There has been a slight alteration
in the dato of the next match in liie
Shield competition, and consequently
the iinul has ulso been postponed.

Tho winners in lhat game will

on seeing the game on Saturday, but

Story of the Complications in     tho
Shiold Competition Concluded.
By its victory over Nanaimo on
Saturday, the Ladysmith Football
Club won its right to participate in
the final game for the People's Shield

Air. hi. M. Whyte. What all this
reully amounted to was that Mr.

willing to have Ladysmith shut out

the eoiuuiUiee—on    nothing stronger

of tho championship of Canada. But
it was only by a   very narrow, margin that tho    club     was given    tho
right to compete at all.

THE GAP
Cowichan   Correspondent Announces
Birth of Now Industries.
Messrs. Hugh Thornton and John
Rothwell havo commenced to build
a salmon cannery with a department
for canning clams and othor kinds of
fish at Cowichan Gap for a young
English capitalist, who has been
uoking ovor the fishing grounds for
the past few years. Ho has selected
and bought out a place on Valdcs
Island, for, in his opinion, Cowichan
Gup is tho best location and moro
fish are to bo caught thore. This Is
undoubtedly true, for It Is a woll
known fact that the Capital Canning
Co., of Victoria, ran a stoombout to
collect the flsh arid always got a
full load of ('oboes and rod spring
salmon throe timos a week. It is
certain, therefore that this now cannery will put up a good phek.
Thore aro also rumors of a canning company from Victoria building at tho Gap on tho north end of
Guliano Island, whoro thore Is
plentiful supply of wator to bo got
from a lake called "Shaw's.Lake.
Thoro is also a company looking
for a placo to locate for on ollery,
for which they will utllizo the dog
fish which abound In theso waters.
They -will also convert tho rofuso
Into ii  fertiliser.
A now industry has sprung up at
Cowichan Gap. Somo Chinese from
Vancouver keep tho Indians busy gathering a kind of son wood or kelp,
for which thoy pay from 0 to 9c a

wus not only arbitrary but manifestly unfair in tbe action of the committee as long as Ladysmith was in

eagerly acquiesced in.
However, Mr. Graham did not insist on these points, and it has to
bo remembered that bis hands had
to some extent been forced by the
notion of some of the players. No
club can be altogether blamed lor
attempting to get rid ot a danger-
oue rival by any fair means that are
open to it, although the means may
not savor too much of true sporte-
ip. Air. Graham paased the
whole thing up to tbe committee,
and be frankly declared that 11 tbey
made the competition on open one,
then Ladysmith could not be stopped from playing. He thought hlm- '
sell th.... had a perfect right to
play; but he insisted on a draw. If
Calgary did not go into the hat
with the other three teams, than
Nanaimo would withdraw.
This alao was Lad; smith's position. The committee had already

t Waste of money  at Ottawa
. IN MARINE DEPARTMENT.
1908
"J Ottawa, April 11
(Special Correspondence).
This week we have the printed copy of the Royal Commission   report
on tbe Civil Service, and with it the
notes and memoranda by which Mes.
srs. Fyshe and Bazln (the two   Liberal   commissioners)     Justify    their
charges ugainst the Marine Department.  Some of the charges ure that
"work proceeds in a lumbering, haphazard way," and "constant   blundering and   confusion"; that there is
"no sign of u directing hoad or intelligent   purpose     except   that    of
spending us much monoy us possiblo;
that there is a "lack of conscience";
that olllcers must be "assisting  tho
trador to got better prices from tho
Government   than he   can got   anywhere else," nnd that some   officials
"ere serving two mastors."
Too Much ICantslip
Tho Commissioners find an official
statement that 225,000 could be saved In the Quebec agency alone  by n
chnngo of methods.    They find supplies ordered that wcre not required
and officers uncortain   whothor   tho
goods wore rocoivod.      A substance
usod on   leather   belts was supplied
by an agent introduced to tho   ofti-
c'fls by tho Minister of.Justice and
commended by tho Minister of  Marino.    This youth unloaded so   much
goods   on   tbo agency that tho  deportment could find no uso for   It,
so the   minister,   instructed tho  agent "to try and got rid of them tn
tho best advantage."     (Pago 77.)
A Craze for Extinguishors.
In 1005-5 tho   department hnd   n
mania for buying chemical lire extinguishers, and paid 80,000 for a hon-
vy order, of which 142 wero sent to
Quebec, and a largo quantity stored
in Plpntroul.    This supply wns   for-
gotton, and the next yeur ono   Mr.
Porrenult   was selling oxtinguishers,
and the    department at Quebec was
instructed from Ottawa to buy from
him.       Ho bought    hoaf'.ly.    Thon
■Porroault was takon into tho service
nnd tho Quebec     chief officor wrote
that Porroault "has a lot of flro extinguishers on hand, which ho would
like to soil to tho depurtinont as he
is a poor man with a family."    It
is    added that    "tho late' Inmonted
minister was Porroiuilt's   friend and
fully recognized    tho worthiness of
tho   suid    extinguishers."    So   tho
goods wore bought. Afterwards thore
was a great   strugglo to dispose of
the vust accumulation piled   up    in
Montreal and Quebec. (Pnge 70.)
which the deportment hus bought in
prodigious   numbers, discard oxpen-
makos and soils acetylene gus buoys
Tho Acetylene iluoy Epidemic.
Since    the   beginning of 1005 the
Department of Murine has paid $1,-
000,000 to tho International Murine
Signal   Company,     formerly   T. L.
Wilson,   of   Ottawa.    This  concorn
sivo and serviceable appliances. Commissioners   Fysho    nnd Bazln   show
plainly their belief thut tho department bought these goods  for   other-
roasons   thun the good of tho   service.    Thov point out that tho first
sample was offered for tost in  August, 1904.    Only two months   later
the department    decided that theso
gas buoys would nut bo used exclusively.    No   less    thun 40, costing
$148,000, wero immediately ordered,
and Wilson    wus nllowed to import
tho material freo of duty.   Tho Commissioners say ;
"This was a good beginning for
Mr. Wilson und with tin.,splendid facilities extended to hlm by the Department he hus not been slow to
better lt. It muy seem that In Inking up with the now idea so largely
und so suddenly the Depurtinont wus
hardly acting with the prudonce required by the circiiinstuiices. New
ideas aro not apt to reach a perfoct
development alt at onco and tho
most ordinary consideration would
seem to have culled for more caution."
Progressive Ideas.
Tho Commission sarcastically observes that tho official wos "anlnt-
atod by vory progressive ideas," and
in July, 1905, put in recommendations for 1300,000, somo buoys ut
.$15,000, some ut $8,500 some lit
$9,000. The Commissioners ussert
that these woro ordered beforo the
oillciais know whnt thoy would do
with thom. They find Wilson addressing tho Marino and Fishery agent at Quebec "as if the lottor was
an employee of his own." (Pago
155.) Tney charge that large orders woro mudo for boys of a class
novor tested, that the ^800,000 contract wiis mudo without authority of
council, und that whilo tho department at Ottawa was always satisfied with tho goods, tho ullieers on tho
spot and the sou captains were continually pointing out tholr defects,
nnd trying In vain how to handle
thom. The captain of tho Lady Laurier besought tho department not to
send out any moro of tho lurge and
costly size, as they woro unsuitable,
but tho Commissioners allege that
tho department "pretended" to misunderstand.   (Pago 151' 5
Dumped on II. C.
From oust and west the agents of
tho department began to represent
tbat they had not room to store tho
buoys as fast as thoy mine, whilo
the department at Ottawa kopt In'
sistii— thut thoro should bo ntimor-
ous spare buoys at the stations. Tho
British Columbia agent hoped "no
moro buoys would bo shipped to tho
coast until we aro In a position to
placo thom." Novortholoss moro were
sent, as, to quoto tho Royal Commission report, "the department is
evidently determined to mako tho B.
C. agency tho dumping ground for
all the buoys. Wilson can wheedle
tbem into buying, whether they aro
wanted or not." (Pago 168.)
Eager to Servo the Company.
Meanwhile somo buoys woro going
adrift, somo wore out of ordor, and
some wero lying at the depot. At
ono time tho Victoria agent hod six
of Wilson's gas beacons and four of

ln anothor three months orders were
given to ship 10 mora nt $5,000

colt and remained there, apparently,
for a year. Wilson thon had an ordor front Brazil for one of that typo
nnd had nono ready. Tha department klndlj traded oil this one for

"It would almost look," say the
Commissioners, "as if the 1. M. S.
Company wore regarded by the department as a branch of the Department of Marino, and a favored
ono at that."
The officials had recommended Wilson's apparatus to the British and
United States governments as. highly satisfactory ut tho snmu time thut

How Not To Do It.
Thoro is a long account of proceedings respecting Morin shoal, Tho
Shipping Federation uskud for a
lightship, but an acetylene buoy,
with boll and whistle attachment,
was bought from T. L. Wilson and
placed on the spo' As tho matter
was urgent, Mr. .tilson wns to have
the buoy ready in thirty dnys. It
was delivered in four months. From
October Oth to Novombor SOtly tho
Wilson buoy was on tho shoaL Tho
local superintendent of buoys h.id reported lt unsuitnblo beforo it was
purchased. Thoro wei-o many complaints afterward, and aftor six
weeks' use tho depnl'tmont decidod to
replace it with a lightship.
A similar story is told of the
handling nnd repairs of the Anticostl
lightship, which cost soo.iioo in
threo yoars, and was in hospital
most of tho time. Tho Commissioners say that this is a conspicuous
caso of "how not to do it."
Reason for Tho Cry.
Our old friend, Merwin, doos not
ligure by name extensively in this
report, but It is shown that Chiol
Engineer Anderson has strenuously
protested against throwing out efficient lighthouse equipment and replacing it with costly imported apparatus recommended by the department. Tho engineer plaiulv suggests
that the cry against tbo Canadian
lighthouses has beon raised by makers of lanterns "simply so that they
could supply thoir own mire expensive styio of manufacture." The
particular order against which he
protested was for nbout $20,000
worth of lanterns for half a dozen
lighthouses. It should bo recalled
that Mr. Morwin's firms havo boon
paid fhlly $1,000,000 by tlio Marine
Department for buoys, lights and
other equipment.
ticipato In the international polar
congress to bo held next mouth in
Brussels. The object ofthe congress
Is.stated to bo to unite the nations
In planning nnd currying out some
practical scheme to roach tho North
Polo. It Is rcgurded as likely that
the mooting will result In tho designation 'of a commission .to further
tho doslre, and Mr. Bridgoman Is understood to bo bound by no restriction liy his participating in the con-
gross but such results jus aro attained will undoubtedly bo submitted to
tho governments participating, for

Marian Grey, who is known in private life as Avo Goodonough, manager of the Searchlight Club of Elgin,

Most of the agents havo confined

Northwest Division Mr. Winston
Churchill won a big victory at the
general elections. If Jt |s a cabinet minister cannot hold his own
there, the ministry which ho adorns
must bo in a bad way. In tho gen-
oral oiection Mr. Churchill's success
was largely due to his free trade
Policy, although the Chinese
lubor bug! won him many votes. He
has often been dubbed "The quick
change artist of modern contemporary life" but he is sticking to the
frco trade plank in his platfurm,
evidently believing it is a good hob-
bylhorse on which to center to the
winning point.
The Unionist candidate Mr. Johnson-Hicks, declares in fuvtvr of Mr,
iiulfours policy of liscal reform,
which now seems tho accepted policy
of the Unionist party. Mr. Church-
hill oilers a bold and doliuito challenge, declaring against protection
in every shape and form, feeling confident that tho constitutuoncy which
gave the the signal for the free
trade triumph in 100U will not now,

He thought (hat possibly ex-Mayor
Coburn would bs able to enlighten
them on tbe point.
Aid. Matheson moved that the com
muuication be laid over for' a'week
ln order' to allow Mayor Nicholson
to see Mr. Cpburn and to give the
City Clerk time to write a Mr. Harvey on the subject.
(The motion carried.
Accounts totalling 816.75 were presented and referred to the Finance
Committee to be paid if found; correct. -
The Street Committee reported
that there wus plenty ol sand in the
sand pit provided it wus taken from
the sido noxt the railway and they
saw no reason why . Mr. Thornley
should not have the use of it on the
condition that the city was paid 25
cents for every load taken out of it.
Mayor Nicholson stated that he
also had visited tho placo and he
thought that no more sand should
bo takon away from in front of Mr-
Russell's house. Thero had beon a
lot of sand taken away and the city
had got nothing for it. -Unless thoy
wore careful, it woubJJ^oko dollars
to repair the diimago that would be
done to the street.
On motion Mr. Thornley was grant
ed permission to get sand from tho
sum) pit on the condition that ho
paid 25 cents a load and did not
go nny nonrer to the south side of
the streot than 40 foet.
Messrs. Parfltt Bros., tho contractors for thc new Post Ofllco buildings
wore grunted permission to put up a
temporary olllce on the north side
of the Esplanade, and given tho use
of a part of the street provided they
loft a clear twenty Ave teet of roadway.
Tho Council then went into commit
tee of the wholo, with Aid. McKinnell ln the chair, on the new Electric Light By-law.
The by-law was ordered to lie taken clause by clause. On tho first
article authorising the borrowing of
825,000, Aid. Haworth questioned
whether this figure would be suffi-
cient.
Mn*/oj* Nicholson said he thought
the-suni would be ample and he preferred to be a few dollars short rather than impose an unnecessarily
high levy on tho poople.
The cluuso carried.
Clause 7 was amended to rend
5.55 mills on the, instead of six,
this being the rato it is proposed to
levy for interest and sinking fund.
' The remaining clauses wcre adopted as read.
Mayor Nicholson again took his
chair, and the by-law, as amended,
was adopted as a whole. The bylaw was then ordered to be road a
third time.
On the motion of Aid. Matheson,
seconded by Aid. Campbell, It was
agreed that the by-law be submitted
to the ratepayers on Wednesday,
May Oth, that Mr. Stewart be the
returning ollicer, and that the polling be held in the City Hall.

gulshed political career.
Hia command of the Liberal parliamentary party, with al! its diverse elements, was a uiarvel In
Personal prowess. He did'not rule
| by any adroit diplomacy, but almost wholly by the confidence that-
all the different sections had in the
essential sincerity of his attitude. I..
has boen truthfully remarked that
fow public men have ever earned a
place so near to tho hearts of their!
political supporters as Sir Henry,
whoso absolute honesty of purpose
there was entire confidence.
Sir Henry Campbell-Bannernian was
the second son of the late Sir Jam-'
Campbell, of Stracathro, Forfarshire, and was born in 1830. He
was educated at the University ot
Glasgow, aod at Trinity Colloge,
Cambridge. In 1872 he assumed thd
additional surname of Bannerman,
under the will of his uncle, Mr. Henry Bannerman. Sir Henry owed his
wealth to the great drapery firm of
W. Campbell & Co., ot Glasgow, of which his father was the
founder.
He entered parliament in 186S,
nnd continued to represent the Sterling district until his death. He
served In turn as financial secretary
tho war department, secretary of
the admiralty, chief secretary for
Ireland, and twice secretary of state
for war. He was elected Liberal
loader In February, 1899, after the
death of Gladstone During the
South African war His sentiments
were of a decidedly pro-Boer character, with the result that he split
his party on the question.
Sir Henry bore the'brunt ;of the
fight for several years in the Houso
of Commons. He bore, too, tho
obllquy that sprang trom public anger over his pro-Boer attitudo, but
'he was never seriously accused of
disloyalty, and bis tinge of pro-
Bocrism was long ago forgiven by
the public.
While Sir Henry was universally
respected, he was never regarded as
great political leader, l„ the
sense that Gladstone and Harcourt
were leaders. Personally popular,
and of a most genial disposition, he
nover showed the forco necessary to"
dominate a great party. He stood
well enough with the radicals, without having aroused -their enthusiasm, (md ),0 escaped giving serious
offense to moderate and Imperial
Liberals, though the latter never
took kindly to his leadership. But
of hla personal popularity, Integrity
and sincerity there never was any
doubt.
Sir Henry was always a man who
Gladstone regarded with favor. Is)
1884-5 he was given the important
position of chief secretary for Ireland, and in Gladstone's third cabinet, ho was entrusted with the portfolio ot secretary of state for war.
This same position was given him
in tho Gladstone ministry of 1892.
By no means a strong debater and
by no means able as an orator, Sir
Henry was yet a powerful factor In
the House of Commons. Beside Mr.
Gladstone, whom ha succeeded In the
liberal leadership, ' sir Henry did
not compare either as an orator, debater or wrltor. Yet in hla way
he waa probably even more attractive than Gladstone. While he was
never worshipped as a hero, he waa
always prized aa a personal friend.
