Provisions are said  to     be  cheap, meat    being     sold at 20 kopecks (10 cents)  a pound.

Under the head of piovincial aid,  she per capita grant to cities of  the fust     class was     changed i  $330 to $3(50, in cities of thc second  class the grant was increased from  J..175 to V120, in cities of the third  class the giant was increased fi ������in  5>120 to SlliS.

Mr. Williams and Mr. Hawthorn-  thwaite put in a plea for more liberal assistance to the poorer rural  ilisj.ricts on  the Island.  Mr. Oliver passed a remark about  the apparent effects of Liberal anti-  school bill meetings upon thc Socialist members, arguing that upoif  ���������second reading they had supported  the bill more unreservedly than a. y  other members of the House.  This introduced ��������� an exchange of  complinwnts with reference to parliamentary ethics, and the right of  members to look after their own districts particularly, between these  gentlemen.'

Mr. Burns said,  "Lacrosse in Victoria needs reorganizing, and I understand that Rev.  W. W. Bolton, who is taking a leading part in the matter is proceeding  along that line. But does he know  anything about lacrosse? The man  who " undertakes the re-organizing  should be a lacrosse piayer, one' who  thoroughly understands the game,  and one who is a judge of lacrosse  players. Is Mr. Bolton a judge of lacrosse players? .In my opinion the  ideal man for thc position is Charlie  Cullin. - Chat lie is square, even to  his enemies."  If all plans carry that are now go-"  ing forward    the approaching season-  will see     Ian esse as firmly fixed in'  Washington's  catalogue of  sports as  is baseball,     and with its status as  an    amateur   -pastime solidly established.  Not only is there to be a local association with every feature of professionalism cut out, but it is hoped  there will be as well an international league, formed by the entrance oi  thc Seattle team into the British  Columbia league. The local association has been already incorporated, and preliminary arrangements for  admittance' into the British Columbia organization have been made.  Thc prime movers in the Seattle  organization arc H. E. Kennedy,  Councilman',, Billy Murphy, W. F.  Kennedy, of thc post-office department, Phil Servcy,, Dr. E.. M. J.  Shaw and Dr. Will Shannon. All are  lacrosse enthusiasts, and most of  them made records on this sHle of  thc line before taking up their homes  in Seattle.  Up to thc present lacrosse has  been very popular among Washington men who have a good  taste-for northern games, but its status has never been fixed. It.nas  been played along neither strict am.vL  teur nor strict professional. lines nor  has there been any regularity of  - games, exhibition events have been  pulled off from time to time under  no set management or direction.  There is still a strong faction m  which favors professional lacrosse,  and which made a fight .for professionalism when the proposition to  enter the British -Columbia league  was fust broached, but the only result of its insistence has been ' to  ccausc' those . inclined toward thc  amateur division of sportdom to  withdraw and organize the local  team which is to join hands with the  British Columbians.

In connection with the announcement that John L. Sullivan intends  taking up his home in Portland during thc Lewis and Clarke Exposition  Dr. C. W. Cornelius, who was manager for the fallen idol of the iprize  ring in thc days" of his championship'  has been , telling some good stories  to the Evening Telegram, anent the  troubles of an imprcssario with a  pugilistic star. One of his stories  has a local side���������the scene being lajd  ill Viptoria.   Dr. Cornelius saysj  "It was in Victoria that Sullivan  almost got us "into international difficulties. J ohn was a little the  worse for liquor, but having been invited by some of the people of the  city to attend a banquet he was on  hand. That was five years before he  fought a. draw with Mitchell in  Trance, but there had been a "good  deal of talk about the two men just:  the same. In some way the name of  Mitchell was brought up at the fes;  tjve bpard. It was like' shaking a  red flag in the face of a bull. Sullivan rose, and as I remember, made  the solemn assertion that we Amerr  jeans'must stand together to whip  the Englishmen. There, were breakers ahead," but we hustled Sullivan  out of the room, apologize.l lor what  was not an intentional affront, and  squared up the   deal, but there wcre  Ladysmith north  to Union,  75 miles  or more.

As  representing  this   industry It might  be mentioned that the coal shipped  from the Island, to date, amounts to  19,940,587-tons, with aval/re of $60,-  203,285,      and  149,556  tons of <o:e,  with a value of $947,780, a total of  $61,151,065.  arc  tory���������Placer mining claims generally  for   are 100 ft. square,       entry fec$5, renewable yearly.

It is not easy to find a  section     of country that is exactly  right in all respects. It, is, perhaps,  impossible to find such a country, but  for     a fair chance to make a home  with  comfortable surroundings     the  section of country along the line of  the'Esquimalt and Nanaimp' Raifway  Js'wejl worth considering.   A few of  the  most   prominentj  of the  island's  productions  and     natural  resources  only are mentioned in this article,  r-O���������  Coal Deposits  (a.)   First among the natural    resources are the great coal measures  of Vancouver Island,  extending from  Mining.-  In connection with the mineral developments of the Island, it must be  understood that, only during the past  five years has any attempt at me|al  mining been made on a Iargfi scale.  On the West coast"of the Island, beginning at East Sopk," mineral " has  been found and small - shipments  made from San Juan, Port Renfrew,  Alberni, Uchueklesit, Clayoquoit,  ^Kennedy .- Lake;" Taferno Inlet, (Deer  !eifieelt)V^Bedweel_Sound,-: (Bear River), Trout River, Clayoquoit Sound,  Sidney, Inlet, Ahousett, Ahatlasett,  Nootka, Kyuquot and Quatsino,  while .in the middle of the Island at  Central lake a large deposit of min:  eral. has recently been discovered!  The sch'ist beds lying "to" the sputh  of tlie coal measures and commonly  known as the Mt, Sicker schist- belt,  extends from ;Mt, ; Sickpr up o to the  Namiimo Lake's" which has been opened and.worked at, seven,points, . a  distance of 40 miles: Namely, Mt.  Sicker, Mt. Brenton, Chemainus; Ma-  juba, Rhinchardt, Nanaimo Lakes,  and Englishmans River. Owing' to  the fact that thc land is heavily  timbered, prospecting is necessarily  slow and expensive, great importance must he attached to the cuj;-  |,ing of j4:ajls inland 'f,i-oir( the ra'^lr  rqjid. "As (he. rc'sujt; of supli a trail,  tlivee years ago, from.. Ladjsmith fi  pjilPS put, several, mmeyal locations  liave been made in that vicinity, including the Maiuba, and extending  west to the Rhinchardt and Nanai-  Lakes property. It would' appeal'  to be of the first importance to cut  trails in order to open up the country to the prospector! - The opening  up of this mineral belt and ��������� the development of the mineral claims will  follow the construction of. a. bran6\\  road) ajid the" route ''from. ''Mt. SjckeV  apd_"Mt!

Lakes properties have large showings of ore and would undoubtedly  make producing mines  with railroad  stock raising is becoming a marked  feature in Island development. High  grades; of cattle are being raised  from inported stock, and the butter  and cheese of Vancouver Island is  now" well known for'its high grade.  / Hunting and Fishing.  The big game of Vancouver Island  has not been hunted extensively and  is. abundant in certain sections. Deer  and other four-footed game is found  in all parts of the-Island. Ducks,  geese,. - pheasants, grouse and quail  are to be found in season in. numbers that gladden the heart of the  hunter.- With the development that  will result from' the extension of  the .lines of the E. & N. Railway,  North Vancouver Island will increase  its wealth many fold. Mines wil.1 be  opened and other natural sources of  wealth now valueless, will, with  transportation, soon prove to the  world that as a whole there is no  other part of the rich Province of  British Columbia that can equal  Vancouver Island.

EVERYBODY      VILL  Thc management of the Duncans  Agricultural Association intend making a special effort to have theii fall  exhibition eclipse all others m point  ol attractiveness this year. It is  felt, that an Island show, such as is  given at Dunums, cm this year l.e  made a very special success, and  fanners and meichants .will be asked  to join hands, with.
