St. Petersburg, August 28—Notwithstanding tho frowns of tho government officials, the protests of tho
reactionary bureaucratic element and
tho prevalence of a cholera  epidemic
ti the Tula provinco, whero Count
Loo Tolstoi lives, all Russians be-
'onging to the educated and progressive class are joined today in celebrating tho eightieth ulrthdn- of tho
:reat "Apostle of Liberty," It Is
true, some of tho feature of the proposed program woro reluctantly uban
donod, but tho greater part of tho
program was curried out with every
ovidenco of genuine enthusiasm for
tho most popular character in Russia. The proposed pilgrimage of Tolstoi's most ardent admirers to his
residence in Tula had to bo
abandoned as it wus considered
unsafe to permit -thousands to congregate in a district whero soveral
hundred of persons have died from
Cholera during tho past weok. The
pilgrims had intended to march to
Tula on foot nnd life tho "simple
lifo" on tho way. 'Upon reaching Tu
la tho pilgrims proposod to form a
big camp noar Count Tolstoi's homo
to exemplify tho Utopian theories of
sincerity and close"communion with
nature, as advanced by tho great
"Torch Bearer."
The central committee ln charge of
tlio international celebration included
noarly ovory writer, brtist and public
man of note in Russio and it hud no
difficulty in enlisting the support of
many distinguished men in nearly overy European country, tho United
States and somo of tho colonics. Tho
commltteo has started sovoral impor-
portant movements coincident with
tho celebration and all of them pro-
miso to be successful. One of tho
plans is to raise onough money to
purchase tho copyright of Tolstoi's
books, so that cheap oditions may bo
published with a view of popularizing the idons und theories of Russia's
great old man. Another movement
is dircctod toward tho establishment
of a Tolstoi institute and Museum
in St. rotorsburg.
Lettors and telegrams of congratu-
Tho fact that quite recently Tolsto
hns boon "persona non grata" to
tho Russian government, even more
thun beforo, muy have had a stimulating influence upon the sympathies
of that large class of educated Russians belonging to tho opposition.
Tolstoi represents, more than any
othor man in Russia, the progressive
and radical element. Nearly all his
life he has bcon on the opposition
side, defying and combatting the evil
influences surrounding the throne,
tlie bureaucratic clan and tho reactionary faction of tho nobility. His
sympathies havo over been with the
people nnd his aim has ever been to
lead them to freedom and hnppinoss.
Yot, his radicalism was not of a violent nature and nevor did he advo-
cuto tho uso of forco or violence.
Tho Nihilists of Russia, the anarchistic element, found neither support
nor sympathy with Tolstoi.
Tolstoi has had a remarkable career. He was born of noble and
wealthy parents at .Yusnaya Polyanu
on August 28, 1828. His parents
died while ho was a child and ho
was loft in charge of an aunt. lie
received the usual education of
Russian noble, first at homo aud afterward, In 1843-4 at tho University of Kazan, whero ho entered tho
faculty of Eastern languages and
literature. In 1844 he took up the
study of law-and was granted his
degree and admitted to practice
1348. In 1851 he accompanied his
brother to tho Caucasus aud entered
tho army. It was during his residence at the Caucasus that lie wrote
his earliest novels, ln 1858 ho joined tho Russian army of the Danube
nnd fought against tho Turks, Ho
lived abroad for about two yoars after the campaign and then returned
to Russia. In 1802 ho married Miss
Sophio ftchrs in Moscow, who has
had the most remarkable influence
upon his lifo, his religious and sociological views und has, as many
believe, saved him from financial
ruin and from becoming a montal
wreck. His first income from his estate and from the copyright of his
books would enable him to live in

The great jiolitieul jjow-wow on the
Green at Nanaimo on Saturday has
apparently left tho public records o
Smith nnd Hawthjrnthwaito mors
clouded than ever, rio other result
.was, of course, possible and tho
whole business was a piece of sheer
humbug. What exactly -was Smith's
object in contriving such a moeUmr
is best known to himself, but it iB
certain thut in the result he has lost
rather than gained by it. It is, of
course, a legitimate weapon of attack to twit an opponent with inconsistency, and there is no doubt
Hawthornthwnito has on -.any
occasion strayed from the narrow
path of principle. The point is, how-
over, that both .politicians poss as
fator mon working for a single eye
to tho glory of the poor toiler. In
this resi eet thore is no comparison
between tho public records of tho
two men. It Is indeed, a dlflicult
matter to find out whoro Smith  has
month for the wttr_ fjn0 jS not to bo compared
privilege of working a longer day at with the Nanaimo vanguard, and ytt
the face. I thero is little lacking in tho mater
|ial. Neither have the halves shown'
!up to such advantago as was expected.    It all shows the necessity ' for
In this vory case, selected by him-1
self, we have n fair test of the gen
uineness of Smith's claim to be a
friend and a leader of labor. The
greatest wonder of it all is that
evor bo should Jiavs managed to fool
ao many mon. for .buch a length of
time. That ho has got to the . extreme lonsth of his political tether
there is now no longer any room for
doubt. After all honesty is the beat
policy in politics as in everything
else, nnd Smith's record only exom-
pliflod tho progress of a political
rake. He has sown in dishonesty
and treachery and he will surely reap
in shame and humiliation.
but nothing amounting to much.
From all of which it would appear
that Jimmy wns fairly wound up,
and. as n result of it ull, it is gratifying to noto that tho Vancouver
press for onco adopt on amicable
and conciliatory tone. Let us all
hope that a botter fooling will prevail between tho two usslicintions.
Hore is one of the monuentous Issues discussed in the big light on the
Ureen on Saturday, it seen— that
Smith claimed to have had something to do with a big screen. Do
not be misled. Ho had not been in
actuul contact with the screen, or
put any coal over it.. Still he con
'turn to Hawthornthwaite and tall
iiiiu "hia coal does not go through
a big screen because he does not dig
uny. There is a force point and
pungency in the argument which is
peculiar to Sinith alone. What would
be childish, irrelevant, and caddish
in Hawthornthwaite is tho divine essence of wit and wisdom in Smith.
Of course, the stalwart Jim rose to
the bait, and told the wily Ralph he
was another. "No more havo you,"
he roared, "in this country, nor if
certain reports be true, hava you
over dug in the mines." This shrewd
hitting, all so Inexplicably and inextricably bound up in their public records, naturally provoked interruption from tho audience. Hore at last
was an argument which the friends
of either man could follow and they
were overjoyed to have the opportunity of showing it.
earnest    work    and regular practice
und training.
Thero is anothor point which is
touched upon in anothor articlo
which ought to havo appeared in thc
last issue of the Standurd.but which
wna crowded out'. This is that the
club is suffering from tho indiller-
orenee of its supporters ami its mom,
bors. The fortunes of the club and
of football on tho Coast in general,
aro Just at that stago which require
the best endeavors of all its friends.
No ono with tho slightest interest
in the welfare of the club will drop
out at this stago of the gamo totally rouson whatsoever. We aro all
anxious to secure a winning team,
to seo the club launched upon. the
waters of prosperity, and none of us
should hesitate to subordinate personal considerations to tholr common weal.
As for tho members thero Is no excuse for them. It is timo tho City
Loague was started, and scarcely a
man has come forward with .his two
dollars membership fee. Tho club
cannot afford to provide free sport
for all who may bo cheap enough to
wish it. It takes money to run the
Club, to provide balls, keep the field
in shape and to look aftorithe hundred and ono things that crop up.
Two dollars is not an outrageous
fee, and It has to be oloarly understood that unless it is paid thero
will bo no kicking and no playing.
There were men who last souson
played in matches and kicked in
practice who never paid a cont into
tho coffers of tho club, It will not
be permitted this season. Before
any ono Is allowed to play In a
match ho roust bo a bona fide member of the Club, and stops will >-o

Now Westminster on Monday evon-
ing at tho annual meeting of tho 11.
C. F. A. Jimmy was president last
year of that vory shadowy association, and, of course, presided at the
mooting. A speech was in ordor,
and Jimmy rose to tho height of tho
occasion and scored with both feet.

Tho following account of the P. 0.
F. A. meeting held in Now Wostminstor uu Monday evening is taken
from the News-Advertiser:
The first yuestion token up was the
protest of the Thistlo Football Club
regarding thc:- playing of Mainland
players by Nanaimo last season. After some discussion, owing to the
vnguonoss of rulo ton in the constitution, the protest was filed and ihe
?10 forfeit will be refunded to the
Thistles. ;
Tho various   clubs which  won tho
different   championships
will be   notified that     i
fact thnt there is no money on hand
no medals will be awarded.
Tho   constitution     was    discussed

cussion took place

President   Adam    maintained that
tho   Mainland     and   Island . should
play their games to syjt themselves.
Will Ellis was in    favor of the cup
system. He   recognised the fact that
a team which lost ono game was out
of the running, but thought the plan
better than the     league system. He
said that   thc   point    to be decided
was if a man plays in tho Vancouver
District   League,,   is he playing for
tho B. C. Cup at the samo time. Cur

Reforees Committee-Messrs. Hepburn. Ellis, Adam and Duncan. This
committee will meot and appoint

It was decided that tho proceeds
of tho final games should be devoted to purchasing medals and travi
oiling expenses. Tho Vancouvor District, Loaguo games will bo played

Saturday Smith ridiculed Hawthorn-

tho old trade-unionist on Vuncouvor
Islund who eot this mensuro lung,
before, and If I am correctly informed tho mino workeis now have thoir
clothcr no longer siuco his amendment than bsforc,"

Smith regularly hands out for reason and argument a fow passing remark's may not l» amiss. It may bs

they must have neglected to place

noticed that, whereas the testimony
of the weather-beaten ono (there is
not much weathor in a mine as a
rule) distinctly manes Ralph a digger. Ralph himself uses a little
more discrimination. Since ths point
is so weighty, and so much turns on
it, we feel constrained to add a little testimony of our own. We cannot si oak ilnnlly .m cither side of
the momentous proposition; but we
can say that for the last twonty-
llvo years, whatever of toll Ralph
hns dono with his i.t-nds, has been
very light, and in that timo never ,

ed strides tho gamo mado in tho favor of tho sport-loving public. Not
only was there moro football played,
but tho piny itsolf was generally of
a higher standard than had hitherto
been seen upon tho Const.
Perhaps tho great improvement in
I tho standard of plaV hod a groat
denl to do with tho increased popularity of tho game, and then to con-
cludo tho season wo had tho competition for tho "People's Shiold." The
officials responsible for the arrangements of the series of .games for that
trophy (of which I was ono! did not
seem to satisfy any of tho clubs concerned nmd least of all the Vancouver City eleven.
Now, however, that all tho fight
ing nnd tumult havo died, I belief e
tho competition will itself bo of Inestimable vnluo to tho game this
soason. The matches stirred up public e.v. .lenient, popularised tho game
anil I believe, gentlemen, that this
year's football will secure that hold
on tho public, favor which Is its
rightful heritage in B. C.
Another factor in football which
will, I behove, go for to securing
and establishing tho gamo on the
Coast this season is the "Pacific
Association Football League."
Wo havo to thank Mr. Will Ellis to
whoso untiring worlt on behalf of
football it Is impossible to give too
much praiso. and Mr. Con. Jonos,
who is always willing to lend bis
support to tho promotion of good
sport—wo hnvo, I say, to thank thoso
gentlemen particularly for tho establishment of tho P.O.A.P. I_iiguo.
Of courso, it had bcon In tlio fir

was being worked up in Vancouver,
wo wero discussing it In Lndysmith.
Now it is established, a kind of inter-city league, with Just an Intern*-
tional flavor, and I firmly believe
thot It wlll still further holp the
gamo along on the coast.
And now, gentlemen, I come to
matters moro nearly touching tho I u
slness of this meeting.
I must first of all oxpross my regret that during tho past season on
element of discord crept In lotwoon
the Island and Mainland Associations. Of courso, somo littio <eal-
ousy Is always Inevitable; but surely nothing to prevent the o-tistoncc
of harmonious relations between two
slncoro and honost bodios of sportsmen. In the past soason wo had
only two games played in tho B. -D.
Championship series and of those
that between Nanaimo and Thlstl™,
was a flalo. Now, this was not ««
It ought to have boon and in my op-
hi on it all sprang from tho strained
relations existing between tho two
associations. A powerful old to
this state of things was and is tho
Incompleteness end inadequacy of
both associations.
As a first stop toward tho realisation of this botter feeling I would
suggest that lho protest which was
lodged against Nannimo by tho This
ties ljo withdrawn. To go on with
the caso now would only reopen old
soros and raise now troublos. Wherefore I would like to see tho protest
withdrawn so thnt wo could begin
tho presont sonson In all harmony
and undor tho vory happlost auspices. I will conclude now and hopo
the now by-laws will moel with nil
thfl requirements. Sincerely yours,

Urltish Marino Board of Trado   Declares Seures uf Wrecks are Plan-

the Insurance.
LONDON, Aug. 24.- Charges that
the scuttling,of ships Ior thoir insurance has become a criminal science i
that scores of lives have been lost
through deliberately planned wrecks,
and that the evil is enormously promoted by the underwriters' willingness tu accept all kinds of risks from
common gamblers on the perils of
the sea, are being probed by tbe
board of trade Investigating the recent loss of the British ship Oxus.
Ship-owners themselves ore under
no suspicion and ure responsible for
tho inquest. Suspicion falls on the
companies and individuals insuring
vessels in which they have no inter
est except their risks. Ample evidence has been introduced to prove
that every vessel unsound from ago,
badly manned or engaged in perilous
service is heavily msurod by "ship
speculators." Most of the speculators say they simply pick out likely
losers. A few admit that they "act
on informution.
A number of ship-owners and cap-
{tains have testified thut they know
of cases where members of ship companies have been offered handsomo
presents if the craft on which thoy
served should meet with destruction.
The underwriters' committee, having refused to discontinue accepting
risks from tho 'speculators," the
ship-owners and masters, who fear
both for their lives and reputation,
are. urging prohibitive legislation.

AUGUSTA, Ga., Aug. 27.—Augusta was yesterday visited by one ul
the worst floods in her history. The
Savannah River began rising rapidly
early 'Tuesday, continuing throughout the day up to a late hour last
night. Water from the river and tho
canal surged down the city streets,
until a depth of from six to eight
feot had been reached in a territory
bounded by 15th Street on the wept
to the extreme ettstern boundary of
the city. So far as is known, three
persons have been drowned, their
identity having not yot been learned
this morning.
News of tho capsizing of boats in
the swift current have boen received,
.but have not boen verified because uf
the utter chaos the city was thrown
into by tbe sudden rise of tho water. Two fires were reported in the
Hooded district.
Lime stored in ware houses coming in contact with the water was
said to have been tho cause of explosions which destroyed the Nixon
wholesale grocery warehouse and the
Nixon and Danforth cotton ware
bouses. This, however, cannot be
Thore is great suffering among
poorer classes of the whites and
negroes who occupied tho houses
nearest the lowlands. Thousands of
persons went to bod Tuesday with
the thought that they would wake
in time to escape tbo flood, but
groatly to thoir surprise they awoke
to find themselves surrounded and
cut oil from escape except by boatn
Boat owners wero quick ro se
their opportunity and at once bogai
to charge exorbitant prices for moving those unfortunate onough to be
caught. Many in attempting to
wado or swim from their homes ur
from places of business in the flooded districts to points of vantage,
lost their footing and only saved
themselves from tho rushing torrent
by catching the tree limbs. It is reported that boatmen" passed a number thus caught and refused to go tn
their assistance unless assured of exorbitant fees. One man was seen in
a troo who was pour'ng forth pitir
ful appeals for assistance aud offering fifty dollars to anyone who
would rescue him. At the Western
Union Relcgraph office when tho water began to ri- , many of the operators left the building for thoir
homos. Five remained but w-ero com
polled to abandon the telegraph olllce for the Chamber of Commerce
building, where wires wero found to
be still intaot. No business was
handled, however. At daybroak this
morning tho oiierators repurted that

inches since -midnight and that if tho

At the Postal Telegraph ofllco tho

sert their olllce when the water
reached the top of tho operating tables, however, the company was able
to inuke enough chaugos and establish through service and run a fow

accurate estimate of the financial
loss resulting from tho flood, but it
is thought the loss will go well over the million mark.
Atlanta, Ga., Aug. 27.— At 4:45
this morning eottuuuntcntion wus had

high water.
Two white persons and one negro
have been repurted drowned, lt was
also reported th t u boat containing a fa_niiy, of husband, wife and
two children was capsized, and all
drowned but this could not be confirmed.
A conservative estimate of the da-Jj I
mago caused liy flood and fire at
this time has been placed at half a
milliomlollars, but it, is believed
that this sum will be greatly exceeded before the flood waters subside.

Young     Turks' movement,    who  is
now in London, has given in an interview   an   interesting account     of
the organization,   fee says the     organization has nothing whatever   to
with the so-called  Young Turks
Constantinople,   but  was   formed
a secret society     in 1904 as    a
last resort to freo Turkey from the
tliralltlom of secret   polico by   whose
machinations thousands of tho best
men in Turkey disappeared,

thousand men have been so disposed
The Sultan has been wrongly
blamed for this condition of affairs,'
he said. "He is surrounded by a
camarilla and can trust nobody, and
had he attempted to reform the go

havo been assassinated."

This information was given to The

that tho Imperial Parliament is a
party to the negotiations.
It is perhaps not generally Known

After months of waiting there ls at '
fength a strong probability that the ■
city will be able to dispose   of   its '
—lectric light debenture stock.    The ,
first idea of the Council was to   ln- '
duco tho Canadian    Pacific  Railway ,'
'Company to take up the bonds. The '
'company is already largely interested in the city and has already gtv-
, en earnestness of its intentions in tho
|land .clearing   which it has   begun.
The Council,    in     view of all this,
thought that, if tho company  \vou:d
tako up the bonds, tho general    result would be to still further strengthen publlc confidence in tho futuro of
the town.
Mayor Nicholson accordingly Interviewed Mr. Marpofe, and a lottor was
also forwarded to Vice-President M*-
Nichol. Howovor, thoro was some
misunderstanding, for no word of
ony kind ever came to tho Council
from Montreal. . ;
Forced to take further action, the
Council tried -irst nn Eastern firm

tho amounts of the bonds Is so
small that never ah -•' advantageous, j
nor ovon n satisfactory, bid was ro-1
celved; f
It had heen    almost    decided   to
leave the matter over until the Sew-1
er by-law had    been    passed, when,!' |
perhaps, the larger sum would   have
been moro ensily negotiated.    As   ai
last resource bofore adopted this action, Mayor Nicholson to6k a   trip ,
to Victoria     and     Vancouver   this |
wook to again interview Mr. Marpole j.
on tho question, and ho confesses to
being very hopeful of the Issue.   Mr.
