and thure wore present Aldermen Koberts, Haworth, Brown and Camp-

tho city would bo put to no inconvenience. The letter was ordered Hied.
Me, Stewart, , returning officer   on
tho Sewor By-Law    ballot, reported
that the by-law carried by 84 votes
against 8.
■ Tho roport was ordered filed.
Accounts totalling over 51,000,
were roforred to tho Finance Comi-
mittee to be paid if found correct.
The new Sewer Bylaw then came
up for recommendation and on motion was formally affirmed.
Thc matter of a city, auditor was
brought up and it was decided to
advertise for tenders, the same as
last time, applications to ho n by
next Monday night.
Mr. John Stewart was appointed
to act as Returning Ollicer at thc
noxt municipal elections.
Aid. Haworth asked if something
could not be dono to prevent tho
loitering on tho sidewalk. Women
had to get off the sidewalk and
trample through the mud of ■ tho
streets to get past. Thc loiterers
hadn't sense enough to move.
Asked by Aid. Matheson whnt
course ho would suggest to remedy
tho evil, Aid. Haworth replied thot
they could authorise the policemen
and nightwatehmnn to order the loiterers off the sidewalk", and. if the
order was refused, then police court
proceedings could bo taken,
Ou tho motion of Aid. Brown, seconded by Aid. Haworth, it wns agreed thnt tho city police force shpuld
order the loiterers to clear off' tho
sidewalk and that, if tho order was
not complied with,, the offenders
should be served with a summons.
A h\ Haworth suggested that somo
thing should bo done ns speedily ns
possible with the sower dehentures.
Thoy ought to ho advertised, right
awny hnd an effort made to dispose
:of them..
It was decided,, on tho motion of
Aid. Campbell to advertise both the
Flcctric, Light nnd Sower debentures
in tho Monetnry Times for two
sues.
The Council then adjourned.

hns roud it. Uo does not ovon particularize where the loitering takes
place.
Nov:,1* tho Standard has already
described some of tho loitering that
has come within ils observation as
an intolerable nuisance, unil* took the
ground that it was more the result
of heedlessness nnd thoughtlessness
on the part .of youthful offenders
than anything else. Thero is no excuse for tho uso of bad am obscene
language on the streets, j^ir for a
rowdy disturbance, after hod time.
Apart from this the Standard fails
to seo where loitering is so much of
u nuisance, and refuses tn accept unless upon strong proof, the ussertiun
of Aid. Haworth, that tho loiterers
have not sense enough to.move to
let a Woman pnss. Tlio loiterers
themselves have some rights and business Is hardly thut brisk that they
caa be said to check or interrupt it.
Thc city is so fixed that a well-lit
part of: the sidewalk is about thc
only public, place a group of, men
with a hobby can meet to talk it
over. Thore is no hnll, no rending
rooms, no place of umusement— nothing 1: it saloons ' and pool rooms
and these, also hnve come under the
heel of the present Council.
Tnke tho city oji a Momluy night.
As a result of the legislation of Aid.
Campbell and his colleagues, thero
isn't a place a young follow, nor nn
old one, either, can go to. It is
dark at supper time, and evon if ho
goes to church that only takes up
part of tho night. Pool rooms hnvo
beon closed, saloons nailed up, rind
now loitering is under the bnn. Yet
not ono of the cpmpluinnnts has taken part, in the agitation for nn
nthlctie hnll or litcrnry cluh. The

Three drums of cable arrived on
.jtho transfer barge consigned to Mr.
Henderson, superintendent' of telegraphs, Nunaimo. Each drum contains 1| inilo of cable which is Intended to connect tho telephone service of Gnbrlola Islgnd with Nnnalmo. It Is a government consignment, and lias causod no little trouble nnd difficulty hore.
Hio cable Is almost an Inch thick,
and ought certainly to stand any
strain It may meot on its ocean lied.
A mile and a quarter naturally
makes a big honvy drum, and tho
threo of cbom oach stnnd over six
foot high, nnd oach weighs about six
tons. Thoro is no crane on tlio

Finally the matter was tukon up
by Uio Pnrfitt Bros., who nro putlog up the now post ofllco nnd customs homo, The drums wcrcdlnnp-

Tho voting on tho Sewer By-law on
Saturday, wus inordinately slow und
slack.' There wore hardly a dozen
votes cast beforo twelve o'clock and
I the first mnn to cast bis vote was
| more than surprised thut ho had
that distinction; it was then after
10 o'clock and it wus evident then
that tho polling was guiug to be very
sluuk.
A poor vote was to some extent
expected, lt was generally conceded that there wns no opposition to
the measure and every ratepayer w-as
satisjiod that it would carry. For
this reason a large number of persons abstain,-tl from voting, und
when nil was over less than .10(1
votes had been registered, When evory excuse and ullownnce is mude,
there is no denying that this. Is a
wretchedly poor vote.
There' were less than n dozen mon
in the .room when Mr. Stewart be-
gnn to count thc votos. lt soon do-
voloped thnt there was no opposi
tion to the proposnl and the llnnl
figures were:

Ludysmith vs. Victoria—April 10.
Nanaimo vs. Ladysmith— April 17.
This    schedule, it should be said,
did riot.meet with the approval    of
tho Ladysmith   representatives.      lt
will'be be.noticed that Nanaimo, on
March 20, are two games ahead   of
Ladysinith, nml that the very     best
game    of the leuguo is set for decision nt     Nunaiino.     II the competition runs the same this year ns     it
did lust yenr, this will lie a   tremendous    drawing card, a   fact     which
(he representatives of both cities fully realized.       Howovor, C. Graham
argued   ;that last senson Lnd.vsunilh
hnd the attraction of the season, and
certainly March  14  was a   inoniora-
blo day and drew a   rocord crowd. It
was only   fair,     he contended, thnt
Nanaimo should have its turn in the
season about to open.,    Eno argued
that last yoar hnd nothing tn     do
with this.   year, nnd when the schedulo wus'drgwn    up no ono dreamed
that the mntch 'Would prove such an
attraction.     Ho was willing to toss
for    the dates.      On a   vote Iwing
talvon there were four for nhd   four
airninBt,  and  President  Duncan gave
liis casting vote in favor of tho sche-
lulo ns it stnilds.
Mr. O'lCcki, the captain of tho V c-
toria West tenm, then raised tho
question bf the definition of n senior
player, ns adopted at the last meeting of flic Association. Ho snid
that his tonm hnd played together
sinco thoy were boys, and had twice
won the Intermediate championship.
They would, ho snid, like to try for
it n third time; but throo of hls
players had been disqualified from
playing in the socond division because thoy had participated in l\ioi
lie Coast Loague .games. These play
ers, he said, had all received aSsur
unces from Victoria football authorities that participation in the P.C.
L. gamos would not debar them from
competing in thc second division of
(he Islund Leuguo. Vot, if tlie decision urrived at in the meeting in
Nunuimo wus adhered to, these play-
era would bo unable to play in the
Second Division of tlio Islund League. It was extremely doubtful if
they would bo ablo to catch n place
in the Victoria United team, and
thus they would be thrown out af
tho game altogether. This would
certainly be a great hardship, and,
under nil the circumstances, ho considered ho was justiliod in asking tlio
League to reconsider its previous decision and to reinstate    these plny-
tho audience and claims tho prize
within five minutes' or the drawing.
The drawing will be entirely fair.

by the Halifax Salvage Association,
in connection with tlie wrecked steamer Mount Temple. It was customary in salvage cusos to pay anybody' giving information, and assistance, and hence these payments, - as
Johnson had sent witness a message
regarding the position ol the steamer and had accommodated members
of the association by taking them
to tho wreck.

Johnson $100 for information on
and advice regarding the sinking of
ths Donaldson liner Hestia, then in

SATURDAY'S VOTE.
The vote on the new Sewer By-law
on Saturday was protty much what
we expected, and, in one respect at
least, it bore out some of our fears.
Thero wns practically no opposition
to the proposal, only eight votes being cost against it; but tho voto,
after all, was surprisingly small.
Perhaps some other factors than
those of mere apnthy and indifference to vital civic questions had
something to do with this. The feeling for a sewer system was so general that everybody felt satisfied thc
measure would cnrry. Consoqlucntly
a" great number of taxpayers nevor
visited tho polling station, and only
about a quarter of those entitled to
vote exercised their franchise, Of
course, it is much to be regretted
thnt the vote wns so much out of
proportion to tho Importance of the
question. It should hnve been remembered thnt even if the by-law
wore npproved. the debentures' had
still to be sold. Saturday's vote
will certainly not holp the snlo of the
city honds. ' People who will not
help themselves cannot expert to he
helped, nlthouirh they enn generally
be trusted to grumble enough.
However, the by-lnw wns cnrrleo.
Thnt is tho mnin point. It is now
the duty of the Council to prepare
the debenturea as rapidly as possible
and get them on the market. Tt will
bo much better to get an . mr for
S75.000 than for S25.000, md another favorable circumstance .ii that
the money market appears to be opening out a little. The money should
be secured ns early nh possible. Of
course, thore is iio chanco of a stnrt

installation during thc life of the
present Council- but all thnt can be
done ought to bo done. Next winter at lonst should find tho town not
only boasting its own lighting sys

LORDS VS. COMMONS.
The British House of Peers has

the House of Commons. Thc noble
ond Reverend Lords havc thrown out
tho Licensing Bill, a measuro which
was carefully selected by tho Idbor-
al Government to stand as n test
between the two Houses. Whnt the
issue of tho fight may bo timo alone
will show. The bnttle has been coming for years, ana, hnd Gladstone's
strength held out, would havc been
precipitated long before this. Now
the supremo hour has arrived which
will either smash tho power of the
Peers, or givo them a firmer and
moro potent stnndlng In the British
Constitution. So far as wo can
judgo at this distance and with the
littio information wo have before us,
the Lords havo chosen an inopportune hour and an unfavorable cose
on which to test their strength. It
is not tho fire? measure of tho Liberal Government with which thev
have Interfered, nnd this time they
havo prnctically defied the Government to take up the case. Their action on tho Ilrst ocensinn, which concerned the Education Bill, was alleged to havo been advlsod by Balfour, the Conservative loader. On

the government alleges, havo usurped
the constitutional function of the

Singers go on Strike, Board of Wardens Resigns and Pastor Threatens to Quit If His Action
is not Upheld.
SAN DIBOO, Nov. a7.-Deprlyed
of vestments and accused of giggling,
girl members of the All-Saints Episcopal Church choir, are out on strike
this week, the board of vestrymen
has resigned and the rector, Rev. J
A. RJchey, has promised to vacate
the parish if hla stand ts not upheld
by his flock.
Ia a statement published in the
official organ of the church, the Bev,
Mr. Rickey mokes ths following explanation to his parishioners:
"The principal which tbe rector
has taken out of service waa the
choir girls in ths men's vestments.
This waa done for three particular
reasons, any o! which would seem to
him sufficient.
"First, thero was no room for decent vesting and it was impossible to
prevent conversation,
"Second, there waa a frivolous
element; understand the girls are all
very nice girls, which element made
reverence during service apparently
very difficult to obtain.
"Thirdly, the most weighty reason,
however, there Is absolutely no precedent in the history of the whole
church which is a very big and wide
history, for ths practice whereby
girls assume the ecclesiastical garments worn, by priests and male
choirlstere.
The music, on the other hand,
has not suffered by this change. If
wrong principles are. introduced thay
must sooner or, later be corrected betore growth op rlghtHnes can be
tabllshed."

It is estimated that Mr. Carnegie's

HOME TEAM'S VICTORY.
Those who witnessed the game on
Sunday afternoon saw an hour and
a half of good hard football. There
was not much of the slow, slipshod
play which usually characterises
friendly games. Rather the reverse
wtm. the case. The boys from Wes-
tham Island started off at a rare
clip, and the game was liberally Interspersed with incident and excitement. It was-well on in-the game
before the home boys wore down tho
impetuous rushing of the Islanders,
and took the upper hand. For ton
or fifteen minutos tho home boys
were constantly on the defensive and
it was apparent that thoy would
have to get in and play to win.
This, of course, suited the spectators,, and when, in the first ton
minutes, Westhum Island scored as
tho result i of ta pretty aggressive
movement, tho crowd began to yell
exhortations at the boys to get in
and play. But the visitors aro a
test, hardy lot, and wero nono too
oasily driven back. Their gome with
the Celtics, tho day boforo had boen
postponed, so that thoy woro In the
bost condition and they certainly
showed that, whoro there are points
at stako, they are a formidable combination. Tho victory of tho home
boys was all tho more appreciated
on this account, n and both players
and spectators feel all the happier
for the result.
The visiting team, it should be
said, were all Westham Island boys,
with the exception of the centre half;
McKenzle, who is a Celtic player. He
is certainly a good man, and played
a hard game. It should also be
said that their visit was greatly enjoyed. They are good sports all of
them, played a c)con and plucky
gome, and they all enjoyed tholr trip
As It happened, In spite of the bad
weather of the morning, the Club
broke even on the deal bo that there
is general satisfaction. 'Also the club
will feel itself Justified in making
other fixtures with some of the Mainland combinations.
Tho game was a few minutes late
in starting, but the, wait had not
chilled the ardour of tho visitors.
They broke away with a great rush
and for ten minutes they wcro all
over the home players. Arthur and
Christian, were going, for all they
were worth. Again and again the
rushes woro driven back or turned
aside; but there were several exciting rallies In front of goal: Not to
be denied, the Westham Island boys
came again, and from a fine pass
the ball was banged Into the net.
The home boys woke up a little after this reverse, but still failed to
find their stride. Thoy managed to
get up around the goal, but tailed
to scorot e-.u a free kiick against
Strang ,™s cleverly cleared by 'Dougan.- McDowell got away on the
fight, but was -met by Palmer, who
hurt his knee. The ball was bounced and there waa a lively mix-up
before the visiting backs succeeded in
clearing. Dougan was called upon at
the other end and then came another rush. Dougan got the ball, but
was charged, and the ball travelled
into the not. Referee Watterton disallowed the point, howovor, and the
game went on.
( Then came the flrst home goal.
Mike' O'Connell put out to Provins,
who centred to Adam. Jimmy got
round the back with the bnll, and
McDowell ran in and banged, the
ball into tho not. The point
greeted with a wild burst of cheering and the homo boys began to
take up tlie gamo. Jimmy and Mike
got going, the former-putting to
Provins. Harry had a.flno opening,
and shot -hard enough; but the sticks
were -out of range. A few minutes
later, Harry again drove ih, hitting
Palmer. Mike was on the goalkeeper like a flash, but the ball-was
closred. Half time came immediately after..
Tho visitors were flrst away again,
but wero soon pulled up; Thoy hud
Clearly lost thoir stjng, and it seems
that the hard ground had plavorl havoc with their feet. The home boys
had all tho best of this half, and
ployed good football. Palmer cleared from a freo kick and then Provins was pulled up for oll-slde. McDowell forced a corner, and put in a
pretty shot which Miko O'Connoll
headed over the- bar. Main JUst
missed with a great drive and! then
Strang passed prettily to Adam,
Jimmy Just got his hoad to tho
ball, and Provins, racing in, scored
with a great shot.'
Play was .pretty evon for a time,
After this tho ball travelling from
end to end. The homo halves began
a little shooting exerciso; but both
Main and Strang seemed too high.
McDowell also just skimmed the bar
with a fast drive, and then forced a
corner. The ball was beautifully
placed, and Mike O'Connell, waiting
on the edge of the scrimmage, socur-
pa and drove into the not tor tho
third goal.
This ended the scoring, although
for Iddysmlth, Provins came pretty
ney getting another, and Trim, tho
rushing visiting centre, charged the
ball out of Dougan's hands and had
hard lines In not scoring. It waa a
reilly.good game, and all who saw
,lt wcro perfectly satisfied with the
exhibition. John Watterton relented,
kept tho boys strictly to the rules,
and showed an expert knowledge of
the game. The teams lined up
follows:

TOO BUSY TO FIGHT.
Los Angeles, Nov. 80— Battling
Nelson has made a favorable reply
to tho offer of Freddie Welsh for a
45-round contest for the lightweight
championship and a $5,000 side
bet, but declined the oiler for the
present. - His reply, which Baron
Long, of tbe JetWcs Athletic Club,
received yesterday, is as follows;
"Thanks for consideration. Busy
writing book, building twenty houses, etc. Time taken to latter part
of January. Welsh mors eligible
than McFariand. Consider Welsh
later.    Regards to all."
This is taken to mean that Nelson
considers Welsh as having a better

battle than McFariand.
A VANCOUVER LAMENT.
In a rathor sad strain tho Sporting Editor of tho Vancouver World
bemoans the fact that most of their
best forwards on their soccor team
had beon 'filched by tho clubs in Nanaimo, Ladysmith and New Westminster, and conscttiuently the class
of their club toums had sadly depreciated this season.
In tho article which appears bolo.
he seems j to revel in tho disco- : i
late fact that Vancouver, the city
of 00,000 inhabitants, tho terminus
of the Cahadlan Paciflc, the sporting
Mocca of tho Wrist could not sustain
a forward lino on a par with that
of tho defence, while such a littio
coal hole as Nanaimo, such a stumpy hamlet as I/adysmlth and such n
sleepy burg as Now Wostminstor,
maintained u forward lino of stars.
These stars had been wooed from
Vancouver shores and now the sporting editor of tho World stands liko
Dido "on tho wild sea banks to waft
her loves to come agaMn to Carthage."
"About this part of tho season

of this with that of Inst season!
The general opinion is thnt the football being played ln tho loaguo game!
Is somewhat inferior to that displayed before last Christmas. Thoro Is a
good deal of foundation for this belief and the depreciation in valuo is
duo to the poverty of smart forwards. The places of Hurren, Mit-
choll and'Hooper havo not been filled, and some of tho forwards who
remain and worn stars lost yoar,

Nov,    28.—Tom
Longboat ln his relay race at     the
hard Olympla Rink this evening vanquish-
jed his four opponents by two    laps.
I The courso was sixteen laps to the
mile. Largo crowds of spectators
woro present to see the famous Indian run. For tho flrst mile W.
Hughes, of this city, was tho opponent, and at the finish of tho first
•inilo the Indian led by one and a
half laps. Strumihall, of Niagara
Falls, N.Y., lost one lap on tho second mile. The Indian was taking
things very easy, nnd his long gliding strldo seemed to have no exertion, ho appeared Bimply to glide
over the ground. Altmnn, of Buffalo, took up the third mile, and at
the half distance, two and a half
miles, the Indian led by three laps.
At three and a half miles Driscoll,
the champion long distance runner of
the 74th Regiment A.C, of Buffalo,
tackled tho Indian nnd decronsod his
lead to two laps. At the four-mile
post Hughes again tackled the Indian and decreased his lead to a lap
and a half, but the Indian put on a
spurt ond easily gained the lost
ground and added half a lap more.
The last half mile Strumball tried
tho Indian a second time, decreasing his lead to two laps, by which
the Indian won the race.
He ran in good form, keeping up a
steady, killing pace for his opponents, using his head throughout the
race. Time, 25 minutes and 5 seconds. Longboat covered the first
two miles in 9 minutes and 10 seconds.
fo'^ards—McDowell; Oraham, Ad-J The new forwards revealed since tho
beginning of September are not  equal to the caliber required.
Some players of real ability may
stroll into town boforo tho season is
comploted, and their presence will bo
welcomed. In the Coast Loaguo
games a good forward Kino can be
picked from all the ctuhs, but It
would bo surprising if, from all the
clubs engaged, flve clover forwards
could not lie discovered.
Vancouver will probably continue
to be milked of tholr bost men

delegates to the* international institute of agriculture in Italy, remarked lhat It was the aspiration of tho
delegates' to do all ln their powerto

success of the great work which they
had set themselves.
After Fisher's speech King Victor
is reported to have declared the conception of the great idea was nothing, but the difficulty was to carry
it out In their harvest. A struggle
occurred on the language to be used.
Francophites naturally urged that lt
should be French, but tho majority,
lod by Mr. Travereno, of Australia,
ultimately defeated them.
It is generally admitted that the
British Empire sent most important
delegates in the persons of Sir E.
