Vol. I.
Ladysmith, B. C, Sattitfday, January 16, 1909.
The Old Council
Has Been Re-elected
The municipal "clectiops in Ladysmith: ■ did not excite much interest.
The fact that there was only a contest In.one ward may.have account**
.for this, and as to the mayoralty
contest Irom first to last there seenw
ed to te a general belief that Mr. D.
Nicholson was sure of election.
Throughout the day thc votes came
in slowly, and at one o'clock only
forty-two votes had been polled for
the mayoralty candidates. In the
alternoon the votes recorded were
few, hut at four o'clock there were
quite a number who dropped in to
exercise the'.r franchise. At seven
o'clock the polls closed, and, Returning Officer Stewart proceeded with
the count jig of the ballots, and this
work; did not take niaury mii.jites.
About twenty minutes past seven tiw|
'returning officer gave out tlie following statement, and declared Donald
Nicholson elected mayor, and George
Roberts and Murdoch Matheson aldermen for thc east ward:
FOR MAYOR.
Donald Nicholson  83
Walter Tennant Myles  50
FOR   ALDERMEN-EAST   WARD.
George Roberts 38
Murdoch    Matheson 32
David   Pateiscn:  .31
After the announcement was made
, by the returning officer, Mayor NSch.

the city hell.    He thanked his sup-

CHUCKED UP HIS JOB.
M.; J. Flanagan, the brother of
Tom Flanagan, tlie man who trained
Tom Longboat for his last -two rad
es with Dorando, has chucked up his
job.
"I wouldn't tale $2C0 a-day and
handle that fellow," says Mike, disgustedly. "He is the most contrary
rie:c of furniture I over had anything
to do with. If I wanted him to
train at one o'clock I had to fight
liiuiull the way. He always wanted
to do something 'else. I want no
more to do with him.'"
' So it is up to the' ' long-suffering,
patient Tom Flanagan to both train
and manage him. Tom will lea' je
for New York to take hold ot him
at once.
Tho latest dialling to the Indian
is from Albert. Corey, thc Chicago
Marathoner, who runs Dorando Jan-
uary 26th. He wants to run Long-

Flanagan wired back collect.
porters for having elected him onee
more mayor of Ladysmith. He was
pletsed to see the old council .return-,
ed. They had participated In several
very important measures during) the
past year, and now they would have
an opportunity of completing their
wcrk. As for himself, he would in
the future as in the past do the verjj
best he could for the city.     >
Mr. .Walter Tennant Myles then, addressed the meeting. He thanked
those who had voted for him. He
said that some one had Circulated the
report that he had the hacking of the
saloon and billiard hall people. This
was not) true, and he7iestablishcd to
the satisfaction of those present' that
such was not the case.
Mr. George Roberts in a brief
speech, thi,n':ed his supporters for
ll'acing fan' at the head, of tic'■ poll
in the cast ward, and he assured one
i.nd all that he would get right to
work and complete the work the city
now had oh hand;
Mr. Matheson thanked his supporters for'their votes and inlluencc. He
had not canvassed a vote, and those
who had supported him did so voluntarily. He would do his best to
merit the confidence that had been
placed in him.
Mr. David Patterson, the defeated
candidate lor the east ward, thanked those whojhad supported him, and
cenmded 'by'Hying that he would
now go home and take a rest.   *-—

The Vanity of
An interesting
"The vainest lot of men I ever did
know are behind these walls," remarked a convict in the penitentiary,
"For fastidious dressing and cleanliness I have never seen anything lik.j
it. Those who have been accustomed
to sleeking up on the outside grow
much worse in here, and thos? who
nc'.t'i even combed their hair on the
outside have it as cleanly parted as
they can. I know ot a hundred i instances where convicts have risked
leim paddled or having time taken
away just for the sake ot shaving,
"hey get hold ol a razor or impi'o-
vi.,o .-ne and keep it in their cells.
Tli y all have Mirrors In their cells
along with Ike calendars.
"I know ot one instance ot a trusted prisoner who begged for weeks to
le allowed to wear a hat instead of
the prison cap because ha thought h
i\ s
did not look well In it.     Whenever
they get an opportunity they press
their trousers. They save collars (or
Sundays and appear very clean and
neat in chapel. I guess it is all because they have time to think abut
themselves more than e"er. It a man
has nothing else; but himself to think
about he takes more pride |n himself.
Or maybe they want something t
pass away the time in their; cells."
Vuncau'ipr, Jan. 15.—A frightful
accident occurred to-day on the line
ot the C. P. R. eight miles cast ol,
Yale. Passenger train No. 97, west-
hound, with two locomotives ahead
pu'llingl through hcaity snow, struck
oi 12-foot snow slide, left the tracks
and four ol the cars with the engines went into the Fraser river.
The accident caused the telegraph
wires to break, and it -was some
time before a message was scut to
N'erth Bend and. from there transmitted to Vancouver.
The engine drivers of both locomotives were killed; at least they .went
into the river on their engines, and
their bodies had not been recovered
when the message was sent, from
North Benl. The victims are James
Foster and Cascaden. Both men are
well 1 nuwn In Vancouver, having been
driving engines for years on thc Pacific division. '
As a mii'acle, both firemen were
not killed in the wreck.
Tbe train was one made up at
Medicine Hat on Wednesday night to
take the place of the Pacific express,
which was delaytd by storms in
Manitoba. The wrecked train would
therefore not contain any through
passengers.
Thelast message from North Bend
stated that   the   baggage, mail, ex-
The railway, commission ha* issued
a circular which Us ol interest to all
parties having cases beforo it. • It
points.out that in;the past on hearing, applications, it was slnwn that
many of the parties' having cases bc-
ifore it were not notified to bo in attendance. Thc board now lays down
thc rule that no application will be
received by tho coiii|iilssli*i unless
tlici'o is proof ot service on all intoi'-

ci.nsent must be adduced. Not only
must notice be given, but plans have

February 27th.

DEATH OF    ISAAC OOUI.D.
At 4 o'clock this morning Isaac
(iould, one of the best-known of tho
old-timers passed away. Last October Mr. (loul'd had an attack of
pleurisy and since that time he has
been confined to his home. Ot,hcr
complications set- in, and he gradually grew worse until thc end came
this morning.
Deceased was horn at Friaingtoh,
in the north of England, sixty-three
years ago. He was married thero
and came to Wellington, in ,180.1. He
worked in the mines and, kept a general store. In 1901 lie! moved his
store to Ladysmith and has resided
here since that time, being engaged
in the general store business. He
leaves behind him two brothers in
England, one brother in Cedar district, and his wife in Ladysmith.
Deceased was a well-informed man
on many subjects, and was decidedly
positive in character. Once he made
up his mind to a line of action noth-.
ing could sway him in lis purpose.
The funeral arrangements will not
be finally decided upon until the ar-
lival of his brother from. Cedar, who
has been telephoned for.

CITY ELECTIONS.
The result of the municipal elections in Ladysmith this
week cannot be said to have been a matter of surprise
to anyone, and the fact that the old council board was reelected is perhaps the best evidence that could be pro.
duced of their general qualifications for office. No doubt
the greatest influence in determining the result was the
feeling that the men who have been interested all year
in the matter of providing the citizens with electric light
and a sewerage system were the best qualified to carry
these undertakings to a successful issue. The men now
elected to the council board asked for the confidence of
the ratepayers so that they could have an opportunity of
. completing their work. That confidence has been freely
given them, and it is now their duty to proceed with the
wor): with the least possible delay.
It is not to the discredit of the men who were defeated
that they did not succeed in getting a majority of the
votes. The ratepayers were evidently satisfied with the
existing order of things, and thus they expressed themselves at the polls. The gentlemen who lost are estimable citizens, and they took their defeat like men. Perhaps at some future time the ratepayers will call upon
them to serve the city either as mayor or aldermen, and
when that time comes there need be no fear that the
city's interests will not be faithfully safeguarded.
It might not be out of place here to express regret that
thr vote was not a larger one. This apparent apathy
with regard to munic$al matters is explained by the fact
fact that there was only a contest in one ward for the al-
dermanic board. Even then there should have been a
larger vote, if for no other reason than to show the outside world that the ratepayers of Ladysmith were intensely interested in municipal matters.
In Ontario they are beginning to realize tlwt they must
be "up and doing" if they are to retain the prairie country as a market for their fruit, says the Province. It is
being impressed upon them that British Columbia has a
great future in horticulture and that if they are to compete in this produce with the Pacific province they have
little time to spare in preparing themselves. Several of
the leading papers have recently commented on this situation, inspired thereto no doubt by far-seeing officials of
the Ontario Government.

wjth reference to great Britain's marked loss of prestige
in Canada in the last seven years. "The feeling is general in Canada," he says, "that Canadian blood was shed in
South Africa in a sacrifice to aid an empire which is too
feebly governed to profit by such loyal devotion. If Britain does not soon reciprocate the preference, or at least
take measures to protect herself from impending disaster,
Canada may be induced to play her own business game."
This is strange language from a man, holding the views of
Mr. Dennison.
Next to their own civic election the citizens of Ladysmith were most interested in the mayoralty contest at
Victoria, where Mayor Hall defeated ex-Mayor Morley by
over 400 majority. Nanaimo Hodgson polled more votes
than his two opponents. At Vancouver Charles Douglas
was elected by a very large majority. Up in Nelson,
where they have the ticket system down toperfection,
Harold Selous and his full ticket were elected. The issue
there seemed to be a questipn of resuming the tramcar
service. W. G. Gillett, a man of modern and progressive
methods, promised to have the cars running again during
the year, while Harold Selous, a man of mediaeval ideas,
was decidedly non-committal on the point. The non-progressives won, and the ratepayers of Nelson will probably
regret the result of the elections before, the close of the
year 1909.....

A Woman's Notebook
It is sometimes stated in these
(li.ys of militant Suffragists that ihv
old-fashioned woman was merely a
timid and valourlcss.creature... This,
howc er, was not really so, for there
aro many accounts of immense force
of character and fighting qualities
and even barbarous courage having
been shown by women in civil and
other wars in tho past. I must new
erthcless own I was greatly astonished at reading an account of a due)
between two well-known dames ol bygone times and ancient degree, ol a
fierce duel that was fought 'between
Lady Almeria EradtlocK and Mrs.
Elphinstone, and this is how the
quarrel appears to have come about.
...
Mrs. Elphinstone, during thecoursgj
ol a pleasant interchange of female
amenities, is reported. to have said
to Lady Almeria Braddock, "you
have indeed been a beautiful .woman,.''
whereupon Lady Almeria, smiling and
well pleased, was suddenly petrified
at hearing her Iriend add, "and indeed you have a good autumnal lace

the lilltcs and roses have laded. Inure!," added this charmingly complimentary friend, "I have heard that,
forty years ago, a ycung fellow
cauld hai'dly gaxe.upcn you with impunity." This was more than Lady
Almeria could stand. To be called a
bygone beauty, to be told she had an
autumnal face, were insults enough
and to spare; and to have it put in
a term ot years was too much, and
she furiously declared she was scarcely thirty-cne yet, so this must' indeed lie a vile aspersion. Whereupon
Mrs. Elphinstone glibly quoted Col.
lins-tlio Burke of that day—and
proved Lady Almeria to be sixty-
one.
...
After this finishing touch in the
way of insults, the two angry ladies
repaired together to Hyde Park,
where they actually fought a duel at
ten yards' pistol range.   Lady    Al-

I am.bound to say my sympathies
arc with the Lady Almeria. It is
not cnly. exceedingly tiresome to have*
one's years exposed, but I think a
few women would appreciate tho cx-
pressicn "a good autumnal tape.'1
Yet an autumnal face can be, if natural and free from the disfiguring
artifices that so many elderly women
resort to, a comely, and even a beautiful sight. It is only when ,thc ripened beauty is painted and powdered
into a caricature of springtime loveliness, that the autumnal face becomes a sad and an ugly sight.
* * .
Is there anything the memory ot
which is su tender and touching as
tlie remembrance of our first love ?
Tl.ere has always been a glamour
thrown over first love both by poets
and ("rose writers, and yet fi is of-
Un a silly tnd mawkish state of
mind—how silly and mawkish wo do
not realize until wc look back ujon
it and analyse it sensibly. Poets
hale written so much of.the first
ftiungo thrill of love, of the first
kiss, and the liist awakening ct love
and passion; bus George Eliot, great
and wonderful student of the human
heart that s!:e was, comments on the
too great importance' tliat writers
have always given to it. "How is
it," she asks, "that the poets have
said so many fine thing; a'iiout our
first lovt and so few about our later
love? .Are their first poems ticst? Or
are not those the best that''come
from their fuller thought, their larger experience, their deeper-rooted affections? The boy's flute-like voice
has its own spring charm, but the
man should yield a deeper, richer ;mu-
sic." This is true, for our early
love is often as water to wine when
compared to the real lore and undying passion  that comes  to some of
us in later years.

"Arc their first poems best?*' asks
Oeorge Eliot of the poet. No, I*
should say not; they are moil' likely
to be, like thc first fancy oi youth,

"as water unto wine'' compared to
the poet's matu'rer thought, and yet
what c; er gai e a writer or a poet
a greater thrill of joy, that may
hoid everything in the way of fame
and happiness, than a first effort—
olt first expressed Conception oi
thought? We may look back on it
r.jw as crude and puerile. We may
wonder how we could ever have writ!
ten such silly rubbish, and yet, at
the time when we first saw it in
print, and even batore we saw it in
print, it held for us a very world of
hopjj and promise it its part:s. It
was our.Ust then, and the first born
of cur, buiin, and it thrilled us with
hope and yet with lovely timidity.
Wo mistrusted ourselves, and yet all
was uossible to us—and for the time
bein; our world was peopled with a
joyous success that beat in bound-

less fame. As to our first love—as
we look back now en the person
whose very presence meant complete
contentment for us once—what do wp.
think now of the fatuous young man
or gigsling Qirl that wo once' adored
so timidly? It seems as crude and
foolish as our first halting and labored literary effort, r;id yet at the
time, does any woman ever fail to
remember, even while she affects to
laugh at having loved such a person,
the first thrilling touch ot Uiat person's hand, the first shy kiss that
touched her choek so timidly, or the
gawky boy who was so shy. and nervous he could scarcely kiss her?
Poets will continue to cast theirl
glamour of memory over it while pte-
tending to laugh; and it is well we
should, for it wore better to leave
the deeper and mote sacred nwe
alone, and continue to idealize the
little loolish memories ot our youth.

THE QUALITY HOUSE
Start the new year right and have your watoh overhauled. Just think of It, the
balance of your watch makes about 18,000 vibrations per hour, for every hour of the
yeari that it routes on pivots only 'OS millimeters in diameter, or about the equal of a
good sited human hair, also lhat all the oil it can retain for running purposes is about
the one one-thousandth of a drop.
Give tho watch a ehanee and have It thoroughly overhauled. Always go to the
beat man, as cheap work on aueh delicate mechanism as that if a watch ia always dear
in the long run, and usually causes ruin. We do all kinds of repairs, from the convert-
| ing of the key winder into a tetm winder to the ordinary work of cleaning, Kto. Noi e
but the best materials used. We have not only served the usual apprenticeship at onr
trade, but have also had the advantage of a thorough study of the watch and scientific
mechanics, at the Canadian Horologicnl 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, is not one who has hail this training, moro capable of thoroughly repairing vour watch than one who knows little or nothing about tho principles involved,
who just picked his trade up, as so many have. All we ask is a fair trial. Our prices
are correct, and the work fully guaranteed, We can make and repair any part of a
watch from barrel lo balance.
