City Fathers Discuss
Electric Light
The last regular meeting ot the
eft;' council was a decid • '■ y interesting one, on account of the instructive address delivered betore
that body by Mr. Hartley Gisborne,
who was Invited to be present, to
see if some arrangement could not
be made with the smelter to supply
the necessary current to light tbe
city. The information Imparted by
Mr. Gisborne will oSBlst the council
"board very materially ln the Installation of its own plant, if the present negotiations with the Tyee
smelter cannot be carried to a successful issue.
There were present at the meeting:
Mayor Nicholson, Aid Matheson, McKinnell,  Brown, Dier and RobertB.
The minutes ot the previous meeting were read and approved.
Mr. W. J. Watson, manager of the
Tyee Smelter Company, wrote the
council that Mr. Gisborne would be
prepared to discuss the matter of
supplying current to the city, and
asking for an appointment with the
Tho mayor stated that he had arranged with Mr. Gisborne to be .present at the council meeting and*thc
communication was received and
A communication was received from
William 0. Brent, through Mr.
Stewart, asking for the cuts for the
new debentures, so that they could
start printing them immediately on
receipt of the Information that thc
by-law had been carried.
Mayor Nicholson stated that he
had already attended to that matter, and that the cuts, etc., would
be in the handB of Mr. Brent this
Tho communication was therefore
received and filed and a suitable reply will be sent to.Mr. Brent.  .

Thc communication was received
and filed, and thc clerk" win* Instructed to forward thc.deslrod information.
Accounts aggregating $94.93 were
presented and ordered paid
Aid. Dier reported that he had
Interviewed Mr. Bcasley with regard
to the proposed electric light plant
on the Esplanade. In tho course of
the conversation Mr. Bcasley had
stated that there would not be much
difficulty in arranging for a site,
and Instructed 'the committee as to
tho best method ot proceeding in
the matter. He asked tho committee
to write to Mr. Littio to securo thc
permit for the spur track and tor-
ward the same to bim,
This the clerk was Instructed to
attend to at once.
Aid. Dier also reported tho result
ot his'Interview with Mr. Watson,
of the smelter.
The city clerk was instructed to
get a loan of (600 trom the Canadian Bank ot Commerce lor one
At this juncture the mayor expressed the opinion that the city
hall was badly ln need ot repairs.
In this opinion the aldermen without exception concurred, and that
building may be repaired later on,
Mr. John Stewart asked " permission to address the council', which
was granted.
Mr. Stewart asked the council 11
anything had been done with regard
to Mrs. Hutcheson'B claim against
the city.
Mnyor Nicholson replied that the
matter was now ln the hands ol the
court, and that the council had not
been notified that the action had
been Withdrawn.
Mr: Stewart said that Mrs. Hutcheson had no desire to take the
matter Into the courts. She would
prefer a settlement; outside ot the
courts, and wanted to know
the council intended to, dq.
Aid, Dior said he would prefer a
settlement ot some kind,
some ono clso to pay tho bills. II
tho bill could havo been collected In
the courts it would havo been set
tied before now. It seemed to him
unfortunato that Mr. Trembath
should not have paid this bill.
Mayor Nicholson said if thc council could not get assistance there
would bo many bills that could not
be paid.
...Mr. Stewart asked tho mayor If
the council Intended to turn thc bill
Mayor Nicholson believed that was
the intention of the council.
Aid. Dier wanted to know If Mrs.
Hutcheson was prepared to compromise the bill.
Mr. Stewart remarked that if thc
council did not intend to take any
action there would be no use offering to compromise.
Aid. Roberts said if the council
owed Mrs. Hutcheson anything they
owed her the full amount of the
Aid. Matheson agreed with the
mayor. If the city had employed
Mrs. Hutcheson they should pay her.
He would be willing to put his hand
in his own pocket and help pay the
bill, but thc council had no right
to do so.
Mayor Nicholson said it the council could get assistance they might
he able to do something.
Aid. Matheson did not think the
council was a charitable institution
and objected to paying the bill on
this account.
Aid. Dior thought the remark ill-
timed inasmuch as the council was
asking charity from tho Government.
He had heard- that Mr. Trembath's
placo had boon used as a pesthouse.
Mayor Nicholson said that the
Govcrament had placed a patient
there, but refused to pay the bill.
Mr. Stewart asked if he would convey the message to Mrs. Hutcheson
that the council ignored tho bill.
The course Bhe would pursue would
depend upon the message from the
Aid. Matheson stated that tho
council had ."already passed a motion
to that effect.
Mayor Nicholson repeated thc
statement thnt if the council got
Borne assistance thoy might be able
to do something.
Mr. Stewart- presumed that
was the feeling of the meeting,
that the council did not feel
posed to go any further, and
Mr. Gisborne then addressed tho
meeting. After entering into his
subject very fully, and explaining
many interacting points with regard
to electric lighting, ho asked the
council to give him some idea ot
what they wanted from tho smelter.
Betoro he could glvo them an answer
he would havo to know tho maximum
and minimum amount of. currant thc
council would agree upon.
This was a difficult 'question to answer, and puzzled even the mathematical ingenuity of tho mayor, Tho
aldermen admitted thoy were not
practical electricians and had to depend upon experts for Information.
However, it whs eventually decided
to let Mr, Glsliorno figure on a,minimum ot 2,000 candle power nnd u
maximum ot 2,500 candle power, the
rating to bo taken from the switch
board at the smelter. It Isundcr-
stood that the city will du all the

When James McCulloch left here a

local Odd Fellows Lodge that Mr.

named on the 1st ot May, and that

At the special meeting of the V.
I F. A. held ln Nanaimo Saturday
night to contidcr tho protests of thc
Ladysmith club against Brown and
Haoper and Hurrcn, thc home club
lost out. Nanaimo were represented by Messrs. Hindmarch and Ora-
ham, Esquimalt by Locksley, and
Ladysmith by Eno and Thornley
Jas. Adam, as vicc-presidoht, occupied the chnlr, Mr. Hooton Hill of
Victoria, secretary.
Beforo tho meeting opened the Nanaimo delegation asked for. a ruling
in the Victoria United case and
wantedto know why this team was
dropped from the league
For Information these gentlemen
were retorrod to the minutes of the
last meeting held in Victoria.
This caused considerable discussion
and as the meeting was called to
cansider the protest, the chairman
declared the discussion out of order.
The first business was the registration of Brown.
The secretary received the registration from Brown on the 27th ot April and gave Nanaimo permission to
play this man on the 30th it necessary. Rule 7, cup competition rules
"Players shall be a regular member in good stunding of tbe club they
represent' at least seven (7) days
prior to playing."
Yet the secretary receives this registration on the 27th and allowed
the player to take part in a league
competition on the 30tb. We talk
of living up to the constitution and
a thing like this to happen.
The secretary's excuso for this Is:
The form he received had the man's
signature of tho 24th, and claims
this makes thc player eligible. His
wny of figuring is thnt when a-player signs a form lie is registered.
Such a piece ot absurdity no one
has ever heard. Tho date of a player's registration Is trom the date ol
the postmark or when thc secretary
receives the torm.
Again, Recording to. hts way ot figuring a club can get a good player,
say Friday night, date the form last
week or any old time two days previous to tho game, and can be quite
rl'gililc to play Buy thc next dny
(Saturday). Who over hoard ot such
a thing, nnd because of this Injustice  Lndysmith has to suffer.
In tho case ot Hooper nnd Hurrcn,
the ruling il tho association was
that tho V. I. F. A. wns in no way
connected witli tho U. C. F. A., and
as the V. I. F. A. rules had nothing
concerning this question tho local
club lost out. Vet again, according
to Itulc I cup competition rules ol
the V. I. F. A.% It, reads:
"No player can represent (wo
clubs in one season."
Rule 9 of     thc B. C. F. A. roads:
"Thc clubs govcrnod by thc Vancouver district league entering lor
competitions will play under tho cup
competition rules adopted by this
league The clubs governed by the
Vancouver island Association will
play under the league system adopt
cb by that association. A player
playing In a gnmo for thc Vancouver Island Leaguo shall be held to
have played for thc B. C. cup and
a player having played in E. C,
cup game in the Vancouver district league shall not bo eligible to
play In the Vancouver Island League."
And these men nro still allowed
to play. Consider the Injustice to
Ladysmith team. Not that tho club
management have a kick against
the men themselves—hut In tho face
ot this rule the Nanaimo club dure
play them. This mutter will ho
thoroughly thrashed out at a mooting of the II. 0. F. A., and in the
meantime we have just to wait results.
Tho association have declared these,
men eligible to play and they will
be seen on the line-up ot thc Nanaimo United here next Sunday.
Tho whole question was nettled by
dolegato Locksley of Esquimau who
was the only noutral representative
at the meeting, and his verdict was
as follows:
"In the caso of Brown I find that
thero has been a misunderstanding na
regards the time or date from whence
u registration commences, and taking tills Into consideration, along
with the notification received by the
Nanaimo Footbull Club from the
V. I. League Secretary tbat Brown
was eligible to play on Sunday, 2nd
May, I come to thc conclusion that
Nanaimo played. Brown under thcta-
pness'ion that he was a tq'tj" qualified
and eligible man. In the caso ot
Hooper i.hd Hurrcn B (ind that we
playing under & different constitution
than the !.. ..land teams, have psac-
tically no jurisdiction ovor two con
utitutions and find also that there la
nothing mentioned in our Island
constitutions to debar any player,
that has been registered .a clear seven dnyB, taking part in n Vancouver
Island League game. But according
to thc constitutions of thc Mainland
teams I find that auy League
team securing tho services of any
player who has previously taken part
in Mainland championship games
leaves themselves open to disqualification when they come to compete
for the championship.
"Under thc above circumstances I
declare Ladysmith and Nanaimo United a tie for first place in the Vancouver Island League and ask them
to play oil with homo und home
games, date to be fixed and officials
appointed by one delegate from each
of thc said teams along with myself.
Messrs. Eno and Thornley thrashed out their case well and fought
every Inch of the way, while Messrs.
Hindmarch and Graham were there
with a great defence, but as the
matter was left to one man it was
rettlcd as stated in the above report.
The meeting was lengthy and at
times stormy and violent and lasted till tho wee sma hours. The
chairman was in an awkward position being a player ot tho protesting team and had,to try and remain
neutral but it was  hard—awful hard/

Within ten days the E. ft N. railway company will place on the market the first Vancouver Island acreage cleared for settlement. That
which will be sold Is a block ot one
hundred and twenty acres, situated
next to Ladysmith townsite. It is
to be disposed of in five-acre plots
and there should be a good demand
for this property.
Mr. Robert Rolston has kindly do
noted to the lacrosse club a set of

whole thing was a case ot mistaken

police officer out of business, but ho
knew not Callender. In thc twinkling of an eye ho was on his back
with a pair of handcuffs on his
wrists. From his language one
would conclude Clark was a product of
thc London slums. The Colonist ol
this morning states that ou April
27 Clark, it is alleged, cashed a
worthless cheque for (2.75 at the local branch ot thc Canadiau Bank ol
Commerce. Thc cheque, which pur.
ported to bo signed by the Seattle
Times Company, pcr J, W. McDonald, was payable to James E.
Wynne and endorsed by the latter to
Clark. On April 28 another cheque
similar to thc first, was cashed on
the Windsor Grocery. Thc cheques
in due courso went to Seattle, were
quickly shown to be torgcrios, and
were returned hero when thc police
were notified und thc hunt for Clark
commenced. In thc meantime he
had left thc city but bis trail was
followed through Duncans to Ladysmith. Clark claims to have travelled across the continent on foot

Another Big Match
for Sunday
The local seniors again meet Nanaimo United in the Island championship. The match takes place oa
the home grounds next Sunday, ths
16th last. There has beea coneider-
able discussion over the games this
season, and Nanaimo already had the
championship cinched since Victoria
nwde the 'handsome gift ot four
points. Again Ladysmith had a sure
thing ln the protest, but according
to the rulings of the last two meetings both teams must again meet to
decide the championship. According
to replay rules the teams must play
on neutral grounds. The association
will take all gate receipts and the
teams will p*ny their own expenses.
The meeting at Nanaimo decided
that there was no replay, and that
the teams play home and home
games to' decide. The game will
start at 3 p. m. sharp, and Mr.
A. Locksley, Esquimau, will referee.
It is to be hoped tbat this gentleman will hold the gnmc better In
chock and cut out all unnecessary
rough piny. Mr. Hart, ol Nanaimo,
and Mr. Turnbull, of Liulysiuit'.:,
will act as linesmen.
Arrangements arc being made with
tho E. ft N. to run a special train
trom Nanaimo, leaving there at 1:30
p. m. and returning nt 6 p. m. This
should bring u good crowd, and na
for tho game itself it promises to
go down in history.
Some of the would-bo sports who
do all thc talking on tho street corners are accusing several ot tho local players of selling thc last gamo
•gaiii.'t Nanaimo. It can bo taken
for gruntod that the mon who make
such accusations arc thc ones who
usually climb tho fence or watt till
half-time to get in free. No genuine
sport would mako such a statement.

have thc town and populace at
stake, and nro after higher honors

Hell Gwynn's Home Doomed
Mansion of Nell Gynne is doomed.
Brent house, another of London's
historic mansions connected, with
Nell Gwynn, is soon to fall into the
hands of the houtobreakers. i This old
building stands in Brentford, whicn
In the days .when Nell Gwynn lived
there, was practically a country seat
but to-day is a somewhat malodorous suburb ol western London; mainly noted for its breweries, gas
works, and other institutions of
like character which make their presence  known by their smell.,
In the early days' of its association
with blythe Nell the big mansion
about to.be demolished stood in extensive grounds. Nell Gwynn wail installed in Brent house in almost regal state, and it was here that
Charles II and she bad some of their
worst quarrels. It is recorded that
after one of these tiffs the lovers
parted on one occasion, supposedly
forever, but that night Charles came
back to Brent house and was so anxious to see his lady love that he
rode hiB horse up the stairs to,the
second storey.
Brent house figures largely in most
ot the episodes connected with the
infatuation of King Charles' tor pretty, witty Nelly as the Londoners
wero wopt to call her. Here occurred
the famous incident when Charles
created the dukedom ot St, Albans,
driven to do so by. a desperate act
of his sweetheart. Nell Gwynn bad
been complaining that her son by
Charles had no title, and his future
was too Insecure. In a fit of stimulated rage she soized the infant by
the feet, and acted as if she were
about to throw it through the window. And Charles, ln bis alarm,
cried out to Nell Gwynn: "Save the
Duke of St. Albans," thereby creating a title which brought with it an
ample "state. Tbe window from
which Noll Gwynn is said to have
made this attempt is pointed out today by the good people of Brentford,
who believe implicitly ln thc tale.

The house stands quite close to a
tiny stream called the Btent. In the:
timo of Charles II this rivulet was'
artificially widened and deepened so
as to accomodate the royal barge
which could come up to the house
without attracting an undue amount
of attention. It was doubtless this
feature of the place which possessed
a certain amount of attraction lor
the royal lover. At this mahiilon
Charles held somo ot his greatest
banquets, or rather, orgies; and
Brent house has the dubious distinction of having witnessed many of the
monarch's maddest doings. Nell was
much loved by tiic people, however,
and it was ber influence which olten
turned popular hatred In her favor,
There is little doubt that the king
entertained a genuine affection tor
her, for his last words were: "Let
not poor Nelly starve."
Many places in London, besides this
house were associated with Nell
Gwynn. The church pj §t, Martins-,
in the Fields, in Trafalgar,aquare, received its bells from Nell Gwynn..,
With tho disappearance ot Bront
house, London will lose the, building
most closely associated with Nell
Gwynn. and her lover. There has been
some talk ot putting up a. tablet on
th$ house which Will take the place

the Forestry Commission in New
York has notified the railroads that
traverse thc Adirondasks that
from April to November they
must use oil-burning locomotives. It was tound that the
expense of electricity would be prohibitory, and the use of oil will add
about f50,000 a year to the expense

ha6 more timber in it than any other in the Dominion, and tbe annual
loss from destroyed timber caused
by fires from passing locomotives is
very much greater than it should
be, says the Rossland Miner. It is
absolutely necessary tbat the destruction of one ot the chief sources
of wealth be reduced to a minimum.
It is a matter which deserves the
special attention of the Provincial
Government, and a commission
should be appointed at once to look
into it and report on some elfective
means of reducing the loss to the-
lowest possible poine, Unless the1
destruction ot timber from'this1
source can be reduced by radical
means it will grow and increase with
the augmentation in the miles ot
railway built. Now is the time Ior
the government to move energetically in this matter, and prompt action
is necessary, at it Is admitted by
al) who have studied the question
that the present safeguards are totally Inadequate.

Rood than all the medicine I had taken (ur many years, which cost me many
