Editor Ladysmith Standard,—
With your kind permission 1 should
liko to use the col&ims or tlie Standard to ask the Health Inspector, or
those responsible i'or the state of affairs, why a registered parcel, posted in s time for Thursday's mail,
should be hold hore in Ladysmith until today's mail?
Certainly, not on nccount of the
precautions, which we all know is
being taken, and rightly su, at tho
present time, for I was informed by
tho postmaster tin t the mail iu
question was ready >tnd could have
been shipped on WedSesdny; but was
not taken out of the postoffice until
Thursday afternoon: Then to cup
the whole affair, I was shown my
parcel (evidently overlooked) this
morning. Now that little parcel, in
valuo, just means a triilo over a
man's monthly salary, not much, of
course. Yet I think it shameful
that one dependent on the registered mail, should he put to the annoyance, nnd i>erhnp8 even loss, simply through what npjwars gross neglect or mismanagement on the part
of those at the head Gf affairs. I had
always thought it rather a serious
matter to delay H.M.'b mail, but
evidently I am mistaken, for here is
an unnecessary delay of three days,
and    when one     inquires he is told.
'Yes, it is too had."
Thanking you, Mr. Editor, for the

Mr. John Bell Returns From a Trip
to  the Charlotte Islands
Mr. John Bell has got back from
a prospecting trip in the Queen
Charlotte Islands extending over
two or three months. He describes
the islands as a terribly tough proposition for prospectors. The country is harder and more difficult to
traverse than here, and there is a
tromenduous rainfall. During tho
whole time he was there ht: tmys he
can almost count on the fingers of
both hands the number of days .1
was fair. The rain makes thc underbrush grow very thickly abd travelling is always hard and difficult.
Still the islands are being vigorously prospected. Largo numbers of
claims nre boing worked, and n constantly Increasing number are being
stuked. Mr. Bell is satisfied that
there is immense mineral wealth in
the islands and a few years will
work a big change in them. lie

It was evident to all those     who
reud tho Herald report    of Smith's
meeting in    Nanaimo    that tho proceedings had not been quite so harmonious nor so   successful as    they
might    huve been.       Whenever     tlie
Herald waxes emphatic it is time for
the reader to call a  halt, and     its
best ellurts to assume a  cheerful air
of conlidence ore blank failures, and
only serve to disclose tlie doubts and
lours laying like ice on tho heurts of
the Lil/oruls lor whom it writes. According to  the Herald,  there     were
quite lour hundred of Smith's    supporters present at the meeting,   and
the gathering was    a  personal   triumph for Ralph und augured success
for the party,     'iho Times is    evon
more careless of its hundreds.     The

Would' be about UUU persons present,
and in   these    must be counted    a
strong followiug of Socialists, while
there were also    somo Conservatives
in attendance.     Which Ib right? The
Tjuus is clearly out of it altogether,
and the    Herald is obviously giving
expression to what it wishes
facts rather than to    whut actually
were facts.
Take the meeting that was held
Ladysmith. The Herald described
it as the most enthusiastic meeting
ever held in our city, und the inference wus that it was solid for Mr.
Smith, lt was nothing of the sort,
it was Smith's meeting and naturally there wo* a full turn out of
hi* forces. A few Conservatives
strayed in, more out of curiosity
than any tiling else, and the Socialists looked in to see the fun. Yet
it is extremely doubtful ii a vote of
conlidence in Smith would have car
ried. We do not think it would,
and we are confirmed ia this opinion
by the fuct that our Liberul friends
did not ask for it. There is n(
surer test of a meeting and n<
greater advertisement of a candi
date.     A voto of this kind
into the affairs of the marine department by Judge Cassels was made by

and when asked why ths company
did not deal with the company direct witness wus unable to state reason. He had received orders from
the department amounting to about
three thousand dollars in all, and
his profits he estimated at about 20
per cent.
Oliver Dupuis, a wood merchant,
of Sorel, soid wood to the department on which profits amounted to
between twelve and twenty per cent.
Jean Baptiste Aussant, a farmer,

not by tender, but ut a fixed price.
He denied having puid commission to

ELIZABETH, N.J., Oct. 6.—Alter
suffering with convulsions at intervals for two weeks, Mrs. Harvey
Day, ot this city, died of hydrophobia today. Her husband*, a woman
neighbor and a mail carrier, who
were bitten by the dog which caused
Mrs. Day's death, are being carefully
watched by physicians, fearful of the
developments of hydrophobia symptoms. Mr. and Mrs. Day snd two
others were bitten by Mrs. Day's pet
dog in August last. The first indications of the dog's madness was
its attack on a mail carrier who
entered the yard of the home of Mr.
and Mrs. Day to deliver the mail.
A scientific analysis of the dog's
bruin gave evidence of hydrophobia,
and all the victims received the usual treatment for prevention of inoculation.
Hartford, Conn., Oct. 8.—Tho climax was reached today in tho throe

celebration of tho completion of tho
handsome new bridge ncross tho Connecticut rlvor hero. This morning tho
last stono of the bridge was laid
with imposing coromony hy the Con

craft took part in the exercises.
This nfternoon there wns a monster military parade, Including the
entire brigade of the Connecticut

Tho    resolution   'adopted     at the
meeting of tho    Victoria Association
re ids as follows:
"This association will take no
part in Sunday games, and if
the executive of the Pacilic
Coast League will not accede to
the request already made by the
Victoria Association, all such
matches, in which tho local team
is scheduled to participate, will
be forfeited."
This moans that Victoria will only
play their home games, and it is
hardly likely that either Nanaimo or
Seattle will go to tho expense of
trip to Victoria without thero is
return game in sight. The League
executive must therefore bow to tho
dictation of Victoria, or see that; city}]
drop out of the league.
It is a great pity for football

should have arisen. Also it must
lie said that it is rather inexplicable
that it should have arisen at this
particular time. First of all let mo
make myself perfectly clear. I am
not so very much concerned in Sunduy footbull myself. 1 tun myself

which more or less works seven days
of the week. Even the Colonist,
which so heartily commends the action uf the Victoria footballers, is
printed on a Sunday und sold on a
Sunday at overy depot between here
and Victoria, This procedure is no
more liked by the reverend gentlemen of Victoria and of the Island,
thnn Sunday games, but tlio Colonist, on this question affecting its
own business und revenue, vigorously differs from nnd defies tho dogmas
of the divines.
I belie.e also that the whole quVs-

that there Is some public sentiment

All the same, it would scarcely he
tho part t>f a true sportsman to
condemn a good cause iiecaiise of
tho excesses or hypocrisies of its
advocates. As society exists today
we are governed by the rule of tho
majority, and if the churches, departing from tlie precept and practice uf thsir founder, chose to invoke the aid of the law ruther than
rely upon th* moral appeal of tbe
Christian message, then wo must all
abide by tho result. Again, then*

nnd opinions, even of a minority. Of

There is a general feeling ubroad
that the second division of the league
has reached a degree of effectiveness
in point of numbers and skill, it
could novel' before boast of. Judged
by the constitution of tlie teams, the
fact of tlie cup holders figuring a-
mong them, nnd the wider zone of
tho second division's operations,
there would seom to be justification
lor holding such views. Birmingham, who were rclegati-d to this division at tho close of lust season,
have been playing w inderful football,
find their four straight wins at tho
opening of the season constituted a
remarkable porforniiinco, while there
is good prospects that this winning
streak will be woll maintained.

If they obtain the desired concession

they    would otherwise glvo in salaries, so     thut they will have gained
their point.     Tile giving of bonuses
is unquestionably the Inst word     in
the    degradation of    football.      It
means thut    men must,  in addition
to being puid for playing, bo ollorod
something extra as an inducement to

tho offering of bribes.    To what tho

The football association is drifting
in a truly melancholy direction, and
the unfortunate thing is that it cannot help itself. Its council must
realize to tho full that this altering
of gold to a man in the hope that

and uncouth insult to the vory nnmo

(Torunto News.J
The Laurier government has la-
nlentably failed to live up to the
promises which its members made in
opposition. It rode into power as
the champion of provincial rights.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier uwes something
of his fer.'ionnl reputation as ustat-i
esman to tho skill with which ho dc'-j
fended Munitoba ngaiust tlie inter-:
faience of federal ministers iu its
school nlTairs. A few yours later,
without warning, and in an underhand munnor, > lie deprived Alberta
and Saskatchewan of their inherent
right to conduct their educational
systems as they slluulil soo lit. At
the seme time lie withheld from the
new provinces the public domain that
wus their rightful heritage, thus mutilating thoir charters and crippling
their finances. Besides this his government has persistently encroached
on the jurisdiction of tlie provincial
legislatures by granting Dominion
charters to purely local enterprises.
The wrong involved is not solely of
it sentimental character. lt is by
this action of tho Dominion authorities that the municipalities aro deprived of their control ovor public
service corporations.
The government, pledged itself
lighten the burden of taxation,
reduce the annual expenditure,
to diminish tlio national debt,
customs levy per capita is $9 today
as compared with S-l  In 1896.     Including capital    account, tho yearly
expenditure is S110,00u,000 as compared  with S'l 1,000,000 under     tho
Conservative rulo.     And despite   an
abundant revenue, the nation is more
heavily in debt than it was     twelve
years ago.
Tho Liberal leaders, when they secured power, were to freo tho coun-
from the burd?n of "protection",
to drive a reciprocity bargain with
tho United States, nnd to enter into
mutunl preference agreement w th
Groat Britain. But tlio principal of
protection is maintained in full force
except in its application to certain
unfortunate industries. The Ameil-
enn tariff barrier is as high ns ever,,
and our purchases from the people of
the republic nre altogether nnd increasingly out of proportion to their
purchases from Canada. Wo have'
not yet obtained any special advan-1
tage In the markets of the Mother"
Tho size of the cabinet wns to be
reduced. The number of ministers
has been increased by the elevation
of tho controllorshlps of customs nnd
Inland revenue to the dignity of port;
folios. Bounties wcre to be abol-
o:l. Novel' before have cash subventions to specinl industries run Into tons of millions of dollars. Tho
civil servico wns to bo reformed. It
was under pressure from Mr. Borden
nnd tho Independent nnd opposition
press thnt tlio partial measure of last
session was brought down. The
parly press w-ns no longer to he pap
fed nt tho people's expense. Ono
western newspnpor nlone obtained
from the government S50.000 for
two editions.
Railway subsidies were to be abolished, but it Is costing the country
<*2nn,non,non to aid In the construc-
slon of n now transcontinental lino
which, for a hundred years nt lonst,
will be controlled by a private corporation. The settler and 'not tbe
speculator was to obtain the public
lands. But party favorites havo
been able to amass wealth by obtaining possession of portions of tbe pub
lie domain. The record of timber
limit deals, land grants and irrigation concession* under the present
regime makes amazing reading lor
old Liberals who believed in their
party as tho party of strict economy
and honest administration. i
Tho Senate was to be reformed and
public life was to be elevated and
imbued with new ideals. But the
upper chamber has become the refuge of defeated Liberal candidates,
and a subservient agency for the
carrying out of the government's
purposes. The patronage evil has
invaded every department of the publlc service, and vitiated tho administration of public altuirs. The promised elevation in tho tono of government hns not been effected. It is
not any more In evidence than the
zeal for economy which the Civil
Servico Commission hns declared to
be invisible Scandal has siccecdod

of subsequent ovonts thc former pretension* ot tho Liberal leaders to
superior virtue ond capacity for government make curious reading.
ness, and it was destroyod.
It is traditionally iliiltcult to
feat nu established government In
Canada on questions of policy. It
is traditionally eusy on questions of
administration. Canudlnns are extremely loyal to their party organization. It is a feature of Canadian
democracy thut it prefers to influence its government* by tlie pressure
ol public opinion to-changing thom
upon defined political, issues.
But let tho citizen of Canada onco
become convinced that his loyalty
has boen betrayed, that his country
being robbed, that tho national
character is being weakened, and a-
wny goes his cynical distrust of all
politicians, away goes his party affiliations, away go tlio political opinions of a life time. Off in a maelstrom of indignation, whirl machine
calculators, sunny orators, respectable apologists, clerical ediLors, with
the whole army of unscrupulous par-
tizans, nnd the citizen of Canada
stands shorn of his political conventionality, self-confossed ns tho vin
ilicator of his country.
Tho citizen of Canada is convinced
today thnt the Conservative enm-
paien is not the stage combat of
party warfare. Once moro, us in
history, tho Conservative party has
seized and expresses the spirit ot the
nation. Once .more tho best man
and best thought of Canada of nil
parties anil shades of political cor-
opinion are rallying to its support.
It will win because It is loyal to tht
country, and save for that reason,
no party should win a   victory.
Those who think' a people owes
loyalty to a party invert tho truo
order of allairs. lt is the party
that owes loyalty to the people.
Perhaps the Conservative part*,
once forgot that truth. But thi
memory of it* best traditions is
throbbing in the heart of the com
paign today.
Glutted with power, yet still ra
vening for more with tho nppotlto
less craving of a sated gourmand
thc liberal party can now only rely
upon the parasites, who have ruined
it, to maintain lt in olllce. It has
its I'rcstons, its Leeches, its Strat-
tons, its Fnisers, its Nixons, its
j Wagners, its TurrilTs, its Burrows,
its Siftons, its Pugsloys on the one
side of tho tray. The Canadian people are on the other. Can such a
combat be in doubt? No Cnnadian
citizenship will not hello itself.

MONTREAL, Oct. 7—At the annual meeting of tho shareholders of
the C.P.R. today the report of the
directors was unanimously adopted,
Sir Geo. A. Druuunond, Sir Sand-
ford Fleming, Wimot 11. Muioniot
Matthews and Robert Meighen were
re-elected. <
Resolutions were passed regretting
the deaths ot Sir Robert G. Reid
and Mr, Charles Drinkwator.     A fur
ther increase    ol* cupitai stock was
decided upon.
In moving the adoption of the rV-
port the president said:
The twenty-seventh annual report
of the company's affairs is befori
you for consideration and approval
The estimate of western crops made
a year ago was not far astray as
to quantity, but the quality was
seriously affected by bad weather,
and therefore the amount realized by
tlie producers was much below tho
average. About the ond of October
there wub a disarrangement of business affairs approaching a panic in
he United Stutes, and tho feeling of
uncertainty and distrust reached Ca.
nnda in a moro rational nnd pronounced form, resulting in a drastic
but prudent contraction of bank credits and a consequent shrinkage ot
business act vity in all lines of manufacture and commerce.
The crop just harvested is bountiful and of excellent quality, nnd we
have every reason to believe that
there will be an early return of
sound and active business.
Fair progress has been made during! the year with ull tho works and
construction and improvement that
there wero in hand, but it iB very
desirable that the several railway
lines now being built should bo completed before other work of a like
character nro undertaken and therefore your directors havo decided to
restrict operations in this respect tor
the present nt any rate. As explained in the annual report, you
will be osIakI at the special meeting
to be held immediately aftor this
meeting to sanction nn increase in
the ordinary capital stock of the
compuny from 8150,000,000 to $2u0-
000,000 and to empower your directors to utilize the additional stock
in such amounts from time to time,
us may bo desirable in connection
with the company's capital requirements.
It is not easy to designate in advance with any dogree of particularity the purposes for which money
will be required except in tho matter
of rolling stock. In the six years,
1902 to 1909, thero has been un ln-
rronse in your equipments of fi'59 locomotives, 842 sleeping curs and
day conches, and 26,190 freight cars,
at nn approximate cost of 887,000,-
000. This is equivalent to one locomotive every throe working days,
one passenger car overy two days,
nnd fourteen freight cars every day
during tho entire iieriod of six years,
and yet the prospects nro that within the next six weeks the demand
will bo in excess of the supply of
freight cars.
It is due to the public and in tho
best interest* of the company that
no effort should be spared to meet
the reasonable requirements of shippers along your lino, ond, therefore,
we must continue to build or purchase locomotives and cars ns quickly as the development of traffic may
warrant. In the ordinary course of
events the volume of traffic on your
lines should increase with a lair degree of rapidity and an expansion of
traffic necessary Involves not only
additional cars and locomotives but
enlarged accommodation aud greater
facilities to care for it at vory many
new places over your 9,500 miles of
railway, and in providing these, big
sums of money ore quickly absorbed.
You will, I am sure, recognize tho
desirability of having your financial
arrangements in such shape that
your directors can, without avoidable delay, secure funds for your purposes nt intervals as circumstances
may justify or require, and to that
end will invest them with tho proposed power. Tho distribution from
the Innd interest account will bo the
same in the current your as in the
Inst, namely, one pcr cent in two
somi-nnniinl installments of one-hnlf
por cent each.
At tho meeting of the board subsequently held, Sir William C, Van
Home was re-elected chairman of the
ESCAPING Ihonrd, Sir Thomas G, Shaughnessy
president, and David McNicoll vice-
president of the company, and tho
executive committee was appointed
as follows: Lord Strathcona, Sir
Thomas G. Shnughnessy, Sir William
