Council then adjourned.
Local Option and
It is stated that the provincialjfjiv..
ernment has decided to SuhmVt thc
question of local option to"t1>" people in the form of a referendum. We
think this a wise conclusion. The
petition presented to, the government
was very large and representative,
but something more is needed in the
matter of this kind than a petition.
Local' option is legislation of a very
important nature. Not very much
difficulty is likely to be encountered
that a person has been seriously injured and has to be conveyed down
to that place, the journey is Very
likely to have a bad effect on the patient. This is not a case of doubt
either, tor medical men have 110 hesitation ih asserting that they have
known of many casts where ,thc journey has been attended with very serious ccnsequcnces. _Ta);c ttit case of
the young fellow, Julius Hyefbrand,
who -was injured. in the mine last
week. He is apparently lccoyeriiig
from the immediate effects oi the ac-'
cident, but it is quite possible that
there may have been a fracture of a
bone of the'sjtull, in which event the
trying journry of sevch miles over thq
roads in the present condition to the'
hospital would prove exceedingly
dangerous and load to serious developments. In this young Jellqw's case
it can bo easily seen tlhvt*ir hospital
in the majority of communities in . in Ladysmitli would have proved very,
bringing such a taw into effee 1. Peo-1 advantageous, Instead ol a two
pie,-carried forwent on a' wave of'hours' ride over a rough road, he
enthusiasm, will Vote for It, but' us- coijlif.haVc ten plated in the, hospi-
ually, when it is brought into opera- tal" immediately on liis arrival (rout
tion, these same people will not take I the minis where he would have rc-
the-steps'  necessary lo see that  the'reived the immediate attention ofthe
law is enforced.   Hence the last stage
of sonic communities brought under
tho law is worse twfti the first.
Therefore it is in the highest degree
desirahler that before any such law M
put upon the Staluto boo'.t, there
should be a strong and unmistulcablij
expression ot opinion in its favor. A
Victoria despatch to the Toronto
Globe, says: "there is every indication that local option will tc given
the slogan ot the Liberal party in the
n.'Xt provincial -elections." . We see
no reason to believe that this will nc
the .case, and il would lc an-exccci1
ingly regrettable thing if it should
prove to le so. The cause of temperance will not gain anything,by being dragged into the.mire ot party
politics.' The presentation of thc
question in thc (orm of a referendum
ought to satisfy all'parties, especially as it will give the advocates of
tha proposed measure an.opportunity
to demonstrate the full strength of
public opinion on the, subject. There
are- thousands of Conservatives who
favor tho restriction ot the liquor
traffic, but if they tound the (question
I made' a political issue by'1 the Liber
stalking horse, and hence refuse to
vote in favor of It. Let us have a
full and free expression of opinion in
this very important proposal, without any refcrcucc to thc other issues,
hlrli will necessarily arise wherever
thc provincial elections are brought
oh. If tho vote or a plebiscite is
pronouncedly in favor of local option,
any government will be bouhd to give
cttcct to It.-Victotia Colonist.        «

tt was believed by some that undue Interference in the affairs ot thc
people of Ladysmitli was being ta'kcn
■ hy some one at Victoria.   Several lit.
stances were pointed out where Hits
interference was liuwn to have taken place, and there, was a disposition
manifested to resent further meddling
from the quarter suggested.
The mayor,, believed - a delegation
should go down to Victoria, and   it
'. was   simply 'a   question as to   the
composition ot   this delegation that
worried tho council.
Aid McKinnell believed 'that there
should lie three aldermen and moved
a resolution to that effect.

Another instance is that of thc
woman Mrs. McUinuini, who, in h
condition hovering between lite and
death, had to.be conveyed over the
Same 1 tough road to the 'hospital,
where she was to undergo an operation. While she is now practically
out of danger, it wns nothing short
of a miracle, that she ever lived tu
reach Chemainus.
Besides these two, there are six
other Ladysmith patients at present
in. the hospital at Chemainus,'
two , in the Nanaimo Hospital,
and several others Waiting to get into
the hospital for treatment, wf a more
cfless, serious character.
it will be seen that the time has
now -arrived when the citizens of Ladysmith must consider seriously thc
question cf providing hospital accommodation. It is doubtful if
there is one city in British Columbia
where the necessity for such an institution so frequently presents itsel' as
right here, and yet, strange to say,
no move has- yet been made in supply^
ing thc want. It is not a very expensive    undertaking   to equip   and
One oi thc most enjoyable event*"
feiifi has transpired in Ladysmith oc-*
curved last Friday evening wh.cn thc
members of the Presbyterian church
choir and Sabbath school superintend.1
ent and teachers. bes;«W many' others
met in the social hall at thc church
to bid Miss Mabel McMillan farewell.
Mrs. H. Pollard and Mrs. Guthrie
had taken ample precaution sonm
days previous to ensure "an entirely
successful evening and the generous
response with, which they were met
showed the very estimable character
of Miss McMillan, and the-tost of
friends she had made during her residence in Ladysmith.    ., _
Miss McMillan was appointed ,or_-
gani.st when, she first came to Ladysmith and was a faithful attendant
on her duties in that capacity having
only missed one Sabbath during hcT
residenco here5. Mot only was she
faithful in that capacity, but, being a
trained singer, and gifted with an ex{
optionally beautiful, voice, her assistance at;entertainments, and solos
in church, servlc, could not be estima*
ted and not only thc church but
many other orgnsizdNons will fc?l
keenly the absence of Miss McMillan.
After a pleasant time' with games,
etc., was spent those assembled were
culled to order and Miss McMillan
was asked to come forward, when
Mrs, Gulhrie* read a very touching
addrc:.s and little Mfc.s Norah Pollard presented Miss McMillan witli a
beautiful and VclMlled purse as a
token ol approbation of her services.
h.Miss McMillan too full ol feeling
and astonishment to reply, hoM»Hi-
er, Rev. Jas McMillan, made a
very suitahlo acknowledgement in hct
I cha'f. . !
A bountiful repast having been
prepared, all present indulged in.the
good things provided, after which
games and singing^were indulged in
till eleven o'clock wheg the old 'part-
in' hymn, "God Be With You Till
We Meet Again," and the pitting
salutations were given.

Kev. 0. M. Ambrose went down to
Duncan this morning to attend a
meeting of the Rural Deanery, which
takes plr.ee there to-day.
The delegation appointed to consult
with Mr. Mohun with regard to the
septic tank' will leave? for' Victoria oti
the morninj train Saturday.
The band will hold its fast dance
in the hall next Saturday evening.
New floors have been laid down and
nothing that will help to make the
event enjoyable Will be overlooked.
Miss Ada' Mercutt was married last
week at Sumiherland, B. C, to Rev.
A. T, Robinson, the Baptist clergyman at that place. Rev. Dr. Spencer performed thc ceremony. Miss
Mercutt is a noted lecturer, and has
been one of the principal organizers
in conncct'pn with the Local Option
The audience that attended tliccphj
cert given in the Ladysmith Opera
House by the Orpheus '-lice Chili, ol
Nanaimo, last Saturday Was not as
l.irgc as it should have been. The
choruses ,V',d glees were enjoyable
mil the solos wc.c deservedly ap
plaudcd. The" violin solo was one ol
-lbs most enjoyat'c numbers of the
levffiing. ■ '
McMillan gave that couple, a surprise
the other evening, the occasion being
the birthday of Mr. McMillan. • There
wcro a large nuinbqr. present and
games and dancing were,kept up till
early morning. Mr. and Mrs. Mc-,
Millan received, several nice presents.

The Colonist Report
There has been a fair attendance as
I the opera house'this we.i!;, and the
pictures ha'ti teen decidedly attractive. The one of the "tiirl Nihilist''
tells a dramatic story of political intrigue in Russia; and there arc several others equally as Interesting.^1
The programme for the last three-
nights of the week in addition to the
songs: "Morning, Cy," and "Hoo
lloo," will be "Love and   Hatred,"
In reply to the statement appearing"in_ to-day> Colonist it is on'y
fafr to state the Ladysmith side of
lh.3 cace. Victoria has a had habit
of'changing thc dates and have teen
accommodated up till now. Thc
Wests asked the' local management to
postpone the game but as the sched-
maintain such an institution; and thc^,e fe SQ fw ^^ m ^ y£
impossible.   On Friday Victoria tele-
Thc elocutionary contest in conncc
Hon with thc local W. C. T. U. was
hchl In the Methodist church Tuesday evening. There was, a good attendance and six contestants entered
tor. the medal. Miss Baggattin won
(Ira medal. There was only, one/point
between tlie winner and thc second.
Time was also a miscellaneous-programme in whlo'.i the lollowlng took
part. Mrs. W. Thompson, Miss E,
Hutcheson, Mr. Parfitt, Mr. Mulhol-
land, and Mr. Lett. Alt'tt the con--
test Mrs. das. Malpass, president ol
tho,W. C. T I', called thc contestants fot'ward to the platform and
complimented them. She then presented the medal to the winner and
thc hooks to thc'Others. The chair
was occupied by Rev. R,-Wilkinson.
Rev. Mr. Ambrose delivered a short
City Clerk Morrison was officially
notified to-day of the-appointment ol
Mr. V. B. Harrison as police iinrgls-
compensating advantages arc great
in proportion to thc cost. No doubt
the Provincial Government, and others, would subsidize such an institution, nnd as for .the building .itself it
would not have to be an expensive
structure.  -
Everyone is'satisfied, that it Is necessary to have a. hospital in Lady-
Miiil.h, hut the best way to go about
it is the problem. Someone has suggested that the women, Iffirc, as thcyJ
have done in other places, would tie
capable of carrying the work to a
successful issue.
I'n uny event it is a live subject and
should command Immediate attention.
Tho Citizens' League, which is doing
a good work in the way of solving
the" transportation problem, should
now take up the hospital question.*
\ meeting ot Hie fire brigade was
held .11 the eify hall last night, being, thc first meeting since the new
chict took office." Chlcl Morrison wasV
instructed " lo interview ex Chief
Smith and ascertain what material
tho depart ment actually owns. The
chief was also initructtd■ to present
an Inventory of all appliances at tho
next niect'ng 011 Friday, March Di at
7 p. m., .when thc brigade will effect
an'organization. All members mirat
tc present and report, or send in a
written report, stating what appliances: arc in their.possession.
graphed that unless thc game was
put off they would be unable to send
a team. Later in thc evening their
manager, Mr. Tail, telephoned to ttie
club saying that if thc game was not
postponed Victoria West would not
send a team. Word was sent to ManJ
agcr E110 lo tins effect nt eleven p.
ill. On Saturday morning a message
was sent stating the Victoria West
learn would be up. (Notice thc particular care taken to notify tho man-
atcinent.) All tho local players were
at work and it Is due to thc efforts
of Manager Eno lhat wc had ., gaum
at all. Victoria landed here at noon
and were going to pli-y at 0 p. in.
whether Ladysmith were on the field
or nett. Anyway they decided Hint i.)
would be better to play than lose
the points ond consented to kickrofl

Washjind rush to the field without
supper, ju:;l to accommodate a Victoria team who were trying to gain
fin points without earning them.
According to thc constitution this
team could be made forfeit the point

left with a weak, team'. Pcthaps tbojl
did but they landed here with tlio
strongest team that ever played under Victoria West colors. Tho game
ended in a drs.w aud not in a win tor

Mr. W. 0. Fraser, who holds the
responsible position of harbor master
at this port, has had many strange
adventures by land and sen, but It is
doubtful If anything ot so strange a
character ever happened lo him in
his career, as a fishing incident during the enrly patt ot thh week. Il
appears, Irom the best evidence obtainable that Mr. Fraser went out
duck-hunting, but the high W.'flds iu
tottered with his sport. Naturally
iic was greatly disappointed, and alter spending several hours in search
of the elusive duck, he nmde up his
mind to return home. While paddling along he happened to look out
01 ct the walet', and he observed a
great 1 commotion. AIL at once a furious gale sprang up, nnd Imagine bis
surprise when he saw a great gust
lift an lSt-lb. cod fish out. ol the water anclllaitd it'high up 011 thc rocks.
Without unnecessary delay, Mr. Fraser made for the rocks and after a
long and valiant struggle he carried

It i:< quite.probable thc present session ot, the Legislature will termirtfttc
this wee":. There has been a vast
iimo". nt of useful- legislation enacted
during the session now "drawing, 'to :i
close.       ^
Tlie Dominion secretary of state
gives notice nt a 1)1)1 for the creation
ol a department of external affairs
which is to have control of .",11 cor-
. respondenfe relative to imperial cnl
foreign affairs.
The London Standard demands
direct le.-.rcscntation tor ovcr-sca
states ort thc committee of "Imperial
Defence, as a condition prior tc any
organization ol the Imperial navy
and military forces.
The demand ot certain Liberal
newspaners that Mr. Barnard should
rc3i|h in view ot the disclosures with,
regard to the Colonist telegram, is
to say the least, amusing. Just
fancy .a Liberr.1 resigning for a s'fci-
ilar reason if he were in Mr! Eain-
■ ard's |.la?e.
The decision of tlie city council to
sertd a delegate to Victoria to interview Mr Mohun with regard to a
septic tan'.! will be endorsed hy the
citizens generally. The itnprc: sion
seems to be that the comu il should
proceed with the work, ahlr,n.ionin(5
the septic tank pi'jppsal tor, the pre.
sent, and giving a guarantee that if
it is found necessary: it will Le built
at a later period.*
The Grand Forks Gazette has the
following with regard to buying
goods from the Eastern department
stores; ,   •
"How many people 4n ordering
goods from eastern cities ever think
to ailcl to the catalogue prices thcox-
prcss or freight on the parcels'! .Most
people compare catalogs prices with
the local rates without considering
tlie price that must be paid for
lingc. Often thev goods when laid
down here cost more than~they would
cost in a local establishment.
"The only, possible, excuse ior dealing by mail-order is the,cry of cheaper prices and even this, when true,
should be weighed against local patriotism. The mail-order man does,
nothing fcr the local community
while the local institution is part of
thc community, sturing its prosperity
and adversity and frequently carrying on credit the very people who use
their cash to get mail-order goods.
If- it le true that the express rates
do away with this alleged difference
in cost or even 'bring it to a minimum there seems ho reason why the
mail order business should thrive, except lack of knowledge ot local bargains.    -   .
'^.bls is not intended as a defense
for any overcharging on goods, any
mci" than it is fcr any person who
thinks to take the high- wages of this
district and then get tta prices ot
tlio eastern house that pays eastern
wages. N-qr. is it a defence for thoso
who, cither demand that their print'
ina; he done iii competition with the,
astern institutions that pay lower
wages and .lower costs all around, or
in competition with city plants that
ha p facilities local patronage has
failed to build up here. Nor is this
article intended to entirely condemn,
the customer who dealt with a mail,
order firm for the goods the local institution had at us advantageous ,pri-
ccj.tut failji;! to let the customer
know, while thc inail-order man told
the people his goods and prices.
"This newspaper,otters its columns
at reasonable rates to all lo;al institutions lo place in each home every
wce'.i, an announcement ot.whab they,
have to. otter. Such advantage' the
mail-order house has not gotpnor
catr he s^et from this paper at any
price, and no other medium can give
this slr\ice no matter how'willing
So long as many columns of our advertising space is not used, as at
present, the people cannot be entirely
blamed for getting the goods where
their trade 15' solicited. .»   -
"We do what wc can to induce the
community to t17.de at home, (but the
local institutions must place - their
iioods before the public or our work
will have much less effect."
A Practical Proposal
The correspondent ot the London
Times mattes the suggestion that the
Old Country should loan to Canada
Sojfte of her "retired warships" for
purposes of fishery protection, with ^
\iew to saving us the cost til- building such vessels for ourselves. We,
on the other hand, it is hoped, would
be induced to spend the money thus
saved on real nuval construction.
The proposal .is certainly practical^
and deserves consideration. If thc
Old Country is putting out ot com
mission vessels whicli arc considered too out-of-date to l;e kept-tn the
Navy l'ist, but which are nevertheless
quite fitted for the work of fishery
protection, it would certainly he a
saviilgi ot "money for es to Like them.
What we should do with the money
thus1 saved would, 0! course have to
be discussed. Some wo»ld ad'.ocatc
the building of a battleship, 'while
others would favor tho spending of
the money in perfecting the Militia.
As wo said last week, there is much
to le said trom thc Imperial point
of view tor the strengtheningtit Canada's military forces, since they
might in time of great need be used
to garrison tlie Old Country when
the British regiments were cm foivigr.l
service. Thc Old . Country can keep
her Navy up lo modern I't^uireiiiotitK.
bui the Bri.lish Army could well hear
reinirirscmcnls from the dominions
over soas. Thc'plan woitd have the
merit of releasing the Navy from
home waters, the defence of the country being largely left to these rcin-
•fercements. Thc Montreal Star devoted a leading article to .the tiurs-
