as ho blocked it, linesman Rlskoslg-I
nailed. Refereo Ellis went over to I
him and pointed for a goal kick. Uo-1
fore tho kick was taken Riske broke
into the field and thero wns another j
consultation as a result of which El
lis ordered a corner. Tho kick was
nicely taken nnd from a regular
scramblo in front of gonl ■ the ball
was netted. From whero tho writer
was standing the seoror looked to bo
oflsido, and the local pluyers in n
position to know confirm this vlow.
Howovor, Ellis wos not in a good
position to judgo for himself, and it
was not surprising that ho allowed
the point. His mistake was made
in giving tho corner. Thero was never any reason to consult Riske.   He
vwas better placed than tho linesman.
"find, in awarding a corner, ho displayed (i lament able lack of judgment and backbone. It is, of courso,
poor sportsmanship and bad form to
boot to attribute dishonest motives
to a referee. . Uut on Saturday's
gamo Mr. Ellis hns himself to blame
if it is charged agninst him that ho
favorod tho Calodoniuns. He was after Adam all the match, whilo the
grossly dirty play of Park wont'unnoted and unchecked. The question
of motive altogether apart, there Is
no question that Mr. Ellis was a
pronounced failure as a referee.
I However, there is another "but."
During one of Ladysmith's fierce rallies In the second half the ball was
'deliberately handled by ono of the defending players. It may or may not
havo beon in the penalty area, but
at all events It was perilously- near

HONORING
THE COLORS
Football   Boys    Given    a   "Hiyu"
Time by Lady Supporters.
There wus a gay time in tho opera house last night when a social
was giv on ia honor oi tho football
boys. It has boon tho fate of tho
boys this season to figure in two
linals, and to fall just short of complete success. But their failure to
lift cup or shield has in no wise
dimmed tho pride of their followers
in their achievements, and thore has
been no abatement in the support
accorded thom because thoir efforts
did not obtain the laurel crown. The
boys have had a strenuous season,
established an undying fame for
grit, and forced their opponents to
recognize and acknowledge thoir merits.
Everybody wanted them to get the
Shield, but even in tholr hour of
failure and defeat, roll tribute WrS
paid to thoir heroic and. meinornble
struggle. Last night they were tho
guests of a pnrty of their fair admirers and supporters. They could
not bo greoted us conquering heroes,
hut heroes thoy wore all the snme,
and tho ladies left nothing undone
to prove thoir anient devotiou to
tho club colors.
The hall had beon tastefully do-
cbrated, rod arid white, of course,
loing tho dominoiit colors, and tho
affair was os great, a success as it
was on agreoablo surprise to the
players. Tho spoils ■ do not always

what >the boys are capable of.
There is only one other   point   to
make regarding the game.    This
that the stato of tho ground suited i
the Caledonians better than   it   did |
the locals.    Rain began to fall    on
Friday afternoon and continued all
night and all tho next morning.   It
did fair up a littio in time for   the
match, but,    the   field was then   In
wretched    shape.      The   bare parts
wore soft and    heavy and tho   turf
sodden and groasy.    Tho homo boys
were unablo   to    hold   their feet In
thoir    rushes,    and    many of their
j swinging passes wont astray.     Tho
("Callies," on tho    other hand,   got
around without difficulty and    their
short, crisp style of passing was nover at fault.    It doos not follow thot
they would be any tho less effective
on a dry ground, but It is tho bare |
truth that on Saturday tholr   play
was less affected by tho condition  of
the ground than that of the   locals

goals appoared anything but'difflcult
Tho style   of    the Calgarians' play
was different to anything seen   horo,
though it much resembles that .of the
Garrison team of 1005.    The    team
works    mechanically,—as    one man.
Tho two full-backs aro tho only ones
who do heavy kicking and they certainly are there    when it comes to
using thoir feet and equally good aro
they with body or hoad. The beauty
of their play is tho rapidity and accuracy with    which    thoy   pass the
ball.    No sooner do thoy socuro   it
than it is away and it was by such
work that they fairly tricked the local defence ln the last 20 minutos of
tho game, though tliey did not    add
to the score.    It must bo admitted
tho lociiPtenm was caught when    it
was woak.      None of tho men   had
played for two weeks, and    Hewitt
was    off,    his     substitute   Toague,
though playing well in the first half,
was not in condition to put up   his
best gamo, and besides, was making
his first appearance ln senior,   company.   Peters, though , good in'   tho
first, was woak ln the socond.     Ho
didn't wish to play and should   not

and white* dovolopod ono of   those
  amaxing and unexpected apurts which
ging in hard and tiring, the other
cool, and as one man, as strong at
the finish as when at the start.
Tho first half throughout was vory
evonly contested though the  visitors
lod by two goals.    During this period the    Callies   had showed grand
defence work both In the full   back
and half lines.   Tho forwards   were
well watched by the Nanaimo backs,
yet scored two easy goals. The Calgary goal   was almost   pierced   un
three occasions, one cross shot from
Hooper hitting tho bar, out of  McLean's reach.      The   Nanaimo   forwards were more often dangerous in
this period than woro tho rival front
rank but in the second the   Callies
settled down and from gonl out   began    to outclass     their opponents.
Tho great footwork of W.   Stewart
at centre and his splendid wing men
was   a   revelation,    and they wore
backed up by that votorun .Scotchman, Strang at centre-half, the two
sturdy mon on either   side of  him,
and' the toworing forms of   Morgan
and Ross at   back.   -Beaten though
the locals were tho spectators   woro
delighted    with the exhibition that
the visitors showed and thoir    play
was admired all round the  field. Of
course thero waa any number of arm
chair critics, Judges of play (?) and
such like, who    wore ever ready   to
tell the local boys  what thoy should
have done whon thoy wore not successful.
The champions rocoivod a hearty
round of applause when they camo
across the Sold to the dressing room
and before they lined up they had
to face photographer King.
Their line-up was somewhat changed a* Ross went out of goal to loft
back, and Morgan took tho right
back position. McLean went in goal.
Mason went on at half, replacing
Park. The told was in splendid]
shape and the rain had cleared off
before the game commenced,
Over 1,000 people wero present
when the teams began, tho Callies
with a (light and fluctuating breeze
bohlnd them. , The visitors broke
away, but Teague early repelled and
Crooky put into touch. Ross soon
after got his long leg In action and
the ball went skying to Nanaimo's
end. Hooper dashed ebon nftor and
McLean    was    called   on to clear.

the minister of public worka, announced Wednesday, the 22nd. On
Monday, April 13, Mr. Pugsley intimated that certain dredging contract* made for laat year would be
contlBued iu the coming souson without tender* at tho same rates por
yard. Noxtuay Mr. Bennett brought
up the matter and the minister explained that contractors dredging at
Midland and It* neighborhood had
good equipment, that tbo work at
theae points wa* extremely urgent,
and the price reasonable, wherefore
lt wa* not desirable to delay the
work by calling for new tenders.
Thaa followed a sharp discussion,
Mr. Bennett, Mr. Haggart, Mr. Taylor, Mt»Blain, Dr. Sproule and others protesting against thla method
of abolishing competition. . They
pointed out that if ono season's contract couhYbe extended through another year tt might go on forever.
If thl* were done on two or three
contract* lt could be done on all, so
that the present contractors, most
of tbem politicians, would have a
universal monopoly.
The matter (tood over until alter
Barter, when Mr. Pugsley waa to
have brought down the order-in-coun

pleaded that sinco tbe order-in-coun
ed, and   under the rule* the paper*
ware placed oa the table*.
It wa* then seen wby Mr. Pugsley
did not wish to produce the document*. Ho had recommended the
extension, without tenders, of no less
than eleven contract*, not. only a-
round Midland, where he claimed the
work wa* urgent, but at other points
on Georgian Bay and othor lakes,
and also In Nova Scotia, and, in
fact all over the country, where any
contractor had found hia work pro,
fitable and waa oppoaod tp new tendon. With one accord thoso con-
tractora who had a good proposition naked for a new contract on
tha old terms, and ln evory caso Mr.
Pngiley consented. He went
through the form of asking the deputy and the government ongineers
whether the price waa right and the
work eatlafactory, Unanimously
th* officer* ol the department commended tho contractors, praised their
plant and declared tho prico reasonable. Tha deputy, however, pro.
tactod himself by reminding the minister that It had been the custom of
th. department to call for new tender* every year and that he wa* proposing an entirely new departure.
A SCHEME THAT FAILED.
Mr, Pugaley roconunondod the departure, council gave him authority
to carry It out and everything was
going on beautifully whon the discussion raisod In the house brought
about a chonga.    Mr. Pugaley'* ar
before taking the title, paid tho
partners what was required to complete their original purchase. This
neat rako-olf Is good for the middlemen, but why Bhould not Commissioner Young, a Winnipeg mnn who
knew before anyone else whnt site
would bo choson, have ..bought tho
land at tho original prico of $09,000
instead of paying $222,000? This
ts mt Mr. Matthews' only negotiation with tlio government. Two
years ago lie was president of the
Wostorn Tower and Developing Company, which was socking the right

ALLEY TO 'JUKE HUSBAND'S  PLACE.    '
Mra. Richard A. Alley, of Soattlo,
haa announced that she will continue tho management of the Alley line
of subsidized steamships, taking the
position left vacant by tho death of
hcr husband recently.
The Seattle Times says:
"Mrs. Bichord A. Alloy, a prominent figure for tho last two years in
Soattlo society, has decided to continue lho steamship lino operated by
her late husband between Urltish
Columbia and New Zoaland; This
decision has been received with no
little interest and surprise. Young
and boautiful as sho is, the thought
of hard work and dull business cares
does not readily associate with Mrs.
Alley; who ls as accomplished in the
social arts as sho Is clover Ih grasping the details of the steamship business.
'Some of hcr friends have tried to
dissuade her from this purpose, but
she Is firm in her decision to continue and build up the business of
her lato husband. She has for some
time been . In a way familiarizing
herself with the general affairs of the
company, and hns acquired a wonderful fund of detail information
which will make her-personal management and control a. matter of
little work to herself."

METHODIST  GENERAL CONFERENCE NEXT WEEK.
BALTIMORE, May 6.- The advance guard of delegates and visitors to the general conference ct the
Methodist Episcopal church, which
opens in the   city next Wednesday,
,	
ha* already arrived.     From remote
I ports of the world delegates, ministerial and lay, are hastening hither.
Few countries where civilization hs*
penetrated will lack representation
when the opening session Is called to
order.
Ths general conference convenes every four years. It is tne governing
body of the church and combines the
legislative, executive and judicial
powers ot tbe organization. The gathering this year will consist ot a-
tout one thousand delegates.
Several important subjects are to
come up for discussion and action at
the general meeting this year. Legislation will be framed and adopted
for the colleges and universities and
officer* appointed for the various.benevolent organizations, missions,
church extension, Sunday schools,
etc. Secretaries will be appointed
for tbe various church enterprises,
and editors chosen for the fourteen
or more periodicals of the church.
The great fight of the session is
expected to be over the amendment
for the election of race bishops. Tho
indications are that the amendment
is doomed to. defeat. Those opposed to the amendment declare that
the negroes have expressed no great
desire for it, while th* white people,
particularly ln the south, are bitterly opposed to It. It is further stated that wM'j tne scheme would probably operate to the advantage of
the Methodist missions and churches
as well in foreign lands, it would so
greatly decrease the scope of the
present board of bishops as to make
the Changs at present undesirable. It
also would necessitate an enlargement of the present house of bishop*
it is assented, beyond the requirement* ol present conditions, and
that the ends attained are not suf-1
flciently urgent to warrant such a
change.
A question on which lt is expected
very positive opinions will be expressed Is a proposal to restore the
time limit in pastoral appointments.
Eight years ago the time limit was
removed. The change has been a
cause for dissatisfaction among ambitious ministers, who believe the
best pulpits are not open to them
because the congregations elect to
keep a pastor as long as he suits
them. Memorials expressive of disfavor toward a continuance of the
present policy of the church in this
respect nre said to have been adopted by nearly two-thirds of the annual conferences throughout the coun
try during the post year, and lt Is
confidently believed by those who favor the time limit that thl* year
will mark a return to the lormer
method.
The question of making the presiding eldership an elective office is not
generally looked upon as a disturbing factor, and It is not thought any
Immediate change In thl* particular
will result from the conference members' deliberations. The proposal to
abolish or modify the amusement restrictions in- the church discipline Is
believed to stand a good chance of
being adopted .this year. It is admitted that many Methodists do not
generally recognize the ban placed hy
tho church upon card playing, theatre-going, and dancing, and this will
bs used a* one of the arguments a-
gainst the policy of the church in
trying to regulate these matter*.

Father Vaughan's Now Play Depicts

CHICAwO, May 6.— Gasps of astonishment came Irom an audience,
composed largely ol Roman Catho-
lica^when the curtain was lifted on
the second scene ol the Rev. T. J.
Vaughan'* j>lay" "A Woman ol tho
West," produced in the Bush Temple theatre last night. The interior of a Catholic church, showing
the altar and an actor in the vestment of a person performing the
ceremony of mass were presented and
continued for almost three minutes.
The presentation stirred the large
number of Catholic priests and the
church memiofs ln the audience into
an excited discussion and church action Is expected.
Father Vaughan said he had not
consulted with hia superiors in reference to the depiction oi the mass
upon ths stage. "To* celebration
of nuts* Is stopped before the consecration of tbs holt, it is simply
picture," he said, "A living painting
