The dawn of brightness is at  hand. Thc way in which the members of the board discussed the electric light gtnestion last night gi'.cs  -indication that, they will take hold  of tho matter in a business-like way.  They are all aiming to get the place  out of darkness.  All other business having been disposed of, Alderman Speiice, asked the  Mayor if lie had found, when ,in Victoria,    if it     would     jlA'������lM>ssi������.H-,'to  Alderman     Urcu    stated    that the  ���������purchase the   Hush Creek rights.

The momjoer, Mr.  Far  ter of Inland Revenues May|  Run for Vfctoria  to get any  He understood, however, that Mi.  II. Cecil, \th<* maiia^Kn of the company now holding the rights, was on  his way hack from England and expected to arrive here in a week or  two. Would it not he well to lf-ave  _ie matter o������������,r until his arrival?  Alderman Spence said he w<-s not  at all convinced that <a plant could  be operated hy the water in Bush  Creek, even if the city could buy  thc lights.- Last week he was in  conversation with dipt.. Mcintosh,  of Winnipeg, and-that gentleman had  , told him. that in a ManitoJ>a, town,  population 2,000, a steam plant was  operated successfully. ' Fuel* was  higher theii* than heft*, they haying  to use wood, for which they pay  $2* per cord. Continuing, Aid.  Spence said in his opinion >t was on--  ly waste '������ of lime to try and get the  Bush Creek rights when it was  doubiful if the city gained possession, if it would lie any use. In the  speaker's opinion, it .was- obvious  that a steam plant would -*ay. If  they could make it. lsiy in a town ot  two. thousand population surely they  could in Ladysmith.  His Worship said before presenting  a by-law ��������� to the people the members  of the council should get all the information possible. They should  find out exactly what light would  cost during the year, for both private and business houses. If they  knew exactly what they .would hav_  to pay Jor light thc people would he  lar more likely to favor the borrowing of money.  'Before, deciding not to go any further with the water power proposition the (council should consider the  possifcili' of turning McLeod:.s creek  into Bush Creek, that of course, if  the rights on the latter were obtainable. A great many were of the  opinion that the water of the two"  creeks would furnish sufficient power  both in 9ummer  and winter.  Alderman XJren favored finding out  exactly what the lights would cost  the people if a steam power plant-  was tnst-alled. He Ihoiin-Jit with His  Worship that this should lie the first  step for the council to lake and believed that if convinced that the cost  or 1'ig-hting the r houses with electricity would he no greater than coal  oil, pretty nearly all residents-would  have,the lights installed. All lihe  aldermen expressed Uie opinion that  an attempt, should he made by the  council to get the place decently  lighted , and then the matter dropped.  TRUANT  OFFICER  Messrs.  II.   Carroll and H. Hughes  forming a -telegation from, the School  Board,     asked leave    to address, the  council on     a matter of importance.  Permission    being granted, Mr. Carroll said it had     come to the notice  of the school board that a lair-ge mu-m  ber    ot children     of school .age were  not attending the city     school,  and  he    and his     colleague, Ms*. Hughes,  were authorized by the board to approach the     council and re-q^est tihe  memliers    to devise     the     way and  means    of getting   these children at  school.        Last   year there   ' was a  paid tmant     officer who rounded up  all   Uie truants,     and in consequence  there were no     children running the  streets    during,     the day.     But this  office, as no doubt some members   of  the council would recollect Ras abolished when the new act was passed.  The school trustees were anxious to  have a good truant officer appointed,  In a siihvLVieht'' discussion on. th*-  '���������.icstion Mr.'Carroll .pointed out  tli'at for thc interest oi. the city as  well as   for the childiens' own good,  in the matter and his worship was  convinced that the government? would  ask a very reasonable sum of money  ior the hose.

Minn., Feb. 3.���������Alleging  ' tho payment of $1000 to James  Lindsay as an inducement to marry  her mother, thereby securing thousands of dollars worth of property-  under lhe provisions of her father s  will, is tho charge in the deposition  of Alonzo J. Whittman, now serving  a sentence in Auburn prison for forgery against his sister, Mrs. J.  C'ibbs, in tho suit to'bo tried in the  federal court in this city Fob. 1-1,  to set aside a deed alleged to be  l'raudulend.  George F. Perkins, who held a  judgment of ������15,000 against Whittman, is plaintiff in tho suit, and  ' Clara J. Gibbs, Alfred L. Gibbs an.'  the Cloquet Lumber Co. are defendants with, the Detroit Trust Co.  The suit involves ,the heir to 4000  acres of valuable land in St. Loui."-  county. Reuben Whittman, fathei  of Alonzo and Clara Whittman, was  possessed of a large fortune at tho  time of his death at Dansville, N.Y.  in 1S8S. lt consisted of a paper  liii'll worth "$2i>0,000, real estate and  personal property in New York, and  the 4000 acres of land in this county. By the terms of his will Whitt  man left his wealth to the second  daughter with a life estate to his  wife. If she married, however, it  was provided that it was to go to  the son and daughter, Alonzo and  Clara.  It is alleged that the sister induced James Lindsay to marry her mother, and thereby secure possession  of the bulk of the fortune for herself  and Alonzo.  Whittman from his cell room i.  Auburn prison, - declares he was in  Europe at the time of the second  marriage of his mother took place  and that he knew nothing of it.  When asked whether she had paid the  $1000 for the proposed charge, Mrs.  Gibbs answered. "I did not pay it.  It might have been paid by my attorneys."  It is assorted that on the face of  the records and depositions. Mrs.  Gibbs paid nothing for the j.ropi-rty  and the contention in the suit is as  to whether tho property was fraudulently conveyed to her. Whittman,  it is charged has no interest in the  result of the suit.  DAVID SPENCER       ^  ^aaaa&���������(Nanaimo) Ltd.!  [Is ther_ a Hatiess Woman?  A Hatiess Miss?  A Hatiess Child?

In the  North tho sockeyo pack was 243,184  cases, and the total pack, including  other kinds of salmon, 290,.'524 cases.  Comparison of Years.  The total British Columbia pack  last season was considerably less  than it was in 1901, the last previous large year in the four-year cycle  but it was larger than the pack' of  1897, another large year ia the four-  year cycle. The total pack in 1001  was 1,236,156 cases, or 08,696 cases  more than the pack of last year. In  1897 tho total pack amounted to 1,-  015,477 cases, or 151,983 cases less  than the pack of last year.  In red and white springs on the  Fraser river and in tho North the  total pack was 28,359 cases. Humpbacks were packed to the number of  13,970 cases, and cohaos packed  numbered  44,458 cases.  The packers are already preparing  their estimates for the pack of the  coming season, which is expected to  be much lighter than was that of  1902, the corresponding year in the  four-year cycle, when the number of  cases put up was 625,982.

DAVID JOHNSON  w_ :_.__-,. LADYSYllT  *  '���������r  ���������������  1  GAME aND FOREST  {WARDEN'S REPOT  The following from tho first report  of the Provincial Game and Forest  Warden may be of interest to local  hunters:  Pit-lamping.  Tho   practice     of using pit lamps  should be stopped at all costsf There  is a tremendous lot of it done    on  Vancouver Island and all along    the  coast.     It   1ms   not   only been   the  cause of a great many cattle    being  killed, numbers of deer wounded    to  get away and die a lingering death,  does and fawns being iiadlscriuiinate-  ly shot, but it has also led to loss  of human life.   The game   warden or  Constable who, in pursuit of his duty  gocs>    out      to prevent this practice,  runs serious risk of his life, as it is  absolutely    necessary to follow    the  man till he shoots at or kills a deer.  ,lf his presence is known his time   is  wasted;   und if it is not known,   ho  .stands a good chance of getting shot  by mistake.    Then,  if ho does,   after  taking his life in his hand, obtain a  conviction,  the chances aro the   ninn  convicted    gets off with a light fine.  There is one,   and  only one,   way of  Putting a  stop   to  pil-lnmping,   nnd  that is by making the act of using a  pit-lamp a Telony. punishable by tne  or two years' imprisonment.  Protection of Moose.  I recommend   that moose be,absolutely protected in British Columbia,  south  of the  Canadian    Pacific  railway, for the next five years, and that  an increased penalty bo imposed   for  killing them.       At  the present  time  there are still a  few moose lefc  East Kootenay and  they should  allowed  to  increase.  Protection of Elk on  Island.  I  does not accompany his trophies, as  they have generally to be prepared  for shipment, and to hold the head  till these inquiries were made would  cause  considerable  annoyance, or  might result in thc head being spoilt  This tag system is now in use in  Ontario and other places, and has  beenfound to work satisfactorily.  Black Game ancl Capercailzie.  As there is a strong probability of  some of these birds being imported  into the Province during the coming  year.it will be necessary to put them  on the protected list.  in  be  Jf PHONE 66  >'���������'������������������    - i   '      ''  Express Work  LIGHT TEAMING  Wood and Biik- 'ht.'SiU  SEE J.

I think it  advisable    to   give sufficient    notice .  that these  animals are going   to  be '  protected,  as huelj   the Game Book 1  has been advertising the sport     '  of'  this country, and  people should have j  time  to know they cannot kill wapiti.  iUl  ON THE COAST  i i  Protection of Bear. I  At the present    time   non-residents  are not compelled  to lake out a licence for hunting bear.     This fact has  been the ' means   of considerable Joss  to  the Province,  ns  from .10 to     L">  non-residents     were     in   (lie country  last spring and summer for the sole  purpose of hunting  bear.  ' Bears aic gctlintr .scarce all     over  the southern  part   of  this continent,  aad the grizzly especially so,        and  more  people  are  looking for        now  hunting grounds  for them,   and  their  is no reason why boar should not bo  as valuable an asset to the Province  jS   asany other kind  of game..   Another  jfilj reason why bear should be placed on  the protected  list is that they,      al  present,   afford non-residents  an     excuse for   not  taking      out a hunting  licence.     They can say they are only  going to hunt bear, and may in reality bo after moose or any other kind  of     big   game.       IP   they kill their  moose,   they may or may hot      pay  their fee,  according     to   where they  are and what are the chances'       of  avoiding doing so.      This makes   -a  lot of work watching that those so-  called bear hunters    do not kill  any  other kind of     game.    It is akiiown I board  fact that several people have-evaded  the  licence under this excuse.  .Exportation  of Game Trophies  With  regard   to   the  exportation.-.of,  trophies from the     Province by nonresidents who have taken out a hunt  ing licence,     there has been     a good  deal of trouble in determining whether the shipper has obtained a licence  or not.     To  do- away with     this  difficulty ami  make it easier to    prevent  the  illegal  exportation  of    the  heads of game animals, I recommend  that a now form of licence bo issued,  with tags attached for each different  kind of game,   and that it be necessary to have one of  those tags    attached to each head before it can be  shipped,   and  that  all heads bo shipped in open  crates,  so  that the tag  can be got al. Under tho present  condition of the' law, it is hard to  tell whether it is lawful or not for  a head to be shipped, till exhaustive inquiries have been made as to  whether the shipper has n licence or  not.     As a general thing,   the  owner  From the bill, of which notice .was  given in the house and which has  since hjeen printed., it will be seen  that ATcGill university proposes to  establish a college at the coast, and  as far as is known at present, Vancouver is to be the chosen spot.  The scheme has been developed by  Prol. Tory who paid a visit to Van  couver and Victoria six months ago  for the purpose of negotiating for a  site and ascertaining what local financial aid would be forthcoming. It  is understood that his aogotiations  were satisfactory hence the measure  now before the legislature. In the  first instance the college will house  a single faculty, science, aod mining  will be thc chief studies.  This decision has been forced upon  thu organizers  by the fact that Bri.  tish Columbia is the most important  mining section  of  the Dominion and  at present students have to go from  here     to     McGill for  their ordinary  course    and come back every season  with the     summer    school  for their  mining practice.      This  will  be     remedied by the proposed college which  wijl be affiliated with McGill.     It is  also    understood     that  tho  wealthy  eastern   benefactors    of  that  institution have promised to contribute lib  erally  to  the establishment   of      the  new college, and as it  will form the'  nucleus      of. a  provincial university,  there is no doubt us to its popularity and should be none as to its sue  cess.  In the bill provision is made for  government representation on the  of; management and power is  taken to conduct any part of tho  higher .education now in the hands of  the high schools of the province.  Nothing is said about an endowment  and that will be left for the future,  and will largely depend on whether  tho new departure now proposed is  found adequate or whether as is desired by many of the leading educationalists, a provincial university is  established, by the government to bo  directly supported from the public  fund*.  , proien  by     the face  that the jewel- f  di-'s  dummy clocks  have shown     the I  time since the early part of the last  century. -      "��������� J  All the clocks prior to 1S61 did  not show that time any more than  they do today. Some of them show  five minutes to one, some fourteen  minutes to nine and'other positions,  but in nearly all tho hands are eqiii- \  distant from the figure twelve. j  As far as 18 minutes after 8 or1  18 minutes to 4 is concerned,* ���������-this,  is most symmetrical, the first being  one-third the distance from 12, and  the second two-thircs. In this position they leave a long sweep abovo  for the imprint, of the jeweler's name  and a diagram of the seconds dial  when, such is used.  Tfow the Lincoln story got into  circulation we do not know, unless it  was the offspring of some reporter's  imagination. It    has undoubtedly  been kept alive for business as    well  las sentimental reasons.  A certain dummy clock maker in  New York' has obtained considerable  advertising on several occasions tjy  telling a story to reporters about a  jeweler rushing into his father's  place after Lincoln was shot, and  asking him to paint the face on the  dummy clock lie hud ordered at 3 8  minute* after 8 to represent.the hour  that Lincoln died; that his father  liked the position of the hands in  that way and used it on subsequent  clocks, making a stoncil from which  all markings were done.  The story,  as it goes around,      in  most cases is to tho effect that after  Lincoln  was shot,  a mooting of   the  National Jewelers' Association,      bo-'  ing then in session, the Jewelers   re-  solvetf     to perpetuate the time     on  their signs,  and the resolution    was  adopted  to, this effect;  but inasmuch  as     there was.no National Jewelers'  Association at     that time���������in     fact,  there was no meeting  of jewelers   of  which  we have any record���������tho story  is a yarn    lon its face, even if     the  proof was not clear that such a Position of the hand had been common  prior .to 1861.
