mr,  Wallberg has also constructed
number of concrete towers for the
Marino Department und the    Royal
Commission unearthed somo interesting correspondence, ln    relation    to
thom.    The contractor had a way of
writing personal    lotters to   olllcers
who had to deal   with his tenders.
He wrote to the Chief Engineer   of
tho Murine -Department "I trust that
you will be able to recommend our
tender as I fear thoro may be some
peoplo who do not understand this
class of work who may quoto less
that it Is worth.   *  •  •    wc will
be glad to call on you at any timo
if you consider it advisable."    To
tho Deputy   Ministor,    Mr. Wallberg
writes in   tho   samo sense, trusting
that the   Doportmont will   consider
our experience in doing this class of
work."    (Royal  Commission    Report, page 1.73.)    Again (pngo 183)
Mr. Wallborg   wrote to Mr. Templeman, then acting   Minister, reminding htm thnt "tbo Hon. Mr.    Brodeur has    glvon us contracts   for
three t'owers at various times recently without calling for    other
tenders, and I have no doubt that
ho has found our prices -quite  reasonable.      We   trust yon will be
ablo to do llkewlso on other work"
A Proposed Monopoly.
Mr. Wallborg conceived tho Idea
that ho ought to havo a patent
hls concrete lighthouse towers, and
ho proposed to tho Department that
one be secured and that he would go
on building for the Government at a
fair price, the Government to pay
royalty If theso towers wore built
by anyone elso. This scheme corn-
mended itself to some of tho officers
and tho Doputy Minister, and the
business made progress till It camo
up against Colonel Anderson, Chiof
Engineer, whose hot testimony against tho gas buoy contracts has
not boen forgotten. Col. Anderson
could not seo anything now In ro-in-
forced concrete towers, and told tho
acting minister so, and in Mr. Brodeur's absenco the matter waB dropped.

tn the trip as King Edward will
—eat Emperor William at Coburg on
Tuesday and Emperor Francis Joseph at Austria on Wednesday on the
way 4o his favorite watering   place.
That the visits to the two emperors will not be wholly private is suggested by the fact that Sir Charles

to the foreign office, who always ac-
companle* th* King on diplomatic
missions, will be present on both oc-
caalons.        ,

ORAND CHARGE
swore that he had no idea whether
any part would be done by schedule.
There is similar discrepancy and
ignorance In other details. The Deputy Minister thought the sowor was
1,800 feet long, and perhaps 18 feet
deep. But Mr. Wallberg states that
it is 2,880 feet long and 20 to 28
leet deep. Whilo the Doputy Minister thought it might bei5 to 8 feet
diameter at the top, Mr. Wallborg
explains that it ls 14 feet.
The 15 Per Cent. System.
The day labor contract ls this :—
Wallborg hires tho men and teams,
and charges tho cost to the Government, with 15 por cent, additional
as his own profit. At the same time
he is carrying on his own contracts
transferring his men from ono Job
to the other. He hires h'is own
horses and carts from himself, pays
himself tho regulation prico, charges
all to the Government, with 15 per
cent, margin. Whon ho has 50 men
and a dozen teams and is "buying
out f 100 per day, thero is $15 a day
margin for Mr. Wallborg ln addition
to profits on his material. Ho hires
his own foremen and gets his 15
per Cent, on their wages. This wont
on tor a yoar.        "T
No Check.''
Some attempt wus mode to flnd
out what system of chock tho Government had. The Chief Engineer
said he had inspectors to keep account of Mr. Wallborg's mon. After
much labor and obstruction a time-
book was produced. It was a sight
to behold. Mon and teams woro mix
ed in the same statement, and the
namos ol men were omitted altogether. It was tho most pitiful rocord that was ever scon, nnd one
which must bo absolutely useless to
protect the Department from overcharge.
Those records and contradictions
produced much confusion among
member* determined, to shield the
Government, and was so embarrassing that means had to be invented
to break It oft.
Ruled   Out.
Thereupon the obstructors had the
whole Inquiry ruled out on the
grounds that no payments for this
sewer wero yot ln tho Auditor's accounts. It still stood aa an unsettled account and tho majorttv ot the
Committee ruled that tt could not
be investigated.
Neither Mr. Wallberg nor Mr. Mackenzie, nor tho Deputy Minister
would venture a statement whether
this sowor Job wns costing $20,000,
$50,000 or $100,000.
But the Deputy admits that ths
sewer waa a Job by Itself, and waa
not a part of Wallborg's other contracts. It Is. a contract, given on
private terms, without competition,
and one which Wallborg ls making
remarkably profitable.

ENGLISH PAPERS ON THE U. S.
FLEET.
LONiDON, Aug. 10—F*w ol th*
morning pnrfcrs comment on the rr-
rival of tho American fleet in New
Zealand waters and these chiefly to
express regret that no British fleet
Is present to Join in welcoming the
visitors. Tho Times, however, goes
further, saying:
"There is a legitimate feeling ot
pleasure In this most remarkable display of naval force and naval skill
from a nation which above ail others
Is considered the natural ally ot
Great Britain in tho Pacific, and indeed all over the world,"
Tho Times also points out that the
forebodings as to the vastnoss of the
voyage, expressed when the fleet
started from Hampton Road* have
proved groundless, concluding: "America con certainly deem hersolf lucky
to feel herself so secure at homo os
to venture on this experiment. It
has already given Irosh vigor to the
navy here."
CHRIST 0HURCH, N. Z.,Aug 10-
The newspapers hero cordially welcome the arrival in New Zealand waters of the United States Atlantic
fleot. The Christ Church Press in an
article on the visit of the fleet de;
dares thnt the conclusion of the An-
glo-Japoncso alliance "as only a
temporary oxpedlnt" to seourejeace
ond predicts a struggle oh the Pacific In the future In which the United Statos and Great Britain will be
natural allies against the Far Eastern force*,

INHABITANTS OF FEENIE IN UR
GENT NEED OF HELP.
FERNIE, B. C, Aug. 10- Care-
lul analysis o( the situation in regards to the relief in Fernie shows
that condldtious continue urgent for
further financial assistance from the
outside. The money which has been
generously contributed has been to
relieve tho pressure needs of the moment, but tlio future gives cause for
deep concern. In three months winter will be here and by that timo lt
will be necessary to havo homes of
somo kind for. the wholo population.
Hore than 96 per cent, of the population here lost everything they
possessed in v.e recent conflagration
and whjlo..many of these will havo
insurance Ao enable thom to rebuild,
'thsro are ovor 200 miners in addition to mill and other members ol
the working population who will
have iTsohitoly no means immodiato-
ly available with which to make a
be^ii.ning on a now home.
It will be necessary to make somo
provision for these at once. They
must be assisted'to buy clothing,,
bedding and othor household utensils
and what is most important, to
build n shack in which to live during
cold weather.
The needy ones comprise a bigpror
Portion of homeless peoplo and there
will b* widespread suffering, especially among the women and children,
il measures are not promptly taken
to house them. There is no question
of the money being needed at once.
It 1* a _uestiun of how quickly it
be provided by kind-heoriod people throughout Canada.
The policy ol the city eouncll and
of ths committees working in con-
Junction with that body, is well defined, and there is every assurance
that the contributions will be used
to the best advantage.
The lact that no one has suffered
acutely during the past week is due
to the careful manner in which th*
relief has been distributed and this
method will Iio pursued up to the ond
of the chapter. Mayor Turtle ha*
issued an urgent appeal to the people of Canada for further financial
assistance and it is hoi -oil that there
will be a liberal response.
The city is also asking the government of British Columbia lor act—h
grant to be devoted to tho assistance of working peoplo who havo
lost their homes and who must provide at least a portion of another
habitation before winter comes. Ths
measure of assistance to be given by
the Dominion government has not
yet been discussed, but it is believed
that It will be generous. It ia not
likely to le too large, nor can lt
como too soon.
The real danger In the presont
situation lies ln tho sanitary condition. Thero has boon no rain in Fornlo sinco tho flro and as a largo portion of the Population is living In
tents and other temporary accommodations a stato of affairs inimical to
the health of the community is bound
to be created. Every effort is being
made to minimize this danger but

special committee of cttlswns      ap1
