CHRONICLE
With Which Is Amalgamated the Ladysmith Standard.
Vol. I.
Ladysmith, B. C, Wednesday, January 20, 1909.
No.
New Council Has
Knotty Problems.
Before tho city council was called
to order Monday night,' Mr. John
Stewart administered the octh of of-
' fue to the mayor and aldermen.
There were present: Mayor Nifchol-
scn, in the chair, and Aid. McKinnell, Haworeh, Brown, Carophcll,
Roberts and Matheson.
As the minutes of tho former meeting had been read at tlio last meeting ol the council, the first order ol
business was thc reading ol communications, ; ij ijiyu
The first communication was from
Wm. Brent, asking- for tuiMicr information regarding debentures.
Communication was received and
file!, and a suitable reply will be
sent to Mr. Brent.
Dr. Dan's wrote Teghrding a cla'ln
against tha cofincil for SW3 for now
elethes'to ta'.p. the place ol those
destroyed when he left quarantine.
Comminication was received and
filed.
Mr.il. R. Hindmarch wrote regarding some back accounts of the
Ladysmitli Standard.
'C'omnjunication was) received and
filed.
Returning Officer Stewart officially
notified the council of the result of
the mincipal elections.
Received and filed.
Mr. R. J. Trembath wrote regard-
i g the account ol Mrs.    Hutcheson
. and also an eccount of his own arising out ot the recent visitation   of
smallpox.
. The mayor did not believe that
these accounts should be paid, and
suggested that the council was being
imrosel upm.
These bills provoked considerable
discussion, and Mr. Trembath, who
was present, made a special plea for
the.payment ol Mis. Hutchison's l|jil.
She had been ordered to remain' at
his house, and the other nurses got
£5 a day.
Aid. Roberts thought that Mr.
Trembath should be assisted in some
.way. Ho was in the house from the
beginning and before »there was' an
isolation hospital. Mr. Trembath
had to payl everything .while others
had been provided with.a place where
they were taken care of during their
illness,- If the doctor were present
no doubt many misunderstandings
would lo cleared up.
Aid. Brown wanted to know why
all the sufferers from smallpox were
not isolated.
' Mayor Nicholson said it was under,
stood that so tar as.Mi. Trcmbath's
lajnlly were concerned, he had under-
s'.Ocd that' Mr. Trembath was prepared to look .utter them himself. Ho
was certainly entitled to the ljoard.ot
thc boy who was sent to his hcuse
during the,eptdemic.
'Aid. Haworth said it was just as
reasonable to pay Mrs. Hutcheson as
to pay the boy's board. Both should
be paid.
Aid. Campbell could not sea that
thc matter could bo finally settled until the return of the dector.
Aid. McKinnell believed that some
settlement should be effected to at
lust up tilt the time the isolation
hospital was ready tor occupancy.
The great question was whether or
not,th«re was an arrangement with
the medical health officer. Until the
return ot the doctor it would not be
well to settle matters. In the meantime, '. ho thought the best thing to
do would te to appoint a committee
to look Into the matter.
Mayor Nicholson drew attention to
thc fact that certain details with rc-
gr'rl to the expenses ot the epidemic
lad yet to lc arranged with thegow
e nment, and It would be well to
take a little time until all details
were properly e,rranged.
It was moved, seconded and car
ried that the bill be laid over until
the return ot thc doctor.
Hills aggregating $275.50 were, re-
ffricd to the finance committee to be
paid II tound correct.
A Communication was read (rem J.
K. Smith offering to withdraw his
resignation, providing the monthly
salary of fire chivf was increased to
S25 per month.-'
Aid. Haworth was of the opinion
that while at the early stages of
Ladysmith's history $10 per month
was enough, that the time had come
when tho salary should be increased.
Aid. Brown did not bel'iovic in pull
Ing down salaries, but. under existing
conditions he did not think it wise
to niakje increases in expenditures.   •
It was moved by Aid. McKinnell;
seconded, by Aid. Matheson, and carried, that Mr. J. E. Smith's resignation as fire chid 'oe accepted, and
that the council advertise for applicants for the position. ^
The question ot tho city clerk's
resignation then came up. His Worship stated that he had interviewed
Mr. Stewart during the day, and
that that gentleman had declined ro
considering his resignation. It was
not a question _of salary, it was simply a case of having, too much other
work.
It was therefore moved, seconded
and carried, that Mr. Stewart's resignation be accepted, and that an
advertisement be inserted in thc local
press calling lor applicants tor thc
position..     -. 1
It is understood that the new city
clerk will have to devote his whole
time to the office and likewise perform the duties of assessor and collector.
Under the head of new business, the
mayorGsaid that as tlie old council
had been returned he would continue
the same men on committees lis last
year. They had all gotten along well
l..st year, and no. doubt would cunt in <
ui- to do so.
The mayor drew attention to the
tact that thc council was shoit an
alderman. It was within the power
ot the council to fill the vacancy,
and he would like the Citizens'
League to submit a name fur the
consideration ot thc council.
Other aldermen expressed themselves in the same way, and the
vouncil, alter deciding to call a special meeting at thc city hall Tuesday
to consider .matters affecting the
city's interests,, adjourned.
The Foley Slanden
Fight at Nanaimo
The decision in the fight bettveen
Kid Foley and Rod Standen at Nanaimo last Saturday night docs not
appear to have given general satisfaction, nor yet does it appear to
have been in accordance, with the report ot the meeting. No doubt the
rcteiec intended to be lair, but he
certainly did not understand thc
rules under which the match had^cc.1
nri»ii/ed. So far as leading was
concerned both men evened up, but
St anden's. blows lacked steam and at
no time was Foley in danger. On
the other hand, Foley /knocked Standen down, and those who witnessed
the fight arc emphatic in the statement that the latter was dazed, In
the last round Foley wan the) aggressor, and Standen was merely sparring
for - time. Thc worst Foley could
have expected was a draw, but he

Another slide occurred on thc E.

large block of clay and gravel rom
thq cliffs in the vicinity of the Gold-
stream, fell piling on the track three
or four feet high. As scon as thc
i.ews was received at Victoria ar^ang
ot workmen'was despatched to the
scene The line was cleared st, midnight so that to-day's freight and
passenger traffic was not intxrferrtd
with.
There was a special meeting ot the
Ladysmith city council last evening,
when matte.s affecting tne city
were discussed in an informal manner. The principal questions were
the finances of the city and the best
means of meeting present liabilities.
As the year will be an .active,one so
far as municipal improvements arc
concerned, it is felt that the council
should have considerably more money
at its disposal.
It is likely that Ladysmith B |

Of Officers
Recovered Mail from
Wrecked Car
Vancouver, January 18.-AH the mail, ordinary and
regstered, which went into the Fraser river at Sailor
Bay bluff last Friday at noon when the C. P. R. westbound express left the track, has reached Vancouver, and
out of the entire consignment of 142 pieces of registered
matter 139 piece3 have been accounted for, and the other
three parcels will doubtless be identified when the sorting
is completed, and the records all gone through.
There were sixty sacks of ordinary mail matter
which went into the river, and all these were recovered.
On arrival in Vancouver this mail was sorted,, and the
sacks destined for Victoria, New Westminster, Ladysmith and Nanaimo forwarded. The Vancouver mail is
now being dried out at the postoffice, and as soon as it
can be handled will be delivered. Of course all the letters
were soaked with water, but all the addresses will be deciphered when the paper dries.
The car which contained the mail was still in the river
on Saturday when Mr. J. B. Allan, assistant to Mr. J.
0. MacLeod, superintendant of (the railway mail service,
started the work of recovering the sacks.
Trainmaster Prenter of the C. P, R. is to-day at the
scene of the wreck; clearing up the debris and hauling
the derailed cars up the bank wjth the aid of a Lidger-
wood car to positions where they can be picked up by a
wrecking crane now on the way to the scene from Three
Valley lake, where it was at work last week recovering
the freight cars which were thrown off the track by a
slide at that point early in the week.

being an important one owing to the
magnitude of the work and size of

A number ol speeches paying tribute to thc work of the officers and
the order in general brought a very
pleasant evening to an end.

says Monday's Free Press, speaking
of the remaining matches of the Pacific Coast League, "thecup and title would 'be theirs." Is not thc Frcq

in his supposition? Should Nanaimo
win their total would be ten points.
Ladysmith now has (i, but suppose

and Vancouver; would they not be

poss.ijla such may be the case, and it
so the uid rivals would have to play
a deciding game.

boys must keep good order or get

place to-morrow night, when the fol-
lowiiiT; pictures will he presented: "A

song will be "Monkeyland."
Ladysmith Has a
Picture Show
At last Ladysmith has a picture
show, and while it has taken some
time to get round to it, all must
confess that the picture machine is
producing the best effects. To
Peevor & Co., belong the credit of
installing thc first permanent picture
show in Ladysmith and the patronage bestowed so far upon the hew
house of entertainment seems to indicate that the enterprise will be a
financial success. There AM lie a
change of programme, twice a week,
and the firm has left a standing order for die deli.lcry of the latest
films. A very pleasing feature ot
the evening's programme is thc illustrated song by Mr. Joseph Sanderson. Ho receives,a goodround ot frp-
|tlnus3 at tho end of his songs. Thc
house is comfortable and tne manage-,
mrnt is determined that it will bo

New Route for
C. N. Railway
Vancouver, Jan. 20. — Vancouver
will be the Pacific coast terminus ot
the Canadhn Northern Railway.
Messrs. Mackenzie and Mann have filed a route map with the Railway
Commission at Ottawa. This fully
indicates that they have abandoned
tbe idea of constructing a main line
in an easterly and westerly direction
through the central portion ot Brit-
i.-:h Colunliiia, Irom Yellow Head
Pass at the Summit of the Rockies,
to Bella C'ooia, with a branch line
running north and south from a point*
on the main line to this city. Instead they will build a main line
running direct in a southwesterly di- -
rection frcm th; Yellow Head Pass
to tidewater on Burrard Inlet. The
route, according to thc route filed,
is t«/ a system ot waterways, almost a
hundecd mii.:s long to the North
th mi; son river, and thence down
that river to its junction with the
South Thompson river at Kamloops.
Thence the line will follow the main
Thompson river, taking the opposite
bank to that occupied by the Canadian Pacific Railway, to its confluence with the Fraser at Lytton.
From this last mentioned point the
road will parallel theCanadian Pacific
on the ;amo side ot the Fraser [or a
considerable distance before proceeding te Vancouver by the Lillooet and
Ohilcolin country.
Al a recent, public hearing More
tlie Railway Commission it transpir.
ed that the proposed railway will 'iie
built under a charter secured irom
tho Dominion parliament last session*
for a subsidary company known as
the Edmonton, Yukon and Pacific
Railway Company. Although decision was reserved by the railway,
board, it is understood that tho
route will be approved, as no objections were made by the-legal representatives of the Canadian Pacific
and tlie Grand Trunk Prcific railways in attendance at the hearing.
The applicants on that occasion were
represented by Dona.d D. Mann, Wm.
Moore, secretary ol toe Edmonton,
Yukon and Pacific railway, and (Herald Ruel, legal adviser. The interests of the Canadian Pacific and the
Grand Truok Pacific Railways were
looked after respect'ifcly by E. W.

EDITORIAL COMMENT.
"Everything will boom on tho Island this year," said the representative of a well-known financial institution who" is in Ladysmitli this
week. This appears to be the opinion of those who are in tire best position to- form safe conclusions. Evidently the business men 0! Victoria
ate disposed to take an optimistic
view of the future, and for this reason they have made a start in forming an institution that should accomplish a great deal for the island in
the way of development. Iltt meeting next Friday at Victoria ot the
representatives of tho various hoards
i f trade will do much to advance tha
Island's progress, and Ladysmith
rm.st s.-e to it that her interests are
profcrly safeguarded at this lime.
John Wulitsohn, a well known mining man, says that Queen Charlotte
Islands is rich 'in coal as well as copper deposits. "This group will he
the gem of British Columbia,." he
observed in conversation with a newspaper man.
It lonl.'s as if there might be some
trouble in settling the accounts incurred in the recent, epidemic. Whila
many wi'.l agree with His Worship
Mayor Nicholson that the city's in-
tere~,ts must be protected, the feeling
will still intrude itself th.i,t the mat-
tir should be adjusted so that the
burden should be equally divided. To
many it will occur that tho best
means cl adjusting the difficulty
would be thc suggestion of Aid. McKinnell, for thc council to appoint a
committee to fully consider all the
expenses in connection wi'.h the epidemic. 1

was given to him, which would register every step he took.
All went well for a time. One

HARRY HUGHES
Fleet of toot was Hiawatha,
He could shoot an arrow Irom him.
And run forward with sucli swiftness
That the shaft would fall behind him.
Fleet of foot was also. Longboat,
Who could, beat Signor Dorando
From the land of macaroni,
From the land of organ-grinders,
From the land of sweet musicians,
Who adjust piano-organs
Just beneath our office window,
And tear oli'i thc Merry Widow,
Annie Laurie., Daisy Bell, and
Then the tuneful intermezzo—
From Mascagni's Rustic-ana—
All of these and many others  .
Pleasing with nerve destroyers
Rendered by the gents with ear-rings.
From the land of Sig. Dorando.
Fleet of foot was Mr. Longboat,
Who could train on Scotch and soJn,
(If there wasn't any soda
He could train on Scotch exclusive),
And in looting o'er the records
Made by Marathon performers,
llf.de ty.English, Dutch, Italian,
Made hy Yankee, Cireeki and Herman,
Made by T. Longboat's   ancestors,
We arrive at the conclusion,
That the great long-distan:e runners
From the days of Hiawatha
Down to those in last December,
Hadn't anything on Longboat.

The proposal to extend a farewell

ore which wi.l doubtless be warmly
approved; by thc public' generally and
especially by those who know Mr.
.Martin best. In, bis professional capacity no lawyer in the cointry is
held in higher esteem then is Mr.
Marl in. In his practice bis word is
as gotfd-as his-ben 1 nnd although be
is a strenuous fighter in legal prac
lice as' in politics, he always plays
fairly.
In. politics it is true ho has
many enemies. Joe Mar,in lies hit;
hard at friend and foe alike, but his
work has been a bcticfieial one to 1.0
country on the whole. He has stood
out agiainst corruption nnd graft, he
lias comhattcd the sectarian demands
cf the hcriarchy upon the Caoadian
public school system and he has
roundly denbrn.'cd those politicians
who lent themselves lo those designs,
Also ho has stoutly maintained thosi
principles of free trade he believes in.
Joseph Martin has never 'been a poj
11 Li 1 idol. His thoroughgoing com-'
liativcness and sense of duly have
always carried him- along lines other
than those ot gallery play, lie 'has
not sought popularity.

Should he enter politics in Britain,

Cannda in hand to extend to him
such prestige ns we can, for he has
played a prominent) part in Canadian
affairs and bis influence will doubtless
be exerted in Canada's interest when-

In the refiigcrator, wrap everything odorous, as lish, corned beef,
roast meat, highly seascn?d leftovers, in clean cloths wrung out of
cold water. The wet cloths not only
prevent odors but saw thinjs from
getting dry. Keep a set of largo
napkins made from Itour-saclc muslin
specially fjr this use. Fruit keeps
much tetter even in the refrippratcr,
if it is, wrapped in paraffin ptpcr.
To keep gowns of while silk, wool,
or crepe clean, rub them oner after
ca;h wearing with magnesia, and
hang away for a day or so. Then
lake down, brush carefully all over
with a sjft, Illicit brush—it will bring
away the magnesia, and ah.ng with
it all dust and grime. If all white
and light gowns are thus treated,
they may be worn almost indefinitely
without the trouble end cxpmse of
sending them lo be cleaned.

THE QUALITYHOUSE
Start the new year right and have your watch overhauled. Just think of it, the
balance of your watch makes about 18,000 vibrations per hour, for every hour of the
year; that it rotates on pivots only -05 millimeters in diameter, Or about the equal of a
good sited human hair, also that all tho oil it can retain for running purposes is about
the one one-thousandth of a drop.
Give tho watch a chance and have it thoroughly overhauled. Always go to th*
beat man, as cheap work on such delicate mechanism as that if a watch is always dear
in the long run, and usually causes ruin. We do all kinds of repairs, from the converting of the Key winder into a setm winder to tbe ordinary work of cleaning, Etc. Not •
but the best materials used. We have not only served the usual apprenticeship at our
trade, but have also had the advantage of a thorough study of the watch and scientific
mechanics, at the Canadian liorological Institute, acknowledged the best on the American Coutiuent, a place where every part of a watch is made hy hand under the direction
of experts. Now, is not one who has had this training, more capable of thoroughly Repairing your watch than o le who knows little or nothing about tho principles involved,
who }ust picked his trade up, as so many have. All we ask is a fair trial, Our prices
are correct, and the work fully guaranteed. We can make and repair any part of a
watoh from barrel to balance.
