Of course that  may have been the case, but no amount of t-oa.1 excuses alters the fact  that the Ladysmith intermediates are  now champions of the Island League,  and they stand a very good chance  of "Coming out ahead in their g-ames  with the Mainland team. Ladysmith  will play the Vancouver temn here '  on Good Friday afternoon,1 and will  play a return game in the -Terminal  City one  week later.  The boys, say that the game in  Victoria on Saturday, was marred  considerably by wind, and also think,  they . could have been ased much  nicer by the referee, and still only  received what was coming to them.  llowc.er, they are champions now,-  and il is up to them to drill for  the Britii-h' Columbia championship,  aiid they promise that if they do  not got it, it will not be for the  lack  of practice.   o   TALES OF CANNIBALISM  St. Petersburg-, March 31���������Horns  accounts arc reaching St. Petersburg of cannibalism and starvation among the tribes inhabiting tho  frozen arc*cic plain of the Chuck-  chis peninsula, at the extreme nor  thern   part   of  Asia.

Some time ago  the    announcement ' JMi e Donovan,  a hospital  attendant
"was   made   thai  the  Chemainus   mill
had dispensed with all itsChinesc help
and had  replaced the Orientals  with
white   laborers.     With   the   olvjcct of
r     verifying    this leport the  mill     was
rung  up by telephone yesterday    ami
the management    interrogated    with
regard  to the matter.     Mr.    Pulmcr
was in  Seattle, but his chief assistant gladly  furnished   the  infoimalion
sought, says   the Victoria Times.
r       The mill has not,    he s.iys,     done
*'  away  with  all  its  Chinese  help,   hut
, the change is being lruuli* systcmatic-
-ally,  and it  was  hoped  in  time     to
, introduce a  more desirable cla*-s than
thai no'w employed.      The    company
.wanted    good,    slcady' men,  married
preferably,    to whom'it  could    give
��� ]iertnn,neut    employment.       Coinfort-
- able hdiiies had been, built for many
��� so' far, and others would be erected
.   providing the  company  was   satisfied
"that the applicants for the same
'were' -the kind oi men wanted. The
.'���company has made ' inquiry in Win-
.' nipeg and, in other eastern cities for
T,.help., In British Columbia, men of
., the,right stamp were scarce. II could
"engage   many  who could come today
��� and. be sonic where toinoirow, 1ml
' this .class  it   did not  care for.    Thc
-.-company   is  now  employing   150 Chi- |
nese in the mill and yard, and if all
'these' were white men of an indus-
trious, and reliable description it is
-.not difficult to imagine thc enorm-
mous benefits accruino- to, Chemainus.
. -In /the change it proposes, to make,
;,the Chemaints company will sec an
-example to nearly eery mill in thc
��� 'Province.' From the time thc lum-
-,-ber-. industry started in British Col-
^iimbia" Chinese have conslitwtcd al-
'"���niojsl 'exclusively (except in thc log-
vging camps) the labor employed and
���v.,V, ,'it has i.een claimed by.many that.
f-.' "'their Oriental customs in living nnd
'���""j '"jion-progresshencss has had a ^cry
���'iv'v,dctriineiilal effect ,on the growth of
-'���*'���>''"'.''the country. The Chinese help could
}���$,"?*,'always hc depended upon in any
iS--- i- number and at-all times it was av-
laiJablc,   so'' that in  this and in many
- other ways there were advantages to
'-'the.'mill  men  in engaging, them.  But
it   is claimed   now  that Chinese la/h-
-ore-rs are' becoming scaicc as a result of no newcomers,immigrating to
the country since the Dominion Clov-

The  meeting, .was held to complete arrangements to carry out the policy  .ommitted to the board 'during the  nationnl convention of miners which  closed Friday'. " This was made ���������������(  fective by authorizing thc District  and  sub   districts     officers       to  sign  I  contracts  wherever the operators sig  uify a   willingness      to pay the 15)03  wage  scale,     which is an increase of  5.55 per'cent    over present <   wages.
