IMPROVEMENT BYLAW WITHDRAWN  Council Decides That the Public  Do Not Want This Bill  Yet  The City Sewerage   Question is  Dropped for the Present  Time  A SCORE BURNED TO  DEATH  ANOTHER       HOTEL  HORROR IN NEW  YORK  THE ESCAPE OF MA  NF WAS MOST DIF  FICULT  FREE TRADE RELATIONS  ADVOCATED:  WISH   FREE   TRADE  WITH  CANA-  ABA  PRICE' FIVE CENTS  JOHN     a LEX^NDER  DOWIEISAGAiN  HEARD FROM  RUSSO^PANESE STRIFE  Council of War Held at St Petersberg Decide to  Fight On^Russiaiis Have All Reached  Tie Pass  , The matter ol thc outlet for the  eity serwrage was again brought up  at last night's council meetiog when  a communication was read from .Mr.  Mohen, stating that lie had received  plans  of  the city,  sent him by  the  city clerk,.and would now be willing  jjive levels etc. for  a sewerage  entire city* and csti-  \h     system for  the  mate of the cost of laying same, for  the  sum of  $400.     The councilmen  were  asked  what action  they would  now  take in the matter f  Aid. Blair said he did not think it  advisable to expend such a large  sum at present on getting levels, as  he felt the money was required more  urgently  for other  purposes.  Aid. Beveridge agreed with Aid.  Blair. In his- opinion the city could  certainly not afford such a large outlay. He- pointed out that if. the  plans were obtained the' city would  not .have the money on hand to-proceed  with the work.  The Mayor said  that once proper  plans were received, a number of residents had     promised to contribute  towards the construction of the outlet.   Before they could proceed witli  any work it was certain that    they  would have to procure an .engineer's  levels,-that would be satisfactory to'  the railway company, or  permission  could not be obtained to  take     the  sewerage under the track, and he con  sidered that the-price offered by Mr.  Mohen  was most reasonable,' and a.  chance  that  would  not be likely ' to  recurr. -  The matter was thoroughly discussed and eventually the aldermen came  to .the conclusion that the finances  of ��������� the city, as they now stand,  would not warrant them expending  such a laiRC sum at present, and Aid.  Beveridge's motion was seconded .  and carried, the clerk receiving in-  r, structions to notify Mr. Mohen that  |t his services would not at present lie  required.  The matter of the telegram received by the Board of Trade reported  to be sent by Mr. Dunsmuir on Feb-  21st, the time that Mr. Hawthorn-  thwaite's penalty clause.to the eight  hour bill was being discussed, stating that it was his intention to  close the mines should the clause  pass,-was brought up. The genuine--  ncss of this message had been doubted by some people, and the ��������� subject  was thoroughly discussed by. the  Council last evening, and was eventually explained and settled to the  satisfaction  of all..  The local improvement bylaw was  committed, Aid. Blair in the chair.  The first clause was read, when Aid.  Nicholson inquired if the people generally were in favor of this by-law.  He asked this question in view of  the fact that it had been turned  down by a public meeting last year.  Aid. Haworth, by whom the bill  was introduced, rose to reply. He  stated that when he introduced the  by-law this year he felt sure the  public were in favor of it, but since  that date circumstances generally  were changed, as had also the opinion of the people, and he was convinced that at the present time, if  the hill passed it would be against  thc wishes of the public.  Aid. Bryden. stated that in his  opinion, the introduction of the bylaw was altogether out of order. By  a large inalority it had been voted  down at a public meeting last year,  and in consideration of this fact he  thought it would be an act of injustice to the people to pass it now.  Aid. Beveridge agreed with Mr.  Bryden and thought that the by-law  should be laid over for six months,  as he felt sure that as things stood  at present very few people would be  billing to- luy out any money n the  city.  The    Mayor  remarked that     there  were    very few people, at the public  meeting      when   the  bill  was  voted  against  last      year,   and   he  hardly  considered  that the council   this year  should   be  guided  by the opinion   of  that meeting.     He knew for  a fact  that a great many who opposed the  bill then were now in/avor of it,   A  large number  of  people residing   on  High street wanted it passed.  His  Wi*!*.*:' n  wer.t on to point out    the  various     advantages    thc     citizens  would derive by the bill  being pass-  pa  Aid.   Malone  said  he agreed  with  Mr.   Bryden,     with respect to   -the  wishes of the people.    It was clear-  that they did not want the bill last  year,  and  iu     his  opinion  another  public meeting should be called     before the  proposed bylaw was passed,  and  the people be given an opportunity to lie heard on the subject.  Neither Aldermen Beveridge or  Bryden thought that it would be advisable to call another public meeting. The people had said they' did  not want it last year and they hardly thought that the public wish had  undergone such a vast change in so  short a time. The discussion continued and after ' a time His Worship said it was obvious that the  Council were opposed to the bill and  suggested that Aid. Haworth ask  permission to withdraw it.'- This suggestion was acted i upon and the bylaw accordingly  withdrawn.  A communication was received  from Isaac Gould complaining that  the sewerage running from High St.  was**.Hiakliig~wa*p"uiitler *his"~ house/  and���������causing a nuisance. He---*asked  that the,matter he. remedied without delay, 'lhe letter was referred  to the Street Committee.  A complaint that obnoxious  smells were arising from the pound,  .was handed over to the Sanitary  Committee for action.  Sundry accounts amounting to  $11-1.75, and bills iu connection with  the school aggregating $111,000 were  referred   to  the   Finance  Committee.  The Finance Committee's report  was received and filed.  It was decided to give the work of  truant officer* to the police constable  and ask for the resignation of the  present officer. This action was decided upon liccause the Council telt  they could not afioid to pay a separate, man for this-work.  His worship stated that he had"  interviewed Mr. Simpson with regard to securing his services for city  solicitor. Mr. Simpson was willing  "to undertake the work, stating what  salary he would require.  After a long discussion it was decided not to employ a solicitor at  present, so the subject for the time  being, was dropped.  Several articles required by the  city constable, were ordered-*--to be  purchased.  Those present at last night's, session were, Mayor Cohurn, Aldermen  Nicholson, Beveridge, Blair, Bryden,  Malone and Haworth.  New York; Afareh ll-rNinc persons  dead, two seriously injured, son.e so  seriously that they may die, and two  hundred      persons  homeless,   is   the  brief story-of New York's latest fire  horror.    Tha victims of today s  disaster  were  typical cast-side people,  the building a typin.1 east shJe tenement,  and  the  scenes  attending     ib  were in many ways peculiar to    the  cosmopolitan quarter.   To apparently,  reckless displays of heroism shown by  firemen, police mid volunteer rescuers  alone is due the fact that t. e l.st o\\  dead is not far greater. At least    a  score of people were burned  to death I  several were so  badly  injured     they {  may  die,  and" forty others  received  i  serious    injuries  in     tlie fire,  whicli j  practically     destroyed  a five storey  tenement house in Allen street.

His appointment is the  subject of much comment, inasmuch  I resentative of one of the banps said  the postponment was for such an indefinite period that it was not likely  that  their  issuance  would occur for  some time    to come.    The postponement     was  attributed  to the uncertainties of  the  war situation.     The  Tsmps   says' "It   was  quite  natural  that, Paris  bankers should refuse   to  sign a contract, in view of the conditions in  Manchuria, and the entire  ignorance of the financiers concerning  the real      intentions-'of the Russian  government."      The  paper  declares  the postponement will continue until  Russia's intention becomes clear.- The  as  France,-through her ambassador "!'Journal''Kps Bats, in its financialar  is still exercising  the duty of pro-' it,icIe' "sa-vs "M**"y people consider the  DAMAGE BY  RAIN  STORM  tecting.Catholics in   the Orient   and  the relations between France and the  Holy See have been  broken.    Great  secrecy  is  maintained  concerning the  instructions given     Bishop Porcelli,  but   the  Associated   Press      learns  that  in  all  ceremonials  and  general  matters he is  to ignore the rupture  between  France and   the Holy  See.  In  purely  religious  matters,  however,   he   must  permit   no  interference  from  the French ambassador.  Orders  have been sent to  all  Roman  Catholic  congregations   in  Turkey, without distinction as to nationality,  to  recognize the paramount authority of  the delegate.  postponement as evidence thatt Rus  sia has reached the end of her,     resources." ^.  RUSSIANS WITHOUT  STORES.  General Kuroki's headquarters in  the -field, Monday, 13, via Fusan,  March 14.���������The greater part of the  retreating- Russians are supposed to  have reached Tie Pass.   Thc pursuing  Japanese have    frequent encounters  with the rear guards.   eGeneral Kuropatkin    must remove his supplies  from Tie Pass    if he plans a retirement to Harbin, as they will be necessary to maintain the army during  the inarch.    The Russians have     no  stores between Tie Pas* and Harbin.  FROM KUROPATKIN.  St. Petersburg, March 14���������General  Kuropatkin,   in a   despatch     dated  March 13 -says he has received     no  further' report of any  fi������hting     between organized bodias of troops, and  announcing  that the Japanese     are  making .   reconnaisances.       In a despatch filed the-previous day the Russian commander-in-chief notified   the  Emperor that Gsneral Meyendorff fell  from his horse on March 1 and fractured his collar bone. Ho was taken  to Harbin and his early recovery   is  hoped for.  REPORT DENIED.

Yinkow  March 14 .���������From noon until darkness  on      Wednesday  the  left column of  General Oku's army fought a desperate fight seven miles north of      the  Hun river and five miles west of the  railway. The Russian forces outnumbered the Japanese three to one. The  Russians, who had  been heavily reinforced from the south,  rushed out  of their trenches to     meet the advancing Japanese,  and a fierce hand  to hand fight ensued, the soldiers using  their bayonets  and* the officers  their swords.   The-Russian casualties 'were over ten  thousand killed  and wounded  and;, the Japanese      a  little over three thousand. The Russian dead were left; on the field   in  heaps,  among   (hem many  staff officers.   Last night part of the extreme  left army     reached the railway between Mukden  and  Tie Pass,     destroying it and  thereby prevaenting  the trains from running north.   The  DIED AT  MONTE CARLO  (Associated Press Despatches.)  Monte Carlo,  March  14.���������The Marquis      of  Angesey    died  here  today.  The     Marquis  was   notable   through  his  personal  and   financial eccentricities.     His      wife   arrived  here   two  days  ago  and  was reconciled     with  her      husband  at  his  deathbed.

The loss is two hundred  thousand dollars.  POISONING IS AN  UNDOUBTED FACT  (Associated Press Despatches.)  Honolulu, March 14.���������The Advertiser prints an intarview with Dr. Wood  who     performed the autopsy on the  body of Mrs.   Stanford.   He says the  presence of strychnine in  the bottle  of* bicarbonate of soda refutes all  of  the theories  of natural death.     The  strychnine was     a foreign substance,  and     did not belong to the preparation of bicarbonate.    Dr.- Wood     declares that the poison, was thoroughly   mixed   with* tho  bicarbonate     of  soda by some 0113 who was familiar  with the strength of and effect     of  strychnine, but he does not say that  the strychnine was placed in the battle with  murderous  intent.    Regarding th3 efforts  to account for symptoms on the theory of natural death  he said  that  he cab   mate  the ante-  mortem symptoms     or pcst-iroitem  signs apply to prove that death   was  due to many causes.  . o  Mr. George Hannay was unfortunate enough 1 to break his ankle and  tear his leg rather badly this morning. Mr. Hannay was at work helping to-clear the sport grounds at ths  Pilot hotel. He .had felled a tree and  was standing on the stump a few feet  from the ground, measuring the fallen timber, when he slipped and fell,  sustaining the injuries mentioned  above. '  CHANGES BEING MADE  IN THE COAL MINES  IVfen^Wiu Now   Have   Steady  Work and the Amount Earned  Will be No Less Than Before  MOVING   PICTURES.  The following extract from the  press indicate that the exhibition to  he gfven next Monday night at the  opera house will be well worth seeing:  Monday evening the  theatre     was  packed,  even slandii'g room bain:* at  a premium,     to see  Miller's   motion  photography.    The entertainment was  an  improvement to anything of "the  kind ever shown here.   There-was not  one among the  large crowd  nresent  but what left the theatre well irlftas-  ed for the time ancl money spenyt ���������  Republic Record.  Naturally, much interest has been aroused in Ladysmith over  the changes that have been and are taking place inthe Extension  Mines; much speculation as to the why and wherefore of the laying-* off. of .men ami" what the changes signified, has. been indulged  in. So far The Ledger has refrained from saying anything about  it,, as it is better in a case li ke the present one to say nothing,  than   to  publish  wild    rumors  and  incorrect information.  Today Mr.   Andrew  Bryde 11, superintendent     of the Wellington  Colliery   Company's   mines   was seen at his home, land kindly gave  us   the  following  information.     Coming as  it  does,  it is  absolute,  and  will  be received  by all  residents of Ladysmith, miners,     and  business  men .as very satisfac tory:  Until  within  the past few days,   there has been 425 miners   at  work  in   the  mines  and about   400  pushers,  drivers,  etc.,  working  in all about S25  men, exclusively  white  labor.     It is   the  intention  of the company  from  thi s   time   On,   to do   the  principal part  of   the  mining  with  one shift    which will  go on the regular  hours  as   before,  a second   shift  will    work  but only a few men.     If,     as  vas  the case last season,  an d Mr.  Bryden can see no reason why  this should  not lie the case again,  the demand  for coal is such as  to warrant it, more men  will   be added to the small shift.       Not  more  than   200 "men   will     belaid    off   in    all,    and     from     these  some  will  be  ana in  given     a   place as soon as room is made   for  them.    Mil   Bryden  says   that   the  pay-roll  of   the  mine will    not  be   lessened���������it  will  simply  mean   that  there will    be   work every  clay  for   those  who are in the   employ  of the company.  As to the future of Ladysinith, Mr. Bryden speaks very favorably. With the extensive coal, deposits, the best on the Pacific Coast, lying between Extension and Ladysmith,'he looks for  continuous coal mining for a long period of time in these mines.  They can be worked and the output sold if any mines can be  worked in the West. Ladysmith will, he prophesies, and before  many years, be a little city of seven or eight thousand people.  Mr. Bryden gave some information about the work that has  been done near Nanaimo Riv-er, just where the new line crosses,  a drift is now in there some 900 feet, and a good body of coal  has been struck, lie expects the mines of Ilaslam Creek ami  this side of Extension, which will be opebed up soon will prove  .���������ven butler and more econom ical to mine than those at Extension, as the measures sirs reg ular and lay more nearly horizontal  than  do   those  at   Extension.  Mr.   Bryden  expressed  reg ret .that he was  obliged to let some  of  the men go  that  were not   required, but thinks it much better  that  the  same  output be  made  and   the  same  amount  of  money  earned   by   a less   number   of   men working steadily.  Mr. Bryden commended the. course of The Ledger in securing  facets to publish, instead of publishing rumors, always more or  less  unreliable. 4  Russions  are today retiring in large  bodies along the main highways.   A  large Japanese force is holding   the  main road  to  cut the Russian     retreat.    It was  fortunate  that  more  of the army was across tne railway  last  night,  as  it  probably changed  the outcome of the battle.   Without  the railway the Russians cannot remove their wounded nor their heavy  guns, which  will  probably  fall   into  the hands of the Japanese.  The Russians in.the centre near the railway,  .begaii  retreating  a,1   midnight.      The  Japanese  pursued  briskly,  capturing  a few heavy guns and  machine guns.  The right wing of General Oku's army   is   today attacking   Sufatun  station,  ten      miles     south of Mukden.  The station is  well  fortified     with  heavy   works  whicli  were stubbornly  defended,    lt was the centre of operations against the villages north and  west of the railway, line where the  -Russians   have   strong   works,   which  were  gallantly  defended.    The  Japanese at  noon  occupied   the  villages  oh    the     main highway,  five milos  south of Mukden, continuing     their  pursuit of the Russians, who hastily  retired towards  the north.

If me- mass of people  should declaie  itself  against the  continuance  of   (he   war.     Dining    a  recent visit  to Poland high Russian'  officials,     including  Baron     Yolkon,  chief of the Warsaw police, who said  that mobilization on a large scale in  the     present temper of the Kussian  people  was  out of the question.    As  the  military   authorities   themselves  estimate: the number of men required  to form a new Manchurian army   at  half a million,  any  attempt to mobilize   this   number   will   undoubtedly  lead  to a most serious disorder, and  one which would still, further complicate the critical  state of affairs    in  the interior of Russia.  ALEXANDERS VI  SIT TO LISBON  London,   March   1-1.���������Queen   Alexandria,      Princess Victoria and Prince  and     Princess    Charles of Dnemark,  started today for Lisbon to visit the  King  and  Queen  of  Portugal.      The  trip is  largely far the benefit of the  health of Princess Victoria, who was  recently operated upon for appendicitis.   Sir Frederick Treves, surgeon in.  ordinary    to  the King, accompanied  ���������the party.  King Edward ancl the Prince and  Princess of Wales were at the railway station to bid farewell to the  royal travellc-*s, who embarked on  the royal yach I Victoria and Albert  at Portsmouth.  |fc:  -If  aia-t i$;>fi?~ BH  hhbhe  JMJJ...t-  tsst.

Among   the world's people aie many    fatalist's,  those who believe that  whatever occurs through the jouiney  of life is   fore-ordained.   As thc  Ai-  abs say,   it  is      '''Kismet."   The  fallacy of this     belief is easily shown,  for not a   clay passes over our heads  but  that things occur, and frequently  of serious     moment,     that wc, ourselves,  decide absolutely.   It may  be  for the best or it may not so prove,  but il   is  not   fore-oidained.   Gi\en  a  will and  a ecilainaiiioiint of inhcienl  abilily      we    may     exercise gifts of  tnowledi'C' in our own way, and when  cum* wd do wisely it is the result of  del i hei.11 ion of a moie or less period  ol      rellec tion.   Some   men are gilted  with   a 11,11 ick     wit, others act more  slowly.   The human  form  is built up  on  tins   principle and  what we term  involuntary     muscular action  is not  always     so..   For     instance a finger  touches     a hot sloVe     and  is  withdrawn, as we iua.������ think, without vol  iintary movement.   This is, however,  not     so,     for the     'moment a finger  touches   heat the nerves of sensation  telegraphs      to the   brain cen I res,  it  hurts, and  the brain centie instincts  lhe nerves and the muscles of action  lo take it     away.   All of this is instantaneous,    but  the     regular   program,    so say     our scientists,  is in  all cases     carried out.   In forming a  decision     as 1() what action we will  take in some vital matter it may be  a quick decision,    but it is not without    thoiught.   Fortunate is the man  who is so     constituted that in cases  of   emergency     he can act promptly  with judgment.  ITOBA THE NORTHWEST TERi  RITORIES AND ' THE YUKON  TERRITORY.

Kuropatkin,  more ^unfortunately situated, could  only await the unfolding oi his enemy's plans and must then meet cri-  ccs as^ they arose In his case judgment has won o\er hasty decisions.  Russia, but for the. bad judgment of  ils government, would have readilv  I'oiescen lhe' terrific struggle thati  must follow if war were d2claied.  AL the present time, even, Russia,  siulibom and unbelie\ ing, will not  give up, her Minister of Finance saying '-we can -win this war by finance." -Japan is a smaller country,  in tensely loyal, and a nation of fight  fis, but it takes money to maintain  and equip armies, and there must be  a limit to everything.  it was not fore-ordained for Japan  Lo win    this war, but they were better prepared,     initcd, and ar2 a nation    whose development has been so  marvellously      rapid    that      Russia  could     not   beiico  Japai.cse tlneats  or war     to  be earnest.   To her cost  she   lias found it earnest.   In the- interests of .humanity it is to be hoped  that     Russia has    learned its lesson  and     will make   peace, but it is not  probable  unless      internal  conditions  in Russia    force a scttlem2nt.   That  Russia    will even now use judgment  and  declare for peace is  doubtful. It  now looks    as  though her Meet must  be destroyed  before she will give up.  Quietly,     and  without tli3 knowledge  being     heralded,. lihe. Japanese naval  commander      has gotten his  fleet  together and      has g-nne on  a hunt  for  the     Russian  licet.    If he finds  them,  from   what has  happened   in   the  past  year      W2  may      safely  assume,   and  Russia    should  realize, the  fact,  that  the great      Heel,  on     paper,  but nol  great as a lighting flotilla, will  be at  The     mercy    of Japan.

Ruswia  has  made     the fatal  mistake, of going to  war    unprepared.    If only Lhe leaders  who urged  the war on  were suli'ei ing  it    would not     be so had,  but  when  battl ar:* fought and  2011,000 men, as  the.   result of a single series of  battles    finished within a week, are ly.-  jng (lead or wounded, it is too much.

If a large pari  <f it was  acquired at the expense of  he   public,  there  is,  perhaps,   some  atisfaction in knowing that its earnings will be expended in a public benefit.   So     seldom are  thc great   fortunes of   today distributed in a way  that     will  uplift      and   iinpro\e  the  world     that  the   distribution of the  Stanford millions for the good ol" education is a     notable incident in the  country's later history.  Since .Senator Stanford died, 12  years ago, -his widow has devoted  herself to the work of advancing tha  interests of the unheisity.

The republicans have nominated  for mayor John M. Harlan, a. man of  force, integrity generally high repu-_  tion and decided independence, who  has already been an unsuccessful candidate for the same office. Ho was  nominated on a platform that favored a restricted extension ot thc  present street railway franchises  with municipal ownership as the ultimate goal.  The democrats have come out in fa-  1 vor of immediate municipal ownership and have nominated Judge Edward F.

Asphalt    Company  against the sci-ucstrad'oii of its property by the government of Venezuela, has ad.'ounied to make  way    foi  the action of the Venezuclcan government agajnst the French- Cable Company.    It is albged that Mr. Prasto  lias ordered the court to render judgment annuling the contract   and    authorizing      the    hei/.uie of  thc cable  Company's      propeity.    The  go ���������.eminent has cut the coast cable east and  west  of  La  Cfuaia   to  pre\cut. communication   with   the  revolutionists,  who are aclhc at Trinidad.

At the offices  of  the French  Cable  Company  in   this  city   it   was      said  that  they had  no  iiuor-mafcion as  to  the     action begun against them  by  , Castro.    It is understood   that     for  some time the company lu.s been subjected to a good many cni'bar. ssmenis  in .
