The Ladysmitli captain protested one decision of lhe referee, Sergeant Richardson. This was in the first half. Morrison scored with a clean shot, but  for some reason the referee disallowed'the goal, givin-g offside. This was ,Constaul* secured and passed to Ha/.  undoubtedly a mistake  on his  part,  |u,wood, >vho took ** weil down field,  secured and  put in a hard one, which . ?line at the suiface is wrecked.

On resuming play Ladysmith tried  hard to even matters, but Byrne, awl  Williams were now as steady as, a  rock and     relieved   time and again.  for it was obvious to many of '   the  spectators  that  the goal was a\lfair  though the explosion i.s! attributed -to  gas, suspicion exists that there may  have been another cause.

St. Louis, Mo.,   April 3.���������A     message received here from the  Ziegler  Coal Company at Ziegler, Ills., confirms the report of a disastrous mine  explosion   there  and  says:   "Cannot  on which-the spectators, mostly sol-   ihe other-   boUl teams teg'���������'.''*:   '���������  diers,  began a perfect uproar   '   de-    show the eftects of ,,anl Pla>r-     The  manding"    that    the     referee decide ,Gallisou ������acks were too strong ���������.nd  succeeded in keeping the Ladysmith  men out. A few minutes after' this  time was called without further score  For the losers Gilmour and Snowden ai half back played in good form  and .were always in the-way. Ninimo  against     Ladysmith.   This the man -  did, but     at the same time he     is  stated  to have  told the Ladysmith  captain,  who immediately entered   a  protest,  that when the same,     was  brought - before the meeting to be decided, he would support it, as in his  private     opinion  he considered   the  goal a fair one.

In the forwards  Graham  and  Adam!Two have been  rescued  alive     thus  ���������far."  disheartened the Ladysmith players, |but  in spite\>f this they defended their  goal fairly well, as is shown by the  fact that only one point was scored  by the soldiers after the above incident. The visitors were, of course,  also bothered by >the softness of the  grounds, being accustomed to playing on the hard Hunker grounds here  they are in the habit of wearing  shoes with bars on the soles, and  these are useless on a soft grass  pitch, and they were unable to do as  effective work as would have been  the case had their shoes been studded, as were those ���������worn by the soldiers.  While, of course, it is useless to  make excuses for the home players  losing the game, it is only fair to  them to mention the above facts.  That they were not treated fairly by  the Victoria referee is to many of  .the spectators an indisputable fact.  It certainly seems very strange that  the referee should ask the opinion of  the two linesmen, and that after one  watched to bc dangerous.    For     the  winners, Prpvins. and Ford were; the  pick of the team.   Worrall played a  good game in goal,  but took   some  big     chances   on  kicking  instead  of  playing with his hands. Williams and  Byrne were slightly off color in the  first half, but played strong in    thc  second.   Paley worked hard, but was  closely watched  hy  Adam.  The for-'  wards     all   worked  hard,   but they  seemed  inclined   to shoot  from    the  distance in preference  to going     in  close.     By  winning   this  game     the  Garrison will now play off with the  Vancouver Celtics for  the championship of British Columbia.  After the conclusion of the game  there was a meeting of the Vancouver Island Football Association in.  Barracks, at which Victoria West  Egeria, Victoria United , Garrison  and Ladysmith. associations were  represented. In all, ten delegates  were present, including tl������e president;  J. G. Brown, vice-president,   J. Ad-  AI-JNUAL  CONVENTION.  Toronto, April 2.���������The "executive o,  the  Canadian  Manufacturers'   Association  met  today and decided     to  hold  their annual convention  in Que-  bfec September 18, J9 and 20.  .    .    .       .     . am, secretary-treasurer, W. Lorrimer  had given las in favor of Ladysmith,   also ref3re4,s   Richardson and French,  and the other declined' to remark on  the matter at all, he should deliberately gh o his decision in favor of  the Garrison.  It will be noted that all except two  present were Victoria men.  The minutes of the last meeting of  .the Association held jn Ladysmith on  Following is a report of the.game'   the 25th inst.,     werc read, discussed  commencing   the  game  Lady- [&nd approved.   Under the head of reports of referees     Sergeant French's  On  smith kicked  off,  playing  down  hill  and immediately,? took the ball to the  Garrison end, where Byrne was called on to save.  On the kick put Lady- !  smith again secured,  but  the     ball  went out.  report of the game played at Ladysmith between Ladysmith and the  Garrison was read. In his report  the referee recommended that all of  FroHLthe throw-in a 'the members of the Ladysmith team  foul   was   given   against   Ladysmith,  Ford took, Ninimo saving at the expense of a corner. But the Garrison  failed to secure. Adams secured from  Paley and tried lo score, but Worrall saved, but the ball went out and  a foul was  sou  and     Williams    ikjpked out twice  .tjuipk succession to save.   Then VVor-  gjmpSon   the  rail had to save and play was trans- !sm*-jfc|, team  ferred  to the other end of the field.  who played in the game on the 25th  should l:e penalized, excepting Gilmour, Graham, and Blundcll, but overlooked thc rough play of the Garrisons. He also asked the Association  to deal    strongly     with Nimmo, the  A MIGHTY WHALE.  An Olympia despatch says:  A huge  whale,     -believed  to be one vhat recently   attacked   the ..battleship   Nebraska in Seattle harbor "stood up"  the steamer     Multnomah yesterday  morning     just off Old Tacomi, and  and-for a few minutes Capt. George  Hill     and  the passengers  who were  aware of the presence of the leviathan,  thought that the story of .Ionah  and the whale" was about as  true   i  narrative as'ever "was writ.'  The whale suddenly made his    appearance near the'"boat and just    in  front of it. After training his eye on  the steamer half a minute he made a  few passes and then started head on  for the craft.   Capt. Hill rang down  to  the engine room  "full speed     astern" and was wondering how quickly the crew would be able to get out  the life boats, when just as the. huge  creature reached the bow of the boat-  he lowered his course-so that he pas-  sed.,cleai;.-ui!derv the hull, scraping his  fluke along the bottom as he passed.  It is said  that a whale cannot     see  directly in front, owing to the location  of its eyes,  and it is  supposed  that he miscalculated the depth     oi  the      Sound   steamer,   after   having  practiced on the deep draft Nebraska.     The whale was one of the biggest ever  seen  in   the Sound,   and it  is conceded that had he struck     the  boat  at  the rate he was  travelling  the     Multnomah would either be in  the bone yard or on the drydock today. .  personnel of the new Isthmian Canal  Commission'is as follows: Theodore  V. Piatt, chairman; Charles E. Ma-  goon, governor of the canal zonis;  John F. Wallace, chief engineer;  Rear "Admiral M. T. Endicott, U.S.  N.; Brigadier Gen. Peter C. Haines,  U.S.A.' (retired); Col. Oswald M.  iCrncsi, corps engineer U.S. 'army;  Bcnjainin M.  Hairod.  These names are given out at the  war department today and in connection with the -announcement, Secretary Taft gave out for publication  the announcement of the salaries of  the new 'commissioners and his' own  letter...to .the President and one from  (lie latter explaining the plan of reorganization of the '."commission.  That whatever plan is likely to bc  adopted, lhe work of excavation  and  construction, which would have to-bo  done under     any-plan, may proceed  without waste of energy for a period  qnite long enough  to enable-you    to  decide which is the best plan.-   I suggest,  therefore,   that the  first  work-  to be done is the-appointment of an  advisory  board  of engineers,, saying  seven in number, to %������ selected from  the engineers  having especiall  knowledge of hydraulic engineering     and  canal construction, to whom shall bo  submitted     all  possible information  with  respecl to  the projected canal,  both that, obtained by the French engineers before our purchase of      the  plant and data obtained.by  the chief  engineer of the present canal     commission, together with all the     projects . suggested  for the solution     of  the     problem,      which the advisory  board  would  be  invited  to Washington for the purpose of agreeing oa. its.  recomnrendations  and if such  recommendations be made before the regular meeting of congress in December,  that the recommendations bc submitted to the canal commission, as then  constituted for its approval or modification     and with the recommendations of the canal commission hj_ submitted  to  the President for his action      and  transmission to congress.  ,   As already suggested,  work  of securing the best plan and its approval  by     corigrcss need .not delay in any  way     the preliminary work adopted  to any possible plan,  or the highly  critical work of sanitation;  the   extreme importance of which has   been  already emphasized  in your previous  instructions.  "It is conceded," the secretary  adds, "that the present commission  has no.l. developed itself into an executive body as to revive hope that ii  may be used successfully, as an instrumentality for carrying on the  immense  legislative  burden  involved  (Continued on Page Four.)  f OF \mi\  F  s  iXmST ^JnSt. thC Gfr";  Ladysmith "full-back, claiming that he   f  w    .'!'"

This was after a most crowd to give his decision :|of no goal,  strenuous defence by the Ladysmith One of the curious conditions of this  delegates, who pointed out the fact curiously decided goal was that the  that on a previous occasion a mem- ��������� referee stated'to Ladysmith dele-  be r of the Victoria team was only Katps> n������ less than three of them,  suspr-mled for one week after striking , *n'at the   goal    was not jost and to  a fellow member  Sergeant French stated that he  was afraid to give his decisions in  the game for fear of violence. For  this he was reprimanded by thc Association.  Sergeant Richardson then handed  in his report saying the Garrison had  protest and he would do what he.  f*ould for them. Nevertheless his report was not in accord with such  statements, and the protest was not  listened to and was dismissed. The  Ladysmith delegates then left the  meeting not at all satisfied with the  treatment they had received.  London, April 3.���������The Prince of  Wales underwent an operation today  at Marlborough House, the nature of  which was not divubged in the official  statement subsequently issued. The  public was assured that nothing serious was the matter by Sir Francis  I-I. Lakingiand Sir Frederick Treves,  the court physicians, whose signatures are appended to the statement  as follows: "Owing to a slight operation this morning the Prince will  be confined to his room for a few  days. His condition gives no rise to  uneasiness. No bulletins will be issued."  As      further evidence that nothing  alarming     i.s the matter with     the  Prince he yesterday attended church  and  visited' an artist's  private   studio. , When H en ry White, the retiring  secretary     of the American,embassy  who      has  been appointed  to Italy,  and Mrs.  While lunched with       the  Prince and Princess of Wales on Saturday,      the.  Prince   was  in splendid '  health and spirits,  Gunshu  Pass,   April  2.���������The situation here "is unchanged.   General Mis-  tchenko has moved forward into close*  touch  with  the Japanese and keeps  up constant skirmishing.  Elsewhere everything is quiet. Gen.  Mictchenko, when he learned of the  beginning of the panic during there-  treat from Mukden, though an unhealed wound forbade his working,  drove in a carriage to his force -and  assumed command, which he has  since retained, though hc is unable  to ride over the deeply mirred roads  which are beginning to tdry.  Native reports, which may be taken for     what they are worth, state  the Japanese are leaving before   the  Russian  front  only a screen  capable,  with   the help  of  the  Mukden       and  Tie Pass fortifications and garrisons,  of     holding in  check    General  Linevitch     and  transferring the bulk of  their     five armies   to   Vladivostock,  and     by means of a wide movement  through Mongolia to Tsitsihar.  Considering thc great distances involved,  the plan appears to be almost    impracticable,   but   Japanese   intoxication  from continued successes,     bold  iniative and dogged perscrvance must  be  reckoned with.  f'It afTords an opportunity for Russian cavalry, which  thus  far  has  displayed   an. insignificant role,   to distinguish itself      by  penetrating  the  Japanese intentions.  General Linevitch has  ordered'    the  resumption of drills, keeping the soldiers occupied in the daytime,,   and  music in  the vivouacs at night.    An  energetic regii#e is being instituted.  The men are attached to.-'their .commander on account of his simple, soldierly style of living.f  Reports that Beriberi has been pre-  \alcnt among the Russian troops at  any time are unfounded. No case  has been reported. The army is being supplied with equipment for the  summer, which the officers especially  need, several regimen(s during the retreat throwing away all the officers'  baggage.  Gunshu  Pass,  April. 3.���������A  renewal  of fighting is expected shortly.     The  concentration  of   the  Russian   army  is  complete,  wiLh  its  advance  lines  south of the station of Sipinghai,   74  miles north of Tic Pass.   The Japanese a-re     screening   their  movements  well by means of cavalry,  and it is"  difficult  to  locate  thc bulk  of  their  army.    A heavy movement seems to  be in progress on thc Russian flanks.  The  railroad  station  at  Changtufu,  '10 to 50 miles above Tie Pass, is occupied  by  Japanese artillery, but so-  far ascertainable it does not coyer a-  large body of troops.  A   two-wheeled cart of  the  Russo-  Ohinesc Bank containing more than  $2,500,000,      which  was  lost during  the  retreat  from Mukden,  has    been  'found, but the cash of the ninth regiment of artillery,   which   was     also  Jost, is undiscovered.  A movement of Chinese bandits led  hy  Japanese officers  through Mongolia, in the direction of Tsitsihar, 300  miles  west of Harbin,  has becn    reported and  pressure is being brought  by  the Japanese in China for an open alliance with Japan.    Vuanshikia,  governor  of  Pechili   province,      and  General Ma, commander of the Chinese  forces  on   the  frontier,  arc  said  to he at the head of this agitation.  General     Linevitch's headquarters  arc   in   General   Kuropatkin's       old  train.       Thc  Chinese continue.       to  bring in stores.  FROM   LINEVITCH.  St.  Petersburg,   April  3.��������� General  Linevitch,   in  a despatch  dated   April  2nd,  says:      "The situation  remains  unchanged.    A Russian patrol during  the night  of  March   27Hi  surrounded  a Japanese   patrol   consist ing   of  si*  ���������dragoons   in   the    illage   of   Baichau-  chentz,  on   the extreme Russian  left.

St. Petersbcrg, April 2���������The trial  of Maxim Gorky on the charge of  drawing up proclamation with the object of overthrowing the existing regime and disturbing public orders, has  been postponed until May 10.  St. Petersbcrg, April 3.���������An Imperial.manifesto published in the Finland Gazette today, directed that in  compliance with the retruest of the  Finnish diet" the military service law  for Finland, issued July 1901 be tern  pbralily repealed, pending i legislative  settlement Of the .question. The Gazette also announces that by Imperial decree of March 29, the temporary,  decisions regarding the dismissal of  Finnish Judges be repealed.  Lodz, April 3���������The would-be assassin of Police Commissioner Szabal-  iocz,. of the second .district, who was  seriously injured Saturday afternoon  by a bomb which was thrown at hiru  in the street, is dead. Never regained consciousness after being cut  down by the policemen who arrested  him. Considerable excitement was  caused at midnight by two Cossacks  who attacked four pedestrians, killing two and wounding the others.  The Governor General has prohibited  the sale of   revolvers.   The gun deal-  Other  disturbances  have occurred. The  streets had been patrollen throughout  the day, the authorities     having an-  ticipatedtrouble.    Conditions here are  causing much uneasiness and nervousness.     Printed     proclamations have  been     found in the streets warning  the public against walking near government buildings  and  other : places,  as bombs would be thrown in tHe'sej  quarters. Several  parents whose children are attending school in defiance  of the school strike have been warned  by the latter to withdraw the children as the building would be blown  up.   Eepresentatiyes of the party of  violence (it is not quite clear whether they are revolutionists or socialists) are visiting private persons and  levying contributions for ammunition,  They produce lists of names; with the  amounts   /to be   collected from, each  and require the" contributor to sign  his name opposite these assessments  which range     from 50 cents to $50.  When  Governor-General  Maximoyitch  arrived here ten days ago to assume  his official duties he ordered that the  Cossack detachment awaiting him at  the station be     dismissed, saying he  did not     want     an escort.   Driving  through the city today, however, the  Governor General's carriage was surrounded     by 20    Cossacks.   The editors of the Polish     newspapers here  were summoned to the castle yesterday. Governor  General Maximo-  ers have becn ordered to close all re-  vitch received each of them separate- -volvers in sealed cases and hand them  ly, greeting   them in a friendly man-  over to the police. fc  STATIONMASTER ROBBED.  Tiflis, April 2���������As the station-master at Kutais was driving to the local treasury, accompanied by an armed escort, he was attacked by four  armed men, who overpowered the escort and robbed the station-master  of $3,000.

Nevertheless,   the difficulties  of   loafing  further ;oans     in France and the ab-  ssn'ce of assistance on  whhh unofficial  Russia,     at     least,    had vaguclu  counted,  incline The scales  somewhat  in     favor    of the     western niUhbor  St. Petersburg, April 3.���������General  Batkanoff, the recently appointed whose benevolent neutrality and iron  commander of the third Manchurian tier pledge enabled Russia t.i :e  army,   lunched   with  Emperor  Nicho-'in the field a Manchurian y      so  las  today and "discussed   with      His   | well supplied with artillery. Decided  Majesty  the  miliiary   situation      in    pleasure  is  also  expressed  at       the  the Far East.   He says the Emperor   rocks encountered by the new Anglo-  did     -not mention  the question     or  peace.  FIGHTING.  Tokio,  April 2.���������The following official advices  have been received  fro.m  Army  headquarters in Manchuria:  "Our scouts advanced toward Hai- /  ( Continued on Page Four.)  French Entente. The Russ terms  the visit of the German Emperor to  Tangier as a demonstration against  the Entente, and points out that the  refusal of Emperor William to recognize French pretensions must deeply impress the Moroccoians to the disadvantage of both France and Great  Britain.   "Expectedly,"   the       Russ  says,  "a grouping of  powers  in West  Europe     has begun and perhaps wo  are on theicvc of great developments  in  international events."  Tiie     Vovosti sees in the. German  Emperor's supposed pleasure trip to  Jerusalem,   Constantinople  and  Tangier,  a fixed  plan   to  uphold  Turkey  in Morocco and create a "Mussulman  peril" which is Germany'.s answer to  Great Britain's "Yellow Peril." The  paper expresses  the- belief  that      it  will result in a strengthening of    the  bond    between  Great Britain       and  France,   the  embittcrmcht  of       the  feeling between France and Germany  and    increased     araments, but that,  there is no possibility of war,  since  Berlin fully comprehends the madness  of a conflict with Great Britain   and  France allied.    In the discussion   of  peace, several'papc-rs refer fo the AsV  sociated      Press     despatches,   which  have been  retelegraphed from     New  iYork,   lyim-  special  stress   on      the  statement th.;!

As  representing this industry it might .���������  be mentioned that the coal shipped  from the Island, to date, amounts to  19,940,587 tons, with a valine of %W,-  203,28S������ and 149,556; tons cf.<o'.;e,  with a value of $917,780, atota-.of  $01,151,065.

She is an excellent linguist, understanding both  French and Spanish, and when the arbitration party went from this country  to The Hague a couple of years ago to  settle the question of the disposition  ���������f tbe pious fund s^e went along as  translator of Spanish, doing incidentally some stenographic reporting. On a  more recent occasion Miss Hanna did  the same kind of work in connection  with the Venezuelan claims commission.  Timber,  (b.) The value of the immense .timber resources     of Vancouver Island,  with its high class Douglass fir, ce  dar etc., Jias already been realized by  the great lumber companies. The Vic^  loria Lumber Company, of, Chomain-,  is,  has among its iiiembeis shrewdi  Wisconsin and Michigan lumber kings'  who  have     secured,- and now- hold;  hundreds of millions of feet of splendid  timber and - arc continually     increasing  tli3ir holdings.   Their     ex-i  port trade now running from. 30,000,-;  000 to 50,000,000    of feet per yearj  .will no 4oubt be largely increased by.  t'.*e l.rginning of-work on the Panama  (anal, for the demand", which will be  supplied largely from this section for  j timber io use on the groat work, will  amount to hundreds of millions     of-  I feet. , Other    companies, Shawnigan  Lake,  Haslam and other companies '���������  are turning out large  quantities    of  lumber and shingles. -        r  -  , Harbors and Waterways.     '  - (c.) Harbors and waterways" in  connection with Vancou\er Island is  a subject understood much better by  men who "go down to sea" ' than  landsmen. But opposite to the mainland and direct across from Vancouver, Oyster Harbor or Ladysmith  Bay, has Jong been known as a safe  and commodious harbor. It is one  where large wharves are. already established in - connection with thc coal  export trade and with the freight"  business, as the point, of transfer by'  E. & M. grant. The total value of  the mineral product, to date for Vancouver island and vicinity is given  by the Provincial Mineralogist, Air.  VV. P. Robertson, as 275,322 tons of  a value of $4,378,370.  Pottery Clay.  ��������� The clay found in the Extension  Mines is regularly shipped to \ ic-  toria;to,���������the, pottery works for the  manufacture of sewer pipes and pottery1 of various kinds.  Stone and Lime.  "Magnificent building stone is found  at various points. The quarry at  Duncan, lying contiguous to the E.  & N. 'railroad, furnishes - high -class  building stone that should be in. demand where hea������y stone work is required, ;while lime quarries also exist on the line of the railroad. Good |  brick clay is found- in Nauoose harbor above Nanaimo, and ��������� limestone  on-the line of the railroad, near or  at Esquimalt Harbor. *  ���������o���������  Water Power.  Of water power, some very large  and permanent ' streams are found  with, natural falls, some again can  without great expense be developed.  It seems safe to assume that great  water power can be secured, comparatively cheap, at various points  on Vancouver Island., Particularly is  this the case in the northern part  of the Island.  the C.P.R.  Wkra To* HaT* * Cold.  There are' apt to be symptoms of  "weeplness" with a cold. The lids are  red and sometimes swollen. Particularly is this so if tbe eyes are lnc-liued  to be at all weak. Under these conditions don't use them- more than is necessary and bathe with a mixture of  two ounces of camphor water and two  grains of borax   Forcible-use an eye       cup. Half fill it with the wash, adding .1 foun(i -along  a little hot water to take off the chill.  Fit the cup ove* the eye, throw, the  head back, opening the eye wide, -letting the liquid bathe, every portion of  tbe eyeball. This will reduce any irritation, also remove any inflammation.  Aching limbs and joints are more than  often an accompaniment of a cold. A  good general rubbing with.alcohol or  spirits of camphor will take away the  stiffness. The fever accompanying a  cold affects the hair as well*as tbe  body, so that daily massage will be  necessary. This will prevent the hair  falling and also aid In keeping .up the  general circulation.  for the Island freight. In  connection with  this matter  it     is  worthy of, remark' that for the last  three years the transfer barge     has  made its daily trip, and has rarely, is  ever, been delayed on account of bad1  j weuther  or - unfavorable - conditions,  and has' never met with' an accident.  | Nanaimo     Harbor,    Departure Bay,  Chamainus and other safe harbors are  the coast.

In the olden  days Till the wit and brightness of the  time seemed to focus about the breakfast and dinner tables, and nearly all  the celebrated stories of wit and repartee that have come down in history  have been originated during mealtime.  Nowadays people speak of their worries and troubles at the table, look up  train time and read papers during  breakfast, and if there is anything disagreeable to tell they prefer mealtime  for such remarks. It has been suggested that children should be trained to  ���������peak well and cheerfully during  meals, Just as they are trained to eat  properly. Each habit will cling and  make them much sought after in society. Worry is bad on tbe digestion,  and so is the fashion of bolting the  food.

It is not easy to find a  section,    of country that is exactly  right in all respects.  It is, perhaps,  impossible to find such a country, but  for     a fair chance to make a home  with  comfortable surroundings     the  section of country along'the line of  the Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway  is well worth considering.   A few of  the  most  prominent  ������f  <lie  island's  productions  and     natural resources  only are mentioned in this article.  Coa} Deposits  (a.)   First among the natural    re-  Bourees are tho great coal measures  north end of the island safe harbors  are-found that may yet be used as  last ports of call for steamers leaving Victoria for the Orient, fast  trains - .connecting from Ladysmith  landing, or conveying to, passengers  and  mails'.  Fisheries.  The, waters of Vancouver Island  teem with fish. Hsrring in vast quantities visit our shores. A profitable  .trade in fisheries which includes, off  our more nocthern shores, haiibat and  other deep sea fish, is being built up  and is capable of much greater development.  Mining.  In connection with the mineral developments of the Island, it must be  understood that only during the past  five years has any attempt at metal  mining becn made on a large scale. ���������  On the west coast of- the Island, beginning at East Sook, mineral has  been found and small . shipments  .made from San Juan, "Port Renfrew,  Alberni, Uchueklesit, Clayoquoit;  Kennedy Lake, Taferno Inlet, (Deer  Creek), Bedwccl Sound, (Bear Riv-,  er), Trout River, Clayoquoit- Sound,'  Sidney Inlet, Ahousett, Ahatlasett,  Nootka, Kyuquot and Quatsino,'  while in the middle of the Island at  Central lake a large deposit of mineral has recently been discovered.  The schist beds lying to the south  of the coal measures and commonly  known as the Mt. Sicker schist belt,  ex.tends from Mt. Sicker up to the  Nanaimo Lakes which has been opened and worked at seven points, a  distance of 40 miles: Namely, Mt.  Sicker, Mt. Brcnton, Chemainus, Ma-  juba, Rhinehardt, Nanaimo Lakes,  and Englishman^ River. Owing to  the fact that the land is heavily  timbered, prospecting is necessarily  slow and - expensive, great importance must bc attached to thc cutting of trails inland from the railroad. As the result of such a trail,  three years ago, from Ladysmith 6  miles out, several mineral locations  have been made in that vicinity, including the Majuba, and extending  west to "the Rhinehardt and Nanai-  Lakes property. It would appear  to be of the first importance to cut  trails in order to open up the country to" the prospector. ' The opening  up of this mineral belt and the development of the mineral claims will  follow the construction of a branch  road, and the route from Mt. Sicker  and Mt. Brenton up thc Chemainus  valley appears the most feasible as  it would follow along the line of the  claims mentioned to the Nanaimo  Lakes,  on  to and  including  Alberni.  It is stated that the Nanaimo  Lakes properties have large showings of ore and would undoubtedly  make producing comes with railroad  Agricultural Wealth.  Agricultural development on Vancouver - Island must be very great  in the immediate future. Tracts of  land will each year be cleared and  put into crops if railway facilities  are given to certain sections that  now find valuable farm lauds too far  from markets. Included in farming  stock raising is becoming a marked  feature in Island development. High,  grades of cattle are being raised  from inported stock, and the butter  and'cheese of Vancouver Island is  now well known for its high grade-  Hunting and Fishing.  The big game of Vancouver Island  has not been hunted extensively and  is abundant in certain sections. Deer  and other four-footed game is found  in all parts of the Island. Ducks,  geese, pheasants, grouse and quail  are to be found in season in numbers that gladden tlie heart of the  hunter. .With thc development that  will result from the extension of  the. lines of the E. & N. Railway,  North "Vancouver-Island will increase  its wealth many fold. Mines will be  opened and other natural sources of  wealth t now valueless, will, with  transportation, soon prove " to the  world that as a whole there is no  other part of the rich Province of  British Columbia that can equal  Vancouver .Island.
