HOW CITY OF SEATTLE

Broken   Propeller  Blades  Prove Greater

Funny Incident of the Trials and Accidents
to Two of the Northern
Steamers
An amusing story ol rivalry and
mishap between two steamers wns
brought from tbe north l.y the O.P.
R. steamer Amur which was in port
last night on her way down Irom the
north with lib tons ol concentrates
for the Tyee smelter from the new
mill al .Sneltisliani, Alrtnka. Passing Swanson Hay, Millbank Hound,
on Sunday she found anchored there
tbe steamer Jefferson, the new vessel lhat lias lately been put on the
Skagway run from Seattle. The Jcf-
erson bad three blades of her propeL
lor broken ami related a tale of mishap that was very funny from an
outsider's point ol view, but irritating to a degree, for her oll'icers. On
her trip up from Seattle the Jefferson smashed a blade Irom her propcl-
lor, then she btirJ-Cil on the beach and
a second blade followed tllc first tn
Davy Jones. As she was making
slow time, the Jefferson transferred
her passengers to the City of Seal
lie.   Later on as she crept slowly up
Lynn Canal on Wednesday, the Jefferson came across,the City ot Seattle hung up on a rock with two big
holes punched through the Mn-om. under the boilers. The Jcil'erson promptly wanted to regain her passengers
and would gladly have had the Seat-
tlejs also, but the Seattle would havo
none ot this, and retained the whole
bunch, Waiting lor tlle tide to rise.
She got oh the rock the same evening. Then alter the Jefferson had
reached Skagway, unloaded, and taken on passengers for her homeward
voyago, she got out lor Seattle,
what was her luck but to smash still
a third blade Irom the propeller anil
so she hail to anchor in Swanson bay
as alleady noted and wait tor a tug.
In the meantime the City ot Seattle liad liecn patched up and on her
way down, seeing the plight ot tlle
Jefferson, she again relieved her ol
all the passengers and gayly sailed
away. Imagine the feelings of the
Jefferson's captain to have this
twice happen on the same voyage.

As is well known, the increase in
Hie amount of freight coming to Ladysmith across the Gulf on the ferry
has resulted in the railroad sending,
aver a car twice a week with freight
direct for thc merchants here, instead of as formerly having it distributed from Victoria.
A further improvement is now lo
he made. Thc C.P.R., it is understood, intend appointing an agent
here and before long the freight for
Ladysmith and l/hc immediate district will be distributed from this
point, thus adding ,to the importance
of this point as a railway and commercial centre.

of the great farming progress being

United States mills were shipping in
a great .quantity of lumber at ihe expense of our mills, greatly injuring

TIIE CIVIC BUILDING.
The action of the Cily council
deciding lo at once proi
■ccd with the
erection of a civic building to combine both a meeting place for ?hc
Board of Aldermen and quarters [or
the fire department, will, wc think,
meet with the general approval. The
question was raised once as.to wheth
cr it was advisable, in view of tlio
slender funds at the disposal of the
city, to let the contract for the erection of tho built.tng, .as possii' |y a
small balance would have to lie met
by next year's board. Under ordinary circumstances it is not well tor
a city to run into oycrcxpcnditurc ol
the revenue; but this year ihe city
of Ladysmith stands in a peculiar position. Incorporated in Hie middle
of the summer, thc new council started under exceptional difficulties. All
the machinery for municipal government had to be devised, duties liad
to be undertaken and business tarried on somehow. At present tho
fire apparatus is insufficiently housed
and everyone will agree that it is ol
tlie utmost Importance that the lines of the people ami their property
should be adequately guarded against
fire. At. the saine time loo, the city
council must have some place to
meet. The new bui.ding will serve
both these purposes and the cost is
certainly as modest as onc could expect. The council therefore, we believe, did well to act as it has, tor
the case is onc of urgency and we
have no doubt that the people will
thoroughly endorse the action. The
Board of Trade, a representative
body of business men, lias expressed i
its approval and may be taken as an
evidence of the general views expressed by individuals throughout the
city.

AUSTRALIA AND JAPAN.
The dignity of success with whicli
the Japanese have conducted themselves during the war with Russia   lias
apparently    wrought quite a change
in  feeling  towards  their nation     in
Australia.    On  tlic  island continent
legislation  is  looked  upon as  more
an expression of what is called   the I
workingman   than   in   most  portions
of Hie Empire, outside of New Zealand.   Hitherto Hie Japanese     and
Chinese have been coupled together
in  restrictive  legislation   intended [to
keen out the Orientals.   Now   there
seems to lie some inclination,    how
strong it is impossible to say yet,
to separate the Japanese from     the
Chinese anil place them on a higher
plane. The grounds given arc  that
tlic Japanese are willing to conform
lo the ways of Western nations    in
their own country.   They no longirr
belong   to    the   backward    peoples
steeped in Oriental exchisiveness. Religious liberty is allowed there   and
enlightened     methods are in vogue,
framed    on the best of the systems
pursued by the Western peoples.   For
these reasons they have raised themselves   iar   beyond thc   level of   the
Chinese and cannot be classed   with
thorn.   No doubt if the Australians
•rtill  fear an inundation of Japanese
an. arrangement may Ire made similar to the understanding with Cana-

THE GROWTH
OF EDMONTON
Twenty-two years ago there werc
just twelve log buildings at Edmon-
'• ton. Now Edmonton is a city. Its
proportionate growth has been greater than that of any other community
in Canada. No wonder- the citizens
are proud ol their town, and eonll^
dently predict that it Will be a second Winnipeg. 11 Winnipeg is the
gateway tothe west, Edmonton is tbo
gateway to the west, Edinonton .is tho
tlio Saskatchewan, last or Canadian
cities, is not the least fair.
Like Winnipeg, ami, indeed, like
most Western towns, Kilniuulon was'
originally a Hudson's May post. I'tiri.
Edmonton, tlie place was called; in
honor ot a Chief Factor ol the Company. In the troiilil ins times, when
tlio white man owned 'ust \vl_l leal
estate he could defend with his gun,
every trading post was built with a
stuoki.de, anil had'a bastion at oacl
of its tour corners, i lielore these were
cleared away they wcro flailed upon
more than once to justify the wisdom of their builders. In 18GU Old
Sun, at the head of his Blackleet,
mailc an attack from the other side
of the river, where Strathcona now
stands, but fortunately little harm
was done little brass cannon, still
on view, may have had thcir elTcct on
thc courage ot thc savages. Again,
in J_85, tllc settlers from the surrounding districts Hocked to tlic tint
hut were unmolested.
The    fur trade has been for mors
than a century thc backbone of   the
industrial life in tbe city. Nearly every large Hu-opeah importer lias an
agent    there to secure the peltries,
which arc1 brought .in'.by the traders.
The bulk of the trade, of course, belongs to the Hudson's Bay Company,
and is not disposed ol at Edmonton,
which iu used by the great Company
as a mere agency for collection,   tlic
yield being shipped direct to London
where it is sorted and sold.   In   the
early days immense numbers ot bulta-
io were killed on the great plains to
the south-east.   Later on, when this
source failed, the woods Indians liad
llicir day, and;countlcss beaver", -rear,
Usher, fox marten, wolf, wolverine,
mink, lynx, skunk andrmuQkrat skins
were gathered in'tile Mackenzie, Peine.
Yukon and Athabaska river districts
and traded at Fort Edmonton.      If
this business is nol so great today
as it was when game was more plentiful, it Is at least greater in f'kliiinii-
ton than in any oilier places iu Canada,     and must be worth at least
$250,000 a year.   An Edmonton llrin
—RleDougall & Seeord—has tlic bono.
of holding tlie record price, ol recent
years, tor a silver lox skin. Th. Jycau-
titul pelt sold in London lor $1,7(10.
It is as a farming and stockraising
centre     that Edmonton will thrhe
long alter the last beaver has yielded up his pelt.   Great ranches, such
as those south ot Calgary, there arc
none,  the'.land being better adapted
to smaller holdings where mixed (arming     can lie carried on,  and Mil's
holds true ol the country that lies
between Calgary and Edmonton—tho
foothills ot thc Rockies. Tlio soil, is
rich, and will produce strawberries
with almost Ihc'sainc tacility as No.
1  Maniloba hard. The sloughs   furnish hay for the cutting, and in tlie
poplar bluffs is fuel lor the hauling
Willi wise government encouragement
and supervision Alberta should he
second Kentucky for horses, but'it is
a deplorable lacl that tlic immense
industry ol stock breeding has bf-eu
studiously neglected by  the Dominion and local authorities in the East
and the West alike.
Gold washing is another important
Industry ih the Edmonton districl.
Pay dirt was discovered in tlic Saskatchewan by a former school teacher named Clover in 1802, and lhc
news al (raided hundreds ot miners
from the United States. In lorty
years more than $_,000,000 in gold
has been washed from the river, and
at present large dredges arc employed during the summer months delving in the river bed. The whole districl is underlaid,with practically In
exhaustible coal deposits, the fa't
that tlic best lignite may be delivc .'-
being thus explained. Natural ga.
cd anyw' -re in the city lor $_ a ton
has also been. lound quite near, and
the prcrroncc of pctroleun.-indicated.
Edmonton today has an urban population ol ten thousand people, aud
few a pi oaraiiecs ol Western "wooli-
ness." There arc banks, hospitals
and hotels, with tips tor attendance;
telephones, electric lights, and complaints, no doubt, about the power;
'our newspapers, two breweries, lire
rails, churches and Sunday School
rrizes lor punctuality; dye works, a
rork-paeking corporation;) public)
ichools and hoys playing "hookey.'
there are also clubs, social and ath-
ctic, afternoon teas and heart bum-
ngs, to say nothing of saw mills,
lour mills, and men with three }n-
i'is on one hand who work there,
ust as there are,in the East.
I. S.
■ THE BALD Ill-ADED MAN.
The troubles ol the __-ld-headcd
nan have been "butted" into print
io otten that a man when his hair
jegins to get thin on top always lapis
somewhat touchy about.it. There is
a man, however, whose head is as
shiny as a billiard ball and, who! does
not care whether it is or not. But
he, too, ,fias had his trials and tribulations about it in his day.
When this man's first wile djed, she
left behind her a boy just two years
old. Father and son wero pretty
good chums, although tho youngster
was as much ol a nuisance as ■ they
make them, until he reached mature
age of five, when the friendship cooled considerably. The reason for it
was like this:
The father had decided that It was
hot good lor a inaif. to live alone and
was .looking around lor another wile.
He and his boy lived in an uptown
family hotel and there werc -several j
pretty girls residing in. the same establishment.   Onc in particular took
the fancy of the widower and he.resolved to win her il it were a possible thing. But onc thing, he thought,
stood in his way.   He was getting
bald rapidly, and thc girl was     a
sweet young thing ol not more than
20.   I le resolved upon a bold course.
A French hairdresser had told him
lhat    he    could regain most ot his
hair provided he had his head shaved
frequently.   He decided to do so, anil
to.prevent his tair friend Irom knowing what he was up to, ho purchased
the finest wig money could buy.   He
had his head shaved ami donned  the
wig.  Ho resolved to keep the matter
a profound     secret and particularly
Irom his small son.
The boy and his lather slept together. When thc man went' to bed
at night and his boy happened to be
awake he resorted to all sorts of
wiles to make thc youth keep his
eyes closed while he got that wig off
and substituted a nightcap lor it.
The same thing took place in thc
mornings, and' lor six months the
father fondly believed thai his offspring was in hgppy ignorance ol the
fact that there was not a spear of
hair upon daddy's head. Then one
day thc awakening came.
One day the boy was sent away t'o
visit an aunt in the country. A lew
hours alter he was started on his
journey the lather met a male trieini
who lived in the same house. The
friend drew him aside and said:
"Fred, now that that youngster ol
yours Is out ol the way and won't
get spanked, I'll put you wise to
something. Every morning at the
breakfast table lor hall a year that,
boy, before you appeared on the sojeno
told us every detail ol how you
'fooled' him the night belore while
you wcro taking oft" your wig. He
wns always careful to tpll thc girls
and stated that he invariably kept
one eye open while you' "were ( completing your toilet."
The Seattle man has been married
twice since then and the boy is a
husky yoong man. Thc father, however, has never (fuitc forgiven hint:
lie says lhat thc wig,episode entirely killed his shnnces tor winning the
young woman nt the lani|ly hotel.
Worst ol nil, wince thc head shaviffg
lie has not a single lull ol hair, on it.

 MANUOEUVUES.
Recent English papers contain some
interesting comments upon the late
manoeuvres of the United Ftates
troops in Virginia, from thc pen ol
Col. Stir Howard Vincent, who, it
will be recalled, lectured bolore thc
Canadian Club at Ottawa not long
ago. Among other criticisms Sir
Howard says'
Transport arrangements showed not
a little deficiency, and would have
been quite inadequate to moving the
standing camps ol Khaki-colored tents'
had such been completed. Nor could
the horses bear any better designation than "a useful lot," They were
nothing to look at, poor in condition
and mostly hired. The wagons also
were ol interior order, l'or two
nights out ol the five the troops bi-
ouvacked, returning on the intervening day to tlie standing camp.,
Almost williOi t exception the personnel ol tho forces—militia as well
as regular—v. as excellent, both physically and mentally. The average
height could,not have been much less
than 5 lect 8 inches, ami more intelligent men, easy lo discipline under
proper handling, could not be lound.
Uirtort.irately the system prevailing
in the American militia, as in most
other institutions, ol electing the ol-
friers by popular vote, is not conduc-
i :■ lo discipline. The colonel is similarly elected by the captanns, and
naturally military capacity is not always the tcst^ol qualification. The
equipment of the regulars leaves little to he desired, except that the men'
a.c over weighted for heavy marching, and round thc waist thc canvas
bandolier exposes the cartridge rim
lo tiie glare ol the sun, and to loss
ol cartridges when lying down.
The equipment of tiie militia varies much betwoon the States. In no
case is it very sightly or convenient
A large wallet at thc side takes the
kit, a heavy greatcoat en banderole,
and oltcn a mackintosh sheet and
part ol a tentc d'ahri culminates in a
lnosc tin cup. The slouch hat is,
however, a convenient headdress—rank
being indicated I hereon by braid and
tassels. The field dress is of khaki,
and practically indistinguishable
Irom oiirs—an augury that wc may
be engaged shoulder to shoulder,
should occasion arise—except that a
loose laced gaiter replaces putties*.
In hot weather ■ such as that prevailing in early September in Virginia,
the shirts with turn-down collar regularly issued - to thc American soldier make a comfortable and picturesque fighting dress. A difiioulty,
however, arises from the great drop
in temperature at night.
The manoeuvres themselves wore
more than usually realistic,'and instructive to the superior and other
olliccrs. Everybody knew the general
plan, and could make his own speculations regarding it—a lar more useful proceeding than i the inane process
rampart among ourselves ol letting
nothing be known until the last pos-
rible moment, to the great inconvenience of all, and absolutely preventing regimental olliccrs and men
Irom having the slightest idea what
thoy are going to do, what tlicy are
doing and the why and thc wherc-
foro ol it all. The (latter is certainly
the most cflective way of not developing individual intelligence.
through the teachings ol .heir national     religion.   The cauntry children
have a magnificent opportunity tor
studying nature, for they arc surrounded iliy one beautiful, natural
garc.cn. Numerous temples and shrines dot tlie choicest spots' and to tlieso
the country schoolmaster takes his
little tloek. He is always ■ "guide,
philosopher and triend" on these excursions and usually tells his eager
listeners some story about the particular god whose shrine they arc
visiting.
The children behave ,in a most seemly manner during the recital and reverently prostrate themselves belore
the deity and perforin their act   of
worship.     Theo there is a general
scamper to an adjoining lotus pond
or to leed thc sacred carp that   disport themselves in the.miniature river within.the temple grounds.   Tlicro
is a succession ol beautiful  blossoms 4}
and    flowers throughout tbe whole I*
year    such as the cherry and plum ' ^J
blossoms, wisteria, lotus and clirys-'*
anthciiiiiin.   Thc country children love $
them and otten in season tlic l.ny   «;.
boys and girls, may be seen at  day- J
dawn standing around a lotus   pond  ^
waiting for the beautiful (lowers    to
unfold their glorious petals.
There are numerous household du
ties to lie performed by the children
ol both sexes who live on a farm. Tho.
mother is such a burden bearer that
she often finds it impossible to do all
thc work that falls to her,''lot. Moreover,in order that her girls may mako
useful wives, they,must be trained lo
work and endure hardships, so when
a child is quite young she is taught
to sew, mind thc baby, and work in
the Held.

NELSON WINS.
The tight between Battling Nelson
nnd Young I Corbett last night at
San Francisco was won by Nelson in
the tenth round. It was to have been
a twenty round contest, but in Hie
third round Nelson begun to lone tlie
lighting and Irom that on the men
exchanged ilerce blows and kept it up
desperately. In the ninth round Nelson had his man going anil in the
lentil went right after him Irom tire
start, rushing him to the ropes antl
lauding at will with right ami left
while the crowd cried "stop it."
Finally Corbe.t's seconds threw up
the sponge anil Corbett was carried
to his corner with blood streaming
from his nose, mouth antl ears—utterly defeated. Nelson had scarcely
a mark.
Discussing tlie Nclson-Corbett light
ol last night, Nelson snid today:
At no time during tlie [kilt was ]
in doubt of the result. Of course in
tlic first two or three rounds I was
just feeling him out, hut after flic
third round bail passed 1 knew I bail
him, Before the light I said that
I Corbett wns not game. 1 take that
back. I am not marked up a Hit.
Britt, why, I'll win from Britt, he
foots just like the rest ot theni to
mc, and I'll get him. I won a little
over $0,000 outside of my share of
tlic gatie receipts."
Corbett said: "I was beaten fk;rly,
there is nothing else to it. 1 have
really nothing to say. Let it go out
t'o the world that I say thai 1 was
fairly beaten by a man who is better
Ulan I am. He won and he won fairly all tlie way.jl
James Britt saitl: "Nelson is a
grand little lighter and I realize that
when 1 fight him in December-, I have
to put up a better fight than "I over
did lielore in my life. I have hail my
eyes opened and any doubt thnt I
liad as to Nelson as a card is swept
away. lie is tlic one man that I
want to fight, anil I want to say Hint
all the bickerings between Corbett
andniysclf arc over as far as I urn
concerned, after Hie game showing lie
made. I am willing, il he is, to
shake hands and call oil all past unfriendliness."

.._ minutes and ... seconds, breaking
with him hi his endeavor to form a

from those to whom he has written,
that they will do all in their power
to help him. The fact Hint Hie Canadian Amateur Athletic Union was

him to seek to establish a new   un-
