Thoro is, according to tho Herald
to be no competition for tho B. 0,
Challenge Cup this year. At a
meeting- on April 21), held in tho
Grand Hotel, Nanaimo, it was decided that in caso only Ladysmith
ontered for tbe competition tho lirst
gamo would bo playod hero, and the
final In Nnnnimo. In the event of
a tio, the venue of the extra gamo
was to lie decided by drawing from
tho hat. At that mooting thoro
wero present .Messrs. II. Yates and
W. Graham for Nanaimo, and Messrs. ,1ns. Adam and R. R. Hind-
lnarch for ladysmith. Mr. R. Adam
prosified and Mr. Bergeron noted as
secretary. The motion carried by
lho casting vote of the chair.
It was also, agreed to oxtond the
time for receiving entries up to Wednesday, May 14, tho noxt mooting
boing llxed for tho evening of that
Messrs. Adam and Hindmarch
found it impossible to attend this
mooting, and indeed they did not see
very much necessity for putting
themselves to such inconvenience.
Thero had beon no news of outside
entries, aud it was safe to assume
that only the two local teams would
bo competing. Tlio conditions in
that cuso had already been agreed
upon nnd recorded on the minutes of
tho Association, so that thero was
nothing really to do but enter tho
team. That business ulso Messrs.
Adam nnd Hindmarch regarded as a
mere formality; Thoy hud given
practical assurance at the meeting
on tho 2Uth of April that their team
would compete, arid botwoon two
clubs, where sportsmanship rather
than technicalities is tho determining (actor In action, this ought to
huvo sulllced.
However, thoy decidod to wrilo the
president, Mr. Robt. Adam, and formally enter the team. They entered tho team upon the conditions o-
greed upon, and only upon thoso
conditions. Thoy also thought of
sending the S10, but decidod thnt it
was hardly necessary as botweon tho
two clubs. lino could always trust
tho other to pay Its foes.
Here is tho sequel ns told in Thursday morning's Herald:
"Thero will bo no competition for
tho B.C. Challenge Cup this year, ns
whon tho timo for receiving entrios
expired lust evening no teams had
declared tholr intention of pliryin?
Nanaimo for tho cup, which tho locals won lust year Irom Ladysmith,
Last evening a communication
was rocoivod from tlio Ladysmith'
Football Club stilting thoy would enter n teum provided that In cnso of
a tie. the place whero tho final
should be ployed would bo decided
by tho (lip .of a. coin, nnd on no
condition would thoy ontor a tonm
if tho final wns to bo ployod In Nanaimo.
The cup referred to In tlio opening
paragraph of this articlo was sub-
scribed by citizens of Nnnalmo, and
ono of the conditions under which
tho cup was glvon wos that In caso
of a tio tho final gamo must bo-
played In Nanaimo.
These were the some conditions undor which Ladysmith played last
your and mado no objection to, but
this yoar they think otherwise, nnd
so have not entered u team, which
nrlion loaves the cup la Nnnnimo for
.mother your at loast."
How Iho real facts stand with ro-
"iird to tbo string of misroproscnlu-
Llona contained in this articlo Standard readors can compare for thorn-
solves. Hero thoy nro in order:
Firsl, Ludysmith entered a   team.
Second, The conditions nskod for
by tho malinger were tho conditions
reguittrry adopted at tho previous
meoting of tlio Association.
Third, Tho manager nevor stnted
his loom would not play If tho final
were played In Nannimo. Tho llnal
might havo fallen to bo played there,
evon with tho draw. All that tho
local club wanted was that thoy
should havo an ouuul chance with
Nannimo as to whero lira gumo wus
Thore is another story aback of
all theso misrepresentations. Thoro
was no meoting 0n Wednesday night,
Tho chairman nnd Mr. Votes were
tho only two who put In nn uppoiir-
nnco. Tho president later vlsitod
the Herald ollico whero ho was Joln-
od by Mr, Ohns. Graham, who wus
representing the Nnnnimo club. Mr.
Grnhnin's lirst point wns to enquire
If Lndysmith had forwarded the en-
trunco monoy. Hero you have a
truo sporting query! Clearly tho
ladysmith club woro to bo tripped
till on a technicality. Thoro Is no
othor possiblo explanntlon to this
question. Mr. Qrnhnm had no right
to put It. Tho mooting, hnd thero
boon one, could havo tnken up Lhc
mutter, nnd tho lottor addressed to
the president would, with nny body
of sports, hnvo boon accepted as a
guarantee of our good faith In entering. As a mnttor of fact, Mr.
Onihum wonted to got awny from
the uncomfortablo and unsportsman
like ground of repudiating tho decision of a properly convened and
constituted meeting. He fnilod in
bis point.
Mr. Robt. Adam had our written
entrance in his pocket. He put
down ?10 to back it up. We wero
now entered, not only in tho nnmo
nnd spirit of sport, but in the letter
of tbe law nnd constitution.
Mr. Graham was forced ou to rotten, crumbling gi'Li'nd, Into a corner which must ha- i been ttie death
of overy true sporting sentiment.
Whnt wcre tbo conditions ol thoir
ontry, iio nskod, and was referred to
tho minutes of the last, meeting.
Thon he declared Nnnnimo would not
pluy on those conditions.
On a former occasion Mr. Graham's action ns a delegate
wns blankly ropucuatotl by his club.
Cn this occasion Mr. Graham, as
tho agent of his club, deliberately
sets aside tho decls ;i ,.f a meeting
at which Ills club was fully represented. What kind of sport is this?
What kind of reflection, wo may ask
tho Freo Press! does this cast upon
the Nunaimo Club? It is a sorry,
and a pitiable exhibition for any
club to mako.
Ladysmith merely asked for a
square deal, a spurting chance. Any
thing short of fairness is poor sport.
That much is admitted, and further,
the conditions governing a cun competition can always be altered. As
a matter of uict thc conditions governing the competition fur the B.
C. cup have already been altered,
and surely it Is not nsking much to
ropiest that they bo brought into
accordance with tho most rudimentary ideas of fair sport.. Indeed,
there ought never to havo been any
necessity for mnking such a rojihost.
if Nnnalmo had been the sports they
nro constantly exhorting us to bo.
The dual fact in tho whole argument is thot Lndysmith was the
only le.im thnt wns entered, Tbo
tonm hns been turned down, nnd nn-
other broach mndo in the ..sporting
fooling between tho two tciw-i-s. Tho
cop mny     stay in Nnnnimo forever.

LONDON, May 15.-C. W. ilower-

district in the Houso of Commons,
has notified Winston Churchill, president of tho Board of Trade, of his
intention   to question him    in    the
country retail stores for the purpose
or supplying meat direct to the consumer.
This query is based on tho statement thnt tho    Armours uro calling
that may result in a big benefit
mutch for the hospitul, making one
of the most interesting competitions
of the football season this year.
The suggestion is that the Owls
and Eagles of both Ladysmith and
Nanaimo take part in the match.
The idea is that the Eagles ot Na-
nuimo play the Owls ot Ladysmith,
und the o'wls of Nanaimo play the
Euglcs of Ladysmith, the winners
playing off. The matches are all
to be played on the cricket grounds,
proceeds to go to the hospital. Ladysmith, in return for sending tho
teams here would likewise be given
tho same contest in thoir city, the
O'.ls and Eagles teams from Nanaimo going down there some day.

The Hon, James Dunsmuir is
director of the Canadian Pacilic
Railway Company. The news came
early in the week from Montreal that*
he had been elevated to the directorate. The announcement - came
rather as a surprise locally. Even
those who profess to know all . ar
bout Mr. Dunsmuir's business bad
somehow not beon informed that he
held much C.P.R. stock.
It hus to be said that the deal
between Mr. Dunsmuir and the C.P,
R. company wus kept morvelously
secret. The most that ever appeared in the local press was a feeble
guess at the ultimate ilgure of exchange. Moreover Mr. Dunsmuir'
himself has always discountenanced

On the morning of June 14, 1777,
Mrs. Elizabeth Ross, or "Aunt Betsy Ross," as she Was known ln the
neighborhood, sat In the front room
of her modest brick house on Arch
street, Philadelphia. Time was
when this room had served as -' a
parlor and had boasted a haircloth
soi'u4 a pier glass, silver sconces for
candles, a mahogany table,
perhaps a Scotch carpet. Ilut Mrs.
Moss was now a widow, Her par-
lor had been converted into a store
room for the display of upholstering
goods, hags, bunting, gold braids,
and fringes, and materials for military and church embroideries. The
room back ol it was a workshop.
Aunt Betsy herslf had removed her
belongings to the second floor of,
her dwelling.
It did not look like a plac* ot
business, this modest brick house, ih
dune, 1777. It was set back Irom
the street, and its many paned windows were shaded by buttonwood
and willow trees. Lilac and show-
ball shrubs bordered the narrow
brick walk that led to the Iront
door. They had dons blooming but
the climbing roses were gay with
blossoms, while morning glory and
gourd vines almost hid the sun dial
that was painted on the wall.
The New Flag.
It was near noon when she saw
four -gentlemen , leave Independence
Hall. They .wer* well known to her
—Gen. Washington, Dr. . Franklin,
Robert Morris and her kinsman. Col.
Ross. Thsy walked slowly and
were in earnest conversation over a
paper which Gen. Washington carried. To Aunt Betsy's surprise they
turned into her own brick walk. Dr.
Franklin stopped to pick a love
pink for his button hole, but Ben.
Washington strode into the store
room and spoke' to ' the courtesying

proper people to seo. Well, Mr,
Dunsmuir is a C.P.R. authority him
self now, und ho can be approached
either as the heud of the coal company or a   railroad magnate.
-Altogether, Ladysmith should be
able now to obtain readier attention
to any request she may prefer. Mr.
Dunamuir, in spite of all his business disclaimers, is vitally interested
in the fate and fortunes of the city,
and could not escape using the influence of his new nosition to further
nnd improve its interests.
He is, it seems-the only director
who resides west of tho Rockies, and
as everyone knows, his interests are
all on tho island. Taking the appointment in conjunction with the
visit to London of Mr. Marpole, it
is safe to prophesy that British Columbia and Vancouver Island are to
receive particular atlontion from the
great railway company. Ladyamlth should reap its full share of
whatever prosperity is coining. With
its founder a director, its claims for
consideration in whatever developments are [projected will never
overlooked. It need occasion no
surprise, if in the next-few years
great developments tako place In the
west and particularly on the Island.
What the people and the Council of
Lndysmith have to do is to neglect
no opportunity of improvement and
to use to tho full the advantages
which may be reasonably expected to

replied that I would endeavor to get

I did not anticipate much difficulty.
When I made this reply .1 was conscious that I was taking a

However, the bous took the:
ground that the Celebration Commit
too, no more than tbe Football club,
were responsible for Sunday's exhibition and decided to keep their engagement. That was tho proper,
and perhaps the sportsmanlike courso
to pursue, and it is to lie hoped that
Nanaimo will return it in the future. They have not dono so in
the past. Ladysmith players were
pelted with stones on the Caledonian grounds a yoar ago. Nanaimo

There is little probability of a Canadian football tenm competing in the

tho following from the Toronto

is not a member

As a matter of fact Parker does
know something about the, gamo.' He

a spineless sport If ho had not. In

tho man who is    a good "hecklor"
and a    humorist    besides is always
suro to get a hearing.
Sir Henry Cujiiphell-lluiuiernuin,

the man who tried to "put" him,
and, needless to sny, Sir Honry novor answered any question incautiously.
"Would you 'mislippen' your constituency if appointed to olllco?" wns
a question which was put to him on
one occasion when there wus a prospect of a new government being
formed. Assuming that the inquisitive elector desired to know If ho
was likely to be Ijniier-Secretary for

"It will'depend first of all upon the
constituencies of the country whether
they return a political majority and
thon upon her majesty tho Queen
whether 'sho will nsk tho Liberal

upon* tho Liberal leaders whothcr

then upon myself whether I will consider it worth whilo to go In."
No member of Parliament ever faced tho Scottish "heckler" with so
much equanimity as did Mr. Bryco,
(now tho British Embassador at
Washington) when ho was representative for South Aberdeen. He was
equal to every assault; no matter
whether it wnB a frontal attack or
a flank movement, ho was always
ready with tho soft answer which
turned away wrath, with the reply
which was no answer to thc quos-
tioner, or with thu sally which covered his interrogator with confusion.
A former Speaker -of tho House of
Commons onco described Mr, liryce
as a walking encyclopaedia and that
epigram was never so woll illustrated os whon he was undor Uio Are

tio order soriously and pointedly put
this question: "Is Maistor Bryco—in

VANCOUVER, May 12.—The programme of the light which the North
American Transportation & Trading
Company ls waging against the combine of companies operating steamships on the Nome route has been
altered and instead of sailing from
Victoria for Nome on June 1 the
steamer Transit will sail from Vancouver on or about that date. In
all probability the Transit, now lying at Nanaimo, will be brought to
Vancouver this week and fitted out
for the northern voyage and take on
freight, some ot which ls already
here awaiting her.
Schubach & Hamilton, of Seattle,
agents for the big Alaska trading
company, at first planned to have
the Transit sail from Victoria, 'bat
Capt. S. F. MucKonzIo, agent for
the owners of the Transit, stated
today that arrangements had been
made to load hor lu Vancouver and
have her sail direct from here to
As appears on a dispatch from Seattle, tho North American Transportation It Trading Company Ib out
to fight the No.-no steamship combine to a standstill. This company
declares the combine is trying to
hold it up on freight rates and will
ship eight thousand tons of general
merchandise from Vancouver to St.
Michael and Nome on the Transit,
and just to give tho comblno oTrun
for Its money will slaughter the passenger rates, giving first-class transportation for half tho combine rates
and cutting the steerage accommodation down to a song, probably $16.
It is expected that approximately
six hundred passongers -will leave
Vancouver on the Transit whon sho
sails about June 1. Tho fitting out
of the steamer for this largo number
of peoplo and for the freight sho
will take out will moan tho expen
dlturo of about $10,000 in Vancouvor.
Whon tho Transit completes tho
Nome voyage sho will be maintained
ln service, taking tho run between
Seattle, Vancouvor and Prlnco Ru-
port, and making threo trips per
month. It Is even possible that hor
run may bo extended to take In
