In  they   , went and  picked up     a bill ot  fare,' upon' which was inscribed along  list of     delicacies.     Bearing in mind  Kg that -two-bits- per meal was the price,  v^i* the boys took     their choice and par-  jpj took of various dishes.

However, "once  K^ caught,  twice  shy," and for the rc-  lp maiiuler of the time the boys had the  ���������'������������������< best  spor  (';'��������� best of good times. They describe  >f> the sportsmen of the American city  ji,! as being mesfc hospitable. They'd, threw their clubs open to the visitors  ���������fc;- and neglected nothing that would  Kii pro-mote their comfort and make  fi then  :ng and hard-working, but to������ light  and had defective combination. Is  the match committee of the Portlands to blame for the selection of  players, or has it approached .the  best players in Portland and have  these players refused to come forward? Something, has got lo be don������  right now to prevent the .Ladysmiths  b.a\ ing too much of a "cinch,',' in capturing that gold medal. The rohhcr  Canadian team from Victoria had no  dithculty in capturing the cricket medal from' Portland, and the Canadians  from Ladysmith ought to have the  fight of their lives in carrying off the  football medal.  In the Portland t-jam Dyment "cannot be improved upon for goal, but  the back division is too light. It  cannot succeed in playing Association  Football against strong, well-set opponents. In the next game ihe lightest of tho Portlands ought to be replaced by: C. A. Stewart, Jennings,  Porter, Alec Young, '.'ohnLatta, Ja-  go and 1\ H. Gifford. If these men  arc in town the match committee  ought to ask them to play; and there  ought to be no false, pride about it.  There arc also other footballers, in  town, in" case these players are otherwise engaged. A sailor's eleven,  with shore help, arc more than willing to tackle the l-adysmith team,  and particulars can be had'of Rev.  A. E.-.Hern-ays, chaplain of ;,the Seamen's  Institute.- .    j  The Ladysmiths    did not play their  complete     team,     and    in their  next  game     win  present their two regular  fullbacks..       O'Conncii  and  rergusen  did well,     however.     Adam, Graham  and Sanderson were the visitors stars  Sanderson,    who   weighs   173   pounds,  is one of the     best i roportioned athletes  on the     field.    -'Whiskers," McMillan is     a steady, skillful player.  The Ladysm:th team is a ptrong one,  hut an.'amalgamated. Pn'Ktland   team,  believing  that the.best.way to   deal  with a man "dribbling the ban  i,s either     to la)-*    the man or the baa,  ought, to take caro of them-     In other  words,   do  not   play lawn  tennis,  but  Association-Football,   with    the  checking  feature       as  His known  i������  Canada.  The 'above  aavjunfs  of   the  match  with      Portland would indicate that  the best players  the city could  put  up  were  not  matched  against      the  Ladysmith     team, and  consequently  the  victory   was   an easy  on^.   This,  however,  was not the case with  the  game on the following day, when the  rsritish   Columbians  wore  up  against  the  Oregoniaus.    Thc good people of  1'ortl'ah'd  had shown indifference     in  the   preceding  matches,   but in    this  one   they  turned   out in  crowds,  and  saw   a rattling   good   game.    In   the  A FATAL  ACCIDENT  Mr. W. J. Edmonds, the victim of  the accident detailed below, was the  cousin of Mrs. J. Bland, who last  week went down to Victoria rto attain! the funeral of her father,. John  Crather:  William .James Edmonds, 20 years  of age,   son      of William   Edmonds,  pressman of  the Colonist,   was crushed to death  Saturday  morning,  after  c.ty jossisscs. What was  the  matter^"g caught  in  thc  whirling belting  with  vesicular team'    It was win-   at the   Br itish-American Paint -Works  of W.  J. Pendiay, on Humboldt st.  Edmonds  was superintending    the  mixing  machine, and al 7.30 a.ni'. be  pushed     the belting onto thc pulley  attached to tlie rapidly mov^ig shafting,   lie  was alcne in tiie ro^'m  at,  the time.   A few moments later    the  attention     of  the engineer  was  attracted . by the stoppage of  the   machinery,  and, running into the room,  he saw Edmonds jammed between the  ceiling and the upper pulley, entangled  in the belting,   which  was about  his neck.  The   unfortunate  young   man    had  been caught  iu  thc belting and whirled upward to  thecfeiling with force,  his     body being badly crushed as a  result.    His  legs were broken,     his  left side mangled - and torn,  and other injuries caused.  The engineer called other employees aftcr 'stopping thc machinery, and  the young- man was extricated, still  conscioU'S. 'Doctors- Fraser, Duncan  and Holden were summoned, but  medical skill could ; av/Jl nothing.  Edmonds died ..about two hours afterwards at St. Joseph's hospital,  whither  hc had been removed.  An  iiuquest was held yesterday afternoon ,-' at  whicii  a verdict of  accidental  death  was brought  in by the  jury. ��������� The engineer  gave evidence regarding-  the  circumstances   of the fatality, and Mr.   Pehdray,  proprietor,  testified,   He  said  EdnionHls had always *been considered  a careful    employee.  GAYNOR AND GREEN  GET BACK HOME  The City Will be Placed on  Victoria^ Westminster  Route  the  A   Vancouver despatch   dated  Sat-   i ver on Sunday night at 11.30 o'clock  A despatch from Montreal says: immediately tfWthc Roiiavcnture sta-  Thc last chapiter, so far as Canada is I'011' whc!rc the Pris������������ers atc l'rcak'-  conjerned   in  the  ceicbra^eii" Gaynor  unlay, Oct.   7th, says:  Uifh (he close of the present  month there- will occur a number of  radical alterations in the routes of  ninny of the C.P.R. coasting steam'-  ( ers, the latest information being  that the steamer Charmer may, in  November, be placekl on the run between Victoria and Nanaimo, and  the  steamer   City   of Nanaimo,  now  and Greene case was closed today,  wIimi the two men started for , the  United States. A large crowd tt'as  al the depot to see them off, but  the most notable thing about the departure was the large number of  United States .secret service men who  were around. They were in charge  of \V. J. I'lyiiin, head of the secret  service bureau, of New York.  On behall of the Dominion government, Silas II. Carpenter, chief of  th:; Montreal detective force, who  kidnapped the two men from Quebec,  and Inspector AlcMahon went with  the jiarlyas far-a-s Rouse's Point, N.  fast  in the  station dining room.

At 8.-'JO the prisoners went to the  train. First came Greene, jiccompan  ird by United States Detective White  irid Inspector MclMahon, and next  Gaynor, accompanied by Unite*! States Detective Boyd and Chief .Carpenter. Around these two smaller  groups, the other secret'service men,  rallied until  thc  train  was  reached.  Thc prisoners went into the smoking compartment  with  Chief Carpon-  for Victoria.  As  the steamer Princess Victoria  is to be pulled oil the  triangular run  between Vancoiuer and Victoria and  Seattle on or about Oct. 15, it is;  probable that the steamer Charmer  [will after that date be operated between Vancouver and Victoria/ till  early in November, and that the  steamer Princess Victoria will be on  the  Victoria-Seattle route  till  early  on that route,  will  be transferred to [ in   November.    By  tliat time    ( the  Y., the "boundary line between Rouses | ter,    .Chief Flynn and "Messrs. l'Soyd  Point (and. La  Cnlle,   Canada.  Thc prisoners had been notified  tliat they probably would be removed this morning, and were ready  when Detective Boyd, of the United  States secret service, called for  them iii the debtor's ward. The United   States officers came  with three  and  White.       When asked if they hud  anything to  say,   Col. Gaynor  replied   that  they were glad   to  go back  at last, and that  they would     have  notl ing.but  the kindest .remembrance  of their treatment in Canada.     Col.  Gay nor's   daughter-iii-law  wns |     on  U>ard the  train   when  the   prisoners  cabs and  the  party  left   the jail     a    arrived, and  bis  son arrived  at    the  little     after  7   o'clock.

This fire broke out about I o'clock-  in. the morning,   and  destroyed   $-10,-  000  worth of property.   Mrs. McDonald   had   the building leased.   She had  the  contents  insured for   $1,100. Many witnesses     were, examined during  the      inquiry,   which   lasted  a whole  week.      Some of the boarders     had  bce-ii ������-.)ld   byv*lrs.  McDonald  at the  time  of  thc preceding fire   that     11'  next   would   be  nearer home.     This  was  s tat ml   more   than  nice in      the  l'.-rm  of a prediction, saying  that her  There is at present jn .ooiinty court  in West Kootenay. That institution  ended at midnight last Saturday, and  recognition of the fact was made by  His Honor, Judge Forin, on Monday  inornijig.  The point was raised absolutely  without warn;'iig. It came on the  judge 111 c a bolt out oi" the blue, and  hy an edd coincidence the bolt was  launched by the judge's brother, P.  McL.   Forin.  As      usual,  on  Monday   m'irnings,  says  the. Nelson News,   in reporting  the  incident,   there was  a fair list of  applications to be argued  in chamber  and several members of the local bar  were present.   When the first motion  on   the list  was called,  an  ex-par tc  -application. P.. McL. .Forin,  in whose  name  it stood,  rose to. address  the  court-.   He explained .that as the ap  plication he   wished  to  make was  c  some importance and .he did not wis"  to have it set aside on appeal.'    He  must  first  ask a ruling   on  a preliminary   objection  he   felt   forced       to  raise.  To, the. great surprise of every mem  her of the small  audience,  Mr. Forin  dividing  the county of .Kootenay  for  judicial   purposes  into  the  two    new  counties   of   East. and  West   Kootenay, and  coming into effect  on October 1st, the county court of      the  county  of Kootenay was  abolished.  This  being so,   His  Honcir,      Judge  F-c-r/n,   who   holds  commission      as  ckunty judge of the county of Kootenay, has no jurisdiction  in "either  of  the new  counties.  His Honor     gravely read over tlie  terms   of  the.ckder-in-courici 1, '��������� deliberated  a few  minutes,  and   then  sustained   tlie  objection.    Tlie   proceedings  came to  a sudden' termination.  There was' no  object in  making  applications     for  orders  from   a judge  who    'ruled that he had no jurisdiction!.   As  Judge Forin's commission  as judge   of the  supreme court       is  worded in the definition of the geographical  limits  of his  jurisdiction,  in precisely the .same way as his com-  misslPn   as county Court judge, there  arises      a,presumption      that orders  made      in regard   to  supreme   court  matters      are  invalid,  and  that his  su-  then submitted that by the order-K'.r-   jurisdiction as a judge <i the  council  of. the provincial  government   preme court is also abolished.

There is some ta'k  about pnvatcYoinpanies^ccurir.g a  charter and , putting in a plant. No  doubt, should a properly construdtou  company make application for a charter their application, since the- voters  have refused . to install a municipal  plant, would be listened to and considered, but the unfortunate fact. that,  there is no ��������� money in tlie treasury  with winch to ray for sjreet lighting  and Uic Council would find it very  difficult to find such lig-hting fund, livery much against any private company putt.ng in a plant at this time.  There are plans galore talked, and at  least a dozen schemes are suggested  fot installing a plant,, but the public  gcneiaiiy win not take any of them  seriously at this time. What the  Council may decide to do at some future time remains to be seen, there  is not much to encourage them ia  going ahead with further plans.

'������������������-��������������������������������� -���������"  THE LOVE OF SNAKES  FOR' CHILDREN.  I have  found that children  in   the  bush show very little fear  of snakes.  The bigger the. snake, the greater the  joy of getting near "it ��������� and the strong  cr  the desire to play with  it.       The  snake's  bright eyes  and sinuous-motion   probably   charm.    And   snakes,  even     the mast -.." vicious.-..respect.- the  confidence,  says   Chambers'   Journal.  I   have known  numbers  of cases     in  which they return it with what must  be called    affection.       A snake lhat  will     wriegle  away  from   an adult,  will     placidly  survey a child      and  wail   for encouragement  to   approach.  Here     is an instance to my hand.  Wc all 1-new there was  a snake-    in  the  house.    Glimpses   of-it had been  caught  on   three  separate   occasions,  but it was too swift in getting under  cover.   Bush houses in  Australia arc  roughly  put together,  and  odds  and  ends of     various     sorts arc nttc-ral  about with occasional  heavy articles  against the walls.

(Continued    from Page Two)  vy thing's is somewhat dangerous unless the. light is good and an experienced bushman he of the party. The  usual plan is to waleh a ul wait. The  sides of the cottage were built of  round timber, and there was a likelihood en each occasion that this  particular snake had wriggled throii  gh and out.  M-Jinie,  a child of three, was more  \ivacious   Ihayii   usual   next   morning.  She sat  on an opossum rug  oa    the  floor of the room adjoining; the break,  fast room,   where most of the family  weie collected.    Her   chattering   ex-  citcid   comment.   "Stay,"   whispered  her   father,   "something  strikes  me.  She's talking to something, and I bet  it's flie snake."  With  his liding whip in  his hand,  he stepped softly  to  the open  doc r  an 1     peeped in.   The snake had  its  ncad  in  Minnie's lap  and   was being  fed   with     ii I Lie snips     oil a square  lump of sugar.  It was  a black snake of a dangerous sj/e,  and  the father was  doubtful  how to act.    If alarmed  it mi^lit  viciously   attack   1 hc   child.    He  sm-  vejed   tlie possible means of  wi;u,  and     whispered   to  his wife  to   call  Minnie.   The  child  moved  at   the call  and  the snake  drew  back  and   are'.'-  a sudden     dive      toward  a chest  of  drawers   at  the opposite  wall.   That  was what  was  wanted, and the riding whip did  thc rest.  A friend of mine tells of an incident of a similar kind. At Koon-  drook, a little settlement in Victoria, a woman heard her child, 18  months old, laughing as if she were  having , great fun. The child iwa-s  supposed to be asleep in bed. Tho  mother went to the room and found  thc child scrambling over the bed af-  lei' something she could nnt  see.  That happened several times. Once " head of a snake, similar in color to  however, the mother wrnt in sud- * (i,e withered; grass.'

The pupils of the  the bed she distinctly saw a large child's eyes; were* dilated, but iiclh-Ji  snake that turned upon her with evi- er respects it was half asleep.

Mr.  Evans had  been afflicted with a trouble for years,  resulting in. acites,  or  dropsy.   Ue had  been   operated     on  once a week,   (tapped)  and from six  to  12 quarts of fluid drawn oft* each  timc for about four years.  After be.  ing operated on lie would be well en-  .oug'h  to   be around the  ranch - doing  work-,   but   gradually   increased       in  weight.  ,He was   for years  a partner of  J.  C.  Barnes     and  together in    early  years they  hade  many  opportunities  to make  money.    But  Harbes claimed   Evans   was   a poor _nianagcr.  "Why,"  said he,  "if  Evans was to  start around   the  world  and pick  up  a ?20 gold  piece every yard,,he'd get  aiome  in   debt."      Nevertheless,  Mr.  Evans left his  fami,y  well provided  for.  Speaking of J. C. Barnes, he was  quite a philosopher in his way. During a coiiiversatioli with one of his  Aslicr' ift .neighbors, who insisted (hat  $100,000 was enough money for any,  man, and thai; hc (thc speaker).  would slop work if hc had,that amount, Barnes said:  "Billy,   you're  just  like mc,  and if  I had every dollar in tlie world except one,  I'd risk the whole business  trying- to get that onc."
