(From Our Own Correspondent)
The Legislature today disposed of
the debate on the address   from the
Lieutenant Governor, and proceeded
to ordinary business.
The proceedings were opened by
Parker Williams, who spoke on the
motion of the lender of the Opposition, censuring the ministry for thoir
action ln connection with Ris Honor's non-assent to the Immigration
Bill of last session.
Mr. Williams attacked the Liberal
party, singling out Ralph Smith as
the most perfidious of them all. He
contended that Mr. Smith had   been
satisfied with . a restriction of   the
Japanose   Immigration Into   British
Columbia and had admonished    the
province to deal with conditions aa
they found them.

Continuing the debate on the address Itself, John Oliver was the
principal speaker. He reviewed th*
criticisms of the government which
have been mad* session after session and on the conclusion of hia
■peach, the motion to prevent an

The house then proceeded to general business and a number of bill*

that any recommendations mado   by

they might make would bo to have
the property qualification for Mayor
and Aldermen reduced, say to tho
figure obtaining in Nannimo.
Aid. Matheson thought they should
certainly send their representatives.
Tho question of reducing the proper1
ty qualification ought to bo taken up
at tho convention oven if it wns
thrown out.
On the motion of Aid. Campbell,
socondod hy Aid. Haworth, it was
agreed to send two delegates to tho
convention. Mayor Nicholson and
Aid, Matheson were appointed to attend thc convention ns the Council's
delegates.
The Gibbons' Cnso.
A communication was road from
MuBsre. McNeill & Bird, solicitors,
Vancouver, respecting Mr. Walter
Gibbons claim against the city. Thoy
stated thnt thoy had advised their
client to accept a moderate sum. hy
way of damages rather than take
thc oase into the law courts. Five
hundred dollars would, thoy thought,
be sufficient to meet the caso, .end
thoy had advised thoir client io accept that sum .|f It was offered to
him by tho Council.
The Mayor said that this vns eno
of the things thnt had boon l.tfttvet'
by tho last Council. Ho believed lho

taken tho ground that Mr. GihboiiB
had no claim against tho city, nn<\
he himself was satisfied that ho could
not collect damages in 0 law ■■'iiirt.
Ho and Aid. Haworth had soon Mr.
Gibbons on their way to the Council
meeting. Mr. Gibbons hnd told thom
that he would bo satisfied with SI 2.").
Mayor Nicholson had got this figure
from Mr. Gibbons by asking him to
stnte his expenses. Something like
$125 wns whnt Mr. Gibbons reckoned his expenses to be, and ho would
be satisfied with Mint nmount. Mayor Nicholson,was convinced that ho
had no legal claim iipon the city;
but they could donate that amount
to him.
•Aid. Haworth thought it would bo
better to mate Mr. Gibbons a donation of $125 than to pay that    am-
Comnvitteo;
Mayor Nicholson then appointed
the following committees:

Fire Wardens—Aid. Haworth, McKinnell nnd Roberts.

Aid. Matheson said they should provide some seats for the hall. People
attended meetings in the hall and

The football club held a most successful concert und dance in the Opera House on Saturday evening. A
strong programme had been arranged, and the hall was comfortably filled, whon Mr. W. 0, Simpson opened
the proceedings. Mr. J, Curtwright
was called on first, and his rendering
of "The Harp that Once Through
Tarn's Halls," on the English concertina, was deservedly encored. Mr,
•Allester followed witli tlounod's Ave
Maria, on the violin, which also was
enthusiastically received. Mr. Joseph
Sanderson noxt sang in his usual
pleasing manner and. Mr. Molyneaux,
in his best vein, gave a robust rendering of ••When Other Lips." Mi's.
K. White sung prettily, and a song
from Mr. Gunner .lacobson wus also
heartily greeted, Miss McMillan sang
"Caller IJerrin," in charming style,
and, being encored, responded w th
"Coming Thro' the Rye." Mr. J. Q.
Brown met with a merited encore
for thc first song, nnd replied with a
Scotch dialect to the tune of "John
Peel." Mr. H. Thornley pleased everybody with u recitation, and Alex.
Strung made his debut us a singer.
With '.'Drinking.';* Mr. T. Lewis
brought the programme \0 nn    end.
In winding up this part of the proceedings, Mr; Simpson touched upon
the question of Mainland players
competing in the island League. Tlie
game us ho understood it was intended to develop local talent. That
was why he was associated with it,
But Nanaimo aud Y.M.C.A. were
now playing men who had already
played in the first rounds of tho B.
C. ohampionship on the Mainland.
Ho believed that the players now appearing for the Y.M.C.A. had gone
to Victoria in the legitimate way of
business, to earn their bread and'bnt
ter. But he wus not se. sure uibout
tho men playing for Nanaimo. The
question would be taken up on February 8th, nnd they would learn who-
ther or not these men were eligible
in Island games, if they were, then
Ladysmith would have lo go after
men. They wero willing to play
home talent; but if their competitors
adopted other methods, they would
have to do all they could to secure
success.
The floor was then cleared for
dnnc ng, and for two hours, from ten
till close on midnight, thc dancers
footed it merrily. The entertainment
was a great success and the chili's
finances are much tho healthier for
what was takvn at thc game and
tho Opera House.
GREAT F-LEErT OF COLLIERS IN
'FRISCO.
Delays   occasioned   by   Overflow  of
Australian Coal' Cause Actions
For i'omurrago.
The block of the coal fleet at San
Francisco is growing and owners of
tlie steamers, which are unable to
lischnrge their cargoes brought from
Newcastle, are commencing suits for
demurrage. For being delayed thirteen days ln gotting a berth to discharge cargo, $2,52(i is being asked
in the courts at San Francisco on
behalf of the British steamer Bank-
lelyh, whose charter provided for
the discharge of COO tons a day
following her arrival. The German
ship R. C. Rlckmers Is also suing
for demurrage, suit being brought
against Evan C, Evans against
whom the action of the Banklclgh Is
also brought, for $1,096 for seven
days demurrage. At the present
time twenty-two vessels, with over
100,000 tons of coal, aro in San
Francisco Bay. Nine of them are
discharging 37,000 tons of coal nt
various bunkers and thirteen are lying out in the stream awaiting a
chance to land their cargoes. Sixty
five vessels with coal' ure either land
ing at Newcastle, Australia or are
on their way from that place with
coal in addition lo vessels almost
daily arriving from other places.
The purchasers of the Australian
coal are reported to have lost heavily on this business. When the
shortage occurred last winter a large
number of contracts wero mode for
Australian coal, too many for the
requirements of the coast and the
result has beon that tho market has
beon seriously glutted nnd tho Australian coal is being sold at San
Francisco for less than it cost to
lay tho enrgoos down at the Bay
city.
Another effect of the block hns
been to bring into sorvico some dis-
ongagod vessels which have beon lying Idle at Oakland. The Algoa,
which has been ls*ing idlo for a year
was brought into service to take
tho cargo brought from South America by the Kosmos liner Dendcrnh,
for which space is not available on
shore.
EMPLOYEES MUST NOT DRINK.
BALTIMORE, Md., Jan. 25, - It

hereafter employees of the Baltimore aud Ohio Railroad having anything to do with the direction of
running trains will not be permit,
ted to use intoxicants at any time,
either when on. or off duty. Any
persons using such beverages will
not be employed. This action hns
been taken by the officials of tho
railroad in nn effort to reduce tho
number of nccidonts.
SENSATION   IN   THE   GREAT
DRUCE CASE.
LONDON, Jan. 25.—The Druce case
Which has been so prolific of sensations today offered still another.
Tho solicitor for George Hollanby
Druce, who claimed to be the son
of tho Duke of Portland, in the lat-
ter's dual personality pf Thomas C.
Druce, and as such to be heir to the
title and estate, today mado public
the correspondence he has had with
the prosecution in which ho asks
that official to assist him in locating the offer by Miss Mary Patterson of Now York, but which has
fa!Ion into tho hands of a man purposing to be his representative In a
letter to George Hollanby Druce,
Miss Patterson said she had a nura-|
ber of letters by T. C. Druce to her
mother in which he referred to himself as the Duke of Portland.
Geo. M. Druce sent Miss Fatteraon
money to come to England, but, according to her later lettors, a man
representing himself as an agent of
George H. Druce's solicitor, called
on her and got tho letters.
The solicitor is anxious now to
flnd the letters as he says they are
necessary to the defence of MIbs Robinson,
Miss Mary Robinson is said to be
an American woman, the daughter of
a soutnern planter. She recently
testified during the progress of the
Druce case that she knew Druce as
the Duke of Portland; that Charles
Dickens told her that Druce was the
Duke of Portland, and that Druce
himself afterwards confirmed the
statement.
Miss Robinson was arrested Jan.
17 on a warrant charging her with
perjury.
PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE.
House Yesterday Entered Upon   the
Ordinary Business   of tho Session—Many Matters Introduced.
(From Our Own Correspondent)
VICTORIA, Jan. 28.-In the Legislature yesterday the ordinary business of the session was entered upon. The longest discussion on any
une subject was that on the second
reading of the bill to provide, for the
government exempting from taxation
for a period not exceeding ten years,
railways in tho province.
In introducing the second reading,
Hon. fi. G. Tat low explained that
the question had been brought to his
mind first ' J. Hill at St. Paul.
The latter had stated that while he
believed tho time was past for the
bonusing of railway lines in the province yet he thought something might
be dono in this way to permit of the
new lines getting in a position to
pay their way. Tho proposition had
been made for a portion of tho V.V.
& E., in view of the fact that early
construction would be gone on with.
The E. & N. extension had also been
brought before them and exemption
asked. It had been agreed by the
compdur to begin work at once in
view W provisions being made to
grant exemption.
It might, he suggested, be found
advisable to do something along this
line with tho G.T.P., provided immediate construction waa proceeded
with.
J. A. Macdonald took exception to
the bill. He could not see why the
companies should not come to the
Legislature if they had any propos
tion to make. He disapproved of
putting the government into the
hands of the Lieut. Governor in Government.
Premier McBride pointed out that
it was impossible to place before the
Legislature the proposals of the
companies.    These were not in shape.
The debate was adjourned on mo*
tlon of Parker Williams.
The decision of the speaker on the
resolution Impeaching the Lieutenant
Governor, introduced by Mr. Hawthornthwaite, was not given, in the
absence from tho Houso of the member for Nanaimo.
A bill introduced by Dr. Halt, passed its second reading. This seekB to
amend the Masters and Servants Act
so as to give employees the right to
select their own doctor.
A bill was presented from Thos.
Patterson and others, asking for a
bill to incorporate the Alberni Light
and Power Company.
The private bills committee reported recommending an extension of
time for the presentation of petitions
for private bills until Feb. 10th. The
committee also reported tho bill to
incorporate tho Ladysmith Lumber
Company, Ltd.
Hon. Dr. Young introduced tho bill
to incorporate tho university for thc
province in which nre set forth the
regulations governing the formation
of such a central body as shall have
charge of the higher education in tho
province.
Premier McBride introduced a bill
to provide for a ohange in the number of ministers. He proposes to divide the Lands and Works department, making a Chief Commissioner
of Lands, and a Minister of Public
Works.
The bill to provide for a civil service system was introdueied   by   the
Provincial Secretary.
...John Oliver asked in the House:

TWO GAMES
FOR SATURDAY
Two league game* will be played
here uu Saturday afternoon. Toe
lirst will be between the Nanaimo
aud home Junior elevens. The local
youngsters have played with hard
luciy so far this season, for in both
the matches they have played they
at least deserved a draw. It ia expected tbat on Saturday they will
turn the tables on their Nanaimo rivals. They are all in line shape,
and they should clap on pressure
from tho lirst toot of the whistle.
Tho seniors are down to meet the
J.B.A.A. boys. The latter won out
in the Victoria city league and never suffered delcat until they met
Xanaiino on Jan. 4. Two weeks
later the Nanaimo boys went down
to Victoria and administered a more
severe trouncing to the Capital favorites- on their own ground^ Of
course it Would be loolish to underrate the visitors on account of these
performances. It is the team which
is desperate after points that puts
up the surprises in football. The
boys are therefore making efforts to
keep in shape, and -with McKinley
back in his old place, the champions
sliould easily annex tho two points
at stake.
The kick-off will tako place at 2.46
p.m.
The teams will line up as follows:
Juniors.
Goal— Delcourt.
Dncks— Fagan and Beattie.
Halves— Kerr, Wright, and Wilkinson.
Forwnrds — T. Ashmoro, Lauder-
back, Beattie, Wilkinson and Lauder-
back.
Seniors.
Goal— McMillan.
Backs— O'Connell and Howlett.
Halves— Simpson, Morrison and
McKinley.
Forwards— Graincw, Strang, Adam,

THE MAN AND THE POET.
It Is    one of the most surprising
things in titerature that, while the
cult of Burns is universal, so  little
should be heard of his message     to
mankind.     There are Burns'   lovers,
and Burns' clubs in every corner    of
the globe,       They have their meetings and celebrations, and there     <s
no denying the enthusiasm display-id
at these latter functions.     But    tho
question may well be asked whether
all thiB furious and noisy demonstra
tion is advancing tho proper study of
Burna, or according him the homage
which is his duo.     There is, indeed,
some     danger of    these celebrations
fastoning attention upon that feature
of Burns' life and work which     1ms
always been grossly exaggerated.  Me
was     in truth  thc poet of good-fellows, and no singer could more happily enshrine in verse tho very spirit
of wanton    mirth and abandon gaiety.     It is true also that tho     post
did not always tread the path of sobriety.    But all the same this part
o! his work, as well as this side   of
his life, has been grossly and     maliciously exaggerated.     Burns     was
never a  toper.     He never had   thc
means to be one.     The whole question can be reckoned up in pense. The
chnrgea    of   drunkenness originated
with a careless biographer, who never thoroughly appreciated the great
genius    of tho poet, and who never
even took tho trouble to investigate
tho statements ho mado.     Burns was
was after all only a   peasant farmer
and it was not necessary to observe
the     usual proprieties of biography.
The     leading literary  lights of the
time made the fundamental mistake
of regarding thc favor as being   all
on their side.       Not one of    them
perceived    the     poet's transcendant
genius, or ever dreamt that glorious
immortality awaited Mm: while they
themselves remain mere names in a
literary    period,  living only becauso
of thoir connection with Burns.   The
poet still requires a   biographer,   a
wrltor from his own class., to   properly appraise    tho mon    and     his
work.     Meantime,  as -wo have said,
the   tendency    of these celebrations
and anniversaries Is to perpetuate a
phase of the poet's work, and a weak
ness in his character which, for tho
most part, always havo been,     and
still are, grossly exaggerated.
Mr. Hugh Fulton In his brief   ad
dress on Friday  night,  administered
a  strong corrective to this mistaken     view     of  the    poet.      Hut,     of
course, the worthy president did not
take near time enough for his    purpose.     About  Burns'  place in literature it would  be difficult indeed    to
say anything new.     It has been discussed by such wizards of the pen as
Cnrlylo     and    Kosebery.       Also     it
would  he impossible  to add  nn original word to all that has been said
of the poet's rhyme, bis mastery   of
his instrument,  his passion  for     nature, the     immortal  beauty of     his
songs.      Equally  as surprising as his
poetic powers is     his advanced philosophy.       In considering t his    part
of the poet's character full  consideration must he given to tbe period in
which he  lived.      Mis life lay In tlld
closing     years  of the l-3th century,
and     flic worker    today    can hardly
realize  the dilleiences   thnt  one hundred years have produced. The democratic ediicutoi-H,   the morning paper
and    the     'weekly magazine hnd not
then been  introduced.     News travelled     slowly, and tho workers in one
part of the country knew  little     n-
boilt  their  fellows  in  another   part.
Again lhe poet's reading was naturally very restricted.     Even 1. he hnd
leisure time, he had access to     very
few hooks, and it can only  lie
eluded  thnt ho formed  his own judgments.     And first and last ho represented his clas.s.     His voice was also raised against oppression and tho
bigotry of    the churches of the day
called forth some of the most stinging    epistles  ever  penned.      Liberty
for all and  independence for the individual   were  his  watchwords,    and
underlying it all was the basic    be-
fief in human brotherhood.  The mistake     should    nover    be made that
Burns did not realize his own great
genius.     He was always conscious of
it,     and  he    was a   better business
man than many of his admirers give
him     credit  for.       But he did not
write for money.      He considered   it
prostitution of art,     Nor   could j
ho seo how, if ail wore.brothers, one
could    profit at the other's expense.
Burns was a   failure at nothing, not
even at farming.     It was his principles, openly     avowed in his  poems,
that stood between him and worldly
success.     Of course thero were     indiscretions, too.     But he never shifted his    anchorage in man's inherent
equality,   his  right to independence,
and  his obligations in  fraternity.

OTTAWA,    Jan. 27.-At the opening of the House last Friday afternoon   Sir   Wilfrid Laurier read   tbe
correspondence which last spring had

rit Scott and l*-*aov- Dunamuir regarding the Natal Act passed by the British Columbia Leglalature.

and'to DunBmulr on April 28, related  to
California, iht """Be1     declaration of McBride
tanco today from the lake front    to
the city hall.
Tbe parade proceeded but a ahort
distance when Reltman, in the midst
of thousands who were Jammed in
the streets along the line of march,
blocking all traffic, was taken Into
custody by tho pollc*.
The arrest of their leader seemed
te give the marchers new Ufa rather
than discourage them, and while he
was being escorted to the city ball
his followers marched on.
When the crowds of unemployed
gathered on the lake front this morning they formed a long line and
waited for the "King of Hobo**" to
give the signal to start.
Several hundred were In Un* whan
Reltman, standing out In front of
the column, gave the word. Then the
police charged the mob, scattering lt
In all directions. Despite ths attack Reltman quickly and boldly
formed another line with 3,000 men
and marched triumphantly through
the crowded street* until he waa
nabbed by Chief Shlppy's men. The
general attack threatened by the
chief of police failed to materialize,
This was probably due to the fact
that the marchers were orderly,
HoltMan succeeded in leading the
Jobless man south ln State street,
thence in Jackson boulevard to the
federal building, before he waa stopped by a dozen detectives, who rush
ed upon him from the sidewalk,
Chlel of Police Shlppy personally
led a squad of policemen to the federal building, where Reitmnn and
hla tatterdemalions were gathered.
Reltman refused to obey an order to
stop marching. Several policemen
flew at him, struck him savagely ln
the lace and clubbed him over ths
head. While Reltman waa being
hammered, other policemen were
wielding their night sticks right
and left ln tbe crowds. Every street
leading to the scene was choked by
at least 25,000 people.      ,
Chief of Polio* Shlppy mad* preparations to call out the entire police force If *uch action waa necessary to prevent the demonstration.
Realizing that Ita plans would be
interfered with by tho police, the
leaders of the Socialist Party thi*
morning made an effort to call the
march off, but failed. The unemployed would not listen to" any
change in the original plans and declared that they would show their
strength ln spits of the police.
When ths idle nun took thla stand
Ben Reltman Issued a general order
for the parade*.
"We will inarch, and the police
will not terrorize u*," declared Reltman. "I will lead svsry man that

Dr. Blngeman said that ln the fall
of 1003 ha waa called to attend
Harry Thaw In Pittsburg and treated him for nervousness and melancholy, after Thaw's first trip abroad
with Evalyn Nesblt. Tha witness
saw Thaw several times ln the
Tomba after his arrest and defendant
alway* referred to the Madison Garden tragedy as an act of providence.
Thaw'* acts and appearance in the
prison Impressed the witness a* Irrational. It waa of Dr. Blngeman
that District Attorney Jerome laid
at the last trial whan Thaw's mental condition was under investigation:
"I would rather have the testimony
of an old family practitioner like
this man than all ths expert* you
could put on tbe stand.
The prosecutor's cross examination
today was very brief and courteous,
After Br. Blngeman came the first
of the foreign witnesses, Dr. S. R,
Wells, of London, who was called to
attend Thaw ln the British capital
In the early part of 1899.
Mr. Thaw was ln a very nervoua
condition," said Dr. Wells, "His
pulse was exceedingly rapid and he
complained of pain* ln his head, I
diagnosed his case as one of mental
disturbances."
On one of his visits hs said
found hia patient in a highly excitable state despite the fact that his
temperature was only 99 degrees. He
feared that Thaw might harm himself. Thaw did not respond to
treatment, even opiates falling, and
Dr. Wells said he decided to Bend
the young man to tho nursing association.
On another visit he said he found
Thaw dancing around the room Hks
a mad man. He reported hi* case
at the hospital as acute mania. Mr.
Thaw at the hospital had an snor-
inous room, continued Dr. Wells, but
he complained that ho did not have
room to breathe. He alio complain
ed of the terrific heat and demanded
that twenty ton* ot lc* be placed ln
the room. He did not like the nurse
assigned to him, and wanted ma to
employ a whole (tail of nurses so he
might flnd one he liked. Whan he

OHAMPIONS  SCORE AGAIN
•home
Tho Champions placed another
to thoir credit on Saturday when
ihey defeated the Y.M.C.A. team
Victoria. The Y.M.C.A. boys wore
fancied in Victoria for tlio championship, but their chances of gaining the
coveted honor are now mlghi-y slim.
Thoy began their League seliaon by
losing to ESqulmaK, tlie cloven which
tho home boiVfl defeated by 8 to 0,
and which the. Nanaimo club on Saturday turned down by 4 to 1. Tlio
J.B.A.A. also have lost two matehes
both to. Nanaimo, and it now. looks
ns though nil throe'clubs aro outclassed by lho tiWO local teams.
The Y.M.C.A, boys on Saturday,
mado a creditable showing in spite
of tho fact that thoy were short of
throe of thoir regular players. However, two of the substitutes ployed
up finely and the only weak place in
tho team was at right half. Tho
game, on tho \vhllo, was very evenly
contested and up to luilt timo honors wore even. The champions, perhaps hnd most of tlio play, and thero
should at least have boon cue goal
scored, llu-t tho visitors have a, couple of fine sprinters in thoir vanguard, and several times the
goal was in danger.
In tho second half tlio champions
had certainly tho best of matters,
■and on the play they deserved more
than their lead, Not that the via.
tors over slackened up or for a moment relaxed their efforts. Thero
was always the chance of a breakaway, and with such sjieody forwards
thero was always danger,
It was on ono of those occasions,
that a littio trouble arose. Mr. J. G.
Brown, on the request of tho homo
placers, was refereeing the game. Ho
had discharged his duties in an impartial manner and to tho satisfaction of all except thoso who can never see their side in tho wrong. Tho
second half had boon in progress over
half an hour -when. Sherritt raced
away with tho ball. Ho was clear
away and was just approaching the
penalty lino when A. Morrison back
char-red him. The charge was delivered, as near as the Standard man
could Judgo about 4 foot from tho
penalty line, and naturally the player camo down partly inside the lino
Mr. Brown at onco awarded a penalty kick. It was a grave mlstako,
and it was aggravated by tho fact
that Mr. Brown consulted neither
his Hnesmon, who wero both in
bettor position to judge than himself. In the end ho hail no cither
alternative but to stand by his decision. H should always be recognized thut the referee is the final arbiter in tho gamo, and many a referee, even if ho hat) lilundored as
badly as Mr. Brown, would havo ad-
nptoil drastic measures under tho pro
vocation ho received. He gave his
decision too hastily; hut no referee
of any bacbhono will buckle down to
an angry demonstration either from
players or spectators.
■For acme minutes there was pandemonium on tlie field and it really
looked, as if what had been as clean
, and interesting a game as anyone
ecu Id wish to seo, would be broken
up. However, tho field" wns cleared,
tho kick taken, a goul scored, and
tho Tame opened again. For somo
minutes the hoano players wero obviously rattled, hut gradually they,
sottlod down to their work again and
secured another, and a. whining goal.
It was about a quarter to three
when play was commenced. Tho
champions were first of all subjected to the camera oriiool by Mr.
Knight, and then to tho toot of Mr.
Brown's whistle, the teams lined up
as follows:
Ladysmith.
Goal—1>. Morrison.
Backs—O'Connell and Howlett,
Halves —. Simpson, Morrison
Hailstones.
Forwards —Grainger,  Strang,
am, Graham and Sanderson.
Y. M. C. A.
Goal-Whyte.
Backs—Ferrio and Struthors.
Halves—Hill, Johnson, Thaclwray.
Forwards—Morton. Young, Sheritt
W. Sheritt, J. Worwold.
Adam kicked oil and tho ball was
takon down on the left, Strang sending in an easy shot which Whyto
cleared. Tho visitors in turn raced
up field and Wonnald sent over.
Graham and Sanderson were- next
busy, but Struthors relieved, Victoria cam« up from the tho kick, Arthur Morrison heading out of the
press. Jimmy got tho ball and sent
out to Sanderson, tho latter
Ing over.
Then came a narrow escapo of tho
home goal. Tho visitors from a rush
up field sent In an easy shot. Don
fum-bled in clearing nnd was tackled
■before ho could got the ball away.
It was a near go. The Victorians
pressed fur somo minutes, the ball
being twice sent over by the right
wing and onco by the* left. Tlio homo
boys at length broke away, Sanderson receiving a fine pass from Graham. Whyto cloared an easy shot,
and then Jimmy banged over. A
foul against Hailstone lot Ihe Victorians In again ami Hewlett kicked
out to savo from a rush by the right
wing. From a free kick for hands
against Ferris, Hewlett placed finely
ln front of goal, but Whyto -was all
thero and play drifted again Into
mid field.
Alter some oven exchanges the
home boys broke away again. Grainger got down on the right and centered with his usual precision. Thore
was an oxcltlng rally tu front ofthe
goal, Jimmy, Joo and Sandy nil hav
ing a chip in; but Whyto nnd his
backs kopt their colors flying. Tho
ball was lost ovor the goal line, and

Again tho champions camo up, and
this timo Adam passed out to tho
right, but thero wus nobody thoro
to tako the pass. The Victorians
got down on the left, aided bv a foul
against Simpson, who wus unable to
sat sfy the referee with his throws-ln.
Struthors und O'Connell noxt took to
exchanging kicks, the visitors eventually getting down and forcing n corner. They continued to press, a foul
for handling bringing relief to th"
homo defence. J-oo Sanderson
pulled up for off-Hide, but came again
and got tangled up with Ferris. Gra,
ham get tlie ball and put in a fine
shot which Whyto cleverly saved.
There followed a grout scrimmage in
front of goal, during which tho excitement ran at fever height. Thrco
corners In succession, all of which
wore finely placed by Grainger, came
to tho home players, and it looked
odds on a goal. Once the ball
struck the Inside of the post, but
still Whyte managed to clear. Finally the ball was sent over, but
there came another rally, without,
however, any score coming.
After a run down by Victoria, Adam got going in the centre. Ho got
round the bacljs with tho assistance
of Grainger, but In the end shot
weakly. Whyto throw away, and tho
Victorians ran straight dawn tho
field. 'Hewlett tackled, but banged
the ball up again the inside right.
Tlie ball bounced back and Martin
raced away with it. He centred well
and Bun was unable to clear. Arthur
got in just in the nick of time, and
kicked out.
Tho locals again came away, Adam going up on the right. Struthers
fell in tackling and'Adam raced away
He was unable to get through himself; hut Graham got the hall, and
scored with a lino shot.
The visitors wero in no way disheartened, and after play hod beer
going a minute or two, Sheritt, the
contre, got -through. He had the
heels of both O'Connell und Hewlett,
and could pretty near have dribbled
through. However, ho was obviously afraid of being overtaken, with
the result that ho shot too early and
missed. Then the locals went up
again, twice, losing tho ball ovor.
The Victorians next caine down,
through a misunderstanding between
Sanderson and Hewlett, Sheritt got
through. Arthur Morrison brought
him down close to the penalty line,
and thore followed the Incident of
tho ijenalty goal already referred to.
Thoro was now only twenty minutes to go, and for a minute or two
tho visitors had things pretty much
their own way, on ono occasion, the
outside loft missing an easy chance i
of scoring. Gradually, however, tho
home boys settled down and made
desperate olTorts to draw ahead.
Thoro elforts were scon rewarded.
Adam started un his own and got
right up.      He overran the ball
Ing, and by   steady work   held   off
the pressure for almost half an hour.

Tho Nanaimos are a splondld team
and on a strange ground put up a

A few minutes after the interval,
the Esquimalt goal had a close call
as tho home vanguard forced and
was dangerous, Farmer putting his
head under the ball' for a fine attempt at goal. Tho play was now
almost always In tho visitors' territory with their defense all working
hard keeping their opponents out.
Nanaimo forwards passed back and
forth, sfg-eagged this way and that
shot over the bar half a dozen

GOOD POK T^MPBBANOE.
Tho great gome between the two
rival boarding houses, tho Temperance and Now Western, was played
on Sunday afternoon. A respectable
crowd turned out to witness the
match,, and everybody was satisfied
that such on exhibition of football
has never been seen on the new
grounds. The Temperance men won
out by four clear goals, 'hut they
hardly deserved such a lead. It wob
their defence that saved thom. Fulton showed them how the Rangers
touch a man to chop, block and tackle. His fearless tackling cost him
two heavy falls, but he always got
the hall oven if he didn't always
know whero. Bloomer of Derby was
also a noticeable filgure, being as
sHppory os an eel, especially whon
his cap dropped off. Also the Carlisle United man was all thero when
the ball struck him, and the goal
keeping on both sides was a feature
of the pluy. The Belfast man was
as bulky as any man that has ever
been on tho ground, but he is rather
short in his powers of locomotion.
Thero were only two men hurt, which
was perhaps the most 'surprising
thing of all, considering how fearlessly evory man played, and how little
somo of thom know of the game. The
Temperance men were naturally elated at their victory, and half a doz-
of thom wore observed to proceed direct to Rumming's or thereabouts to celebrate. i

ends it all! The referee, no moro
than the Standard man saw no

Saluted by cheers as he rowa down
the course;
At last all is ready. "They're offl"
"Hanlan leads!"
They cheer him, but no such incentive he needs.
They bend to their oars as thoy dip
in the wave,
And    pull with    a   will and     with
hearts that are bravo;
No child play is this,, and our Island
boy sees,
If he now wins at all, it will be    a
tight squeeze.
He husbands his strengith as ho kcops
even keel,
Determined at once his Opponent to

The half milo is past and his calm
thirty-one.
Still gave him a lead, but as Courtney drew on.
He slackened two strokes, Courtney
spurted awhile
Putting In thirty-six in a  masterly
style;
But true to his colors and true    to
his past,
Our hero kept, rowing a stroke that
would last.
Tho water wns lumpy, onward  thoy

Yankee ahead!"

Again Hanlan slackonod to tost
Courtney's blado,
Who showed all his strength by the
efforts he made;
Again rise tho choers with donfoning
burst-;
As turning tho buoy our brave Hanlan is first.

length behind
The picture of pluck and truo science
combined;
Now Hanlan is cheered as his boat
takes the lead,
"Courtnoy gains! "Thoy aro equal!"
by Jovo, what a spoedl
"He leads!" his frionds shout till
they're black in the face.
His spurt, thirty-six, Is a half-flying
