The howling-and squealing that is?
goingon in Nanaimo. just .npw.provtie
the calibre of some would-be sports:
They aroriot prepared to accept the
^verdict of the only - Impartial judge;;
who can legally decide. • -. ■ . ; .
: In to-day5i issue - t>t-* the llcralil
imention is made qt , two decisions'
■ given in favor of Nanaimo. Take
'the first, Brown's case. Locksley.
'the judge, maintained and still maintains, "that Brown was not legally
registered, but as the V. I. secretary
had made the mistake, he decided
not -to i punish .Nanaimo.: I might
say thatVUranaimo's dalegaitea ah.)
lidmltted 'it!,' but they qrialiile'd thc
acknowledgement by saying tbat
others on both teams were in the
same box. But that doesnot make
Brown's case any'Jbett'er. '-•-' -
As for Hooper and Hurren, Locks-
ley told them in his ruling, what
they^ «ould get- when they went up
against the B. C. F. A, and hla predictions have been, fulfilled. - The
Nanaimo Herald says, "the who!-}
question was thoroughly thrashed
out." Exactly, by whom; by
both parties to the question? Oh,
no, just Nanaimo. There is a side
to this question' that has never been
before the public yet and there ate
a few sports in Nanaimo who will
thinktbere are two' sides to the question when the truth is known.
The sporting editor of the Free
Press stated at the meeting that he
had always fought for the principle
.that the .first, game, in the Island'
series was Ibr thc B. C. Cup. But
some bnc^ else' had said.no; arid of
course since...he.is no longer manager of thc Ladysmith team and hns
moved to Nanaimo, - ho' has- to pander to the crowd that stood on the
sidelines and shouted to. tho. Nanaimo players to put. tbe'boots, to their
opponents.
But, Mr. Editor, wc.Jinvc uotflnov-
imI to Nusaiino, wo are still doing
business at tho old .stand.
-As to thoV. I» conBtitution—Article 8, cluimc A, -snys that .mi club
shall put.a tram'on thc field for the
V. I; cliamtilonshlp, until' a fee of ten
[dollars Iiu3 been paid, ol which' sum
two-dollars and.jltty conts'shall be,
handed to the B. O, F..A. . That
seriiid to me, Mr. -Editor,. tl(at ' tlie
V. I. flssocialioii takes ,•;'• pniijs t;0,
make it knbwii that the 11. C. -F. A
.ia the ; parent! ' f*B«niiatioii. ' Bill

Hies; the B. 0. If. A;, 'the right to,
rule on V. I. matters and yet they,
appealed to tho B.' IX F. A; themselves on Tuesday last, Against the
N. I. decision in throwing Victoria
United out at the League. Now 11
the B. C. F. It. had reversed trie'V.
I." decision on. this • point would; Nanaimo have objected. In conclusion
Vet me say: NanAlmo has squealed
all along that .they did not know, ot
the riile barring Hooper and Hurrcn.
This is a deliberate falsehood. When
Nanaimo 'sent to Cumberland floopr
or'nr.d Hurten both answered'
they were not eligible, ha*

On Thursday evening the" liomo
lacrosse boys defeated the Extension
team with a scoro ot nine to nil.
Thc gamo was not much from tho
I'pcctutor'** point .of viewi the play
bcltBr-irntgcdt-rnjl SiMBltttil. The vls-
itore wore unfortunate m not having
the sefvices Of'sfcM pt their best
players and had to secure two ot the
Ladysmith boys betore the game
could be started. It is useless going
into the" details of tlie' game. Tho
score-, indicates fthe *play.' Attention
is directed to the rough pfay that
la 'crcepfrig info'tlie "game. Several
ofthe; boys -trotti-the pit heaS.'.tdw'n
have the .habit of taking the msn before the ball and It must be admitted that some of the local team are
not guiltless in'this respect.- ft is
hoped that this will npt be seen
again.' It "is better to be a little
careful in a game where-nothing;but
the score Is being played . for, than
to dnjure.oii opponent, perhhps' for
life.     ..
Nanaimo will be here in force for
a game on Sunday providing the
football team have not made, other
arrangements for a gaine oil that
date. The gaine iwill be called for
3 o'clock sharp ^nnd it is to,..bf)
hoped -that a'gppfl'' crowd wiirwlt;-
neas the game as it is practically
new here and deserves every encouragement. The boys, are practicing
hard for this and,future games and
are. trying to. do as much tor the

Very many citizens are wondering why the new post-
office has not been opened before now. Some months
have elapsed since the building was completed, and so
far as the general public is aware nothing is now being
done to make the office ready for occupancy.
Victoria will have a new theatre, and none too soon.
The present structure is out of date, so far as accommodation for the theatre-going public is concerned. As a
matter of fact, nothing has been done in the way of decorating the interior since the summer of 1892.
The management of the Prince Rupert Empire have
issued a 20-page special number of that paper, in which
,the bu3ine33 interests of the naw city are brought to the
attention of the outside world. This special number ton-
tains a vast amount of interesting reading matter, carefully prepared,, and will1 be welcDmad by all interested in
the past, present and future of Prince Rupert.
If the city council do33 not hear from the smelter company next Monday nia:ht with regard to the proposal to
supply current for the lighting ofthe city, that body
should at once advertise for tenders for the installation, of
a plant tp be owned by the municipality. A great deal of
valuable time is being lost in responding to the sentiment
of the ratepayers as expressed by the ballot." It is now
almost midsummer, and something should be done at
once if we are to have electric light this year.
If the enthusiasm manifested at the meeting on Wed
nesday evening is to be regarded as a reflection of the
patriotic sentiment of the citizen? generally, the observance of the national holiday this year should eclipse all
former celebrations in Ladysmith. On July 1st, 1867, the
new Dominion of Canada was born, and on the first day
of July in each succeeding year Canadians have honored
the event of national existence by observances best Adopted to national festivals. In Ladysmith, the celebration
.will take the usual forms of sports and events that
contribute towards the development of a healthy patriotic sentiment. ' ■

VANCOUVER
Real Estate Profits
If you lived in Vancouver you would hear every day stories of men making huge profits from a small
investment in Real Estate.
_ It is simply a repetition of the history of all great Cities in their growing period. Seattle, San Francisco, Spokane, Chicago, Milwaukee, Denver and a hundred other cities in tne United States as well as
our own Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg and now Vancouver have made and continue to make great wealth
for those who invest in suburban property that is as sure to increase in value as it is true that to-day
followed yesterday. There is in Vancouuer to-day a good deal of suburban property that will double
and treble in value within the next two or three years.
The City of Vancouver will double in population within the next five years according to the most conservative estimates, and with such rapid growth going on, it takes no prophet to foretell that a wise
investment NOW will not only be perfectly safe but will also yield very large profits.
If you will look at the location of
the black triangular shaped p'eee in
the accompanying map you will see
that it is favorably located as to
street car lines.    * ,
If you were on the property and
could see its beautiful location as to
view, etc., you would feel as I did
when I first visited "Cedar Cottage
Park". D. L. 393, that it was the
most f avnrablv situated piece of land
to be had for the price or double the
price in fact, near the City of Vancouver.
"Cedar Cottage Park" cannot f.ail
to become very valuable property in
the near future and therefore I would
advise you to buy as many lots as you
can in this sub-division.
Lots in "Cedar Cottage Park" are
sold on very easy terms, so easy
in fact, that any wage-earner in
Ladysmith may pay for at least
one lot from his monthly earnings.
Come to my office for a map and
learn fuller particulars as to prices,

There arc no old maids nowadays.
There are plenty ol bachelor girls
and bachelor women—gay and independent, cynical or superior, accusing to their temperament and environment. Loving and sentimental,
they are doubtless also; but this is
not on the surface. The average—
and there are exceptions—bachelor
woman pretends to make fun of sentiment, even If she does not actual-
take the loss of a doll, or curtail
Ing cf"pleasure. But we are, alas'
not like, children in the way we take
our minor pleasures. The little ones
take the small pleasures of life with
a keen enjoyment we should do well
to copy. They live In the present
both- in joy and in sorrow. We
grown-ups only belittle our joys and
en'.arge our sorrows. I remember
condoling with a very cheery woman
ol my acquaintance on some passing
but rather serious worry, because I
always feel that if there is a way
into trouble there must bo a way
out." A wise thought this—and one
to be remembered evCn amid a possible sea of small troubles.

And now for my list. I counted
twenty-one couples in just under five
minutes and I daresay I could
think of as many more if I were to' this time of the year than in the
look arousd and think" a'jout the peo-t cold and dreary weather. Who can
pie I know are happy. There is no worry over trifles now the almond
mistaking a happy couple if you are trees have commenced to bloom and
happily married yourself. There is the nightingale is heard at midnight

word that betokens mutual under-. self-centred man or woman who can-

Another "Sunshine' Feature
This Is an entirely new idea, and will espc
daily Interest people who reside in natural
gas districts. The gas ring takes tbe place
of the lower Sunshine fire-pot, thus making
it possible to burn gas in your furnace without
inconvenience. Such is not possible in a
furnace where the ordinary gas log is inserted;
for, should the gas give out, a coal or wood
fire could not be started until the gas pipes
were disconnected.
To provide against sweating in the summer
time, Sunshine Furnace is equipped with a
nickelled steel radiator and dome. All
bolts and rivets are nickelled, all rods
copper-plated. This special treatment, besides meaning quicker and greater radiation
from the radiator and dome than cold chill
iron could possibly give, acts as protection
for the bolts, rivets and rods from inroads of
gas, When cast iron comes in contact with
our nickelled steel it is coated with our special
Anti-Rust treatment, which prevents the
slightest possibility of rust commencing
anywhere in Sunshine Furnace.

If all goes well thero will be shown
ln the autumn, probably at tbe Albert Hall, London, a seies of tableaux modelled In wax and with lighting and scenic effects, Illustrating the

At first sight.it would appear tbat
waxworks r.re scarcely a proper medium tor reproducing these tremendous

would give offence to a countless

The Duke of Argyll, who stated the
other day that he ha-i tbe reputation
ot being one ot the worst-dressed
men in London, has more than atoned for his sartorial deficiencies by
bis cleverness. He is one ot the
most versatile ot noblemen, and bad
he not been a duke, he would still
be Iamous as a man of letters. Besides his two volumes of memoirs,
entitled "Passages from the Past,"
be has written the libretto ol an
opera, "Diarmld," and it is said
that after its production at Covent
Garden Theatre be told some friends
that "there are more where tbat
came from, il they should be required." He has also proved himself a
poet ol more than average merit,
and wrot* an Ode tor the opening ot
the Franco-British Exhibition, besides many other poems. Some idea
ol the' Duke's popularity ln Scotland may be gained Irom the following little story. When he married
Quean Victoria's daughter, an old Call and in them

This  seemed   a good   opportunity of  modern business.
Mr. Rockefeller has some useful ad-
us eager to learn how tho masters

In bis latest book, Random Reminiscences ot men and Events (.Heine

mueb to say  about thc things and Ior me (says Mr. Rockefeller). I had

saved up $700. or $800, but where to
get the rest was a problem. I talked the matter over with ray lather,
of the numerous anecdotes which it who <-uld nic that .he had always in
contains. Mr. Roekctcllcr.s business
imsUnct began in bis nursery days,
and we learn that in his early buy-
hood ho kept a little book "containing my receipts and expenditures, us
well ns an account of small sums
that I wns taught to.give uway rcg-
larly." The millionaire began making money when ho was seven or
eight years old. He was the owner
of some turkeys, which he sold in
'business-like fashion." His receipts were all profit, und "his records were kept as carefully as he
mew how." "To this day," says
Mr. Rockefeller, "I enjoy tho sight
of a flock of turkeys, and never miss
an opportunity of studying them."
At the age of sixteen Mr. Rockefeller got his flrst job, and the remarkable thing about it, considering hia
business instinct, was that he was
engaged without a word about pay
passing between him and his employers. The name of the firm was Hewitt and Tuttle, and during his flrst
three months young Rockfeller made
fifty dollars. After learning all tbat
there was to be   learhed with this
tended to give $1000 to each of his
children when they reached twenty-
one, Ho said that if I wished to receive my share at once, instead of
waitiug, ho would advance it to mo,
and I could pay interest upon the
sum until I was twenty-ono. "Dut,
John," he added, "tho rato is ten.
. . ."• As I needed tho money for
thc partnership, I gludly accepted
my father's ofter, and so began business as tho junior partner ot tho
now firm, which wus called Clark
and Rockefeller.
It would seem from this account,
that "John D's" business instinct
is inherited.
All through his career, Mr. Rockefeller eeoms to have had a wonderful power of making people trust
him, and'he could borrow money to
aid him in his business schemes without any trouble. Shortly after entering into partnership with Mr.
Clark he borrowed another $2000
from a bank president, and, says he,
"I felt that now I was a man of
importance in the community." Pro-
vice to give the would-bo Croesus.
If you aim for a large, broad-
guaged success (he says), do not begin your business career, whether
you sell your labor or are an Independent producer, with tho idea ol
gottlng from tho world, by hook or
by crook, all yon can, In thc choice
of your profession or your business
employment, lot your first thought
be: Where can I fit. in so that I may
bo most effective in the work of tho
world? . . Enter llfo In such a
spirit, choose your vocation in lhat
way, and you havo taken the flrst
step on tho highest road to success.
Investigation will show that tho
groat fortunes which have been made
in this country, nud thc samo Ik

The Economist of London, England, the leading financial paper ol
the world, concludes a long editorial explanation of the British budget as follows'
"From a desire to make the financial situation absolutely clear to our
renders, wo have already run to excessive length, and in any case wc
should not lie prepared at very short
notice to express definite judgments
upon u scheme that is not only bold
and umbitious, but of necessity in
3omc of its aspects difllcuit^and complicated. That it will provoke great
resentment mid indignation on the
purl ol lliose who induced Iho house,
ol lords to throw out tho licensing
bill is cortuin, Tobacco smokers
may fume ut a perceptible addition
tc the cost ol their fuel; but the
humbler sort can reflect, us ihey
smoke, each according to his individual taste In political expenditure,
that they arc contributing cither to
the multiplication of Dreadnoughts,
or to a provision of old ago pensions. The enhanced cost ol spirits
may fairly be regarded as an excellent thing both for thc additional
revenue it produces, and, still more,
for the effect It may have in moderating indulgonco in tho most noxious and fatal of all intoxicants. It
is dram-drinking far more than beer-
drinking that fills our jails, our asylums, and our workhouses. Wo have
uo space for a minute examination
of the license duty scales, but we
are convinced that Justice and public policy alike make it deeirable
that large drinking shops should pay
in the same proportion as small
ones for thc monopoly granted to
them by the state.
"The motorists have every reason i Mr. Lloyd and Mr. Henry George as
to thank Mr. Lloyd George for letting them off so lightly and for giving them Much a har.dsome return
for their modest contribution. The
upward rovlsion of the estate duties
appears to have been conceived in a
careful nnd equitable spirit. The
provisions as regards stamps arc
certainly Ingenious, nnd in view of
thc recent demonstration ol city
men at the Guildhall, wc hardly
think that tho principle underlying
these contributions will be seriously
attacked, though criticism and examination mny suggest adjustment
and  modification.
"Tlio additions to tho Income lux
are probably less than wore expected. Wc should have thought somo
reduction In tho limit of exemption
would have bocn hotter than the In
crease from one shilling to one shilling ,f wo pence on small unearned Incomes. Tho new abatcmont In re
sped fof \ children under sixteen
years of ago will bo generally welcomed. The long expected supertax
is reasonably simple, and Is less
than     tho Socialist   hoped or   tho
one and the same person. But the
great feature of the budget, and the
feature which we hope and trust
will ultimately prove medicinal and
healing, is the fact that without any
disguise or imposture, Mr. Lloyd
George has promptly and decisively
interpreted national expenditure in
terms of national taxation. For a
long time wo have been pleading for
economy, and pointing out to more
or loss deaf cars thc perils ol public extravagance. All classes of thc
nation will now be made aware of
what has happened since tbo South
Africnn war. They will all now be
able to doclde for themselves whether the new scale ol expenditure
nndtaxutlon is what they want, II
it Is not, they will have to look for
repentance among tho brilliant and
ingenious, but not very frugal,
statcsinon who sit facing one anoth
cr on the front benches of tbe house
of commons."

Phehistorle relics of exceptional interest have lately been discovered at
Fort Frances, Ontario, proving beyond doubt that at some time prior

Miners'Licenses
Expire on 31st
Antiquarians searching tho ruins of
Egyp. uavo found similar copper
weapons' , crcd aS these are, but
ns to the process of hardening, nothing is known.  It is ono ,of thc lost
nrts.   Thero is a possibility that   a before midnight on May 31

tish Columbia to be continued for department of mines that the free

lisation.    For yoars paBt there ha™, wamlormg foumi their homo hero." Tho'There 1b always a chance it is
'been evidences of this discovered from
time to time in tbo mounds along thf
Rainy river and lakes of that district, and the latter has been the sub"
ject ol much research. This latest
discovery has given an added impetus to the' question.
While men engaged on the.Wg power
dam were excavating end cjearing
r.way rock and debris in the old
channel of the river, whence water
had been diverted "for the construction of,the ,dam, a treasure trove of
relics* was uncovered. In a pot hole
in the river bed a hollow worn by
the action of small stones on the
softer material of the native rock,
was found a number of weapons and
artieles of pure copper, arrowheads,
spearheads, fishhooks, rings, bands,
tomahawks and ornaments, all as
bright as when turned out by their
manufacturers. \
The.specimens ,found were fashioned
skilfully and neatly, and indicated
great taste and no small artistic
ability onvthe part of the race who
fashioned -them. The fact that some
of the articles were hardened or tempered to give a cutting edge like
steel, showed that tho long lost art
of tempering copper had been known
tg that race,
Several theories have been advanc
ed but the one which has gained most
general belief is tbat some prehistor
ic race, ante-dating tho moundbuild
crs or co-existent with that peculiar
people, must have lived in Rainy
river district. How these articles
-got Where / they were found is an
even greater mystery, the solution
of which is equally a matter of theory. Perhaps a band of warriors returning from a raid on a neighboring tribe, or a successful battle in
a race war, were bringing back n
sack of weapons captured from tbelr
enemies. Through some mischance
their canoe was swept over tho falls,
and thc sack found lodging in, a hollow at the foot, where ithas lain
since, the sack rotting away with tho
action of time and water. There the
weapons had lain bidden till tbe
white man of the twentieth century
had diverted tbe channel and uncovered the relics.

He Arrested
Jas. J. Jeffries has received a letter from Hugh Mcintosh, the Aus
tralian fight promoter, who is in
England, asking him to refrain from
closing a match with Jack Johnson
for the world's championship without first giving him an opportunity
to bid for tho fight. Jeffries expressed the opinion tbat Mcintosh wanted them to fight in Australia or England. When Jeffries signs articles lto
fight the negro he figures he can
make just as much money battling
in America as he can in a foreign
clime, and asserts that the battle
must take place in this country.
Jeffries continues his strenuous training every morning. On Tuesday he
organized a team composed ol Comis-
key's utility men and played a nine: to cancci
organized by James J. Corbett. Jeffries played first base and Corbett
pltchedj'and played thc outfield. Jeff's''
toam won.
A New York dispatch of May 2G; rangements had been made to provide tables for   the    negro and bis
party.
It is well known that if Johnson
says: Is Jack Johnson afraid to
meet Sam Longford? This was the
subject for much discussion when it
became known that the black champion did not sail for England on
the North Gorman Lloyd liner Kaiser Wllhclnu Dor Crosso when she,
cleared to-day. Though Johnson's
passage bad been booked for many

night And for many moons it has
been Intimated that Johnson nmz 30
stomach for such a clash.
Johnson declared to-day that his
reason for abandoning the trip lay
in, thc fact that a six-round bout
with Jim Corbott is being arranged
by l'hiladclphia promoters and thnt
ho would try to postpone the Kct-
chol match, scheduled for October 1,
In order to give him moro time to

The tragic death ot Lieutenant-
colonel Thos. Turnbnll, formerly of
the Montreal Carrlson artillery, ln
Ottawa the other day, has recalled
an  incident  which    took   place in
June, 1885 when that regiment was
s
on its way home from the northwest
rebellion to   Montreal. The regiment
embarked at Port Arthur upon the
C. PR. steamship Manitoba,   along
with the Queen's   Own,   the -Royal
Grenadiers and the   Ottawa   Sharpshooters.   The boys had had a good
timo ln Winnipeg   for the* previous
few days, and there were a number
of sore heads among   them,  as   Is
natural when a   body    of men who
have bcon debarred trom tho teppta-
tions of city jlifc for weeks or months
nre again thrown into thc vortex of
metropolitan life.    The   consequence
wns tbat immediately upon the- embarkation of thc troops,   the   commanding   officers   detailed a   sentry
Irom cuch of the regiments to keep
i:uard upon the bar. with orders to
each not to admit, nny member   ol
his regiment without orders trom thc
officer ol the day.   Tbe sentry poBt-
cd for. the Garrison artillery was a
youni: chap who is now nn Ottawa
newspaper man and ho look his orders very literally,  for. when Major
Turnbnll, ns he was then, camo along
about midnight and wanted to   get a
drink, tho sentry told   him that he
could not bo admitted without nil order from the officer of tho day. The
major got very angry ut thit* literal
interpretation of orders, and calling
the sergeant of the guard had thc
sentry arrested for insulting an officer. A new sentry was posted and tbe
other spent the rest of the night In
the corner of the hold dignified by
the name of guard room.   Tbe next
morning there was a miniature court
martial and the sentry was exonerated oa the ground    that hit Inexperience had not taught htm that a
staff officer had the right to to anywhere he desired.
