(To the Editor.)
Dear Sir:—1 see published in your
iss-e of to-day, the names of the
players selected by th,e committee, to
represent thc Ladysmith Football
Club :ji their Island League game
with Nanaimo' on the 14th inst. 1
notice that tbure are two changes
made in the limvup ^...ce they plnyed
.Nanalmu last Sunday, Granger ploys
outside right inswjtd of McDowell.
This change I consider an improvement in tl e forward line, from observation of. .past play of both men.
McDowell's inclusion at full Lack, Is
possibly, nccessit-tled by the injuries
received by A. -'Vctrrii.cn in the Nan^
. aimo game,
Now, Mr. Editor, hero the question
arises, is McDowell compel' nt to fill
that responsible position against the
robust play of the Nanaimo forward
line. I doubt it, ns tu'.o the Injury
received by. M rris .n, who, undoubtedly is more sturdily bull thuuiMd
Further, as Nanaiin" is undoubtedly the strongest clew tliat we shall
meet In tlie leap:, i»r selectors
should certainly put forwwd ourtiest!
men lo meet them, nnd in my opinion, this has not ten done.
If wc prevent, oui opponents irom
scoring even if we do not score ourselves, we shall divide thc points, nnit
this can only-lid done by selecting the
strongest defence possible, ov ivall-
Now, as^dams has had two Wee'.:;'
rest   since he   sprains I Us !:nco   in
Vi.toria, 1 think he . diould be   requested to    fill the i option oi   li"
lack, as lie lias ccii.'.ily nil' th
quinments  'to   quality nim lor the
position;,  namely,   height,    weight,
speed, and above all, experience.   01 ■    ^ .thc)r work b
course I am    cognizant,   of tln> fact ;,„»„„ .,„.;ki»
that Adam's Inec m.y give out before, lhe game is finished, but as  be
could fnish .he Estiii'ihialt game,    I
think he could do the riifie pn   Sunday.   If he should chance to 'lip, but
1 do not think this is the least likely, as the Ladysmith grounds are not
slippery at any time.
Of course, Mr. Editor, I'would
rather see Adam playing in his old
position at centre and give Christian
the place at 'back, but,, presumably,
as Adam may have some other reason *han a sprained knee for not play-
ink, centre, 1 think, he should, be asked to play thc back po'sition. Thanking you for space, I remain, yours,
. Ladysmith, Feb. 10, im.
is   thc
and for thc test, the lineup
same as was seen here on
'H is a strong eleven, and the local boys will have to get themselves
into the best possible shape lo pull
the game off. There is none of- the
players out ot commission as a result of Sunday's game, and the management request them all to turn
nut for practice. It ia possible i.that
this series will arouse more interest
than did the Pacific Coast League.
It is an old competition, and the
championship ol the province is seme
thing that should bring out local
patriotism for all the competing
cluls. Sunday-* game is between
champions and ex-champions, and
this fact alone should make it interesting. In addition there is all the
local rivalry between the two-clubs.
Nanaimo won by two goals to one
the last'time they played on the Ladysmith. sports ground. What are
they, going to do on Sunday? There
will certainly be a big crowd there
to see."
A special train will leave Nana\mo
Sunday at l.a'j p. m. for the accomodation of those who dcsiie to attend the football match at Ladysmith.- Visitors can return on the
regular G o'clock train.
Moore's football team will leave on
Sunday morning at 9 o'clock loc Che.

returns on the neon train. The following will le the line-up:.

offices in Vancouver earniifg from 850
to $75 per montb. ft" is a question
whether young people themselves are
not responsible for the low rate of
wages. Only recently a young girl
came to Vancouver from Halifax, and
after taking a course at Pitman's
College she has been earning 860 per
month in the leading law cilices in
the city. It is not everyone who can
do this immediately but if they possess a fair education and have: power
of concentration they do and can succeed. It is an enigma' why so many,
young women remain in England and
use up their youthful energy and lcr
main a charge on the home keeper. It
would he far letter for both tlut
they should emigrate.
The United States Revenue Cutter
Manning was in at the wharves coaling during the past week. This was
the vessel that went to thc assistance of the schooner Soqjucl on January 23rd last. They brought the
crew to Port Townscnd. The men
in relating the incident, said that
theni were many tear-stained desks
when the bodies ol the captain's w te
and little child were brought on
board the cutler. This would tough
Jack's heart as he remembered his

remembered that {he captain's wife

struck and killing them instantly.
The other two masts are still standing, and the rocks are through the

Mr. Frank J. Richards. J. P., Vancouver, sends the following from a
report ot the committee ot the British House of Commons appointed to
ook. into the scale ol wages for wort?
era on Government contracts. The
report states that the larger proportion of employees of a firm ol Edinburgh printers are women. That
they can set up type in Greek, Hebrew, and algebraic characters. The
girls are said to be more economical
than the men, but "not So satisfactory, because they are always going
oft for sickness of some kind."
In the leather trade the employment of women has increased cuisid-
ably in recent years.    A represen-

The girl viho works for pocket-
money wages and who contributes
little to the upkeep ol tlie home was
ic.ilt with by Miss Irwin, ol thc
Scottish Council lot Women's Trades
in her evidence. The standard rate
ot wages for women would always
tend to be broken down by thcac casual cr "pocket-money ladies," in
fact, in the needlework, trades the
competition of the partially-supported woman was a serious matter to
the woman dependent entirely upen
her earnings.
I think the majority, perhaps, ol
girl clerks are not living on their
wages, and that they, are living on
their parents," said Miss Black. "We
all know thc average wage of clerks
in the city has,been brought down to
a rate which make it very difficult
lor a man to live upon the. salary ol
a clerk at all-slmply because women
are taking ths work from them; they
are doing it at least as well, and
earn ntout a third ol the -.men's payment."
The married woman nn comfortable
circumstances is better ted than th*
poorer worker, and cm do more per
hour. Moreover, she Insists on higher wages, and il wages go down she
quits her trade and refuses to work
lor reduced wages. "The worst paid
workers are those who arc absolutely dependent upon their work-lrccausf
they dare not drop it," -she added.
Mr. Richards says that women who
can set type in Greek, Hebrew and algebraic typo ought to be paid living
wages. Thero are many young women, at the present time employed In

The hope so tcrverently expressed
by the Conservatives of Victoria that
they would be relieved of the presence of William BlaHemore, the spell-
while the election campaign'
was going on in Comox-Atlin was
ruthlessly shattered by the election ot
Mr. Templeman by acclamation.

The election ot Hon. William Templeman by acclamation tor Comox-
Atlin has provoked considerable discussion amongst both Liberals and
Conservatives. Betore Mr. Manson
announced his determination to enter
the contest there were many Conservatives who believed that in view ot
the recent disclosures in connection
with the Victoria election, Mr. Tcmpleman should te permitted to tak>e
the seat without any opposition; but
when Mr. Manson stated that there
was a strong feeling amongst Conservatives in Comox-Atlin that Mr.
Tcmpleman should 'be opposed; these
Conservatives telt that in the interests ot the party t.:ey would have to
set aside their personal objections to
a contest. Mr. Manson otters as . an
excuse tor backing out at the last
moment) that he could not get the necessary financial s ipport to carry on
his campaign, but It that were the
case he should have been aware ol tho
tact betore he started tor Prince Rupert. It looVs as it the Conservatives of Comox-Atlin hrd been "silenced" in some way or other, and if
this proves to be the case, it will
ha'-e a bad etfect en the future ot
tho party. So tar as Mr. TemplcmarV
Is concerned, Tlie Chronicle (eels now
es it did before the elo.it ion—that Hit
electors ot Prince Rupert in electing
Mr. Sloan had endorsed the policy oi
Sir Wilfiid Laurier, and lhat there
was no reason to believe that they
had changed their mind in the space
of time that had e'apsed between the
election of Mr. Sloan and the nomination ol Mr. Tcii)| lenu n. As the
situation now presents itself it loo's
as it both thc Conservative and Liberal "machines" ha I been working in
Mr. William Sloan is a strong be
l'iever in elections by acclamation. In
his own contest, Dr: Quin'lan was a
candidate up till an hour betore nom
ination, ard tnen he faded away.
When Mr. Sloan handed his seat ovei'
to Mr. Templeman,. one Manson stepped into the arena but dropped out
before the hour for nomination. II
Mr. Billy Sloan's method became universal, the Canadian people would be
saved a vast sum in election expenses
every year.
Tho Vancouver Province (Conservative) says: "In common with many
of thc people ot the province wo take
this opportunity ol extending our com
gratulations to Hon. William Templeman on his election tor Comox-Atlin,
Our sincerity in doing so will not be
impugned when we say, witlo.t re
serration, that wc consider it a good
thing tor British Columbia that it has
a cltiaen ot its own in thc cabinet
and one on wiiom it can rely. Mr.
Templeman can be ot great service to
this province without any display ol

Tl.o oppottunitics of every American are brought vividly before, us In
connection with the celebration of t,'.«5
centenary of Abraham. Lincoln. Here
was one who sprang from the people;
who suffered the pinch of poverty,
who worked hard and long at splitting rails and other farm labor, but
who rose hy study In thc evenings
and his habit of industry to thc high*
est office in the gilt o! the American
nation, and won a place among the
great men of history.
Although he was af product ot pi-
oncer times—methods aro different
now—the same spirit ot pluck and the
determination to keep working for
something better will win success today as it did then.
Lincoln's career shows that no c"t-
ter where one may be placed, in
small village or larger town, or on
a farm, he can overcome tbe obstacles, in his path. But he must take
all sorts ot hard knocks and come up
■smiling. Like the toottoalt player
who is severely pummeled in practice
and is thus hardened for the tig
tests of strength to come, each imust
take the knocls as part ot lite. The
Illinois rail-splitter has shown the
spirit in which to meet difficulties?
No hard luck that is lacing any ot
us Is worse than he had to contend
wHi—and we can all subscribe to his
gospel ot hope and renewed effort
through which he finally won out.
And when he attained the height
bo did net forget that he.was.still
one ot the people, Nor did hei forget)
how to work, putting inns long
hours ol exacting toil as any pne in
the land. Lincoln was and is the
people's hero. He -loved mankind and
was particularly considerate ot those
not favored hy fortune. No other figure in history has been more loved
by the common people ot the civilized world. His tame shines with no
less lustre among statesmen, scholars, and others in high places. He
believed—and acted It out all his lite
—"that all men arc created equal,"
as he said in his immortal address
on the Gettysburg 'battlefield, which
every American should read again at
this time.   "Government of the peo
ple, by thc people, and for the people," another principle emphasised by
him in that famous address, found in
him its foremost champion.
In personal appearance Lincoln was
homely, and his long limbs were angular and awkward, but he demonstrated that, beauty ot mind, the
light in the eye, and the ready, smile
could make these vanish in the sight
ot his fellows. He was a noted story
teller, and had a gift ol humor that
delighted those around him. John
Hay, the late secretary ot state,
used to tell of a dream hearing en
hi-3 personal appearance that Linoln
cn'.-e related. Lincoln said that iy
thc dream he was in some great as-
iciiiuly; the people made a lane to let)
him pass. "He is a common-looking
ello^," some one said. Lincoln, in
his dream, turned to his critic and
replied in his Quaker phrase.
"Friend, the Lord pretcrs common-
looking people, that is why he made
so many ot them."
Among the negroes ot thc South,
who he had freed from slavery
through the great Emancipation proclamation, he was, looked upon as a
supernatural ixing with trnnscendant
His greatness was fittingly cxpres-
seiTby Ralph Waldo Emerson, short-
ly after his death by the assassin's
hand, whe said: "A plain man ot the
people, an extraordinary fortune attended him, . . . His occupying
lhe chair ot state was a triumph of
the good sense of mankind and ot the1
.mb'.ic conscience. He grew accofd-
ng to the need; his mind mastered
the problem ot the day; and as the
iroblem grew, io did his comprehension ot it.
It cannot be said that there is any
exaggeration of his worth. If ever a
man was fairly tested, he was. "Then
what an occasion was thc whirlwind
of,the w^r! Here was no place for
holiday magistrate, nor fair-weather
sailor.the new pilot was hurried to
the h:lm in a tornado. In four
years—four years ot battle days—his
endurance, his fertility ot resources,
, is magnanimity, was sorely tiled
and nccr found wanting.
".There by his courage, his justice,
his even temper, his tertile counsel,
his humanity, he stood a heroic figure in the centre of a heroic epoch.
He is tho true history ot the American people in his time; the true representative of this continent—lathe.)
of his country, the pulse ot millions
of people throbbing, in his heart, the
thoughh of their minds articulated by
iiis  tongue.

The. Chinese pirates in 1800 dominated the empire of the southern seas,
capturing cities, levying tribute, defying and defeating all the forces of
the vast kingdom of China brought
against them, and ruling the coasts
they .controlled with tho same arrogance as il they wcro piinces of the
blood. ,
Their domain extended from Ton-
quir to Foochow, mi their base oP
npei-.it/ins was an. ig lands at
the mouth of the IV rl r ,er aind
along, tlie shmes of the southern pro-
vin'ueof Ourn (Tong.
There were six squadrons of pirates
the most powerful of all being the
Red .Flag, which was under the com.
mattd ot Mistress Ching, widow at
Ching Yill, a famous pirate leader,,
who had perished in a hurricane. Am-*
ong ll.e pirate captives was a lad
named Chan,' Paou, the son ot a
fisherman, handsome and intelligent,
whim the dead chief's widow chose
as her lieutenant.
In the years that followed the name,
of Captain Paou was destined to become a word of droad as lar as Europe and America. But the true terrors, with the true power, lay in the
delicate -bauds ot Mistress Ching,
whose name was one of such dread
and awe that her subject grates
themselves scarcely dared to utter it
In 1808, in a great sea battle, the
pirates sank three government ships
and captured fifteen, with thc commander. Immediately afterwards on^
of the Chinese generals was defeated
and hall a dozen of his best war vessels were added to tbe pirate Sect.
In 1809 the Chinese government jgavc
Admiral Tsucn 100 ships to wipe out
the power of Mistress Ching. Capt.
Paou was permitted to meet, that
mighty lorce, end he was Jicaten with
a loss of 200 prisoners. The Chinese
admiral, elated, prepared for n second
But now, with her prestige impaired by the first serious delcat she had
ever encountered, the pirate queen'
rrsqliod that her. favorite's ■ daring I
could only be effective when directed
by her genius. She assumed supreme
commend i,t thc pirato fleet, and, like
Cleopatra, sailed .forth to meet the
foe. Within a lew hours the great
Admiral Tsuen and his vest squadron
were'-overwhelmingly defeated, and l\
ol his ships were in the hands ot the
pirates. ■    ,'
An English prisoner ol the pirates
'.n that year tound that Mistress
Ching's squadron numbered 800 large
warships, nnd 1000 smrll ones, with
crews amounting to 70,000 men. What
heights the great Mistress Ching
might have risen -to had not Opatae,
commander ol the Black Flags, conceived a bitter jealousy ol Captain
Paou it ia impossible to guess.    .
Optitae, at a critical time in the
war with the government, withheld
aid trom Mistress Ching's favorite
commander. Paou, in_,i reckless rage.
hurled aga/nst his associate an interior lorce and was repulsed. Opatae in
tha hour ol his victory was filled
with destiny, for he realized that
Mistress Ching would punish him by
utter destruction.
In his apprehension, ot. her wrath hu
appealed to the government lor par.
don, a, boon which the beaten and
discomfited Chinese admiral rejoiced
to grmt. The detection ol Opatae
revealed to all the pirates that there

the penalty ot thtir hideous crime*,
with their sole altcrnnth\p, the desperate one ot conquering the whole
of China.
Tile proffer of complete amnesty
even to Mistress Ching and to Capt.'
Paou brought about a grave council
of all the pirate leaders. Paou stood
out boldly against acceptance But
Mistress Ching at length decided that
the end must come sooner of later,
and bade all her followers surrender.
Paou was made major in the Chines.}
