Ladysmith, B. C, Sandfly, April 17, 1909.
P. R. Hindmarch
-1 Returns Thanks
A short time ago the Ladysmith
Football Club presented Mr. R. R.
Hindmarch with a handsomely engraved locket in recognition ol fits
services to the club as manager.
Thc initials "R. It. H." wero ir
raised letters on one side and or,
tho reverse side tho words, "Presented to R. R. Hindmarch by tlio Ladysmith Football Olub." The tribute to Mr. Hlndmarch's energy In
looking alter the altairs of tho club
was well deceived, and the following roply has teen received from
that gentleman:
Nanaimo,   April 15,  1909.
W. G. Simpson, secretary ol thq Ladysmith Football Club.  '
Dear Sir:—I have to acknowledge
the receipt ot your letter of the 13th
Inst., and the very beautiful locket
presented to me by the Ladysmith
Football Club as a souvenir of ray
connection with it in the capacity ol
manager. Let me say at once that
I, am both proud and pleased to b*.
bo kindly remembered by tho boyi
with whom for over a year I was sc
intimately associated, lt is always
a pleasure to anyone to know that
his nervices havo been appreciated,
no matter in what form the apprc
ciatlon may find expression. In my
case let me say that I am doltghteu
with the locket I have received and
am more deeply touched still with
tho kindly spirit of remembreni:o in
which it was presented. I beg,that
you will convey to your management
committee, and the boys themselves
my hearty thanks lor their handsome present and true appreciation
of the kindly spirit which prompted
There was no one In Ladysmith
more disappointed than 1 was at
not being able to bo present at your
banquet on tho 11th inBt. I had
had no hint that yon had any surprise in store lot- mc; but I would
have liked at least to tender a verbal thanks to you all. Now you
must accept In cold print the warm
feelings ot gratitude your kindliest)
has cooked.
1 want to make sure of saying Just
one thing, It Is that I W1 n(!V«r
likely to forget my connection with
the Lndysmith Football Club, lt did
not need nny souvenir to keep alive
the memories of the battles, the Victories and ueicats, we onjoyed and
sutlcred together but I am more than
pleased to know that I also am remembered. I have always said, both
in public and In private, and I still
say, that a tetter lot of boys it was
never my good fortune to be con-
Bectodwitll. You know, sir, that to
ect ns manager to a senior football
eleven is not always a smooth,nor
an easy task. My position was rendered perhaps still more diftlcult by
the fact that I was called on to
pass a iree and independent criticism
upon thc play bf the team as a
whole and upon the individual players. I only want to state hero that
I always, so far as I know, and so
far as I was able, wrote impartially and expressed my opinions on
what I honestly considered tne event
of the play, I never intentionally
t.pnnen* a word calculated to hurt, a,
player's feelings; but, ot course, H
was impossible to avoid giving ol-
tense to some. No man can please
everybody; more than that, no one
who ia a man will try, Tho point Is
thnt the players gave me credit for
at least fairness and honesty, and
ln the locket that I am now wear-
In; I have tangible proof tbat tbey
believe I was only seeking to the
best of my poor ability to serve
them and to advance tho Interests ot
the club. I shall ever look back with
pleasure to my connection with, the
club, and time will never blot out
tho memory of the many anxious
trip*, strenuous battles, and Jolly
times we had together.
In conclusion permit me to express
my best wlshos for tht future success of the club. In the season thnt
I was connected with tho club we
tell just short ot success, and In our
failure lack of fortune to us played
an even bigger part than lack of I
merit. Since my removal Irom ladysmith the club |s stronger than
over fn playing talont. But a team
ot stars will always tall betore .a
team of mcdlrcrltlcs unless thoy nre
In harmony ono with the other, nml<
ready to sink all dllleroncos to servo'
and secure tlio interests of tho club
as /» whole,  Ladysmith can turn'out.
to-day a stronger eleven than any
other club in tho province but, to
do full justice to themselves, the
boys must cultivato that cijprlt de
de corps which transforms cloven
units luto u single harmonious whole
With tho same fighting spirit which
characterized thc team of old they
ought to prove almost invincible on
any field on the coast.
This has grown Into a tremendously long letter, but I left in such
a rush that I was unable to put my-
sdll on "record." That it should
'lave fallen upon your devoted head
Is only poetic justice. I wish to
thank you personally for your very
kind references to myself in your letter, and with every good wish to
yourself, to the club, and to the
beys, I nm, truly yours,

Another By-law
Big Football
Game To-morrow
A tract of land which several
months ago was a veritable wilderness in the central section of Newfoundland is to-day a town ot 2,000
inhabitants, equipped with the most
modern devices tor labor conservation, comfort and expedition.
The town is Grand Fulls, which
has its inception in the fact that a
wealthy English' newspaper owner dei
sired to assure himself of a continuous supply of pulp to manufacture
hilt paper is the latest ot the boom
towns which have sprung up on the
Eorth American continent periodical;
In the present case, however, private capital and enterprise are entirely responsible and tho inhabitants are men carefully chosen because ot their fitness as model citizens, skilled pulp-makers or laborers,
and their wives and children.
Within 60 square miles of territory
have been laid out and to a large extent, erected tbe various component parts ot this model municipality
in the ancient colony cf Newfoundland. Already a dam 1,000 feet wide
has' been built bo that 1,000,0001
test ol logs can be stored at ail
times, assuring the town's. Inhabitants ot steady occupation.
Two separate railroad line*, a power station ot 45,000 horse power capacity, a private telephone system
and nearly 400 attractive and serviceable houses are also.Included in the
present equipment of the town. It
Is expected to place several steamboats in commission on a regular
schedule as soon as active manufacturing Is begun. This will be early
next autumn.
It is understood that the origin*',
estimate of the laying out ot tho
town provided for the expenditure of
(6,000,000 inclusive of the land,
which was very expensive because ot
the great growth ot timber.
It is this extensive stretch of timber-which is the town's bread and
butter, From this, houses have been
constructed, the great, dam built,,
mills erected, steamboat piers built
and telephone poles shaped.
A corps of the leading forestry experts ot-Cnnada and tho United States has already planned the method
and mean* ol cutting the trees and
to provide for new growth.
lor, and tbe whole subject thoroughly discussed.
Mr. C. H. Burgess, representing Jfililam C. Brent, ot Toronto, reached Ladysmith last Thursday, and spent part of the day in consultation
with the Mayor, and late ln the evening the members of the City Council mot Mr. Burgess and discussed at length the trouble over thc present sower by-law. Mr. Burgee* wfis anxious to settle the matter as simply as possible, and with that end In view the council decided'to send
the Mayor to Victoria, and there in the presence oi Mr. Taylor discuss
th'i  whole question.
Yesterday morning Mayor Nicholson and Mr. Burgess went down to
Victoria and during thc afternoon a conference was held with Mr. Tay-
It was hoped that the
difficulty could le adjusted by   submitting   a   supplementary    by-law
which would fully mcet the requirements of the Toronto firm, and indeed
Mr.  Burgess expressed himself satisfied to accept this solution of   the
problem, provided it was strictly in accordance with tile law. But this
is where the hitch may occur, and it wa9   suggested ad   an alternative
proposition that the original by-law with  the additional clauses might
have to he submitted to tho ratepayers.   Should this be necessary the
tho by-law will be drafted in Victoria, and a copy kept there.   The original copy will be forwarded to the, company's    solicitor in Toronto,
and if satisfactory Mr. Burgess wlll6be notified by wire and the by-law
will be submitted without unnecessary delay.
In thc latter event, tbe Brent people are prepared to pay all expenses in connection with drawing tbe by-law and also the printing of the
now debentures.

Police Magistrate . Harrison had
rather an Interesting1 assault case he-

Wa.ter Mylea hud J. II. Robinson

towards Myles at his ranch last
Monday morning. Both gave evidence and the testimony of Mr. Myles was ln the direction ol proving

so. Robinson admitted having warn:

Mr. Myles trqm the railway company. Th* latter wa* grailng hi*

meeting of the council Monday night.
To Develop
Vancouver Island
William Whyto, vice-president ot the Canadian Pacific railway, passed through Ladysmith to-day In company with Mr. H. B. Tieasley and
a party of frlonds. It is understood thnt the principol object ot Mr.
Whyte's visit is to examine into the prospect* ot husinees to bo developed by tho extension of tho E. ft N. railway to the north end ot the
Island. In conversation with, a representative, of. The Chronicle Mr.
Whyto expressed himself as greatly interested in fthe development work
now going on around Ladysmith. Mayor Nicholson drtW Mr. Whyte's
nttontlon to tho necessity of a better steamboat service between here
and Vancouver, and it is quite likely the vice-president will glvo
matter bis attention during his present visit to the coast.
The premier football teams" of British Columbia, Nanaimo United and
Ladysmith, meet to-morrow in their
first game this season in the Island
League series. So far Ladysmith
have n good lead standing 7 points
ior four games, Nanaimo having 4
points for two game*, and a win
practically lands thc championship
here. The local boys are in good
shape, and are prepared to turn tbe
trick' on their old opponents. The
game promises to. be a good one, and
those who attend may expect to sen
the greatest game ot tbe season.
In the game tomorrow  the Ladysmith team will   be. the same that

Los Angeles, April 06.—Lost ia
the desert for 15 years, Albert
Courtney, a mining prospector and
British subject heard yesterday for
the first time that Queen Victoria
was dead and the name of President
Roosevelt was strange to him, and
not an echo of the Boer war had
reached his ears. All the great
facts and occurrences of recent years
were matters of which he was ignorant. Courtney was'a recluse and did
not seo a book or paper during the.
entire period from the time he buried himself in the desert until he
visited San Bernardino to ask amoilg
other things, after Queen Victoria's
"How is the queen?" was one ol
his first questions. He was told,
