Council Discuss
Sewer Question
Tlie present state of the sewer bylaw wa* the cause of most of the
discussion at the meeting ofthe
- council last Monday night. While it
was regretted that so much delay
hod taken place, a general' desire
was expressed that the by-law be
submitted at the earliest possible
moment to the ratepayers.
There were present: Mayor Nicholson in the chair, Aid. Dier, Brown,
McKinnell, Matheson, Haworth, Rob-,
crts and Campbell'. •
The minutes of the previous regular meeting and the special meeting
were read and approved.
Mrs. Fred. Voter, Vancouver, wrote
that she had no objection to paying
her share for thc cement sidewalk in
front .of her premises on Roberts
street providing thc city paid one-
third ol the cost, and her share of
the cost to extend over a number of
years, the same as Is done under the
Improvemcntby-law at Vancouver.
After Borne discussion, during
which it was decided to notify Mr*.
Voter as to the conditions under
which the Ladysmith Council were
building concrete sidewalks, the letter was received and filed for future
Rev. Father Nicolaye asked tor
permission to use certain portions
of We market square for children's
playground, and was willing to enter into an agreement to remove the
smaller stumps, and relinquish all
rights in tbe event of the city requiring the ground at any future
Some of the aldermen doubted
whether tbe council could graut any
special privileges, but lt waB boliev-
..ed.that ,if the.children played there
no objection could very well be taken by th* council or citizens.
Just at this juncture there were
some hot word* between Aid. Dier
and tbe mayor, the former claiming
that His Worship bad cut him short
in bis remarks.
His Worship disclaimed any lnton-
tiuri of being discourteous to Aid.
Dier, and it was finally resolved
that it committee be appointed
to arrange the matter of the play-
The mayor appointed Aid. Brown, I
McKinnell and Matheson on the
Mr. Wm. Ward asked permission to
extend the Building now occupied by
Carley ft Carley a* a printing office
21 feet further back, and the application was accompanied by a drait
of the proposed change.
Tbe plan was referred to the lire
wardens for approval.
Mr. (leot-ge Ross submitted plans
for a proposed change In his residence.
This plan was also referred to, the
fire wardens for approval.
Accounts aggregating s)60.92 wero
wcro presented, and referred to the
finance committee, to be paid if
fcund correct.
Aid. Dier reported that he and Aid.
Haworth had hot yet hod an opportunity of : Interviewing Mr, Little
with regard to a spur track to the
electric lighting plant, and the committee was glVen another week to
Mayor Nicholson' rcportotl as to his
visit to Victoria ln regard to the
sower by-law. Tho report was virtually the same as contained In the Interview with Mis - Worship In last
Saturday's Chronicle. ;.;,
The mayor stated that In a tele-
| phone  message   received  from   Mr.
Burgee*, W. Brent's representative
now ln this    province,   the council
' wa* requested to confirm the sale of
1 the debenture* to Mr. Brent.
His Worship Inclined to the belief
that lt would he quite proper to give
this aaauranc*, but several of tli* aldermen did not Ilk* to do anything
i without first consulting a solicitor.
Home believed that Mr. Brent   had
Just as    much    assurance that he
| would get thc debentures as the city
| had that he would take them, lt was
pointed out also that thero was   a
motion passed by tho council that
Mr, Brent's offer should bo accepted;
One alderman did not think It would'
be well   for the council to commit
themselves to anything until the by-
! law wa* finally adopted,   Finally lt
Was decided to leave the matter ov-
A .communication, irom John Stewart with regard to the debenture*
was laid over for future reference.
- Aid. Campbell was granted another week in which to introduce bis
sewer by-lnw.
The bill of the undertaker tor the
burial. bf Mrs. Kerr was again up
for discussion. Tho undertaker
agreed to accept (35 in payment in
full and to return that amount If at
any future time he could recover thc
money trom Kerr, ,
Several of the aldermen had
doubts as to toe responsibility of
the council and' doubted if it could
be collected.
Nothing will be done with regard
to the bil, in the meantime.
Aid. Campbell brought up tbe
question ot fruit trees. He wob
strongly in favor of planting tbe
trees as they beautified the city.
Aid. Dier reatl a letter from Mr.
George Wilson, In which it was stated that Wm. Spence would supply
the trees and plant them at the
rate of 45 cents per tree.
Aid. Haworth' emphatically objected to the planting of shade trees as
a municipal undertaking. The city
could not protect the trees. It would
take about one policeman to each
tree. H* had planted trees, and be
knew what he was talking about. He
would vote against trees being
bought by the city.
Mayor Nicholson referred to tho
tact ot the shade tree planting having been recommended by tho Citizens' League. The relation* botween
the League and tho council in thc
past had been of tho most satlslac-
tory character, and very olten thc
.council had been benefitted liy the
good work of the League. He would
like to see something done in this
Aid. Roberts believed the money
spent in planting trees could be
used to better advantage on the
Aid. Matheson would like to see
shade trees planted, but he would
prefer having good streets.
J. X. Smith Leaves
The great wave of moral rcforni'
that has been spreading over thc
Dominion from thc Atlantic to. tbo
Pacific struck Ladysmith with tre-'
mendous force last Sunday night.
The impression has prevailed fqr
some years ln certain quarters that
Ladysmith was proof against Invasion ot the moral reformers, but the!
past few days has shown that this
security wns more Imaginary than'
Fleryone who has ever visited ua-

believe they can beat tbe game by
playing systems, but Smith had a

It was even charged that boys of
tender years, who should have been
in bed when the curfew bell rt.ng,
spent their time and their money in
Smith's gambling Joint. In brief,
this placo was a menace to the well-
being of society, and efforts lave
been made In the past to rlii«s it
up. but without avail. Some i.l the
it-oral reformer* claimed that Smith
had a pull, and the keeper himself
appeared to think that he was sate
from the interference of the authorities. But, ns was before, stated, this
security Was really Imaginary, and
thc majesty of the liyw 1ms once
more bcon vindicated.
For some time thc police commissioners have had Smith's place under
surveillance. Three private detectives trom Seattle bad been engaged
to watch the "restaurant" and report everything' going on there.
These detectives were up here on
March payday and for two or three
days following, nnd again they .visited here last week. They also visited the place conducted by a man
named L. C. Klein, on Fifth nvenue
and Roberts ntrcot, and found it to

Aid. Dier also thought it would be
better for the aldermen to attend a
meeting of the League. It 1* an important matter and should be settled at one*.
The tre* planting question was laid
over, and many ol the aldermen said
they would attend the next meeting
of the Gluteus' League.

Mayor Nicholson believed that the
matter could be satisfactorily arranged when the by-lnw came up for
consideration. He owned a corner
lot himself and would be one ot the
victim*, but ho was not disposed to
kick. In any event the council could
equalise the rate*.
the council adjourned, after an ox-
milch, -use, lt   being only llko a license.  He presped the charge.
Before sentence was passed Smith
addressed . the court. He' told tbe
magistrate that he felt satisfied he
would die it sent to gaol, and he
was not ready to "croak" yet. Police Magistrate Harrison, however,
was not in a sentimental mood. He
told the prsoner. that his offence
was a serious one. Many people had
found an excuse for alcohol and
there was at least something returned for the money spent, but no one
had found anything in favor of
gambling. It had no redeeming fear
tur« and must be stopped.
He sentenced Smith and Klein to
six months'   imprisonment
th* option ol a fine.
It Is hoped by many that this will
forever put an end to gambling
house* of this character in Ladysmith, and even those who do not
claim to hold strong religious views
unite heartily In this sentiment.

Scientist Finds
Peruvian Mines
One of thc most notable discoveries regarding the early history ol
Peru has recently been made by Hewitt Myring, an English antiquarian,
who has arrived in Now York on his
way home. He has 2,000 specimens
ol pottery and weapons of the ancient Peruvians.
Remains and relics of the early inhabitants of Pern, which art) raid by
sciential* to date from 4,000 to 7,000
B. 0., were found by, Mr. Myring under an old Inca burying ground when
he was exploring in the mountain*
about 200 miles inland from Lima.
The bodies in the burial ground were
found to be. in an excellent state of
preservation, the, hair, skin, and thc
clothing being preserved by the silicate in tlie soil.
Whon thc bodies wero exposed to
thc air the bones and skulls crumtjlcd
into dust, barely giving the explorer
time to take photographs of thc
mummies. Each grave contained the
remains ot food and glazed clay Jugs
wltii two handles and a cover with u
long tapering spout, which wcro filled with a liquid snpposcd
been a wine of nome^klnd
wero fully clothed In embroidered
garments of line texture, showing tho
people had the same belief as the In-
con ln the after lite where the good
were to have all the luxuries and the
wicked to do the work, so tho scientists contend.
All the specimens of pottery were
artistirally designed in the shape of
men or animals and the glaze was as
perfect as the day it was put on,
probably about 0,000 years ago. The
ancient Peruvians excelled in the art
of pottery making, especially in the
firing and decorating. In addition to
the pictures of men and animals,
many of the specimens ^ere decorated with Chinese dragons and weird-
looking fish resembling mermaids and
sailing cr.itt like junks.
The most valuable part of this discovery of antiquities, according to
Mr. Myring, cousisted ot the great
urns, some of them six feet long and
so heavy that It required three men
to carry them. They were found juried beside mummies, nnd thc majority ot them had the features of the
dead man or woman delicately carved cither on thc upper part of the
urn or on a solid stand beneath. Thc
faces on the urns woro all of a dark
brown color, and glazed as smooth
and hard as a billiard ball, ns if thoy
had just left tho hands ol thc potter.

The coBt ol the features ol these gave several specimens of the collec-

If you doubt .that war is less deadly to-day than in ancient times, compare some of the battles. Hannibal
slew 48,000 out'ot 60,000 vanquished
I Romans at Cannae.   At Mukden, atter many days of fighting, the Rus-
I sian dead, including those lost In the'
retreat, were barely 30,000 out of n
total number engaged ot nearly 400,-
000. The vanquished Russians tn the
greatest set fight ot modern times,
when Teigo smashed their fleet ati
Teuskima, lost only 10,000 in botl»|
