NKW CABLES.
The ValdBz-Silika cable will be
completed by October 10th, unless
there   arc     sonic unforseen delays-
Dy the completion of the VaUez-
Sitka cable the government will have
completed the Immense task of limiting one continuous wire between Seattle and the far north, consummating the work incident to the completion of the Seattlc-Sltka cable.
The government has now on its
hands the problem of constructing a
cable line from Valdcz to Dutch harbor. A bill providing for such a
cable will be introduced into congress at its next session, and those
who, claim to he in a position to,
know the probable fate of the measure state that it will probably pass.
In connection with the Dutch harbor cable the North American Telegraph aud Cable Company, a corporation largely liriancicreil by local
capital-, is planned to run a cable
from Dutch harbor to Siberia, thus
making Seattle the connecting link
between United Stales and Alaska
aud Russia.
Quite a variety of important .subjects came before the city council
last night., one of the decisions being
to purchase a lot for a combined fire
hall and city hall. The subject was
brought up by Aid. Bcveridge, who I
remarked that there was no report,
yet as to the sclectiui nf a lot for a
city hall and fire hall, and he believed the council should take some ut-
t ion.
The mayor remarked that the insurance inspector had informed a
gentleman who owned property in
the town that just as soon as the mo
department was put in proper Uiapc,
fire insurance rates, would tic m'.Juc-
cd very materially. Aid. Bevmidgo
thereupon moved that the I'u-ner lot
on Roberts street, ami second avenue
be purchased from Mr. Hamsaj at a
cost of,$12"..
Aid. Mat thewson and Kinn.'y i:. voted building on Market Square, I,-it
the Mayor explained there was some
question as to whether this could legally be,done and Aid. Uew-ridge's
mot ion carried. Having decided to
put up a civic building tbe next
thing to do was to find out what
sort of structure it. should be and
Aid. Nicholson was authorized to
see 'about getting a rough sketch
plan to submit to council;
A ((notation for a hose reel from
a Vancouver firm being considered
too high, il was decided to call for
tenders for the vehicle.
Later in the evening the Mayor
called attention to a lire that had
recently happened and which in his
opinion should be investigated, there
being circumstances that tendered
this advisable. He had asked Mr.
Young, for the cily, to bring on
such an enquiry, aud now desired the
council to endorse this action. This
was done.
A petition signed by all the teamsters in town asked that the top
part of High street lie improved lo
give them access to the upper levels
of the city, the road now generally
used for heavy teaming passing entirely through private ground which
was .'■•oou to be fenced in. Some discussion followed and eventually the
Subject was referred to the street
committee to report at next meeting
ou the best plan to pursue.
The street committee reported that
they had expended $1,156 out of their
appropriation of SI,200. The report
was filed.

GET A MO.VR ON.
New York, Oct. 1.—William Ran-,
dolph itirst, president of the national association of Democratic clubs,
has issued an address to that association urging upon its "member?,
"Special activity and untiring energy from now until the closing of the
polls."

NlfoW ELECTRICAL   DISCOVERY.
The discovery of the greatest importance to electric power plants
was made at San Francisco, recently, when two heavy currents of electricity were imposed on the same
wire without an explosion. Heretofore it lias been held impossible lo
synchronize electric currents on   the
amc wire. The power was sent
from the plant of the Bay Counties
company at Colfax to the Standard
Electric company at Mokelumiie hill,
a disAnee of 551) miles, This city
is supplied with power by the Standard company, hut there was :i
break in the service and the Bay
Counties' power was turned om
During the evening the Standard
plant was placed in operation agaii
and thus it was that the two cur
rents met somewhere on the lonj]
length of wire. '
Bilks aggrcgaling $70!) were authorized paid if correct.
When the pay for the fire chief at
$10 a month came up Aid. Blair
tvantcd to know what the chief .vas
paid for, as he never did anything to
practice his men with the hose. To
tkis the Mayor said jokingly that Aid
Blair being one of the fire wardens,
must consider himself to blame if
there happened to be anything not
going properly in his department.
The Mayor brought up the question of the sand pit. It was now
within the city limits and it was
for the council to say whether a
revenue should be derived from the
property. He believed that the best
method was to have it in charge of
one man, the one who would givevtbe
highest bonus for the privilege, lie-
sides paying 25 cents a load for the
sand. Precautions should be taken
also that the cost to other people
should be regulated, so that users
could not be overcharged for hauling.
The proposal to have one man in
charge was so that he would be responsible for the good condition of
tho pit. After an exchange of views,
Aid. Bcveridge moved that anyone
be allowed to take sand on payment
to the city clerk of 25 cents a load,
and this was carried.
The Mayor brought up the printing
of the city by-laws. The partie:
who bad secured the tender should he
notified that if their work was not
soon forthcoming the contract would
be cancelled.
Aid. MaUhewsou moved that unless the printing is done and delivered to the council in two weeks the
contract, be cancelled.   This carried.
Water motors was another topic
brought lo the front by His Worship. He advised that a test case lie
made, whether a business firm i -t!d
allow the water from such power to
flood the public streets.
Aid. Nicholson wanted to know
what was to he done about electric
light for the city. The Mayor said
Air. Hunter was now east and it
was just as well to wait until he
returned before doing anything.
The city cleric reporting that one
of the persons notified had not complied with the tire by-law regarding
putting in a chimney instead of a
stovepipe, the council gave instructions to prosecute.
. The liianagers and pastor of the
Presbyterian church complained of
the undue noise made by boys and
men on the street near the church
during evening service. Several i.f
lbe council agreed that the noise
was most objectionable, but Aid.
Blair was of opinion that the    com-'
thc police and not to the council.
The complaint was referred to the
night-watchman to take steps preventing a recurrence of the nuisance.
A resolution signed by I. Gold as
secretary, asked that medical men
be employed to find out whether the
smeller smoke was a men an ee to
health.
This resolution, it was explained
by Aid. Blair, was passed at a public meeting on the green some time
ago. He bad not considered it a
representative meeting, but as chairman he had now sent in the resolution, so it would be off his shoulders.
He was one of those who objected to
the smoke and he moved that a doctor he employed as asked for in the
resolution.
Aid. Kinney did not see whatfcould
bo done as the smelter was outside
the city.
The Mayor remarked that it was
useless spending money without
knowing that any redress could be
bad. Aid. Blair, not getting a seconder, his resolution dropped and the
letter was filed.
Mr. Campbell's application for a
scavnnger's license was granted,
.John May offered to pay u dollar a
month for the privilege of keeping-
his cabin on Methuen street. He was
willing it should be moved wherever
the council desired, ft was decided
to grant this on payment of $2 a
month ground rent; also to charge
the Chinese who have cabins on the
street in the same locality $5 a
month ground rent on the sarnie conditions.
The school board's requisition for
fSDtf.eO for teachers' salaries in
September was referred to the finance committee.
Mr. S. V. Wool ten, registrar general, wrote that a copy of the official
city map, about which the city had
made enquiries of him, could be traced for $10. If was decided to get
the map.
Mr. Campbell wrote that owing to
the fencing of a lot at Sixth avenue
he was unable to get access to the
ground for dumping garbage. The
city would therefore have to open up
that part of Sixth avenue to give
him an outlet. The amount of work
to be done being very small, the
question was referred to the street
committee.
A cheque fur IS!>7, the per capita
grant from the education department
for the quarter less teachers' salaries paid in July, was received.
St. John's Lodge A. P. and A. ...
having requested that the street level for their building be given them,

THE NEW WHARF.
Apart altogether from politics, tbe
speedy building of a public wharf by
the Dominion government is some,
thing that will be of considerable
benefit to the city. It is easier to
pick out a convenient spot for this
important work now while the cily
is young than to wait until perhaps
ihc waterfront is devoted to other
purposes. Mr. Smith in his interview published yesterday promises that tlie undertaking shall
lie carried out without delay and certainly no one, whatever his party affiliations, should cavil at this real
benefit to Ladysmith.
sufferers. The only salvation from
such an unhappy state of affairs is
a healthy public- opinion and such
strict laws governing divorce that
people once married cannot cast
aside their obligations and responsibilities for some tri'val cause.

FIRE PROTECTION,
Fire protect ion was one of the subjects that came up beiore the city
council, last night several times, anil
a very important question it is; lor
as the mayor pointed out, it had
been staled by an insurance authority that as soon as tlie city had its
fire department in an efficient condition the insurance rates would be
greatly reduced. This would be a
very large saving to the individual
property owner aud besides '.bei is
protection against loss of life. The
knowledge that when a lire breaks
out ' there is proper apparatus at
hand to light it gives a feeling ol
confidence and minimizes the datigii
The first steps towards the erection
ol a fire hall was taken by the resolution to purchase a site for an adequate building. Tho place selected is
central and will make a convenient
spot for the City Hall as well, it
being understood that the council
chamber will be on tbe floor over the
quarters lor the apparatus. There
is an excellent water pressure anil
with a number of additional hydrants placed where they would lie of
the greatest advantage, the cily mny
depend upon being able to control
ijuito a serious'outbreak ol fire, provided there is enough hose in service.
DIVORCE AND CRIME.
In the report ot W. L. Bodine, superintendent of compulsory education
in'Chicago, it is stated that, tho chief
reason for crime among the juveniles
in that city is the divorce court. Jilr.
Bodine says that the great majority
ot girls who go astray arc the    offspring   of divorced parents.     Thes-r
children   , first lose respect for their
quarrelsome     fathers and  mothers,
and when the separation conies have
only the influence of one parent. The
number nf divorced people in Chicago
numbers the enormous total ol nearly   forty thousand and is 'noro.ulng
among the native born people ol the
States.       All of this goes to show
that people who do not consider the
sacredness ol the marriage vow arc
indifferent about their children, a result that might well he expected to
follow.   Where divorce is so lightly
regarded il! assorted couples rush into matrimony without due consideration; they find themselves ill-mated
and betake themselves to the divorce
court, the unfortunate children     ot
these unhappy marriages being    the

lake, a body of wafer 201) miles
long, which is really a river one-
lliird as long as the Ottawa. Long
Lake empties into James Bay, and
Ihc proposal Is to build a dam anil
divert the water in a southerly direction into the Ottawa River. It is
further planned to build a scries of
retaining dams lower down the river to hold back the water in tlie seasons ot plenty, and thus provide a
sufficiency for the period of low wa-
IIIS BIG FEET.
I lis big feet arc alleged to be responsible lor the arrest ol Dennis
O'Bryan at Oanyon Sity, Ore, a
few days ago, on the charge ol having broken into a store and saloon
at Monument, Cirant County, Oregon. The robbery was committed
last Saturday night, and it is stated that the unusually big Icet oi
O'Bryan enabled the officers to
track him across the country to
Hopponer, where he was identified by
the money.
WHY HE ESCAPED.
The rivalry between two sisters
of Wect Baltimore as to which
should shoot a burglar discovered
frying to open tlie kitchen door of
their home a few days ago, became
so great that he escaped, and neither oi them enjoyed the rare pleasure.
Tlie qlder sister ran into the trout
room, and seizing a pistol, returned
with it and started toward the window lor the purpose of taking a
shot at the intruder.
"iYou had better give the Jiiistul
to me," continued the younger,
"you don't know bow to shoot."
"No," whispered the elder, "I
wouldn't think of letting you handle
it."
"You shan't shoot the pistol!"
commanded the younger, "you are
likely to kill yourself."
The older sister attempted to
walk toward the window, but she
was prevented Irom doing so by the
younger one. The argument was begun again, and as the young woman did not talk in the softest tone
of voice, the burglar heard them distinctly, and, thinking that their Intentions were not of the best, took
lo bis heels.
Upon the return ol their mother
in the evening, there was a consultation as to who should capture all
future burglars and the older sister
was delegated to have exclusive enjoyment of tills plcasanc pastime-

How Many People In Ladysmith?
A cauvass of the city is being made for subscribers to
the Daily Ledger. It has been suggested by some of the
business men that it would be of interest and value to the
community to know how many people live in Ladysmith
and immediate vicinity, 'this means all of the actual residents within half a mile of the postoffice in Ladysmith, exclusive of Chinese.
Each subscriber to the Daily Ledger will be handed a
card and asked to write dowu a guess of the number of
people our census, which will be taken with reasonable accuracy will show. v
Envelopes will be given with the card. Write down your
guess, sign your name, put the card in the envelope aud seal
it up; either hand it to the canvasser or leave it at the
Ledger office. All guesses must be in during October; none
will be counted after that date.
The census will be computed by the 15th of November.
Tha> envelopes will then be opened and the following prizes
gnus.
1. To the person who guesses nearest to the exact number of people living within one-half mile of the postoffice
(exclusive of Chinese) $20.00 in gold.
2. The person coming second nearest, f 10.00 in gold.
3. Tlie person coming third nearest, $5.00 in gold.
If two or more persons tie for any place the money will
be divided.
This contest will be absolutely fair. No person in any
way connected with the canvass will either give out any information or be allowed to compete.

Look at 'lm cross, an1 'e'll drop down dead.
Ed Jamison's father died at flood-
time while trying to gave another man'a
fortune. For twelve years hla mother
aVfivo alone to the village with tbe
produce, beat down a mortgage dollar
- by dollar, subdued a stubborn upland
farm und asked odds of no man. Ed
Jamison bad no right to he a coward,
tie grew up strong and healthy. But
a coward he was, and that In u community where physical courage must
almost dally be put to tbe test.
People took differing views of the
mutter. The greater number thought
that bis bruin was wrong somehow.
Only ouce lu a long way was a manor, more often, a woman—who claimed
that Ud Jamison bad some stuff In
him.
"Give blm time—give him time and
the right chance," they Bald.
Hie cllnnce seemed to have come
miten the mother broke her hip. But
for two weeks he clung te the farm as
if it were a life raft in a rocking sea.
The stern ncceaaltlea drove him down
at lust.

pinned him could not be found, for.

honesty and painstaking, he submitted
ernvenly to tbe heaped abuses of the
town "gang" and slunk out of the village each day like a beaten tramp dog.
"ton don't whistle any more, Ed,"
enld his mother. -'"You look thin and
■irk.   What's the matter?"
He hud built her a couch on the Bunny veranda behind the climbing rose.
He eared for her tenderly. The green
valley stretched nwny below them to
the village marked by the smoking tan*
nery chimneys.
"You've iliine well with the farm,
1W. Everybody says bo. You mustn't
get Bick now. Whistle 'Loreiia.' You
know I always like that."
He started low nnd sweetly, quavered and broke dowu, arose hastily and
walked out to the barn. The mother
iWutched him with anxious eyes.
The summer passed with*gun and
aliowcr. Large harvests followed, and
the Jamisons prospered. Ed came to
enjoy comparative pence In tbe village, for the Inability to arouse in him
the least resistance made the game
tiresome.
In September Mrs. Jamison was well
enough to' ride out, and one day Ed
took her te visit a cousin down the
river. He bad nover, like other lada
of his nge, taken the girls to ride, and
this day be playfully called.her hla
first glrl-hls sweetheart. He whistled
the old tunes and Imitated the readable
birds and was happy.
Tbe drive home brought them to the
village just at lamp lighting. Something unusual was happening. Tbe
main street was crowded with men
nnd boys. Teams lined both sides, and
at the open windows nnd In the yards
and baleenles tbe women cbatteel gay-

opposite the speakers' platform iln-y

town boys bored through, jostling the
people to right and left, shouting and
blowing horns. The leader, u tull
young fellow, struck the Jamison horse
across the nose with a horn.
Looking np, he taw who was the
driver, and bis joy- nearly overcame
him.
"Trembely Xt, •■ I'm alive!" ha
•touted. "Dome on, boys! Here's om
game!   He'll scare to death here."
Perhaps they did not see that Ed's
companion was a woman. The people
fell back a little and looked on dully.
Some of the best men of the town
were there, but none offered to Liter-
fere. Bystanders' justice Is as Blow in
gettlag under way aa It la Inexorable

The gang was In their liveliest mood,
They unbuckled tbe harness, tied the
horse's ears, tipped the wagon and

threw a half eaten banana at Ed. He
ducked, and Mrs. Jamison screamed

her face. The sharp stem of the fruit
had made a ragged cut In her cheek.
A country crowd takes up news aa

happening down In the square.
"Ed Jamison's fighting! Ed Jamison's killed two men! There's an aw

tbe rumors caught from man to man.
Something- was bappeniug. Trembely Ed Jamison was "licking" the Tan-
nersvllle gang one by one in a twelve
foot ring under the wavering torchlights of the speaker's stand, while the
speaker waited and wondered.
It was minutes before the men about
tbe wagon fully believed their eyes,
but when they did Ed got fair play tc
the finish. Three of tbe gang tried te
wriggle Into the crowd, but they were
tossed back Into the circle and when
they saw that escape was Impossible

How ProftMor Dlaokle Apologised
Professor Blackle was lecturing to a
new class, with whose personnel he
was imperfectly acquainted. A student rose to read a paragraph, his book
in bis left hand. "Sir," thundered
Blackle, "hold your book lu your right
hand!"—and as the student would
hnvo spoken—"No words, slrl Your
right hand, I say!" The student held
up his right arm, ending plteously at
the wrist "Sir, I hae nae right hand,"
he said. Before Blackle could open his
lips there arose a storm of hisses, ami
by It his voice was overborne. Then
tlie professor left his place and went
down to the student he had unwittingly hurt and put hla arm around the
lad's shoulders and drew him close,
and the lad leaned against bis breast.
"My boy," said Blackle—he spoke
very softly, yet not so softly but that
every word was audible In the hush
that bad fallen on the classroom—"my
boy, you'll forgive me that I was over-
rough? I did not know, I did not
know!" He turned to the students,
and with a look and tone that came

not very fond of children, went    to
see a married sister the other day,
aad found her trying to amuse   her
little hoy, aged five years.
Not long after he arrived she
'stepped out of the room to attend
to some household duty or other,
having him alone with the child.
I The youngster eyed his uncle dubiously for some time- He was
'a spoilt child if ever there was one,
| and had no idea of making promiscuous acquaintances, The "bachelor
tried to make the little one laugh,
liut all he got for his antics was a
sour look..
Finally, without any warning, the
child burst out crying, [lore was a
ijuandry, ito be sure. He didn't dare
to pick the hoy up and soothe him.
Mis attempts in a verbal line were
dismal failures. What should he
do? Finally a thought struck him.
He looked at the crying youngster,
'and the crying youngster looked at
him through his tears. He was evidently much pleased with the impression he was making.
"Cry louder," said he.
The child obeyed.

' dress for men and women comes under government control. Here, in
exceptional eases, a woman may habitually wear men's clothes—and vice

in safety by filing a petition to the
French government arid obtaining the
necessary authorization. Rosa 'Bon-

BOUNDARY SURVEY.
Dr. Otto II. Tlttman, superintendent of the coast and geodetic survey,
lias just returned from Alaska, says
the Tacoma News, where he went to
supervise the first season's work in
marking the international boundary,
in connection with the Canadian
commission, in accordance with the
decision of I In- tribunal which .met in
London last year. This enterprise
seems likely to take some time, in
view of the shortness of the Alaskan summers and other climatic conditions, as well as from the fact
that 1,2011 miles ol boundary are to
lie delimited. Only about half of the
distance was involved in the decision of the London tribunal, hut it
lias been decided to mark also the
boundary along the 141st meridian,
which was not a matter ol dispute.
Mining interests have long desired
better local knowledge of the course
of the meridian, and in places this
has already been marked.
Dr. .Tittman reports that tlie summer now Hearing a close has been unfavorable in Alaska for certain phases ol the present work, particularly
those who require visibility of
mountain lops. Rain lias been abundant, so that certain of these peaks
were nearly always shrouded in
clouds or heavy fogs. One of the engineers camped for 10 days almvc tbe
timber line of a mountain without being aide to get the single observation of its summit which he needed.
Hut an the whole, the parties have
made excellent progress.

It has been found Impracticable to
mark the boundary line where it
crosses the summit of some of the
more inaccessible ice-capped mountains, but as far as practicable monuments are established in such a way
that any one desiring to trace the
line over the summits may tlo so. In
the valleys the monuments arc placed close together, and in all other
localities where private titles are
likely to depend upon the line.
When the work on the disvutcd
boundary has liecn completed the
joint commission will undertake the
marking of the Mist meredian, com1-
inencing at a point west ol Mount
St. Elias, and running northward to
the Arctic ocean.
