Mr. Ralph .Smith last night hail a
joint meeting at Cowichan with Mr.
Wolley, the Cbnse-i'vative candidate,
and to-day said lie was well saltisfl-
ed with the result, lie went to Nn.
tiaimo today and there was' to take
the liig Czar for Vancouver, whore
he speaks at Mr. McPherson1" meeting tonight.
Uc A. O'Brien, Mayor Manson, ol
Nanaimo, and L. A. Mounce, former
member of flic Legislature are all
mentioned as likely candidates in the
Conservative interest for Comox-At-
liu against. 'Win. .Sloan. The Conservative convention will be held at
Courlenay on Saturday.
The Ladysmith seniors opened the
bit .kcthall season last night hy defeating Nanaimo with a (score of 10
to 10 after a most exciting match.
The shouts of thc spectators as they
applauded the triumph of the home
team put in the shade tlie plwidlW of
the political meetings, for even the
ladies, of whom there werc many
present, were wild with excitement
and not backward in adding their
voices to the volume of sound thai
made the roof of the opera house
shake. It was a line game and for a
long time llie victory hung in the
balance, but gradually Ladysmith
wore down the visitors and towards
the end had things going their way.
Nanaimo proved surer shots on goal
and this gave them an advantage
that even the more powerful combination ol the home five did not. alilprst
seem to avail. The visitors lined up
somewhat different from tlie names
published yesterday, /the teams being:
Nanaimo-Guards, Dykes, ,1. Hollo:
[centre, Roscwall, forwards, Steele,
Uennet.
Ladysmith—Guards, .1. Eno, A.
Morrison; centre, J. Adam; forwards,
E. Leahy, S. Morrison.
At the start Nanaimo carried the
ball to the Ladysmith end and tried
twice to score, but relief came and'
Adam ineffectually attempted to
reach the basket. ..Play varied for a
few minutes and I hen Steele, who is
a remarkably sure shot, look the first
goal from the Held for the visitors.
It was not long, however, before

Hon. David Walk, New Brunswick's
veteran senator, who on February
tilth Inst entered his one hundredth
year, has drafted a plan for the
federation of the empire which summed up thus:
("That all Ihc provinces owing allegiance tui ou;' Sovereign be gathered into bis empire, and have conferred on
their inhabitants the same privileges
of every unfit enjoyed by their fellow
subjects in the United Kingdom.
"That a new imperial, liiarHament
he formed in whicli all the provinces
be represented.
'That a new imperial government
when formed, might have members
called to it from' any /part of the empire, and lhat il should assume the
debts of all provinces, and Along with
the debts till; sole right of raising
the revenue to pay the interest. on
flic whole public debt, including that
of the provinces with the support ol
the navy, the regular army, militia,
judiciary, civil service and all other
charges at present home by the im
perial government.
"That the policy of free trade be
introduced throughout the whole empire, as. free as il exists :n" the great
republic south of us, every i ouueer
sciling what he produces wl.ie'3 I e
can get the lies!, price, and every
consumer supplying his wants ulierc

parties.
"Each province will have its own
private legislature to manage ids'
own affairs; When it grows loo large

chief magistrate of the old province
might be a governor general with
some additional duties to perform in
assisting bin majesty.
There will probably be some complaints as tn inconvenience In attending parliament on account of

"1 believe lhat God, ill His good
providence, lias placed within our
reach one of the easiest, safest and
surest means of settling this invpor-
luiit question, and I would not bo
surprised lo see some of the provinces and large cities petitioning his
majesty to call the commission, but
perhaps it lias been thought best to
leave tlie matter in ibis hands, as the
sooner its work is done Hie easier it

ceased upon entering the miuod area.
One Japanese destroyer while returning hit a mine and was severely

dead and wounded. The wounded
are taken to the railroad and thence
are transported to Daluy from which
'port they are shipped lo Japan. Tho
Japanese have practically completed
Immense warehouses between Port
Dalny and Port Arthur and have
therein supplies sufficient to last
them until spring. Similar preparations have been made at New
Chwang, where the Japanese expect
the release of sixty transports next
month.
RUSSIAN REINFORCEMENTS.
Tokio, Oct. 20.—Reliable reports
received from private sources estimate the losses of the Japanese left
army during the recent battle at
about 5,1100. The number ol Russian
[dead is largely increased by the further discovery of bodies notwithstanding the nightly removals by lantern light. The Russian forces have
been reinforced by about 30,000 men
of the seventeenth corps, a large portion of the tenth corps and portions
of tbe fifth and sixth Siberian corps
which recently arrived. In all, six
divisions ol the Russian army now
confront tlie Japanese left, army.
Heavy rains have impeded the movements of the opposing armies since
October Mill.
SLAUGHTERED IN BATTLE.
With General Oku's left army    at
the front, Oct. 16., via Tien Tsin—
The seven days' battle north of rYen-
tai Was the heaviest blow yet struck
tlie Russians by the Japanese so far
as loss of life is concerned.   The Japanese buried 1,100 dead left in front
of their lines.   A village in front of
the Japanese contains many Russian
dead but the shell fire ol the retreating Russians prevents the Japanese
from  reaching them.   Conservative
estimates    place the Russian casul-
ties at not less than 25,000.   Probably many more dead are on the Held
in places not yet reached.   The Japanese report their total easulties at
little over 3,000 killed and wounded.
The principal Russian easulties   occurred in determined counter attacks
on each village captured by the Japanese.     The Russian attacking parties were iu many cases entirely annihilated.   For the first time     the
Russians have met the Japanese on
an equal fooling with strong defensive positions to depend on, and for
the first time they attacked the Jap-
auose in their own trenches.     The
Russians everywhere fought bravely,
but   they    were unable lo drive the
lapanese out or hold their own positions against fierce charges.     The
Russians retired un every case at the
first charge and then made repeated

pulp mill and later on a paper mill
at Quateino, shows that Ibis long neglected industry Is to he taken up
seriously In British Columbia. A
number, of yiears ago a small paper
mill was erected at Alhcrni, hut
whether from lack ol capital or other causes the project, fell through.
But knowing What an immense stride
Eastern Canada has made .in turning
its water-power and wood to good
use in producing pulp and paper, if
seems full time that Ilritish Columbia was making a move in the same
direction. Last year there were thir-
ly-nlno pulp mills in Canada, with
an output in round numbers of near- j
ly three hundred thousand tons, an j
increase ol thirty-live thousand 'Ions
over the previous year, and valued
at $11,22(1,000. Sonic idea ol tho
growth of this industry may lie gained by noting thai in 1881 Uic'fo were
only live such mills in operation
with nn output ol sixty-three thousand dollars. Both In tlio United States nnd especially In Orcal Britain,
there is a ready market lor this pulp

How Many People In Ladysmith?
A canvass of the city is being made for subscribers to
the I'riily 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
antl immediate vicinity. Ihis means all ofthe 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 down a guess of the'number of
people our census, which will be taken with reasonable accuracy will show.
Envelopes will be given with the card. Write down your
guess, sign your name, put the card iu ihe euvelope and seal
it up; cither 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,
Thc envelopes will then be opened and the following prizes
given:
1. To thc 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 coining second nearest, j. 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.

Natural Grace.
Every woman wants to be graceful
Awkwardness is beauty's greatest foe,
and, although its possessor may have
a pretty face, still she Is placed at a
decided disadvantage. Her lack of ease
Is painfully apparent, giving her personality an Incompleteness' thnt le far
from pleasing. A great French writer
once sold, "Grace Is more beautiful
than beauty." Beauty is something that
is purely physical, while grace is a
combination of the qualities of tact,
amiability, common sense and refine-
ment, all producing a charming Impression, says Julia Teresa Butler In tbe
Pittsburg Observer. The principal quality of grace Is good taste. Tbe conversation of the woman with the truly cultivated mind will be naturally easy and
pleasing, for she will avoid incongruities of speech. The manner and actions
will reveal simplicity nnd good breeding, and her attire will always be in accordance with her surroundings.
The Hedlctne Closet.     —
Tho bathroom closet is usually crowded with bottles end packages, but it
does not often have exactly the assortment of medicines and appliances called
for In emergencies. Clear out the old
Stuff, half emptied bottles, etc., once In
awhile and see that there are always
on hand the simple remedies most often
needed In tbe family. Ammonia, witch
base), sweet oil and llmewater should
be there and a 1 per cent solution of
carbolic acid with which to batbe
wounds and scratches. If a cut Is first
bathed In carbolic und then painted
with collodion, there will be little bleeding. Tbe sweet oil aud llmewater
which the druggist will mix in exactly
tbe right proportions la the best of
remedies for a burn. Add to these a
ten cent box of absorbent cotton, a roll
of antiseptic bandages und a hot water
bag, aud the closet will be ready for or.
dlnnry accidents.
Hygiene.
Drinking much ot mealtimes retards
digestion of solids. A little good soup
before a meal Is ns good as a tonic to
impart vigor to digestion. One ladleful
is enough. A small cup of coffee at the
end of thc meal Is better than taking a
mouthful of hot fluid utter every bite
Coffee nets on the Intestines and heart
Tea stimulates the brain and kidneys.
It Is more often adulterated than coffee and Is often astringent from being
steeped too long. "Boiled ten Is poison" is n very good sentence to keep
constantly in mind If you are fond of
tea yourself or are making it for others. An astringent delays digestion.
Green tea Is very astringent
Marriage as a Profession.
Marriage for a girl Is undoubtedly
■ profession, and a profession which
requires an education. She must recognize how much depends upon her
health and the health of those committed to her care; how much depends
on her being a careful manageress of
her household and of the money put
Into her bands for use for tbe welfare
of others. Above all, she should be
taught tbat wives uud mothers are
made, not born, nnd no girl should attempt to murry without having received some Instruction In the science
of housekeeping and of making money
go as fur as It possibly can.
Attractive Kitchens.
A well known woman, who makes
the distinction between homckecplng
and housekeeping, calls tbe kitchen the
heart of the borne and Insists tbat after Its simple fashion It should be as attractive as auy other room. In this
day of cheap wall papers she suggests
frequent papering three or four times
yearly, greatly preferring the bright
variety nnd cleanliness thus secured to
any ndvnntagcs resulting from the use
of paint, which Is more expensive to
renew and more laborious to keep
clean.
Flannels.
It Is a mistake to Iron flannels. If
pulled ont evenly while on the Hue, so
thnt thoy. dry In good shape, and if
when dry they are folded and put In
the bottom of the clothes basket and
the other clothes piled ou them, they
twill be smoothed enough to suit anybody lint a crank. Hot Irons take the
life out of flannel
Oil Baths.
An oil bath Is often very beneficial to
a fragile child or adnlt After a warm
bath dip tbe fingers In a cup of sweet
oil nnd go over the entire surface of the
body, using only as much oil as the
skin will take np. This will often fatten a thin, scrawny child or nn adult

First Politician—Of course, you consider yourself master of tho situation?
Second Politician—Quess you haven't

"Oh, I'm sure she isn't as eld as ska

"Perhaps not, but I'm sure she's older,
than she thinks she looks."-

But old men,.spinning their yarns, start

THISTLES WIN.
Previous to thc senior .-match, the
Thistles and Red Dc'.ils played a
very lively game, the Thistles winning by 7 goal; to 3. There was a
good deal of rivalry between the
(Ives, and their Irienils ebcend them
on lustily as they struggled. It was
hot irom start to finish, hut the Red
Devils seemed too light lor their opponents, although they tackled with
a vim and (ought hard to score. In
the first hall the Thistles alone scared, Hewlett taking one point on a
free throw and Sanderson hasketting
the ball just before thc whistle sounded. In thc second half Sanderson
and Hewlett each scored a goal from
the field and the Bed Devils made
three points, one on a tree throw by
McMillan and two by McMillan from
thc field.

Seattle "P.-I." Two 18-inch pumps
commenced working about 4 o'clock
and an hour later, the vessel was-well
out of the water. The examination
shows that the hurricane and wea-
llicr decks are amass of filth and
slime. The vessel's furnishings
throughout arc ruined, and she will
have to be re'litled at a cost of
about $50,000. The vessel was raised by the building ol a coffer dam
around her hull, pumps then being
put in operation. There are probably 5(10 tons of cargo still in the To-
peku. While her 'machinery withstood the action oi the sea water
with very little injury, very little of
the cargo is of any value. With the
cargo removed, the owners and un.
(lerwritcrs will proceed to determine
the source of the leak. Then will
follow an investigation hy the. United States board of marine inspectors.
