Mrs. Annie Stevens, wrote Uic council that s!.e was prepared to lay. a,

the First Avcriue side of her premises to Gatacre street, providing thc
council defrayed a certain portion ot
the cost.
This proposal brought forth considerable discission, on recount cf the

Aid. Campbell "jelicvcd it was the"
duty of thc council to encourage improvements of this character as much
as possible. ^Possibly the .matter
could le arranged by the council offering to pay so much per loot..
Aid. Dier drew attention to the
fact thct sooner or Inter the walk
would have toshe continued to Roberts street, and thc council would un.
doubtedly put down ;a wood sidewalk.

the council discussed thc question in
all its tarings, and it was finally decided to grant permission to build 0

It must be confessed that there was
some disappointment at the result of
the game.between Ladysmith and- Nanaimo last Sunday. It was believed
by tnany that Ladysmith would wii
but all hopes were in vain. The Nanaimo Free Press concludes a lengthy review of the) game, which is ad
milted to be absolutely without 1,'ias,
s follows:
As for the play, thc game had only
teen in progress a few minutes when
more than spry and is deserving ol
the highest praise.
Graham has been seen to better
advantage, but he held his wing and
was to toho fore in more than ono
angerous scrimmage. For the rest,
II the men played for all they were
worth. As usual "Cruickshaiiks was
the most prominent of the forwards,
and put in a lot of useful work,
which was not very often turned to
much account. The same thing applies even more to Billy McGwire.
Billy is perhaps even more tricky
than Frank, which is saying a whole
lot, and he played like a Trojan.
But his work was mostly wasted,
i.nl he would have done better if he
had swung the ball to the other wing
oftener than he did. McDowell toulu
do nothing against Paddy, and his
ineffectiveness only served to recall
tho great personal ilueis of Paddy
and Grainger.
Rogers played a great game, at
right hack for the visitors. He is
not as spectacular as. Paddy, but he
,,5 every whit as effective as Joe
Blundcll can testify. He is a great
catch. Yesterday he ne'er made a
mistake, and again and again came
to the rescue of his side. Morrison
is better on dry ground, but there
was no fault to be found w'th his
play. Altogether it was a great
game; and on the home side at least,
there was not a failure on thc team.

has been suggested that a company

method of tendering. It was pointed
out that sometimes a corporation
cou.d buy material cheaper than a
contractor, and the impression pro!
, vailed generally that it would he better to have thc tenders made in two
forms—one for the. work as a whole,
and the other separate tenders for
material and work.
Aid. Dier thought that tenders
might be called for tho electric light
plant at the same time.
Mr,yor Nicholson pointed opt that
there would have to be more preliminary work done, such as selecting
a site, before it would be advisable
to call tor tenders for building the
lighting plant.
In reply to a question as to the
acinic tank,, the mayor made an In-
tercst'ng explanation, viz., that thc
proposed tank was simply a place in
which to destroy the refuse, so that
the cost of carrying it out to the water would be minimized,
It was moved, seconded and carried, that tenders be called lor the
construction of sewers, one. tender .to

and tho other tender tor labor ajono;

thc ball to Hooper who without any
demur put It through. Of course it
was a fluke, hut it counted and never another point was tallied. The
visitors strove with might and main
to get through, and the home boys
ought just as desperately to keep
them' out while the forwards did
everything they knew and could do
to add to tiie lone score: Just how
desperate the struggle was it is difficult to give any idea of. Perhaps
Hewitt could do it 'better than anybody else. Ptddy was the focus
fo'lnt of every rush by thc. visiting
forwards. He was a rushing, charging tornado, diving in feet first, head
first, rJl- ways and in the nick of
time. There was not a pool on
the ground that Paddy did not sample, and hardly a square foot from
which he did not take samples home
with him, He had McDowell beaten
lo a kazzle, and when danger threatened from the other wing he charged
over there, and if ho did not end up
with a seat on an opposing forward
he was willing to bo sat on. When
it comes to spectacular play Paddy
certainly hands out thc goods.
The first half ended, and v'.ic visiters in turn got the advantage of thc
est end from which to shoot. For
wenty minutes the visiting forwards

to get   a   hitch in   his pants, (and

Cruiokshanks   had   two   shots,   and

was'only the old'story repeated.  The
defence was too strong and all'  the
efforts of   ths Ladysmith   forwards
were abortive.   As hard a game  as
had   ever been seen on   the   cricl.«t
grounds ended in favor of the home

How Forest Wealth
Has Been Squandered
At revivalist meetings the. converted drunkard and the reformed thief
arc often put forward as great attractions. They are object lessons,
and as such they appeal in a practical way to their audiences. One of
these practical object lessons has
just bcon given to CaniYta. In an address, which he delivered before the
Canadian Club at Ottawa, Earl Grey
mentioned lhat Dr. Gilford Pinchot
was the bearer of a letter from the
President of the United States to
himself and to Sir Wilfrid, inviting
Canada to take part in an international commission on the conservation of natural resources. Dr. Pin.
chot afterwards addressed the Club.
Thc moral of his address was Exper-
to crede. Tlie United States, in the
position of a ivodigai who has squan
dered his inheritance, implores Canada
to take thought for the morrow and
to be warned by- the example of her
The United States, somewhat lats
in thc day, has been taking stock and
theicsult has been most disconcerting to the people of that country.
The wty essence obfoxrestry is a.lopg
look ahead. You cannot deal with a
slow-growing crop like a forest with>
out taking at least one century into
consideration. When, therefore, the
people of the United States had completed an inventory of their forest
wealth, and realized how recklessly it
had been squandered, it was but natural thit they should turn their
thoughts to kindled problems relative
to the stores of fuel and other resources on which future generations of
Americans will have to depend. The
first step was the appointment of a
waterways commission, and the second a great convention in Washington of the governments of thc United
States in thc American Union, at
whicih both the outgoing and incoming administrations were committed
thoroughly to the policy of conservation. The first work of tip National
Conservation Commission was to
prepare an inventory of tho natural
resources of the country—to take
stock of all that remained. Dr. Pinchot, in his address, summarised thc
result of the Commission's investigations.
"We discovered," he said, ''that
thc preventable waste in our coal
supplies amount to some S300,ooo,-,
Otti every year;   that   if   wc go   on
powers, whi.h are at present largely
going to waste.
"We found that our water poweis
were in process of being monopolized
by two cr three great companies—
that our water powers, east and'
west, south and north,-,, were ijcing
acquired as rapidly, as these wise and
far-seeing men -could get hold of
them, and were thus in danger of being monopolized when our coal sup.
plies were. e'Xher exhausted or so depleted as to have greatly risen in
price, in the hands of one of tbe
most far-reaching and oppressive
monopolies that lias ever existed on'
thc face of the earth."
The seriousness of the situation is
-seen at ence when wc reflect that in
any country where fuel is scarce, as
in California, after oil is gone,
every source of power must, as far
as we.can at present sec, ccrtne from
the streams. Some day, no doubt,
every railway train, all lighting ami
heating ol houses, all 'irrigation
pumping, and all machinery wild be
done by electric power from water.
Therefore, it is all-important that
the control, of the water power
should not pass altogether cut of
the Government's hands. Then
again, the navigable streams of the
United States c0Ver 2C.C00 miles,
and some S5<io,ooo„100 is spent on
rivers and harbors; but in spite ol
that, navigation has declined, and
the lirers are less navigable than
they were fifty years ago, because tbe
soil is beinri washed into them faster
than the Government is able to
dredge it out.
It was found that the less Irom
fire in the United States was Ssuu,-
|ooo,i)l», and tbe fire bill Ior losses

The'loss seems enormous when is is

calculated that there were about
3,000,000 jcople seriously ill in the
United .States with preventable diseases. A man's life: is estimated to
be worth $1,700, and a man's work
is estimated to be worth WO a year.
If three-fourths of the preventable
disease were prevented, there would
en this calculation be a saving of
51.3(0,000 a year.

Tho problem of electrifying thc lines ol, the Canadian Pacific Railway is
one that is nowadays considerably exercising the minds of the heads of
that company, says the Montreal Witness. It is quite evident that the
work cannot yet be started cm a general scale.
. Tha proposal is to make a start by
electrifying the mountain lines, utilizing for this purpose the prodigality
of water power.running to waste*on
thc eastern slope of th: Rockies.
Freezing causes a great diminution of
this power in the winter, and tho
question Is whether Rhat is left
would prove sufficient to operate the
main line during the winter so .sen.

hle ot freezing is net experienced because oi the milder climate. It is ,n,

Editorial Comment.
The city council by resolution paid a» well-deserved
compliment to the retiring city clerk, Mr. John Stewart. The work required of a city clerk is often tvy-

years h« has acted in that office has never had one
unpleasant word with the various council boards
under which he has served, speaks well for his tact
and discretion in discharging the duties of his
Steps have been taken in Toronto fof the formation of the Canada Steel Company. The syndicate
secured a new process of making steel at a fraction
of the present cost, and that, too, from common ore
which is at present plentiful in New Ontario. The
new process will redus* the cost of tool steel from
$1.03 to ten cents a pound. -
Just to demonstrate that there is no such a thing
as politics in the deliberations of the city council,
it was decided to advertise for tenders in two Conservative papers and one Liberal paper. Every alderman disclaimed any desire to give the proceedings
a political color, and no one has any right to doub|
the word of a Ladysmith alderman.
At a Liberal banquet held a few nights ago at
Vancouver, two well known Liberal leaders were
decidedly outspoken in their condemnation ofthe
graft incidental to the distribution ofthe Federal
patronaee in that city. Robert Kelly was accused of
distributing the loaves and fishes without consulting
the Liberal executive.
The Mayor and city council are determined to lose
no time in getting work started on the sewers.. Tenders will be called for the construction of the sewers,
and all the arrangements cmpleted by the time the
money is forthcoming for the debentures. This
means that work should begin early in the spring.
Hon. Wm. Templeman has been elected by acclamation for Comox Atlin. The free and independent
electors of Comox-Atlin will thus be deprived of an
opportunity of listening to the burning words of oratory as they pour forth lava-like from the chaste
lips of William Blakemore.
Under the auspices of the King, there will be
shortly established the Royal British Radium
Institute. The purpose is to facilitate research, and
,in connection therewith -there will be a special department for the treatment of various cases by the
radium cure.

than iu miles oft when they picked
up the liner through the submarine
signals. Changing their course every
time the bells Indicated and at the
same time keeping in touch with each
other to avoid an accident, the two
pntinued on until the liner loomed
out ol the log.

pcraticn. The wireless docs not reveal the direction from which it
; comes. The submarine 'bell, however,
is li'.v. a call in the dark. "1
. These delicate instruments, which
up to now' have been used mainly by
| the liners to pick up the first lightships similarly'equipped along the
I coast, were brought into use a Ijttle
more than three years ago. Two
years ago the White Star line tol-
owed the C'unard in their installation.
' The principle upon which tiicy ate
built Is that a sound.wave under thc
wator travel* at the rate ol 4,700
feet a second as against 1,10(1 feet a
fsecond in the air. Ia Wii6k-j*eather
a foghorn or bell can be beard only
a short distance. The submarine signals can be heard for ten miles, anil
have been picked up at 15 miles.
The apparatus that picks up the
signal is about thc size ot a man's
hat and is attached to the inner sides
ct a ship. It is a box filled with
chemicals, in the chemicals is a mi-
rophone, and from this runs u wire
attached to an ordinary telephone re-
eiver on the bridge. The ap|U'...lus
is in duplicate,, one forward on each
siriq of the vessel, The officer on th
bridge, with the receivers to his ears,
is able to shut oft communication
rom either side.
This apparatus was originally designed to pick up tho lightships along
tie coast, which are equipped with
the submarine hell. The bell is .an
irtight compartment beneath the
water and-strikes regular signals.
Atter the ships are equipped   with
j receivers they are equipped with the
1 ubmarine bell, so that in case they

Alter'the wireless went cut of busies* on the Republic the bell contin-
ed to Jangle,' and this registered  on
he Baltic and Lucania.   By shutting
ol the receivers on one side or   the
ther the captains were able to tell

The Chronicle, had quite nn interest-
ng interview witli ..Mr. VV. Thomas,
Cliicf Engineer of the Northern Oas
and .Power Co., who was in this city
t few days ago. looking pver the possibilities of the city as a field for gas
'enterprise. Mr. Thomas was quite
(enthusiastic as to the possibilities
for the profitable operation of a gas
I In the manufacture of gas, "Mr,
Thomas said, much depends upon tho
price and quality ol the raw material, \tf'z., coal. Ladysmith coal is so
'good for this purpose, that it is us-
led exclusively by the gas works of
| Vancouver and Victoria-. The supply
,of this excellent gas coal right qt
hand, coupled with the many other
.very favorable conditions of the terv
jritory, make the undertaking a very
| attractive one, and would insure the
Ladysmith consumers the cheapest
gas in British Columbia.
1. Ladysmith would have a twenty-,
four.hour service of gas for all pur-
pesos, lighting, heating, cooking and
power uses.
2. Clas is always reliable. Van>
couver's supply, has not failed once in
21 years.
..il. The field of usefulness for power
and heating gas is unlimited, and' its
consumption is increasing enormously
each year. Especially is its use
growing more and more popular for
industrial purposes as it is found to
Iff the cheapest power and heat available.
-1. For domestic use, especially for
cooling, gas is fast displacing  other

feul by reason of its economy. When
not needed, expense is stopped.
There is no ashes, and a housekeeper's -work is reduced one-half.
Gas is always ready—at any hour, a
match and a minute boils water. For
sickness, for a quick meal at any
hour it has no eqXial. ■ No ashes,
soot, or smokje, no dirt and no worry,
To-day in all modern cities gas is
used almost entirely. Houses are
heated with gas. A gas water heater in the bathroom will heat water
instantaneously, at the rate cf one
gallon per minute, and thus a hath
can be ready with water at 120 degrees temperature in 10 minutes, and
this at a cost ol about four cents.
Many thousands of bathrooms arc
equipped with these instantaneous appliances.
Oas meters are now used which hav,i
the principle ot the penny, in the slot
machines. ' You put a quarter in and
get a quarter's worth of, gas, hence
doing away with the monthly gas
hill. These are especially popular in
Ureat Britain and no doubt would an
I strongly appeal to Ladysmith consumers.
Many people unaccustomed to the
use of gas havo an idea it is expensive for such uses as coo!;ing, heating, etc. As a matter of tact this is
the most economical of all fuels and
a positive loon to the housekeeper.
Always ready, clean and quick. With
other fuel, coal or wdod, we have tl«
l»ss of over one-half up t'.ie chimney,
and soot, ashes, work and worry—a
rrcat contrast to the ever-ready,
clean and efficient, gas.
