Sewer Construction
Under Consideration
Thero was rati'.cr an interesting
meeting of thc city council last evening. Tbe principal questions before
the city fathers was thc best methods of preventing another visitatioii
cf smallpox, nnd thc construction of
sowers. It has been decided tc take
early precautions against another vis*
Ration of smallpox, and thc consider''
alion of the sewer tender was left,
ever till a special meeting called! for
last night.
There wero present at trie meeting:
Mayor Nicholson, in the thair, and
Aid. Matheson, Brown, Haworth,
Campbell, Dier and Roberts.
After the minutes of the last meeti
4n,; had teen read and approved, com^
munt:ations were received from, the
following:
From F. A. Dcvercaux,. Victoria;
declining to submit tender for sewer,
and offering certain suggestions as
to the conditions under which thc
sewers should be constructed.
• From \V|lis Chapman, making application for the position of engineer.
From the Buckeye Traction Nand
Ditch Company asking for the name
of the successful tenderer.
From H. K; Duetchcr, asking foi'
th; position of consulting en^nccr;
From Alex. D. Evans, asking for
the position of consulting cng'/aeer on
sewer construction.
These communications wave laid
over to be dealt with-later on.,
From Wm. Ward,»with regard to es#
timates for improving the cement
walk around Blair & Adam's store, i
| Cn ae'ount of certain difficulties
with regard to grade, this communication was laid over for a time.
The Northern Oas and Power Company as!;ed for a charter to supply
Ladysmith with gas.
The commi nication was received
and filed and a suitable reply will he
forwarded by the city clerk.
Dr. Williams, city medical health
officer, wrote complaining of a well
belonging to A. Smith, and stating'
that the water was totally unfit for
domestic purposes.
A copy of thc report will Ia sent
to4the waterworks office With the re.'
,quest that water be supplied as early
as convenient.
The B. C. Pottery Copany wrote
with regard lo .supplying pipe for the.
sewers.
Thc communication was laid over
Ior future reference.
There was'a communication from
tho department of Agriculture, recommending that the result nf thc in'
testigations of thc dairy, inspector If
sent to tlw municipal council so lhat
the latter body would Lc able lo enforce the regulations.
The communication was received
and filed, and thc city will notify th*)
department ti'.iat they will give tt
every possible aid in cwying out tbcv
regulations.
Accounts aggreagting (19.15 were
presented and referred to tho finance
committee. '.
The city medical health officer rc-
commcnJcd thc purchase of antl-tox-
ino to the value of $80.60.
Under the head of new business tho
aldermen discussed the snuHpox situation nt Nanaimo.
• It wns believed by every member of
thc board that tho greatest care
rhould be taken to prevent another
visitation. The opinion was generally expressed that at tho present tlmf
there was grave danger that thc men
working at Extension mine and living
ct Nanaimo would communicate tho
disease to thc Ladysmith men working nt tho same plarc. Some
thought thero was gross carelessness
on tho part of the Ladysmith people
who visited Nanaimo knowing that!
smallpox   was so    prevalent in that
city. Tbe latter were blamed more
than the Nanaimo people who came
here. One case was mentioned of, a
young man who visited at a house
in Nanaimo, and knew that there was
a caso of smallpox In the house. It
was staled by more than ono alderman that where it was discovered
llhat nay one had contracted the tfis»-
case through negligence, he wouldi be
compelled to pay fos the cost of his
attendance.
Aid.    Campbell spoke particularly ■ ^.^ ^ j^^ ^^ pdin.
strong on this point of going after
the disease, which provoked the remark from Aid. Watheson that if
Aid. Campbell had a sweetheart at
Nanaimo, be might hold modified
opinions.
To this Aid. Campbell replied: "II
I had a gjirl in Nanaimo I would g*iv«j
heri a wide berth justnow."
Even thc mayor could not suppress
tho laughter lhat this retort, provoked. •
After further, discussion it was decided to take ovcry precaution
against a visitaticn of thc loathsome disease, and thc proper officials
will be communicated with, and an
effort will be made to have rjl mail
matter from Nanaimo fumigated.
Then thc opening of the tenders,
for tho sewers came up. There was
only one tender, that of Mr. Hugh
McDonald.
Mr. McDonald was present, and
gave the council considerable useful
infoi'ination with regard to sewer
building.
It was decided to liobl a special
meeting Tuesday evening and finally
dispose of the matter.
A4d. Dier brought up the question
of the libellous article nn Ladysmith
in the Vancouver World. The statement was a misleading one, and
would, result in untold injury to the
city.
Mayor - Nicholson , also spoke in
strong terms with regard to the ar-
tklo. The offence was even aggravated, by thc so-called retraction of thc
World. Tho mayor referred to thc
tact that Mr. John Stc/wart, white at
Vancouver, had telephoned the editor
ot the World, but tho latter, possibly
to shield himself from the wrath of
the management ot thc paper, had
not made any statement that could
be regarded in the light of a retraction in so far as thc business interests of Ladysmith were concerned.
Every alderman at the board spoke
in the same tone, and finally it was
decided, cn motion ot Aid. Dier, seconded,by Aid. Haworth, that the city
clerk demand from the World a full
retraction of its misleading statements, thc same to oreupy the same
prominent position in the paper in
which the defamatory stutcmcnls
were published.
This motion was carried unanimously, and it is not exaggerating the
situation auy when it is stated that
the city council is intensely in earnest with regard -to the enormity ol
the offence.
After some questions with regard
to thc electric light debentures, the
council adjourned.
There was a special meeting of the
council last night, those present being Mayor Nicholson and Aid. Matheson, Dier, Campbell and Roberts. The
business before thc meeting was the
consideration of the sewer plans, and
tenders. Mr. Hugh McDonald was
present anil gave the council the benefit ol his experience. After a long
discussion in which all present too'.!
part,, it was decided to engage the
services of an experienced engineer,
who, in company with Mr. McDonald,
Will go over the plans and divide if
any economy can.be effected in carrying out the work, The. contract will
I not be awarded until thc matter ot
'lowest possible cost'.can bo settled.
Oriental Question I
in Canada
Mr. Martin Burrell, the member for
Yale-Cariboo, in an address before
the Canadian club at Toronto, a, tew
days ago, placed thc Oriental immigration Question, as it affects British
Coluinbft, in a light which must
havo carried conviction to cur..Eastern fcllowcountrymcn who arc so, indisposed to regard the Asiatic as a
dangerous settler in Canada, sayis the
Vancouver Province.    Mr. Burrell in
ted out that he considered it a fallacy to believe tnat the Japanese
trade wan so valuable to Canada as
to warrant sacrifice on, she. part ot
British Columbia or any other part
ot the Dominion to ma'^itain good ii1
lation's. "If," said Mr. Burrell^
"such a man as Lord Roberts thinks
that the presence of. 50,000 Germans
in England is a menace to that country, surely 15,090 Japanese wc now
have, and the many more who. may
come lo us, may be considered .»i ra
menace to Canada. Thc race that
developed Ontario, that pioneered its
wilderness, should do the Work in
British Columbia."
Thai Is the feature of the case
which at once strikes one living in
tliis province who realizes the rapidity ol increase of Oriental seltlenicnl
during thc past few years. II isfbc-
cause the country has so few white
settlers that these Oriental immigrants become such a serious meni*-.
It was asserted by some of, the East)
em American papers a, few months
ago, that, thc objcct'fcns to Japanese
immigration to this continent «as
more pronounced and intense in British Columbia than in any nt thc Pa.
cific States of the Union. Wc do not
l.now that this is exactly the, ease,
but there is renson why it. should be
he case. For every white citizen
which British Columbia has, the stal|
of Washington has at least two, the
state of Oregon perhaps four and California considerably more then that.
Then, too, these states arc members
of a nation of eighty millions of people, and there is a constant and an
immense pressure of population fronj
the 'East westward. Even were thc
United States laws against Asiatic
immigration much less severe than
they are there could be no likelihood
of the influx from As'» orientalizing
thoso states. It is different in Brit-
t.,h Columbia, however. In thisvpro-
vincc tho white population is sparse.
And behind us, in Canada, we have
at best but six million. It must be
remembered, too, what an enormous
country it Is that wc possess; what
a vast area of It has been untouched
and what a vast area,, too, is appeal*
ing as much, or almost as much, to
intelligent and industrious while settlement as British Columbia is.
It took lhe United Slates cpnsldcr-
a'bly' over a century to secure ils
population of eighty millions, and if
wc admit, and wc think, ts'erybody
will admit, that the 20th century, is
to be Canada's century, still It will
r*(uiro all and more than thc hundred
years, to givo us a population equal
to that cf the United Statcy—a population, that is, sufficient to assurai
us against any danger of the orien-
talization af our Pacific seaboard.
When our prairie provinces arc reasonably well settled, and when, our
fertile valleys in British Columbia
are occupied ..by people of cur own
ra*e, when our cities and towns aro
distinctly white in character, and the
great enterprises which aro bound to
exist on this coast, are in the hands
of Canadians, wc will be safe fi'om
any dnn-cr of being'demoralized by
Asiatic settlement: but, until that
time there is real danger to the province and to the people of Canada,
S3
Mclsaac-McNamee
One of thc best glovo contests ever
soon in the city of Ladysmith was
the general verdict with regard to. the
exhibition given by M. Mclsaao and
George McNamee at thc Opera House
lafit night. While neither one, had
tndergonc thc necessary amount ot
training for a big event, they proved
conclusively "that under more favorable conditions they were well able
to' take care Of themselves.
For tho first three or four rounds
it seemed as if Mclsaac bad a shade
thc best of it, but McNamec came
up fresh for every round, and in the
seventh had more, than an even
break. It cannot bo say that it was
altogether a^flght, for a, decision, and
the majority ef those present rather
regarded it in the light of a clever
exhibition- of the manly art of self-
defense. Both men .wero good-natured throughout the ten rounds, anil
when the time came for a decision it
was felt that the referee would have
some difficulty in reaching. a conclusion that would correctly meet the requirements of the situation, v When
Bouncer Brown declared it a draw
no fault was found with thc decision,
although it was felt tbat throughout
the most effective blows had been de,
livcred by Mclsaa.?.
As evidence of thc decision, it
might, Lc said that.Mclsaac himself
admits that the referee gave illic only
decision that could Jiave been given
under the circumstances, McNamee
is a heavier man that Mclsaac, and
last light he showed Dial even with,
out the necessary training he is capable ol Standing a lot of punishment,
and he can deliver a heavy blow now
and .again -when the opportunity offer? itself. If Mclsaac adheres strictly to his present abste ious way) of
living, it Is more than likely that lie
will be beard from later in another
class. Ho has physique, is quick both
with his hands and on, his feet, and
never loses his head.
The first event ol tho evening was
a three-round contest between Bouncer
Browp and J. Nicol. Either man
had inailc preparations, but it was an
interesting pielinilnary. Bouncer
showed that he had somo of, the old
vim left, and Nichol prcved that he
was a very clever amateur.
When the time came for thc star
event the house was well crowded,
and as was said before everyone was
perfectly satisfied with tho contest.
At the close McNamec challenged Mclsaac for a twenty round contest ani5
tho latter accepted, and offered to
make it a finish. Thc date for thc
next meeting has not been decided
upon yet.
The K. of P. dance in the Opera
House Frinsay evening will be iu
keeping with thc dances held by,, that
society in the past. The house will
be tastefully decorated for the occasion, and the music will be all that.
couldbe desired.
To-day, March 17, is St. Patrick's
Day, and many residents ef Ladysmith are observing the event by
wearing ^he colors,ot Old Ireland. In
nearly every city, in the.Province the
anniversary is being celebrated by
concerts, banquets, etc.*
Hugh McDonald, thc well-known
contractor of Victoria, left for home
this morning, after spending several
days in this city in connection with
the sewer contract. Mr. McDonald
has built more sewers than any, man
in British Columbia, and his work
has always; been found most satistac-
tory.
There will be a joint meeting of thc
Citizens' League and all other societies in tho city on Thursday evening, March 25, for the purpose of
considering tho proposal lo br.ild a
hospital. The secretary of lhe Lea
guc has notified tho various societies
ot whose existence he has information, and many of thc citizens who
would be likely to take an interest) in
the undertaking, but he realizes that
he may have overlooked some, and ty
these ho extends a'general invitation.
Particularly is it desirable that thc
women of thc city should interest
themselves in providing a hospital,
anh a special invitation is Issue! to
all women to be present.       ...
Ladysmith Won the
Came and Tied Nanaimo
Ladysmith again showed their su-
pcriotity over the Esquimau team
by defeating than, 5 goals to 1< Tho
game was a littio too one-sided to bo
interesting but thc large number ol
-.spectators that turned out enjoyed
tho match thoroughly. Tho day was
an ideal one and the good sprinkling
of the fair sex made the turnout so
much brighter. There is no need o
going' into details, the local team
won anu hut was the main thing
Brass ana McGuire each scored iu the
first half. Sanderson, McMillan and
Morrison got one each in the second
while Esquimau added their ouly
goat near the cud. This win iuakes
Ladysmith tic with Nanaimo, with
four points each with two games.
Esquimau, with five games played,

rogrammc Mr. Alex. Aucliinvolo
sang two songs, which wero dcscrvsdj^

nights of the week a, specially good
programme will be presented. The
first will, be a picture of "Nature
Life in tho Soudan," and then a
"Visit to the Public Nursery," "The
Road to Ruin," "The Face, on the
Bar-room Floor," the latter two being particularly interesting, and a
comic one entitled "Fly Paper:" In
addition to these pictures Alex. Au-
chinvole will- sing "You Own My
Heart Forever, Madeline." Altoge-1
ther tho programme , is in, keeping
with thc excellent pictures that, have
been shown at this house since it first,
opened, and the audiences should he
equally as large as in ?he past.
Mr. R. Marpole is now out tin tho
E. & tt. line, and in a day or two
will be in Ladysmith. Mr. Marpolo
will haw many matters to look into
uring his visit here, the principal
one being the arrangements tor dis.
posing of thc lately cleared land*.   A
c*w days ago. a deputation from Lr-
dysirith waited upon Mr. Mrrpolp. at
Vancouver to impress i.oon him "lie

ter, it will bo their duty to sec Mr.
Marpole when ho reaches hero and gesj

up his mind, il would be well to c*>v
lain to him that the opinion of tho
citizens as to tlio desirability of better transportation facilities and let-,
initial rales has not undergone any
change since their visit to Vancouver,
and ttiat an early solution of the
prcblem is essential to thc future
welfare of the city.
On Monday night the Opera House
was crowded to the limit the first
show,.and a good-sized crowd wee in
for the second, the attraction being
the Clans and Nelson prize fight picture which is a very fine reproduction,
and greatly, pleased the audience. The.
film Is shown to-night for the last
time. To-morrow night a new programme will be given, the "feature* being a series ot pictures taken during
oncof the national "Spanish Bull
Fi,.b:s" and correctly reproducing
the event from beginning to end. Ah-
cne of th> national "Spanish Bull
he "Held by Bandits," a story that
is sure to arouse thc interest ol thc
spectator. Thc comical end will be
filled by "A Bloodless Duel" and
and "Dreams and Realities." The
managers state that this program is
sure to ma'.c a hit and it will be
shown two nights only, Thursday and
Saturday, as the Knights ot Pythias
hold their ball in the Opera House on
Friday night.
There will lc a very important
meeting of those interested in the development ol thc Mclntyre Foundry
Co., at Russell'? hall, over the feed
store, next Friday evening. It should
be borne in mind that iu building up
this industry the cil Vcns of Ladysmith are helping to build up the
city. There will' be a great demand
for the product of this company during the next few years onthis island,
and it is with thc object ofbcinj aid'
to supply this demand tbat the company Is now selling stock. E\x>ry
man who has looked into the affairs
of the company is perfectly satisfied
with what has been done, mil II is
satisfactory to learn that the shares
art-being taken up by local men, and.
that a great deal of the stock has already been sold, Every dollar Invested in the stock of tho Mclntyre Foundry Company means that the money
will be spent at home, and local industries will be developed.
The Novelty theatre has been
crowded every night this week and
the pictures presented have all been
ot the usual Interesting character.
The two best pictures are "Conway
to Dublin" and the "Blue and tho
Gray." The latter tells a very pretty story ot ths recent United States
Canadian Sovereigns

While a comparatively small number of Canadian sovereigns were
coined a few months ago in Ottawa,
it appears that none, or at least very;
few, have been so far receVci in this;
city. It is said, upon one hand, that'
only a couple of hundred of them
were coined, and that all these were
incontinently gobbled up by members
of parliament, being cither kept as
mementoes or as watch-chain souven.
irs, and if for sale at all, being held
at a pretty high price, f-25 or more.
Tbe assistant receiver general has
however, received a few silver coins
of the Canadian mintage, and in due
course distributed them among the
local benking institutions But these
cannot in any way be distinguished

As thc coin value of twp half dollar**

Affords a net profit to the country ot

The Diary of a Queen
Lord Eslier, deputy [pycitoot ot
Windsor Castle, whoso "Letters ol
Queen Victoria"- were published in
WW, recently gave an interesting lecture at the Royal Institution on
Queen Victoria, The lecture was
6iven with thc permission of the King,
and contained much new information
concerning thc late Queen. From tlie
ago of 13, and until within a lew
days of her death, Lord Esher said,
Queen Victoria kept a daily privoto
journal which would never be published in its entirety, These, works,
recording the daily life events pi the
Queen, would fill a hundred volumes.
All were -Written in her small running
hand. Hor entire correspondence and
papers, when arranged and complete,
would fill 1,250 volumes.   *
Lord Esher said that the Journal
showed that, trom her childhood,
Queen Victoria took herself most
seriously, and that, as Queen, -she always had the courage to act alone
and "with confidence In my country,"
Her influence was uniformly thrown
cn the side ot peace, the speaker declared, and there was no single instance IA her whele reign where
Queen Victoria could be shown to
have favored war or to have encouraged those anxious for war.
"We ewe to Queen Victoria," said
Lord Esher, "thc reinstatement of
tlio monorchia! princililo in the ryes
of all grave and curnrst men. I have
bud exceptional opportunity lor examining at first, hand the llll't'i* history of her reign,,hut I find no trice
of any gravo mistake cn.imiiiteil 'iiy
