that all the work done on the streot
during thu week had beon tho cleaning out of tho drain holo at Bick-;
lo's corner. ■ i
Aid, Brown, as a member of the
Street Committee, reported that he
had made a tour of the streets on
Saturday. He had been struck with
tho fact that all the streets in town
were in a hotter stnto than those in
tho West Ward. Second Avenuo, Kitchener and Warren Streets were all
in a doplorablo condition. Evory resident they met on that section was
asking when anything was goinp to
bo done. Around John Tim's placo
and lip past Fagan's wanted attending to In tho worst way, and ho
would liko tho Council to start at
onco and got something done. Thoro
were somo lots belonging, to Mr. Kitchen, of Nnnalmo, along First Avenue, which wero eyesores. If ever
there was a filthy hole in this world
thore was ono there. Tt should be
drained ut onco, and ho moved that
tho Council should undertake to do
the work ho had outlined at onco.
Mayor Nicholson pointed out that
thoro wns not money enough to commence tho whole of this week. They
could borrow tho money, and ho hud
Btigircstcd that it be dono, so thnt
thoy cpuld make a sturt with tho
wholo of their street improvements
by -April.
Aid Haworth remarked thnt to fix
(who could give th-j people fnirwt.ru-
reportod ing.
Mayor Nicholson thought this the
bost thing to do. Constable Callander could givo thmu all fair.warning.
Aid. Matheson said that thc majority of;tho people had the idea
that they could turn thoir sewerage
on to tho streets, und talking to
thom was no good. They would nevor remedy tho evil until they mode
an example. They would nover chock
the abuse until they fined some offender. So soon us the peoplo woro
shown that tho Council was in earnest the conditions would bo altered.
Mention was then' mude of the com
plaint preferred to.tho Council some
time ago by Mr. McMurtrie as to
dirty wator from Capt. Collister's
houses on Ontucre at root running over his property. Aid. Matheson said
ho Imd beon along that way and had

Mayor Nicholson said he had, and
ho thought tho matter should .>o at*

Counctt had been troubled with tho
sumo thing. Hc thought tho people
should bo hauled up for it.
Aid. Campbell suid ho hud met Mr.
Miles, Onpt. Collator's agent, as ho
was going to Victoria, and had mentioned tho matter to him. Mr. Milos
replied that he would be up shortly
and would attend to it.

ont Socialist thut three attempts to
carry on u co-operntivo store in Nu-
iminio had been falluros owing to the
untrustworthlness of the Socialists
In churge of tho business. It is true
there has been three attempts to carry on such a store In Nanaimo, hut
as to the political opinions of the
various parties having churge of the
business, Mr. McMillan is singularly
Tho first Nanaimo Co-oporatlvo
store, after running with scenting
grout success for several years, toppled over liko a houso of cards,
swallowing in tho wreck overy dollar
of the savings of muny workingmon.
Some of these men, who lost us high
ns $800 In the smash, are todny useful members of tho Sociulist Party.
For Mr, McMillan's lnforiuntion, I
may add thut just before this institution broko, the books hurl bcon auditor! and everything reported sound
und safe. Mr. Itulpli Smith was one
of tho auditors. This store wns out
of existence some yours before there
were any Socialists in British Columbia.
Tho second store came to ils finish
under the lnnnagemont of Mr. Hugh
Aitken. At no time hud uny member of tho Sociulist Pnrty tho remotest connection therewith.
Tbo last store wus from start to
finish under the munugement of Messrs. W. Nenvo und W, II. Kelly. Both
of these gentlemen wero, und are active members of thu Liboral party.
Such is tho brief history of the cooperative store movement lit Nunuimo, Prom start to finish it hus
boon in tho bunds of mon who were
Liberals, and, in the majority of
cases, church members, also.
Believing that the vo -operative
store movement under prosout conditions docs not necessarily benefit tho
working class, and, further, that the
abolition of tho wago system cannot
be reached by any extension, or evo-
lutlon of this movement, I have never paid any particular study to those
Nanaimo failures.
In conclusion, lot mc say that I
fail to understand how Mr, McMlr*
lun's informnnt can claim to bo a
Socialist. Tho Party spirit Is sufficiently vigorous in most of us , to
cause us to forgot, to miulmiw, the
actual failing uf our party.   In  this
quiring a provisional lease of tho
land in question, li" they secure the
uso of this land, the Club will erect
u proper building and put inono of
tho finest nnd most up-to-ilate traps.

Champion   Seattle   Team Will Play
Local Eleven on Sports
According to Wednesday's Herald,
the Thistles, of Scuttle are expected
to pluy in Nunuimo on Saturday
afternoon. Mr. Simpson has been
expected to hear from the Thistle
Secretary for some time but had had
no word from Seattle up to last
night. However, it can bo tnken for
grunted thnt if tho Thistles are in
Nanaimo on Saturday, they will be
here on Sunday afternoon.
Their visit over here is tho result
of the game the locnls played them
in Seattle Inst month. It was understood thon that the Thistles
would pay a return .visit und Mr.
Simpson wrote suggesting Saturday
us a vacant date for Nanaimo. Evidently that dato has been accepted,
nnd there will ulso bo a game here
ou the  Sunday.
The Thistles are good sports, and
are chumpions of Seattle, Unless they
are out of training and practice tbey
may be expected to put up a good
gume, uud local enthusiasts will be
given an opportunity of seeing bow
they piny ball on the other side.
Further particulars of the gome,
will appear in Saturday's issue.

June, und in spite of soma alarming reports that reached the city
during his sojourn in the early pan
ul tne winter, the recent report* oft
lus health had been more assuring,
and tho news of his death haa come
almost as a surprise. Y. eslorduy,
however, tho family of the Duke were
advised ol a relapse and Victor 0.
Cavendish, his nephew, and Lord
Montague went to Cannes and were
present when the end came.
The death of the Duke leaves a
gap in the public Ule of Great Britain, for, despite his withdrawal
from the Balfour ministry when Jo*.
Chamberlain launched his fiscal policy,, he still had a large following
In tho country and was president of
the Unionist Freo Trade League. Be
took on active part in the campaign
against tarill reform. He led ths
Liberals during the temporary retirement ot Gladstone In 1877, end
was offered hut refused the premiership after tho Midlothian campaign
of 1880. He was again oflered the
honor upon the defeat of home rule,
but aguin refused. _
The duke has no family, and tho
dukedom passes to his nephew Ur.
Cavendish, who married a daughter
uf Lord l.ansdowne.
The death of tho duke pluces a
bndge of tho Garter at tlie disposal
of King Edward, and this, in accordance with tho custom will be
returned to his majesty by the Successor to the title,
A number of public olhces ore also
made vacant by the death of the
Duke, notably the chancellorship of
Cambridge University, the lord-lieutenant of Derbyshire and ths provost

held for half n century. Tho duke

The Question of tho sewerage     ul
the    city and    its general sanitary
condition was. again raised at     tho
Council mooting on Monday evening,
The    subject is   getting rather old,
not to say stale,     lt has been more
ur loss before ull the successive councils, and comes up in precisely     the!
sums    shape    and form every time.
The whole point is that no attempt
has    bean made to enforce the sanitary by-laws of the city.     Unless s
warning or    a  notice,   is    forcibly
backed up it is always wasted. This
was tlie    point that   was taken by
Ald.Mattheson     on Monday evening,'
and the present temper of the council augurs the strict enforcement   ot
the by-laws,       Constable Callander
has a  list of the worst offenders and
most offensive places in town, and he
is instructed tc, give tbs persons   on
this list fair warning.     Should   his
notice    produce    no effect then the
council    will    take ateps to enforce
their bylaws through the medium of
a court of law.     lt is to be hoped
that an    example will not be necessary.        It should be clearly Understood that the whole object of    the
council is to preserve the health' bt

The Canadian Forestry Association
ia a national body having for it*
general object the promotion ol forestry in Canada. It now numbers
about 1,200 members, and all the
provinces and districts ot ths Dominion, as well as Newfoundland,
the United States, Great Britain and
several European countries being represented.
The association holds meetings annually in March, when topics bearing on the application of forestry under Canadian conditions are discussed, The most ambitious effort of
the Association so far has been' the
holding in January, 1908, of a large
and representative forestry conven
tlon at Ottawa.
The association is but eight years
old, having been organized in March,
1900, but has been remarkably successful, especially In securing the co-
operation of Canadian lumbermen,
several of whom have held the presidency of the association. Mr. E.
Stewart, late superintendent of forestry for the Dominion, is the founder of the association. The objects
of the association, as set forth In
Its constitution, Include tho advocat
Ing of Judicious methods of dealing
with Canada's forests and woodlands, the awakening! of public interest ln the consequences of reckless deforestation, tbs exploration of
tbe public domain and Its division
Into agricultural and non-agricultural land with the view of having the
latter set aside for permanent forest reserves, ths encouragement of
tree pleating and the spread of information on forests and forestry.
To aid In the last-named object,
the Association has established the
Canadian Forestry Journal, which
Is Issued quarterly and sent to all
members of ths association.

pay about three hundred thousand
dollars a year for Immigration print
ing alone, a large pert ol tbe money going to subsidize ths party
press. A vast army of party campaigners are discredited politicians
in the pay of the immigration department. How some of them earn
their money is shown by a return
which Mr. Clement, of West Kent,
has secured from tbe government.
Some time sgo Mr. Clement referred to James S. Wuugh, an active
party worker, who, in oil times. Is
paid 12 per head for locating Immigrant farm laborers with ths Kent
farmers. Mr. Clement charged that
this agent received bonuses on numerous Immigrants who did not remain with the man who hired them,
and on many who never went to
work at all. This charge was contradicted by Liberal members, tbe
department defending this agent and
others receiving like commissions for
like alleged services.
