The local fight is over, In many
ways It has been a remarkable
light. As a supporter of Frank
Shepherd, the Free Press hus nuiinly
to deal with his candidature in this
afluimulh ol the Naimiwo eonsti-
uu'riOj. I ut it bo stated right here,
and none will dispute it, Frank Shop
herd put ii.p, hi. the results show, ona
of the mnsl, remarkable lights in thc
wltota pru\li.t;e. Only those, who.
have been close to him in this campaign can realize the proposition he
has heen up agiiinst. In Smith and
Hawthornthwaite he had to meot
two of the strongest campaigners in
British Colombia. Search British
Columbia and tho Liberals could
Jiot have found a bettor man to os-
pouso their cause thun Ilulph Smith,
a man who has represented the constituency for many years, a man
who has controlled the patronage for
this time, and anyone acquainted
with the game of politics, knows
what leverage this gives a candidate at an election, a wan who is a
splendid speaker, a great fighter,

prediction- made in Saturday night's
Fret; Press, he made a careful estimate of tho vote and expressed himself as confident uf election. T.o his
committee who had seen his figures,

Ksquimalt. Had Nannimo, his home
town, given him the vote that it
was expected riie would, and as there
wns every reason to expect she would
he would easily have been elected.
Ai Eaimimialt, the military vote
went to Mr. Smith. Mr. Shepherd
did not expect to bring a majority
out of Esquimau-, but he expected a
closer vote, so that, with Nannimo
doing its duty, he fait confident of
n   comfortable majority.
The foregoing is no apology, but a
plain statement of the facts. The
light, however, is now over. To be
a little personal, it bears out tbo
assertion made by the free Press
several times that the fight lay between Frank Shepherd and Ralph
Smith. Mr. Hawthornthwaite could

Lots of Excitement.
As a rule a polling day opens very
quietly; but there" was quite u

of the bay.
"Punch" Simpson, "Slack" Ingham uud Tony Ferraro decidod they
would spend the day sniping for
ducks on the bay. Tbey started* out
bright and early, got out their boat
and pushed off. The boat was nono
too commodious and wus well down
in the water, but the boys took no
notice of that as thoro was not a
ripple on tho bay. They never
thought of the concussion from, the
guns nor took into consideration the
fourth passengor, a dog.
They pulled straight across the
bay from the Dominion wharf nnd
got within hitting distance of a
flock of ducks. They all took aim
and pulled together, and before thoy
knew what had happened tbey wore
evory man in the boy. The concussion of the guns and tho excitement
of the dog were their undoing.
The morning train from Nanaimo
was just in, and the passengers from
it and nil those round about lined
the depot watching the bobbing

There wore other ways, too, in
which Mr. Shepherd was handicapped. There wero attempts mode by

wns known thnt In this ond of the
riding there wns a large vote, not
affiliated with either party, that was
desirous of seeing Smith defeated,

It was after the polling closed nnd
the counting begun that excitement
began to develop. The Standard of-
flco bore the brunt of the whole
thing while it lasted. The editor is
pleased to be able to state that the
damage done is confined only io stationery. Nothing very much was
broken and except for a piece of
ladling wood which a prominent
member of the football executive is
alleged to have carried away nothing of any value was carried away.
For three hours, however, the office
was packed with an eager excited
crowd of men waiting for the district figures ns they dribbled In.
The Nanaimo figures put everybody
but the Socialists completely out of
heart. Smith and his supporters
hnd counted on polling lvtwoen five
and six hundred votes in Nanaimo.
Conservatives \.<fve did not see how
that wns possible, seeing that Hnw-
thornthwnite's following wns so
strong, and having the (insurance
that Shepherd would greatly increase "Woolley's vote at tho last election.
\s a matter of fact, the figures
shower! that Shepherd had gaii ed 10
and that Smith had dropped 12.
Meantime Hawthornthwaite luul increased  Fcnton's vote from 377    to
12, an enormous jump, surely. When
the 'Ladysinith figures were announced, it did not seem thnt either
Smith or Shepherd had an earthly
show to catch up with thc Socialist.
The Liberals had put up their moii-
oii the calculation that Smith
uld poll at least 500 in Xiinaimo.
tt was expected thai below Lndysmith and on the Islands Shephei-d
would more than hold his own with
Smith.
The election was conceded to Haw.
thornthwnite. Even Ilalph's staunch
est supporters, who had covered all
the money that wns offered, either
for Tlawthornfhwaite or Shepherd,
were satisfied thnt they were beaten.
Then came the message that Hawthornthwaite was loading by, 158
with sixteen places to hear from and
that Smith was a certain winner.
Tho Grits, of course, were delighted
with the news, but they had sunk
so fur into tho slough of despond,
thnt their exultation nt first found
only n smothered expression.
Meantime the great hopes which
the Socialists had been nursing tumbled about their ears ns the later
messages come in. Where had been
jubilation there was. now lho bitterness of defeat and their case was
even worse than that of the flrits.
The Inttor touched the depths of
gloom and defeat and awoke to victory after they hnd resigned themselves to everything being lost. But
there was little noise nnd no cheering. The result was at least- accepted by. all parties ns these things
ought to bo.
Now thnt the fight is over and
Smith has been elected, the hot feelings generated during the conflict
may properly bo allowed to drop.
Smith put up a great fight nnd won
a groat victory and it is not for
anyone to begrudge him the honors.

The home team will play its first
dangerous game of the season on
Saturday, when they meet the pick

looked forward to with the greatest
Interest, The reds aud whites are
favorite colors over there, and tho
two gumes nt the end of lust season
in the People's Shield competition
impressed Vancouver spectators with
the strung calibre of the team.
According to Will Hills they are
leaving nothing to chunce over there.
Tho strongest available eleven will

large Held to select from the team
should assuredly be strong enough.
Howevor, Ladysmith will be almost
ut full strength, and a pretty game
should be seen.
The tenm will be picked on Thursday evening; and all the players who
are anxious for a place, will turn
out and train. If possible a Bhort
iractice game will be played Thursday afternoon in order to give Mjc-
Dowall a run and to feel out Arthur Morrison's knee. After that
the selection of the team should be
an easy matter; If the team performs up to form on Saturday other
two points will be notched.

There has been a good deal of
comment on the streets concerning
the style of ballot papers used at the
election. Once a ballot paper has
been handed to a voter it is nobody's business to interfere with it
afterwards. The voter marks his
paper, folds It up ns Ifest suits him,
.and then deposits it in the ballot
|box. On Monday there was- a perforated slip attached to the ballot
jpapers, nnd the gentlemen in charge
ht the boxes waited until the voter
had taken his paper, into the booth
und marked it hohire detaching this
slip. We submit they had no right
to do this, nndi if thoy had, the
system is peculiarly rotten. The ballot is supposed . to be secret, and
while there are many who do not
care who knows how they vote there
nre others who caro a great deal,
and it was to protect this class of
voter that the secret ballot was introduced. As things were managed
on Mondny it was just possible for
scrutineer to tell how a man had
voted while the slip was boing detached from the ballot paper. There
could be no certainty about it and
therein lies the danger; Jor positive
.statements can lie made about a
man's voto on nothing moro substantial than nn impression on n
suspicion. If tho ballot system is to
be used there is common agreement
that it ought to be used properly.

PARIS, Oct. 27.— The social position, of the fair Ducliess He (Jnliuul-
nes, who wus Mistj Theodore Shouts,
of New York, depends entirely upon j
the sex of the child expected to' be j
born to her within a few weeks. i
Should the child be n son, he will1
be heir to the estates and titles of
his father under the ancient Salic -
law and the you: r duchess, his mother will retain her place among tho
titled ariste'rats of France.
If a girl be born tho mother will
be deprived of her title through tho
operation ol the undent Salio law,
and the estatvs will go to tho next
male relative, tho Due de Laynes.
T;he duchess Is still living in tho
beautiful apartment where sho and
her noble husband spent the first
months of their married life, nnd
where the young duko expired In 1.1a
urms of his wlfo. Hero the chiid j
will lie born.
THE RESULT.
At the time of writing the complete returns for the Dominion are
not to hand, nor have all the districts in the local constituency been
heard from; but we know that Smith
is elected and thut the Laurier government will have a strong working
majority. The local contest naturally hus most interest for us, and
we shall deal with it first. So far
us can be ascertained Smith's majority hus suffered a considerable reduction, but still he is returned
pretty hundily. On this score it
may be frankly admitted that lialph
is fully entitled to ull tlie credit of
his victory. He has fought a hard
fight in the courageous manner that
all who knew him best expected him
to do. He has won out, and it is
generally believed locally thut he
will gather tho full fruits of his
great victory. Should the defeat of
Templeman bo confirmed on a recount of tho votes, Ralph will almost certainly b^, given the Cabinet
post of Minister of Inland Revenue
and Mines. British Columbia will
therefore still be represented in tho
Laurier Cabinet and Nanaimo will
boast tho high lionor of Cabinet representation. Smith has fully earned this great position; for, most assuredly no other man in the Dominion could hnve held tho constituency for Liiuriorism.
As to the contest itself there are
two points which call for some comment. Rnlph begun his politicnl career by the votes of tho minora of
Nanuimo. Ho went to Ottawa as
the representative of labor in this
constituency. In liis own district he
hns lost the labor vote. He still retains the Liberal vote, but ho has
completely lost the trust nnd support of tho workers from Northfleld
to Ladysmith. The returns from the
polling stations included in and between theso pluces gave Hawthorn-
thwaite a load of over five hundred
votes. That is to say that In his
own camp, in tho district where he is
best known, Ralph wus snowed under—snowed under liy the votes of
the men to whom ho belongs, and
whence he sprang. In the light of
tho particular aspect the controver
sies of the campaign assume,.', this
fact Is very significant, and materially detracts from tho pleasure our local Liberal friends would nuturiilly
take In Ralph's election.
The second nnd ono which is just
as significant, is thnt Shepherd has
been badly served. His nomination
in tho Opera Houso here was declared unanimous, and ho then stated
that if he wcro loyally supported ho
would carry the constituency. Mr.
Shepherd nt lonst has lived up to
his pledges and more thnn Justified
his nomination assertion. That ho
was not returned at tho head of the
poll Is entirely due to his disloyalty
of his frionds in Nannimo and the
lukewarm ncss of his .supporters down
the line. The Standard was scoffed
and Jeered nt for assorting that the
fight wns between Smith and Shepherd. The figures entirely Justify
our prediction and thero are lots of
Conservatives In the district to-dny
who will be cursing themselves for
fools. Shepherd put up n great
fight nnd even his enemies must admit thnt ho put up a clean fight
Ho is beaten, but he hns gained
mnny friends ns the result of tho
campaign, and, at loast, he has nothing to regret on his own part. Even
those who voted agnlnst him on
Monday nre ready to wish him bettor luck next time, It was his first
campaign nnd thnt he should hnvo
driven such a strong nnd redoubtable opponent ns Smith ns hard    ae

THE BEST KNOWN LIVING AU-
i THOR.
Thoro can be no disputing Tolstoi's rank as the best known most
generally recognized living author.
It will be quite accurate to add that
he is also the best known of the
world's living personalities. There
could, therefore, be nothing more appropriate than tho world celebration
of his attainment of fourscore years.
Who and what is this great Russian as much a feature ot his country's landscape as the Kremlin at
Moscow or the troika of the steppes
whom the world has come to regard as a commonplace of its daily
thought, and whose name is, it
might be said, literally a household
word ?
There are two Tolstois—one, the
writer with an artist's vision and a
creative touch seldom equaled and
perhaps never surpassed; the other
the preacher whose didactic homilies
while without wide influence on the
lives of men, have become vehement-

BLEACHED FLOUR OASES.

Tolstoi, tho literary artist, may
be said to havo died with tho production of "Anna Karenina," in
1875, a work which the groat Russian himself calls poor and unworthy, but which will beyond a doubt
be read long after all his preachment
are forgotten. It must never be
lost sight of, this fact, that Tolsto
himself spills his life in two. His
early career, preceding his religious
crisis in 1878-79, during which hc
wrote all (with the exception, of
"Resurrection") his great creative
works, he now characterizes as un-

The case of Tony or Joo, who ceased to be a neighborhood pioblem
when tho play ground was opened. Is
known to the social worker in almost every city which has a playground. And the almost unanimous
opinion of judges, probation officers,
neighborhood policomon and experienced social observers satisfies us
that tho play ground goes far toward solving the general problem of
juvenile delinquency. Aftor caroful
study of the records of the Chicago
juvenile courts, over a term, of
years, divided by wards, It appears
that a small park neighborhood recreation centre such as thoso of tho
South sldo of Chicago, can be expected to bo coincident with a 28J
IM' cont. decrease of delinquency in
a radius of one-half mile, conditions
of the neighborhood in other respects
remaining stable. To provide a
probation district with adopjuate
play facilities is coincident with a
reduction in delinquency of from 28
ier cent, to 70 per cent., or 44 per
cent as an average. In addition,
over u much larger area the small
narks havo a tendency to decrease
delinquency 17 per cent. It is clear
too, that besides preventing delinquency, the playground greatly Increases the chances that a paroled
hoy will continue on good behavior.

Word has been received in town
that Bob Hailstones was dangerously hurt in the accident in ono of the
Roslyn mines. In addition to being
badly crushed about tho shoulders, a
broken rib entered the lungs and his
oondltlon up to the time of Andy
writing was still very proonrioua.
Still there is a chanco of him pull-
tiou act, '1.398, te which the side
note is, "Power for Board of Trade
to aid -in establishing conciliation
boards," provides as follows:
If it appears to the Board of
Trade that in any district or trade
adequate means do not exist for having disputes submitted to a conciliation board for the district or trade,
they may appoint any person or persons to inquire into the conditions of
the district or trade, and to confer
with the employers and employed,
and, If the hoard think It, with any
local authority or body, as to the
expediency of establishing a conciliation board for the district or trade.
I do not think much has been done
under this section, ln 1906, apart
from local boards formed In the build
ing trades under thoir national
scheme, only five -trade boards camo
into existence. This seems to me to
be a direction In which, I respectfully submit, the energy of tho now
president of tho Board of Trade
might fruitfully be turned.
In conclusion, it has been suggested that a really big trade disputo
will never-bo settled by arbitration.
No doubt there are many questions
on which disputes arise : (o. g., the
employment of non-union labor, the
restriction pf, pieco work, etc.),
where there Is no common agreement
aa to principles, and the nature of a
particular case may put limits to
the applicability of arbitration no a
method of settlement. In fact, undor the terms of settlement of tho
dispute in the boot and shoo trade
In 1895, drawn up at the Board of
Trado, certain classes of questions
(e. g., the employment of particular
Individuals; tho adoption of piece
work, etc.) wero exempted.
It may, however, be pointed out
that a "precisely similar objection Is
urged against international arbitration. Yot that great cause continues to make enormous advances and
so it will bo with Industrial arbitration.—London Lender.

INDUSTRIAL CONCILIATION IN
ENGLAND.
The new scheme of Industrial arbitration, in which Churchill Is Interesting himself, does not In any way
depart from the voluntary and permissive character of the conciliation
act of 1896, The,recent Trade Union Congress seemed to shew that a
feeling in favor of arbitration If
growing among the union*, but Ben
Tillett'e motion in favor of 'compulsory arbitration, on the lines ofthe
New Ksaland conciliation act of
1804, wot rejected by the congress
*by 1,099,000 votes to 648,000. It
I may be Interesting to point .out that
Ithe furthest advance yet made In the
(direction of compulsion ls te be credited to Um boot land shoe trade.
A special feature of the settlement
of their dispute in 189S wu the deposit of each party of £1000 with
j trustees as a financial guarantee for
.the performance of agreements and;
I awards. Muoh may reasonably be
expected from Mr. Churchill's nsw
departure. But, after all, the Ideal
reform Is to establish trade boards
for each of Mny industries which do
not at present posses* them.

HUW GERMANY BUILDS HER
NAVY.
While appropriations ior the Unit-1
ed States navy have bssn mors or
leas buffeted about in committee and
on tbs floors of the senate aod house
of representatives, ws havs had in
recent years a very conspicuous example of the beneficial results accruing Irom a continuous and regular naval ship-building policy, such
as (hat at present under way in the
Uerman Empire. Beginning with
1898, the Germans hav* been acting
on a definite programme worked out
ior several years in advance. It has
bssn known lar ahead of tha time of
beginning construction just how
many vessels of the various classes
were to bs laid down each year, although later acts havs much increased tbe number and sizes. The act
of 1898 contemplated the acquisition
of a navy, including twenty battleships, sight coast defenders, twelve
large and twenty-nine smaller cruisers, besides six destroyers to be laid
down annually,
This total included a number ol
ships already in existence, and work
was prosecuted on the others at the
rato of two or three large .ships each
year. In 1900 a supplementary act
increased the battleships to 88. In
1906 the large cruisers were Increased to twenty, and ths destroyers to
lie laid down each year were raised
from six to twelve. In 1907 the
active life ot all vessels was declared decreased to twenty years, after
which new construction would fill
the place of each vessel so retired,
without such construction being included In the regular list for additions to the navy.—Frank Leslie's.
