As  the wroter states  that he is in his  82nd year, he seems to have     made  some strong points.    Of course Professor  Osier  was  not at all  serious  in suggesting men of 60 etc., but his  lecture in which this language is used has created wide-spread comment  and .criticism^,   for  naturally  every  man above forty feels that he    has  been personally assailed.  The article  reads as follows:  In the Boston Record of Feb: 24th  we found a picture of. ourself, and a  statement that Dr. William Osier, a  medical professor  in Johns  Hopkins  University,  Baltimore,  thinks     that  all men (and wc suppose all women)  above  forty   are   practically  useless,  and  that all above sixty are so utterly  worthless  that they should be  chlorofoimed   and   the  earth  rid  of  them,  and in  our morning paper   of  Feb.  25th  we  find  a picture of  this  Dr. Osier.  Whether the doctor derived his impressions from the  lives of his own  father,   grandfather,   uncles  and     so  forth,  we do not know.   When     the  celebrated  Dr.   Johnson   proposed   to  marry  the widow  Thrale,  and     she  said that    she could not marry him  because one  of her  uncles  had  been  hung, he replied  that it was a matter of no consequence,  for while he  did not know that anv of his uncles  had     been     hung,  several of  them  ought to have been.    Whether     the  doctor  would  propose  to  have  a laboratory established  in  Johns  Hopkins    for chloroforming all the men  and women of Baltimore above six-  ty> and whether he would enjoy   the  sport of chloroforming them as much  as the Kaiser Wilhelm does  thc shoot  ing of tame deer and other harmless  creatures we do not know.   Cardinal-  Gibbons   being   past  seventy   would,  we suppose, be one of the first to be  chloroformed.  It is an old proverb, "Old men for  NAVAL MOVEMENTS.

London, Mar. 25.���������Dr. Fr-idtjoff Na-  sen,   the  Arctic exiilorer,   is   making  a short stay in  London,   to   discuss  scientific   matters    with  the     Royal  Geographical    Society.     Upon  being  interviewed on the -difficulty between  Norway ami Sweden,   'he   said     that  the situation  was graver  than   generally  understood  abroad  and .   that  there was a      very serious     danger  to the union if Sweden persisted   in  refusing Norway's undisputed  rights.  Then, -according to the history of the  ���������dispute in'   detail,  Dr.  Nansen     said  that   the   consular   question   involved  a test as  to    whether' Sweden     was  prepared  honestly  and  honorably    to  carry  out   the  treaty of union  or  if  Norway      was     to   become  a    mere  Swedish  dependency.     Owing  to   the  fact  that     Sweden  is  protectionist,  and  Norway free     trading and     because  of  Norway's      more extensive  sea trade and other divergencies    of  commercial interest,  Dr. Nansen said  it was absolutely essential for   Norway to have her own consular    service,  but since Sweden's breach      of  faith  and  her failure  to carry      out  the agrccnwnt on  the subject of the  Logerheim   Committee in   1902,  Norwegians  were reluctantly  driven     to  the conclusion that it is useless   to  enter into further negotiations.

An apology and  a cup of voldka and the Scott went  back  and  patched  up   the   wreck  of  the acetylene plant and .iow tha machine i.s giving forth light as though  it had     never been used us a bomb  with which to     store acetylene gas  and commit murder.  The moral is plain: Don't, even if  it is empty, put a light or a hot iron  to an acctyleiis gns tank, for there  may yet be enough gas stored in it  to cause a great dislarba������ce.  get head for tnis  DEAF MUTES  QUARREL  On the Police chargebook in Vancouver, there was a record yesterday.  morning of a quarrel between two  deaf and dumb persons. The quarrel was so violent as to attract the  attention of a policeman, who arrested the two, and took them to  the police station. Just how he  heard what they were saying and  was therefore convinced that it was  really a quarrel and not a political  discussion or a lesson in jiu-itsu,  the policeman does not explain. The  report closes with the intimation  that when they were taken to the  policeJstation the men wrote on a  piece of paper that they would be  good if they were allowed to leave  town and this was considered the  best course to pursue in regard to  them.

While the precise nature of the negotiations cannot be learned at this  trrhe,' it is- understood that it-contemplates the placing of the fiscal affairs of the Island government, so far  as  ulie collection of rsvenues is concerned, in the hands of a commissioner to     be    designated by President  Roosevelt,  with the consent of   the  Dominican  government.   o   NEW TURBINE  VESSEL  Port  Dalhousie,   Ont.,   March  25.���������  Steamer Lakeside, which, during the New York, March 25-A London de-  summer,   plies  between  Toronto and spatch (iate(1 Saturday ������o the Herald  Port  Dalhousie,  lies     sunk at    her upoil tl;c Ww Tui.billc vcysel, Victor-  moorings.

SUNDAY OBSERVANCE.  The letter published in yesterday'*,  '    Ledger, signed     "ALove* of Men,"  has'aroused  some  discussion  among  people who  arc  and some who    a.e  -     not, in sympathy with the sentiments  of the writer.  ���������As times go on,  the views of people become     more liberal in-,   many  lines  and things  arc now not     only  tolerated,   but  encouraged . by    those  professing Christianity  that only     a  few years since were entirely prohib-  ited.     Dancing,  playing cards,     and  ���������-"������������������: many  other  games  and amusements,  are now allowed by some at   least,  of'the ������������������orthodox churches. Even Sunday games 'of baseball, lacrosse, football, and other athletic sports     aic  now not altogether under the baa oi  '���������".-. all churches.

Times     am'  creeds  arc changing.     Last year, foi  instance,  in  Vancouver,  a Mr.     Du  .'-.'.gan,.,well''known, in .Ladysmith,    an''  -.-..piie who had been a successful teach  'cr in the city  school's,  a-moral   and  ^���������ccspeetor.man.'was elected a school  trustee     After  the election, and  nl  ������������������������������������ -the  first meeting,; Mr/ Dugan.asked  tlie members of     the school    boaid  to change the night'of meeting from  Friday to some other night tin ougli-  out the week, as his Sabbath, ho ln-  .-������������������iiig.ah.-A-dventist, began   on    Frid-u  ���������night-at sundown and ended on  Sail  unlay at sundown, durii-g these houi.-  ���������he could do no work.  The board,  however,     refused     to  ' consider     his   conscience,     and  still  hold  their  weekly  meetings  on   Frill ay night.    Mr.  Dugan attends,  but  under protest.  Celebrated teachers    and ministcis  are     now     conceding   that  Sunday  games     may  be  played  by    church  members     -without incurring    chinch  penalties.     In fact it is  now recognized  among  intelligent people    thai  all men are born equal,  and that no  man should     be interfered with     in  his pursuit of happiness. This means  strictly,  that if a man believes  it is  his duty to attend a church on    il e  Sabbath day,  no  man nas any n^n  legal,  moral  or otherwise,  to     prevent him.    He must not be disun lied in his     right of  worship.     11   is  equally true that if a man wishes lo  go fishing orr the Sabbath day,  or a  lot of boys  wish to meet and    ,)lav  football that they have a legal     and  ;    moral right to  do so.     They     have  no right to do these things, however,  to  in   any    way interfere  with     the  rights  of those who believe   Sunday  should be observed differently.  Sunday is the seventh day, or \:en-  crally so recognized, and is a day of  rest. Some people prefer to sleep  late, to drive out in thc country, to  pic-nic in thc woods, to go boating, or have athcr plans which they  carry out for rest. Others prefer  church services and wend their  way, some to the Methodist, some  to the Presbyterian, some to lhe  Church of England, others to the  Roman Catholic. Sissimilar teachings in many ways are given out  at the various churches, hut each attendant selects the church that :suits  him best. In this world we cannot  all think alike, and it lins come to  he realized that you cannot make  abiding laws that will insure church  attendance. Nor is il right that.'i>  should so be. All people unite in  .saying, let us have a moral law-  abiding town. As to what each  shall do on the Sabbath day en eh  one will decide for himself, for in  - this 20(.Ii century every man who  obeys flic laws of lhe. land has a  right to he the keeper of his own  conscience. Churches are schools,  and good teachings are given out,  and whether a member or not, it is  a good  place  to go.  A merchant would rather select a  young man for a clerk from among  church attendants than from among  those who .spend their Sundays in  Kirch a way that they do not advance  themselves.     So      white  in no  sense  and     good  should   be  suppoited  by   a  communi-  ' ty.     It   is  certainly  a  sign   of     ad-  '\ancemcnt   in   a community   to     see  'a church prospetous, and we, in com-  in'mon with all  other people on Ladysmith.   whether   chinch men  or    not,  with  all  chinches  success,   but      thc  'wnter  of    yesterday's  letter     takes  grounds   that can not, be  maintained  for  people  will do,  as long as    they  obey  the laws,  about, as   they    wish  with   their  spare  hours.

A girl baby,  weighing -17 J  pound.*,  at its birth ������ has been born to   the  wife of    Augustus  Steele, who     resides at < the corner of Fifth Avemu  and Baker Street, in Ballard, Wash.  Dr. 'M. L. Adams, who attended thc  mother,    weighed     the baby at    its  birth and verifies  the figures.  So far  as '{lie half dozen  Seattle physicians  of prominence who were interview I  know, that this is the. largest baby  on record.    Df. \V. P, Stewart,    of  Ballard, declares - that he had    personal knowledge of a baby born    in  Cleveland 11 years ago which weighed  174 pounds at its bieth, but   thc  child died  within a few weeks,   succumbing to the heat of the   >um :i .r.  The-Ballard baby-is healthy, and Dr.  Adams  insists its  life will  be   prolonged.       Seattle      physicians wee-  skeptical when the story "of the   big  Ballard baby  was -told them, but the  facts were too easily verified to   allow, doubt to linger long. ,One after  another the     most prominent physi.  cians of the city     declared that    so  far as their memory went the   " Ballard  record   - has not    been beaten.  .One infant- weighing  16  pounds     at  birth  was  recalled,-    but other  records fall far*below  this weight. The  Steele baby is perfectly formed, and  so far as babies go, is well muscled  rather     than fat.       Only in weight  does  the child differ  from hundreds  of other babies.  OF INTEREST TO WOMEN.  ' A strikingly' significent motto has  been adopted by an organization that  has for its object the betterment of  conditions under which women and  children labor in -factories. It is:  "Take care of your proxy." The admonition is addressed especially to  women who do not have to work.  The thought is that were "it not for  the labor of those employed in the  factories making garments the women who now live in their own quiet  homes would have to do this work.  Tlie factories have     supplanted  the  spinning V?*eeli l'eavlnS p������"pdern wives  ajid jjjpthei's with more leisure than  their grandmothers Jposs^seit_   for/  culture ana' recreation.   A'Thcse Jac-;  tory workers,'' says a Western woman to her sisters, "are your proxies,  and you are: responsible for the manner in which they do your task. You  may delegate the task to them.,   if  you will, but you should see to i;-it  that they are not compelled, to work  in unclean ��������� places  which you would  not visit, or kill themselves by long  hours over your clothes." ������������������������������������:'        -  ' There is a decided personal respond  sibiUty     hefe which must not     be  shirked,   The women of this c  have it within their  power tp effect  a  transformation  in   the conditions  which surround the einpjoyees of sp  many of the large manufacturing establishments,   It is not.difficult    tp  learn    the   conditions of one's own  community,    and   . there are means,  which will readily suggest themselves,  for bringing offending  employers  to see the evil of their ways.

RESOURCE OF YAN  COUVER ISLAND  If  Vancouver    "Island  offers as  good  chances to the farmer, prospector qV  investor as does any part? of British  Columbia.    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  tb2 Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway  is well worth considering.   A few of  the  most  prominent   of  the  island's  productions  and     natural  resor rces  ou|y are mentioned in this article.  ���������p������������������  CoaJ Deposits  (a.)   First among tlie natural    re~  gpurces are tho great coaj manures  Timber,  (b.) The value of the immense tinir  ber resources     of Vancouver Island',  v. ith its high class Douglass fir', cedar etc., has already been realized by  the great lumber companies. The Victoria Lumber Company,, of Chomainus, has among its members shrewd  Wisconsin and Michigan lumber kings  who have     secured,  and .now'hold,  hundreds of millions of feet of splendid timber and are continually     increasing  thsir holdings.   Their,    export.trade now running from 30,000,-  .100 to 50,000,000     of feet per yeac  A'ill no doubt be largely increased by  the beginning of work on thc Panama  anal, for the demand, which will' be  ...ppLcd largely from this section for  .i..:Ler to use on the great work, will  -amount to hundreds of millions     oi  feet.     Other    companies,  Shawnigah  uake, Haslam and other ��������� companies  are turning out large quantities ' of  lumber and shingles.  Harbors and Waterways.       ,  (c.)   -Harbors and waterways -;in-  connsction with  Vancouver Island -is  a subject understood much  better by  men. who "go down to sea"     than  landsmen.   But'opposite to the mainland and direct across from Vancouver,     Oyster Harbor or Ladysmith  Bay, has long been known as a safe  ������md commodious harbor.   It is    one  where large wharves are already esJ  tablished in connection with the coal  oxport trade     and with the freight  ...usincss, as the point of transfer by  the C:p.R. for the Island freight. In  jonnection  with this matter it     is  worthy of remark that for the last  ihree years the transfer barge     has  made its daily trip and has rarely,'is  ever, been delayed on account of bad  weather  or ���������" unfavorable  conditions,  and has never met with an accident.  N'anaimo     Harbor,     Departure Bay,  f Chamainus and other safe harbors are  t'ound along     the coast.   Ncar:   the"  north end of the island safe harbors  are found that may yet be used    as  last ports of call for steamers leaving Victoiia  for  the Orient," ', f������st"  brains     connecting  from  Ladysmith  landing,  or conveying to,  passengers  and mails.  Fisheries. '  The waters of Vancouver Island  teem with fish. Hsrring in vast quantities visit our shores. A profitable  trade in fisheries which includes, off  our more northern shores, halit&t and  other deep sea fish, is being built up  and is capable of much greater development.  what is known aa the reserve of the  E. & N. grant. The total value of i  the mineral product to date lor Vancouver Island and vicinity is given  by the Provincial Mineralogist, Mr.  W. F,, Robertson, as '275,322 tons of  a value of. $4,378,370.  - ���������o���������  Pottery Clay.  The clay found in the Extension  Mines is regularly shipped to Victoria to tlie, pottery works for the  manufacture of sewer pipes and pottery of various kinds\  may   be  a survey  in    the  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   ex-  baso of the' hill or bank, but not-exceeding 1,000 feet. Where steam power is used, claims 200 feet wide may  be obtained.  Dredging" in the rivers of Manitoba  and tho N.W.T., excepting the Yukon  Territory���������A free miner may obtain  only two leases of five miles each for j  a term of twenty years, renewable in  the discretion of the Minister of the  Interior.  .  Ths lessee's right is confined to the  submerged bed     or bars of the river  below low water mark, and subject  to the rights of all persons who have,  or v.ho may receive, entries for bar  idigi/ings or bench claims, except on  the Saskatclu wan   River,   where  the  j lessee may d.cpjde to high water mark  on^each alternate leasehold.

'. Of water power, some .very large  and permanent streams arc 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  on Vancouver Island. Particularly is  this the case in the northern part  of the Island.  ���������o��������� . -  Agricultural Wealth.  ' Agricultural  development on   Vancouver    Island must be very    great  in the immediate future.     Tracts of  land will each year  be cleared    and  put into    crops if railway  facilities  are" given  to certain sections     that  nOw find valuable farm lands too far  froni markets.     Included in   farming  stock raising is becoming a marked  feature in Island development.  High  grade3 of     cattle are being    raised  from inported stock, and thc 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 front  the  extension    of  the lines of the E. & N.     Railway,  North. Vancouver Island will increase  its wealth many fold.    Mines will be  opened and other natural .sources   of  wealth   -how valueless,     will, with  transportation,  soon  prove  to      the  world that as a whole there is    ho  other part of the rich Province     of  British Columbia     that can     equal  Vancouver Island.  Mining.  .-In connection with the mineral developments of the Island, it must be  understood that only"during the past  five years has any attempt lit metal  mining been made on a large scale. -  On the west coast of the Island, beginning at East Sook, mineraj has  been found and small shipments  made from San J uan, iPor-t '-Renfrew,'  Alberni, Uchueklesit, Clayoquoit,-  kennedy Lake, Tafcrno Inlet, [(Deer  Creek), Bed weel Sound, (Bear; River), Trout River, Clayoquoit S^ound,  Sidney Inlet^J. Ahousett, Ahatlasett,  Nootka, Kyuquot and Quatsinoj  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'spilth  of the coal measures and comjnpnly  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, ChcmainusJ Ma-  juba, Rhlnehardt, Nanaimo. Lakes,  and Englishmans River. Owing to  thc fact that the land is heavily  timbered, prospecting is necessarily  slow aird 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'  ji^vfi" bfen made in 'that' "vicinity, \\\-  ciuding tiip Majuba, and extending  west to t-he Rhinchardt 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  I  SYNQPSJS     OF    REQ UL ATIONS  FOR DISPOSAL OF MINERALS.

This morning's Herald, says of itself very complacently:  "The Herald was the only paper  in the Province that reported the  wreck of the barge Georgian yesterday morning.

DUGDALE IN LINE.  Bellingham papers say: According  to agreement, D. E. Dugdale arrived  irr this city last night and a conference was held with the local trustees  of (he baseball team.  "We have  decided  to pay no more  attention to the east-of.thc-mouiitaiii  cities, as far as a six-team league is  concerned,"     said   President lladley.  "We now  have  what   we belie0     is  natural league  territory.     Transportation, at a minimum, every city   in  thc league can  be  reached either  by  boat  or   (rain.    Thc   Northwest  League, such as  we have arranged,   lias  for  years   been- a hobby   of   Dugdale,  and  if  he accepts   (he   offer  we     believe'' we will   have (he best manager  Lhat can  be secured.

Ladysmith, March 2,"i  To Sporting Editor:  Dear Sir,���������In last night's issue of  jour valuable paper, I find a letter  under the head of "Sunday Aniuse-  .nenl," in which thc writer, who sign  'lim-self as the "Lover of Mm,"  -ays it is agreed that a ccrlain amount of recreation  is  necessary."  I  am  glad  to  read   lhat  part,  and  1 (,  is about     the only thing of    any  sense I- see in his letter.     We all like  sport of some kind,  and  I suppose if  is outdoor sport   our  "friend"  refer-:  10.        Now,   in     the  winter  mo.i/.is,  how are we going  to get our recrea-1 , .       ......      ,  .,,������.. c<     1 ti    Hopkins   institution  has  become.  tion  withoip playing on  .Sunday.    It  is daik al five o'clock, so to play after we come home from work is impossible. Then, again, we cannot  lay ofi work every time there is a  game, for it would be as much os  our job is worth. What then i.*> -.!.e  best, and only thing lo do? .Vhy;  play on Sunday,  of course.  If our religious friend worked in  mine he would sec how unfair his  letter reads. Again, if we are religiously inclined, we have, plenty of  time to go to church in the morning or evening and play in-the afternoon. Is it not just as well that  you  stay  on  your  own   side, of   the  dogs so rapidly that Cana/'a  care to be annixed, in  fact, we do not quite see how we  carr spare, just yet, a considerable  number or oru i.,un .mil women past  eighty.  We    believe   tha.t   thc  laigest   fees  paid  to  lawyers and phjsiciuns come  frequently   after   the   age  at   which  this  doctor  would  have their, killed.  In  a recent case a Boston  lawyer at  about seventy rereived a fee of a hundred thousand dollais for  wise y advising and securing  the settlement of,  a lawsuit   which,   in   '.he  ha ids      of  younger  lighting      men,   1- ir-ht   have  been kept in our courts for years, t.i  the great sorrow of   ;11  j allies c-on-  ceiiied.  It is often intcresjing to know the  birthplaces of great -lisco'.ereis. so  taking down our "Willi's Who in America" we find tihut Dr. Osier en ne  t j us from a small town in Canada.  Some years ago a prominent Englishman said, eithor in Pailiamcnl.  or out, that thc only 'good thing En-  glan ' ever got from Canada was the  "Canadian Boat Song," and that began with  "row,  brotheis,  icw."  This Canadian doctor seems to have  gotten  up,   through   the newspapers,  quire a  row  among  our  elderly   cc rigid much -and other elderly people by  pr.-i osing to have all men  (and     we  si.ppo.'C   women)   past  sixty   chloroformed     and  the world rid of them,  and  so has secured  for himself  (con-  trarj   to  the rules of his  profession)  a fiee,advertisement almost equal to  Lyrlia Pinkham's and which will likely stick  to him  until h    V'rsolf shall  be chloroformed at.
