The difference in the ruto clearly
showing there is a difference In tho
value of tho two classes of luborers.
Everyone in tho building trndo
know that a qualified building laborer is worth two bits per day moro
than the ordinary laborer, hence the
difference in the rate.
Now, what is the difference? It Is
this: A building laborer has been
ut work on buildings long onough
to get acquainted with all tho terms
used by builders. Ho knows how to
make up different materials; how to
put up scaffolds; got stool beams iu

The promoters are anxious to get
Ladysmith people Interested In the
scheme. Ail orders down here could
be attended to at a day's .notice.
The work would go up on the noon
train and come down on the train
the next morning. In fact, if the
business went as well as it is expected a waggon would be put on
hero tho same as In Nunaimo.
As regards the financial side, it
has been estimated tbat the total
cost of putting up a buikllng and
installing machinery capable of
denting with $2,500 worth of business a month would be about $20,-
500. , On this figure a monthly business of $1,200 would yield 10} per
cent, profit on the total investment.
Towards this amount of business
Mr. Dickinson, who has represented
the Pioneer steam laundry in Nanaimo for years, and who is at ihe
head of tbe new company, has secured the Nanaimo trade from his
old company which in itself amounts
to between $700 and $900. There
should not therefore be much difficulty In securing from $1,200 to
$1,500 worth of business in the
Only    white    labor would be employed, and Mr. Dickinson has been
fortunate enough to secure the services of an    experienced and competent foreman.     A site has been ob-.
tained near Dobeeon's foundry,   and!
everything     Is going well.     Shares I
have been    -bought by almost every
business    man and hotel keeper    in
Nanaimo, and the provisional board
of directors includes two miners.
In order to give Ladysmith a financial Interest in the business, the
promoters are offering a limited
number of shares down here. The
shares are being offered at $50. The,
li-mit to one subscriber is 10 shares,
25 per cent to be paid on application, 25 per cent, on allotment, and
tho remainder in 60 days. Further
particulars may be had on application to It. R. Hindmarch who Is
acting temporarily as the agent of
the company here.

There will bo no spcciul feature In
the sports this year, iloth baseball and football have been cut
out, and other athletic events Introduced. The children's sports will be
the same as in previous yoars, and
the tug-of-war will again he a groat
drawing cord. There wilt bo afive-
a-side contest with which will go
tho championship of the province,
and a big relay race for teams of
three men. Tho distance to be run
will be 200 yards, and an effort will
be made to got somo outside entries. Possibly also thoro nifty be
push ball. If the ball used in Vancouver for the hospital sports can
bo hired' this event will be Btagod;
and can be depended on to furnish
enough of amusement and excite-
ment. Probably ulso there will be
some jumping and a quarter mile
In any case tho athletic programme will be exceptionally strong.
The regatta will follow along the
lines of previous years. Some of the
loss attractive events havo boen cut
out, and in their placo the committee is trying to urrange a water
polo competition. If clubs can be
induced to come In from Nanaimo
and Victoria, the contest should pro
vido tho feature of the regatta. It
is also probable that during the progress of tho regatta tho Ladysmith
male voice party .will be engaged to
render selections under the leadership of Mr. J. M. Morgan, of Victoria.
The Oun Club also has received a
handsome appropriation and will be
able to arrange a big day's sport
with their friends nnd rivals from
Altogether the appropriations will
in  to    over one  thousand dollars,
hod heen a l'ittle stir in the real
estate business. Quite a number of
houses had changed hands and lots
were being utilized for building purposes.
There is a bigger deal to record
this week. A Victoria gentleman,
casting round for a good investment, had his attention drawn to
Ladysmith. After reflecting upon.
the conditions and the work being
done by tho big railway company,
ho came to the conclusion that the
city offered opportunities for the Investment of capital as good as could
bo found anywhere else.
Accordingly he made Inquiries as
to what property was on the market, and ascertained that possibly
Mayor Nicholson might part with
tho Dank block. Thero was no time
lost in striking a bargain. Mayor
Nicholson got: his figure, and the
deal was put straight through.
It ..-, long since a deal of such
magnitude was put through in the
town. Mayor Nicholson is himself
now. looking for another site ont
whicn to hulid, and one transaction
of this kind begets another. It
spealis volumes for the financial outlook of thc town that it con attract
foreign capital to this extent.
ond the committee will see thnt the
city and citizens got tho very best
vnlue possible for tho money. "A
Great Day's Sport" is the working
motto of all concerned.

of more than ordinary interest, and
when he travels to England it is
looked upon as a littio more than
the ordinary vacation trip, for upon
him depends to a considerable
tent the impression Britishers will
receive of Canadian securities. That
this waa much in his mind when he
went to England was to be seenin
tlio many careful interviews he gave
while there and in what may besus-
picioned. the systematic carefully
planned campaign of advertising he
received from the English press.
The great need of Canada is capital to develop her resources.     What
should be the easiest source and the
best source for Canada to receive
this mosey trom ls England, In the
past the United States haa got much
of her sinews ot developments from
England. The resources ol that
country have been developed while
chose of Canada have been mostly
lying dormant. There are indications however that the tide haa
turned, and that in the future Canada will come in for more attention
than formerly from the mother Country.
It Is gratifying to see by the tenor
of Air. Shaughnessy's remarks that
he haa bad a most successful trip,
He ia optimistic with regard to Canada and everything Canadian. Ha
ia much   Impressed with the strong

Canadian Investments owned in

The position of the English investor
is that he wants to feel that he ls
reasonably certain to get a return,

Tbe Sultan hates England with a
permanent and Ineradicable hatred.
Thla feeling dominates and colors his
whole policy. It ia only Ior that
reason that he tolerates Germany,
which otherwise he dislikes. Enijiand
baa, always been the friend or the
Reform Party la Turkey, end tha
Sultan ls the great reactionary who
baa trodden the Reform party In the
dust. But worse than that, England, pretending to ..help Turkey,
took possession of Cyprus, nominally lo enable her to guarantee Turkey against Russia, and Asia Minor,
but really (aa it seem* to the
Turk*) by pure theft, because all
pretense of using Cyprus sa .a.basis
of operations against Russia in Asia
Minor was abandoned in 1860, and
yet England kept Cyprus.
Now to the Sultan the sting lies
In this, that Cyprus waa his private
appanage, and not part of the state
and tha whole revenue of Cyprus
went to the Sultan's privy purse.
But, worse still, at flrat the English
paid oyer the Cypriote revenue — a-
bout £95,000 a year—to Constantinople, but attar tbe Qhdstoalaa
government come Into power in 18H0
thla revenue .was 'diverted to pay in-
tercet on the. Turkish debt, emptying
the Sultan's private purse Into tha
top of tbs European bondholders.
The Sultan therefore, welcomed'the
German intervention, for the Germans encouraged him to govern aa
he pleased. They wen persuaded
him that railways ware necessary for
military; efllclenoy, end showed tbat
tbe Hedju railway must lie the foun
dation of hit Khalifats. Yet the

aging Mmo,
man who haa Invented a corset for
men and ls anxious to havo it adopted by tho United Statos Army.
According to a service paper, Mme.
Jacques believes that the men's corset "is especially valuable lor officers as they got on in years and
become obese, and urgos that it
would be distinctly helpful for dfll-
cors who are obliged to take practice rides, reducing tho discomfort of
such active exorcise and tending .to
prolong their period of active service."
The corsets should be tested by all
means. Is not . Surgeon Genoral
O'Reilly aware that mon wore corsets bofore women did? Does he not
know that corsets were purely a mas
culino blessing, and were stolon by
women along with many other valuable properties belonging to men?
Not only was the corset a man's attribute, but it wos especially the
prized equipment of men of war.
The warrior of tho real old fighting
days would as soon have gone Into
battle without his corselet of steel.
The protection nf the corset and the
.sense of security It conveyed to
drooping spirits turned tho tido of
battle more than onco and made cowards hold. The map of Europe
would not be what it ls today tflt
had not been for the quiet but effective support of the corset.
Now that ninety-mile rides are ,to
be undortakon by the swivel chair
cavalry of the Army, lt ls fitting
that corsets should be provided as a
flrst aid and comfort. If tho corset
was mado of rigid steel plates, attached to the saddle, the ofllcor Immured within thom would bo certain
to stick on and comploto the rido.
But evon a modified corsot would bo
of great assistance ln barreling and
hooping the agitated spirits of the
unpracticod horsemen.
Surgeon' General O'Reilly is an officer of sympathetic temperament and
of u»ido. Knowledge. Nelthor his
warm hoart nor his professional experience can contomplato without alarm the'terrible danger incident to
cross-country riding on tho part of
obese and elderly warriors. Any
thing that , will alleviate suffering
and reduce mortality shou.d bo adopted by the medical department on
the ground of, humanity. If pillows
are barred, arid If officers aro not
to be,permitted to take anaesthetics
thoy should havo tho right to wear
corsets as a matter at dolf-defonse.

Mr. Parrott is still giving a dollar prize to the bowlers who each
day make the highest scores on the
alloy. The competition goes merrily on, and is bringing out the fact
that quite a few of the bowlers
are very evenly matched. Mr. Parrott is also getting up a silver cup
competition for which a dollar entrance fee Is charged. There will
be ten gomes in all, and the highest aggregate score takes the cup.
The entrance money also pays for

besides his chance for the cup, gets
ton games for the dollar.

Double Train   Service on the E. is
Hallway Wilt Commence Next
Saturday— AA Important
The double train service over the
E. & N. railway will ^ inaugurated
next Saturday and win be continued
at least throughout the summer. It
was stated yesterday by J. Good-
fellow, superintendent of the road,
that the time table, with the alterations, had been issued and
available to the public on application.
It was explained that the Changs
would mean that the schedule now
in vogue twice a week,' namely, on
Wednesdays and Saturdays, would
apply at all times. In other words
there would be morning and afternoon trains leaving both Victoria
and Wellington. All officials were
ono ln tbe opinion that this arrange
ment would be satisfactory to tbe
large majority of those living in
Viotoria, Nanaimo, Wellington and
other points with which toe line
waa in communication.
Another change to what baa been
a rule of the summer In connection
[with the E. & N. heretofore is the
! time of the arrivals of tne trains ln
(theovenlng at Victoria. It has been
j the custom ln the past that tbey ar-
rive in Victoria un hour later during the warm weather thaa in tbe
winter; that ls, that Instead of
reaching the city at 7 o'clock, tbey
should arrive there at 8 o'clock. After considering the matter, tbs officials have come to the conclusion to
maintain tbs same time In this respect.
