Early in the spring  this  firm   erected   a new  boat  house  adjacent   to   the one  previously  used,  and     have     both slocked   with first-  class     boats,     built,   by   themselves.  They-, have in'all some forty       row-  boats,-   three sailboals and "a roomy  launch,     and yesterday  Mr.   Harrup  said    if    they liad     more room .they  would have more boats.  It is not a con Urinous 'performance  of shoving oiTt the. lioafs and taking  111 the money, however. All through  the week t'ays there are few demands  for l.o.its, and, of course, during the  winter time there is scarcely any cle-  maivl. However, theVhuilding of  boats to order occupies the proprietors dining the waiter, and they  state that they have now orders en  ough    in  to last  them  a long  time.  They have     recently  shipped      new  bcja'ls to, Cowichan Lake, and have or  tiers  for more  for  hotels  of       that  place.    Tlie boats,   while  built  here,  are  made  of lumber  supplied       from  Vancouver,   as it  is impossible  to secure  the seasoned  quality needed   in  Ladysini.th.   It  is possible   in       this  way,  to secure a nr-stK"lass roWboat,  built  to  order,   for  about  fifty  dollars.  The boathouse has been established  in Ladysmith about four years, and,  while  business     is  not   particularly  rushing at all times,  it has steadily  progressed     in size    and  number  of  boats.    As   long  as the .present  proprietors     have charge 'Ladysmith  is  assured    of a     well-eqliiipped and up-  to-date   boathouse,   as it   is their   intention to keep adding to. their stock  as   the demand  increases*, and,   in the  future,   as in the past, sustain their  reputation of turning out| first-class  boats at right prices. .. j  Chicago,  Ills., July  17.���������The railway    express  and  department  store  drivers having voted to continue \ the  strike,'union  leaders' predicted    that  the  teamsters' strike -would  be   prolonged  until after the -convention  of  the   International   Brotherhood        of  Teamsters,   which: opens   in Philadelphia    August     7.��������� The department  store  drivers  decided   by  an'almost  unanimciis vote to continue,  the railway express drivers had  taken similar action.    The railway  express drivers voted   in a count, of  IG'-J for war  and   121   for peace.    Ilu-re are   more  than     700   members  of   I he''organization and  the light vote, that        was  east  was due to the  fact   that nearly  half of thc members  -���������* the union obtained employment in  other lines.  The  frequently deferred   plan       of  .Mayor   Dunne   to take   policemen   oh  the  wagons of firms,  affect eel  by the  teamsters' strike,      went.into effect  today in the business districts. Nearly  '100  policemen were   returned      to  ordinary     duties.   For a time'     the  business streets mud rrossings will be  guarded      by     additional   policemen.
