Victoria's Gift of 4
Points to Nanaimo
Tlie fine (sic) football sports lit
Victoria have again showed tbeir
sportsmanlike qualities by making a
handsome gilt to Nanaimo United of
four points in the Island League. It
seems strange that the Victoria team
should refuse a home game, as Nanaimo United nre booked to play there
to-day, and the matter ot rotusal to
. fill dates will be thoroughly thrashed out by the Vancouver Island Foot'
ball Association meeting at Victoria
to-night, to which Manager Eno of
the Ladysmith Football Club will be
a delegate. In the Pacific Coast series Victoria was a drawback, either
defaulting games or wanting new
dates, and now that this has cropped up it shows thc Victoria sports
in their true light. Esquimau, with
no chance ot winning the league, filled their dates, and as sports are
held in high esteem by the footballers on this end of the island. It
was hardly probable that Nanaimo
could have put a winning team in
the field to-day, as Victoria United
are composed of mostly Victoaii,
West playerB—who are playing great
ba'.l, and tho Nanaimo team is In
an unsettled state. One thing is
sure-elther Victoria United will havo
to drop ouc of the Island League
next year or Ladysmith will remain
on the Bhell. It is certainly a turndown to the local club—going to a
big expense travelling to Victoria,
filling all their dates—and let the
bunch of quitters at Victoria forfeit
two ot their bCBt games at the last
moment. Victoria were always
knackers, but the locnl supporters
claim this to be the limit. Since Nanaimo have been presented with
th**e points the standing of the
League is as follows:

As a.result of the accident to Mr.

and the other on a place run by a
man named Klein. There were only
four men at Klein's place playing
black-jack. They were easily captured. Smith's place was crowded with

Telephones on
the Railways
" There seems to be every probability of the telephone coming In and
replacing the telegraph ln nearly all
the roads as an Instrument for. dls-
dispatchlng trains," said W. W. Ash-
ald, superintendent of telegraphs and
telephones af tbe Grand Trunk railway to the Toronto News in discussing the probable adoption ot the
telephone by his company.
"lt is only a little over two years
since the first sending of train orders was done by telephone, and already there are five thousand three
hundred and sixty miles in use on
the continent and twelve thousand
six hundred miles have been authorized, The Chicago, Burlington &
Quincy railway have Ey all means
the largest system of telephone dispatching in the -world," said Mr.
Ashald, "and they are extending the
system over their entire line because
they find tbat It takes only about
CO per cent of the time which is
needed to dispatch trains by telegraph.
"The telephone system is meeting
with approval everywhere and we see
the American Railway Association
and the Interstate Commerce Commission coming forward and support/
ing its Introduction."
"But what will become ol tbe telegraph operators?" Mr. Ashald was
"They will all be ratained by any
railway that installs the telephone,
tor the railway will have to have
men who understand the moving of
trains, and tbey will have to have
men to send those messages which
do not concern the train movements.
"The telephone," said Mr. Ashald,
"has been tried on the Canadian Pacific from Montreal to Newport, and
has given good results, and at present wc have tenders In tor the installation of telephone systems over
a considerable portion of our own
system, and it is now only a question ot financing the proposition betore these lines will be put in operation.
"One ot the greatest advantages of
this system is that if a railway
wants it can equip every train
with an Instrument and then in tho
event of ltd becoming necessary to
communicate with a station tu Inform them of a wreck or blockade,
the conductor or engineer can simply
hook on their instrument to a wire
and open communications. This will
result ln the bringing ot help in it
much shorter period of time.
"Of course, the cost of this new
system will bo tremendous as compared with tbe cost of thc telegraph
system, for where one iron wire at a
cost ot perhaps forty or fifty dollars
per mile is now required, two copper wires at n combined cost ot
about two hundred dollars per mile,
will.have to be put up. In addition,
the number of instruments required
per mile, will be large, and they will
add to the cost ot installation. Although this may not look big tq the
outsider, when you think of the size
ot the system you will see what an
amount will be required to properly
finance this scheme. It will be an

Ladtsmith, B. C, April 23,1909.
Dear Jerry:—According to the pro-
mis I made ye when I left owld
Ballyragget 1 drop ye a few lines to
let ye know that I am well, at laste I
feel that way now. Well, Jerry, I
landed In Ladysmith some weeks
ago, an sure a toine place It is entirely. But let me warn ye, lt ye
come this way, for the love ye bear
me, don't come over on the tbrans-
fcr; if ye do, ye'll rue lt. When I
got to Vancouver they towld mc the
thransfcr would lave In a few hours,
and be the long gun of Athlone If
tbat same owld boat left till thc
next night and thin I thought it
would nlvir lund mc sate at me des-
But I got here, and the first man
I met -was the mair of tbe town.
Hcspokc to me in Irish, and I, not
to be uncivil, answered bim in the
same langwldge. Be mc sowl, scz I
to myself, here is a countryman of
me own, but'I found out that tbe
mair was Scotch by ancesthry and
British Columbyan by choice. However, the man meant well, and 1
said no more.
They've awl kinds of langwldge*
and people here, and to tell ye thc
truth I don't know where they nil
came from. They're Ilalylans, Finns,
Belgians and naygroes.
And let me spake a word about
the lather, a* our old schoolmaster
used to say. Two of thlm kept places wl^re thc byes played cards, and
Cassidy, aft owld Cork man, got wind
of it. He towld another Cork man
named O'Connell, the same man wr
used to sec at thc fairs.
"Be me word," said O'Connell,
this is a dhreadful shame, and IM'll
tell Callendar, the policeman, to see
if it can't be stopped."
When Callendar beard the word he
told the mair to supply him with
men, and he'd make it a dacent
"AU right," sez the mair, "that's
what yere there tor." Then the
mair gathered up the bravest men in
the town and ntflier administering
the oath av allayglancc he handed
thim over to Callender.
Av coorse, Callander addressed his
men. He sez: "Now me brave hay-
roes, as Nelson said on Che eve of.
Traflalgir, 'Knglan' expects every
man to do his duty.' Now I say to
ye Ladysmith expect* every man to
do hi* beat. You will not be long!
away from yure home*, and when ye
return, ye will bo rewarded with the
nowlidge that ye did yure duty."
Then he armed the men and the
band struck up "The Girl I Lett Behind Me." They proceeded in two division* to attack the houses. The
right division was under Cassidy,
and Callendar lead the roln ot the
left. Well, to make a long story
short, the inlmytwa* surprized and
were court-marshaled the next day
they were all taken prlalners. They
and the leaders were exiled to Victoria, and the rest were let oft with
a toine.
I've met a good many here from
tbe owld sod. Pat Malone, a* dacent
a man as ye'd foind any place, Is
now living' here, anu whin he was
towld that a couhthryman ol his was
looking for a job, he hunted me up,
and extended the right hand ot felo-
He sez: "Dan, what can ye do?"
"Well," set I, "I think I'd make a
good policeman."
"Oh," sc3 te, "there are two Ir
ishman on the foorce already, and
maybe it wouldn't look well to put
on another so soon.".
"All right," sez I, "anything ye
"Weil,'' sez he, "come down to the
moine, and I'll see what can be done
ior ye."
Pat and me had a toine toime av it
that night.   He asked me if I could
sing a song, and I struck up:
"Owld   Paddy   McCarty was hand-
Bome and fat,
And the hair of his head hung down
by his bat,
He had bat one son, and he christened him Pat,
So   hurrah   for     owld   Paddy McCarty."
TEls put all the boys In good humor and faith we hail a great night
av It.
I'm towld that they are going to
have grate improvements this year.
The mair sez he will give me a con-
thraet on the soors, and if that
doesn't suit me, he'll give me a job
on the light plant. I don't know
what he manes, but I think maybe it
will be a ligbt job.
Now I will not write any more
at present, as I have to go on a
shift, but in mc next I will tell yo
more about the town. So convey
me regards to me owld friends in
Ballyragget, and write me as soon
as yc get this letter, II not sooner.
Your old lriend,
Lord Kitchener
Makes a Speech
Prominent among tlie speeches in
Budget debate in the Council of tho
Governor General of India, nt Calcutta, was the exhaustive and important deliverance made by Lord
Kitchener on the Indian Army. Tbe
speech made nppnrcnt thc fact thnt
the great soldier whose term as commander-in-chief of the Indian army
has expired, nnd who, lt is reported,
will return borne by way of Van-
oouver, knows the business end ot
soldiering ns well as thc practical
work. Said be, in the course ot his
"This is the only military budget
framed since I have arrived in India
under conditions ot financial stringency. My sole' aim throughout my
tenure ot-offlcc has been to place the
administration, ol the army on a
sound" business footing. Tbe modern
army is no ossttlj- t*y for display or
instrument ot aggression, it is simply Insurance against national disafl-
ter. The first business conditions necessary to justify military expenditure Is thc maintaining of the army
In a thoroughly efficient state. Atter
study I concluded that the army
consisted of splendid niAieii.il from
which the best economical value was
uot being obtained. I felt that tho
first essential step was lo Improve
the organization, training and distribution of tbe army. We are now-
able to mobilize nine, infantry divisions and eight cavalry brigades with
a rapidity hitherto impossible. By
Introducing a test of training wo
have rectified many weak points in
the regiments. The divisional system has been introduced and tbe
Quetta Staff College is proving of
the greatest value. The re-arming of
the artillery with quick-firers and
of troops with new rifles is now
practically complete. We are also
able to procure in India guns, rifle*
and ammunition on a scale to meet
all needs ln tbe field."
Lord Kitchener vigorously denied
the allegation repeatedly made ot
late that his policy meant the massing ot troops on the frontier. The
army at present, he said, received
higher pay and cost less than before.
This he ascribed in part to the creation of a Finance Department to]
deal with i military questions. He
wa* convinced, he said, that real
economy in military expenditure
must be the work ot the officers
themselves. This year the army estimates' bad been newly framed on
the "division" basis, each general bo-
Ing provided with a -finance adviser.
Finally, be alluded to tbe old dual
system.of advice being given to the
Viceroy by two separate member* ot.
the Council, and strongly urged Wii-'
turning the present system, tfberrtf
the Commander-in-chief Vould ensure
an efficient army. THE LADYSMITH CHRONICLE

The Greatest Siege
in History
The tendency ofton to consider the
latest disaster, storm, etc., as thc
greatost In, history is revealed in the
giving to the siege of Port Arthur
by thc Japanese in the Manchurlan
war thc first place among seiges for
the desperation of the besiegers and
defenders, the extent 01 mining and
counter-mining, and in thc bloodiness
of the assaults. But a study of tho
sclgc of Gandln, the seaport capital
of Candin, or Crete, one of the largest islands In the Mediterranean, at
the entrance of the archipelago,'
makes the Port Arthur investment
appear insignificant in some details.'
On August 30, 1C49, the Turks sat
down before Candia and never again
quitted their camp till the city fell I
more than twenty years later. In the
conquest of the island more thun
200,000 Turks perished. The garrison of Venetians made ninety-six
sorties, and sustained nfty-sii n?-
s-ii:its, and filty-flvt subteva:*(. 11 u.
tacks. They sprang 1,172 mines
while 3,516 mines were sprung by thc
Turks. The Venetians threw more
than 48,000 shells and more than
100,800 grenades, besides 5,800 made
ot glass.    Lieutenant-General F. H.

Every mail   from   England brings
further light on the great   question
done, the unworthy panic info
which this country seemed inclinedta
fall. He should rather have said two
panics, because there was the territorial army panic recently, when they
heard nothing about the fleet. The
two seemed to him rather inconsistent panics.
The whole question was, Were wc

truth to say that the God ol heaven
withholds his sanction from the use
of arms. From that night in which,
in the valley of Bctliulia, he nerved
tlie arm of the Jewish girl to smite
the drunken tyrant in his tent down
to the hour in which he blessed that
insurgent chivalry of thc Belgian
priests, his almighty hand hath ever
been stretched forth from his throne
of light, to consecrate the flag ot
freedom—to bless the patriot sword.
Be it for the dclcncc, or be it for the
assertion ot a nation's liberty, I loos)
upon the sword as a sacred weapon.
And if, my lord, it has sometimes
reddened the shroud of the oppressor
—like the anointed rod of the high
priest, it has often blossoixied into
flowers to deck the free man'r, brow.
Abhor the sword? Stigmatize the
sword? No, my lord, for in the passes of the Tyrol it cut to pieces the
banner of the Bavarian, and through
those cragged passes cut a path to
fame for the peasant insurrectionist
of Innsbruck. Abhor tne sword? Stigmatize the sword?
No, my lord, for at its blow, and
in the quivering of its crimson light,
a giant nation sprang up from the
waters of tho Atlantic, and by its
redeeming magic the fettered colony
became a daring, free republic. Abhor
the sword? Stigmatize the sword? No
my lord, for It swept tne Dutch marauders out ot the fine old towns of
Belgium—swept them back to their
phlegmatic swamps and knocked their
flag and sceptre, their laws and bayonets into the sluggish waters of.thsj
