Thc homo boys will piny their first
real game ol tho soason toduy. There
is so much football talent in Vancouver that u truly representative
teum ennnot but be a strong und
dangerous combination. The writer
has always regarded the Terminal
City as the danger spot in this Pacific 'Const rLoague. If tho boys can
pull oil the match there toduy, ur
even divido the points, tho team that
catches them will, iu the vernacular,
hnvo to ho going some.
The chances for tho gamo, so far
as they can bo figured out, are certainly encouraging. The only cause
for fear is the luck of practice tho
f6rwards have liad togethor. The material is all there, and, once a working understanding is established,
groat things may bo expected-of it.
Tho forward lino will decide tho
gnmcon Suturduy. There does not
appear to be any star forwards in
the Vancouver football firmament,
ond lho homo defence should safely
dispose of tho attack.
The duel will be between the homo
vanguard nnd tho Vancouver defence,
and thero is not the slightest doubt
that tho Mainland hnvo a brilliant
rear-guard. Jimmy will bo up against his old opponent Strang; but
the Calgary man will hnve to enlarge his attentions this time, nnd
ho had nothing to spare last time.
It is hardly likely .that Gingor McLean will be able to play; but Gunzon and Strange nro nvnilablo, and
McEwnn .is buck, into tho gnmc again. Forrest and Graham, along
with Strang on the halves, ought to
make it fairly interesting for the forwards.
Ilo\y the Vancouver pooplo regard
the match mav be gathered from the
following, which Is taken from    the
_sg___j______ is _ _j _ " ■ ____
World: "Ladysinith are undoubtedly a powerful side and lho Winnipeg playors wero the bost they could
bring wost. They cuuld practically
constitute a team out of theso recently poached players, but Jimmy
Adiun will certainly bo in his old
place at center forward. Hc will be
up against a half back who hold
him down noutly last your in the
People's Shield gnu,*.'
In oxpluiintiun of this it may be
sail! that tho "World" has boon importing Winnipeg men for Ladysmith
all this lust month, it hnd the total up to eight a week ago, and
now it hns grown to full team slzo.
Jimmy is the only ninn loft to us,
and ho Is only a neat handful for
Strang.    Wo will seo.
Tho Rxocutivo Committee last night
selected the players, but did not definitely assign thom thoir positions.
Hartley is still afraid of his hand,
and oskod to be excused, and so tho
following players wero selected:
Backs—Morrison, Christian, O'Connoll.
Halvos—Main, Strang, Wynne.
Forwards — McPowall, McGuire,
Adam, Brass, Graham, Provins.
After tho Vancouvor gamo, the result of which will lie wired to Blnir
& Adam's store. the boys will take
the bout for Seattle, whoro they are
down for another Loague game,
Vancouver   Team.
'   Tho 'Vancouver teum, according   to
a despatch in Friday's  Herald,  is:
Backs—McLean nnd Gunzon.
Halves— Grnhaui,  Strang, Forrest.
Forwards—Shawcross, Nanson, Robertson, J. A. Jonos.

Ladysmith, Ootober 7th, 1008.
Now that the election with all Its
excitement is ovor and tho town is
resuming its wonted guit, it is time
to take up the question which for u
time it was agreed to drop. It wns
a great pity thnt the movement to
start an Athletic Club should havo
had to be postponed. Tho time was
Just ripe for tho movement, and hud
the meeting thut was cnlled boen
hold, and a strong committee appointed on the lines laid down by
the Standard the ball by now might
have been under wny.
As it is tho mattef* should not be
allowed to drop. Rather it should
be taken up immediately and pushed
nhead. Thoro is general agreement
that the postponement of niTairs hus
lusted Uong enougn, and this question of nn Athletic Ifall is one of tho
first that needs to be taken up.
NEW YORK, Oct. 30—Charges were
made by Norman E. Mock, of tho
Democratic National Committee thut
tho declaration of John D. Rockefeller for Taft for president, was the
result of the deal between the Republican National Comuiittoe and
the Standard Oil Company's interests, whereby the national Chairman
Hitchcock received large campaign
contributions and Mr. Rockefeller tho
Mr. Mack says that undoubtedly
the twenty-nine million dollar fine
on tho Standard )0il Company would
be fixed up in tho evont of Mr. Taft
being elected, as a part of tho bargain.
The Democratic national chairman
said the Standard Oil Company had
landed where everybody thought it
would land. Mr. Rockefeller hold
hack for a bargain and got what ho
wanted. His declaration for Taft
is good for ut least one hundred
thousand votes in the doubtful stnt-
I cannot speculate on the exact amount the Republican National
Committee received from Mr. Rocko-
foller, but can rest assured they hnv0
both received thoir price. Hitchcock
getting the money and Rockefeller
the promises which suggest the question whether Taft is with Rockefeller
or Roosevelt, We now have on
Oil Trust and tho Steel Trust lined
up side by side, working for Tnft's
candidacy. Mr. Carnegie's statement yesterday on his arrival from
Europe; that tho election of Mr.
Bryan would be a tragedy is not
only shocking, but should arouse tho
indignation of all fair-minded citizens of the country regardless of
pnrty affiliation. Mr. Carnegie, I
am reliably informed, is not even a
votor in this country."
National Chairman Mack declared
that he had learned that tho Republican National Committee had a campaign fund of 83,000,000 and that
of this sum two-thirds were boing
used for purposes of coersion and
bribery. The national chairman
said further that $200,000 of tho
Republican campaign fund had boen
sent into Indiana and that more
than that sum had been sent to the
state of Ohio.
William J. Bryan the Democratic
candidato for president, gave out a
statement hero today commenting on
the declarations of John P. Rockefeller, made in New York yesterday,
that ho would voto for Wm. H. Taft,
Mr. Bryan snld ho was not surprised
at the declarations of Mr. Rockefeller, as the Standard Oil Company
nnd the Republican party have boon
so closely related that many of tholr
Interests are Identical. In the statement Mr. Bryan says:
"Mr. Taft has licon making speeches for mnny wooks, nnd ho has not
yet dwelt upon ths Iniquities of the
trusts, or pointed out the injustices
dono the American peoplo by them.
No wonder Mr. Rockefeller is for Mr.
Taft. Again Mr. Rockefeller says
that Mr. Tuft's election will make
for law and order. This is false.
Mr. Rockefeller's corporation is tho
most notorious law-breaker in the
United States and he is for Taft
because he does not want the
"Mr. Rockefeller also says
Mr. Tuft's eioction will moke
stability ol business. What kind is
it that he means? The things that
Mr. 'Putt's olection will enable the
trusts to get a tighter strnnglo
grasp on the American people and
put their extortion upon a more
permanent foundation. He says Mr.
Toft Is not a man inclined to rash
experiments. He might have omitted the word "rash" lor Mr. Taft is
not in favor of any kind of experiment in tho way of remedial legislation.
Tho Democrats have reason to be
grateful to Mr. Rockefeller for tearing the mask off the Republican campaign, revealing tho duplicity that
characterized It, instead of openly
attacking the Side of monopoly, tlie
Republican organization has kept up
a pretenco on reform and Mr. Roosevelt rushod Into the arena and allowed the charge that the trusts
wore opposed lo Mr. Taft to stand."
NEW YORK, Oct. 30.-Taft and
Bryan, presidential candidates for
tho presidency, after their almost
hand to hand struggle last night for
the support of Syracuse and Onondaga county, Talt speaking there at
two meetings, at four o'clock parted
company today and probably will
not again come within point blank
rango of ono another.
Taft remains in the hotly contested territory of New York state, and
Bryan goes on to take a hand
tho final fight of the Democrats for
the electoral votes of Ohio, Indiana
und 111 nois. Mr, Bryan travelled
today through .Ohio delivering a number of speeches ut various places in
the home state of his Republican opponent. ...John W. Kern, the Democratic vice-presidential candidate,
continues his tour of Indiana today,
which stato Mr. Bryan expects to
reach tomorrow. Indiana was also
tho contre of activity of E. W. Cbaf-
lin and E, S. Watlins, presidential
and vice-presidential candidates ol
tlie Prohibition party.
Announcement was made this morning that the Independence party
campaign would be closed with a big
meeting in Brooklyn tonight and another tonight in Carnegie Hall, Manhattan. Hisgen and Greaves, the
candidates ot that party for president and vice-ptesident, will be at
both, assisted by W. H. Hearst, who
is chairman of the party's national
executive committee.
The campaign for the governorship
of New York state continued today
with unabated vigor, both candidates, Hughes and Chandler, speaking
at soveral points during the day,
with meetings scheduled for tonight.

To Nanaimo in a box car was the
experience of tho football boys on
thoir first long trip of the season,
und thuy were lucky to got that-i
so at least they were told.
Tho E. _ N. Railway Co., have
made a practice of issuing passenger tickets for freight trains, and
there has boon no notlco that tho
practice would be discontinued. Ac-i
cordingly us tho best wny of getting
to Vancouvor, the boys decided to
take iho freight train to Nunaimo
und cross on lhe Joan, 'rickets were
obtained and the boys waited round
tho depot, only to be told by Conductor Fletcher thnt they would not
lie allowed to travel.
Tho Conductor's reasons were first
thut twenty men in a caboose would
impede tho train gang in their work.-
Also tho caboose was the homo ofthe train mon. Thoy lived in it, ate
and slept in it and they did not
caro to have it crowded with men.
This was reasonable enough hut con-
sidorlng the plight the boys were in,
the intelligence come rather   late.
Finally, ns a general concession,
thoy were nllowed to travel in an
empty box car, »■■' 'hey bumped
along happily onough to Nanaimo.
However, thero will bo no freight
bookings unless there nro definite instructions that they fun travel. Certainly it would never do again to
trust, to the tender consideration of
n conductor who for years lived in
the town, nnd who. one would have
thought, would willingly havo suffered a littio inconvenience to help on
the boys.
CHICAGO, Oct. 80—Ten million

Now that wo havt settled tho    affairs of the Dominion for four moro
years, or had them settled for    us,
we may once again   turn our attention to   matters which moro nearly
concern us all.     Thero is no doubt
ait all that tho people feel moro than
disappointed that tho winter is once
moro to be passed in darkness.    We
have heard a  good deal of dissatisfaction expressed, and listened to  «
great deal of casual and calculated
criticism of tho council.     Of course
it is easy onough to ask what    the
Council has been doing, and to   declare that something ought to have
been done long beforo this.   The fact
is that   Mayor     and Aldermen fool
just about    as     much,  and maybe
more, disappointed then any of   tho
citizens at the slow progress    which
has boon made.     The great difficulty
has beon that tho sum to be borrowed was not largo enough to attract
investors.    What otters tho city havo
received    have all involved a  great
sacrifice,    and as no one can blame
the Council for standing out for the
best terms they can get.    The negotiations with the 0,P. railway company at flrst     promised a  satisfactory solution of the difficulty.     Tho
big railway    company   had already
given proof of its interest in the city
by its land clearing operations, and
it was natural to conclude that,   if
it could be induced to tako up    the
electric light debentures,  the stability of the town would bo practically
guaranteed.     It was this consideration more thnn anything else    that
has led tho council to wait so    long
upon the pleasure and convenience-of
the railway company.
The time has now como to take a
fresh stop. The sower by-law wants
to be hurried through, tho sums to
9* borrowed lumped torethor,. and
■"" wholo offered to the Eastern
It is improbable that the
debentures will' bo taken up at par,
but thero is a much bettor chanco
of obtaining fair terms with the blp-
ger figure. From a business point
of view the transactions need to be
hurriod through as much as possible.
The town, after years of stagnation,
has only commenced to waken up.
More has been done ln tho way of
buildings and improvements In the
last three months thnn in the throo
years preceding thom. Nothing-

It speaks so much at random that
it forgets what it has said. One day
it statos: "The McBride machine
slipped a cog in the Nanaimo constituency. Ralph Smith occupies a
position of 'splendid isolation' toduy in British Columbia., Ho is on-
titled to all the glory of winning a
bitter fight against overwhelming
odds." The odds wero a three-cornered fight—Smith's only salvation.
Even thon he only scraped out, and
wo shall tako the Times to prove
that ho is only representing one-
third of tho electorate. "The arrangement between Premier McBride
and Mr. Hawthornthwaite," says the
Times the next day, "that tho Socialists of Victoria should vote for
Barnard in consideration of the Conservatives of Nanaimo district voting for Hawthornthwaite workod all
right for the Conservative candidate
In Victoria, but just at present neither Mr. Shepherd nor the Socialist
onndidato in Nanaimo appreciate the
arrangement. It certainly was
rough on Shepherd." Smith, then,
was helped by Conservatives in Nanaimo, and on the same authority,
In Esquimalt and Sidney.
The secret and likewise the mystery of the whole ^thing was, to uso
Times phrase, the "grand vote"
at Esquimalt. It was a strange
vote in every sense of the word. Even with this vote, without the Conservative holp in Nanaimo, Smith
was beaten. Ralph is beaten anyway. He is dishonored in his own
district,  politically down and out.
Ing, and, wllh propor handling, the
actual work of Installation may be
commenced Iwforo the Council's term
of office expires.
The "Times" ls clearly a very
sick newspaper. It put up a great
fight for Its proprietor, as It was
bound to do. Thore was nothing
left unsaid that could In any    way
Take tho Times for it. The total poll to hand is 4210. One third
ot that figure is 1400, and Ralph
has 1500 votes. The Times tolls ue
that Conservatives voted for Hawthornthwaite, and had previously
told us that Conservatives would
voto for Smith, Wo know: also that
an attempt was made to turn Conservative votes to Smith in Nanal'
mo. If there ls anything in all
these things Ralph's own vote would
not have reached 1400. Tho Times
Is altogether too smart.
According to the Herald, Smith is
entering a suit against Jas. Young,
of Nanaimo, for criminal libel. ' The
alleged libel was contained in some
campaign pamphlet entitled Young's
Bulletin. We have not seen the Bulletin, but Mr. Smith will flnd it a
hard matter to establish libel, and
he would have done better to leave
well alone.

This declaration was made by Matheson himself in the office of James

has accepted a position as a representative of the conipany.
"Baseball shall probably see mo no
more, that is, as a professional,"
said Mathewson. "The inducements
oflered me in the insuranoo business
are so great that I would either
have to sacrifice a business career or
base! all life, and I should choose
the former.
It may mean a great deal to the
New jYork club and probably to
thousands of fans throughout the
city, but I have besn in the gamo
eight years now as a professional
player and will probably be forced
to quit the game before the termination of two years more. For that
reason I have been looking around
for something to do when my timo
as a  plnyor is rounded out.
liie insurance business showed hi,;
opportunities and I have accepted
this position, not ,ns a matter of
necessity, but in order to be prepared for a buslnoss career when 1

NEW YORK, Oct. 27.—When Cardinal Gibbons was asked his opinion
on the divorce evil, he said:
'Divorce is one of the crying evils
of the day, in which the church is
vitally interested. Our stand is unassailable. There should be no di-
vorco at all; it pleases mo immensely to hear that Bishop Greer and
other prominent members of other
churches fool as we do In the Catholic church.
Divorce today, and I say it without reserve, ls the one black spot
upon American civil zation. It is
terrible, unspeakable, outrageous.
The number ol divorces in the .United States in proportion to the population, is ths greatest in the world
Think of that stain on our eschu-
The solvation of society depends
upon the family. The salvation oi

nnd you virtually dissolve socioty
Only when the sanctity of the marriage tic and the obligations of tho
fuiuily relations are more fully realized and religiouB training n the family becomes more gonoral, may we
look for better conditions in society
at large, and not until then.
Sucredness of Marriage.-
The great crimes and scandals that
ure exciting so much comment nowadays can be traced directly to c
tack of sanctity in tho family relations. It is not so much marriage,
but the sucredness of marriage that
must be rewgnized. Until then society can hardly hope to improve.
The church takes an unaKerablo
position with regard to divorgo —
there can be nono for any cause
whatsoever. If people contemplating matrimony realized this, and
found out beforehand whother they
were suited to ono nnother there
wouldn't be so., much work for the
divorce courts to do.
Marriage is a woman's destiny. It
is tho aim of hor life. Her work
should be for hor huslmnd and her
children and hor home. Anything
thnt interferes with her in this, ,her
true sphere, is wrong, nnd divorce

The food which Nana ate was specially prepnred in tho servant's kitchen, where Nana has her own service of dishes, which Is to be used
by nono of the other dogs intlio hotel.
The hoad porter, to whose tender
mercies most persons staying in hotels confide their pets, has nothing
to do with Nana. Nono of his sub-
ordinntes, who usually take other
dogs out for thej) daily exercise, are
to go near tho Frenoh poodle. Tho
only exercise which Naoa is to havo

the maid, who loads tho animal forth
at 'the end of a  now pink ribbon.
The dog is remarkably intelligent,
oven for a French poodle, and has
of learned many tricks from its tutor.
That the animal may not catch cold
during its walks blankets of various
weights are provided.
There are some tine dogs at tho
Plaza, but Nana is not permitted to
mingle in their society. They are

VICTORIA, Oct. 29.-J. S. Bailey,
manager of tho Seamen's Institute,
has been advised that Edward W.
Matthews, secretary of the British
and Foreign Sailors' Society of London, Eng., who is making, a journey through Canada from coast to
coast, on a special mission for the
organization which he represents,
will arrive in the city today. Be is
making tho preliminary arrangement
for a big undertaking which tho
societj contemplates. This is tho
patriotic, educational and philnn-
throplc scheme of placing a Nelson
shield in every school of Canada.
The shiold is a vory handsome plcco
of work, made of copper from Nelson's ships, the Victory and Fon-
droyant, and shows Nelson's flagship and the bust of tho great admiral himself. The copper shiold is
tho gift of Lord Strathcona, with
whose kind help the society is attempting to place one In every Canadian school. Lord Strathcona has
donated §5,000 to assist the project
which also is favored by the lords
of the admiralty and his majesty
King Edward VII.
Besides its historic and patriotic
value, the shield is intended to bo a
stimulus to the pupils. Every yoar
thoy will be asked to write a paper
on a sailor subject, of educational
and patriotic value. .The writer of
tho best essay will bo presented with
the shield and will hnve the ho;.or
of holding It for one year.
On his way through Canada Mr.
Matthews is conferring in the centres of population with tho ministers
of education nnd leading educators,
and everywhere the scheme of tho
Nolson shields Is meeting with tholr
warm encouragement and support.
Mr. Matthews -has boen secretary
of the British and Foreign Sailors'
