1 "On Saturday, November 2nd, tho
Herald published the following news
item, relative to the locations mado
on the West Coast:
" 'Yesterday, Walter Miles and his
brother, of Ladysmith, came ovor
from 'Alberni by automobile on their
return from tholr fourth trip to tho
West Coast of tho Island. Mr. Miles
■has with him a quantity of black
sand containing colors of gold that
thoy washed out on lho claims .recently located by thom. The ground
is beach diggings and aiso a bank of
gravel, about (10 miles from Alberni. It is reached by travelling overland some six miles from Uclulot,
at which point the steamer Tees
lands passengers and freight. Tho
ground located created considerable
excitomont some years ago,' and at
that timo quite extensive development
work was dono, a flume, costing, it
is said, somo SIO.0O0, was built.
'1*0 company are sold to havo taken
out ill the neighborhood of $80,00(1
during tho , time thoy workoil the
mines, but owing to dissensions, tho
work wus stopped and tho.ground
finally abandoned.
" 'The Miles Brothers think tho
ground is good and will endeavor to
interest capital in .again opening up
and working tho gravel banks.   Tlio
—  old flume still stands,   but is   badly
broken down in' places.' "

On the matter being brought before

The Thetis has started but she has
1200 miles to make before she reaches the castaway's who are in rather

are marooned on a glacier and although they have plenty of provisions tliey will not have anything to

Tho Chairman then stated that the
platform was open to any ono who
had anything to say either fiir
against Socialism, or to contravert
anything the speuker of tho evening
hud said
Hov. Air. McMillan, of tbe Presbyterian Church took tho platform. In
his opening remarks, he confessed
that he had been rather disappointed at not hearing an exposition of
Socialist economics. He himself hud
no guarrol with tho Sccialist proposition for the collective ownership
of tho machinery' of production and
distribution, but ho did not believe
thnt tho workers hud the ability or
intelligence to manage modern industrial undertakings.
Turning to the temperniice question raised by the speaker of the evening, ho said ho wns informed that
on an average Si2i'0 per your was
spent by tho minors of Ladysmith in
drink. He directed their attention
to tho sodden intellects resulting
from such a consumption of liquor,
which unfitted the workers for mental ellort of any kind, lie disagreed
with the Socialists that the root of
thc evil lay in economic conditions.
Ho concluded that it lay In humup
nature itself. Tho Socialist IMrty

certain fixed sot of rules with which
the players ought to be familiar but
are not. Thero are, however, a number of rules w'hieh every player
knows, and the referee is there to see
that they are observed or thot tho
full penalty of their Infringement
(laid by the offending side. This
all lalrly easy; but tho referee has
largo powers of discretion, and in
blowing his whistle ho should be
guided by how far a mistake is Intentional, and by the 'advantage that
was derived from the mistake.
Taking an example. Suppose a forward has tho ball, and is making for
goal. He meets a half or a full,
back and dodges him. The latter
reaches out for a trip, but'falls in
his purpose. The foul Is there, and
the penalty is a free kick. .But, In
nine cases out of ten, in-givin a free
kick, the referee is giving tho advantage to tbo offending side. In other words ho is 'defeating the' very object of tho rules under w-hioh he is
directing tho game. For nn attempt
ed trip the whistle should only go
when tho free kick is going to give
an advantage to the side ofTondod
There is another point. In tho last
few games the writer has witnessed,
there'hiive been fouls awarded 'for
infringements of which only'the re
loree and Providence wero cognizant.
This toot! toot! toot! for all kinds
of trivial offences, often more imagin
ary than real, only tends to spoil
tho game. Nothing aggravates a
player more than bo be penalised for
an offence ho never committed, or
for a cause of which he is ignorant.
Almost naturally ho begins to offend
in earnest, and all the writer's' experience and observation go to show
that more games havo boon spoiled
by the too officious referee than by
anything else.
The handling question, too. wants
to bo treated vory lightly. Tho referee should be absolutely satisfied
in his own mind that a ball was
handled intentionally to gain an illegitimate advantage before blowing
his whistle. The same thing may be
A rough player
is hardly ever a dirty player. He
takes all risks himself, and gives nothing but what ho is prepared to
take. For instance, Faddy Hewitt
was severely criticised by a Victoria
journal the other day. Iii the present writer's opinion, tho Viotoria
pressman did not know -what he is
talking about. Paddy Is rough enough and reckless enough in all conscience; but thc writer has nover yot
seen him resort to shady matihods.
This question wants to bo ventilated. Even In England there hus
been a disposition on the part of
Drat referees to prohibit all fair
charging. Ii la a.l a mistake. Foot,
ball Is a robust outdoor gamo, and
no amount ol legislation can convert
it into parlor tennis. A man that
hat wolght has aa much right to his
handicap as tho man -that has Sliced
or thc man that has a pair of drib
Ming feet. Is a full-back to lie reduced to ono ineffective poke for tho
ball against a flying winger when he
could have charged him off the ball?
If fair charging is to be prohibited,
then tho game is to the spoody and
all ltt attractions and zest are taken
from it.
There are two more little points.
It is a mistake to think that a man
cannot Jump to hood a ball. It 1b
no foul If in coming down ho lands
on another man. The foul comos In
when a player throws himself at another who is ln the air with no other intention than that ol irrasslng
him. Again, any part of tho ground
within the four touch linos constitutes the Held of. play. Victoria referees have adopted the habit of
making a player stand squarely on
tho touch line. The rule requires
only that some part of hot'- feet be
on the touch line and that the player face the field oi play. Ho can fulfil these conditions and loo1 either
up or down the field, ond that is all
there is to it.
To get good and efficient referees a
system of examination should bo
drawn up by the Association and a
Kale of fees agreed upon. The latter
ia a necessity. A man cannot lie expected to lose timo and work and
Undergo all manner of Inconveniences
for nothing. There is some schedule
of expenses in connection with tho
Assoc ation at present, but this is
not enough. If good men' are to bo
got they will have to be paid for,
and with football on the Island in
its present flourishing condition the
question should be soriously taken
up at tho next annual mooting. • As
things are a man Is recommonded for
the position without anything very
definite being known as to hit experience of tho game and his know-
lodge of tho rules. "Thore Is no doubt
about It that ho should bt thoroughly tested In his grounding on the
rules, and only by such a plan can
efficient men be assured. The only
way to get men to' go the trouble of
qualifying In this manner is to make
the referee's feet high enough, not
only to cover actual expenses, but
also loss of time, snd all tho Inconveniences of tht office.
Importing Players.
Our friend on the Free Press hat
given us another token of Ms fraternal feelings towards us and 'towards the Ladysmith Football club.
It Is a constant puzzle to ut why the
years in succession, Ladysmith
should bo satisfied now, for Tviin is
a splendid full-back, one uf tho best
In B.C., and Hartley, as a goal keeper, is also among the 'best. Archie
Clegg, of Victoria, is back again at
Ladysmitli, so the champions should
make a powerful eli'ci-t to retain
their title, lt was also rumored
that Qunzun, Rogers and anothor of
the Vancouvor Thistles wore tried for
by 'Ludj-sinith, but these men are
not going to leave Vancouvor."
Now, in all one spieling the Standard has dono it has never once
charged Nanaimo with importing
players. It was quite ready to believe that a kindly and -bene-.oleiit
-Providence led tho educated and ei-
fertive feet of Howitt &i Co. to Nanaimo's hospitable shores. Whether
i'i-o\i.louce would have done so much
for Hewitt & Co. had they pussuisod
no pedui abilities, is extremely open
to question. But we nevor even
breathed the suspicion, and would
not have done so now had the article we have quoted not suggested
that thero was lessvof Pro'idencc
than ol design in the whole business.
Howltt, Crulckshanks and Harley
may have landed in Nanaimo by the
merest accident. On the other hand
they may not, and wo hae oor doots.
- But even if they were brought there
for the purpose of playing there is
nothing to be said against it—that
is, not new. Thc Island Association
in its -wisdom has ruled that these
men are eligible, and the same ruling makes the whole Thistle tonm <*«*
any other Mainland eleven eligible.
The only point on which these men
could havo bocn ruled out was that
ol regarding tho Island League as a
qualifying stage in tho competition
for tho B. C. Cup. When that point
failed there Is nothing in the constitution to prevent cither Ladysmith or Nanaimo from openly seeming thc services of uny number of
Mainland men. From our point of
view, tbe decision was a regrettable
one fro- Island football; but It is
there and the Free Press is right In
presuming that the champions will
make a powerful o.fort to retain
their title.
Tho assertion that "impcrting play
crs is not a new turn for Ladysmith" is misleading us well as malicious. Nanaimo players assisted
tho LudysniiH. .cum, it is true, and
no one '- re Is inclined to minimise
tho value ol their services. But thoro
woe no team then Jn Nanaimo, no
constitutional point was raised, and
tliey wero local men as well as Islanders. The uso ol tho wed "importing" in such a connection is erroneous, and w-o cun only conclude
it was used designedly to give u
sting to the romurk. There is no end
to be gained, no purpose to be serv-
uil by twoli back-biting "spiels." We
havo no iiersonul grudge to work oil
against the Nanaimo team or any
member in it. It is a fine eleven,
and, although naturally we think wo
have u, finer, the whole question remains to be settled; and we can leave
it at that.
An All-Canadian   Eleven.
Tho scheme which Messrs. Con.
Jonas and W. Ellis, ol Vancouver,,
have in hand of sending a team to
England to compote for the Amuteur
Association Football championship
of the world, ls making great progress under . thoir management. At
present they are considering tho feasibility of making thu teum representative of the whole Dominion. Mr.
Adam bus race ved the following loiter from thom, dated Fob. 25, 1008:
-Dear Sir.—Negotiations are under
way in British Columbia for the pur-
poso of sending a British Columbia
team to compete in the Olympic
(lames, to bo held in England next
fall, for the Amateur, Association
Football championship of the world,
und it ls practically' settled that a
team shall go, Tho question of
funds has boon studied out and the
promoters can seo their way clear
to raise tho amount that will lie required.
Some of tho most prominent members havo suggested, and tho others
have agreed to It, that Instead of
the team being seleotod from British
Columbia alone. It be seleotod at
the time ol tho People's Shield tournament from the teams' from all over
the Dominion and thus make lt t
Canadian Team.
The present Idea Is. for a committee to watch the tournament games
and select men to play a trial game
and include among the selected some
of British Columbia's star players
who may not be competing lh the
tournament, and from this trial
gamo select eleven men.
Start these eleven mon for England, play the n against a picked
eleven of Alberta, at Calgary say,
and if any men in the Alberta team
art worthy of a place ln the Selected Team take thom along too; of
course Alberta would in all probability be already represented on the
team by some of the Calgary Caledonians already chosen in ' Vancouver. At any rato this would give
outsiders a chance to qualify for the
representative team who, because
they wero not members of the Club
that won the Provincial Championship were not eligible to compote for
the People's Shield. Thit, of courts
might apply to the other Provinces
at wdl as Alberta.

New Westminster News.)
Over 600 enthusiasts of the grand
old game of soccer thronged to the
Moody square grounds on Saturday
to watch the struggle between tho
Rovers and the Thistles of Vancouver, in the semi-finals for tho B. C.
Cup, which resulted ln a draw, one
all. For tho first fifteen minutes of
the game nine men only faced the
ball for the locals, and one of those
nine was a man who, while a good
player end doing bis best, was yet
sadly out of practise, and only played to fill the place. With this handicap, those fifteen minutes passed
without a score, then came Bruce,
the new full back, and Lockhart, tho
latter pluckily taking tbe Held despite a game knee.
Two goals only wcro scorod, and
these from penalties, ono on each
side. The flrst was for a foul off
Turnbull, the rafereo claiming that
he placed both hands on a player
during a rush for the goal. The
shot was an almost Impossible one
to stop and It was no discredit to
the goal keeper that he felled to
save lt. The second was for a nasty trip on tbe part of a Vancouver
man and evened the score. Several
ugly fouls wers credited to the vis-
ltoet, ono of which may yet prove
the awarding of the game to Westminister, the Vancouver goal vesper
delivering a nasty kick to Locke; hu
was ordered from the field by the referee but refused to go. The re
feree, lt would seem, should have
stopped the game, but falling to do
so, the game should be awnrded to
the Rovers. The case will probably
be carried to tho league executive by
the management of the team, if not
by the referee himself, Haslott, of
Westham Island.
Both teams played a strong game
and both were exceedingly solid ln
thslr defence. The goal keeper for
the visitors put up a fins article of
ball, except ln the case mentioned.
Barbaree for the'home team, was
ever there when wanted, and nothing
missed him. The backs of both the
teams were good, but the Rovers
showed a weakness In tbeir forward
Une, which but for the excellent
work of the backs, might have proved disastrous. The forwards of the
wero strong, but thty never
broke through. The halves of thi
home team fed tholr forwards woll
Turnbull and Loamy in this position
doing grand work. Locke at contre forward played brilliantly using
hit judgement with good results, ably
backed by Watson and G. Fleming;
the latter, however, ls a much better man at back.
Special mention must bo made ot
tht now man on the team, Bruce, the
back, who figured In the dipper
dredge team. Bruce was at full
back, and his work was more than
had beon expected of him; he proved
a barrier that broke several lino
combinations on the part of tho
Thistles, and worked off a number
of tho genuine old country tricks
his opponents.
Should tho executive decide that
ths game will have tn be played oil
again, lt will almost certainly bo
demanded that It shall take placo on
New Westminster grounds, and. with
a stronger team, tho match ot tho
sbason should bring ths biggest
crowd of the const out to boost for
tho Hovers.

VICTORIA, B.C., Feb. 27.-At the
afternoon sitting of the Legislature
yesterday tlie debate on tlie budget
closed, and without a division tho
House went Into Committee of Supply considering a number of tho appropriations before the Houso ruse at
six o'clock.
Stuart Henderson, speaking for tbo
Opposition suggested that instead ot
investing the sinking iunds ot the in-
crlbed stock of the Provinco ln England it might bo brought tu the province and loaned at say 4 por cent,
or more. Thit would bt ot great
advantage to tho province and effect
a saving.
Parker Willlamt drew a pitiful picture of how hit constituency 'fared

Ht contended that the roads wero
mismanaged. A man bad been put

Ht referred to some of the roads being practically impassable. Mr. Pear-

stuck In ons plate so that lt was
necessary to carry ths packages he
had on tbe wagon about two hundred yards so that tbe wagon might
proceed light. Mrs. Harris and Homer had tried to fill up the holes In
one piece of the road, but found It
Impossible to get stones enough and
had had to taks ths rails from a'
fence. Mr. Williams thought the,
government should pay there women
for their work.
Ho took exception to the doing

buelnest connected with it in Nanaimo. I

Nunaiino, Feb. 27.—
The most Important feature so far
of the B. C. Union of Municipalities
convention up till yesterday, when
lho convention sut until 11 p.m., developed during the afternoon, when
Mayor* Boll of Enderby road his pa-
pur on the "Necessity of Batter Law
Enforcement," as published ia another portion of this issue. The pallor drew fourth a two hours' epirlt-
ed discussion of the proper way ot
arriving at a satisfactory application of tbt present laws on tho statute books. From the tone of the
different members it can easily be
seen that Nanaimo is not the only
city In British Columbia that bat
mot with difficulties In this regard.
As the discussion developed it was
apparent that there wort almoat as
many different ideal of coping with
tho situation as there were members
of the Union. It was generally con
ceded however, by every speaker that
there was a real necessity of finding
some better laws and better ways of
applying them, especially as regards
saloons and hotels, with reference to
the Liquor License Act. Justices ot
tho peace, police magistrates, weak-
kteed mayert aud the rttt of the ot-e*
floial machinery, municipal and provincial come in for more or lets criticism. While no drastic move wae
adopted by the convention at a result of the paper, lt wat quite apparent from the general remark*
that the matter will play a very
lively part at the next annual convention when delegates come back
aftor the matured thought of a
yoarjs study on it,
Mayor Bell recommended that License and Police Commissioners bt
elected by the people, instead of appointed as at present by the government. This It will be remembered,
is along tho lines of the suggestion
made by the Nanaimo Council on
different occasions. It however, did
not moot with approval of the Union, thoro being much diversity of
opinion on tho subject, many mem-
Icrs thinking it advlBublo to leavo
well enough alone.
The following resolution wns finally passed disposing of tho matter;
"Hesolvod,—That    this convention
endorse tho sentiments so ably     ox-
for legislation empowering tho election of license commissioners."

having their ships built in England
has a serious effect on Canadian
shipbuilding. "' ln eastern Canada,
several firms havo closed dowii. Canada, in the laat issue, says:
"To those British shipbuilders wlu
had seen the yards of the Collingwood Bhlpbuilding Company on thu
Georgian Bay a few months ago, the
news thnt the company had closod
down for lack of orders must have
bean startling indeed. Tho yard
was the largest and best equipped
of tho five stool ship building yarn*
on the Cauadian shores of tho great
lakes, but M. B. Smith, the superintendent, nevertheless asserted that
none of the shipyards in Ontario had
mads any monoy, and that at Collingwood tho company had hod to
.." 'contend with the free Importation oi
British built vessels, nnd with the
scnlo of wages pnid nt tlio shipyards
on tho American shores.
"Ws spent," he continued, "$50,
000 In bringing In Scotch and American shipbuilders, and ln perfecting
our organisation; and lt ls with u
groat deal of reluctance that tho decision to close down lias been reach-
ed. An offer was mado by our company to build two steamers for tho
Canadian Pacific railway at cost,
plus 5 per cent., in order to retain
our organization. But the O.P.R.
thought thoy could do better ln
England. If the outlook Improves,
wo may re-open our yard at some
time In the future, and it will- not
bo dismantled."
The municipality of Collingwood
voted $800,000 toward the equip
ment of the plant, which ls also freo
from municipal taxation; and in ad
dltion to this municipal aid the com
pany draws 3 per cent, per annum
from the Dominion government on

whin   these    wero the conditions
when    Collingwood was the busiest
shipyard    ln Canada— it waa    announced by Capt. Alexander McDou-
gall,   the president of the company,
that a second dry dock was to    bs
built.    It wos planned to make    It

tbo existing dock, which is the largest dry dock on ths Canadian shores ot tho great lakes.    The yard ut
Collingwood has turned out     mora
cargo tonnage than any of the other
Canadian lake yards, and there    is
much regret tbat    there ia such    a
poor prospect ol new work tor what
is without    doubt the best equipped
shipyard in the Dominion.
The fact that the Collingwood yard
and tho yard at Bracebridge, on the
Niagara rivor, are now both closed,
will add to the pressure on the Dominion government for tome decision
on the question of bounties. In ths
winter of 1905-6, when the tarill
commission was on its widely extended tour, the Hon. W. S. Field
ing, tho minister of finance, was
more openly in favor with the shipbuilders who advocated bounties in
aid of their industry than he was
with tlie representatives of any other Industrial interest. He was noncommittal towards most of tho petitioners, but both ut Victoria ani
Halifax his remarks left it to bo understood that if the shipbuilders
would agree among themselves as tu
bounty scheme, government aid
might be relied upon. The farmers'
organization, however, protested so
vigorously and so continuously
gainst the renewal ol the iron und
steel bounties—a renewal to which
government; were committed —
that tbey apparently dared not mako
good the half promises which tho
chairman of the tariff commission
had made to the thlp building interests. It It probable that with tho
ntw pressure that will result from
the closing of ths Collingwood and
Bracebridge yards a decision by the
government will'soon be announced.
A savage attack on hospital cooking is madt by tho New York Medical Journal. "In almost all our
hospitals," it declares, "the food
provided for the patients Is abominably ropulilve," and ln these institution!, It adds, cookery, if not a
lost art. ls Ignored. Tht lood Is
usually of good quality to start
with, and analysis would show lt to
be nutritious, but the preparation is
wretched, and no attempt to make it
appetising Is made. The result Is
that the sick man, with unutterable
loathing, takes into his mouth lukewarm decoctions of vegetables, wastes bis small energy la chewing lea-
thery steak, or struggles painfully to
retrieve from    his palate a hit    of

A motion to refer it to the executive waa defeated Aid. Glover spoke
strongly favoring that it be dealt
with in convention. He said lt waa
a shame that the Lord's Day Act
was workable In other provinces and
not here. He wanted a recommendation to go to the attorney general
asking legislation so that it could

resolution was ordered sent by mal!
to the attorney general, which will
answer the same purpose.
