As reported in tho Inst ;ssuc ol' t'-e,

Mayor Nicholson said he thought

have accepted it.
Aid. Matheson said hu would liko

The trouble u few thoughtless destructive persons can make in a community is brought home every day.
It ia the community, not the harebrained jokers who unfortunately
have to pay for it. For example,
aome person or persons have actually stripped off some of the fittings of
the motor winches on tho Tyee
Smelter Company's new wharf. Besides the cost of the fittings, there
is the time and trouble necessary to
replace them and, in any case it was
either a piece of wanton destruction
or criminal theft.
Now, for the rosults. Tho spit is
much used in the summer for bathing and is always tho scene of tho
Regatta on thc First of July. If by
granting theso privileges the com-
pnny is to have its machinery stripped or injured can it ho wondered at
if tho grant is no longer made. It
is to be hoped that the spit will be
available for the Regatta this year
again, but actions such as these always end in tho -withdrawal of a privilege which, by the great majority
of tho community, is vastly appreciated and generally respected.

REVAL, June 9.—The meeting bo
tween King Edward and Emperor
Nicholas occurred here today with
due formality. It was the first timo
that an English monarch has ever
made an official visit in Russian waters, escorted by the Royal yacht
Victoria and Albert with tho King
onof England on board, entered the
"Bay of Reval shortly after 10
o'clock this morning.
The customary salutes were fired,
and after an exchange of formal visits, the King and the Emneror
lunched on board tho Russian Polar
Star aa the guests of the Dowager
Empress. Tho bay was favored by
brilliant and beautiful summer weather, and thousands of spectators
had gathered on the battlement summit of Mount de la Cathedral and
along the wooded shores of the bay
and other points of vantage of sea
wall to witness the Incoming of tho
ships of war. The Imperial train
bearing the Emperor of Russia and
sulto from Peterhofl arrivod hero at
8 o'clock this morning: Whon the
Imperial party alighted they were
suDvlsed to find the disembarking
platform surrounded by a guard of
school children of Reval instead of a
detachment of troops. The children
cheered enthusiastically and this evidently mado a deep impression upon
tho Emperor and the Empress.
Accompanied by the infant Czarevitch and the littio Orand Duchess,
his slstore, the Royal party at once
boarded a launch and were at once
taken out to the yacht Standard.
The Russian Empress, the Queen of
Greece, and other nobilities, arrived
one hour later and wore put on
board tho yacht Polar Star. The
Emperor wore the uniform of a captain In tho Russian army. The little
Czarevitch, who was in" high spirits
was clad In a youthful sailor costume. As Emperor Nicholas boarded the Standard, the Imperial saluto was fired, the Royal Standard
was hoisted to tho mast-head and
the yachts and all the rest df shipping In tho harbor dressed ship and
broke out tho bunting of tho British
vessols which had arrived in the offing during tho night and wore now
visible on tho horizon. In the lend
was tho Victoria and Albert and
then the two cruisers, and in tho
rear tho othor Imperial yacht Alexandra.
Passing outside the Russian vessols, which had formed in two lines,
and rushing lively past the Stand-
art and Polar Star, the Victoria and
Albert and the two cruisers swept
round in a great curve coming closo
into shore and dropping anchor bo-'
tweon tho Stnndart and the Polar
Star. King Edward on tho bridge
of the Victoria nnd Albert, and Emperor occupied a similar position on
tho Standart. Both monarchs could
plainly bo seen from tho shore. King
Edward wore tho uniform of a British Admiral.
Tho minuto tho visiting vessels
dropped thoir anchors, a launch bearing Emperor Nicholas loft the side
of the Standart and tho Russian
monarch boarded tho Victoria and
Albert, whero ho exchangod vory
hearty greetings with King Edward,
whom he had not scon for seven
years and saluted Quern Alexandra
and Princess Victoria.
After a fow minutes on bonrd the
Victoria and Albert Emperor Nicholas returned to the Standart. In the
meantime King Edward had put on
the uniform of a Russian admiral,
and nt onco returned tho call on tho
Emperor on tho Standart. Ho was
presented to Premier Stolypin, former Minister Iswoisky, and Vice-admiral Dickoff, Minister of Marine.

■the same thore ore somo few citizens
wno regard it not as a good investment, promising fair returns, but
as simply a waste of good money.
This view is symptomatic ol Lady-

timorous, negative attitude so many

Vancouver. Ships already call here
from all ovor the coast with ore for
tlie smelter. Ib tbe smelting industry going to be the only one in British Columbia? As a matter ot
fact the capital for industries drifts
into cities like Victoria and Vancouver simply becuiiae they are advertised and not because ths location is. by any mesne the best. For
any industry requiring coal, coiinf a
more favorable site be found on the
Island or in British' Columbia, than
Ladysiiiilh? Advertise these facts;
and we shall have industries here.

rision. Still the laugh is coming
our wav. Tlio clearing oiierations
now being carried out by the C.-P.K.
company were never expected by
iheso mocking solium, and right now
they would rather belittle tlie whole
thing than make fair allowance for
It as on asset of the city.
It is these things that Mr. Beattie
proposes to draw attention to in his
booklet. The pamphlet itself will
be printed on tho very lines! paper,
and there will Iio more space occupied bv pictures than by letter press.
Thc whole will make, a really ortis-
tic little booklet, striking in its
dainty cover and general get up, and
of a size convenient for mailing.
The write-up wilt coyer all and more
of the points we have enumerated,
dealing particularly with' the advantages of jhe city fur Industrial purposes, and, ths views will set forth
overy scheme, of interest in the city
and Its environment. It is the very
best form of advertisement the, city
could get, and the Council were well
advised In accepUng the proposition,
Of course thoy are laboring under
great financial difficulties, and ... too
much cannot be.expected of them.
Otherwise in all the circumstances,
nnd particularly in view of the -fact
that the city has never heen previously advertised,   they would have
of    the citizons hnvo taken of    its, ,       ,■-.         «•-  „-»-».—w.
stabillty and its future.     Ths view |?!?e Artter *»J«SV. .closed, with, the
has even gone further that this. It
has grown with these good old business "Thomases" to such an extent
tbat not only do they decry any direct advertising of the city, but they
absolutely deprecate the use of advertising IN the city. The Standard la under peculiar obligations to
the businessmen holding such views.
Our point is that the view is essentially and entirely erroneous.
The modern industrial system is a
thing of almost a  century's growth:
Some uf its results ore not entirely
defensible, but they are none the lees
unmistakable.     Advertising, its uses
and it£ necessity to every form     of
modern business, is one of these outstanding principles.     There is     no
getting away from it.    Even in    "a
small   community such as ours    it
has its uses, and the man who knows
how to advertise, and does so, will
do better, much better, than the man
who declares lt to bo an unnecessary
expense.       Of course,    on advertisement; no more than any other bus!
ness outlay,    will not always bring
ln direct returns.    We would not assert that the merchant, say. who advertises in today's Standard a  new
line ol summer suits, would require
the city constable tomorrow to keep
the crowd in line and in order, But
we will say that the merchant   will
dispose   of    his goods   much more
readily and ijuickiy than If ho    bad
never advertised them at all.   More
than thla, wo know that special advertising   has produced special    results.       We know this because     wo
have seen the figures, and two' comparative   totals are    more eloquent
of 'results than two columns of evon
tli* most silvery prose.    Right here
in Ladysmith the merchant or business man    who Imagines he Is going
to keep tally    with   his competitor
who    advertises Is wilfully deceived
Ho is   away iiehlnd    the times,    i
shrunken relic of the fossil era     In
business, with Just aa much show to
move ahead.
Now, as regards the city itself, can
il be argued for a moment that it
hat ever received the advertisement,
even the publicity it merits and
demands? Has any one of its nu-
inoroda potential developments and
natural advantages been adequately
publish - Not one of them. What
is there In the town to advertise?
■aid some of the citizens, and they
imagine they have settled the whole
question. Why they have only opened it out.    It Is not what there Is
first o.ler. However, it is a first
step and we have no doubt .the result will lie satisfactory to all, parties.
an Interview, had-'wlth^Str Robert
Hart, director general of Chinese
customs who arrived there yesterday
on board the Str. Yoroka bound for
England. Sir Robert said he waB
travel ling comfortably. His chief
trouble wits insomnia and he hud
not had a good night's sleep since
November. Fearing a physical and
mental breakdown he had to get me
dical authority.
Sir Robert said ha tried to get
two years' leave hut could only get
one. Whether he returned to China depended on his health. Re China's future he said he was a great
believer in the Chinese. Once they
were organized after the European
plan, he declared, they certainly wero
destined to become a powerful
tion, but with such an immense mass
time they are organized along modern lin-s. even if they are aggressive which they are not, they will
know how to temper their strength
with wisdom.
As to the ".Yellow Peril," Sir
Robert said he thought that while
the Chinese are likely to become formidable competitors In Industrial and
trading matters, they will not cause
tho world any special trouble.
Broadly speaking,. ho said the Chinese view Is that military development is retrogressive hot progressive.
At tho ,samu time they will be strong
enough to hold their own against all

An echo of the Rolfson kidnapping
case, one act of which was played
in Nanaimo recently, appears in today's Victoria Colonist In the following article:
Foiled in her first attempt' to recover the custody of her child which
she kidnapped at Nanaimo recently,
but was arrested by her husband In
whose charge the child then was,
Mrs. Anne Rolfson will make' another try to regain possession other
offspring. She la now ln ths .elty
endeavoring to ascertain the whereabouts of her husband and child.
Three weeks ago Mrs. Rolfson visited the city in search Of the  child.
Several months ago Mr. and    Mrs.
Rolfson    -were an   apparently happy
couple residing    in California,    the
husband left for Seattle to look   for
work und' soon rumors of hie    misconduct drifted back to tho    woman.
She loft for Seattle where she  found
her husband was living with another
woman.       Divorce proceedings   were
instituted hy Mrs. Rolfson who   obtained an order giving her the custody of her nine-year-old son. Rolf-
eon, however, had obtained a prior
order from the    Seattle    court   by
which be took the child and left for
Canada.     He want first to Vancouver and when    hie wife arrived    on
thl* aids of the boundary, was* operating a bioscope show at .Vans!
mo.    Seeking the aid of the    local
police, Mrs. Rolfson soon located her
husband and child.     She went    to
Nanaimo, met the child, who readily
cams to her, and was on her    way
back tb Victoria when the husband
had her arrested at Ladysmith on a
charge of kidnapping the cbdM.    As
the order of the Seattle court    waa
not ol any effect on this side of the
boundary the woman mi forced   to
relinquish    possession ol   the child,

the husband was allowed to drop.
Mra. Rolfson returned to the city
and left for Seattle where she took
the necessary steps to secure legs!

"I think the peoplo' iif Vancouver
will bo glad that wo havo ronchod
the last phaso of tho riot. I hopo
somo good will como of lt, that at
least it shall holp us to understand
oach othor better than wo hnvo ,ln.
the past."
Commissioner King, Into Saturday
thus closed tho two-week's Chinese
claim inquiry, his third Investigation
within nino months, nil growing out
of tho momornblo riot of September.
After revising tho last nf the IHO
claims, each of which was separate!-.'
examined and. revised, Mr. Arthur
McEvoy, on behalf of the . Chinoso
claimants, thanked the commissioner
for hls courtesy, and kindness to tho|
several claimants during the sittings.
The , first inquiry growing out of
tho riot was that into the claims of
tho Japanese, who wcro awarded in
the neighborhood of $8,000. The
second was that, In the following
month, November, into tho cause of
tbe Oriental influx. Had the Chinoso
government had a resident consul, in
the Dominion tho claims of'the -Chiii
eso government would havo boen Investigated at a much earlier ditto.
Rumor has it that Mr. Owyiing King
will be tho first! Chinoso consul in
Canada, and that he will bo stationed at Vancouver.
Tho claims -of tho Chinese total
nearly $28,000. Tho amount thoy
will be awardod will likely bo In tho
neighborhood of $25,000.   -.-
That will mako tho cost of tho riot
by the Injury to tho business and
property of tho Odontitis, (88,000.
The damage to property owned by
white citizens has nover been osllmat
ed, no claims having ovor been made
against tho city for compensation*.
Making a fair estimate for this nn'il
Including the amount paid out by
the Orientals for flroarnis whloh Com
mlssloner King disallowed, both in
the claims of the Chinoso and'Japanese, and adding the cost of tho extra
pollco protection, tho cost of the
three Investigations and tho printing
of the official report, tlio five-hour
riot probably cost $50,000.

and the foreign producers. Tho price
for Black Diamond and Franklin

the competition of Wellington coal
and all othor grades are roducod
British Columbia coal must pay an
import duty of 67 cents a ton, but
this handicap Is not rogardod as a
soriouB obstacle by coal dealers.
It is claimed the Canadian mines aro
able to operate cheaper than thoso
on the American side of the lino,
and neither transportation nor tariff handicaps will stand ln tho way
of a bitter fight for control of the
local coal market.
Notice thut the price ol Amorlean
coal has been reduced was given to
dealers last night and this morning.
At the same time dealers claim that
their profits have been cut so that
thero is little moro than a drayage
profit ln hauling the fuel.
The Wellington mines have an advantage over the collieries of this
state In a choapor labor supply and
a larger per contugo of lump or domestic coal. Not more that 10 t-or
cent, ol the output of the Black Diamond mine is lump and tho lowor
grades have to be sold at a low figure for steaming purposes. Wellington runs high in lump coal.
