In roplv I doslre to say that I was
not a mombor of the 'co-oporatlvo

in any connection whatevor at that
period, and, In fact was not in this
at tho porlod of which ho speaks.
The statement is Just as untrue as
it is possible for any; statoment to
be, and is simply anothor instance
that the Socialist leaders aro prepared to make public statements
without any knowledge of their being correct. When I becamo interested ln tho co-operative store in Nanaimo, some yoars after it had become bankrupt at tho request of a
fow gentlemen who wero at that timo
trying to restore the institution, and
on account of my experience in' cooperative movements in England, requested me to Join tho bankrupt Society which wns thon in tho hands of

Court Judge at Nanaimo. I agreed,
ovon undor those conditions to purchase tho stock of James Wallace, an
old Nanaimo miner, who is now llv-
90 per cent, ol' tho property owners?
If they have not signed tills second

Mr. G. Wilson says lie 1ms beon

CHEESE BOX ROMANCES PROHIBITED.
OTTAWA, April 8.-Hon. Fisher's
bill to amend the Inspection and
Sale Act, now before parliament declares it an offence to put any foreign substance whatever into cheese,
or to incorporate any inferior curd
or cheese therein, penalties to apply
against any one who either manufactures or deals in theso inferior
products.
This bill puts a check to cheese-
box romances which have attracted
some attention in tho old country.
It has been found that glass bottles were slipped into the centre ot
the cheese by romantic Canadian
dairy maids. This has caused complaint from purchasers in the old
country.

THE CHANGES IN THE BRITISH
CABINET.
LONDON, Aprll 8.-Tht latest information in well-informed circlet
points to the strong possibility ol
the retirement ol Lord Loreburn,
Lord High Chancellor, who it is understood, does not stand very high
in the estimation of Asquith, and
the appointment of R. B. lloldane,
secretary of state for war, to this
post, with a  peerage attachment.
It is known that Mr. Haldono is
ready to leavo tho war olllce. He
would have liked to have become
chancellor of the exchequer, but it is
apparent that David Lloyd-George,
president of the Board of Trade, has
the keys to that olllce in his pocket.
In the event of Mr. Haldane going
tothe upper houss, Winston Church,II, undor secretary of the colonial
olllce, will most likely get tht war
office, which would be much more
congenial to him than the board ol
trade.
Loudon, April 8.—It ls officially
announced thut King Edward will
leave Biarritz on April 15, In order
to have a, privy council in London.
The new ministers probably will have
their flrst audience on this occasion
al It Is understood that Mr. Asquith
was able to submit a Ust of his
appointments to Ids majesty
this morning.
Mr. Asquith Is expected In London

An unbiased canvass of the situation leads to the conclusion that

to be evenly divided between Taft

Hughes. Various estimates are made

foemen in. the battle for tho championship. Nanaimo undoubtedly has

In any other previous season it
would havo secured the championship almost without an effort. It has
always'been particularly strong In
defence and it has now strengthened
both the middle nnd attacking lines.

Advantages.
But; formidable as Is Nanaimo's
array, there-is no cause for dismay.
The Champions aro In great shape,
and can play great football. Moreover, they have advantages which
perhaps are greator than mere science
or skill. Thore is only ono spirit in
all the eleven players. The boys are
all on the very best of terms, and
their loyalty to the Club, and to tho
town is beyond all question. Thoir
feeling on the gamo is as keen
that of any of their supporters. Thoy
are fighting bohind old traditions under the spur ot the sharpest rivalry.
Such a feeling is a greater force in
a game than more skill or cleverness
Evenly Matched.
It must not be gathored from all
this that I regard the Nanaimoites
as the cleverer aggregation of the
two, or that I consider tholr class of
football superior to that of the locals. Not at all. Either individually
or collectively tho champions are a
match for their rivals. Two moro"
evenly matched teams it would bo
bad to find. I have been seeking for
a deciding advnntugs, and I think
you havo got It in the spirit of cam-

i "There has also been agitation out
there to change the length of regis-,
tration for , players on teams entering the competition from 28 to 8
days, Nothing,, however, has corns
of this, but at .the matter stands tht
Nanaimo team are said to have signed nt, the pick of the players from
ths various coast teams.
Dr. Ings was overheard to say that
II there,is any underhand and unsportsmanlike wiirk by tho British
Columbia clubs to get the shield, he
would pack It up and send It home,
regardless of anybody, and 1st them
enter a lawsuit to get it. This at
least he thinks, would have the effect of bringing matters to a head,
ami show the donatore ot the shield
what an unsatisfactory condition
matters art in.
"Whatever else may bs said, the
fact is obvious that ths footballers
out at the Pacific coast have undoubtedly been iplaying all details in
connection with thl competition Into their own hands.
"There it not even a representative of any other club oh the committee. Surely the title holders at
least should have a say in the arranging of tbt rules governing tht,
competition?
"However, at long at lt It governed In the tllp-shod, haphazard manner that it it at presont, tho bad
feeling over tht People Shield will
continue to exist.
"Ths sooner a representative body
Irom every province In Canada get
together and frame a conttltutlon
of thoroughly sound rules and regulations, the better for all club* concerned and football in. general all
over Canada." "
Calgary Is rather hatty In tiaUtr
nig of underhand mothods. It, It.
not known here how Calgary    cap-
fairs as thoy have always carried Society,
them on—in a sportsmanlike «nan-
for no underhand work has been
attempted by tho local boys. How
utterly ridiculous to say that the
locals have signed on the pick of tho
players from tho coast. Calgary
must imagine there's very few good
men down this way. They'll flnd
that the locals, Ladysmith and the
Thistles have teams that will ■ give
them the run of their lives. Coast
footballers admit that there's a flaw
in the constitution regarding registering players aud soon the
er it is remedied the better for B.C.
football, To compote for the People's Shield a player has to be a
resident of his city at least SO days.
The men who play for Nanaimo have
all been here that time, many for
many months and yeart. Those who.
came here came of their own free
will. So whore does the underhand
work come in? What is more, when
each team in British Columbia is
keen on capturing the trophy, is it
likely that any underhand methods
would be allowed by the others oven
if it were attempted? If all reports
are to be believed, Calgary is signing on men from different parts of
Alberta, and going into the Pass
football stronghold. and securing
good men. It they get them registered in time thore is no kick coming here. It was also up to the
Caledonians of Calgary, as holders
of the shield to see that they had tt
Representative en the committee.
Thoy nro boglnnlng to kick now
bout seven or eight British Columbia
teams being run against them, as a
matter of fact only four teams of
Urltish Columbia will play; but even
if seven or eight did play, have they
not a right to? If not there is
change in the ruling.

Said Justicu Cassuls would go

commissioner, and suspension wus
not tho result of that report. - Fra-

The Japanese legation also was

A court of inquiry has been ordered by M. Kato, tlio Japanese consul general at Mukden, and a full

It Is hoped that this Investigation
will lead to an acceptable explanation and proper reparation. A detailed account of the incident Just

it is said ho offered no apology, and

Vanoouver, April 9.—"The Liberal
party of today has departed from
Its principl 8," was the keynote of
Aid. McMillan's speech before the
Asiatic Excldsion League last night.
It was the regular meeting of the
original league, but the attendance
wat small.
Aid. McMillan said that God made
the Hindus, and fitted India for
them. He did not bring thom to
Canada; tho C.P.lt. did that. Ho
expressed the opinion that every
crisis brought out a man to deal
with it. So far thatmanhad not
appearedin British Columbia and
the only way to settle tho matter
was - elect men to olllce pledged to I
Asiatic exclusion. He was a Liberal, and Intemlod to vote Liberal
principles If he had a chanco, but
the Liberal party of today had .not
lived up to its principles.
J. P. McConnell said that the
people In the cast had a wrong im
presslon of the league and thought
it was opposed to white Immigration. What wns wanted was legislation, and not riots r.nd parades.
Sam Gothard attempted to speak

"Lionol Terry is an expensive luxury, He is costing this colony almost as much as a cabinet minister.

doubt he Is well supplied with nourishing literuturo, und hat plenty of
Pons and papor to write his daily

box of good cigars.
This pampered lunatic—if he isa

BALTIMORE, April S.-Today Is
an Important anniversary ln the
history of tho Roman Catholic
Church in the United States. It was
just one hundred years ago, that tho
archdiocese of Baltimore was established. At tho same time four important dioceses (now archdioceses)
wero constituted, as.follows: New
York, with Bishop Concannon as
Its first bishop; Boston, with Bishop
f'hjcvorus as its first bishop; Philadelphia, with Bishop Egon as its
first bishop; nnd Bardstown, Ky.
with Bishop Flnget as its first bis
hop.
Trinr to this Important event there
wns but ono Catholic bishopric In
the United States. Bishop Carroll,
who was appointed ns the first American bishop in 1700, hod the en-
tiro country for hiB diocese. Ono hun
dred years ago thero wero not over
sixty rntliolle priests in tho United
States and not more than seventy
churches. The nowly established
metropolitan seo of Baltimore, with
Bishop Carroll nt its head, and tlio
four suffragan sees nl Boston, Now
York, Philadelphia anil narditown,
constituted tho Catholic church organization of tho United States.
Up tn tho days whon the. Irish famine of 18-17 brought thousands of
Immigrants to swoll the Catholic population of tho country, one metropolitan see, that of Baltimore, and
one blphoprio sufficed for the entire
country. But before 1850 the num-
bor of bishoprics had Increased to
ovor twenty. Today the 11,000,000
communicants of tlio Catholic church
in the United States nro looked after
by fourteen archbishops end ninety
bishops. Tho number of priests ox-
coed fifteen thousand and there aro
moro than twelve thousand churches.

Ottawa. April 7.—Two sessions ago
the Commons Agricultural Committee passed a resolution suggesting
that Hon, Fisher should associate
himself with several provincial ministers of agriculture and proeeed to
England to interview the British
board, and induce them il possible to
remove the embargo on Canadian
cattle, but according to the return
brought down by Fisher yesterday,
ho has dono nothing for the reason
that in view ol tho repeated ropre-1
sentations made by tho Dominion
government, and the persistent refusal of the British government to
amend the existing law to admit importation of live cattle into the
United Kingdom, such action will,
in hls opinion, be both futile and
undignified.
Somo important amendments to
the Yukon Placer Mining Act are
embodied in a bill which was presented to Commons by Oliver yesterday. "Creok" is defined to be
water courso less than 150 feet
wide on an average. Caveatts filed
against a claim shall lapse at tho
end of ft month unless proceedings
he taken in court to establish cave-
ntto' title. Provision is made for
mining on townsites known to con-
tola gold.,
Boundnry lines on claim of creek
or river are to be run in same direction that is parallel or at right angles to base line of creek..
In ense of two discoverers, claims
of greater sl?e than ordinary may

Hereafter full fee for removal from

DO NOT WANT ANiY
MYTHOLOGICAL NAMES.
NEW YORK, April 10.—A storm
of protest haa been raised by tbe inhabitants of the borough of Queens
because Mayor McClellan and the
Board of Aldermen wish to name 50
new streets ln that borough after
mythological gods and goddesses.
The clergy branded the proposal   as
absurd and ridiculous" and pointed
out the fact that many of tha old
Greek and Roman dleties were dr-
ectly helpful for educational purposes
that the names would serve aa an
inspiration to the younger generation to tbe study of tho classics.
The matter was warmly debated
until "Little Tim" Sullivan, the
Bowery leader, took a hand and
said he would not stand for the
naming    of the streets for such    a
bunch of dead ones." It was then
voted to put real live names on tha
lamp poeta.
The body of tho young sailor who
was drowned off tho T. Wharf so

fishing for Cod when his hook
caught in the clothes of tho dead
mon. The body was frightfully decomposed, and was tied up waiting
the arrival of Cornor Davis and undertaker Hilbert.

that although the act, generally

Carnegie, only daughter ol the steel
magnate and heiress to his millions,
is again able to romp and play a-
bout like other children. Two years
ago tho little heiress, who was then
nine years old, was playing on the
lawns of Skibo castle, her father's
summer residence in the Highlands
of Scotland, when she caught her
foot ln a small hole and fell to the
ground, spraining her ankle. Although tho accident did not seem serious at ths time it was soon found
necessary to place tho leg in a steel
bracewhich has had to be worn ever
sines. It waa feared at first that
the sprain might develop Into a permanent lameness, but New York's
leading doctors were consulted, and
after the most careful treatment during which the young heiress
obliged to give up all play for
year, she hes recovered and Is
strong and well as ever again.

still raging. The whole shore line
for miles ou both sides of the mouth
of the Hlralco creek, west of the city

up for twenty feet back The mouth

way 100 yards further Inward than
ever before, and families have been
taken out of their cottages In boats.
