OITY DEBENTURES
STILL UNSOLD
Council  Unable to Deal With    Fire
Chief Smith's Request ami Aid.
Drown Tnkes Up "Ta'xpay-
er's"   Lottor.
The twenty-eighth meeting of   tho
city council wus hold in tlie council
chamber on Monday evening.   Mayor
Nicholson  presided and there    wero
j present Aldermen Campbell, Roberts,
1 Haworth. Ilrown and Matheson.
A communication wos read from
Mr. p. Tt. Ilrown, of Victoria, relative to tho sale of. the city debentures. His client, ho said, would not
take up tho stock at par, but if the
council would make a discount so as
to givo 7 per cent on the $23,000 ho
would tyke thom up, Tho lottor was
laid over for future reference.
Tho following letter from the Cub-
ello Cigar Manufacturing   Company,
Vancouver, was read:
The Mayor, Ladysmith, B. C.
Door Sir,—As we arc thinking of
moving our factory from Vancouver
owing to labor troubles hero, we
would like to hear from you regarding same. Wo arc un old established
linn and, would employ ono hundred
peoplo.' We would locate in your
city providing you would offer some
Inducement. Our proposition to you
is for a bonus of say $-.5,000, or a
suitable building for tho accommodation of 100 workpeople and £10,000
for ten years with interest.
We would liko to hear from vou at
onco as regards the best offer your
city could make us. Or if vou think
proper our manager could come and
interview you on the matter, as wo
want to settle in a cltv at once.
Yours truly,
Cubello Cigar Manufacturing Co.
The letter was ordered filed aud
the clerk instructed to send a suitable reply to tho company stating
that the city could, nut entertain the
granting of cash bonuses.
•Accounts amounting to $258.15
were presented and referred to: tho
finance committee to bo paid If found
correct.
Muyor Nicholson, as chairman of
the street committee, reported that
work was proceeding on tho improvements ordered last week. A path hud
boon made from Mr. Hussvl's residence past the colliery olllce to Mr.
Tlpsosky's, connecting with the Esplanade. Also a sidowalk was being
laid up Kitchener street to First
Avenue.
Aid. Haworth reported that It was
tho wish of the Firo Wardens for tho
whole council to deal with Fire Chief
Smith's request for $25.00 to defray
his oxponses whilo attonting the convention of tho fjro chiefs at Victoria.
Muyor Nicholson said thnt personally if their flro chief went to Victoria, ho would ho in favor of paying
tho actual oxponses, tthat was actual
travelling expenses and hotol bills.
Tho proposal was evidently not
vory favorably regarded, Aid. Camp-
boll thought thnt alt the council
could ho expected to pay for would
ho the hotel and travelling oxponses.
The council could not provide for
whiskey hills, nnd there were good
hotels ot $1.00 and 91.50 o da-y.
I Aid. Haworth—I would just like to
nsk Aid. Campbell if ho were with a
; crowd of people who were all putting up at 92 or SI' a day hotels
would ho step aside and go into     a
!'-hooper hotel?
Aid. Campbell—I don't bolleve   in
paying pic-tdc money to people    to
make a trip like that.
Fire Chief Smith explained that
out of tho money he had asked for
a fee of $7.50 would go to the convention.
i Aid. Brown thought that if thoro
were any boneflts to bo gained it
would be all right to nllow their fire
chief reasonable oxponsos. Aid. Moth-
oson, however, hnd expressed tho
opinion that thoro wos nothing to ho
learned from tho Victoria peoplo ns
to how to fight a firo.
i Aid, Matheson Raid.ho hod expressed something to thnt offect. He had
neon tho Mazes that hnd occurred in
'Viotoria in .lunc, and certoinly ho
'did not thtnk thoy hnd anything to
.learn from tho methods used on that
.occasion. However, thore might be
suggestions and discussions of somo
, value at the convention, but whether
thore would ho anything to be learned ho didn't know. So far as tho
hotol business wns concerned ho himself olwnys wont to the sumo hotol
•whether ho wns on a private visit
or on n mission for tho city.
Tho business was again lniil over
for another week.
Aid. Brown suid Hint ho would like
to sov somethjng about tho sanltnry
conditions of the town. Thero was it
ditch running awoy from the Chinoso
hnkory which wns a little bit dirty.
Tho ditch needed to bo flushed out'a
little hit ond it would bo all right.
Somebody had boon making himself
vory busy and had filled up The
Standard with n lot of rot. Tho
writer marie It nppoor thnt ho had
made one tour of inspection and no
moro. That wns hot tho truth. Tho
council should hnve heard the tonguo
lashing ho got from one woman for
tendering a little civil ndvico. Why,
he had to order hor into the houso
with a throat of bringing her into
court.
He thought Mr. Thornley could
give thom a lot of holp. Ho could
tell them whothor or not Ihero wore
propor receptacles In lho closots, ond
whether all tho closots were cleaned
out.
Aid. Haworth said thoro wns anothor bud place Inside Siler's livery
■tabled, and thero wns a had closet
up tho alloy wny from Siler's
wator down Into tho ravine. As it
was now, it emptied'into tho kind of
pond holow the Esplanade und he
had soon men wading through it. Leo
had declared himself to be a law-
abiding citizen and he had horo an
opportunity of proving it.
Aid. Matheson brought tho attention of the council to a nuisance between Mr. Kerr's plnco and Gardener's storo. Someone had dumped
somo earth into the ditch with   the

LACROSSE
CHAMPIONSHIP
•
New Westminster Scores Second Decisive Victory Over Shamrue: s
and Lilt the Minto Cup.
Hats oil to ths plucky New Westminster lacrosse team. Their trip
to Montreal this time has not boos
unsuccessful, for by defeating tbs
Shamrocks yesterday they oome
back with the blue ribbon of the lacrosse world—the Minto Cup, emblematic of the championship ol
Canada, and for that matter of tbs
world,
Aftor tho showing the team made
last week against the Shamrocks,
when they defeated them by tbs
narrow margin of one goal, with
two of tbe crack shamrocks oil, tbs
wise ones-of the east-had it all
figured out that New Westminster
would go down snd out tbis game.
They had it all llgured— on paper-
that the wet weather was favorabls
to tho coast boys, nnd that with a
dry field and ths entire Shamrock
toam in the Held against them they
would lie badly defeated.
They i—ikoned without thslr guests
however. Tbey forgot that indomitable western pluck thnt was out
to win, forgot that tho Koyal City
hoys had had a hard railway trip,
that many of them were not foclimr
well and generally forgot to calculate whnt a week's rest and the
experience of ono gnmo against the
Shamrocks, would do for thoir team.
This Is borne out by the following
despatches:
lst ghme-New Westminster, A,
Turnbull, 7 mlnutea.

ssn, 15 seconds.

Macedonia Maids
Cast Aside Veils
Jloelem Command Obeyed tor     Centuries ie Uescinded by lYioeU.
MOULIN, July DH.-L-oeptttches received here today from Monaatir
state that the women of all Macedonia are parading the etreotB unveiled, rejoicing in tht granting ot
the new constitution by tht Sultan.
The parades are tbo result ot an order issued by a Moslem priest cancelling tht command of tht Koran,
that all women must wear veils in
public, and for the lint time lacen-
ional aspect. Soattlo, it is truo, iB
tho only American city to outer a
team this season, but ir tho league
makes the progress Its promoters anticipate, thoro mny be others the following year. Meantime the competition -will be representative of the
best football on the Coast. The Vancouvor team will in all essentials be
an all-Mainland eloven, and the Victoria aggregation will represent the
pick of soccer talent in tho Cupitul
City.
Nanaimo and Ladysmitli will always be conceding something of a
handicap. It is impossible to -got
a choice of many players and practically tho one eleven will be pitted
against, representative elevens from
Vancouvor. Victoria and Seattle. It
is up to tho two towns to take up
the business in earnest, and leave
nothing undone to bring tho pennant
to the north of the Island.
Tho ono great result of the League will be that tho home crowds
will bo treated to a series of high-
class encounters. Vancouver and Nanaimo particularly, should furnish
enough and'to spare of excitement,!
and both Victoria and Scuttle will
bo ablo to put formidable elevens in
tho field.
Tho League was born on Saturday
evening in one of the rooms of the
Uriard Hotel, Victoria. Tho mooting w.as attended by Mr. Con Jones,
and Will Ellis, of Vancouver; Messrs
G. G. Duncan and A. Lockloy, of
Victoria; It. C. Christian, of Seattle; F, McColl Vnd J. Waugh, of Nannimo, and Jas. Adam and.R. H.
Hindmarch, of Ladysmith.
Tho flrst question wns that of to
bo or not to bo, and the feeling of
the mooting was unanimously and enthusiastically in favor of the formation of the League. The Constitution of the now association was then
tnckled, and little fault can be found
with it ns it was finally adopted. A
full copy will appear in the next issue of the Standard.
The two clauses that led to most
discussion wore those dealing with J
tho entrance fees of tho teams and
the transfer of playors. In regard
to tho fonner it was eventually decided that tho ' annual subscription
for each team should be SID.00 aud
that 5 per cent, of tho not receipts
of ench gate should he paid into tho
League funds. With regard to the'
registration and transfer ot players'
evory delegate was desirous of putting an end to tho poaching of players. It Is, however, an evil the remedy for which it is difficult to find,
and for tho present the most stringent provision the meeting could devise was that a "player should only
bo transferred whon hc could prove
that ho had not boen given a place
on tho team for which he was registered for three consecutivo games.
There are objections to this, also,
but maybe it will work for this
season.
After the adoption of the -Constitution and by-laws the election of
officers took place. Mr. Con Jonos
wns elected president; Mr. R. ,-R.
Hindmarch, vice-president; nnd Mr,
Will Ellis, secretary treasurer. That
buslnoss over there caine thc drawing up of the schedule and before
this had been fixed up to everybody's
satisfaction it had turned midnight.

A COOL REQUEST.
It is rather difficult to decide haw
to take the lettor from tho L'abello
Cigar Manufacturing Company which
was read at the Council meeting on
Monday night. It is, of course, gratifying to think that the advantages
the city offers as a location for
factories and industrial works are
I eing recognized. Howevor, there is
i nother impression convoyed in this
particular letter which tends to
spoil nny gratification wo might honestly have felt on the other count.
Over and above the honor and d's-
tinction which have been thrust upon
us, there is the question of terms. It
may be impossible to calculate the
benefits that    would accrue to
town from tlio location of a lnrgo
cigar factory hero, but there is
mistaking whnt it would cost U8 to
purchase them. A cool request for
Sir,,000 ns a bonus stares us in the
face. And this example of colossal
"gall" comes from an "old established firm." One would have Imagines that such n firm aa that could
have been able to financo Its own
business. If tbe Council found tho
money thov info-lit Just as well run
lhe fiict' rv, nml band the ,proflt8 over to the relief of taxation. We all
want to seo factories and industries
stnrterl in our city, nnd the council
can I e depended on to put nothing
In the way of anv desirable company
that eeo!,s to locate here. But a
fifteen thousand dollar bonus is a
|u-epotsteroiis request, and cheapens
both tlio party by whom it is preferred and the party to whom
lt is addressed. The Council
wore perfectly right In refusing to
give it serious consideration.

Easily Managed.
Tho Government promptly closed
tho deal, making conditions that one
settler should build a houso on each
section fit for settlement, that a
saw, ml" of three to live million capacity should be built and Indians
employed therein, and that the patent should issue in three years
when the conditions should be fulfilled. Also the Department kindly nc-
ccpted Mr. Wilson's valuator.
So the partners obtained 29,301
acres which McAulay valued at $9,-
980.75. For some reason the Gov
ornmont marked this down to $9,-
017.50.
Everything Changed.
The partners made a small payment at the time and paid other
sums within the next three years.
Thoy brought no' settlers, built no
mill, but sot about selling their concession. Finding the saw mill an
impediment-thoy asked and obtained
the right to build a portable mill
instead. Then they got the saw mill

These new features are embodied in

LONDON, July 2,3.—The beginning
of the Olympic games showed same
lukewarmness, Iu the United Kingdom, the morning papers today. reflect the enormous interest and enthusiasm witnessed l*y the strange
scene in the stadium yesterday.
There is only one voico, however, in
the whole-hearted tribute to the
greatest' of victories together with
the fullest sympathy for the pitiable fate of Dorando. There is not
a single note against the judge's decision, which on every hnnd, it is
granted could not have 1 een other
wise than it was.
Much regret is expressed that over-
zealous oillciais could not have been
oil the track so that Dorundot might
be left to his own efforts to complete the Journey if that was humanely possible which most 01" the
observers, think he was not in condition to achieve.
The Daily News, in en editorial,
says: "Nothing more painful or
deplorable was ever seen at a public spectacle. It was painful in tho
exhibition of human exhaustion, deplorable in the exhibition of human
folly. It may be questioned whether so great a trial of human
durance should be sanctioned. We|
hope the Stadium authorities, while
severely repudiating the action of!
the oillciais who helped thc Italian,
will congratulate America on her
complete and conclusive victory. It
loft England entirely out of the reckoning,"
The sporting ■papers are equally
convinced that the judges had no
other courso to pursue. They congratulated the Americans for their
splendid showing and expressed great
fHsappointment at the poor performances of the British runners.
The Times, in an editorial says:
"Doraadp. by his gallant    struggle,

CHICAGO, July 25.—Arrangements*
are -iract'oally comploted for tho eon
veutinn of the Independence party,
which la to meet in this city Monday to adopt a  platform and name
ZZZH VS_. ItetZe mmmMmMimimMmmmmmft
convention to complete ita business j
in two daya. Monday will bo devoted to the organisation of tho convention and the appointment of tho
usual commltteo, while Tuesday is
to be devoted to the adoption of tho
platform and the naming of the ticket.
In point of numbers tha convention
will not be very large. Some states will be without representation,
liut what the convention lacks in
numbera it promises to make up in
enthUBioein. Wm. B. Hearst, the
guiding star of the league, and his
asaociates, believe they have good
cause for Jubilation. They profess
to believe that the national election
thia year will be the lost wherein
the old Democratic party will seriously contest with tlie Republican
Party for the control of the government. In the next presidential election, they expect the Independence
party to be the leading minority
party and entertain hopes of winning in the presidential election in
1913.
With these Ideas firmly fixed in
ihoir minds, the men who have been
won over to the Independence Party
movement are preparing for a vig-
uroua campaign. They predict that
the purty'e candidate ior president
will poll 1,500,000 votes in the November election. The Hearst leaders make no secret of their determination to defeat the Democratic ticket this fall. In doing thia they
maintain they will ba opening tho
way for a real radical party. With
the tinea clearly drawn between the
radicals and the conservatives, Mr.
Hearst and his leaders profess to
oxpect_ eventually to defeat the Republican party and elect one ol the
Independence League following president.
It aeoms to be the prevailing opinion that the convention here next
week will nominate Hearst himself
himself with a whirl of excitement.
But Mr. Hearst insists he is not seek
ing the nomination. It ia possible
he may refuse It and insist on the
nomination of another.
