The clerks consider thai a Ill-hour
day for four days a week, nnd a
fourteen hour day on Saturday is
long enough time to give all the
customers an opportunity of shopping.
You  will    be   vis'l'.l f these
days, nnd we wish you to irivo this
matter your serious consideration,
so that, when the clerks call, you
wlll bo ready to sign the list. Thero
should be no difficulty in a town
like Ladysmith, where most of tho
people consider nn 8-hour dny long
enough to assist tho clerks in this
matter. Everyone knows the old
story of tho man who wants to make
us believe he is open nil night for
the convenience of customers.
You will materially kelp the clerks
ns well as their employees if you refuse to  do any shopping except     in
the regular business hours.

skating is both a pastime und nn
amusement combined, and properly
managed anil conducted, one of the
most harmless yet most seductive of
exercises.
Mr. II. Parrott is going to    turn
his bowling alley into a  rink.     Of
course  it.     will    be small compared
with the     Vancouver   and Victoria
rinks:  but then the number of skat- j
ers is smaller here.     The alley   will J
givo lots of room for the number ofS
skaters that may be expected to pa-f
tronize it.
'I'he matter is not definitely setl
tied yet. Mr. Parrott is over id
Vancouver trying to make arrange!
meats, and If he succeeds in bis purjf
poso tho work of converting the ai
ley into a rink, will bo stnrted'rlgJ

Owing to an annoying mistake tlie
roport of the visit of the C.P.R. ot-
fieinls to Ladysmith on Wednesday
was overlooked in making up tho

this issue of tho Stundard.
Tho party, whloh consisted of Messrs. h. m. Marpole, ll. E. Beasley,
F. Busteed, J. 0. Ooodfellow, Cnm-
liie and Bulnbrldge travelled up tho
line In Mr. Mnrpolc's private ear, tho
Brunswick. They stopped olT here
to look ovor the land which Is being
clonred by tho company, Great progress is now being mndo with the
work, and the last of tho stumps, nf-
I ter having been blasted, are being
hauled out by a  donkey engine.
A largo tract of land has been
cleared, nnd the visitor! expressed
themselves ns delighted with the
work.
Mr. Marpole confirmed whnt hns
boen more than once roported, thnt
the lnnd will lie jilncod upon the
market and told out In flvc-ncro lots.
Thc company Intends to offer easy
terms and will not chnrge more for
tho land than It hns cost them. Tho
buyers, however, wlll hnve to lie
honnfldo settlers. There ts to lie no
speculation. Moreover, It Is understood, that only white men will be
given the privilege of purchase, the
avowed object of the company being
to build up tho town.
It the land Is readily disposed of
tho company will proceed at once
with the clearing of other 200 acres
of land back of tho town. <   .
Mayor Nicholson also took up other matters with Mr. Mnrpolo vitally
affecting tho future of the elty, its to
which somothlng definite may be given out after today.

thoy sing in costume, which adds immensely to the effectiveness of their

The melodies embrace both the

received the munificent sum of five
pounds. Nobody except Johnson,

however, that of hundreds who hnve

ADDRESS TO THE BOYS
Things have not beon moving along
with the Football 'Club as they ought
to do. In most sporting organizations there are always recriminations
after a string of defeats. It is a
pity that it should be so, and generally it is n piece of egregious, liut
fatal folly.
ln our own case bhoro wns -- necessity for it and not the slightest
shadow of reason for the breaking up
of that admirable spirit" of harmony
and good fellowship which has always ruled tho club. Surely it ought
to bo onough now to say "quit it,"
and let us all get bock to tho winning of championships.
Naturally, and as a matter of
course, the manager has to a large
extent beon made the scape goat. It
he had done that, and hadn't done
tho other, had said that and had
not said tho other, things would
havo boen, oh so different.
Well, put it at that and let it go
at that. Blame as much upon tho
manager as ovor you liko—blamo ov
orything on him, so long as you get
down to work and businoss.
Just a few words of ancient history. First Vancouver. Tho team
was never shaping botter, and, in
spite of nil tho accidents, nt times
showed great form. Remombor also
that Vancouver will novor put out
such a team again. Soattlo was
cortalnly a disappointment and nn
aggravation. But the result followed naturally from the Vancouvor
gamo, and neither ns reporter nor
munager did I sny a word calculated to give any offence to any of the
playors.
Now, wo strike tho Nanaiino gnmc
on the lflth of November. Woll, we
were nil sore, I guess, and ld\s ol
things 'wore said that were nover
meunt. As a reporter, I endeavored to show where the game was
lost. After all it. was only the expression of a iiersonul opinion, and
I suppose I will bo allowed to havo
a right to that much. There was
nothing harsh in what I had to
sa^, and it was all said in the best
of feeling. If anything I snid gavo
olfonce to any of tho players, thon
they have '. „en raised in a different
schoe' o, football to what I was.
Well, tho point is that that gamo
is lost. It is no good talking about
it or quarrelling nbout it. The noxt
point is to got out and win tho
next games. Now, there always
come those littio bickerings in any
kind of club, If thoy are opon and
honest, they soon pass away, and
the club is all the better and stronger and moro united for them. Thoro
lis nothing nt all In the matter except a fow old wives tales, and tho
man who takes notice of them, is us
bad as tho man who peddles thom.
Now to all tho boys I should say
thoy owe something to tho town. I
cannot understand a player with no
interest in tho club myself* but always remember enthusiasm is infectious. Let tho majority start in to
trnln nnd the others will come. It
is not nocossary to havo tho Committee here and there and evory
whero, doing this and thut nnd everything. There oro bound to bo
differences of opinion; but that is no
bar to unitod and harmonious work
Now, I hope theso few words will
havo 'their duo effect. Tho town, remember, hns always generously supported you boys and it is up to you
to do something in return.

■ The train had slowed down In tho

all armed with revolvers, crawled
ovor the tender, and covering the engineer and fireman, ordered thc train
to bo brought to a stop a littio

had come to a stop the bandits
forced the engineer and fireman ti

CHURCH SHOULD HAVE HOME
SUTIPLiY.
OTTAWA, Dee. 9- That the Anglican churches of Canada should
longer augment their clerical supply
trom Great Britain was thc opinion
expressed by tho Bishop of Ottawa
at the conference of tho Anglican
church here yesterday. Ho said the
time hud arrived when tho Anglican
chdrch ought to be nblo to provide
a sufficient numb"- ot clergymen
from among Canadians and no longer go to tho old country, particularly ln view of the fact that In Eng-
fnnd there ls a falling in the supply.
It wat unfair to the mother country
to drain her resources.
vailing opinion is that a plea of
self-defence will bo mndo. This is
in line with tlio claim made by tlie
friends of Cooper that tho affair was
merely a street duel, in which both
rides net and begun firing: that the
Coopers hud tried to avoid a meeting with Mr. Carmack, and that they
wore on their way lc the state cu|ii-
tol in response to a telophone message from Governor Patterson when
he tragedy occurred.
' 'I'he prosecution on tho other hand,
will contend that it wus a case of
premeditated murder, the result. of a
conspiracy, pure and simple; that
Mr. Carmack- was waylaid and assassinated whilo he was on his wny
to his boarding house; that when ho
left his office the fuct was telephoned from a houso near by, and that
thus the Coopers were notified that
the editor wns on _\vs wny, and to
be on the alert.
CASTUO AN ANGEL OF PEACE.
SANTANDER, Spain, Dec. O.-The
French steamer Guudaloupe, with
President Castro of "Venezuela on
board, came in here today. It was
learned soon after his arrival that
President Castro will continue on
board tlio steamor to Ilordoaux and
that from Ilordoaux he will travel
ovorlnnd to Berlin.
President Castro has come to Europe with tlio intention of settling
nil Venezuela's international quarrels
Tho general health of the president is
good.
Sunlander, Dec. 9—The Guada-
loupe ctinic into Snntander flying tho
flag of Venezuela.. ln addition to
President Castro there wero aboard
hls wife, his sistor, Sonora Cordon-
tvo aides and three physicians,
Drs. J. A. Bnldo, Dr. Pablo Jortis,
and Dr. Foneca.
Tho mystery of the President's trip
to Europe was disjiellod soon aftor
the Ciiadaloupc dropped anchor. Tho
reports that Castro is critically ill,
and that he was deserting Venezuela
forever, etc., wore sjieedily pronounc-
. ed absurd, and it was declared that
! ho came to Europe with the double
provided he hns been a general or
a governor or a distinguished politician. Little else counts and even
in such enses the erection of the monument is considered compensation in
full for everything of merit tho do-
censed may hnve dohe for his country.

Some unidentified scoundrel,
doubtedly belonging to the clun of
anarchistic murderers and cutthroats
which seems to be the most characteristic industrial production of Paterson, N. J., threw a bomb at a
police ollicer in that city the other
day. Ho missed tlie officer, but the
exploding bomb wrecked a building
and injured several persons. It is incredible that the existence of such a
hotbed of anarchism and crime is tolerated by nny civilized community.
So long as the Paterson anarchists
confined themselves to assassinate
American presidents, the police authorities of that city smiled indul-
gently at the "innocent pastime" of
their anarchistic pets, f the latter,
however, should begin to use members of the Paterson police force as
targets for bombs, it is quite likely |
that the police authorities will soon
reach the conclusion that it would
be in the interest of the community
to stamp out the nest of criminals.

Scarcely a week passes without
tho announcement that some prominent actor or actress has gone on tho
vaudeville stage. It begins to look
as If tho days of tho "legitimate"
playhouses wore counted, and as if
they would bo compelled to become
vaudeville houses or closo tholr doors
A great deal has been written about
the commercialism of tho stage, with
special reference to the commercialism of theatricnl managers. But how
about the players? Is It not the
rankest kind of commercialism if a
good actor or actress, for the sake
of increasing their incomes, abandon
the legitimate stage for tho vaudeville? Tho latest addition to tho
runks of deserters from the legitimate stage is Mrs. James Potter
Brown. What makes this stop by
bor so much more Inexplicable is that
sho did not havo to take it for tbo
sake of monoy. She Is reputed to
bo quite wealthy.
