•urposes    should    Tie clearly understood.   Many people wore under   the
impression    that     the schools were
maintained by a'government   ffrant.
Thoy   were     not,      Tho government
+4-+4«f-f.f++++++.f.|.+.^++,A.+ Iff rant barely    covered the incidental
-*- - 'oxponses..  The schools  cost thecit*-
000 outside of everything- they
received from the government. A
good many people did not know this
and laborer! under the misapprehension that the government maintained
the schools. The cost to the city,
outside of all the assistance ihey received was greater than the total
amount of the whole \-cnl estate tax.
The tax for health purposes of 1
mill on the dollar had never been
levied before; but it was needed and
would not bo felt very much. . The
by-law was thon rend a second time,
and it was decided that nt tho next
meeting the Council should go Into
committee of tho whole to discuss It.
Under the head of New Business,
Mayor Nicholson said that he attended the last meeting of the Citizen's -Ijeague. It was decidod at
that meeting that the Council thould
be nsiced to engage n man tn canvass the town for the purpose of ascertaining how many of the residents
and merchants would take electric
lights and the approximate number.
He had expected that thoy would receive a communication on the paint.
Seeing, however, that he wns at the
meeting in person, together with other Aldermen, it might have been assumed that no communication was
necessary. However, It was something that would have to bo done.
Aid. Haworth said ho thought it
would be a waste of time. The first
thing the man would be asked would
be: "How much are the lights to
be*/" He could only reply that he
didn't know. Then ho would he told
"What is the use of coming here,
then?" It would be just throwing
money away to send a man out on
suoh conditions.
Mayor Nicholson said that it had
to be dono before estimates for a
plant could be figured out. If it
wero a private company this was tho
(Irst thing thoy would do. Whoever
went round would have to state aa
nearly as possible tho figure at which
they could supply the lights. Ho
could not, of courso, givo the exact
cost.
Aid. Haworth said that the last
proposition submitted to the Council was figured out at a dollar a
light of 16 candle power. It was
too much. He could not see how,
If lights could be supplied at Fernie
and Michel at 50 cents the lamp,
they should bo asked to pay a dollar hore.
Mavor Nicholson—I expect we will
get It at that price here, or less.
Aid. Matheson said tt was a flrat
necessity that they should know how
many lights would be required. If a
man came to him hs would toll him
how many lights he would take. He
would never ask him about the price.
That question would come up later;
for, if the price was unreasonable he
wouldn't havo the lights.
Aid. Campbell also expressed htm'
self In favor of the proposal. He also
asked if tho Vancouver real estate
agents who came Into town to peddle lots wcro boing charged for a license. If theso agents had a right to
pay, they should be made to pay.
Mayor Nicholson thought that   for
q canvasser thoy should havo a man
whoso work and Interest was In tha
town.    Ho thought   that  Constablo

A DAIUNO TRAIN HOLD-UP.
ST. rAUL, Minn,, Feb, 8.—A daring hold-up was perpetrated on the
Burlington road in the St. Paul
yards this morning.
"Give that signal and you are a

by Drakcman Wayland as he was a-
bout to signal the order for ths
train to pull out. The order was
given by two masked mon both of
whom had a revolver in each hand.
The train was loaded with valuable
freight and was being looted by two
bandits at the time. Tha train waa
on the Grout Northern track bound
(or Minneapolis where ths cars wars
to be transferred to the Soo Line.
Wayland was hold in check by one
man while the other calmly loaded
a truck with all the freight It could
carry and It waa carted away under
the very oyes of the railroad employees who wore helpless to interfere. The robbers made their escape.
The conductor ol tha train was In
tbs office at the time attending to
his running orders.
| The train waa loaded with valuables bound for Canadian points and
much of thla was stolen. Special

running tholr wood yard night   and
unties, both in American and Canadian cities as to the most expeditious way of snouting the vagrant. So
soon as thoy ' left Lafiysmith they
lust uny influence they might have
fur securing work,
on this point hc might say that
the methods adopted at the .Extension mines were much fairer than
that which had been put in force in
-s'unuimo. There one-third of tha
men had been discharged. At intension the management' preferred to
give all tho men a share of what
work there was. *-,uw, they needn't
build too highly oa the construction
of this railway. White men would
only get a Job if they could beat the
J up on his own terms and that they
couldn't hope to do so, ' Let the men
get together, formulate their demands, and they could trust to the
Socialist members mit only to ex*-'
press -fJumi, but to secure their recognition.
Before'calling on Mr. MnTuntas. M.
P.P. for Grand i-'un,s, tne chairman
informed the meeting that the Ladysmith local hod new headquarters
on First Avenue, and, asked lor the
support and attendance 'ol all Socialists.
Mr. Mcimtis then briefly addressed
the meeting, impeaching the capitalist system on the grounds that even .
in normal times thore was always
suffering and poverty, that the
wealth of the world was being concentrated into- fewer and fewer hands
—that the system bred class wars,
and that it destroyed individuality.
Dr. Curry, of Vancouver, followed
with a speech ln which he endeavored to show that Capitalism waa destroying itself. The worker waa not
able to purchase the quarter ot what
he produced, and under the rule . of
the' trusts, his purchasing power was
groking* less. This meant that manufacturing countries were coming
more and more dependent (or their
industrial existence upon exports.
But tho old markets could not keep
the wheels of industry going and the
_!.; ware^xl»uj(t«xl. Japan
and China were beginning, to manufacture their own goods, so was
India, and tbe world was on the
verge of the greatest industrial depression it had over known. The only remedy luy in Socialism. Give
tho workers tho lull value ol their
production and there would be no
necessity to export anything. He
believed the time was at hand and
that in very few years time the present industrial system would tumble
to pieces.

CONCERNING OURSELVES
The editor is conscious that for the
last few weeks he has hardly boon
living up to his ideals. The Stand-
aid has not been so "newsy" as he
would liko to see It aud this is particularly applicable to tho "Local"
und "Personal" columns. For the
rest ho does not think that the stundard has ever failed to do what it
promised to do. The ovoiits transpiring in the city havo all been
faithfully and adequately Chronicled.
Of course, it .may bo that all the
happenings iu the town are not recorded. But it is hardly the fault
the editor. Ue does not claim the
power of scenting news, aud he onu
hardly be expected to report an
ont which he never know to have taken place.
It is right here that tho editor
would ask the assistance of his
friends and readers. It is his work
to collect news, uud he is afraid nei
ther of trouble nor time in the uis-
ehal-go of his duties. But ho needs
assistance. He does not ask foywrit-
ten repputs of uvents. Ail ne requests is that he shull be ncitiflod

ALMOST A    RIOT   TO SEE BODY
OF MURDERED KING.
LISBON, Fob. lO.-Thoro was almost a riot this afternoon on ' tho
part of tbo populace to get Into the
catlHxIrtll where tho bodies of King
Carlos und Crown Prince Louis are
lying in state.
The crowd which was waiting outside for a chance to get u last sight j
of the murdered king and his son,'
was so great that the police worej
unable to close the cathedral • doors i
at the hour appointed for the beginning of the ceremonies of tho interment. It is estimated that no less
than 20,000 persons.were striving at
ono time to moke their way into the
cathedral. The police and tho gendarmes made fruitless efforts to
drive tho muss bock from the portal.    *
tho people in check. The surging
multitude thrust thc police to ono
sldo and forced in a sido door to the
cathedral through which lt poured
into tbo main edifice. Tho Cavalry
was finally summoned to disperse the
crowd und found it necessary to
charge before tho peoplo wero moved.
There wore no casualties.
Tho bodies of King Carlos and the
Crown Prince Louis of Portugal ore

tho cathedral of Son Vinconte.
Long before tho portals wore opened a great crowd had congregated on
tho streets before the building- as

filed through for the lost glimpse ot

At 2 o'clock p.m., the coffins will

This much can be said of most trial

simply execrable, and certainly it

INTEHMEDIATES WIN.
The Free .Press cn Monday gave
the following account of the game
between the local and Nanaimo Intermediates on Saturday:—
A. TEAM" 	
Ooal—Bradshaw.
Backs-—Hewitt ami Lorimer.
Halves—Bufty, Johnson,   Harley.
Forwards—Blundell,  Orninger,   Adam, Ornham and Williams.
B. TEAM.
Ooal—Pcden.
-Backs— Graham and O'Connel,.
Halves—Farmer, McKinley, Thnrk-
eray.
Forwards— Telford, Cruickshanks,
Johnnie   Morrison and Peters.
The A, team got down right from
the kick off and Graham in two minutes made moro mistakes than he
has hitherto done all the season. He
was distinctly «i»Y color, and nover
played anything approaching to his
usual game. His mistakes wero
promptly takon advantage of bv the
attacking forwards of the A team,
and, in five minutes, the colors of H
team were lowered. It was the direct result of bad tackling and worse
kicking, Still Pcden had time ' to
pick up and throw away. Instead he
took a kick, the ball banged up against "Fanner and bounced into the
net.
The second point came n mlnuto
later, again as the result of miskick-
ing. Adam got through, and, in e
mix up with three men, came out on
top and nearest tho ball. Poden got
no chance cither to kick or handle
this time and the boys in red and
white wero two goals up.
After this the B boys settled down
to their play, but their lifeless, ineffective forward work spoiled every
movement. Johnnie held on to tho
ball too long, Telford was useless,
Arthur was below form. Cruickshanks alone showing any ability to
forge ahead. The defence stood off
the attack for the rest of the half,
and the score remained at two to
nil In favor of tho A team.
For the -second half some alterations, were made in the teams. Bradshaw, Hewitt and Lorimer changed
places with Pcden, Graham and
O'Connell. The A team forward line
was thus pitted against the men
who in .tho first half had kept their
goal intact. It would have licen ns
well once a change wus mado to have
changed the half back lines too, and
also to havo transferred Grainger to
Telford's place. As it was, Harley
had only Cruickshanks to watch,
while -Thackeray had:the strongest
wing in the field to cope with.
Tho first point in the second half
was earned by Grainger, and stood
out as by: far the prettiest piece of
individual; work of the game. Ho got
-the hall.from Adam and not seeing
the rood clear to pass out to Blundoll, took tho loo side of Lorimer.
Johnson butted in on the othor side
and Hewitt horo down in the front,
.loo hold' on his way In spite ot the
hustling, and suddenly taking a bank
completely boat Bradshaw with a
grand shot,
Then, came tho .turn of the boys In
white, nnd strange to say their goal
came as the result of a fugitive piece
of combination work. The ball wns
passed out to Peters on the left and
from thero put into tho centre.
Cruickshanks got.to it'and tipped to
' Johnnie.' The latter had no opening,
nnd pushed -the hall along to Morrison who drove It Into tho not. Tho
A team again t took up the running,
and onco Adam after heating Hewitt, put across tho I goal. Blundoll
had almost a freo kick a yard or
two from the sticks, but mulled his
■hot. The game ended with tho
score:

island or the Province can furnish,
und ho certainly nold them. Heading
chuck intr, tackling—he was all there,
and his placing is thu strongest feature of his play. Hurley, on the
other hand, wus up against Telford
and Cruickshunks. Telford was the
weakest man ou the field, und practically Harley wus left with only
Cruickshunks to look after. No
doubt he played a hard gumo, but
Thackeray thoroughly won his pluco
on the day s trial,
Tnero is another point. Whero thero
is so little to choose between players, surely the legitimate island
player ought to got the place. This
is not to say that Thackeray should
have got tho position through sentiment. Ho won it and deserved it on
his play. But Cruickshunks displaces Uralnger, On what grounds?

line, the Wanderers were more effective and deserved to win. They wero
continually, with tho exception of a
few minutes, attacking close in m

half. The team worked up In great

Though not brilliant, Callander,
Hughes and Cloke wero useful insido
forwards and could bo depondod to
play unselfishly.
Of tho locals, Walker's ploy in goal
was' un improvement on his Inst
game. Bo wen at left back is iin
proving evory match and on Saturduy broke up and spoiled a lot of
tlie Ladysmith forwards' work. Killeon wns also iroori, but his position
is now to him und he has not yot
got onto covering his goal at a critical time. Tho halves woro a trio of
vory hard workers. They hold their
opponents well. Jacob nnd McEwun
were tho best, though Martin ran
them closely. With the exception of
Allen, who was away below his usual form tho forwards displayed plenty of determination and dash.
Though not showing quite the same
understanding as tho Ladysmith van
they were better individually. Ishor-I
wood wus splendid and wus in front
on the shooting and he made many
good runs and centres. Thom and
James played well but put up a better game against tho Wests a few
weeks ago. Fisher is a determined
and hard working forward. His unselfish play and good handling of the
ball was noticeable.
Although several lives woro loBt in
the recent flre in tho Parker building on Fourth avenue, three tiny
gold fish wcre ablo to survive ths
flames and smoke. Men at work on
the ruins found in tho wreckage on
tho socond floor a glass tank containing three gold fish as active and
playful as ever. j

Although the socond trial ol Harry
K. Thaw for tho murder of Stanford
White, attracted vory little Interest,
compared with the first trial last
winter, still praise was hoard very
frequently of the manner in which
Judge Bowling, tho presiding justice, conducted the case. The rapil
way ln which the case progressed
was a revelation to the bpnch and
bar of the city. He kept both prosecution and defense at work nlmost
without cessation and as he lopped
off much of the tedious testimony
that encumbered tho first trial, sav-
ed a great deal ot oxpenso to tho
taxpayers. The record that ho
made ln conducting tho caso has
caused him to bs ono of ths most
talked of men in tho public oye at

Their attempt to rush the doors of

by tbe police, who had a sharp sklr

whom were arrested for disorderly

of coal deposits in this province and
tho proximity of the sources of supply to the market, the cost of coal
to the consumer In British Columbia
should be much less than at present
is th« case; and
Whereas the excessive price of coal
in British Columbia has the effect of
retarding and preventing tho establishment, in this provinco, of industries depending on fuel for supply;
und
Whereas much of the product of
tbe coal mines of the Province is being exported to foreign markets and
sold at a price that enables it to
compete.with coal fronu other countries in such foreign markets.* and
Whereas a belief exists that nn

sons or corporations controlling or
owning such coal mines to maintain
tbo hiffh prices now hotnft charged to

Therefore bo It resolved, That an
bumble address be presented to His
Honor the Lieutenant-Governor by
this house praying him to request
the Dominion government, through
tho proper channel, to cause an inquiry to be instituted by the Do-
mdnion department ot trade and commerce, to decide whether there exists a combine or understanding between tbe owners or controllers of
the local coal mines of this province
whereby an excessive price is charged to consumers in tbe province for
coal produced from said mines, or
any of thom.
In support of It he pointed out
that it was estimated that tbe
Crows' Nest areus possessed thirty-
nine billion four hundred million
tuns of coal, and tbo areas at Nanaimo six hundred million. Yet in
spite of this there has been a shortage of coal in Vancouver lust sea-
sou. The wholesale price of coal
was S-L50 per ton of 2,240 pounds,
and tbe retail price §7.50 per 2000
pounds or $8.46 per 22-10 pounds.
In Sau Francisco tbo price ranged
from 50.50 to $7 wholesale per ton
of 2,210 pounds. Tho cost of production at the Vancouver Island
mines was put at S2 to $2.(50 per
ton and at tho Crows' Nest at $1.50
per ton.
In New York the bituminous class
of conl sold from $2.50 to $2.75 per
The Dominion Iron and Steel
Co. purchased cool at $1.24 a ton.
Ho thought It only fair that thc Dominion government should investigate coal prices.
John Oliver felt that from the remarks of the minister of finance
made a few duys ago, thero was
ground for an investigation. It
should be made, ho felt by the local
authorities instead of the Dominion
government. He did not approve of
the round-abodt method proposed,
but rather favored an immediate in*
qUiry by tho provinco. He moved,
seconded by Mr, Brewster tho following amendment:
That ull tbe words of tho resolution aftor the word 'province' at tho
end of the last recital bo struck out,
and tho following words inscrtod in
lieu thereof, 'and whereas there is
reason to believe that the laws for
the protection of workors underground in coal mines aro not being
observed. Therefore bo it resolved
that a select committee consisting
of live members of this house be appointed with iostructlons to Inquire
into tlie truth of the above allegations with power to call for persons,
papers, books and documents, to examine witnesses under oath, and to
report their findings, recommendations, and the evidence to the
house."
Mr. Huwthornthwaite wanted tu
know why Mr. Oliver proposed to investigate the violation of the Coul
Mines Regulation Act at this time.
Mr. Olher thought it a suitable
lime.
Premier McBride said this was beyond tho jurisdiction of tho province
us it. related to trade and commerce
With respect to tho violations of tho
law In the Island collieries, the Premier observed that unless thore was
good ground for such allegations
care should bo taken not to make
tbe statements. There was a system of mine inspection and a general re-adjustmont of iho staff was
proposed in view of the fact that
mines wcro being opened in Nicola
and in Kootemty.
Mr. Hawthornthwaite thought It
looked as Jf the Conservatives and
the Liberals were preparing for an
election. It was not tho consumer
who was robbed by tbo price uf coal
but tho miner, Tho laws were being flagrantly violated. Some men
were working 10 hours a day. The
mines of the provinco wero inefficient
ly regulated. There was a larger
percentage of accidents in the mines
of tbo provinco than elsewhere. Tho
percentage of accidents in British
Columbia was 15 os compared with
2| and 2j In New Zealand and In
other countries. The mines were
not properly Inspected and nover
would until worklngmen dominate!
tbs legislature. Thero were 1,000
Orientate employed In the Vancouver
inspectors. Tbe figures given in the
answers showed the number employed by the colliery, but not those employed by the contractors. The white
miners did not dare to complain or
tbey would lose their places.
1'reiuier UcDrlde said:, "If my
honorable friend is prepared to moke
any complaints with regard to the
condition of affairs he has just out-
iued 1 will have an investigation,
and give him an opportunity to
make good."
Mr. Hawthornthwaite said be bad
called the attention of the attorney-
general to what was going on time
and again. The examination which
qualified Chinamen for mining at
Cumberland consisted of questions,
put this way; "You heap savee
mining, John?" "Yes, I heap savee," and this was the examination.
Hon. Mr. McBride said there was
nothing to prevent Chinamen being
employed underground. Section 4
was declared ultra vires of the pro-
( vince. The premier further added
that he was advised that the Chinamen who worked underground at
Comox got exactly the same wages
as white miners. There bad never
been a complaint against the examinations. He stated this to check
auy feeling of unrest.
Darker Williams thought that the
public having allowed the public utll
ity to fall into private hands was
not entitled to protection when the
owners combined to raise the price
of coal.
Mr. Oliver's amendment was lost,
and the resolution of McGuire was
carried by a   vote of 25 to 11.
Mr. Hawthornthwaite asked if it
was the intention this session to
amend the Settlors' Rights Act so
as to extend the period of time during which settlers could put in a
valid application,
The rremler reported that the matter was under advisement.
The University Bill passed its second reading, after Stuart Henderson
had oxpresscd disapproval of It,
The Coal Tax Act amendment pass
ed its third reading.
in reply to Mr. Oliver the Premier
suid ho hoped in a few days to be
able to make an announcement with
respect to the G.T.P. matters. A
draft agreement bad been taken to
Montreal.
