Aldermen Campbell,
thoson and Brown.
A communication wa* read from
the Union ot Munlclipal Firechlefs of
B.C., inviting .tto^Council to attend
the convention to bo held in New
Westminster toword the end of next
lonth. The importance of learning
the best methods ol lighting flre nnd
minimising the damage occasioned by
the flames was enlarged upon and
the Council wus urged to attend. On
motion the letter wus ordered filed,
and City Clork Stewart instructed
to reply that as many as. possible
of the Aldermen would attend.
An Invitation to tho Mayor and
Councillors to attend the reception
given the victorious lacrosse boys
was too late and City Clerk Stewart was instructed to express the regret of the Council that the invitation arrived too late for them to
avail themselves of it.
Accounts totalling ¥834,15 were
presented and referred to the Finance Committee to be paid lt tound
correct.
Aid. Brown aald complaints had
been made to him about the hours
that the bowling alleys wore kept
open in town. .Young boys were
staying there till all hours ot the
night, some ot them black as they
came from work. There wa* gambling going on, too, and it was time
a stop wae put to lt.
Mayor Nicholson said they hud
gone to work and closed certain places, and they should complete their
work and make theso alloys the som
as the saloons. Tho latter pay heavy licenses and they should not dose
thom down and leave the others
open.
Aid. Brown.—Boys should not be
allowed to stay In theso places, if
they went Into a hotol the saloon-
keeper would turn .thom out.
Mayor Nicholson said a fow w'ooks
ago, people in tho city had given
them credit for what they had dono
in oonhectloh with the hotels and tor
a time at least theso pluces woro vor
quietly conducted. On Sunday, ho
was told, thoy were as bad as evor
again. Thero woro somo of tho hotel-keepers who thought thoro wail
no law to closo their places on bun-
day. Thoso mon might bo fooled
ono of theso days. He did not want
to be too hard ori thom; but in enforcing their by-law ho expected thoy
would get tho full support of tho
town. They wore trying as far as
thoy could, to do their best for tlio
City. Ho roally believed that boys
should not be allowed out so lato ut
at nights.
It was up to tho Aldei-mon to bring
In a by-law to close theso places
down. There hnd beon complaints
about the noise of the alleys and he
thought thoy should bo closed at 'certain hours. Thore was, he believed, a
by-lnw in Victoria which thoy could
perhaps avail theinsolvos of, although thoy need not bo so strict ns
they wore in Victoria.
Aid. Brown remarked thnt lt would
bo advisable to get n cony und seo
what tliey could do.
Mayor Nicholson said he would try
to get one. He Intended going
to Victoria; but If anything camo ln
the way to stop him,' thoir clerk
could writo for one.
Mayor Nicholson reported that ho
had Been Mr. Little about tho proposod site for the electric right power-house. Tho site they had spoken
of below thc V',. _' N. depot wus uot
available Tho Wellington Colliery
Company proposed putting In somo
now sidings nnd they might require
all tho ground betweon thoir present
road-bed and the eclgo of the bluff.
As regarded tho septic tnnk, Mr.
Dunsmuir hnd marked out a plnco uu
tho map, which they, could use fur
that purpose. Pructically ho had
glvon tho Council permission to put
It In anywhere on tho wnter front.
Mayor Nicholson snld that hn had
Informed Mr. Littio that they bad
decidod to put tho tank on tho- 1—-
planado somewhere below Oould's, ns
that was the most favorable pluco.
They would have to look up some
other place for a site for tho power-
house.
Aid. Brown: Will the tank not bo
a nuisance ?
-Aid. -Matheson explained that lt
would be porfectly sealed up aud
that there would lie no stench.
Dr. Fagan romarked his worship,
also looked over theso plans. The
only objection there was' to the tnnk
being there was that the distance
from the wator wan so groat thut
little blggor dtschnrgo pipe would
havo to he used. Mr. Mohun would
now soon be ready to put In his es-
timate of tho cost. Then they could
bring in a by-law and 11 by thnt
time they had not disposed of tho
electric light debentures they would
perhaps be able to . get rid of the
wholo lot easier.
The question of tho sidowalk on
First Avenue which was laid over
from last week was taken up again.
y.Ald. Brown snld hs hod been think-
• ■ <ng about the question all week und
in his opinion It would bo foolishness to lower the sidowalk ovor three
leet.   01 courso they had the  pwplo
JJUP
and ho., would have t».,ui
othor week's grace.
Aid. Matheson said he wished to
express his agreement with Aid.
Brown. Tho grudo thoy hud there
now should ho established as the official grade for thnt section ot tho
Avenue. He thought it would lie
good idea for tho Mayor und sumo
of the Alclermen to interview the pea
plo u iio would bo affected by tho pro
posed eluinge.
Aid. Campbell uskod for information regarding the lumber whbh . ihu

Football Club Put Up Great' Pro
gramme on Monday Kvonm,;.
—     tej
The only thing thnt was Jacking I o
mnko tho "Smoker" given by thoj
Football Club on Monday evening' u
complete success was a botter atiiin-
clunce. The untertnimnent wus lar
und away the best ot the kind that
hus ovor been seen in 'Ludysmith <. -id
It is ceruiin that the next will be
more 'liberally, patronised, -ot only
was there a ' really excellent programme, vocal and athletic, - but
thore were pipes and tobacco for the
smokers, beautiful ham sandwiches
for the hungry, and some iced lemonade for the thirsty. The churge 'or
the whole business was only 80 cents
and nothing cheaper has ever boen often— at the opera houso. Tho boys
will clear expenses and are cont—it
with this if, as is almost certain, it
is paving tho way forthe next enter,
tninment.
Those who were there could certain
ly not complain of tho entertainment
ttflorded them. The musical numbers in themselves were excellent and
there were sevoral good athletic
turns. The brothers Morrison put
up an exhibition of wrestling such as
bus seldom, it over, been seen In Li
dysmith. -Pete is u pust master at
the gume, and in spite of Arthur's
greater bulk and strength, kept him
going. Ho had some new break-a-
ways, and hus tho too hold a la
(latch. The last bout of the two
brothers was particularly fast and
groutly nppreclated. Iko Portrey and
Meredith also mixed lt in willing
stylo and tho boxing exhibition betweon Brown nnd Wynne furnishod
tho amusement of tho night. Bouncer's antics wero irresistible; but un-
hnpplly, un accident in the second
round caused Wynne to retire and the
bout was never ended. Barclay and
McPhersun furnished tho real athletic business. Their bout was ot the
whirlwind order and with as much
hard swinging thc boxers from1 time
to timo took a hard punch. However
it was all in good feeling anil? indeed, it ht— to be suid that everything passed off. without a hitch und
that all present/were more than satisfied. Tho committee on bohalf of
tho club desire to express their sincere thanks to all those who contributed to thc evening's programme.

A practic* game will be played on

satisfactory feature of last Sunday's

was the result. The play was even
enough and everybody was content
with the way the players shaped, If
only the scores had tallied. Howavj

OTTAWA, Aug. 9.—Another sample of cost* and estlmatea ia afforded ln the hietbry of the Hltlshoro
Bridge ln Prince Edward Island.
-M* itructur* waa flrat estimated to
coat about 1500,000. When it waa
fairly undertaken by th* Hallway Department, the estimate had been'
r*i*ed to 1700,000. By th* time
tto bridge waa completed the - bill*
had run up to 11,900,000. Contractor Haney, who I* not, only a bridge
builder but a valuable supporter ol

The dose * connection 'between
dreding and politics has been frV
quent.ly pointed out by Mr. Dennett
ahd others., Close relatives ol Members of Parliament flnd a great faa-t
emotion in dredging contract*. The
chief man in one dredging company
is the lawyer leader of the Ontario
Opposition. Another has a local le-
gislatdr 'ano" his brother and son-in-
law of a Dominion Membor as the
chief -owners:, ' A third seems to be
controlled by an ex-Member of Parliament. The fourth has the son,of
the member for Ottawa as the active
manager.   oj .,  .   ...       -i.. a .
A St. John Dredging Deal.
The Company last mentioned has
found a small fortune In St. John,
N.B., harbor. The Dominion Dredging Company was not required to
compete for this profitable St. John
contract. A local contractor tendered in 1905 and did much excavation at 05 cents per yard. He did
not find it profitable, and when the
work was offered next year he raised
his price to 90 cents. There was no
other tender, and tbe contract wa*
awarded to him at the higher rate,
which was largo enough to recoup
any previous losses and leave a substantial profit.	
An Easy Oontract
The Government then decided that
second dredge should be put ! on
It did not recognize the previous
contractor by giving him an ippjor-
tunity to get another' dredge and
continuing under his "existing contract. Nor was there a call for new
tenders. Instead the Department
gave Mr. Stewart's Dominion '. rouging Company the contract td' go I ln
and dredge at 90 cent** yard. There

< 'Th* ' 'PtiMIc Account* Committee
asked the captain to explain why he
had to pay 16 cents a pound .'or his
spring chicken and othor high prices
for similar supplies absolutely necessary for proper towing. Here la his
testimony :
I will explain how the price  was

bqy chicken,, Invariably they charge
you Just about double what the chickens Wworth." '■"'"'
HI* further explanation was: "We
have the patronage list, but sometimes when they get on the patronage list' they think you have to buy
from -torn hnd tip goes the price."
The Royal Commission'made ths

If there had heen anything big at
Issue several reasons might have
been given for the' Joss of the janu,
the opening game of what all tbe
club's supporters expect will oe a
great and successful season, on Sunday afternoon. Howevor, it wns
only a friendly game and serious criticism and analysisNrould he out of
place.
Still there are a few things which
may be said in lieu of a report of
the match. The flrst Is that it u
the flrst time the red and white colors of the team havo gono down in
the duet of defeat on tho Sports
ground. 'And then again, It was the
opening game and not everybody is
yet. freo from superstition. At any
rate the prospects would have looked brighter and mnny of tho club's
supporters would have felt happier
had the decision been reversed.
For these kind of people I have anothor consideration to put forward.
I am referring to tho superstitious
people. The points at Issue botweon
Nanaimo and the home eloven ure
generally shared in turn. For example Inst season wo wore bonton in
Nanaimo and wo wero victorious horo
It was Nanaimo's turn whon we went
to Victoria, only it took two gamos
for tho charm to work. Naturally
wo defeated tho. champions at Vancouver and Sunday's match again
rounded off the series. Tho next
game will come to us or the i-harm
has boen broken. If that lie no wo
shall hnve the teams straggling Into
a victory or n defeat in any qld
shape by any old road which might,
or might not. add to the interest
created by the meetings of tho two
teams.
As for the game on Sunday, thore
Is no necessity to say very much
There was little botween tho two elevens, and play wns fairly ovonly, divided. Rogers had perhaps the most
shots to stop, but there were none
of them difficult, although Adam
once nnd Graham once shot from
close rouge. Tho play considering
the condition of the players, tho sul
try heat, and the dusty state of the
field was fairly fost and interesting,
The rally In front of Rogers' charge
a lew minutes after tho gamo commenced stirred up thc wholo crowd
ns woll it might for nothing more
prolonged or prettier has been seen
on the ground. ...      I.
Neither eleven was up to strength.
Hurren and Crulckshanks wero hot
with the champions and eithor of
them, would be missed from a forward line. The homo team can also
lie strengthened, and just how the
real battle botween the two elevens
wll!/;i it is hard to say. All lho
last season will be repeated, and the
Indications are that the struggles of
a goal on either side will almost "always decide the issue.
The champions had no new men
out except Rogers, who kept goul
for the Thistles last .season. Certainly he is a good man, and it is
doubtful If his equal Is to be found
in the provinco. But then Hartley-
is not back yet and we are content
to leuce the defenco of our citadel
to him.' All the other men we havo

A DBOWlNQ ACCI'PBNT   SUNDAY
Nanaimo, August 17. -
One of tho saddest drowning accidents ot Nanaimo's history,'and the
first which has taken place this year,
occurred yesterday morning about
half past eleven. The victim to tho
cruel rapacity of the sea was Samuel Alnslee, who for the past year
has been residing with his family on
Milton street, this city.
Yesterday morning Mr. Alnslee, In
?ompnny with Mr. Hindmarsh, Oeo-
Atklnson and Mr. Andrew Jemson,
went down to the' beach below No.
1 shaft for a swim. As far as can
be gathered from the few bathers
who were enjoying their morning dip
at the beach, the deceased, although
an Indifferent swimmer, had swam
out to a small boat which was anchored a short distance Irom the
beach.
He then started on his return to
the beach against the tide which Just
at tbat place runs very heavily.
When about half way across. Hind-
marsh and Geo. Atkinson passed him
on their way out to the boat, When
nearing the boat thoy heard a slight
cough ln their rear, but thinking nothing of it they were not aware any'
thing had happened until they reached the boat. Then, on their looking
back, tho waters appeared to have
swallowed their companion. Without
further delay, they plunged in and
struck out for the spot where they
conjectured he had sunk. Several Indians, who happoned to be noar by,
and were brought to the scene by the
cry of the bathers, at once put out
to the spot in their canoes and aftsr
a little searching, they found the
body of the deceased in about seven
feet of water. Taking the lifeless
body at once to shore, immediate efforts were made at resuscitation and.
in answer to a message Dr. O'Brien
hurried to the scene. But all to no
avail. Despite the superhuman efforts which they exerted for several
hours, life was pronounced extinct,
and all human means proved futile
to restore life into what a few hours
previous had been a strong energetic
young man.
The ambulance was then called to
the scene and the body taken to
Hubert's undertaking parlors.
As Mrs. Aidslec for the post
week* has been in a state of very
delicate health, the news was broken
to her In the most gentle and guarded manner possible. But the shock
was too much for her and she now
lies in a stato of complete collapse
at the residence, Milton St., where
kind friends are doing all possible to
uphold her In this hour of gloom
and anguish. The deceased was 83
years of ago and was a native of
Cumberland, England. He leaves
two young children, aged flve and
seven. As stated before they have
been but a short time in the city,
and are strangers in a strange land.
The sympathy of the city and coun
try at large will be extended lo the
stricken family in their sad bereave
ment.

is not over-burdened with Weight but
he worries along and ls always on
his man. Harley. was played outside lelt and scored the only goal ul
the match. Certainly II there Is a
hall-back for his place he ia good nn
outside loft as Nanaimo have yet
placed.
Of the homo boys Sandy in goal,
was only beaten once, _nd even then
niter he had stopped the ball once.
At right -back Christian waa a great
success nnd he roally played a sound
hard game. He is a strong kick, a
robust tackier, and does not lose his
head in an emergency, Main was a
little on the slow side but in the
first half ho played his wing effectively. He Is a flno kick, places wllh
Judgment, snd hardly ever sends a
ball out of play. Jimmy Strang also
made a creditable debut. He has
not got used to the bounce uf the
ground yet and Bevoral times ran
under tho ball. At short rai.ge,
however, he is a grand tackier end
he never strays from his lositlon.
On Sunday he kicked out quits i, lot
too; but anothor crame or two s-vuld
cure him of that.
There remains only Warburton i ho
on the day's play easily made good.
He is very tricky, takes a pass
good and always in turn passes to
advantage. Of- the old boys Wynne
waa aeon to greatest advantage. Ho
played a great game and so did
Graham. Jimmy and tbe others did
not unduly exert themselves and both
he and Joe Sanderson, missed
opportunities of scoring..
For the rest the game was played
out In real friendly spirit. Scott
Harley got In the way; of Paddy
Hewitt once _ needed a minute or so
to come round. Shorty Graham also
collided with Adam and got rather
badly winded, but he was soon on
his feet again and playod out the
gams. Hugh Fulton's rofereoing
plessed both Bides and nothing occurred to mar tho game. Of course,
the home club's supporters would rather have had victory with their own
colors, but there was really little to

from Blummlngton and Dec—ra, Porta, Pekin and Pontine are parading
the streets' and It is feared other
riots will occur.
Wrs. Hal—n was assaulted by a
negro while the woman slept in her
houss on a populous street awaiting
the return of her husband. The man
broke into, the house, dragged her
intothe rear .-ard and assaulted bet.
Before noon Oeorge Richardson, a
young, negro, was arrested by the
sheriff, charged with tha crime.   The
ctim partially idontllied the prisoner. Crowds quickly gathered about

NEW LOCAL    CLUB   IS FORMED
NANAIMO AUG., 15
A new club was formed In tho city
last night. The club is tho result of
the meeting called to bo held in Dr.
Mason's offices of tho motor launch
mon. Thoro was a very large gathering ol tho different launch men present when the meotliig. opened.
There was little discussion on the
matter of forming a club that would
embraco the motor launch men, all
being in favor of such an organization. The sentiment of the mooting
even went further than that and It
was decided to form a club that
would be calculated to develop iu the
best wn- matters connected with all
classoB of boating in the city, and
for' thut reason the name of the club
will be "The Nanaimo Boat Olub."
Membership is open to anyone who
possesses a boat, be it a launch.skiff
or canoe. With such a wide scope as
this it is figured that there will be a
very largo membership and that ac-
quatlc sport, Nnnuimo's favorite pastime in. the summer, will boom as a
consequence, and .that with such a
strong organization looking alter
the interests of the sport generally,
much more enjoyment will be gathered from It.
Only temporary officers were elected last night until details are further completed and all have a chance
to associate thomseivos with the new
club when a general meeting will be
called and permanent officers'elected.
The officers pro torn elected last
night are:
f resident—Capt. Yates.
Secy.-Treas.—Harry Mclndoo.
Committee oi .Mahagument — Dr.
Mason, H, Mclndoo, Jof! Planta.
It was decided that tho club will
get up some races for Labor Day, cooperating with the Athletic Club In.
this matter. The present Intention
Ib to have launch races and likely
sculling and other races. It is Just
possible, also, that a grand march
of all launches, sailing boats, skiffs,
canoes, etc will be held on the harbor with perhaps an illuminated parade tn the evening. Such affairs as
this aro only a few of the things
that the new club have up their
sleeve,' and shows what a pleasant
time is to be expected from affiliation with this latest Nanaimo organisation.
For the launch races there will be
a handicap, based oh the results of
the former race, which excited | so
much interest, and if possible It will
be arranged so that the race will
circle the harbor ln sight of all spectators. In the recent race a number
ot launches broke down and to get
at:a fair estimate of their abilities
so that they can be placed In the Labor Day race, a preliminary raco will
be held for them before they are
placed.
Altogether the new club bids fair
to be a sourco of much genuine enjoyment to not only its members but
the general public.
Here's wishing it success.

THE NEWS   FROM THE CAPITOL
OTTAWA, Aug. 8. tt Mr. Fielding
delivered hls last budget speech on
the seventeenth day of March, Just
two weeks before the close ol the
fiscal year. He should have known
pretty well how business was coming out, but his estimate was wide.
The revenue for' the year was less
than he estimated; and- the expenditure a good deal more. On March
Slst the debt had' Increased during
the year botween $14,000,000 and
815,000,000. Mr: Fielding had estimated tho increuse at only 81!*,000,-
000.
Tho road Is under contract and Its
length is pretty woll ascertained. It
is now declared to be from the Quo-
Bridge terminal to Moncton
45(>i miles, and this wlll be a little
Increased. The saving as compared
with tho Intercolonial is 20 miles
instead of 100 or 120 miles. Moreover, the new road is to havo t
"pusher" grade, that is to say, n
grade which requires an extra engine to push tho train up. Everybody knows that the Intercolonial
could be shortened by much more
than 22 miles by cutting across
few minor curves. So that there is
really no shortening of distance at
all.
More Than Double the Cost,
Now as to the cost. Mr. Fioldlng
said he had obtained careful statements from the Government 'Engineer making it 125,000 per mile. ' In
July of this year tho presont Minis
ter of Railways brought down tho
statement of tho present estimated
coM of this part of the road by divisions. Here it is:
For    39 miles   ... 682,573 per mile
For 50 miles     41,095 per mile
For 64, miles     45,841 per mile
For 61 miles     51,180 per milo
For 58 miles     65,771 per milo
For 1 mile     65,871 per mile
For 81 miles     88,570 per mile
For 82 miles  110,178 per mile
For the remaining 149 miles no estimate is given, but it Is said to be
as heavy as any section except that
last mentioned.
It will be seen that the average
cost will be at lease {60,000 per
mile, or between $28,000,000 and
124,000,000 for the whole; Instead
of only $25,000 per mile, and only
$10,000,000 altogether.
Mr. Schroiber and the Ministers.
Mr. Fielding now tries to throw
the responsibility of his bad estimate on Mr. Schroiber. The engineer Is not in a position to explain,
but Mr. Schrelber has not troubled
himself to discredit'the arrangement
which the Ministers havo made or desire to make with the Grand Trunk
Pacific people. It was shown lut
year that when tho Company put in
its first claim of expenditure to be
covered by guarantee bonds, there
was an item ot $162,000 of "preliminary expenses" which the engineer
objected, but tho bill was certified
wu askod to certify as a charge lor
actual construction. The accountant
Just the some, after Mr, Schroiber
had consulted the Minister of Jus-
tics. Finally it wna brought to the
attention of Mr. Courtney, the Deputy Minister of Finance, who set to
work examining tho Items.- Thereupon tho Company suddonly withdrew the claim to $56,000 and asked for the remaining $106,000. The
accountant objected to these, which
s largely payments to lawyers
and othor promoters. Finally Mr.
Schroiber took back his recommendation and the bill was not allowed.
An Easy Certificate.
The accountant who hold up the
claim was transferred to Moncton,
and it will ho remembered that the
items ol the $50,000 first withdrawn could nover afterwards be
discovered. Tho depurtinont had given up tho statement of claim without keeping a copy of It. It was
sent back to the compano, whose
proper officer \. iioii summoned to
give ovldonco - before the committee,
sailed for Europo, His assistant
testified that the paper had been destroyed, and tho govornmont majority
In the w •'•>'» Account- Committee,
sustained afterwards by tho majority, in the House, voted down all attempts to further Investigate theso
secret expenditures. Mr. Schroiber
would have had the wholo bill paid
without inquiry, ns his Minister
doubtless desired.

Mr. Frank. Myers arrived in town
today to assist Uuy iu training ior
bis match with Bruco Ashman. Mr.
Myers is open to wrestle or box any
one in the vicinity hisweight, and
will challenge the winner ol tbs two,
local men wbo box here Labor Day. j
In regard to the report going the
rounds   that Gay has never beaten
Johnnie Uilliter, Gay has this    to ]
soy:   "I have beaten Billeter      and
have money to say it was the same;
Billeter who came here with DoBree'
a* his manager and wrestled   Sandy!
Swanson.   I am not looking tor any
noterlty or wishing to belittle  any- •
one, as I consider that Billiter is as'
fast as they make them at his weight
but I beat him at 13S and am wll-
ling to bet 1 can do so again at any
time or place, and ior any amount
he desires."
In relerence to the'Oay-BUleter.
match, the following from the Strea-
tor Free Press sets at rest any doubt
as to Gay having met Billeter, ths'
Toledo wrestler:
John) Billeter, champion 180-pound
wrestler ot the world, was last night
deloatod by Thomas Gay in two
straight fulls, it requiring but 8,
minutes for the first fall and 17} for
the second.
The Cleveland boy who on April
10th won the 180-pound. champion-
ship- by defeating Guy, proved an
easy proposition for the local wrestler In this match. At no time was
Gay In danger, and displayed hla superiority by at all times keeping Billiter on the defensive.
The first fall was secured by a
hommerlock and crotch hold. The
second -was secured by a half nelson
and cissors hold about the body.
Both were clear cut and not a
word wus uttered In opposition' to
the decjsion of the referee.
Gay was in the finest condition.
Sevoral months' hard training had
placed him in a condition which was
far bettor than at the time of ' the
first match with the Cleveland champion. He looked much better and In
every way showed that he was in the
finest condition:
It is a rccbgnizod fact that Gay ls
possessed of nfur superior knowledge
of the wrestling game from a scientific point ol view, but upon the
occasion of tho first match wns unablo to cope with Billeter's strength.
Gay having been forced, to train to
come within the woight limit.
Tho ngroomi-nt for tho mntch last
night included catch weights, Billeter going ln at 124 pounds, . whilo
Gay weighed 18.-1. This placed the
Streatoi* boy In a position to successfully copo with his opponent in
weight, and this, together with his
science, proved a barrier in tho path
ot. victory for the champion.

BUSH FIRES.
There hits been a g'*i" d8"1 of speculation in the Provincial press   a*
to the actual damage caused by the
bush tires.    Thero hus not,   as far as
wo have observed, been any attempt
to lay the responsibility for tho Ores
and nothing    bas been suggested in
the way of prevention,    fioth these
issues of the   main    question havo
Men brought   vary vividly home to
us this lost week.    It would, be Idle
to deny that at one time the town
wa* in   considerable   duuger, and it
Is   generally    agreed that a strong
breeze would havo meant liery annihilation.      Wo   may well thank our
good fortune that we escaped as    -
did, but whom have wo to, thank for
the cause of it all ?
T,o thi* question there is a pretty
unanimous answer. Most persons
have no hesitation in saying that
the fire* have been caused by sparks
from th* locomotive*. 01 course,
this assertion might be incapable ol
proof In a court ol law; but there
are one or two thing* to bs said
about which there is no manner of
- The first is that llres   have
         fta bs started by    ihe
■parks omitted from the smoke
•tack* of th* locomotives. The second is that the location of many of
the lire* is proof presumptive that
they were started by this cause. The
third is that this source of lire wa*
so generally admitted that there is
a govarnment regulation that the
■moke stacks of all locomotives
should be covered by a hood. Are
tha smoke stack* of the locomotives
running on the two local line* so
coveiod? They are not, and hero we
hav* a direct violation ot the law.
There is, or it ls said that there is,
some interference    with tho draught
tion that some of our mot* active
politicians would reply to him. No.
one, however, haa done ao, and
consider that misleading, delusive
statements by a public man should
not go unchallenged, I fear tog many
of u* ar* apt to believe evil of our
neighbors, and such of ua as know
the truth should remedy unfounded
impressions.
1   have   much respsct   for    Mr.
Smith und the poaition he has made j
for himself in the body politic, therefore I Would expect him to deal with j
public questions fairly and squarely.
lie should by thi* time know   that
there    are two sides to every question.   Be waa reported in tha   Victoria Times as saying that ths Con-
wrvativ*    government   gave thirty-
two    million acre* oi land In tha
Northwest to friends,, but doe* not
toll what those acres were given tor.
Waa such a vital omission intended
to deceive?  The other aids which he
should have told the electors, which |
hs knows perfectly well to be true-
la that the Conservative government
granted twenty-five million acres and
twenty-live million dollars to the C.

All this is perhaps only as it
ought to be, und, of course, it is all
fjuitu beside tho murk, it is far too
early yet to get a line upon tho
form of the two teams that is at ail
ileionduble and least of all can the
play on Sunday bo taken as any criterion of the real play of the two
—ovens, 'lbe gome, It is true, was
interesting, enough and never at any
lime slow; but, all the same, the
men were iu no sort of condition and
there wus littio or no snap and ginger iu tho play. More than that
tho one toam was without a goalkeeper and the other was without
Hurren and Hopper and these lattor
are both good men. ,
Yet there aro followers and judges
of tho game in each town who are
confident that tholr respective club
can play all round the other. Tome
' must confess this is clotted non-
use. Of courso, we never quite
agreed In the two towns last seaso-n
as to the comparative merits of thu
two clubs. Personally I could never
soo ani thing more than - toss-up
between them aud at least 1 havo
the Jesuits of the games played to
tack me up. Five matches .wereplayed and there were two wins eaoh und
a draw and if anyone wants uny botter proof of a fair stand-off thun
that then ho Ib deaf to facts and figure*.

and who opened the tender and took
out Mr. Burrow'* cheque*. But thesel
three member* kept silent while Mr.
Oilier provided the Houae with ml*-

The True Story.
In January, 1908, application was
made for the sale of 500 square
| mile* of timber north of Prince Albert and around Churchill river, td
b* (elected in 60 bloeke of 10 miles
from tb* vaat area of 7,000 *quare
mile*. Whoever bought It would have
control of th* rewrv* supply of lumber for th* whol* Prince Albert district. Th* Government had never
explored that timber. Few possible
bidders wer* acquainted with It and
very few had capital to handle so
l*rg* a proposition, But th* Department at once advertised th* Mm-
! It*, with only *!x week*' notice from
th* tlm* th* ,*4v*rtl»emer.t we* is-
jsued at Ottawa till the tenders were
to be opened there.   On* Inwrtlon of
    advert!——ia—t   In   a
Winnipeg paper and one at Prince
Albert was th* Information given.
Whan than appeared only 6 week*'
time wa* toft and on* would be required for tb* tender to reach Ottawa. Four week* to explore 7,000
*gu*r* mile* ol country, pick out
SO ten-mil* block* of timber and get
back to Prlnc* AH_rt with th* estimate*.
Vain Protests.
There ww *_-Un_-t nod' alarm

of Trad* passed resolution* and aent
thsm to Ottawa protesting «gain*t
th* aai* of all thl* timbsr at once,

pax asked that lis month* be given
for i_(ui__-on, and that If the'!
whole of thla timber mu*t b* *old.
it ahould be aold in at leant 10 limit* instead of OM or two. The Mayor of Prlnc* Albert alao fired a

Mr. Cowan wanted thl* lttol- ii

understand tbat b* would hav* no

en.    Hs made them.
A* It Appeared.

tb* highest, and the limit ww awarded to him. For the oth*r H&p
mile*, John MeBain ww the. only
Kidder at   ,11,000, and a* got   the
lielow the   Surtaoe.
But an examination bi tb* papers
and an inquiry.la tha Public Account* showed tbe matter in a new
light, Mr. Cowan d'd not, write, hi*
own tender. He did not fix the um-
ount. He did not furnish ths check.
Tha tender ww written by. A, W,
Frwar, tha Ottawa politician, who
I* now ta* Government candidate in
that city, and who ha* been mixed
up with the Imperial Pulp Company
Mr. Burrow* ln a, doaen Western
deal*, and hw carried through several of hi* own. Mr. Frwar was before the committee sad testified that
he had written the Cowan tender under Instruction* from Mr, Burrow»r
and not,from Mr. Cowan, that Mr.
Burrow* bad furnished the cheque*,
aad ww (bs only man be. knew In
Ul* matter.
Mr. Fraaar also stated that he
wrote the McCain tender, and that
MeBain had no Interest In lt, but
merely lent bis nam* for th* purpose
Mr. Fraaar bad another man ln
Montreal named Nolan, who also lentl
hi* name tb tb. Fraser aad to Mr.
Burrow*' Imperial Pulp Company,

It only remained then for Mr. Burnt-  aad   Mr. Fraser to get th*lr

about It,   they aaatgned their bit*-1

Other Operations ot Mr. Fraser
It ba* been mentlbned that Mr: A;
W. Fraaar   ha* had a good   deal to
| tio with timber limits. He put ln
two bida for the Moos* Lake limit,
which document* form part of the
original papers that the Government
for reasons afterward apparent, held
back until supply ww relused and
mlnlater* wen forced tb aurrender.
In this case Mr. Fraaar used hi* own
| name tor e bid and borrowed the
name ot Mr. Nolan, oi Montreal, for
| the higher and later bid, which took
th* limit for Mr. Burrow*' Imperial
Pulp Company.    Mr. Burrow*    Iur-
niahed tha cheques, and the    .	
transaction was ^o irregular that it
led to strong suggestion of collu
sio*. There were two other limits
which Mr. Burrows'. Imperial Pulp
Company desired to obtain, and
which wore so distant that it
