Uio club management.
Thoro wus a gooil attendance ol
players and members and the meeting was characterized by a lino ind
cheerful spirit of harmony. The management of the club was placod on
an entirely now looting, and a iV-OK
at most should set things going and
witness a revival of tho old-time enthusiasm and zeal.
The first business was the appoint,

Air. W. U. Simpson was once again
unanimously elected to that olfico.
Then came tho executive eoiiunittee
and Manager Hindmarch suggested
a committee of five to select tho
team, aided by anothor cauuaitteo to
look after tho* grounds. After some
discussion tho suggestion wus adopted, and the working uud executive
personnel of the club is as follows:
Vice-President—W.  U. Eraser.

who shall travel with tho team at

There is every hope of the ;lub
going ahead. It is time a move was
made, and some degree of enthusiasm
worked up. There is suro to bo some
criticism aud a certain amount oi

majority of thu club's supporters.
The motto of tho club should be tne

Sir Wilfrid Laurier con thank himself for the appearance of provincial
'.romiers and ministers with Mr.
Burden at his future meetings. A-
mong these will be Sir James Whitney, when ho returns from England,
und some of his ministers in tho
meantime; Mr, ltobliu, premier of
Manitoba; Mr. llu/en, premier of
Now Brunswick, and Mr. McBrldo,
premier of British Columbia. Sir
John Macdonald was not disposed
to    mix federal ond provincial poll
provincial victory has been obtained
against all the power that tho federal administration could exert.
Things are UiUerent.
When Sir Wilfrid took ofllco ho
had at his back the solid support of
ull the provincial governments from
lhe Atlantic to the prairies. First
he lost Manitoba, then Ontario, then
New Brunswick. A straight Conservative government has taken the
place of a mixed organization in
British Columbia. Today more
than half of the people ot Canada
are under Conservative provincial
governments. Those of Ontario,
British Columbia and New Brunswick have been established since Sir
Wilfrid last appealed to the peoplo.
llo has made it impossible for these
administrations to be neutral in the
coming fight. Moreover, the premier will find that the various machines which in times past manipulated ballots antl stole elections will
no longer have the protection ot the
department of justice in the provinco where they have carried on the
most successful operations. Twice
since 1001 the peoplo of Ontarii
have condemned and sontenced this

Sir Wilfrid is further embarrassed
with tho presence in his cabinet uf
the chief personage of the iale i\ew
Brunswick government, .which last
March weut down In disgrace, be-
l'ure an indignant population, and
has been still further discredited by
disclosures made since in the examination of the public accounts. Probably there was never in an orgau-
i/.ed community outside of South
tfuieriea, Turkey or higypt, such a
record of private dealings with public funds. Ministers used the public treasury as a private bank, draw
ing money when they needed it, paying part of it book when Ihey were
in funds, und then drawing more at
electiontinies. These transactions
never appeared in tho public accounts, and it was not until the
government was overthrown and auditors appointed that tho public understood what a "suspense go-
count" meant in New lir__wi_~ finance. Mr. Pugsley is busy explain
ing that he gave value in extra services for all the overdrafts which
he has returned to the treasury
sinco the change of government.
Some of these services were rendered
eight or ton years ago and wero
supposed to be settled for. Most
people thought they were excessively
rewarded at the time, seeing that
Mr. Pugsley with
of $2,100, was in the habit of draw
ing six to ten thousand dollars a
year from the treasury tor legal services.
Bather Cowardly.
Just beforo parliament met last
November Mr. Pugsley, speaking in
New Brunswick, made certain charges against Mr. Borden in regard to
campaign funds. When the houso
met ho was challenged to make his
charges there lo Mr. Borden's face.
Among others who made this challenge was Mr. A. E. Kemp, of Toronto. It camo naturally from him
becauso Mr. Pugsley's attack on Mr.
Borden was in the form of a reply
made in Toronto by Mr. Kemp.
Whon Mr. Kemp faced Mr. Pugsley
in tho houso he said among ...othor
"The Hon. Gentleman (Mr. Pugsley) has resorted to the lowest sort
of a campaign in this mattor. He
hus gone beforo public meetings of
his partisan supporters and ho has
made statements which I challenge
hlm to make in this house face to
face with us. Now I hope
thatthe minister of public works will
deem it his duty to make good what
he has stated outside thc houso.
. . if the Hon. Gentleman refuses
to go further, if he is satislied to
make statements and insinuations in
a way he has done outside of this
house without taking stops to make
his position good, I cannot but feel
that he Is condemned boforo tho
country for making statements that
lie know were untrue. Sir, he has
talked of these things on the hustings, but he hns sat in this house
liko a whipped spaniel not dnring to
npen hls mouth. He is now at the
bar of public opinion and let him
choose his course."
Mr. Pugsley continued to sit like a
whipped spaniel during tho seven
months of the session, and though
repeatedly challenged, made no attempt to substantiate in Mr. Borden's presence what he said about
him when Mr. Borden was thousands
of miles awny. But, strange to say
nn the second political meeting when
the minister nddrcssed tn his own
province nftor the session wns ovor,
ho returned to the old slanders, nail
inly explained bis silence in tlio
house by easing thnt Mr. Komp was
unworthy nf his nttontlon, though it
wns the same Mr. Komp whoso remarks called forth Mr. Pugsley's original statements.
Libel Suits That Failed.
It may be further remembered thut
when Mr. Pugsley .made his first
charge a Toronto newspaper pointed out that Mr. Pugsley himself hud
been accused of conspiring a m
years before for the overthrow of
the Laurier govornmoul, whloh he
wos then pretending to support. Mr.
Pugsley ut once gave notice of a
libel suit, which tho paper welcomed
as likely to throw somo light on a
mysterious chnpter of Cnnudlnn political history. Mr. Pugsley never
proceeded with this suit, nor with
noy others thnt he threatened. It
was Mr. Pugsley, who as Mr. Em-
merson's adviser, instituted proceedings for criminal libel In tho
wine, women and graft" . affair.
Thnt suit also collapsed, together
with three civil libel suits instituted
in th© samo matter, Mr. Pugsley and

in lhe 11resent state of the Dominion nuances, and in view of tho grotesque financial methods of tho Pugsley administratiun in New liruna*
wick, it is uniurtuuatc that Air.
i'ugsbey should have charge of one
of the great spending departments of
the Canadian government. F.nough
was discovered last session iu dredging contracts alono to show that
this minister is an easy mark for
contractors. That was illustrated
in the new contracts given on tho
lakes. It wus also found that one
dredging company, working in the
St. John harbor, in ten months received $375,000, and it is stated on
good authority that $100,000 of
this covered nil operating expenses,
$150,000 purchased and repaired the
dredge, leaving the company $125,-
000 i roiit and the dredge to the
good. The chief member of this
company is tho son of a member of
parliament and obtained tho contract without tender. Just now
Mr. Pugsley finds It necessary to
uOquiro for his party a newspaper in
St. John, and it is a significant
fact that tho chief movers in that
onterprlso are mon with dredging
contracts. Tho snd result of Mr.
Pligsloy's interference with the last
provincial election makes him anxious to gather In help from every
source for another sectional appeal.

The question ol the grade ol that
section of the sidewalk on Pin_
avenue which ilea between Blair _
Adam's corner und High street will
ugain cuuio up before the Council at
its uoxt mooting on Monday evening. Mayor Nlchulsun describes it
us a dilllcult problem, and there Is
little room for doubt that whatever
course of action tho Council takes,
will be bitterly and severely critici--
ed. l-erjiape it is all the better
that opinion on tho subject is
ovenly divided, for it at toast places
the aldermen in au easy position.
And really we aro unablo to see any
cause for hesitation. As-the matter stands tho city cannot interfere
any further with tho sidewalk, nor
will it be in a position to assume
the obligations of lowering it for;
yenrs to come. This fact alone
should bo justificution for the alteration ol the original grade to tlml
at which the sidewalk is now laid.
The profile prepared by Mr. King
and exhibited at the Council meeting
on Monday evening, shows that tho
sidewalk requires to bo lowered a-
bout two feet at tho curncr of Blair
and Adam's store, over three feet in
front of the Europe hotel, and over
four feet at the corner of High
street. Now, supposing the sidewalk was lowered to this level, tho
tho obligation would legally full upon the city either of compensating
tho property-owners affected, or of
putting down the houses and business premises to the same grade. It
needs no expert nt figures to see
that in its presont state the city
could never undertake such an enterprise. That being so thero is really
nothing to be said against the proposal to establish tho grado of the
present sidewalk as the official city
level. If in thc future the city should
grow in extent and in wealth then
it will be Just ns easy for the council of thot day to again altor the
grade and restore it to its original
level. Howovor, for the present thero
is renlly no grounds for argument,
and the only possible solution consistent with n propor encouragement
to building, is to fix tho official
grade of the street ns that at which
the present sidowalk is laid.

fighter from Milwaukee whom Stanley had already onco defeated.
Tho first result is that Stanley's
hard won fame and ruddy glory have
departod from him. Up to tiaibor Day
his career had been almost meteoric

Almost unknown up to tho time of
his first meeting with Joe-Thomas,
ho has sinco then been tho shining
figure in tho world of pugilism. Ho
has never refused a fight and perhaps
he has beon sponding his strength

Now his term of obscurity has
come nnd ho has tasted tho bittors
of defeat just nftor climbing to-tho
dizziest hoights of success.  Just ox-

Nelson's sole fighting assets are a
pair of flailing arms and ironbound
ribs.and jaw.-This natural but untutored hitter, goes up against the
master of them all ln tho very zenith
of his career, and chases him round
and round tho. ring for 42 rounds.

Battling Nelson. In tho ond Qans
is glad and fain to take tho decision
on n foul.
Now it has always appeared to me
that if Uans was abnormally clover
(and thore is no doubt that ho was)
a man that could stand up to him
for forty rounds must havo had
somothlng else than a hard jaw and
iron ribs. Nolson novor got any crod-
it for his achievement. Gans was declared to bo only a black shadow,
a skeleton of himself, but the fact
was that it was as hard for Nelson
to make tho weight as it wus for
Gans. And now subsequent ovents
rather tend to justify Nelson's    oft
Yesterday's fight again demonstrated how ovenly matched both Gans
and Nelson are. In physique, as woll
as in battlo these two lightweights
are also well mated. The following
uro their measurements :
Height—Nolson, 5 feet 7J. Gans,
5 feet 6i inchos.

tho sporting pages of tho local press ropoated charges that he was choatod

tho tantalisingly scrappy reports   of maintained that ho nad Gans beaten
' J      '^'and that ho would prove it if over
thoy mot again. At least ho has de
the fight which havo appeared. It
would soem that Papko almost did
to Stanley what Stanley himself-had
dono to tho younger Sullivan. Kot-
chel nover appears to havo recovered
from a blow received in tho " first
round and only his nativo gumeness
nnd extraordinary stamina kept aim
on his foot to tho 12th round.
It is hardly likely that the fight
will decido tho count botweon the
two mon. Tho count stands uno each
and Papko seems to havo enough ,\t
tho Kotchol temperament to glvo a
roturn mntch os soon as it is asked
for. Tho noxt meoting will decide
who is to go after tho scalp of
Tom. Burns. Ketchcl had tho ditch,
but whether duo to a chance blow
or to Papko's superiority, ho is now
out of the hunt. It is certain, however, that ho will not bo content to
remain down and out, and it will
bo Interesting to see how this disastrous and painful experience of defeat will affect his fighting   powers.
If tho rosult of tho Ketchol-'Papko
bout was a surprise, tho decision In
the Mornn-Attell meeting was exactly what 'was expdeted. All tho experts appeared satisfied that, oar-
ring accidents, neither man could
win out in twenty-five rounds. Moran, it scorns, is tho stronger arid
sturdier of the two and In a finish
fight would start a strong favorite
In a limited number of rounds, however, Attoll is Invincible. Once his
aggressive tactics have failed him-,
Abe adopts tho defensive and his
supreme skill, quickness, and ring
generalship carry him safely out of
tho roach of tho most determined attacks.
Attoll seems to know that a finish
fight would spell disaster to .his
career ns champion. His first meoting with Moran was strenuous
enough to make him fight very riiy
ot another bout. Whon at length tho
match was agreed to Attell carried
all his own conditions. Moran wanted thc fight scheduled lor 4>5 rounds,
but Attoll would go no moro thnn
25, and tho question of superiority
is still unsettled. Of course, Abe will
retain thc title, but ho cannot boat,
tho English aspirant in a limited
contest, and ho refuses to fight to a
finish. Who then is most entitled to
the titlo, or have both men a claim
to It? Let some one who is neither
an Englishman nor an American decide the point.
The third fight was in a way, the
tit-bit of tho thrco. Battling Nelson
and Joo Gans are names to conjure
with in tho ring world. Of Gans it
may bo true thot he has fought too
long; but It Is just as1 truo that he
came to his pugilistic end at the
hands of the hardest man he was
over up against. Tako tho first meoting of the two and run over Nelson's
subsequent career. Gans was admittedly tho clovorest fightor, not only
of his class, but to bo found in the
ring. Ho was hailed as the master—

Much Agitation by Victoria Citizens
for Daily  Service on E.  & N.
Does not Move OlMcinls.
The announcement that the oillciais
nl' the LO. & N, railroad had decided
to discontinue the ilotiMo daily sor-
vieo, which hus boon ir. vo.iie during the summer, for the wild or season, has been rocui.ed by many
citizens with signs of bitter disappointment.
It was loarnod yesterday that an
agitation has 1 oen in progress, in
which a nunr.er of prominent merchants nnd men in general business
were the prime movers, to endeavor
lo induce the Dominion government
through Hon. Wm. Templemun, minister of inland revenue, to award the
E. & N. Company a bonus of §•_■,-
000 annually fer the maintenance of
such a service for the entire year
on condition that mail bo carried
both morning and afternoon to and
from Victoria and other Island centres.
When    tho   new railway     schedulo
as printed and published they concluded thut their plans had gone
astray, hut evon then they did not
despair of carrying through tlie proposal. Hun. Mr, Templeman and
Ralph Smith, tho member for thc
Nanaimo constituency, wero interviewed. Thoy listened to the arguments in favor of the double mail
service attentively, but whito thoy
would not express any opinion as
to the tjossibility of tho federal authorities taking action on thoir recommendation, they po'ntod out
th t nothing could bo done without
tho assurance of tho railway ofllcials
lhat they would ncceik' to it.
This course was pursued. A wire
was des.-utchod to It. M.-ilarpoIo
jutlining (he s'tuntion, and askin*
whether the double dolly trains c- r-
rying mail would be continued providing government aid, to the extent referred to, was received.
Ycstei'day a negative reply wus
forthcoming, and consequently the
scheme has fallen through, nnd tho
aforementioned citizons havo philosophically accepted Mr. Murpolo's decisive reply and nro looking forward
to pressing the claims of Victoria
nnd adjacent cities next yonr.—Victoria Colonist.
