Now Players Given a Trial   In a
Friendly Tussle.
If the attendance at the practice
football match on the Sports ground
on Thursday evening may be taken
as a criterion, the local Interest and
enthusiasm in the winter pastime is
going to be keener and stronger than
ever this season. Of course, there
wns an additional attraction in the
fact that new men were being tried
oit and after the final toot of the
rotarontlal whistlo ono might have
thought from the crowded appearand of First Avenue that a big
gr—e had Just ended. There is no
doubt about it that with a good
teum, the local club is going to have
a record season.
It is not, pf course, a lair thing to
Judge any player upon bis play ln a
gr.ine such as that of Thursday even-
in-;. Some ol the new men wero

Standard Correspondence Ask For a
By-law to Protect Them.
Editor Standard :
;' Sir,—The question of giving protection to shade trees planted along
our streets has been a vexed ono,
and many fine shade trees would today have been planted along our
streets if any protection hnd been
given to prevent horses and people
Irom destroying them. A clear case
of wilful destruction was given to
tho Council in July last year, but
absolutely nothing was dono in tho
This yoaf, what trees survived the
onslaughts of lust year, have been
eaten off all summer long by drivers'
horses, and, when the matter was
brought up at the last sitting of the
Council, his worship the mayor and
Aid. Matheson both stated that they
would prosecute if their trees were
destroyed ln like manner. Thero Is
not a by-law in tho whole city's code
to prevent any driver from allowing
his horses to stand and eat tho
young shoots of a treo as long as
the horse is not fastened in any way
to the tree, or the box around It,
and the only by-law our Council has
got relative to such protection is
Sec. 11., which says: "No person
shall tie or fasten any animal to any
tree, shrub, or sapling now growing
or planted, or which -may lie hereafter grown or planted ln any street,
square, park, highway or public
placo within tho said city, or to any
caso or box around such tree, shrub
or .sapling.
Now, supposing a caso should bo
entered against anyono for permitting an animal to oat the tops off
young trees, and tho defendant employed legal counsel on the case, how
long would it take a lawyer to tear
that section to shreds and havo tho
esse dismissed? Wo would bo very
thankful if our council would givo
this matter their attention and lot
us have protection for our shade
That Association Iootball will givo
all other Winter pastimes a run for
popularity noxt senson Is evidenced
by tho fact that ovor l.oOO players'
certificates have been signed, and It
is fully expected that this number
wlll bo oxeeedod before tho opening of
tho senson. Mr. Will Bills, former
secretary of the Vancouver District
Leagtio, informed tho Sporting Editor of the Vancouver "News-Advertiser" that the officials of tho League
wlll havo their hands full in carrying
Ing the arrangements through this
year. There will lie sovon Senior
clubs In tho Vancouver District League again this year, while no less
than twenty clubs have Joined the
second division. In addition to
thoso already affiliated with the Lsague, there aro four second division
clubs at Chllliwa'ck, including three
teams composed ot Indians, two
clubs at Sardis and one olub at the,
Mission, North Vancouver, that have
applied lor affiliation with the governing body. The following clubs
will compote ln tho second division :
Celtics* Shamrocks, New Westminster, Thistles, North Vancouver, Nationals, "Westhum Island. V.A.C.Y.M.

Great Crowd Expected to See First
Meeting of Two   Rival
Ottawa, Ont., Aug. H-' Sir Wilfrid T_aurier left this morning for
Athabascavllle. Hon. Fielding . Mt
this afternoon for for Nova Scotia. ■
There is sure to be.a big crowd at
the football match tomorrow afternoon. There is no getting away
from the rivalry between the two
towns. A meeting between the two
teams is par excellence the tit-bit of
tho football season. Of course, in
this caso it is only a friendly fixture, but BtiU there is no dangor of
tho play ever becoming slack. Doth
teams will Jj© out to win, and, while
the ploy on the whole, be something
crude and short, there will he nothing lacking in effort and intention.
After the practice game on Thursday evening tho Executive committee
met In the Standard ofllco and selected thc following toam to play on
Backs.—Christian, O'Connell.

As was "pointed out in a recent issue of tlie ""Standard" the conditions have never before been such as
called for a high school. Thore has
to be at least twenty pupils before
the Education Department will step
in and sanction its formation. The
requisite number wore only available
after last examination, and that the
pup-ils ure hero now is in itself a
striking proof of the efficiency'of the
teaching staff and of thc board of
control. i
Since tho matter was mentioned in
tho Standard steady efforts have
been going on to secure tlie foundation of a High School. These cul-
'■mlnat-d 4»k.a_yisiit .to the city by In
spector Gordon who personally: cotirfno iitna ainoe ho got bae1- from Ot-
ed on the parents bf the pupils and
received their assurances that provided a high school wore.started,
their children would attend. Inspector Gordon reported to the Department and yesterday Mr. John Stewart, the Clerk of the Trustees, re-
|fCOived official notification that a high
school will be started. A properly
qualified teucher is being advertised
for, and it is hoped that the hew institution will open out simultaneous-'
ly with the to-assembling of the
schools. lil
Altogether it is a very gratifying
piece of nows, and the Trustees aro
to bo warmly .congratulated on the
energetic manner in which they have
carried the matter through.

Tb* ''Herald" in it* issue ol Friday take* advantage of a rate—* be-
laited notice of the Ladysmith "Chronicle" to get in some rather shifty
criticism of the Standard and its
editor. The latter, it seems, ha*
been making some uncalled ior remarks wbich tha Herald with its
never-failing conceit in itself and its
wisdom seta out to be correct. Our
sin has been that we have, spoken o'
previous Journal* in Ladysmith sa
"failure*," or, at least, as having
bad "unfortunate experiences." It is
juat possible that the Herald ha*
hare misread our last issue aad is
making ua responsible for the utterance* ol the "Chronicle" which, considering tbe already too grievous
burden of our offences is hardly fair.
But supposing we had described
previous Ladysmith journals a* "fail
urn," what then? The Herald begin* with the late Mr. Graham* and
tbe "Leader". Perhaps the Herald
ia right in stating that Mr. Duns
muir furnished the entire plant and
■took, and paid Mr. Grahamc salary of $150100 a month., It may alao be true that Mr. Graham* "quit
Ladysmith financially much better
than he went there." But what haa
that got to do with the failure
success of the "Leader." That particular kind of logic, while it may
please or fool the proprietor of the
Herald, deceives no on* not affected
with the peculiar atmosphere ofthe
office of that Journal. The "Leader'
waa a brack failure. It ceased publication because it could no longer
do business in th* town. How Mr,
Crahiune left the town ha* no more
to do with tha case than tha flower*
that growi in tbe spring.
Now we come to Mr. Thompson sndj
tb* "Recorder". Thompion," says
tb* Herald' ln rather questionable
taate, "personally did well ln Ladyamlth. H* seldom paid bis printers
and other bills and finally faded
away." Thl* may be tbe Herald'*
way of describing _ Journalistic success, but the Standard prefers tbe
use of the term "failure." Furthermore, we were acquainted with Mr.
Thompson, and hi* version was not
exactly that of "fading away." HI*
•tory was that _ party whom lt ia
needless to mention, got in behind
him and gave Um the dirty push.
We are not concerned with that point
Just now end only mention It lnol-
Next come* th* "Ledger." Her*
again there Is more ground to argue
about terms than about tbe actual
facts. Nothing has ever appeared in
the Standard that could in any
shape be twisted into an insinuation
that the proprietor* of tb* Ledger
had loat money or loft the town In
debt. What I* undenlablo Is that
they saw a chonoe of doing better
business In Nanaimo and took It. No
on*, and least of sit the Editor of
the Standard ls fool enough to blame
them for that.
- Now to far from the Standard having described tbe Ledger, either in
It* daily or weekly form as a flnan-
eial failure, quite-the reverse ia thc
 1_a Ledger at on* time   (Hd
city.1 Tha Standard ws* itb* result ot*

It is many years slnoe a long distance race was bold ln the city so
that practically every man entering

lt is Impossible to get any true line
on the running athletes. In a long
distance race so many elements enter
that It is very hard to pick a winner.
Much depends on the course and
the exigencies of the moment. It is
not always th* fastest man that
wins the race, nor the strongest man
for good judgment and staying power
aro strong factors that determine tho
winner as the race develops*.
Tho course, which has been detailed
before in these columns, Is such that
will likely detor nny very good time
being made. Sevoral big hills are
encountered and tho going in some
places, especially on Comox Road, la
none of tho best, as tho runners cannot use tho sidowalk but must keep
the roud all tho way. At the start
and finish, also the runners hnve the

from making good time. Taken Into
consideration, also Hint there aro

ers here very good time will be made
Indeed if the winning time Is' within
32 or 33 minutes.

nnd finished comparatively strong.
Several are ' training for the event
and nn interesting race may be expected. The five-mile race ls not a
particularly killing race, is -a more
sensible race than the longer race*,
and there should be many ontrles.
Needless to sny the event will do
much for long distance racing In

TOKIO, Aug. 12.—Count Okiruuma
in an interview published by   Hoch,
attributes the present naval   expansion polities of the United States to
the sudden rise of Japan to the   importance of a world power.  The interview says in part: (
Judging    from   tho   fragmentary
speeches of   President Roosovelt   as'
they have been transmitted here, it ■
is not dilUcul. to infer that the aug- j
mentation   of the United States navy in tho Pacific is directed at   Japan."
Count Okimuma doubts that the
views and ideas of President Roosevelt will long continue to govern
public opinion in America.

HONGKONG, Aug. 12. — In a report issued today from tho headqua/
tors of the government relief station
it is stated that advices from South,
en 1 China give details of appalling
conditions among the victims of tho
recYiit typhoon which laid waste un
immense territory along tho coast!
and killed thousands of natives. I
The report says that move than
1^.,600,000. refugees are at the point
of death from exposure and starvation and'that mnny thousands huve
succumbed since the disaster.
The tales of hardship and destitution are pitiful in the oxtreme.
Scores of refugees in all quarters are
without shelter of any kind, forced
to spend days nnd nights huddled to
gether like storm-bound sheep. In
some districts there is only sufficient
food to supply ono meal a day.
More torrible nre tho conditions in
other localities where thoro is absola
toly no food and tho people are piled
in heaps, no means for their burial
being possible.
