The Islands Want
Better Service
Mr. George Kent, the well known
real estate dealer oi Vancouver-,* was
in the city last Thursday, and c.\)
piessed himselt greatly interested in
the effort that is being made to se-
curo direct passenger service between
Ladysmith and Vancouver. During
tho past week Mr. Ken* has been visiting the islands and every place he
went he found the people were anxious to get direct boat connection
with tho' terminal city. They would
be willing to compromise on. a twice-
a-wcek service, and would even go so
far. as to subsidize a boat that- would
aid them in the't eflcrts to secure din
rect access tq the Vancouver market.
It is thc intention of sever-al men at
Ganges harbor to erect in the near
future a tourist   hotel, and in  this
.way they intend to attract thc   attention of tourists   to the most  at-
' tractive resort to be found any place
on thc Pactf.c ccast. .As to their
trade with Vancouver, thei islands'
population arc practicalljP prohibited
trom the advantages of business connection with thc big terminal town.-
In this respect they arc even worse.;
oft than tho City of Ladysmith.
Mr. Kent has a scheme that should
work out all right, and prove satis
factory to the islands people and the,
citizenis of Ladysmitli. It is to havo
a "regular daily boat service between
here and Vancouver, the boat to -call
twice a week at tho islauds. In this
way the, passengers between here nnd
Vancouver wtuld have" thc delights ol
travelling over a scenic route of unparalleled beauty, and being able to
extend their- trade interests at the
same time. Quite true, there would
bo a littio delay "during the days -the
boat made the islands trip, but it is
not luely that-that would be viewed
in the nature c-I a serious' drawback.
ll may not be generally known that
thite Wands arc developing at a
phenomenal rate, and that the popuU"
tion in. a 'Very . short period ol time.
%ill be in a position to ship a great
surplus oi farm products, and with
Ladysmith grow.\ng so rapidly as' it
has this past year or so, it can read?
ily to seen that there would be considerable advantage in close boat
connection with the island farmers.
In any event, with the islands population and tho cithtens ot Lndysmith
both using the proposed boat between
here and Vancouver no doubt could
be entertained as to the success ot
the enterprise from a business point
of view.
Vancouver Hotels
Drawthe Color Line
A despatjh Irom Vancouver says:
Vancouver hotel proprietors drew thc
color line very strictly Tuesday night
when Jack Johnson, the black heavyweight champion attempted-to put_uy
tot the night. Coming up town from
thc steamtr the colored man with his
wife and !riends;wcnt first to the-St.
Francis hotel. Johnson.was politely
told that the hotel was filled to oVetf
flowing. The clfcrk was' very sorry,
"nit, really, Mr. Johnson, il could not*-
be helped. They did not havo any
room, and that was all there was to
it. Thc fighter vtdok the turn-down
with good grace the first time, but
vvhen.it was repeated in five other ho
te's, especially $2 a day,houses, h>
was abusive. Mrs. Johnson said
very little, but \vas plainly very much
disgusted at thc turn of affairs. Late
In the evening they obtained accommodation at thc Dominion, a,-(Town
town house. Johnson'spent most, ol
the night at the.home of George fc&r
, is, a boning instructor, Sporting
men here are inclined to comment on
Johnson's lack of definitencss in making possible arrangements for a li, ht
with Jeffries. When tho newspaper
men asked him it he would fight Jell,
he invariably replied: "Ohr yes, I will
tako on anybody." But when It came)
to pinning down the black man to details, Johnson sidestepped across the
Pacific to some more or less irrelevant story ot his treatment in Australia. Time and again he refused to
talk Jeffries, Plainly he does not intend to meet the white champion for
a year or two anyway.

In its issue of Tuesday, March 9th,
the Vancouver World hit's an editorial
that may have a damaging efle. t on
the dilute oi Ladysmitli. The arti.
de begins thus:
"Thc announcement tliat the Wellington Colliery Company, ot which
Hon. James Dunsmuir is president, is
about to create a toal port at Boat
Harbor, six miles from Ladysmith,
cannot but he disquieting to the business men anl property-holders, thc
latter mostly miners, ol the present
town."
The World's error, ot course, is apparent to all. lit is not the Wellington Colliery Company, of which Hon.
James Dunsmuir is president, that is
about t& create the coal port at Boat'
Harbor, but the South Wellington
Coal Co., a company in which Hon.
James Dunsmuir has no interest
whatever, and lhe development ot ils
property tributary to Boat Harbor
cannot retard the growth of Ladysmitli in any way.   v
Cndoubtcdly Ladysmith depends
greatly upon the Duif.miuir coal interests for existence, and it so happens that the Dunsmuir inlcnsls,
with one property excepted, are all
tributary to Ladysinilh. The Extension mine has a long lite abend of
it, and tho new properties now. being
opened up by thc Wellington Colliery
Company are even more convenient to
Ladysmith than the present works.
If thc World had hcen paid hy interested parlies to ruin Ladysmith, il.
could not have eaincd its money belter than by publishing the article of
last Tuesday, for undoubtedly then-
are many who are not conversant
with the facts anl v.ill readily ao
cept the statement thai Ladysmith ij
doomed.
As a matter of fact, Ladysmith is
pcihaps more prosperous than at/
city of its size on lb? American continent, and    the circuhlstatlei)   that

Class
Candidates.
Tha Ch.oniele has always hecn willing to concede that the Nanaimo HctJ
aid has no successful' competitor on
this continent. Moreover it is prepared to go on record as expressing
thc belief that thero never l.as been
and never will be another pa[cr just
exactly like the Herald. It is a triumph of literary excellence an I has
reached the climax of mechanical Ingenuity. The fact that the editor ot
the Herald now claims a subscription
list only approached hy tlie New
York World and the Chicago American is net to be regarded as anything
more than n modest contention of an
exceedingly enterprising tad unpreten,-
tioiis journalist. That the Herald
editor can boast ot a large subscription list in Ladysmith is a tribute to
thc literary tasks of its readers in
this city, and its frequent uncomplimentary references to this city .must
be tn'ien as the advice of a well-irt
tenlioned rrntleman whose onlyi,
thought is to keep us in the rig.it
track. Whin The Chronicle made the
statement that the Herald had persistently misrepresented Ladysmith it
only gave voice to a sentiment lhat
has been frequently expressed here Jjy
re.tdcr.i of the Herald, and strange to
say that although the Herald has recently changed its policy in this regard the Ladysmith people still believe thivt Iho Herald is never so, happy as when engaged in the time-honored pastime of belittling this city
and its commercial development.

HARRY HUGHES
Jacobite Claimant to
British Throne
With the death af tlie Princess Maria Theresa of BavariaJ wllo expired
at Cannes,., the Jacobites of England
and the continent arc preparing to
maVc one of their spasmodic demonstrations, proclaiming her son, .Prince
Ruppwcht of Bavaria, the. legitimate
King of England.
It is not believed; thst this demonstration will be of any particuffar
significance,, consisting probably of a
proclamation by. the leaders asserting
that tlio deceased princess wrp blood
successor to James II. and that Edward VII. is therefore an impostcr
and should bo forded from his throne
in favor of Rupprecht. "'Simitar demonstrations by the Stuarts or Jacobites have happened at frequent intervals throughout thc past flCI years.
Thc chi'im they make to thc throne is
based upon ths historical ousliiij of
James Stuart by a packed English
parliament in 1689 and tko appointment of William of Oranrjo ajs his sue1
cessor.
Asserting that this dethronement
and crowning was ilk-gal, thc Jacobites declare that all kings and sheens
sinco have been'impostors, and that
the ousted Stuart dynasty r.a'e still
the only legitimate sovereigns.
The last furore created by tho Jacobites was in 1902 when they placarded London with proclamations tic-

Few names arc more prominent in
tho history of Western Canada than
that of George Hills, "the. first Bishop of British Columbia. Particular
interest is being evoked by his memory just now, seeing that fifty years
have,coma and gone since he took up
the great work of his life out in the
West. Hills was an Englishman, ot
very'considerable distinction. During
thc forties gnd fifties of last century
ho did really first-rate work as a
parish priest, first ot all at Leeds,
t/'.icn at Great Yarmouth. In short,
l:e .-aim.' to bci regarded as one of tho
leading members of the younger clergy ot his day.
The year after British Columbia be.
came a crown colony, which event
took place in 1858, Hills was consecrated in Westminster Abbey to go
out to British Columbia as the first
bishop. The whcro'withpll was provide! by tho Baroness Burdctt-Coutts,
who [|',ve £25,0(0 for the. work. Altogether thc new bishop worked in
