trust. They wanted men of conviction in public positions. Having explained the iniquities of the traffic,
he claimed there was no evil in the
world but which was aggravated ltiUO

Minto Gup Trustee Lays
Down Law to Athletics
P. D. Ross Points Out That Challenges of St. Kitts Cannot
Always Be Taken  Seriously ��� Classifies Their
Arguments as "Absurd."
Ottawa, Sept. 2.���P. D. Ross. Minto
Cup trustee, has sent the following
letter to J. M. Reams, president of
the Canadian Lacrosse, association, in
reply to one sent by Mr, Reams, who
urged that the challenge of the Athletics of St. Catherines for the cup
be  accepted:
Dear Sir���In regard to your letter
of the 18th re the Minto Cup, I may-
say that the delay of the trustees to
take action on the challenge of the
St. Catherines Athletics does not
arise so much from a question as to
the right of the Athletics to challenge as from the doubt in the St.
Catharines case as to what consideration should be extended to a club
which, after having _.ent is a challenge and had it accepted, has dropped the matter to suit its own convenience, as the Athletics did this
spring.
in my opinion il would be Impossible to give satisfaction to anybody
about such trophies is the Miftto and
Stanley Cups unless the principle is
observed that a club must not challenge unless it intends to, make good.
The exigencies of th- lacrosse and
hockey seasons are such tnat tne ac-
ceptance of any challenge for these
���. a usually debars proper handling
iny later challenge until the first
one Is disposed of. It would therefore be absurd and Impossible to permit  clu is to get into the notion that
SEASON WILL OPEN WIIH
any   team   ran with a   cup   challenge
[take   reserve   seats   free   which   keep
everybody else out of the house, and
I then before the performance cooly va-
' cate the seats, too late,  perhaps, for
i anybody  else to use them.      A  club
which  challenges  without  _eing  fully
determined  and able to go  ahead is
I doing an injustice, not so much to the
; trustees as to the other clubs in Can-
I ada.    In the Minto Cup case this year
New Westminster did get a chance to
play   the   Shamrocks    after     the   St.
! Catharines default, but it was hip and
tuck for them, for the trustees delay-
| ed  for   a   considerable   time    the  acceptance   of   the     New   "Westminster
challenge   while  waiting   for  the   St.
Catharines   action   to   deelop.       v
To the contention that after a challenge is sent in the challengers may
not be able to get fair conditions fr m
tha cup-holders, and therefore ougnt
to be entitled to back out. the answer
:- of course that the trustees must tie
relied upon to get fair conditions. As
a matter of fact, in the Shamroi -
case the St. Catharines Athletics 'li'l
not make any representation to the
trustees that thej were offered unsatisfactory arrangements. They did
at first complain reasonably abou' a
delay of the Shamrocks In opening
negotiations, but the trustees secured
them sufficiently early sati faction.
I   am   yours   truly.
P.   D.   ROSS.

DO   NOT  FORGET.
Do not forget that every effort is
being made to distribute the greatest
benefit to all Canadians by the Government's assistance to quickly move

"Thirty feet to the qu\1."
THE  RAG'S COMMENT.
The Columbian has at last awoken
from Its dream of "Laurier and Loot"
and enters upon a subject upon which
It |is equally non-conversant. With
its usual indecency it exposes its ire
because the Liberal forces are reunited, and resorts as usual to au un-
irutht'ul statement of the attitude of
the Liberal press and calls the Liberals who for sheer charity are do-
inn business with the patent medicine
sheet "blatant bluffers." This scurrilous reference, to some of the best
business men In the oonstltutoncy, is
upon the tongue as a consequence of
;i calling down some of the leader?
of the Conservative party in this city-
got the- other day in a meeting from
the mouth of one of themselves. There
has never been an admission that the
convention of last fall was not conducted upon honest and square lines,
but for the purpose of the sure de-
teal of the nominee of a section of
the Conservative party chosen at a
convention, hurriedly called and pushed through to escape lhe consequences
of the arrival of a prominent member of that party. It hurts the Tory-
few who put through the jo',, to know
that its haste and refusal to adjourn
Is known to have severed from the
Conservative party some of its most
clear headed and businesslike supporters. One statement the Columbian makes is true, and because true
it must have been an error, that is
"that the outcome of the new convention is of little importance to the
public." True, because whether one
or two Liberals were on the ballot pa
per tho Conservative nominee is sure
to be defeated, and the electors
throughout the constituency are sure
of this. The anesthetic which will be
re-administered to tho Conservative
candidate in the Westminster district
at the next general election will put
him to sleep on the. straw-bed of opposition for another term and during
the life of the next parliament lie
will have undisturbed dreams of scandals, blue ruin and loot, and m Ma
semi-conscious moments will grab for
his supposed enemy, Sir Wilfrid Laurier. only to And that this old time
nurse is still feeding him sumptuously and views with pity his misguided
ravings. In the meantime we hope
his sheet will be continuously supplied with patent medicine dope, and
that his abuse of his best patrons will
be forgiven, for to tell the truth this
mountebank of journalism falling by
the way would rob the people of this
city of a heap of fun.
call tbe plain people. In the district*
of Arthabasca, Drummond, and Me-
gautic it is these people who are his
firm and intimate friends, and they
would smile at the thought that there
was nothing behind the relationship
other than the mere concern of a politician  to  retain  political  support."
"Thirty feet to tne gulf."
CONTRAST.
The Toronto News (Conservative)
has this to say of the greatest Canadian statesman that has ever had a
voice in or guided the counsels of the
Dominion:
"Sir Wilfrid Laurier has an Infinite
patience under attack and a thorough
contempt for the mere tattle of | . -
tlsan controversy. He seldom corrects
the smaller misrepresentations of his
objects and motives, and much that ia
said by a hostile press he wholly sets
aside us of no practical account in the
serious discussion of public questions.
.Moderation is the keynote of all his
career and the secret of all his
achievements. He learned at the
threshold of his public life that the
statesman must often resist popular
clamor and stand impervious to momentary gusts of popular passion,
and that all enduring achievements
must be based in the reason rather'
than in the emotions of ihe people.
He has been distrustful always of extreme opinions and of intemperate advocacy. He has been dou'otfu! always
of the wisdom of violent changes and
Impatient of mere demagoguery. it
Is noi the mere art of the politician
which invites to his side when he is
out. in the country districts the grey-
haired, toil-worn worker in fleid or
shop, but an innate goodness of hear*.
an unaffected love of his kind, and a
profound appreciation of the worldly
wisdom and hard common sense an',

it is said.
Doing a two-step
around the

be looked upon
as  being  "fun."

It takes a lot of talking to convince some people of the positive fact that I can save you real dollars on your tire or any other
kind of insurance, but once you are convinced you will appreciate
the great saving I can make you. '
The reason I can save you money Is because I write for strong
independent Canadian companies that are not controlled by the
trust and I can give you low rates on good risks.
Just call and get my rates and you will be convinced as others

COSTS MONEY
Too much money is spent on useless advertising
by city merchants every month. Many columns
might be written on the folly of usin^ certain
advertising mediums, but the moral in the end
would be that there is only one really sure remunerative advertising medium.
'The Daily Paper
Reaches customers past, present and prospective, in all parts of the city and district.
These people read the advertisements, study
the bargains offered, and realize the need of
goods the merchant has for sale.

From   Toronto :
The Retail Merchants' Association of Chatham is a level-headed
organization. At a recent meeting newspaper advertising was
discussed, and the general opinion
of the members was that news-
piper advertising was the best, and
program and other advertising of
that class was almost useless.

dinner    tendered    to    Rear-Admiral
Sperry and the senior officers oi the
American battleship Hi et at tiie ltoyal
Yacht Club last night, Alfred Deakin,
the Prime Minister aald:
"Thy appearance of the American
' fleet indicates that It Is on no holiday
cruise, Its visit marks fOr us no casual adventure for the earnestness aitor
mature consideration, and thc concession made by tho American government in sending the fleet here is perhaps the most generous made in recent times by one nation to another.
"The American battleship fleet
shows the last, word In the art of naval
construction, and the lesson to Australians is that America was una'.le
to take a first place In the world until the country bad a tlrst-class navy,
because n was, until then, only aide
to protest verbally against outside Injustice and injury; so Australia cannot be contenl to ultimately accept
defense at any other hands than 1'.-
invii and Bhould begin provision for
Its own navy  in a moderate way."

street. She advances tiptoe to tbe
.-I,-" of the pavement, poises like a
bird ready for a flight, deftly raises
her dress more than enough to show
her embroidered skirt, the dainty hose
aud elegant bottines. and without more
delay she trips across, toe aud heel
barely touching and the mud refusing
to cling to the fairy feet tbat hardly
leave an impression on it. Landed on
the other side, she gives her flue feathers a little shake Into place and passes
ou with shoes that look as if just put
on at that moment.
Watch an Englishwoman immediate
ly afterward. She reaches the curb
���tone, comes to a dead standstill and
stolidly contemplates the muddy road
Finally she -elects a route. Then
very cautiously, sin* lifts her dress
making sure that the tops of het
shoes are under cover; then, slowlj
advancing, she puts her n^ht foot out
Plump It goes, the water oozing ovei
It, nnd then splash, splash, splash, until the other side is reached, when.
with soiled skirts and soaked shoes
She proceeds on her wet and mudd*
way.
Nothing could be more characteristic
of their respective nationalities, ami
nothing .could be more amusing than
their mutual contempt for each oth
er's ways. ��� Translated From tin
