the committee     rooms are well sup- j

conditions are being made to     look

t is true they raised a   head tax to
1500 oh   Chinamen, but still    they
came.     Mr.  Smith's reason for   not
protesting against this treaty     was
thnt lie had received no signed petition from his people in British Col*
itnbJa, so thia large immigration of
Orientate wns simply due to the Bri-
Columbian'fl failure to send     a
petition to Ralph Sin th at Ottawa.

White citizen.     In reference to
the G.T.P. it wns snld that     those
Orientals     were   employed     because'
llure wns not sufficient whito labor.
This wns not true, as there were 25-
000 young    men jr Scotland,     that
juld have been brought out nt   the
snme    expense    that it was costing
them to bring the yellow men,   and
we would have had a   clenner country nnd laller work,
On vhe     question of better terms,
Mr.  Shepherd did not intend to sny
much, but it wasn't exactly a   question of better terms, but one of fair-
terms to the people inBritish Columbia.     In every other province   in
Canada     the people were taxed     to
tin.' extent of §3.07 per head,   while
iu British Columbia they had to pay.
the enormous tax of $12.61, thereby
bearing a   burden uf $9.5.0 per head
just because    they lived in a  rough
country, and were paying into     the
Doibiuion treasury 3 to 1.   We were
perhaps the richest province iu Canada, and it was costing two thous-
a»4 dollars   per   mile   to buiM.railroads   iu   parts of the province     a-
gainst three hundred  dollars in   every other part of the Dominion.
. I   He also s.iJd that if it werebribery
to ui'ier a   man a  drink of beer and
a   sandwich at   thesu election times,
how     much    more Is it bribery     to
build    wharves, remove rocks    from
! harbors and install   telephone     systems  all  over the islands,  at     this
Mute hour, a   death-bed repentance as
it were.
Me had also seen pictures of Sir
Wilfrid Laurier placarded ail over
Victoria, with the words ''My country is my love" (laughter) but that
he (Mr. Shepherd) was inclined to
think Sir Wilfrid was a hit of ' a
flirt (more laughter).

The game on Saturday was never
very exciting and on the whole wns
rather slow. Victoria had a stronger team than when they last played
■Ladysmith and started oil with a
fierce burst. Hartley was onrly called upon, and local rooters began in
stridant yells to tell thoir favorites
what to do. As a result tho boys
quickened up and fojreod a corner,
Adam got his hoad to tho Jiall, but
punted tho leather up aguinst tho
crossbar, and then, following a pretty piece of play by Jock and Grainger the former shot past. Victoria-
in turn got up and earned a fruitless corner, and then by a pretty
dribble hy Warburton, Graham received and shot hard into Boaney's
hands. Viotoria broko away and ;
Struthers chooked on tho penalty
line, but prolorrod to try a littio
fancy work rather than to kick clear
As a result he was forced Into tho
touch line boaten thoro, and thc ball
was centred. Somo one tipped it
up and Hartley took a left half arm
swing. Tho bnll never appeared to
duck, but Hartley all the samo missed his lead and the sphere sailed
into the net. A soft goal—the softest ever Hartley loft past him. This
was fifteen minutes from tho start,
and the homo boys now put n Jittle;
life into the game. Provins ran ovor
and then Victoria ran over and then
Victoria forced a cornor.
The equaliser came ten minutes later, Adam putting the finishing touches to a pretty piece of combined
play initiated by Muin. A minute
or two lntor there was a rally in the
Victoria penalty area, and tho defending right half deliberately handled
tho ball. Referee Hailstones awarded a penalty and Adam easily boat
Beaney. Struthers at the other retrieved a dangerous situutiun and
Lorimer just managed to boat
Grainger when a goal looked certain. Beaney next saved two clinking shots; but the ond wus again
beaten. 'Grainger tipped the ball up
from the goal line, and Jock got to
it with his head, lloaney wus only
able to partially clear und Provins
tipped bock. Grainger aguin caught
the bull with his head; antl Adam
headed in. Altogether it was a pretty piece of work chiof credit for
which Is due to Gruinger.
Hartley was first called on in the
second half and tho goal wos lucky
to escape from a rally in front of
goal. The homo boys thon rushed
away and Provins was clear away
when Deakin brought ' him down.
Jimmy next took a bang, but miss-J
ed. Tho gamo at this period wus
prettyfslow, but in response to tlie
yells of the hooters tho home hoys
livened up some. Jimmy got number four and thon Provins, after Adam had tricked Lorimer and mado
the position, smashed the hall into
the, not for tho fifth timo. It didn't
look as if there would bo any more
scoring, but Hartley furablod in front
of his charge and tho Victorians got
Victoi-ia Ltne-Up.
I    Tho Victoria    eleven    was as   follows :        ".
Bucks—Lorimor and Deakin.
Halves— Johnston, O'Connor, Petticrew.
Forwards— Huxton, Findlay, Sod-
ger, Sherrit, and Tait.
The game culled for Sunduy afternoon between A. and B. Tennis was
again something of a fizzle. The A
teum were short Hartley and Gruinger and the B. team only mustered
eight mon. Don took Hartley's placo
and tho gamo wont on with 18 men.
Tho writer got his flrst glimpse   ol
ahead of the second man, Jack Roe
of the Wert End Y.M.C.A. The early
pace told on Meadows and he was
third, three minutes behind Roe.
Twenty thousand people gathered
in and around the Exhibition ground
nnd Impatiently watched the schoolboy races while the long distance
grinders were preparing for their
struggle. Finally the Marathoners
paraded down the track behind tho
18th Highlander' band. When Mayor

Ralph Smith held a  political meeting on South Gahriola Island- last
as treachery   to |nlght      Quiu R  nmyb9r of UVm)t
attended    from Nanaimo    and were
there with liberal applause.
Mr. James Lewis occupied Ihe
chair and at the conclusion of' the
meeting told the audience in no'  un-
there is a clear margin of three
goals. Tho Victorians put up a better game than they did in Victoria,
and played pluckily and determinedly right through. The team, however, was nono too woll balanced and
had sevoral weak places, lk'uney is
a sharp custodian and with a littio
more experience will compare favorably with tho best. 'Lorimer -was as
good as ever; but was distinctly out
of humor and inclined to bo mean.
In this respect it may bo said that
it is always unsatisfactory when the
home club has to furnish tho referee.
Bradshaw was down to olllciutc but
failed to turn up. Hailstones, with
the approval of Lorimer, was glvon
the whistle, and no one could object
to his decisions. Handling in the
penalty area, as Lorimor knows,
means a penalty kick; but in the
writer's opinion tho only thing that
justifies such a decision is a particularly dirty or dangerous foul or ono
which stopped the scoring of a certain goal. It was an unfortunate
thing thnt thero should havo bcon
a penalty; but Hailstones wus not
to blamo for It and ho is ntaoluto-
ly impartial.
As regards tho home tonm tho one
outstanding feature wus tho display
of- Hartley. In justice to himself it
should bo snld ho did not want to
play, as his fingers are still troubling him and he is out of condition.
With this allowance It must bo snld
that he put up tho poorest gumo of
his life. On tho othor hnnd It i.
the flrst he has played for Lady
smith, and tho 'rcmombrnncc of the
many sterling exhibitions hc has gl
ven ought, to some extent, to discount criticism for ono failure. Thc
backs wcre all right and thc halves
lett little to be desired.
The only fault in Ned Wynne's ploy
is his feeding. There Isn't a halfback in tho   province can give   him

of indemnity to Turkey, aa a condition of recognition of Bulgaria's independence. A note to that effect
will be sent by the Bulgarian administration to the powers. The
only question the government ii
willing to negotiate Is the purchase
rights of the Oriental Railway Company.

there would be no mobilisation of

Ottawa, Oct. 10,-
The Orand Trunk Pacilic
which was expected to pull tho government through this campaign,
proves to be the greatest load the
ministers have to carry. In overy
particular, respecting this enterprise, tho people find themselves deceived.
The cost is admitted by the  ministers to be more than throe   times
Ing, and by tho    employment of
host of useless officials and agents.
Four years ago the ministers argued that the net earnings of the
road would be sufficient after the
first ten years, to pay interest on the
supposed cost of $26,000 per mile.
But thoy do not now pretend to
these earnings will pay interest on
$75,000 per mile. The government
hns been paying four per cent, interest on money borrowed. To meet
the charge will require a net profit
of $8,000 per mile. This fixed
charge is a burden that no such
road can bear. The C.P.R. fixed
charges are $850 per mile. Those of
the Canadian Northern are $710. After 30 years the C.P.R. Is distributing In profits only $1,900 per mlle-
What, then, Is the chance for the
Grand TrunU* Pacific to pay $8,000?
The pledge of the government was
lhat the Grand Trunk Pacific would
open up entirely new country. Yet
for nearly the whole distance from
tho Red River to the Rocky Mountains it hugs tho two older systems;
while millions of acres of fertile
land in the north have no railway
at all.
The original programme was to
carry the road through the Poaco
River country, crossing the Rocky
Mountains far north, and reducing
the mountain section to 250 or 800
miles. By the route adopted, the
mountain section is increased to 900
"milos, leaving the 500 of prairie
through the Peace River district
without railway connection. Tlie
change is good for the grafter element, as the government guarantee
for the mountain section will be
*fi0,lWO to $70,000 per milo, while
for prairie It would have been only
It will require $10,000,000 a year
net earnings to enable the Grand
Trunk Pacific to meet its obllga
tlone. That is more than the present Grand Trunk makes today with
much greater mileage, most of it
in thickly-settled country. It is
more In proportion to mileage than
is paid by lines twenty-five to fifty
years old, running through long
sottled country, with traffic originating all along the route, and with
feeders and branches bringing business from all directions.
Tho contract has been so changed
that If the company falls to pay
the government cannot take the road
and try to sot back the" ^250,000,-
000 that the country will have Invested is it. All ths government
can do in case of default is to havo
an agent appointed to take the net
earnings of the road—if there are
any—and divide thom botween the
government and the private bondholders. The government preference was swept away by the supplementary agreement.
A Boston financial paper shows ths
annual fixed charges of the Panama
Canal over the cost of operation and
maintenance, as $6,000,000 a year,
and points out that ths like charges
on the Grand Trunk Pacific will be
double that sum. This critic wonders why the old Grand Trunk Company should have assumed such an
obligation. ne does not Mem to
understand that the old company
has carefully protected itself and
left all the obligation upon the people ot Canada.
The government press Is now claim
ing credit for Sir Wilfrid's course in
forcing the withdrawal ot A. W.
Fraser, the candidate In Ottawa,
who has been mixed up In timber
deale in the west. Unfortunately the
Premier did not interfere until he
found that Fraser could not he elected. And ho has not yot interfered
with 8lfton, Turriff and Burrows,
who were the principals in the timber operations. Another unhappy
circumstance hae arisen. Mr. Fra-
rnr'i friends, when canvassing for
his nomination, mado the most of
the charge that tho sitting liberal
member was interested In the govornmont dredging. When Frnsor succeeded in turning him down, it was
shown that Fraser was a good deal
worse mixed up with timber limits.
So ho was forced to give way to
Mr. MoGlvern. Now it appoars that
the new candidate got a commission
on tho price of a building bought by
the government. This shows how
common these operations are.

As regards the Japanese phase of
tte question, the Liberal administration wae traitorous In its disregard
of tbe advantages of the special treaty with clause, restricting immigration, which had been proffered her,
and which Natal aad Queensland had
secured. The British Columbia contingent, save Mr. Kennedy, bad been
reoreaut to thcir trust in their program of silence in press and on the
platform. Why this servile silence,
the speaker demanded. By convincing argument it was disclosed that
cheap labor was wanted by the G.
T.P. But public sentiment had to
be satisfied with the Lemieux agreement. This allowed entry of 400
per year hut still there were far-
reaching immigration frauds. An
avenue was open from the Flowery
Kingdom to the road-bed of the G.
T.P. Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Rudolph
Lemieux and Mr. Fieher were referred to In rather denunciatory terms
for their pro-Japanese sentiments,
and In eloquent words the young
men of the country were appealed to
to keep this a white man's land.
