Rolstou &,  Co., hardware merchants, had changed hands, the business and - stock  having been bought over by a number of local people. It was well  known that negotiations for a change  had been going ou for some time,  but it was not until yesterday that  ihe   business  was completed.  The company, which it is understood is,made up of a number of well  known business men, assumed control of the business yesterday, and.  as soon as the necessary legal preliminaries can be completed, it will  be incorporated. The services (A  Mr.   Rnbt.   Rolstou  will   be retained,  )(to manage the business.  ( In the past Rolston's stare has received a iibevaj patronage from the  Ladysmith public, and all who have  done business with the firm have received entire satisfaction. There is  no doubt, that now the business has  changed hands, with the above capable management, its prospects arj  very bright, for the store will be  run on a purely business basis that  is bound to give universal satisfaction.  session last evening' and a consider-;  able amount of business was transacted.

The letters were filed and  the clerk instructed to forward the  luloimation.  The fame of Ladys.mth for her  stumps seems to have spread to  Vancouver, for a letter vvas recened  irom a firm ot that crty offering for  Mile the Hercules Stump J������xillei-, an  instrument of wide renown and recommended as being incomparable for  -.tump extracting- As the council is  not at present -sufficiintly magnanimous to clear the stumps for pioper-  ty holders- lots, it was decided not  to accept thc offer. The letter was  filed.  Dr. (J. J. Fagan, the Provincial  health officer, wrote requesting the  council to forward to the health department the municipal health officer's report for the year 1004. The  request wa.s grautod.  Another letter  was  received   from  Di. Fagan, who wrote at the request  of the Canadian Society for the prevention  of consumption, enclosing   a.  couple of petitions asking'the council  to sign them. One was to the Dominion Parliament and   the other to  the  Provincial Legislature,   praying     the.  governments to take steps to establish a hospital  in this  province    for  consumptive people.   It  was  decided  to grant the request of the Society  and forward the signed petitions   to  ths Health Department.  The committee appointed to interview the government last week     on  various subjects  made the following  report, which was accepted,  it being  considered most satisfactory-  Wc, the committee appointed by you  to interview the government on several matters pertaining to  the   best  interests of our town,  beg leave to  report  as  follows:  On our way to Victoria it was arranged to- act in conjunction with the  school trustees, and Mr. H. Carroll;  presented th2 claims that the schools  of this place-had on the government,  which were very ably supported by  our member, Mr. Parker Williams.  The unfinished state of the schools,'  the necessity for drainage, the pressing need  of a concrets floor  hi   thc  basement,     were     all very strongly  pressed and intelligently brought    to  the  notice of the Hon.  Mr.   Fulton  and Mr. Robertsmi, and the estimat.  ed cost of such  improvements     was  placed at .$f),000.00  Although no definite promise was  intended/the general impression prevailed that something substantial'  would he forthcoming. <������i  The question of a road leading to  Ihe public wharf was next taken up  by the Mayor and Aldermen Uryden  and Beveri'ilfie with the Ron. Finance  Minist?r. It vvas pointed out that as  this proposed road; wasi outside the  city limits the city council had no  authority  to construct  the same.  As we were not in a position to  know where the proposed road would  be located, we were not able to give  either the distance ������������r the estimated  cost. The Finance "Minister thought  that as the Dominion government had  built the wharf, they should al-:o have  completed the approadi. This, we  explained,  would  be  done.  The -mattor was then W in <'"'  hands of the department to deal  with.  The claim wns next n-.ni'c f..r an appropriation   for  the  streets   in       th"  city,   and   in   an able  sreech,       was  slronglv  supported  by  our  member,  ho pointing nut thc pressing need for  such assistance, eitiiisr as a claim   tho  large     amount  of  roveni'e col Iced nl  h-nni the town for the last four years  College,  Pope Pius  X, has expressed j ^ ^ !nr        ratiorii wl,ile ���������ot  his intention  to appoint new   cardiu-j '  ISLAND  RAILWAY,  The Colonist of today, rays-  "An important meeting ,of the coun  cil of the board of trade will be held  at  11  a'clock  this morning  for     the  -purpose  of  considering  a new    phase  of events which has arisen respecting  the proposed extension of the E.    &  X.   railway   to the  north   end   of   the  island.

The claim   was  then      made      that  the government  should sustain the main  trunk road,  First  Avenue,  through  the city.     A  note was made of this by the minis-  ter   and we have good reason to   expect that a grant will be given    for)  this purpose.  , These ui.it/ters have already     been  lefened      to   the  government  agent  licie, Mi.

After a full explanation by the committee, showing  the advantage it would  be to the citizens, and the impossibility of making any use of it as a park owing to  the hilly and  uneven surface of   the  ground,  Mi    Wilson very kindly consented to have a bill drafted and introduced   as   a government   measure,  explaining at the same  Lime the necessity .that it should be so introduced    Theie  is     only one point that  could-possibly be of any hindrance to  the passage of the act, and which we  do not doubt could  be very readily  oveLcome.  We fell sure that we would not be  doing justice to our member and Mir.  Ilavvtliotnthvvait, >f we did not mention the ialuablo assistance they ren-  dcied us and the very courteous manner we were received by them and introduced to the several members.  The matter   of a wagon road     to  the Maru'ba and the Jubilee mineral  claims, which are situated behind the  town,  was discussed at some length  with     Members  Williams and Waw-  thornwait and it w*as finally decided  to have a joint committee representing these claims and the council     to  wait on  the government at a later  date and press for a grant to '   construct a wagon road to this part of  the country.  This closed the business with the  fe'ivcrrrm'cnt, having- occupied the  greater part of thc afternoon.  The Mayor  and  Aid.  Brydeb then  had   an   interview With  Mr.  Mohen,  the government engineer,  with refer-  ! encc to the sewerage ol" the city. Af-  ! I.cr some     discussion it was agreed  that  if we  would forward the    city  plans  and  profiles  he ^would give   an  estimate, of  the cost,  prepare plans  and  recommend     a sewerage system,  suitable Tor  this  town.  This is  being  done  and  just  as  soon  as  this esti-"  unite   is  received   it  will   be  laidhe-  foreyou.  Respectfully submitted,  ."JOHN  W.  COBURN.  WI LLTAM   BEXERIDGE  ALEX.

It was a try-out for Gotch, "before  about fifty members and sonic friends  but in the fifth round Gotch Knocked  Williams down so hard that he could  not respond  for the call of time for  the     sixth  round.    Instructor Jack  lllrcigcr,'    who referced  the  match,  stepped in and stopped it.   'I he bout  wus   a most   favorable  try-out.       for  Gotch.   Williams  is  said  to      have  fought several battles in Canada,. He  is  taller  than  Gotch  and outweight  him lii'lccn  j onruls  Gotch hits a powerful punch with  either hand. The bout had only gone  three rounds when it became apparent tha,t unless Gotch let up Williams could not last. Frank was put  ting irr body punches und getting  away without a return that was gradually wearing Williams down. The  fourth round was   the better.  The two big fellows went in.    and  mixed it from gong to gong.   When  ���������he fifth round began Gotch went in  after Williams, wl.o was weak-.   The  boxers   were  breaking  from  a clinch  when  Gotch drove his  right to William's head.    Williams was knoc'ed  down, and in falling, injured his arm.  In   tho     opinion' of those who saw  Gotch in this try������out think he .s a  pretty   dangerous- man   for   anyho-iy  to tackle.  2oo Suits of this  Brand ot Clothing just passed  into Stock,  FA1RALL  BREWERY,   VICTORIA  Ass:  SILVER SPRING BREWERY, VIC-  TOIRA.
