Aftor due justice had boen done lo
the eatables, tho toast list was opened by tho Grand Master proposing
the King, which was musically honored.
Bro. Job Smith thon gave nn Instrumental solectlon in linishetl style.
Bro. E. Rowlands noxt sang an old

BASEBALL
GAME SUNDAY
Nino From Duncan Will Meet Locals
on Sports Ground.
There will bo anothor baseball
game on the Sports Ground on Sunday uftornoon. Tho boys _o far
hnvo had rather a trying experience,
and it at least says something for
thoir grit thnt thoy are still willing
to play the game. Tho fact that tlio
town hns not a stronger line i-i entirely duo tt) the little interest that
hns been taken in the game. It ls
up", to tho boys to get out and practice, nnd get themselves into \\ Inning form. So soon as over they
enn put up a respectable game they
will receive liberal support. Liko everybody else they must produce tho
goods before they can oxpoct nny
patrqnago.
Tho gamo on Sunday should prove
interesting enough ns the teams aro
fairly evenly matched. Manager Morrison insists upon all tho boys getting out to practice. A charge of
25 cents ■will bo made at the gate,
Indies freo.

Mayor Nicholson said Hint in going ovor tho by-lnw he hnd found

thought it should embody.
Aid. Muthoson suid tho clause
about which ho pared most had been
struck out. His mnin object in introducing tho by-law hail been to impose a fee on those pooplo who had
been trading in the transfer of licenses. Ho did not see that tlie
clause invalidated the by-lnw for
quite a number of the by-laws by
which the city was governed contained clauses which strictly regarded
belonged properly to revenue. Personally he did not caro now what
became of thc by-lnw.
Aid. Cnmpboll also did not see

ON SATURDAY
Conservatives   Will   Meet in   Opera
House to Nominate Candidate.
Saturday should see a Conserva-
■Mj nominated for this constituency.
No ono will deny that it is high
timo tho nomination was made. Who
ovor it is who receives tbe vote of
the convention on Saturday, he has
a stiff, up-hill fight in front oi him.
Smith has been in tho Hold for years
and is known to tho majority of the
electorate from Nofthfield to Esgul-
tnait. Tho same can be said for
Mr.  Hawthornthwaite.
The Conservative candidate in this
respect win have a greet deal of
leeway to make up, There will also
be a lot of preliminary work to do.
It Is to bo expected therefore that
the convention which will be held in
tlio opera house on Saturday will
nuike unanimous choice of a candidate who will command the united
support of every section of the party. The times certainly wear an
auspicious air for Conservatism, and
every point of difference should be
sunk in tho effort to forward the
cause. There must bo active, harmonious co-operntion, energetic and
unceasing activity in all the vnrious
branches nf electioneering.
The chances of success have never
been brighter, nnd a mnn is a traitor to his convictions who Is not
roiidy nnd willing to subordinate personal consideration to the success of
the pnrty.
It is to be hoped that a strong
candidate, representing the unanimous choice of the party, will be nominated nt tho convention on Saturday.

THE WEEKLY OTTAWA LETTER.
Ottawa, June 27.
Senator Ferguson has mado tho
discovery that Sir Richard Cartwright, formor Finance Minister,
wns not told what arrangements tho
Govornmont made Inst year for spo-
cial advances to the banks. On tho
2nd of December, Sir Richard spoke
in tho Somite on the address, dealing particularly with tho financial
situation. Some newspapers .... I pro
posed that the rule requiring dollar
for dollar ia gold to be held -n the
Treasury for nil additional tuta? issued should be relaxed. Against this
doctrine. Sir Richard vehemently
protested. Ho said, among other
things :
"You can relieve the Govornmont
from the necessity of holding dollar
for dollar of thc legal tenders vhich
they hand to the banks. I do not
think it would be a polite thing."
I am in favor of retaining our
reserve ns we hnve always hnd it,
nnd thnt is foliar for dollar aftor we
have made reasonable provision 'or
our circulation."
Ho Was Not Notified.
At tho vory moment when Sir Rich
'd mndo this statement, the Government of which he is a member,
wns doing the very thing that ho declared should not bo dono, Mr. Fielding has stated thnt It wns issuing
Sf>,300,00(1 ndditionul notos and
lending them to the banks without
ndding n dollar of gold to tho reserve. Tho strange thing is that so
high a financial suthorlty as Sir
Richard Cartwright should have
known nothing about it. This is ono
of thc mnny things which show that
hnlf the ministers do not know whnt
the other half aro doing, and that
tho old-fnshinned Liberals who trust
to tho watchfulness of Sir Richard
Cartwright and mlnistors of his
type to prevent recklessness, extrn-
vagonco nnd grn ft. nro betrayed. As
a mntter of fnct, though Mr. Fielding seems to hnvo kopt this back,
tho Government hnndod out moro
gold than notos, nnd thero was not
only a reduction In tho reserve relative to the noto issue, but of the ac-

A QUESTION OF HEALTH.
It ia not only possiblo, but very
probuble that the ordor issued by
the Medical Officer on Saturday for
the closing and filling up of the wolls
.within the city limits will bo regarded by not a fow as an unnecessary
aud high-handed    act of oppression.
There arc many persons in the
town who profer well wator to that
suppllod by tho water-works company. In this hot woathor particularly, the water from tho well is always tho cooler and tastes the fresher of the two. But, granting all
that if thoso who have persisted in
the use of their wells, will give all
the circumstances fair consideration,
they cannot but admit that Pr.
Frosts' ordor is not only justifiable
but was absolutely forced upon him
by tho duties of his position. The
health of tho city imperatively demanded tho closing of the wells, and
tho medical officer had iio other
option than to issue the necessary
instruction.
The wells with fow exceptions are
very shallow. There may bo spring
water in a few instances, but by far
tho bigger majority of thom simply
collect surface water, Mose important oven than this ls Its hearing
upon the action of tho medical officer Is the fact that the wells are
sunk to hard-pan. From tho surface to this hard-pan there ls nothing but a gravelly sand through
•which any kind of wator can easily
percolate. Lastly tho hard-pan follows the grade and goneral contour
ol tho surface so that the course of
the flow of water underground can
ho traced almost as easily as that
aliovo ground. Thus you have wells
sunk to hnrd-pnn collecting surface
wator which flows frooly through an
open and pervious soil composed of
sand and gravel.
On tho top of all this you have ro
Beworago system. With such facts
ns we have already stated tho lull
and vital significance ol this circumstance will suroly bo readily recog-
nixed. All the dirty houso water is
splashed on to this gravelly soil ai.d
finda its way as easily to the hard-
pan as tho water from tho heavens.
'All kinds of refuse is to be found in
tho bark-alleys of our city and every
showor carries somo of it to tho percolating stronm from which tho wells
are fed. TJio very closets i-ont 'hute
their quota, nnd no sano person can
look all these circumstances in the
face and attempt to deny tho vory
grave and imminent menace to the
health of tho community which tlioy
constitute. An outbreak of typhoid
is scarcely to be wondered nt. It is
nothing short of a miracle that tho
city has not been scourged with
something Infinitely moro dangerous
and malignant than typhoid. Dr.
Frost's ordor was inevitable. It
ought to have boon Issued sooner. It
may perhaps work aome little temporary inconvenience to tho householders whom it afreets. Howovor,
theso latter will doubtless be ablo
to arrange terms with tho wator
works company, and meantime let it
not be forgotten or overlooked that
tho health of the city absolutely demands tho closing of thoso wolls. It
mny be that horo nnd thoro a woll
Is to be found tho wator ol which is
Iroo from contamination with sur-
faco mattor. Tho fact remains thnt
tho most of them got .ill their wator
from thc surface, nnd thut Inevitably the water Is contaminated with
all kinds of impurities containing all
manner, of dlsoaso bearing germs. In
short tho wolls always hung out a
throat of a vory serious opldomlc to
which tho man with the pure wator
la equally as liable as tho mnn with
the impure water once tho epidemic
has broken out. Heroin lies the
-whole point of the matter, a sufficient Justification in itself for the
order of tho medical officer. No com
munlty will    suffer   tho health and

SEATTLE, July 8— That the Puget Sound Navigation Co., will be
able to get a boat on the run between Victoria and Vancouvor direct in a few days is the statement of

ond time, being legally recorded.

to either confirm or deny tho statement, but admitted that ho would
have a boat on tho run very shortly

that the Km-iorur has already Instructed Marquis Katsura to lorm s

will not be made officially beforo
July 7th, and may be delayed until the arrival of Prince Ito Irom

The next cabinet will likely be

Government No- Longer Responsible.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier used to say
that under Liberal rule It was not
necessary to argiie that the country
•was prosperous, as the people knew
lt. But the Premier usually went on
to tell of increasing revenue, of industries working night and day, of
I abundant; onpital for Canadian Investment, low .Interest on the Canadian securities, the increasing number of Canadian banks and decreasing record of failures. Ministers are
now explaining that falling revenues,
decreased transportation earnings
paralysis of tho woollen Industry,
closing of Iron and steel plants,
scarce money and bank failures, are
all due to causes beyond Government control.
But the Govornmont Is responsible
for adversity moro than it was for
prosperity, since its prodigious extravagance, its withdrawal of monoy
from productive Industries hy increased taxation, and its protection
of publlc dlshonosty, havo assisted
to undermine tlio prosperous conditions.
Whon tho Premier next talks about X
banks ho will haVo to say that with- I mor wour
in a few years flvo have boon wreck-
ed. These are tho Bank ot Yarmouth, Ontorlo Bank, Sovereign
