(To the Editor.)
Dear Sir-Jn reply to Messrs. Crr
ind Irvine, who have crltifcized my
attendance nt the meetings of the
fuotlall committee, I beg to say that
they certainly should he cognUanh ol
the fact that since the fittce-rii ot
December 1W)S, there have been no
regular meetings held by ihe committee; any meetings since that date
were convened at the call of the many
ager.
Ot course, betore that date, they
met every Tuesday, and I think the
minute book will prove that 1 wa
one of the most regular attendants at
those meetings.
They are also aware ot thc tact
that the team selected to play on
some ot the schedule games was not
always chosen at .those meetings,, but
when necessary, that part of the.Jmsi-1
ness was' leid^cver until the Thursday cr Friday night following.
Now, Mr. Editor, It was on Thursday night lhat I expected the team
wouldle picked that was to play
against Nanaimo, and by that time
loth Morrison and Adam would probably have been in condition to play.
Ot course we now know that Morrison would not. It Is exceedingl
strange that a team to play in a fix-
tore ol such great importance-should
he selected without a lull meeting of
the committee being present at the
selection thereof, and I am in a Position to state that the. manager, like
myself, did not think that the team
would.be picked before Thursday, or
ho would have made arrangements tc
to: there.
As I have not been attending the
games lately, Messrs. On and Irvine
will coincide with me in the statement that I have refrained from voting on any of the names placed in
nomination tor the different positions,
until tho 81st of January, when 1
gave the casting vote for ttic centre
position. However, Adam's injury in
the Esquimau game prevented him
from playing-, and his absence in that
game, in my opinion, and also in the
opinion of a great many spectators
lost us the game and ultimately the
Pacific Coast League championship.
Messrs. Orr and Irvine say I ought
to have been In Nanaimo to sec thc
game. WelT; I might ask those gentlemen why they did not 1%) to Victoria to see the Pacific Coast League
game, the Vancouver game, tine Seattle gameL jbut 1 won't. •
I was somewhat surprised at the
statement made by Messrs. Orr and
Irvine to the effect that Mr. Mc
Dowcllgave Paddy Hewitt all that
was coming, to him. I suppose? by
this phrase they mean that lie tumbled Paddy in the mud several times,
but, in my opinion, one might tumble Paddy in the bay, and he would
came out smiling;, provided he got (th
ball, and if I have not been greatly
misinformed, this happened to. be the
result nine times out oJ[ every ten
that Mr. McDowell and the redoubtable Paddy met.
Further, Mr. Editor, those two-
gentlemen, I have no doubt, will agrco
with me in saying that there is a
vast diJercnce in attacking and defending a goal. In defending,.a player must clear his goal by playing the
ball as much as possible, especially
is this so inside the penalty area
where excessive charging by the de-
tender will be penalized and also
sometimes when the charging is very
mild, (as take tbe penalty against A.
Morrison in the final game for lhe
\. I. championship in Victoria last
season.) Certainly a good deal depends upon the referee. An attacking
player can hang on to the ball until
the opposing back comes up tfldispo-
sess him of it, then he plays thc man-
'instead of the ball and provided thc
back intends playing the ball he. gets
all that is coming to him, that is,
he ;iets the bail and a seat in the
mud; hut sealing poor Pat in the
mud did not get goals, and- goals
count. Hoping you can find space, for
th:s explanation, I am, your respectfully, : W. G. SIMPSON.
Ladysmith, B.C., February-18, UW9.
Mclntyre Foundry Co., L'd
The constantly increasing demand for the product
of the Mclntyre foundry Company has made it imperatively necessary to secure more capital to carry
on .the business of the company successfully. The
business is one which is indissolubly linked with the
future of Ladysmith, and it is to the interests of the
citizens that the capacity of the company should be
increased to the extent that it will be able to meet
the demand consequent upon ihe rapid development
nowtaking~place on Vancouver Island. It is proposed to increase the'%tpital stock $10,000, which
will supply ample fufis to meet the proposed increase in the capacity, of the foundry and the necessary working capital. Trlr-. J. Brown, of Victoria, is
now canvassing for stock, and is meeting with encouragement from ev*erj quarter. The business is
being carefully conducted, and if necessary the best
of references can be given, by inquiring at the foundry, where also information as to what is now being
done in the way of business can be secured. An investment in stock in this concern should prove a profitable one for the investor, and the enlargement of
the foundry means a great deal to Ladysmith.

(To thef Editor.)
Dear Sir—I see by your issue of
February ,17th, that Mr. Watterson
has taken offence at my criticism oi
the selecting committee iu preferring
Mr. McDowell as full 'back before;
Adam,
Now, Mr. Editor, I gave it as my
opinion that Adam had the best
qualifications for the position, and
surely the most bigoted partisan in
any clique will grant mc that. It
also seems to be the opinion of Messrs. Orr and Irvine, ns they state
that he had been asked to play that
position,, but had declined.    -'
Mr. Watterson also wants to know
why I. take the columns of the public prc-s in which to express my
opinion. II Mr. Watterson reads the
first item on the fifth column of thc
last i'sue ot The Chronicle he will
get his answer.
If Mr. Watterson is not aware of
tho tact, I beg to inform him that
I, for one, am not in the habit of
criticizing any person at the street
corners, but will express my opinion
where the party or parties interested
can defend themselves.
With reference to Adam's experience
in foofball, if I am, not greatly mistaken, he was playing, football when
Mr. McDowell was at school,, that is
thirteen years ago, and it is not • an
unlucky thirteen either.
To my knowledge Adam has also
played five games at lull back, one in
Ladysmith, two in Cumberland, and
one each in Vancouver end Victoria,
all of which were won by the team in
which he played.
In conclusion, Mr. Editor, I beg tn
inform Mr. Watterson that I do not
take any interest in loot racing anl
as I did not not mention suced in myV
letter, intending any disparagement,
ot Mr, McDowell's ability, in that re-
s;:ect, I hope Mr. Watterson's feathers, which seem to have been raised
like a cockatoo's crest, will resume
(heir normal fdt'm. I am yours respectfully, W. G. SIMPSON.

The attendance at the re&ular meeting of the Citizens' League last
Thursday evening was not as large as
usual.
in tho absence of President Dier,:
Mr, V. B. Harrison took the chair.
The minutes bl the previous meeting of the Citizens' League and
Board of Trade were adopted. |
Mr. Wilson reported that lie ha.i
written to the secretary of Ike Alaska-Yukon exhibition pointing out
the eiror with regard lo thc omission of Ladysmitli, and he hud been
informed that the error would be reo,
tilled. f,
Secretary" Wilson brought up the
question of shade trees-, lie advocated, the planting of cherry trees. He
believed it would be a gcod advertise-,
ment for the city. Thc cost would
not be much, varying in price from
:<i to 75 cents. The objection' would
be'ralsed that the boys would destroy tlicm. He outlined a plan by
which he believed that this woiild.be
avo'ided. His plan was in line with
that recently adopted by the authorities in certain eastern cities. Mr.
Wilson believed the plan" would work
well here. Mr. Harrison offered valuable suggestions with regard to the
protection of shade trees. He e ndors,'
ed Mr, Wilson's views and invited discussion.
Mr. Theodore Bryant told some!
thins about the growth of the cherry

sentiments cf the League.
, A committee composed   of Messrs.
Bryant, Stewart and Harrison were
appointed to wait, upon the council.

It is claimed that Mr. Cook brought
a number of Americans into Canada
to work in his Kaslo mill. Mr. John-'

workingmen, .first applied to the ai-
torncy-gcncral and then to two judges ot the supreme court, lor leave to

ho was afraid that the danger of destruction would be quite as great
from old bojs as young boys. The
cherry tree was a fragile tree, and
difficult to bring to its fullest fru>
ion.
It was brought up that the- big
roots of poplar trees might interfere
with the sewers, but it was urged
that the sewers would be in the alleys. '
Mr. John Stewart was iti favor ol
maple trees, but he did not wont to
deprecate Mr. Wilson's efforts to ar-
ri.e at a reasonable conclusion,
Cherry trees would cost a great deal.
Mr. Wilson could'not fall in line

cherry tree could be grown cnsily.
Why not have a- tree that was useful
p.s well as ornamental?
Mr. Stewart admitted thai this

would go forth that Ladysmitli was

UMr. Theodore Bryant introduced the
subject of the septic tanks in con
nection with the founding ol the sewers. He had made an examination
of the plans in the city clerk's office
and now kpew whereof he spoke. He
explained at length tl:e plr.n ot the
septic, tank and believed it would
cost $6,fl|K>. He coul not see why
an eight inch pipe would not cairy
the sewerage rut to the deep water
He would like to have expert informal ii n on the subject, and possibly
a gie.it savin j- might result.
It was asked if Mr. Mohun had
ever given reasons why a septic tank
should be used.
Mr. John Stewart believed be was
familiar with all the correspondence
between the council and Mr. Mohun
He had heard tho railway objected to
the crude sewerage running under tho
tracks. He believed a- communication;
addressed to tho council would bring
forth all (the information possessed by
that l.ody.
Severn! opinions were expressed
with regard to the city's rights in
regard to constructing the sewers. It
seemed to some of thc speakers that
the matter of building the sowers had)
not been thotoughly gone into hy

attention of thc council should to directed to a thorough consideration ot
tho subject. There would havo to tbe
an cxcavat'Vm lor a d^inch pipo to

Judging by .the trine of the discing

quite evident that there ate a number ol ratepayers who are not altogether satisfied with the construction
ol a septic tank as p. method ot disposing ol the sewerage. The opinion
seems to prevail that septic tanVs
have not proved successful in the cities where they have been tested, and
II this happens tc be the case, it
would be well Ior the city council,to
make a change in tho plans at once.
The Chronicle is in the same position
as the citizens generally; It has no
reliable information on the sul,(;ct,
but It would very much regret to sec
,the city spend 85,000 a.r Sfi.OOO on a
tank that might prove wcrthlcss.
What is wanted is investigation   on
The authorities of the Chemainus
Hospital request the publication of
the following report of their annual
meeting: ."
Thc tenth annual meeting of thc
Chemainus General Hospital Association was held in the Chemainus Hall
Tuesday evening, February -1th. The
rcpoi't oi Or. II. B. Rogers, rip'.'.cnt
physician showed that the total number ot hospital days during 1908 wcr)
2,854, as compared to 3,708 in lttty,
this very considerable decrease being
accounted lor by U.e tact tbat thc
log. »-"»g camps ot thc Victoria '.Lumbe^
,nl Manufacturing Company and the
Crofter, smelter were closed down
during thc entire year, and that the
hospital did the amoint of work set
forth by Dr. Rogers' report is a matter for surprise and is ample evidence
of thc growing popularity in the district,
D.i Rogers reminded the Borid ot
lhe urgent need ol a maternity ward
and nurses' home and it is tho intcn.
tion tc make these addition* just as
soon as finances will permit.
In view of the decrease in hospital
uorlc during the past year the report ot*Vnc secretary was most grati-
f,ing, accounts in 1H08 having been
met and the large balance due en
heating plant installed in 1907 having been wiped out.
Cn motion a vote ot thanks was
passed to His Honor tho Lieutenant-
Governor for a supply ol coal diring
the year. Also the Woman's Auxiliary, Mr. Lewis C. Hall and Dr.
Frost, Ior their kind assistance In
many ways, and also to the employees ol the Victoria Lumber Company nnd the stevedores of ''he n.iin-
us, who, (cr a period of six months,
doubled their monthly subscript!jns
to the hospital. Had it not been for
this timely assistance there l« little
doubt but that th" statement Ior
1908 would have shown a Jcrkus deficit.

Quest: "How comes this dead fly

Waiter; 'Tn fact sir, I Jiaye no
positive idea how tbe poor thing cams.
by its death. Perhaps it had not
taken any food for a long time, dashed upmn the soup, ate too "much of it/
and contracted inllnmnlion ''of the
stomach that brought on death. Thc
fly must have had a weak constitution, for when I served up the soup
it was dancing merrily on the surface-
Perhaps—and the idea presented itself
only at this moment—it endeavored
to swallow too large a piece of vegetable; this, remaining fast in thc
throat causing a choking in the winds

They were trying an Irishman,

"Have you any one in court who

"Yis,--your honor," quickty responded the Colt. "There's the sheriff there."'
Whereupon tha sheriff evinced signs
of great amazement. "Why, your honor," declared he, "I don't even know
the man!"
"Observe, your honor," said the
Irishman, triumphantly — VHserve

BrooMield pondered for a moment.
"Consult a Vet.," was his answer.
It is toid of the late Hon. Martin
1. Willdns,i in pre-Confederation days
Attorney-General' of Nova Scotia,
that on one occasion when stumping
ill Pictou County, lie stopped over'
night in thc hotnc of a good Presbyterian brother, who before retiring,
requested the politician to lead in
family prayer.   Here was a poser.
The Attorney-General (says the
Frefiericton Herafd, in toiling thc
story) was not noted as a religious
man, and probably had -not madel
a public prayer in" hys life. What
was he to do) To decline the service
reijucstc'd of him, was probably to
lose apolitical support in that strong
Presbyterian community, and to go
ahead with it was, lie/eared, likely
to make himself njppeai' ridiculous.
But-be got out of the .difficulty ;)i
rather p. novel' way. As be told the
story himself, it was put thus:
"I could not pray in public, anil
that was necessarily part of tlio service, btit with a happy inspiration
when my kind host handed mc tho
family Bible, L turned up Psalm
CXIX, and read Irom it until everybody was asleep, and then made my
exit to bed:" ...
Fumy tilings do happen in Westminster; That quaint little town that
sits on tlie side of a hill, and with
its eltows on its knees gazes hopefully at the Frase.i' River, usually takes
itself so seriously that cue docs not
look for smiles—except during tbe lacrosse season.
But. the other day something funny
happened that tickled (lie whole ol
Columbia avenue. An inhabitant
called—Jerry,_is never known to' refuse a "treat" and he generally hang?
around lhe hotels enough to come in
for his share—or more. Cm recent
cold day when indoors was partially inviting and proved a line excuse
for "hanging roundi" Jerry dropped

THE QUALITY HOUSE
' Start the new year right and have your, watoh overhauled. Just think of it, th.
balance of your watch make, about 18,001) vibrations per hour, for every hour of tbe
year; that it rotate, on.pivots only -05 millimeters in diameter, or about the equal of a
good sized human hair, also that all the oil it can retain for running purpose, is about
the one ono-thousandth of a drop.
Give tho watch a chance tnd have it thoroughly overhauled. Alway. go to the
brat man, aa cheap work on such delicate mechanism a. that if a watch i. always dear
in the long run, and usually causes ruin. We do all kind, of repair., from the converting of the key wiuder into a setm winder to Die ordinary work of cleaning, Etc. None
but the but material, used. We have not only served the usual apprcnuccliip at onr
trade, but have also had the advantage of a thorough atudy of the watoh and scicntfio
mechanic.', at the Canadian Horologtcal Institute, acknowledged the best on the American Continent, a place where every part of a watch is made by hand under the direction
of experts. Now, i. not one who ha. had tliis training, more capable of thoroughly repairing your watch than one who knows littio or nothing about the principles involved,
who just picked hi. trade up, a. so many have. All we ask is a fair trial. Our price,
are correct, and flie work fully guaranteed. We can make and repair any. part of a
watch from barrel to balance.-     .   ' >■
