He says a-the  attacks  of     the    American      press  against     Venezuela and its  government, indicate complete ignorance  of  the  facts concerning  the debts     of  Venezuela and the settlements thereof.

Editor  Ledger,  Sir,���������As  a mcmbci  of, and a regular attendant at one of  Ladysmith's   churches,   a  bclicvei   in  Divine commands and in the advancement of Christainity, I am sorry  to  see letters that  can do no good   appearing     in your columns  icgaiding  Sunday  amusements.    I  believe  that  every man must 'he thc keeper of his.  own  conscience,  and  while  I   regiet  Sa'bfcath desecration, as J consider it  to be (that is, target shooting, football, "etc.)-,I do not think it,will advance the influence of any church  to  attempt    drastic   measures,     or   to  publish   , letters condemning Sunday  ���������sports,  hut if  such  letters  must   be  published,   I would   earnestly   suggest  '  that  the writers  use only  the most  , moderate  oE language.    This  is  too  small  a place   lo have  neighbors  disagree,  and letters, unless couched  in  the     most  moderate  language, j^iJJ_  not    tend      to  make,  us   "Love  our  neighbors."    I can  only see my way  clear  to urge on  the younger generation  to give careful   attention  to  the  teachings    of      their  youth.    Where  would   your  mothers   ralhcr  see   you  spend  a portion  of  your day  or  rest,  in   the  house  of      Clod,  or   in  a barroom?      In  reading   good   literature.  or   with   a lot  of  Sabbath   violaters  at   a football   game?    Reason   it  out  without, prejudice.   Which   would   you  rather sec in the little city of Ladysmitli,  prosperous  churches,  or none-.'  All   is   not  .sunshine  in   this   world.  There     is more to do than  to pas.-;  time only.    When   can  you   best  prepare for -a future life (for few will, I.  fancv, go so far as to deny belief in  a future   life)    on   the   football   field  or in  a house  of  worship?

(By Annie Maffco, age 12, div. 2)
Frontenac,   a French   governor      of
Canada,   was  appointed in  1672.    He
was very successful in dealing ��� with
the Indians, who respected and feared liim;  but he quarrelled  with the
bishop, the intcndant and many others.    Laval wished- to stop the sale
of .firewater to the Indians, but Frontenac was too anxious for gain     to
agree     to  this.    At last,  so many
complaints     reached  the  king  that-
Frontenac was recalled in 1682. The-
Iroquois  were soon  on the  warpath
again.   Governor Denonville called a
council of their chiefs and capturing
fifty, sent them prisoners to France.
. In revenge,  the Iroquois burst ��� ��� or.
the colony, burned Lachinc'and .murdered     a thousand of the  colonists'.
To save the colony from destruction
Frontenac was again made governor
in 1689.   He brought back the Indiai-
chiefs, restored them to. their tribci'
laying thc     blame oh the  English,
prepared  lor war, .which he carried
on with gicat energy. In --eturn tht
English colonists sent an expedition
from Boston under Sir William Phips
to attack Quebec, but they, were repulsed.       The' French saw 'that  so
long as the colonies of the  two nations  were side 'by side there eould
be     no security, and no permanent
peace.    To strengthen their .position
the French, during'the time of V-v.k1
reuil,  fortified  Louisburg,  at       the
eastern side of     Cape Breton Island,
and hoped to     make it the "Key ol
the St. Lawrence."   In the valley o.r
Lake     Champlain,     along the Great
- Lakes and     in the Ohio valley, new
forts     were    built   - and   old    ones
strengthened.   During       the     thirty
years of peace     that followed Queen'
Anne's war,     Canada made   greater
progress than at     any other .time in
came out;    agriculture, and commerce
the    French     period. , Many settlers
wereiencouraged, ami there was prosperity,   Vauddreine     died     in 17 >5,
greatly    mourned     -by the colony he
had defended    and ruled so well since
1703.     -' :    i   I  I.  ,  i

(b.) The value of the immen;e timer ^resources     of Vancouver' Island,
..ith its high class Douglass fir, ce-
���ar etc., has already been realized by
iiie great lumber companies. The Vic-
oria -Lumber Company, of Chomain-

Harbors and Waterways,
(c.) * Harbors  and waterways'    in
connection  with   Vancouver Island {is
a subject understood much better by-
nieh who "go down to sea",    than
landsmen.   But opposite to the mainland and direct across from Vancouver,     Oyster Harbor or Ladysmith
Jiay, has long been known as a safe
uiid commodious harbor.   It is    one
..here large wharves are already established in connection with'the coal
jxport trade     and with the freight
.jusincss, as the point of transfer by
the C.P.R. for the Island freight'. In
johneclion with  this matter it   ~ is
worthy of remark that for the last
hree years  the transfer barge     has
made its daily trip and has rarely, is
ever, been delayed on account of bad
tveather  or     unfavorable conditions,
and has never met with an accident,
.s'anaimo     Harbor,     Departure Bay,
Ohamainus and other safe harbors are
found along     the coast.   Near   .the
north end of the island safe harbors
are found lhat may yet be used    as
last ports of call for steamers- leaving  Victoria  for  the  Orient,    -fast
trains ~   connecting  from  Ladysmith
landing, or conveying to, passengers
and mails.
The waters of Vancouver Island
teem with fish. Herring in vast quantities visit our shores. A profitable
trade in fisheries which includes, off
our more northern shores, halitat and
other deep sea fish, is being built up
and is ^capable or much greater development.  -
Pottery Clay.
The clay found .   iu the. Extension
Mines is regularly shipped to     Victoria to the pottery works for    the I
manufacture of sewer pipes and pot- ,
tery of various kinds.
Stone and Lime.
Magnificent building stone is found
at various points.,   The quarry      at
Duncan,' lying contiguous to the,   E.
& N.  railroad,  furnishes high   class
building' stone that should  be in demand where heavy stone work is required, while lime quarries also   exist on the line of the railioad.  Good
brick clay is found in Nauoose harbor above Nanaimo,  and    limestone
on the line of. the railroad, near    or
at Esquimalt Harbor.
Water Power.
Of water power,     some .very large
and permanent    streams  are     found
with' natural falls,  some again   can
without great expense  be developed.
It seems safe to assume' that great
water,   power "��� can be secured, comparatively cheap,  at various   points
bs Vancouver Island.   Particularly is
this. the case in the northern     part
of the Island.
Agricultural Wealth.
Agricultural development on
or bench, the former being 100 feet
long and extending between high and
low water mark. The latter includes
���bar diggings, but extends back to the
base of thc hill or bank, but not exceeding 1,000 feet. Where steam power is used, claims 200 feet wide may
be obtained.

lessee may d.cgde to high water mark
on each alternate leasehold.
The  lessee  shall have a dredge  in
operation within one season from the
date of  the lease for each five -.niles,
but where a person  or company   has
obtained more than one lease       one
dredge for each fifteen miles or fraction is sufficient.   Rental,  $10     per
annum for each mile of river leased.
Royalty at the rate of 2& per   cent,
collected  on  the output after it   exceeds $10,000.
Dredging in the Yukon Territory-
Six leases of five miles each may be
granted to a free miner for a term of
twenty years, also renewable.
The lessec-s right is con-fined to the
submerged  bed or bars in the   river
below low water mark, that boundary to be fixed by its position on the
lstday of August in the year   of the
abandoned,  and     open  to occupation
and entry by a,free miner.
The boundaries oi a claim may   be
defined absolutely by having a survey
made and publishing notices  in   the
Yukon official Gazette.
Petroleum���All   unappropriated   Dominion lands in Manitoba, the Northwest Territories, and within the Yukon  Teiritory,  are open to  prospecting for petroleum, and the Minister
may reserve for an individual or company having machinery on  the  land
to be prospected, arr area of 1920 acres for such period as he may decide,
the length of width shall not exceee
three times the  breadth.
Should *the prospector discover oil
in paying quantities, and satisfactorily establish such discovery, an area
not exceeding 640 acres, including the
oil well will be sold to the prospector at the rate of $1.00 per acre and
the remainder of the tract reserved
namely, 1,280 acres will he sold

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. Mirres will 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.

their confidence he seems happy.
Whether he knows anything of palmistry or not it iS'impossiblae.t'6 say,
but he certainly knows something
about     flirtation,     for   he     always

Vancouver     Island  offers  as   good
chances tp the farrrier, prospector or
Investor a6 does any part of British
Polumbia.    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, hut
for     a fair  chance. to make a home
with  comfortable  surroundings      thp
section of country along the line of
the Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway
is well worth considering.   A few of
the  most  prominent  of  the  island's
productions  and     natural  resorrpes
osly are mentioned in this article.
Coal Deposits
(a.)   First among the natural    re-
eoucces are the great coal measures
In connection with the mineral development's of the Island, it must be
understood that only during the past
five years has any attempt at metal
mining been made on a large scale:
On the west coast of the Island, beginning at East Sook, mineral has
been found and small shipments
made from San Juan,, Port [Renfrew,
Alberni, Uchueklesit, Clayoquoit;
Kennedy Lake, Taferno Inlet, (Deer
Creek), Bedweel Sound, (Bear River), Trout River, Clayoquoit Sound,
Sidney Inlet, Ahousett, Ahatlasett,
Nootka, Kyuquo-t and Quatsinp,
while in the middle of the Island at
Central, lake a large deposit of mineral has recently been discovered.
The schist beds lying to the south
of the coal measures and commonly
known as the Mt. Sicker schist belt,
extends from Mt. Sicker up to the
Nanaimo Lakes which has been opened and worked at seven points, a
distance of 40 miles: Namely, Mt.
Sicker, Mt. Brenton, Chemainus, Ma-
juba, Rhinehardt, Nanaimo Lakes,
and Englishmans River. Owing .to
the fact that the land is heavily
timbered, prospecting is necessarily
slow and expensive, great importance must be attached to the cutting of trails inland from the railroad. As the result of such a trail,
three years ago, from Ladysmith 6
miles out, several mineral locations
have been made in that vicinity, including the Majuba, and extending
west to the Rhinehardt and Nanai-
Lakes property. It would appear
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. branch
road, and the route from Mt. Sicker
and Mt, Brenton up the Chemainus
valley appears the most feasible as
it would follow along the line of the
claims mentioned to the Nanaimo
Lakes, on to and including Alberni.
It is stated that the Nanaimo
Lakes properties .have large showings of ore and. would undoubtedly
make producing mines with railroad

The following resolution passed by  thc New Westminster Gun Club and  forwarded by them to the Government may be of interest >o some of  our readers:  '���������Resolved,     that in our opinion it  is  exceedingly expedient that a moderate license   of, say, $2 be imposed'  on all persons using guns, save farmers and fanner's sons, policemen and  militia   men,     and prison oll-cers in  discharge of     their duty, or practicing at a target, and rncinb.jrs of any  organized rille club     and association  for practice   rifle   , shooting; in the  iirst  place because   it   will' diminish  the number of accidents that happen  every year by reason of minors under  sixteen  using  firearms,   and   in      the  second place it  will  form a fund  lor  the payment of game wardens, whose  salaries cmi be paid therefrom  without any extra cost to the taxpayers,  the expense falling on  those who arc  willing to pay for the same.''

It was eight o'clock      when  the anchor was weighed, and the big  ship  moved  gracefully  out  of      the  harbor.    x\t  this  time  thc  garrison  ashore kept up  a-constant play with  searchlights, and with cannons syoom-  ing signalizing an attempt on       the  part of a number of  launches  to  enter the harbor undetected. A prettier-  effect could not have been produced.  The sailing of the Pcnthesilea was  regarded  , as  a last farewell to  the  navy, at least it appeared to be celebrated as such, for no merchantman  was ever  given such an enthusiastic  parting.    From   the   time  she weighed   anchor  all   kinds   of   small  boats  danced   about  her;   skyrockets   from  the naval yard ascended;,^steam whistles from every vessel in port which  had up steam were blown;  thc crew  of  the  Shearwater and  Egcria cheered       and      amidst   the  bewildering  search lights which played over     the  ship  until she got   out  of   reach    of  the harbor, those aboard the -departing  vessel  could  be  seen   with  hats  in'    hand     responding as  best  they  could   to   the many  salutations.
