Lndysmith fully appeeclatc the good

behalf of the city.
The most important q'licstlon under
discussion was that ot establishing, p.
undertaking a,t that time fell through.
Mr. Lewis felt that all were convinced of the necessity ot a hospital, and
it, only remained with the citizens to
start the- work.
Rev. R. Wilkinson had not the
slightest doubt but what the work

Mr. John Stewart believed all that
was required to get, a hospital here
was lor some one to ma'.ic a start.
Other speakers contributed to the
debate and all agreed that a hospital
was necessary. It was pointed out
that the present government would

that there were several other sources

Delegation to
Vancouver Successful
Mayor Nicholson returned trom
Vancouver Thursday evening after
taking part in thc conference that

Thc object of this meeting, h|3 generally known, was to securiSjjpctter

The gentlemen composing tho : Ladysmith delegation were Mayor rNich.

Then Secretary Wilson introduced
lhe important subject ot discussion

belief that it 'proper methods were
adoptadthe end could be easily gained.
Thc chairman said that the subject
was befotc the meeting and- invited

Mr. J. E. Smith considered It very
strange that something had not - al-

Secretary Wilson believed that It

-Mr. J. Lewis supplied some valuable Intormation as to What had been

tho Board, oi Trade of that city, and
tho mayor speaks in the most appre.
dative terms of the efforts put forth
by Mr.-. Heaps to advance the case ot
the Ladysmith- delegation.
Tho delegation was received by Mr.
Marpole ant Mr. F. W. Peters, tho
latter remaining over a day or so
specially for tho purpose. Throughout the interview, Mayor Nicholson
stales, the officials were anxious to
solve the problems before, them with
advantage to the company and the
City ol Ladysmith. livery point was
discussed in an amicable spirit, and
while it may he that the result,will
not Lc commensurate with tlio growing commercial importance and geographical situation of this city, yet
enough has been promised to prove
that the efforts ot the delegation
have not been by any means futile.
Thc first grievance discussed was
tho '.iicoitvenii nee. passengers to Vancouver were subjected to hy bavin;
to ro up to Naifalmo on the noon
train, remain there for the beat to
Vancouver the next morning, and after transacting their business at Van-
<outer being, compelled ' to remain
over night again in Nanaimo, prevent,
ing their return home until the following morning, Added to this was
thc erratic boat service between Lady-*
snil.h vand Vancouver.. Only those
who ' were giltbd. with the spirit' of
prophecy could determine the. depart
tire or arrival of thc Iransfor.
Tl.is was shown to he. exceedingly
detrimental to tho interests of both
cities, but it was admitted on both'
sidci to ba a difficult, question to
soiie. Tho* Ladysmith delegation
as':cd for a regular service, but it
that were shown to he absolutely impossible they would be pleased if the
company wlSuld hold the trains over
at Nanaimo -until, the arrival ct the
Vancouver boat during thc day's on1
which the do.'.blc trail service was
in operation.
Mr. Heaps said that a tew years
ago the Vancouver city council were
prepared to subsidize a special boat
during tho summer months to the extent of. $ 100 per month to. ran between A'aiicoiivcr and Ladysmitli, call
ling at the islands during thc trip.
Ho had no doubt the niter Would be
renewed if requested.    ^
After dcUallng this question pro
and con Mr. Marpole promised the
delegation that cither a boat scheduled to leave and arrive at certain
hours would he placed on the run, ot
failing in being able to do Ibis, the
company would hold lhe train back
atNalii'imo until the arrival of the
Vanwivrr boKl.«''Hc would wait "Until tho return of Capt. Troup, and
sec It a boat could not bo placed,

comor route.
This was considered satisfactory,
and then .the question of terminal
rates was discussed at length. It
was pointed out that t'.ic Ladysmitli
merchant was compelled "to pay 1*30

Nanaiino merchants.   This was an un-

Fruit growing in British Columbia,
he said had now reached what might
be called the real estate .-tage when
the careful operator would sell to
guileless people for one hundred dollars an acre of land that cost him
85. But though an investigation of
tfiesc cases might cause many to believe that thc fruit-growing ot British'
Columbia was not on a sound basis,
yet they should recognize that there
was constantly going on solid and
honest development which would
make' British Columbia one 'ot the:
greatest fruit' producing countries in
the world.
Mr. Burrell quoted Professor Rob*

its best where children had orchards

As to tho character of thc fruit

that it was rather the hab't ef somo
people in the east, as well as in Eng-
lanl to say that, while Bri'.H.i Columbia fruit had a flensing appc.n'ai'cci
and while the orchard .'.die! e.br-
dantly, the fruit, lacked quality. This/
be spoke of as a pleasing fiction. Mr.
Burrell went on lo till of the pi'i/es
won by British Columbia fruit in
competition with thc very best that,
could be produced elsewhere. At thc
great show of the Pacific Coast Fruiti.

best growers ot Oregon and Washington were represented, British Columbia took the hundred-dollar gold modal (or the best live cases. And at

Hall Caine's
Early Impressions
Hall Caine's career is ot the inspiring character. He emerged, from
the loneliness and obscurity of a little
Manx farm to eminence and prosperity, through his own determination
to follow the high ideals he ■formed
in his youth.. There was no meteoric-
rise to fame in his case, he achieved
success by periods ot. herd-work as a
journalist, poet, dramatist, and noveV
1st; It is a splendid story which
allows the travels*-^! the man with: ft.
purpose from the Isle of Man to
llrceba castle.
vMr. Caine holds himsell inore for-
filiate than sonic of his fellow novel-.
ists (though beginning life with many]
ofiffious disadvantages, and under conditions"- so little likely to develop the
literary faculty)'in being'brought up
us a boy in " little self-eentcreJ com-;
munity whcL'e it whs possible to see
the human drama very plain because
very, close?" There were forty or fifty
thousand all told in the Isle of Man,
and all were in senlity one hig family whereof nearly every'member appeared to know something of nearly
everybody eke,   "Our isolation from
the nst of the -kingdom* our inevitable Intermarriage and the unity  of
our material interests made our, impulses, our passions  our 4n liefs, our
stt;*rstit:ons an open book   for   any
of us to read, and it, must have been
my own fault if, with so ninny oppor
tuiiitks  of rending the human  stoiy
in >lic   impressionable days of childhood, I did not learn a little of   it!
by "heart.
Th:' story of how Hall Caine   be
High road through one of the remoter, parishes in the isle nMWan. It
was the home of an uncle who was a
small farmer as well as a ftulfher, In,
his character as farmer he cultivated
some thirty acres of land, much of ibff
hilly and some ol it boggy. In his
diameter as butcher he. killed thc
sheep he had grazed on tho mountain
s'.opcs and made weu'.ily journeys ti>J
Douglas, the tdiicrtowh of the island
to sell the meat from a stall which
stood in the market place under the
turret ol ati old church.' *> -
On one ol those -oitrneys Cajne
was permitted to go with him, • and
though he knew'lt, so little at tlie
time, he thinks now lhat not only'his
first clear impression ot-the Isle of
Hun, but also hk earliest sense of
life and the world, must date fi'oiu
that exi«rience| -A range ol hills cros
ses thc island from the northeast to
the northwest, and the home lay on
the side no,rlh of them, while Douglas
lies in thc south: Caine's rccollec-
tii,n is that, contrary to the lisiml
practice of farmers butchers, which
^vas to go around thc little, rouge,
his uncle travelled to Douglas by a
ra~s thit crossed the mountains, by]
a valley callW Sulby gltu.
The thatched cottage ol Ballaugh
was the home cf Caine's grandmother as well as his. uncle, and the- nov-
c'.Lt remembers her ajinnst entirely
as the source ol superstitious beliefs;
which to this lioltif be linds it impossible to shake off. She was a little
Manxwomnn, very old and much
bent, dressed in the blue homespun ol
the island and occupied with the li|bt
laboi" of the household while the lustier members of the family were, at
work in the fields. Caine sees her in
hi, mnd's eye yel, gathering up the
dry porse that lay about tho stuck

they suddenly disappeared. Some ol
them were magligiiant as well as mischievous, and she had seen them Hitting along with lanterns, the night,
after a storm, to the door ol some
lcinc ywoniaii whose man was a fisherman away at the herrings, and was
afterward found to. be lost al sea.
There were good fairies; too, and one
of these, whose name was Phondcr-
