The committee which is  to pick the team' know  their   business  and  it  is their  intention  to "pick tlie  strongest  possible  team     is victorious (   as I  think -,,t  is something  worth mentioning when  we say  that   Ladysmith is  the only  town  in British Columbia being represented at  the big'fair,  and  if  the  team   is victorious   (as  I think    they  will' be) it ��������� will be one of the biggest advertisements the city. has ever had. Some of the members of the  club are in  a position to pay their  own expenses and are willing to do  so; but? on The' other iiand, the majority are not, so it is up to Ladysmith citizens to .patronize their con*-*"  cert on Monday night and give them  a rousing seiid-ofi.   The team in La-  dysm'ithrhr.s- "- a-ways made a good  showing   and     has gone up  against  the best teams of 'British  Columbia,  usually     coming  off victorious. Now  in their efforts to go up against the  best teams in     the Western  States,  we should get together at their concert, fill the  house and show we appreciate  their efforts.  I  know 'quite  a bunch  are a little  sore at     the boys because they are  taking in tlie trip, and are knocking  them  every  chance  Ihey  gel.  Still,  it doesn't niaiter where you go, you  will always   find  a'bunch  of-kickers.  It isn't as if a subscription list were  being sent around , wheie you* give  something for  nothing.   A   good concert is  being  given and any one going  is   going   to  get their  50  cents'  worth.   In closing I would say everything up to the     present in the way  of entertainment for  the purpose of  raising  funds  to defray expenses has  'unfortunately   been   marred   by   unfavorable  weather, and  it has been as  -much as the club, could do  to clear  expenses, and at present I understand,  the funds of the club total $74,  and  it is, of course,  impossible to expect  them     to defray expenses with  this  small amount.  ���������Thanking you, Mr. Editor, for your  valuable space.

Serious developments arose  in connection with  the recent death  of Prince Amilakho,-whose body was  left  lying in a house in the vicinity  of  Tiflis.

Troops   were   eventually   dispatched  to  bring the  body  to Tiflis  and     it  was   feared   that  disorders  would occur  at  the  funeral.  PLOT  TO  ASSASSINATE  KING PETER.

The recent attempt to assassinate  the Sultan df Turkey is sus*-  pected to have been the work of the  same organization.  SALMON CONDITIONS  ONTHE FRASER  Noakes  stating that  although     her  J. J. Ba>l>cock, provincial commissioner of Jisheries was interviewed  recently   by   a Colonist  reporter    on  ibe return from the Fraser nver  where he lias been observing, the conditions oi the salmon on the spawning grounds, after tracing their  course up tho straits from the  ocean.     ������  lie reports the run up the river to  have been unusually large this seasou,  the sa'mon for the most ,-part making  straight for the river from the ocean  by the most direct route and crowding  in the upper reaches of the Fraser in  an altogether phenomenal manner,  lie visited the salmon hatcheries at  Scaton lake, where by a series of  wiles in the passages it was pcssibie  to estimate the number of fish taken  m. the calculation being that some  SO.000 were supplied to Anderson lak-e  and about 70,0fl'0 to Scaton lake and  and about 100,000 left on the wires  lor hatching purposes. The other  hatcheries on the river were also- sup  plied in like manner and proportion.  The  Quesncii  spawning  grounds wtre  also found to be in satisfactory WQi'k  inig order, the fish ladder at the darn  having proved a success and these  grounds   he estimates  as one, fourth  of the Fraser river spawning area.  The yield of which is ca-cuiated to  compensate for n somewhat shorter  run than was recorded in 1901.  Crossing  to  tho Horsefly river Mr.  Babcocks observations from that point were generally satisfactory and he  I is     of    opinion that from the nature  ' of the    steady    run this year   more  i spawn win he 'aid in the headwatert  I    As    regards tho     canning industry  generally   Mr.     Badcock  found    that  the work had been considerably handl  capped  by  the difficulty of  procuring  skilled  labor.   The net  result  of Mr.  Babcock's obretvation  is that whilst  another   fat yeac may be confidently  -expected      four  years   hence,  it will  be     probably preceded by three lean  are propositions.  Mr. Ba-bcock returns in time to be  present at the meeting of the B. C.  Fisheries commission recently appointed by the Federal government  at Ottawa, which win convene at the  Driard Hotel at 10 a.m. on Tuesday  the 19th inst. The deliberations of  the meeting will probably be confined  to matters of organization and the  informal discussion of the work assigned it by the government. ; j  '-I  ;sK-ffl DAILY LEDGER  'az&sr  THE DAILY LEDGER  Published   every day except Sunday.

GATACRE   STREET-     Ladysmith.  50   YEARS'  EXPERIENCE  BETTER TIMES FOR THE  .WOMEN OF     HOLLAND  ��������� The women of Holland are very  proud of "the fact that Holland is  ruled over by a young Queen.' They  aie inclined to ascribe the revision of  the laws of their country'relating to  their interests, to the womanly influence at the head of the state-  The    last years     have seen r great  change in the     laws affecting women.  Fathers     hold no    longer   sole po-wer  over their     children, but parents have  e-lual tights, a     fair enactment that  judge forms    an opinion as to which  has only recently    been made law.   In  the case of divorce  or separation  the  .parent should     have the     custody of  the children by     weighing   the report  of a   family    cojnciave formed of relatives* of both     sides  of the interested  parties.  Her property, savings, or future  earnings can he secured to a woman  in her marriage contract, -but it is  interesting to note.that, should tlie.  lege before her marriage the husband  has a right to the possession of any  earnings which she may make in future.  With regard to the throwing open  of professions to women, little dilli-  cuity has been experienced. If a woman is able to pass tho qualifying  examinations there is no _ ar to her  suLsQquent admission either to the  legal or medical  profession.  A bureau for Uie convoniei.ee of  professional women is one of the tno������(j  useful institutions in Holland . In an  ��������� parts of the country agents collect,  and distribute information on every  point connected with women's woi;k.  Advice is given on the subject of education,'and with regard to. the special training rci'ltuircd for seme professions, inquiries are made re'spect-  at home and in the Dutch co'onics. and  applicants are put into communication  through the bureau with possible employers.  An industry which has gained considerable popularity in Holland is  that of laccmakin-g. . It is a tcvival of  the old handicraft/ for which Holland  ���������w/as once famous but the industry  suffered from the introduction of machine made    lace,     and,     until a few  HARTLEY   GISBORNE  Member  Can.   vSociet}-- of   Civil  Engineers  Member Institution of Electrical Engineers," England  Member  International Electrical  Congress   at St. Louis, 1904  ���������Electrical Engineer���������  P.

Jt is    generally     admitted that although     the;   pneumatic     tire is the  weakest     part of    an automobile,  ������t  makes the present     day car possible.  Yet   inventors have "been at work for  j������ars Uymg to' perfect a solid ���������tire of  some sort   that  would taKe   i&e- js-'svee  of  the air     fined  one.

Similar affairs have bee"  tried ar.-im- J  bcr of times, but have  been- discarded  inauiiy  because     of excessive  weight.  Tlie   inventor ina'de an      csp-orimcmUi  trip   recently, "which showed   that the  idea is  nearing   perfection.   The wheel  is  somewhat  cumbersome  in  appearance-   The principal  of she pneumatic  tube  is. there,  but it is  removed Tom  the      dangers      of contract   with,'be  ground.   Midway     between      the hub  and   the outer     rim are two  interior  rims,     between which     rests a tluce.  inch   pneumatic  tube.

Now,  however,       since  colored  pictures have become so popular,    nearly    all slides  are  tinted,  and  Mrs.   Gail  Clements,   of   Battle  Creek,  is one of the most successful  artists in  this,-very exacting  work.
