Previous to the   autumn of   1803

Mossis. Jas. Adam and R. It. Hindmarch for Ladysmith.
Mr. Whyto in submitting his report, commented on the fact that
not a single gamo in the wholo series of the League engagements had
been protosted. In presenting his financial statement he said .that the
present year has been the most successful in the history of the Association. The figures will speak for
themselves.   They are as follows:

Graham, for Nanaimo    United,   and;known* and Indeed,  what is  known
to-day as tho Rugby gamo was also.
At thut time tho public schools wero
the exponents of football, and each
great school, such ns Harrow, Eton,
Rugby, Winchester and Westminster,
had its own laws and would play
none othor. In consoquonco tlio only
matches thoy could have were secured by selecting teams from amongst
thomsolves, or when a toam of "former pupils," or, as tliey wero then
knqwn, "Old Boys," visited tho
school for the purpose
Under such a system, progress or
dovolopmetit of any kind was impossible. In tho fall of 1803 a meeting of tho representatives of the
various schools and clubs was hold
in London for tho purpose of forming an Association und framing a
code of rules acceptable to all. After several meetings a code was
framed which was an honest attempt to incorporate tho laws of all
interested, but chiefly those of tho
Rugby, and what was afterwords
known as tho Dribbling;, game.
Shortly afterwards , a meeting of
tho representatives of«tho principal
schools was hold ut Cambridge with
similar object, to arrange rules
which should unite all undor one
common bend. Tho rt'les .then pro-
pared and agreed to, constituted the
first known code of what*-Is now
Rugby football. At .subsequent
meetings of the association, differences of opinion arose regarding the
now rules, and an endeavor was

one views It not too seriously. The
othor day Mr. Whltnoy announced
that the general election in Ontario
would be hold ln June or September, He was perfectly truthtul, hut
none of the Conservative henchmen
seemed to take the statement aeri-
oualy. They are nil preparing for
an election in June.
On Wednesday of laat week, the
Hon. Mr. Leblnnc, leader of the Quo-
bee opposition, asked Premier Oouin
when the general cloction in the
province would occur,
ed thnt it might be held inJuno or
October, or titer* might be another
wsslon. He Intimated that it
would be impolite for him to announce the dato without consulting
the .lieutenant-governor.
The Ontario government might do-
lay the general election until January,. 1010. Yet both are preparing
for an early appeal to the peoplo,
The reasons for an early appeal to
the people In Ontnrlo ore more apparent than ln Quebec. In the Int-

President Drown then read his address which may almost bo rogarded
valedictory so far as his official connection with the Association
is concorned. Pressure of work absolutely prohibits him from continuing in office and although urged to
stay with tho Association ho was
reluctantly compelled to decline. His
address, which is reported in full in
another column, referred in glowing
terms to the season just ended. The
revival of Nanaimo and tho groat
game the United had put up woro
fittingly alluded to, and attention
drawn to the sportsmanlike manner
in which the matches had been played, not a single protost having bejn
registered. Ho wont on to deal with
tho age limit in tho Intermediates,
favoring its abolition and suggesting
tho formation of a socond division.
He did not see any nocossity for the
B.C.F.A., and emphasized the necessity of tho various Associations
burying thoir constitutions into a
conformity the ono with tho othor.
All thrco reports were received and
Mr. Adam brought up tho quostion
of tho division of tho gate taken at
tho last gamo at Oak Bay botweon
Nanaimo and Lndysmith. Ho did
not seo that tho Association could
claim tho whole of it, and suggested
thnt, aftor all expenses had been
paid, tho balance be divided into
three equal shares. Aftor considerable discussion this was agreed to.
Tho noxt business was'the appointment of tho funds for tho purchase of
medals for winning teams in tho
threo series. It wns finally agreed
that Nanaimo United be presented
with 11 gold medals of the value of
S10 oach. Fifty-fivo dollars was in
like manner allotted to tho victorious Intermediate eloven, while the
North Ward Juniors are to receive
each a five dollar gold medal. The
models voted to the United eloven
aro the handsomest that have fever
boon bestowed by tho Association,
and will fittingly commemorato tho
team's sturdy and strenuous struggle
for supremacy.
It was also agreed to present two
gold lockets to President Brown and
Secretarv Whyte as a alight acknowledgment of the groat services they
have rendered the Association and
Island football. Mr. Brown makes
an able President and his opinion
outside tho Association always carried great weight and influence. It
is greatly to be regretted that ho
has found lt necessary to sever hia
official connection with tho Association but it mny bo taken for granted that he will always be ready to
give advice when culled upon and to
support Island football. As for Ed,
Whyte, ho haa put in a hard season's work. His heart is in tho
game and his association, and no
bettor man for tho position could be
found on the Island.
The officers   for   the ensuing year
are as follows :
Hon. President.—T. Oraham.
Vice President.—J. O. Brown.
Socond Vice-President.—A. Brydon.
President.—C. O. Duncans.
Vice-Prosidont.—Jas. Adam.
Sec-Treasurer.—E. M. Whyte.
The mooting concluded with

Strenuous objections   were mode   to vour against   tho   Rugby game

could 1)0 soon youngsters who found
amusement in chasing*,the sphere.
In England this enthusiasm was
also marked and extraordinary- progress wus made, until nt lust it was
acknowledged that tho Association
gome had come to stay, and judging from tlie immense crowds who
watched tho games, it wus ovidont
that tho enthusiasm was not confined to the players.
Much of this success was duo to
tho inauguration of the challenge
cup contests, and although lately
exception has been taken to'these
contests on the ground that they
givo rise to excessive rivalry and
that the stimulus givon Is not conducive to tho host interests of the
game, whatever truth thoro may he
in theso arguments, tlie fact remains that wherever cup competitions havo .been established new
clubs havo arisen, and as a natural
consequence players have multiplied,
ond there is no doubt that the extraordinary development of tho Association gamo during the last 25
years is attributable in a largo measure to the influence of challenge

NEW YORK, April 29,-Followlng
tho suicide last night of Chas. Coster, a prominent broker and so-,
ciety man, the Stock Exchange firm
of Coster, Knapp and Co., of whioh
. . .Mr. Coster wa* a member, announc-
".jf^J^Jed its suspension today on the floor
of the Now York Stock Exchange.
The firm had dono an extensive business.
Announcement at the time of tho
suspension said that tho action was
directly due to the death of Mr. Coster. This formal statement was issued by a momber of tho firm.
Owing to tho death of Mr. Coster,
and the consequent condition of tho
firm's affairs, it has been doornod^ advisable to make a general assignment for the benefit of all creditors.
This stop was takon at the suggestion of most of the. creditors, and
Mr. Werner, of tho law firm of Simpson, Werner & Gardner. The assignee has already started in to stralgh
ten out accounts, so as to make a
correct statement to all parties interested -as early as possible.
No intimation of the firm's assets
or liabilities was given and it was
not thought that anything like definite figures could bo given ponding
the completion of tho assignee's investigation.
Coster was well known in amateur
athletic circle* and was a member
of many clubs and social organizations. He was rated as a millionaire and a successful business man.
He had prepared for his voluntary
death with a coolness and thoroughness which proved beyond any doubt
that the act was premeditated. He
selected a time when Mrs. Coster
was at a reception, and, preparing
himself for bed, telephoned for his
family physician. He told the physician that Mrs, Coster had a severe
cold nnd is ed liim to como to thc
hots, t ,i n ■•. Soon after the doc-.
tor it ed t stor retired to his
roo:;i nd s ,.t a bullet through his
head. i'he shot rang through the
house    just as Mrs. Coster entered,

returning from tho reception, and

At tho door of the room she met the

night thoy were at a loss to account for his act. Today, however,

OTTAWA, April 2>.—In the Houae

late Charles Drinkwater, on behalf
of tho C.P.R., applied to the govern

the Philippines two hundred Japanese immigrants for work ln the O.F.
R. Irrigation district in Alberta. The
Japanese government had declined to
issue the necessary passports without the consent of the Canadian authorities.
Replying two days later the Minister of the Interior said if the Intend
ing J a pa nose Immigrants were under
contract for labor the government
could not consent, but that there
was room ln Canada for a limited
number of Japanese domestic servants and farm laborers. No other
application of this sort had been received.
that up to date there have been no
tenders accepted for clearing at Quel
icham, for which work several bids
havo boen tendered, all of which
wero considered too high.
A contract for clearing 125 acres
at Ladysmith had, however, been let
to G. S. Lawrence, of Ladysmith,
who, undor the terms of tlie contract, ls to commence work at once
and to finish the undertaking^within

The problem ot the future is th*
government ol America by Americans. In tho working out of this
problem I believe we muat obliterate
the imaginary line between the United States ol America and the Canadian State* of America. I can see
no reason for ths division and I believe the flag bearing the atari and

Bering sea, to tbe gulf of Mexico.
The Intellectual- energy of the coun

no other. I spoke in Sarnla, Ont.,
