It  .���������should     do    so. for it is .one  of the  iiest prepared for any. concert -here in  many ' 'months.

For a week a hundred  monkeys vmade life a living horroi,  and finally drove the Chinese cook,  Hoy Sing,   to suicide.

He  carelessly  left      one cu^e open on   August 13  Twenty monkeys    escaped and  undid  the fastenings to the other cages until they had  leleased  nearly  a hundred of the beasts. Hoy Sing      appeared at this juncture. ,The libcu-  ted simians scattered and pandemonium broke loose.   The ship's captain  ordered the  Chinese crew and      all  olhcers- out to try and round up'the  lunawajs,  who took to  the rigging,  and the men weie  forced to give up  the chase.  That    night     the     monkeys came  down     from aloft and  looted       Uie  ship.    They sacked  the gallery    anil  attacked "cveiy Chinese  that was not  hidden   in   a locker  oi   cabin.       Hoy  Sing,   the keeper,   was  sighted       foi  special attention.

I may here state  that  we are now en-aged  in  installing a    duplicate dynamo,  with      the  necessary  additional  power   machinery,  thus doubling the capacity.  The flat rate- to consumers prevailed for a time, hut meters were gra.  dually installed, and enough are now  being procured to place all. consumers on meter rates. The rates arc as  follows1:  For    tho first 10    kilowatts (m a  month),   17 cents  per kilowatt.  For the  next  00  kilowatts  (in    a  month)  12 ccnls pee kilowatt.  For all  above   100 kilowatts (in  a  month)   10 cents per-kilowatt.  This makes  the cost   to a consumer    rather    less   than   one cent per  hour    per    lfi    candle  power  hiinl>.  These, rates arc   likely  to be soon reduced.'  Enclosed 'ih a copy of;the engineer's  report, above referred   to.   On   page 7  you  will     find   the details of       the.  light plant.   1 also enclose a copy  of  ouig-l-ist- financial statement.      This  shows a net profit of- $1-1,000     from  the   water  and  light   plants   combined    for    the year. 190-1..  Taking the  light  plant alone,  the net profit for  the    same    year is $7,100,  to which  must  be   added   the.   public   lighting  of the city.   This, at rates charged  by  the old  Company,  would  nmbuut  to   $2,102,   thus   making a total profit on the Ught plant of $0,802.

FRIDAY,* SEPT.  15,  1905.    ...  the third" party:  News comes from Winnipeg-that-  Mr Joseph Martin, oi Vancouver, is  in the Prairie City on a political  mission���������nothing more nor less .than  the lormation'of anew Dominion political partv, to be composed"^ the  dissatisfied members of the Liberal  and Conservative parties. Canada is  not yet in a condition to furnish  new "political paities to order, as is  done in the States. The Grit and  Tory are too firmly enthroned to be  easily thrown down for the eiithus--  iastic member of his party in Cana-  ' da is ready to do'almost' anything  to advance -iis interests, except, perhaps, pay political assessments, and  as yet olhce hunters ha\c not arrived at the state of profiency "as our  neighbors across the line." So there  is no iikeuhood of a Canadian uop-  or anti-Con, anti-Lib., or any other  ahti's  branching  out.  In other words, Canada, is not yet  rich enough  in    politicians  to "form  new parties that can make a fight of  consequence." Of, the  gentleman 'first  named,   Mr.. Joseph  Martin, _if"    he  should uindeitake anything of the kind  such as cthc formation of 'a new party,  he  would  most  certainly   let his  enemies know he was' around.  As it  is,     however, it is    altogether nkciy  that Mr. Martin is in Winnipeg meet  ing  old   political  friends  and  having  a good time.   One thing may be -put  ���������down  as  certain,  while   Joe  Martin  has been badly beaten in'Vancouver"  and is by many regarded as having  passed the possible.stage, the shrewd  observer  knows  and  realizes   that   if  would  take a whole lot  of  work 'to  defeat him now in Vancouver, for he  has been for the past two year's moving  steadily  back into  popu ar  favor  in  the Terminal City.  jja A Cordial invitation is extended toy;u to be pres-   ***,  -ent~at our......

The game is perhaps the most popular  of ail outdoor games with the sportsmen of this city and this year there  is little doubt they will again make a  fine showing against the \arious  teams of the pro\ mce.-  Of the game itself,  an that need be  said is  tiiat    it is clean and fast and  gives many  opportunities  for   individual     and combined      cic\erness.   The  game of   football    will attract m the  Old  Country something plicno  mental  in tho v>-ay of     crowcis.   It is nothing  to see something,like -10,i000 people at  i-nch .of the big gates in ten cr eleven  of the large     cities at the     ordinary  league matches on a Saturday.   At a  cup  tie the crowd is      overwhelming  The games aie     generally held  m the  Cr}stai Palace,    London, Hie grounds  of winch   are  capable   of holding   1-15,  OCO people,  who can an get a good if  somewhat    distant \iew of the game.  'Plus     accommodation has jecn  taxed  time and again to the uttermost.  The spectators come from the uttermost parts,of the country, Ihoffch  pr/ncipally from flie north, and special trains are put on by all the big  trunk lines to bring them into the city and take them out again. They  are the dead game sports of the Old  Oounley. No amount of personal inconvenience can abate their ardent  admiration for Ihe-r team or, as it  proves'in many cases, the leant of  Uieir temporary adoption in crushing'  defeat will  lowei   UiDir enthusiasm.  *aa  of che players in the two halves the  auivivojs of winch must inevitably  meet m the final. To be m the easy  end-'���������that is, in the half winch contains the weaker set, is. to be favored by "the luck 0f the draw". A  cracker jack who finds himself m tins  division may v\en smile m contentment, for as he romps along m d-ii-  iiance toward the final ihe potential winners m the other division are  .tattling together with tlie fury of the  Kilkenny cats, and the survivor, v.iio  ever lie may be, is very apt to be  ovcrgoifod for the decisive match.  But 'there is nothing superstitious in  the 'eiief thai it is good to be favored by "to luck of the draw.j' IL is a  cold, hard fact  Thcie are  two   common     superstitions  regai ding  the tees;  not the tcej  nig ground pioper, but the use of the  pitch    of sand made with the fingers  from which the ball i.s played.

It is   less   trouble to place  Ihe ball on   the ready made tee than  to mould one,     but very few'yield  to  ihe  leuiptiUion    To do so means bad  luck,  and  not on*.-    player in fifty will  on tins account     use a tco left by an-  othci.  "What?" he said io himself, as he  saw ten tickets bought or. liritt an  at once and only three on Nelson,  "It's a cinch I n buy some and there  you are. I'll bet on Nelson " The  matter was a borrowing one but the  borrowing went. U he man behind the  gun was good and the bet was on.  When things couhted out the newspaper had won $12.00 and had lost  $12.50.  Now for another story about the  fight. One man. a profess!onai man  learned m the law, bet $100 against  MoO that Britt would last eighteen  rounds. As wp ail know now Nelson  got his punch n st before that eighteenth round ended and the fight was  over. Then came the dispute. The  other man was not a lawyer, but 'ie  did know the ru'es of sport. The  whole matter was left to arbitration  The elecision went against the lawyer  and the money was paul over, but to j  tins minute it is safe to say that the  lawyci is sore.  The decision could not have been  otherwise The bet was a definite  one: i. c., that Britt would last  eight ceiii rounds. As Britt was  knocked out before the eighteenth  round was over ho certainly did not  last that long.  One     man down     town had a Winchester repeating shot gun.
