The ilrst of July eolobration for
1908 must be voted a groat success. The committee were favored
with glorious weather und an admirable day's sport was admirably
carried through. From 0 in tho
morning until 8 o'clock at night,
when the final in the tug of war
tourney was being decided, there was
some event or othor In progress, and
overything passed oil without a.
hitch,
Tho crowd, it may be said,
was not as large us hud
been counted on. The town itsoii
was en fete, with all tho banner..
Hying on the outer walls, and the.,
peopie turned out en musse. iiut tho
visitors wero not nearly so muuer-
ous as they have beon in.previous
years, and this fact wus very
ticeable on tho Spurts Uround. Still
evon in this respect the day
fairly successful und the committee
should be able to meot their liabili
ties, ^^^^^^^^^
The sports themselves wero to soma
extent spoiled by the thinness of tho
entries. It was only after considerable delay tlmt four teams-were
got together for tho tug-of-war, and
for the pushball, which tho committee had put on at considerable expense, only two sides could be got
together to take the field. It is certainly surprising thut with such valuable prizes put up for competition,
so few athletes should show themselves.
The part playod in tho days events by the home boys wns also a
little disappointing. F. Ingham secured a first In the 100 yards dash
but after that the locals could nevor
land another Ilrst. What would
have happened in the 200 yards ruco
had not Adam- failed to catch his
partner's handkerchief it is difficult
to say, but it is hardly likely that
the Indians would have got first
placo. McEwan and Hewitt made
the same mistake, und probably had
not these blunders occurred tho final
would have beon fought out lic-woen
Howlett and McEwan.
Still there Is no disposition to begrudge tho visitors their successes.
All the sports In town wero moro
than ploased when thoy loarnod that
P. Hewitt's team was coming. Paddy is a real sport, and is almost as
popular here as in Nunaiino. ' The

LADYSMITH WINS
Tho victory which the local nine
secured on Sunday afternoon over
thoir old rivals from Nnnalmo, mny
glvo the game a spurt hero of which
it stands greatly In need. In tho
two previous matches this season,
the bnsebnll boys hnvo met with withering defeat nnd In their former
meetings with Nnnnimo annihilation
was usually tholr portion. Their victory on Sundny nfternoon was on
tlmt account nit tho moro welcome,
und should put heart into tho players. Thore Is no renson why there
should not be a strong bnsebnll club
hore. There nro lots of native mn-
terlnl, and this could lie strengthened by outside assistance. Tbe players need to practice. Arthur Morrl-'
son Is un active, energetic mnnagor,
nnd if the boys will turn out they
would, bofore the senson ends, mnke
a respectable showing which, In turn
would command respectable gates.
The boys are admonished to got out
nnd practice for tho return mntch
with Nanaimo.
Tbe score on Sunday wns 0—8. nnd
tho gome wns good to watch. Nnnnimo had a now mnn In Wngner wbo

The Council then went into committee on the new licensing by-law
which was read a lirst and second
time ut the last meeting of the
Council.
Clause one was adopted as read.
Clause 2 provided that an application for a transfer of license should
be ucconjpunied by a fee of $25 for
retail and §15 for a wholesale Ii'
cense.
Mayor Nicholson expressed the opinion that this clause more properly
belonged to a revenue by-luw, and
he thought they hud better incorporate it in their revenue by-laws in the
form of an amendment.
Aid, McKinnell said lie wus of thc
same opinion. lie could not find
any nuthority for including what
wns a revenue provision in a licensing by-law. Ho would like very woll
to see tho clause pass if they could
let it go. He was afraid, however,
it had no place in the by-law thoy
were considering,
Aid. M'n theso ii said that there was
similar by-low oporating in Vancouver. Ho did not see that it was
out of plnco. It was all right in
tho proposed by-law and it would
be porfuctly safe to pass it right
thero.
Aftor some further consideration,
this clause was struck out.
The next clause which provided
that tho windows of all hnr-rootus
should bo darkened to a height of 5
foot from the floor, was opposed by
Aid. Brown. Ho thought it was a
shame to impose such n condition on
a man who was paying for a license.
Hc argued that a license was issued
in rospect of tho whole premises and
that all the windows in tho house
would have to bo darkened.
Mayor Nicholson dessenleil from
this opinion and declared that most
of the windows in tho barrooms worn
already darkened. The provision
would cause ii great inconvenience to
any one.
Aid. Matheson wns of the same op-
nion. and tho clatl-0 was adopted,
ns was also tho next specifying tlie
time by which tho necessary altera-
tions won- to bo effected.
Clause ■!, providing that n person
under tho influence of drink wns not
to be served and that no femnle customer was to. be allowed in tho bar-
rtiom was ulso adopted without amendment.
Clause fl was adopted without discussion and clause six. specifying the
hours oh which licensed promisos
should bo closed, was ronchod.
Aid. Mntheson thought thnt tho
proposal to close on Mondoy, Tuesday*. Wednosdny, Thursday nnd Friday nights nt 12 o'clock mldnlghfe
wnsja1 little drnslic und he moved
thut'.'tJds- section'of the clause be
struck out.
Mayor Nicholson went a step fur-1
Ther'. He thought'they should not
bo'too hard on those mon. They
paid for their" itnnhos even if tho
latter wore lower thnn In nny other
city round about. Ho did not soo
that thoy wero gulled upon to do
further than the provincial law, and
If a saloon keeper wished to open
hls plnco at 1 o'clock on a Mon dny
morning, ho would ba in favor of
allowing, him to do so.
t Tho suggestion of his worship was

and read a third time at the City

The Uounuil woro well advised

by-law on    Monduy o\ ening.      Ihoi-o
is  no  question    that   tho proposals
contained  in     the  by-law  as  introduced    were     altogether too drastic
The by-law inarms tho first ellort  of1
.the Council to assume control uf the
liyuor     trade    in thc city.     At the
very     lirst    stop they have secured
Sunday closing,      lhe citizens   have
not been   consul tod    in tho matter.
lNo one can tell whether it is by the
wish oa' the majority of the peuple of
the town thut   the hotels are   lo be
closed    at 11    o'clock 0n Saturday
nights aud all day on Sunday.     Of
course the council have the provincial law behind them, and it is hardly likely that there will be any   organized or actau hostility   to   this
enactment.     It might, however, have
been entirely different hud the Council endorsed the original proposal of
the by-law to close every night    at
12 o'clock.        Wherefore as we have
•aid,  the  Council wero  well  advised
in dropping this part of the by-law
by    which   they   secured legislation
iwhich will effectually close up every
bar-room in tho town on a   Sunday.

VACCINATION.
The government, it ls suid, will at
tho reuaseinhling of parliament, introduce a measure for compulsory
vaccination of all school children.
This is ra_her.^ an interesting announcement. In the old country
there took place a slow revolt a-
galnat this very principle which ended. In the Vaccination Act being o-
memled so as to exempt the conscientious objector. The revolt, of
course, sprang chiefly from a difference of opinion ns to the olllclency of
vaccination in tho prevention of
small pox. A ; is always the case,
scientists were lined up on either
side, and the statisticians demon,
nt rated one again thut figures can
be made to prove anything. How
pver, the result of tho mavomeut was
the admission of the right of the
conscientious objectors to exemption.
Now, lt seems, we are to go bock
to the position from which the home
land has just' broken away, after
y*ars uf controversy and agitation.
Ot course the government is only discharging It* flrit duty In taking ev
cry means in its power to safeguard
th* health of the people. Ilut it Ib
doubtful whether o little more attention to drainage and sewerage,
and general sanitation would not do
more even as a preventive against
■mall pox than all the vaccination
in tho world. Thero Is, It seems,

city two weeks hence and prepara-
slone for the event are about completed. The party managers expect
tbe convention to be a record-break

they declare, wa* never ao keen oa
at the. present time, and a* a conee-
quesce there will ba a full attendance of delegain and visitor* at th*
convention from every state and territory.
Tbe field of candidates for th. presidential nomination is broadening
daily and the proapecta are for a
lively contest when the convention
mnt*. Among thon mentioned a*
possible nominees for president are
Alfred Manlerre, an attorney of New
York; Dr. W. B. Pelmore, editor of
th* St. Louis Chrlatlon Advocate,
and Fred F, Wheeler, a wealthy
real estate dealer of Los Angeles. Dr
J. B. Cranfield, a Baptist minister
of, Dnllna, Tex., who wa* a candidate for vice-president In 1892, ia
alao mentioned oa a posalble choice
for th* hud of th* ticket.
Some ol the leader* believe that it
would be wise to take a candidate
from either of the older parties, selecting a man who has don* something for the nntl-saloonists, even
though he may not have been officially Identified with tb* Prohibition
party. In thl* clas* 1* Seaborn W.
Wright, a Democrat, who I* regarded as the lather of the prohibition
law now in fore* ln Georgia.
For permanent chairman of th*
convention W. T. Ward-well, formerly
connected with th* Standard Oil
Company, and W. W. Smith, a New
Yorker, who haa become wealthy and
more or loss famou* a* a manufacturer of cough drop*, are th* two

I resources of Canada, as woll ns  her
ers and selfish politician*.
The Democrats are practically a
unit In demanding resubmission, but
tbe Rebublicans aro divided, and upon this question, moro than on that
of tax reform or any other issue, depends the party's choice of a cantor Idjdoto.
Thore are throo aspirants in tho
Held to head tho Republican ticket.
They are William T. Haines, of Wa-
tervillo; B. M. Fernold of West Poland; and I*. E. Boothby, of Portland. Mr. Haines and Mr. Fernald

throughout the stato are believed to
favor the candidacy of Mr. Haines.

THE BRITISH   HOME   NAVY MO-
BOLHSED.
LONDON, June 30.—Ths mobilisation of all the British warships ia
boras waters available for service
was completed today for ths annual
naval munoeuvers, and Admiral Lord
Ueresford tads himself in aupreme
commond of a total of .three hundred and ons ships with on aggregate complement of 08,000 olUcers
and men. With the exception ol the
coast guards all these men are
the active list of the navy.
Local pride In the record size of
this fleet is pronounced, and tbe
newspapers, while they proclaim that
the array ol such a force ln the
North Sea ta ln no manner connected with Germany, do not fail Incidentally to compare this, the greatest fleet ever assembled in Uu history of the world, with the fleet of
63 vessels with wbich Germany
cently carried out bar North Sea
manoeuvres.
Officially, all thought ol reproducing the sea operation* that might
be txpscted in the (vent of difficulties with Germany is repudiated, but
from ths general character of the instructions issued it appears that
Admiral Berssford with the Channel
fleet and the (rat cruiser squadron
based at Aalbeck bay ai tha extreme north of Denmark, ia to enact
the part of the enemy and assay
descent on the east coast ol Great
Britain which admiral' Brtdgeman,
commander in chiet of the Home
fleet with its base In the Firth of
