however, the Dominion government

The doctor treated tbe subject, all
the way from "love at first sight"

They love with vigor and purpose,

Yours respectfully,
Medical Officer.
Messrs. II. Fulton and A.  Robertson    were appointed   to audit    the
books, which they did on Thursday
'night, finding everything correct.
There was some discussion of the
hospital question towards tbe close
of Lho meeting, but no definite action was taken. The officers, of
course, all recognize the need of p '
hospital and aro willing to do any
thing to,help the project along. But

pelo with each other, and tho winners be again drawn as before, and
^^^^^^^^_ final tie is played. |
The lots shall be drawn and tho conf
petition ployed on grounds selected
by the committee.
(j. In caw of a draw an extra half
hour must be played. If the game
remains drawn after the extra half
hour ft shall be replayed aa the committee may determine.
All questions of eligibility, imal
|mentions of competitors, Interpretations of thc rules or laws, as woll
as all matters in dispute, shall bo
referred to tho committee whose decision shall' be final.
8. Tho proceeds of matches will
bo pooled, nnd after paying for. mo
I dais, advertising, grounds, and other expenses of the-matches, the balance to bo divided among the teams
'competing pro-ratio of their travelling expenses.
9. The committee shall have the
power of choosing referees nnd lines
10. In addition to the Shield tho
committee will present medals to
the winners, funds permitting.
There is no fault to be found with
the rules and it is to be hoped that
all the eastern teams will come to
the coast and play. The Calgary
team are tho holders, and it would
deprive the competition of the great
jer part of its interest did they not
appear to defend their title.

you ure supposed to command trade
-- respect as the case may be.      Of
course it does not always work.    It
bus  nover  worked    with   Ladysmith
Football Club.     If it had been     tho
meanest,  most insignilicaut aggregation on the Island, or in the province it could not have been     more
systematically     ignored or slighted.
The i-ittuicliml bus only been in exist
euce about throe months; but during
that short time it has had occasion
to point out to almost every    newspaper in tlie province that the Ladysmith Football  Club held the championship of    British Columbia    and
the Pacific coast.
Facts, said the Scottish bard, are
chiels thnt     winna ding, and there
rtalnly is     not   a  dent in Lady-
nitli's title to the B,  C. and Pacific coast championship.     Yet in ths
Herald of Friday morning there    is
article dealing    with tlie establishment of an International League
' headed "Nanaimo in an Internation-
I nl League."     The towns that     will
comprise the lenytue    are San Francisco,  Portland,  Seattle,  Vancouver,
Victoria and Nanaimo.     Ladysmith
is conspicuous by Its absence.  Holding the only international championship there    Is in   existence in coast
football, they are epso facto not entitled to a  placo In an international
competition.        Which is about     as
.strong a  reductio ad'    absurdum as
ild Euclid over demonstrated,     Tbe
idea of Lho league is after all only
an extension of tho trip which Ladysmith took last season; and, haying
originated the scheme and succeeded
in it, the club is to be shut out. But
perhaps it is not so much ignorance
as four that underlies this exclusion, ^j
business.     Maybe  what looks     like ,#•*
slight is in reality a compliment
It is just possible that the other
clubs in the province have decided
that, their only chance for international honors comes in after Ladysmith has been shut out. It will
be easier to say after tbe game ■ in
! Nanaimo today.

tho last vestiges of tho great and
commanding roputntion it had for
years enjoyed in English .journalism.
Now the Thunderer is in the hands
of the Pearsons, the Philistines in
old English Journalism. The great
Pearson paper is the Express. , It is
the desperate rival of the Mail. The
separate managements have reduced
sensationalism to a science. Thoy
burned the British Legation at Pekin und massacred every whito occupant of the Embassies over a whole
front pa-re, with every circumstance
and accompaniment of bloody violence and frenzied horror. It is into
these hands that t u 'Times" has
fallen. It will probably thunder as
much as over it did. but thero is an

A strong and extravagant opponent
of Chamberlain's industrial panacea
One day, the next found Hannsworth
a loud and vigorous advocate.    But

reputation, which, a few months ago

It is, however, a different matter
with the "Times." Tho policy of a
generation can not be violently

the newspaper. There is then little
(ear ot the policy of the paper being

It is just possible that -in spite of
the absence of ail excitemont over
tho municipal elections, there will
yot be a contest for tho Mayorality.
It is nt. least to bo hoped so. Anything Hint will stir the people from
their fatal lethargy and awaken them
to their responsibilities as citizens is
to be welcomed. The town wants
rousing; tlie pimple need educating to
tho necessity of cultivating a public
spirit. A contest for the Mayorality cannot but create a public interact, nnd indirectly may result in directing proper attention to tho Council and the affairs of the city.
Quite a number of names has already been mentioned for tho position. Mayor Malone, it is under-
stood, will seek re-election. Somo
friends of Mr, A. J. McMurtrie have
been trying to persuade him to run,
and Aid. llickle has also had pressure brought to bear upon him. The
name of Dr. Dier has also been men-
tionod und Mr. Dan Nicholson has
also been requisitioned to stand. Of
these Mr. McMurtrie refuses nomination, and Aid. Bickle cannot afford
tlie necessary timo away from his
business. It is more than probable,
therefore, that there will be a con'
test between Messrs. Malone and Nicholson.
From the point of viow of the pub-
fie it is a pity that the contestants
have not come sooner out into the
open. Neither gentleman has yet
announced publicly that he will be a
candidate for tho office. This is not
as it should be. The office of Mayor is surely of sufficient responsibility and of enough importance to the
city to niorit keen and open competition. In neighboring cities, placards are out, addresses have been
issued and public meetings arc being held in favor of the various candidates. Hero the whole thing is regarded moro or less as a joke. Municipal office is looked upon as a
nuisance to bo avoided if possible.
All this has got to bo altered and
the sooner the better.
The sharpest conceivable corrective
would bo -a keen, honest fight for
the Mayoralty. Perhaps before this
issue of the Standard goes to press
the fight will be on and tho contestants on the platform. Both men are
well known in the city. Both havo
served a term in tho Mayor's chair,
and both are men who can bo trusted to discharge the duties of the otto the utmost of their ability. .

Paris, Jan, 8.—A dispatch from Us
bon eays that a romarkablo scandal
haa arisen in the highest society
thore, following a discovery recently
made by fishermen on the sea shore
near tho city. Tho men were going
to their work at an early hour,
when they heard a fcobie cry which
seemed to come from tho ground beneath their feet. Being superstitious,
they were about to nee from the
spot, whon suddenly one of them
came upon the cause ot the sound.
It was a baby two months old, partially burled in the aand. The little
one woe taken to the nearest police
station, and Inquiries wore instituted which led to tho discovery of a
domestic drama in tho highest Portuguese society.
The mother of the child I* well
known, and during the absence of her
husband on service ln the Portuguese
African colonies, she had become entangled in a love Intrigue. When
she heard of her husband's Impending
return she set to work to hide her
disgrace. Whether she personally deposited the child in the sand ia not

great sensation in spite of ths   *f-
forta of her relatives, who are in-
fluentlally connected, to hush the
matter up.

Wattors, however, soon made a dif-

six heads out of seven, scoring pairs
in ovory one, ho peeled Bono at tits'

It will be remembered that the adjournment was made to enable the
lawyers for the railway company ti
produce'evidence aa to the agricultural value of the Fiddick larm, the
suggestion being that it was uu)
land suitable for farming, and could
not therefore have been taken u;>
with that end ln view.
J, H. McGregor, called for too
railway company, deposed that he
had examined tho Fiddick tarm nr.-l
found only ll uras which he would
characterize as agricultural lands.

H. McGregor    during his inspect.'
of    the land, estimated    that there

F. D. Little, ln reply to a question of R. V. Bodwell, K.C., sail
that there was a scramble for land
ln the vicinity of the Fiddick estate
whon lt was taken up. He had taken somo up himself. The idea wuk
that thore was coal on the .land. He
hnd taken his for that object, lie
could not say thut Fiddick migh-.
not havo taken his land up with tv
idea of settling upon it.
E. Priest, called by.Mr. McPh. -
lips, said he mads an examination
of the Fiddick form and formed thc
professional opinion that at lontt
60 per cent, of the land waa susceptible to cultivation.
J. Blunt estimated that th,io
were 30 acres of first claas land nn
the Fiddick place and that tho great
er portion of the other part was
good land of the second class, suitable for fruit-growing and fanning

Roosevelt perhaps was mistaken in

The paper quotes Baron Takahiru,
the Japanese minister to Italy, as
"The Japanese government loyally
maintains its promise to do everything possible to diminish emigration to America as we have no need
to send off our superfluous population even after tbe war. Japanese
emigration, much tlie same as in
alien immigration, has beau the result of special conditions in certain
regions, and it haa been augmented
by the desire to seek better opportunities and the desire for adventure, and; in addition, intending emi
grants have been ably aeasoned by
the agents of navigation companies.
Although I am lacking official newa,
I know that relations between Japan and the United States are excellent. The despatch ot th* American fleet to the Pacific cannot more
than merely Interest us, San Francisco being thousands ot miles from
The Tribuna also publishes an Interview with Lloyd C. Grlscomb, the
United States ambassador to Italy,
who attributes the augmentation of
the Japanese in California to Ja-
pan'a enormous developments.
He points out that tho population
of Japgn la increasing at the rati ot

BERLIN, Jan. 9,-The abort career of the woman auto cab drivers
in Berlin already has come to an
end. Today Frau I'appa, the only
woman who has a license to drive
an automobile, retired because she
did not possess sufficient endurance
to withstand the hours ln such service. They also failed to come up
to the police requirements. The cab
company shows no disposition to
engage any more women and the experiment can be considered aa having resulted in a failure.

American tailors will also be on

Whether women will be spry enough to try on dresses in mid-ocean
is yet to be proved, but Herr Balin
think* that the great size of thu
Europe, 20,000 tons, will preclude
the possibility ol rolling to any ex
tent and permit women to keep their
feet while being fitted.
There Is also to be a Jewelry store
on board in which passengers may

PORTLAND, Jan. 0.—Have you
bought in the National Air chip Com
pany, a company which says without equivocation that by April, 1908
it will establish a line of airships
between Portland and San Francisco
carrying 100 passengers and 80 tons
of mall? If you have not, Just wait
until Uncle Sam, through hia post
officials, gets through Investigating
whether or not the wholo scheme Is
a  fraud.
The National Airship Company,
through its local agent, Alexander
Ots, has boen flooding the newspapers and mails of late with advertising matter, that appears on the tace
to be fraudulent, according to tbe
postmaater general at Washington,
D.C. Evidently the government
postal authorities are not aa gullible aa the persons who have bought
stock in the airship concern, tor tho
federal authorities are going to make
tho company provo that It has solved the problem of aerial navigation.
If the promoters cannot prove that
they have solved what scientists and
Inventors the world over hove been
trying to solve tor centuries past, a
fraud order will be Issued against
them, and some one will be liable to
go to Jail.
It you want to travel from Portland to San Francisco ln twenty-
tour hours. Just buy stock in the Na
tlonal Airship Company, tor thla
concern, whose home office Is in San
Francisco, with a branch office In
the Mallory building, Portland, has
solved the problem of aerial navigation. All tbat is necessary for the
scheduled twenty-four hour trip is
tor the public to forget their skepticism and buy the stock. It sold
once for 25 cents a share; now if
you believe Alexander Ots, styled on
the company's advertising : letter
heads, as business manager, the
stock is worth St a share, but ll

DETROIT, Mich., Jan. 9.—A special to the Free Press from Lansing,
Mich., says:
"Whether from the flight of b»»li-
11 over tho city, "em deletes matter ln tl™ city water, or from some
other unknown cause, the city was
seized by a malady some time during Tuesday night and thousands of
persons stricken, accompanied by
acute intestinal trouble.
"From midnight until morning,
and all during the forenoon calls for
physicians were incessant. Whole
families wore stricken. Two boys
wore found in the street too ill to
make further progress. The disease
which most physicians attribute to
atmospherical conditions, yielded
readily to treatment. Fifteen city
teachers and hundreds of pupils are
absent from school. All the stores
were short of help.
"Secretary Shumey, ol the etate
board of health, suspecting that
something was wrong with tho city
water aupply, took step* to hav*
an analysis made which is not completed yet. It was learned later
that outside tho water works zone
the disease was quite as prevalent.
"Among several old and feeble or
very young persons, serious conditions have developed, but no fatalities have so far resulted in consequence of the strange epidemic."
