Goodfellow and the Road Master are Here  Today Looking Over the Conditions  ARRIVING  NEWS BY WIRE  a  terday, and which' appears below, says that a ship thought to be  Tass of Mellfort was wrecked off  Amphrite Point, Ucululet,' yesterday.  From Mr. F. H'awes, manager oi  the Coli-ery Wharf, The Ledger has  ibeen able to obtain |>articulurs '��������� of the  vessel in question.  , The Pass of Meifort was in charge  of Capt. Cougail and was a'British  ���������ship of two. thousand one hundred  and ninety-six,tons tons, and capable  ��������� ot carrying cargo of abo������*t four thousand three hundred tons. She left  Ancon, South Amer.'ca, , fifty-eight  days afeb and was coming to the/Royal Roads - for orders. She was to  load lumber on the coast. No doubt  is now entertained in shipping circles that the wrecked vessel is the  Pass of Meifort and mariners familiar with the West Coast surmise  that she got too far north and was  ,'unable to brave the storm that was  raging on Tuesday night. The place  at which she was wrecked is close to  Ugly Channel, known hy that name  on account of a very dangerous reef  tin it.

The  records  as to  the rate of sailing,  he said,', were of  necessily   very  indefinite.   The speeds attained, however,   were very slow,   even  if judged  by  the speed of large modern sailing  vessels.    The maximum speed recorded for frigates at the time under con-  sidemliou      was  ten   knots   running  free,   and  eight  to  eight   and   a hall  when close hauled.   ������Vt Trafalgar tlie  average     age of lhe  English. line-of-  ualtle ships was 17, years-. That thc  French    ships   in  1805   were mostly  newer  than  ours  was  mainly due to  the enormous .losses which tlielr navy  had suffered in the preceding half-century.    Between 178!) ami 1800 there  weie    48   French line-of.-bp.ttle ships  and  03   frigates lost  by    wreck  and  capture. .  'lhe      cost   of ships   varied   largely  from  time to tunc.   The  Royal William,  of   1,JIS1   tonsburden,  built     in  171!),   cost about &H0,800,  being ������ It;  pec ton.   Tlie lioyal  George, of  2,--  0'I6   tons,   built 'in   1750,  cost   ������f>l,-  1UO,    or  ������20.7.     per ion.        In  1800  shijs   of the   line  cost   ������21   per   for  while in  1805 the cost had risen \  to  ������.'if).-l  per ton.    The time  of building  varied,  in   the case of ships of    the  line,      from about five  to ten years,  but was often  longer than othei wise  would . have been necessary In order  to   allow tlie frame to season  well  before     being     pianl-ed.     Tlie armaments   of English and   foreign   ships  had hardly altered more than      the.  ships   themselves during  thc half-century before Trafalgar.  There was so little change in naval  material during the century before  Trafalgar ; that both the designing  anil fighting of ships was less experimental in character than in modern  gun versus torpedo; no doubts about  limes. There was no .question of  ram, subknarinc or mines; no prob������-  lems as to the relat'./ve value of speed  as against coal enHurance, or additional guns or protection; not speculations  as to   the best  Souvenirs of Ladysmith at Knights  Book Store.  M.R, SIMPSON  Solicitor, Cta.  Money to   Loan  -      UDYSVI I  ive  improvement  was  possible  in the  protective material, as was the   case  at present, when processes for  manufacturing improved armor were being  continuajly  discovered.    Since     that  date  steam  propulsion  in its   varied  forms., shell fire, iron and steel    armor,  steel   hulls,  breech-loading    and  rifled guns, torpedoes, mines, high explosives,     electrical appliances, submarines, hadiall been introduced.  The'se changes had  been  threatened  but had still  left intact the  supremacy of the big gun in  the big ship as  it existed * at Trafalgar.    Iu the,   old.  days,   as now,   there   was   sometimes  a strong disposition to discover  defects   in   British   ships.    Our  vessels,  Lt   was said,    sailed  slower,  carried  smaller  and   pooipr   guns   at > a    less  height,  and "were of inferior grade to  those of the  enemy;   they were      designed   with   finer  ends, so  thatthey-  pitched  more heavily  and even uwlan-  gered their'masts,   they  were    older  than  the enemy's,  for we had not  to  build- so many new }ships  fo   replace  injured  ones.    Yet,' in spite of it all,  they generally  brought the enemy L'j  octicn,   and  on  the whole they  generally beat him.   One might hope that,  should   need, unhappily   urise   again,  this,   too,  might be repeated in     our  day.  The discussion was opened by Atl-  in-iial Sir N. Rowdcn-Smith, who said  that at this time our thoughts were  necessarily cai'iied from Trafalgar to  .Japan. Trafalgar bad ensured us  peace cn tlie high seas for 100 years,  and we might hope tbe same would  be true .with. the Japanese victory at  Tsu-shima." Speed, hc thought, had  enabled Admiral Togo at that' battle to place his ships where he pleased; and, though every' warship must  I e a compromise, he hoped that speed  would .not be one of. the factors in  their construction that would be  lightly   thrown  over.   1 o   '     A  GLASGOW   CEMETERY.  urn  Kl  We   wish   you  ���������<cj>  The Compliments  B.S.

Technical advance'*nd commercial development have made combustion a more manageable procedure,  and today the old. argument is replaced by "What are we going to do  about, it? You can't expect>/me to  put in a lot of money in fancy devices to prevent smoke. " This latter  argument can be met only by fact���������  the1 fact that Uie law says he must  prevent smoke. This work, a function of municipal governments, is,in  successful rrogress, and will ultimately lead to a general recognition-  that smoke is not only hot wanted,  but, also it need not be suffered. A  relatively few, but yet a slowly grow  ing number of American cities have  entered on a fight against smoke, and.  a far laigfcr number of .individuals and,  j civic organizations are now engaged  in the struggle.  *-!^ ������*i*> **fr������ ������*^>������ tti ^'������  '& %V +   +   + ST*  .

SILK   SKIRTS   NOT   A NECESSI-  A 'Kansas City despatch says: A  silk skirt is not a necessity, and ,n a  woman purchases one lur husband is  not le-oally. hound to pay for it. This  in effect was the decision rendered today by Judge Gates in the circuit  1 court.  An outlining company sued Carie-  lon   Kinj,  whose  wife  was a regular  customer an 1 inn a bill.    She       purchased  a silik  s';irt  for$lf>.ri0  and as  usual  had it charged.    When the   -bill  came in her husband  refused  to  pay  for the  sliirt.    The company,       after  trying in vain  to collect,  brought suit  King' set     up that-as thc skirt  was  not an art'/cle of necessity  hc was not  bound to pay for it.    Judge     Gates  upheld  his contention  and  taxed    thc  costs against i-'ne company.  "No one need tell me,'' decided the  judge, "that, silk skirts that cost  $1(������.50 arc a necessity for any woman. My wife finds :t possible to live  comfortably and happily and even to  go out in society with skirts that  cost M apiece, 'litis idea of a woman having to tog herself out in silks  and satins,and frippery is all foolishness.
