Aid. Dier and Aid. Haworth, the
committee appointed by the city
council to select a site for the electric light plant, lost no time in attending to their duties. They vent
over all the ground that seemed
available and have decided to recommend to the council a point on Esplanade at the corner of Metbuen
street. It Is tha best.' place tbef
could find, but there will have to be
a spur track built In from the bunkers In order to have easy access to
the coal. It Is not believed that
there .will be any difficulty in arranging thla, and If the council move
as quickly as Aid, 'Dier "anil tiaworth,
lt will not be long until the plant la
in operation. This haste Is desirable
inasmuch as a number of citizens are
contemplating the installation of gasolene lights, and if there was any
prospect of an early production of
electric light, there would be no need
of going to the expense of putting in
gasolene lights.

On   Monday   night while Mr.   and
Mrs. Stewart were ascending thc big
hill near tbelr residence tbey   heard
cries.    A   few  more   steps brought
them face to face with a lady   and
gentleman who had had a miraculous
escape from death.
It  appears   that  a party of Chemainus people had been to Ladysmith
to see the Jubilee Singers and were
returning by rigs.   Mr. Gilbert,   tbe
well-known employee in the store ot
the lumber company, and Miss   Mc-
Gee, a   nurse   from   the Chemainus
hospital, who accompanied him, were
tbe unfortunate pair and how   they
escaped with   their  lives is nothing
short of a miracle.   While they were
descending the bill, some of the barn-
ess came undone and the rig following too closely upon tbe horse frightened   him.   Mr.   Gilbert remembers
little   more than that  Be saw   the'
horse jump tbe high cribbing.
Mr. and  Mrs.   Stewart   took . the'
pair to their bouse and sent for Dr.
Williams, who   soon   arrived.     Mrs.
Stewart attended to the two unfortunates while Mr. Stewart roused Mr.
Whltcomb    out ot bed and went   to
look for the horse.   They tound blm
in a sorry fix but after carefully, removing the harness they got him on
to bis feet and then began the work,
of taking, an animal with three legs
up the steep embankment.   Mr. Stewart put tbe horse in a loose box in
bis stable and on examination found
that nothing but a severe sprain to
one hind leg marred him.   The horse
was well bathed with hot water and
rubbed with linament and made   as
comfortable as possible tor the night.

The game on Sunday between the
local teams, Winnipeg vs the City,
played before a big crowd, was full
of surprises. It couldn't be called a
first-class   game, because there   Was

Ladysmith to win the game, and it
should, prove a good one.

back to life and strength, that tho
state may take him from ber and

long term, is the daily task ol Mrs.
Mary Adams at the Deaconess hospital in this city. With a bullet-hole

Adams, shot while trying to hold) up

eve, paralysed on one side, is gradu

his youth, and bestowing again upon
him the same tender care that she
gave him In the days of his childish
Innocence when a mother's love gave
her unshakable faith in the future ot
ber boy Theodore. It Mrs. Adams
has any hope that the fates will

her own son sentenced to the penitentiary after she brought him trom

Adams has heard the warrant read

I to Vancouver,
money paid to Japs for lish is never
spent in Lndysmith, nor in Canada,
but is sent to Jupnn. This is a dea<)
loss to .Canada, and also to Ladysmith, as it keeps out thc white fishermen who arc trying to build up n
lish husincps and who pay taxes to
the city. It should be thoroughly
explained to the people that fish kept
alive for two, thrco or six weeks ovo
not wholesome food. The fish thus
offered for sale are liopt In boxes four
to five feet square, ere never fed, and
arc kept thero so long that tbey
turn blind and are covered with
sores. In this condition they cannot
be wholesome food.
Now, Mr. Editor, just think of a
butcher keeping a cow standing in a
lake with nothing but water to drink
for three weeks? Ho would he prosecuted lor cruelty and nlso for offering for sale for human tnod nn animal that hod been treated in that
manner. Now, sir, this is just the
way the Japs ke?p and treat tho codfish they are peddling through town,
and tt muet not be forgotten that
lofrosy Is caused hy eating diseased
fish. It. is time tlio hen,tli inspector
was looking into tho matter.
Mr. Editor, fish should be killed at
once when takon from the water. This
in what thc white fishermen do, and
It makes n big difference in tho taste
The'you can get good frosh fish. People
ship Another thing, medical men will tell
you that fish in n diseased condition
is likely to produce a looseness of
tho bowels. . j
Cruelty of thin kind should be stopped at once, nnd I would like to have
tbe views of others on tbe subject.
Any one who doubts this statement should take a trip out to Cow-
ichan Gap and see for themselves.
Of course, the Jap caught fish may
be cheaper than those offered far sale*
by the white man, but the latter Is
the best so tar as health' is concerned. The white man's Ssh is killed at
ones and then taken to market, so'
of fish when cooked for the table,
should think of their health, and not
buy cheap, starved, diseased fish;
Have a white town and encourage
the white fishermen. Keep the Japs
out of the town, or we may find
them digging coal at Extension and
elsewhere, and also setting up stores
of all kinds.   Then what?
