RALPH SMITH SPEAKS
AT OPERA HOUSE
Candidate For the Constituency Has Large
Gathering of Electors To Hear His
Views on Politics
He   Mentions   Incidentally   That in Six
Months Ladysmith Will Have a Daily
-Mail Steamer
Mr. Ralph Smith's meeting in  the
Opera house last night was large,
and while it was livened up by a
number of interruptions when tWu
speaker referred to the attacks ol
the Socialists on him, and when he
denounced the Socialists and their
methods, the audience accorded him a
\ery good hearing punctuated by applause wiicn he made a point with
which tlicy particularly appreciated.
Noticeable amongst the audience was
a large number of ladies.
Mr. BtU'itl Murray, who was in thc
chair, invited any ot the opposition
candidates or their representatives
to-take their scats oh the platform,
and nobody responding, he introduced
Mr. Kalph Smith.
Mr. Smith in opening, said the
man who could nut raise contentions
by bis opinion was a poor ix>rt of
man. He respected a man who differed from him and the only person he
could not tolerate was the man who
was dogmatic and did not think there
was any other side than that whicli
lie upheld. lie bad represented the
constituency iu the bouse for li\c
years and no man could do so with-
'out raising criticism: There were,
no doubt, people who were prejudiced
against him from what they had
heard Irom those opposed to him,
but he had aright to ask them to
hear his side of the question. It had
been said that, he bad voted against
the anti-Mongolian clause which it
it had been attempted to place in
the Grand Trunk Pacific charter.
There was some amount of truth iu
that statement, but there was a good
deal less truth than anything else iu
it. The most dangerous statement
was one of that kind. An amendment-
had been presented by Mr. Karle iu
the Commons against employing
Chinese on the Grand Trunk Pool lie,
lie voted against it because it    did
not go     far enough; for if such      w ■ -
measure wns to be eltcdtlvo It must \huit,^MmJ™ V,,s.iimi,f:ll,,.V!loy
asked how much government ownership was there in the cities o! his
district. These cities could tlo
as absolutely within the terms ol
their charters as the Parliament
couid do within its powers lb the
Dominion. II the cities did not put
into effect their powers ol public
ownership, how was one to suppose
tlicy would be in lavor ol it in larger things? For example, in Nanaimo
when the question of public ownership of the scavenger business came
up; 75 p.c. oi the people had been
against the work toeing taken out ol
,j.ivate hands.' There were two small
cilies in the whole Dominion who
owned their street railways. The
Grand Trunk Pacilic bill for which
he    voted     did provide lor a large

had saitl that if Mr. Karle was sincere he would have applied his amendment to all railways. As, however, it hail simply given one company
an 'advantage against the others,
was it. not right to say that such licing the case it was licttcr not to ha,ve
such a law at all. Previous to this
question cumin ; up Mr. .Smith had
discovered that the CI.'I'.P. Was employing alien surveyors on the route
lo thc detriment ol Canadians, lie
brought this to the attention ol tho
Minister! who catered ten or eleven of
these aliens to lie deported. As a result ol this the Minister had also
stilled iu the House that he intended
to adhere to the principle of restricting the work to Ilritish subjects.
Referring to Mr. Parker Williams' remarks ou Immigration, Mr. Smith
said that ho was strongly agnfctst

Mr. Smith agreed with this, and

This caused a number ol interruptions, but Mr, Smith, amid laughter,
cited the |osilioiis of police aud license cumniissit.ners as accepted by
Socialists.

FIERCE FIRING.
Mukden, Oct. 18.—It rained during
thc night hut the roar of the artillery did not tease for a moment. The
day broke cold with a cutting wind.
The roads have been ruined by the
rain.
Cannonading is raging more fiercely than on previous days ol the light
which is now entering on the second
week; it can be heard from the
south. The losses on both sides
have been enormous, but this is forgotten in the crowding of dreadful
events upon each oilier. Tbe lighting
still continues williou1   intermission.

displays little alarm. Business in
the streets aud markets proceeds air

.SUCCESSFUL ASSAULT.
(Associated Press Despatches.)
There was no fighting on the Rus-1
sian lelt yesterday and the Japanese
operations on the extreme right evidently intended to cut the railroad
below Hun River, to have failed, the
Japanese being unable to get beyond
Schinipu, two miles west oi the
Shakhe railroad station.
Fiehi Marshal Oyama seems to be
massing troops against'the Russian
centre and the war office here expects
that he will make a desperate effort
to-night or tomorrow to retake the
two vital positions.
STORM THE HILL.
The General Stall believes that the
storming ol Lone Tree Hill, for valor and slaughter will occupy a place
by itself in military annals.
Kuropatkin, under whose eye the
assault wifl, made, rechristcned it
Poutiloff Hill, in honor of the man
who led the attack at the head of
the -second brigade ol the Easlt Siberian Rifles division, and who was
subsequently decorated on .'the field
with the St. George's Crosu.
I'he lull is a precipitious rocky
height and although the Japanese
had occupied it only a short time
they had thrown up very strong defences.
The river running at Its loot, increased the difficulty of the task but
it was so sealed and carried successfully against the unprecedented opposition ol a Japanese division 14,-
llllll men with many guns. The Russian losses werc terrible. The sighting on the crest of the hill was nlto-
cial wortt to the miners, advising
them iu the interests of peace tiiul
harmony to have nothing to tlo  witli

the government had granted tho two
things that were asked; an increase
in the amount ol llie province's share

the amount oi money spent In the
constlllency since he bail been in the
house,
A voice, "Not in Ladysmith,"
"Mr. Smith, "Look at the wharf;"
A voice, "We want the whole amount of money nt once."
Mr. Smith, "They could not trust
all tlie amount to a fellow like you.
I am afraid you would not divide
up," (Laughter.)
"Is there a postoffice Irero?" asked
Ihe same voice.
"Yes," replied Mr.- Smith.
"Docs it belong to the government?"
"Oh, yes," replied Mr. Smith,
laughing.
"It does not," replied the Interrupter.
"Well, then" responded Mr. Smith

marks of thc dreadful combat.
Some of the newspapers have the
Russian success at Lone Tree Hill
as complete evidence that Kuropatkin
will again make a genuine advance
along the whole line, printing the announcement in big headlines. "Thc
Russians resume the advance." Kuropatkin has crossed the Shakhe
river. He has 280,000 men and 900
guns.
The General Staff has received the
following despatch from Gen. Sak-
haroff dated to-dayr "The Russians
repulsed a Japanese attack on their
light wing, during the night of Oct.

antllzy, on the hank of the Shakhe

SETTLING THE LAND.
The shipment of a small number of
cattle to the Chilcotcn country serves as a reminder that each year the
great northern interior of tlie province is receiving increased attention
as a place for settlement and more
especially - as furnishing ranges for
live stock. The difficulty ol getting
access to that great district will,
however, prevent any great rush of
people until there is soincMiing in
the form ol railway communication
to the; coast. The settler nowadays
as a rule, docs not care about going
into the trackless wilderness as a
pioneer, but prefers to he somewhere
within reasonable reach of a railway.
Thc long, slow growth of a small
settlement far away 'roni the ccn- „
trcs ol life antl bustle is not what]Cabin
most men desire. Antl there should
not be the necessity, in a province
ol this Immense size with such a
small population, lor a man to lie obliged to go far alleld lor land upon
whicli to make a home. It appoaes
to us that some method should he
adopted to settle up the portions ol
the province near where the hulk of
the population now lives, before trying to Induce people to go miles into the interior to seek a home. There
are quantities ol land, oi course that
need clearing before the soil can become productive and it is almost a
hopeless task for a single individual
to set himself to the work ol clearing away huge tree trunks. Ho would
litecome old before he could reap any
real benefit from his toil. But if wc
mistake not, the government, a couple ol years ago, set aside an appropriation for purchasing machinery lo
be used experimentally in the clearing of land, the cost ol such clearing
to he charged against the owner of
the land benefited. However, nothing
seems to have come to this, and wc
arc not aware of the experiments
t having been undertaken. Sonic scheme
of this kind, however, should be productive of good. It the machinery
owned hy tbe government were used
in a district to clear up n good sized
area, tlie land could then very readily be soltl to actual settlers at a
cost that would well recoup the outlay nl the government. Ihe country
would be just (lint much Improved,
and there would he contented1 families settled where otherwise no man
would caro lo undertake thc clearing
of the land.

A canvass of the city is being made for subscribers to

Each subscriber to the Daily Ledger will be handed a
card and asked to write down a guess of the number of
people our census, which will be taken with reasonable accuracy will show.
Envelopes will be given with thc card. Write down your
guess, sign your name, put the card in the envelope and seal
it up; either hand it to the canvasser or leave it at the

will be counted after that date.
The census will be computed by the 15th of November.
Thc envelopes will then be opened and the following prizes
given:
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.

SOCKEYESARE
VERY SCARCE
Inspector Babcock On  Result
of His Inspection of Spawn'
ing Ground*
Mr. John P. Babcock, provincial
Fisheries Commissioner, hvlio has
completed an inspection of the salmon spawning grounds tributary to
tho Kraser River, says regarding the
results of his trip:
"This season, like the two past,"
he continued, "there were very few
sockcyes to*be found on any of .the
spawning grounds,' save at the head
of Llllooet Lake and at Morris
Creek,on the Harrison. Thc run—
ii a few straggling fish may be termed a nut—at Shushwap and Adams
Lakes and at tlie other sections of
thc Thompson district and at Qucs-
iiel anil Scaton Lakes and the tributaries of the Eraser above the Harrison river were very light and at
many points there were no fish at
all.
"The run in the Birkenhead,
....though fair, did not equal that of tlie
last two years. At Morris Creek, j
ou the Harrison, there appears, bo
far, lo be Icwcr fish than in any of
the past lour seasons, though it is
too early yet to determine just the
extent of the run there. This is a
favorite spawning ground of thc laM>
of the run, and if there arc any
stragglers coming into the lower river, they will show up there.
"The take of eggs to far is considerably less than it has been al
this lime of the year for the past
three seasons, and the men in charge
of the work there say there is a no
ticcahle falling off in the run. I
have spent, three spawning seasons
on the Eraser river watershed, studying the conditions affecting the
spit wiling grounds anil fish, and am
ol the opinion that the Ilarrlson-I.il
looet watershed lias boon during that
period the best stocked section ol
the Fruiter, This may be due lo the
fact that that shed is most suitable
or it may be due to the propagation
Harriet! on there for the last ten
years.
"At Shuswap there have licen nt
eggs taken worth mentioning. Tlie
run in tills section is even more ot
a failure than it was)last year. At
the provincial hatchery at Sealor
Lake llie run so far is slightly larger than it was last year, but thai
is not saying much, as tbe run Inst
year only produced two million egg,t.
"The closed season Irom August
■2!i to September 15, inaugurated this
year, tines not appear to have been
as advantageous! as I had expected,
but this failure lo come up to expectations is iiiiijiicsI ionahly due to the
Ifact that there were no llsh running
this year. The run In the Eraser
this year was, as every interested1'
person knows, as the term goes 'llie
worst ever.' Now If the fishermen
cannot catch fish in thc lower river
during the season it is ber,.use there
arc nn llsh to catch, and il there are
no lisli it Ik because heretofore we
have caught loo many llsh, anil so
long as wc do so, no one has the
right to expert the hatcheries to be
filled with spawn."
"The one thing to be done to
bring about better conditions is, as
all i-miners on both sides ol the line
must admit, to give the llsh greater
protection, thus ensuring a siiffcicnt
number to reach the spawning
grounds.
"The flshwny built by mo 'or the
provinciiH government on llie dam
at the outlet of ({iicsncl Lake last
month worked lo my entire satisfaction. When there Is a run of
sockcyes there tlicy will havo no difficulty 111 passing Hie dam, which

INFINITUDE OE THE INFINITES
SIMAL.
In his recent "Introduction ol
Spectrum Analysis," Dr. W. Marshall Watts shows that "in a drop
cf water the number oi molecules is
ro great that, il wc could sec litem
when thc drop was magnified till it
had apparently the dimensions ol
our earth, they would appear like a
heap of tenuis balls, in number inomc-
Ihing like 9,550,000,000,000,000,001),-
0110.000." Even then, it appears,
molecule would be subdivisible into
three atoms, two ol the hydrogen and
one of oxygen. And it is, ol course
a matter of common knowledge that
in every atom ol hydrogen there arc
some thousand electrified "corpuscles."
About 150,000 bushels ol wheat

I?ATE OF DISCOVERY.
What may prove to be the first an
thenlic news of the foundering of
the Alaska steamer Discovery which
wint down in November last year,
has just reached Seattle through
Captain E. P. Miner, who learned
Alaskan water this summer the
story ol the wreck. According, to
the story told by Captain Miner by
Mr. and Mrs. Frank Dunn, of Littu-
ya Hay, Alaska, Chief John, a member ol the tribe of Littuya Hay Indians, was the - last person to see
the Discovery and he watched her
sink out ol sight.
The old mdinn stated that tlie
vc.-scl was foundering when be saw
her on November 2nd, thc day alter
she left Vnkutat. Apparently her
olliters were trying to get IntoH/itliii-
cqntrul over the vessel. An awful
storm raged at the time. The Discovery, seemingly waterlogged pit-
chtsl and rolled. She would plunge
down bow first and almost sink
Irom view, then rise antl go down astern. For, nearly un hour Ohio!
John saw her laboring, when she
disappeared altogether while rounding the point on the Southern side
of Littuya Hay.
At the lime ihe wind was blowing
a living gitle. Heavy Haas were running, antl so angrily that no small
craft hail any liecn there would have
lured lo venture out,
Chief John says I lucre can he uo
doubt that the iDiscovcry went,
while rounding the southern point of
Littuya Hay anil that every person
aboard her perished. The old native is regarded as truthful and
trustworthy not only by the people
v| hfs tribe, but hy Ihc whites as
well.
The Discovery, sailed Octoher 15th,
lllll.'l, Irom Nome to Seattle. She
had upwards ol 30 passengers aboard
when she left there, but many of
them left thc vessel at Sand Point
Kodiak and Valdcz. Knktilal was
